‘Through It All’––Have A Happy, Healthy Prosperous New Year!

3d-happy-new-year-wallpaper-photo    Just as oceans ebb and flow, moving far away from shores, and then roaring back with high unstoppable waves, so activities in years recede and return as they go and come.  Thus, 2014 is apt to be quite rocky, after a comparably peaceful year in 2013.  So expect things to rev up both in nature and among nations.

Clearly, it will be an almost impossible task to end the Syrian Civil War, but diplomats in the western world must try.  Few politicians, journalists or blog writers seem to understand that this war will eventually lead to World War III.

Perhaps they suffer from a dearth of knowledge about Bible prophecies, particularly those in the Books of Daniel and Revelation.  Hopefully, knowledgable  Bible scholars contribute to contemporary thinking in realms around the globe.

Those Bible Books point out that in these end times––after The Lord Jesus Christ has removed the Body of Christ (i.e. born-again Christians) from the earth––the most evil anti-Christ will emerge from Syria as Satan’s ultimate representative.

He will also rule over Turkey, Egypt and Greece––the other three nations in Alexander’s Empire, and eventually over those parts of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa that remain in the Revised Roman Empire.

As Bible inspired writing attests in Revelation 16: 12, “ . . . the great river Euphrates” will dry up “that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared,” and China and other Asian nations will march across to join anti-Christ in battle.

This wholly evil tyrant will battle Russia and other resistant nations to quell uprisings.  And he will set up his government’s seat in Iran’s Babylon. Perhaps this is why Israel is so concerned about the U.S. negotiating with Iran to end its sanctions. Genesis 10:8-10 dates Iran and Syria as earth’s oldest rebellious nations.

They both once ruled over Israel.  And ultimately, they wish to wipe that country off the map. Through the ongoing work of God’s Holy Spirit, millions more will accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  After which, they will suffer persecution, and eventually execution. But they will go to heaven in victory.

Live on earth will continue to get harder from present days forward.  Soon world-wide accepted identification will be necessary to buy food, or pay for life’s necessities.  Satan’s other representative, the False Prophet, will talk people into engraving that ‘religious’ identification onto their bodies.  Taking this ‘Mark of the Beast’ will condemn billions to spend eternal life with that Satanic trinity in Hell.
In the 1960s, a familiar hymn rang out through church choirs in the United States.  Verses of the hymn would talk about hard times, broken family life, false friends, etc.  But the chorus always brought this hope: “Through it all, I Have Learned to Trust in Jesus, I Have Learned to Trust in God.”

Christians around the world should keep this refrain in mind as they deal with events in 2014. Whatever may come in family, job, home or political upheaval, build up your faith through it all, trusting in The Lord Jesus and in Your Father God Almighty!  And don’t worry.  All of these things will soon be over!

Not Much Good News: A Year’s Review of 2013 Month by Month

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:59 AM
December 31, 2013

Pope-Benedict-XVI        2013 started off with a bang!  The Catholic church continued its decline from 2012. The European Union seemed to be recovering from its economic doldrums, while the U.S. still floundered in the same doldrums. And China, North Korea, Russia and Syria still marched the world toward its final war.

Throughout January the world continued to slog through scandals at the Vatican.  Who kept leaking negative stories about church secrets: The Pope’s cook, his butler, a jealous cardinal, or a nefarious priest? What about the Vatican bank, from which priests disappear with millions of dollars. The Mafia supposedly has money in that bank, and it made certain parish priests in Italy quite wealthy.

A banker’s daughter is kidnapped and Italian police open the grave of a Mafia kingpin to look for her body, and no body explains why a known Mafia criminal is buried on what is suppose to be holy ground.

Pope Ratzinger cries over the grave of a dead pope as if longing to be with him.  He has a heart operation, but still looks sickly.  And then there are the stacks of law suits over priests abusing children, accusing the Pope of negligent inaction.

Three retired bishops report that other bishops are being blackmailed for homosexual activities in Rome’s lowest brothels.  And Cardinal Paolo Romeo tells an audience in China that the pope will be assassinated within a year.

