WHAT IF  

America were the largest of the ’10 missing tribes’

and the Antichrist was its leader

and he was working, behind the scenes w/ others to accomplish the Psalms 83 war* against the modern nation of ‘Israel’?

And what if,

in the midst of that attack,

his (personal, secret) allies attacked his homeland–(the Ezekiel 38 war**)?

Is it possible that this would happen?:

‘But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.’  (Daniel 11:44)

Is it possible that a narcissistic man, with power over a nuclear arsenal, who had been betrayed . . . might use those nukes to retaliate?

And what if the base of his enemies’ joint operation was in . . . Syria?  Could this be the result?

‘The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.’  (Isaiah 17:1)

By the way, I recently heard that Russia and China ARE moving into Syria to help them . . . (Gog and Gomer).

As the ‘fourth beast’ world empire rises, we will probably see several nations in the news:

  1. Russia–having invaded South Ossetia, Georgia, and Abkhazia
  2. United Kingdom/Great Britain–something related to the Olympics?
  3. India–unknown reason

If this scenario is correct, the Mark of the Beast could be rolled out soon.  After the Antichrist  ‘goes forth with great fury to destroy and utterly make away many’, the next thing he does is:

‘And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain . . . ‘  (Daniel 11:45)

This is where Revelation 13 picks up the story, and his three and a half year reign begins, from Jerusalem.

One more thing . . . the attack on his homeland (that presumably destroys Washington DC–and I believe also includes the destruction of NYC  [see Revelation 18]) would be what the Bible calls the ‘head’ that was ‘wounded to death’ and healed.

‘And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.’  (Revelation 13:3)

The destruction would not be complete however, because God WILL be glorified amongst the heathen, because of his response to the attack:

‘there shall be a great shaking in the land . . . and all the men that [are] upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.  And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man’s sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that [are] with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I [am] the LORD.’  (Ezekiel 38:19-23)

(All of this is a matter of opinion and speculation.   Consider it prayerfully.   It could be all wrong, or partly wrong.  My belief, until now, has been that the Ezekiel 38 war would not take place until the end of the Tribulation.  I see this as an alternate possibility.)

*Psalm 83 players:

  • Edom = Palestinians and Southern Jordanians
  • Ishmaelites = Saudis, Arabs
  • Moab = Palestinians and Central Jordanians
  • Hagarenes = Egyptians
  • Gebal = Hezbollah, Lebanese
  • Ammon = Palestinians
  • Amalek = Arabs of Sinai Penninsula
  • Philistines = Hamas of Gaza Strip
  • Tyre = Hezbollah, Southern Lebanese
  • Assur = Syrians and Northern Iraquis

**Ezekiel 38 players:

From the North:

  • Magog = Russia
  • Meshech, Tubal, Gomer, Togarmah = Turkey

Gog = a man, or spirit/principality, that has authority over Russia and Turkey.  He will be at the head of this coalition.

From the East:

  • Persia = Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan

From the South:

  • Ethiopia = Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan

From the Southwest:

  • Libya

Spectators?:

Sheba, Dedan, Tarshish = ?

It was brought to my attention, that some people who believe in the preTribulation Rapture believe that the ‘falling away’ is really a ‘catching away’.  Apparently they have a different interpretation of this verse:

‘Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;’  (2 Thessalonians 2:3)

(A simple check on the meaning of this term would show that the Greek word is ‘apostasia’.  This means: a falling away, defection, or apostasy.  Even the corrupt Bible versions got this one right, translating it as rebellion, apostasy, or falling away.)

Nevertheless, for those who fail to do their own Bible reading and/or fact checking . . . do you realize what that implies? It implies that anyone who believes this, as long as they are alive, can not believe that anyone who rises to power is actually The Antichrist (because they believe they’ll be Raptured before that happens, right?).

So, what’s going to happen when someone

‘opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God’? (2 Thessalonians 2:4)

We know that God is going to send a strong delusion to those who don’t love the truth (2 Thess. 2:11) . . . and we know that ‘Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.’ (2 Cor. 11:14)  (Also, I have reason to believe that The Tribulation may not be seven years, and will not begin with a seven year peace treaty.) . . .

The churches are already moving to unite with one another, with Catholicism, with Islam, with Eastern occult religions such as yoga, etc. Many have been ‘prophesying’ of a ‘great awakening‘ or a ‘great end-times revival‘ (which isn’t Scriptural!) . . .

