During the Exodus, one of the more unusual confrontations between the Hebrews faithful to Yahweh and those who preferred a more tolerant view of the pagan religions they encountered occurred in the plains of Moab, the fertile area northeast of the Dead Sea, across the Jordan from Jericho.

While Israel lived in Shittim, the people began to whore with the daughters of Moab. These invited the people to the sacrifices of their gods, and the people ate and bowed down to their gods. So Israel yoked himself to Baal of Peor. And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel. And the Lord said to Moses, “Take all the chiefs of the people and hang them in the sun before the Lord, that the fierce anger of the Lord may turn away from Israel.” And Moses said to the judges of Israel, “Each of you kill those of his men who have yoked themselves to Baal of Peor.” 

And behold, one of the people of Israel came and brought a Midianite woman to his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the people of Israel, while they were weeping in the entrance of the tent of meeting. When Phinehas the son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose and left the congregation and took a spear in his hand and went after the man of Israel into the chamber and pierced both of them, the man of Israel and the woman through her belly. Thus the plague on the people of Israel was stopped. Nevertheless, those who died by the plague were twenty-four thousand. (Numbers 25:1–9)

This requires some unpacking. To our twenty-first-century minds, the reaction of Phinehas seems excessive. Today, many would call him out for his intolerance and accuse him of xenophobia, racism, or both. To atheists and skeptics, this story makes God out to be a monster since He obviously approved of Phinehas’ violent act. But that’s because most Americans today, especially those most likely to throw around that kind of epithet, view the world through a naturalistic bias. There is a lot here that’s only obvious if you understand what was happening in the spirit realm.

The first clue that there’s more to this story than is obvious at first read is the description of Phinehas’ killing stroke. Did you notice that he killed both the Israelite prince and the Midianite princess with one thrust of his spear? Without getting too graphic, there are only a couple of physical positions in which Phinehas could have speared them both with one jab.

There is other evidence in the text that suggests the sexual sin of Zimri and Cozbi, the young lovers who dared transgress “in the sight of all Israel.” The Hebrew word translated “belly,” qevah, means the lower abdomen and can refer to the womb or pubic region, emphasizing that Phinehas caught the young couple in the act. The word translated “chamber” in the ESV (other translations use “tent” or “pavilion”), qubbah, appears only here in the Old Testament. The passage is a little obscure, but the sense is that the couple were engaged in some rite to the Baal of Peor, possibly a fertility ritual. So, what do we know about this pagan deity?

The name Baal-Peor is actually a title, the “lord of Peor.” The location of Peor isn’t known exactly, but it must be near Mount Nebo, where Moses got his only look at the Holy Land. On a clear day, visitors to Nebo today can see the Dead Sea, Jericho, and the Mount of Olives, which is only about twenty-five miles away. Shittim, or Abel-Shittim, was the name given to the place of the Israelites’ camp in the plains of Moab, directly below the western slope of Mount Nebo. Shittim means “acacia,” the desert tree that provided the wood of the Ark of the Covenant. It’s a hardy plant, surviving where most other vegetation can’t because of its resistance to drought and tolerance for salt water.

A team led by Dr. Steven Collins of Trinity Southwest University has been digging since 2005 at a site in Jordan that overlooks the ancient plains of Moab. Dr. Collins is convinced that this site, called Tall el-Hammam, is the biblical Sodom. Based on its estimated population, it would have been the largest city in the Levant in the time of Abraham next to Hazor, near the Sea of Galilee.

The evidence suggests that it was destroyed around 1700 BC by an air blast similar to the 1908 Tunguska event in Siberia. Soil samples taken from the lower city revealed a high concentration of salts and sulphates in the ash layer from the city’s destruction, and the chemical composition of the salts and sulphates was “virtually identical to the chemical composition of Dead Sea water.” So, whatever exploded over the north end of the Dead Sea around the time of Abraham had enough force to drop brine over the lower part of the city. This was devastating—the lower city was built on a hill seventy-five feet above the Jordan valley!

Further investigation of the plain itself, the Kikkar, revealed that the salty water essentially poisoned the ground. It was at least six hundred years—about the time of Saul, David, and Solomon—before agriculture and civilization could resume. So, when the Israelites arrived on the plains of Moab, it was well named Abel-Shittim, the “meadow of acacias”—because virtually nothing would grow there besides salt-tolerant acacia for another 250 years.

Now, why is all of that relevant? Because the area east of the Dead Sea, and especially near the ruined city of ancient Sodom, was a place where it was believed that the dead intervened in the affairs of the living. In fact, two of the stops along the Exodus route refer to places where the veil between worlds was believed to be thin.

And the people of Israel set out and camped in Oboth. And they set out from Oboth and camped at Iye-abarim, in the wilderness that is opposite Moab, toward the sunrise. (Numbers 21:10–11)

The name of the first, Oboth, derives from ʾôb, which refers to necromancy, the practice of summoning and consulting with spirits of the dead. This is the Hebrew behind the English word “medium,” as in the woman consulted by Saul to summon the spirit of Samuel.

This is a controversial topic among Christians. Those of us who take the Bible seriously are inclined to believe that there’s no such thing as ghosts. But there is nothing in the biblical account to suggest that the spirit who delivered God’s message to Saul was anything but the ghost of Samuel—who, it’s important to note, was called an elohim as he emerged from the earth.

“Elohim” is not a proper name, and it doesn’t refer specifically to “gods.” It’s a designator of place, like “American” or “New Yorker.” Spirits live in the spirit realm, but not all spirits are equal. Some are archangels and others are demons, but all are spirits. In the same way, spirits are all elohim, even the spirits of dead humans, but there is only one capital-E Elohim.

Interestingly, this casts new light on the name of one of the giants who fell before the swords of David’s mighty men.

There was war again between the Philistines and Israel, and David went down together with his servants, and they fought against the Philistines. And David grew weary. And Ishbi-benob, one of the descendants of the giants, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of bronze, and who was armed with a new sword, thought to kill David. But Abishai the son of Zeruiah came to his aid and attacked the Philistine and killed him. (2 Samuel 21:15–17)

Contrary to the most common definitions of the name, the giant wasn’t Ishbi-benob, he was Ishbi ben Ob—“Ishbi, son of the medium”! And the “descendants of the giants” (yĕlîdê hā-rāphâ) were probably a Philistine warrior cult that venerated the “mighty men who were of old,” a practice that had persisted for at least 1,500 years by the time of David.

The Greeks and Romans shared a good deal of their religion. The names were different (with the notable exception of Apollo), but the gods were pretty much the same. Zeus of the Greeks was Jupiter of the Romans. Likewise, Aphrodite was Venus, Ares was Mars, Hera was Juno, Hephaestus was Vulcan, and so on.
Similarly, the old god of the Romans, Saturn, was the equivalent of Kronos, king of the Titans. In both Roman and Greek religion, this was the old god who ruled the earth during a long-ago Golden Age, when humanity lived like gods, free from toil and care. Both were overthrown by their son, the storm-god, and confined to the netherworld. To the Greeks, this was Tartarus, a place as far below Hades as the earth is below heaven; in Roman myth, Saturn was chained by Jupiter to ensure that he didn’t overeat. It was believed that Saturn consumed the passing days, months, and years. It obviously would have been a problem if the old god had turned his voracious appetite to consuming the present and future as well.
The most famous of the Roman religious festivals, Saturnalia, was adapted from the Kronia celebrated in the Greek world. The Kronia is first recorded in Ionia, the central part of western Anatolia (modern Turkey) in the eighth century BC, roughly the time of Isaiah. From there, the celebration spread to Athens and the island of Rhodes, and ultimately westward to Rome, although the festival shifted from midsummer to the winter solstice. Both festivals were a time of merriment and abandoning social norms, with gambling, gift-giving, the suspension of normal business, and slaves being served by their masters.
The annual party notwithstanding, the god had a darker side. It’s well documented that both Saturn and Kronos were connected to human sacrifice. Classical sources report that condemned prisoners were sacrificed to Kronos at Rhodes, children were offered to the god at Crete, and, as Baal-Hammon, the god was offered sacrifices of Phoenician children well into the Christian era. Perhaps most horrifying of all is the description of the first-century philosopher Plutarch.
[Carthaginians] offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums took the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people.
Historians of the classical age made no distinction between Saturn, Kronos, and Baal-Hammon; to them, they were the same god worshiped under different names by Romans, Greeks, and Phoenicians. The parallel between child sacrifice and the myth of Saturn/Kronos devouring his own children to prevent their eventual rebellion is obvious. Diodorus Siculus, writing in the first century AD, drily noted that “the story passed down among the Greeks from ancient myth that Kronos did away with his own children appears to have been kept in mind among the Carthaginians through this observance.” Christian apologist Tertullian was less charitable:
Since Saturn did not spare his own children, of course he stuck to his habit of not sparing those of other people, whom indeed their own parents offered of themselves, being pleased to answer the call, and fondled the infants, lest they should weep when being sacrificed. And yet a parent’s murder of his child is far worse than simple homicide.
Indeed. In our modern, civilized world, we’ve mostly avoided the guilt associated with infanticide by convincing ourselves that an unborn child is simply a clump of cells that’s part of a pregnant woman’s body—heartbeat and unique DNA sequence notwithstanding.
We cannot lay the blame for the cult of Kronos, and the sacrifices offered later to his alter egos Saturn and Baal-Hammon, entirely on the Greeks. Careful reading of ancient texts reveals that this god is much older than the Greek civilization and originated farther east, in northern Mesopotamia. As at Saturnalia, the Kronia featured a reversal of normal social roles, most notably slaves served by their masters and eating with them at a common meal. It appears that this festival was very old by the time the Greeks established themselves as a world power.
A text discovered in 1983 at the site of the capital city of the Hittite kingdom, Hattuša, dated to about 1400 BC, the time of the Israelite conquest of Canaan, describes a myth in which the king of the gods, the storm-god Teshub (Baal/Zeus/Jupiter by a different name) has a ritual meal with the sun-goddess, Allani, and the “primeval gods” who’d been banished to the netherworld. Not only were the old gods at the table; they sat in the place of honor at Teshub’s right hand.
The celebration of the temporary suspension of the cosmic order surely accompanied the temporary suspension of the social order on earth. In other words, the myth with the “primeval gods” will have been associated with a ritual of reversal between masters and slaves. Now the Titans were also called “the old gods,” old and/or dumb people were insulted as Kronoi, and Attic comedy used expressions such as “older than Kronos” and “older than Kronos and the Titans.” Evidently, the antiquity of this divine generation had become proverbial at a relatively early stage of the tradition. The Titans thus can be legitimately compared to the Hurrian “primeval” gods.
It’s no coincidence that, like Kronos and Saturn, the Hurrian-Hittite god Kumarbi became king of the gods for a while by castrating his father, the sky-god, and was in turn deposed by his son, the storm-god, called Teshub by the Hurrians and Tarhunz by the Hittites. In other words, Kumarbi, who was worshiped in what is now Turkey and northern Syria, was an older incarnation of Kronos/Saturn/Baal-Hammon.
West drew attention to the conceptual similarity of the (Hittite) “former gods” (karuilies siunes) with the Titans, called Προτεροι Θεοι in Theogony 424, 486. Both groups were confined to the underworld (with the apparent exceptions of Atlas and Prometheus), and as Zeus banished the Titans thither, so Tešup [Teshub] banished the karuilies siunes, commonly twelve in number, like the Titans. They were in turn identified with the Mesopotamian Anunnaki. These were confined by Marduk to the underworld, or at least some of them were (half the six hundred, Enuma Elish vi 39–47, see 41–44), where they were ruled over variously by Dagan or Shamash.
The evidence for the earliest traces of this god point to a Mesopotamian origin, not Greek. Specifically, the trail leads to northwest Mesopotamia, in the area of the Mediterranean coast along the border between modern Syria and Turkey.
But this goes farther back than the Hittites and Hurrians of Joshua’s day. Scholar Amar Annus, who has done some absolutely brilliant work tracing the Watchers back from Hebrew texts to older Mesopotamian sources, came to an astonishing conclusion when he dug into the origin of the name of the former gods of the Greeks, the Titans. Annus notes first the existence of an ancient, and by the time of the Judges in Israel, almost mythical Amorite tribe called the Tidanu or Ditanu. They had a bad reputation in Mesopotamia—uncivilized, warlike, and dangerous. In fact, they were so threatening to the last Sumerian kings of Mesopotamia, the Third Dynasty of Ur, that around 2037 BC they began building a wall 175 miles long north of modern Baghdad specifically to keep the Tidanu away. We know this because the Sumerians literally named it bàd martu muriq tidnim, the “Amorite Wall Which Keeps the Tidnum at a Distance.”
Annus notes that the name “Ti/Di-ta/da-nu(m)—most possibly ‘large animal; aurochs; strong, wild bovide’—is the name of the eponymic tribe.” Then he points out that this tribe was linked to the Rephaim in ritual texts at Ugarit, the Amorite city-state destroyed around 1200 BC.
Greatly exalted be Keret
In the midst of the rpum (Rephaim) of the earth
In the gathering of the assembly of the Ditanu
So, the Ditanu/Tidanu were linked to the Rephaim in mind and ritual among the ancient Amorites, who, you remember, considered the Rephaim to be the divinized ancestors of their kings. What’s more, this assembly was summoned in what can only be described as a necromancy ritual for the coronation of Ugarit’s last king, Ammurapi III.
You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth,
You are invoked, O council of the Didanu!
Ulkn, the Raphi’, is summoned,
Trmn, the Raphi’, is summoned,
Sdn-w-rdn is summoned,
Ṯr ‘llmn is summoned,
the Rephaim of old are summoned!
You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth,
You are invoked, O council of the Didanu!
This council or assembly was more than just a group of honored forefathers, like the framers of the Constitution. One text from Ugarit makes reference to ritual offerings for the temple of Didanu, and temples owed sacrifices are typically devoted to gods. It appears, then, that between the birth of Abraham, around 1950 BC, and the time of the judges, circa 1200 BC, the Tidanu/Ditanu were transformed from a scary tribe of Amorites named for a giant wild bull into divine beings connected to the Rephaim, who likewise disappeared from the earth (in physical form) during that period.
And the Tidanu/Ditanu are probably the origin of the name of the bad old gods of the Greeks.
Then it may not be overbold to assume that the Greek Titanes originates from the name of the semi-mythical warrior-tribe (in Ugarit) tdn—mythically related to the Rpum in the Ugarit, and once actually tied together with Biblical Rephaim in II Samuel 5:18-22, where we have in some manuscripts Hebrew rp’m rendered into LXX as Titanes.
So, the veneration of this group of ancient entities extends at least as far back as the time of the judges, and probably much further. But why would the Greeks choose the name of an Amorite tribe for the old gods confined to Tartarus? Was that tribe literally descended from the old gods—the rebellious “sons of God” in Genesis 6? In other words, were the Tidanu/Ditanu literally Nephilim?
We’ll explore that next month.

Satan is the entity called Baal by the ancient Canaanites. Jesus confirmed that identity in Matthew 12:24 by linking Satan to Beelzebul (“Baal the prince”). In Canaanite religion, Baal was considered the lord of the Rephaim, the spirits of ancient warrior kings who were believed to have the power to intercede for the living.

The prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel, however, made it clear that Satan’s status as lord of the dead was a demotion:

You were in Eden, the garden of God;

every precious stone was your covering, 

sardius, topaz, and diamond, 

beryl, onyx, and jasper, 

sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; 

and crafted in gold were your settings 

and your engravings. 

On the day that you were created 

they were prepared. 

You were an anointed guardian cherub. 

I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; 

in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. 

You were blameless in your ways 

from the day you were created, 

till unrighteousness was found in you. 

In the abundance of your trade 

you were filled with violence in your midst, and you sinned; 

so I cast you as a profane thing from the mountain of God, 

and I destroyed you, O guardian cherub, 

from the midst of the stones of fire. (Ezekiel 28:13–16)

***

All of [the Rephaim] will answer 

and say to you: 

“You too have become as weak as we! 

You have become like us!”

Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, 

the sound of your harps; 

maggots are laid as a bed beneath you, 

and worms are your covers. (Isaiah 14:10–11, 15)

From the pinnacle of creation to a bed of maggots. A real comedown. Even the Rephaim, who are supposed to be Satan’s warriors, recognize his diminished status.

Lest you think we’re reading our preconceptions of Satan into Isaiah 14, let’s take this a bit further. Scholars have known for a long time that the prophet was a brilliant writer, and he was a master of wordplay. The influence of Egypt on the kingdom of Judah during Isaiah’s lifetime provided him with another opportunity to make his point.

All the kings of the nations lie in glory, each in his own tomb; but you are cast out, away from your grave, like a loathed branch, clothed with the slain, those pierced by the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, like a dead body trampled underfoot. (Isaiah 14:18–19)

At the risk of pointing out the obvious, the phrase “a loathed branch” in verse 18 is weird. And remember: weird = important. What in the world did Isaiah mean by that?

The Hebrew word netser is easy. It means “branch.” The adjectives translators chose to describe the branch includes “loathed,” “repulsive,” “rejected,” “worthless,” and “abominable,” but they convey the same sense—something utterly detestable. The Hebrew word rendered “abhorred” or “abominable,” taʿab, is significant. It modifies the noun netser, which would normally have a positive connotation. In this context, taʿab means something like “unclean” or “ritually impure.”

Still, even trying to allow for differences in cultures over the last twenty-seven hundred years, calling someone an “unclean or impure branch” is puzzling. But there is a likely explanation: Isaiah meant something other than “branch” because the Hebrew netser wasn’t the word he used at all.

[The] term is best explained as a loanword from the common Egyptian noun nṯr. Nṯr is generally translated “god,” but is commonly used of the divinized dead and their physical remains. It originally came into Hebrew as a noun referring to the putatively divinized corpse of a dead king, which is closely related to the Egyptian usage. (Emphasis added.)

The Egyptian word nṯr is especially relevant here. Isaiah connects the divinized dead god, Baal/Satan, with the dead kings venerated by the pagan Amorites and Canaanites, the Rephaim—the spirits of the Nephilim destroyed in the Flood.

This is not a weird, out-of-left-field stretch to force the Scriptures to fit a pet theory involving antediluvian giants. The prophet devoted several chapters, especially Isaiah 30 and 31, to condemning Israel for turning to Egypt instead of Yahweh for protection against Assyria. Sennacherib’s official mocked Hezekiah for “trusting in Egypt, that broken reed of a staff, which will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it.”

Recently, a seal of Hezekiah was found in Jerusalem at the foot of the southern wall of the Temple Mount. While this one, apparently from later in Hezekiah’s reign, featured an Assyrian-style winged solar disc, his older seals were decorated with a scarab beetle, which represented the Egyptian sun-god Ra. This was apparently part of Hezekiah’s foreign policy, an attempt to curry favor with his stronger neighbor, Egypt, to further his dream of reunifying Judah and Israel. This required standing up to the Assyrian juggernaut, which had destroyed the northern half of the kingdom of David and Solomon about six years after Hezekiah became king.

