Understanding Mammon

Understanding Mammon

written by traveler

Considering how much Jesus had to say about this subject, it is a wonder why teaching about it from the pulpit is an unspoken taboo. The main point to grasp here is that mammon is the philosophy and governing principles behind the operations in the kingdom of Satan. The economic systems which we have adopted along with its privileged and social ramifications. It instills the opposite behaviors held up as desirable in the kingdom of God. It encourages self centeredness instead of God centeredness. Every other religion will promote the development of self, with self being responsible for their own development in reaching for the higher state of being. While in the kingdom of God it is impossible to earn ones own salvation in any way shape or form. It can only be given as a free gift for the asking. Mans natural reasoning will gravitate towards the principles of mammon because of our fallen state, which makes the learning and understanding of Godly principles something that requires the development of new lines of logic. This line of reasoning is not something that comes naturally to us. There is no shortage of new testament scriptures looking at this phenomenon, such as the one below.

Rom 8:5 For they that are according to the flesh, do mind the things of the flesh: but they that are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace:

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

And the solution to the problem being along the lines of this scripture below.

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Rom 12:3 For through the grace given to me, I say, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Jesus of course just stated the situation very plainly and bluntly as recorded in this verse below.

Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

To be noted here, is that Jesus referred to serving mammon as in competition to serving God. No matter how diplomatic you try to be, there is going to come a time where the rules of mammon and submission to Gods laws are going to be in opposition. Do you take the financial loss and obey God, or do you please the stock holders and take the money or the deal and run? But in reality mammon encompasses far more than just wealth. It also includes all the trappings of prestige, political power, influence, worldly respect and all else that places a person in high esteem over the common people in the form of brute power based on wealth, not acts of righteousness.

The kingdom of Satan also keeps close tabs on the distribution of mammon as well. Those who do not play their game will be stripped of mammon and reputation so as to render them the poor of the land. This is to pressure them into compliance or servitude. The specific demonic entities involved with this are Rimmon and Focalor. Interesting read if you look them up. Fortunately they can be bound by the saints using the authority we have in Christ.

The basic dictionary definition in Strongs concordance is as follows!

G3126

μαμμωνα?ς

mammōnas

mam-mo-nas’

Of Chaldee origin (confidence, that is, figuratively wealth, personified); mammonas, that is, avarice (deified): – mammon.

The control comes through the need to protect ones gains in the form of mammon. Worldly wisdom

dictates that reputation needs to be protected in the sight of others that also have the required reputations, even if the course of action denies justes to the poor of the land. We are coming into a time where those that mock God and Christ are held in high esteem. Pear pressure to conform will ensure the mockery of God grows. This is the laws of mammon in operation.

A good example of where this plays out is to be found in these verses;

Est 3:5 And when Haman saw that Mordecai bowed not, nor did him reverence, then was Haman full of wrath.

Est 3:6 And he thought scorn to lay hands on Mordecai alone; for they had shewed him the people of Mordecai: wherefore Haman sought to destroy all the Jews that were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus, even the people of Mordecai.

Haman was number two in the kingdom, He had lots of mammon and a great deal of pride to go along with it. When this Jew did not bow and tremble before him when he passed, Haman decided to kill off all the Jews in the land. He was to be feared and reverenced because of his station. As is the case of mammon in operation.

Fortunately the kings wife just happened to be a Jew and the daughter of Mordecai, so the Jews came through and Haman ended up on his own gallows.

This of course is the exact opposite of what Jesus taught;

Mat 20:25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them.

Mat 20:26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

Mat 20:27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Mat 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

This of course does create a challenge for us in that we have to live in a world that is governed by mammon, while we are supposed to be striving to uphold godly principles. Jesus, fortunately did give us some advice on how to handle this situation.

The fact is that our economic system is designed in such a way that the good guys will inevitably finish last and those that want to come in first no matter what will have to leave their godly principles behind so as to beat out the competition. The higher up the ladder you go in the worlds system the more you will have to exploit your fellow man and stretch the truth in order to accumulate wealth. Get enough of it and you may even stand a chance in politics where there is some real power to go along with it.

Now that leaves us in a bit of a problem. We want to pursue the things of God and lay up for ourselves some treasures in heaven but at the same time we have out of necessity to engage in worldly mammon in order to live. So the question is, How do we handle this. Well the first thing is to identify what belongs to the kingdom of God and what Belongs to the kingdom of this world in the form of mammon. The moment the two get mixed up everything gets corrupted.

Now Jesus did point out that there is a conflict of interest involved when dealing with mammon while attempting to also walk in the spirit. But he also pointed out that you need make a decision regarding which you want to serve. We do have two masters over us but we get to choose which we want to honour and which we want to despise.

However Jesus also gave some very good advice on how to handle the situation. And it is found in the context of the first verse quoted which is reproduced below.

Luk 16:9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.

Luk 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Luk 16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?

Luk 16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?

Luk 16:13 No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Luk 16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.

Luk 16:15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

Now right off the batt Jesus acknowledged that as far as our dealings with mammon are concerned we are probably going to fail as the doors of the world will tend to close to us. But he also cautioned that we are to deal faithfully with it as in a trust worthy manner.

But what Jesus also pointed out was that while you have it use it to make friends and alliances so that you will not be an offence to any and they will be willing to help you in the future in times when you will inevitably need the help. That way by remaining true to your Godly principles you will still be rewarded in other ways when the mammon of the world fails you.

Ezekiel 14: 12 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying, 13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: 14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD. 15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil F48 it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts: 16 Though these three men were in it, F49 as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate. 17 Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it: 18 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves. 19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast: 20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness. 21 For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? 22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it. 23 And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.

This judgment saith the Lord was upon Jerusalem in the days of the Babylonian Captivity. But I say unto you this same Judgment is upon any nation of people that sinneth against me by trespassing grievously. I have judged the nations, and I have brought judgment upon my church body. This nation of which is chief among the nations shall fall. Oh America, the first to feel the brunt of mine anger, I am bringing a nation, the rod of mine indignation against you. You hypocritical nation!

Isaiah 10: 1 Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write F58 grievousness which they have prescribed; 2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! 3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory? 4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

5 O F59 Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

(I have given the nations in whom I have judged into the hands of the Nation of Islam. This is what is meant by the Assyrian. My rod of indignation. As I set Pharaoh King of Egypt over my children, to show forth my greatness through Moses, and the ends of the Earth heard of the fame thereof of me. So am I going to use Assyria, the Rod of mine indignation to upset and overthrow in judgment.)

6 I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 7 Howbeit he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.

In this set of scripture above you see it expounded in Daniel whereby, saith the Lord, I will show unto you the word given to my prophet Daniel of the times and season that is to befall the world. I have written in the book of Daniel for all to know what is to befall the world and the end times. Hear ye this word, and meditate upon it, for it shall surely come to pass.

