Government, Media, Propaganda: The Image of the Beast. Why I Hate it All

I was asked by someone last evening why, it seemed, that I didn’t have much interest in discussing the current events going on in this country and around the world. Below is my basic response, edited in order to share with the public. This may help to explain where I am coming from with information that I share on this website.
There is seldom a day goes by that I don’t desire to simply pull the plug on all of this. Why do I keep doing this? I don’t want to anymore! But I keep feeling that maybe if I can reach one person that might cause them to think for themselves and seek Yehwah for answers instead of man-gods and governments, my work will not have been in vain.
I don’t know. This platform is being censored and controlled more and more with each passing hour. One day soon this website will be gone…probably before I have a chance to decide to pull the plug.
Hang in there! In the meantime, you have decisions to make.
~~~~~~~~~
I don’t know that it is lack of excitement in discussing issues as much as I don’t really follow any of it anymore. I find that all of it is a Satanic lie that is being used to destroy, distract, and deceive the masses in order that they do not keep their eyes on God. And it is working wonderfully. The world is insane. It is pointless to attempt to have a rational conversation with just about everybody.
I was having a bit of a conversation yesterday and I got pretty wound up telling this person how insane we all were because we are addicted (by design) to cellphones and social media. And I have said since the beginning of the technology that it would finish the destruction of society and civilization as we once knew it. I was right. I am right. God is right. I told this person how that we have conversations about this fact and how you “know” and “agree” and yet 5 mins later you got the Beast stuck in your face feeding on your uncontrolled desires to be filled with lies, lies and more lies.
God warned us that if we got caught up in this stuff that one day his people would be gone and perhaps the rest would ask, “What happened?” Or maybe not. That’s the insanity that exists. We mouth that FB, cell phones etc. are terrible. We mouth that the media lies. We mouth that government lies and is corrupt and evil and yet that’s where we turn all our attention. It is insanity to seek help and answers from those that have caused our insanity.
I told this person to just look at what government and media are doing to people. There is absolutely no way to find a reason that all of it is nothing but the work of Satan. I’ve never seen so much anger, hatred, and emotion as I am seeing from people who want to believe the lies. There is no reason to think or believe that anything we are being told or are reading about is truth…NONE! And yet we can’t help ourselves. BE NOT DECEIVED we are told by God and yet we practice and perpetuate the ultimate in deception. How do I know this? Because nobody believes they are deceived. They believe they are the holders of truth. All else is wrong.
I don’t belong to any of this world. I have nothing in common with anything in this world except my trees, garden, digging dirt and going to the bathroom in the morning. The rest of it I want to see destroyed. It can’t come quickly enough.
I was quite vocal yesterday telling this person that we all sit around with our cell phones stuck in our faces, mesmerized by the Beast, the anti-christ, and then we run off to church where they got it all messed up and tell people that one day in the future this beast, this antichrist will rise up and control the people and cause them to only buy and sell if they have his mark. Like it was some long into the future event and they are already living it. Prophecy has come true. They are deceived. They are being lied to. They carry it with them constantly and can’t live without the “image of the beast.” It is destroying all who go to it. And we going WILLINGLY!
And right now probably this person sits on the couch with the “Image” reading lie after lie after lie, believing they have the truth. More than likely they will waste many hours of their life today glued to that evil piece of shit that I have hated since the day it was created. And we thought television was going to destroy society.
So, this person being no different than the rest of us – we know not what we do – agrees with all I said yesterday and then turns and tells me how something has to be done to correct all these “crises” etc. that we are being told are taking place. All I said was, “So you don’t agree that there is no reason to listen to any of that because we don’t know what is true and what isn’t true.”
They said they are trying to find out the truth. And I said you prove my point. The insanity of stating you think the media and the Internet, FB etc. is all lies but yet we select which lying entity we will take information from. WHY? Because they say things we want to hear? YUP!
Insanity, Insanity, Insanity. Jesus come quickly. I can’t take this much longer.

Acknowledging a Cultural Crisis, Seeking The Wrong Solution

I’ve been involved with media platforms as tools of promoting thought, propaganda, news, subjective discussions, etc. for long enough to have an understanding of how it can and does work. One method of flooding the airwaves is a daily routine but something not everyone is even aware of.

Most “news” agencies are not independent creators of news and information. They collect it from one source and then the Media, as a whole, becomes a giant echo chamber. The question might then become is this a planned event or is it happenstance? It might be both but be assured that if someone wants to rapidly spread something, all systems are in place to carry out a massive and rapidly spreading propaganda machine.

It seems on several occasions of late writers are talking about America’s “Cultural Crisis.” Let’s not kid ourselves. If you or I perceive that America’s Culture is in crisis, is that not our opinion – a subjective determination based on our own lifestyle and moral compass, if we have one at all?

But let’s not debate whether America’s Culture is in crisis. It is being discussed and therefore there must be a reason.

One of the reasons I suspect that the Parkland, Florida school shooting was a planned out event is because of what transpired after the shooting. It is virtually impossible to have put together all of the events that transpired after the school shooting unless at least some or many of those plans were in place beforehand. No other shooting event caused such a seemingly united attempt at addressing the destruction of the Second Amendment with proportionately little attention given to a “Cultural Crisis” up until now.

The point of all this is to draw attention to what the Media is doing in its plans to promote and perpetuate what it intends to or are told to do.

So we have articles and opinion pieces showing up attempting to address a “Cultural Crisis.” Why?

Maybe someday we will understand all the ins and outs as to who and what is behind the mass Media but for now we must deal with it and hope and pray that our knowledge base is strong enough and accurate enough to recognize when we are being bamboozled and when we are not, and/or we can divide truth from fiction.

