Jehovah’s Witnesses: As Subtle as a Red Serpent

Everyone is familiar with the aggravating visits of Jehovah’s Witnesses. It’s come to be somewhat of a stereotypical joke… how to be rid of them or hide from them when they come knocking on the door in their polished apparel and stacks of pamphlets in hand.

Perhaps it is a much better policy to attempt to witness truth to them instead of avoiding the visit, but many who attempted this have also known how difficult a task that can be.

For all the well-known labels this fringe denomination has gathered to itself… few people outside of the Jehovah’s Witness faith, and perhaps even not a majority within it, have any really good idea what their religion is about or from where it came.

For those who have been disillusioned with mainstream Christianity (and rightly so)… the teachings of JW can sound incredibly attractive and reasonable.

In the recent years, because of the notable distrust many believers have developed toward Church-style Christianity, the doctrines of Jehovah’s Witnesses have made somewhat of a come back.

With their negative stance towards allegiance to earthly government, a refusal to participate in Christianized pagan holidays, and their disdain for involvement in military affairs… this religion can seem to be the answer to all things that are wrong with both mainstream Christian doctrine and a corrupt government.

For this reason, it’s good to be armed with some basic understanding of the deeper roots of this denomination so that we are never tempted to confusion when presented with it by one of those door to door visits.

Jehovah’s Witnesses have their beginning in the “Bible Student movement” founded by Charles Taze Russell in the late 1800’s, the literature of which was published through Zion’s Watch Tower Tract Society.

Charles Russell 1905

The movement was set in motion by Russell’s insistence that the Christianity of the day was fundamentally corrupt and restoration of a more true-to-scripture faith was in order.

None of these publicly given reasons were untrue, or without merit on their own, yet for all the insistence on a truer Christian doctrine, those which came out of Russel’s movement, as well as the Jehovah’s Witnesses after his death, are unscriptural to the point of having a translated version of the scriptures which exist for the sole purpose of supporting them.

The doctrines of the sect in this day are set down by a governing body which has an authority that is put on a near-equal level with the scriptures themselves… a practice which is extremely reminiscent of Catholicism, which elevates papal decisions and church tradition above the letter of scripture.

The Watch Tower society maintains that all doctrinal change is the result of clearer revelation of scripture… revelation which they are open to receiving, by their own admission, through angels as well as Elohim Himself.

Lay people of the faith are not permitted to question or dispute the “revelations” given to the governing body, and they are routinely discouraged from independent research or study of scripture which might lead to questioning the doctrine.

Watch Tower with Masonic Cross

It is well known that JW do not believe that Yahushua is Elohim, equal and One with the Father…

it is much less known that they ascribe to Him a synonymous identity with both Michael the archangel…

and with Abaddon or Apollyon, the destroyer “angel of the bottomless pit” mentioned in Revelation.

There’s scarcely any need, I dare say, to point out the unbelievable level of blasphemy in the later comparison. It is, in fact, a degree of blasphemy which is dangerously bordering on, if not completely immersed in, the unpardonable sin. It is also a connection which finds itself a well established precedent in Luciferian belief systems where Messiah is purposely confused with Lucifer.

It is less surprising that we would find a hint of Luciferian doctrine in the teachings of the JW when it is discovered that the organization itself has received much funding and support from the Rothschilds, a leading Luciferian globalist family, through the foundation known as “B’nai B’rith”, a group disguised as a charitable Jewish fraternity.

B'nai B'rith Certificate

It is, in reality, no more than a sect of Freemason-flavored Illuminism dressed up as a Jewsih society. Note the all-seeing masonic “eye of Ra”, phoenix depiction, and multitudes of other occult symbolism on B’nai B’rith certificate above.

In the 1920’s, as eugenics were becoming more in fashion, The Watch Tower Society published very blunt statements of bigotry against minority groups, claiming a biblical foundation for such statements like this one:

“It is generally believed that the curse which Noah pronounced upon Canaan was the origin of the black race.

Certain it is that when Noah said, “Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren,” he pictured the future of the Colored race.

They have been and are a race of servants, but now in the dawn of the twentieth century, we are all coming to see this matter of service in its true light and to find that the only real joy in life is in serving others; not bossing them.