Daniel 11: 6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king’s daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times. (This is what is known as the Hoy Fahjid) 7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail: (The King of Assyria, the rod of mine indignation) 8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious F78 vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north. 9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land. 10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress. 11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand. (Assyria Defeated) 12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it. 13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after F79 certain years with a great army and with much riches. 14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers F80 of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall. 15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand. 16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious F81 land, which by his hand shall be consumed. 17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him. 18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him. 19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.

(The Antichrist, the evil one can be found in text after this set of scriptures. He will begin to come on the scene and flatter the people and say “Peace and Safety, Peace and Safety”)

In Isaiah 10 where we were previously saith the Lord we see that there is an over throw of the nation of Israel, into the hands of Islam. Here we see it in scripture:

Isaiah: 8 For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings? 9 Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus? 10 As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria; 11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols? 12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish F60 the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks. 13 For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant F61 man: 14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped. (The King of the South heart is lifted up) 15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it? as if the rod F62 should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood. 16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire. 17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day; 18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth. 19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, F63 that a child may write them.

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. 21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God. 22 For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness. 23 For the Lord GOD of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.

In these days, the days when the exiles shall be freed and just before the Antichrist shall come on the scene, shall I work a work saith the Lord, and the consumption that is decreed shall overflow, my act, my strange act, that causeth many to fall. There is a curse that may or may not come to pass at this time. It is the curse of Malachi:

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

The Prophet Elijah is that prophet that walks the Earth even today, but I tell you the spirit of Elijah is everywhere, proclaiming my prophetic words. It is as Isaiah 11 of the branch that is springing forth out of the roots of the Rod of the Stem of Jesse, overflowing in righteousness.

24 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt. 25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction. 26 And the LORD of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: (confusion and madness shall strike the enemy as it was in the day of Gideon and the Midianites) and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt. 27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. (overthrowing of Israel) 28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages: 29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled. 30 Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth. 31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee. 32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. 33 Behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, shall lop the bough with terror (consumption): and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the haughty shall be humbled. 34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

Amos 6:1

Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came ! (KJV with numbering system, note: see root meanings as well)

Whom do I speak of? And whom hath born the judgments therewith? America, the prominent one, whom is as a watchstation of the people. Whom watches over the nations as a policeman. The first to be shaken and taken of the Nations. This is whom I am referring.

2 Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border? 3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat F21 of violence to come near; 4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch F22 themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall; 5 That chant F23 to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David; 6 That drink wine F24 in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph. 7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.

8 The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein. 9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die. 10 And a man’s uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD. 11 For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, F25 and the little house with clefts. 12 Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock: 13 Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength? 14 But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river F26 of the wilderness.

And what more may I say my people? But this judgment has befallen the inhabitants of the land, because they have forsaken me, and have hewed them out cisterns that can hold no water. Their destruction has been in the making, because they refuse reproof. Because they consume my people like a moth consumes the cloth. Will I abate my anger against such as these? Shall I hear any more the prayer of the righteous in their behalf? For they have all become before me as chaff, that is about to be gathered and burned. I am with my people whom serve me out of love and an obedient heart. I am with you oh remnant whom shall overflow in righteousness, because of the anointing. For I will break the yoke of the Assyrian, and I shall lop the bough to the root of the tree, and cut asunder all man and beast that does not do all my will. For I have only called them to love me and to love their fellowman. I have called all to accept that light that which was brought into the world, my Son, Jesus the Messiah.

But they have chose to walk in their own craftiness. They have chosen to walk in darkness and have found delight in those things that oppose their own good. I am not to sit around and reward the wicked for their ways, but must needs bring the judgment that is set for their destruction before the great and terrible day of the Lord. A day of darkness and a day of gloom. Behold, I come saith the Lord, to take that which is mine. To take the kingdoms of the world into my possession which I purchased at Calvary’s Cross. Behold the Lamb that was slain, cometh with his angels and chariots, to bring you into your promised land and to establish my kingdom in righteousness.

I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

Why Christianity cannot embrace tolerance.

Why Christianity cannot embrace tolerance.

Written by Traveler
The Ideology of tolerance is in fact just the 2nd stage of a trap that has been laid not only for the church but the whole of humanity. It is a diabolical scheme to enslave the entire human race while separating it from the only real help it has. And the bait for the trap is an all inclusiveness that seems so good until the trap door closes and you find out just how much of the real poison the sweet shell of all inclusiveness really covers.

Rev 12:10 And I heard a great voice saying in Heaven, Now has come the salvation and power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony. And they did not love their soul until death.
Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and those tabernacling in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and in the sea! For the Devil came down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a little time.
Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who bore the man child .

The time of verse 12 has now started. We are the inhabitants of the earth. Woe to us. Satan has advanced in our societies to such a point that he has started to become welcome in a world that once held him at arms length like the parra he is. While the nation that brought forth the worlds redeemer is hated by all and those that are called by his name separated from the general population in the name of LOVE!

At this stage most are still shaking their heads to try and work out just what has happened as things have moved so quickly while others still have no idea that anything is happening. As events are still catching up to them. The first stage was so mild and insidious that it passed almost unnoticed but achieved its objective and now the second stage is in full swing because the power to resist is no longer there and the last stage will be the full blown dictatorship of the beast.

The words of God did leave us a cryptic clue concerning this trap in the scriptures that have been handed down to us. The words Tolerate and Tolerance are conspicuous by their absence. They are found nowhere in the original scriptures at all. But the word ‘tolerable’ is there as in “it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in that day”, Thus indicating that the word was in fact known but deliberately never used.

To understand how this trap works and how the entire human race can be enslaved under the iron fist of the Beasts dictatorship, while being cut off from its only source of power to resist, you first have to grasp satans objectives and weakness that he has to over come.

Satan is now here establishing himself because of this.

Rev 12:7 And there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels warring against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels warred,
Rev 12:8 but did not prevail. Nor was place found for them in Heaven any more.
Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, the old serpent called Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Satan basically has his back against the wall like a cornered animal. Earth is where tide and circumstance has played out as to where he is to make his last stand. But even earth is not under his full control. He cannot put up a defense to stave off the attacks against him from the outside unless he can secure his own home front and back. To do that he has to subdue the earth but the servants of the Lord are in the way. The only real thing in his favor is that the human life span is short and each generation has to relearn their lessons thus granting opportunity to subvert just two generations so as to break the status Que in his favor.

Now the saints are a threat to him because they have authority over him. But that authority is conditional. The saints have held that authority and been able to keep him in check and prevent his expansion ever since Calvary where this earth was redeemed back to the Kingdom of God. Hence the church has occupied until the return of this worlds rightful king. But that authority is conditional upon the saints remaining true to the principles that the kingdom stands for and in service to their Lord.

