FROM THE EDITOR
AMERICA IN GRAVE DANGER!
The prophet Isaiah wrote, “Behold, Yahweh’s hand is not shortened,
that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your
iniquities have separated between you and your Elohim, and your sins have hid
his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood,
and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath
muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth:
they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth
iniquity. They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that
eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with
their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in
their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood:
their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their
paths. The way of peace they know
not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked
paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far
from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold
obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like
the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the
night; we are in desolate places as dead men. We roar all like bears, and mourn
sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it
is far off from us. For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our
sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our
iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against Yahweh, and
departing away from our Elohim, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and
uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away
backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and
equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh
himself a prey: and Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no
These words that were applied to ancient Israel fit the picture of
today’s America. This nation has been so greatly blessed by our great Creator
Yahweh, but instead of being thankful we have filled our land with the most
grievous iniquities and transgressions. Moses’ prophecy fits our nation
perfectly, “But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art
grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook Elohim which made
him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked him to
jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. They
sacrificed unto devils, not to Elohim; to elohim whom they knew not, to new
elohim that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. Of the Rock that begat
thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten Elohim that formed thee. And when
Yahweh saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of
his daughters. And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their
end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no
faith. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not Elohim; they have
provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with
those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish
nation,” Dt. 32:15-21.
There are so many, many shameful, wicked and evil things going on in this
country today. Yahweh is even now allowing the unbelieving and wicked to be so
stirred up against any who claims to believe in and follow the Scriptures that
contain both the Old and New Testaments that they are removing their symbols and
signs from public view. We are being transformed into nation that is ashamed of
the Scriptures, that refuses to allow anyone to bring a copy of them into their
schools, universities, colleges, public places, etc. This is being brought about
by the ACLU, atheism, Islam, etc.
The evils of abortion, homosexuality, and every other kind of blasphemous
act are encouraged. To speak out against these and many other evils puts a
person in danger of facing criminal charges!
On top of all that, America has a leader who appears and sounds glorious
and so promising when he speaks, and yet his words are totally void of any
actions except the actions that are contrary, opposite to what he says. Many in
the nation seem to be waking up to his void and empty promises, but are helpless
to do anything about it. Even the military leaders are now openly contrary to
his plans and purposes, yet are helpless because he is the Commander-in-Chief.
Our leaders and military are now in the same state that the German leaders and
military were under Hitler. Even in the face of destruction, they dared not go
Osama Ben Laden and his Al Qaida organization struck at the U. S. on
September 11, 2001. President Bush rallied the nation against them by attacking
Afghanistan and Iraq. The military was successful in overpowering the enemies
scattering them into Syria, Pakistan, Iran, etc. However, they were never able
to crush the head of the serpent, Osama Ben Laden. Under President Obama, Ben
Laden was slain and the declaration was that Al Qaida was destroyed. What does
it say in Isaiah above? “...that which is crushed breaks out into a viper!”
Islam is on the march! Now there are several new enemies to deal with. The
seemingly organization that is causing the greatest concern is ISIS.
ISIS is the name of an Egyptian goddess which causes this author to
suspect that their creation is Masonic! They suddenly came on the scene with big
financial backing (bankers) and have plenty of American weaponry at their
disposal. Their head was released from imprisonment in 2009 by none other than
President Barak Obama. Bagdadi (their head) told the guards that he would see
them in Washington D. C. Even though America, the whole Congress, and the
military desire this organization to be dealt with and destroyed, the President
continues to waffle and tender inconsistent unworkable plans.
Does anyone else smell a rat! Who else is it that is a beautiful subtle
devious being whose words sound beautiful but are full of deceit? Who is the
murderer and liar from the beginning?
The problem for America is the same as that of ancient Israel and Judah.
If you are going to dance with the devil then you will suffer the consequences
of destruction and death.
This author would like to point out the work of another author named
Jonathan Cahn and his book The Harbinger. While he has revealed so
much in this book, there is so much more to mine out of the Scriptures
Isis is now encouraging those Muslim who would like to go join them to
stay where they are and begin their own campaign of death and destruction within
America’s own gates!
America is in grave danger! So is the rest of the world. Turn to your
Creator before its too late! JH
The Prophet Daniel has a prophetic revelation in chapter
seven. There are four worldly beast kingdoms that arise out of the "great
sea," (Dan. 7:1-2). The "Great Sea" was known anciently as the
Mediterranean. The first beast was represented as a lion with eagle’s wings.
This was Babylon. Babylon invaded the eastern part of the Mediterranean, which
included Tyre, the land of Canaan, and Egypt. Tyre and Egypt were the
controllers of the Mediterranean at that time. With Babylon's mastery over them,
she had power over the sea.
The second beast was presented as a bear with three ribs
in its mouth. This was the Medo-Persian Empire. She began her reign over the
Mediterranean waters with the fall of Babylon.
The third beast was presented as a leopard with four heads
and wings, which typified the Greco-Macedonian Empire begun by Alexander the
The fourth beast was not able to be described by any known
earthly animal. This was the Roman Empire that was raised up by the Caesars. The
power of this kingdom was to continue over the earth until the time that Yahshua
the Messiah returns to take the power of the kingdom and rule. (Dan. 7:9-11;
In Daniel chapter 2, an image is presented that is one
complete image from head to foot. This reveals the succession of the kingdoms,
which began with Babylon and ends with Rome. The head always controls the body,
so all of these kingdoms are under the control of the Babylonian system. Each
kingdom inherits its power from that first kingdom, and its successors. This is
why Babylon is still around in Revelation chapter 17, which is in league with
the great dragon that has deceived the whole world (Rev. 12:9; 17:1-5). But the
beast kingdoms of Daniel 7 are still diverse from one another.
The fourth kingdom of Daniel chapter 2 goes through some
changes. At first it is legs of iron (Old Rome), then it becomes feet of iron
and potter's clay (Old Rome, and New Rome), finally it becomes iron and miry
clay (Old Rome and Moscow, Russia, the third Rome).
