Reddit Shuts Down.jpg

The Reddit community, CBTS (The Calm Before the Storm) was completely banned on March 14, 2018 on the false claim that it incited violence. For larger image, click on the picture.

The main purpose of this website is for the body of Christ. But we who are not of this world are still in this world. So issues of this fallen world pertain to the body of Christ.

As born again Christians, our kingdom is the kingdom of Christ.  We do not maintain dual citizenship. Jesus said you can not serve two masters.  However, we are ambassadors of Christ sent here to be salt and light.  That means we are to share the Gospel to everyone. It has always been Satan’s intention to stop that sharing.  Over the centuries Bibles have been burned in an attempt to stop sharing the Gospel.  Organizations have developed that claim that only a priestly caste can read the Bible preventing ordinary people from reading it.  When the Reformation and the Gutenberg press made the Bible readily available they then claimed that only the properly trained could interpret it correctly.

Q-Anon The Great Awakening 0

Posted on January 22, 2018 by Alexander

The second American Revolution is underway.

I began following the Q-Anon posts a month after they were being posted. For those who don’t know, Q is the highest level security clearance for the Treasury Department, and one or more White House insiders have been posting Socratic messages to the Reddit 4 chan, then 8 chan board revealing the White House strategy to take down the deep state. Due to deep state hacking, a special chan board was set up called, The Great Awakening. This board has no Anon feedback which was previously mixed with the Q posts. Consequently the posts were referred to as the Q-Anon threads. For those unfamiliar with the Reddit chans, most of the contributors call themselves the same thing, “Anon”, which is short for anonymous. Due to the change to a locked board, the chan moderators set up another chan called The Calm Before the Storm, or CBTS for short, for comments and feed back.   Many truth seekers on You Tube had jumped on board trying to understand the Q posts.  Recently Dr. Jerome Corsi,  a writer for World Net Daily, and a frequent guest on the Alex Jones show, has jumped on board with an extensive knowledge in government affairs.

In the January 21st Q posts, a detailed outline is given on the contents of the Nune FBI Memo which is a 16 year plan to destroy America so it can be molded into the North American Union.  Eight years of Obama preparing the destruction, and 8 years of Hillary Clinton bringing in WWWIII with a nuclear holocaust.

Rabbinic Judaism as Told by a Jew 0

How rabbinic Judaism views Christianity

Jewish History-Jewish Religion: the Weight of 3,000 Years of History was  written by one of their own, an Ashkenazi Jew, Israel Shahak.  Shahak was a Polish Jew who survived the WWII concentration camps, then later served in the Israeli Defense Forces with honors.  He was also a biochemist and a humanist that was critical of the state of Israel.  Because of his views, and this book, he was spat upon by his fellow Israelis, and considered hostile to Jews and Israel, of which he was not.  When a Jew criticizes Judaism, it is worth knowing what he has to say.  This is no anti-Semite, since he is a Semite himself.

His book was published in 1994, but only recently did I find out about it and read it.    A few years ago I read Arthur Koestler’s book on Khazarian Jews called, The Thirteenth Tribe,  which claims that Ashkenazi Jews are not descendants of Judah but are Europeans from the area now known as Georgia and Russia between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.  Once again, we have a Jew criticizing Judaism who is   also considered “debunked” by the Jewish community.  His work is also worth the read.

500th Anniversary! 2

Posted on October 29, 2017 by Alexander

Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis on the Wittenberg chapel door on October 31st, 1517 500 years ago to protest the sales of indulgences by the Roman Catholic church sparking the Protestant Reformation.

Over the years I have encouraged readers to not celebrate the demonic Irish Catholic celebration of Samhain renamed “Hallowed Evening” or “Halloween” by the Roman Catholic leaders who absorbed paganism into their system and white washed it with “Christianized” nomenclature. Samhain (pronounced Sowain) is the Druidic feast of the dead and was brought to Protestant America in the 19th century by the Irish Catholics who fled the Great Potato Famine of Ireland for the prosperous shores of the United States. Up until that time Halloween was never observed.

