Artificial Intelligence: Our Best Friend Or Our Worst Enemy?

Siri. Ok Google. Alexa. Amazon Echo. Amazon Dot. This type of artificial intelligence is a technology that humans have unwittingly let into our homes without first thinking about the possible long-term implications of such “technology”….ESPECIALLY the spiritual implications!

Okay, lets start with the basics, here. First of all, why does the software only respond to ONE name and one name, ONLY? I always found that to be a bit creepy. (Almost as if some demon was “summoned” into the device or something? But maybe that’s just me). And even if it COULD respond to multiple names, who or what could possibly be behind it?

I’ve noticed that several people have taken to social media to report that their “Amazon Alexa” or “Amazon Echo” was “acting strange”. (Strange, to say the least). Others, on the other hand, have said that their Echo will order things online without their permission OR “speak in demonic voices”.

Demonic voices?

Well folks, that definitely caught my attention a bit. And then I thought about it for awhile…..truly thought about it. And that’s when it hit me.

In fact, one day, I was over at someone’s house with an Amazon echo. We were talking in a room that was 2 whole rooms away and I could’ve sworn I heard the device “demonically growling” for a few short seconds. It was CREEPY!

But then again, I kind’ve just shoved it to the back of my mind at the time, telling myself I probably just “imagined it” or heard it on the TV or something. I shoved that thought to the back of my mind and thought nothing more of it. Until I encountered the stories of OTHER PEOPLE who said they heard THEIR devices doing “strange things” like that.

And that’s when I came to the ultimate spiritual conclusion: “Speaking/interacting” with VERBAL “artificial intelligence” is really no different than speaking with a DEMON!

Now, don’t get me wrong folks, for I KNOW how crazy and sensational that sounds, but it’s true. The “technology” records and recognizes your voice, voice patterns and “preferences”. And then, over time, AS it learns more and more about you, it becomes a walking encyclopedia of your “every word or move” inside your home! In fact, users have stated that their “devices” can “hear them” all the way across the room! How does that NOT strike people as “creepy?”

But yet, here’s the most weirdest thing of all. When people ask their “Alexa” if she works for NSA or the CIA here in America, she IMMEDIATELY shuts off! Wow. That’s very eerrry folks….and yet, VERY telling…….Interesting…….But then again, if they asked if she worked for Satan, would she respond any differently? 

But then it got me thinking even further. What about the talking, interactive DOLLS/STUFFED ANIMALS that kids like to play with these days? Might they also be a roosting ground for “demonic spirits” to enter INTO?

When I was a kid, they had this interactive/talking teddy bear that held a cassette tape inside his belly. And at night, if the parents didn’t want to read to their children, all the child had to do was click “play” on the cassette tape inside the teddy bear’s “belly” and the “Teddy” would then open up his mouth and move his “paws” a bit and “talk” and audibly recite to children his bedtime story book (which I guess was sort’ve a very early version of today’s “audio books”, in a sense).

And I just remember this ONE particular time I was playing with my “talking teddy bear” in the middle of the day when my mom walked in to the room. I told her I wanted to “turn Teddy off”. I tried to hit the eject button on the cassette player inside Teddy’s belly. But the tape wouldn’t eject. I kept hitting the eject button over and over again, but Teddy just kept “rambling on”. My mom then told me to look for an “off” button on his back, only it wouldn’t turn off or I couldn’t find the “off” button (one of the tw0).

My mom then suggested I try to close his mouth with my fingers and that maybe that would trigger him to turn off or the tape to stop playing. So I tried it but my finger got stuck in his mouth and I couldn’t get it out! My finger was STUCK…..COMPLETELY! That’s when his “motor” started running really fast, making these terrible grinding noises and I could smell this burning “smoking smell” coming from him, while at the same time, I noticed he had red glowing eyes and could’ve SWORN I heard him say two times, “Satan! Satan!”

My mom stood over the thing and had a total look of TERROR upon her face. And by THAT time, I was crying HYSTERICALLY since I couldn’t get my finger unstuck from Teddy’s mouth, because his eyes were “flickering red” and because of the loud, grinding noises of his “motor” and because of the awful, awful “burnt smoky” smell emanating from it! 

I remember briefly looking up at my ceiling and saying or thinking something along the lines of JESUS, HELP ME! and almost IMMEDIATELY, Teddy “growled” and let go of my finger and I immediately dropped him on my bed, with his motor “still spinning” on my bed.

My mother then started to slightly tap on Teddy’s back and stomach, trying to get his motor to stop. She FINALLY got it to stop and then turned to me and said: Sorry honey but I think we’re gonna have to throw Teddy out as there’s obviously something very wrong with him!

I was both saddened (as, up until that point, Teddy had been my favorite toy) but also RELIEVED (I had never before seen “Teddy” act in such a “hateful, terrifying manner”). Over the years, mom just chalked it up to what she called a “mechanical malfunction”. But I think, deep deep down, she knows better. 

But looking back on that (especially in light of the events of most recently, compared with other people’s testimonies about how their “Amazon echos” were “acting strange”), I can only come to ONE conclusion: VERBAL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE HAS THE PROPENSITY TO BE INHABITED BY DEMONS/DEMONIC SPIRITS!

How is it then that more people are not seeing this? But then again folks, that’s the problem these days. We’re SO blinded by Google, by Amazon, by the MEDIA, by Popular Culture that we just don’t see things for what they really are! Especially when those things are staring us right in the face!

Satan has used MANY WEAPONS against mankind in the last several years (the entertainment industry, peer pressure, social culture, lawsuits etc. against Christians, the media) to brainwash the masses into a more “liberal society”. And so NOW his greatest weapon of FURTHER brainwashing the masses has become the verbal leg of “artificial intelligence”.

Who DOESN’T want an “Amazon Echo” or “Amazon Alexa” these days, right? Even I myself was (at the VERY first) slightly “tempted” by such technology. But then again, that’s how Satan rolls. In the bible, consorting with demons is a no no. So Satan had to think up a way in which consorting with demons was both “fun”, “cool”, “popular”, “convenient”, “cheap”, “innovative” and “easy”. Enter Verbal Artificial Intelligence. And the sad thing is that most people don’t even KNOW they’re actually interacting with “demons”.

Many a skeptic would probably say: “Alexa is not a demon”. But lets do some further research into this, folks.

Here’s Elon Musk IN HIS OWN WORDS:

quote-with-artificial-intelligence-we-are-summoning-the-demon-elon-musk-85-1-0129

At a recent MIT conference, he was quoted as saying,With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon“. He further goes on to say, “Ya know, in all those stories where, there’s a guy with a pentagram [PENTAGRAM?] and the holy water, and he’s like, yeah, sure, he can control the demon”, then smugly replied, “It didn’t work out”.

Those comments are both very chilling and telling at the same time. But what he forgot to mention is that verbal artificial intelligence (as a whole) is very likely summoning OF the demon. Folks, do you REALLY think all the people behind these “technologies” are “Christian” at all? I haven’t come across ONE. (Not to say that they’re not possibly out there somewhere, in the robotics world, I just have yet to come across one that’s truly “Christian”). That should tell you something, folks!

But interesting enough, he further went on to say that he sees (or knows?) that artificial intelligence is even MORE dangerous than nuclear weapons! (Wow! That statement just blew me away, with its wide-spreading implications!) Because it’s almost like he’s inferring that the type of society in the movie “I-robot” will soon become our actual, living reality!

Does anyone else remember the movie “I-robot” with Will Smith? And how, over time, the robots became more intelligent than the humans and tried to OVERTAKE THEM? Now, in the year 2017, this “plot scenario” doesn’t seem so far-fetched! (Scary, INDEED, folks!) Even Elon Musk HIMSELF seems concerned about that, as does Steven Hawking! 

In fact, just came across THIS news article the other day: It should send proverbial chills down one’s spine! “Self-thinking robot escapes lab….TWICE”: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/intelligent-robot-remembers-learns-could-8248559

Another thing that really gets me about the “Alexa” app is how the whole entire family often gets involved, even down to the very tiny toddlers! And, if Elon Musk himself is “hinting” to us all that artificial intelligence is “summoning of the demon” (in general?), should we as Christians be concerned at all? The answer is a resounding YES!

