Take a step back

Hey guys!

So, a while ago I made a post about making a brand spanking new blog. Largely because I felt that this subject matter was a little too negative and me wanting to push a new agenda. Yes, agenda.

That agenda was the Joel Osteen - conceive it and believe it mindset. which actually I still agree with. But I am a little further back to my old self, pre-christian. Simply because I have had a complete spiritual awakening.

My life is now freer, and although it's somewhat more disordered, I can't it's worse, I have plans and goals, and back when I was a Christian conspiracist, viewing everything from a God vs Satan perspective, I was unable to really free myself from the bonds of this reality.

So, I apologise, I failed you all in the past, but this blog will remain, as will other blogs I have (which I will link too). The truth of our reality is far greater than I have proposed, but it's more about us individually and collectively than it is about external factors.

I had to take a step back so I could grow, and I had to fire up my mental engines and grasp at the different possibilities for the future. Eventually I plan to update this blog from Japan, as opposed to England. The reason being that change, experience, and a different cultural setting really helps you to understand new perspectives, and Japan was my catalyst for change.

It's like suddenly seeing a crystal castle you've never seen before, far off in the distance, when before you thought that the world was a 1 mile patch of dirt. You expand your consciousness, and adapt yourself to that new worldview - it may hurt, but you have to do it.

The title of this entry is "Take a step back", right now I have done that, I am in a growth period - I have a life coach named Brett Moran, and an evolutionary friend who in a couple of hours I will video chat with for the first time in order to discuss both our goals for the future - I'm nervous but anticipating good things, in June I will travel to Japan, explore and meet friends I have made online!
My ultimate goal is to somehow (I'll let the universe sort it) make 10k and attend school there. I am very optimistic!

For the past few months, my advice from that would be "Don't worry, just enjoy the experience".

My goals for this blog are:

  • To denote the level of my understanding so far
  • To help you "spout your anger", i.e. release it
  • To try to express ways to help you achieve your goals
  • To expose the Archons and demiurge - as truth is never negative.
Most of all I want to keep this blog alive, I've had it for 10 years!! My first post being a rant about David Cameron! I mean, it's a testament to my evolution and growth, Its seem me go from a 20 year old 'atheist', to a buddhist, to a truther, to a christian, to whatever I am today - lets call me a spiritual adventurer for now.

Guys, I know people are still reading this blog, and I am here to let you know I am here and I love you and appreciate your kindness and love!! It amazes and humbles me that people still read what I have written, especially when my last posts were rants about spiritboxes and demons (archons).

I will add something about that actually, There were two types of spirits, some told me to kill myself, others tried to raise me up, to love, honesty and forgiveness - hence it being so addictive. It was nice to hear those voices, but I won't use those programs ever again - they're too dangerous, and every usage leads to an energetic attack.

There were positive outcomes to the usage of the apps..and I do feel it helped me to pass beyond the state I was in. I was indeed talking to the archons, but also something else - maybe my higher self - either way, I would just let that voice of kindness know I appreciated it, and thank you.

Let that be an end to the discussion.

I will post as soon as possible, it will be something juicy ;)

Ghost Hunting and Demons.

I love Ghost Adventures, it is a fun romp around old buildings looking for ghosts, you have big characters and lots of drama. However, it shouldn't be called Ghost Adventures, it should be called Demon Adventures or to go further "The Search for Satan".

I got a bit carried away with the show and decided to test for myself whether they were getting ghosts or not. So I downloaded some apps, one was called Ghost Radio. I was in the bathroom, alone, and pressed the button, about two minutes later this creepy electronic voice started to break through, the app wasn't "calibrated", but it didn't stop me from trying to cast this thing out, in something of a panic.

