Major snowstorm forces

cancellation of Climate Change

March in Colorado

 
 

More than a foot (30 cm) of snow in some areas.

“Oh yes, there’s nothing like a late April blizzard to prove that the planet is warming at unprecedented levels.” – The Gateway Pundit.


The Colorado Springs People’s Climate March was canceled late Friday after heavy snow began falling across the Front Range.

In Denver, the snow was so heavy that someone was able to build a snowman, as shown in photos posted online.

The website Complete Colorado ran a photo of a man on skis with the headline, “Heading to the Global Warming Rally Today.”

Here are some of the bigger snow totals as of 11:am today:

  • Aspen Springs: 9.5 inches
  • Boulder: 8 inches
  • Brookvale: 11 inches
  • Castle Rock: 8 inches
  • Centennial: 8 inches
  • Chatfield Reservoir: 8.5 inches
  • Conifer: 16 inches
  • Crescent Village: 14.5 inches
  • Eldorado Springs: 8.6 inches

Over 30,000 Scientists Declare

Climate Change A Hoax

27/04/17

A staggering 30,000 scientists have come forward confirming that man-made climate change is a hoax perpetuated by the elite in order to make money.

One of the experts is weather channel founder, John Coleman, who warns that huge fortunes are being made by man-made climate change proponents such as Al Gore. — Yournewswire

Natural News reports:

In a recent interview with Climate Depot, Coleman said:

“Al Gore may emerge from the shadows to declare victory in the ‘global warming’ debate if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House. Yes, if that happens and the new climate regulations become the law of the land, they will be next to impossible to overturn for four to eight years.”

Climate change proponents remain undeterred in their mission, ignoring numerous recent scientific findings indicating that there has been no warming trend at all for nearly two decades.

Al Gore’s dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false.

In fact, in 2014 – a year that was touted as being “the hottest ever” in the Earth’s history – there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe.

Debunking the “97 percent” lie

On top of those “inconvenient truths,” the White House’s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked.

Several independently-researched examinations of the literature used to support the “97 percent” statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading.

More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe.

From the National Review:

“A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased.”

Other mainstream news sources besides the National Review have also been courageous enough to speak out against the global warming propaganda – even the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece in 2015 challenging the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) pseudoscience being promulgated by global warming proponents.

And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields.

But hey, Al Gore and his cronies have also ignored that inconvenient truth, as well.

Many of those scientists who signed the petition were likely encouraged to speak out in favor of the truth after retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth – not human activity.

Al Gore and cronies continue getting richer from the global warming hoax

But the global warming crowd continues to push their agenda on the public while lining their pockets in the process.

If you’re still inclined to believe what Al Gore has to say about global warming, please consider the fact that since he embarked on his crusade, his wealth has grown from $2 million in 2001 to $100 million in 2016 – largely due to investments in fake “green tech” companies and the effective embezzlement of numerous grants and loans.

You might want to take all of this information into serious consideration before casting your vote in the November election.

4 Oct 2016 – “The Sun has ‘gone blank’ (no sunspots) for the fourth time this year, and it could herald the arrival of an Ice Age,” reports news.com.au.

The last time sunspots vanished at such a rapid rate was during a centuries-long ice age (The Litle Ice Age) that began in the 15th century.

According to The Sun, sunspots are appearing at the lowest rate in 10,000 years.

Meteorologist Paul Dorian told The Daily Star that the sharp decline in solar activity could be a sign of a new Ice Age.

“If history is any guide, it is safe to say that weak solar activity for a prolonged period of time can have a cooling impact on global temperatures in the troposphere which is the bottom most layer of Earth’s atmosphere—and where we all live.”

“Nothing at all about the established theories of solar cycles, heliosphere density, cosmic ray flux, and their relation to cloud formation and hence global temperature,” says Terra. “Obviously they can’t mention that, because it would inform the public of flaws in the stupid and baseless AGW fable.”

The Cyborgs Are Coming. Mankind Is On The Cusp

Of Human Brain Augmentation With BrainGate

Technology

August 22, 2016

Kim McLendon

BrainGate technology is no longer the stuff of science fiction. The science of interfacing human brains and other biological neurons with computers has been developing for well over a decade and now, the progress is amazing.

While the human mind is an amazing organ, that surpasses any computer ever made. Many fantasize about improving on natural skills and abilities using technology in the form of some sort of brain implant. That dream is about to become a reality. In some ways, it already has according to the BrainGate website.

“BrainGate Company’s current and planned intellectual property (the technology) is based on technology that can sense, transmit, analyze and apply the language of neurons. BrainGate consists of a sensor that is implanted on the motor cortex of the brain and a device that analyzes brain signals.”

Cyborg and biohacking research history started in 1998 with Dr. Kevin Warwick and what he called Project Cyborg according to Digital Trends. Warwick began by implanting a simple radio-frequency identification chip or RFID in his own shoulder. He planned to use this chip to adjust lighting in his office and opening doors locked to others. The experiment was successful, and so Warwick went a bit further, experimenting on himself yet again. In 2002, Warwick had a surgeon implant a BrainGate technology device.

An early BrainGate technology device, a forerunner of the technology available today, attached directly to Dr. Kevin Warwick’s arm allowing him to control a robotic hand remotely. When this was successful, Warwick had a device implanted in his wife’s arm designed to make him feel a sensation whenever she touched something. This resulted in a sort of technologically enhanced empathy or telepathy with his wife so that when she touched an object, Warwick felt the sensation in his own hand.

As a self-proclaimed cyborg, Dr. Kevin Warwick was encouraged to do a series of speaking engagements where he developed a certain demographic of followers who called themselves transhumanist enthusiasts. These transhumanists were willing to engage in self-styled, do-it-yourself biohacking. They either made the incisions themselves or employ body modification artists because most doctors refused to assist these projects.

BrainGate technology on a budget was a pet project of Lepht Anonym, a pioneer in biohacking according to Digital Trends. She believes she may have even coined that phrase. She too had her followers, who read her blog online, with increasing fascination. Lepht buys off the rack so to speak, using everyday household items and readily available technology and equipment to do her own homemade implants.

“It started when I was about 18. I was seeing expensive adverts for life-extension companies, and I would see expensive procedures that you could get only if you had a spare hundred quid. It seemed that it was all very much directed to people who had money. I wanted to do some experiments to find a way of getting the same technology out into the hands of people who didn’t have that kind of money.”

Inserting a little more RAM? [Image by lassedesignen/Shutterstock]

Inserting a little more RAM? 

Tim Cannon and Shawn Sarver founded Grindhouse Wetware, determined to make human enhancement an affordable reality.

Their current goal has been named Circadia. It will be an implanted device that would monitor blood oxygen, blood glucose, blood pressure, temperature and heart rate.

While most scientists do not approve of ordinary people, without funding and lacking certain areas of medical expertise, attempting high tech biohacking Dr. Kevin Warwick is cautiously optimistic and even encouraging.

“I think it’s important that the artists are doing what they’re doing, because there aren’t really a whole band of scientists investigating this at the moment.”

BrainGate technology, however, is still the cutting edge of cyborg-style technology.

Though currently the new innovation is being designed to help people who are paralyzed or have other nerve related mobility issues, the Braingate website admits it could be used for other applications in the future.

“Our mission is to improve on the quality of life for all disabled humans. We additionally seek to increase the usage of BrainGate related technology in both medical and non-medical applications and facilitate innovation in invasive and non-invasive brain research.”

BrainGate technology’s most recent innovation involves inserting a BrainGate sensor into the brain according to Technology Review.

The hardware portion involves a small array of needle-like silicon electrodes. The sensors attach to a wireless processor designed by a company called Blackrock Microsystems.which is attached to the outside of the skull. The processor then transmits wireless signals to motorized wheelchairs, light switches, TV remote controls and a host of other gadgets designed to aid patients who are immobile according to Technology review. The processor costs about $18,000 and transmits a signal roughly as fast as an internet connection.

Human Enhancements are Lepht Anonym’s greatest concern. Or rather her greatest concern is that economic inequality would lead to a whole other level of elitism, in which economic advantage would give even more important advantages to the elite. If only the wealthy could enhance their brain activity or physical performance using expensive implants, they would become unstoppable in their superiority over the masses.

While Braingate technology is wonderful in its capacity to aid people with brain and nerve injuries and illnesses, that same technology, applied only to any one segment of the population would be tremendously unfair. That is why Lepht Anonym is searching so frantically to level that playing field. She freely admits performing surgery on herself using kitchen implements such as a potato peeler. Her work gives all new meaning to the words affordable health care. Still, even Dr. Kevin Warwick and his most avid student Ian Harrison, admit she has a valid point. Ian Harrison told Digital Trends he is in complete agreement with Anonym.

“Yes. The haves and the have-nots. That to me is a huge fear, with all of these technologies. As soon as it starts to get commercialized, you start getting this divide between people that can afford these implants and the people that can’t.”

BrainGate technology could one day give some people an enhanced human experience, that might include remote control of devices, downloads of information into a human brain or even some advantages that would mimic telekinesis or other fantastic abilities, but should these kinds of advantages only be sold to the highest bidder?

Will BrainGate technology enhance human beings with cyborg-like abilities, and will the distribution of these abilities be fair?

MARK OF THE BEAST

Chapter 40  "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT"

(Author of this website, and the book "Out of the Bottomless Pit" AMAZON DIRECT LINK TO THE SPECIAL VERSION OF MY BOOK IS :-( http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00Q7ARAXW )

 Chapter 40 

 THE MARK OF THE BEAST

 The Mark of the Beast will eventually be used to buy & sell, as Revelation 13:16-18 says:

 “And he causes All, both small and great, Rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

 As you will read below there are many compelling reasons for getting implants and eventually the “Mark of the Beast”*[2] so many compelling advantages or so it would seem, but what will be the ultimate price?

 

It sounds like people could possibly get extra benefits & powers if they get the chip in their foreheads rather than their right hand.  These technologies are being developed right now, and they will be enthusiastically adopted by a large segment of the general public. So are you ready for this brave new world? Will you ever let them put a chip in your head or in your right hand?  

