“For false messiahs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the chosen. “

– Matthew 24:24

None who have given their lives over to follow Messiah are unaware of the warnings that the last days of the age will be full of deception.

Among many deceptions there is expected to be one overwhelmingly believable lie which will ensnare every inhabitant of Earth who does not cling with all their might to YHWH.

Many of us have theories on how this and other attempts to mislead believers will be fulfilled. It is good to understand and discuss the possibilities, but perhaps there is a little understood danger in being too sure how a great deception will occur.

We know there is chaos in the world and that evil increases daily. It is expected that great trying adversities will be faced even by those who are faithful believers. Many will give their lives for the sake of His name.

It is a fierce and relentless spiritual war that we face and one which requires strength of resolve, whole trust in Yahushua and sharp discernment.

It is that discernment that is being sharpened now, because if a believer can not divide the truth from deception in these days, the following days will be only so much more perilous in deception.

We resist those who push the world to a new globalist order and those who carry out plans of cold and heartless destruction of human life. We resist the tyranny and oppression of rulers that despise His name and despise His image, and so it should be.

Even so, can we fall victim to our own strong desires to see something, anything in the world which seems to oppose those evils?

Are there not multitudes who flock to political candidates who claim to hold the values of freedom and life in hopes that they will be the one to take an office and remedy all these things?

Should a great leader who proclaims to fight for all things that are right and good succeed in taking a powerful position, will we have won or have we entered a new kind of deception?

It is the obvious signs of adversity and evil the world which all eyes are focused on, but it must never be forgotten that there will come false peace as well.

“His power shall be mighty but not by his own power.

He shall destroy fearfully and shall prosper and thrive.

He shall destroy the mighty and also the sacred people.

Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule and he shall exalt himself in his heart.

He shall destroy many in their prosperity.

He shall even rise against the Prince of Princes, but he shall be broken without human means.”

– Daniel 8:24,25

“And in his place shall arise a vile person to whom they will not give the honor of royalty but he shall come in peaceably and seize the kingdom by intrigue.”

– Daniel 11:21

It is not at all beyond possibility that the pseudo messiah will come seeming to bring an anti- New World Order message.

Though his goals will be globalist, he could not appeal to the world, and especially believers, with anything so unexpected or attractive as an apparent agenda which seems to be against all that we know the Beast system to be about.

He will not win any support by an evident display of his Satanic plans or with a public alliance with those who have supported his cause all along.

As it states in Daniel 8:24, he will be a destroyer of, not only the “sacred” people, but also the “mighty”.

We are aware of who is mighty in this world among its people, and these two adjectives can not be seen to be speaking of one group.

The mighty are those who now serve the very false messiah, whom it says, will destroy them.

It is of great concern to us all that we not only expect adversity, but also false alliances.

The enemy’s way has never been to deceive by those means which we know are evil, but by those means which we expect to be good.

This is a truth we will face both on a global scale, as well as each believer individually.

The deceptions ensnaring the world seek to conquer nations, states and households. The enemy will not only send false saviors before the whole world, but false shepherds into the midst of the fold to sway each according to their own desires.

Where there are those who expect a new golden age, they will see for all the world, what appears to be one.

For those who are expecting the intervention of benevolent extraterrestrials, that deception will also be provided with convincing evidence.

If there are those that are willing to follow a “Constitutional” presidential candidate, he will be presented to lead unwary sheep to their own slaughter.

Delusions come in as many forms as the desires of the flawed heart, and continually adapt to suit every new interest or expectation that can be dreamed up.

For this reason, we must never be dreamers, we must never be shaping our perception of reality by what seems nice to our base senses and wishes.

If we are willing participants in such a thing, He will allow us to choose our delusions and perish with them.

“So will I choose their delusions and bring their fears on them because, when I called, no one answered.

When I spoke they did not hear but they did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I do not delight.”

– Isaiah 66:4

Yahushua in 1 Enoch

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/02/2010 by timenolonger

More believers understand and accept 1 Enoch as scripture now than they have for perhaps over a thousand years.

Those who do, realize that among those things which have been a reason for its suppression are records which explain an angelic rebellion which changed the world forever, and a direct address to those who would be living during the tribulation.

Suppressing this evidence means depriving believers of a complete knowledge of last days prophecy, as even Yahushua Himself made that connection by saying “the last days will be like the days of Noah”.
Mat 24:37

1 Enoch has not only been rejected from canon to suppress these things though, and there are further serious implications to consider.

It perhaps does not much impact the modern day believer in Yahushua to find references to Him in 1 Enoch, but His presence in the verses of that book carries great weight.

Orthodox Judaism rejects 1 Enoch now, though Israel did not always reject the text.

Jewish believers in Yahushua’s time knew the book and understood its contents. Only after Messiah came, did Jews cease to regard the book as valid.

The reason for this becomes very obvious when reading it. 1 Enoch is a record of the oldest written prophecies in the world of Yahushua.

Not only is the book full of references to Him, but those references are nearly exact to references and descriptions of Him which can be read in the New Testament.

The 1 Enoch support for Yahushua being who He claimed He was is so overwhelming that adherents to Orthodox Judaism would logically either have to accept that it foretells of Yahushua without a doubt, or reject the text, and work hard to bury it.

Christians who reject 1 Enoch as scripture do not realize that they are rejecting the strongest and most irrefutable evidence for the legitimacy of their Savior which ever existed before His appearance on Earth.

Here I have shown the references to Yahushua in 1 Enoch and the New Testament Scriptures which correlate to them.

You will find very often that He is referred to as the Son of Man, a term of reference which most believers understand as a completely New Testament way of describing Him, yet it was written in this book much before the New Testament was recorded.

1 Enoch 45: 3-6

3 On that day Mine Elect One shall sit on the throne of glory

And shall try their works, And their places of rest shall be innumerable.

And their souls shall grow strong within them when they see Mine Elect One,

And those who have called upon My glorious name: 4 Then will I cause Mine Elect One to dwell among them.