By using a loan word from Egypt that meant “dead god”—and not “branch,” as translated in our English Bibles—Isaiah was emphasizing the theme of chapter 14: The entity who rebelled in Eden, the storm-god Baal (whom Jesus identified as Satan), was cast down to the land of the dead to become the unclean, profane, abominable lord of the shades—the Rephaim.

This theme is echoed by Ezekiel in chapter 28. A deeper dive into the Hebrew of that text reveals a surprising parallel with Isaiah.

Your heart was proud because of your beauty; 

you corrupted your wisdom for the sake of your splendor. 

I cast you to the ground; 

I exposed you before kings, 

to feast their eyes on you. (Ezekiel 28:17) 

Reading this as another account of Lucifer’s fall to Sheol is a bit of a stretch, but only until we dig into the original Hebrew behind the English text. The word translated “kings,” mǝlākîm, uses the same consonant sounds, M-L-K, as mal’akh, or “messenger,” a word usually translated into English as “angel.” But in the Semitic languages spoken in the lands to the north and east of the ancient Israelites, similar words such as maliku and malku referred to underworld spirits who received kispum offerings and were possibly linked to the Rephaim.

Translators, both English and Hebrew, seeing the consonants mlkm would understandably assume that the word meant “kings.” Translators may not have been aware of the maliku spirits of ancient Ebla or Mari or why they were relevant to Ezekiel’s verse. But in the context of the cults of the ancestors and divinized dead kings who were an integral part of the pagan religions in and around ancient Israel, it seems more likely that Ezekiel was referring to malakim, the malevolent spirits of the dead Nephilim, just as Isaiah called the demoted rebel from Eden an “unclean dead god” and not a “loathed branch.”

This has interesting implications. It suggests that the fall of Satan, or at least his punishment, took place after the Flood, because the “shades,” the Rephaim (the spirits of the Nephilim), were already in Sheol when Satan landed there. That assumes, of course, that time in the spirit realm moves in a linear manner, the way it does for us. But that kind of speculation is way outside the scope of this article.

The bottom line is this: Satan’s ambition got the better of him. He was thrown out of Eden, cast down from the mountain of God, where he was greeted by the shades, the Rephaim—and not exactly with praise and thanksgiving (“You have become as weak as we!”).

However, while Satan was down, he wasn’t out. Although he’d been demoted from guardian of the throne of God to overseer of the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim, Satan took the form of the storm-god under names like Hadad (Baal), Zeus, Jupiter, and Thor, and set himself up as king of pagan pantheons from India to Rome to Scandinavia. And the Rephaim, called “warriors of Baal” in ancient Amorite ritual texts that have only been translated within the last fifty years, have been hard at work literally bedeviling humanity until Jesus returns.

Meanwhile, another nefarious group connected to the Rephaim has been confined to the abyss. But they’re not out of touch; they’ve been influencing humanity for millennia, and those Amorite texts show that the myths of Greece and Rome are integrally linked to the Bible. We’ll discuss that next month.

It is very controversial and we respectfully ask that when you read this understand that this ministry tries to provide thought engaging subjects that are simply for you to review and decide for yourself.

Part 6 of the “Covid Beast”

Testing the Spirits

  • The coming of the lawless one will be accompanied by the working of Satan, with every kind of power, sign, and false wonder. (2 Thessalonians 2:9)
  • And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and My maidservants, I will pour out of My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. ‘I will show wonders in Heaven above and signs in the earth beneath. (Acts 2:16-21)

There are so many game-changers coming, and unfortunately, the church is woefully behind in addressing these issues.  The biggest question I have is when the spirits come out of the Abyss, are we wholly prepared for all of the stories they will tell everyone about God?  Yet, the imagery of the “opening of the Abyss” lets us know that the “end times” will be characterized by an outpouring of spirits.  These spirits are going to come with messages and supernatural wonders to back them up.  The problem is, how are we going to tell which spirits are which?  Of course, we will still need the “helper” (the Holy Spirit) to seal our minds, foreheads, and hearts with His word.  

 

This seal by the H.S. will protect us from deception, but this does not mean we can neglect or ignore just how powerful the coming deception will be.  The Bible is not a crystal ball meant to be used to divine the future and its timing; using it this way only ensures more deception and escapism from the coming reality.  We should hope for the best, but very few are planning for the worst.  Consequently, if we are so dutifully bound to tell the gospel, how are we not also bound to start talking about what is coming.  Especially when what is coming even requires an update to the gospel.  “Do not take the Mark of the Beast.”

 

Consequently, we cannot keep dumbing down our congregations and protecting people from the truth of what the Bible says is coming.  Instead, we must amp up the volume on our ability to destroy Satan’s narrative.  Besides, someone is going to be here when all of this happens.  Unfortunately, no one will have much of a chance if we, who are supposed to be God’s elect, don’t start talking about what is coming before it happens.  

 

An Explosion of the Supernatural

Before taking on this next subject, I want to acknowledge that my intent is not to thwart the Holy Spirit in any way.  I also do not want to quench our desire for the Holy Spirit in our lives, and especially its fruit or gifts.  On the contrary, I believe an outpouring of the H.S. is coming and that many people will be saved.  However, considering the verses above, is it any wonder that signs and wonders churches are popping up all over the country?  

 

Understanding that Satan will also have signs and wonders that will follow him right into our churches might change our ideas about the coming’s deception.  Shockingly, it is the supernatural that may define Satan’s deception.  We are explicitly told in Matthew 24:24, Revelation 16:14, Revelation 13:13-14, and Revelation 19:20 that the Anti-Christ, demons, and other false prophets / Christ’s will use their supernatural powers to convince many that they are the truth.  

 

This supernatural explosion only comes as a surprise if we have forgotten that the pagan gods of the Old Testament were false gods with real demonic power. The power of these pagan gods was demonstrated in Exodus 7:11, 22, and 8:7, as well as other passages that are too numerous to count.  Even though mighty Moses came to deliver Israel with signs and wonders, the Pharoah was not even phased because his wise men and magicians “did the same with their secret arts.”  Yet, no matter how much we are told that the supernatural world has a dark side, there is a growing obsession in the church over miracles and magic shows.

 

Signs & Wonders

It is as if signs and wonders are the end all and be all of Christianity.  They are also creating a hierarchy among the churches and pastors.  In some instances, pastors have declared themselves to be on the level of the 12 Apostles.  Of course, I am not trying to say that we do not need modern apostles.  However, there were only 12 men who were hand-picked by Jesus.  

 

We also have a clear mandate not to write any more books of the Bible because there can be no new gospel.  What can seem to be unique is a return of ancient spirits that have been locked away for what they did in the Days of Noah. (1Peter 3:1-9) This unlocking is why we will see a return of the very same things that gave the church the victory over darkness the last time they faced off.  

  • But even if an angel from Heaven or we should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8)

So, while this pouring out of the H.S. may have begun, we need to be cautious with the coming counterfeit.  Just because there are signs and wonders does not mean that what is happening is of God.  Why do I say that?  Most of us know that the Bible tells us we do not need to be afraid of a prophet if his words do not come to pass.  After all, a false prophet could be killed if his prophecies didn’t happen.  (See Deuteronomy 18:20-22)  A much less known passage is about a different kind of prophet.

  • “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder that he tells you comes to pass, and if he says, ‘Let us go after other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the Lord your God is testing you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (Deuteronomy 13:1-4)

Relationship Theology

This verse is about a different kind of prophet that sends chills up my spine.  These false prophets will perform signs and wonders and rightly tell us of things that will come to pass.  Yahweh allows for these fakes because He is testing us to see if we know Him or not.  The idea of personally knowing God is the most important and all-encompassing paradigm of the Bible.  It also parallels what I have personally found to be the most challenging passage in the Bible.  Here is a quick review of Matthew 7:7-23.  

 

It begins by telling us that we are God’s children, and because of that, God knows how to give good gifts to those who ask, seek, and knock. Then Jesus also tells us how to give good gifts to others by living according to the “Golden Rule.”  But one of the narratives (verse 17) people miss is where Jesus talks about the false prophets and the wolves that stand in our way.  Then Jesus specifically tells us that the way to recognize these false prophets or wolves is by their fruit.  This part about false prophets is interesting because Jesus mentions gifts but then says it is the fruit that can help us sort out the wolves in the church.  Then Jesus says something that still makes me a bit week in the knees.  

  • Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in Heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’  Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:21-23)

My first reaction to this passage is, “wow, I have never done some of these things. If these guys were fooling themselves about getting into Heaven, then maybe I am fooling myself as well.”  Of course, this doubt subsides because the point that Jesus is trying to drive home is that He didn’t know these people. They didn’t have a relationship with Him. Jesus is also pointing out that the gifts of the Spirit operating inside the church were not what was the most important thing, but a relationship with Jesus was.  The people who did not know Jesus were surely known for their gifts. In fact, they were probably superstars in their church.  

 

 They did not have an intimate relationship with Jesus.  Therefore, they must have been the wolves Jesus just warned us about.   In other words, it looks like they were gifted people, but they also didn’t have the spiritual fruit stemming from a deep relationship with God.  This passage leads me to believe that our spiritual fruit more accurately reflects the depth of our relationship with Jesus than our gifts.  Gifts have more to say about the generous nature of God because God “gives them to all men liberally.” (James 5:1)  It could be that God gives a diversity of gifts to everyone no matter whether they love Him back or not.  This idea is certainly something that comes out within the parable of the talents as well.  

 

Nonetheless, it cannot be a coincidence that Jesus explicitly mentions three of the gifts of the Spirit (prophecy, deliverance, and miracles) that are found in 1 Corinthians 12:1-31.  Jesus then says that these people were operating in these gifts without actually having a relationship with Him.  Beyond scary!  But if gifts like this started happening to me, I would probably feel like I had achieved a special connection with God.  Yet, this does not appear to be the case.  All of this tells me that I have much to learn about just how down-to-earth our God is.

 

  • But understand this: In the last days, terrible times will come. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, without love of good, traitorous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. Turn away from such as these!  2 Timothy 3 BSB.

 

The Gifts & the Giver

It is hard to say precisely when Jesus gave these gifts to these people or if they were born with them. Indeed, some people are born with unique gifts but never give God credit.  What is shocking to me is that these people specifically gave Jesus credit for their gifts, but they still didn’t have a relationship with Jesus.  How is this possible?  Is this what Revelation 2:1-7 meant when it talks about a church that had lost its “first love?”  Did these people start out loving God with all their heart and then begin to love His gifts more than they loved the giver of the gifts?  

 

Is this also an issue of worship?  Did they begin to worship the gifts instead of God?  I don’t have all the answers, but we all need to ask ourselves some hard questions.  Most importantly, on the day we meet Jesus, the only thing that matters is that we know Him, and He knows us.  It is not going to be all about our gifts.  What we did with the lives God gave us certainly will come up, but it is our relationship with God that matters most.  This same equation is found in the Lord’s prayer when Jesus invites us to pray, “thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  

 

The question is, do we know Him well enough to know how to pray from Heaven’s perspective?  But if we know God, then we have the right to pray, ask and believe in miracles.  We also have to accept God’s answers and interpret them in light of the cross, which has already accomplished the victory.  Knowing that only God can be God will allow us to accept His answers and still keep praying earnestly for others.

 

We have to be like Abraham, the father of the faithful.  Faith was credited as righteousness because our faith reflects the depth of our relationship with God.  Faith, not miracles, is the currency of Heaven. (Romans 4:22) Still, there is no doubt that some people have extraordinary gifts.  While gifts proclaim God’s glory, we still have to prioritize our relationship with Him.  

 

Matthew 7,  just like Deuteronomy 13, clearly shows the difference between the supernatural gifts and a relationship with the giver of everything supernatural and everything good.  Christianity is not about gifts.  Of course, God is still going to keep on giving gifts out of His goodness.  More importantly, we are going to need His gifts to face what is coming.  But now is the time to recognize the difference between the gifts and our “first and forever love.”

 

Those Seeking Signs & Wonders

Unfortunately, most people aren’t searching for a relationship with God.  Then some want God to prove Himself to them, but He has already done that on the cross, and it changed all of history.  Of course, Job went after God with all kinds of questions to test God, and we all know where that got him.  The reality is that God has only given us an invitation to try Him in one area; the tithe. (Malachi 3:10).  Still, some are always searching for a sign, but are they open to a real relationship with God, or are they just looking for a miracle?  Sign seekers were prevalent even in Jesus’s day.

  • Even the scribes and Pharisees told Him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign, yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet. (Matthew 12:38-39)

Jesus is saying that He and He alone is the sign we have been searching for.  A relationship with Jesus is an everlasting gift.  There is no more pain or death where Jesus is leading us to.  There is only beauty beyond description and unfathomable love that awaits us there in Heaven. This heavenly culture is “Christ in us the hope of glory.” (Colossians 1:27)  So, why do we rejoice?  Do we rejoice because we have gifts?  Do we rejoice because the demons are subject to us or that miracles happen when we pray?  No.  We rejoice because our names are written in the heart of Jesus, and everything we have in this life is a gift that we have received.  We don’t own anything.  

  • Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice that your names are written in Heaven.” (Luke 10:20)
  • For who makes you so superior? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as though you did not? (1 Corinthians 4:7)

Wolves Among the Sheep

The gifts of the Spirit all seem to have a purpose here on earth.  My grandfather, who was a Pentecostal minister for more than 40 years, often told me that where the Pentecostal movement went wrong was when they were deciding whether the gifts of the Spirit were the churches or the individuals.  Like my grandfather, F.C. Kruse, I favor the church but agree that certain people tend to operate better in particular gifts.  However, in the final analysis, the gifts and workings of the Spirit are God’s property; they are just coming from different parts of the same body.  Consequently, we must not boast or come to love the gifts more than we love the giver of all that is good.  

 

As near as I can tell, the attitude of the “signs and wonders” churches appears to be that the greatest of those among us are the ones with the greatest gifts.  This idea was in sharp contrast to the words of Jesus when he said, “If anyone desires to be first, he will be last of all and servant of all.”  At this point, I think it becomes apparent precisely who is wrong?  Especially when we know that it is the fruit of the Spirit that allows us to sort out the wolves among the flock.  When it comes to “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control,” they are going to be left wanting. (Galatians 5:22-23)

 

However, there is a similarity between the “Fruit of the Spirit” and the description of love in the Bible.  Yet, love would never make people feel inferior just because they didn’t have a particular gift?  Especially when they may be just a different part of the same body.  Does the Bible say we are supposed to have all the same gifts?  In 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, Paul sarcastically asks the same question.  “Do we all have the same gift?”  While the Bible says to “eagerly desire the greater gifts,” we forget the last part found in verse 31, “Yet I will show you a more excellent way.”  

 

The amplified translation identifies this more excellent way as unselfish love, which is what happens when we use our gifts to help other people and not for our purposes.  In this sense, seeking the gifts of the Spirit versus seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus are two different things.  But how does this match the attitude of many of the super churches or super leaders?  My biggest turned off regarding the hyper-charismatic movement is their lack of humility, spiritual fruit, and diminishing emphasis on a deeper relationship with God.  

 

After all, there are a diversity of gifts, but only one Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:4)  So why divide the church over gifts when they were explicitly appointed to encourage and sanctify the church?  The gifts, if used correctly, should bring the church together under the one Spirit that rules us all.  Using the gifts to divide the church turns out to be one way to recognize the wolves have crept into our midst.  

 

Consequently, we must be aware that pretenders are going to enter the church even though they are operating in marvelous gifts, but “by their fruit, you shall know them.” (Matthew 7:16)  We will also know them by their love for their brothers and sisters. (John 13:35)  These two paradigms are how we can use the Bible to discern the spirits of those presenting themselves to the church as brothers and sisters in Christ.

  • For we were all baptized by one Spirit to form one body—whether Jews or Gentiles, slave or free, and we were all given the one Spirit to drink. 

Recognizing A False Prophet – Key Ideas of 2 Peter 2

False prophets and false teachers are coming to insert destructive heresies into the church.  These heresies will even include denying the sovereign Lord.  They will be deprived in their conduct and bring the truth into disrepute.  They will be greedy and exploit us with fabricated stories. 

They will blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals and creatures of instinct.  They will carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.  With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning; they seduce the unstable; they are experts in greed—an accursed brood! They have wandered off to follow the way of Balaam.

 

Their mouths are empty of truth but full of boastful words appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh.  They promise freedom while they are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.” They are again entangled in the world, and they are worse off than they were initially. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command. Of them, the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and “A pig that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”

 

Yet, their condemnation is coming, just like the Days of Noah and Sodom and Gomorrah.  But like righteous Lot, the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the flesh and despise authority. NIV

 

Also, consider 2 Corinthians 11:12-15.  I will keep on doing what I am doing to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us (apostles) in the things they boast about. Such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. NIV

 

The False Prophets Are Here

  • Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)
  • “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their desires, they will gather around them many teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

The opening of the Abyss is looming large.  An outpouring of the spirits is on its way.  So too, the church is about to face the most significant test it will ever face.  Now is not the time to lack discernment over the supernatural signs and wonders that follow.  Now is also not the time to start dumbing down the Bible or prophecy?  In a strange twist, the secular world is obsessed with the supernatural, while pastors avoid it in their sermons.  Now is also not the time to start blending the new age or any other religion into Christianity.  

 

Now is the time to differentiate the worship of God in “spirit and truth” from other false types of worship, such as eastern meditation that opens people up to demonic spirits. Now is not the time to start coining new terms or coming up with new translations to fit our world view.  While I hate to single anyone out, the new “Passion” translation seems to fit the bill.  Brian Simmons claims that he virtually downloaded this directly from Jesus when he was in Heaven.  Once there, he found a new chapter of the Bible, which was John 22.  

 

New gospels are troublesome.  When you say you are downloading the Bible, it means that this is not a translation.  Instead, he is saying, “these are the literal words of Jesus.”  Interestingly enough, Paul told us that even if an Apostle or an angel from Heaven gave us a new gospel, “let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8)  Accepting new books to the Bible is clearly heresy.  I could write a whole book about false prophets in the church, but I am only going to mention a couple of things because I think they are extremely dangerous.  

 

I recently listened to a Christian book called “The School of the Prophets,” which mentions that we should start talking to our own personal angels.  Unfortunately, I see no Biblical case for this. Furthermore, I don’t believe that we need any intercessors between God and us.  That is the function of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  Besides, how exactly do we think these spirits about to be released will present themselves to us, and what messages will they bring?  The Bible says Satan portrays himself as an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14)  In other words, demons are rogue angels.

 

If you don’t think these spirits are already contacting people as we speak, then watch “Beware of Angels” on amazon.  If you are interested in some of the ways the wolves have crept into the church and begun to present a false gospel, then watch “The Submergent Church,” which is also accessible on Amazon. 

