  1. God bless, protect and save families plus unborn children in Jesus Christ's name. https://www.lifenews.com/2019/09/26/president-trump-every-child-born-and-unborn-is-a-sacred-gift-from-god-2/?fbclid=IwAR3OpQfwlBSS6co7AwYj8tlXTeCA88ggb_1oxdGi76q2JaHlW2Xm5OolRWU
  2. Who is Lucifer? Who and what is the Devil, and what does he look like? He is the enemy of every Christian out there. Does he have horns, a pitchfork, long pointy tail, hoofs as feet, wearing red underwear. The Devil loves the thought of us believing this. This paper will go through the Bible, so we can I.D. him and how he operates. Let’ start in Ezekiel and see what he really looks like. <Eze 28:3-7> Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: <4> With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: <5> By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: <6> Therefore thus saith the LORD God; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God: <7> Behold therefore. I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. That is what GOD said about him. This was before his downfall. In verses 12-19, it tells about his downfall and the position that he held at that time. <EZE 28:12-19> Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. <13> Thou hast been in Eden the Garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. <14> Thou art the anointed Cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God: thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire <15> Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, til iniquity was found in thee. <16> By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering Cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. <17> Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee o the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. <18> Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore, will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. <19> All they that know thee among the people shall be astonish at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be anymore. These verses tell us a lot. It tells about satan being the anointed cherub that covereth. Meaning he was guarding one side of the Throne of God. It tells of God turning him to ashes. It also tells that he was in the Garden of Eden. Satan used to be free to wander the earth. In the book of JOB, it tells us this. Job is one of the older books of the Bible. <JOB 1:6-7> Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. <7> And the LORD said unto Satan, whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, from going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. Satan is free to come and go as he pleases. The next time we know for sure he was on the earth is the Temptation of Christ. <LUKE 4:3-8> And the Devil said unto him, if thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. <4> And Jesus answered him saying, It is written, that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. <5> And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. <6> And the devil said to him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. <7> If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. <8> And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the LORD thy God, and him only shalt you serve. After this point in time I believe he was locked up. More on that in a second. This next verse is about Satan trying to argue with Michael over the bones of Moses. It also tells about the fallen angels and their punishment of death. Also, this great day is the LORD’S Day or the Millennium. <JUDE 1:6-9> And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. <7> Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. <8> Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. <9> Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The LORD rebuke thee. With the fallen angels in chains, it is safe to say that Satan is also. Only his and the angel’s spirits can come to earth at this point in time. In the future sometime Michael will kick satan and the bunch out of heaven and onto the earth. <REV 12: 7-9> And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels. <8> And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. <9> And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil, and satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast to earth, and his angels were cast out with him. <REV 12: 12> Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. This is the time he gets to play anti-christ, and the false prophet, and is also called the “Beast from the earth”. It also talks about the “mark of the beast”. What exactly is this mark? If you read the verse closely it says “in your forehead” not on it. And on your “right hand” means to be working for his ministry. The number 666 means the Sixth Seal, Sixth Trump, and Sixth Vial. In this verse horns mean “power”. <REV 13: 11-18> And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and spake as a dragon. <12> And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. <13> And he doeth great wonders so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, <14> And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth , that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. <15> And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. <16> And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: <17> And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. <18> Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. After Armageddon and such, Satan will be locked in the bottomless pit for a thousand years. He will have a “seal” put upon him so not even his evil spirit will be able to bother anyone. <REV 20: 1-3> And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the keys of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. <2> And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and satan, and bound him a thousand years, <3> And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. When he is set loose, he will test all the ones who did not make the first resurrection, as to whom they are going to follow, either satan or our Heavenly Father. After that there is no more reason to have satan around, he served his purpose and now it was done. This is when God turns him to ashes from within, as we talk about earlier in Ezekiel 28:16-18. People think satan is ruling a place called Hell. The truth being told is he is in jail and doesn’t rule anything. He is God’s puppet. You don’t have to be afraid of the devil. Christ gave you power over him and evil spirits, but only in his name. <LUKE 10:18-19> And he said unto them, I beheld satan as lighting fall from heaven. <19> Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Well I hope this paper has informed you about our enemy. There is a lot more of the devil in the Bible. If you what more on the subject and End-Time Events, just cut and paste the link below. I thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it. I’m on Facebook, drop by and see me. Your friend, Burt Blanke https://thearmageddonchronicles.blogspot.com/p/lesson-01.