And I will transform the heaven and make it an eternal blessing and light
5 And I will transform the earth and make it a blessing:

And I will cause Mine elect ones to dwell upon it:
But the sinners and evil-doers shall not set foot thereon.

6 For I have provided and satisfied with peace My righteous ones
And have caused them to dwell before Me:

But for the sinners there is judgement impending with Me,
So that I shall destroy them from the face of the earth.

And I heard a loud voice from the sky saying, “Behold! The tent of Yahuwah is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. Yahuwah Himself will be with them and be their ‘Eloah.

And Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold! I make all things new.”

And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.” And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.

I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things and I will be his ‘Eloah and he shall be My son.

But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, image worshippers, and all liars shall have their part in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

– Revelation 21:1-8

1 Enoch 46:1-5

1 And there I saw One who had a head of days,
And His head was white like wool,
And with Him was another being whose countenance had the appearance of a man,
And His face was full of graciousness, like one of the holy angels.
2 And I asked the angel who went with me and showed me all the hidden things, concerning that 3 Son of Man, who He

was, and whence He was, (and) why He went with the Head of Days? And he answered and said unto me:
This is the Son of Man who hath righteousness,
With whom dwelleth righteousness,
And who revealeth all the treasures of that which is hidden,

Because the Lord of Spirits hath chosen Him,
And whose lot hath the pre-eminence before the Lord of Spirits in uprightness for ever.

4 And this Son of Man whom thou hast seen
Shall raise up the kings and the mighty from their seats,
[And the strong from their thrones]
And shall loosen the reins of the strong,
And break the teeth of the sinners.

5 [And He shall put down the kings from their thrones and kingdoms]
Because they do not extol and praise Him,
Nor humbly acknowledge whence the kingdom was bestowed upon them.

His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire,

His feet like fine copper, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters.

He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword,

and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

– Revelation 1:14-16

1 Enoch 62:4-9

4 Then shall pain come upon them as on a woman in travail,
[And she has pain in bringing forth]
When her child enters the mouth of the womb,
And she has pain in bringing forth.

5 And one portion of them shall look on the other,
And they shall be terrified,
And they shall be downcast of countenance,
And pain shall seize them,
When they see that Son of Man Sitting on the throne of His glory.

For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them as labor pains upon a pregnant woman and they shall not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

– 1 Thesalonians 5:3-5

And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb!

– Revelation 6:15,16

6 And the kings and the mighty and all who possess the earth shall bless and glorify and extol Him who rules over all, who was hidden.

7 For from the beginning the Son of Man was hidden,
And the Most High preserved Him in the presence of His might,
And revealed Him to the elect.

8 And the congregation of the elect and holy shall be sown,
And all the elect shall stand before Him on that day.

9 And all the kings and the mighty and the exalted and those who rule the earth
Shall fall down before Him on their faces,
And worship and set their hope upon that Son of Man,

Therefore the ‘Eloah has also highly exalted Him and given Him a name that is above every name, that at the name of Yahushua every knee should bow, of those in the sky, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Yahushua the Anointed is Master, to the splendor of Yahuwah the Father.

– Philipians 2:9-11

1 Enoch 62:14,15

14 And the Lord of Spirits will abide over them,
And with that Son of Man shall they eat
And lie down and rise up for ever and ever.

15 And the righteous and elect shall have risen from the earth,
And ceased to be of downcast countenance.
And they shall have been clothed with garments of glory,

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes with palm branches in their hands and crying out with a loud voice saying, “Salvation to our ‘Eloah who sits on the throne and to the Lamb!”

All the messengers stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures and fell on their faces before the throne and worshipped Yahuwah saying, “Amein! Blessing and splendor and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might to our ‘Eloah forever and ever. Amein.”

Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of Yahuwah and serve Him day and night in His sanctuary. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore. The sun shall not strike them, nor any heat for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters and Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”

– Revelation 7:9-17

1 Enoch 69:26-29

26 And there was great joy amongst them,
And they blessed and glorified and extolled
Because the name of that Son of Man had been revealed unto them.

27 And He sat on the throne of His glory,
And the sum of judgement was given unto the Son of Man,
And He caused the sinners to pass away and be destroyed from off the face of the earth,
And those who have led the world astray.

28 With chains shall they be bound,
And in their assemblage-place of destruction shall they be imprisoned,
And all their works vanish from the face of the earth.

29 And from henceforth there shall be nothing corruptible;
For that Son of Man has appeared,
And has seated himself on the throne of His glory,
And all evil shall pass away before His face,
And the word of that Son of Man shall go forth

And be strong before the Lord of Spirits.

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the sky fled away and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before Yahuwah, and books were opened. And another book was opened, that is the Book of Life, and the dead were judged according to their works, by the things that were written in the books.

The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and she’owl delivered up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one according to his works. Then death and she’owl were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.

Now I saw a new sky and a new earth for the first sky and the first earth had passed away and there was no more sea. Then I, Yahuchanan, saw the sacred city, New Yeruwshalaim, coming down out of the sky from Yahuwah, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a loud voice from the sky saying, “Behold! The tent of Yahuwah is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. Yahuwah Himself will be with them and be their ‘Eloah. And Yahuwah will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

– Revelation 20:11-15, 21:1-4

1 Enoch 70:14-16

This is the Son of Man who is born unto righteousness,
And righteousness abides over Him,
And the righteousness of the Head of Days forsakes Him not.’
15 And he said unto me:
‘ He proclaims unto thee peace in the name of the world to come;
For from hence has proceeded peace since the creation of the world,
And so shall it be unto thee for ever and for ever and ever.

16 And all shall walk in His ways since righteousness never forsaketh Him:
With Him will be their dwelling-places, and with Him their heritage,
And they shall not be separated from Him for ever and ever and ever.

And so there shall be length of days with that Son of Man,
And the righteous shall have peace and an upright way
In the name of the Lord of Spirits for ever and ever.’

Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you, not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled nor let it be afraid.

– John 14:27

Praise be to YHWH who makes all truth manifest.

What “Spirits” Did Yahushua Preach To?

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/17/2010 by timenolonger

There exist certain passages in scripture which are rarely mentioned in church.