As I see it, one of the problems with any of the discussions I have read about a cultural crisis isn’t about what constitutes this crisis but the solutions offered to counter the crisis. It seems that whether you are a progressive/liberal or a conservative, because of our indoctrination we tend to always assume the high ground and that we have the answers. It only becomes necessary to take the high ground when solutions offered are only presented as being from the Right or the Left as though those are the only two places where answers are found.

For regular readers, recall that I have often said that one of the more serious issues Americans face in this country is that we have all become programmed to see everything as either Right or Left- problems are right or left, solutions are right or left.

With all this in mind, two recent articles were sent to me that attempt to address America’s cultural crisis and the threats driving this nation toward civil war.

In John Hawkings piece published at Townhall, he lists “7 Forces Driving America Toward Civil War,” he mentions as two items, “Lack of a Shared Culture” and “Moral Decline.” While the acknowledgment of these two items is presented, both are given as problems caused by the false paradigm of Left vs. Right, and thus any proposals for solutions are therefore given within that same context.

Hawkins doesn’t necessarily present his discussion on culture as being in crisis, I would suppose that if he deems it worthy of an ingredient that may ultimately lead to civil war, then one might conclude he considers the issues confronting the American culture are in crisis.

The author’s idea of a moral decline isn’t that much in line with what I would describe as a moral decline. Hawkins sees the moral decline as “A large number of Americans HAVE LOST their principles, manners and virtue and it shows through from the sort of politicians they elect, to their rudeness online, to the sort of shallow hedonism and fame whoring they find appealing.”

No solutions are offered.

It should be said that a moral decline and a cultural crisis go hand in hand and cannot be separated.

The second article is a Lee Edwards piece published in the National Review. His work goes quite a bit deeper into history and offering quotes and the work of many conservatives from the past up until the present. Edwards offers existing past performances, mostly including those of Russell Kirk, as the solution to America’s Cultural Crisis.

Again, there is little argument about those things in our society that are listed as being a problem. He quotes Judge Robert Bork when he warned: “We are on the road to cultural disaster.” Bork blames Liberalism: “radical egalitarianism becomes tyranny and radical individualism descends into hedonism.”

I’m not fond of these kinds of statements because in describing egalitarianism and individualism, both are qualified with the subjective adjective “radical.” It makes it more difficult to completely understand what the owner of those words really meant. I work very hard at my individualism but I see none of that as even approaching hedonism. Does that mean my support of individualism is not radical? Where is the line drawn? Not to get off topic.

It’s difficult to argue with Edwards’ assessment of the results of a progressive lifestyle which basically views all things in what some of us would call a post-normal society – wrong is right, black is white, bad is good, etc.

He also lists C. Northcote Parkinson’s 6 Stages of Decadence – political over-centralization, excessive taxes and government interference, top-heavy intrusive government, crooks and criminals in government, debt, liberal sentimentality.

Edwards uses Kirk’s words describing those issues that need to be addressed to expose the liberal agenda that is driving America’s culture into crisis: militant secularism, soft socialism, legalistic internationalism, rabid egalitarianism, arrogant relativism, and radical societal change.

All of this and a few words about the water that Donald Trump must walk on and the solution is to begin a systematic approach to rebuild our culture on conservative principles. Many so-called conservative principles I see as far better, at least from the perspective that those principles include a certain degree of liberty and individualism. But these are still man’s values and solutions.

Included in the suggested solutions is a call to look to a higher existence in order to make us into a “good” society. This is typical of Catholicism’s call to their gOD and not our Creator. Until the American Society individually and as a whole can seek Yahweh for guidance and direction, man’s solutions will fail. That is the reason we are where we are at now.

It is mostly a cop-out to claim the high ground when Americans say we are an “exceptional” nation, basically good, who gives a lot of money to charity, etc. etc. but isn’t this really a lot about easing our guilt phobias?

Not all givers are this way but to live the lifestyles so prevalent in American Culture, which is decadent, selfish, hedonistic, and perverse, then pop into the church, give a few bucks, somehow makes us a good society?

It’s a daily event now that we read about some display of our radical Godless society – mass murders, random killings, terrorism, evil bloody attacks, etc. and we want to blame liberalism for them, believing that conservativism wouldn’t do those things.

Our culture continues to move further and further away from Yahweh. The Scriptures told us this would happen and here it is. Commend those who want to expose the realities of our culture and offer their solutions. Real solutions can come from only one place. It must begin with the individual. Isn’t this why a Godless society strives to destroy individualism?

If we all get on the right track, all the rest will no longer be a problem.

Yahweh Gives, Man Takes Away (Known as Stealing)

I was sent a news story that actually appears in the Western AG Reporter (online – free subscription required). There is nothing special or unique about this story. It seems to be repeated every day. A man struggles to exercise the commands and rights given him by his Creator in order to make a living raising ranch animals.

I can only speak for what is obviously going on in America with a perverted love fest between misled and misguided citizens and animals in general.

We’ve all heard the cliche love is blind. Well, there is so much unnatural “love” for animals, much of the inhabitants of this country are so blinded they are failing to see Yahweh’s purpose in his creation of all animals and the “dominion” he gave his children over that resource.

Much of what the Scriptures talk about concerning unnatural affection for any animal is addressing having sex with an animal. We know that exists and has for centuries. This is not the perversion of which I am referring.

Some people also like to cherry-pick passages from Scripture that they believe instructs us not to “abuse” the animals. The King James Bible online groups together their idea of verses instructing us about animal cruelty. I will tell you now it is near impossible to understand the verses selected without having the full context, do yourself a favor and do your homework. In general, Yahweh tells us that we should take care of our beasts of burden, much in the same way that a man that makes his living driving a truck should take care of his truck. It is difficult for most people to separate their understanding of the differences between animal cruelty and responsibly taking care of the resource Yahweh gave us.

