Are All Sins The Same in God’s Eyes?

Demon Possession Is Alive And Well On Planet Earth!

For those who believe demon possession disappeared from the earth during the time of Jesus Christ and His apostles’ ministries, well, they are going to be in for a rude awakening.  Demon possession is NOT a medieval concept, nor has it disappeared from the earth.  Folks, the opposite is true.  It’s getting worse!  God reveals to us in the 13th chapter of Zechariah just when demon possession will end – AT CHRIST’S RETURN!  And Revelation 12:9 warns us that it is going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

The body of a 6-year-old boy was found in Yaquina Bay in Newport, Ore., on Monday night after a woman called police and allegedly said she had thrown him off a bridge.

The woman, who has not been named but is said to be the child’s mother, reportedly called 911 and said she heard voices telling her to throw the boy off the Yaquina Bay Bridge, according to News Lincoln County.  This horror occurred one November night in 2014.

I don’t think Jillian McCabe was lying when she said she heard voices telling her telling her to kill her son.  I believe she actually DID hear such voices, and I believe they were demonic spirits speaking to her mind.

On May 20, 1998, 15 year old Kip Kinkel was told by his father that he would be sent to military school if he did not change his behavior. According to Kinkel’s taped confession, at about 3:00 p.m., his father was seated at the kitchen counter drinking coffee. Kinkel retrieved his .22 rifle from his bedroom and ammunition from his parents’ bedroom. He then went to the kitchen and shot his father once in the back of the head, then dragged his body into the bathroom and covered it with a sheet. Kinkel further stated that his mother arrived home at about 6:30 p.m., and that he met her in the garage, told her he loved her, then shot her twice in the back of the head, three times in the face, and once in the heart. He then dragged her body across the floor and covered it with a sheet.

In a note Kinkel left on a coffee table in the living room, he described his motive for killing his parents thus: “I just got two felonies on my record. My parents can’t take that! It would destroy them. The embarrassment would be too much for them. They couldn’t live with themselves.” But as the note continues, he attempts to describe his mental state: “My head just doesn’t work right. God damn these VOICES inside my head. … I have to kill people. I don’t know why. … I have no other choice.”

On May 21, the morning after he murdered his parents, Kinkel drove his mother’s Ford Explorer to the high school. He wore a trench coat to hide the five weapons he carried: two hunting knives, a 9x19mm Glock 19 pistol, a Ruger .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle, and a MK II .22-caliber Ruger pistol. He was carrying 1,127 rounds of ammunition.

He parked on North 61st Street, two blocks from the school, then jogged to the campus, entered the patio area and fired two shots, one fatally wounding Ben Walker and the other wounding Ryan Atteberry. Kinkel went to the cafeteria and, walking across it, fired the remaining 48 rounds from his rifle, wounding 24 students and fatally wounding 17-year-old Mikael Nickolauson. Kinkel fired a total of 50 rounds, hitting with 37 of those, and killing two.

When Kinkel’s rifle ran out of ammunition and he began to reload, wounded student Jacob Ryker tackled him, assisted by several other students. Kinkel drew the Glock from his belt and fired one shot before he was disarmed, injuring Ryker again as well as another student. He yelled at the students “Just kill me!” The students restrained Kinkel until the police arrived and arrested him A total of seven students were involved in subduing and disarming Kinkel.In custody, Kinkel retrieved a knife that was secured on his leg and attacked a police officer, begging to be fatally shot.

I believe there is a very good chance Kip Kinkel was telling the absolute truth about the voices he heard telling him to kill and that he had no choice.  He couldn’t stop himself from doing what he did.  And, again, I believe these voices to be of demonic origin!

You are probably aware by now that the ISIS terrorists in Syria killed the third hostage.  (Remember, they beheaded the two Japanese prisoners).  That’s not how they killed the third one, the captured Jordanian fighter pilot.  They stood him up in a narrow steel cage and set him on fire, burning him alive.  They would love to do that with every Christian, everyone, in fact, who is not a fervent Muslim.  As I said before, buckle your seatbelts (by TOTAL, continuous surrender to Jesus Christ) because we are in for a bumpy ride.