Those seeking souls who take seriously the word of their Creator will find such passages for the first time and be puzzled… wondering what they could mean in the big picture of all they have been taught about their Bibles.

They seem out of place, inconsistent, even left field when they are discovered amongst the more well known themes in which they have been educated by their pastors.

When one brings these questions to church leaders, the responses are often just as puzzling. As if one had come to their Minister asking him to excuse away some incredibly taboo subject matter, the reaction received often comes with uncomfortable looks and short answers which don’t answer much.

Out of the more discomfiting of seemingly “weird” bible passages has grown the art of “apologetics”. I dislike the term immensely, as well as the concept… apologetics… exactly what, I ask, should be necessary to apologize for in the Word of our Elohim?

As if we must do some fast talking to keep at bay the arguments of non-believers against the questions they have, with apologies to the “odd” bits and pieces in scripture which Christian leadership has tried to tip-toe around.

No… they don’t need our apologies, YHWH certainly doesn’t need us to apologize for Him – and believers need answers, not excuses.

Let there be no verse unturned, I say… whether it fits into the criteria of the faith most believers have accepted or not… there is a perfectly good reason for these strange passages to be present, and it behooves us to know what those are.

One of those mysterious little tidbits occurs in a book written by a man who decidedly pulled no punches when it came to being outright with some of the lesser known bible topics of the present day.

I have no doubt that YHWH used Peter, and his especially point blank way of stating the truth, to preserve some knowledge that people would have otherwise found much more difficult to reveal in the modern age.

Here is that most interesting passage:

“For the Anointed also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to Yahuwah, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom He also went and preached to the spirits in prison who formerly were disobedient when once Yahuwah’s patience waited in the days of Noah while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.”

– 1 Peter 3:18-20

I can guess that few people who have seriously read the bible, with an intent to understand it, have not stopped at this statement and reread it, wondering to themselves what on Earth Peter is talking about.

What spirits? What prison? Why was He preaching to them? If those curious souls then went searching for answers in Christian apologetics, they likely came up with a response which resembled one of these three:

1. It’s wholly symbolic… it’s speaking figuratively of people’s spirits being captive to sin.

2. Yahushua went to the spirits of those who died prior to Him coming so that they too might receive the gospel and come to Him.

3. Yahushua went to proclaim His victory to fallen angels, and to point out their own defeat to them.

The problem with any of these answers is that each of them spawns more questions than they answer…

1. I flatly reject calling anything in scripture symbolic that He didn’t call symbolic, especially in light of specific details mentioned here, like the time frame of the days of Noah.

If that’s incorrect, then virtually anything we want to call symbolic is up for grabs, and so is what it symbolizes.

That answer not only doesn’t answer to these verses, but puts everything in the bible in question.

2. The second answer fails in this way… there is of course, no biblical precedent for dead humans being given a second opportunity to repent past their own physical lives.

As is stated clearly in scripture… even those without the Law had a conscience to answer to which was a law in itself.

The knowledge of a future Messiah, and belief in that future fulfillment, was to the ancient world what believing on His past appearance is to the modern one.

3. The third answer at least makes sense in identifying the spirits involved.

The only group of spirits who fit the description “the spirits in prison who formerly were disobedient when once Yahuwah’s patience waited in the days of Noah while the ark was being prepared..” are the rebel Watchers.

The reference to the time frame fits them, as they were those fallen angels who were present on Earth at exactly that point in history and they were subsequently imprisoned prior to the deluge.

They are the only group of rebel angels who were imprisoned in this way… no biblical evidence can support the notion of Satan or his followers being bound from activity upon the earth at any time prior to the Millennial reign.

“And when all their sons shall be slain, when they shall see the perdition of their beloved, bind them (the Watchers) for seventy generations underneath the earth, even to the day of judgment, and of consummation, until the judgment, the effect of which will last for ever, be completed.”

– 1 Enoch 10:15

The second part of this answer does not hold up as well… the assumption that this act of preaching is a declaration of the rebel angels defeat… that it is precisely Not an act of preaching repentance, must by necessity come purely out of assumption, and not an assumption we can support.

In the plain text there is nothing referring to, implying or hinting that the described event is an act of judgment towards those rebels.

This speculation comes purely out of a stubborn refusal of Christian leadership, and Christians generally, to question objectively the possibility of a message of repentance coming to non human creatures.

Yet this is exactly what the passage in question would plainly imply…

The most notable argument which is supposed to back up the claim that certainly no preaching of the gospel occurred here is the Greek word which is used for “preach” in 1 Peter 3:18.

That word “kerysso”, they claim, is a word which is not indicative of a “good” message… but rather just a proclamation which does not imply a message of repentance unto salvation.

These same would argue that the word “euaggelizo” would be the word which would be used if a message of repentance and salvation was the idea.

The literal meaning of the word Kerysso is: to herald, proclaim, publish, proclaim gospel; while the meaning of euaggelizo is: to bring good news, bring glad tidings.

The idea that proponents of the above mentioned theory try to instill, is that Kerysso is a word which is not used in relation to ‘preaching the gospel’ or ‘witnessing a message of repentance’… that it is solely a word used in matters of declaration, which have no end effect of bringing people to salvation; while Euaggelizo is that word which is reserved for such a gospel message.

This entire base line of logic is not just a bit questionable, but indisputably wrong.

Kerysso is, in fact, used 59 times in the New Testament, and every single instance, minus one (or perhaps two, if you really push the boundaries of technicality) is contained in a verse which specifically deals with preaching the gospel unto repentance.

There is no instance of the word being used to communicate a message of damnation.

Euaggelizo is used 51 times, in similar settings.

These two words are also not by far the only two words translated into “preach” in English… the rest are as follows…

diaggello – carry a message abroad, announce, declare to assemblies

laleo – to utter, speak, tell

kataggello – announce, make known, proclaim

didaskalia – teaching, instruction, doctrine

prokerysso – to announce or proclaim beforehand

parresia – open, frank speech, unreserved speaking

dialegomai – to ponder, debate, converse

pleroo – to fill up, render complete, to carry into effect

proeuaggelizomai – to announce good news beforehand

akoe – something heard, oral instruction, report, rumor

Any of these May be used to describe preaching the gospel, though there are surely certain terms we might much more expect to be used to describe a message of judgment than kerysso among these, such as laleo or kataggello. Here are some other examples of verses where kerysso is used:

“The Spirit of Yahuwah is upon Me because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind. To set at liberty those who are oppressed.”