Will you refuse to accept the coming mark of the Beast? 

 A tiny computer chip surgically embedded in your brain could give you superpowers. It sounds crazy, but scientists already use these devices to restore sight for some blind people and hearing for the deaf.

 In the future these implants, also known as neuro-prosthetics, will be able to do much more — sometimes with the help of super-sensitive eye or ear implants. By using electronic signals to stimulate parts of the brain, these chips can now deliver visual and auditory signals and restore connections that have been severed by trauma. Once our understanding of the brain has improved, researchers think it will be possible to deliver more data to the mind.

 

It’s currently risky to drill into the skull and put a small electronic device in there, but the technology is rapidly advancing. Soon, things we consider superpowers will be readily available to anyone who wants them — and can afford it.

Here are some of the things that brain implants will make possible.

 

1. Hear a conversation from across a room, or in a crowded club.

 

Already, cochlear implants can restore hearing for some people, and even allow them to hear for the first time. With the help of specialized hardware, they could tune out what you don’t want to hear, or use sensitive equipment to pick up far-off soundwaves.

 

2. Give you the ability to see in the dark.

 

FDA-approved retinal implants can restore the ability to see motion and shapes for people blinded by a certain genetic condition already. As understanding of the ocular nerve improves, better versions of these implants could give you the night vision of a cat.

 

3. Give you sight that can zoom in on things that are far away.

 

Researchers have already developed contacts that can zoom. But a retinal prosthetic that could do the same thing should make it possible to do this all the time.

 

4. Make you better at math and navigation.

 

Directly stimulating areas of the brain can already boost people’s mathematical and navigational abilities in a lab setting. With a brain implant that did this all the time, it’d be a lot harder to pull the “I’m just not a math person” excuse anymore.

 

5. Allow you to download skills like in “The Matrix.”*[3]

 

Researchers claim that once we understand how practicing a skill transforms the brain over time, we might be able to use implants to cause those same transformations to occur, providing the motor memory for kung-fu skills, or whatever else you want to learn.

 

6. Restore damaged memories.

 

The military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is already experimenting with brain implants that will help soldiers suffering from traumatic brain injuries by using electrodes to stimulate damaged tissue. In the future, this could be a valuable medical technology.

 

7. Cure depression and control mood.

 

DARPA is also working on neuroprosthetics that could cure depression and PTSD. This is similar to recent research showing how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation might be an extremely effective antidepressant. Future implants could regulate the brain and make sure it keeps working the way it should, providing stimulation when necessary.

 

8. Enhance focus and energy, like stimulants without the drugs.

 

Drugs like Adderall and Ritalin are well known for their alertness-boosting abilities, but also for their serious side effects. Brain stimulation could both enhance focus and mental clarity, but without the jittery, speedy, up-all-night feelings — and the post-amphetamine crash.

 

9. Control machines with your mind.

 

It sounds crazy, but researchers have already used a neuroprosthetic sensor to control a robotic arm. As this technology is refined, that control will only become more accurate, allowing for remote control of robots, computers, and more.

 

10. Search the web and translate languages.

 

Once these implants can transmit and receive information, it should be possible to think of a topic — or look at a tree or painting — and send that information to the web, and have relevant results fed back into your brain. This technology is still far away, and will depend on smaller and biologically safer computer chips, as well as better brain maps.

 

Once that’s possible, it’ll have even greater implications. Imagine being able to travel anywhere in the world and being able to understand what’s being said. The same technology that transmits auditory information could potentially feed that data through a translating service and interpret it for you in real time, like your very own Babel fish.

 

Brain Implants Could Give People Perfect Memories And Night Vision

 

This Brain Gate array is the brain implant that helps move robot arms.

 

Computer chips aren’t just for your laptop and phone anymore. Doctors are implanting these technologies in our brains to restore sight to the blind and hearing to the deaf.

 

Soon, they could give people super senses and radically improved memory and focus.

 

“Brain implants today are where laser eye surgery was several decades ago,” write Gary Marcus, an NYU professor of psychology, and Christof Koch, chief scientific officer of the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle, in a recent essay for The Wall Street Journal.

 

Brain implants, also called neuroprosthetics, are used to restore hearing and vision loss, but as our technology and brain knowledge improve, the applications will become almost infinite.

 

They are “not risk-free and make sense only for a narrowly defined set of patients — but they are a sign of things to come,” Marcus and Koch say.

 

Here’s an overview of what brain implants do and how they might be used to create super-humans.

 

What Brain Implants Already Do

 

The most commonly used brain implant now is a cochlear implant that helps restore hearing.

 

Restore Hearing

 

More than 300,000 people already use a brain implant called a cochlear implant. This common neuroprosthetic replaces the malfunctioning ear to restore hearing for certain deaf people.

 

It captures sound with a microphone and then stimulates the auditory nerve through electrodes, allowing the brain to approximate hearing.

 

This isn’t exactly like normal hearing, but it gives a deaf person the ability to perceive sound and helps them identify speech. In this video, a deaf woman hears herself laugh for the first time after her implant is turned on:

 

Control Tremors

 

Thousands of Parkinson’s patients use a neuroprosthetic to lessen tremors and rigid movement.

 

A small electrode runs from a pacemaker-like battery pack underneath their skin (batteries need to be replaced every two to three years) through a small hole in their skull, where it stimulates pathways in the brain that help control motion. When this electrical stimulation happens, it helps reduce, and can even eliminate, Parkinson’s symptoms, although it doesn’t stop the disease from getting worse.

 

Restore Vision

 

A retinal implant under development, similar to the recently approved Second Sight one.

 

Last year the FDA approved a retinal implant that will restore the ability to perceive shapes and motion for people blinded by advanced retinitis pigmentosa, the late stage of a genetic condition that causes a gradual vision loss in about 1 in 4,000 people in the U.S.

 

The device, made by Second Sight, involves 60 electrodes that make up a “retinal prosthesis.” A small video camera and processing unit mounted on a set of glasses transmit data wirelessly to the electrodes in the retina.

 

What Brain Implants Could Do In The Future

 

The implants above are used to restore function lost to disease, but they could be used to enhance function, too. Eventually, neuroprosthetics will do the things of science fiction — quick learning, memory processing, language translation, night vision, and more.

 

Make Us Better At Math And Navigation

 

Research already shows that brain stimulation from external electrodes can help people learn math faster.

 

In a small study that used internal electrodes and deep brain stimulation, people were able to learn and remember routes through a city better. They even demonstrated improved spatial ability, and were better at figuring out shortcuts that could help them along the way.

 

‘Matrix’-Like Automatic Learning

 

Improvements to the technology above could recreate “The Matrix.”

 

In that movie, Keanu Reeves’ character, Neo, learns kung fu by downloading “practice” from a computer. Impossible as that seems, it’s likely that when neuroscientists eventually learn how practicing a skill changes and reshapes the brain, it might be possible to use neurocompilers to input the results of a year of training into the brain all at once.

 

Restoring Memories And Improving Mood

 

Allen Institute for Brain Science & Connections in a mouse brain.

 

Already, the military is experimenting with brain implants that will help soldiers improve memories damaged by traumatic injuries.

 

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is working on two projects under the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) initiative, a neuroscience project announced last year by President Obama.

 

For the first of those two projects, Subnets, researchers are trying to use neuroprosthetics and electric currents to cure PTSD, depression, and pain.

 

The second project, called RAM, aims to develop an implantable device that could restore memory loss and repair brain damage by using electrodes to stimulate neural tissue.

 

Enhancing Focus, Alertness, And Energy

 

Once brain functions can be restored, the next step could be to use the same mechanisms to enhance them — including giving humans better memory, focus, mood, and alertness.

 

“Even now, some parents are willing to let their children take Adderall before a big exam,” Marcus and Koch point out. “The chance to make a ‘superchild’ (or at least one guaranteed to stay calm and attentive for hours on end during a big exam) will be too tempting for many.”

 

Controlling Robots With Our Minds

 

Cathy Hutchinson takes a drink by controlling a robot arm with her brain.

 

In 2011, a paralyzed woman named Cathy Hutchinson picked up a bottle of coffee and took a drink. The amazing thing? She did it using a robot arm controlled by a sensor in her brain. The sensor read her neural activity and told the arm what to do.

 

Currently, controlling a robot in the way that Cathy Hutchinson does is “cumbersome and laborious, like steering a massive barge or an out-of-alignment car.”

 

Scientists have a lot more to learn about the brain, but Marcus and Koch think that by 2100 we’ll think of a question and search the Internet for the answer — without speaking or typing a word.

 

Enhancing Our Senses

 

Every medical implant above could be turned into an enhancement implant. Current prosthetics can help a blind person regain vision — in the future implants would let someone see in the dark, or have zooming vision that lets them read words from 150 feet away.

 

We are already developing contacts that can zoom. Combined with implants, we could control them with the brain, allowing us enhance the zoom at will and eventually be able to search the Web for information on what we see.

 

At some point, anyone with the desire for augmented abilities and the resources to pay for them might be able to buy a mental edge.

 

Technological And Ethical Hurdles: Improve Technology

 

Drilling holes in the skull to implant electrodes is risky, difficult, and potentially damaging to extremely important areas of the brain — not to mention scary. Even the implants are dangerous. The brain doesn’t like to sit still inside the skull, so today’s implants easily slip out of place.

 

Implants need to made of nontoxic materials that won’t cause our bodies to reject them as foreign, and they need to be tiny and rechargeable (perhaps graphene will help). The neuroprosthetics of today are comparable to cellphones of 20 years ago — when they were still “the size of shoeboxes.”

 

Improve Understanding Of The Brain

 

Human Connectome Project, Science, March 2012.

 

The Human Brain Connectome project hopes to get a grasp on how the brain’s neurons are connected, helping us understand thoughts and memories on the cellular level.

 

More important, our understanding of the brain is still rudimentary in many ways. We may understand most of how vision works, but our understanding of memory has a long way to go.

 

“The next challenge will be to interpret the complex information from the 100 billion tiny nerve cells that make up the brain,” the authors say.

