Spiritual Warfare - Online Bible Studies & Bible Study Tools — Crossroad of  Truth

What is about to be revealed will be met with a lot of backlash, however, the time has come to know ALL THE TRUTH and ALL OF THE FACTS. We are in a spiritual warfare and many have eyes wide open to see all of it. Many more have been spared this type of truth for fear people could not handle it. The same as they fear they cannot handle the truth about human and child trafficking. The reason the masses are so lukewarm is by design. A design of mind control no one would have suspected for it comes from within the government and from their very own pulbits. The ones they pay taxes to and tithe a tenth to before they give their offerings. The devil dances and laughs as he rules the world from his dimension of fainting darkness. The light is shining into the secret lairs of his puppets brighter, and brighter each day. Hide the truth and they have blind sheep that can be led right into the wolves ovens the same as a witch lured Hansel and Gretel. It’s time to wake up for God’s Kingdom is coming, he shall be victorious and you must be awake to be a part of it!

The Lord’s Church and The Spiritual Warfare

As many already are aware we are at war with the swamp and the swamp has infiltrated everything, including the churches.  The swamp is the breeding ground of evil built of miry clay. The same miry clay written in the book of Daniel.  It is the feet and toes of the statue in King Nebuchadnezzar’s  dream. This dream was interpreted by Daniel and now in these days, we are watching the fulfillment of it as we watch the feet and toes made of iron and clay for they do not mix. Miry clay is defined in the dictionary as a SWAMP!  It is defined in the Lexicon as Miry clay. —The word translated “clay” (comp. Psalm 69:2) is from a root meaning to boil up, or ferment. (One of its derivatives means “wine.”) Hence “froth,” or “slime.” So here we are at the fulfillment of the book of Daniel. So what does this mean?

In Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, the king saw a gigantic statue made of four metals, from its head of gold to its feet of mingled iron and clay; as he watched, a stone “not cut by human hands” hit the feet of miry clay and iron and destroyed the statue and became a mountain filling the whole world. Daniel interpreted the dream to the king. He said that the statue represented four successive kingdoms beginning with Babylon, while the stone and mountain signified a kingdom established by God which would never be destroyed nor given to another people.

Truth that Matters - Zero Point Spirituality

This is where we are right now. The swamp made of miry clay and iron versus God’s people. It is Biblical and in the end, it is written that God’s people win. This stone uncut by human hands will strike the feet and toes made of iron and clay and break in pieces the statue of gold, silver, bronze, iron, and feet of iron and clay!

In its’ place will be a new kingdom  – not made with human hands….this is God’s kingdom that resides inside each one who believes in the Lord.  You cannot say here it is or there it is for it is in you. And it will emerge one by one as God’s people awake and drain the swamp!

Daniel 2: 34-35:  34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Jesus the Chosen Stone

That stone is Christ our Lord. The cornerstone of the church.  It is time to stand up for God’s true word and stop allowing merchandisers to lead the congregations. It is time to take back God’s house of prayer and kick out the den of thieves. This is the message to the churches and always has been, with the promise that God’s Kingdom is coming and it shall be and all the empires of this world, led by the devil himself, shall not prevail against God’s Kingdom that is coming! While man writes dogma and decides what is orthodox and what is not… the deceit and lies abound. For they shout, thus saith the Lord and the Lord never said it!

Most all churches today can trace back to the Roman Catholic Church and its’ doctrines of devils. This was not made from or of those called out. These were devised to take those called out, “the ecclesia of Christ” and herd them into a manmade doctrine of devils that took God’s word and mingled it with miry clay of iron (Rome) and called it Christianity. This was never formed by the Lord, nor the Apostles, nor the first followers of the way. This was formed by those who sought to control the masses through religious dogma. And they did just that.

Through the years, they, just like the swamp in D.C. and the new world order cabal, took over little by little through stealth and deceit. They took over generation by generation until the lukewarm church took over the majority.  Each one in Christ need to take a good hard look at the true history of the church. When you do, your eyes will shed the scales of deceit and you will see how you have been controlled by manmade dogma and a list of interpretations that have bred anger and discord among God’s people who all believe in salvation of the Lord. They have turned God’s word into a manmade  religion with manmade interpretations to control the thoughts and actions of the masses with all the dogma of a secret society.  Congregations are taught not to question the pastor’s authority, nor any of their manmade doctrines. Many are controlled and funded by the swamp of which they sit on their councils and think tanks, finding ways to move the masses into tiny gates of thinking. Robbing not only themselves, but all those they convert of the richness and glory of Gods true words and guiding of the Holy Spirit that resides within each who receive the Lord.

Daniel 2:41-45: 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. 45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

It is important to note…we are not instructed by the word of God to go out on witch hunts, nor go out to sleigh one another because of a difference of beliefs and interpretations … we are to come out from her my people. To not partake in the manmade dogmas nor be led by false shepherds.  It is up to each to discern and to make a difference among their own congregations. To pray and come out from false interpretations and come back to the word of God – search the scriptures for yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in understanding. One by one…God’s people shall know the truth and the truth shall set them free!

Isaiah 28: 8-13 8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean. 9Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little: 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. 12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear. 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Most have no idea they are joined to congregations built upon the things of miry clay. They have no idea of the misleading that has transpired little by little and at times in big broad steps.

The Clarion Call has gone forth. Who shall hear it?

Isaiah 28:14- 14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. 15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: 16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. 19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

That stone uncut by human hands is the Lord, the foundation stone, tried stone, precious corner stone, a sure foundation – he that believeth shall not make haste – judgement is lay to the line! It is now aimed at the feet and the toes of miry clay and hurling toward it fast!  Awake, open your eyes and see!

Isaiah 28:20-22 20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it. 21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. 22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

Isaiah 29: 9-15 9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. 10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. 11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

In this video, Listen to a true account of how the Church has been infiltrated by the same ones who infiltrated the United States Government.


