SATANS TACTICS

With the birth of the Messianic Kingdom, Isiaiah 9:7

as with the birth of Jesus back in the first century, came as  a joyful occassion as in the past as now, with blessings for mankind who accept and partake of it. For those knowledgable about the progression of this “Throne of David” and how the seed promised at Gensis 3:16 would progress through the line of the tribe of Judah down to Jesus birth from this tribe to his death the removal of the natural isrealites as God’s special possession to allowing all to be part of his Kingdom blessings this is a reminder.

Each progression of God’s blessings and rulership came a rival Kingdom, determined to turn all away from the Kingdom of God that would impart life. In job 2 you can read how Satan accused Job of serving God out of selfish reasons and how God allowed satan limited access to test Job. Was God unsure of Jobs integrity? nah, it was to show the angels and to others who would learn of this account that yes there are people who serve God out of love and respect and not for what they could get out of him.

What is one tactic he uses? Well what is one thing humans have a strong desperate need for? you guessed it, a spritiual need, the need to go beyond basic human survival, look how inquisitive man’s mind is, how many questions he has and how he searches for them. Satan exploits this need (along with our physical needs too) to satisfy them in the wrong way. He has created rival gods, most people know that there are no such things as gods in the material universe, the sun or stars are not living beings, and that idols are nothing. This is just so obvious, yet there are gods that people make without ever realizing it unless it is pointed out, (I didnt notice it either).
one of those gods enviromentalism, (yea I know it is not a religion in most people’s minds) this is the idea that the most important thing to tackle and care for is the enviorment, and who would argue that? But when it becomes all consuming, and it’s mandates are based on conjecture, opinion, and false science, and adherents are considered heretics if they disagree or critically ask questions, then how is this different then religions of the past? if adherents are unwillingly to adjust their thinking based on new information, then you have a problem.

Another god is science, it is treated as sacred by alot of people, people set their clocks, lives, goals and understanding on it sometimes without much thought, or question. So I guess scientists are the priests of this religion. When one is worshipping man in any shape and form this becomes a dangerous precedent. Much of science, especially science of man’s orgins and future prospects, then they enter the realm of faith, as the evidence of thier conclusions is sparse at best,  yes they do manage to get some facts right, and I applaud that since science has helped us so much in so many ways it would fill a set of encyclopedias, but when a priest of science has his own bias, or beliefs system and is operating on assumptions before he even does his studies, and research that taints his conclusions. And when these priests are subject to peer or social or financial pressures to conform to preconceived ideas of supporters of the research, politicians, investors, etc, this god satan has used very well in getting people to come to wrong conclusions on things, how else do you think he is misleading the entire inhabited earth? Revelation 12:9-12

But you see people do not see satans influence in enviromentalism or science, to them it is always good, tho maybe applied wrongly sometimes but certainly not controlled by some unseen spirit. in fact science surly has proven satan and the demons as just superstitious. Hum, do you suppose satan has been very successful in convincing people (who have not really done their research)that he does not exist? that he has been successful in turning people away from Jehovah?

Lets take violence as an example, yes there has always been violence nothing new there, most people do not regard wanton violence and cruelty as the work of an invisible wicked spirit creature. many think that such things are a result of the evil inherent in human nature and the the main cause of evil is our own dark instincts.

Others theorize that a group of the wealthy and powerful or a shadowy global network has been manipulating people for decades in order to rule the world.   The definiton of wanton is unruly, mean, cruel, unjustified, uncalled for, for those who do not know.

Then there are those who blame the national governments and rulers for all the injustice and suffering they see. Since the beginning of time the devils thrist for power has also been reflected in politics and religion.  Revelation depicts political powers as wild beasts to whom the devil has given great authority. it also describes the shameless alliance between politics and religion as disgusting spiritural adultery. (Revelation 13:2; 17:1,2)

Think of the oppression, enslavement, wars and ethnic conflicts over the centuries that have resulted in the loss of millions of lives. can anyone honestly say that the shocking and horrifying events that have tainted the pages of human history were the normal activity of humans? Or were they the result of manipulation by unseen wicked spirit forces?

why does Jehovah allow satanic rule? Because satan contended that Jehovah was a bad ruler, and that humans would never serve him unselfishly. He allows humans to prove satan a liar, clear reproach on his name and their own. Satan in  his egotistic attitude was given up to a disapproved mental state. In his approach to eve he had evidently been contradictory in his own reasoning for he was charging God with unfair unrightous exercise of sovereignty and at the same time was evidently counting on Gods fairness: He seemed to think that God would consider himself obliged to let him live on if he proved his charge concerning the unfaithfulness of God’s creatures.

So the question is a moral one not one of might. But because of Gods invisibility and because Satan has exerted every effort to blind men’s minds Jehovahs power or even his existence has at times been questioned.

One of his  most successful methods of deception is using religious leaders who have an air of respectiblity and integrity taking on Gods name and pretending to be rightous and in harmony with God’s will. IN fact Jesus showed this to be the case, when he said  “lord lord did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name and perform many powerful works in your name?” matthew 7:22-23 What was his response to the question? “Get away from me, you workers of lawlessness.”

Satan has enormous influence, he is called “the god of this system of things.” 2 corinthians 4:4. Sometimes he even pretends to be a good spirit, when in fact his intent is wicked. He craves worship, and wants people either knowingly or unknowingly to give him such worship.

HIs three main facets of his “House” to control people is politics, false religion, big business or economics. He uses propaganda that pretty much touches everything, he takes a good thing like science and technology and philosphy and perverts it. His intentions is simply keep people so busy, divided, and distracted they do not take any note of the time and season we are in regard to Jehovahs will and purpose. He especially targets those who are serving Jehovah. His goal is to get you to stop serving him and lose out on life. you see he lost out due to his own cultivated greed and selfishness, so now he is going to be destroyed, he is so hateful, spiteful and envious of those who are headed for life, he is doing all he can to sabatoge them. If he can’t have life he doens’t want anyone else to get it either. Does this attitude sound familiar?

