So many ‘Christians’ (using modern Bible translations) take false security from the following verses, thinking they say that Christians CAN’T be deceived. Yet what the KJV says is very different–the KJV shows THEY will be the target!   It does NOT say they can’t be deceived.

Compare:

NIV: ‘For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles TO deceive the elect–if that were possible.’ (Mark 13:22)

vs.

KJV: ‘For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, To seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.’ (Mark 13:22)

 

and

 

NIV: ‘For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.’ (Matthew 24:24)

vs.

KJV: ‘For 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)

 

One must understand that, in the KJV, when words are in brackets they were ADDED for clarity of understanding.  But what added clarity in the 1700’s might not be as helpful today.  It is absolutely permissible to remove those words.

 

Bottom line:

Contrast the clearly misleading translation of the NIV . . .

‘ . . . to deceive the elect– if that were possible.’  (The implication being that it is not possible.)

with the WARNING in the KJV

KJV message: ‘ . . . TO seduce, if possible, even the elect . . . ‘, ‘ . . . insomuch that, if possible, they shall deceive the very elect.’

 

You CAN be deceived! As a friend said

‘If you think you can’t be deceived, you’re deceived already.’

Sadly, many of us have recently come to realize that even many of the renowned men of Christendom were wrong in some of their doctrines.  Worse–many of the Bible commentators were too!  Because their writings and study guides are also used in seminaries, this has led to a multitude of pastors believing false doctrines and promoting them to their congregations.  Today, the deception is widespread.

Christians MUST come to understand that it is not God’s will for them to be submitting to a man (or men) for all their spiritual learning.  They must learn to pray that HE will teach them, and read the Word for themselves.  It is not a matter of intelligence.  The Holy Spirit will teach you in a way that you will understand.   (Why do you suppose the Catholic ‘church’ went to such great lengths to keep Bibles out of the hands of the common man?  Now Satan works more subtly, by projecting verses on the overhead so that no one need bother to open their own Bible.)

This promise is for ALL true Christians:

‘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: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.’  (1 John 2:27)

Which brings us to an important point.  There are a couple of reasons that many ‘Christians’ don’t find themselves understanding God’s Word.

1.  Many people who say they are Christians are not even Christians.  REPENTANCE is the necessary first step of salvation.  One of the false doctrines that has been promoted for the past few decades, is that all you need to do is ‘believe’ in Jesus. ‘God hates the sin, but not the sinner’ . . .  ‘just come as you are’, sinners are told.   This is a twisting of Scripture and a misrepresentation of the gospel.  True conversion begins with godly sorrow that leads to repentance.  THEN God forgives, because of Jesus’ death on our behalf.  But where there is no apology . . . no acknowledgement of one’s sins . . . there can be no forgiveness.  Without forgiveness, there is no NEW HEART given . . . no Holy Spirit received.  Although CONVINCED, such people are not converted.  Because they are not converted, and have not received the Holy Spirit,  the Scriptures above DO NOT apply to them, but this verse DOES:

‘But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.’  (1 Cor. 2:14)

So it IS true–many church goers, who BELIEVE they are Christians (but aren’t fully CONVERTED), do not understand the Bible.

2.  Newer Bible versions are based on corrupted manuscripts, translated by the Vatican and/or by occultists.  God’s Word is His testimony.  To change wording and intent when translating, is to add error to His testimony, rendering it invalid.  From what I have learned, the Authorized Version of the King James Bible is the best, most accurate rendering of God’s Word.  When I read this translation, there is a spiritual anointing present that I do not find with other versions.

Jesus IS the Word.  It is not surprising that, by using a similar (but not the same) ‘Word’, the churches would have invented ‘another Jesus’.  But that’s exactly the situation we have today:  another ‘Word’, another ‘Jesus’, and another ‘gospel’ . . . and ‘churches’ full of believers in this (other) Jesus and (other) gospel that are convinced they are real Christians.If you don’t believe me, look at their fruit–because by their fruit you will know them.  (Matthew 7:15-23, Galatians 5:19-24)

The bottom line is this:

  • Become a TRUE, converted Christian, by repenting of your sins and confessing them to God AND believing in Jesus’ death on your behalf.
  • Live a life of obedience to His commandments, as He instructed us.  (Matt. 19:17, John 14:15, 15:10, 1 John 2:3, 5:3, Rev. 12:17, 14:12)
  • Pray often for wisdom.  (James 1:5)
  • Pray for understanding and read His Word.

