Remarks on Job (huliganov.tv)

https://i2.wp.com/www.calvarywilliamsport.com/5a89_files/image002.jpg

Accepting predestination and the sovereignty of God on the one hand is
not a reason not to act as though you can change things on the other.
Fatalism is never commanded in the Bible.

Job worked hard all his life to get into the situation he was, but
nevertheless when he lost everything, he said “the Lord giveth, the
Lord taketh away”. When he had his losses restored I would assume he
also worked and tried to make the best of what he had, even though he
would have acknowledged that it was a gift. He didn’t just sit back.

That’s why I’m not in favour of just sitting back and accepting the
Anti-Christ, the beast, the Whore of Babylon, the False Prophet, just
because these entities are prophesied in Scripture. We are to reject
the mark of the Beast, and not acquiesce in that mark being put on our
flesh. We are the sheep of another Shepherd, and our brandmark is
written on the fleshy tables of the heart.

The devil will always say, “you cannot change it, because even your God
has prophesied it. Go along with my plans uncomplainingly. If you
challenge what false prophets and wicked people are doing, it looks as
if you are complaining against the sovereignty of God” But this is not
the case, as the Word shows what believers are to do in such cases. We
should not be amazed and put to a crisis of our faith over it, but we
should act in whatever way we can to resist it. That issue of what
happens to faith is the true lesson of the Book of Job. As you can see
from the dialogue at the start happening in the halls of eternity
between God and Lucifer. Lucifer claims that Job only believes because
he has had the charmed life. His faith is of no value because he never
had any reason to doubt it. This is a central reason why God allows
Satan a lease over Job’s life for a season. The test of faith is
absolutely crucial.

In this day and age people’s faith is tested by godlessness in the
media, in the fact that the so-called scientific consensus is so-clled
rationalist, which means that basically society considered as an
acceptable credo only that which can be emoirically proven, and hand in
hand with that puts faith in a very low position – except for when
psychologists state that individuals can get some purely carnal benefit
from it. These days for a person to know God means they have to put
their faith against the sniggerings of know-all atheists from all
quarters. But in Job’s day people were not up against the so-called
rationalists and their fairy tales about evolution and billions of
years and a creator-free origin. People basically knew there was a God,
in that there were no serious voices in society voicing any other
possibility, and so the inner certainty of his existence was not a
difficult thing as today.

And yet God has always used faith as the basis for differentiating this
on his side from those who are not. Works were only ever acceptable as
the fruit of faith, but only faith ever pleased God. It is written that
“without faith it is impossible to please God; for he that cometh to
God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that
diligently seek Him”. So what do we have here with Job? Is the devil
right that Job’s faith is cheap? Or will he make a statement of faith
even after his comforts are stripped from him with all the severity
that the cleansing and trying fuller’s fire of God can muster?

Well, what says the tortured, inmpoverished Job with the rotting flesh,
the dead family?

For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the
latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this
body, yet in my flesh shall I see God; whom I shall see for myself, and
mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed
within me.”-Job 19:25-27.

There we have it. This man, who has been blasted beyond measure, utters
with faith as strong as knowledge, a prophesy of Christ, and of the
Resurrection. And this testimony has gone down as among the most
beautiful words of history, a sentence of incredible value – worth more
than all his possessions.

He was not tried for ever because he did not need to be. After he was
shown to be of faithful integrity and the devil shown up to be a
speculating, fraudulent accuser, everything went back to the way it had
been before.

God was able to bring everything back to normal again.

And of course much more than “normal”.

Just as God is able to wipe every tear from your eye, and will do so one day, if He finds faith in you.

Best,

Uncle Davey

Celibacy or purity for the single Christian?

Standard

mxgrp4

In just a generation, we’ve witnessed a stunning devolution of perspective on sexuality in the church. While some can only discern a faint whisper of the fallout, everyone with working spiritual ears can hear a scream. We’ve been forced to look at something that few wanted to acknowledge, but out of the ashes of sexual immorality, a phoenix cry for purity has arisen.

Let’s get the bad news out of the way. Practical, balanced teaching on sexual purity and living it out with integrity has an anemic history in the contemporary church. In contrast, a nonstop, toxic mix of eroticism coupled with the flesh’s rebellious nature has commandeered the attention of youth and singles with little to no intervention. This includes subtle undercurrent of sensuality in the church.  The yearning is deep and passionate, however deep and passionate yearning simply isn’t enough to resolve the need.

A needful caveat is that sexual purity isn’t synonymous with celibacy. I was having a conversation with a friend about celibacy among Christian singles. My friend seemed to think that abstaining from sex as a Christian was a badge of honor. While celibacy is indeed a laudable accomplishment,

celibacy isn’t necessarily Godly. Anyone can be celibate with the right amount of will power. Atheists, buddhists monks, muslims and Catholic priests can all live a celibate life, but is just being celibate mean one is in right relationship with God? Certainly not. God requires something more. Something which involves much more than physical abstention from sexual activity. He requires purity of heart, mind and body.

Do you recall Jesus saying “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God?” (Matt 5:8) John reminded believers that “He that has this hope purifieth himself, even as he (Christ) is pure. (1 John 3:3)

Clearly, purity, not celibacy is God’s standard and his requirement as followers of Christ.

Over the last fourteen years that I’ve ministered sexual wholeness to mostly young adults, I’ve become familiar with that cry to be pure. Its anxious —oftimes anguished– its urgent and its deeply personal. And it wasn’t just confined to young, single Christians. Against the urgency, I’ve counseled a radically peaceful path to reaching one’s goal and God’s standard. If the goal is indeed sexual purity which pleases Christ, then the progressive path out of sexual impurity should be marked by:

1. Rediscovering the foundations and fundamentals of our faith and what they are intended to accomplish in your life. Embracing the whys and hows help to stabilize your life and prepare it for sustained progression.