Each successive generation of human has to go through their own salvation experience where they pledge their allegiance and demonstrate their loyalty before they are given the authority of the kingdom to act as true ambassadors of Christ. They have to go through the stages of conviction, repentance and baptism but the confirmation from heaven is the baptism of the spirit which can only be given by God himself and this will not happen unless the new recruits of each successive generation understands what they are doing and what they are there for. If the church fails to train the new recruits properly then that baptism will not come. The authority is for signs and wonders as in miracles that are used to confirm the words spoken by the saints as blessed from the throne room of God. If what the saints teach and believe is not in line with kingdom principles as laid out in scripture then that baptism and the authority derived from it cannot be conferred upon the church. Thus the Church will loose its power and become easy prey for the forces of darkness.

If there is one thing that Satan wants it is a powerless church. As he is not able to come against the saints directly himself because of Christ the best way for him to achieve this objective is to get God himself to bring his judgments on the body and withhold his blessings. The only tool he has to accomplish this is to deceive the saints into sin and apposticy. Once isolated from the kingdom the church becomes his to play with.
This is not a new tactic. Satan did much the same thing with King Solomon in the old testament where he used diplomatic traditions to have king Solomon marry hundreds of pagan wives, thus distributing the sins of idolatry right from the nation of Israel’s Royal Family, culminating in the Babylonian captivity once the seeds of sin had grown into full bloom.

Like wise Satan laid his trap for the last days church in three stages so as to destroy its power and cement his control over the entire earth in preparation for the final last desperate battle of Armageddon.

The first step started with “did not God say”

That he wants to bless you, that you are to be the head and not the tail. That Christ is going to bless you according to his riches in glory. All these good things are yours for free, all you have to do is accept Jesus into your hart and act all spiritual.

You do not have to serve, you can be served instead. This is how you get God to bless you and do the things you want. Repentance is just legalism and belongs back then, you are under grace now and everything is a free gift. Of course all these blessings are mammon based and viewed from a worldly perspective. It is never taught the currency of the kingdom of heaven is the talents, as in skills, abilities. As it is Satan that has the control of mammon he sets up the doctrine of give to receive the hundred fold increase etc, so the churches that teach this do indeed receive a huge blessing in mammon. They gain the worldly power that money gives and soon start to dominate to the point where they gain the appearance of being the type of ministry that all should emulate. Gone is the freely received so freely give part.

Of course it is not long before the gifts of the spirit stop manifesting as it cannot confirm this teaching and the Holy Spirit in general starts to depart from these churches altogether with the result that more showmanship is required to make up for the obvious deficiencies. To put a lid on it even further there is the doctrine of positive confession introduced so if any person complains that this teaching does not seem to be working for them then it must be their fault because of their lack of faith and negative confession. The idea of faith is directed into an understanding of some kind of mystical magical force that make things happen for you so in effect God and Christ get cut out the equation altogether as the people try to visualize their own blessings in their own strength. Introduce a few religious demons in the right place and the persecutions start to manifest against all those that raise a voice in opposition from within the church body itself.

1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
1Ti 6:7 For we brought nothing into the world, and it is clear that we can carry nothing out.
1Ti 6:8 But having food and clothing, we will be content.
1Ti 6:9 But they who will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which plunge men into destruction and perdition.
1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all evils, of which some having lusted after, they were seduced from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1Ti 6:11 But you, O man of God, flee these things and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness.
1Ti 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith. Lay hold on eternal life, to which you are also called and have professed a good profession before many witnesses.

As you can see right there in the very scriptures that the Christian faith is supposed to be based on it is taught to not get caught up in the traps of mammon and worldly riches. Those in positions of leadership within the churches know that this is there but have deliberately chosen to not teach it. That the flock has followed after the wolf that tickled their ears is apparent to all that wanted to actually look.

Now if left to itself the pendulum would start to swing the other way as the body grasps that the prosperity teaching is not correct. We already see this with the growing number of out of church Christians, but this is Satan’s last push and he is going to take advantage of a church that is at its weakest point so as to push his lead in a final effort to destroy the church altogether.

Hence we come to the second phase.

One the one hand Satan has a church that has fallen for his deceptions and is in a state of disarray and for the most part lost its real spiritual power with most of its members in the wilderness. On the other hand he has the worlds political systems eating out the palm of his hand as they have lost their moral compass and any fear of God or his Sons body here on earth. After all there is little difference between the church and the world in general. In fact the sins in the church are just as bad as the sins of the rest of society in general. What politician is going to fear the wrath of a professional con artist, but they may respect the business model.

Now the one thing that Satan has to do is prevent the church from repenting and falling back into righteousness so as to regain its power and blessing of the Spirit of God! If that happens he will loose all the ground he has gained for another generation which he cannot allow to happen.

So what Satan has done is start up a social movement based on love, social justes and tolerance for diversity. All noble sounding causes but the subject matter chosen to Champion are the very ones that the Lords servants are not able to embrace. Hence an impasse is instantly created.

The Church itself now lacks the discernment that the Spirit is supposed to be able to provide simply because it is no longer there for the most part. The scriptures that are already subverted are simply subverted some more to the point where it becomes a case of prove that a sin is a sin where there is no repentance required and no condemnation and all is under grace because the law does not apply. Not to mention that there are so many new translations of the scriptures out there that no one seems to know which one applies and the original ones are twice the cost of the fake.

The now cooperate church was fast to succumb to this as they are based on mammon anyway and are concerned about dropping memberships and revenues. So to please the world the main line denominations embrace the sins so as not to offend and as any who oppose this new move of tolerance is labelled a hater and in violation of the hate crime laws, the denominations will comply so as not to risk the tax free status they enjoy. What the scriptures have to say about this is very clear.

[Quote]

Jas 4:3 You ask and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your lusts.
Jas 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever desires to be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
Jas 4:5 Do you think that the Scripture says in vain, The spirit that dwells in us yearns to envy?
Jas 4:6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says, God resists the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.
Jas 4:7 Therefore submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

[/Quote]

verse 4 is very plain. To try and be a friend of the world is to make yourself an enemy of God. It would have been better to loose the tax free status and face the courts on the hate crime laws than to surrender the church over to the world systems in defeat. How could they resist the devil when they wanted the devils money more that the Lords righteousness.

Well this tactic has achieved the following objectives. The main line denominations that have embraced the diversity message have in fact cut themselves off from Christ altogether as religious bodies. They are fast becoming the habitation of demons and familiar spirits which are only too happy to provide the false signs and wonders as the congregations are lead further and further into darkness as none under these circumstances has any hope of receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit and None will have the authority of Christ to resist or even understand the onslaught that is being brought to bear upon them from a spiritual perspective. They have in effect been handed over to their own delusions.

[Quote]

2Th 2:5 Do you not remember that I told you these things when I was still with you?
2Th 2:6 And now you know what holds back, for him to be revealed in his own time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already working, only he is now holding back until it comes out of the midst.
2Th 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the breath of His mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming,
2Th 2:9 whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10 and with all deceit of unrighteousness in those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, so that they might be saved.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie,
2Th 2:12 so that all those who do not believe the truth, but delight in unrighteousness, might be condemned.

