Mattia Ballatori - L’argomento dei segni e simboli è un argomento IMMENSO e per tale ragione mi limiterò a mettere dei link alla pagina Alarma perché gli argomenti lì sono trattati in modo ottimale, nei minimi dettagli e sono confutati attraverso la parola di Dio. Non avrebbe avuto senso modificare gli articoli della pagine prendendosene immeritatamente il merito...Chi ha scritto queste cose. oltre a essere un fratello in Cristo, ci ha impiegato 16 anni.
"Il mondo è governato da SEGNI e SIMBOLI, non da leggi e frasi."
Il filosofo cinese aveva capito già ai suoi tempi che il MONDO è totalmente guidato dai segni e simboli … oggigiorno siamo circondati da segni e simboli e nemmeno ci facciamo più caso.
Con un occhio più attento andremo a vedere che i simboli fanno parte della nostra vita quotidiana e che gli occultisti inseriscono tali segni e simboli OVUNQUE per fare propaganda al regno dell’anticristo, ovvero il nuovo ordine mondiale.
Per chi non ha mai approfondito l’argomento dei simboli e segni, gli posso assicurare che una volta che avrà “fatto caso” a QUANTI simboli ci circondano ne rimarrà stupito.

Voglio ringraziare pubblicamente l’amministratore della pagina Alarma, Marco Vuyet, per avermi aperto gli occhi su molte cose.
Spero VIVAMENTE che questo articolo venga visionato da più persone possibili affinché la maggior parte della gente apra gli occhi alla realtà che ci circonda fatta di segni e simboli.
Per chi volesse visitare il sito e la pagina:
Oggi vogliamo portare all'attenzione di tutti i nostri lettori un articolo che parla della magia e delle pratiche di occultismo. Tutte le pratiche occulte, la magia, in senso lato, sono severamente VIETATE dalla Bibbia in base a quanto è scritto in:
Levitico 19:26 - Non mangerete nulla che contenga sangue. Non praticherete alcun genere di divinazione o di magia.
Deuteronomio 18:10 - Non si trovi in mezzo a te chi faccia passare il proprio figlio o la propria figlia per il fuoco, né chi pratichi la divinazione, né indovino, né chi interpreta presagi, né chi pratica la magia,
Apocalisse 21:8 - Ma per i codardi, gl'increduli, gl'immondi, gli omicidi, i fornicatori, i maghi, gli idolatri e tutti i bugiardi, la loro parte sarà nello stagno che arde con fuoco e zolfo, che è la morte seconda».
Apocalisse 22:15 - Fuori i cani, i maghi, i fornicatori, gli omicidi, gli idolatri e chiunque ama e pratica la menzogna.
Fin dai tempi antichi la magia e le pratiche occulte sono state diffuse in vario modo e la maggior parte delle persone che hanno assistito con i loro occhi ai “trucchi” magici sono rimaste stupite.
Atti 8:9 - Or in quella città vi era da tempo un uomo di nome Simone, il quale esercitava le arti magiche e faceva stupire la gente di Samaria, spacciandosi per un grande uomo. 10 E tutti, dal maggiore al minore, gli davano ascolto, dicendo: «Costui è la grande potenza di Dio». 11 E gli davano ascolto, perché già da molto tempo li aveva fatti strabiliare con le sue arti magiche.
Molto spesso gli spettatori che assistono ad uno “spettacolo” di magia non riescono quasi mai a capire COME il mago o la maga di turno riesca a compiere tali “meraviglie”. Qualche volta si tratta semplicemente di inganni illusionistici, ma ci sono altre volte che rinveniamo vere e proprie potestà soprannaturali ad operare per conto degli illusionisti. Comprendiamo che qualcuno possa sorridere e magari considerare quasi eccessivo quello che stiamo scrivendo, ma la verità è che in certe situazioni non si tratta di trucchi illusionistici ma di veri e propri atti reali inspiegabili da un punto di vista umano.
Nel dizionario etimologico, alla voce magia, troviamo scritto: Dottrina degli antichi maghi o sacerdoti medo-persiani, od anche quella parte della loro scienza, che riguardava la evocazione degli spiriti o dei morti, la divinazione del futuro, la taumaturgia od operazione dei prodigi per cooperazione di spiriti "benefici" o "malefici".
Riassumendo il significato etimologico della parola “Magia”, comprendiamo che: la magia è la dottrina che opera prodigi (miracoli) per mezzo dell’aiuto di spiriti. Quello che molti maghi fanno finta di non sapere (o non sanno) è che il 100% delle volte (quindi SEMPRE) gli spiriti che aiutano questi maghi sono spiriti malefici, ovvero DEMONI. Non c’è da meravigliarsi che il diavolo e i suoi seguaci facciano dei MIRACOLI per attirare più anime possibili a loro.
La Bibbia ci dice chiaramente:
II Corinzi 11:14 - E non c'è da meravigliarsi, perché Satana stesso si trasforma in angelo di luce.
Apocalisse 13:13 - E faceva grandi prodigi, facendo persino scendere fuoco dal cielo sulla terra in presenza degli uomini,
Apocalisse 13:14 - e seduceva gli abitanti della terra per mezzo dei prodigi che le era dato di fare davanti alla bestia, dicendo agli abitanti della terra di fare un'immagine alla bestia, che aveva ricevuto la ferita della spada ed era tornata in vita.
Apocalisse 16:14 - Essi infatti sono spiriti di demoni che fanno prodigi e vanno dai re della terra e del mondo intero, per radunarli per la guerra del gran giorno di Dio Onnipotente.
Apocalisse 19:20 - Ma la bestia fu presa e con lei il falso profeta che aveva fatto prodigi davanti ad essa, con i quali aveva sedotto quelli che avevano ricevuto il marchio della bestia e quelli che avevano adorato la sua immagine; questi due furono gettati vivi nello stagno di fuoco che arde con zolfo.
Oggigiorno questi maghi si vantano delle loro capacità soprannaturali perché con l’aiuto dei demoni compiono dei veri e propri miracoli.
Dimenticatevi di pensare o dire: “Qual è il trucco?”
Qui il “trucco” non esiste perché questi sono i miracoli bugiardi descritti nella Bibbia:
II Tessalonicesi 2:9 - La venuta di quell'empio avverrà per l'azione di Satana, accompagnata da ogni sorta di portenti, di segni e di prodigi bugiardi,
Matteo 24:24 - Perché sorgeranno falsi cristi e falsi profeti, e faranno grandi segni e miracoli tanto da sedurre, se fosse possibile, anche gli eletti.
E’ scritto che queste persone potranno far vacillare anche i cristiani chiamati alla Salvezza compiuta da Cristo Gesù sulla croce, quindi stiamo ATTENTI e VIGILI perché:
I Pietro 5:8 - Siate sobri, vegliate, perché il vostro avversario, il diavolo, va attorno come un leone ruggente cercando chi possa divorare
Marco 13:13 - E voi sarete odiati da tutti a causa del mio nome; ma chi avrà perseverato fino alla fine sarà salvato».
Apocalisse 2:10 - Non temere ciò che dovrai soffrire; ecco, il diavolo sta per gettare alcuni di voi in prigione per mettervi alla prova, e avrete una tribolazione per dieci giorni. Sii fedele fino alla morte e ti darò la corona della vita.
SOLO chi avrà perseverato FINO ALLA FINE e FINO ALLA MORTE sarà salvato.
Detto ciò, adesso vedrete una serie di PROVE che facciano capire a tutti che la magia è più reale di quel che sembra. Elencheremo alcuni link nei quali vedremo "miracoli" operati da sedicenti maghi che tentano di replicare i miracoli di Gesù, (chissà perché?)

Si dice che i maghi e coloro che hanno a che fare con il mondo dell’occulto abbiano fatto dei patti con i demoni o addirittura si dice che abbiano VENDUTO L’ANIMA al diavolo per ricevere poteri soprannaturali … Beh, se avete visto TUTTI i video sopra vi renderete conto che NON è una diceria e che quello che fanno tali maghi NON sono trucchi ma è REALTA’…
Il sottoscritto DENUNCIA la magia e tutte le pratiche occulte che sono VIETATE dalla Bibbia in base a quanto è scritto in:
Levitico 19:26 - Non mangerete nulla che contenga sangue. Non praticherete alcun genere di divinazione o di magia.
