“If you have the same beliefs when you’re 50 as you had when you were 20, you’ve wasted 30 years.”
I was awoken one day in late 2017 by the following statement in my head from an old Appalachian pastor’s voice:
“Ya know’d the Devil is God’s best fren, rite?” (my best imitation)
I thought, “WHAT? Lucifer is not God’s best friend!”
“Look it up. Job will show you...”
I thought, “Okay. I’ll check it out...”
I know enough about Job to understand that it was the first book ever written in the “cannon”. It was written about the time Abram left Ur; many generations before Moses wrote the Pentateuch. God only makes an appearance in chapter one and after chapter 37. The rest of it is all things you’ll still hear from other people today about why you’re going through a struggle. If anyone tries to teach you anything from any part of Job from 2-37, please don’t consider it Divinely inspired. Remember that it’s just things we all say to each other even today (in some way or another). Any teaching from 2-37 is “false”, except to show how wrong our understanding of God can be. After Lucifer loses the bet over Job, God makes Job whole again (like the insurance ad, He replaces everything with one model year newer - the approximate length of Job’s struggles). Apparently, God must’ve lost the earlier bet (Adam & Eve).
Games best friends play?
Elihu was clearly added later and isn’t in the original manuscripts. In fact, interestingly, the God Job refers to is actually Eloah, who became Allah; not El (YHWH), who is the God of Israel. This actually makes sense and explains a lot about Job. I had always wondered why Job’s children were considered simple property, like cattle and goats (chapter one, when they are all wiped out). That is not my understanding of children from a Biblical perspective . When it took on an Arabic/Islamic perspective, it made more sense. That got me wondering how early Lucifer had started twisting our Bible...
“The foundation of Christianity is not our obedient response to God; but God’s gracious response to our disobedience.”
I believe Jesus is THE Son of God and lived a sin-free life (not sure if that began after his Bar Mitzvah or after His training as a Rabbi). I can’t necessarily agree that He was fully God as that would require the death of God on the Cross (whether that was a millisecond or a million years is irrelevant). He was a perfect lamb that paid the price of sin - one time for all time. That would make Christianity a polytheistic religion (a chief god: YHWH, vice god: Yeshua, the Holy Spirit, thousands of “lesser gods”: angels, demons, etc). Not too dissimilar from many religions that we Christians consider “bad” (like Roman, Greek, Norse, etc.); but we accept the Trinity and discount our own “immortal beings with supernatural abilities” (angels/demons) as “something else”, when we consider them to be gods in other religions.
“Yeah, me and God? We be mates!”
Christianity IS NOT a set of rules to be followed or mandates to be fulfilled (a religion). It’s a relationship with the CEO of the Universe. It’s a friendship with God.
Jesus explains it best:
37 Jesus answered:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. 38 This is the first and most important commandment. 39 The second most important commandment is like this one. And it is, “Love others as much as you love yourself.” 40 All the Law of Moses and the Books of the Prophets are based on these two commandments.
Matthew 22:37-40 (CEV)
According to the Freemasons (Illuminati), we have it backwards. Lucifer is the good guy and Adonay (Jesus) is the bad one...
"That which we must say to a crowd is—We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition. To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees—The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian Doctrine. If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay (Jesus) whose deeds prove his cruelty, perdify and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests, calumniate him? Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay is also god. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two gods: darkness being necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive. Thus, the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil."
- Albert Pike, "Instructions to the 23 Supreme Councils of the World" (July 14, 1889), as recorded by Abel Clarin de La Rive, La Femme et l'Enfant dans la Franc-maçonnerie Universelle (1894): 588.
However, it’s my experience that Luciferians are very religious. The only religion close to the religiosity of the Luciferians is Islam. Jesus came to show us that religion is the problem and caused the misunderstanding to begin with.
We know that Lucifer is the “President” of this world. He’s another immortal, supernatural being with superhuman powers. According to the Bible, he’s in charge of things down here:
“8 Finally, the devil took Jesus up on a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms on earth and their power. 9 The devil said to him, “I will give all this to you, if you will bow down and worship me.”
(Matthew 4 - CEV)
and also see Luke 4: 5-7
Since I’m friends with the CEO of the Universe, I’m not subject to the “President of this world”. I do need to acknowledge his place and position, like I do a politician, or a police officer, or any type of supervisor; but I don’t need to subjugate myself to their authority if it’s not in line with the Bible.
There aren’t aliens! They are simply angels or demons (immortal, supernatural beings) who simply get seen from time to time. Oh, they aren’t on opposite sides. They’re like politicians. Both sides want the best for the Universe (their “country”), not necessarily the elimination of the other side. Jesus came to straighten out things because we got them all mixed up. He’s the only one who had gotten it right, then got killed for saying how great it would be if we all got along for a change and treated each other with respect and honesty.
These are simple facts.
“The message of Christianity isn’t ‘Remember God’; but ‘God remembers you’!”
My suggestion is that we’ve misunderstood God since almost the beginning. He welcomed Enoch into Heaven without accepting Jesus, without the Law, without being perfect. If God can make an exception for him, He has made exceptions for all of us from before time began. He knew all of history before He created the Universe. If He didn’t, then He isn’t God. By definition, He is omniscient and omnipresent. He is everywhere simultaneously and in all points of time. The end of time is RIGHT NOW, the creation of the Universe is RIGHT NOW. He must be PRESENT in Heaven and in Hell. If He isn’t, then He isn’t omnipresent and ceases to exist. He knew everyone who would be in Heaven before He created the Universe. He had already completed the mansions in Heaven before He created the Sun (or Son).
In one aspect, that means all of time and any action is irrelevant. In another aspect, that means everything matters immensely because God pre-planned it. I’m not here to work out the conundrum. I’m here to live life. I choose to live a good life and be the best that I can be because I am thankful for the sacrifices made to allow me to be in this time and place - even though it was all known in advance. It doesn’t have to make sense right now. He promised it would all make sense at some point.
“Judas was likely the only disciple prior to the crucifiction to believe Jesus was the Son of God.”
I believe that Judas Iscariot has gotten a bad rap. He was likely simply trying to force Jesus to reveal Himself as the Son of God, not selling Him out for a fairly insignificant amount of money (whether it’s 1/2 year’s wages, or 5 weeks wages, or the price of a slave at the time, or whatever unit you want to use). Judas was likely the only disciple, prior to the crucifiction, to believe Jesus was the Son of God.
Even great “church fathers”, like Peter, denied knowing Him at the crucifiction. After the resurrection, they never, ever denied knowing Him again - for any reason. If they hadn’t seen Him resurrected and His glorified body, that doesn’t make sense. They didn’t go from being guys who were part of “the following” to being Super-believers willing to die for Him if they didn’t experience something amazing and real.
Jesus was right. His blood was shed for all of our sins - one time for all time. Most of the population of the Earth has never and will never hear His name (it’s not “Jesus”)- including most Americans (especially evangelicals). If you must accept salvation by calling on His name, then almost no one ever has or could. I’m not perfect, you’re not perfect, the Pope isn’t perfect (any of them), Billy Graham wasn’t perfect. Thanks to the Perfect Lamb sacrificed in our place, we’re all forgiven.
Its not right. It’s not fair. It’s not supposed to be. It’s our job to pass that forgiveness on to others. Especially those who don’t deserve it.
No complex theological discussions, just simplicity:
Forgive everyone for everything!
Who am I?
I was “raised in the church”. Mainly in Oklahoma by parents from central Kentucky, so that meant twice on Sunday and on Wednesday evenings. As it happened, I also mainly went to private Christian schools. I knew more about theological issues than most of my youth pastors as we moved from place to place every time my parents got a promotion or started some new venture. I was “saved” (walked the aisle) when I was 8 - because I was scared of Hell and eternal damnation. I became a Christian on April 28, 1996, when I was 25, after I severely hurt someone (emotionally) that I deeply cared for and violated their trust, and they decided to forgive me and help me anyway. I realized that’s what I had been doing to God for all these years and He had forgiven me, too.
All the years in-between, I had “rededicated” my life many, many times without ever understanding what I had actually done. I just realized that I wasn’t ever “good enough”. I’ve come to understand that NO ONE can ever be “good enough”. No one. Period.
