Although many will say ‘God is in control’ and ‘God is still on the throne’, that is not true to the extent that most people think.

 

In the beginning, God appointed Adam and Eve to rule over the Earth:

 

‘And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.’  (Gen. 1:28)

 

But when Adam and Eve yielded themselves to obey Satan, he became their master.

 

‘Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?’  (Romans 6:16)

 

When they surrendered themselves to Satan, all that was theirs (dominion over the Earth) became his.

 

‘In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.’  (2 Cor. 4:4)

 

‘And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.’  (Luke 4:5-6)

 

The whole world is now experiencing the ‘knowledge of good and evil’ firsthand.  There is now a hierarchy of fallen angels ruling over the Earth.

 

‘For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.’  (Ephesians 6:12)

 

Out of all the peoples of the Earth, God called a man out to submit to Him and be under His authority.  That man was Abraham.  God then became his God (and the God of whomever of his descendants would also submit to Him).’And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

 

And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee. And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.’  (Gen. 17:1-8)

 

‘And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God:’  (Gen. 28:20-21)

 

Abraham’s descendants, through Isaac and Jacob, are known as ‘Israel’.  Israel is a nation of twelve different tribes.  (The ‘Jews’ are of the tribe of Judah.)  God called Israel to be HIS people, among all of the people of the Earth (who belonged to Satan and his fallen angels).  Israel was called to constantly rebel against Satan and his dominion over the Earth, by submitting themselves to God and HIS statutes, instead of submitting themselves to Satan.  But time and again they chose to submit themselves to Satan, and came again under his dominion.  God would allow Satan to persecute and oppress the Israelites (through the neighboring nations that belonged to Satan), until the people would cry out in repentance and willingly submit themselves to God again.  While they were in submission to God, God would appoint His angels to watch over them.

 

‘Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia’ [the fallen angel that rules over the Persian (Iranian) people] ‘withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael,’ [one of God’s Holy Angels, appointed over the Israelites] ‘one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.  . . .  Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.’   (Dan. 10:12-13, 20-21)

 

‘And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

 

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.’  (2 Kings 6:15-17)

 

‘The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.’  (Psalm 34:7)

———————————————————————————————————————–

The Bible tells us that:

 

‘And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.’  (Rev. 12:7-9)

 

We are also told that:

 

‘Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;’  (1 Tim. 4:1)

 

If devils are imparting ‘doctrines of devils’ to men . . . is it not reasonable to assume that some of them are appearing directly to men to do so?  We know for certain that Mohammed (Islam) and Joseph Smith (Mormonism) claimed that angels had appeared to them and taught them the doctrines that they later taught to others.

 

‘Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.’  (1 John 4:1)

 

When men listen to these fallen angels, and spread their message to others, they are most certainly false prophets.  Jesus warned us that in the end times

 

‘ . . . many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.’  (Matt. 24:11)

 

Given that we are told there would be a war in heaven in the latter days (Rev. 12:7), and that many in the latter times would give heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils . . . and the fact that so many of today’s (‘mainstream Christian’) false prophets claim to have been visited by angels, we should be EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS about any sort of angelic visitation that WE might have!  (In fact, we should command them to flee, in Jesus’ name.  Only a Holy Angel could remain in that case.)

 

‘And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.’  (2 Cor. 11:14-15)

 

We are also warned that part of the strong delusion that overtakes the world will include a ‘False Prophet’.  This False Prophet will be at the forefront of leading the people to worship Satan.  He will appear to be Christian, but will speak doctrines of demons.

 

‘And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

 

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

 

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.’  (Rev. 13:11-18)

 

‘And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.’  (Rev. 16:13)

 

This world will eventually be ruled by a political leader who is demon possessed (The Son of Perdition) and a (demon possessed) religious leader who promotes him.  It is important to understand that JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE BELIEVES IN JESUS AND PROFESSES TO BE A CHRISTIAN, DOESN’T MEAN THEY ARE ONE!

 

‘And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.’  (2 Cor. 11:14-15)

Now, we have wandered a bit beyond the point of this note . . .

 

There was a time when America submitted herself to God and was under His protection.  But through widespread sin, the removing of God’s Commandments, and the making of new laws which legalize sin, America has now submitted herself to Satan and is again under his dominion.  In other words, America is no longer ‘one nation under God’.  As vassals of Satan, it is up to HIM which power or principality (fallen angel) will be appointed to rule over us.  Right now it seems to be the prince of Babylon.  Perhaps it will be Allah.  But make no mistake, God is no longer the God of America.  We have rejected Him, and unless and until we repent, He has turned His back on America.

