Has your life recently grown more difficult? This may be theory right now.. but based upon the mounting evidence for it.. I’d say it could become law soon.

As believers we are all, so to speak, on ‘Easy Street’.. we have eternal life in our Savior.. and that makes our lives much easier than the lives of the lost.. we have the liberation in Messiah that slaves to sin have yet to know. We pray those bound to sin will come to know, sooner than later, that redeeming freedom from death.

Believers will have tribulation.. that is fact.. and we are to count it all joy.. and that can be difficult.. but as for going through daily life.. we have it easy.

We are protected by the saving blood and resurrection of Yahushua our Messiah.. and we have been empowered by His Holy Spirit to know and speak truth in love.

The path believers have taken is described in scripture as narrow, and hard to find.. and we know this is true.. the world is filled with gaping invitations to run the road to ruin.. and charting a path through this earthly tangle of sin is not easy.. the path to salvation is narrow, but it’s there, waiting and open for travelers.. though walking it takes Divine intervention.

But once we as believers have taken the high road of salvation.. we are free in our Savior.. and that liberty in Him, we all know, has made our lives much easier. It’s the times, i think we’d all agree, which have grown harder.. these are evil days.. full of turmoil, destruction and general uneasiness.. lots of little things in people’s lives have begun to mount.. and that mountain, for many, has begun to crumble.

Through our faith in Yahushua we could fearlessly enter the fiery furnace or calmly sleep with the lions.. we could face any unwarranted attack from the enemy with firm resolve in simply knowing and accepting that we, as believers, are protected. But we are not perfect.. and, even if we do not willfully continue in it, we will fall into sin at times.. and those times, now more than ever in our lives, are causes for concern.

It’s not the sin that should be more concerning than before.. it’s the ramifications of sin committed in a world where the enemy has us surrounded, and is closing in on our camp.

In believers’ lives, the effects of sin are becoming more dangerous than ever.. and I’d imagine these dark days have found many of us re-assessing our situations a lot more frequently than we had before.

We all have seen the tightening of the belts holding up the financial industry.. companies pursuing even small credit lapses.. natural gas companies cutting people off in winter when their bills are barely two months behind.. merchants instituting a maze of individually-identifying red tape before they give out a refund.

Of course, it hasn’t stopped there.. amidst the world-wide disaster strikes and skyrocketing levels of geo-political unrest.. the industry of government has feverishly begun sewing together all its loose ends as well.. closing off the exits on every possible avenue of freedom.. creating invisible-barred virtual prisons where people are unwittingly put to hard labor in mental slavery camps which appear to be ‘just life’.

I think Bob Marley put it well with his words “the Babylon system is a vampire.. sucking the blood of the sufferers..”

And now, and more each day, in this world where there is a major earthquake, flood, fire or something weird practically each week – we as believers have got to stand ready in our lives.

My personal life re-assessments have found me ready for the lions of the den – but unprepared for the mice of the field.

Bush (the band, of course) recorded a song with the line “It’s the little things that kill.. tearing at my brain again.. little things that kill..” and i think that now those words have rung most true. Our little sins.. like neglect.. like over-confidence.. they are the mice in the field.. and when they find us, they begin to gnaw.. not just at the visible tethers of our physical lives.. but they eat away at our unseen spiritual strength as well.

Our world is getting more evil, and everything wrong we do seems to carry much more weight than it did before.. and we know the only solution is to seek the counsel and instruction of our Savior. The days of dancing down the street singing are behind us perhaps, for now. The road is rocky and full of pitfalls.. and getting worse, most especially when we are at fault through those so-called ‘little’ sins. This is my theory, but of believers, i dare say, there’d be few who reject it.

Friends.. get your houses in order.. tie up the seams you have turned your head against in the past.. love each other without portion, and above all.. stay in our Master’s company.. read His word.. do His will.. be as close to without reproach as possible.. live like today is your last without living like today is the only day.

Our daily futures certainly don’t need to be mapped to nausea, but we do need a ‘game plan’.. because the game is on, it seems (if it’s not.. then we are even worse off than we think) – and the penalties for crossing the lines have gotten harsher.. and will continue.. until we, the believers on Yahushua, are openly the enemies.. and then it will be the worst.

Hard times on Easy Street.. I think we are probably there.. and I think if that is the case.. then what we will find on farther up the road is going to be times even harder.. until there is time no longer.. we believers are being tested.. let Yahushua bring us all out shining like gold.. turn every stone in your life.. consider sin – and run from it like it’s the plague.

Take care of the little things in life that can be controlled.. because the rest of the things we can’t control are hurtling toward us at increasing size and speed.. escape the avalanche with the simple and protective faith you have in our Savior.. do His will to the fullest daily.. He has said He will never leave us nor forsake us, and we know that to be true.

Don’t forget the little things.. these are dark days and hard, but Yahushua will surely bring us through them.

Remember Joel:

{1:1} The word of Yahuwah that came to Yo’el the son of Pethuw’el.

{2} Hear this, you elders, and give ear, all you inhabitants of the land! Has this happened in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?

{3} Tell your sons about it, your sons their sons, and their sons another generation.

{4} What the chewing locust left, the swarming locust has eaten. What the swarming locust left, the crawling locust has eaten. And what the crawling locust left, the consuming locust has eaten.

{5} Awake, you drunkards, and weep. And wail, all you drinkers of wine, because of the new wine, for it has been cut off from your mouth.

{6} For a nation has come up against My land, strong, and without number. His teeth the teeth of a lion and he has the fangs of a fierce lion.

