After the Apple (part 1)

In the beginning was peace. From peace came rebellion, and from rebellion came the world we know today. Once sin entered into the equation, the rules did change from what they once were, and humanity's understanding, which flowed in the beginning from a harmonious relationship with God, immediately dimmed to the standard of blindness we all are born with. The stakes for this new playing field were set by God to the serpent, to the woman and to the man (Genesis 3). To know how we will be judged in the end, we should be well familiar with what we were told in the beginning.

In cursing the serpent, God revealed a key to the struggle of a fallen world:
Genesis 3:15
"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall crush your head, and you shall strike his heel."
This verse is commonly seen by Christians to be a prophecy of the messiah, who will conquer the devil. And it is, but not entirely. This is the first verse to tell us that the devil can/will have children. And his children will always be at war with the children of humanity. There will be more than one intelligent species on the planet. Considering how foreign that idea is to most of us, we should surmise that the children of the serpent, if they do exist, disguise themselves among us. They must thrive in deception, in shadows, in illusion and manipulation as their father does. The same way that Secret Societies throughout history have thrived.

Jesus described this hidden reality to us in depth, by his parable of the wheat and the weeds. He was very forthcoming when it came to exposing the treachery of the devil. But considering how ignorant we remain, despite his candid exposure, it seems that our minds are clouded from this truth, and we need the answer to be plain in order to accept it when we encounter it. The set up is clear, yet overlooked by most. Keeping this in context, If we go a bit further in Genesis, we find a genealogy which goes from Adam to Noah, who was saved from the flood by God. It is certainly no coincidence that at the very point that we first meet Noah, we are immediately introduced to another player in this dynamic drama of life and sin:

Genesis 6:1-4:
"When man began to multiply on the face of the land and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose. Then the Lord said, "My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years." The Nephilim (or Titans, or Giants) were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown"
This passage tells us that angels married human women, and produced halfbreed giants as offspring. This crossbreeding of species is established by Moses, Jude, Jesus and others to be a sin before God, meaning that the daddy angels are fallen from obedience to God, and are thereby demons. This means that the earth was and is inhabited not just by the descendants of Adam, but also by these hybrid demigods, commanded by Lucifer, to rule, subdue, corrupt and destroy mankind. And this is far from the only passage that refers to these beings, and this new dynamic to intelligent life as we know it on earth. But those come afterwards. For now, let's stay in the time-line, and see what kind of records there are of life before the flood.

Enoch, who was the seventh descendant from Adam, and great-grandfather of Noah, wrote a book which, although not official scripture, goes into much greater detail about who these Nephilim are. He tells of how these creatures gave great technology to mankind, in exchange for mankind's obedience and worship. essentially betraying the secrets of God, as detailed in Romans 1:20-25 In this day and age of walmart and consumerism we should bear in mind that the comforts of civilization are a circumvention of God's curse to Adam (Gen 3:17-19), and therefore sinful in nature. Evil gives birth only to more evil. Imagine the earth as a garden, and evil as an out of control weed, that would be the state of our world today, as well as the state of the world in Noah's days:
Gen 6:5-6,8
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every
imagination of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented
the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his
heart. And the Lord said I will destroy man...But Noah found grace in the
eyes of the Lord."
There was a direct, demonic influence in the earth because of the Nephilim, as told in depth by Enoch. Man had been enticed to choose self over God and to "eat, drink, and marry!" which refers to the devil's plan to eradicate the bloodline of the messiah by crossbreeding with all pureblooded decendants of Eve that aren't put to death. Because of this, God decided to flood the earth. He chose to save Noah and his family because Noah was "perfect in his generations" i.e. a pure human decendant of Eve, and therefore carried the bloodline that would lead to the Messiah, Jesus. The story of Eve's bloodline will continue with Abraham. But let us continue our study, if possible, on the world wicked enough to cause God to destroy it with a broken heart.

Greek mythology gives us an account of our introduction to civilization, written in the play "Prometheus Bound" which tells of how the secret of fire, and other technologies were brought from the realm of the gods to mankind. Prometheus has been described thusly;

"From love of mortals he roused their reason; he taught them to make dwellings, showed them the stars, the use of number and writing--mother of the Muses. He tamed horses and built ships, taught the virtues of healing potions, the various modes of divination, and how to turn to account things dug out of the earth. He it was who taught mortals all they know."

So what did these Nephilim actually do? It seems that they gave mankind the foundational stones, blueprints and supplies for civilization as we know it. We see the evidence of their presence in the astounding technology that has emerged in the past 150 years or so (as verified by Daniel 2:43).

However, many world myths are telling us that technology was first given to man long ago. Which coincides with the Genesis account of Babel, as well as Sumerian texts. Also consider the story of Atlantis, which describes an advanced civilization that was swallowed up by the sea. Compare that fable to the flood account in Genesis. Is this beginning to add up?

