Understanding the Difference Between an Interpretation and a Translation of the Bible is Crucial

Jesus warned us to “Beware of the SCRIBES…”(Mark 12:38). These were the religious leaders who were interpreters and transcribers of the Scriptures. This warning especially holds true in our modern church world today! Jesus also strongly censured the prideful Pharisees for allowing their “Jewish traditions” to take precedence over the Word given by God (Mark 7:7, 9), and I would like to bring the same warning to those who may not be familiar with what I am about to share. Please don’t let what “traditional and nominal Christianity” has taught, (which will be counter to the Biblical insights I will share), keep you from considering what the originally inspired Scriptures do teach as truth from God’s Holy Word. Prayerfully, wait upon the Lord to personally confirm His Word by His Word. Also keep in mind that the Word of God WILL NEVER CONTRADICT ITSELF!

I’m sure there will be those, who, like myself, at various times in my Christian walk, have not clearly understood many of the foundational doctrines of Christianity, as contained in the originally inspired languages that were used to write our Old and New Testaments. Because of not having an accurate understanding of what the Scriptures were actually teaching in the originally inspired languages, I was, (like many who also may be reading this material), will be tempted to dismiss, new insights from the Word, without giving serious consideration to what the originally inspired Scriptures actually reveal.

When I seriously began to study the originally inspired Greek and Hebrew Scriptures, I found to my utter amazement that many of my doctrinal beliefs were the result of English interpretations of Scripture rather than accurate translations of the original languages. I found what accurately translated Bible doctrines reveal and encompass, are so counter, in many cases, to what we have been taught in our traditional churches in this modern age. Erroneous interpretations most often are, without question, accepted as Biblical truth, when in fact, this is not the case.

Unwary Christians in the body of Christ are ignorantly unaware, just as I was for a large part of my Christian experience, of the many translation errors that exist in our modern-day Bibles. Through the years I have run across what I deemed to be erroneous interpretations myself, which I later found Hebrew and Greek scholars also slated as erroneous. These are found especially in the majority of our English translations (rather interpretations) of the originally God inspired—Hebrew and Greek and Aramaic Scriptures.

Translation errors of the original,inspired languages of the Bible, have been the basis for numerous erroneous doctrines and the divisions that have created (i.e. denominations) and various movements within Christ’s Body. The Apostle Paul stated this was inevitable, for when there is not absolute agreement upon the originally inspired Scriptures—there cannot be true unity within the Body of Christ. True unity is the result of having the same mind (beliefs), thoughts (opinions) and purposes (agendas) when it comes to God’s Holy Word.

These translation errors have been not only the basis for the creation of denominations within Christianity but also for denominational bias, in how the Scriptures are interpreted among various groups of Christians. How many times do we hear things like: “that’s your interpretation” when discussing Christian doctrinal views.

(1 Corinthians 1:10) Let there be no divisions in the
church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and
purpose. NLT

(1 Corinthians 11:19) But, of course, there must be
divisions among you so that you who have God’s approval
(regarding the truth) will be recognized! NLT

(1 Thessalonians 5:12) And we ask you, brethren, to
know those laboring among you, and leading you in the
Lord, and admonishing you (lit: teaching, correcting and
warning you). YLT
(Young’s Literal Translation)

The Bible tells us to KNOW THOSE WHO LABOR AMONG YOU… As a Bible researcher and teacher since 1985, I have found the importance of this admonition to be a vital key to not only avoiding deception, but more importantly to discerning what is not accurate. Christianity has MANY teachers but very true mentors or “fathers” who are mature mentors of God’s Word… (1 Corinthians 4:15) For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers…

When we are told to KNOW our leaders and teachers, what we need most to know is— do their beliefs, opinions and agendas conflict with the originally inspired Scriptures? Knowing these things, especially the history of our early Church Fathers (mentors), is of utmost importance. Very few pastors and teachers in the traditional churches today teach accurate church history and the writings of the early church fathers (the first century fathers). After the first century, many pagan philosophers entered the church and caused a perversion of Christian doctrines to fit their own pagan ideas and philosophies that were adopted by the Roman Church to become Roman Catholic doctrines.

Our church leaders for the first generation, after the death of Jesus Christ, were the Twelve Apostles, who laid the foundation for the beliefs, opinions and purposes that were based upon what God’s Word (Jesus Christ—our head cornerstone) revealed to them. It is by His Holy Spirit, that the truth from God was revealed to the Apostles through the writings of the O.T. prophets, in which New Testament applications were given to them as part of the doctrinal foundation for God’s Church. (Ephesians 2:19-20) …you are …members of the household of God… having been built on the foundation of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. NKJV

There is NO NEW REVELATION outside of what is revealed in the Bible. Adding to or taking away from the Bible’s inspired Word (also called “prophecy”) is forbidden. (Revelation 22:18-19) For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy (God’s inspired words) of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book… And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

The original Christian doctrines were built upon the WORD OF GOD (i.e. Jesus Christ), this means All “Christian doctrine” (teaching) must align with the Chief Corner Stone (i.e. our plumb line for accuracy). Thus, what was preached for the first 100 to 150 years by the founding Apostles and later by those Church Fathers that were taught directly from them, are what we need to base our doctrinal beliefs upon. I say this because, many changes occurred due to differing interpretations of these foundational doctrines, due to the many gnostic, pagan and various philosophical ideas (i.e. tares) that were being planted among the teachings of the Apostles, who were continually fighting against the TARES TEACHINGS that were infiltrating the early churches from its very beginning.

Therefore, we must understand where a doctrine (teaching) originated and by whom a doctrine has been propagated by. I have learned it is also especially important to understand the perspective it is being interpreted from, in order to discern any personal bias coming from their cultural beliefs and traditions that may be involved in a leader’s personal interpretation of the Word that may conflict with what was given as originally inspired doctrines to the Apostles.

(Colossians 2:8) Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual (dark) powers of this world, rather than from Christ. NLT

(1 Timothy 6:20-21) O Timothy, guard and keep the deposit entrusted to you! (i.e. from the founding Apostles of the Church). Turn away from the irreverent babble and godless chatter, with the vain and empty and worldly phrases, and the subtleties and the contradictions in what is falsely called knowledge and spiritual illumination… For by making such profession some have erred (missed the mark) as regards the faith. AMP

There were those who professed Christianity, in the *patristic era, who were looked up to as the intellectuals of their day and were highly revered for their knowledge and (high sounding) ideas.

NOTE: Patristics is the study of the early Christian writers who are designated as early Church Fathers (authorities). The Patristic era began at the end of the 1st century (when the New Testament was almost completed and John the last Apostle, died in 100 A.D.) and it ended towards the close of the 8th century. NOTE: Many doctrines were embraced that were far outside the realm of belief of the founding Apostles. Many of their teachings were twisted and perverted by “Church authorities” to fulfill their personal agendas and biases.

These many “intellectual instructors” were looked up to and followed because your average person could not read or write and had to depend upon the intellectuals to teach them. Many of these men (of which their writings have been preserved) became leaders within the Church after the death of the apostles. These men are known to us as the “early (not the original founding) church Fathers.” They came from various backgrounds also having various pagan beliefs, opinions and agendas that often came into conflict with what was given through inspiration by God to the founding Apostles. Unless we have an accurate understanding of the background, culture and history of the era in which these men lived, we will not know who among them may or may not be entirely right in their theological opinions and views (as measured by the originally inspired Scriptures).

From their teachings and writings many “Christian” doctrines have been adopted, which in reality were merely “traditions and opinions of man” and have nothing to do with the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets who received their inspiration and directives from God. The Bible tells us knowledge is something Satan uses to promote pride in human beings. Even a cursory study of the Church Fathers reveals how pride was used to promoted division and evils of all kinds among the early church leaders—just as it has since the days of the Apostles until now.

Only those Church Fathers who did adhere to the doctrines of Christ and rightly divided the originally inspired Greek and Hebrew Scriptures, are those, credence should be given to as true leaders and teachers—within the Body of Christ. The same must hold true when it comes to sanctioning leaders and their teachings in our churches today — otherwise we become prime candidates for embracing erroneous teachings and doctrines, even those from demonic spirits that will be seducing people, especially in the end times … (2 Timothy 2:15-19) Work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval. Be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly explains (“rightly dividing”i.e. KJV) the truth. NLT

The above text makes the point that God’s Word (i.e. His words from the originally inspired languages (i.e. Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek), need to be correctly explained (i.e. defined) or as the KJV states, rightly divided, which in the Greek text means to dissect. The dissection of the phrase “rightly divided” in the original Greek can be found in the following more comprehensive “Alternate Literal Translation” (ALT) summary of what (2 Timothy 2:15) is literally saying in the originally inspired Greek text:

To rightly divide or correctly explain the Word of God, literally means: to
ACCURATELY and truthfully dissect and translate God’s “originally inspired Word” in a comprehensive and decisive manner. In other words, this means dissecting the Word gives us a deeper understanding of as many aspects of truth as God reveals to us from the various shades of meaning to the Words being dissected. So, there can be a deeper understanding of what is being studied and not just a superficial perspective. The more comprehensive the study of the Bible’s topics and the originally inspired Words used to teach us about them, the deeper our understanding will
be. This will result in settling issues that we need to be correctly understood. The deeper our understanding the greater our freedom of error.

***NOTE:

The phrase rightly dividing or correctly explaining are translated from the Greek word NT:3718 ortho-tomeo (or-thot-omeh’-o); The Strong’s Concordance says: This means to dissect (expound) correctly (the divine message); it is a compound word coming from: NT:3717 orthos (or-thos’) meaning: to be honest, right, plum and straight (i.e. to extend uprightly without perverting, twisting or wresting (i.e. forcing) and to be direct (i.e. extending straightly without deviating, swerving or stopping, to be straightforward, FACTUAL: To have true, accurate, genuine and real facts (i.e. aspects of truth) not opinions or interpretations of or reactions to …what is factual. The second compound word is: NT:5114 tomoteros (tom-o’-ter-os); meaning: to cut; to dissect in a manner that is straight, comprehensive and decisive (i.e. settling an issue).

The KJV Bible, although it has done an enormous amount of good and has been used by God to bless English speaking Christians since its creation, is however, not an INFALLIBLE TRANSLATION of the Bible. This is because every translation, including the KJV, is often the translators INTERPRETATION of the original Holy inspired languages, rather than an accurately dissected TRANSLATION of the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek languages of the Bible.

An INTERPRETATION involves the translators UNDERSTANDING of the original word meanings, which are the chosen languages of God that were used to inspire those who wrote the Holy Bible. The accuracy of a translation of the original texts is dependent upon how knowledgeable the translator is concerning the original word meanings their etymology and the grammatical structure of the language being translated, as well as the cultural nuances involved.

Therefore, not having a complete understanding of word meanings and grammar, will cause the translator to give an interpretation that lacks the full scope and meaning of a word or text or even worse, give an inaccurate interpretation, due to their doctrinal or cultural bias in their interpretation of what they are translating.

An accurate Bible translation is supposed to be rendering a text from a source language (i.e. Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) into a target language of a culture (i.e. English, Spanish etc.), while preserving the fullness and intent of the original meaning. Therefore, we should NOT be looking to modern translations rather than the original languages of the Bible, this is imperative for a complete and accurate understanding of the word meanings found in the Scriptures.

God’s inspiration still remains upon the languages He chose to inspire, and as we study these words and texts we find a deeper level of many layers or applications of truth and understanding that goes beyond human (private interpretations) and reveals any errors that result from human interpretations. The Holy Spirit is the interpreter of all truth, and it is only through Him that we will accurately translate His inspired words.

When Truth Requires a New Perspective

I will now delve much deeper into the Word of God to gain a greater understanding than the majority of English Bible translations reveal, concerning the subjects of eternal punishment, hell and the Lake of Fire and brimstone. Why? Because when pride will not allow a person to receive the truth from the Holy Spirit, because of a personal agenda for resisting the truth… God resists the proud (James 4:6), and His Spirit of truth cannot operate within a prideful person. I would sincerely hope that the reader will lay aside any personal agendas or opinions and ask the Holy Spirit to be their teacher, as we go further into this study.

It is also most important for one to do their own research and study, so the truth can be confirmed through the Scriptures by the Holy Spirit—the revealer of all truth.
Without Scriptural confirmation, truth does not become established or firmly fixed within our spirit, leaving room for confusion and doubt to work, allowing this leaven to grow.

Again, I want to emphatically state, that most of our modern English Bible translations have translation errors and denominational biases that depart from many of the literal originally inspired word meanings. Without seeing the true scope of meanings for words in the originally inspired languages of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, many like myself for a good part of my Christian walk, have or will form wrong beliefs because of not studying the Bible from their original literal word meanings.

At present, I find there are only a very few, writers and teachers I currently know of who take the time to study the originally inspired texts of the Bible, to confirm what they teach as truth. When I do run across those who teach from the original texts, it is a thrill and joy to study their writings and teachings!

Because, so much of what these authors and teachers say, confirms what is also revealed to me from the originally inspired texts of Scripture. Sadly, just as I did for many years, the majority of writers and teachers today, rely on English Bible translations (yes, including the KJV) to form their ideas and doctrines; but these are missing the mark on so many subjects. I personally cut my teeth on the KJV Bible, and the Strong’s Concordance, both of which have elements I now find lacking in accuracy or true depth of meaning, especially since becoming aware of more resourceful older lexicons for Hebrew and Greek word studies.

Therefore, in case any think I am writing my own “private translation” to the verses translated from the originally inspired definitions of God’s words, I strongly urge ALL to do their own word studies, using multiple resources to confirm the truth and receive greater clarity. Do not put your faith in man but only in the Word of God and the Holy Spirit who reveals all truth.

However, I will say, the Lord has used English translations to bless me with much truth, but because of being imparted some of these errors, the mixture of truth and error has hindered me in receiving an accurate understanding of the truth, when it is presented. This is due to having learned what is wrong and forming an erroneous perspective. When this is the case, one will struggle with doubt and wavering, until the truth is firmly confirmed through Scripture, when having to change an erroneous perspective to align with the truth. In other words, mixture can make our grasp of the truth a slippery struggle until the error are seen and cast down and the truth is confirmed and FIRMLY established.

(2 Peter 3:16-18) …those who are not taught or mis-taught having no
confirmation are not resolute but vacillating people
, who twist to their own

destruction … the Scriptures … become aware …of the error that is wrong so you do not become a companion to seduction… but grow in the grace and knowledge from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. ALT

Watch for my PART 2 post in this series … dealing with various Biblical teachings that revolve around current BIBLE INTERPRETATIONS rather than ACCURATE originally inspired TRANSLATIONS concerning some important ETERNAL REALITIES.

The Church:The Silence and the Invisible Followers of Jesus-Bending Their Knee to Ceaser and Trying Not to Rock the Boat of Comfort-Which is Sinking Fast!

By J.H.

Where is the church? It’s a rhetorical question I know, but really, where are the Christian leaders? Pastors? Preachers? Christian men? I really am increasingly disturbed by the fact that the modern church is rolling over so easily. I guess it shouldn’t surprise us, if history has shown us anything, it is that it repeats itself. Mostly because we are to ignorant to learn from our past.

Hitler rose to power with the backing of church to a large degree, Jews went to the death camps while the church sang louder. And so here we are again, in the same sort of mess and no real leaders. What am I talking about? Look around your church, I’d be willing to bet that the pastor and the leadership team is encouraging you to wear a mask to the service, if they are opening the doors at all. Why? Because the government said to, and we are supposed to under submission to the ruling authorities.

They are quick to quote Romans 13, but let me ask you this, who wrote Romans, including chapter 13? If you said Paul, 2 points for you. Paul wrote a number of books in the Bible, and I ask, where was he when he wrote a good number of these books? If you said prison, another 2 points for you. Now, why was he in prison??? BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO BOW DOWN TO A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT THAT TOLD HIM TO QUIT PREACHING CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED!!!!! In fact a number of the early disciples all spent time behind bars or were beaten, or killed, because they were told to quit teaching by a ruling authority and they continued in defiance. So where does Romans 13 come into play?

According to Romans 12:18 we are told “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.” We are not supposed to go looking for trouble. There are times when as believers we need to agree to disagree, shake the dust form our feet and move on. Even on some matters concerning government.

Romans 13:1 says, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.”

This is the verse that so many churches draw on to show why we as believers should do whatever is asked, by using the excuse, we are “just following orders”. They say, “God put the government there and I am supposed to be obedient, so even though I don’t like it, I’ll go along.”

However, Exodus 20:3 God states that we are to “have no other gods before me”.

Romans 13 is in play until the government, ruling class, authority over you, whatever you want to call it, decides that it is the final arbiter and sets itself up in the position reserved for God alone. When the state or the government moves to exclude God and to erect itself in that position, a Christian has an obligation before God to resist, and bear the penalties should they come. This means that resistance has consequences from those whose power you are resisting.