– Luke 4:18

From that time Yahushua began to preach and to say, “Repent! For the kingdom of the sky is at hand!”

– Matthew 4:17

And Yahushua went about all Galiyl, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.

– Matthew 4:23

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end will come.

– Matthew 24:14

Yahuchanan came immersing in the wilderness and preaching an immersion of repentance for the remission of sins.

– Mark 1:4

So they went out and preached that people should repent.

– Mark 6:12

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

– Mark 16:15

The last verse in that list is very interesting in light of this investigation of 1 Peter 3:18-20…. “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”.

A thorough examination of that might be for another discussion, yet we have to ask the obvious about it… what exactly are the “other creatures” to whom the gospel should be preached?

I have a peculiar question which I have sought to know the answer to, and have never gotten. What is the basis of resistance which believers have to the notion of non-human redemption?

The only answer forthcoming seems to be an argument of scripture… that scripture “clearly states” a negation of that possibility.

That has proven to be unfounded in examination of scripture, and so there remains some serious emotionally-based resistance toward the idea.

What would it cost believers if it were true that something besides humans could receive the message of the gospel? I would think it would cost them nothing… and in fact, I would think it would be a welcomed knowledge.

Transhumanism: Despising His Image

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 07/22/2010 by timenolonger

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

– Genesis 1:27

Of all the vast creation which YHWH has made, it is in man that He has chosen to incarnate His likeness. No greater honor could any creature receive above this, and yet it means next to nothing to most of mankind living in this generation.

It is not only that it is ignored or disbelieved, but that it is despised.

Who has taught humanity to despise the image and likeness of the Creator manifest in their own selves, and why?

Though humanity has lost understanding of what it means to have been made in the image of the Creator, the citizens of the heavens never took it so lightly.

The sons of Elohim, or angels as they are commonly known now, did not all rejoice in the creation of a race of beings made of such lowly stuff as the dirt of the Earth, which were given such honor above even those made before them.

Satan’s rebellion made a target of humanity, as he understood that to corrupt mankind was to deface the very image of the One he opposed.

“Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field that Yahuwah ‘Elohiym had made and he said to the woman, “Has ‘Elohiym indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

– Genesis 3:1

The Watchers came in with the outward justification of guiding humanity to a better direction, but in the end completed the corruption of mankind physically, which Satan had begun spiritually.

The rebellious servants of YHWH had perverted His image to reflect their own image instead.

“Then they took wives, each choosing for himself; whom they began to approach, and with whom they cohabited; teaching them sorcery (pharmacology), incantations, and the dividing of roots and trees (recombinant DNA). And the women conceiving brought forth giants…”

– 1 Enoch 7:10,11 (text in parenthesis is mine)

Humans were not just victims, though. As Eve and then Adam first had to be willing to eat of the forbidden tree, their descendants had to be willing to participate in the corruption of their own physical nature.

Humans were willing students of the forbidden sciences taught to them, and willing subjects of a hybrid breeding experiment with beings who were not of their own kind.

It would seem strange, perhaps, to imagine now why those early human beings would be so willing, who had all reason to know and treasure their unique quality of being made in His image, but such rebellion never begins by seeming like the disaster that it is.

Their lives were not easy, being cursed to work hard in laboring and toiling for the food which they ate, and that which they wore. Suffering and the promise of eventual death had come with sin, yet through suffering and toil they could mature, they could learn the benefit of obedience to YHWH and have joy in their children and peace from the promise of a future Savior.

Patience has never been a common human virtue, though.

The offer of a quicker way to an easier life was no less attractive then than now. The same impatient recklessness which makes the world believe in a pill to fix every problem was eager for a way to a stronger, less vulnerable physical existence, and convenience which would free them from the hard toil assigned to them.

By learning advanced technologies, they saw the power to reclaim the paradise only Adam and Eve had known. In allowing union with heavenly beings, they saw the power to advance humanity to a race of Earthly “gods”.

“But as the days of Noah so also will the coming of the Son of Man be”.

– Matthew 24:37

Tiger Lady Chimera : freakingnews.com

If it was announced that the human race could undergo gene therapy which would result in stronger bodies, longer, healthier lives and greater intellect, how attractive would this seem?

What man needs to wait for a future that is possibly beyond his own mortal life to see the intervention of a Creator, when the means to achieve all that He has promised might be gotten now?

That tempting possibility did not end as people hoped it would before the flood came. The technology which was introduced led only to apathy, to greed, indulgent wickedness and violence. The unnatural super beings spawned of inter-species union became tyrants and cannibals.

Now the world is eager to do it again.

It is not enough to be a creature made with the potential to reflect the image of the sovereign Elohim. Mankind wants to “evolve”.

Transhumanism is the word used in this day to speak about all that humanity can become if the greatest hopes and desires of the elite rulership is achieved.

The dream that puts faulty creatures in the place of Creator and begins to further deface the image He has placed in mankind, would use the genetic material of animals, plants, and the extra-dimensional forefathers of this goal to re-create mankind as a species.

They would even seek to introduce non-organic, mechanical components to the human body.

Christina Aguilera : Bionic

Julian Huxley, brother of Aldous who authored Brave New World, first used this word: Transhumanism. Huxley was a member of the British Eugenics Society, eugenics being the foundation of Transhumanism.

Eugenics is a science dedicated to a Darwinist philosophy applied to humanity, that the strong should thrive and evolve, while the weak are culled and eradicated.

Eugenics rests on a necessity of there being superior and inferior genetic pools in the human population. It might be very socially unacceptable to speak publicly of there being some races, ethnic or cultural groups who are inferior to the rest, yet in secrecy this is exactly what elite Eugenicists believe.