Deuteronomio 18:10 - Non si trovi in mezzo a te chi faccia passare il proprio figlio o la propria figlia per il fuoco, né chi pratichi la divinazione, né indovino, né chi interpreta presagi, né chi pratica la magia,
Apocalisse 21:8 - Ma per i codardi, gl'increduli, gl'immondi, gli omicidi, i fornicatori, i maghi, gli idolatri e tutti i bugiardi, la loro parte sarà nello stagno che arde con fuoco e zolfo, che è la morte seconda».
Apocalisse 22:15 - Fuori i cani, i maghi, i fornicatori, gli omicidi, gli idolatri e chiunque ama e pratica la menzogna.
Che si tratti di magia nera, bianca o rossa, di guarigione, di seduzione, “buona” o “cattiva” NON HA IMPORTANZA perché la magia e l’occulto sono SEMPRE una VIOLAZIONE alle leggi del Signore e
… a te che leggi …
SE pratichi la magia di qualsiasi genere o hai a che fare con l’occulto, sappi che TUTTI gli esseri umani quando moriranno dovranno comparire davanti al tribunale di Cristo:
II Corinzi 5:10 - Noi tutti infatti dobbiamo comparire davanti al tribunale di Cristo, affinché ciascuno riceva la retribuzione delle cose fatte nel corpo in base a ciò che ha fatto, sia in bene che in male.
Ma sta anche scritto che:
Giovanni 3:16 - Poiché Dio ha tanto amato il mondo, che ha dato il suo unigenito Figlio, affinché chiunque crede in lui non perisca, ma abbia vita eterna.
Romani 10:9 - poiché se confessi con la tua bocca il Signore Gesù, e credi nel tuo cuore che Dio lo ha risuscitato dai morti, sarai salvato.
Deuteronomio 30:15 - Vedi, io pongo oggi davanti a te la vita e il bene, la morte e il male;
Deuteronomio 30:19 - Io prendo oggi a testimoni contro di voi il cielo e la terra, che io ti ho posto davanti la vita e la morte, la benedizione e la maledizione; scegli dunque la vita, perché possa vivere, tu e i tuoi discendenti,
Vostro conservo fratello Mattia Ballatori
Apriamo adesso un topic, scritto dal nostro collaboratore Mattia Ballatori, che fa il punto di situazione su un argomento che oggi lascia, quantomeno, molto perplessi; la robotica. E si, in altre occasioni abbiamo sollevato il problema, evidenziando strane analogie tra quello che sta succedendo e il racconto biblico sull'Apocalisse. Ma riteniamo importante offrire questo articolo che riassume la questione, come punto di partenza al quale agganciare via via tanti altri sviluppi dello stesso tema. Le diverse Nazioni oggi spingono molto verso questo versante, che sembra in grado di garantire azioni particolari con costi che sono considerati irrisori dinanzi a quelli di addestramento del personale e del rischio di perdita di vite umane.
Il settore che si sta espandendo sempre più è proprio quello della robotica. Purtroppo quest'ultimo viene spesso usato per scopi bellici e gli Stati Uniti d’America vi giocano un grande ruolo.
Gli U.S.A. “vantano” di avere la Boston Dynamics e la DARPA. Le due aziende lavorano in sinergia, e, come la stessa home page della boston Dynamics asserisce, le organizzazioni mondiali, dalla DARPA, all'Esercito Americano, al Corpo marino e navale, alla Sony corporation, si rivolgono alla Boston Dynamics per consigli o aiuto nel creare i più avanzati robot sulla Terra. La “Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency” che tradotto letteralmente in italiano significa "Agenzia per i Progetti di Ricerca Avanzata per la Difesa", più conosciuto con la sigla DARPA, è invece un'agenzia governativa del Dipartimento della Difesa degli Stati Uniti incaricata dello sviluppo di nuove tecnologie per uso militare. Vediamo allora alcuni dei principali prodotti della Boston Dynamics e capiremo fin dove l'uomo si è riuscito a spingere:
LS3 -- E' un robot fuoristrada progettato per andare ovunque i Marines e i soldati vadano a piedi, contribuendo a trasportare il loro carico. Ogni LS3 trasporta fino a 181 kg di attrezzi e di carburante sufficiente per una missione di 32 Km della durata di 24 ore. LS3 segue automaticamente il suo leader con visione computerizzata, in modo che non ha bisogno di un driver dedicato. LS3 viaggia anche verso luoghi designati mediante rilevamento del terreno e GPS, (LS3 VIDEO).
ATLAS -- E' un robot umanoide per fare percorsi all'aperto, e andare su terreni impegnativi. Atlas cammina in modo bipede, come gli essere umani, lasciando gli arti superiori libere per sollevare, trasportare, e manipolare il terreno circostante. Sui terreni estremamente impegnativi, Atlas è forte e coordinato abbastanza per scalare con mani e piedi, per prendere la sua strada attraverso gli spazi trafficati. Le mani articolate consentono ad Atlas di utilizzare gli strumenti progettati per uso umano. E’ dotato di sensori e telecamere, (ATLAS VIDEO). Il suo predecessore, PET-PROTO, un prototipo di animale, evita gli ostacoli e sale le scale, (PET-PROTO VIDEO).
CHEETAH -- Cheetah è un robot in grado di correre ad una velocità superiore ai 46 Km/h. Se questo sembra un risultato di poco conto, si consideri che comunque in battaglia non conta tanto la velocità quanto la possibilità di avenzare, anche step by step, (CHEETAH VIDEO).
Ci sono poi robot in grado di saltare fino a 9 metri, (SANDFLEA VIDEO), altri che possono passare attraverso qualsiasi tipo di terreno, (RHex VIDEO), Altri che possono arrampicarsi in verticale, (RISE VIDEO). E questi robot, sebbene abbiano grosse potenzialità, in realtà sono stati ufficialmente creati per scopi "ludici" o di intervento per dispersi e roba del genere. Un'altra società, la Cyberstein Robots che ha creato “Titan the robot”, questo robot, PER IL MOMENTO, viene usato a scopo ludico per intrattenere la gente. Titan interagisce con le persone ed è stato “invitato” nelle città più famose del mondo, nonché dalle persone più famose al mondo. Però, da un alòtro video, che ci sembra abbastanza inquietante, il "buon" Titan, vedendo un uomo ubriaco, gli sferra un pugno, (minuto 1:16 del VIDEO). Ma esistono anche altre Ditte, meno famose ma non meno "agguerrite" che hanno creato robot incredibilmente grandi e robot incredibilmente piccoli. Dei “simpatici” ingegneri americani della MegaBots Inc. hanno sviluppato un “innocuo” robot di 4,5 metri di altezza. Per il momento, spara soltanto palline colorate. Domani?
Anche i giapponesi che con i loro cartoni animati hanno creato già tempo fa robot giganti, hanno avuto la “brillante” idea di crearsi un proprio robot gigante come quello degli americani. Il robot “Kurata” prende il nome dal suo creatore Kogoro Kurata, ed è stato sviluppato dalla società Suidobashi Heavy Industry. Ed ecco il VIDEO di Kurata. Come se non bastasse, i giapponesi hanno messo a disposizione il loro “Kurata” sul sito e-commerce Amazon al prezzo di ￥120.000.000, ovvero circa €1.000.000.
La DARPA poi si sta dando da fare anche nei droni,e anche in formazione sincronizzata, (DRONIX). Perfino nella robotica, si sono cimentati in tal senso a creare delle locuste robotizzate! E questo inevitabilmente ci riporta non solo all'articolo che abbiamo precedentemente pubblicato in merito ad una cavalletta robotizzata creata dal governo israeliano, ma anche all'Apocalisse quando si parla di locuste che avevano effetti come gli scorpioni.
Chiudiamo l'argomento con una foto che ci lascia quantomeno basiti: quella di una zanzara robot che sarebbe in grado di impiantare il microchip della Bestia. Su Google si trova di solito sotto il nome di “mosquito rfid” o su Youtube “mosquito drone in u. s. can take your dna and apply rfid chip”. Riguardo a ciò premetto che NON sono riuscito a trovare informazioni certe riguardanti la seguente foto. Ma diverse indiscrezioni la fanno risalire alla Harvard university la quale, oggettivamente, è vero che ha costruito dei nano-robot a forma di insetti, (VIDEO).