.
America, prepare to meet thy God for He is going to use the Islamic hordes to judge us just as He used the Assyrians and Babylonians to judge His people in ancient times.  (Read Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel if you doubt this is how God judges His own nation and people).  I’m still waiting for that “other shoe” to drop.  Osama bin Laden’s death must yet be fully avenged.  Don’t forget that the Islamic zealots know full well that it was Americans who brutally killed bin Laden and then tossed his corpse in the ocean.  There are not just a handful of powerless Muslims who desire earnestly to avenge bin Laden.  There are thousands, many residing right now in this country, who have sworn and avowed that they will do so.  Their revered leader took down the Twin Trade Towers and struck the Pentagon a terrific blow.  I assure you, they are thinking, “America, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
.
Don’t grow complacent thinking, “Happy days are here again.”  The burning alive of one man cannot whet their thirst for blood against those who dare oppose them.  Demons are super-intelligent spirit beings who understand human nature very, very well.  And when they enter into an unconverted wicked human being who himself, or herself, is possessed of higher than average intelligence, well, you got a problem.
.
Am I an alarmist?  You bet I am.  I am one who knows scripture intimately well, who understands prophecy intimately well and who assures you, we are in for one hell of a ride.    “In ME, ye shall have peace,” says our Lord.  THAT is our only hope in this unique time of human history.  Islam is NOT going to be stopped.  Take that to the bank.  Satan wants believers to see Roman Catholicism as the bogey man in the end times.  The real beast is not false Christianity.  The real beast is Islam.  We had better stop listening to the warnings of deceived men and read the Word of God – ALL OF IT – and believe God.  He let us know long, long ago that THIS is the spirit of anti-Christ, whoever denies the Father AND THE SON, and Islam has been doing that for centuries.  Turn to I John, chapter 2, verse 22 in your Bible.  Mark that verse, highlight it, color it in, turn down the corner of the page where you find it.  Memorize it.  And start looking in the right direction for the anti-Christ.

Does God Exaggerate?

Another Retiring Pope?

If you have been following the latest news about Pope Francis, then you know that he has said that he may remain pope for only a few more years, maybe even two or three, before following the lead of Pope Benedict and retiring, setting a new papal tradition.

I, personally, believe he is doing this in order to save face should another Islamic fatwa be initiated demanding that this pope, too, be killed for disrespecting the prophet Mohammed or Islam.  Did you not know that is WHY Pope Benedict retired so suddenly ostensibly because of his failing health and advanced age?  Here follows the speech that prompted an Islamic fatwa to be issued against Pope Benedict, a speech given by him while still a cardinal, delivered at the University of Regensburg, Tuesday, 12 September, 2006.

APOSTOLIC JOURNEY OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI
TO MÜNCHEN, ALTÖTTING AND REGENSBURG

Faith, Reason and the University
Memories and Reflections

Your Eminences, Your Magnificences, Your Excellencies,
Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is a moving experience for me to be back again in the university and to be able once again to give a lecture at this podium.I was reminded of all this recently, when I read the edition by Professor Theodore Khoury (Münster) of part of the dialogue carried on – perhaps in 1391 in the winter barracks near Ankara – by the erudite Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus and an educated Persian on the subject of Christianity and Islam, and the truth of both.[1] It was presumably the emperor himself who set down this dialogue, during the siege of Constantinople between 1394 and 1402; and this would explain why his arguments are given in greater detail than those of his Persian interlocutor.[2] The dialogue ranges widely over the structures of faith contained in the Bible and in the Qur’an, and deals especially with the image of God and of man, while necessarily returning repeatedly to the relationship between – as they were called – three “Laws” or “rules of life”: the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Qur’an. It is not my intention to discuss this question in the present lecture; here I would like to discuss only one point – itself rather marginal to the dialogue as a whole – which, in the context of the issue of “faith and reason”, I found interesting and which can serve as the starting-point for my reflections on this issue.

In the seventh conversation (διάλεξις – controversy) edited by Professor Khoury, the emperor touches on the theme of the holy war. The emperor must have known that surah 2, 256 reads: “There is no compulsion in religion”. According to some of the experts, this is probably one of the suras of the early period, when Mohammed was still powerless and under threat. But naturally the emperor also knew the instructions, developed later and recorded in the Qur’an, concerning holy war. Without descending to details, such as the difference in treatment accorded to those who have the “Book” and the “infidels”, he addresses his interlocutor with a startling brusqueness, a brusqueness that we find unacceptable, on the central question about the relationship between religion and violence in general, saying: “Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”[3] The emperor, after having expressed himself so forcefully, goes on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul. “God”, he says, “is not pleased by blood – and not acting reasonably (σὺν λόγω) is contrary to God’s nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats… To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death…”.