{7} He has laid waste My vine and ruined My fig tree. He has stripped it bare and thrown it away. Its branches are made white.

{8} Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the husband of her youth.

{9} The grain offering and the drink offering have been cut off from the house of Yahuwah. The temple officials mourn, who minister to Yahuwah.

{10} The field is wasted, the land mourns, for the grain is ruined, the new wine is dried up, the oil fails.

{11} Be ashamed, you farmers! Wail, you vinedressers, for the wheat and the barley, because the harvest of the field has perished.

{12} The vine has dried up and the fig tree has withered. The pomegranate tree, the palm tree also,and the apple tree. All the trees of the field are withered. Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.

{13} Gird yourselves and lament, you temple officials. Wail, you who minister before the altar. Come! Lie all night in sackcloth, you who minister to my ‘Eloah, for the grain offering and the drink offering are withheld from the house of your ‘Eloah.

{14} Consecrate a fast. Call a sacred assembly. Gather the elders, all the inhabitants of the land to the house of Yahuwah your ‘Eloah, and cry out to Yahuwah.

{15} Alas for the day! For the day of Yahuwah is at hand. It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.

{16} Is not the food cut off before our eyes, joy and gladness from the house of our ‘Eloah?

{17} The seed shrivels under the clods, storehouses are in shambles, barns are broken down, for the grain has withered.

{18} How the animals groan! The herds of cattle are restless because they have no pasture. Even the flocks of sheep suffer punishment.

{19} O Yahuwah, to You I cry out, for fire hasdevoured the open pastures and a flame has burned all the trees of the field.

{20} The beasts of the field also cry out to You, for the water brooks are dried up and fire has devoured the open pastures.

{2:1}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!

{2} 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.

{3} 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.

{4} Their appearance is like the appearance of horses and like swift steeds, so they run.

{5} With a noise like chariots, over mountaintops theyleap, like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble, like a strong people set in battle array.

{6} Before them the people writhe in pain, all faces are drained of color.

{7} They run like mighty men. They climb the wall like men of war. Every one marches in formation and they do not break ranks.

{8} They do not push one another. Every one marches in his own column. Though they lunge between the weapons, they are not cut down.

{9} 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.

{10} The earth quakes before them. The skies tremble. The sun and moon grow dark and the stars diminish their brightness.

{11} 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?

{12} “Now therefore,” says Yahuwah, “turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”

{13} 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.

{14} Who knows if He will turn and relent and leave a blessing behind Him, a grain offering and a drink offering for Yahuwah your ‘Eloah?

{15} Blow the trumpet in Tsiyown, consecrate a fast, call a sacred assembly,

{16} gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the sons and nursing babes. Let the bridegroom go out from his chamber and the bride from her dressing room.

{17} Let the temple officials, who minister to Yahuwah, weep between the porch and the altar. Let them say, “Spare Your people, O Yahuwah, and do not give Your heritage to reproach that the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their ‘Eloah?'”

{18} Then Yahuwah will be zealous for His land and pity His people.

{19} Yahuwah will answer and say to His people, “Behold! I will send you grain and new wine and oil and you will be satisfied by them. I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.

{20} But I will remove far from you the northern army, and will drive him away into a barren and desolate land, with his face toward the eastern sea and his back toward the western sea. His stench will come up and his foul odor will rise because he has done monstrous things.”

{21} Fear not, O land! Be glad and rejoice, for Yahuwah has done marvelous things!

{22} Do not be afraid, you beasts of the field, for the open pastures are springing up and the tree bears its fruit. The fig tree and the vine yield their strength.

{23} Be glad then, you sons of Tsiyown, and rejoice in Yahuwah your ‘Eloah, for He has given you the autumn rain faithfully and He will cause the rain to come down for you. The autumn rain and the spring rain in the first month.

{24} The threshing floors shall be full of wheat and the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil.

{25} So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, and the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.

{26} You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of Yahuwah your ‘Eloah Who has dealt wondrously with you, and My people shall never be put to shame.

{27} Then you shall know that I am in the midst of Yisra’el. I am Yahuwah your ‘Eloah and there is no other. My people shall never be put to shame,

{28} and it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.

{29} And also on menservants and on maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

{30} And I will show wonders in the sky and in the earth. Blood and fire and pillars of smoke!

{31} The sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yahuwah.

{32} And it shall come to pass whoever calls on the name of Yahuwah shall be saved. For in Mount Tsiyown and in Yeruwshalaim there shall be deliverance, as Yahuwah has said, among the remnant whom Yahuwah calls.

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.

CPS Legally Kidnapping Your Children

Posted in 07 : The Ruling Controllers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 10/28/2010 by timenolonger

The American people are conditioned to trust government agencies of all types, regardless of what practices and lack of oversight might be involved. Society is not encouraged to be the watchdogs over state meddling in the people’s affairs – which they should really be.

Of all the blindly trusted government action in their lives which people are least likely to question, Child Protective Services probably tops the list.

The name of the agency itself strikes right to the heart of a serious reactionary trigger in people’s minds. The safety of children is a normal adult human concern. Protecting helpless children from all forms of abuse is a natural and good instinct given by the Creator which, in spite of the depravity of the world, still burns strong in most of humanity.

Unfortunately, it is also a target of the enemy to twist and pervert to their advantage, removing what is a matter of common sense defense of children, in exchange for the nonsensical notion that the state, and not parents, are what is best for them.