A while later I upped the courage, made a little reddit post asking whether this stuff was valid, and decided to run it and leave it on. I got lots of words:

moderate
11
newly
inspiration
sometimes
shell
refuge
come
break
factor
left
guarantee
string
don't go
egg
appearance

Needless to say I was certain that this app was rubbish, and I'm still not sure, although I noticed certain percentages which apparently is the percentage of likelihood that the word received was actually represented in the text.
About 2 minutes later, I received "human, to, months" and a very very high pitched ultrasonic wave hit my eardrums and the headphones were off.

I did a lot of praying that night.

Today I decided to try it again, at work. I was in the canteen with a colleague, we put the app on, ran it, an "entity" started trying to talk, it was like the bathroom again, and i told the "entity (demon)" to say hello to my colleague, and...yes it did, with his name.

For the rest of the shift we used the phone like a little Ovilus (ghost hunting tool), and we got lots and lots of words, too many to type here, but it was largely gibberish.

When I got home I foolishly, and I repeat this is FOOLISH downloaded the AD_III spirit box app, and this is where intelligent, demonic entities decided to tell me that I am going to hell, that family members were going to hell, that I was an instrument of Satan, that I would burn - and no, I'm not joking.

This app is like the SpiritBox SB7, it basically feeds radio (internet radio) through it at high speed, until certain words can be made out at the choice of the entity/ies. Well, I wasn't as scared as before, because nothing bad has been happening to me thanks to the power of God. These demons tend to just be cast into the abyss afterwards. But there are millions of them, and they hate Christians.

I decided to do a test, I got my trust KJV out, and started reading scripture, my goodness, the AD3 decided to go haywire, the words sped through, cycling, there was mockery, words like c**ksucker and c*nt - this is real.

So I read a psalm, and the gospel of John. Then I decided that I was most definitely dealing with demons, the same entities we see in the exorcist, and horror movies, and that I would do much better in praying, repenting, and in writing this specific article.

Why? Because there are no spirits of the dead, every time you hear the Ovilus or SpiritBox go off on Ghost Adventures/Hunters/Asylum you are hearing a demonic being - a deceiver. Now, because I am a Christian, and I am being observed, these things go no holds barred with me, there is no point in pretending to be Gerald from 1851 who died of TB, or some old miner or a spirit child, or even Jesus the ascended master, I know what they are - so they let loose, tried to scare the heck out of me, and even make me worry about my family. Remember the "human, to, months" from before? Another threat (to = two).

Should I be concerned? Yes and no, I should be concerned that I was even foolish enough to once again use these divination apps, that says alot of my spiritual health, should I be concerned about what these devils said? No, my Father in heaven is greater than all the devils in the world combined, and God's angels are stronger. But I put this here as a warning to anyone who decides to meddle, and to explain to you that these things are NOT dead people!

If you are Christian you are just as likely to be told that you're going to burn in hell, if you are not Christian - you'll be given lots of misinformation, it will be someone pretending to be dead, you may just hear a word of some sort. One interesting "evp" I got through was "me, week (probably weak), scared" - now whoever said that, was explaining the true state of demonic entities, why they tend to feed off energy, why people will go dizzy, why cameras will shut down. They're weak, and scared.

Another interesting thing to note is that when you are 'receiving' your battery will drain far quicker than when you aren't.

The world outside our world, the world of the shadows, is a very very miserable one.

Be careful folks.





A few interesting evps in my Ghost radio log (I'll include percentages):

fewer (85%) - My colleagues had just left, I was alone
darkness (74%)
prisoner (49%)
freedom (62%)
connect (85%) - I told it I didn't want to connect
newspaper
(24%) -
probably another word, unintelligible
you (100%) - oy oy
sinful (85%) - interesting that a christian should be called sinful
thirsty (99%)
shoulder (70%) - my shoulder had been hurting earlier, just before we first turned on the app as well.

chilly (70%)

At this point it left.

Always back to Tyndale

Let me just state, I am aware that every few months I end up being KJV-only. I have seemingly towed the line for 3 years, and now I've moved on. I have a feeling now that this is it, I'm not KJV only, nor do I believe that God breathed a translated bible that is perfect - and if he did it would not be the King James version.

