This question is one of the most debated topics when it comes to religious artifacts there is. I won’t give details as to its known history. You can research that for yourselves. I will only bring up two points that are uncontestable that prove the Shroud of Turin was indeed Christ’s burial cloth. One, there are images in the shroud as well as pollen from a flower only found in Israel, which conclusively state the shroud originated in Israel. The flower is called the Zygophalum Dumosum. Despite historians bringing up for decades where they originally found, or refound as the case may be, the shroud, botanists now can conclude these floral imprints and pollen come only from Israel. Secondly, and most importantly, what caused the image? See, God clouds the judgment of believers and nonbelievers alike, so this question has escaped at least most of them. If man caused this image, wouldn’t we with our modern computerized scanners detect paint or something that made the image? The shroud is one of the most, if not the most scrutinized artifact out there, so what produced the image? The answer is something obvious and one not able to be accepted by many, yet they will never have an explanation.
While many so-called geniuses today basically claim that evolution is a proven fact, and even have many people of faith concede this, here are some questions that thoroughly disprove the theory of evolution. These questions will stand up to the scrutiny of any possible contention by elitist intellectuals. This will be short and sweet.
1. Why are there still dogs and cats? Why are there many species lower on the evolutionary scale still in existence? We’ve evolved from them, right? So why do they still exist? I can see maybe a couple of species just below us still hanging around, but there are still rodents around, if you simply stick with this class of species. If you include insects, there are well more than a million different types of insect alone.
2. Where are our ancestors between us and monkeys? I don’t see any. If we have evolved from them, but there are still many species of monkeys, then where are our ancestors? If some great environmental cataclysm happened that wiped them out, then again why are there still monkeys? Didn’t our ancestors evolve from monkeys? So weren’t they better equipped to deal with an environmental crisis than monkeys were?
3. How does a species decide that it needed eyes to see, then have the ability to grow them? How does any species decide it needed a certain bodypart and grow it?
4. Why would a species decide it didn’t need to fly anymore? Wouldn’t flying for a land animal be the ultimate ability to help for survival? So why would land animals get rid of that ability? Men have looked to fly for millennia and need machines to do so today, so why would a species higher up the evolutionary chart than birds get rid of the ability to fly?
5. When have we witnessed one species give birth to a different species? Of the millions of different species there are on earth, we have witnessed no species give life to a different species. We’ve been looking for almost two hundred years since Darwin, and we haven’t witnessed one change in species? A fire ant will only have fire ants and goldfish will only have goldfish. A robin will only have robins and humans will only have humans.
These questions can be elaborated with more examples and reasoning, but I’ll leave that up to you. Do not give in to scientists and the idea that if you oppose them that you aren’t intelligent. Don’t let this idea that pervades our society keep you from opposing things you know scientists are wrong about. Scientists are constantly wrong, and today’s scientists will be tomorrow’s fools. It has always been that way. Time is the great truth decipherer and time will reveal all things. Even God uses time.
There is an ordinance in Leviticus chapter sixteen that says the people of Israel shall for atonement use two goats: one for sacrifice and the other as the scapegoat to run free into the desert to carry away the sins of Israel. The original Hebrew word for scapegoat was “azazel”, which means “goat for escape”. Azazel was also an angel that sinned greatly in the time of Jared. Genesis chapter six speaks of angels lusting after human women and marrying them, and even had children with them. These angels also taught humans to sin greatly, according to the book of Enoch, a genuine book of the Bible that isn’t included in most Bibles. Azazel was among these angels. One of the leaders, in fact. Azazel was not another name for Satan, as some believe. His fall came well after Satan’s, and they fell in two completely different ways. Satan wanted to become God while Azazel conspired to marry women and taught men to sin.
The scapegoat spoken of in Leviticus 16 was for Azazel, the fallen angel. In the book of Enoch the prophet, chapter ten verse eight, God said to ascribe all sin to him. This is done through the release of the scapegoat. One of the two goats, chosen by drawing lots, Aaron, and then later his descendants, was to put his hands upon the head of the scapegoat and confess all the sins of Israel to transfer them to it and release it away from the people (Leviticus 16:20-22).