Finally in February, Pope Ratzinger resigned. It must have rocked cosmic forces: the same month Hezbollah joined Syria’s side in that country’s civil war, and Syria has been winning ever since.  Also North Korea launched its own nuclear weapons test, its third missile launch in several months. And the world shuttered!

In March, to conclude their weeks-long agonizing over who should be the next pope––not another German, or Italian, but maybe a choice from Africa or Latin America.  Finally, they compromised and named Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, the son of parents who migrated from Italy, to placate old Europe, as well as the new world.  A Jesuit, the new Pope chose the name Francis to identify himself with care for the poor.  Since then, he has dazzled the world.

Events heated up in April. When diplomats from Britain and France told the U. N. that Syria had used chemical weapons several times, the world had a huge hiccup. An earthquake in southwestern China killed 186, and injured over 8,000 more.  And a new bird flu broke out there taking at least two lives.

A Bangladesh factory making clothes for J.C. Penny, Benetton, etc. collapsed, killing 377 people; and two Boston-marathon-bombersbrothers, recent immigrants to the U.S. from Chechnya, blew up pressure cooker bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring at least 264 others. This nation has not healed from that astonishment.

Nor has England recovered from the two African Islamic migrants hacking down a young decorated British soldier as he walked toward his barracks last May.  Like the boys from Chechnya, the angrily insane killers did so to avenge Islamists England is supposedly killing in wars somewhere.  Both nations know they must deal with those migrants who hate us; they just don’t seem to know what to do!

The rest of the year 2013 coming soon.  But as Christian non-fiction Prophecy Books promise:  “One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter (Revelation 9: 12).” So look out for the woes coming in 2014!

Even China Threatened by North Korean Kim’s Uncle Assassination

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:27 AM
December 27, 2013

Jang Song-Thank-execution        More comes out on Kim Jong-un’s execution of his uncle, Jang Song-Thank.  Apparently Kim also eliminated several of Jang’s associates.  At the same time, two North Korean vice-premiers escaped to China.  By executing his uncle, Kim broke major adhesions of Korean culture, that is the family. It may be unforgivable.

The only legitimacy of Kim’s reign is inheritance from his father.  Moreover, his uncle spent years mentoring Kim, preparing him for the position. Jang was second in command for Kim’s father, just as he was for Kim.

Such betrayals threaten the legitimacy of rule in one of the three Communists countries left in the world. Further, as Matt of Intel 1913 explains: “The problem of succession in North Korea suggests that China may have a succession problem too. The problem being that more and more people feel the succession in each country is less legitimate. It really gets down to a function of time and succession method.”

Kim’s recklessness also impinges on China’s government.  Matt asserts:  “However, as of now, most Chinese china_nkoreathink that inheritance is not a legitimate system, regardless whether it is a true inheritance system or a disguised one in the form of inter-generational appointments. Both inevitably will be unsuccessful.” of ‘One Free Korea’ says China has called Kim to China to discuss North Korea’s “long-term stability and bilateral relations.” Chinese leaders are very “displeased with Jang’s ouster, and in case that message was too subtle, China also staged a 5,000-man night landing exercise on the Yellow Sea coast near North Korea.”

Joshua further explains that China thought it had veto power of Kim’s major decisions.  And assassinating the well-powered Jang was indeed major.  ‘One Free Korea’ also posits:  1) Chinese investors fear, because they are heavily involved in North Korea’s mines, and Kim’s spokesmen had denounced Jang for selling the tiny nation’s resources for cheap prices;

China must be worried that Kim’s actions mean a “destabilizing a nuclear-armed client state on its own border,” especially since that ruler keeps testing nuclear capabilities, although China asks him not to.

For Point 3) Wei Jingsheng of Epoch Times argues in ‘Execution of North Korean Regent Hints at Problems in Chinese Regime’ goes even deeper to say that Kim’s actions also suggest the illegitimacy of China’s reign:

“On the issue of transferring power, the one-party dictatorship preserves neither a relatively stable lineage inheritance, nor an electoral system . . .  Instead, it leads to an even more unstable state . . between elections among small cliques . . . the awareness level of the Chinese people has not declined to . . . thus a direct lineage inheritance of power already has no legitimacy in China.”

