88 means RIGHTEOUS AFFLICTED – The children of God are  afflicted and though TRUMP 22 (LIGHT) will come

Revelation 17

12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”

 

Bilderberg is a dark, powerful machine, a machine that can take down nations alone. Together with their related sub groups, they pretty much control the globe.

The powerful Globalist players at the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission are certainly watching the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

From Jon Rappoport:

“Trump has already made statements about immigration they find troubling. They may or may not be taking Trump’s presidential run seriously. They may or may not view him as an inconsequential blowhard, a shoot-from-the-hip cowboy who forgets today what he said yesterday—but today the New York Times has made reference to Trump in a way that will make these Globalist heavy hitters pause and blink while drinking their morning coffee (Here in “As Stock Market Plunges, Donald Trump Takes a Worldview” by Alan Rappeport):

“Mr. Trump has said that bad trade deals with China and Mexico are to blame for a sluggish American economy and weak job creation. He has promised to make ‘great’ deals with other countries to protect American workers and has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”

It’s the last part that rings alarm bells and shoots firecrackers into the sky:

“[Trump] has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”

Taxes on imports. Also known as tariffs.

Every significant trade-treaty negotiated since 1945 has been aimed at lowering or eliminating tariffs, in order to establish Globalist “free trade.”

Treaties like GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, for example; as well as the current TPP and its cousins.

Free trade is code for: mega-corporations and banks can roam the planet and set up shop anywhere they please. They can bankroll and build production facilities, produce cheap goods, and sell them anywhere in the world without paying tariffs.

Tariffs would make that whole operation useless. It would defeat mega-corporate greed and ambition internationally…Les Roediger

Trump Takes on the Global Elite

A candidate’s closing argument, or last speech before the election, can be revealing.  Who can forget Obama’s ringing declaration that his victory in 2008 would be “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal”?

The speech that Donald Trump delivered last Thursday in West Palm Beach will be studied for years by political scientists trying to understand the Trump phenomenon.  Regardless of the election outcome, there has never been a speech like it in American political history.

Appearing before thousands of cheering supporters at the South Florida Fairgrounds, Trump began his address by defining his campaign as a movement:  “Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment, with a new government controlled by you, the American people.”

With the understanding that his movement is on the verge of becoming a new party in America, Trump then unloaded a fierce attack on the corrupt leadership of both political parties.  “The Washington establishment, and the financial and media corporations that fund it, exist for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.  The establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election.”

“As an example, just one single trade deal they’d like to pass involves trillions of dollars, controlled by many countries, corporations and lobbyists.”  We saw how that worked after then-Senator Obama promised in 2008 that he would “renegotiate NAFTA,” then renounced that pledge as soon as he moved into the White House.

“The political establishment that is trying to stop us,” Trump continued, “is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.  It’s a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities. The political establishment has brought about the destruction of our factories, and our jobs, as they flee to Mexico, China and other countries all around the world.”

By an ironic coincidence, a few days before Trump’s speech, Britain’s Financial Times newspaper reported, “The world’s economic elite spent this week invoking fears of the existential crisis facing globalization while avoiding any mention of Donald Trump by name.”  Bloomberg followed with a similar story that “The emergence of Donald Trump as a political force reflects a mood of growing discontent about immigration and globalization.”

The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure.

“The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure.  We’ve seen this firsthand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors.”

That was a reference to Hillary’s $225,000 speech to South American bankers on May 16, 2013.  Hillary told her appreciative audience that her “dream” was to have completely “open trade and open borders” throughout the entire Western hemisphere.

Hillary’s anti-Americanism includes her record of favors for the outsourcing firm Tata, which exploited the H-1B visa system to replace tens of thousands of Americans with guest workers from India.  Tata gave money to the Clinton Foundation, participated in the Clinton Global Initiative, and Hillary declared “I am delighted to be the Senator from Punjab as well as from New York.”

Trump then turned his attention to “the most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons,” namely the press.  “Let’s be clear on one thing,” Trump continued, “the corporate media in our country is a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a political agenda, and their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton.”

Trump reminded his supporters that they are part of a worldwide uprising against the globalist elite.  “We’ve seen it in the United Kingdom, where they voted to liberate themselves from global government, global trade deals, and global immigration deals that have destroyed their sovereignty and have destroyed many of those nations.”

“But the central base of world political power,” Trump said, “is right here in America, and it is our corrupt political establishment that is the greatest power behind the efforts at radical globalization and the disenfranchisement of working people.  This is our moment of reckoning as a society and as a civilization itself.”“The corrupt establishment knows that we are a great threat to their criminal enterprise,” Trump concluded. “They know that if we win their power is gone. But, it all depends on whether we let the corrupt media decide our future, or whether we let the American people decide our future…Andy Schlafly

Muhammad Ali is NOT The Greatest – The FALL of ADAM

The Fall of Adam /Man

In the beginning God formed Cassius Clay. God formed CLAY of the dust of the ground. And God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul/ ADAM.“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good

From Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali

Meaning & History

Clay – earth regarded as the material from which the human body was formed

Adam – A living Soul

Genesis 2:7 King James Version (KJV)

And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

”… you will be like God,…”

Cassius Clay life illustrates  a man/ Adam who fell from grace to exalt himself to be like God. He changed his name to Muhammad Ali which means ”The Most Praised One

He believed the lie that Satan told eve. “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God,…Genesis 3:5

Ali was named after the abolitionist

Mohammad Ali’s father Herman Heaton Clay, a descendant of African-American slaves, named his son Cassius Marcellus Clay — who was born nine years after the death of Cassius Marcellus Clay, in tribute to the abolitionist.[16] This Cassius Clay gave his own son the same name, Cassius M. Clay, Jr., a heavyweight champion boxer who gained international renown

cassiusclay

Cassius Clay is a name that white people gave to my slave master. Now that I am free…Ali

”Cassius Clay is a name that white people gave to my slave master. Now that I am free, that I don’t belong anymore to anyone, that I’m not a slave anymore, I gave back their white name, and I chose a beautiful African one”. Muhammad Ali

”you talk to me. Who made me is me”…Ali

The-NEWREPUBLIC

The New Republic/ The New Earth under Satan

Under the new rule of Satan, man became lawless, out of order to our creator. When the judgement of the Flood came upon the earth only eight souls were saved; Noah and his family being found righteous before God (Genesis 7.7). Thus we learn that lawlessness is contagious because man at heart is sinful and by nature opposes any restraint placed upon him by God.

Speaking to the The New Repulic article on Branding Ali it states. ”Yet the truth of the matter was that his father did not make him. “When you want to talk about who made me,” he told a reporter, “you talk to me. Who made me is me.”

The pomp of Ali is profound, when he said he made himself, he showed no regard for his earthly father and his heavenly FATHER Creator/God. And this was his fall, his PRIDE.

The Saviour to Save Adam/Man – Our Redeemer

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest and the Lord God

JESUS  – The anointed One – Son of God

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS/Yahushua Ha Mashiach. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 

He’s the I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.  The Aleph and the Tav…Isaiah 44.6, Revelation 22:13

Luke 7:28

John/ Yohanan‎ was the greatest Prophet

For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than heMatthew 11:11

Christ Tells us about the eternal order of HIS coming kingdom. He said ”even the least in the kingdom of God is greater than John the greatest Prophet that ever lived”. But in order to be great you must understand that you are a sinner, WE are all sinners and must TURN away from that which is evil. Repentance is a change of heart and mind that brings us closer to God. It includes turning away from sin and turning to God for forgiveness. It is motivated by love for God and a sincere desire to obey His instructions.

SIN is the act of violating God’s will. Sin can also be viewed as any thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between an individual and God; or as any diversion from the perceived ideal order for human living

Turn to the Lord Jesus Christ (Yahushua Ha Mashiach) the anointed [one] his Hebrew name which means Yahuah / GOD is my Salvation. The Son of God, Jesus Christ ( for forgiveness by repenting of your sins. Jesus died for our sins and paid the penalty for them out of His love. Confess Jesus as your saviour. Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Mark 12:30-31 (KJV)

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

“Man, it’s great to be great.” Muhammad Ali

Mohammad Ali didn’t not except our Lord and Saviour. He was a Muslim and his God was Allah

“I’m the boldest, the prettiest, the most superior, most scientific, most skillfullest fighter in the ring today,” he told Howard Tuckner of the New York Times. “Man, it’s great to be great.” Muhammad Ali

Ezekiel 28:17

“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.”

Will Muhammad Ali See Heaven Or Hell? Muhammad Ali Was NOT The Greatest He Never Died For Anybody. So what if he was the best boxer of all time.

‘I’m the greatest, I’m a bad man, and I’m pretty!’ Ali

I should be a postage stamp, because that’s the only way I’ll ever get licked. I’m beautiful. I’m fast. I’m so mean I make medicine sick. I can’t possibly be beat. Muhammad Ali

Muhammad Ali

King of The World

The bible tells us that Satan is the King of this world. The question now becomes which spiritual entity gave Ali his ability to be so pomp and proud . To be the top of his game and call himself the greatest . Didn’t Satan say the same thing Christ. “I will give you all these things if you will bow down and worship me!” Matthew 4:9

Muhammad Ali Sold his soul to Satan

”He might as well have joined the Ku Klux Klan”

Here is an excerpt from Floyd’s Patterson article that reportedly incensed Ali

“So now we have Clay, and he’s practically turned the title over to the Black Muslims. Because of that I can’t respect him as a champion or as a man. He has a right to believe what he believes, but harm has been done to the Negroes’ cause and the way the rest of the world regards it by the one who calls himself Muhammad Ali. I don’t deny him his rights. By the same token, I have mine.

”I am a Negro and I’m proud to be one,…”

I am a Negro and I’m proud to be one, but I’m also an American. I’m not so stupid that I don’t know that Negroes don’t have all the rights and privileges that all Americans should have. I know that someday we will get them. God made us all, and whatever He made is good. All people—white, black and yellow—are brothers and sisters. That will be acknowledged. It will just take time, but it will never come if we think the way the Black Muslims think.

”…harm ….joining the Black Muslims.”

They preach hate and separation instead of love and integration. They preach mistrust when there must be understanding. Clay is so young and has been so misled by the wrong people that he doesn’t appreciate how far we have come and how much harm he has done by joining the Black Muslims. He might just as well have joined the Ku Klux Klan. One undemocratic organization is as bad as another. Put these two groups on a desert island and force them to live together and after a while you wouldn’t be able to tell a Black Muslim from a white bed sheet.”

The Clay word incensed Ali a lot, I don’t expect him to come out and say I tortured Floyd, however outspoken he was…Floyd Patterson

Muhammad Ali Sold his Soul

Muhammad Ali Sold his Soul to Satan. He gave him the spiritual powers in order to speak blasphemies against the Most high, Lets look at some bible verses that show us were he gained his abilities and stardom

Satan’s power is over all the nations of the earth

Matthew 4:8-9

Satan’s power is over all the nations of the earth. That could be very frightening when we realize he can influence men in such a way that they are not even aware that they are being influenced toward evil. His power is so extensive that he is over all the nations of the earth. Jesus calls him the ruler of this world (John 14:30). He affects people’s attitudes by moving our reasoning processes toward satisfaction of the self. He gives disinformation and stirs up our spirit.

Here is what is so perverse about this: It is not evil for one to take care of himself. What is evil is to make the satisfaction of the self more important than God or others. We are to serve God before all else (the great commandment), and the second is like it—we are on an equal par with others physically. Nowhere are we given the right or privilege by God to make ourselves greater than or more important than God or other human beings.

We can imagine the direction Satan is going to move us toward—to the point that satisfaction of the self becomes more important than conforming to what God says is the limit of our authority. In other words, he will push us toward making ourselves greater or more important than righteousness or truth.

John W. Ritenbaugh
Satan (Part 3)

2 Corinthians 4:4

Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

This unforgettable account of Muhammad Ali’s rise and self-creation. A master storyteller at the height of his powers,  america’s most dynamic modern hero.

Prophecy Against the Prince of Tyre

Ezekiel 28

28 The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre, Thus says the Lord God:

“Because your heart is proud,
    and you have said, ‘I am a god,
I sit in the seat of the gods,
    in the heart of the seas,’

yet you are but a man, and no god,
    though you make your heart like the heart of a god—
you are indeed wiser than Daniel;
    no secret is hidden from you;
by your wisdom and your understanding
    you have made wealth for yourself,
and have gathered gold and silver
    into your treasuries;
by your great wisdom in your trade
    you have increased your wealth,
    and your heart has become proud in your wealth—
therefore thus says the Lord God:
Because you make your heart
    like the heart of a god,
therefore, behold, I will bring foreigners upon you,
    the most ruthless of the nations;
and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of your wisdom
    and defile your splendor.
They shall thrust you down into the pit,
    and you shall die the death of the slain
    in the heart of the seas.
Will you still say, ‘I am a god,’
    in the presence of those who kill you,
though you are but a man, and no god,
    in the hands of those who slay you?
10 You shall die the death of the uncircumcised
    by the hand of foreigners;
    for I have spoken, declares the Lord God.”

He had only 5 losses in career.  He was also a boxer promoter rather than just a boxer. Muhammad Ali is Also at #1 in List of Top 10 Greatest Muslim Athletes of All Time….sporteology.com

President Obama tribute to Muhammad Ali

President Obama tribute to Muhammad Ali with the book Goat. A GOAT (acronym for Greatest Of All Time) is one huge treatise in eight-color print – 792 pages, consisting of over 600,000 words (collecting the best essays, interviews and writing on Ali) and over 3,000 images.

The Goat – Baphomet

Goat is also a reference to the GOAT of Mendes.

Church of Satan

The actual image of a goat in a downward-pointing pentagram first appeared in the 1897 book La Clef de la Magie Noire by Stanislas de Guaita. It was this image that was later adopted as the official symbol—called the Sigil of Baphomet—of the Church of Satan, and continues to be used among Satanists.

”Float like a butterfly sting like a Bee” Ali

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 King James Version (KJV)

55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.

57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

The sting of death is sin

Yesterday i spent some time on YouTube listening to those old interviews of Muhammad Ali. The man did n’t need no teleprompter. In the eyes of the world, he was the was one of the greatest orators, Obama doesn’t come close. He was inspirational and dynamic. He was a lighting force. He talked the talk and walked the walk and made history come alive. He was a without doubt the greatest boxer the world has ever seen.  Muhammad Ali is held in incredibly high esteem across in the world, almost all political, racial and demographic lines. He was born Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1942

Muhammad Ali, died at the age of 74, was a towering figure in the world of sports. But he should be remembered, as Nation sports columnist Dave Zirin put it in an article for the Los Angeles Times, not as “a sanctified sports hero,” but a “powerful, dangerous political force.”