Because of the Torah Law, Jews worship Elohim as their Supreme God.Because of the Koran Muslims worship Allah as their Supreme God.Because of the OT & NT scriptures "true" Christians worship Jesus Christ as their Supreme God.Amazing, as it turns out all three religions claim to be Monotheistic and claim to follow God.ONLY ONE IS CORRECTJust as amazing, both Torah Law Jews and Muslims deny the biblical reasons Jesus Christ came to this earth, who andwhat Jesus Christ was and is, why he was the Logos of the Omnipresent-Invisible One Divine Spirit = God, until he wasborn in Bethlehem.In the Bible Gospels the angel Gabriel came to Mary and tells her she will have a son, his hebrew name will be Yeshuawhich in English is Jesus Christ. His father will be the (one divine)Holy Spirit (Via Immaculate Conception). Also, Yeshuawill be the son of the most high (God = Divine Spirit) and the Saviour (By the Cross).600 years later Muhammad claims the angel Gabriel came to him over a 20 year period and gave him the Koran.In the Koran every aspect in the mission, birth, life, ressurcetion, and ascension, of Jesus Christ is rejected by Gabrieland thus the Muslim Koran.Bottom line: God cannot lie and will not lie against his divine will but lying spirits can. This means these two visits ofGabriel 600 years apart were not by the same angel. One was Gabriel the other was a lying spirit. Take you pick!If the lying spirit was sent to Muhammad it had to be sent by the Lord Jesus Christ. So, why would the Saviour who hasall power in heaven and earth send a lying spirit to Muhammad or any human on the earth? Answers follow:Isa 45 I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and thereis none else.
 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.2 Thes. 2 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, thatthey might be saved.
 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.The Jews go even farther to reject the Messiah, Saviour, Son of God, God manifested in the flesh, the Lamb of God whichtaketh away the sins of the world, Redeemer, the Logos I' AM, all who are Jesus Christ.1. Torah Law Jews and secular Jews claim Jesus Christ was not fathered by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.They claim Mary was Raped by a Roman soldier and this Roman was his father. Thus Jesus Christ is a bastard and cannotbe God.The unforgivable sin is to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. These Jews deny the Holy Spirit is the father of Jesus Christ and denythe deity of Jesus Christ. This qualifies as an unforgivable sin. To Hell Fire they will go!2. One step farther. These same Jews and most Christians deny the name of the everlasting father (See below), to place the Son ofGod in a second place subservient baby Jesus in the arms of Mary position, to the Father who is not his father. This too is blasphemyagainst the Holy Spirit. To Hell Fire they will go.PROOF:Isa. 9 For unto us a child is born (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),unto us a son is given: (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),and the government shall be upon his shoulder: (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),and his NAME(Singular) shall be called Wonderful (Jesus Christ-Yeshua),Counseller (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),The mighty God (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),The everlasting Father (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua),The Prince of Peace (Name = Jesus Christ-Yeshua).Take your pick, there is only one plan of salvation that can save a lost soul. It's the plan Jesus Christ gave his first Apostles. Groupslike the Roman Catholic's, Modern Oneness Pentecostals, Greek Orthodox, and Protestants, who all claim to be Apostolic are not evenclose to the Doctrine of the Apostles.It's you decision.Bishop Dr. John Sims, DD.The Apostolic Prophet.
John 8:30-32, 36 -- Jesus; our Creator and Savior, desires and wants all of His followers to know the truth. He said to all those Jews, Hebrews who believed Him; “If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.” “And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free indeed.” Shall: plan to, or intend to. Shall in time, finish or complete in being steadfast. So, as we grow, continue in Jesus and His word, and we will truly and indeed know Truth and be completely free in Truth! Jesus said; “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life!” The only way to the Father! John 14:6 In Jesus is all things of life, and that pertains to life and godliness. 2 Peter 1:2-4 Jesus told us Himself; “That when the Comforter, the Advocate, the Intercessor is come, whom I will send from the Father, the Spirit of Truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. John 15:26
Let’s look at the Creator’s Word of how this all came about. 1 Tim. 3:16 without controversy, contention, strife, and argument, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. This is the Body, the Son, the Flesh Who is the image of the invisible God, the Spirit! Col. 1:15 the manifestation of the only almighty God and Creator! In John 14:21-23 Jesus told His disciples that He would manifest Himself again. His disciples didn’t understand; but Jesus told them, “If anyone loves Me and keeps My Word, My Father will love him, and We, We will come to him and make our abode, or home in him.”
Notice: Jesus said, “We will come.” Speaking of Himself and His Father. And Paul said it this way, Rom. 8:9 speaking to Spirit filled believers; “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. God is Spirit, Holy Spirit! The essence of the departed One, Ghost; Holy Ghost! The Father is Holy Spirit! The Son is Holy Ghost! The We Who came to dwell in His believers, is the one and same Spirit! There are not two different spirits!! His Word declares this in 1 Cor. 12:4-13 there are different gifts, but the one and same Spirit. The Spirit of Truth!! John 16:13-15 Jesus is saying, “However, when He the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears he will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify me, for He will take of what is mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are mine. Therefore I said that He will take of mine and declare it to you.” Jesus wants us to know all His truth! Truth that is from above! Truth that will set us free, truly free!! Truth and freedom that is only in His kingdom!!
This world does not know Truth and Wisdom that is from above! The world has taken its knowledge and understanding, from the fallen fruit of good and evil that Satan offered them. It was not from the fruit that was for the natural body, as an apple or pear as I hear people say. But it was fruit for the soul, the mind. The knowledge of good and evil! It was, “worldly wisdom.” After Satan fell he went out conquering and to conquer. Before I go any further, since I am teaching; let me teach this. The word Lucifer is not Satan’s name. The word there in Isaiah 14:12 in Hebrew is: light bringer, day star, or morning star. The word Lucifer is a Latin word that means shining one, (the same meaning,) but in Latin. It is from the Latin Vulgate Bible of 400 AD. The King James writers used the word in their translation and used it as a name; the name of Satan before he fell. I have several Bibles, and the only ones that use this word is the King James, the New King James, and the Living Bible. All the others do not use this word. One is a Jewish Bible! Look what Adam Clarke says about this. One thing he says is “why would anyone want to call Satan a son of the morning??” This is referring to Nebuchadnezzar like a natural morning star of Jupiter or Venus in all that he had accomplished in his kingdom reign. Dan. 5 and 6. He was the great tree cut down! This is referring to the king of Babylon. Adam Clarke says of Isa. 14:13 “This chapter speaks not of the ambition and fall of Satan, but of the pride, arrogance, and fall of Nebuchadnezzar. Going back; after Satan fell he went out conquering and to conquer. He is the white horse and rider in Rev. 6:1-2 And the only way that he could do this is by deceiving and lying. He went in a false peace. His first subject was Eve. And after he got mankind to fall he went to work with his bow and arrows, or fiery darts. Eph. 6:16
The next; red horse and rider, killing one another, and war. Cain killed Abel, then his 3th great grandson, Lamech, killed a man. Then all kinds of wars and killing all through time.
Then the third, a black horse and rider, with a pair of scales in his hand; which was famine to a measure. All this happened a while after the beginning and all through time. A time of famine to a measure was in 849 BC; 2 Kings 6:4-30 The king of Syria, Ben-Hadad; got all of his armies and besieged Samaria; and caused a great famine. The famine got so bad that a donkey’s head was sold for eighty shekels of silver, and one fourth of a kab; a kab is, (2 quarts) which would be 1 pint of dove’s dung for five shekels of silver. And some people were eating their own children.
Another time famine was to a measure was in 587 BC; when Nebuchadnezzar besieged Jerusalem. 2 Kings 25:1-3 In the ninth year of the reign of Zedekiah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his armies came against Jerusalem and encamped against it. So the city was besieged until the eleventh year of King Zedekiah. Around a year and two months. Ezekiel prophesied of this in Ezek. 4:10-11 And your food which you eat shall be by weight or measure, twenty shekels a day; from time to time you shall eat it. You shall also drink water by measure, one sixth of a hin; from time to time you shall drink.