Bad Fruit

STOP SINNING!!  Stop making excuses for why you can’t stop.  If you knew you only had days to live, and that you were facing the fires of hell, you’d find a way.  The false gospel the ‘churches’ are preaching has you lulled into complacency, thinking that your position is secure, no matter what you do–that you can never fall.  That may be what your pastor teaches, and what the majority in your church believe, but it is not what the Word of God says.  Need I remind you that

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

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)

MANY who think they are His, who BELIEVE in Him, who are faithful in their churches, will plead with Him on that day, to let them into His kingdom.  But He will condemn them for ‘working iniquity’!  So much for your ‘all you need to do is believe’ doctrine, and your ‘it’s all under the blood’ doctrine, and your ‘ALL sins past, present, and FUTURE are forgiven’ doctrine.  (If these doctrines were true, then why did Jesus condemn these people?  They believed in Him, and were trusting in Him, and served Him, while they lived sinfully–but He said He never knew them.  Why?)  These doctrines are lies that were conceived in the pit of hell.  Salvation requires EFFORT and DEDICATION on your part.

‘ . . . but he that ENDURETH TO THE END shall be* saved.’  (Jesus, Matthew 10:22)

(* SHALL BE, not ‘is’)

‘STRIVE to enter in at the strait gate: for MANY, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.’  (Jesus, Luke 13:24)

‘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 5:20)

‘And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?’  (1 Peter 4:18)

‘Wherefore the rather, brethren, GIVE DILIGENCE TO MAKE YOUR CALLING AND ELECTION SURE: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:’  (2 Peter 1:10)

‘. . . WORK OUT your own salvation with fear and trembling.’  (Philippians 2:12)

‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.’  (Galatians 6:7-8)

(Notice this verse is in the New Testament, so you can’t claim it doesn’t apply now.)

‘Know ye not that THE UNRIGHTEOUS SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? BE NOT DECEIVED: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.’  (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

If you are trusting in those doctrines (‘all you need to do is believe’,  ‘it’s all under the blood’, and  ‘ALL sins past, present, and FUTURE are forgiven’), you are basing your trust in the word of men–but you’d better start reading the Word of God!  If you ‘sin every day’, then perhaps you never really repented to begin with.  If you did, I’d suggest you take a good look at how you’ve lived since then.  Maybe it’s time to hit your knees and repent again.  The Scriptures are CLEAR:

‘Follow peace with all [men], and HOLINESS, without which no man shall see the Lord:’  (Hebrews 12:14)

and

‘ . . .  Let EVERY ONE that nameth the name of Christ DEPART FROM INIQUITY.’  (2 Timothy 2:19)

TODAY!!  Not some vague day in the future.  You know that if you turn from wickedness to do righteousness, and place your faith in Christ, your past sins are forgotten.  But did you know that if you turn from righteousness to do wickedness again, your past RIGHTEOUSNESS is forgotten?  You may say ‘I put my faith in Jesus’.  But the Word says that faith without works is dead!  If your faith in Jesus is a live faith, you will not produce works of wickedness!

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every GOOD tree bringeth forth GOOD fruit; but a CORRUPT tree bringeth forth EVIL fruit. A good tree CANNOT bring forth evil fruit, NEITHER [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

(‘Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. . .’ (2 Corinthians 13:5))

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit IS HEWN DOWN, AND CAST INTO THE FIRE. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.’  (Jesus, Matthew 7:16-20)

Examine yourself!! If you are producing evil fruit, you are NOT a good tree . . . no matter what you believe, and no matter what you’ve been told!!  Who are  you going to believe?

