Indoctrination + Media: Your mind is what you feed it - pt 1

Your time spent at work and your commute home is likely filled with tension, whether from office politics, your dealings with co-workers and/or customers, or from the traffic jam during rush hour.  When you finally get home, the first thing that you want to do is release the tension from your long day.  If the television set is the focal point of your "living" room, where you're supposed to spend some time "living" or being alive, your choice for releasing that tension is narrowed down to watching television.  This lifestyle was engineered a long time ago, in order to keep the enslaved masses compliant to the status quo, the way of the establishment.  It's really not a choice but a setup for an animal in a cage.  And if we rewind back to the traffic jam, you were still in a cage, a box on wheels, and your choice for releasing tension was narrowed down to the focal point of the dashboard, the radio/audio unit.

You think that most of your thoughts are your own.  You're right, but only partially, because once you've entertained and accepted externally motivated thoughts as your own, they indeed become your thoughts and, later, deeds.  You recognize that commercials are paid messages by large corporations and organizations.  But every second on television, including the news, can be bought with power and money.  Mainstream television (+online video/entertainment) is 24 hours of propaganda, marketing and indoctrination.  If watching television programs and movies is enjoyment to you, try thinking of it another way.  The drug addict thinks that the next hit, or high, is sheer pleasure.  The gambling addict feels that the next game, or potential win, is his thrill.  The junk food addict looks forward to the next sugary soda and bag of chips for comfort.  Your mind is what you feed it with and you'll gravitate towards the nourishment or malnourishment that you're used to consuming.  You have to unplug yourself from all forms of mainstream entertainment and most media, or you'll never come out of indoctrination.  Many of the people who argue against this stand are the same ones that refuse to unplug.

Romans 12:2  "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of GOD."

conformed = G4964. συσχηματίζω - suschēmatizō (soos-khay-mat-id'-zo). From G4862 and a derivative of G4976; to fashion alike, that is, conform to the same pattern (figuratively): - conform to, fashion self according to.

G4862. σύν - sun (soon) - A primary preposition denoting union; with or together (but much closer than G3326 or G3844), that is, by association, companionship, process, resemblance, possession, instrumentality, addition, etc.: - beside, with. In compounds it has similar applications, including completeness.

G4976. σχῆμα - schēma (skhay'-mah). From the alternate of G2192; a figure (as a mode or circumstance), that is, (by implication) external condition: - fashion.

Romans 12:3  "For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as GOD hath dealt to every man the measure of faith."

soberly = G4993. σωφρονέω - sōphroneō (so-fron-eh'-o). From G4998; to be of sound mind, that is, sane, (figuratively) moderate: - be in right mind, be sober (minded), soberly.

G4998. σώφρων - sōphrōn (so'-frone). From the base of G4982 and that of G5424; safe (sound) in mind, that is, self controlled (moderate as to opinion or passion): - discreet, sober, temperate.

Ecclesiasticus 31:21  "And if thou hast been forced to eat, arise, go forth, vomit, and thou shalt have rest."

People don't realize, in real terms, that your mind is what you feed it with.  Someone might say, “Well, I like television, but I don't allow it brainwash or influence me.”  Is that right?  If it doesn't influence you on a deeper level... why, then, do you watch it religiously?  Whenever you make the conscious choice to listen to or watch something, such as mainstream television, you're making a decision to absorb that information into your mind.  You can make excuses and call it what you want, like entertainment, but it's still feeding your mind.  If it's produced by some big corporation, with worldly credentials, you can bet that there's propaganda in it.  Propaganda influences and shapes the mind and your perception of reality.  It is part of the secret hand that promotes one worldism, conceals ulterior motives, guides democracy and controls the public mind.  If you believe it and go by it, welcome to the club, you've been accepted as someone with predictable opinions and actions.

The more you follow propaganda and the unwritten rules of the rat race, the easier your life might "appear" to become.  Write that long essay about political correctness, or gun control, and get the "A" from the university professor.  If you follow the rules (politics) in the workforce, you might earn a better job title, a bigger cubicle and a few award plaques to hang on its padded walls.  All of this can often occur after some 20 years of schooling and another decade of doing work that you don't enjoy.  The handlers, in this matrix, can make other areas of your life seem smoother, by giving you liberty with two political parties to vote for, plenty of choices on which food shows to watch, and you can even pay a subscription fee to have access to another hundred or so propaganda programs.  You allow them to sift the information of life for you, by telling you what's right, wrong, acceptable, etc.  You're no longer required to think and many of the choices that you make become trivial.  The majority of people in your life will never question what the system propagates... that's called indoctrination, friend.

