Pharisees Hid the Truth. Mystery Babylon Secret Societies, part 3 - Pastor David




.


A key characteristic of secret society members is that they will deceive the common people of key truth, especially the truth of how to obtain eternal salvation; rather, they will keep this truth to themselves, as a means of power and privilege. Jesus spoke directly to this terrible situation in Luke 11:52, "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered." The teachers and lawyers of the Law knew the simple truth that God had developed for people to be saved for eternity and to develop a love for Him. Yet, they hid this simple truth from the people, substituting the terribly suffocating system of daily rules of living against which Jesus so railed.

Matthew 23:27-28 says, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so, ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and uncleanness." The Pharisee had cleverly and effectively hidden the existence of these Satanic beliefs from their subjects, but could not hide it from the Omniscient Eyes of Jesus who is God.

Since the Pharisees believed man to be inherently good, they developed a system of salvation based upon works. This system of works was later to be called the Talmud; however, Jesus kept referring to it as the "Traditions of Men". The Bible clearly teaches, however, that man is inherently evil; therefore, there is absolutely no way that man can perform enough good works to completely atone for his evil. Jesus left no doubt that the Pharisees had concocted this system of works.

Both Pagan and true Judaic scholars were looking for a Messiah King to arise to lead mankind into new spiritual light and a new material prosperity. However, the pagans of the secret societies were looking for a Promised Redeemer which was far different than what the Bible taught was to come. Consequently, the people were badly misinformed as to what the true Redeemer was going to accomplish. They were looking for the King Redeemer, not ever being told that much Messianic prophecy was "Suffering Servant". They were looking for a King, but they got a Suffering Servant, and the vast majority missed Him!

You Gotta BELIEVE: To Every One That Believeth, Romans 10:4 - Pastor David




.


1. You must accept Christ as your Savior
2. You must Accept Christ as your LORD
3. You must accept Christ into your heart
4. You must receive God's gift of Salvation
5. You must Ask Christ into your heart
6. You must Receive Christ into your heart
7. You must repent of your sins
8. You must repent and then accept Christ into your heart
9. You must accept Jesus into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior

ETC ETC ETC...It goes on and on. Who knows what that all means anyway!

To become a Child of God, a member of the Body of Christ...YOU MUST, YOU HAVE TO...BELIEVE. BELIEVE the Record in God's Word that God gave of His Son.

In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation.

The fact is, that by the work of God, (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit), there has been accomplished and there is available: for any and every sinner who BELIEVES the record that God gave of His Son, an accomplished redemption, a perfect salvation. And we shall see by the same Divine authority the further fact that this perfect salvation can be had by the believing sinner without any additional work, religious endeavor or church ceremony.

The righteousness of God has been made available for any one who will believe the truth of God. "Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." Romans 10:4-5.

And to believe means: that upon which a man or woman is prepared to act. Or to put it more simply: believe is to accept as true, to accept as real! You are not Saved if you are secretly NOT believing the record God gave of His Son

THEN let us BELIEVE the fact...that is, "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

So there you have it!

Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.

Kabbalah Infiltrates Judaism. Mystery Babylon Secret Societies, part 2 - Pastor David




.



Realize, that TWO systems of Jewish oral teachings were created, one public and one secret. In the many centuries before the LORD Jesus Christ came in the flesh, this deadly virus penetrated Jewish religious leaders. These Jewish leaders were dabbling in the occult. A Jewish secret oral tradition began to be developed and put forward, distinctly separate from God's WRITTEN Word. The public teaching dealt with the affairs of everyday life, such as laws on buying and selling and making contracts, and what constituted work on the Sabbath; this practical law was later called the Talmud. The LORD Jesus strongly railed against these man-made laws upon the people, because it bound them so tightly to the priests. And, these standards were not from God; they were man-made so that the priests could control the people.

So, here we have, the Jewish priesthood, formulating a plan to bring all Jewish people into spiritual and physical bondage by creating this dual system of the public Talmud plus the very secret Kabbalah. The teachings of the public Talmud bound the people by almost 1,000 rules of everyday living and it began to move them away from the spiritual truth that God had revealed to Moses. Thus, an important requirement of a Mystery Babylon Secret Society was fulfilled: that of hiding the Truth from the people...partly by outright fabrication and partly by adding to God's Law.

Since Satan is the "lord of this World" he has the power to prosper those who follow and worship him. This was the bait that attracted those Jewish religious leaders to the Kabbalah. And, make no mistake about the fact that these Jewish leaders prospered greatly. Even though Israel was suffering under the bondage of Gentile rulers, such as Greece and Rome, the Jewish priests won a certain autonomy which enabled them to virtually rule dictatorially over their Jewish citizens. And, the common Jewish citizen simply did not understand that these religious leaders had foisted upon them a system which simultaneously put them under a yoke of bondage while elevating these leaders to positions of great power and wealth. And, the depth of misunderstanding was so great that the average Jewish citizen still greatly admired and honored these religious leaders who were so afflicting them.