The fourth, a pale horse with its rider of death. And Hades followed with him. Power was given to them over a fourth of the earth or world; to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beast of the earth. This is what happened when mankind sinned, which let Satan have some control on the earth. All through time, one fourth of this earth’s population has been killed through these ways. These are the four horse-men of Rev. 6:1-8
Jesus told all of His followers of His kingdom, who abide in His Word, to know the truth and be completely free, altogether free in this world. There are so many false religions, false ways, false teachings, and cults in this world today; and they just keep multiplying. All these false ways and teachings began with Babel, and Babylon, which means: “confusion.” The tower, (emblem) and city of what I call; the religion of Satan. These people were in such confusion by listen to the Devil, and doing it all their way, that God just when down and confused their languages and scattered them throughout the world. This false religion of, “Mystery Babylon The Great” is still in power today. The last great nation is beginning to fall now, because it is accepting the complete confusion of all these teachings. This being, America! This is recorded in Rev. 18 But in all of this mess of falsehood and uncertainty today; there is certainty and truth!! The Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit of all truth is ever present. So that we can know the truth and be completely free! WHEN WE KNOW AND HAVE THE TRUTH AND THE COMPLETE FREEDOM OF HIS WORD: THEN WE WILL KNOW AND HAVE THE TRUTH AND FREEDOM OF THIS WORLD; AND NOT BE OF THIS WORLD!!!
Let me say here; I am getting on thin ice, way out on a very small limb as I am going with this of what Jesus said about all this. God’s Holy Word is so very true, and forever settled in heaven!! AMEN! Of over 25,000 denominational groups, and that most have come by way of the “Mystery Babylon” of Catholicism; every one of these see and teach this “Precious Truth” in all their different ways. And most of these do not believe in having the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost as His Word tells us to. The beloved John tells us, “It is the last hour, time, instant; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and even now many are here, by which we know that it is the last hour. There were those that went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been, they would be still with us.” “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. The anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as His anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and not a lie, and as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.” John is not saying that you do not need to be taught by others. God has put preachers and teachers over us. But that when they teach us; the true anointing Spirit in us from Him lets us know if they are teaching and preaching Truth and not a lie! John went on to say, “I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ;” Joshua (Yeshua) is the Messiah! 1 John 2:18-27
There is very, very little natural truth in this world today. It has mostly been corrupted. As the Word of the Lord says; 2 Thes. 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one, or wicked one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders; and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will give them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be damned, or condemned who did not believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. Today we can see and hear that just about all things that this world does and says are just lies. And it has been this way for many, many years. Most of this world does not know what truth is! All that are of truth, and know of truth, know full well that the last seven or so years these leaders of our country have done nothing but lie and deceive. It all is in plain sight, in front of the whole world. I keep seeing and hearing people on Facebook that just can’t believe what Obama, the lawless one, and all the leaders in Washington has done next. When the Word of God tells us plainly of all that is going to happen in these last days. 2 Tim. 3:1-9, 13 That evil, wicked men and seducers would grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. Judgment is coming on every sinful nation of this world!
Jesus said, for us to know the TRUTH and the TRUTH will deliver you or make you FREE!! I want to speak truth about this nation of America. This nation, like the countries it came from; England, France, Spain: the main three; made this a nation by taking the land and killing the nation that was here; the Turtle Island Nation. Which they called the Indian Nations. The British, France, and Spain; these Europeans did these same acts around the world. These were war like people that just took what they wanted. These were religious people who were, Quakers, Puritans, the Church of England, Catholic, and later on all the denominations that came from them. They called themselves “civilized” but they didn’t have the Spirit of Jesus. They wanted independence from the country that they came from. So they set up a man made government and drew up a declaration of independence. It started out good as it read: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” But on down in this declaration as they accuse their mother country of England of all that she was doing to them, and wanting independence from her; let’s read. This government here accused England; “for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.” The very same way they were doing the people here!! They accused England of; “sending hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out our substance.” The very thing they were doing to the people here!! They said; England “has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws.” The very same thing they were doing here!! ”And for quartering large bodies of armed troops among us.” All this they did here!! “For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments.” As they were doing here!! “He; (England) has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.” They did all this to the people here!! “He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.” Their same actions done here!! “He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions.” When what these people were doing was trying to protect their families, their homes, their lands, their freedoms, and their lives from a genocide, extermination!!!!
As I want all to see and realize, I am speaking truth as a “born again man of God!” Not of my Indian side. Not of my Irish side, or of my Scottish side. I am not speaking this in anger or revenge. TRUTH IS TRUTH!!! And as Jesus said; truth, Spiritual or natural will deliver you and make you free! Satan is our, and our Creator’s enemy. When mankind fell from his place in God, this fall gave Satan room to work on mankind his only way; by deceiving and lying. And he has done a good job. Much of history and things that took place through time is just plain lies. But “truth” is always there and has been revealed as it is, all through time. There are many books that have come out with the truth that was kept out of history
TIME FOR TRUTH MINISTRIES
Rev. Curtis Petty
Should Christians Stop Celebrating Christmas?
For many years, I have come across several different biblical reasons why not to celebrate Christmas. I agree with most of those reasons. When Adonai led me to a messianic congregation about fifteen years ago, I was confronted with the fact that Christmas is based on pagan traditions, not to mention Yeshua was not born in December. I immediately stopped celebrating Christmas my kids were horrified and hated it. I am sure many thoughts I was crazy. All the while I struggled in my heart about the whole thing. I struggled because I had seen all the good that was done during the Christmas season. I struggled on a deeply personal level as well.
My childhood wasn’t perfect I have very few fond memories. My parents fought all the time and eventually divorced. There was physical and mental abuse by both my parents. I was teased and bullied by family and kids at school. I was probably a difficult child.
The most wonderful memories I have as a child was at Christmas. It was the only time I felt love and peace. When I had my family, I embraced the Christmas Spirit so to speak. I found out I was pregnant with my youngest child the week of Christmas that was a good Christmas. When I gave my life over to Adonai Christmas was, even more, meaningful.
Then my husband left me, and I was devastated and I had trouble celebrating Christmas. Every year Adonai would bless us at Christmas as a single mom this meant a lot to me.
One year I had no money for gifts and the large church I was going to let you dip your hand in the offering bucket as it went by to help with Christmas. To my dismay, there was only one dollar in the bucket. What I didn’t know was the ushers were dipping in the buckets for me. They gave me five hundred dollars that year.
Another year I didn’t have any tree or ornament and no money for presents. My cousin calls me out of the blue to ask if I needed a tree and ornaments. That same week I got another call from the church asking if they could bring presents to the girls. My girls received almost 20 presents a piece that year.
I would watch all those Christmas shows and cry and cry every year. Watching all those miracles in the movies and my personal life just moved my heart and helped my faith explode.
God showed me love during Christmas, so I couldn’t understand why celebrating Christmas was bad. I didn’t have peace not celebrating, so I decided to ask God for His opinion.
He showed me this scripture
Luke 2:8-14 (NASB)
8 In the same region there were some shepherds staying out in the fields and keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened.
10 But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
12 "This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased."
I noticed in the scripture above several things. The first thing I noticed that the Angel in verse 10 said I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all people. Messiah birth is Good News and with great joy we should rejoice because He was born.
The second thing I noticed in verse 13 and 14
13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.
Did you notice? They celebrated His Birth by praising G-d and Giving Him Glory.
The Key is that even the Heavenly host celebrated Yeshua’s birth.
God spoke to my heart and said, “Michelle it is ok to celebrate Yeshua’s birth just celebrate this birth in a Holy manner. Honoring Him. Going and telling people about my love. And celebrate all the day along the year, every year”.
I finally had peace I had permission to celebrate my Saviors birth. Of course, this was good news for me and filled me with great Joy. Because now I could celebrate His birth for the right reasons.
Now the question is Should Christians celebrated Christmas? My answer would be no!! It does not give praise and glory to our Father in Heaven or our Messiah Yeshua. You cannot mix the Holy with the profane.
We can Celebrate Messiah’s Birth with new traditions that are void of Pagan Origin, Traditions that honor God that can be made holy unto God. Praising Him and giving HIM the glory for the birth of G-d’s Son Yeshua.
I do believe you can celebrate Messiah’s Birth and Not Celebrate Christmas
To those who know the truth and have struggled with the thought of not celebrating Christmas a tradition that has brought you closer to G-d that has always brought joy to the heart to celebrate. I understand your struggle, and so does Adonai. Please pray about what G-d would have you do!
STOP CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS this year by removing the profane pagan traditions.
START CELEBRATING MESSIAH’S BIRTH by praising G-d and giving HIM glory honoring HIM by being Holy and separated unto Him. Tarring down those pagan idols that Christmas brings to our hearts.
