Baal arch now in New York

palmyra2I don’t know what’s worse – for Baal to randomly appear in the smoke of the burning Trade Centre tower, or his gate to be deliberately installed in New York.  By his gate, I mean a replica of the Arch of Triumph from Palmyra Syria that was in London in April.  It’s now been erected in City Hall Park,  the heart of the financial district on September 19, 2016.

The tacky 3-D printed thing previously stood in Trafalgar square London for three days and nights in April 2016.   I wonder if it’s going to be lit up with the eerie red floodlights they used in London? See Modern day Baal worship, playing with fire.

This plate was on the ground near the arch.

Here’s a warning that predates that arch by centuries; “Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it” Leviticus 26.

The original arch led to a temple dedicated to the Mesopotamian god Bel (or Baal).  Does the public know that this god was associated with child sacrifice?

And this is what God said about child sacrifice through the prophet Jeremiah;They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal—something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind.” Jeremiah 19:5

Bel or Baal was so repugnant in the Bible that in the time of the prophet Hosea (mid-8th century BC) the use of the term Baal was often replaced by the contemptuous boshet (“shame”).  Source: Baal, Ancient deity

The Darkness Of The City Lights

How times have changed.  In 1956 a huge cross adorned the NY Empire State Building at Easter.  In 2015 the Hindu God Kali glared down from the same building. 

Apparently, Kali was meant to convince people to worship and revere “Mother Nature.”  I can’t figure that one out.  It was probably a reference to population control because the globalists believe we need to be culled.

In Sanskrit, Kali means “she who is black” or “she who is death.” One of Kali’s four arms carries a trident.  She should feel right at home at the World Trade Centre – the twin towers were replaced with a complex in the shape of a trident.

Kali specifically wears “a necklace of heads, a skirt of arms, a lolling tongue, and brandishes a knife dripping with blood.”  If it had been put up there in relation to Planned Parenthood I would have understood it immediately.

Obama declared the US was “not a Christian nation … not ‘just’ a Christian nation, but Jewish, Moslem, Buddhist, Hindu, and a nation of non-believers.”

But there’s a scripture in 1 Kings 18:20-40. that asks “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him,” [and go to hell.] 

The politically correct want all religions to be the same and for a nation’s cultural and religious identity to fit that ideal.  But not all religions are the same.  Sooner or later we’re going to have to wake up to that and choose between gods.  On one hand, we’ve got a God who sacrificed Himself for us – while Bel, Baal, Kali, and crew exult in human and animal sacrifice from us.  To me, it’s a no-brainer.

220 years before, to the day …

On September 19th, 1796 George Washington wrote a letter to the “The People of the United States of America.”  For 122 years his Farewell Address was read in the US House of Representatives until they abandoned the practice in 1984.

“One of the most referenced parts of Washington’s letter was his strong support of the importance of religion and morality in not only promoting private and public happiness but also in promoting the political prosperity of the nation.  He argues that religious principles promote the protection of property, reputation, and life that are the foundations of justice. Washington goes so far as to say that the nation’s morality cannot be maintained without religion.

He argues that religious principles promote the protection of property, reputation, and life that are the foundations of justice. Washington goes so far as to say that the nation’s morality cannot be maintained without religion and, since morality is necessary in popularly elected governments, religious principle is vital in maintaining the popularly elected government of the United States.”

The Magi’s gifts – safeguarded for over 2000 years

gifts_magiHere’s something to think about when you’re opening your Christmas presents.  Did you know the gifts of the Magi, the wise men are intact and safeguarded in a monastery in Greece?

The custodian of the priceless gifts is the Monastery of St. Paul, one of twenty monasteries on the Mount Athos peninsula.  Source: http://orthodoxwiki.org/St._Paul’s_Monastery_%28Athos%29

They were given to the Monastery by the widow of a sultan.

