Adam means ‘Red Man’

Standard

Satan, the hater of man and all that is good, plotted Adam’s fall from the time he was cast down from heaven. He and his angels, having denied themselves their Divine birthright as the Sons of Yahweh through their rebellion, were now bent on ensuring that man would not inherit their place in the Kingdom of the Most High.
Adam and Eve were tricked into eating the Forbidden Fruit, and were sent away from the Garden of Eden by their Father, Yahweh Almighty, for disobeying Him.

Yet, He did not kill them (He had told them they would die if they ate the Forbidden Fruit), but out of love for them, He forgave them, and promised them salvation from the death — mortality and eternity in hell — they had brought on themselves.
And when Adam begged to be forgiven and allowed back into the garden, and to be restored to his previous state of immortality, Yahweh told him that he had to be patient and wait until the end of the world, when Yahweh would go down to hell and free all the righteous souls that are there:

“Then the Word of Yahweh came to Adam, and said to him, ‘Adam, as to what you say, ‘Take me into a land where there is rest’, it is not another land than this, but it is the kingdom of heaven where alone there is rest.

But you cannot enter into it at present; but only after your judgment is past and fulfilled.

Then will I take you up into the kingdom of heaven, you and your righteous offspring; and I will give you and them the rest you ask for at present.

And if you said, ‘Give me the Water of Life, so that I may drink and live’, it cannot be today, but on the day that I shall descend into hell, and break the gates of brass, and shatter into pieces the kingdoms of iron.

Then will I, in mercy, save your soul and the souls of the righteous, to give them rest in My garden. And that shall be when the end of the world has come.

And, again, as regards the Water of Life you seek, it will not be given to you today; but on the day that I shall shed My blood on your head in the land of Golgotha.

For My Blood shall be the Water of Life to you, at that time, and not to you alone, but to all those of your offspring who shall believe in Me; it will be for them to rest in for ever.’”

(Adam’s embalmed body was carried in the ark and buried in the ‘middle of the earth’, Golgotha, right beneath the place the Messiah, Yahshua, was crucified; and His Blood dripped on the mercy seat of the ark of the covenant and on Adam’s head (see Where do we go when we die?).)

Satan’s envy because Yahweh had forgiven Adam and Eve drove him to attempt, on several occasions, to kill them after they left the garden, and also to try to deceive them into worshipping him. He made several appearances as a woman, an Angel, an old man, etc. Never showing himself in his true hideous form — he and the angels that joined in his rebellion were stripped of their beauty and bright nature before being expelled from heaven.

Each time, however, Adam prayed to his Heavenly Father, Who sent His Angels and Archangels to rescue them. Satan also told Adam and Eve that he would torture them in hell, and work to make sure their offspring would not enter heaven.

“But, after the Angels left Adam and Eve, then came Satan, looking ashamed, and stood at the entrance of the cave in which Adam and Eve were. He then called to Adam, and said, ‘Adam, come, let me speak to you.’

Then Adam came out of the cave, thinking he was one of Yahweh’s Angels Who had come to give him some good advice.

But when Adam came out and saw his hideous appearance, he was afraid of him, and said to him, ‘Who are you?’

Then Satan answered and said to him, ‘It is I, who hid myself within the serpent, and who talked to Eve, and tempted her until she listened to my advice. I am he who sent her, through the lies of my speech, to deceive you, until you and she ate the fruit of the tree, and you came away from under the command of Yahweh.’

When Adam heard these words from him, he said to him, ‘Can you make me a garden as Yahweh made for me? Or can you clothe me in the same bright nature in which He had clothed me?

Where is the Divine nature you promised to give me? Where is that fair speech of yours, that you spoke to us with at first, when we were in the garden?’

Then Satan said to Adam, ‘Do you think that when I have spoken to anyone about anything, I shall ever bring it to him or fulfil my word? Not so. For I myself have never even thought of obtaining what I asked.

Therefore, I fell, and made you fall by that for which I myself fell; and whoever else accepts my advice will also fall.

But now, Adam, because of your fall you are under my rule, and I am king over you; because you listened to me, and sinned against your Father. There will there be no deliverance from my hands until the day promised you by your Father.’

Again he said, ‘Since we do not know the day agreed on with you by your Father, or the hour in which you shall be saved, we will multiply war and murder on you and your offspring after you.

This is our will and our good pleasure, that we may not leave even one of the sons of men to inherit our orders in heaven.

For our home, Adam, is in burning fire; and we will not stop our evil actions, not one day or one hour. And I, Adam, shall spread fire on you when you come into the cave to live in it.’

When Adam heard these words he wept and mourned, and said to Eve, ‘Have you heard what he said; that he will not fulfil any part of what he told you in the garden? Did he really then become king over us?

But we will ask Yahweh, Who created us, to deliver us from his hands.’
Then Adam and Eve spread their hands up to Yahweh, praying and begging Him to drive Satan away from them; so that he may not harm them, and may not force them to deny Yahweh.

Then Yahweh sent His Angel to them at once, who sent away Satan from them. This happened about sunset, on the fifty-third day after they had left the garden.”

Satan’s plan was to destroy man not only spiritually, but also physically (see Transhumanism and Cyborgism, Wake Up! It’s 1984 and Pagan gods).

Man was created in the image of Yahweh Almighty:

“Then Yahweh said, ‘Let Us make mankind in Our image, in Our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So Yahweh created mankind in His own image, in the image of Yahweh He created them; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:26-27

“A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of Yahweh; but woman is the glory of man.” 1 Corinthians 11:7

After corrupting man spiritually in the Garden of Eden, the fallen angels then corrupted him physically, by mating with human women, who gave birth to hybrids, who then mated with other human women, and soon the pre-flood world was filled with different species, completely unlike that which was created by Yahweh. But they did not only corrupt man’s DNA, but also that of all creatures, creating terrestrial and aquatic hybrids.

Only the children of Seth (Adam’s third-born son, who was given Abel’s twin sister Aklia as his wife) who remained on the Holy Mountain retained their nature (the rest were enticed by the children of Cain, who had been separated from the children of Seth, and climbed down the mountain, where they fell into sin and perished), and from them Noah and his family, the last people on the Holy Mountain, were chosen to enter the ark. They survived the flood that destroyed the first world, and repopulated the post-flood world.
In this second world — the post-flood world — the aquatic hybrids (which are amphibious) mated with human women, and, once more, our DNA was corrupted. There are now no people on Earth who represent original man (see Who is the Neanderthal man?).

Let’s see what man originally looked like:

Adam is the Hebrew name for ‘man’, derived from Hebrew אָדָם‎ (adom).

Strong’s Hebrew Concordance: 122. אָדָם (adom) — red, fair, handsome.

The noun ‘adam’ is also the masculine form of the word adamah, which means ‘ground’ or ‘earth’. It is related to the words adom (red), admoni (ruddy), and dam (blood). Adam also comes from the Hebrew word adame, meaning ‘I should be similar’, similar to Yahweh in having been created in His image.

Adam was created from the earth:

“On the sixth day I commanded My wisdom to create man from seven consistencies; one, his flesh from the earth; two, his blood from the dew; three, his eyes from the sun; four, his bones from stone; five, his intelligence from the swiftness of the Angels and from cloud; six, his veins and his hair from the grass of the earth; seven, his soul from My Breath and from the wind.

And I gave him seven natures; to the flesh hearing, the eyes for sight, to the soul smell, the veins for touch, the blood for taste, the bones for endurance, to the intelligence sweetness.

I conceived a cunning way to say, I created man from invisible and visible nature, of both are his life and death and image, he knows speech like some created thing, small in greatness, and again great in smallness, and I placed him on earth, a second angel; honourable, great and glorious, and I appointed him as a ruler to rule on earth and to have My wisdom; and there was none like him on earth of all My existing creatures.

And I gave him a name; from the four component parts, from east, from west, from south, from north, and I appointed for him four special stars, and I called his name Adam, and showed him the two ways; the light and the darkness.

And I told him, ‘This is good and that is bad.’ So that I should learn whether he has love toward Me, or hatred; so that it would be clear which in his race love Me.

For I have seen his nature, but he has not seen his own nature, therefore, through not seeing he will sin greatly. And I said, ‘After sin what is there but death?’

And I put sleep into him and he fell asleep. And I took from him a rib, and created for him a wife, so that death should come to him by his wife, and I took his last word and called her name mother, that is to say, Eve.” Book of Enoch

Adam and Eve had red skin (like red soil), green hair and eyes the colour of the sun.

The evil people who comprise the Illuminati/Freemasons like to taunt us with the truth about our origins and our spirituality — having gone to great pains to conceal our history from us (see Jurassic Park?).

In Katy Perry’s video for the song Dark Horse, set in ancient Egypt, we have examples of what original man looked like, as well as examples of man morphing into a different species.

