OUR COVER: This picture was sent to us along with the first article concerning the death of love. Dr. Makow has written an excellent article that describes the death of love. A young bride such as this one should be saving herself for her husband. She should also be blessed with a good husband who would love and cherish her all the days of their lives. Sadly, the world has lost the ability to truly love, but we do look forward to the day that Yahshua will return and set all things in perfect order.
FROM THE EDITOR
PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!
I wanted to get a jump start in this magazine because I know the reaction
that we will receive from certain people due to the first article that we have
posted in this magazine. We already receive negative input from some when we
slip up and overlook certain words in the Scriptures. We do utilize the King
James Version when we quote Scriptures. We have the KJV on our computers, of
course, and when we do quote Scriptures we simply cut and paste. Once pasted
into the article we have to go back and make the necessary changes of certain
words such as changing “the Lord” to Yahweh, God to Elohim, Jesus to Yahshua,
Christ to the Messiah, etc., etc. However, we are human and we slip up every now
and then. Please don’t think that we approve of these terms. We don’t. If we
did, then we wouldn’t go about changing them.
The first article that we have
in this particular magazine, however, does utilize the word “God” and we
chose not to change it since the man who wrote the article doesn’t necessarily
understand about the paganism of these words. At least, we have never seen where
he understands that such is the case. But the article is a very appropriate one
concerning the death of true love in today’s world. We sought his permission
to run the article and he graciously gave his approval.
Reading his article stirred me
to write the second article entitled The Loss of
Love. It may not have turned out exactly as I first imagined
it, but I trust that Yahweh was guiding my mind to write that article. We do
live in a world that is so very critically short on true love. The reason for
this is, as Dr. Makow pointed out, due to a subtle and skillful manipulation by
certain elements in our society, and let’s also don’t forget the dark forces
of the spirit world.
If people would only turn to
their Creator, they would find the true path to love because He is love. Of
course, we are to turn to Yahweh through Yahshua the Messiah. He is the door and
the way to the very throne of the whole creation. Yahweh has revealed His love
for us through Him. One day Yahweh is going to reveal Himself to all of mankind.
That will be a most joyous occasion. At that time every knee will bow before Him
and all will be worshipping Him and rejoicing before His throne for the
marvelous mercy that He will reveal toward His people.
Brethren, there is a most
marvelous and fantastic world that is coming. It is our prayer and hope that we
will all be able to be to witness to the awesome wonders that are in store in
the future for Yahweh’s creation. We can’t even begin to understand all of
the great things that will be taking place forever and ever, but we do know that
it will be so awesome! May that day come soon!
& The Death of Love
women today are losing the ability to love, and how men must adjust.
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
see our editorial for comments concerning this article.
If a young woman today said she was saving her virginity for her husband,
she'd be considered hopelessly old fashioned. She'd be treated with disdain, as
polite society treated a whore 100 years ago.
This is a measure of the triumph of Satanism, the "religion" of
the modern world, which lurks behind secularism. Not coincidentally, virgins
also had to hide their purity in Bolshevik Russia.
The defining characteristic of civilization is the consecration of sex to
marriage, or at the very least, love and courtship. Marriage and family are the
red blood cells of a healthy society and the basis for procreation.
Satanists understand this very well. That's why they used "sexual
liberation," to undermine humanity. As Giuseppe Mazzini said, "we corrupt in order
They are like the devil. Corruption is a form of conquest. Enslavement takes
the form of addiction, to sex or drugs or alcohol.
Any animal can have anonymous sex. It is human to form a permanent loving
bond and raise children properly. This is why Satanists use free love to attack
FREE LOVE IS AN OXYMORON
The more sexual partners a young woman has, the less she is able to love a
man. A woman's love must be exclusive. It must be focused on her husband, the
father of her children. She must preserve her soul for him. That's what her body
For a woman, sex is an act of self-sacrifice and surrender. By
definition, it requires trust, i.e. love and
devotion to one man.
When she has casual sex, inevitably she is disappointed and feels used. She
starts to hate men and falls victim to feminism and lesbianism.