  3. Mark 3:27 says, "No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house." One time, after Jesus had cast out a devil and healed a deaf and mute boy, He explained that in order to overturn the works and activity of the devil, we must bind him first. Again in the New Living Translation Bible: "For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house" (Matthew 12:29). Christ in you is the one who is stronger and able to overcome. This is not the only place where the Lord plainly described a man as a "house" or habitation of the evil one. In the same chapter, He speaks of the unclean spirit cast out and, finding no other habitation, says, "I will return to my house" (see Matthew 12:44) and because no other had taken his place, he is able to "enter and dwell there" (see Matthew 12:45) with seven others more evil than himself. The key to real freedom and overcoming the strongman is to displace the enemy and establish the presence of God. Where satan has been commanded to leave, fill it up with God's Word and presence through daily intimacy. Where the presence of the Lord is, the devil isn't! Satan doesn't want to hang around where people are lifting up Jesus in worship and prayer. The presence of the Lord displaces the devil. "For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" (II Corinthians 6:14). BIND THE PRINCIPALITIES OF DISEASE AND SICKNESS As II Corinthians 4:4 shows us, satan is the "god of this world." He is the strongman with power to steal, kill, and destroy (see John 10:10) and he has the ultimate power of death (seeHebrews 2:14). The kingdoms of the world and their power and glory are the devil's (see Luke 4:5-6). Jesus has given us the ministry to binding and loosing what has already been bound and released in Heaven because of His finished work! "I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in Heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven" (Matthew 16:19). VICTORY OVER STRONG MEN Lofty arguments and opinions are the results of pride and evil and vain imaginations - the very strongholds in which demons reside. This then is the essence of demonic warfare -- the power of God to overcome the strongholds of demons. One way we can bind and weaken any demonic stronghold is by setting the captive free like Jesus and moving in our authority. While Jesus was here during His earthly ministry, He was freeing people from the devil by casting him out of them (see Luke 13:11-16; Mark 5:1-15; John 8:32-36). As we set the oppressed free, we weaken the strongman! We must remember,"For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds" (II Corinthians 10:4). One of the greatest ways we can plunder the strongman's house and overcome the enemy's power is by understanding our true authority in Christ and how to resist the devil by submitting to God's promises. In I John 4:4, we're told that the One who is in us is greater than the one who is in the world. II Corinthians 10:3-5, Ephesians 6:10-18, and James 4:7-8 show us the proper way to resist the devil and defeat his schemes through submitting to God. What is more amazing is that Jesus gives authority and power to us. "Jesus summoned His twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to cure every disease and every sickness" (Matthew 10:1). In overcoming demonic strongmen and strongholds, we must remember the importance of prayer and intercession -- coming together in agreement to bind the principalities of disease and sickness during mass prayer before loosing and declaring the healing power of God! And continue praying with other Believers against strongholds until you get results. There is intensified power in the gathering of more Believers. Prayer with fasting intensifies faith, and faith will break strongholds. "Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not cast him out?' .....However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting" (Matthew 17:19, 21). PREPARED FOR BATTLE We do not take on demonic strongholds in our own strength. We protect ourselves with the first five pieces of defensive armor and wield the one offensive weapon - the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. In verses 12 and 13 of Ephesians 6, Paul writes, "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY http://afministry.ning.com
  4. Isaiah 14:12-15 - How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Can anyone tell me if the words art thou cut down to the ground in this verse mean that Satan was Cast down to the Earth? Thanks and God Bless!
