The Satanic poison of Valentine’s day

Here comes another pagan feast pretending to be Christian! Yes it’s Valentine’s Day, or should we say “Saint” Valentine’s Day? Time to fornicate in spirit or otherwise, all because of a Roman “Catholic” so-called “saint”. This is just another example of the Vatican-Freemason hijacking of the calendar. The tawdry little festival of “Cupid” known as Valentine’s Day is promoted across the globe at the American taxpayers’ expense and in the mass-media owned by the Vatican and Freemason elites.

What’s the game? you might ask. Well simple. All these pagan ceremonies and festivals were adopted by the Vatican in olden times to mix paganism with Christianity so as to form a single, splurge “One World Religion”. All the backbone of Christianity and all its high moral standards could then be drowned in a sea of religious gobbledeygook. The Protestant Freemasons came along later, and having dumped true Protestantism along the road, they took up the pagan, so-called Christian, ceremonies of the Vatican.

Naturally, the sex-drugs culture of the pagans went hand-in-hand with the ceremonies and festivals. Another excuse for a holiday, another excuse for a fornicating little party. So the patriarchal, moral, healthy anti-fornication, anti-drug culture of real Christianity was rejected, if not outlawed altogether. You can see that process still operating today.

So, what’s the details about the little “Cupid” feast, Valentine’s Day? Well the “venerable” (so-called) Bede, an early Roman “Catholic” psycho-scholar (around AD 700), tells us the facts about the Cupid-feast. The record is found in his book De Temporum Ratione, chapter 12. He says there was an ancient ceremony in pagan Rome, called the Februatio, the “Purging” or “Purification”, in the early part of the month February. February is when the sun is in the astrological sign of Pisces, the Two Fishes whom the pagans identified with Venus and Cupid, and that’s where our little nude demon Cupid comes into the picture. When the Roman “Catholic” cult incorporated this pagan ceremony into their “liturgy” they changed it to the feast of the “Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary”. But most people, of course, forget that now, ‘cos the Virgin Mary has gone out of the window along with virgins generally. They only remember it as the “Cupid feast”.

The pagans called it “Purification” (ha-ha) because they believed they were “purged” of their lustful sins and excesses (which were many) by the celebration of these idol rites, accompanied with sexual orgies (strange way of “purifying” oneself!).

There was an actual, original “purification” of Mary and that was a different thing altogether — it was the sacrifice offered in the Temple at Jerusalem, as ordained by God in the Law of Moses, at the close of forty days after the birth of her wonderful virgin-born child, the Messiah Jesus. All Israelite new mothers did this sacrifice, after the birth of a child. Mary’s child Jesus, of course, was not born in the winter, and Mary did not offer her purification-sacrifice in February, as the Roman “Catholics” claim she did. This is so because Jesus was born around April (April 2 is the earliest historical date for His birth), when the shepherds were out in the fields looking after the new-born Spring lambs. So Mary came to the Temple to offer her purification-sacrifice 40 days after that, say around the middle of May.

The original Hebrew “purification” was turned now into the pagan February “Purification” orgy. It was a typical con by the Roman pseudo-Christians — take a pagan ceremony, find some remote verbal link with the Bible and claim the pagan and Biblical ceremonies were the same. The excuse was that the pagans would thereby be “converted” to Christianity without any undue burden of actually changing their lifestyles. The pagan multitudes (as well as the Vatican priests) of Rome could still practice their Februatio sex-orgies, but could now be called “Christians” by the “church” hierarchy. They could claim they were celebrationg the “Purification” (Februatio) of the Virgin Mary! What a wonderful “conversion” it was, the “conversion” of ancient Rome!

The days of February ran on to the 13th and then began the 9 days of real fun for pagan Romans — yes, the worship of dead ancestors! This was a “purification” festival of the typical February variety, a time to “purify” the soul by getting right with the spirits of the departed. Now all the earliest heretics, who mixed paganism with Christianity, celebrated the birth of their sun-god “Osiris-Jesus” on January 6th (the day Osiris the sun-god was “born” at the winter solstice in Egypt in the ancient eastern pagan system). Since Jesus’ mother Mary went through her historical purification ritual in the Temple 40 days after Jesus’ birth, these eastern heretics now dogmatically claimed Mary was “purified” on the 14th February, that is, 40 days inclusive after the sun-god’s “birth” on January 6th, quite opposite to the historical facts. So they combined the memory of her Hebrew “purification” with the worship of dead ancestors (also conveniently called the “purification”) that was going on at that time of year in Rome. They began to worship the Virgin Mary, as a dead spirit, using the same candles the pagans used to pray to their dead relatives. The 14th of February was now called the “Day of Saint Mary”. They celebrated a “mass” (meal for the dead) for Mary, with lighted candles, and marched through the city with these candles in their hands, just as the pagans ate meals with candles at the tombs of their ancestors, and marched through the streets with candles in their hands. It was later called “Candlemas” for that reason.

One little extra here — out of “respect” for their dead ancestors the Romans shut all the temples during the nine days of this feast of the dead (called the Parentalia or “Ancestors” festival, lasting from the 13th to the 21st February), and also did not allow anyone to get married during that time. Obviously it would not be appropriate to have a happy marriage feast lighting up the town when everyone was supposed to be remembering their dead ancestors. So this was a festival in which marriage-vows were forbidden. If any “love” was going on, it was not the knot-tying variety. See a resemblance there to something? Bede says the “Christians” (meaning the Vatican cult) dressed up this pagan festival by saying the “virgins” (unmarried women) procesing through the streets with their candles (for the dead spirits) were the “virgins” of Christ’s parable of the wise virgins: they likewise had lighted candles in their hand, and were “waiting for their bridegroom”! This was definitely a Cupid-fest for the unmarried, especially when there were many other pagan feasts going on concurrently (like the Lupercalia festival on the 15th of February), with party-going and drunken revelry at its height.

Here you need to know a little about the Vatican’s “virgins”. These were the “nuns” or “sisters”. They said they were “waiting for their bridegroom”, meaning, in the Bible sense, for the heavenly Bridegroom, Christ. The catch was, the local Vatican priest said he WAS Christ! So really these “virgins” were the fornicating prostitutes of the Vatican priesthood. Now, let’s examine the Virgin Mary theory underpinning this debauchery. The real historical “purification” of Mary was the ceremony in the Temple at Jerusalem by which the ritual defilement of childbirth was taken off, so the couple (in this case Joseph and Mary) could now have married sex together. Well, of course, that was contrary to the Vatican’s cult-dogma which stated Mary had ALWAYS REMAINED A VIRGIN, because she was a “divine” spirit, untainted with original sin. According to their twisted idea she was the “Bride of God” only, and never, never, had sex with Joseph, oh goodness, no. This is opposite to what the Bible says, as that tells us Mary had sex with Joseph after the birth of Jesus (Matthew’s Gospel ch. 1 verse 25). And likewise, incidentally with those Vatican “virgins” who worshiped Mary: they (supposedly) “always stayed virgin” and were the “Brides of Christ” only — but, as we have just said, Christ was in this case the Vatican priest. They worshiped Mary as a dead divine spirit in the “Purification” and, like her, were “dead” in the sense that they died to the world — or so they claimed. Unfortunately they died to the normal sinful life of Rome and were reborn into the even more sinful life of cultic delusion. Still today closed-order nuns go through a symbolic burial in a coffin when they take their final vows. So really we have in this festival the celebration of pseudo-Christian fornication. Yes, precisely.

The Vatican cult hit a little problem with the date of their “Purification” feast. They celebrated Christ’s birth 12 days earlier than the original heretics, who were mainly Near-Eastern in origin. The ancient Roman date for the winter solstice, the “birth” of the sun-god, was December 25th, not January 6th as in the East. Therefore Mary’s “Purification” (40 days after Jesus’ birth) fell 12 days earlier too according to the Vatican’s theory. So the Vatican switched the date of “Saint Mary Day” 12 days back from the 14th February to the 2nd February. This was still within the month of February and therefore under the dominion of the “infernal powers” according to Roman paganism. They allowed the common people to continue celebrating their Cupid-feast on what they now called “Valentine’s Day” February 2nd. The Eastern Roman cult in Armenia stuck with the original system, and to this day celebrate the “Purification of Mary” on the 14th. They still believe it “purges out” evil spirits and ensures sexual fertility.

Every day in the calendar was dedicated to some so-called saint by the heretics, and this day, the 14th February, happened to be the “saint”-day of someone called Valentine. He was a Christian martyr — or maybe not really a martyr, but someone just executed by the authorities for his crimes. He had been beheaded on the 14th February in the long distant past. Now they could call it “Saint” Valentine’s day. So it stands today. The dubiousness of this supposed “saint’s” character is even admitted by modernist Roman “Catholic” scholars, and they have dropped the name Valentine altogether from the latest church-calendars. But of course they haven’t dropped the so-called “Purification of Mary” feast, which is the real deal on this mixed pagan-Christian Cupid-fest.

Because the Vatican cult in Rome had changed the feast-day, they needed another pagan festival with lamps and torches to “authenticate” their pagan-cum-“Christian” celebration, and there wasn’t one on the new date of February 2nd in Rome. But just when it was needed, the Sicilians came to the rescue. In Sicily the pagans had a festival at the beginning of February: this was a memorial feast commemorating the time the earth-goddess Ceres searched for her missing daughter, Cora, who had been raped by the god of Hell, Pluto (Pluto being the patron-god of February). The goddess Ceres was believed to have searched for her daughter with torches in her hand to pierce the darkness of the night, lit from the underworld fires of Mount Etna, and thus torches were carried ever afterwards in that ceremony, called the Amburbalia, the “Procession round the city”. So the Roman pseudo-Christians now said Mary was the same as the pagan “Great Goddess” and — hey presto! the lamps of Mary’s “Purification” festival were just the updated version of the lamps, lights and torches of Ceres!

Now, Satanism works by spells (magic words and formulas) and by ceremonies (magic acts). If a person participates in these he binds himself by evil forces. That means: just to take part in a Satanic ceremony is to bind your soul in bondage to demons.

