The bible does not teach a flat earth. Those who think it does are misinterpreting some passages.

I had this dream several years ago, and would like input and thoughts on it:

The church was as the Roman army laying siege to a strong fortress garrisoned with evil spirits. Inside thousands of people here held captive. Our job was to take the fortress and free the prisoners. However the attacking army was very poorly organized. Haphazard groups of soldiers waked up to the wall and attempted to use scaling ladders. Others simply stared up at the wall wondering what to do. We climbed the ladders attempting an assault on the fortress. Demons were manning the wall, they were pitch black creatures. Every time we climbed the ladders a sword would be stuck into the soldier at the top. The sword didn't kill but it caused extreme despair and depression. It caused the struck person to climb back down the ladder and just give up the attack. I myself was struck, felt the depression and despair, but recovered a little later. In the rear of our lines I noticed several catapults but they were sitting being unused. Other small groups kept discussing plans to use the catapults then attack the fortress in a more cohesive manner. (I seem to remember discussing catapults with fellow soldiers, but not commanders.) I got the distinct impression the commanders did not want us to use the catapults, that there was no need to use them. We did not plan to ask permission to use the catapults. We were planning ways just use them without asking any of our unit leaders, or even letting them know of our plans to use them. Then the dream ended.

Also here is a vision I had a few months ago:

A vision popped into my head regarding the potential coming pizzagate arrests of high level elites. They are on a huge cruise ship partying it up and they are taking countermeasures to protect their ship, however a stealth attack is coming in the form of a submarine. The submarine has the cruise ship on sonar and possibly already has a firing solution set up for a torpedo salvo. Now is the time for people on the cruise ship to get off, either at port or by lifeboat. If others won't let them off, then they should sneak off, even in the middle of the night. One the torpedoes hit it will be too late to get off the ship.

I did some research, and am coming to the conclusion that I John 5:7 "For there are three who bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Spirit, and these three are one", DOES belong in the bible, and WAS in the original manuscripts. It is missing from many ancient Greek manuscripts from about 300 - 400 A.D. There is a reason for that. My research shows that parts of Europe (The Byzantine Empire) was very heavily influenced by Arian heretics at that time, and that they removed that verse simply because it went against their theology from their copies of Greek texts. Remember in the East they spoke Greek in churches, and never had to translate the New Testament for a long time like in the Western Church. Arians believed that Jesus was a created being and therefore they denied the Trinity. That verse goes against their theology, so they removed it. God is not pleased when people remove verses from the bible because they go against your beliefs. The correct thing to do in that situation is instead repent and change YOUR beliefs, instead of trying to change what the bible says.

In Greek the grammar is mismatched if you remove this verse. It is in the Latin Vulgate, and Jerome commented on how this verse was being removed by the Arians.

I just find it interesting that the texts used for many modern bibles are missing verses and fragments that support the deity of Christ, the blood of Christ for atonement, the Trinity, even the virgin birth is muddied somewhat. I find it hard to believe that they weren't removed by scribal errors or deliberate action by people throughout church history who didn't WANT to believe those doctrines, and didn't want them in the bible. Then they could say see see see here is what the bible says....and use it to bully you when you say well wait a minute, what about what might have been in there originally.

Case in point, this is more of a translation issue and which texts are used, but the KJV uses the word fornication to indicate sexual sin, whereas many modern translations say "sexual immorality". I prefer the word "fornication" because it is more precise to what it means, and it is defined by the bible itself to mean all sexual sins which are listed. It would include incest, animals, sex between men, taking another man's wife or betrothed, and temple prostitution. The Greek Septuagint uses the word "pornea", out of which we get the English word fornication, which in 1611 meant roughly the same thing, but the definition should really be taken by how the bible defines it in a its larger context. Note that many biblical heroes kept concubines (women they were NOT married to) and the bible NEVER defines that as a sin. "Sexual immorality" COULD be understood in the same context when people read modern bibles, but the thing is often it is ingrained in modern culture to think of "sexual immorality" as mainly unmarried sex, which takes away from the original meanings of "pornea" and even "fornication" when taken its biblical context. Many are tempted to take the term "sexual immorality" and ATTACH any meaning they want to it, sometimes accurate, sometimes not. The Hebrew word for "pornea" has a similar meaning to the word in Greek. I also recently found out that when God tells ancient Hebrews in the laws not to be prostitutes in the Law, THAT Hebrew word is SPECIFIC to temple prostitution. Ancient Hebrew has other words for secular prostitution which is not used in any of those passages. That is interesting.

I believe demons are not fallen angels. I believe they are the spirits of the dead giants from the ancient world, or Nephilim, or Raphaim. Fallen angels are a different class of creature, more powerful and more dangerous, to be dealt with by asking God to rebuke them, whereas demons, we may rebuke directly using the Lord's Name and authority. Demons are actually part angel because the giants were part angel and part human. If you were to ask any 1st century Jew what are demons, he would say oh that is easy, spirits of the dead giants, it was assumed in the ancient world that was true. That belief started to change with Augustine, he was the first to introduce the "sons of Seth" theory of Genesis 6. Augustine was a genius and a spiritual giant, but had weak spots like any human being.

Because of what the bible says about Christ paying for our sins at the cross, and all humans are already born fallen, and committing ANY sin EVER keeps us from being able to earn our way into heaven, I DO believe we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I do realize that some Christians debate that once saved, they wonder if one can lose it or not. I tend to think one cannot lose their salvation for ANYTHING, but I understand the debate, even based on certain interpretations of certain passages in the bible. Even though I think Once Saved, Always Saved is OBJECTIVELY true, I do NOT believe you need to believe THAT doctrine in order to truly GET SAVED. I do believe salvation is obtained by faith in Jesus Christ, which in Greek means to "trust in, to adhere to, to rely upon." If you have that kind of faith in Jesus, your spirit is regenerated, you receive the indwelling Holy Spirit, and you are TRULY SAVED.

