Eschatology in the Bible 3: False Prophets

(Copyright Gospel Communications International, Inc - www.reverendfun.com)

I have in the previous records just pointed out some problems with the dispensationism, or the theology of the Lord’s coming is just around the corner and will retrieve the saved, and the unsaved will be left behind for a while in a thousand years, and then establish the millennial. I lack just to explain my view and I will try as best I can to come to this in my further posts.

In “The Timeframe in Matthew 24” you did see the time frame of Jesus’ prophecy, and the judgment of Jerusalem, but I made a big jump all the way to Mat. 24:34 and did not bring the warnings that Jesus gave to his disciples and those things that happens in the tribulation (Matthew 24:4 – 33). I’ll fix it now and make some posts about it.

Eschatology in the Bible 2: Hole in end-time teaching

No foundation in a hole

In my last post we was in Matthew 24 and you saw what time frame Jesus speak in and what time frame the prophecy he gives in, specifically the first century before the year 70 AD. We will not let go of Matthew 24 completely yet, but bring it along with couple of other passages to see the gaps or “holes” that are added to the end-time question, to let it fit into a system. Forcing something into a system is also called Procrustes method, or bring something into a prokrustesbed, as Pentecostals and other evangelical use (Prokrustesbed = To put something on prokrustesbed is to exercise violence against the reality of getting it to fit in their system. Thus, the system scale, and not reality).  Continue reading Eschatology in the Bible 2: Hole in end-time teaching

Our inner Decoration

Did you know that you are God’s temple? Did you know that God’s Spirit lives in you? Did you know that if anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him;
…for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple?
[1. Corinthians 3:16-17].

If you didn’t know this, I tell you that you actually are God’s temple, His precious one. I encourage you to let Him build the temple He likes in you, and you will never regret.

If you are not God’s temple, or to say it in another way, not saved for heaven, I encourage you to receive Jesus Christ and as your savior, God’s begotten Son, and receive the Holy Spirit who build the temple in you.

Let me write some verses from the scriptures who explain for you what kind of building you are and what decoration you will get: Continue reading Our inner Decoration

Christmas, A Pagan Celebration

“Men like the opinions to which they have been accustomed from their youth;  they defend them, and shun contrary views;  and this is one of the things that prevents men from finding truth, for they cling to the opinion of habit.” (Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, Rambam)

It’s december and most of the people prepare themselves to a big celebration at the 25th. It’s not only a specific group of people who celebrate christmas, but most of us do it, also Christians. I was once one of them who celebrate christmas because I was raise up in this tradition as most of us have been.

I became a Christian and after some years I start to dig out more about this and finally I find the truth, I find out that christmas is a pagan habit, origin from Nimrod and a worshiping to Baal and his wife Astarte. Is this something Christians should partake in?

Today, I don’t take a part of this anymore and many see me as a weird guy, in Christians eyes I may be a “dark man”, but the truth is that those who partake in idolatry is the one who are “dark men”. Christians should fly away from this pagan habit, and not embrace it as they do it today.

What is Christmas?

What really is it at december 25th? Well, it’s sure not Jesu birthday!
It’s actually Tammuz’s birthday, Nimrod’s son. According to Assyrian and Babylonian legend, Nimrod died in his best age, got immortal by his spirit fly up to the sun and dwell there. In this way, Nimrod became the sun-god – heaven-god. He also got the name Baal and his wife, Semiramis got the name Astarte. (Both of them have many names)

Nimrod left behind his wife pregnant, but Semiramis deny it and said she was virgin when Nimrod die. She claim that she got fertilized by Nimrods spirit, who had come into her as a sunbeam, and the outcome of this is the child Tammuz. At her death, she became “goddess of heaven” – mother of god. The reason was that her soul had rise up to the moon and became immortal. Semiramis and Astarte is also mention as “goddess of war”, “goddess of heaven” and goddess for the underworld.

As I mention above, it’s Tammuz’s birthday at december 25th, the one who they say is born by a virgin, Semiramis, and this is hide in to the christmas as we have today. Babylonian celebrate “christmas” at december 25th, a date for winter solstice, the day the sun have birthday, the day the sun is reborn. Isn’t this very similar to the story of Jesu birth?

A hidden celebration in christmas

When the catholics started to introduce and “christianize”, the Greek one-sided worship of Babylonian gods could not continue if they wanted to make “harmony” among the Greek, Jews and Christians. They solve this in an easy way, to make and “christianize” Babel’s paganism and idols into “Christian” symbols and name.

That’s why we have christmas today, but the date and the celebration is the same. As I like to say it “Same shit in new wrapping.” Christmas is placed on december 25, by the Catholic, and claim it’s Jesu birthday, on the yearly worshipping and celebration of winter solstice, on the Tammuz birthday, on the day when the sun have his “birthday” and where the sun-god, Nimrod is reborn (in Tammuz).
Just as you know it, december 25th is NOT the birth of Jesus, He was born in september/october. (If you like to know when Jesus is born, you can read about it here.)

Semiramis, mother of Tammuz, was made and Christianized into virgin Maria (mother of Jesus), by the catholic church.
“… Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?… Behold my mother and my brethren! And he (Jesus) stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.” (Mat.12:46-50)
Worshiping of Maria is the hidden worshiping of Astarte (Semiramis), Babylonian goddess of heaven.

To “christianize” the pagan symbols and days, the false prophet have hidden the worshipping of Babylonian’s paganism. People have been fooled!

Many of you may protest loudly with the truth of this, because it’s a huge tradition who are rooted so deep in us and you may feel your whole life will fall, especially at december. You may feel this truth will take away something good from you, kind and pious, but don’t loose hope, God have never take away from us anything who is good for us, has He?

Symbols

Symbols are strong tools to “pray” forth and bring out spirits and make emotional feelings.  So as for christmas, we have wreaths, trees and other ornaments, which are part of the pagan worshipping. Asherah or Artemis is mention 40 times in the Bible and her image is a tree, a date palm or palm tree as you also can see in the scripture below (Jer.10:1-5). At the same time it’s also a male “phallus”, the balls hanging on the tree are male balls and you can just imagine what the gold and silver tinsel are. This symbol’s are important for them. The round wreath is a symbol for the sun and at the same time uterus, both are symbol’s of fertility for the pagan’s.

Warnings in the Bible

We can go all the way back to Deuteronomy to find this pagan practice, and God warn Israel to NOT bring this in to their house or to their practice. Read:

Deut.16 21-22: – 21 Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee. 22 Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy God hateth.

 

Jer. 10:1-5 –1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: 2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. 4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not. 5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.

And

Deut. 7:26 – 26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

Paul fight against this too (Act.19:23-41). Diana is the roman name of Semiramis (Ishtar).

In 1.King.18:16-21 we can read about Elijah fight Baal and Asherah. Jezebel who was married to King Akab of Israel, is the one who brought this pagan idolatry into Israel at this time.

We meet her spirit (Jezebel) again in Rev.2:18-29, and in Rev.18:4 the Lord give the church a message, “come out of her!” — 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

God gave Israel many warnings and told them to turn away from this pagan idolatry. As we know, they didn’t turn and was scattered around the nations. He give this message today too, through the Bible and the Holy Spirit.

I could write a lot more but it will take too much space here. I let you think over what you have just read and if you want, you can find more here.

You, who read the Bible and Believe in Jesus Christ, follow what God have told us to do and not to do. Do you think that it’s ok to celebrate christmas? God forbid!