 

Since I have brought up the idea of modern prophets, I want to be clear that I do not consider myself a prophet or a theologian, nor am I trying to predict anything.  In fact, for the record, I hope everything in all of my articles is wrong and that none of it happens.  What I have done is read God’s word and correlate it with “what’s happening” since Jerusalem is “no longer trodden down by the Gentiles.” For myself, it has been a faith-building experience.  Now more than ever, we need to cling to the Bible as our only trustworthy source of information in troubled times.  

 

The Forgotten Multitude?

  • “After this, I looked and saw a multitude too large to count, from every nation and tribe and people and tongue, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”  (Revelations 7:9-10)

There is one group of people that I have noticeably left out of these articles.  I am talking about those who have not been sealed in their foreheads either way.  These are the souls that have not made their choice, but soon they will be forced to go one way or the other.  

 

The “unknown multitude” are the people we need to reach with the gospel, as well as the warning not to take the MOB.  Some translations say, “an innumerable multitude.”  So, how can so many people get saved during the tribulation?  I thought the tribulation was all about the Jews?  Well, the tribulation is not about the Jews.  It is about the decedents of all 12 tribes of Israel. (Read Revelation 7:1-8) This passage is about the 12,000 saved from each of the 12 tribes, which then totals 144,000 Israelites.  

 

This verse proves that all the promises God made to Abraham and His children will be honored just like His promises.  But the following passage proves that God will also inherit all the nations.  (Psalms 82:8)  Whether these numbers for Israel are symbolic or not, it is difficult to imagine that an innumerable group of people from every tribe of the earth is not a lot of people.  How can these many people get saved during the worst time in human history?  

 

I believe it will come down to the “seal in our foreheads,” the preaching of Bible prophecy, and the return of supernatural signs and wonders of the Holy Spirit re-manifesting in the church like they did at Pentecost.  One way that we can reach these people is to start talking about what will happen ASAP.  God wants us to preach the gospel and the warning about the MOB to the ends of the earth so that more people can get saved. Lives still hang in the balance, and the church needs to heed its call and wake those who are sleeping.

 

The Lessor Know Gifts

When I think about the gifts presented in 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, I try and focus on the ones that will help us discern between these escaped spirits returning for revenge.  Of course, verse 3 defines what unites His church.  “No one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit.”  Verses 4 -6 talk about how there are “different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them.” Interestingly, these same verses equate our spiritual gifts to different kinds of service or workings.  

 

How might our dialog change if we talked more about how God has called us to serve and work in His kingdom instead of talking about how we are gifted?  After all, verse 7 makes it clear that these gifts of the Spirit are “given for the common good.”  It is verses 8 and 9 that bring out some of the lesser-known gifts.  Here are the three gifts with some translational variations.

  • A message of, a word of, an utterance of, or speaking with wisdom or giving wise advice.
  • The gift of faith. (which can move mountains)
  • A message of, a word of, an utterance of, or speaking with knowledge or giving correct information.

Indeed, I have never met anyone who maintained that these gifts have ever ceased from being part of the church.  Now more than ever, we need the gifts of knowledge, wisdom, and faith to discern the difference between the spirits that are coming.  More importantly, the Bible is our only source of the correct information, and we will need the Holy Spirit to help us wisely divide the word of truth. 

 

Most importantly, we will need faith to believe and trust in God and not give in to man, or his reasoning or his “causes.”  We will need faith to stand up and say no to the Devil and his mark.  We will need faith to spread hope to a dying world. While other men’s hearts will be failing them for fear, we will have a supernatural faith that says, “Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” (2 Timothy 4:8)

 

Loving the Fruit

While I enjoy the gifts that God has given to me, and I try to be open to more, the truth is that I am happier with more of the fruit of the Spirit.  There honestly isn’t one gift of the Spirit that I wouldn’t trade for one more piece of fruit.  That’s not to say that I am right, but that is how I feel sometimes.  Comparing fruit to gifts is much like comparing the gospel of Mary to Martha, and it is something we all need to think about.  Besides, I like to remind pastors that they will be out of a job when they get to Heaven.  

 

But of course, that is probably true for all of us.  Contemplating Heaven is the kind of sober discussion we need to discern the truth of fruit and gifts.  While I believe and support the gifts of the Spirit, I think we have to prioritize slightly here and focus on the fruit because, without them, our gifts aren’t believable.  After all, fruit is how we will recognize the fakes.  With that in mind, here are some of my favorite sayings about the fruit of the Spirit -Please remember, I am not trying to quench the gifts of the spirits- I am just trying to keep gifts in perspective:

  • It would appear most “gifts of the Spirit” aren’t necessary for Heaven.  But the fruit of the Spirit is something we can eat every day and for all eternity. 
  • Fruit is delicious, and it can feed us and keep us alive.  Gifts are fantastic, but they can’t nourish our souls through famine.  
  • There is a diversity of gifts, works, and service, which means (like Forest Gump’s chocolates) you never know what you’re going to get.  (1 Corinthians 12:4)
  • An issue of maturity.  What kind of child of God would put one of their brothers or sisters down just because they got a particular gift and their brother or sister didn’t?

The Great Pouring Out of His Spirit

On the other side of the coin, many have taught that the gifts of the Spirit have ceased.  Others have even looked down upon generations of Christians for losing the gifts.  Yet, one reason why we didn’t see the “gifts of the Spirit” as often could be because the H.S. had already put most of what we are fighting against in prison. Consequently, the return of these spirits could be why the gifts are coming back in full force.  

 

The Abyss will be opened soon, and we have no idea how many spirits will come out.  Fortunately, we need not be afraid because God will seal us in our foreheads so that these demonic entities cannot mess with us.  Not only that, God is going to pour out His Spirit in such abundance that the gifts are going to come back to the church like never before.  The reemergence of the gifts will happen because we need them to fight for the mind, hearts, and foreheads of the innumerable multitude that God wants to save.  

 

Soon, denominationalism won’t matter.  True churches and true believers will begin to experience prophesy, visions, dreams, wonders in Heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath. (Acts 2:16-21)  But to pull this off and be believable, we need fruit to keep our feet planted on the ground.  Furthermore, we must always keep the thoughts of our “first love” on our minds, hearts, and lips as the world is soon to be shaken. (Revelations 2:4) 

  • The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him – the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord, and he will delight in the fear of the Lord.  He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears. ( Isaiah 11:2-3)

Next Week

One purpose of prophecy is to warn us to start going about our Father’s business and prepare everyone for what is coming.  The unfolding events are signs of things to come as the whole world is about to be under the grasp of the beast.  So, please don’t miss our final article next week, as we summarize what all of this means and update everyone on the newest developments in the Covid deception.

The Right Hand of Faith

We have come so far in this series of articles, but we have one more mile to go to expose another deception that is coming.  One of the remaining traits of the “Mark of the Beast” that we have yet to discuss has to do with our right hands and our foreheads.  It seems intuitive that we should be marked on our right hand, but the whole idea of being marked on our forehead seems a bit intrusive.

 

Jack Wellman has a nice article that talks about “What Does the Right Hand Symbolize or Mean in The Bible?  This phrase, “the right hand,” occurs 166 times in the Bible.  What is interesting is that God wants to hold our right hand.  In Isaiah 41:13,  God says, “For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand… Fear not, I am the one who helps you.”  Remember, anything God desires is also something that Satan wants to emulate.  This walking hand in the right hand is reminiscent of walking along with God in the Garden of Eden because it implies a close relationship.

  • https://www.patheos.com/blogs/christiancrier/author/jwellman/

Being in someone’s right hand also implies both authority and protection.  “The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool” (see Luke 20:42-43, but also Luke 22:69)  What is good to note is that God can hold all of us in His right hand, signifying the special place that He holds for all of us in His heart.  But what God holds in love, Satan holds in hate and condemnation.  How fearful it must be to have Satan holding us in his hands and marked by his signet.

 

The Seat of Our Identity

Typically, no one wants to mark their face as this is the most invasive place I can imagine and impossible to hide.  When we are marked in the face, it could also be a way of saying that our appearance or even our identity has been changed.  Someone with a scared face may no longer be recognizable, and that may be some of what happens.  Taking the Mark of the Beast or MOB makes us unrecognizable as children of God. But when we let go of exactly what kind of mark this is, we can begin to imagine quite a few other possibilities.

 

The idea of something marking our foreheads is not that foreign in the Bible.  For example, in Revelation 17 there is a woman who has something written on her forehead.  “BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Later, in Revelation 13:6, the deceived children of this same harlot also receive a mark on their foreheads (Rev. 14:9).  One would have to think this is also the MOB.

 

Things being written in our foreheads could also be referring to the idea that in heaven our minds are an open book, and they can be read just like we read a book.  Nothing can be hidden, (Mark 4:22) so these marks in our forehead are also a sign of what is inside of our minds and our hearts.  Having Satan in complete control of either of these places could also easily correlate with the idea of a seared conscience.  (1 Timothy 4:2)

 

The Opening of the Abyss

These marks are not necessarily literal or visible in the physical realm, but they are giant flashing billboards in the spiritual world, and they cannot be missed.  For example, God’s children also have something written in their foreheads.  Think of Revelation 14:1 and how it speaks of the 144,000 who have both the name of the Lamb, and the Father written in their foreheads.

 

These kinds of passages let us know that when we are talking about a mark in our foreheads, we could be talking about symbolism, imagery, or just a physical description of spiritual things.  Now we are coming to what I believe may be one of the top two events in all of the “end times.”  The “opening of the Abyss.”  This opening of the Abyss, found in Revelation 9, is another of my favorite passages that talk about a mark, signet, or seal in our foreheads.

  • Then the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to earth, and it was given the key to the pit of the Abyss.  The star opened the pit of the Abyss, and smoke rose out of it like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the pit. And out of the smoke, locusts descended on the earth, and they were given power like that of the scorpions of the earth.  They were told not to harm the grass of the earth or any plant or tree, but only those who did not have the seal of God on their foreheads.

This passage is also significant because it represents the moment where the spirit of the Anti-Christ is released upon the world for the second time.  This spirit is the “king” over all the other spirits in the Abyss, but he is also called a (fallen) angel of the bottomless pit.  His name in the “Hebrew tongue is Abaddon but in the Greek tongue his name Apollyon.” (Revelation 9:11)  Now when we think of the Abyss, we have to remember that it’s an underground prison where disobedient spirits or fallen angels were imprisoned for what they did in the “Days of Noah.”

  • (Jesus) went and preached (proclaimed) to the spirits in prison, who disobeyed long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. (1 Peter 3:19-20)

Walking through this imagery, we have to remember that after His resurrection, Jesus went to witness to the spirits in the Abyss.  I believe He witnessed to them that He now holds all power in heaven, on earth, and of the underworld.  Since then, Jesus has been holding the key to the Abyss.  What might be shocking for most of us is that He is going to give it back to Satan one last time.  Satan is then going to open up the Abyss so that he can regain many of his captured troops.

 

But of all the spirits Satan hopes to retain, it is the spirit of the Anti-Christ that is the most important.  The fact that this spirit comes out of the Abyss means that he has been here before, and was punished for what he did the last time he was here.  This is also true of all the other spirits coming out of the Abyss.  This time they will have 1000’s of years of pent-up rage to unleash upon the world.  Reading all of Revelations 9 reveals that the beings coming out of the Abyss are also human-beast-hybrids.

 

Unfortunately, they are given great power, but they do not have free reign over the earth.  These creatures also lend credence to the genetic aspirations of Satan, as they are his true spawn.  These weird creatures cannot hurt some things on the earth such as the grass and the trees.  They also cannot kill, but they can torment.  Most importantly, before these spirits are released, an angel puts a seal in the forehead of all God’s children to stop the evil spirits from tormenting them.

 

This seal in the forehead could also be thought of as a mark or a signet, and it may not be visible to anyone except spiritual beings.  This seal may also be more than a mark because it may present an actual barrier that cannot be opened or crossed.  From my perspective, it cannot be a coincidence that in the end times both Satan and God seal all of their children with a mark or seal in their foreheads.  But it is the description of the opening of the Abyss that helps us understand how each mark or seal works.

 

Disembodied Spirits

All of this imagery is important because the things that are coming out of the Abyss are evil spirits or demons.  They may not have bodies, which means that they will be looking for a body to take over, inhabit or possess.  Again, if the main goal of God is to inhabit us with His Holy Spirit, then wouldn’t the main goal of a disembodied and disobedient angel be to possess our bodies?  This is what demonic possession is all about.

 

We also have to remember that being disembodied may not be very comfortable or satisfying.  After all, spirits only have few ways of interacting with the physical world.  The idea that spirits don’t have a body seems consistent with the Bible.  After all, Jesus says ghosts are real. (Luke 24:37)  But having bodies seems to be very important to spiritual beings.  Consequently, this release of ancient spirits is likely to produce the same effect that it did in the Days of Noah.

 

I have already mentioned how the opening of the Abyss represents the exact point that Satan demonically possesses the man who is Anti-Christ.  Therefore, we know that the MOB must be fully in play by this point.  This means the spirits coming out of the Abyss already have all their targets marked for torment.  As a side note, the identity of the Anti-Christ is revealed as a past king and an old one at that.  Paralleling that to Revelation 17:6-12 where it says, that the Anti-Christ will be one of seven kings, but will someone how also be the eighth king.  That would make this his second appearance here on earth.

 

This is why the same passage says about the Anti-Christ, “who was, and is not, and who will be.” It says it three times because it is that hard to believe.  This cycle of repeated possession makes sense when we understand why the Bible says the Anti-Christ will be able to heal from a mortal wound.  See Revelation 13:14 where it says,  “the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet had lived.”  Understanding that a disembodied spirit being released from prison only has certain powers is important, and it may be because they do not have bodies.

 

This is why the Anti-Christ needs a body to manifest himself to the world, and why the host of demons coming out of the Abyss will be looking to do the same. But does this idea of bodies being separated from spirits hold up?  As it turns out, the same Greek root word (Oikētērion) for the new body we get on resurrection day happens to be the same word for what the fallen angels lost in the heavenly war.  This same word can also refer to the body as a dwelling place for the spirit.  Specifically, 2 Corinthians 5:3 talks about the body that Christians are “earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house, which is from heaven.”

 

This is contrasted in Jude 1:6 by what the fallen angels seem to have lost in their war against heaven because they “left their own habitation/house.  (Consequently), he hath reserved (them) in everlasting chains under darkness.”  The fact that they have no body may be why they can only torment those without Godly seals in their foreheads. All of this makes me think that demonic possession may be one of the ways they can torment these people.  Most importantly, God’s seal prevents possession, while the other seal or mark of the beast may invite them to enter.

 

The fact that this gateway to entry by foreign spirits happens in our forehead certainly brings the idea of mind control to the forefront of what might be happening here.  This mark could also be like a spiritual signet, which signifies authority over our mind.  It could also be a seared conscience.  But what exactly is it about God’s seal or mark that keeps the demons out?  I believe it is the Holy Spirit that writes the Name of God Himself in our foreheads.  This is significant because we are told that the Abyss can only be opened when the restrainer is taken out of the way.

 

While there is much debate as to the identity of this restrainer, I believe the answer is two-fold.  Jesus holds the key, but the HS has been the one who (since the veil inside the Holiest of Holies was rent from top to bottom) has destroyed occultism around the world and allowed for the gospel to gain victory over all the spirits of the earth. Furthermore, once we are inhabited by the HS in our hearts, which makes us the temple of the HS and God, we are told that we are sealed or pledged until the day of redemption.  (2 Corinthians 1:21 Revelation 7:3, Ephesians 1:13 & Ephesians 4:30)

 

This is the same seal that is now being given to those during the tribulation that will allow them to escape much of the torment that is coming from these disembodied spirits that are full of vengeance and hate.  Unfortunately, many of the saints will be martyred during the tribulation, and that is why their spirits will cry out for God to avenge them.  (Revelations 6:10 & 20:4)

 

Connecting the Dots

So, let’s summarize what we have learned so far in all 5 parts of this series.  As we will see it is a lesson of “two kinds.” In other words, there are two categories that everything fits in as we head towards the “end times.”  This works much like the sorting room that our Bibles say is coming where God separates the wheat from the chaff and the sheep from the goats.  The following is a chart so we can illustrate how these passages sort out the end times into two people groups.  I believe that they are all connected.

 

Prophetic Sorting Passages Saved / Worship God Unsaved / Worship Satan
War of the Seed (Genesis 3) God’s Seed or Offspring Satan’s Seed or Offspring
Days of Noah (Genesis 6) Adamic Race – Noah was

Perfect in his Generations

New Seed or Hybrid Humans
Divided Kingdom or Final Kingdom of Daniel 2 Un-mingled Seed Mingled Seed
Mark of the Beast (Rev 13) Unmarked Foreheads / Hands Marked Foreheads/Hands
Opening of the Abyss

(Revelation 9)

Sealed or Closed Foreheads

Inhabited by the HS

Unsealed / Open Foreheads

Inhabited by Demons

 

The first three prophetic passages seem to indicate that DNA is being changed unless you are prepared to spiritualize the entire narrative.  But spiritualization doesn’t explain two different kinds of people or offspring.  Also, how could they be so different if they didn’t have different DNA?  The next question becomes, is it possible that there is also a genetic connection to the MOB and the sealing or unsealing of our foreheads?  I believe it is.

 

We are specifically told the “last days” will be like the DON, which means the DON & the MOB are manifesting simultaneously.  I believe that is because they both have a direct connection to genetic manipulation.  After all, the idea of a genetic marker (with its spiritual implications) could fulfill the general parameters of the description of the MOB.  In the last article, we shared how the genetic implications of changing our DNA might also explain why someone cannot be saved if they take this mark.

 

What we want to explore now is the idea that all of these things are connected.  For example, it would also make sense that upon the release of the demons of the Abyss that they could more easily possess the seed of Satan, than the seed of God.  This means our DNA could have something to do with how or why a Satanically marked forehead cannot later be sealed by God.

 

We have already detailed how altering our DNA might also alter our perception and change our very nature.  Again, think about how the chickens don’t act like chickens when we blend quail DNA into them.  Consequently, it is not that far-fetched to think that changing us genetically might also literally change our minds and our very nature.  Not only could changing our DNA open us up to perceive things differently, but we might see and experience things that we never have before.

 

Remember, Balaam’s donkey could see the angel, but Balaam could not.  This genetic difference between Balaam and his donkey could certainly be described as sealed or unsealed concerning what they each perceive in the spiritual realm.  In essence, we have the power to ignore angels, but the donkey did not.  Something about a donkey is more open to the spiritual world than we humans.  All the more reason why a Godly seal or signet is needed to prevent demonic possession after the opening of the Abyss.

 

Vice versa, a Satanic seal, mark, or signet like the MOB represents being open to Satan and being closed to God.  This is the point where humanity has been sorted and marked as either a sheep or a goat by their respective fathers. A Satanic seal in our foreheads is exactly what the Mark of the Beast appears to be.  This opening to demonic forces would also explain why the people who worship the beast are the ones who take his mark.  After all, the demons in the Abyss have already been worshiping this same king that was over them.

