Sun Worship

Since his fall from grace, Satan’s plan has been to pervert all of Yahweh’s creation, especially man, who is formed in His image. He has lied, seduced, enslaved and misled us. Sun worship, and that of the moon, stars and various planets, has been a pagan practice of ancient civilisations, to date. Satan is worshipped as the sun god.

“You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor worship them; for I, Yahweh your Father, Am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me. And showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me, and keep My commandments.” Exodus 20:4-6

This is the second commandment given to us by Yahweh, it has either been deleted or absorbed into the first by the Catholic Church, which practices idolatry, as a result, the tenth has been split into two, so they still have ‘Ten’ commandments.

The Ten Commandments:

1. I Am Yahweh your Father, Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before Me.

2. You shall not make for yourselves any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them, nor worship them; for I, Yahweh your Father, Am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me. And showing mercy to thousands of those that love Me, and keep My commandments.

3. You shall not take the Name of Yahweh your Father in vain; for Yahweh will not hold him guiltless that takes His Name in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labour, and do all your work. But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahweh your Father; on it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son, nor your daughter, your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor any stranger that is within your gates. For in six days Yahweh made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore, Yahweh blessed the sabbath day, and made it holy.

5. Honour your father and your mother; so that your days may be long on the land which Yahweh your Father has given you.

6. You shall not kill.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.

10. You shall not covet your neighbour’s house, you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbour’s.

Catholic ‘Ten’ Commandments:

1. I am the LORD your God. You shall have no strange gods before me.

2. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.

3. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.
(The Sabbath is the Fourth Commandment by normal count. The day to be kept is no longer mentioned since they changed the Sabbath to Sunday.)

4. Honour your father and your mother.

5. You shall not kill.

6. You shall not commit adultery.

7. You shall not steal.

8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.

9. You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife.

10. You shall not covet your neighbour’s goods.

Let us examine the solar images directly associated with Catholic Mass. The Monstrance or Ostensorium is used to display a round wafer of bread, called the host, which is used in what is called the Mass, Lord’s Supper, Communion or Eucharistic meal. The Catholic believes this wafer of bread turns into the actual body of (the pagan god) Christ when consecrated during the Mass.
The Roman Catholic Church even admits the Monstrance to be a sunburst:

“During the baroque period, it took on a rayed form of a sun-monstrance with a circular window surrounded by a silver or gold frame with rays.” — The Dictionary of the Liturgy

sun-monstrance_png

The most appropriate form (for the monstrance) is that of the sun emitting its rays to all sides (Instructio Clement., 5). [See Altar Vessels: Ostensorium] — 1913 edition of The Catholic Encyclopedia

Yahweh and Yahshua

The Holy Name of our Heavenly Father, Yahweh, the Almighty, the Only True God and Creator of the Heavens and the Earth, the Alpha and the Omega, was removed and replaced with the words ‘Elohim’ (El singular — god; Elohim plural — gods), ‘God’, ‘Adonay’ and ‘Lord’. El and Elohim are the titles given to fallen angels/false gods and their human wives (goddesses). These women were the female descendants of Cain, who became powerful witches.

From the Interpreters Dictionary of the Bible, Volume 1, p. 817, we find the information that El or Elohim simply means demon:

A. In The OT. 1. Daimonism. a. Daimon. The Hebrew equivalent of ‘demon’ (daimon) in the original sense is simply el or elohim (‘elohim), commonly rendered ‘god’.

The words El-Elohim, like the words Baal-Adonay came from the Cannanite vocabulary and worship.

The Encyclopedia Judaica, Volume 7, p. 674, tells us:

Most of these terms were employed also by the Canaanites to designate their pagan gods. This is not surprising; since on settling in the Promised Land the Patriarchs and early Israelites made ‘the language of Canaan’ their own (Isaiah 19:18), the Hebrew language would naturally use the Canaanite vocabulary for terms designating their own Deity.

“I have heard what the prophets say, who prophesy lies in My Name, saying, ‘I have dreamed! I have dreamed!’ How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Yes, they are prophets of the deceit of their own minds. Who devise; plan and scheme, to cause My people to forget My Name through their dreams, which they tell every man to his neighbour, just as their fathers have forgotten My Name for Baal.” Jeremiah 23:25-27

The word Baal simply means Lord, as is shown in Unger’s Bible Dictionary, p. 665:

Lord (Hebrew Adon), an early word denoting ownership; hence, absolute control. It is not properly a (righteous) title… master; of kings, as the lords of their subjects. (4.) Lord. Master, (Greek Kurios) Supreme… (5.) Baal (Master) (As noted above it means Lord) — applied only to heathen deities (gods), or to man as husband, etc…

Baal: Common Canaanite word for master, lord, was one of the chief main deities of the Canaanite Pantheon, now well known from the religious epic literature discovered at Ras Shamra (an Ugarit of the Amarna Letters) from 1921-1937. — Unger’s Bible Dictionary p. 413

YAHWEH, the proper Name of the God of Israel; it is composed of four consonants (YHWH) in Hebrew and is therefore called the Tetragrammaton… — Encyclopedia Britannica, Volume 23, p. 867

It is recorded that the pronunciation of the Name Yahweh began to be suppressed in earnest upon the death of a man named Simeon the Just, a high priest who served in this office in the time span of 310-199 BCE, or about 200 years before the nation of Israel came under the rulership of the Roman Empire.

The Jewish Encyclopedia of 1901, Volume 11, p. 353, points out that this was the turning point, namely the exact time when it became a practice in Israel to no longer pronounce the Name Yahweh.

After Simeon’s death men ceased to utter the Tetragrammaton aloud. (Yoma 30b; Tosef Sotah. xiii.)

The Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Yoma, p. 39b, also verifies that it was upon the death of Simeon the Righteous that all Israel began to no longer pronounce the Name Yahweh.

…When Simeon the Righteous died, with many indications that such glory was no more enjoyed,
his brethren no more dared utter the Ineffable Name…

The Jewish Encyclopedia Volume 9, pp. 162-163, not only confirms this fact, but it shows the strict prohibition and warning to all those who do now adhered to it.

After the death of the High Priest Simeon the Righteous, forty years prior to the destruction of the Temple, the priests ceased to pronounce the Name (Yoma 39b). From that time the pronunciation of the Name was prohibited. ‘Whoever pronounces the Name forfeits his portion in the future world.’ (Sanh. xi. 1)

The Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Kiddushin, p. 71a, openly admits, however, that the Name Yahweh was pronounced by all the children of Israel, both small and great, before the death of Simeon the Just.

Our Rabbis taught: At first [Yahweh’s] Name used to be entrusted to all people. When unruly men increased, it was confided to the pious of the priesthood.

Only the High Priest spoke the Name of Yahweh.

Many teachers in Israel came to believe that the Name Yahweh was too holy to be pronounced, so they began teaching the nation that only the High Priest should utter the name, once a year on the Day of Atonement:

Some time after the return from the captivity, and before the beginning of the Christian era, the Yahdaim (Jews) came to believe that the Holy Name Yahweh was too sacred to be uttered on ordinary occasions. It was said to be pronounced by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement. At other times, when anyone read or quoted aloud from what is called the Old Testament, the word ‘Adonay’ was usually substituted for YAHWEH, and similarly the LXX (Septuagint Version) has ‘Kurios’, the Vulgate ‘Dominus’, and the English Version ‘Lord’, where the Hebrew has YAHWEH. Hebrew was originally written without vowels, but when the ‘vowel points’ were added, the vowels of ‘Adonay’ or ‘Elohim’ were written with YAHWEH, as a direction that these words were to be read instead of the word whose consonants were YAHWEH; thus we find the combinations YeHoWaH and YeHoWiH. At the Reformation, the former being the more usual, was sometimes used as the Name of the Mighty One of Israyl, and owing to ignorance of its history was misread as ‘Jehovah’, a form which has established itself in English, but does not give the pronunciation of the Holy Name it represents. — The Century Bible by Adeney and Bennett, Volume 1, pp. 90-91

The Jewish contains additional information about the pronunciation of Yahweh’s Name being confined to the Temple and spoken only by the priests. Volume 9, pp. 162-163, states:

The pronunciation of the written Name was used only by the priests (Num. vi. 22-27); outside the Temple they used the title ‘Adonai’. (Sotah vii. 6; p. 38a)

Thus says Tosef., Ber. Vi. 23:

Formerly they used to greet each other with the Ineffable Name; when the time of the decline of the study of the Law came, the elders mumbled the Name. Subsequently also the solemn utterance of the Name by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement, that ought to have been heard by the priests and the people according to the Mishnah Yoma, vi. 2, became inaudible or indistinct.

The Prophet Jeremiah warned that this practice of removing Yahweh’s Name would be handed down to us by unfaithful priests, interpreters and scribes, when the Hebrew Scriptures were first translated to Greek, then to Latin, and finally to English.

“How can you say, ‘We are wise, for we have the law of Yahweh’, when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely?” Jeremiah 8:8

The true and sacred Name of our Creator is Yahweh (pronounced ‘Yah’ like a drawing of breath and ‘Weh’ like a release of breath, for He is the Breath of Life), the true and sacred Name of the Messiah, Yahweh’s only begotten Son (Holy Angels and Archangels, Who are also the Sons of Yahweh, were created, not begotten), is YAHSHUA. The Name is derived from Yah — taken from Yahweh — and Shua, which means ‘Salvation’ in Hebrew. YAHSHUA means ‘Yahweh is Salvation’. It is a very powerful Name.

The Holy Name of Yahshua, Our King, Master, Messiah and Saviour, Who was crucified and died for our salvation, so that we may have Eternal Life, was replaced with that of a false god, created by Roman Emperor Constantine during the First Council of Nicaea (modern İznik) in Bithynia, Anatolia (Asian Turkey).