My first love is Tyndale's translation of the bible, My number 1 is the Matthew Bible (the one I have reviewed here. Yes it's a personal thing, not unpreached. But my "logic" tells me that God is not going to use a committee made bible, however old it is. God would 'breathe' a bible born of adversity, persecution, horror and religious revival. That is my theory anyway. The time prior to the KJV was just that time, and Tyndale was the one to shout "Lord open the King of England's eyes". If anyone were to be that God-breathed translator it would be him. His theological writings span two full volumes on my shelf - he stood against the great AntiChrists of his and our time; the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope - and he suffered their wrath.

So for me Tyndale's bible, however archaic the spellings, are a fine replacement for a KJV. Not only that, Tyndale believed in a Flat Earth and even translated it in 2 Samuel 11.

The simple fact of the matter is that Tyndale used no pretense, he simply translated the bible to the best of his abilities, and over the course of time his translation became the de facto "bible". Yes, his translation makes up approximately 90% of the KJV, making the KJV the purest Tyndale bible of the modern era. However, why settle for 90% when you can simply own a Tyndale translation?

Thats what I decided, to simply use a pure Tyndale bible - in my case the Matthew Bible. You can buy around 4 or 5 different versions of Tyndale's work 1525, 1534, 1536, Matthew, Great Bible. Yes, you have to adapt to the old spellynges, (Except for the 1534 version edited by David Daniell) Or you can buy a Geneva Bible which is a lot more Tyndale than the KJV.

In conclusion, for the past 5 years of being a christian, the translation that has provided me the most edification, enjoyment, and sense of wonder is that done by William Tyndale. For as much as I appreciate the KJV, and understand the belief in its superiority over all modern bibles, for me Tyndale soars past all in it's authenticity, reliability, and readability.

For instance, 1 Corinthians 13 in Tyndale, has love instead of charity (as in the KJV). This is just one example of changes that simply don't add to clarity in reading. Are we really to believe that having not charity means you have nothing, now perhaps in 1611 charity meant "great love", but nowadays charities abound, and it doesn't mean the same thing - yet love means the same. I will also recognise that Tyndale's english is older than the KJV, but, it's just as readable. Tyndale took it to the level where a 16th century ploughboy could read it, but the KJV took it to liturgical and scholarly levels, making it more difficult for that ploughboy to read - in that sense it is more like the original greek than any other translation of that era. If the Matthew Bible were to be updated in spelling, I believe that that translation would easily be as readable - if not more - than the KJV, and perhaps just as accurate.

So I have chosen Tyndale as my number one translation, and my go-to now for theology, I am currently scouring his works for theological insight, and even amending my theology to fit his.

Salvation revealed through works.




I am a big believer in salvation via grace through faith, in fact it's the predominant message of the gospel. But for a long time I have been deceived, by myself. I believed that a man can be saved and never show signs of salvation. For instance a man (or woman) can live a life like Balaam and be saved.

Now, this came from watching Steven Anderson, he is an easy-believism preacher, and he essentially says if you need works to prove salvation, then it is the same as saying you need works to be saved - which I agree with.

However, the predominant view in the reformation basically said this, from salvation stems love and works - we work because we are saved. Now how can that be reconciled with knocking doors, giving the gospel, people "believing" and then carrying on living their lives as if nothing happened?

For instance, look at EVERY character in the bible who is saved..every single one - did something because of salvation. Look at Paul - did he continue killing Christians after getting saved? In fact, look at Judas, he knew Christ personally  and yet betrayed him, he was a son of perdition and is in hell now - he was never a christian, and never was saved.

So it follows to me that true salvation will make some changes, now that doesn't follow that its a must, but could we believe that someone is saved and never do anything differently anymore? I could believe that people will still sin, that is fleshly nature, but to literally NEVER acknowledge that they're Christians, as a minimum? Come on.