A Holy-Ghost filled Christian, of course, would never take part in such a thing, or use magic words to achieve a stated purpose. So, Satan being aware of these facts he gets Christians to take part in his Satanic rituals by deception. One trick is to invite Christians to a festival or party which is actually a Satanic ritual-feast. That’s what the Apostle Paul said the Israelites did in their Desert Wanderings — they committed idolatry just by sitting down to the feast of Baal-Peor (a Satanic idol), and by getting up after the meal and playing “games” at the party.

Paul says this about it: 1 Corinthians 10 7 “Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Notice Paul calls these backslidden Israelites “idolaters” because they “sat down to eat” and “rose up to play”. Once the Israelites got into the “party-spirit” they started to get drunk and commit fornication with the sexy-dressed girls of the worshipers of Baal-Peor. Notice it was not necessary for them actually to worship the idol physically — they just “went to the party”. Well, yes. That’s exactly what Satan does now using the so-called “Christian” festivals which were created by the pagan Vatican cult known as the “Roman Catholic Church”. He gets Christians to come to the party at his Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween festivals, which are all pagan Roman Satanic feasts dressed up with “Christian” names and titles. So in the Name of the Lord Jesus, keep away from them!

Notice how these pagan feasts were deliberately chosen to imitate, in a Devilish fashion, the ancient feasts of Israel, which happened at these same times of year:

Hanukkah = Christmas (Jewish 25th Kislev = “Christian” 25th December)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Birth of the Roman sun-god, Sol Invictus, in the depths of the Winter Underworld. So it was dated to the time of the Winter Solstice (December 25), when the sun is lowest in the sky, after which the sun increases in strength (“growing after the birth”). Please note, in this case, even the Jewish feast (Hanukkah, the feast of “lights”) was a copy of the pagan Greek festival of “lights”, the Dionysia festival, celebrating the birth of the Greek sun-god Dionysus at the Winter Solstice, and was never ordained by God in the Law of Moses. It was slipped into Judaism a couple of hundred years or so before Christ, when the Greek dictator Antiochus Epiphanes “paganized” the Temple for a few years, as prophesied by Daniel 11:30.

Purim = Valentine’s Day (Jewish 13th Adar = “Christian” 13th/14th February)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of Dead Ancestors, the “Purification” of the Parentalia, changed later into the Amburbalia or Search of the goddess Ceres for Cora. Cora was the moon-goddess of the dark winter nights who “disappeared into the Underworld” at this time of year, when the dark nights get shorter. Cora was called Despoina, “Mistress”, or Madonna, and was therefore equated with Mary, who had those same pagan titles in Romanist “theology”. Six months later, as the nights grow dark again, and the winter moon becomes more prominent, Cora “ascended” up to heaven: so likewise Mary is blasphemously said to have been “assumed” (taken up) to heaven, after a complete 6 months following the “Day of Saint Mary” (which was originally 14th February) on the “Feast of the Assumption” (August 15th).

Passover = Easter (Jewish full moon of Spring Equinox month Nisan, plus seven days = “Christian” nearest Sunday following full moon of Spring Equinox)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Megalensia, in honor of the goddess Ceres, a.k.a. Cybele, when her son, the sun-god, came into his summer phase, or, as the pagans put it, was “resurrected from the Underworld”. This was believed to have happened on the Spring Equinox, March 25. The pseudo-Christians of Rome celebrate this “resurrection” on the nearest “sun-day” (to honor the sun-god) following the full-moon immediately after the Spring Equinox.

Pentecost = Pascha Rosata or Whitsunday (Jewish seven weeks after Passover = “Christian” Whitsunday seven weeks after Easter)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of Rosalia, when the dead were celebrated with rose-garlands. The red roses were believed to be the flowers which sprouted in the spring from the earth (Underworld) where the sun-god died in winter, stained red with his blood. Dead heroes were worshiped on this day, as if they were the “flowers” of the sun-god, and the Romanist pseudo-Christians worship their so-called “saints” at this feast in a continuation of the pagan rite.

17th of Tammuz Fast of Three Weeks = Feast of John the Baptist (Jewish midsummer fast = “Christian” celebration of John the “burning light” on 24th June, 6 months before midwinter Christmas Eve Mass, 24th December)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Midsummer Solstice, when fires were lit or rolled down, for the death of Tammuz, or Mithras, or Sol, the sun-god, who fell into the Underworld then, and was mourned with fasting, as the sun begins to descend from its highest point in the sky. The Bible references to John the Baptist as the “burning light” in the Gospel of John 5. 35, who must “decrease” as Jesus must “increase” (Gospel of John 3. 30), were twisted to turn John the Baptist into the sun and light god Janus-Mithras-Sol, who “decreases” in brightness from this time on, whilst Jesus was worshiped as the sun and light god who “increases” after “being born” in midwinter. In this case, too, even the Midsummer Solstice festival of the Jews, like the Jewish Midwinter Solstice festival Hanukkah, was a pagan import into Judaism from the cult of the Babylonian sun-god Tammuz (see Zechariah 8:19, Ezekiel 8:14). You can see they are based on pagan sun-worship because they are dated to the two times in the year when the sun is highest and brightest (Midsummer), and lowest and coolest (Midwinter). By contrast, the God-ordained feasts of Israel are regulated by the moon’s movements and cycles, not by those of the sun. The backslidden Jews had these two pagan sun-festivals, but the pseudo-Christian cults multiplied such practices and filled their whole year with them.

Tabernacles = Halloween (Jewish seventh month from Spring Equinox, “Christian” likewise)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Pantheon, of “All the Gods”, renamed the Feast of “All the Saints”. It is celebrated on the night of the 31st October/1st November, because that is when the dead sun-god’s body was believed to have been “discovered” by his lover, the goddess Ceres, that is, in the “deadness” of the winter foliage.

Satan gets the Vatican and Freemason cults to imitate the Jews in order to “replace” Israel as God’s nation, which they will never manage to do. That’s why these cults are anti-Semitic (though they deny it). Watch them today sneakily attacking Israel and all Bible-believing groups, Jewish and Christian. All true born-again Christians should have nothing to do with these heretical Vatican and Protestant-cum-Freemason cults or with their evil, Satanic festivals.

Relevant quotes from ancient writers confirming these facts:

Bede De Temporum Ratione, AD 725, chap. 12: “The second month he {that is King Numa of Rome} called after Februus, that is Pluto, who was believed to rule over purificatory sacrifice. In that month in which [Numa] ordained that justice be done to the divine spirits of the dead, the city was obliged to make purificatory sacrifices. But the Christian religion altered this custom of purificatory sacrifice for the better, when in that same month, on the Day of Saint Mary, the whole populace with the priests and ministers goes on procession through the churches and the city neighborhoods, all singing devout hymns, and carrying in their hands burning candles given them by the bishop. As this good custom grew, it provided a model for other feasts of the blessed Mother and perpetual Virgin as well, not in the five-year lustration of a worldly empire, but in the everlasting memory of the heavenly kingdom where, according to the parable of the wise virgins, all the elect shall go out to meet the Bridegroom, their King, with the lamps of their good deeds alight, and then shall enter into the heavenly city with Him.”

“Pope” Innocent III (AD 1198-1216): “Why do we carry lighted candles at this festival {that is at Candlemas}? The answer may be derived from the book of Wisdom, where it is said (ch. 14: 23) that the heathen offered sacrifices at night (sacrificia obscura). The Gentiles, indeed, had devoted the month of February to the infernal deities, because, as they ignorantly believed, it was at the beginning of this month that Pluto had ravished Proserpine. Ceres, her mother, had, according to their belief, sought her through Sicily for a whole night by the light of torches kindled at the flames of Etna. In commemoration of this, they every year, at the beginning of February, traveled the city during the night bearing lighted torches, whence this festival was called amburbale. But the holy fathers, being unable to abolish this custom, decided that lighted candles should be carried in honor of the blessed Virgin Mary; and thus what was formerly done for Ceres is done to-day in honor of the Virgin, and what was done formerly for Proserpine is now done in the praise of Mary” (Innocent III, Opera, “Serm. I. in fest. purif. Mariae,” fol. 47, col. 2, ed. Coloniae, 1552).

Say YES to THANKSGIVING and NO to the Witchcraft Ceremony of “Christmas” and Old Nick Santa Claus

[THIS POST HAS BEEN REPUBLISHED TO ADDRESS THE WIDESPREAD PUBLIC DELUSION ABOUT THE PAGAN CEREMONY OF “CHRISTMAS”]

Great! Thanksgiving’s coming up again. Get your turkey, folks, and your pumpkin pie and dig in to a real genuine Christian feast, a real genuine Pilgrim American feast. The founding fathers, the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock, loved Jesus — that’s why they came to America, to escape persecution from the Anglican cult in England and its parent-cult the Vatican on the continent. They didn’t celebrate Witchcraft ceremonies like “Christmas”. Neither does any true born-again Spirit-filled Christian today. They celebrated Thanksgiving, in gratitude to the Lord Jesus Who saved them in their pilgrim colony and led them (with the help of their dear native American Indian neighbors) to bring in a good harvest. Thank God for that. Ever since America has been a refuge for Bible-believing, God-fearing, God-loving Christians and has been a beacon on a hill to the rest of the world. Thanksgiving is a true Christian celebration, thanking God for His continued loving welfare. The Devil didn’t let them off scot-free, of course. He introduced weeds into the wheat-field and conned the Pilgrims’ descendants by re-introducing the European cults’ Witchcraft ceremony the Winter Solstice “Christmas”. Through the love of money (the root of ALL evil) the Devil promoted this Witchcraft ceremony by deceiving little children with the myth of Santa Claus and his goblin helpers. Presents, presents, presents! Money, money, money! That’s what it’s about. It’s just the Devil in disguise. Santa Claus is the old supposed-to-be “saint” Nicholas of Myra. A thoroughly degenerate little Vaticanite he was, like the present so-called “bishop” of Rome, the international pedophile ring-leader known as the “Pope”. The Bible predicted that the cult of the leaders named after “Nicholas” would swallow up the world in their false religion, and so it has come about. See Revelation 2. “6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans [means: “cultists named after Nicholas”], which I [Jesus Christ] also hate“, and “15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate“. Notice Jesus says here He HATES the “Nicholas” cult, and that’s the Santa Claus cult. You can download the historical facts showing the Santa Claus cult was the God-hated Nicolaitan cult here (left-click to read online or right click and Save As to download). Get back to the true Christian and American Thanksgiving and repent of this Satanic “Christmas” nonsense. You can see more about the pagan ceremony of Christmas here.

