September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”
September 20, 2017, 04:32:32 am Christian40 says: "The most popular Hepatitis B vaccine is nothing short of a witch’s brew including aluminum, formaldehyde, yeast, amino acids, and soy. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Very interesting!
But the video contains verses from the NIV Huh

Here are the videos verses in the Authorized King James Version.  Grin

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1:1).

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made."
(John 1:1-3).

"For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:"
(Colossians 1:16).
3552  General Category / Weather/Earthquakes/Global Science Hoax's / Re: Biblical floods Australia on: January 04, 2011, 12:26:01 am
Genesis 7:

17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

The phrase "Biblical floods Australia" is bit of an exaggeration compared to what really happened in Genesis.

3558  General Category / Bible Study / Love not the world on: December 28, 2010, 10:50:11 pm
Let's face it, there is always something in this world that we are drawn to. It is the nature of our creation, as Paul put, we have been made "subject to vanity." The question as Christians is how we deal with our worldly appetites, be they lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes or the pride of life. The 'new' Christianity says that it's ok to love the world and love God at the same time, God will accept us anyway. Some are even saying that it is acceptable in God's eyes to be a believer in Christ, and still keep your old religion. But the Bible message is very clear, we cannot love God and the world at the same time. Remember that God is a jealous God. He will not give place to another. A true Christian then has only one option, that is to hate the world and everything in it. No exceptions.
 
Most modernized corrupted denominations combine most Christian beliefs with that of modernist infidels. The Bible says, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?" - 2 Corinthians 6:14
 
I'll be honest with you, I don't put myself up high on some pedestal and God is dealing with me about the same stuff I'm talking about in this "Note" I'm writing right now. Lets be honest, alot of people, maybe even you, want to be saved but from now until then just want God to leave you alone. Let the truth be known, that is how some people think that are reading this right now and sitting in churches right now. I don't want that for you and you don't want that for you. As I was putting together this "Note" I can clearly see the LORD dealing with my heart. One of the things I want you to know as I am writing this, is that i'm not sitting here ground beating you or that I'm up high on some pedestal, no. It doesn't mean that what I am talking about that I have already achieved and i'm just waiting for you to catch up, no. I promise you that God is dealing with me about the same stuff that I am talking about here. God is dealing with me the same way I hope and want God to deal with you too after you read this. Does that sound fair enough? One of the worst things I think any man or any Pastor could do is to set them selves up exalted over an congregation as if he has already mastered the rules and as if hes just waiting for you to catch up, whats taking you so long. I don't want to be that person and thats not my intent of this message, and I don't want to be that way in my life either. So I ask, that you pray that God deals with me and that God deals with you.
 
Just briefly by way of introduction the book of "1 John" was written primarily to Christians. And the key verse in "1 John" is, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."
 
I'm going to ask you, how many of you have ever doubted your salvation before? I know I have before. And one of the things we do when we doubt our relationship with God is that we go to the Bible and read what it is that God said we should read, that we will know rather or not that we are saved. I'm writing this because of what Christ has done for me and I know beyond any shadow of a doubt that if I died today that I would be going to Heaven. If you know that for a fact, then say Amen. I'm going to say this to you here out of love, if you are reading this and you don't know that your saved, today is your day. The Bible says, "Behold now is the day of salvation." And I believe that God would have you to be saved.
 
But you say Christian, I pray every night before I go to bed. Christian, I ask God every now and then to forgive my sins. I say thats good to you, but what I'm going to show you here is that there is a difference between unloading off some sins to God that you can't bare anymore because you feel guilty; and a entirely different lifestyle that you are suppose to be living. What that means is that God has a lifestyle that he wants you to live in this world today, do you believe that? I'm going to give you an illustration, when God freed the Israelites out of Egypt, he did not immediately take them into the promised land did he? And their are other examples of that but he did not immediately do that. God had them on a journey of life, and God has you on a journey of life too. He's proving you, for you to figure out whose side you are going to be on. And I'm going to tell you right off the bat, that you CAN NOT be on both sides! You can't do it. We try to play that game, we try to mess around; we try to love the world and love God at the same time, and i'm telling you on the basis of the Bible that we can't do it!
 
The Bible says, (1 John 2:15-17) "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
How many of you need me to interpret that for you? Its pretty direct and self-explanatory isn't it? It's pretty much plain! Notice how it says any man, any man means any man or is there an exemption for you? Or is there an exemption for church members or for pastors or deacons or Sunday school leaders? Is there an exemption for anyone in this world, is anyone going to be able to wiggle there way out of this commandment, any body? If it says any man, it means any man, period. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. There mutually exclusive and they can not dwell together. Think about that. Verse 16 and 17 means that you're an idiot for loving the world and loving something that is going to go away. You're deliberately loving something that the Bible says is going to be burnt up in the ferment heat. Which means the love that you have for that is not going to last forever because it wont be around forever. And I'll say this, if you love the world and the world is going to pass away, what does that tell you about you?!
 
And it then says, "but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." How many of you believe that Heaven is forever? Would you like to live in Heaven forever? Or would you like to be destroyed forever in the lake of fire? So are choice is very clear, we either love the world or we love God, but we can not love both! Have I made myself clear? Has the Bible made its self clear? Here I'm praying for clarity of thought and all we have to do is read the scriptures, Amen!
 
The Bible tells us, (James 4:4) "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."
Do you see what I am doing here? Thats two verses already. What is the principle for a witness in the the scriptures? We find the answer in 2 Corinthians 13:1 "...In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." So already we have two witnesses in the scriptures that tell us that you're either of the world and love the world or you're either of God and love God, but you can not be both! If you believe that, you believe the Bible say Amen! You can not be both! Now we already have two witnesses, and what I'm trying to convince you of and show you from the Bible is that we see so much worldliness in the house of God that is not even funny!
 
Their is a time when it was in the mindset of people that if they went to church that they couldn't be worldly, i mean they just hand that impressed upon their minds. That if they went to church and said that they was Christians, that they couldn't be worldly and they couldn't do what ever the world was doing, they couldn't do that! Thats just what people use to believe. But now-ah-days some slick guys have got up on TV shows and written there books and got on the radio and they put out to quit preaching separation from the world and developed this mindset that you can have both at the same time, and its a lie!!! It's an absolute lie! It's to the extent now, that they open up church worship service, not with the "the old rugged cross" or "Amazing Grace" but with "Rock 'N Roll or Rap" music that you would hear on your way to church. That's what they'll open up there worship service with. I saw the other day of a church that is practicing what they call "club worship" and its actually a club. We all know what that is right? So if I say you went out clubbing, you know what that is right? There clubbing and calling it church. We can't have it, Amen!
 
This is not some small concept that God through in every now and then for someone to notice once or twice. Where seeing that this is every where in the scriptures. Notice what this verse says, (Romans 12:2) "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Notice the separation, be not conformed to the world, but be transformed to the will of God. And there separate!
(1 Corinthians 2:12) "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God." Here again we see the separation, we have received the spirit of God and if you have the spirit of God in you, then you do not have the spirit of the world in you! And if something has the spirit of God then the spirit of the world wants nothing to do with it. (Galatians 6:14) "But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world." Paul was our example, I promise you, if you was to have a time machine and go back into history and go to one of Paul's church services; you're not going to see him up there preaching with a latte in his hand. He's not going to be up there with the drums and guitars and the light shows. He's not going to have him a bed up on stage talking about your sex life and how godly that should be. Thats wicked! Paul said, "the world is crucified unto me and I the world." And Paul wanted nothing to do with it, listen, if any body knew the damage that the world could do to an individuals soul it was the apostle Paul. He knew that if he let the world back into his life even a little or smallest amount he knew what that would do to his testimony and to his life.
 
God uses people to make examples out of them for us to see and to watch them. we learn by our examples, God gives us examples through out of the Bible. Look at Ephesians 2:2-3, "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
(4-6) "But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
 
"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." - Colossians 2:8
What he is saying is, the world is going to say one thing, and Christ is going to say something completely opposite of the world! So if the world says something and then you think God is saying the same thing, God didn't say that. God didn't say that!
 
Now there is a man in the Bible by the name of Demas. And I want you to notice from Philemon verse 24, "Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers."
"For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia." - 2 Timothy 4:10
In fact there is three times in Paul's writings where this Demas is mentioned, I think the other is in the book of Colossians but I'm not sure, but even in the book of Colossians Paul talks favorably about Demas, and at one time was on Pauls side but then in 2 Timothy which we know historically is the last letter Paul wrote on this earth. Look what he said about Demas, "For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia."
Is it because Demas didn't like Pauls doctrine, is it because Demas didn't like the translation of the Bible Paul was using, is it because Demas didn't like the hymn books? NO, it's because HE LOVED THIS PRESENT WORLD!
 
I want to share something with you now, please pay attention to this. You are not so tight in with God that the devil can not come in and get you to fall back into love with the world again. And if your not careful, you're out. You say, I don't believe that Brian. Well I ask you this, did every one that left Egypt make it to Canaanland? In fact at one point, watch this now, at one point they stirred up against Moses in a revolt. And they said, you led us out here to die and to starve to death. Were going back to Egypt. And you know what happened, the Earth opened her mouth and swallowed them up. Why? They loved the world, and they did not love God. And you can be sitting here reading this right now and by the time your done, you can be out. Not because of me but you fall out simply because you love the world. You'll be like Demas if you love the world and not God. Demas use to be one of Paul's right hand men, and if you followed Paul and you fallen away, man you've fallen! So just get that in your head.
 
So have I made this clear enough yet? That your suppose to love God and hate the world, have I made that clear? Has the Bible made that clear so far? Peter said, "For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 21For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them." - 2 Peter 2:20-21
Peter said its worse off. You would be better off being born down in the Amazon Jungle somewhere they have never heard of a Bible. You would be better off being born there then to have been born in this country and have heard the gospel, act like you accept it and then go off and join the world again. You'd be better off.
 
John said, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 5Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?" -1 John 5:4-5.
How many of you recognize things out there in the world that you still love? I know I do. I promise you God is not showing up until there gone! Now you can have them gone in your life, and it says, "whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world" What is it that overcometh the world? Faith is. And where does faith come from? Faith comes from hearing and hearing comes from the word of God.
And when the Bible is absent, there is a whole in your life. When the word of God is taken out, there is an empty whole in your life.  And I promise you, the devil has got enough candy in his jar to fill it. But when you get rid of that now there is a void that God's spirit will fill. In fact the way to get rid of that is to let the Word of God push it out! make sense? This is how it works, you want to overcome the world, get into the book, get into church, get right with God, Amen! Thats how you do it!
 
"They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. 6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error." - 1 John 4:5-6
 
There are people that say, well I pray every night and I ask God every now and then to forgive me of my sins. What there saying is, that there hoping that, thats going to be good enough to get them into heaven or there saying that to get you off of there back. One way or another, there saying it. What they'll tell you is, oh well I believe in God and I believe in Jesus and I believe in the Bible but there not in church and they don't reading the Bible and they love the world. And I'm here to tell you, you're NOT SAVED IF YOU LOVE THE WORLD! Did you catch that, you're not saved if you love the world. I don't care how many times you pray or how many times you do what ever, but the truth of it is; if you wake up the next morning and there is no change in your life whatsoever and the reason why you keep having to go back to God and asking Him to forgive your sins is because God has not removed the desire of sins out of your life because you still love them. And really all you want out of God is a fire escape out of Hell, thats all you want. And I'm telling you thats not salvation! And thats not Christianity either!
 
Maybe it will take us losing everything we have before we are thankful for what he have. My elbow injury has really got my attention and makes me thankful for what I do have. And has brought me closer to God. God is just dealing with me and I like it when God is dealing with me. There are just things we ought not being doing, things we shouldn't be watching or listening to or being a part of or spending our money on or reading.
 
If you think that you're saved, and i'm not saying that you don't struggle with this but if you think that you're saved and you can do what ever you want to and live how ever you want too and have all this and the world apart of your life, I'm going to tell you that you need to get into the Bible and talk to God about your relationship with God because you may not be saved. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world!

Don Francisco - He's Alive - Lyrics

The gates and doors were barred
And all the windows fastened down
I spent the night in sleeplessness
And rose at every sound
Half in hopeless sorrow
And half in fear the day
Would find the soldiers breakin' through
To drag us all away

And just before the sunrise
I heard something at the wall
The gate began to rattle
And a voice began to call
I hurried to the window
Looked down into the street
Expecting swords and torches
And the sound of soldiers' feet

But there was no one there but Mary
So I went down to let her in
John stood there beside me
As she told me where she'd been
She said they might have moved Him in the night
And none of us knows where
The stone's been rolled away
And now His body isn't there

We both ran toward the garden
Then John ran on ahead
We found the stone and empty tomb
Just the way that Mary said
But the winding sheet they wrapped Him in
Was just an empty shell
And how or where they'd taken Him
Was more than I could tell

Oh something strange had happened there
Just what I did not know
John believed a miracle
But I just turned to go
Circumstance and speculation
Couldn't lift me very high
'Cause I'd seen them crucify him
Then I saw him die

Back inside the house again
The guilt and anguish came
Everything I'd promised Him
Just added to my shame
When at last it came to choices
I denied I knew His name
And even if He was alive
It wouldn't be the same

But suddenly the air was filled
With a strange and sweet perfume
Light that came from everywhere
Drove the shadows from the room
And Jesus stood before me
With his arms held open wide
And I fell down on my knees
And I just clung to Him and cried

Then He raised me to my feet
And as I looked into His eyes
The love was shining out from Him
Like sunlight from the skies
Guilt in my confusion
Disappeared in sweet release
And every fear I'd ever had
Just melted into peace

He's alive yes He's alive
Yes He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive yes He's alive
Oh He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive yes He's alive
Hallelujah He's alive
He's alive and I'm forgiven
Heaven's gates are open wide
He's alive He's alive He's alive
I believe it He's alive
Sweet Jesus

(A great song)

I read once that "temptation" and "tribulation" are very similar and that you could replace "temptation" in Mark 14:38 with "tribulation" which gives another angle to the verse.

Some more about watching in the Authorized King James Bible:

"I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top." (Psalms 102:7).

"Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man." (Luke 21:33-36).

"Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong." (1 Corinthians 16:13).

"Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving; Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time." (Colossians 4:2-5).

"Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober." (1 Thessalonians 5:6).

"But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry." (2 Timothy 4:5). 

"But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer." (1 Peter 4:7).

"Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee." (Revelation 3:3).

3562  General Category / False Religions / United Pentecostal Churches Exposed on: December 26, 2010, 08:49:14 pm
The official website of the UPCI United Pentecostal Church International (www.upci.org) states the following:
 
"The United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) has been among the fastest growing denominations in North America since it was formed in 1945 by the merger of the Pentecostal Church, Incorporated, and the Pentecostal Assemblies of Jesus Christ. From 617 churches listed in 1946, the UPCI in North America (United States and Canada) today lists 4,358 churches (which includes 4099 autonomous and 258 daughter works), 9,085 ministers, and reports a Sunday School attendance of 646,304.  Moreover, it is also located in 175 other nations with 22,881 licensed ministers, 28,351 churches and meeting places, 652 missionaries, and a foreign constituency of over 3 million, making a total worldwide constituency of more than 4,036,945.
 
The UPCI emerged out of the Pentecostal movement that began in Topeka, Kansas in 1901. It traces its organizational roots to October 1916, when a large group of ministers withdrew from the Assemblies of God over the doctrinal issues of the oneness of God and water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ."
 
Much of the following information is taken from Mead's Handbook of Denominations (11ed.) and from a book titled Jesus Only Churches, one in a series of Zondervan's, Guide to Cults and Religious Movements.
 
UPC Churches are known as "Jesus Only" Churches because they reject the Godhead (i.e., the Trinity).  They also believe you must be baptized in water and speak in tongues in order to be saved.  They hold to 'Holiness' standards of dress and appearance and recreational activities as do other 'Holiness' Churches.  There are about 600,000 in the USA and about 3 million worldwide.  The United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) was founded in 1945.  It broke away from Assemblies of God and other Pentecostal Churches.  UPCI trace their roots back to the Pentecostal Movement at the turn of the 1900's.  Some Pentecostals came to be known as "Oneness" or "Jesus Only" Pentecostals because they did not believe in the Trinity, and believed water baptism was necessary to get one's sins remitted, and the formula for being baptized was in Jesus' name only; not in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  UPCI also believe that speaking in tongues are evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and thereby one cannot be saved without speaking in tongues.  Holiness is not the result of some act subsequent to salvation, but should be the norm at the moment of salvation for every Christian.  This is the diabolic heresy of Lordship Salvation.
 
A Messed Up Bunch:
 
UPC go way out into left field when they reject the Godhead, and require speaking in tongues and baptism for one to be saved.  "New Birth is achieved by faith, repentance, water baptism, and baptism in the Holy Spirit" (which is evidenced by speaking in tongues); 'Jesus Only' Churches, p51, E. Calvin Beisner.
 
The doctrinal views of UPCI reflect most of the beliefs of the Holiness-Pentecostal movement--with the exception of the "second work of grace"; the Biblical doctrine of the Trinity; and baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.  It embraces the demonic Pentecostal view that speaking in tongues is the initial sign of receiving the Holy Spirit.  If this were true, then why DIDN'T the Apostle John mention speaking in tongues in any of his epistles?  The entire purpose for the writing of 1st John is found in 1st John 5:13, "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."  If baptism and speaking in tongues are necessary for salvation, then why didn't John mention either when the entire purpose of writing his epistle was so that we could KNOW we have eternal life?  It's common sense folks.
 
United Pentecostal Churches and Water Baptism:
 
United Pentecostal Churches teach that water baptism is necessary to get to Heaven.  This differs in teaching from other Pentecostal/Holiness Churches.  Their mode of baptism must be by immersion and the "formula" (as they call it) must be "in Jesus' Name" only; not "in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" of Matthew 28:19.  They also attempt to use 1st Peter 3:21 to mandate baptism for salvation, "The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ."  Lutherans pervert the Gospel by using this same Scripture.  It's important for any Bible student to look at the surrounding Scriptural context in which a statement is made in the Bible.  If you read the entire chapter of 1st Peter 3, you'll learn that Peter was instructing us in Christian living (i.e., wives obeying their husbands, husbands loving their wives, being a law abiding citizen, etc).  Peter was not speaking about the salvation of the soul; but of the believer's life. -READ MORE on 1st Peter 3:21.   Please read, What is Biblical Baptism?   Also, here's an excellent free online book on the subject of baptism by Pastor Max D. Younce, A Biblical Examination Of Baptism.
 
United Pentecostal Churches and the Trinity:
 
UPC rejects the doctrine of the Godhead (i.e., the Trinity), and believe that 'Jesus Only' is God, not the Holy Spirit or the Father.  These are references to Jesus, the UPC claims.  On their official website, the UPC gives 60 reasons why they reject the Trinity on their "doctrine" page.  This the reason why UPC are categorized as a cult in many religious manuals, such as Zondervan's GUIDE TO CULTS series.  The Word of God teaches the Godhead.  Also, please read The Wonderful Truth of the Trinity.  The word "Trinity" may not be in the Bible; but the word "Godhead certainly is ... "For in him (Jesus Christ) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily."  How can anyone deny the Godhead in lieu of Matthew 3:16-17, "And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."  It is absurd for anyone to deny the Godhead with such an abundance of Scriptural support, "If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God" (Colossians 3:1).  There is only ONE God (Deuteronomy 6:4); but He has manifest (or revealed) Himself to mankind in three individual Persons.  It may not make earthly sense; but it is solid teaching from the Word of God.
 
United Pentecostal Churches and Salvation:
 
United Pentecostal Churches believe that water baptism is necessary for salvation in order to get one's sins forgiven, and that one must speak in tongues in order to be saved (which they claim is evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit).

What they believe:
 
"New Birth is achieved by faith, repentance, water baptism, and baptism in the Holy Spirit" (which is evidenced by speaking in tongues)- SOURCE: 'Jesus Only' Churches, p51, E. Calvin Beisner.

The SECOND fall according to the Book of Enoch:
 
The second fall was not due to pride like Lucifer, but to "LUST." Lucifer influenced a Angel named "Samyaza", and he developed an insatiable lust for the "daughters of men" upon the earth and an irrepressible desire to begot children by these women. Samyaza feared to descend alone to the daughters of men, and so he convinced "200 Angels called watchers" to accompany him on his mission of pleasure that Lucifer put them on and up too. (From the book of Enoch - chapters 7, 8 & 9) and also in the Bible(KJV) in "Genesis 6!"
 
Samyaza and his Army of 200 now under Lucifer and his Army:
 
Lucifer's Army: 1/3 of the Angels of heaven.
Samyaza's Army: leader of 200 watchers under Lucifer.
 
They descended upon Ardis, which is the top of Mount Hermon.
 
Names of their Chiefs:
Samyaza "who was the leader of the watchers that fell with him", Urakabarameel, Akiebeel, Tamiel, Ramuel, Danel, Azkeel, Saraknyal, Asael, Armers, Bathaal, Anane, Zavebe, Samaueel, Ertael, Turel, Yemyael, and Arazyal.
"These were the prefects of the 200 Angels."
 
Chiefs:
 
1) Samyaza             11) Armers
2) Urakabarameel    12) Batraal
3) Akiebeel             13) Ananel
4) Tamiel                14) Zavebe
5) Ramuel                15) Samsaveel
6) Danel                   16) Ertael
7) Azkeel                  17) Turel
8) Saraknyal              18) Yomyael
9) Asael                    19) Arazyel
10) Arstikapha            20) Kakabael
                                21) Basasael
 
They all took wives to the daughters of men, and bore children with them. Half Angel, half Human hybrid offspring - the "Nephilim!" They were Giants, "Nephilim" -- Fallen ones, evil seeds.
 
Genesis 6:1-4 (KJV):
"[1] And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,[2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.[3] And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.[4] "There were "giants"-[Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the "sons of God"-[Angels or in this case Fallen Angels] came in unto the "daughters of men"-[female earthly HUMANs], and "they"-[human females/daughters of men] bare children to them {the children were the "Nephilim" or half Angel, half human hybrids} , the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.{They were giants, and this is also were all the mythological stories of gods comes from, these hybrids}"
 
The teachings of the Fallen Angels/Watchers that they taught man:
The Angels teachings to men were; Sorcery, Incantations, and the Dividing of roots and trees.
 
1) Moreover "Azazyel" taught men to make swords, knives, shields, breastplates, the fabrications of mirrors, and the workmanship of bracelets and ornaments, the use of paint, the beautifying of the eyebrows, the use of stones of every valuable and select kind, and all sorts of dyes, so that the world would become altered.
 
Impiety increased; fornication multiplied; and they transgressed and corrupted all their ways.
For women: Eye makeup, and fancy bracelets, etx... To enhance their sex appeal.
For men: Teaches them "every species of iniquity." Including the means for making swords, knives, shields, breastplates and all the instruments of war.
 
He has taught every species of iniquity upon earth, and "has disclosed to the world alot of the secrets things which are done in the heavens!"
 
2) Samyaza: "Also" has taught sorcery, to whom thou hast given authority over these are associated with him.
3) Amazarak: Taught all the sorcerers and divider of roots.
4) Armers: Taught the solution of sorcery.
5) Barkayal: Taught the observation of the starts.
6) Akibeel: Taught Signs.
7) Tamiel: Taught Astronomy
8) Asaradel: Taught the motion of the moon.
 
Now we will go to Enoch chapter 68 for more on this:
 
Of the 21 Chiefs I listed, the book of Enoch calls them Angels, and the names of the leaders of their hundreds, an the leaders of their fifties, and the leaders of their tens.
 
1) The name of the first is "Yekua": he was who seduced all the sons of the Holy Angels; and causing them to descend on Earth, and led astray the offspring of man.
 
2) The name of the second is "Kesabel": who pointed out evil counsel to the sons of the Holy Angels, and induced them to corrupt their bodies by generating with mankind.
 
3) The name of the third is "Gadrel": he discovered every stroke of death to the children of men. He was said to have seduced Eve; and discovered to the children of men the instruments of death, the coat of mail, the shield, and the sword for slaughter; every instrument of death to the children. of men. From his hand were these things derived to them who dwell upon earth. From that period for ever.
 
4) The Name of the fourth is "Penemue": he discovered to the children of men bitterness and sweetness; and pointed out to them every secret of their wisdom. He taught men to understand writing, and the use of ink and paper. Therefore numerous have been those who have gone astray from every period of the world, even to this day. For men were not born for this, thus with pen and with ink to confirm their faith; since they were not created, except that, like the Angels, they might remain righteous and pure. Nor would death, which destroys everything, have affected them; but by this their knowledge they perish, and by this also it's power consumes them.
 
5) The name of the fifth is "Kasyade": he discovered to the children of men every wicked stroke of spirits and of demons. The stroke of the embryo in the womb, to diminish it, the stroke of the spirit by the bite of the serpent, and the stroke which is given in the mid-day by the offspring of the serpent, the name of which is "Tabaet."
 
This is the number of "Kesbel"; the principal part of the oath which the most high, dwelling in glory, revealed to the Holy Ones.
 
It's name is "Beka", he spoke of the Holy Archangel Micha'el to discover to them the sacred name, that they might understand that secret name, and thus remember the oath; and that those who pointed out every secret thing to the children of men might tremble at that name and oath. This is the power of that oath; for powerful it is, and strong. And he established this oath of "Akae" by the instrumentality of the Holy Micha'el.

Also, outside of the Bible, there is some extra Biblical work about all this. The story of the Nephilim is chronicled more fully in the Book of Enoch. The Greek, Aramaic, and main Ge'ez manuscripts of 1 Enoch and Jubilees obtained in the 19th century and held in the British Museum and Vatican Library, connect the origin of the Nephilim with the fallen angels, and in particular with the egrḗgoroi (watchers). Samyaza, an angel of high rank, is described as leading a rebel sect of angels in a descent to earth to have sexual intercourse with human females:
 
"And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it..."
 
According to these texts, the fallen angels who begat the Nephilim were cast into Tartarus (Greek Enoch 20:2), a place of 'total darkness'. However, Jubilees also states that God granted ten percent of the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim to remain after the flood, as demons, to try to lead the human race astray (through idolatry, the occult, etc.) until the final Judgment.

In addition to Enoch, the Book of Jubilees (7:21–25) also states that ridding the Earth of these Nephilim was one of God's purposes for flooding the Earth in Noah's time. These works describe the Nephilim as being evil giants. Targum Pseudo-Jonathan identifies the Nephilim as Shemihaza and the angels in the name list from 1 Enoch. b Yoma 67, PRE22 and 1 QapGen ar ii 1 also identify the Nephilim as the angels that fell.
 
In the New Testament Epistle of Jude 14-15 cites from 1 Enoch 1:9, which many scholars believe is based on Deuteronomy 33:2. To most commentators this confirms that the author of Jude regarded the Enochic interpretations of Genesis 6 as correct, however others have questioned this.

My next statement, I can't prove this but this is a theory of mine. I think the book of Enoch may be Inspired and God left the book of Enoch out of the Bible on purpose, as part of the coming END TIME STRONG Delusion and great deception that is coming. Consider what God said to the Prophet Daniel, "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."--Daniel 12:4.
 
This information, wasn't meant for any other time except now, for us in the LAST OF DAYS! And God is weeding out all the people that would believe a lie and accept other gods over Him. Remember God said, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."--2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. And "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."--Matthew 24:24.
 
Consider this, the book of Enoch has been preserved in the Ethiopian Bible for the last 500 years. Remember, Phillip started the Ethiopian Eunuch. And I think God preserved it through them because Ethiopia is a 3rd world country and knew the Power Elite wouldn't care much about them to look there.
 
Now lets compare the Book of Enoch to the Bible(KJV):
The KJV quotes, the book of Enoch in Jude. "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints"--Jude 1:14. And, Jude 1:15, "To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him."
 
Compare this with Enoch 1:9 which says: "And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgment upon all, And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
 
The Book of Enoch listed above also references other parts of the Bible where this verse is fulfilled: Rev 19:11,"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war."  And, Rev 19:12, "His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. " And, Rev 19:13, "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God." And, Rev 19:14,  "And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean."