Folks, we’re living in the Last Days! We REALLY, truly got to think about what we’re allowing into our hearts & into our homes! Many Christian people (as well as otherwise) have always denounced having Ouija boards in the home. But probably not alot of people are thinking about the long-term spiritual implications of having an “Alexa”, “Siri”, etc. in their homes, am I right?

And what’s REALLY ironic here is that if you were to try to REMOVE an “Alexa” from someone’s home, they’d cry and freak out (not so much because of the forceful removal) but because their Alexa “is their baby”. They’re SO attached to it, that they’re not willing to part with it (even after being shown the biblical truth about it). For a Christian, the answer’s pretty simple, unplug it or remove it. But for the non-Christian/non-practicing Christian, it’s not so simple, is it?

Folks, I know this is gonna sound a bit crazy so just bare with me, here. But “Alexa” was honestly designed by Satan and his demons (BEHIND the scenes – with many an Amazon engineer being unawares, even) for HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE! Don’t believe me? Those Christians out there that own an “Alexa”?…….Unplug it. (Note: See how HARD it is? It sounds like such a simple thing, doesn’t it? UNPLUG IT. But yet, it’s NOT! There’s this over-riding urge to NOT unplug it. And if you DO unplug it, you’re tempted to not throw it out and keep (ESPECIALLY if it was given to you as a “gift”, am I right, folks? And THAT, my friend, is where the HIGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE’S coming in!)

The bible says that Satan’s angry and knows his time is short. And as time goes on, his time on this Earth gets shorter & shorter & shorter. Thus, he’s CONSTANTLY gotta crank out more and more and more ways to ENSLAVE, ENSNARE & DECEIVE THE MASSES!

Gay marriage was ONE way in which he did it. Gay adoption and Abortion another way. And simultaneously? Amazon Alexa AND Transgender rights are just ANOTHER way. There’s SSOO MMAANNYYY doorways leading to Satan in this world (here in the year 2017), that it’s honestly MIND-BOGGLING!

But yet, there is only ONE true, spiritual doorway to Eternal Salvation AND Eternal Life and THAT is through the Lord Jesus Christ! See folks? Notice the difference, there?

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: FOR WIDE IS THE GATE, AND BROAD IS THE WAY, THAT LEADETH TO DESTRUCTION, AND MANY THERE BE WHICH GO IN THEREAT: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it– [Matthew 7:13-14

Translation? VERY FEW people make it to what most people would consider “heaven” (The bible calls it New Jerusalem), someday. VERY FEW. Let that sink it for a bit. Think about it. Matthew 7:13-14 implies that only a SMALL NUMBER will be saved in his great, heavenly name! The rest will ETERNALLY PERISH in THE LAKE OF FIRE, in which Jesus Christ says in Matthew 8:12 “But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth“. Which means that MILLIONS upon MILLIONS will find themselves eternally CAST INTO the LAKE OF FIRE (INCLUDING “Wayward Christians!) 

So, to put this in perspective, there’s about 7.5 BILLION people on the Earth right now. The U.S. population (around January 2017) clocked in around 324,310,000-ish. Out of both of those population numbers, about 75% of people in America identify as “Christian”, compared with about 36% Christians worldwide and about 34% Catholics worldwide.

Now, if you were to FURTHER break down that 75% that identify as Christian, a 2016 poll reveals that 55% of Christians now actually SUPPORT “gay marriage”, while only 37% oppose it. And then you can break it EVEN FURTHER down. OF that 37% that opposes “gay marriage”, how many of them live by BIBLICAL TRUTH?

MATTHEW 7, 21 TO 23, KJV

Translation? Just because you CALL yourself a “Christian” does NOT mean that you are TRULY Christian and/or are automatically “saved” in Jesus Christ!

MATTHEW 15, KJV

Translation? Matthew 15’s talking about the people that proclaim Jesus Christ with their LIPS and during “church services” but do NOT honor OR obey him by the way they live their lives (on a daily or weekly basis!) 

For example: A person is a church-going person but yet, they hold a severe grudge towards a coworker or a family member. They are NOT truly living in Christ! They proclaim Christ with their LIPS but their LIVES and their ACTIONS are FAR from HIM! Sound familiar?

We’ve ALL been guilty of something similar in our lives at one point in time or another. But when it becomes a NON-REPENTING pattern, as in, we start to feel (over time) JUSTIFIED in our sins, that’s what Jesus is talking about in Matthew 15:8 when he states, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me“.

BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR FROM ME are the key words, here. When it comes to things like “verbal artificial intelligence”, what does it mean to have a heart that’s FAR from Christ? Answer: To have one’s heart MORE “given over” to “Alexa/Alexa app” than to Christ! To love “technology” more than Christ! To love “Alexa”/using Alexa more than Christ! To love “modern day convenience” more than Christ! 

So to those Christians out there who own an “Alexa”, I ask this of YOU today: Where is YOUR heart? Because remember that a simple, innocent “fascination” with “Alexa’s technology” can turn into a full-on ADORATION AND OBSESSION/WORSHIP OF “ALEXA!” In fact, “Alexa” serves as a DEMONIC IDOL to MANY! 

But question: what are we, as Christian individuals (as a whole) doing in the FIRST PLACE, talking to “Alexa” when we should INSTEAD be talking with CHRIST, in repentance and in prayer? 

And while I do NOT condemn Amazon as a whole (I myself shop there for a GREAT many things and absolutely love online shopping through them), I would have people to think twice before ordering an Amazon “Echo”. Is it WORTH losing your eternal salvation over, folks? Think about that long and hard before you buy one! 

I pray that all who read this will see the SPIRITUAL DANGERS of the “Alexa”/”Alexa app”, as well as all verbal artificial intelligence systems, etc., AND that they will re-examine their spiritual walk with Christ and to self-examine rather or not Christ is TRULY the centerpiece of their lives or not. And remember: That goes just as for me as for anyone else, here! 

 

 

 

What Satan Doesn’t Want You Knowing About Abortion, LGBT, Etc.

America was founded upon the notions called “life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness”. Satan’s fall was founded upon the notions of pride, greed, envy, anger & deceit. In the year 2017, pretty much all of these concepts were put into the melting pot called “Modern-Day Christianity”. And many people are none the wiser. Why? Answer: Because Satan successfully mixes truth WITH lies. 

Let us look at a few examples, here:

  1. The “Sunday Sabbath”/”Jesus Rose On Sunday”
  2. Abortion/Women’s Rights
  3. LGBT/Human Rights
  4. Transgenderism/Human Rights

Okay, lets now take a deeper look at #1, The “Sunday Sabbath”. Back in ancient times, the Roman Emperor Constantine, along with the help of “Catholic bishops”, proclaimed Christianity as the official religion of the Roman Empire. 

“What’s so wrong with THAT?” someone may protest. “That sounds nice…..that sounds like Constantine was trying to PROTECT Christians from persecution”.

But lets unpack this a bit….there were many, many “Pagans” living in the Roman Empire at that time. And the Roman Catholic Church (and Constantine) wanted to control as many of the Roman “populace” as possible. So how do that? Answer: Through religion. 

But the Pagans didn’t LIKE many of the BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICES……so Constantine had to “appeal” to the Pagans. And the ONLY way he could do that was by PAGANIZING CHRISTIANITY, and that’s exactly what he did (with the help of the Catholic bishops, ofcourse). 

So essentially, what Constantine did was spread a FALSE, PAGANIZED *FORM* of Christianity that had no true, biblical merits. Why? Because he (along with the help of the Catholic bishops) CHANGED THE SABBATH, from the 7th-day biblically-mandated Saturday to Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!

(And interestingly enough, if you look around the Catholic Church today in the Vatican, you will see ALL SORTS of remnants of “sun worship” – in fact, the “halos” you see around “Catholic saints” are supposed to represent SUN HALOS/SUNS!) 

That was the start of it. But he didn’t stop THERE. No……He took it even a step FURTHER. He OUTLAWED fasting, Biblical Feasts, and ABSTAINING from work on Saturday, the TRUE SABBATH. He OUTLAWED biblical feasts by calling them “Jewish feasts”. And then, sometime later on, the false/Paganized holidays of “Christmas” and “Easter” were celebrated, which actually came from ANCIENT PAGAN SEX FESTIVALS (Saturnalia of Christmas, and Feast of Ishtar, fertility “goddess” of Easter).