Ultimately, these rulers do not understand power’s source.  As Christian non-fiction prophecy books promise: “God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God (Psalm 62: 11).” But when the heads of China and North Korea face their end, they will comprehend that their power was dangerous, temporary and without meaning among eternal values.

Be Aware of These Times: More Goes On Than Most Comprehend!

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:15 AM
December 24, 2013

Earth-end-2012-movie        Followers of this BLOG, as well as, should be aware that our writers stress research on a few main areas that not only signal World War III, but also other end-time events foreseen in Biblical prophecies.

These areas include:  1) Global Warming as destroyer of earth, including human beings and animals; 2) The European Union and the Roman Catholic Church as revival of the Roman Empire; 3) Syria, Greece, Egypt and Turkey, as re-emergence of Alexander’s Empire; 4) Realignment of nations such as China, North Korea, Israel, the United States, etc.; and 5) Continuation of, and reparation for, all types of wars––i.e. economic, propaganda, political, cultural, in-space, etc.

Media presents these conundrums as if people and nature were the only participants. However, the Bible’s foretelling depict them with God either watching, tangentially involved, or as the Main Character.

Why would God be just A Watcher?  Because He gave this earth to Adam and His descendants to rule for a limited period of time––i.e. some 7,000 years.  However, Adam chose to give the power to rule earth over to the seducer, Satan.

Even under these circumstances, a few patriarchs––i.e. Noah, Enoch, Moses, David, Isaiah, etc.–– consciously decided to follow God instead of that devil. Some 2,000 years ago God sent His Son to allow those people who accept Him as Savior to step out from under evil’s domination and look to God as Protector and Provider.

Several times, both before and after Adam and Eve, God had enough of man’s sinfulness and weaknesses and completely destroyed the earth as men knew it.  As early as Genesis 1: 1 – 2, God upended the very perfect earth He had made, turning it into a planet “without form and void.”

Before the earth was divided into continents, men so yearned to worship Satan and to reach him, his angels, and demons among the stars that they built a city, Babylon, centered around a tower to reach into the stars (Genesis 10 and 11). Knowing they were in direct disobedience to God’s will they hurried in construction because they feared they would be scattered around the globe.

At that time, millions of people spoke one language, and practiced one completely moral-less pagan Earth-After-Pole-Shiftreligion––known today as Hellenism.  Again, to stop such rebellion, God:  1) Put confusion among them, changing languages so one could not understand another; 2) Used massive upheavals of waters beneath the earth to create seas and oceans, and thus divide the earth into continents; and 3) Fulfilled their fears by separating them into far-flung regions everywhere.

One concept of this phenomenon could be what we know today as a Polar Shift––a natural event caused by Global Warming that many earth-scientists, cosmologists and other fear today.  Major signals for that Shift are the rapidly melting Arctic and Antarctic Poles, as well as other iced mountain regions.

John White’s thorough study of this issue in his book ‘Pole Shift’ sites more than a dozen references from Bible historical books to prove that earth comes nears such judgments now.  Man’s propensity to sin, his meddling among the stars, and collective practices of pagan Hellenism calls for such judgment.  So we must add that as Number Six to the above warnings of coming end-time judgments.

Russia’s Paranoid Leader: Rule & Diplomacy By Fear & Intimidation

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 2:19 AM
December 22, 2013

Putin-offers-Ukraine        Paranoia in Russian president Vladimir Putin’s veins is seeping out into his foreign and domestic policies.  Having a huge land-rich nation is not enough. He Yearns to reestablish an Empire, and thus offers Ukraine $ 15 billion in cash and guaranteed low-cost oil deliveries, ignoring that Ukrainian people want unity with Europe. He also knocks Russian dissenters in line.  And he strongly backs Syria!

He suddenly closed down the government’s Novosti news agency, saying it gave too much air time to his opponents, replacing it with a supportive agency.  He has diminished the role of Prime Minister Medvedev, with whom he switches offices every election, and he publicly admits his nation faces huge problems.

At a recent news conference, ignoring his own history, he blithely promises to rein in corruption, and calls for Russian businesses to pay their fair share of taxes.  But he also acknowledged, what Reuter’s labels, “a phase of stagnation,” and what analyst Mikhail Delyagin warns is a “hostage of bureaucracy.”  In other words, Putin may be president, but ‘kleptocratic administrators’ run the country.