You may have to Take a long time and a lot of praying, but You can do all things through Messiah, who strengthens You.
The real fundation of the truth in this precious article by the AWCF chairman Bishop Samuel Smith. Have a good reading and may God bless you
ISLAM: Is it...anti-Christ?
The World needs to know!
by Bishop Samuel Smith
While preaching soon after the infamous attack, September 11, 2001, by Islamists upon the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, I said; "Judgment is coming to America," immediately I was checked by the Holy Spirit, I felt the Lord say to me,"Judgment is already here."
As it was in the days of Noah before the flood, America is eating, drinking, indulging in every type of leisure and pleasure, much of it decadent and ungodly."Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34). I remember hearing, as a young preacher in the 1960's, "If God does not judge America, He would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." Fifty years later, clearly the 60's were mild in comparison.
2..."Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed..." (Genesis 9:6).
3..."Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes" (Romans 3:15-17).
Muhammad came along at a time when Arabs were fighting each other to survive, many living in great poverty and oppression. He spent thirteen years building a spiritual platform; then the remaining ten years of his life as a warrior. It was his military success, accompanied with cruel and ruthless behavior, that cemented his place in history. In a single decade he fought eight major battles, led 18 raids, and planned 38 military operations.
Consider the fruit of Islam in the world today. When Saddam Hussein, one of the most vile, cruel men who ever lived; responsible for three wars during his evil reign in Iraq; countless executions, whose actions ultimately triggered the turmoil that engulfs the Middle East today; when about to be executed for his crimes, said; "There is no God but Allah, and his messenger is Muhammad."
Al-kindi, one of the early Christian apologists against Islam, pointed out that Islam and its god Allah did not come from the Bible but from the paganism of the Sabeans. They did not worship the God of the Bible but the moon-god and his daughters al-Ussa, al-Lat, and Manat. (Three Early Christian-Muslim Debates, by N. A. Newman, 1994, pages 357, 413, and 426).
Please carefully note these random passages from the Quran, a book that is held as holy among Islamists, who claim to be a religion of peace. One of the most notable signs of the end-time, spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ; "Take heed that no man deceive you" (Matthew 24:4).
Quran, Sura, 2:244... "Then fight in the cause of Allah."
Quran, Sura, 4:104... "And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy."
Quran, Sura, 5:37..... "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and feet cut off in opposite sides."
Quran, Sura, 8:12...... "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them."
Quran, Sura, 8:57....... "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them."
Quran, Sura, 8:65....... "O Prophet, exhort the believers to fight."
Quran, Sura, 9:5......... "So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them."
Quran, Sura, 9:123..... "O you who believe, fight those of the unbelievers who are near you and let them find you in hardness (no mercy)."
Quran, Sura, 17:16...... "And when We wish to destroy a town, We send Our commandment to the people of it who live easy lives, but they transgress therein, thus the word proves true against it, so We destroy it with utter destruction."
Quran, Sura, 47:3-4..... "Those who reject Allah follow vanities. Therefore when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until you have overcome them."
Quran, Sura, 48:29....... "Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers."
IT IS HAPPENING NOW!!!
ABC New, August 15, 2014: "The photo showed a hand holding up an image of the Islamic State flag in front of the White House. It was tweeted on August 9th with the accompanying message: 'We are in your state, we are in your cities, we are in your streets. We are coming for you.' Another photo in front of the White House showed a note written in Arabic, saying; 'Soldiers of Allah will pass from here soon'."
Reuters News, August 19, 2014: "Islamic State message to America; 'We will drown all of you in blood'."
Wake up America! What is happening throughout the world today is exactly what the Quran teaches. It is exactly how Muhammad began the Islamic movement in the seventh century, an example for his followers ever since. It is exactly how Islam has spread around the world. All one has to do is read history. And, it has already come to America: (1) September 11,2001, thousands died as a result of the attacks upon the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and the failed attempt to fly a plane into either the White House or the U.S. Capitol building, thwarted only by the brave passengers aboard, causing it to crash in Pennsylvania before the Muslims could complete their suicide mission. (2) The vicious murders of 13 Army personnel, and wounding many others, at Fort Hood, Texas, by a professed Soldier of Allah, shouting "Allahu Akbar". (3) The assassination of an Army recruiter by a Muslim extremist at a recruiting station in Arkansas.
These current gross atrocities and irrefutable facts from history are conveniently overlooked by the politically correct crowd who unwittingly fulfill the prophecy of Jesus, (See Matthew 24:38) that in the last days they would be eating and drinking, indulging in the pleasures of life while Satan subtly places a strangle hold upon them, with the sure Judgment of God waiting. They justify their complacency, believing that only the fanatical fringe of Islam commits these deplorable acts: that they are outnumbered by moderate, peace-loving Muslims, therefore wrongfully concluding that Islam is not a threat. Indeed, there are moderate Muslims, who enjoy the freedoms, benefits, and prosperity of western-styled democracies. But, in their heart of hearts, at the end of the day, they believe what the Quran teaches, and are willing to let the fanatics do their dirty work; otherwise, why is there no outcry, no protest, by the moderate Muslims against the savagery of the terrorists?
Muhammad had multiple wives (12) after his first wife died; one wife (Aisha) was only 9 years old, and several he took after killing their husbands. For centuries, scholars and prominent leaders have called Muhammad a mass-murderer and pedophile. Strangely, it is only a recent phenomenon when the compromised, ill-informed, willfully deceived politically-correct crowd promotes the ideology that Islam is a religion of peace, and that we have nothing to fear from it. They would scrub and rewrite history, conveniently ignoring the lessons of the past; thus, making it more than possible that America suffer the same fate as those in other times and other places, under Islamic domination. America, wake up! It is an indisputable truth, supported by history, that this nation was founded upon the Judea-Christian ethic."Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord..." (Psalm 33;12). Come Home America!
America is under Judgment!

No SAINT in SODOM!!! - Powerful breakthrough about homosexuality.... to be absolutely read!
It is important that these points are clearly understood before one reads the following, No Saints in Sodom!
1) This article is not homophobic; a true Christian cannot harbor hate nor prejudice.
2) A thorough research of history and Biblical study reveals that every culture and civilized people group have observed a definite moral code, and have soundly rejected homosexuality. That condemnation has not been based on mindless bias, but the realization that this behavior has, if not immediate, for sure, long-term detrimental effects upon society.
3) Every nation that has experimented with condoning what the Bible identifies as sin, has suffered greatly. "Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34).
This article is not presented with unkindness towards anyone; but, firstly, a defense of a plainly stated Biblical standard, and secondly, a sincere love for the soul who has been deceived. Either God's Word is correct or it is not! Since we believe in the inerrancy of Holy Scripture, how can we love the transgressors of God's Word without warning them? Thus, the premise for No Saints in Sodom!
Our nation has taken a dramatic wrong way turn on the road of righteousness. From the ruling of the United States Supreme Court overturning state anti-sodomy laws, the election of the first gay bishop in the Episcopal Church, to the ABC News Special, "America's fascination with Gays;" the moral culture has been struck a devastating blow! In 1978, the homosexual lobby was just beginning their crusade promoting the gay agenda; responding to a newspaper column by a pro-homosexual pastor, Bishop Samuel Smith, in his weekly newspaper column answered with a three part series, entitled, "No Saints in Sodom." The contents of that series then, compared to recent events, have proven to be prophetic, and the message more urgent now than ever before. Please read carefully the following.
No Saints in Sodom is a reprint from 1978; in view of current events, it was prophetic then and desperately needed now.
An area minister stated in the local newspaper: "In spite of the 'present' Judaeo-Christian interpretation of the matter, homosexuals can maintain a meaningful relationship in the church; to say otherwise is to submit to the 'Archie Bunker' syndrome."
This utterly absurd and sinister statement prompted an immediate rebuttal from Bishop Smith in the form of a radio sermon and a three part series in his weekly newspaper column.
No Saints in Sodom!
The name "Sodom" lives on in infamy. In that wicked city, notorious for sexual perversion, the Lord could not find ten righteous men. Sodom was "judgment-bound," but first, God willed to spare any righteous there. Two angels were sent to warn righteous Lot and his family to flee that wicked place before the wrath of God fell.
While the angels were in Lot's house, the male population of Sodom, believing the angels to be men, demanded Lot to give up his guests to them, that they might "know" them. They desired "carnal knowledge" (sexual relationship), even as "Adam knew Eve, his wife; and she conceived and bare Cain ..." (Gen. 4:1).