2. Rebuilding the breaches in your life using spiritual and relational processes. Seeking to rebuild relational wholeness apart from healthy relationships with others is counterproductive. And be sure these relationships will require time, effort and commitment.

3. Recreating your desires through strategy. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Its one thing to know God’s standard, its quite another to consistently apply it. You must have more than just a desire to live sexually pure, desire must conjugate into a holy pragmatism.

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned and continue to teach is an old one: prevention is much better than a cure. If God says don’t touch and don’t participate, let that be a cornerstone principle of your life going forward.

Its from this point, we must allow our personal and corporate perspective on sexual purity to be formed.

When we understand that celibacy isn’t an end unto itself, just a component of a pure life, we can get rid of much of the sexual frustration and tension in the lives of many Christians who are unmarried.

Question for discussion: do you believe God “calls” people to celibacy? What biblical support is there for such a calling? If one is “called to celibacy”, what is the purpose?

The ministry of warning

The ministry of warning

BY BRDAVISON

J991968Are people who are given a charge to warn people about false teachers a legitimate function in the Body of Christ?

Picture yourself in the shoes of the Apostle Paul. You’ve diligently labored to bring a church up to spiritual maturity in Christ. Yet you know that when you leave, some of the very men you have taught will turn against you, pervert the gospel and lead others into spiritual darkness. What’s more, others from the outside will move in to attack the church. What would you do? You have to leave because there’s work to do elsewhere. Its a troubling moment for Paul. He does leave, but not before delivering a stern and chilling warning.

And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.” Acts 20:25-31

Today, Paul’s admonition is just as urgent and necessary as it was in those times. In fact it is even more urgent. With the proliferation of instant media, false teachers can easily reach millions of people and put them in danger.

As an apostle, Paul stood before church leaders whom he had trained for some three years. Its apparent he had deeply invested quite a bit of himself in them.  But nonetheless some would still fall into the trap. The contemporary church is in trouble. It has lain dormant in a state of spiritual sluggishness for far too long while threats continue to mount from both inside and out. We now have allowed the enemies of God to show their ugly faces.

What seems to be in short supply these days are preachers who take the ministry of warning seriously. This kind of preacher preaches truth without respect of persons. More and more we’re all having to face this painful reality. Because of the love of money and a failure to walk humbly, more preachers are focusing on filling up the seats rather than care and protection of the flock of God. This is a serious dereliction of duty which endangers the sheep. The church is not a money making junket for men to pay their bills. The church should be a meeting place for the body of Christ. If you didn’t catch our series on the church and the kingdom, read it here, here, and here.

In the text, Paul states “I am pure from the blood of all men”. Why does he say this? The only way to be pure from the “blood of men” is to preach God’s word without error.  Its God’s word that is the foundation for truth and freedom.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Its a given that if  leaders deviate from the Word, they will fall into error. Although God’s messengers teach truth, the message is subject to rejection. As reported by The Foundation-Jesus Christ blog: “Because the truth is not presented to the sheep, biblical illiteracy is at an all time high”. Thus, Paul instructs the overseers to take heed therefore. Whenever the word therefore appears, always look to see what it’s “there for”!  Taking heed means: do not conduct business as usual!
Wolves are nothing to play with! Certainly not ones that are “ravenous” and “grievous”.  A Shepherd has two main responsibilities towards the flock. (1) feed them. Reference Jeremiah 3:15 and (2) guard them with his own life Reference John 10:11.   Sheep must be made aware of the enemy. The wolf’s #1 tactic against the sheep is to appear to be one of them! Calling out the wolf is beneficial for everyone at risk.
Matthew 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”  How can you beware if you are not aware?  In Ephesians 5:11 it further tells us: “Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”  The scripture is certainly clear and Paul, who was the author of Ephesians, does not contradict himself in Acts.
Leaders, wake up and take heed!
At one church I recently attended,  the pastor allowed a itinerant preacher to come in and speak to the congregation. It was very unfortunate the speaker was allowed to regurgitate the unscriptural word of faith doctrine.  But what’s even worst is that the pastor clapped and praised the man. I was astonished that a pastor who had been given the responsibility to guard the sheep actually allowing a false teacher access to the flock. Of course it was “entertaining”. But it seems that protecting the flock has given way to entertaining the flock, and in the long run this can only be detrimental to the spiritual development of those who need it most.
The message coming from many of today’s leaders isnt one of warning, repentance or watchfulness, its a nonstop praise party! Concerts, plays, parties, anniversaries, dances, cruises, comedy shows, musicals, contests, you name it, anything to keep the sheep happy and unaware of the dangers they face. When “preaching” does rise to the top, its nothing more that the latest inspirational best you-better you Osteen-esque therapy session.

Terry Moore,  a Virginia blogger summed things up well:

I have become so frustrated, disgusted, and disillusioned with many of the men and women who call themselves Christian pastors today. I’ve had it just about up to my eyeballs with their spineless and gutless methods of leading their flocks. With the exception of those who pastor fundamentalist churches, most of them refuse to preach about sin or hell anymore.
They spend of all of their time in the pulpit focusing on God’s love, grace, and forgiveness. It’s all well and good to preach about those things, as they are a big part of God’s nature. But there is another side to God – a side of high moral standards and judgment and punishment. When a pastor omits that side of God, it is a clear dereliction of duty.”