There are seven heads associated with the beast kingdoms
if we count the head of the lion of Babylon (1), the head of the bear of Persia
(1+1=2), the four heads of the leopard of Greece (2+4=6), and the head of the
terrible beast of Rome (1 + 6 = 7).
The beast of the book of Revelation has seven heads and
ten horns, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea (Mediterranean), and saw a
beast (Rome) rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon
his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast
(Rome) which I saw was like unto a leopard (Macedonia/Greece), and his feet were
as the feet of a bear (Medo-Persia), and his mouth as the mouth of a lion
(Babylon): and the dragon (Satan/Leviathan) gave him his power, and his seat,
and great authority," Rev. 13:1-2.
great red (fiery) dragon of Revelation 12 is revealed to have almost exactly the
same appearance, "And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a
great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his
heads," v. 3. The seven heads with crowns are the four worldly kingdoms
that the dragon is given power over as we described above.
The serpent has been given four major kingdoms with which
to exercise his rule over the Mediterranean world. One of those four kingdoms,
the Greco-Macedonian Empire was divided into four kingdoms. When he confronted
Yahshua, he took Him to a high mountain, "…the devil (Heb. = ha-seir) taketh him up into an exceeding high
mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down
and worship me," Mt. 4:8-9. The book of Luke adds a little more to the
incident, "And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto
him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto
him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I
give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine,"
This should tell you who is behind the power and control
of the nations of today's world, and that those who are given power are not
worshipping and serving Yahweh, but rather the devil! Furthermore, they commit
fornication with the harlot named Mystery
Babylon, “And there came one of the seven angels which had the
seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto
thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed
fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine
of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the
wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a
scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten
horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour,
and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her
hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her
forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the
saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahshua: and when I saw her, I
wondered with great admiration,” Rev. 17:1-6.
Can anything be more clear? The GREAT SERPENT LEVIATHAN
seeks to be worshipped and exalted as the MOST HIGH! “How art thou fallen from
heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground,
which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above
the stars of El: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the
sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be
like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to
the sides of the pit. They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and
consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did
shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities
thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?” Isa. 14:12-17.
His desires, of course, are realized through the last
great beast power, “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death;
and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they
worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make
war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and
blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And
he opened his mouth in blasphemy against Elohim, to blaspheme his name, and his
tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war
with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds,
and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose
names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation
of the world,” Rev. 13:3-8.
It is also a fact that beginning with Octavian Caesar, the
one who raised up, or converted Rome to the
Roman Empire, the one who held the office of Caesar, and Augustus was
declared to be a god. This included Constantine Caesar who took over the
corrupted remnants of Yahshua’s followers, changing, corrupting, and twisting
the faith into that of Mithraism and other idolatrous movements (syncretism)
rather than the purity of obedience to Yahweh’s commands and word. He
introduced Sunday worship and names of blasphemy which continues to this very
prophet Ezekiel is inspired to write, "In the tenth year, in the tenth
month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy against
him, and against all Egypt: Speak, and say, Thus saith Adonai Yahweh; Behold, I
am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon
that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own,
and I have made it for myself. But
I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy rivers to stick
unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers, and
all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales. And I will leave thee
thrown into the wilderness, thee and all the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall
upon the open fields; thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have
given thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the heaven.
And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am Yahweh, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of
Israel. When they
took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder:
and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be
at a stand. Therefore thus saith Adonai Yahweh; Behold, I will bring a sword
upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee. And the land of Egypt shall be
desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am Yahweh: because he hath said,
The river is mine, and I have made it. Behold, therefore I am against thee, and
against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and
desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia," Ez.
Again, he writes, "And it came to pass in the twelfth
year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of
Yahweh came unto me, saying, Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king
of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou
art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy
rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers. Thus
saith Adonai Yahweh; I will therefore spread out my net over thee with a company
of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my net. Then will I leave thee
upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all
the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the
whole earth with thee. And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the
valleys with thy height. I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou
swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee. And when
I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark;
I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. All
the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon
thy land, saith Adonai Yahweh. I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I
shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou
hast not known. Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee,
when I shall brandish my sword before them; and they shall tremble at every
moment, every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall," Ez. 32:1-10.
Both of the words "dragon" and "whale"
are translated from the same Hebrew word. That word is tanniyn (nynt). It is defined as; intensive from the same as 8565; a marine or land
monster, i.e. sea-serpent or jackal (Strong's Exhaustive
Concordance). It is the same word that is utilized for Leviathan in
Isaiah 27:1 when it calls him “the dragon
(nynt) that is in the
#8565 is the Hebrew word tan
(nt) which is defined
as; from an unused
root probably meaning to elongate; a monster (as preternaturally formed), i.e. a
sea-serpent (or other huge marine animal); also a jackal (or other hideous land
In actuality, tanniyn
is a combination of two Hebrew words tan
(nt), and niyn (nyn). Niyn
is #5209 in Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
and is defined as "progeny!" It is generally translated as
Tanniyn (nynt) has to do with
the child, son, or seed of the serpent/dragon!
Furthermore, Pharaoh in Hebrew is
h[rp. It just so happens that the Hebrew word for
"bullock" is par
(rp). It is
interesting that the Pharaoh was
the son of god through the "apis bullock." (see image [figure #1])
The Hebrew ending of the word Pharaoh (h[) yields
another interesting concept. It is ayin
([), hei (h), which would look like this in Pictorial
Hebrew eo. The ayin is the picture of an eye, while the hei appears as a little man who has become
surprised, or elated at what the eye has revealed to him. Pharaoh in Pictorial
Hebrew would look like this eorp.