Part of the debate on losing salvation is either arguing from free will that one can reject Christ at a later date after first having faith in Him, or some really serious sin that kills your faith. I did read in some Catholic literature a long time ago that mortal sin "causes us to DESERVE hell." I STRONGLY disagree with that wording, if one could lose their salvation by some serious sin, it is because it kills your faith, NOT because you offended God to where He revokes your salvation because the sin is too big. ALL SIN causes us to deserve hell. ALL SIN, big OR small, therefore to get into heaven we MUST have God's grace covering us. YOU COULD earn salvation if YOU lived a perfect life and NEVER EVER commit even one SMALL sin, but since ALL have sinned other than infants and small children, this isn't going to cut it. There are some bible verses that indicate that once one has faith in Jesus they have passed from death into life, and that they will never face judgement. This argues for once saved always saved, and also that "warning verses" on certain sins causing people to not inherit eternal life do not apply to believers, but unbelievers showing that without Christ, none of them will be saved because of committing the sins on those lists. In Hebrews it says that faith is COUNTED as righteousness, it is credited to people with faith because their sin makes them imperfect. All the great heroes of the bible committed sins, some great sins, but all of them trusted in the Lord as well, so God's grace covered their sins.

I am 33. My father belonged to a branch of the Baptist church. He married my mother and forced her to give him 12 children. He threatened her with a gun if she tried to leave or refuse him sex. They had no car, he biked to his job in the city. He had his brother "watch" her when he left. She homeschooled my siblings and I as best she could. When I wa 16 I ran away. I was so uncomfortable talking to strangers that I was unable to go into the DMV to learn about driving exams let alone actually get a license. I lived under bridges til I was 21. I decided I wanted to try to join the military. So I went back and got a license after months of hard work. When I went in for recruitment I was unable to piss in front of anyone for a urine test due to being so cut off from social interactions growing up. I was turned away. 7 years ago I got a job at a factory and moved into a studio apartment down the street.I took advantage of the internet and learned where a few of my siblings ended up. Most were still in the convent. 2 were in prison. As far as I know I'm the only one with any semblance of normality in their life. I try talking to people at work but its honestly terrifying. I keep thinking about meeting this girl I've been talking to online but the idea.of having a conversation in person sounds like the worst form of torture imaginable. I hate God. I hate the man who came up with him. I hate that my life was completely ruined from the get go all because my mother and father based their life around and imaginary super being. Not a day goes by that I wish I could be normal.

Many are leaving the churches in a mass exodus, because so many of the faithful are SICK AND TIRED of the compromise and even apostasy inside the churches. God is parting the Red Sea, and his people are crossing on dry land to escape the current wicked system. Whenever church leadership is happy with the 501c3 system and not trying to get out from under it, it is a sign to GET OUT, ESCAPE ESCAPE ESCAPE. After watching so many YouTube videos on the Nephilim, with Mark Taylor proclaiming prophecies on Trump, where people talk about the free grace movement, where people talk about deep bible studies, where people talk about apocryphal writings not necessarily as fully inspired, but how they fit in with what the bible teaches, where people talk about the early church Fathers, pointing out the good and bad with what they taught with honesty, with all of that, very often the standard church sermons BORE ME TO DEATH. WHY SHOULD I GO? I fellowship with other believers outside of church services. THERE IS NO MAGIC about attending a church buildings on SUNDAY MORNING!!! WHAT SPECIAL POWER comes from SUNDAY MORNING. DOES GOD NEED US TO GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY MORNING??????????? Last night I read scriptures with a friend at his house. As far as Jesus is concerned that is church. Small house churches and bible studies that meet on Tue, Wed, Thurs are GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD TO BLESS HIS PEOPLE, what do we need Sunday Morning for, just stay home, watch a YouTube video with way more depth than many pastors preach about, on subjects pastors are too COWARDLY to talk about. AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am going to discuss the subject of infant baptism here and some other related teachings some churches have on how one is saved. For years I had been against infant baptism, but now I am not so sure since a saw a video of a brilliant bible scholar quote some New Testament passages comparing baptism to circumcision. What I do NOT believe is that infant baptism spiritually regenerates the child. The claim of some is that the faith of the child's sponsors are on the child's behalf and therefore regenerates the child and saves it during baptism. This is not biblical anywhere. Sponsors can legitimately pray the child will have faith as it grows older, but the child is not immediately regenerated. What I have a big problem with is the way some churches make people think they are regenerated by infant baptism, and thus can lose their salvation just by avoiding serious sins such as murder, big theft, adultery etc.....so therefore people think they don't need a living faith in Christ, and think as they grow up in the church their salvation is secure just by avoiding the big sins. This is a pretty good way to end up in hell. Many churches DO teach that children that were baptized should be taught faith as they grow up. This is a good way to ensure that they are TRULY saved. Here is the thing however, often many churches DEFINE faith as mental assent that a list of doctrines are true. This will not save. In the New Testament Greek every time it talks about having faith in Christ or believing in Him, it is much more than mental assent, it literally means "to trust in, to rely upon, to adhere to". So then therefore the kind of faith that saves is to TRUST in Christ, not merely believe He exists or mental assent to a list of doctrines about Him or other things of God. If people trust Christ then they are truly saved and spiritually regenerated. Whether or not churches practice infant baptism, they MUST teach people that faith in Christ MEANS to TRUST in Christ, if not they are risking leaving large numbers in their congregations unregenerated and in an unsaved state, no matter how many sins they avoid, big or small, or how many good works they do, or how often they attend church. If churches teach people to trust Christ for salvation the infant baptism won't get in the way of people being saved, but if people have false beliefs about infant baptism it make them wonder WHY they need to trust Christ if they think they are already saved.