When men were required to get married in order to have sex, women were
courted and loved. Later, they were honored for their contributions as wife and
mother. Far from protecting "women's rights," feminism has left women
twisting in the wind.
The separation of sex from marriage, i.e. "sexual liberation," is
one of the principle ways satanism has killed love.
Wanton sex has become a substitute for love. Young women now market
themselves as sex partners, not wives and mothers. Men are also trained to seek
"Homosexual rights" are designed to make heterosexuals behave like
homosexuals. Very few homosexuals marry. Very few have children. This is the
model the elite envisages for mankind.
The Illuminati want us to be isolated, alienated and tractable.
A woman who is saving herself
for marriage should be commended. She is resisting social pressure ( i.e. social
engineering) and obeying her instincts instead.
Through the mass media, the Illuminati brainwashes us to
think romantic love and sex are a universal panacea that can replace religion
How many movies and songs are based on the assumption that some perfect
person is going to give us our self? Woody Allen is 75 and he's still chasing
this romantic chimera in his movies. This is arrested development.
People aren't meant to be loved as though they were perfect. No one is. Only
God is perfect and that is where our love should be directed. As you know, I
define God in terms of spiritual ideals such as truth, justice, goodness and
Especially now when fewer men and women are capable of love, we need to
focus on loving God and, especially, on God's
love for us.
The Illuminati have done a good job of discrediting God. He is the positive
force behind Creation. He represents the inherent moral and natural design. By
adhering to this design, we will be healthy and happy.
In olden times, men chose women for their worth as helpmates. Can she cook?
Milk cows? Make clothes? They had no illusions about "soul mates." Men
need to look for women who are gentle and accommodating, who have skills,
character, personality and make good mothers.
Avoid promiscuous women, feminists and women who are alienated from their
fathers. Avoid bean counters (women who want everything to be
We need to take the stardust out of our eyes and realize that the importance
of sex has been grossly exaggerated in order to control us.
Men are attracted to almost all fertile women. So what? That's nature's way
of making sure we procreate. We don't need to be controlled by that.
marriage, we are looking for a life-long companion. Look at old TV shows to see
the traditional picture of marriage. It's not heaven. Lucille Ball and Desi
Arnez; Ralph and Alice Kramden were always comically at odds. It never gets
Marriage is a mutual security pact. A woman accepts her husband's leadership
in return for his protection and love. Men want power; women want love. Marriage
is the exchange of the two.
Your spouse is nothing like you. There's going to be disagreements. It's not
necessary to think alike or feel love all the time. Many women are moody.
Just keep your bargain. Be loyal. Don't say things that will upset her. Play
your part. And over time, with mutual trust, a strong bond grows.
And if you can't find a suitable companion, you may be in luck. Thoreau, a bachelor, said, "I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude."
We truly appreciate Henry
Makov’s article entitled Promiscuity and the Death of Love. His observations
are “right-on” with those of our own. He is right concerning his accusations
of the Satanists. After all, it was the interruption of the glorious peace of
the Garden of Eden by the serpent who is eventually revealed as the great red
dragon, that old serpent called the Devil and Satan who has deceived the whole
world (Rev. 12:3, 9), that has brought about the loss of the ability of mankind
The serpent was a deceiver and
liar from the beginning, for when he entered into the garden, he met with the
woman, contradicted Yahweh’s warning, confused her causing her to begin to
doubt and disbelieve, which led her to partake of the forbidden fruit; gave it
to her husband who also ate of it, and presto, access to the Garden of Eden was
Yahweh had just restored the
earth from a state of darkness and destruction to that which
was pronounced “very good.” (Gen. 1:31). The English word “very”
just doesn’t accurately convey the Hebrew word that it is translated from. The
Hebrew word is meod,
and conveys the idea of vehemence! Vehemence is defined as “having or
characterized by intense feeling or strong passion; fervent, impassioned, etc. (Webster’s New World Dictionary)
So the earth was intensely, passionately, fervently good! If we were able to see
it today, it would literally take our breath away because it was so awesomely
beautiful! We have never seen, nor experienced such a thing.