Contrary to popular belief, Roman Emperor Constatine founded Christianity. Prior to his reign, there was no such word, nor a single official imperial religion for the Roman Empire — with multitudes of cults, gods and worship. The Edict of Milan is just one of many absurd forgeries still honoured today to claim that Constantine ‘converted’ to Christianity and somehow lifted the restrictions on Christians. Unfortunately, the groups known as early ‘Christians’ who were persecuted were neither ‘Christian’ nor ‘peaceful’ but actually satanic and human sacrifice cults such as the Sarmatians and Boethusians — the descendants of the bloodthirsty Phoenician traders. The claim that Constantine lifted the ban on these ancestors of the Roman Cult families through any ‘edict’ is highly unlikely.

In 325 CE, Constantine ordered the arrest of all cult leaders of major cults and their forcible attendance at Nicaea in order to form a new official religion — assisted and coordinated with Eusebius of Caesarea — the first Patriarch of Christianity (as Alexander). Up until the First Council of Nicaea, the Roman aristocracy primarily worshipped two Greek gods — Apollo and Zeus — but the great bulk of common people idolised either Julius Caesar or Mithras (The Romanised version of the Persian deity Mithra). Caesar was deified by the Roman Senate after his death (15th March, 44 BCE) and subsequently venerated as ‘the Divine Julius’. The word ‘Saviour’ was affixed to his name, its literal meaning being ‘one who sows the seed’, i.e, he was a phallic god. Julius Caesar was hailed as ‘God made manifest and universal Saviour of human life’, and his successor, Augustus, was called the ‘ancestral God and Saviour of the whole human race’ (Man and his Gods, Homer Smith, Little, Brown & Co., Boston, 1952). Emperor Nero (54-68 BCE), whose original name was Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus (37-68 BCE), was immortalised on his coins as the ‘Saviour of mankind’ (ibid.). The ‘Divine Julius’ as Roman Saviour and ‘Father of the Empire’ was considered ‘God’ among the Roman rabble for more than 300 years. He was the deity in some Western presbyters’ texts, but was not recognised in Eastern or Oriental writings.

Constantine’s intention at Nicaea was to create an entirely new god for his empire who would unite all religious factions under one deity. Presbyters were asked to debate and decide who their new god would be. While previous historic records (now lost or destroyed by the Vatican) indicated this event included an atmosphere of democratic debate, it is almost certain that Constantine knew the outcome he wanted. Delegates argued among themselves, expressing personal motive for inclusion of particular writings that promoted the finer traits of their own special deity. Throughout the meeting, howling factions were immersed in heated debates, and the names of 53 gods were tabled for discussion. “As yet, no god had been selected by the council, and so they balloted in order to determine that matter… For one year and five months the balloting lasted…” (God’s Book of Eskra, Prof. S.L. MacGuire’s translation, Salisbury, 1922, chapter xlviii, paragraphs 36, 41).

At the end of that time, Constantine returned to the gathering to discover that the presbyters had not agreed on a new deity but had balloted down to a short list of five prospects: Caesar, Krishna, Mithra, Horus and Zeus (Historia Ecclesiastica, Eusebius, c. 325). Constantine was the ruling spirit at Nicaea and he ultimately decided upon a new god for them. To involve British factions, he ruled that the name of the Druid god, Hesus, be joined with the Eastern Saviour-god, Krishna (Krishna is Sanskrit for Christ), and thus Hesus Krishna would be the official name of the new Roman god. A vote was taken and it was with a majority show of hands (161 votes to 157) that both divinities became one god. Following long-standing heathen custom, Constantine used the official gathering and the Roman apotheosis decree to legally deify two deities as one, and did so by democratic consent. A new god was proclaimed and ‘officially’ ratified by Constantine (Acta Concilii Nicaeni, 1618). That purely political act of deification effectively and legally placed Hesus and Krishna among the Roman gods as one individual composite. That abstraction lent Earthly existence to amalgamated doctrines of the Empire’s new religion; and because there was no letter ‘J’ in alphabets until around the ninth century, the name subsequently evolved into ‘Jesus Christ’. — Nexus Magazine, Volume 14, Number 4

Hesus and Krishna are both the names by which Tammuz, a demon that is the son of Satan and his pre-flood world human wife Astarte, is worshipped.

Christians are followers of this pagan god.

With its spread among the Gentiles, the pagan characteristics of Christianity gained in influence, and after Constantine the Great and the adoption of Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire, the traditional Hellenistic-pagan forms of civic, social, and cultural anti-Semitism (see Apion) merged with the specifically Christian theological motifs to form an amalgam that has left a tragic legacy to history. — The Encyclopedia Judaica, Volume 5, p. 511

Thus came about the birth of Christianity, with the Catholic Church as its first church; the ‘mother church’.

This was written about Aleister Crowley, an infamous Satanist and Freemason:

In 1904, Crowley and his new wife Rose visited Egypt for their honeymoon. It is during this trip that he wrote his most famous book Liber Legis, the Book of the Law, which would become the cornerstone of his life… Later, during their stay in Egypt, Crowley and Rose took part in a magical ritual during which he alleges to have received a message from an entity named Aiwass. As a result of this communication, Crowley wrote the first three chapters of the Book of the Law — a mystical text which, he believed, would revolutionise the future of mankind… The message from Aiwass, whom Crowley understood to be his own guardian angel, convinced him that his mission in life was to give the coup de grace to the Age of Osiris with its moribund appendage, the Christian faith, and build on the ruins a new religion based on the law of the ‘Thelema’ — Greek for ‘will’. — The Magic of Obelisks by Peter Tompkins

The Book of the Law is a corruption of the Book of the Law of Moses, which contains the laws Yahweh gave to Moses for the children of Israel, which are separate from the Ten Commandments, which are the laws Yahweh gave to the children of Israel. Osiris (a fallen angel) is an Egyptian god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead, and Aiwass is also a fallen angel or demon; Crowley claims his voice dictated the Book of the Law. The book contains three chapters, each of which was written down in one hour, beginning at noon, on 8th April, 9th April and 10th April in Cairo, Egypt, in the year 1904.

Christianity and Judaism were influenced by Zoroastrianism, an Iranian religion founded by Babylonian King Nimrod, Noah’s great-grandson (he was also known as Zoroaster, and the Assyrian god Ninus), which can be traced to 600 BCE. The Pharisees — later known as Rabbis — took over the sacred positions held by the Levite priests, as Judaism encroached the belief system of the children of Israel, and corrupted it.

The trinity

“All Pagan religions from the time of Babylon have adopted in one form or another — a trinity doctrine or a triad or trinity of gods. In Babylon it was Nimrod, Semiramas and Tammuz. In Egypt it was Osiris, Isis and Horus. In Plato’s philosophy it was the Unknown Father, Nous/Logos and the World Soul. The Greek triad was composed of Zeus, Athena and Apollo. Romans had their trinity of Jupiter, Mercury and Venus. The Hindus had their trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.” — The Essential Teachings of Herbert W. Armstrong

trinity

There is only one God — Yahweh. The Holy Spirit is the Breath of Yahweh, and Yahshua is His Son. We are to worship Yahweh as ONE not as a TRINITY.

“So that they may know from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting that there is none besides Me. I Am Yahweh, and there is no other!” Isaiah 45:6

There is nothing recorded in Volume Two (New Testament) of the Holy Scriptures that ever quotes Yahshua as saying He was either an equal part of a trinity with Yahweh or that He pre-existed with Yahweh. On the contrary, everything Yahshua spoke showed He was in complete submission to His Heavenly Father Yahweh and to His Laws, as we all should be.

Yahshua taught the Law of Yahweh exclusively, and Yahweh’s Law teaches that Yahweh is One and that we are to serve and worship Yahweh only.

“Then one of the scribes came, and listened to all their discussion, and had noted how well He answered. So he asked Him, ‘What is the first commandment of all?’ And Yahshua answered Him, ‘The first of all the commandments is: Hear, Israyl, Yahweh is our Father. Yahweh is One. And you must love Yahweh your Father with all your heart and with all your soul, and with all your might.’” Mark 12: 28-30

“Hear, Israel, Yahweh is our Father. Yahweh is One. And you must love Yahweh your Father with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.” Deuteronomy 6:4-5

“Then Yahshua said to him, ‘You get away, Satan! For it is written: Yahweh your Father you must reverence, and Him only you must serve!’” Matthew 4:10

“Yahweh your Father you must reverence, and Him you must serve, and by His Name you must take your oaths.” Deuteronomy: 6:13

“And do not call anyone on earth ‘father’, for you have one Father, and He is in heaven.” Matthew 23:9

Referring to a religious leader as ‘father’ as a title of religious superiority is a pagan practice (Judges 17:10) and was forbidden by Yahshua. He was saying not to give them the reverence and honour which belong to Yahweh, as the true authority lies not with man but with Yahweh. He was not speaking in a biological sense as in Exodus 20:12. He was speaking about ecclesiastical superiority.

“You have heard that I told you, ‘I go away, but come again to you. If you loved Me, you would have rejoiced that I Am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.’” John 14:28

“For I have not spoken on My own; but the Father Who sent Me gave Me the Laws, what I should say and what I should speak. And I know that His Laws are life everlasting; so whatever I speak, I am saying exactly what My Father has told Me to say.” John 12:49-50

“But no man knows that day nor hour. No, not even the Malakim in heaven, but My Father only.” Matthew 24:36

“And behold, one came to Him, and said, ‘Teacher, what righteous thing may I do, so that I may have eternal life?’ But He said to him: ‘Why do you question Me about righteousness? There is only One Who is the standard of perfection, and that is Yahweh; so if you would enter into life, keep the Laws of Yahweh.’” Matthew 19:16-17

The apostles taught that Yahshua died.

“Then Yahshua cried with a loud Voice, and died.” Mark 15:37

The apostles also taught that Yahweh raised Yahshua from the dead.