Many people have been aware of this government program for years, and have told others and the truth fell on deaf ears. These programs surfaced during Hurricane Katrina and many watched in horror as the Media covered it up as fast as they could.  Still many Pastors come forward to blow the whistle on the nationwide FEMA program which is training Pastors and other religious representatives to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation. There used to be maps of where mass grave sites were located across America. I found the one for my city on line before they were all scrubbed. It is all very real, regardless of who the messenger is. Just reference Government programs such as REX 84, and Operation Garden Plot. Very real, and done under the Reagan Administration, which I suspect was actually instigated under VP George H. Bush (Sherff). Oliver North was ordered to format the operations. https://www.baptistboard.com/threads/fema-recruiting-pastors-to-prepare-for-martial-law.9832/

Operation Garden Plot is “the program to control the population.”

“Operation Garden Plot is the code name for the use of coordinated military action in law enforcement at any time during a civil disturbance within the fifty states, District of Columbia, and possessions and territories The operation of the FBI’s COINTELPRO Domestic Counter Intelligence Program, FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency, and JTTF Joint Terror Task Force, all give the government the authority to step in and immediately crush any civil disturbance or turmoil which might occur. Civil disturbances are defined as riots, acts of violence, insurrection, unlawful obstruction or assemblage, or other disorders prejudicial to public law and order.”  The Pastor Program is designed for them to work closely with FEMA to carry out such operations. https://www.incpu.org/articles/FEMA_camps_on_US_soil.pdf

World Council Of Churches

New World Order Church Swamp….

Founded in 1948 the World Council of Churches (WCC), is an international, interdenominational fellowship of Christian churches that was proclaimed “a fellowship of churches which accept our Lord Jesus Christ as God and Savior” at the 1948 inaugural assembly. Based in the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva, Switzerland, they are made up of some “350 member churches who together represent more than half a billion Christians around the world.”

WCC member churches can be found in all regions of the world and include most of the world’s Orthodox churches (Eastern and Oriental), as well as African Instituted, Anglican, Assyrian, Baptist, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mennonite, Methodist, Moravian, Old-Catholic, Pentecostal, Reformed, United/Uniting and Free/Independent churches, Disciples of Christ and Friends (Quakers).

The Encyclopedia Britannica says “The WCC is not a church, nor does it issue orders or directions to the churches. It works for the unity and renewal of the Christian denominations and offers them a forum in which they may work together in the spirit of tolerance and mutual understanding.And, in their own words, (Emphasis added)- All WCC programs aim to support the member churches and ecumenical partners to journey together, promoting justice and peace in our world as an expression of faith in the Triune God. http://inplainsite.org/html/world_council_of_churches.html

It is time to come out from the swamp of miry clay and proclaim God’s Kingdom.

Isaiah 30:13-14 13Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant. 14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.

May we all come forward in the name of ushering in the Kingdom of God, in truth and in his Word. For this is the task set before all those who love the Lord. Amen. For God so loved the WORLD that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV

    Ezekiel 37:4-8
    4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.
    5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
    6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
    7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.
    8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

    Job 10:11
    Thou hast clothed me with skin and flesh, and hast fenced me with bones and sinews.

    Ezekiel 37:9-12
    9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
    10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.
    11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
    12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

    Matthew 16:18
    And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

    For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

    Good thoughts. Just so you know, the WCC does not control the Independent Baptist church (and probably others). That’s the point of being called independent, because there is no hierarchy other than the Word of God. Now, the interpretation of the Word is up for debate among the different denominations, as it was in Paul’s day.

    Have we let man’s traditions rule? Yes, as in the order of service, which is kind of universal among most of the churches I have attended. Two songs, one standing, the other sitting, then a prayer, the offering, another song, etc. all before the sermon starts. And of course, the 501(c)3 registration, along with insurance promoted by a salesman who has convinced the pastors that it is needed to protect the church from everything from the invasion of the LGBT crowd to a zombie apocalypse.

    When I was a kid, we barely spoke above a whisper when we entered the building and no one EVER spoke during the message. That was a form of worship, to be in the right frame of mind to hear a Holy Spirit filled message that would stir the soul. Now, it’s to the point that before we get to church, I pray for the Spirit to be there with us and that in every church in the country that the preacher would preach the truth whether that is his intention or not.

    The last 2 verses that trnathens just posted are particularly appropriate.

    As I sit here to make a comment I’m asking the Lord for wisdom in order not to offend anyone; which is never my intent. I only share my feelings and thoughts regarding what I read on this blog. I am a Catholic woman who loves our Lord Jesus Christ. I follow only the traditional Magesterium of the Catholic Church not all this modern new age Catholicism.

    The Catholic Church has been infiltrated from within for centuries, but it must not be compared to the many Holy priest who are faithful to their vows before God and who are Very awake to the times we are living through. These are the good Shepard’s who are looking after their flock. They are the good ones.

    The deep Church exist just as the deep state does. However, we must be very careful not to confuse or mix the good Shepard’s with the wolfs. Only those of us “Remnants” can tell the difference between the two. Those of us who are living their faith in obedience to God and His commandments. There are many Catholics who are confused and can’t seem to see what’s right in front of them. My thoughts on that are that maybe they are not fully engaged in their faith or maybe they are not living in obedience to God. I don’t really know. Only God can see the hearts of men and make a judgement. All I can do is pray that God will open their eyes before its too late.

      Dianne, you mean well but your attack on the Catholic Church I fear is based on wrong theology. You might to do more research before you go against God himself. Most of what you are saying against the Catholic Church is your opinion only. Consider that the reason the Catholic Pope and some of their ministers might be so subverted is due to the Catholic Church truly being under attack precisely because it hold the truths of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church contains the weapons against Lucifer in its entirety.

      First Remember: Jesus called out Peter and said “Peter you are Rock and on this “Rock” I shall build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. That was the forming of the church called Catholic and Catholic means Universal. Peter was the first Pope and by who’s authority was he invested? Directly Jesus Christ by his own words that are available to us to read to this day. Do you think Jesus envisioned all the different factions of faith, that cannot be true. We do more damage fighting each other than if we who believe in Jesus Christ were on the same team and working on behalf of those who do not know Him as we were commissioned to do. Only the work of the devil has divided Jesus kingdom on earth. That should be your first clue.