[/Quote]

Well there can be no doubt that a strong delusion has settled on these denominations that once served the Lord. They have in fact been handed over to destruction. From here on out they are only going to get worse and worse as the time of the end approaches. The demonic entities now running the show are going to have a field day. The main line denominations that continue to function will have to do it in the worlds system and will be firmly in Satan’s hand. They cannot wield Christ’s authority, they cannot come to repentance without breaking the law of the land. And the congregations like their sins.

But this move has also served another purpose. The diehards that once had membership with these fallen congregations have been compelled to separate themselves from them. Those that would not compromise on their stand for Christ and the kingdom are for the most part in a disorganized state in the wilderness without any formal attachment to any formalized body of believers. They cannot stand as a group as they are for the most part out of touch with each other.

This now brings us into phase three of Satan’s operation to rid the earth of Gods representatives. What is going to happen is well explained in these verses.

[Quote]

Dan 12:1 And at that time Michael shall stand up, the great ruler who stands for the sons of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation; until that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan 12:2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Dan 12:3 And those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars forever and ever.
Dan 12:4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Dan 12:5 Then I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood another two, the one on this side, and the one on that side of the bank of the river.
Dan 12:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen on the waters of the river: Until when shall be the end of these wonders?
Dan 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was on the waters of the river, when he held up his right and his left hand to Heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever that it shall be for a time, times, and a half. And when they have made an end of scattering the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

[/Quote]

From Satan’s perspective the remnant of the body is scattered in the wilderness. And disorganized but still a danger to him. He needs to be able to identify the individuals so that he can deal with them and get them out the way. At the start he will still be using his hate crime laws to cause the saints to slip up and expose themselves, he will also rely on the laws to prevent the name of Jesus and the power vested in it from being passed onto the next generation by just banning it outright under the guise of it being inclusive only.
At this time the greatest tool in Satan’s arsenal will be the rule of law that he will pervert for his own purpose. In the end it will get to the point where the Mark of the Beast will be in full swing and from that point on the identification will become easy.

But from Christ’s perspective he will have his remnant scattered in the wilderness where he can get down to training them without the traditions of men and doctrines of denominations getting in the way. As they study the word the baptism of the spirit can take place and the power of God manifested. Hence we end up with these verses

[Quote]

Dan 12:3 And those who are wise shall shine as the brightness of the sky; and those who turn many to righteousness shall shine as the stars forever and ever.

[/Quote]

Evangelism will continue in spite of what Satan does, just that it will move underground. The battle between good and evil will intensify right up until the end as indicated in the last verse here

[Quote]

“And when they have made an end of scattering the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished’

[/Quote]

And that is the point where Christ has to intervene directly and the final battle of Armageddon takes place. So as can be seen, there is no way that the true remnant of Christ can embrace the trap baited with the doctrines of tolerance. Just whom are we going to obey here. Men or God. Who really has the greater authority. This is the same decision many in the past have had to make. The state seldom wins.

The Theory of Special Creation.

The Theory of Special Creation.

The first thing that goes through anybodies mind when they read this tittle is, “Oh no, its those people that believe that the world was created in six days”. Well, if the Bible account is to be taken literally then it soon becomes quite obvious that the fires of the sun were only ignited on the fourth day, so how could there have existed three days prior to this event. Unless of course the days referred to someone else’s days or periods of time!

One thing that needs to be kept in mind is that the explanation that was given in the book of Genesis was a very simplified account meant for a person that did not poses the education that we take for granted to day. If a five year old asked an electronics engineer how a television worked do you think that the engineer would go into all the mathematical details of how a resonant circuit worked and how to tune the receiver so that it would resonate with the incoming carrier wave. Together with all the calculations needed to bias all the transistors in the amplification circuits? Of course not! The child would not understand what he was talking about. Likewise the explanation in the account of Genesis is a very simplified version of a very complex subject. However, even from this extremely simplified explanation of the creation account, a very thought provoking and indeed, rational picture can be put together that does correspond with the fossil record and new discoveries in other branches of the sciences.

As I am a product of the modern education system, I am versed in Darwin’s theory of Evolution. You have to be in order to graduate from high school. But if you do any research on the subject you will eventually come across writings by the creationists that pull Darwin’s theory to pieces and rightly so, as it is full of holes and assumptions that are used to fill in all the blanks. At the very least the theory must match the fossil record! The conclusion that one inevitably comes to is that the question regarding the origin of the species should have been left as an open question, while awaiting the gathering of further data. But even in scientific circles there is the inevitable politics involving the desired direction of research based on funding, so the evolution agenda is pushed to the detriment of all others.

However, throughout this entire debunkel, I have yet to come across a single article that takes the first chapter of Genesis, so as to scrutinize it in such a way as to form a solid and coherent theory that will explain the origin of the species. Therefore I have decided to do it myself. I have used the Revised International Version of the Bible as this is the most widely used these days and it basically says exactly the same as the King James that I normally use. Only in a more modern form of English. It is my hope that those more qualified than myself in the fields of Physics, pantology and the like will stand back a second and consider what I have laid before them as a viable, though somewhat crude theory, and give the subject a second look from this new angle. If they would contribute their own fields of expertise to the subject in a honest and positive fashion, then it should develop to the point where the more critical points of it could be either proved or disproved on the basis of proper scientific principles, both in the laboratory and in the field. For everyone else, this is how the Bible says we came about, so feel free to check it out for yourselves!

The First Day.

[quote]

  1. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
  2. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirt of God was hovering over the waters.
  3. And God said “let there be light,”and there was light.
  4. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

5, God called the light day, and the darkness he called night. And there was evening and there was morning- the first day.[/quote]

Verse one indicates that there was a beginning. This beginning involved all the matter that makes up our universe. The entity that we identify as God claims responsibility for the creation of all the matter that exists in our universe. Now current scientific theory suggests that it all started with a big bang. This may or may not be the way that God did it, we cannot tell from the scripture alone. But the next verse does lean towards another method.

God obviously had plans for the earth right from early on as his attention in the form of his spirit was directed towards it. At this point in time the earth is described as a formless mass of mud that contained a predominant amount of water. The fact that it is described as formless is significant. Further on in the Old Testament the scriptures describe the sphere of the earth indicating a mass that was round. But here it was formless indicating that although there was a large enough mass of matter to form a planet there was no gravity to pull it into the shape of a sphere yet. In other words the constants and laws of the universe were still in the process of being designed and written. Hence I question if the big bang was the way it happened as that would mean that the universal constants would have to be set in motion from the moment of the beginning. While scripture indicates a slower more deliberate process.