We have always been taught that world mythology is the product of overactive imaginations, a commonality that all cultures possess. Christians are taught to view fables and legends from other cultures as pure lies from the mouth of the devil, meant to lead people away from Jesus. Fear and foolishness have a way of clouding peoples judgment. Not to mention that modern science has trained us to believe in a mechanistic world free of anything fantastic. If you think about it, the same justification that gives common Christians disdain for believing in giants or titans or dragons (all mentioned in the Bible) is what gives atheists disdain for believing in God.
Proverbs 14:12
"There is a way that seems right to man, but in the end it leads to death."
The sedating influence of this modern world should be considered dangerous and deceptive. America is insulated from the suffering of the world, and because of that our sense of empathy is all but gone. We are being deceived and seduced into wickedness, thinking all the time how perfectly normal our behavior is. And that is the crux of the matter.

Human beings seem to have a natural need to justify, or explain the world around us. We have a need for that sense of normalcy. But it is a lie, a dark, filtered view of the reality we are immersed in. It is the darkness of unbelief. How many times did Jesus address his followers saying, "Oh ye of little faith!" God knows that's just a part of our nature. So does the devil. Let us take our natural presumptions about reality and put them aside as we explore what scriptures have always said.
Isaiah 55:8-9

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares
the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than
your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
1 Corinthians 1:25
"For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God
is stronger than man's strength."

Luke 17:26

"As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the
Son of Man,"

There is a great mystery waiting to be unraveled in world history, as well as in the Bible. I believe that we are living in the day when the light of truth will expose what has been hidden in darkness throughout the ages. What we see by the increase of that light will be foreign to us at first. But it's peculiar nature doesn't discount it's truth in any way. I do not intend to produce a cunningly devised fable here, but rather to cut away the presumptions and explanations held by generations to rationalize this world in the past. If what I say is true, it can be verified by scripture and history. If it isn't, that much should be easy to determine. I (and many others out there) venture out on a limb, and risk sounding mad by this exploration, but if you can bear with me, you will be astonished by what history itself has to say.

Part of Iron, Part Of Clay. (part 2)

In my last post , I hypothesized that an extra-human species of demonic origin, unearthly power and malicious intent has been coexisting (obviously in secret) with mankind since shortly after the fall of Adam and Eve. Which is very similar to the plot of John Carpenter's "They Live". I assure you that I would be the first to commit myself to a mental institution for saying it, if that outlandish "theory" wasn't clearly stated in Genesis 3:15, 6:1-4.

Now, of course we all know that just because something is in the Bible, doesn't mean that it isn't taken out of context. Partial truths are the best means to make lies more digestible. It was the devil's tactic against Christ when he tempted him in the wilderness, after all. And of course twisting scripture is the reason for the sickly state of our modern church. All are as sheep without a shepherd, because honesty is gone, and "spin" is definitely in.

Well I've declared myself to be an enemy of the devil, and I will never resort to using his tactics in order to further a fight against him. I'm not trying to scare anyone, but this is no joke. I know just how crazy what I'm saying about the "Nephilim" sounds, and if I didn't believe it were true, I would definitely not be saying these things. And I also must confess that even though I've come to believe that they do exist, it's still difficult to imagine. That being said, if their existence is a constantly kept secret from the majority of men (as it clearly must be), God would have exposed their shadowy ways quite often throughout scripture. It just so happens that he does. (which is why I'm covering this subject in installments, rather than one nice, neat package)

These days, the concept of an elite class, set apart from the masses, possessing "hidden knowledge", and meant to be rulers is not foreign. The symbol of this concept is on the back of our $1 bill, after all. The History Channel constantly has some show or another about the Freemasons, or the Illuminati, or "secret societies". And there is also an active grassroots campaign out there to expose the New World Order agenda, which is being set in motion by groups like the Bilderbergs, Skull & Bones, and the Bohemian Grove. It's no secret, and it's no fantasy.

The "enmity" placed between the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman is fundamentally a battle between the devil and Christ. But it is also a war that spans the time between the fall and the birth of Christ, which has carried over since his resurrection against humanity at large and the church specifically. That relationship is abundantly obvious throughout the story of the Israelites. Today we are going to focus on a prophecy which spans a good portion of the war between men and Nephilim. It came in the form of a dream to the king of Babylon, and Daniel was given it, and it's meaning through a vision from God.
Daniel 2:31-45
“You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
“This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory; and wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold—the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.”

Long as that passage may seem, it just about sums up the most recent 2/3rds of modern history. It is the image of the spirit of world empire. Though it is made up of different kingdoms, spanning over thousands of years, these kingdoms are different parts of one body. It is the devil's counterfeit of the body of Christ. But just as Christ is the head of his body, so is the Antichrist the little toe of this body.