The pei (p) is the picture
of a mouth, the resh (r) is the picture
of a head. Thus Pharaoh, being the son of god, is the head (r) who declares (p) what the eye (o) beholds (e). In other words,
he would be the chief spiritual advisor, or the one who is able to declare those
things that are spirit and worthy of worship. Of course, this made him the head
over idolatry because his headdress reveal (-s, -ed) that he is/was an agent of
the serpent. (see image [figure #2])
The child, seed, or heir of the serpent (taniyn/nynt) was depicted as the mother Isis and the
child god Horus (see image [figure #3]). He and his father Osiris were always
depicted as the all-seeing eye over the pyramid. (see image [figure #4])
The internet Wikipedia has this to say about Pharaoh,
"Pyramid texts ca. the 25th
century BC describe the nature of the Pharaoh in different
characters as both Horus and Osiris. The Pharaoh as
Horus in life became the Pharaoh as Osiris in death, where he was united with
the rest of the gods. New incarnations of Horus succeeded the deceased pharaoh
on earth in the form of new Pharaohs.
lineage of Horus, the eventual product of unions between the children of Atum,
may have been a means to explain and justify Pharaonic power; The gods produced
by Atum were all representative of cosmic and terrestrial forces in Egyptian
life; by identifying Horus as the offspring of these forces, then identifying
him with Atum himself, and finally identifying the Pharaoh with Horus, the
Pharaoh theologically had dominion over all the world.
The notion of Horus as the Pharaoh seems to have been
superseded by the concept of the Pharaoh as the son of Ra
during the Fifth Dynasty of Egypt.
Horus was born to the goddess Isis
after she retrieved all the dismembered body parts of her murdered husband Osiris,
except his p...s which was thrown into the Nile and eaten by a catfish, and used her magic powers to resurrect
Osiris and fashion a gold phallus to conceive her son. Once Isis knew she was
pregnant with Horus, she fled to the Nile
marshlands to hide from her brother Set
who jealously killed Osiris and who she knew would want to kill their son. There
Isis bore a divine son, Horus. (end
of Wikipedia article)
was Atum? He would have been none other than Adam. Wasn't Eve told by the
serpent that in the day that they ate of the forbidden tree that they would
become as Elohim knowing good and evil? (Gen. 3:5)
The situation is that Adam and Eve were already created in
the image of Elohim, but the serpent lied to her making her think that something
was amiss. Thus, the Pharaohs proclaimed their descent from Adam (Atum) who was
the son of Elohim, which gave them also the power of Elohim as sons of Elohim,
and to be rulers over the whole earth.
Since Osiris and Horus are both sun-gods, then the sun
would be represented as their eye. (See illustrations)
Furthermore, the Egyptian goddess Isis was also known as
the “Queen of Heaven!” The Queen of Heaven was known as the “Great Mother
of the Gods!”
All conquering heroes of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome
would have gone into Egypt to learn of the secrets of Pharaoh in order to
consummate their power over their kingdoms. Julius Caesar even married Cleopatra
which gave his dynasty power over the Roman kingdom, and led to his desire to be
worshipped as the “son of god” whereupon he was slain by the Roman Senate.
However, his adopted son, Octavian, who became known as Augustus succeeded where
Julius Caesar failed.
EVE, CAIN – SEMIRAMIS, NIMROD – ISIS,
Jude writes, “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to
write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you,
and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once
delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were
before of old ordained to this condemnation, impious men, turning the grace of
our Elohim into lasciviousness, and denying the only Sovereign Yahweh, and our
Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah…. Likewise also
these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of
dignities…. But these speak
evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute
beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! For they have
gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily
after the error of Balaam for reward,
and perished in the gainsaying of Core,”
Jude 3-4, 8, 10-11.
The “faith of the saints” was the truth that Yahshua
was the “Word of Yahweh” Who dealt with the saints of old such as; Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, Israel, Moses, Aaron, Yahshua ben Nun, Samuel, David, the
prophets, etc. (Gen. 15:1; Psa. 33; Jn. 1:1-14, etc.). It was faithfully
recorded by the Apostles John and Paul that He emptied Himself of the power that
He had as Yahweh, and Melchizedek, to become a man and dwell among us for the
purpose of saving His people from the power of death (Jn. 1:1-14; Phil. 2:5-8).
The gainsaying of Core (Korah) has to do with proclaiming
oneself to be a chosen priest (minister) of Yahweh when such simply isn’t the
case (Numbers 16). Rabbinic Judaism falls into this category. Any other
priesthood, ministry that hasn’t been chosen by Yahweh falls into the same
category, such as the Caesars being Pontifex Maximus. This is the office that
Constantine possessed when he entered into the corrupted remnants of the New
Testament Assembly and began to dictate the mode of worship.
Balaam, because of his lust for reward, taught Balak how
to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel so that they would turn
away from Yahweh to embrace idolatrous women. (Num. 31, esp. v. 16) He did this
even after Yahweh withstood his three attempts to curse Israel. Those of the
spirit of Balaam are the ones who will teach error for the sake of fattening
But what about “the way of Cain?” Scripture presents
his birth in this manner, “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and
bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from Yahweh,” Gen. 4:1.
Let’s consider some things here. Adam is the first
created man to whom was given sovereignty over the earth. (The serpent, of
course, usurped this sovereignty through his deception of the woman.)
Anciently, the firstborn son was the strength of the family. (Remember that
Yahweh destroyed all of the firstborn sons of Egypt from the Pharoah to the
lowest animals while saving the firstborn of Israel because they obeyed Him
through the slaying of the Passover lamb, and its shed blood.) The firstborn son
was to take the father’s place as head of the family upon the father’s
demise. Cain’s original inheritance was to take Adam’s place at his
father’s death. The firstborn son was also to be the spiritual head of the
Yahweh’s curse on the serpent included, “And I will
put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it
shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel,” Gen. 3:15.
Let’s take a look at the Hebrew of Genesis 4:1 because
this will be quite revealing: ~dahw (And Adam) [dy (knew) hwx-ta (Eve) wtva (his
wife) rhtw (and she conceived) dltw (and
bare) !yq-ta (Cain) rmatw (and
said) ytynq (I have gotten) vya (man) hwhy-ta (Yahweh).
