Ah, you’re comparing God with a human. You’re saying “well, I forgive people if they commit a crime! I don’t wreak revenge on them! That’s because I’m good and God’s bad.”

But you’re a human. You’re flawed yourself, so you may cut your kids a lot of slack. (“I know I told him not to do that…but hey, I was worse when I was his age!”) Or you’re aware your rules may not be fair (“I said I’d ground her if she was out after 10…but maybe I was being a bit too strict…maybe I’ll let her off…or check what other parents are doing…”)

Whereas God isnt flawed. He doesnt have to doubt His judgements (and He spells everything out VERY clearly upfront. Eve knew PRECISELY what would happen if she ate the fruit.) So people going against Him shows theyre pitting themselves against God. And while God showed huge mercy in the OT (have you READ the story of the Israelites in wilderness, endlessly disobeying, squabbling, making idols…) He wasnt going to be mocked. Because God isnt like your soppy old Dad (where kids smirk “oh, he SAYS all this stuff but I can wind him round my little finger!”) but is the Almighty. And would we WANT a soppy old God who said one thing but…it never happened? You wouldnt know where you were. There wouldnt BE any Law (“I know it SAYS not to steal but God’ll shrug and look the other way if I smile at Him”)

God is there to be treated with reverence and love. We HAVE to follow His word. It’s not a matter for debate. You deciding that “I don’t approve of God so I’m ignoring His EVERY WORD” isnt like deciding youre not voting for a politician or shopping in a certain business. God wil prevail. Makes more sense to work with Him than try to fight, when it’s all set in stone…

Jesus is real and conquered death, unlike those that would like to believe in concocted characters from Krypton who could not even overcome Kryptonite. I am sad for those who believe in fairy tales and superheroes who have no basis in historical fact because you will be judged by the king of kings, who is not amused.

In Dragon Ball Z- Dragon Ball Super the primary antagonist is Frieza. He’s the only reoccurring primary antagonist in the canon. He’s a symbolic amalgamation of dragon celestial and dragon demon races. He represents the real life rulership of the celestial dragon race over monkey demons. Dragon Ball Z’s story of Frieza’s empire ruling over aliens is just symbolic for the dragon celestials ruling over all races and species of demons. The saiyans were just one of many races under Frieza’s empire - in real life monkey demons are just one of many demon species who are under the authority of Dragon celestials.

The saiyan race is a warrior race trained to kill and destroy taking orders from a race of dragons who have an empire in space. This is based off the reality of celestial dragons princes who give orders to demons to continue their domination over mankind existing on earth in the 3rd dimension.

Our fascination with Dragon Ball is literally based on the will of the spirits of the monkey demons whom the fictional saiyan race is a cartoonish exaggeration. So the real life version of Frieza and saiyans are literally on the same side. There’s no fighting between monkey and dragon; there’s no super saiyan; no god forms; no ui; no blowing up planets or being galaxy - multi universal in power tier; theres no shaking the universe through fighting. All of that is fantasy to keep you entertained on monkey demons and their celestial dragon masters who dominate them.

Rene Donaldson , #fundie quora.com

Saiyans are just cartoon versions of monkey demons. Monkey demons are a monkey species derivative of nephilim, which were produced by intermixing monkey, angel, and human dna. The saiyan race is symbolic for the monkey demon race that thrived during the Pre Flood era of human history. It was eradicated in a global world war and the remnants were killed off through a global food. Afterwards throughout history human militaries have eradicated any monkey demons that were born within human and / or nephilim societies.

The spirits of monkey demons exist in the 4th dimension either on earth or in hell. The spirits of the monkey demons whose physical bodies were killed during the PreFlood era were crushed in battle against God’s race of celestial dragons. These dragon celestials forced 9/10ths of the monkey demon race to live in hell where they reside as one of many species of demon tormentors of human souls. 1/10th of the monkey demon spirits reside on earth - these are the ones that are behind Dragon Ball, King Kong, Monkey King, and monkey demon anime derivatives.

In Dragon Ball the ultimate gods of the show are the celestial dragons. They’re symbolic for the celestial dragon race who are the fore fathers of the nephilim race which sired the monkey demon race. Just look at the title of the show - Dragon Ball not Monkey Ball even though monkey demons are the main characters of the show. The title of the show signifies the celestial dragon princes that rule over the monkey demon race, whom the monkey demon race is completely dominated.

Modern Atheists are almost exclusively Christians in denial. Very few have achieved any sort of intellectual rejection of Christianity in its core values (ala Nietzsche). And because they have wholeheartedly swallowed the ethical presuppositions of Christianity, they get really mad when the moral picture of God—in the old testament for instance—or the state of the world around them conflicts with the atheists’ Lord and savior: Jesus Christ. Take your average Atheist, for example, waxing pathetic about how the ever present pointless suffering and evil in the world shows that there is no God.
[snip]
And that’s why the atheists get so mad: because they love Jesus Christ with all their hearts, their one and only true Lord, whose absence has destroyed all true meaning and longstanding joy from the atheist’s life.

Yes, let's look at this in a simple way, we have very intelligent people in this world ,( Doctors, Engineers,, Technicians,, Mathematicians,, Chemists,,physicist,,Biologist,,Dentists,,etc. etc. BUT there is Not one man on Earth Today that Has the Brains or can even BEGIN to COMPREHEND How POWERFUL THE LORD IS we cannot even in our WILDEST Imagination ( drugs,, Alcohol, Acid Mushrooms, Lsd, Pcp, weed, Cocaine, Angel dust ,etc. None of those Heights, (good trips or bad trips ) we still don't have the Ability to Understand HOW MUCH GOD LOVES US,,so HE stept Down to Our Level ,and Became Flesh and Blood to Teach us How to Live with Love for Each other, if you cannot love your Enemies and Forgive them unconditionally then you Also don't LOVE The LORD can you imagine forgiving someone Unconditionally ??

What is the strongest proof that God does exist?

The strongest proof that God does exist, I mean the true God who dwells in heaven and owns the earth is that no matter how knowledgeable we think we are, we still ‘die' at the end and no one can stop that, for the fact that we can stop death is a big proof that God does exist.

George Clark #fundie quora.com

Science makes many presumptions to arrive at an age of 13.8 billion years for the universe. Such as, science assumes the speed of light is 186K miles a sec AND this has always has been a constant. But Genesis infers that initially light was infinite in speed and illuminated the universe without stars. God lowered the original speed of light so we could see stars at night that He made.

Secondly, science ignores all anomalies that contradict adverse issues. Such as, if the Earth were as old as you say like 4.6 billion years , then the oceans would be much more salty than they are. The inverse of the current rate of change in salinity places the age of the oceans at around 10,000 years.

The same is true for nickel powder from meteorites being deposited only on the outer edges of the Earth surface. If the Earth were billions of years old, you would find evidence of nickel at a much greater depth. But you don't.

I believe science that depends on truth, facts, and all data not just excluding evidence that conflicts with non-science suppositions.

Wanda Dailey #fundie quora.com

There's no need to prove God the Creator to anyone - - let God do it for you! That is, He has already demonstrated who He is in extraordinary ways to all of mankind, but because of foolish pride issues, arrogance & trusting one's educational level, what their idol may have said, or trusting in their own analytical conclusions, or etc., etc., etc., atheist and a majority who believe in God's existence, but are not reconciled to our Father-God, have cut themselves off from God. We need to remember, our Father-God didn't send Jesus to reconcile every person, even though salvation is available to everyone, but Jesus came to reconcile those who earnestly seek to know who He is & is not & have a desire to “get right with God.” If there's someone you'd like to help in their discovery, try to keep in mind they may be superficial, in that, while they have questions it's not necessarily because they actually have a personal interest in learning, but have a ulterior motive.

