EASTER: MAKING GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD (Worshiping the King of Kings or the Queen of Heaven)

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)

Hello all!

How have we as followers of Christ allowed such a travesty in our churches to be turning the Good of the Gospel into the Evil of this world?  Well, the truth is all this perversion started in the beginning of man’s civilization and at the tower of Babel.  We still have these two churches to this day and not much has changed in regards to the difference between Truth verses religion.

We choose the worldly over the spiritual because it is fun and entertaining and for our children…at least that is the argument that I hear most often about why we still allow these pagan practices to be part of our worship.  I think that is the worst reason possible to delude our children into following the fables of Easter bunnies and rabbits and eggs that all stem from the Babylonian mystery religions and is the worship of Satan and not the Lord.  Is that too harsh? Well, maybe that is what we need a slap in the face wake-up call!

Here we are at “Easter” time celebrating another pagan holiday as if it where somehow connected with the Truth of Christ. It is such idolatry, the same thing that was going on after the Flood and the building of the tower of Babel. I talked about, in the previous article how Cain was the “father of religion” now we will see who carried on his traditions and introduced the religious practices headed by the “father of lies”.

Satan’s strategy in the garden of Eden had been to pull God’s creation away from a pure relationship with Him by deceit and lies :

Gen.3:1-5 “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

Now, after the Flood, he aims to unite man together in a movement that is in rebellion against God’s purposes. Nimrod wanted to build a tower to reach to heaven. Genesis 11:4 says, “And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.” Here we see a unified effort by the people of the world for a single purpose.

This purpose is the problem. They desired to make a name for themselves and storm the gates of Heaven. Their intents were pushed by the same spirit Satan exhibited at his expulsion from Heaven, and in the Garden of Eden with Eve. They desired to usurp the very authority of God. The city was named, Babel, which in Hebrew means, “to confuse.” The Babylonians preferred to use the meaning that was more acceptable to them, “gate of God.” “Babel,” is the Hebrew form, and “Babylon,” is the Greek form. Their plan was thwarted when God, with apparent use of his angels, confounded their languages.

Satan’s chosen emissary for this task was Nimrod. Nimrod is spoken of as being both a hunter and a king, but these two characteristics are incompatible. His hunting abilities were aimed at men, he hunted them to bring them under his own sovereignty and control. This is where his strength lay, not in his prowess of catching game, but in capturing men to do his own will.

Nimrod is the son of Cush who was the son of Ham. Ham of course being the son who knew his own mother and begat Canaan whom God cursed. Noah’s wife was a descendant of Cain making the offspring of the union between Ham and she almost a full blooded descendant of Cain. But that is another story for another time. I mention it here as it shows how Satan used the descendants of Cain, the father of religion, to carry out his purposes on this earth. Nimrod is the founder of both Babylon and Nineveh, the two great cities of antiquity which became, ultimately, enemies of Israel.

Nimrod married Semiramis, they had a son whom Semiramis claimed was virgin born, and they founded the mother and child cult. This was the central character of the religion of ancient Babylon, the worship of a mother and child, supposedly virgin born. You can see the clever attempt of Satan to anticipate the genuine virgin birth and thus cast disrepute upon the story when the Lord Jesus would later be born into history. So, we can see where this big lie got started, having the population of the earth worshiping the false deities of Nimrod and Semiramis ( the King of Babylon and the Queen of Heaven).

Following the death of Nimrod, his heathen form of worship was carried on by his wife, Queen Semiramis. She claimed that her husband had become the Sun God, and was to be worshiped. Some time after this, Queen Semiramis conceived through adultery and gave birth to an illegitimate son who she named Tammuz, whom she declared was actually Nimrod reborn, and that he was supernaturally conceived. However, even though Semiramis claimed to have given birth to a savior, it was she that was worshiped, not the son. She was worshiped as “the Mother of the Gods” and “the Queen of Heaven”.

Legend has it that after Semiramis died, she ascended into heaven and was returned to earth inside a large egg which fell into the Euphrates river. The egg was pushed ashore by a dove and she emerged from the egg as Astarte or Ishtar which in English is Easter! To show her gratitude to the dove she turned it into an egg-laying rabbit, all signs of fertility.

Semiramis’s greatest accomplishment was aiding her husband Nimrod in replacing the worship of God with a polytheistic system based on the stars.
Eternal truths of God were corrupted by her into a mythic cycle wherein the great dragon is depicted as the rightful lord of the universe whose throne has been temporarily usurped by One whom we can recognize as the God of the Bible. The serpent creates man in his present miserable state, but promises that a child would one day be born of a divine mother and this child would supplant God, become a god himself, and return ruler-ship of the Earth to the serpent.