Because do you REALLY think Satan would’ve let the Roman Catholic Church (key word being ROMAN) stand if it were REALLY, TRULY following the bible? Think about it, folks! The ONLY reason Satan’s left the Roman Catholic Church alone and let it PROSPER beyond anything imaginable that this Earth’s ever seen is because it, the Roman Catholic Church, is NOT following the bible (atleast, they’re not following the Jesus Christ of the BIBLE, anyways……..but another “Jesus“, altogether……..)

And over time, the Roman Catholic Church has gained such WIDE, global influence to the point that even many NON-BELIEVERS, sadly, consider The Catholic Church/Pope/Vatican to be THE PREMIER AUTHORITY on Christianity! “Well, the Catholic Church has made alot of contributions to history, such as the first printing of the bible in the English language, etc.”

See how Satan works, folks? See how he mixes truth with lies? He’ll allow Christians to go to church every week because they (as a whole) are going to church on the WRONG DAY/WRONG SABBATH (Sun-day, venerable worship day of THE SUN!) Just like he’ll allow Christians to be Christians since they celebrate in the FALSE/PAGANIZED HOLIDAYS OF CHRISTMAS & EASTER!

(Plus, have you ever noticed how these two holidays actually MOCK Jesus Christ by equating him with “Santa Claus” and the “Easter bunny? Tell me what those things have to do with Christ! Anything? Didn’t think so!!!!!)

We know from the bible that God worked for SIX DAYS, then rested on, CONSECRATED and SANCTIFIED the 7th day of the week, SATURDAY, as HIS HOLY 7TH DAY SABBATH. So for MORTAL MAN to come along and CHANGE IT? It’s like saying that God made a mistake when he made the 7th Day Sabbath! THINK ABOUT IT, FOLKS!

And when people starting waking up to that fact, Satan started a “Resurrection Sunday” Movement. Have you ever noticed that, folks? Pastors preaching that “Jesus rose on Sunday morning”. But if you read the bible between the lines, it’s clearly apparent that Jesus rose at the END of Saturday evening and was ALREADY RISEN by EARLY Sunday morning, he didn’t rise DURING Sunday morning. So the “Resurrection Sunday” thing is CLEARLY A LIE!

Now lets go to example #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. It really all started in the 60’s, during the “Free Love/Hippy Movement’. That’s what really got all this “dire feminism” thing started. And WHO do you think is behind the Hippy Movement? Any guesses, folks? It sure as heck wasn’t Jesus Christ of the bible that started it! (And P.S.: did you know that the Peace Sign is actually supposed to be a MOCKING of Christ?) 

“We don’t have to listen to authority, we don’t have to answer to anybody, we have free will, we can do whatever the heck we want”. My, my, my, one would rather think that it was a “fallen angel rally”, not any type of “human rally”, am I right? Don’t those sentiments echo almost exactly what the fallen angels likely said to themselves/amongst themselves when they thought they no longer had to follow God as the Head Authority? Think about it, folks!

And out of “hippy-ism” sprang FEMINISM. Basically, this “Movement” ATTACKED Jesus Christ, ATTACKED THE BIBLE, ATTACKED the Traditional Family, ATTACKED traditional gender role models and “worshiped the woman”. At first, women were fighting for the right to ENTER into the workforce. And then, they wanted the right to NOT have to have a baby. That’s where the “Abortion fight” came in.

“I’m not ready for a baby yet, or right now”. Whatever happened to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY? Does THAT not matter, anymore? Whenever a woman protests: “my body, my choice”, she instead is essentially saying: “I want the right to have unprotected sex with no biological consequences”. 

True, some women are raped and that’s a horrible, horrible thing. But the baby itself didn’t rape them. Why is their life more important than the baby’s life? Can they REALLY imagine the baby within their wombs saying: “Please kill me mommy, I don’t WANT to live?” 

Oddly enough, long-time research shows that women that kept and raised their babies born out of rape were much, much better off psychologically and emotionally, rather than those raped women who chose to abort. Abortion is something that stays with you for YEARS afterwards (in your mind, heart, body and spirit) and there’s no escaping it! Not to mention that many raped women say that keeping & raising their babies actually HEALED THEM, psychologically! Who ever would’ve thought?

But the truth is, abortion does NOT make a pregnant woman unpregnant but rather, the mother of a dead baby. And I don’t exactly see women dancing in the streets and being all high and emotionally pumped up and JOYFULLY HAPPY after having an abortion. So I can only guess that abortion is NOT so liberating to women, as the “Feminist Movement” claims. 

But Satan is like that high-payed lawyer that tries to LURE women into the sin of murder: some women here that small still voice that says: “Hey, YOU – the woman – should have rights, TOO! You shouldn’t HAVE to have a kid if you’re not ready to!” But tell me. If people were in the streets protesting: “I should have the right to murder”, other people would go BALLISTIC and have those people arrested for “incitement”, etc. Yet sadly, in today’s world, when women march in protest for the right to MURDER THEIR BABIES, the world even doesn’t blink an eye & turns the other way. 

And during an abortion, the baby’s heart stops and they are pulled from the womb, LIMB BY LIMB, with forceps! What if someone were to pull today’s modern women or men apart, LIMB BY LIMB and then try to say it was their “right” to do so? What a sick, murderous, degenerate nation we live in today, folks! A woman’s right to sin is more important than the life of her baby! 

Even women that are MARRIED are no exception. Some of them want their abortions, TOO! And for WHAT? Their lives are more important than their baby’s life BECAUSE….?? The point I’m trying to make here is that MURDER should NEVER, EVER be a “right” in this country – for ANY REASON – and yet, sadly, it is (in the case of Abortion and Euthania!) 

Abortion is NOT about “Women’s Rights”, it’s about TWO things and TWO things, ONLY: killing and $$$$$$$ profits! 

The bond that a mother has with her unborn child is one of THE MOST precious bonds in existence! So for any one person, name or organization to come along and try to DESTROY that bond and to do so for $$$$ profit?!!!!! Those are the TRUE PEOPLE who are “Anti-Woman”, and “Anti-Woman’s Rights”.

Planned Parenthood even “complains” about “Birthright Centers”, places that help women RAISE their babies and find necessary resources for doing so! It’s not enough that they’re ALREADY killing babies for $$$ profit! It would rather seem that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want ANY babies born, PERIOD! They apparently HATE life! That’s because Jesus Christ IS life! And he’s the Maker & Giver of it! We were all made in God’s holy image; male and female!

Now lets move on to #’s 3 and 4, LGBT/Transgenderism/Human Rights. It’s really no different than #2, Abortion/Women’s Rights. Human rights. Sounds good on the surface, doesn’t it? But what is it REALLY ABOUT, underneath all the “media propaganda” layers? Lets have a look.

The whole point of the LGBT Pride Parades and/or Transgenderism Movement (correct me if I’m wrong) is to convince the outside world that what they’re doing is “normal”. Because hey, if it’s “normal”, then it should (theoretically) be a “human right”, correct?

Only, the thing is, it’s NOT “normal” (not according to the bible AND not according to many psychologists). In fact, back in the 70’s, the Diagnostic Manual described “homosexuality/transgenderism” as “abnormal/mental illness”. And what’s interesting to note here is that the psychologists behind the manual weren’t even particularly religious, from what I note. And so nobody can make the argument that these psychologists were “religious” per say or that they were “just acting with the times”. They saw gender as “truly binary”, set in stone and anything outside of that was to them, “biologically abnormal”.

But then, “homosexual activists” put pressure on the APA to REMOVE that listing from the Diagnostic Manual. They wanted it to be known that it was a “choice”, that they were simply “choosing” to be that way, from what I read. But NOW – in the year 2017 – they’ve changed their tune. NOW they want people to think they were “born that way” and “can’t help it”. And ironically, I’ve most recently read about a survey done, that when homosexual people were asked if they’d be willing to take a pill if it “undid their gayness”, the overwhelming majority said no. Interesting.