Wanda Dailey #fundie quora.com

So with this said, I suggest recommending the following: (1) Tell the person(s) that if they have great difficulty believing there is but one Creator-God, to ASK HIM to make it possible for them to know He is God & to know He WILL answer them in His own unique way & timing! To ask Him directly & not through a spiritual leader! (2) Mention that Lee Strobel, an award winning Investigative Journalist & a strong-minded atheist, set-out to prove once in for all, that Jesus was a fraud & was not who he claimed to be & did none of the things He claimed to have accomplished! And, in fact, He never existed! Strobel hated Christianity even though he didn't have a clue of what he was talking about, but like many, had confused Christianity with mankind's religions, believing they were one in the same. And, as Strobel may have earlier mentioned, how do we know George Washington ever existed? How do we know our history books aren't a hoax? We know Washington existed, due to the number of folks who personally knew him, saw him or heard him deliver a speech & recorded their encounters in diaries, in letters, on documents, etc., etc., etc. Undeniable, verified documents is how Lee Strobel ended-up KNOWING who Jesus is & is not, was reconciled to God through Jesus & became an actual Christian and ended his quest by writing the only book in history, “The Case For Christ,” to prove Jesus is as the Holy Bible says! And, with this said, I mention I recommend them to read the book.

Dean Cooper #fundie quora.com

Man could not have authored the Bible. We know that the Bible is authored by God because it foretells the future with 100% accuracy every time. No other book in the world has 100% fulfilled prophecy. This shows that it comes from the mind of God. Man would not write a book about how his God whom he loves and worships gets crucified. Man would teach that we get to God by our good works. The Bible is accurate from Science, Archaeology, Prophecy, Unity and Morality.

Dean Cooper #fundie quora.com

For me, ONE of the main reasons i believe in God is the sheer impossibility of the alternative.

We are living on a 6,371 km diameter rock, hurtling through space at a speed of 66,000 mph, a million miles away from a 27 million degrees Fahrenheit inferno and no-one in charge.

The Bible is not a book but a collection of 66 books, written over a span of 1600 years across 3 continents, by over 40 writers inspired by God in 3 languages yet it has ONE primary theme ( The Glory of God and salvation of mankind ) and zero errors or contradictions. It is scientifically, prophetically, archaeologically, historically and linguistically accurate.

Ignore the word "trinity". its not important.

Guys - I'ma be straight up - demons aren't entertaining. They're actually real. Which I know cause one tried to strangle me. I saw it. And as I was being strangled I felt chest pain and was literally about to die. Then I said his name - JESUS. Its like a nuclear bomb. Works every time. So if you guys think you gotta demon in your house. Just tell his name - Yesnua it you're Jewish, Jesus for everyone else. It basically means God our salvation, and he will save you, it you really mean it when you say it. That's all blokes. See ya!

“’For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church” (Eph. 5:31-32).

Heyo! The whole time Paul was talking about husbands and wives and marriage and sex in Ephesians 5, it says here he was actually talking about Jesus and us! Marriage and sex are metaphors for the relationship we have with Jesus.

What is a metaphor? It is a sign post. It points to the real thing. It’s something tangible we can look at in order to understand something else. It’s a symbol we can learn from in order to understand and experience the real thing.

The real thing is the one-flesh relationship Jesus desires to have with each of us. It’s the relationship he has with those who call themselves Christians. It’s a relationship of intimate love and acceptance and support and trust, where Jesus is the groom and we are the bride. Earthly marriage and sex are symbols that can help point us toward the real thing.

This is why there is no sex in heaven. You don’t need sign posts when you’ve arrived at the destination!

James Watson #fundie quora.com

The bible says everyone knows there is a God <Rom.1:18–20>, (i.e. from the creation they know there is a Creator, also Ps.19:1–6). Rom.2:14–15 teaches that everyone has the law written in their hearts, so they know right and wrong. So all these nations other than Israel knew there was a God and they were sinners. If they followed the light they had, they would know how to please God and seek the knowledge of the Messiah through Israel, but they didn’t. Some came to know and please God from other countries, e.g. Ruth from Moab, Ninevah repented at Jonah’s preaching. And God is not limited, so He could reach out to individuals like He did to Abraham in the Ur of the Chaldees. But I would argue that God is just and doesn’t punish anyone who is not guilty, unless they are caught up in the punishment of a wicked nation, like Jerusalem.

Emmanuel Free Church #fundie efcspringlake.org

The second death is the separation of the whole person from the presence and blessings of God forever. The second death involves not just the location separate from God, but, the condition experienced for all eternity apart from God: never-ending fire and brimstone, weeping and gnashing of teeth, suffering and torment. The location and the agonizing condition experienced in that location is called the second death.

The Bible does not teach annihilation – the idea that God obliterates unsaved people entirely from existence. Nor does the Bible teach soul sleep, an unconscious existence for eternity. The Bible says that people who are not saved will be resurrected (Rev. 20:12; John 5:28-29), judged, and heaved into the Lake of Fire – fully conscious, forever under the painful torments of this awful place.

The God of Moses doesn’t need to complete with other religions because he’s the only living God. All the other gods are fakes, total inventions, because they have never done anything in history nor do they respond to prayer.

So a human being has basically one of two options: Either believe in the living God, or believe in nothing. Believing in some ancient pagan god is about as useless as believing in the tooth fairy. A pagan god is not going to do anything for you.

So why should you believe in the living God? Because he is the only one that can give you eternal life. That is his promise. If you follow the plan taught by Jesus, you are guaranteed eternal life. How do I know that? Because he said so.

John 6: “Jesus declared, “… whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

How can someone know if Jesus is real? That’s pretty easy because Jesus claimed to be God and raised himself up from the dead to prove it. No other person in history has been able to do that. Not only that, Jesus raised a man, Lazarus, after he was dead for 4 days. No one can do that either. He did that only to prove to humanity he has the power to raise people from the dead.

If you are skeptical, consider this: Thousands of people saw Jesus die on the cross. And thousands of people saw him alive after he was resurrected from the dead. Hundreds of early Christians were tortured to death for following their faith and proclaiming Jesus as their Lord. Do you really think they would do that just for a hoax?

Oh yes, that thing about God killing people. Actually, he’s not keen on killing them, in fact, he wants everyone to have eternal life. God has bent over backwards to give people eternal life, but if they persist in worshiping the Golden Calf and burning up their children alive as sacrifices to Baal, then God has no other choice than to destroy those people. God only tolerates evil for a limited time, so when people have been warned repeatedly, over hundreds of years, and yet they continue to ignore the warnings, God has no other option left but to destroy them. But it pains him just the same.

Because the Greek and Egyptian religions were simply myths and legends and nothing else, whereas Judaeo-Christianity is a true revelation from the really existing God, acting in human history.

God revealed his existence undoubtingling when Christ was born. Also even when adam and eve were born. The existence of the Bible proves the existence of God because the new testiment was compiled by disciples who have seen Christ in the flesh. watched him die for their sins and he raised from the dead. The question is now do you believe in miracles. No? How about curses then like the conjuring. Annabelle, the curse of la llarona, Amityville horror, and all I've listed off is Hollywood horrors that are all based on true stories. What happened in those true stories. I don't care for now. Not going to take up exercism as a career to see if God really exist but I recommend all athiest to so they can finally get there “evidence”. Untill then I don't want to hear from an atheist until they take on my challenge for a year. Athirst convinently believe that God doesn't exist and yet to try my test to be proven wrong.