I have read expressions to that affect, that is not fair he has more than me, share and share alike, no one should have more than another, you cannot have a bike because your sibling isn’t old enough to have one to and it would be unfair. Do you see what I mean? Social justice is a term that basically means those with less are envious and jealous of those who have more whether it is initiative, or innovative ability, or very intelligent, or self sufficient, more honestly earned wealth, or success in some other endeavor those who are jealous dont get to have, either because they lack ability or oppertunity or just because they are lazy and havent applied themselves to anything and would rather drag others down then lift themselves up.

terms like these, the use of semantics can have powerful effects for good or bad. Enviromentalism had a good conotation in times past, it was concerned with real problems, not fabricated ones like we have today. Any good endeavor, any good purpose will be hijacked by satan one way or another to pervert it to his own ends. Even in politics, if a very good and decent person wants to make things better strives for an office of great power, he will be hijacked in some way or another to be corrupted or he will be ousted or even murdered.

He will use the need for basics of life, which is what trade and economics were originally for, (not to gain power over others or create poverty for others) has been perverted to greed is good, use of economic control over others to plunder and siphon off the wealth of others without having contributed to it in anyway. He uses his whole house to cover all the bases of human life. His house is a house of death. It is designed to destroy people spiritually, intellecturally, economically, socially and destroy their prospects for everlasting life. Its purpose is to give false hopes and dreams that lead to a deep dark pit.

He wants to convince people that they will not die but live on in some spirit realm, or he wants them to live in terror of death to the point they will murder their fellow under the false pretense that they are a threat when they are really not. Get them before they get you, this person or that group is the cause of your troubles destroy them (remember the jews? rich vs the poor war going on right now?) and you will have peace. LIes lies and more lies is all he gives. but he is a master at hiding his real intent.

Another tactic he uses quite well is the theory of evolution, when I listen to the scientists and read the books on it is sounds pretty convincing, but the reality is it is not as simple as they make it out to be, there are alot of steps required for an animal to change its spots, so to speak, a full blown change of the dna is required. This dna change is not under the control of the animal itself or even the situations the animal finds itself it is born with it and it cannot be changed and when it is changed by damage to it, it creates disease, death and a reduction in ability to survive. An animal must have it in the dna before it can adapt, it requires many many steps and changes of the dna programming for fins to turn to legs or feet to fins or scales to turn to feathers, it requires more than dropping thier eggs and leaving the young to fend for themselves and ‘evolving’ to the process of actually guarding the nest, checking and controling temp, instincts to know how and when to protect them, how to respond to the calls of their young, how to gain and keep a mate, all these have to be in the dna before hand. dna is hardware not software, it is unable, to add or substract programs. dna is so complicated and intrigut that scientists are still learning about it and have not been able to produce even a partial dna molecule from non living matter so I would hardly call it a product of accident.

I hope people will realize that evolution researchers have a foundation of assumptions before they even find evidence of something which falsifies their findings. for example thier foundation is life evolved over many millions of years, gradually changing an animal from one type to another in response to survival challenges, without devine direction, two, life came from non life as non living molecules combined and eventually became alive, and thus able to reproduce itself and change over time. Thirdly, that despite no evidence at all, (some of it even found to be fraud of what they claim they do have) humans evolved over millions of years from monkeys and apes.

now this one might be harder for people to believe, but another assumption is that life was a dog eat dog world in the past, survival of the fittest and constant battle to survive and that the planet was mostly icy, or more desert shaping the animals ‘evolutionary changes’, this could not be furthur from the truth.

Evolutionary teachings have contributed in no small measure to the strong dominating the weak, thus justifying oppressing and murdering and robbing their fellow man. Might makes right mentality. It has excused the wicked and their violence by simply stating survival of the fittest and strongest, and man is an animal and thus will ‘eat’ others to survive hence destroying morality or right and wrong. This looks like it has satans markings through and through. One would have to totally blind not to see it.

For those who are discouaged take heart Psalms 2, revelation 21:3-4, psalms 37, all speak of rightous ones inhabiting a peaceful and happy place where the wicked will not be, matt 5:5 happy are the meek (peaceable, teachable) they will inherit the earth. not inherit heaven but the earth. where man’s was put in the first place and where he was meant to live forever. Satans time of ruling will be stopped pretty soon all facets of the ‘sign’ are in evidence. matt 24, luke 13, 2 timothy 3:1-5, revelation 6, etc. what is this ‘sign” check out my next post it will be brief, to give overall view.

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21

European Commission Announces “Full Engagement” in Agenda 21.

the word I hate the most well  maybe second is the word of they were forced, they r forced to live lives of austerity, lives of burdensome taxes and regulations, that word forced. and the one thing I hate even more is their list of problems (whether true or not) and the solution is to give more power and money to other humans from other humans (who caused the problem in their eyes)who get to force their utopian ideals as if they have any more wisdom ability or even right to do so then the average individual who is minding their own business. where do they get these illusions of graduer from? well take a guess, (if you do one act of worship then it will be all yours (the kingdoms of the world) satan he has illuisons of graduer, he knows he couldn’t get away with rebellion from God in fact he expects to be destroyed as he is not smarter or stronger than Jehovah, so he has inspired people to have the same attitude as him,he has to be worshipped thorugh other humans since he cannot materialize. he knew when he was thinking about rebelling in the beginning ofhis existance as satan, that he would be executed for it, he was willling to give up his everlasting life in heaven for temporary worship of other humans his desire so consumed him he stepped out into everlasting death. this desire blinded him to the future conseqences. this is why governments do crazy and creepy and unjust things. they have been inspired by satan to believe they are superior to their fellow man who is not in positions of authority in gov. satan has to get them to believe it, he even backs them up in their false prophecies, he has to make these people believe they are somehow smarter and wiser than others and that forcing their policeis on others via genocide and robbery and murder are acceptable ways to achieve thier promised paradise. the optimum words are arrogance and force. both I hate with a passion. Jehovah never forces anyone to worship Jehovah has wonderful personality, satan does not.