While important, these issues obscure Putin’s biggest fears––Muslim nations still under his control, as well as Muslims living within Russia.  As Matt of 1913 Intel writes: “ . . . Islamist threats emanating from the Caucasus region, North Caucasus and in particular Chechnya, represent a threat to Russian stability. . . Experienced Islamist fighters coming back from Syria could be a real problem.”

Understand that Mr. Putin backs Syria’s Assad because he re-enforces Shia Muslim rule––i.e. a few ruling over many.  The Muslims in those nations, as well as in Kazakhstan, Georgia,  Khiva, Tatarstan, etc., are all Sunni.  Upheaval by Sunni Muslims against Shia rule supposedly started Syria’s current civil war.

Moreover, some 50% of the soldiers in Russia’s military are Muslims.  The worry is how long will they agree to peacefully serve a Russian Orthodox nation. Another worry: how will Sunni Muslims returning from the Syrian front influence others in nations surrounding Russia, as well as those in its military, to revolt!

Putin also recognizes that while many of those soldiers, as well as other Muslims, want to permanently live in Restricted-voiceRussia, particularly in its capital Moscow, native Russians do not want them there––and many Russians have expressed displeasure on this issue with overt discrimination and even street riots.

Yes, Putin has a lot to worry about.  He recognizes what most Europeans don’t:  that the European Union itself is an empire.  That China is an empire. That the United States is an empire.  And that he needs the Ukraine, and all the other satellite nations close to Russia, if he is to pretend that Russia is still an empire.

Those are reasons for massive paranoia.  But then Putin should read Russian translations of Christian non-fiction prophecy books which promise that all nations and empires will fall to the Rule of The LORD Jesus Christ:  “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a Name which is above every name: That at The Name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God The Father (Philippians 2: 9 – 11).”

‘New World Order’: Most Churches Becoming One in These Last Days

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 22:43 PM
December 18, 2013

One-world-religionAmong the characteristics of what life is becoming in these last days is ‘The Push for a ‘One World’ Religion.’  This non-Christian religious merger is quickly coming upon the world––especially as orchestrated by the Catholic Church.

Former Polish President, Lech Walesa, advocates creation of what he calls “secular Ten Commandments” to unify the world: “We need to agree on common values for all religions . . . on which we will build the world of tomorrow.”

Walesa spoke at a Nobel Peace Prize Summit, with the Dalai Lama, former Soviet head, Mikhail Gorbachev, and actress Sharon Stone, all among hundreds of former Nobel winners, many of whom seemed to agree with him.

Reporter Jim Yardley writes that Pope Francis “promised friendship, respect and continued dialogue with other religious leaders, . . . pledging cooperation with Orthodox churches, describing the spiritual bond between Catholics and Jews as ‘very special’ and expressing gratitude to Muslim leaders.”

In his New York Times article, Yardley claims the pope said:  “The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of the promotion of friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions.”

Bartholomew I, First Patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church replied to the Pope:  “You have an enormous responsibility and task before God and before men. The unity of the Christian churches is the first and foremost of our concerns.”

Muslim leaders were also present at the Pope’s installment.  Imam Yahya Pallavicini, of the Italian Islamic Religious The-Pope-and-Muslim-LeadersCommunity, said:  “I think he will take inter-religious dialogue among people, he will make it closer to people.”

In ‘Should All Christians Unite with Catholics?’ Mike Gendron of Reaching explains: “Since the dawn of the new millennium we are witnessing the greatest push toward ecumenical unity the world has ever seen. The Roman Catholic Church is fervently building bridges to all Christian denominations.”

To those who warn of coming dissensions, Gendron responds: “ . . . contenders for the faith realize that the most dangerous lie is the lie which most closely resembles the truth.  Conversely, ecumenists consider anything that appears close to the truth as an opportunity for unity. Thus they embrace the false gospel of Catholicism because it is the most clever of all counterfeits.”

Bente and Abel Struksnæs of add in ‘Courting Rome’ further expound: “The strategy is clear: First unite the various Protestant denominations, then merge this group of churches with the Catholics.”  They write this push for unification comes out of the 1995 Jesuit General Conference in 1995.