Case in Point – Daniel – He knew that the “royal statute” had been passed stating that no one should be petitioning any god or man other than king Darius, and by our churches standard today, he should have just sat quietly and said, God will be there in 30 days when this statute is over and then I’ll be able to pray again. But instead he went to his upper room as he always did, and prayed like he always did. Regardless of the consequences. Because he knew that God’s law was greater than man’s law and the statute passed by Darius was a move to supplant God’s position.

Case in point #2 – Shadrach, Mesach and Abednigo – Again, the government made a move to take over a position reserved for God alone. Three men stood against the forces arrayed, knowing the consequences.

But I can hear those of you saying “those are Old Testament, we are not under the Old Testament any more”. Fine, how about Acts 4:13 “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. 14 And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a [a]notable miracle has been done through them is evident[b] to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. 17 But so that it spreads no further among the people, let us severely threaten them, that from now on they speak to no man in this name.”
18 So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.” 21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding no way of punishing them, because of the people, since they all glorified God for what had been done. 22 For the man was over forty years old on whom this miracle of healing had been performed.

Now they were commanded by the ruling authority to speak to “no man in this name”, and what did they do? They defied the authorities to continue as they had been doing. This continues, and shortly there after Steven is stoned to death and the church is scattered.

So, do I take issue with the Church blindly following a mask “mandate”. You bet I do, not because a mask is evil in itself, but because Christians have become so blind that they don’t bother to ask “why?” Why would the state ask me to put on a mask that doesn’t even protect me from a virus sized particle? Why would my pastor encourage me to follow a government that is increasingly usurping God’s rightful position? Where is my church going to draw the line? When is enough, enough?

The fact of the matter is, Church is a business now. People in the seats, money in the offering. Sure they do some good things but as a whole the church has become nothing more than a shiny version of the world …We don’t preach against sin, sure we give it lip service but we won’t confront sin biblically. We don’t disciple, we have a discipleship class but we don’t take a young man or woman under our wing and live life with them for the next 20 years and encourage them to do the same with the next generation. We don’t take a stand if it might upset the people in the pews. We don’t even seem to care what the Bible really says, because if we did, Romans 13 would be a wake up call, not a order to sit down and shut your mouth.

Next time someone says you are to be in submission to the governing authority because it’s God ordained, look them in the eye and say “So, I guess your good with abortion then? Because the ruling authorities have said that’s ok under the law as well”. See what they say.

Wake up… you are going to lose friends if you take a stand.
You are going to be mocked, if you take a stand.
You are going to lose business if you take a stand.
You are most likely going to be estranged from people you love and care for, if you take a stand.
But in the reality of eternity, you don’t have that much to lose; and a heck of a lot to gain.


As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

ALERT!! American Cities Are Being Occupied & Foreign UN-Backed Troops Are In America! Civil War II Has Begun!!!

In what has been well-published in the Independent Media, doctors have called into question the CDC and lies we are being told. Many doctors, are making their proclamations from Washington DC. And what did they get for their trouble? Their website sponsors were coerced into taking away their websites. All of their social media sites were cancelled and any post discussing the group of these doctors’ claims were deleted.  Social media is breaking the law though their illegal, open forum law-violating censorship, but who’s following the law. The censorship of these doctors goes beyond the claims they are making about vaccines. This censorship, which is illegal, is designed from letting America wake up to the fact that not only do we have extreme medical fraud, we are in the process of being occupied by foreign entities.

What will follow the occupation of cities by UN guerilla forces, the Muslim Brotherhood and domestic-based revolutionary groups such as Antifa? The Red Dawn invasion will commence and I am becoming convinced by China’s actions in the South China Sea, in and around Taiwan, that World War III will happen simultaneously to a Red Dawn invasion through the Mexico border with the US.

Is America Waking Up?

Maybe 20% of America is awake to various degrees. That number cannot be allowed to grow because the United Nations and the George Soros mercenaries could not handle a well-armed public in full rebellion.

Less than 1% is subjugating the country through riots which are sponsored by George Soros and yes, UN interests. The UN is clearly invoking the “Kigali ” Principles, (guerrilla style, for now). The Kigali Principles provide for the UN to enter a country of their choice and make humanitarian changes (i.e. invade and kill locals until they acquiesce to UN authority). The United States was signed into the Kigali Principles during the lame-duck period and final days of the Obama administration. The US also signed the UN Small Arms Treaty at the same time with Obama and Burisma’s own favorite ally, John Kerry, were the US signatories. Gun confiscation is in our future. The mayor of Austin, Texas called for gun confiscation, yesterday!

The UN involvement in American riots in conjunction with Antifa is what I believe is the first phase of the implementation of the Kigali Principles. Also, what is not being reported through the mainstream media is that the CHICOMS (Chinese Communists) have an on-the-ground presence at these riots as well as do the Muslim Brotherhood.  Why are these “foreign groups” involved in the rioting? Because the Soros backed forces cannot generate enough manpower on their own to do the job which is to neutralize and control every Democratic Party run city.

This is the UN foothold into our country. Further, this is a great way to embed UN Kigali-friendly troops among the rioters until it is time to make a massive foreign military presence and attempt to implement a coup against Trump and the American people. We are on the verge of this happening. This is why we are seeing Attorney General Barr change his tune and actually take on the Democrats in Congress. He does want to be purged.

From 3 discussions I have had with various federal officials and one former, well-connected ARSOF source (Army Special Operations Forces), they are all confirming that America is witnessing a revolutionary army that is in the early stages of taking down and controlling Democratic Party controlled cities with top level Democrats involved. Big tech is also doing their bidding. It is 1861 and the Civil War has begun as the metaphoric shots on Ft. Sumter have already taken place. Welcome to Civil War II.

Why are these forces making their move right now? That is because average Americans, in ever greater number are waking up to the fact that they are playing in a rigged game. The ruse that has been thrown at the American people that our nation was working towards reopening is the single biggest lie ever perpetrated upon a people by its government.

Some of us have awakened to the fact that the President is no longer in charge and is merely a figure head. The very moment that the Bill Gates loyalists from the CV-19 team decided that it was a good idea to fraudulently include “flu-like” symptoms in the Pre-Phase One along-side the CV-19 infections as a determinant if a local government could proceed into the Phase One with less restrictiveness, I knew we were playing in a rigged game. I also came to the realization that Trump has been the victim of an internal coup.

Further, as I have documented in April of 2020, the FDA Commissioner admitted, twice, that the CV-19 test manufacturers were not required to validate their tests for accuracy. So, we have no idea what the numbers are and this is why we are seeing massive false positive test results which is the excuse to continue the lockdown of the country.

 Finally, Fauci’s strategy of completely eradicating CV-19, is a pipe dream. No virus has ever been eradicated through vaccines. CV-19 will be with us indefinitely and there is nothing that can be done about this other than learn to live with it.

 I have no details, but his body language and lack of the old feisty Trump speaks to the fact that he is not calling the shots. Will Trump regain his footing? I have no idea but right now, Democratic politicians who are supporting rioting in their cities should all be arrested and tried for treason. However, the present Trump, will not do what must be done.

One angle of this conspiracy will force America to take debilitating vaccines in response to a virus that is conclusively been proven to only attack elderly with compromised health conditions that were killing them anyway.

Gyms that make people healthy are closed, yet, cartel-mafia and CHICOM influenced casinos remain open for their money laundering capabilities. Sources in California say that their casinos are skimming money and sending it to these revolutionary forces. Communist China has already been caught supplying arms to these forces in three instances. These revolutionaries fear Jesus and the they should. They have responded by limiting religion as much as possible. You can’t go to a movie but you can gamble.

It’s crazy, but this is all designed to put America under house arrest as the economy of this country is destroyed. People will hate their lives so much that they will gladly take any vaccine, no matter how debilitating. The ignorant populace will blame Trump and the Bolshevik Democratic Party will take over and we will be finding ourselves living in Stalinist 1950’s Soviet Union complete with massive purges which always accompanies revolutionary movements such as this one is shaping up to be.

From another angle, America is being occupied by foreign interests and we do not even see it. As stated, your national stability is in jeopardy and cities are in the process of being occupied. Extreme censorship is designed to not allow the sleeping 80% of the country to wake up. Soon, there will be no Independent Media. Real fighting in the streets will ensue. Most law enforcement and federal agents will quit and go home to protect their families.

What will the military do? Some will fight and this is when Red Dawn and World War III will commence. Are you prepped? You are almost out of time.

Life—Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness Gospel

By Karen Connell

*All Scripture is from the KJV or NKJV unless otherwise specified—all numbers  and definitions are from the Strong’s Concordance  and the Complete Word Studies Dictionary (CWSD).

You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different …kind of gospel. (2 Corinthians 11:4)

Before challenging the popular “Pursuit of Happiness Gospel” to be                discussed in this article, I would first of all like to state that as true and             uncompromising followers of Jesus Christ – we are commissioned as His ambassadors and are duty bound by Him to fulfill certain appointed assignments while living on this earth. Those  assignments include the following:

#1  Preaching the Gospel throughout the creation…

*(Mark 16:15) He said to them, “Go into all the world, and preach the Good News among the whole creation.

#2  Make disciples (true sanctified followers of Christ) in every           nation…

*(Matthew 28:19-20) Therefore go, and make disciples among all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit … teaching them to observe all things that I commanded you.

#3 Live obedient, sanctified lives (separated, holy, consecrated lives) that honor God…

*(Philippians 3:20; 2 Corinthians 6:17; Ephesians 6:12; 2 Timothy 2:3-4) For our citizenship is in heaven … Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord… For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places… You therefore must endure hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ… No one engaged in this warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier.

As Christians our loyalty is not duty bound to support any earthly nation and its politics, but we are duty bound to support and propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. We are of course, to show respect for and pray            for the leaders of nations (according to the mind of God) and honor their laws (as long as they do not dishonor God). Any serious Bible Student will not dispute the fact that the kingdoms or nations of this world are                kingdoms of darkness, under the domain of Satan in this present age (1 Cor 4:4). We are not commissioned as God’s people to reform or save through our political activism, nations or their political man made                systems, including those of the United States of America, Great Britain or any country for that matter. That was the very thing the disciples were expecting of Jesus while He was here on earth with them.

However, as Christians, we are duty bound to deliver the people from the power of darkness within their nation and translate them into the Holy Nation of God’s Son…

(Colossians 1:12-14) He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light… For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.

Christians must realize that earthly “nations” are the result of man’s doing (as a result of the rebellion at the tower of Babel). Yes, God allows man to disband and erect nations, for as history shows,  nations come and nations go, but God uses all of them to play a part in His providential and eternal plan.  Here is what God says about “nations” and yes, this includes the United States of America…

(Isaiah 40:14-15, 17) Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice? Does He need instruction about what is good? Did someone teach Him what is right or show him the path of justice? …No, for all the nations of the world are but a drop in (His) bucket. They are nothing more than dust on (His) scales… The nations of the world are worth nothing to Him. In His eyes they count for less than nothing— mere emptiness and froth.

Why does God say this? Because once again, all nations of this world are  under the rule of Satan, the god of this world. They lie in darkness, and will continue to do so until Jesus Christ returns and sets up His   earthly Kingdom called “the Holy Nation.” Until then God’s people need to be about the business of their King, Jesus Christ – and the business of carrying out His agenda, as I    described at the beginning of this newsletter.

God’s People are Being Deceived by a Politically Correct Gospel

I recently read an article on a well-known watchman’s website, whom I respect and have supported for many years. The article grieved my spirit, and as I sought the Lord as to why it bothered me, He revealed to me information I was not completely aware of that we as Christians, need to consider very seriously. The name of the article was entitled: “Time to Act: Debunking Christian Excuses for Inaction in the Face of Evil.” In it the author, Jim Hoft said the following …  

“Our freedom to follow and obey God is actively being undermined and eroded before our eyes by the very authorities established to protect it. The freedom to speak the truth, preach the word of God, follow our convictions, and evangelize the lost is being aggressively challenged in the courts, in the public square, by the education system, and by the media. Yet, alarmingly, the governing authorities –- established to uphold (these) God-given rights enshrined in the Constitution and act as a bulwark between such an onslaught and our freedom — can no longer be trusted to do so.”

Let me interject something here, which is—of course, preaching the Word, evangelizing and obeying God is going to be undermined by the god of this world and those who serve him! God has allowed Satan to place his people in power to do just that. I must also interject that speaking the truth— preaching the word of God— following our convictions and evangelizing the lost are not “God-given RIGHTS;” they are God-given commandments that are meant to be carried out and obeyed— despite whatever amount of opposition or persecution comes from the courts— the public square— education systems or the media! Our ability to obey God is the product of our faith in God and our desire to please Him above all else! Our faith must be in Him and Him alone and not in our governing  authorities and our constitution to give us their “permission” to freely obey God. Hoft goes on to say…

“Thus, we have a decision to make.  Will we remain    spectators while our nation is under siege?  Know this: If we choose to remain spectators, the United States of America — and the great principles she was founded on — will fall.  This would be a terrible travesty not only for Americans, but for the world.  Since its founding, the United States has been a beacon of hope and help to the lost and vulnerable around the globe.  Through evangelism, aid, and protection, we (i.e. the American people) have helped lift whole nations out of poverty, injustice, and tyranny.  This ability to help other nations is dependent on our nation remaining free and true to its founding principles.  If America falls, our freedom and ability to preach the gospel to the nations falls with her.  If America falls, our freedom and ability to provide aid to those in need falls with her.  If America falls, our freedom and ability to provide protection to those who need it falls with her.

Or, will we join our nation’s Founders and make the sacrifices necessary to keep and maintain the nation they secured for us?  For, when great principles are at stake, great sacrifice is required.  The Founders understood this and made that sacrifice.  It is not right for us to celebrate their sacrifice and not be willing to make the same sacrifice (i.e. of rebelling against the present political system that is oppressing our “rights and freedoms”) when what they fought for is at risk of being destroyed.  Know that whatever it is you are clinging to, whatever it is that keeps you from standing, will be lost in the end if you do not stand now.  It is only a matter of time.  You have a choice: Sacrifice it yourself willingly now for the sake of your country, or lose it in the not-too-distant-future by force. What Can You Do? 1 (His answer to this question will be addressed later in this post… (*NOTE: Comments in parenthesis are mine)

In the above article, Jim Hoft labors upon the fact that this nation of the USA was founded upon “great principles.” Politically Conservative Christians believe these to be Christian principles and this is a common belief among large numbers of politically “Conservative Christians”– so they would heartily agree with Hoft that without these “great principles,” we do not have the “God-given rights” that gives us the  freedom and the ability to preach the gospel to the nations, to  provide aid to those in need or to provide protection  to others. The great principles he is alluding to, are found in the Bill of Rights and in the second sentence of the Declaration of Independence that reads:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. –That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men…”

All Men are Created Equal?

I would now like to comment on these unalienable (i.e. undeniable) Rights that are based upon two of the “great principles” mentioned above, which are (1) all men are created equal and (2) they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable (i.e. undeniable) “rights.”

First, I want to discuss the idea of all people being created equal. Equality is perfectly Biblical, and vital, because all human beings, simply due to the fact of being created by God in His image, is reason enough to be treated with the same or equal level of dignity, regardless of class, sex, race, or subgroup.  As Christians we are told to “honor all people” (1 Peter 2:17). This doesn’t mean we have to honor the evil things they do, but we do have to honor the person, why? Because as stated, they are a creation of God, they are His masterpiece.

Just as a  valuable artwork can be ruined by being subjected to a harmful environment of neglect and abuse, so that it becomes damaged and in the eyes of people, it is deemed worthless.

Yet, humanity is God’s master piece that has experienced just that. Many people we see, don’t seem worthy of being honored because they are so spoiled and defiled by sin. However, Jesus Christ died and paid the price to redeem all of God’s human masterpieces (the work of His hands),  so they could be restored to their former glorious original state. It may take much restoration and time to complete these renovations that requires enduring God’s refining fire, but He has promised to “restore all of His creation” because as I just said, the death of Jesus on the cross purchased the redemption and restoration for all of  God’s created beings—and it has been determined that…

“…at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth …  and that every tongue should confess that     Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11)

 Humanity as whole, despite our differences, are also equal, in the sense that all need to accept God’s gift of redemption and restoration. When you study the subject of equality, in the Scriptures, it reveals the principle of Biblical equality is associated with a corporate group that is diverse (e.g. through economics, social status, and gender) and these individuals have different positions and functions in that corporate body, but not having the “same” or “equal” number or kinds of spiritual gifts and duties—but still experiencing oneness, unity, partnership and a joint-inheritance.

But, by defining “equality” as individual “sameness” as found in the language of the Declaration of Independence, which does not use the biblical principle for equality to express “corporate unity,” as was just explained … this founding document distorts the realities of true equality (as God defines it in the Bible), because it points to “individualism” and a “libertarian” view (based on the philosophy of enlightenment — held by most of the “Founding Fathers,” (this will be explained in more detail shortly), and upon “individual rights” and “individual freedom (individualism).” This view sees individual justice and fairness through the lens of “sameness” and sees diversity of individual positions or amounts of possessions as unequal—meaning unjust. This destroys the concept of true “unity” (based on truth). Thus, the belief is that unity cannot be achieved unless there is “sameness”—which leads to perceived injustice and discrimination because there is not “sameness”  (i.e. its not “fair” others have more or less than I do).