 

are Jws a new religion?

This is for all those who think or say Jehovah’s witnesses are a new religion. This also shows that God has chosen people over the centuries to be his anointed followers (possibly so) since the time of the apostacy of the chruch.

They will not put up with the healthful teaching.

2 Tim. 4:3.

The apostle Paul foretold that after the death of the apostles, the Christian faith would be contaminated by false teachings. (2 Thess. 2:3, 7) Among those who would not put up with “the healthful teaching” were some in responsible positions. Paul warned elders in his day: “From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:30) The New Encyclopædia Britannica describes one major factor that led to twisted reasoning: “Christians who had some training in Greek philosophy began to feel the need to express their faith in its terms, both for their own intellectual satisfaction and in order to convert educated pagans.” An important doctrine that was given a pagan twist had to do with the identity of Jesus Christ. The Bible calls him the Son of God; the lovers of Greek philosophy insisted that he is God. w12 1/15 1:9

[SCRIPTURES QUOTED IN TODAY’S TEXT]

(2 Thessalonians 2:3)

…Let no one seduce YOU in any manner, because it will not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness gets revealed, the son of destruction.

(2 Thessalonians 2:7

) …True, the mystery of this lawlessness is already at work; but only till he who is right now acting as a restraint gets to be out of the way.

*** w12 1/15 p. 6 True Christians Respect God’s Word ***

A MARKED CONTRAST

9 The apostle Paul foretold that after the death of the apostles, the Christian faith would be contaminated by false teachings. (Read 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 7.) Among those who would not put up with “the healthful teaching” were some in responsible positions. (2 Tim. 4:3) Paul warned elders in his day: “From among you yourselves men will rise and speak twisted things to draw away the disciples after themselves.” (Acts 20:30) The New Encyclopædia Britannica describes one major factor that led to twisted reasoning: “Christians who had some training in Greek philosophy began to feel the need to express their faith in its terms, both for their own intellectual satisfaction and in order to convert educated pagans.” An important doctrine that was given a pagan twist had to do with the identity of Jesus Christ. The Bible calls him the Son of God; the lovers of Greek philosophy insisted that he is God.

10 The question was debated at a number of church councils. The issue could have been settled quite easily had the delegates given appropriate weight to the Scriptures, but most did not. In fact, the majority had made up their minds even before they arrived at the councils, and they left more deeply entrenched than ever in their positions. The canons and declarations that resulted from these meetings hardly even referred to the Scriptures.

11 Why were the Scriptures not more thoroughly considered? Scholar Charles Freeman answers that those who believed that Jesus is God “found it difficult to refute the many sayings of Jesus that suggested he was subordinate to God the Father.” As a result, church tradition and opinions of later authorities were substituted for the Gospels. To this day, many of the clergy elevate the uninspired sayings of so-called Church Fathers to a plane higher than the Word of God! If you have ever discussed the Trinity doctrine with a seminarian, you have likely noticed that.

12 True Christians Respect God’s Word ***12 A notable feature of the debates at those councils was the interference of the Roman emperors. In this regard, Professor Richard E. Rubenstein wrote respecting the Council of Nicaea: “Constantine had favored and enriched [the bishops] beyond their wildest dreams. In less than a year, the new emperor had returned or rebuilt virtually all their churches, given them back the jobs and honors taken from them . . . He had accorded Christian clergymen privileges formerly granted to pagan priests.” As a result, “Constantine was in a position strongly to influence

perhaps even to dictatethe course of events at Nicaea.” Charles Freeman confirmed: “The precedent had now been set that the emperor might intervene not only to strengthen the Church but to influence doctrine.”Read James 4:4.

13 While church dignitaries found it difficult to determine the exact identity of Jesus Christ, many of the common people had no such problem. Since they were not interested in lining their purses with the emperor’s gold or in furthering their careers in the church hierarchy, they were able to view matters more objectively, in the light of the Scriptures. And by all accounts, they did. A theologian of the period, Gregory of Nyssa, made this derisive comment regarding the common people: “Clothes dealers, money changers, and grocers are all theologians. If you inquire about the value of your money, some philosopher explains wherein the Son differs from the Father. If you ask the price of bread, your answer is the Father is greater than the Son. If you should want to know whether the bath is ready, you get the pronouncement that the Son was created out of nothing.” Yes, unlike the members of the hierarchy, many of the common people were supporting their conclusions by using God’s Word. Gregory and his associates would have done well to listen to them!

“WHEAT” AND “WEEDS” GROW TOGETHER

14 In a parable, Jesus indicated that from the first century onward, there would always be some genuine anointed Christians on the earth. He compared them to “wheat” growing among “weeds.” (Matt. 13:30) Of course, we cannot say for certain which individuals or groups belonged to the anointed wheat class, but we can confirm that there have always been some who have courageously defended God’s Word and exposed the church’s unscriptural teachings. Let us consider a few examples.

15 Archbishop Agobard of Lyons, France (779-840 C.E.), spoke out against image worship, churches dedicated to saints, and the church’s unscriptural liturgies and practices. One of his contemporaries, Bishop Claudius, also rejected church tradition and objected to prayers to saints and the veneration of relics. In the 11th century, Archdeacon Berengarius of Tours, France, was excommunicated for rejecting the Catholic teaching of transubstantiation. Moreover, he held that the Bible is superior to church tradition.