The first man and woman were
able to see, experience, and live in such a place, but they failed to live up to
their side of the bargain (covenant) and were cast out. Since that time, men and
women have tried to recapture the awesome, breath-taking, beauty of that
original creation, but can never duplicate it.
MORTALITY AND CORRUPTION
Yahweh had warned that if they
ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, “thou shalt surely die.”
(Gen. 2:17) Again, the Hebrew conveys the idea of “dying, thou shalt die.”
In other words, the death process would begin in the day that they partook of
that fruit, they would begin to corrupt until some day in the future, they would
die. Man had become mortal and corruptible (1 Cor. 15:53).
We must come to understand
ourselves. We are the descendants of the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. They
had the most amazing life and potential! They had a covenant with Yahweh wherein
they could live in that awesome, breath-taking environment, and eat of every
tree there, including the tree of life. All they had to do was obey the rules of
the covenant, which included dressing and keeping (guarding) the Garden of Eden.
When they reached out their
hand, taking of the forbidden fruit, the covenant was broken. Mortality and
corruption entered not only into them, but all of their progeny, their
posterity, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by
sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the
law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not
sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him
that was to come,” Ro. 5:12-14.
We, like our first parents,
Adam and Eve, are full of mortality, and corruption. They, in effect, committed
suicide, destroying an amazing and awesome life and potential. We, their
children, do the same thing! We build, only to destroy. Yahweh cursed the earth
because of Adam’s transgression so that it would not bring forth its fullness,
“cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the
days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and
thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat
bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust
thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return,” Gen. 3:17-19.
We have a tendency to pierce
ourselves with many thorns in life because of various fleshly pursuits that seem
to be pleasurable, but end up causing great pain, grief, sadness, and sorrow.
Take smoking, for instance. This author smoked back in his youth for about six
or seven years. Smoking is a pleasurable sensation. The reality is that smoke
and nicotine are addictive, and destructive. Most people are too weak-willed to
give it up once the addiction has taken hold. The same goes for drugs, alcohol,
and so many other things. Food can even be addictive and the flesh is weak. Sex
can be addictive. I think it is safe to say that just about anything can be
addictive to certain people. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. The
strengths are good, but the weaknesses are the things that do us in. That is
because the flesh is mortal and corruptible.
We are born into this world as
innocents, but the potential for evil is in us from the start. Of course, every
newborn child is self-centered. After all, they were brought into this world
knowing nothing. They must be taught everything that they learn. Children will
be especially bonded to their parents. Their parents are their world. A child is
helpless and needs someone to care for him/her. Their parents are their first
love! But too many parents destroy that love. How? Through their own pursuits
and desires. Too many parents, even though they may not mean to, neglect their
children. This neglect destroys love.
Abandonment is another process
that destroys love. Separation, divorce, remarriage, etc. causes so many
problems. It destroys the sense of family, togetherness, loyalty, belonging,
etc. The percentage of broken homes and families in our society is overwhelming.
The Apostle Paul wrote to
Timothy, “…they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into
many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after,
they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many
sorrows,” 1 Tim. 6:9-10.
We all would love the good life
with a beautiful home, furnishings, property (-ies), transportation, resorts,
vacations, plenty of money in the bank account (s), savings, etc. so we could
have whatever our hearts, our flesh desires.
There is, of course, the
concept called “The American Dream,” which is presented as, “The American Dream, sometimes in the phrase
"Chasing the American Dream," is a national ethos of the United States
in which freedom includes a promise of the possibility of prosperity and
success. In the American Dream, first expressed by James Truslow Adams
in 1931, "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with
opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class
or circumstances of birth. The idea of the American Dream is rooted in the United States Declaration of
Independence which proclaims that "all men are
created equal" and that they are "endowed by their Creator with
certain inalienable Rights" including "Life, Liberty and the pursuit
of Happiness." (Wikipedia)
So many people around the world
have believed in this concept that they have picked and moved to America so they
can live this dream. Do you get that? It is nothing more than a DREAM! But many
are willing to risk their lives in order to cash in on this dream, and many lose
their lives trying to get to America.