We are in an age where many churches indeed need to repent. There is a prophesy that if they do not God is going to start causing the assemblies to break apart and even close down and have to find other means of assembling in more godly conditions.

Yes this is true -- They where innocent until you people deprived them of their right to grow up and experience life . Poor kids.... no no...I love my babies...oh my god...I feel so bad for them !! Two years later they come home from school and find you dead on the couch with a needle in your arm. it's not fair to the child that some women get to be mothers , and don't deserve to be and some that would be wonderful mothers don't get to be . I think a loving family that would give the child unconditional love and supply her needs would be far better than being placed with me, but at least with me she would still be taken care of. might have a tongue up her butt crack once or twice a week but at least she'd be taken care of.

Tonight God gave me a word that a church being 501c3 is enough to get out of it and never return, unless they are repenting of it and excited that Trump is pushing to overhaul that system. Trump already (inspired by God) signed away some parts of 501c3 that are controlled by executive order and not Congress. We should pray he is handed legislation to sign bills fully repealing 501c3. It is God's will. Godly churches seek to get out from under 501c3 and to see the laws on it change, apostate churches love the 501c3 system. If you are in a church that loves the 501c3 system, get out. It is the ONLY reason you need to leave them. AMEN!!!

Several years ago I received a very powerful prophetic sign from God regarding human women. I had long thought that any sexual attraction to women was a sin. Therefore to fill in the gap I attempted to see if female angels could come to me for relief. One day I was very heavily tempted to call them down, but later that day I was out driving I suddenly noticed that car after car after car behind me, in front of me, and traffic on the opposite lane, all had the most gorgeous women driving, I even saw a few pretty ladies walking or jogging on the sidewalk. This continued for several miles of my drive. Then the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said to focus on the human women, focus on the human women, focus on the human women. Later I found out two HUGE truths from the bible that blew me away, and showed me how RIGHT this sign was and that it was prophetic truly of God, and not some deception. First of all, I found out that the lust talked about in Matt 5:27-28 is referring to married or betrothed (engaged) women, and not any woman. In Greek they use the same word for woman or wife (gune), and which is being talked about is determine by the context the word is used in a Greek sentence. In Matt the context is adultery, and biblically if the woman is not married or betrothed, then it is not adultery. I get so tired of people playing fast and loose and defining terms beyond their biblical contexts. With the bible, context is KING, KING, KING. I said that three times because I felt that was just led by the Holy Spirit RIGHT NOW. The second part is a dire warning to those that would seek out sexual encounters with angels. I will bring up three passages from the bible to show how this is a horrible idea and a grave sin. I believe I found mercy for desiring these things in the past because I was ignorant of how horrible it was, partially due to the churches and pastors failing to teach good doctrine in this area, and also I have repented since then. The first is Genesis 6. I believe that DOES mean fallen angels taking human women as wives to sire children with them, creating "people" that were hybrids between angels and humans, often giants. This was such an abomination to God that He told the Israelites to kill entire tribes, combatants and civilians, men, women, children, and infants, also animals, wipe them all out without mercy, because otherwise their kind would replace the human beings created in God's image on the earth. These creatures were NOT in God's image, but rather the image of the fallen angels. God will not have that. God cannot have that if His purposes are to be fulfilled. The next passage is in Sodom, when those men wanted to rape the angels. I do believe that it is a sin for two men to have sex, but in THAT case I do believe that God was MORE angry about the part of the two men they wanted to have sex being angels, and that they were other men only as a secondary sin to the first part. In Jude when this is alluded to, the Greek word for going after "strange flesh" is LITERALLY "hetero", not "homo", meaning the men of Sodom were going after strange flesh in the sense of going after angels, rather then other men even though that is true. If God would have relented on destroying Sodom, I think the men trying to get with those two angels sealed the deal of their doom and destruction. It is well said that people who desire or succeed in getting sexual encounters with angels should repent, even for their own protection, and seek deliverance before forces of darkness lead them down a path of destruction. It is not a sin to be attracted to other people, but it is to seek out sexual encounters with angels. Even if an angel is shining brightly and is willing to be sexual with a human, it is either a fallen angel in disguise or may be in the process of falling. God forbid that I would tempt an angel of God to fall. GOD FORBID!!!! If I spoke with angels being tempted to fall I would consider it my job to convince them to resist and remain faithful to God if they will listen.

Here is an urgent warning to all pedophiles. The blood of Christ is available for the forgiveness of all sins. The power of God comes into anyone who places their faith in Christ to empower them to start overcoming all sins. If one becomes a believer and prays and works at it, they can overcome pedophiliac feelings. This is very difficult to impossible with secular therapies. However the power of God outweighs the power of secular therapies by magnitude of infinity. Here is a dire warning, if you entertain and enjoy these desires, or carry it out to act on it, you are feeding dark spirits. You are feeding into the Luciferian elites and the evil spirits and fallen angels that give them their power. You are feeding them which then once they gain enough power, you will be considered disposable to them or become their slave. Instead turn to faith in Jesus and use the power of the Holy Spirit to stop feeding these desires, and cut off the power of wicked spirits, cut off their food source and weaken them so they can more easily be defeated in spiritual warfare. Make the spiritual power of the elites an empty ritual instead some energizing force that threatens the freedom and safety of everyone on this planet. Repent, and wake up to what you are doing, and change course so that you can have victory.