The next two verses have to be looked at very carefully. Up to this point light did not exist. God claims to be the one that created and made light possible. In fact further on in scripture light seems to be Gods signature, indicating that its creation was considered a rather big deal. Ever since the invention of the first radio there has been debate regarding wether or not there is an either that acts as a conducting medium for radio waves or light waves, in fact to carry any form of electromagnetic radiation. The concept of an either falls in and out of vouge in scientific circles continuously. The indications from the creationist point of view is that it does exist and that it is tied up with gravity in some way, indicating that gravity pushes rather than pulls matter towards other matter. Just what the source of this first light was is not indicated but it was not from the sun. The sun was only set in place on the fourth day so as to replace this first form of light that had started to fade by then. Now it is interesting to note that astronomers have indicated that the outer reaches of the universe are blocked from view by what they term white noise. Could this be the last residue of this first original light.

The Genesis account then goes on to say that God made a clear separation between the light and the darkness. Now we tend to think of light as travelling in a straight line so that it permeates everywhere unless blocked by a solid object resulting in a shadow being cast. But here it is described as being separated by some hither to unknown mechanism. It is only in recent years that astronomers have become aware of dark matter. Your speculation is as good as mine but there are areas in this universe where light has no means of propagation. Hence we have dark areas, a clear separation between light and darkness. It is called night and day as those are terms that an uneducated man would understand. What else is God to call it anyway?

Now the last verse is also interesting. The time between the evening and the morning is understood by us to be the night time but in the Genesis account it is referred to as the first day. This should further indicate to us that the days referred to in the Genesis accounts are God’s days, not ours. From our perspective it would be better to just say that the first time period of unknown duration passed.

The Second Day.

[quote]

  1. And God said “Let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water”

7, So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse from the water above it. And it was so.

8, God called the expanse “sky” And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. [/quote]

The next few days are devoted to how God prepared the earth so that it could sustain life. In this second day an explanation is given on how our atmosphere was developed.

It should be noted here that at no time in the scriptures is the development of the earth considered unique or a one off event. Just take a look at the Lords Prayer, “Let thy Kingdom come, Let thy will be done, in earth, as it is in Heaven.”If God has a Kingdom, then he must have dominion over all the subjects that make up that kingdom. The implication is that this earth has been in rebellion against, or opposed to, Gods kingdom, ever since the fall of Adam. The Lords prayer is asking that this earth be brought back under the kingship, or will of God, like the rest of creation! So from a creationists point of view, the only thing unique about us is that we are currently in a state of rebellion against the creator, while the rest of creation is still in line with his will. A particularly unwise state to be in, considering the obvious power, that this entity we know of as God, must of necessity posses.

Anyway, getting back to the subject at hand! By the second day gravity must have been put in place and the earth, under its own gravitational pull, consolidated itself into a sphere. Obviously the physical laws governing the specific gravity of the elements would also be in effect by this stage, so all the heaver elements would sink to the bottom with the lighter elements and liquids being near the surface. Hence we have a planet who’s entire surface area is covered by water. Obviously there would need to be some source of heat to ensure that the water was in a liquid state. The only cause of heat that I can think of here was that when the earth pulled itself together the friction of the event and the compression of the heaver elements in the core provided the energy necessary. To this day we still have a molten core through which an electric current of some form passes, giving us our magnetic field. Something that not all planets have.

Now the Geneses account says that God used the water to create the atmosphere. But this first atmosphere was a bit different from the one we have today. The account indicates that the upper atmosphere enveloped the planet with a layer of water, with the lower regions being occupied with the normal gasses that made up the planets atmosphere at that time. This layer of water in the upper atmosphere would be the perfect shield against radiation that was probably quite prolific in the universe during the time of its early formation. This also answers two questions, where all the water came from to make possible a flood as large as the one described by Noah and his Ark. Also why it never rained up to that point in our history. Obviously something has happened to our atmosphere to prevent it from retaining moisture as it did prior to Noah’s flood. Perhaps a temperature difference of some kind. Now our deserts just keep on growing!

The Third Day

[quote]

  1. And God said,”Let the waters under the sky be gathered in one place, and let dry ground appear.”And it was so.
  2. God called the dry ground “land”.And the gathered waters he called, “seas”.And God saw that it was good.
  3. Then God said,”Let the land produce vegetation: seed bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so.
  4. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seeds according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
  5. And there was evening and there was morning – the third day.[/quote]

As would be expected the earth pulled itself into a perfect sphere under its own weight with the denser matter settling to the bottom. As there was a great deal of water molecules present in the conglomeration of matter that went into the composition of the earth, it stands to reason that the earth would naturally be a water planet with a solid crust that made up the sea floor or ocean bed. However God decided that he was going to make this planet habitable for life that would also exist in a gaseous atmosphere as well as liquid water.

In order to achieve this he would have to rake up the solid matter from the ocean floor to form a mound of solid ground above the water level. Hence we have dry land and a misshapen planet that is no longer a perfect sphere. I have often seen exposed strata on the sides of cliffs and mountains. I see layers of quartz and granite in this strata but they are at crazy angles and often looped back over themselves or formed patterns like that found in crumpled paper. Now these are igneous rocks. They are supposed to have formed and solidified as the earth cooled down so as to form the crust of the planet. Why are they not horizontal and consistent in their layers? What I see is consistent with huge chunks of earth being displaced and shoved around. I am forced to conclude that the formation of dried land on our planet has to be the result of an event that took place in our distant past, or as the book of genesis says, an act of Devine intervention. Take your pick, but a satisfactory explanation is required here.

One thing to keep in mind though, is that solid land on this plant is the result of some outside action. That means that the law of decay will be in effect concerning it, as is the case with everything as it ages. That means that the dry land must gradually sink back into the sea from whence it came, albeit over an incredibly long period of time. Now it is interesting to note that in chapter 10, verse 25 it says, “Two sons were born to Eber, One was named Peleg, because in his time the earth was divided: His brother was named Joktan.”Could this refer to the time that the continental drift first started as this first original land mass or super continent, that science refers to as “Gondwanaland” started to break up and drift apart, as it gradually sinks back into the sea.

Now to this point God had a planet, The planet had an atmosphere that provided protection from harmful background radiation. He had dry land, Lots of water, heat still emanating from the interior of the planet and a form of light emanating from a hither to unknown source. It was time to start creating life, and what better place than the bottom of the food chain. Hence he started with the vegetation. The fact that this vegetation came with its own seeds enabled it to be self perpetuating. Here light was converted into energy that could be consumed by higher life forms in order to sustain the life of those higher life forms. It would appear that microbial life is lumped together with the vegetation as the two are interdependent on each other.

This also brings us back to the story of which came first, the chicken or the egg! The soil needs to be prepared with the needed nutrients for vegetation to grow and the soil needs the decomposing vegetation in order to develop the required humerus that forms the nutrients that are needed to support vegetation. Hence we have one of the first impasses that can only be explained by intervention of a third party.

It is interesting to note that after each phase of the creation process, God would stand back and examen what he had made to see that it all functioned the way he intended. Also how much is accomplished in each day, or time period, can be taken as an indication of the complexity of each stage.