16 The 12th century saw the arrival of two lovers of Bible truth, Peter of Bruys and Henry of Lausanne. Peter resigned from the priesthood because he could not reconcile with the Scriptures the Catholic teachings of infant baptism, transubstantiation, prayers for the dead, and worship of the cross. In 1140, Peter paid for his beliefs with his life. Henry, a monk, spoke out against corrupt practices in the church as well as the unscriptural aspects of church liturgy. He was arrested in 1148 and spent the rest of his life in prison

17 About the time that Peter of Bruys was burned alive for daring to criticize the church, a person was born who would later have a powerful influence on the spread of Bible truth. His last name was Valdès, or Waldo. Unlike Peter of Bruys and Henry of Lausanne, he was a layman, but he valued God’s Word so much that he divested himself of his material goods and arranged for portions of the Bible to be translated into a language commonly spoken in southeastern France. Some were so thrilled to hear the Bible’s message in their own tongue that they too gave up their belongings and devoted their lives to sharing Bible truth with others. The church found this deeply disturbing. In 1184 these zealous men and women, later called the Waldenses, were excommunicated by the pope and banished from their homes by the bishop. This action actually served to spread the Bible’s message to other areas. Eventually, the followers of Waldo, Peter of Bruys, and Henry of Lausanne as well as other dissenters could be found in many parts of Europe. Other champions of Bible truth rose up in the centuries that followed: John Wycliffe (c. 1330-1384), William Tyndale (c. 1494-1536), Henry Grew (1781-1862), and George Storrs (1796-1879).

“THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT BOUND”

18 Try as they might, enemies of Bible truth have been unable to prevent its spread. “The word of God is not bound,” says 2 Timothy 2:9. In 1870 a group of sincere Bible students began searching for the truth. Their method of study? Someone would raise a question. They would discuss it. They would look up all related scriptures on the point, and then, when they were satisfied with the harmony of these texts, they would finally state their conclusion and make a record of it. Does it not reassure you to know that like the apostles and older men of the first century, those faithful men, our “spiritual ancestors” of the late 1800’s, were determined to align their beliefs solidly with God’s Word?

19 The Bible is still the foundation for our beliefs. With that in mind, the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses has chosen as our yeartext for 2012 the confident statement of Jesus: “Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) Since everyone who desires to gain God’s approval must walk in the truth, may all of us continually strive to be guided by God’s Word.

[Footnote]Valdès has sometimes been called Pierre Valdès or Peter Waldo, but his first name cannot be confirmed

Also it is good to know that man and woman in modern days came out of many different denominations of christendom, we took the name Jehovah’s witnesses after many left christendoms churches and the bible students understanding of the bible was clearly defined and they had cleansed themselves of false religious teachings by sticking to the bible. as time went on they made more adjustments as their understanding grew, for example jw used to celebrate christmas until we learned of the origins that are pagan and that even Jesus himself didnt celebrate it. This illustration of the wheat and the weeds was talking about the sowing of the truth and satan sowing lies. down through the ages both grew together until the time of the harvest (preaching and teaching work seperating people from the weeds the anointed) then the bringing in of the other sheep Jesus spoke about. Who are the other sheep? these are those who desire to know and worship Jehovah in truth and spirit and who stop touching the unclean things of satans world. john 10:16 matt 24:14.

 

 

some ramblings for today

Jeremiah 10:23 “I well know o Jehovah that man’s way does not belong to him, it does not belong to man who is walking to dirct his own step.”

Proverbs 4:19 “The way of the wicked is like the darkness, they do not know what makes them stumble.”

So people today without considering the bible to  much or at all are trying to decide right and wrong and how to solve problems, to make things work, morally, spritiually, economically, and even physically, like health care, how to solve the problem of everyone getting sufficient care.

It seems the more they try to solve problems the worse they make it, for example, the war on drugs, instead of making drugs hard to get they only made it more profitable and more dangerous. Obama care instead of making decent health care available to all they just now made it harder for anyone to afford decent care quickly, efficiently, and at lower costs. Unless that was their intent, keep making problems worse to keep justifying more taxes and more government intrusion and trespassing over people’s rights and liberties. They claimed that the war on terrorism is to make us safer to protect our liberties that the terrorists hate, but yet our liberty is eroding daily and our peace and security even faster.

Proverbs 6:12-19 speaks about what Jehovah hates, read those verses and see who do you see doing these things all the time both in positions of authority and among the common man whom you rub shoulders with daily?

Verse 12 says: “A useless and wicked man walks about with crooked speech.”

How often do those in positions of authority whether in politics, corporations, science, education, etc have been walking about with crooked speech?

People cannot seem to agree on right and wrong, truth or false, good or bad. So is it any wonder there are abortions, wars, poverty, broken marriages, poorly brought up children, and poor outcomes in health care for chronic illnesses like type 2 diabetes or auto immune disorders? Is it any wonder people are losing their conscience of right and wrong and are acting accordingly? Some people are so confused they become paralyzed and do nothing at all.

People are like the waves of the sea, they keep going which ever way the wind blows them. People lack true conviction because they cannot figure out what is right or wrong good or bad. And who are the winds (outside of Satan being responsible for stirring up the sea of rebellious mankind)?  They are what I like to call ‘creepy faces’ the ones who claim to and people look up to, to teach them what is the best way to solve the problems or handle different situations but who basically do not know what they are saying.  who are actually serving up poisoned waters (teachings that poison peoples minds and hearts bitter lies they drink up that moves them to do bad or harmful things. all the while thinking they are doing right when they are not.

Habakkuk explains just how I feel, probably how you feel too,

Hab 1:3-4, 13 just some of what he asks Jehovah. “Why do you make me witness wrongdoing and why do you tolerate oppression, why are destruction and violence before me? and why do quarreling and conflicts abound?” you see he was human just like you and me, he had the same feelings too about the injustice going on at that time which we see repeated again in our time.  VS 4 “so law is paralyzed and justice i never carried out for the wicked surround the righteous, that is why justice is perverted.”

Awe the world going from bad to worse. yet people still insist that they can reform the world into a peaceful and prospers place, but alas man has been trying to do that for thousands of years, the problem is not how to solve the problems that we see, most know what the solution is, we need to bring forth Justice and law and everyone must work to obey and protect it, but alas, people have become confused about what justice and law is. Why? Because they forget we are not designed to rule over ourselves without Devine guidance and protection. People are focusing to much value on human endeavors to solve problems, subdue wicked and bad people who interfere with the good people, they are in effect saying we worship man or the creature, rather than the creator.