There is so much packed into that passage from Daniel, that even those who are familiar with it don't think to ask what verse 43 is saying.
"As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay."

That verse was planted for us. As a key, it unlocks a mystery in this prophecy. Man as a species is represented by earth, or clay, and some sort of inhumanity is represented by the metallic elements. This passage, and others like it, is God's way of taking the shroud of secrecy right off the devil's plans. The significance of it can be found on the back of our dollar bills. Why is the capstone with the eye separated from the pyramid? It is because they do not adhere to one another, because the two are different. However this verse, like the others referring to the Nephilim, is simply hiding in plain sight. Why?

...the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
So if this is secret, and hidden, they how do I know? Am I just that darned smart? Did I formulate this theory on my own? Far from it. I have read and researched and pondered and prayed in order to come to an understanding of the Nephilim. But of course, everything that I have read has come from the hard work of many others, running to and fro and increasing knowledge (thank you internet). The reason this strange truth is now coming out is because the day of the Lord is at hand, and tricks of the devil and the nature of the beast will be revealed before that day comes.

Daniel 12:4

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.”
2 Thess 2:7-9
For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders.
1 Cor 2:10-12
But God has revealed these truths to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.

The spirit of the world is defined by war, conquest and Empire. The signature of that spirit is written throughout history. Suffering unimaginable has occurred at the wake of every imperial rise, and yet humanity has never seemed to learn a lesson from it. Remember World War 1? It was officially called "the war to end all wars". It didn't work. In fact, things are worse now than they have ever been, because we are more dangerous to each other now than we have ever been. And "mutually assured destruction" means nothing to 'lil Bush (the little horn), who came to office seven years ago knowing pathetically little about foreign policy and yet seems to be as talented at stirring up the hornets nest and spreading the fire of corporatized war as he was in running his own companies into the ground. Sin leads to death, always. There is no distinction. No matter what riches may come before death. Even though George W Bush does not have the heart to turn from his sinful ways, or the ability to even acknowledge that he is sinning, he does have the guts to take the whole world down with him to meet death. And America, as the strongest nation in the world, indeed the only modern "Empire", is the deadliest tool to have ever put in the hands of a psychopath like Bush.
Jesus, speaking of his impostor, said:

"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly."
This will get worse before it gets better. The last empire is now rising, has taken form and is an empire in all but official title. But the rock uncut by human hands is coming to smash that final empire to pieces, and to defeat the spirit of empire forever. Let us pray that we persevere through the trials and storms of this present night so that we might see the dawn of the glorious day to come, in Christ.

A Matter of Life and Death (part 3)

The first post of this series explored the dynamic of our shared human struggle, and what it means for us to be living in this fallen creation. According to Genesis, an often overlooked enemy of humanity called the Nephilim rose up in the days between the fall of man and the flood of Noah, and also after that. Part two explored the reemergence of these ancient beings, who were gods in the legends of old, as well as gods in their own minds. Daniel speaks clearly of these creatures trying to blend with humanity in the reign of the final worldly empire. Light was shed on the rituals and practices of the modern "Illuminati" or secret societies of the ruling class. The focus of this segment is the nature of the enmity which God promised would exist between the "seed of the serpent" and the "seed of the woman". We find that enmity of course in Noah's day, by the corruption of all of humanity. The abundant evil of men's hearts is seen by God, and the violence of this wickedness grows to a tremendous crescendo. However, It wasn't the Nephilim who killed almost every living person at the time, it was God. So if the Nephilim were and are at enmity with humanity, and God is our rock, our protection and deliverance, you have to wonder what was happening in Noah's day, and how God's actions could have delivered humanity. Because in understanding that, you can understand what is happening in our lifetimes. The answer, as I see it, is simple: There has always been more at stake than just our mortal lives.

We will follow the seed of the woman from Noah to Abraham and beyond into Christ in future posts, but first I think we need to define the type of war that's being waged against us, and our only hope for true survival. Plenty of people go on this strange journey between birth and death without officially recognizing the existence of a personal spirit. They could be demonstrably wicked, or they could live by the guidance of their conscience, trying to be "good", and stumbling inevitably on that path of basic decency from time to time. Plenty of others live their lives with utmost certainty of the presence of that spirit and some of them also live right, while others live wrong. But I tell you, we are now living in "the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; who will render unto every man according to his deeds" (Romans 2:5-6) I testify by my personal experiences that we all do, in fact, have spirits, and our spirits are constantly swayed and influenced by various forces. Historically it seems that we are more prone to side with darkness rather than with light. And unfortunately, those born blind don't know the light they can't see. But though we are all born blind, God has given us a way to see, and to come to the light.