Satan extalted himself like God

History of Satan

The history of Satan began with riches and honor. Satan had a glorious future. Then he became jealous and proud. He refused to repent and his future became dark. The events of history continue as Satan comes to earth and tries to become the god of this world.

As you read the history of Satan, know that Jesus is stronger than Satan. Jesus loves you and desires to save you.

History of Satan – Past

Satan was created by God thousands of years ago as a perfect angel. Satan was called Lucifer and he lived in heaven.Lucifer was above every other angel in heaven. His appearance was beautiful and dazzling. He radiated light and glory. He was covered with gold and shimmering jewels. Lucifer was the Chief Covering angel and he worked in the throne room of God.

Lucifer became proud

Just over 6,000 years ago God and Jesus had a private meeting and Lucifer was not included. Lucifer became jealous. He set out on a campaign to prove that he was above Jesus. Lucifer began to be proud of his own glory and wisdom.

“Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor.” Ezekiel 28:17

“you have set your heart as the heart of a god.” Ezekiel 28:6

Over time one third of the angels in heaven chose to side with Lucifer and to worship him instead of God. The Most High made tireless efforts to persuade Lucifer to repent and return to God. Lucifer almost relented, but he would not give up his pride and humble himself. He refused to admit that he was wrong.

Lucifer thrown out of heaven

Eventually Lucifer became entrenched in his pride and God could no longer influence him. God reluctantly removed Lucifer from his position of Chief Covering angel. Lucifer was thrown out of heaven, along with the angels who had chosen to follow him.

“How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’” Isaiah 14:12-14

History of Satan – Present

Satan is alive and real. He got the name Satan after he was thrown out of heaven. Satan and his angels are demons. They live in the spirit world. They tempt and influence people on earth, but most of the time they are invisible to us.

Satan has many names. He is also called the devil, Dragon, Serpent, Beelzebub, Abaddon, Apollyon and many other names. The names of Satan lists many of his names from the Bible.

History of Satan – Future

Very soon Satan will be released from the spirit world. He will appear on earth in a glorious, physical body. Then Satan will be called the beast. He will pretend to be God and he will have the appearance of God.

The beast is the name for Satan when he comes visibly to the earth claiming that he is God. His demons will come with him and they will appear to be angels from heaven.

How long will be beast be on earth? Satan will be given 3 ½ years as the visible god of this world. During this time he will try to convince every person on earth to worship him. Do not be deceived. He is not God and you should not worship him.
Who will worship the beast?

History of Satan – Ultimate End

Satan will be physically on this earth for 3 ½ years. During that time he will disguise himself as God. After the 3 ½ years he will be put in the bottomless pit for 1,000 years. During the 1,000 years Satan will not be allowed to tempt any people.

“1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while.” Revelation 20:1-3

At the end of the 1,000 years Satan will be released from the bottomless pit for a short time. He will gather the wicked together and they will fight against God and His people. God will bring fire down from heaven to destroy the wicked. Satan will be cast into the lake of fire. He will never again tempt any person.

“7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Revelation 20:7-10

The universe will be eternally secure from sin and Satan. Sin will never rise again.

“What do you conspire against the LORD? He will make an utter end of it. Affliction will not rise up a second time.” Nahum 1:9

Very soon Satan will come as the beast. Who is the beast? tells more about his coming to earth.

Ezekiel 28:12-14

12 “You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God;
Every precious stone was your covering:
The sardius, topaz, and diamond,
Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold.
The workmanship of your timbrels and pipes
Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 You were the anointed cherub who covers;
I established you;
You were on the holy mountain of God;
You walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.”

Ali Died in Phoenix, Satanic Symbolism

phoenixrising1

The Phoenix Rising From the Ashes

”The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.” (Revelations 17:8)

In ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology, the phoenix is a mythical bird associated with the Egyptian sun god Ra and the Greek god Phoibos Apollo (Apollyon or Abaddon in Hebrew). It is a symbol of death and resurrection.

The phoenix never existed. It was a large bird, much like an eagle. Looks to be same symbol, and symbol of Lucifer, and could be link to the name Quetzalcoatl which means Feathered Serpent‘, bringing together the quetzal bird and the snake

Lately, the rising of the Phoenix ritual is being displayed all around us from ceremonies to TV shows, music albums and even some strange incidents around the globe. The question: Why?

According to Manly P. Hall (°33 Freemason) the Phoenix will rise again: Exposing Babylon

In mythology, the phoenix is a bird that represents regeneration or rebirth. I’m sure this is why the media is told to initially say he died in Phoenix. Never forget that he’s a media made personality and no matter how the media portrays him, never allow it to alter your perception of what’s going on

The time will come when the secret wisdom shall again be the dominating religious and philosophical urge of the world. The day is at hand when the doom of dogma shall be sounded. The great theological Tower of Babel, with its confusion of tongues, was built of bricks of mud and the mortar of slime. Out of the cold ashes of lifeless creeds, however, shall rise phoenix like the ancient Mysteries.” (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages, 2003 Edition, original text published in 1928)

“’The Phoenix, or Bennu is believed to be a divine bird going back to Egypt…This Phoenix destroys itself in flames and then rises from the ashes. Most occultists believe that the Phoenix is a symbol of Lucifer who was cast down in flames and who (they think ) will one day rise triumphant. This, of course, also relates to the rising of Hiram Abiff, the Masonic ‘christ.’” Burns, Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated, pp. 121-23

Muhammad Ali’s Funeral used to usher in The the New World Order Religion

”One Tongue, One Religion, One God”

The bible says in the latter days that  some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1

Dr. Kevin Cosby, the senior pastor at St. Stephen Church in Louisville, Kentucky, delivered this speech Friday at the funeral of boxing great Muhammad Ali, reflecting on how his legacy was so closely tied to the story of Civil Rights.

”Before James Brown said, I’m black and I’m proud, Muhammad Ali said, I’m black and I’m pretty. He dared to love black people at a time when black people had a problem loving themselves BUT Pastor. Kevin Cosby failed to PREACH the The good News of our Lord and saviour Jesus The Christ to the nations? Instead he gave an incredible charged speech, in-sighting to Ali as being the negro’s saviour.

The gospel (Greek: εὐαγγέλιον euangélion; Old English: gospel), or the Good News, is the news of the coming of the Kingdom of God (Mark 1:14-15), and of Jesus‘s death on the cross and resurrection to restore people’s relationship with God. It may also include the descent of the Holy Spirit upon believers and the second comingof Jesus.

All men have sinned which makes the all human race Black not as in colour but in deeds and actions therefore we can’t we proud of sin and can’t speak or preach such EVIL. We must first realise we’re Black and ashamed of our SIN, We must REPEAT and  turn away from that which is Evil. Genesis 3:10

Romans 5:12ESV /

Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned.

Revelation 1:8King James Version (KJV)

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

The bible says in the latter days that  some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. 1 Timothy 4:1

For the time will come when men will not tolerate sound doctrine, but with itching ears they will gather around themselves teachers to suit their own desires”. 2 Timothy 4:3

”…teachers to suit their own desires”  2 Timothy 4:3

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

….reprove, rebuke, exhort….

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

…they shall turn away their ears from the truth…

And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry2 Timothy 4King James Version (KJV)

Muhammad Ali was buried Friday at Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Kentucky, after one last drive through his hometown in a motorcade bearing his remains. The processional passed important spots in Ali’s life before heading to the ceremony for the private burial.

Rousing tributes have been paid to boxing legend Muhammad Ali at a memorial service in his home city of Louisville, Kentucky Muslim, Christian, Jewish and other speakers spoke of his fight for civil rights, while a message from President Barack Obama praised his originality.

The interfaith event took place hours after thousands said farewell as his coffin passed through city streets. Ali was buried in a private ceremony attended by friends and family. The ex-heavyweight champion and rights activist died last Friday aged 74.

The service, attended by dignitaries and by several thousand people who acquired free tickets, was held at the KFC Yum! Centre.

It started with a Koran reading in Arabic. Imam Hamzah Abdul Malik recited Sura Fosselat, Prostration chapter 41 verses 30-35, which includes the words: “Truly those who say our Lord is God and are righteous, the angels will descend upon them saying have neither fear nor sadness but rather rejoice in this paradise that you have been promised.”

Local Protestant minister Kevin Cosby said: “Before James Brown said ‘I’m black and I’m proud’, Muhammad Ali said ‘I’m black and I’m pretty’.”

Rabbi Michael Lerner attacked injustice against black people and Muslims, saying “the way to honour Muhammad Ali is to be Muhammad Ali today – speak out and refuse to follow the path of conformity.” Ali’s wife Lonnie told the crowd: “If Muhammad didn’t like the rules, he rewrote them. His religion, his beliefs, his name were his to fashion, no matter what the cost. Muhammad wants young people of every background to see his life as proof that adversity can make you stronger. It cannot rob you of the power to dream, and to reach your dreams”.

” Former US President Bill Clinton described Ali as “a free man of faith”. He said: “I think he decided very young to write his own life story. I think he decided that he would not be ever disempowered. Not his race, not his place, not the expectations of others whether positive or negative would strip from him the power to write his own story.”

Valerie Jarrett, an aide to President Obama who knew the boxer personally, read a letter from the president describing Ali as “bigger, brighter and more influential than just about anyone in his era… Muhammad Ali was America. Muhammad Ali will always be America. What a man.” The president was not there, as he was attending his eldest daughter Malia’s graduation.

”He was a tremendous bolt of lightning created by Mother Nature”.

Comedian Billy Crystal said: “Thirty-five years after he stopped fighting, [Ali was] still the champion of the world”. He was a tremendous bolt of lightning created by Mother Nature. Muhammad Ali struck us in the middle of America’s darkest night and his intense light shone on America and we were able to see clearly.”

Jesus told them: I saw Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning… Luke 10:18

Among those attending the service were King Abdullah of Jordan.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attended Thursday’s prayer ceremony and had been due at the service, but cut short his visit to the US. The reasons for his departure are not clear, though there are reports of differences with the funeral’s organisers.

The Hidden Agenda of the Ecumenical Movement

‘Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you who have escaped from the nations. They have no knowledge, who carry the wood of their carved image, and pray to a god that cannot save…’Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other’ (Isaiah 45:20,22).    ‘For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus’ (1 Timothy 2:5).    ‘Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved’ (Acts 4:12).

In recent years, many Christians have expressed disquiet with what is popularly known as the Ecumenical Movement. In response to Biblical calls for Christian unity, this movement — operating at both formal and informal levels — seeks to bring all Christian denominations and organisations into a universal conglomerate. If the prime objective of those behind this movement was to unite all believers in the cause of God’s truth and to preach the fullness of the Gospel with love and power to a spiritually corrupt and needy world, I would be the first to gather with them. I would not want to oppose our Lord’s prayer, in His last great discourse, for believers to manifest their unity as an evangelistic model to unbelievers (John 17:20-23). I can fully identify with those in the Ecumenical Movement who have a heartfelt desire to see an end to sectarianism and unbiblical divisiveness. But the knowledge that there is a hidden agenda of global proportions behind the work of the modern Ecumenical Movement has motivated me to expose its historical and developmental roots.

Satan-inspired movements

Among the more prominent characteristics of the many deceptions which have plagued the Church from its beginnings are the subtlety of their origin and the stealth of their development. Never has there been such a need for believers to discern that when Satan-inspired movements are at work in the Church, they never appear to be malevolent but, rather, present themselves as being highly desirable and so filled with spiritual integrity that they are capable of deceiving the Lord’s own people, if such a thing is possible (cf. Matthew 24:24). The Lord Jesus was referring to this mode of deception when he described false prophets as ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ (Matthew 7:15). Similarly, Paul the Apostle warned that Satan cleverly disguises himself as an ‘angel of light’ in order to conceal his darkness (2 Corinthians 11:14). As that discerning early Church father, Irenæus of Lyons (c.AD 130-200), has put it:.Alan Morrison

The incomparable Gorgeous George

Gorgeous George, a villain of the first order, wore robes that looked like they had been lifted from Liberace’s closet

pretty

Gorgeous George is an effeminate pretty-boy who, if he’s not anoutright cross-dresser, at least dresses, looks, and acts very androgynous. He wears sequined robes and feather boas, he keeps his hair perfectly coiffed, his nails perfectly manicured, and if somebody hits him in the face, watch out! By presenting an effete image, coupled with the standard heel tactics of lying and cheating, he inflames the anger of the crowd. Gorgeous George never outright says that he’s gay – it’s constantly implied and hinted at, but if he actually admitted it, it wouldn’t be Gorgeous George anymore.

Gorgeous George

Gorgeous George blurred the line between good guy and bad guy and also confused the issue between macho and effeminate. After his short exchange with Gorgeous George, Cassius became the most vocal and opinionated athlete in America.

“A lot of people will pay to see someone shut your mouth. So keep on bragging, keep on sassing, and always be outrageous.”

John 6:32-44

38 For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.40 For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

Jesus was humble, and honoured his Father in Heaven

And ·when he was living [L being found in appearance/likeness] as a ·man [human being], he humbled himself and was fully obedient to God, even ·when that caused his [to the point of] death—death on a cross.

Habakkuk 2:4 – Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith.

James 4.6 – “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart

Mark 12:30-31King James Version (KJV)

30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Mystery Religion Church and Christianity – William Cooper

Mystery Religion Church and Christianity

All of these organized religions have bastardized the teachings of Christ — have corrupted the teachings of Jesus. And most of them are helping to lead you into slavery in the New World Order. In those days,] great signs and wonders were performed as God confirmed his word with signs following. True Christianity, [ladies and gentlemen,] anointed by the Holy Spirit, swept the world like a prairie fire. Nothing could stop it; no matter how many Christians the emperor crucified, no matter how many Christians were thrown to the animals in the Roman circus, one hundred fold sprang up to take their place. This movement encircled the mountains and crossed the oceans.

It made kings tremble and tyrants fearful. It was said of those early Christians that they had turned the world literally upside down! — so powerful was their message and Spirit. I’m talking about the true Christian teachings of Jesus Christ, in the way that it was followed in the early days of Christ’s Church — not Rome’s church, not Baptist’s church, not Lutheran’s church, not Orthodox’s church, but Christ’s Church. Before too many years had passed…men began to set themselves up as “lords” over God’s people and places of the Holy Spirit. Instead of conquering by spiritual means and by truth. By truth! Not too many people in the world understand what truth even means today…as in the early days — men began to substitute their ideas and their methods. in place of the teachings that Christ gave us. The Inquisition came from these people, not from Jesus Christ. The Crusades came from these people, not from Jesus Christ. Attempts to merge paganism into Christianity were being made even in the days when our New Testament was being written, [folks,] for Paul mentioned that the “mystery of iniquity” was already at work […already at work], [and he] warned that there would come a “falling away” and some would “depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils”…William Cooper

 

Mystery Babylon – The Sun of God – Nimrod

Transcribed by Dok. You’re listening to the Hour of the Time. I’m your host, William Cooper.