“This Yahshua, has Yahweh raised up, and of this we are all witnesses!” Acts 2:32

It is a Scriptural fact that Yahweh is immortal, that He cannot die. So if Yahweh and Yahshua are the same Being (as Christianity teaches) how could One die and the Other live to raise the One Who died? This simply makes no sense, but neither does any Christian doctrine. Note what the Apostle Paul wrote, speaking of Yahweh:

“Who alone has immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; Whom no man has seen, nor can see; to Whom belongs honour and power everlasting. HalleluYahweh! Praise Yahweh!” 1 Timothy 6:16

In this verse, we also read that no man has ever seen Yahweh, yet Yahshua most definitely was seen.

In order to justify their claim that Yahshua is Yahweh and that He pre-existed with Yahweh, the Christians quote the following Scripture from the King James Version:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” John 1:1-5

The word ‘Word’ in these verses comes from the Greek word logos. The Christians, so eager to promote the pagan Trinity, attached to the word every pagan interpretation. But they deliberately ignore the fact that John was a Jew who had nothing to do with pagan Greek philosophy.

The word logos in its ordinary meaning comes from the Hebrew word dabar.

A Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament, by Julius Furst, page 312, shows us that the Hebrew word dabar refers to Yahweh’s Plan and His Laws:

text

So John wrote, under inspiration, not of a pre-existent God-saviour, but of the wonderful Plan of Yahweh. The Anchor Bible, Ephesians 1-3, page 111, shows us from the Talmud that seven things were in Yahweh’s mind, His Plan, from the beginning and this plan included the Saviour:

Seven things, i.e, the law, repentance, paradise, Gehinnom, the throne of glory, the heavenly sanctuary, and the Messiah are not called pre-created, but pre-conceived in (Yahweh’s) thoughts. — The Talmud tractate Pesachim 54a; cf. Nedarim 39b

With all this in mind, let us read the correct translation of the following Scripture:

“In the beginning was the plan of Yahweh, and the plan was with Yahweh, and the plan was Yahweh’s. The same plan was in the beginning with Yahweh. All things were done according to it, and without it nothing was done, that was done. In this plan was life, and that life was the light to mankind. Now that light shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not take hold of it.” John 1:1-5

Satanists/Freemasons/Illuminati believe that the dove is Satan as the Holy Spirit (Satan was called Lucifer/The Morning Star before he was expelled from heaven):

Helena Blavatsky, an occultist, Luciferian, magician, Mason, and founder of the Theosophical Society, along with Masonic author Albert Pike, blasphemed the Holy Spirit in their writings of this belief, that Lucifer is the Holy Spirit. Pike referred to the Holy Ghost when he wrote, “…the body of the Holy Spirit, the universal Agent, [is] the Serpent…”

The Holy Spirit of Occult Orders, the liaison between the earth realm and the heavens, is Lucifer. This is graphically represented on the lamen of the Luciferian fraternity Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O).

Lamen of the O.T.O. Upside dove = Fall of Lucifer, the chalice contains the sacrament of the Mass. The Pyramid represents the three attributes of Yahweh: Love, Will and Intelligence; the All-Seeing Eye represents His Omnipresence. Satan wants to be God, so he stole this symbolism and uses it as his own (the eye inside the lamen’s pyramid is the ‘Eye of Ra’, symbolising sun worship). The sun rays symbolise Satan as the sun god:

The cross

The cross is one of the most readily recognised symbols all over the world. It is emblematic of Christianity and understood by most anyone who sees it as a sign of Messianic sacrifice on behalf of a sinful world. The symbol we are familiar with, having two lines bisecting one another in some form, roughly like a lowercase ‘T’, is an ancient one, the depictions of which make appearances in a wide variety of pagan traditions.
What can be revealed with fairly little effort is that the symbol of crossing lines goes back thousands of years. The ‘Mark of Cain’ was a cross with a serpent coiled around the intersection — forming an ‘S’, placed in the middle of his forehead, at the point where the ‘third eye’ is located.

One of the most well known of these symbols comes from Egypt. The ankh stood for fertility and eternal life:

Ankh

A similar figure, known as the Tau (after the Greek letter it resembles; appearing like a capital ‘T’) has been associated with like connotations. It is related to a number of deities such as the Sumerian Tammuz, the Roman Mithras and his Persian counterpart Mithra. The cross Yahshua was hung on looked like this:

tau

The symbol of the ‘sunwheel’ or solar cross is yet another example, a derivation of which can be seen in what is known as a Celtic cross/Gnostic cross/Odin’s cross/Sun cross.
This symbol also correlates to cycles of rejuvenatio… a returning ‘sun god’ who resurrects life each spring, as well as celestial cycles of the ‘spheres’ which return back to their beginning (bringing a ‘new age’) with each full turn, much like annual seasonal cycles:

sun wheel

After coming by information on the pagan usage of the symbol, it is often natural to then have doubts about whether our Saviour would have been found hanging on something which resembled these symbols.

“And if a man has committed a crime punishable by death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall bury him the same day, for a hanged man is cursed by Yahweh. You shall not defile your land that Yahweh your Father is giving you for an inheritance.” Deuteronomy 21:22-23

“Yahshua redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.’” Galatians 3:13

“And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!” Philippians 2:8

HE BORE THE CURSE FOR OUR SALVATION.

The word ‘Amen’

The greatest enemy will hide in the last place you would ever look. — Julius Caesar 75 BCE

Amen was the personification of the hidden and unknown creative power which was associated with the primeval abyss, gods in the creation of the world, and all that is in it. The word or root amen, certainly means ‘what is hidden’, ‘what is not seen’, ‘what cannot be seen’, and the like, and this fact is proved by scores of examples which may be collected from texts of all periods. In hymns to Amen we often read that he is ‘hidden to his children’, and ‘hidden to gods and men’ … Now, not only is the god himself said to be ‘hidden’, but his name also is ‘hidden’, and his form, or similitude, is said to be ‘unknown’. These statements show that ‘hidden’, when applied to Amen, the great god, has reference to something more than the ‘sun which has disappeared below the horizon’, and that it indicates the god who cannot be seen with the mortal eyes, and who is invisible, as well as inscrutable, to gods as well as men. — The Official Internet Site of the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism

During their exile in Babylon, some of the children of Israel were initiated into Judaism, and returned to Jerusalem as Pharisees, who corrupted the worship system of the Jews and turned them away from worshipping Almighty Yahweh. They gradually usurped the Levite priests, and introduced idol worship, including the Egyptian god Amen, who is Satan; this is how the word was incorporated into the Hebrew Scriptures.

“Be careful to do everything I have said to you. Do not invoke the names of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.” Exodus 23:13

(If you have trouble omitting this word from your prayers, in its place say: I love You Yahweh, I love You Yahshua, I love You Archangels, I love You Angels, thank You.)

The Mark of the Beast and the Seal of Yahweh

“Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to Yahweh. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns. For in six days Yahweh made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He rested on the seventh day. Therefore, Yahweh blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” Exodus 20:8-11

“He replied, ‘Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written: These people honour Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. They worship Me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. You have let go of the commands of Yahweh and are holding on to human traditions.’ And he continued, ‘You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of Yahweh in order to observe your own traditions!’” Mark 7:6-9

The Catholic Church changed the holy day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. Sunday is the first day of the week and so the correct Sabbath is Saturday, the seventh day.

“It is well to remind the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, and all other Christians, that the Bible does not support them anywhere in their observance of Sunday. Sunday is an institution of the Roman Catholic Church, and those who observe the day observe a commandment of the Catholic Church.” — Priest Brady, in an address reported in The News, Elizabeth, New Jersey, March 18, 1903.

Early Believers kept Saturday as the Sabbath until March 7, 321 BCE, when Pope Constantine passed a law requiring Believers to worship on Sunday, the day the pagans worshipped the sun god. Believers still kept Saturday as the Sabbath until another law was passed 11 years later. This law, signed into decree by Pope Constantine, forbade Believers to worship on the Sabbath (Saturday) and it was punishable by death by the Catholic Church. Many Believers were burned to death by the Catholic Church for keeping the Sabbath.

These are the people Saul was persecuting:

“Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against Yahshua’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a Voice say to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me?’

‘Who are You?’ Saul asked.

‘I Am Yahshua, Whom you are persecuting,’ He replied. ‘Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.’
The men travelling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

In Damascus there was a disciple named Ananias. Yahshua called to him in a vision, ‘Ananias!’

‘Yes, Master,’ he answered.

Yahshua told him, ‘Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.’

‘Master,’ Ananias answered, ‘I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to Your holy people in Jerusalem. And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your Name.’

But Yahshua said to Ananias, ‘Go! This man is My chosen instrument to proclaim My Name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for My Name.’

Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, ‘Brother Saul, Yahshua, Who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here, has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.’ Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptised, and after taking some food, he regained his strength.

Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus. At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh. All those who heard him were astonished and asked, ‘Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this Name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?’ Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Yahshua is the Messiah.” Acts 9:1-22

(The transition from Saul to Paul seems to come in Acts 13:9 when Luke ‘introduces’ the name Paul and then refers to him thereafter as Paul. All the Epistles have ‘Paul’, and ‘Saul’, after Acts 13:9, is only used when referring back to Saul’s confrontation on the road to Damascus. Paul was Saul’s Roman name, which he used when ministering to the Gentiles, in order to connect with them.)

Paul became a formidable soldier for Yahshua, travelling all over preaching the Word of Yahweh and proclaiming Yahshua as the Messiah. The Jews were expelled from Rome in 49 BCE by Roman Emperor Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus, after being accused of aggressive missionary efforts — preaching the Word of Yahweh and proclaiming Yahshua as the Messiah to the Roman Christians.

There were at least two expulsions of Jews from Rome before this event, in 139 BCE, following a decree issued by Roman Praetor Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio Hispanus, and in 19 CE, when Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar Dīvī Augustī Fīlius Augustus once again expelled Jews from the city for similar reasons.

