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.
Santa Claus seems to be a kind old man bearing gifts. But parents completely ignore the fact that the origins of this character are paganism, materialism, consumerism and pedophilia. They willingly hand their children over to it.
There is rampant pedophilia within the Roman Catholic clergy and has been for quite some time. It should be easy to make the connection between the massive child abuse and this custom of giving the children over to such a ‘god-man’ who “knows if they’ve been bad or good”?
The image of “Santa Claus” is merely a marketing ploy to make the merchants of the earth rich. The children are taught to “pray” to him as a “false god” for all their wants and wishes and to believe that if they’re “good” their wishes will be fulfilled. It is idolatry and evil in the eyes of God and it only serves to provoke Him to anger!
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!
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 committed whoredoms with the Assyrians and she defiled herself with idols. Hence; idolatry is equated with 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 goes 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.
What exactly is idolatry? This probably seems like an odd question. In scripture, the subject of idolatry is one of the most covered topics. The question, however, is not whether God commands against idolatry, which He most assuredly does, but what is it? The argument has been made that when praying to an image or a statue, it is not idolatry as long as it’s done in reverence to the person or “saint” the image represents, and as long as you do it in the worship of and love for God.
In Ex 20 (the Ten Commandments) God commands against worshiping “graven images or any likeness” stating,
“You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them” Exodus 20:5
God is so adamant about this that it takes three verses to cover this one commandment. He refers to the idolaters as “them that hate Me.”
Webster defines idolatry as “the worship of a physical object as a god.” This is a very simple and concise definition, but it does not cover the full scope. What about the worship of God through a physical object? Does God appreciate your worship even if it comes through a statue or a painting or a “holy” wall or a big black box? As long as you are worshiping God why does it matter how you do it?