Little known to most Americans, Child Protective Services is not in the business of being the non-profit benefactors of abused children. They do indeed collect profits from each child which is taken from their family.

The state receives federal bounty payment on each child adopted out through CPS. What this agency truly constitutes is a legal kidnapping ring, if legalities are to be defined by whatever the government can get away with.

We can not even take solace in assuming that those children adopted out go to good families… the CPS has, on numerous occasions, been directly linked with handing over illegally obtained children to international child sex slavery operations.

Those that end up in foster care are very often forced onto regimens of psychiatric medication which will irreversibly impair their brain development, all without the consent of biological parents who, in many cases, have done nothing whatsoever to justify the kidnapping of their kids.

It should come as no surprise that the controllers of the nation… and the world’s affairs have an agenda to take apart the family unit entirely.

As long as the family unit survives, the parents remain the primary educators of their children… this in turn means that those ideals which are passed down over generations, which would oppose the ideologies of a globalist agenda, can persist.

The only true way to convert a population entirely to a “New World Order” of thinking is to begin at the cradle, programming young minds to perceive the state as the parental figure of consequence.

All teaching must come from the state… the ideologies which are held by the “elite” must be those which are instilled at the most formative moments of a child’s life.

Likewise, parents must be taught that their authority over their own children is second to that of the state and that it is not a biological right, but simply a privilege, much like a driver’s license.

One has only to look at what constitutes a reason to tear someone’s child away from them to really begin to see what this supposed benevolent agency is about.

Amongst the thousands and thousands of cases anyone can easily pull up of bereft parents who have had their children stolen from them under extremely questionable circumstances, comes the recent and most disturbing tale of John Irish and his fiance Stephanie Taylor.

John Irish is a member of or affiliated with what is known as the Oath Keepers. The Oath Keepers are an association of firemen, police officers and military personnel dedicated to upholding civilian rights afforded under the Constitution and refuse to uphold orders from their superiors which violate those rights. They are non violent, non partisan and wholly legal in the most fundamental way according to what stated in the Constitution.

“Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution

Our motto is “Not on our watch!””

oathkeepers.org/oath

Thursday night, shortly after the birth of their new baby girl, Cheyenne, John Irish and Stephanie Taylor lost their parental rights and their child was stolen.

New Hampshire Division of Family Child Services along with police enlisted hospital staff to take the child, telling her parents it was in order for a pediatrician to perform a routine exam.

After taking the child, police emerged and demanded Irish allow them to search him, which they did, even after his refusal. Finding nothing more than a lighter and a pocket knife, an affidavit was produced stating Irish’s involvement with Oath Keepers as the primary reason for taking the child amongst an array of secondary charges which Irish states are entirely erroneous.

One of those secondary charges sited was his refusal to attend anger management courses… a charge which does not remotely constitute a cause for seizing one’s child.

According to the affidavit, John Irish was a member of a “Militia called the Oath Keepers”.

John Irish Affidavit

The Oath Keepers are not, in fact, a militia at all. A militia, by definition, would be comprised of a civilians who have trained and are able to operate as a state specific defense force… many of the Oath Keepers are not civilian, but in the employment of the US military itself, and the association is not a unified martial defense team, but simply a collection of police, firefighters, military, etc who have sworn to uphold the very oath which was required of them to take in their employment.

What is clearly the case here is that a visible line has been drawn in the sand by the PTB. A statement on free speech has been loudly broadcast… and its intent is to hit the most sensitive nerve of any normal human being… their children.

The controllers want all people to know… that ‘speaking your mind, standing up against a dictatorial government and demanding your basic human rights be left intact will cost you, and cost you dearly.

You have been warned… you can either stand up for what’s right… or you can keep your kids… but the two will not be compatible.’

The enemy knows just how dearly beloved children are to their parents… that a mother or a father has a deep, primal instinct to protect and even die for their kids. They know that just as if the American people were prisoners of war, they are much more likely to bow before their captors if their captors threaten their children, than if they torture the prisoners themselves.

John Irish’s story has made a lot of noise.., and that’s a good thing. If the public is aware and outraged, they certainly should be. His is not the first story of it’s kind to have taken place though. I

Irish’s position has been the position of many families before him who have stood up against tyranny, we can only hope that his is the one which will be the voice of the many.

In Williamson County, Austin, last April, the scene was not so different. Barry and Candi Cooper were drug reform activists and film makers who had a happy 7 year old son. They fell under investigation from CPS due to rumors that they were “teaching their son to distrust the government”.

One night their home was raided and searched by police officers claiming that they had heard Barry’s voice in the background of a false police report. After discovering an amount of marijuana which equated to a small misdemeanor charge, they were both arrested.

Some days later, while their son was visiting family in East Texas, CPS contacted the Coopers threatening felony endangerment charges. The filed grievances against these parents were officially being unsuitable parents due to teaching their child to distrust the government, and aggressiveness toward authorities because they demanded a court order prior to CPS entering their home.

Take a good look at the country you live in… especially if you are a parent of a minor child or might become one.

“As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.”

(Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler)

texasroadrunner.spaces.live.com “Behind the money is the socialist ideology that children should be raised by the state. This agenda was promoted by Dr. C. Henry Kempe (author of the Battered Child Syndrome) in the 1970′s.

An open supporter of the Communist party, he stated “We must remove children from the crude influence of their families and, frankly, nationalize them.”

Dr. Kempe emphasized the need for a “stealthy, incremental approach” to implementing the agenda to make families obsolete.