Mystery Babylon Secret Societies, part 1 - Pastor David




.




Secret societies can be traced back to the Satanic king of ancient Babylon, Nimrod. They were established after Nimrod was executed for the crime of publicly reinstating witchcraft and idolatry. To preserve this Satanic worship a secret system of Satanism had to be established.

Through secret societies, the Babylonian system of Satanism was preserved. From this system, Anti-Christ will arise, and will try to destroy God's system, as has been the plan from the beginning. Please watch this very important video message.

The Great Red Dragon...the Woman's Enemy. Revelation 12:3-4 - Pastor David




.




Revelation 12:3, “And another sign was seen in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems”.

This "sign" also is seen "in heaven," and we are not left in any doubt as to what it signifies. Revelation 12:9 explains to us that "the great red dragon" is "that old serpent called the Devil (Slanderer) and Satan (Adversary)." He has seven heads and ten horns, and upon his heads seven diadems. These are the "signs" of the universality of earthly dominion: for Satan is the "prince of the power of the air" (Ephesians 2:2), "the prince of this world" (John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11). As such, the Lord did not dispute his claim (Luke 4:5-7). His colour is the colour of fire, and of blood. This is a "sign" of his cruelty and blood-thirstiness (John 8:44. 1 John 3:12), and of the war which he makes "in heaven" and "on earth." The heads and horns and crowns are manifestly the "sign" of earthly power, gathered up in him: for to whomsoever he will he gives or delegates it (Luke 4:6-7; Revelation 13:2). Here briefly is the authority and power of the woman's enemy set before us.

Revelation 12:4, “And his tail draggeth down the third part of the stars of heaven, and he cast them to the earth”.

So we have seen, “The Woman” is the "sign" of the Nation of Israel as a whole; and the object and action of the Devil could not be more clearly stated.

But HERE in Revelation 12:4, we are again taken BACK to the beginning of things; to Satan's first rebellion, and to the angels who fell with him. This is surely the "sign" of Satan's power among the angels; as the heads and horns are a "sign" of his power among men on the earth. It seems clear from this that the third part of angels followed him in his great rebellion.

Vindication of God's Primal Promise and Coming Judgment - Pastor David




.




And so it came to pass that today, (as we saw in our video entitled, "Woman and Child. Revelation 12:2"), Coma Berenice (the hair of Berenice), sits in the place of the woman and child..."the Desire of all nations." But long before the constellation had been changed, its real signification had been lost and perverted.

Naturally, when the promises and prophecies had been written down in the Scriptures of Truth, the meaning of the signs and constellations, and the very names by which God had called the stars, would fall into a state of disuse or inactivity, and became gradually forgotten. This would lead to the easy perversion of their meaning by those nations who did not possess the Word of God. Hence this constellation of the "woman and child" passed into the Babylonian and Egyptian mysteries under the names of "Isis and Horus"; and then, from the pagan mysteries, the picture passed into Romanism, with many other symbols and doctrines.

So closely is Romanism allied to Paganism, of which it is the outcome, that those who do not see the difference between Paganized Christianity and Bible Christianity, draw the false conclusion that Romanism is merely a corruption of Christianity, whereas it is little more than Christianized Paganism. Hence it was that, the real meaning of "the woman and child" having been lost, the symbol was then Paganized, and it is now believed that representations of it as being "Isis and Horus" were so common, long prior to Christianity, that "there was not a house where it was not found."

THEN, many of these Pagan symbols, rites, and ceremonies were brought INTO "Christianity" by the Greek “church” Fathers, who were converts from Paganism, and had not renounced or lost their teaching and training. So NOW, what we have here, in Revelation 12 is the fact that God is going right back to the beginning, and in spite of all the opposition of Satan and the perversion of Primitive Truth by paganism, He is showing us His purpose in this closing book of Inspiration, which is to take us back to the causes of the great Apostacy, and onward through the great Apostacy, which is close upon us, to its final confusion and destruction.

This is why we have, here, GOD’s vindication of those "Signs" by which He first promulgated His great primeval promise, and His own Revelation as to its final accomplishment in the crushing of the serpent's head.

Ok, it is clear, so far, that the woman is the "sign" of Israel, viewed as representing the nation as a whole. Israel is thus personified, with the marks, which characterize the nation in its constitution and in its hope.

Having now given the great "sign" of the "woman," we next have "another sign in heaven", the woman's enemy.

Satan's Flood. Revelation 12:15-17 - Pastor David




.



The Dragon, as soon as he is cast down to the earth, and LIMITED to the earth and the sea, at once proceeds to make war with the Woman, and the remnant of her seed...

"And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ."

Coming Judgment of God and Perversion of God's Primal Promise - Pastor David

.