In the dark days of World War II, Hitler’s Third Reich, that was supposed to reign for 1000 years, was determined to rid the world of any remnant of those who were of Jewish ancestry. The death camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Dachau and many others belched smoke and fire day and night for many months as the bodies of many of the 6 million Jews that died at the hands of German tormentors, were burned to ashes. This great crime upon humanity was designated as the “Final Solution” for ridding the world of Jews whom Hitler and his Aryan race considered as little more than vermin.

[snip]

I’m here to tell you that God has designed His own “Final Solution” for all those who live in rebellion and sin. That will not just include Satan and his fallen angels but will also include every man, woman and child over the age of accountability that chooses not to live in obedience and to not accept the great salvation that is offered through the death of Jesus upon the Cross of Calvary.

[snip]

God’s final solution is far more horrible that the gas chambers and ovens of Hitler’s death camps. God’s final solution, borne of His wrath against the sin and evil that has broken the laws of Heaven, is eternal, without end.

God's Final Solution to Evil, Part 07

Evil is a reality in our world. Violence and brutality can be seen everywhere. The question is often asked, Why does a good God allow evil, and what is He doing about it? In the ninth chapter of Daniel, God outlines His solution to put an end to evil. The day will come when righteousness will triumph.

Modern abortion is nothing more or less than ancient Molech worship revived. It is the promise of liberation from commitment and financial freedom. Read through the Historical Books of the Bible to see how the practice played out in the natural. Then read the Old Testament prophetic books to see what those men of God had to say about the practices of child sacrifice. “A woman’s right to choose” is fraudulent on its face. It is not your choice to terminate a healthy living soul that grows within you. Nor is it a man’s right to bully a woman into doing so. Please keep in mind that these medical emergencies that the pro-abortion crowd likes to bandy about are so rare as to be statistically non-existent.

Barbara Hendrix #fundie books.google.com

Some are gone so far into the darkness of sin that their conscience has been seared to the extent that they actually believe that wrong is right and right is wrong. If a man has nor lost his natural ability to reason, he instinctively knows that anal sex is wrong, but if he has indulged in that sexual perversion and has developed a desire to express himself sexually in an uncivilized manner, and becomes addicted to that behavior, he then experiences, unbeknownst to himself, the loss of his innate ability to reason, which is the punishment for his detestable sin.

Consequently, what once was wrong from his perspective, then becomes right because it is what he desires to do, and has grown accustomed to doing, so he justifies and redefines his sin as an alternative lifestyle, and does everything in his power to cause its
proliferation, and its general acceptance by societies at large. Rather than to repent of his gross sin, the defiant, disobedient homosexual attempts to change the worldview of his sin. So confident he is in his new position of rebellion against the Word of God, which he has to invalidate as irrelevant or call archaic, or some such notion in order to continue to believe the lie about the nature of his homosexuality.

He does not want to call anal and oral sex sin because sin is wrong and requires repentance, consequently, anal and oral sex, according
to his way of thinking, is no longer sin, therefore there is no need for repentance.

Thus we have the definition of a reprobate mind, a sinner who would rather make void the Holy Bible in order to accommodate the sin of
homosexuality, instead of simply repenting for what he or she innately know is wrong. 'l •heir redefinition of sin prevails, at least in their twisted mind it does, until they step over into the land of judgment where I dwell, then all pretenses and lies will come to naught in the light of my holy presence.

Homosexuals perpetrate the ultimate perversion; the consequence of their refusal to accept the truth that I am their God, their Father, and their Creator and as such my will is supreme. Therefore they will reap the harvest of the seeds of destruction that they have sown so callously and haphazardly; the abuse and misuse of their own bodies. Their rational minds are gone, having lost the ability to reason, thus they are not even remotely aware of their true condition, which is the price of sin; spiritual death that leads to eternal damnation, an exchange of fathers; from the Father of light, who I am, to the father of darkness, otherwise known as Satan, the illegitimate father of those who have fallen into the deep abyss of sin.

Barbara Hendrix #fundie books.google.com

When humanity ignores the basics of principles of human biology it is to their peril. Anal intercourse is unnatural because the pathology is not designed for it, nor has it any biological purpose, and therefore it brings about physical, mental, and emotional damage. But also heterosexual intercourse with many and frequent partners spreads diseases and causes emotional damage because I did not design the human body and psyche for it.

HIV/Aids transmission is far more likely by anal intercourse. It is because the anus is not biologically designed for intercourse. I designed the female vagina with thick mucus to protect the vaginal wall, and an acid environment which kills a lot of sperm and the seminal liquid. The wall of the anus, lacking these, is very easily torn in intercourse. Moreover the presence of infected feces in the anal tract adds to the likelihood of the transmission of the HIV/Aids virus.

When humanity deviates from normal sexual behavior, breaking the patterns that I created, specifically as it relates to the proper order of sexual intercourse, perilous consequences are the natural outcome. Disorder, whether spiritual or natural, consequently leads to internal and external chaos, not to mention sickness and diseases. I was not being a whimsical God, when I gave mankind the laws of social interaction in the book Of Leviticus, but instead I was framing humanity within the construct of my protection via obedience to my Holy Word.

Homosexuality is a direct assault upon my creation. It is anti-God, and thus anti-family, and anti-life. No one is born a homosexual. The gay community sincerely to believe the lie that they were born that way, a belief that gives them an expedient justification for their deviant conduct. Godliness and restraint requires genuine effort, whereas, disobedience to my Word is taking the easy road, which leads to eternal damnation. All one need to do is kneel to every craving and inclination, even if their immorality injures themselves as well as others.


Barbara Hendrix #fundie books.google.com

Abortion is so abhorrent to me that I am here to address the issue directly, because it and homosexuality are the two significant catalysts that are ushering the world towards the very brink of destruction and total annihilation.

Homosexuals; gay men and lesbian women, bisexuals, and everything sexually perverted in between those three extremes, have boldly I laugh when I watch backward churches ordain homosexuals as ministers of God. I will never call a homosexual to minister over my
people. It would be synonymous to ordaining the condemned fallen Archangel Satan as a minister of God. I feel that I must warn all the
ordained" homosexual ministers" and those who ordained them, that they are unequivocally at war with me, the God of all creation, the God who knows the thoughts and intents of the hearts of all men, that I administer perfect judgment accordingly.

The goal of homosexuals is to infiltrate every aspect of social Structures world-wide, but the reality is that what they are doing in
their perverseness is ushering the world swiftly into the arms of utter destruction.

Perhaps they think that I have fallen asleep, or that just because I destroyed cities and nations because of the sin of homosexuality in the past does not necessarily mean that that will be the result today. Failing to understand that I change not, and failing to understand that they are shoveling destruction upon their heads, they blindly rush headlong into disaster.

Biblical history testifies against homosexuality. But apparently, my written Word has been rejected, and in its stead, lies have taken firm root. I have destroyed cities and nations because of homosexualiry, and I change not. Yet again, homosexuality has become a breathing living cancer pervading societies all over the world; a cruel deception Satan has devised and spoon-fed to sin drenched populations all over the world from generation to generation.

The new twist now, however, is the attempt by homosexuals to cloak their sexual perversions with holy matrimony. I created marriage for
one man and one woman beginning with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Homosexuality is an affront to my holiness, and it is a bold
attempt created by Satan to usher the world into divine destruction, by using the dark minds of sinful men and women to foster the perception of an acceptable, though false, normalcy, as it relates to homosexuality, upon societies that have fallen asleep in sin.