 

 

If we wish to have the protection and blessing of God, we must repent and submit to His Commandments.  Although it is  highly unlikely that America as a whole will repent and turn to God, we still must sound the alarm.  Please share this article, if you feel led.

False Jesus

A False Jesus

I have always assumed that WHEN the Antichrist and the False Prophet came, they would persuade people to follow them.  However, what I’m seeing is really disturbing . . . what I’m seeing within so-called ‘Christianity’.

If we put names aside . . . the one that so many in ‘Christianity’ are following is not the Jesus that was born of the virgin Mary and ministered in Israel 2,000 years ago.  The modern, self-professed Christian will not follow a savior that tells them to leave all behind for Him . . . that tells them to take up their cross daily . . . to crucify their flesh . . . that calls on them to love their enemies and to turn the other cheek . . . that expects them to endure tribulation and suffering for His sake, yet wait until after death to receive their rewards . . . that calls them to repentance . . . that expects them to follow God’s Commandments . . . and to be holy.

The ‘savior’ they will follow is one who says ‘do as thou wilt–grace will cover it’ . . . and ‘if you sin you will not surely die’. . . who tells them ‘come as you are’ and ‘you’re special’ . . . and ‘let me show you how to have your best life now’ and ‘you deserve to be prosperous’ . . . who leads them to believe they are little gods . . . who doesn’t require them to submit to his authority (yet) . . . who has no expectations of them . . . who has created the universe to satisfy THEIR needs and desires . . . who is supremely tolerant, even of sin, and never judges . . . who promises to deliver them from tribulation . . . and who ever lives to serve them.

They may call him Jesus . . . they may even BELIEVE he was born of the virgin Mary and ministered in Israel 2,000 years ago . . . but they have been duped by an identity thief . . . the consummate con man and father of liars.  You see, mainstream Christianity has already been cleverly, covertly, introduced to The False Prophet.  They will CONTINUE to follow him when he comes.  All he’ll have to do is ‘clarify’ a few Scriptures that would show him as an imposter.  He already fits all their beliefs.  He IS the one they believe in . . . the one they are serving already. He’s even been appearing to them in dreams and visions.  What he says when he comes, will be consistent with what their churches are teaching about ‘Jesus’.  He is the one, of whom it is said, will be Buddha to the Buddhists, The Mahdi to the Muslims, and Jesus to the (not) Christians.

If you doubt me–try telling today’s mainstream ‘Christian’ about the real Jesus and watch how they react.

‘They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.  We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.’ (1 John 4:5-6)

Let me tell you about their ‘Jesus’ . . .

‘And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.’  (Revelation 13:11-18)

UPDATE 12/18/12:

Have we been VISUALLY set up to accept an ‘ascended master’ (fallen angel) as Jesus, but who would actually be the ‘False Prophet’ of Revelation 13? 

I think we may have been set up for the arrival of a fallen angel posing as an ‘ascended master’ called Sananda Emmanuel.  Pictures representing this ‘ascended master’ look very much like the face on the Shroud of Turin (which I now strongly doubt is the burial cloth of Christ).  His pictures ALSO look very much like the typical ‘Jesus’ portraits that have been representing our Lord for the last several hundred years.  (In fact, the model who posed for the famous portrait was the homosexual lover of the artist.  The model was Cesare Borgia the illegitimate son to Pope Alexander the VI!)

If this ‘ascended master’ turns out to be The ‘False Prophet’, think of how many people have already been set up to accept him, with open arms. For some, all it will take is that he speaks well, makes them feel good, and looks like the pictures of Jesus they’ve always seen.

Check out the three photos below:

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)

As most of you have noticed, the world did not end yesterday.  No one was raptured.  No notable signs of judgment took place.

While most Christians are not surprised, it is still a sad day.  Not sad because judgment failed to happen–sad because apparently thousands, or tens of thousands of people around the world were misled.  Mr. Camping’s ministry broadcast in over 30 different languages.

Anyone who followed Mr. Camping this far is now in a very vulnerable position, spiritually.  For those who will admit it, there is a sense of shame–of being foolish, and of wanting to run and hide.  These souls will likely distance themselves completely from anything that makes mention of judgment or end-times events.  They will go back to a life of sin, and may become the biggest opponents of the teaching of end-time prophecies.