The writings of Jude make plain the sin of Sodom. "Even as Sodom ... giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh ..." (Jude 7). In the plan of God, man was made to love, provide for, and to protect the woman, and woman was made to reverence, accompany and complete the man. When man and woman marry, they form a spiritual and physical union so perfect, Paul explained it,"... and they two shall be one flesh" (Ephesians 5:31). Man with man and woman with woman in carnal union is "strange flesh."
After Lot and his family fled the city, God rained down fire and brimstone upon Sodom and its twin city, Gomorrah. The massive crater formed by the devastating wrath of God was overflowed by the nearby Dead Sea. Deep-sea divers have descended to the bottom of the Dead Sea, and have found charred masonry, bricks, and blocks, the remains of the fiery fate of Sodom. Jude tells us that Sodom and Gomorrah "are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire" (Jude 7). God did not approve of homosexuality then and He does not now! There were no "Saints in Sodom" then and there are no "Saints in Sodom" now!
The fact remains that although Lot, himself, was not a homosexual, his continued presence in that environment, with judgment near, would have been fatal to him. What fellowship does "light" have with "darkness," or righteousness with sin? Likewise, the sin of homosexuality poses a threat to the purity and the purpose of the church. The church is to convert sinners, not to condone their sin! The church must remain pure to pursue its purpose! "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:17).
The Apostle Paul referred to "... a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish" (Ephesians 5:27).
The Evansville Courier, July 24, 1977 carried an article stating that many Bible scholars now dispute the Biblical references condemning homosexuality. In the last couple of years, some leading Christian denominations have publicly gone on record as being sympathetic with the goals of the "gay rights" movement, and some have actually licensed known homosexuals into the ministry. Other groups are presently leaning in that direction. These events are a sad commentary on the state of many so-called Christian organizations. Sin cannot be whitewashed!
"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you" (Deuteronomy 4:2). In the light of the unchanging Word of God, homosexuality must be viewed as an abnormality, and a sinful condition from which one cannot maintain a meaningful relationship within the church. Sodomy does not belong in the church!
God said, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination" (Leviticus 18:22). "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:" (Leviticus 20:13).
John the Revelator heard the voice of God and recorded His words,"... the abominable, the murders, and whoremongers ... shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:" (Revelation 21:8). Note that homosexuality is called an abomination in Leviticus, and in Revelation, the "abominable" have their place in the lake of fire.
God spoke again to John, telling him that the obedient would enter the gates into the Holy City; but, "For without are dogs, sorcerers, and whoremongers ... " (Revelation 22:15). Male prostitutes in John's time were called "dogs." God said they could not enter the Holy City!
Apostle Paul wrote, "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind" (I Corinthians 6:9).
Paul condemned those who ignored the truth of God and sought rather to indulge in carnal lust. "Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves ... For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly," (Romans 1:24, 26, and 27).
Homosexuality cannot be condoned! According to the Bible, homosexuals are trapped in a grievous, vile, unnatural, unseemly, wicked, abominable practice, which separates them from the kingdom of God! To approve their sin is to seal their doom! According to the Bible, nothing could be clearer, to be saved, they must change. Christ died to save sinners. Sinners are commanded to repent, lest they perish. Repentance means to be sorry for, and to turn away from sin. It is the role of the church to maintain a standard that exalts the "saving, cleansing, and changing" power of Jesus Christ. If the church condones sin, it cannot convert the sinner!
"For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle" (I Corinthians 14:8)?
We are living in a "tumultuous age." All around us there are conflicts - Jews and Arabs, racial injustice, communists and non-communists; but no conflict is as pronounced as that between "light" and "darkness," righteousness and sin! Immorality, crime, alcohol and drug abuse are increasing. Our nation needs to return to God! The "faith" of our founding Fathers must be brought out of the dusty closet of neglect, polished up through "prayer and revival," and put to use again. "Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs 14:34).
In the front lines leading the call for moral restoration and spiritual renewal, must be the church! In view of the filth on TV, the rise in abortions, the popularity of porn shops and massage parlors, we should be able to plainly see the need for a "Revival of Righteousness." It is time that the church stops "winking" at sin and, instead, becomes the "trumpet" Apostle Paul spoke of to the Corinthian Christians that prepares souls to be victorious in the spiritual battles we are now facing, and will continue to face, against the powers of darkness!
Homosexuality is a vile sin, totally condemned by the Holy Bible! Strangely, many "so-called" Christians are now joining the forces of evil and condoning homosexuality as an acceptable alternate expression, even going so far as stating that the homosexual can be a contributing part of the church. Nonsense! In the following passages of scripture, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, I Corinthians 6:9, I Timothy 1:10, and Romans 1:24-27; homosexuality is referred to as an abomination, abuse, defilement, uncleanness, dishonor, vile, against nature, and unseemly.
In Judges, chapter 19, we are given the account of a traveler who spent the night in the city of Gibeah. During the night, "...certain sons of Belial, beset the house round about, and beat at the door, and spake to the master of the house, saying, Bring forth the man that came into thine house, that we may know him (carnal knowledge)"(Judges 19:22). The host answered the sons of Belial (which means sons of the devil), "do not so wickedly...do not this folly...do not so vile a thing" (Judges 19:23-24).
How can any Bible believing Christian today ignore the fact that the sin of Sodomy is wrong and cannot be justified? If the church condones sin, how can it convert the sinner? The role of the church is to maintain a "standard" that so exalts Christ, that the sinner can take hope that there is a way out of his sin. The blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse all sins, if the sinner is led to repentance.
Repentance is a sorrow for sins committed, and an expressed willingness to change. Jesus said, "...and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out" (Saint John 6:37). Jesus Christ saves those who come to him through obedience, and furthermore, makes them new creatures. He said, "Marvel not that I said unto these, Ye must be born again" (Saint John 3:7).
Those whom Christ cleanses, He changes, and thereby saves. This is the hope of all mankind.
On the cross of Golgotha's hill, Jesus Christ shed His blood to save sinners. Every murderer, thief, harlot, adulterer, and homosexual, therefore, has a way of escape! Where psychology, analysis, counseling, and rehabilitation fail, the blood of Jesus succeeds. Only Jesus can wash away past sins and change the heart of the sinner! For the church to now excuse sin and to permit the sinner license to continue his old ways is to betray the "old rugged cross."
There are no true Saints in Sodom! True Christians adhere to the Word of God, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing, and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:17).
The "hope of the lost," is the message of the church. The church must be the "trumpet" of the "good news;" Jesus cleanses, changes, saves, keeps, and satisfies!
"What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" (Romans 6:1)
The "good news" of the Gospel is that Jesus Christ has come to save sinners! His blood was shed as atonement for the sins of mankind.
The one who obediently comes to God will be a changed person! This is why the Apostle Paul asked the question of those Christians in Rome; "Shall we continue in sin?" He immediately answered the question by saying, "God forbid, we (born again Christians) are dead to sin." The "true saint" has come out of sin through repentance (an expression of sincere sorrow for past sins, and a willingness to change), and has been born again, "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God" (Saint John 3:5).
The process of the "new birth" was fulfilled and explained in full on the "Day of Pentecost," when the Church was born. Read the second chapter of Acts! You will notice in verse 37, sinners cried out,"...what shall we do?" Peter answered, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost" (Acts 2:38). It is the promise of God to forgive the sinner, remit his sins, and empower him, through the Holy Ghost, to overcome sin! Thus, through the "new birth," he is dead to sin, and has become a new creature in Christ.
The greatest lie Satan has ever concocted is, "that Christians may continue in sin and contribute to the good of the church!" There is a moral code definitely set forth in the Word of God. Whoever it is, disobedience is sin! "For the wages of sin is death" (Romans 3:23). The church cannot condone sin! The drunkard, adulterer, homosexual, thief, liar, must be converted, if they are to be saved! To excuse them and pretend they are part of the church is to leave them hopeless and to weaken the church.
There are no Saints in Sodom! Any and all sinfulness must be departed from, even as Lot departed from Sodom. "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (II Corinthians 6:17).
