and God said "Let there be Lights in the Firmament"
Historical information from a biblical perspective in order to better understand the present and the future. If we don’t learn from our past we are doomed to repeat it and where there is no vision, the people perish.
This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and who it rightfully belongs to.
Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.
Worship of a Black Madonna, Mother-Goddess goes back to ancient times and has been fused into the majority of cultures globally. The origins of this are highly contested among scholars. This article will finally solve the Mystery of the Black Madonna: where and who it came from. But whether it’s white or black, it’s the same image. Syncretism is the practice of combining or fusing different forms of belief or worship into one, i.e. Greco-Roman.
The feast day of the so-called “Black Madonna of Czestochowa” (Poland) is celebrated on Sunday, August 26th. Roman Pontiffs have recognized and venerated this icon for centuries.
There are two Roman holidays being celebrated on this day, but where did they come from and what do they mean? The Prophets of God have been warning Israel for a very long time how they provoke God to anger by participating in such “holy days.” Let’s take a look and see why:
Ferr-agosto is a Roman holiday celebrated in Italy on the “ides of August.” It coincides with the major Roman Catholic Religion feast of the “Assumption of the Virgin.” After a 2-week fast, it’s a time for Italians to go to the beach before summer ends.
Ferragosta comes from the Latin, Feriah Augusti (the festivals of the Emperor, Caesar Augustus, 63 BC – 14 AD) which was introduced back in 18 BC.
Augustus’ predecessor, Julius Caesar had been elected Pontifex Maximus in 63 BCE. Augustus inherited the role about the time of Christ. The Pontifex Maximus, or the Roman high priest, was assumed by the Roman Catholic Pontiff.
Jezebel, described in the Book of Revelation by Jesus as: “that woman which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols…” Even though Jezebel was a woman who existed many years before Christ, she was a shadow of an entity he prophesied to come. One who “commits fornication with the kings or rulers of the earth.” (Revelation 17 & 18) “How much she has glorified herself… for she says in her heart, I sit a queen… I shall see no sorrow.” Just as Jezebel had an army of the “Prophets of Baal,” this one also has an army of priests and prophets who do her bidding, serve and “eat at her table.”
This year marks the 242nd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The founding fathers were fed up with King George of England and his tyrannical way of governing the English colonies from “across the pond.” To declare independence was a treasonous act against George but it proved to be a courageous act for the benefit of America and Liberty and Justice was proclaimed to the captives!
High Cost of Celebration
Since then, the country goes into overdrive to celebrate this day in history with parades, band concerts, bar-b-ques and fireworks. According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend more than $7 billion on cookouts and other celebrations. All done without a thought to those who risked their lives for the freedom to do so.
The story goes that serpents attacked Patrick during a 40 day fast he was undertaking on top of a hill. So, he chased all the serpents of Ireland into the sea with his staff. Of course, all evidence suggests that there were no literal snakes in Ireland long before Patrick arrived in 432AD. This is a weak attempt to connect Patrick with Moses and Aaron’s battle against Pharaoh’s magi in Exo 7:8-13. Many sources interpret this as a metaphor regarding Patrick driving paganism out of Ireland. But let’s consider, what did Patrick really do?
What did Patrick really do?
“Familiar with the Irish language and culture, Patrick chose to incorporate traditional ritual into his lessons of Christianity instead of attempting to eradicate native Irish beliefs. For instance, he used bonfires to celebrate Easter since the Irish were used to honoring their gods with fire. He also superimposed a sun, a powerful Irish symbol, onto the Christian cross to create what is now called a Celtic cross, so that veneration of the symbol would seem more natural to the Irish.” History.com.
Patrick didn’t drive out paganism but meshed it with Christianity. Just as Pope Gregory I later instructed in 601AD and the Catholic Church has done since it’s inception. For more on the history of “St. Patrick” go here.
Adaptation and Accommodation
“From the beginning the Catholic Church had proved itself adaptable and flexible in its dealings with heathens.” “There was division within the Church over the issue of how far missionaries should compromise with pagan customs in order to win converts; the Jesuits led the movement for accommodation and adaptation. Citing the early Christian and medieval practices of …Gregory I, the Jesuits struggled to win over the rest of the Church.” Early Jesuit Missionaries: A Suggestion for Further Study by PETER DUIGNAN
Jesus refers to the Pharisees as those who look good on the outside but within are full of lies, wickedness and deceit. Just as the Catholic Church since its inception has incorporated paganism into its doctrine while purporting to serve God. They look good on the outside but within are full of the dead, both physically and spiritually.
Matt 23:25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within you are full of deceit and wickedness.
Matt 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like unto whitewashed tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
Jesus also refers to the Pharisees as serpents and vipers.
Matt 23:29-33 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! … You serpents, you generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Patrick is credited with driving the serpents out of Ireland when in fact he brought them in!
One hundred and four years ago the Federal Reserve System was established in America. On December 23, 1913 the fruit of a criminal conspiracy came about by an act of Congress cleverly named the Federal Reserve Act, since it is neither federal nor does it hold anything in reserve. It was a usurpation of power given to Congress to control currency by way of the U.S. Constitution. The ‘founding fathers’ of this nation were careful to plan it that way so that a ‘central bank’ would not be able to insert itself and enslave the population here as it had done in Britain and Europe with a debt currency. These tyrants used several tricks to bring it about.
First, the conspirators met in a secret cabal during the Thanksgiving holiday of 1910. Seven members including a U.S. Senator, Nelson Aldrich, stole away to plot and plan to bring about the central banking system to take over control of US currency. They cleverly decided it would be called the Federal Reserve System. That system is designed to take all that the population can produce putting future generations on the hook to pay infinitely for a debt created by them “out of thin air.”
Christmas, December 25th, is celebrated as the day Jesus was born. How did this come to be? Is this celebration a violation of God’s Commands?
Scholars have filled many books with arguments as to when Jesus was born. Nowhere in Scripture is any significance given to a person’s date of birth. It was not until the third century that the festival of Christmas was heard of. It did not gain observers until well into the fourth century. The first recorded “Christian” Christmas celebration on December 25th was in Rome in 336AD. However, by this time, most other religions in the empire were already celebrating the birth of their gods on December 25th. They had been doing so for centuries.
Who is Santa really? And why do parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this practice are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia?
With the rampant pedophilia within the Roman Catholic clergy, why isn’t the connection made between the massive child abuse and this custom of giving the children over to such a fantasy figure of a man who “knows if they’ve been bad or good”?
The image of “Santa Claus” is nothing more than a marketing ploy to make the merchants of the earth rich, while the children are taught to “pray” to him as a “false god” for all their wants and wishes and made to believe that if they’re “good” those wishes will be fulfilled. It is idolatry and evil in the eyes of God and it only serves to provoke Him to anger!
Thanksgiving is not a Holy Day from God. It is a National Holiday created for the purpose of celebrating war victories. The Thanksgiving narrative taught today differs greatly from the original presidential proclamations. The “first Thanksgiving” in 1621, is portrayed as a three-day harvest celebration between the pilgrims and the Native American Indians. Most accounts neglect to acknowledge what happened next in history when the Indians were massacred and driven from their lands. This was hardly the start of a period to remember with thankfulness. The “discovery” of America turned into the start of many wars in a new land.