Of course, there are others who will rationalize, justify, and defend themselves and Mr. Camping.  They will become more devout in their beliefs and will further immerse themselves in the mental gymnastics of denial.  This will make them even more susceptible to every kind of deception.

One would hope that Mr. Camping would finally come to his senses, and allow the Lord to break his pride (which he claims not to need anyhow).  A full retraction and apology are in order.  Then, it would probably be best for him to say goodbye to his followers, close up shop, and spend his remaining retirement years really, humbly, seeking God–alone.  His prophetic interpretations have surely not done anyone any good.

Please don’t try to fix this one, Mr. Camping.  Have the grace to step aside and let the Lord clean up the broken people.

The rest of us need to keep these people in our prayers, because they are now suffering much internal devastation.  Everything they have believed in has proven to be a lie.  Don’t laugh.  No matter how smart you think you are, it could happen to you.  These deceptions may be apparent to those on the outside, when they have come to full maturity, but they overtake one’s mind by degrees.

Be sure your faith is based on the Word of God.  Make sure you are learning from Him–hold all teachers at arm’s length.

Don’t let pride form your opinion of yourself.

Pray always, seeking God about all things.  Ask God for wisdom, and understanding.  Believe in His faithfulness and ability to grant them to you.  ‘Listen to your gut’ and don’t let people explain away your doubts.

Contrary to popular doctrine, you are more likely to go the wrong way if you are running with the herd.  Consider that Jesus said the path to destruction is broad and many people are on that path–also that the true path is narrow and few find it.  He also promises that if you seek, you will find.

Look at those whose stories are in the Bible, as great men of faith–how many of them followed along with the crowd?  The men who heard from God spent much time alone with Him, seeking wisdom from Him and studying His word.

God is not going to send any great man to teach us all (but Satan will continue to).  God’s Holy Spirit is dispersed among us, in the heart of each believer (if you have received it).  He teaches each of us, and desires that, like Enoch, each of us ‘walk with Him.’

Here’s something a friend wrote.  I felt it deserved to be posted!

I’m sure by now you’ve heard the news that judgment day is this Saturday. Yes that fateful day of May 21st is this weekend. There are billboards all over the country announcing it. Caravans of people are out spreading the word. And the media has announced it to the world. The pastor says that he has Biblical proof that Saturday is the day. You see, he got his math right this time.

So what does this all mean? (Besides the fact that this pastor is just 6 days away from becoming a false prophet). In fact he’s been a false prophet since 1994.

Now I’m sure that he doesn’t mean to be. And I’m sure that he believes that he’s right. But he missed some key points in his studies, like the entire book of Revelation. He also missed a few key points in Matthew 24, as well as countless other Scriptures that plainly tell us what will happen before the end.

Another point I would like to make is this, as far as my understanding goes, God doesn’t set exact dates for things to happen. There will be “signs of the times”, but no set dates. The Father can tarry as long as He wants, whenever He wants. He is not bound by dates and deadlines. Furthermore, people have been studying the Bible for as long as the Bible has been around. Why hasn’t anyone else come up with that date?

So why is this such a big story? It’s because of what’s going to happen on May 21st…nothing. Then on May 22nd the world can point and laugh at the ‘stupid Christians’.

I think that the media intentionally picked up on this story in order to make endtime warning Christians look like a bunch of idiots. So when the fig tree really IS ripe, people won’t take the warning seriously.

It’s a two sided attack, make Christians look stupid, and don’t take the warnings serious. It’s like a combination of crying wolf and chicken little.”No really! The sky is falling! I mean it this time!”

So many Christians are waiting for ‘the rapture’. They think that it will happen any day now. I see it on just about every endtime prophecy teaching. They always seem to overlook one key word in Matthew 13:30. “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but it never ceases to amaze me how so many people miss that. Of course a lot of the new versions of the Bible re-word things and leave out entire verses, so I guess that I shouldn’t be too surprised. Not to mention, a lot of Christians rely on their pastor to read and interpret the Bible for them.

(J. Piraneo, 5-17-11)

While Christians have been looking for the ‘end-time’ religion everywhere else, Islam has been sweeping across the globe.  Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world.  The influence of ‘Christianity’*  is declining, and Islam is moving in to fill the void.  I believe Islam is the ‘end-time’ one-world-religion that Biblical prophecies describe.

Islam is a system of governance, that rules by a system of law (Sharia) that is not based upon the 10 commandments that God gave to men.  It is a system of law based upon the teachings of satan contained in the Quran and other Islamic writings.  This law, and system of governance, demands that every soul on earth be in submission to it and, furthermore, involves and demands worship from its subjects.

