Justin Martyr is among the various men listed in the Roman Catholic system as the “Early Church Fathers”. This simply means that they have recognized him as a key figure in the development of the Christian faith after the Apostolic era. Martyr lived in the second century and was part of the division of early Gentile Christians who began to deviate from the Hebraic faith of the first century Believers.
Among Martyr’s written record is a piece titled Dialogue With Trypho where conversation between himself and a Jew by the name of Trypho is documented. Martyr’s goal seems to be to persuade Trypho the Jew to accept the Christian faith that, by this time in history, had already begun rejecting many of the commandments of Torah that Gentiles were not very familiar with. In the discussion, Trypho makes the following remark…
Kingdom vision, part 5
The story of Absalom’s attempt to replace David as the anointed one on the throne set the overall pattern of the New Testament conflict between the “Son of David,” Jesus Christ, the true Anointed One, and the chief priests led by Caiaphas, the usurper of the throne of David.
Kingdom vision, part 6
As the Creator of all things, God claims the right to empower anyone He pleases according to the pleasure of His own will. In other words, He will give the Dominion Mandate to whoever He wishes, and the kings of Judah should not think that this Mandate is theirs unconditionally.
Hosea Chapters 3 through 5
Last week, discussing Hosea chapters 1 and 2, I think that the primary lesson was summed up in the idea that the children of Israel are a nation of whores, and a whore as a nation, because they sought intercourse in commerce with all of the other nations, which they had been commanded to remain separate from. This is seen near the beginning of Hosea chapter 2, where it says…
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)

HARBINGER OF RAGNAROK-APOPHIS COULD IMPACT EARTH AT 61,000 MPH EARLY NEXT YEAR ON MARCH 11, 2023!
NASA has warned an asteroid the size of Nelson’s Column is in danger of colliding with Earth three years from now. Due the asteroid’s size and trajectory, Earth’s atmosphere may be unable to stop the space rock from causing an impact event. NASA asteroid trackers have dubbed the potenially dangerous asteroid as 2005 ED224. According to the data collected by Sentry on 2005 ED224, this asteroid could be travelling at an average speed of approximate 61,000mph (98,300kmh). The system also notes the asteroid measures about 177ft (54m) across. As a member of the Apollo family of asteroids, 2005 ED224 follows a very dangerous orbit. According to Sentry, the asteroid’s earliest possible impact could occur next year on March 11, 2023.
Dangerous, Demonic, And Entirely Unbiblical: A Deep Dive Into The Enneagram
The blind and spiritually misinformed hypotheses of the Enneagram are dangerous, deceitful, and antithetical to Christianity. Unfortunately, many in the Church have been drawn into this doctrine of demons—I do not use that phrase lightly. It is one of many last days deceptions leading believers away from the Gospel, the Bible, and Christ and into searching for humanistic or mystical understandings of who we are instead of what God’s Word clearly says. There is ample evidence available on the Enneagram’s true history. Even a modest internet search would uncover that the Enneagram has roots in…
The Surveillance State Is Making a List and You're On It
You’d better watch out–you’d better not pout–you’d better not cry–‘cos I’m telling you why: this Christmas, it’s the Surveillance State that’s making a list and checking it twice, and it won’t matter whether you’ve been bad or good.
You’ll be on this list whether you like it or not.
Mass surveillance is the Deep State’s version of a “gift” that keeps on giving…back to the Deep State.
Shocking Hypocrisy Of U.S. Libraries That Block Christian Book
As far as dramas go, America’s library wars have all the makings of a good Hollywood script. But unfortunately for actor Kirk Cameron, there’s nothing fictional about it. The “Growing Pains” star is the latest parent to do battle with the country’s woke book lenders after 50 locations opened their doors to drag queens — only to slam them in the face of Christians. If the libraries he contacted about a book reading won’t reconsider, Cameron has a message for them: welcome me to your library or see you in court.
'After School Satan Club' Is Latest in Growing Trend Of Overt Satanic Displays
News of a Satanic temple attempting to start an after-school club for children on school property in Virginia is the latest in a rising pattern of public activity by groups that openly identify as followers of Satan.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that The Satanic Temple in Chesapeake, Va. had been approved to use a room on B.M. Williams Primary School property for an “After School Satan Club” (ASSC). But after one of the parent sponsors removed their name from the application, Superintendent Dr. Jared Cotton announced that the temple’s “approval for building use has been canceled.” ASSC organizers later told reporters that they planned on resubmitting the application with a new sponsor.
Strategic infiltration of the minds of one third of humanity
After fifteen years of intense research, I would like to present to you an in depth evidence report that reveals how severely one third of humanity has been infiltrated by the elites, to make sure they would not oppose the planned world tyranny. In the 19th century the financial elites (Rothschild & co) began strategizing for world domination, and decided they had to make sure that all of Christianity – almost one third of the world population – would not oppose them.
Enlisting Doctors As Evangelists To Preach The Gospel Of Transgenderism
Dr. Rachel Levine, a man who identifies as a woman, tried to enlist children’s doctors and nurses into the transgender activist movement, urging them to become evangelists and preach the gospel of transgenderism. Anything less would be a betrayal of their profession and science itself, he argued.