This is a literal word for word translation. Did you notice the aleph and tau
that accompanied the names of Eve, Cain, and Yahweh?
Eve, who was beguiled (deceived) by the serpent, declared,
“qaniti (ytynq/I have gotten) ish (vya/man)
“Qaniti” is simply the first person singular from of the verb “qanah”
which is defined as; to erect, i.e. create; by extension,
to procure, especially by purchase (causatively,
sell); by implication to own (Strong’s Exhaustive
Concordance, Hebrew Lexicon, #7069).
In reality, Eve thought that Cain was the chosen seed who
was to bruise (crush) the serpent’s head. The English version of Cain’s name
is rather misleading. It should have been presented as Qayin after the Hebrew
rendering. The first letter of his name should have been presented with a
“Q” rather than a “C”. When we look at the definition of the name Cain/Qayin
in Strong’s Concordance, we can get the
Cain/Qayin is #7014 and represents the proper name, which
is defined as; the same as 7013 (with a play upon the affinity to 7069); Kajin,
the name of the first child, also of a place in Palestine, and of an Oriental
tribe. Notice it reveals that it is taken from the common noun #7013 qayin,
which is defined as; a lance (as striking fast):--spear, but it also has affinity to 7069 which is
Cain/Qayin with its affinity to “qanah” means that she
had acquired the ability to strike through, crush the head of the serpent. The
accompanying figure shows the Egyptian goddess Isis
with a lance/spear (Qayin/!yq) being thrust
into the head of a
(See figure #5)
we have a play on words. Adam was the man (iysh/vya) while eve was the woman/wife (iyshah/hva). Isis is the Greek rendering for the
Egyptian goddess. The Greeks had no ability to pronounce the shin (v) and generally
ended many proper
with the sigma (s)
thus, Isis has to do with mother Eve as the woman (hva/iyshah/Isis) before the flood. Here we have the
original mother and child that has been so prominently displayed, worshipped,
honored, and adored throughout the history of mankind.
We can see this faulty thinking of hers through her second
son. Genesis 4:2a says, “And she again bare his brother Abel.” It should
have been translated, “And she continued to bare his brother Abel.” Qayin
and Abel were twins. Once again, the name Abel is a mistranslation. The Hebrew
presents it as lbh (Hebel).
It is #1893 being defined as; the same as 1892; Hebel, the son of Adam. #1892 is
revealed to be the Hebrew word hebel
(lbh) which is defined as; from
1891; emptiness or vanity; figuratively,
something transitory and unsatisfactory;
often used as an adverb. Notice that it, in turn, comes from #1891 which is the
Hebrew word habal (lbh) being
defined as; a primitive root; to be vain in act, word, or
expectation; specifically to lead astray.
The Hebrew letter hei
generally the article “the”. If we drop the hei
remaining word is Bal or Bel (lb).
Bel is the savior deity of Babylon, which is elongated
into Ba’al of the Canaanites. The worship of Bel/Ba’al is a super-secret
mystery religion that was established before the flood and re-instituted in the
earth through one named Nimrod and his wife Semiramis.
The mother and child of Christmas (Dec. 25th) is the mother Isis, and child Horus of this
secret mystery religion. It is a proven fact that the true Savior was never born
on December 25th.
The Pharaoh’s in conjunction with the Caesars of the Roman Empire are the ones
who have concocted this myth. They have hi-jacked the true faith, leading the
world to worship in the religion of the beast power rather than the pure faith
of true Savior and Messiah.
Remember that it was the great Roman General Pompey who
subdued the Cilician pirates, and in doing so, introduced the worship of their
god Mithras into the Roman Empire. Of course, Mithra/Mithras was also one of the
great gods of the Persian Empire. The pirate flag is that of the "skull and
crossbones." The skull and crossbones is placed upon many dangerous
chemicals, medicines, radioactivity, etc. in today's world. It is a symbol of
The "skull and bones" is also a modern day
symbol of Freemasonry. There is also the famous "Skull and Bones" of
The Prophet Jeremiah was inspired to write, “The word
that came to Jeremiah from Yahweh, saying, Stand in the gate of Yahweh’s
house, and proclaim there this word, and say, Hear the word of Yahweh, all ye of Judah, that enter in at
these gates to worship Yahweh. Thus saith Yahweh of hosts, the Elohim of Israel,
Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.
Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of Yahweh, The temple of Yahweh,
The temple of Yahweh, are these. For if ye throughly amend your ways and your
doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour; If ye
oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent
blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: Then will I
cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for
ever and ever. Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit. Will ye
steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto
Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me
in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all
these abominations? Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers
in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith Yahweh,” Jer. 7:1-11.
It just so happens that the Hebrew word for “robbers”
in verse 11 above is periytes
(cyrp) from whence
would come our English word “pirates!” What were they doing? King
Solomon’s foreign wives had turned his eyes away from Yahweh and caused him to
build temples for their false pagan gods. The people of Jeremiah’s day were
going into those temples to worship those gods, and then going to Yahweh’s
house, Yahweh’s temple to worship Him also. This, of course, was unacceptable
We can also see what was going on back in Yahshua’s day
because when the second temple was built, and Yahshua came into it, He utilized
Jeremiah’s words in verse 11 against them, “And Yahshua went into the temple
of Yahweh, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and
overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold
doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of
prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves,” Mt. 21:12-13.
Yahshua was utilizing an excerpt from Jeremiah 7:11 in
these words here. He would have been calling it a “den (cave) of pirates!”
It just so happens that the word “den” in Jeremiah is translated from the
Hebrew word murat, which should
have been translated as “cave!” Remember that Mithras was worshipped in
caves. Remember that the Cilician Pirates were the ones who were worshipping
Both John the Baptist, and Yahshua the Messiah condemned
the Pharisees of their day calling them vipers, and serpents! (Mt. 3:7, 12:34,
23:33; Lk. 3:7)
Yahshua told them that their father was the Devil, “Ye
are of your father the devil (ha-Seir),
and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a
lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it,” Jn.