 

The idea of demonic possession could explain why, if these imprisoned spirits were possessing much of the population of the earth, they would naturally worship their king all over again.  Their foreheads have been opened up to see Satan as God.  In doing so, their conscience has been seared, and they have made their final choice.   The HS can no longer reach them or inhabit them.  Just as we are purchased with a price, so too their souls are claimed by Satan’s rights as a new father and creator.

 

Opening or Closing the Veil

The idea of a seal could also work like a veil.  The question is whether or not the veil is either open or closed.  Think of the Holiest of Holies in the temple of Jerusalem.  When that veil was rent from top to bottom, it symbolized that God’s dwelling place was once again in our hearts and that we no longer needed an intercessor between God and man.  The barrier was destroyed.  We were once again opened up to God and His HS to dwell inside of us bodily.

 

This same opening to God and the Holy Spirit also came with a closed veil or seal with regard to certain amounts of demonic influence and tampering.  For the most part, God’s seal or veil presides over the lives of a Christian all the way to salvation, thus preventing complete demonic possession along the way. This does not mean that Christians will not need some deliverance from spiritual oppression as many of us can attest. But the difference is we have been sealed by the HS for redemption.  While Salvation is a done deal, this same seal by the Holy Spirit also helps us recognize the MOB and strengthens us so that we don’t take it.

  • And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. (Ephesians 4:30)

The Mystery of the MOB

Now reverse this principle.  Is there a seal of Satan that can prevent someone from changing their mind about Jesus and repenting?  The Bible says that there is and it is called the MOB.  This mark seals someone to the domain of Satan and prevents God from being able to save them.  Thinking about the imagery of the Abyss, an unsealed forehead does the same thing.  In this way, the MOB and the unsealed forehead are two parts of the same puzzle.

 

An open, unsealed or unstable mind is why the people who take the MOB are the same people who worship all that is beastly.  Consequently, the MOB and the unsealed forehead are two distinct features of the end times and they appear to be intricately related.  Adding these two ideas to the fact that the “last days” would also see a repeat performance of the Days of Noah (Genesis 3 & 6), and we have a big hint that the MOB and the unsealed mind may have something to do with genetic manipulation.

 

The “Divided Kingdom” of Daniel 2 also gives testimony about how the last kingdom would have two kinds of people; mingled seed people and unmingled seed people.  These genetic changes or markers could explain why someone who chooses to take this mark could not be saved.  While all of us have the potential to become God’s children, it is our choice whether to follow Jesus that determines our fate. Somehow, choosing to take the MOB is doing the same thing.  This is why God has warned us about turning away from Him and about taking the MOB.

 

There are some plausible ways of thinking about how this could be.  If everything God writes is true, then truth cannot be mingled or mixed, and this could include changing our DNA.  Overwriting what God wrote turns the truth into a lie.  Choosing to change our DNA may have the same effect because we would be choosing to be something different than God created.  While this is hard to understand exactly how a mark could do this, it seems that taking the MOB would essentially be the ultimate way of denying that Jesus is Lord and worshiping Satan.

 

This is why the Bible has warned us 2000 years in advance of this coming deception.  So, that we would not be caught off guard.  Yet, that is exactly what is happening because no one is talking about this.  Of course, God had to leave some details out about exactly what the MOB is because Satan also reads the Bible and he would just change his strategy.  Unfortunately, Satan is the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning. (John 8:44)  Satan is out to kill and destroy us and the MOB or changing our DNA could be his ultimate plan on how to do that.  Because we now have the technology to change our seed or our DNA, we will be able to change the image of who we are; our very identity.

Changing our genetics could also change who our father is, which might explain why Satan and his demonic kingdom have unfettered access to us that we cannot repent of.  This is the all-in mentality of those who do or do not take the MOB because it seals or unseals them in their relationship with God.  But it still must be their choice.  The problem is that I believe there will be a great deception about what the MOB is.  Either way, it means there will come a day when the last person gets saved.  However, from now until the end of time, we are called to strive to reach each soul until everyone is sealed one way or the other.  Unfortunately, there will come a day when everyone has made their final choice.  So, what I am adding at this point is the idea that changing us genetically unseals something spiritually in our minds, our hearts, and our foreheads.

Opening the Third Eye

I have thought about the implications of being sealed or unsealed against demonic influence and possession for quite some time.  I have also thought about how all of these ideas seem to be connected.  But what I want to expound upon is the idea that the occultic world is working towards the unsealing of our minds and foreheads.  Not surprisingly, demonic possession and influence are clearly the goals of all false religions.

 

Another connection between an unsealed forehead and genetic manipulation is found in the  Greek word used for the forehead.  The word “metopon,” which is taken from the root word “meta,” is a term that DC comics often use to describe superheroes – AKA – metahumans. The idea of Meta-humans means they have been altered in some way.  But of all the changes that can be made to a human, why can’t our minds be changed the same way.  When we talk about opening up our minds, why couldn’t that be like opening up a portal where foreign entities could come and go?

 

After all, even our spirit can leave our body, which is why we are told that “when we are absent from our body, we are present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:8)  From an occultic view, this openness to demonic influence is often referred to as opening our “Third Eye,” which could certainly be thought of as the end game of virtually all of Satan’s schemes.  What most Christians are unaware of is that the occultic world has been using mind-altering drugs, yoga, and eastern styles of meditation to open our third eye for thousands of years.

 

The Bindi or Tilak Mark

If we are thinking about a mark in our foreheads, it is hard not to notice there is a religion that puts a mark in the middle of the foreheads of its followers.  These marks are part of Hinduism, but can also be in Buddhism and Jainism.  Respectively, the marks for married women are called a Bindi, while the Tilak is usually designated for men.

 

Both marks represent the point at which creation begins and everything is united, which is similar to a mandala.  Both of these marks also symbolize an awakening or an opening of the “third eye,” which represents the opening of someone’s spiritual eyes.   This is the specific goal of all meditation, but it is also symbolic of something called a “Kundalini Awakening.”

 

In case you were wondering, the “Kundalini” is a coiled serpent.  The serpent or serpents coils itself around the spine until it bites down on something in our foreheads.  Traditionally, what the serpent bites down on is thought to be the pineal gland.  This is curious because the pineal gland is an endocrine gland responsible for the production of melatonin, which is part of our internal clock governing our sleep.  The pineal gland also helps us sense how dark or light it is.  It may even help us with our sense of direction because of the presence of magnetite.

 

The only connection between the third eye and the pineal gland I can theorize is that our sleep is certainly connected to our dreams.  We know dreams can get weird as the veil in our consciousness may fluctuate between the physical and spiritual.  Demons also hate the light and love darkness.  The idea of perceiving more darkness might allow for more demonic interaction.

 

This is not a lot to go on, but there was a fringe experiment that used magnets placed on the forehead to stimulate the pineal gland.  This was done by Dr. Walter Rawls, and it produced some ghostly visions and interactions.  The point I am trying to make is that historically the occultic world has held the same belief system that there is something inside our foreheads that opens or closes us to demonic forces.

  • https://arizonaparanormalresearch.com/2017/11/06/the-pineal-gland-magnet-experiment/

Of course, the most famous “third eye” on the planet is on our one-dollar bill. Knowing that our $1 bill is a masonic trestle board (basically a visual illustration of their ultimate plan), allows us to see that there are a group of people who have been here since the founding of our country that is actively trying to awaken the “third eye” hidden within our foreheads.  Thus is their intention for America, but God still has His purposes that cannot be thwarted.

 

If we still think there is nothing spiritual about our foreheads, then why do we anoint people on their foreheads when we pray for them?  Symbolically, the oil is thought of as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.  What is it about our foreheads that are central to the entrance of the HS?  Yet, this tradition also sheds light on the idea that our enemy might also have an agenda hidden in our foreheads.

 

Yoga Opens Doors

This is one of those stories that is difficult to believe, but I received its first hand from a patient of mine.  He and his entire family are from Italy and mostly Catholic.  I can’t remember how we got on the topic of demonic possession, but I remember him saying that he never used to believe in that until he experienced what happened to his brother.  One day his brother was doing yoga and his instructor walked up to him and touched him on his forehead.  What happened next was very reminiscent of someone coming unsealed in their forehead.

 

His brother called him on the way home and told him that it was like he was spiritually raped.  Later, he found out that his brother cried for hours after he got home.  Thing’s kind of went back to normal for a while.  At least until the summer when their whole family took a vacation/pilgrimage back to Italy.  Once they got there, his brother started acting strange.  Soon, the behavior escalated to the point that the police got involved.  Now, most people know that you do not want to go to prison in Italy.  Luckily, they were able to negotiate a deal with the police.

 

That’s when this man had to spend 3 days with his brother in a hotel room trying to restrain him from doing things he shouldn’t.  That is when this man realized that his brother wasn’t just having a psychotic break, his brother was demonically possessed.  There was no way to explain the experience of someone you have known your whole life acting and saying the things that his brother did.  But as soon as they got on the plane home, his brother started going back to normal.

 

Now most of us have come to accept the practice of yoga in our society as it seems harmless enough.  But there is a spiritual side to yoga.  I always used to recommend staying away from the spiritual part of yoga.  This means not participating in any kind of eastern meditation, chanting, or visualizations.  The problem is that even the positions or poses are a form of worship within the Hindu religion because they are creating a submissive posture towards one of their gods.  They can also be physically rehearsing some of the stories or traditions related to the gods of Hinduism.

 

Portals to Our Minds

Another point to make clear is that while the Bible calls us to meditate on God and His words, this is not what is happening with eastern meditation.  The goal of Eastern meditation is to empty one’s self to connect with nature, themselves, and universal consciousness; whoever that is.  Meditation, like drugs, can put us in an altered state where we can be influenced and changed by the forces that we are opening ourselves up to.  This is the opposite of our call as Christians to memorize scripture, sing songs, pray, and fill ourselves through our relationship and communion with God.

  • Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)

Steven Bancarz, who came out of the new age practices, has a great video on YouTube called “Proof Meditation Is Dangerous & Demonic.”  In the video, he has many explosive excerpts from a mindfulness yoga master by the name of Leo.  Leo has a website called actualized.org and he has more than a million followers.  After watching this video myself, what I will tell you is that eastern meditation is the opposite of “thinking about excellent things.”

 

It doesn’t even fit the idea of mindfulness.  If we experience what Leo says we can experience in meditation, we could be talking about full-on demonic possession.  Meditation is also instrumental in experiencing out-of-body experiences, astral projection, remote viewing, channeling, and remote writing. Here are some excerpts from mindfulness moments with Leo!

 

“Expect waves of insanity and madness…  Expect depression and meaninglessness…  Expect Suicidal thoughts…  Doing drugs, alcohol…  Expect nightmares… Expect weird dreams: where you have sex with your mother, killing people, or butchering your dog…  You may start to behave like an animal and howl at the moon… You may experience paranormal phenomenon: past lives, seeing the future, out-of-body experiences, see spirits, hear weird voices, see angels and demons standing in front of you…  You may see gods…  giant insects…  Experience: entities, aliens, being abducted or probed…

You may experience a Kundalini awakening…  Feel as if you are losing your mind…

Experience weird energy moving through you…  Like you are being controlled by a puppet master…  Almost like you are being demonically possessed.”

Altered States

But yoga is not the sin of choice to open our spiritual eyes.  But the sins of witchcraft and sorcery are.  In the Bible, the Greek word for this kind of sin is called “Pharmakeia,” which is where we get our English word pharmacy.  Both Shaman and witch doctors have been used mind-altering drugs for millennia to channel thoughts from the mind of Satan and the hearts of demons to their sages, adepts, and illuminated ones.  Could some of the fog that has started to descend upon our world be coming from the same source?

 

This is what is behind the great push to legalize drugs in our country.  This is especially true of marijuana because it is the first drug that most people use to achieve this kind of altered state of consciousness.  Already, America is in the midst of an opioid epidemic, and one in six Americans is taking some kind of psychiatric drugs, which are mostly antidepressants.  Additionally, 31.9 million Americans are on illicit drugs. Maybe this is why something is happening to the minds of Americans.  Most people are also shocked to know that drugs and churches go together like peas and carrots.  This is why “Legal DMT Churches Are Popping Up Across the United States and Canada.”

DMT (N, N-Dimethyltryptamine) is a recreational psychotropic drug used by various cultures to induces alterations in perception, consciousness, cognition, and behavior.  The reason they are having success in getting this drug legal for their use is that they can make a case that ayahuasca tea, which contains DMT, has been historically used for spiritual development based on sacred texts.  DMT, like other mind-altering drugs, can open a portal to our minds so that we can see or interact with the demonic world.

 

A Seared Conscience

Why do people watch or record someone in need of help, but they don’t actually help them?  Why do people pull out their phones, but they don’t roll up their sleeves?  I am still dumbfounded by the success of YouTube, Facebook, and taking selfies because people would rather watch than participate.  People would rather be seen doing something rather than just savor the moment.

 

But this is only one of a million downward trends.  For example, I am personally frightened at how successful horror movies have become generating 413 million dollars in 2012.  People are spending thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours a year watching people being tortured and mutilated for pleasure.  We all know that gore, violence, and sex have taken over the TV and movie industry.  Both of them allow us to live in a virtual or voyeur reality.  People are obsessed with avatars, role-playing games, and video games that allow them to go through the motions of virtually every sin on the planet. The pornography industry is larger than we can imagine and it mostly works the same way.

 

The point is that something is happening to the conscience of America.  How else can celebrate being able to kill a baby the day before it’s born by lighting up buildings in New York City?  We have no conscience, and there is no outrage at sin.  In fact, it is righteousness that has become outrageous and even illegal.  Saving a child from being killed is still applauded, but stepping between a woman and an abortion clinic is not even though the same thing is happening.

 

Yet, the battle for what is in our minds and hearts is being tipped toward the doctrine of demons because of all the factors we have been discussing in this part of the series.  These are the schemes of the Devil that we must not be ignorant of and what we must begin to warn people about. Yet, this subject rarely makes it into any sermons.  Furthermore, the opening of the Abyss represents an outpouring of un-holy spirits upon the world, which can only be countered by an outpouring of the Holy Spirit that seals us in our foreheads against the deception that is coming.  This is what the Bible means when it talks about the impossibility of the elect to be deceived.

 

In our last article, we will discuss how to handle this final return of the pagan age that will be brought on by the opening of the Abyss.  The goal of this outpouring of un-holy spirits that is coming is to mark as many as they can.  This is also our goal and it too will be accomplished by an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the last days. (Acts 2:16-21) Understand,  that God is not willing that any should perish and that is why we must occupy (fighting for each soul that is still left unsealed) until He comes. (2 Peter 3:9, Luke 19:13)   For now, I have decided to end with this part with what I call the “sorting room” because that is what I believe is coming next.

 

The Sorting Room

  • “Therefore, everyone who will confess in Me before men, I also will confess in him before My Father in the heavens. And whoever shall deny Me before men, I also will deny him before My Father in the heavens. Do not think that I came to bring peace to the earth; I came not to bring peace, but a sword.  For I came to set at variance ‘A man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and the enemies of the man are his own household.” (Luke 12:49-53)

 

The message of the Abyss is that spirits are coming to test the faith of everyone on the face of the earth.  We will be sifted and we will be shaken. (Haggai 2:7) This is the sorting room that I believe the Bible says is coming.  Everything I have covered so far has sorted people into two groups.  This is because Jesus is the dividing line of history and the heart.  Consequently, as we see history coming to a close, we have to know that the sheep would be separated from the goats.

 

While I believe we still need to be peacemakers, there can be no more mincing of words for our enemy is now fully formed and on the loose.  This is only the first of many great “causes” to come and sort the world’s populations.  Yet, the Covid narrative and the gene therapy that is being marketed as a vaccine is the greatest sorting event I have ever witnessed.  Even our last election was a massive sorting event and we got schooled.  It has been painful to read the articles of Christians who supported Biden now saying that he has betrayed them.  The deceived are starting to repent.

 

But of all the things we have heard this past year that foretells our future was the proposal by some communists, posing as Democrats, that the only thing that could fix our countries problems were “re-education camps.”  Of course, any similarity to concentration camps is just strictly coincidental.  Yet, these are the kinds of things that only a Communist or Nazi could say, and both America and the media tolerated it.  This is the goal of the “New World Order.” The reality of the communist takeover of America cannot be denied unless you were to hear the sermons still being preached across our lands.

 

Then one would think things are going along just fine, but this is all pretending.  The problem is that the one-world government that the Bible says incoming is consistent with either communism or a dictatorship.  So, whether you agree with me about this being the pre-cursor to the MOB, it is impossible to argue that the Covid narrative is not putting into place all the necessary controls that the “beast” government will one day use to bring about the full version of the MOB.  Therefore, this must be a precursor.

 

Already, half of Americans are OK with having a vaccine passport even though that would be the end of freedom, democracy, and our rights to our bodies.  The administration of this narrative is also a dividing line between those who believe what is on TV and will comply with the new world order versus the ones who won’t. When I think about sorting people, this story told by a master Mason came to mind.  When they are sorting people for their different degrees, they call them into a room and ask them some simple questions.

 

The Ultimate Question

Two people are asked to spit on a cross.  Depending on their response, the test giver comes up with a way of justifying what they did.  “I can see by you spitting on this cross that you recognize that on some level this is just a piece of wood.  You can go through door number one.”  Vice versa, “I can see by you refusing to spit on this cross that you are a man that will not compromise on principle.  You can go through door number two.”  This is exactly what is happening in America.  Are you Republican or Democrat?  Are you white or black?  Are you for or against abortion?  Are you willing to be vaccinated or not?  Do you believe in mandates or not?

 

One of my great opportunities to serve is as president of the board for soilminstries.org.  Serving Others in Love is a pipeline of vision and resources to Honduras, which is the second poorest country in our hemisphere.  Just a few weeks ago we were able to book a doctor for a  medical mission trip.  When we were wrapping up some of the details with the manager, she says, “Oh, one last thing.  Everyone who goes with us must be vaccinated.”  I was shocked.  Vaccines are now literally being used to divide Christians and keep them from even doing charity together.

 

But if we are Christians, then we cannot be for mandatory vaccinations because they take away our freedom of choice and because they require a person to give up access to their body.  Not only is their body the temple of the Holy Spirit, but a pandemic perfectly fits the “cause” talked about in the Bible as to how the MOB is rolled out upon the world.  Consequently, if we are going to call ourselves pastors or Shepard’s of the flock, then we cannot remain silent about Satan’s schemes even if they are political schemes.  Yet, the time for sorting is here.  Souls will be both won and lost.

 

Very soon there will be no such thing as a cultural Christian.  Christians will either live by their Bible or they will perish believing what is on television.  The pretending has to stop.  Things are not going back to normal. We can no longer pretend that America is not hostile to both freedom and Christianity.  The Democratic party is full of communists.  They have fully admitted that they plan to add more democratic states and stack the Supreme Court. They are in complete control to the point of eliminating our Constitution.  Consequently, we are losing an unprecedented amount of freedoms at what seems like every other second.