"But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."--Matthew 24:37
 
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."--Ephesians 6:12
 
Different types of Beings according to the Bible:
1) God
Hosts of Heaven. Different types of Angels/Fallen Angels, Good and bad:
2) Cherubims
3) Seraphims
4) Ophanim
5) Archangel
6) Man looking Angels / Watchers
7) Principalities
8) Powers
9) Rulers of the darkness of this world
10) Spiritual Wickedness in High Places
Other beings:
11) Nephilims. Different races of Nephilim; The "Emim" (the fearful ones), The "Rephaim" (the dead ones), and the "Anakim" (the long-necked ones.) Also, we have the - Grigori, Gibborim, Phoenixes, Chalkidri.
12) Humans
13) Demons -- (disembodied spirits of the Nephilim)
14) Animals
 
Scripture uses other names to describe these degraded fallen angels and their descendents in addition to the word Nephilim, they are...
Rephaim - from the root rapha = spirits, shades Gen. 14:5
Anakim - race of giants Num. 13:33 descendents of Nephilim
Emim - the proud deserters, terrors, race of giants Gen. 14:5
Zuzim- the evil ones, roaming things Gen. 14:5
Zamzummims - the evil plotters, Deut. 2:20
Zophim - watchers, angels who descended Num. 23, distinct from "holy watchers" aligned with God
Sepherim - the many. . . .
Now lets describe some of these 14 Beings I listed:
 
1) Almighty God: God is the divine creator and judge of everything; the creator of this universe, creator of time and space and matter, etc… So it is safe to say that to describe God is like asking an ant to describe physics. God created time, so therefore he exists outside of time and space and matter. God is “HOLY”, holy means separate; meaning even though God created everything, he is separate from his creation. Everyone tries to put God in a manmade box when describing him, but you can’t do that because God is outside of that box because he is not manmade. God made man, not the other way around. With that said, to give an accurate description of him is utterly impossible! Never the less, I will describe him to the best of what my mind will grasp and allow me. God is the elect most high infinite living holy being that is Omnipotence, Omniscience, Omnipresence and the creator and judge of everything. God is just, loving but also very jealous! It is impossible for God to sin or have sin because sin is an aggression against God. He is our Heavenly Father! Our mind can’t even fathom, grasp or fully understand God and never will until we are with him. When Moses was commissioned by God to be Israel’s liberator from the bondage of Egypt by Pharaoh he asked the name of God to validate his God-given role to the children of Israel (see Exodus 3:14). God simply answered Moses, “ehyeh-asher-ehyah”: “I AM THAT I AM” which derives from the ‘Qal’ imperfect first person form of the verb ‘hayah’: “I WILL BE” and therefore indicates a connection between God’s name “YHWH” or “YAHWEH” or "JEHOVAH" and being itself. YHWH is the source of all being and has being inherent in himself (i.e. He is necessary being). Meaning everything else is contingent being that derives existence from him. The name of God “YHWH” also and most definitely bespeaks transcendence of God. In himself, God is beyond all attributes of language or predications! With that said you should now fully understand that he is the source and foundation of all possibility of utterance and thus is beyond all deferent description.

2) The Cherubims: The Cherubim are first mentioned in the Bible(KJV) in Genesis 3:24, "So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life."
The Tabernacle and the Temple along with their articles contained many repesentations of Cherubim. Chapters 1 and 10 of the book of Ezekiel describe the "four living creatures"(Ezekiel 1:5) as the same beings as the Cherubim(Ezekeil 10). Each had four faces, "As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle."--Ezekiel 1:10, and, "And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle."--Ezekiel 10:14.
 
They have four faces, four wings, and have the likeness of a man: Ezekiel 1: 5-11:
"Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies."
 
3) The Sepaphim (Fiery, burning ones/flaming ones): Are one of the highest forms of Hosts or Angelic beings under God. In Isaish 6, we read, "I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."
The Seraphim worship God day and night and never leave His presence. They sing the "Thrice Holy" hymn. They left the LORD only once, "And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died."--Numbers 21:6.
 
4) Ophanim: Ophan means "Wheel" in Hebrew. The Bible describes them like this, "Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four." -- Ezekiel 1:15-18.
 
5) Archangel: The Chief/General of and over the Angels/Hosts of Heaven. The Bible(KJV) mentions only ONE Archangel; Michael The Arch-Angel. Gabriel is mentioned in Luke, but not as an Archangel, just a Angel.
Micha'EL in Hebrew means, "who is like EL" i.e. One who is like God (EL). Michael is viewed as the field commander of the Army of God. In Daniel he appears as, "one of the Chief Princes."
6) Man looking Angels / Watchers:  [non- human or "alien" intelligent beings] exist diverse myriads. The concept of an ANGEL comes from the Greek aggelos from the Hebrew ago meaning "one going forth" or "one leading"; messenger. Not all angels are "good". Not all angels continue to do God's will, although all angels were originally created by God to convey His message. Some angels rebelled against God's plan. Some angels go forth to give their own message; some angels go forth to lead mankind AWAY from the truth. But all angels are more intelligent and powerful beings than mere humans, it is easy to see how the rebellious angels could have been worshipped as gods, when they descended to the Earth before the Flood, and deceived humans (Genesis 6).
 
The angels are represented throughout the Bible as a body of spiritual beings who intermediate between God and men: "For thou hast made him (man) a little lower than the angels" (Psalm 8:5). Angels, just as mankind, are created beings; "Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.... Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. He commanded and they were created" (Psalm 148:2, 5: Colossians 1:16, 17). Contrary to popular belief, the Bible does not say that the only intelligent beings populating the universe are humans, in fact God created countless "non- human intelligent beings" before mankind. God is known throughout the Bible as the LORD OF HOSTS: Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places. Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?--Job 25:2-3
 
Among these myriads of angels are those who follow their own rebellious plan instead of God's. Those rebel angels -- who appear in many guises, from ghosts to aliens to "Blessed Virgin Mary" or BVM apparitions like Fatima -- are the intelligent non-human beings behind UFOs and the paranormal. *THEY* have a plan, their message is a deceptive one.
 
The Old Testament uses revealing descriptive names. Words which describe these beings, such as b'nai Elohim meaning "sons of God", Zophim meaning "the watchers", and Malakh meaning "messengers", (this reference was translated angel in English), are used for the "aerial host" often regardless of alignment. The Book of Enoch tells us the origin of certain "interdimensional intelligences."
 
My friend David summed it all up this way, QUOTE, " When we compare what people describe UFO's and ET experiences with the scriptures, it becomes obvious that the Bible is telling us that these things are demonic in nature. Test the spirits....
 
An example from ...the movie The Fourth Kind...the alien speaking through the guy on video tape says "I will enforce my will..." Hmmm....who said "I will, I will..." in Isaiah 14?
 
Peter Ruckman, in his commentary on Revelation, said something very interesting about angels. He said that the definition of angel is more than just 'messenger' in Rev. 2 and 3. Angels are more than messengers -- they wage war, the kill, they bring judgment, and a whole bunch of other things.
 
Ruckman said the blanket definition of an angel is "appearance." In every instance, the angel appears to do something. Apply it to any passage and it makes sense:
 
The angel of the Lord is an 'appearance of the Lord.'
An angel of light is an 'appearance' of light. Get it? It 'appears' to be light...
 
So, my point: Paul said, Gal 1:8 But though we, or AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 
Get that? An angel, or AN APPEARANCE FROM HEAVEN? If anything appears from heaven (like an alien or UFO) and preaches any other gospel, it is accursed! The idea of aliens attacks faith in Christ and the authority of scripture." END-QUOTE by David.
 
7) Principalities: The concept of principalities is understood by the Greek word arche meaning chief or ruler. These principalities are ruling devil spirits possessing executive authority or governmental rule in the world.  As we will see, this ruling power usually involves a particular nation, people or race. There are evil angels ruling the kingdoms of the world that oppose the truth of God, and of which Satan is the chief prince or ruler, of both the world system and its organization of demons, as noted in the gospel of Matthew.
 
In Matthew 12:24, the devil is called "Beelzebub" meaning lord of the dwelling, in which these wicked spirits are subject to and operate under Satan's dominion. They, like their chief prince, direct, control, rule and carry out the present darkness of this world.
 
The American Heritage Dictionary defines principalities as:
1. A territory ruled by a prince or from which a prince derives his title.
2. The position, authority, or jurisdiction of a prince; sovereignty.
  The idea of prince devil spirits ruling or controlling a region is supported in the Old Testament book of Daniel, chapter 10.  Daniel is visited by an angel in response to his prayer to God. This angel, who was sent by God to answer Daniel's prayer, was delayed for 21 days because of a battle that took place between God's angel and "a prince of the kingdom of Persia."Daniel reveals the angel's message in the following verses:
 
Daniel 10:12-13 (King James Version)
 "12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia."
 
The spiritual battle, for this angel, was of such magnitude that Michael, the archangel of God and designated prince of Israel, assisted the angel in battle. Another enemy of God, the prince of Greece, is also mentioned in the verses below.
 
Daniel 10:20-21 (King James Version)
"20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come.
 21 But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince."
 
The book of Daniel gives us an excellent example of how these unseen spiritual entities fight to increase and maintain their realms of influence and control in order to hinder God's purposes.  In addition, as previously stated, these princes are named after the nations or rather their principalities in which they rule.
 
It is Satan's purpose to deceive these nations and to keep them from obtaining a knowledge of God's truth and salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. In the book of Revelation, chapter 20, Satan is depicted as a deceiver of nations. The Greek word for deceive is planaho, and according to Strong's Greek Dictionary, this word means to "cause to roam from safety, truth or virtue, go astray, seduce, wander, and to be out of the way."
 
Satan's major success, in deceiving a nation, is due to a lack of discernment on the part of the people.  The people are blind to the invisible forces of supernatural evil that are operating and influencing their visible human agents of political, social, religious and philosophical programs. Satan's greatest victory would be to convince the world that he just doesn't exist. However, God signifies the devil as the author of sin, sickness and death, and warns us to be alert and vigilant because the devil, as a roaring lion roams about seeking whom he may devour (1 Pet. 5:8).
 
The devil controls the kingdoms of the world and we are not to underestimate his influence and power, nor believe that this is the will of God.  God is telling us to "stand" against these evil forces by equipping ourselves with the power of God, and looking unto Christ as our example.
 
Luke 4:5-7 (King James Version)
"5 And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
 7 If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine."
 
These are "kingdoms" - From G935; properly royalty, that is, (abstractly) rule, or (concretely) a realm(literally or figuratively): - kingdom, + reign.
 
There will also come a day in which we are told in the book of Revelation,
Revelation 11:15 (King James Version) "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."
 
However, until this Scripture is fulfilled we can only conclude, as the Apostle Paul instructs, that our wrestling involves principalities or peoples or regions under the influence and deception of Satan.  Satan is the prince or ruler of the kingdoms of this world, also described in the Bible as the "kingdom of darkness," in which we have our spiritual warfare.  In addition, let us not be fooled, because Satan can and does prosper evil people in the world.
 
8 & 9) Powers & Rulers of the darkness of this world: The Greek word for "powers" is exousia which means derived or conferred authority, the warrant or right to do something, or delegated influences of control.  Although the word "powers" is left unclear as to Paul's precise meaning in the verse, this expression is used elsewhere in scripture to infer the powers that be in authority. In keeping with the context of this verse, this would include all high-ranking, evil supernatural powers and the power of sin and evil in operation in the world. The fruits of this type of evil can probably be seen in drug cartels, gross poverty, plagues, terrorism, and other heinous crimes against humanity, even toward the animal kingdom.
 
 Some Christian authors also associate "world rulers" with magic and demonic pagan gods such as the Ephesians' Artemis and seems to be in line with the pagan culture of ancient times, in which temples were dedicated to these demonic pagan deities. And let us not forget "Molech," the national god of the Ammonites' in Old Testament history.  The priests would place the sacrificial children into the brass hands of the image, in which these helpless victims would slip into the fire below. This is described in Scripture as the "abominations of the heathen" (2 kings 16:3).
 
10) Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: The Greek word for wickedness is ponēria and means depravity and particularly in the sense of malice and mischief, plots, sins, and iniquity (Strong's Gk. Dict.).
 
Malice [A. H. Dict.] is defined as:
1. A desire to harm others or to see others suffer; extreme ill will or spite.
2. Law -- The intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in harm to another.
Satan is also depicted as the prince of the power of the air
 
 Since Satan is the prince of the power of the air, these wicked spirits, in high places, are often understood to be the collective organization of all of Satan's devil spirits.  These malevolent spirits work evil and mischief and operate in our atmosphere. They operate as close to the very air we breathe, and reach to realms beyond.  All kinds of spiritual filth are propagated , in these realms, for the purpose of humanity's deception and subsequent destruction. Prior to becoming a Christian we too walked according to the prince of the power of the air.
 
Ephesians 2:2-3 (King James Version)
"2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
 
"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world."
 
As Christians we are delivered from the power of the prince of the air, and from the sinful nature that once ruled our path in life. When we received God's Holy Spirit, at the moment of our conversion to Christ, we were translated from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of God's light, in which we now have God in Christ in us. We are continually delivered and empowered by God as we walk according to His Word and Spirit that He has given us. As we do this, we take our seat in the heavenlies with Christ, for scripture reads,
 
Ephesians 2:5-7 (King James Version)
"5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
 7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus."
 
Jesus is also called a Prince, He is called the Prince of Peace and of Life (Isa. 9:6 and Acts 3:15) Whose kingdom plays no part in this present world system of darkness. Prior to His arrest, Jesus said to His disciples,
John 14:30 (King James Version)
"Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me."
 
John 18:36 (King James Version)
"Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."
 
Please note: Jesus is not speaking against the Jews, for Jesus and His followers were Jewish. He is speaking against the hypocritical religious authorities who would have Jesus killed versus lose their sphere of control over the people of God, in which their own belly was their god.
 