You are going to find the hierarchy of Roman Catholicism bowing more and more before Islam’s pressure around the globe.  According to Revelation, these two world-encompassing religions will eventually make a truce with one another and join together in fulfillment of the beast and false prophet prophecies in those scriptures.  If Pope Francis does retire, you can believe it will be simultaneous with Islamic demands that he do so or die due to something he will say that will be interpreted as blasphemy against the prophet Mohammed, the Koran, or Islam.

Ordination Councils

A Babylonian King Gives Warning

1)  “This matter is by the decree of the (heavenly) watchers, and the demand by the word of the holy ones, to the intent that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom (governments) of men, and gives it (the rule over earthly nations) to whomsoever He will, and sets up over it (any human government) the basest of men (yes, even a Hitler, a Mussolini, a Stalin, or a Kim Jong Un).”  Daniel 4:17.
2)   “Seven times (years) shall pass over thee, till thou (King Nebuchadnezzar) know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives (such rule) to whomsoever He will (and God can surprise men as to whom He will allow to gain rule and control).”  Daniel 4:25.  Read the entirety of Daniel, Chapter 4.  For seven years Nebuchadnezzar was devoid of reason, utterly insane until God restored his reason and his throne.
3)  “Seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will.”  Daniel 4: 32.
4) “I (Nebuchadnezzar) blessed the Most High, and I praised and honored Him that lives for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation, and all the inhabitants of the earth (America included) are reputed as nothing (when comparing power and ability to act), and He does according to His will in the army of heaven (as well as the armies of earth), and among the inhabitants of the earth (regardless of where they be citizens), and NONE can stay His hand (stop or prevent Him), or say unto Him, ‘What are you doing?'”  Daniel 4:34-35.
“Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, AND HIS WAYS JUDGMENT, and those that walk in pride (crowing, “We have the greatest military war machine this planet has ever seen”) He is able to abase (to bring low, utterly nullifying their military might and capability).”  Daniel 4:37.
Men devoid of true spiritual insight believe superior military strength and might will guarantee a nation’s survival in any military engagement or conflict.  After all, if we have literally hundreds of nuclear bombs and warheads strategically placed around the globe, many carried in the bomb bays of our warplanes ever in the air, twenty-four seven, surely we do not need to fear an enemy that has only a few such nuclear devices, do we?  But what if that enemy – like Japan and Pearl Harbor – stealthily strikes first, obliterating such cities as Washington, D.C., New York City, and a major SAC (Strategic Air Command) base.  What then?
Reader, we are living in extremely dangerous times – and the danger increases with each passing hour.  If I were you, I would take an ancient king’s advice and praise and honor Him who lives forever.  Think about it.

Battle of the Little Big Horn

No, I am not speaking of General George Armstrong Custer’s “last stand” in Montana in 1876.  I am speaking of Christianity’s last stand against the “little horn” spoken of in Daniel Chapter 7.  We were duly warned 2500 years ago that this “little horn,” a combined religious and political power would desire to change “laws” (verse 25).  Notice, the term is plural.  Many think this text refers to Catholicism’s changing the sabbath law of God to Sunday – one law.  It is not speaking of such, but of Islam’s desire to change ALL laws everywhere to conform to Sharia Law – the rule of Koranic law!  Many fail to see that the text does not say this power seeks to change “time,” – singular, but “times,” – plural.  The “times” this Islamic leader will attempt to change are the seven “times” or years that scripture prophecy says he will rule and reign over the whole earth.  It will be his intention to rule as long as he lives.

If believers could only set aside, forget, turn away from that which they have been spoon fed by well intentioned, but misguided, Bible teachers and instructors, they would see that the threat to Christianity, and every other religion, in the end time is NOT Roman Catholicism, but Islam.

Satan’s deceptive powers are staggering and formidable.  If we do not submit ourselves totally to the LORDship of Jesus Christ and allow the Word of God then to speak to our minds and hearts, we WILL be deceived in not one or more areas, but MANY areas.  Satan’s intelligence is super human!  Never forget that.  If one could pit the intelligence of an Albert Einstein against that of Satan, it would be similar to pitting the intelligence of a 3-day old infant against Einstein.