There is nothing normal about homosexuality. It is a chosen, abnormal, sinful lifestyle centered around sexual deviance; bestiality, which is sexual activity between human beings and animals, anal sex, and oral sex, all of which leads directly to what is known as ST D, HIV/Aids, and HPV; a few of the negative consequences related to sexual perversion, which is the immoral catalyst that has formed the foundation of death to millions of people worldwide already. How many more people must die because of a sexually perverse minority, who boldly attempts to cloak their unrighteousness in righteousness?

Christianity is not just a faith. It is a faith based on fact. Unfortunately most who believe in Christ do not know much of the fact. Neither do they conform to the tenets of Christ’s teaching.The Bible teaches: Study the scriptures and you will find me. This is very true.

As far as atheists are concerned. There are those who enjoy debate and will debate a knowledgeable discussion and on the other hand those who will react in anger and aggression. Unfortunate, by far the greater are the latter. The only atheists I know who accepted Christ are those who set out to disprove Christianity or entered into discourse with someone who truly knows the Bible.

There are only two religions in the world, the one or the other, the wrong or the right. They are quite easy to tell apart. The one is based on man's works; the other is not of man's works. The one says to rely on yourself, find yourself, heal yourself, clean yourself. The other says your lost, incurable, filthy. The one says you've got time, it will all work out in the end; the other says seek help today, now. The one is a struggle, a constant effort; the other is a gift bringing peace, the product of grace and mercy. The one will make a few allowances, nobody is perfect; the other demands the sinless perfection that you can never provide yourself and—provides it for you.

The one or the other, the wrong or the right one, how to chose? The easy answer to that question is look in a mirror.

Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?

It is your decision, your choice. Are you righteous, holy, clean, pure? Contemplate just your thoughts over the last week. If your able to make yourself pure choose the one, if you are not so clean and pure and unable to get that way, choose the other.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

By grace are ye saved through faith, it is the gift of God, not of works, is a singular unique religion separate out of all the religions of the world. This where the contention arises. On the one hand, all those religions can come together without condemning each other, for they are all the same religion—works. On the other hand, you have a religion that condemns all the rest by grace through faith, a free gift without the efforts of man.

It is important to know that Atheist hide behind Ad hoc hypothesis. Every thing they know is an adjustment of the equation to keep their failures current with the mind set of the public. This is also called the Axis of Evil. The bible is not really a scientific book, but it explains scientific beliefs ever so slightly. Which drives scientists mad. Mad enough for them to do Ad hoc. One cannot explain matter without intelligent design. You cannot make the leap into evolution without it. Which is why the missing link cannot be found. That takes a creator to do so. Bread a dog with a cat it cant be done. But some how it is done from ape to man. If its so easy as scientists claim then it should have been done over and over again. Try it and it is said you end up having AIDS. Laughable i know. I don't even know if that theory is true or not, but it had a good run….. its really not about faith but the bible really does explain our existence quite well. And science is only there to distort it. In order to understand i would suggest that people explore our quantum reality rather then mediocre science.

Goel sat behind Jonathan as they continued their flight toward the Foundation. The angel watched the clouds speed by the window deep in thoughtful meditation. He felt the distress emanating from Jonathan, and he wished to comfort and assure his friend that his parents were in the hands of the Lord. However he felt it would be best if Jonathan dealt with this himself. The divine protector loved Jonathan dearly. But he knew that it was crucial that the young Rabin-Aziz find solace in the Lord for himself. So, Goel left Jonathan in silence.

For some reason, Goel's mind drifted to an event which had occurred many centuries ago:

Go'El had been summoned to the Throne of God for an audience with The Divine Presence. On Earth, the chosen children of Israel were in oppressive bondage from Egypt and Pharaoh Rameses II. God had sent his prophet, Moses, to the royal courts to demand the release of His people. But, in order for the Israelites to see that it would be His divine will that would free them from slavery, He caused Pharaoh's heart to be hardened. The ruler stubbornly refused Moses' demands. The Lord had told Moses that He would send ten plagues upon Egypt to persuade Pharaoh to release the ill-treated Israelites from slavery. The plagues were designed to contrast the power of Yahweh with the impotence of Egypt's various "gods," who were actually demonic presences that had infiltrated the nation with paganism and false worship. The plagues were the judgments on specific gods associated with the Nile, fertility, and natural phenomena. And all of the gods of Egypt were to be judged through the tenth and final plague. God Himself had declared that the culminating plague would break Pharaoh's resolve and bring the gods of Egypt into subjection.

Go'El knelt before the awesomely majestic regality of God as He said to him, "According to My will, I have sent all manner of plagues and pestilences against Egypt and her pharaoh! Water has been turned to blood! Frogs, lice, and flies have tormented the land and all within! I have sent pestilence to exterminate Egypt's livestock and cursed the people with boils! I have sent thunder, lightning, and fiery hail to rain down upon the land! Locusts have devastated the crops and green grasses of Egypt! I have sent an oppressive living darkness over Egypt, and yet Pharaoh will not relent! This is because I have willed it to be so!

"Now, finally, Pharaoh has declared that the firstborn of Israel is to die in retaliation against Me! From out of his own mouth, he has pronounced the final judgment upon himself and Egypt! I will slay the firstborn of Egypt! I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of men and beasts, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt! I am the LORD!!"

At that statement, thunder roared and lightning flashed above the throne, and Go'El felt the divine anger and righteous indignation of God flood through his being as he placed his head to the floor of the throne.

Humbly, Go'El said, "What is Thy will, my Master!"

The Lord lowered His voice and said, "As master of the Powers, you would send angels of death to do this, however. I require you to be My hand to perform this task "

Go'El kept his eyes lowered as the Lord continued.

"I have commanded Moses to inform all the Israelites to mark lamb's blood on the doorposts on every door so that My hand will pass over them. Those who do so will suffer the destroyer to come into their homes and smite them. Thus, Pharaoh will relent, and My will be accomplished! Go now and exact My vengeance!"

Go'El rose to his feet and spread his black wings.

"It will be as You command, Great Jehovah!"

Taking flight Go'El disappeared from the throne room in an implosion of light. Go'El reappeared above Egypt through a dimensional rift as a luminous, nebulous form that appeared over the moon eerily. The whole of the Mal'akhim Habbalah was dispatched to surround Egypt in an impenetrable wall of divine power to keep any evil entity from entering and to ensure no one escaped the wrath of the Lord. Once the angels of death and destruction were in place, Go'El alone was left to be the divine instrument through which God would exact His wrathful vengeance upon Egypt and her pharaoh. With slow and eerie deliberation, Go'El branched out over the land as a shimmering wisp of ethereal energy. And, at a height just above the trees, the Avenger of Holy Retribution exploded forth swiftly entering the homes of those who were without the mark of lamb.

With deadly earnestness, Go'El entered the Egyptians' homes and horribly wrenched the life out of every firstborn human and animal he encountered. The wails which cut through the darkness were the most gut wrenchingly pitiful moans that had never been heard in all the whole of the world. Firstborn men, women, and children were not spared as Go'El, the Hand of Death, exacted the Lord's vengeance upon the land. Not even the youngest of children escaped His wrath as he tore then" spirit from their bodies.

When he had done as the Lord commanded to the citizens of Egypt, Go'El turned his attention to the house of Rameses II. Gathering his angelic form at the entrance to Pharaoh's home, Go'El withdrew his sword and entered invisibly and began to slay number upon number of the firstborn of Pharaoh's household, from the firstborn of the slave girl at her hand mill to all the firstborn of the cattle as well. Death pervaded all over Pharaoh's house as the Avenger did his horrendous yet holy duty. His sword left not a mark on the bodies which Go'El struck but to the spirit. The blade was like the venom of a scorpion burning the soul like the flames of perdition before death overtook his victim. When he had done this, Go'El turned his attention to the throne.