The details of God's plan, His provision of escape from Satan's kingdom of darkness through faith in Christ, was kept a mystery from the beginning of time.  It wasn't until the revelation of the Son of God on earth, and His complete victory in His death and resurrection for the salvation of humanity, that the mystery of salvation through Christ is revealed to us.  The Apostle Paul states,
 
1 Corinthians 2:7-10 (King James Version)
"But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God."
 
In other words, if God's enemies knew that the Lord's death would bring the Kingdom of God and His power into the hearts of every believer, with His gift of Holy Spirit, and thus bring God's light into the world, they would not have crucified Him.
 
11) Nephilims: In short, Half Angel, Half Humen hybrids! The word from the hebrew is נְפִילִים , the transliteration is "Nephilim" and the proper translation as rendered by the KJV is "Giants, mighty men which were of old, men of renown." The word Nephilim derives from the Hebrew root npl (נָפַל), "to fall" which also includes "to cause to fall" and "to kill, to ruin". The Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon gives the meaning as "giants."
 
Always in the OT, the phrase "sons of God" always referred to Angels. The NT is the only time the "sons of God" is in reference to Born-Again Christians. Thats why CONTEX is very important. So the NT phrase of "sons of God" = Born-Again Christians.The OT phrase of "sons of God" = Angels! 100% of the time in the OT the term "sons of God" is in reference to Angels! Let me give you an Example of this. In the Book of Job, we read:
 
"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."-- Job 1:6-7
 
It's talking about Angels there, because there is no way possible a man could come with Satan to present himself before the LORD! The Bible says NO MAN has seen the Father and lived, and to be absent from the Body is to be present with the LORD, and that it is appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgment.
 
Now lets go to Genesis 6, and it should make alot more sense to you now:
 
"[1] And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,[2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.[3] And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.[4] There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.[5] And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.[6] And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.[7] And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.[8] But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.[9] These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." --Genesis 6:1-9
 
You just read in there that there were "giants" in the earth in those days and the "sons of God" came in unto the "daughters of men", and "they bare children to them", the same became [Nephilim] mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
 
Lets look at verse 4 again and every thing i put in brackets "[]" will be my words explaing this more to you:
 
"There were "giants"-[Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the "sons of God"-[Angels or in this case Fallen Angels] came in unto the "daughters of men"-[female earthly HUMANs], and "they"-[human females/daughters of men] bare children to them {the children were the "Nephilim" or half Angel, half human hybrids} , the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.{They were giants, and this is also were all the mythological stories of gods comes from, these hybrids}"
 
Different races of Nephilim; The "Emim" (the fearful ones), The "Rephaim" (the dead ones), and the "Anakim" (the long-necked ones.) Also, we have the - Grigori, Gibborim, Phoenixes, Chalkidri.
 
Also, outside of the Bible, there is some extra Biblical work about all this. The story of the Nephilim is chronicled more fully in the Book of Enoch. The Greek, Aramaic, and main Ge'ez manuscripts of 1 Enoch and Jubilees obtained in the 19th century and held in the British Museum and Vatican Library, connect the origin of the Nephilim with the fallen angels, and in particular with the egrḗgoroi (watchers). MORE ON THIS LATER.
 
12) Humans: Biological beings made in the image of God Almighty, that consists of body, soul, and spirit.
 
13) Demons: Disembodied spirits of the Nephilim.
 
14) Animals: Do I realy need to explain what Animals are??? lol
 
3565  General Category / Bible Study / Not being of this world on: December 26, 2010, 05:24:26 pm
Examine what the Bible says about being of this world, why it is bad, and what can make you think and act like the world.

This is a huge issue today among modern Christians, especially in the U.S. Many Christians think, act, talk, and dress like the world to the point where there is no difference between Christians and unbelievers. This is dangerous. We need to be separate, a peculiar people, set apart from this world. There needs to be a clear line between righteous and unrighteous, holy and unholy, clean and unclean, but that line has been stretched to an enormous gray area.
 
If an unbeliever meets someone who claims to be born again and sees no real difference between the Christian's life and the unbelievers life, this makes the unbeliever think they can become a Christian without having to make any major changes in their life. The unbeliever won't think they have to give anything up. There will be no true repentance and turning away from sin.
 
When an unbeliever who has some knowledge of the bible sees a Christian living their life in contradiction to the scripture, they will view Christians as just big hypocrites whose actions and lifestyle don't match up with the Word of God. This utterly repels them from accepting the Gospel.
 
Let's take a quick look at the dictionary definition of the word "hypocrite" just to get a clear picture of what I'm talking about:
 
hyp·o·crite [hip-uh-krit]–noun 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, esp. a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements.
 
So even if you have sincere beliefs, but your lifestyle and actions don't match up with the beliefs you say you have, you will be a hypocrite.
 
PART 1 - NOT OF THIS WORLD
 
"[2] And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."- Romans 12:2
 
Don't conform to the world, but be tranformed by the Word of God.
 
"[15] Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."- I John 2:15
 
If you love the world the love of the Father is not in you. How can you help others without the love of the Father?
 
"[4] Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."- James 4:4
 
Be faithful to God and not to men. It's better to have no friends at all than to be the enemy of God.
 
"[22] And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.[23] The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.[24] Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?[25] And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?[26] If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?[27] Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.[28] If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?[29] And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.[30] For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.[31] But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you."
 
- Luke 12:22-31
 
Everyone of this world is constantly seeking more money so they can buy more material possessions. If we have faith and seek the Lord first he will provide for us the things we need.
 
"[18] If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.[19] If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.[20] Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.[21] But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me."
 
- John 15:18-21
 
If no one hates you then you are not speaking the pure Word of the Lord. The world doesn't love the Gospel. This suffereing is nothing compared to what our master Jesus did for us. They hated him first.
 
"[9] Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.[10] For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.[11] For behold this selfsame thing, that ye sorrowed after a godly sort, what carefulness it wrought in you, yea, what clearing of yourselves, yea, what indignation, yea, what fear, yea, what vehement desire, yea, what zeal, yea, what revenge! In all things ye have approved yourselves to be clear in this matter."
 
- II Corinthians 7:9-11
 
There are many reasons that people get depressed in this world. Most of the time this sorrow leads to negative things like alcoholism, drug addiction, and even suicide. Godly sorrow, which comes from the Holy Spirit's conviction, will lead you to repentance and a change of your life. (This scripture proves that you have to be sorry when you repent, it's not just "changing your mind")
 
PART 2 - THE WISDOM OF THIS WORLD
 
"[18] For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.[19] For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.[20] Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?[21] For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe."
 
- I Corinthians 1:18-21
 
Many times when people hear the Gospel they think it is stupid or crazy. People are puffed up with their vain knowledge they gained in college. God makes the wisdom of this world foolish. One day he will destroy it.
 
"[12] Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.[13] Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.[14] But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.[15] But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.[16] For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
 
- I Corinthians 2:12-16
 
If the spirit of the world is in you, you cannot truly understand the Word of God. Man's wisdom will only hinder you from learning.
 
"[4] And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.[5] For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ.[6] As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him:[7] Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.[8] Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
 
- Colossians 2:4-8
 
Don't let any man beguile you with enticing words in a book or on TV. There are vain philosophies out there which sound moral and just on the surface, but are nothing but vain deceit.
 
PART 3 - WHO IS THE GOD OF THIS WORLD?
 
"[36] Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight,"- John 18:36
 
Jesus tells us not to physically fight against injustice in this world because it is not his kingdom. This world will pass away and the Lord's true kingdom will replace it.
 
"[8] Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;[9] And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.[10] Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve."
 
- Matthew 4:8-10
 
Why would the devil offer the kingdoms of this world to Jesus if they were not his to give?
 
"[3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:[4] In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."- II Corinthians 4:3,4
 
Satan has blinded the minds of those who believe not and he will blind professing Christians as well who are lead astray by the things of this world.
 
"[1] And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;[2] Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:[3] Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.[4] But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,[5] Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)[6] And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:[7] That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus."
 
- Ephesians 2:1-7
 
If you walk according to the course of this world, you are walking according to Satan's will. You are walking in disobedience after the lusts of your flesh.
 
"[31] Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out."- John 12:31
 
This world will be judged and Satan will be cast out. This is the end result of those who live like the world.
 
"[4] Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world."- I John 4:4
 
Remember this always because it will help you to overcome the world. It's not you, but Christ in you that overcomes the devil.
 
PART 4 - WHAT CAN MAKE YOU OF THIS WORLD?
 
This section is about how television, movies, videogames, music, etc. will make you of this world. They will alter the way you think and view the world. The changes in thoughts are for the worse turning you gradually further and further away from how you should think and live according to the Word of God.
 
"[5] They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.[6] We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error."- I John 4:5,6
 
Every secular song has a meaning or message which unbelievers can relate to. It is almost always immoral and unbiblical or in some cases outright anti-Christian. You should not be relating to this music. The same goes for TV shows and movies. They have messages, humor, and stories that are all completely of this world. They will desensitize you more and more until you view sinful, ungodly, rebellious behavior as normal. When the world speaks you should not hear it, but in turn have an answer from scripture.
 
"[3] I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me."- Psalms 101:3
 
When you watch TV or a movie or play a videogame, are you setting wicked things before your eyes? Violence? Lustful and sexual content? Riotous sinful behavior? Cruelty to others as entertainment?
 
"[16] For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.[17] And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."- I John 2:16,17
 
First we will look at the lust of the eyes. Remember, the world and it's lusts will pass away so don't get sucked in. It's not worth it.
 
"[27] Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:[28] But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.[29] And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell."- Matthew 5:27-29
 
Jesus gives a strong warning here. If you look at a woman(or man) with lust in your heart you are committing adultery. How much sexual, lustful, and perverse content is on TV and in movies and videogames? Are you causing yourself to lust by constantly viewing these images? Jesus would rather have you cut your eye out than to lust your way to hell. This is not to be taken lightly.
 
"[29] Let no corrupt* communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers."- Ephesians 4:29
 
* corrupt - (adjective) -debased in character; depraved; perverted; wicked; evil(verb) - to destroy the integrity of; cause to be dishonest, to lower morally; pervert
 
The way that people talk on TV, in movies, videogames, and music is vulgar in many ways. This "entertainment" is full of cursing, sexual innuendo, mocking God and Christianity, and crude toilet humor. Repeated exposure to this corrupt communication will change the way you talk and the things you say.
 
"[8] But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth."- Colossians 3:8
 
Stop the filthy communication coming out of your mouth.
 
"[4] The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.[5] His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.[6] He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity.[7] His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity."- Psalms 10:4-7
 
The wicked man's mouth is full of cursing, mischief, and vanity. Do we see this on TV?
 
"[1] My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.[2] For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.[3] Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.[4] Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.[5] Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth![6] And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.[7] For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:[8] But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.[9] Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.[10] Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.[11] Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?[12] Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.[13] Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.[14] But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.[15] This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.[16] For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.[17] But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.[18] And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace."- James 3:1-18
 
This chapter is the biggest exhortation on controlling your tongue in the bible. We need to tame the tongue and control it. We need to show by good conversation our works with meekness of wisdom. TV and movies do not help us to achieve this, but in reality corrupt our communication.
 
The last section of how worldy entertainment affects us will deal with the pride of life. What is the attitude of people in worldy entertainment and what sentiments do they express?
 
"[3] Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,[4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:[6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.[8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.[9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."- II Peter 3:3-9
 
Are there people on TV who scoff at the bible and God? Are there people who are willingly ignorant of the fact that the Lord created the universe and everything in it? The Lord doesn't want anyone to perish, but many people would rather believe in evolution than in the God of the bible. In these last days, how do you think it afftects you when you constantly subject yourself to this contradictory attitude?
 
"[1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.[2] For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,[3] Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,[4] Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;[5] Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.[6] For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,[7] Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."- II Timothy 3:1-7
 
Do these verses describe almost exactly all of the behavior you see in movies and on TV? What does worldy entertainment show but people who only care about themselves and their own pleasure? How many shows are about people being lying backstabbers? Is not pride and arrogance the norm? These truly are the perilous times. Don't deceive yourself into thinking that subjecting yourself to this kind of "entertainment" will not affect you. Either you let the ungodly behavior displayed transform you or you let the Word of God transform you.
 
"[14] And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,[15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.[16] These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.[17] But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;[18] How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.[19] These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit."- Jude 1:14-19
 
This is the fate of wordly minded people.
 
PART 5 - THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLEAN AND UNCLEAN
 
"[15] I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.[16] So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."- Revelation 3:15,16
 
Jesus doesn't like a lukewarm faith. You need to make a decision today and be all or nothing. There is no halfway. This sentiment is clear in scripture:
 
"[15] And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.- Joshua 24:15
 
You need to make as decision today. Who will you serve? There is no in between.
 
"[21] Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils."- I Corinthians 10:21
 
You can't have it both ways. You have to give your whole life to Christ, not just part of it.
 
"[14] Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?[15] And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?[16] And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.[17] Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,[18] And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."- II Corinthians 6:14-18
 
If the majority of your friends are unbelievers then you most certainly will be negatively affected. Their influence will overwhelm you and compromise your walk. We need to be showing unbelievers love by witnessing to them, not drinking, watching TV, or participating in worthless conversations and activities with them.
 
PART 6 - THE DANGER OF BEING OF THIS WORLD
 
"[18] And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,[19] And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful."- Mark 4:18,19
 
Using the parable of the sower, Jesus explains the danger of being of this world. It can choke the Word to the point where you are useless to the Lord.
 
"[20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.[21] For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.[22] But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire."- II Peter 2:20-22
 
It would be better for you to have never been saved than to let the pollutions of this world overtake you again after the fact.
 
PART 7 - HOW SHOULD WE ACT?
 
"[9] In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.[10] Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.[11] Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.[12] No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.[13] Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.[14] And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.[15] Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.[16] And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.[17] Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world."- I John 4:9-17
 
God loved us so much he sent his only begotten son to die for us on the cross. We should show our love for him by being as Christ is in the world and not conformed to the ways of the world.
 
"[13] Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.[14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.[15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.[16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
 
- Matthew 5:13-16
 
"[6] Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."- Colossians 4:6
 
What does salt do? It preserves and irritates. Preserve the Word of the Lord you have received by not compromising it. Irritate by refusing to speak anything but the pure truth of the Gospel. Mega churches water down the Gospel so that it is not offensive to anyone. This doesn't save anyone, but in fact sends people to hell with a false gospel. We need to be the light of the world also. We can't be the light of the world if we are trying to be like the dark world. Don't hide your candle.
 