You might think this all sounds crazy.  How can almost everybody be wrong... the majority rules, right?  Get out of that carnal mindset and think for a moment.  Just about everyone is chasing temporary things, even fighting; conspiring; coveting; envying and struggling over meaningless stuff... knowing very well that this life in the flesh passes quickly.  Being content and selling out are two very different things.  Selling out is not contentment; it's settling for satan's bargains.  Some folks sell high, while others sell low and cheap.  It might be for a mortgage, financial stability, fame or a little recognition/desirability.  What's at stake for holding on to those things more than holding on to The SAVIOR - purpose, direction and Eternal Life to look forward to with GOD.  The people of this world are just living for temporary gratification and consumption. 

The masses don't seek truth; they enjoy illusions.  Groupthink or crowdthink is dangerous.  Overcome indoctrination to mass media, especially mainstream television and news, with TRUTH.  Mass media is for the masses to tread in mediocrity.  It will only serve in making you the same as everyone else.  It will not help you realize your uniqueness, calling and purpose in life.  If you allow it, all of the different voices in this world will keep you from hearing the most important Voice - GOD speaking in your heart.  GOD made you unique, because there's no one else just like you - your DNA is different; your fingerprints are unique and your GOD-given gifts and skill set are truly custom, so no one's in contest of being you.  However, the world and it's indoctrination will pressure you into thinking otherwise. 

If this media stuff didn't have some control over your life, why is it so hard for you to give up television and entertainment for even one day?  Ask yourself, why?  One of the first steps towards recovery for an addict is for him to see and admit he's one.  If you feel that your life is mediocre, perform a little self examination.  Observe how you spend your free time, such as listening to silly music; playing video games; watching t.v. programs and movies; and watching/talking about athletes and celebrities (that don't even know, or care, you exist).  If you're thinking, acting and doing what everyone else is... guess what?  You're feeding your mind with the same things that are being fed to the masses... mediocrity and junk.  You are what you eat.  "And if thou hast been forced to eat, arise, go forth, vomit, and thou shalt have rest" (Ecclesiasticus 31:21).  There are manifold layers, or scales, of deception and lies, which run continuously through the systems of men.  The tools frequently utilized are indoctrination and tradition, because they can shape the mind.  Yes, traditions of men, especially in the religious system and culture, in order to keep people in the dark and void of TRUTH.

Romans 11:8-9  "(According as it is written, GOD hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:"

table = trapeza (trap'-ed-zah); A table or stool (as being four legged), usually for food (figuratively a meal); also a counter for money (figuratively a broker’s office for loans at interest): - bank, meat, table. (Strong's Concordance)

A table is for food, and in this case, it can mean meat or also a counter for money.  What you put on your table is food to feed and nourish your body.  The table represents your mind, so spiritual food is what you absorb into it.  Eating the wrong foods result in sickness and malnutrition.  Therefore, your own mind traps you, if you fill it with indoctrination, the ways of this world and the traditions of men. That table can also mean money and usury.  Eating the wrong foods and not eating the meat of GOD'S WORD is the main problem that we find in mainstream churches today.  Following the traditions of men, false doctrines and propaganda, that have no foundation in Truth, will lead you into satan's camp. 

GOD doesn't go around zapping people into a stupor or slumber.  They do it to themselves, by being respecters of persons, and believing the words of men over GOD'S WORD.  If you are not sealed with the TRUTH, the spirit of slumber (indoctrination and traditions) will rest upon you.  TRUTH will stand and the rest will fall.  The wise men, in the ways of the world, will be broken up and turned backward for lack of Truth.  

2 Corinthians 4:4  "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of GOD, should shine unto them."

Mark 7:13  "Making the Word of GOD of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye."

Colossians 2:8  "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."

Isa 44:24-25  "Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;"

Labeling all persons who question mainstream media as dangerous, unstable conspiracy theorists is also a form of indoctrination and mind control.  Indoctrinate (as defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary) = to teach (someone) to fully accept the ideas, opinions, and beliefs of a particular group and to not consider other ideas, opinions, and beliefs.  What does that tell you?  In fact, most people simply accept mainstream information as truth; they never question it.  How can a person not question or verify what any other person says?  Do you know any flesh man, walking the Earth at this moment, that has never lied?  Even a child, not long after he learns to walk and speak, will sometimes lie in innocence.  So how can a system, i.e. education/media, created by men be any different and demonstrate more honesty as a collective entity?  That's impossible for men.  It's likely that you don't fully trust any man/woman, not even those closest to you, so how can you trust the media.  They're not even on your side.   