There are ways to find the book of Enoch and I highly recommend it. It is easily one of the most fascinating books of the Bible, and Enoch was one very special prophet. One of two people in history who hasn’t experienced death (Genesis 5:21-24).
This is a common question people have. The answer lies in the Old Testament, at least what was the age of accountability. In Exodus 30:14 and 38:26, it says all men twenty and above shall make an offering to the Lord. In Numbers chapter one, all males from twenty and upward and were healthy were to be gathered for war. In Numbers 14:29 lies the most convincing evidence that twenty was the accountable age. Those who were twenty and above who murmured against God were held accountable and would die off in the wilderness instead of entering the land He promised to their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Has He increased the age of accountability since many twenty year olds seem like children? Who knows? I wouldn’t count on it.
I am very disheartened on behalf of Bruce Jenner for the situation he has gotten himself into. I have to stress the words “gotten himself into”. Bruce’s quest to become a woman is a sinful quest, despite his belief that God did this to him to test him. Bruce said that God gave him some good qualities at his conception, but decided to give him the soul of a woman in order to test him. If this was God testing him, then how does he pass it? It always astonishes me what people are willing to tell themselves to make them look right morally, and even with God specifically. The soul existed before the flesh, so God knows precisely what soul to put into what flesh. God has not ever, nor would ever put the soul of a woman into the flesh of a man, or vice versa. God also makes no mistakes, and to accuse Him of such is a serious misunderstanding at who makes the mistakes.
Bruce said he has had these issues since he was a child. While I do believe that, and even sympathize, what issues he has had as a child are not God’s making. Most likely it had to do with one or both of his parents. That is where he would as a child gotten his influence from.
What can you say to a person who has told themselves that God, if they believe in Him, has put their soul into the wrong body and it’s fine by Him to correct His mistake? Not much. Jenner basically has told himself he is a lesbian trapped in a man’s body, since he has said he is attracted to women only. Most who say they are transgendered are attracted to the same gender. Here are some things written in the Bible along the lines of this subject. Leviticus 18:22 says “You (men) shall not lie with man as with a woman, it is an abomination.” That doesn’t sound like God would change with the times. God saying it is an abomination means it would always be an abomination. Paul reiterated this in 1st Corinthians 6:9-10, and he said this after Jesus lived. Despite misguided individuals who say Jesus never spoke against homosexuality, that doesn’t mean Jesus proclaimed it lawful. Jesus did say that it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one dot of the law to fail. Well, Leviticus 18:22 is part of the law.
If one is asked, having their soul on the line, “Would God be okay with me changing genders?”, would they really answer “Yes”? Bruce has told himself that. I don’t recognize Bruce’s God. I recognize the God I’ve read and studied about-Old and New Testaments. I don’t turn Him or His Son into things they are not to suit my sinful lifestyle. We can kid ourselves about Him, but God will not be fooled (true translation of Galatians 6:7), so no matter how we twist and turn immorality into morality in our minds, we cannot fool Him.
I feel sorry for Bruce Jenner and anyone who is suffering these things. I really do. I pray they find their strength and turn away not just from doing incredibly sinful things, but to stop thinking God consents. If you find Him, and I mean truly find Him, He will remove your suffering. You have to make the first step, though. Why would God extend a hand while you recoil yours? To tell yourself doing something so sinful is not sinful, you have recoiled your hand from Him.
Of all the things I have written, this post might be the most insightful. There is a lord of this age, and it isn’t our Lord Jesus Christ. It is Satan that is the power and ruler of this age. Paul made this clear several times in his epistles. Satan’s children will serve him to the end, even after the mystery of God is finished and the hour of temptation begins. I’m not even talking about Kenites or any other nation. Even though I have written quite a bit about Kenites, and they will play an important role in the end days, the true children of the evil one are those who are not in the Book of Life, and that transcends race and nation.