Tonight, ladies and gentleman, we begin the origin, the history, the dogma, and the identity of the ancient Mystery Religions, which are now known as the Mystery Schools, the Order of the Quest, Freemasonry, the Ancient Order of the Rose and Cross, The Knights Templar, the Sovereign and Military Order of the Knights of Malta, the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, the Prieuré de Sion, the Thule Society, or sometimes known as the Thuley Society, the Order, the Skull and Bones, the Russell Trust, the Jason Society, the Scroll and Key, the Illuminati, and I could go on, and on, and on, and on.

But the most important thing to realize is that they all have been collectively known throughout the ages as the Mystery Schools. The Illuminati, which literally means, “illumined ones”. International Socialism, Communism, they are all one and the same as you will come to know, and you will understand perfectly how they’ve been able to infiltrate all of our society.

What you hear tonight does not necessarily reflect my views, or beliefs, or religion…nor those of WWCR.

(opening music: I Can See Clearly Now, written by Johnny Nash, performed by Liza Minnelli)

That song will have a clearer meaning to you as we progress in your education into the Mystery Religion. But we have to begin in the beginning, with every story and every history. And we have to begin at the beginning of mankind. And the beginning is the beginning according to the Mystery Religion. And they believe, wholeheartedly, that man is a product of evolution, not of an extraterrestrial race, and not of the creation of some benevolent god.

[Reading from The Future of Man, written by Robert Klark Graham]:

“[They believe that] the tree-dwelling ancestors of man were among the most intelligent beings of their distant age.

“And when these creatures finally abandoned the trees and walked fully upright, freeing their hands to serve as implements of their minds as well as their bodies, there began the most successful evolutionary drive toward higher intelligence ever witnessed in Nature.

“As ground dwellers, these creatures were easy victims of the great predators, who hunted them down by day and surprised them at night as they huddled in clearings or in caves. They could not compete in strength, ferocity or speed with their attackers. Armed with little except their hands and what their complex brains enabled them to do with those hands, they had to think or die. For untold thousands of years most of them met early, violent deaths. Only a few in each generation had the good fortune and the ability to outwit their enemies. [And] these favored ones survived long enough to have and rear offspring. The unwary, maladroit or stupid died early. [William Cooper: And folks, I’m afraid that the stupid, who live today, are going to die early also. But back to the beginning.] Their offspring, if they had any, were left to starve or be eaten by predators.

“Natural selection was operating on the earliest types of man with grimmest intensity. Perhaps no other extant creature has undergone so severe and protracted a period of selective elimination. Yet here and there small groups managed to survive because they had the intelligence to use sticks, stones and clubs to defend themselves. Crude and puny as these implements were, they were weapons and their possessors were the first creatures who could kill without having to come in direct contact with their antagonists.

“‘As the great beasts grew larger and either faster or more formidable, man became ever more watchful, ever more successful in pitting his wits against mass and power, more and more adept at slipping out of trouble, and as the challenge grew greater, so did his brain, for the laggards on both sides got left behind in the race for the future.’ [Quoted from Norman J. Bernill’s Man’s Emerging Mind]”

[William Cooper]: …and we are still engaged in that race for the future.

“The steps in the development, of man’s brain are revealed by the progressively larger braincases which appeared with the passage of centuries. Basing our judgment on the improvements in tools and weapons which took place as the intelligence of their inventors increased, we can construct some of the ways in which natural selection may have worked to bring about a doubling in size of the human brain.

“Many edible nuts are too hard for even a caveman to crack between his teeth. Accordingly, they were useless to early man, until some genius of his day discovered that any nut could be opened if it were just placed up on one stone and stuck hard with another. Better fed, the family of this innovator proliferated while the others died off.

“Perhaps centuries later, while a man sat cracking nuts between two stones, one stone broke and the broken edge cut his hand. Previously, men in the same situation had thrown the broken stone away and nursed their cuts. But this man, this man started thinking. [William Cooper: He possessed an original thought.] Since the edge had cut through his skin and drawn blood, it might also cut through the skin of the small animals he caught, making it easier to get at the meat. The first knife was invented! He and those close to him, and those intelligent enough to imitate him, increased in number [William Cooper: and the rest died off]. They had a cutting tool which made it possible for them to skin and eat meat in less time, so they had more time for hunting. Many of the descendants of this exceptional man became increasingly skillful at breaking and chipping hard stones into sharper tools and weapons.”

[William Cooper]: And if you’ve been to a museum of natural history, and you’ve seen these fine, beautiful flint arrowheads and spearheads, then you know that it took patience and great skill, and this means a further development of the human mind.

“Natural selection, favoring better knife makers, went on for hundreds of thousands of years [William Cooper: according to those who guard the Secrets of the Ages, and even according to modern science].

“A great many centuries later a young father foraging for his brood, may have come upon a long straight stick, splintered at one end. [Well] he pulled and chewed at the splinters until only one stout point was left [William Cooper: or at least that’s how we can imagine that it was done]. It seemed to him a very useful stick, for it was sharper than the digging sticks, which the women used. He may have remembered a night during his boyhood, when a great cat had charged his family’s campsite and dragged away a younger sister. Now that he had small children of his own, the memory of that attack was ever present. Lately, he had seen fresh panther tracks. Another family, not far away, had been attacked and the mother had been killed. His dawning intelligence told him his pointed stick might be a better weapon against big cats than the clubs which he and the other men carried. [So] for many days he kept the long stick near him, even when he was laughed at for having what was regarded as a woman’s tool.”

[William Cooper]: Not only did he possess a greater intellect than his fellow man, but he possessed more courage to resist their laughter.

“Then one night, he heard a faint rustling. He whispered a quick warning to his family. Suddenly, a dim shape charged at him in the darkness. Kneeling, he raised the point of his long stick toward the beast. It sprang, clawed at him savagely, then fled! The creature had struck the point so hard that the blunt end of the stick was shoved deep, deep into the ground.

“Next morning, following a trail of blood, the man found a panther dead from a punctured chest. The long, sharp stick had saved his life and the lives of his family members. In the same situation less perceptive men, armed only with clubs, would have been killed.

“From that time he, his sons and their sons, carried impaling sticks whenever big predators were near. Foresight, genetically transmitted to their descendants, had given them a new weapon, which they used with devastating effect against their natural enemies.

“Perhaps many generations later a bright descendant of the inventor of the impaling stick mated with the daughter of a man who had thought of throwing a club at fruits, nuts and small animals on the lower branches of trees. Now and then, this brought down an extra meal.

“The man who knew how to defend his family from feline prowlers soon learned from his woman the new way to collect additional food. [And] their young family thrived and some of the children, with good mental inheritance from both sides of the family, showed an even higher order of intelligence than either of their parents.

With impaling sticks added to their clubs and cutting stones, men no longer had to be such furtive food gatherers. The hunted gradually evolved into hunters. And in times of famine when battles over food were fierce, those with impaling sticks threw them with deadly accuracy at members of other hunting bands. Sharper stone knives and spears gave a double survival advantage during times of crisis, but the most telling gains were the increasing sharpness of minds.

“‘However incomplete our knowledge of human ancestry, there [was] scarcely any doubt that the development of brain power, of intelligence, was the decisive force in the evolutionary process which culminated in the appearance of the species to which we belong. Natural selection [they believe] has brought about the evolutionary trends towards increasing brain power because brain power confers enormous adaptive advantages on its possessors. It is obviously brain power, not body power, which makes man, by far, the most successful, biological species which living matter has produced.’ [quote from Theodosius G. Dobzhansky’s book, Evolution, Genetics and Man]”

[Reading from That Old-Time Religion, written by Jordan Maxwell]:

“[Even with man’s new weapons and tools] it did not take him very long to decide that in this world the single greatest enemy to be feared was the darkness of night, and all the unknown dangers that came with it. Simply stated, ‘MAN’S FIRST ENEMY WAS DARKNESS.’

“Understanding this one fact alone, one can readily see why the greatest and most trustworthy friend the human race could ever have was, by far, heaven’s greatest gift to the world…that Glorious Rising Orb of Day [the Sun].”

[William Cooper]: And with this simple truth understood, we can now begin to unravel the most ancient, and still the most successful, religion upon the face of this earth. Its success lies in its ability to remain hidden from the rest of the people. But first, let me assure you, folks, that no people of the ancient world believed that the Sun to be God. In point of fact, every ancient culture and nation on earth have all used the Sun as the most logically appropriate symbol to represent the glory of the unseen creator of the heavens. In the Old Testament, it says, “The heavens are declaring the glory of God.” That’s in Psalms 19, verse 1. In the Old Testament, “The sun of righteousness will arise.” Malachi, chapter 4, verse 2.

“The ancient peoples reasoned that no one on Earth could ever lay claim of ownership to the Great Orb of Day. It must belong to the unseen Creator of the Universe…[It became], figuratively speaking, not man’s, but ‘GOD’S SUN’. Truly, ‘God’s Sun/Son was…THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

“As I stated before, [folks,] in the dark cold of night man realized his utter vulnerability to the elements. Each night, mankind was forced to wait for the [rising of the sun] to chase away the physical and mental insecurity brought on by the darkness. Therefore, the morning Sun focused man’s attention on heavenly dependence for his frail, short existence on Earth, and in doing so, it became the appropriate symbol of divine benevolence from heaven.”

[William Cooper]: For without the sun, there was no light, there was no warmth, and nothing could grow or live upon the face of this earth. So, just as a small fire brought limited light into man’s own little world of darkness, likewise, the great fire of day served the whole earth with its heavenly presence. For this reason, it was said that the God of the Bible was a consuming fire in heaven, and so he was.

“It was accepted by all that man was bound to a life on Earth, but the sky was the [William Cooper: abode of God’s son. He resided up there, in heaven].

“Ancient man saw in his male offspring his own image and likeness, and his own existence as a father was proved by the person of his son. It was assumed that God’s ‘Sun’ was but a visible representative of the unseen Creator in heaven. So it was said, ‘When you have seen the Sun, you have seen the Father.’ [Said another way,] ‘The Father is glorified in his Sun.’

“Ancient man [William Cooper: even with his limited intelligence at that time] had no problem understanding that all life on Earth depended directly on life-giving energy from the Sun. Consequently, all life was lost without the sun. It followed that God’s ‘Sun’ was nothing less than [man’s savior].

“Since…energy from the Sun gave life, and we sustained our very existence by taking energy in from our food (which came directly from God’s Sun), the Sun must give up its life supporting energy so that we may continue to live. ‘God’s Sun [must give] his life for us to live.'”

[William Cooper]: I know that if you are intelligent out there listening, you are making some connections here. You see, the Mystery Schools believe that Christianity is a perversion of the Mysteries.

“While it was plainly true that our life came from and was sustained each day by ‘Our Savior…God’s Sun’, it was and would be true only as long as the Sun would return each morning. [And] our hope of salvation would be secure only in a ‘RISEN’ savior. For if he did not rise from his grave of darkness, all would be lost. All the world waited for his ‘imminent return’ [each morning]. The…Father would never leave us at the mercy of this world of darkness. [The] Heavenly promise…was surely that…’He would come again’…to light our path, and save those lost in the darkness…

“Logically, even if man himself died, as long as the Sun comes up each day, life on Earth will continue forever. Therefore, it was said in the ancient texts that everlasting life was ‘the gift’…the Father gives through his Sun. For… ‘God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten SUN that we may have life everlasting’…on Earth! [William Cooper: And the ancient text did not mean] for you personally – but ON EARTH…everlasting life!”

[William Cooper]: That is the interpretation of the Mystery Schools.

“Since evil and harm lurked at every turn in the fearful dark of night, all evil or harmful deeds were naturally, the…’works of darkness.’

“[And] with the return of the Sun each morning, man felt more secure in his world and therefore, was at peace. Therefore, God’s ‘Sun’ was with his warm rays of hope…The Great ‘Prince of Peace’.

“And of course the reverse was equally true. The…evil of night was ruled over by none other than…[the] ‘Prince of Darkness’ [William Cooper: Hence, evil is of the dark, or the Devil].”

It was only a short step to see [that] ‘The Light of God’s Sun’ equated with [righteousness and] truth – and evil with darkness. From then on, it was simple to understand…LIGHT was GOOD – DARK was BAD.”

[William Cooper]: And the priests of the ancient Mystery Religion always followed the light. They always looked toward the East. They considered themselves to be illumined.

“That being true, then the Great Orb of Day (God’s Sun) could rightly say of itself [that], ‘I AM THE LIGHT’ [and the truth].

“We should all [William Cooper: in their words, not mine] ‘give thanks’ to the Father for sending us His ‘Sun’…”

[William Cooper]: …spelled S-U-N, in case some of you are getting confused. In every instance where I have mentioned the word sun, it has been in reference to the sun, S-U-N.

“For the peace and tranquility he brings to our life is even called ‘Solace’ [William Cooper: solace is from the word solar, which means sun]…”

[William Cooper]: Are you beginning to see the light? (laughs)

“We now have before us two cosmic brothers – one very good, and one very [bad]. One brings the ‘truth to light’ with the ‘light of truth’. The other is the opposite, or in opposition to the light – ‘The Opposer’…[the] Prince of [the] World of Darkness…

“It is at this point…we come to Egypt. More than 3,000 years before Christianity began, the early morning [Sun, the Savior] was pictured in Egypt as the ‘New Born Babe’. The infant savior’s name was ‘HORUS’.

“The early morning Sun, or ‘New Born Babe’, was pictured in two ways: the Dove – [known as the] Bringer of Peace, the Hawk – [the] God of War (who punishes the enemies of God!).”

[William Cooper]: Today, in government, we still use these terms, doves and hawks, and that’s how powerful this hidden religion is; is that we use the terms of this religion even today and know it not.

“At daybreak, this wonderful newborn child is of course ‘Born Again’ (hallelujah). Horus is Risen. [William Cooper: That is what hallelujah means.] Even today, when the Sun comes up, we see it on the “Horus-Risen”, or “HORIZON”. His life was also divided into 12 parts or 12 ‘Horus=hours’ [William Cooper: the twelve signs of the Zodiac].

“But now, what about the evil brother of God’s Sun, that…old Prince of Darkness himself? In the Egyptian belief system he was called ‘SET’ [William Cooper: or sometimes Typhon]. We are told in the Bible that when God’s Sun died, the world was left in the hands of the Prince of Darkness at… SUN-SET.”