Yourself?  (‘The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?’  (Jeremiah 17:9))

Your pastor?  ( ‘ . . . let God be true, but every man a liar . . . ‘  (Romans 3:4))

Or the words of the one you say is your Lord?  (‘A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.’  (Jesus, Matthew 7:18))

If you have come to the painful conclusion that you are indeed bearing bad fruit . . . that another spirit is working in you, than the Holy Spirit (because it is the spirit/Spirit working in you that bears fruit after its own kind) . . . there is a remedy for that: REPENT!  The condemnation and sorrow you feel is called ‘Godly sorrow’ . . . the ‘conviction of the Holy Spirit’ . . . and it will produce a harvest of righteousness . . . IF you will submit to it.

This is NOT a ‘thus saith the Lord’ . . . this is an opinion about something that might be set to occur that could potentially be VERY devastating for many ‘Christians’ who have been led to believe certain things . . .

We live in a society that has become so accustomed to the pretenders on television, that we view it more as a source of news and truth, than as the propaganda mouthpiece that it is.  Television speaks what the wealthy and powerful want told, in a way that the populace wants to hear it.  Television is the medium, to ensure that the message of the powers that be, is accepted by those they are seeking to dominate and control.

We live in a time of great technological advancements.  Although we know that technology makes possible great signs, wonders, and illusions . . . how many of us don’t believe what we see with our own eyes?

We have become conditioned to believe that there are aliens . . . or someone . . . ‘out there’.  Theories abound.

We are such techno geeks that if someone were to tell us that there were not adequate words for the Bible prophets of old to describe things . . . that if they could explain things in terms of today’s technology . . . most ‘Christians’ would believe it.  (Alex Jones recently reinterpreted Ezekiel’s vision of God to include a circular space craft!)

We know that ‘angel’ means ‘messenger’.  With all of the rewritten, reinterpreted Bibles out there, based on corrupted manuscripts, many people believe that we cannot be too dogmatic in our understanding of God’s Word.  They believe we should be liberal in our interpretations.  I believe the strategy to bring about this change of attitude towards God Word, was planned by our adversary a long time ago.

Now, with all of this in mind, let me put forth a potential ‘perfect storm’ of deception that may be targeted at believers . . . please try to hear me out, even if I say some things you don’t agree with.  Please pray whether any or all of the things I say may be true.

I can’t say for sure that the following scenario is going to happen . . . all I’m trying to point out is that we seem to have been prepared for such a scenario to go off pretty successfully, if it does happen to be something our adversary has planned.

Jesus told us certain things that would happen at His return.  (Please read Matthew 24 in the King James version to see for yourself SPECIFICALLY what Jesus said.)

Because people have been conditioned to believe in a loose, liberal interpretation of God’s Word, let me show you what most of today’s ‘Christians’ could be convinced is a fulfillment of Scripture:

  • tribulation (could be misinterpreted as earthquakes, wars, etc.)
  • then the sun will be darkened (could be misinterpreted as an eclipse)
  • and the moon will not give her light (could be misinterpreted as an eclipse)
  • and the stars will fall from heaven (could be misinterpreted as a meteor shower)
  • And THEN you will see Him (can be simulated by technology)
  • coming with clouds (could be misinterpreted as literal clouds)
  • and you will HEAR the sound of a great trumpet (can be simulated by technology)
  • and the angels will come to gather you (fallen angels, pretending to be aliens/’messengers’, can make an appearance [real or staged] and invite people to come with them)

I believe the preTribulation Rapture doctrine is a set up.  It definitely isn’t Scriptural.  But what would it be the best set up FOR (besides a great falling away)?  I believe it is a perfect set up for a false Rapture.

There WILL be some event, at the END of the Tribulation (see verses 29 and 21), that causes the sun to be darkened, the moon to appear blood red, and stars to fall from the sky SIMULTANEOUSLY, I believe.  Then, you will see the sign of the Son of man, and you will see Jesus Himself, encompassed by the host of heaven (‘clouds’).

The seventh angel will sound his trumpet and angels will come and gather the people of God from the face of the Earth, the heavens, the sea, and the grave. There will be no flying saucers involved.  There will be no technology involved.  You will not stand in line.  You will not need a ticket.  Wherever you are, the angels will come and find you. None of His children, that have endured, will be left behind. Every eye will see Him at His return, AFTER the three and a half year reign of the Antichrist.