The public is guided to love the idea of Transhumanism by being persuaded that it is not a goal attached to race or ethnicity, but simply a means of bettering all of humanity. This is quite untrue.

Elite Transhumanists have no desire to “evolve” all humankind, their goal is one which seeks to advance only their own bloodlines and to leave the rest in disadvantage to them so that these unfortunate ones have no choice but to become their slaves, their lab animals and their labor force.

“The lowest strata are reproducing too fast. Therefore… they must not have too easy access to relief or hospital treatment lest the removal of the last check on natural selection should make it too easy for children to be produced or to survive; long unemployment should be a ground for sterilisation.”

– Julian Huxley

The elite, as they are wrongly called, are blood relations of one another, descending from the hybrid tyrants who ruled in result of this same Transhumanist philosophy pre-flood.

It is believed in error that Transhumanists are atheist for the most part and that the idea grew from an atheist background.

Atheists do often attach themselves to this because it is easily sold to them. With no hope of an eternal future, one who lives without YHWH sees synthetic immortality as perhaps the only eternal future possible.

At its root, Transhumanism is highly religious though. It grows directly from the heart of idolatry and the worship of false deities and false saviors. It is the false eternal life of the false Messiah offered to the elect of his apostate kingdom.

It is not a possible future hope of science that this is about, it is not an extreme and imaginative goal which science is still far from being able to achieve – This is current ability science.

The ability to recombine DNA from separate species exists now. The ability to use nanotechnology integrated into human bodies exists now. The ability to build robotics which can work in and with the human anatomy exists now.

It is not reasonable to assume there is a morality in this world which will block the progress of these things to their desired end. It is not even reasonable to assume that these things have not already been done to willing or unwilling human participants under secrecy, knowing that those who pursue this path hold no esteem for honesty,open relations with the public or concern for the well being of those they consider less than themselves.

It is very gradually pressed upon the public so that they will become numbed to the shock and the horror of such strange things being done to human subjects and when that numbness has finally taken over, then will it be brought into the light and barely be argued against at all.

How difficult will it really be to persuade a world of people who are of a nature to serve whatever seems to benefit them in the moment, whatever pushes them higher in what is esteemed by world society?

Entertainment featuring heroes who are genetically altered mutants or robotically enhanced draw great fascination from the public.

The idea of becoming better, more capable, more special is held like bait before their eyes, tempting them to dream of a reality where they become the genetically altered or robotically enhanced hero.

If they had not been convinced to despise the very image of the Creator branded in their own natural bodies, they would not be so quick to deface that image. Humanity has been deceived to hate what they are in favor of becoming, the image of demoted spiritual servants.

There is no upgrade to what it means to be human in Transhumanism, there is only the option to demean and destroy what it means to be made in the image of YHWH.

A People With Nothing To Lose

Posted in 11 : Labor Pains with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/12/2010 by timenolonger

Is there anyone left in the world who does not believe huge things are taking place in the Earth now and that there is a future ahead of even greater things? Perhaps there are many theories and many beliefs but can there be any denying that things are happening which point to some climax in human history?

Some dedicate their focus to combating a globalist agenda from a secular viewpoint, but without understanding why there even is such a plan by a powerful few, those individuals cannot realize that by no human means will that plan fail.

Some have sadly accepted the lie that the powers have subtly pushed and look for a new era of evolved humanity that will end the strife on earth. Some want no answers, out of fear they do what they can to ignore the future and try to believe all will remain as they have always known it to be.

All of these sorts of individuals have much to lose. If they have chosen badly in what they make of the present and believe of the future, they stand to lose all they have and more than they know they might have had.

For any who will not recognize the truth of what the Creator has prophesied concerning this time and the future, there is a great deal to be afraid of in the coming years. Loss of a way of life is only the beginning and loss of mortal life is not the end, ultimately it is a forfeiting of entire eternity- the real life which is to come after the testing.

Will we soon see massive extermination of human life by design, detainment and torture of people innocent of crimes, destruction of homeland, unprecedented disasters whether by His hand or by man’s.

These things are promised to occur according to the prophecies of the last days, but many will not hear it.

While those with faiths of their own making and those with no faith at all will search and never find, trust in the solutions of the enemy and never be satisfied, some few will cling to His promises through a time in which the whole world will despise them for it.

They will lose their families, their homes and their mortal lives perhaps and still accept all this in peace, knowing His Word is never void and knowing their eternity is secure.

The faithful servants of YHWH, the followers of Yahushua are those who have truly, nothing to lose. Those who will not hear are walking dead men, full of presumptuous ideas of what they know and the value of their opinion.

There is wrath that will not wait one moment past His time and still many wallow in their philosophies, unwilling to yield to what they claim can not be proven, never asking themselves what it means if all they have theorized is wrong.

All that can not supposedly be proven of the truth of Elohim according to the understanding of men are those things which there is no desire to accept.

There is no boundary more sure on the ability to accept truth than the desire not to. Not so much as the dampness of water can be proven to the one who wishes it would be dry.

What do the wishful perceptions of drowning men mean to the properties of the water they are suffocating in?

There is little time left, perhaps, to stay absorbed in the guesses and doctrines of men. There is little time left to consider the warnings conspiracy theories.

It could be this time tomorrow that massive destruction strikes your corner of the world and should that happen, how much do you stand to lose if you have been wrong all along?

The believer, if even he were wrong, would have lost nothing but those who will not hear of Messiah, will not seek Him for themselves, will not find out the truth, have more than they can imagine to lose.

The truth, it is said, sets us free, but you must want that truth.

“Whenever you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming!’ and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow you say, ‘There will be hot weather’ and there is. Hypocrites. You can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it you do not discern this time?”
– Luke 12:54-56

“Wisdom calls aloud outside. She raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city she speaks her words,

“How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scorners delight in their scorning and fools hate knowledge. Turn at my rebuke. Surely I will pour out my spirit on you. I will make my words known to you.

Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, because you disdained all my counsel and would have none of my rebuke, I also will laugh at your calamity.

I will mock when your terror comes, when your terror comes like a storm and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.