Let’s look at the Book of Genesis, Chapter 1 beginning at verse 24 where Moses describes Yahweh’s creation of the animals of the world and describes His intent and purposes. (Note: Contained in [brackets] you will find word, terms, and definitions from the original Hebrew in hopes that it might help you better understand.)

24 ¶ Moreover God said, Let the earth bring forth [yâtsâ’ – go (causatively bring) out, in a great variety of applications, literally and figuratively, direct and proximate] the living thing [nephesh – a breathing creature, that is, animal or (abstractly) vitality; used very widely in a literal, accommodated or figurative sense] to his kind, cattle, and that which creepeth, and the beast of the earth according to his kind, and it was so.

25 And God made the beast of the earth according to his kind, and the cattle according to his kind, and every creeping thing of the earth according to his kind: and God saw that it was good.

26 Furthermore God said, Let us make man in our image according to our likeness, and let them rule [râdâh – to tread down, that is, subjugate; specifically to crumble off: – (come to, make to) have dominion, prevail against, reign, (bear, make to) rule, (-r, over), take.] the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over the beasts, and over all the earth, and over everything that creepeth and moveth on the earth.

27 Thus God created the man in his image: in the image of God created he him: he created them male and female.

28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, Bring forth fruit, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, [ kâbash –to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: – bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.] rule over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the heaven, and over every beast that moveth upon the earth.

29 And God said, Behold, I have given unto you every herb bearing seed, which is upon all the earth, and every tree, wherein is the fruit of a tree bearing seed: that shall be to you for meat. [‘ôklâh – food: – consume, devour, eat, food, meat.]

30 Likewise to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the heaven, and to everything that moveth upon the earth, which hath life in itself, every green herb shall be for meat, and it was so. (emboldening added.)

There are key points to consider. Verse 26 refers to “dominion” or “rule” depending on which translated version you are using. That is why I refer back to the original written Word in Hebrew. The Hebrew word “râdâh” means to subjugate, to have dominion over, to rule, to take. The Hebrew language is different than our “English” language. One Hebrew word can have many meanings and uses. However, it appears this particular word has a narrowly focused meaning.

Yahweh commanded Adam to take control over all of these things and fill the earth but most importantly that all these things were provided for “meat” – meaning food to eat.

But I realized there are other issues at play here and therein lies many of the difficulties in sharing of those resources that our Creator gave us.

The first big obstacle might be that you don’t believe in Yahweh and that He created all things. Perhaps it’s Evolution or some other belief. That is fine with me. I have no intention of trying to force you to change your ways simply because you don’t believe the same as me. I only expect the same in return. You want to take all from me. I want only to take what is responsible to “fill the earth” and sustain, have dominion over, the resource to ensure its healthy existence. Isn’t that what Yahweh intended?

Which brings us to another very serious problem. Many people don’t care what millions of us believe and what we choose to practice. Their selfishness and greed cause them to demand – to demand such things as no more subjugating, ruling, taking, and having dominion over the beasts of the field, the fishes in the waters and fowl of the air for MEAT (food). They demand to deny me that gift of Yahweh and yet I demand nothing of them.

I have a deep appreciation of animals. They are Yahweh’s creation. But I also have a deep appreciation of what He told Adam was the purpose of those resources and it was not to let them become diseased and a useless object to only be looked up at one’s whim. To control, to rule over, to subjugate and have dominion of the beasts of the earth, fishes of the sea, and fowl of the air doesn’t mean hands off and let them do their own thing.

If it was intended by Yahweh that His Creation would “balance itself” he would have told us so and given different instructions.

He didn’t!

Differentiating the Powers

The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus, Book XI, Chapter 3, Sections 1-6

2. Now, in the first year of the king’s reign, Darius feasted those that were about him, and those born in his house, with the rulers of the Medes, and princes of the Persians, and the toparchs of India and Ethiopia, and the generals of the armies of his hundred and twenty-seven provinces. But when they had eaten and drunk to satiety, and abundantly, they every one departed to go to bed at their own houses, and Darius the king went to bed; but after he had rested a little part of the night, he awaked, and not being able to sleep any more, he fell into conversation with the three guards of his body, and promised, that to him who should make an oration about points that he should inquire of, such as should be most agreeable to truth, and to the dictates of wisdom, he would grant it as a reward of his victory, to put on a purple garment, and to drink in cups of gold, and to sleep upon gold, and to have a chariot with bridles of gold, and a head tire of fine linen, and a chain of gold about his neck, and to sit next to himself, on account of his wisdom; “and,” says he, “he shall be called my cousin.” Now when he had promised to give them these gifts, he asked the first of them, “Whether wine was not the strongest?”–the second, “Whether kings were not such?” — and the third, “Whether women were not such? or whether truth was not the strongest of all?” When he had proposed that they should make their inquiries about these problems, he went to rest; but in the morning he sent for his great men, his princes, and toparchs of Persia and Media, and set himself down in the place where he used to give audience, and bid each of the guards of his body to declare what they thought proper concerning the proposed questions, in the hearing of them all.