      Jesus also did not say it would be perfect, as we all know how unperfect Peter was. That is probably Jesus’s perfect message. He did say the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. That’s a promise.

      Another way you might consider who the true church is…..Satanic worship only goes against the Catholic Church in its worship. It has a black mass right? That is where they take the Catholic Mass and tries to desecrate it. To my knowledge Satanic worship does not ever consider other religious gatherings as a threat. Only the Mass which is the celebration of the last supper where Jesus instructs his disciples to “Do this in memory of Me”. Where we believe that Jesus body and blood are once again provided on a daily basis to this new covenant. He said those who do not partake in that would not have “life within them”. This is just like manna was in the desert of the first covenant with the Jews. Jesus did leave us spiritual food to help us on our journey. There is so much more to that which I encourage you to check out. Like the time when Jesus was challenged by a throng of followers and he taught them that “unless you eat of my body and drink of my blood you will not have life within you”. It was such a hard teaching that he lost all of his followers that day except the 12 apostles. He did not call back to them and correct himself. He let them go. He meant what he said.

      Also we might want to be careful on how we address Jesus’s own mother. You actually compared her to women genitals at one point. This is not good. Mary, although not God, is the Eve of the new covenant. The one who in Luke tells God that she will obey his request to be the Mother of Jesus using her own free will choice to serve. This is the answer to Eves disobedience to God that got us kicked out of Garden of Eden. When Mary did this have you considered that at the moment Mary Conceived Jesus in her womb she became the actual Ark of the new covenant, as she begot Jesus in her own womb through the Holy Spirit. And you actually compared her to women’s genitalia? Although I realize that you probably mean well, this is still very very wrong information and I don’t want you to use your voice in error for so many people. When Jesus comes again do you want to answer to Him about your judgement on his mother? If you do not want to study what theology says about the mother of Christ first, maybe you should say nothing because you could mislead so many people with your opinion.

      Consider the wedding of Cana if you will. Here the Mother of God and God (Jesus) were attending a local wedding. Mary must have been someone important to the wedding couple because the Bible we both study says they came to her when they ran out of wine. They did not go to Jesus did you notice? This is a prefiguration of the times to come. When they came to her what was her direction? She told them to go to Jesus and do whatever he told them. This was the scene of Jesus’s first public miracle. He protested, but did as his mom said didn’t he? That’s Mary for you. She acts like the moon, she has no light of her own, but she always deflects to her Son Jesus. Also recall that at the foot of the cross was Mary and other women and the Bible tells us that John and Mary were in anguish beneath the cross when Jesus looked down. He said to John, behold your mother. He said to his mother, behold your son. Not only was this for the two of them as Mary lived out her life in Johns care. But consider our dear Lord who gave his Mother, whom he fashioned in perfection for her job on earth, to us as intercessors to Jesus himself. As she did at Cana she continues to this day to do for all of her children. Would you know better than God on this? He who created all, created the perfect answer to the fall of Eve. This creation and Jesus becoming human was exactly what led to the fall of Lucifer. Who do you think is the woman in revelations, but none other than the mother of Jesus.

      The Catholic Church is the church founded directly by Jesus. It traces its roots back to Him directly. It is considered a three legged stool, which is strength itself. It is based on Apostolic tradition, the 7 sacraments also instituted by Jesus while on earth and each one is in the Bible, and eventually the sacred word of God which includes the Old Testament and the New Testament which was at first passed down orally until the last of the apostles were on earth and then came the inspired writings. It was the council of Nicene that determined the books of the Bible originally. Yes, the Bible that is near to all of us started with Bishops and the Catholic Church. Remember that apostles thought the second coming of our Lord would be in their lifetime. It wasn’t though.

      So the three precepts that make the teaching of the Catholic Church: Apostolic tradition handed down directly from Jesus and his apostles, the 7 sacraments, baptism (John the Baptist and Jesus in the Jordan), Sacrament of Matrimony (the Wedding at Cana), The Holy Eucharist (Good Thursday and the last Supper), Confirmation (Pentecost, when Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to guide first the apostles after he was taken up into heaven and then for all of us), Holy Orders (when he called his apostles – they left family and wives to follow him) and the holy Mass.

      Let’s remember that the true church is the only one that the Devil would work so hard against. Not that others will not also be heaven bound, as this is all about a personal relationship with Christ. It’s just that Jesus himself left us all the tools to navigate this journey in the archives and tradition of the Universal Church – called Catholic. It has:

      The original Pope, Peter
      The original apostles
      The Catholic Church determined the original books of the Bible – Martin Luther changed it but only by taking out what did not support his new teaching)
      The gift of Mary as intercessor and eventual Queen of Heaven (remember Solomon and his Queen Mother)
      We were all together for thousands of years until Martin Luther came on the scene and the King of England who wanted to divorce his wife and could not because of the church.
      The 7 sacraments
      And is the only Church that traces all the way back to Jesus Christ himself, and not to any man.

      The Mass as done in the days of the first Christians gatherings with the Apostles where they gathered and broke bread) And at the command of Jesus who told us at the last supper who took bread and wine and broke it and proclaimed that “this is My Body, This is My blood” and to “DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME”. Which is only still enacted daily across the world in Catholic Churches. He did not say “this is LIKE my body, and this is LIKE my blood – did he? Hard teaching today as it was back in Jesus day but still is the truth. Again Manna was of the first covenant to feed God’s people, the Eucharist instituted by Jesus Christ on Holy Thursday can be considered the Manna of the 2nd Covenant instituted at Jesus Christ death and resurrection.

      The Catholic Church is in trouble only because of the attack on it from Hell itself and that should concern all of us. Lucifer does not attack that which does not threaten him! We should all gather and pray instead of assist in that attack. Then we should all work together to bring Jesus message to all people by our example, sacrifice and prayers.

      I mean well to all of you and join you in the seriousness of this battle. My prayers are with you as we confront together this enemy which is Satan!