As man evolved, his skin changed into different colours; as did his eyes — from gold coloured, today we have gray, blue, blue-gray, green, hazel, black, brown, amber, violet, silver; and red, pink and white (albinism).

The red men represent original man. The man in the front of the line represents an evolved version of man

We may not look anything like the beautiful creatures Yahweh created, but we are still His children, and He loves us very much and wants us to enter His Kingdom; to return home to Him.

Pray, children of Yahweh, pray. Like Adam and Eve, always seek His guidance and protection, and that of our Messiah, King and Saviour, Yahshua, and all the Archangels and Angels (see The Great Deception, Shroud of Turin, Keeping the Sabbath holy and The Music Man).

A Mermaid’s Tale

Standard

As discussed elsewhere on this site, mermaids are aquatic hybrids from the pre-flood world (see Pagan gods, Who is the Neanderthal man? Jurassic Park? and Secrets of Fairytales).

The 1989 Hollywood film The Little Mermaid is a salute to fallen angels, who created these creatures through crossbreeding (see Transhumanism and Cyborgism).

Some celebrities are Monarch slaves (see Monarch slaves), used by their puppet masters to promote all things Satanic, and push their agenda for world domination, and to show the world who they belong to (see The cross).

Just as the fallen angels created mermaids, they create Monarch slaves (through their human agents/witches), and one of the ways celebrities are advertised as puppets is through their dressing, especially at award shows.

Birds’ eggs are FOETUSES

Standard

Would you cut open a pregnant cow and rip out its foetus, cook it and eat it? Well, that’s exactly what you’re doing when you eat birds’ eggs.

Birds’ eggs are their foetuses — the bird lays an egg, incubates it, it grows and then hatches. The oval shape of the egg applies the same rules of engineering as an arched bridge; the convex surface can withstand considerable pressure without breaking. This is essential if the egg is not to crack under the weight of a sitting bird. Isn’t Our Creator Almighty Yahweh’s design amazing?

The chicks of the white pelican tell their parents when they are too hot or too cold by giving loud and clear distress calls from inside the eggs. This helps the parents incubate the eggs correctly; they respond to the call by turning and resettling on the egg.

Let’s take a look at the formation of an egg — a chicken’s foetus — the most commonly eaten by humans:

eggcrosssection

The Yolk: The chicken egg starts as an egg yolk inside a hen. A yolk (called an oocyte at this point) is produced by the hen’s ovary in a process called ovulation.

Fertilisation: The yolk is released into the oviduct (a long, spiraling tube in the hen’s reproductive system), where it can be fertilised internally (inside the hen) by a sperm.

The Egg White (albumin): The yolk continues down the oviduct (whether or not it is fertilised) and is covered with a membrane (called the vitelline membrane), structural fibers, and layers of albumin (the egg white). This part of the oviduct is called the magnus.

The Chalazae: As the egg goes down through the oviduct, it is continually rotating within the spiralling tube. This movement twists the structural fibers (called the chalazae), which form rope-like strands that anchor the yolk in the thick egg white. There are two chalazae anchoring each yolk, on opposite ends of the egg.

The Eggshell: The eggshell is deposited around the egg in the lower part of the oviduct of the hen, just before it is laid. The shell is made of calcite, a crystalline form of calcium carbonate.

This entire trip through the oviduct takes about one day.

Growth of the Embryo: The fertilised blastodisc (now called the blastoderm) grows and becomes the embryo. As the embryo grows, its primary food source is the yolk. Waste products (like urea) collect in a sack called the allantois. The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide gas occurs through the eggshell; the chorion lines the inside surface of the egg and is connected to the blood vessels of the embryo.

The Incubation Period: The embryo develops inside the egg for 21 days (the incubation period), until a chick pecks its way out of its eggshell and is hatched.

(There’s a marked difference between chicks that hatch after being naturally incubated and those that are artificially incubated).

Sometimes eggs contain spots of blood; Yahweh forbade us to eat the blood or raw meat of any creature:

“And any Israelite or any foreigner living among you who hunts any animal or bird that may be eaten must drain out the blood and cover it with earth. For the life of every creature is in its blood. That is why I have said to the children of Israel, ‘You must not eat the blood of any creature, because the life of every creature is in its blood; anyone who eats it must be cut off.’” Leviticus 17:13-14

“But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it.” Genesis 9:4

The females of all birds and reptiles are able to fertilise their own eggs without ever being exposed to a male of the species. This is a type of asexual reproduction called parthenogenesis — the growth and development of embryo without fertilisation by a male.

In this type of asexual reproduction the female bird uses her own DNA to fertilise the egg.

However, it is not possible to incubate eggs bought from the supermarket, they will not hatch because they have been cold stored for a period of time and at temperatures which will kill any fertilised egg, no matter what type of fertilisation occurred.

So, next time you’re tempted to eat an egg, remember you’re eating a foetus.

There are also many types of food prepared with eggs: Cakes, pancakes, salads, stews, pies and pies glazed with eggs, kebabs, soups, sandwiches, custards, meringues, desserts, puddings, energy bars, mayonnaise, sherbet, ice-cream, ravioli, egg noodles, pasta, some breads, rolls, croissants, scones, protein shakes, sauces, salad dressing, meatballs, meatloaf, hamburger meat (also, eggshells or whites may be used to clarify soup stocks, consommés, wine, processed juices and coffee drinks).)

Read the ingredients listed on packages and look for words like albumin, globulin, lecithin, livetin, lysozyme, simplesse, vitellin and anything that starts with the prefix ‘ova’ or ‘ovo’. All of those ingredients can contain egg proteins.

Always ask about egg ingredients when ordering food in a restaurant.

If you see the following statements on a label, the food may be cross-contaminated with egg. These warnings are generally voluntary, so some manufacturers may not include this information, even if there is egg present in their facility: ‘may contain eggs’, ‘produced on shared equipment with eggs’, ‘produced in a facility that also processes eggs’.

A balut or balot is a developing duck embryo that is boiled alive and eaten in the shell. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines. They are common food in countries in Southeast Asia, such as Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam (see All animals are Born Free and Meat man is allowed to eat).

Certain shampoos, conditioners/treatments, cosmetics, medications and finger paints also contain eggs.

Wake Up! It’s 1984

Standard

1984 is a famous literary work written by Eric Blair under the pseudonym George Orwell. The novel was written in 1948 (he swapped the last two digits to get ‘1984’), after the Second World War, and published in 1949. It follows a character named Winston Smith who lives in Oceania — one of three world powers (the other two are Eurasia and Eastasia), and depicts a dumbed down civilisation — fully surveilled, dominated and programmed through sophisticated mind control machinery and methods — an oligarchical ruling class and perpetual war.

The tyranny is epitomised by Big Brother, the quasi-divine Party leader who enjoys an intense cult of personality, but may not even exist. Big Brother is a handsome, smiling man in a fine suit who spies on you because he knows what’s best for you. He and the Party justify their oppressive rule in the name of a supposed greater good.
The Party’s themes: War is Peace, Ignorance is Strength and Freedom is Slavery.

Here’s a synopsis:

Big Brother Throughout Airstrip One: In Airstrip One, a province of Oceania (a dystopian society comprising the Inner Party, the Outer Party, and the proles), Winston (member of the Outer Party) sees posters showing a man gazing down over the words ‘BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU’ everywhere he goes. Big Brother is the face of the Party. The citizens are told that he is the leader of the nation and the head of the Party, but Winston can never determine whether or not he actually exists. In any case, the face of Big Brother symbolises the Party in its public manifestation; he is a reassurance to most people (the warmth of his name suggests his ability to protect), but he is also an open threat (one cannot escape his gaze). Big Brother also symbolises the vagueness with which the higher ranks of the Party present themselves — it is impossible to know who really rules Oceania, what life is like for the rulers, or why they act as they do. Winston thinks he remembers that Big Brother emerged around 1960, but the Party’s official records date Big Brother’s existence back to 1930, before Winston was even born (his job at the Ministry of Truth is to rewrite past newspaper articles, so that the historical record always supports the current party line.).

The Glass Paperweight and St. Clement’s Church: By deliberately weakening people’s memories and flooding their minds with propaganda, the Party is able to replace individuals’ memories with its own version of the truth. It becomes nearly impossible for people to question the Party’s power in the present when they accept what the Party tells them about the past — that the Party arose to protect them from bloated, oppressive capitalists, and that the world was far uglier and harsher before the Party came to power. Winston vaguely understands this principle. He struggles to recover his own memories and formulate a larger picture of what has happened to the world. Winston buys a paperweight in an antique store in the prole district that comes to symbolise his attempt to reconnect with the past. Symbolically, when the Thought Police arrest Winston at last, the paperweight shatters on the floor. The old picture of St. Clement’s Church in the room that Winston rents above Mr. Charrington’s shop is another representation of the lost past. Winston associates a song with the picture that ends with the words: ‘Here comes the chopper to chop off your head!’ This is an important foreshadow, as it is the telescreen hidden behind the picture that ultimately leads the Thought Police to Winston, symbolising the Party’s corrupt control of the past.