[William Cooper]: SUN-SET. Do you understand? God’s Sun was killed by the Prince of Darkness, “SET”, at SUN-SET.

“It was generally observed that ‘God’s Sun’ could be depended upon to return in the same manner that he left – namely, ‘On a Cloud’…and ‘Every eye will see Him’…(unless, of course, you’re blind or dead).

“Keeping in mind that ‘God’s Sun’ not only represented the light of truth, but was put to death by His enemies who could not endure the light of truth in their life, it was taught by the ancients that the very act of opposing or denying the light of truth to the point of killing it, happened in one’s own mind! When we are confronted with harsh realities of life [the truth], the light of truth, which we do not wish to face, and which runs counter to our views, such truth is put to death by your mind, and in your head! Therefore, ‘God’s Sun’ – The Truth and The Light – is put to death at the ‘PLACE OF THE SKULL,’ or ‘SKULL PLACE,’ located somewhere between your ears! This putting to death of the light of hope in your mind is always accompanied by the two thieves: Regret for the past and Fear of the future.”

[William Cooper]: Don’t go away folks, we have to take a short break. I’ll be back right after this pause.

(break music: unknown instrumental piece)

[continuing reading from That Old-Time Religion]:

“And of course ‘God’s Sun’ goes to his death wearing a ‘corona’ – [Which in] Latin [means] ‘CROWN OF THORNS’. Remember the Statue of liberty? [William Cooper: It was given to us by Masonic France.] To this day, kings still wear a round crown of thorns, symbolizing the [rays of the sun].

“[Now] as far back as we can go into the ancient world [in our research], we find that all known cultures had a ‘THREE-IN-ONE’ [or] TRIUNE GOD. The very first trinity was simply the three stages of life of the sun: New Born at dawn, Mature or full grown [in its full power] at 12 noon, and old and dying, at the end of day (going back to The Father. All three were of course ONE DIVINITY! THE TRINTIY IS NOT MYSTERY [in the Mystery Schools]!!

“The Egyptians knew that the Sun was at its highest point in the sky (or high noon) when no shadow was cast by the pyramid. At that point, all Egypt offered prayers to the ‘Most High’ God!

“As stated before, to the ancients, the sky was the abode, or heavenly temple of the ‘MOST HIGH.’ Therefore, ‘God’s Sun’ was doing his heavenly Father’s work in the temple at [noon].

“The world of ancient man kept track of times and seasons by the movement of the Sun – daily, monthly and yearly. For this, the sundial was devised. Not only was the daily movement of the sun tracked on the round dial, but the whole year was charted on a round calendar dial. Examples [are]: Ancient Mexican, Mayan, Inca, Aztec, Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Egyptian, Celtic [or Celtic as some pronounce it], Aryan, etc. [And] with this method, certain new concepts emerged in the mind of ancient man.

“Since the Earth experienced four different seasons, all the same and equal (in time) each year, the round calendar was divided into four equal parts. This represented the complete story of the life of ‘God’s Sun’. This is also why we have, in the Bible, only four gospels. Of this point there can be no doubt. [For] Tertullian and many early church fathers stated this [exact fact themselves in their own writings].

“[And] this [the Mystery School claims] is why the famous painting of the ‘Last Supper’ pictures the 12 followers [or houses] of the Sun in four groups (of 3)…the seasons [with the Sun in the center alone.]!

“On the round surface of the yearly calendar, you draw a straight line directly across the middle, cutting the circle in half – one end being the point of the winter solstice, the other end being the point of the summer solstice. Then draw another straight line (crossing the first one). One end of the new line being the spring equinox, the other end being the autumn equinox. You now have the starting points for each of the four seasons. This is referred to by all major encyclopedias and reference works, both ancient and modern, as ‘The Cross of the Zodiac’. Thus, the life of God’s ‘Sun’ is on ‘the Cross’. This is why we see the round circle of the Sun on the crosses of Christian churches. The next time you pass a Christian church, look for the circle (Sun) on the cross.

“On December 22nd, the Sun, going south, reaches its lowest point in the sky (our winter solstice). At that lowest point, the Sun stops moving on the sundial for three days, Dec 22nd, Dec 23rd, and Dec 24th in the Southern Constellation known as the Southern Cross. Hence our Savior (dead for three days) died on THE CROSS. The ‘SOUTHERN CROSS CONSTELLATION,’ that is.

“This is the only time of the year [folks] that the Sun actually stops its movement in our sky [William Cooper: according to the Mystery Schools]. On the morning of Dec. 25th, the Sun begins its annual journey back to us in the northern hemisphere, bringing, of course, our spring. Therefore, on Dec 25th, the Sun is BORN AGAIN. And to this day, His worshipers celebrate His BIRTHDAY!

“It is at this point that we should look at the significance of the recurring number 12 in the Bible. First, 13 is said to be unlucky for humans. It is a heavenly number and represents…the Sun + ‘the 12’ = 13!”

[William Cooper]: Or Christ plus the 12 disciples equals 13. It’s unlucky for a different reason, folks, and I will explain that on another program. But it has to do with the persecution of the Mystery School, the Mystery Religion.

“It would be well to get a Bible Concordance and look to see how many times the number 12 is used in the entire Bible.”

[William Cooper]: Remember, the Mystery Religion is a religion of the heavens. Also, in the Bible you will find many combinations of the number seven. In the Mystery Religion, that represents the seven stars of the Pleiades. And you can see the emergence of the Mystery Religion in the UFO movement, when the Pleiadians come to talk to Billy Myers in Switzerland. (laughs) Oh my, how we are deceived by these people!

“[Here are a few examples of the use of the number 12 in the Bible]: the 12 Months of the Year, the 12 Apostles of the Sun, the 12 Tribes of Israel, the 12 Brothers of Joseph, the 12 Judges of Israel, the 12 Great Patriarchs, the 12 [Old Testament] Prophets, the 12 Kings of Israel, the 12 Princes of Israel, God’s Sun in Temple at 12 [and there are many more.]

“All of these examples and countless more derived directly from the ancient world’s fascination with the 12 Signs of the Zodiac.”

[William Cooper]: Now remember, folks, what I’m given you is the teachings of the Mystery Schools. This does not necessarily reflect any of my own beliefs, or my own religious beliefs, or those of WWCR. We cannot fight against these manipulators unless we know who they are and what they believe. Now, what you want to believe is your own business.

“As we noted before [folks], the year was divided into 12 equal parts, or months. And to each month was appointed a heavenly symbol or astrological ‘SIGN.’ [William Cooper: Each of these signs made up one season in the world of the heavens, thus divided into four separate seasons.] Each of the 12 monthly signs were called ‘HOUSES’ OF THE HEAVENLY ZODIAC…

“…The astronomers of Babylon divided the sky into twelve ‘houses.’ [William Cooper: They did this to account for the fact that the planets were not always exactly in the ecliptic, but appeared to wander a certain number of degrees either side of it.] They [therefore had to assume that] each sign of the Zodiac extended its influence through a fixed [portion] of the sky, which they thought of as a house [William Cooper: to which a planet could return when it completed one of its journeys about the sun]…The great god of the day had its house in Leo [William Cooper: Leo, the Lion of Judah], where he ruled at the head of his splendor; the Moon ruled in Cancer, at the right hand of the Sun…The other planets were given two houses. One for day and one for night. And since the Zodiac divided the sky into twelve equal [portions], each of these houses was also equal, comprising 30°, [or] one-twelfth of the 360° circle.

“[And] THE HOUSES/SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC were as follows: Aries was THE RAM or LAMB of God. Taurus THE BULL/GOLDEN CALF, Gemini THE TWINS [which represented] Cain-Abel, Jacob-Esau [or] Jesus-Satan [William Cooper: for in Mystery Babylon, Jesus and Satan are brothers, and in some sects of the mystery religion, they are the same entity], Cancer THE CRAB, Leo THE LION/of the tribe of Judah [that can be found in Revelations 5, verse 5], Virgo the VIRGIN/spring birth of God’s Sun…”

[William Cooper]: or Mary. Mary or Marie means pure, thus Mary the virgin, the mother of God, when God is reborn or born in the spring. And that is where the mother holding the child, Isis with the child, Horus, and all through the history of the world you will find a virgin holding a child in every culture, every language, in every continent, of this Earth.

“…Libra THE SCALES, Scorpio THE SCORPIAN, the back-biting traitor…Judas, Sagittarius THE ARCHER, Capricorn THE SEA-GOAT [or the goat of Mendes]. Aquarius, MAN WITH THE WATER PITCHER, Pisces THE TWO FISH.”

[William Cooper]: The age that we are leaving at this point in time, is the age of Pisces. And, according to the Mystery Religion, we are entering into the Age of Aquarius very soon in our future. And to them this has great meaning, for it means the dawn of the New Age, the age of the illumined man. The number of the man is 666 in the Mystery Religion.

“Today we have expressions when someone dies. We say things like, ‘They passed’ or ‘They Passed On’ or ‘They Passed Away.’ The ancients said ‘They Passed Over’ (from one life to another). [William Cooper: Over what? Over the river.] And so it was with the coming of spring, as God’s Sun is ‘Resurrected’ from the Death of Winter to His New Life (in spring). This is why Christians celebrate ‘The Resurrection’ with a Sun-Rise service at…’EASTER’…and the Jews, who knew [William Cooper: this ancient religion from their time in captivity in Babylon] celebrate the same with their…’PASSOVER.’

“With this knowledge, we now add the fact that the first [Decan] of the astrological sign of Virgo is ‘Coma’ – or the ‘desired one’ – of the nations. This was pictured by the ancient astrologers as a virgin girl holding a new born babe. Hence, our ‘Madonna and Child’ motif, so in the spring, or Virgo, God’s Sun is ‘Born of a Virgin.’ Incidentally, the astrological symbol for Virgo is the letter ‘M’ [or] ‘Marie’ [which] means ‘pure’, hence ‘M’-ary…the pure virgin!”

[William Cooper]: And all through every culture, you will sign…find other representations by other names of the virgin mother with the child. Isis with the child Horus, born of a magical intercourse, when Isis changes into a bird and flutters over the dead Osiris. Osiris representing the sun, Isis representing the moon. I will tell you the meaning of the child Horus, other than the Sun in the morning, probably on another episode of the Hour of the Time. Now, we belong to one another, according to the Mystery School. We are part of God’s creation. We are part of a great fraternity of man, according to them. We are creations voiced to sing praises to God as we gather in the morning, (laughs) the morning, folks, to pray. The very time of day recalls our creation and our new creation in Christ during the gathering time reflect on this mystery [sic]. Using the silence, the sounds of morning, the Psalms and other scriptures, be aware that the rising sun is the image of Christ, our sun and source of life, and that is taken right out of a Protestant church’s leaflet calling for the congregation to gather for the Easter sunrise service.

“Next, we read at I Peter [chapter 5 verse 4] that God’s Sun is the ‘Chief’ shepherd. This word ‘chief is very important. For at I Peter [chapter 2 verse 6] and again at [Ephesians chapter 2 verse 20] God’s Sun is called the ‘Chief Cornerstone’.

“[William Cooper: Now in our research in the mystery schools we find that the] word in Greek for ‘Chief Cornerstone’ simply meant the ‘Peak of a Pyramid’. [The ‘Peak of a Pyramid.] [The] corner foundation (stone) or, peak of the pyramid.

“The prefix akro- [or] (topmost) was added by the Jews to the already existing Greek adjective, goniaios [or] (at the corner). In that way the translators of Isaiah rendered the Hebrew word for ‘corner’ (pinna Isaiah 28:14), describing the stone which was a ‘sure foundation’ and which probably had reference to the future Messiah…well understood by the Christian writers, was that of an important Stone which was both akro- (a Peak) and a goniaios (a cornerstone). But there are four or more corners to a building, and a stone and a corner cannot be uniquely significant.”

[William Cooper]: Although you will find in Freemasonry the ceremony of laying a cornerstone for every building that is built, and you look at all the buildings in Washington, DC. You will see a cornerstone with the Masonic symbols and Masonic date of the Mystery Schools of the calendar of six thousand years.

“[Well, we found that we don’t believe that it can be] significant unless the stone be at the apex[, apex,] of a pyramid where all corners meet and bond together.”

[William Cooper]: …and that is the secret of the truncated pyramid missing the cap stone, on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States. For we have found in our research, that in the Mystery Religion the Master Mason is the cornerstone, or the peak, of the pyramid. The illumined man who functions as the eye of Horus, or the spy for the Mystery Schools, wherever he is at.

“Just as the great pyramid near Mexico City is called…the ‘Pyramid of The Sun,’ so also The Great Pyramid of Egypt was [actually] dedicated to Horus, ‘The Sun.’ A picture of this you may see on the back of any one-dollar bill. Above the pyramid [folks] is The Eye, the Sun – The Eye of Horus, The Sun (of God).

“The New Testament tells us three different times that God’s Sun was taught by and learned all things from the Father. He was…the PUPIL.

“We are told at Matthew [chapter 14 versus 17 and 19] that God’s Sun tends to His people’s needs with ‘Two Fishes’. The two fishes being the astrological sign all astrologers know as Pisces.

“Thus, we have had for almost 2000 years God’s Sun ruling in His ‘kingdom’ or sign of Pisces/Two Fishes. As stated before, these signs are called houses. Therefore, Pisces is the ‘Lord’s House’ at this time. Truly, the Greatest ‘Fish’ Story Ever Told!

“According to astrology, sometime after the year 2010…”

[William Cooper]: Catch that date, folks: the year 2010 and remember when I told you about 2001. Arthur C. Clark is obviously a member of the Mystery Schools, and Stanley Kubrick, who’s responsible for making the movie, is obviously a member also.

“According to astrology, sometime after the year 2010 the Sun will enter into His new Sign, or His new Kingdom, as it was called by the ancients. This next coming Sign [or] Kingdom, soon to be upon us, will be, according to the Zodiac, the House or Sign of Aquarius. So when we read at Luke [chapter 22 verse 10], we now understand why God’s Sun states that He and His followers, at the last Passover, are to go into ‘the house of the man with the water pitcher’. So we see in the coming millennium, God’s Sun will bring us into His new Kingdom or House of Aquarius (the man with the water pitcher).

“Once we realize that in Astrology, each month is assigned one of the so-called ‘Houses’ of the Zodiac and in heaven are 12 houses [or] (12 monthly signs), then the words we read of God’s Sun saying ‘In my Father’s house are many mansions’, makes sense (when translated correctly). The proper translation is as follows: Father’s House = Heavenly Abode, Mansions = Houses.