Sameness to achieve equality, is Satan’s idea, in his rebellion against God, he wanted to be like and have the “same” amount of honor and power. He also knows God created humans to thrive and enjoy diversity among themselves, and of course anything we enjoy that God has created, he wants to destroy.

As a result, the idea of individual sameness, distorts and destroys God’s definition of “Equality.” Again, God’s view of “equality” is based upon diversity within a corporate body or group, and being unified or joined together by believing and embracing the same standard for truth (i.e. the Bible), this then is the basis for true equality and justice. This nation was unified as long as the Bible was the standard for truth and justice, but when it was replaced with man-made standards for individual equality—the standard became a secular humanism standard and not God’s spiritually holy Biblical standard.

Tolerance Versus Persecution

Another secular (not Biblical) “principle” put forth in the Declaration of Independence  is that of tolerance for every individual’s religion and beliefs. Freedom of religion means: ALL religions are viewed as “equal” (i.e.  To be given the same “amount of    honor” …  INCLUDING SATANISM and all occult religions).  No way should Christianity be viewed as “equal” in honor to satanism, or any other “religion” that is contrary to the Bible. God has given every human the “right” to choose right from wrong, but when wrong is chosen, it must be repudiated and exposed as dangerous and not to be tolerated.

The Establishment Clause in the First Amendment prohibits the government from establishing one religion for the nation (i.e. Christianity), as well as favoring or disfavoring one religion over another in its dealings. This is the hidden agenda of Satan that most Christians don’t discern!

This clause alone makes it very clear that this nation is NOT founded upon “Christian principles.” To honor one religion above another is seen as INTOLERANT and UNFAIR and as a form of persecution. So, if for instance, I do not tolerate the occult teaching their views and opinions in my children’s school, MY intolerance is labeled “discrimination” and again is viewed as a form of “persecution” against the “occult religion.” These “grand principles” as Hoft called them in his article, are Satan’s means for creating divisiveness and disunity. Our  form of  “democracy” is based on these principles, and is a (demonic) set up for social unrest and chaos—Satan’s intent of course.

God’s principle for true unity is based on all adhering to the same standard, which is the Bible. In past generations the courts and schools honored the Bible as God’s standard, and it was the basis for true unity and equality among the diversity of cultures in this country. Americans, back before the rebellious 1960’s, were generally of one mind, united in thought and purpose by their Biblical faith and Christian beliefs and the majority followed this Biblical principle that created unity in this nation … 

(1 Corinthians 1:10) I appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, to live in harmony with each other. Let there be no divisions in the church. Rather, be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.

Notice the Scripture above said let there be no “divisions” (disunity) IN THE CHURCH and did not say “let there be no diversity” (differences) in your nation. Believe it or not, God’s true Church is supposed to all believe the same thing and hold the same opinion concerning the truth, so there can be true equality (unity) among God’s Holy Nation! I lived through the protests and rebellion that      began in the 1960’s. The cry of the day was, “it’s YOUR THING do what you want to do…” It suddenly became all about “ME” and no longer about “WE” the people as a corporate group of Americans. This 1960’s rebellion brought about the removal of teaching the Bible and practicing prayer in the public schools of America and it became “unconstitutional” to do so. Why did professing Christians at that time allow this to happen? Because they were patriotically brainwashed in these public schools as children, to honor their founding Fathers and this nations founding documents, above God’s Word (that says as Americans we cannot favor one religion over another)! Thus, being patriotic and honoring the Constitution became more important than being obedient to God and His Word.

  Satan used these “inspired” documents that were subtly crafted through his divine hand upon its framers and have been used against many undiscerning American Christians who, as I stated, had been brainwashed by a “politically correct gospel,” to embrace these humanistic principles of the United States Constitution and of the Bill of Rights over the Bible. This subliminal brainwashing has been influential in leading Christians to believing they have the “right” to express their individual opinions, even on the interpretation of Scripture (God’s standard for truth) as an expression of their American “right to their freedom of religion,” and what’s more, they believe they the have the “right” for their opinion to be “tolerated”— and not be “discriminated” against. Because “intolerance,” for ones religious beliefs …is, as we shall see, not in accordance with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The pursuit of happiness

After all, as Americans, we have the “right” to our “pursuit of happiness,” which means we can support and pursue whatever activity, spiritual teacher or political leader “makes us happy” (pleases us). Any Scriptural rebuke or correction regarding ones choices for their pursuit of happiness, even brought against a professing “politically correct” Christian, who has been defiled by this political gospel, will simply answer a Scriptural rebuke with, “that’s your interpretation” (i.e. opinion). Many Christians have been deceived into believing we have no right to judge or impose a Biblical belief or standard upon anyone, because it is “unconstitutional.”

Thus, we have the “Constitutional foundation” for no longer imposing “consequences” (laws demanding punishments or penalties) for unbiblical “pursuits of happiness,” such as homosexual activity, occult practices, abortion etc. — for it is “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.” Because the politically correct Christian has allowed the political, secular humanistic standard of our “founding forefathers” to defile their perception and overshadow God’s Biblical standard, they have endorsed the “demoncratic” freedom to pursue whatever makes one feel happy, at the cost of disruption, disunity and the current total chaos that is now manifesting all around them. These “founding principles” have led us to the point where our “life” in America now means, no one (not even leadership authorities e.g. parents, pastors or police) have the right to oppose, punish or penalize people, for their “pursuit of happiness.” This is our “great American Way” called “life—liberty and the pursuit of happiness” — or more accurately …freedom from the law— called “lawlessness”). This kind of thinking is driven by demonic antichrist powers that have been part of this nations foundation from the very beginning.

Those preaching God’s warnings, restrictions, corrections and rebukes are labeled as intolerant discriminatory persecutors, filed with hate against those being “judged” guilty of wrong doing. Sadly, as a result, God’s warnings, restrictions, corrections and rebukes concerning sin are missing from  the majority of sermons preached in our modern day pulpits … for fear of being accused of being politically incorrect, by those whose minds have been defiled by this American politically correct gospel, which most evangelical politically correct conservative  Christians have been influenced by.

Those following this constitutional patriotic gospel are being influenced by  “another spirit”— that has deceived those under its power to believe (consciously or unconsciously) that restrictions, corrections and rebukes are “hate speech” (harsh and unloving) and that it violates the “personal unalienable right” to freedom from religion and religious persecution. Again, because their standard is no longer the Word of God, which admonishes us to rebuke and correct our brothers and sisters in Christ when an  ungodly standard is being embraced. Many are instead upholding this nations humanistic standard called the Constitution and Bill of Rights above God’s Word. This is why churches are complying to being forbidden to preach against gay rights (under the threat of losing their tax exempt status) and because they fear being viewed as unpatriotic.

Freedom from Persecution

The main reason the Puritan “Christians” left Europe, to become part of this “new nation”— was so they could be “free” from persecution, for believing and preaching the truth from the Bible. Jesus however, promised us that ALL who live a godly life and preach His truth would be persecuted:

(2 Timothy 3:12-13) Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution… But evil people and impostors will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.

It is abundantly clear, that our nation has now been overtaken by the forces of darkness to the extent that it has led deceived, undiscerning Christians and godless Americans into honoring and pledging allegiance to a God forsaking lawless nation, now demanding a LIFE of FREEDOM from law enforcement, so they can PURSUE HAPPINESS in every imaginable evil way. The libertine spirit had its “divine hand” upon the founders of this nation, as they framed its constitution to make its declaration of independence to obtain individual freedoms.

I am sure that the founders of this nation did not foresee how this nations people would ultimately destroy this country through their noble sounding principle of a “life of liberty and the pursuit of happiness” that would lead to horrible judgments from God that will bring this nation down. Americans have been deceived, by the libertine spirit that influenced this nations founding framers of the constitution, into thinking that living a LIFE of LIBERTY means having the freedom to make humanistic laws or to abandon godly ones in order to allow the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS by fulfilling every evil lust within the human carnal nature of its citizenry. Michael Austin, in an article he wrote entitled: “Our Bickering Founding Fathers and Their Messy, Flawed, Divinely Inspired Constitution,”2 said the following:

We like to think that things were different back then, when our “political deities,” known as the “Founding Fathers” framed, what many consider to be a “God-given or inspired Constitution” for this nation. That is the common view of most Americans (including professing Christians) in this twenty-first century, but it is also—utter nonsense and completely false! These men, which Christians revere as “Founding Fathers” were not the sort of men who agreed with each other about much of anything (there was no godly unity among them). Nor were they shy about discussing their disagreements in public or — in their response to political mutual insults— nor were they opposed to occasionally spitting on or even shooting at each other in a duel, (as did two of the participants in the 1800 election—Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr). And what did these “revered” men fight about?

Well, as it turns out, they fought about many of the same things that our government officials fight about today (and have continually fought about all along) such as taxation, the national debt, federal power, states’ rights, military readiness, and religion in the public square.” (Parenthesis mine).

Yet, deceived Christians still cling to the myth that things were more “God honoring” back then. Because of this belief many, have erected an idolatrous false image of “the Founding Fathers” and “the Framers of the Constitution” – as being a group of men possessing a “God inspired unified mind” – which again is utter nonsense and completely false.

This mythical collective idolatrous image is nothing more than what Michael Austin calls a “Founderstein,” a monstrous creature made up of the bits and pieces of Libertarian Patriots, long and safely dead, as Austin puts it. He goes on to say…

“In our modern-day political debates, the “Founderstein Monster” is usually referred to as “the intention of the Framers.” Nobody, of course, wants to be on the wrong side of history by opposing the collective weight of all of our revered political deities. And those who invoke the sacred name of “The Framers” in their debates, in order to sway their listeners to their viewpoint, do so intentionally because they know that, in doing so, they are painting their opponents as bad (unpatriotic) Americans who are dishonoring this nations “political deities” – their “Founding Fathers.”

Keep in mind that the fifty-five men, “The Framers” who gathered in Philadelphia to draft the Constitution, were as mixed a group of human beings that could have ever been assembled. Among them were anarchists, monarchists, nationalists, anti-nation slave owners, abolitionists, Christians, atheists, and everything in between, (and many if not most were followers of the Enlightenment Movement and were also Masonic and Illuminati affiliated, how could such a body ever become unified?).

The Constitution that emerged out of this squabbling group was a deeply-flawed document. The government it created was clunky. The division of power between the states and the federal government was inconsistent. And, in order to produce a working constitution, it required compromise, the convention had to concede almost every contested point to the Southern slave states, embedding the protection of slavery into the Constitution and guaranteeing that this cancer could only be removed from the body politic by a lengthy and bloody civil war.” (Parenthesis are mine).

Yet, many groups of Christians believe that Christianity’s God’s divine hand guided the Framers of the Constitution, making it a document to be highly honored (and even worshipped by many) and being on par with the Bible. However, anything that is the product of “mixture” and “compromise” – as God tells us in His Word, is defiled and is flawed – such as this nation’s Constitution, produced by this “mixed bunch” of fallen carnal human minds.

In one sense I agree that a “divine hand” guided these framers. I say this because, God has allowed Satan to become the god of this world (1 Cor 4:4), and he surely “divinely” guides the minds of fallen people; and is allowed by God to do so, but only to further God’s eternal prophesied purposes. God’s divine hand also, has been involved in every nation that has ever existed upon the earth. His ultimate prophesied plan is that of the destruction of this world through Satan, because it will be the means to bring forth a NEW Heavens, and a NEW earth … free from the dominion of Satan, his followers and all sin! Thus, Satan’s wrath and destruction against humanity, is being used by God to draw souls unto Himself, and move the earth towards its intended glorious restored end.

(Isaiah 26:9-10) For only when you come to judge the earth will people learn what is right… Your kindness to the wicked does not make them do good. Although others do right (when judgment comes), the wicked (unrepentant) keep doing wrong and take no notice of the Lord’s majesty. NLT

Religion and politics have always been controversial topics of conversation among every generation. However, there seems to be a revival and blending of philosophies among religion and politics in this end time generation. As a result, many professing Christians are waning in their faith and in their fear of God, because they are deceived into following the sciences of these philosophies, which cause its followers to think that bringing social economic and social reforms through man made philosophies will cure the ills of the world, which  in truth are caused by rebellion against God and His ways (i.e. sin) and not by a lack of societal reforms. Man cannot politically reform what sin has deformed.

America’s Origins of Humanistic Principles

Such were the beliefs of the original founders of this nation.  Those inspired to become “Enlightenment thinkers,” who were followers of John Locke, the founder of the Libertarians and the Enlightenment Movement, wanted to improve human conditions on earth rather than concern themselves with religion and the afterlife. These thinkers abandoned conventional Biblical truth and replaced it with valued humanistic reason, science, religious tolerance, and what they called “natural rights”— such the right to  a “life of liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” –a phrase that came out the writings of John Locke, which most scholars trace this phrase, as found in the American Declaration of Independence, to Locke’s philosophical  theory of rights.

This distinctive social and political philosophy of the Enlightenment Movement, enshrined the concept of “liberty.” This system of thought, which “men developed,” supported and defended what became known as liberalism, which has as its primary tenet, tolerance, meaning the “right” to endure continued subjection to something (good or bad).

 A “RIGHT” is defined as a legal entitlement (legal permission) conferred upon one to have or obtain something. The “founding  fathers” believed every person had been granted the “natural right” by their creator (whoever they individually thought that to be — among this mixed bunch of founders) – this creator  granted the “right’ to a life ofliberty,” (i.e. tolerance) meaning having freedom to individually choose and tolerate how one chooses to live their life in any way that produces happiness— without any interference from government or religion. However, God’s word describes this belief as “lasciviousness.”

(Galatians 2:4-5) “…some so-called Christians—false ones, really—who were secretly brought in. They sneaked in to spy on us and take away the freedom (i.e. true unity) we have in Christ Jesus. They wanted to enslave us and force us to follow their regulations (i.e. principles)…  But we refused to give in to them for a single moment. We wanted to preserve the truth of the gospel message for you.

(Jude 1:4) For there are certain men who crept in secretly, even those who were long ago written about for this condemnation: ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying our only Master, God, and Lord, Jesus Christ.

The original Greek word in the text translated as lasciviousness is Strong’s NT:766 aselgeia (as-elg’-i-a); it is defined as: disregarding accepted rules or conventions, shamelessness, insolent (rude, lack of respect) CWSD: absence of restraint, insatiable desire for pleasing ones self. This totally describes the spirit that is ruling the rioters from Antifa and BLM that are demanding the abolishing of law enforcement. 

 This nation’s founders opened the door for this spirit to control our nation by ascribing to this libertarian principle, that championed this nations “individual rights” (i.e. it’s all about me—what I choose to think and desire).

Giving place to the “libertine spirit” has opened the door to many horrible sins like abortion, homosexuality, child sex trafficking and on and on. Believing we have the right to the “freedom to do as one pleases” and abandoning God’s moral standard of self-control and restraint, has doomed this nation to God’s judgment that came by making “liberty” and the “pursuit of happiness” the founding up principles for this nation. This has led to creating the absence of repentance, because it would require the renunciation of what the founding fathers framed in their constitution, which does not  allow for embracing the only ONE TRUE GOD and His standard for truth, true life, freedom and happiness.

Instead of embracing God’s Ten Commandments as the guiding principles for this nation, the framers of the Constitution made up their own Ten Amendments as guiding principles, called the Bill of Rights. The very first Amendment guarantees the right to protest against anything (including a “religion” that uses the Bible as its moral code) that is now seen as a hindrance to the individual’s right to “liberty” (freedom from restraint) that would greatly hinder their “pursuit of happiness.” The first Amendment states this very clearly…

The First Amendment text reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

As touched on previously, the First Amendment  provides several “protections for individual rights”: These protections  include the right to (1) express individual ideas and opinions through  speech  and through the press,  (2) to assemble or gather with a group to protest (i.e. whatever is hindering the individuals life of freedom in their “pursuit of  happiness”) or for other reasons, such as to ask (or demand) the government to fix problems (that again are hindering their life of liberty and pursuit of happiness). (3) It also protects the right to have religious beliefs and practices of all kinds (this means mixture is being promoted, which causes confusion and chaos within a society and prevents unity within the nation), and It prevents the government from creating or favoring any religion (especially that of true Christianity, in order to ensure the anti-Christian freedom for tolerating all religious practices that include Satanism and witchcraft and its beliefs to be practiced and propagated). These subtle deceptive undertones of Satan’s agenda for the practice of lasciviousness are clearly present in this very first Amendment in this nation’s Bill of Rights!

What a deceitful, subtle thing LASCIVIOUSNESS is!! It makes those practicing this think they are free, when they are really in bondage. It is a device of Satan, whereby he deceives people into thinking they are really free, when in fact – they are locked up by their own carnal self-indulgence and vices for pleasure (i.e. happiness), that have ultimately doomed this nation to God’s punishment because it has outlawed and refuses to promote and favor the only ONE TRUE  religion that requires repentance and humility. The deception of the “pursuit of happiness gospel” is why there has been an absence of repentance, and holiness in God’s people and within the churches that have been influenced by and embraced this American false gospel!