The Place Where There Is No Darkness: Throughout the novel Winston imagines meeting O’Brien in ‘the place where there is no darkness’. The words first come to him in a dream, and he ponders them for the rest of the novel. Eventually, Winston does meet O’Brien in the place where there is no darkness; instead of being the paradise Winston imagined, it is merely a prison cell in which the light is never turned off. The idea of ‘the place where there is no darkness’ symbolises Winston’s approach to the future; possibly because of his intense fatalism (he believes that he is doomed no matter what he does), he unwisely allows himself to trust O’Brien, even though inwardly he senses that O’Brien might be a Party operative.

The Telescreens: The omnipresent telescreens are the book’s most visible symbol of the Party’s constant monitoring of its subjects. In their dual capability to blare constant propaganda and observe citizens, the telescreens also symbolise how totalitarian government abuses technology for its own ends instead of exploiting its knowledge to improve civilisation.

The Red-Armed Prole Woman: The red-armed prole woman whom Winston hears singing through the window represents Winston’s one legitimate hope for the long-term future; the possibility that the proles (the rejects of the Party) will eventually come to recognise their plight and rebel against the Party. Winston sees the prole woman as a prime example of reproductive virility; he often imagines her giving birth to the future generations that will finally challenge the Party’s authority.

During the war, the author worked for the British Broadcasting Company at the Ministry of Information, on which he modelled the Ministry of Truth, and where he got the idea for Newspeak, a fictional language which stands for the Party over its citizens; they will determine what the people can feel or do based on one’s vocabulary, since, theoretically, one cannot do, think or feel something unknown. Consequently, by simplifying the language through elimination of unnecessary words (such as antonyms and synonyms), communication would become more effective.

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.” — p 46

Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning after the Second World War, with the intention of describing a society that would soon become reality for the world, and one that was already true for the people of East Germany and the Soviet Union.

Today, England is the most watched country in the world, with surveillance cameras everywhere, and in China and North Korea your neighbour is a government informant, and the people live in fear. In Africa, plainclothes policemen pose as students in university lecture halls and mingle with crowds, ready to pounce and arrest ‘dissidents’.

We are being watched via our emails, phone calls, text messages, social forums such as Facebook and Twitter — where people freely share intimate details of their private lives — they monitor the websites we visit, and control our access to information.

News is propaganda, and the purpose of placing symbolic images in videos (film and music) is to clog up neuro-transmitter functions, as well as interfere with brain hemispheric responsibilities. It is always easier to brainwash with music than any other medium, since a certain word can become a trigger for a song you heard, even as a child, to play in your head, as it is ingrained in your memory (see The Music Man, Age of the TV slaves and Skyfall, a short analyis).

Subliminal: existing or operating below the threshold of consciousness; being or employing stimuli insufficiently intense to produce a discrete sensation but often being or designed to be intense enough to influence the mental processes or the behaviour of the individual: a subliminal stimulus; subliminal advertising.

Subliminal messages are hidden suggestions that only your subconscious mind perceives. They can be audio, hidden in music, a speech or commentary; or visual, flashed across a screen so fast that you don’t consciously see them or airbrushed or incorporated into a picture, painting or design. Vibrato is the tremulous effect imparted in some vocal or instrumental music, such as opera and jazz. The cycle-per-second range causes people to go into an altered state of consciousness and sometimes have fantasies.

When words and images are presented below the threshold of our consciousness there is, by definition, no awareness of the stimulus and thus no opportunity to consciously control our response. Reason is detracted.

Regarding visual imagery, words like ‘sex’ and ‘death’ may be found subtly imprinted in paintings, ads, commercials and magazine covers, and also pictures of skulls, violent crime, male and female genitalia, and people engaging in sexual activity. Such images would not be accepted if they were perceived by our conscious minds. But when presented with sufficient subtlety, most people are influenced and the intentionally solicited reaction is produced.

Words and sounds are also presented with similar subtlety, heard and received without being consciously perceived.

By use of subliminal perception, the governments of the world get their citizens to blindly obey their laws. The goal of subliminal perception is to flash messages on screen quickly to cause the subconscious mind to record them without even being perceived and analysed by the conscious mind.

“Subliminal perception is a deliberate process created by which you receive and respond to information and instructions without being consciously aware of the instructions.” — Steve Jacobson, Mind Control in the United States

The coercive of fear and desire are used constantly and effectively by governments, marketing campaigns and advertising agencies — create a fear in people’s minds and then offer a solution to calm that fear.

Predictive programming is also used to condition the masses:

“The theory proposes that public media (such as films, television, news casts, etc.) are deliberately seeded with subtle clues to future social, political, or technological changes. According to the theory, when the relevant change is later introduced into the world, the public has become used to the idea through exposure, and therefore passively accepts it rather than offering resistance or opposition. Predictive programming is therefore thought to be a means of propaganda or mass psychological conditioning that operates on a subliminal or implicit level.” — Wikipedia, Predictive Programming

And Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP):

Is a method of influencing brain behaviour (the ‘neuro’ part of the phrase) through the use of language (the ‘linguistic’ part) and other types of communication to enable a person to ‘recode’ the way the brain responds to stimuli (that’s the ‘programming’) and manifest new and better behaviours. Neuro-Linguistic Programming often incorporates hypnosis and self-hypnosis to help achieve the change (or ‘programming’) that is wanted.

“The psychological mechanism that transforms energy is the symbol.” — Carl Jung (1875-1961)

“A symbol can act in two ways. First, it can be used to focus and project your energy through it. Second, a symbol can function as a magnifier and transmitter of energy, even if you are not focusing attention on the symbol. Symbols do have a life force of their own. They are mini-transmitting stations for subtle energies that are infused in our reality. Each symbol interacts with your energy field, constantly generating a force field that strengthens you.” — Sacred Space by Denise Linn

Free speech can be weaponised. This purpose is served through the comment sections of online publications, which we invariably use to attack each other verbally and spew racism, bigotry and hatred into cyberspace.

The world is under a spell. A ‘spell’ is not a brew consisting of items collected in a scavenger hunt and used to hex an enemy. To ‘cast a spell’ is to hypnotise; we are hypnotised through signs and symbols and the ‘spellings’ or ‘spells’ of words: Acronyms, anagrams, lexigrams, palindromes, homonyms (homophones and homographs), pictogrammes or pictograms/pictographs, ideograms/ideographs; and artifacts that hold spiritual significance (see The truth about Santa Claus and Secrets of Fairytales). The cross is the most powerful example of a lexigram and artifact used since antediluvian times (see The cross).

“To cast a spell is to project energy through a symbol.” — The Spiral Dance by Starhawk

A spell can only be ‘broken’ when one understands the true meaning of words and symbols.

Take the word Abracadabra, used by magicians in their conjuring acts:

In Genesis (called Beresheet in Hebrew), the 2nd word is bara (masc. past tense ‘created’). When this verb is conjugated to future 1st person, it becomes ‘ebra’. The word is prefixed with an alef, the middle root letter is dropped, and the suffix maintains the masculine definition. Now do the same with ‘dbra’. The root is DBR (or daber). Remember Hebrew is almost all consonants, and is very phonetic. The letters would be dalet, bet, resh — pronounced ‘daber’. The middle word, ‘ki’, is chaf and yud (pronounced roughly KE or KA). When you put the words together it becomes ‘ebra ki dbra’, meaning ‘I will create (that which) I speak’.

Magic is forbidden in the Scriptures:

“Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.” Deuteronomy 18:10-11

These magicians get their powers from evil forces; from Satan, fallen angels and Nephilim (demons), who want to be like Yahweh. Use of this word is BLASPHEMOUS, as only Yahweh can create life and resurrect.

Although the words Hocus Pocus are used to mean trickery, it is one of the oldest terms used specifically by conjurers and illusionists as a magical incantation. It is derived from the Norse magician/demon Ochus Bochus, and the incantation is used to summon this evil spirit to assist with magic during rituals.

The magical phrase Shazam is an acronym for all the ancient powers that influence those bestowed with the ability of Shazam — to magically/alchemically transform boy to man (or man to god: the Great Work). These powers are: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, Mercury.

Open Sesame is an Anglicised bastardisation of the magic words that opened the cave in the Arabian tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. The original word is ‘Simsim’, and it is the name of a demon that was the gatekeeper of the cave.

The name features in Sesame Street, an American children’s television series featuring muppets/puppets; and sesame seeds. Alam Simsim is the Egyptian co-production of Sesame Street. Simsim is also another word for sesame seeds.