“So, correctly read in the original text, we read: ‘In my father’s heavenly abode are many houses.’ Yes, 12 to be exact [according to the Mystery Religion of Babylon]!

“…[By careful intention and study of the houses,] you will be enable to interpret Horoscopes. [It is well to] remember [that] just as the influence of one Planet in one Sign may be affected for good or ill by another Planet in another Sign, so the influence of Planets in Signs in general may be [strengthened, weakened, enhanced, afflicted or otherwise altered] by the influence of Planets and houses [according to their beliefs].

“…[A rule of thumb to remember is that] signs measure your inherent qualities, the Planets influence those qualities, and the Houses indicate directions for them. In other words, the Houses indicate certain things, and a Planet in a House influences or activates the things indicated.”

[William Cooper]: Now, this is all according to their religion. If you want more explanation, please ask Nancy Reagan.

“Anyone familiar with modern-day Christianity must surely know we are said to be living in the ‘Last Days’. This teaching is, in part, based on the idea expressed in Matthew [chapter 28, verse 20] of The King James Bible. Where God’s Sun says, “I will be with you even to the End of the world.” End of the world??!! [In] another simple mistranslation to clarify [William Cooper: and there are many in the Bible] with a proper understanding of the actual words used. This ‘end of the world’ is translated differently in the various Bibles. Some say ‘End of Time’, [some say] ‘End of the Days’, and still others say ‘Conclusion of this system of things.’ So what does all this talk of the ‘End Times/End of Days’ really mean?

“[Well] here is the simple answer [folks, according to the Mystery Schools]. When the scripture speaks of ‘the end of the world,’ the actual word used is not, I repeat, is not end of the world. The actual word in Greek is ‘Aeon, which, when correctly translated, means ‘Age,’ that’s spelled [folks] A-G-E! Any library will have Bible concordances. Strong’s Bible Concordance is a good reference work to use here. Look up the word ‘age’ in any secular dictionary or Bible Concordance. There you will find the word for ‘age’ is from the Greek ‘Aeon’ [or A-E-O-N]. Remembering that in Astrology each of the 12 houses (or signs) of the Zodiac corresponds to a 2000 year period of time, called an ‘age,’ we now know we are 1992 years into the House or Age of Pisces. Now, correctly understood, it can rightly be said that we today, in fact, are living in the ‘LAST DAYS.’

“Yes, [according to the Mystery Schools] we are in the last days of the old ‘Age of Pisces’. Soon, God’s Sun will come again into His New Kingdom or ‘New Age’ [William Cooper: and that is where all this new-age movement and new age comes from…’New Age’] of Aquarius (man with the water pitcher – Luke [chapter 22 verse 10]).”

[William Cooper]: That’s right, folks, the new Aeon or the New Age. This, according to the Mystery Schools, is the perversion of Christianity. This is the theme of the Bible, God’s Sun in his coming kingdom age, the new age of Aquarius. Now, what you choose to believe is your business. Remember, don’t get mad at me. I am teaching you the Mystery Religion of ancient Babylon, and I am telling you right now many people practice this mystery religion in secret, and they hate Christians. They hate Christians because they believe that Christianity is a perversion of their religion, and thus is their enemy.

“When viewing the shimmering rays of sunlight on a body of water at dawn or sunset, [according to the Mystery Schools] one can still see today, how God’s Sun ‘walks on water.'”

[William Cooper]: Good night, and God bless you all.

The Hebrew Yahushua vs The Greek Jesus

Yeshua (Jesus) wrestled with the Pharisees

Presenter: Nehemia Gordon,  is a Karaite Jew. He was born to a Jewish family of Rabbis. He rejected the Talmud and became a Karaite. 

Please note: I’ve posted this video for reference to show how the Jewish Rabbi’s keep their traditions rather than obeying God’s commandments. What you hear in this video does not necessarily reflect my views, or beliefs, or religion. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe Jesus is Lord and died for our sins. The Messiah

The issues over which Yeshua wrestled with the Pharisees are simply not understood by modern Christians; nor are his most important instructions followed by those who claim to be his disciples. Former Pharisee, Nehemia Gordon, a Dead Sea Scrolls scholar and Semitic language expert, explores the ancient Hebrew text of the Gospel of Matthew from manuscripts long hidden away in the archives of Jewish scribes. Gordon’s research reveals that the more “modern” Greek text of Matthew, from which the Western world’s versions were translated, depicts “another Jesus” from the Yeshua portrayed in the ancient Hebrew version of Matthew. Gordon explains the life-and-death conflict Yeshua had with the Pharisees as they schemed to grab the reins of Judaism in the first century, and brings that conflict into perspective for both Jew and Christian alike.

Karaite Nehemia Gordon on Yeshua

UPDATE: It appears Gordon is being dishonest when he says, in the letter below, “I do not try to convince people to change their faith”. See Gordon – an anti-missionary?

Nehemia Gordon, perhaps the most prominent Karaite Jew, dispels rumors about his relationship to Yeshua.

Even though Gordon does not believe Yeshua is the Messiah, his statements and approach to Yeshua are honorable! A nice change from the ugly rhetoric and actions of shameful anti-missionaries. He talks openly about Yeshua and Messianic gentiles, and I think you fine blog readers would be interested to read it:

It’s been several months since the publication of my book “A Prayer to Our Father”, which I wrote together with Keith E. Johnson, a Christian pastor from North Carolina. This book explores the Hebrew origins of what is commonly known as the “Lord’s Prayer”. Many of my Jewish brothers and sisters have expressed great concern over the book. Some have even speculated that I have secretly converted to Christianity and am leading others into the Christian faith. Some of my Christian friends have joined in this speculation thinking that perhaps there is a “surprise ending” to the book in which I proclaim my faith in Jesus. On the flip side, some Messianics are spreading the false rumor that I allegedly hold secret meetings during my speaking tours in which I try to convince “believers” to abandon their faith. I hate to disappoint the rumormongers but none of these is true.

I have not converted to Christianity nor do I attempt to convince anyone to change their faith. I suppose the reason for these false speculations is that some people have a hard time understanding why a Jew who does not believe in Jesus would write a book on his teachings unless he has a secret agenda. I thought I explained this rather well in my books but I guess not everyone reads my books. Or perhaps I am not as eloquent as I like to think. So I am writing this to try and set the record straight.

Let me start with my views on Jesus of Nazareth, or as he was known 2000 years ago, “Yeshua”. Over the past few years I have gained a great respect for his teachings, but I have not embraced the Christian faith nor have I become a “Messianic Jew.” I clearly state this in all of my presentations in order to avoid any possible confusion. I am, as I have been for over twenty years, a Karaite Jew, which means I believe the Tanakh (“Old Testament”) to be the perfect word of God. As a Karaite Jew, I await the coming of an anointed King (in Hebrew: “Messiah”) who will be a direct descendant of King David. I have no idea what his name will be and therefore I do not rule out the possibility that his name will be “Yeshua”. Many Jews, and Karaites in particular, may vehemently disagree with me on this last point. All I can say is that when the anointed descendant of David reigns as a flesh and blood king over Israel, as promised in the Scriptures, we will all know his name as an accomplished fact.

So why do I have what one of my sisters – a devout Orthodox Jew – refers to as an “unhealthy interest in Jesus”? It started many years ago, when I came out of Rabbinical Judaism and began researching all of the world’s religions. I was particularly interested in ancient Judaism in all of its forms and this naturally included the teaching ministry of Yeshua of Nazareth. My interest in this subject is not as unusual as my sister might think. Over the past century, Jewish scholars have increasingly carried out research to uncover the Hebrew background and context of the New Testament. One of the greatest of these scholars was Professor David Flusser, himself an Orthodox Jew, who taught at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I was trained in the study of ancient Jewish texts at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where I earned my Masters Degree in Biblical Studies and I view my own research on the teachings of Yeshua as part of this scholarly tradition.

To give this research some context, a number of years ago I was privileged to have worked with the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were written by an ancient Jewish movement called the Essenes. While I believe the Dead Sea Scrolls contain great value, at no time did I ever become an Essene. Furthermore, as a textual scholar researching the scrolls it was not my role to convince anyone whether or not to believe in Essene Judaism. My role as a scholar was to attempt to understand what these ancient documents meant in their original linguistic, historical, and cultural context. This is how I see my role in exploring the Hebrew background of the New Testament. It is not my role as a textual scholar to lead anyone into the Christian faith. Nor is it my role to lead anyone out of the Christian faith. These are issues of personal faith and belief that are beyond the scope of my research. My role as a textual scholar is to understand what Yeshua taught in the linguistic, historical, and cultural context in which he preached. For those who believe in Yeshua I would think this should be of great importance. But it should also be important for non-Christians, as Yeshua was indisputably a pivotal figure in world history who profoundly influenced the development of Western civilization.

In addition to my interest in all forms of ancient Judaism, there is another reason I think it is important for me to share the results of this research, especially with Christians. It relates to an experience I had many years ago in Jerusalem. Living in the Holy City, I meet all kinds of interesting people. One such gentleman was an American tourist who described himself as a “Messianic Gentile”. I had heard of “Messianic Jews” before but did not know what a Messianic Gentile was. He explained that he believed Yeshua to be the Messiah and wanted to live as Yeshua lived. He told me that as a Jew, Yeshua refrained from eating pork and went to the synagogue on the Sabbath. Although he had no Jewish ancestry that he knew of, he too wanted to live as Yeshua had lived, refraining from pork and going to a synagogue on the Sabbath. At the time I had never met anyone quite like this and was very intrigued. We ended up spending many long hours discussing our respective beliefs and practices. One day he was telling me about the prayers in his congregation back in America and he proudly announced that in his Messianic synagogue they recited the Amidah. When I heard this I was shocked because I knew something he obviously did not know. The Amidah is the standard prayer of Rabbinical Judaism and I grew up as an Orthodox Jew praying this prayer three times a day. The Amidah is also known as the “Eighteen Benedictions” but today actually contains 19 benedictions. The 19th benediction, which my friend obviously did not know about, is called the Birkat HaMinim which means “the Blessing of the Heretics”. Despite its name, it is actually a curse of the so-called “heretics”. Historical sources, most notably the Talmud, inform us that this 19th benediction was added to the Amidah around the year 90 CE in order to prevent those Jews who accepted Yeshua as the Messiah from participating in synagogue services. At the time, the Rabbis did not have the authority to prevent Yeshua’s Jewish followers from attending the synagogues but they reasoned these people would stop coming if a public curse was proclaimed upon them during every prayer service. When this “Messianic Gentile” told me his congregation recited the Amidah during their services I thought surely he meant the Amidah without the Birkat HaMinim. So I asked him to show me his Messianic prayer book and I quickly flipped to the section containing the Amidah. To my horror I found that it indeed contained the Birkat HaMinim. It had been translated in a very clever way to obscure its meaning, but there it was in black and white in both Hebrew and English. I was heartbroken at the thought of an entire group of devout people, who were searching in their own way for Scriptural truth, proclaiming a public curse upon themselves because they did not understand the historical context of their own faith. They wanted to live as Yeshua lived but ended up reciting a prayer created to curse those who believed in Yeshua. I realized then and there that the Almighty had blessed me with an understanding of ancient languages and ancient Jewish texts and I was morally obligated to share that information with anyone who needed it, even if I disagreed with them on important matters of faith.

As a Jew, it is not all that strange for me to interact with people that I disagree with on matters of faith. This is part of the pluralism inherent in Jewish culture in general. There is an old saying that “if you ask two Jews you get three opinions.” This witticism is based on a fundamental principle in Rabbinical Judaism that there are seventy true meanings to every single word in Scripture. The result of this doctrine is that multiple opinions can be tolerated, even when they are diametrically opposed. This approach has imbued Jews with a relatively pluralistic attitude towards matters of belief, especially when these beliefs do not result in any practical expression of ritual observance. This is in sharp contrast to the Christian tradition of breaking fellowship, and indeed in earlier centuries of burning people at the stake, over the subtlest of doctrinal nuances.

As a Karaite, I do not agree with the Rabbinical principle that there are seventy true meanings to everything in Scripture. I believe there is only one true interpretation. However, with the Temple in ruins and the People of Israel in a state of Exile we do not necessarily know what that one true interpretation is. This necessitates a pragmatic pluralism which in some ways is even more tolerant than Rabbinical Judaism. Karaite Jews believe we must do our best to discover the truth but also humble ourselves before God and admit that we can never know for sure “until a priest with Urim and Thummim should appear” (Ezra 2:63). This humility means not judging our brothers for disagreeing on matters of faith, and even on matters of ritual observance, as long as they do their best to discover the Scriptural truth. I am not saying every Jew, nor even every Karaite, always lives up to these ideals but they are nevertheless values deeply rooted in Jewish culture.

Considering that there are, according to the World Christian Encyclopedia, over 33,000 denominations, I would have thought Christians to be even more tolerant to differences of faith and practice than Jews. To be sure, this may be true for many Christians. However, I did not realize how alien this pluralistic approach was to some Christians until last year when I was on a speaking tour in the USA. After one of my presentations a man walked up to me and thanked me for the information I had shared. He told me that he had been told by his congregation leader not come to my presentation. The congregation leader had warned him that as someone who does not believe in Jesus I was not “anointed” to speak the truth. The man objected to his congregation leader: “If God could use Balaam’s ass to speak the truth then surely he could use Nehemia”.

I suppose most Jews would be deeply offended at being compared to a female donkey but I was more disturbed by the arrogance of this man’s congregation leader. I was raised with the tradition of the Rabbis who taught: “Who is a wise man? He who learns from every man.” (Ethics of the Fathers 4:1). Karaite Jews wholeheartedly embrace this principle, often quoting the words of the 12th century Rabbinical sage Maimonides (Rambam): “Accept the truth from whoever speaks it.” When Maimonides said this he was referring to the mathematical and astronomical knowledge he learned from ancient Greeks sources. He did not dismiss or ignore this knowledge even though it came from pagans because the knowledge was true in its own right. It is important to note that this was not simply “secular” knowledge to Maimonides; it had practical application to the observance of certain biblical commandments.

The original disciples of Yeshua and their heirs understood that truth had value regardless of its source. Evidence of this can be found in the Book of Acts, which quotes the words Gamaliel, a leading Pharisee of the 1st century. Although Gamaliel was not a believer in Yeshua, the Book of Acts considered what he said to be valuable and true in its own right. The notion that a Christian today would categorically deem what Jews have to say as worthless and untrustworthy because of our different beliefs is the zenith of arrogance. I am reminded of the words of Paul of Tarsus (admittedly a Jew) who warned the Gentiles:

“But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember that it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you.”