There are people who just enjoying spewing off conspiracies, but they don't do their homework.  In order to verify, one must follow through with research, examination and discernment.  It's why truth can be dangerous in the wrong hands, especially when someone doesn't follow through, with study, and bases findings, thoughts and actions on small portions of truth, half-truths, so to speak.  A real Truther will always put in the time to do his own homework.  More importantly, a genuine Truther lays and builds his foundation of TRUTH on the WORD of GOD.  That is the difference.  Without CHRIST, without GOD'S LIVING WORD, you will not have a solid foundation to support the structure that you're trying to build.  TRUTH has an origin.

Ephesians 4:17-18  "This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of GOD through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:"

The Dynasty of Education and Media is indoctrination.  The day we start believing everything we watch and hear via the news and media, we have been successfully programmed.  When the citizens of our country leave the WORD of GOD, to embrace the words and doctrines of men and their systems as Gospel, the lips of a strange woman, Mystery Babylon, and her "shadow" nation of kenites soon take over.

Proverbs 14:15  "The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going." 
Proverbs 14:34  "Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."

Deuteronomy 28:33  "The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:"

If we cancel out media and entertainment, satan's world system will still have three and a half other dynasties to scrub our brain cells with.  Indoctrination runs in the veins of media, thus keeping the flow of lies and deceptions continuous among the masses.  The Four Hidden Dynasties are fueled by the kenites' lust for power and money as well as their rejection of ALMIGHTY GOD and our SAVIOR Jesus CHRIST.  The setup is simple.  The kenites will do whatever it takes to form a godless, one world government built on false peace and prosperity.  This one world form of government started in 1948 and is presently in progress.  But it will eventually fall apart from a deadly wound.  Satan will arrive pretending to be Messiah to set up a one world religious system as the solution.  The antichrist or "instead of" Christ, satan, will deceive the whole world into worshipping him as Messiah.  The serpent's babylon system of confusion is "on the air", meaning being broadcast at the present moment into the minds of men.

Ephesians 2:2  "Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:"

To a large extent, education, television programming and socialization are utilized for propaganda with the purpose of mass indoctrination.  It's not exclusive to communist nations.  In fact, propaganda is more sophisticated in democratic, or "free", nations, because it needs to be well hidden, resulting in acts/scripts that are done very professionally and convincingly.  Propaganda in television and education greatly influences culture.  If the majority of any population is watching and living a fabricated reality, through the same "airwaves" and systems, they are much more predictable and easier to manage.  So the training and indoctrination starts from birth and ends at death.  Kids get to watch television, because it keeps them still and their attentions occupied, while the parents are doing chores around the house, etc.  Television is the free babysitter (so we think) for both the young, old and everyone in-between.  Our elderly and retired folks, who are often less mobile and have more free time, take comfort in watching television at home. 

Television viewing is easy, when we're part of the audience and the only requirement is to sit and watch.  People don't like to study and practice diligence, unless it's for subjects related to money or upward mobility.  With everything else, we have simply allowed an invisible, shadow government to sift our information and data into more tapered scopes and choices.  Our lives appear complex and indoctrination does the filtering.  We've become too busy running the rat race and getting caught up with the cares of daily life, leaving our important thinking and decisions in the hands of our nation's leaders, mostly puppets of the puppet masters, the kenites (learn of them).

Be a watchman, and study GOD'S WORD, to understand the ulterior motives in the news and media, and stop watching mainstream television.  By increasing wisdom and knowledge in the WORD, with guidance from the Holy Spirit, you'll be able to predict the news and direction of propaganda more accurately.  And by understanding the conflict, between good and evil, and the game plan in this world, things will add up and everything will begin to tie together.  I kid you not. 

Proverbs 1:7  "The fear [reverence] of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."

As a watchman, you check the news to see prophecy unfold and things come to past exactly as written in His Letter.  We don't allow ourselves to be consumed by the news or propaganda.  We're able to predict it, through His WORD, and see it all unravel.  It's already been planned, haven't you read?

Everyone worships someone or something

"In the day-to-day trenches of adult life, there is actually no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And the compelling reason for maybe choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship--be it JC or Allah, be it YHWH or the Wiccan Mother Goddess, or the Four Noble Truths, or some inviolable set of ethical principles--is that pretty much anything else you worship will eat you alive. If you worship money and things, if they are where you tap real meaning in life, then you will never have enough, never feel you have enough. It's the truth. Worship your body and beauty and sexual allure and you will always feel ugly. And when time and age start showing, you will die a million deaths before they finally grieve you. On one level, we all know this stuff already. It's been codified as myths, proverbs, clichés, epigrams, parables; the skeleton of every great story. The whole trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness.  Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to numb you to your own fear. Worship your intellect, being seen as smart, you will end up feeling stupid, a fraud, always on the verge of being found out."