The ministry of warning
The office that comes with authority also comes with a mandate to warn. When authority is given one can almost guarantee there’s a penalty attached for not holding the office with integrity.  Why does God warn people and why does he charge his leaders to warn people?
Because warning allows time for escape to safety. It gives time to prepare and repent, thus avoiding potentially devastating consequences. The ministry of warning in the scripture is expansive in both Testaments.
Consider that:
  • Noah warned the people for 100 years that it was going to rain.
  • Jeremiah warned Isreal repeatedly that because of their sin, God would send them into captivity
  • Jonah was sent to warn Nineveh that God’s judgment would fall on them.
  • In Matthew 24, Jesus warned his disciples among other things that “many false Christs would arise who would deceive many

Likewise,  Paul warned the Ephesian elders, told them what was coming and how to withstand it. God is speaking again, warning again, through this blog and through other watchmen on the wall. And although a warning does not mean people will necessarily hear and take heed, it does say much about the goodness of God. He cares enough to warn us so that we can escape the danger.

What was the thorn in the flesh the Apostle Paul had? (2 Cor 12:7)

What was the thorn in the flesh

the Apostle Paul had?
2 Corinthians  12:7:  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. (KJV)

So far, I believed that it was his vision because of this verse:

Galatians 6:11 “Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand. (KJV)

But let see if this belief stands and aligns with the Holy Scriptures.

One thing is sure though is that the Apostle Paul was not tempted by lust (since he never was married, therefore he never had a sexual relationship with a woman) because otherwise he would marry like he was preaching to the ones who already were (married) at some point of their existence and for instance, the young widows.

I came across a very interesting text online:

“The next scripture used to say Paul’s thorn was bad eyes is also in Galatians, chapter 6, verse 11. It says, “Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.” People have said Paul’s eyes were so bad that he had to write in large letters, and this is what he was making reference to. That is only a supposition and not a very good one at that. It is a lot more credible to believe that he was simply referring to the long letter he had written to the Galatians”.

Here is the whole text:

Paul’s Thorn In The Flesh
By Andrew Wommack

“And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” (2 Cor. 12:7-10)

This thorn in the flesh that Paul mentioned has been used and misused by Christians to justify submitting to nearly any problem that comes along. Satan has twisted this passage of Scripture to deceive many, many people into believing that God would not heal Paul, so how can they expect to be healed? Let us examine this closely and find out exactly what Paul’s thorn in the flesh was.

First of all, this “thorn” came because of the abundance of revelations Paul had received. Until a person has an abundance of revelations, similar to what Paul had, he is not going to have a “thorn.” That would disqualify just about all of those who have been hiding behind Paul’s thorn.

Then, verse 7 says it came lest Paul should be exalted above measure. Traditionally, that has been interpreted to say the thorn was to keep Paul humble. Therefore, God had to be the author of it, because only God would want Paul to be humble. But there is a godly way of being exalted. First Peter 5:6 says, “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.” Those who submit (humble) themselves to God will be exalted by God. Paul was not speaking of exalting himself above measure through pride, but rather, the thorn came from Satan to keep Paul from being exalted by God in the eyes of the people. Many more people would have received what Paul preached if everything was always “rosy” for him. But there was this messenger of Satan who always buffeted Paul and scared away the faint-hearted from committing themselves to Jesus, whom Paul preached.

God magnified, or exalted, Joshua in the sight of his people (Josh. 3:7). He continued to do that with the people He used on into the new covenant (Acts 5:13). So, we see that the exalting spoken of is not a negative kind but a godly kind. That just further strengthens the fact that the thorn was not God’s doing.

In verse 7, right after the thorn in the flesh is mentioned, there is a phrase set off by commas which says, “The messenger of Satan to buffet me.” This is an explanation of what the thorn was. It was not a thing but rather a demonic messenger. The word used as “messenger” here is always translated as angel or messenger and refers to a created being. So, Paul’s thorn was literally a demon sent from Satan to buffet him. The word “buffet” means to strike repeatedly as waves would buffet the shore.

How did this demonic force continually strike Paul? Traditionally it has been taught that it was with sickness, and the thing that made many accept that is the use of the words “weakness” and “infirmity” in verses 9 and 10. Infirmity definitely does mean sickness and is used that way in 1 Timothy 5:23, but that is not the only meaning of the word. The number two definition is any lack or inadequacy. For instance, Romans 8:26 says, “the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities.” In this case, the context makes it clear that it is not speaking of sicknesses but rather not knowing what to pray for. Our finite minds are an infirmity, or an inadequacy.

If we look at the context of Paul’s thorn in the flesh, we find that infirmity does not mean sickness in 2 Corinthians 12:9 and 10. In 2 Corinthians 11:30, Paul uses the exact terminology of “glorying in infirmities” that is used just a few verses later in speaking about this thorn. In the eleventh chapter he had just finished listing what those infirmities were. In verses 23-29, he lists such things as imprisonment, stripes, shipwrecks, and stonings; none of these speak of sickness. Verse 27 mentions weakness and painfulness, which some have tried to make mean sickness, but it is just as possible he could have been weary and suffered painfulness from such things as being stoned and left for dead (Acts 14:19). All these things listed in 2 Corinthians 11 refer to persecutions as infirmities. So, in context, Paul’s thorn was a demonic angel or messenger sent by Satan which continually stirred up persecution against him. This is also verified by three Old Testament references (Num. 33:55; Josh. 23:13 and Judg. 2:3), where people are spoken of as being “thorns in your sides” and “thorns in your eyes.”