When God created Lucifer, who became Satan, God’s adversary following his rebellion against God and His rule, God’s Word says, “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Thou (Lucifer) sealest up the sum, FULL OF WISDOM, and perfect in beauty…Thou wast PERFECT in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee” (See Ezekiel 28:12, 15).  God always does His best.  And when He imparted intelligence and wisdom to Lucifer, he did His best.  He stood back, as it were, and said, “That’s the best I can do!  That is the utmost intelligence I can create and give to another being other than myself!”  Nowhere does any scripture even imply that when Lucifer rebelled he lost his intelligence.  He did NOT!  It was merely corrupted, now used against God and His will.  And THAT’S the being we are up against on planet earth.  Without God’s guidance and Holy Spirit we have no win against Satan.  He could beat a thousand Einsteins at a game of chess in a millisecond.  And he will beat you at your game of life every day, every time from here to eternity.  Not only America, but the world had better wake up to the era in which this present generation now lives.  We are back in Bible times, folks, the times spoken of in Daniel and Revelation.  God help you to understand is my prayer and hope.

You Shall Know The Truth

Many, perhaps most, Seventh Day Adventists view Ellen G. White’s book “The Great Controversy” in about the same light as Mormons view the Book of Mormon.  I will be the first to say the Book of Mormon is wholly a book of myths and falsehoods, whereas Ellen G. White’s writings contain much beautiful, as well as beautifully worded truth.  Herbert W. Armstrong’s various books and pamphlets, as well as those of his son Garner Ted, contain much enlightenment – but, likewise, some profound error.
We are living in an era that has been inundated with Bible study literature.  Everybody and their third cousin has written a book, a pamphlet, a tract, produced a video, made a teaching tape, etc.  Some few are excellent wordsmiths, having the ability to write super-effectively.  Some are spell-binding orators and speakers.  I would urge anyone seeking the unvarnished, plain truth of what the Bible says to READ THE BIBLE.  Let God speak to you through His Son, His prophets and apostles.  Ask God to give you enlightenment from their writings primarily.
It is only when one has a very good foundational knowledge of the scriptures that they can quickly discern when error is being presented.
And I mean ALL the scriptures, both Hebrew and Greek scriptures, commonly called the Old and New Testaments.  I have often been perplexed by those who call themselves New Testament Christians, saying they don’t get their doctrine from the Hebrew scriptures.  Have they never considered Paul’s statement to Timothy that “ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, AND IS PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”? (See 2 Timothy 3:16).  And, in verse 15 of that text, Paul speaks of how this grown man Timothy had known the holy scriptures of which he speaks from the time he was a child!  The ONLY scriptures this adult minister could possibly have known many years before were the Hebrew scriptures.  It is the Old Testament to which Paul refers when he says, “ALL scripture is profitable for doctrine!”
The apostle Peter agrees with Paul when he writes: “For the prophecy came not IN OLD TIME (many years previously) by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (See 2 Peter 1:21).  And to whom did these prophets write: “The prophets…prophesied of the grace that should come UNTO YOU
(believers of the Christian era), searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow, unto whom it was revealed that not unto themselves (their own time and generation), but UNTO US THEY DID MINISTER the things which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven, which things the angels desire to look into” (See I Peter 1:10-12).
Notice that Peter says it was the Spirit of Christ in these prophets prompting them to say and write what they did.  Therefore, when you read in these prophets “Thus saith the Lord” you can complete that thought by reading, “Thus saith the Lord Jesus Christ!”  Even if someone were to argue that the “Lord” there means the Father, still the Father and the Son are ever in total harmony with one another, always and ever saying the same thing.
Those who neglect studying diligently the Hebrew scriptures cut themselves off from vast oceans of divine truth and from even really understanding the true doctrines of God’s true church!

The Dead Snake Handler

Thomas Jefferson’s Quran

Subject: Fw: What Thomas Jefferson learned from the Muslim book of jihad



 


By Ted Sampley
U.S. Veteran Dispatch
January 2007

Democrat Keith Ellison is now officially the first Muslim United States congressman. True to his pledge, he placed his hand on the Quran, the Muslim book of jihad and pledged his allegiance to the United States during his ceremonial swearing-in.

Capitol Hill staff said Ellison’s swearing-in photo opportunity drew more media than they had ever seen in the history of the U.S. House. Ellison represents the 5th Congressional District of Minnesota.