In a way, we are like amphibians, both spirit and flesh. The flesh of man is dead without it's spirit, however, the human body can live for some time with a darkened spirit that is unaware of it's own reality. Make no mistake, death is in the darkness, and life is in the light. The Nephilim, on the other hand, were fathered by angels to human mothers. Which means that while they too are amphibious, they have greater access to the spirit realm than we do. And though they are bound by chains of darkness, it would be safe to call the spirit realm the "home court" of the Nephilim. They are doomed, but free to roam about and wage war against us. They are the aggressors, the instigators, the tyrants. However, being secretive in nature, our true enemies do not simply attack us the way we expect them to (which is with direct violence threatening our lives). They are not enemies that merely want to kill us. They are enemies that want to kill, steal and destroy our spirits. They know the consequences of that sort of death, because they are bound by it themselves, and as Aesop said best; misery loves company. Also, the greatest way the devil could hurt his creator is for him to sedduce as many spirits into darkness as he can, by drawing worship from God to self, and by causing us to fester in hatred and kill one another. We are mostly oblivious to the ultimate war that wages all around us, and we are being kept that way by entertainment, the comforting lies of this modern religious establishment, and the indulgence of our base vices.

But Paul told us in speaking of the Armor of God, that "We wage war not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places". If you know about the annual Moloch rituals being conducted by the American ruling class at the Bohemian Grove, you can see exactly what Paul is talking about. It's obvious by their behavior, that these men take spiritual matters seriously. It's time that we took it seriously as well. But American pastors are not revealing the real enemy of the world to their congregations. Either because they are a part of the deception, or they are still in darkness themselves. The war our so-called Christian nation does support is being fought by the greedy representing themselves as "good", and the poor people of middle-eastern cultures as "evil". Time has revealed the truth of this claim. Our nation has yet to suffer another attack like 9-11 on American soil, though that time will come at the hands of our own masters, but because of that "security", and by our shopping we think that we are surviving the forces of evil. The truth is that millions of misguided Americans are being led to true death like lambs to the slaughter.

Which is why the Bible warns so strongly against worldliness. For instance, Paul instructed us, "Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds". The failure of a person or culture to repent from selfish, sinful and destructive practices is the only real death sentence possible in this shared human experience. Christ demonstrated victory over death for all the world by his resurrection, by his forgiveness of the thief on the cross next to him, and by his message, best condensed in John 3:16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life"
This famous promise, however, raises to question the Christian Zionist stance that anyone who does not publicly confess that Christ is Lord is damned, and that all who do say so are saved. At face value, that stance seems to be reinforced by John 3:16. Problem solved, right? Belief admitted, enemy defeated, case closed. It seems simple enough. However, by searching scriptures (even by simply reading ahead in John chapter 3), you will find a slightly different take on this life-and-death spiritual struggle shared by the entire world. I hope it doesn't come as a shock for me to say that salvation is not as simple as a public proclamation. The blood of Christ is not just a "get out of hell free card". And the salvation that Christ gives us is not something that we will experience only after we die.

How selfish of us to wish to live our lives by our own inclinations, reserving only what we cannot control (the death of our mortal bodies) to be held in the hands of Christ! God offers us something much greater than "the afterlife", and he requires of us much more than our habitual lip service. We have the chance to taste of real life here on earth. And that chance was given to all who would taste of it, even if they've never heard the name of Jesus Christ, or come to hear the truth of his message. 1 John 2:2 says
"Christ is the appropriation of our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world"
The apostle Paul also defines this good news in Romans chapter 2-3, which comes as a scorn to proud religious elitists. I suggest taking a moment to read the entire passage before continuing. However, key verses of this passage are as follows: verses 13-16
For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but the doers of the law who will be justified. For when Gentiles, who do not have the law, by nature do what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. They show that the work of the law is written on their hearts, while their conscience also bears witness, and their conflicting thoughts accuse or even excuse them on that day when, according to my gospel, God judges the secrets of men by Christ Jesus.
and 28-29
For no one is a Jew who is merely one outwardly, nor is circumcision outward and physical. But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God.
I think it's clear why this passage poses a threat to the worldly religious establishment. The "alter calls" given at todays fundamentalist churches are a ritual not unlike the circumcision of ancient Jews. And while the experience of either means everything if it is followed by a transformed life that seeks truth, light, and love; likewise, it means nothing at all if it is followed by an unrepentant life. Going through the motions means nothing if the motions produce no inner change. The change is all that matters. For in that change, to all who experience it, is the spirit of God. Going back to 1 John 2, this time in verses 9-11, we find another confirmation of that principle.
"Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes."
In Matthew 6:22-23, Jesus said this:
"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"
And that is the dilemma faced by the modern American church. Untold millions of dollars are raised every year across the country by faithful tithes of active congregations. The church has become big business. And yet, the hateful, condemning attitude produced by the church's approval of Bush's "crusade against evildoers" is like bad fruit on the tree of our national religious image, festering and rotten. The Christians of our nation have been led astray, into a world our nation has formed by the force of her violence and her hypocrisy. In our hearts, we all know better. But guided by the darkness of hatred which has grown in our spirits, we hide under the devil's shroud from the true light of Christ. As long as we accuse, persecute, condemn and offer our consent to the killing other human beings (while hiding behind "Support Our Troops", and "God Bless America" decals), we have a death sentence on our own heads. But as soon as we forgive, love, and uplift one another, we step out of the darkness, and into the light of Christ. "Do not be deceived, God will not be mocked, every person will reap what they sew."