In view of the "signs of the time," the hour has come for honest people everywhere to look to the Bible for direction! The Word of God warns the world of the fate of those who reject righteousness. Likewise the church is ordained of God to raise a standard in these evil days. Sin destroys! Jesus saves! God hates sin, but He loves the sinner. The sinner must forsake his sins to be saved. For this reason: to save, cleanse, and change, Jesus suffered, bled, died, and rose again. To tolerate what Christ sacrificed to atone would be traitorous to the cross, betrayal to the church, and damning to the soul.
Remember, the true Christian is one who comes out of sin. There are no Saints in Sodom! The true church condemns sin and through the "power" of the Gospel converts the sinner to the saving of his soul!
Hard Rock Music, a post II world War product, has risen more and more in these last decades influencing many thousand of people and stating a new kind of music very far from the first God's idea about that. Let us read very deeply this topic written by Bishop Samuel Smith, a very wise Man and chairman of one of the greatest christian association in the world.
Hard Rock Exposed A Startling, Hard Hitting, Plain-spoken
Expose’ on The Music sweeping the World Today!
By Bishop Samuel Smith
This article was first published in 1979 when Rock music had been on the scene less than 25 years. Note the opinions of the experts who then expressed strong warnings relative to the detrimental effects of Rock music upon society. Now, 31 years later, anyone can see that their warnings have been justified and we are witnesses to the deterioration wrought upon our culture. Rock music today is much more extreme than in 1979; music then was tame in comparison to now, causing us to ponder what the future holds if the downward spiral continues at this rapid rate?
Read now, HARD ROCK EXPOSED, written in 1979
In the Book of Revelation, a prophecy is given by God to John on the lonely Isle of Patmos, concerning the one world superstate which will come into being in the “endtime”. The horrors of Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Russia will be pallid by comparison to the political, social and military power wielded by this “superstate”.
All the money will be controlled by the State; those who do not cooperate will starve. All the religions of the world will be brought together into an ecumenical apostate world church. Satan will be in the “drivers seat”!
The governments of the world will be united by an evil man, called the anti-Christ (Beast, Revelation 13). He will derive his power from the Devil himself.
Music will play a large part in the indoctrination of the masses of people to accept this “super system”. According to the Bible, Satan will use music to further his work. “And the voice of the harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee:…for thy merchants were the great men of the earth and by the sorceries were all nations deceived.” (Rev. 18:22-23).
The anti-Christ and his Empire will be utterly destroyed by the return of Jesus with His armies of Saints at the Battle of Armageddon. The Living Bible portrays the fall of Satan’s end-time Kingdom,” …then a mighty angel picked up a boulder shaped like a millstone and threw it into the ocean and shouted, “Babylon that great city, shall be thrown away as I have thrown away this stone, and shall disappear forever. Never again will the sound of music be there – no more pianos, saxophones and trumpets.”
A Satanic Conspiracy?
Is there a Satanic conspiracy in rock music? McCandlish Phillips thinks so. He is a veteran newspaper reporter for the New York Times. Phillips has won many awards in the field of journalism, including the Columbia University Meyer Barger Award for reporting.
Phillips believes there is a Satanic, spiritual force at work in the rock musicians leading them to produce the kind of music which destroys young people; he believes in the “Devil” theory of rock music. In his book, The Spirit World, he states, “Let me assure you that I do not regard rock music as a human conspiracy. If it were, it could not appear so suddenly and run so far so fast. Many of the fads, crazes, styles and practices that are being pushed now upon the young people are demonic in origin and expressively contrary to the teachings of the Bible. Satan’s policy does not change. Not only are there very evident similarities in what the demons are doing at many points in our society, but some of these are virtually identical to what has happened in other societies at former times in history. This is especially so in regard to gross sexual excess and public exhibition. There is nothing new about that; it has always been a mark of once great societies soon to be defunct (ceasing to exist).”
Commenting on a Rolling Stones, album, Phillips says, “In it the same basic Satanic programs – drugs, sex, occultism, and revolution – are thrust upon young people. Satan and the demons have created a quagmire for young people. Now they are urging them to march into it by the masses, and they are supplying the lyrics, the drumbeat, and the time. Many who venture into it, curious to see what it’s like, will sink in it and will never get back out.”
McCandlish Phillips concludes with these comments: “While it is true that the attack on youth is supernaturally planned. The only thing that will break the grip of the supernatural of Satan over young people today is the supernatural power of God.”
Many experts agree that rock music has a mind-bending power. Rock is being used to form hatred of authority, push drug use, sex perversions, and promote Satanism in a subliminal or hypnotic fashion.
William Sargeant writes in his book, Battle for the Mind: “It should be more widely known that electrical recordings of the human brain show that it is particularly sensitive to rhythmatic stimulation by percussion and bright light, and certain rates of rhythm can build up recordable abnormalities of brain function and explosive states of tension sufficient even to produce convulsive fits. Some people can be persuaded to dance in time with such rhythms until they collapse in exhaustion. Furthermore, it is easier to disorganize the normal functions of the brain by attacking it simultaneously with several strong rhythms played in different tempos.” (Page 109).
In plain English, this means that a listener to rock music can be conditioned to accept whatever philosophy of hate and destruction that the rock musicians decide to implant. The rock music listener, after a period of time, becomes transformed into a mental zombie!
At a Rolling Stones’ concert, over 30,000 of these controlled minds watched the Hell’s Angels beat, kick, stomp and finally stab to death their fellow “long-hairs” without so much as a whimper. The crowd had been incited into brutalism by the beat of rock music.
Frank Zappa, leader of the rock group, “Mothers of Invention”, has been quoted as saying, “The loud sounds and bright lights of today are tremendous indoctrination tools. It is possible to modify the human chemical structure with the right combination of frequencies. If the right kind of beat makes you tap your foot, what kind of beat makes you curl your fist and strike?” Zappa knows that rock music can be used for indoctrination purposes. He holds a Masters degree in music from UCLA. He recently made an obscene movie called 200 Motels which showed the “glories” of drugs, Satanism, and sexual perversions.
What the Singers Say
Jimi Hendrix, before his drug-induced death, claimed to commune with spirits. Hendrix said they came to him in visions and they told him that they were establishing an “electric church” of acid, sex and rock.
In LIFE magazine (October 3, 1969, page 74) a full-page spread was devoted to Hendrix. He is quoted: “Atmospheres are going to come through music, because music is a spiritual thing of its own. You can hypnotize people with music and when you get people to the weakest point, you can preach into the subconscious what we want to say. That’s why the name ‘Electric Church’ flashes in and out. The music flows from the air; that’s why I can connect with a spirit. I had a very strange feeling that I was here for something and I was going to get a chance to be heard.”
Overuse of drugs caused Hendrix to suffocate in his own vomit before he could carry this out, but other groups have moved into his place.
Many top rock groups admit they write their songs under the influence of drugs. Timothy Leary, the former guru of LSD, claims these drugs can place one into a spiritual state where occult powers can act on a person. The mystics of the East use drugs in order to go into a trance which enables them to make contact with the spirits, and they are soon possessed by them. Drugs act as a tool to open the mind, and leave one defenseless against spiritual powers. Most of those who belong to the Church of Satan started using drugs.
The original word used in the New Testament for sorcery is “Pharmakos”, the same word from which we get the word “pharmacy” (Revelation 9:21, 18:23, 21:8, 22:15). According to the Bible, all sorcerers (drug abusers) will be destroyed unless they repent. Witches of the Middle Ages also used hallucinogenic drugs in their potions. Then, as now, drugs were used in invoking evil spiritual presences.
Music also has its place in calling up the spirits. There are cults along the Ivory Coast in Africa: the Haitian Voodoun; the Umbanda and Macumba cults of Brazil, are all musically based. In each of these, the cult members dance themselves into a frenzy and are filled with their god. These possessions are brought on by the driving beat of the music.
The same experience has been described by many rock musicians. They feel that something within them causes them to play far beyond their natural abilities.
Ginger Baker, reputed to be the world’s top rock drummer is quoted, “It happens to us quite often – it feels as though I’m not playing my instrument, something else is playing it, and that same thing is playing all three of our instruments. It’s frightening sometimes! Maybe we’ll all play the same phrase out of nowhere. It happens very often with us.”
There is a form of spirit communication called “automatic writing” in which the cultist relinquishes control of himself and gives himself over to the influence of spirits. These spirits guide the writer’s hand to form letters, words, and sometimes whole essays. When writing in this manner, the person does not even know what the next word will be that he will write. These writings commonly contain questionings and derisions of the Deity of Christ.