 

Virtually every media, news source, government institution, company, big business, and internet search engine is in on it.  There is nowhere for any conservative voices of reason to proclaim the truth to our society regarding the error of our ways.  All except for one!  The church is still here, but it won’t be able to do anything unless if we continue to allow the government to close our doors and keep us politically correct.  However, we won’t be able to do anything until we return to preaching the whole of scripture, and that includes Bible prophecy. It is the book called the Bible, sitting in my living room perpetually unchanged for 1000’s of years, that is our only source of truth.

 

The Bible is what we need to make it through the times that are coming.  I hope you will join me in the next article when we talk about how to differentiate between the host of spirits that will be poured out upon the world.  We will also whittle all of this down to what this all means for us as Christians, and how we can still be a light amid this darkness and salt in light of all this decay.

The message of Passover is not simply one about God delivering His people Israel thousands of years ago. It is also about God delivering His people today. The Passover Seder begins looking back (in time) to Pharoah and the pyramids. It begins by celebrating what God did in the past, but after dinner it changes direction.
A person opens the door to see if Elijah is there waiting to join their Seder. If he’s not there, the person calls out, “Come out, come out wherever you are. Elijah you are our special guest of honor. We want you to join us tonight. Look, we’ve made a special cup and your name is written on it. It’s the prettiest cup on the table. We have some horse radish, charoset and matzah waiting for you. We also have a glass of Manischewitz Wine poured for you.” People have always known that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
Why do we invite Elijah to our Passover Seder? Elijah was not in Egypt during the time of slavery. He didn’t grow up with Moses. Elijah and Moses did not graduate from Pharoah High School together. What’s so special about Elijah?
As I thought about it, it’s not really Elijah people want. It’s what Elijah will do for us. It’s about who Elijah will bring with him. Elijah never died; he was physically taken up to heaven. People want Elijah to come because he will come back to earth, and when he does, he will bring the Messiah.
Once we invite Elijah to our Seder we are no longer looking back in history, but ahead to the future. Then we drink more cups of wine. The cups of wine were added to the Seder to remind us of the promises of God found in Exodus 6.
The fourth of cup reminds us of God’s promise: “I will take you for My people.” The 3rd cup reminded us that God will redeem or purchase us. When He does, we are His possession and belong to Him; He is Adonai our Lord and Master. This is important, but God wants more out of our relationship with Him. He wants to take us to be His bride. God purchased or redeemed Israel so He could marry them at Mt. Sinai.
Then Exodus 6 contains one more promise. This means we need to drink 5 cups (not 4). God’s 5th promise is: “I will bring you into the land.” God did not simply bring Israel out of Egypt. He did not just marry them at Mt. Sinai. God did not have their honeymoon last forever. After “enjoying” a 40-year honeymoon in the wilderness, God brought His bride home to Israel.
Israel was passing through Sinai on their way home. We too are passing through earth on our way home to heaven. We are foreigners and strangers on earth so don’t get too comfortable here. Yeshua is preparing our eternal home. Once it is ready, He will get us to bring us home. We end the Seder declaring, “Next year in Jerusalem.” It’s not just earthly Jerusalem we’re longing for, but the heavenly Jerusalem. Thank God for what He did in the past and look forward to what He promises to do in the near future. May we all be together next year in (the heavenly) Jerusalem!

Trans-humanism In the Bible
In our last article, we talked about the Covid vaccines and how they are, at minimum, experimental, and at maximum, the precursor to the Mark of the Beast (MOB) because we are beginning to change our genetic material from what God wrote to something that man wrote. They are changing our creator. But if you are still skeptical, then ask yourself this question. If they have isolated this virus and have an accurate test for Covid, then why are 80% of the people who test positive for Covid asymptomatic?

They also developed a natural “herd” immunity to Covid, which will last for a significant period. So, why are they pushing this vaccine so hard? Now consider that up to 80% of the people who take the vaccine become symptomatic. It becomes obvious, just as 55,000 doctors said in the “Great Barrington Declaration,” that head-to-head natural immunity (God’s way) is way better than man-made immunity.

Given these statistics, why would anyone take this vaccine if they have no risk of dying from Covid? Why are people around the globe losing their jobs and being bullied into taking this vaccine? Especially when here in the USA the “CDC Reports 1,637 Deaths Following COVID-19 Vaccinations.” In Europe, many countries have pulled the AstraZeneca vaccine due to complications. None of this makes sense. What is the real agenda?

An Obsession with “Super”
In this current article, we want to explore some of the other temptations to alter our DNA. But the biggest question that we will address is whether the Bible has warned us of this coming genetic revolution. More specifically, did the Bible predict that something like trans-humanism would come along to offer something that Satan has been promising mankind since the Garden of Eden?

It is becoming more obvious that our society is becoming obsessed with “superheroes” or people with superpowers. If we add in aliens, magic, and sorcery, we have the plot of virtually every new movie. Yet, with all of this talk of superheroes, I want to remind us that Jesus is still the greatest superhero of all. Why? Because Jesus had to be born a man, live like a man, and die like a man to redeem all of mankind. Someone who wasn’t a man, with different DNA than ours, could not have achieved this superhuman feat because he wasn’t fully human.

This is the power of the Gospel. Through Christ, we will get a new super body, a new super destiny, a new super identity, a new super home, and new superpowers to boot. This is why the desire for something more is buried so deep within our hearts because this is what we were created to be. Satan knows how tempting this is for us. Consequently, the motivation to take the MOB may be more than just fear. It could simply be linked to our desire to be like God. Isn’t that why we are so fascinated with both superheroes and the supernatural world? Wasn’t this temptation to be super part of Satan’s first spiel? Maybe it wasn’t all fluff. Maybe the MOB will in some way full fill part of Satan’s promise to make us a little more “god-like.”

Altered Perception
What are some of the consequences of changing our DNA? Unfortunately, the consequences could be endless. I have heard Dr. Tom Horn talk many times about how when we transfer quail DNA in chickens, they move their heads like quail and sound like quail. These are complex memories and patterns of behavior that are instantaneously changed. Applying this to human beings could turn them into something that is not fully human. Even Francis Fukuyama, the Nobel peace prize-winning scientist that wrote “What is the world’s most dangerous idea?” did not stop there. He went on to write “Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution.”

This is where looking at the super-soldier program may be our best illustration of what is possible. What exactly are they looking to change about humans in this program? Some of the scary truth comes out in the article, “DARPA Continues Human Experiments to Create Military Super Soldiers.” In the article, they specifically say they are trying to: “enhance a soldier’s ability to kill without care or remorse, shows no fear, can fight battle after battle without fatigue, and generally behave more like a machine than a man.”

Unfortunately, they have been experimenting on human beings in this way for more than 20 years. But who would call the soldier they are describing human? More importantly, who would want to sign up for that? Honestly, that description could easily be a description of your average demon. If you are still struggling with understanding how unlocking and sequencing DNA is changing mankind, then here are some movies to watch that might help to get a handle on just what is possible.
INHUMAN: THE NEXT AND FINAL PHASE OF MANKIND IS HERE!
“Human Nature” & “Unnatural Selection” on Netflix – Detailing CRISPR technology
Trans-humanism?
Originally trans-humanism was changing our DNA and combining or splicing it with other species, but with the invention of CRISPR technology, it is possible to sequence our own designer DNA instead of using pre-existing DNA strands and splicing them together. What people fail to understand is that the fundamental tenet of transhumanism is to re-make mankind into a new image, and one of our own (or someone else’s) choosing. We have the technology to combine plants, animals, and humans to make human-hybrids that are stronger, smarter, less violent, and live much longer. This is the supposedly positive side of altering our DNA, but the super-soldiers sound more like demons more than men.

Nonetheless, if the promises of trans-humanism come true, which is to make a better man than God did, then how might this also be another kind of “cause” that motivates the whole world to take this marker? Who doesn’t want to look better, live longer, and have superpowers? Unfortunately, no matter what your narrative is, changing our DNA would be the extinction of the human race, at least the one that God created. God simply can not say that He created the kinds of changes that are being proposed. This is the point where we would stop being what God created and become something else.

This is why trans-humanism is the world’s most dangerous idea because it is the end of the human race and the beginning of another race. After all, from their perspective, we are just evolving. The problem is we are starting to evolve into beings who think they are gods. This is also why I believe trans-humanism is connected to the MOB. Certainly, the MOB would have to be considered the single most dangerous threat to salvation that mankind will ever see. Consequently, genetic manipulation of the human genome is the game-changer that the church is completely unaware of. But where their plan converges on our Bibles is that they need access to our bodies to execute their plan.

As we speak most of us are even now focused on some kind of outrageous assault on our freedoms because there are too many “causes” destroying our country to even count. Wouldn’t now be the perfect time to slip the world’s most dangerous agenda into play. Certainly, it could be argued that taking a vaccine is one of the main narratives of the COVID-19 deception. This elimination of the original genome that God wrote Himself could easily be the reason why God tells us that He has to return otherwise no one would be left. (Matthew 24:22)

Maybe, God is talking about His children. The ones who have His DNA, and the ones who bear His image. But none of this is possible unless they get access to our bodies. Even now they are getting us comfortable with their template and things like DNA and RNA. But the question is: did the Bible give us some huge hints that there might be a genetic component to the MOB?

For now, understand that trans-humanism is asking a question that has been raging in our minds since the temptation in the Garden of Eden. Do we want to be God’s children, or do we want to be something of our own making? Do we want to be a god? Now we must look deep within ourselves and decide what we wish to become. This has always been Satan’s agenda, to have a seed that looks like him.

While technology is getting better every day, there are still some glitches in the plan. They are not ready to roll out the MOB, but this cannot be a coincidence that these are the first vaccines to have mRNA. The mistake would be to think that these vaccines aren’t going to do anything, even though they won’t cause us to lose our salvation. Yet the fact remains that genetic codes are being sent into our bodies to re-write our God-given RNA, which in turn will make our bodies begin to do unnatural things. They are saying that these codes are only temporary, but that was not what happened when they tried this same technology on mice. That was not what Tal Zaks, chief medical officer of Moderna said was happening. So, my advice is don’t change anything God did.

The Precursor to MOB
The mistake would be to think that just because the first rocket didn’t put a man on the moon, that it didn’t go anywhere. Likewise, it would be a mistake to think that changing our RNA is harmless. More importantly, we could be looking for a treatment plan instead of a “one and done” deal. Rolling things out in stages would certainly avoid the obvious objections to the gross undeniable change that the MOB seems to cause.

A better way to roll this out simply means turning up the heat slowly. In other words, small genetic changes could produce smaller behavioral or spiritual changes that somehow change our perceptions and/or our ability to connect with God. In other words, our conscience may be the most important tool we have to remain in a good relationship with God. It is also true, that changing what we can see could also change us. What am I talking about? In the same way that Balaam’s donkey could see the angel and Balaam couldn’t, changing our DNA could change the world that we think we live in. A veil could be opened or closed. Here is an example that happened in one of the trials by AstraZeneca.
“They’ve Killed God; I Can’t Feel God Anymore – My Soul Is Dead” After the Vaccine.
https://beforeitsnews.com/prophecy/2020/09/theyve-killed-god-i-cant-feel-god-anymore-my-soul-is-dead-after-the-vaccine-urgent-read-2514214.html?fbclid=IwAR3nVNZGeCXg1_SjmswXoc9UqWzQwA9HUyuYjntaGf7b4Un4RZ4JKYQQebg
Not only can eyes be opened or closed, but certainly, splicing reptilian or wolf DNA into a human being would allow them to be able to kill more easily and with less remorse. This is why opening up our DNA for anyone to tamper with becomes the “pandora’s box” that should not be opened. The fact that they are using mRNA is a sign that they are now going to try and use genetic therapy to accomplish their goals from here on out.

The Covid deception is the greatest deception we have seen in our lifetime. It has also provided the “chaos” that the world’s governments have needed to require access to our bodies so that they can tamper with our genetic material? How is that not at least putting an engine on a frame with wheels? Surely, they are trying to make a car. Surely, this is at least a crime against humanity, and how can we as the church, keep silent for those that will hear?

The Great Deception
The problem that I have with most everyone in the field of Bible prophecy is that they are always telling us what is going to happen. Everyone is so sure that they know what the MOB that they aren’t even looking for it. I will be the first to tell you that I do not know what is going to happen, or even what it will all look like when it happens. This is why I believe we must speculate on the few things the Bible gives us based upon what we are seeing happen right now. (Luke 21) I believe this chaos, deception, governmental mandates, loss of freedom, and now experimental vaccines with RNA inside them are clearly saying that now is the season and Jesus is coming soon.

But what exactly are the churches standing up for? Mostly what I see is business as usual. Just continuing to preach their next sermon series and trying to stay away from anything political. Unfortunately, most people shut down this line of inquiry before I can even get started. That is why none of this is going to convince some people. I’ve had friends of mine that will tell me, “I’m sorry Kevan, you’re never going be able to convince me that the Mark of the Beast has anything to do with vaccines.” But honestly, this only proves my point that vaccines would be the perfect way to start a pattern of needing access to our bodies. People aren’t looking for it.

They have had many vaccines before and they didn’t turn into green-eyed monsters. But Christians are not the only ones to be alarmed at the idea of changing any of our genetic codes. Like it or not, changing our DNA is the world’s most dangerous idea. Not only is that idea here, but it is also now being partially executed through a vaccine that is surrounded by chaos.

Genetic Manipulation in the Bible.
There are many troubling passages in the Bible, but Genesis the third chapter is certainly one of them. This is the chapter that gives us the first prophecy in the Bible, and it is called the “War of the Seeds.” The key part of what God says to Adam, Eve, and Satan is “I will put enmity (make enemies, open hostility, war) between you and the woman, and between your seed (offspring) and her Seed; He shall [fatally] bruise your head, and you shall [only] bruise His heel.” AMP This is prophetic of the coming of the Messiah who is the “seed or offspring” of a woman, which was fulfilled through the virgin birth.

The problem is that most people do not look at this verse as the template or strategy for how Satan plans on defeating God and His children. Satan is looking to have children himself. There is almost nothing that God does that Satan does not want to emulate. It would also seem to wage this war against God that Satan needs a lot of help. Remember, he only took one-third of the angels in heaven with him, so he is hopelessly outnumbered. (Revelations 12:4) Not only does Satan need children, but he also wants them, and the more they look like him the better.

Certainly, Satan’s desire to also take everything of God’s is why we are in a battle for souls of humanity, but does someone giving their soul to Satan fulfill this passage? I don’t believe that it does. This passage says that Satan’s greatest plan is to create offspring that will help him wage this war against God’s children. The problem is where is Satan’s seed or offspring? An even more fundamental question is how could Satan alter the DNA necessary to make his dreams come alive?

The Days of Noah
How this could happen, we are not able to answer because we have no way of knowing how much technology Satan knows. The mistake would be to think that Satan isn’t actively exploring any avenue that will help him win the war. Either way, Genesis 3 should be considered to be the backdrop for Genesis 6:6, which is the strangest story in the Bible. However, if we were already looking for the appearance of a new creature that was not created in the first 6 days of creation, then it becomes just a little less strange.

Of all the questions surrounding Genesis 6, we have to remember that the end result was the creation of the Nephilim. The Nephilim are the only real candidates for the literal “seed (offspring) of Satan” in the entire Bible. The problem is that “how this happened” is still controversial even to this day. Now I am not here to tell us that I know whether disobedient angels can have sex with women, but I am not sure that is absolutely what the text says. More importantly, if I can take a swab of anyone’s DNA and have a baby with them, no matter what sex they are, then how is Satan less technologically advanced than we are?
What I get from the passage is quite simple. Human women were taken by fallen angels, but they were also punished for what they did in the Days of Noah. (2 Peter 2:4 & Jude 1:6) The “Sons of God” did not marry these women and there was no wedding. They did not seem to keep them for very long either. When they came back, they were pregnant. When they delivered these children, they were different in every way, which means that they had different DNA. What could have changed their DNA?
While the Nephilim were different, they could still breed with humans, which means they were human hybrids. Again, if left unchecked, these genetic manipulations would have destroyed all of God’s creation by contaminating His seed or offspring. Considering that the Messiah was to come from the “seed of the woman” this was not something God could overlook. This would certainly be considered an act of war by anyone’s standards. Consequently, God had to intervene to keep the Messianic lineage uncorrupted.
Genetic integrity is also why Noah was chosen because he was “perfect in his generations.” (Genesis 6:9) The Bible goes on to tell us that God destroyed the world with a flood because all flesh had become corrupt. (Genesis 6:12) Taking that passage literally could certainly mean that their DNA had become corrupt. All of the “Days of Noah” narrative fits the Genesis 3 template. If the Nephilim or giants were indeed Satan’s genetically modified offspring, then the only question left to ask is, “were they at war with humans?

The Bible teaches that these two people groups were at war with each other. While the flood took care of most of the issue, the Nephilim continued on the earth for some time after the flood, but that was not to last. That is because the Bible commanded that they were to be killed everywhere they were found. (Deuteronomy 2:10-11, 2:21, and 3:11) These specific passages have become notorious with critics of the Bible because they have allowed them to say that God of the Bible could not possibly be a God of love to do such things.

But if we understand what God said would happen immediately after the fall of mankind (the war between the two seeds or offspring), then all of this starts to make sense. Different seed, different offspring, and their differing genetic codes are important themes from the very beginnings of our faith, but only in modern times have we been able to understand the genetic implications of these passages.

The DNA Wars
Why is all of this important? Jesus specifically tells us that just before He returns it would be just like the “Days of Noah. (DON) (Matthew 24:37) No matter what really happened in Genesis 6, the Nephilim narrative becomes the distinguishing feature of the DON. Can it then be a coincidence that in modern terms, genetic manipulation in the form of trans-humanism is once again producing a new offspring with a different seed or DNA? Their mistake the first time was to make these hybrids too different. Keep this in mind for the next phase of their age-old war. The difference this time is that God will once again have to intervene.

So, the obvious question is: if one of the major indicators that we are in the end times is that we see a new kind of hybrid human being, then maybe the Days of Noah are once again upon us. Combine this with the “super sign,” which is the mere existence of Israel and the controversy that has caused around the world, then everything necessary seems to be in play for the “end times.” (Zechariah 12:3) So, why can’t the MOB start to show its head?

Especially if there is a connection between the seed of Satan, the DON, and the MOB. Yet, there is yet another passage that speaks of two kinds of seed that is directly applicable to the people groups living in the last days. I am talking about the “Divided Kingdom” found in Daniel the 2nd chapter. Recall we are talking about the image with the head of gold followed by silver, bronze, iron, and then a unique or “divided kingdom” because it has two distinct kinds of people. Partly iron and partly clay, in that “they” mingled themselves with the seed of men, and the two would not mix.” (Daniel 2:43)

Who are the “they” being referenced here? One would have to say that the best candidate would have to be the same beings that pulled off the same feet previously. This would be the “Sons of God” or disobedient angels who were punished for what they did in the Days of Noah. Again, thinking back to the only hybrid people with mixed, mingled, or with a different seed certainly causes Genesis 3 & 6 to come to mind. Again, the Nephilim are the only clear candidates.