“Through the ecumenical exertions of the Jesuits, The Catholic Church attempts to engage Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, various Protestant denominations, and others in dialogue.”  Several points:  1) Walesa is a Catholic; 2) Pope Francis, is a Jesuit; 3) He is ruled by the Jesuit General, or ‘Black Pope,’ who commands millions of Jesuit ‘troops’ around the world; 4) Just as Hitler did in WW2, those churches refusing to join these unifications will be persecuted and killed!

As Ecclesiastes 1: 9 in Bible Historical Books says:  “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”  So get ready for WW3. It will be WW2 all over again––only much much bigger and much more deadly!

Nazis, Catholics & Alexander’s Hellenists: Symbols, Beliefs & Gods

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 15:58 PM
December 16, 2013

Hellenistic-Thracian-pin    Those (hidden from most historical accounts) deviant sexual habits running rampant in Germany during the Catholic rule of the Nazi era actually connect that reign to ancient Greek Hellions paganism, continuing from Alexander’s Empire.

Hellenism’s multi-god, sexual ‘freedom’ types of worship spread from Alexander’s Empire into the succeeding Roman Empire.  Many of those worship practices envelope into The Catholic Church of the Holy Roman Empire.

Usually when historians discuss the Nazi swastika, they relate it to American Indian symbols.  Seldom is its relationship to the Hellenistic Thracian-pin well-known throughout Alexander’s kingdom.  However, this symbolism correctly relates Hitler’s reign to Hellenistic paganism.

Moreover, Hitler’s strict rearing in Catholicism, particularly the Jesuits, harken back to Hellenism.  Another important symbol connecting Catholicism to Hellenism is pagan multi-god worship at home altars or shrines.

Consider John Henry’s article, ‘The Domestic Church: 7 Steps to a Proper Catholic Home,’ which makes this strange statement: “The true head of the Catholic home is Christ, just as the Head of the Church is the Supreme Pontiff, His Holiness.”  Hmmm. Strange, God’s Word says Christ is the Head of the Church:

“. . . as the church is subject unto Christ (Ephesians 5: 24); “He is the Head of the Body, the Church (Colossians 1: 24); “And hath put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be the head over all things to the church (Ephesians  1: 22).”

After listing proper prayers (i.e. Fatima Prayer, Prayer to Guardian Angel, St. Michael prayer, etc.) in Section 5 Henry lists “basic items that should be placed on the [home] altar”: “Crucifix, Statue of Our Lady, Holy Water, icons (statues of Our Lord, Virgin, and/or Saints), Blessed Salt, Rosaries, Charcoal incense burner, Blessed Candles, vigil candles, and Baptismal candles, 1962 Roman Missal.”

Now compare this home altar to those advertised in modern Hellenistic homes.  In ‘Expectations III: Hellenism Tetraktines-ThreeLooks Like Hellenism,’ Kaye posts: “the structure of your rituals and the way you approach the Gods reasonably resembles home and cultic practices in the Hellenized Mediterranean world.”

In ‘PBP: Household Shrines’ for Baring the Aegis, the blogger writes:  “Hellenismos is a practice of the home. Daily ritual, family and piety to the Gods are fundamental.  My shrine to Zeus is a little affair as it only holds a Kathiskos and an offer place for incense. A Kathiskos is an offer jar of foodstuffs used to protect the household’s food storage. Typically, it has olive oil and water.”

Such practices as shires, multiple gods, home altars, and material objects on them have no prevalence among Protestant believers or their churches as such arrangements are considered to be idols, and historical books of the Old Testament forbid all idolatry. Although Orthodox churches keep artistic ‘icons’ of what are suppose to be Christ and Mary in their homes, they usually do not pray to them.

Cults, Sects, Half-Lies & The Truth: Twisting Words for Billions to Die

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 18:03 PM
December 12, 2013

Twisting-Scripture    As usual, forces of evil have no original thoughts.  Instead they ‘borrow’ from, and contort, existing truths to form half-believable lies, such as Lenin twisting The Lord’s Prayer and other parts of the Bible into the ‘State’ as God; and Hitler fabricating himself into The Lord of the 23rd Psalms, etc.

