Evolution

Does evolution occur and if so, how many family trees are there?

There are at least six different and unrelated  meanings to the word “evolution” as used in science textbooks.

http://carnivalsage.com/articles/hovind-kent-250000-evolution-offer.html

  1. Cosmic evolution–  the origin of time, space and matter. Big Bang.
  2. Chemical evolution–  the origin of higher elements from hydrogen.
  3. Stellar and  planetary evolution– Origin of stars and planets.
  4. Organic evolution–  Origin of life from inanimate matter.
  5. Macroevolution–  Origin of major kinds.
  6. Microevolution– Variations within kinds- Only this one has been observed, the first  five are religious. They are believed, by faith, even though there is  no empirical evidence to prove them in any way. While I admire the  great faith of the evolutionists who accept the first five I object to  having this religious propaganda included in with legitimate science at  taxpayer’s expense.

Even  a quick review of a typical public school textbook will show that  students are being deceived into thinking all six types of evolution  above have been proven because evidence is given for minor variations  called micro-evolution. The first five are smuggled in when no one is  watching.

This deception is  a classic case of bait and switch. One definition of evolution (such as  “descent with modification”) is given and the others are assumed to be  true by association. The first five meanings are believed by faith,  have never been observed and are religious. Only the last one is  scientific. It is also what the Bible predicted would happen. The  animals and plants would bring forth “after their kind” in Genesis 1.

If you were to design several different types of creatures on a computer program you might end up having an artistic signature in your work. Perhaps you would find eyes and arms and more to be functionally useful and aesthetically pleasing and end up using eyes and arms on several original designs from a start.

Should we look at eating utensils or limbs of living creatures and assume any similarity between either of the two groups would automatically be the result of common ancestry? Who shares common ancestry with who if similarity among creatures on even a genetic level can be seen as evidence for both common ancestry and a common designer? What does the fossil record say?

In most people’s minds, fossils and Evolution go hand in hand.

In reality, fossils are a great embarrassment to Evolutionary theory and offer strong support for the concept of Creation.

If Evolution were true, we should find literally millions of fossils that show how one kind of life slowly and gradually changed to another kind of life.

But missing links are the trade secret, in a sense, of palaeontology. The point is, the links are still missing.

What we really find are gaps that sharpen up the boundaries between kinds. It’s those gaps which provide us with the evidence of Creation of separate kinds.

As a matter of fact, there are gaps between each of the major kinds of plants and animals. Transition forms are missing by the millions.

What we do find are separate and complex kinds, pointing to Creation.  Dr Gary Parker Biologist/palaeontologist and former ardent Evolutionist.

Modern apes … seem to have sprung out of nowhere. They have no yesterday, no fossil record.

And the true origin of modern humans … is, if we are to be honest with ourselves, an equally mysterious matter.  Lyall Watson, Ph.D., Evolutionist

A growing number of respectable scientists are defecting from the evolutionist camp … moreover, for the most part these ‘experts’ have abandoned Darwinism, not on the basis of religious faith or biblical persuasions, but on scientific grounds, and in some instances, regretfully.  Wolfgang Smith, Ph.D., physicist and mathematician

The intelligent layman has long suspected circular reasoning in the use of rocks to date fossils and fossils to date rocks. The geologist has never bothered to think of a good reply.  J.O’Rourke in the American Journal of Science

It cannot be denied that from a strictly philosophical standpoint,
geologists are here arguing in a circle.

The succession of organisms has been determined by the study of their remains imbedded in the rocks, and the relative ages of the rocks are determined by the remains of the organisms they contain.  R H Rastall, Lecturer in Economic Geology, Cambridge University: Encyclopaedia Britannica, Vol.10 Chicago: William Benton, Publisher, 1956, p.168

That a mindless, purposeless, chance process such as natural selection, acting on the sequels of recombinant DNA or random mutation, most of which are injurious or fatal, could fabricate such complexity and organisation as the vertebrate eye, where each component part must carry out its own distinctive task in a harmoniously functioning optical unit, is inconceivable.

The absence of transitional forms between the invertebrates retina and that of the vertebrates poses another difficulty. Here there is a great gulf fixed which remains inviolate with no seeming likelihood of ever being bridged.

The total picture speaks of intelligent creative design of an infinitely high order.  H.S.Hamilton (MD) The Retina of the Eye – An Evolutionary Road Block.

Micromutations do occur, but the theory that these alone can account for evolutionary change is either falsified, or else it is an unfalsifiable, hence metaphysical theory.

I suppose that nobody will deny that it is a great misfortune if an entire branch of science becomes addicted to a false theory.
But this is what has happened in biology: …

I believe that one day the Darwinian myth will be ranked the greatest deceit in the history of science. When this happens many people will pose the question: How did this ever happen?               S Lovtrup, Darwinism: The Refutation of a Myth London:Croom Helm, p.422

How many believe in universal common descent on earth in the 21st century?

But what actually suggests a big bang occured and earth cooled down and formed a hard rocky crust before being rained on and bringing forth life from amino acids? What actually suggests that dogs and roses share common ancestry?

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

And the devil said unto him, “All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.”

Luke 4:5,6

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against YHWH, and against his anointed, saying,

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

Psalms 2:1-3

And shall not YHWH avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Luke 18:7,8

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

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

2Tim4:3,4

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of YHWH the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of wicked men.

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with YHWH as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

2Peter3:3-8

O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Favour be with thee. . .

1Tim6:20,21

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with YHWH. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

And again, YHWH knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

1Cor3:18-20

Mermaids, Sound Weapons and Government Cover-Ups | Updated and Compelling Evidence

Posted in 07 : The Ruling Controllers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/29/2012 by timenolonger

Wondering what in the underwater world is going on? So are we.

Exactly two months ago, on March 29th, 2012, in response to the original Animal Planet piece, “Mermaids: The Body Found, we here at Time No Longer posted a short article, “Mermaids, Sound Weapons and Government Cover-Ups” on our social network site, timenolonger.ning.com

With the Discovery Channel’s Sunday, May 27th re-release (?) of “Mermaids: The Body Found,” and the earnest, growing interest in the subject, we have re-posted our original article here on the blog, along with new and intriguing additional  information.

Take a good breath – we’re diving right in to the deep end of reality…

[Editor’s Note]

[Original Article – May 29th, 2012]

This Discussion is posted in response to the video added here:

[This video has since been removed from YouTube.]

As Interesting as the Story Itself are the Facts Behind It.

I have been doing searches on the people and topics surrounding the NOAA mermaid research and there is, without a doubt, a pretty successful campaign to obliterate all information of it from the internet.

First, there is the website of the NOAA scientist, Dr. Paul Robertson.

http://drpaulrobertson.com/

And the website mermaidsarealive.com “The real Evidence on Mermaids, From Dr. Paul Robertson,NOAA”

http://mermaidsarealive.com/

And the website believeinmermaids.com “Mermaids are Real, Real Evidence From Dr. Paul Robertson, NOAA”

http://believeinmermaids.com/

You will notice a similar result clicking all those links:

The only information left on the internet concerning the research of this phenomenon is the Animal Planet special itself, a Wikipedia entry calling that program a “mockumentary” ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mermaids:_The_Body_Found ) and various bloggers, youtube members or forum posters speaking on the topic.

[Update:  May 29th, 2012 – Wikipedia’s entry was modified today.  The original entry described the piece as a ‘mockumentary’ but now has been edited to contain substantially less data, and refers to the film as ‘docufiction’.

[Update:  June 1st, 2012 – Wikipedia’s “Mermaids:  The Body Found” page was created on March 26th, 2012, by “User:Reese457“.  The original post is quite different than the terse May 29th version.  View the entire Draft copy on Wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/User:Reese457

From the Draft:  “Mermaids: The Body Found is a two hour special set to air on Animal Planet in the Spring of 2012. The film follows the story of a scientific team’s investigative efforts to uncover the source behind mysterious underwater recordings and an unidentified marine body. In this film, two former National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientists Dr. Paul McCormick and Rebecca Davis tell their story on camera for the first time. After investigating mass strandings of whales, the team claimed to have recorded mysterious underwater noises coming from an unknown source. This sound resembled a sound previously recorded in 1977, called the “bloop”. They also claimed to have recovered 30% of the remains of an unknown creature from inside a great white shark which was said to possess attributes of the human body. They alleged that the marine creature had hands, not fins, and the hip structure of an upright animal. These findings, along with many others led the team to determine that this unknown animal was very closely related to humans- possibly a mermaid. To explain the possible origins of mermaids, the team explores a controversial theory called The Aquatic Ape Theory which provides an alternative explanation to human evolution.”