"[25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."- John 12:25
 
We need to not care about losing anything in this world no matter what it is. We only need to be concerned about spreading the Gospel of salvation and the love of Christ. If people reject it, then that is their choice. We should not try to relate to them more by being of this world. This doesn't make people listen more, it taints the Gospel and your personal testimony. We just need to present the Gospel and pray for their salvation. Anything beyond this is not in our hands, but in God's hands.
 
I hope and pray you will consider this exhortation. Let's stop compromising and stand unwaveringly in the Word.

M.M.E.A. - MULTIPLE MICRO ELECTRODE ARRAY

The MMEA chip is funded by DARPA which is The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technology for use by the military. D.A.R.P.A. IS FUNDING AN IMPLANTABLE CHIP FAR MORE ADVANCED THAN"DIGITAL ANGEL"! M.M.E.A. - MULTIPLE MICRO ELECTRODE ARRAY IS SO ADVANCED IT CAN FULFILL REV 13:16-18! However, behind the scene and very quietly, that superscret DARPA "Anti-terrorist" organization headed by Admiral John Poindexter began to pump significant dollars of research behind a new implantable chip called MMEA, Multiple Micro Electrode Array. This chip is so far ahead of the Digital Angel Veri-Chip (RFID) product, it took my breath away. Once you fully understand its capability, you will realize its probable full prophetic significance, and will realize that we may have probably been pointed to Digital Angel simply so we would not be aware of MMEA.

You can see how all humans on earth can be completely controlled by this implantable chip! Emotions - fear, euphoria, depression -- plus pleasure and pain, can be controlled and even caused, by R.F. (Radio-Frequency signal)! Silent, large funding is occurring that soon will be ready for "The Christ" to use once he arises. RFID is just the "tip of the iceberg". The New World Order is coming! Are you ready? Once you understand what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, you will be able to see it progressing in your daily news!! "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." (Rev 13:16-17). For many years, Christians have looked at the development of an implantable device as one of THE signs that the Kingdom of Antichrist is drawing close. When Digital Angel publicly began to promote their human implantable chip, Christians the world over gasped in excitement that an implantable chip was now on the world scene, being promoted for all the medical, financial, and personal benefits it could provide the human host. When Digital Angel went public on Wall Street, and when they began to get large orders, we all felt that the prophetic time table was moving ever faster forward.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
 
Matthew 24:24, "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."
 
We are told that the end time delusion is so strong that it will deceive the whole earth into accepting the antichrist. This lie of the end times will even fool many who think they are now Christians. This website is intended to counter the End Time Delusion, so that fewer people will be seduced by The Lie when it is allowed to come on the earth in full force.
 
Satan's time is short... Prophecy warns that advanced beings, the b'nai Elohim or SONS OF GOD, not "gods", will continue to deceive mankind. Although the Bible itself does indeed say that the Sons of God genetically manipulate humans, they are not THE creators of the human race but merely beings who pervert God's creation. We are warned not to believe these angels, for they have an agenda...to mislead the world. Extraterrestrials may admit they are angelic, but they give themselves away as the rebel angels. Satan and his rebel angelic hosts are subverting creation by twisting the truth, in their attempt to "be like the Most High".
 
The New Age sets up a scenario of miracles, earth changes, and aid from enlightened beings. The Bible warns us that there will be many signs preceding the arrival of anti-christ, but also tells us few will escape the deception of the end times:
 
The Antichrist will Counterfeit Prophecy:

The Second Coming of Christ:
1. Christ arrives at the end of a great war - Armageddon
2. The war will end in fire for the enemies of Israel
3. Christ comes with His holy ones, His raptured saints
4. Christ sets up an era of peace as ruler of the earth
5. Christ builds the Millennial Temple of Ezekiel 40

The Coming of the Antichrist:
1. Antichrist arrives at end of a great war - Gog and Magog
2. The war will end in fire for the enemies of Israel
3. Antichrist comes with his "holy ones" - aliens in UFO's
4. Antichrist sets up era of peace under global dictatorship
5. Antichrist allows building of Third Jerusalem Temple

When considering the identity of the Antichrist, keep in mind he will SEEM like the Messiah of Israel.
3568  General Category / UFO/Watcher Theology / Angels, Nephilim and UFO's on: December 25, 2010, 09:42:37 pm
"Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices."--2 Corinthians 2:11
 
It has been said that Christians are "pretty narrow minded" to limit the population of the universe to merely GOD, ANGELS, AND MAN. After all, there are "billions and billions" of stars which perhaps have planets, which perhaps have civilizations etc. However, within the classification of angels [non- human or "alien" intelligent beings] exist diverse myriads. The concept of an ANGEL comes from the Greek aggelos from the Hebrew ago meaning "one going forth" or "one leading"; messenger. Not all angels are "good". Not all angels continue to do God's will, although all angels were originally created by God to convey His message. Some angels rebelled against God's plan. Some angels go forth to give their own message; some angels go forth to lead mankind AWAY from the truth. But all angels are more intelligent and powerful beings than mere humans, it is easy to see how the rebellious angels could have been worshipped as gods, when they descended to the Earth before the Flood, and deceived humans (Genesis 6).
 
The angels are represented throughout the Bible as a body of spiritual beings who intermediate between God and men: "For thou hast made him (man) a little lower than the angels" (Psalm 8:5). Angels, just as mankind, are created beings; "Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.... Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created. He commanded and they were created" (Psalm 148:2, 5: Colossians 1:16, 17). Contrary to popular belief, the Bible does not say that the only intelligent beings populating the universe are humans, in fact God created countless "non- human intelligent beings" before mankind. God is known throughout the Bible as the LORD OF HOSTS: Dominion and fear are with him, he maketh peace in his high places. Is there any number of his armies? and upon whom doth not his light arise?--Job 25:2-3
 
Among these myriads of angels are those who follow their own rebellious plan instead of God's. Those rebel angels -- who appear in many guises, from ghosts to aliens to "Blessed Virgin Mary" or BVM apparitions like Fatima -- are the intelligent non-human beings behind UFOs and the paranormal. *THEY* have a plan, their message is a deceptive one.

" [The occultist] is brought into intelligent communication with the spirits of the air, and can receive any knowledge which they possess, or any false impression they choose to impart...the demons seem permitted to do various wonders at their request." - G.H. Pember, "Earth's Earliest Ages and Their Connection with Modern Spiritualism and Theosophy" (1876)
"UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it... the modern UFO -nauts and the demons of past days are probably identical." -Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1
"The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demon -ological phenomenon..." - John A. Keel, "UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse"

The ancient deity Baal was "Lord of War" and "Lord of the Sky". Many titles were given to Baal by adding endings to his name. Some examples found in scripture are Baalhazor "Lord of the Fortresses", Baalbamoth = Lord of the high places, Baalzebub = Lord of those who fly, or, flit. Zebub is a Hebrew verb which means to flit from place to place , having been popularly translated as "Lord of the Flies" it is more properly rendered "Lord of Those Things that Fly".
 
Intelligent beings who live in the atmosphere around and above the Earth are under the authority of the Lord of Flying Things, the Prince of the Power of the Air. Baal is identified as Satan by Jesus himself, Matt.10:25 Mark. 3:22 Luke 11:15. Paul says we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, with spirits in high places, literally, "in the heavens" "in the aerial regions" Eph.6:12. Hence Satan is called "the prince of the Power of the Air" "the prince of the aerial host" Eph.2:2. Imagine the confederation of rebellious angels seated in the atmospheric heaven in the spaces above and around our planet. This fundamental of scripture contradicts many traditional concepts of "hell" as the domain of the devil and his minions... the popular notion of "satan ruling the underworld" is not found in the Bible.
 
While the New Testament uses the Greek word "demon" to refer to these "sons of the mighty", the Old Testament uses revealing descriptive names. Words which describe these beings, such as b'nai Elohim meaning "sons of God", Zophim meaning "the watchers", and Malakh meaning "messengers", (this reference was translated angel in English), are used for the "aerial host" often regardless of alignment. The Book of Enoch tells us the origin of certain "interdimensional intelligences" -- called in the monotheistic New Testament "demons", who were understandably associated with evil because originally the Greek term diamon meant "any deity" -- was in the Days of Noah, and didn't end with the Flood but continued according to Genesis 6, "even after". There are three main terms for demons in the New Testament: daimonion (demon; 60 times, 50 in the Gospels); pneuma (spirit; some 52 times) usually with a qualifying adjective such as akatharton (unclean; 21 times) or poneron (evil; 8 times); and angelos (7 times of demonic agencies). Daimon (demon), the term commonly used in classical Greek, appears only once (Mark 8:31) (From Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Walter A. Elwell (Ed))
 
Jesus Christ explained to His apostles what events would immediately precede His second coming, "It shall be exactly as in the days before Noah entered the ark". Matt 24:38 , Luke 17:27. What is the significance of this statement and how does it relate to Ufos? The Flood epic Gen. 6 begins with a strange account of the "sons of God" (b'nai Elohim), taking wives from among the daughters of Adam. In those days giants [nephilim] were in the earth, the men of renown of whom ancient tales are told. "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."
 
The word which is translated, "giants", in the King James version of the Bible is, in Hebrew, "Nephilim", which means, "Those who fell, or ... the fallen ones". Jude, the brother of Jesus describes them as "angels, having left their first estate in heaven". These fallen angels came to earth for their own purposes, to interfere in the development of human civilization.
 
Scripture uses other names to describe these degraded fallen angels and their descendents in addition to the word Nephilim, they are...
Rephaim - from the root rapha = spirits, shades Gen. 14:5
Anakim - race of giants Num. 13:33 descendents of Nephilim
Emim - the proud deserters, terrors, race of giants Gen. 14:5
Zuzim- the evil ones, roaming things Gen. 14:5
Zamzummims - the evil plotters, Deut. 2:20
Zophim - watchers, angels who descended Num. 23, distinct from "holy watchers" aligned with God
Sepherim - the many. . . .
The book of Jubilees remarks that Jared or Yeh-red, an Old Testament patriarch, was so called because in his days the angels descended upon the earth - Yaw-rad means "descend". It is interesting to note that "Jordan" comes from that same root word denoting "descent, coming down or falling" - Yar-dane "the place of the descent". The source of the Jordan river is Mount Hermon - the point of descent of the Watchers. Mt. Hermon resides in the ancient land formally known as "Sidonia". The super-human angelic beings descended, created hybrid offspring with human women, the "nephilim" and mighty men of renknown preserved in ancient myths. The source for the dispersion of angelic "alien" technology, and the Hermetic knowledge that influenced human civilization since the days of Noah, was Sidonia / Cydonia.
 
The symbolism surrounding the coming End of the Aion in 2012 suggests perhaps another "descent" is approaching. The time & location should not be a mystery as it has been looked for, advanced & ardently pursued by the Mystery Schools for centuries, from its earliest advocacy in the Edfu Texts to the current wizardry going on at NASA.
 
It's incremental acclimatization! "Why Israel?" UFOs in Mid-East Israel and Jordan UFO Flap (first posted in 1996, perhaps outdated but the Israel flap continues even into 2003)
 
The book of the Jubilees remarks that Jared or Yeh-red, an Old Testament patriarch, was so called because in his days the angels descended upon the earth -Yaw-rad "descend". It is interesting to note that "Jordan" comes from that same root word denoting "descent, coming down or falling" - Yar-dane "the place of the descent". Jordan, "place of the descent", is located in the ancient boundary of Israel. Israel is currently a major location for sighting UFOs, and the fallen angels in disguise as "aliens".
 
Speculation on the nature of the "alien presence" is increasing...and the public acclimatization continues.
 
Aleister Crowley was a noted occultist who styled himself The Beast 666 (albeit as a fashion statement). A key member in several hermetic brotherhoods, Crowley wrote "How-To" guides on magick and contacting angels. Crowley was in contact with higher intelligences, writing "The Book of the Law" in Cairo in 1904 at the behest of a being called Aiwass. The being's name is intriguingly similar to Egyptian Antiquities expert Zahi Hawass, both derived from Horus. It was Crowley's goal through ritual magick and contact with non-human intelligent beings [angels or aliens] to bring to fruition the New Aeon of Horus. In 1919 Crowley drew a picture of an "extra-terrestrial" Intelligence with whom he was in astral contact, named Lam. This drawing of Lam -- which looks tellingly like a classic "grey alien" -- appeared in an exhibition held in Greenwich Village, New York, 1919.
 
From noted author and UFOlogist John Keel, Operation Trojan Horse p. 215, 216:
 "Throughout most of history, the manifestations of demonology and demonopathy have been viewed from a religious perspective and explained as the work of the Devil.The bizarre manipulation and ill effects described in the demonological literature are usually regarded as the results of a great unseen conflict between God and the Devil. In UFO lore, the same conflict has been observed and the believers have explained it as a space war between the "Guardians" (good guys from outer space), who are protecting our planet, and some evil extraterrestrial race. The manifestations are the same, only the referenceis different. Did ancient man misinterpret UFO manifestations by placing them in religious context? Apparently not.The literature indicates that the phenomenon carefully cultivated the religious frame of reference in early times, just as the modern manifestations have carefully supported the extraterrestrial frame of reference. OperationTrojan Horse is merely the same old game in a new, updated guise. The Devil's emissaries of yesteryear have been replaced by mysterious "men in black." The quasi-angels of Biblical times have become magnificent spacemen. Thedemons, devils, and false angels were recognized as liars and plunderers by early man. The same imposters now appear as long-haired Venusians."
John Keel theorizes that all angelic manifestations in the Bible were simply the same beings now claiming to be aliens. While Keel himself points out that these deceptive beings populating the atmosphere throughout mankind's history are artful MIMICS & MASTERS OF DISGUISE... he misses the point with this generalization. There are many different kinds of angels.
 
In the Bible there are both encounters with Godly angels doing His will, and encounters with rebellious angels who seek to lead mankind astray and undermine God's credibility. The qualities of God's angels are of course shared by their rebellious counterparts. Since God's angels manifest in miraculous ways, it is no surprise that the angels who "do their own thing" manifest in miraculous ways as well.
 