If you took the time to prayerfully read Matthew 24 in the KJV for yourself, then you should see the difference between what Jesus said WOULD occur, and what people may be led to mistakenly believe.

Do not let people reinterpret God’s Word for you and tell you it is vague, or that certain words may mean something else.  Find out for yourself.  Read the passages in a KJV and look up the words in a Strong’s Concordance/Hebrew-Greek dictionary, to find their meanings.  (Ezekiel’s vision of God, for example, was NOT a vision of a flying saucer!)

There are a number of reasons I’m sharing this possible scenario.  Among them:

  • Chemtrails that create a virtual plasma screen above the earth (so you can see ‘Jesus’ and His ‘angels’)
  • Technology that allows holographic images to be projected (so you can see ‘Jesus’ and His ‘angels’)
  • Technology that can produce voices in your head (so you can hear the sound of a great trumpet, and the voice of ‘Jesus’)
  • Many strange CLOUD formations recently, that may be masking some type of space crafts  (because of the loose interpretation that He will be coming ‘with clouds’)
  • The media obsession with aliens, fallen angels, gods, etc. that is preparing people to accept them
  • The messages being (demonically) channeled to people by ‘ascended masters’, ‘aliens’,  and ‘angels’

But, most importantly, because I don’t believe that Jesus wasted any words.  He gave a warning, to those of us living in the end times.  It too, is found in Matthew 24, and comes immediately before His description of the (real) Rapture, that comes at the end of the Tribulation.  His words seem to predict some kind of event . . .

‘Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; GO NOT FORTH: behold, [he is] in the secret chambers; BELIEVE [IT] NOT . For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.’  (Matthew 24:26-28)

When this invitation comes–and it will, even if it’s not the scenario I put forth–DO NOT ACCEPT IT!  Understand: those who accept this invitation WILL DIE.  Theirs will be the carcasses, where the eagles gather!

Read and remember Matthew 24.  It could save your life!!

The Gospel, According to Satan

If the Lord has been opening your eyes to how Satan has been working for the last hundred years or so, then you’re probably familiar with his marketing campaign, because it hasn’t changed much since . . . oh . . . the Garden of Eden.

What he keeps promising is this: immortality and that you’ll be a god.  You’ll also recognize his slogan: ‘do as thou wilt’ (which has been repackaged and reworded from time to time).

What I find disturbing, is that he has managed to peddle his wares under the guise of ‘Christianity’.  He has a targeted marketing campaign, for people who don’t care for the image of the bad guy with the pitchfork and horns.  This particular ad campaign repackages things with an appearance of godliness, and some out-of-context Bible verses, but ultimately the product is the same.

Wrapped in the doctrines of demons, his product seems guaranteed to deliver!

And what are those doctrines of demons?

Immortality:

  • All you have to do to be saved is believe in Jesus

You’ll be a God:

  • There are no rules to abide by (because that would be ‘putting yourself under the law’)
  • Nothing is required of you (because that would be justification by works)
  • You have immunity from punishment (because once you’re saved, you’re always saved)
  • You have freedom in Christ (because all things are lawful for you)

‘Do as thou wilt’!!

If God is allowing this as a means of separating the wheat from the tares, then those who wanted to be gods, be immortal, and do as they please, will get what they deserve–because God is not mocked!!  But if you are a person who sincerely DOES want to be a Christian, and serve God . . . then you need to understand that what you ‘bought’ is a counterfeit.

The most important thing to know, is that no one comes to God with their head held high.  We approach God on bended knee, humbled and ashamed by the weight of our sin.  Our God is a HOLY God, and every one of us has (at the very least) defied him; abused ourselves, others, or the beautiful world He created; and failed to give Him the respect, honor, and thanksgiving He deserves.  As His creation, we have brought Him shame and dishonor.  We have disappointed Him, and spit in His face.  Repentance is where we begin.