There is no servant in the world as good as a good Colored servant, and the joy that he gets from rendering faithful service is one of the purest joys there is in the world.”

(The Golden Age, July 24, 1929, p. 702)

The only version of scripture which Jehovah’s Witnesses use is known as the “New World Translation”. From the start, it’s hard to ignore the innuendo of such a name. The “New World”, and everything which bears a title referring to it, has been single-mindedly established for the long term goal of ultimate globalist rule. Fitting then, if this version of the scriptures should reflect that same agenda.

The New World Translation was published in 1961 by the Watch Tower society by way of an anonymous committee of translators.Nothing is known about who this group was comprised of other than they were reportedly of multinational origins.

The members refused for their names and identities to be made public, insisting that the reason was to avoid being credited with the translation, since that credit belonged to “Jehovah” alone. On the contrary side, neither can anyone verify the honesty, integrity or expertise of anyone who worked on this translation and it is fair to say that while they might go uncredited with the results, they also go uncriticized.

Charles Taze Russell, the founder of the Bible Student movement from where JW derive is a person who is highly protected in mainstream research sources from too much scrutiny.

If one is to do a cursory, surface level search of this man’s history it is likely to show nothing which is not completely benign and all attestations to the contrary are quickly buried. He is simply noted as a “Restoration” minister from PA.

It is worth noting that Russell was quite eclectic in his spiritual tastes as a young man and immersed himself in a number of eastern religious systems like Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism.

This isn’t surprising since the form of “Christianity” which Russel eventually founded has a distinct connectedness with Rosicrucianism, a Christianized Occult belief system which grew out of Eastern and Mideastern philosophy.

Russel apparently had no qualms about ignoring the warnings of date setting which are mentioned in the gospels regarding the return of Messiah.

After a predicted date of return and rapture was set and met with failure, he decided that Messiah had indeed returned in 1874, but did so invisibly, and had commenced ruling from the heavens since then.

He further predicted that after a period which he called the “Gentile Times”, Messiah would come visibly and rule on Earth in 1914 – interestingly coinciding with the start of WW I.

This prediction is unlikely to be mere coincidence… Albert Pike, the man famous for having written the script on the three world wars before a single one of them occurred, was a known Illuminist Freemason, and it is not surprising that anyone of high affiliation with such societies would be well aware of the same plans.  Albert Pike and the Three World Wars

Charles Russell was an outspoken Zionist in the Rothschild, political tradition. The in-gathering of Jews into Palestine was a central component of his beliefs and the teachings which he zealously spread at the same time as the Rothschilds were formulating the resettlement.

It was Russell’s message to the Jews that they need not bother with conversion to Christianity, being already chosen by Jehovah, they need only resettle in their land and receive their blessing.

Without a doubt, this Zionist movement was one of the greatest disservices to Jewish people that ever came out of anything calling itself “Christian”.

Charles Russell's "Chart of the Ages"

You will find any mention of Russell being affiliated with Freemasonry to be hotly denied by JW and the Watch Tower society, and even outright denials of Freemasons that he ever was one of them, but records still exist (at least for now) which name him as being a member of a Templar Mason, York Rite lodge in Allegheny Pennsylvania.

He was known for utilizing the masonic pyramid in his publications as well as the “winged disc” of famed, ancient occult symbolism. His own grave site is adorned with a large masonic stone pyramid monument. He made a public statement on his affiliations with Masons, denying that he had any… sort of.

“Although I have never been a Mason … Something I do seems to be the same as Masons do, I don’t know what it is; but they often give me all kinds of grips and I give them back, then I tell them I don’t know anything about it except just a few grips that have come to me naturally..”

– Special 1913 Convention Report of the Internal Bible Students, “The Temple of Gods” pages 120-127.

Charles Russell's grave marker monument

Anyone who knows the fundamentals of the use of secret handshakes and hand signs by the Masons, understand that its a rather complex, subtle system, not even always visible, as in the case of handshakes, but only felt by where and how pressure is placed on the receiving hand. Nothing of the sort would “come naturally” to anyone never made aware of how to return them.