Nothing had changed from Jeremiah’s day to Yahshua’s
day! Nothing has changed from Yahshua’s day to our day. Modern day Orthodox
Judaism traces its roots back to the Pharisees of Yahshua’s day. The Karaites
are descended from the Sadducees and Scribes. Orthodox Judaism gets so many of
their tenets from the Kaballah, and the Talmud. Freemasonry’s tenets and
secrets also come from the Kaballah (also Qaballah, Cabala, etc.). The symbols
of power all go back to Pharaoh of Egypt, and beyond the flood to Cain and his
The Greek word for Pharisees is Pharisaios, which comes from
the Hebrew word parash. It is defined
as; of Hebrew origin (compare 6567); a separatist,
i.e. exclusively religious;
a Pharisean, i.e. Jewish sectary. Let’s look at its Hebrew origin #6567 which
is the Hebrew word parash
is defined as; a primitive root; to separate, literally (to disperse) or figuratively
(to specify); also (by
implication) to wound. The Pictorial Hebrew looks like this srp being peh (p
= mouth/word), resh (r = head), shin (s
= destruction). They are the heads (r)
whose word (p), teachings,
doctrines lead to destruction (s)!
Isn’t that what Yahshua accused them of? But woe unto
you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye
shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither
go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. Woe unto
you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to
make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye
make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say,
Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by
the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! Ye fools and blind:
for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? And,
Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the
gift that is upon it, he is guilty. Ye
fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that
sanctifieth the gift? Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it,
and by all things thereon. And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it,
and by him that dwelleth therein. And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by
the throne of Elohim, and by him that sitteth thereon. Woe unto you, scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have
omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these
ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at
a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are
full of extortion and excess. Thou blind Pharisee,
cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them
may be clean also. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear
beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all
uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but
within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because ye build the tombs of
the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, and say, If we had
been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in
the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye
be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the
prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape
the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets,
and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some
of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to
city: That upon you may come all the
righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the
blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the
altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon
this generation,” Mt. 23:13-36.
What did He say!!??? 1. They shut up the kingdom of heaven
against men. 2. They are pretenders. 3. They will receive the greater damnation
(judgment). 4. They are children of hell (Gehenna). 5. They are blind guides. 6.
They are fools and blind. 7. They appear beautiful outwardly, but inwardly are
full of dead men’s bones, and all uncleanness being whited sepulchers. 8. They
are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 9. They are the children of them which
killed the prophets. 10. They are serpents, and a generation of vipers. 11. All
of the righteous blood shed upon the earth from Abel to Zacariah son of
Barachiah will come upon them (in the guise of Yahshua, Himself).
Jewish Freemasonry along with modern day so-called
Gentile, or non-Hebrew Freemasonry all utilize the symbols of Egypt. This is why
the American dollar bill possesses the symbols of the Egyptian pyramid with the
all-seeing eye of Horus on its backside. (See Figure # 4)

SHEMITAH—YEAR OF RELEASE
Because of the abundance of crops, fruit, etc., this
author has suspected that this year, from the feast of 2013 to the feast of 2014
has been a sixth year in the count of the land Sabbath as spoken of in the
Scriptures (Lev. 25). Jonathan Cahn has written a book that is fast becoming a
“best seller” that substantiates this idea. Let’s see what we may be able
to learn from these things. Yahweh’s word requires two witnesses to establish
a thing. (Dt. 17:6; Mt. 18:16) This article will be based on the witness of
Jonathan Cahn and Jerry Healan.
By Jerry Healan
In the previous article, entitled “Atonement & Restoration”, we
touched on the land Sabbaths spoken of in Lev. 25:1-9. Neither the northern
kingdom of Israel, nor the southern kingdom of Judah observed these Sabbaths
Yahweh warned, “But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all
these commandments; And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor
my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my
covenant….I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto
desolation, and I will not smell the savour of your sweet odours. And I will
bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be
astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a
sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. Then shall the land enjoy her sabbaths,
as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies' land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her sabbaths.
As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it
did not rest in your sabbaths, when ye dwelt upon it,”
Lev. 26:14-15, 31-35.
The history of both kingdoms reveals that they were overthrown and cast out
of the land. The survivors were cursed to come under the Gentile (non-Hebrew)
kingdoms. While remnants of Judah and Levi were blessed to return and rebuild
the temple and live in the land for a time, they continued to refuse to observe
the land Sabbaths and were overthrown and taken into a second captivity by the
America and England and other English speaking countries have been the
bastions of Protestantism, which is the belief in, and following of the New
Testament. These Protestant faiths proclaim that they follow the Elohim of
Israel and His Son Who He sent to be the Savior of the world.
Yahshua, Himself, told the people of His day, “Think not that I am come to
destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For
verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall
in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall
break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be
called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach
them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven,” Mt. 5:17-19.
Protestantism, even though it declares that it upholds the Ten Commandments
in one instance, proclaims that “The law is done away,” in the next
instance. When confronted with the fourth commandment concerning the Sabbath,
they state that the Sabbath has been changed from the seventh day of the week to
the first (Sunday).
Little is known or spoken concerning the land Sabbaths, and the Jubilees.
If one looks around with his eyes opened, he will see a very open and subtle
change that has come over America since the removal of prayer from the school
classrooms and the removal of the Protestant Christian faith from the
universities, colleges, schools, government offices, etc.
We even have an administration that has declared that America is no longer a
Christian, but rather a Muslim nation.
Because of atheism, the embracing of evolution, humanism, socialism, and
Islam America is quickly falling away from her Protestant Christian roots.
However, the great falling away from the truth began under the Roman Emperor
Constantine the Great upon his entrance into the corrupted remnants of the faith
that was established by Yahshua and His disciples.