3. Accordingly, the first of them began to speak of the strength of wine, and demonstrated it thus: “When,” said he,” I am to give my opinion of wine, O you men, I find that it exceeds every thing, by the following indications: It deceives the mind of those that drink it, and reduces that of the king to the same state with that of the orphan, and he who stands in need of a tutor; and erects that of the slave to the boldness of him that is free; and that of the needy becomes like that of the rich man, for it changes and renews the souls of men when it gets into them; and it quenches the sorrow of those that are under calamities, and makes men forget the debts they owe to others, and makes them think themselves to be of all men the richest; it makes them talk of no small things, but of talents, and such other names as become wealthy men only; nay more, it makes them insensible of their commanders, and of their kings, and takes away the remembrance of their friends and companions, for it arms men even against those that are dearest to them, and makes them appear the greatest strangers to them; and when they are become sober, and they have slept out their wine in the night, they arise without knowing any thing they have done in their cups. I take these for signs of power, and by them discover that wine is the strongest and most insuperable of all things.”

4. As soon as the first had given the forementioned demonstrations of the strength of wine, he left off; and the next to him began to speak about the strength of a king, and demonstrated that it was the strongest of all, and more powerful than any thing else that appears to have any force or wisdom. He began his demonstration after the following manner; and said,” They are men who govern all things; they force the earth and the sea to become profitable to them in what they desire, and over these men do kings rule, and over them they have authority. Now those who rule over that animal which is of all the strongest and most powerful, must needs deserve to be esteemed insuperable in power and force. For example, when these kings command their subjects to make wars, and undergo dangers, they are hearkened to; and when they send them against their enemies, their power is so great that they are obeyed. They command men to level mountains, and to pull down walls and towers; nay, when they are commanded to be killed and to kill, they submit to it, that they may not appear to transgress the king’s commands; and when they have conquered, they bring what they have gained in the war to the king. Those also who are not soldiers, but cultivate the ground, and plough it, and when, after they have endured the labor and all the inconveniences of such works of husbandry, they have reaped and gathered in their fruits, they bring tributes to the king; and whatsoever it is which the king says or commands, it is done of necessity, and that without any delay, while he in the mean time is satiated with all sorts of food and pleasures, and sleeps in quiet. He is guarded by such as watch, and such as are, as it were, fixed down to the place through fear; for no one dares leave him, even when he is asleep, nor does any one go away and take care of his own affairs; but he esteems this one thing the only work of necessity, to guard the king, and accordingly to this he wholly addicts himself. How then can it be otherwise, but that it must appear that the king exceeds all in strength, while so great a multitude obeys his injunctions?”

5. Now when this man had held his peace, the third of them, who was Zorobabel, began to instruct them about women, and about truth, who said thus: “Wine is strong, as is the king also, whom all men obey, but women are superior to them in power; for it was a woman that brought the king into the world; and for those that plant the vines and make the wine, they are women who bear them, and bring them up: nor indeed is there any thing which we do not receive from them; for these women weave garments for us, and our household affairs are by their means taken care of, and preserved in safety; nor can we live separate from women. And when we have gotten a great deal of gold and silver, and any other thing that is of great value, and deserving regard, and see a beautiful woman, we leave all these things, and with open mouth fix our eyes upon her countenance, and are willing to forsake what we have, that we may enjoy her beauty, and procure it to ourselves. We also leave father, and mother, and the earth that nourishes us, and frequently forget our dearest friends, for the sake of women; nay, we are so hardy as to lay down our lives for them. But what will chiefly make you take notice of the strength of women is this that follows: Do not we take pains, and endure a great deal of trouble, and that both by land and sea, and when we have procured somewhat as the fruit of our labors, do not we bring them to the women, as to our mistresses, and bestow them upon them? Nay, I once saw the king, who is lord of so many people, smitten on the face by Apame, the daughter of Rabsases Themasius, his concubine, and his diadem taken away from him, and put upon her own head, while he bore it patiently; and when she smiled he smiled, and when she was angry he was sad; and according to the change of her passions, he flattered his wife, and drew her to reconciliation by the great humiliation of himself to her, if at my time he saw her displeased at him.”

6. And when the princes and rulers looked one upon another, he began to speak about truth; and he said, “I have already demonstrated how powerful women are; but both these women themselves, and the king himself, are weaker than truth; for although the earth be large, and the heaven high, and the course of the sun swift, yet are all these moved according to the will of God, who is true and righteous, for which cause we also ought to esteem truth to be the strongest of all things, and that what is unrighteous is of no force against it. Moreover, all things else that have any strength are mortal and short-lived, but truth is a thing that is immortal and eternal. It affords us not indeed such a beauty as will wither away by time, nor such riches as may be taken away by fortune, but righteous rules and laws. It distinguishes them from injustice, and puts what is unrighteous to rebuke.”

Building The Road To Fascism

Revelation 13: 7,8 – And it was given unto him to make war with the Saints, and to overcome them, and power was given him over every kindred, and tongue, and nation.

Therefore all that dwell upon the earth, shall worship him,…”

Satan gives power to the “Beast” that rises up out of the sea. The Beast is described as “having seven heads, and ten horns, and upon his horns were ten crowns…”

This power shall rule the earth for 2 1/2 years. But, take a look. What is being described here?

Fascism – “a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

If “all that dwell upon the earth” are going to worship him [Beast/Satan] then all that remain must WANT to worship him. For that to happen, when that time comes, then a fascistic rule must be desired of the people and not necessarily forced on them.

How then, is the road to fascism being paved? Well, it’s right in front of your noses. The symbology is everywhere. You just need to open your eyes to see it.

This is the symbol of Fascism. It’s called Fasces:

Where are very common places that you will find this symbology? And have you ever asked yourself why it would appear in these places? Especially within a country and the government halls that rules over a country said to be found in Truth…a “free” country, where each individual is free to seek Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness?

On the wall where every member of Congress is daily reminded of their role:

This is what most ignorant Americans call the “Statue of Freedom” which adorns the dome of the U.S. Capitol building. I might ask how freedom and fascism exist on the same statue. If you can’t find the fasces, look to the base upon which the statue stands.

