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.
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 →
The singularity is an expression coined by mathematician John Von Neuman in 1958 describing the “ever accelerating progress of technology and changes in the mode of human life”. Ray Kurzweil believes this means that artificial intelligence (AI) of computers will reach a point that the human mind and personality can be programmed completely within it to such a point that a person can have immortality living within a machine. The Borg of Star Trek the Next Generation fantasized this to such a point that people lost their individuality as they became part of the collective consciousness of the Borg machinery.
As I understand Kursweil’s dream, he wants to translate his mind and life into a computer program that would then allow him to live forever in a machine. I am trying to understand this both from a secular point of view and a Christian point of view. From a secular point of view the physics law of entropy is ignored. Everything is in a state of decay. Machines rust out and break down all the time. This dream of his presumes on a perpetual ability to repair and maintain the machinery of his Borg existence. Read the rest of this entry →
For the last 3 months I have read and converted Ferdinand Lundberg’s book, “America’s 60 Families” into a PDF e-book. I found an online copy that had been scanned which contained multiple errors, specifically in scanning the tables. To remedy these problems I purchased the book and went through page by page to make the corrections. The project is now done and available for public reading.
Since the text is in a document format, pages have been marked “[book page #]” to correspond to the printed book pages. This should facilitate quoting and referencing those quotes. It also keeps the index accurate. The only editorial difference is that I did not break up paragraphs by the book page. Thus the reference could be half a paragraph off. I also eliminated the endnotes and moved them to footnotes for reading convenience. His footnotes marked by an * (asterisk) have been left intact.
Why Should Christians Read this Book?
Because the book of Revelations makes it clear that the one world government will be formed by financial means.
And it causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand, or in their foreheads, even that not any might buy or sell except those having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. (Rev. 13:16 & 17)
This is how Satan through the rich has been forming his one world government. The United States was not formed to protect the people. All the states were sovereign and independent already. They agreed to come under a federal government for economic benefits, just as the European Union has attempted to do the same. Read the rest of this entry →
Mat 4:8 – 11
Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
The Governments of the World
The usual understanding of this verse is that we are to worship God. What is overlooked is that when Satan offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world, Jesus did not refute Satan in his authority to give him the kingdoms of the world. In other words, all governments belong to to Satan.
This creates a contradiction in doctrine. We are routinely told to “obey all governments” based upon Romans 13:1 & 2 which says
Rom 13:1 – 2 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
If Satan owns all the kingdoms of the world, are we being told by Paul to obey Satan because God has ordained Satan to rule the world? Any thinking person will realize that would be utter nonsense to think that way.
In an earlier post I wrote about the physical law of entropy being not only the “curse” but the continuation of sin. The Lake of Fire, in my opinion, is not punishment from God, but the continuation of decomposition that we already experience through aging then, finally, physical death. It is decomposition in the spirit. Our human spirits are made of divine substance, according to the Bible, called, “the breath of life” (Gen. 2:7). This substance breathed into the nostrils of Adam came from God, therefore is everlasting. But our spirits became corrupted because of Adam’s sin, along with degeneration through the generations, compounded by our own sins. While the human spirit can not completely die, it will continue in corruption of decomposition in the Lake of Fire. This is our choice when we reject the gospel, which (as Wayne Jacobsen likes to say) is the cure. If you reject the cure, then you retain the disease.
My point in that post was to encourage everyone that this is not the wrath of God (I am not denying that God has wrath), but the Lake of Fire is the consequence of our own choices if we reject the gift of life in Christ. God’s wrath has already been poured out on sin through Jesus on the cross. Furthermore, I want the reader to understand that the fall of Adam affected the entire universe, whereas the redemption of Christ also affects the entire universe. This, then, is the purpose of this post. Read the rest of this entry →
All Christians who take the Bible seriously know that a global government is being forced upon us all. Regrettably, most of these same believers scoff at the idea of a conspiracy. Yet one has to be in complete denial to think that this move towards a global government is either an accident or a natural development of mankind. The powers that lie behind governments have successfully conditioned many into thinking that those who declare that a conspiracy is underway are either insane or such simpletons to believe that a small group of people can control the whole world.
What makes their case acceptable to so many is that they imagine a conspiracy to be run by a small band of evil villains of comic book quality. But the people working towards a global government, and especially those who are positions of power, are not comic book villains. They are outwardly nice people. Indeed, they consider themselves to be good people working for the betterment of all the world, as only they are able to conceive it. Read the rest of this entry →
The Tea Party movement almost drew me back into political involvements again. I stopped voting after I realized that the federal agenda of dominating every aspect of American life and 16 years of Clinton and Bush had shown that it made no difference which party was in power. What got my attention to the Tea Party was the genuine grass roots source of the movement. This was not another party run by professional politicians, but moms and dads of all faiths and backgrounds expressing their fears over the federal government’s complete disregard for the will of the people. All America, except for about 25%, now see that the federal government has no regard for the Constitution upon which it was formed. Read the rest of this entry →
I had made reference to the economic situation in Iceland in the 3 posts, beginning with “The Elephant in the Room” , followed by, “Integrity Amidst Corporate Evil“, then again with “Ethics or Morals“. I never felt that I have done justice to the reason for mentioning Iceland in all those posts.
So, in this post, I want to share where I got my information so you can read on this further. The main point, is that the 14 trillion dollar American debt is a fraud forced on the American people that does not belong to the American people and should not be paid. Some of the debt is legitimate, but most is not. The people of Iceland refused to pay a similar fraud foisted upon them, as well.
I first came across this story in an article by R.D Bradshaw who has been writing a series called, “The Goldsmiths” for the Gold Seek website. Mr. Bradshaw has been explaining the actions of the banking cabal throughout this series. The discussion on Iceland is found in his post # CXXXVII. After reading so much about the banking/corporate control of nations through the economy that was discouraging, I found this lengthy post to be hopeful. Read the rest of this entry →
There is no difference between the meanings of the two words, ethics and morality from an etymological view. They are from two different languages: ethics being a Greek word, and morality being a Latin word, which means manner and customs of people. Ethics, however, carries the additional connotation of internal standards because of Aristotles’s philosophical treaties on ethics, “Nicomachean Ethics“. Morals, on the other hand, tends to lean in meaning towards the mores of a people or the outward manners and customs of a people just as the word customs is the root to the word costume.
The technical distinctions aside, words have a predominant meaning by the current usage. In deed, most words are used by people without regard to the etymological meaning. For example, the word “blessed” has moved beyond Christian usage and is used by people of all faiths to mean privileged and favored, with happy circumstances. The etymology of blessed is uniquely Christian, however, because it literally means “blood-covered” (bled-sion) and comes from Medieval Catholicism. To be covered in the blood means to be in covenant with God through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Consequently, such a covenant brings favor and privilege in happy circumstances. But the word is used without any regard to its origin.
Likewise, I wish to elaborate on the deeper differences between our subconscious usage of the words “ethics” and “morality” which merit having two different words from two different languages grafted into English usage. Ethics, in my opinion, leans more towards decisions of the conscience, whereas morals leans towards accepted public opinions and customs. As such, ethics are expressions of God’s will, and morals are the expression of man’s will. Read the rest of this entry →