So, Daniel is giving us some great information reminiscent of the DON. Here is what I hear Daniel saying. In the “last days,” there are two kinds of people. Those with mingled or mixed seed, and those with unmingled or unmixed seed. But the two do not get along. Again, the seed we are talking about here in modern terms is DNA, which certainly produces two different kinds of people or offspring.

True to history, the idea of putting these two people groups together again would certainly be like trying to mix oil and vinegar. It is not going to work and everyone knows it. This is why the National Institutes of Health granted $773,000 to Case Law School to help determine “ethically acceptable rules” for how to integrate hybrids into our society. When this comes out, a new level of racism is going to immerge between those who have human DNA versus those with trans-human DNA.
https://www.christianpost.com/news/listening-to-the-transhumanists.html
Of course, the biggest complaint against some of the narratives involving the Nephilim is the lack of physical evidence. This is where I believe there is a provable cover-up. Some of this cover-up is detailed in the movie, “A Race of Giants.” The movie is not from a religious point of view. Nonetheless, the movie documents that in America alone there have been over 1,500 newspaper accounts that have referenced 3,781 skeletons of a race of blond-haired giants (7-12 feet tall).

Recently, LA Marzulli has documented many of the elongated skulls, and shown how they have different DNA than we have. (See the Watcher Series: Expert Analysis: DNA results) I go further into this argument in my “Days of Noah” series on prophecydays.com. There you will find a video link, an MP3 audio file, and a download of my notes. At this point, the fundamental question for many of us is why is changing our genetic codes a big problem.

Kinsman Redeemer Idea
For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. (Hebrews 10:4)
Animals cannot redeem humans, but Jesus can because he is related to us. Jesus is our kinsman. This is why Jesus had to be born a man, live like a man, and die like a man to redeem mankind. Jesus would be the first one redeemed to heaven, which is a higher reality of love, holiness, and joy unspeakable. Even though that higher reality has been watching over us, and cheering for us, there was no way that we could ever redeem ourselves. Vice versa, heaven could not compromise itself and allow evil to enter back in. (Revelation 21:27) No man was good enough until Jesus.

That is why Jesus’s disciples called him “good.” (Mark 10:18) Because Jesus was God, He was able to be the unblemished lamb and redeem the sins of the whole world. He redeemed our race because He was of the same race. Even more glorious, Jesus now sits on the throne of heaven. What people forget (and what Dr. Michel Heiser points out) is that there is a government in heaven that includes divine courts and counsels. The point is that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus destroyed the legal obstacles that were preventing the reinstatement of our birthright as children of God.

That being said, if we were to argue the rights of a father to his son here on earth, most likely the court would order a DNA test. If the father has no common alleles, then that father would have no paternal rights to the child. Why do we do that? Because in some sense the father is also partly the creator of the child, but only if part of the father is also in his child. Now, I am not trying to say that our DNA saves us, but it is part of who we are and why we look like our Father.

On the other hand, we are not just spiritual beings, even though it is being “born again” of the spirit that ultimately saves our souls and our bodies. The great news is that this rebirth of the spirit will one day also give us back a new physical body. Not surprisingly, all of the saints who have gone on before us are waiting expectantly for the day when they get their bodies back. (Romans 8:23) The mistake is to think of our bodies as only a box we live in as if they do not affect who we are. The reason the Saints groaned is that without their bodies they were incomplete. Our bodies give us input, they affect our identity, and they give us a way to connect and express ourselves in the physical world. Part of us is in our bodies.

God Wrote Our DNA
If the word of God is sharper than any sword, then what is it about God’s words that makes them so powerful? There are many components to this answer, but part of the answer is that words relay information. If they come from God, they communicate correct information or truth. As we know from scripture, it is the truth that sets us free from the lies of Satan. More importantly, the right words or truth are more powerful at creating a right relationship with God than any other commodity.

Here is the parallel. Just like words, DNA is an information system. But unlike words, DNA also has the ability to change the physical reality of the user. This is why God has specifically commanded that we not mix species. (Leviticus 19:198) If we change DNA in any species, then we are changing what God created, which means we are playing God. We are also changing the image from something that God had previously called “good.” But are we capable of making something better than God?

When I think about changing anything God did or said, I like to remember that if God said something different, then all of reality would change. This is why God never changes because if He did, He would be less Holy, righteous, and loving. This is also why changing any part of what God created is wrong in general. However, when it is directed at changing our DNA, I believe it is blasphemy. After all, changing the words of the Bible has the same effect. (Revelation 22:18-19)

What I am asserting is that if God wrote our DNA, then our DNA is relaying correct information. However, if we change our DNA, then we are changing the truth of God’s creation into a lie. We are choosing to change our very identity at a fundamental level. If we change our DNA, then whose children would we be? If Satan has been planning on how to have more children since Genesis 3, how far do you think he has gotten since then? More importantly, how far can we go and still be human? How far can we go and still be related to Adam or Jesus? Only the courts of heaven could ever know, and I don’t intend on finding out.

Blaspheming the Temple of the Holy Spirit

While it is common for Christians to teach that our bodies are “the temple of the Holy Spirit,” it is not common for them to realize that every measurement of that temple is determined by the information found in our DNA. Historically, changing the dimensions or any part of the temple, Holy of Holies or the “Ark of the Covenant” would all be considered blasphemy. Now consider that the other unforgivable sin is blaspheming the Holy Spirit, which essentially comes down to denying the ultimate truth, “Jesus is Lord.”
“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:16-18)
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. (Revelation 13:8; also see 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)
Vice versa, all of the people who worship the beast obviously do not believe Jesus is the Son of God. This is a deal-breaker for all of heaven. After all, three simple words, “Jesus is Lord,” are the most important and utterly undeniable facts of the universe. However, this information is still something that only the Holy Spirit (HS) can reveal to us. If we deny the truth of Jesus, it is difficult to understand how someone can be saved because they have repeatedly blasphemed the witness of the HS. Keep in mind just how important the Holy Spirit is in our lives because Jesus said that it was better for Him to leave so that the Holy Spirit could come and live inside of us.

If that Holy Spirit cannot come inside us, then we have blasphemed the HS’s message. On the other hand, it is through the power of the Holy Spirit that we can walk and talk with God every day in the garden of our hearts. However, no matter how much God loves us, not following instructions or correct information is what caused Adam and Eve to sin in the first place. The same is also true for Cain. Not following the instructions for the measurements of the temple could cause God to refuse to inhabit it. It is dangerous to destroy God’s temple because God promises to destroy anyone who dares to do that.
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. (1 Corinthians 3:16-17)
If God refused to inhabit a temple that was not what He instructed or designed, then why wouldn’t this also apply to our bodies? Can a Holy God inhabit an un-holy temple constructed in direct disobedience? Can a holy God inhabit the unholy seed or offspring of Satan who is created in Satan’s image? Remember, God hates sin, lies, and hate. So, how could God love or inhabit a being created based on lies, sin, and hate?

This is why I believe the first unforgivable sin is connected to the second unforgivable sin, which is the MOB. I believe the MOB is also blaspheming the Holy Spirit because it defiles or destroys the temple of the Holy Spirit and making the person uninhabitable. Vice versa, Satan also wants to make a person that he or his demons can inhabit because most of them are disembodied spirits, which means they are looking for a body to inhabit and to express themselves into the world.

This is why we cannot worship God and Satan. There is a choice that has to be made, and that is why people must choose the MOB for it to work at all. The problem is that if they do, then they have defiled the temple of God, which is their own body by corrupting the image that they were made in. They are also permanently changing who’s seed or offspring they are. At best, it would seem difficult to imagine how the HS could inhabit the children of Satan. Yet, this is the promise of trans-humanism, to remake mankind into a new image and one of our choosing.

Now consider the Covid “cause” and the effect that it is having on our governments. Now the thing that we have to take to let things go back to normal requires taking something that has never been proposed in human history. The genetic material in the form of messenger RNA is now sending new messages into our bodies and rewriting God’s instructions. Who in their right mind would want to do that, but it is happening right now because of the great deception? Unfortunately, both political parties are pushing it as the solution to the problem. The only difference is that some of them are saying it should be mandatory.

Here is an article that details recombinant DNA and CRISPR technology, and how we can incorporate new information into human beings to make them better.

Enter the Alien Agenda
As if I haven’t pushed the envelope enough, I am still going there because there is an obvious connection. Few are willing to talk about it, but I am going to point out how this phenomenon is manifesting some of the exact narratives of these articles. More importantly, why aren’t we talking about aliens? After all, more Americans now believe in aliens more than God. (see below) That statistic alone should be a strong indicator as to how the Anti-Christ might best present himself to the world as its true savior. So, how can we not talk about that? After all, the things we don’t talk about are the very things that the world only hears one side of the story.
https://entertainment.ie/trending/statistics-show-that-more-people-believe-in-ghosts-and-aliens-than-god-342325/
Not only is the TV show “Ancient Aliens” popular, but much of it can also be easily debunked. (see below) However, even some basic investigation of the alien hypothesis can yield some startling intersections with Biblical themes. For instance, there is a movie on amazon prime called, Extraordinary: The Seeding. Not only does this movie have multiple accounts of women being abducted by aliens and coming back pregnant, but the name of it is “The Seeding,” which is the same word our Bibles uses talking about what Satan will one day have.

These same women are abducted again before giving birth, and this time the baby is taken. Later, some of these women are abducted and met their children. Ok, so what does that sound like? This is almost the same scenario talked about in Genesis 6. The difference seems to be that they have learned a few things since then. Meaning, they don’t let the baby be born because that might make world news.

Whether we believe in alien abduction or not, they have several connection points with some of the supernatural things found in the Bible. One example is when angels helped Peter escape prison. Like the cuffs falling off, people can pass through other solid objects. Just like Peter’s guards, people can be paralyzed so they are helpless. The shocking thing is that the people in the UFO community teach that once an abduction starts, it cannot be stopped. But this isn’t true.

A man by the name of Joe Jordan, a MUFON certified investigator, has documented hundreds of cases where the name of Jesus stopped those aliens’ abductions in their tracks. Now, what does that sound like? It sounds like we should be teaching that from every pulpit in the country. Through this discovery, Joe not only became a Christian, but he now helps people see the connection between the alien agenda and demons. He also sees a connection between Satan’s desire to have a seed or modern Nephilim, and the alien agenda.
https://youtu.be/NuMajWp_EzA & https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOC7K3L86TM
But Joe Jordan is not the only one. Dr. David Jacobs is the author of “UFO Controversy in America,” “Secret Life: Firsthand Accounts of UFO Abductions,” and “The Threat.” Dr. Jacobs has been studying alien abductions for longer than anyone (30+ years). In an interview, Dr. Jacobs was asked what alien abductions have in common. He said it was their “obsession with genetic material.” When asked what he made of that he replied, they have their “own breeding program.” Now, what does that sound like? The only thing that stops these entities is the name of Jesus, and they are obsessed with genetic material probably because they have a breeding program.

Could this be why the world is going so crazy so fast? We always talk about how we are in spiritual warfare with spiritual powers and principalities, but could there be a literal seed of Satan already among us? Could this same seed be a way for disembodied demons to manifest themselves into our world and take up the age-old “War of the Seeds?” Again, I cannot say whether this is all true, but I can say that the alien phenomenon clearly has intersections with Biblical narratives like the “Days of Noah” and demonology.

The last thing I am going to mention about the alien agenda is something that Pastor Billy Crone has brought out in some of his alien studies that can be found on YouTube. Billy is a Baptist minister, but he came out of the new age movement. Consequently, he is familiar with remote viewing, astral projection, and out-of-body experiences. But one of my favorite sermons was about how aliens act like demons. Billy also does a great job at showing how many of the new age authors are channeling or remote writing for spirits who identify themselves as aliens.

Coincidentally, they are always from specific constellations that are historically occultic. This fact alone should make all of us consider the possibility that when the Abyss is opened, and the spirits who have been in prison are released, one of the obvious ways they may present themselves to the world is an alien race. Now that would certainly be quite the deception, especially when more people now believe in aliens than God.

The War of the Seeds
Just as God desires to have children, Satan also wants to do the same, but he needs them for a far more sinister purpose; to wage war against the children of God. Satan himself was a child of God and he wants to recruit us in his cause against God. But I also believe that Satan also wants to be the father and creator to a new category of beings. He can do this by remaking mankind into his image. This fundamental change is possible through trans-humanism and modern science.

If we consider the Bible to be true, then it is possible that the “war of the seeds” may be upon us just as it was in the “Days of Noah.” Unfortunately, it may be one of the major backdrops for the turmoil of the “end times.” Breakthroughs like CRISPR mean that people will be able to change their race or even create a new race of beings. I also believe that the current mRNA vaccines mark the beginning of genetic experimentation on the masses.

Unfortunately, the worldwide “cause” has blinded some people. Yet, none of this deception would be possible if we had not failed to see the connection of our body and our spirit. Our bodies are more than just our habitation (earthly house, tent, or tabernacle). (2 Corinthians 5:2) Our bodies and our DNA are why we look like God. (1 John 3:2) Dr. Michael Heiser summarizes much of the whole Bible into a drama surrounding God’s “divine family.” Dr. Heiser also calls us God’s “imagers,” meaning that we look exactly like God. This also makes sense because Jesus looks like us.

The Politically Correct Church
When we see Jesus face to face, we will look like Him and we will be like Him. (1 John 3:2) How would that meeting go if we didn’t look like Him? If DNA determines how we look, then how can anyone claim that overwriting (what God wrote) our natural RNA or possibly our DNA is somehow godly? This vaccine, by all appearances, is the start of changing what God wrote into our genes, which is why I believe this is the precursor to the MOB.

Consequently, we have no idea what kinds of doors we are opening up. There is little room to debate that we are not officially messing with the code of life, which is a form of playing God. Unfortunately, churches see this subject as a medical or political issue, so they are steering clear of it as if it will go away. But not all churches are being silent. Some are speaking truth, which is that something more than fishy is going on here.
Black leaders dare to tell the truth about vaccine depopulation GENOCIDE – https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-03-04-situation-update-mar-4th-black-leaders-tell-the-truth-vaccine-depopulation-genocide.html
There is a world-wide assault on all of our freedoms. But of all the freedoms we are losing, (speech, guns, family, marriage, boys, girls, to show our face, travel, work, liberty, and privacy), losing the rights to our own body would be the ultimate loss of freedom. Anything that comes against this right or even has the potential to change our DNA, should be avoided at all costs. One thing we know, there is a mark that is coming, but we don’t know exactly what it is except that it changes us in some way. Not only can we not be saved, but we worship the Anti-Christ whether we want to or not.

The only way we can be safe is to come out from among them. We can no longer afford to be neutral. We must defy our government and its mandates peacefully. Remember, Jesus was killed for many reasons, but one of them was political. How can we expect anything different in the end times? Our society has broken with its Christian heritage. Consequently, there is coming a day very soon, where people will no longer be able to believe what they see on TV or hear in the media and still be Christian. The false Covid narrative has already emptied our churches, and the next great “cause” will be even worse.
https://www.christianpost.com/news/fewer-churches-holding-in-person-services-than-did-last-summer.html
We who are mature in the Lord must begin to prepare those we can for this break with our society. We are now only a sub-culture or counter-culture. While we can still strive for peace, there is a war that is coming and we cannot shrink back because we are carrying the truth down to our DNA. We must continue to stand up for the Great Commission of our Lord. Just with one small change. Beware of the Mark of the Beast! Do not give up access to your body lightly. If we heed His commands, we have a promise from the Lord. He will be with us “always, even unto the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20)

I hope you will join me in the coming weeks for our final article. I believe it promises to be yet another eye-opening experience as we explore the mystery of what is hidden in our foreheads, and its connection to the MOB. This is only one of the great schemes of the Devil that we hope to expose in our next article. May God grant us all the strength to be a light on a hill and a lamp for those who are looking where to step in these difficult times.

If the Bible’s condemnation of an ancient race of giants and the supernatural entities who created them—in other words, the Nephilim and the “sons of God” from Genesis 6—was unique among the religious texts of the ancient world, you’d be right to be skeptical. But that happens not to be the case. Similar stories, told from slightly different perspectives, are attested in many of the cultures in the ancient Near East. Mesopotamians knew the Watchers as supernatural sages called apkallu. They were agents of the god Enki, lord of the abzu (“abyss”), who sent them into the world to deliver the gifts of civilization to humanity.

Despite this, the apkallu were considered potentially dangerous, capable of malicious witchcraft. An Assyrian exorcism text names two apkallus who angered gods and thus brought punishment on themselves and the land, and in a popular Mesopotamian text called the Epic of Erra, the chief deity Marduk tells of how he banished the apkallus to the abzu (after he caused the Flood!) and told them not to return to the earth. That’s exactly the punishment God decreed for the Watchers, likewise connected to the great deluge remembered for centuries across Mesopotamia.

Interestingly, the last four apkallus were described as partly human, and thus able to mate with human women, just like the Watchers and their offspring, the Nephilim.

The giants created by the lecherous Watchers were destroyed in the Flood of Noah. While the Bible doesn’t make this explicit, it’s implied in 1 Peter 3:18–20, where the apostle links the Flood to the angels who “formerly did not obey…in the days of Noah. The text in 1 Enoch, however, does specifically connect the Flood to the punishment of the Watchers and the evil acts of their children, the Nephilim.

Here’s the key to understanding why this is in the Bible at all: The neighbors of the ancient Hebrews, especially the Amorites who lived in and near Canaan, apparently believed that these mighty men of old were the ancestors of their kings. The spirits of the Nephilim were called rapha—Rephaim. What’s more, texts discovered at the Amorite kingdom of Ugarit, only translated within the last fifty years, indicate that the Amorites venerated these entities, summoned them through necromancy rituals, and believed that their kings joined their assembly after death.

While the Bible names tribes called Rephaim in the Transjordan, lands that later became the kingdoms of Ammon, Moab, and Edom, in the time of Abraham (around 1850 BC), it appears that by the Exodus the Rephaim were believed to be spirits of the venerated dead—except for Og, king of Bashan, who was called the last “of the remnant of the Rephaim.”

Here is where we differ with some Christian researchers: We do not believe the Rephaim and Anakim encountered by the Israelites were literal blood descendants of the pre-Flood Nephilim. They were tribes who worshiped their spirits in the deluded belief that those demons were their heroic royal ancestors. So, when 1 Chronicles 20:4–8 and 2 Samuel 21:15–20 refer to Goliath and other Philistine “descendants of the giants” (yĕlîdê hārāpâ), it’s in the spiritual sense. These “sons of Rapha” were an elite warrior cult dedicated to the mighty men who were of old.

Likewise, the Anakim, who are identified with the Rephaim in the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua, appear to have been a class of pagan warrior kings rather than supernaturally big. Contrary to the popular explanation that anak means “long-necked,” it actually derives from a Greek word, anax (“god,” “hero,” or “master of the house”). “Anakim,” then, was a title roughly meaning “lords” or “rulers,” and the “sons of Anak” were a warrior elite who ruled the hill country of Judah and Israel.