Federal statistics say that there are approximately 3 million reports of suspected child abuse and neglect each year. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services documents 900,000 as “substantiated”, leaving over 2 million families per year FALSELY ACCUSED.

Of the “substantiated” cases, 68% do NOT involve child maltreatment, according to the federal authorities. This figure is escalating at an alarming rate each year as over zealous reporting and frivolous intervention by CPS spins out of control.

Under the CPS microscope every word, inflection, and action is attributed with the most bizarre and outlandish “meanings.” If you have ever bounced a check, you have a “criminal record”; if your child is shy, they are “fearful and withdrawn”; if they are outgoing and active, they are “acting out due to the trauma.”

Federal law gives CPS 15 months to seek Termination of Parental Rights and have the child adopted out (and collect hefty adoption incentive bonuses—did we mention the money?)

So, children are being put up for adoption based on the timeline, even when parents have not had a chance to answer the initial allegations, and in the absence of any evidence or charges that they have harmed their child. Social workers routinely perjure themselves under oath without ever facing any penalties or admonishment.

This is a HUGE growth industry that provides private profit through Medicaid. Service providers (vendors) hold multi-million dollar contracts with the social service agencies.

Families are ordered to engage in “services” with the contracted vendors, all of whom bill Medicaid at inflated rates for “services” that are often inappropriate, unnecessary, onerous, and completely irrelevant (not to mention unconstitutional) to the families situation, or to child maltreatment.

We USED to be Christian home schoolers. Evidently, the State of Texas has a resocialization program underway to destroy my daughter’s belief system since it’s a crime to be a Christian and to home school.

It is socialist ideology that children should be raised by the State. Dr. C. Henry Kempe, author of the Battered Child Syndrome and an open supporter of the Communist party stated: “We must remove children from the crude influence of their families and, frankly, nationalize them.” ”

read articleConfessions of a Child Protective Service Headhunter

“My name is Black Michael and I granted way of Canada and Australia and the world my exclusive story as a retired headhunter who is trying to make amends for the over 25,000 children removed over a twenty-two year period.

CPS and other agencies paid me to falsify information to make these children wards of the court. As I said last week my job was to locate families on welfare, low income, low I.Q. or the least likely to be able to afford counsel that could get them their children returned to their custody.

I was paid $1,800 per child I brought into care, with a $500.00 bonus if a child was in someway handicapped and a $10,000 bonus if a child was adopted out without parental consent.

I am not proud of what I did and I am now trying to see that as many children as I can will be returned to their loving families. This is why I am stepping forward to give testimony to what we headhunters do.

First, we located a family that fit the criteria. Then watched that family for a circumstance that really happened, that was not really dangerous. But, when which likely made it look likely abuse, neglect or some other endangerment was going on. We then made written, sworn statements to the agencies we worked for and a warrant would then be issued for the child or children in that family to be removed from the family home. …..

With the economy as it is and the expected depression through by 2012, CPS and like organizations are doubling their quotas to stay in business and have no doubt for them this business is slowly monetary and has nothing to do with the safety of children in legitimate terms.

More children die in the hands of their foster parents than in the hands of their true parents for which I know I am responsible for the loss of life to these 11 of these children by falsifying records and statements….

As headhunters, we took a full week long course on how to spot vulnerable families, how to falsify allegations, how to testify to CPS benefit. This course also taught us that when children were taken into care the immediate program of separation of child from family would begin. The child would be rewarded for compliance and punished for defiance. A type of mind control would be used by foster parents even though these foster parents did not know they were being taught these skills during their training of two weeks.

Foster parents only have criminal checks. They are not interviewed by psychologists or trained personnel. They merely have to express their want to be foster parents and follow the instructions of care and reward and punishment to keep the children in their care under their control. The foster parent school is to separate the child from his or her parents as widely as possible.

The child, when the prearranged telephone call or visit has not produced, the child is told your mother and father hate you, they don’t want you, that is why they never showed up. We love you, we want you, you are safe with us as long as you follow our simple rules and expectations. Very quickly most contact with birth parents and families is brought to very limited contact. ”

Understand that for every individual who is intimidated into laying down and accepting the harassment of the state in their family affairs out of fear, there is that much more to fear in the future.

Every incremental step the dictators succeed in taking, is one step closer to a country where no one will have a secure right to protect their own children from a government who might see fit to kidnap them.

As terrifying a statement as they have made in threatening to steal children due to political viewpoints… it is not time to lay down and accept it.

If anything, it is time for parents to rethink allowing their children to partake in the system altogether.

Babies have been born for millennia outside of hospitals and humanity still survived… take the power out of the hands of the controllers and have your children at home.

Don’t register them… don’t send them to public schools, don’t take them for vaccinations. Parents, take your kids from the state before the state takes them from you.

Today’s Headline: Escaped Mind on the Loose

Posted in 02 : The Truth Is Out There... with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 09/13/2010 by timenolonger

What comes through the television, radio and internet in the form of views expressed by highly influential personalities, whether they be political, scientific or religious carry with them a greatly under-estimated power to sway the masses.

Though most will assume themselves to be free thinkers, generally people will not hesitate to “parrot” an opinion from an “expert” with whom they agree.

Here is how public opinion gets pushed…

Appeal to humanitarianism:

Most of us want to believe that we are humane individuals who want the best for others. Knowing this… the landscapers of public opinion can not represent their ideas in the harsh terms they really resemble in the light of day… they must appeal to some “greater good” to support their view.

It becomes a necessity for the greater good to sacrifice freedom, quality of life or even life itself so that the many can be benefited though it comes at cost to the few.