The designers and the builders of the Lincoln Memorial decided to place two fasces, one under each hand of Lincoln. Isn’t that a bit strange?

Perhaps carried around in the pockets of millions of “free” Americans every day. E Pluribus Unum = Out of many, one. Hmmm!

Who is this fella?

The fasces show up in many places – so much so we pay no attention to it. I suppose some would call it the boiling frog syndrome. And, because most Americans trust their government, if they took the time to look into why the fasces exists, they will be told a lie and will believe it. Fascism already rules.

If you return back to the top and examine again the definition of Fascism, you and I have some serious questions to ask ourselves – the first one is do we want to lose our individualism and be told what to do, how to live, and what to eat as well as when we can do that?

In the very recent past, many Americans welcomed a more deliberate move toward fascist rule when Barack Obama was elected president. Millions of Americans willingly worshipped the man and welcomed his dictatorial rule. It wasn’t because he was a Democrat.

At present, millions are now doing the same with Donald Trump. Regardless of the wrongs he does, the True Believers will, unwaveringly, follow him and his fascistic ways. It isn’t because he is a Republican.

There is true danger in ceding your individualism over to a centralized authority. Some of us are seeing the results; others willingly remain blinded. In time, a power will emerge, it will rise up out of the “sea” and will cause those that dwell on the earth to worship that power and they will be completely ruled by the dictates of one evil principality.

The road is paved. You’ll walk down it. Dare to get off it.

To Understand: Technology, Artificial Intelligence, The Beast, Bible Prophecy

*Editor’s Note* – A bit over a year ago I wrote the below article, shared it with a couple of family members and then saved it away for good keeping. After watching a video today, one that was posted on this website by everyone’s favorite contributor, Rattler Rider, I thought it was time to take this work out of mothballs and share it.

Please consider reading it, with an open mind of course, and then watching the video that follows. Both have very much in common. 

I am guilty of one thing. My imagination is limited as you will see when you watch the video. I think my general thoughts on this issue are worthy of consideration but I am incapable of imagining what technology and “Artificial Intelligence” is, has, and will do to all of us.

Revelation 13:16,17

I’ve been doing some studying/research into these two verses of Scripture and asking Heavenly Father to cause His Spirit of Truth to guide me. Here are some thoughts. First, the two verses as found in the 1599 Geneva Bible:

16 And he made all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads.

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.”

I took some of the words of these two verses and began examining the original Hebrew and Greek text in order to better understand the meaning. Here’s what I have found.

Right, wrong or indifferent, many people have been taught that the “mark of the beast” is perhaps like even a tattoo, showing the number 666 on the forehead or the right hand. Is this accurate? I ask, not to be caught up in unimportant details, however, verse 18 explains about having “wisdom,” which can only come from our Savior and Heavenly Father.

I’m not going to go into a whole lot of detail but I will point out the following:

The “mark” is mostly straightforward. A mark, as from the original Hebrew can mean a “scratch” or an “etching.” It can also mean a “stamp” as in a stamp of servitude. Interesting this mark? It is obvious that such a “mark” is a means of recognition.

The Scripture says that the “Beast” will force everyone (or make every attempt to do so) receive “his mark.” [As to the “Beast,” that identity most likely requires a completely new set of studies. The “Beast” in this context is most commonly recognized as being the “Anti Christ,” and/or the system/conglomeration belonging to and in control of, the Anti Christ/Beast.] I will leave that for the moment.]

This mark will be “in” one of two locations on our bodies. The Scripture says so.

Let’s look at the “in” as used in the Hebrew. It can have more general meaning than what, in modern-day English, we most often refer to as “in.” We might think of “in” as being a precise location – in the eye, or in my ear, or in my hand. However, the Hebrew use of the word (epi) is used in general terms to describe a general place. Understand that I’m not suggesting that the use of this word doesn’t or can’t suggest a specific place, i.e. “on” the right hand or “on” the forehead – it might even mean “in” the hand or “in” the forehead. I’m only stating that the Hebrew term has several meanings and uses, some to include nonspecific places, including “near,” ”beside,” or “touching.”

We now look at the word “hand.” “Cheir” (“C” pronounced as “K”) or “khire” can mean the literal hand. It can also mean power or an instrument of power/authority.

The forehead, as used here, can have indistinct meaning as well. The word “metopon” can, in fact, mean the specific place of the forehead. But it is also used to suggest the face, or anywhere on or near the face.

Interesting.

Before getting a closer look and thoughts about verse 17, let me offer these ideas.

Evidently, the “Beast” is going to require everyone to have his “mark,” either on or near the hand or on or near the face/forehead – and maybe other options (see below).

We don’t know what the mark will be. I might be a tattoo but I doubt it. That would mean probably more people would oppose having a tattoo – for the wrong reasons – put on their face or hand. Think of the notorious murderer Charles Manson who has a tattoo of a Nazi swastika on his forehead. Even though tattoos these days seem to run rampant, it still remains but only in a small percentage of the population.

The “mark” might be a microchip, suggested by many, implanted into our face/forehead or hand/wrist. I might suggest that these implants are done without our knowledge but that seems a bit contrary to what the Scriptures tell us. It appears we will know the purpose of having this “mark,” although we might not know specifically by whom it is administered, therefore I have my doubts that a visible “666” will exist on the forehead or on the hand.

Consider that a “mark” may already exist. Perhaps we already have a “mark” used for buying and selling. I’m talking about our eyes (iris scan) and thumb or fingerprint. In the Hebrew, this idea does not seem contrary to possible translations. Remember, I am approaching the “mark” as a means of identification. For what other purposes might the “Beast” need a “mark?”