I find it alarming and very sad to see so many deceived, undiscerning and compromising Christians putting their time, energy and valuable resources into an antichrist political and government system, because they have deceived into believing they are called to bring “restoration” and “reform” to a nation dedicated to and controlled by an antichrist Libertine spirit.

The article written by the professing Christian, Jim Hoft, who is embracing and preaching a Politically Correct Gospel –that is telling Christians that unless we take charge of this nations political system by getting involved by voting, or getting involved in the political system …this nation is going to fall.

However, the only chance this nation has for survival is to listen to (the very few) God appointed voices, warning of coming judgments and calling for true repentance among the people.  Again, Hoft says … “If America falls, our freedom and ability to preach the gospel to the nations falls with her.  If America falls, our freedom and ability to provide aid to those in need falls with her.  If America falls, our freedom and ability to provide protection to those who need it falls with her.”

This belief is truly the epitome of idolatry! As Christians, we don’t get our freedom and ability from America to preach the Gospel, any more than we get our freedom and ability to be provided with or to provide the aid and protection for others… Americans were granted these things because of God’s mercy and grace upon His people, who did revere and honor Him above all else. America is NOT and never was the Christian’s source for these things! The true Christian has always deemed God as their source to provide both the freedom and the ability to do ALL OF THESE THINGS—AMERICA (i.e. the people and the government) ARE NOT OUR SOURCE FOR PROVISION NOR ARE THEY THE SAVIOR OF NATIONS! Jesus Christ and He alone holds that position of power!

In conclusion, as seen by what has been written here, America is a nation that was formed by a diverse group of men, who came up with their own founding principles for this nation based on their false beliefs and NOT BIBLICAL principles, as many falsely believe. The framers chose “right sounding words” but falsely defined them, which is how deception is used by Satan… “right word—wrong meaning.” Only those who have a sincere desire to know the truth will have the ability to discern the truth as it is revealed by the Holy Spirit of God, regarding this nation. True unbiased research into our history reveals the truth concerning this nation’s foundation. It is as stated, a foundation of mixture— some truth mixed with lot of hidden Satanically inspired philosophies and agendas, coming from his masquerading “servants of righteousness.”

Because of these things, the true prophets of God have been and are continuing to expose Satan’s endtime strategies and bring warnings of God’s impending judgments upon this nation. These judgments are for the purpose of awakening those of His people who have been blinded by the god of this world, to the reality of their need to repent of and be cleansed of their idolatrous beliefs and practices, and turn to God with their whole heart, so they can fulfill their King’s Great Commission, that we His people, have been given by our Lord and Savior –Jesus Christ!

Millions Will Be Sent to Re-Education Camps! What Are the Odds for Survival?

The parallels between the Bolsheviks and the modern day extreme leftist groups of George Soros’s (America) completely align with the Lenin revolutionaries. The Bolsheviks had a popular phrase that we will soon incessantly hear if and when the Democrats (i.e. modern-day version of the Bolsheviks) seize power over the American people. The downtrodden of the American society will now form the backbone of the modern- day version of the Bolshevik terrorists.

During the Bolshevik Revolution, Russia was financially broke and the effects of World War I were devastating. Today, Covid-19 replaces the impact of World War I on the American people. Covid-19 may constitute a real threat against the elderly with underlying health conditions, however, for the vast majority of Americans the threat is little more than any other virus. Yet, the American people have let themselves become destitute with the widespread and general lockdowns imposed by mostly Democratic Party mayors and governors. This is all part of the plan to collapse the economy, piss off the working class and incite a civil war. 

This week America will begin to see record evictions and foreclosures. Nearly one-third of the country is impacted. Most of the affected will be young adults. Over half of the country that is eligible to work, is unemployed. Eighty five percent of private restaurants will be out of business this fall. Student loans will be due in September. Because most of the impacted are young adults, they will be disillusioned at their first entry into the American economy. Who can blame them for embracing socialism, because their first experience with capitalism has been a disaster! They will increasingly seek to align with other disenfranchised young people and there are ready-made groups ready to embrace, support and redirect their anger toward American society. America, like 1917 Russia, is facing a revolution from the grass roots, at least on the surface. We know that Wall Street financed much of the Russian Revolution as did the Rothschilds. We know, today, that the globalists are financing leftist radical groups such as Antifa (e.g. George Soros and the Rothschilds).

The ensuing poverty of the Russian people led the Bolsheviks to come up with a unifying theme of “Peace, Bread and Land”. The use of Covid-19 to bring about extreme poverty and eventual economic collapse through the use of “shelter in place and lockdown strategies” have been devised to place America in the economic and emotional state of 1917 Russia.

American stupidity and abject ignorance have become its biggest enemy. As Federal District Court Judge Dever said on Saturday, there is no pandemic exception to the Constitution, but we, the American people have allowed it to happen. We have permitted Governors, like Gavin Newsom, to keep his winery open while shutting all the others down. We have allowed Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to keep Casinos open while shutting down tubing on the river and closing the gyms, while Ducey sits on the Board of T-Gen (Covid-19 testing magnate vaccine participant). Talk about conflicts of interest to go with the unconstitutionality of the pandemic exceptions. In short, America has accepted the unconstitutional state of allowing a pandemic exception to the Constitution. It will prove to be the undoing of the Republic.

When the Planned Demise of America Is Complete

In the next 8 weeks, the American economy will continue to disintegrate. Long lines and high prices, as well as food shortages will begin to appear. And because of the contrived and planned economic collapse, there will be NO shortage of younger generation of “Bolshevik type” revolutionaries that will plunge this country into a state of civil war. Subsequently, the ranks of Antifa and BLM will grow to unbelievable numbers.

What was once a civil rights movement has quickly morphed into an anti-government and anti-middle-class movement. Anyone who has a job and that has property will become their enemy. As what happened in 1917, American law enforcement authorities will increasingly refuse to fire on the mobs. With the Democrats in control from the top, they will be passing legislation which basically outlaws property ownership and a savings account, the purge will begin.

Assassination and mass casualty events will become common as America de-evolves into a 1992 “Bosnian Civil War society” where violence is omnipresent and brutal. Mass shooting events will become common. Crime will be motivated by hunger. The leftist groups will transform into “Brown Shirt” enforcement agents with little to no oversight. Nobody will be safe. I would suggest you watch the trilogy, “The Purge,” to get a good idea of what is coming in the short-term. And then look at Portland and Seattle and tell me that that you do not see these forces at work. 

The Bolshevik purge began with mass executions followed by the Gulags. I see nothing in the behavior of today’s leftist mentality to suggest that anything will be different than it was during the Bolshevik Revolution.

If you and your family manage to survive the initial executions that will follow the 2021 Inauguration, you will need to be concerned about being sent to a “re-education camp.” Remember, that NSA has a record of every phone call, every email, every text and every website you have ever visited. Whether you know it or not, everyone of you has a threat matrix score. This score will decide who goes to the FEMA camps. There is one question that all of you should answer, “Can you survive the FEMA camp experience”. Please consider the following before you answer this question.

Your Pending FEMA Camp Experience

Are you ready for the coming tyrannical crackdown and the complete evisceration of our constitutional liberties? Have you taken the proper precautions that will ensure the safety of you and your family? It is not likely that very many Americans have taken any meaningful steps to maximize the chances for survival in what will prove to be humanity’s darkest days. Do you have what it takes to survive in a FEMA camp? When the FEMA bus rolls into your neighborhood, are you prepared to deal with what lies ahead? Let’s assume for a moment that martial law is declared and you were not able to find a safe sanctuary. Subsequently, you are arrested by the powers that be. Your family will be separated by the authorities as a prelude to sending you to a FEMA camp, and that means that men will go to one facility and women will go to another. Children will have their own facility awaiting them.  In all likelihood, this will mark the last time you will ever see your family. How do I know this? Read the Rex 84 documents. Also read, FM 39.4 Army Field Manual on FEMA Camps.

Imagine how a man who is deprived of everyone he has ever cared about, and at the same time this man has lost his house and all of his possessions, how will he survive? The best data available on forced internment of civilian populations comes from the Nazis and this is what we have learned from history.

History Teaches There Are Two Primary Dangers Facing FEMA Camp Detainees

There are two primary dangers facing detainees. The first is bad luck. The second danger is the loss of hope. Victor Frankl, the renowned psychiatrist, who spent four years in Auschwitz, thought that the loss of hope was the number one factor associated with prisoner mortality in a concentration camp detention situation. How will you find meaning in your life when you’re separated from everything you’ve ever known and loved? In the previous days as a history instructor, I used to have survivors of the Holocaust come and speak to my students. Subsequently, I asked all of these former death camp prisoners, what was the number one factor in their survival? Almost to a person, they stated the number one factor in their survival was luck. I was told that the Nazis would herd people to the showers which they knew was a death trap, and they were the next in line, but were turned away, because the quota had been met.  It just wasn’t their day to die.

If you are sent to a FEMA camp, there are things you can do to exercise control over the things of which you have influence. The Jews were a very resilient people and were able to manufacture their own subculture. There were those, however, that did resist as they ran from the relocation trains, and/or attacked their captors. In almost every instance, resisting the authorities at the time of arrest, was almost 100% fatal. For those who arrived at the death camps, a vibrant subculture appeared as the people played cards and actors, musicians, comics, singers, and dancers all entertained small groups who came together for a few hours to forget their daily terror and despair. Singers and poets also perform their craft as well. And of course, people continue to pray even though it was against the rules. People formed bonds with each other, developed a level of affection and respect. In short, they replaced the loss of primary family associations with people facing imminent death every day. The lesson is clear, if you’re ever forced into a FEMA camp, pray for good luck (i.e. God’s favor) and foster relationships among your fellow detainees and find pleasure in the small things over which you will have some measure of control.

Organized Resistance Within the Camps

What about organizing a resistance in the FEMA camps, would that work? The history lesson which can be derived, from this question, is not promising. In Treblinka, seven hundred Jews were successful in blowing up the camp on August 2, 1943. All but 150 of the inmates perished in retaliation for their efforts. Only 12 Treblinka inmates survived the war. In Sobibor, Jewish and Russian inmates mounted an escape on October 14, 1943.  One in ten successfully escaped, about 60 out of 600. The prisoners involved in the escape survived to join the Soviet underground.  In Auschwitz, on October 7, 1944, one of the four crematoria was blown up by Jewish workers, whose job it was to clear away the bodies of gas chamber victims. The workers were all caught and killed.

The lesson seems clear, if you allow yourself to be transported to a FEMA camp, you’re probably not coming out alive. Therefore, since resistance within the camp is largely futile, you have three options. One, do not get caught. Two, you can choose to acquiesce and hope your compliance and your search for meaning, within the experience, is successful. Three, you can try to escape. To survive by going along to get along, requires a fair amount of luck to survive. From my perspective, I believe history teaches that mounting an organized escape effort may be the best chance for survival that an inmate has for coming out of the death camp experience, alive.

Will You and Your Community Resist the Tyranny?

Despite the stereotype which portrays all Jews as willing and meekly going to their slaughter, is not totally accurate. There are plenty of examples where the Jews met force with force and refused to be subjugated. For example, on September 3, 1942, seven hundred Jewish families escaped from the Tuchin Ghetto, located in Ukraine. However, the Nazis hunted them down, and only 15 survived. By 1943, the ghetto residents, in the famous Warsaw Ghetto, had organized an army of about 1,000 men, mostly unarmed and without military equipment. In January 1943, German soldiers entered the ghetto to round up more Jews for shipment to the death camps. They were met by a volley of bombs, Molotov cocktails, and a few bullets from the sparse number of firearms which had been smuggled into the ghettos. Twenty German soldiers were killed. The action encouraged a few members of the Polish resistance to support the uprising, and a few machine guns, some hand grenades, and about a hundred rifles and revolvers were smuggled in. The Nazis returned with almost 3,000 crack German troops and eventually overcame the resistance and about 300 Germans were killed. Jewish losses were estimated at 15,000. Some Jews survived and some actually did escape, but not many.

Conclusion

In the above paragraphs, you can see why I get so upset when my government is and has been actively practicing to mass arrest citizens, while simultaneously housing them in FEMA camps. I know my history. According to the lessons of history, there can be no question that being sent to a concentration camp (i.e. FEMA camp) is an almost certain death sentence. 

We have seen that resistance at the point of arrest is futile. Armed and organized resistance which includes community involvement, produces long odds for survival, but some do survive. Resisting captors inside of the concentration camp, by any means necessary, is nearly fatal in every case. Acquiescing to authority, while one carves out a life under very dire circumstances, provides the best chance for survival. However, under these conditions, one’s survival is highly dependent on being “lucky” (or if you are a Bible believing Christian, “in God’s Hands” for He alone sets our appointment with death). To the doubters, I would ask you this: If the Deep State portion of your government wasn’t planning to incarcerate millions, then why were the camps built? Why is there is legislation covering the camps? Why did UWEX 16, under Obama, practice rehearsing these snatch and grab scenarios? The best chance for survival if you are ever transported to a FEMA camp, is to avoid being caught in the first place. This is where being informed and prepared is ESSENTIAL!

PART 2-Exposing the Synagogue of Satan

This post is an excerpt and adaptation from the KABBALAH AND FREE MASONS Watchman Report

For those who have little or no knowledge of the subjects covered in this report, I pray the Holy Spirit will confirm to your spirit the truths being brought forth.  Cults associated with the “Synagogue of Satan” as pertaining to “Judaism” have invaded Christianity in very subtle ways, and have managed to change and challenge the very foundation of Christianity in ways that most Christians are not even aware of. 

There are many hidden and dishonest things of darkness that are associated with the “Synagogue of Satan” including the Free Masons and the Kabbalah, and these must be exposed and RENOUNCED, so the truth can set people free! These things are used by Satan’s Illuminati powers, which are in control of this present darkness.

… as we have received mercy, we faint not… But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty (darkness), not walking in craftiness, or handling the word of God deceitfully… (2 Corinthians 4:1-2)

This post will delve into aspects of the mystery of lawlessness, which is clearly revealed through the religion, signs or symbolism of Judaism’s KABBALAH—which is alive and well TODAY and all around us. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work… (2 Thessalonians 2:7).

God’s people have been deceived, and must come out NOW from any association with this Babylonian Illuminati infected, Synagogue of Satan that has infiltrated apostate Christianity … “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”  (Rev 18:4). Your favorite teacher on TV or on YouTube may be, and IS highly likely to be, associated with this defiling apostate system. Become informed and stay alert and do NOT be complacent.

If you do not want to be deceived, we need to know about Kabbalah, and cannot avoid it. And, yes … it is not pleasant to talk about and it would be nice if we did not have to even think about it. But, in order to not be deceived, which was one of the last commands our Messiah gave us two days before the crucifixion, “Let no one deceive you …” (Matt 24:4) we must understand Kabbalah, for it is Satan’s most widely used deceptions among God’s people.

I have learned how essential it is to have knowledge of some basic things about Kabbalah as my Heavenly Father has led me to research it. Now, my eyes are open wider, and I must now share with you some of what I have learned. It is a fact that the whole world is centered around this occult religion …

Kabbalah came from Babylon, and it is the religion of the sons of the serpent, and the vehicle for delivering Satanism today. Satan’s control of the dark side is done mainly through Kabbalah, and it is even more active now as we approach the end of the age. Satan sows many seeds. This shrewd serpent of old has so many “shops” and “flavors” for all man’s needs and preferences, or they come in variety of “packages,” sort to speak, which makes it difficult to identify what Kabbalah really is.

It is just like using sugar, which comes in many different colors, forms, shapes, flavors, tastes, textures, spices, etc. etc., and is used in candies, snacks, ice cream, soft drinks, cakes, and donuts, with all their beautiful colors and enticing decorations, and in attractive looking packages. These things are sold with much song and dance, by beautiful faces of popular celebrities. But, at the core of it … it is sugar. It does not matter how healthy and appealing the products look … it is still only sugar. Well … and too much sugar is bad enough, yes. But, with the sugar, come other poisons—all kinds of poisons that are blissfully eaten, even to the point of creating an addiction. We don’t want to hear about the fact that those “sweet things” being ingested are harmful to our body—having inevitable bad consequences, because they don’t look evil and they taste so good!  Thus, “It can’t be bad.” … right?  

Satanism is like the sugar, and Kabbalah is a flavor, a specially concocted addictive flavor. My focus is on Judaism, because it is the main distributor and vehicle of Kabbalah, and Freemasonry is another. Also, Messianic Judaism is a relatively new designed and attractive package just for Christians.

In order not become deceived and defiled, we must learn to recognize these things and those who practice them. We do not need to be experts on how Kabbalah is practiced, but it is imperative that we recognize how it manifests in our environments, and who the kabbalists are among us. There are key points and essential knowledge on Kabbalah that need to be understood, along with some of the characteristics of Kabbalah in order to have a foundational understanding of this very confusing satanic practice.  Having a basic knowledge of these things makes it easier to share this information and help warn others.