The “lesser of two evils” is often the staple philosophy behind such supposed humanitarian appeals. It is better to vaccinate children with the risk of complications that take some greater risk with contagious diseases. It is better to subject airline passengers to a little dangerous radiation and a brief humiliating experience, insisting they go through a body scanner than to risk safety to possible hijackers. (etc..)

Instill Fear:

Whenever possible it behooves the pushers to subtly suggest that the alternative to their viewpoint will result in calamity and suffering.

Always having a mythical, but much believed in, Bogeyman to threaten the public with is very effective. Popular Bogeymen we’ve heard much about are such imposing figures as Mr. Al Qaeda, Captain Global Warming and Dr. Incurable Disease.

Convince the Public of their Incompetence:

The sweetly delivered but condescending message that many minds have accepted is that the public is simply too unintelligent to form their own opinions or gather their own evidence.

You are quickly told to sit down and be quiet (in more subtle terms of course) should you begin asking too many insightful questions about widely accepted beliefs.

The insistence which filters through is that the people are not experts, and only experts are qualified to set a standard of opinion or have enough knowledge to comprehend why that opinion should be considered correct.

Even the layperson who is considered more intelligent than average is likely to simply be someone who has a better memory for retaining all the answers which they have heard the “experts” preach rather than the one who questions those experts.

Push a Subjective View of Reality:

I can be wrong and you can be wrong and we can all be wrong together… but they would have you believe something to the opposite effect of this which flies in the face of basic sanity: “I can be right and you can be right and we can all be right together… even though none of us agree.”

This is supposedly a recipe for peace in society… the idea that we can each retain our own view of reality but we can’t call another view wrong or attempt to correct it.

In the end this politically correct philosophy is hypocritical since those views which agree with the mainstream become those views which are protected from the “fringe” who would differ.

The common sense understanding that right is correct and wrong… isn’t… is no longer acceptable.

Encourage Emotionalism:

It’s impossible to impress rational minds with the irrational… so rational thinking is not the friend of anyone attempting the brainwash the public.

Emotion is the catalyst by which people become entrenched in illusions of perception. Advertising is designed to produce euphoric feelings at the thought of owning something shiny and new.

Fluff human interest stories on the news evoke emotions of sympathy or shallow happiness, distracting attention from real world changing events.

What people tend to care about and spend the greatest amount of concern with becomes that which effects them on an emotional level. The opinions and views which people hold become those which gratify their emotional interests.

Shape a Livestock Mentality:

Livestock do not normally attempt to defend themselves from whatever use their masters might have for them, even if that use means they end up dead.

In the same way people are encouraged to view authority figures as above questioning, and if one should question them it is perceived as abnormal and even dangerous.

The public is strongly under the impression that they must be kept, maintained and protected by “authorities” of government, military and medicine. The ideas of self sufficiency, self defense or natural self medication are regarded with suspicion and fear of an almost superstitious nature.

Overcome The Serpent System…

There is no one who would not benefit from a conscious effort to combat the subconscious warfare against their individuality, creativity and ability to think resourcefully.

From the very asleep to the fairly awake… no one is utterly immune to the constant pressures of mind bending tactics perpetrated on society at large.

Becoming consciously aware that such a thing is intentionally designed is only half the battle… there needs to then be a committed effort to rethink everything from the ground up for each individual.

These are some conscious mental reminders which if employed as habit can go a long way to begin thinking as an individual in the midst of a world that thinks like a herd…

Let the Creator and His Commandments Be Your Measure of Morality:
No matter what is presented as good, beneficial or humanitarian, no matter what leaps of “logic” might be presented to make a course of action seem necessary for the “greater good”… if even one individual is wronged in the process…it’s wrong.

Man can not redefine morality, being immoral creatures, to suit their convenience… a lesser of two evils is always still evil.

Have Faith, Not Fear:

Once one puts their trust in YHWH, knowing that there is no situation too dire to prevent His protection and that not even death is to be feared… no amount of badgering with fear tactics will cause that one to make irrational judgments based on some real or imagined threat.

Recognize Your Own Intelligence:

You are not lower species than those who are deemed “experts”… you have the mental capacity to wrestle with challenging concepts, identify sensible answers and reject senseless ones.

Given the time and the desire, most people are perfectly capable of comprehending complex subject matters and coming to better conclusions about them than those they have been led to believe. The Creator made mankind with big brains… amen.

Truth Is Stable and Doesn’t Ask Our Opinion:

Just as there is an obvious and unavoidable answer to 1+1… there are similarly sure, correct answers to everything else… even if we don’t know them all.

We need to humbly recognize that we have to yield to truth, as it won’t yield to us, and stick by that in spite of every argument of “tolerance” the world throws at us.

Tolerance of people should mean being compassionate and honest, while the level of tolerance we have for ideas needs to be judged according to real morality and technical correctness.

Think More, Feel Less:

Removing every instinct to be offended, flattered, enticed, excited or scared and simply analyzing the raw data has the effect of bringing us to conclusions which are grounded in the best of what we Know rather than simple drives and urges.

Whereas we might Feel enticed to buy an advertised product… the facts dictate that it is unnecessary and overpriced. There is a reason that the eyes are connected to the brain and not the heart… 🙂

You are Not a Kept Pet:

You have the ability to think and act as an independent entity. You are able to learn new skills to provide for, protect and defend you and your family and it is normal behavior to utilize them within your capacity.

There should likewise be no reasonable expectation of consistent and benevolent provision or protection from government agencies or medical personnel. Free means free… let’s live it.