We know that The Antichrist’s coming ‘is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders‘ (2 Thess. 2:9) that ‘his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness‘ (2 Cor. 11:15), that ‘there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matthew 24:24). . .

Besides the typical (false) healing ministries by such false apostles as Benny Hinn, we have abominations like the Todd Bentley fiasco, and churches where angels, ‘gold dust’, jewels, and oil are supposedly appearing. People are having dreams, believing that Jesus is appearing to them–but with prayer for discernment, and comparison to God’s Word, these prove to be false. . .

If they ALREADY can’t discern that these things are not of God . . . that they fulfill Jesus’ warnings of end-times deception . . . then just who are they going to suppose that fellow sitting in God’s temple is? (And what new, deceptive teachings or ‘discoveries’ might further prepare the way for him?)

 

I may be wrong, but when I look at how many people missed the coming of the Messiah (only two were waiting and watching, and recognized Him after He was born) . . . and how the prophecies about Him were fulfilled in ways they did not expect . . . I suspect that The Antichrist could be among us for quite awhile, with very few people recognizing who he is. It MAY even be that we won’t know, unless God reveals it to us.

 

One other thing that we shouldn’t overlook, is that Satan has to have some plan for quieting, confusing, or explaining away the Scriptures that would allow people to recognize Him. As fast as things are unfolding, it does appear that Bibles may still be obtainable when he comes. Even if they weren’t, enough people remember certain things to be able to identify him at some point.

Certainly marginalizing or getting rid of believers would solve some of that problem–but he wants to appear to be a ‘good guy’, so he’d need to appear to have clean hands in the matter. And, even if he were rid of all Christians, there are bound to be some people who are currently ‘on the fence’ that would remember things they’ve been told, who could ‘out’ him then.

It seems to me that the MOST effective strategy would be to paint a completely different picture–of him, and of how things will happen–so that people will be unaware as it happens right under their noses.

And indeed, I strongly suspect this is already happening–with the help of the false picture that is being presented in the churches of a preTribulation Rapture, and a great end-times revival accompanied by signs and wonders.

READ YOUR BIBLE and PRAY that God will help you understand it and show you the truth, lest you also be deceived!!

Interestingly, Jordan seems to be the only Middle Eastern nation that the Antichrist spares from his conquests.  (See Daniel 11:41) The timing of this passage from Isaiah, is at the return of Christ, at the end of the Tribulation.

‘Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.  For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.   [See Rev. 6:15-17, 19:11-21]

 

Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. [See Ezekiel 39:11-15]

 

And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling [fig] from the fig tree.  [See Rev. 6:12-17, 12:7-9]

 

For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.  The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea (Edom aka Jordan).  And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

For [it is] the day of the LORD’S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.  And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.  It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.  [See Rev. 19:20]

 

But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.  They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none [shall be] there, and all her princes shall be nothing.  And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, [and] a court for owls.  The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.  There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate. [See Malachi 1:1-5]

 

Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.  And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.’  (Isaiah 34:1-17)

 

The Lord knew the future, from the beginning.  Perhaps this is why He said

‘As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.’  (Romans 9:13)

Putting together different things I have read, it appears that mankind is near completing 6,000 years on the Earth, from the time of Adam and Eve.  Scripture tells us that:

‘And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.’  (Genesis 6:3)

It is possible that these ‘years’ are Jubilee years.  Every Jubilee cycle encompassed 50 years.  50 x 120 = 6,000

We also know that:

‘. . . one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.’  (2 Peter 3:8)

We also know that when Jesus returns, at the end of the Great Tribulation, He will begin His 1,000 year (millennial)  reign.  (See Rev. 20:4-6)

This certainly looks like a ‘week’ of  days that each equal one thousand years.  I see a clear pattern here, that is reflected in man’s seven day week.

‘Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings.’  (Leviticus 23:3)

It seems to me that the weekly Sabbath is a foreshadowing . . . a prophetic picture . . . of God’s week in relation to man.  When Jesus returns, the Earth’s seventh day Sabbath will begin.

 

Isaiah 66:15-24 tells of the time at the end of the Tribulation and the beginning of Christ’s millennial reign:

For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.  For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.  They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.  For I [know] their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory. [see Rev. 16:16, 19:11-21]

 

And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, [to] Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, [to] Tubal, and Javan, [to] the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.  [see Matt. 24:14]

 

And they shall bring all your brethren [for] an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.  [see Jer. 30:1-10, 46:27-28]

 

And I will also take of them for priests [and] for Levites, saith the LORD.  [see Rev. 20:4-6]

 

For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain.  And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.  [see Rev. 21:1-8, 22:1-21]

 

And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.’  [see Isaiah 34:9-10, Rev. 14:9-11, 19:20, 20:10-15]

Throughout the entire seven thousand years of this age, mankind will keep the Sabbath, as a day to worship the Lord.