One of Reese457’s Draft sources includes an interesting piece of news from “livescience.com“, titled, “Mermaid Sightings Claimed in Israel“, dated for back in August 13th, 2009, which relates the following:

“Locals and tourists in the Israeli town of Kiryat Yam have been flocking to the coast in hopes of glimpsing a creature that most people believe only exist in fairy tales.

An alleged mermaid, said to resemble a cross between a fish and a young girl, only appears at sunset. It performs a few tricks for onlookers before disappearing for the night.

One of the first people to see the mermaid, Shlomo Cohen, said, “I was with friends when suddenly we saw a woman laying on the sand in a weird way. At first I thought she was just another sunbather, but when we approached she jumped into the water and disappeared. We were all in shock because we saw she had a tail.”

The sightings apparently began several months ago.”

The current Wikipedia entry for “Mermaids:  The Body Found” has been extensively edited since the re-release, with the current entry of only 10 lines.  View the article’s edit history here: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Mermaids:_The_Body_Found&limit=500&action=history.]

Many of those speaking on it [The original “Mermaids: The Body Found”] have come to the conclusion that it is “debunked” based mostly on the claim that Dr. Paul Robertson and a marine biologist by the name of Brian McCormick do not exist.

They are hard to find, but they do exist.

Here is an excerpt from a document by the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, which research is affiliated with NOAA according to the document, and lists Brian McCormick as one individual who contributed to the project.

“The NBNERR Site Profile was made possible through the help of many individuals. Notable contributors and the expertise that they provided include… Sincere thanks also goes to current and former NBNERR staff members who assisted with materials presented in this document, but who did not individually author any of the chapters. These individuals include Robert Stankelis, Kristen Van Wagner, Jennifer West, Matthew Rehor, Kimberly Botelho, Brian McCormick, Alan Beck, and especially Roger Greene…

And here is an excerpt from a document on the minutes of a Devils Lake water improvement district meeting. Listed as staff:

“STAFF: Paul Robertson, Seth Lenaerts, RARE Participant”

and affiliated with NOAA:

“Seid Creek: Green asked what is expected as the outcome on this issue. Robertson said nothing has occurred. NOAA previously said they were going to do a site inspection in March. Follow-ups have gone unanswered. Robertson asked if a letter from the Board would be effective. He explained that this is a construction site that has been filling debris above wetlands. Last year, a lot of it slid down into the wetlands. DSL has turned away from any enforcement action and the Corps never investigated. Robertson said it appears that Seid Creek is a watershed similar to Thompson Creek. Green asked for Robertson to continue making calls rather than the Board writing a letter just yet.”

Why, among all “conspiracy” related topics would this be the one that was so highly attacked?

There are certainly elements of well accepted mainstream beliefs that might be shattered with the knowledge of aquatic humanoids. The aquatic ape theory is so poorly presented that even very adamant evolutionists could not help but feel shamed to preach it and it would not suffice to halt the questions about the accepted ideas of how life came to be on Earth.

That is not the answer all by itself though. There is something else that should not be lost on the viewer amidst the more sensational news of mermaids. The weaponized “sonar” which the Navy had allegedly invented is surely a serious issue if it were publicly recognized.

I am not sure that Ibelieve this weapon is Naval or is an advanced sonar weapon. We know there are sound weapons now and we know they can be lethal. They are not just a threat to wildlife in the Oceans, they are a threat to people on land as they have the capacity to be used not just in an aquatic environment but anywhere.

The USC sections sited on the shut down sites are those pertaining to making fraudulent or fictitious claims against the government. Those so-called fictitious claims almost certainly relate to the sound weapon mentioned. They are working hard to hide this and I wonder what we can do to make it less hidden…

Sound weapons aside, for now, let’s see if we can first distill the murky waters of ‘real mermaids’…

If you haven’t seen this video yet, please view it now, and pay particular attention to the shape, size and mannerisms of the curious creatures captured herein:

Now, let’s venture even farther out into the turbulent seas of mermaid evidence with well-known, long-time master dive instructor, Jeff Leicher, as he introduces us to the fascinating Kaiwi Point Mermaid…

The following was taken from Jeff’s website, Jack’s Diving Locker:

KAILUA-KONA, HAWAII – For more than 50 years, people have reported seeing a mermaid off the coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. But the sightings were never taken seriously — until a dive-boat captain finally captured the half-woman, half-fish on film!

Dive master Jeff Leicher, 43, photographed the creature known as the “Kaiwi Point Mermaid” on April 12, 1998, as he and six other divers were exploring the ocean bottom about 20 minutes off Hawaii’s sunny Kona coast. 

“I’d heard about her before,” says Leicher, who operates Jack’s Diving Locker. “Most of us who are out in these waters regularly have heard stories. But I’d never seen her until that morning.

“We were on our way out to the point when a school of dolphins started following the boat, playing in our wake. Suddenly one of the men on the port side starts yelling and pointing.

“I couldn’t believe what I saw. There, not 10 feet from the bow, was what looked like a nude woman.

“She had long flowing hair and one of the most beautiful faces I’ve ever seen.

“But there’s no way a human being could be swimming so fast. She was keeping right up with the dolphins.

“Then she leapt into the air and my heart almost gave out on me. The entire lower half of her was covered with scales and tapered back into a huge fish tail.

“She jumped once more, then disappeared under the surface.”

All 10 people on the boat witnessed the bizarre incident. But there was another incredible surprise still ahead.

“About an hour later we arrived at the point and we were diving. I was photographing some colorful fish with my underwater camera.

“Suddenly I felt something brush against my right leg. She shot by me like a streak of lightning, then turned and came back past me, swimming the other way. I just aimed the camera and started snapping pictures.

“I kept shooting as she broke for the surface and swam away.”

Weekly World News had Leicher’s pictures analyzed by three noted photography labs. All three say the photos are genuine and have not been tampered with. 

The photos of the Kaiwi Point mermaid have been studied and authenticated by experts. Photo ©1998 Jeff Leicher

“I feel very lucky that I’m the one to finally prove to the world what people here have known for half a century,” says Leicher.

“The Kaiwi Point Mermaid is real.” 

Jeff’s Kaiwi Point Mermaid photographs appear stunningly similar to the Coral Reef Mermaids in the video.

More to come…

UPDATE: May-31-2012

What is the Goal of the Discovery Channel?

The initial release of “Mermaids, The Body Found” seemed out of place in the mainstream. We do not usually expect such sources to put forth honest information on anything which involves government secrecy. There was obviously dishonesty put forth in the form the ridiculous aquatic ape theory and the program itself was dubbed a “mockumentary” by Wikipedia.

What is Animal Planet Mocking?

Perhaps the wish that many have to see someone in the forefront be genuinely interested in disclosing some things that we have known or suspected all along. Or perhaps the mockery of real people who have investigated these things and been subsequently silenced and discredited by the establishment.

Regarding anything which is put under the label “conspiracy theory”, the media and entertainment industry has done its job in supplying the skeptics with ammunition against objective consideration of these things. “You watch too much television” is an effective termination to a conversation about UFO’s, Montauk, MKULTRA or any one of a number of other topics.

The sites which supposedly supplied information on the topic of mermaids and the sound weapons researched by the scientists are apparently owned by Discovery Channel, themselves. Why might they go this far? The easy answer might be greed, and that they conducted what amounts to a “marketing ploy”. Incongruous to that idea is the fact that we do continue to hear reports of marine mammals dying in the same way described in the program. We can find marine scientists with the names supplied in it and we are already aware of the technological potential of the US military for weapons which exceed anything called science fiction.