These twelve stars, constellations, are thus associated with Israel in the persons of Jacob, and the twelve Patriarchs. These constituted and represented the whole nation in embryo. Their presence here in Revelation 12 tells us that God is about to reveal His own truth, to expose the foolishness of all the devices of the heathen, expose their false use of His own handiwork; and, as He smote "the gods of Egypt" when He delivered Israel then, Jeremiah 43:12-13 and Jeremiah 46:20, so, when He is about to deliver Israel again, He will execute His judgment on the gods of the heathen, by showing that their perversions of His primal promise will not affect its fulfillment; but all their mythological gods, the paleidians, the ascended masters, channeled spirits, and consciounesses, the aliens, all that garbage that people are worshipping today, shall be helpless and useless to deliver them out of His hand.

Now, I have to bring this up here. Why at this point do disillusioned expositors bring up The Body of Christ and try to introduce it here?

These commentators say "the whole symbolism points to it." WHAT?!? On the contrary, the only like symbol in the whole Bible connects this woman, as she is here arrayed, with Israel. What has the Body of Christ got to do with Genesis 37? Are we to look for the Body of Christ there? If not, then why look for it here, in Revelation 12. Jacob, his wife and his twelve sons, may well be taken as a most fitting interpretation of the sign of the sun, moon and twelve stars: but the Body of Christ has no connection whatsoever with these.

Further, Israel is again and again compared to a woman, and a married woman, in the Old Testament, as we see in Isaiah 44, etc. Also, in her time of rejection, she is compared to a widow (Isaiah 47, Lamentations 1:1, Luke 18); and a divorced woman (Isaiah 50, and Jeremiah 3); but not the Body of Christ. And nothing of what follows can be anywhere properly understood to be the Body of Christ, the Mystery. Now, if you have been following the videos of the Lion and Lamb Ministry, then you are fully aware, that we believe that the Body of Christ, The Mystery, is Raptured or Harpazo’d before the pages of The Book of Revelation even open. That this Book is concerned with Israel and NOT with the Mystery, The Body of Christ is sure. Look, if you re-read all of the Apostle Paul's letters, praying as you do, the word "MYSTERY" will keep jumping out at you...Ephesians 3:2..."If ye have heard of the DISPENSATION of the grace of God which is given ME to you-ward", and Ephesians 3:5..."Which in OTHER ages was not made known unto the sons of men", and Ephesians 3:9..."And to make all men see what is the fellowship (the DISPENSATION) of the Mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ". Like a lightning bolt this will became clear.

You see, this Age of Grace that we are currently in, is an "ANOMALY" in the Prophetic Timeline Plan. No one...not Satan, the Principalities, Demons, Rulers in High Places, NO ONE, saw it coming. Only God Himself, within whom it was hid. 1 Corinthians 2:7-8..."But we speak the wisdom of God in a Mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: which none of the PRINCIPALITIES of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory."

Ahh, The Age of Grace! Satan hates Grace. Can't fight Grace. You can trip people up all day in Religion. Trying to follow The Law...Satan can work with that. Can't work with Grace though. Satan has worked hard through the centuries, to try and get Grace brought under the Law. Starting immediately with the message of Grace from the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul. We see that with the Galatians. But the Spirit tells us through Paul in Romans 11:6..."And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work."

So here it is....The Mystery is that God is forming a joint Body of Jews and Gentiles, saved and brought together by Grace through Faith, which is the Body of the BrideGROOM, The LORD Jesus Christ!! Once the last person of the BrideGROOM's Body is in, the ANOMALY will be removed (by the Rapture/Harpazo) and the Prophetic time line for Israel will resume, unabated. So There you have it.

Fallen Angels are NOT the sons of God. Genesis 6 - Pastor David




.




In the Garden of Eden, the FIRST one judged is Satan...as he is the one that initiated the transgression. We do not find a similar action toward "fallen angels" in Genesis 6.

Let's read Genesis 6:1-8:

"AND it came to pass, when MEN began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God, (those of the lineage of Adam...laid out in chapter 5 the very preceding Chapter), saw the daughters of MEN, (those of the lineage of Cain...laid out in Chapter 4), that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with MAN, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God, (those of the lineage of Adam...laid out in chapter 5), came in unto the daughters of MEN, (those of the lineage of Cain...laid out in Chapter 4), and they bare children to them, the same became mighty MEN which were of old, MEN of renown.

And God saw that the wickedness of MAN was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made MAN on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy MAN whom I have created from the face of the earth; both MAN, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.

But Noah, (a man), found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Genesis 6:1-8

So...WHERE, tell me WHERE, does it say anything about Angels...Fallen or otherwise. All I see, is MAN MAN MAN MAN MEN and MAN. Again, in the Garden of Eden, the FIRST one judged is Satan, ("that Old Serpent" Revelation 12:9), as he is the one that initiated the transgression. We do NOT find a similar action toward "fallen angels" in Genesis 6.

Here is the deception...NO ANGEL is a "son" of God. That angels are "sons of God" IS the lie.

God has ONE Son. Men are given power to BECOME the sons of God by believing in God's ONE Son, the LORD Jesus Christ, and then they are IN Christ, God's ONE and only Son. "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name" John 1:12

This, "fallen angels sleeping with women", is just another imagination from the pit of the abyss to make these fallen ones seem bigger than they are. And THAT is it.