Romans 11:17-18

I suspect Paul was talking about something that was already happening in his own time: Gentiles were embracing the faith in Yeshua and boasting that they were better than the Jews who did not share their new belief, even though these Jews were the “root” of their faith.

As if this arrogance were not bad enough, shortly after being compared to Balaam’s ass, the specter of anti-Semitism reared its ugly head. I had been invited to speak at a Christian conference when the organizer received a dire warning from a local Christian pastor. The pastor proclaimed that as a “non-believing Jew” I was operating under the control of the “spirit of Antichrist”. When I heard this I thought the pastor meant it metaphorically, but it turns out he meant there was a literal demonic spirit that was influencing my every move. He explained that it was nothing against me personally but all “non-believing Jews” are under the spirit of Antichrist. Boasting against the root is one thing, but this amounts to cursing the root.

Some of my fellow Jews reading this are probably thinking: “So why bother, Nehemia! Let the goyim languish in their ignorance.” My answer is that there are countless Christians out there who want to understand their faith in its original historical, cultural, and linguistic context. Jesus of Nazareth was a Jew who spoke Hebrew and lived as a Jew among Jews. It just so happens that God has blessed me with a knowledge of ancient Judaism and ancient Hebrew and I feel compelled to share this information with those with those who need it, even if I disagree with them on important matters of faith. The Torah teaches us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves which means to treat others as we ourselves want to be treated. I know that if I lacked vital knowledge I would want someone who had this knowledge to share it with me. I must, therefore, share the knowledge I have with those who need it. I am not saying I know everything or that I have all the answers. But if God could use a donkey to speak to Balaam perhaps he is using me for some purpose that is beyond my comprehension. I pray that like Balaam’s ass this is a burden I can continue to bear…by judah gabriel himango

The Hebrew Yahushua vs The Greek Jesus

Lamadyahu’s channel

Breaking down the name of the Messiah. Debariym (Deuteronomy) 28:9 – The Path to YAHUAH

The purpose of this website is to promote the truth of Yahuah.

We are a Messianic congregation, meaning we believe in the Mashiyach (Messiah) and his name is Yahusha that has come and will return again.

Our foundation is in the Torah, the writings, and the Prophets.

We believe that the Brith Chadashah (New Testament) is a witness that the Tanak (Old Testament) is true.

Our objective is to be one with our brothers and sisters who are walking in the same belief, or want to learn about this walk.Every teaching that is put out through this website is to be used as a learning or teaching tool, to help those that are looking for Truth.

We do not profess that we have all the answers, for ourselves are constantly growing. We are seeking unity with other congregations, and to help gather ourselves back together just like the days of Nehemyah, and Ezra. We eagerly wait for the Mashiyach’s return.

Debariym (Deuteronomy) 28:9 Yahuah will establish you as a set-apart people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you guard the commands of Yahuah your Aluah and walk in His ways.

An astonishing realization has recently gripped the Christian world: “Jesus Christ” was not a blond-haired, blue-eyed Gentile. Yeshua of Nazareth was raised in an observant Jewish family in a culture where the Torah (five books of Moses) was the National Constitution. Yeshua’s teachings, which supposedly form the basis for Western Christianity, are now filtered through 2000 years of traditions born in ignorance of the land, language, and culture of the Bible.

Deception In The Church – A Call for Discernment – Justin Peters

A Call for Discernment – False Prophets Exposed

Justin Peters Ministries – “A Call for Discernment” is a Biblical Critique of the Word of Faith Movement (more commonly known as the Health and Wealth or Prosperity Gospel).

A Call for Discernment Session 1 – Dangerous Doctrine

Visit Justin Peter Website

This video is a recording of Justin Peter’s presentation at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. It is not, of course, A Call for Discernment in its entirety, but rather a brief overview of it in which Rev. Peters presents a few highlights from each of the three primary sessions.

In addition to expository preaching, another aspect of Justin’s ministry is the three session seminar which he has developed entitled A Call for Discernment. This seminar is a fair, comprehensive, biblical critique of the modern Word of Faith movement. Word of Faith theology (WoF) dominates Christian satellite and cable television and is making alarming inroads into more theologically conservative, evangical churches. This seminar contains dozens of audio and video clips (primarily the latter) of various WoF leaders such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Jessie Duplantis, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, T. D. Jakes, Creflo Dollar, Eddie Long, – Benny Hinn, Frederick K.C. Price, Jan and Paul Crouch, K.A. Paul, Paula And Randy White, Mike Murdock, Rod Parsley, John Hagee, etc. etc. incorporated into a PowerPoint format. This format allows people to see and hear for themselves what these individuals are actually teaching. Everything then is, in turn, balanced with Scripture.

Each session is approximately 70 to 75 minutes in length. A Call for Discernment can be structured and scheduled according to the desires of the pastor or conference organizer.

Life After Death?

The namesake of the oldest book in the Bible, Job, asked the question, “If a man die, shall he live again?” (Job 14:14) The question of life after death has occupied the thoughts of man for all of his history. Just the fact that you are now reading this text bears witness to the fact that this most universal of all questions has occupied your thoughts as well.

Dear friend, allow me to share with you what God’s Word has to teach us about this subject. The Bible (both Old and New Testaments) gives us abundant evidence that man was created by God to live eternally. The sense of eternity is universal; a general belief in man’s mortal present but immortal future can be found in all cultures throughout the world. The question is, then, ‘What happens when I die?’

Session 2 – Mangled Manifestations

Most people today believe that if, generally speaking, they are a good person then they will go to Heaven. In other words, if their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds, or, as long as they sincerely try to live a good life, then God will accept them.

There is actually some truth to this. If a person dies and truly is a good and righteous person, then he is assured of an eternity in Heaven. There’s just one problem, though: the Bible makes it quite clear that there are no inherently good people. Romans 3:10 states, “There is none righteous, no not one.”

I know, I know. It sounds very brash and harsh to claim that there are no good people to be found anywhere. After all, one may wonder, ‘What about people like Mother Theresa, Gandhi, or Billy Graham? Weren’t (or in the latter case, aren’t) they good people? Well, by human standards I would be the first to answer that question with a resounding Yes. Though I would disagree with some of them on some theological issues, I would say that all of them were, or are, humble people who consistently placed others above themselves. History will look kindly on all of these individuals as being selfless people with high moral standards and personal integrity.

A Call for Discernment Session 3 – The Hurt of Healing

The problem, though, lies in the fact that God does not judge us by man’s standards, He judges us by His. What exactly are those standards? They are, very simply, the 10 Commandments. If a man could live by all of the 10 Commandments perfectly throughout his life, then he would indeed be a good person by God’s standards and be assured of eternity in Heaven. I invite you to look with me at the 10 Commandments and as we progress, evaluate yourself to see if you measure up to God’s standards.

The Ten Commandments

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me

This commandment is not only an injunction not to worship other deities before the true God, Yahweh. It also means that nothing in our lives should ever take priority over God and His will. Has there ever been a time in your life in which something or someone was, even for a moment, more important to you than God? Has God always been your top priority and greatest love?

2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images

If you are reading this, you probably do not have a statue of Buddha or of some other pagan god sitting somewhere in your home that you worship. In the clear, right? Well, not so fast. If you believe things about God that are not supported by Scripture (for example, that God will accept you as long as you ‘try to be a good person’) then you are not worshipping the true God. You have made a god out of your own image. This is called idolatry and is a serious sin.

3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain

God takes His good name very seriously. Have you ever misused God’s name in a vulgar or even flippant way? This is called blasphemy.

4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy

Though we should love and serve God every day, He has set aside one day a week for special worship of and service to Him. Has there ever been a Sabbath day in which you slept in or maybe went fishing or to a ballgame instead of going to church?

5. Honor thy father and thy mother

Have you ever disobeyed or dishonored your parents? Have you ever lied to them (and thereby broke two commandments at once)?

6. Thou shalt not murder

Most of us have not actually killed another person. Off the hook, right? Well, the Bible teaches that “Whoever hateth his brother is a murderer” (1 John 3:15). Have you ever hated another individual?

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery

Like many of the Ten Commandments, this one encapsulates more than one might expect just at face value. Jesus said, “whoever looketh upon a woman with lust has committed adultery with her in his heart.” Have you ever looked at a woman with lust? If you are a lady, have you ever done this toward a man?

8. Thou shalt not steal

Have you ever stolen anything regardless of its value?

9. Thou shalt not lie

Who among us has not lied?

10. Thou shalt not covet

This means that we should not desire any possession of another individual whether it be his home, vehicle, boat, wife, social status, prestige – anything.

So, how did you do? If you are anything like me, you probably did not do too well. If you are really honest with yourself, I think that you will find that at one time or another you have broken most, if not all, of God’s commandments. Even if we break only one, it is the same as breaking them all (James 2:10). By God’s standards, then, we are all liars, thieves, idolaters, basphemers, and adulterers. We have all at one time or another dishonored our parents, disregarded the Sabbath, coveted another’s possessions, and not put God first in our lives. So you see, by God’s standards, we are not as good as we might have imagined. The fact of the matter is, we are all sinners (Romans 3:23).

The Consequences of Sin

Almost all people to whom I have shared the Gospel will in fact admit they are sinners upon hearing and understanding the 10 Commandments, but many fail to recognize the gravity of their sin. Some believe that God will just overlook their sin. Others have this notion that God will grade on a curve and reward them because they are not as bad as a, say, Hitler or Stalin or Pol Pot. Friend, if this is your idea of God, let me say that I love you enough to tell you you are wrong – dead wrong. All sin, no matter how insignificant it may seem to us, is an affront to a holy God. The Bible teaches that “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). This death is a spiritual death and results in eternal separation from God. Please understand, dear one, that this eternal death is not just missing out on Heaven, it is eternal conscious suffering in a very real place the Bible calls Hell. Sin has eternal consequences because it is committed against an eternal God. Once a person enters Hell, there are no second chances, his fate is eternally and tragically sealed.

The Good News

The word “Gospel” means “good news.” The Good News of the Gospel is that God does not want you to go to Hell and loves you enough to have provided a Way of escape. His name is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the living God. Jesus came to earth as fully God and fully man and was the only One to have ever lived a perfect, sinless life. Jesus then willingly laid down His life for us by dying on a Roman cross. He was crucified to pay the penalty of your sins and mine. He became the offering for our sins and therefore satisfied the demands of God’s justice.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us – Romans 5:8

Then, on the morning of the third day, something amazing happened. God raised Jesus from the dead. All four gospels bear witness to this miraculous event. Jesus was raised and showed Himself very much alive to the disciples and apostles and to more than five hundred at once (1 Corinthians 15:3-7). The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ is the single most well-attested event in all of ancient history and testifies to the deity of Jesus. The resurrection sets Jesus apart from all other “religious leaders” who came before Him or since.

By being raise from the dead, Jesus has gained victory over sin, death and Hell. He is alive today and stands ready to forgive anyone of his sins who will confess with his mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in his heart that God has raised Him from the dead (Romans 10:9). Jesus and Jesus alone can forgive one of his sins and secure for him escape from Hell and an eternity in Heaven. That is the Good News.

Your Response

According to the Word of God, dear friend, what you decide about Jesus will determine where you spend eternity. No one can earn his salvation by good works (Ephesians 2:8-9). If we could somehow earn God’s favor, then the cross is empty and meaningless. We are forgiven of our sins when we first realize that we are sinners and in need of saving. Then, for the one who believes the Good News and is willing to repent of his sins and trust Jesus as Savior and Lord, salvation is freely given.

Are you ready to forsake your sins and surrender completely to the Lordship of Jesus Christ? Please do not come to Jesus seeking happiness, peace, or some purpose-filled life. Come to Jesus seeking forgiveness of your sins. Come to Him because He alone can deliver you from the judgment that must come to anyone who dies without Him.

Friend, if you come to Christ, please do not expect that your life will all of the sudden be wonderful and without problems. Jesus did not promise anyone this. To the contrary, Jesus promised those who follow Him that they would face trials, persecutions, and be hated by some – maybe even by one’s own family. No, Jesus does not promise an easy life, financial prosperity, or physical healing (contrary to what some preachers would have you believe). He does promise you, though, the greatest gift of all: forgiveness of sins and eternal life. When the inevitable trials of life do come, He will grant His sufficient grace and strength made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). He will grant His peace that surpasses all human understanding (Philippians 4:6-7). This peace and strength comes from knowing that we are forgiven of our sins and that our eternity is secure.

If you have read all of this and are being convicted by the Holy Spirit of God that you need to surrender to Jesus Christ and trust Him as Savior and Lord, I would invite you to do that now. Go to Jesus and ask Him to forgive you and save you. He stands ready to receive you unto Himself and wash your scarlet sins white as snow. If you have made this decision, please write and share with me your new life in Christ. It will be my joy to send you some material to help you in your new walk with Him and to pray for you as my new brother or sister in Christ.

I would encourage you to begin reading your Bible and praying daily. Seek and join a Bible-believing and teaching church. As you grow in your relationship with Jesus, share the Good News with others. May God richly bless and use you for His glory.

I just cannot thank you enough for being faithful to what God has called you to do.  I pray for your travels and for the others that attend your seminar.  You have opened many eyes, and confirmed my own discernment toward these WoF preachers.  I know we are still few, but yet at the same time we are many. God Bless you and your ministry and once again mine and Jennifer’s prayers are with you.  We will be showing your DVD to Jennifer’s dad.  Please keep us in prayer as we minister to those who are tied up in these false teachings.

In God’s Love

Brother Justin,

I came across your name on the Iron Sharpens Iron radio show which  directed me to your web site.   I took the 35 minutes and watched  your video on the Word of Faith movement, I must tell you that God   has moved you in a direction that is needed more now than I think  any time in the past with regards to this damning heresy.

My father has been in this movement for over 20 years, and is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa.   He moved my mother from  southern California where I grew up to Tulsa to attend the school.  I have had numerous conversations with him about some of the teachings and I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.  I grew up in an SBC church in San Diego (1st baptist church of Pacific Beach), a church that we all had attended until I left for the Navy back in the late 80s, so to hear what I was hearing was quite a shock.  I have tried numerous times to express to him the heresy that he is part of but as you know, he would not allow any negative talk (and the list goes on and on).  I have him listed on my personal prayer list along with everyone else who has been sucked into this lie.

My grandmother died believing this lie, my only hope is that, before her death she came to know the truth.  I wanted to let you know that I will be praying for you and your ministry, the WOFM needs to be exposed for what it is.

My blessings to you brother as you continue to fight in the spiritual trenches

In His Name,

Hello brother Justin,

I pray this finds you doing well. My husband and I LOVE you and your ministry, and I feel led to share something with you. There are some apologetics ministries who do and teach the same thing that you do regarding the word of faith movement. These ministries are largely ignored (I believe) because they sound judgmental to the hearer regardless that they are right biblically.