Pharaoh was in his bedchambers, fearfully listening to the screams of agony that permeated through the whole of Egypt, wondering what sort of calamity could make the most hardened of the generals of Egypt's armies scream like frightened children. Suddenly, Pharaoh felt fear grip his heart like the icy cold of death, and his very body trembled with abject fear and irrational horror. His eyes went wide with dread as a shadow appeared before the entrance of his room making him wonder what could cause the most powerful ruler in the world cringe and tremble in a dismalness which shamed even him. Grabbing his sheets and pulling them up at an attempt to cover his face and hide his shame from whatever was behind the creeping darkness which filled his land with moans of death, Rameses saw what was causing all the trepidation that seized his people in its embrace.
Slowly appearing from out of nothing, Go'El showed his angelic form. Pharaoh whimpered like a small child as he took in the frighteningly beautiful form of the seraphim who was the personification of divine justice and retributive vengeance. Turning his flame-filled eyes onto Pharaoh, Go'El spread his obsidian black, star-filled six wings and pointed his magnificent sword at the trembling creature.

Pharaoh, who shook his head frightfully, whimpered, "No... not me..."

Locking his eyes with the ruler of Egypt, Go'El bared his teeth at Rameses who quite simply moaned and wet himself and his bed. The angel gave Rameses a chilling smile and while still bearing his teeth Goel moved off to enter the room of Pharaoh's firstborn son.

As he viewed the child, angelic and beautiful in his slumber, Go'El caught a glimpse of his future. As Pharaoh, this child would sweep across the land like the plagues which devastated Egypt and lay waste to the whole world. A powerful despot, he would completely break the spirits of Israel and drive the people into complete and utter despondency of miserable servitude which would last another 300 years. God knew this, and in His undeniable wisdom determined he must die for the sake of Israel. Looking intently at the child, who was sleeping peacefully, Go'El unflinchingly reached out and powerfully wrenched the child's living spirit from his body, which caused the child's small frame to be wracked with painful spasms. His tiny form jerked in a series of seizures, causing the boy to die in excruciatingly agonizing pain and horror. Rameses heard his son's anguished cry abruptly cut off, and he sprang from his bed and bolted to the boy's bedchambers only to find the dark angel holding the spirit of his son. Go'El glared at Rameses as he allowed the soul of his child to descend into the ground and the dark netherworld of the Abyss. His mission completed, Go'El unfurled his wings and left the room with a blast of wind that knocked Pharaoh to the ground. The angel could hear the Egyptian father weeping over the dead body of his firstborn son. Go'El departed Egypt leaving death in his wake, knowing that the freedom of the people of God had been secured.

The Sentinels said in unison, “AS WE SAID DEMON, YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!” Swinging his maul high over his head, Asmodeus bellowed, “WE WILL SEE! I WILL CRUSH YOU BOTH AND SEND YOUR BONES TO YOUR IMPOTENT GOD!!”

With a heavy swing Asmodeus hammered his weapon into the two Sentinels and sent them sprawling across the ground. The Sentinels quickly regained their footing and attacked the demon of Persia with one assaulting high, the other coming in low. With the axe portion of his halberd, the high Sentinel swung at the throat of Asmodeus and with the spear of his halberd, the low Sentinel stabbed at the dark principality’s midsection viciously. With unbelievable velocity and dexterity, Asmodeus blocked their offenses and pressed one of his own. Asmodeus grabbed the throat of the high-attacking Sentinel and flung him forty feet into the air. He then used his own maul and struck the low-attacking Sentinel full in his face breaking his golden helmet and drawing a stream of ichor that arched across the demon’s war hammer. With fantastic agility, the demon of rage leaped into the air and caught the descending Sentinel angel by the collar of his armored breastplate. With incredible strength and thrust, Asmodeus slammed the angel head first into the ground creating a small impact crater and earthquake. Landing near the Sentinel’s broken form, Asmodeus placed his maul behind him and used his enormous strength to lift the stunned angel high into the air. The demon extended his arms upward, placing the remaining Sentinel on the evil principality’s shoulders. Asmodeus brutishly slammed him down in an elevated power bomb onto the dazed form of his twin, knocking them both unconscious.

Roaring in triumph, Asmodeus mocked, “WHO’S NEXT?!!”

Lucifer and the Fallen laughed at the ease in which Asmodeus dispatched the Sentinels. The dark lord yelled, “Asmodeus! Tear those gates down!”

With a vicious kick of the defeated Sentinels out of his path, Asmodeus removed his massive maul and hurled it at the gates of the temple. The weapon tore through the gates with an ear-splitting crash that left a mangled mass of steel, stone, and swirling dust and debris. Asmodeus then brought his huge hands together in a single clap that created a powerful shock wave. The force moved forward at supersonic speed like a detonation wave as it brought down an enormous section of the wall that surrounded the temple.

General Azazel turned to Lord Belial and said, “Send forth the Mazzikim Sheidim and show no mercy!”

Belial whirled his dragon around and barked, “First wave, attack!” A group of a thousand of the Mazzikim Sheidim swarmed like locusts toward the demolished gates ready to feast upon the inhabitants of the temple.

Lucifer called after them, “Do as you wish with the angels, but do not harm the humans for they are mine!” The demonic assault force slowed at Lucifer’s voice and acknowledged his command before proceeding.

Suddenly, a flash of light so intense it halted the demons in their tracks, and the angels of the Mal’akhim Charon af HaShem appeared ready for battle filling the courtyard completely. The evil wave started to fall in behind the Mazzikim Sheidim when Lucifer raised his hand which halted the lieutenants.

“In chess, it is prudent that the pawns move first. They remain strong when they move in a chain. You are my knights, bishops, and rooks; therefore, one of you will be instrumental in my checkmate.” Lucifer smiled mischievously, as he continued,

“Besides, I have something interesting planned for our prey that you all will find quite delectable.”
Like locusts swarming over lush fields of greenery, the Mazzikim Sheidim poured like the raging flood waters of a storm-laden river into the breached wall of the temple.

General Ariel, who stood at the head of the Mal’akhim Charon af HaShem and said with holy zeal, “No matter what darkness comes through those gates, stand your ground and defend this temple as you have in centuries past!”

Yes. Tatoos and brandings on the skin always have a demon attached to it . Its a way demons possess you and own you as their property. This is why the bible states for people not to get a tatoo or marking on their body. The mark of the beast is the mainstream marking of mankind, which is the most demonic and well known mark on the planet. Its literally forcing people to become demon possessed

I do believe you are mistaken in your response. the neuro-chemical process in the brain does not create anything. The eyes and ears does not create anything either. Our eyes and ears allow us to access what already exists. Likewise nothing is created by the brain. The brain provide access to something that already exist.

There are many drugs that will do to the brain what telescopes, etc does for the eye.