This is in direct contrast to primeval astronomy formulated by Noah’s righteous ancestors before the flood. In the original this system depicted by means of constellations the story of Satan’s rebellion and the war in the heavens, his subversion of mankind, the fall of Adam and Eve, the promise of One to come who would suffer and die to relieve man from the curse of sin then be installed as Lord of Creation, and the final re-subjugation of the cosmos to God through Him.

The false gospel became the religion of the majority of the people on earth. It was and is a religious story that imitates the Truth of the Gospel written in the stars that Noah and his decedents had learned and shared. It is the fake that preceded the Real Truth. We see this being carried on throughout the Biblical record in that first born sons lost their inheritance to the second son. Examples are Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and Esau, and this shows how “first comes the natural and then the spiritual”. So as it turns out first came the “natural earthly religious system” and then the “true and righteous spiritual system”.

Ishtar (Easter): Queen of Heaven

“Ishtar”, which is pronounced “Easter” was a day that commemorated the resurrection of one of their gods that they called “Tammuz” who was believed to be the only begotten son of the moon -goddess (Semiramis) and the sun-god (Nimrod). It was celebrated at the time of the first full moon after the Spring Equinox…sound familiar? In fact that is exactly when we are celebrating Easter this year.

Semiramis became known as Ishtar and her moon egg became known as “Ishtar’s egg”. Maybe that explains a bit about how we color Easter eggs and put them in baskets. Ishtar became pregnant and claimed it was the rays of the sun-god Baal that caused her to conceive. The son she brought forth was named Tammuz.

Tammuz was noted to be especially fond of rabbits, and they became sacred in the ancient religion. Definitely how we got the “Easter Bunny” as a symbol of Easter. Tammuz was killed by a wild pig and Queen Semiramis (Queen of Heaven) told her worshipers that when Tammuz was killed by the wild pig, some of his blood fell on the stump of an evergreen tree, and the stump grew into a full new tree overnight. This made the evergreen tree sacred by the blood of Tammuz…another pagan holiday that is all about the false gospel, Christmas and evergreen trees.

Semiramis also proclaimed a forty day period of time of sorrow each year prior to the anniversary of the death of Tammuz. This most certainly mimics Lent that Catholics still practice to this day. Worshipers were to meditate upon the sacred mysteries of Baal and Tammuz (The False Gospel) and to make the sign of the “T” in front of their hearts as they worshiped. Does this remind one of the motions one makes when entering a Catholic church?!!

They also eat cakes with the marking of a “T” or cross on the top .

What Did God Say About The “Queen Of Heaven”?

“The children gather wood, the fathers kindle fire, and the women knead dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods, to provoke me to anger.”(Jeremiah 7:18-19 RSV)

“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead the dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink-offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger. Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Behold, mine anger and my wrath shall be poured out upon this place….”(Jeremiah 7:18-20)(ASV)

Because Ishtar proclaimed that Tammuz was killed by a pig, that a pig must be eaten on Ishtar’s Sunday. This may be why ham seems to be the favorite food to serve on this pagan holiday. Also, it explains, to me a least, why churches have Sunday services. But that is another post another day. What is important at this time is to see the truth from these pagan lies. The truth is that the forty days of Lent, eggs, rabbits, hot cross buns and the Easter ham have everything to do with the ancient pagan religion of Mystery Babylon. These are all antichrist activities!!

These customs of Easter honor Baal, who is also Satan, and is still worshiped as the “Rising Sun” and how many churches have “sunrise services” on Ishtar’s Day and face the rising sun in the east. Do we think that Easter sunrise services are beautiful? Here is what God has to say through the Prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel had just been shown, in vision, idol worship among professing people of God:

Ezekiel 8:16-18

“And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD’S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshiped the sun toward the east.
Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.”

This Sunday millions of people will be doing this exact thing on Easter morning during a sunrise service, standing with their faces toward the east, as the sun is rising, in a service of worship which honors the sun god and his mythical idolatrous consort, goddess Ishtar! Yes, all these deceived so called Christians will be practicing the identical form of the ancient sun worship of the sun god Baal! This is an abomination to the Lord!