      1. I have and was led to the truth. First of all Peter never went to Rome. He was to preach to Jerusalem and all Judeah. It was Simon Magnus who went to Rome to earn coin teaching the gospel. He performed great socery and wonders. Simon…not the Simon called Peter. It was Paul who went to Rome to preach to the Gentiles. Paul not Peter. It was not until the Council of Nicaea that the Catholic Church was formed. They called all the theologians known to gather and determine how to merge the gospel with the religion of Rome. Those attending were also the Arian faith. Arianism is a nontrinitarian branch of Christianity that asserted that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, created by God the Father, distinct from the Father and therefore subordinate to the Father. Arian teachings were first attributed to Arius and declared heretical by the First Council of Nicaea in 325. Manmade dogma surrounded the event as the Arians left in discust as the dogma had reached heights they could not agree with at all. What the council made was a religion glorifying the Pope as God on earth, and celebrations of all the soltices practiced in the groves of Baal, only adapted to be disquised as the traditions of Christ…man made traditions that today are still celebrated. The easter egg hunts are symbolic of the Queen of Heaven (same as they have elevated Mother Mary as the Queen of Heaven in its place) the egg hunt by Tammuz the son of Semiramis the wife of Nimrod and his reincarnation in the flesh… was a ritual performed where they sacrificed children on the alter of Baal and dyed the eggs in the blood of children and hid them so Tammuz could hunt them. The people shared in the hunt for blood dyed eggs and today the stores are filled with colored eggs and bunnies for Easter, which is the spring solitice and day of pagans. We have blended the ressurection of our Lord with Baal not knowing we did so. For we were never told the truth. I am not making this up, I am spreading the truth. Like I said, the truth is not for everyone. Each can pick and choose, reject it or accept it. But, it is the truth.

        Lori, I could never give a theological review and opinion on the history of the Catholic Church like you did. Wow!! You have done your homework and recited with precision your understanding of their theology… an impressive insight. While I could never do it, I can (& would like to) share my personal experience with that of the Catholic church. Your synopsis reminds me of why I left the Catholic faith. I grew up in a traditional Catholic family… 11 children, all of us went to our hometown Catholic school from Grades 1 through 8. I remember learning about all of the sacraments, making my first communion and going through catechism. I remember crowning the statue of the mother Mary in May with a wreath of flowers and holding my rosary, going to confession, and all the endless reciting of ritual prayers. So much ritualism…. extremely overwhelming ritualism… so much that the basic gospel message got buried, or lost, or overlooked. Please keep in mind that this is simply my memory as a young girl. I’m only stating my experience. During those young years, I never was offered the plan of salvation to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior.. Maybe I missed the offer somehow.. Or maybe all that ritualism distracted me from Jesus.. Or, maybe it was that the Catholic church told me I had to have an intercessor, other than Jesus. After all, I was told that only the priest during confession could absolve me from my sins. Anyways, it’s a long story and was a long journey to make my way out of Catholicism and into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ… No more priests at confession. No more seeking Mary.. I go straight to Jesus now. I am grateful for how the Catholic church taught me to value faith, and I credit it for instilling a commitment to seek Jesus in a deeper relationship. But, back to your summary… there’s one other huge thing weighing on me about it. At the start of your comment, you mentioned this: “…the Catholic Church truly being under attack precisely because it hold the truths of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church contains the weapons against Lucifer in its entirety.”. Ok Lori, but when I read this, is all I can think about and I cannot get past is this…. All the thousands of young alter boys who have been brutally sexually abused by priests…AND.. the absolute failure of the Catholic church to do enough to stop it, to bring justice for them, etc. In my opinion (which we all have one, I understand), maybe this is why the Catholic church is being attacked for this enormous black eye on them. They allowed this abuse to be pervasive for decades, and they were complicit in it through their non actions. My brothers were alter boys, but thankfully, they were never abused. No matter how beautifully stated I believe your historical recount is, Lori, I cannot get past picturing in my mind the victims who are now mostly adult men and the aftermath they daily live with. Again.. This is all just my experience and opinion. We all have one, and most of the time, it matters mostly just to us. Thanks for reading this. Jesus is both of our Lords. He is our common ground. Love to you, from your Catholic view to my former one.

      Yes we were invited to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Unfortunately we try to pass on the faith through a class, and that is not very successful. Faith is not taught, its caught. I caught mine from my baptist grandmother who loved the Lord and lived it everyday. Go figure. See we are all in this together and God wants all of us to work together to show the love of God the Father for us. I really never pursued my faith until I almost died of cancer at age 25, had very personal experiences with Jesus and then went on a hunt for the best way to worship my newfound personal Savior. . That’s when I began my investigation into who really had the truth. I was led by the Holy Spirit I believe because I did ask for that each step of the way. I was lazy when I was suppose to be learning about him as a youngster like you. So That learning only really preps us for our personal encounter which I believe we all have with a very Loving and Personal Savior, Father and Teacher (Son, Father, Holy Ghost). Then when we go back to it, we are ready for it. I’m still a student and always excited to learn!

      As for the problems with the priests….You would want to read about Bella Doud who in the 1930 and 1940’s was instrumental in breaching the Catholic Church with over 1100 men who were put into the priesthood by herself and she was representing and working for the Masons. It was an intentional undermining of the Catholic Church and most definitely led to the crisis of the priests and the homesexuality and the cover up as well. So clearly if they could create this scandal and discredit the voice of the Catholic Universal Church – they could lead many away from the truth. Read about it and many other attacks on the church which starts from without and makes its way to within – but that was biblical and prophesied as well. It tests our faith for sure….but if we continue that personal relationship with Jesus Christ, he really is the Way, The Truth and the Light. No one will be mislead when you look to Him first.

      Also I encourage you to walk into a Catholic Church – find the tabernacle and tell me you do not feel Jesus’s presence. Then walk into any other church and see if you feel the same way. Another personal way for each to see for themselves. You can walk into any Catholic Church at any time it is open if you mean to have a talk with Jesus. You should just be a follower of Jesus or someone questioning their own belief as concerns Him.