Just some thoughts and the reason for them is that I believe it is obvious that we are not going to be asked to do something very radical. We know that over time, the human brain can be manipulated by evil powers to dumb down certain things and that in time (how long?) we could be trained to accept something as radical as a big tattoo, or maybe even a brand from a hot branding iron, the way savages did it with slaves years ago.

I think we are wrongfully taught that all of us will have to have some “stamp” showing 666 on us. The Scriptures don’t tell us that. So let’s look at verse 17, which I discovered something I had never noticed before. Here’s the verse again:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.

Read carefully what the verse says. It says “no man might buy or sell” unless he has the “mark.” The next word is very important. It says “OR.” “…no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark ‘OR’ the name of the beast, ‘OR’ the number of his name.”

Here I see that we might have three choices or that we need one of three identifiable instruments to buy and sell that are approved by “the beast.” What does that mean?

Verse 18 tells us that the number of the beast is the number of a man. We read that in the formation of “The Mysteries” around the same time as the rise of Nimrod and Old Babylon, the number of 666 was given to the original head of “The Mysteries,” – Janus. Janus or E-anush (Chaldee) means “The Man.” The Man was the fabricated false god of the Mysteries. Janus is also the same existence as Saturn. History tells us this. We know how there were so many names to describe the same person which makes the etymology of these languages extremely difficult to follow. (Satan: the author of confusion).

If we now know that the Mysteries gave the number 666 as one of the “mysteries” to the enlightened, as the number that gives title to Janus and that Janus is the same as Saturn, we also know that the Pope outwardly claims, although people choose to put on blinders, to be Saturn himself. If this is Truth and we follow the logical progression, wisdom might tell us that the “number of the man” i.e. 666 is the number of the Pope, the Image of the Anti-Christ. Isn’t it all that makes sense? Or not.

So let’s look again. The Image of the Anti-Christ is the Pope who carries with him the number of a man – 666. Will the Pope and his power structure, which we have been able to examine with the Spirit of Truth, have in place (or already has in place) a system that can be used in order that “small and great, rich and poor, free and bond” might buy and sell, i.e. to be able to eat to live? Readers that don’t understand the expansive power that encompasses the entire Earth by the Vatican, need to get busy and learn all about it. How else, can you recognize who you are choosing to follow?

Will those who are drinking the wine from the Cup of the Whore of Babylon even realize they are willingly taking the “mark” so that they can buy or sell? I doubt very seriously that anything that is part of this controlling instrument to buy and sell will be directly identifiable with the number 666, and yet if you polled the population of the world, are not they already so brainwashed and hung up on 666 that they won’t know it when it happens? They will or might be looking for an easily identifiable 666 and they don’t even know now who controls all the banking in the world. Let he who has wisdom?

Perhaps.

When the time comes, the Image of the Anti-Christ, the Pope, will be consumed by or possessed by, Satan. This is the point in which the “Beast” will cause all those without his “mark,” the instrument to buy and sell, to be killed.

But we need to go back and look again at verse 17. That Scripture tells us that in order to buy and sell, or in other words we must be a follower of the Anti-Christ, we must either have his “mark” OR his “name” or the “number of his name.”

I’m thinking, “What’s in your wallet?”

I might have the mark of the beast right in my wallet right now. I have a bank debit card, with a microchip in it. All banking is controlled by the City of London, which is owned and controlled by the Pope/Vatican, the Image of the Anti-Christ. Is my credit/debit card number, and all associated information stored on this system of banking, “the number of his name?”

We also know that the technology is also being used in which an iris scan is done, or a finger/thumb print scanned, in order to complete a transaction. Nobody identifies any of this as being done by “a number of a man.” We are still looking for the obvious 666.

I’m sure there are holes in this and I’m not saying it’s just exactly how things will and are going to be. I do know that we are very heavily deceived and along with that deception, we have wrongfully been taught certain things that are NOT the Truth. The Jesuits are teaching everywhere. They are doing this to mislead and to distract. How are we going to know when we are following Satan and when we are following the Savior if we don’t recognize and understand what’s going on around us?

Just some ideas to think about…not to obsess.

An Aristocracy Headed by Yahweh, a People of Happiness

*Editor’s Note* – In the historic documents of Flavius Josephus, specifically “The Works of Josephus: Complete and Unabridged,” Book 4 and Chapter 8, Section 2, we find what is written below. As a preamble to this section, I first want to somewhat apologize (although not my work) for how the piece is written, i.e. as one long paragraph. In today’s world, few people can focus long enough to read the below work say nothing about deciphering it and finding understanding. Written work today is presented in short, choppy, sentences and paragraphs to match the manufactured attention spans of most. However, it is of my opinion that there is much knowledge and comparative understanding to gain by reading the below and then rereading it.

“Titus Flavius Josephus born Yosef ben Matityahu was a first-century Romano-Jewish scholar, historian and hagiographer, who was born in Jerusalem” (link). The portion of his work, gathered from ancient historical documents, is presented as translated by William Whiston.

The quote is from Moses. He gathered his congregation to inform them that at the age of 120 it was time to pass the leadership of the Israelites, near the end of their 40-year wanderings in the “wilderness,” on to a successor as appointed by Yahweh – Joshua.

In so doing, he addresses the congregation and explains the only way in which they can find happiness and prosperity. Following this speech, he leaves with the leaders and people, in written form, “suggestions” as to the structure of an aristocratic government, one in which he claims is the one that will work, provided that the leader(s) of the Israelites seeks Yahweh and follows his commands. To do this, and to pass this down to the people, requires amazing leadership, of which cannot ever be found on this earth again. 