From the Roman Catholic ‘Easter Proclamation’ Canto (song)

in Latin, of course

‘You are the morning star that never sets

Find this flame still burning

replace Christ

you morning star

who came back from hell

and shed this new light on all mankind

your star who lives and reigns forever and ever’

 

Replace Christ?  Obviously Christ can’t replace Himself . . . so who is this talking about?   Here is where the issue of different Bible versions becomes important, because the newer Bible versions dovetail nicely with the  Catholic Church’s invocation of the Antichrist.

Isaiah 14:12 is translated . . .

(KJV)  ‘How art thou fallen from heaven, o Lucifer, son of the morning! . . . ‘

(NIV)  ‘How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! . . .’

Maybe no big deal . . . but, stay with me.  Lucifer = Jesus in the NIV.

By changing the verse that identifies Satan (Lucifer) . . . by inserting, instead, a title that is used for Jesus*,  the NIV translators made Jesus appear to be the same ‘person’ as Lucifer.  In other words, Lucifer is claiming Jesus’ title as the Morning Star.  Instead of Isaiah 14:12 saying ‘Lucifer’, where it is clearly describing Satan, the new translations give him Jesus’ title  (Morning Star) instead.

*Verses that prove ‘morning star’ is as a title that belongs to Jesus:

‘ . . . as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.’ (2 Peter 1:19)

‘I will also give him the morning star.’  (Rev. 2:28)

‘”I, Jesus . . . I am the Root and Offspring of David, and the bright Morning  Star.”‘  (Rev 22:16)

 

Let’s look at that Canto one more time:

‘You are the morning star that never sets

Find this flame still burning

replace Christ

you morning star

who came back from hell

and shed this new light on all mankind

your star who lives and reigns forever and ever’

 

The Bible tells us who they are really singing to:

‘And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men.  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions.   And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings [was] as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.   And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power [was] to hurt men five months.

And they had a king over them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.’  (Revelation 9:1-11)

 

The angel of the bottomless pit, the coming Antichrist . . .

‘ . . . replace Christ

you morning star

who came back from hell . . . ‘

 

‘[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,’  (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

 

‘ . . . and shed this new light on all mankind

your star who lives and reigns forever and ever’

 

‘And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.’  (2 Corinthians 11:14)

 

The corrupted Bible versions are no accident.  It’s all part of the plan.

‘ . . . and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.'(Matthew 24:24)

‘Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven . . . ‘  (Matthew 5:19)

Jesus predicted that someday a Christian (or Christians) would break, and teach others to break, one of the commandments.  God gave us ten commandments.  Take away one, and you have nine left.  This is exactly what is being promoted by some:  that we now have only nine commandments to follow.  Though they are undoubtedly men of keen intellect, who are skilled at debate, they are doing exactly what Jesus foresaw and warned us not to do.

Sometimes the logic of God defies the logic of men.

‘For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.’  (Isaiah 55:9)

 

‘But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;’  (1 Corinthians 1:27)

 

For whatever reason, God chose not to spell out in His Word that we are still expected to keep the Sabbath.  We can involve ourselves in lengthy debates, based on the logic and reasoning of men, but regardless of who is determined the winner of the debate, such intellectual exercises can never trump the revelation of the Holy Spirit, through the Word of God.

‘But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.’  (John 14:26)

 

‘But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you . . . ‘  (1 John 2:27)

 

There is only one Holy Spirit, which leads us into truth.  If Christians are diametrically opposed on an issue, it is an indication either that someone neglected to pray for wisdom and discernment, or that they are basing their understanding only in part on what is revealed to them by the Lord, through His Word.

This is a time of learning, of training, and of sharpening our swords.  If you have been promoting something based on your own logic and understanding, or based on the teaching of other men, rather than what God’s Spirit has revealed to you through His Word, then it’s time to repent.

Matthew 5:19 clarifies that it is indeed and ‘in house’ matter.  Whoever has been breaking a commandment and teaching others to do so, has not lost their salvation.  But it’s still serious.