The power elites molest and sacrifice children to feed their demons and fallen angels so they can gain more power back from them. Children have a radiant spiritual energy that the elites vampirize. The elites have dark spirits, not just demons around them and in them, but their own human spirits are utterly dark. All people, even these elites, could be radiant like a star with the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. What a tragedy of they do not repent, they could have an endless supply of godly spiritual power by the indwelling Holy Spirit, instead they steal the limited human spiritual energy from children. What wicked people. They must repent, or be thrown into a fire that will never go out. You rank and file pedophiles, you have faith in Jesus if you do not know Him, and repent, seeking the power of God to overcome your desires. Stop feeding the wicked system, if nothing else you will give these evil spirits more power to keep you enslaved in your personal life, but if the elites pass a certain threshold of power, you will become their slaves as well. These evil spirits have no mercy. They will crack the whip at your back and laugh at your pain. God has all the mercy and healing. Turn to Him.

I am currently a Christian who considers his relationship with God to be based on that Jesus paid for our sins at the cross, and faith or trust in Him for eternal life causes one to receive eternal life. Going to church or practicing a religion does not slowly earn one salvation or "help" one to keep salvation. Years ago I did not know that. I thought that going to church every weekend would earn me more points so that hopefully I could outweigh my sins and go to heaven. At that time the Holy Spirit directly spoke to me, telling me to have faith Christ for salvation, and that I would be assured of salvation and have a real direct relationship with God without going through any church to get to God. However at that time, and here is the shocker, I told God, "well I seek you in church, I have my own religion." So I literally told GOD, "No thank you, I've got my own religion". Amazing that I would even THINK of doing something like that, but I did. Over the next several years I kept feeling despair about how to get into heaven, I had an increasing awareness of how abysmally tiny my good works or attempts at them would weigh at God's judgement. Then a little later someone showed me some bible verses on how the shed blood of Christ paid for our sins, and other verses saying that we are saved by faith in Him INSTEAD of good works. Then I had faith in Christ and physically felt the Holy Spirit enter me after that. Now I view church, bible study, prayer, good works, as things that can aid in spiritual growth, but have 0% factor in whether or not you go to heaven over hell.

I am really uncertain if Antifa intends to start an armed revolt today or soon, or just mass protests with probably some rioting in the mix. Some stupid liberals say that conservatives saying that it MIGHT BE an armed revolt are a bunch of backwards hicks because oh that is not Antifa's plans, it is just conservative rhetoric, maybe those conservatives are hoping so because they are itching for a fight....well my response is that some of the evidence I have seen so far points to mass protests plus probably some rioting for the most part. Some of Antifa's rhetoric makes it EASY for me to believe they are capable of attempting an armed revolt, but maybe they don't have the numbers to pull it off and are smart enough to not attempt it. Here is the thing, I really do believe they desire to take over our government. I am actually thankful that they hate cops. Here is why, it means none of them will join police forces. This ensures that any encounter I have with the police will be peaceful and respectful. If an Antifa minded cop decides to harass me over my political or religious beliefs or even try to beat me or arrest me for such things, I PROMISE I will make things very difficult for that officer. In fact IF I start hearing of Antifa people joining police forces I WILL obtain my conceal carry. Police academies would be smart to screen out Antifa minded people if they started attempting to join.

The first one is in the name of Jesus in pictographic Hebrew (Yashuah), what each of the pictographic characters represents, it spells a sentence : “The Hand That Destroys the Establishment of the Eye!”. We know the eye being referred to is the eye in the pyramid. Jesus will destroy its establishment. The New World Order may rage against God, but it will never win.

The second sentence are what the names of some early biblical characters mean in Hebrew, and when put in order, makes a sentence: Adam -Man Seth -Appointed Enosh – Mortal Kenan – Sorrow Mahalalel – The blessed God Jared – Shall come down Enoch – Teaching Methuselah – His death shall bring Lamech – Despairing Noah – Comfort and rest

And so we have a sentence: Man appointed mortal sorrow, the blessed God shall come down teaching, His death shall bring the despairing rest and comfort.

Case in point, I don't attend church all the time, but I did this weekend, and a woman a few seats down from me was very interesting. She was dressed conservatively, a longer dress, but I could really feel the power of God's Spirit flowing from her. Case in point, even though she was more covered, I her inner spirit was more open, naked to me. Case in point, this is the kind of woman that really impressed me. Any erotic portion was subdued because we were in church, it was at that time to focus more on God, but I can see how that kind of connection can become erotic, your spirit mixing with someone else's and erotic thoughts and feelings being shared that way. Of course it is much more than that, healing, freedom from old bondages, but the erotic part is nice sometimes.

I have made many posts here on what the bible really teaches about sex, and granted I have come to the conclusion that the modern church culture is often much stricter than the biblical narrative. However there are far larger issues at stake right now. Antifa wishes to take down America (not sure they are strong enough to, but they hate our nation), there is corruption at the highest levels of government. We need to continue to pray and push that the light be shone in the dark places so the corrupt elites may either repent on their knees, be dealt with, or flee and go live somewhere else. I think the Antifa protesters are manifesting a deep demonic evil that is now coming to the surface. People are more and more revealing who they really are. I think spiritual power is being released that is making it harder to hide evil. God's perfect will is for people to let deep seated evil in their hearts rise to the surface so that people can repent. However if people refuse to repent then the evil more easily manifests outwardly. I believe we are in a season where this kind of thing is going to keep increasing. I do pray that every single government official involved in corruption repents. If they do not make no mistake, God is going to take care of business with them. Some who have avoided being caught for years or decades may suddenly find themselves in courts. Almost every day I hear a new news story breaking on corruption. It will no longer be hidden. It is going to be exposed and dealt with. In the natural you may see people end up in court, maybe a few suddenly dropping from a heart attack or getting some fatal disease, but the Hand of God is behind it all. God's justice is going to increasingly manifest itself in the natural realm.