(There had been a large Jewish community in Alexandria, Egypt, practically from the time of its foundation in 332 BCE. The long-standing animosity between the Greek and Jewish inhabitants of that city flared up into open violence in 38 CE, and the Jewish community had to endure first a series of vexatious administrative restrictions at the hands of the civic authorities and then brutal outrages at the hands of the city mob. This anti-Jewish activity involved an attack on the special privileges which the Jewish community of Alexandria had long enjoyed, and which had been confirmed by successive Roman rulers. As a result, the Jews migrated to Rome.)

“After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.

When Silas and Timothy came from Macedonia, Paul devoted himself exclusively to preaching, testifying to the Jews that Yahshua was the Messiah. But when they opposed Paul and became abusive, he shook out his clothes in protest and said to them, ‘Your blood be on your own heads! I am innocent of it. From now on I will go to the Gentiles.’

Then Paul left the synagogue and went next door to the house of Titius Justus, a worshiper of Yahweh. Crispus, the synagogue leader, and his entire household believed in Yahshua; and many of the Corinthians who heard Paul believed and were baptised.

One night Yahshua spoke to Paul in a vision, ‘Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. For I Am with you, and no one is going to attack and harm you, because I have many people in this city.’ So Paul stayed in Corinth for a year and a half, teaching them the Word of Yahweh.” Acts 18:4-11

The ‘split’ in Christianity occurred when the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox churches broke apart in 1054, and in 1521, after Martin Luther was excommunicated by Pope Leo X. Luther was the chief catalyst of Protestantism, a professor of Scriptural interpretation at the University of Wittenberg in Germany who drew up 95 theses condemning the Catholic Church for its corrupt practices of selling indulgences, or the forgiveness of sins.

These warring factions of Christianity represent the battle for leadership on Earth between Satan (the Serpent) and the angels who joined in his rebellion, and those who came to Earth and had children with human women led by Samyaza (the Phoenix, sometimes symbolised by a peacock or an eagle (see Pagan gods and The cross)).

“Love Yahweh your Father with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.” Deuteronomy 6:5-8

“Fix these words of Mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.” Deuteronomy 11:18

Behind your FOREHEAD is the part of your MIND that makes free will decisions and the Scriptures show that HANDS symbolically represent your actions (Psalm 9:16, Matthew 5:30). Receiving the mark of the beast on one’s forehead means deciding to worship the beast (sun worship), receiving the mark of the beast on your hand means acting on one’s decision.

Does the Anti-Messiah power enforcing the mark have anything to do with Yahweh’s laws? Very much so, and we know this for a fact through Scriptural prophecy and history. There can be no doubt that Revelation 14:12 states that those who keep the Ten Commandments are those who DO NOT get the mark of the beast. This is not speculation. After the mindset you probably now have from all the speculation that has been fed to you regarding this mark, this no doubt on the surface sounds understandably strange. But is it?

“A third Angel followed them and said in a loud Voice: ‘If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of Yahweh’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of His wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the Holy Angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.’ This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of Yahweh who keep His commands and remain faithful to Yahshua.” Revelation 14:9-12

“After this I saw four Angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another Angel coming up from the east, having the Seal of the living God. He called out in a loud Voice to the four Angels Who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: ‘Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until We put a Seal on the foreheads of the servants of Our Father.’ Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.” Revelation 7:1-4

“Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000 who had His Name and His Father’s Name written on their foreheads.” Revelation 14:1

The Seal of Yahweh is observance of the Fourth Commandment.

The Mark of the Beast is Sun Worship.

The belief that the Mark of the Beast is a sign that is yet to be created and forced on us is a lie. All of Yahweh’s creatures shall be judged according to the same rules, so it only makes sense that both the Seal of Yahweh and the Mark of the Beast have existed since the beginning of earthly creation, and we exercise our free will on which one to receive.

The Beast is Tammuz, a demon that is Satan’s son with Astarte, his pre-flood world human wife, worshipped as a god then.

In the post-flood world he is known and worshipped as Gilgamesh and Tammuz (Babylonian), who originated as a Sumerian shepherd-god, Dumuzid or Dumuzi, Adonis and Eshmun (Canaanite) — Adonis is derived from the Canaanite title, Adon. It is the Semitic word for master or ‘lord’ and it means ‘my’, therefore Adonai (Adonis is the Hellenised version of the same) translates as ‘my lord’; similarly the meaning of Baal, with whom he shares traits, is also ‘lord’ or ‘master’.

crucified christ catholic altarHe was also worshipped as the Feathered Serpent, a prominent supernatural entity or deity found in many Mesoamerican religions. It was called Quetzalcoatl by the Aztecs, Amaru by the Incas, Kukulkan by the Yucatec Maya, and Q’uq’umatz and Tohil by the K’iche’ Maya. In the Quiché tongue Q’uq’umatz is the exact equivalent of Quetzalcoatl in the Nahuatl language; quetzal, the bird of paradise, coatl, serpent — ‘the serpent veiled in plumes of the paradise-bird’.

Satanic symbols are placed at the altars of pagan temples to attract the spiritual, emotional and physical energy from worshippers to the symbols. Evil spirits then harness the energy from the symbol. One of these symbols is that of the crucified Tammuz or Jesus Christ — centuries of worship have strengthened this demon, and it will soon be strong enough to assume its role of world tyrant as prophesied.

The name Shetani and its plural mashetani (Arab and Swahili) used to refer to demons/evil spirits, are names for Satan; Ana (Indian) is an invocation of a goddess; Abi (Nigerian) is a invocation of a demon; Sho (Nigerian) is an invocation of a demon; Yawa (Luo of Kenya) is an invocation of a demon, Ala! (Swahili of Kenya and Tanzania) is an invocation of the pagan god Allah; by Jove!, by Jiminy!, by George!, and by cracky! are euphemistic oaths (Jove is another name for Jupiter/Satan, the principal Roman god, Jiminy is Jupiter, George is another name for Satan, Cracky is another name for Christ).

Green’s Dictionary of Slang (Volume 1) says there are many versions of this expression, spelled ‘crackey’, ‘crackie’, ‘crikey’, ‘crikes’, ‘criminy’, and so on (often without the preposition ‘by’).

Remember, you MUST acknowledge Yahshua as your Messiah and Saviour, Your Master and the Son of the Living God, Who died for our salvation.

“Yahshua answered, ‘I Am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

The single most important thing we, as Believers, will ever do aside from accepting our Saviour ourselves, is bring His message to others. Having an eternal impact on every single being accountable to a moral standard… what we do with the message is ultimately the measure of what kind of servant we were for Him.

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the Glory of His Father with the Holy Angels.” Mark 8:38

Worship of false gods and goddesses (demons, fallen angels and their human wives), as well as the anointing received during initiation into religious cults, such as baptism (Christianity), jatakarma (Hinduism), taking refuge in the Three Jewels (Buddism), call to prayer or adhaan, and shaving of the baby’s head after seven days to show it is a servant of Allah (Islam)… prevents our Guardian Angels from effectively protecting and helping us.

Choose wisely.

Peace in the Messiah.

Eat His Body, Drink His Blood

Standard

“So Yahshua said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in yourselves. He who eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My Flesh is true food, and My Blood is true drink. He who eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood abides in Me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on Me will live because of Me. This is the Bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this Bread will live forever.’” John 6:53-59

These are some of the misinterpreted verses in Scripture. By the ‘Son of Man’, Yahshua means Himself, under which title He often spoke of Himself, because it was a title of the Messiah in the old days; and was expressive of the truth of His human nature.

Scriptural verses are often symbolic. The ‘flesh’ and ‘blood’ of Yahshua do not design those distinct parts of His Body, much less as separate from each other, nor His whole Body; but His whole human nature, or Yahshua as having united a perfect human nature to Him in order to shed His Blood for the remission of sin, and to offer up His Soul and Body a sacrifice to it.

The eating of these is not to be understood as a corporeal eating of them, as the Capernaites understood it, and since them the Roman, Oriental and Orthodox Catholics, Mormons, Lutherans, Anglicans, United Methodists, Seventh-day Adventists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Presbyterians and Baptists, who affirm that the bread and wine in what they call the ‘Lord’s Supper’, Holy Communion or Eucharist are transubstantiated into the body and blood of their False Messiah, and so eaten (see The Great Deception, Pagan gods, Pagan feasts, Unveiling the Beast and Meaning of the Crosier).

But the verses are also not to be understood as the eating and drinking in the Last Supper, which, as yet, was not instituted; and some, without participating in this, have spiritual life in them now and will enjoy eternal life hereafter. Having a principle of spiritual life in the soul is necessary to the right eating of the supper of the Master.

The words design a spiritual eating of Yahshua by faith. To eat the Flesh and drink the Blood of Yahshua is to believe that Yahshua came in the flesh and is truly and really man; that His Flesh was given for the life of His people and His Blood shed for their sins. It is to partake of and enjoy the several blessings of grace procured by Him, such as redemption, pardon, peace, justification, and such a feeding upon Him is attended with growth in grace, and in the knowledge of Him; and is daily to be repeated, as our corporeal food is.

Otherwise, people have no life in them, only those who believe in Yahshua are living souls; and between these acts of faith and eternal life there is an inseparable connection.

Another related verse that is also misunderstood:

“And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is My Body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’” Luke 22:19

“And when He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, ‘Take, eat, this is My Body, which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’” 1 Corinthians 11:24

When Yahshua said ‘do this in remembrance of Me’, He was referring to the Passover.

The unleaven bread used in the Passover and during the Feast of Unleaven Bread is called ‘matzo’, or ‘matsoh’. Matzo has stripes; Yahshua was whipped before He was crucified. Matzo has holes; the side of Yahshua’s Body was pierced when He was on the cross. Matzo has no leaven; Yahshua was without sin His whole life.