The Book of Life was put together by our Lord God before this age started (Rev. 17:8). As I have written, the Bible clearly states there was an age before this one which this age is based upon. The elect in the previous age never broke the one rule given, while the rest did. Many repented, but most did not. Those who never broke the rule and those who repented became the infidels to the new god. Those who participated in the hunting down of the infidels are not in the Book of Life. The elect, those who repented, and those God deemed worthy of another chance are in the Book of Life. Only the elect cannot have their names blotted out. The ones not in the Book of Life cannot help but serve Satan because their wickedness in the previous life was so great.
This age is to see whether those in the Book of Life are truly worthy of everlasting life. God decided to give much of this creation another chance to return to Him. If you wonder why God would have those whose destiny is the lake of fire live in this life, it’s because God wants those in the Book to be tested. Satan himself is not yet in the lake of fire or in the bottomless pit because he is still serving God. Satan, the persecutor is going along with this because he wants to hurt God as much as possible by bringing down as many of our creation with him as he can. His destiny is the lake of fire along with those angels that helped him and those not written in the Book of Life. Satan’s wish is to blot out as many names in that Book as possible.
As the culmination of this age continues, Satan’s children are beginning to serve him at a fever pitch. He has two fronts: the religious and the political. His religion is Islam and his politics is marxism. Both movements were spread by the sword from their beginning. The Muslim prophet Muhammad introduced Islam with war and even spread well into Europe. If there was no established Christianity, Islam would have had the entire world. For anyone who says that Islam has been misunderstood and has been hijacked by radicals who pervert the words, here is a question they cannot have a kind, gentle answer for: according to the Quran, what happens to the infidels after the battle of the latter days? The true answer is they do not exist. Not because God has pronounced judgment. It is because they are converted or killed, preferably beheaded. I wrote a post called “The Beheading Prophecy” that has verses directly from the Quran to show Islam is a satanic and evil religion. Muslim terrorists will continue to hunt down the infidels because they are told to by their master. There is no new thing under the sun. What has been done will happen again. What will happen has already been done.
Marxism is simply a plot to use those who break the tenth commandment, which is coveting our neighbor’s possessions, to secure total control over the people its leaders profess to want to help. Use the many have nots to threaten and kill the outnumbered haves to force them to play ball with the leaders of the have nots. Once totalitarian power and the oligarchy are secured, it is then the true intentions of marxism are revealed. Both Islam and marxism are global movements designed to have total control over the people. Despite the obvious conflicts in social ideology between marxist progressives and Muslims, they have and will work together because they serve the same master, Satan. If you wonder why progressive pundits condemn Christians for bigotry while sympathizing with the poor Muslim, it is because they are on the same side. They have the same father, the lord of hypocrisy.
Just within the last ten years, satanic progressives have turned wrong into right and right into wrong, and even many people of faith have fallen for it. They use subtlety and emotion to move the world towards evil, and unless one is strong in the Word, it is difficult to combat, even though their ideas can easily be seen as destructive.
Those who are not in the Book of Life that serve him politically are doing things they feel are right. Most have absolutely no idea that they are serving Satan and are committing evil. Even considering that, the marxist forefathers knew that they needed to heat the world in order to remold it nearer to their heart’s desire, and they needed a wolf in sheep’s clothing to fool the people, as the Fabian Socialists window suggests. If their ideas aren’t evil, then why the wolf, and why the need to disguise it? It just sounds right to them. It is what their father would want them to do.
Marxists, who are truly bent on taking down America so the whole world comes down also, answer their calling by getting into industries where they are in your face no matter where you turn. Industries that affect your lives call those who are not in the Book of Life to do their master’s bidding, and Christian churches are not immune to them. Their objective, really his objective, is to move you closer into accepting things that are against what is written, and really are against your best interests. The further you move away from God and His ways, the closer in proximity you are to Satan and his.
Satanic progressives will continue to make God and His ways out to be hateful and evil while not condemning the Quran and those who live by it. They will quote words in the Bible, even Jesus’ words, while not believing (or truly believing) to marginilize their enemies without any context because they are incapable of learning the context. Far too many self-described Christians, who can’t quote John 3:16, will hear them and nod like bobbleheads, saying, “Yeah, Jesus said that.”, also not being able to provide context because they either don’t read or seek answers to the questions of the day. God rewards those who diligently seek Him, but it’s hard seeking Him when you’re keeping up with the Kardashians.