The sensational nature of the existence of mermaids attracted the most attention, though from my perspective it was never the most intriguing point. I was not in doubt of the existence of aquatic transgenics before Animal Plane,t and so what became more interesting to me was “What weaponry would be so beyond the belief or acceptance of the public that there would be such a strategic effort to conceal it?”

The question that remains for me is; “What grain of truth might the establishment have attempted to bury within a massively hyped web of distraction which will remain in the memories of countless people as a marketing hoax?” If you are already aware that the Powers that Be regularly play this game, you will be watching for the little loose threads of truth to follow in the future.

Witnessing 101

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/09/2011 by timenolonger

The single most important thing, we as believers, will ever do aside from accepting our Savior ourselves, is bring His message to others.

The pure and simple foundation of our redemption, the Gospel, is the weightiest subject matter in the entire body of the scriptures.

Having an eternal impact on every single being accountable to a moral standard… what we do with the Good News is ultimately the measure of what kind of servant we were for Him.

Some of us are naturally more outspoken than others, and so that difference means that we will each have our own level of comfort when it comes to witnessing to strangers… or even those we know well.

There is no need to feel disabled by an innate level of shyness, however.

Even the most introverted and non-confident believer should understand that, if nothing else, the Gospel is the one thing in which he or she can have perfect confidence.

What is, unfortunately, often mislabeled as shyness is a sense of shame… a self-consciousness which comes from a desire for personal acceptance the believer feels might be lost if they share the truth with another.

There is a great deal of danger in being this sort of believer, not only to the cause of witnessing, but the entire relationship between the individual and his or her Elohim.

For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the splendor of His Father with the sacred messengers.

– Mark 8:38

We can never excuse ourselves from the task put to us… to be the light in a dark world. Being that light not only means being able to communicate His message to others, but to do that correctly.

There is one simple difference between witnessing correctly and incorrectly, and that difference is directly tied to the motive we have for witnessing the Gospel.

Correct witnessing of the Gospel is much more about the why than the how… the reason we want to tell others the Good News, should obviously be the same reasons Yahushua wants us to tell others.

That every instance wherein we open our mouths and speak His message to another is a moment with eternal impact aught to put us in mind that we are literally becoming a part of that person’s eternal future, whatever it will be.

If we do this in any other spirit but His… a spirit of deep concern, compassion and genuine desire to see someone enter into His Kingdom… we have already failed.

The motive, too often, among believers is far more utilized like a call to battle with the lost person who is receiving the message.

It becomes a boxing match of clever words and memorized arguments, the goal of which is someone coming out “the victor”.

If the lost remain lost… no matter how cleverly you’ve stated your argument… there is no “winner”, instead you leave a lost individual embittered against the subject to a degree which will throw up road blocks in the face of the next to attempt to evangelize.

Remember, the lost don’t need to hear how well educated you are… they need to know that there is a Creator who cares for them.

The correct and incorrect reasons to witness are, very simply, compassion or pride.

The why will always mean much more than the how… but after you have witnessed His message to a variety of individuals you will quickly learn that there are various stands that the lost will take as their reasons for living a life apart from Him.

Being able to understand those positions and relate to how people came to hold them is an integral part of being genuinely concerned for the individual.

The lost must, by the very nature of their “lostness”, practice a certain level of dishonesty with themselves. This being the case… they are not able to be any more honest with you than they’ve been with themselves.

Spiritual discernment is crucial… that ability every believer has to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit can tell you much more about what makes the lost person tick than any words he or she will say.

There’s no possibility of putting every individual into a category… there will always be people who defy the usual, but there have been in my experience, very often repeated versions of certain types of unbelievers.

Here is what I’ve learned from them, which might in some way help others to understand their positions and what they need to hear (or not hear) from believers.

The Intellectual Atheist:

A case of seeming like everything they are not. These are those people who are a student of every kind of evolutionary science man has to offer.

They have spent hours reading books, taking classes and watching documentaries that bolster their faith in a theory of macro evolution.

Having done so and properly memorized every term and one-line argument that sounds intelligent… they are literally self-trained to wage verbal war with believers.

That is precisely what they have done… though you will never come across an Intellectual Atheist who will admit that all this time spent was for the sole purpose of disproving a Creator to themselves and others… that’s exactly what it is.

Atheism is a faith built of shaky ground, therefore it requires such maintenance as to seek out those who believe in a Creator and continually strengthen their own resolve by “winning” verbal wars with them.

As a believer, you will never effectively witness to these by engaging in those battles. It doesn’t matter how well you have researched the data and know that the “science” behind evolutionary theory is flawed… you will not convince them.

They have a desire in which they have invested a great deal of time, pride and desperate hope… their reasons are deeply emotional and your arguments threaten, what is to the defense mechanisms of their mind, a matter of survival.

They have a Need to not believe in Him… that need can stem from a place of having suffered terrible trauma which they can not or do not want to reconcile with the existence of a loving Creator.

It can also stem from a deep attachment to a lifestyle which is not morally sound… their resistance to Him is a resistance to accountability for sins they do not want to admit they commit.

Intellectual Atheists do not need an intellectual response… they require the knowledge that there is, in fact, a loving Creator Who is both worth living for (even if it’s difficult) and Who has promised justice to all those who cling to Him.

The Emotive Atheist:

While the Intellectual Atheist uses a necessary screen of shallow indifference to conceal his or her intense dislike of the concept of a Creator, the Emotive Atheist doesn’t bother hiding the fact that he or she despises the idea of an Almighty Elohim.

This person is outwardly angry, bitter, and tends to be a rather unpleasant person with whom to try to witness the Gospel. The arguments of Emotive Atheists normally revolve around their perceived lack of “fairness” of YHWH’s nature as presented in scripture.

These will often accuse Him of being tyrannical, violent and war-loving… they will mention His “indifference” to the suffering in the world and His general lack of compassion as they see it.

They’ll also not hesitate to call the believer a variety of insults for having faith in such a Creator.

Emotive Atheists are usually deeply hurt individuals. There is often terrible abuse in their past… not unlikely administered by their own parents or some other adult who was looked up to or trusted in their formative years.

Their raging anger is often towards that abusive parental figure and a Creator who, in their understanding, did nothing to save them from it.

Witnessing to an Emotive Atheist is normally done best in the shortest amount of time you can possibly spend on it for at least the initial attempt.

Anything which becomes a long ‘give and take’ will only allow the person to shut his or her ears and open their mouths in the familiar output of venomous hatred which is their defense.

Again… these need to understand that we follow an Elohim who is all about love and justice… even when, in our shortsightedness, we can’t see it immediately manifest.

Give them the option to come talk about it with you… but take care not to pursue.

The Pagan/ Pantheist:

Many believers might be under the impression that the worship of pagan deities is a thing of the distant past… but that couldn’t be more wrong.

Particularly in the recent decades, people have been more and more drawn to what they consider “older” faiths than Judeo-Christian beliefs.

There is a certain level of self perceived “enlightenment” in following after a “god” who is attached to romanticized notions of an ancient past. There is definitely a “fad” feeling to the modern adherents of pagan worship.

These individuals normally have very little actual knowledge of the faith they profess in their chosen deity… they generally don’t investigate what history has to say about those who, in the ancient past, gave homage to these beings.

The attraction of worshiping a pagan deity is often the sense of being able to choose among an extensive pantheon of beings to find the “right god for me”.

When that deity is chosen, even the peculiar attributes which are supposedly applied to them undergo a distinct adjustment by the whim of the pagan who chose them to further suit their own likes and dislikes.

You will find most Pagans/ Pantheists are quite unwilling to venture into the darker histories of the worship of their chosen being. Few want to admit that they bow to a creature who demanded child sacrifice or who tends to be more or less indifferent to their subjects wants and needs.

Modern Pagans know not what they worship… they simply have chosen a poor alternative solution to their very real need for a Heavenly Father.

They have done so in the most shallow and sin-friendly way available. A mystical, spiritual “experience” + a designer “god” + the ability to write their own moral code or live without one entirely.