We are now hearing things that
we never heard before, such as, The End of America! Those living here in America
are finding that their dreams that they have been living are quickly being
eroded away. Why? How? Because of the pursuit of riches, because of the love of
money. There are so many fraudulent schemes going on in this country that it
absolutely makes a person sick to his stomach.
Look at the fraudulent schemes
of our leaders alone! I remember reading in our history books and being taught
about the fraudulent schemes that were perpetrated upon this country by the big
rich men who were in league with our leaders. Nothing has changed. The same
schemes are still going on today, and have indebted our nation to the tune of
over 14 trillion dollars. The pursuit of riches is in the process of destroying
everything that we hold dear, and our values also.
The pursuit of riches has
caused our people to forsake real values, true morality, steadfast principles.
Now, we are coming to the point of questioning what marriage is, what family is.
We can’t even understand what truth is, and the problem is that people don’t
care for truth anyway. Our nation has corrupted from its original intent and
purity, if there was such a thing anyway. What was the statement of Giuseppe
Mazzini? He said, "we corrupt in order to conquer." Now we are
learning the true tactics of the one called the devil and Satan!
Yahshua cautioned His
disciples, “…because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax
cold,” Mt. 24:12.
What is iniquity? Iniquity is
defined as; illegality, i.e. violation of law or (genitive case) wickedness. (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance)
It is sometimes translated as “transgression of law.”
The Apostle John defines sin as
transgression of the law, “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the
law: for sin is the transgression of the law,”
1 Jn. 3:4.
The Greek word for law is anomia. It comes from the Greek root word anomos, which is defined as; lawless, i.e.
(negatively) not subject to (the Jewish) law;
(by implication, a Gentile), or (positively) wicked. (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance)
The Jewish law is not really a
Jewish law, it is Yahweh’s law. It is His covenant law! When He made His
covenant with Israel, He presented His law from Mt. Sinai, and Israel agreed to
do all that Yahweh had commanded.
It is sin, transgression of the
law, that brings about the destruction of, that brings about the loss of love.
Basically, the first five commandments describe to us how we are to love our
Creator with all of our heart. Yes, the fifth commandment has to do with
honoring our parents, but Yahweh is our True Father, so that commandment also
applies to Him. The last five commandments teach us how to love our neighbor
equal to ourselves.
This is what Yahshua declared
when a man asked Him which is the great commandment in the law? “Yahshua said
unto him, Thou shalt love Yahweh thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the
second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two
commandments hang all the law and the prophets,” Mt. 22:37-40. He was
summarizing the ten commandments.
How can true love abound when
the people are taught that the law is done away? If there is no law, then there
is no stability.
We know and understand that the
whole creation exists because of law. The laws of physics, chemistry, biology,
aerodynamics, thermodynamics, etc. exist to bring about stability. For instance,
we understand that the law of gravity is a wonderful law. Because of it, we are
held firmly on the earth. But if we jump or fall from a twenty story building,
the law requires a penalty to be paid.
Man understands that there must
be laws, guidelines whereby we live or there will be nothing but anarchy. Every
nation, state, county, province, and city has laws to deal with stability in an
attempt to prevent lawless anarchy. When the laws are broken, penalties are
But when it is declared that
Yahweh’s law is done away, which is a spiritual law, there will be nothing but
spiritual lawless anarchy, which is the case.
LOVE WAXING COLD
Yahshua’s prophecy about love
waxing cold because of the abounding of lawlessness (iniquity) is, of course,
right on. Think about how cold our love has become when a person/persons choose
to abort their own offspring!
In nature, the natural world,
there is no love stronger than the love that a female has for her offspring. We
see this in animals, but even for men and women in previous generations,
abortion was absolutely forbidden, as was also homosexuality, and lesbianism.