There is a difference between being fooled and those who were omitted from the Book of Life. Even those who surround themselves in the Word are fooled by Satan’s exploits now and then. It is time for everyone to realize what is going on and why. What is being pushed for everyone to accept is done by Satan and his children, all the while pushing the line of acceptance further and further towards wickedness. He is the prince of the power of the air and he will test just how dedicated you are to God through His Son Jesus Christ. If you are against the land of Israel, then you are not dedicated to Him. Revelation 12 is quite clear Satan comes after the land of Israel. Who is against Israel? The marxist and the Muslim. Marxists killed millions of Jews in the 30’s and 40’s, and the Muslim is constantly trying to wipe Israel off the map. There unfortunately will be plenty of those in the Book of Life that will fail. Faith alone isn’t good enough to have everlasting life. These aren’t my words, but Jesus’…
Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone that calls to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he that does the will of My Father, which is in heaven.” “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name? and in Your name have cast out devils? and in Your name done many wonderful works?'” “And then I will profess to them, ‘I never accepted you. Get away from Me, you that work iniquity.'”
What is the will of God? To do good works and not live sinfully. How far will the line of good and evil move the wrong way before you accept your sins are indeed sins? Will you help push the line? Will you look at all political decisions done by our leaders as only being political? Doing so is not sinful, but it won’t make you wise, either.
You keep in mind how avid some people are in pushing things that contradict the Word, and think they just might not be in the Book of Life and are serving a master they are not aware of. Satan’s best trick isn’t convincing the world he doesn’t exist. His best trick is making out that the other guys serve Satan, and he is just a humanist wanting to help everyone. Remember, he already has those that aren’t in the Book. He wants you.
When people have seemingly a natural inclination to ask God why people and children get serious diseases and afflictions, the blame does not rest upon His shoulders, but ours. Many generations ago, God told His chosen nation, the Israelites, that if they abided by His rules, they would never get sick. They did not abide by them. As a matter of fact, it took forty days for them to completely cast aside this covenant they made with Him. The Lord God then told them the effects of their sins would come upon them, and all the way up to the third and fourth generation of the sinner (Exodus 20:5, 34:7). Instead of blaming Him for these effects, one might with wisdom present ask what would happen if the effects of sin did not manifest with afflictions?
When one sins, it brings about a negative reaction all around and Satan’s hold becomes stronger. Not just on that sinner, but in the area of the sinner. This was the purpose for the harsh punishments to give to sinners in the Old Testament when Israelites were to enter the land He promised them- to push the effects of sin away long enough for the Messiah to be born, live life as an adult, and die sinlessly for the sake of our sins. This is why Jesus said as an adult “I have not come to destroy the Law and the prophets, but fulfill.” It was now time to forgive the sinner since He could handle the sacrifice.
Sin is like air that fills a balloon. The more sin there is, the closer that balloon is to breaking apart. If no air is let out to relieve the pressure, the balloon- the world would pop. Affliction visited upon the sinner and their generations relieves the pressure of sin, allowing the world to go on. Since sin in this day is so rampant, this world is about to burst. Hence, we are in the last days awaiting the next age. It is time.
As you may have seen, there is a lot of news about people being beheaded for their faith, or simply because certain Muslims see their victims as their enemies. Both the Bible and the Quran speak of beheading people, but with vastly different viewpoints. The Bible says Christians will be beheaded, while the Quran says nonbelievers will be beheaded. With many saying that Islam has been taken out of context by radical nutjobs, I thought I would take the Quran by its word. Here are some verses from Satan’s book:
2:191 “And kill them (infidels) wherever you find them, and drive them out from where they drove you out, and persecution is more severe than slaughter, but do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight you inside it. But if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the payback of the nonbelievers.”
9:5 “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you see them”
5:33 “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.”
47:4 “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.”
8:12 “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Quran.”
8:60 “Muslims must master all weapons to terrorize the infidels.”