Insert HERE:  believing Jesus died for your sins; saved by grace, through faith; asking Jesus into your heart; and confessing Him as Savior and Lord.

Then, go forth and:  ‘sin no more’; ‘be baptized . . . for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost’; ‘keep the commandments’; forgive, that you may be forgiven; judge yourself; repent if you sin (but do your best to ‘sin not’); ‘love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might’; ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’; ‘walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit’; ‘pray without ceasing’; ‘be sober, be vigilant’; ‘resist the devil, and he will flee from you’; ‘seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness’: ‘earnestly contend for the faith’; ‘be ye holy’; and ‘go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost’.

People today are running to and fro in search of knowledge, gathering to themselves teachers that say what their itching ears want to hear.  It wouldn’t surprise me if nearly all of us are doing that–after all, we ARE curious.  It seems that even those who, with all their hearts want to serve God, seem to think they are lacking some revelation that will make it all come together for them.  And, of course, most of us are interested in understanding the interpretations of end-times prophecies.  Nowadays there is no shortage of people who are speaking with authority, claiming to share their expertise in understanding the deeper things of God, and the revelations they have received.  When all of these factors converge . . . we have the conditions necessary for many to be led away from the faith.

There are many different ‘roads to ruin’, but here I’d like to address a common thread that runs through a few of them.  It is the belief that Scripture contains much deeper meaning, that only a few have discovered.

Now, not all those who promote these means of interpreting Scripture are going to come right out and say ‘I am one of the elect few who knows the deep hidden meaning of Scripture’ . . . but if you listen critically, it is there between the lines.  As they speak, what’s between the lines, yet subtly and continuously reinforced, is the idea that ‘I’m wiser than you.  I understand these things.  If you want to know the truth, you must follow me.  If you don’t see these things yourself, it’s because you don’t ‘have the eyes to see’ or ‘the ears to hear’.  However, I am here to enlighten you.  Follow me.’

There are various flavors to this today.  One is the Hebrew roots movement.  Others may be movements, or simply individuals who seem to have great insight.  They are seduced by their own great wisdom (sarcasm intended).  They have trained (perverted) their minds to see past the written word, past the literal interpretation, into the deeper allegorical/metaphorical/symbolic meaning.  Before long, they are seeing hidden meaning in everything, and their minds are so thoroughly twisted that they become unable to take things at face value.  The Scripture gives us a promise:

‘These [things] have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.   (He is speaking about false teachers–intellectual seduction)

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.’  1 John 2:26-27

God is no respecter of persons.  There is no ‘elite’ among the people of God.

‘But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.’  (Matthew 23:11)

It is God’s will that EACH of us should read and understand His Word for ourself.  It was written in plain language that is not difficult to understand.  What hinders many people, is the fact that the Scriptures cannot be understood without the help of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is a gift, from God to His people.  Each born again believer has the means to understand the Bible.  Unbelievers though, before they begin reading, must humble themselves before God and pray to Him that His Holy Spirit would help them understand it.

What follows is a passage that explains the roots of much mysticism and false teaching today:  The Kabbalah.

‘Literal Kabbalah Interpretations

 The Kabbalists, who believed themselves to be Orthodox Jews, believed that the Torah holds interpretations that are deciphered and accessible to the sages or prophets alone. The oral Torah of the sages is their esoteric interpretation of the written Torah. That interpretation relies on the Literal Kabbalah teachings, which involves the idea that every letter and space of the written Torah holds magical meanings and that there are layers of meaning within the written Torah.

“Most if not all Kabbalistic speculation and doctrine is concerned with the realm of the divine emanations or sefiroth, in which God’s creative power unfolds…two most important kinds of symbolism used by the Kabbalists to communicate their ideas. They speak of the attributes and of spheres of light ; but in the same context they speak also of divine names and the letters of which they are composed.” 22.

Kabbalists believe that unless one goes beyond the literal, or first layer of the written Torah, one has not really understood much of value.

