From both accountings above, scripture clearly tells us that Yeshua was “led of the Spirit into the wilderness TO BE tempted“. The Father had prepared Him to withstand what the enemy had in store for Him and afforded Him the opportunity to be proven by this experience. Most have been taught and led to believe that demons are on the loose, on the rampage and are to be avoided at all costs lest we be devoured by them. While scripture does say that he lurks about as a roaring lion (1Peter 5:8 – click on highlighted words to view content), what is lacking in that teaching is the reality that when you are filled with the spirit of YaHoVeH, “the devils tremble” (James 2:19). In fact, scripture says that for those who have surrendered to the Father’s Purpose, temptation is merely an instrument in the Hands of YaHoVeH to temper us, to harden us and make us fit for His use in the Kingdom. If we are to follow in the footsteps of the Master, scripture says we can expect this same experience as a normal part of life abiding in ruach hakodesh. (Hebrew for “the holiness of spirit” – 1Peter 4:12-13, and see the Power In His Name).
The Gospel of John, Jesus’ seventh sign, part 9
These Greek proselytes had come to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of Passover. We are not told where they were from, but because John notes that Philip “was from Bethsaida of Galilee,” which was near Syria (which was Greek at the time), these proselytes may have lived near there. Whether they had known Philip previously or not, it appears that they identified with him, since Philip had a Greek name.
Philip’s Greek name means “lover of horses,” and Jesus (Ie-sus) is Hebrew, spelled in Greek letters, meaning Yah’s horse. The horse in those days was a symbol of salvation, especially in a military context where an army could be “saved by the cavalry.” Hence, God condemns Israel for depending on horses from Egypt (Isaiah 31:1), instead of relying on the God of Israel for their salvation (yeshua).
The Gospel of John, Jesus’ seventh sign, part 10
After Jesus talked about His impending death, his soul was disturbed, knowing that His time of suffering was drawing near. This was only to increase, culminating in Gethsemane just before His arrest. Perhaps the truth which He had just spoken, “He who loves his life will lose it,” was the cause of this inner conflict, for such is the case with all of us. It is one thing to proclaim a principle while it is untested, but quite another when one is faced with the experience itself.
Paths of Old – Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

Satanic Temple Approved to Hold Event at Pennsylvania High School — and Taxpayers Will Fund It
The Satanic Temple has been approved to hold an event at a Pennsylvania high school — and taxpayers will fund it.
The Northern York County School District said in a statement that they granted permission for “the Satanic Temple to use our facility as we were required to do so by Board policy No. 707.”
The event will be held on September 24 and, under the policy, the school district will be required to cover any rental, custodial, security and auditorium tech fees, local station WJAC reports.
“As a public school district, the use of our school facilities must be permitted without discrimination,” the school district’s statement continued. “We cannot and do not arbitrarily pick and choose which organization may or may not use our facilities. If we allow one organization, we must allow all organizations, provided they satisfy the conditions and application requirements as set forth in Policy 707.”
World Economic Forum Looks To Normalize Implanting Tracking Chips Into Humans
The latest highly controversial technology/policy that the World Economic Forum (WEF) has set out to normalize is the idea of implanting tracking chips into humans.
It wasn’t that long ago that those speculating on a future where this is happening would get dismissed as conspiracy theorists, but now the world elites’ most vocal outlet is predicting that chip implants will eventually become just a commodity.
And the WEF makes a case that implanting chips into children could be viewed by parents as a “solid, rational” move. All of this crops up in a blog post on the organization’s website dedicated to the future of augmented reality (AR), and what is referred to as “an augmented society.”
Big Shift In Church Attendance For Millennials As They Seek Something Real
A recent Barna Research report reveals that there is an uptick in millennials seeking out church post-pandemic. While just a few years ago this generation received the brunt of jokes and stereotypes embodying youthful naivete and a disdain for responsibility, Generation Y is now turning ages 25 through 40.
While some argue that with age comes maturity, this new study breaks down the effects of the pandemic as it pertains to millennials engaging in local worship.
The study reads, “Although millennials (and, emerging behind them, Gen Z) are known for declines in religiosity, data show that, since 2019, the percentage of millennials reporting weekly church attendance has increased from 21% to 39%.”
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 20)—RAHU’S RAGE
Moments before, over the incessant noise of the security alarm, Joe had shoved past the door and pulled Katherine into the hall. Now he looked at the guard who lay slouched on the floor. The man appeared to be unconscious. He stared down the corridor he’d followed earlier, then the opposite way.
“Cover your face,” he shouted as he pushed Katherine to one side.
He focused on the wall between the door trim and ceiling and raised his fist, bringing it down swiftly, smashing the hall camera lens with the ball of his hand so abruptly that it made Katherine cry out, “What are you doing!”
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 21)—FACE-TO-FACE WITH EVIL
Around the corner and down the hall from the service elevator, Joe and Katherine marched ahead of the Special Operations Forces soldier with their hands clasped on top of their heads. The warrior towered behind them like an oversized villain of an Arnold Schwarzenegger film. His exaggerated pectorals formed near-perfect rectangles against his black cotton shirt, while neatly pressed BDUs squeezed firmly around the remainder of his explicitly honed physique. The man could have been a poster boy for the Special Operation Forces, and from the way he maintained his finger on the M-249’s trigger, Joe had the feeling he was proud of his steroid-enhanced anatomy and was itching for a chance to use it.
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 22)—REMOTE VIEWING
Donald Pritchert counted to five and threw the main breaker back on. A second longer and the research facility’s emergency backup generator would have started, resulting in a dispatch of security and maintenance crews. His hope was that both departments would perceive the event as a temporary utility failure. Phobos would know better. The blinking lights were a predetermined signal. He had just enough time to safely depart any level of Montero and to exit the Nephilim Training Access Tunnel to the forest outside.
House Of Prayer Schools—Exposed As A Cult—Scammed Veterans Out Of $7 Million
A nonprofit organization called the House of Prayer, a chain of schools that students branded as a cult, has been accused of recruiting veterans and active service members and then bilking them out of more than $7 million in GI Bill benefits and disability checks to pay for Bible classes that were not accredited. In testimony on GI Bill modernization before the House Veterans Affairs Committee on Wednesday, William Hubbard, vice president for Veterans & Military Policy at Veterans Education Success, an advocacy group focused on advancing higher education success for service members, veterans and their families, said the House of Prayer’s abuse is proof that…