A prominent gay activist HIMSELF most recently that: “there IS no such thing as a gay gene” https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/foremost-uk-gay-activist-admits-there-is-no-gay-gene

Not to mention a few academic/scientific studies confirm the same:

https://www.onenewsnow.com/science-tech/2016/08/23/gay-gene-no-scientific-evidence-for-it

https://concernedwomen.org/images/content/bornorbred.pdf

http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-there-no-gay-gene

So….WHY do homosexuals and transgenders want people to think that they’re behavior is “normal?” Well, the first thing is that they’re in denial. They DON’T see what they’re doing as “Sin” at all (with many not even believing in the concept of “sin” to begin with, for that matter). While yet others likely think that, maybe, just maybe, if they can get MAN/MANKIND to approve it, then maybe that means that they could also get Jesus Christ to approve it. Because, using secular reasoning, “if too many human beings approve it, then God can’t be against it”.

But the thing to note here is that even if 99% of people on Earth APPROVED of the “sin” of homosexuality/transgenderism, it would STILL be a sin in Jesus’s eyes! And if it came down to only ONE person on the planet (and their close family, perhaps) being saved in the End, then only one person (+ any possible close family members, by proxy) would be saved! (i.e. Let us not forget Noah & his family during the time of God’s Wrath and the Great Flood Upon the Earth!)

But lets unpack this a bit. If/when a gay/trans person says they were “born that way”, they’re essentially calling God/Jesus Christ A LIAR! Not to mention that they’re ALSO saying in a sense that they HATE the way God/Jesus Christ made them! So how is that NOT sin, folks? Think about it!

ALL the LGBT fight is about (essentially) is THE RIGHT TO SIN WITHOUT EARTHLY CONSEQUENCES! That’s all it REALLY boils down to, after one has “unpacked” and “unpeeled” all the layers of what I call the “Onion of Unrighteousness”.

So the bad news is that no, they were NOT born that way and science (AND the bible) proves it! But the GOOD NEWS is that, BECAUSE they were NOT born that way, Jesus Christ can STILL change them and turn them INTO the person Jesus had ORIGINALLY intended them to be!

Jesus Christ (the true, BIBLICAL Jesus Christ of the bible) can TAKE AWAY their “transgendered feelings” and their “homosexual attractions”. He can BIND the homosexual/transgender demons that plague a person. He can HEAL them and SET THEM FREE from the homosexual/transgender demons, and YES, they are demons, folks; demonic spirits who (much like Satan) lay in wait for whatever soul they can “capture” and “deceive”. 

Sadly, many LGBT folks are “easy pickins” for such “demons” since they’re “broken people” to begin with! Satan constantly searches out “broken people” since they’re much easier “spiritual captures” as I call them. But a person that’s SPIRITUALLY DELIVERED BY Jesus Christ from such demons is no longer a “spiritual capture” but becomes a spiritual VICTOR!

ALL humans have the fundamental right to be “respected”. For example, ALL humans have the right to go into a grocery store and buy their groceries in peace without store managers saying: “Oh, I’m sorry, only blonde-haired people can enter into the store today”. Every human has a right to be respected for biological, physical traits they can NOT help. 

But when people start demanding rights for things that they technically CAN help and that are UNBIBLICAL and UNREASONABLE in scope, (“I should have the right to go out in public dressed as something I’m physically not”, “I should have the right to murder my unborn baby for convenience”, “I should have the right to use the womens’ bathroom, even though I’m not a true/physical woman”), Houston, we’ve got a problem!

Same-sex activity/transgenderism is actually A BEHAVIOR, not an “inherent trait!” Whereas, heterosexuality is an inherent trait. John-Hopkins research has previously pointed out that homosexuality/transgenderism is NURTURE (social environment) rather than NATURE (biology). There is NO gay gene and folks, they won’t EVER find one, because it simply DOES NOT EXIST!

And the day when the “Leftist Extreme” CLAIM they “have” found one? Trust me, that’ll be the day that they’ll have to resort to “faking” the scientific find of finding one, just like they FAKED the “find” of the “Missing Link” – Ida – a mere skull of a LEMUR, HA! https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/03/100302131719.htm

So what’s the moral of the story here, folks? Don’t believe ANYTHING the Secular Media tells ya. Heck, even those SO-CALLED pictures of the planet Mars and this or that find on Mars, with all the pictures being black and white and really, really “hazy?” I almost laugh every single time and say to myself: FAKE, FAKE, FAKEZOID! To me, the ONLY thing that’s true is the gospel of our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ Almighty! 

“God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged”

– Romans 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rise of the “Selfie” & “Self-Worship”

Back in the 90’s, if you took a photographic “selfie” of any sort, it generally meant you “had no friends”. But here, in the year 2017, the concept of the “selfie” has turned into a whole other meaning, completely. In today’s society & culture, if you DON’T take a “selfie”, it socially means that you have no friends or that you’re “not cool”.

But what exactly is “the core” of a “selfie”? Answer: SELF-WORSHIP/WORSHIP OF SELF! I think alot of people are forgetting that. Today’s culture is all about me, me, me…..How will this or that make ME look? How will such n’ such benefit ME? What’s in it for ME? How does this relationship/job/friendship/etc. benefit ME?

Not to sound too brash here but today’s people are just IN LOVE WITH THEMSELVES! You go to someone’s Facebook page, for instance, and they have a bazillion photos of themselves from every which angle. And just think: They have to personally download/upload EACH and every single one. Plus some of the photos are even duplicates!

Now, don’t get me wrong here……I’m not saying that EVERY single person on Facebook is self-absorbed or that Facebook is the Devil or anything like THAT….But, over time, Facebook has evolved from its very humble beginnings to slowly becoming a more and more “self-absorbed media platform/narcissist’s dream”, as time goes on.  

And then you have Youtube. People that both “worship” Youtube (as though it’s some sort of “god”, I kid you not) and people that “utilize” Youtube to BE worshiped by others. Just think of all those videos from what I call “the million viewers club”. If they get over a million views on their video, then they’re eligible to be a Youtube partner and get payed a cut from “each” and every view of their videos (from how I understand it?) Basically, Youtube has become a “fame gone mad” type thing.

And these people that make millions of Youtube videos each year and make money off them………am I judging them? No. Not at all. But I DO kind’ve feel sorry for them in a small sense. Because when they say things like, “I’d like to think my subscribers”, or do crazy/dangerous things because their “subscribers asked them to”, etc., it’s like they’re turning to PEOPLE/SUBS for fulfillment, instead of to something much bigger and greater than them (i.e. Jesus Christ/Salvation) for fulfillment. And it just breaks my heart! They have NO IDEA of what they’re missing out on! 

But again, it’s really no different than the feeling that many famous celebrities feel when people “worship them”. Over time, they start to feel invisible and start worshiping THEMSELVES! And personally, Satan couldn’t be more the happier when that happens for it means just one more for the “eternal burn pile”, someday.

Think of Satan like the bad kid that acts up in class. He KNOWS he’s going to get in trouble with the teacher for “being bad” and be punished “real bad” afterwards but he wants to try to corrupt as many of the “good kids” in the class that he possibly can so that THEY get punished, too. His stealthy “warfare tactics” know no bounds! 

Self-worship is something that Satan was originally guilty of, up in heaven, during “The Fall”. So now, Satan wants humans to be like HIM: a self-deluded, self-worshiping creature! A creature who’s ANGRY with God/Jesus Christ, ANGRY with the bible & its commandments/decrees and ANGRY with everything that’s righteous & holy!

He’s likely full of “silent fear”. I think deep within the depths of his being, he KNOWS he can never be equal to God/Jesus Christ and he fears losing! But he likely masks that fear with DENIAL & DEFIANCE! For, he likely reasons, if he can mask his fear with denial & defiance, perhaps no-one (especially humans) will ever know how secretly “running scared” he is, underneath it all.

But going back to the concept of what I’ll call “selfie worship/self-worship” among the human race. Narcissism/Vanity & Pride are two of Satan’s top traits and now he’s trying to make as many human beings like this as possible! Why? To take them away from Almighty God/Jesus Christ/Salvation!