The Fourth Day

[quote]

  1. And God said,”Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night , and let them serve as signs to mark the seasons and days and years.
  2. And let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so.
  3. God made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night . He also made the stars
  4. God set them in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth
  5. To govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness. And God saw that it was good.
  6. And there was evening and there was morning – the fourth day.[/quote]

We now come to the point where the universe is starting to settle down into the state that we see it as to day. The initial burst of light that permeated throughout the universe at the start of creation is now starting to fade away and another source of light now has to be found to sustain life on this planet we call earth.

It is interesting to note that there was no set period of day and night on the earth up to this point, which indicates that the original source of light that was used up till this time was of a form that pervaded everywhere. We can also make the assumption that a source of heat was also needed as the surface of the planet would have started to cool down by this time. Obviously it was at this point in time that the earth started to experience what we now have come to understand as our regular day and night. Therefor we are forced to the conclusion that the six days of creation has to refer to some other form of time duration that we are not presently aware of as yet. Call it Gods days, which indicates that this simple explanation is being recited from his perspective, not ours.

It is also at this time that the rhythms or cycles of nature was set up. Not just between day and night but also between winter and summer. The sun is obviously the greater light and the moon is the lesser. We now know that the moon is older than the earth with its own distinct geology. It also keeps the earth stable in space so that the planet does not start to tumble but swings back and forth, no further than 23 and a half degrees, thus giving us our seasons. Once again, how the binary system of the earth and moon came to be, points to intelligent design and outside interference. After all the two bodies are not really related and the results of their relationship indicates prior planning.

The sun was probably in the process of forming for quite some time before this event, basically pulling in all the hydrogen atoms from the surrounding space with its gravitational field. It was only now of a high enough density to ignite in its nucleolar reactions. Likewise all the other stars in the universe were also going through the same process. Only now that you had a regular day and night due to the earths rotation, the other stars became visible during the dark periods of the nights. As the earth was rotating around the sun so every night a different part of the sky would be visible, which enables us to tell when the earth has completed a complete cycle around the sun or one solar year as viewed from our perspective.

According to Biblical prophecy this rhythm will remain stable and in place until the last days when there will be a disruption that will cause the earth to rock to and fro like a drunkard. Until that time we can rely on a regular stability between the seasons.

The Fifth Day

[quote]

  1. And God said,”Let the waters team with living creatures and let birds fly across the expanse of the sky.”
  2. So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teams .according to their kinds. And every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
  3. God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the waters in the sea, and let the birds increase on the earth.
  4. And there was evening and there was morning – the fifth day.[/quote]

Now this also follows a logical path. Vegetation had been seeded on the dry land which of course was spreading at a slow but steady rate. In turn it would be modifying the atmosphere in the form of oxygen production. All the dead leaves etc that fall to the ground would of course break down into humerus that would be used to prepare the soil to accept more vegetation.

The water however has no self cleaning mechanism. What erodes off the land into the sea will just sit there, slowly degenerating into sludge. Hence the need to create life in the sea, starting with the crustaceans etc, which are basically the bottom feeders or natures little cleaners if you will. It is also interesting to note that every creature would reproduce after its own kind. There was no cross breading between species and this trait remains with us to this day.

It is also indicated that only a small but viable sample of each creature was created and then they were left to breed on there own until the populations grew to the point where they spread out across the oceans. No doubt the predators were introduced later so as to control the numbers resulting in natures checks and balances. This also explains why life just seems to explode into the fossil record in its fully developed form.

On dry land there was a need to speed up the propagation or spread of the vegetation. As the vegetation had only spread out to a limited extent from its point of origin, it was only able to provided food for a limited amount of animal life, hence the creation of bird life first. Small consumers while far travellers. The bird eats the fruit then poops out the seed far from the fruit tree. Hence the process of spreading seeds was greatly speeded up and natural obstacles such as mountain ranges was overcome. The further the natural vegetation spreads, the greater the likely range of the bird life. A rather good example of a symbiotic relationship.

Again the earth would be left for a time, until it was ready fo the next step in its development.

The Sixth Day

[quote]

  1. And God said, “ Let the land produce living creatures according to their kind: Livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” And it was so
  2. God made the wild animals according to there kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
  3. Then God said, “ Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air. Over the livestock. Over all the earth and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
  4. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him: male and female he created them.
  5. God blessed them and said to them. “ Be fruitful and increase in number: fill the earth and subdue it, Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every living creature that moves on the ground.”
  6. Then God said,”I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
  7. And to all the beast of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
  8. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning – The sixth day.[/quote]

Now we come to the last day, where all that which we consider to be the higher life forms are created. With humans being the very last on the list. It is interesting to note that at this point in time all the creatures, including man, was supposed to be vegetarian in nature. Obviously the eating of meat only came later.

There is however one very interesting point to the story. It has to do with Gods method of operation in the creation process, as far as living creatures are concerned. In Chapter 2 verse 21 it says.

[quote]

  1. So God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep: and while he was sleeping, he took one of the mans ribs, and closed up the place with flesh.
  2. Then the lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.[/quote]

Now, in modern science we would know this as cloning. God already had a man that was functioning as he wanted. In effect he already had a human stencil, why create the female of the species right from scratch. All he did was to take the genetic code that was already established and tweak it so as to grow into the female version of the same species. Now if he did that here it is quite probable that he used the same method while developing all the other species.

Look at all the different antelope. They all have 4 hooves, a set of horns and a tail. But all are separate species that do not interbreed with each other. The relationship between them is also quite apparent, but they are at the same time genetically distinct and separate. In all probability, what happened was that God had already developed the basic stencil of the early antelope from scratch. He then tweaked, or modified it to form the next antelope and then modified that to form the next and so on and so forth. This would explain why each separate species of animal just appears in the fossil record in its fully developed form, with no gradual evolution from one form to the next to be found.

This would explain why it would appear that there must have been a common ancestor that each species evolved from. If this hypothesis is correct, then there was a common ancestor all right, but there was no evolution, there was a process of cloning with modifications as each species was modified to form the next. Hence the reason that we have failed to find the evidence of gradual evolution in the fossil record. Its just not there because it never happened.

This is just an interesting artical written by another.

by Carl Wieland

Most people think that fossil bones (of which the most well-known examples are those of dinosaurs) must be very, very old – because, after all, they have turned to stone, haven’t they?

Even millions of years might, to some, not seem long enough to allow for natural processes to gradually, molecule by molecule, replace the original substance of the bone with rock minerals.

But this common picture is misleading. A recent book, co-authored by a world expert on dinosaurs, points out some things about dinosaur bones that are of great interest to creationists. 1

For one thing it says:

‘Bones do not have to be “turned into stone” to be fossils, and usually most of the original bone is still present in a dinosaur fossil.’2

OK, but even if the actual bone is not replaced by rock minerals, some fossil dinosaur bones are rock-hard, and show under the microscope when cut that they have been thoroughly ‘permineralized’.