 

There are several projects underway in the U.S. and Europe to develop a better fundamental understanding of the brain, including the Human Connectome Project, the aforementioned BRAIN Initiative, and the Human Brain Project.

 

Get People On Board

 

But the real sticking point in applying these new technologies could be people themselves. Americans just aren’t yet ready for it.

 

According to a recent survey,72% of the U.S. population is not interested in a brain implant*[4] that could improve memory or mental capacity, and 53% of people think it’ll be a change for the worse if most people wear implants that provide them with information about the surrounding world.

 

That hesitation can’t stop what’s already in motion. Early adopters like “bio-hackers” — people who modify their bodies with chips they implant themselves — are already buying RFID chips to inject under the skin using a syringe at home and using supplements, smart drugs, and engineered brain states to improve mental abilities.*[5]

 

Marcus and Koch write “the real question isn’t so much whether something like this can be done but how and when.”

 

HEGENESIS PROPHECY AND THE TWO SEEDS*[6]

 

Once we have understood the implications of the Seed of the Woman then we will focus on how Satan has been attempting to destroy the image of God throughout history (as described in the Bible and confirmed by extra-biblical evidence) and how he plans on imitating and counterfeiting God’s redemptive work in the ultimate hybrid of all time whom the Bible calls “the Beast” (Antichrist).

 

Satan’s plan is already well underway and will be accomplished in part via transhumanism and the “alien” deception. These have both been made possible through the teaching of the theory of evolution which, at its core, denies there is a God. Satan has used this denial to pave the way philosophically for the acceptance of going to the next level of humanity and because man denies God, he believes he ought to continue evolving. The trans-humanist movement boasts that man can direct his own destiny through the rewriting of his DNA code. Transhumanists seek to make man into gods by directing his own evolution. Rather than accepting that God originally created man in His image and man is now fallen, but (through Jesus) will be restored to that original and un-fallen image, the trans-humanist insists that man can do it himself. In fact, Trans humanist Richard Seed audaciously declared: “We are going to become gods, period ” Man is ready to forsake the image of the Creator who created him.

 

Satan will use man’s desire to be his own god to deceive him into believing the ultimate lie—that his fallen messengers are both the Creators and saviours of man. He will not do this openly but will deceive mankind through demons which are masquerading as ”aliens” who are spreading the message that the inhabitants of the earth can evolve to be like them and obtain transcendent powers. Finally, the seed of the Serpent will come; he will be a man who will be greater than his fellows, who will understand sinister schemes and shall rise up and become the Antichrist.

GLITCH TECH

Darpa Spent $62 Million Creating Microchips For Humans

WRITTEN BY: GREG WHITE JULY 22, 2016

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is in the process of making a neural-coding device capable of controlling artificial limbs when seeded in the brain. The device has had success in animal studies and the first human trials are set for 2017. The Pentagon has subsidized the institution $62 million to help foster this mind-control technology. Meanwhile, the mainstream media is pushing for the micochipping of children sooner rather than later.

During a recent televised report by NBC News, the news station purported the micro-chipping of children by the state was as normal as bar codes for consumers: “When barcodes first came out in the late 1960s, people were appalled. They were wary of them and did not understand the concept. Today, it is so commonplace, we don’t even notice it. A microchip would work much in the same way.”

This declaration is a reflection of the mentality of the mainstream media, which sees people as objects fit for labeling rather than persons with intrinsic moral value. Although DARPA touts the brain chips as a way to protect children, in actuality, this sort of technology has more to do with control than it does public safety.

Controlling the masses

Whenever the establishment wants to control the masses, they assemble a list of cheap talking points to scare the population into abiding by its agenda. Whenever the mainstream media pushes for vaccines, for instance, they list all the possible ways a person may become very sick and die if they don’t get the shot. And whenever the government wishes to corrode privacy rights, they do so in the name of “protecting” the public from would be “terrorists.”

Several pet owners have already microchiped their dogs to keep tabs on their pets. Therefore, microchip proponents argue, it is not too much of a stretch to start micro chipping children at birth for similar purposes. The problem is most people are not aware of the dangers this reasoning poses, which is why mind-control technology is not being more widely opposed.

According to a statement made by DARPA, the brain chip would:

“[Enable] data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world, feeding digital auditory or visual information into the brain.” and thereby “open the channel between the human brain and modern electronics.”

In short: They are developing mind control chips that can be inserted into the brains of babies from the cradle.

As the Waking Times explains, the military deploys a term known as “mission creep,” which refers to the expansion of a military project beyond its original goals that has yet to foster public support. If the military wants to invade a country, for example, they will first take over nearby regions and establish a military base around the desired country in an effort to boost the likelihood of winning. In the same way the public has been coerced into a number of unjustifiable wars, DARPA is now trying to coerce the public into submitting to mind control.

Google endorses DARPA mind control chips

Last year, CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, attended a Bilderberg conference with former DARPA employee and Google executive Regina Dugan, where he voiced support of DARPA’s technology.

“If you have something that you don’t want anybody to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place,” Schmidt said.

“We don’t need you to type at all because we know here you are, with your permission, we know where you’ve been, with your permission, we can more or less guess what you’re thinking about,” he continued.

Adding to these remarks, Schmidt specifically referred to DARPA’s brain chips in the same interview.

“There’s what I call the creepy line and the Google policy with a lot of these things is to get right up to the creepy line, but not cross it. I would argue that implanting things in your brain is beyond the creepy line…at least for the moment until the technology gets better.”

Without doubt, the mainstream media and DARPA will continue to tout the benefits of this technology without noting all the risks. Due to this, it is on the shoulders of the alternative media to ensure the public isn’t trolled by mind control.

Why the Implantable RFID Chip is Not the Mark of the Beast

 

By Jason Charles,  July 20, 2016

Many people who are simply infatuated with End Times scripture and prophecy are always looking at new technological wonders that deal with human tracking capabilities that could fit the description of the “Mark of the Beast” spoken of in Revelation.

So the question is, is the implantable RFID microchip the Mark of the Beast lauded by Christians for decades? Or is the RFID chip a giant fraud, a devilish red herring technology to distract from a higher technology that is more suitable towards the aims of economically enslaving the rich and poor alike the world over?

We must first understand that essentially, there are two Beasts being discussed in Revelation Chapter 13. The “Image of the Beast” that demands all take a mark, is set up by the 2nd Beast in honor and worship of the 1st Beast.

The 1st Beast (Revelation 13: 1-10)

  • The 1st Beast exercises satanically established, global authority “…and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (Rev. 13:2, also 13:7)

 

  • The 1st Beast himself or power structure is wounded suddenly to the point of death, yet suddenly healed, causing all of the world to wonder in awe at the power of the Beast. “…his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” (Rev. 13:3)

 

  • The 1st Beast’s healing was so momentous that it caused all of the people to both worship the Beast and the Dragon, meaning direct worship of Satan who is seen to be behind the power of the Beast. “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…” (Rev. 13:4)

 

  • The 1st Beast was set up to blasphemy God continually. “And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God…” (Rev. 13:6 also 13:5)

 

  • The 1st Beast sought to kill Christians through war. “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them…” (Rev. 13:7)

 

  • The 1st Beast will be so persuasive, so powerful, and so ruthless every nation and tongue will worship him, save the remnant Christians of this time. “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life…” (Rev.13:8)

 

  • The 1st Beast was allotted a small window of time to rule “power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” (Rev. 13:5)

 

We are then told in verses 11-18 about the rise of the 2nd Beast. We are not told what happened to the 1st, nor are we told how much time transpires between the two Beasts of Revelation.

The 2nd Beast (Revelation 13: 11-18)

  • The 2nd Beast is as powerful as the first in every way. “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him.” (Rev. 13:11)

 

  • The 2nd Beast caused all to worship the 1st Beast, with special emphasis noting that this 1stBeast had a wound that was healed. “…causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” (Rev. 13:11) and then in (Rev. 13:4) that this wound was given by a sword.

 

  • The 2nd Beast has miraculous powers such as fire from the sky (Rev. 13:13) and that these miraculous powers were enough to deceive the masses. “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles…” (Rev. 13:14)

 

  • The 2nd Beast though exercising the authority and power of the 1st saw fit to set up an image of the 1st Beast for mandated worship. “…saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” (Rev. 13:14)

 

  • The 2nd Beast had the power to make an inanimate image of this 1st Beast come alive and also speak. “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak…” (Rev. 13:15)

 

  • The 2nd Beast also gave the power to kill anyone it was determined was not worshiping the Image of the 1st Beast. “…and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. “(Rev. 13:15)

 

  • The 2nd Beast implemented a mandated tracking system that was taken by all people rich and poor, and this system served as the sole means to participate in the marketplace and also could detect who worshiped the Image of the Beast and who didn’t. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” - Revelation 13:15-18

So we have the 1st Beast who is a wounded blasphemer, war monger, and global tyrant, making way for the 2nd Beast who is a miracle worker and tyrant that demands the total religious worship of the Image of the 1st Beast. To assure this worship and participation in the global economy a mark is given to everyone.

The interesting thing about this passage in the beginning of verse 18, the prophet actually encourages people to exercise wisdom and understanding when trying to decipher the meaning behind these cryptic passages. With that in mind let’s look at these passages in detail.

When trying to understand passages like this, we have to look very closely at the words being used to describe these concepts. Let's look at a few words in this passage. Words like “Beast”, “Image of the Beast”, "Receive" and the “Mark” all give very important context as to what the “mark” can be and what it cannot be.

The Greek Word for “Beast” describes an animal. This is a term that is often used in the Bible to convey anyone that is devoid of reason, divine violation, and even a conscience. This is someone who acts according to their own will, passions and law, absent of any fear of God. This is closely related to the definition of anti-Christ. If Christ is for law, brotherly love, charity, and righteousness, then someone who is antichrist is set in opposition to Christ and works through their devilish, beastly nature without regard to what God wants of us and even mocks and blasphemies God.

θηρίον thēríon, thay-ree'-on; diminutive from the same as G2339; a dangerous animal:—(venomous, wild) beast.

The Greek translation of the word for image is where we get the word icon. Like the religious paintings and icons of the Renaissance era, it literally means a replica or likeness. This word is often associated with idols and denotes a religious sentiment and worship being directed at them.

εἰκών eikṓn, i-kone'; from G1503; a likeness, i.e. (literally) statue, profile, or (figuratively) representation, resemblance:—image.

The word for mark, is used for both marking or scratching on an engraving or statue, and also used to describe the process of marking an animal or slave signifying that it is property.

χάραγμα cháragma, khar'-ag-mah; from the same as G5482; a scratch or etching, i.e. stamp (as a badge of servitude), or scupltured figure (statue):—graven, mark.

Now an interesting word that we have to look at when speaking of the Mark of the Beast is the word "receive" in verse 13:16. This word in almost every reference has to do with the act of giving and receiving, like a promotion or gift. It is used in a way that indicates something the receiver recognizes as being positive, something they willingly accept.

δίδωμι dídōmi, did'-o-mee; G1325  a prolonged form of a primary verb (which is used as an alternative in most of the tenses); to give...

So essentially what we have in these last couple of verses of chapter 13 dealing with the Mark of the Beast is it is a mark of economic enslavement, it is a etched or a carved symbol of worship, and it is also willingly accepted by the masses who worship the Image of the 1st Beast.

The Tech

Our modern minds immediately go to overlaying technology onto the meaning of these passages, the reason being is only technology can allow for the tracking, control, and even ability to remotely kill someone who is not in possession of the mark. Almost everyone in Christian circle immediately thinks of the implantable RFID microchip popularized by Dr. Carl Sander's.

There are three problems with this understanding.

One, nobody will joyfully take a implantable microchip under the skin, this is not something people will receive willingly. This is something that will have to be forced onto a person without their consent. The threat of death, would just heighten the rejection of such a technology.

Two, the RFID chip is not a real solution. The RFID chip has been shown to cause cancer around the areas of implantation. These chips are most often used in animals and pets for now and there is case after case of these animals developing cancer around the site of injection. This has been shown to be true in multiple studies as reported in the Washington Post.

"The transponders were the cause of the tumors," said Keith Johnson, a retired toxicologic pathologist, explaining in a phone interview the findings of a 1996 study he led at the Dow Chemical Co. in Midland, Mich." (Washington Post)

Also see the website antichips.com.

Three, the RFID chip was popularized as the "Mark of the Beast" in the 80's and 90's by the man Dr. Carl Sander's who toured all over America speaking to church congregations. He stated that he oversaw a 100 man team that worked on the RFID chip in these lectures. These claims after extensive investigation turned out to be total fabrications and lies in an attempt to build credibility with his audience.

"When I pressed Carl on this issue, he told me that in the beginning of his meetings, he tried to preach Christ and holiness and call people to repentance, but the response was not there.  However, when he began talking about the end times and the development of the microchip, people responded in mass, and suddenly he was drawn into this message. Carl told me that with each meeting the old LIE WOULD GET BIGGER AND BIGGER. Suddenly he found himself back with the old lie, and he did not know how to get out of it. Carl then told me he felt that the message was so important, he began to invent his degrees in order to have more credibility with people. The Lie was now getting bigger and bigger as Carl became known nationally and internationally. Then followed the TV interviews, the radio programs, meetings in large churches and prophecy conferences." (Source)

 

Conclusion

So when we think about the Mark of the Beast we need to keep in mind that first we must see the rise of not just one global tyrannt, but two before it even comes into fruition. This is something we are yet to see. Also we need to keep in mind that this whole idea of implantable microchip is largely a red herring. The technology doesn't work because of the effect the RFID frequencies have on soft tissue, and it is based around a total lie, popularized by a conman and nothing less.

There are plenty of other technologies that can fill our imagination with images of the Mark of the Beast. We now have advanced biometric scanners that can read facial "forehead" features andfingerprints from a distance of 20 ft as you pass through the door. Consider the infamous 3D scanners used in airports by the TSA, this is the same technology that can be used for apparel design, and entertainment and gaming. Meaning they can take a real life scan of a person and develop 3D models of a person complete with hi resolution texture of every hair, wrinkle, mole, and fingerprint. That should make people ask why are they forcing everybody through these machines? Is it really to take high resolution biometric scans, or security like they say? It has been recently reported that the FBI now has the largest biometric database in the world and that there are technologies that can even identify you through your thermal heat signature now.

So the church body needs to stop focusing on the RFID as being the Mark of the Beast, this is a limited application that doesn't fit the description in Revelation 13. What we need to do is recognize that technology has surpassed our wildest imaginations, and now there are systems in use that can mark us, and track us without even laying a hand on us. Whether it is our facial features or the beloved smart phone in our pockets or an actual engraved mark on our skin we won't know until the system is totally globalized around a central figure who is blasphemous to God to the infinite degree.

We are most likely a long way off from something like this, but the language dealing with the Image of the Beast is especially telling. Considering this is something that was inanimate or an object that comes alive. Does that mean, a walking talking robot in the resemblance of the 1st Beast, or a computerized Artificial Intelligence system? Who really knows, but what we do know is the Bible is absolutely clear not to take the Mark, and not to worship the Beast in anyway shape or form, even if means having to live outside of the economical system in place at that time. Revelation Chapter 17 deals with the interpretation of the passages in Chapter 13, and makes it abundantly clear that the wrath of God will be poured out on all those that accept the Mark, and worship the Beast.

Those that don't accept this system of worship and commerce no matter what it materializes as are shown in Revelations 20:4 to be richly rewarded.

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I sawthe souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." Revelation 20:4

Let's be clear, we have technologies that seem to be the fulfillment of this prophecy, but there are many, many things that need to happen before the Beast arises and implements this system. Instead we need to keep working toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission. As interesting as these passages are, by the time all these things come to pass, these current technologies so many finger as the Mark of the Beast will look like a child's toy next to the actual mechanism of control implemented by that final Beast.

It is urgent that we win souls to Christ, as well as be aware of the enemy, and not given over to fear in these times.

SUICIDE: THE WAR FOR YOUR

SOUL

By Abby Charland 10/05/16 SOURCE:-(http://www.stevequayle.com/index.php?s=58)

“And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby you are sealed until the day of redemption.”
--Ephesians 4:30

In this present time, there has arisen a spirit of fear and despair in some of the people of God, manifesting as the temptation to commit suicide. Many are asking for counsel in regards to this painful and troubling issue.  As shocking as it may seem, some Christians are wondering if suicide is sometimes justified, and therefore also wondering if they might still attain eternal life in heaven after killing themselves.  Some have even gone so far as to ask men and women appointed to a role of leadership amongst the people of God to validate suicidal inclinations and even to endorse the idea that suicide is understandable, a pardonable sin, covered by the blood of Jesus.

There certainly are many disturbing factors to consider here. The most obvious is that such a great many of the Christian faith are so distressed. One realizes, in witnessing the prevalence of this problem currently facing the church, that it is necessary to address it, not from the standpoint of the world, but from a biblical standpoint.

Another troubling factor in this situation is the lack of direct relationship with Jesus, who has told us that He is the only Way to God; so many Christians these days, rather than exert the effort to seek out the heart and mind of God, through the Holy Spirit, and in following the example and teaching of Jesus and through study of the Holy Word, instead put their faith in humans and human organizations.

This spirit of weakness and, to be direct-- this spirit of laziness-- decays the faith of not only the individual who is struggling, but also can undermine the well-being of the Church as a whole.  Each one of us is required to work out our own calling and election. In Philippians 2:12 we read,
“Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation in fear and trembling.”

While it is a good and proper thing for any who count themselves as members in the body of Christ to seek support and encouragement from each other, to “bear one another’s burden” (Galatians 6:2), it can be a pitfall for any Christian, who, rather than develop a true reliance upon Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God’s Word, instead submits his or her life and will to limited human understanding by seeking the wisdom of men rather than the wisdom of the God.  In Galatians 6:4-5 each of us are instructed to “prove” our “own work” and “bear” our “own burden”. So the advice here implies a balancing of responsibility to love one another with the responsibility to hold ourselves accountable to God.

In Galatians 6:7 we are admonished,
“Be ye not deceived: God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap.”
It also bears note, as to the deleterious effects upon those who have been appointed to positions of leadership within the Body of Christ, when people, perhaps unknowingly, tempt their fellow Christians to pride and an assumption of authority that may cause them to err. It can be quite a heavy burden to bear, to be put in a position that if one makes a mistake in this dilemma, a fellow believer might commit suicide. 

Rather than expect those appointed to leadership in the Church to constantly attend to our needs, perhaps we should seek to become spiritually strong though our own relationship with God through Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and through knowledge of holy scripture.  We who rely on the faithful service of those that God has called to leadership might carefully consider how our failure to rely upon God and our avoidance of the study of scripture could distract such people from their endeavors to serve God and the Christian community. There is a distinct difference between asking for encouragement or guidance and spiritual weakness brought about through spiritual sloth.

This might seem harsh, but considering the gravity of the consequences of suicide, such a blunt assessment is intended only to warn everyone involved, adequately and honestly addressing the very real dangers inherent involved in this particular issue. This writer does not intend to hurt those who are hurting, but rather to warn them of their peril, and to redirect those who falter at the edge of the abyss to the biblical guidance so generously provided by God to every member of the household of faith.

DEFINING SUICIDE
To address the issue of suicide, one must first understand what it is. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines suicide as “the act or an instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally, especially by a person of years of discretion and of sound mind.” This definition clearly states that suicide is not the result of childish errors, reckless accident or insanity, but rather, a conscious CHOICE that a person is accountable for.

To more completely understand what suicide is, it is useful to compare it to the concept of murder, since it is murder which has a comparable degree of intentionality and premeditation to it.  Murder is defined by Merriam Webster as: “the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought.”

So, to see how suicide and murder are related, one can see that both require conscious choice, some degree of pre-meditation, and a degree of malice, (“malice” meaning simply that the intent to cause harm underlies the behavior).  Murder is the intentional killing of another human without justification, legal or moral.

PROPAGANDA OF DEATH
This brings us to the question of whether suicide ever has a legal or moral justification. The world tells us that suicide can be justified by the physical or mental suffering of the person who commits the act.  As we move, ever more quickly, into a genocidal, global order, the voices in government and media increasingly propagate the concept of “the right to choose” and “death with dignity”.  Physician assisted suicide is represented as an act of compassion, and increases in diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, are represented as too costly for society and families to bear.

This is the typical manipulative propaganda that almost will certainly precede widespread physician-assisted end of life “care” (suicide).  Even now, the withdrawal of treatment is increasingly viewed as cost-effective and compassionate.  Patients are encouraged to obtain living wills and advanced directives, with the particular intention of limiting life-saving medical intervention such as provision of nutrients and fluids. DNR orders (Do Not Resuscitate) are held in place by rule of law.  This prevents medical professionals from reviving a patient, even when they normally would do so and even when the patient would be restored to a conscious state.

While in many cases, the endless and costly continuance of life that requires machines to keep the person physically alive while they are “brain-dead” can be seen as a useless interference with the natural death of a person, the DNR is often used in quite a different situation, when the patient has simply determined that they no longer want to live.  Whether this is right or not is not the point here.  The point is how the public is increasingly being numbed to the idea of the withdrawal of inconvenient or costly care, with the intention of an increased the social acceptance of medically imposed death and assisted suicide.

As societies increasingly implement policies of eugenics and genocide such as abortion, homosexuality, population control and war, cultural propagandists also are increasingly using media platforms to encourage and justify murder and suicide. Racist violence, spouse abuse, child abuse, abortion, police violence, political violence, and violence against the self are all on the increase. Torture and genocide are continuously represented as necessary and justified by politicians and in the media.

 

THE CHRISTAIN PATH
What is the Christian to believe in these matters? As always, the Christian path is found through relationship with Jesus, through the Holy Spirit and in the Word of God. While seeking fellowship with other Christians is highly desirable, this is not meant to be a substitute for the direct leadership from the Holy Spirit. 

In 1 Peter 5:6-11 we read,
Vs.6-11: “Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in good time:  Casting all your care upon him, for he cares for you.  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary, the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour.  Who resist, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. But the God of all grace who has called you unto his eternal glory by Jesus Christ, after that you have suffered a little while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.  Amen.”

In this passage quite a bit becomes clear.  That it is the hand of God that we must intentionally submit to, and that if we are obedient in this respect, we will ultimately be blessed.  That God is the One who we should cast our cares upon, for he cares for and loves us perfectly. That we must be ever watchful for the presence of the Adversary, who seeks to violently assimilate us, and that while he may accomplish this in those who are not saved, our course must be different.  That the God of all grace, though Jesus, promises to help and calm us, to perfect us, for the purpose of His glorification and towards the establishment of his kingdom.

 
ACCURATE LANGUAGE IN PUSUIT OF UNDERSTANDING

It seems that the only real difference between murder and suicide is the intended victim; simply put, suicide is “self-murder”.  It is important to clarify definitions, as the language has been adulterated and undermined, perhaps intentionally, so as to obscure some obvious things, such as the “lawful killing” of another human is not necessarily not moral, as can be seen, for example, when a government executes dissidents or when a woman obtains an abortion.  While this is technically legal homicide, in the mind of a person with a fully developed conscience, and in the perfect mind of God, it can never be seen as moral. 

The new morality of Marxist/Feminists speaks of how women are twice made to be victims if they are “forced” to carry an unwanted pregnancy, as in the case of rape or incest.  Facts not tolerated in the discussion include, for example, the reality that the only force involved is the force of the termination of the pregnancy.  They want to describe the most innocent and vulnerable of lives as a “fetus” or a mass of cells, even likening it to an invasive tumor.  They never want to admit that without imposing violent force, that a human being will be born and live a life.  That since this child had no part in the crime that took place at the moment of its conception it should not legally have to pay the ultimate penalty as the ultimate innocent bystander.  And the fact that a new life can come into the world as a consequence of a crime, speaks more to the grace and healing love of God than to the victimization of women.

This is an example of how the manipulation of definitions and the artful employment of subtle emotional manipulation to obfuscate and confuse is one way that people can be deceived into misunderstanding and error.

It is quite legitimate then, to ask if the definitions currently used around suicide adequate to define the spiritual dilemma of the Christian, who is engaged in spiritual warfare. To answer this specific question, one needs to contemplate the point of view of God, the Creator of life, and the point of view of Satan, the enemy of life. For the purpose of this article, we will look to the Holy Bible to apprehend an understanding of these opposing perspectives. 

In this analysis, it is of also necessary to study the underlying mental processes that affect the individual human, the societal decay that may exacerbate or even foster suicidality, and the innate human strengths and weakness that have been exploited by certain societal structures, such as media, education, and the government.  Finally, it is vital to understand suicidal thinking and behavior from a biblical perspective as well.  In this examination of the underlying motives of the human being who is struggling with suicide, it is hoped then, to explain and magnify the spiritual prescription for this spiritual dilemma.

DIVINE PERSPECTIVE AND HONEST SELF-EXAMINATION IN A SCRIPTURAL CONTEXT
While modern psychology implies that suicidality is the result of low self-esteem and emotional depression, when one examines this more deeply one finds quite the opposite: an attitude of selfish arrogance and pride.

How so? Let us first ask some hard questions.

  • Does it not seem quite obvious that to take one’s own life is to assume a godlike authority?
  • Is suicide a conscious choice to rebel against some situation in life that a person feels is unjust, but not in a way to positively act to improve the situation, but rather to pronounce a final and brutal judgement upon it?
  • Does not the act of suicide effectively devalue and discard the gracious gift of the blood of Jesus?
  • Does it not manifest a denial of the promises of God, and in essence call God a liar?
  • Does such a decision not arrogantly assume that the creation knows better than the Creator what the course of events should be?
  • Does this decision glorify God, or does it perhaps blame God?
  • And if a Christian wants to be able self-murder and still have a reward in heaven, does this not frustrate the grace of God?

    As Christians, we are already under the redemption of the blood of Jesus Christ.  We have been saved, therefore, from the curse of sin and death through his sacrifice.  In 1 Corinthians 15:22 we read,
    “For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive.”

    And in Galatians 2:21, we read,
    “I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness comes by the law then Christ is dead in vain.” 

    What is the Word of God telling us here?  Perhaps that to try to attain redemption through the Law (in self-righteousness or through exertion of self-will) is to frustrate (hold back) the grace of God, and if a professing Christian chooses self-will over the provision of God, he makes the sacrifice of Jesus meaningless.  And when a person commits self-murder, they intentionally turn from the will of God to their own (albeit false) self-righteousness.

    Certainly, there can hardly be a more grievous sin, than in denying the priceless gift of the atoning blood of Jesus. To make his life and death meaningless, would be the ultimate act of arrogance, and certainly a sin against the Holy Spirit.

    In this light, let us consider the situation of Moses, who, when told by God to “speak” to the rock in the desert, to bring forth water for the people, was disobedient, and instead struck the rock, not once but twice.  

    It is significant that Moses was angry and in this action said,
    “Hear now, ye rebels; must we (Aaron and I) fetch you water out of this rock?” (Numbers 20:10)

    In this bold statement, Moses makes HIMSELF the judge of the people, and expresses HIS OWN authority in the rebellious act of smiting the rock, not just once, but twice.  He also puts himself in the role of God as provider, not with grace, but with judgement. This is a picture of a human (Moses) misusing the gift of God’s grace through an action of the human will, rather than asking to receive it, as God had instructed him. 

    There is a warning here to any who feel that it is their proper role to pronounce judgement against themselves or others, especially those of the household of faith. The consequences for usurping the authority of God and misappropriating his blessings are illustrated in Numbers 20:12, where God says, “Because you believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore shall ye not bring this congregation into the land which I have promised them.”

    In other words, as a consequence of his unbelief, Moses was denied entry into the Promised Land. How does this relate to how God might judge suicide?  Let us consider the rest of the story.
    In this passage (Numbers 20:10) the meaning of the word “rock” can also be translated as God’s fortress, or shelter. (Please see Strong’s Concordance H5553.)  In 1 Corinthians 10:4 the Rock of Moses is explained to be a picture of Christ. “And they did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.”
    So the picture is that Jesus is our refuge, our hiding place in times of trouble—our salvation. This refuge is not something that we deserve, nor can we accomplish for ourselves. It is a profound example of the infinite love of God for humanity.

    Consider John 3:16,
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
    We, as Christians, know that we have not, nor can we ever earn salvation, and it is wrong for us to assume a stance of anger or judgement to any whom we feel may not be pleasing to God (including ourselves), or a stance of discouragement or fear that the Lord will not be faithful to his promise to sustain us. An attitude of compassion and forgiveness is necessary for learning to take place. Human beings can learn from their mistakes, given the fact of God’s grace and mercy.

    Because salvation is an underserved gift, the only way, it seems, to be excluded from this gift would be to willfully choose to reject it.  It seems that suicide is a particularly dangerous idea because of it is a person’s final act. So it is particularly dangerous for any Christian to take such an action, based on an attitude of judging God’s times and purposes, whether this is out of anger, fear or despair. Suicide therefore can be recognized to be a willful usurpation of power that belongs in God’s hands, and a denial of the gift of salvation by grace.

    THE CHRISTIAN SACRIFICE
    In these present days, we witness some simultaneously commit suicide and murder of others in service of Allah. We witness others setting their bodies ablaze in protest of perceived wrongs of governments.  What does the Creator of all life expect from those in the household of faith? In Romans 12:1-2, Paul writes,
    “I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a LIVING SACRIFICE (my emphasis), holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be you not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and perfect, will of God.

    So, the acceptable sacrifice of the Christian is to live a life dedicated to God, to lay down that life in daily service to God, to live for Him, out of love, gratitude and obedience, and certainly not to commit self-murder.  It is to live a life devoted to the glorification of God, the daily subjugation of the self, and therefore certainly not ever desirous of God’s position or authority. This was beautifully-- and perfectly-- accomplished by our Lord Jesus in his life on earth. It is important to remember daily the heavenly provision of grace.

    SATAN’S GOALS, TECHNIQUES AND OUR SPIRITUAL DEFENSE

    Perhaps the attitude of Satan is best defined in John 8:44 in the words of Jesus Christ:
    “You are of your father, the Devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. ”

    The Adversary accomplishes murder through lies and manipulation. He appeals to human resentments, selfishness and fear, constantly attempting to manipulate us into serving his evil agenda, rather than serving God.  Satan wants only death for humanity and the destruction of God’s creation.  It seems that suicide of a Christian would particularly delight him, as it enlists our cooperation in the denial of Jesus’ power to save us.

    When a Christian is engaged in spiritual warfare and contending with the specific question of suicide, in strengthening their belief in the salvation of Jesus Christ he or she can mightily be protected.  In Romans 8:28, we are assured,
    “We know that all things work together for those that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.”

    When a person’s faith is challenged, the prayer to God to help our unbelief is probably the most important weapon in our arsenal. In Mark 9: 23 and 24, we read the story of a Jesus casting a demon out of a child:
    And Jesus said unto him, if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.  And straightaway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe: help thou my unbelief.
    And this demon was cast out, this demon that had thrown the child into the fire and into the water many times, trying to kill that child--a demon of suicide.
    Let us know examine a question that some Christians have asked.  Does the promise of salvation and mercy extend to those who would take their own lives?  Ultimately, that is something for God to judge.  Let each of us therefore to seek God’s guidance in all things.  Let each of us remember the gracious gift of salvation, and continually seek God’s perfect will and not our own limited human understanding, bearing in mind the story of Satan tempting our Lord Jesus in Mathew 4:5-7. “Then the devil took him up into the holy city, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning you; and in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone.  Jesus said unto him: It is written, again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”

    Here we have exactly the same temptation set before Jesus.  Notice How Satan uses scripture and also subtly tries to entice Jesus into an attitude of pride in the God’s promise of protection. Jesus’s response clearly puts this promised protection in the context of obedience to God’s will, by responding with the appropriate word (from Deuteronomy 6:16). Notice how the Jesus made use of scripture to refute the temptation. Knowledge of scripture is a strong defense against the treacherous manipulation of the devil.

    EARTHLY REWARDS VS HEAVENLY REWARDS
    “For He hath said, I will never leave thee nor forsake thee. So that you might boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do to me.” (Hebrews 13:6)
    Sadly, many Christians mistake this promise to mean that, unlike Jesus, they will not tested in their faith or be required to demonstrate obedience in difficult circumstances. This subtle trick of the adversary leaves people wide open to attack, for when they suffer in this life, they then come to the conclusion that God has failed them. Thus, we must be aware that any of us can be deceived through a lack of knowledge.

    THE FATHER OF LIES AND THE FIRST MURDERER
    Let us now study the first lie, written of in Genesis 3. First, it should be noted that the serpent is described as being “subtle”.  (Genesis 3:1) How might we understand subtlety, in the context of a lie? Perhaps it is an attack that, in this case, is not obvious, which is intended to draw a person into a state of confusion, and that which is intended to trick or confuse.  It is the insinuation of an idea, but not openly. Thus, the subtle serpent inquires of Eve in Genesis 3:1, “Yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”

    Now, the serpent knew very well what God said.  This question was not asked for the purpose of understanding God’s law, but to treacherously imply that perhaps God was a liar. This kind of insinuation took advantage of the naïve and innocent woman, who did not hear of forbidden fruit directly, but through her husband. The bible tells us in Genesis 2:16 -17 that when God told Adam the “rules”, Eve had not yet been created. So, one can infer that Eve was most likely was relying on what Adam had told her. (The vulnerability of people who rely on the understanding of others cannot be emphasized enough!)
    This shows how the institution of marriage is the structure that was formed by God to protect us, and the serpent, knowing this, did not approach Adam directly, neither did he approach the couple together.  He artfully contrived instead to get between Adam and Eve, and to speak to Eve when she was alone, making easy work for himself in tricking her, and then a similarly easy work of entrapping Adam, whose vulnerability was his love for Eve.

    Now, one has to note here that many will be offended by this description, in that many these days have a spirit of resentment against God’s laws and the structures of authority that are built into human relationships.  In Genesis 2:18 we read that God made the woman to be a helper to the man.  This is not in the least bit degrading to the woman, as the Marxist/feminists would have us believe. Rather, it is simply one example of the interdependence and balance in relationships, found everywhere throughout creation. To deny that there is an order to creation is simply to live in delusion.  Does anyone deny the obvious fact that animals and plants have an order to them? Does the carrot eat the rabbit? Even the Darwinians must acknowledge the natural order.  It is something to resent, for example, that the planets have relationships and defined paths around the sun, or that the electrons spin around the nucleus of an atom?  Can any earthly creature rebel against the physical requirements to eat, or to drink, or to sleep—and expect to long survive?

    Just as a woman relies on her husband for provision and protection, the man relies upon his wife for tenderness and understanding. These qualities are neither superior nor inferior, but complimentary. Likewise, the children are dependent upon their parents for sustenance and guidance. Thus we can see how the in Marxist attacks on the family much has been done to isolate individuals from the natural safety that God built into the relationships of the family. The destruction of the Creator’s protective structure of the family has been brought about insidiously, secretly and deliberately; the subsequent moral and spiritual decay was the means to an end (divide and conquer) and an end in itself, for the perversion and destruction of the created image and likeness of God within humanity is the underlying intent motivating every action of the devil.

    One thing we can remember from the serpent’s treachery in the Garden of Eden was how he contrived to tempt Eve when she was ALONE. These days, many people have been isolated from the safety and protection of the family, and so have been made extremely vulnerable to the manipulation of the evil one. This is one of the most significant factors when considering how people are increasingly vulnerable to suicide.

    PRIDE, REBELLION AND ENVY
    In this study we now must address, also, the societal magnification of the sins of pride, rebellion and envy.  When considering the issue of suicide, on the surface it can seem like a problem of low self-esteem, rather than pride.  One has to be willing to look into this deeply, to understand it fully.

    In Ezekiel 28:13-19 we read of the arrogance and pride of Lucifer. We can understand that the desire to usurp God’s authority is rooted in pride.  This is the corruption that was found in Lucifer, causing him to be cast out of his previous position. Lucifer did not want to honor God’s creation of mankind, and in fact he envied humanity, thus wishing to destroy what he could not ever have. He wanted praise and power only for himself. He resented God’s authority, and felt that he should be as god.  So, in pride he did not submit to God’s authority, and in arrogance, he made war against his own Creator.  Not only did he thus fall, but he enticed a multitude of other angelic beings to also rebel against God’s order, and to fall with him.

    What might be some of the ways that humans were created in God’s likeness that angels were not? One is the gift of procreation. Another, less obvious human quality that is created in God’s likeness is the ability to empathize and to show compassion.  This attribute does not appear in scripture in the attributes of the angels.  While there certainly is much that we don’t know about angels, when we witness the envious and destructive attacks upon the human heart, one can infer that this attribute of compassion is also envied, at least by the fallen angels.

    Angels do have superiority to humans in their intellect, and immortality, and power.  So then we can see exactly how and where the fallen ones specifically attack humanity, seeking to corrupt and destroy all human life-- from angels leaving their first estate and impregnating human females, to modern day genetic engineering and transhumanism; from cultivating narcissism in our youth to tempting men and women to resent and betray one another.  Ultimately, Satan and the other fallen angels misuse their intelligence, immortality and power to corrupt and murder all of humanity.  First, they manipulate and pervert our sexuality and our ability to reproduce, interfering with and tampering with the human DNA. Secondly, they manipulate and corrupt our hearts, tempting us to pity ourselves, envy others, and resentfully rebel against God.  Thus Satan seeks to re-create humanity in his own ugly image, leading us to share in his condemnation.

    The unwillingness to be obedient and to conform oneself to the structures and order of God can then be recognized as the seed of all sin.  Whether it is a mighty cherub in heaven who aspires to overthrow God, who resents the requirement of obedience, or whether it is men and women who do not wish to be constrained within the structure of marriage and the boundaries of their gender as ordained by the Creator, or even if it is children who have essentially been imbued with narcissism by the corporate State-- it all ultimately amounts to the same thing: pride and rebellion.

    The father of lies hates all that is godly and beautiful, and he seeks to corrupt and destroy all life. In particular, he seeks to nullify all of God’s promises, including the promise of salvation. Throughout the world, the structures of marriage and the family, as well as all other created moral boundaries have been systemically attacked though law and policy, propaganda, and in the educational system. Thus we have arrived in a day when women murder their own children, promiscuity, betrayal and sexual perversions such as homosexuality, bestiality, sadism, masochism, necrophilia, pedophilia, and transgender mutilation are celebrated. Scientists bring humanity to the brink of extinction out of arrogance and an inability to submit to any boundary of ethics or morality. Transhumanists, in the pursuit of eternal life instead create abominations, and ultimately, the destruction of the human soul. One is reminded of that first lie of the serpent in Genesis 3:4, 5
    “You shall not surely die; For God doth know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
    This brings in the issue of rebellion. Consider as an example, the young child who doesn’t want to wash his hands before supper, and insists he shouldn’t have to. Why, he cries? And the frustrated mother, who has sought to explain until her face turns blue, finally exclaims “Because I said so!” The child responds “You’re just being mean!” The child doesn’t know why the parent has this rule. But given time, the child will grow to understand.

    In the Garden of Eden, Satan interfered in the maturation process of humanity with his envious and murderous lies. And these subtle lies were intended to confuse, to manipulate, to distort, and to blame God for the very intentions that Satan himself actually had.  It is Satan that wants to deceive and kill us, and in the beginning he deviously enlisted our cooperation to those ends. For what was the eating of the forbidden fruit, but a sort of suicide?  Indeed, there is nothing new under the sun! (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

    THE ATTITUDES AND BELIEFS THAT FOSTER SUICIDE IN THE HUMAN MIND
    “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom you will serve; whether the gods that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Joshua 24:15)

    When contemplating the human mental processes in suicide, one can see some relationships to the serpent’s lies in the Garden of Eden so long ago. First, the enemy introduces leading questions, such as “Why should I have to endure this or that suffering?  What is the purpose of it? Maybe God is being unfair, to require this of me. Or, why do I not have the things I think I should have? Why is God expecting me to endure humiliation, or rejection, or ill health, or poverty? Or, I don’t understand, therefore, I shouldn’t have to obey.” This kind of thinking is evidence of the subtle lies and manipulative ploys of Satan insinuated subtly into the human mind.

