Modernity is so dismissive of everything that came before it. We have learned while in it to diminish all things spiritual. The modern rise of the Intellect and the academic learning it descends from have trained us to ignore our Conscience. Stepping both over and on our spirit which is our conscience, and the inherent knowing of right and wrong built into it. Our sense of ought, knowing what we should do regardless of what we feel like doing, comes out of our conscience.
This inherent knowledge is called Morality, and in all the knowledge of all men can be traced back only to the Bible, as its first and oldest source. It is most clearly on display in true Christianity. All of which works by Faith, so that if your faith is weak your christianity will be also. Because we live in a time of great deception where so little of the real is visible anywhere, it is very easy to Fake it. Jesus warned us many times that Deceivers would come in this very day.
That’s what these other religions are, including the many cults of Christianity. They are fakes. Possessing attributes of the real, but not the substance. Similar in form, but containing none of the power. Such parallels can be found anywhere in the whole of fallen creation. The design of currency is as much art as any painting, but if it’s not Authorized by the government it claims to represent – it is Counterfeit.
The word means made in exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intention to deceive. Catholic is not another branch of Christianity, or even worse a forerunner of it, as taught by their clergy. It is not Christianity at all. Though many aspects of it look and sound similar to those who Follow Christ – they do not follow Him. They follow the pope, and they always have. They rose to power in the same era that another error was erupting from a madman in the desert.
Less than a century ago they were known as papists throughout the Christian world. Just as muslims were known as muhammadens because they follow the non profit mohammed. Allah is not another word for the God of the Bible, not even close. In their own language Allah is a corruption of Il-lah, the name of the moon god they served when they were pagans. They worshipped this pagan god for centuries before muhammad started listening to the demons behind the paganism.
In his book Slavery and Human Progress, Davis explains “the Arabs and their Muslim allies were the first people to develop a specialized, long distance slave trade from sub-Saharan Africa. They were also the first people to view blacks as suited by nature for the lowest and most degrading forms of bondage.” From 1915 – 1918 they wiped out 80% of the Armenian population (1.5 million people).
The Armenian massacre in Turkey was both a prototype and forerunner of the Nazi attempt at Jewish extermination some 30 years later. During the 80’s and 90’s Muslims in North Sudan were selling Black Christians into slavery. In 1990 it was believed that Mauritania had as many as 400,000 slaves. In every area of the world where they are a significant part of the population – they are at war.
Don’t you believe all the Lies these religions tell about themselves. Judge the validity of all things by what the Bible says – as what the Bible says will judge all things on Judgment Day. Islam is a religion of War, literally. The word Islam means submission. A muslim is one who submits. It has been enlarged almost entirely through conquest. Still evident today in the battles raging across India, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The last of which is the most populous muslim nation on earth. Two thirds of the world’s poorest people live in muslim countries. You can go to any nation on earth and see how Blessed they are by the god they serve.
How very odd that the God who created the earth and everything in it really does require submission, but He insists that you submit your self. Not some other Self. Everything that God does the Devil does a perversion of, a counterfeit. Can you see what’s been twisted here. In Islam, they do all the submitting for your self – they make your self submit to themselves. It wasn’t the West that chose a place of preeminence for himself among his brothers of all the tribes of the earth – The Blessing does that. The Blessing of Abraham.
God does determine times and boundaries as they relate to authority, and the Bible says so. But much of what happens to any nation, and all of what He has for any individual is accessed or blocked by our own choices. Our response to what He has already said and done. It is His Plan and Provision for each of us that is predetermined, not our choices. Our very ability to choose good or evil, to help or to harm, to draw near Him or to stay away, is one of the things that makes us most like Him. It’s called free will, and science doesn’t even attempt to explain it without looking very foolish.
Any nation that gets under God’s Authority as ordained by Him in the earth, can get in on The Blessing. Go back and read about this blessing that God put on Abraham in the covenant He made with him. Paul explains at length how to get in on it in the New Covenant. Which is open to everyone . . . who Believes. This Blessing has been going on for the last 4000 years, right in front of us – non stop.
The same is true for what Noah spoke over his sons when they came off of the Ark. All the tribes of the earth can be traced back to Noah and his three sons. Shem, one of Noah’s sons, was still alive when Abram gave him a tenth of everything he had taken in the battle of the kings, when he rescued his nephew Lot who had been kidnapped from Sodom. Abram who became Abraham wasn’t Jewish, he was a pagan himself. Neither were Adam and Eve, they are the father and mother of us all. Israel was and is just a small part of it, as most of their people carry the name Jew which is a diminutive of the name of a single tribe – Judah.
God is not playing, and this is not a game. Death means nothing to Him, and it does not come from Him. You’ll understand that clearly after you pass through it. People just don’t take what the Bible says seriously. God is not real enough, even to most believers. One of the tenets of being muslim is that you must believe in Moses, Jesus and the Bible. They don’t. Like the mormons who also claim the Bible as one of their books – their own writings have preeminence.
In all religion, all writing, all knowledge – we’re talking about where the thing that directs you comes from. And your relation to it. Your orientation, as it were. During my years in the military as a navy diver, orienteering was the practice of navigating across unfamiliar open country with a compass. Knowing which way to go becomes crucial in the life of all men. In the end, it will be the most crucial thing. That’s why the main entrance of Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, like many pagan temples after it, faces the East. To situate the House of God in such a manner was to orient it in the proper direction.
The word orient comes from the Latin oriens which literally and originally means rising, as in where the sun rises. In the figurative and spiritual sense of course, it refers to where the Light comes from. Later, the word came to mean the east in a general sense. It was never referring to the modern people of the east, but to something God did there long ago. A love letter really. We’re still reading it today. It is the most popular book in the history of the world. After creating Adam and Eve, God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden. We are to always look toward the East, to what He did in Eden. As it is to Eden He will be bringing us back upon His return. His Word promises it.
That’s what the Millennium is all about. He’s going to show us what it would have been like if the first man and woman hadn’t messed up. We’ll be ruling and reigning with Him for a thousand years, just as a prelude of what’s to come . . . if you Believe. Even after God had banished them from Eden as a consequence of their Sin, they were banished to the East. It was more of His mercy. As all light comes from Him, being nearer the Light, they were closer to Him.
Man has been running from God ever since, but you don’t have to. You can change your direction . . . by changing your orientation. When any man no matter what his sin or background faces the correct direction, he will have the proper orientation. Face the Son. He never stopped looking at you. Not for a single moment.