The threat of death surrounds us. Indeed, it is closing ranks. But it is not a death that terrorists could ever deliver. And it's not a death that Israeli or American soldiers can protect you from. Jesus spoke clearly, "Do not fear the one who can kill your body, but fear Him who can cast your body and soul into hell". If your pastor assures you that this "war on terror" is blessed by God, he is lying to you. God instructed us to love our enemies. This tactic being used by right-wing churches today was systematically exposed thousands of years ago by the prophets, apostles and Christ himself. Most notably in the entire book of Jude (around 1950 years ago). It's like a play-by-play of modern day. The frequency of these warnings should itself, stand as a warning. Because it demonstrates that this deep truth would not sink in too easily. And indeed, the unbelievable ignorance demonstrated by most "Bible reading" Christians regarding the true nature of God and antichrist is undeniable. John speaks of antichrists and false prophets in his epistles and warns the church that they would come out from the church.

Jesus often said, "He that has ears, let them hear!" Which should translate as "Wake up! Pay attention!"

Read for yourself what he had to say about the matter:
Matt 7:15-23
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits. "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'"
This "War On Terror" has been a lie from it's inception. 9-11, even if it was instigated by terrorists with box-cutters, was an opportunity for us to exercise forgiveness, to love our enemies, and to share the spirit of Christ with the world. That path would have led to peace. That approach is the only one that would have brought God's blessing on America. It's a lie for us to say or think that God is on our side in this war. Christ was absolutely clear about that. Love is our only hope for survival. Fear, hatred and preemptive strikes only serve to fulfill the ambition of the devil. As long as we support the war on terror, we are losing the war for our very souls. Let us put on the full armor of God, and step into the battle.

The Goliath Effect (part 4)

In the story so far we have identified in scripture an adversary walking in secret amongst human kind, the seeds of the serpent, otherwise known by world history as Anunaki, Nephilim, and Titans, who were the gods, demigods and heroes of ancient legend. Through exploring the stakes of this battle, we established the power of deception, within the church, as well as without. Also looking through Daniel, we discovered the promise of their rebirth, as the Nephilim will manifest in power during the reign of a final worldly empire, which is the American empire, the resurrection of Rome. I, and many others before me, have postulated that we are witnessing a cultural revolution very similar to that which swept the world in the days before the great flood. Any honest person can examine the world in which we now live, and acknowledge the abundance of sin within it (and within themselves). Cultural carelessness defined the attitude of those who perished in the flood. Thoughtless, habitual wickedness very similar to that which we experience today. The warning signs are all around us, as they may have been before the flood. Global warming, the threat of nuclear catastrophe, the dismantling of the constitution, all of these warnings scream as writing on the wall to any who care to look. Yet, instead of trembling in the face of certain judgment, we, as a culture, are simply carrying on as we always have, just as the people of Noah's day did.

There is a popular term amongst conspiracy enthusiasts. That term is "secret society". It describes groups of wealthy, powerful, influential men gathering in secret, acting outside the watchful eye of the general populace. The ways of these societies are passed on generally from generation to generation (as with George W Bush, who is, himself, a third generation member of the Yale Skull & Bones society). It should be noted that there are, in fact, certain bloodlines within the members of these various societies whose purity is revered above others, suggesting (or in the cases like the Nazi Thule society, flat out proclaiming) the belief in divine ancestry. The practices of these groups, especially in the Bohemian Grove, are bizarre and satanic in nature, which should draw our focus to the Bible. The Nephilim are the oldest, and purest definition of the term "secret society". A race of beings coexisting with men in secret. Genesis 6:4 says that they existed before the flood and also after that. In Gen 8:18, Noah and his family leave the ark to repopulate the world; 42 verses later, we are introduced to Nimrod, the emperor king of Babel, who represents the return of the Nephilim. From that point, their influence and warfare is faithfully and plainly recorded throughout the entire scripture, never skipping a beat. But over time the purity of their blood diminishes, and their stature decreases. That trend is depicted by the chart used at the beginning of this post. Daniel also bears witness to this phenomenon in his vision of the statue (part of Iron, Part of Clay). The image which represents the seed of the serpents begins by being represented as Gold, which is very pure and precious. The metals of every empire which follows the second Babylonian empire decrease in value and purity. That is, until the final manifestation which is so weak, it is not able to mingle with the seeds of men. That is the result of the demonic, or "godly" blood being watered down by the blood of their human mates throughout the generations. It was a gradual process. And the prevention of it should explain the habit of monarchs practicing incest throughout history. For instance, Og, king of Bashan, called the last of the giants, was reputed to have a bed nine cubits in length. He lived during the Hebrew's conquest of the promised land. Centuries later, David encounters Goliath in the most popular children's story of the Bible. Goliath the great champion was quite a bit shorter than Og, measuring six cubits and a span.