God has graced you with a meek spirit and when you teach the truth, it is obviously from a place of love. You and your message will penetrate the walls of the word of faith churches and their followers because of the way you deliver the message (in addition to it being the truth.) What you say comes from a place of love in Christ and if people throw criticism your way, they have obviously ignored your heart motive. I praise God for your ministry. I watch the videos at least once a week so I can get everything in my spirit and go forth proclaiming the truth in love. As someone who came out of the word of faith movement a year ago, I continually need to read and hear the truth. Keep doing what you are doing!

Be Blessed,

Skye Steele


Dear Justin,

You may have very little time to read my email as I am sure your ministry keeps you more than busy! However, I hope that you can find a minute to read these lines as I just want to send you feedback as well as warm wishes from this part of the world.

Your DVD seminar “A call for Discernment” has impacted my life greatly. We have just spent the last few weeks in our little bible study going through it – it was uplifting! (So that you know our leader has been to your seminars J)Uplifting, perhaps an odd word to use in this case but I say uplifting as it shocked me at first but then left me with a great sense of encouragement. Why? Because there are Christians and Christian leaders out there that are fighting to spread the truth and only the truth of what Gods word stands for…..something we need so desperately in this day and age! And I was yet again privileged enough to receive such sound teaching. Uplifting also because I have often felt like a “spiritual failure”, wondering why others seem to have such a high flying Christian life, filled with blessings and gifts  while I battle my little wars everyday and doubt if I am pleasing God enough…..WRONG. I am in a church and bible study that teaches sound biblical truth – I stumble along an unwavering path, narrow and often uncomfortably rocky, but yet so scenic and beautiful to travel………and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else J Jesus never said it was going to be easy……

I felt immensely privileged to get to “know you” and your work through this DVD and to be fortunate to be touched by your teaching. Although I have known the Lord since I was 8 years old and believed that I could discern relatively well, this DVD gave me a wakeup call regardless and it pushed me to know in my very heart of hearts that we are NEVER to compromise on his word in even the slightest way!

I will be ordering a set for myself as I have a few friends that could be greatly blessed by your teaching and warnings. I hope the ordering via the website works half way across the world J So I close just to say a huge thank you – may our Lord God bless you in a very special way for what you are doing. May he keep you safe and well until we perhaps meet one day…..latest in heaven J

With best wishes and warm regards in Christ our only Lord and Savior,

Hello, Justin,

You were at First Baptist Anderson, AL this past week, and I wanted to let you know how very much my husband and I enjoyed your services. We were able to make all of them except the last night (which we were sad to miss!). It was indeed a breath of fresh air to hear you, and you seem to have a very sweet and humble spirit, and it is obvious that the Holy Spirit is leading you. Thank you for being willing to come to our church.

I just wanted to make a reference to something you said one night that really meant a lot to me. I was saved at age 12. I had no doubt that I was a sinner, that I needed a Savior and that that was Jesus. I asked Jesus to save me, and to take me as one of his own. There was no doubt in my mind that I was a Christian from that time on. Years later, I can remember it always sort of bothered me that I never had said a line for line “sinner’s prayer”. It’s so ingrained into the Baptist mind that you “have” to say the sinner’s prayer, that I even wondered if I had “messed up” by not saying it. I never could come up with a line for line prayer of sorts in the Bible, but it still bothered me. I mean, we have literature printed with the sinner’s prayer on it for crying out loud. Anyway, it blessed my heart and even made me smile when you stated one night that there is no sinner’s prayer in the Bible, and that it’s not “required” articulation for salvation. I knew that in my heart, but it was so good to hear it coming from a “preacher”. Thanks, Justin.

God bless you and your ministry.

Sincerely,

Misty Robertson


Dear Mr. Peters,

I watched the show Wretched for the first time this evening and I received such a blessing watching you.  I would often watch these preachers on tv and I knew in my spirit that there was something wrong.  All they seemed to say was send me your money and God will heal you or provide you with a financial windfall.  Ya know, my grandmother had a saying (actually she had a lot of them) If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

I have personally been told that I was not saved because I had not spoken in tongues.  I was a brand new Christian and, not knowing any better, it crushed me.  Thank God He brought someone into my life to show me the truth.

The Devil’s been after me for many years.  I was told I must have had unconfessed sin because I got breast cancer.  I know you understand when I say that God Blessed me with breast cancer.  He used me in such an amazing and powerful way during that time, let me say this, I don’t think I’ve ever felt closer to God than I did during that time.

I don’t know why God had me watch this evening, nor do I know why He had me share this with you.  I just know I couldn’t go to bed without writing to you.

May God continue to bless you and your ministry.  Thank you for all you do.

Diane Walker


Hi Justin,

I just wanted to write and say again how very much Roger and I appreciated your seminar.  We believe your ministry and the message you have is vitally important.  We look forward to becoming regular supporters, not only financially, but with our prayers and encouragement – and in any other ways you might need.

I can’t explain it, other than the Holy Spirit’s work, but we were very moved by…well…everything about you.  God has gifted you with a gentle spirit, yet you speak with such biblical authority, and you you cause people to hear what you’re saying.  As I said, it’s rather difficult to explain.

It was quite an honor and blessing to meet you and have the chance to talk with you.  Perhaps the next time you’re in the DFW area, we can have that lunch (or dinner) together.  Our home is always open.

We hope you benefit from the Dave Busby videos – that he will minister to you, even as you pour yourself out in ministering to others.

May God continue to bless you, and may He protect you as you travel to OK and then on to CA.  You are in our prayers.  Keep in touch!

In Him,

Gayla & Roger


Blessing Pastor Justin

I hope all is well you and that you’re having a blessed Christmas and will continue with a God filled New Year. My motive for this email is inform you that we have received your Thesis and DVD set after placing our order, thank you (My wife actually ordered it). My wife and I have completely consumed the entire teaching material upon its arrival. It has helped me personally a great deal Pastor, specifically to articulate better what I have been feeling for sometime about the current church my family and I attend for the past 2 years. I’ve had trouble putting my thumb on it until my wife and I had a heart to heart discussion this past summer about things not just lining up with the scriptures, Pastor I’m no bible guru (though my wife is) but I noted that some fundamental biblical thresholds where exceeded by way of teaching in my church which raised a alarm in me. My wife was already uneasy, thus after speaking we agreed its time to be extremely diligent on what is said from the front of the church. Also to take lots of notes and examine everything by the light of the scriptures.

My wife and I quickly found ourselves unpopular after challenging (in Gods Love and in private) a bible teacher on the subject of Healing. The teaching was “Its Gods will for you to be in perfect health” thus we gave an inventory of biblical example on how this is not the case.

Also after my wife’s teaching on basic bible doctrines and apologetics, she taught that the Holy Spirit and its gifts are for everyone and not just a select few.  This basically goes against the grain of those who teach special revelation for a select few.

So thanks again for the material and I would ask that we stay pray fully in contact with each other, I’m very interested in your Ministry so add me to you mailing list. Pray for my family and me as we are obviously seeking another church to call home.

Hi Justin,

It’s so good to hear from you, those who were at your conference still talk about it and others are using your videos to reach out to their friends and family members. In fact, I know of one family’s son who is getting together with his in-laws, who are steeped in Word of Faith teaching – in fact the mother has terminal cancer – to show your video to them, their prayer is that this will free them from the false hope that God is obligated to heal her and to get her to know that whatever happens she is still in God’s hands and He is right there with her.

Hello Mr. Peters,

I had the great pleasure and the great blessing of being among the attendees at your “A Call For Discernment Seminar” at Twin City Fellowship this last weekend. Oh I praise God our Father and our Lord Jesus for the love burden that He has so graciously given you- a passion-that “His name will be great among the nations” this in your defense of His Holy Name, in the defense of the faith, in presenting the pure Gospel of God, for His glory, for the good of all men and for your joy.

The facts in your presentation, exposing this “movement”  for what the Lord calls it from His Word, heresy, “another” gospel, doctrine of demons, false prophets, etc. I thank the Lord, I thank you!! It was biblical, fair, honest and true. I see also that if it not be for His Spirit, the mind of Christ, His word, His Beloved, one could easily become entangled in their message,  the things of the world, the passing pleasures, it’s appeal to the carnal flesh is very attractive. Thank you for equpping us from Scripture, to give a defense, as well as exposing these deceptions.

The love, gentleness, humility and respect that you display in exposing the great heresies of  these teachings that would have a price tag put on the wonderfully magnificent person and work of  the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for temporal and mere earthly gain, this opposed to the Great Treasure which is Christ Himself.

Personally-much of my professing Christian family is deceived into this “another” Gospel.

If you can, please Sir pray that it please the Lord, to have mercy and compassion on my family and all blinded by satan, bound under the deception, on these “preachers” who would trample under foot the blood of Jesus- to raise them from the dead -alive, grant them repentance, faith, forgiveness in the shed blood of His Son Jesus Christ for His glory and praise, for the salvation of their dear precious souls. As well, keep me faithful to our Lord’s word, who loved me and gave Himself for me…

Sir may the Lord as we continue to press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us…continue to be kept humble, kept faithful to His word, continue to draw near to the throne of grace, growing in faith, truth and love…that we all continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ, being transformed in our hearts and minds, to be conformed to the image of the likeness of our dear Savior-Jesus Christ to whom belongs all things.

Thank You!!

Soli Deo Gloria,
Marquis


Pastor Justin,

I spoke to you briefly after the end of the seminar today at Twin City Fellowship but I also want you to have in print what I relayed to you about your presentation.

I went to the seminar fully expecting another expose’ on the ministers of the Word of Faith movement.  It was that and so very much more.  You taught us where all the scriptures are that all of the WOF ministers are violating or misusing.  You kept our full attention with your loving and gentle method of presentation.  I could personally see that you are a man that truly loves our Lord Jesus Christ and are willing to do your part in defending him.  You blessed me with your presence and your presentation.  I can’t wait for my wife to see your DVD and hopefully to pass it on to her daughter who is deeply associated with a WOF church in El Paso, Texas (Abundant Faith Living Center, pastored by Charles Nieman).  This will probably create a chasm between me and her daughter but my desire for the truth about Jesus Christ and her salvation are far more important the the division that will be caused. (or maybe there won’t be a division!)

Another point that impacted me from your presentation was your comment about your crutches and how you won’t need them or even think about them when you get to Heaven.  There will be much more important things to be considering, Jesus Christ and worshipping and praising him.  I always hear people questioning whether there will be dogs in heaven, will I see my loved one there, etc.  I have no concern about that.  I can only hope to be focusing on Him as everybody that is there should be as well.

Again, I thank you for bringing us your very critical seminar.  May God continue to bless you and keep you working your ministry.

Respectfully,

Samuel P. Madrid


Hello Justin,

I have just watched some of your seminar on the Word of Faith movement. It was an extract, so I’m not sure what it was called. (We don’t get much good teaching here in the UK). I have to say, your work is an inspiration to me and my family. We don’t go to church because they kicked us out (for teaching the bible), so we use American preachers as out priest at home.

You are one of the many brilliant testimonies of GOD’s work. I, myself was born with a cleft lip and pallet and have been in hospital more times than I have had hot dinners! Because of this I too was saved at an early age, 1994 at 5 years old. Three years ago I had a cardiac arrest and nearly died in my tenth and final operation. It made me realize that we can never always know what GOD is doing in our lives, and can take life at any moment he chooses. It is so lovely to see someone with such difficulties, marching out into the world proclaiming the Gospel. Our little ‘underground church’ is so thankful for your teachings. You are truly a man blessed by GOD, you have so much at wisdom at such a young age!

Can I ask, are you planning to come to the UK? This country is in such need of the Gospel. The only preaching’s on TV are that of Benny Hinn and the Copelands (ergh!). However, once a month, Bob Mitchell talks (not sure if you have heard of him, he is an end times person, and does it in his spare time). The only way us Brits can feast on Bible food, is by streaming and listening wherever possible on the internet.

Thank you for all your work, brother in CHRIST. God bless x

Kelly Smith


Dear Justin Peters,

I would first like to thank Jesus Christ for your life and ministry. In this age of deception your DVD’s and seminar’s in the UK and America have been a blessing not only to my self but thousands of other believers. I pray and hope that you continue with your ministry and would like to personally thank you for what Jesus has achieved through you. I was caught up in the wealth/heath gospel movement and only through God’s grace did I come to realise that it was false and that I was heading for Hell. It is bible teachers like you who made me realise the error of the movement and turn towards the true gospel.

Mr Peters I firmly believe that your ministry is needed most in Africa and other 3rd world countries where the world faith movement is destroying the body of Christ. I come from Kenya and still have links there although I currently reside in the UK and have personally witnessed how multiples of people have fallen prey to the blatant lies of this movement.

Its not going to be easy and you will most certainly face alot of opposition but if there is anyway I can help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

May the Lord our God Bless you and Keep you

Hello Mr Peters

My name is Janine and I am christian living in East London, South Africa. My family and I recently watched your seminar on a call for discernment and were instantly touched. You see, we were born as Catholics (some of my family members are still Catholics) and also spent some time visiting and being involved in word of faith churches. About 2 years ago a dear relative of mine lost his life to cancer. It was unexpected as he was healthy and only 47years of age. However, about 3 years before he died he fell in love with Jesus and all he wanted was his family to embrace the truth. He read the word day and night and tried to share the word at every opportunity he had. But our ears wouldnt listen, our hearts wouldnt accept. During the time since his passing some of us have had the opportunity to finally learn the truth for the first time. You might find that strange as I initially mentioned we were born into Christianity. After my uncles passing we soon realised that we have to start unlearning many of doctrines previously accepted. We went from the Catholic Church that didnt really encourage us to read God’s word to charismatic churches with their own set of teachings. The younger folk in the family like myself found the services far too monotonous and boring. The charismatic churches offered “excitement” but also alot of false teachings.

I am a believer in God’s perfect timing and for me watching the seminar both confirmed and re-inforced the truth even more. I currently dont attend church regularly as I am still finding a church where I fit in. I have labelled myself as a Christian for many years but only recently have I discovered the power of God’s word – it’s simple you have to read the bible everyday to strengthen your relationship with God. Also, how else does one get to know God?

East London is small city along the east coast of South Africa. TBN is also broadcasted here. Benny Hinn and co have visited EL. I personally havent been to any crusades although some of family members have been. There was a huge revival here last year hosted by the River Ministeries based in EL. Many word of faith preachers based overseas were involved in this revival. I think people in South Africa will most definitely benefit from your seminars. I find it shocking and scary that there are several false preachers with thousands of followers.