The words Sim Sala Bim was used in magic by Dante the Magician aka Harry August Jansen, one of the most well known magicians of the early 20th century. He utilised the phrase as a means of acknowledging applause, as well as for the title of his touring magic shows. He claimed the words meant ‘a thousand thanks’, but in reality it is the name of a demon or genie, which he invoked to assist him in the evil rituals he performed, and to which he attributed the applause.

Sim Sala Bim also features in a German nursery rhyme: High On A Branch A Cow.

Alakazam is another word used during stage magic; and also the name of a demon. One of the Pokemon (Pocket Monsters, an animated television series) creatures is named after it. Alakazam also features is in LL Cool James song Lounging (Who Do You Love?): “…But your honey ran away like busto-alakazam.” Busto is a Castilianised form of Asturian-Leonese Bustu, of the same origin. Busto (and its equivalent Bustu) is one of the commonest place names of northwestren Iberia; it is the mane of a demon worshipped as a god in that region. This is an invocation of these evil spirits.

Presto, used by magicians to summon unseen demons during magic rituals, is derived from the Latin word praestare: apply, bring to bear; fulfil; excel, surpass, be outstanding; furnish, supply, make available; it is better. So basically invoking demons to facilitate the transformation during Satanic rituals of magic.

The Beatles’ song Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da:

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly, “Girl I like your face”
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built a home, sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built a home, sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones, hey

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah
La la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun take ob-la-di-bla-da

In every advancement of Desmond and Molly’s relationship, Molly repeats the mantra ‘Obladi oblada’, followed by ‘brahlala’ and a couple of ‘life goes ons’.

This is clearly an incantation and invocation of the demon Obladi Oblada to facilitate the magic. In the last verse, Desmond tries the mantra and is transformed into a woman. It is a transformation spell.

An enchantment or incantation is done by chanting. The word ‘charm’ is from Latin carmen, meaning ‘song, verse, incantation’. Songs are used to cast spells.

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo (also called the Magic Song) is a novelty song written in 1948 and featured in the 1950 animated Disney film Cinderella, performed by actress Verna Fulton. It is also a transformation spell, with which the fairy godmother transforms Cinderella into a princess, a pumpkin into a coach and mice into footmen.

Have you ever heard of the expression, ‘By Jiminy‘? That’s an oath, more technically, a minced oath or a euphemistic oath. What’s being obfuscated is, ‘By Jove’, swearing by the name of Jove, who is Jupiter. This Jupiter is also known as Zeus, who is Satan, the Devil, the Serpent, Dragon and Lucifer.

Jiminy Cricket and Jiminy Christmas are also minced oaths for ‘Jesus Christ’ — the Anti-Messiah (see The Great Deception and All-Seeing Eye.

The nursery rhyme Star Light, Star Bright:

“Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.”

A star is an angel, in metaphor. The star/angel being invoked to grant the wish is Satan.

Stage magic is mostly smoke and mirrors — an illusion:

“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called ‘The Pledge’. The magician shows you something ordinary; a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called ‘The Turn’. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call ‘The Prestige’.” — John Cutter, The Prestige

However, magic is REAL; evil Satanic rituals aimed at harnessing and producing energy. There is fraudulent stage magic, based on tricks and illusion, but even this requires invocations of demons and chanting of spells.

Magicians work by exercising control over demons who are other-dimensional beings. They often do this by calling the demons by name, by means of mental discipline and by leveraging symbols that are both concrete and imagined, as drawn in the air itself or expressed through other gestures. Sometimes implements like bells, candles, incense, salt, knives or artifacts of various kinds are used, which are charged spiritually with demonic presence.

Ritual sex and torture and sacrifice and the keeping of a pagan ceremonial calendar is standard practice. None of this is done to impress and audience. It’s not showbusiness. It’s done in environments where there’s a degree of insulation so they are not interrupted. These rituals are conducted to raise power for one purpose or another, to command more demonic authority and dedicate it to their objective, which is really their lying god’s objectives.

“The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (or LBRP) is a ceremonial magic ritual devised and used by the original Order of the Golden Dawn that has become a mainstay in modern occultism. This ritual is considered by many to be a basic preliminary to any other magical work, so much that it was the only ritual, beside initiation rituals, taught to members of the Golden Dawn before they advanced to the Inner Order.” — Wikipedia

Fractal Geometry, the mathematics behind nature, is said to be the basis of our reality, in atoms, planets, stars and galaxies. Geometry is the underlying part of our existence and certain geometrical shapes have the power to reach deep into the unconscious mind and effect subtle changes in the brain and DNA.

Consciousness is the bridge between the brain and space-time geometry, a hyper-dimensional doorway for humanity to experience full potential on earth. Occult geometry buildings are constructed on the basis of an ancient magical belief that a hidden force within the earth can be harnessed. This energy can be absorbed by the correct geomancy of buildings and their magnetic influences used for magical purposes to cast humanity under an occult spell (a demonic trance).

Man has a pineal gland — a tiny organ situated deep within the human brain between the two hemispheres, about the size of a grain of rice and resembling a small pine cone — which is a very important part of the body’s endocrine system.

This gland is actually an eye, known as the ‘third eye’. It is a small eye lacking some of the component parts of the visual eyes, yet an eye just the same, having a rudimentary retina and the ability to perceive light, though not in the same visual sense as the outward eyes.

pineal-gland

The pineal gland produces melatonin and serotonin. This chemical controls the circadian rhythm of the body; it regulates the daily ‘time cycles’. It also functions as the most powerful antioxidant in nature, protecting nuclear and mitochondrial DNA from damage.

When Adam and Eve ate of the Forbidden Fruit, their ‘eyes were opened’, which means their pineal glands or ‘third eyes’ were exposed to the spiritual realm. Before, they were able to communicate with Yahweh and to see Angels in heaven — their pineal glands were open to Divine Light. After their ‘eyes were opened’, they were able to see the fallen angels and demons and to communicate with them — their pineal glands were exposed to a false light/knowledge.

Vaccination of newborns is aimed at destroying the pineal gland. Fluoride also destroys the pineal gland by calcifying and hardening it, and not only shortens life spans and affects several major bodily functions, but also creates a spiritually blinding effect.

Alcohol, cigars, cigarettes, mineral water, drugs, chlorine, caffeine, nicotine, genetically modified foods, carbonated drinks, vitamins (supplements), condiments, fast food, processed foods (read your labels to determine the ingredients), medicine, hair and skin products, make-up, nail polish, suntan lotions/sprays, tanning beds, botox, collagen, skin lightening creams/lotions, perfume/cologne, etc, are just some of the poison we ingest — your skin ‘eats’ anything you apply on it — used to destroy our pineal gland. The same companies that manufacture these products are the same ones that concoct medicine; you get sick, you buy their medicine, you go back and use the same products, you get sick again… it’s a vicious cycle.

Use natural oils, such as coconut, olive, avocado, safflower, sunflower, canola, shea butter, jojoba, tea tree, grapeseed, almond and castor on your skin and hair.

The human body is predisposed to heal itself and to exist as a healthy, thriving organism. The immune system is responsible for healing and recovery from illness. Holistic healing with the use of coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, honey, garlic, ginger and urine therapy are also effective and healthy means of curing diseases.

Anti-bacterial soaps are designed to kill off good and harmful bacteria, thereby effectively stripping your body of its external defence mechanism.
And artificial fertilisers and pesticide sprays are POISONOUS — use manure and organic pesticides instead, or natural methods of pest control; such as crop rotation, intercropping, crop diversity and integrating predatory insects into a farm, such as ladybirds or predatory mites, to help kill off pests. We also poison ourselves and our livestock and pets by vaccinating them and spraying them with pesticides (use organic pest repellent sprays).

Hair is an antenna that can receive and transmit energy; the longer the hair, the more powerful the transmission (through natural hair). This is why people of all nations are encouraged to weaken their hair, or antennas; with extensions, chemicals, heat application, colouring and cutting, in order to destroy our ability to communicate with the Spiritual realm — Angels, Archangels, Yahweh and Yahshua, which is our Divine birth right.

The wax used to twist natural hair into dreadlocks is TOXIC. Wax acts as a glue which holds the strands of hair in place and inhibits movement. It is also hydrophobic, meaning it is not easily removed from your hair just by normal washing, since it cannot dissolve in water. To remove wax you will need to literally melt it out with very hot water (this method will likely take multiple attempts to remove most of it).

It is best to allow hair to twist naturally or coax it without using any gels or pomades. And always air-dry your hair after washing — do not apply any heat to it.

Through vaccination, scientists are creating autistic children. There has been an alarming rise in the number of babies across the globe diagnosed with autism in recent years.

A vaccine is a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of the disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.

These medications are forced upon us as soon as we emerge from the womb, but are, on the contrary, extremely harmful and completely unnecessary.

Our bodies are created with an immune system, which, although not fully developed in babies, only needs to grow stronger with the process of time. So we do not need biological preparations to ‘boost’ our immunity against diseases.