This is why man will never solve the problems of  the world, because the wicked people and demons are the problem, along with our sinful natures they exploit for their own glory and enrichment. It is not the method of system it is the controller of the system that is the problem. Only Jehovah can remove the wicked (and decide who is wicked and not) and remove sin and death. ONly he has the wisdom, the knowledge, the authority, the balance of love, justice, power and wisdom that is supreme and we could never match ever.

Another thing i was ramling on about in my head is how many times we waste time, energy, money, and resist improvments under the false idea that we are somehow parasites on planet earth or that some are too greedy or selfish to be trusted with private property or running their own affairs (as long as they are not directly harming others and are allowing them the same freedom) but somehow that a group calling themselves government are some how more moral or something. Take the situation of the bonner bridge I have been reading about, the enviromentalists want it gone, but don’t say it in so many words, they just recite some fake enviromental damage they are doing having  the bridge there. so instead of using funds to build the new bridge they expected to build and funds were already set aside for it, they have to use it to fight ‘creepy faced’ enviromentalists who use taxpayer funds, hence they have unlimited spending and time to keep everyone else suspended and broke, to stop the rebuild of hte bridge because for some reason they want to cut off the outer banks to people.

So now they are suffering some serious safty issues of that bridge and they had to close it down for serious repairs, if they could of built the new bridge they wanted when they wanted it and had the funds they could dismantled the old bridge. instead of wasting time, and depleting their funds fighting every little frivilous lawsuit based on endangerd species act, the clean water acts and the you name it act. What is funny sad about the whole situation, is the bridge and people are not harming any crittor there, the enviromentalists are being paid by gov and corporations using taxpayer funds to literally dry up the economics of the outer banks so they can come in and make it part of the wildlife humans must keep out project for pennies on the dollar, basically robbing those people and the visitors who enjoy it.

it seems to me it is a land grab. using phoney science and enviromentalism  to do it. Get around due process as it were, and what is sad, is the government and courts are allowing it. Does anyone smell conspiracy to rob people of land, liberty, life and happiness? humm smells rotten to me. what did you just read? Jehovah hates lying, hands shedding innocent blood and accumulating riches that does not belong to him.

it is such a pretty and enjoyable place no wonder they want to steal it from the people outside of consitutional requirements. they can’t stand the fact the common folk actually get to enjoy nature, remember they consider us a plague to nature and should never touch it see it let alone enjoy it.  especially since they cannot do so because they don’t want to rub shoulders with us common folk, we are so dirty in their eyes. But remember the real owners sees is all and is making judgements and purposes to reclaim the earth for all who love him. isaiah 65:21-25

 

the pure language

language is what you and I have to communicate, when we can’t communicate nothing is accomplished not even understanding, peace, friendship or spiritural or technological or medical or progress in sciences and innovation that benefits us all. when we can’t communicate and wish to we need a interperter, so if I want to learn about spanish I ask someone who speaks it and can speak english too so they can teach me. wouldn’t you?

so if you want to understand the bible you must understand it’s language otherwise your lost and will not benefit from the bible. I have found understanding it’s language to be exciting because then you can see the physical manifestation of it’s words prophecies and fruitages of its counsel.I have found in my ministry that people are confused by alot of the defintions of words in the bible, and understanding the prophecies and symbolisms.

I want to share some terms and defintions of what we as Jehovah’s wintesses have learned through heavy research and some serious prayer.  it is important if you can to have more than one version of the bible, like king james or new world translation or new standard or some other bible you have confidence in to reference.

I found there is confusion due to the word “coming” which many are saying they are waiting for Jesus second coming. some translations interpret the word “parasia” not sure of the exact spelling as coming, which actually means of the age or presence, matt 24:3 which conveys the idea of a long period of time not a coming and quick departure. He gave us a long list of things to look for and part of this included him casting satan to the earth before armegeddon which means he has to stay in heaven to do this. if you read this list you will see that much work has to be done before Christs millianium reign can begin.

What is a Kingdom? anyone going to look up this word in a dictionary and not take my word for it? a kingdom is a government, and a government has subjects, a ruler, and administrator of the kingdoms purposes. So I ask you how can you have a government in your heart? Paul spoke about being part of this government as he said he ran successfully and was looking forward to going to heaven to be a coruler with christ. Rather Jesus referred himself as in their midst he was future king and was in the people’s midst at that time not that a kingdom is in our hearts. REvelation 14:1-3. Dan 2:1-44, Revelation 21:3-4 matthew 6:9-10

I will keep the rest brief, here are some interesting terms and defintions to help you get more out of your bible reading.

waters: people in general, information or facts or lack there of, rebellious humans, isaiah 57:20, jude 4-13. Ephesians 5:26 Revelation 17:1,15

I know there is confusion too about the scripture at 2 peter 3:10-13 which describes the heavens and earth being made new and the old being destroyed. now remember if you read something in the bible it must not conflict with other scriptural references somewhere else in the bible, because if you read ecclesiates 1:4 it says the earth will remain forever, and psalms 46 talks about the earth changing and the mountains toppling into the sea (now i ask you do you think the literal mountains toppled into the sea?) one part says he raised his voice and the earth melted, so i ask you again did the earth go anywhere did it melt? also genesis 11:1 spoke of hte earth as having one language and one set of words,does the earth have a language? don’t people have a language and sets of words? this new earth is rightous people, earth that is destroyed is wicked people. Remember the scritpure in revelation about the sea being no more? they used this phrase in the movie the titanic when they were all hanging onto the priest guy and he was quoting the scriptures in a prayer,he said the sea is no more, remember isaiah said in 57:20 the wicked are like the sea that is unable to calm down, it is this sea the scripture is talking about. AWWW dont you just love bible language.

there is alot more like rocks, caves, ships, burning mountain, water turned to blood, and serpents seed, new jerusalum (most of these are found in revelation. Plagues is another. I would go over them now but I do not want to overwhelm everyone and I am tired, fighting off a stupid sinus infection and it is taking antibiotics a few days to really get it cleared up. right now suffering a terrible headache to go with it. but hopfully for those who love the bible this will be interesting reading the sited scriptures you all can go to jw.org too for more.