“The word zohar means literally radiance. According to him [Hayim Vital], the radiance of the Torah’s divine light is reflected in the mysteries of this book. But when these mysteries are shrouded in the literal meaning, their light is darkened. The literal meaning is darkness, but the Kabbalistic meaning, the mystery, is the zohar that shines in every line of Scripture. This devaluation of the simple literal meaning is no invention of the later Kabbalists. It is clearly stressed in certain passages of the zohar itself.” 23.

Citing from passages of the Zohar, Nesta Webster states that once the Cabala initiates solved the magical significance of the Hebrew alphabet their students learned truths that they would never have known through the study of the written Word of God. One of these new revelations was that Noah was lamed for life.

“According to the Cabala, every letter in the scriptures contains a mystery only to be solved by the initiated.4. By means of this system of interpretation passages of the Old Testament are shown to bear meanings totally unapparent to the ordinary reader. Thus the Zohar explains that Noah was lamed for life by the bite of a lion whilst he was in the ark…5” 24.

Co-founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Kabbalist, S.L. McGregor Mathers explained in, Introduction to the Kabbalah, the significance of the Hebrew alphabet to the Kabbalist:

“…To Jewish mystics, every letter in the Hebrew alphabet was a channel to the life force of God and possessed of sacred meaning. Hebrew numbers were also represented by letters so that names and words had numerical values. Finding associations of words with the same value revealed a complex series of hidden meanings beneath the text of the Torah, the book of law attributed to Moses. In fact, the entire Torah can be considered to be a single long word spelling out one of the names of God. The significance of the name of God goes back to ancient Egypt where knowing the name of a god allowed one to gain power over that god.” 25.’

‘To Embrace Hebrew Roots: Part VIII  Literal Kabbalah: Gematria & Numerology’

We know that the occult is forbidden by God.  It is the ‘mystery’ in the mystery religions, the false teachings that all find their place in the ‘Whore of Babylon’–the end-time world religion.

There are many words that give indication that someone may be speaking of the occult, but not wanting to come out and admit it:  hidden, shrouded, mystery, esoteric, metaphor, symbolic, profound, deep, uninitiated, Kabbalah, Cabala, revelation, decipher, unveil, gnosis, knowledge, light, radiance, understanding, wisdom, sage, mystic, enlightened, initiate, etc.

Learn these words and take notice of them when they are used.  Where many of them occur together, you are very likely dealing with a false teaching.  The deceiving spirits that accompany false teachings work through flattery.  Most people take the bait, wanting to believe they are special, chosen, wise . . .

The Bible tells us to “take captive every THOUGHT to make it obedient to Christ”. (2 Corinthians 10:5) Everything we do, and everything we say, springs from what is in our heart. What is in our heart is determined by what we ALLOW in. We must use our minds, and our knowledge of Scripture, to determine what we should allow in, and what we should reject (a reason hypnosis is so dangerous is that it bypasses this safeguard).

Not every thought we have springs from within us. Sometimes, even unwittingly, we adopt the thoughts of others because of things we see and hear. Other thoughts are little ‘darts’ that the enemy sends into our minds.

We must study our Bibles to know the ‘mind of God’. Then we must purposely align our thoughts and beliefs with His. We must reject thoughts that are not in alignment with His Word. This is how we safeguard our souls. This is where the battle rages–first, in our minds. What we do, will spring from what we believe, and what we allow to take root in our heart.

Not seeing things from God’s point of view (not ‘having the mind of God’) is why so many people have persistent sin in their life that they seem unable to overcome. Our minds must be changed, towards our sin. It is not enough, merely to know that something is bad. Through study of the Word of God, we will understand WHY something is bad–and therein lies the motivation for change.

Then, the thoughts that precede the sin must be recognized and ‘taken captive’ (rejected). We can only recognize these thoughts, by learning what the Word of God says, and making God’s way of thinking our own.

This is how the Word of God transforms us: it allows us to view things through God’s eyes, it aligns our hearts with His, and it motivates us to change to please Him and to be more like Him.

This is from an ancient manuscript.  It was part of a collection of ancient writings, held among the descendents of the Israelite tribe of Ephraim.  It is not ‘Holy Scripture’, it is not part of the Bible.  It has been regarded as ancient truth that has been passed down through the ages.  If you choose to read further, consider it prayerfully, that God might confirm or deny to you its validity.