Islam makes no separation between ‘church’ and ‘state’.  Indeed, it inextricably weaves the two together.

 

*My belief is that the way most ‘Westerners’ have practiced Christianity has weakened its power and compromised the gospel message.  We have adopted the culture and standards of the West, creating a ‘lukewarm’ Christianity that appeals to very few. In the end, it will not stand against the forces that will oppose it, but instead, will seek to find common ground and join with them.  God is calling His true followers to separate themselves from this watered down, in-name-only ‘Christianity’.

 

My belief is that the first beast (spoken of in Revelation 13) is a new, socialist, Islamic, empire that rises from the ruins of America.  Our current America is represented by the seven heads; and the new, socialist, Islamic Amerika-led world empire is represented by the ten horns.

Rulership/authority will change from the seven heads (global elites that have been in power for hundreds of years) to the ten horns (ten new rulers, on the not-so-distant horizon).

The revolution/coup is already taking place before our eyes, but thanks to the spin the media puts on everything, many people are unaware.  Of those that are spiritually discerning and are wakening to what is happening politically, few recognize its Biblically prophetic significance.

 

Notice that the second beast (with two horns like a lamb, who ‘speaks like a dragon’) is a religious leader.  Many Christians refer to him as ‘The False Prophet’.  (Not to be confused with ‘The Antichrist’, who is the ‘mouth’ of the first beast.)

This religious leader will ‘[exercise] all the authority of the first beast’ (world empire) ‘on his behalf, and [make] the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast’ (world empire).

In other words, we will have a world-wide religious leader exercising all the authority of the beast (the world government). This can all come together, quite simply, under an Islamic world government.

But, if you’ve read my other posts, you know that I believe the world empire (called ‘the first beast’), is America.  I still believe this, because I believe that America fits the description.  And, as I’ve stated here, I believe the first beast will be an Islamic world government.  So . . . that must mean an Islamic America . . .

Is an Islamic America really a possibility?  As unbelievable as the idea was just a few short years ago, there seems to be a good probability of it all coming together under the ‘leadership’ of Barack Obama. Furthermore, to me, he seems to fit the description of the one referred to as ‘The Antichrist’, as I have outlined in other posts.

Yes, it all seems quite surreal to me too.  Christian, if you really want to know the truth, I ask you to commit yourself to pray to God and read your Bible.

If you are not a Christian–Jesus Christ is where it all begins.  Without Jesus Christ, you do not have the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is the ‘key’ that opens the spiritual ‘lock’ on the Holy Bible, so that we can understand it.  Without help from the Holy Spirit, you will not be able to understand the Word of God.

 

Obama And The ‘Peaceful, Loving’ Islamic Invasion Of America

Why Obama Won’t Salute The Flag

Please . . . Do It For America

 

I have always taken Matthew 24:24 to mean that when ‘the antichrist’ came, he would be so convincing that he would very nearly fool true Christians, but that it isn’t possible for him to. This has led me not to blindly accept the common interpretations of end-times prophecies.

Ironically, looking more closely at this verse has caused me to consider that my interpretation of it might not be the meaning that the Lord was trying to convey to us.

When I compare different translations of the verse, the meaning I take away now is, to paraphrase: false messiahs and false prophets will come and they’ll use great signs and wonders in an attempt to deceive everyone, including Christians, if possible. I don’t see that verse assuring us that we cannot be led astray. The King James version and the NIV seem to imply it, but the other versions don’t. (See comparison of versions here.)

In fact, we have seen people follow (and worship?) men like Charles Manson, Jim Jones, and David Koresh, and who may have believed their leader was a Messiah. Some of them would undoubtedly have insisted that they (themselves) were Christians.

Joseph Smith and Muhammed (false prophets) claimed divine revelation and supernatural signs. (Did Joseph Smith ‘target’ sincere, but not well-grounded Christians?) Today, via the wonders of modern technology, we have some televangelists whose target audience is Christians, that they deliberately lead astray to line their own pockets.

I think the point of the verse may be, that there are evil men who will pose as prophets and saviors in a deliberate attempt to lead people astray—and some of them will purposely target Christians. Take heed that NO man deceive you.

A common teaching is that ‘the antichrist’ will be a man of great charisma and charm who is loved by everyone, and almost no one can discern that he is the guy. I don’t see that spelled out in Scripture. I believe it is a common assumption.