In times past, if the act of
fornication brought about a pregnancy, then the couple married in order to give
the child a name, and a family. There was a sense of responsibility, duty, and
love for one’s offspring. To terminate the life of a fetus was murder and
Today’s statistics are
frightening! I received these statistics from Abort73.com.:
abortion ratios by state ranged from a low of 43 abortions per 1,000 live births
in Idaho to a high of 770 abortions per 1,000 live births in NYC.
abortion rate in the United States was higher than recent rates reported for
Canada and Western European countries and lower than rates reported for China,
Cuba, the majority of Eastern European countries, and certain Newly Independent
States of the former Soviet Union (CDC).
half of pregnancies among American women are unintended; about 4 in 10 of these
are terminated by abortion. Twenty-two percent of all U.S. pregnancies end in
least 80% of all abortions are performed on unmarried women (CDC).
abortion ratio for unmarried women is 510 abortions for every 1,000 live births.
For married women it is 61 abortions for every 1,000 live births (CDC).
of women who have abortions had at least one previous abortion (AGI).
women are more than 4.8 times more likely than non-Hispanic white women to have
an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2.7 times as likely (AGI).
of women obtaining abortions identify themselves as Protestant, and 27% identify
themselves as Catholic (AGI).
If we look at the above
statistics we can determine certain factors that should alert and alarm us.
Abortion is greater in a place like New York City. Therefore, the big city
environment promotes the greater corruption and control. Love is being destroyed
at a far greater pace.
Abortion is greater in Communist
countries. Therefore, we can determine that the socialist, Communist spirit
promotes the greater corruption and control. Love is being destroyed in that
system at a far greater pace.
Abortion is greater in
unmarried women. Therefore, we can determine that the unmarried state brings in
greater corruption, control, and a far greater pace in the destruction of love.
Understand this, the wages of
sin is death (Ro. 6:23, first part). People partaking in promiscuous sex,
fornication, adultery are committing sin and earning the wage of death for those
sins. But through abortion the ones who are paying for the initial wage of death
are the unborn!
As stated in Henry Makov’s
article, promiscuous sex destroys the real ability to love. As in Yahshua’s
words, because iniquity (lawlessness) abounds, the love of many is waxing cold.
Abortion is outright proof of these statements!
What can we do to stop this
downward spiral of the destruction of love? The Apostle Peter declares,
“Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Yahshua the Messiah
for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,”
To repent means to stop
sinning. To stop sinning means to stop breaking Yahweh’s spiritual law.
We must go to the only One Who
truly knows real love. That is our wondrous Creator and Heavenly Father Yahweh!
Paul writes, “…Yahweh commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were
yet sinners, the Messiah died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his
blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies,
we were reconciled to Yahweh by the death of his Son, much more, being
reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in
Yahweh through our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, by whom we have now received
the atonement.” Ro. 5:8-11.
This great love was spoken of
and exhibited by the Father, and His only begotten Son Yahshua Who declared,
“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate
thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and
persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven:
for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on
the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have
ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only,
what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore
perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect,” Mt. 5:43-48.
John writes, “…Yahweh so
loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in
him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” Jn. 3:16.
He also wrote, “He that
loveth not knoweth not Yahweh; for Yahweh is love,” 1 Jn. 4:8.
If we are able to exhibit this
love, we must go to the source of that love, understanding ourselves and our own
failings and inability, confessing our sins so we can find the mercy and grace
to help in time of need (Heb. 4:16).
John also writes, “Whosoever
believeth that Yahshua is the Messiah is born of Elohim: and every one that
loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know
that we love the children of Elohim, when we love
Yahweh, and keep his commandments,” 1 Jn. 5:1-2.
This is the real love that this
evil corrupt world is keeping from you. But in the final analysis we can say
that if we depend on man to maintain love it will be corrupted and destroyed,
which is taking place in the world. But praise be to Yahweh who understands,
has, and exhibits true love, it will never be destroyed, but rather endure
forever, because Yahweh is love; Yahweh is eternal; HalleluYah!!!!!!!