These individuals have often been put off from Christianity by bad examples thereof. They have experienced rejection, poor teaching and a lack of understanding in churches or from representatives of Christian faith.

They want and need YHWH… but they are wholly disillusioned by how He has been presented to them.

They are not unlikely to also have attachments to morally questionable lifestyles which they are reluctant to give up or be convicted of. What they will certainly not have experienced in their choice of a deity is real love and an active interest in their lives.

What the Pagan needs to hear from us are good, sound reasons to logically conclude we serve a King above all Kings, that He is the One and the Only Being called Elohim who is a true Creator and loves His creation.

They need to understand that we, just like them, and every “Christian” they have ever met… are sin-natured beings and that our mistakes are not His.

The Unitarian/ New Age Collectivist:

I consider the Unitarian or Collectivist philosophy to be one of the more dangerous ones.This idea is founded on very ancient roots, but manifests in a very modern way to people who adhere to it.

I call this the Religion for Junior Luciferians.

Completely ignorant of why this concept exists or what its ultimate purpose in the world is, the people who believe in it are pawns of something much darker and more sinister than they could imagine.

Unitarianism might be defined as a separate entity from New Age Collectivism by many to adhere to one or the other.

Unitarianism is an “everything that equals nothing” faith. The lure of it is supposedly its wide tolerance for… whatever. Anything you decide to believe is true is fine… as long as you think everything you don’t want to believe is also fine for those who do believe it.

It means nothing except that you become tolerant of everything… except what is exclusive. The truth being, by nature, exclusive, simply means that there’s nothing you’re not allowed to believe as Unitarian… except the truth.

Collectivism is not much different… it’s just dressed up as more spiritual, sometimes adorned with the seriously weird and fantastic, but it ends in the same place.

You are subject to a concept that not just allows… but demands that you conform to a wide tolerance of everything except exclusive truth.

Those that have bought into either one of these ideas have done so in an outward attempt to be progressive, peaceful, more evolved, and unified in some idea of global brotherhood with all humanity.

The tolerance to which these ideas owe their call to arms is typically turned inside out. At the core of the matter… Unitarians and Collectivists have a desire to see the Truth snuffed out in the world.

They have a deep and even disturbing spirit-level hatred of the judgment they inevitably feel weighing on them from that Truth. As a passive-aggressive means of retaliation… they seek to become the “army of the enlightened” who would eradicate the presence of that Truth in the Earth if they could.

They are the ironic epitome of intolerance and they hold a philosophy which will be a mortal threat to true believers in the last days.

These are truly brainwashed individuals… mainstream entertainment, news, political climate and nearly anything else you can name in society has driven this message into the subconscious of the masses.

Truth is despised to the point of being called (insanely enough) non-existent in an absolute sense.

People are convinced of only relative truths, which is always more comfortable as one can dream up any “reality’ they like.

The mind of a Unitarian or Collectivist is not unlike a mind clouded by a cocktail of drugs, and in fact, you will very often find most of them on some sort of mind altering prescription drug. It is tough to deny the existence of reality you can observe without some manner of intoxication coming into play.

Perhaps some of the hardest people there are to witness to… the Unitarians/ Collectivists needs to be shown what should be readily obvious to them, but isn’t.

Very simple examples of truth they can not change or deny… very basic level logic. Not having a grasp of a basic level of reason means that they can not possibly process a higher logic which deals with spiritual things.

The aim is to not only illustrate that truth is whatever it is, regardless of our wishes… but also that ultimately the truth is Good News.

The Apathetic Agnostic:

These individuals don’t think much about spiritual matters. They are immersed in life right here and now… subject to the flesh in everything.

Because they enjoy and are deeply concerned with the temporal, the eternal is shoved to the back burner of their mind where it is only brought out on rare occasions when great adversity and loneliness descend on the individual.

It is normally just as quickly shelved again when that adversity has passed. Their general position on a Creator is “maybe there is and maybe there isn’t… but if there is, He’s certainly not that one talked about in the Bible.”

The Apathetic Agnostic doesn’t want to have to think about Him… they enjoy a far away, misty idea of going to heaven… something they hold onto for the sake of loved ones who have passed away, but not consciously for themselves.

They generally feel some level of invincibility… as if they, themselves, will never die. They normally like to live fast and destructive lifestyles; drugs, an overabundance of alcohol and promiscuous sexual encounters are not uncommon.

They are often people who either have been disillusioned by how Christianity was presented to them, or have grown up without any spiritual training whatsoever.

Eternity is always far in the unimaginable future to Apathetic Agnostics… a thing that might be out there… but they’ll never get to. The love of all things worldly that they subsequently manifest makes them a ticking time bomb of disaster…. headed for, in the best of cases, a rude awakening.

Since they are people who, for lack of a better term, are “chronologically handicapped” and believe “now = forever”, they find it difficult to concern themselves with what they see as an impediment to the enjoyment of their lives… a Creator to which they are accountable.

The Apathetic Agnostic, more than anything, needs to be made aware of how fleeting a thing it is in which they have invested all their energy.

These are those that require some fear… some sober words of truth about the consequences of ignoring even a Possibility that He exists and that He requires things of us.

The message to get across is that “someday” is some tomorrow’s yesterday and that this is not LIFE, but a preparation for it if we will have it.

The Seeking Agnostic:

Maybe one of the more fortunate groups of lost people out there… the truly Seeking Agnostics know they have a need to know spiritual truth.

These tend to be individuals who have had little to no training in spiritual matters growing up, but in whom that void has sparked a deep curiosity or even a desperate need to find out “what it’s all about”.

Though they are aimless and often dabble and experiment in a wide variety of spiritual outlets, they retain a general feeling of dissatisfaction and emptiness which causes them to keep looking.

The Seeking Agnostic is a good person for the witnessing believer to run into if they are fully prepared to answer the questions.

They have obviously not yet encountered any Christian who could answer those questions efficiently and that opportunity is a big one for us. Any truly Seeking Agnostic person will not be able to ignore the simple and true rational answers which faith in Him affords, if we are competent to provide them.

Anyone Really seeking the Real Creator of Heaven and Earth is good ground for good seed.

It’s our job to sow carefully… to be able to explain why we are all in need of salvation… why salvation had to come in the way it did, and why our acceptance and devotion to Him in truth is necessary.

We need to be able to explain why sin is the destructive agent that it is and why He hates it… where it began and when it will end.

The seeker needs to know why the void in him or her exists that is reaching out to an Elohim they never met… and that He can fill that and impart peace that resists temporary circumstance.

The “Christian” Cultist:

This category might cover a pretty broad spectrum of individuals. I do not define it, however, in terms of ‘Christians who simply don’t agree with me on one or more issue’.

I have found very few people who don’t, and I would venture to guess that most believers can say the same.

Differences of understanding what I call “secondary doctrine” are those which can not undermine salvation and do not constitute “lost individuals”.

It’s a very dangerous practice I see too often, that believers will label anyone of disparate views from theirs as essentially “lost souls”. We absolutely can’t spout idle words like that and not consider the consequences of being wrong.

The Christian Cultist is one who, in one or more way, entirely diverges from the core message of the gospel and presents some other “gospel” as being Christian.

“But even if we or a messenger from the sky preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. ” – Galatians 1:8,9

These individuals adhere to their choice of scripture… but subtract the elements with which they are not satisfied.

When this touches the core of the message… YHWH’s intervention on Earth as the physically embodied Messiah, the death of Yahushua, His bodily resurrection or His ascension which is the hope of His people, the message is entirely defiled and becomes something other than Christian.

Many examples of Christian Cult groups like Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and Christian Scientists are under the control of leadership who practice a method of leading their flock in one understanding of their faith while holding a “secret” understanding of the roots of their belief to themselves.

The leadership understands that the religion they practice is not Christian… it’s only the lay people of the congregation who are kept unaware of that fact.

Often Christian Cultists have either been raised in the faith they are in or they were drawn into it as scripturally unlearned individuals who were seeking something genuine.