In the first century Mary gave them to the Jerusalem Church. They were located there until the year 400. Later, the Byzantine Emperor Arcardius translated them to Constantinople and placed them in the Hagia Sophia church. In 1453, Constantinople fell. In 1470 the daughter of the Serbian ruler George Brankovich, Maria (Maro), who was the widow of the Turkish sultan Murat (Murada) II (1404–1451), gave the Gifts of the Magi to the Monastery of St. Paul, which was Serbian until 1744. Despite the fact that she was the wife of a sultan she did not accept Islam and remained a Christian until the end of her life.  Source: Fr.

The gifts are gold pieces with the original frankincense and myrrh beads sown on to them.

The gold is in the form of 28 pieces of carefully engraved coins of different shapes. Each coin has a different design of different and complex artistry. The frankincense and myrrh take the form of mixtures in the form of 62 roughly spherical beads the size of a small olive.

The wise men, who they were, and why the biblical account holds water

Caravane_Marco_Polo

The Magi were the wise men, the king makers.  No Persian was ever able to become king unless he was approved of and crowned by them.

Herod was really upset when the Magi rode into Jerusalem with their entourage after the birth of Jesus.  They’d made a journey of over 1000 miles to worship the King of the Jews.  And that title did not belong to Herod.

Being astronomers, they knew about the coming King and the constellation where his star would arise, from knowledge handed down by the prophet Daniel in Babylon.

Their story is preserved in Matthew 2.   This is an account that holds water; in other words it stacks up to scrutiny.  Their resting place is preserved in the account of Marco Polo, the famous 13th century Venetian explorer.  He claimed that he was shown the three tombs of the Magi at Saveh south of Tehran in the 1270s:

“In Persia is the city of Saveh, from which the Three Magi set out when they went to worship Jesus Christ; and in this city they are buried, in three very large and beautiful monuments, side by side. And above them there is a square building, carefully kept. The bodies are still entire, with hair and beard remaining. One of these was called Jaspar, the second Melchior, and the third Balthasar.”

wisemen“Messer Marco Polo asked a great many questions of the people of that city as to those three Magi, but never one could he find that knew aught of the matter, except that these were three kings who were buried there in days of old.
However at a place three days’ journey distant he heard of what I am going to tell you. he found a village there by the name Cala Ataperistan, which is to say, “The castle of the Fire Worshippers”. And the name is rightly applied, for the people there do worship fire, and I will tell you why.
They relate that in old times three kings of that country went away to worship a prophet that was born, and they carried with them three manner of offerings, Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh; in order to ascertain whether that prophet were God, or and earthly King, or a Physician. For, said they, if he take the Gold, then he is an earthly King; if he take the incense then he is God; if he takes Myrrh he is a Physician.”

Persia is now modern day Iran, and Tehran is to the north of Saveh.

The ground that can’t hold water

Another legend about Saveh is the Lake of Saveh. It is a lake which is said to have been located near the city.  According to the legend mentioned in historical Persian texts, this lake dried out on the night of the birth of Muhammad, Islam’s prophet …

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saveh

Muhammed came along about 600 years later.  Rejecting Christ, he founded Islam, declaring Judaism and Christianity were “wrong.”  I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether his claims hold water.  If I don’t blog again before Christmas, I wish you a happy Christmas.  And may you walk with the wise.  “He that walks with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Proverbs 13:20

The prophet Jeremiah wrote: “LORD, you are the hope of Israel; all who forsake you will be put to shame. Those who turn away from you will be written in the dust because they have forsaken the LORD, the spring of living water.” Jeremiah 17:13

Signs from the Papacy

Does lightning strike twice?

Lightning strikes twiceWhen Roman Emperor Nero committed suicide in AD 68, a 120 foot high painting of him in the gardens of Maius, four kilometers away, was destroyed by a bolt of lightning  … on the same day.

Nero was infamously known as the Emperor who “fiddled while Rome burned.”  He blamed the Christians for Rome burning, and had many of them thrown to the wild beasts or crucified. He also burned them to death at night, where they served as ‘lighting’ in his gardens, while he mingled among the watching crowds.  It is this brutal persecution which immortalized Nero as the first Antichrist in the eyes of the Christian church.

The lightning bolt is associated with Lucifer, who Jesus saw fall Emperor-Ratzingerfrom heaven like lightning.  It’s also a symbol for Zeus (who is the same entity as Lucifer).  The symbol was used in the swastika (turn the Z’s around) and in the Waffen SS.