I keep on finding love in the wrong place. Sleazy place (by definition). But a high class one though. Why don't models (amateur models) go to church? I know the ladies in the church have their beauty inside. But see, that's the thing, I am shallow.

I am a Christian with a hard cock. Well not 24/7, are you kidding, that would be a medical emergency, but shall we say often enough. I am single. I do not feel that it is a sin. I am not joking, some may find this post funny, which I do myself, but underneath it all, this post is not intended to be a joke. I am not some liberal Christian either. I do believe the bible is the inspired Word of God. (Granted some translations are better than others, in fact some translations in a few verses actually do teach errors, that is beyond the scope of this post). Bible translations can teach errors if the translators try to hard to interpret what they THINK a verse should say rather than faithfully rendering what it says in the original Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, etc... The bible is intended to be interpreted by CONTEXT. We need to realize that even chapters and verses were added in translations and did not exist in the original manuscripts or even copies in the original languages. Regarding having a hard cock and using it accordingly, first of all many may bring up Matt 5:27-28 to say that it is a sin. Well in Greek the word for woman is "gune", and gune can mean wife or woman in Greek, WHICH it is talking about depends on the CONTEXT the word is used in the sentence or passage. Since Matt 5:27 regards adultery, and adultery in the bible means taking (or in Hebrew ENTERING) another man's wife, Matt 5:27 regards lusting after a married (or possibly betrothed) woman ONLY, and not ANY woman. Also lust in Greek can mean an extreme or strong desire, so finding another man's wife attractive is not a sin. It is wise to guard your heart, but neither be paranoid and beat yourself up if you find a married woman attractive. I would put the sin described in Matt 5:27 as a STRONG desire to take a married woman. Also on fornication, even though the dictionary says it means unmarried sex, by CONTEXT the bible says no such thing. The Old Testament is full of biblical heroes having concubines (meaning like lovers or girlfriends). Nowhere is it called a sin. Fornication by how it is used in the bible means any of the list of sexual sins in the Old Testament, and especially temple prostitution. To thicken the plot here when people went to visit temple prostitutes there was often a belief one was having sex with the god or goddess through the prostitute as a proxy. Since the false gods and goddesses are really either demons or fallen angels, one can REALLY understand why God is unhappy with this practice. So my hard cock aimed at single women either in my thoughts or in person, or some situation in between, is not a sin. Chuckle at this post, but consider that my interpretation of the bible might be right. By the way, I have read a few verses out of certain bible translations that are NOT accurate. These translations are pieces of rubbish and offend God. The translators and publishers need to repent. One translation says "as above, so below" instead of "your will be done on earth as in heaven". "As above, so below", is a saying of occultists and really means "as above in the second heaven, where demonic forces and fallen angels float around, so below on earth". So this saying is an abomination and does not belong in any bible. But since many churches are in apostasy, it fits. Apostate Christians need to repent on bended knees so that God can use them for real and they stop playing church.

Why did the Son of God suffer and die so horribly? Because He paid for our sins. He never sinned. We all have sinned. It was for our sins that Jesus died. Receive Him as Lord and Savior. Turn away from sin. Follow Him, as He leads you and know God's peace and forgiveness- that one can only know through faith in Christ, and what He accomplished for us. God Bless

I discovered my natural talent for lucid dreaming a while ago , although i have been having these experiences ever since a i was a child. There is a underlying world in the astral real , or dream state. The first layer or the first gate is the dream itself, in which you must awaken in order to be lucid , to realize you are dreaming you need a trigger , something odd or out of place in that dream that you begin to question its credibility to physical reality. Once you realize you are in a dream you are aproaching lucidity , you can then either assume you are in a alien place and fall flat on your face or take control of your surroundings by understanding this is YOUR world , the one you have created. Once you make this your absolute truth you will begin to understand lucidity and dreams a bit more. You will also understand you are in a sense , a Creator. You have the innate hability to forge worlds right in front of your eyes with the command of a thought , this is true power, Willpower. You can use your Will in your dreams to influence almost every outcome , as long as you are the only "player" influencing said dream. You see this is only the first gate , or shall i say the kindergarden of lucid dreaming , where you play and experiment with yourself and your natural habilies. When you break the second gate you will realize your dreams sometimes will have other entities in it. And i mean real conscious entities , separate from your own creations. These beings are either alien or human , and their intention will vary greatly. Some of them are leeches , beings that leech life energy from humans by feeding on their emotions , there are many beings that do this to gain power , i call them The Hollow. They will try to scare you or create situations in your dreams that will scare you or create any strong human emotion so they can feed on it. What we call nightmares are actually just these beings orchestrating dreams to influence the Dreamer. They only act this way in the first gate , they will shapeshift to mantain their little dream and trick you to believe this is your dream , when in fact they control it with a few "agents" , but as soon as the Dreamer is lucid or begins to aproach lucidity they will flee since they can no longer influence you or trick you , and also are scarred that you might destroy them.

You see if you die in someone elses dream you die for real. Thats why it is dangerous to invade someones dream and if you should do it make sure that person is lucid and knows who you are , and allows you to be in their dream.