By the way, don’t make the mistake of believing ‘the antichrist’ (as people call him) is the same as ‘the beast’ in Revelation 13. The antichrist is the ‘mouth’ of the beast (Rev. 13:5), the spokesman for the beast (empire), if you will. This spokesman/leader will be given authority over everyone, and everyone will worship the beast (empire) he represents. He is the one who will make war against Christians. This is who people refer to as ‘the antichrist’.

While we are on the subject of assumptions—don’t assume God gives the antichrist his authority. (Rev. 13:5, 13:7) It MAY come from God, or it may be granted as the result of a vote by the people, an appointment by a committee or organization (such as the UN, a world council of churches, the Vatican, the leaders of Islam, etc.).

It might be that he is elected, or appointed for 42 months, or that God only allows him 42 months.

‘Power to make war against the saints and to conquer them’ might be what God allows him, or it might be a job assigned to him by men.

All the inhabitants of the Earth (except those chosen by God) may willingly, adoringly worship the beast empire—or they people may ‘worship’ it by being in awe of it, or by paying a tithe or tax to it, etc.

I think many times we don’t even realize that we are making assumptions, but a word can have many meanings, and words combined can have a multitude of possible interpretations.

Many prophecies were given concerning the (first) coming of Jesus Christ. He fulfilled them all, but some of them were so subtle that their fulfillment was overlooked. I believe that the religious had already determined in their minds just what His coming would ‘look like’—but apparently they were wrong. For that reason, I encourage you to keep an open mind, and seek God for wisdom, in the perilous times that lay ahead!

The (first) coming of Christ was revealed to the ordinary, the humble, and the outcast. God did not reveal himself to the powerful, the prideful, or the religious. It was not revealed to Bible scholars, religious leaders, or kings. But it was revealed to shepherds, an aged widow, and a devout man (Luke 2:8-38). His birth was revealed to those who were waiting and hoping in Him.

It is ALL about the condition of our heart. It is not by having knowledge, and a complete understanding of God’s word that some will be able to recognize ‘the antichrist’ when he comes. I believe his appearing, while fulfilling prophecies, will not be what people expect. I think many of the prophecies will be very subtle, and low-key in their fulfillment (ie. easy to miss). But I believe that those whose hearts are humble, and turned toward God, will receive His revelation—and warning–when it comes to them.

One last thing, in regards to the coming of the antichrist, and the first coming of Christ–it bears repeating, that most people don’t believe Jesus was the Messiah.  They are most likely looking for the same sort of leader that they were looking for when He came the first time.  More clues to what the antichrist will be like might be found simply by finding out what people who are looking for a messiah are expecting.

If you are looking for answers as to what is going on in the world today and/or are trying to understand the book of Revelation, you have probably run across some websites of crazy conspiracy theorists with outlandish claims concerning the use of mind control.  I guess you’ll have to add my site to that list now.  This is where my skepticism would always kick in, where I drew the line between what is most likely going on and what are purely paranoid ravings . . . until yesterday.

As farfetched as mind control sounds, (and I can’t believe I’m even believing it is possible myself) I read something yesterday that changed my mind.  Of course, it wasn’t just this, it just happens that this was what finally caused me to believe. ( Certain things just jump out at me.  One was the (blue) Norway Spiral, most likely projected from the nearby ionospheric heater [the equivalent of our HAARP in Alaska].  And there were enough plausible things said regarding  The NASA Blue Beam Project for me not to dismiss the idea completely.)  summary of Blue Beam Project

Yesterday, while skimming the news, I was intrigued by the summary of an article and went on to read it.  What I read was an article detailing research on optogenetics–how the brain turns perceptions into actions (what makes one decide to act on what they sense).

Somewhere, I had read that when voices are being projected into your head, you ‘hear’ them in the front of your head, rather than through your ears.  I’m also pretty sure they said that they could be projected in through your eyes.

This may mean that when Jesus warned us, He was also referring to a specific event that would occur.  (from what I understand, a specific event is planned: ‘Night of the Thousand Stars’ [scroll down to step 4].)

“At that time if anyone says to you ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.  For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.  See I have told you ahead of time.  So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert.’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms.’ do not believe it.  For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

Back to where we were . . . The research is aimed at understanding how different brain circuits work.  In order to understand, it is necessary for the scientists to control a brain circuit, so that they can activate specific neurons and learn what each one does.