The vaccine-autism debate has been going on for years. It has been claimed that the MMR vaccine (an immunisation vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella) is responsible for intestinal inflammation that leads to translocation of usually non-permeable peptides to the bloodstream and, subsequently, to the brain, where they affect development.

Multiple courts worldwide have ruled in favour of vaccines causing autism, brain damage and other complications, that include the MMR vaccine.

Concocting medications that cause adverse long-term neurodevelopment effects is done intentionally, with the aim of creating ‘zombies’, in a bid to ‘cull the herd’ — reduce the human population to a certain amount of functioning people who can easily be controlled; in preparation for the New World Order.

The only solution? Opt out of vaccines and the recommended vaccine schedule.

We are being conditioned into accepting government spying through a myriad of television reality shows, such as Big Brother, which glamourise voyeurism and normalise constant surveillance; in a bid to entrench the doctrines of the Illuminati’s ideal of a New World Order, featuring a One World Government, Single Currency and One World Religion (sun worship).

 

Wake up. Big Brother is watching.

The Evil of Tattoos

Standard

“Do not cut your bodies for the dead nor print any marks on yourselves; I Am Yahweh.” Leviticus 19:28

The origin, meaning and purpose of the tattoo is paganism, demonism, shamanism and mysticism.

Famous witch and author Laurie Cabot writes of the tattoo:

The origins of tattooing came from ancient magical practices… — Laurie Cabot, Power of the Witch, cited in Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated by Dr. Cathy Burns, p. 301

The actual tattooing process, which involved complex ritual and taboos, could only be done by priests and was associated with beliefs which were secrets known only to members of the priestly caste… Hambly concluded that, historically, tattooing had originated in connection with ancient rites of scarification and bloodletting, which were associated with religious practices intended to put the human soul in harmony with supernatural forces and ensure continuity between this life and the next. — Gilbert, Steve, Tattoo History: A Source Book, p. 158

The tattooist used the tattoo as a point of contact or inlets into the spiritual world; the tattoo was a medium for pagan spiritualism and pagan invocations. Even today, the tattoo is believed to be a bridge into the supernatural world.

During the tattooing ritual, the shamans would recite ancient incantations and burn incense to invoke evil spirits in order to attach them to the tattoo. These demons would then manipulate the person via the tattoo.

The designs used in tattooing are symbolic and usually associated with certain ancient tribes, cultures and religious beliefs; and are usually intricate. It was a very ancient and very general custom to carry marks on the body in honour of their object of their worship — in honour of different idols. It was also common for soldiers to get tattoos before battle, to ‘protect’ them from harm and ensure their victory over their enemies. Since tattoos originate from paganism, they are linked to the deities (pagan gods, goddesses and demons) worshipped by these people.

When you get a tattoo, even without having the incantations recited, it will attract these demons to you, and they will influence you and work their evil in your life.

The ruling elite, who are Freemasons, do not tattoo themselves; tattoos are for the ignorant, the masses or ‘cattle’ as they refer to them, who do not understand their spiritual significance.

Popular tattoos are dragons, snakes, the cross, crucified Jesus Christ (who is Tammuz, a demon), Mary and Jesus (Astarte and Tammuz), the ‘All-Seeing Eye’, the ‘Eye of Ra’ and ‘Eye of Horus’ which are connected to the Egyptian gods Ra and Horus (see Shroud of Turin, The Serpent who is the Dragon, Pagan feasts, The cross and All-Seeing Eye).

Imprinting figures of flowers, leaves and other designs on various body parts by ink or paint — such as the Muslim and Hindu women do — is also a form of tattooing. There are designs for protection, attraction and repulsion, and traditionally they were painted on in a ritual to invoke the gods to enable the intended purpose.

The dried red leaves of the henna plant are used to make a powder, which is then mixed with a variety of acidic liquids to make a paste that leaves deep, red stains on the skin. This form of tattooing is commonly associated with Indian and Islam weddings and bridal celebrations.
The bride’s hands and feet are embellished with lacy and intricate designs that fade over the weeks following the wedding.
This practice is intended to draw the attention and blessings of the gods to the bride and groom.

However, fallen angels and demons CANNOT bestow blessings, as they are EVIL.

There is a reason why Our Heavenly Father, Yahweh Almighty, Who loves us and wants us to escape the pitfalls of this life so we can enter His kingdom, forbade us to tattoo ourselves.

Will you obey His will?

P.S.: Those of you who already have tattoos and are wondering how to get rid of them, and cannot afford to laser them off (although this process causes scarring) pray to Yahweh, Yahshua, Archangels and Angels, and ask Them to heal you and free you of any connection to evil spirits you have acquired through your tattoo. And ask Them to bless you so that you may no longer be influenced by these evil beings.
Be blessed.

Welcome to Oblivion

Standard

“As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37

The pre-flood world was a highly advanced civilisation, whereby transhumanism was commonplace. There were cyborgs, bionics, hybrids — both terrestrial and aquatic — and aircrafts, submarines and spacecrafts that were far more sophisticated than those we have been availed in this world. That is not to say the technology is not available, they simply choose to feed it to us in small doses. During that time, there were missions to the moon, and commercial space flights to transport average joes to it; where they had built a huge airport, complete with a hotel; and houses, research centres, hospital, bank, temples, cemetery, gold mines and eductional centres for those who lived there permanently.

The pilots were cyborgs, who controlled aircrafts and spacecrafts with their minds. They had tubes connected to their mouths and their eyes and to the centre point of their heads. The tubes were flying devices and were attached to the neurons of their minds, which would send out a particle ray that would operate computers that would lift the spacecraft or aircraft into the air (see Transhumanism and Cyborgism), and those willing to make the trip were encouraged to submit to operations whereby they were fitted with computer chips and other devices, effectively turning them into transhumans, in order to be able to survive on the moon without the cumbersome spacesuits astronauts wear.

The expeditions to the moon involved mining for gold — they used this precious metal to generate heat and electricity in the buildings on the moon, and to fuel their spacecrafts (there is so much gold on the moon, it amounts to mountains).

And they carried water from Earth and recycled it for use by those who lived there.

The 2013 futuristic film Oblivion gives us an insight of how commercial space travel will become accessible in the near future. The movie is set in the year 2077, sixty years after earth has become uninhabitable after an ‘alien invasion’ (see Aliens are Demons!), and only a handful of people left on the planet, with other survivors having since relocated to a fictional planet called Titan — suggestive of the Illuminati’s ambition to get mankind to live on other planets other than the one Yahweh gave us as our home.

The film also promotes cryonics, which is a ridiculous theory; after the soul and spirit leave the body, they cannot return (see The Body, the Soul and the Spirit and Where do we go when we die?). And the only way these bodies can achieve locomotion is through a Satanic ritual to enable demons to possess them.

Oblivion is a story of humans struggling to survive in an environment controlled by technology, which is fast becoming a reality.

Remnants of pre-flood missions to the moon have been captured on film, despite elaborate efforts to cover up the facts:

One of the photographs taken by the Cassiopeia probe on the so-called dark side of the moon. The photo reveals a structure in the Schroedinger crater near the southern lunar polar region.
The photographs are indistinct, due in part to the orbital distance of the probe and interference from ionised moon dust hanging in clouds above the crater floor, but a regular shape — clearly shaped like the swastika — can be discerned in them, located slightly to the side of a circular crater approximately 1.5 kilometres in diameter, itself situated inside a larger, irregular depression.

Swastika shaped building on the moon

Swastika shaped building on the moon. The swastika is a cross known as the ‘Jaina Cross’, used in ancient sun worship to represent the course of the sun in the heavens (see The cross and Sun worship)

Pyramids on the moon

Pyramids on the moon. There are also three other pyramids on the moon that mirror the three largest in Giza, Egypt. Pyramids with the exact relative dimensions of Egyptian pyramids act as an effective resonator of randomly polarised microwave signals which can be converted into electrical energy. The Great Pyramid of Giza, which is uncapped, is believed to be a machine. A machine that would be turned on once the capstone was in place. A machine that by its very nature would boost the spiritual consciousness of planet earth and its inhabitants by raising the vibrational levels

Below are images of the last pre-flood spacecraft to fly to the moon, before the earth was destroyed:

spaceship Moon

The spacecraft was huge, and able to carry hundreds of passengers:

spaceship Moon1

The mystery continues with the statement of William Rutledge, a retired former NASA employee:

Mr. William Rutledge (retired) claims he was on a special NASA mission and involved with NASA in the late 1970s.

Rutledge claims to have worked on at least two missions to the Moon, including the failed Apollo 19, and the Apollo 20, which he says was launched in August of 1976 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

Both of these missions, according to Rutledge, were ‘secret joint space missions’ resulting from collaborations between U.S. and Soviet governments. They do not appear on any roster of NASA missions.