Since most of these groups do not encourage reading or studying scripture itself, and offer alternate texts and teachings to the bible, the adherent is usually entirely convinced of the righteousness of his or her faith.

Witnessing to these necessitates making them aware of what actual scripture actually says.

It’s not effective to bring your favorite English translation of the bible into such an endeavor because there is no clear way of proving the superiority of one translation over another by the use of those texts alone.

One needs to go a little further and provide concordance definitions of original words which can shed light on the meaning of scripture without an argument over one translation versus another.

The Spiritist/ Occultist:

One should be well versed in spiritual warfare before treading some of the more dangerous ground of witnessing.

Though most Spiritists or Occultists whom you’re likely to come across are simply dabblers in such things… there are very some serious individuals who have made a life’s endeavor of living with one foot in the Devil’s realm.

Occult practitioners are those individuals who call upon the power and knowledge of demons and fallen angels to manipulate the world around them in whatever fashion seems to them to benefit their goals.

This is a costly practice for them… though most who begin dabbling in it take a very reckless and childish view of those consequences, assuming that they are the ones who have control of the affair.

Save for a few who have only played with such things a short time and been very fortunate… you will hardly meet an occultist who has not become possessed or attached to by an evil entity.

The great draw of spiritism is the lure of power. Being able to manipulate natural life through the use of supernatural means is the stuff of every kid’s fantasy (thanks to Disney).

Having that “edge” against the average mortal is a most attractive prospect… attractive enough to sometimes Literally sell one’s soul to the Devil.

Not every occult practitioner… and very few dabbling individuals… will claim to be calling on the devil or any negative forces.

Most would like to believe, and hence convince themselves, that they have the ability to only call upon “good” spirits… and they rarely ask themselves if spirits could convincingly lie to them.

The more adept occultists are people that the average Joe is not likely to meet… these are people in places of great power and influence, who have come by wealth and worldly favor through their arts.

If ever one does have a chance to speak to them, you might find it next to impossible to speak to a real human being through the web of demonic spirits that have attached themselves to them.

It’s advisable to precede witnessing to an Occultist with a prayer… one that binds and silences every influence apart from the Holy Spirit.

Dabbling Occultists need reasonable and very sober words that sensibly explain the horrific consequences of being utterly possessed and enslaved by an enemy who is quite capable of lying.

The adept occultist no doubt has already realized the pitfalls… but often sees no means of escape or a way to relinquish that worldly power. These need to know that we serve an Elohim that practices an amazing grace, and that there is an escape, even from the full force of hell.

All Occultists need to understand that the world is full of temporary things… and the only thing worth living for is what is eternal.

The Satanist:

The mention of “Satanists” to many believers invokes a concept of “the worst of the worst”.

Though, (depending on what kind of Satanism one is referring to) there are some practitioners who are very deeply involved in some very dark things, there are many Satanists who are no more than hedonists who have made a religion of their selfishness, and use Satan as a symbolic, not literal, figurehead.

The Satanist, of whatever ilk, is someone who holds a deep resentment for YHWH. Most Satanists of a hedonistic sort begin their venture into such a religion through some manner of traumatic or disillusioning experience which makes them mistrust or hate YHWH.

The Satanist of the more literal type is quite often born into the scene by way of a family who has gained a powerful position through their practice.

Children born to Satanic families are almost always very damaged and not unlikely have been put through an intense, lifelong ordeal of producing in them a dissociative identity.

Unfortunately many of these individuals are caught up in a life that they have only broken memories of, and very little chance of escape from without divine intervention. These are the individuals who become the unknowing patsies of black op government projects and perpetrators of mass murders.

The Hedonistic Satanist is a mere dabbler… he or she is normally a very desperate and needy soul who very much wants to believe in better things than the life they lead.

They want to know He cares… even though they might entirely deny His existence. There is a place inside them that realized YHWH exists since it is impossible to hate anyone who does not… and they require someone to be the example to them of what He is really about.

The Literal Satanist is a much more difficult individual to reach. Chances are you are dealing with someone who has parts of their psyche programmed to respond with hostility, violence or escape back to their “handlers” in the event of anyone attempting to usurp their “system”.

Be very cautious… some of these include programs which will literally “self destruct” (suicide) the person in such an event. Witnessing to these should be done with a group of faithful believers who are well trained in dealing with DID/ SRA victims.

The Luciferian:

Perhaps the most unlikely lost individual you are to meet, simply due to the secrecy and high position that is usually associated with the belief system.

These are the counterpoint to the true Satanist… they are the servants of the Evil One, who disguise themselves throughout society and religion as benevolent… even Christian.

Whereas the Satanist practices a dark art forthrightly and is either viewed by the masses as non-existent or a rare, fringe element, the Luciferian is all but unknown to most people because they appear openly in the world in seemingly humanitarian, political and civil servant positions.

There is not much to be said for a “dabbling” faction of Luciferians because this belief is normally only understood in its entirety by the highest factions of their very powerful construct.

The lower novices among Luciferians are often presented with the notion that they are worshipers of the true Elohim, and as that person advances, the lines are blurred and finally erased to expose the fact that the “Christ” that they follow is not Yahushua… but Lucifer.

Luciferians along with Satanists are the ruling controllers of this present world age… they literally have their strings attached to every facet of government, entertainment, economy, commerce and infrastructure on the planet.

The Luciferian faction is in a position to be a much greater threat than the Satanists, perhaps due to their chameleon tactics in society and even amongst their own adherents. One does not “join” to Luciferians… they are born to it. Bloodline is of extreme importance to them.

The average Luciferian has been born into a generations old position… they are born to fill a spot in the machine that will one day bring about the “great vision”… the New World Order.

They are often very assured of the righteousness of their own undertakings and have been conditioned to believe in a very warped moral standard, including a twisted perspective of who YHWH is and the power of Lucifer which they suppose to be superior.

They are likely to view the average populace as property more than humanity, and understand this as a condition which is for the “greater good”.

Luciferians are, like Satanists, often subjected to a rigorous life that produces a dissociative psyche. The parts which are used to carry out more nefarious activities are often hidden from a front alter which is oblivious of those things and can present a very normal countenance.

The same cautions apply to witnessing to a Luciferian as with a Satanist and perhaps go even further… be aware that the high connectedness of a Luciferian can mean that one who is willing to leave their position is also marked for termination and needs prayer support as well as a safe haven.

——————

We are the followers of a Messiah who is a Rock of Offense to the world. Telling people of the Good News will, more often than not, be received as anything but good news.

Sometimes those encounters can degrade quickly into hostility and an evident attitude of rejection. It’s never good to proceed past the point of clear rejection… the point of witnessing is compassion, when your message carries on past where it has been thrown aside and trampled, you are no longer doing a service of compassion.

Remember… there is an eternal impact to that rejection every time it occurs… when the answer is clearly no, we don’t want to compound the condemnation with further rejection.

We might leave it lie for the time and present it again later… allowing for a different mood or mind set. Two rejections on two occasions is normally the finale for me. After our words have been rejected… our witnessing to that individual should be confined to using our lives as examples in action.

All we can do is sow the seed… YHWH alone can give the increase. Pray He leads us to good ground.

Was There an 8th Day of Creation?

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 03/12/2011 by timenolonger

For most who read and believe scripture, the account of creation in Genesis is understood to have taken place in six days, the seventh day being that one which was set apart as a day of rest from all that YHWH made.

There are, however, some who do not believe that creation ceased on day six, but proceeded to day eight on which Adam, who is normally thought of as the first man, was created.

Those who have this view do not consider Adam and Eve to have been the first humans on Earth, but rather believe that those who were made on day six were a separate creation of human/ humanoid beings.

Often it is explained in terms of these first ones having been all the various races minus that one which was chosen to bring forth Messiah, who was Adam, created on day eight.

It would not be wise to choose either view simply on how the information impresses one at first thought.

Neither adhering to the more well accepted sixth day creation because of tradition, nor adopting the eight day view because of its novelty are good foundations for a clear answer.

Perhaps many who choose either one, having encountered both, do so on the grounds of one of those two reasons, but all interpretation should be tested thoroughly.