So when you hear those who say Islam has been hijacked by those who pervert the religion, keep these verses in mind. All that these Islamic terrorists are doing is doing their god’s service right from the book. Are all Muslims evil? No, they’re not. God has put a spirit of loving the neighbor inside everyone, which is a law that all have been judged by for generations. Romans 2:12-16 says “For as many have sinned without the Law shall also perish without the Law: and as many as have sinned in the Law shall be judged within the Law.” “(For not the hearers of the Law are just before God, but the doers of the Law shall be justified.” “For when the Gentiles, which do not have the Law, do by nature the things contained in the Law, these not having the Law, are a law unto themselves.:” “Which shows the works of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts meanwhile either accusing or justifying one another.)” “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to the Gospel.” Those who did not know the laws and religion of Moses still had one of the two great laws, according to Jesus, inside them, which is “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Those who love their neighbor as they love themselves, even if they do not know the real God or His Word, are justified by their actions. Those who show hatred for their neighbor are condemned, even if they don’t know the real God or His Word. A far cry from the Quran.
If you have heard ISIS forcing Christian infidels to convert, die, or pay a tax, it’s from 9:29, which says “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and his apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgement of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.” This is called the Jizya law. What is perverted, the religion or the people who exercise it? All they have done is expel the law God wrote in their hearts because they would rather believe God would want them to kill those that don’t believe in Him. This is satanic in every which way.
In the latter time, according to Islam, the infidels are gone after the struggle. Muslims will behead and murder because they are told to, especially in the latter days. Late in the latter days, according to the Bible, beheaded Christians will be justified in heaven. Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they that sat upon them, and judgment was given to them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and had not worshipped the Beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark in their foreheads or in their hands; and they reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Let’s see, the older New Testament says believers will be beheaded while the younger Quran says the nonbelievers will be beheaded. Coincidence? It’s hard to pervert a religion that tells its followers to spread the faith by the sword. Next time you hear someone claim there is a minority of Muslims perverting the religion of Islam, ask what words exactly are they perverting? Ask Muslim clerics, even those of a good heart, what happens to the infidels in the latter days according to the Quran?
There is a lot of debate and speculation as to what the Key of David is. Some believe it is the true lineage of Jews, which is foolish. It is written in Revelation 3:7 that the Church of Philadelphia has this key to a door that no man can shut or open but Christ. How can the Church of Philadelphia have a key to a lineage? It is this verse that partially gives explanation to the answer of this mystery.
The Key of David is simply the promise God gave to David that through his line would come the Saviour, who would bring an everlasting kingdom. The Church of Philadelphia is only the elect of the last generation. All churches written of in Revelation chapters two and three have to do with churches of the latter days. The Church of Philadelphia, as is written in Romans 8:30, have already been judged innocent due to their faithfulness shown in the previous age. They have this key because God has already judged them. They have not denied His name. No man can take away this key from them; no, not Satan himself. No man can enter the everlasting kingdom unless Jesus Christ opens it up to them, all depending on what they do. No man can shut up the kingdom on someone Christ has opened it up to. This is the Key of David.
This law, written in Deuteronomy 25:4, had nothing to do with oxen. When an ox is threshing, he is doing beneficial work. Muzzling an ox would be used to punish and tame it, so you shouldn’t punish the ox for doing a good work. Likewise, you shouldn’t punish a servant of the Lord for doing His work. Like Paul said in 1st Corinthians 9:9, “Does God care about oxen?” He meant this law had nothing to do with actual oxen.
Another thing sort of written about oxen was when Jesus appeared to Paul on the road to Damascus, and said to him “It is hard for you to kick against the pricks.” Jesus said this to Paul accusing him of persecuting Him. A prick was a wooden spike that was fixed behind an ox, typically, to break up the ground for tilling. If the ox refused to move, then the prick could be angled upwards to jab at it to make it move. Sometimes, however, the ox would instead kick back at the prick causing more pain.
Jesus said this to Paul, which subtley told him that Jesus had been calling Paul, but instead of answering the call, he used that inner agitation to go after Christians with more fury. As one that was called, I can tell you that it is such an uncomfortable feeling. The call would make one feel restless, uncomfortable in one’s own skin, and a feeling of not being in the right place no matter where they are. Because we are human, we would not answer His call if we felt good.
