Saint Patrick’s Day and the driving away of the serpents from Ireland

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.”

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!

The Federal Reserve System – Part 1

Anniversary of the Federal Reserve System

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.

But it's NOT!
Looks like an official Federal Entity!

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 Violates Commands of God

How did Christmas, December 25th, come to be celebrated as the birth of Jesus and is this celebration a violation of God’s Commands?

Great effort and many books have been filled with arguments by scholars as to when Jesus was born, however nowhere in Scripture is any significance given to a person’s date of birth.  The festival of Christmas was not heard of until the third century and did not gain much observance 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 of the other religions in the empire were already celebrating the birth of their gods on December 25th and had been doing so for centuries.

Santa Claus – Saint, false god or Pedophile Priest?

Who is Santa really? And why do parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this practice are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia?

Roman Catholic Bishop "Santa Claus"
Roman Catholic Bishop Nicholas, “patron saint of children and altar boys”

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!

Don’t Give Thanks, Seek God

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.

Reformation or Re-Branding?

October 31st, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.  Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther published his 95-theses document challenging doctrines of the Catholic church.  The importance placed on the practice of selling indulgences, the false security it gave to those who purchased them and the true destination of the collected money offended Luther.

Martin Luther’s 95 Theses

Martin Luther’s 2nd These states “This word (“repent”) cannot be understood as referring to the sacrament of penance, that is, confession and satisfaction, as administered by the clergy.”  These 35 states “They who teach that contrition is not necessary on the part of those who intend to buy souls out of purgatory or to buy confessional privileges, preach unchristian doctrine.”

Luther greatly missed the mark by not denying the existence of purgatory or the ability of the church to sell indulgences.  He was just alarmed that “Indulgence Preachers” were selling indulgences as a catch-all for anyone and any sin even if there was no remorse or contriteness.  In addition, more importance was placed on selling indulgences than teaching the Catholic church’s interpretation of the Word of God.  Luther’s These 53 states “They are the enemies of Christ and the pope who forbid altogether the preaching of the Word of God in some churches in order that indulgences may be preached in others.”

Martin Luther points to the true purpose of indulgences, funding the building of St. Peters Basilica in Rome.  His 86th These states “Again, ‘Why does not the pope, whose wealth is today greater than the wealth of the richest Crassus, build this one basilica of St. Peter with his own money rather than with the money of poor believers?’”

Return to ME

God speaks in mental pictures. If you consider the relationship between a man and a woman as a similitude of the relationship between God and His people, you can understand how He feels when His woman gives her good stuff to another.  In many different places God makes mention of Israel as His wife and He is as her husband.

In Ezekiel, chapter 23, Israel – the northern kingdom of Samaria is spoken of as Ahola and her sister Judah is as Aholibah.  First Ahola commited whoredoms with the Assyrians and she defiled herself with idols.  Hence; idolatry is equated as committing adultery against God.  When Aholibah /Judah saw this, she did more in her whoredoms than her sister.

Both of these sisters committed whoredoms in that they turned away from their husband and doted after other gods.  For this reason, their God gave them over to their lovers and their ways.  For this reason, they have been oppressed and given over to all manner of suffering.  But if they return to Him, He has promised to take them back.

They say, if a man put away his wife and she go from him and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? Shall not that land be greatly polluted? But you have played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, says the Lord.

Lift up your eyes unto the high places, and see where you have not been lain with.  In the ways you have sat for them as the Arabian in the wilderness; and you have polluted the land with your whoredoms and with your wickedness.


American Woman, by Lenny Kravitz

Halloween and the Days of the Dead

Halloween (“Holy Eve”), All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and the Day of the Dead will be here shortly. But what are the roots of these special Days of the Dead? When we trace them all the way back to their origin, we find they came from ancient Egypt when the people were caused to worship and make sacrifices to their dead Pharaoh. The name translated ‘Egypt’ in the Bible is actually ‘Mitzraim’ which was one of the sons of Noah’s son, Ham. The name means “oppression.”

In The Beginning … God Didn’t Have a Mother!

In the Beginning…

In the beginning, God destroyed the earth by water because of their worship practices, oppression and violence.  Soon after the flood, Nimrod – King of Babylon began to deify himself and to do the worship practices that were taking place before the flood.  When Abraham saw what was happening he said: “Woe to my father and this wicked generation, whose hearts are all inclined to vanity, who serve these idols of wood and stone which can neither eat, smell, hear nor speak, who have mouths without speech, eyes without sight, ears without hearing, hands without feeling, and legs which cannot move; like them are those that made them and that trust in them.” (Jasher 11:32)
