This past week was the traditional “State of the Union” speech given by the US president. The purpose of the speech is to give an overview of exactly how the US is fairing these days and lay out an agenda for the future. Trump matched past presidents by touting a great economy, the “military might” of the US and sighted his personally perceived achievements. His facts on these issues are clearly from one perspective, his. He mostly ignored what is really going on in the world and issues that affect the majority of Americans. Trump was sure to end the speech with “God Bless America!” So the question is, “Is God blessing America?”
Many are anticipating the ‘epiphany’ or manifestation of the Messiah in these times of Tribulation. Christ himself revealed how he would manifest and to whom. This article will show the false and the true.
The word ‘epiphany’ is one of Greek origin. It is defined as; 1. to manifest or to show 2. an appearance or manifestation of a divine being 3. a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something (as when something ‘dawns on you’, you suddenly or slowly perceive or understand).
What is Idolatry? Idolatry is reverencing a person or thing, an idol. Read this article to find out more. Idolatry can take on many forms, like the common statues to the lesser recognized Christmas Tree spoken of in Jeremiah 10:1. Jeremiah 10:3-8 “For the customs of the people are vain: for one cuts a tree out of the forest… they deck it with silver and gold… the stock (tree) is a doctrine of vanities”.
The idea of Rapture is NOT in the Bible! “According to some millenarian teaching, it is the “transport” of a “believer” from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.” They actually purport that “the chosen” will be lifted up bodily into the sky, leaving nothing but a pile of clothes behind.
Many characters in Roman mythology, including the Roman progenitor, Aeneas, have been lifted up bodily into heaven. He is recognized by them as the god, Jupiter, from whom they got the Black Madonna. Millenarianism itself is actually based in Zoroastrianism which is an ancient pagan, Persian religion.
On Wednesday, February 14th it happened to be Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and the culmination of Carnival, filled with pagan festivities. It was also Valentine’s Day, another pagan ritual. On that same afternoon a disturbed young man walked into a school and shot and killed 17 people and wounded 15 in what is now being called “one of the deadliest school shootings in modern American history.” Trump calls it a “terrible violence, hatred and evil.” In other words, Great Tribulation! “Copycat” threats are now being made to schools all around the nation. “How should one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight except their Rock has sold them…?” This is all Madness of Mind!
The suspect went to his former school and pulled a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle out of his backpack. This rifle is marketed as the “Crusader,” and comes with a biblical verse from Psalm of David, 144, etched in it: “”Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.”
Oh what a time of pure chaos and confusion! This day for instance, Ash Wednesday, a day of “penance and prayer” for “Christians” to remember their mortality because after all: “from dust thou art and to dust thou shalt return” Coincidentally, it happens to land on Valentine’s Day, a day of indulgent love and sexual rituals with all the candy, surf and turf, cakes and goodies and wine you can eat and drink. What a contradiction! What are you gonna do? The Lenten period is supposed to be a time of penance, abstinence and fasting. The truth of the matter is that it’s all worthless paganism! Just leave it alone.
Have you ever wondered what Valentine’s day is all about? Who is Valentine? Why is this considered a “holy” day? Why do people feel the need to purchase billions of dollars’ worth of gifts annually to show their love for one another? Who is Cupid? What is the significance of the arrow? Why do we associate a naked little boy with “love”?
Origin of Valentine’s day
The practice of Valentine’s day originated in Rome with the feast of Lupercalia. This was the fertility celebration named for Lupa, the she-wolf who suckled the founders of Rome. In this fertility worship practice, inebriated males sacrifice a goat to Venus, wear it’s skin and go through town whipping women with a short strip of leather dipped in blood to promote fertility.
Some think the mass killings and violence that are taking place recently in the United States are due to the second amendment of the U. S. Constitution, which gives citizens the right to bear arms. The original intent of this right was to have a citizenry willing and able to defend the country from foreign invaders if need be. This right is being sabotaged by foreign invaders. As the debate over gun laws continues, sales have soared. Every mass shooting incident has become a “good for business” opportunity so it might be considered a false flag. As “what manner of man the ruler of the city is, such are they that dwell therein.”
An article dated January 5, 2016, Guns in the US: The statistics behind the violence, points out that “The US spends more than a trillion dollars per year defending itself against terrorism…” Taking a look at the US military budget we find: “The U.S. military budget is $824.6 billion. That’s the budget for Fiscal Year 2018 which covers the period October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. Military spending is the second largest federal government expenditure. U.S. military spending is larger than the next nine countries combined.” Over the last ten-year period it adds up to over $7 Trillion! The current National Debt of the US is already over $21 Trillion which comes out to over $63,000 per citizen just in National Debt. They boast of being the “most powerful nation on earth” but who are they afraid of? …
Jesus said, “I have not come but for the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel.” How did these sheep become lost? And why can’t religious leaders who profess to know God answer this question? The prophet Isaiah says, “If they don’t speak according to His Word, it’s because there is no light in them.” Beware of false prophets! “My people have been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray…”
Shepherds Lead the Flock Astray
The following video looks at the tradition of the Christmas Tree and it being commanded against even before the time of Jesus. Religious leaders (the shepherds) don’t teach the people (the sheep) that this ancient tradition is evil to God according to His Word.
All we, Like Sheep… Isaiah 53:6
Truly “Ignorance of God is the greatest evil!” and the “reverence of God is the beginning of knowledge…” If your religious leaders are promoting a tradition that is Evil to God, they are ignorant of God and have no real reverence for Him!