Which brings us to the modern-day Roman Emperor.  When the last Pope suddenly resigned, a lightning bolt hit St Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican repeatedly.

I think there’s more to that sudden resignation than we’re being told.  But I don’t think Ratzinger went to Hollywood.

Cool Pope

Pope Francis, the latest Roman Emperor, is very popular.   He looks gentler and softer than the previous Pope.

Here’s Pope Francis being promoted in this kid’s cartoon by Fox.  But see the lightning bolts on his sunglasses?  Interesting.  My daughter tells me I’m seeing too much into that, she says the lightning bolts are simply used in cartoons to denote reflections.

The sign of the hammer and sickle

The Pope will be addressing the U.S. congress on the day the French Foreign Minister warned we’d have ‘climate chaos’.  The next day the Pope will be addressing the U.N. when it launches its ‘sustainable development’ agenda for the world.

Sustainable development” is a communist buzzword that means population control, which is not what the Pope should be about, unless he’s changing the Roman Catholic church’s stance on family planning, amongst other things.  Religion should have nothing to do with Agenda 21.

No wonder president Morales of Bolivia, himself an Atheist Marxist, clearly seemed to think the Pope would be pleased with a hammer and sickle crucifix.

After The Pope has spoken at the UN and Congress this month, he leaves for Rome on the eve of the last blood moon.  I see a bad moon arising.

Let’s see what he’s got planned.  He may look like a lamb but he’s speaking like a dragon.

Noah’s ark mentioned in 1st century book

Flavius JosephusDid you know that 2,000 years ago people could go and see the remains of Noah’s Ark?  I found the reference in a book from the 1st Century by a Jewish historian named Flavious Josephus, which I am reading at the moment.

This is what I read from Chapter 2 of his book, Antiquities of the Jews:

“But when Monobazus was grown old, and saw that he had but a little time to live, he had a mind to come to the sight of his son before he died. So he sent for him, and embraced him after the most affectionate manner, and bestowed on him the country called Carra; it was a soil that bare ammomum in great plenty: there are also in it the remains of that ark, wherein it is related that Noah escaped the deluge, and where they are still shewn to such as are desirous to see them.”   Josephus – Antiquities of the Jews, Chapter 2.

I downloaded it as an eBook.  It can be read here: http://penelope.uchicago.edu/josephus/ant-20.html

The land of Carra is in the Armenian region of Turkey.

Were you taught this at school I wonder?

Noah, fact or fiction?

NoahThe film Noah has spiked a massive reading of Genesis 6 worldwide.  I didn’t expect it to follow the Bible, after all, it is Hollywood.  I watched the film so I could write about it afterwards.  After answering my 22 year old’s questions about Noah, I’ve decided to do a quick Q & A about the facts of Genesis 6.

Q. How did Noah build the ark in time to survive the flood?
A. Noah had a long life, compared to our paltry 70-80 years.  So he would have had years to build the ark.  The Bible doesn’t say how long it took.  All it does say was “After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.”  He was 600 years old when he went into the ark.  Before the angels mixed themselves with the daughters of men, people lived for centuries.  God shortened the life span of human beings in Noah’s life time.  After the flood, the life span decreased to about 120 years.
Genesis 6:1 When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.
Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

Q. Who were the “sons of God”?
A. They were fallen angels, the Watchers.  Their offspring were called “the Nephilim”.  It’s a strange story but I trust it because it’s recorded in the Bible.  The ancients had more to do with angels than we do, and I think God’s told them not to interfere with us.
Genesis The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

Q. Who was Noah?
A. God was forced to destroy His creation, but Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.  Why did God pick Noah?  I have heard a theory that Noah and his family were the last ones left with pure human DNA.  The Bible records that  Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

MiautsoQ. Is there any record of this lineage?
A. Yes, their lineage is recorded in Genesis 10, The Table of Nations.  I’m going to focus on Japheth, whom I (and all of Europe) are descended from.  This lineage is confirmed in royal genealogies, ancient books, manuscripts, place names, and oral traditions.  I recommend a book called “After the Flood” by Bill Cooper.  It is a fascinating book on European history and the lineage of ancient Kings, through the line of Japheth. The Miaotsu (Hmong) people of China, are also descended from him.