Anyway , this one time i was dreaming in a non-lucid state , and i had a trigger , this trigger was i saw a exact duplicate of my body walking down the street , acting like a complete fool. Upon seeing this i got lucid almost instantly and i aproached the entity posing as me. I actually was so mad that i took complete control of this dream and suddenly the shapeshifter was trapped in my grip , i had him pressed against the floor and my voice echoed in the sky as i said "I am your master" in the most epic and wrathful voice , i felt like Zeus. Then i remember beams of light coming out of the shapeshifter eyes as if i was purging him from my dream. I am not sure if i killed him but if not he will never come back to my dream , thats for sure.

Anyway im still learning the ropes to break the second gate but i know it is a dangerous place out there. If you took the time to read this and have similar experiences about lucid dreaming feel free to share , im always glad to read :)

Have a good day and happy lucid dreaming

Here is a fascinating video: https:// [filtered hyperlink]. com/watch?v=oD3HevLL-Hs. I believe attempting Transhumanism is a GREAT SIN. We should repent before even trying it. I believe it is the SAME sin Adam and Eve committed in the Garden when they took the fruit and ate it. It is the SAME thing. I contend that the Mark of The Beast is a chip that will change your DNA and change people into Nephilim, making them unredeemable and fit only to burn in the lake of fire forever. https:// [filtered hyperlink] . com/watch?v=zMOd3cw-c8I

Transhumanism could put people into a state of a living hell they can't get out of for a long time, or in some cases, forever.

I am a Christian and I love sex. I am LETTING THE LORD WORK IN MY LIFE to remove remnants of guilt. The bible does tell us what is sexual sin, but it is NOT A SIN to be sexual in general. I do make efforts to seek the Lord first and not make sex an idol, but having said that, when I put sex in its proper place, I DO LOVE it and will never stop loving it, and I will never repent of my current attitude. I can grow and become more refined, but my attitude is based on the bible therefore why should I "repent". I save my repentance for actual sin, not non-sin or things that man-made opinion or man-made religion says is a sin, or even what religion inspired by demons says is a sin.

Mysteries #1

advice

People are born not knowing what they are , and then they spend their whole lives thinking they know what they are. Only to die and realize they never knew

"The thing that hath been It is that which shall be And that wich has been done Is that which shall be done And there is no new thing under the Sun"

You see , humans are no longer in touch with their instincts. The Natural self as been replaced as if an impairment to self growth. And reconstructed to the image of Man was born the Ego, this mask that creates the illusion of self thought and action. Humans have had their truest and deepest connection with the Universe and Life itself siezed from them by the arrogance of their denial. Denial only births Denial, and so are we. Through the Dark age we stumble from step to another step looking for something we will never find.

This is an article by Christian HYPOCRITES. They do detail some of Trump's PAST sins, probably accurately. Granted sometimes past sins of famous people are overblown, but let's say this report of Trump's PAST sins is accurate. Trump has now publicly apologized and repented of at least some of his past sins. He is the most praying president ever. He is known to hold prayer meetings every day for at least a few hours, especially to see guidance from God's Spirit. If these Christians want to condemn Trump for his PAST, let them look in the mirror FIRST, point the FINGER, and condemn themselves for ALL of their PAST sins, and declare themselves unfit to be used by God for anything important and fit to burn in hell FOREVER. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. HYPOCRITES REPENT REPENT REPENT. I do not apologize for calling my fellow Christians out when they play the hypocrite. Aren't ALL SINS supposed to be forgiven when one trusts the Lord to save them LIKE TRUMP HAS, even if that is recent? If you do not accept his repentance then you ARE A HYPOCRITE, no matter your past sins. His wealth is not a sin, maybe he had a greedy attitude in the past, which is a sin, but now forgiven, and he has a new attitude or is growing into a new attitude as a believer. Two people can have the same amount of wealth, and two different attitudes, one sinful, the other not. Many Christians need to repent, not to get saved, but to grow spiritually, unless some who call themselves Christians who are not, then they need to trust Christ to get saved before they stand before Him on judgement day and are told "I NEVER KNEW YOU, INTO THE FIRE PREPARED FOR THE DEVIL AND HIS ANGELS". Take this warning very very very soberly and seriously.

I am a faithful, bible-thumping Christians. There is a particular group of street preachers I can't stand at all. Their tactics are stupid, even some of their DOCTRINE is wrong, ESPECIALLY on what they are telling people they need to do to be saved. If you go out and street preach, FIRST make sure you are telling people how to be saved the correct way, otherwise you are wasting a lot of time. God can use them in the sense that people like ME can point out to unbelievers that they are presenting how NOT to get saved, and acting in a manner that Christians or even human beings should NOT act. They can be used as object lessons. Not very flattering but I don't care. I am done being politically correct anyway. Right now the Holy Spirit in me won't allow it. I am allowed to be and even sense an encouragement to be respectful, but not politically correct where I pretend to agree with someone else on an issue or belief just to make them feel better. These street preachers teach that you must stop sinning to get saved. They claim that they don't sin or don't sin much. They ignore large parts of the bible that talks about sinning with your attitudes and in your mind, and focus more on outward behavior. It is easier to change outward behavior but not your mind and then deceive yourself into thinking you are sinless or almost sinless. They are also very strict about rules they say people should follow that are not based on the bible or a very loose interpretation of some scriptures and take things out of context. One thought life thing people do get wrong is Matt 5:27-28 where people think it is a sin to be attracted or fantasize or even desire a woman. The Greek word for woman here, gune, can mean woman or wife depending on context. Since Matt 5:27 is speaking of adultery gune here means another man's wife or betrothed. The Greek word for lust also means a strong desire beyond simple attraction. So adultery of the heart means to strongly desire another man's wife or in the modern sense maybe a serious girlfriend he is committed to or fiancée. It does not mean a single woman at all. If you were to take that verse to out of context, adultery of the heart to "lust after a woman", you would have to say that even includes your own wife. That is utterly senseless. We have a choice, we can either interpret the bible contextually so that things just make sense, or we can rip things out of context and end up with senseless beliefs and look stupid to people who might ask good questions. However it is still very possible to sin in your mind and many people do so in many varied ways.