A piece of matzo is broken in half, and the larger of the two pieces is hidden away in the middle section of a linen cloth with three pockets. The broken and hidden piece of matzo, called afikoman (meaning ‘hidden’), is brought out later in the ceremony (called the Seder), to symbolise how Yahshua’s Body was broken for us (Isaiah 52:13-14), then He died, was wrapped in a linen cloth, buried and rose again. When it is brought out from concealment it is shared by everyone at the table as their final morsel.

The three pockets symbolise learning, priesthood and kingship; Yahshua was a Teacher, a Priest and a King.

Hebrew Feasts

Standard

Hebrew feasts or holidays are holy days decreed by Almighty Yahweh for the Israelites to observe (Leviticus 23)

Etymology of holiday:

From Old English haligdæg ‘holy day, consecrated day, religious anniversary; Sabbath’, from halig ‘holy’ (see holy) + dæg ‘day’.

There are seven Hebrew feasts:

Since we, the Gentiles, have now crossed over and worship the Living God, we are also expected to follow their ways. This means circumcising our sons at eight days old. (Eight is the number of rebirth or renewal. Being circumcised at eight days old marked one as having been reborn as Yahweh’s own. Circumcision marked one as belonging to Yahweh’s covenant people. It was a sign of Yahweh’s ownership and promises.)

What if the day of circumcision falls on the Sabbath?

The Scriptures tell us circumcision is allowed on the Sabbath, so as not to break the Law of Moses (John 7:23).

We should also celebrate their festivals:

Passover (Pesach) — Nisan 14-15
Unleaven Bread (Chag Hamotzi) — Nisan 15-22
First Fruits (Yom habikkurim) — Nisan 16-17
Feast of Weeks/Pentecost (Shavu’ot) — Sivan 6-7
Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teru’ah) — Tishri 1
Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) — Tishri 10
Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot) — Tishri 15-22

We should observe all the feasts decreed by Yahweh, with the exception of the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, but without sacrifices. Any food prepared is only to be eaten. Also, we are no longer required to slaughter a lamb for Passover, since the Lamb of God, Yahshua, the Perfect Sacrifice without blemish, was already offered up on the cross. We can slaughter any other creature that we are allowed to eat (see Meat man is allowed to eat and Birds’ eggs are FOETUSES).

This is clearly stated in the Book of Isaiah:

“He who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a person, and whoever offers a lamb is like one who cuts off a dog’s neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood, and whoever makes a memorial offering of frankincense is like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.” Isaiah 66:3

Yahshua, the Messiah, was to be the final blood sacrifice (Isaiah 53). No other sacrifice would be required or accepted after Him. The animal sacrifices under the Mosaic Law were intended to be of temporary duration, a temporary measure only. Yahweh’s intent was for there to be one final blood sacrifice, and that would be the sacrifice of the Messiah Himself. This, then, was the reason Yahshua had to die: to provide the blood sacrifice for sin once and for all. No longer would the Jews be burdened with the yearly sacrifices. All a person would need to do is to accept the Messiah’s death on his behalf and his sins would be forgiven. Yahshua the Messiah had to die to provide that atonement, for blood was the means of redemption (Leviticus 17:11)… ‘He who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a person’… not that killed the ox of his neighbour which, according to law, he has to pay for, or that killed one for food, which was lawful to be done, but that killed one and offered it as a sacrifice, not because it was blind or lame or had any blemish in it, and so unfit for sacrifice, or not rightly offered, under a due sense of sin and with repentance for it, but because all sacrifices of this kind are abolished in the times to which this prophecy belongs, Yahshua the great and Perfect Sacrifice having been offered up; and therefore to offer sacrifice was a great offence to Yahweh, it was as grievous to Him as offering their children to Molech, or as the murder of a man, and was indeed a trampling underfoot the Son of God, and accounting His Blood and sacrifice as nothing; ‘and whoever offers a lamb is like one who cuts off a dog’s neck’…the lamb for the daily sacrifice, morning and evening, or the Passover lamb, or any other, is no longer acceptable to Yahweh than if a dog, a very impure creature, was killed, his head cut off and offered on the altar; ‘whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood’…the grain offering, made of fine flour, on which oil was poured and frankincense put (Leviticus 2:1), however rightly composed it might be, and offered according to law, yet now of no more esteem with Yahweh than blood, which was forbidden by the same law, even the blood of swine, which creature itself, according to the ceremonial law, was unclean and might not be eaten, much less offered up, and still less its blood (Leviticus 11:7-8; 17:10-11); ‘and whoever makes a memorial offering of frankincense is like one who worships an idol’…that offers it as a memorial of mercies, and by way of thankfulness for them, as if he gave thanks to an idol, which is nothing, and vanity and vexation in the world; sacrifices of such kind, be what they will, are reckoned as idolatry; ‘they have chosen their own ways’…which were evil and opposite to the ways of Yahweh, especially to the way of salvation by Yahshua; they gave heed to the traditions of the elders, continued the service of the ceremonial law and set up their own righteousness, in opposition to the doctrines, ordinances, sacrifice and righteousness of Yahshua; ‘and their soul delights in their abominations’…things which were detestable to Yahweh, as were their traditions, which were preferred to the Word of Yahweh, and by which they made it void; and their sacrifices being offered up contrary to His will and with a wicked mind, and their righteousness being imperfect and trusted in, to the neglect and contempt of the righteousness of His Son (Isaiah 65:3).

What is Yom Kippur all about?

Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement, is perhaps the most mysterious of all holy days given to Israel to keep.

It is widely taught by Christian leadership that this day is a foreshadowing of the Messiah’s atonement on the cross for mankind, yet the foreshadowing of this event is much more applicable to another day which Israel was to keep in remembrance, namely the Passover.

The bondage with which Israel served in Egypt is not unlike the bondage of the whole of humanity under Satan and his power.

The Angel of Death Who was sent to smite every first-born in Egypt is obviously counterpart to the fact that the wages of sin is death. The lamb’s blood which is applied to the doorposts is a direct foreshadowing of the covering of the Blood of Yahshua, which causes the Angel of Death to ‘pass over’ the Believer. Eating the lamb is mirrored in the words Yahshua spoke at the Last Supper, which itself was a Passover meal… “this is My Body…”

(Yahshua’s Body is also symbolised by the unleaven bread eaten during Passover and the Feast of Unleaven Bread, called ‘matzo’, or ‘matsoh’.)

The purpose of Yom Kippur, then, would reasonably stand for a different set of circumstances relating to atonement and cleansing.

The first action which is to be performed involves a bull. The bull is offered as a sacrifice for Aaron and for his own family personally.

“He is to cast lots for the two goats; one lot for Yahweh, and the other lot for the scapegoat.” Leviticus 16:8

The second action involves casting lots for two goat kids. Here is where, upon close examination, the ritual becomes very strange.

Lots are cast and one goat is selected randomly to be a killed sacrifice ‘for Yahweh’ to atone for the ‘uncleanness’ of the children of Israel.

The second goat is then designated as ‘for the scapegoat’ according to King James Version and most other English translations. This goat is to be let go alive into the desert after receiving upon its head all the ‘iniquities’ of Israel.

The notion that both of these goats are sacrifices for moral transgression does not make a lot of sense. One is killed, the other released, but if the killed goat is sacrificed to atone for moral transgression, what then is the point of also loading those same sins onto a live goat which will depart into the desert?

The first of these goats makes an atonement because of the uncleanness of Israel, but the atonement is for the ‘Holy Place’. (‘In this way he will make atonement for the Most Holy Place because of the uncleanness and rebellion of the Israelites, whatever their sins have been…’ Leviticus 16:16)

As the first goat is randomly selected by lot for a personal Being, the Creator Yahweh — it follows, naturally, that the second goat is also selected for a being — rather than the way it reads in English ‘for the scapegoat’, as if the lot is selected for the goat.

If the second goat is not designated as belonging to an individual, we would expect the first to be described in like manner, such as: ‘One lot for the goat to be killed to Yahweh, and the other lot for the scapegoat’.

The incongruity of the English translation suggests that a name has been omitted here.

The word for scapegoat, given in Hebrew is ‘azazel’… the definition for which is given as ‘goat of departure, scapegoat’.
The claim of this definition is supposedly resting on the root words — ‘ez’, a word which is used for a she-goat in the singular, and ‘azal’: to disappear or depart.

There is no question that the given root of the word ‘azazel’ is flawed, and flawed in such a way that it’s almost impossible to imagine it being an honest error.

The word ‘ez’ is not itself a root definition, but goes back to the word ‘az’ which means ‘strong, powerful and fierce’. The use of the word for a goat came from the goat exhibiting these traits.

Furthermore, the word ‘azaz’, which also derives from ‘az’ and is clearly nearer the mark in reference to ‘azazel’, means ‘to harden oneself impudently’ or ‘to be strong in opposition against’.

The suffix ‘el’ is very common in Hebrew and is a word which literally means ‘Mighty One’ and can both refer to Yahweh or to an Angel.

Azazel, then, correctly translated, is ‘one who is impudently hardened against Yahweh’.

Azazel is a being… one who has his first Scriptural mention in a book outside of canon: Enoch, and so it begins to make some sense as to why pains would be taken to eliminate a canonical reference to a name which only appears elsewhere in books rejected from canon.

“Also Azazel taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrication of mirrors, and the workmaship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world became altered. Impiety increased, fornication multiplied; and they sinned and corrupted all their ways.” Book of Enoch

Back to the first goat which was to be killed. The indication of the fact that the atonement took away some uncleanness from the children of Israel, in order that they might not be an affront to Yahweh in His Holy Place, brings up the question what manner of uncleanness might this be that is different from the iniquities which are placed upon the goat to be sent away.

Uncleanness here is the word tamah which is ‘to be contaminated or defiled’.

This word appears in numerous places to describe physical characteristics of uncleanliness. A woman in her menstrual cycle for instance, or someone who has a contagious disease is defined as tamah.

When it is understood that Yom Kippur, is in part, related to a fallen angel named Azazel, who numbered among rebels that physically polluted the human gene pool, it is more clear what a physical uncleanness might be which needs some amendment, at least spiritually, before the congregation can come before the Holy Place.