I have to say at this point, this example of Easter is a perfect example of what I am talking about with these posts…the difference between the Truth and religion and how it has permeated every aspect of the Gospel and the church. We must remember that the word “antichrist” really means a false imitation that looks like the real thing…so close to the truth that it is hard to tell them apart, and no one will until they seek for the answers. Be an “over comer” and overcome these traditions of men that promote the worship of the Queen of Heaven , and start to worship in the Spirit and Truth of the KING OF KINGS!

How Easter infiltrated the Church

First of all, Jesus and his apostles foretold of a great falling away from the truth on the part of the great majority of those who were preached the Gospel. A falling away from the faith once delivered as to the Thessalonians in 2Th.2:7 where Paul stated: (2Th 2:7) “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work”. Paul was referring to the very “Chaldea Mysteries”, of which Easter and Christmas were the two chief festivals.

Secondly, although Jesus said the gates of hell would never prevail against His church, yet it is prophesied in the New Testament to be the “little flock”…never as a great, large popular universal church! Therefore, there are two churches described, one the great and powerful universal church, a part of the world actually ruling in it’s politics over many nations, and united with the “Holy Roman Empire”. But where then is the true church?

The true church of God is pictured in prophecy as the “little flock”! The New Testament describes this Church as continually persecuted, despised by the large popular churches because it is not OF this world or its politics, but has kept itself unspotted from the world!!

So it is “Mother Church” the one that carried on the pagan traditions of Mother and Child Worship and actually worships Mary (mother of Jesus) as the “Queen of Heaven”! This church is the Holy Roman Catholic Church and it is celebrating all the traditions of men and is ruled by Satan. A man called a Pope who declares himself God on earth…sounds like Satan to me.

It is this false worship that carried evil into the world and although Satan was totally defeated by Jesus and his system of worship destroyed in Jerusalem in 70AD, Satan’s antichrist spirit still lives in all those who carry on under his banner and worship the Sun God and the Queen of Heaven and keep doing so without finding out the Truth.

I guess it is really true when the Lord tells us there really isn’t anything new under the sun. Nothing much has changed and yet that small flock will inherit the earth and that small flock grows all the time when each of us takes the time to find out for ourselves the reality of the Truth and worship the KING OF KINGS.

The Lord is calling us out of this worldly church when He says “Come out of her (Babylon) my people!”

Glory Be to the Lord of Lords!

GOOD FRIDAY IS A SPIRITUAL “BLACK FRIDAY”!

GOOD FRIDAY IS A SPIRITUAL “BLACK FRIDAY”!

 

Hello all!

In all honesty I wanted to entitle this post “Good Friday is the Good News of the Gospel” because it is so true! But, in keeping with my theme of the Truth verses Religion, I just had to compare the Truth of the Gospel with the falsehoods of the world.

In my last post I talked about Abel and Cain and how religion began with Cain’s offering to God. In that light, the world probably celebrates Black Friday more than they celebrate what Christ did for them on the cross on Good Friday. In all actuality what Christ did for them is beyond a sale in any store, beyond any great thing they can get at a discount, and what He did lasts forever and ever. What He did isn’t any kind of sale…it was for free. Still is!!

Why is it called “good” Friday? Well, it could be because every human that ever lived was raised to heaven! Don’t buy that? Well let’s see. The moment Christ died as the Holy Sacrifice for ALL man’s sins (past, present and future for all time) He changed the entire universe and all living things. Jesus took the keys of Hell and death away from Satan and brought every soul, from Adam on, into His presence.

When God set out a plan in Genesis, all of Creation was to be redeemed, once and for all, by the sacrifice of His Son. When Christ died ALL mankind was saved from hell and death. That did not mean that those alive at His death would escape suffering in they did not believe and leave Jerusalem by the end of 40 years…by 70 AD. There would be immense sufferings if they did not get the Truth before it was too late to get out of Jerusalem. I am talking the physical suffering during the horrors that transpired in the 3 ½ years of the torture that took place between 66 and 70 AD which were beyond unspeakable.

The wonder of knowing that Christ has already come and that the Holy Bible is a completed Work/Book and all the chapters fit right into the wholeness and beauty of the GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD. I am so grateful to be able to look at Good Friday in it’s true and righteous sense. I can celebrate Good Friday everyday as I can celebrate all things the Lord provided and keeps providing by His love. I celebrate the Sabbath everyday also, by resting my life in His hands as His helps me carry my load. I can celebrate Christmas everyday as I am here today in His kingdom because He was born into this world. You get my point.