The Lutherans of Germany have always recognized October 31st as Reformation Day. And as the title and caption indicate, this is the 500th anniversary of that historic day when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Thesis protesting the sales of indulgences on the Wittenberg chapel door which sparked the Protestant Reformation and brought the new birth to millions of Europeans. Because of that single act of defiance, the English came to know Christ, and eventually the colonists sought out a new country that could be run by the freedom that Christianity brings to believers. The USA has a huge debt to Martin Luther.

I just finished reading EW Bullinger’s book, “Numbers” which takes a look at Old and New Testament through the Jewish system of the Gematria. The number 5 is significant for grace and the number 100 (a multiple of 10) for the perfection of divine order. I found the book fascinating, and I wonder if there will be a significant change in the Church of Jesus Christ this year. Already, much has been wondered regarding the seven eclipses that was viewed across 7 cities in the USA. There was also talk regarding the conjunction of Jupiter with sun in between Virgo and Leo. I heard another speak of the significance of the wineries of Napa county burning up along with the casino shooting of Mandalay.

Such talk is not new, of course. Only time will tell if any thing comes of these things. But, at the very least, for followers of Christ who abhor the pagan ritual of Halloween, this is a great time to remember the saints of the Reformation who transformed Europe and was the seed bed for Americanism. Celebrate this momentous event. I will be dressing up as Martin Luther to tell the children that I work with about this great change.

What does 1 Corinthians 11 Really Mean? 0

Posted on July 27, 2017 by Alexander

A metaphorical look at praying with your head covered.

Understanding what is written in the Bible comes through context. Why is the writer writing in the first place? What is his point for writing the epistle? The latter half of 1 Corinthians is instruction on body ministry using spiritual gifts. Your verse comes from chapter 11 which is the beginning of the discussion on how the body comes together. Notice the latter part of chapter 11 is on the agape love feasts and communion with the Lord. Chapter 12 goes into the spiritual gifts, and the latter half is on how the body should use the spiritual gifts. Chapter 13 on love is sandwiched between 12 and 14 because Paul is showing that love should be your motivation for using any spiritual gift in the body. Fourteen is specifically on tongues and prophecy as a means to edify the body.

During the time of Paul’s writing Corinthians, the believers met in homes.  The Greeks did not copy the practice of the Jews, who met in synagogues, until the Greek orators who made their living talking became Christians and saw this as a way to generate personal revenue preaching the Gospel to the saints on a weekly basis. This meant that the hosts of the house churches were the natural authorities since it was their home people met in.  Naturally the husband should be the host, but, apparently some did not take the mantel, which fell upon the wives.

So getting back to chapter 11 he shows that the body first begins in marriage. He speaks of the divine order of authority in verse 3: God, Christ, man, then woman. In verses 8 and 9 he alludes to the order of creation: Adam, then Eve from the side of Adam, and that Eve was created for Adam, not Adam for Eve. Verse 4 gives the context of what the hair covering refers to: prayer and prophecy. Prayer, of course, is us speaking to God, whereas prophecy is God speaking to us through someone. In the creation of Adam and Eve, God had already spoken to Adam and it was Adam’s responsibility to say what God said to Adam then to Eve.

I usually take most of the Bible literally, but not all of it. In this case, I do not take the hair covering literally. The Jews have taken the statement in Leviticus not to seethe the kid in the mother’s milk literally. Personally I believe God was speaking metaphorically there in the same way we say, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. It is a common interpretation of 1 Corinthians 11 to say that the hair covering refers to the authority of the man over the woman, and I partly agree with this, but not in a blanket fashion. In this passage I think it refers only to who prays and who prophesies. If we may, let’s walk through verse by verse.

Understanding Universal Salvation 0

Posted on July 07, 2017 by Alexander

Will all be saved n the end?

I asked the question, “What is Universal Salvation” on a forum that has Christians from all walks of life. I genuinely wanted to know why people believe in universal salvation. I knew I would get a Scripture debate where the pros and cons would cite their scriptural proof for their position. I am not interested in such debate. My interest is in the motivating factors that lead people to one position or the other.

Is the Bible Your Idol? 0

Posted on June 22, 2017 by Alexander

Do you substitute the Bible for God?

