“How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners nor sit in the seat of scoffers.”
- Psalm 1:1

They cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation comes from our God, who is seated on the throne, and from the Lamb.”
- Revelations 7:10

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends, and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”
- John Lennon, before his murder by Mark David Chapman

“A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.”
- Aristotle

“To state the thing in brief, priests and politicians “colleagued together”, and invented the Devil and his domicile as scare-crows to frighten the ignorant superstitious masses into quiet, submissive allegiance to the ecclesiastical tribunals, namely, “the powers that be."”
- Kersey Graves

“There’s a sucker born every minute”
- P.T. Barnum

REPUBLICAN, RELIGIOUS right, NEOCON, WINGNUTS can REST EASY.

According to Father Jim, Sarah Palin will save us all.

Hallelujah

“Barack, Sarah, and the Bible”

Dear friends:

Barack Hussein OBAMA has taken the nation by storm.  From obscurity, with zero executive experience, or much of any kind, he has vaulted into the position of Presidential frontrunner.  It is stunning. On the surface, it appears attributable only to his eloquent oratory and his race.  But an invisible factor may be a strong spiritual force behind him, causing some people to actually swoon in his presence.

I have been very concerned that he has publicly said that he does not believe Jesus is the only way to heaven.  This makes both the Bible and Jesus a liar, and it means that Christ has died in vain.  A person cannot be a true Christian who believes that there are other ways of forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life with God.  Only Jesus has paid the price for that.  He also made fun of some of the scriptures in OUR Bible.

Therefore, there is, indeed, another spirit involved.  And this spirit has come into our national life like a flood.  Last week at Obama’s acceptance speech, that spirit exalted itself in front of a Greek temple-like stage, and toa huge audience like in a Roman arena.  Obama was portrayed as god-like. His voice thundered as a god’s voice.

At the end, Democratic sympathizer Pastor Joel Hunter gave the benediction and shockingly invited everyone to close the prayer to their own (false) gods.

This was surely an abomination, but it was compatible with Obama’s expressed theology, and Hunter’s leftist leanings.

God was NOT PLEASED.

And God says, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” (Isaiah 59:19)

Enter Governor Sarah Palin.  With incredible timing, the very next day, Sarah Palin also appeared out of nowhere.  Her shocking selection as John McCAIN’S running mate stunned the world and suddenly took all the wind out of Obama’s sails.

We quickly learned that Sarah is a born-again, Spirit-filled Christian, attends church, and has been a ministry worker.

Sarah is that STANDARD God has raised up to stop the flood.  She has the anointing.  You can tell by how the dogs are already viciously attacking her. But they will not be successful.  She knows the One she serves and will not be intimidated.

Back in the 1980s, I sensed that Israel’s little-known Benjamin Netanyahu was chosen by God for an important end-time role.  I still believe that.  I now have that same sense about Sarah Palin.

Today I did some checking and discovered that both her first and last names are biblical words, one in Hebrew the other in Greek:

SARAH.  Wife of Abraham and mother of Isaac.  In Hebrew, Sarah means “noble woman” (Strong’s 8283).

PALIN.  In Greek, the word means “renewal.” (Strong’s 3825).

Only God knows the future and how she may be used by Him, but may this noble woman serve to bring renewal in the land, and inspiration.

Jim Bramlett

There you have it from Father Jim - A vote for Palin is a vote for God.

And a lot of my friends, the same ones that email - and accept as truth - those baseless OBAMA SMEARS, may believe it all - hook, line, and sinker.

Barnum must be laughing in his grave.

The Devil is Divine

By Acharya S
Truth Be Known

Do you know where the word “devil” comes from? Do you know how the Devil was created? Yes, created, because that is precisely what has happened. As opposed to something real and set in stone that mankind has merely perceived, the Devil is a creation of man’s mind. Take, for example, the current impression of a man with horns and a pitchfork. This image is a compilation of characters from other mythologies, incorporating elements of the Greek god of nature Pan, for instance. What these statements mean is that the Devil is a not a real person of demonic nature running around the universe terrorizing people with “his” godlike but evil powers. Although there is evil in the cosmos--even Absolute Evil--the current construct that humans perceive as the Evil One is an anthropomorphic version based in mythology. True evil is not personal, not a single being. It is merely a quality that can be possessed by anyone.
The Origin of Evil