Let me repeat what has been said in an earlier post:

Satanism works by spells (magic words and formulas) and by ceremonies (magic acts). If a person participates in these he binds himself by evil forces. That means: just to take part in a Satanic ceremony is to bind your soul in bondage to demons.

A Holy-Ghost filled Christian, of course, would never take part in such a thing, or use magic words to achieve a stated purpose. So, Satan being aware of these facts he gets Christians to take part in his Satanic rituals by deception. One trick is to invite Christians to a festival or party which is actually a Satanic ritual-feast. That’s what the Apostle Paul said the Israelites did in their Desert Wanderings — they committed idolatry just by sitting down to the feast of Baal-Peor (a Satanic idol), and by getting up after the meal and playing “games” at the party.

Paul says this about it: 1 Corinthians 10 7 “Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Notice Paul calls these backslidden Israelites “idolaters” because they “sat down to eat” and “rose up to play”. Once the Israelites got into the “party-spirit” they started to get drunk and commit fornication with the sexy-dressed girls of the worshipers of Baal-Peor. Notice it was not necessary for them actually to worship the idol physically — they just “went to the party”. Well, yes. That’s exactly what Satan does now using the so-called “Christian” festivals which were created by the pagan Vatican cult known as the “Roman Catholic Church”. He gets Christians to come to the party at his Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween festivals, which are all pagan Roman Satanic feasts dressed up with “Christian” names and titles. So in the Name of the Lord Jesus, keep away from them!

==============

The detailed study of Alexander Tille, titled “Yule and Christmas”, London, 1899, p. 102 and following pages, gives you the facts about the Witchcraft cult of the so-called “Christmas Tree”: it was originally dedicated to the god Bel of Babylon (Babylon being Satan’s main cult-center), and was transferred into “Christian” (in name only) churches in Germany. The idol Bel is strongly condemned by God in the Bible: Isaiah 46:1: “Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts”, Jeremiah 50:2: “Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces.” Jeremiah 51:44: “And I will punish Bel in Babylon, and I will bring forth out of his mouth that which he hath swallowed up: and the nations shall not flow together any more unto him: yea, the wall of Babylon shall fall.”

The following quote is a bit technical so I’ll summarize it here: The Babylonian Satanic cult of Bel, including the use of magic branches and trees at the New Year, was borrowed by the Romans and practiced in ancient pagan Rome. When the Roman army conquered the ancient Germans, the Romans passed on this evil cult to the Germans. Later, when the Roman Empire turned “Christian” (in name only), the old pagan customs of Bel worship were given a “Christian” brush-up. So in Germany, for example, around the year AD 950, the pagan Roman Bel cult at New Year (January 1) was transferred by a Roman “Catholic” fanatic “saint” (so-called) to the nearby date of December 25. December 25 itself was an ancient pagan festival celebrating the birth of the Sun-god, but had been changed into the “Birthday of the Son of God” (Jesus) by the false Roman church. So now around AD 950 in Germany this so-called saint added a little spice to the poisonous mixture by taking the magic trees and branches of the Bel cult at New Year festival and splotting them onto December 25 “Birthday of the Son of God” (so-called). And so on and so forth — what a mess! The magic tree of the Bel cult popped up under the new name of the “Christmas Tree”. So the pagan witchcraft ceremony, from the Babylonian Bel cult, of looking for a tree in midwinter which had fruit or flowers on it, or was very green and fresh-looking, as an omen of fertility for the future year, had polluted the so-called churches of Europe and infested nominal Christian homes, as it still does today.

I have added a few explanations and comments in square brackets in the following quotation from Tille:

“Alsso [a writer about AD 1400] even tells us more. At the beginning of every month the Bohemians carried about the image of their god Bel, singing a Czechic song. They rejoiced in the god thus visiting their houses, hoping faithfully that, in consequence, the whole month long he would send them good luck, and lead all their fortune and life. Therefore people brought gifts to the image of Bel, as it were a tribute, regarding themselves as his true worshippers in order that he might bring them luck. But St. Adalbert [AD 956-997, he is called a “saint” here but he was obviously no saint], because it was too circumstantial to do so at the beginning of every month, and in order that the Christians might not also celebrate the beginning of the months [New Year] according to heathen custom, changed this celebration of the beginnings of months [the pagan New Year] into a celebration of Christ’s Nativity and of the week following it, thinking that it would be better to exercise that habit in the time in which Christ was born [he imagined this to be December 25], than at the beginning of months [New Year January 1], at which honour had once been bestowed upon Bel. He also is said to have altered the name and the sense of that celebration, making of ‘kalendisare’ [meaning “to practice a cult at the New Year”] ‘colendisare’ [meaning “to practice a reverend ceremony”] (from colere, to revere), because through that usage Christ was revered at his birthday, and not in the Calends [the Calends is the New Year Jan. 1]. If this report does not imply that medieval Christmas in South Germany took the place of an older Calends celebration according to Roman usage, I do not know what it implies. The confusion in which the minds of both authors are is best shown by the fact that they not only regard the Calends [that is, New Year] rites as an imitation and distortion of Christmas rites caused by the devil, but at the same time inform us that up to St. [not a Saint!] Adalbert’s time the Calends [New Year] alone prevailed, and that it was this Saint [so-called] who transferred to Christmas the Calendisationes or Calends [New Year] processions,—two statements which are mutually exclusive.

[Notice the contrast with earlier more Bible-based customs shown in the following statements:] When the Chapters of Bishop Martin of Bracae, A.D. 575, forbade the faithful to observe dangerous Calends [New Year] customs, to keep the heathen times of leisure, and to adorn their houses round about with laurel and green trees, he rendered a very great service indeed to folklore, for this seems to be the only prohibition of that Calends [New Year] custom which has come down to us, and it is not until eight hundred years later that we can show houses to have been adorned with green and trees at New Year and Christmas. It is told, however, of the [ancient Italian] Sabinian king Tatius, to whom by the legend a date is given about the middle of the eighth century B.C, that in winter he received branches of a happy or fortunate tree from the grove of Streniae as favourable omens with respect to the new year. It is true that story is told by a Roman writer of about 400 A.D., Q. Aurelius Symmachus, and it cannot therefore be regarded as affording any evidence on a state of things twelve hundred years before that time. But the one thing certain from it is that, in the time of the Roman empire, there existed the habit of presenting to people, on the Calends of January [New Year, Jan. 1], branches of trees for the sake of good luck in the new year. It is again solely from this custom that we learn the meaning of the adornment of houses with laurel and green trees in the sixth century. These things were put up as good omens for the luck of the year. Even later evidence of this custom is very scarce. That in Italy it lived on we know at the end of the fifteenth century, through Polydore Vergil, who says: “Trimmyng of the Temples with hangynges, floures, boughes, and garlandes, was taken of the Heathen people, whiche decked their Idoles and houses with suche arraye.” In Germany the two fifteenth century witnesses for that usage come both from the Rhine country, from Strassburg, and both mention that at New Year’s day the houses were adorned with green fir branches.

In Strassburg it is also that, a hundred years later, the first Christmas tree appears, a usage which seems to have sprung out of the union of the habit of adorning houses with green branches and trees according to Roman Calends [New Year] custom, and of a Christian tenth century legend, according to which, in the night when the Saviour was born, all trees bloom and bring forth fruits in the forest. This legend can be proved to have been very popular in the Germany of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

In England the same custom must have been popular, at least in the fifteenth century, even in the form of trees or artificial trees. “Against the Feast of Christmas, euery mans house, as also their parish Churches, were decked with Holm, Iuy, Bayes, and whatsoeuer the season of the yeere aforded to be greene. The Conduits and Standards in the streetes were, likewise, garnished. Amongst the which, I read, that in the yeere 1444, ‘by tempest of thunder and lightning, on the first of February at night, Pauls steeple was fiered, but with great labour quenched, and toward the morning of Candlemas day, at the Leaden Hall in Cornhill, a Standard of tree being set up in the midst of the pauement, fast in the ground, nayled full of Holme and Iuy, for disport of Christmas to the people, was torne up and cast downe by the malignant Spirit (as was thought), and the stones of the pauement all about were cast in the streets, and into divers houses, so that the people were sore aghast at the great Tempests.'”

Gay, in his Trivia, sings:

“When Rosemary and Bays, the poet’s crown,
Are bawl’d in frequent cries through all the town;
Then judge the festival of Christmas near,
Christmas, the joyous period of the year!
Now with bright Holly all the temples strow
With Laurel green, and sacred Mistletoe.”

And from that time on there is a complete continuity of tradition as regards the adornment of houses and churches by holly and ivy, evergreen and mistletoe, box and bay. There are the well-known fifteenth century carols about the contest between Holly and Ivy:

“Holly and Ivy, Box and Bay,
Put in the Church on Christmas day.”