Support for the belief in an eighth day creation for Adam are often the following:

1. There is a clear distinction in the telling of the sixth day “humans” and the later telling of the creation of Adam. (Genesis 1 and Genesis 2)

2. The first people were created “in His image” both male and female, rather than Adam who was created alone (and androgynous) and later had a wife made for him out of his own flesh.

3. The first people were created, while Adam was “formed” out of the ground

4. There is a correlation between the first people created and the “beast of the earth” created on the sixth day.

5. The creation of the “eighth day” is evident in the pattern for all of human history – 7,000 years followed by the “eighth day” of the new creation.

6. The “breath of life” breathed into Adam is synonymous with a soul or spirit which the first created people did not have. The first people had YHWH’s likeness, the second had His spirit.

7. Cain mentioned “everyone” who found him would kill him for his crime against Abel and the only explanation for those others is that there were people created prior to Adam and Eve.

8. Cain found a wife and this wife must have been one of those of the people who had been made before Adam and Eve.

Knowing whether or not these points are a good support for the theory means addressing each one in the context of scripture, demanding that scripture make a probable, not just possible case for it.

The same is true of the conventional understanding. His word is not given in a way that requires us to guess. In the end, all correct interpretations will be those which add up to the simplest and most comprehensible answer according to literal language.

One Act or Two?

In Genesis chapter 1 there is a chronological description of creation, describing each day and what was made on that day. The first day describes the creation of the Earth, light, day and night. On the second day was the creation of the firmament of heaven. On the third day, dry land was made to appear and created plant life. On day four were the luminaries of heaven made, the stars, sun and moon. On day five were made sea creatures and birds. On day six, land animals were made, reptiles, mammals and finally people.

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind. Cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to its kind,” and it was so.

And ‘Elohiym made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.

Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

So ‘Elohiym created the man in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created them.”

– Genesis 1:24-27

The seventh day is then set apart for rest from all these things YHWH made, but after the description of the seventh day comes another telling of the creation of humans.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man whom He had formed”.

– Genesis 2:7, 8

Is this a continuation of the account proceeding in chronological order to the eighth day? There are two points which seriously hinder this being probable.

All other days described before this are done in such a precise way as to pointedly mention the beginning and ending of each “the evening and the morning” as in: “So the evening and the morning were Day One.”, also giving each day aclear number.

This is absent for an eighth day. There is no mention of an evening and a morning encompassing a certain day on which this occurred, nor is there any mention of “day eight”.

The second hindrance is an even more difficult one to justify. The proclamation of the end of the sixth day reads like this:

Thus the heavens and the earth and all (kol: whole, all, any every) the host of them were finished (kalah: end, to be finished, ceased). – Genesis 2:1

There is a clear statement that all things had been made at this point and that following this was cessation from the act of creation.

In His Image: Created or Formed?

Is there an indication that the first account describes a simultaneous “creation” of man and woman while the second describes a process of “forming” Adam alone from the clay?

The first account reads as follows:

“So ‘Elohiym created (bara: create) the man (adam) in His image, in the image of ‘Elohiym He created him, male and female He created (bara:create) them.”

– Genesis 1:27

Here there is the word “bara” which is pointed out as differing from the word used in the “forming” of Adam in Genesis 2:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground”

– Genesis 2:7

If there is a point being made here referencing a different mode of creation employed between the first and second humans, it should by all means remain consistent. It is, however, not the case.

In Genesis 4 is the account of the birth of Seth, who is born in replacement of the slain Abel. We must be assured that Seth was the son of Adam and Eve, this being repeated throughout scripture many times, not the son of an earlier creation of humans.

Following this account is the use of the word “bara” (create) in reference to Adam and Eve as well as a reference to their creation “in His image”.

“And ‘Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son and called his name Sheth, “For ‘Elohiym,” she said, “has appointed me another seed instead of ‘Hebel whom Qayin slew.”

And to Sheth, to him also there was born a son and he called his name ‘Enowsh. Then men began to call upon the name of Yahuwah.

This is the book of the generations of man (adam) in the day that ‘Elohiym created mankind.

In the likeness of ‘Elohiym He made him, male and female He created (bara) them and blessed them and called their name ‘Adam in the day when they were created.”

– Genesis 4: 25, 26, Genesis 5:1, 2

Beast of the Earth connected to First Humans?

It is often believed among those who support an 8th day creation that the description of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis is synonymous with those first humans created prior to Adam. This is also, many times, connected with the Beast of the Earth mentioned in Revelation.

Scripture gives the account of the creation of the “beast of the Earth” in Genesis like this:

“And ‘Elohiym made the beast (chay: life,living) of the earth according to its kind, cattle (behemah) according to its kind, and everything that creeps (remes:reptile) on the earth according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good. .”

– Genesis 1:25

There is perhaps little to be said of this as any connection to the creation of human or humanlike creatures. The word “chay” preceding a list of animals which were made on the sixth day could only logically be a collective statement before a more detailed list. It is not a word which is specific to any certain sort of living creature.

Where this connection is usually made, it is included within a doctrine that strongly supports the idea of a superior race and lesser peoples who are made fundamentally different by the manner of their creation.

It is often found in Christian identity and British Israelism cults and follows the ages old tradition of an idea which began in the rulership of nephilim over weaker humans.

Turned upside down, this idea is given a Christian face with which to tempt the pride of believers and alienate various ethnic groups from Christianity.

Is the Future New Heaven and Earth created on an “eighth day”?

It is said that one day is equal to a thousand years in the eyes of YHWH and though the precise days of creation are given in terms of 24 hour intervals, the whole of human history might be sensibly mapped out over a week of millennia.

It is completed, therefor, in the same time construct as the act of creation. It is theorized that if Adam was the new creation of the eighth day, his creation coincides with the new heaven and new earth to be created after the thousand year Sabbath of Messiah’s reign.

The difficulty with this idea is that the model we have been given to observe has no day eight. We are shown a seven day cycle, the last day of which is Sabbath and the following day is not day eight, but day one.

The concept of a day eight in the cycle is only applicable within an occult context where there is an emphasis on day eight being the day of the phoenix, the rebirth, the new age.

Sabbath, by it’s very nature, is special because it is the final touch on creation, it is the moment where the labors are enjoyed instead of toiled over, it is the sum reward of all things worked for.

When the millennial reign of Messiah ends, we should not expect and eternal rotation of the same patterns of time we now have. By being a new creation, even time itself will not be measurable by any present concept of it, that also, will be new. There can be no day eight in a new creation as eight proceeds from the prior series of numbers1-7 and is not, by definition, new.

Did Elohim impart His spirit to Adam but not to the first humans?

In Genesis 1:26 it is said that “man” is made in His image:

“Then ‘Elohiym said, “Let Us make mankind in Our image, according to Our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

– Genesis 1:26

The later account describes the formation of Adam and how he became a living being:

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed the man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living creature.”

– Genesis 2:7

It is believed by many who see these as separate creations that this describes the difference between those first humans and Adam. While the first received the physical likeness of their maker, the second received His Spirit, indicated by the words “breath of life”.

The phrase “breath of life” and “living soul” is understood in this belief to refer to life in a spiritual or eternal sense. The words themselves, though, do not indicate a special or eternal sort of life which was exclusively given to Adam, but rather an animating force which is applicable to all things which live and breathe.

“And Yahuwah ‘Elohiym formed (yatsar: mold, squeeze) the man (adam) of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath (n’shamah: puff, wind, breath) of life (chay:life,living) and the man (adam) became a living (chay) soul (nephesh: breathing, living creature).

Yahuwah ‘Elohiym planted a garden eastward in ‘Eden and there He put the man (adam) whom He had formed (yatsar).”

– Genesis 2:7,8

Here “chay” is used, just as it is used earlier in Genesis to describe the sort of life which animals have. The word “nephesh”, which is often translated as “soul” cannot be understood in the sense of what people normally think of as a soul. It, also, is used to describe a creature, any creature, who is living and breathing as shown here:

“So ‘Elohiym created great sea creatures and every living thing (nephesh) that moves, with which the waters abounded according to their kind, and every winged bird according to its kind, and ‘Elohiym saw that it was good.”