Forays into space are simply attempts at seeking and communicating with fallen angels.

All animals are Born Free

Standard

“Yahweh will not judge a single animal because of man, but will judge the souls of men according to how they treat their animals in this world; for men have a special place.

And as every soul of man is numbered, similarly, animals will not perish, nor all spirits of animals which Yahweh created, until the great judgement, and they will accuse man, if he treated them cruelly.

Whoever defiles animals defiles his own soul.

For man brings clean animals to make sacrifice for sin, so that he may have a cure for his soul. And if they bring for sacrifice clean animals, and birds, man has a cure, he cures his soul.

All that is given to you for food, bind it by the four feet, to make good the cure, to cure the soul. But whoever kills an animal without wounds (for sport; not for food or in self-defense), kills his own soul and defiles his own flesh.

And he who injures any animal whatsoever, in secret, it is an evil practice, and he defiles his own soul.” Book of Enoch

Cruelty to animals, birds, reptiles, fish and other creatures is commonplace. Whether for research, in the name of ‘science’ and ‘progress’ (this includes dissecting live frogs in science labs), for entertainment — in zoos, game parks and circuses, or as pets in our homes or businesses, it is wrong, and terribly unfair, to imprison and enslave any creature.

Bestiality is also cruelty to animals; it is an evil, unholy and unnatural practice, which defiles animals and is forbidden by Yahweh.

“Anyone who lies with an animal is to be killed.” Exodus 22:19

“Do not lie with an animal and defile yourself with it; a woman must not present herself to an animal to lie with it; that is a perversion.” Leviticus 18:23

How would you enjoy living in a cage, or a small confined space, so that selfish, unfeeling giants (for that is how animals perceive us) can gawp at you at will? Have you ever considered the trauma caused to these creatures when they are captured and enslaved for our pleasure? These enslaved creatures never get to bathe or walk in sunshine after their capture.

Here’s an article that will give you an idea of how painful and terrifying it is for animals to be separated from their families, and how their families deal with the loss (excerpt from The Girl With No Name by Marina Chapman with Vanessa James and Lynne Barrett-Lee):

How long had I been living among the towering trees with my monkey family? It was impossible to tell. I had been looking forward to my fifth birthday when I was kidnapped and abandoned, and must have spent almost as many years in my new life. I thought it would never end.

But one day, suddenly, everything in my monkey world changed for ever. Dawn arrived with its usual bustle of activity, but the regular cacophony was pierced by an immediate-danger call from one of the monkeys.

It was like a well-rehearsed fire drill. The birds were suddenly fewer, and those that remained airborne were now flying anxiously, high above us. An eerie silence hovered.

I followed the other animals in the dash to safety — in my case, this meant a hollow tree that had been my home for so long. I crouched there, hidden from sight by some fallen branches, and wondered what monstrous thing could create so much fear.

It was the noise that came first. A loud and unsettling sound that was strangely methodical. The noise grew and was then accompanied by the sight of two white men, dressed in green clothing and carrying, as well as their fearsome glinting machetes, a variety of sacks, guns and nets.

I watched them slash their way through the undergrowth. I had no idea what they wanted or why they seemed so intent on destruction, but that question was soon answered.

The nets, I realised as I watched them, were for catching and stealing whatever creatures they fancied. First, a bright, unwary butterfly was scooped up in an instant, the net secured and slung over a shoulder.

Then their attention turned to birds. I watched as they fired a different sort of net, this time to trap a beautiful parrot. They tethered it by the legs, causing it to flap in a panic, its elegant feathers drifting to the forest floor.

Would I be the next prey they captured? They had the means to catch anything they wanted, from birdlife to insects, lizards and snakes.

No wonder that monkey had been so insistent in his warning. We were clearly all in great danger.

It marked the beginning of the end of my innocence. From that day, I became used to the sound of a machete swishing through the undergrowth.

The fear I felt, being so small and helpless, was of a kind all its own.

Sometimes the hunters came by day and sometimes by night. Other times, they’d pounce just as dusk was falling, shining their torches into the eyes of tired, sleepy creatures whose shrieks would rip through the darkness.

Worse than that, though, was that they sometimes came for monkeys. They would pick off the youngsters. They knew there was a chance the young ones would be too distracted by their games to see and react to them until it was too late.

They would simply be shot with a tranquilliser dart out of the trees and then imprisoned in black nets.

It was agonising to watch the mothers suffering in the weeks afterwards. More than once I saw bereft monkey mothers simply lie down and die.

Horse with saddle horn

Tethered horse with bridle, and shoes

It is plain EVIL to shoe and sore horses, and excruciatingly painful and crippling. ‘Soring’ is the intentional infliction of pain to a horse’s legs or hooves in order to force him to perform an artificial, exaggerated gait — known as the ‘Big Lick’.

Unethical trainers may use painful chemicals or pressure shoeing, which involves cutting the hooves painfully short or inserting a foreign object and nailing the shoe on. In a newer kind of pressure shoeing, trainers force a horse to stand on concrete with blocks of wood or other hard materials taped to the sensitive surface of his hoof until he is in so much pain that he can’t bear weight on his front feet.

Today, judges continue to reward this gait at horse shows, thus encouraging participants to sore their horses and allowing the cruel practice to persist.

Horse breaking or ‘breaking the spirit of a horse’

If you want to tame wild horses, why not befriend them? Be kind and loving, then they will willingly help you by allowing you to ride them. Place a LIGHT saddle on their backs with a SOFT blanket beneath it or, better still, ride them bareback like the Red Indians do.

The Rapa Das Bestas, translated as ‘Shearing Of The Beasts’, takes place over four days in Sebucedo, which is 40km from Santiago de Composetela. Hundreds of wild horses are rounded up and wrestled to the ground for a hair-cut, as part of a 400-year-old Spanish festival.

The festival sees horses herded down from the mountains by Aloitadores, or fighters, who work in teams of three to overpower them.

While the foals are simply marked, the adults have their manes and tails trimmed.

Thousands of visitors descend on the small village to watch the fighters man-handle the wild animals into submission.

Horse racing is another evil, ancient tradition.

Argentinians are particularly cruel to their horses. Here’s a related article:

Polo, a killer for horses, has become fashionable with the new rich and the useless, who have fallen for its sly marketing as a sport for kings. Polo teams are snapped up by socially insecure wannabes. Polo matches are sponsored by arms dealers and attended by fading royalty desperate for their pictures in the papers, hired starlets, retired generals thirsting for free drinks, shady businesswallahs hoping to cadge contacts over alcohol and, alas, the press.

Polo has been declared one of the world’s most dangerous sports, both for the player and his mount. But while the rider elects to play, the horse has no choice. With so many players and horses on a field hurtling at 30 miles per hour, needing to stop on a dime and turn quickly, anything can happen.

The rider wears a protective helmet with a face guard, knee high riding boots, gloves, wristbands, knee pads and spurs. The stirrup irons are heavier than normal and their leathers wider and thicker to aid players standing in the stirrups. The only protective gear for the horse is polo wraps from the knee to the ankle. It’s not unusual to see a horse and rider tumble and roll together as they hit the ground.

Collisions are common. Mallets often hit and hurt both riders and mounts as well as trip the speeding horses. Falling and breaking ankles is common. But while injured riders are rushed to hospital, the best an injured horse can expect is a bullet in the brain.

Although full-sized adults, polo mounts are called ponies. The demands on a polo pony are severe. He needs speed, stamina, agility and maneuverability to be able to stop, turn and spring forward, all of which is far harder than simply running which is natural to the animal. Training the horse to cope under extreme pressure generally begins at age three and lasts from about six months to two years. It starts with ‘breaking in’ or taming the horse to submit to his handler. Tamers use techniques including blows and bucking, gagging, pulling at the mouth and whipping. Sometimes training is hurried. If a mare is good, she is usually highstrung and training in a hurry can trigger collapse. The animal is then deemed unfit for use and killed.

Cruelty continues on the field. In order to compel greater obedience, riders attach a small spiked wheel at the end of the spur called a rowel which digs into the animal’s undersides, causing excruciating pain and bloody gashes from being rowelled too hard.

Another so-called performance enhancing practice is blood doping. This entails giving the horse a blood transfusion in the mistaken belief that this increases energy. The blood is taken earlier from the horse and stored. During the match, the horse is stripped after each chukka, cooled down and injected with its own blood before returning to the game.
Sometimes the heart of the horse ruptures or literally bursts from extreme exertion.

Frequently, players tire out their mounts by pulling them up too suddenly or frighten them in very rough ride offs. A fearful horse will stop short and, no matter how vicious the whip, hesitate to continue. Yanking the mouth to turn can often break it, while gag bits routinely cut it. Everytime the reins are jerked, the pain intensifies, provoking the animal to act up. Should the rider get angry with the horse, the problem escalates. In one case, a polo pony had her tongue ripped off by the bit.