PS. A little background on our Fairy-Fir-Tree “Saint” Adalbert, who takes the lion’s share of the blame for the filthy so-called “Christmas” cult as practiced today. He is the Roman “Catholic” patron-saint of Poland, and got that dubious distinction on account of the following “missionary” enterprises. After failing to “convert” the (already-converted) Old Slavic Christians further South, Adalbert decided it would be easier to win simple pagans to Rome’s Christianized military machine. He was the “Pope’s” chief representative on the Northern Germanic front, and a close relative of the “Holy Roman” Emperor, who headed the “Pope’s” thug-regime in Germany. As has widely been proclaimed, the “Holy Roman Empire” was neither “Holy”, nor “Roman” nor an “Empire”. It was a cultic fraternity of Barbarian chiefs bent on thrusting the “Pope’s” Vatican regime on as many poor deluded peasants as possible, if necessary by massacre and mayhem. So our Fairy-Fir-Tree “Saint” Adalbert towards the end of the tenth century AD, despaired of tricking the canny Slavic Christians (with their Received Text Old Slavonic Bibles), and headed off to “convert” what he imagined to be the more easily-deluded pagan peasants of Prussia. Venturing into their land, he was quickly pierced through by the alert pagan peasants — seven spears went through his torso, pinning him to the ground in the posture of the Roman crucifix. Quite appropriate really. He was followed over 200 years by another three Roman “missionary” attempts, and each time the Prussian peasants executed or banished the Roman spies (sorry, “missionaries”). Finally the “Pope” had enough of it and in the 13th century resorted to his normal tactics. He sent in the unemployed Crusaders known as the “Teutonic Knights” and the Order of the “Brethren of the Sword” (both of them sort-of Roman jihadi units), and massacred the pagan Prussians in a scorched-earth campaign across Prussia. He then imported settlers from Germany to occupy the devastated villages and hamlets under the eyes of the Roman barons in their highly fortified castles constructed for the purpose on the mountain-tops. Obviously, after that, Prussia (Poland) was “Catholic”. What a wonderful, miraculous conversion!!! That’s how it remained till the Reformation when, after recovering somewhat from the devastation, the poor Prussians threw off Roman “Catholicism” and brought forth a glorious Reformed church. The Pope didn’t let it last long and crushed this new movement in Prussia ruthlessly in the Counter Reformation. After that second round of massacring and mayhem, blessed by the “Pope”, Prussia (Poland) remained in the backwater of fanatical Romanism right to the present day.

The Massacring Evil, Financial and Political, of the False “Christian Churches”

We as born-again, Spirit-filled Christians belong to the True Church. That is not an organization, but a spiritual fellowship. You can’t join it, you are spiritually born into it by believing in the Messiah Jesus and receiving His living Spirit into your heart. It’s made up of all individuals who have done this, wherever they are, and however many or few they are. Together they form, in the sight of God, the Mystical Body of Christ. Each individual true believer is a member or part of Jesus’ Body and He is the Head Who controls it all. God deals with Israel as a NATION (they are God’s nation, and His only nation, under the Law given to them on Mount Sinai). God deals with the non-Israelites, the Gentiles, AS INDIVIDUALS, through the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah. Now that is the true Church of Jesus, the Mystical Body of Christ.

On the other hand, since the corruption of the early Church in the Middle Ages, there are many false, so-called Christian CULTS or organizations, which a person JOINS. This is a different thing altogether. It was never ordained by God. Examples of these cult organizations are the Roman “Catholic” cult, the oldest of all, formed and organized at the Nicene Council in AD 325 under Emperor Constantine. That eventually split into two wings, the Western or Latin or Vatican form in Rome and the Eastern or Orthodox form in Greece and later Russia. Then after one thousand years of Dark Ages brought on by that cult came the Reformation, in the 16th and following centuries, when many true Spirit-filled Christians like Martin Luther and John Wesley etc. broke away, trying to reform individual Christians and get them back to the original true Spirit-filled way. Unfortunately their later followers formed multiple organizations themselves, imitating the bad practice of the “Mother” of organizations, Rome. So was formed the Lutheran cult organization, the Methodist cult organization, the Presbyterian cult organization, the Anglican cult organization, the Pentecostal cult organizations etc. etc. What a mess! But through it all there have been individuals in those organizations and out of them who have got filled with the Spirit of Christ and entered into the true Mystical Body of the Messiah.

Now at the end-time the false organizations are banding together, as prophesied in the Holy Bible under two main umbrella groups, the Roman “Catholic” cult and the Ecumenical movement also known as the World Council of “Churches”. They are the ANTI or FALSE so-called Churches versus the true Spirit-filled Church. As always the FALSE persecutes and outlaws and condemns the TRUE. The false also works by EARTHLY not by SPIRITUAL HEAVENLY SUPERNATURAL power. The FALSE Church uses POLITICS AND MONEY AND WAR to achieve its ends. In the end-time it’s prophesied the false cults will band together against the Spirit-filled Mystical TRUE Church, composed of believing Spirit-filled individuals, and against God’s chosen nation, Israel.

The false cults’ hatred of Israel explains why they form alliances with anti-Israel Muslim dictatorships. Via the Muslim dictators and terrorist groups they ATTACK ISRAEL. You can see many examples of this right now in the Middle East. For example, the murderous regime of Assad in Syria is massacring its own population as this is written, simply because they want freedom, and the whole Satanic regime is propped up BY ORTHODOX, SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN RUSSIA. So-called “Christian” America meanwhile DOES NOTHING TO STOP HIS MASSACRING, JUST LIKE THEY DID NOTHING TO STOP HITLER’S MASSACRING OF JEWS IN WORLD WAR 2. I suppose afterwards they’ll all “feel sorry”. Likewise in Saudi Arabia the massacring dictatorship of the current Saudi royal family, which suppresses the majority of the population in Bahrain with tanks and secret police IS PROPPED UP BY THE VATICAN OR ROMAN “CATHOLIC” CULT, USING ITS ALLIES IN THE USA. Also the Ecumenical movement or World Council of “Churches” regularly uses its vast monetary resources to support PALESTINIAN MAFIA TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE PLO AND HAMAS to attack and terrorize Israel. This explains the obsession of these cults with the Middle East. Now if you imagine that these so-called “Church” organizations don’t have political or military “clout”, you need a lesson in history. FOLLOW THE MONEY. Whoever HAS THE MONEY CONTROLS POLITICS.

Well, you might say, that means the colossal multi-national corporations control politics. To an extent that is true. But who controls the multi-national corporations???? Clearly the organizations WITH MORE MONEY THAN THEY HAVE. Now let’s take a very rough look at the financial clout of the Ecumenical movement, the World Council of “Churches”. This more or less represents the combined forces of the so-called Protestant organizations. These groups, of course, don’t like to spill the beans on how much money and assets they own — it would kinda give away their agenda. They’re not spiritual Christ-like organizations, they’re political regimes.

Still we can estimate the COLOSSAL SIZE OF THEIR FINANCIAL AND POLITICAL POWER by taking ONE SMALL item on their ASSETS-LIST and totting up its worth in dollars. The following gives a very underestimated total of their LOW-END PROPERTY ASSETS ONLY, that is the total of low-end Church buildings owned by these groups. It’s based on the market-value of the average Church property in Texas USA, and merely the kind of property they’d like to sell off right now, that is LOW-END. It doesn’t include the much better properties they want to keep (like CATHEDRALS, HUGE GREAT COMPLEXES ETC IN THE PLUSHEST PARTS OF THE LAND, particularly in CENTRAL CITY LOCATIONS). I would estimate if you included these you’d have to multiply the total by at least ten times. Also, it doesn’t include the enormous investments in land and infrastructure these super-rich organizations possess (malls, factories, commercial operations, legal and illegal), which is of vastly superior financial worth. Now just take this LOW-END ASSET LIST OF THROW-AWAY CHURCH BUILDINGS. Let me tell you the result before I give you the figures. The estimated low-end asset list value of the WCC (World Council of “Churches” or Ecumenical movement) in the developed world (USA and Europe combined) IS 1.1 TRILLION DOLLARS. THAT BEATS HANDS-DOWN NUMBERS 1 AND 2 OF THE MULTI-NATIONAL CORPORATIONS ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE, APPLE AND EXXON-MOBIL, who total a measly $528.38 billion and $391.67 billion respectively. POOR NEIGHBORS! THE VATICAN IS MUCH RICHER THAN THE WORLD COUNCIL OF “CHURCHES” OF COURSE SINCE IT’S BEEN GOING FOR A COUPLE OF THOUSAND YEARS OR SO.

In the following rough calculation of low-end property assets WCC stands for World Council of “Churches”:

$28,884,238 sale value of 25 church buildings Texas area. Therefore average value $1,155,369.52 or approx. $1,000,000 per property.

Of the Episcopalian churches: “He took most of the Diocese of Fort Worth with him: 48 churches, 15,000 parishioners, and more than 58 clergy.”

Episcopalians 69 churches Dallas diocese. Total Dallas-FW = 117

Round total value Dallas-FW = $100,000,000.

WCC “A worldwide fellowship of 349 churches seeking unity”

Say top 5 of the WCC organizations are roughly equivalent to Episcopalians in property low-end

Rough estimate: half these churches have half the property value.

Other half has equivalent to a single “ecumenical property value unit”

Therefore, total WCC property value = $100,000,000 x 5 + $50,000,000 x 172 + $1,000,000 x 172
= 500,000,000 + 8,600,000,000 + 172,000,000 = $9,272,000,000

Approx $10 billion (low end). Population of Dallas-FW metroplex approx. 6.5 million. USA population approx 312 million.

Therefore proportionately total US WCC property value = 312/6.5 x 9,272,000,000 = 48 x 9,272,000,000 = $445,056,000,000

Approx $450 billion.

12% of world population lives in North America Western Europe

World Population = approx. 7,000,000,000
12% = 840,000,000 therefore 840/6.5 = approx 129

129 x 9,272,000,000 = 1,196,088,000,000 = property value WCC developed world (low end), approx $1.1 trillion

Compare current approx market value of Exxon Mobil = $391.67 billion

Others:
1 United States Apple Electronics $528.38 billion
2 United States Exxon Mobil Oil and gas $391.67 billion
3 United States Microsoft Information technology $261.46 billion
4 China PetroChina Oil and gas $246.83 billion
5 United States IBM Information technology $233.09 billion
6 United States Wal-Mart Retailing $222.10 billion
7 Hong Kong China Mobile Telecommunications $204.64 billion
8 Netherlands United Kingdom Royal Dutch Shell Oil and gas $203.19 billion
9 United States General Electric Conglomerate $203.16 billion
10 United States AT&T Telecommunications $199.74 billion

Christmas is a Witchcraft Ceremony — or, Artem-on is the Reas-on for the Seas-on

You probably don’t know it yet, but you have been duped into celebrating a pagan, Witchcraft ceremony, which binds you by spells into bondage to demons. That is, if you celebrate the Winter Solstice pagan ritual known as “Christmas”. Note this ceremony blasphemously uses (or abuses) the Blessed Name of Jesus Christ to masquerade as a “Christian” feast. This is typical of wicca cultism. They have a “Black Sabbath” and a “Black Mass” etc. etc., aping Christian practices. “Christmas” is one of these. Note its use of pagan rites like “greenery” (representing the spirits of the wood) and BLOOD-red (blood is particularly appreciated by wiccans) objects of various sorts. So next time you amble into your local mall you will be inundated with a flood of wiccan symbolism, red, green and flying sprites (Santas) and animals (wiccans just LOVE animals) swooping through the rafters.