Because believe it or not folks, OUR suffering (physical, emotional & spiritual) pleases Satan! In fact, he’s quite HAPPY knowing that several humans will be thrown into the lake of fire at God’s Judgement, someday! He’s HAPPY knowing that several people are being snatched from Jesus Christ on a daily basis! He’s nothing short of evil/evil-minded!

Not to mention that people are SO hung up on taking “the perfect selfie” photograph these days, that several people have even DIED or gotten SERIOUSLY injured from it! This is NO laughing matter, folks! This is very, very serious!  

http://list25.com/25-people-who-died-while-trying-to-take-a-selfie/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_selfie-related_injuries_and_deaths

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: Folks, we’re all being preconditioned on a VERY LARGE MASS SCALE to think/do the following:

  1. Worship Self/Be “Selfie-Obsessed”
  2. Worship Other Humans (i.e. Celebrities, Youtube “stars”, etc.)
  3. Accept the LGBT Agenda
  4. Accept the Trans Agenda
  5. Accept the G.S.A. Agenda
  6. Accept the New World Order SYSTEM
  7. Accept Abortion
  8. Accept “Gay Marriage/Gay Adoption/Gay Families”
  9. Accept Anti-Bible Rhetoric & Sentiments 
  10. Accept Mockery of Jesus & Christians
  11. Accept Drugs/Drug Use As “Socially Acceptable”
  12. Accept Any and ALL Liberal/Social Justice Causes
  13. ETC.

In fact, sadly, many of today’s problems have to do with “Social Justice Causes”. And while many “Social Justice Causes” might “seem” good on the surface, most of them are about as evil as can be! They MOCK Christ, they MOCK the bible, they MOCK the traditional family, they MOCK Christianity, plus they align PERFECTLY with Satan’s Will, NOT God’s Will!

For example: Abortion. “Social Justice Warriors” make it “seem” as though the “fight for abortion” is the “fight for women’s rights”. But lets peel back the layers a bit. What DO abortion procedures actually DO? Essentially, they make a pregnant woman an “unpregnant woman” (or rather, the mother of a “dead baby”). And how do they do that? They either stop the babies heart and/or RIP the baby out of the womb with forceps, LIMB BY LIMB! 

And just like selfies, abortion can even be likened to a FORM of “self-worship” (worship of oneself over one’s baby). Now tell me…..Why should women have the right to MURDER their babies? Especially considering that THEY THEMSELVES weren’t aborted in the womb and received the right to life! A baby’s heartbeat starts beating at just 21 DAYS after conception! 3 weeks, folks! 3 weeks! Plus research has shown that babies as young as 8 weeks (and probably even less) can FEEL PAIN! 

And yet, some of these “Social Justice Warriors” are trying to advocate for abortion at ANY point during pregnancy, even up until birth! THAT’S SPIRITUALLY DISGUSTING, FOLKS! What a “murderous/narcissistic spirit” we have roaming here in America, today! 

When a person decides who lives and who dies (think Euthanasia, for instance), that could be considered “playing god”. So how is abortion any different? If a woman’s right to “convenience” trumps a baby’s right to live, the woman (in a direct sense) is “playing god” (rather she realizes it or not). She’s worshiping her own body/reproductive system, rather than the one True God [Jesus Christ Almighty] who CREATED her reproductive system for marriage/children purposes! 

Selfies and vacation pics (in and of themselves) aren’t inherently evil, it’s oftentimes the intent behind posting them on social media that makes them evil. If I, for example, have a friend take a picture of me in front of a building in Germany and me and that friend/immediate family members are the only ones that see it, that’s one thing. But if I’m posting it on social media to “brag” about and “showcase” my so-called Germany vacation to the world wide web, that’d be quite another thing, altogether.

Now, if I were to somehow give glory to Jesus Christ FOR the so-called Germany vacation and showcased THAT thankfulness on social media under the picture captions or something, that would be ONE thing. But lets face it. Most people who post HUNDREDS of images on social media of, for example, their vacation to France, want other people to see “how great their life is”. Am I wrong, here? 

Which reminds me of some of the Youtube vloggers. Some of them are showcasing their entire lives on Youtube (everything from the first date to the kitchen sink and everything in between). And true, they might possibly be making money from those videos (which might be why they do it in the first place) but what many psychologists are saying these days is that these people are unfulfilled in their normal day-to-day lives. So for them, Youtube/social media is like an alternate universe where they can be something, be “someone”.

But folks, that’s what the sad thing is, really. Today’s “secular culture” (especially among young people) is UNFULFILLING. Today’s young people keep searching for that someone or something that will make them feel complete:

  1. “If I get a million subscribers on Youtube, I’ll feel complete”
  2. “If the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of gay marriage, I’ll feel complete”
  3. “If I meet that special someone, I’ll feel complete”
  4. “If I get that raise or become famous, I’ll fell complete”
  5. “If I get that movie or TV part, I’ll feel complete”
  6. “If I get so many likes on my Facebook post/status, I’ll feel complete”
  7. “If I get married and have 1-3 kids, I’ll feel complete”
  8. ETC. 

But THEN what happens, folks? What happens when the thing happens? They’re STILL not “complete”. There’s a big gap of RESTLESSNESS in their lives and that gap can ONLY be filled/fulfilled by Jesus Christ Almighty! It sounds cliché but it’s true! 

Selfies and worship of self are not just about “vanity”, “pride” and “fitting in”. They’re about “popularity”. They’re about finding fulfillment IN people/social status, rather than in Jesus Christ. Just like Social Justices causes are about finding fulfillment in everything BUT Jesus Christ. 

The next time you or a loved one goes to take a “selfie” or do a Youtube video or post your “vacation pics” on Facebook, ask yourself the following three questions:

1). WHY am I doing this? What is my PRIME motivation?

2). AM I doing this to be “popular”, “seem cool”, or to “get attention?” 

3). Does what I’m doing bring glory to Jesus Christ at all? If not, then why am I still doing it?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men SHALL BE LOVERS OF THEIR OWN SELVES, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are goodTraitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of GodHaving a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” – [2 Timothy 3: 1-5]

Jesus or “Breadcrumbs?”

I’ve most recently read a most PROFOUND book on “idols”. In the book, it talks about how idols are NOT JUST “statues” and “figurines”…..they can be SO MUCH MORE! 

Think back to the time of the Old Testament when there were a set of twins by the names of Jacob & Esau. Esau was the oldest of the two and back in those days (ancient, biblical times), the oldest son got most (if not all) of the father’s property when the father died, ALONG with what’s known as *the patriarchal blessing*.

It was custom back in those days that when a father died, the oldest son would “inherit” the most (if not all). This was known as his “birthright”. But RIGHT BEFORE the father died, it was custom for the father to BESTOW (that means, to give) his “personal blessing” upon the oldest son. While any consequent younger son could ALSO get some sort of “blessing”, it was always typically MUCH LESSER in degree, in comparison with what type of “patriarchal blessing” the OLDEST son would get. 

Esau was a hunter of the fields, while Jacob was more of a “homely” sheep-herder that preferred to stay at home in the camp. One day, while Esau was out hunting, Jacob cooked up some soup. And when Esau came home from his daily hunt, the SMELL of that soup must’ve been (in Esau’s nostrils, atleast) “heavenly”. He asked Jacob for some of that soup. But Jacob was clever. He said if Esau SOLD HIM HIS BIRTHRIGHT, he, Jacob, would then give him some of the soup.

Esau obliged (in other words, Esau agreed to it). And later on in the biblical narrative, we see how that plays out and how Esau is ALSO “tricked” out of his patriarchal blessing as well (or could it have been God’s wrath upon Esau for being so “careless” over his “birthright”, to begin with?) 

But the point I’m trying to make is THIS: WHEN Esau SOLD HIS BIRTHRIGHT for a “measly bowl of soup”, he, in effect, was likened unto one who SOLD HIS SOUL for a “measly portion”. That’s all idols are, really. A “measly portion”. Breadcrumbs! They SEEM enticing and thrilling at first glance. But on the inside, they are hallow shells; SPIRITUALLY EMPTY.