Veneration of the dead among the ancient Amorites was an integral part of their culture. A monthly ritual called kispum summoned dead ancestors to a ritual meal, which we’ll describe in detail in a future article. The kispum took on greater importance when it came to their dead kings; while the dead were dangerous if they were unhappy, dead royals were especially menacing. They posed a threat to the ruler himself, and that was a problem that could affect the entire kingdom. Bedeviled kings weren’t just a threat to their families; everyone in the kingdom suffered when a ruler was tormented by angry spirits.

The standard practice in the ancient Near East was to perform the kispum rite twice a month for kings, usually on the 15th and 30th. As with the family kispum, long-dead rulers had to be called to the meal by name. Forgetting the dead meant their spirits were unsettled and thus unpredictable. Proper performance of the ritual was key to maintaining the health and stability of the realm.

Several fascinating texts from Ugarit are especially relevant to our discussion. Around 1200 BC, just before its destruction by the so-called Sea Peoples, Ugarit crowned its last king. A ritual text designated KTU 1.161 by scholars suggests that the ill-fated Ammurapi III, who was probably killed when his city was overrun, was crowned with a necromancy rite that summoned the spirits of his royal ancestors, the Rephaim.

You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth, 

You are invoked, O council of the Didanu! 

Ulkn, the Raphi’, is summoned,

Trmn, the Raphi’, is summoned, 

Sdn-w-rdn is summoned, Ṯr ‘llmn is summoned,

the Rephaim of old are summoned!

You are summoned, O Rephaim of the earth,

You are invoked, O council of the Didanu!

There is no question that these Rephaim are the same group called by that name in the Bible.

Sheol beneath is stirred up to meet you when you come; it rouses the shades [rephaim] to greet you, all who were leaders of the earth; it raises from their thrones all who were kings of the nations. (Isaiah 14:9)

The “shades”—Rephaim—were “leaders of the earth” and “kings of the nations,” the same way they are described in the Ugaritic texts.

This appears to be a belief that extends back at least to the time of Abraham. A bone talisman dated to about 1750 BC found in the tomb of a king at Ebla, an ancient kingdom in northern Syria, depicting a scene that suggests three ranks in the hierarchy of the afterlife: A lower level for the human dead, a top level inhabited by the gods, and a middle level occupied by entities that probably represent the Rephaim. Scholars who have tried to interpret the symbols on the artifact believe the item was a guide for the spirit of the dead king on how to attain status among the venerated dead—the “men of renown,” as it were. Even the name “Rephaim” may originate with an Akkadian word that means something like “great ones.”

What ties this together into a cohesive package is a reference in the Ugaritic “Sacrifice of the Shades Liturgy” to the “council of the Didanu.” That shadowy group shares the name of an Amorite tribe from antiquity known and feared throughout the Near East, variously spelled Didanu, Ditanu, or Tidanu. The last Sumerian kings of Mesopotamia, the Third Dynasty of Ur, actually built a wall 175 miles long north of modern Baghdad that they dubbed the “Amorite Wall That Keeps Tidanu Away.”

Too bad for the Third Dynasty of Ur that it didn’t keep the Tidanu away. Within a century of the wall’s construction, Ur was overwhelmed by waves of invaders that included the Tidanu, savage Gutian tribesmen from the mountains to the northeast, and Elamites, from what is today northwestern Iran.

The key point is this: For centuries, Amorite kings from Babylon to Canaan traced their ancestry back to this Tidanu/Ditanu tribe. And modern scholars have concluded that the name of this tribe is the origin of the name given by the ancient Greeks to their old gods, the Titans.

Consider the evidence: We know that in the days of the judges in Israel, Amorite kings in what is now northern Syria aspired to become rapha and join the council of the Didanu after death, a religious belief that may have existed for more than a thousand years already by that time. The Rephaim were middle-tier deities, higher-ranking in the cosmic order than humans, but not at the level of the great gods like El, Baal, Asherah, and Astarte.

Like the Didanu, the Titans of the Greeks were supernatural inhabitants of the underworld who roamed the earth long ago, just like the apkallu of Babylon and the Watchers—the “sons of God” from Genesis 6—of the Hebrews. This is not a coincidence.

And it’s still relevant today. You see, the Rephaim Texts from ancient Ugarit call the Rephaim “warriors of Baal.” The mountain sacred to Baal is the rally point for the end-times army of Gog, the Antichrist—and Jesus identified Baal as Satan.

Veneration of the dead was not a quaint religious belief by primitive pagans who didn’t know any better. What we are unraveling here is an ancient plot by the infernal council to create a demonic army to assault the throne of God.

In the first part of this article, we have been debunking the Covid narrative and laying the groundwork to understand the ethical problems with vaccines. This part of the article will show us how vaccines may be a part of a larger deception. In the end, we will show there is a direct connection between the Covid agenda and the “Mark of the Beast” or MOB.

Before we get going too far, I want to say a few things to put my readers at ease. First, we are still living in the age of grace and there is still time to right the ship. All of salvation is still available to us, but it is time to wake up. It is also time for the church to stop being “Lukewarm” because the world is in travail and the nations are being shaken as we speak.

Second, I do not believe this supposed vaccine is the real MOB. But I do believe that this is (at best) a crime against humanity or (at worst) a precursor to the MOB. I will define what I mean by a precursor shortly. More importantly, before we are finished, I believe you will agree with me that something is afoot.

Third, there are some key components of this article that will require speculation on my part, because the Bible simply doesn’t tell us everything. There are gaping holes that must be filled in as we get closer to when the MOB is rolled out on humanity. However, what I can say is that by the time we get to part 3 and part 4 of these articles, I believe we will all be challenged with some new possibilities of how Satan plans on deceiving us all. So, please don’t get offended, we are just having a conversation about the “Brave New World” we are living in.
Lest Satan should get an advantage over us. For we are not ignorant of his devices. (2 Corinthians 2:11)

That being said, we have to go back and lay the groundwork for the basics of Satan’s mark to see what the issues are. So, let me ask you a question. What is Satan‘s ultimate goal? Most people would probably say that it is to steal our souls. Of course, we are all aware of how Satan has been accomplishing this goal for thousands of years. Yet, no matter what we have done in this life, and as long as we are alive, God can still conquer every sin through the gospel of Christ.

The next question is: does Satan come up with a way of changing that equation? Can Satan fool some of us into choosing to do something that keeps us from being saved? Remember, the fooling part is the normal operating procedure. After all, Adam and Eve were fooled into eating the forbidden fruit even though God forewarned them not to eat of it. Unfortunately, the Bible does say that Satan comes up with a way to nullify the gospel, but only if someone chooses to take the Mark of the Beast. This makes the “MOB” the ultimate deception and true agenda behind the greatest conspiracy Satan has ever crafted against God and His children.

The MOB doesn’t mean that Satan wins because God has told us about this situation over 2000 years ago. God is also not getting outsmarted because He has warned us, the same way He warned Adam and Eve ahead of time about what Satan was planning. The problem is an equation of disobedience versus deception. The other problem is the church isn’t hearing or sharing the warning. The question becomes, who are we trusting? Are we going to believe what God says or will we believe the cunning and crafty deception that Satan is about to spring upon the world? Even scarier is that most of this world has never heard this warning because the church doesn’t talk about the MOB anymore. In my heart, if this article accomplishes nothing more than getting us all talking about the MOB, then I believe that millions could be saved because of it.

Now, if you are wondering how the MOB could do something like this, join the club. I have also had the same question about exactly how “eating a fruit” could start this whole mess. But my understanding of God, heaven, His “divine council,” and the courts of heaven are more than limited enough to know that some things are above my pay grade. This is why I recommend learning to accept the explicit directions of God when it comes to this area instead of our own reasoning.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9)

Unfortunately, I have personally learned how disobedience of certain laws tends to get us in more trouble than we can fathom whether we know about these laws or not. Now is not the time to start trusting human reasoning, our governments, or technology. Now is the time to trust and obey the One who has brought us this far, and is fully able to complete what we have entrusted to Him, and take us home for eternity. (2 Timothy 1:12)

All of this is why I believe the MOB represents the greatest mystery in the entire Bible because we cannot be saved once we have taken it. It’s game over. The MOB is the one thing that we cannot repent of or change once we have taken it! Consequently, let’s just take a moment and review some of the key passages in the Bible talking about the MOB and why God gave us this stern warning.

Revelation 13:16-18 – And he causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.
Revelation 14:9-11 – And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or his hand, he also will drink the wine of God’s wrath, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever, and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”
Revelation 20:4 – Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also, I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
Revelation 19:20 – But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
Now would also be a good time to review the two articles I wrote on the Mark of the Beast for allpropastors.org.

There are not a lot of verses to go on. Consequently, while there are a few things we know about the Mark of the Beast, there is more we don’t know than we know. Here are a few of the things that stand out.
We know that everyone who gets the MOB is motivated by some unknown situation or “cause.” Every cause has an effect, and the effect of this cause is the MOB. The cause could produce anything from fear to pride or even envy. Either way, the whole situation produces the greatest peer pressure situation in human history. The cause appears to be universal and it drives everyone to its mark.
We know that there is a beast government that is coming that is going to need access to our bodies, and it will eventually be mandatory.
We know that they are going to mark us in some way. The mark could be spiritual or invisible for all we know. It could be that they are putting something in our bodies or on our bodies. Either way, this mark changes us in some way. This could be anything from a chip, to an invisible tattoo, a bar code, implanted nanotechnology, or even some kind of genetic marker.
There will be consequences to not taking this mark, but we have to choose it. At first, we will not be able to buy or sell. How democratic right? But later, some souls were beheaded for not taking this mark.
If we take this mark, then we cannot be saved, and God’s wrath is poured out on those who take it.
The mark has something to do with our right hand and/or our forehead.
There may be a connection of this mark to the number of man, which is the number 666.
The people who take this mark will also worship the beast and its image.
In the end, we will win! The beast and the false prophet will be thrown into the lake of fire. Those who did not take the mark will reign with Christ for 1000 years.

Our Attitude Moving Forward
While I have stated that I believe the MOB is Satan’s master plan, I have often wondered why he didn’t do it sooner. The best explanation I have come up with has to do with the grand “opening of the abyss” or a significant breakthrough in technology. If Satan hasn’t been given back the key to the abyss or if the technology was not sufficiently developed, then that would certainly explain why Satan has not been able to spring the MOB on humanity much earlier.

What we must keep in mind is that Bible prophecy is purposely cryptic because the purpose of prophecy is not to predict the future. After all, God doesn’t want to give away all of His plans to the Devil either. The purpose of Bible prophecy is to warn us ahead of time and to let us know that God is in complete control of the future. Studying Bible prophecy is a faith and trust-building experience that we have with God until we come to a point where we believe that God knows our future for all eternity.

This is why my cipher and my attitude for interpreting Bible prophecy are found in Luke 21:28. “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” It will be when we see these things happening that we wake up the sleeping virgins, and begin to sound the alarm that Jesus is coming soon. What I am saying in this article is that these things are “beginning” to happen. We cannot sound the alarm after something happens, we must sound the alarm at the beginning and not the end.

Satan’s Master Plan
Satan’s master plan is going to be executed by some type of “cause,” chaos, or problem. This turmoil will create the fear necessary to drive the masses to the solution the beast government has prescribed, which in this case is giving the government access to our bodies. What could cause an entire population to give up access to their bodies willingly? This is where the idea of “order out of chaos” can certainly explain some things. After all, it is the chaos that creates the fear necessary to create a “herd mentality,” which, in essence, funnels us towards the solution that is prescribed to solve the problem that they created.

What is this cause? For as long as I can remember, prophecy people have thought that a pandemic may very well be this infamous cause leading to the Mark of the Beast. Create the disease and then magically come up with the cure. This probable scenario is why most of the people in our family have typically never been vaccinated. Now 15 months into Covid-19, the entire narrative fits this idea perfectly. More importantly, people who have no risk of dying are lined up (in some cases fighting) to give access to their bodies to take an experimental vaccine that is for emergency use only. The question is, what will we line up for next?

In astonishing ways, the Covid narrative has accomplished what no other narrative ever has. It has produced a world-wide phenomenon that could make Satan‘s master plan a reality. Satan may now have the access to our bodies that he needs to administer the MOB, and everyone seems to be in on it. This is why I don’t trust any government or politicians. In case you haven’t studied world history, every government has done to the people what it was designed to protect them against. The only one I do trust in is God, and God has warned me about situations like these.

More importantly, my body is His temple, and I will not allow anyone to have access to it without my full consent, and for very good reason. The idea that our government should have access to our bodies, to inject whatever it wants, whenever it wants, is the ultimate loss of personal freedom. But as it looks, those who oppose this agenda are made out to be some kind of crazy conspiracy theorists or someone so ignorant that they need to be sent to some kind of re-education (concentration) camp.

The Threat
The next thing we know about the MOB is that it will become mandatory. Then there is the curious ultimatum if we do not comply with the mandate. They could’ve just said, “do this, or we kill you.” They could just hold us all down and force it on us, but they don’t. Why?? Interestingly enough, taking this mark has some kind of unwritten rule that it must be our choice, and even the beast government follows this rule.

I could never understand why they don’t just brand us. Why do they need us to choose it? Almost like they are democratic or something. Almost like they realize that every person has to choose it for it to work. Why? Because Satan can’t take our soul unless we choose to give it. That seems to be the unwritten rule that even this master plan of Satan still has to follow.

While they can’t force us to take it, they can lie, manipulate, deceive, and threaten us with all kinds of horrible consequences. Biden hadn’t even become president yet when suddenly both he and Dr. Fauci started saying that mandatory vaccinations were now on the table. The penalty for not taking the vaccine is that you will not be allowed to work. Already we have seen the New York Bar pass a mandatory vaccination recommendation with no exceptions to be given. This means this vaccination is mandatory even if people object to it for “religious, philosophical or personal reasons.”
https://www.law.com/newyorklawjournal/2020/11/07/state-bar-passes-mandatory-covid-19-vaccination-recommendation/?slreturn=20210102115233
The mandate may pass on to lawyers first, but certainly, it could also be enforced on all health care workers next. The penalty would mean that professionals could lose their license to work. This means that we would no longer have any Christian lawyers or doctors. Already they are saying that there will be a travel ban, and many people travel for work. They too would have to take the MOB or lose their job. If you lose your job or cannot work, then you are not being “allowed to buy or sell.” This means that the penalty that is being proposed for defying the Covid narrative is “at least” partially or “at best” exactly the same as the penalty being described for not taking the Mark of the Beast.

All of this is very unlikely to be a coincidence. This is why my prophetic radar has gone off and I believe it is time to blow the alarm because things are starting to line up. Clearly, there is some kind of connection between this current narrative and Satan’s final narrative because it seems to be a world-wide effort to enforce this final part of the Covid agenda, which is access to our bodies for something that isn’t even a vaccine. As Christians, we must resist these kinds of controls, manipulations, and nefarious agendas. However, as we learned from scripture, this soft-sell side of the mandate will eventually become a hard sell. Meaning, later in the tribulation, many people will be beheaded because they did not take the MOB. (Revelations 20:4)

So, here is what we have so far. We have a worldwide pandemic that isn’t killing more people than last year in our country even in the at-risk group. We have our government that now has miraculously come up with a cure. Now they are saying we can’t go back to normal until we all take it. The problem is that we have to give them access to our bodies to do it. But the vaccine isn’t a vaccine (as we will see) and it isn’t even FDA approved.

Not only that, but it is labeled for emergency use, which means it’s experimental. Now, remember, they are manipulating us all to do this even if we have no actual risk of dying from Covid. If most of us are only at risk of being mildly sick for a few days, then why should any of us take this? Why are they pushing this so hard?

All of this is why my MOB alarm has gone off, and I will not remain silent any longer. The rise of a systemic cause that has been pushing 24/7 fear for over a year, along with the distinct fulfillment of key components of the MOB scenario should have all of us on alert. Still, there remains only one final question that needs to be answered. Just what is the MOB, and how could this vaccine be connected to it?

Warning: this is the part of the article where we begin some speculation to ask ourselves, “is something prophetic happening or not?”

What Is the Mark?
Before I get into the connections of the MOB, and the current Covid vaccine, I want to explore the MOB, in general, to see if we can narrow things down just a bit. The problem is that this is tough to do. For most of us, the idea of speculation sounds pointless, but this is what we are forced to do. When the Bible tells us very little, but then also tells us this is the one sin the gospel can’t redeem, then God is forcing us to speculate heavily.

In fact, this mark may very well be the greatest mystery of the Bible. This is why the identity of the MOB is extremely important, and if we could get ahead of this, millions could be saved. Consequently, please take the rest of this article with a grain of salt because there is going to be some speculation on my part, but I believe it will be worth it.

I am not trying to say that I know what the MOB is, but I am also pointing out that you probably don’t either. Nonetheless, here are some of my initial thoughts on what we could be talking about. The idea that we cannot buy or sell hints that the MOB is not just some kind of physical mark or some sort of branding or tattoo. This mark also seems to be able to identify us, as well as virtually keep track of our bank accounts.

Normally money in our hands would allow us to at least buy something. This is true for most of history. However, in this case, the mark itself allows us to buy or sell, which means it may know how much money we have, and can even add or deduct from our accounts. What does that sound like? Our chipped visa cards.

On the other hand, not being able to sell sounds like we don’t have a license to sell our goods or our services. This would mean that the government has placed some kind of sanctions specifically against us because we won’t take the mark. The MOB also seems to be used everywhere goods and services are sold. So, it would seem that all the other buyers and sellers use this system. These components could easily be accomplished by implanting some kind of RFID chip, nanotechnology, or other special bio-identifiable ingredients that not only track us virtually but also verify the money in our accounts. It could also verify that we have taken the vaccines they have prescribed.

Unfortunately, even my pre-conceived ideas about the MOB could end up being part of the deception if I am wrong. This is why we do not assume anything. The closer we get to the actual mark, the closer we will be to knowing what the MOB is. The point is that none of us should get confused by thinking we actually know exactly what the MOB is. It doesn’t have to be a chip or a bar code. Those are so yesterday, but they do have to have access to our bodies. The problem is there may be no visible mark when they are done marking us and that alone may be putting us on the wrong trail. Needing access to our bodies proves that there has to be a physical component to it, but clearly, there is also a grave spiritual outcome.

Yet, the biggest problem I run into when I talk to people about the MOB is that they think it will be obvious. They don’t believe there will be any deception surrounding the MOB. I hope they are right. Unfortunately, I see no Biblical case to be made that during the greatest deception in human history, there will be absolutely no deception surrounding the one thing that will accomplish Satan’s ultimate goal. I’m sorry, but I just don’t believe the MOB will be labeled “Mark of the Beast,” but that is literally how many Christians I have talked to feel.

Again, I hope they are right, but the purpose of the rest of these articles is to question everything so that we are not deceived. I realize that I might be describing a worst-case scenario. But my default philosophy on things like this is as follows: “hope for the best and plan for the worst.” That being said, the truth between the best case and the worst case may lie somewhere in the middle. The good news is that you get to decide what that is.