Levine, assistant secretary of health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, claimed that there is a large population of biological males who are really female and vice versa, and these people are likely to commit suicide unless doctors pump them with drugs to delay puberty, introduce a hormone disease into their bodies, and perhaps even remove healthy body parts.
Levine, who graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine, further said that opposition to this “treatment” represents a hateful attack on science and compassion, one that all good doctors must condemn as damnable heresy.
Jacques Ellul And The Idols Of Transhumanism: Welcome The New (Old) Religion For A New Age
Although there are some religiously inclined transhumanists, like Ray Kurzweil or sociologist James J. Hughes [featured in Dr. Thomas Horn’s award-winning documentary INHUMAN], transhumanism is basically a secular movement. Yet it has been characterized—and I think fairly—as a form of “secularist faith,” since it promotes a vision of the “good life” and “pious” practices similar to those taught by traditional religions, although…
MYSTERY: Hundreds Of Mummies And Pyramid Of Unknown Queen Unearthed Near King Tut’s tomb
Just a stone’s throw from King Tut’s tomb, archaeologists have unearthed the pyramid of a never-before known ancient Egyptian queen; a cache of coffins, mummies and artifacts; and a series of interconnected tunnels. Buried within these shafts, archaeologists found a “huge limestone sarcophagus” along with “300 beautiful coffins from the New Kingdom period,” Hawass said. “Burials from the New Kingdom were not known to be common in the area before…
The Top Ten Bible Prophecy Stories Of 2022
Reflecting back on 2022, I found myself in the same yearly predicament. How do we select ten top stories of the year when, in reality, there were one hundred ten prominent happenings during the year as the last days wind down? Let me share some that I feel are worth discussing. All of them have prophetic implications.
1. The Rise of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Cabal and their Rush to Global Government
Ten years ago, had you heard of Klaus Schwab? How about Yuval Noah Harari? Were you tracking them even five years ago? Of course not. Today many are aware of this crowd and their one-world intentions. A lot of our readers understand this is the true shadow government. Revelation 13 outlines their scheme well.
2. The Stirring Up of the Spirit of the Antichrist
We all see the new lawlessness and rebellion in every aspect of society! Its current overdrive was sparked in my hometown, Minneapolis, in May, 2020 with the George Floyd ordeal. Now police forces are reduced, criminals face no bail, and prosecutors encourage more lawlessness. But the spirit of the Antichrist is everywhere–in our government, in our schools, and more. It is priming the pump for the real Antichrist.
THE GLOBALIST PLOT FOR TRANSHUMANISM AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST
Pay close attention to this quote from a speech by Aldous Huxley, a philosopher and author, at the California Medical School in 1961: “There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by…
PASTOR SAYS STAGE IS BEING SET FOR CASHLESS 666 SYSTEM: Federal Reserve, Major Banks Launch ‘Digital Dollar’
Is a new “digital dollar” project from the Federal Reserve and several of the world’s biggest banks another leap forward in Bible prophecy? Does the introduction of digital currency portend a biblical moment? Quite possibly, according to Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Southern California. “The Bible does tell us in Revelation Chapter 13 that there will come a time where a global economic system is digitized, that all those who participate in a global economy will need to do so with what we would call a prefix, meaning a number that is the head of an account,” Hibbs told The Christian Post. “That number, the Bible is very clear about. That number says that your account will be preempted by the number 666, that famous number that people always wonder about and make mention that it’s Satan’s number…
GOG-MAGOG RISING: Putin ‘Readies Nuke Missile 12 Times More Destructive Than The Atomic Bomb Dropped On Hiroshima’ To Strike The West
VLADIMIR Putin has renewed his nuke threat against the West by appearing to ready a nuclear missile for launch. Footage shows a huge Russian Yars rocket able to hit the UK and the US being loaded into a silo at a base near Moscow. The intercontinental ballistic missile has a 7,500 mile range and when nuclear-armed is reportedly 12 times more destructive than the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It was seen in Russian propaganda being installed in a launch-pad using a special transport and loading unit – but…
AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH: Scientists And Technologists Reimagining Food, Farming And Humanity For Ecomodernism’s Dystopia
In 2017, the then Monsanto Chief Technology Officer Robb Fraley argued that his company made a mistake in not reaching out to the public about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) when they first appeared on the market in the 1990s. He felt consumers had been unduly swayed by an anti-GMO movement and the industry got its PR campaign wrong first time around. Fraley said the industry and universities currently involved in rolling out genome editing technology have done a much more extensive communication to both the public and key regulatory and policy makers. The industry’s message is that gene editing can precisely delete and insert genes in an organism’s DNA and presents no risks. However, there is sufficient research indicating that the technology is error prone, the effects of editing are…
Euphrates River Drying Up: Fulfilling The Book Of Revelation And Jeremiah’s Prophecy?
The region, once known as the Fertile Crescent, is on the verge of a food crisis as the main sources of water disappear. Officials struggle to cope as a prophetic scenario appears. Iraqi officials are reporting that for three consecutive years, the rainy season has begun later and ended sooner than the historic norm. This has been coupled with less water flowing through its two main rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates. The region has also been plagued by ongoing conflict. Both Christian and Muslim eschatology include prophecies of…