Yahweh proclaimed, “At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a
release. And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth
ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his
neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called Yahweh’s release. Of a
foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother
thine hand shall release; Save when there shall be no poor among you; for Yahweh
shall greatly bless thee in the land which the Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee for
an inheritance to possess it: Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of
the Yahweh thy Elohim, to observe to do all these commandments which I command
thee this day. For Yahweh thy Elohim blesseth
thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt
not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign
over thee,” Dt. 15:1-6.
Can you imagine a world wherein these commandments were administered? Can
you imagine a world wherein all debts public and private were cancelled every
seven years? Yahweh promises great blessings for those who will obey these
He continues, “If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren
within any of thy gates in thy land which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee, thou
shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: But
thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient
for his need, in that which he wanteth. Beware that there be not a thought in
thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and
thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he
cry unto Yahweh against thee, and it be sin unto thee. Thou shalt surely give
him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because
that for this thing Yahweh thy Elohim shall bless thee in all thy works, and in
all that thou puttest thine hand unto. For the poor shall never cease out of the
land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy
brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land,” Dt. 15:7-11.
What is Yahweh saying here? Isn’t this a part of the law that says we need
to love Yahweh with all our heart, mind, and soul, and our neighbor as
ourselves? That we love our Elohim and our neighbor more than the physical
substance that Yahweh gives us? That Yahweh will greatly bless us for exhibiting
true love and compassion for our neighbor who has been impoverished? Shouldn’t
we acknowledge that all of our blessings have come from Yahweh and shouldn’t
we exhibit the love that He has shown to us by passing it on to others who have
not seemed to be as blessed? Yahweh is saying in the above verses that even if
the year of release is approaching, a person of greater substance should provide
for the needy even if they suffer the loss of the year of release!
Continuing, “And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be
sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt
let him go free from thee. And when thou sendest him out free from thee, thou
shalt not let him go away empty: Thou shalt furnish him liberally out of thy
flock, and out of thy floor, and out of thy winepress: of that wherewith Yahweh
thy Elohim hath blessed thee thou shalt give unto him. And thou shalt remember
that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt, and Yahweh thy Elohim redeemed
thee: therefore I command thee this thing to day. And it shall be, if he say
unto thee, I will not go away from thee; because he loveth thee and thine house,
because he is well with thee; Then thou shalt take an awl, and thrust it through
his ear unto the door, and he shall be thy servant for ever. And also unto thy
maidservant thou shalt do likewise. It shall not seem hard unto thee, when thou
sendest him away free from thee; for he hath been worth a double hired servant
to thee, in serving thee six years: and the Yahweh thy Elohim shall bless thee
in all that thou doest,” vv. 12-18.
What a world this would be if we would listen to our Creator and take His
words to heart!
Jonathan Cahn recently made a great stir when he published his book entitled
The Harbinger. He has realized that
America is similar to ancient Israel. (In reality, those who originally settled
in and established America were/are the descendants of the northern kingdom of
Israel.) He compares the attack against America on September 11, 2001 to the
beginning incursion against ancient Israel by the Assyrians back around 2,500
years ago. Israel was eventually destroyed by them. While both ancient Israel
and the Assyrians have disappeared from view, their descendants have continued
to exist. The Assyrian’s language was Akkadian which is a sister language to Arabic, the language spoken by those involved
in the attack on America!
He goes through a list of nine harbingers which ended with the destruction
of the kingdom of Israel, and appear to be critical warning signs to America and
a coming judgment if there is no national repentance. Interestingly, in the
spiritual significance of numbers, nine (9) is the number of judgment!
Jonathan has discovered a pattern in the count concerning the land Sabbath
and year of release (shemitah)
that has existed down through the ages even though the world has not paid
attention to it. This pattern not only has to do with agriculture, but economics
also, as in release from debt.
A news release from World News Daily (WND) Sept. 1, 2014 says, “Wall
Street analysts have pondered the mystery of what appears to be seven-year
economic cycles….the Messianic Rabbi reveals the shocking discovery that the
five great economic crashes of the last 40 years—1973, 1980, 1987, 2001,
2008—have all occurred in the Shemitah years—those [Elohim] set apart as
The fact of the matter is that September 2014—September 2015 is a
Sabbatical (Shemitah) year!
Here is the danger: Our national debt is nearing 18 trillion dollars!
However, that’s just the tip of the iceberg (Get it? Iceberg vs. Titanic?!)!
The total U. S. debt is calculated to be a little over 61.6 trillion dollars! (USDebtClock.org)
We have never experienced so much debt. The question is, What kind of
repercussions will we suffer in September of 2015? Will this bring a calamity
from which it is impossible to recover? Is America on the verge of recompense
for her sins?
Of course, a failure of America, the stock market, and the dollar will be
felt on a worldwide basis, but other nations, Russia, China, and some of the
Islamic nations have been preparing under-the-table so to speak. Preparations
are already being made to cut their economies loose from the dollar. It appears
that even Saudi Arabia is included in the deal.
What has kept the dollar so strong and a coveted worldwide currency?
President Nixon took the dollar off of the gold standard and linked it with
petroleum in a deal with Saudi Arabia back in the ‘70’s. If Saudi Arabia
pulls out of the deal, and other nations dump trillions of dollars back into the
treasury, refusing to utilize them as currency, then the ball game is over!
It is also interesting to this author that the years of release (shemitahs) are arranged in their corresponding
manner as evidenced above. This means that 2022, 2029, and 2036 will be shemitah years. What does this mean?
You can heartily disagree with this author (as many do, and will do), but
your can’t escape the reality of 2029, and 2036.
This author has suspected for some time that Yahshua’s ministry was a
seven year ministry. It is largely believed that He had a 3-1/2 year ministry,
but such is impossible for the reason that His ministry began with His cleansing
of the temple at Passover, and ended with the cleansing of the temple at
John’s evangel reveals that Yahshua was at a wedding in Cana of Galilee.