Another curious thing that has struck me about the verses above is it seems only people who worship the beast and his image are those who took his mark. (Revelations 19:20) This correlation is going to be important later, but it has challenged some of the order by which I see end-times events unfolding. For example, we keep thinking that it is the beast government, and the Anti-Christ (AC) that bring about the MOB, but what if it is the other way around? What if the precursors to the MOB change us in some way. These changes could then be partially responsible for the formation of the beast government and the worship of the AC?

In fact, what could be in a mark that would cause modern people to worship anyone? How did they not only lose their souls but also their minds as well? Yet, what is coming is something that seems to go all together. The mark is entangled or connected to the other developments in the last days of human history. It seems probable that the beast government is the one that institutes the final version of the MOB, but is there earlier versions that lay the groundwork for it? Reversing this order means that the one-world government and the AC rise after the release of the precursors to the MOB. Keep in mind, I am not saying that this is the case, but it is food for thought. And when we are finished, you will understand why I might give this scenario some credence.

Like the rapture, we don’t know the timing of the MOB for a certainty. This mark or its precursors may come before the tribulation? Yet, many people who study Bible prophecy believe the MOB will come during the tribulation and before the rapture. Don’t get me wrong, I hope that they are right, but what if they are wrong? What if the precursors or protocols of the MOB are part of what changes us in some way, thereby hastening all of the other end-time events?

Allowing some fluidity to end-time events is critical so that we do not lock ourselves into some kind of paradigm, and end up missing the most crucial elements. For myself, the two most important events in the end times are the opening of the abyss and the advent of the MOB, and I believe the two are connected as we will soon see. Obviously, many other key end-time components are still in their preliminary stages and this appears to be true of the MOB.

One of these final ingredients to the “end times” is the “Beast” government of Revelation or “Divided Kingdom” of Daniel. I believe this government is already here as well, just not in its final form. This is what I mean by a pre-curser. In my other articles, I have talked about how the United Nations will probably become the beast government once it is empowered. After all, the UN has divided the world into ten regions, just like the ten horns of the beast government found in Revelations 12, 13, and 17, and the ten toes of the “divided kingdom” found in the second chapter of Daniel.

It stands to reasons, that if we see some of the end times world stage beginning to take shape, then why is it impossible that the MOB is also not starting to take shape in at least a preliminary form? When I say the precursor or preliminary form, I mean this may be the model T version of the MOB. Remember, the first rocket we built did not get someone on the moon, and this may be true of the MOB. But before we are through, it will be hard to deny that something just went up in the air.

This precursor may be nothing more than a template getting us in the habit of complying with the mandates of our governments and their sudden need for access to our bodies. However, just because this isn’t the MOB doesn’t mean it isn’t a crime against humanity or that it doesn’t do anything. It could be “one small step for mankind” before the giant leap that causes us to lose our humanity. If the MOB is technology-related, then keep in mind virtually no technology has ever rolled out in its perfected state. Just implementing these mandates could allow them to strip every Christian of their job or profession, effectively removing them from power and influence in our society.

Another question I have is, why isn’t the MOB considered the pinnacle of Satan’s deception since it accomplishes his ultimate goal, which is obtaining the soul of everyone who takes it? At that point, isn’t forming a beast kingdom, taking complete control, and being worshiped just formalities after that? For my money, not recognizing the rise of the one world “beast” government, and its charismatic leader (the AC) is like missing the advent of both the Roman Empire and Caesar at the same time. Definitely hard to do. This is why identifying the MOB is the puzzle within the puzzle piece.

Nonetheless, I believe the precedent we can set for Christians is that we should be wary of world-wide “causes” or dilemmas that allow big governments and their leaders to mandate their need to have access to our bodies in any way. The MOB is coming, and with it, I believe there is a fundamental change in how we are going to have to preach the gospel.

The MOB is the Unforgivable Sin
Why did I say that the MOB will change the gospel we are called to preach? The answer is that the Bible clearly says that if you take the MOB, then you cannot be saved. Suddenly, the gospel doesn’t work. What Jesus did on the cross was previously able to redeem all the sins of all humanity. Yet, for some reason, salvation no longer applies to them. What could possibly do something like this? What has changed so drastically?

Clearly, the Bible is saying that if you cannot be saved once you take the Mark of the beast it is also saying that the gospel will not work for them. In other words, in the “end-times” the gospel we preach must have a new component. Not just repentance, but also being left unmarked and unchanged. Consequently, we must begin to preach against the MOB. Otherwise, we could soon be in a situation where the gospel will not work. What I am trying to say is that the game has changed. We may still be playing football, but Satan has just driven a tank out onto the field.

The idea that the MOB destroys the ability of the gospel to save people is shocking. Especially when previously, no matter what a human does in his lifetime, God can still redeem him if he repents and turns to Christ. But there is one exception to this, and that is something called “blaspheming the Holy Spirit.” Later we will explore if there is a connection between the MOB and blaspheming the Holy Spirit.
“Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”— because they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.” (Mark 3:28-30)
Remember, all that is needed for the power of the gospel to work is for us to confirm the testimony of Christ, and repent. This is how our spirit bears witness with the Holy Spirit to bring us into alinement with Him. Now the H.S. can begin to intercede for us. In the process, we receive a new revelation of our citizenship in heaven, and all because we have a new relationship with God Himself. Exactly, what could thwart this?

Again, technology is one of the best explanations of why Satan doesn’t pull out this trump card much earlier. Consequently, we will be discussing a lot of technology in the next few phases of this article. Maybe the MOB just wasn’t possible before this point in human history. One of the last things that I will say about the imminent need for preaching about the MOB has to do with the rapture. Just because some of us will be gone, at some point in time, does not mean that there will be no one left behind. This probably means billions of people. What we preach now will be all they have to go on.

Even the timing of the rapture is not 100% in stone for most of us. Yet, no one has ever told us that we could all one day be in a situation where we have to say no to something that isn’t even labeled “Mark of the Beast.” These issues in timing could be setting people up for failure. Again, part of my premise is there could be more deception about the MOB than anything else in history. Consequences could be grave, as many will be forced to have to give up their lives or at least their ability to buy and sell, in order to avoid this mark. This is the kind of information that God wants us to get out ahead of time so that fewer people will perish.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as My priests. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. (Hosea 4:6)
The end-times represent some of the greatest peer pressure situations in history, and we need to prepare as many people as possible for it. My favorite strategy for dealing with peer pressure is given by Dr. James Dobson. Dr. Dobson lays out a situation that most of us have already been through. We get into a car where everyone is smoking, drinking, or taking drugs. Dr. Dobson says that your child will take whatever it is unless two things have already happened. First, he has been told that one day he will be offered one of these things. Second, the child must have decided ahead of time what they will say when that happens. Today, it is not a matter of if.

This is also true for the MOB and depending on the timing of the rapture. I realize the issue is complicated, complex, and even politically charged, but we have to address the elephant in the room. Taking or not taking this supposed vaccine or any vaccine in the future has the potential to have spiritual implications. These are the Biblical facts. We don’t have to be dogmatic about when, where, and how, but the basics of the scenario we are all going through with the Covid narrative are strikingly similar to details surrounding the MOB found in our Bibles.

Remember, talking about this doesn’t mean we are forcing people to not take a vaccine. In a free and open society, we should all be allowed to have conversations like this without everyone getting offended, and leaving the church. After all, there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ. At the same time, ignoring that there is a new “cause” in the world, and the fear effect that it has had is not something we can ignore much longer. After all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave are not being allowed to go to church either.

It also so happens that they are being asked to roll up their sleeves and give access to their bodies by their governments. Now mandates are coming into play with the exact kind of threats that the Bible warned us about. Isn’t this, in and of itself, enough for us to have a conversation with our families, our friends, and our congregations about how scripture is happening as we speak.

I realize this is a lot, but we are only getting started. Next week, we will reveal even more, and it will be explosive as we examine the possibilities of what the MOB or its precursors really could be. There are still many more reasons why we need to question the Covid narrative, as well as, both the current and any future supposed vaccines. No matter what, our attitude and our mantra should be, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7) If we pray and cast our cares upon the Lord, God will give us the peace we need to look at the situation through spiritual eyes; knowing that once again “God is fully in control.”

By Ron Goldberg
February 26, 2021 is the Feast of Purim which is a celebration of what God did for His people Israel and is recorded in the Book of Esther.
The Book of Esther begins by telling us that Queen Vashti refused to go to the King’s Palace to be paraded before a crowd of drunken men. The King was so mad at her that Vashti was not allowed to ever come into the presence of the King again, and her royal position (of being the Queen) was to be given to another woman “who is more worthy than she.”
A Beauty Pageant was planned to find a new bride for the King, and a new Queen for the land. In preparation for the Beauty Pageant Hegai was placed in charge of the women who entered the Beauty Pageant. Right away Esther pleased Hegai and found favor with him so he quickly provided her with cosmetics and food, gave her seven choice female attendants from the king’s palace, and a VIP Pass that allowed her to go to the best place in the harem. Esther received favor from Hegai which enabled her to enjoy benefits that other ladies did not have. This preferential treatment made it possible for her to win the Beauty Pageant and become the Queen.
In the future Haman plotted to kill all the Jewish people. No one in the Palace knew that Esther was Jewish, but if anyone found out, her life would be at risk as well. Mordecai (Esther’s cousin) told her she needed to ask her husband (the King) for help and protection. Esther realized that she needed the King’s help, but no person could go to the king in the inner courtyard, if they were not summoned. If someone walked into his courtyard, he or she would be put to death; and this included his wife, Queen Esther. But fortunately there was one way to avoid death. If the king extended the golden scepter that person would live.
Esther knew the urgency and importance of the moment so she had Mordecai get all the Jews in Susa to fast with her for three days. After the three days of fasting (which probably included prayer as well) Esther would visit her husband.
When Esther entered the courtyard the king extended the golden scepter to her so that she could live. She obtained favor, or a VIP Pass to join the King in his courtyard. Esther then asked the King if she could hold a private banquet for the two of them and Haman.
While at the banquet Queen Esther said to the King, “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me as my request, and my people as my wish; for we have been sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, killed, and eliminated [by this man Haman].”
Once again Esther received favor, or a VIP Pass from the King. This special act of kindness allowed her, and all the Jewish people to live. Most of us will never receive a VIP Pass to enter the Royal Palace, but we all will have times that we need to receive favor to accomplish a specific task, and possibly to keep our life.
God is no respecter of persons; everyone who belongs to Him is His favorite. God is also the same yesterday, today and forever. He gave Esther VIP Passes when she needed them, and He will offer favor to you as well. Stay close to God, and when the need arises, ask God for your VIP Pass.

The Mighty Men Who Were of Old

Once upon a time, giants roamed the earth.
That sounds like the beginning of a fairy tale. Most Christians have never been taught that a similar story is told in the Book of Genesis, and in very similar language: “The Nephilim (or giants) were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.”
Pastors, priests, and Sunday school teachers tend to skip the first four verses of Genesis 6 and go right to the story of Noah because—well, the verses are weird. They contradict the scientific consensus. They’re hard to understand.
Please remember this: God didn’t inspire the prophets and apostles to write filler. Moses was not assigned a minimum word count. If it’s in the Bible, it’s relevant—and if it’s weird, it’s important.
The reason we’re writing this book is that it’s become clear to us that the episode described in Genesis 6:1–4, and expanded upon in the non-canonical Book of 1 Enoch, is far more important to human history and biblical theology than we realized.
We are Bible-believing, blood-bought Christians, so let’s put to bed right now any concerns you might have that this book is going off the theological rails to add something to the salvation story. If you don’t accept the evidence we’ll present here, that’s fine; as long as we agree that salvation comes only through grace by faith in Jesus Christ, we’re good. The purpose of this study is to show you how viciously and for how long the Fallen have been waging war against our Creator. Their ultimate objectives are control of God’s mount of assembly, Zion, and authority over your eternal soul.
So, what role did the giants play in the biblical narrative?
First, we need to establish that the children of human women to the “sons of God” were literally angel-human hybrids. This is consistent with similar stories from the ancient world of gods commingling with humans to produce demigods such as Gilgamesh, who claimed to be two-thirds god and one-third human, and Hercules, the son of Zeus by the mortal woman Alcmene.
Obviously, researchers can’t produce DNA from pre-Flood human remains that will support this theory. However, it’s worth noting that for all of the faith placed by science in Darwinian evolution, only two hundred specimens of “pre-human” fossils have ever been found. If humanity has been around for ten thousand years, where are all the skeletons? But we digress.
It’s important to note that the phrase translated “sons of God” in the Old Testament, Hebrew bǝnê hāʾĕlōhîm, always means supernatural beings—angels, if you like. It does not refer to human men.
Yes, there are references in the New Testament to “sons of God” that do mean humans, but those passages are translated from Greek into English, and the context is different. The arc of history is all about restoring humanity to the garden, like the prodigal son returning home and being restored to the family as a co-heir. Someday, we will once again be “sons (and daughters)” of God in the Old Testament sense. That’s why Jesus went to the cross.
At the risk of beating a horse that’s already on life support, let me repeat: “Sons of God” in Genesis 6:4 refers to spirit beings, supernatural entities who rebelled against the Father—fallen angels who spawned an evil race of giants mingling the bloodlines of angels with humans. The “sons of God” were not evil human rulers or men from the line of Cain, or any other naturalistic explanation that’s been put forward since Augustine decided he couldn’t believe it in the early fifth century AD. Casting the “sons of God” as evil human men simply ignores the linguistic and cultural foundation of the Book of Genesis. To interpret the Nephilim as fully human means mistranslating the Hebrew and ignoring the way the very same phrase was used by the cultures around ancient Israel that spoke and wrote similar languages.
Besides, the apostles believed it. And we dare say their theology teacher was better than ours.
For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority. (2 Peter 2:4–10)
The only place in Scripture where we know of angels who sinned (Satan excluded) is Genesis 6. By connecting the rebellious angels to Sodom and Gomorrah, Peter made it clear that the sin of the angels was sexual—a point he reinforced in verse 10. Like the “angels who sinned,” the wicked would be kept under punishment until the Judgment—“especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority,” exactly the sin of the sons of God in Genesis 6.
The apostle Jude was even more explicit:
And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day—just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire. (Jude 6–7, emphasis added)
It could not be clearer: By connecting Genesis 6 to the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah, Jude made it clear that the sin of the angels was sexual. (It also indicates that the sin of Sodom wasn’t just homosexuality; it was the desire to cross the boundary between species. Physical relations between angel and human was just as “unnatural” as between human and animal.)
Interestingly, just a few verses later, Jude quotes the Book of 1 Enoch, which suggests that we might learn something from Enoch even though it’s not in the Bible.
When the sons of men had multiplied, in those days, beautiful and comely daughters were born to them. And the watchers, the sons of heaven, saw them and desired them. And they said to one another, “Come, let us choose for ourselves wives from the daughters of men, and let us beget children for ourselves.”…
These and all the others with them took for themselves wives from among them such as they chose. And they began to go in to them, and to defile themselves through them, and to teach them sorcery and charms, and to reveal to them the cutting of roots and plants. And they conceived from them and bore to them great giants. And the giants begot Nephilim, and to the Nephilim were born Elioud [“gods of glory”]. And they were growing in accordance with their greatness. They were devouring the labor of all the sons of men, and men were not able to supply them. And the giants began to kill men and to devour them. And they began to sin against the birds and beasts and creeping things and the fish, and to devour one another’s flesh. And they drank the blood.
Dr. Michael Heiser makes a convincing case in his book Reversing Hermon that a key aspect of the mission of Jesus was to reverse the evil of the Watchers. It’s obvious in 1 Enoch that the impact of the Watchers went well beyond producing monstrous hybrid offspring. Besides sorcery and potions, the fallen angels of the Hermon rebellion taught humanity the arts of divination, cosmetic enhancement, metalworking, fashioning weapons, making “hate-inducing charms,” and “the eternal mysteries that are in heaven,” which clearly were things man was not meant to know. In short, because of the forbidden knowledge passed from the Watchers to humans, the earth became filled with sex and violence.
For this, as Peter noted, God imprisoned the rebels in the abyss. While most English Bibles translate 2 Peter 2:4 as “cast them into hell,” the Greek word, tartaroō, literally means “thrust down to Tartarus.” That’s different from Hades, the word most commonly used to designate the underworld home of the evil dead. In Greek cosmology, Tartarus was as far below Hades as the earth is below heaven. It was a special prison reserved for supernatural threats to the divine order—basically, Hell for supernatural beings.
This is the only place in the New Testament where tartaroō is used, which means it’s important. It referred to a unique event, but one with which Peter’s readers were obviously familiar—the famous story of the Watchers who attempted to corrupt humanity physically and spiritually.

'Tis the season many people declare: "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham/A Great Miracle
Happened There" in Jerusalem. They will do this as they celebrate Chanukah; a
time to remember when God performed a miracle with oil. When the Maccabees
regained control of the Temple in Jerusalem, they only had enough sacred, ritual oil
which should have lasted 1 day. But a great miracle happened there, and the oil
lasted for 8 days until the special oil was ready.
During this season many people also declare: "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham/A Great
Miracle Happened There" in Bethlehem. They will do this as they celebrate the
virgin birth of the Jewish Messiah. God came to earth, lived in flesh or a body and
many people take time to celebrate this in December.

'Tis the season when many people remember these 2 great miracles which happened there, in Israel.
Miracle:
1. an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs
2. wonderful event that is believed to be caused by the power of God
We all have days when we need a miracle. As you see above a miracle is a time when God
intervenes in our lives to do something out of the ordinary for us. He does things that are beyond
ordinary and are not possible by human ability or knowlegde, or possible within the time frame
allotted. When we find ourselves in a time of need, we need to ask God to demonstrate His power
and do what no person can do.
(Malachi 3:6) “I am the Lord, and I do not change.”
(Hebrews 13:8) Yeshua Messiah is the same yesterday and today and forever.
The same God who did the miracles in the past still lives today and has not changed. Anything and
everything He did in the past He can do today. God can perform miracles any day they are needed.
We don’t have to wait until December to seek God for a miracle. But God knows how much we all
need Him to intervene in our lives so He sets aside time every year for us to remember that He is a
God who performs miracles.
As you take time this season to remember the great miracles God did for us in the past, remember
that God loves you as much as He loves the people He provided miracles for years ago, and that He
is not limited to performing miracles in Israel. He can perform a
miracle for you wherever you are, and whenever you have a need.
So when your need for a miracle arises, pray in faith, asking God for
your miracle. Pray expecting that soon you will declare: "Nes Gadol
Hayah Poh/A Great Miracle Happened Here." And if this short
message encouraged you to seek your miracle, send me an email to
either:
 Pray with you for your miracle
 Declare: "Nes Gadol Hayah Sham/A Great Miracle Happened
Here" when God grants your miracle so I can rejoice with you.