Paul asked the Lord to remove persecution from him, not sickness, and the Lord told him His grace was sufficient. We are not redeemed from persecution, and Paul later stated that when he said in 2 Timothy 3:12, “All that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” Most gladly, therefore, he gloried in persecutions, reproaches, necessities, and distresses that the power of Christ might rest upon him (2 Cor. 12:9). The word “glory” is an old English word which means to have dominion over or command. It is used in Exodus 8:9 where Moses told Pharaoh to glory over him, or command him, when to destroy the frogs. So when Paul spoke of glorying in these infirmities or persecutions, he was speaking of victory even in the midst of continual harassment.

In Acts 14:19, Paul was stoned and left for dead, but God raised him up, and the next day he walked at least twenty miles into the next town and started preaching again. The Lord did not stop the persecution, but God’s strength was certainly made perfect in Paul’s weakness (verse 9). Can you imagine what those that stoned him must have thought? They could see Paul’s humanity in the cuts and bruises, but they could also see the supernatural strength of God flowing through him. “For when I am weak, then am I strong” (verse 10).

There are two other passages of Scripture that those who believe Paul’s thorn in the flesh was sickness have tried to use to verify that. One is Galatians 4:13-15. Here Paul says that he preached the Gospel to these Galatians through an infirmity of the flesh, and in verse 15, he makes reference to these people being willing to poke out their own eyes and give them to him. From this, I have heard ministers preach that Paul’s thorn was a rare, ancient disease which was characterized by runny, puffy eyes. But let us look at whom Paul was speaking to when he said this. He was writing to the people who lived in the region known as Galatia, which had as its major cities, Derbe, Lystra, and Iconium. The instance we mentioned earlier, where Paul was stoned and left for dead, happened in Lystra, a city of Galatia. The next day Paul walked to Derbe, another city of Galatia, and began preaching unto them. I’m sure he had runny, puffy eyes, along with multiple cuts and bruises, but they were not the result of some disease. They were the result of having just been stoned. He also says in verse 13 that his infirmity was “at the first,” which leaves the impression it was only a temporary thing that he recovered from.

The next scripture used to say Paul’s thorn was bad eyes is also in Galatians, chapter 6, verse 11. It says, “Ye see how large a letter I have written unto you with mine own hand.” People have said Paul’s eyes were so bad that he had to write in large letters, and this is what he was making reference to. That is only a supposition and not a very good one at that. It is a lot more credible to believe that he was simply referring to the long letter he had written to the Galatians.

The reason it is so important to realize that the thorn in the flesh was not something which Jesus died to redeem us from, such as sickness, is so that we won’t submit ourselves to these things. James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” We have to resist, or actively fight against, the devil and the things he brings, to see them flee. Satan has used traditional teaching about Paul’s thorn to bring many Christians to a place of submitting to him. But, praise God, you shall know the truth and the truth, shall set you free.

THE VARIOUS THEORIES BROUGHT TO DENY THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF THE RESURRECTION AND THEIR REFUTATION

THE VARIOUS THEORIES BROUGHT TO DENY THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF THE RESURRECTION:
JESUS’ RESURRECTION – INTRODUCTION:

A BRIEF HISTORY:

In the beliefs of the antiquity, there was the myths of the Resurrection linked to the cycle of the seasons. On the other hand, one does not find nothing comparable to the proclamation of the apostles and writing according to which a man, Jesus of Nazareth was dead and overcame the death while coming back to life to reign eternally on a new creation get rid of sin, sufferings and death. The New Testament, filled with a hope based on the Resurrection of Christ and of his faith in our own Resurrection, contrast sharply with general despair facing the death that characterized the beliefs in this era. The Greeks believed in immortality seen as the delivery of the impede that constitutes the physical body; the Jews expected to return world of the deaths in their same body. While Christian hope was the one of a transformed body able to express personal life in the age to come.

THE RESURRECTION: BASIC DOCTRINE OF CHRISTIANITY:

One confuses often today the Resurrection with the maintenance of the personal existence after the death. While the Resurrection hears the maintenance of the existence (the soul) after the death, it implies for the person the recuperation of a body. To be raised from the death, is to receive again a body, this is to be reintroduced by God in the concrete world, in the material world. Once resurrected, we do not know the death anymore. According to the Bible, we have only one life to live in this body marked by the sin and the death. Therefore, we die only once. Now, this life that passes under the assessment of God about the good or the evil that one will have done being in this body determines our eternity.

For Christianity, the physical Resurrection of Christ is extremely important. (1 Cor. 15, 12-19) The Whole Christian Faith depends on it. The apostle Paul, in his epistles, showed that all is based on the bodily Resurrection of Christ. If there is no Resurrection he says, the apostles are false witnesses, the predication of the Christians is vain, their faith also and they are without hope for the future. For the Christian, the Resurrection testifies the deity of Jesus-Christ, it is the sign by excellence of His divinity. It gives all the meaning of his life and to his message. It validates His affirmations of incarnate God, Savior of the humanity and as coming judge of the world. According to Paul, the Resurrection of Jesus removed the power of the death and to the tomb his ultimate victory on life. In His death-Resurrection event, Jesus constitutes the first example of this that which will become reality for all the believers.