One might ask, "if rebel angels can imitate Godly miracles, how can one tell if angels are of God or rebellious? Couldn't they all be the same?" This is the confusion satan's minions have always sown. Keel,Sitchen, and many alternative UFOlogists fail to realize the very obvious distinction between God's angelic messengers and the deceptive manifestations of fallen angels. God's messengers always acted within the confines of God's Word, that is, their actions and the results of their actions were always Biblically, Lawfully, consistant. The results of interaction with an angel of God left the visitee with no doubts about the Biblical God, nor His revealed Word. In contrast, contact with "angelic" aliens and occult entities casts doubt on the validity of the Bible and leaves confusion concerning God's identity. Godly angelic encounters always gave glory to God and confirmed His Word, while deceptive angelic encounters, occult manifestations and aliens, lead humans away from God into increased occultism, self-deification, self-actualization, human potential, and a complete disregard for the validity of the Bible.
 
Rebel angels can take on any form they please, even appearing as angels of light.The deceptive rebel angels often appear to humans in SEEMINGLY benign guises: as the enlightening angel to Mohammed, as the angel Moroni to Joseph Smith, in disguise as the Virgin Mary in apparitions, and disguised as Enlightening Alien Space Brothers.
 
"MARY SIGHTINGS" ARE DISTURBINGLY SIMILAR TO UFO SIGHTINGS.

VATICAN SPOKESMAN BALDUCCI SAYS "ALIENS ARE REAL...AND WE SHOULD TURN THEM INTO CATHOLICS." Corrado Balducci is the Vatican's official spokesperson for UFOs and Ets. He's also their leading Exercist/Demonologist. Coincidence?
 
WHY THIS WON'T WORK!
 
Jesus Christ is called the KINSMAN REDEEMER. Jesus did not come to save the apes & dolphins, He did not come to save the puppies & kitties, and He certainly did not come to save the Zeta Reticulans or the Alien Grays.The atonement work of Jesus was only to save His kinsman, the sons of Adam. If a being is not a descendent of Adam, this being -- no matter how intelligent-- will not take part in the promise of Jesus Christ. Watcher 's research confirms that there are beings who are genetically similar to the race of Adams, but have been genetically tampered with by rebel angels, or engineered to be superior humans in some illuminated laboratory. These hybrids are not capable of "being saved" by the grace of the Kinsman Redeemer, for they are not His kinsman...  This increase in humans who are not genetically sons of Adam is a symptom of the end times, just as in the days of Noah when Nephilim walked the earth among humans.
 
If Christians are speculating whether or not aliens can be saved, they are just adding to the confusion. "Aliens" are really disembodied angels -- the rebellious angels who according to Jude left their God-given habitation to dwell in genetically manipulated hybrid bodies just prior to the Flood ... the Nephilim of Genesis 6.
 
Read this strange account of the Gulf Breeze Six--fellows who tellingly got info to go to a UFO hot spot from an occult source. Now why would deceptive spirits communicating through a OUIJA board (the method through which demons first communicated with Regan in the Exorcist, by the way) tell anyone to wait for UFOs to show up...UNLESS UFO'S ARE RELATED TO THE DEMONIC AGENDA OF THE SPIRIT WORLD.
 
Crop circles are either created by skilled humans, or by the ufo craft that are often said to be seen near crop circles. If humans have created these, they are very Illuminated humans, illustrating obscure mathematical relationships and esoteric concepts. The two crop circles on this page show the planets and the asteroid belt -- perhaps designed as human tribute to the planetary dieties revered in Kabalah and Alchemy.  If supernatural in origin,  the rebel angels seem to be indicating the location of their lost kingdom in the heavens -- their lost Golden Age --  when angels ruled the solar system and there were not yet Adams  to usurp their dominion. It is interesting that a major component in occultism is a longing for the Lost Atlantis (Mu, Shamballah or even Eden Regained) - a utopia of peace and high technology.
 
"Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire." (Ezekiel 28:14)
 
When Satan rebelled, God cast him as profane from the height of heaven. Because of his rebellion, Satan was destroyed from the midst of the STONES OF FIRE, the planets, where he had reigned over literal physical kingdoms. Evidence of the civilization on Mars can still be seen, while another civilization of B'nai ha Elohim was destroyed thoroughly, becoming the asteroid belt. It is not surprising that a two-faced Sphinx has been found amongst theruins of Mars. Lucifer is the most powerful Cherubim, and the Biblical description of a cherub can be illustrated by a Sphinx. David Flynn's research into Bible references of Satan & Cherubim on Literal Planets - THE STONES OF FIRE.
 
My friend David summed it all up this way, QUOTE, " When we compare what people describe UFO's and ET experiences with the scriptures, it becomes obvious that the Bible is telling us that these things are demonic in nature. Test the spirits....
 
An example from ...the movie The Fourth Kind...the alien speaking through the guy on video tape says "I will enforce my will..." Hmmm....who said "I will, I will..." in Isaiah 14?
 
Peter Ruckman, in his commentary on Revelation, said something very interesting about angels. He said that the definition of angel is more than just 'messenger' in Rev. 2 and 3. Angels are more than messengers -- they wage war, the kill, they bring judgment, and a whole bunch of other things.
 
Ruckman said the blanket definition of an angel is "appearance." In every instance, the angel appears to do something. Apply it to any passage and it makes sense:
 
The angel of the Lord is an 'appearance of the Lord.'
An angel of light is an 'appearance' of light. Get it? It 'appears' to be light...
 
So, my point: Paul said, Gal 1:8 But though we, or AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
 
Get that? An angel, or AN APPEARANCE FROM HEAVEN? If anything appears from heaven (like an alien or UFO) and preaches any other gospel, it is accursed!
 
The idea of aliens attacks faith in Christ and the authority of scripture." END-QUOTE by David.
 
What about the "Extra" Biblical Books, that support the Bible(KJV)?:
 
What about the Book of Enoch and the Book of Jasher? The KJV mentions it in two places the Book of Jasher and once for Enoch in the book of Jude:
 
"Is it not written in the Book of Jasher?" --Joshua 10:13.
 
"Behold, it is written in the Book of Jasher." --2 Samuel 1:18.
 
"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints"--Jude 1:14
 
I can explain this. I am KJV-ONLY, but this is weird...Should we still read some extra biblical books like The Book of Enoch and The Book of Jasher?
 
Also, I read this on a website that supports the KJV: (The Book of Jubilees is a book of antiquity; Did you know that the Book of Jubilees and the Book of Enoch have always been canon since the time of Christ in the Ethiopian Bible?
 Enoch I and Enoch II are must reading for the student of church history. Here is where I discovered the Grigori, Watchers, Nephilim, Gibborim, Phoenixes, Chalkidri, and the ten classes of good and bad angels.)
 
The people that attack these couple of extra biblical books I mentioned say this; QUOTE, "The word "Jasher" means "the book of the upright". It is a reference to the book of Joshua, NOT to some other book written by men. The supposed "book of Enoch" was actually written by Gnostics. It is also NOT part of the Bible." End-Quote. If that is true, then why wouldn't of God just have said the book of Joshua??? Lets check this out.
 
Can this be explain? Yes! Dr. Scott Johnson reccomends only one translation of the Book of Enoch; the Recommended Book of Enoch with KJV Cross References is
The Book of Enoch by Ronald K. Brown (Hardcover - Jan 3, 2000)
Buy new: $34.95
**Christian readers will no doubt prefer and appreciate Pastor Ron Brown's fine work. Published by a Baptist theological press, almost every page of this edition is cross-referenced with over 300 King James scriptures, Old and New Testaments.
 
Dr. Johnson’s Comment: The Book on Enoch is referenced/quoted in the book of Jude (see below) but I always preface (when dealing with the book of Enoch) that it is not Scripture (Not a Canonical Text).  I only recommend the version listed above with the over 300 KJV cross references that confirms the Bible.
 
Jud 1:14
"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, "
 
Jud 1:15
"To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him."
 
Compare this with Enoch 1:9 which says: "And behold! He cometh with ten thousands of His holy ones To execute judgement upon all, And to destroy all the ungodly: And to convict all flesh Of all the works of their ungodliness which they have ungodly committed, And of all the hard things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
The Book of Enoch listed above also references other parts of the Bible where this verse is fulfilled: 
 
Rev 19:11
"And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war." 
 
Rev 19:12
"His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. "
 
Rev 19:13
"And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God."
 
Rev 19:14
"And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean."

For all you people that don't know about this kind of stuff. I am gonna lay a quick foundation for you about the Nephilim.
 
"Nephilim" is a transliteration of the Hebrew. The reason it doesn't say "Nephilim" in the KJV is because they did a translation! The newer versions like the NIV and NASB and others just leave the word untranslated. That is wrong, because it leaves it open for anyone to interput how they want. Kind of like how most of the newer versions don't translate the "Hell" either. In the OT the word "Hell" comes from the Hebrew word שְׁאוֹל , the transliteration of the word would be "Sheol" and the translation would be "Hell." In the NT Hell comes from the Greek word ᾍδης, the transliteration of the word would be "Hades" and the translations of the word would be "Hell." When they don't translate the word to Hell it leaves it open to interputation, and when people look up the word "Hades" they get a whole different meaning of the word; alot of Pagan overtones and mythological meanings instead of what the Bible describes "Hell" to be! Let me give you an example; Hades would be described as a Geek underworld for the dead. There is way more aspects to this underworld but would take a whole book to explain them all lol but for now, lets just say it's nothing like How the Bible describes Hell to be!!
 
The Bible describes Hell as the second death. A lake which burneth with fire and brimstone forEVER with weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth; and the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, and where their worm dieth not, and the fire is NEVER quenched!
 
Do you see how by not translating a word can be very dangerious? By leaving the transliteration instead of the translation leaves alot of wiggle room for liberals Christians to twist the Bible. For example, Billy Graham has came to the conclusion that Hell is not on fire. Now thats heresey, and will leave many not even afriad to go to Hell.
 
Now, back to the word "Nephilim." The word from the hebrew is נְפִילִים , the transliteration is "Nephilim" and the proper translation as rendered by the KJV is "Giants, mighty men which were of old, men of renown." The word Nephilim derives from the Hebrew root npl (נָפַל), "to fall" which also includes "to cause to fall" and "to kill, to ruin". The Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon gives the meaning as "giants."
 
So, with that said (I had to lay the foundation down for you), I will break this down for you now. Always in the OT, the phrase "sons of God" always referred to Angels. The NT is the only time the "sons of God" is in reference to Born-Again Christians. Thats why CONTEX is very important. So the NT phrase of "sons of God" = Born-Again Christians.The OT phrase of "sons of God" = Angels! 100% of the time in the OT the term "sons of God" is in reference to Angels! Let me give you an Example of this. In the Book of Job, we read:
 
"Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it."-- Job 1:6-7
 
It's talking about Angels there, because there is no way possible a man could come with Satan to present himself before the LORD! The Bible says NO MAN has seen the Father and lived, and to be absent from the Body is to be present with the LORD, and that it is appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgment.
 
Now lets go to Genesis 6, and it should make alot more sense to you now:
 
"[1] And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,[2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.[3] And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.[4] There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.[5] And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.[6] And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.[7] And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.[8] But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.[9] These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." --Genesis 6:1-9
 
You just read in there that there were "giants" in the earth in those days and the "sons of God" came in unto the "daughters of men", and "they bare children to them", the same became [Nephilim] mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
 
Lets look at verse 4 again and every thing i put in brackets "[]" will be my words explaing this more to you:
 
"There were "giants"-[Nephilim] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the "sons of God"-[Angels or in this case Fallen Angels] came in unto the "daughters of men"-[female earthly HUMANs], and "they"-[human females/daughters of men] bare children to them {the children were the "Nephilim" or half Angel, half human hybrids} , the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.{They were giants, and this is also were all the mythological stories of gods comes from, these hybrids}"
 
And to prove they were literal "GIANTS" that the Bible was talking about here, we can compair scripture with scripture and read in the book of Numbers "And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight."--Numbers 13:33
 
Now lets look at why Satan had this happen. Satan had Angels to fall and mate with Humans to corrupts the DNA or seed to try and prevent the Massiah(Jesus Christ) from ever being born. In the Garden of Eden, after the serpent(Lucifer/Satan) had Eve eat the forbidden fruit and fall. God made the very first Prophecy about Jesus, God said to the serpent:
 
"And I will put enmity between thee-[the serpent/Satan] and the woman-[Eve], and between thy seed-[Serpent/Satan's seed] and her seed-[DNA/Seed of man]; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."--Genesis 3:15.
 
Satan remembered that promise from God to him and tryed to corrupt the DNA of man by having Fallen Angels mate with human women to corrupt the DNA/Seed of man to prevent the Messiah(Jesus) from being born.
 
So back to Genesis 6, in verses 8 and 9 we read:
 
"But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations [i.e. his GENETICS], and Noah walked with God." --Genesis 6:8-9"
 
It said Noah was PERFECT in his GENERATIONS! We know that Noah wasn't perfect, because no man was ever perfect except Jesus Christ, so what does that mean here? It means his DNA/Seed was PERFECT and wasn't corrupted or fused with hybrid fallen Angelic DNA. Generations = Offspring or Seed/DNA. (i.e. his GENETICS)
 
So Noah was perfect in his generations! [i.e. his GENETICS]
 
Now, lets look at some other verses in the Bible that shows Fallen Angels (sons of God) mated with humans and had "Nephilim" offspring which were Half Angel, Half Human hybrids.
 
"And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay." --Daniel 2:43
 
"And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day." -- Jude 1:6
 
So you may ask, what happened to the "Nephilim" after the flood, after God killed them. The disembodied spirits of the Nephilim are demons, which work with Satan and the other Fallen Angels to try to lead the human race astray (through idolatry, the occult, etc.) until the final Judgment. Why do you think it is called "Demon Possession?" Because Demons are different then Fallen Angels! Demons are called "devils" in the KJV. That's why in the Bible (KJV) talks about "devils" always seeking a body it may inhabit, because they are the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim.
 