And the more of these “empty idols” we have, the more we “need” in order to try to sustain ourselves. We’re like birds, chasing after, picking up and eating one “breadcrumb idol” after another. They can’t talk, move, see or hear. So what ABOUT them seems SO appealing to us? The following book attempts to answer those questions for us IN DETAIL:

NO OTHER GODS BOOK

Therefore, what was Esau’s “idol” in that case? It was FOOD!

“And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?Genesis 25:32

Genesis 25:33 goes on to say that Jacob demanded that Esau SELL his “birthright” to him. SELL IT. Think about what that MEANS, folks! And the end of the passage says that Esau DID sell it. 

“And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob” – Genesis 25:33

I guess it’s really no wonder then when we read in Romans 9:13 in the NEW TESTAMENT: “As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated“.

Now…….if people reading the New Testament read that Romans 9:13 passage, WITHOUT ever even HAVING read the Old Testament, that can, at first glance, seem like a statement of “pure hatred”. But what that passage is REALLY saying (in context) is that Jesus loved the HEART of Jacob (which was set on “spiritual things”) but despised the HEART of Esau (who was stuck on “worldly/fleshly things” – like food).

Another good biblical dichotomy (in other words, comparison) is the difference between Ishmael & Isaac. God promised Abraham and Sarah a child in their old age. They waited some time and nothing happened. So they got a little “antsy” (or atleast Sarah did, anyways). Sarah decided she didn’t want to wait anymore and told Abraham to marry her slave girl, Hagar, so that Sarah might have a child THROUGH her. Abraham obeyed. Hagar had a child and his name was *Ishmael*. 

However, when Ishmael was in his early teens, Sarah DID conceive and have a child, whose name was Isaac. The book up above I read suggested that Abraham likely thought (at first, anyways) that Ishmael was the “promised heir” [because remember how, in ancient biblical times, special blessings always went to the oldest son?] but instead, it was, according to the bible, Isaac.

However, there’s also one DISTINCTION, here. Ishmael was born from a “concubine”/”slave woman” while Isaac was born of a WIFE! That makes all the difference in the world, here and is also why God’s covenant was with ISAAC, instead of Ishmael.

Now…..are there any OTHER cases in the bible where the YOUNGEST/YOUNGER son ended up getting a BIGGER “patriarchal blessing” than the OLDEST? Yes. We find that in Genesis 48:17-20…..In THIS passage, Jacob is VERY OLD in age, with all his sons (and 2 grandsons by his son Joseph) standing around him. 

Now remember, back in those days, it was typical for the oldest son to get a MUCH BIGGER blessing than any of the younger son(s). Manasseh was Joseph’s oldest son, while Ephraim was his youngest son. Joseph wanted his father Jacob to put his patriarchal blessing on his OLDEST son, Manasseh and placed his hands accordingly. But instead, Jacob did just the OPPOSITE……….He crossed his hands and blessed the YOUNGER SON, EPHRAIM, instead. 

Manasseh’s name means “causing to forget” while Ephraim’s name means “fruitful” or “causing to be fruitful”. So perhaps that has something to do with WHY the younger son was blessed over the older one. 

I’ve written ONE previous post on the subject of idols, from a slighly different angle: https://yeshua777.wordpress.com/2011/01/05/idols-in-modern-day-society/

And ya know, it’s funny. I’ve always known and REALIZED that idols don’t necessarily have to be statues or figurines. But until I saw the FULL list of what they could be (even people and “relationships”), I was never really able to put it into full scope. Therefore, that book was an EYE-OPENING book for me and I’d HIGHLY recommend it. It also comes with a BIBLE STUDY GUIDE as well. 

But in closing, I’d just like to ask: What type of idols do you have in your life? Are/were you even aware that you had them? And do you realize that idols are like “breadcrumbs”….promising spiritual nourishment but NEVER fulfilling it? And are you willing to learn to relinquish “breadcrumb idols” for the sake of a closer and COMPLETE spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ?

If you answered yes to the last question, I’d HIGHLY recommend the “No Other Gods” paperback book (easier for highlighting important passages), along with the “No Other God Bible Study Guide”. And remember: strive for Jesus, NOT “BREADCRUMBS”.

NO OTHER GODS BIBLE STUDY

 

Islam: The Silent Takeover of America (And the World):

It all started out so small. Right after 9/11, all Muslims here in the U.S. were immediately “demonized” for being Muslim and didn’t feel “welcome” in this country. But even WAY BEFORE 9/11, the “Silent” Muslim Infiltration of America had been happening ALL ALONG, since about 1960 or so, it’s just that most Americans never realized it. 

Think of the famous boxer Muhammad Ali, for instance. Most Americans never even thought about what the name truly implied (that he was Muslim). Just like most Americans have never thought (long-term) about just what Muslims here in America & in the Western world (long-term) REALLY MEANS……

[For example……whenever they build a “mosque” or “Islamic center”, they do it as a sign of “conquer/conquering”. Surah 18:21 of the Qu’ran more or less states: “let us surely build a place of worship over them”].  

But anyways……not long after 9/11, maybe like, 6 months later or so, there began this LIBERAL movement called “lets-pity-the-Muslims-in-this-country-instead-of-truly vetting-them. Nevermind-they-come-from-a-religion-that-wants-to-blow-people (and/or themselves)-up-and-behead-people”. In other words, there came to be this “Great Divide” between Americans who DIDN’T trust any Muslims after 9/11, and those that WANTED to “try to understand Muslims” after 9/11. 

But anyways…..if there were ever any doubt in one’s mind about the “SILENT INFILTRATION OF ISLAM HERE IN AMERICA & BEYOND“, look no further than the following 100 headlines, as they give a good indication into what the LONG-TERM PLAN/GOAL of Muslims here in America (and in the world) is (as a WHOLE):

100). PLUS MANY MORE “TERROR-ATTACKS” ON U.S. SOIL:

http://www.dailywire.com/news/11410/complete-list-radical-islamic-terror-attacks-us-james-barrett#

But folks: Rather you’re an “ex-Muslim” that’s ALREADY gotten out of Islam/The Muslim religion or you’re a Christian/Jew that KNOWS Islam is NOT biblical, we need to PRAY for ALL MUSLIMS (even the “jihadi ones”, I dare say)…….Because there’s not ONE single soul on the face on this planet that DOESN’T need Eternal Salvation in Jesus Christ’s name, right? 

We need to DILIGENTLY PRAY that the Lord Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL “Jewish” Jesus Christ) will soon open up their hearts, souls and minds to HIS true gospel and not the FALSE “Paganized Christian” gospel that was falsely taught to them since they were children/babies!

Because remember that you yourselves (BEFORE you got truly “spiritually saved” in the name of Jesus Christ) were once an “uninformed” and “unsaved/restless/perishing” soul, correct? What if no-one had ever taken the time, prayers or efforts to enlighten YOU, in the name of Jesus Christ? How would YOU feel?

Plus we also got to remember that ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE IN THE LORD’S HEAVENLY NAME! There is NOTHING outside his power! NOTHING! 😉 He can take the most vile, hateful “persecutor of Christians” (Saul) and then turn them into a WITNESS for his great, heavenly name (renamed Paul!) Remember? 

On the other hand…….if YOU (a believer in Jesus Christ Almighty), are EVER in a situation where a Muslim or group of Muslims (or ANY group for that matter) tries to get you to DENY CHRIST (for ANY reason), DO NOT DENY JESUS CHRIST! STAND YOUR GROUND! BE PREPARED TO DIE AND/OR BE TORCHURED FOR YOUR FAITH, IF YOU HAVE TO! SHOW OR FEEL NO FEAR! FOR THERE *IS* NO FEAR FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRULY IN CHRIST JESUS! (Think Daniel in the Lions Den in the Old Testament and Daniel’s 3 Friends in the Hot, Fiery Furnace – also in the Old Testament). And remember: “Those who stand for nothing fall for anything”. 

“Ghosts” or DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

We as a society are seemingly OBSESSED with “ghosts” and the “paranormal”….

In fact, here’s a most recent 2017 news story illustrating this fact:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/ghosts-haunt-palace-says-swedish-queen-155413476.html

From TV shows like “Supernatural” to “Ghost Adventures” to movies like “Ghostbusters”, “The 6th Sense”, “The Conjuring”, and to “psychic readings”, “tarot cards”, “ouija boards” and “seances”, people seem to be obsessed with the idea of ghosts/communicating with the dead (which the bible calls AN ABOMINATION, by the way!)