Cutting down a tree and decking it with baubles is a pagan ceremony absolutely condemned by God in the Bible:

Jeremiah Chapter 10: “1 Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel:
2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven [like the Winter Solstice of the sun on December 25]; for the heathen are dismayed at them.
3 For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe.
4 They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.

5 They are upright as the palm tree, but speak not: they must needs be borne, because they cannot go. Be not afraid of them; for they cannot do evil, neither also is it in them to do good.
6 Forasmuch as there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”

The pity is it is pretty well known where this mumbo-jumbo comes from: it is the pagan feast of the Winter Solstice — sun-worship. In ancient Rome the sun-god was “born” on December 25, so when the pagan Roman Empire was “Christianized” it just changed the feast from the Birth of the sun-god to the Birth of the Son of God. This ignored the fact that the true Church of the first three centuries knew Jesus was actually born in late March or early April (depending on which local calendar they used). Now many still argue, as the Christianized Romans argued then, that “there’s no harm celebrating the festival, so long as you keep Jesus as the Reason for the Season” etc. etc. and similar verbal dribble. Well there IS A VERY GOOD REASON NOT TO CELEBRATE IT AT ALL, and that is because, as all witches know, to take part in a pagan ritual, with pagan ritual objects, subjects a person to evil spirits which are transmitted on and through those rituals. The only way to escape this demonic influence is to be thoroughly filled and sealed by the Holy Spirit of Jesus. That STOPS the demons from affecting you. But if you’re filled with the discerning Spirit of Jesus YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH PAGAN DEMONIC SYMBOLS AND CEREMONIES, BECAUSE YOU DISCERN THOSE EVIL SPIRITS.

You might wonder why I put up on the headline “Artemon is the Reason for the Season” in obvious mockery of the perverted idea that “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”. That is because a nutcase heretic called ARTEMON WAS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. He invented it. If you want to read the horrible and historical details you can download from the “Bible Resources” tab at the top of this page a PDF online booklet called “The Great Bible Text Fraud” which tells you how exactly Artemon did this. (The booklet also gives a lot of details about how the Bible was corrupted by heretics.) To put it simply — since the booklet is rather technical — there was a particularly vile little guru called Simon Magus in the days of the Apostles who was exposed as an imposter by Peter (see Acts chapter 8 in the New Testament for the facts). He taught the lying doctrine that Jesus was just an ordinary man, not God in human flesh, and that being an ordinary man he could not originally do miracles. However, so Simon Magus taught, one day, at Jesus’ baptism, the Spirit of Simon Magus, which was also the Spirit of the Sun-god, also called “the Christ”, came down into the ordinary man Jesus and turned him into a miracle-working super-man. This date, the date of Jesus’ baptism was believed to be the “Birth of the Sun-god” into the world, the time when he first appeared amongst men. In the pagan Roman East the date of the Birth of the Sun-god was 6th January. So Simon Magus’ followers began to believe that 6th January was the date of the “Birth of the Christ”, that is, of the Sun-god, as well as the date of the baptism of Jesus. Many in the East, like backslidden “Orthodox” Christians, still believe this today. Then later, so Simon Magus taught, just before Jesus was crucified, the Spirit of Simon Magus left him and went back to heaven, so allowing Jesus to die, as every normal man does. Well this very stupid doctrine was taught by Simon Magus first in Palestine and later in Rome, where it was picked up by a disciple of Simon Magus called Artemon. He was accepted as a true teacher by a group of Roman so-called Christians who had fallen into paganism, and who later were known as the Roman “Catholic” Cult. Now in Rome the Birthday of the Sun-god was December 25th, not the 6th of January (as it was in the East). So Artemon had to do some quick juggling with the dates. His solution was to make December 25th the date of the birth of the “mere man” Jesus (in the manger with the shepherds, animals etc.) and to keep the 6th January as the Birth of the Spirit of the Sun-god or of “the Christ” into the world. Now both sets of wiccans were happy: the easterners had their birthday of “Christ the sun-god” on January 6th and the western Romans had theirs on December 25th. The 12 days between December 25th and January 6th became the party-going “Twelve Days of Christ-mass”. Well that’s what you’re celebrating, folks — a total mess of Witchcraft garbage. ARTEM-ON IS TRULY THE REAS-ON FOR THE SEAS-ON.

Let me repeat what has been said in another post:

Satanism works by spells (magic words and formulas) and by ceremonies (magic acts). If a person participates in these he binds himself by evil forces. That means: just to take part in a Satanic ceremony is to bind your soul in bondage to demons.

A Holy-Ghost filled Christian, of course, would never take part in such a thing, or use magic words to achieve a stated purpose. So, Satan being aware of these facts he gets Christians to take part in his Satanic rituals by deception. One trick is to invite Christians to a festival or party which is actually a Satanic ritual-feast. That’s what the Apostle Paul said the Israelites did in their Desert Wanderings — they committed idolatry just by sitting down to the feast of Baal-Peor (a Satanic idol), and by getting up after the meal and playing “games” at the party.

Paul says this about it: 1 Corinthians 10 7 “Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Notice Paul calls these backslidden Israelites “idolaters” because they “sat down to eat” and “rose up to play”. Once the Israelites got into the “party-spirit” they started to get drunk and commit fornication with the sexy-dressed girls of the worshipers of Baal-Peor. Notice it was not necessary for them actually to worship the idol physically — they just “went to the party”. Well, yes. That’s exactly what Satan does now using the so-called “Christian” festivals which were created by the pagan Vatican cult known as the “Roman Catholic Church”. He gets Christians to come to the party at his Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween festivals, which are all pagan Roman Satanic feasts dressed up with “Christian” names and titles. So in the Name of the Lord Jesus, keep away from them!

The Wife is Her Husband’s Property — God says so

If you’ve got this far, you’re not doing too bad. You got past the Headline. I want to show you, by the help of God, how far the United States has moved off of God’s Word, and therefore come under God’s judgment. THERE IS NO REMEDY FOR AMERICA, AND FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD, EXCEPT TO COME BACK TO GOD’S WORD — REPENT AND START OVER.

By saying this, you should realize it’s not only America. Of all the countries in the world, even to this same time, the United States is by far the most free and the best constituted. And so it will remain until Israel takes the crown, when it receives Jesus as the Messiah (which it will shortly do). When that happens, the creeping evil rising up in America will swallow up the whole country, and the whole world, and will introduce a military dictatorship worse than anything seen before in history. That evil entity will be under the religious control of the Vatican using as its American front the World Council of “Churches”. As Satan took over God’s Eden by working first on the woman Eve, so Satan is right now rising to power in America by working on women.

The political fall of America started with the granting of the vote to women. The original Constitution of America, that great Christian document, gave no such right. And remember those who take an oath to uphold the Constitution take that oath to PRESERVE as well as to defend it. What happened? Someone somewhere FAILED TO PRESERVE that original Constitution. The original Constitution was based on certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS (that means rights which can’t be taken away by anyone) given by God to the whole human race. One of those God given rights is the RIGHT OF EVERY MARRIED MAN TO THE COMPLETE OWNERSHIP OF HIS WIFE. God Himself says this very clearly in the Word of God, the Bible. The Tenth Commandment says, I quote:

Exodus 20:17 “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor’s.”

God doesn’t believe in Communism. There is nothing “Communal” or “Community” here. God says the wife BELONGS TO THE HUSBAND (THE MALE NEIGHBOR), NOT TO THE COMMUNITY, THE GOVERNMENT, THE GARBAGE COLLECTOR, THE MAGISTRATE, THE LOCAL POP GOON OR ANYONE ELSE. Now if some “Government” comes along with a “better idea” than God, and says to that man’s wife, “Oh my darling, you poor soul, under that evil, evil man, I’ll tell you what, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LISTEN TO HIM, IF YOU WANT TO VOTE FOR ME, YOU CAN, AND HE CAN’T STOP YOU, I’LL SEND MY POLICEMEN TO MAKE SURE HE DOESN’T STOP YOU — YOU’RE FREEEEEEEE, YOU’RE AMERICAN, STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS!!!!!!!” Now you see what has happened. That “Government” has BROKEN THE 10TH COMMANDMENT, and has USURPED THE GOD-GIVEN, UNALIENABLE RIGHTS OF THE HUSBAND TO THE TOTAL OWNERSHIP OF HIS WIFE. The “Government” will pay for that. God will take vengeance. No way will it get out of that. Judgment will fall. Don’t believe Satan’s lie — the same lie he told Eve in Eden: “No, Eve, YOU WON’T SURELY DIE, IF YOU DO WHAT I SAY. God’s commandment has been misinterpreted to you. God didn’t mean that.” BUT GOD DID MEAN WHAT HE SAID. EVE DIED. SO WILL YOU DIE IF YOU BREAK THIS TENTH COMMANDMENT.

Now instead of upholding God’s commandment, clearly stated in the Bible, the US “Government” went on a wild “liberty” binge, claiming that it was going to “liberate” women. That’s just what Satan said he was going to do to Eve, “liberate” her, “enlighten her eyes”. Really he wanted to SEXUALLY ABUSE HER. Yes. That was his aim. He wanted to take Eve out of Adam’s control, and replace Adam’s headship with his own evil headship. And that is what the “Government” is up to today. That is what the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution did. It gave the women a “right” to vote the way they wanted to, which they never had from God, a “right”, that is, to DISREGARD THEIR HUSBAND’S WISHES. Because that Amendment DID NOT PRESERVE THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION, BECAUSE IT DISREGARDED THE GOD-GIVEN UNALIENABLE RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS, IT IS ILLEGITIMATE AND OUGHT TO BE REPEALED FORTHWITH.