"And the so-called real world will not discourage you from operating on your default settings, because the so-called real world of men and money and power hums merrily along in a pool of fear and anger and frustration and craving and worship of self. Our own present culture has harnessed these forces in ways that have yielded extraordinary wealth and comfort and personal freedom. The freedom all to be lords of our tiny skull-sized kingdoms, alone at the centre of all creation. This kind of freedom has much to recommend it. But of course there are all different kinds of freedom, and the kind that is most precious you will not hear much talk about much in the great outside world of wanting and achieving.... The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day."

Wonderfully Made

Psalm 139:14  "I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well."

You might sometimes feel that...
You can't be all things to all people,
You can't do all things at once and equally well.
You can't do all things better than everyone else.

Because you need...
To find out who you are, and be that,
To decide what comes first, and do that,
To discover your strengths, and use them,
To learn not to compete with others.
Because no one else...
is in the contest of "being you".

Gradually, you will have learned...
To accept your own uniqueness,
To set priorities and make decisions.
To live with your limitations,
And you will find you are a most wonderful, unique person,
Created by GOD and for His pleasure.

The world has been deceived - I

In GOD'S WORD, the Holy Bible, where are the evil people?  Give an example of a story about good vs evil from Scripture.  Are they mostly terrorists, drug peddlers, gangsters or correctional inmates?  These are the same bad guys that the media's normally promoting with television shows, movies and in the news?  The answer is "No".

Have you ever been betrayed or suffered wrongdoing from someone that didn't even break a single criminal law (laws of the land) in doing so?  The answer is likely "yes".

Now how can that be?  The really clever ones pass laws as well as shape and bend them to suit their needs.  They also include leaders; teachers; politicians and business men... the kings, false prophets, lovers of mammon and pharisees of today.

Isaiah 29:15  "Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

Aren't you always looking downwards or side to side for evil doers?  That somehow they are poorer than you, inferior, less intelligent, or just "look" the part of being a bad person.  It's pretty silly to be afraid of the big bad wolf, because the really bad ones usually appear nothing like hungry, ravaging wolves.  The media and television will try to program you to have a very narrow perspective.  I guarantee you that if the only education and learning that you've received in your lifetime is through mainstream schools and universities; television, news, movies; and everything else that's prepackaged and spoon-fed to you... you, my friend, know very little or no more than the next guy.  Usually the good books are suppressed... you cannot obtain them through book stores or at your local public library.  Also, check out some history books from different countries and what you'll find is that every country has it's own version of history.  Now that's something to think about.

Ephesians 6:12  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Look up for evil.. they are likely above you in power, wealth status and intelligence.  Most of the evil that goes on today (for their is nothing new under the sun) happens at work, in church, in office buidings, and schools, etc.  The evil one spends a lot more time in the pulpits, then in correctional facilities or on street corners.  Take politicians and CEOs, for example, the majority of prison inmates are not comprised of them.  Evil... is found most active, subtle and deceptive within the four hidden dynasties: economics/commerce; politics/government; education/media; religion.  Look into it.

Stop making excuses for yourself, or for your friends or for the world.  You are either for GOD and the Lord Jesus CHRIST, or against Him, because there is nothing in-between.  GOD makes it easy for us... the TRUE Good Book is not suppressed.  It is the most printed Book in the world.  Yes, people will try to add or take away from the WORD with numerous editions and translations, but the Holy Bible (King James Version)... you should be able to obtain.  It is GOD'S Letter to you.  Study it sometimes and don't take any man's word for it, check it out for yourself.  Can you discern both good and evil, more so than the heathen?  Yes or no.

Hebrews 4:12  "For the Word of GOD is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
Hebrews 5:13-14  "For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.  But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."
"They were the homes of the four Ministries between which the entire apparatus of government was divided. The Ministry of Truth, which concerned itself with news, entertainment, education, and the fine arts. The Ministry of Peace, which concerned itself with war. The Ministry of Love, which maintained law and order. And the Ministry of Plenty, which was responsible for economic affairs. Their names, in Newspeak: Minitrue, Minipax, Miniluv, and Miniplenty." (1984)

Zechariah 1:18-19  "Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, these are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem."

Daniel 7:3:7  "And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns."

Abortion article - Molech

Everett said that a girl on the pill who thought she was ‘safe’ typically had sex more frequently than those not on the pill.