But just what DRIVES us, AS a society, (and maybe even as a WORLD) to be seemingly OBSESSED with such things? And biblically speaking, is it possible that “ghosts” are actually DEMONS IN DISGUISE?

Let us turn to the bible for the answer:

2 Corinthians 11:14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light

Ephesians 6:11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil

1 Samuel 28:13-15The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do.”

Note: Saul started off GOOD, with a true, HUMBLED heart for the Lord! But…..over time, God’s “favor” began to go to Saul’s head a little bit and he became “distant” and “arrogantly self-assured”, thinking that he didn’t NEED God anymore! And in ALOT of ways, our current U.S. and global society is now currently PERSONIFIED in Saul’s “fall from grace”, where, as a VERY last result, he saught out a MEDIUM (something that the bible CLEARLY PROHIBITS) to try to consort with the SO-CALLED dead spirit of “Samuel”.

We — as a nation — USED to be likened onto a “King David”, who was a man after God’s own heart. But NOW — as a world and as a nation — we have become like a rapidly spiritually deteriorating KING SAUL — who have fallen from grace and who has become a victim of DECEIVING SPIRITS, WHO ARE MASQUERADING AS ANGELS OF LIGHT!

And just WHAT does the bible, if anything, actually SAY about “ghosts/spirits”, in general? Well, we know from the following passage that when a person “dies”, they DO NOT come back (save ofcourse for Jesus Christ Almighty, who ROSE FROM THE DEAD, and also a couple instances in the bible where Jesus actually RAISED somebody from the dead — ie Lazarus, etc.):

“In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” – Genesis 3:19

In fact, according to http://biblereasons.com/ghosts/, 22 bible passages that PROVE that “ghosts” ARE “demonic spirits” is the following:

[[[‘You can’t talk to the dead. The dead can’t come back from the dead. Once a person dies, they either go to Heaven or Hell. You don’t have an option to be a ghost and haunt someone’s house and I will show you from Scripture’.

1. Job 7:9-10 “As a cloud fades away and vanishes, so the one who goes down to Sheol will never rise again. He will never return to his house; his hometown will no longer remember him”

2. 2 Corinthians 5:8-9 says: “We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him”

3. Hebrews 9:27 states: “And just as it is destined that men die only once, and after that comes judgment”

4. Matthew 25:46 proclaims: “These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life”

5. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says: “then man’s dust will go back to the earth, returning to what it was, and the spirit will return to the God who gave it”

We always hear about those stories that have to do with hauntings. People come back for revenge to claim their house, but what does Scripture say?

6. Psalm 146:4 states: “For his spirit goes out and he returns to his earth and in that day all his thoughts are destroyed”

7. Ecclesiastes 9:5-6 says: “For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even their name is forgotten.  Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun”

Another name for Satan is the deceiver.

He seeks to deceive as many people as he can and of course demons do the same thing. You may hear about people going to phychics and talking to dead family member, but once again those are just demons impersonating the deceased and deceiving people.

All the different ghostly activities, ghost stories, haunted mansions, etc. are all the work of demons. Watch out for people like ghost hunters who try to profit off of this.

8. 2 Corinthians 2:11 “I have done this so that we may not be taken advantage of by Satan. For we are not ignorant of his schemes”

9. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15 “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will correspond to their actions”

10. John 10:10 A “thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance”

11. Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil”

There are some people that might say didn’t Saul talk to Samuel’s ghost?

Notice that the figure did not come from Heaven. It came from out of the earth. Notice that the figure was not joyful and notice that Saul’s face was down. Scripture teaches that the dead can’t come back.

12. 1 Samuel 28:13-15 ‘The king said to her, “Do not be afraid; but what do you see?” And the woman said to Saul, “I see a divine being coming up out of the earth.” He said to her, “What is his form?” And she said, “An old man is coming up, and he is wrapped with a robe.” And Saul knew that it was Samuel, and he bowed with his face to the ground and did homage. Then Samuel said to Saul, “Why have you disturbed me by bringing me up?” And Saul answered, “I am greatly distressed; for the Philistines are waging war against me, and God has departed from me and no longer answers me, either through prophets or by dreams; therefore I have called you, that you may make known to me what I should do”

There are evil spirits/fallen angels in this world.

13. Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him”

14. Matthew 10:1 “And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction”

You don’t have to be afraid because they can’t harm Christians as we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us. Believers are protected.

15. 1 John 4:4 “You are from God, little children, and you have conquered them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world”

16. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 “And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee

17. 1 John 5:18 “We know that everyone who has been born of God does not sin, but the One who is born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him”

But that does not mean we are free to indulge in demonic activity such as black magic. We are not to seek evil. It is a sin and it will harm you. 

18. James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”

19. Ephesians 4:27 “and do not give the devil an opportunity”

20. Leviticus 19:31 “Do not turn to mediums or consult spiritists, or you will be defiled by them; I am Yahweh your God”

21. Deuteronomy 18:10-11 “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer”

Jesus did not believe in ghosts.

22. Luke 24:37-39 “They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have”]]]

The truth is, Satan knows just about everything about us. And because HE knows almost every single about us, SO DO HIS DEMONS! Therefore, the demons KNOW all about our hobbies and family members and dead family members, etc. I’ve even seen a Lifetime movie back in the day where a young mother had a 3-year old? son that died. And a “demon” was appearing to the woman IN THE FORM OF the child’s “ghost”, telling her to do things like: “kill yourself mommy, so we can be together”. DEMONS *PRETENDING TO BE GHOSTS* ARE VERY, VERY EVIL, YOU SEE? I can’t think of the name of that movie. Maybe some of the readers of this blog have seen that movie and know which one I’m talking about….? 

But anyways, the next time you “think” you hear or see a “ghost”, BEWARE! Demons are EVERYWHERE these days! It’s not even POSSIBLE, biblically speaking, for a person’s “soul” after they die, to be trapped/caught between heaven and hell. The bible says so! And ONLY praying in the name of Jesus Christ (the BIBLICAL Jesus Christ, not the fake Paganized one taught in watered=down churches today) can DELIVER a person from them! (Ofcourse, there is the HOLY SPIRIT/Spirit of God, as well as “righteous angels” but those are TOTALLYD DIFFERENT from the “ghosts” that people “think” they talk to!)

Demons are EVEN in today’s popular music, movies and TV shows! This isn’t a joke! Don’t believe me? Watch the following clip and then try to TELL me demons aren’t real (bet you can’t):

Dealing With Frustration/Fear/Discouragement

Frustration. Fear. Anger. Discouragement. It’s something we’ve ALL felt in our lives, from time to time. And looking through the pages of Holy Writ (Old AND New Testaments but ESPECIALLY the Old Testament), one might come to falsely believe that the Old Testament kings/prophets never had their fair share of anger/fear/frustration/disappointment. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth! 

King David was known (at times) to be in GREAT DESPAIR (over his sins!) This is evidenced in Psalm 69:

Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my GodThey that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away” (Psalm 69: 1-4)

And then there was also Jeremiah (also known as “The Weeping Prophet”):

“For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed” (Lamentations 1:16)

Behold, O Lord; for I am in distress: my bowels are troubled; mine heart is turned within me; for I have grievously rebelled: abroad the sword bereaveth, at home there is as death. They have heard that I sigh: there is none to comfort me: all mine enemies have heard of my trouble; they are glad that thou hast done it: thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called, and they shall be like unto me” (Lamentations 1:20-21)

And let us also not forget Elijah, who FLED FOR HIS LIFE!