NOTEIn this article, the term, “the Jew,” is often used.  Although care has been taken to make it clear within the context, it is to be understood that not all “Jewish people” practice Kabbalah or that they are all Satanists. When the terms “the Jews” and “Kabbalah” are mentioned in the same context, this means that “the Jews” being mentioned are “those who call themselves Jews who are practicing Kabbalah” and who are willing participants in Satanism and secret societies of the New World Order..(Revelation 2:9) …I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

The Origin of Kabbalah

So, we have learned that Solomon worshiped the pagan gods of the surrounding nations, and they were also the origin of the mysticism and the esoteric knowledge of Freemasonry. And those famous occultists are testifying to the fact that Freemasonry is based on Kabbalah. These facts, then, bring us to the following conclusion:

Kabbalah, paganism, and Freemasonry are based upon the same mysticism, and worshipping the same gods, which are Lucifer and the fallen angels. They are the religions of Ammonites, Amalekites, and other Canaanites, and the Egyptians, all known as the serpent people. And, the origins of those pagan religions goes back to Babylon. Here is what the Scriptures reveal:

1 Kings 11:1-5

(1) But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites– (2) from the nations of whom the LORD had said to the children of Israel, “You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after their gods.” Solomon clung to these in love. (3) And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart. (4) For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David. (5) For Solomon went after Ashtoreth* the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom** the abomination of the Ammonites.

This familiar looking lady, Columbia (dove), is the same goddess as Ashtaroth, Semiramis, Isis, and so on … The shining torch is the blazing star Sirius

The pair of gods mentioned in verse 5 is the “First Couple” of the Pagan Deities” Ashtoreth and Milcom, of Kabbalah and Freemasonry.

It becomes clear when you do further research into the deities that Solomon ended up worshiping, which caused the kingdom to split, that they were the gods of Babylon, also called Sumer or Sumeria, where Nimrod built the Tower of Babel and where our current world civilization began. It must be realized that ALL false religions are worshiping Lucifer and fallen angels, especially when people worship themselves, by believing that they can become gods by obtaining certain esoteric knowledge and methods, through works (as taught in Kabbalah), especially by sacrificing their own children. Then we wonder by abortion has become so acceptable? The Illuminati elites truly believe they are gods. Thus, Kabbalists believe there is secret knowledge to be passed down from these fallen beings that is able to make man immortal. This is nothing more than deceptive ideology that is deeply connected to the Kabbalistic idea of achieving human immortality by manipulating genetic material spiritually and alchemically, which such practices began in ancient Mesopotamia. It is from this foundation that ALL occultism exists.

  Kabbalah and Judaism

The modern day Kabbalah, in the form that the kabbalists practice today, seems to have started taking its form after the first century AD and after the Khazarians (or Khazars) converted to Mystic Judaism, in 740 AD and spread out into the world after the disintegration of the Khazarian Empire in and around 1016 AD. This point was covered in PART 1 of THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN

One of the famous Khazarian descendants in the mid 1600’s was Sabbatai Tzvi. Tzvi, also spelled “Zevi.”  He had a significant group of followers in his teaching of Kabbalah in what is now present-day Turkey and claimed to be the messiah of the Jews as well, until he was forced to convert to Islam and died shortly thereafter. More is discussed about Tzvi (Zevi) and a few key people among the Sabbateans in the “The Khazarian Jews” section of the KABBALAH WATCHMAN REPORT.  These figures seem to have been the ones who greatly helped spread the current Kabbalah throughout Europe and the Middle East. Eventually the Sabbatean peoples spread throughout Europe, especially within Eastern Europe and also within Russia.

The Chabad-Lubavitch Sect (Founded in 1775, in Russia), originating from the Khazars also kept the Kabbalistic and mystic heritage of Khazarian Jews, and probably the Sabbatean heritage also. A more familiar sounding name, Hasidic Orthodox Judaism, is considered to be the same group as Chabad sect, and they are also called Ultra-Orthodox Jews as a group. Therefore, what the Ultra-Orthodox Jews practice is mystical Judaism, known as Kabbalah. There are some variations in the ways different sects of Kabbalah do things, such as making amulets and talismans, and doing more magical things, or others sects are more into gematria (numerology), etc. However, Orthodox Jews also practice Kabbalah to somewhat of a lesser degree based on Judaism in a more cultural and traditional form.

And, do not forget this: The Messianic Jews are Kabbalah practicing Jews, and they do it very seriously as their symbolism and teachings clearly indicate.

Hasidic Jews are not shy about their Kabbalah roots. The Chabadniks (or Lubavitchers) declare that “Kabbalah is the soul of Judaism” on their official Web site. This sect is famous for having produced numerous false messiahs since its establishment almost 240 years ago, called Chabad Messianism, last one being Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson who died at the age of 92 in 1994, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, New York, where the highest population of the Chabadniks live next to Israel. The followers are still waiting for him to be resurrected.

And, interestingly, this is the same group of Jews who believe in building the Third Temple on the Temple Mount to usher in their messiah, and actually have been seriously preparing for it for hundreds of years, and in recent times with the unconditional support from the Messianic Jewish sect, Freemasonry, and the Illuminati cabal. Also, Zionist Christians, such as John Hagee and the late Jerry Falwell, also unconditionally support the building of this 3rd temple, as well as many other dispensationalist prophecy teachers, who teach that a 3rd temple must be built before the Second Coming of the Messiah. The Third Temple rebuilding is a Kabbalistic/Masonic belief, which is not biblical. This is Not to say that one will not be built to receive their false messiah.

Just as the kabbalists have been vigorously marketing Kabbalah in many forms and in different packages, such as the New Age, witchcraft, theosophy, and other secret societies, even using celebrity spokespersons, such as Madonna, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Demi Moore, and many others. They are marketing Kabbalah to Christians in a package known as Messianic Judaism, calling themselves the House of Judah, and demanding Christians unconditionally bless the current State of Kabbalistic Israel. They use Jesus our Messiah on the package to sell Kabbalah, in reality it is nothing short of blasphemy.

The Hebraic Roots Movement, is luring Christians who are tired of the current apostate Church and rampant heresies—into the snare of Kabbalah by teaching them that the Jews are the House of Judah, which they are not, and that they have to be reunited with the House of Israel, now called Christians. The reunification of the two houses (or two families of God—all born again Hebrews and gentiles) will happen upon the Second Coming of our Messiah, according to the Bible. The modern day “Jews” living in Israel are not the “House of Judah.” These heresies have been taught for hundreds years in the Church and were brought in by none other than the same Kabbalists and Freemasons.

The term, “Hebrew Roots,” seems to have come from a typical symbol of Kabbalah, the “Tree of Life.” They worship trees, and this symbolism is everywhere. The phrase “As above; So below,” is the motto of the Kabbalistic Satanism that reflects the union of “air” (male) and “earth” (female), as reflected by a tree that “rises in the air,” representing ‘male,’  and the ‘roots’ are in the “earth below,” represent the ‘female’. When you see these typical designs of the Tree of Life, reflects the “Hebrew Roots.”

In this logo, the Hebrew Roots and the Tree of Life is clearly associated with each other.

The Zionists’ long term planning were so effective that, even before the surge of Messianic Jews, whole Churches had already been deceived into believing that the Jews were the real descendants of the House of Judah and that they were the biblical heirs of the land of Israel. When traced back, one will find that this had been planned for at least 300 years, before 1948 when Israel became a sovereign state. The result was amazing. Now the whole world believes it. … Their plot worked like a “Kabbalah charm.”

When you do the research, it becomes quite evident that there is an undeniable connection between Kabbalah-Freemasonry-Judaism-Zionoism-Messianic and Hebrew Roots Movements.  Kabbalah is spreading like wildfire as is seen by the symbolism and signs that can be found everywhere. This is the Mystery Religion of Mystery Babylon.

In order for Christians to not be drawn into the subtle deceptions of Satan, it is important to become familiar with the symbolism and signs of the Kabbalah-Freemasonry-Judaism-Zionoism-Messianic and Hebrew Roots Movements, the KABBALAH WATCHMAN REPORT includes a very comprehensive section on these movements and their symbols, as well as the many well-known and respected Christian leaders and celebrities associated with them.

PART 1-Exposing the Synagogue of Satan

In Part 1 of this series on the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN, I will focus much on the importance of having a basic understanding of the workings of just how closely intertwined Judaism, Kabbalah and Illuminati cults, such as Free Masons have been used by Satan to confuse and thus deceive many professing Christians.  These cults have invaded Christianity in very subtle ways, and have managed to change and challenge the very foundation of Christianity in ways that most Christians are not even aware of. 

Those who expose these kinds of major occult secrets are truly on the front lines of the battle against evil, and many times it has cost them their lives, jobs and families, because secret organizations do not like exposure, therefore, we need to keep these watchmen and their ministries covered in our prayers.

I pray what is put forth in this post, will begin to open the eyes of God’s people who may have become entangled with those operating in what is being exposed in this report.  If at any time the Holy Spirit does reveal to you the reader, any involvement with these things, there must be sincere repentance and confession of these as sin—so God can set you free from this web of deception. Many Christians are caught in this web of deception and have not even realized what they have fallen into. I was once there myself, and that is why I want to clearly sound the alarm! God is great in mercy and is willing to forgive and cleanse any who will truly turn to Him in honesty and true repentance.

There are many hidden and dishonest things of darkness that are associated with the Judaism, Free Masons and the Kabbalah, and these must be exposed and RENOUNCED, so the truth can set people free! These things are used by Satan’s Illuminati powers, which are in control of this present darkness. … as we have received mercy, we faint not… But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty (darkness), not walking in craftiness, or handling the word of God deceitfully… (2 Corinthians 4:1-2)

The mystery of lawlessness, which is clearly revealed through the religion, signs or symbolism of KABBALAH—are alive and well TODAY and all around us. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work…  (2 Thessalonians 2:7)

Kabbalah TREE OF LIFE Symbol

This is the same mysticism that today’s false teachers and false prophets are involved with and base their false teachings upon. We must be alert and diligent in recognizing and identifying Satan’s SIGNS in everything. Even him (antichrist), whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and SIGNS and lying wonders… And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved (i.e. from deception) .(2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

Most of the corporate logos, TV commercials, ministry logos, art designs, and even government related logos feature some kind of Kabbalah symbolism, revealing to us of their affiliation with and their allegiance to the Illuminati who worship Lucifer.

I know, it is difficult to wrap our mind around all of this, and I understand that it might take some people a little bit of time for a paradigm shift to occur. Often, when this truth is revealed to the uniformed, they can become angry and hostile towards the messengers of truth. This is because it exposes the falseness of their idols, which they have made of their false ministers or denominations and movements; it also threatens their false belief systems that they have come to depend on. God’s watchmen however, are messengers of the truth and the bearers of reality, which is truly an expression of love for our Father and His people. It is sad to say … but in reality the whole world lies in deception and is influenced and controlled by this satanic cabal. “…and the whole world lies in wickedness… And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us understanding … Little children, guard yourselves from idols. (1 John 5:19-21)

Attacking the messengers, or even killing them, will not change anything, rather we have to change our attitude, swallow our pride and receive the truth humbly from our Father and repent. What is revealed in this report may shock and anger many readers—when they find out that not only are the Messianic and Hebrew Roots Movements driven by kabbalists, but also the universal Church, which is comprised of hundreds of denominations and movements that have existed throughout the history of Christianity. All of these have been largely run by Kabbalistic Freemasonry organizations. As you will see, their church and ministry symbolism and signs speaks loud and clear, revealing to us the truth of their involvement.

My brothers and sisters, please be aware that WE HAVE BEEN DECEIVED BY THESE TARES for hundreds of years.  It is not a new threat, but we have been deceived from the very beginning when God first planted His church upon this earth… “The kingdom from heaven (His universal church) is like a man who sowed good seed in his field… but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way…So the servants of the owner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Where did these tares come from?’ …He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’ …But he said, ‘No …Let both grow together until the harvest… (Matthew 13:24-30)

God’s people have been deceived, and must come out NOW from this Babylonian Illuminati infected, apostate Christianity … “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Rev 18:4). Your favorite teacher on TV or on YouTube may be, and IS highly likely to be, a false teacher. Proof of this is given in the WATCHMAN REPORT offered above in this post. We must become informed and stay alert and not be complacent. Most of all we must … Repent and come out of her now... because the Last Days are HERE.

The Khazarian Jews

It is important to know the REAL history of the “JEWS.” A good place to start is understanding something of the world of Kabbalah. It is enormous, and is undefinable in a just one paragraph, because it branches out into dozens of minor religions and cults. Kabbalah is the ancient Jewish tradition of a mystical interpretation of the Bible, first transmitted orally and using esoteric methods (including ciphers… a secret or disguised way of writing; a code). It reached the height of its influence in the later Middle Ages and remains significant in Hasidism, an influential mystical Jewish movement still a force in Jewish life, particularly in Israel and New York. Kabbalah Judaism reminds me of an octopus, a gigantic one … one with more than eight tentacles, even hundreds of them. And its tentacles are everywhere in the world we live in.

The group of people that have been the main carrier of Kabbalah are the Khazarian Jews, through the practice of Judaism. This group of “Jews” are the Kazhars Zionist Ashkenazi. “Ashkenazim” refers to the Jews who are from Europe, mainly from Germany, in general. It must be noted that being Ashkenazi Jew does not mean they are all Khazarian Jews. Judahites, true descendants of the House of Judah, from Iran and Iraq regions are assumed to have migrated to the same area. And the same can be said for the Sephardic Jews.

Please clearly note this point, that not all Jewish people are practicing the core form of mystic Kabbalah. Their ethnic identity as Jewish people is not based on Kabbalah, but largely on the “cultural Judaism.” But, having said that, it is a reality that Judaism itself is still based on Kabbalah, so the influence is unavoidable.

Although the majority of “Jewish” people are not consciously aware of the Kabbalah influence, it is in every aspect of the lives of those who attend synagogue, for they are “blessed” by the rabbi’s Kabbalistic Aaronic blessing that uses a Kabbalistic mystical hand sign.  If they are circumcised, it is done in the Talmudic way, which is Kabbalistic, and of course ALL of the holidays and feasts are carried out as taught in the Talmud.  The Talmud is the body of man made Jewish civil and ceremonial law, instructions and legends comprising the Mishnah and the Gemara. There are two versions of the Talmud: the Babylonian Talmud (which dates from the 5th century AD but includes earlier material) and the earlier Palestinian or Jerusalem Talmud. After all, Judaism, the Hebrew language, and Yiddish, are the tools and methods for the leaders of the Jewish community to keep the Jewish people together and easily controllable, and to also keep out outsiders. Yiddish is a language used by Jews in central and eastern Europe before the Holocaust. It was originally a German dialect with words from Hebrew and several modern languages and is today spoken mainly in the US, Israel, and Russia.

The Scriptures tells us that God said He was going to scatter the Judeans (Jews) into the world just like He scattered the House of Israel (the true descendants of Abraham). This occured in at least 2 stages.

(Jeremiah 31:27) Behold, the days come, saith Jehovah, that I will sow (scatter) the house of Israel (true Hebrew descendants from all tribes) and the house of Judah (residents of Judea called “Jews” …not meaning descendants from the tribe if Judah)…

STAGE 1) This took place after the destruction of Jerusalem and the Second Temple at the end of the first century, 70 AD.

STAGE 2) Happened after the Revolt of Bar Kokhba, in the beginning of the second, ca. 136 AD.

There were many Judeans (residents of Judea who were called “Jews”) who had stayed in Babylon after the exile and who continued to practice their Babylonian Satanism (Talmud and Kabbalah Judaism). There was no more House of Judah (descendants of Abraham from the tribe of Judah) after that. The scepter departed from Judah as prophesied in (Gen 49:10). This leads to an interesting twist to the history of Kabbalah.

The modern form of Kabbalah has been mainly practiced by Khazarians (or Khazars) who had all of a sudden converted to Judaism from paganism in 740 AD as a whole people group. They were not Semite Hebrew descendants of Abraham, but mainly Turkish sons of Togarmah, who were decedents of Japheth (Gen 10:2-3), who had an empire located in between the Caspian and Black Seas, in the steppe of the northern Turkey and southern Russia. It is the same area as the ancient Gog and Magog. After ca. 1016, as the empire disintegrated, they migrated mainly to Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East, Northern Africa, and later to Western Europe, including Germany. These Khazars are the group of (non Hebrew) Jews called “Ashkenazim.” They were heavily involved in the economy of all of the ancient trade routes, which led them into being the leaders in all world business and trade industries. Throughout the ages, these Khazarian Jews are modern day Zionists, who believe in the development and protection of a Jewish nation, called Israel. They have manipulated the ‘political and economic systems’ to gain great wealth and power. Zionists are like a locust that devour everything in their power through corruption.  In America, they have been manipulating Hollywood, TV and now they control all media outlets to create an array of very potent organizations and lobbies that ultimately seek not only political and economic power but also complete social control. Now the mere mention of Jews and they will label you “anti-Semitic” although the Ashkenazi and Zionist Jews are not Semitic people at all. Their spiritual and physical descendants also include the Ultra-Orthodox sects of Judaism, such as Hasidic Jews AKA Chabad-Lubavitch sect, which is currently the largest sect of Judaism.