  5. Having experienced the torments of Hell, I can verify the legitimacy of this testimony, but more importantly, discernment tells me it's real and genuine. I encourage those who watch this not to go down a rabbit hole of Hell testimonies all at once, it can be overwhelming and very depressing, please be led by the Spirit by discerning the voice of God on all pursuits, but Jesus has taken people to experience these experiences for a reason. May you learn from these testimonies and be convicted (if necessary) and not condemned by responding to that conviction accordingly, (remember God chastises those He loves!) and may the Lord bless you mightily in Jesus' mighty name! Revelation 20:15: And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire. Luke 12:5: But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Revelation 21:8: But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
  6. IN 4 months i went from being a complete christian to a terrified man desperate for peace. My mind, my body, my well being and i'm even afraid to say soul and spirit because i'm afraid to even admit that has even been touched out of being ashamed that it has been put into jeopardy by my own sinful behavior that i need help. The devil has been trying to take credit for all of God's good work that he has ever done in me and repeat it so he can receive credit for it and i need help. I'm trying to God and be with Him and the more i struggle the more pain I feel. I know GOD, I know JESUS, I know the LORD, and We have had an amazing relationship not more or less than anyone else. But i need help. I've been convinced that i was going to be used by the devil or God and that at this moment no matter what i do the devil is using me. I confess in my ignorance and selfishness i have struggled with forgiveness and blaspheming to thee point where it has destroyed my life physically and mentally. Yet i try to be free of it and it get's worse and worse. So i ask is it too late for me. I just admitted to my sins last night and tried to beg for forgiveness but all i saw was a black figure over me blocking my prayer. I even tried to reach past it but feeling like it wouldn't work. I feel everything I've been doing from church service to prayer has been rerouted to the devil in my mind and i want it to stop. I need Jesus and i want release from this but i don't even know how to start. I have therapy and a loving family and supportive church but i feel like I've been corrupting or bringing down those people because every time i feel a breakthrough i get skeptical and doubtful all the way to the point where i even make a big deal out of emotions. I feel like i'm being convinced to be satanic. I try to turn away from it but i seem to get the most resistance there. I want to turn to God but i feel like His Word is saying it's too late. I don't want it to be true. Is it too late for me to turn back. So far only fear anger and stress and anxiety have been what get's me to move. And my delay seems to be my down fall even trying to post this i had like 5 interruptions and my thoughts fear 6's and upside down crosses and every time i release my pain i have doubts about where my pain is going and who is using me. Something good will happen, i'll feel relief and then i'll get bombarded all over again. PRAYER ADVICE FREEDOM PUT YOUR ARMOR ON PLEASE. HELP ME.
  7. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. - John 8:44 We have to remember that Satan is the father of lies. He is a murderer from the beginning and dwells in falsehood. He never wants the glory to go to Jesus Christ but rather twists the truth and deceives those in the Lord’s work to take glory to themselves. Satan is also the master counterfeiter who has been deceiving God’s people since the beginning. He spoke to Eve and deceived her by twisting the truth of God saying, “Has God indeed said?” Such twisting of the truth is his normal activity. Since the earliest days of the apostles, even with our Lord himself, there were deceivers and false brethren present: those who secretly come into God’s flock for personal gain and to infiltrate the liberty of the believers, betrayers, deceivers, false brethren, false prophets, and those desiring preeminence among the saints (3 John 1:9). Diotrephes and one's like him did not seek honour in the church as much as sought his own truth, his own way and seperated himself from the doctrines of the Apostles and all the other Churches. He was stubborn to think he was right and all others were wrong. A false teacher is always who is in admidst but then seeks to draw people "out of" towards themselves. Just like satan, these false teachers do not have, "the truth in them." One key to understand the working of God versus Satan in a meeting of believers is the emphasis put on the Son of God. Those that worship, honor, and glorify the Holy Spirit more than Jesus Christ are not led by the Holy Spirit to do that. The Holy Spirit will always honor Jesus Christ; thus the true working of the Spirit can be distinguished in measure. The Scripture states: “He shall not speak of himself” (John 16:13). All early Church creed statements always elevate the work of the cross and the incarnation of the Son of God. In the end times, there will be an influx of those in the Church teaching doctrines of demons to deceive even the elect of God. There will be many false teachers who claim to be of the truth but are not. The most dangerous weapon against the Church is not persecution, but deception. One key feature of these deceptions is that there is something new offered, when rather we should be seeking to believe the truth that is old and that which the Church has held to from the beginning.