“That pill did not work, and we could accomplish our goal of 3-5 abortions between the ages of 13 and 18,” she said.

Everett said that if the sex-education was done correctly, then when the girl becomes pregnant, she believes she has only one real choice.

“She’s going to call our clinic because she’s been told we’re ‘pro-choice.’”

In order to sell as many abortions as possible, Everett trained her employees to lead the distraught callers towards abortion as the only possible solution.

Marriage is a Spiritual Contract

Many of you probably don't want to hear this, especially the single folks, but you think that being single is a license to sleep with anyone you want, until you've found the right person.  Of course, publicly, you might refer to it as "dating" or "going out", mainly because no one is permitted to assume it's physical, without coming across judgmental.  But people who have multiple sexual partners increase their risk for sexually transmitted diseases and certain cancers, later in life.  Also, premarital sex is associated with increased risks of divorce and depression.

In the Bible, the concept of "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" does not exist.  There were single individuals, widows, divorced, married and betrothed to be married.  Outside of that were adulterers, fornicators, sodomites, whores and whoremongers.  You get the picture.

Satan's world made up "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" in the modern era.  From there, unlawful sex outside of marriage spread based on the rules of men, not GOD.  In our FATHER's eyes, the act of sexual intercourse between a man and woman is the spiritual contract of marriage.

Some of the strongest bonds in relationships, whether in friendship or intimacy, are formed in young adulthood.  Promiscuity is not part of that equation, because it's not normal or healthy.  A healthy relationship of any kind is built, over time, on loyalty and trust.

Promiscuity is a form of sex addiction.  Just like a drug, there's a high, low, emptiness and search for another fix.  You cannot disconnect from sex, because it's never meaningless.  It's the closest union that you can experience with a person of the opposite sex, for it involves the heart, mind, spirit and flesh.  Natural sexual passion is balanced, while lust is unquenchable.  Lust controls a person and not the other way around.

Any sexual activity outside of a marriage (between a man and woman) is unlawful.  If you're in a monogamous sexual relationship with your partner, you're married to that person.  You can call him your "boyfriend", or her your "girlfriend", but the person is in fact your spouse.  Carnal people play by carnal rules, which change over time, but spiritual laws never change.  GOD's laws are perfect and they don't change for man.

A marriage certificate serves as an official secular record and concerns the laws of the land that you live in.  It's not much different than a birth, or death, certificate, for it's importance is limited to your flesh life in the world system.  But marriage is more spiritual than it is worldly.  It's recognition and status in the eyes of ALMIGHTY GOD is far greater in importance than what's recognized by men.

Sex outside marriage is never free, remember that.  When it's outside a true marriage, it always comes with a price.  So what we have today is millions of people that claim to be single (never married), by the laws of the land, but are actually married or have been married.  You cannot bend spiritual laws, it just doesn't work that way.  For example, if your country someday makes both homosexual marriage and abortion legal, it doesn't make them right.  A spiritual law does not change with man's law.  You can be doing something wrong, that is within the laws of your land, but it doesn't mean that it's no longer a sin and is right with GOD.

If a prostitute told you that her dream was to marry a good man, raise a family, live in a nice house with a white picket fence, etc, and be a housewife or have a normal career, what would you think?  Wouldn't she be giving a conficting message?  Because her path doesn't align with her dream and therefore the dream will be difficult, if not impossible, to attain going in her present direction.

People can have a tendency to make up the rules as they go along... you know, the boss that changes rules, within his (or her) company, seemingly day to day, so he doesn't look and sound like a hypocrite or liar to his employees.  Another fine example is the double standard or individuals, often in positions of power, that think the rules and laws that apply to everyone else don't apply to them... that they are above the law.  You can't make up the rules as you go along, especially when it hurts others.  You can't be double minded and stable at the same time.  Whether you lie to yourself or someone else, it's still a lie. 

The feeling you get after a break up from a sexual relationship... that feeling is divorce, not just break-up blues.  What you might be ignoring is your spirit telling you that something is wrong.  You might feel this strong sense of attachment to someone after sleeping with him, or her, or you automatically feel that you are together as a couple.  It might be an empty feeling inside, in which you try and resolve by sleeping with the next person.  What you fail to realize is the spiritual law and aspect of marriage.  When you sleep with a person, you have actually entered into a spiritual contract of marriage with that person.  This contract is actually more serious than a written one recognized by your state or country.

This contract is recognized by GOD Himself.  Look back on your experiences, and tell me there wasn't any form of consequence or problem as a result of casual sex, or just going from relationship to relationship.  You think it was a one night stand... you leave it at that and date and sleep with the next person you like.  Guess what?  You just divorced and remarried... wondering why there are problems in your life and you can't seem to find the right person?

You might believe that by not signing that piece of paper, the marriage certificate, you are free from commitment and marriage.  However, GOD's WORD states differently.

Genesis 2:24  "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."

Mark 10:6-8  "But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh."

1 Corinthians 6:16-18  "What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body."

So how does two become one flesh?  When they join together.  The offspring from the marriage is also one flesh, because children share the genes of their parents.  It does not state in GOD's WORD that Adam and Eve signed a piece of paper.  When Adam "knew Eve his wife", in GOD's eyes, they were married.  In Biblical times, when a man spreads his skirt over a woman, he's taken her as his wife.

Ruth 3:9  "And he said, Who art thou? And she answered, I am Ruth thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou art a near kinsman."

It's not uncommon to hear that you have to test things out or gain experience from having more relationships.  The only experience that you will be gaining is that of multiple divorces.  Life is short; we grow up and old rather quickly.  The more your relationship experiences (first date, first kiss and just about every experience that you share with a partner) are spread out among various partners, the less your experiences are concentrated with one person.  This is a fact because you certainly don't intend to fill in your spouse with many of those details.

Yes, there are people that will tell you that everything worked out for the better and they're happily married now, but it's not the case for everyone.  If you're not one of those fortunate people, it's not too late to change.  Ask GOD for help, guidance as well as the will and courage to make a permanent change.  Repent in Jesus Name and move forward.  That's the beauty of CHRISTianity... CHRIST forgives.  Put that area of your life, as well as every part of your life, in His loving Hands.  Have CHRIST, the LORD of your life, lead, help and point you in the right direction.  A soulmate is someone that GOD chose for you... not someone that came by chance.  Wouldn't you rather be with someone that your FATHER in Heaven chose just for you, than going from one relationship to another, hoping the next one is right?

You'll never find a perfect spouse or friend in this world, neither will you ever be a perfect spouse or friend to others.  Back in the 1980s and early 90s, the media dynasty heavily promoted songs and movies about love and friendships.  The hidden agenda was to promote the worship of relationships, such as lovers and best friends.  GOD was intentionally left out of the equation and true love was based on human relationships, instead of Christ.  People bought into the idea of searching for the perfect mate or friends, turning marriage and relationships, between people, into a religion.  A spouse, or the search for one, should not become an idol or person of worship.  You don't need a spouse to make your life complete, you need Jesus.  When you put any relationship, whether with a person or thing, before your relationship with GOD, you'll create a host of problems in your life.  Only Jesus is perfect and it requires a perfect person to fit the role of a perfect friend.  And if you're blessed with a spouse, don't expect your mate to be perfect, because you certainly aren't yourself.

On a deeper spiritual level,

Ephesians 5:28-32  "So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church."

The LORD JESUS CHRIST loves and protects His bride.  He will protect you because you are part of that body of CHRIST, called the Church.  Christ's love and care for you is as close as any man, or woman, who cares for their spouse.  Believe it because it's His Promise.

ALMIGHTY GOD married Jerusalem...

Ezekiel 16:8  "Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord God, and thou becamest mine."

A quote from the movie, Vanilla Sky, "Don't you know that when you sleep with someone, your body makes a promise whether you do or not!"

The Sanctuary of GOD - Refuge, Rock, Salvation

Matthew 6:19-21  "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Philippians 3:8-9  "Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:"

1 Timothy 6:5-11  "Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.  But godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content."

"But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness."

The Sanctuary of GOD - Our Refuge, Rock and Salvation

Worldly forms of refuge can come with a price but no guarantee. However, Godly refuge was paid for on the cross.  "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever" (Heb 13:8).  This a promise to you that GOD's WORD (CHRIST) never changes and there is nothing in this world that is as solid, true, pure and sure as our Rock and Salvation.  Learn to hear GOD's Voice by studying His Letter to you, the Bible.

The world is going to tell you in oh so many ways that you need to act secular, conform and go with the flow, because that's how things roll and how you get ahead... the way everyone seems to be doing it.  The world feels and even encourages that it's okay to put worldy success above GOD.  Even many so called Christians think that the ones with more worldly success are somehow more favored by our FATHER.  That's the wrong way of thinking and it shows just how caught up a person is in the ways of the world.  For a heathen, money can actually make matters worse.  Satan is subtle and extremely clever... if worldly wealth and comfort is enough to keep an individual from turning to GOD, thinking he doesn't need Him... then the enemy is successful.  That's not to say that you can't be successful and wealthy with GOD's blessings.