Taking pagan holidays and making them seemingly “Christian” actually works against the saving grace of the Lord. It perverts the Truth to a point that good becomes evil and evil becomes good…it is twisted and it makes the whole world believe the biggest lie. The biggest lie of Jesus coming a third time, and until He does we stay lost in religions and chasing our tails.

I will be getting much more into this in my next article, but just had to put something out there about this Good Friday thing as well. It seems that most want to believe that the Gospel is just a good fable and if we keep twisting the Truth enough that is about all that will be left of it.

Celebrate everyday because….

JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!!

THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF RELIGION ( Oh Lord, we are stuck in Religion again! )

Cain’s offering of religion verses
Abel’s offering of faith

 

Hello all!

I have been doing much pondering and studying as to why religion has overshadowed the Truth ever since the time of Christ. I am wondering if there was ever a time when we, as humanity, wasn’t stuck in religion? It seemed to start with Cain and his religious offering to God. Abel brought a better offering because it was spiritual. Let’s look at that for a moment and see if we really can trace the start of religion back to that instance.

The Bible tells us in Gen. 4:3-5 of these offerings; “And in the process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.”

Both Abel and Cain knew God’s plan, the Gospel

Cain brought the “fruit of the ground”. What do we already know at this point in the Genesis story about how the Lord feels about the ground? He curses it!

Gen 3:14
“And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life”.

Gen 3:17-19
And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; in the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

Cain’s works were evil because he heard the word of God concerning sacrifice, as did Abel, but chose not to comply. Rather, he offered what he wanted (which was different from what God wanted) and thought God ought to accept it.

Cain brings what he has made of the fruit of the ground that he had been cursed to till and he brings it as “an offering to the Lord”. In doing thus, Cain actually becomes the “father of religion”, actually thinking that a man, cursed to the ground, could offer God, the Creator of the Universe, anything man created. Cain worshiped the created, and not the Creator, and that is why his offering was most offensive to the Lord.

Yet, before we hear of God’s rejection of Cain’s offering we hear of His acceptance of Abel’s. Abel’s offering is just the opposite of Cain’s. Abel knows the Lord and has a personal relationship with Him. Adam knows that the only thing that will please the Lord is the Gospel, and worshipping in Spirit (by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) and the Truth which is God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Genesis 4:4 continues “ and Abel he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and his offering.”  The very fact that Abel brings the first born lambs proves that he knows the Gospel, and that the Savior of all mankind will come from the first Lamb of God, Jesus. Thus, Abel honors the Creator, the Creator’s creations, the Creator’s plan (the Gospel) and Jesus, all in one offering!

Worshiping in Spirit and Truth verses the Traditions of man

We see, by the offerings made by Cain and Abel, that this is a very crucial part of the Genesis story, and how very important it is for us to understand the implications. So much happens in just a few words or verses, that knowing the foundation and the language makes a world of difference in interpretation. It also shows us that God had all this in mind before the foundation of the world, and is passing this knowledge onto man, at the very beginning of man’s creation.

Abel offered his sacrifice “by faith”,  but Cain brought what he liked and thought God should honor it, Cain did not respect the Gospel or the Word of God in the matter of sacrifice. This agrees with God’s telling Cain, “If you do well, will you not be accepted?”

It is difficult for many people to understand what is wrong with religion. Cain tried to please God by bringing an offering, which was the best he had to offer the Lord. Cain failed to understand that only by faith can God be pleased (Hebrews 11:6).

There are only two types of religions: DO and DONE. You either believe that you must DO something to be saved, as did foolish Cain; or else you believe that Jesus Christ has DONE it all for you through His blood, like Abel.

Granted, no religion can get you into Heaven. Religion tries to fit us with glasses, but the Lord wants to open our eyes. There are nearly 10,000 known religions in the world, and not one of them can save anyone!!! Yet, the Biblical plan of salvation is taught in some churches; but false doctrines are taught in others, which are fake churches.

Hebrews 12:24, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”

God will not save anyone who is trying to be saved, He will only save those who are trusting to be saved. Abel was trusting to be saved; but Cain was trying to be saved.

With all that in mind, we can easily see how “religion” began in Genesis and that it will end in the book of Revelation. The whole idea is the lifting once again of the veil that religion put between man and God. Religion is something man has to DO and the Truth is what Jesus has DONE. It appears pretty simple once one has had the scales removed from their eyes, and the whole story of Redemption and understanding the Bible takes on a whole new clarity and power in our lives.

More on all this later.

JESUS IS ALL AND EVERYTHING!!!