They ran out of wine so His mother turns to Him. He told her that His hour had
not yet come (Jn. 2:1-4).
Shortly afterward was the Passover and He went to Jerusalem and cleansed the
temple (Jn. 2:13-17). We all know that His final cleansing of the temple and
death took place during the Passover season (Mt. 21-26; Mk. 11-15; Lk. 19-23).
If His ministry began around 29-30, and ended 7 years later in 36-37, then
2,000 years later is 2029-2036. This author has long suspected that His heavenly
tenure would be 2,000 years because it is a multiplication of 40 x 50 = 2,000.
Both numbers are very significant in Scripture.
Now that 2029 and 2036 are linked with the shemitah
years, here is another interesting piece of the puzzle.
In 2029 an asteroid named Apophis
is scheduled to pass near the earth. If it enters a certain sector of the heaven
above the earth called a “keyhole”, it will return seven years later in 2036
to smite the earth.
The word “asteroid” means “starlike” (Webster’s
New World Dictionary). Apophis is an Egyptian name. It is
equivalent to the Hebrew Abaddon, and the Greek Apollyon, THE DESTROYER!!!
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star
fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the
key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a
smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air
were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke
locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the
earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass
of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men
which have not the seal of Elohim in their foreheads. And to them it was given
that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months:
and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And
in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to
die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts were like
unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like
gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of
women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as
it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of
chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto
scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men
five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless
pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath
his name Apollyon,” Rev. 9:1-11.
We will have to compose an article which will address the harbingers more in
detail. We do suggest that you acquire the book entitled The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. It is
quite revealing concerning the manner that he has written it. He very closely
links the events of our day with those of ancient Israel.
According to what has been revealed to this author from the Scriptures,
Jonathan is right on target. But there are so many other clues and revelations
that need to be addressed. America may not even be in existence by 2029 if the
prophesied events take place concerning the descendants of Israel and Judah.
The time to search our souls, repent, and turn to our
merciful Creator is NOW! May you be delivered from the terrors to come! J.H.

I remember doing the Halloween thing back when I was in school. It was
such a fun thing to do. We went from house to house in some kind of homemade
costume, knocked on the door and shouted “Trick or treat!” to the occupants
who almost always had some kind of candy treat, or fruit.
Of course, a group of us guys would also get together to see what kind of
mischief we could get into. I remember turning over an outhouse or two, but
that’s all I can think of at this late date in my life.
The point is that we never questioned why we were doing those things. It
was always just a fun night to look forward to.
One news service has posted this article on the internet: “There is
good news for retailers as Halloween draws closer. Americans are expected to
spend $5.8 billion on costumes and other holiday items this year. That is a jump
from last year and almost as much as was spent in 2008. The National Retail
Federation says Americans will spend an average of $66.28 on Halloween this
year. That's up from $56.31 last year. One shopper told News 14 Carolina that
Halloween is the most expensive holiday after Christmas, but that it's well
worth the money spent. "We just like the thrill of dressing up and it just
being a night of going out and having fun," said Melanie P…... The NRF also says this year more adults than
ever will be dressing up for Halloween, as 40-percent plan to sport a costume
See! Its just a night of going
out and having fun, right? And what about those costumes? So many of the girls
liked to dress up like witches, the boys like little devils, why all of the
morbid devilish ghouls, globins, eerie jack-o-lanterns, etc., etc.?
Wikipedia has this to say about Halloween,
“...also known as All
Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve,
is a yearly celebration observed
in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western
feast of All
Hallows' Day. It initiates the triduum
the time in the liturgical year
dedicated to remembering the dead,
and all the faithful departed believers.”
If it is a day to remember saints, martyrs, and all faithful departed
believers, then why are witches, devils, demons, ghouls, goblins, ghosts,
zombies, etc. associated with it? Since the Christian churches have embraced it,
where is it commanded, or revealed in the Scriptures?
Encyclopedia Britannica has this to say about it, “It long antedates Christianity.
The two chief characteristics of ancient Hallowe’en were the lighting of bonfires and the belief
that this is the one night in the year during which ghosts and witches are most
likely to wander abroad….it is directly connected with
the Druidic belief in the calling together of certain wicked souls
on Hallowe’en by Saman (Sah-win),
lord of the dead.”
(Fourteenth Edition, Vol. 11, pp. 102-103).
So Halloween observance was around long before Christianity. It has to do
with the “lord of the dead” calling together certain “wicked” souls!
We can certainly easily deduct that this observance has nothing to do at
all with Yahweh or Yahshua since Yahshua told the people of His day, “But as
touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken
unto you by Yahweh, saying, I am the Elohim of Abraham, and the Elohim of Isaac,
and the Elohim of Jacob? Yahweh is not the Elohim of the dead,
but of the living,” Mt. 22:31-32.
Who would the “lord of the dead be?” “Forasmuch then as the
children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of
the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil,”
There we have it! The one who has the power of death would be the one who
is the “lord of the dead”, that is, Satan the devil!
When Yahshua returns to the earth to establish His glorious kingdom of
peace and rest, Satan is going to be bound and cast alive into the abyss for the
period of 1,000 years. Then he must be loosed for a little season (Rev. 20:1-3).
At the end of the 1,000 years he is released, “And when the thousand
years are expired, Satan
shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out
to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and
Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of
the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and
fire came down from Yahweh out of heaven,
and devoured them. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of
fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be
tormented day and night for ever and ever,” Rev. 20:7-10.
lord of the dead calls together his wicked ones. Bonfires were lit….fire comes
down from heaven. Are you beginning to get the picture? Halloween is a picture
of the time when the lord of the dead will be released to gather his people for
his final assault on the righteous! This day should perish from your observance

Savior’s Birth - The Reason For The Season?
I remember the excitement that the Christmas season brought to me as a
little child. Santa Claus was coming and he had presents to give out. Children
are so naïve and will believe whatever their parents and the world will tell
To me, as a little child, that’s what the the season was all about.