Everything of the world is temporary and to associate "great gain" with worldly things (awards, positions, material belongings, etc) is an illusion.  How is it truly gain if you cannot take it with you when you die?  Eventually, it will all deteriorate or transfer into another man's hands.  Everyday, as you make it your life's purpose to gain worldly riches and comfort, your physical body is getting older and your time is running out.  For example's sake, let's say you live another 30 years... start counting from today... that's less than 11,000 days.  It's not that long, is it?

You see, when you look at things through your spiritual eyes, you will see the reality of it all.  What are you chasing?  How many times will it take for you to learn that the more you chase that thing, the farther it gets away from you?  That's all part of the master deception and game.  Running after that piece of cheese, endlessly on a treadmill, spinning your wheels, with no real purpose besides the illusion of gain. So what kind of treasures do you want to build up? 

The evil one and those who eat out of his hands will repeatedly rub it in your face, through media, other folks or gossip, how worldly people get ahead and seem to prosper.  If you are standing outside of GOD's Sanctuary, you might be envious of the wicked and foolish, because you're not looking through a set of spiritual eyes, but with the flesh eyes.  Glory be to GOD our FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST, that you will see their end when you are in the Sanctuary of the HOLY ONE.

Psalm 73
73 Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.

2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.

3 For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

4 For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.

5 They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.

6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.

7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.

8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.

9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.

10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.

11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.

15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.

16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;

17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.

19 How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

20 As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.

22 So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.

23 Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.

24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

25 Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.

26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.

28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.

Pastor Arnold Murray

Jeremiah 23:4  "And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the LORD."

"Thank you Heavenly FATHER for sending us Pastor Murray to teach us Your WORD and utilizing him to help seal the minds of Your elect.  You blessed him with over 60 years of teaching and sharing Your TRUTH, the cup that runneth over, with Your children. We saw how his entire life was blessed by You, FATHER, and he set a fine example that there is only one way to live... and that's by loving and serving You and living in Your WORD.  Pastor Murray completed his mission and we will continue to press on to complete ours for Your Glory" - in JESUS Name.  Amen.

Letter below by: Long-Time Shepherd’s Chapel Student Steve Barwick

Most of you have probably heard by now that Pastor Arnold Murray passed away yesterday, apparently of a heart attack.

The Chapel has verified this information, and is asking people to relax, and take a deep breath, and praise Father for granting us such a shining example of faith, courage and service in the Word of God, for so long.

And I would add, to also pray that Dennis Murray be granted the faith, strength, courage and physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being to carry on in Arnold’s footsteps.  Perhaps Father will grant him the double-portion, as He did Elisha when Elijah was taken home. Regardless, we know Dennis will do a fine job.  Pray also for Father’s blessings on the crew at the Chapel, who keep everything running smoothly.

You will all remember from the Scriptures that when Moses was taken home by our heavenly Father, it was then time for the children of Israel to enter into the Promised Land under the direction of Joshua.  Think about that, for we have just been given a great benchmark in Arnold’s passing.

Arnold Murray was the “Moses” of our time.  I would advise you all to prepare yourselves -- mentally, physically, emotionally and most of all, spiritually -- for the journey that lies directly ahead.  That means staying firmly planted in our Father’s Word.  Arnold’s passing represents a “great shaking,” perhaps, for some.  But it is nothing compared to what is soon to come.  This is no time to be shaken, beloved.

Remember:  This is the 66th year of the planting of the fig tree in the Holy Land.  So expect much this year.

The Lord’s specific instructions to the children of Israel just before they were to enter the Promised Land were as follows:

Deut 31:6  "Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."

We may have lost our flesh “Moses” of the end times.  But we have not lost the faithful and courageous example he set for us.  And always remember, it is our heavenly Father that Arnold Murray ALWAYS taught us to look to for guidance and direction, not himself.

Father has shown us by example that when “Moses” was taken home, the children of Israel were not left without guidance and direction.  Our heavenly Father was with them every step of the way.  And He will be with us every step of the way in the journey ahead into the Promised Land of the Millennium teaching period.

As it is written in the verse above, “He it is that doth go with thee, He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”  Claim those promises, beloved.  They are yours for the taking, in Christ’s name.

Also, always keep in mind that the Lord’s instructions to Joshua (representing the elect Body of Jesus Christ of these end days), were as follows:

Deut 31:7  "And Moses called unto Joshua, and said unto him in the sight of all Israel, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou must go with this people unto the land which the LORD hath sworn unto their fathers to give them; and thou shalt cause them to inherit it."

Deut 31:8  "And the LORD, He it is that doth go before thee; He will be with thee, He will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed."