Also, outside of the Bible, there is some extra Biblical work about all this. The story of the Nephilim is chronicled more fully in the Book of Enoch. The Greek, Aramaic, and main Ge'ez manuscripts of 1 Enoch and Jubilees obtained in the 19th century and held in the British Museum and Vatican Library, connect the origin of the Nephilim with the fallen angels, and in particular with the egrḗgoroi (watchers). Samyaza, an angel of high rank, is described as leading a rebel sect of angels in a descent to earth to have sexual intercourse with human females:
 
"And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children.' And Semjaza, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin.' And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it. And they were in all two hundred; who descended in the days of Jared on the summit of Mount Hermon, and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it..."
 
According to these texts, the fallen angels who begat the Nephilim were cast into Tartarus (Greek Enoch 20:2), a place of 'total darkness'. However, Jubilees also states that God granted ten percent of the disembodied spirits of the Nephilim to remain after the flood, as demons, to try to lead the human race astray (through idolatry, the occult, etc.) until the final Judgment.
 
In addition to Enoch, the Book of Jubilees (7:21–25) also states that ridding the Earth of these Nephilim was one of God's purposes for flooding the Earth in Noah's time. These works describe the Nephilim as being evil giants.
 
Targum Pseudo-Jonathan identifies the Nephilim as Shemihaza and the angels in the name list from 1 Enoch. b Yoma 67, PRE22 and 1 QapGen ar ii 1 also identify the Nephilim as the angels that fell.
 
In the New Testament Epistle of Jude 14-15 cites from 1 Enoch 1:9, which many scholars believe is based on Deuteronomy 33:2. To most commentators this confirms that the author of Jude regarded the Enochic interpretations of Genesis 6 as correct, however others have questioned this.
 
Also, in the Bible(KJV) there are 3 different races of Nephilim. The "Emim" (the fearful ones), The "Rephaim" (the dead ones), and the "Anakim" (the long-necked ones.)
 
Even after the flood were God killed ever thing except Noah and his family and the animals he took on the ark. There were Nephilim even after that, read verse 4 again from Genesis 6:
 
"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that,"
 
Notice is says, "and also after that." There are Nephilim that walk the earth today. There not giants like they were back then because Satan has materminded how to manipulate the DNA. Why do you think we have all these Alien obductions? And people talk abnout them doing all sorts of medical experiments on them.
 
The Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2 verse 3, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" and goes on to say in ...verses 4-12:
"4Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, [the Bible says here that Satan has all power and signs and lying wonders. Just ponder that for a sec]
10And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."
 
We also read in Matthew 24:37, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
 
I hope this answeres any questions, if not let me know and I will try to answer anymore questions you have on this matter. God bless you all my brothers and sisters in Christ!
 
The Apocrypha was originally included in between the Old and New Testaments for HISTORICAL purposes. They made it clear these were NOT inspired scriptures. They later removed them so this assumption would not be made.
 
The Apocrypha were discounted as scripture because they were not found to be written originally in the original langauges ie Hebrew or Greek NOR were they recognized by the Early Church ie in Antioch or Jerusalem nor were they recognized by Jews. They were clearly a collection of works of Catholic pagan origin and as such they may have some historical value (I sincerely doubt that!) they are in no way shape or form to be considered as part of the real Bible or of any scriptural value or significance. I personally would rather read or study the works atrributed to be the Book of Enoch, the Book of Jasher etc both of which are quoted from by Jesus, Job, Jude etc in the Bible although I don't equate them with the canon of scripture recognized as the Bible nor their equivalent. The point is Jesus could have quoted from the phone book had Thomas Edison invented the phone by the time of Christ in His earthly incarnation as the Son of Man & the Son of God walking among humanity. He could have quoted from Webster's had their been a dictionary at the time, but in either case it doesn't necessarily make them scripture. Iam sure Josephus was a good souce of news, facts and other items, but his works are in no way equivalent to scripture even though there is much truth to be found there in his reporting listed in his works which every studious Christian shoukd avail themselves to. In short the Apocrypha fall short of factual foundation in the majority of cases and they are not written with the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit nor with the Authorship or Authority of God's Word!
 
So the extra Biblical books like Enoch, Jasher and Jubilees CAN be used by God and do have value; God just didn't want them in His canon (the 66 books) of His Holy Bible.
 
My next statement, I can't prove this but this is a theory of mine. I think the book of Enoch is Inspired and God left the book of Enoch out of the Bible on purpose, as part of the comming END TIME STRONG Delusion and great deception that is coming. Consider what God said to the Prophet Daniel, "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased."--Daniel 12:4.
This infomation, wasn't ment for any other time except now, for us in the LAST OF DAYS! And God is weeding out all the people that would believe a lie and accept other gods over Him. Remember God said, "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness."--2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. And "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."--Matthew 24:24.
 
Consider this, the book of Enoch has been preserved in the Ethiopian Bible for the last 500 years. Remember, Phillip started the Ethiopian Eunuch. And I think God preserved it through them because Ethiopia is a 3rd world country and knew the Power Elite wouldn't care muich about them to look there.
 
We must remember that Satan does not know when Christ is scheduled to come back to earth. He knows what will happen, but he does not know when. Consequently he must always have someone inplace to play the role of Antichrist and false prophet should the need arise.
 
"There has been a plan in effect since at least 1917 to create, create, an artificial Extraterrestrial threat to the planet Earth, so as to bring about a one-world, Luciferian Totalitarian socialist government. This Extraterrestrial propaganda has been promoted through movies, through books, in the newspapers; so as to create the idea in the public mind that this phenomena related to Extraterrestrials is real and that the threat is real." -- William Cooper
 
"In our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think, how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask is not an alien force ALREADY among us?" "There are only a handful of people who know the truth about this." --Ronald Reagan to a full session of the United Nations, September 21, 1987
 
Here is a QUOTE from "The Watcher Website", QUITE, "The Watcher Website first began distributing pamphlets on the UFO phenomena and ranting on usenet & Prodigy back in 1991, putting up webpages using quotes from Strieber's "Communion", I.D.E. Thomas' "The Omega Conspiracy: Satan's Last Assault On God's Kingdom" and the prescient book that sparked our research, G.H. Pember 's "Earth's Earliest Ages and Their Connection with Modern Spiritualism and Theosophy" (1876). We had no idea that so much information would be available via the internet, nor could we have foreseen how popular the topic of UFOs & the Bible or Angels vs. Aliens would become. David Flynn and the rest of us here at watcherwebsite picked through our Strong 's Concordance, and studied passages like Genesis 6 in the Interlinear Bible, way back in the day, long before Chuck Missler & Dr. Mark Eastman published "Alien Encounters" -- a book which we also recommend for those looking for a starting point when first delving into these topics.
 
Watcher website has always been obsessed with the End of the Age, the Book of Revelation or Saint John 's Apocalypse, the coming of antichrist and his global religion, and how he would fool everyone -- afterall, our generation grew up on The Omen , we heard how we weren't supposed to play our Led Zeppelin albums backward because of the Satanic messages. We have been on the lookout for 666. Who in our cynical age would ever "worship" a political leader, unless he had some supernatural powers that went beyond mere magic? The only way we could foresee the whole world coming together and agreeing that one ruler should take over political, economic and spiritual control of the earth would be if there was a system, a paradigm, set up to welcome antichrist with open arms. That system, we concluded, was the Star Trek / Star Wars paradigm, a galactic brotherhood of aliens who will appear to earthlings, and claim to be the gods and angels that were written about in the ancient texts of all the world religions. Even Bible believing Christians would have to re-evaluate their beliefs, if Erich von Daniken 's Chariots of the Gods" -- and the more credible scientific research of Richard C. Hoagland 's "Monuments of Mars" -- turned out to be valid. The end time scenario of a global apocalyptic threat like World War III or a possible asteroid collision, would make people likely to give up their petty fighting over primitive religious beliefs when confronted with the "salvation of the planet" via a political leader who worked hand in hand with "the aliens". Watcher concluded that aliens SEEMINGLY from another planet would be the only thing that could unite earthlings under one ruler, the antichrist. There is a Biblical precendent for linking UFOs and aliens with the coming of antichrist and End Time Prophecy. Watcher discusses this throughout the website. This article was first written c.1991 to address the increasingly significant SPIRITUAL ASPECT OF UFOs & RAMIFICATIONS OF ALIEN INTELLIGENCE WITH RESPECT TO RELIGION, ESPECIALLY AS DESCRIBED IN BIBLE * END TIMES * PROPHECY."

"A large part of the available UFO literature is closely linked with mysticism and the metaphysical. It deals with subjects like mental telepathy, automatic writing and invisible entities as well as phenomena like poltergeist [ghost] manifestation and possession. Many of the UFO reports now being published in the popular press recount alleged incidents that are strikingly similar to demonic possession and psychic phenomena." - Lynn E. Catoe, UFOs and Related Subjects: USGPO, 1969; prepared under AFOSR Project Order 67-0002 and 68-0003
"But the UFO phenomenon simply does not behave like extraterrestrial visitors. It actually molds itself in order to fit a given culture." - John Ankerberg, The Facts on UFOs and Other Supernatural Phenomena p. 10
"UFO behaviour is more akin to magic than to physics as we know it ... the modern UFOnauts and the demons of past days are probably identical." -Dr. Pierre Guerin, FSR Vol. 25, No. 1, p. 13-14
"The UFO manifestations seem to be, by and large, merely minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon..." - John A. Keel, "UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse" p. 299
"The 'medical examination' to which abductees are said to be subjected, often accompanied by sadistic sexual manipulation, is reminiscient of the medieval tales of encounters with demons. It makes no sense in a sophisticated or technical framework: any intelligent being equipped with the scientific marvels that UFOs possess would be in a position to achieve any of these alleged scientific objectives in a shorter time and with fewer risks." - Dr. Jacques Vallee, Confrontations p. 13
"The symbolic display seen by the abductees is identical to the type of initiation ritual or astral voyage that is imbedded in the [occult] traditions of every culture...the structure of abduction stories is identical to that of occult initiation rituals...the UFO beings of today belong to the same class of manifestation as the [occult] entities that were described in centuries past." - Dr. Jacques Vallee citing the extensive research of Bertrand Meheust [Science-Fiction et Soucoupes Volantes (Paris, 1978); Soucoupes Volantes et Folklore (Paris, 1985)], in Confrontations p. 146, 159-161
"[The occultist] is brought into intelligent communication with the spirits of the air, and can receive any knowledge which they possess, or any false impression they choose to impart ... the demons seem permitted to do various wonders at their request."

"These entities are clever enough to make Strieber think they care about him. Yet his torment by them never ceases. Whatever his relationship to the entities, and he increasingly concludes that their involvement with him is something 'good,' he also remains terrified of them and uncertain as to what they are." - John Ankerberg, The Facts on UFOs and Other Supernatural Phenomena p. 21
"I became entirely given over to extreme dread. The fear was so powerful that it seemed to make my personality completely evaporate... 'Whitley' ceased to exist. What was left was a body and a state of raw fear so great that it swept about me like a thick, suffocating curtain, turning paralysis into a condition that seemed close to death... I died and a wild animal appeared in my place." - Whitley Strieber, Communion p. 25-26
 
"Increasingly I felt as if I were entering a struggle that might even be more than life and death. It might be a struggle for my soul, my essence, or whatever part of me might have reference to the eternal. There are worse things than death, I suspected... so far the word demon had never been spoken among the scientists and doctors who were working with me... Alone at night I worried about the legendary cunning of demons ... At the very least I was going stark, raving mad." - Whitley Strieber, Transformation p. 44-45
"I felt an absolutely indescribable sense of menace. It was hell on earth to be there [in the presence of the entities], and yet I couldn't move, couldn't cry out, couldn't get away. I'd lay as still as death, suffering inner agonies. Whatever was there seemed so monstrously ugly, so filthy and dark and sinister. Of course they were demons. They had to be. And they were here and I couldn't get away." - Whitley Strieber, Transformation p. 181
"Why were my visitors so secretive, hiding themselves behind my consciousness. I could only conclude that they were using me and did not want me to know why... What if they were dangerous? Then I was terribly dangerous because I was playing a role in acclimatizing people to them." - Whitley Strieber, Transformation p. 96
"..If for the sake of argument we grant that life on Earth was seeded by ancient extraterrestrials, then the obvious question is , Who or what created our extraterrestrials creators? Some would argue that they were, in turn sprinkled (created) by an even more ancient race of ET's. Well, where did they come from? An infinite regression back in time of "alien sprinklings" will not do, because the universe is finite.." published Missler & Eastman, Alien Encounters p.141.
"We believe that the cultural preparations (or deliberate conditioning) of the world to view our alien visitors as powerful and highly evolved saviors makes the UFO phenomena the perfect motif for the Antichrist to exploit when he ascends to power. His ability to perform supernatural signs and wonders, his comprehensive plan for the peaceful unification of mankind and his connection to or origin from god-like alien entities will engender the masses to follow him into the biggest deception in history." - published Missler & Eastman, Alien Encounters pp. 295-296
 
Satan-Prince of the Power of the Air, Lord of those that Fly, Intelligence behind UFO manifestations and alien encounters
 
To link the rebellious Sons of God who inhabited the heavenly places , the atmosphere and beyond, to the current non-human intelligent beings we see more and more frequently, so-called "aliens", is not such a large step. Many advanced beings hint at angelic origin in their contact with humans through abductions and channeling. If the so-called aliens and their mysterious craft are not themselves the rebel b'nai Elohim, they are at least under the jurisdiction of Satan, the Prince of the Power of the Air. The causes behind UFO sightings, abductions, and other paranormal phenomena are more malignant and awesome than any theory scientists have proposed . The tribulation, or End Times will officially begin when (Dan.9:27) Israel signs a treaty with the head of the government of unified Europe to establish a Jewish temple in Jerusalem and resume the ancient sacrificial system of worship there.
 
The man who signs this treaty for Israel will be unique, he will be believed by many to be the long awaited Messiah of the Jews. Bible prophecy calls him the Antichrist. This Antichrist is described in detail in scripture. Careful investigation of these texts reveal a connection between Antichrist and the phenomena of UFOS.
 