 

thanks to my followers

thanks to my followers who like my blog, I am glad I am putting stuff on here that isn’t boring.  my brother is really sweet telling me how much he likes my blog and consider the information so enjoyable he brought it up on his own, thanks Jeff. your just to sweet to me.

I am glad your surgury went so well,  as for my other followers thanks again, remember I am not a genius (as per my brothers comment), I am just a mirror. what is a mirror and why would I compare myself as such?

I thought about this today, a mirror reflects whatever light hits it and images it reflects. as a new born baby we are born with just the basics of hunger, ability to learn things, and natural fears of falling etc, these basics we are all born with, a clean slate as it were otherwise.

so for me I want to reflect the qualitis and knowledge and wisdom of Jehovah, he is the smartest person in the universe and the wisest ever and i would call him a suppperrrrrrrrrr genius!!! (ever watch wily coyote and the roadrunner?)so what does this have to do with mirrors? well we are all a clean slate we can decide what light and images we want to reflect for others to see (and even see ourselves too). we choose who we want to reflect, imitate and show the world. Think about the expressions, you have a bright outlook on life, your a ray of sunshine when I am down (or as a song says I have sunshine on a cloudy day, when it is cold outside I have the month of may) your a real downer to be around, or some one woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or like the poor donkey on winnie the poo with a dark cloud falling him around and his face reflects gloominess.

So who do you reflect? how do others perceive you? (well those who know you well)who do you want to reflect? I seen some guy wanted to reflect tigers, why? dont know but his whole body was tattoed stripps his face and he had his teeth done with fangs. so what does such a person reflect about the kind of person they are? why do he admire tigers so much to want to be one? (to reflect as a mirror that animal?)only he and those around him can answer that one. but if I run into someone like that my first reation would be like weird and then I would cringe away from him because tigers are predators. Simply because he is reflecting what he is worshipping.

So any reflection on my part of showing forbearnace or kindness or understanding is simply because I worship Jehovah. I am going to say this and hope it doesn’t sound weird but I think Jehovah is awesome and  find it puzzling when people do not want to learn about him after you hear so many positive comments by non witnesses about the witnesses. They really admire jw are honest on the job, care about their neighbors, take jesus word seriously about preaching and teaching door to door and home bible studies (which are free by the way)honest in all their dealings, do not leach off others, do not steal and are kind to people. And refuse to take up arms against their fellow man even at the threat of death for disobedience to governments on this point. Always remember if someone has a gut reation of seemingly lack of desire to kill others for the sake of protecting america from some enemy, if a witness wont kill another person in another country who might kill them (so the gov tries to sell people on)they wont kill you. So think about that for a moment. You wont have to worry about a JW murdering you during times of chaos (think rwanda).

So we have a choice whom do you want to reflect? Is it a person who deserves your admiration? Are the qualities you want virtuous and kind or logical or of sound wisdom or reason.?

christendom indicted

howdy gang, or shall I say fellow living souls on the land, or maybe living on terra or the place called earth, language is a funny thing don’t you think? This past few days I have been doing research on the book of isaiah, reading it and getting more information about it, came across some fitting information that fits our day perfectly. Isaiahs day mirrors our day almost perfectly. How? well he prophesized during the time of Uzziah,Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, which was a good king.

Little backround, he prophesized during a time of political unrest, religous hypocrisy, judicial corruption and oppression of the poor. Even during reigns of faithful kings like Jotham alters of false gods could still be seen on many hilltops. (does this description ring a bell with anyone? lol) Under unfaithful kings the situation was even worse. Can you imagine what life was like then and how one could manage to avoid being eaten (figuratively) and still manage a fairly decent life? The international situation was gloomy too, (kind of reminescent of today don’t you think?) Moab, Edom and philista stood meanacing at Judahs borders. Hum, iraq or syria anyone? humm I have heard how technology has made the earth a small place, makes sense.

Furthur north syria threatened Judahs peace and cruel Assyria was on the lookout to expand its power, it had taken the northern nation of isreal in Isaiahs time, and almost destroyed Judah. Jerusalum was like the last stand for the Isrealites as a nation. Assyria was the second world power of bible history, even tho there were other world powers the bible focused only on those that affected God’s chosen people, his worshippers.

The situation in Isaiahs time is very similar to conditions today, in our time human leaders have turned their backs on Jehovah and his enthroned King Jesus Christ, (speaking of those in christendom) in fact they have turned thier backs on the bible period, it’s principles and laws and truths. The leader of Christendom have deceived their flocks, such leaders claim to serve God but in truth most of them promote the gods of the world. (enviromentalism? capitalism? Communism?sunlike leaders?sports stars?promoinent individuals? Philosphers? Science? Self? United nations? Money? Entertainment? etc) In one place after another Christendom religion has been involved in wars and civil strife that features ethnic cleansing and other horrors. Rather than take a stand for bible morality many chruches are either winking at or actively supporting immoral practices like fornication (just watch the movies on tv and see what I mean) and homosexuality. 

 Isaiah 1:4: “woe to the sinful nation the people heavy with error and evildoing seed ruinous sons, they have left Jehovah they have treated the Holy One of Isreal with disrespect they have turned backwards.”

Things were so bad Jehovah gave furthur descriptions of how he viewed them, Isa 1:10: “Hear the word of Jehovah you dictators of Sodom give ear to the law of our God you people of gomorrah.” The Isrealites were doing so many detestable things, you can read it yourself in the rest of these beginning chapters. in fact He told them he was tired of their festivels and sacrifices, their prayers, that their hands were full of blood shed, but vs 16 and 17 tells them what is required to get redeemed, “Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean, remove the badness of your dealings from in front of my eyes, cease to do bad, learn to do good, search for justice, set right the oppressor, render judgement for the fatherless boy and plead the cause of the widow.” They needed to repent turn around and stop doing what they were doing, change their attitude and start doing what Jehovah says is right and just.

verses 18-20 shows how if people become right with God he would forgive in a very large way and their sins he would remember no more. The rest of the chapter deals with how God prophesized there would be a people who would come to love him and serve him faithfully and bring glory to him. Chapter 2 continues on with this theme what is amazing to me is while I heard how the united nations is really anti bible anti god by most of the members they still managed to put part of a bible quote on the building (the second half)

Isaiah 2:4, “And he will certainly render judgement among the nations and set matters striaght respecting many peoples and they will have to beat their swords into plowshears and their spears into pruning shears, nation will not lift up sword against nation neither will they learn war anymore.”