Much of our music and art and knowledge was brought back by few who could access the realm of where such exists in the 4th dimension,

The drive down I-95 from Andrews Air Force Base into Washington, D.C. to the Renwick Gallery was uneventful. Jonathan and Goel’s conversation was basically about the possibilities of what the President wanted to discuss with them. When the duo had arrived, they found they had an hour to spare. So, they decided to look at the different forms of art featured at the gallery. Jonathan graciously dismissed himself to the men’s room and left Goel near the painting of the angel Israf’El.
Goel stared at the picture incredulously, shook his head, and muttered disdainfully, “Hmmph! Yeah, right!”
When many thought of angels and envisioned them, they thought of fat little babies who spent all their time floating in the ethereal, looking around thoughtfully. Although they did spend a large portion of their time in thoughtful praise to God, angels were in fact fearsome warriors who were far from the chubby toddlers depicted. As a matter of fact, Israfel was one of the commanders of the Mal’akhim Habbalah who operated within the ranks of the Powers under the orders of Goel. And he knew that Israfel did not look that way. The commander was an angel of wrath and destruction and not some effeminate weakling who spent all day strumming a harp. He battled the forces of darkness with a keen eye, and a single-minded rapaciousness second to none.
Shaking his head, Goel walked away from the painting and noticed a small child standing in a corner crying softly. The beautiful little boy had golden blond hair and big blue eyes that were wet with tears.
Drawn to the fear that emanated from the child, Goel carefully approached the small boy and said gently, “What is wrong, little one?”
Looking up through his tears, the child said, “I lost my daddy, and I don’t know where he is.”
Compassionately, Goel kneeled in front of the distraught child and said, “Do not worry; your father will be here shortly. I will stay with you until he arrives.”
Immediately trusting the giant stranger, the boy placed his tiny hand in Goel’s larger ones and said with the innocence and insight commonplace to children, “Are you an angel?”
Knowing that children have a special affinity for seeing the ethereal, Goel answered truthfully and said, “Yes, little one, I am.”
The sweet, chubby face stared at him.
Smiling, Goel added, “We cannot tell everyone who I am just yet. We must keep it a secret for now, can you do that?”
The child vigorously nodded his head as the disguised angel knelt in front of him.
“Your name is Michael Daniel Worthington. You are named after your father and your mother’s father.”
Smiling joyously, Michael said, “You are an angel! You know my name!”
“That is correct, and I also know your mother has recently died.”
Sadly, the boy replied, “She was sick, and Jesus came to take her to Heaven.”
Goel eyes locked on Michael’s, and he replied, “You are an intelligent boy. Again, you are right. Jesus sent an angel, who is a friend of mine to bring her to him. She is very happy, and she loves you very much. She is not in any more pain, and she cannot wait to see you again.”
With wisdom beyond his meager years, Michael said, “I know Mommy is happy, but my Daddy isn’t. He misses her very much, and he is sad all the time, even though he thinks I don’t know it.”
The boy continued. “Daddy is mad at God for taking Mommy, and he doesn’t like church. I told him if he wants to see Mommy again he shouldn’t be mad at God, believe in Jesus, and go to church.”
Goel was amazed at Michael’s insight as he said, “Do you believe in Jesus, Michael?”
Michael vigorously nodded his head and said, “Yes! He died so that I can live!”
Goel tenderly placed his hand on the boy’s head and said, “Blessed are you, little one. Your faith as made you free, and your faith will save your father. Just keep praying for him, and he will see. And, guess what?”
“What?”
“I have a friend whose name is Micha’El, like yours. He trusts in God just like you. All will be just fine, you will see.”
Suddenly, a man bounded around the corner and said with a loud voice, “Michael! There you are!”
The boy’s father, Julian Michael Worthington, was a pretentious, arrogant man who rarely smiled. As a wealthy stock broker, money and the acquisition of more wealth was the only thing in life that gave him joy, other than his only son. His wife, Maria, was the one thing that gave him a reason to smile. When she died a slow death through ovarian cancer, the little faith he had died with her. Maria, on the other hand, was a devout Christian, and she passed her beliefs on to their adorable son. Julian, however, was the type of man who could only believe in that which was tangible. So, he had little time for something like faith in God.
Rushing up to his son, Julian said to Goel, “My clients rarely give me a moment’s peace. Being the top broker in my firm makes me a popular man, and they call me at the most inopportune times. I only turned my back for a second, and he was gone. Kids, you know how they are.”
Goel’s face was as impassive as stone.
“Yes. Being a busy man, it is hard to pay attention to that which is little.”
Julian cocked his head at what Goel had said to him, but after looking at Goel’s considerable size advantage, thought against saying the retort which had formed in his mind.
Instead, Julian stammered, “Uhh… well, my clients have entrusted me with a substantial amount of capital to invest.”
Reaching out suddenly, Goel grasped Julian’s arm in a vise-like grip of steel and said with a quiet power, “God has entrusted you with something far more precious than wealth or the gain of it, the life of your son! Do not be a fool. God is not mocked! Your wife’s fondest wish is to see you and her son in the next life, but at the rate you are going, you are headed for destruction! But you have time to change! Your son and wife love you very much and, most importantly, God does too! For the sake of your soul, listen to your son!”
Julian had never before felt the raw power of the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. It surged through his very being like an electrical charge. This stranger had conveyed to him what his wife had said to him so many times, but never like this. The widower remembered something his wife had told about being careful to be kind to strangers because many have entertained angels unaware. He wasn’t sure if this was an angel, but he was definitely someone special.
Taking his son by the hand, Julian said, “Thank you for caring for my son, and I hear your words. I will listen to him.”
Folding his arms across his massive chest, Goel rumbled, “See that you do.”
Looking upward, Goel continued, “He will be watching and listening.”
Little Michael looked back at Goel and said, “Thank you, mister! God bless you!”
Goel nodded nobly at the child and said, “He has and He will. And by the way, my name is Goel.”
Smiling at him, Michael said, “Thank you, Mr. Goel!”
Goel smiled at the boy and abruptly stopped when Julian looked at him.
Glaring sternly, Goel said, “Remember my words, Julian Worthington. Seek the Lord while He still can be found.”
Fearfully nodding his head, Julian turned to his son and said while walking away, “Did I tell him my name…?”
At that instant Jonathan returned from the bathroom.
“Did I miss anything?”
“Nothing of great import, only a brief conversation with a father and son.”
Knowing Goel did not mince words lightly, Jonathan smirked and said, “I’m sure, Goel.”

WHITENESS AS COLLECTIONS

… One of the mind-blowing things she shared was this idea of how our library collections, because they are written mostly by straight white men, are a physical manifestation of white men ideas taking up all the space in our library stacks. Pause here and think about this.

If you don’t already know, “whiteness as property,” is a seminal Critical Race Theory (CRT) concept first introduced by Cheryl I. Harris in her 1993 Harvard Law Review article by the same name. She writes, “slavery as a system of property facilitated the merger of white identity and property” (p. 1721) and the formation of whiteness as property required the erasure of Native peoples. Basically, white people want to stay being white because of the privilege and protection whiteness affords under the law that they created. Harris also makes this really good point, “whiteness and property share a common premise — a conceptual nucleus — of a right to exclude” (1714). Bam! That really hits it on the head.

As I’m collaborating on this book about CRT in Library and Information Studies (LIS), I’ve been having lots of discussions on these topics with some really smart folx.

… Listening to her talk about her ideas connected some dots for me and I made the final jump to whiteness as property as collections.

Let me now try to connect all these dots in a coherent way. As others have written (Fobazi Ettarh, Todd Honma, Gina Schlessman-Tarango, etc.), libraries and librarians have a long history of keeping People of Color out. They continue to do so, which you can read more about here and from the others I mentioned above. Legal and societal standards revolve around whiteness and libraries are no different.

If you look at any United States library’s collection, especially those in higher education institutions, most of the collections (books, journals, archival papers, other media, etc.) are written by white dudes writing about white ideas, white things, or ideas, people, and things they stole from POC and then claimed as white property with all of the “rights to use and enjoyment of” that Harris describes in her article. When most of our collections filled with this so-called “knowledge,” it continues to validate only white voices and perspectives and erases the voices of people of color. Collections are representations of what librarians (or faculty) deem to be authoritative knowledge and as we know, this field and educational institutions, historically, and currently, have been sites of whiteness.