What this writing gives us, is a partial explanation of how Yahweh’s governmental structure for man works. Looking at modern-day governments, it’s easy to see that man’s governmental structure fails – as any honest historian will tell you.

Throughout this time, and under the direction of Yahweh, no appointment to leadership of any person, beginning with Moses (Joshua), the senators, judges, tribal leaders on down, could hold any office that did not meet the specific and strict requirements of virtue as directed by Yahweh. It must be stated that this “aristocracy” can only work with Yahweh at the head and all others in leadership roles must pass His test. Moses explains to the congregation what will happen to them when they refuse Yahweh’s protectorship. 

I have taken the liberty to embolden some of the words in order to help draw your attention to Moses’s words, given to him by Yahweh.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

“O you Israelites and fellow soldiers, who have been partners with me in this long and uneasy journey; since it is now the will of God, and the course of old age, at a hundred and twenty, requires it that I should depart out of this life; and since God has forbidden me to be a patron or an assistant to you in what remains to be done beyond Jordan; I thought it reasonable not to leave off my endeavors even now for your happiness, but to do my utmost to procure for you the eternal enjoyment of good things, and a memorial for myself, when you shall be in the fruition of great plenty and prosperity. Come, therefore, let me suggest to you by what means you may be happy, and may leave an eternal prosperous possession thereof to your children after you, and then let me thus go out of the world; and I cannot but deserve to be believed by you, both on account of the great things I have already done for you, and because, when souls are about to leave the body, they speak with the sincerest freedom. O children of Israel! there is but one source of happiness for all mankind, the favor of God for he alone is able to give good things to those that deserve them, and to deprive those of them that sin against him; towards whom, if you behave yourselves according to his will, and according to what I, who well understand his mind, do exhort you to, you will both be esteemed blessed, and will be admired by all men; and will never come into misfortunes, nor cease to be happy: you will then preserve the possession of the good things you already have, and will quickly obtain those that you are at present in want of, – only do you be obedient to those whom God would have you to follow. Nor do you prefer any other constitution of government before the laws now given you; neither do you disregard that way of Divine worship which you now have, nor change it for any other form: and if you do this, you will be the most courageous of all men, in undergoing the fatigues of war, and will not be easily conquered by any of your enemies; for while God is present with you to assist you, it is to be expected that you will be able to despise the opposition of all mankind; and great rewards of virtue are proposed for you, if you preserve that virtue through your whole lives. Virtue itself is indeed the principal and the first reward, and after that it bestows abundance of others; so that your exercise of virtue towards other men will make your own lives happy, and render you more glorious than foreigners can be, and procure you an undisputed reputation with posterity. These blessings you will be able to obtain, in case you hearken to and observe those laws which, by Divine revelation, I have ordained for you; that is, in case you withal meditate upon the wisdom that is in them. I am going from you myself, rejoicing in the good things you enjoy; and I recommend you to the wise conduct of your law, to the becoming order of your polity, and to the virtues of your commanders, who will take care of what is for your advantage. And that God, who has been till now your Leader, and by whose goodwill I have myself been useful to you, will not put a period now to his providence over you, but as long as you desire to have him your Protector in your pursuits after virtue, so long will you enjoy his care over you. Your high priest also Eleazar, as well as Joshua, with the senate, and chief of your tribes, will go before you, and suggest the best advices to you; by following which advices you will continue to be happy: to whom do you give ear without reluctance, as sensible that all such as know well how to be governed, will also know how to govern, if they be promoted to that authority themselves. And do not you esteem liberty to consist in opposing such directions as your governors think fit to give you for your practice, – as at present indeed you place your liberty in nothing else but abusing your benefactors; which error if you can avoid for the time to come, your affairs will be in a better condition than they have hitherto been. Nor do you ever indulge such a degree of passion in these matters, as you have oftentimes done when you have been very angry at me; for you know that I have been oftener in danger of death from you than from our enemies. What I now put you in mind of, is not done in order to reproach you; for I do not think it proper, now I am going out of the world, to bring this to your remembrance, in order to leave you offended at me, since, at the time when I underwent those hardships from you, I was not angry at you; but I do it in order to make you wiser hereafter, and to teach you that this will be for your security; I mean, that you never be injurious to those that preside over you, even when you are become rich, as you will be to a great degree when you have passed over Jordan, and are in possession of the land of Canaan. Since, when you shall have once proceeded so far by your wealth, as to a contempt and disregard of virtue, you will also forfeit the favor of God; and when you have made him your enemy, you will be beaten in war, and will have the land which you possess taken away again from you by your enemies, and this with great reproaches upon your conduct. You will be scattered over the whole world, and will, as slaves, entirely fill both sea and land; and when once you have had the experience of what I now say, you will repent, and remember the laws you have broken, when it is too late. Whence I would advise you, if you intend to preserve these laws, to leave none of your enemies alive when you have conquered them, but to look upon it as for your advantage to destroy them all, lest, if you permit them to live, you taste of their manners, and thereby corrupt your own proper institutions. I also do further exhort you, to overthrow their altars, and their groves, and whatsoever temples they have among them, and to burn all such, their nation, and their very memory with fire; for by this means alone the safety of your own happy constitution can be firmly secured to you. And in order to prevent your ignorance of virtue, and the degeneracy of your nature into vice, I have also ordained you laws, by Divine suggestion, and a form of government, which are so good, that if you regularly observe them, you will be esteemed of all men the most happy.”