While I agree with stopping wars, desperately so, I found it disheartening that they put this on the building fooling bible lovers of the land of christendom teaseing them that the UN would bring this about. And I find it very shameful to say the least that the leaders of christendom, especially religious leaders, advocating that this was Gods kingdom on earth when it was first founded in 1945. What blasphmy! they have just implicated Jehovah as a party to violence and massive blood shed and slavery, Wow, and all this without a trial or fair hearing, talk about unjust due process.

In fact the judges of isreal and the leaders were so bad Jehovah declared them to be the scummy dross that comes off of the valuable silver when cleaned, hence he declared them to be discarded in due time.

Isaiah 2 also talks about how in the later part of the days, which is our day, Gods worship would be restored and many willing ones would not only go up to his mountain (elevated worship over all other religions) but that they would invite still others to join (preaching and teaching work) And they would learn his ways and his laws, they would not look ot mans governments to solve the problems we have nor to give the laws we need to have true peace and security.

Jehovah reestablished pure worship and united those who yearned to worship him, this was foretold in isa 2:1-4 and Micah 4:1-3. in 1919 the anointed remnant (anointed as in to be corulers with christ) began a bold worldwide witnessing campaign that raised Jehovahs worship on high, overshadowing christendom (always remember christendom is not the same thing as christianty)which has been derelict in her duties in feeding Jehovahs sheep with pure waters of truth. IN fact revelation calls the waters of christendom wormwood.  In the 1930’s it became evident that the other sheep were being gathered in (other sheep jesus spoke about in John 10:16 that had a earthly hope, (psalms 37)Matt 5:5).

These thoughts are probably new to alot of people, that is okay, that is what research and study is all about, gaining more understanding. You know it is funny  I have read Isaiah many times in my systematic study over the years covering about 3 or 4 chapters of the bible every night (or most nights)but each time i do so I learn or relearn something new. it helps with connecting the dots too. Another little factoid about Isa 2:1-4, wars, this is the one constant human kind has had to deal with, it is a plague, a very catagious plague that spreads like a virus from one generation to the next. no generation has ever been free from wars except for very short periods of time.

I read this statistic i didnt know, According to world watch magezine during the 2000 years prior to the 20th century it took an average of 50 years for one million people to die in wars, during this century the length of time it took on average for a million people to die in war was one year. Amazing if you ask me.

I was just thinking as I typed this, imagine how much progress has been postponed because of war, think about it a moment, do you suppose if the scientists who developed technology and weapons for wars would spend their talents and skills into peaceful endeavors what would have happend by now? it is not hard to imagine we would of been able to beam ourselves from here to another country in seconds, (like star trek?) we could of eradicted hunger, solve most pollution problems, we would not be driving using combustion engines, probably would of developed energy sources off the grid, free to all, that would run on water or (I was told that in times past the cars could run on alcohol you make yourself) so maybe prohibition of alcohol was due to this and not because people got drunk and they decide to go ahead and lift the ban once gasoline was a  energy source for cars built specifically for it? Imagine having a trillion dollars a year just in the usa for innovating and solving pollution problems making life easier and cheaper for everyone? a trillion dollars, that is a lot of dough, much could of been accomplished with that much money, not counting the billions spent on wars on poverty, drugs and the like.

So do anyone of you out there really believe the rulers who claim humanitarian ideals are for real? do their actions match their words? if they really cared about the poor, the downtrodden would they bomb the heck out of their countrys water systems, food systems, roads, bridges and their houses and innocent bystanders in the name of saving them? Do they really want to save them or are they just interested in robbing them? Just look at the rico laws, (look up rico) they have used every excuse in the name of justice to trample on justice costing billions in lost homes, lives, freedom, property, jobs, all in the name of saving you and me from criminals.  Isaiah is not a out of date book, I am learning this more and more, Romans 15:4 “For all things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction that through our endurance and through the comfort of the scriptures that we might have hope.”

The information of Isaiah is important otherwise it would not be in the bible. So if you decide to read it yourself which I encourage highly, remember some of it applied to isreal but much applies to our days as it is full of prophecy of the last days we are in, and some of the things in there are symbolic, like mountains representing governments, trees, prominent individuals like leaders, both poltical and religious, things like that. Personality traits represented as certain types of animals, like lions and wolves being predatory on their fellow man, or vicious that sorta thing. Lambs representing meekness and mildness, sometimes depending on context Eygpt represents all governments of the world, as we know that Eygpt is mentioned in revelation but we also know that Eygpt as a world power declined thousands of years ago.   As I do more research Iwill post more factoids about it, doing this not only helps others but it helps me remember what I learned and read, as I have gotten older I have notice a problem with recall especially when my hormones are at low ebb. Yikes!

 

what was the original sin

Hi there, how is everyone doing today? hope it is sunny there for it is rainy here, but looks like the sun might just come out. For anyone interested and who probably have wondered what was the original sin that got Adam and Eve evicted from the garden of eden (hint: it wasnt sex otherwise how can they have babies as God commanded them to have them).

Adam and Eve had everything they needed to be happy, they had a beautiful garden of pleasure (Eden) they have enough to eat had wonderful activities together, no wickedness at all, no fear of death, no sickness as they would never die or get sick. All the commands God gave them were positive commands, what to do, not what not to do, except one prohibition. this prohibition would not cause any hardship of any kind. They could eat of all the trees of the garden and no doubt it had trees of every kind with some of the most delicious fruit imaginable. Their actions and thoughts would naturally be pure and clean and they were happy, they had not depression, or guilt or fear of the future. The garden had everything that was delightful to the eye and the animals were at peace and man had no fear of them harming him (imagine swimming with a great white shark under such circumstances).