The pony’s mane is roached — completely shaved — and its tail braided so that it will not snag the rider’s mallet. Considered an obstruction, long tails are often docked with their ends being cut off to make them V-shaped. The operation is painful as the tail vertebrae are connected with the brain and spinal column.

Horses play during only one season of the year, when they are carted all across the country. Overstabling the rest of the year can lead to polo ponies becoming bored, lonely and aggressive. The expense of maintenance leads to corners being cut. For instance, regular shoeing is overlooked during the non-playing season. Shoes left too long put a strain on the tendons, increasing fragility of the legs. Since saddles are expensive, they are not made for each horse. Instead, owners make do with one size for all resulting in ill-fitting tacks with sharp bits causing injury to the animal.

What happens to a polo pony past his prime? He is either shot or sold to riding clubs and schools who underfeed and overwork him or her.

The Toro Jubilo (Fire Bull Festival) is an annual festival in the town of Medinaceli in central Spain. The fiesta is said to date back 400 years but the dictator General Franco banned it in 1962 after the British press revealed its cruelty to the world. However, the ban was lifted in 1977 and the festival revived in Medinaceli, which lies 100 miles north-east of Madrid.

Celebrated every November, the twisted revelry centres around the prolonged torture of a bull by attaching flares of burning pitch to its horns and then goading it as the poor creature thrashes around in terror and desperate agony. Small children clap and cheer along with their parents as 30 men drag the bull into the town square by a rope wound round its horns.

The town square is scattered with sand to turn it into a makeshift bullring. Men then light a circle of five bonfires to complete the transformation while a brass band plays in the background.

The bull fights with every muscle in its body as the men force it to the ground, tie it to a wooden post and strap a wood and steel frame to its horns:

Toro Jubilo2

Attached to this grotesque headdress are torches soaked in pitch — a mixture of turpentine and sulphur. The men then smother the bull’s face and neck in mud to stop its fur catching fire before igniting the torches.

When they are aflame the bull is cut free from the post and begins to run around the ring, furiously shaking its head as red-hot droplets fall from the torches on to its face. It thrashes about the makeshift bullring in a desperate bid to extinguish the flames.

Toro Jubilo

Young men play at matadors, taunting the bull with coats spread open like capes. When the animal charges they leap over a safety fence, the spectators cheering them all the way.

Toro Jubilo4

After 45 minutes the bull is exhausted as well as petrified. It comes to a halt with breath steaming out of its nostrils, saliva dripping from its mouth and the hide on its flanks charred black.

When the torches finally burn out, hundreds of fire crackers are set off, terrifying the bull further before it is led out of the ring to be slaughtered.

Spanish animal rights groups say there are numerous fiestas based on animal cruelty around the country.

Skijoring, a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse, a dog (or dogs) is another evil practice. Skijoring is derived from the Norwegian word skikjøring, meaning ‘ski driving’. The skier wears a skijoring harness, the dog wears a sled dog harness, and the two are connected by a length of rope.

Animals should generally be kept indoors during winter, as the cold affects their health adversely. Trotting about in the snow will expose their noses, ears, cheeks, chins, paws and hooves to frostbite. For this reason, certain animals go into hibernation or torpor.

The Dukha people, also known as the Tsaatans, who live in the remote, deep forest of northern Mongolia, are reindeer herders.

Reindeer farming

The reindeer have ropes tied around their necks, and are tethered

As a result of this cruel practice, the number of the reindeer has dwindled dramatically due to diseases, as they are wild animals, and cannot fend for themselves while in captivity.

The Dhuka continue to exploit the reindeer in summer.

For some years now, travel companies have been regularly offering options to visit a Dukha community as part of a Mongolian itinerary.

But getting to their remote habitat requires advanced horse-riding skills, as well as days traveling on a bumpy road by car that many visitors aren’t prepared or equipped to undertake.

This has prompted a small group of reindeer herders to come down from their traditional area to set up camp near the popular Lake Khovsgol tourist areas.

The reindeer, in particular, have proved to be a big hit among visitors who happily pay 5,000 Mongolian Tugrik ($2.50) for a one-off photo opportunity.

But their efforts have also attracted scrutiny from some travelers concerned about the reindeer being used to lure tourists.

So much so that some travel companies, such as Melbourne, Australia-based Intrepid Travel, now discourage visiting the tribe.

“Many travelers are of the opinion that this area isn’t the best environment for the reindeer as they’re native to much colder climates and are brought to Lake Khovsgol so the herders can benefit from tourism,” says Timur Yadamsuren, local guide and country manager for Intrepid Travel in Mongolia.

“For these reasons Intrepid Travel doesn’t recommend this activity.”

Some have accused the Dukha of abusing the reindeer for profit.

Using animals for experiments: Panbanisha, a bonobo at the Great Ape Trust in Des Moines, uses a computer monitor with more than 400 lexigrams, to speak to Liz Pugh, a researcher at the center. If Yahweh wanted animals to speak, He would have enabled them to do so. Are you more powerful than He?

In the Xiongsen Bear and Tiger Mountain Village near Guilin in south-east China, the world’s biggest battery farm for rare animals, live cows and pigs are thrown to tigers to amuse visitors.

In Qingdao Zoo (Eastern China), visitors can engage in ‘tortoise baiting’, where tortoises are kept inside small rooms with elastic bands around their necks so that they are unable to retract their heads. Visitors are allowed to throw coins at them. The marketing claim is that if you hit one of the tortoises on the head and make a wish, it will be fulfilled.

Zoo animals are under physical and mental stress and often exhibit abnormal or aggressive behaviour as a result. For example, elephants have been recorded displaying stereotypical behaviour in the form of head-bobbing, swaying back and forth, trunk swaying or route tracing, bears pace the surrounds of their enclosure, and wild cats  groom themselves obsessively.

The only creatures we should keep as pets are those that can roam freely without injuring themselves or others, such as cats or dogs, and, even then, they should be treated in a humane manner, and not kept locked up indoors or chained or confined in kennels.

All the rest belong in their natural habitat, as Yahweh intended.

There are also those who eat live seafood (see Meat man is allowed to eat and The 12 Deadly Sins).

In Korea, eating live baby octopuses (nakji), is called ‘sannakji’ — a live octopus that has been cut into small pieces or prepared whole, and immediately served, usually with a light sesame oil seasoning, with its arms still squirming, sucking, grasping and wriggling on the plate.

In Japan, fish are prepared for sashimi while still alive and are called ‘ikizukuri’, which means ‘prepared alive’. The fish is typically filleted without actually being killed and served while the heart is still beating and the mouth is still gasping. Sometimes the fish is temporarily returned to an aquarium to swim around and recover for a second course. Fish is usually used, but sometimes octopus, shrimp and lobster are used instead.

Sea urchin are prized around the world for their fishy-flavored roe and flesh. Though they are often eaten raw, such as in sushi (typically called ‘uni’), some people prefer to eat them immediately after they are cut open. Scissors are often used to get past the protective spears.

Drunken shrimp is a popular dish in parts of China. It is based on fresh-water shrimp that are placed in a strong liquor, baijiu, and then eaten, often while they are alive.

Ying Yang fish, or ‘dead-and-alive fish’, originated in Taiwan, and consists of a whole live fish which has had some of its flesh deep-fried in such a way that the fish remains alive after the frying process. Some chefs say they prepare the fish this way to demonstrate it freshness to the customer. This dish is also popular in China, where it is served while the head is still fresh and moving.

Frog sashimi consists of serving most of the frog dead (and raw); the meal begins by eating the frog’s fresh, still-beating heart.

Odori ebi, which means ‘dancing shrimp’, is a sashimi delicacy in Japan. It includes live baby pink shrimp wriggling their legs and waving their antenna as they are eaten. The meal is prepared rapidly and quickly served to ensure the shrimp are still alive, and the shrimp are usually dunked in sake. Dancing shrimp are also eaten in Thailand, where they are known as Goong Ten.

Oysters are the most common animal often eaten raw and alive, while still in its liquid-filled half shell.

Tobiko is the Japanese word for flying fish roe. It is most widely known for its use in creating certain types of sushi. The eggs are small, ranging from 0.5 mm to 8 mm, and eaten raw.

Grubs and insects are also eaten alive. One example is the witchetty grub of Australian Aboriginal cuisine, which can be eaten alive and raw or cooked.

All creatures have SPIRITS and were created for a purpose. And that purpose is not to provide you with cheap entertainment! Lobsters, crabs, and other crustaceans experience pain, just like you do.

Crustaceans, which also include prawns and crayfish, are harvested and farmed for human consumption, and are subjected to extreme procedures. Crabs and lobsters have their claws tied and are piled into overcrowded tanks at supermarkets, and live prawns are impaled on sticks for cooking, while lobsters have their legs removed while still alive or are dropped alive in a boiling pot of water for cooking (and their screams of pain are clearly heard).