Then they will call on me but I will not answer. They will seek me diligently but they will not find me. Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of Yahuwah, they would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.

Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way and be filled to the full with their own fancies. For the turning away of the simple will slay them and the complacency of fools will destroy them.

But whoever listens to me will dwell safely and will be secure without fear of evil.”
– Proverbs 1: 20-33

“Blow the trumpet in Tsiyown and sound an alarm in My sacred mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of Yahuwah is coming. For it is at hand! A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, like the morning spread over the mountains.

A people come, great and strong, the like of whom has never been, nor will there ever be any after them, even for many successive generations. A fire devours before them and behind them a flame burns.

The land is like the Garden of ‘Eden before them and behind them a desolate wilderness. Surely nothing shall escape them. Their appearance is like the appearance of horses and like swift steeds, so they run.

With a noise like chariots, over mountaintops they leap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle array.

Before them the people writhe in pain, all faces are drained of color. They run like mighty men. They climb the wall like men of war. Every one marches in formation and they do not break ranks. They do not push one another. Every one marches in his own column.

Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down. They run to and fro in the city. They run on the wall. They climb into the houses. They enter at the windows like a thief. The earth quakes before them.

The skies tremble. The sun and moon grow dark and the stars diminish their brightness. Yahuwah gives voice before His army, for His camp is very great, for the executor of His word is strong. For the day of Yahuwah is great and very terrible. Who can endure it?

“Now therefore,” says Yahuwah, “turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.” So rend your heart and not your garments. Return to Yahuwah your ‘Eloah for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and He relents from doing harm.”
– Joel 2:1-13

Blue Beam and the Martyrs of the NWO

Posted in 12 : Technocracy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/31/2010 by timenolonger

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.”
– Matthew 24:9

“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved.”
– 2 Thessalonians 2:9,10

I would like to give a little attention here to some who have been martyred in their mission to do the right thing in the face of opposition which is powerful, murderous and above (or below) the law. May we each have courage like this as the world continues to fade into the black night of a reigning Beast technocracy.

Serge Monast, a Canadian journalist born in 1945 is known for having brought into the light of day, classified UN information regarding a NASA project named “Blue Beam”.

If not for this man’s dedication to the truth, almost nothing would be known in the public sphere of this covert operation which bears serious potential to be one of the greatest tools behind the “great delusion” which is to come.

If you have never read Serge’s publications on Project Blue Beam…they come highly recommended.
+ educate-yourself.org

As a result of the sensitive information which he was making known to the public, Serge realized that his life was in danger, had been threatened on many occasions and voiced his opinion that he did not expect to survive.

It was in fact, a pattern which was timed to each new release of information he publicized that was an ongoing string of tragic events for himself and his family.

He and his family were faithful believers and they home schooled their children, perhaps knowing all too well the indoctrination facilities that public schools are.

Serge and his 7 year old son were detained by authorities after just such a release of information… allegedly to protect the boy from instability at home.

Serge’s son was placed in foster care and he was released from custody. His daughter was also taken with claims that the children were being abused by not being allowed to attend public school… his children were never returned.

In the aftermath of his arrest, the following day in his home, December 5th, 1996… Serge Monast suffered a massive coronary which ended his life in his wife’s arms.

It is easy to see this as an accident and that is precisely how it is meant to seem, but understanding a little bit about what Blue Beam is and what it entails might put that assumption into a different perspective.

Blue Beam technology incorporates transmitters which broadcast at the same frequency as the human body’s nervous system.

Along with various other manipulations possible, both mentally and physically, this type of device is able to alter the heart rate of a targeted individual, and it is entirely possible to cause heart attacks with it.

It is solidly within the usual MO of the PTB to cause the retaliatory death of an individual using the very means which they opposed.

Serge wrote this two years before his death:

“When I decided to release some tiny parts of information concerning the NASA BLUE BEAM PROJECT, I was not sure if i would survive my stand against the New World Order’s most sophisticated project, set up to bring to their knees all men of all nations, cultures and religions. But now, following my own Christian conscience and my real and deep love for all my unknown brothers and sisters in America and in other parts of the world, i freely accept the loss of my life, if that must be the case, for the Truth – for Jesus Christ, by releasing for the first time ever, the four major steps of the Satanic Blue Beam Project.”

The last word on Serge’s widow is that now been bereft of her entire family, she is in poor health and is struggling financially.

Though i am not aware of any fund which is set up to help this woman, i believe she would have quite a lot of support from some of us who understand the circumstances she has been victim of. It’s my hope someone has or will think to help her in this way.

The NASA Blue Beam Project might be one of the most heavily guarded secrets of the NWO. It is difficult to locate publicly accessible information about it and Serge’s death has not been the only death connected to it.

Blogger and researcher Rik Clay also met a strange and untimely end. Rik was a thorough researcher into New Age globalism, Blue Beam and other aspects of the NWO, having conducted a number of interviews with Red Ice Creations.

He began suffering from adrenal exhaustion following some his more eye-opening revelations… his blog was abruptly removed and then he was reported to have committed suicide, though it would seem he was not in a suicidal mind set at the time.
More about Rik Clay here + rikclayfoundation.org

Phil Schneider is another unfortunate victim of the same circumstances. A Structural engineer who once worked for the government in the construction of underground bases, and was particularly known for having worked at the Dulce base where the Blue Beam Project is headquartered.

Having spoken out about a multitude of things he witnessed, from a human / non-human fire fight at the base to various government sanctioned murders and CIA drug running.

He was found dead in his apartment, having been deceased at the time of discover some 5 to 7 days. The official report then was that he had had a stroke, it came out later that it was possibly suicide. Below is a statement from Phil’s ex wife:

“My name is Cynthia Drayer, I live in Portland, Oregon, and I am the
ex-wife of Philip Schneider. Philip and I met in 1986, were married in
Carson City, Nevada, and had a daughter, Marie, in 1987. We were
divorced in 1990 and lived in separate residences. Philip lived in an apartment complex in Wilsonville, Oregon.