It should certainly be noted that the surname of Pastor Russell is not an unfamiliar one in the world of globalists, Illuminsits and Satanists.

One of a number of families who’s surnames crop up again and again throughout history attached to secret societies, global influence and royalty… Russell’s family belongs to one of the so-called “elite” branches.

The family name itself gave homage to the notion of the “red line”… the red serpent or rose line which is traditionally understood to be a reference to the serpent or dragon nephil bloodline.

Charles Russell’s uncle, William Huntington Russell, is in fact, the co-founder of the infamous Yale society known as “Skull and Bones”. The original founder and trustee of Yale college was also a Russell.

The peculiar occult interests of Russell were not entirely obscured from his followers and he recommended some reading which is a view into his questionable philosophies.

A book entitled “Angels and Women”, which he supervised the editing of, was dictated to a spiritual medium by a fallen angel.

He insisted that the contents were still of benefit to others because there were biblical truths contained in it, in spite of the fact the source of the material was an evil entity.

Russell’s successor, Joseph Franklin Rutherford, only pushed the boundaries of acceptable doctrine further, revising many of those left by his predecessor.

In spite of Russell’s strong Zionist persuasion, Rutherford eventually veered from that so far as to become pointedly anti-Semitic. He began the publication “Golden Age Magazine”… the name of which will throw up a red flag for anyone familiar with occult lingo. The name derives directly out of the Crowley styled Thelemic philosophy “Secret Teachings of the Golden Dawn”. The term “Golden Dawn” itself referring to the arrival of a New World Order.

Clayton J. Woodworth, editor of The Golden Age, writing a commentary on Revelation for the publication called The Finished Mystery, claimed to have been the victim of demonic influence during the process.

“I came directly under the influence of evil spirits, so much so that for three days I was as completely under demonical control as was Mrs. Eddy when she wrote “Science and Health.”

– Thirteenth Souvenir Convention Report, p. 274

Rutherford continued Russell’s disturbing reliance upon spiritual mediums and demonic messages to give “good” information, claiming that “honest demons” were helping humanity come closer to the “secret of life”.

The name of the Watch Tower Society itself is not original to Jehovah’s Witnesses. The term is well known in Hermetic occult practices or so-called “Enochian” magic as a station of one of four spirit guardians… namely Watchers, over one of the four cardinal directions. These “Watchtowers” are invoked during ritual magic and coincide to certain stars; Fomalhaut, Aldebaran, Regulus and Antares.

The connectedness that the Jehovah’s Witness faith, its founder and its history have to occult practices, Illuminism, globalist goals and a New World Order agenda, should not be ignored.

For those who are already part of this faith, it should surely be questioned as to why questioning itself, or researching for ones self, is so very discouraged. That such a stance shares a parallel with the general long and convoluted trend towards a “Brave New World” should be enough to cause concern. For those who might be persuaded to JW beliefs… now you have some things to think on.

Rephaim : The Reincarnate Possessors

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/08/2010 by timenolonger

The subject of reincarnation is rarely delved into by followers of Yahushua past the point of delegating it to a category of false occult or pagan belief. While there is no sound biblical evidence for the occurrence of reincarnation of the human spirit (though some may disagree)… there is some interesting, if rarely discussed, explanations in scripture for the prevalence of a belief in reincarnation throughout pagan cultures from the earliest to the most recent.

There is a mistake to be made in a complete, willful ignoring of what pagan belief systems held as true, in that these records cannot be brushed off as complete fabrications of imagination born in ignorant and godless minds.

At one point in the far past, all humanity had one common record of events from which derived a variety of partial truths or biased views of true events perverted thus by fallen spirits during a lost time, when no man personally recalled the beginning and no man had yet been given the testimony of the Creator.

When so much has been craftily translated into and out of the original languages which the testimony of His Truth was given… we have arrived in a time when it is simply not enough to read a KJV (or other English version of scripture) and come to the conclusion that all that is recorded therein is precisely what was written.

With fairly little effort, any person can use a concordance of original languages to better gain a picture of what has been given to men to know… before the same fallen powers which have constructed half truths all along, came in to undermine His message.