‘My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.’  (James 3:1)

 

‘Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven . . . ‘  (Matthew 5:19)

 

This is an opportunity to learn to be led by the Spirit, and to put our trust in God 100%–not in our own logic, not in our own understanding, not in the opinions of wise men.  We are EACH to read the Word and pray that God would give us understanding.  We are EACH accountable to be obedient to what God reveals to us.  His grace will cover the rest.

READ CAREFULLY!

‘Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.’  (Jesus, Matthew 7:14)

two paragraphs later . . .

‘MANY will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.’  (Jesus, Matthew 7:22-23)

Same person speaking both times, so we ARE ‘comparing apples with apples’.  Jesus says FEW will find the way which leads to life and MANY will be told ‘I never knew you: depart from me’.

In other words, MORE people who profess Jesus as Lord WILL BE TURNED AWAY than accepted!!  MORE people who think they are Christians are NOT, than are!  Most people who think they are Christians . . . aren’t!

How can you be sure that YOU aren’t mistaken?  Jesus is the gate, no question, but beyond that gate is a NARROW path.  If you aren’t walking on a narrow path, there’s a problem.

If you have lots of ‘Christian’ fellowship on your path . . . lots of people going the same way . . . with little opposition . . . you are on the BROAD path.  You took a wrong turn somewhere–or maybe you missed the gate.  Maybe you went through the ‘another Jesus’ gate by mistake . . .

Who does Jesus say He will accept into His kingdom, on that day?

‘Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but HE THAT DOETH THE WILL OF MY FATHER which is in heaven.’  (Jesus, Matthew 7:21)

 

‘ . . .  if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.‘  (Jesus, Matthew 19:17)

 

‘Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.‘  (Jesus, Matthew 5:17-21)

 

How can your righteousness exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees?  Keep the commandments.  And keep them outwardly AND inwardly.

‘ . . . for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.’  (1 Samuel 16:7)

The Kabbalah, Gematria, and Sacred Geometry are all part of the ‘Mystery Babylon’ occult/hidden knowledge.  The ‘god’ of the occult traditions is Lucifer. So why in the world is the tetragrammaton (YHWH or YHVH) a common symbol in these traditions?  Why is the tetragrammaton spelled out on a Tarot card?  Isn’t this the name of God?  Or, perhaps the question should be . . . what ‘god’s’ name IS this?

Kabbalah is also known a ‘Jewish mysticism’.  It is a Jewish pagan religion, the ‘god’ of which is Lucifer.  Judaism is not, as most Christians suppose, a religion based on a pure adherence to the Old Testament.  No–Judaism is a religion based on rabbinic interpretation of the Old Testament.  This rabbinic interpretation is contained in the Mishnah and the Talmud.  You don’t have to be a genius to read a bit of the Talmud and see it is ‘the Old Testament according to Satan’.

Even in Jesus’ day, this was so.  Jesus didn’t wrangle with, and defy, the Scribes and Pharisees because they were very devout about keeping the Old Testament laws.  No!  They had substituted their OWN (Satanically inspired) teachings and traditions for the Word of God.  (In fact, if you read a bit of the Koran and compare it to the Babylonian (Jewish) Talmud, you will recognize that they have the same author, and say very similar things.)

It seems that Jesus made a deliberate point of repeatedly defying the Pharisees, whenever THEIR laws contradicted HIS law.  He also, PLAINLY, called them ‘The Synagogue of Satan’.  Most people think He was speaking figuratively, but in fact, He was being quite literal.  The Scribes and Pharisees served a different ‘god’:  Lucifer.  Take a little time to explore Jesus’ interactions with the Pharisees, and you will see that the Scripture confirms what I’m saying.

So, back to today . . .

Why the sudden emphasis on returning to our Hebrew roots?  Why the push towards the authority and interpretations of Jewish Rabbis?  Why the insistence on learning the ‘real’ names of God?

We know from the Scriptures, that God is looking for people who will follow Him with all their HEARTS, who will worship Him in SPIRIT and TRUTH.  God discerns the intents of our HEARTS.

On the other hand, you don’t have to look very far into any practice of the occult, to see that it is very precise . . . very ritualistic . . . very dogmatic in exactly WHAT is said and done, WHEN it is said and done, and HOW it is said and done.  This is the very same spirit that I discern is at work behind the ‘Sacred Name’ movement.

If you believe that WHAT we call God is an issue, I would urge you to pray . . . do your own research . . . and let HIM show you what He wants you to call Him.