  8. Matthew 6:13 - "And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one." There is no temptation or sin in heaven. This prayer does not imply that God wants to tempt us. We know from James 1:13 that it is impossible for God to entice us to sin. This kind of praying is important because it requires us to face our need for grace. It helps us to align our heart with heaven -- one of absolute dependency on God. The phrase "deliver us from evil", as it is traditionally rendered, actually means, "deliver us from the evil one." A heart modeled after heaven has great success in spiritual warfare. Jesus was able to say, "satan has nothing in me." The believer is to be completely free from all satanic influence and attachments. That is the cry voiced in this prayer. James 4:7 - "So be subject to God. Resist the devil (stand firm against him), and he will flee from you." Colossians 1:12,13 - "Giving thanks unto the Father ...Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son." Many believers limit God without even realizing it by training their eyes on the limited resources of this world rather than the unlimited riches of God's Kingdom. Their faith fails when they think of the troubled economy on the earth or of the scarcity that surrounds them. The Bible says God has "delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son." To be translated means to be taken out of one place and put into another. In other words, your citizenship is not primarily of this earth...you are first and foremost a citizen of the Kingdom of God. That means this planet doesn't have any right to dictate to you whether your needs are met or not. The Bible says God will meet your needs according to His riches in glory! (Philippians 4:19) AFFIRMATIONS: I wake up to the fact that I've been translated out of a world of poverty into a kingdom of abundance. Heaven's unlimited resources are available to me! John 8:32 - "If you abide in My word, you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free." Some have thought being nice was of the same essence as knowing the truth. It is not. We can thank our parents that we are nice but, if we would know the truth, we must seek God and be willing to obey Him. ALBERT FINCH MINISTRY
  9. The title was supposed to be: The "beast" of Rev 13 through hermeneutics and the traditional historicist approach to prophecy. If admin can please change it, perhaps better to fit the space would be: The "beast" of Rev 13 through hermeneutics and historicism I authored all of the content of this post that comes from my website. The science of hermeneutics is used by scholars to interpret everything from literature, to poetry, to legal documents to scripture. Let's see if scripture can help us define and explain the "beast" of John's chapter 13 prophetic vision in the book of Revelation through sound hermeneutic principles. In Daniel's chapter 7 dream we find: Daniel 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. Daniel 7:4 The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle's wings... Daniel 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear... Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard... Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly... In the verse below we are brought to understand, that at least in the figurative language of a vision or dream in prophecy, a "beast" is defined as a kingdom. Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. BEAST = KINGDOM Daniel detailed his kingdom "beasts" so well that there is a broad agreement among both Jewish and Christian scholars that the kingdoms represented by Daniel's lion, bear and leopard, are the successive ancient kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece, followed by the fourth beast, that is understood to be the Roman Empire. I left out a map of the Roman Empire because because it is not mentioned in Rev 13. The conclusion regarding Daniel's lion, bear and leopard beasts being successive kingdoms, is reached within the traditional historicist approach to prophecy. This is simply the view that figures in figurative language may represent actual people, places or things, and that bible prophecy is fulfilled steadily as the era about which it is written gradually unfolds. This is the approach through which virtually all Christians and Jews understand Old Testament prophecy was fulfilled, and for the first 1800 years including the Reformation, the church understood New Testament prophecy was being fulfilled. Taking a uniform approach to all bible prophecy. When we turn to the New Testament and John's prophetic vision we read: Rev 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. Now we could go to the zoo to investigate those figures, or perhaps engage in unsupportable speculation and presumption, or we could apply an adjacent hermeneutic to see if the Bible might offer some clues. And as we already saw, we find three of the very same figures, and even mentioned together in the very same chapter in the figurative language of Daniel's prophetic dream, as we see in this composite of those kingdom beasts in the figurative language of John's prophetic vision. The reverse order could be because Daniel's dream was forward looking at these kingdoms to come, while the 1st century of