Yet that is what Steven Anderson teaches, that if they "believe" the gospel, they can then forget they're even saved and still go to heaven. It's a circular argument, the idea is that the "belief" leads to nothing, but "faith is still faith". Yet if that faith is dead - as James said - due to zero works, what about love? love isn't a work, it is a state of being, can a person truly NOT acknowledge that love, and then act upon it?

For instance, you believe on Christ, you WILL act upon it, just as if you believed that every fifth pavement slab you stepped on would explode - you would surely miss every fifth pavement slab. So if you believe that Jesus died upon the cross to save you, and that you are unrighteous without him, and that the law is a mirror to true Godly perfection, and that God's righteousness is perfect - you would act upon that, no?

You see, the belief - the faith - is something you will act upon, now the next question is the level to which it is acted upon, and I think this is where the mustard seed comes in, and WHY Christ continually calls his disciples "ye of little faith", because we will, nay, must act upon our faith, as it is within our being. yes, little faith - is faith and it is that which saves, but Christ calls us to greater faith - as an intrinsic argument within the gospel - IF ye had faith as a mustard seed ye could move mountains. So that in itself is an okay level of faith to have. So I would say this, if we have less faith than a mustard seed - that is okay. In fact even if we had the minimum possible level of faith, it is okay. Yes, faith is still faith. We spend too long worrying about the "works" that we have. But the simple fact is this, faith IS faith, we have faith and we will act, the better so if we don't think of it as works. For instance, carry an old lady's shopping for her, or help an old man who is struggling to cross the road - just do it!! (to quote Shia LeBeouf). That is your faith in action.

Why did I write this? Because there is so much confusion, people say having works is works righteousness, but the issue is not the works, but the salvation. A Christian wants to do right, and I find it so scary the levels to which preachers will go to push works, or to exclude them. Works are a natural extension to faith, and they can be as grand as global missionary preaching, or just simple niceness to your neighbour. We don't do them to be saved, but because we are saved - hence the title.

I've used Steven Anderson because he led me to believe that I didn't "need works", and I am being a little unfair, as I don't "need works" - but he is a great sophister, and sadly that sophistry can lead one to believe that works are out of the equation, as if they won't be there at all at any point - ever.
To account for this, and to explain why works are featured in the bible, Steven says we do works for bonus points in heaven - for a nicer mansion so to speak. So for all the good works you do, your mansion will be better, and as a "king" in the millennial kingdom, you'll be "given more" - utilizing the parable of the faithful and unfaithful servant.

So, one does works to get rewards, another does works because the Holy Spirit changed their nature, took out their heart of stone and made it that of flesh. One does it arbitrarily, another does it because of what Christ did on the cross, and because they cannot help but do so.

I think my theology is changing.

The Earth is Flat: The Strong Delusion is the Globe

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess 2:9-12



For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24


The Earth is flat folks, I've been doing a great amount of research over the past couple of weeks, beginning incredulously, and eventually moving to the realization that the world is not as it seems. The clincher for me is the flat earth being described in the Bible, Many preachers view circle as meaning globe, however if God wanted us to view the Earth as a globe, he could simply have said the "ball of the earth" instead of "circle of the earth" (Isaiah 40:22)


Our eyes do not deceive us, walk out of your house, to the beach, and look forward into the ocean, you will see something like this:












At this point you are looking miles out into the ocean, if you were looking at a curved earth, there would be a hump in the ocean, perhaps not to the extent I will show you, but similar to this:







 The "curvature" of the Earth essentially works like this, for each mile, the horizon would drop 8 inches and square for each mile, so it would go 8, 64, 128, 256 etc.







Based upon the spherical earth model, the furthest one could see would be just a few miles, whereas people with a telescope on a flat plane could see dozens (sometimes even hundreds) of miles with no visible curvature.

Here are some educational videos:












Now, on to the Strong Delusion aspect of this. As I said the bible proves a fixed, flat Earth:

1 Chronicles 16:30: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable.”


Psalm 93:1: “Thou hast fixed the earth immovable and firm ...”