– Genesis 1:21

Was the “everyone” Cain was afraid of an indication of multitudes of humans made before Adam?

Cain made this well known statement when he was cursed by YHWH to become a vagabond for the murder of his brother:

“And Qayin said to Yahuwah, “My punishment is greater than I can bear!
Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground.

I shall be hidden from Your face. I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me.”

– Genesis 4:13, 14

Anyone or “every one”, as it is given in the KJV, is seen as indicating a great number of people. That indication is not literally present, but thought to implied by the way it is often used in the context of the English language.

The word is translated from “kol” which properly means, any, all or every. It does not indicate a number, either few or many, but simply describes any or every of whatever certain group is in question. It would make as much sense if Adam and Eve were the only two others as much as it would if there were multitudes of others.

Jubilees is a helpful text in considering the theory of the eighth day creation as a whole and it gives a good idea of how many people were on earth as produced through Adam and Eve at the time of this event.

Without including possible grandchildren, there would have been approximately eleven children of Adam and Eve alive at the time conservatively. All of these would perhaps feel justified in seeking due vengeance for their brother’s murder.

“And in the third week in the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Âwân.

And in the first (year) of the third jubilee, Cain slew Abel because (God) accepted the sacrifice of Abel, and did not accept the offering of Cain”

– Jubilees 4:1, 2

Where did Cain find a wife?

It is often pointed out that Cain could not have gotten a wife anywhere if there had not been “other” humans present who were not of his own parents. There is no reason to assume this, however.

The command against incest had not yet been given, and for a good reason, all who were available for marriage in the beginnings were siblings. Jubilees also offers insight to Cain’s wife:

“And Cain took ’Âwân his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.”

– Jubilees 4:9

The introduction of the theory of two creations of mankind is an important indicator of the motive, reasoning and philosophy behind it.

If it were intended as the interpretation we should receive from His word, its teaching should bear the fruit of that and be identifiable in both ancient Judaism (before Babylon) as well as the early Christian church.

Where it has sprung up, though is not in either of these places, but in the mind of a Jewish man who lived in Alexandria and who was much more a student of Greek pagan philosophy than Judaism.

Philo of Alexandria was known for his writings which attempted to meld together traditional Judaism and Greek philosophy.

It is an attempt which is not unlike the goal the Catholic church worked toward in melding together Christianity and pagan religious systems.

He interpreted nothing in scripture as literally true, but believed in a symbolic and allegoric interpretation which in essence means nothing, as no symbol is meaningful without a clear object or truth which it symbolizes.

If YHWH meant to give us riddles which only a few could understand, why then can we easily recognize the message present in His word that demonstrates how He uses simplicity and lowliness rather than worldly wisdom and high estate?

“Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength because of Your enemies that You may silence the enemy and the avenger”.

-Psalm 8:2

Philo sought to”reveal” a cryptic and hidden meaning in the bible which was not there, the same snare which continually draws believers, even today, down a path of speculation which inevitably draws ever nearer a pagan religious system and away from a truth YHWH plainly gave.

One of these cryptic meanings he revealed to his followers was the theory of an eighth day creation, stating that the first men were made in a perishable physical image of their maker but the second were created as creatures with His spirit.

The very theory that makes it’s appearance in the beliefs of many seeking Christians today originated in a man who taught concepts which were derived out of Greek Mystery Religions.

We have a Creator who has given us a perfect representation of truth in a most logical, most common sense way. and I have never known anything written to have made as much sense as His word does when read just as it reads.

It is the persistent Author of Confusion, Satan, who seeks to make what was simple into something complicated, knotted and difficult to follow. There might be no better general rule of reading His word than “if it is not said, it was not meant.”.

Evolution : The Devil’s Hoax

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/10/2010 by timenolonger

There are a few different types of evolution. Here, I am addressing Macroevolution – which is the changing of one kind of plant or animal into another kind of plant or animal.

Recently I have come across people who believe, for some reason, that evolution somehow disproves the existence of a Creator. This is clearly wrong for several reasons.

First off, evolution does not address the origins of life.

Atheistic evolutionists place their faith in the never-observed theory of abiogenesis – the theory non-life in certain conditions, given time, can produce life.

Secondly, there are many theists who claim to be Christian that believe in evolution. They call it “biogenesis” – a term coined by Dr. Francis Collins. They believe Elohim guided evolution.

So what is it about evolution then? Why is it dangerous if you can be a Christian and an evolutionist at the same time?

The problem with evolution is that it is a lie.

It is not true, and it is the backbone of the atheist world view. Without evolution atheism can’t stand.

Evolution was used in Nazi Germany to justify the crimes of Adolf Hitler to the German people, and it is used as a tool for racism today. White racists look at the tribal societies in Africa and South America and believe, because of their lack of technology, they are less evolved.

What is curious though, is that evolution is taught as a fact in schools. My tax dollars pay for children to learn the theory of evolution. Not a dime of my money goes to them learning about YHWH.

They teach this theory as if it was a fact. If it was a fact, then brilliant scientists like Dr. Wolfgang Smith, Dr. Fleishmann, and Dr. Ambrose Flemming (to name a few) would not argue it.

The truth is – the theory has many holes, and flaws, and respected scientists know this. Knowing this, they reject the theory. Let me quote Dr. Wolfgang smith…

“A growing number of respectable scientists are defecting from the evolutionist camp … moreover, for the most part these ‘experts’ have abandoned Darwinism, not on the basis of religious faith or biblical persuasions, but on scientific grounds, and in some instances, regretfully.”

This is true. Darwin himself didn’t even really buy it – as he is quoted here..

“As by this theory, innumerable transitional forms must have existed. Why do we not find them embedded in the crust of the earth? Why is not all nature in confusion of halfway species instead of being, as we see them, well-defined species?”

There are people who claim the theory of evolution was put together well before Darwin’s time. They claim the theory was put together by the devil, and given to Darwin. I don’t know.

I do know that the theory of evolution would not hold up in court. There isn’t enough evidence. There is however plenty of counter evidence, which I would be glad to provide upon request.

Evolution is useful to the devil on many levels, and that’s why it’s being pushed as fact. Bottom line, if it was such a hard fact – there would be no serious scientific opposition.

1 Enoch 104:10-13 – “idols; for all your lying and all your godlessness issue not in righteousness but in great sin. And now I know this mystery, that sinners will alter and pervert the words of righteousness in many ways, and will speak wicked words, and lie, and practice great deceits, and write books concerning their words.

But when they write down truthfully all my words in their languages, and do not change or minish ought from my words but write them all down truthfully -all that I first testified concerning them.

Then, I know another mystery, that books will be given to the righteous and the wise to become a cause of joy and uprightness and much wisdom.

And to them shall the books be given, and they shall believe in them and rejoice over them, and then shall all the righteous who have learnt therefrom all the paths of uprightness be recompensed.”

“Not one change of species into another is on record … we cannot prove that a single species has been changed.”
(Charles Darwin, My Life & Letters)

Serpentspeak : Conspiracy Theory VS Conspiracy Fact

Posted in 03 : The Dragon with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/01/2010 by timenolonger

I find it appalling and sad that it should ever be necessary to dedicate the topic of an entire article to defining simple words and concepts like “conspiracy” “fact” or “theory”, but here i am.

Thanks to media, thanks to the educational system, and thanks to the entire beastly, propagandizing machine in which we exist, multitudes of words and phrases have lost their correct definitions and exchanged them for definitions in the language of what i call “sepentspeak”.

Serpentspeak could be defined as that sneaky, mind numbing use of terms connected to emotionally charged themes and designed to make connections in people’s minds which shape their ideology and world view in skewed manner.

Political correctness could easily fall under the category of “Serpentspeak” in my definition, though it would be only one facet of it.

Taking a correct and realistic look at words like “conspiracy” and “fact” and “theory” turns on its head the emotional reaction to such words which have been drilled into the masses’ minds.