Now scholars have found that just as Communism and Nazism were built upon falsifications of Christianity and God’s Word––their related destroyer of faith in the True God––Islam––is also based on twisted versions of That Same Word!

In ‘Did Muhammad Exist?: An Inquiry into Islam’s Obscure Origins,’ Robert Spencer refutes historical background’s given for Muhammad’s life.  He insists that data about the prophet’s life only appeared 125 years after he is supposed to have died, and fighters in the Arabian wars didn’t mention him for 60 years.

Yehuda D. Nevo and Judith Koren in their work ‘Crossroads to Islam: The Origins of the Arab Religion and the Arab State,’ add in this study of Christian archeological in regions of the Byzantine Empire wars that Arabs were pagan when they defeated the empire, but they eventually adopted simplistic versions of “Judaeo-Christianity,” which by the 8th century had become the Arab religion.

While these two authors suggest that modern Islam began because the conquerors needed a controllable state religion, writers in Karl-Heinz Ohlig’s edited volume, ‘Early Islam: A Critical Reconstruction Based on Contemporary Sources,’ also agree that Islam was originally a Christian sect.

Ohlig’s second collection of articles, co-edited with Gerd-R.Puin, ‘Early Islam: A Critical Reconstruction Based on Contemporary Sources,’ go even further, positing that Islam’s theology was actually based on pre-Nicean, Syrian Christianity, contrived for political usage over the ages.

They further insists that terms referring to Muhammad as ‘the revered’ and ‘the praiseworthy’ are part of Christian language and symbols throughout the Muslim world.  For instance, they insist that the famous ‘Dome’ is etched with crosses and other Christian symbols.  These authors further make the startling statement that when Islamists refer to Muhammad, they actually speak of 8th century versions of The Lord Jesus Christ.

Various scholars thus conclude that the Islamic Bible is ‘borrowed’ from parts of Aramaic versions of God’s Word; that exposingfalseprophetsbannerIslamic depictions of the life of Muhammad are historic fiction conceived to ‘inspire’ followers to fight; and that, rather than being the inspired Word of God, the Koran  was taken from various parts of Persian and Christian writings over a period of more than 200 years.

Cults, sects and ‘break-aways’ from Biblical Christianity have continued since the days Jesus walked upon the earth.  Phony preachers, priests, prophets, and political rules use whatever parts of God’s Word they can to influence people to follow them instead of believing what God says in His Holy Word.

The major work on every Christian nonfiction book list must always and only be The Holy Bible in which Apostle John writes: “I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth (1 John 2: 21).” Apostle Paul further commands:  “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them Ephesians 5: 11).”

Gate to Hell in Turkey: One Re-Emerging Alexandrian Empire Nation

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 1:43 AM
December 12, 2013

Hot-Springs-Gate-Hell       Earlier this year another ‘Gate to Hell’ was found in Pamukkale, Turkey––near the ancient city of Hierapolis where elites resorted to hot springs and often to die. Turkey is one of four countries in Alexander the Great’s Re-emerging Empire.

According to Wikipedia, Greek writers––i.e. Strabo, Cassius Dio and Damascius––described this Gate as ‘The Plutonion,’ “a small cave, just large enough for one person to enter through a fenced entrance, beyond which stairs go down, and from which emerges suffocating carbon dioxide gas caused by underground geologic activity.”

Poisonous hot water releasing deadly odorous gas swiftly flowed through the chamber.  When people died from the gas, it was assumed that Pluto, god of the underworld, killed them.  People would pay a fee to ask Pluto’s oracle questions.

Castrated priests serving the god often crawled around the cave holding their breath or finding pockets of air to show they were immune to the poison. They then sold birds and other animals to visitors, so they could test the deadliness of the water chamber.  And for an offering, they allowed visitors to ask Pluto’s female oracles of wisdom for advice. These funds provided income for temple workers.

The Deccan Chronicle quotes Greek geographer Strabo: “This space is full of a vapor so misty and dense that one can scarcely see the ground. Any animal that passes inside meets instant death.  I threw in sparrows and they immediately breathed their last and fell.”  Founded in 2nd century B.C., Pluto’s worship place of death was finally closed by Christians in Turkey in the 6th century A.D.