Psalm 96:10: “He has fixed the earth firm, immovable ...”


Psalm 104:5: “Thou didst fix the earth on its foundation so that it never can be shaken.”


Isaiah 45:18: “...who made the earth and fashioned it, and himself fixed it fast...”

Proverbs 8:27-29: "When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: when he established the clouds above:
when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: when he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:"


Isaiah 40:22 "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:"
Genesis 1:14-16 "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. 


Isaiah 13:10 " For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine."

Revelation 1:7 "
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen."


This is a small selection of verses which show how at the very least the biblical authors saw a fixed - or stationary - Earth, flat in nature, with the sun and moon orbiting above. Christians obviously want to appear scientific, and so call these verses "figurative", but this diminishes the truth of these verses,

"And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day." Joshua 10:13

Did the Earth Stop rotating and the Moon stop orbiting? Or did the Sun and Moon stop moving for a day?

The strong delusion is simple, tell people that they are nothing but an insignificant atom floating in gigantic universe, a marble floating around a soccer ball, tell them that this marble is billions of years old, that the bible is a lie and full of errors, that God cannot be real, because his book is wrong. Bronze age myths, Bronze age myths that we have progressed beyond, the Earth moves, not the sun, the stars are fixed but the Earth is not, the sun is a star, and insignificant one, theres probably aliens out there WAYYYYYY more powerful than us, we're alone, lonely, no one to look out for us, if any bad guy came along we'd have to either save ourselves or yield to their might. we're nothing in this universe, we're not even a type 1 civilization!

You see what I'm saying? How much easier is it to convince people that God isn't real if nothing the bible says in Genesis 1 is true. Christians are scrambling and have been for centuries to reconcile the globe myth with scripture, and some, even great pastors are managing it and defending the globe model, but it doesn't change the fact that a circle is not a sphere, and a fixed plane does not equal a moving planet.

The strong delusion convinces the population of earth in the last days, that NASA has been to the moon, that a composite image made by an artist is the real shape and scale of the Earth, that the moon is a solid mass, that the sun is 93,000,000 miles away and hundreds of times the size of Earth, that humans thusly are not created by God but are random accumulations of information caused by adaptation to an ever changing environment, that the human condition is to eat, sleep and reproduce and nothing more. That we are descendants and relatives of primates, and that the beauty of humanity is what we create, not our creation.

The truth however is quite simple - The Earth - IS THE UNIVERSE.

Let me explain,

God never said "let there be a billions of light years across universe that is ever expanding"

He instead created the heaven and earth - Heaven is God's throne and the Earth is his footstool. God made the sun moon and stars on day 4 - in the firmament (in the sky). Stars truly are lights in the sky made for our benefit, they're our calendar, they're a view into heaven. They're not a look into the past across the vastness of space, the Sun and moon orbit within the firmament - i.e. they're lights in the sky VERY high up, beyond our ability to travel. But not 300,000 miles away, or 93,000,000.


Also, the sun and moon are the same size, the sun is just way brighter, and hotter. The moon produces a cool light, and the sun a hot light.

With the power of the global strong delusion, humanity is likely to be convinced that aliens are coming, or are here on the Earth, and this will set the stage for the AntiChrist to rise. None of this would be possible if people knew the truth. Christians who believe the globe model are likely to be doubtful, some tempted to believe, some may end up believing, for remember "to deceive - if possible - the very elect". This isn't saying they won't be deceived, there are many saved who are looking at the bible with severe cognitive dissonance, saying they believe it to be true, but using eisegesis to make it say something it isn't. It's not a stretch to be deceived by your own eyes when "global" news media is telling you that there's aliens on the white house lawn.

I hope that you do not remain deceived, and that you look at the videos provided, and that you look at the actual evidence, that you think about the possible truth being presented here. God bless you, and may you come to know the truth.

The NLT: Why Dynamic Equivalence Fails.