  6. First I heard about this, it was from Mark Taylor https://sordrescue.com/

    And then it dawned on me, Alger Hiss inspiring Stalin to reopen the churches, giving hope to the people while the Germans were invading the Soviet Union (it’s more about strategy than ideology). Catching the idea, Lavrenti Beria revamped an Orthodox Church, with fresh NKVD [KGB] priests, shortly after Trotsky has destroyed the heart of Russia, burning monasteries down, turning churches into stables.
    At a finger spin, Yaroslavsky was praising Dostoyevsky as a hater of Germans –

    But time allows for vicious wolves in shepherd clothes to turn. Especially when their theater was to play with the Holy Spirit in front of the masses, to fool them and snitch on them to the Ministry for the Security of the State -an institution paying their salaries.

    And how many of these snitches turned saints? About a handful. This is why Mark Taylor, referring to the FEMA-pastors, along with other swamp creatures, says no mercy.
    Because, like Stalin used faith for hope at a desperate moment, others would jump on the mercy waggon when finally realizing that FEMA was meant for their own asses.
    “A pit he hath prepared, and he diggeth it, And he falleth into a ditch he maketh.”

    A good read, about True Bread, and True Blood, is in John 6. All of it.
    How natural the Apostle catches the universal with the moment.
    How simple it is for man to perceive The Ever-Living.

    The biggest deception of the Catholic Church is that Christ built his church on a man, Peter. That deception is the foundation on which Rome lays claim to ownership of God, and ownership of the church.

    Here’s where the deception starts, and it is a deception swallowed by countless Godly bible teachers, who then constantly regurgitate the Vatican lie without thinking.-

    Matt16v18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades not will prevail against it.

    At first glance, it does seem that Jesus is going to build the church on Peter. But Jesus is actually making a subtle play on words, so subtle that it goes straight over our heads. But, remember that the disciples often argued who would be the greatest, and there is no way such a play on words would go over their heads.
    When Jesus says, “…you are PETER…” in the Greek, Peter is Petros, and Petros means a stone, or more accurately a loose stone or pebble.
    In contrast, when Jesus says, “….and on this ROCK…” in the Greek the word rock is Petra, a different word, meaning a mountain or cliff, and massively greater than the mere pebble that is Peter.

    Here’s Strong’s Concordance definitions of the 2 words. Note the subtle differences.-
    4074 PETROS (a masculine noun) – properly, a stone (pebble), such as a small rock found along a pathway. 4074 /PETROS (“small stone”) then stands in contrast to 4073 /PETRA (“cliff, boulder,” Abbott-Smith).

    “4074 (PETROS) is an isolated rock and 4073 (PETRA) is a cliff” (TDNT, 3, 100). “4074 (PETROS) always means a stone . . . such as a man may throw, . . . versus 4073 (PETRA), a projecting rock, cliff” (S. Zodhiates, Dict).

    So who might this projecting rock or cliff be?

    There is only one person constantly labelled as the “ROCK” in scripture, and that is Jehovah himself, the Messiah of Israel, and of course, Jesus himself.
    The label of “The Rock is constantly used throughout the Old Testament, and I challenge one and all to visit biblehub.com and search for any of the following word couples -God rock, redeemer rock, Jehovah rock, salvation rock, saviour rock, Israel rock, etc.

    Do that and you will see a wonderful array of proof verses, completely destroying the Roman Catholic heresy that Peter (plus all his Papal successors) is the rock.

    Here’s just a few examples.-
    Psalm78v35Then they remembered that God was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer.
    2Sam22v47“The LORD lives! Blessed be my Rock! Let God be exalted, The Rock of my salvation!
    Psalm18v2The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

    And if you want more proof of who the rock is, here’s what the New Testament says.-
    1Cor10v41Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 2all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3all ate the same spiritual food, 4and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.

    As can be seen,
    The Rock is God himself.
    The Rock is Christ himself.
    The Rock is our Redeemer.
    The Rock is our Fortress.
    The Rock is our Salvation.
    The Rock is our deliverer.

    And that Rock is NOT Peter the flawed apostle, a mere man.

    The claim that Peter is the Rock has been an outrageous poison in the church for well over a thousand years. It is a heresy that must be stamped out at every opportunity for the simple reason that every time it is repeated, it gives power to the antichrist to continue its deception over the church.
    And every time it is repeated, it displaces Christ as Head of the Body!

      So Peter is not the Rock? Who is he then? Are you saying that Jesus didn’t know what he was doing? I thought I read In the Bible that he reinstated Peter after he rose again when they went out fishing. Peter, He asked….do you Love Me? And 3 times he asked Peter to confirm his love for Jesus….this for each time Peter denied Jesus. After which he asked Peter to feed and lead his flock. Peter later died upside down on the cross at the end because he refused to be crucified as His leader Jesus. Peter most definitely led the first Christians not through his own strength, but that of the Holy Spirit. It’s all in Acts that we all believe right! He was most definitely the first Pope and most definitely gave his life to follow Jesus in a most spectacular manner. Don’t be so quick to discard this church…it is the only one that traces back to Jesus Christ directly. That’s why it is under attack and seems to be the only one under attack.

      Now i ask that we all stop attacking other Christians especially your Catholic brothers and sisters as we are all baptized in the name of Jesus and worship him devoutly just as you do even if we choose different methods. Let’s work together and bring our country back from the brink. That’s the only reason I am speaking up. I am a Catholic and I know clearly why I am Catholic. You are all followers of the same Jesus. I encourage you to simply go to your prayer closet and discuss this with our Lord before you continue to possibly teach error. We need unity – our Country is at stake.

        The very fact you ask such a question shows you are controlled by a “Doctrine of Demons” and those demons have blinded your mind!
        Your question should not be about who Peter is, but who is repeatedly identified in scripture as THE ROCK.
        As before, I challenge you to visit biblehub.com (or any similar bible search website) and search the following word pairs. Rock Jehovah, rock salvation, rock Christ, rock salvation,rock fortress, rock God, etc etc.
        If God is our Rock, Peter cannot be our rock.
        If Christ is our Rock, Peter cannot be our Rock

    How can you call that a deception. Then the Bible must also be a deception because that is directly where Jesus’s words are recorded saying that Cephas is Peter which means Rock. On this Rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it!