VARIOUS THEORIES BROUGHT TO DENY THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF THE RESURRECTION:  1ST THEORY: “THE HALLUCINATION”:

The theory of the hallucination suggests that all the apparitions of Christ after the Resurrection were only hallucinatory deceptions. The people who have claimed to see Christ are seen as having hallucinations. This theory supposes that the grave always were occupied enters in contradiction with certain conditions (principles) that must be met to allow a hallucination to produce itself:

1st weakness of the theory: theory that indisputably the first principle that says that usually, uniquely certain persons have hallucinations – usually paranoiacs and (especially) schizophrenics. Now, in the New Testament, there is all kinds of persons having had different experiences, a different education and being in different dispositions.

2nd weakness of the theory: the second principle enunciates that the hallucinations are linked to the subconscious of a person and to its previous experiences. It is not very likely that two persons, or more, can have the same hallucination at the same time.

Christ appeared to a lot of persons and the descriptions of these apparitions contain a lot of details that the psychologists consider, determined by the reality. The supporters of this theory seem to forget that a hallucination is a private event, a subjective experience empties of all external references, empties of all objects. Thus, if two persons cannot create or keep the same vision without any object external reference, that is impossible that 500 persons, hallucinate the same thing and at the same time (Christ appeared simultaneously to 500 persons stipulates Paul in his first epistle to the Corinthians).

3rd weakness of the theory: ordinarily, the hallucinations can take place whenever or wherever. In the New Testament, the circumstances of a hallucination are lacking. The mentioned apparitions are a lot more than only simple momentary visions, the time there plays a role: 15 different apparitions – of which to more than 500 persons. Besides, these apparitions present themselves under a big variety of time and places.

4th weakness of the theory: the hallucinations required of the subjects an expectative spirit or of hope that does their desires generate certain thoughts. Now, the last thing that the disciples awaited was a Resurrection: they thought that Christ had been crucified, buried and that all was finished. Mary Magdala, while going to the tomb the first Sunday to carry the spices that she had prepared to embalm with fragrance the body of Jesus, evidently did not expect to discover Him risen from the death. When at last the Lord appeared to His disciples, they had fear and believed to see a ghost.

5th weakness of the theory: the hallucinations habitually takes place during a long period and on a regularly basis. In the New Testament, the apparitions stopped abruptly. They stopped themselves all at the same moment.

2ND THEORY: “BODY STOLEN BY THE DISCIPLES”

This theory supports that the disciples would have invented a Resurrection by stealing the body of Jesus and that they accepted dying martyrs for a lie.

Here a theory that would not hold in front of a justice court. One supposes that the disciples would have come to steal the body of Jesus while the roman guard slept. Now, if the roman guard really had slept, how could he have known that the disciples had stolen the body? The defense lawyer would have liked to undergo a cross-examination to the captain of the guard.

It is impossible that the soldiers slept. The fear of the punishment caused them to be very careful with their orders, especially in the night. The Roman security unit was a war machine; if the disciples had attempted something, there would have been a fight of six seconds (just one soldier easily could have mastered the whole group of the disciples). It is necessary to remember that when Jesus was stopped in the Garden! of Gethsemane, all the disciples abandoned him and fled. In the New Testament, these are described not as intrigues, but as knocked out men, discouraged, that hid fearing themselves for their life.

And then, there is the question of the huge rock of about two tons that closed the entry of the tomb. The position of this last one – rolled to a certain distance of the sepulcher – makes the idea difficult since the soldiers would have slept despite of all this noise. Over all, this hypothesis does not agree to the lesser of the world, with that we know of the character of the apostles. These people were too honest to commit such trickery. This action would contrast with all is written about them (these men of high morality and of honor). According to the doctor J. N. D. Anderson, Leading Juridical Expert in Great Britain, the theory does not give explanation to the touching transformation that operated itself in them and that changed from to being depressed and discouraged in witnesses that nothing could stop.

That did not resemble any of them to imagine a blow of this kind, or to have enough shrewdness and of rapidity decision to execute it without anybody noticing it. Even if such had been the case, the history of Christianity would have taken a different turn. Sooner or later, one or the other of the eleven men having taken part in the abduction of the body would have, by clumsiness or otherwise, revealed the secret. More, a moral structure of the breadth of the primitive church established, as this church was, on long persecutions and of unspeakable sufferings, could not have established its doctrine on a lie.

In the last analysis, why the disciples would have wanted to give the impression that Christ was risen from the dead while they did not expect his Resurrection? Also, who could believe that these men were confronted to later persecutions, while knowing their faith was based on a deception?


3RD THEORY: “BODY STOLEN BY AUTHORITIES”

Here, Roman authorities and Jews would have taken the body and would have deposited the body in a safe place, in order to prevent whoever to claim that there had been Resurrection.

Face has such an hypothesis, one cannot do otherwise than to ask the following question: Why would authorities have done the only thing that could create problems to them? The disciples had returned in the middle of the city of Jerusalem and preached Christ rose from the death. If what they proclaimed was false, it would have sufficed to show the body to contradict them. Where was the official denial? Why authorities did not say: “This is an absurdity. We gave the order to move the body”.

If that had been insufficient, why would they not have called as witnesses those that had moved the body? Or why would they not have put the body of Christ on a cart and displayed it all over Jerusalem? This spectacle would have killed the Christianity before its beginning. The only possible answer to this question is that the authorities were not able to produce the body. They had absolutely no clue to allow them to have the knowledge of where the body was.

Yes, when the apostles began to preach the Resurrection, it would have sufficed for the authorities to show the body to refute the Christian proclamation, but they did not do it…

4th THEORY: “THE FAINTING” (OR THEORY OF INTENSIVE CARE)

According to this theory, Jesus was not really dead on the cross. It is true that he was nailed to it and suffered shock, pains and bleeding, but instead of dying he fainted of exhaustion. Thinking that he was dead his disciples buried him alive. The medical knowledge of the era was not very well developed; it was easy for them to be mistaken. The cold of the tomb where Christ was placed woke him up from the coma. His disciples were so ignorant that they could not believe of a simple intensive care; that is why they supported that it was a matter of a Resurrection.