Daniel 11 describes the Antichrist:
"37Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers(YHWH/JEHOVAH), nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces (the Hebrew phrase is, Ala Mahozine),: and a god whom his fathers (the Jews) knew not (literally, AN ALIEN GOD)."
 
Baalhazor "Lord of the fortresses" provides a connection between Baal and the god of the Antichrist. Baal was lord of war and of the sky. Many titles were given to Baal by adding endings to his name. Some examples found in scripture are Baalbamoth = Lord of the high places, Baalzebub= Lord of those who fly, or, flit. Zebub is a Hebrew verb which means to flit from place to place. Baal is identified as Satan by Jesus himself, Matt.10:25 Mark. 3:22 Luke 11:15. The Antichrist will honor Satan, called Baal, Lord of Fortresses, Lord of the High Places , Lord of those who quickly fly (in the high places), Prince of the Power of the Air, and obviously Prince of the Power behind flying craft in the high places...ufos.
 
Incredibly, the Bible explains where Satan currently resides, and connects him with forces in the atmosphere. . . Paul says we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers, with wicked spirits in high places, literally, "in the heavens" "in the aerial regions" Eph.6:12. Hence Satan is called "the prince of the Power of the air" "the prince of the aerial host" Eph.2:2. The confederation of rebel angels is seated in the atmospheric heaven in the spaces above and around our world. This fundamental of scripture contradicts many traditional concepts of "hell" as the domain of the devil and his minions . King David recognized this fully when he wrote: For who in the sky (the atmosphere) shall be ranked with Jehovah, who among the sons of the mighty is like Jehovah? Psalm 89:6
While the New Testament uses the Greek word "demon" to refer to these "sons of the mighty", the Old Testament uses revealing descriptive names. Words which describe these beings, such as b'nai Elohim, "sons of God", Zophim, "the watchers", and Malakh, "messengers", (translated angel in English), are used for the "aerial host" often regardless of alignment. New Testament demons were understandably associated with evil, since originally the Greek term diamon meant "any deity", and the Bible consistently portrays only one God. There are three main terms for demons in the New Testament: daimonion (demon; 60 times, 50 in the Gospels); pneuma (spirit; some 52 times) usually with a qualifying adjective such as akatharton (unclean; 21 times) or poneron (evil; 8 times); and angelos (7 times of demonic agencies). Daimon (demon), the term commonly used in classical Greek, appears only once (Mark 8:31) (Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Walter A. Elwell (Ed))
 
Scripture explains that Satan and his host of fallen angels rule over this planet, it also details a hierarchy of demonic echelons.
 
Jesus Christ explained to his apostles what events would immediately precede his second coming, "It shall be exactly as in the days before Noah entered the ark". Matt 24:38 , Luke 17:27. What is the significance of this statement and how does it relate to Ufos? The Flood epic Gen. 6 begins with a strange account of the "sons of God" (b'nai Elohim), taking wives from among the daughters of Adam.
 
In those days giants [nephilim] were in the earth, the men of renown of whom ancient tales are told. "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."The word which is translated, "giants", in the King James version of the Bible is, in Hebrew, "Nephilim", which means, "Those who fell, or ... the fallen ones". Jude, the brother of Jesus describes them as "angels, having left their first estate in heaven". These fallen angels came to earth for a serious purpose.
 The "fallen ones" sought to merge with the bloodline of Adam, because of the promise to send a redeemer through Adam's kinsman. The Hebrew says that the Sons of God saw that the women were a fit "extension", for they sought to extend themselves into this realm from the spirit realm, as well as to extend themselves into the "children of the promise" the lineage of Adam. Satan tried to prevent the eventual birth, in the distant future, of the Messiah.
The mating of human beings with angels resulted in hybrid creatures, evil spirits with human bodies. The human \ angel hybrids began to corrupt and destroy the human race, resulting in the Deluge, "the end of all flesh" except Noah and his family.
 
Scripture uses other names to describe these degraded fallen angels and their descendents in addition to the word Nephilim, they are. . . .
 
Rephaim - from the root rapha = spirits, shades Gen. 14:5
Anakim - race of giants Num. 13:33 descendents of Nephilim
Emim - the proud deserters, terrors, race of giants Gen. 14:5
Zuzim - the evil ones, roaming things Gen. 14:5
Zamzummims - the evil plotters, Deut. 2:20
Zophim - watchers, angels who descended Num. 23, distinct from "holy watchers" aligned with God
Sepherim - the many. . . .
 
Descending Angels, Jordan, Mt. Hermon, Nephilim, UFOs, End of the Age 2012:
 
The book of the Jubilees remarks that Jared or Yeh-red, an Old Testament patriarch, was so called because in his days the angels descended upon the earth - Yaw-rad "descend". It is interesting to note that "Jordan" comes from that same root word denoting "descent, coming down or falling" - Yar-dane "the place of the descent". Jordan, "place of the descent", is located in the ancient boundary of Israel. Israel is currently a major location for sightings, and the fallen angels in disguise as "aliens".
 
The Book of Enoch explains that the Sons of God descended first onto the mountain called Hermon which in Hebrew means desolation, in the land of Jordan the place of the descent. The rebel angels intended to thwart God's plan for the earth by destroying the descendents of Adam. Satan's goal in organizing the nephilim / human hybridization program was to pollute the bloodline that would produce  Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Kinsman Redeemer. Now that it is so close to the end times, satan has orchestrated human/rebel angel interaction on a grand scale. The plan is now to prevent any flesh from being saved.
 
By gentically manipulating human genetics, whether through the guise of "alien abduction" or by supplying willing mortal accomplices with the proper technology... there is currently being created humanoid hybrids who are not-quite-human. These gentically altered humans are no longer Sons of Adam, and no longer able to be saved by the Kinsman Redeemer. The second wave of hybrid "nephilim creation" is satan's last effort to destroy all Sons of Adam, so that none can be redeemed when Jesus Christ returns at the End of the Age.
 
3569  General Category / Bible Study / The "Pre-Trib" Rapture exposed! on: December 25, 2010, 09:10:56 pm
THE TRIBULATION OF THE CHURCH:
 
This bible study will examine the "rapture" of the Church. Will it be pre-Tribulation? Mid? or Post? This may seem like a minor doctrinal issue of no consequence, but that is actually not the case at all.
 
The majority of the Church has been set up and deceived into believing in a pre-Tribulation "rapture". This theory proposes that: one day out of the blue all Christians will suddenly disappear leaving the world wondering what has happened. After this event the 7 year Tribulation period will start and the antichrist will come to power. During this time everyone on earth will be given a second chance to become born again Christians. The people who get saved during this time are called the "tribulation saints" and will be beheaded for refusing to take the mark of the beast. At the end of the Tribulation, Jesus will return with his "raptured" Church in the clouds and defeat the antichrist and his armies. The beast and false prophet will be thrown in the lake of fire and the devil will be chained in prison for 1000 years while Jesus reigns on earth with his Church at the same time.
 
This is not the biblical truth and this theory has been influenced and reinforced in believers minds far more by fictional books and apostate preachers than God's Word. I will use the plain truth of scripture to disprove this theory.
 
In the first part of this study we will look at what the Bible says about going through tribulation, persecution, and affliction. Many Christians say there is no hope if there is no pre-Trib "rapture" and that is exactly the mentality this theory creates. When the "rapture" doesn't happen these Christians will be so unprepared to go through the Tribulation that they will be completely overwhelmed and their faith will utterly fail them. Many will be in such denial at the events unfolding before their eyes that they will be extremely susceptible to deception. This will ultimately result in millions of Christians taking the mark of the beast because they are NOT PREPARED to give their lives for the Lord Jesus Christ. I DO NOT want this to happen so this is why I am writing this exhortation to warn all those who believe this theory. Even using simple logic just think of it like this: Isn't it better to be prepared to go through the Tribulation and be surprised by a "rapture" than to count on the "rapture" and be completely overwhelmed in Tribulation? Unfortunately there will be no PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE.
 
PART 1 - GLORY IN TRIBULATION:
 
"[12] Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." - II Timothy 3:12
 
"[1] Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: [2] By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. [3] And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; [4] And patience, experience; and experience, hope: [5] And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us." - Romans 5:1-5
 
You see there is HOPE in tribulation. Have faith.
 
"[3] That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. [4] For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know." - I Thessalonians 3:3,4
 
We are appointed to suffer tribulation and afflictions.
 
"[22] Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." - Acts 14:22
 
This is what Paul said after he was stoned so bad that everyone thought he was dead!
 
"[7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [8] All these are the beginning of sorrows. [9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. [10] And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. [11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. [12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. [13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." - Matthew 24:7-13
 
Right here it shows that after the beginning of sorrows we shall be hated and killed! How can we be hated and killed if we're "raptured" out? Must be those people "left behind"...please tell me why Jesus would say this and not say, "but you don't have to worry about that because you will be raptured. This is directed at unbelievers who will become believers during the Tribulation." ?!?! Why would he direct this statement at people who aren't even reading this Bible?! He wouldn't. He says those who ENDURE UNTO THE END shall be saved. We must be overcomers and endure the entire Tribulation all the way until we die or Jesus returns.
 
PART 2 - THE APPEARING:
 
Before this next passage Jesus has stated that there will be wars, earthquakes, famine, Christians hated and killed, false prophets, and false Christs(but no "rapture"). Then the beast will stand in the holy place which will start the second half(3 1/2 yrs.) of the Tribulation(The Great Tribulation) at which point Christians and Jews will need to flee into the mountains. At the end of all these events this is what scripture says:
 
"[29] Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: [30] And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. [31] And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other." - Matthew 24:29-31
 
This says that Jesus will return AFTER the Tribulation and his angels will gather his elect(Jews and Gentiles saved by the blood of Jesus) at the sound of a trumpet. Remember the trumpet.
 
"[1] Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, [2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. [3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; [4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God." - II Thessalonians 2:1-4
 
Clearly and plainly this gives a clear warning for a reason: do not be deceived! That day will not come(the day of Christ) until the man of sin is revealed, the antichrist. We will be here on earth when the antichrist is revealed! We will not be "raptured".
 
"[4] And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." - Revelation 20:4
 
How can Christians "not worship the beast" if we're "raptured" out? I suppose some will say these are they who are "left behind". This will be disproven if it has not been already.
 
"[24] Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: [25] But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. [26] But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. [27] So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? [28] He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? [29] But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. [30] Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn."
 
Note that the tares are gathered FIRST to be burned.
 
"[36] Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. [37] He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; [38] The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; [39] The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. [40] As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. [41] The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; [42] And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. [43] Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear." - Matthew 13:24-30,36-43
 
The unbelievers are gathered FIRST and thrown in the lake of fire, then the believers will shine forth and reign with Christ.
 
"[42] Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. [43] But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. [44] Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. [45] Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? [46] Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. [47] Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. [48] But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; [49] And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; [50] The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, [51] And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." - Matthew 24:42-51
 
Do you think that when the pre-trib "rapture" does not happen people will say "My lord delayeth his coming"? Will they turn from the faith and drink with the drunken? Time will tell.
 
"[1] Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. [2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. [3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: [4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. [5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. [6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. [7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. [8] And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. [9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. [10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. [11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. [12] But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. [13] Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh." - Matthew 25:1-13
 
Seriously consider this parable. Why would Jesus say the foolish virgins didn't have enough oil to last the whole night? Why didn't they have time to buy more?
 
"[30] The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth." - Proverbs 10:30
 
This one is straightforward.
 
PART 3 - FLY LIKE AN EAGLE:
 
This final section will examine the verses used by pre-tribbers to support the rapture theory. These interpretations will be disproven using the Bible itself and simple logic.
 
"[13] But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. [14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. [16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [18] Wherefore comfort one another with these words." - I Thessalonians 4:13-18
 
This talks about the resurrection, but it does not say when it will happen. Verse 16 says, "with the trump of God". What is the trump? and when? Read on.
 
"[51] Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, [52] In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." - I Corinthians 15:51,52
 
This is talking about the same event as in I Thessalonians 4:13-18. It says it will happen at the last trump. What is a trump? It then says, "for the trumpet shall sound". Trump = Trumpet. It also said it was the last trump so that means this occurs at the last trumpet. What is the last trumpet? Well in the book of Revelation there are seven angels who sound off seven trumpets, so the last trumpet is obviously the seventh trumpet! I will skip the scriptures describing the first six trumpets and go straight to the seventh.
 
"[15] And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. [16] And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, [17] Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. [18] And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth." - Revelation 11:15-18
 
Those who endure to the last trump will receive their reward.
 
"[33] Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. [34] I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. [35] Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. [36] Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. [37] And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together." - Luke 17:33-37
 
First of all, everyone who puts their hope and trust in the pre-Trib rapture is seeking to save their life, period. Second, the disciples ask Jesus where the people are taken and he said the body would be where the eagles are gathered together. You must ask the logical question, where are the eagles gathered? Thankfully the Bible answers itself:
 
"[28] For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together." - Matthew 24:28
 
The eagles are gathered around the carcass! A dead body! These bodies are DEAD not "raptured". This is why we must listen to the Word alone and not man's interpretation.
 
"[10] Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." - Revelation 3:10
 
Sounds like the "rapture" right? Nope. Let's not assume anything and let the Bible define the Bible. Notice how he says "keep thee". He does not say, "take thee out of". Jesus clarifies here:
 
"[15] I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil." - John 17:15
 
In the KJV "keep" is defined to mean "protect". Jesus would rather have us go through tribulation and protect us because of our faith, than whisk us away so that we learn and gain nothing.
 
I earnestly hope and pray that this study has opened up your eyes to the truth. We are going all the way through the Tribulation. Don't let this get you down and make you lose hope. In fact you should rejoice because those who endure the Tribulation will receive unimaginable reward in heaven. There are none so greatly blessed than those who suffer for the Gospel and die as a witness for Jesus. Just remind yourself that it is all temporary and these afflictions will be gone in the blink of an eye. Soon Jesus will return to wipe away every tear and get rid of all the pain, sorrow, and death forever. So fill your lamp with enough oil, keep the faith, and warn as many others as you can. Time is running out so let's make sure we are the ones written of in this passage:
 
"[10] And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. [11] And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." - Revelation 12:10,11