There is evidence in many ancient cultures of advanced knowledge of the structure of DNA. There are also many accounts, especially in Egypt, of genetic manipulation, by means of inter-species breeding. On that note, it should be mentioned that George W Bush vowed to protect America against Human-Animal hybrids in his 2006 state of the union address, confusing many Americans who happened to still be paying attention. Cloning may be the Nephilim's hope to attain the immortality the sins of their fathers took from them. However genetic manipulation has been their world-wide campaign from the time of the first empire to overcome the genetic defects of their ungodly existence.

The Nephilim who rule the modern world have done an outstanding job of covering their tracks, effectively erasing their story from the historical record. They've accomplished this by using the religious prejudice, or scientific skepticism of people to persuade them to easily dismiss consistant, ancient accounts of history as myth and legend. Stories of gods, giants, dragons, and unicorns, while similar in many world cultures, and also spoken of in scripture, are not believed at all by most people these days. We're just not geared to think along those lines. But secret societies still worship, revere and preserve the traditions of the gods and goddesses of the ancient world in the shadows. Who notices? Who cares? What gods? How can we explain this massive blindness? Daniel spoke of their final return as an attempt to blend themselves in with humanity, while no longer cross-breeding. Christ used a parable of weeds hidden among wheat to describe their presence in the world. Christians are quick to dismiss certain bold and clear statements regarding these false prophets, and false Christs, as speaking of sinners in general. But through faithful reading of scripture, the difference between the two becomes undeniable. There are sinners, and there are the wicked, who inspire sin in others. The rulers of the world, our real enemy, are these same "Wicked" so often referred to in scripture. But don't be afraid! Victory is assured to those who clothe themselves in Christ, who are married in spirit with Christ, who have been drawn by God to overcome the might of our enemy with weakness, and the wisdom of our enemy with what sounds like foolishness (hint: you're reading some of it now). Whatever power, whatever truth, whatever blessing comes out of these meager earthen vessels is by the will of God, who will destroy the proud kings of this world by the brightness of his coming. So fear not, children of light. For the darkness cannot ever overcome the living light, even though it's strength might be great, and it's power unmatched in the world. This evil empire we have established is destined for judgment, and as great and mighty as it may seem, it will certainly fall, by the promise of God.

The implications of this discovery, and the nature of the story itself is identical to what the children of Israel went through in Numbers 13. One the wilderness side of Jordan, Moses appointed 12 spies to explore the promised land, grab some food as evidence, and deliver a report of the people there. They went in and were astonished by the stature of it all. By their words they stood as grasshoppers against these giants. The food they encountered was also gigantic, forcing them to carry a cluster of grapes between two men (which is further evidence of their advanced scientific knowledge, and ability to manipulate living matter.) The cities were well fortified, and God's promise to deliver them was overshadowed by the sheer size of the people who lived there. Ten out of the twelve spies came back to report that they thought it would be a terrible idea to invade and seize what God had promised them. In the face of adversity, by their fear, they forgot the power of their God. Only Caleb spoke up in faith that they could do what God had promised would be done. And only Joshua supported him. Those two were the only men of their generation to cross Jordan again and enter in the promised land. The rest of the children of Israel were punished for their unbelief and fear by wandering in the wilderness for the next forty years until their generation died.

The next, and most obvious example of David against Goliath does not need to be recapped. God proved faithful and true to deliver a giant to a young man armed with a few stones and a lot of faith. What reason is there to be afraid? Even though I've explored, in depth, the nature of our enemy over the past few months, I stand assured that there is no obstacle too great for God, who has promised victory to the faithful. My trust is in the strength of his word. He doesn't lie. He didn't lie when describing our enemy, and he hasn't lied when he promised that in our weakness is his strength, which shall overcome all the power and might of our enemy, the seed of the serpent. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Messiah.