I am posting it here, with my comments, because it speaks as an eyewitness account of things that have passed, that are soon to return.  It seems that it may  link what is prophesied in the Bible with events that are happening now.

There is much interest today about a supposed comet named Elenin, a planet named Nibiru or Planet X, and a dwarf star/neutron star/carbon star that is a companion to our sun.  There is much confusion as to the relationship between them, or if they are one and the same.  I believe that time and astronomical observation will make that all clear.  What follows are my opinions.

The coming of whatever is approaching us (now on the other side of the sun)  is said to be in September of this year, 2011, through November of the same.  In that same time frame are also predicted to arrive 2 comets (3 if Elenin is indeed a comet), and 3 asteroids–one which is expected to scarcely miss impact with the moon.

Whether Elenin is a harbinger, and a precursor to the coming of  ‘The Destroyer’, or whether Elenin IS ‘The Destroyer’, I do not know.  But I do believe that ‘The Destroyer’ is what causes the events of ‘the sixth seal’ and (some or all of)  ‘the seven trumpets’ in the book of Revelation.

“I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red,  and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind.  The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place.

Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains . . . ”  (Revelation 6: 12-15)

” . . . it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc . . . ”  (Isaiah 54:16)

Right now, it seems that Elenin may be a planet orbiting the dwarf star (and possibly our sun, as well), and that the dwarf star, or possibly another one of the seven planet that orbits it, when it arrives later, will cause the events known as the ‘seven bowls of God’s wrath’, later in the book of Revelation (chapter 16).

Because of the trajectory of its approach*, most people will not be aware of what is coming, until it is actually upon us and obscures the face of the sun.  Its position, and size, is expected to be such that it will totally eclipse the sun.

Before reading further, I would ask you to watch the video below.  This is the best understanding of men, so far.  The words of the speaker are not prophecy.  The fear in his voice reflects the ancient accounts of the effects that ‘The Destroyer’ has on men when it arrives.  The speaker has glimpsed it from a distance.  He had an opportunity, through a telescope, to go forward in time if you will.  What he has seen coming is what we will all see one day.

Jesus said that:

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.”  (Luke 21: 25-26)

I believe the video gives some crucial information in putting together the pieces of this puzzle.  After watching it, please continue reading.  I will post the ancient text below, with numbers in parentheses to refer to my notes, which will follow it.

THE DESTROYER – PART 3

FROM THE SCROLL OF ADEPHA

The Doomshape, called the Destroyer, in Egypt, was seen in all the lands whereabouts. In colour it was bright and fiery, in appearance changing and unstable. It twisted about itself like a coil, like water bubbling into a pool from an underground supply, and all men agree it was a most fearsome sight. It was not a great comet or a loosened star, being more like a fiery body of flame. (1)

Its movements on high were slow, below it swirled in the manner of smoke and it remained close to the sun whose face it hid. There was a bloody redness about it, which changed as it passed along its course. It caused death and destruction in its rising and setting. It swept the Earth with grey cinder rain (2) and caused many plagues, hunger and other evils. It bit the skin of men and beast until they became mottled with sores.

The Earth was troubled and shook, the hills and mountains moved and rocked. The dark smoke-filled Heavens bowed over Earth and a great howl came to the ears of men, borne to them upon the wings of the wind. It was the cry of the Dark Lord, the Master of Dread. Thick clouds of fiery smoke passed before him and there was an awful hail of hot stones and coals of fire. (3) The Doomshape thundered sharply in the Heavens and shot out bright lightings. The channels of water were turned back unto themselves when the land tilted, and great trees were tossed about and snapped like twigs. Then a voice like ten thousand trumpets was heard over the wilderness (4), and before its burning breath the flames parted. The whole of the land moved and mountains melted.  (5) The sky itself roared like ten thousand lions in agony, and bright arrows of blood sped back and forth across its face. Earth swelled up like bread upon the hearth. (6)