John's vision was looking backward at their fulfillment. This leopard-bear-lion kingdom "beast" was to "continue" 42 "months" as confirmed in The seats of the ancient successive kingdom beasts of Daniel's lion, bear and leopard which are widely believed to be Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece, are occupied today by the countries of Iraq, Iran, and Syria/Lebanon. With Muslim population in Iraq at 97%, Iran 98%, Syria/Lebanon 90%/60% Islamic. The dragon in Rev 13:2 is Satan. The power that Satan gave his "beast" is the sword, through which Islam was spread, and the threat of which for 1400 years has prevented people from leaving Islam and coming to Christ. Another part of the power of the Islamic kingdom "beast" is oil. No surprise we find western nations whoring themselves out to countries that are composed of up to virtually 100% antichrists (Saudi Arabia), that are even sworn to annihilate us (Iran), to keep the flow of oil going. Countries with statutes that call for the death penalty for "apostasy" and for the crime of "blasphemy" that we in the west would characterize as speaking openly and honestly about Muhammad as he is revealed in Islam's own books. Western nations even give weapons to these totalitarian countries, that will eventually be turned on Israel's democracy. Evermore compromising the safety and freedom of the citizens of the Israeli Jewish State, who are the only people in the Middle East, that share our western values. Who protect the freedom, liberty of Israeli Jews, Christians, non-Muslim Arabs - and Muslims. Indeed Muslims also enjoy more freedom in Israel, than they do in any Islam controlled state on earth. This Islamic kingdom "beast" is described "as a leopard", perhaps also because while an individual Muslim can change (against tremendous odds loosing family, friends, inheritance and in some places even their lives), it is impossible for Islam to change, as long as the Quran (mouth of the "beast") exists: Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? [then] may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. While these countries and various sects of Islam may have differences so great they even murder each other, they are perfectly united spiritually through the false prophet Muhammad and his Quran. As a result they are each and every one filled with the spirit of antichrist who are taught that to confess that Jesus is the Son of God, or even to pray in Jesus' name, would be to commit the single most "heinous" and only unforgivable sin ("shirk") in the false prophet Muhammad's counter-gospel anti-religion. Sura 19:88 They say: "(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!" 89 Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous! Quran Surah 9.29 Fight those.....(even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 30 .....Christians call Christ the son of Allah. .....Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth! 1 John 2:22 .....He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father
  10. Just something that will make you think about How Satan is such a counterfeiter of what Jesus Did in the bible and the thought did not dawn on me till " WHAM " like a bolt out of the blue i seen something that almost made me sick to my stomach Ever Notice how when Santa is sitting on his Throne and parents and people are in long long cues to place their precious children , even infants on the lap of a Fat man in a Red Suit that is a complete stranger ? How the childs eyes just light up thinking the moment they sit on Santa's lap they will be able to tell them what they want for Christmas , they entrust every fiber of their being to make a list of the things of their hearts desires . Some infants will scream bloody murder reaching with helpless hands for " MOMMY " as tears run down their faces , and people just smile and say " CHEESE " as the kids face turns red in fear and some even leave their own "present for Santa " Now i want you to read this scripture in Mark 10:13-15 13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Luke 18:15-17 15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. Without question the most fertile time in the average persons’ life for receiving and trusting the Lord Jesus is the pre-teen years. Any church bus worker or youth worker knows young children are very receptive to the gospel of Jesus Christ. For them that "child like" faith is natural. It’s what the Lord Jesus described in Matthew 10:15. As we get older; the sensual, youthful lusts and logical, carnal mind begin to dominate our minds. And as that happens, our heart becomes hardened and seared to the spiritual things of God. Do you see the who conterfiets Jesus love ? yet millions flock to the fat man in the red suit and stand in long cues to have their child sit on a strangers lap ? We as parents love our kids and will protect them like a mother lioness to the death but we will place them on the lap of a complete stranger that is dressed as Santa Clause here is the scariest thing of all thing about this St Nick the word Nick look it up in the dictionary means Devil so why would we call Santa St Nick ? i do know this as Jesus said " The Devil comes as a lion to kill steal and destroy did you know when lions hunt they dont