On 1/17/1996 I received a call that Philip was dead in his apartment and apparently had died up to a week before his body was discovered. At the time of the removal of his body, his cause of death was by a stroke. When I went to the funeral home I had feelings of discomfort about his death.

I asked to view the body, but due to decomposition, the funeral director suggested otherwise. I wanted to be sure, in my own mind,. that Philip had not died under “unnatural causes”.

For the last two years of his life, Philip had been on the “lecture tour” throughout the United States, talking out about government cover ups. You name it, he was talking about it: Aliens (treaties and abductions), UFO’s, the One World Government, Black Budgets, Underground Mountain Bases, CIA involvement in civilian murders and drugs, Stealth technology, the Philadelphia Experiment, Operation Crossroads (Bikini Island A-bomb experiments), Dulce Fire Fight, the Oklahoma bombing, the World Trade Center bombing, missing children, Gunderson Freight Cars, the opening of concentration camps and Marshal Law/UN involvement, man-made viruses and earthquakes, etc.etc.

A day later, I received a call from the Clackamas County Detectives,
that the funeral director had found “something” around Philip’s neck.

An autopsy was performed at the Multnomah County Medical Examiner’s
office (in Portland, Oregon) by Dr. Gunson, and she determined that
Philip had committed suicide by wrapping a rubber catheter hose three
times around his neck, and half-knotting it in front.

There are several reasons why I believe that Philip did not commit suicide, but was murdered:

1. There was no suicide note.

2. Philip always told his friends and relatives, that if he ever “committed suicide” you would know that he had been murdered.

3. From a number of sources, including his taped lectures (video and audio), and statements to his friends, and the borrowing of a 9mm gun, Philip felt that he and his family were being threatened and were in danger because of his lectures.

4. All of his lecture materials, alien metals, higher math books, photographs of UFO’s coming out of the Operation Crossroad A-Bomb, notes for his book on the alien agenda, were missing. (Everything else in the apartment was still there, including gold coins, wallet with hundreds of dollars, jewelry, mineral specimens, etc.)

5. No coroner ever came out to his apartment after his body was found (against Oregon Law) – and a police investigation never took under consideration that items were missing from his apartment – it was considered a suicide, plain and simple

6. The medical examiner took blood and urine samples at the autopsy but REFUSED to analyze them, saying that the county would not
“waste their money on a suicide”.

Although I was assured that the samples would be kept for 12 months, when I asked for these samples to be sent to an independent lab 11 months later they were “missing” and presumed “destroyed”.

7. Philip had missing fingers on his left hand, and limited motion in his shoulders. I believe that it was physically impossible for Philip to have held the rubber hose in his left hand with missing fingers and then wrap the hose three times with shoulders that had limited motion.

In order to end up where his body was, he had to sit on the edge of his bed, wrap the hose around his neck, slowly and painfully strangle to death, and fallen head first into a wheel chair.

8. Philip was an expert in chemicals and his own medical needs. He had multiple pills at hand that could have ended his life quickly and painlessly. He also had a 9mm gun that he had borrowed to protect himself. Why strangle himself in such an unusual manner?

9. Philip was very religious, and did not believe in suicide. He had intense chronic pain all of the time I knew him. At the time of his death, he was on disability, had a housekeeper, and had cancer. The operation to help him with his back pain did not alleviate the pain and he had brittle bone syndrome (osteoporosis). He struggled every day, not to die, but to live.

He felt that these lectures he gave was making a difference, and was looking forward to giving more. In fact he was scheduled for another lecture tour that started 1/16/96 in Tampa, Florida. He had just found a friend who was going to help him write a book about the New World Order, and he was enjoying his time with his daughter.

10. Philip was undergoing “injections” of “Beta Serone” every week in an experiment to stop his multiple sclerosis. After his death I contacted the only agency that conducted these experiments to obtain his medical record (OHSU).

They had never heard of him, and he was not a part of their experiments. This would suggest people unknown were injecting him on a weekly basis with an unknown substance. He often times called me after these “shots” to tell me that he was too sick for his daughter to come and visit.

I believe that the shots that Philip thought were being given to him to help him back to health, were actually being given to him to make him sick.

11. Philip was seen with an “unknown blonde haired woman” for several months before his death. Several times this same individual was seen or talked about and her mysterious presence only leads one to wonder if she had anything to do with his “suicide”.

12. Several people with psychic abilities have indicated that Philip did not commit suicide, but was murdered some say by 5 people: 4 men and 1 woman, 4 directly and one by taking out a “contract”.”

The obvious government resistance against allowing Blue Beam information to reach the public has extended even. possibly, to cyberspace.

The Wikipedia entry which once existed for Project Blue Beam has been deleted. Of the information which remains accessible on this subject, nearly all of it comes from Serge Monast’s original revelations. I believe he had some very damaging evidence about this secretive project as this is the summation of what he revealed:

“The infamous NASA [National Aeronautics and Space Administration] Blue Beam Project has four different steps in order to implement the new age religion with the Antichrist at its head. We must remember that the new age religion is the very foundation for the new world government, without which religion the dictatorship of the new world order is completely impossible. I’ll repeat that: Without a universal belief in the new age religion, the success of the new world order will be impossible! That is why the Blue Beam Project is so important to them, but has been so well hidden until now.

Engineered Earthquakes & Hoaxed ‘Discoveries’
Hoaxed ‘Discoveries’
The Big Space Show in the Sky
Artificial Thought & Communication”

I believe also, though, that there is more to this project than even what Serge had discovered.

From his reports we read that the Blue Beam project is geared toward a staged alien invasion using holographs and mind control… this being the case, the world of entertainment and media has been attempting to condition people to expect and fear a hostile alien invasion, which when it occurs will then set the stage for a false savior figure.

I would say that this is certainly half the plan, but i would also suggest that there are actual non-human entities involved at the highest levels of society… entities which aren’t the little grey guys or lizard people… but fallen angelic beings.

It is my expectation that they do plan to stage a hostile “alien” invasion using Blue Beam, and that they intend to use hostile appearing images of both “aliens’ and craft… and that in the aftermath of this we may very well see the “real aliens”… fallen angels, staging a “heavenly rescue” of terrified earthlings – thereby setting the precedent for not only a false rapture situation, but a one world order under Satanic leadership.