This was the aspect of the Doomshape called the Destroyer, when it appeared in days long gone by, in olden times. It is thus described in the old records, few of which remain. It is said that when it appears in the Heavens above, Earth splits open from the heat, like a nut roasted before the fire. Then flames shoot up through the surface and leap about like fiery fiends upon black blood.  (7) The moisture inside the land is all dried up, the pastures and cultivated places are consumed in flames and they and all trees become white ashes. (3)

The Doomshape is like a circling ball of flame which scatters small fiery offspring in its train (8). It covers about a fifth part of the sky and sends writhing snakelike fingers down to Earth (9). Before it the sky appears frightened, and it breaks up and scatters away.  (10) Midday is no brighter than night. (11) It spawns a host of terrible things.

These are things said of the Destroyer in the old records, read them with a solemn heart, knowing that the Doomshape has its appointed time and will return. It would be foolish to let them go unheeded. Now men say, “Such things are not destined for our days”. May the Great God above grant that this be so. But come, the day surely will, and in accordance with his nature man will be unprepared.

(numbered notes below)

These events, in the heavens–the position of the sun, stars, moon, planets, etc. in the sky–are also called ‘signs in the heavens’.  They are stories, being told by the stars, of what is happening on Earth.  If you have read Revelation 12 , you probably got the gist of it from the written account–the birth of Jesus, persecution, the protection of Israel, etc.  But, until recently, most of us didn’t know that it was actually ALSO a description of the position of heavenly bodies at the time these events are unfolding.  ‘The Destroyer’ aka ‘The Red Dragon’ is now nearly in place in the heavens, in accordance with John’s vision.

Both God’s Word, and the heavens declare — for those who have ‘eyes to see’!

* If you picture the solar system from above, the sun in the center, the planets revolve counterclockwise around it (except Mercury).  According to Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the trajectory of Elenin, is coming from both beneath the sun (and moving upwards) and behind the sun, moving counterclockwise around it also–coming out from behind it on the left side.  As it sweeps around the sun, it crosses the orbital paths of Mercury, passes directly between us and the sun, continues to remain on our  right side as it sweeps past us and upward.  Eventually we pass between it and the sun.  This whole chain of events is predicted to take place from early September to late November.

Our distance from Elenin is not the only factor to be considered.  The Earth responds to the gravitational pull of the sun, other planets and, during this time, Elenin.  When any number of these players are aligned in a straight line, I picture it as a ‘tug of war’ rope (or ropes) attached to the Earth.  Each player takes hold of the (imaginary) rope and pulls.  When the Sun, Mercury, and Elenin all line up on one side of the Earth (Sept. 26-28)–there is a stronger than usual pull in that direction.  When the Earth is between the Sun and Elenin (Nov. 11), we are being pulled from both sides.

As Elenin passes through our solar system, a number of different alignments occur. Their effects on the Earth will depend on who the ‘players’ are.  Approximately 20 major earthquakes, so far, have been correlated with the approach of Elenin.  They can only be expected to grow in intensity as it nears.  The position of Elenin, with respect to the Earth, on November 22 will mirror its position on March 11th–the day of the great quake in Japan.  However, Elenin will be four times closer to Earth on November 22 than it was then.

1.  As described in the video above–an [magnetic] iron planet surrounded by an enormous cloud of iron oxide dust, orbited by asteroids, and with a tremendous tail of meteors following behind it.

2.  Possibly ash from the volcanic eruptions it caused.

3. Rev. 8: 7–the first trumpet judgment:

“The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.”

4. The trumpet judgments begin.

5.  Revelation 6: 14:

” . . . and every mountain and island was removed from its place.”

6. The Earth expands, and the surface cracks, from the gravitational pull.

7.  Iron rich, basaltic lava flows

8.  Meteors

9.  Tornadoes?

10.  Revelation 6: 14:

“The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up . . . “

11.  Revelation 6: 12:

” . . .The sun turned black like sackcloth . . . “

I now strongly suspect that the entire ‘Nibiru’ theory is a hoax.  This 3 hour series covers many things, including the Nibiru theory.  If you are seeking truth, please consider watching:
