To answer the question as simply as possible... yes.
But to understand how is to begin to "see" spiritually, and God willing, it can begin a work in the mind of the one choosing to understand.
I will only focus on Jesus Christ's death and the subsequent events to keep the understanding as simple as possible.
The Jesus Christ you see in churches today, the one weakly hanging on a cross, with long hair IS NOT THE TRUE JESUS CHRIST. The golden crucifix and
the image displayed on it worn by so many Christians today is a complete lie. The Greek word used in scripture numerous times when describing Jesus
Christ's death regarding the device with which he was put to death is Stauros. It translates completely as "wooden pole, stake, upright wooden
stick" it is not and never was the word used to describe a "cross" or "two pieces of wood crossed", there is already a completely different Greek
word for "cross" and it was not the one recorded.
Why would Satan want mankind to ware golden crosses around their necks? Why make a "sign" of the cross when praying. Where did the "cross" as a
religious symbol originate?
Egypt. More specifically in Egyptian sun god worship, which has its origin in the post flood Babel.
Throughout the ages this sun god worshiping religious concepts were scattered to different parts of the world when the languages were confounded at
the destruction of the Tower of Babel. The same 'god' trinity used in sun god worship (father sky, mother earth and the son/Sun) was suddenly
translated and interpreted in 70 ways. When you study pagan religions you will find remarkable similarities among the various cultures that worship
in this manner.
The one consistency among the sun god worshipping cultures was to worship the Sun on Sunday, the 1st day of the week named after the Sun.
Some examples of the cultures which have this 'trinity' and base their origin in Sun god worship are:
- Egypt (Osiris, Isis, Horus)
- Babylon (Murduk, Easter, Balus)
- Assyria (Baal, Asteroth, Maloch)
- Greek (Zeus, Hera, Apollo)
- Rome (Jupiter, Juno, Apollo)
- Nordic (Odin, Freya, Baldur)
So how did these concepts which are clearly rooted in Sun god worship (cross, gold, trinity, Sunday worship) become associated with Christianity? Why
when Jesus Christ did not wear golden symbols around his neck, nor value gold, nor worship a trinity of gods (One God, the Father) nor worship God on
The book of Acts begins the story of the hijacking, and the Counsel of Nicaea in 321AD completes it.
Simon Magnus (Simon the magician/wizard) was a Roman Pagan high priest living in Galilee during the beginning years of the young church, he saw Peter
working miracles and performing the "laying on of hands" ceremony (required for the receiving of God Holy spirit in the mind of one called out).
Acts records him as approaching Peter and requesting the secret behind how he can give the Holy Spirit to other (not understanding it is God who gives
His spirit though the minister, not any power Peter had of himself).
Peter rebuked Simon Magnus, called him the son of the devil and cast him out of the presence of God's people. But Simon Magnus' story did not end
At the time of the early church the Roman pagan sun god worshipping religion had its seat in Rome of course. The head of the Roman pagan church was
called Patar (father of fathers in Latin) Simon Magnus a few years after his encounter with Peter the apostle ascended to the position of Patar of
Rome; he became known as Simon Patar of Rome.
Years later at the counsel of Nicaea in 321AD, the Roman Universal Church (Catholic) used the image of Simon Patar of Rome and placed his statue right
across from their pagan obelisk at the center of power. They claimed he was Simon Peter the apostle, and the first true Pope (father of fathers =
same word meaning as Patar) of "chirstianity". At that same counsel they destroyed the need to keep the Passover (required of all God's people)
and replaced it with Easter; pagan fertility holiday (rabbits, eggs, fish on Friday/Freyasday), they establish a "chirstsmas" holiday as a front
for the ancient pagan winter solstice festival (Evergreen tree covered in gold, wreath on the door, mistletoe, Santa and his 8 reindeer as opposed to
Odin and his 8 legged reindeer blessing good kids with gold and bad kids with coal). They destroyed the 7th day Sabbath that Jesus Christ kept
faithfully with Sunday, the day of the Sun god. They took the ancient symbol for the sun a "cross" and placed the false image of Jesus Christ upon
it in gold as a thing of worship.
Then they killed anyone who disagreed with their counsel decisions as "heretics".
The true Jesus Christ had short hair, it would have been sin for him to have long hair; only nazerite jews were aloud long hair during their service
in the temple, they could not cut their hair, nor eat anything that comes from a grape (wine, vinegar etc.). Jesus Christ drank wine, therefore he
couldn't be a nazarite jew or he would have been found guilty of sin. He was a strong man, a carpenter who worked hard for a living prior to his
ministry; had survive the cat-tail lashes due to his strength, most would have died. And last he died on a stake/pole/stick, in a straight up
position, with both hands above his head and both feet below and a single nine inch nail for both hands and one for both feet (2 total).
That is the true image of Christ at his death. The false image worshipped today is not true and came through the hijacking of God's truth
established by and through Jesus Christ by mankind as influenced by Satan.
Remember the words:
"There is One God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth" - Jesus
"Remember the Sabbath Day (7th day) to keep it Holy" - Jesus
"Thou shall not worship any graven image, nor anything that is on the Earth nor in heaven" - God
"Call no man father/patar/pope, for you have but one Father, the Almighty in heaven" - Jesus
"Keep Holy the Sabbaths of the Eternal (weekly and annually), they are a sign forever that you are my children and I am your God" - God
What is the manner we should judge those wanting to join in the faith?
"If a man comes in my name, but keeps not the commandments of God, he is a liar and the spirit of truth is not in him" - Jesus