Library collections continue to promote and proliferate whiteness with their very existence and the fact that they are physically taking up space in our libraries. They are paid for using money that was usually ill-gotten and at the cost of black and brown lives. …

I still have some thinking to do around this topic, but curious to hear what others think. I’m less interested in hearing that you don’t buy it, so don’t bother with those types of comments.

God does not have any wives, and the Bible metaphorically speaks of the church being the bride of Christ. You have asked this question to cause trouble and to harm those who believe, and it is no wonder that within a hundred years there will be a genocide of religious people by atheists, the seeds of which are being plenty now, and I have no doubt you will cheer them on.

Randy Alcorn #fundie desiringgod.org

I loved that Lewis clearly articulated the problem of evil and suffering better than most atheists, including Richard Dawkins. Yet he embraced a biblical worldview that had a far greater explanatory power than his atheism. And he passed it on to me and countless others.

Young people go to college unprepared intellectually for what they’ll face. Let’s feed them C.S. Lewis on evil and suffering before they hear the rants of atheist and agnostic college professors, most of them intellectual pygmies compared to Lewis. Let’s not leave it to the world to ask the hard questions — the Bible raises these very questions and answers them better than any other worldview. It was Lewis who first showed me that.

Transhumanism In Bible Prophecy

Transhumanism and the great rebellion

Is transhumanism in bible prophecy?

That's a great question, because this generation is poised to witness the emergence of a radical new social movement known as transhumanism.

Expressing an unshakable faith in the continued and rapid advance of human technology, transhumanists look to the future with what can only be described as a religious fervor.

Many of this movement's adherents point to the singularity (an exponential increase in technological advancement so rapid the unaided human mind is unable to grasp its implications) as the climax of human civilization.

Believing this event will usher in a new era for the human race in which limited mortals transcend their biological bodies and set out to conquer the universe, transhumanist anticipation of the singularity is comparable to Christian anticipation of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Ironically, the bible points out that in the time just prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ the world will be characterized by unparalleled human arrogance. Led by the Antichrist, the human race will not only launch a spiritual rebellion against God, but an actual physical confrontation between themselves and the King of kings, Jesus Christ.

The apostle Paul foresaw this conflict almost 2,000 years ago:

"For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed - the one who brings destruction. He will exalt himself and defy every god there is and tear down every object of adoration and worship. He will position himself in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God." 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NLT)

The Tower of Babel

To properly understand the origins of this rebellion, we must first examine the development of human civilization in the aftermath of the flood. It is a time marked by another rebellion first chronicled in Genesis Chapter 11.

It's the story of the Tower of Babel:

"At one time the whole world spoke a single language and used the same words. As the people migrated eastward, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia and settled there. They began to talk about construction projects. 'Come,' they said, 'let's make great piles of burnt brick and collect natural asphalt to use as mortar. Let's build a great city with a tower that reaches to the skies - a monument to our greatness! This will bring us together and keep us from scattering all over the world.'

But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 'Look!' he said. 'If they can accomplish this when they have just begun to take advantage of their common language and political unity, just think of what they will do later. Nothing will be impossible for them! Come, let's go down and give them different languages. Then they won't be able to understand each other.'

In that way, the Lord scattered them all over the earth; and that ended the building of the city. That is why the city was called Babel, because it was there that the Lord confused the people by giving them many languages, thus scattering them across the earth." Genesis 11:1-9 (NLT)

In this story, God scatters the human race and confuses them with different languages. His reason for doing so is to avoid the inevitable disaster wrought by global government and a common language.

Why are these things a concern?

Are you confident you can weather the current economic storm? Learn how to build an online business that works.

Because if they continue unabated, in due time, "nothing will be impossible" for the human race. This is more than a flippant comment by God. It's a prophecy of things to come.

It's a prophecy of something so bad, God put a stop to it the moment He first saw it. God knew that, left to pursue its technological development, the human race would one day challenge Him. After all, what was the motive for building the Tower of Babel in the first place?

"Let's build a great city with a tower that reaches to the skies - a monument to our greatness!" Genesis 11:4 (NLT)

The human race set out to build a monument to its own greatness, exalting mankind above God and extending its tower far into heaven with the sole intent of usurping God's glory and authority. This innate human desire did not end with the Tower of Babel. It continues to this day, and soon it will result in one final attempt to usurp the authority of God.
The Great Lie

The motive for this great rebellion will be predicated on lies. The bible predicts that deception will be rampant in the end times.

And just as God hardened the heart of Pharaoh for putting faith in his own power, He will do the same to the inhabitants of the earth who will become drunk with their own power:

"So God will send great deception upon them, and they will believe all these lies." 2 Thessalonians 2:11 (NLT)

Paul makes it clear that these people will be deluded into believing "the lies."

But what exactly are the "lies" to which he refers?

A cursory examination of the first book of the Bible reveals a quote from the originator of lies. In fact, it's the very first lie referenced in the bible:

"'You won't die!' the serpent hissed. 'God knows that your eyes will be opened when you eat it. You will become just like God, knowing everything, both good and evil.'" Genesis 3:4-5 (NLT)

These lies from the Garden of Eden are the same lies to which Paul refers.

The same lies which brought sin into the world will be the same lies which spark the ultimate rebellion against God Almighty. Humanity will come full circle.

In the last days, the same construction projects envisioned by the Tower of Babel architects will result in mankind achieving a level of technological sophistication so advanced that "nothing will be impossible for them."

The human race will come to believe the great lies of the serpent.

In his arrogance, man will believe he is:

1) Immortal
2) All-Knowing

and

3) Just like God

Mankind will mimic the earth-shattering arrogance of Lucifer by freely joining in his rebellious attempt to usurp the throne of God. Because without Jesus Christ, fallen mankind's ambition is the same as Lucifer's.

Centuries ago, Isaiah described this fallen being and his sinister motives:

"How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! You have been thrown down to the earth, you who destroyed the nations of the world. For you said to yourself, 'I will ascend to heaven and set my throne above God's stars. I will preside on the mountain of the gods far away in the north. I will climb to the highest heavens and be like the Most High.'" Isaiah 14:12-14 (NLT)

In the last days, this passage will not only be an accurate depiction of Satan, but of all mankind.
The Transhumanist Movement

The latest incarnation of man's rebellion against God is the transhumanist movement.

Many within the movement believe the singularity will lead to the emergence of "post-biological humans" who are able to shed their biological bodies and "upgrade their hardware." Others believe that by downloading themselves into a network, they will effectively become "immortal."

True believers have modified their diets, exercise routines, and entire lifestyle in an effort to increase the likelihood of living to witness human reversal of the aging process and eventual human "immortality."

Ray Kurzweil - inventor, author, and transhumanist - is considered one of the best in the world at accurately forecasting short-term and intermediate technological trends.

In Chapter 7 of his bestselling book "The Singularity is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology," he describes his view of the ultimate outcome of our technological advance:

"The matter and energy in our vicinity will become infused with the intelligence, knowledge, creativity, beauty, and emotional intelligence (the ability to love, for example) of our human-machine civilization. Our civilization will then expand outward, turning all the dumb matter and energy we encounter into sublimely intelligent - transcendent - matter and energy. So in a sense, we can say the Singularity will ultimately infuse the universe with spirit."