Buddhist Ancestor WorshipWhat can be gained from a mature study of pagan beliefs are the mile markers of history that, though defaced, can be used to lead one to seek a scriptural answer to the truth of how those subjects really entered upon the world scene.

In this day we hear quite a bit from the New Age community on “ascended masters”. This concept is a very old one but the term and it’s present popularity began with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, founder of Theosophy and the Theosophical Society.

The basic idea of this belief is that these ascended masters have lived successive lives in multiple incarnations on the earth, gaining knowledge as they proceed to a point of great enlightenment at which time they are considered masters and teachers of humanity.

It is further believed in certain occult circles that at the point at which a reincarnated soul reaches this status they are able to retain and recall the memories of their various past lives.

The “Illumined” Luciferian or Illuminati concept of a Moon Child ties in closely with the concept of ascended mastery. A Moon Child ritual is a very dark and high level occult ritual which requires blood sacrifice, the goal of which is to call into a prenatal infant, a demonic entity which will not just possess, but displace the original spirit, and live out a mortal life in the body.

It is necessary to clarify that the use of the term “demonic” here is to refer to a nephil spirit, a human/angel hybrid who has died and whose spirit is free-roaming on the earth. 1 Enoch gives some information on spirits of this kind:

“The spirits of the giants shall be like clouds, which shall oppress, corrupt, (cause to) fall, contend, and bruise upon the earth. They shall cause lamentation. No food shall they eat; and they shall be thirsty (for a habitat); they shall be concealed (invisible), and those spirits shall rise up against the sons of men (torment), and against women; for they come forth (from them) during the days of slaughter and destruction (the flood or deluge). And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment. Thus, they shall perish, until the day of the great consummation of the great world. ”
– 1 Enoch 15

Aleister Crowley, infamous Satanist and Freemason, wrote on the Moon Child stating that the ritual ensured the “perfect” spirit for the body, likening spirits who await their reincarnation to butterflies and in his book entitled Moonchild, the villa where the ritual was performed to create Moon Children was named The Butter-fly-net.

The CIA projects Monarch and MKultra created Moonchildren and made the connection between bloodline and the spirits which were obtained to inhabit the bodies.

As with various ancients traditions on reincarnation, the spirit which reincarnates into the prescribed body must do so in a body which belongs to the same hereditary line… hence Moonchildren were normally made of children who belonged to one of the “blue-blood” families.

A very curious creature is named in Old Testament scripture which has gone by the wayside to be identified as simply one more tribe of heathens with which Israel had disagreements.

Modern scholars of Old Testament scripture are much perturbed by the definition and etymology of the name of this people called the Rephaim. It would seem, perhaps at first glance of a few uses of the name in a KJV bible, that they are, indeed, just a tribe of people.

Genesis 14:5 “And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim”

Genesis 15:18-20 “In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: The Kenites, and the Kenizzites, and the Kadmonites, And the Hittites, and the Perizzites, and the Rephaims,”

It occurs after these references though, no less than 17 times, that Rephaim or Rapha is translated “giant/s”… here are a few examples:

2 Samuel 21:18 “And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant.”

1 Chronicles 20:4 “And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sippai, that was of the children of the giant: and they were subdued.”

Deuteronomy 2:11 ” Which also were accounted giants, as the Anakims; but the Moabites call them Emims.”

Deuteronomy 2:20 “(That also was accounted a land of giants: giants dwelt therein in old time; and the Ammonites call them Zamzummims;”

Joshua 17:15 “And Joshua answered them, If thou be a great people, then get thee up to the wood country, and cut down for thyself there in the land of the Perizzites and of the giants, if mount Ephraim be too narrow for thee.”

Perhaps most strange of all is that this word is also translated as “dead” on several occasions. Instances where Rephaim/Rapha are translated as “dead” are listed below:

Job 26:5 “Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.”

Psalms 88:10 “Wilt thou shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise thee? Selah. ”

Proverbs 2:18 “For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead.”

Proverbs 9:18 “But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.”

Proverbs 21:16 “The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.”