The research consists of changing a virus into a package that will implant a certain gene into neurons.  (Viruses invade cells and implant their DNA in them.) In order not to have every neuron activated, part of the package is a ‘promoter’ sequence of proteins that is compatible with the neurons they want to activate.

Now that the package is inserted into the cells (the brain is infected with the virus), and only the chosen neurons will respond, light of the proper wavelength is applied.  (I may refer to the wavelength of light that we perceive as blue, because it was mentioned in the article–but I would presume that many different wavelengths could be used, with viral packages designed to respond to their particular wavelength/color.  The article inferred as much.)

As a note-when testing mice, an optic fiber was threaded into their skull so that the light could be applied to the brain.  Later in the article it is mentioned that they are

“designing a light source that would weigh a fraction of a gram so that animals can walk around freely rather than being tethered to a fibre-optic cable”.

Illustration of the procedure explained above

What stands out to me is that once the neurons in the brain are mapped, it would then be possible to tell them what to do, using blue light, after the brain (neurons) have been infected with the virus that causes them to respond to the blue light.

(Note:

“Deisseroth and Boyden have discovered or engineered many other opsins that allow neurons to be manipulated in different ways, including neural silencers.”  (emphases mine)

Would I be wrong to interpret ‘neural silencers’ as paralyzers?  Paralyzers of movement?  Maybe paralyzers of thought and perception as well?)

(Did I mention that the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency–DARPA–has awarded Deisseroth, Sabes and Shenoy a 2 year $14.9 million dollar grant for conducting their research? And that Deisseroth & Sabes also received another $1.6 million research grant from the National Institutes of Health?

*Karl Deisseroth:  pioneered the field of optogenetics, beginning in 2005.

*Philip Sabes: neuroscientist, at the Keck Center for Integrative Neuroscience at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

*Krishna Shenoy: a primate electrophysiologist at Stanford University who has been working closely with Deisseroth for two years to explore how neurons in the brain’s motor cortex control arm movements.)

Let me summarize.  It is now possible, to differing extents (in mice, rats and primates) to infect the brain with a virus that has a ‘package’ attached, then use a particular wavelength/color of light to cause the animal to perform (or  not perform?) certain actions–if they are tethered to a fiber optic strand, which will later be replaced by a tiny light source that is attached to (?) or implanted into (?) the animal.

So, when this is applicable to humans (and that is the intent–first mice, then rats and birds, then primates, then humans), the test subjects’ brains will be infected with a specially designed virus and a tiny source of light will be attached to, or implanted in, their head.  Then, the light source can be remotely controlled to cause certain neurons to respond–neurons that cause the body to perform whatever action the researcher wants it to perform . . .

  • Is it not feasible then, that a number of different, specially designed viruses can be used to infect the test subject’s brain, which will each respond to a different color of light, and control different actions?  Yes.  The quote above confirms that.  The ‘opsins’ are genes that respond to certain colors of light, that are implanted into the neuron by the virus.  ‘The package’ refers to an opsin, coupled with a promoter, as explained above.
  • Is it possible to create a tiny light source that is able to deliver light of a multitude of different wavelengths?  I would assume it would be fairly simple to expand from the capability of producing one color to being able to produce many colors.
  • If this light source can be remotely controlled to produce a multitude of colors, is it not possible that a computer could remotely trigger a choreographed sequence of colors that produce a certain sequence of actions?

(I wonder if we would perceive that as a sparkling rainbow of light?)

I keep wanting to think of this tiny light source as a tiny computerized chip that would be applied to the forehead.  I am not saying that to cause people to fear this would be ‘The Mark Of The Beast’–although it certainly could be, and is scary enough already if it can control some of our actions.

I am presenting what might be a plausible reason for people to have something applied to their forehead–aside from being a mark of membership.  When evil forces are ruling the world, and every single one of their followers have their mark applied to their body–is it not likely they would make the most of that opportunity?

I don’t want to mislead anyone.  I don’t know what The Mark will be.  I don’t want anything I say to cause you to form a belief as to what it will (or won’t) be, other than the explanation the Bible gives.

As I stated in a previous post,

My opinion is  ‘not being able to buy or sell without The Mark’  isn’t indicating the purpose of  The Mark, but is telling us what the punishment is for those who are in opposition to satan’s kingdom (as evidenced by their refusing to take the mark of membership)

But I also suspect that The Mark Of The Beast may be more than a mere tattoo–that it has capabilities of some sort, that can be triggered remotely.  It is possible that The Mark will be an integral part of a plan for mind control and remote monitoring of the world’s population.