Also on salvation we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ for eternal life. We can do so because he paid for all sins at the cross, and then was raised from the dead. What is interesting about these street preachers is they almost never talk about salvation in Christ. Or if they do, they do it in the sense of "believing in Jesus" is just one more thing on a list of things you have to DO to be saved, such as "have faith in Jesus, stop these sins, do these other things", blah blah bah. That is a false gospel. They are also very angry often. The bible does tell Christians to often be more kind when attempting to correct others and be more stern only in more extreme cases or when the other person just knows better but is being really stubborn.

One thing I am really more stern about lately are many modern churches entering into a state of apostasy, but I feel more stern to Christians who should know better vs. unbelievers. Oh ya as a Christian you have or can get indwelling Holy Spirit if you are not a Christian but put your faith in Jesus Christ. I think the Holy Spirit in me is causing me to be more gentle to people who don't know as much, but more stern to Christians who should know better but don't. This means both apostates and people like these street preachers who are stricter than the bible and who twist scriptures.

One wonders how many converts they gain. What comes to mind with these street preachers, is what JESUS SAID, JESUS SAID, JESUS SAID, to the Pharisees, "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves." In videos of these street preachers on YouTube I have not seen them win ONE SINGLE convert. A friend says he caught one video once of them gaining one convert. That is amazing to me in and of itself.

I know of an Independent Fundamental Baptist Pastor who also has lots of rules that are based more on the twisting of Scriptures but his beliefs and doctrines are much better than these Street Preachers. In spite of his blind spots and weaknesses he has won MANY converts the gospel of Christ when he has gone out to harvest souls. See the contrast? I have boldness for the Lord. I am not ashamed of my Christian faith. I AM ASHAMED to be associated with people that twist the gospel and twist the scriptures and make it harder for people to enter the kingdom of heaven than it should be. I am NOT ASHAMED of Christ. I AM ASHAMED OF THESE STREET PREACHERS. I would prefer that they not call themselves Christians.

For all of their preaching they preach very little about Christ and faith in Him for salvation. When REAL Christians confront them, they berate and make fun of them, and call them lukewarm, compromisers, etc. THEY are compromising the gospel of Christ. If people trust what they say how to get saved instead of Christ Jesus, the people hearing their message will remain unsaved, unless they are already saved, but then it may throw their life of faith off track the Holy Spirit corrects them and hopefully they will listen to such correction. Christians or people who call themselves Christians have no business acting like modern version of the Pharisees. Acting like that calls for repentance repentance repentance. Since we are saved by the grace of God through faith, part of living a Christian life does mean examining your self and repenting in a process of spiritual growth.

Predestination in the sense of God choosing who to save and who to leave unsaved is false. Yes the scripture teaches people need the Holy Spirit to draw them to Christ. Calvinists teach that the drawing cannot be resisted even by free will, and if people remain unsaved it is because God never drew them to begin with. This contradicts many passages in the bible. The only places where the bible talks about predestination is where it talks about those who ARE believers are predestined to become conformed to the image of Christ. Predestination is not for salvation, it is for those who become saved to be conformed to the image of Christ. The ultimate end on that is to be resurrected like Christ at the end of the age.

There is an extreme wing of Calvinism that says that EVERYTHING that happens is predestined by God, there is no free will. So that rape, that murder, that torture, was all predestined. God may allow things but they actually say God CAUSES such things. The problem with that is the bible says that God is not the author of sin and does not lead people or tempt people into sin. The early church had a militant view of fighting evil, that is to spread the gospel, teach the bible, and pray, and do spiritual warfare, to change themselves and those around them to make the world a better place. If not perfect, then at least better. The extreme Calvinists have a defeatist attitude and say what will be will be, and say well at least WE are going to go to heaven in the end. Their attitude may end up being a self-fulfilling prophesy. They have put down their spiritual weapons for the forces of hell to devour them. Many modern Christians have degrees of this defeatist attitude. May we repent. The old teaching of the Catholic Church calls the church in heaven the Church Triumphant. They call the church on earth the Church Militant. I don't agree with all Catholic doctrine, but they have this one RIGHT! Amen!

I have some videos depicting the Army of God. Mighty warriors all of them:

[filtered hyperlink] [filtered hyperlink]

[filtered hyperlink]

The song is in Arabic or Coptic, but the YouTube page provides a translation of the lyrics for us.

Translation of song: Chorus: "Exalt the name of Christ, lift His name up with your songs, call the heroes, His heroes, to walk ahead of you with the cross" ; Say He is risen and death has no power, and there is no forgiveness except through His blood; and the Light of the Gospel is greater; Say he conquered darkness and its power; He brightened our days; and the light of day is greater; Say He conquered His enemies; we conquered by witnessing to Him and by His blood; and our inheritance with Him is greater; live the joy of heaven, as Satan dons the clothes of grief; and our praises are greater"

ISIS is the FAKE army of God. This IS the REAL ARMY OF GOD. They think dying in the service of murdering for God will get them a ticket to paradise. It will get them a ticket to an elevator going down fast......unless they repent and have faith in Jesus Christ.