This theory forgets certain facts:

1. Jesus undergoes six legal proceedings – three Roman and three Jewish proceedings.
2. It was inflicted on him the torture of the Roman flagellation.
3. He was so weak that he did not have the strength to carry his “patibulum” – i.e. the transversal bar of the cross.
4. They nailed him in the hands (or wrists) and feet to crucify him.
5. The Roman pierced his side from a blow of a spear and the witnesses said: “It came out water and blood”, which is a death sign.
6. Four butchers confirmed his death. The Roman teams in charge of the crucifixion knew their job. They had enough practice on others.
7. More than 100 pounds of spices and of sticky substances were placed all over his body. (could he have breathed through that?)
8. He was placed in a cold and humid grave.
9. A big rock was rolled in front of the entry.
10. A Roman guard was placed in front of the grave.

According to this theory, an unbelievable thing happened: the cold and humid air of the grave would have reanimated Christ instead of killing him (by pneumonia alone). He tore his shroud, pushed the rock in the entry, pushed back the guards and little time after, appeared to his disciples as Lord of life.

Indeed, this theory does not hold any account of the mortal character of the inflicted wound to Jesus, frightful mutilation of the hands (or wrists) and feet, the exhaustion due to heavy bleeding, of absence of any human assistance during the most critical moments where they would have been essential, firmly tight shroud around the body, and the heavy rock that closed the entry of the tomb. It suffices to represent a human body, bleeding from five open wounds lying on the cold rock of a tomb, without human relief of any type, to understand to which extent this assumption is not reasonable.

IN CONCLUSION:

Less than twenty years following the death and Resurrection of Christ, the word of the fishermen of Galilee shook even in deeper more seated temple of Judaism and its echoes resounded all alongside the Eastern Coast of the Mediterranean. Then, it began to become a serious threat for the Roman Empire. The Christian Church recruited the mass of its first adherents not among the foreigners that came to pass some days or some weeks in Jerusalem for a holiday, but in the permanent population of the city. The enemies of the faith were paralysed. Several high persons would have certainly sacrificed a part of their fortune to annihilate this movement if it had been possible.

By a strange whim of luck, the disciples were brought to begin their campaign that was scarcely a 15 minute of walk to the place of, if their pretensions were not to have been founded, the remains of their Master was buried in a easily accessible cave. The question could be solved immediately and by testimonies of a limited number of people. Besides, it is necessary to take in consideration that when the disciples of Jesus proclaimed the Resurrection, they did it as eyewitnesses while the people that had been in communication with the events of which they spoke were alive yet. In 56 A.D., the apostle Paul wrote that more than 500 persons at the same time saw the Resurrected One, and that most of them were still alive. (1 Corinthians 15) That the first Christians were able to invent such a fable and to preach it among those who could so easily have contradicted them, while producing the body of Jesus surpasses in my opinion the boundaries of the credibility. An author said one day: “If Jesus would remain in the tomb, the history of his life and death would have remained with him”.

My analysis of this video above:  You know how God fought Egypt and Egypt was deeply involved in occult.  A traveller (Alien) is in fact Satan.  Looking for a way to extent his  life. Curious and without fear, the young man walk towards the light of Lucifer who is the light-bearer.  Then the traveller (Satan) took possession of his body like a parasite looking for a host.  (spooky)  The traveller (Satan) used this Stargate (demonic deception but it works) to bring people as workers just like the one we saw.  (bringing more demonic beings with him) Using technology to sustain eternal life – the elite is trying very hard to achieve that goal. (that is why Walt Disney 33rd degree Mason body is frozen – hoping the technology will be found to resurrect him).  See how the possession of this young man at the end of the video looks just like a demonic possession.Another piece to my puzzle/research concerning the worship of the Sun god Ra, the Masonic god called different names… folks celebrating either Christ MASS or the Sun-Day worship are in fact worshipping the Sun god and “if you worship the lake of fire in the sky (reference to the sun) that is where you go when you die”.CHRIST-MASS and LUCIFER WORSHIP Quote around 57 seconds:  “if you worship the lake of fire in the sky (reference to the sun) that is where you go when you die”.

Why do Christians worship on Sunday?
The World Net Daily
Excerpts:
Bacchiocchi earned his doctorate in church history at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and was awarded a gold medal by Pope Paul VI for his summa cum laude class work and dissertation, “From Sabbath to Sunday: A Historical Investigation of the Rise of Sunday Observance in Early Christianity.”

His studies gave him unique access to Roman Catholic historical archives that shed much light on the transition from Sabbath to Sunday.

The Church of the capital of the empire, whose authority was already felt far and wide in the second century, appears to be the most likely birthplace of Sunday observance,” he concluded.

In one of his last interviews before his death, he told WND: “Anti-Judaism caused the abandonment of the Sabbath, and pagan sun worship influenced the adoption of Sunday.”

He says evidence of anti-Judaism is found in the writings of Christian leaders such as Ignatius, Barnabus and Justin in the second century. He notes these three “witnessed and participated in the process of separation from Judaism which led the majority of the Christians to abandon the Sabbath and adopt Sunday as the new day of worship.”

Bacchiocchi also explains the influence of pagan sun worship provides a “plausible explanation for the Christian choice of Sunday” over the day of Saturn. Its effect wasn’t just limited to Sunday. It apparently led to the placement of Jesus’ birth in late December.