In addition, there are many Jews appearing to be secular or cultural Jews but who practice Kabbalah in secret. Many Messianic Jews, who are also of Khazarian descent, also practice Kabbalah.  It is also a fact that many Messianic and Hebrew Roots ministries now openly mention and honor Kabbalah.

It is these Kazakhs Zionist Ashkenazi, Yiddish speaking people, who regardless of where they have resided—who since biblical times— have been driven out, or killed en mass because of their corrupt and evil ways, which include belief in the supernatural power from sex and worship of the penis. That is why the obelisk has become the phallic symbol in occult Kabbalah-Judaism related worship and architecture.

Tel Aviv, which has already been acknowledged as the world’s most gay-friendly city in the world 

Israel Today

As I report in the WATCHMAN REPORTS ABOVE, and as Stevie Ray Hansen, at https://hnewswire.com/ recently reported in one of his articles entitled Jerusalem New World Order Headquarters, That Ties In Christianity, Judaism And Islam, he stated the following:

“Israel as a country is among the most liberal nations in the world when it comes to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights. It has an active gay community, with well attended annual gay pride festivals which started in 1998. Tel Aviv in Israel is considered the most gay-friendly city in the world!

Tel Aviv Pride is one of Israel’s largest and wildest celebrations. The Pride parade takes place annually as part of Tel Aviv Pride Week, a series of events that brings the city’s LGBTQ community together to celebrate who they are in total freedom. While a 1979 protest held at Rabin Square is often regarded as the city’s first Pride event, Tel Aviv Love Parade in 1997 bears more similarities to the parade as we know it today.

The Tel Aviv Municipality has been making many efforts to cement Tel Aviv’s status as one of the world’s most gay-friendly cities. At Pride 2017, the city’s mayor, Ron Huldai, emphasized Tel Aviv’s liberal position, stating: “Tel Aviv Pride parade is not just a celebration, but also an important declaration of support. Tel Aviv, which has already been acknowledged as the world’s most gay-friendly city will continue to be a lighthouse city – spreading the values of freedom, tolerance and democracy to the world.” -End Quote-

But aren’t we suppose to Bless Israel?

This is a Test!

Those receiving this truth for the first time are having their faith, knowledge of the Bible, and their zeal for the truth TESTED. We are to be discerning and not to be deceived. We must remain on the side of the Truth, no matter how painful the truth may be. Please pray and receive the truth.

As mentioned, those running the State of Israel now are part of Mystery Babylon that will fall by the hands of the Anti-Christ. If the driving force and the method of control of the Judaeo-Christian Masonic-Illuminati cabal is the religion of Kabbalah then, this is Babylon the Mother of Harlots described in the Book of Revelation.

Revelation 17:4-5

(4) The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. (5) And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

What else is controlling the masses and running the whole earth but the Illuminati? Who else could be the “daughter of Babylon” (but the USA) that the Bible speaks of? Kabbalah originated in Babylon, and will meet its end at the destruction of America: (Psalms 137:8) O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he (Satan and his cabal) be, that rewarded you as you have served us.

Christians must not support the current State of Israel, and if they do, they are being controlled by the Zionists. It is not the Israel God is yet going to redeem. This will not happen until our Messiah returns! Many have been falsely taught that the formation of the “State of Israel” was resurrection of the dry bones vision of (Ezekiel 37), but they fail to understand that the bones represent the WHOLE (both) HOUSES (families) of ISRAEL (both Abraham’s “Seed”). Because they are fooled into thinking the current “State of Israel” is the “HOLY NATION” of God or God’s chosen people—they also believe as Christians we are to “bless” this current state of Israel if we want God’s blessing upon our life because of what God said to Abraham (which will be discussed shortly).

I want to make it clear that I am not anti-Semitic in the sense that I hate the “Jewish people”—NOTE: (by “Jewish” I mean Abraham’s physical descendants the “Hebrew” people). I hate no person, I only detest what the believe and practice when it goes against God’s word and ways. Without going into an in depth study at this time, I simply will state that the Bible is very clear about the fact that God’s TRUE Holy Nation is comprised of both Jewish people and gentiles who are born again, Saints of God who have chosen by Him to rule and reign with Christ in His eternal Kingdom—that Jesus Christ will set up upon this earth at His second coming. The Bible says, God called Abraham and his physical descendants, known as the Hebrews—to be chosen as His covenant people during the Old Testament period. The Hebrew people were to be the EXAMPLE to the New Testament “Holy Nation” –called the Body of Christ, proving it was impossible for an unregenerate carnal human being to walk in, meaning to obtain righteousness, peace and joy (i.e. the “kingdom of God”)– even if they did believe in the one true God of Abraham.   

(1 Cor 10:5-6; 11-12) But with many of them (i.e. OT Israel) God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness… Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted… Now all these things happened unto them for examples (i.e. typology): and they are written for our (i.e. the NT “Holy Nation’s”) admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come… Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. KJV

(Rom 11:20-25) Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear… For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either.

The first covenant was God’s covenant with Abraham, in which He promised Abraham he would be a blessing to all families on earth. The Hebrew people that were part of the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom—were called the kingdom of Israel—when that nation was split into two kingdoms (Israel and Judah). Israel (the Northern Kingdom) was conquered by the Assyrians and assimilated into the nations that came into that area. These ten tribes eventually became known as the Samaritans. It was after the destruction of the temple in 70 A.D. that the remaining two tribes, Judah and Benjamin, of the Southern Kingdom were known as Judah (eventually called Jews)—who were also scattered throughout the earth.

Because of this, Hebrew DNA has been mixed among every family upon this earth. The ten tribes have completely lost their Hebrew identity and are often referred to as the lost ten tribes—because they have been mixed with and have been assimilated into every culture, race and religion—throughout the world by means of such things as conquering nations, intermarriages, illegitimate offspring and even through adoptions. Thus, it only takes one Hebrew ancestor in our lineage to impart to us Abraham’s Hebrew DNA.—because of the dispersion of the Hebrew people among all the nations of the world. We must also remember that God promised to bless those who blessed ABRAHAM (not the Hebrew nation as whole) and to curse those who cursed ABRAHAM… this promise was given to Abraham right before he entered the Promised Land.  This promise of blessing and cursing was twofold…

#1. It was for Abraham personally, who was going to face many enemies of God in this new land he was being led into. He was promised blessing (protection and provision) when he entered Canaan, because he had the SEED of blessing within his loins that would bless all nations. This was not and is not a blanket promise of blessing or curse for the natural or carnal descendants of his flesh.

#2. Abraham through his promised SEED would be a blessing to all the families of the earth—who would receive his SEED (Jesus Christ) and they would be cursed if they would not receive his SEED (such as the natural seed of Abraham have been as a nation since the rejection of the true SEED (Jesus Christ) and blessed if they did.

Many Jewish people—of the Southern Kingdom from the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin—kept their Hebrew Jewish identity—and it was from this  “seed” of Abraham of the Jewish Hebrew lineage of Judah that Jesus Christ was born. This means every person who is born again through faith in Jesus Christ, has been “blessed” by Abraham through receiving the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. How incredible to think that every family on earth in our present world has some Hebrew DNA—due to the dispersion of the ten tribes…

Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, unto a land that I will show you… And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing… And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and through you shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Gen 12:1-3)

Abraham was seen as righteous by God because of His faith… (Rom 4:9)For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. Therefore, because we have been blessed by Abraham’s DNA we have all been blessed with a measure of his faith. The word faith asdefined in the New Testament comes from the Greek root word (Strong’s 3982) peitho (pi’-tho). The meanings to this word gives us the three essential aspects or measures that constitutes whole or complete faith. This word is defined as to be convinced, to agree and to obey. Thus, because of Abraham’s blessing within us we all have been given at least the first measure or element of faith—which is we can all be convinced by the truth when we hear it. (Rom 12:3) God hath dealt to every man a measure (an aspect) of faith.

Our human spirit (conscience) is created to respond to the truth when it is revealed. When the Bible talks about a person being convicted by the truth—this literally means their human conscience (spirit) has been convinced that what they heard was the truth. If a person does not respond by agreement to the conviction of the truth, then their heart becomes hardened and they not only disagree with and disobey the truth—the ability to become convicted diminishes. Thus, whoever refuses the conviction of God’s truth is cursed –because they dishonor the measure of Abraham’s faith that they have been given—by refusing to receive the truth. Those who activate their measure of faith by agreeing with and obeying the truth, after it has convicted them—are a blessing (honoring) God by walking in the faith of Abraham.                        

…that he (Abraham) might be the father (source) for all them that believe (use their inherited measure of faith)…who also walk in the steps of the faith of our father Abraham…  (Rom 4:11-12) (Parenthesis Mine)

The CWSD (Complete Word Studies Dictionary) defines the word father (Strong’s 3962) in the Greek as “genitor” and is related to the Greek word “genos” (1085), which is where we get our word “genes” from. Therefore, we are all truly Abraham’s seed either by having his physical Hebrew gene (as previously explained) or by faith in his spiritual seed—Jesus Christ. Another important fact I find fascinating is, if you do a complete study on the genealogy of Jesus Christ that is given in (Matt 1:1-16)—you will find that his physical genetic seed comes from every ethnic group on the planet—because of the intermarriages within His lineage with all of the other nations of the earth. As a result, Jesus Christ carried within Him the entire seed of all humanity! As mentioned, it is through Abraham’s Hebraic DNA within us that we will either bless or curse our Father Abraham—according to our faith response. I make this point because many Christians have been falsely taught (as I was) that to “bless Abraham” simply means to bless the current modern State of Israel and the “Jewish people”—who are an anti-Christ godless nation.

The false Kabbalah teachers have convinced Christians that if we do this we will be blessed and those who refuse to support the current nation of Israel will be cursed.  However, as shown this is not what (Gen 12:1-3) says, those who add this idea to the context of that text—to make it say what they want it to say—are creating a pretext for idolizing the Jewish people Judaism and their culture. Again, this text is not talking about the literal “nation (state) of Israel” or the Jewish people as a whole—it was however, said to ABRAM personally, while trying to enter the land of Canaan. When God said every nation of the world would be blessed through Him, he was referring to His SEED Jesus Christ. This false idea that we should bless an ungodly people group or a nation that hates Jesus Christ—and one that totally blasphemes Him in their evil anti-biblical Talmudic-Kabbalah teachings—is absurd. Blessing them—only causes us to become a partaker of their evil deeds—which the Scriptures forbid! The Bible says this…

I will continue this discussion in PART 2…

PART 2: Refining the New Wine

By Karen Connell

This is Part 2, from the article: NEW WINE REVELATION OR SPIRITUAL INTOXICATION that is an excerpt from Chapter 5 of my book, ANATOMY FOR DECEPTION: If Possible Even the Very Elect Will Be Deceived, in which I discuss the subject of “new wine.”

Because the Word of God uses wine to symbolize Spiritual revelation it must be good wine that comes from a good vineyard and God calls His people to be His vineyard. But if a vineyard lacks proper care it will not produce good wine. Therefore, God appoints ministers to care for His people to see that they produce good fruit and good wine. However, reliable ministers are not always available. “Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness” (Jeremiah 12:10, KJV).

If we are to become a fruitful vineyard that produces good “tirowsh” wine, God must cultivate all Spiritual fruit and revelation in our lives. Therefore, we need pastors and teachers who will not compromise the truth and standard of His word so that we, the body of Christ, will become His fruitful vineyard. “My Well-beloved has a vineyard on a very fruitful hill. He dug it up and cleared out its stones, and planted it with the choicest vine. He built a tower in its midst, and also made a winepress in it; so He expected it to bring forth good grapes, But it brought forth wild grapes” (Isaiah 5:1-3,7, NKJ). “What more could I have done to cultivate a rich harvest?

Why did my vineyard give me wild grapes when I expected sweet ones?” (Vs. 4, NLT). “For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry” (Vs. 7, KJV).

Wine experts consider several conditions to determine the quality of a fine wine. They are as follows:

  • Soil condition: Our lives must be properly cultivated as illustrated in the parable of the sower. All stones and thorns must be removed. (Matthew 13:3-23).
  • Well maintained vineyards: We must allow God our Father to prune us so we can be fruitful. (John 15:1-4).
  • Good quality fruit: needs proper light and water. (Isaiah 27:2-3).
  • Harvested at the proper time: A good vintage requires gathering the crop at the right time. God has His seasons for the new wine of His revelation to be harvested. (Ecclesiastes 3:2, Matthew 13:30).
  • Properly processed: We must be strained and refined. (Jeremiah 48:11).

An especially good high-quality wine is known for the following:

  • Clarity: It is clear (pure) and sparkling (joyful); not cloudy.
  • Sweetness: Not bitterness issues.
  • A Distinguishable Flavor of the fruit: The fruit of godly character is evident.

When God pours out the new wine of fresh revelation truth into His vessel, it is a time of excitement, celebration and joy. But it is also a time when things become stirred up within an individual or the corporate body that receives it. Therefore, in order for a new revelation to become pure, or clear to us, it must go through His refining process within us. After the initial stirring or excitement from a fresh outpouring, there eventually comes a time when things settle down so clarity can be achieved. In other words, God intends spiritual insight and understanding to be “poured from vessel to vessel” or shared with other members (vessels) in the body because this enables them to have input regarding the new wine.

God pours His new wine into His vessels which are new and also into renewed wineskins which are properly prepared to receive it. Otherwise, wrong ideas and false teaching may result from His new revelation. To explain, many who receive “new wine” revelation from God, but do not allow Him to deal with unwanted mixture in their wineskins, end up teaching things they should not. Thus they bring themselves under a curse because they are doing this work of the Lord in a deceitful manner.

“Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully, and cursed be he that keeps back his sword from blood. Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither has he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.” ‘Therefore behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘that I shall send him wine-workers who will tip him over and empty his vessels and break the bottles’ (Jeremiah 48:10-12, NKJV).

Moab, the incestuous child of Lot, was a relative of Abraham. I find this interesting because I see Moab representing a type of Christian who is the product of “spiritual incest.” By this I mean they are born again and raised up under leaders who never go outside of their religious clan, camp, stream or denomination – who are not willing to empty their vessel of pet doctrines in order to receive a fresh infilling of new wine from other vessels of God. He clearly wants us to hear and discern what others in the body of Christ preach and teach, who are not parts of our own little group, because they may have a completely different flavor of ministry. God wants interaction in His body which allows us to judge what others teach and believe – and allows others to judge what we teach and believe. This is how the valuable gifts of revelation and discernment are intended to operate within the body of Christ. Therefore, these revelatory gifts are essential in their operation if true unity and interaction is to take place in God’s universal church. “So let… [those inspired to preach or teach] speak, while the rest pay attention and weigh and discern what is said. But if an inspired revelation comes to another who is sitting by, then let the first one be silent. For in this way you can give testimony thus interpreting the divine will and purpose one by one, so that all may be instructed and all may be encouraged” (1 Corinthians 14:29-31, AMP).

Even though this instruction was given by the Apostle Paul to the church in Corinth, it contains a vital principle for interaction among body members that should be practiced among the universal body of Christ. What Paul taught requires discernment which creates agreement and true unity within Christ’s entire body. We are told to pay attention and discern what other body members teach and preach and to share any revelatory spiritual insight that we believe God gives us as a result. If we read and listen only to what our favorite group or denomination says, we may not become fully equipped as effective body members who are called to do the work of the ministry according to (Ephesians 4:12). We may end up doing the work of the ministry deceitfully, knowingly or unknowingly. “Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully” (Jeremiah 48:10 KJV).

By hearing what other parts of the body proclaim, we can judge and discern if it is according to God’s truth. If it is knowledge we have lacked, it then becomes God’s inspired revelation to us. It becomes “new wine” poured into our vessel for our instruction and encouragement. If on the other hand we discern something that is not an accurate Word from the Lord, there must be correction and instruction or sound teaching as to why it disagrees. This is what the Apostle Paul did to publicly correct the Apostle Peter when he discerned that mixture entered the church at Jerusalem in (Galatians 2:14).

It is important to see how other parts of the body live and to hear what they preach and teach so correction can be given and received if there is error. Thus, seeing and hearing is necessary in order to give and receive encouragement. It always encourages me when I hear others preach or teach something that confirms what God has already revealed to me or corrects something, I may be embracing that is contrary to the Scriptures. Likewise, it is exciting when other body members tell me that what I have taught or preached confirmed what they heard God speak to them, or corrected and area of error they had embraced. This type of instruction and encouragement among body members knits us together and strengthens our faith immensely. Therefore, we must remember that there is not one group within Christendom that has a “corner” on the understanding and interpretation of divine revelatory truth from God. All true believers are given the anointing to know all truth (1 John 2:27). In other words, there are Christians within all camps, streams and denominations who have received various aspects of God’s wisdom “to the intent that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church…” (Ephesians 3:10, NKJV).