    1. If we finish reading the entire text and not take it out of context we see also in the next verses Jesus rebukes Peter and tells him to “get behind me Satan. for thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

      17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

      18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

      19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

      20Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

      21From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

      22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.

      23But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

      24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

      25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

      26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

      27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

      1. The Lord was speaking of himself as the rock, the cornerstone and upon all who believe each will be a pepple in the body of Christ. He spoke to all the disciples not just one. Peter was the first to say outloud that jesus was the son of God. All who believe and call upon the Holy Spirit have access to the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Any who favor the things that be of man versus that which is of God is an offence. Our shared issue is that we were taught wrongly the interpretations. Even when our own eyes and ears saw it in truth, we were censored by leaders in the church who we were taught to respect and many times chastised by the same and shamed for dare having another thought other than what was told and mandated as true. Today, God is exposing the falsehoods and waking up a sleeping church who has been wrongly led, poorly taught and fed lies as in the manner of fake news. Because of seeing the truth, people are opening their Bibles and seeking God in their lives asking for discernment of what is true and what was interpreted wrongly. The word of God will reveal all things when each searches the truth for themselves. Jesus said let no man interpret for you…search the scriptures for yourselves. The Holy Spirit shall guide you in your search. This is our promise. Each person has different questions, and different concerns…God is the one to ask the matter about and he will guide you to the answers you seek. I have been guided for mine…and I still have many questions and am searching for many answers. Never give up in the search for truth and never let anyone feed you other than the Holy Spirit. Others can guide you to the truth…each will find their own relationship with the Lord for he uses ALL WHO COME TO HIM. He has no prequalifications on who need come…all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. It is a hard thing to discover that something you have believed so much has not been true. I have discovered things that I truly believed as true and shared with others for over 30 years were no where to be found as true in the Bible. What the led me to do was to ask God to show me the truth and he showed me many things and continues to show me to this very day. He is now showing the nation what is true of their history…. none of us created the mischief, we were taught it. We had no reason to doubt its truth. Now we see and so, now we search for all the truth. It is all one and the same. God is waking his people called by his name in all areas that need restored. Not just one area. Amen.

        Just further proof that Jesus based his whole church on an imperfect man. Later Peter was reinstated as I mentioned before. Jesus asked him 3 times to commit to his love for Jesus. Then if you read, he asked Peter directly to feed and lead his flock. This just before he disappears into the heavens – sends the Holy Spirit and tells us he will come again.

        The Catholic Church was first based on apostolic tradition – in other words what the apostles did which you can find exactly in the Acts and in all Pauls letters. In fact a good part of the New Testament is exact instruction for the new Christians. The Bible only came when the apostles and first Christians realized that Jesus wasn’t coming back in their lifetime and were then some of the eyewitnesses were inspired to write everything down – thus creating your bible. That’s why we haven’t split into a million factions, we have apostolic tradition to clearly interpret what was meant in many cases.

        That means there was a time when all people who were baptized and were believers in Jesus Christ were all of the same denomination – the universal church. It doesn’t break off until Martin Luther – which is really very recent.

        Ask yourself where the Bible comes from? It traces back to Catholic Church, which again means universal including all. We are all in this together. Remember that Peter was the apostle for the Jews and Paul was the apostle for the Gentiles. But they work together for one cause – to spread the Good News of the gospel to all people so that we may all become residents of heaven for eternity together. That is still the Good News of all time and still what all of us are trying to do as we work to save our country! Let’s not chance friendly fire and focus on the enemy who is Satan and who leads this attack on our country. Let’s stand shoulder to shoulder and work hard to meet this true enemy.

        That’s my last comment on this…I agree and appreciate so much of the other information you share.

      Again Lori, you are peddling antichrist Catholic mythology.
      The Greek word for Peter does not mean a rock, but a loose pebble. The only Rock in scripture always refers to Jehovah or Christ.
      This NT scripture tells us that thousands of years before Peter existed, the called out gathering of God in the OT was built on Christ.The NT ekklesia was then added to that same assembly.

      1Cor10v1Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, 2all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3all ate the same spiritual food, 4and all drank the same spiritual drink.

      Go see what Satans black mass is about. He never attacks any other church but Catholic have you noticed? I wouldn’t want to be on Satans team and you might be with some of the things you are saying. You have my email if you would like to email me directly you are welcome to. Or simply ask Jesus himself – I am pretty sure if you ask Him for truth he wont hold back. I am not here to engage as an enemy, quite the contrary.

      The only church on earth that daily celebrates Jesus’s death and resurrection by doing the last supper exactly as Jesus requested is the Catholic Church. That doesn’t mean there aren’t bad players…there have been. Did you think Satan was just going to put up no fight at all? Check out the Masonic infiltration of the Catholic Church. They didn’t bother with any other denomination however. Why?

      You should not be at war with the Catholic Church – that wont help. No one set the Pope up at the head of that church except Jesus himself and it is in your bible directly. That might be a problem if we want to be heard in saving our country. This current Pope however may not be the true Pope (remember another one lives at the same time currently).

      Remember that when Jesus rose up to heaven in the Acts of the Apostles he said he would send a guide back and he did. Pentecost was the gift of the. Holy Spirit for the new church. That is a sacrament that each person receives in the Catholic faith and its called Confirmation when a young person becomes an adult and receives the gift of the Holy Spirit. As did Peter for that gift at Pentecost changed the whole group of apostles that day and it was said that Peter (who had recently even denied Jesus 3 times) was able to speak to all people and thousands were converted because of the same Holy Spirits guidance that still exists today.