The Quran Ellison used was no ordinary book. It once belonged to Thomas Jefferson, third president of the United States and one of America’s founding fathers. Ellison borrowed it from the Rare Book Section of the Library of Congress. It was one of the 6,500 Jefferson books archived in the library.

Ellison, who was born in Detroit and converted to Islam while in college, said he chose to use Jefferson’s Quran because it showed that “a visionary like Jefferson” believed that wisdom could be gleaned from many sources.

There is no doubt Ellison was right about Jefferson believing wisdom could be “gleaned” from the Muslim Quran. At the time Jefferson owned the book, he needed to know everything possible about Muslims because he was about to advocate war against the Islamic “Barbary” states of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Tripoli.

Ellison’s use of Jefferson’s Quran as a prop illuminates a subject once well-known in the history of the United States, but, which today, is mostly forgotten – the Muslim pirate slavers who over many centuries enslaved millions of Africans and tens of thousands of Christian Europeans and Americans in the Islamic “Barbary” states.

Over the course of 10 centuries, Muslim pirates cruised the African and Mediterranean coastline, pillaging villages and seizing slaves.

The taking of slaves in pre-dawn raids on unsuspecting coastal villages had a high casualty rate. It was typical of Muslim raiders to kill off as many of the “non-Muslim” older men and women as possible so the preferred “booty” of only young women and children could be collected.

Young non-Muslim women were targeted because of their value as concubines in Islamic markets. Islamic law provides for the sexual interests of Muslim men by allowing them to take as many as four wives at one time and to have as many concubines as their fortunes allow.

Boys, as young as 9 or 10 years old, were often mutilated to create eunuchs who would bring higher prices in the slave markets of the Middle East. Muslim slave traders created “eunuch stations” along major African slave routes so the necessary surgery could be performed. It was estimated that only a small number of the boys subjected to the mutilation survived after the surgery.

When American colonists rebelled against British rule in 1776, American merchant ships lost Royal Navy protection. With no American Navy for protection, American ships were attacked and their Christian crews enslaved by Muslim pirates operating under the control of the “Dey of Algiers”–an Islamist warlord ruling Algeria.

Because American commerce in the Mediterranean was being destroyed by the pirates, the Continental Congress agreed in 1784 to negotiate treaties with the four Barbary States. Congress appointed a special commission consisting of John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin, to oversee the negotiations.

Lacking the ability to protect its merchant ships in the Mediterranean, the new America government tried to appease the Muslim slavers by agreeing to pay tribute and ransoms in order to retrieve seized American ships and buy the freedom of enslaved sailors.

Adams argued in favor of paying tribute as the cheapest way to get American commerce in the Mediterranean moving again. Jefferson was opposed. He believed there would be no end to the demands for tribute and wanted matters settled “through the medium of war.” He proposed a league of trading nations to force an end to Muslim piracy.

In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the “Dey of Algiers” ambassador to Britain.

The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote to appease.

During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey’s ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

In a later meeting with the American Congress, the two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

For the following 15 years, the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to 20 percent of United States government annual revenues in 1800.

Not long after Jefferson’s inauguration as president in 1801, he dispatched a group of frigates to defend American interests in the Mediterranean, and informed Congress.

Declaring that America was going to spend “millions for defense but not one cent for tribute,” Jefferson pressed the issue by deploying American Marines and many of America’s best warships to the Muslim Barbary Coast.

The USS Constitution, USS Constellation, USS Philadelphia, USS Chesapeake, USS Argus, USS Syren and USS Intrepid all saw action.

In 1805, American Marines marched across the dessert from Egypt into Tripolitania, forcing the surrender of Tripoli and the freeing of all American slaves.

During the Jefferson administration, the Muslim Barbary States, crumbling as a result of intense American naval bombardment and on shore raids by Marines, finally officially agreed to abandon slavery and piracy.

Jefferson’s victory over the Muslims lives on today in the Marine Hymn, with the line, “From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, we will fight our country’s battles on the land as on the sea.”

It wasn’t until 1815 that the problem was fully settled by the total defeat of all the Muslim slave trading pirates.

Jefferson had been right. The “medium of war” was the only way to put and end to the Muslim problem. Mr. Ellison was right about Jefferson. He was a “visionary” wise enough to read and learn about the enemy from their own Muslim book of jihad.”