Notice that the wisdom of God is called His “manifold wisdom.” This literally means His wisdom gives us many aspects and ways to see His truth in the Word. Therefore, since no one person or group has all “aspects” of God’s wisdom, each body member should be a contributing member. “Do you think that the knowledge of God’s word begins and ends with you? Well, you are mistaken!” (1 Corinthians 14:36, NLT).

The words of the prophet Jeremiah revealed that “Moab” type Christians are comfortably at ease with their “lees” which are also called “dregs” (Jeremiah 48:10-12). Lees represent what needs to be removed from our “wine” or spiritual understanding. Israel got comfortable with what God wanted them to get rid of, and they were not willing to embrace the needed changes which came from being poured into other vessels, thus they needed to experience “exile.” Exile is God’s way of moving us into new places so His predestined purposes can be accomplished. “Moab has been at ease from his youth; He has settled on his dregs [lees], and has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, nor has he gone into exile” (Vs. 11, AMP).

Being emptied from vessel to vessel and “exile” depicts being removed out of one’s familiar comfort zone and forced to mix with “outsiders.” God wants us to mix with the rest of the body of Christ so we can pour ourselves into other vessels and can get rid of any lees or dregs which may be hindering our spiritual understanding. In other words, when we allow Him to pour us from vessel to vessel, spiritual things become clearer and clearer. If not, our personal taste for the way we like to discern or  see things never changes.  God says “…Neither has he gone into exile. Therefore his taste remains in him, and his scent has not changed” (Vs.11, AMP).

Exile is also God’s way of getting us out of our comfortable church pews so our wine can be poured into those vessels needing a revelation of Jesus of Christ as their Redeemer. Exile is an opportunity to pour what God has given to us into those who are outside of our comfortable area of familiarity. There have been many times in my life when God suddenly picked me up from a place where I knew He had placed me and sent me into exile, that is, away from my “comfortable” church. Every time this happened it was His opportunity to get rid of things in my vessel that clouded my spiritual understanding. As a result, I always came out of an exile experience with much more clarity concerning His Word and ways. I find that in times of exile, I am given opportunities to empty myself – to pour a fresh infilling of what God has poured into me into other empty vessels that need it. The Lord has His ways of turning our lives upside down when we settle upon our “comfortable lees.” In order to be vessels of honor, and not do the work of the Lord deceitfully, the dregs or lees must be left behind. His wine must be poured from vessel to vessel so it can become clear and sparkling. “Therefore behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I shall send to [Moab] tilters who shall tilt him up and shall empty his vessels and break his bottles [earthenware] in pieces” (Jeremiah 48:12, AMP).

The removal of lees that make wine cloudy makes it sparkly and bright. It is the “lees” of wrong teaching and misinterpreted Scripture that cloud our “wine” of spiritual understanding. Therefore, the dregs (another name for lees) are left behind when God pours us from vessel to vessel through interaction with other parts of the body of Christ. Dregs are used to make wine ferment and give it an “individual flavor.” If we resist change or fight against a needed “exile” our wine of spiritual understanding will turn  into  an  intoxicating  deception  because  it contains our own “flavor” of understanding, which we will go on to teach others. But if we allow God to pour us from vessel to vessel, He removes the lees to clear confused mindsets. If, like Moab, people will not empty themselves of the dross within, and are not willing to be poured from vessel to vessel on their own, God says that He will send “tilters” to turn their lives upside down. Then they will be forced into a place they did not want to go and have their lives broken in pieces. It is during those times that “Moab” Christians will have to be broken and humbled the hard way. It breaks God’s heart to see “Moab’s” resist to the point where they have to lose it all and be completely broken. But it is God’s intent that they come to their end, so He can bring healing and restoration. “My heart moans for Moab like soft flute sounds carried by the wind. They’ve lost it all. They’ve got nothing” (Jeremiah 48:36, TMB). ‘Woe to you, O Moab! The people have been taken captive. Yet I will restore the captives of Moab in the latter days,’ says the Lord. ‘Thus far is the judgment of Moab’ (Vs. 46-47, NKJV).

 Both Moab and Ephraim type Christians have one thing in common – drunkenness! This is because their minds are clouded by bitterness and pride. “Let her stagger and fall like a drunkard, for she has rebelled against the Lord. Moab will wallow in her own vomit, ridiculed by all…We have heard of the pride of Moab, for it is very great. We know of her loftiness, her arrogance, and her haughty heart. I know about her insolence,’ says the Lord, ‘but her boasts are false; they accomplish nothing” (Jeremiah 48: 26, 29- 30, NLT).

It is important to see that God also relates drunkenness, an Ephraim trait, to issues of pride. Christians who are not teachable and willing to receive the Word of the Lord from other parts of the body of Christ are in grave danger of being deceived. Because of pride, they will not allow words of correction to be spoken into their lives when they believe, preach or teach what is contrary to God’s Word. They are like the nation of Moab who was hostile to God’s people Israel. If you look at the history of Moab and Israel, you will see that Moab refused Israel access to their land. In the same way, “Moabite Christians” do not allow God’s people access to their lives. Moab refused to share bread and water with Israel, which is symbolic of a refusal to have “communion” by sharing God’s Word with the rest of the body of Christ. Both the Moabites and the Ammonites were involved with idolatry (doing their own thing spiritually) and with cursing God’s people. Because of this they were banned from the congregation of the Lord for ten generations. “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the Lord forever because they did not meet you with bread and water on the road when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam, the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you” (Deuteronomy 23:3-4, NKJV).

Remember that the name “Israel” literally means “he who possess and rules with the authority of God” (CWSD 3478). Therefore, when Moabite or Ephraim type Christians reject opportunities for communion (true fellowship) through the sharing of revelatory truth, their rebellion and deception will cut them off from the Lord’s true congregation. This is how they become part of the apostate church because whatever wine of truth they do have from God eventually becomes fermented and spoiled by their lees, because they refuse to be emptied out and refilled. In other words, their wine becomes a mixture of deception. Yet, as much as it grieves God’s heart, He will allow Moabite and Ephraim type Christians to be broken until they reach their end with the hope of being restored. “Yet I will restore the captives of Moab in the latter days (in the time of their end), says the Lord” (Jeremiah 48:47, NKJV, parenthesis mine).

The Lord calls the leaders of drunken Ephraim type ministries “heads” over “verdant valleys.” These are leaders over prosperous looking ministries, who like Moab and Ephraim, have been overcome by the “yayin” wine of deception. “Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower which is at the head of the verdant valleys, to those who are overcome with wine!” (Isaiah 28:1-6, NKJV).

It is significant that the Hebrew word “yayin” (Strong’s 3196) which means intoxicating wine, expresses the idea of boiling up and foaming. Anyone who has ever seen something ferment knows that it boils up and foams. This fermentation happens when the bacteria mold from yeast is present in a substance. These things, mold, fermentation and yeast, were considered to be defiling to the Jews and it is not hard to understand why – they can make people sick or drunk! These defiling things represent anything that is contrary to God’s will, word or ways. I want to emphasize again the reason that God’s people get drawn into deception or spiritual drunkenness is because they trample upon His word, will or ways and become drunk with the deception (leaven) they embrace. This crown of pride must be trampled under our feet or it will cause us to be trampled on by the deception of the enemy. “The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, will be trampled underfoot” (Vs.3).

Another Hebrew word for “new wine” is “aciyc.” It means “fresh grape juice that has been trampled” (CWSD 6071). This word was used in a word spoken by the prophet Joel. “Awake, you drunkards, and weep; And wail, all you drinkers of wine (yayin), because of the new wine (aciyc), for it has been cut off from (or by) your mouth… The land mourns; for the grain is ruined, the new wine (tirowsh) is dried up, the oil (the anointing) fails. Be ashamed…” (Joel 1:5,10, NKJV, parenthesis mine).

In the context of these verses, the Prophet Joel described a lion which came up and brought destruction to God’s fruitful vineyard through drunkenness. The lion represents Satan who devours and destroys the vineyard through a counterfeit anointing which dried up God’s (tirowsh) new wine of true revelation. When this happens in the body of Christ—this results in drunkenness that causes one to speak against the truth, cutting it off from those who bring it. But there are grave consequences for speaking against the truth. Joel’s prophecy also describes how the pure new wine becomes dried up after it is trampled underfoot. Dryness as previously stated, is associated with confusion. When God’s people lose the anointing, there is no new wine and the new wine they do have becomes stale and intoxicating. Thus, there is a foaming and boiling up, which is symbolic of bitterness and anger issues. “Looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled” (Hebrews 12:15, NKJV).

Simply put, bitter people have an anger that keeps them from appreciating God’s wisdom. Because anger is defended through pride, this will not allow them to see the lasting beauty of God’s Wisdom (truth). Deceived people forever seek answers  to their problems but fail to humbly repent and embrace the truth that would set them free. As a result, bitterness and pride cause them to become greedy for self-gratification. Deceived Ephraim-type Christians may eagerly seek wisdom or truth, but to them it is like a fading flower. Their search for truth is inevitably consumed upon their own lusts. To them truth… “sits in a fertile valley, but its glorious beauty will suddenly disappear. It will be greedily snatched up, as an early fig is hungrily picked and eaten” (Isaiah 28:4, NLT).

Because of greed, those in deception are forever asking God to help them with the painful consequences that bitterness produces in their lives. But they never look for the truth about WHY they are in such pain. This is because truth does not always sound pleasant, nice, or “Christian,” to them, so their pride and bitterness keeps them from asking the right questions and from receiving the truth. If however, the truth is honestly sought and humbly received, the truth will set them free! “And even when you do ask, you don’t get it because your whole motive is wrong — you want only what will give you pleasure” (James 4:3, NLT).

As I studied (Isaiah 28:4), I was reminded of many in our ministry who are no longer here. Unresolved anger issues led them into deception and the enemy seized his opportunity to snatch them right out of the front door of our church! Have you ever noticed how prideful and angry people are so easily offended? They refuse to deal with the “three-fold cord” root issues of rejection, bitterness and pride which Jesus taught in the parable of the sower. When pride becomes a stumbling block, truth becomes a rock of offence. So they reject the truth! They refuse to apply it to their root issues. In other words, they do not allow truth to go deeply in their lives to create a healthy root system when it is clearly given. “Yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word (of truth), by and by he is offended” (Matthew 13:21 KJV, parenthesis mine).

In (Isaiah 28:4) it states that pride was “the crown of Ephraim.” Thus pride is what rules those who have a form of godliness in the apostate church, where Satan’s lies are the basis for the underlying issues of anger and lust as seen in the (John 8:44) principle, which is referred to in Chapter Four. In the context of (Isaiah of 28:4) the “glorious beauty,” is the fruitful Word of truth, which is quickly “snatched up” by “greed”. This is what the prophet Joel described and the point Jesus made in His parable of the sower. He taught that those in bitterness and pride often see truth as “glorious and beautiful” when they first hear it but become soon troubled or offended by it when it does not take root in their lives. “But when the sun rose, they [the seeds of truth] were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away… this is he who hears the Word and at once welcomes and accepts it with joy. But when it comes up against the rocky barrier of pride, it is quickly dried up because it troubles them” (Matthew 13:6, 20-21, AMP).

Prideful people must have their strong self-wills broken so they can willingly submit to the truth. Anyone who has had a rebellious child knows that a good spanking, or some other form of painful punishment, can cause them to bend their stubborn prideful will. Likewise, professing Christians who are ruled by their physical nature, and not by their spiritual nature, must be dealt with by punishment that pains their physical being. “Physical punishment cleanses away evil; such discipline purifies the heart” (Proverbs 20:30, NLT).

Those of the Ephraim crowd also represent the part of God’s household who are like the prodigal son. Because of pride and rebellion, they end up living in a pigpen. Parents who truly love their child do not give into or ignore their sin because they do not want to allow rebellion to destroy their child. Like the father did in the parable, we must love these rebellious ones enough to allow bad things to bring them to their end. I too needed physical chastisement in order to wake up, come to my senses and truly repent according to God’s way. He says, “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent” (Revelation 3:19, NKJV).

We can also find the Ephraim crowd represented by the church of Laodicea. Jesus clearly described them and told John the Apostle what to write concerning them. “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God. I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ — and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked. I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches” (Revelation 3:14-22, NKJV).

It’s important to examine what Jesus says to this church which aptly describes Ephraim-type Christians.

■ “You are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot” (Vs. 16). The first thing Jesus addressed was their mixture. “Ephraim has mixed himself” (Hosea 7:8-10). Laodicean Christians are also a mixed bunch. Like Ephraim, they are not completely cold (false) or completely hot (true). Therefore, Jesus says how their mixture makes Him feel. “I will vomit you out of My mouth” because their mixture makes Him sick (Vs. 16).

■ “You say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’ (Vs. 17). This bold proclamation is definitely another Ephraim trait. “And Ephraim said, ‘Surely I have become rich, I have found wealth for myself; in all my labors they shall find in me no iniquity that is sin’ (Hosea 12:8, NKJV). The pride of Ephraim-type Christians produces a false image of themselves. They are deceived about their sin because they are prosperous. In other words, they prefer to see themselves as pure, when in reality, they are not. Jesus says “you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and have white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be exposed”(Vs. 17-18). The gold He told them to buy represents true purity but it comes with the costly price of His refining fire. This can mean trouble and trials that will allow things to be seen as God sees them so they can repent. They will have to pay the price of becoming humble which requires death to self and to the false self image they have erected.

■“Anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see” (Vs. 18). Ephraim’s are dried up wineskins. They have lost the anointing of the Holy Spirit which gives them the ability to discern. I like what the Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary says about the eye salve Jesus said they needed. “The Holy Spirit’s unction, like ancient eye-salves, first smarts with conviction of sin, then heals: He opens our eyes first to our wretchedness, then to the Savior’s preciousness.”11 I am always amazed by how many professing Christians utterly lack true discernment and the unction of the Holy Spirit that causes us to see and intuitively know the truth. There have been many times that my natural mind said “yes” to something but the inward witness of God’s Spirit said “no” to my spirit. When I do not follow this leading of the Spirit and listen instead to my own human reasoning, I will always be deceived. “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you—you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true” (1 John 2:20,27, NKJV).

Those which the southern tribe Judah represents God’s true Saints. They live according to the will of the Spirit and not the will of the flesh. But those which the northern tribe of Ephraim represents are professing Christians who follow their old sinful human nature. Therefore, only those who are led by God’s Holy Spirit will yield to Him when He appeals to their conscience. “So, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation whatsoever to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. For if you keep on following it, you will perish. But if through the power of the Holy Spirit you turn from it and its evil deeds, you will live” (Romans 8:12-13, NLT). “For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. The Spirit Himself [thus] testifies together with our own spirit…” (Vs. 16, AMP).

In (Isaiah 28:5), the prophet speaks about a remnant of people who will finally yield to the truth, repent and come out of Ephraim type churches. This will not happen, however, until God’s chastisement comes through His judgments. God must judge His own household first before He can rain down judgment upon the heathen who fight against Him and follow the anti-Christ influence. I see God’s judgments as a catalyst for true revival among His household. Even though it breaks His heart to see the “Moab’s” broken and punished and the “Ephraim’s” go through judgment, we must remember that the purpose of God’s judgments is to restore and redeem those He loves. Judgment is God’s way of getting His rebellious ones to bend their will to His through repentance. “I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself: ‘You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like an untrained bull; Restore me, and I will return, for You are the Lord my God. Surely, after my turning, I repented; and after I was instructed, I struck myself on the thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even humiliated, because I bore the reproach of my youth.’ Is Ephraim My dear son? Is he a pleasant child? For though I spoke against him, I earnestly remember him still; Therefore, My heart yearns for him; I will surely have mercy on him, says the Lord” (Jeremiah 31:18-20, NKJV).

God says that Ephraim’s need to experience a turning so they can have true repentance. The Hebrew word for “turned” in verse 18 is “shuwb.” It means to “return to the starting point” so there can be a “rescue and restoration” (CWSD 7725). Jesus says, “Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place unless you repent” (Revelation 2:5, NKJV).

Is true revival all about repentance? Is it about starting all over from the beginning? Many are looking for a great worldwide revival among the lost, but I submit to you that God has to bring revival to the largest segment of His household first. “For the time has arrived for judgment to begin with the household of God” (1 Peter 4:17, AMP).

Jesus Christ is coming back for a glorious church which He describes as pure and holy. The Ephraim crowd cannot be a part of this glorious church until they are given a chance to repent so they can be made holy (set free and set apart from everything that defiles them). Again, this will not happen without God’s judgment falling upon them. But Ephraim type Christians do not want to talk about His judgment. They only want to talk about the blessings and the goodness of God, which is true in part. However, those who refuse to acknowledge the severity of God and are in for a rude awakening! “Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell severity (by refusing truth); but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off” (Rom 11:22 NKJV parenthesis mine).