In researching this hidden history, I came across a pretty amazing passage, in which the Lord God humbles the tribes of Israel, right before their invasion and conquest of Canaan. Mind you, this is forty years after their parents let their fear get the best of them. This is also a tribe of people that irritated Moses to the brink of suicide, and who infuriated the Lord God to wrath on many occasions (before and after they claimed the promised land). This is a holy nation that wholly consists of normal human beings. Their claim to fame in God's eyes has always been a pure, human bloodline which led from Eve down to Jesus. His promise lay with the seed of Israel, and his patience was tested by the people who protected that seed, which happens to have traveled through Caleb, the only Spy to have faith that God would give them victory against the giants. It also, more famously goes through king David, whose faith allowed him to slay a giant, and win many wars. But the bottom line is this: God was faithful in his promise to Eve, to Noah, and to Abraham. In due time, through much warfare with the seeds of the serpent, God's son was born in this world, and his purpose was carried through to victory. God knew the plan from the beginning. He made a point to remind his people of it, lest they become puffed up with pride and a sense of entitlement, thinking that God was blind to their sin by reason of favoritism.

Listen, Israel. You will soon cross the Jordan River to go in and force out nations that are bigger and stronger than you. They have large cities with walls up to the sky. The people there are Anakites (i.e. Nephilim), who are strong and tall. You know about them, and you have heard it said: "No one can stop the Anakites." But today remember that the Lord your God goes in before you to destroy them like a fire that burns things up. He will defeat them ahead of you, and you will force them out and destroy them quickly, just as the Lord has said.

After the Lord your God has forced those nations out ahead of you, don't say to yourself, "The Lord brought me here to take this land because I am so good." No! It is because these nations are evil that the Lord will force them out ahead of you. You are going in to take the land, not because you are good and honest, but because these nations are evil. That is why the Lord your God will force them out ahead of you, to keep his promise to your ancestors, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The Lord your God is giving you this good land to take as your own. But know this: It is not because you are good; you are a stubborn people.

The Messiah Conspiracy

Psalm 144:5-8
Bow thy heavens, O LORD, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them. Send thine hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange children; Whose mouth speaks vanity, and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.
The Nephilim; fathered by fallen angels and born of human mothers, have scrambled to the top of humanity. There, perched like birds of prey, they have ruled, conquered, and maintained many empirical dynasties throughout the ages. Originating as the famous heroes and gods of legend, the truth about them has been carved in stone all around the world. Part history, part warning, the evidence of their existence is covered up without being removed. It is dismissed as fable, deliberately by their own bloodlines, who rule the world today from in the shadows.

Their very existence is an abomination before God; their nature is wicked. The Lord ordered 7 tribes of this literal secret society of giants occupying Canaan to be completely wiped out by the Hebrew army in Deuteronomy 20, telling the Hebrews to "spare nothing that breathes". This seeming act of mercilessness by God is the source of great controversy for people who are critical of the Bible; for to the natural mind this is a great contradiction to a God who is supposed to be loving and merciful.

However, when viewed from a greater perspective, this contradiction of mercy transforms into an affirmation of hope and deliverance. The very presence of Nephilim in Canaan was part of Lucifer's plan to eradicate "the perfect". That perfect is the only one who could break their grip on the world. It was the seed Passed on from Eve through Noah, Abraham, Judah, and David; the yet unborn Jesus Christ. Today we are going to focus on the greatest conspiracy against God and men in Biblical history; the plan to wipe out the messianic bloodline.

Psalm 64 (from David)
"Hear my voice, O God, in my meditation; preserve my life from fear of the enemy. Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked, from the rebellion of the workers of iniquity, who sharpen their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows—bitter words, that they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. They encourage themselves in an evil matter: they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?"They devise iniquities: “We have perfected a shrewd scheme.” Both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep. But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; Suddenly they shall be wounded. So He will make them stumble over their own tongue; All who see them shall flee away. All men shall fear, And shall declare the work of God; For they shall wisely consider His doing. The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and trust in Him. And all the upright in heart shall glory."

Although this world has been betrayed unto the devil for now, Lucifer is still a subject of the rule and decree of God. But just as a trapped pest will desperately try to find freedom, so has the devil scrambled and squirmed, killed and destroyed trying to prevent his own demise. God had a plan and a promise for the redemption of humanity which he announced through his curse on the serpent in Eden (Genesis 3:15). From the moment of Adam and Eve's eviction from Eden, Satan immediately began planning to exploit the one loophole he found in the prophecy: that humanity's deliverance and his own destruction would be of human seed. He used the advantage of time to attempt the eradication of all purely human beings, simply to keep the Messiah from being born.