The nation of Israel was meant to preserve a pure human stock which was not to be mingled with the hybrid multitudes of other nations.

It still can not be expected that the congregation of Israel was completely pure of intermingling; indeed we are told several times throughout Scripture of the offspring of Abraham taking to themselves wives from other nations.

Yom Kippur is also a commandment to foreigners who live with Israel, in other words, that uncleanness which is assumed to be in some small part contaminating some of Israel is surely to be expected in a foreigner.

The verse should read:

“He is to cast lots for the two goats; one lot for Yahweh, and the other lot for Azazel.” Leviticus 16:8

An offering ‘for Azazel’ might strike Believers as very, very unseemly business for the people of Yahweh to be commanded to do.

The implication that this goat is a sacrifice to a fallen angel has kept most Believers from coming to terms with the meaning of Yom Kippur as it is stated in the Scriptures.

This is a misunderstanding though; the released goat is not meant as a gesture of worship or a sacrifice to the fallen angel, rather, it is meant as a means to convey the penalty of the sin which is upon Israel to the fallen angel.

In fact, the word which was used in English to replace Azazel’s name — scapegoat — has, to this day, preserved the true meaning of the ritual which was ironically hidden by the same word.

‘Scapegoat’ now means ‘to impart blame on a party other than the one who actually committed the transgression’.

The very reason that such a ritual should exist goes back to a single, little known sentence which was spoken by Yahweh to Enoch:

“All the earth has been corrupted by the effects of the teaching of Azazel. To him, therefore, attribute the whole crime.” Book of Enoch

It was this curse placed upon Azazel which became the foundational reason for conveying the iniquities of Israel to him. Azazel was cursed to pay the penalty for all the sin of Yahweh’s people.

Azazel, of course, does not represent the atonement for which the Messiah came. Azazel merely became the temporary object of Yahweh’s wrath for all that was done wrong by His people so that He could, instead of cursing them, bless them, until the Messiah came and forever removed the necessity for a ‘scapegoat’.

It is further made evident that Azazel is the focus of the second selected goat on Yom Kippur in that the goat was taken out into the desert to be set free.

The goat would not survive, it would surely die. We might assume it would die of thirst or starvation, but Israel so feared that the animal would return to them and, therefore, bring back with it their iniquities, that they often threw it into a canyon to ensure its death.

It is told in Enoch that the place they released the goat is also the place where Yahweh sentenced Azazel to imprisonment beneath the earth:

“Again, Yahweh said to Raphael, ‘Bind Azazel hand and foot, cast him into darkness; and opening the desert which is in Dudael, cast him in there. Throw on him hurled and pointed stones, covering him with darkness.” Book of Enoch

The blood of bulls and goats of course could never set sinners free eternally from the bonds of their sins; neither could visiting those sins on a fallen angel.

Perfect Justice is not served in either way, as the life of animals does not equate to the life of a human being, nor can a wicked angel be forced to carry the burden to any ultimate effect — himself having been a sinner who could not pay his own price.

For sin to be eradicated, it required nothing less than Yahshua, perfect and Almighty, to be our Passover Lamb.

(see The Great Deception, Shroud of Turin, Pagan gods, Pagan feasts, Adam means ‘Red Man’ and Who is the Neanderthal man?)

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).

The Needle of Jerusalem

Standard

“Then Yahshua said to His disciples, ‘Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Matthew 19:23-24

“The disciples were amazed at His words. But Yahshua said again, ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of Yahweh! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Mark 10:24-25

The Sciptures have been corrupted. The reason for this tampering with of the Sacred Books is to misinform us and hide the knowledge of how man became separated from his Creator, through his own free will, by the choices he made and the actions he took as a result of those choices. Instead, we have been availed versions that are incorrect and misleading.

The story of Tobit is especially blasphemous. Man has NO authority to summon, command or give orders to Yahweh, Yahshua, Archangels, Angels or any other Heavenly Beings.

Take, for example, the verses above. In Jerusalem, there was a small gate known as the ‘Needle’. Its purpose was to allow traders and merchants to enter the city in the evening, after the main gates had been shut for security reasons.
It was a side gate — small and narrow — and was not intended for passage by animals, especially camels carrying heavy loads (and the camel has a hump). So it was almost impossible for the act to happen.
A camel would have to be unloaded and kneel to pass through, then be reloaded on the other side.

The verses should read:

“Then Yahshua said to His disciples, ‘Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the Needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Matthew 19:23-24

“The disciples were amazed at His words. But Yahshua said again, ‘Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of Yahweh! It is easier for a camel to go through the Needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of My Father.'” Mark 10:24-25

Yahshua’s message was that we need to detach ourselves from our material possessions in order to enter heaven. It is fine to be rich, but share your riches with others, and do not be a miser or cling to the material things of this world.

After all, when we die, we leave everything behind.

(Although the message in the verses may not have changed, it is important to learn that our Master used references to actual places and events of that time to illustrate His parables and teachings.)

Spiritual Dangers of Martial Arts

Standard

Originally, martial arts were intended for war and battle. The aim was to kill your opponent as quickly as possible on the battlefield, and should a warrior lose his weapon, he was taught to use his body to kill, incapacitate or maim his opponent.

Martial arts involves techniques which have been taken from many different styles or arts and combined to make a mixed system or a composite (composed of many) style.
Most people have heard of Kung fu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Aikido (wrestling, sumo, boxing and kickboxing are also martial arts), and there are hundreds of different styles within each of these arts also.

Such arts as Muay Thai (from Thailand), Kali (Philippines), or Silat (Indonesia), still retain their weapon based focus on killing, in the traditional form of their respective arts. Other Japanese and Chinese systems also use weapons as part of ‘passing on the art’, to students, to keep the art alive, but the focus is more on preserving the art, than going into battle swinging a weapon.

Yoga may not strictly be regarded as a martial art, but it forms one of the basic methods used in martial arts — exercises based on Hinduism. The word ‘yoga’ comes from Sanskrit `yo’ (man) and ‘ga’ (god), and the aim is to bring a union between them. The philosophy behind yoga positions is for them to allow the body to release the inner human spirit, and to be freed from the limitations of human flesh and thought. The aim is to achieve union with the universal spirit Brahma (or in Buddhism, with the eternal nothingness).

The meditation used in yoga is used to induce a state in which the mind is blanked out and mental activity is suppressed until one becomes tranquil and blissful.
This is DANGEROUS, and opens a person up and makes the vulnerable to the power of evil spirits. It is also a deception, because the aim of true spirituality is not to be freed from our bodies and thoughts, but to allow the Holy Spirit to empower and cleanse them. Even if people think that all they are doing is yoga exercises, they are opening themselves to this false philosophy and spiritual influence.

Yoga is based on an ancient practice of sun salutations — obeisances to the sun god/Satan — known as Surya Namaskara:

Obeisances to the sun god

Salutation 5

Salutation 5: Prostration to Him who moves in the sky, is an attempt of Satan to be ‘like the Most High’ (see The truth about Santa Claus and Symbolism of Superheroes):

“How you have fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to the heavens: I will raise my throne above the stars of Yahweh; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’” Isaiah 14:12-14

Surya

Surya, the sun god

“There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides across the heavens to help you, and on the clouds in His Majesty.” Deuteronomy 33:26

The words ‘om’, used in yoga; and ‘hia’, used in martial arts, are actually invocations of real demons (see Sun worship and Pagan gods):

“I am Om, the Word that is God.” (Bhagavad Gita 7:8) So declared the infinite Satchidananda through the lips of the avatar Krishna. Also: “I am Om.” (Bhagavad Gita 9:17) And: “Among words I am the sacred syllable Om.” (Bhagavad Gita 10:25)

A karate instructor is usually called Sensei or master. Sensei means ‘one who has gone before’ or ‘teacher’ in Japanese — ascended master/demon (see Making of a Moon Child).

Qigong (also spelled Ch’i Kung) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China that is similar to yoga. It is the art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (qi). Qigong involves mediatition, which opens one up to the influence of evil spirits. In the past, qigong was called nei gong (inner work) or dao yin (guiding energy): this ‘guiding energy’ comes from demonic forces. In martial arts, qigong is the key to strength, stamina, coordination, speed, flexibility, balance, and resistance to injury.

Exoteric-esoteric associations are ubiquitous in the oldest surviving martial arts documents (densho). Some old initiation documents assert divine origins for martial arts by linking them to the bodhisattva of India, to the kings of India and the founding gods of Japan. Other describe how secret martial techniques were first revealed to high priests and shamans by demons and gods (fallen angels) in dreams at famous temples and shrines.

Many old initiation documents contain simplified instructions for esoteric Buddhist rituals such as magical spells written in Sanskrit script that supposedly offer protection from enemies, or diagrams that show how swords and other weapons correspond to mandalas populated by demons, gods and sacred animals. Tantric rituals meant to invoke the protection of the gods were especially popular among medieval fighting men.

The martial techniques themselves consisted primarily of prearranged patterns (kata). Students stood, attacked and parried using choreographed exercises. As with Buddhist tantric ritual performances, the internalisation of these patterns through constant repetition gave coherence to the curriculum’s apparent complexity.

Assertions of divine origins and use of religious terminology imbued the Japanese martial arts with a mystical authority that helped to ensure their survival, even after many of their fighting techniques became anachronistic. Even today, students of these traditions may begin their training by signing written pledges (kishomon) to keep secret the esoteric lore they would learn. Also, students who completed their instruction might receive their martial arts diplomas at pseudo-religious rituals modelled after tantric initiations. For example, the student may perform ascetic practices (shojin) for a set number of days, after which a chapel (dojo) would be decorated, a special altar erected, and Buddhist deities (demons and fallen angels) invited. At the ceremony, the students would present ritual offerings of weapons to the deities and give a specified amount of gold coins to his teacher as a token of gratitude. Thus it was widely proclaimed that success in battle depended religious devotions and ritual performances as on fighting skill.