According to Kurzweil, the universe will be infused with "spirit" as a result of the natural advance of our human-machine civilization. This infers that the universe is not already infused with "spirit," and that if God exists, His designs are inferior to those that will be created by the predicted human-machine civilization.

In the next paragraph, he describes the advancement of the human-machine civilization as approaching the very conception of God. Ironically, he admits that the accelerating growth of evolution can never achieve the infinite character traits exclusive to God:

"Evolution moves toward greater complexity, greater elegance, greater knowledge, greater intelligence, greater beauty, greater creativity, and greater levels of subtle attributes such as love. In every monotheistic tradition God is likewise described as all of these qualities, only without any limitation: infinite knowledge, infinite intelligence, infinite beauty, infinite creativity, infinite love, and so on. Of course, even the accelerating growth of evolution never achieves an infinite level, but as it explodes exponentially it certainly moves rapidly in that direction. So evolution moves inexorably toward this conception of God, although never quite reaching this ideal. We can regard, therefore, the freeing of our thinking from the severe limitations of its biological form to be an essentially spiritual undertaking."

The concluding sentence of this paragraph should send up red flags for every student of bible prophecy. According to Kurzweil, as the human race moves forward, it will seek to free its thinking "from the severe limitations of its biological form."

The bible reveals that one day mankind will gather its armies in an attempt to "break the chains of God and set themselves free from His bondage." Psalm 2 describes this confrontation:

"Why do the nations rage? Why do the people waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against His Anointed One. 'Let us break their chains,' they cry. 'And free ourselves from this slavery.' But the one who rules in heaven laughs. The Lord scoffs at them." Psalm 2:1-4 (NLT)

Could this passage describe an attempt by post-biological humans to overthrow the rule of God?

Could the chains which hold them in bondage be the "severe limitations of their biological form"?

Remember, when this event occurs, Satan and his fallen angels are also inhabitants of the earth:

"Rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea. For the Devil has come down to you in great anger, and he knows that he has little time." Revelation 12:12 (NLT)

In his arrogance and desperation, Satan will advance the dark powers of the spiritual realm, aided by a fallen mankind with powers beyond our current limitations, in a last ditch effort to defeat God.

The technological advancements of the near future will provide mankind with unprecedented power, and the ambitious goals of the transhumanist movement are already in direct conflict with God Himself.

The following verse provides additional support for believing transhumanism will play a pivotal role in this final rebellion. In the New Testament, when Jesus describes the signs of His Coming to the disciples, He makes an interesting statement in light of our times:

"And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." Matthew 24:22 (KJV)

Throughout the centuries, this verse has been interpreted as meaning the Second Coming of Christ will arrive just in time to save the human race from itself, meaning human wars would threaten to cause the extinction of the human race.

However, it might mean that "no flesh will be saved" because a nakedly ambitious human race will transform itself into a race of "post-biological humans" intent on reshaping the universe according to an alternative agenda.

Given the history of human rebellion against God, it would be unwise to discount this possibility.

The Great Rebellion

Just as Paul prophesied, human ambition will ultimately lead to a great rebellion against God. This rebellion will reach its zenith at Armageddon, an actual geographical location in modern day Israel. The gathering of the world's armies at Armageddon will not be (as some believe) a war of humans versus humans, but rather a literal physical confrontation between rebellious mankind and the King of kings, Jesus Christ. In addition to Psalm 2, this battle is referenced multiple times in scripture, and it's clearly referenced twice in the Book of Revelation:

"These miracle-working demons caused all the rulers of the world to gather for battle against the Lord on that great judgment day of God Almighty." Revelation 16:14 (NLT)

"Then I saw the beast gathering the kings of the earth and their armies in order to fight against the one sitting on the horse and his army." Revelation 19:19 (NLT)

The "one sitting on the horse" is identified as Jesus Christ. Literally interpreted, both these passages state that the world will gather for battle against Jesus Christ. The bible is clear about this, yet for countless generations, these passages have been interpreted as a mere spiritual battle and not as a literal physical conflict. It's not difficult to image why. The idea of mankind physically engaging God in battle seems so preposterous that these passages have given way to numerous symbolic interpretations over the years. Yet scripture is clear. Remember what God Himself said about the human race that will ultimately fulfill His Tower of Babel prophecy - "nothing will be impossible for them!"

In fact, the Book of Daniel reveals that the Antichrist will manage to attack "the heavenly armies, throwing some of the heavenly beings and stars to the ground and trampling them":

"From one of the prominent horns came a small horn whose power grew very great. It extended toward the south and east and toward the glorious land of Israel. His power reached to the heavens where it attacked the heavenly armies, throwing some of the heavenly beings and stars to the ground and trampling them. He even challenged the Commander of heaven's armies by canceling the daily sacrifices offered to him and by destroying his Temple." Daniel 8:9-11 (NLT)

The power of the Antichrist and the human beings of his era will far exceed what our generation can currently imagine. As proof, Daniel describes a time when the Antichrist will engage Jesus Christ Himself in battle:

"He will even take on the Prince of princes in battle, but he will be broken, though not by human power." Daniel 8:25 (NLT)

The human race, led by the Antichrist, will take on the Lord Himself in battle. Like the Tower of Babel generation, the arrogance of this final generation will extend all the way into the heavens, where the human race will attempt to usurp the glory and authority of God Himself. But just like the Tower of Babel generation, their efforts will end in utter failure.
Conclusion

The transhumanist agenda serves as a reminder of what the human race is without the blood of Jesus Christ - an enemy of God. A movement which views its ultimate purpose as bringing enlightenment to the universe sets itself up in direct opposition to God's own purpose. This is the very definition of rebellion, and it's the inevitable result of fallen mankind's sinful nature.

Yet despite our sinful nature, God provided us with the free gift of salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. All we have to do is accept this gift. Those who accept it will experience peace and everlasting life, but those who reject it will become slaves to sin, and their ambition - like Satan's - will one day lead to an outright physical confrontation with God Himself. It's a battle that God will win.

(In answer to “What will the world be like the day after the rapture occurs?”)

The day after, the news of the 7000 dead will be televised everywhere. Nations of the United Nations will say where does the USA have the right to kill those who were raptured. At this moment they will ignore the many Christians who claim they are being visited by people who werekilled in it. Imagine killed in New York but visiting your Malawi relatives the same day after death.

The nations will all say this (how dare you kill our citizens) because many will be 7-day green card or visa passports from THEIR country. The USA President will blame the churches who lied to him saying this was a suicide. Blame the grape Kool-Aid served. I guess serving grape Kool-Aid jokes about churches gives the right to kill them saying they were there to stop death. BUT did they stop death in Waco. From what i recall, not a gun was fired of all those Waco stored weapons. Now with no weapons and no poison in the grape Kool-Aid how do you justify this church was threatened and then killed. The other churches caused it, and now these churches (all churches of the world) will not let the USA force PEACE on them, and so now those churches do fight, and UNTIL they are all dead. The effect sweeping the planet everywhere. Meanwhile those 7000 killed are unveiled to Satan that God has found 144,000 perfect people (perfect-enough) to let them all be flesh for 40 days to save Christian human flesh thru asteroid Armageddon which puts the water canopy greenhouse back up. Thus the HELL is 40 days of hell for YOU, but 40 days rejoicing for Christians knowing day 40 starts the year-long Flood and its survival on mountains. The rapid growth of plants and fruit for food with that water canopy is so much nicer than Noah’s getting off the ark to eat animals and grass grain (bread). But the year on island mountains will be very rationing. I suggest killing nasty beast to feed the hungry animals that crowd around the human survivors. I noticed in Miami how birds and cats gather to be fed by fisherman gutting their fish.