The “Government” wants by this means to sweep away the biggest obstacle they’ve got to their planned military dictatorship, and that is the many INDIVIDUAL PATRIARCHAL MALE HEADS OF EACH BIBLE-BELIEVING HOUSEHOLD IN AMERICA, IN A WORD, THE HUSBANDS. If they can undermine the authority of the husband and get access to the weaker wives and children, they have successfully undermined the Bible-believing units of each Bible-believing household, under the headship of the Christian man. Then they can dismantle the whole structure and take over. They can take the children off to their indoctrination centers, the local “Government”-run school or uni(sex-per)versity, get them to abandon their family home under the Christian male, and give the wife “free” money (taxpayers’ dollars) doing some useless paper-shifting in some monstrous “Government”-run office. That will lead (as it already has) to the abandonment of the husband, and the emergence of the “single mother”. That in turn causes a VAST DRAIN ON MONEY AND RESOURCES OF THE STATE (TAXPAYERS DOLLARS) CHANNELED TO USELESS WOMEN RUNNING AROUND LOOKING BUSY BUT DOING NOTHING OF VALUE TO THE LONG-TERM INTERESTS OF THE STATE. THE CHILDREN ARE ABANDONED AND HAVE TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. THEY GROW UP AS LATCH-KEY KIDS, DRUNK, DRUGGED AND PUNKED INTO TOTAL IDLENESS. Yes, that is exactly what has happened, and it’s getting worse. So don’t think there’s any easy fix to this economy. It’ll get worse if you don’t deal with the problem that’s causing it. The last thing you need is WOMEN POLITICIANS TO COME ALONG AND CLAIM THEY’RE GOING TO FIX IT. They’re the very worst example to give the pitiable, drugged, benighted, diabetic, obese, dependent, single mothers of this sin-sick society.

Back to the Bible, back to the Word of God, back to the Saint Paul Gospel and the Bible Holy Ghost!

Comfort and Joy

[THIS POST HAS BEEN REPUBLISHED TO DEMONSTRATE THE ANTI-CHRIST NATURE OF THE IRS TAX SYSTEM IN THE USA]

The great battle is here, the showdown between Christ and Satan. Who gets the last laugh? God! Read Psalm 2:

“2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.”

The kings of the earth have set themselves against the true Bible-believers. They have taken counsel in the Vatican and the World Council of “Churches” to destroy the true faith of the Messiah Jesus and stop Israel from receiving the Gospel and receiving power from God as a result. Their plan will not work. It is doomed to failure, as this Psalm tells us.

First these evil pseudo-Christian cults took aim at the Bible-believers’ place of refuge in America. They plotted to destroy America financially at the very beginning of the 20th century, because finance was becoming America’s strong-point, as God blessed its Bible-belt backbone. The monarchy in England, the heads of the Anglican cult, had miserably failed to crush the rebel colonies of America in the 1800s. So in the early 1900s they tried a different tack — they used their vast illegally-gotten wealth stashed in the Bank of England to finance the “Federal Reserve Bank” project in the USA. Bribing a few corrupt and very wealthy American politicians, like one Mr. Aldrich, was a necessary evil, from their polluted point of view, to achieve their end. The “Federal Reserve” central bank would be used to turn the American dollar gradually over the decades into a worthless piece of paper, and thus impoverish the Bible-belt. It worked. We saw the result last year. Now they are moving in for the kill.

Remember the Anglican Cult at that time was far from being what it was originally — a Protestant Church. By the 1900s it had been infiltrated and taken over in its upper echelons by the Jesuits, masquerading as “High Church” Anglicans. This process had started in the 19th century with the so-called Oxford Movement, which was overtly a “Catholicization” of the Anglicans by intellectual pro-Roman snobs at Oxford. Thus, when the Bank of England set up its “take over America” banking scheme, it was already the Anglican Cult PLUS its Vatican moles embedded within it doing the dirty-work. As usual, they used the despotic, Biblically-illiterate, royal upper-class twits of England and Europe to provide them with hard cash (mainly gold). The priests of the Anglican Cult and of the Vatican gained power over these social top-graders by giving them a “Christian” cover for their totally selfish, petty, little kingdoms.

Mainly at the time the hard cash came from the British monarchy via the Bank of England, and from the Austrian Hapsburgs and the German Kaisers via the central bank in Germany. When the “Federal Reserve” Bank was set up in New York it was these filthy pseudo-religious money merchants of Europe behind it. Their aim — solely to destroy America as a Bible-believing country. The leaders of the project, it goes without saying, were Devil-inspired. This means the thing is (ultimately) doomed to failure, because the Devil is a cosmic Dumbo. As you can see from the Psalm quoted above, God is going to have the last laugh here.

But even the Devil is not without some superficial intellectual power. The monarchies of Europe had worked out that it was (and is) always best to have Jews in charge of money-management. This is so, because Jews, being God’s chosen people, are going to be blessed by the Creator. That includes financially. You will never beat the Jews in a money deal, so don’t try. And may God bless them and continue to bless them abundantly! There was a rich and devious Babylonian in ancient times called Laban, and he got Jacob, the ancestor of all the Jews, to manage his money for him, because, as Laban admitted: “I have learned by experience that the LORD hath blessed me for thy sake.” (Genesis 30. 27.) Even though Jacob was outside of his own God-given homeland at that time (Jews are commanded by God always to live in their own land, Israel), and was capable of some very tricky business manoevering himself, God still blessed him. So it is today with Jacob’s descendants.

Now these Jewish managers of the Bank of England and the European banks, headed up by Paul Warburg, the Jewish genius behind the “Federal Reserve” system, were not going to be walkovers in the operation. After all, America was a place of refuge for Jews as well as Bible-believing Christians. Paul Warburg himself played a major part in securing Jewish refugees from Russian Czarist pogroms a new home in America. The last thing the Jews wanted was to harm their own place of refuge. The European Cults and their monarchical allies knew this. To buy off any qualms they might have about it, they made the Jews an offer they couldn’t refuse: in exchange for the Jewish bank-managers’ co-operation in the setting up of a central Bank in America, the English monarchy offered them — yes, the land of Israel itself. Up to that time Palestine had been under the dictatorship of the Muslim Turks. But England was heading for war with Turkey, and had no desire to possess permanently this (to them) useless little bit of real-estate in Palestine. What better, they thought, than to put it to good use and bribe the Jews with a real, authentic, Biblical, place of refuge for them in their own land? It was a Devilishly-cunning scheme, but one which God was using to get the Jews back to their homeland.

So, when the inevitable war occurred (World War 1) the English booted Turkey out of Palestine and offered it to the Jews. (An offer of this kind to the “foreign race” of the Jews is completely contrary to the naturally selfish, racist, egotistical, power-hungry, inclination of the English upper-classes, as anyone acquainted with them will admit, and could only happen in the circumstances outlined, where there was a very big VESTED INTEREST OF A FINANCIAL KIND. That it wasn’t a love-gift is proved by the fact that within 20 years the British turned against the Jews of Palestine and helped the local Arab gangsters massacre them — as the Brits’ own Anglican Cult and its cronies in the World Council of “Churches” still do today.) In the meantime, the Jews got their homeland, God turning the politics to their advantage, and the European banks got their “Federal Reserve” central bank in the USA.

Immediately the corruption of the American money-system went into operation. As the Vatican hold on the Anglican Cult in Britain got stronger, the Vatican’s stakes in the “Federal Reserve” Bank increased. By the time World War 2 came on, the Vatican was stashing gold by the container-load in “Protestant” America. Much of this gold was siphoned off from the Nazis’ looting of Europe in the War via the Vatican’s convent system: German military men found the Vatican’s convents and monasteries very convenient and commodious hiding holes for their ill-gotten gains.

The pity is that the few rich, corrupt, Americans like Aldrich who promoted the scheme, hoping only to line their own pockets, were (and surely they must have known this) handing their own country over to a bunch of European sharks. The Europeanization of America and its abandonment of true Bible faith has been the consequence of the financial wheeler-dealing of those traitors. Their motives, of course, were wholly selfish. Aldrich and his fellow rich monopolists of American business in the second half of the nineteenth century had been threatened with financial castration by the popular movement to bring in an “income” tax, that is, by whatever means might be Constitutionally possible, a tax on RICH MEN’s surplus wealth. Aldrich fought with all his might to stop this tax on the rich. Eventually the 16th Amendment to the US Constitution was passed, ensuring there would indeed be an “income” tax (however that was to be Constitutionally interpreted). Aldrich’s response was to thwart the popular movement by setting up his “Federal Reserve” central Bank and grab the money back by deceit. He also set up a scheme to neutralize the 16th Amendment by MISINTERPRETING the law so as to redefine the word “income” here as the ordinary person’s living wage, instead of what it was originally intended to be, the rich man’s perks. That has been ever-since the main purpose of the IRS, the American Tax service (“INLAND ROBBERY SERVICE”) — to misinterpret the word “income” in the Constitution’s 16th Amendment and apply it wrongly and illegally to the mass of American citizens. That is why to this day THERE EXISTS NO LAW IN WRITING INSTRUCTING AMERICAN RESIDENTS TO FILE AN INCOME TAX RETURN. If there was such, the US Government would be prosecutable for fraud and extortion by misleading the ordinary people into thinking the earnings they live on are taxable. You can now see the Devilish nature of this system, both in the “Federal Reserve” central bank and in the IRS. It is anti-God, anti-Bible, anti-American, and anti-Israel.

As the American system is brought to ruin by these evil financial manipulators, God is preparing His people for the final Godly laugh. The Devil is going to be defeated by the rapture of Jesus’ Bride into heaven and by the spiritual rebirth of Israel, which will very soon accept the Messiah Jesus under two prophet witnesses (as described in Revelation chapter 11) and throw off the corrupt pseudo-church world-powers. So it’s COMFORT AND JOY truly this season for the people of God worldwide. Shalom in the Messiah Jesus!

