Sorry, I was indeed being mean!
But I hear so many opinions from folks who should be sticking to simple things and not trying to interpret things that are themselves lies,
distortions, or confusions that have been evolving for hundred, if not thousands of years.
Our Christian Religion didn't just suddenly appear. It is the result of far more ancient religions, they included the Concepts of many ancient
nations and peoples. That is how they knew Jesus was somthing special, they were told of him and those like him by many other ancient faiths.
Egypt was more than the story of Moses. The concept of Ressurection, Heaven, and the judgement of souls CAME from Egypt. It is fabulously old.
The truths and ideas that came from the virtuous sages of Egypt heavily influenced the Hebrews, remember, they were once part of the Egpytian nation.
Child, your religion come out from Egypt! Don't be so narrow minded and silly when it comes to how you look at other nations.
There was another prototype of our faith, and it came from Persia. It was a man named Zoroaster (Zarathustra - means "Yellow Camel") who received a
revelation from the Lord of Light and Truth, who revealed to him that idol worship was evil, and taught him of the war between good and evil, the
angels and the "devs", which we would call demons. He prophicied that one would come called Saoshyant, who was a blazing angel of power and
judgment. The three "wise men" were Zoroastrians, but they don't teach you that in sunday school. That's what Magi are. They thought that Jesus
was this great King called Saoshyant, and that's why they honored him, and why Herod feared his birth.
You may also think, if you are typical "Christians" that the religions of India and of the Hindu, are all demonic and idolatrous. Did you know that
they too revere a Supreme God, who is called By three different names, And that this is the basis for the Christian Trinue God?
These things were not invented by the Hebrews. The Hebrew God of Old is very different than the one you learned in Sunday School. You are not
Jews, you are Gentiles, so don't confuse yourselves with the religion of foriegners. Why then, if you are not Jews, do you throw the old
testament around as your laws? If you are not a Jew, then the Old testament is just a history lesson, and a moral lesson, and if you imagine the
covenants of David to apply to you then you are deluded and taught wrong by your ministers.
If you are Christian, you are under Christ's new coventant, which is better for you. So stop quoting Leviticus, and the Kings, and the Judges, and
all that stuff. You are not Jewish, kids. Nothing is as silly to me as a "christian" hating this group or that group, and citing the laws of the
Jews. That's what hung Jesus (Who was called "Yeoshua") in the first place, all these men who were wise in their own conceit, and violence was in
their mouths. I will ask you one question: Do you resemble the persecuted, or the persecutors? Do you smite one another, yet call yourself after
the Lamb of God? Shame on you!
Grow in wisdom, kids, that is what I should have said with you in the beginning. There is much to learn about your own faith, and your teachers never
taught you these things in order to keep you under their control, and in their "flock". If you want to follow these men, then feel free. If you
wish to follow Jesus, and inherit everything, then learn what I have to say.
Jesus did not teach submission, he taught wise judgment. He taught freedom from sin, and Liberty, and he encouraged the free expression of all. He
was compassionate, and did not condemn anyone. He taught others to BE LIKE HIM, He did not say, only I will judge, only I am wise, but said, be wise,
and be like me, and be free, and inherit the kingdom as equals and brothers. Perfection was what he taught, and it is attainable for you.
Those who teach you not to judge things are you enemy, and seek to control you by fear and submission.
Those who teach you that it is impossible to be perfect, are evil men, and wolves, and seek to govern you by shame and sin. They steal from the flock
of Jesus and add to their own, and in the end both are destroyed.
Jesus was not about destroying the other religions, he was about perfecting humanity, and providing him a system government and morality, one based on
freedom and reason, and by the divine spirit.
Stop being rude and ignorant kids. Stop watching TV all the time. Stop teaching your kids to love the things of this world, and to want stuff all
the time. That is what you need to work on, then maybe you can learn the real good stuff.
Christians, our enemies are surrounding us, they are in our workplace, our neighborhoods, our schools, and our governments. They are the ones we were
warned about, the sevants of the devil who claim to be Jews, Christians, etc, but inside are raving wolves, who love the powers of darkness and the
power of spiritual control over each other, and those are the ones who swallow the entire wrath of God without mixture. These are the forces of
darkness, the wolves that surrounded Jesus too in his day, for these are the forces that have ruled the world for a long time. Are you one of them?
I will know if you are.
As far as the prophecy of the Man Child goes, it sounds more like the stories from India, who maintain that various manifestations of gods appear from
time to time. The principal of these was Vishnu, who was the preserver, and a close allegory of Christ, they both come to men to preserve the order
of establishment, and to reform the men from evil.
The man child IS NOT JESUS. Christians have made this error for hundreds of years. And they are rather stubborn about this, but they need to read
the passage a little better. The man child is born in the world of the last time, while the "beast" is ruling the world and plunging it into evil.
He is a savior figure, the Heir of Christ, who receives the Spirit of Christ. Perhaps this is what the second coming really is, perhaps it is not,
mortal men do not know.
But by careful reading you can easily tell that this man child is a boy born while these other events are happening, it is not a recounting of the
birth of Jesus. Did a flood of evil pursue Jesus only to be swallowed up by the earth? Nay, but it is another one, who is from the same place Jesus
was, in the same tradition of all the Avatars, Aspentas, and Great Ones ever to appear on the earth.
Jesus may very well return to the earth, not a little child "caught up to God" but as a great and powerful Spirit of God. So why do you still make
the mistake of considering the man-child to be Jesus? It is another servant of God, a very real ruler of the World and all its nations, just like the
book says. Look forward to such a one with faith and hope, He will be your leader in very near times.
I challenge you to reason with yourselves and to analyse the writing of the book of revelations a little better. You will at once become wiser than
the false teachers of Christianity who have kept you in the darkness concerning this marvellous prophecy.