What would happen if they disobeyed the prohibition? They would die, did anyone ever read they would die and go to heaven anywhere in the bible at all? Did they understand death? Yes, animals still died, they knew they were only around a short time, and that they didn’t exist before, they understood death very well, other wise Jehovah would be unjust to punish them with something they didn’t understand and far be it for the true God to act unjustly.

But some creepy angel decided (by meditating on it a while) that he wanted to be worshipped, a very selfish desire, he coveted something that didn’t belong to him and he had no right to, he developed a big head basically, so to get what he coveted, he decided to deceive eve (why not adam?)first, because she was the newer of the two and less experienced. So he twisted what God had said, and as a result she believed him over Jehovah who had never abused her, misled her or lied to her. And Adam followed suit and the rest is history.

But why did taking a fruit of a tree result in such a miserable world we live in, it was such a small disobedient act?  Well this sin reflected this lack of faith and love for the creator, it was a rebellion of self determination or independance of God, sin means to miss the mark, the standard Jehovah set for man, a limit where man could go and go no furthur morally speaking. today you see the results of everyone deciding what is right and wrong, you see the controversy, abortion is right, no it is wrong, homosexulaity is right, no wrong, obesity is a disease, no it is a moral failing, children born disabled is punishement for the parents for doing some wrongs (heard some politician guy say this) So what was so special about this tree of knowledge of good and bad?

I will quote someone who backs up what I understand it to be, THE JERUSALUM BIBLE in footnote on Genesis 2:17 comments concerning the tree of knowledge.  “This knowledge is a privelege which God reserves to himself and which by sinning is to lays hands on, 3:5, 22, it dos not mean ominiscience which fallen man does not possess, nor is it moral discrimination for unfallen man had it and God could not refuse it to a rational being, it is the power of deciding for himself what is good and what is evil and of acting accordingly, a claim to complete moral independence by which man refuses to recognize his status as a created being, the first sin was an attack on God’s soverignty a sin of pride.”

I have told some this and they didn’t believe that the tree represented God’s right to rule, to set the standards of what is right and wrong. Who can you think of is better qualified to decide what is good for man or not? I would put my happiness in his hands before any human wouldnt you? Heck even before I listen to myself, I can’t be trusted to rule over myself successfully, (sounds weird to say I know).  Surly satan would like you to think human wisdom is the way to true freedom, but he lies. If you dont worship Jehovah your worshipping satan and that is how he likes it. his biggest weapon against man is deception, making people believe they are serving God but are not. sad really, The apostle paul said you can recognize a servant of God or not by their actions. What are they doing? what is their attitude say about war? mans governments? marriage? honesty? poor people? foreigners? violence? How do they act towards others? what is their attitude and actions in the workplace? What do they like to talk about? Do they indicate to you that they love God or not?

Are they honest in the workplace? do they steal, or lie, or do they have fits of anger over small things? do they respect the laws of their country? do they go by the bibles principles when there is a difference of opinion like issues of abortion, or medical treatments or care of animals and children? Do they treat others like they want to be treated. do they respect the privacy of others? do they meddle in other people’s personal affairs? Do they think it is okay to lie cheat steal or kill in some circumstances but not others? are they consistent? Do they look to man’s governments to solve mankinds problems? You can tell who or what people worship? I look at people who get all hyped up over football or baseball teams and rooting for one team over another, and talking about it and watching it on tv and prioritizing their team or games over more important things like taking care of their children or family obligations as worshipping competition and human athletes.

Anyway sin is starting to become out of date in this day and age, and that is partly the fault of the religious leaders of christendom, who claim to know the bible and represent God of the bible but who belie the claim by advocating self determination and human governments as the pancrea for mankinds problems, thus elevating Satans house as the solution to the problems satan caused in the first place (talk about the fox guarding the hen house scenario) and this is partly the fault of the government rulers who do not pracitce what they preach who break the moral laws all in the name of obeying the moral laws. And now just like physical laws they aer breaking the moral laws and are reaping the consequences. these moral laws are just as sure as the physical laws.

Continuing the quote of this article I read, partial quote, “he can never escape the fact that he is a subject to many things including both physical and moral laws, if he tried to ignore these laws he soon comes into a clash with natural forces resulting in sickness or calamity or he encroaches upon the rights of others and meets with trouble.” So people wonder why Governements are getting worse and the sufferings and injustice they cause is getting worse. They are breaking these moral laws (and some physical as well)

So as long as sin rules over our bodies and minds, it is a battle to do right (apostle paul speaks about this struggle) romans 7:14-25.

So sin is something that cannot be eradicated thorugh our own effort hence the need for the ransom sacrifice Jesus gave, but this is for another post. as long as man is sinful (and satan is taking advantage of it to corrupt people beyond reform and he is a creep to boot) peace and security and paradise will never materialize.

“Our father in the heavens let your name be santified (hollowed) let your kingdom come and let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.” matthew 6:9-10 takes on more meaning when we learn about sin and it’s affects. I want you all to name just one human who can overcome satan and his propaganda without devine help? Any takers? Hence the need for this kingdom (government by God)and for his will to be done (if it was being done in the man governments would we need to even pray this anymore?)if the united nations is God’s expression of his kingdom on earth (christendoms words not mine) then why is it so corrupted, cruel and why is it breaking all of Gods moral laws? Do you suppose the leaders of chrsitendom are lying? why would they do that? the same reason satan did, they want something they have no right to, they want to be kings. Gross sin is really manifest in organizations, and in another post I will touch on the reason for that. Just think the expression I have heard many times over the years, “It is good to be King.” why? the king can make whatever laws he wants and take property from others at will and gain more wealth and power then anyone can ever achieve. So let us not be overcome by sin nor be seduced to crave what satans world has to offer, it is temporary and will not lead to happiness and peace for anyone. How?

this is for another post, see you all later,