Comments on these videos please...I am very blessed by them. It aids in spiritual warfare in my own life.

Demonic forces should be afraid, very afraid...Baal should lock his fortress down as if that will do any good, well it is a good try anyway.

The gates of hell not prevailing against God's assembly are GATES. Meaning hell is the fortress and God's army is laying siege to it. NOT the church being under siege with demonic fortress surrounding its walls. Often this is true but the church is supposed to be the besieging army breaking down the gates of hell to go in and rescue the people that are the prisoners. May the real Army of God grow ever bigger and bigger and the people in it do target focused prayer and repentance, hone themselves for every higher levels of training. May the apostate churches repent and join or stay out of the way.

When I was a younger Christian I USED to think God preserved the bible in the sense of EVERY single verse in EVERY single translation. I know KNOW this NOT to be true. This IS true if the translators do a true translation of the original words from Greek and Hebrew and don't try to interpret FOR the reader what they THINK it should say. TRUE translations do indeed faithfully render what God originally said in the original languages. However with some versions of the bible the translators did NOT do such a good job with this. God preserves His Word more in the sense that there will always be some faithful versions and translations existing in every generation rather than people assuming that ALL versions are just as good as each other. I do not care if my post offends some Christians. It is true. I can PROVE it by giving a few examples:

From Gen 6:2 -

New International Version the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.

New Living Translation The sons of God saw the beautiful women and took any they wanted as their wives.

English Standard Version the sons of God saw that the daughters of man were attractive. And they took as their wives any they chose.

New American Standard Bible that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.

King James Bible That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Holman Christian Standard Bible the sons of God saw that the daughters of mankind were beautiful, and they took any they chose as wives for themselves.

International Standard Version some divine beings noticed how attractive human women were, so they took wives for themselves from a selection that pleased them.

NET Bible the sons of God saw that the daughters of humankind were beautiful. Thus they took wives for themselves from any they chose.

New Heart English Bible that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose.

GOD'S WORD® Translation The sons of God saw that the daughters of other humans were beautiful. So they married any woman they chose.

JPS Tanakh 1917 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.

New American Standard 1977 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.

Jubilee Bible 2000 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair, and they took for themselves wives of all whom they chose.

King James 2000 Bible That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

American King James Version That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

American Standard Version that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.

Douay-Rheims Bible The sons of God seeing the daughters of men, that they were fair, took themselves wives of all which they chose.

Darby Bible Translation that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and took themselves wives of all that they chose.

English Revised Version that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.

Webster's Bible Translation That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all whom they chose.

World English Bible that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose.

Young's Literal Translation and sons of God see the daughters of men that they are fair, and they take to themselves women of all whom they have chosen.

Notice how God's Word (NOT) so-called translation says the daughter's of men and OTHER humans, indicating that they take this verse to mean that the "sons of God" as used in this passage are human men, rather than angels. Contextually to say it means angels makes more sense. It explains HOW the giants came about in the earth both before and after Noah. For all the problems with the NIV I actually really like how the NIV renders this verse. I also really like how the ISV renders it too. In ancient Hebrew thought angels were called divine beings, not just God Himself. Doesn't mean the angels WERE God, but they were often thought of as divine beings (but limited in power compared to God) because they are spirits sent from God (except for those that fell). So we can see from this verse most translations of the bible are pretty good, one is problematic. When translating the bible people doing the work should pray HARD to weed out pre-conceived bias and not let their pre-conceived beliefs color their translation work.

Here is a another famous verse a few translations mess up:

New International Version Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Weymouth New Testament "Repent," replied Peter, "and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, with a view to the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

World English Bible Peter said to them, "Repent, and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Young's Literal Translation and Peter said unto them, 'Reform, and be baptized each of you on the name of Jesus Christ, to remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,

Most are pretty good. The Greek word for "repent" is metanoia, which to change your mind. In the context of this passage it would indicate changing your mind on what you think of Christ, because before this Peter goes into how they crucified Christ. I would take it to mean you should recognize you have sin, change your mind regarding Christ as Messiah, and trust Him to save you. Young's Literal is not so literal (reform indicates changing your LIFE which would indicate works instead of faith. Repent is a better word for faithfully render the Greek "metanoia". GODS NOT WORD translation indicates good works to get saved again, I am not surprised that that "translation" messes some things up. The Douay-Rheims bible says "do penance", come on, give me a break, the Israelites among the crowd just had Christ crucified. Does saying ten Our Father's and 30 Hail Mary's going to cut it when they stand before a perfectly Holy God on Judgement Day, if they tell Him, "we prayed the Rosary 20 times" He will just toss them into the fire without even thinking about it, but REPENTING, now that is something God would accept and credit forgiveness to them for their sins.

Matthew 6:10 in most bibles says "they will be done earth as in heaven" from the Lord's prayer, but here the Message Bible says "as above, so below" this is a saying of occultists and does not mention God's will. One can address a will above and have it NOT be God's will, but rather the will of fallen angels floating around in the SECOND heaven above the earth. This Message Bible sounds more like to a message from Lucifer attempting to pose as a message from God. The Message Bible is an extreme example, but people wanting to know Christ and grow spiritually should use other bible translations instead. Some study I did indicates the phrase "as above, so below" goes back to ANCIENT magicians and occultists. The Message Bible is a perfect fit for apostate churches of which many seem to be headed that way.

I used to hear Christians encourage people to attend church after leading them to have faith in Christ, but at THIS point it HIGHLY depends on WHICH churches you are talking about. If ALL churches in an are apostate or too compromised to attend, then my advice is to attend NO church and attempt to gather with fellow Christians more informally.