Truth and reality have the power to radically change one’s view of the way the world is, even when applied to small instances such as defining these three little terms.

So here it is… let’s cut off the snake’s head…

Conspiracy : The correct definition of a conspiracy is this – an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.

Now google the word “conspiracy” and see how many of the results you get are related to that definition or describe an event related to just that definition. What you will likely see most in your results are things which refer to conspiracy Theories.

In the mind of the average person, the word conspiracy no longer means an evil, unlawful, treacherous or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons.

That word now has taken on the definition of the word Theory instead. The moment you say the word conspiracy to most people… the immediate connection which follows is one which is defined as a Theory About a Conspiracy…

The result… in the public view, there is no longer any such thing as a conspiracy, there are only conspiracy theories, which are defined in that same public opinion as being the mental concoctions of psychologically unstable people. The concept holds the same ground as the Tooth Fairy.

Fact
: The correct definition of a fact is this – An event or thing known to have happened or existed, a truth verifiable from experience or observation.

Now take a look at some things that most people regard as fact:

Newton’s Theory of Universal Gravitation… while school children are taught the fundamentals of this principle as if it were Fact, and adults everywhere have believed in it’s absolute truth all their lives, the “laws of gravity” as defined by Newton are, indeed, a Theory and not verified at all.

Plate Tectonics… again, who doesn’t Know that the Earth’s crust has floated around the globe and it is this which has been responsible for such things as “continental drift” and earthquakes and volcanic activity? Except it is not a scientifically verified fact… it is Theory… a guess, regardless of what you’ve been taught all your life.

The Theory of Evolution… the creme of the crop of pet hoaxes, it is taught in every public school in the nation and is mandated to be part of the curriculum and yet not only is it not a fact… but it hasn’t even achieved the status of a relatively good guess, lacking any and all of even the smallest of fossil evidences, that such a thing as macro-evolution has brought human beings out of the trees and into civilized existence.

What passes for a fact in public opinion is simply anything which is taught in a school, is widely accepted as true, or seen on the evening news. Personal observation and experience and validation have nothing to do with the modern concept of a fact.

Theory: The correct definition of a theory is this – A system of rules, procedures, and assumptions used to produce a result, abstract knowledge or reasoning, a speculative or conjectural view or idea.

Assumptions and speculations are what define a theory. In the public opinion, those of us who have observed, experienced and validated data which provides solid and irrefutable evidence of certain conspiracies taking place in the world are no more than “theorists”.

It seems it is outside the realm of consideration of the majority of people to do what is necessary (which is surprisingly very little) to research and confirm or disprove that those things are facts, and not theories.

For example… HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) is not a theory, you can visit their web site right here:
+ http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/.

The CIA project MK-ULTRA which tested and perfected mind control techniques on humans, is not a theory. You can take a look at the declassified government documents right here:
+ http://www.michael-robinett.com/declass/c027.htm .

In the public opinion… Theory is whatever the establishment and the media does not mention or tell them to accept.

It may be more important than anyone realizes to comprehend and differentiate between what, in reality, comes down to fact and what comes down to theory.

People of this world put on their blinders for a whole host of reasons… they don’t think deeply on matters of truth and fiction as it is presented to them oftentimes out of fear, out of societal pressure, or as a result of stunted mental maturity brought on by years of training under the system of Serpentspeak.

When we start to force ourselves to define our language, our ideas and our actions within the parameters of logic, and outside the box of social acceptability… then we have finally given ourselves the freedom to deduce fact from fiction in all matters.

It’s no theory that there is a conspiracy, and it’s every person’s duty to themselves, to their families, their friends, their Creator… to find out how far down that rabbit hole goes.

and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free – John 8:32

The Chief Cornerstone : Choose Between The Rock & The Hard Place

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/17/2010 by timenolonger

Yahushua said to them, “Have you never read in the scriptures, ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone. This was Yahuwah’s doing and it is marvelous’ ” – Matthew 21:42

Of all the beliefs, opinions, theories and ideologies i have heard out of the mouths of all kinds of people, all over the world, i have not yet heard anyone try to tell me that we exist in a perfect world. If there is nothing else everyone can agree on, we can at least all agree that this is a problematic world, rife with suffering, injustice, violence, selfishness, greed and sadness.

Though the most optimistic philosophies might counter with pointing out the “good side of life”… love, hope, generosity and compassion… in the end, even the most optimistic mind, when perfectly honest with itself, is left feeling a deep dissatisfaction with what is greatly underestimated as the imperfection of this world.

It is pointless to imagine that one day with enough “enlightenment”… with evolutionary steps forward, with greater technology or education, people might begin to behave themselves. History is enough of a teacher  to dash all hopes of mankind spontaneously becoming some kind of super-benevolent creature who will do “right”all by themselves.

As time goes on, people grow colder, more selfish, less inclined to help a neighbor or show mercy. Wars increase, generosity decreases, emotional continence erodes into childish mind sets, morality becomes more and more subjective… and eventually a non-issue altogether. Let’s be honest… we all know it’s not right… we all know it ought to be different… it should be better… a deep void in the spirit of every person cries out for a state of genuine goodness and fulfillment, a paradise lost.

How is it that the answer could have been there all along, the remedy already secured… and there are still so many who will not (or can not?) comprehend it? We have fallen… we have lost paradise, and each individual who dwells in this earth can appropriately look in the mirror for the one to blame. The truth is, there are no good people… there are no such things as naturally righteous sinners. If one small sin was the only sin that had ever been committed anywhere, in all creation… it would have been sufficient to corrupt, entirely, all of perfection.

But the world just doesn’t see sin this way any longer… in fact, a sinful creature so hates the burden of responsibility for their own actions, that the very word “sin” has all but been stricken from the common vocabulary. We all want to believe in our own goodness… we want to believe we have what it takes… that we’re decent, that we are valuable and our existence is an asset to others. It’s wishes like those that lead the world, instead of running for a remedy to their condition…to deny they have a condition at all.

You have a Creator. That Creator is Perfect Righteousness, Perfect Justice, Perfect Truth and Perfect Love. He did not design a problematic creation, with countless flaws and inevitable suffering. He designed a perfect creation, but the law of perfect love is that by its very nature, it can not be compulsory. There must be a choice to love in order for such a thing to be genuine… and that is sadly where creatures have gone wrong. The free will choice to obey or disobey our Creator comes with consequences… you are free to make any choice you like… but the result of a bad choice is anything but without cost.

He has not been unfair in warning His creation… the wages of sin is death. Like unlearned and careless children, we who have dealt with a sin nature tend to want to do the moral equivalent of smashing our toys to pieces… stomping on the pieces… setting fire to them and then angrily wailing at our Parent for the loss we feel when we have nothing left but ashes. We do not deserve pity after all this… but astonishingly enough, He has pity for us.

If a person was fortunate enough to have the sort of friend who one day pulled him from a burning building, though it cost that friend his own life, that person would naturally and rightly feel overwhelming gratitude… perhaps some guilt and certainly a loving memory of that friend that would endure for the rest of his days. We have a Messiah who has suffered and given His life, to not just save temporary, mortal lives, but Eternal ones.

A Savior who came to pull sinners from unquenchable hellfire… the Humble, Selfless Act of a Creator Who has no obligation for humility or debt owed to any creature. So why does the world say no to Him? Why crawl and scratch and stumble our way through an existence that remains empty and pointless in spite of scrambling for fleeting moments of euphoria?

The world responds this way to Him because they are literally in a state of sin-blindness. Among one of the most unsearchable of mysteries is the ability of the sinning mind to deny and accept based upon the feelings involved in what is denied or accepted – whether or not it flies in the face of every evidence to the contrary… but i conclude that with His intervention all things are possible, because every day, the dying, wretched, unclean masses find hope and forgiveness, and the peace of knowing they have a secure future in the Incredible act of Mercy of Yahushua.

If you have never known Him… don’t let the day go by before you honestly ask yourself what the consequences of ignoring this truth will be for you if it is indeed The Truth. Will you forfeit your eternity for what you can get here and now… or will you Seek the Remedy before it’s too late?