Jesus Christ demonstrated to the world the greatest love it has ever known by his obedient death on the cross. His resurrection is, to believers, the greatest demonstration of victory in history. His teachings guide us from darkness into light, and he has risen from death to crush the serpent's head and judge the whole world fairly once and for all. In Revelation it is revealed that Jesus, the Lamb of God, is the only one in heaven or on earth who is worthy to set loose the stages of judgment of the world. That process is happening now because of Him, and it will continue until the wicked are plucked up from this place, and cast into the fabled lake of fire.

From the pre-flood world all the way to the crucifixion, the serpent and his seed were trying to wipe out the seed of the messiah. That plan was their top priority. But the Lord was always faithful in protecting and delivering his promise for redemption. During the first Babylonian Empire, God called Te-rah, father of Abraham, to go to Canaan. When Te-rah settled down and finished his life mid-way to their destination, God called Abraham to finish that quest. Years later, when Abraham's great grandchildren were forced to move from Canaan to Egypt because of a famine, the Lord paved the way for them through the life of Joseph. They did not move back when the famine passed, and so the Nephilim Egyptians eventually enslaved them. 400 years later, Canaan has been taken over by tribes of Nephilim, and the Egyptians have enslaved the Hebrews. It is when Pharaoh decides to wipe out the seed of Abraham by killing all male infants that Moses is born, set aside by God to free and form the nation of Israel.

It should be noted that the nation of Israel was established in a wilderness which was cut off on both sides by water, and beyond the water, by Nephilim; the Egyptians on one side of the Red Sea, and the Canaanites on the other side of Jordan. And let me remind you that it was the people's unbelief in God's promise to empower them to defeat their giant enemies which caused them to be punished by wandering in the desert for forty years. By faith we are empowered beyond their greatest means. Psalm37:12-16 tells us
The wicked plots against the just, and gnashes upon him with his teeth. The LORD shall laugh at him: for he sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay those that are of upright conversation. Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. A little that a righteous man has is better than the riches of many wicked.
In claiming the promised land, the Hebrew had to rid it of it's previous occupants. But unlike the conflict between Israel and Palestine today, God himself sent them forth to conquer, by his prophets. Another difference between now and then is that the Canaanites were giants. What was once decreed by God and is now justified by the religious right is truly wicked in the eyes of the Lord today. He saves the oppressed, and fights for the downtrodden and the poor. Difficult as it may be, that describes modern day Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghanis, and the majority of the Continent of Africa. Mainstream, Western Christianity has no excuse for it's negligence of the oppressed, this current religious sickness can only be understood by further examining the deeds of our enemies.

During the conquest of Canaan, some of the Nephilim were left alive, against the commands of God. They either fled to other parts of the world, like Greece, or they stayed in the region, to war with Israel for years to come. The Philistines are an example of such a remnant. Because of Israel's initial disobedience to wipe out all traces of the Canaanites, many of their men were later sacrificed in war and conflict. David, author of most of Psalms, found fame in battling a giant, and for the rest of his life he fought with the enemy of his seed.

Over the years this conflict continued, up to the point that Christ was born. When this happened, King Herod was swayed by the devil to try and kill the newborn messiah. After that attempt was thwarted by God, and when Jesus was baptized and anointed, the devil tried his best to tempt him into self destruction out in the wilderness. When that failed, Satan worked on the hearts of the scribes and pharisees, stirring in them a compulsion to put Jesus to death. The devil truly saw the crucifixion as his greatest accomplishment, for he had finally overcome the dreaded seed that carried the power to unleash his judgment. But of course we all know what happened after that.

To threaten the greatest manifestation of love is, without question, the purest of evils. Which explains God's uncompromising retaliation against this conspiracy to wipe out the seed of Eve. Examples of that retaliation range from the great flood to the last battle which is being fought today. All the mystery that enshrouds these seeds of the serpent and their nefarious plans is not of God's design, but rather their careful planning and constant deception. Otherwise, why would God be so candid in his exposure of them to any who look? He has allowed them to remain hidden only from those who do not think to look for them. Our responsibility lies in Asking so that it can be given to us, seeking so the truth may be found, and knocking, so the door may be opened unto us. We must take steps in order to enter into the light.

The way is clear, the light is calling. For us to carry the mantle of Christ, we must seek out and follow the truth, defend the poor, and grow in love. For vengeance is in the hands of the Lord, and our greatest weapon against evil is our ability to overcome it with good. This current attempt by wolves in sheep's clothing to eradicate the body of Christ is just the same as earlier attempts to kill Jesus himself. But just as victory was given to him, so it will be ours to claim, by faith. We must recognize the nature of the spiritual war we are in, and we must use the light entrusted to us to ward off the agents of darkness.

Psalm 18:28-30

For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, By my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