kill inside the ring of animals but choose the weak , the sick and the young to kill ! Satan is a counterfiter of God ever since He was Thrown out of the Garden of Eden! so what makes you think Santa is a good guy ?? when in reality The Name for Kriss Kringle - means The little Christ Child ! see the deception ... Jesus had the little ones come to him as the parents stood in long cues to see HIM He even kissed them and healed them ! Santa is not JESUS ! he is a Idol sitting on a throne God said " YOU SHALT NOT SERVE OTHER IDOLS " Santa is the pagan worlds idiol in a nut shell . He magnifies over even the Christ Child and even December 25th is Not the Day of Jesus Birth ! why would we want to give homage to a pagan day which is Saternalia ! for the Pagan ?? and the Witches very sad to think We as Christians think we need to introduce Pagan customs in Christianity and that GOD will honor this ? with or without a tree in your house ! Christmas is Not for Christians it is for Pagans and Witches look it up do your research Christian open your heart to what the HOLY Spirit is saying about THIS counterfiet Holiday that teaches us to LIE just as Satan lied to Adam and Eve and i hope this will shed some light into Satans little trick He uses with Santa .. God Bless and Shalom Lucifer even stated " I WILL SIT IN THE HEAVENS AND ON THE THRONE AND I WILL BE ABOVE EVEN GOD " the only throne that Anyone has a right to sit on is JESUS OR SAVIOR ! not SANTA some Words of Wisdom from GODS Word :lightbulb2:want to know more about Christmas and counterfiet behind even the tiny 8 reindeer ,the yule long even the elves and the North pole here is the link . http://www.biblebelievers.com/watkins_santa/santa.html
  11. Chapter 1; Getting Into Satanism I was a mere 14 when I first found out about satanism, it was my last year of middle school. A friend of mine told me about this book "The Satanic Bible". She let me borrow it and I read the whole thing, it made sense and to my surprise had nothing to do with worshipping satan or any such things. It was based on the atheist and agnostic view of "reality" and on nature. It said that a human is entitled to indulge in whatever they would like (as long as it didn't harm anyone underserving of harm). That's when I started doing extensive research on satanism and the Church of Satan. I watched/listened to interviews and youtube videos from satanists and I frankly agreed with what they were saying. That's when I came to the conclusion that I "WAS" a Satanist. An Example of an interview I watched : {{{ Removed video link. Please submit video links for review here. }}} Chapter 2; Selling my Soul to 'The Devil' Even though the 'type' of satanist I was did not believe in the devil or 'satan'. I decided it would be fun to 'Sell my Soul'. I do not remember exactly what I did or said but I can remember that I did it. Chapter 3; Drug Abuse I was at a party one night in the 9th grade, and a party -goer offered me a cigarette and like a fool I said "Yes". After that I found myself needing a cigarette more and more until the point of downright addiction. Then I started hanging around with people doing other drugs and I ended up getting into cocaine and Crystal Meth. My addiction to drugs lasted until just after I got saved. Chapter 4; Getting 'Saved' In early june I was leaving another party late and night and a lady who I walked by on the sidewalk said, "Do you know who Jesus is". I said "A fictional religious figure" she responded "he is not fictional, he is the lord". Then she started talking to me about Jesus and eventually took me to her home where she let me take a shower and stay the night. When I woke up in the morning ready to leave I walked down the stairs to the main floor where I was greeted by the scent of fresh pancakes and orange juice! She sat me down and began talking to me again and said "Before I let you eat this, there's something I would like to talk to you about". She went into my jacked pocket (my jacket was hanging on the chair at the other end of her kitchen) she took out a little plastic bag with white power in it and said "What is this?". Then we started talking about that. She finally let me eat the pancakes. Then when i left she gave me a free bible and said "I will pray for you'. I went back to my orphanage and opened it up and on the inside front cover she wrote her number and said "Feel free to call me, Taylor ". so I started reading (it took a while to read) so I called her a few times and one time she invited me to church and back to her house for lunch. She eventually got the opportunity to sit me down and help me confess and repent. And that's how I got saved. Now all that drug use has given me terminal cancer (I have about another year left) I am a christian now and I believe I got my soul back. -- Well that's my story something i just decided i should include: I still keep in touch with that nice lady. She visited me in the hospital once and we talked for a while and I said some stuff about the orphanage and she said "You're an orphan?' I said "Yes" she said "I am going to adopt you". And. Sure enough she did, I lived with her for a few months until i moved out to canada with my boyfriend at the start of november. so i guess i'm not truly an orphan anymore.