      Mary is the Mother of the Word Incarnate – we know Him as Jesus who walked this earth. Does it make sense to any of you that Jesus would not know what he was doing when he created Mary? Could she possibly not be pure if she birthed the Son of God? Was she forced to bear Jesus, or asked by the Angel Gabriel? She had free choice and she sure set a good example as the first follower of Jesus when she took on that task! And she corrected Eve’s failure to obey our Lords command with her free will. She actually becomes the next human ark of the covenant when she was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit and became pregnant with Jesus. Let’s be careful with not recognizing her role. You have to admit at least it is interesting and has the ring of truth! At the very least please stop comparing the Mother of Jesus to a women’s vagina! you have to at least agree that wouldn’t be pleasing to any of you if your mother was compared to that. If you think He is truly coming again soon you might want to reconsider this point for sure. At least make reparation for comparing her to something so vile before Jesus comes back. She is meant to be a powerful Intercessor on our behalf and it seems that this powerful gift isn’t in your spiritual warfare arsenol as of yet. I may be a simple spirit but if she was good enough for Jesus, she is certainly good enough for me. I think we need her help as well – just like the wedding of Cana – Jesus did comply when His mother asked Him too. Don’t you think it couldn’t hurt to have her help now too? That is a simple biblical truth as well. Thanks for listening – before you bombard me with negativities – please ask Jesus yourselves about these truths.

        True…Line 19 is specifically where the Catholic Church gets its sacrament of penance from also called reconciliation. Jesus gave Peter the keys to bind sins on earth as in heaven. That was given to Jesus’s priests. It is a blessing in so many ways and brings much healing. Unlike our Protestant brothers and sisters who I count many friends with – when we confess our sins to a priest, who is standing in the place of Jesus Christ…we actually get to hear that we are forgiven….we don’t have to guess. That’s so awesome and healing! Thank you Jesus for this foresight to forgive us verbally.

        If you read about the early Christians – they had to confess their sins to the whole community before they could partake in the breaking of the bread. That is apostolic tradition again. Did you also know that once a Christian confesses their sins one to another or directly to the priest as Jesus established in line 19 above in Diane’s post the devil has no more opportunity to accuse the brethren on those sins that are confessed – only on the unconfessed ones! That is why there is so much misinformation on our sacrament of penance – it brings so much healing and was born directly of the Love of Jesus for all of us! Jesus is good and meant good with the Gift of his church!


      2. Not trying to bombard with negatives. But, I will try and explain the situation. The word Church means in Greek “Those called out”. So those called out made up those that followed the way of Jesus. They were called “Followers of the Way.” Jesus had followers of the way. He commissioned his disciples to go into the gentiles (which word meant nations) to share the gospel (which means good news), The good news was that the Lord had come, fulfilled prophecy and he has risen. He was the High priest by the order of Melchezideck and not the Temple Priesthood of Levi. He was the ultimate sacrifice sent by the Father. All things prior to his coming were a shadow of things to come. Jesus fulfilled all things. There was no more need for the Temple, for now we are the Temple and he resides in us, through the Holy Spirit. The Temple Holy of Holies was a shadow of things to come. Where the Holy Spirit of God resided. When the High Priest had a question that could not be answered, he would enter into the Holy of Holies to the Arc of the Covenant and present the question. Inside the high priests breastplate were the Urim and the Thummim.No one is sure what they were made of, they reprepresented pure light or the Holy Spirit. Which ever stone glowed in light that was the answer. One meant, yes and one meant no. Today, we are the Temple, Jesus said so…and the Holy Spirit resides in his believers. He promised that. And when we are not sure what to do…we are to ask the Holy Spirit and he shall guide us like the urim and the thummim. Only at all times. I call it the gut feeling. Today, they have discovered that the heart rules the intellect/brain, and we also have a second brain. That is found in the gut that tells the brain what to do – our inner instinct. When we listen to it…it always is true. Go against it and the outcome is not favorable. Same as the Holy of Holies at the time of the Temple before Christ came and fulfilled all things. When the Lord gave up his life on the cross the veil in the temple was torn from the top to the bottom and the stones fell in. The quaking of the entire city was felt. The graves were opened and souls that rested went about the city testifying all Jesus had done to free them from hades. Mathew 27:52. Jesus returned also after the third day and testified to many. Some the Bible tells us to as many as 500 at a time. Our Lord when he ascended sent the disciples back to the upper room with a promise to receive a special annointing of the Holy Spirit and they did. They received gifts of healing, tongues, etc. To prepare them to go out and share the gospel. Peter was to teach the people in Jerusalem and Judea for that was his command of the lord. Feed my sheep. All stayed and taught in the area until Jerusalem was seen surrounded by armies…as they were instructed. At that time they were to disperse and they did. All but Peter who was to teach in Judea. When this happened it was during the time of Saul who persecuted all the followers of the way. He oversaw the stoning of Stephen. It was when Saul was on his way to Damascas to deal with followers there that he was slain in the spirit and converted and Jesus named him Paul. Paul preached for three years in Arabia and ministered in Syria before he met Peter and James the Lord’s Brother in Jerusalem. Gal. 1:18–19. He pointed out the flaws of Peter when it came to Jewish customs Galations 2:11″But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. 12For before that certain came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them which were of the circumcision. 13And the other Jews dissembled likewise with him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their dissimulation. 14But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before them all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?” I point this out to show that Peters commission was throughout the land of the Jews and its area, and not to go to the gentiles (other nations) as others were directed to do. Paul who was Saul and of the Sahendren knew full well the customs of both the Jews and the other gentiles who lived in the region. He felt Peter had fallen back from what he was to teach and confronted him. The point is Peter never went to Rome. In Acts it speaks of Simon Magnus the sorcerer who sought to buy the Holy Spirit from Peter. 1:18:9 “9But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: 10To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. 11And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries. 12But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. 13Then Simon himself believed also.” in Acts 1:18- 18And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, 19Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. 20But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. 21Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. 22Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.
        In studing the history of Simon Magnus, he later left and went to Rome to preach and earn money through his new practice adding sorcery to work miracles. The accounts of early Christian writers, regarded Simon as the source of all heresies, particularly St. Justin who wrote about Simon about one hundred years after his life.[1][2]