Preparing for the New Shift in Enemy Tactics

Posted in 07 : The Ruling Controllers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/14/2010 by timenolonger

The New Age movement is busy awaiting a “shift” in consciousness here on Earth.

This is supposed to be a shift which moves people into a better state of affairs than has been the case thus far.

That cotton candy brand of optimism this idea relates is quite a Disneyland fantasy if you have spent more than 5 years on Earth noting the tendency of mankind to progressively degrade.

We can, in fact, expect a “shift” of a certain sort… one which does not lead to the betterment of the state of affairs on this planet, but a shift nonetheless.

We can expect a point when the delusion that is pervasive over the majority of humanity becomes so impenetrable, so absolute, that the few (very few) remaining who are not swept up in it, are entirely unable to awaken the rest.

The Great Delusion as it is termed in scriptural reference.

I can appreciate the willingness to stand firm against the NWO and all its tactics in those of a secular mind set.

It is at least refreshing to know that there are non-believers capable of recognizing evil when they see it, and in that is perhaps their greatest hope… that if they can remain awake to that fact, then there remains the possibility of seeing to the bottom of the rabbit hole, that this battle is really not one of flesh and blood, but of higher spiritual influences.

Unfortunately the secular mind is going to drive toward a secular solution to the problem… and entertain the notion of a human victory.

The bad news is, people of the world, we are not going to see a human victory. There will be no Hollywood-worthy rise of the little guy to overcome the villains of Globalism and Population Reduction.

To imagine the possibility is to go beyond optimism into the realm of the ridiculous… you have at your disposal some torches and some pitchforks… they have scalar weapons and literally all the wealth of the world to back them.

The good news is… we know we’re waiting for victory which belongs to our Savior, and He will not delay it one second past the appointed time.

What is humanly impossible, He will accomplish in one fleeting second as He banishes the users and abusers of His people from the face of the Earth forever. That’s worth waiting for.

Between now and then, our objective is not to win a war of politics, wealth or notoriety…

our objective is to keep vigilant, to understand as well as possible the next move of the enemy,

to guard the soul against deception, and to do all that we can to bring those still in the dark into the light, before the delusion closes like black waters around them.

Our aim is a higher spiritual influence, just as our true enemy’s is…ours seeks to open the floodgates of information which will edify toward a deeper understanding of what really matters… an eternity with YHWH.

The enemy, though is a master of counterfeit. Having never produced a single original thing in all his days, Satan does know how to make cheap replicas which look incredibly convincing.

There is not simply ‘one counterfeit per truth’ in Satan’s designs either… rather, he builds layer upon layer of deception.

As some rise above the old lie, he produces a new one to encapsulate the recently awakened, which appeals to the knowledge just gained, but adds discordant notes of his own.

In this way, the world goes though a shift of consciousness every decade or so.

In the pre-9/11 America, people were generally oblivious. Ripe for the initiation of the globalist onslaught which was planned for them.

Some things go according to the enemy’s plan… and some don’t.

Directly following the events of 9/11, things went amazingly well from the perspective of the global controllers.

Caught in a frenzy of patriotic indignation, the American people were happy to embrace the idea of an enemy they could point to on the map, and in unison declared “let’s get ’em”.

Then something happened…

People began to shake the fog that had been clouding their sight. They began to ask questions, first to themselves, and then to their baffled friends and finally to their leaders, who responded with such obvious avoidance that the suspicion only broadened.

The advent of a world connected to the internet has allowed those questions to be asked out loud, to be answered in turn, and to the irritation of those who had it all under control… something of a great awakening occurred.

But don’t get comfortable truth seekers…

The world is now on the brink of the new flavor of counterfeit… a new shift into a new way of deceiving.

Knowing that so many have come to so much information, which was never meant to be the privilege of the public to know…

you can rest assured that the next step out will take us to a place where truth and fiction become more tangled than ever before.

Alternative media might become the new “mainstream” and we will have to regard those who speak of government conspiracy with as much skepticism as we regard Fox news. A lie to cover a lie… a half truth to obscure the whole truth.

Perhaps you can just count my warning as having the relevance of an intuitive guess… because that is what it is.

I have, however watched the shifts take place, felt the atmosphere of public awareness before the tide turns, and smelled the staleness of the air just before a new storm blows in.

These are the metaphorical indications which all seem to be present right now. We have on the Earth now, something which can be likened to the teetering of a balance just before it falls to one side.

They know they must act upon the way people think now before it becomes a less advantageous condition to their objectives.

They know they have to sell a whopper of a lemon to the public and need a great one-liner to do it.

It might come like a train wreck, though it is more likely to come as a slow suffocation. It will surely come sooner or later.

Watch and be ready…

The Spirit of the “Liliths” in Modern Society

Posted in 06 : Possessing Spirits with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 08/12/2010 by timenolonger

“You’ve come a long way, baby.” The marketing slogan of Virginia Slims, boasted on behalf of “liberated women” in 1968.

The concept of a societal shift into a new era where women were supposedly, finally breaking free of an ages old, male dominated world structure seemed to many women to herald a brighter future, and caused many old fashioned men to long for the “good old days”.

As it has panned out, instead of liberated, women might actually find themselves enslaved to the same old “by the sweat of your brow” misfortune which has always been the lot of men, minus any real elevation of respect, since now more than ever, women are viewed objects of lust.

That is normally the payout of Satan’s promises… he dangles a carrot before some desiring eyes, but when the object is obtained, it seems to always come with all the side effects and none of the cure.