I pray that the Lord may bless you and your ministry as you continue to share the REAL TRUTH with God’s people. Those who know the truth need to share it. I am beginning to wander how many in this world do know the truth and have embraced it, especially in view of what is happening at the moment.

God bless you and your ministry.

Kind Regards

Reformed Baptist Indonesia – February 2 at 8:48pm

Hallo Mr.Justin Peters,on behalf on my congregation I would like to thank you for your generousity and kindness for giving us dvd teaching materials.Im sure if it based on the biblical teaching it must be a help for us very much,because we are now in Indonesia are facing persecution and challenge from other faith (moslem )and our goverment.From the internal christian circle,Indonesia Christian face a rise of prosperity theology,word of faith movement, charismatic movement,etc. that confused our plain and simple christian people. We hope your teaching from the dvd source would would give our people a clarity of mind and a firm fondation about biblical and baptistic doctrine to unmasking the lie of the false teaching..We have also pray for you and your ministry..God bless you ! Thank you!


Hi Justin or whoever is reading this.

I’m writing to share my joy in the Lord. I watched the preview “A call for discernment” on youtube in December and decided to make Bulgarian subtitles for it. Today the first 10-minute part has become my most watched video on Bulgaria’s biggest Christian video sharing website – http://www.bibliata.tv. The website is generally dominated by prosperity and word of faith preachers.

The videos are being discussed on Christian message boards; people are emailing links back and forth and giving away DVDs with them. For a small country like mine, where almost every church teaches prosperity, it’s a breakthrough.

If there is a DVD with the full seminar, I’d like to make more videos with subs and share them with people for free.

Blessings,

Lora


Hello Justin, I was hoping I would find you on here, I just wanted to say thank you so much for the work you do. I watched a programme of yours a few days ago and was greatly blessed. Your strength and faith greatly encouraged me in my own journey with the Lord. So thank you for following the Lords calling on your life you truely are making a difference to those of us who have not received healing and are left thinking it is our lack of faith, or relationship with our Lord and Saviour.

May God Bless you and keep you

False teachers are proud, they are concerned for their own popularity.

1. False teachers are proud.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own fame.  They are concerned for their own notoriety.  They are concerned for their own prestige.  They’re concerned to see themselves and hear themselves in the public eye.  They want large crowds, as it were, to bow down in great homage to them.  They’re characterized by pride and they will do anything to gain the ground they need to gain for the welfare of their own personal ego, including any amount of compromise necessary.

2. Secondly, false teachers are characterized by selfishness.  They tend to be self-centered.  They are concerned for their own comfort.  They are concerned for their own popularity.  They are concerned for their own prosperity.  In the end, it’s all about money, fame, and prestige and notoriety equals an increased bank account.  They are in it for the money and the personal material benefits that they can gain as they endeavor to feed their selfish desires.

3. Thirdly, They are characterized by deception.  They usually can weave a very sophisticated web of deception in their teaching because they tend to be articulate, if they’re going to be successful, and they endeavor to engage other people to aid them in their deceitful enterprise which gives it the, sort of, façade of credibility.

4. They’re not only proud and selfish and deceptive, but [fourthly] they’re irreverent.  If there’s anything that sort of dominates in my thinking about false teachers, it is their irreverence.  They have absolutely no regard for God.  The fact that they would go against God, that they would elevate themselves the way they do, that they would pervert the truth indicates their utter irreverence.  They have little, if any, regard for God, His Word, His truth, His glory, His honor…

5. Finally, they are spiritually destructive.  They seek to use people; they seek to abuse people.  They seek to lead people into error, which destroys them—into sin, which pollutes them.

So, as you look at false teachers with regard to the world, they are proud and they seek fame and popularity.  With regard to themselves, they are self-centered, selfish, self-aggrandizing, self-gratifying.  With regard to the nature of their ministry, they are dishonest and deceptive and lack integrity.  With regard to God, they are utterly irreverent; in fact, they are blasphemous.  And, with regard to the people that they influence, they are spiritually destructive. So, their relationship to the world, their relationship to the ministry, their relationship to themselves, their relationship to God, their relationship to their people all reflects the deviation of their hearts.  John F. MacArthur Jr., Concerns of a True Pastor: Humility and Selflessness, 1998

Today’s preachers along with some who have passed on whose ministry or teachings continue, who are either teaching a false doctrine or are using the Doctrine of our Lord Jesus Christ for the benefit of their own selfishness and gain. Some of these preachers lay claim that Jesus is the only way to Heaven (and they would be right), but at the same time, they preach that personal gain is the main message.  There are many different activities out there by some of these people and we would suggest that you study our Articles Page to discover some of what is going on in today’s Churches. – FWM

DNA – In My Flesh I See God – Aleph-Bet – Body Codes

In my flesh I shall see God– Job 19:26

– C. H. Spurgeon

Mark the subject of Job’s devout anticipation– ‘I shall see God.’ He does not say, ‘I shall see the saints’, though doubtless that will be untold joy—but, ‘I shall see God.’ It is not—‘I shall see the pearly gates, I shall behold the walls of jasper, I shall gaze upon the crowns of gold,’ but ‘I shall see God.’ This is the sum and substance of heaven; this is the joyful hope of all believers.

It is their delight to see him now in the ordinances by faith. They love to behold him in communion and in prayer; but there in heaven they shall have an open and unclouded vision, and thus seeing ‘him as he is,’ shall be made completely like him. Likeness to God—what can we wish for more? And a sight of God—what can we desire better? Some read the passage, ‘Yet, I shall see God in my flesh,’ and find here an allusion to Christ, as the ‘Word made flesh,’ and that glorious beholding of him which shall be the splendour of the latter days. Whether so or not, it is certain that Christ shall be the object of our eternal vision; nor shall we ever want any joy beyond that of seeing him.

Think not that this will be a narrow sphere for the mind to dwell in. It is but one source of delight, but that source is infinite. All his attributes shall be subjects for contemplation, and as he is infinite under each aspect, there is no fear of exhaustion. His works, his gifts, his love to us, and his glory in all his purposes, and in all his actions, these shall make a theme which will be ever new. The patriarch looked forward to this sight of God as a personal enjoyment. ‘Whom mine eye shall behold, and not another.’ Take realising views of heaven’s bliss; think what it will be to you. ‘Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty.’

All earthly brightness fades

All earthly brightness fades and darkens as we gaze upon it, but here is a brightness which can never dim, a glory which can never fade—‘I shall see God’.

– C. H. Spurgeon

The body corresponds to the Kingdom of Heaven

The Body Codes with Chuck Thurston or (Dr. Charles Thurston, MD), a teaching on the human body and how the organs of our bodies correspond to the Kingdom of Heaven. Dr Thurston delivers a powerful message. You will be amazed as a perfect picture of the throne room of God is revealed through the intricate design of the human chest and the human heart. Dr. Thurston was a guest on “Creation in the 21st Century” with David Rives. As a part of the program he gave a presentation on this same subject

Dr. Thurston’s goal is to provide believers with scientific evidence that re-establishes the Bible as completely true and authentic. He also focus on the many infallible proofs that may persuade honest seekers of truth that the Bible is what they have been looking for, and is a scientific reality in ways they could never have imagined.

In his brilliantly composed book is a well-balanced meal of spiritual vitamins and minerals, bringing nourishment and new life to your thirsty and hungry soul. It was inspired by his deep love and holy respect for the Word of God. The mini lesson below should help you understand one of many reasons why Dr. Thurston has a passion for the Holy Scriptures. The Hebrew Aleph-Bet comprises twenty-two letters. This equates to the astonishing fact that the human body also is designated with twenty-two amino acids, all of which are vital to a healthy and productive life on earth. The biblical Hebrew text, which uses those twenty-two letters, is precisely written with a uniquely interwoven mathematical system; yet it retains a poetical and musical sound as you listen to a fluent speaker of the language. Its message is consistent throughout, as it invites the reader to linger at the Master’s buffet table of spiritual insights, eating and digesting soul-satisfying thoughts of eternal life. Finally, I encourage you, dear reader, to consume this wonderful, spiritual food with an attitude of open-mindedness and a hungry, searching heart. So, let us sit down together at the Master’s table, relax, and sip our Aleph-Bet Soup. It is for you, because it is just what the doctor ordered! In Psalm 34:8, the Lord admonishes us to taste of Him. “O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” – Yacov Rambsel Download the book Here

In my flesh I see God – Brad Scott

Brad Scott reveals how the design of the Hebrew Language is found embedded in all of God’s creation. The dynamics of Biblical Hebrew woven through agriculture and biology is a clear second witness to the supernatural revelation of the Word of God in our Bibles. Brad Scott discusses how the structure of the Word of God (linguistics) is found in agriculture and written on our DNA Part 1

Hydrogen to Carbon

Hydrogen to Carbon

Many of the most important chemical fuels are compounds composed entirely of carbon andhydrogen, i.e. hydrocarbons. The smallest of these is methane CH4, a primary component of household natural gas. Other simple common fuels include ethane C2H6, propane C3H8butaneC4H10, pentane C5H12, hexane C6H14, heptane C7H16, and octane C8H18. It is interesting to note that there is a consistency in these molecular formulae: in each case, the number of hydrogen atoms is two more than twice the number of carbon atoms, so that each compound has a molecular formula like CnH2n+2. This suggests that there are strong similarities in the valences of the atoms involved which should be understandable in terms of our valence shell electron pair sharing model. In each molecule, the carbon atoms must be directly bonded together, since they cannot be joined together with a hydrogen atom. In the easiest example of ethane, the two carbon atoms are bonded together, and each carbon atom is in turn bonded to three hydrogen atoms. Thus, in this case, it is relatively apparent that the valence of each carbon atom is 4, just as in methane, since each is bonded to four other atoms. Therefore, by sharing an electron pair with each of the four atoms to which it is bonded, each carbon atom has a valence shell of eight electrons.

In most other cases, it is not so trivial to determine which atoms are bonded to which, as there may be multiple possibilities which satisfy all atomic valences. Nor is it trivial, as the number of atoms and electrons increases, to determine whether each atom has an octet of electrons in its valence shell. We need a system of electron accounting which permits us to see these features more clearly. To this end, we adopt a standard notation for each atom which displays the number of valence electrons in the unbonded atom explicitly. In this notation, carbon and hydrogen look like figure 1, representing the single valence electron in hydrogen and the four valence electrons in carbon.

Figure 1.

Using this notation, it is now relatively easy to represent the shared electron pairs and the carbon atom valence shell octets in methane and ethane. Linking bonded atoms together and pairing the valence shell electrons from each gives figure 2.

Figure 2.

Recall that each shared pair of electrons represents a chemical bond. These are examples of what are called Lewis structures, after G.N. Lewis who first invented this notation. These structures reveal, at a glance, which atoms are bonded to which, i.e. the structural formula of the molecule. We can also easily count the number of valence shell electrons around each atom in the bonded molecule. Consistent with our model of the octet rule, each carbon atom has eight valence electrons and each hydrogen has two in the molecule.

In a larger hydrocarbon, the structural formula of the molecule is generally not predictable from the number of carbon atoms and the number of hydrogen atoms, so the molecular structure must be given to deduce the Lewis structure and thus the arrangement of the electrons in the molecule. However, once given this information, it is straightforward to create a Lewis structure for molecules with the general molecular formula CnH2n+2 such as propane, butane, etc. For example, the Lewis structure for “normal” butane (with all carbons linked one after another) is found here.

Figure 3.

It is important to note that there exist no hydrocarbons where the number of hydrogens exceeds two more than twice the number of carbons. For example,

CH5 does not exist, nor does C2H8. We correspondingly find that all attempts to draw Lewis structures which are consistent with the octet rule will fail for these molecules. Similarly, CH3and C2H5 are observed to be so extremely reactive that it is impossible to prepare stable quantities of either compound. Again we find that it is not possible to draw Lewis structures for these molecules which obey the octet rule.

We conclude from these examples that, when it is possible to draw a Lewis structure in which each carbon has a complete octet of electrons in its valence shell, the corresponding molecule will be stable and the hydrocarbon compound will exist under ordinary conditions. After working a few examples, it is apparent that this always holds for compounds with molecular formula CnH2n+2.

On the other hand, there are many stable hydrocarbon compounds with molecular formulae which do not fit the form CnH2n+2, particularly where the number of hydrogens is less than 2n+2. In these compounds, the valences of the carbon atoms are not quite so obviously satisfied by electron pair sharing. For example, in ethene C2H4 and acetylene C2H2 there are not enough hydrogen atoms to permit each carbon atom to be bonded to four atoms each. In each molecule, the two carbon atoms must be bonded to one another. By simply arranging the electrons so that the carbon atoms share a single pair of electrons, we wind up with rather unsatisfying Lewis structures for ethene and acetylene, shown here.

Figure 4.

Note that, in these structures, neither carbon atom has a complete octet of valence shell electrons. Moreover, these structures indicate that the carbon-carbon bonds in ethane, ethene, and acetylene should be very similar, since in each case a single pair of electrons is shared by the two carbons. However, these bonds are observed to be chemically and physically very different. First, we can compare the energy required to break each bond (the bond energy or bond strength). We find that the carbon-carbon bond energy is 347 kJ in C2H6, 589 kJ in C2H4, and 962 kJ in C2H2. Second, it is possible to observe the distance between the two carbon atoms, which is referred to as the bond length. It is found that carbon-carbon bond length is 154 pm in C2H6, 134 pm in C2H4, and 120 pm in C2H2. (1 picometer = 1 pm = 10-12m). These observations reveal clearly that the bonding between the carbon atoms in these three molecules must be very different.

Note that the bond in ethene is about one and a half times as strong as the bond in ethane; this suggests that the two unpaired and unshared electrons in the ethene structure above are also paired and shared as a second bond between the two carbon atoms. Similarly, since the bond in acetylene is about two and a half times stronger than the bond in ethane, we can imagine that this results from the sharing of three pairs of electrons between the two carbon atoms. These assumptions produce the Lewis structures here.

Figure 5.

These structures appear sensible from two regards. First, the trend in carbon-carbon bond strengths can be understood as arising from the increasing number of shared pairs of electrons. Second, each carbon atom has a complete octet of electrons. We refer to the two pairs of shared electrons in ethene as a double bond and the three shared pairs in acetylene as a triple bond.

We thus extend our model of valence shell electron pair sharing to conclude that carbon atoms can bond by sharing one, two, or three pairs of electrons as needed to complete an octet of electrons, and that the strength of the bond is greater when more pairs of electrons are shared. Moreover, the data above tell us that the carbon-carbon bond in acetylene is shorter than that in ethene, which is shorter than that in ethane. We conclude that triple bonds are shorter than double bonds which are shorter than single bonds.