I first proposed this thought in a forum. I should not have been surprised at the out cry of some responses but I was also delighted by those who understood my intention: that is, not to diminish the wonder of the Bible but to point out how it can become an idol that replaces God.

That the Bible can become an idol should not surprise anyone who walks with Christ. Consider the Jews. They prance the scroll of the Torah around their synagogue service no different than Hindus carrying carved idols of Krishna. Even some of the Messianic Jews, who know the truth of Jesus, prance the scroll of the Torah around their congregation in like fashion. This is also true of some Protestants. One of the forum readers made this comment:

“Some of us are old enough to remember when the expectation was that the Bible be treated as sacred and holy. You washed your hands before you handled it. It was to be on the top of any stack of books. It was to be displayed and not hidden away in a drawer or cabinet. The pages were not to be soiled or smudged.”

All Denominations are Heresy 4

Christ Divided.jpg

Heresy Divides the Body of Christ

I have been called a heretic (by Catholics twice) with the implication that I have spoken in error. That is the generally accepted meaning of the term, but it is not the etymological meaning.  Strong’s definition of the Greek word translated as heresy in the New Testament is, hairesis (G139), meaning “a choice” as in a group, thus implying “disunion”. It is derived from aihreomai (G138) which means to take for one’s self or prefer. It is also translated as “sect”. It does not mean error or being wrong.  Thayer’s definition includes the idea of  capturing or forcing others to a group.  Biblical heresy means one thing: creating division in the body of Christ so that separate camps are set up and the unity of love towards all believers is undermined.

1976 book on Khazar Jewry

I just finished reading and collating into a PDF book, Arthur Koestler’s 1976 manuscript entitled, “The Thirteenth Tribe.”   There are many websites that speak of the Khazar Jews and their history, but this book best explains the story.  Koestler is a Hungarian Jew, which makes him a Khazar Jew, as well.  His work is not a condemnation but an honest look at world wide Jewry, which divides into 10% Sephardic (i.e., Spanish)  and 90% Ashkenazi (i.e., Russian), of which those Ashkenazi Jews are Khazars from the gentile tribe descended from Japheth and not Shem.  Koestler draws upon original and second hand manuscripts from Arabic, Jewish, Russian, Byzantium, Spanish and English documents. The Khazars come from the Russian steppes of Turkmenistan and settled between the Black and Caspian Seas, which today is Georgia and Ukraine.

A Different Look at Romans 13 9

Posted on June 11, 2016 by Alexander
roman jews.jpeg

Most of the Christians that Paul wrote to the Romans were Jewish believers.

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service. 2 And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1 & 2

We are all influenced by the world and the way of thinking of the world. For many Americans this is the result of government education, corporate advertising, media propaganda and the various disciplines of science that has established themselves as the gods of our age. Therefore our reading of the Bible tends to be influenced by these worldly influences and it takes deliberate effort to discern the truth of Scripture. Reading the Bible alone will not transform your mind. There are thousands of Jehovah Witnesses and Mormons who do not know Christ.  Renewing our minds come from reading the Bible by spiritual discernment.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.   But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.(1Co 2:14  & 15)

Legalism is the heart of natural thinking. Legalism is the means of self-justification. James tells us that if we break one commandment we have broken them all (James 2:10). But legalism tells us that if we do one good thing, we are good in all things. Through our narrow definition of goodness, we judge others according to our own standard. If we see others fail in one thing, we condemn them as utterly worthless. How unlike our King who believes we are worth saving no matter what we have done. Legalism turns us into hypocrites.

Legalism makes right and wrong a game. Lawyers are a prime example of what I mean. They do not care about what is right or wrong, only what is legal. Natural thinking seeks only for the benefit of self. We are awash in our culture in this kind of thinking.

The influence of natural thinking distorts both our reading of Scriptures and affects the way godly men translate the Scriptures. We need to read the Bible through the eyes of Christ.  Since He is the King, we assume he is like a worldly king, and he is not. Jesus does not “rule” by force. He rules by example and is the standard we are to compare ourselves by. Jesus changes us just as a good marriage changes both partners. We love one another in marriage, so defer to one another. We love Jesus and defer to his good example because we want to please him and to be like him. Read the rest of this entry →