“The adoption of the 25th of December for the celebration of Christmas is perhaps the most explicit example of sun worship’s influence on the Christian liturgical calendar,” Bacchiocchi writes. “It is a known fact that the pagan feast of the Dies Natalis Solis Invicti – the birthday of the Invincible Sun, was held on that date.”

One of the Roman names for this “Invincible Sun” god in the days of the apostles was Mithra. There are striking similarities between the ancient worship of Mithra and today’s Christianity, leading some to think early Christians adopted Sunday worship from heathen customs.

More on Jesus the “spirit guide”….

666 Part 6 The Satanic Subliminal Messages.

wow
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

It gets very interesting here…. 666 Part 5 The Sign of the Devil and his true Hermaphrodite Nature.I research for years so I am seeing connections very quick…. I even discovered about let’s say 3 months ago that the “image of Jesus” is in fact a spirit guide….

JESUS, THE SPIRIT GUIDE? Johanna Michaelson, a former New Ager who became a Christian, writes in her autobiography ‘The Beautiful Side of Evil’, that she learned visualisation through a Silva Mind Control course. She pictured a radiant ‘Jesus’ figure and invited him to be her special guide, but on his second visit he appeared as a blood-drenched were- wolf! Johanna later suffered a terrible struggle to eject this impersonation of Jesus from her mind. This demonstrates the awful danger of conjuring up a mental image of God as Comforter and Guide. Christians who would not knowingly invite demonic spirit-guides into their souls, are accepting them under the guise of Jesus-pictures! And they are taught to do so by visualisation and guided imagery, so popular in positive confession and inner healing ministries today. Demons care little how we imagine them. They are fully prepared to manifest as ‘angels of light’ or even as a sort of picture-postcard ‘Jesus’ if that is what we want. But whatever the appearance of an imagined being invited into the mind to guide and control, the result will be the same – bondage to demonic powers. It seems incredible, but Christian teachers are urging their followers to get involved in this sorcery: “…try to imagine God; keep searching in your mind to form an image of God. When the image is there, you will know it…you may have to fine-tune it by focusing on each part of the image and visualising yourself with that image…eventually it will speak to you…”(20) Instead of praying to our Father in Heaven, whom none can see because He dwells in unapproachable light, we are encouraged to create a mental god and receive its guidance…”eventually it will speak to you”, are words that should strike a chill into any true Christian’s heart! By this (occult) method of visualisation, we can have a little Jesus-god at our beck and call, ready to be summoned whenever we choose. We are told that it matters not how we picture this ‘Jesus’ – in robes of white or jeans and tee-shirt :”The most noble and glorious purpose of the imagination is giving reality to the unseen Lord…the Lord doesn’t care ONE BIT how we visualise Him…Picture Him any way you wish…”(21) Richard Foster, another follower of Agnes Sanford, assures us that this imaginary picture is “more than an exercise of the imagination – it can be a genuine confrontation. Jesus Christ will actually come to you.”(22) Certainly SOMETHING will come, but WHAT? A demonic spirit guide contacted in this way will begin to control the mind with his suggestions – if the guide is thought to be Jesus, the information will be received uncritically, as if from God. How much of the new teaching now coming into the Church is based on such guidance?

The Jesuit Oath Exposed


“Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.”
Professor Arthur Noble

[The following is the text of the Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction as recorded in the Journals of the 62nd Congress, 3rd Session, of the United States Congressional Record (House Calendar No. 397, Report No. 1523, 15 February, 1913, pp. 3215-3216), from which it was subsequently torn out. The Oath is also quoted by Charles Didier in his book Subterranean Rome (New York, 1843), translated from the French original. Dr. Alberto Rivera, who escaped from the Jesuit Order in 1967, confirms that the induction ceremony and the text of the Jesuit Oath which he took were identical to what we have cited below. – A. N.]

When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present, the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colours, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM NECAR REGES IMPIUS. The meaning of which is: It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical Kings, Governments, or Rulers.

Upon the floor is a red cross at which the postulant or candidate kneels. The Superior hands him a small black crucifix, which he takes in his left hand and presses to his heart, and the Superior at the same time presents to him a dagger, which he grasps by the blade and holds the point against his heart, the Superior still holding it by the hilt, and thus addresses the postulant:

(The Superior speaks:)

My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to be a spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among other Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence, to seek even to preach from their pulpits, and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and even to descend so low as to become a Jew among Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for the benefit of your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope. You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace; to take sides with the combatants and to act secretly with your brother Jesuit, who might be engaged on the other side, but openly opposed to that with which you might be connected, only that the Church might be the gainer in the end, in the conditions fixed in the treaties for peace and that the end justifies the means. You have been taught your duty as a spy, to gather all statistics, facts and information in your power from every source; to ingratiate yourself into the confidence of the family circle of Protestants and heretics of every class and character, as well as that of the merchant, the banker, the lawyer, among the schools and universities, in parliaments and legislatures, and the judiciaries and councils of state, and to be all things to all men, for the Pope’s sake, whose servants we are unto death. You have received all your instructions heretofore as a novice, a neophyte, and have served as co-adjurer, confessor and priest, but you have not yet been invested with all that is necessary to command in the Army of Loyola in the service of the Pope. You must serve the proper time as the instrument and executioner as directed by your superiors; for none can command here who has not consecrated his labours with the blood of the heretic; for “without the shedding of blood no man can be saved”. Therefore, to fit yourself for your work and make your own salvation sure, you will, in addition to your former oath of obedience to your order and allegiance to the Pope, repeat after me:

(Text of the Oath:)

I_______________ , now in the presence of Almighty God, the blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the Holy Apostles, St. Peter and St. Paul, and all the saints, sacred host of Heaven, and to you, my Ghostly Father, the superior general of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola, in the pontification of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the Virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear that His Holiness, the Pope, is Christ’s Vice-Regent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by the virtue of the keys of binding and loosing given to His Holiness by my Saviour, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical Kings, Princes, States, Commonwealths, and Governments, and they may be safely destroyed. Therefore to the utmost of my power I will defend this doctrine and His Holiness’s right and custom against all usurpers of the heretical or Protestant authority whatever, especially the Lutheran Church of Germany, Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and the now pretended authority and Churches of England and Scotland, and the branches of same now established in Ireland and on the continent of America and elsewhere and all adherents in regard that they may be usurped and heretical, opposing the sacred Mother Church of Rome. I do now denounce and disown any allegiance as due to any heretical king, prince or State, named Protestant or Liberal, or obedience to any of their laws, magistrates or officers. I do further declare the doctrine of the Churches of England and Scotland of the Calvinists, Huguenots, and others of the name of Protestants or Masons to be damnable, and they themselves to be damned who will not forsake the same. I do further declare that I will help, assist, and advise all or any of His Holiness’s agents, in any place where I should be, in Switzerland, Germany, Holland, Ireland or America, or in any other kingdom or territory I shall come to, and do my utmost to extirpate the heretical Protestant or Masonic doctrines and to destroy all their pretended powers, legal or otherwise. I do further promise and declare that, notwithstanding, I am dispensed with to assume any religion heretical for the propagation of the Mother Church’s interest; to keep secret and private all her agents’ counsels from time to time, as they entrust me, and not to divulge, directly or indirectly, by word, writing or circumstances whatever; but to execute all that should be proposed, given in charge, or discovered unto me by you, my Ghostly Father, or any of this sacred order. I do further promise and declare that I will have no opinion or will of my own or any mental reservation whatever, even as a corpse or cadaver (perinde ac cadaver), but will unhesitatingly obey each and every command that I may receive from my superiors in the militia of the Pope and of Jesus Christ. That I will go to any part of the world whithersoever I may be sent, to the frozen regions north, jungles of India, to the centres of civilisation of Europe, or to the wild haunts of the barbarous savages of America without murmuring or repining, and will be submissive in all things, whatsoever is communicated to me. I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants’ heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus. In confirmation of which I hereby dedicate my life, soul, and all corporal powers, and with the dagger which I now receive I will subscribe my name written in my blood in testimony thereof; and should I prove false, or weaken in my determination, may my brethren and fellow soldiers of the militia of the Pope cut off my hands and feet and my throat from ear to ear, my belly be opened and sulphur burned therein with all the punishment that can be inflicted upon me on earth, and my soul shall be tortured by demons in eternal hell forever. That I will in voting always vote for a Knight of Columbus in preference to a Protestant, especially a Mason, and that I will leave my party so to do; that if two Catholics are on the ticket I will satisfy myself which is the better supporter of Mother Church and vote accordingly. That I will not deal with or employ a Protestant if in my power to deal with or employ a Catholic. That I will place Catholic girls in Protestant families that a weekly report may be made of the inner movements of the heretics. That I will provide myself with arms and ammunition that I may be in readiness when the word is passed, or I am commanded to defend the Church either as an individual or with the militia of the Pope. All of which I,_______________, do swear by the blessed Trinity and blessed sacrament which I am now to receive to perform and on part to keep this my oath. In testimony hereof, I take this most holy and blessed sacrament of the Eucharist and witness the same further with my name written with the point of this dagger dipped in my own blood and seal in the face of this holy sacrament.

(He receives the wafer from the Superior and writes his name with the point of his dagger dipped in his own blood taken from over his heart.)

(Superior speaks:)

You will now rise to your feet and I will instruct you in the Catechism necessary to make yourself known to any member of the Society of Jesus belonging to this rank. In the first place, you, as a Brother Jesuit, will with another mutually make the ordinary sign of the cross as any ordinary Roman Catholic would; then one crosses his wrists, the palms of his hands open, and the other in answer crosses his feet, one above the other; the first points with forefinger of the right hand to the centre of the palm of the left, the other with the forefinger of the left hand points to the centre of the palm of the right; the first then with his right hand makes a circle around his head, touching it; the other then with the forefinger of his left hand touches the left side of his body just below his heart; the first then with his right hand draws it across the throat of the other, and the latter then with a dagger down the stomach and abdomen of the first. The first then says Iustum; and the other answers Necar; the first Reges; the other answers Impious. The first will then present a small piece of paper folded in a peculiar manner, four times, which the other will cut longitudinally and on opening the name Jesu will be found written upon the head and arms of a cross three times. You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:

From whither do you come? Answer: The Holy faith.

Whom do you serve? Answer: The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.

Who commands you? Answer: The Successor of St. Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.

Who received you? Answer: A venerable man in white hair.

How? Answer: With a naked dagger, I kneeling upon the cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred order.

Did you take an oath? Answer: I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, nor sex, nor condition; to be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my Superiors in all things without hesitation or murmuring.

Will you do that? Answer: I will.

How do you travel? Answer: In the bark of Peter the fisherman.

Whither do you travel? Answer: To the four quarters of the globe.

For what purpose? Answer: To obey the orders of my General and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfil the conditions of my oaths.

Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Vice-Regent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated.