The Hebrew definitions of Rephaim, it’s root and offshoots are:

rapha/ raphah – to mend, cure or thoroughly make whole…
or as a noun (rapha): a ghost, the dead…
or as a noun (raphah) something invigorating, a giant
or as an adjective (raphah): feeble, idle, still
Rephuw: cured
Rephach: sustain

It becomes incredibly confusing to attempt to reconcile each of these definitions to one root, and especially confusing to understand how each of these ideas should be applicable to one group of ancient people, incorporating both the ideas of something dead: a ghost, something feeble or ethereal, with something which seems opposite of that: the concept of healing and revitalizing – while the definition of “giant” is thrown in besides.

Taking all this into consideration with some clues that have come down from the culture itself though, begins to fit the pieces of the puzzle together.

Scriptural text is not the only historical mention of Rephaim… these people were also discussed by Phoenicians and Ras Shamra Ugaritic texts. A warning against raiding a Sidonian king’s tomb reads “May there be no resting-place for you with the Rephaim”.

Phoenicians clearly understood rephaim as being spirits which inhabited the netherworld. Ugaritic texts explains them as being divine in nature though not precisely “gods”. They are also described as a warlike people.

It was customary that they prayed to the rephaim, brought food offerings and flowers in hopes of benefiting their dead loved ones, a practice which is identical with ancestor worship, and we can safely conclude that is what it was. (Pictured below, a Korean Jesa Altar)

Korean Jesa AltarThe Rephaim, in the understanding of those cultures, were partially divine, ancestral spirits. It becomes then, crystal clear, why YHWH made a point of letting it be known to His people that He is an Elohim of the living and not of the dead.

The hybrid offspring of rebel angels and mortal women were born to physical bodies, having earthly mothers, but the spirits of these creatures, once their bodies perished, were not like the human spirit – which, once deceased, proceeded to a “holding place” (whether a restful one or a tormenting one). Neither were their spirits beholden to the natural process of mortal life followed by a judgment.

In Hebrews 9:27 it is recorded for mankind:

“And as it is appointed for men to die once but after this the judgment,”

…but for nephil spirits: “… And as to the death of the giants, wheresoever their spirits depart from their bodies, let their flesh, that which is perishable, be without judgment.” – 1 Enoch 16:1

Their judgement awaits the great judgment at the end of all ages, until then… they roam the earth, and it is possible for them to take up incarnation over and over, in physical bodies which descend from their own hereditary line.

Understanding this, it then becomes clear why a word or words in Hebrew describing one group of people should encapsulate the ideas: giant, (a product of angelic and human procreation) ghosts, (disembodied spirits who have lived perishable, flesh lives) and healing or revitalization (an ability to reincarnate).

The Rephaim, then, are those particular nephil spirits who return successively to live multiple mortal lives, becoming the highly esteemed “Ascended Masters” of the New Age movement.

It is not hard to imagine what great influence embodied ancient spirits like these can have on modern society as a whole and what important part they can play in helping to achieve a NWO agenda… it is also not difficult to figure out why YHWH warned His people to never have anything to do with communication with the dead.

Although it is flatly assumed by many that no nephil can be saved, I would have to utterly disagree just by the mere fact that at this point in history there is very likely no pure human left on earth.

It is statistically probable that since the time of Yahushua (the last point in time a pure human lineage would have been entirely necessary) that due to the greater ability to travel about the world in hours rather than months… the whole world has become a melting pot of lineages.

If no person whose bloodline was adulterated with fallen angelic bloodlines was able to be redeemed, we might well have a whole world of unsalvageable souls.

This is not to say that I believe that every person who has any trace of non-human blood is capable of future incarnations by any means, rather that is the result of being a high percentage of angelic ancestry (50/50 or 75/25 where the lineage comes from the paternal grandfather).

I would also venture to add that if any half-angelic nephil were to repent during the course of a mortal life, they would possibly no longer continue to re-enter further physical lives (as the loss of memory from one physical life to the next might negate the decision to repent).

Would this be some “unfair” advantage to nephilim? No… I don’t think so… in a creature who was so thoroughly predisposed to evil at their first conception and must undergo (more or less) the entire learning process over and over again… it would remain much more difficult for one of these to come to a knowledge and acceptance of the truth, having an ever present influence of fallen spirits, if anything, the chances of repentance would decrease with each reincarnation.