This means that rock minerals have been deposited into all the spaces within the original bone. Doesn’t this show that the formation of these fossils, at least, must represent a long time? Think again. The same authoritative work also tells us:

‘The amount of time that it takes for a bone to become completely permineralized is highly variable. If the groundwater is heavily laden with minerals in solution, the process can happen rapidly. Modern bones that fall into mineral springs can become permineralized within a matter of weeks.’

So even a rock-solid, hard shiny fossil dinosaur bone, showing under the microscope that all available spaces have been totally filled with rock minerals, does not indicate that it necessarily took millions of years to form at all.

Now of course if a dinosaur bone is indeed permineralized, it would give it great protection from the normal processes which cause things such as bone to just naturally ‘fall apart’. So a permineralized bone might indeed be anything from a few weeks to (in theory) millions of years old.

However, when the dinosaur bone has been prevented from being invaded by mineral-rich water, one would expect that over ‘millions of years’, even locked away from all bacterial agents, dinosaur bone would, in obeying the laws of thermodynamics, 3 just disintegrate from the random motions of the molecules therein.

There are actually instances, mentioned in the same book, in which dinosaur bones in Alberta, Canada, were encased in ironstone nodules shortly after being buried. We are told:

‘The nodules prevented water from invading the bones, which for all intents and purposes cannot be distinguished from modern bone.’ 4

This is a stunning revelation. Evolutionists are convinced that all dinosaur bones must be at least 65 million years old.

Those who take Genesis as real history would predict that no dinosaur bone is more than a few thousand years old, so the existence of such totally unmineralized dinosaur bones that have not disintegrated is perfectly consistent with our expectations.

We have previously told you about the unfossilized dinosaur bone which still contained red blood cells and hemoglobin. 5 Also, we wrote about ‘fresh dinosaur bones’ in Alaska. 6 Let the evolutionist experts writing this book confirm this:

‘An even more spectacular example was found on the North Shore of Alaska, where many thousands of bones lack any significant degree of permineralization. The bones look and feel like old cow bones, and the discoverers of the site did not report it for twenty years because they assumed they were bison, not dinosaur, bones.’

In summary, therefore:

Most fossil dinosaur bones still contain the original bone.

Even when heavily permineralized (‘fossilized’), this does not need to require more than a few weeks. The Creation/Flood scenario for fossilization would allow many centuries for such permineralization to occur, even under less that ideal conditions.

Where bones have not been protected by permineralization, they are sometimes found in a condition which, to all intents and purposes, looks as if they are at most centuries, not millions of years old.

The Bible’s account of the true history of the world makes it clear that no fossil can be more than a few thousand years old. Dinosaur bones give evidence strongly consistent with this.

The Relationship between the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

The Relationship between the Father Son and Holy Spirit.

Written by Traveler

In order to get a solid handle on how this relationship works the best way to go about it is to look at what the original Apostles had to say about the subject. First off did they even draw a distinction between God and Christ or God and the Holy Spirit. Well the distinction between God the Father and God the Son is quite obvious.

[quote]

Rom 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

Rom 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

Rom 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Rom 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

1Co 1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,

1Co 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

1Co 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

2Co 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:

2Co 1:2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gal 1:1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

Gal 1:2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

Gal 1:3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

Gal 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

Eph 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Eph 1:2 Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

Php 1:1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:

Php 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Col 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,

Col 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Col 1:3 We give thanks to God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,

1Th 1:1 Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1Th 1:2 We give thanks to God always for you all, making mention of you in our prayers;

1Th 1:3 Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

1Ti 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

[/quote]

I could carry on and cover every single epistle but they are all the same as in 100% consistent. All the greetings indicate that the first Apostles considered God the Father their God and Jesus Christ their Lord.

In every single opening greeting they drew a definite distinction between the two separate personalities of God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. But God the Holy Spirit hardly gets any mention at all.

So of course the next question to work through is how this distinction came about. For a separation to be made between the Father and Son but not the Holy spirit with such consistency indicates a well established understanding of Doctrine that existed back then, when the Gospels were written by the first eye witnesses to the events that the faith has been based upon.

A good place to start when getting a grasp of this is to see just what roles God and Jesus played in this whole salvation process. Below is a very common quote that sums it all up very well. This is Jesus speaking.

[quote]

Joh 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Joh 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Joh 3:16 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.

Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

[/quote]

So the question here is who is the one in charge of this operation. The answer is God the Father.

The next question is where was God the Father when all this was going on. The answer is that he was on his throne governing over his creation.

Where was Jesus when all this was going on. The answer is that he was on this earth hanging on the cross.

So who actually redeemed the world back to the kingdom of God. It was God the Father who set the operation in motion and he used Jesus to do it. Jesus was the one that paid the price to redeem the world back to God the Father but it was God the Father that was the one that was responsible for making it all happen and issuing the orders to do it!

What is the criteria for this salvation to be effective! A Faith and Trust and Belief in Jesus as the atonement for our sins so that the sins that separate us from God the Father are paid for and we can be released from the curse of the law that used to keep us bound. No one comes to God the Father but by Christ Jesus, But keep in mind that the end destination is still God the Father. Jesus is the way, but God is the destination.

[quote]

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

[/quote]

What is also interesting is that we can see a parallel of this in the old testament as well. Abraham was put to the test by God the Father and because he was faithful in what God asked the promise of the old covenant was given to him and the promise of the redeemer of mankind was also predicted to come from his line.

[quote]

Gen 22:16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son:

Gen 22:17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;

Gen 22:18 And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

[/quote]

Of course from that point of time in history the promise of the coming Messiah that would take away the sins of the world became a permanent features in many of the prophetic messages. For example there is this passage from out the book of Isaiah.

We now look back at the Messiah that came, But back then the people were looking forward to the Messiah that would come.

[quote]

Isa 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

Isa 44:7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.

Isa 44:8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

[/quote]

Now from verse 6 the Lord there is God the Father. He is the King of Israel because they are the holy nation that he has the first covenant with. The quote then goes on to state “And his redeemer the Lord of Hosts” Here we have the mention of two Deities with distinct and separate personalities that are working together. His redeemer as in this redeemer belongs to God, is who we understand as Christ Jesus. And Jesus has the title of Lord of Hosts.

But as it is God the Father speaking here it is also obvious that when he says there is no God besides himself, he is stating that he is the top of the line, There is none his equal. He is the only real God in existence.

But it is also from this time period that the positions that Jesus would fulfill in the future also is foretold.

[quote]

Isa 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

[/quote]

The Word Lord here is the name Jehovah which is the national Israelite name for God the Father, so God the Father is their maker and a husband to the nation because of the first covenant. But when it comes to the prophecy concerning Jesus the redeemer it states that in the future he shall be called the God of the whole earth. But keep in mind that God the Father will still be the God over all creation even though Jesus will be the God over the earth.

The word translated as God there is this one. The one used for our redeemer.

[quote]

H430

אלהים

‘ĕ?lô?hı?̂?ym

el-o-heem’

Plural of H433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative: – angels, X exceeding, God (gods) (-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.