This is exactly what many rock musicians say happened when they write lyrics. The songs come out highly unified and structured, but the writer just writes what comes to him; very often in a drug-induced trance. For example: in a recent issue of Hit Parader, the leader of the super group, Black Sabbath, says that they just started writing their own material and the group “evolved” into what it is today.
Another rock group, Atomic Rooster, sings a song about a black snake being in a black hole hiding from the sun – until the time comes. They go on to say that this snake hiding in the darkness is the force that makes all the brothers and sisters go wild. In other songs they take on the name of Satan and sing as though they are his mouthpiece, such as their song, “Devils Answer”.
In a recent Warner Brothers album, Master of Reality, Black Sabbath promotes the devil as “Lord of this World”, who takes souls. Instead of encouraging listeners to fear eternity with Satan, the songs urge them to turn to Satan when they die: “The soul I took from you want not even missed, Lord of this World, Evil Possessor. Lord of this World, he’s your confessor now… but will you turn to me when it is your turn to die?”
Rock musician Jim Morrison of the Doors in Miami, Florida, was fined for indecent exposure while on stage before 12,000 young people. He openly invited them to illicit sex with one another while exposing himself.
Morrison chants from his hit record, “The Soft Parade”: “When I was back there in seminary school, there was a person there who put forth the proposition that you can petition the Lord with prayer…” This particular record goes on to blaspheme God and promote Satan. Morrison says that calling on God is like calling on a dog. His songs are laced with drugs, death and sexual perversions of every type. He encourages adultery and knife killing. He invites his listeners to “follow me down”. Morrison often screams at his audiences, “Cancel my reservation to the resurrection”.
Ian Anderson of the Jethro Tull group says in the album, Aquaking: “We are our own saviors, if Jesus saves, then he’d better save himself”.
In the Rolling Stones album, Satanic Majestic, Mick Jagger seems to be singing as though he is the Devil himself: “I’ve stole many a man’s soul. I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment, made d—n sure Pilate sealed his (Jesus) fate, - pleased to meet you, - hope you guess my name.”
In another song, the Stones actually invite listeners to surrender themselves to Satan: ‘Turn off your mind, relax, float down stream; lay down all thoughts, surrender to the voice, and meet shining Satan:
Joan Baez flaunts her homosexuality when she sings, “Double Your Pleasure”.
Rock stars, Lou Reed and David Bowie, sing songs promoting homosexuality while attired in panty hose, rouge, mascara and high heels. Bowie, who records for RCA Victor, brags that he is a bisexual. Bowie’s wife is an admitted lesbian.
How Important Is Satanism To Rock Music?
If you listen to the rock hits, “Stray Cat Blues” or “Midnight Rambler”, you will gain insight into Mick Jaggar and how he could be involved in scoring a motion picture about devil worship called Invocation To My Demon Brother. Starring as Lucifier is Bobby Beausoleil, who, along with Susan Atkins, was held for the murder of Gary Hinman. Hinman had allowed Miss Atkins and Beausoleil, along with Charles Manson, the leader of their cult, to live in his home. Hinman, like actress Sharon Tate and others, died in what was described as a ritual murder.
Another actor in the film scored by Jaggar was Anton LaVey of the Satanic Church in San Fransisco. The Lyrics to Jagger’s song “Midnight Rambler”, - “…I’ll stick my knife right down your throat, baby.” Isn’t that what happened to Sharon Tate?
Consider the Beatles influence on Charles Manson, the master-mind of the Tate-LaBianca massacre. He envisioned the Beatles as prophets and believed the lyrics in their songs were guidelines for a coming revolution.
Manson may have been helped in this belief by the album cover of the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine, where John Lennon is giving a Satanic salute, or the cover of Two Virgins, where one of the only things Lennon is wearing is an amulet containing symbol familiar to devil worshippers. The police found words from Beatle songs written in blood on the walls of the Tate and LaBianca homes.
The News Reports
Perverted sex is a frequent theme of rock music as it attacks the family, motherhood, and all that is normally considered to be the American ethic.
The New York Times reported: “Rock music makes frequent references to the expanded benefit of drugs…Christian ritual comes in for a bad time.”
TIME magazine records the Rolling Stones’ manager: “Rock music is sex and you have to hit them (the teenagers) in the face with it.”
In Harper’s magazine: “The language of rock is grounded in sexuality”.
Again in TIME, the Jefferson Airplane says, “The stage is our bed and the audience our whore. We’re not entertaining, we’re making love.”
The Fort Lauderdale News reported that Jim Morrison of the Doors exposed his private parts before some 12,000 young people and said: “Man, I’d like to see some nakedness around here. Grab your friend and love him. There are no laws. There are no rules.” The local judge later called the performance, “a conspiracy to corrupt the morals of our youth.”
In the magazine, Commonweal, the Beatles admit their songs have perverted and indecent sexual overtones.
Some of the most obnoxious lyrics come from the recordings of Bob Dylan: “Wet Dream Over You”, “Group Grope”, and many others.
In the Rolling Stones’ “Let’s spend the Night Together”, youths are told to fornicate. It is the same in “ I can’t Get No Satisfaction”. TIME magazine quotes Mick Jagger: “The Public doesn’t understand the dirtiest lines.”
One radio station banned a rock record; “…because the lyrics and the beat implied sexual intercourse in a car…” but, the record still made it to the top of the best-selling list.
Former U.S. Senator, James Buckley of New York, has noted: “Rock music is not just symptomatic of the breakdown of our society, it is one of its major contributing factors. Many of the problems with our young people can be traced directly back to the music. It is not a case of music reflecting society, but rather a case of music contributing to the immoral breakdown of our society.”
Rock musicians boast that they have, “sexually liberated” us. Their songs urge adultery, fornication, and homosexuality. However, the American Medical Association gives statistics that show the heavy toll that rock music has taken.
Starting with 1960 as a base year before acid rock had swamped the nation, note the following: One out of ten persons aged 15 – 24 will get a VD each year; or 5,500 new cases reported each day. (The AMA concedes only 11 percent of the cases are ever reported.) In the words of the AMA, venereal disease is past the epidemic stage, it is a “pandemic”. These ages 15 – 24 are the years in which rock music has the most effect with its invitations to promiscuity and illicit sex. In large urban areas, one out of five high school students have VD, (a disease that can eventually cause blindness and death).
Among girls under 18, prostitution is up 318 percent since 1960. Rape arrest for boys under 18 has more than doubled in a ten year period. Drug arrests are up 3,109 percent. teenage suicides are rampant, and our mental hospitals are filled with youngsters who have blown their minds on drugs promoted by rock lyrics.
With devil worshippers reaching into the hundreds and thousands in America, and cults spreading throughout the world; adults must realize that children do not have the ability to distinguish the dangers in rock music. Just as Satanic worship has frequently started with astrology, or a Ouija board, so, too, has rebellion, Satanism, drug addiction, immorality and disease has been brought to our young people through something as simple as rock music.
Former U.S. Senator James Buckley and McCandlish Phillips of the New York Times agree – rock music is a clear and present danger to the people of this nation! It is not merely a symptom, but one of the major causes of the problems of our young people today.
If we do nothing to stop the ravages of Satanic, hard rock music and occultism, we will be forced to “write off” this generation – and the world in which we live as well.
Finally, again quoting McCandlish Phillips: “The only thing that will break the grip of the supernatural of Satan over young people today is the supernatural power of God.”
Author’s note: Today, Rock stars hold sway over our society. They have their own reality TV shows. Their opinions are sought after and quoted as respected authorities on the vital issues of our times. The Beatles have been given the title of “Sir” by the Queen of England. Paul McCartney within this year has performed at the White House, and shamelessly condemned the former President of the USA to the pleasure of most in attendance. Recently, a former governor of the state of Minnesota, was quoted saying, “Rock music is legal, so we should legalize marijuana, they go together.”
Mike Stock, one third of the legendary English pop group, Stock, Aitkin and Waterman, is quoted saying, as late as August 11, 2010; “The music industry has gone too far. It’s not about me being old fashioned. It’s about keeping values that are important in the modern world. These days you can’t watch modern stars like Britany Spears or Lady Gaga with a two-year old. Ninety-nine per cent of Rock music is soft pornography.”
“Wake-up Christian, discern the signs of the time; the spirit of anti-christ is loose in our world and gaining ground. Pray for an awakening! Pray for Revival! Pray that God will show you how to do your part in the day in which we live.”