Testing of cosmetics on animals or using animals to treat venomous bites, by producing an anti-venom, is also cruel.

One example is antivenin, a serum that is commercially produced to neutralise the effects of the injected venom. At special laboratories, healthy horses are injected with increasing amounts of selected snake venom (non-fatal), gradually challenging the horse to make more antibodies. To obtain these antibodies, a small amount of blood is later removed from the horse and the protein antibodies are separated out and purified.
This cruel practice drastically reduces the horse’s lifespan from 20 years to just three or four, and weakens its immune system.

It is also cruel to eat birds’ eggs, as these are their FOETUSES (this includes chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys, peacocks, ostriches, emus and swans), collect and keep seashells, eat fish eggs (caviar, roe), and destroy birds’ nests and bees’ nests, wasps’ nests and spiders’ webs (unless they are inside your house or so close outside that you feel threatened by their presence).

And whipping, flogging, kicking, beating or physically abusing any creature in any way is inhumane and should be outlawed. So should spaying and neutering — all creatures have a right to procreate — and artificial insemination.

Also, the branding of cattle and horses is an unholy and unnecessary practice, as is implanting tracking microchips in pets and livestock, cock fighting, dog fighting and training dogs to be vicious, training service dogs, fox hunting or hunting any other creature for sport.

As Yahweh created all creatures in pairs, so should they live: Male and female. So when buying and raising animals, do so in pairs.

Food farms treat animals despicably:

On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. Most won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter. The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.

The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs — always at the animals’ expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die. The industry journal National Hog Farmer explains, “Crowding pigs pays,” and egg-industry expert Bernard Rollins writes that “chickens are cheap; cages are expensive.”

Cows, calves, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, and other animals live in extremely stressful conditions:

Kept in small cages or jam-packed sheds or on filthy feedlots, often with so little space that they can’t even turn around or lie down comfortably.

Deprived of exercise so that all their bodies’ energy goes toward producing flesh, eggs, or milk for human consumption.

Fed drugs to fatten them faster and keep them alive in conditions that could otherwise kill them

Genetically altered to grow faster or to produce much more milk or eggs than they naturally would (many animals become crippled under their own weight and die just inches away from water and food).

When they have finally grown large enough, animals raised for food are crowded onto trucks and transported over many kilometres through all weather extremes, typically without food or water, to the slaughterhouse. Those who survive this nightmarish journey will have their throats slit, in an inhumane and often botched operation. Many remain conscious when they are plunged into the scalding-hot water of the defeathering or hair-removal tanks or while their bodies are being skinned or hacked apart.

Intensification of the broiler chicken industry started in the late 1950s, when the use of ‘dual purpose’ chickens for egg and meat production ceased and new poultry strains were produced specifically for meat production. The result of the narrowly focused breeding programs has been a bird which grows twice or three times as fast as a normal chicken.

Over 50 years ago it took 98 days for a chicken to grow to 1.6kg. By 1986, due to selective breeding, it only took 37 days. Baby birds, who still chirp and have soft feathers, have the bodies of adult birds. This unnatural growth rate puts enormous pressure on the heart and immature skeleton and is the cause of many health problems.

Lameness caused by dislocation of joints and bone fractures are major and unavoidable consequence of selective breeding for increased growth rates. Many birds are unable to walk or even stand up well, resulting in ‘hockburn’ as they waddle around in the damp ammonia-soaked litter. Skin problems are exacerbated by the progressive build up of moisture and droppings in the litter. Around two per cent of birds die in the sheds from illness, trauma and starvation when they are unable to reach food and water, or are trampled by other birds.

Selective breeding for rapid growth rates has also led to a syndrome associated with inability of the heart to adapt to the rapid increase in the body. Called Acute Death Syndrome (ADS) or Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), the cause of death is heart failure and pulmonary oedema, with the animals essentially drowning due to fluid accumulation in the lungs.

A typical facility may house 300,000 birds at a time with 40,000-60,000 birds per shed. Contracted ‘growers’ for the large companies therefore each grow several million birds annually.

Broiler Chicken Shed

The production system is ‘all-in/all-out’ which means that for the whole of the 5-7 weeks that the birds are in the shed the droppings are allowed to accumulate on the floor. As the chickens grow the air may become polluted with ammonia, dust, bacteria and fungal spores which cause health problems for both people and chickens.

Extreme selection pressure for large breast muscles has further distorted the anatomy of these animals and puts great pressure on their developing legs. They often therefore crouch down with their large breast on the floor of the shed. This frequent contact with the floor of the shed may lead to painful ulceration of the skin known as ‘breast blister’.

Rearing cattle for Wagyu beef or Kobe beef is deplorable — these animals are massaged with sake (Japanese rice wine) and fed beer to ‘make them tender’; which means they are continually in a state of intoxication.

Humanely slaughter animals by cutting through the trachea and oesophagus without stunning or euthanising, like the Hebrews did. Use a very sharp knife and be careful not to nick. (Isolate the animal in an area where it will feel comfortable, trying as much as possible not to alarm it or cause it stress.)

Beekeeping or beefarming is a big business; fifteen to thirty percent of all food crops depend on bees for pollination. Commercial beekeepers transport millions of hives over long distances to track seasonal crops. These journeys clobber the bees with psychological stress, pesticides, disease and related disorders. Even small outfits and hobbyists subject their bees to cruelty such as cutting off the queen’s wings so that she cannot swarm or leave the colony, and larger outfits also have her artificially inseminated on a bee-sized version of the factory farm ‘rape-rack’.

Cutting off the queen bee's wings

Large commercial operations may also take all the honey instead of leaving the required amount that bees need to sustain themselves. They replace the rich honey with a cheap sugar substitute that is not as fortifying. In colder areas, if the keepers consider it too costly to keep the bees alive through the winter, they destroy the hives by pouring gasoline on them and setting them on fire. Also, bees are often killed or have their wings and legs torn off by haphazard handling.

Honeybees originated in the tropics, and winter mortality in temperate zones remains a serious issue. Colonies across the world have been decimated by Colony Collapse Disorder, a result of the abuses that we have wrought against these fascinating creatures. The range of pesticides, fungicides and invasive procedures it takes to make bee hives profitable is staggering and leads to the extermination of many bees.
Bees belong in the wild and should not be factory farmed or even kept/enslaved as a hobby or in small scale farming. We must let nature take its course and stop destroying the diversity of ecological systems.

Salmon and trout are pink in colour, because of the krill they eat and the carotenoids deposited in their body fat; but farmed salmon and trout are fed pellets to dye their skin, which is otherwise naturally grey. In fish farms and bird parks, carotenoids are added to the feed to create a pink colour. A synthetic ‘nature-identical’ version of the carotenoid astaxanthin has been developed, and zoos also use commercial quantities of the natural colour from cultured yeast and algae.

The true colour of a flamingo is white. Flamingo feathers obtain their wonderful rosy pink colour from pigments in the organisms they eat.

The flamingos’ feathers, legs, and face are coloured by their diet, which is rich in alpha and beta carotenoid pigments.

Carotenoids in crustaceans such as those in the flamingo diet are frequently linked to protein molecules, and may be blue or green. After being digested, the carotenoid pigments dissolve in fats and are deposited in the growing feathers, becoming orange or pink.

The amount of pigment laid down in the feathers depends on the quantity of pigment in the flamingo’s diet. An absence of carotenoids in its food will result in new feather growth that is very pale; the existing pigment is lost through molting.

Flamingos in captivity require a special diet to ensure they preserve their striking colors. Zoos use special flamingo pellets enriched with pigment. Captive flamingos also require water so that they can eat by pumping water through their bills, as they do in the wild.

In the wild, flamingos eat algae, crustaceans, brine shrimp, diatoms, and aquatic plants. At the zoo, a special ‘flamingo fare’ is served. To preserve their rosy colour at the zoo, flamingos are fed a commercially prepared diet high in carotenoids. Initially, zoos fed carrots, red peppers, and dried shrimp to flamingos, but it was found that if synthetic canthaxanthin was added to their feed, nesting and breeding were more successful.

Butterfly farming is another cruel practice. It is the breeding of pupae for sale to local butterfly exhibits or for export to zoos and live exhibitions overseas. Rare butterfly breeds are also captured and kept in hot, stuffy greenhouses, either for breeding or for sale. Collecting dead butterflies for framing as decorations is unnatural and cruel.

Animal cafés, where birds, animals and reptiles are enslaved so that humans can ‘pet’ them, are another evil trend.

“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves. We know we cannot be kind to animals until we stop exploiting them — exploiting animals in the name of science, exploiting animals in the name of sport, exploiting animals in the name of fashion, and yes, exploiting animals in the name of food.” — César Chávez