        Simon Magus has been portrayed as both student and teacher of Dositheus, with followers who revered him as the Great Power of God. There were later accusations by Christians that he was a demon in human form, and he was specifically said to possess the ability to levitate and fly at will. sometimes he “darkly hinted” that he himself was Christ, calling himself the Standing One. Which name he used to indicate that he would stand for ever, and had no cause in him for bodily decay. He did not believe that the God who created the world was the highest, nor that the dead would rise. He denied Jerusalem, and introduced Mount Gerizim in its stead. In place of the Christ of the Christians he proclaimed himself; and the Law he allegorized in accordance with his own preconceptions. He did indeed preach righteousness and judgment to come: but this was merely a bait for the unwary. it was Dositheus who proclaimed Simon the founder of the Christian Faith and Church. The history goes that one day Dositheus felt Simon was a fake and when to strike him with a rod and the rod went through him. Fearing he was the son of God he asked him are you truley he? And Simon answered yes. After that Dositheus put him in charge of all his 30 men and bowed to Simon and served him. Simon gained reputation for being not only the head of the church but God on earth. This is the simon that the Romans believed was the rock of the church, not the real Simon named Peter. For no Romans ever knew of Peter. He never traveled there, nor into the nations for fame and reputation. Simon Magus was the beginnings of the sect of Simonians. The narrative goes on to say that Simon, told tales of falling in love with Helen, (of Trioy) and took her about with him, saying that she had come down into the world from the highest heavens, and was his mistress, inasmuch as she was Sophia, the mother of all. He taught such crazy things and the people believed his circus sorceries. Simon devised a system of worship that was a combination of myths and mixed it with Holy Words of God. Men said that God descended in the form of Simon Magus, to rescue his Ennoia, and to confer salvation upon men through knowledge of himself. “And on her account,” (Helen) he said, “did I come down; for this is that which is written in the Gospel ‘the lost sheep’.”
        He taught that the angels were mismanaging the world, owing to their individual lust for rule, so he had come to set things straight, and had descended under a changed form, likening himself to the Principalities and Powers through whom he passed, so that among men he appeared as a man, though he was not a man, and was thought to have suffered in Judaea, though he had not suffered. From all the lies and deceit from the sorcerer Simon….arose a following that thought he was the one upon the rock that God started his church. It was not Peter. At the council of Nicaea, you had theologians who revered the teachings of Simon and all manner of junk that was being taught by such who came out of these fables, as well as those that were taught differently who knew the Lord …it was a council of confusion and it was a struggle that ended up with many books deleted and few of the books of the scribes of Jesus getting into the book. But what we have explains the plan of salvation, and the old testament is what we still have, although book of Enoch, Jasher, Gad,Jubilees, and some others never made the volumne. Yet, many surfaced in the dead sea scrolls which were taken to the vatican vaults in 1948 and stayed there until 1989. I will end here…but, we have all been deceived in man made dogma. Not just the Catholic Church. However, all western religion was placed into one religion at the council of nicaea at that time and we ended up with worshiping Sophia queen of heaven, and soltices disguised as Christian feast days and changing times and laws. All manner of RESET took place. Yet, God’s word survived and the hell and torture performed by the Popes with their church and state ruling went through horrid blood shed of innocent people. No one was allowed to even possess a scripture for they were not a theologian and the only teaching they received was through the church in Latin. I tell you the truth. There is volumnes of this information, I have no need to make it up,nor do I even want to say such things…but they are true history. The actual wickedness done…I haven’t even mentioned. You can find that on your own. Just buy the Foxe Book of Martyres and read the history of the first followers. It used to be read as much as the Bible but today, most have no idea what it even is. God bless and the Lord is the way the truth and the light and he is forever.

      3. We are to confess our faults to one another, not our sins. If there is a problem, confess it and work it out. Man cannot forgive your sins, only Christ. Man can forgive your faults. If man could forgive sins, there would have been no need for Christ to have died on the cross. 1 Timothy 2:5 – For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    Sheila Holm’s message…. Go deeper with God. Amen & Hallelujah!! If we do, we will not aimlessly be led astray. We have the powerful indwelling Holy Spirit guiding us. If we could truly grasp the power that is within us, we will be changed forever. We have the same Holy Spirit in us that raised Jesus from the dead, the same Spirit that healed everyone who sought healing from Jesus, the same Spirit who multiplied 3 small loaves & 5 fishes (demonstrating we never need to lack), and the same Holy Spirit who will do this: “Whoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”. (Mark 11:23). Now more than ever as we move through this period of time, we must grab a hold of who we truly are in Christ. We can come boldly to the throne of grace. We are righteous, joint heirs with Jesus. And yes, I’m “preaching to the choir,” needing to remember this for myself, more than ever. Going deeper with God. Amen!

      This doesn’t make sense.
      Firstly, there is no blue star in your link.
      Secondly, in checking the Hebrew for that verse in biblehub.com, I can see no word even close to “Yowm”.
      Thirdly, Biblehub.com shows little difference between the KJV translation and many other translations of that verse.
      So you are right, this reader is utterly unaware of what was done by the translators, or what your point is.
      Please explain yourself a little clearer, and also give us a clue what connection your comment has with Dianne’s article.

    Hallelujah praise the Lord! Diane, you are right on! All we need is our connection with the Lord, and if you feel you are lacking in that regard…it is now time to ask Him to make that right. We are all here in this time for a reason. Keep your faith in Him because He will make it right. You can count on it. He works thru His servants. You may be one of His warriors. Faith can move mountains.

  11. I listened to Sheila Holm in the video titled “The Church & The Swamp”, as she described the Prophets, and the deaths that had occurred surrounding ministers, a thought struck me concerning Kim Clement and his early demise. I had recently run across this interview which took place more than a year before he died.

    His death as I understand it was a process of about a year. It became obvious to me that his testimony in this interview had made clear that he was recently being influenced greatly by this particular prophecy teacher. My question then becomes was this new influence in his thinking a factor in his death? Dianne, I know that you are busy, but you may want to hear this interview before you comment on this question. Appreciate you and your commitment to our Lord and His lordship over us.