Q. How could all of the animals have fit in the ark?
A. The key was two of every ‘kind‘.  God created using ‘kinds’ with plenty of room for adaptation within species.  The definition of kind is “a category of things distinguished by some common characteristic or quality“; e.g. canine, feline, equine, bovine, avian, etc.  There were thousands of animals, not millions. The larger species may have been juveniles. Some of them would have hibernated.
19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them.”

The three storied ark was about the height of a 3 storied building, and the length of 1 and ½ football fields.  Here are the specs God gave Noah for the ark:
14 So make yourself an ark of cypresswood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.16 Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubit high all around.  Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks.
Length: 300 cubits (450 feet, or 135 meters)
Width: 50 cubits (75 feet, or 22.5 meters);
Height: 30 cubits (45 feet, or 13.5 meters).

Q. Is there any archeological proof that the ark existed?
A. Yes, but its hidden – just as the genealogies from Noah have been hidden.  The ark and location of Naxuan, the town of Noah, is in the foothills of Ararat in the Armenian region of Turkey.  The ark grounded on the mountains (plural) of Ararat – not Mount Ararat itself.  The original Armenian place names of that area preserve old meanings like ‘Noah’s Village’, ‘First Vineyard’, ‘House of Shem’ (Noah’s son), ‘First Market Town’ , ‘Place of First Descent’ & ‘Valley of the EIGHT, but the original place names were changed after the Armenians were massacared.

The world’s first winepress was discovered in the area in 2011.  I’m not saying this was the vineyard that Noah planted, but it agrees with the place name ‘First Vineyard’.
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/01/110111-oldest-wine-press-making-winery-armenia-science-ucla/
Genesis 9:20 Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. 21 When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.  I don’t think anyone would blame him for getting drunk after what they went through.

Q. Do other cultures have flood legends?
A. Yes, and many have preserved the name of Noah.
http://www.talkorigins.org/faqs/flood-myths.html

The evidence of the flood is all around us, if we have the eyes to see it.  There are fossils everywhere, from the rapid burial of creatures.  Also 70% of Earth’s surface is covered by water.  Where did it come from?Children of Noah

Our DNA is 99.98% the same, and science has proved we all come from the same stock.  That should end racism once and for all.

By the way, when God told Joshua to wipe out the  seven nations of Canaan – these were giants, descendants of the Nephilim.  He wasn’t being an evil, vengeful God.  He needed  to clear the giants out of the promised land.  From Israel, the race that He created to settle the land of Canaan, came the Messiah.  Its something to think about this Easter.

Godzone?

Seddon God's Own countryGodzone is derived from the term “God’s own country”. 
“God’s Own Country” was a phrase often used and popularised by New Zealand’s longest serving prime minister, Richard John Seddon. 

There’s more about him in my last post when I talked about the Seddon earthquakes that rocked the capital in 2013, on the eve of the change to NZ’s marriage laws.

I’m dismayed at all the social engineering that has gone on, especially under former prime minister Helen Clark (now 3rd in charge at the UN), and our current PM John Key, (a former Merrill Lynch Banker who did a brief stint at the Federal Reserve).

As a New Zealander I do not feel like I have a voice as far as our government and media are concerned.

In 2007 Helen Clark signed NZ up to the UN ‘Alliance of Civilisations’ – declaring that NZ had no “established religion”.  The “interfaith dialogue” took place at Waitangi, NZ’s birthplace.   She ignored the country’s heritage, and Islam’s aspirations under ‘Dar al-Islam , where Islam and Sharia law will trump the host country’s religion and laws if it is allowed to become dominant.

It just needs a weak western government with bad morals, no belief in Christianity, and concessions to Islam under the name of “multi-culturalism”.  Anyway that’s just part of the rot that has set in.

The good thing about being a Christian in NZ is the freedom that Christianity brought.  I can wholeheartedly agree with the words of our national anthem.