Myths of the “Eastern Puma” Shall Deceive, Even The Elect

Once again it appears many are acting as though “we’re all gonna die,” due to actions by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The USFWS announced just the other day that a Final Rule had been published that would officially declare the “Eastern Puma” extinct. This action shouldn’t have come as any surprise as it has been in the works for years with the USFWS, by law, providing every opportunity for anyone to get involved in the process and offer comments, opinions, and yes, even an occasional scientific report about the effort.

I was reading from an Online newspaper out of Connecticut about “The Story, The Myth, That Never Dies.” This is, of course, about the ongoing belief that the Eastern Cougar is alive and well. Perpetuated by these illusions are the notions that people see them everywhere; they have proof. American people, with their bred-into-them perversions about animals, want to believe, at all costs, void of even sanity, that wild animals, such as the Eastern mountain lion, are living in their backyards. Maybe it’s a desire, an uncontrolled want to have a spiritual connection with something. Why do people act this way?

When I was a young boy growing up and forced to attend Church and Sunday School several times a week, I heard spoken many things about the Bible. Even at the age of 10, I would ask myself, in a way that only a 10-year-old could ask, “Why would anybody be so stupid to do something like that?”

Here’s an example of what I mean. Often I was subjected to the book of Matthew, Chapter 24, specifically verses 24 – 26. Here it is written where Yeshuah is telling his disciples of things that will happen in the Latter Days. He tells them that there will be false Christs and false prophets, some that will “show great signs and wonders.” He also says that people will tell you to go here and go there for at these places you will find those who do “great signs and wonders,” and that they will “deceive even the elect.” “Don’t go,” He tells them. Don’t be deceived.

And yes, at 10 I asked how could anybody be so stupid. I asked myself those same questions about many prophecies in the Bible. 56 years later, I understand. With an understanding of the animal perversion of Americans, and I suppose most Westerners in general, these people want so badly to believe that when someone tells them there are wild animals in the woods that do amazing things, they blindly and willingly follow. They may never actually see these creatures but they will believe and never give it up.

If Yeshuah told us even the elect will be deceived about false prophets and false messiahs, surely many will be deceived about wild animals and pets, that do amazing things. If the love and care people show their pets and wild animals could be exchanged for love and care of the fellow man, wouldn’t the world we live in be different? Imagine if they put the same effort into getting people to know and understand the real Creator.

With all this in mind, reading the article about the ongoing myths about mountain lions and their existence gives us new meaning.

Today’s Insanity: “Works of the Flesh Are Manifest”

*Editor’s Note* – I continually hear people voice their astonishment of what they are seeing in this country and around the world. It is often described as unbelievable, out of control, disgusting, scary and I regularly call it what it is – insanity. Why is this happening? Paul clearly tells us in the below passage from Galatians 5: 13-26. There is no other explanation.

Galations 5

13 For brethren, ye have been called unto liberty: only use not your liberty as an occasion unto the flesh, but by love serve one another.

14 For all the Law is fulfilled in one word, which is this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.

15 If ye bite and devour one another, take heed lest ye be consumed one of another.

16 Then I say, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary one to another, so that ye cannot do the same things that ye would.

18 And if ye be led by the Spirit, ye are not under the Law.

19 Moreover the works of the flesh are manifest, which are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, wantonness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, debate, emulations, wrath, contentions, seditions, heresies,

21 Envy, murders, drunkenness, gluttony, and such like, whereof I tell you before, as I also have told you before, that they which do such things, shall not inherit the kingdom of God. [emboldening added]

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperancy: against such there is no law.

24 For they that are Christ’s, have crucified the flesh with the affections and the lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vainglory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Blind Stubbornness of the Israelites

We have on occasion seen someone present Scripture stating that if a nation repent and turn from their evil ways Yehwah will heal that nation. This may be the will of Yehwah but there is more to the story that most don’t take the time to explain.

It was under the rule of King Zedekiah when the children of Israel went into bondage of Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon. Prior to that time, Jeremiah, who was the mouthpiece of Yehwah, repeatedly kept telling the leaders and the people that if they did not mend their ways and return to the worship of their True Lord and away from idol worship and living lives of wickedness, they and their cities would be destroyed and sent into bondage under the rule of Nebuchadnezzar. They refused to listen to Jeremiah and in fact many sought to have Jeremiah killed.

In Jeremiah 18: 6-11, we read of the words given to Jeremiah by Yehwah. Often we hear of the promise that if we repent and follow Yehwah, all will be well. However, sometimes we fall short of telling the whole story of what will happen if we remain in our wickedness.

Yehwah places kings and presidents over nations for His purpose to carry out His plans not ours. As His words say below, He will do whatever he wishes of any nation, even to destroy it. But if that nation lives in wickedness and refuses to do the will of Yehwah, the risk is always there that Yehwah will “pluck it up, and to root it out, and to destroy it.”

Part of the lives of the wicked involves corrupt governments, causing harm needlessly against others as well as their own people. It also means the worship of false gods and idols and Pagan worship, hiding behind false beliefs, invoking the name of “god” falsely with corrupt intentions.

The more this country insists to call itself an “exceptional” nation, the greater the risk that it shall fall. There is little exceptionalism to be found in the wickedness of a corrupt government and a perverse people.

O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter, saith the Lord? behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in mine hand, O house of Israel.

I will speak suddenly against a nation, or against a kingdom to pluck it up, and to root it out, and to destroy it.

But if this nation against whom I have pronounced turn from their wickedness, I will repent of the plague that I thought to bring upon them.

And I will speak suddenly concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom to build it and to plant it.

10 But if it do evil in my sight, and hear not my voice, I will repent of the good that I thought to do for them.

11 Speak thou now therefore unto the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I prepare a plague for you, and purpose a thing against you: return you therefore every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your works good.