There was this chubby little man from the north pole. He had eight tiny
reindeer. He was coming with presents to place them under our Christmas tree in
the night. When we arose the next morning, there was the proof under the tree!
Santa had come and delivered our gifts! Oh how I loved that little old man!
I think I was five or six years old when I found out that there was no
such thing as Santa Claus. He was, in fact, our parents. I was very
disappointed, to say the least, but still never questioned the Savior’s birth
because I could read it right there in the pages of the Bible!
Well…., the Scriptures are right about the Savior’s birth, but the
timing of the observance by the world is wrong. Frankly, there are commands for
us to observe in the Scriptures, but we never observe them. The Christian world
observes a Savior’s birth, but there is no command to do so.
The fact of the matter is that Christmas was observed as the birthday of
a false savior long before the true
Savior was born. It was the birthday of the world’s sun god named Mithras,
Osiris, Bel, Apollos, etc.
So what!? You might say!? The
TRUTH is that there is no Santa Claus, the Savior’s birthday is not Christmas
eve, December 25th is not His birthday, but the churches (priesthood),
politicians (leaders, rulers, and kings), and merchants love it.
Children can become so excited about a lie. I know. I’ve been there,
done that. The world gets so excited about the lie of Christmas. But it was a
lie that originally brought death on all of mankind (Adamkind). (Gen. 3; Ro.
Why can’t we become as excited, or more excited about the truth as we
do about a lie? Why is it that when we discover at a very young age that there
is no Santa Claus, we are deeply disappointed, but not excited about the truth
that we have just discovered? Why don’t we begin to check out the rest of the
Personally, I continued to believe the lie about Christmas, as well as
many other lies, such as Sunday worship, until I was a young man and had my own
first child. My wife and I were so excited for that child to be able to observe
her first Christmas, which we did observe it, but by the time of Easter, I had
discovered the truth about so many of the falsehoods, and it changed our lives
forever! That is what truth is supposed to do to and for us. It must change our
Paul warns, “For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who
now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that
Wicked be revealed, whom the Sovereign shall consume with the spirit of his
mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose
coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the
love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause Yahweh
shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness,” 2 Thes. 2:7-12.
Do you get that? Our hearts
must be set on the truth! We must be excited for the truth! “NO LIE IS OF THE
TRUTH!” 1 Jn. 2:21. We must learn to hate lies and love the truth!
Paul reveals in the above verses that there is a “mystery of
iniquity.” Check the word “iniquity” out in the dictionaries, lexicons,
etc. and you will discover that “iniquity” has to do with wickedness,
unrighteousness, lawlessness. Search a little deeper and you will find that it
means “violation of law”, specifically the Jewish law! (See Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance
#G458, & #G459)
But isn’t that law done away? This is another lie that is foisted upon
the believers and followers of the false messiah (Anti-Christ) named Jesus.
I say false messiah because Jesus is not the true name of the Messiah.
The name of the true Messiah is Yahshua. He
kept the laws and commandments of Yahweh and taught them. Take a look at Matthew
Mystery Babylon is the perpetrator of the “mystery of iniquity.” John
wrote, “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and
talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment
of the great
whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed
fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine
of her fornication. So
he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of
names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the
woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and
precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations
and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF
HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken
with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yahshua: and
when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration,” Rev. 17:1-6.
Here are the perpetrators of the mystery of iniquity. It has to do with
Babylon, the kings (rulers) of the earth, and the inhabitants of the earth who
do not love the truth.
Furthermore, if you turn to Revelation 18:3 the merchants are included in
this mystery of iniquity/lies. If you go to Jeremiah 23, you will discover that
the priests and false prophets are involved with this mystery of iniquity/lies.
Not only does John write that “No lie is of the truth,” but Yahshua
told the Samaritan woman at the well that Yahweh is spirit and those who worship
Him MUST worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
He will not accept your worship if you
are worshipping Him in a lie. Yahshua said so! That means that we should gauge
the manner in which we seek to worship Him in accordance with His own word.
Don’t take King James’ word for the truth. He and his cohorts may have had
the KJV translated from the Hebrew and Greek, but remember that the kings are in
bed with the harlot!
The truth of the matter is that the commanded day of worship is the
seventh day Sabbath, not the first day of the week called Sunday. The annual
feasts outlined in Leviticus chapter 23 and elsewhere are the annual holy days
that should be observed, not man-made holidays. The Creator’s name isn’t
God, nor the Lord. The Savior’s name is not Jesus. Neither is the law done
The Savior’s birthday was never December 25th! He was either born in
the spring, or the fall, but not in the dead of winter, and especially not on
the birthday of all of the false pagan saviors of the world that men have
adhered to and adored for millennia.
The answer to the question which is the title of this article is NO!
Absolutely NOT! The Savior’s birth is not the reason for the season! You have
been deceived by the Babylonian Mystery Harlot, the kings of the earth, the
merchants, the priests, and false prophets if you think that such is the case.
However, there is a god of this
world(2 Cor. 4:4) who loves for you to worship him in this manner. He is the one
who originally deceived the woman, and continues to deceive the whole world
today (Rev. 12:9).
Listen! Turning to the truth and embracing it leaving error behind
isn’t easy in this present evil world. The pressure is to go with the flow. Be
a part of the crowd. We can even feel safe in large numbers of people.
But the end of the age has come upon us. Yahshua said that the many go
the broad easy way to destruction. His people will be a “little flock.”
Review the warning again in 2 Thessalonians 2. The many, the great crowds
are rushing headlong over the cliff of judgment and damnation.
Repent! Turn your life around! Learn to hate the lies and love the truth.
You will find a peace, faith, hope, love, joy, and confidence that you never had
before. Sure, there will be a struggle, but your eyes, ears, and heart will be
opened to some of the most awesome things!
Lies kill, but “The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a
lying tongue is but for a moment,” Prov. 12:19.