Then there are arts which were introduced in the 20th century for modern self-defence, such as Judo, and Aikido, or Tae Kwon Do. These modern martial arts take techniques from Jujitsu, Bushido (way of the Samurai warrior), and Korean Tukido, Hapkido or Kuk Sool Won, and refine them into a more usable modern and legal art.

There are many traditional martial arts around the world that still teach the killing elements of the battlefield, and preparing for war, as a soldier does. In India, there is Kalariphayat; in Indonesia, Silat; in China and Japan, Samurai; and there are many not-commonly-known African martial arts also.
Many modern armies around the world are taught these martial arts in their original forms, but add modern training equipment to become more effective in a shorter space of time. In certain countries, police forces also adopt the techniques of martial arts to restrain or control an assailant or criminal.

There are also specially trained assassins like the Ninja, and the Chinese Lin Kuei or Saladin’s Assassins (Hashassins), whose arts were specifically about murdering your target in cold blood. These deadly black arts were also termed martial arts, as assassination became part of war, but these were arts that had no honour attached to them. But these warrior-killers were feared and respected.

Ninja

What is the origin of these arts?

The early roots date back to Babylon and even before the Great Flood, when the fallen angels took human wives and bore the giants or Nephilim and their offspring. They ruled the earth and dominated the natural humans. Their wickedness grew, and so they taught humans the art of war and the killing points of the human body.

In the post-flood world, this knowledge was passed down by the demons (Nephilim who were stripped of their physical bodies (see Aliens are Demons!)) through the priests that revived and encouraged worship of these fallen angels, their human wives and the Nephilim. They called them ‘gods’ and ‘goddesses’, and in order to keep or gain power and influence joined temples and learned the occult powers of devil/fallen angel worship and Nephilim appeasement, so that these demons (djinn) would not harass them. They were also taught necromancy, divining, clairvoyancy, extrasensory perception, Monarch programming, and all other magical demon influenced arts practised before the flood (see Monarch programming).

The Nephilim/demons were contacted via spiritism (mediums), to consult about battles and fighting. Religions were fused with fighting arts, as the warriors, like those of Sparta, and Indian warriors, were then brainwashed to follow the training of the priests with their religious allegiance to false gods. And their sorcery made the warriors fear them, because they feared the spirits/demons who spoke through the priests. To combat this, some of these warriors learned the black arts to avoid any priest defeating them supernaturally. And so their arts were passed down through the generations.

The martial arts were at first passed on by way of secret groups who tried to protect the knowledge of their practices from others. Note that the term ‘occult’ means ‘hidden’. Demonic spirits desire to be hidden because they belong to the darkness. However, they were later taught to non-initiates on a lesser scale, and have now been glamourised through movies such as Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, Fist of Fury; David Carradine’s Kill Bill Volume 1, Kill Bill Volume 2; Jackie Chan’s Who Am I, Rush Hour; Jean-Claude Van Damme’s No Retreat, No Surrender, Kickboxer; Stephen Seagal’s Under Siege, Hard to Kill, etc.

Although the martial arts have now become widely known and accepted around the world, their spiritual basis has been largely still hidden, and people are initiated into the practices without being told about the occult basis. The development of the martial arts as ‘sports’ or for ‘self-defense’ is part of this hidden nature to try and make them more acceptable to the modern mind.

There are only two kinds of spiritual power — from the Kingdom of Yahweh (holy) and from the kingdom of Satan (evil). There is only one God, Yahweh Almighty, and any spiritual power from any other source that is not attributed to Him is in rebellion against Him, and belongs to Satan.

In martial arts, one is able to attack and opponent without actually touching them, and to levitate; this can only be achieved through spiritual/supernatural forces. Which force do you think enables this?

Children are taught martial arts from an early age, and as we have seen, demonic power is involved in these practices, and we cannot rule out demonic possession, especially since, in ancient times, warriors were tattooed before going to battle. These tattoos were etched on by shamans and high priests, who burned incense and chanted ancient incantations to invoke evil spirits to attach themselves to the tattoos, so as ‘to protect’ the warriors and guarantee their success.

Children are so vulnerable, and have less resistance to evil spirits than adults, because they are purer. The longer a demon takes hold of a person’s soul, the harder it is to cast it out. In the Scriptures, we see a perfect example:

“When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. As soon as all the people saw Yahshua, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet Him.

‘What are you arguing with them about?’ He asked.

A man in the crowd answered, ‘Teacher, I brought You my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.’

‘You unbelieving generation,’ Yahshua replied, ‘how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.’

So they brought him. When the demon saw Yahshua, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.

Yahshua asked the boy’s father, ‘How long has he been like this?’

‘From childhood,’ he answered. ‘It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us.’

”If You can’?’ said Yahshua. ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’

Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’

When Yahshua saw that a crowd was running to the scene, He rebuked the impure spirit. ‘You deaf and mute spirit,’ He said, ‘I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.’

The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, ‘He is dead.’ But Yahshua took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.

After Yahshua had gone indoors, His disciples asked him privately, ‘Why couldn’t we drive it out?’

He replied, ‘This kind can come out only through prayer and fasting.'” Mark 9:14-29

So, when they encourage children to desire the knowledge of martial arts through films, such as The Karate Kid and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they have a sinister plan — to enslave them spiritually.

The history of martial arts reveals that it is not as innocent as it appears, and, although presented as harmless sport, it is extremely harmful to our spirits.

The truth about Santa Claus

Standard

“The Great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to earth, and his angels with him.” Revelation 12:9

In the Scriptures, we are told that Satan rebelled against Yahweh, and was cast down from heaven. The reason for his rebellion was his desire to be God; his plan is to de-throne Yahweh and deceive mankind to rebel against Yahweh, and so perish along with him and his angels.

“How you have fallen from heaven, Lucifer, son of the morning! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to the heavens: I will raise my throne above the Stars of Yahweh; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, in the sides of the north. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.’” Isaiah 14:12-14

Satan, who was called Lucifer (the Morning Star) before he was cast down from heaven, always chooses the path of least resistance when attacking us. Yahshua compared Satan to lightning. Lightning always travels the path of least resistance:

“He replied, ‘I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.’” Luke 10:18

The devil is also portrayed as a lion:

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8

The lion is a predator of opportunity, that looks for the injured, the smallest, the youngest or the weakest; the one with the least ability to run or fight.

The devil plagues and torments us in the place where we are most tender and weak. In Paradise he fell not upon Adam, but upon Eve. — The Table Talk of Martin Luther #424

Satan is a ‘master of disguise’, he can take on the form of something pleasant and seemingly harmless, but that is in fact deadly. He may just appear as a pleasant, friendly fellow with a broad face and a round little belly, and NEVER in his true form, which is hideous, since he and his angels were stripped of their beauty and bright nature when they were cast down from heaven.

“And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an Angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14

The aim of Santa Claus/Father Christmas/Old Nick/Saint Nicholas is a subtle, deadly attack on our children, to confuse and rob their God-ordained, innocent faith.

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

The rearranging of letters — called anagrams — to hide secret names or words has long been practiced in the occult world. One of the most well known anagrams in the occult world is the name of Sanat Kumara.

…the New Age offers a being called Sanat Kumara. ‘Sanat’ is obviously a thinly veiled reference to Satan; nevertheless, New Age teachers believe that the new spelling will alleviate the concerns of those not yet ready to confess Satan as their Lord and Messiah. — Texe Marrs, Dark Secrets of the New Age, pp. 79-80

Lucifer’s true identity as Satan is Revealed as the Anagram, a Transposition of Letters, To Obscure it. ‘Blinds’, as esoteric call them, includes scrambling the letters of a name to hide the true meaning of a word from the uninitiated. — Gail Riplinger, New Age Versions, p. 52

Santa is Spanish for ‘holy’. Santa is also from the Latin word, ‘sanctus’, which also means ‘saintly’ or ‘holy’. The English words ‘saint’, ‘sanctify’, et al, are derived from ‘santa’.

Yahweh’s Name is called ‘holy’ many times in the Scriptures:

“Let them praise Your Great and Awesome Name; for it is holy.” Psalm 99:3

The name ‘Santa Claus’ is derived from the Dutch ‘Sinter Klaas’, which was also a form of ‘Saint Nicholas’.

‘Claus’ is an anagram for ‘Lucas’ and ‘Lucis’, a New Age code word for ‘Lucifer’. The Alice Bailey-founded New Age publishing company was originally named ‘Lucifer Publishing Company’, but in 1925 the name was changed to ‘Lucis Publishing Company’, then to Lucifer Trust. It is now known as ‘Lucis Trust’, and is a major player in the works of the United Nations (UN) and has consultative status (roster level) with the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The Lucis Trust is the publishing house which prints and disseminates UN material. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and pagan nature of the UN. At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza. Bailey changed the name to Lucis Trust, because Lucifer Trust revealed the true nature of the New Age Movement too clearly.

Old Nick: A well-known British name of the Devil. It seems probable that this name is derived from the Dutch Nikken, the devil. — Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, p. 650

Devil: Besides the name Satan, he is also called Beelzebub, Lucifer… and in popular or rustic speech by many familiar terms as Old Nick… — Oxford English Dictionary Vol III D-E

(The New Line Studios 2000 film Little Nicky is about Satan. The tagline for the film is: If Your Father Was The Devil And Your Mother Was An Angel, You’d Be Messed Up Too. Be Unafraid.)

Definition of the slang word nick: to rob or steal. — Robert L. Chapman, American Slang p. 297

Here’s what Yahshua says:

“Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.” John 10:1

“I Am the gate, whoever enters through Me will be saved; they will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come so that they may life, and have it to the full.” John 10:9-10

“And among the seven lampstands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to His Feet and with a golden sash around His Chest. The Hair on His Head was white like wool, as white as snow, and His Eyes were like blazing fire. His Feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and His Voice was like the sound of rushing waters.” Revelation 1:13-15

Who ‘climbs in by some other way’ — a chimney — with his feet ‘in a furnace’?