Woman wearing pants = spirit of sodomy

Jesus warned us that at the end of the world it would be like Sodom and Gomorrah. See Luke’s Gospel ch. 17 verses 28-30. Sodom and Gomorrah were two ancient cities which practiced sodomy (homosexuality, same-sex, “gay” stuff). Because of their evil, God destroyed them by fire. Jesus said the same would happen to the world at the end time. That’s why sodomy is being promoted right now by the wicked ones who control modern society. That sodomite, evil, spirit works on Christians and tries to get them involved in perversion so they too will come under judgment. As always, Satan first tries to get a spirit of evil to work on the people, then later he moves in stronger to get the person to practice the evil. In the case of sodomy, Satan first tries to get the person, especially Christian people, to get “in the spirit” of sodomy. You get “in the spirit” of a thing by ACTING LIKE, or ADMIRING, or TOLERATING that thing. So today, one of Satan’s main techniques is to get Christians to ACT in a sodomite spirit, by DRESSING in a way that confuses or merges the sexual roles of male and female. If Satan gets you to do that, he has already succeeded in putting on you a sodomite (uni-sex, perverted) spirit, then it won’t be long before you, or people in your company, will be affected more by that spirit, and go on to practice sodomy. Often, as Jesus said to His disciples, people ARE UNAWARE OF THE SPIRIT THAT IS WORKING ON THEM. See Luke’s Gospel ch. 9 verse 55.

So I want to let you know one of the main forms of Satan’s working right now. That is on women who wear man’s clothing. The Bible condemns this practice, and calls it an ABOMINATION. Abominations means “absolute filth”. The Bible says trousers or pants are MEN’S CLOTHING, because they are “sanctuary garments” to be worn by priests only. Only males can be priests in the Bible AND ALL MALE TRUE BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN MALES ARE PRIESTS over their households. When a woman puts on pants she is usurping the male role of priest, and GOD HOLDS HER GUILTY OF SODOMY.

Faith of the Fathers

Originally posted: Nov. 26, 2008

The mass abandonment of Bible faith in Jesus Christ is why the world is teetering on the brink of annihilation. What you’re going to read now, presuming you have been indoctrinated with modernism within the last 50 years or so, will probably make you either violently sick or violently angry. Good! If it doesn’t, it won’t do you any good. America received its final call in 1956.

God sent a prophet with the Elijah ministry, William Branham, to restore the original faith of the apostolic Pentecostal fathers.

He fulfilled the prophecy written in Malachi 4. 5-6: “5. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6. And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Many have claimed to be this Elijah, but they were false. You might say: “I would know about it if God had sent this great prophet Elijah to us. Why isn’t it well known?” That’s exactly what happened when the spirit of Elijah came the time before, in John the Baptist. The people didn’t know anything about it till it was over and gone, and John had been executed. Read Matthew 17. 10-13: “10 And his disciples asked him (Jesus), saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias (= Elijah) must first come? 11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. 12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. 13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.”
If you want to check out the facts on Brother Branham’s ministry you can download any and all the surviving tape-recordings of his messages free of charge at www.christianhospitality.org.

What I want to go into here is WHAT Brother Branham did. According to the Bible prophecy quoted here he turned the heart of the children [born-again children of God] to “their fathers”. Our fathers are the apostolic church fathers. Heart in Hebrew means faith, like hand means power. Here our faith is promised to be turned back to the faith of our fathers. I want to double-underline fathers. It doesn’t say “faith of the mothers” it says “faith of the fathers”. We’ve been inundated in a sea of filth by modern drug-sex culture and the “faith of the mothers”. God’s faith is PATRIARCHAL. The man is the head of the house, not the woman, according to the Bible. Woman wasn’t even in God’s original creation. She was made as a by-product of the man. She was designed to be Satan’s dupe. She is designed to be deceived by the Devil, and that’s exactly what happened to Eve: she was immediately deceived by Satan. Adam wasn’t deceived, Eve was. Adam knew what he was doing when he sinned, Eve did not. She actually thought she was right when she did what Satan insinuated to her. That is an inherited characteristic. Every daughter of Eve has inherited the same nature as Eve, wide open to deception. That’s why no woman can ever be a preacher, teacher or usurp authority of any kind over a man. She will straightaway be cursed by God if she does so. All so-called churches which accept women ministers are cursed of God and are not true churches of God at all. They are Satan’s synagogues. Paul says that clearly in 1 Timothy 2. 11-14:

“11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.”

Anyone who rejects Paul’s teaching is CURSED by God:

Galatians 1. 8-9: “8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”

The woman must have long uncut hair as a sign of subjection to the man, 1 Corinthians 11. 15-16:

“15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.
16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.”

The woman must stay quiet in true Christian assemblies: 1 Corinthians 14. 34:
34 Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
35 And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
36 What? came the word of God out from you? or came it unto you only?
37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.
38 But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.”

Now you can see how few true churches of God there are. You ministers so-called who do these things without fear of God and trample all over God’s Word through St Paul and the Apostles: Shame on you! Repent, or perish, you whitewashed walls.

Then, just to make sure you’re put off completely from doing what God says, Satan sends his Catholic (so-called) cohorts of Sodomite pervert priests and sexless morons. Again they trample God’s Word in the dust: they replace God’s great PATRIARCHAL family-system, with androidic loveless pseudo-“fathers”. Paul tells us what these twisters will do:

1 Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:”

They FORBID TO MARRY and make abstaining from food at Lent and on Fridays some sign of holiness. Then they sneak into households and captivate silly women with promises of being “brides of Christ” and imprison them in convents where they are prey to the vile passions of fornicating priests:

“2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

It would be bad enough if they just kept this within their own polluted circle. But these churches, both loose protestants in the World Council of “Churches” and nazified “catholics”, through their ill-gotten gains, land, money, investments, pollute the rest of society by influencing legislation and politics. They attack the patriarchal family with every filthy weapon in their arsenal. They promote Sodomite (“gay”) laws and other anti-family policies to break up the patriarchal family, just as the serpent did in Eden. Now you so-called Bible-believers. Get filled with the Spirit of Christ and reject this modernistic garbage. Get back to the Bible. The man is the head of the house. The woman has no say in politics, or anywhere in the pulpit, or in authority. Away with these ridiculous women judges, female police officers, soldierines, female monarchs, and politicianesses. Women have no right to vote, they should stay in the kitchen. The Word of God condemns their illegal usurpation. Who would dare to say the great Reformation prophet John Knox didn’t know what he was talking about re. Bible teaching? Well then, just go to the following links if you want to see what John Knox said about the “Monstrous Regiment of Women” — HTML at www.christianhospitality.org/resources/knox-regiment.htm and PDF at www.christianhospitality.org/resources/knox-regiment.pdf. The US Constitution is NOT the Word of God, and the pity is it has been twisted out of all recognition from the Christian and godly document it once was by the insertion of the women’s voting amendment which DEPRIVES all true-blooded US males of their GOD-GIVEN rights to the headship of their wives and household members. DON’T CALL YOURSELF A BORN-AGAIN CHRISTIAN IF YOU GO ALONG WITH THIS HOGWASH. Because you have flooded the world with moral filth, church-going America, you have let down the spiritual barriers. Now a set of desert fuzzy-wuzzies have you trembling in your boots. You weaklings. Get a Bible backbone.

What really happened when Jesus rose again

Originally posted: March 25 2008

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD

The 4 Gospels, like all reliable witnesses, give their evidence in different words, because the writers saw the events of Jesus’ life from different angles. If you have got confused over “Easter”, reading the Gospel accounts of what happened, and when, on that great Sunday morning, read on. As you go down the list of events, get your Gospels and find where each event fits in the scheme. Hallelujah! Christ is alive!

1) Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the Less, Salome and other women, bring spices to anoint the body of Jesus early on Sunday morning, while it is dark, just as day begins to break.

2) They are still on their way to the tomb, which is out of sight, when an earthquake occurs. At the tomb itself an angel descends from the sky, rolls away the great stone blocking the tomb’s entrance, and sits on it. The guards at the tomb are seized with terror, and fall to the ground like dead men. When they come to their senses, they run into the city to tell the priests what has happened.

3) The women arrive at the tomb and find it empty, the stone rolled away and no body inside.

4) Mary Magdalene runs back to the city of Jerusalem, and tells Peter and John what she has seen.

5) Peter and John run quickly to the tomb and find it as Mary Magdalene had told them. They return to their lodgings.

6) Mary Magdalene, now back at the tomb, with the women, looks inside and sees two angels, one at the head, and one at the feet, where Jesus’ body had lain. The angels ask, why are they looking for the living amongst the dead? Jesus had risen from the dead and would go ahead of the disciples into Galilee. They tell Mary Magdalene and the women to go and inform the disciples of these things.

7) The women run away. Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome are so terrified, they fail to do as they are told, and say nothing to anyone. Other of the women go and tell the disciples what happened to them. Two of the disciples then leave to go to the village of Emmaus by foot.

8) FIRST AND SECOND APPEARANCES OF JESUS. Jesus then appears first to Mary Magdalene, and then to Mary mother of James, and greets them both, repeating the angels’ commission to them to tell the other disciples.

9) THIRD APPEARANCE OF JESUS. Meanwhile Mary remains standing opposite the tomb. This Mary is untitled, and is addressed by Jesus (later) as “woman” — the same way he addressed his mother, the Virgin Mary. Therefore this Mary is Mary the mother of Jesus (See Note at the end). When she looks inside the tomb, she sees the two angels at the head and the feet where Jesus had lain. They ask her why she is weeping. She says, because they have taken away the Lord and she does not know where. She then turns and sees Jesus, who she thinks is the gardener. She recognizes Him when He says, “Mary”, and holds Him. He tells her not to touch Him, as He has not yet ascended to His Father. She is told to inform His “brethren” (meaning his foster-brothers, the children of Joseph, that is, James, Jude etc., called the “brethren of the Lord”) that He is raised from the dead. He tells her that Mary Magdalene is right now coming to where the disciples are and telling them these things. (This last sentence is often missed out of Jesus’ speech, because the original Greek did not include inverted commas to tell where the speech ended. Mary the mother of Jesus tells Joseph’s sons, because they are her family, whilst Mary Magdalene tells the disciples.)

10) Mary Magdalene, commissioned this time, as she has been, by Jesus Himself, tells the disciples that Jesus has risen from the dead and has appeared to her and told her these things. They do not believe her.

11) FOURTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS. Jesus then appears to Peter.

12) FIFTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS. Jesus appears to the two disciples, Clopas and his friend, on the way to Emmaus. They do not recognize Him as He is “in another form”, but finally they see who He is in the evening, when they sit down with Him to break bread.

13) They quickly return to Jerusalem to the Eleven and those with them, and the others. The others do not believe them, but the Eleven and those with them confirm that Jesus has risen indeed, and has appeared to Peter.

14) SIXTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS. Jesus then appears to the disciples, except Thomas, who is absent. He proves to them He has a physical body, and is not a disembodied spirit.

15) SEVENTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS. Eight days later, He appears to Thomas.

Note on (9). The Mary in (9) must be some Mary other than Mary Magdalene, not only for the reasons stated in (9) but also for the following reasons: Reason A) This Mary cannot be Magdalene when she first saw the angels because there is no space of time for her going and remaining silent about her vision of the angels in the tomb, as the Gospel writer Mark says she did, till Jesus Himself appeared to her and repeated the angels’ instruction to her Himself to tell the disciples (see 7 and 8); this incident in John’s Gospel shows that the Mary who stood waiting at the tomb saw the angels, then immediately saw Jesus, without any interval between. Therefore Magdalene had already seen the angels (see 6), and: Reason B) since Magdalene had already seen the angels and been told Jesus was alive, this Mary cannot be Magdalene, since she still thinks someone has taken Jesus’ body away.

The Pagan Festival of Easter

Image above: the pagan god of the Underworld snatches away the maiden Cora, AND SO LENT BEGINS

THE PAGAN FESTIVAL OF EASTER

Most Christians (so-called as well as many genuine ones) will be celebrating Easter over the next few days. Do you realize this is a pagan festival?

We’ve got nothing against anybody having special festivals. The Bible says all days are the same, so a festival day is just the same as a normal day in God’s Book. What is wrong is when people start OBSERVING days and times as though they are RELIGIOUS DUTIES. Christians don’t do that.

Paul said about the backslidden Galatian Christians: “Ye observe days, and months, and times, and years. I am afraid of you, lest I have bestowed upon you labour in vain” (Galatians 4:10-11). So that’s out.

Easter was invented by the Vatican cult, way back in Rome. They twisted the true Bible history of how Jesus died and rose again physically into a version of the pagan myth of the god of nature, the sun-god, who died in the winter and rose in the spring in the form of flowers and budding trees. They identified this sun-god with one of their famous pagan kings who lived in the so-called “Golden Age” just after the Flood. This evil king was called Tammuz, and he had other names like Adonis, Osiris and Dionysus. So it was easy for them to say Tammuz had “reappeared” on earth as Jesus. Now Jesus, to them, was the new sun-god. How perverted! That’s why they said Easter HAD to be celebrated on Sunday, the day of the sun-god. In fact thousands of true Christians were massacred by the Vatican cult in the Dark Ages because these true Christians REFUSED to worship their sun-god on Sunday at the Easter festival.

The sun-god Tammuz had a sister Cora who died and went into the underworld when he, her brother, arose from the dead in the spring flowers. It was a kind of “I’ll go down, when you come up” duo act. Her mother Ceres went searching for her dead daughter for 40 days, weeping and fasting. This 40-day fast lasted till the Sunday of Tammuz’ resurrection, when she finally found her daughter had died and gone to the underworld. That’s why the Vatican cult (and other so-called Christian para-church organizations who borrowed from them) fast for 40 days before Easter Sunday. That 40-day fast is called Lent. What a load of pagan garbage! True Christians have nothing to do with it. It’s not in the Bible at all.

Now there’s nothing wrong with Evangelists using these so-called Christian festival-times to pull in the unbelievers to hear the Gospel. They (the unbelievers) are not expected to know any different. They think that’s what Christianity is about, Easter and Christmas, and so on. But we true believers must expose it for what it is. Keep away from it, children of the Messiah!

Satanism works by spells (magic words and formulas) and by ceremonies (magic acts). If a person participates in these he binds himself by evil forces. That means: just to take part in a Satanic ceremony is to bind your soul in bondage to demons.

A Holy-Ghost filled Christian, of course, would never take part in such a thing, or use magic words to achieve a stated purpose. So, Satan being aware of these facts he gets Christians to take part in his Satanic rituals by deception. One trick is to invite Christians to a festival or party which is actually a Satanic ritual-feast. That’s what the Apostle Paul said the Israelites did in their Desert Wanderings — they committed idolatry just by sitting down to the feast of Baal-Peor (a Satanic idol), and by getting up after the meal and playing “games” at the party.

Paul says this about it: 1 Corinthians 10 7 “Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Notice Paul calls these backslidden Israelites “idolaters” because they “sat down to eat” and “rose up to play”. Once the Israelites got into the “party-spirit” they started to get drunk and commit fornication with the sexy-dressed girls of the worshipers of Baal-Peor. Notice it was not necessary for them actually to worship the idol physically — they just “went to the party”. Well, yes. That’s exactly what Satan does now using the so-called “Christian” festivals which were created by the pagan Vatican cult known as the “Roman Catholic Church”. He gets Christians to come to the party at his Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, and Halloween festivals, which are all pagan Roman Satanic feasts dressed up with “Christian” names and titles. So in the Name of the Lord Jesus, keep away from them!

Notice how these pagan feasts were deliberately chosen to imitate, in a Devilish fashion, the ancient feasts of Israel, which happened at these same times of year:

Hanukkah = Christmas (Jewish 25th Kislev = “Christian” 25th December)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Birth of the Roman sun-god, Sol Invictus, in the depths of the Winter Underworld. So it was dated to the time of the Winter Solstice (December 25), when the sun is lowest in the sky, after which the sun increases in strength (“growing after the birth”). Please note, in this case, even the Jewish feast (Hanukkah, the feast of “lights”) was a copy of the pagan Greek festival of “lights”, the Dionysia festival, celebrating the birth of the Greek sun-god Dionysus at the Winter Solstice, and was never ordained by God in the Law of Moses. It was slipped into Judaism a couple of hundred years or so before Christ, when the Greek dictator Antiochus Epiphanes “paganized” the Temple for a few years, as prophesied by Daniel 11:30.

Purim = Valentine’s Day (Jewish 13th Adar = “Christian” 13th/14th February)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of Dead Ancestors, the “Purification” of the Parentalia, changed later into the Amburbalia or Search of the goddess Ceres for Cora. Cora was the moon-goddess of the dark winter nights who “disappeared into the Underworld” at this time of year, when the dark nights get shorter. Cora was called Despoina, “Mistress”, or Madonna, and was therefore equated with Mary, who had those same pagan titles in Romanist “theology”. Six months later, as the nights grow dark again, and the winter moon becomes more prominent, Cora “ascended” up to heaven: so likewise Mary is blasphemously said to have been “assumed” (taken up) to heaven, after a complete 6 months following the “Day of Saint Mary” (which was originally 14th February) on the “Feast of the Assumption” (August 15th).

Passover = Easter (Jewish full moon of Spring Equinox month Nisan, plus seven days = “Christian” nearest Sunday following full moon of Spring Equinox)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Megalensia, in honor of the goddess Ceres, a.k.a. Cybele, when her son, the sun-god, came into his summer phase, or, as the pagans put it, was “resurrected from the Underworld”. This was believed to have happened on the Spring Equinox, March 25. The pseudo-Christians of Rome celebrate this “resurrection” on the nearest “sun-day” (to honor the sun-god) following the full-moon immediately after the Spring Equinox.

Pentecost = Pascha Rosata or Whitsunday (Jewish seven weeks after Passover = “Christian” Whitsunday seven weeks after Easter)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of Rosalia, when the dead were celebrated with rose-garlands. The red roses were believed to be the flowers which sprouted in the spring from the earth (Underworld) where the sun-god died in winter, stained red with his blood. Dead heroes were worshiped on this day, as if they were the “flowers” of the sun-god, and the Romanist pseudo-Christians worship their so-called “saints” at this feast in a continuation of the pagan rite.

17th of Tammuz Fast of Three Weeks = Feast of John the Baptist (Jewish midsummer fast = “Christian” celebration of John the “burning light” on 24th June, 6 months before midwinter Christmas Eve Mass, 24th December)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Midsummer Solstice, when fires were lit or rolled down, for the death of Tammuz, or Mithras, or Sol, the sun-god, who fell into the Underworld then, and was mourned with fasting, as the sun begins to descend from its highest point in the sky. The Bible references to John the Baptist as the “burning light” in the Gospel of John 5. 35, who must “decrease” as Jesus must “increase” (Gospel of John 3. 30), were twisted to turn John the Baptist into the sun and light god Janus-Mithras-Sol, who “decreases” in brightness from this time on, whilst Jesus was worshiped as the sun and light god who “increases” after “being born” in midwinter. In this case, too, even the Midsummer Solstice festival of the Jews, like the Jewish Midwinter Solstice festival Hanukkah, was a pagan import into Judaism from the cult of the Babylonian sun-god Tammuz (see Zechariah 8:19, Ezekiel 8:14). You can see they are based on pagan sun-worship because they are dated to the two times in the year when the sun is highest and brightest (Midsummer), and lowest and coolest (Midwinter). By contrast, the God-ordained feasts of Israel are regulated by the moon’s movements and cycles, not by those of the sun. The backslidden Jews had these two pagan sun-festivals, but the pseudo-Christian cults multiplied such practices and filled their whole year with them.

Tabernacles = Halloween (Jewish seventh month from Spring Equinox, “Christian” likewise)

… but this so-called “Christian” feast is actually the pagan Feast of the Pantheon, of “All the Gods”, renamed the Feast of “All the Saints”. It is celebrated on the night of the 31st October/1st November, because that is when the dead sun-god’s body was believed to have been “discovered” by his lover, the goddess Ceres, that is, in the “deadness” of the winter foliage.

Satan gets the Vatican and Freemason cults to imitate the Jews in order to “replace” Israel as God’s nation, which they will never manage to do. That’s why these cults are anti-Semitic (though they deny it). Watch them today sneakily attacking Israel and all Bible-believing groups, Jewish and Christian. All true born-again Christians should have nothing to do with these heretical Vatican and Protestant-cum-Freemason cults or with their evil, Satanic festivals.