Satan has understood the concept of “the grass is always greener on the other side” for thousands of years, and has always utilized that philosophy against every faction of human society, and even against his own kind… other angels who took the bait and followed his example.

The feminist agenda, like any deceptive philosophy which has shaped what has become the modern structure of society, has beginnings grounded in a precedent set in the early years of human history.

There’s nothing new under the sun… Satan simply knows how to recycle and repackage old news like it was today’s headlines. He re-gifts… and the gifts are usually less appealing than fruitcake.

The beginning of objectification of women is blame that can be easily put on the rebel Watchers.

This class of angels who rebelled in the act of taking human partners and fathering children, were essentially corrupted through lust and for the first time in history, human women began to be a commodity based only on their sexual appeal.

The Watchers, however, had entered into a world which was already in the control of Satan and his rebels.

The atmosphere of Earth was primed for temptation to sin, and certainly Satan recognized the immense value to his goals that could be gained by encouraging the sin of the Watchers to take place.

They brought to the playing field what Satan’s forces lacked… a means to Physically enter in upon the human scene, and change it on an organic level.

The leader of the rebel Watchers, Shemyhaza proposed, what no doubt had already been a temptation in the Watchers thoughts for a while, that they each choose wives, live with them and have children.

She demands he reveal to her the true name of Elohim in exchange for the union, which he at first refuses to do, and then finally agrees.

The picture that we get, then, is the first occasion of a woman manipulating herself into a place of power with someone who would, under normal circumstance, not be subject to her control.

This description of events being essentially the gist of what actually took place would explain the basis of the reason for Ishatar becoming so predominant over her husband in the pagan societies following the flood.

This same legend takes a sudden odd turn at the end which, interestingly reveals the power of her manipulation, not only on one rebel angel, but on the direction world history.

The story ends with Ishatar using the very Name of Elohim which Shemyhaza revealed to her to enable her to fly, and by pronouncing it, escapes his affections and becomes immortalized as a star in the Heavens for retaining her virtue.

This ending to the tale flies in the face of every description of who Ishatar was to the cultures who deified her… far from being a virginal figure of untouchable chastity, she is synonymous everywhere with feminine sexuality taken to a domineering level.

The romanticized fable of the virginal Ishatar has become the prototype of the Catholic Mary, however… even to the point of retaining the title “Queen of Heaven”.

Ishatar then, was the original “women’s Liberation” activist.

Much like her modern age followers… she did not better her position ultimately, as we will see… instead she became the posterchild sex object.

Deified for her position as a consort to a “god” who became faceless and nameless over the years, and as a reproductive tool.

The legend of Lilith has retained some heavily idolized fame in the modern world.

When people generally think of Lilith, they might first recall a story of Adam’s original wife who refused to behave subordinately to him, and instead chose to join herself to a fallen angel (usually cited to be Lucifer) and produced a horde of demon children.

This tale bears no supportable resemblance to anything which literally took place… however, there is a thinly veiled element of veracity which can be traced to reveal the real identity of “Lilith” and where such a story sprang from.

There is not even a scant mention anywhere in scripture or ancient history to support the notion of Adam having had a first wife who was created directly from the Earth as he was, and who was eventually replaced by the more suitable Eve. This concoction is the product of a publication in the middle ages by an anonymous author.

A mention of Lilith occurs in scriptural canon, in Isaiah 34:14, where the word “liylith” is translated as “screech owl” or “night creature”…

“The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the jackals and the wild goat shall bleat to its companion. Also the night creature (liylith) shall rest there and find for herself a place of rest. “

– Isaiah 34:14

Strong’s Concordance gives the definition for liylith as “a night specter”, though if the word is followed back through it’s etymology, one will come to references to wreaths and twining or twisting… followed back even farther, the root comes down to the word – “lawah” which means to join to, to unite with, to cleave.

We then, should be starkly reminded how the marital union between two individuals are described in scripture… as a cleaving, a uniting, a joining.

Those very terms are applied also in respect to those women who married angelic husbands.

Even the symbolism of the wreath, which is referenced in the definition of “liylith” is recognized in pagan practice as a symbol which memorializes fertility deities.

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

– Genesis 2:24

It is fitting that the name Lilith should found to correlate to a joining, a unifying or a cleaving to… the earliest records which are extant of this name call Lilith a handmaid or sacred prostitute in the service of Ishatar.

Further recorded mentions by Assyrian sources do not reflect a Person, but rather a type of entity with the word “lilitu”.

This was a sexually predatory female entity which killed children, brought disease and was associated with storms. This same theme runs parallel to Greek traditions of sirens, who are described much the same way.

Sirens were regarded in Greek mythology as deadly female beings who dwelt either in water or near it… luring men who sailed those waters to their death by singing a song which they could not resist.

The men would then seek to follow the sound, only to be drowned in the waters.

Nymphs, naiads and dryads were similar categories of feminine entities who preyed on men through lust dwelling in fresh water streams, pools or trees which were fed from haunted water sources.

This is the answer which 1 Enoch gives as to the origin of all such beings…

“And Uriel said to me: ‘Here shall stand the angels who have connected themselves with women, and their spirits assuming many different forms are defiling mankind and shall lead them astray into sacrificing to demons ‘as gods’,

(here shall they stand,) till ‘the day of’ the great judgment in which they shall be judged till they are made an end of.

And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens.’ “

– 1 Enoch 19

It is most reasonable that the legend of an individual named Lilith has grown out of a general term applied to those women who “joined” themselves to the rebel Watchers, and that it was never in reference to a single female entity.