Chimney: 1. a structure, usually vertical, containing a passage or flue by which the smoke, gases, etc., of a fire or furnace are carried off and by means of which a draft is created. — Webster’s Dictionary.

A verse from the poem The Night Before Christmas reads:

“He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.”

“As I looked, thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took His Seat. His Garment was white as snow; the Hair of His Head was white like wool; His Throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.” Daniel 7:9

Santa/Satan is impersonating our Messiah Yahshua and our Father Yahweh, in his attempt to be ‘like the Most High’.

The famous anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss wrote in his popular analysis of ‘Father Christmas’:

“Father Christmas is dressed in scarlet; he is a king. His white beard, his furs and his boots, the sleigh in which he travels invoke winter. He is called ‘Father’ and he is an old man, thus he incarnates the benevolent form of the authority of the ancients.”

“And do not call anyone on earth ‘father’, for you have one Father, and He is in heaven.” Matthew 23:9

Father Christmas/Santa is dressed in scarlet.

“Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with His clothes dipped in blood? Who is this, robed in splendour, striding forward in the greatness of His strength? ‘It is I, proclaiming victory, mighty to save.’ Why are Your clothes red, like those of one treading the winepress? ‘I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with Me. I trampled them in My anger and trod them down in My passion, their blood spattered My clothes, and I stained all My clothing.’” Isaiah 63:1-3

“I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse, Whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice He judges and wages war. His Eyes are like blazing fire, and on His Head are many crowns; He has a Name written on Him that no one knows but He Himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His Name is the Word of Yahweh.” Revelation 19:11-13

Levi-Strauss goes on to write that children believe in Santa, paying homage to him with letters and prayers.

“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:22

“Take delight in Yahweh, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4

Here’s an interesting history on Santa and his chimney (or just a version of Santa in the pre-patriarchal Scandinavian world):

“It seems the ‘chimney tale’ came to us via Thor, the Norse god of thunder and lightning. Thor’s name means ‘thunder’.

Most families in the pre-patriarchal Scandinavian world would have an altar to Thor — their fireplace. Every year on his birthday, December 25th, Thor would come down the chimney to his altar of fire, and bring presents to the kiddies.

Thor was nicknamed ‘Klaus of the cinders’ or ‘Sinter Klaas’, because it was believed he would be singed as he went into the fireplace.
Thor liked to wear furs in red for fire and white for snow. He is usually depicted with a long white beard. He had a place in the north.

And he also rode through the sky in a sled pulled by two goats, named Gnasher and Crasher. Another of Thor’s nicknames was ‘Old Nick’. Thor also carried a trident — Satan’s pitchfork.”

(Satan/Thor/Zeus (god of the sky and king of the gods) are symbolised by the lightning bolt (Luke 10:18))

Santa lives in the North Pole.

“Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness. Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the Great King.” Psalm 48:1-2 (Isaiah 14:12-14)

Santa is a carpenter, and another of Thor’s symbols is a carpenter’s hammer.

Santa the Carpenter

Yahshua was a carpenter:

“‘Is this not the carpenter? Is this not Miriam’s Son, and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Are His sisters not here with us?’ And they were offended by Him.” Mark 6:3

Santa miraculously rides upon the heavens as he delivers his gifts, with his reindeers guiding his merry way.

Another verse from The Night Before Christmas:

“As dry leaves as before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of toys, and Saint Nicholas too.”

“There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides across the heavens to help you, and on the clouds in His majesty.” Deuteronomy 33:26

Satan is the prince of ‘the power of the air’.

“In which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world, and of the prince of the power of the air, the spirit which is now at work in the children of disobedience.” Ephesians 2:2

Whose laugh is ‘Ho, ho, ho’?

Ho, ho, ho, cherry nose
Cap on head, suit that’s red
Special night, beard that’s white
Must be Santa, Must be Santa
Must be Santa, Santa Claus
— from Christmas song written by Hal Moore and Bill Fredericks.

“Ho, ho, come out, and flee from the land of the north, says Yahweh; for I have scattered you abroad like the four winds of the heaven, says Yahweh.” Zechariah 2:10

In 1994, the satire magazine The Onion carried a parody of Santa Claus titled ‘Ho! Ho! Ho! I Am God’:

“I love visiting each and every one of your homes, stuffing your stockings with toys, and enjoying the milk and cookies you leave for me. But mostly I love Christmas because it’s the celebration of the birth of my son, Jesus the Christ. You see, I’m God… Don’t I look familiar? I’m old, I have a white beard, I love everyone. I’m the same God as the one you and your mommy and daddy worship on Sundays…

Okay, I admit it. I’m not God. But I’m better than God. I’m jollier, and I give you real toys, not boring old psalms and empty promises you can only collect on when you die. Worship me, not Him! Worship Santa! I am God!” — The Onion, 29 Nov.-5 Dec., 1994, p.7

Satan’s ultimate goal is to have the world worship him as God. And millions of children are lovingly giving him their love and the status of a ‘saviour’. Parents happily take their children to queue in malls to sit on Santa’s lap and whisper their secrets and requests in his ear.

“People were bringing little children for Him to place His hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Yahshua saw this, He was displeased; He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Yahweh belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of Yahweh like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:13-15

“People were also bringing babies to Yahshua for Him to place His Hands on them; when the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Yahshua called the little children to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Yahweh belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of Yahweh like a little child will never enter it.” Luke 18:15-17

Remember when the devil tempted Yahshua?

“The devil led Him up to a high place and showed Him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And he said to Him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendour, it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will all be Yours. Yahshua answered, ‘It is written: Worship Yahweh your Father, and serve Him only.” Luke 4:5-8

When you worship Satan, he will reward you with material possessions and wealth, so that you are fooled into thinking you are on the right path and worshipping the One True God, Yahweh Almighty (that’s not to say that Yahweh does not bless people with wealth).

Sadly, Santa Claus has replaced Yahweh’s place in the hearts of many children around the world. Many children pray and ask Santa Claus to heal sick friends and relatives, bring them gifts on Christmas eve, etc.
Santa has replaced Yahweh as the gracious giver of gifts and the One Who answers their prayers.

“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for fish, will give him a snake? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:7-11

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights; Who does not change like shifting shadows.” James 1:17

An excerpt from the song Santa Claus is Coming to Town by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie:

He sees you when you’re sleeping, He knows when you’re awake,
He knows if you’ve been good or bad, So be good for goodness sake.

Children are taught that Santa knows and sees everything, and if they’re naughty, they won’t get presents for Christmas.

The Scriptures tell us that Yahweh is Omnipotent and Omnipresent:

“Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your Presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there, if I make my bed in hell, you are there.” Psalm 139:7-8

“The Eyes of Yahweh are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.” Proverbs 15:3

“Is anything too hard for Yahweh?…” Genesis 18:14

“Then Yahshua came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.’” Matthew 28:18

An excerpt from Jolly Old St. Nicholas:

Bobby wants a pair of skates,
Suzy wants a sled
Nellie wants a picture book,
Yellow, blue and red
Now I think I’ll leave to you what to give the rest.
Choose for me, dear Santa Claus;
you will know the best.

The Scriptures tell us that Yahweh knows what we need before we ask Him:

“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” Matthew 6:8

Where did Santa come from? He has no father or mother and seems to be eternal… never dies, has no beginning or end.

Only God is everlasting; the Alpha and the Omega — with no beginning and no end:

“Yahweh reigns, He is robed in Majesty; Yahweh is robed in Majesty and armed with strength, indeed, the world is established, firm and secure. Your Throne was established long ago; You are from everlasting.” Psalm 93:1-2

“Yahweh, are You not from everlasting? My God, my Holy One, You will never die; You Father, have appointed them to execute judgement; You, my Rock, have ordained them to punish.” Habakkuk 1:12

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your Hands. They will perish but You remain, they will all wear out like a garment; like garments you will change them and they will be discarded. But You remain the same, and Your years will never end.” Psalm 102:25-27

The ‘Spirit of Christmas’ — Santa has his own spirit.

“And I will pray to the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may live with you forever. The Spirit of Truth; Whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him, neither does it know Him; but you know Him, for He lives with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:16-17

“And the Earth was without form, and void, and darkness was on the surface of the deep; and the Spirit of Yahweh moved upon the surface of the waters.” Genesis 1:2

Children are taught to fear Santa:

You better watch out,
You better not cry
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town…
— from Santa Claus is Coming to Town

“Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of Yahweh.” Psalm 34:11

“The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow His precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise.” Psalm 111:10

Children are taught that they are accountable to Santa:

…He’s making a list,
He’s checking it twice
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice

On Judgement Day, we will all give an account of ourselves to Yahweh for all we did when on earth:

“So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to Yahweh.” Romans 14:12

“And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the Book of Life; the dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.” Revelation 20:12

When children visit Santa Claus in the mall, he’s sitting on his ‘throne’, waiting to receive them, like a king.

“Micaiah continued, ‘Therefore, hear the Word of Yahweh; I saw Yahweh sitting on His Throne with all the multitudes of heaven, standing around Him on His right and on His left.” 1 Kings 22:19

Children are taught from an early age to believe in Santa.

“And in that place many believed in Yahshua.” John 10:42

“And they said, ‘Believe in Master Yahshua, and you will be saved; you and your household.” Acts 16:31

And, as Christmas approaches, they eagerly await him to bring them presents and answer their prayers.

“While we wait for the blessed hope; the appearing of the glory of our Great God and Saviour, Yahshua.” Titus 2:13

We know that Santa Claus is fantasy, he doesn’t really exist, but he represents Satan, and Satan is indeed real, evil and out to get our souls.
The creation of Santa serves a purpose in our lives — one that is diabolical (see Pagan feasts)

So, do you still believe in Santa Claus?