If you ask a believer the question, “If God is so good, why is there so much evil in the world?”, he or she will invariably answer, “Because of the Devil.” If you ask that believer, “Who created the Devil?”, he may then say that the Devil has always existed, not really wanting to ascribe such a malevolent creation to the all-good God. Of course, that eternal existence puts the Devil on par with God, who was the original being from which all creation comes. Well then, the faithful may say, the Devil was one of God’s creatures that “got away from him” or rebelled--the evil angel, as it were. But that nonetheless makes the Devil one of God’s creations, hardly a handiwork to be proud of. It also implies that God is not very powerful, in that “he” can lose control of “his” creatures so easily.
How Religions Are Made

In reality, the formed beings currently portrayed as both God and the Devil are creations of the human being, not vice versa. That this assertion is true can be shown quite simply by using as illustration the evolution of religion. So-called religion, as it turns out to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, is not a divine revelation from any god person who created everything and knows all. In actuality, “religion” is a construct that takes centuries and millennia to complete, beginning with various perceptions of the natural and “supernatural” worlds around us.

The first perception we have of the “supernatural hand of God” is elemental: the wind, the heat, the cold, the light, the dark, the rain, etc. Because the elements seem to have a mind of their own, human beings love to anthropomorphize them and give them human qualities. Thus, purely atmospheric phenomena come to be viewed as expressions of a humanlike entity with a mind of its own. We ascribe personality characteristics to the various entities we build up around the elements. For example, Zeus, the Greek sky-god father-figure, takes on a thunder-and-lighting personality.

This business is how “religion” evolves. Although “religious” fanatics may violently oppose this notion, all religion is basically mythology built upon limited human perceptions of what is in the universe, and not upon concrete and absolute truths. Absolute truth has no form; hence, whenever “God” is portrayed as having form, whether human or animal, male or female, black, white or polka-dotted, it is not the Truth.

In looking at religion, what we find around the globe is a core mythos based on atmospheric elements and planetary bodies or other natural forces with a variety of forms they take on. In places where the skin of the inhabitants is red, the god may have red skin, and where the skin is white, the god may have white skin, and so on. It is completely arbitrary and not based on actual fact.

What happens is that different groups of people--and there have been very many cultures and groups on this planet--bring their distinct interpretations of deity to each other, whether through friendly merger or violent conquest, the latter of which seems to be the norm. During this merger process, the predominant people will force their particular, ethnocentric, egocentric and gender-centric interpretation of deity upon the conquered peoples. At the same time, they will also either make the conquered deities into lesser gods, godmen, heroes or patriarchs in their own pantheon, or they will turn the conquered deity or deities into demons and devils.

The Origin of the Words “Demon” and “Devil”

In fact, the very words “demon” and “devil” have been vilified in just such a way. Before cultural judgment turned these words into something wholly other than their original meaning, both words represented entities that were considered sacred and holy. The word “devil” comes from the Sanskrit/Hindi word “deva,” which refers to the good angels of the Hindu pantheon. The root of both “devil” and “deva” means “divine.” It was only after Zoroaster and the Persians conquered Hindu territory that they felt compelled to make the Hindu gods into devils! Thus, the Hindu devas became the Persians devils. As Rev. George Cox says, in Mythology of the Aryan Nations (Longmans, 1870, pp. 355, 363):

“The Devas of the [Hindu] Veda are the bright gods who fight on the side of Indra; in the [Zoroastrian] Avesta the word has come to mean an evil spirit, and the Zoroastrian was bound to declare that he ceased to be a worshipper of the daevas…

“...the word devil passed into an immense number of forms, the Gothic tieval, diuval, diufal, the Icelandic djofull, Swedish djevful, all of them, together with the Italian, French, and Spanish forms carrying back the word diaboloV [diabolos] to the same root which furnished the Latin Divus, Djovis, and the Sanskrit deva.”

Likewise, the word “demon” comes from the Greek word “daimon” or “daemon,” which originally referred to beings of divine, godly nature--gods, not evil spirits. “Daemon” was also corrupted and changed into having a evil connotation through the same religion-making process. It had nothing to do with an accurate discernment of any genuine evil spirit. It was simply Christian propaganda used to brainwash the followers of the Greek and Roman religions into rejecting their old gods in favor of the newly created Christian character. As has been shown, this priestcraft is a very old trick. It was done rather well this time, with the subsequent burning of millions of books that would have revealed the ruse.
In God’s Name--Not the Devil’s

IN LIGHT OF THE FACT that so-called holy scriptures record one barbarous, murderous act after another attributed to “God,” it is not surprising that the “Devil” was once considered divine! Perhaps the Devil brings peace, and not a sword, to humanity. Considering how many people have been killed in the name of God and not the Devil, maybe the world is worshipping the wrong entity. Perhaps the Indians and the Greeks were right in the first place. Think about it: No army has ever marched off to war in the name of the Devil.