Italian archaeologist Francesco D’Andria, who led the successful find, told Discovery News:  “We found the Plutonium by reconstructing the route of a thermal spring. Indeed, Pamukkale’s springs, which produce the famous white travertine terraces, originate from this cave.

“We could see the cave’s lethal properties during the excavation. Several birds died as they tried to get close to the warm dead-birdsopening, instantly killed by the carbon dioxide fumes.”  Interesting that dead birds––the highest flying creature God made on earth––symbolize the presence of evil.

The other three nations of Alexander’s kingdom are Syria, Greece and Egypt.  Thus, it is also interesting that one can presumably enter the Gates of Hell near Greece’s volcanoes where, according to National Geographic News, “a few sulfurous openings in the Earth promised access to the underworld.”

Of course, the pyramids of poverty and civil strife now reign in Egypt.  And hell on earth is taking place in Syria right now.  From its present civil war will emerge the final antiChrist and World War III.

Such findings of ancient gods, heathenism and deadly sacrifices revealed in these last days provide omens of the final evils now descending upon the earth.  In Luke 21: 7 – 25 of Bible inspired writing, The LORD Jesus Christ speaks of these:

“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.  And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring . . .”  Take heed!

Group, Individual, The Word: Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Muslim

posted by Dr. Jael Ever @ 18:24 PM
December 9, 2013

2011-11-OOYouth    Major conceptual differences arise between Protestant, Orthodox and Catholic branches claiming to be authentic Christianity as practiced in Europe,  the Middle East, and in the United States. These differences can be compared to Muslim beliefs pertaining to faiths, prophecies, and group vs. individual practices.

Adherence to Protestant faith is usually based on an individual at an age of intelligent understanding accepting Jesus Christ as his/her Savior.  From that point, the person can pray to God on his/her own as wished, without an intermediary between the praying person and God.  This is known as ‘born again’ salvation.

That person can then join a church for fellowship with other Christians, and to get teaching in God’s Word.  But church membership is not considered necessary for this Christian experience, nor is confessing ‘sin’ to an overseer. Again, such confession is generally seen as between the person and God in prayer.

Most Protestant and Orthodox churches greatly stress teaching and preaching of God’s Word, as it is considered necessary for believers to constantly ‘grow’ into a point of maturity for God’s service.  Orthodox church leaders––especially those in rural areas where people attend church daily––read a part of the Bible to the congregation at each service, thus covering the Holy Book in a year.

While Orthodox churches may have paintings of Jesus or apostles hanging in beautiful churches and other outward appearance seeming similar to Catholic practice,  they do not have statues of any representation, as these are thought to be idols.  Protestant churches usually have neither paintings or statues.

Catholic practices differ from these faiths in several areas: 1) Catholics are taught to pray to dead saints or statues rather than to God or Jesus Christ; 2) Birth into the church membership through infant christening, and later young child confirmation; 3) Thus, joined to the church, and not necessarily to Christ, Catholics must weekly confess sins to a priest, and take communion every Sunday (differing from Protestant and Orthodox which generally serve communion monthly without confession of sins to intermediaries, rather than directly to God);

4) Catholic Priests liturgical rites and practices are ritualistic, rather than  Biblical; (In fact most Catholics know very little about what is in God’s Word which was generally unavailable in Catholic-approved English translations until a few decades ago. Before that, Catholic Sunday Mass was in Latin, without giving congregations understanding); 5) Most Catholics generally base their faith on group participation––parents, godparents, priests, nuns, church attendance, etc.

While Protestant and Orthodox faiths rest on an individual’s commitment to a personal relationship with God, a Catholic’s faith is––from christening through a lifetime of seldom understood rituals––based on participation in group experience.

In Bible historical books, The LORD Jesus often says ‘whosoever’ to explain Christianity as between one person and religion_lgGod: “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on Me should not abide in darkness (John 12:46).”

Group ritualism under ‘top-down’ ‘pyramid-style’ dominance, rather than individual responsibility, likens Catholicism to Muslim religions. They also share another trait: Both groups plan to rule the world––by force if necessary.  Group-styled instructions––like indoctrination––makes group obedience much easier.