    However, in comparing modern day Christian’s contemplation of suicide to the fall of our first parents in the garden, there is one crucial difference.  Adam and Eve were naïve. They had no experience of sin or death, and they did not have the example of Jesus to follow.   

    We, as modern day Christians, have access to the divine Word and to the example of Jesus faithful obedience.  We not only have an understanding of sin and death, but we should have an understanding of God’s righteous authority and His eternal love.  We also have access to his word and are blessed with the Holy Spirit.  As followers of Jesus, we cannot claim to be naïve in this respect.  And if our first parents, who WERE naïve, were sentenced to death for the sin of disobedience, what then would be a probable outcome for willful, fully knowledgeable disobedience?

    CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE AND THE HUMAN WILL
    Let’s now consider the story of our Lord Jesus, in Mathew 26:38-44 as he prayed in the garden of Gethsemane, just prior to his arrest, torture and murder.  He was alone, his friends having fallen asleep. He pleads with God three times that the cup of death might not be required of him.  His prayer was this:
    “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless, not my will, but thine, be done.”

    In other words, even Jesus, who was perfect, the only begotten Son of God, even he had to wrestle at times to bring himself into submission to God’s requirement.  One is horrified by what might have been the fate of all humanity if Jesus had NOT been willing to subjugate himself to God’s will, or if in his despair he had taken his own life in order to escape the pain and humiliation of the torture and death on the cross.  Can any honest person say that it doesn’t matter, the manner of Jesus’ death? And if not, can anyone say that our manner of death is irrelevant?

    And if Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, was required in God’s infinite wisdom to humble himself—to be obedient unto death, and faithful in all things-- how can we, as Christian’s, ever please God if we refuse submit ourselves to His perfect will?  Shall we decide what it is fitting for the Creator to require of us? And if we do, what are we then saying about His grace? Can a person rebel against God’s will without cutting one’s soul off from such grace?

    SATANIC DOCTRINES OF DECEPTION
    At this point, it is perhaps useful to consider the modern concept of “moral relativism”. Basically, this concept means that truth is relative, that each individual has their own truth, and that there is no such thing as Truth in the spiritual sense, that one man’s meat is another man’s poison, as it were.

    The danger in this concept is that it denies the legitimate and beautiful order of God, and it creates a mentality of “anything goes.” So, Satanists say that the pursuit of one’s own will and pleasure is the highest law.

    The assertion that suicide only harms the individual concerned- and even that harm is considered to be questionable-- obviously lacks depth.  Spend a few moments with the families left behind, and then assert that suicide isn’t harmful to others. If there are children involved, the legacy of cowardice and death is a might force for a generational curse.  Even modern psychiatry has to acknowledge the greatly increased risk of suicide in those who had a family member that killed themselves.

    In this highly willful and conscious action, one is taking control away from God and putting that control in one’s own hands. The action of self-murder seems to assume that God’s promises are obligations to us, rather than the rewards for obedience. The consequences of self-murder may not be easily apparent, for example, in the case of the person who despairs at the oncoming one-world government and all the horrors soon to be brought upon Christians as prophesied in the word of God. Why not commit suicide, to prevent the Beast System from delighting in atrocities against God’s people?
    Why, indeed.  Well, suicide would hardly be a testimony of faith, now would it? Rather, it would be the exact opposite, a testimony of the power of the adversary to get us to consciously step away from God’s provision of grace. Satan, once again, manipulates God’s created beings to willingly participate in their own destruction.  Suicide is the ultimate act of selfishness, for it has no regard for the pain and disillusionment of those left behind.  It does not inspire others to faith, or to act with courage, or to praise God.  It speaks of the defeat of love, order and reason, and then exalts the devil, who we might envision declaring brazenly, “You and your God conquer nothing, but in this action give this Evil One the victory.”

    One could even contend that this enticing of a Christian to self-murder would be the PREFERRED blood-sacrifice, in Satan’s opinion.  The evil one must find particular delight when a person of God is turns to service to the father of lies and murder. In John 8:44 Jesus says,
    “You are of your father, the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

    THE ARMOR OF GOD AND VICTORIOUS SPIRITUAL WARFARE
    Ask, and it shall be given you; seek and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. (Mathew 7:7)
    God provides much perfect counsel regarding how to protect ourselves from suicide, and other spiritual attacks. Let us consider Ephesians 6:10-18. 
    Vs.10: Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. (Strength comes from God through Jesus.)
    Vs. 11: Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (Make a conscious decision to arm yourself against expected attacks).
    Vs. 12: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Understand who your enemy is, for he surely knows all about you! Know the tactics of subtle lies and emotional manipulation.)
    Vs. 13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. (Follow the counsel from God’s Word, until death, thereby to live forever with Jesus.)
    Vs. 14: Stand therefore, with your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness (protection of sexuality and the heart come through consciously choosing to follow God’s righteous commandments-- through obedience.)
    Vs. 15: And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Righteous actions will be guided and protected in study of God’s word, and in sharing the gift of the gospel.)
    Vs. 16: Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith you shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked (Through belief in God’s promises and in the redemption purchased for us by Jesus Christ, no one and nothing can truly harm you.)
    Vs. 17: And take the helmet of salvation (the belief in Jesus, that he died for our sins, and that he was raised from the dead-- this is what protects the believer’s mind) and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (biblical knowledge and application of it in one’s life is our weapon of victory against lies and manipulations of the adversary.)
    Vs. 18: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit personal (relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit), and watching thereunto with all perseverance (vigilance as to the times and events in the world without giving up will inform the faithful as to any possible dangers) and supplication for all saints (prayer for the household of faith will strengthen your connections in the Church and build social support-- being human, we have need of this also.)

    THE CHOICE

    While we, as believers, have been offered the most loving and marvelous gift of salvation though Jesus Christ, let’s not be dishonest with ourselves about what is at stake. In 2 Peter 1: 9, 10 we read,
    “But he that lacks these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and has forgotten that he was purged from the old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if you do these things, you shall never fall.”

    Each of us must be sober and vigilant in making our calling and election sure.  To grieve the Holy Spirit; to call God a liar; to commit murder; to rebel against God; to make the salvation of Jesus Christ meaningless—these are some of the ways that a Christian, in the act of suicide, would step away from God’s loving provision and away from Jesus.  Suicide is a choice.
    For the Christian believer, this choice to self-murder ultimately means nothing less than to be eternally damned, having made a final decision to step away from Divine grace and love, and into Hell: knowingly, willfully and permanently.

    THE GATES OF HEAVEN
    Let’s consider Jesus’ promise to Peter, in Mathew 16:18-19 he promised that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the true followers of Jesus. Many are familiar these days with this promise, given all the current efforts of the powers that be to open the gates of Hell. But in verse 19, Jesus went even further.  He said:
    “And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose upon earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
    Now, that’s a pretty strong statement about the meaning of victorious spiritual warfare, is it not? And in Isaiah 60:18, we read:
    “Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.”
    Over and over again, in scripture, there is a spiritual prescription for pride, envy, self-pity and fear. This prescription is gratitude and praise. In Ephesians 5:19-20, we read,
    “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    And further, in 2 Corinthians 6:10 we read,
    “As sorrowful, but always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing and yet possessing all things.”
    So our best protection is salvation through God’s precious gift of his only begotten Son, and the key that opens the gates of God’s kingdom is praise. When we, as Christians, realize the profound gift of salvation, and fill our hearts with gratitude for this incredible gift; when we praise God in everything, even our tribulations; if we remain steadfast in our Earthly walk, laying all of our concerns and difficulties at the Savior’s feet, we properly use our will to bind ourselves to the Eternal God with our belief in Jesus, and therefore the heavenly gates of Divine grace are opened. This is not something others can do for us, but it is given to us, if we choose obedience and faith. In Revelations 2:7 Jesus tells us:
    “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says unto the churches: to him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.”  
    So how could we as Christians ever allow any small and temporary thing; any foolish pride or selfish desire; any fear or sorrow; any pain or humiliation; any self-pity or resentment; any temptation or lie-- to separate us from the perfect and eternal love of God, who has provided for our emancipation from the horrors of sin and death?  Indeed, whenever the Adversary insinuates doubt, prayer for our faith to be increased will surely be answered abundantly!

    HOPE
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalms 23:4
    Anyone with common sense knows that the promise of God to protect and save us does not necessarily mean our physical safety is guaranteed.  It is about our salvation, the safety of our souls. Some of us may be tortured unto death; this is nothing new. This is an awful thing to contemplate, indeed. How can we endure such a thing?  It is a sobering question to consider, but a necessary one.

    In 1 Peter 4: 12 and 13 we read,
    “Beloved, think it not strange the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as you are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy.”

    One can find comfort in contemplation of the experience of Stephen, as recounted in Acts 7:59-60:
    “And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice: Lord, lay not this sin to their charge.  And when he said this, he fell   asleep.”

    In 1 Corinthians 10:13 we are reassured,
    “There hath no temptation taken you but such that is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.”
    Such would be the presence and merciful intervention of the power of Jesus, for those who call upon him and for those who diligently follow the path of forgiveness. No matter how we feel that we have been injured in this world, let us remember that none of us are without sin, and that all of us are in need of God’s mercy. In Romans 3:23 we read,
    “For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”

    Jesus told us that our sins would be forgiven if we are willing to forgive others for wrongs done to us. In Matthew 6:14-15 we read,
    “If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly father will also forgive you. But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
    No matter what we might think we have lost in this life, be it position or financial strength or family or health or the esteem of men-- God will never forsake us.  Jesus promised his people, in Mathew 28:20,
    “…Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

    Therefore, the true Christian must pause and reflect carefully on how suicide might be willfully forsaking Jesus.  We must remember each and every promise of the Creator, who so lovingly has provided a covering for our sin, a gracious gift of compassion that humbles the human heart. When frightened, bewildered by the evils of this world, when sorrowful, or lonely, or discouraged, let us consider the words of our Master, Jesus Christ.  In John 16:33 Jesus lovingly assured us,
    “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace.  In this world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
    Author’s note: I sincerely apologize for the errors that were initially in this article. I have done my best to correct these errors, as well as to clarify the very real eternal consequences of suicide.