God loves us enough to do whatever He must to bring us to repentance. Even if it means a good old fashioned trip to the “woodshed”; which means a good spanking to those of you who are too young to know about this kind of correction. I believe one of the greatest deceptions God’s people have embraced is the lie that corporeal punishment is child abuse. “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of correction will drive it far from him” (Proverbs 22:15, NKJV).

God does not abuse His children, but He does believe in physical pain as an effective way to bring correction. “Because Ephraim has made many altars for sin, they have become for him altars for sinning. I have written for him the great things of My law, but they were considered it a strange thing. For the sacrifices of My offerings they sacrifice flesh and eat it, but the Lord does not accept them. Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins” (Hosea 8:11-14, NKJV).

 Notice how Ephraim-type Christians consider God’s law to be strange. They love to hear about His grace but not about His law! They do not worship God in spirit and in truth. Instead, they love to serve Him according to the means and ways of their flesh and soul. God is clear about not accepting those who try to worship Him while they love to indulge in their sinful fleshly ways. So much of what goes on inside the sanctuaries of Ephraim-type Christians is nothing more than altars for sinning and this will be punished. Yet God said there would be a remnant from this group who would yield to Him because of His punishment and turn in a place of repentance. “They shall come with weeping, and with supplications I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters, in a straight way in which they shall not stumble; for I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn. Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, ‘He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.’ For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the  hand of one stronger than he (Jeremiah 31:9-11, NKJV).

I firmly believe we have entered a time when God is gathering all the tribes of His Holy nation, including Ephraim, to Himself. One of the ways He will do this is through some very painful judgments which are always meant to redeem and restore those who are willing to “turn and learn” from them. Therefore, we must continue to seek God in order to understand His directives concerning those who have been scattered because of their rebellion and deception. Even though He promised to punish and chastise “Ephraims” His heart is to see them repent and not perish. But the choice to repent or perish is up to them. “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance…Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless” (2 Peter 3:9,14, NKJV).

PART 1: New Wine Revelation or Spiritual Intoxication

by Karen Connell

Many of you may know that in Biblical typology, “new wine” is a representation of “new or fresh revelation” from God to His people. The Bible has much to say concerning this and it is important to understand, because there is an abundance of “personal revelations” that have come forth within the past 2000 years of church history, which have become the basis for many “false moves of God” and “false doctrines.” Therefore, it is crucial to understand the “kind” of “wine” (revelation) and “wine skin” a spiritual revelation is coming from.

The following article is an excerpt from Chapter 5 of my book, ANATOMY FOR DECEPTION: If Possible Even the Very Elect Will Be Deceived, in which I discuss the subject of “new wine”.

The first type of wine we need to look at is defined by the Hebrew word “tirowsh” (tee-roshe’) which means “vintage” or “sweet wine” (CWSD 3196). Jesus called it new wine. “And no one puts new wine (tirowsh) into old wineskins. The old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins. That way both the wine and the wineskins are preserved” (Matthew 9:17, NLT, parenthesis mine).

I find it interesting to see that the old wineskins burst from the pressure of new wine. A “wineskin” represents an individual, a church or a denomination and “new wine” represents a fresh, new or present spiritual understanding of God’s truth poured into each one. I call this a “now” word or a word in “due season” which has new understanding or a new perspective on God’s truth. His Word says it is “present truth.” This word exposes sin or simply reveals something that was not previously known or correctly understood before and made plain now because it is needed now to help perfect and mature God’s people in the season they are presently in. “Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth” (2 Peter 1:12, KJV).

In the command to “be established in present truth,” the verb tense refers to becoming “stable” or “steadfast” and  being continuously “established” (Strong’s 4741). There are many unstable believers out there who are not established in the truth of God’s Word because pride rose up and resisted His present truth. In other words, pride made them not honest and teachable when present truth was given to them. Prideful resistance, as a consequence, always causes great pressure within an individual, church or denomination that leads to double-minded Christians and church splits. In order to alleviate this pressure, an old wineskin must be willing to be renewed. That is, it must be immersed in the water of God’s Word in order to confirm that the wine is truly His new wine and not something false. Seeking God to confirm what we hear from the Scriptures brings a unity with Him and others of like faith which that releases the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Thus God’s anointing is like the oil that ran down the beard of Aaron the Old Testament priest in (Psalm 133:1-2). His anointing permeates the wineskin (the individual, church or denomination) and makes it soft and pliable so it can receive the “new wine” of new spiritual understanding that will be able to remain in the wineskin. This soft and pliable wineskin will not burst under the pressure of hearing something new or unfamiliar.

Anytime we honestly seek God to confirm what we are hear through His word, He gives us His anointing. This is the ability to receive and maintain His “new wine” of Spiritual revelation and understanding. Without honestly studying His Word, there is no anointing from the Holy Spirit to teach us all that we need to know. Instead of seeking God for truth when something new is heard, people often look for Scriptures to back up what they already believe or want to believe because they are not open to God’s present truth. Many also run from church to church and from conference to conference hoping to receive a “word” from God through a prophet or teacher. When a dried up wineskin does not soak in His Word to personally receive fresh revelation, it is open to being destroyed by deception. Therefore, new wine is not some “new teaching” of men or some “new spiritual” experience proclaimed by ministers. We must beware of teachers and prophets who try to use Scriptures to justify some new spiritual experience or revelation that is not firmly and clearly established in the Word of God.

There are many false teachers and prophets who are writing a myriad of books that contain many supposed Scriptural justifications for false teachings and bad theology. What does not actually appear in a Scripture, which should be used to justify a new revelation or teaching, is what they simply read into it! Therefore, if readers do not know their Bible, they are good candidates for deception because assumptions, implications, possibilities and opinions have replaced sound hermeneutics in much of our modern Christian teaching. In other words, much is pulled out of context to justify a personal opinion or some innovative revelation made by false teachers. When the Holy Spirit, the Revealer of Truth, is not the teacher, the natural academic mind takes over and produces unstable teachers and erroneous theological doctrines as “some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures” (2 Peter 3:16, NKJV). Martin Luther, a great reformer, warned about this very thing:

“Woe betide all our teachers and authors who go their merry way and spew forth whatever is uppermost in their minds, and do not first turn a thought over ten times to be sure it is right in the sight of God! These think the devil is away for a while in Babylon, or asleep at their side like a dog on a cushion. They do not consider that he is round about them with all his venomous flaming darts which he puts into them, such superlatively beautiful thought adorned with Scripture that they are unaware of what is happening.” (Luther’s Works 37, pg.13-18)

Innovative, novel or other kinds of “creative” teaching often promotes academic respectability, credibility and advancement in the body of Christ; and financial reward, prestige and popularity have become the rewards for these kinds of Scriptural interpretations. Therefore, “new” experiences, “new” teachings and “new” revelations are often highly esteemed and sought after by deceived Christian academicians. But revelations from Jesus Christ, who is the God of truth and called the Word of God, are never contrary to or apart from the Scriptures. “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, (so) you (can) know all things… the same anointing teaches you concerning all things… the anointing which you have received from Him (is to) abide (remains) in you…” (1 John 2:20,27, NKJV, parenthesis mine).

Any individual, church and denomination that is given a new Spiritual understanding (new wine) needs God’s anointing to know and be taught all things from His Word. Then they will not receive some intoxicating deception from the devil. Martin Luther is a good example. He was a Catholic priest who received his “new wine” revelation of being saved by grace. His “personal wineskin” was made ready to receive this “new wine” because he prayerfully spent time to be immersed in God’s Word. But this was not the case for many leaders in his denomination. They refused to immerse themselves in prayer and in the study of the Scriptures to see if Luther’s new wine of “salvation by grace alone” stood the test of Scriptural accuracy. In other words, the Holy Spirit could not anoint their prideful understanding because they refused to seek truth. Instead, they made up their minds according to what they always believed. Not to mention the loss of personal gain that would have affected them if the truth were to be accepted. If we also have our own agendas or go to the Word of God with a made up mind, all we will ever see is what we have always seen and understood. We will not grow in the knowledge that comes from Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God. “You therefore, beloved, since you know this before- hand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked. But grow in the grace and knowledge from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever” (2 Peter 3:17-18, NKJV).

The Holy Spirit’s anointing is for those who are humble and teachable – for those who honestly want to know the truth. Therefore an old wineskin can be made ready to receive and retain new Spiritual understanding as revelatory truth from God if pride is not an issue. When God pours out His new wine of new understanding within us, great joy and strength is the result. We also hear His Holy Spirit make clear to us what we need to know so we can be delivered from deception and confusion. “These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full” (John 15:11, KJV).

Again, when pride keeps defiling iniquities working within us, we cannot rightly discern what God is presently saying to us. Then we become dried up and filled with confusion. Christians who do not realize they have lost the ability to discern correctly are bound up with this Ephraim type characteristic (as previously discussed concerning the “Ephraim typology”). “The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid” (Hosea 13:12, KJV).

When we are not free to discern error and what God is saying because of pride, our human reasoning will embrace many good sounding ideas and deceptions. When our understanding becomes clouded, the truth we do understand cannot bring freedom because of an internal pressure that  comes  from  the  confusion  of wrong perceptions about the truth. For example, I personally have tried to pour God’s new wine into those who are dried up and bound up. But their pride rose up and often caused them to blow up in frustration and confusion because they were bound by a spirit of deception. “But we belong to God; that is why those who know God listen to us. If they do not belong to God, they do not listen to us. That is how we know if someone has the Spirit of truth or the spirit of deception” (1John 4:6, NLT).

The old dry wineskins in the Catholic Church, in Martin Luther’s day, reacted the same way. They wanted to put Luther to death as a heretic because of the “new wine” revelation and understanding he tried to pour into their dried up wineskins. Pride in their old wineskins caused such pressure that a church split resulted into a new wineskin called the Protestant Church. If God is not allowed to restore and renew an old wine skin so it can receive His new wine, He allows the old one to be destroyed and raises up a new one that will receive it. In addition, when pressure builds up within an old dried-up wineskin, it rejects the wisdom of God and manifests demonic wisdom. The Apostle James said, “This wisdom is…even devilish [demoniacal]. For wherever there is jealousy [envy] and contention [rivalry and selfish ambition], there will also be confusion [unrest, disharmony, rebellion] and all sorts of evil and vile practices” (James 3:15-16, AMP, parenthesis mine).

If people get angry when you give them the truth in love, for their own good, it is usually because they do not want to receive it. God’s wrath will then be upon them and rightly so because His truth is His freely given gift which is meant to set them free. “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them” (Romans 1:18-19, NKJV).

The sweet “tirowsh” wine represents the wisdom or revelation of God which the Apostle James says is “good fruit.” In other words, God’s wisdom is manifested through the fruits of the Holy Spirit. “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy”(James 3:17, KJV).

 Therefore, God’s Spirit of wisdom does not manifest through spiritual drunkenness because drunkenness in any form is a bad fruit of the flesh. It is also a sensual manifestation of demonic wisdom working through the flesh. “When you follow the desires of your sinful (fleshly) nature, your lives will produce these evil results (bad fruit such as): sexual immorality…the feeling that everyone is wrong except those in your own little group…envy, drunkenness” (Galatians 5:19-21, NLT, parenthesis mine).

New “Tirowsh” wine was used in the tithe offerings of God’s people. Sweet and freshly squeezed from the grape, it was the only wine ever used by the priests in their tabernacle ministry. Thus the natural state of “tirowsh” wine remained unaltered. But the intoxicating “yayin” wine was altered. “For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall bring the offering of the grain, of the new wine (tirowsh) and the oil, to the storerooms where the articles of the sanctuary are, where the priests who minister and the gatekeepers and the singers are; and we will not neglect the house of our God” (Nehemiah 10:39-11:1, NKJV, parenthesis mine).

God said also that “tirowsh” wine is not to be shared with those who do not know Him or worship Him. “And the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, for which you have labored” (Isaiah 62:8, NKJV). Notice how “tirowsh” wine was something the people of God put in some time and effort to acquire. Those who do not want to spend time and effort to study the Word of God will not be blessed with acquiring His new wine.  “But those who have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; those who have brought it together shall drink it in My holy courts” (Isaiah 62:9, NKJV).

This wine is also related to celebrating in God’s holy courts of praise. I see this as the communion wine that represents the shed blood of Christ. In other words, this new wine represents the communion of true unity among the cluster or those who are truly in the body of Jesus Christ. “Thus says the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, ‘Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it:’ so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all” (Isaiah 65:8, NKJV). The cluster represents true unity among God’s people. But it is always destroyed by another kind of wine – by what is deceptively false.

 The other kind of wine, called “yayin,” is related to drunkenness and deception. “Wine (yayin) is a mocker, strong drink is a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise” (Proverbs 20:1,NKJV, parenthesis mine). There are ministries and ministers who once had the new wine, who started out and walked in the uncompromising truth of God. But at some point they began to receive and then cling to what is false, to an intoxicating mixture of truth and error, that caused the glory of God’s wisdom to fade like a flower in their lives. “Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, Whose glorious beauty is a fading flower. But they also have erred through wine (yayin), and through intoxicating drink are out of the way; The priest and the prophet have erred through intoxicating drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they are out of the way through intoxicating drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment” (Isaiah 28:1,7, NKJV, parenthesis mine).

The words “intoxicating drink” comes from the Hebrew word “shaker.” It means to be “fully satisfied with a stimulating or intoxicating influence” which is a “sedative for those who are dying and bitter” (CWSD 7941). Beauty in Scripture symbolizes God’s wisdom. Mixture, that causes drunkenness, destroys His wisdom. This explains why the priests who ministered to God in the tabernacle were forbidden to drink “yayin” or “shakar.” Therefore, those who partake of mixture, an intoxicating drink, will never have the beauty of the Lord as a reality in their lives. We have all seen beautiful looking men and women who have had their natural beauty ruined when they became drunkards. The same holds true with the Spiritual beauty of God’s wisdom. When the new wine of truth is mixed with error, which is a compromise with deception, this mixture produces a clash of pressure between opposing views that will cause a wineskin to be destroyed. The new wine of truth will then be lost and the old wineskin brought to ruin. Thus a wineskin that is not willing to comply with God’s renewing process will lose the beauty of His wisdom and fade like the flower of Ephraim. “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. The old skins would burst from the pressure, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins. That way both the wine and the wineskins are preserved” (Matthew 9:17, NLT).

 We as God’s people need to become honest and teachable. We must allow the Holy Spirit to instruct us not only about the issue of being drunk in the spirit but more so on any error or false teaching we may hold. God is constantly refining His people to free us from any unwanted sediment in our spiritual understanding because this sediment is the underlying cause for compromise, confusion and deception. When “new wine” is not shared or used, but instead held on to and stored away, it becomes fermented and ends up as “yayin” wine. The same holds true for Christians who receive the living water of God’s Word. Many do not share God’s Word with those who are thirsty, and only keep it for their own self-centered use, using it as a means to claim promises and blessings thus consuming it upon their own lusts. “For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns — broken cisterns that can hold no water” (Jeremiah 2:13 NKJV).

It’s Time to Awake O Sleeper!

God always warns the body of Christ when the devil is planning something against us. In this era, He is sounding an alarm to warn us of a coming move of the enemy that will target lukewarm, worldly and carnal Christians. Recently … the Lord gave this vision.

In the vision there was a dark, foreboding sky as if a storm were brewing …this represented trouble on the horizon. The enemy was building momentum to strike… then there were vultures circling the earth.

Vultures are scavengers that are stealthy in stalking their prey. They have a keen sense for knowing when an animal is weak, sick and unhealthy; they can smell the stench of disease and death. After vultures attack, they ravage their prey until only the carcass is left. In the vision, vultures represented demonic spirits whose assignment was defeat and destruction.

As the vision continued… the vultures were circling over the body of Christ, specifically targeting lukewarm, worldly and carnal Christians. They were searching for Christians who refused to repent of the things of this world, who were not fully surrendered to God and who were spiritually weak. The Lord made it clear that the agenda of Satan in this hour is to bring destruction to the body of Christ by attacking Christians who can’t tear themselves away from the things of this world.

In this vision, before the vultures swooped to attack, they defecated on their prey. This put their victims in a spiritual stupor, causing the lukewarm, worldly and carnal to think they were spiritually solid when they were not. Their hearts became hardened to truth whenever spoken. The final analysis of the spiritual stupor was that they became even more vulnerable to the enemy’s attack, resulting in an already weakened spiritual state becoming weaker still.

Oh the magnitude of God’s mercy…. Oh, how He loves His children… how He wants to protect those in a weakened spiritual state! Oh, how good God is to warn us of the enemy’s plans against the body of Christ.

Brothers and sisters, it is time to wake up! Heed this prophetic warning! The only antidote for lukewarm, worldly and carnal living is repentance.

There is no middle ground in serving Jesus. It’s all or nothing. Run into the arms of your merciful Savior; fall on your knees at the throne of grace and take the enemy’s target off your back!