Stay Sober, Stay Vigilant, be prepared for the surprises and stand firm in Yahushua… no matter what.

The Cedar Who Fell

Posted in 04 : The Phoenix with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 05/21/2010 by timenolonger

There is an interesting section in Ezekiel, chapter 31 on which I have never heard much comment from pastors, or any other believers of His Word.

Though it is perhaps easy to read it as being addressed to a nation, there are certain themes within it which would never apply to any nation or ordinary ruler.

Here we see Egypt’s Pharaoh being warned in a comparison of himself to some manner of great and wicked leader, which is identified in KJV and other English translations as “the Assyrian”.

The word Assyrian in Old Testament scripture is translated from the word “Ashshur”, which is spelled : aleph, shiyn, reysh. This word can refer to the second son of Shem, or his descendants, or their country; but another word exists which is worth noticing for its similarity and possible confusion with the word Ashshur.

The word “ashur” which is also spelled : aleph, shiyn, reysh is used as a shortened form of a longer word – te’ ashshuwr – that is the name of a specific type of “box” cedar tree.

The difference in the words Ashshur and ashur is only noted in a vowel point, and it must be remembered that vowel points are not original to the language, and where they make the difference between a translation which makes sense and one which makes less, it is not always the better option to trust the given translation as the best choice.

A reason that it should be questioned that Ashshur should be the correct choice is in the next few words – and supported further by the rest of the text of the chapter.

“Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.” – Ezekiel 31:3

It is here plainly said that a Cedar is the object of reference. Might this not make sense if the translation were this instead:

“Behold, the Box Tree was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.”

The symbolism of the cedars of Lebanon is very prominent in scripture.

“And Jehoash the king of Israel sent to Amaziah king of Judah, saying, The thistle that was in Lebanon sent to the cedar that was in Lebanon, saying, Give thy daughter to my son to wife: and there passed by a wild beast that was in Lebanon, and trode down the thistle.” – 2 Kings 14:9

“Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down. There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled. ” – Zechariah 11:1-3

“The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars; yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon. ” – Psalm 29:5

“For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,” – Isaiah 2:12,13

The idea which follows the symbol of a cedar of Lebanon is pride, strength and rulership, and perhaps more that that. The first time tall, proud trees are mentioned in historical writings of non-canon scripture they appear in the book of giants, which exists now in fragments from the dead sea scrolls.

“In the Dead Sea text entitled the Book of Giants, the Nephilim sons of the fallen angel Shemyaza, named as ‘AhyÄ and ‘OhyÄ, experience dream-visions in which they visit a world-garden and see 200 trees being felled by heavenly angels. Not understanding the purpose of this allegory they put the subject to the Nephilim council who appoint one of their number, Mahawai, to go on their behalf to consult Enoch, who now resides in an earthly paradise. To this end Mahawai then:

[… rose up into the air] like the whirlwinds, and flew with the help of his hands like [winged] eagle [… over] the cultivated lands and crossed Solitude, the great desert, […]. And he caught sight of Enoch and he called to him…

Enoch explains that the 200 trees represent the 200 Watchers, while the felling of their trunks signifies their destruction in a coming conflagration and deluge.” piney.com

Mt Hermon, the place of descent of those 200 Watchers, sits on the border between Lebanon and Israel, so that it is evident why a cedar of Lebanon is a very likely symbol for a fallen Watcher.

The rest of this chapter begins to look less like a comparison of pharoah with another great human ruler, and more like a historic comparison to those who ruled the world before the deluge.

“The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little rivers unto all the trees of the field.” – Ezekiel 31:4

In 1 Enoch it is described as the fate of the women who became wives of the Watchers that they should be, after their mortal deaths, “Sirens” roaming the earth, and their children became “demons”.

Sirens are understood in legends around the world to be female spirits connected always with water. Perhaps here we see a reference to these human women that were the fuel that fed the reign of these fallen angels on Earth.

“Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth. All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations. Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters. ” – Ezekiel 31:5-7

This describes a world government, much like one that will exist in the near future as it is foretold by Messiah that the last days should be just as the days of Noah were.

“The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty. I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him. Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height; ” – Ezekiel 31: 8-10

There becomes little doubt in this section that what is being referred to is not a human ruler or a nation, by reference to those in the “garden of Elohim (God)” and “Eden” – which obviously has had no human inhabitant since Adam and Eve.

“I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness. And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him. ” – Ezekiel 31:11,12

“the mighty one” is translated from “el” which is used to refer to deity, whether the True Creator or a falsely worshiped being. It should be remembered that the Watchers who rebelled did so much after Satan had led his own rebellion, and Satan was, and is still, the primary ruler over the dominion of sin.

These two factions of rebels have not always cooperated with one another, but in the end Satan is given dominion to rule over all who stand in transgression against the Creator.

When the Watchers were imprisoned just before the flood, the world under their rule became a legend and a myth until this day. People have left that history behind them in a past they do not recall.

“Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches: To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit. Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.” – Ezekiel 31:13-15

The fowls and beasts can be likened to those who have retained the occult knowledge which originated in those pre-flood days, and who strive toward a resurrection of that age, the ruling families and secret societies of the present world.

The ruin to which the rebel watchers came is a reminder before the heavenly host to beware of entertaining pride and transgression.

The rebels have had their bodies which existed in the physical world destroyed, and they have been thrown into subterranean prisons, dying as mankind does, a form of mortal death.

It is mentioned in 1 Enoch how some of the holy host mourned the downfall of their brethren.

“I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth. They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen. To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.” – Ezekiel 31:16-18

The whole world was changed with the end of the Watchers reign and the flood. It would begin over again, with a small remnant.

The phrase “shall be comforted” comes from the word “nacham”, which means to sigh or be sorry for, to pity or repent. These are the whole host of rebel Watchers, “they that were his arm” mourning the defeat of their leader.

Perhaps all should do their own research, and yet this is a chapter which i believe has relevance in this day, and which is worthy of taking notice.