THE EXTREME DANGERS OF HYPNOTISM

 

INTRODUCTION (compiled by S N Strutt) 28/10/15.

 

Many people today are increasingly turning to hypnosis, in one form or another, in order to solve their problems, but ARE THEY REALLY AWARE OF THE DANGERS?

 

Before undergoing any treatment which specifically uses HYPNOTISM, I suggest that you visit the following excellent website by Dr. Jeremy Wheeler, a former top British Hypnotist. www.dangers-of-hypnosis.co.uk/hypnotherapy-expose.html

 

He has written an excellent book, which is simply called:-

 “DANGERS OF HYPNOSIS”

 

A cryptic scary quote from his book states:-

 

YOU CAN ACTUALLY BE HYPNOTIZED AGAINST YOUR WILL & THEN MADE TO DO ANYTHING!” which is totally contrary to what most hypnotists tell you that you can’t be made to do anything that you don’t want to do! (Editor:- This would tend to verify conditions such as the famous movie “THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE”  AND HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM THE MOVIE:-uses trigger words to control Marco's mind, giving him commands to assassinate the President-Elect so that Shaw can become president. It happens, though, that with the trauma of Jocelyne's death, Shaw is gaining resistance to his own mind control.”

 

DANGERS OF HYPNOSIS is an excellent book by Dr Jeremy Wheeler (A former famous and top-notch British hypnotist)

From a spiritual point of view:-

 

Here is an excerpt from a very interesting discussion given by Pastor D. D. Berg in an article called

“SPIRITUAL COMMUNICTIONS” back in September1975, where he specifically broaches the subject of HYPNOTISM and it’s dangers.

 

“WHAT ABOUT THE CASES OF SO CALLED WITCHCRAFT, WIZARDRY, BLACK MAGIC”, casting of so-called spells upon people, the influencing of people from a distance sometimes called telepathic hypnosis?

 

In that case, the Enemy acts as a relay station, and his spiritual power amplifies and transmits the message. Satan's child communicates with the Devil and if it's in accordance with the Devil's will, and not beyond the powers God has given him, then he can operate to influence other children of the Devil, one way or the other. Science, of course, would call this telepathic hypnosis. They have already proven the influence and results of personal hypnosis, face-to-face hypnosis in the presence of the hypnotist, and are now having to consider even further the possibilities of the power of suggestion, that if it can be done face-to-face, why can't it be done at a longer distance.

 

                 THE POWER OF THE LORD, OF COURSE, IS GREATER! "Greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world." In other words God is saying, "My power in you is much greater than the Devil's power in the world's children, his children--much greater!"--So if we have the power of the Lord, we have Christ, we have the Holy Spirit. We don't have to worry or fear Satan's power because we are protected by the power of the Holy Spirit, which is far greater than the power of the Enemy.

 

                 THE LORD'S PROTECTION IS JUST LIKE A FORCE FIELD AROUND US AND THE ENEMY CANNOT PENETRATE IT!  It's impossible for him to penetrate it unless the Lord allows him to do it as a chastening, as a reaping of something you have done that you haven't confessed or you're not sorry for. The Lord allows you to reap the results.

 

 SCIENCE IS REALLY STUDYING E.S.P., TELEPATHIC COMMUNICATION AND TELEPATHIC HYPNOSISin certain universities now because there are so many proved instances of E.S.P. People suddenly waking the moment a friend or loved one died and knowing that they're dead and so on. How would you know somebody a thousand miles away died unless you have some kind of perception that is beyond the power of your normal senses? They probably thought about you or maybe their heart went out to you or something, and you got the message. God allows you to get the message.

 

                 E.S.P. MEANS EXTRA SENSORY PERCEPTION. It could come to you in a dream. The only difference between getting a message in a dream and getting it while you're awake or conscious is that you're simply getting it in your sleep.

IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH?

(Testimony by Stephen Strutt, author of this book):-

Last year during 2013, my mother died at the age of 94, and of course many of my relatives were at her funeral & were understandably in tears and naturally moved by the occasion.

At the funeral service which was a cremation, I knew that somehow I had to talk about something positive about the passing of my mother, without dissolving in tears, as most of my relatives did, which is of course, completely human! I prayed that God would give me the grace for the occasion & help me not to break down in tears as I spoke to the congregation. When it came to my turn to talk about my mother before the congregation of my relatives, I mentioned that I was not sad, as my mother had suffered many ailments and pains for many years, and I was just happy that God had taken her to much happier place, that now she had been relieved of all of her earthly pains & sorrows.

Another amazing event which had encouraged me the night before my mother died, was the following strange occurrence or premonition.

I had received a phone call one morning from my eldest brother to inform us that my mother had died the night before. My brother told me that my mother had died at 11.55 PM. When I told my wife and daughters about the situation, my two daughters looked shocked, and went white! I asked them why they were so shocked. They related to me that the night before, at around mid-night, (they had just gone to bed about an hour before), that both of them had heard a woman calling their names, and that they could smell a distinct smell of a woman’s strong perfume. They felt at the time that it was their grand-mother, whom they had not seen, who had tried to communicate with them, but were not sure, and could not explain the occurrence between themselves until the next morning. When the next morning, I told them about their grand-mother having passed on during the night, they told me that when she died she had reached out to them and called their names, as she knew that they had always wanted to know her much better.

I am sure the above experience has happened in one form or the other to millions of people, when their loved ones passed away. Many have felt their relatives “reach out” to them as they died. This has been reported even when they themselves were in countries far away from their relative who had just died. There are millions of people worldwide who also claim to have left their bodies during an operation at the hospital, or during a serious illness.(End of Excerpt from "OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT")

More spiritual analysis concerning HYPNOTISM:-

THE DEVIL'S SYSTEM IS A PARALLEL OR SIMILAR TO THE LORD'S. The so-called witches who are really the Devil's children and really in tune with him are doing his work, and can of course communicate with him, receive from him, and project to him. They please him and he pleases them within the limitations that God has put upon them.

 

                 GOD ALLOWS THE DEVIL'S CHILDREN TO REAP THE CURSES, the benefits, and the spoils and whatnot that the Enemy can give because he's dealing with his own children. He's the Devil and he has that power to do so, but of course only within the power of God, within what God has allowed him to do, within the limitations that God permits, in order to work out God's plan.

 

                 NO MATTER WHAT SCIENTIFIC NAMES THEY CALL IT, IT'S STILL SPIRITUAL POWER in operation in the realm of the Spirit, and to us the spiritual is understandable. If they were able to scientifically analyse it they'd probably call it natural, and in a way these are natural forces, natural powers.--They're natural in that God has created them, but the Lord has made a distinction between the things of the spirit and the flesh. So you usually think of the flesh and the material things as natural, and the things in the realm of the Spirit as spiritual and supernatural.

 

                 SO YOU SEE, WE ARE DEALING IN THE REALM OF THE SPIRIT. Whether they know it or not, they are using the power of the spirit no matter what they call it. The Devil and his spirits are answering their "prayers," you might say, and doing the things that are suggested so that they're able to communicate.

 

                  IS HYPNOSIS ALWAYS THE POWER OF THE DEVIL? Couldn't they be using the power of the Lord?) If they are Christians and praying and asking God to influence, yes of course that's another thing. But in either case they are using spiritual power, especially when you talk about transmitting at a distance. Unless their own spirit goes there they would have to communicate by means of some other spiritual medium, a power or means of communication.

 

                 IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE LORD IN THEIR HEART IT HAS TO BE THE DEVIL.--No matter what good they are trying to do. Things are either controlled by the Lord or the Devil. It takes faith in either case, so it's all in the realm of the Spirit.

 

                 IT'S ALL VERY REAL AND SCIENCE IS BEGINNING TO RECOGNISE IT more and more all the time. Only they call it all by different names, and big terms, and big words like telepathic hypnosis, mental suggestion, mental images, hallucinations, and extra sensory perception, blah, blah, blah! But they can no longer deny that these things exist. They've been proven by actual experience and experimentation, beyond a shadow of a doubt they know they're real. In some ways scientists are getting more realistic all the time and really trying to find out and discovering that there really are such things.

 

                 BUT WHAT THEY DON'T PERHAPS REALISE IS THAT IT'S NOT JUST A SO-CALLED NATURAL REALM like just a natural realm of natural physical forces, but there are literally spiritual forces behind the scenes with which they're dealing, and that in so doing they're really playing with fire!

They're really taking chances because they're not necessarily protected by the Lord. If they're a child of the Devil they could get possessed or a lot of other things could possibly happen. But if you're a child of God none of these things could touch you. You don't have to worry! "God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind," "perfect love casts out fear."

 

                 IF YOU KEEP YOUR MIND STAYED ON THE LORD, YOU'LL HAVE PERFECT PEACE. You don't have to worry about the Enemy, or the Devil or his power or anything else because he can't touch us because we have and love the Lord. Therefore, the Lord cautions us that we're not to fear, constantly tells us not to fear but to have faith.

 

                 I WAS LOOKING AT THE MOON ONE NIGHT ON THE WAY HOME on the train and I was praising the Lord for how beautiful it was. It was His creation, and I was getting all these good vibes. I was sitting there cleansing my mind you might say after having seen a film about the demon possession of a young man and having dwelt on all that horror and what the Devil was doing. But I really am glad I saw it because it shows the world is awakening to these things, and recognising and acknowledging that they're true although some are explaining them away scientifically.

 

 A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE AWAKENING TO THE FACT THAT THE SPIRITUAL WORLD IS REAL, God's real and the Devil's real.