[/quote]

 

This is not the name for God the Father. Again even though Jesus will be called the God over all the earth there is still a distinction made between himself and his to be Father. The word translated for God the Father is this one.

 

[quote]

H3068

יהוה

yehô?vâ?h

yeh-ho-vaw’

From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: – Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.

[/quote]

From that it remains obvious that the Israelites understood the difference between their God and his redeemer who is to be their Messiah. From our perspective both the Father and Son are Gods, but the one is subservient to the other.

Again this is reinforced with this prophecy concerning the setting up of Christs kingdom here on this earth. The one that will last forever as also explained in the book of Daniel.

[quote]

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Isa 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

[/quote]

But again the words used for translation needs to be looked at to get the real meaning of the passage. In verse 6 where Jesus is to be called the mighty God the word translated as God is this one

[quote]

H410

אל

‘ê?l

ale

Shortened from H352; strength; as adjective mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity): – God (god), X goodly, X great, idol, might (-y one), power, strong. Compare names in “-el.”

[/quote]

As can be seen this is a different word from the one used to name God the Father ! And the word translated as Father here comes from this one.

[quote]

H1

אב

‘â?b

awb

A primitive word; father in a literal and immediate, or figurative and remote application: – chief, (fore-) father ([-less]), X patrimony, principal. Compare names in “Abi-”

[/quote]

However in the next verse where it says “zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” The Word translated as Lord is that of God the Father as in Jehovah. In other words it is going to be God, the God over all creation that is going to make all this come about for his Son.

What needs to be kept in mind is that back then just about every tribe had their own God with the result that there was a lot of different words used to describe the different Gods just as the Eskimoes of today have 34 different words for snow, One to describe each different type of snow. It was only as a result of the crucifixion that all these other pagan gods got driven out, hence we no longer have such a variety of names to differentiate between them.

Now a lot of that will make more sense when we look at what Jesus had to say about himself. This next quote is Jesus talking to one of his churches.

[quote]

Rev 3:14 And to the angel of the church of Laodicea write: These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, who is the beginning of the creation of God:

[/quote]

Although Jesus the Christ may be a part of the God head he is affirming that he is a created being. Well think about this. There is only one God that is responsible for all creation. So was God and Jesus both in existence thus making two Gods or was God here first and then Jesus. Scripture cannot contradict itself. Either it was God that started all of creation or it was God and Jesus that started all creation Either we have one eternal God that started it all or we have two eternal Gods. The scripture says that there is only one.

Well as it turns out Jesus was involved in the creation process. God may have created this universe but he did it through Jesus. This does not contradict scripture. As can be seen from the following scriptures the first Apostles that founded the church understood this.

[quote]

Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Col 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Col 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

[/quote]

Now this passage above, is giving an explanation of who Jesus is. Now notice the word image found in verse 15. Jesus is described as the image of the invisible God over all. The word translated as image and sometimes reflection comes from this one.

[quote]

G1504

εἰ?ώ?

eikō?n

i-kone’

From G1503; a likeness, that is, (literally) statue, profile, or (figuratively) representation, resemblance: – image.

[/quote]

The implication here is that the very first thing that God created was a reflection of himself who is the personality that we understand as Jesus, also referred to as the Word of God in the old testament. And then God used Jesus to carry out the rest of creation. Now that is who the first Apostles understood Jesus to be, what has changed since then?

Now this is just reinforced by the verse below.

[quote]

Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

[/quote]

Now for God to create all things through Jesus is not out of line with what the scriptures reveal about Gods preferred method of operation either. When God wanted to being the Israelites out of Egypt he didn’t go there himself and swat Pharaoh himself, He sent Moses to do the job and gave him the backing of his creative power to get the job done. He worked through his creation!

When he got rid of the cities of Sodom and Gamora he did not do it himself, he sent a couple of angles to go check the place out and they brought the fire down out of heaven to lay waist to the place. He worked through his creation!

When he wanted to redeem the world back to himself he did not just pass a decree and make it happen, he sent Jesus down to the earth to get the Job done. He worked through his creation in line with the laws that he laid down!

When he brings a nation under judgment he does not come down and sort them out himself, He raises up other nations to do the job, or in some cases he will send an angelic host to defend a nation, He works through his creation!

All his creation is at his disposals. He did not create Jesus to just stand around and look pretty, He created Jesus as a reflection of himself so as to carry out the works needed at that level of power. Jesus has the rank of the Word of God. When he speaks it is with the authority of God. That is why he sits right up there at the right hand of God.

This is just reinforced by the passage below.

[quote]

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

[/quote]

It is obvious that this was the understanding of the first Apostles, what has changed since then. To preach a gospel that is not in line with the first gospel that was originally delivered to us, is to cut the church off from the protection of God and that is sure to have terrible consequences!

The Jesus of the Bible.

The Jesus of the Bible.

Written by Traveler

There is one thing that can be noted about the Apostles that planted the first churches, they warned about destructive heresies coming into the church that would be preaching a Jesus that was different from the one that they had first taught the early converts about. As the scriptures state, Jesus sits at the right hand of God. He does not sit on the throne of God as God.

[Quote]

Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

Mar 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

[/quote]

Because of this and the age we now live in it is very important that we gain a clear definition of just who the Jesus of the Bible actually is. In order to do this the God of the Bible also has to be understood and that means that the covenants of both the old and new testaments have to be grasped as well. This all has to dovetail together so as to gain a real understanding of the subject.

Now to get a grasp of this subject lets just look at some things that God said about Jesus while he was still in his preincarnate form.

[quote]

Psa 2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Psa 2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Psa 2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Psa 2:10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

Psa 2:11 Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

Psa 2:12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

[/quote]

Now this prophetic psalm was written around King David’s time which was still hundreds of years before Christ was even conceived in Mary. It is God himself stating in verse 7 that he will be the biological Father of Jesus and that Jesus will not be fathered from a descendant of Adam, thus qualifying Jesus to be the Lamb of God to redeem the world back to himself.

Now verse 8 makes it quite clear that God has Given Jesus the heathen nations to him as his inheritance, Not the Holy nation of Israel as that belongs to God himself through the first covenant. Look at the church today. It is made up of the heathen nations. Yes Christ will still also redeem the Holy Nation as their Messiah at the right time but his own personal possession will be his bride or Church. The Church does not keep the law of Moses, the Israelites do.

Now this passage just confirms what has already been stated. It is prophetic in nature and tells of what Jesus actually did.

[quote]

Mar 12:35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?

Mar 12:36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.

Mar 12:37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.

Gen 17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

Gen 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

Gen 17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

Gen 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

Gen 17:5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

Gen 17:6 And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.

Gen 17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.

Gen 17:8 And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.

Gen 17:9 And God said unto Abraham, Thou shalt keep my covenant therefore, thou, and thy seed after thee in their generations.

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

Dan 9:26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.