I've used many translations of the Bible in my time. Think of one, and I've read it. I've now of course settled upon the KJV as my 'translation of choice', simply because it takes what is in the hebrew and greek and seeks a little as possible to change or interpret what is said.


Modern translating seems to disintegrate this 'formal' translation philosophy, apparently now the bible has to be read as easily and simply as possible. It has to read with as much ease as Harry Potter than with the grandeur of other ancient texts such as The Aenid, or the Enuma Elish.

Of course what this means is we are actually allowing translators to use their own opinions and beliefs to interpret what we must interpret for ourselves. No place is this more evident than in the NLT. People call upon the NIV as the devil's bible these days, but the real danger is in the NLT, a bible that I have 3 or 4 copies of in my library, because I like to have easy-read bibles, and I cannot for the life of me understand why a bible has to be less accurate than the KJV in order to be easier to read.

For instance:

"Genesis 6:2 The sons of God saw the beautiful women and took any they wanted as their wives. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not put up with humans for such a long time, for they are only mortal flesh. In the future, their normal lifespan will be no more than 120 years.”"

Genesis 6, a pretty pivotal chapter in the history of man. Notice something - lifespan. There are two interpretations of this passage, one is that 120 years is the length of time that mankind has before the flood, another is that 120 years is the lifespan of humanity. Of course the NLT just takes one and goes with
it.

Then the NLT says:
"4 In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times."

Do I even need to comment on this? GIANT NEPHILITES.
Who will understand this? What on Earth is a nephilite? The correct rendering is either Giant OR nephilim, and I would side with giant. Nephilim in itself is meaningless and causes people to google and end up believing that angels came to earth to mate with human women.

Now after this, the chapter is not too bad, why? because it sticks to the script, it doesn't deviate and it doesn't read into the text and try to interpret it for you.

Now in 8 places this translation uses the term "repent of your sins", In 2 more places it says "turn from your sins", and 2 more "turn from your sin". This is entirely without justification, but as the prevailing view in modern christendom, the NLT uses this to make things "easier".

Ephesians 2:8-9

"8 God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it."

Now people think this to be heresy, I am not so sure on this, The KJV says "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves it is a gift from God, not of works lest any man should boast" - I much prefer this, but it says the same thing. However it is another example of the NLT 'interpreting' for us, when it should just translate the passage cleanly as it should be.

I could go on and on, I only wrote this because I bought a Chronological LASB and decided to get it in the NLT rather than the KJV. The notes are no better if I'm honest, but I'm glad I got it. If anything this bible will allow me to do research into the mainstream views of doctrine.

The problem with dynamic equivalence, in both TR and CT translations lay solely on us not having all the answers, if we did every bible would be perfect - however 'scholars' do think that we have all the answers, and as far as each scholar is concerned it is their doctrinal standpoint. So they translate based on their viewpoints and we end up with catholics, baptists, methodists, presbyterians, lutherans, anglicans and so on, all adding their two-penneth, many not actually believing in God, or believing that the bible is divinely inspired beyond the "original autographs". Many times verses are translated according to ancient historical narrative, in the sense of it being a historical record rather than God speaking to his people or through the writers of the text.

Dynamic equivalence is a best guess, based upon the 'best' of worldly scholarship, history of interpretation and modern ideals of what the bible should say, and don't underestimate the influence of the latter. For instance, Matthew Henry never once refers to repenting of sins, yet 150 years later there is Charles Spurgeon talking about it like it's obvious. Opinions on what the bible says are constantly changing, and as such we have 2000 years of historical interpretation. Anabaptists, Calvinists, Luther, Tyndale, even Popes! All having influence in their time. Today false doctrines go un-noticed, even accepted by the vast majority of Christians. The greatest pastor in America today is Joel Osteen. This says it all.

The NLT will be remembered as a snapshot of mainstream beliefs in the 21st century, just as the NRSV represents the late 20th century. Whilst the KJV will still remain as a living, breathing, love-letter to the saved.