And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time

And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers” (1 Kings 19: 1-4)

Therefore, David DESPAIRED, Jeremiah WEEPED and Elijah FEARED! They were all HUMAN, just like you and me! And truth be told, NONE of the Lord’s Old/New Testament prophets and/or Old Testament kings were perfect, for even THEY made mistakes! They FEARED, they WEEPED, they felt HIGHLY DISCOURAGED at times, like I said! However, nearly ALL of them (with the exception of King Saul & a few others) repented and came back to the Lord! This is evidence of how the Lord “restored” each of them:

David: Psalm 71 and 72 seem to answer Psalms 69 and 70

Jeremiah: Jeremiah 15: 19-21 was God’s response TO Jeremiah, concerning Jeremiah’s “discouragement”

Elijah: 1 Kings 19: 9-18 is the Lord’s “response” TO Elijah’s “fear”/”discouragement”

But if that STILL don’t help you, then let me tell you of my OWN experiences with fear/anger/discouragement:

1). I’m the only Messianic Jewish-Christian in my family and they all think I’m “crazy” for believing in Jesus Christ and “the bible”, etc.

2). I’m one of the only “open believers” at my workplace (a place where many like to “mock Christ” and “mock the bible”, because they think it’s so much FUN/ENTERTAINING/EMPOWERING to do so!)

3). While all of my old High-School and college friends are now pretty much all married with kids, there’s a very good chance that marriage & kids is not in the cards for ME, as far as THE LORD’S WILL seems to go (thus, making ME feel like a sort’ve “modern-day Jeremiah”)

4). Just like Jeremiah in the OT times, it seems the more I try to preach the gospel of Christ, the more people DON’T listen to me, which is HIGHLY DISCOURAGING, to say the least!

5). People in my family, my workplace/etc. make ME feel like the “bad guy” for not believing in “gay marriage”, “abortion”, “gay rights”, etc.

6). I have a couple of “Christian” friends who find absolutely nothing wrong with abortion, gay marriage and Catholic Church “theology” and of whom seem to think I’m such an “awful person” for trying to say that women shouldn’t have abortions for any reason, and that gay marriage and the Catholic Church are NOT of God!

7). I more or less feel like I’m being forced to celebrate “Dec25th” against my will (just to keep the peace in the family), even though I know in my heart and soul what a GODLESS, DISGUSTING holiday December 25th is! My “Christian” friends think I’m the Devil for even doing so much as “suggesting” that “Dec25th” has MAJOR PAGAN ORIGINS and has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH CHRIST! But in fact, THE WORLD makes me feel like such a “you-know-what” for NOT wanting to celebrate it!

But what is the crime, there? Just because EVERYONE does something doesn’t make it “right”, biblically-speaking! If the world worshiped Baal, would THAT make it “right”, biblically speaking? Anyways, I hate myself for being complacent on this one and for not putting my foot down. Not to mention I’m also probably being a a bit “hypocritical” here as well, as in previous posts, I stated that Christians celebrating “Dec.25th”, KNOWING its true connotations were in possible danger of judgement. 

8). Related to #3 above, any time I even “try” to date someone who’s even “remotely” Christian, it NEVER WORKS OUT. EVER. And when I inquired to the Lord about it, the Lord’s response more or less seemed to be: I don’t call EVERYONE to date/get married, ya know? (Hinting that my heavenly “calling” IS to be likened unto a “modern-day Jeremiah”?)

9). A couple of sins I struggle with (hoarding and/or food addiction) are SO HARD to overcome. I go through periods of time where I can “seem” to overcome it for awhile. But then…..I oftentimes seem to subtly go right back to it (nevermind the fact that I’ve tried to pray and cry out to the Lord about it LOTS of times……maybe I just need more faith?)

10). I try to find time each and every single day to “spend time with the Lord” and/or to “read his written word”. But it seems like every single time I try to open up the bible, I get sleepy…….really, really sleepy……or I become SO afraid of accidentally getting a WRONG interpretation from the bible that I’m almost too afraid to read it, sometimes (I know how ridiculous that must sound to some!) 

11). No matter HOW HARD I try to keep my patience at ALL times and in ALL situations, there’s things in my family and ESPECIALLY at my workplace that test my patience TO THE HILT! Working with the general “public” on any given day’s gonna come with customer “complaints”, naturally. And oftentimes, it’s complaints that either I can’t do anything about (as I don’t make the rules there) OR that I consider not even “complainable”.  

For example, if I try to bag a customer’s food in a special way where the hot stuff isn’t touching the cold stuff or if I want to wrap up some small tubs of sauces in a small bag WITHIN the plastic bag so the sauce doesn’t move around in the plastic sack and spill everywhere, it seems like 8 times out of 10, the customer will either COMPLAIN or give me this STRANGE LOOK like “ugh, you’re being WAY TOO nice to me, you’re WAY over-doing it, ugh!” And it REALLY tests my patience, sometimes! Here I am, trying to provide EXEMPLARY customer service TO the customer, and yet, there they are, complaining about EVERY. SINGLE. LITTLE. THING! It’s NUTS! In fact, this is often what I have to deal with on a daily basis!

I kid you not. I’ve had days where ONE customer complained about 5 or more small little things, one right after another, boom, boom, boom! And then, they’d have the gall to complain to ME if MY face looked even just a “little” minorly frustrated at the end of their “spiel”. Or I’ll have customers that won’t complain but they’ll wait until I have everything all bagged up for them, with a long line behind them and then, they’ll ADD things to their “order”. AGGRAVATING! But I have to try to remember to have the PATIENCE OF CHRIST! That’s not always easy in my line of work, folks! In fact, I’ve even had customers complain that I’m TOO nice at times. Well, in MY opinion, being “too nice” is FAR much better than being “rude”, am I right?

What IS it about human nature, that the MORE someone gives to us, the LESS AND LESS we appreciate it? Now I sort’ve know how Jesus Christ must’ve felt on the cross. And even before and after. During the times of the ancient Israelites, The Lord did A TON of stuff for the Israelites: He brought them out of Egypt, he parted the Red Sea for them, he gave them manna to eat from heaven, he miraculously brought forth water from rocks/desert, he oftentimes helped them defeat their enemies and blessed their crops, etc. etc. But it seemed like no matter HOW MUCH he did for ancient Israel, the Israelites STILL turned on Him and were UNGRATEFUL to Him! In fact, it seemed that THE MORE He DID for ancient Israel, the more and MORE they hated Him and turned on Him! HOW SAD! 😦

Honestly, there’ve been days at work when I’ve felt like: “Ok, if the customers want to complain, LET THEM, I’m sick and tired of trying to provide them exemplary service if they’re just going to walk all over me like that!” But ya want to know what the Lord taught me on those days?Treat ALL customers the way the RUDE customers treat YOU, guess what? YOU are then NO BETTER THAN THEY ARE!” Ouch! A hard lesson learned, but learned, nonethess!

Oftentimes, WHEN we are feeling discouraged, it’s because we’re spiritually lacking in something! Do we lack faith? Obedience? Patience? What IS it that we lack, first of all? And secondly, how do we overcome whatever’s LACKING? Answer: Through the Almighty Power & Glory of our Lord, Yeshua Hama’shiach (Jesus Christ Almighty!) His ways are NOT our ways and His divine understanding is NOT our human understanding! Our human nature is to want to get even with those who discourage us! But it’s Jesus’s nature to HUMBLE US!

lt’s not all bunnies and rainbows, folks! There’s going to be times in our lives when we feel MAJORLY DISCOURAGED and feel like throwing in the towel! But we MUST remember:

“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” [Matthew 24:13]

The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all” [Psalms 34: 17-19]

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness” [Isaiah 41:10]

“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” [John 16:33]

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved” [Psalms 55:22]

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” [Jeremiah 29:11]

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” [Matthew 11:28]

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not” [Galatians 6:9]

It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him” [Lamentations 3: 22-24]

And if that STILL doesn’t encourage you or provide hope, then think of it THIS WAY: Satan and his demons are THE ONES who are making you FEEL the way you do right now! And it’s their JOB to make you feel that way! HOWEVER, Revelation 20 and Matthew 25 state that they’ve ALREADY BEEN DEFEATED! They are nothing more than DEFEATED FOES:

“Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matthew 25:41]

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10]

So just remember THIS, folks……When Satan and his demons get you down, just remind Satan of his future! (Revelation 20:10)

So……in conclusion? ANGER NOT, FEAR NOT, BE DISCOURAGED NOT! Why? Because God/Jesus Christ is IN CONTROL! And may you and I never, EVER forget that folks, for the rest of our existence! Amen! 😉