The wives (and concubines) of the Watchers would naturally fall in line behind Ishatar, who would be the “first lady” so to speak, her husband being the foremost authority amongst the rebels.

Ishatar has not lost any relevance in this modern age, which indicates the greater magnitude of importance she came to represent, above even the majority of the fallen angels… particularly their leader.

Besides the Catholic Church, who proudly displays her as the supposed mother of Messiah, she is a favorite corporate logo and a beloved symbol of “liberty” in the United States.

She is emblazoned on the sides of Starbucks coffee cups and her figure is the first image you will see when you watch any Columbia film production.

Her presence as a force, behind a misguided concept of feminism, still galvanizes young girls to assert their “individuality”, only to be dragged into an ever worsening scene of female objectification and degradation.

It is no accident that a “lilith” philosophy reigns in the same age as rampant unwed pregnancies and abortion…

she has always been the reigning queen of deviant behavior and infanticide since the far, ancient past until this day.

Remembering the Golden Rule in Desperate Times

Posted in 01 : The Chief Cornerstone with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 06/26/2010 by timenolonger

We have desperate times ahead. I don’t normally like to make sure statements on the future… but barring divine intervention… I don’t see any possible way that this nation will avoid some severely desperate times soon.

In the next 12 months we might witness a complete breakdown of society in the US… we might well see martial law, the detention of millions of innocent civilians, explosions, fire, toxic rain and famine.

These are the sorts of conditions we’ve seen depicted in entertainment which disintegrate into a dog-eat-dog societal mentality.

Every man for himself… we can easily imagine the worst mankind has to offer being brought out of their natures in times of fear and need.

This is precisely the reaction to adversity our enemy would enjoy witnessing in the hapless population of the “land of the Free and the home of the Brave”.

The enemy doesn’t want to see people moved in the spirit of YHWH to fearlessly reach out to their fellow humanity and do for one another what each individual wants done for himself.

It’s time to put fear away, people of Yahushua.

This might seem like a strange challenge to make on the heels of a statement about how disastrous a future we face, but truly it isn’t.

It’s not news that death follows a mortal life, or that we have been told that there will be a severe trial of refinement and division in the earth as the last days descend, but this was only ever a temporary world anyway.

What do we look for if not the Kingdom of our Savior, and what do we prepare for if not eternity?

So when things begin to shake your world… when the place you once recognized as a safe nation in which to live becomes a wild and ravenous landscape of tribulation, understand that you have a Creator capable of guiding your steps, capable of counting the sparrows who fall, and capable of taking care of you, and if you are someone who is mature in your walk with Him and you are able to lay aside fear, be then an agent of His mercy.

If you find yourself with “just enough food” in a time of want, don’t fail to remember that your Savior filled the bellies of thousands with a few loaves of bread and a few fish.

If you find yourself with “just enough water”… remember that He told us in the end He will say to His redeemed “you saw me thirsty and gave me a drink… inasmuch as you gave it to one of these least of my brethren, you gave it to me.”

If you find yourself blessed with shelter that others lack, don’t forget to love your neighbor as much as you love yourself.

“And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.”

– Matthew 5:41,42

These words of our savior, we all know them… if we are committed to Him, we try to live them, but it is in the heat of adversity in which the real metal of the resolve to do right is tested.

Understand that we will all be faced with opportunities to lay aside our own needs in order to serve others, and in those times it is easy to let fear be the pilot that drives you… you might tell yourself you have responsibility to children, to wives, to parents… and you do, but who are all those who are your family?

“Then one said to Him, “Look! Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.”

But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?”

And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers!

For whoever does the will of My Father in the sky is My brother and sister and mother.””

– Matthew 12:47-50

If we, indeed, are set to see the evacuation of millions of people along the Gulf Coast… how will you reach out to those who will be bereft of a home, or maybe even unable to find transportation out of the effected areas?

We can all sit back and watch it happe,n and point fingers at the evil men who brought tyranny and martial law to their homes, who relocated them to facilities which are no better than prisons, who murder and rape and torture without conscience – and feel good that we don’t number among one of those tools of the NWO agenda… but what good is that?

If you are a resident in the Gulf Coast area with the means and the will to spare yourself the trouble before it comes, I hope you will consider giving shelter and aid and transportation to someone who has no means to do these things for themselves.

Likewise, I hope that all believers across the country who live in areas which are (so far) safe from harm, will extend themselves to give shelter and aid to those who might flee the area.

Help Others

It could be you someday in a desperate situation with seemingly no where to go and no one to turn to, and then you will find yourself at the mercy of those who have what you do not.

Many might be inclined to feel it’s crazy to put what is their own at risk to strangers, but I am inclined to trust that if one does what is right in His eyes, nothing can ultimately go wrong.

“And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”

He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading?”

So he answered and said, “You shall love Yahuwah your ‘Eloah with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.”

And He said to him, “You have answered rightly. Do this and you will live.”

But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Yahushua, “And who is my neighbor?”

Then Yahushua answered and said, “A certain man went down from Yeruwshalaim to Yericho and fell among thieves who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

Now by chance a certain temple official came down that road and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

Likewise a Lewiy when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side.

But a certain Shomerowniy as he journeyed came where he was.

And when he saw him, he had compassion.

So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine, and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

On the next day when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’

So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”

And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.”

Then Yahushua said to him, “Go and do likewise.””

– Luke 10:25-37

“Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets”.

– Matthew 7:12