Take those words literally, and stand firm in them.  Claim them, in Christ’s name.  Be strong and of good courage.  Fear not.  Do not be dismayed.  For our job is to cause the people of Israel to inherit the land that’s been stolen from us.  That is the task that lies directly ahead -- a task that will be completed by our Lord and Savior at His Second Advent, which we now march forward to.

So as we march toward that soon-coming day, these are our instructions.  We do it God’s way, in accord with the Book.  Follow the Book.  Now, and after the antichrist arrives, when it is finally time for the election to be delivered up and for the Lord to speak through us at those trials, FOLLOW THE BOOK.  The Book says “Be strong and of good courage.”  The Book says “Fear not, nor be afraid of them.”

Let us never forget it.  Let us stand firmly in our Lord and Savior’s footsteps (“Take up your cross, and follow Me”).  And let us remain firmly rooted in His Word.  That is the legacy our dear Pastor Arnold Murray has left to us, just as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ left it to us.  Follow the path that’s already been blazed.  Make the wake others can follow in, by sticking with the straight-on truth of God’s Word.  All praise and glory to our heavenly Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Amen.

All that openeth the matrix is Mine

Exodus 34:19 "All that openeth the matrix is mine;"

Genesis 1:14  "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7  "Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto GOD who gave it."
Ezekiel 18:4  "Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

All that openeth the matrix is Mine

The first big clue as to how one really knows, if he's living in the matrix, lies in the universe.  Where does it begin and where does it end?  How were you birthed into this present world age?  Where were you before and where will you be afterwards?  Like virtual reality inside a computer, the universe has no end.

The matrix, or rechem, means womb.  You had to come through the water sac, or womb, into this flesh life.  Therefore, you were born through the matrix.  ALMIGHTY GOD said, "All that openeth the matrix is mine" and "Behold, all souls are mine", and so it is, your soul belongs to Him.  GOD would not put you through this flesh life and have you go at it alone.  But over many generations, from umbilical cord to umbilical cord, and mother to child, Jesus Christ's birth came through mother Eve's daughter, the virgin Mary.

The seedline of David goes all the way back to Seth and to his parents, Adam and Eve.  All of this was planned by GOD, even before the creation of this present world age that we live in and is documented in the Universe.  Modern astrology, as we know it today, is corrupt.  However, break it down to the earliest form and the Truth will reveal itself.  Virgo as explained by E.W. Bullinger in "The Witness of the Stars":

"VIRGO is represented as a woman with a branch in her right hand, and some ears of corn in her left hand. Thus giving a two-fold testimony of the Coming One.  The name of this sign in the Hebrew is Bethulah, which means a virgin, and in the Arabic a branch. The two words are connected, as in Latin--Virgo, which means a virgin; and virga, which means a branch (Vulg. Isa 11:1). Another name is Sunbul, Arabic, an ear of corn."
"In Genesis 3:15 she is presented only as a woman; but in later prophecies her nationality is defined as being of the stock of Israel, the seed of Abraham, the line of David; and, further, she is to be a virgin."

Before the Holy Bible, there were the stars and the universe.  Before the Old Testament was written, GOD did not leave Himself without a witness, for the WORD was written in the Heavens.  Conduct a little research and you'll find out for yourself.

In this flesh dimension, you operate your vehicle, your physical body, to move around and get things done.  Once the flesh expires, the silver cord parts and your soul returns to He that made you.  Yes, that's right and it makes perfect sense, unless you cling to some false idea that your ancestors were apes and the delicate balance and beauty of nature is contributed to some big bang event.  What is the main purpose of the system, or matrix, that exists in this world?  It is to distract you from the TRUTH (CHRIST JESUS).

If there is no TRUTH, there is no GOD.  If there was no TRUTH, then there wouldn't be any lies either.  So stop yourself the next time you accuse someone of lying, if you don't believe in TRUTH.  Therefore, to deny GOD is to deny TRUTH and vice versa.  To say it's subjective... then you should consider becoming a lawyer, if you're not already one.

Matthew 22:35-39  "Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy GOD with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

Deuteronomy 10:12  "And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy GOD, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy GOD with all thy heart and with all thy soul,"

The greatest commandment is to love the LORD thy GOD will all thy heart, soul and mind, through His only begotten Son, Jesus CHRIST.  TRUTH has an origin and the foundation must be built on the origin, for Jesus is the Living WORD.  If you deny TRUTH, you will never see or understand this. 

Just like your eyes can play tricks on your mind, your mind can play tricks on your eyes.  If this wasn't so, then every magician on the planet would be out of a job.  Your friend, so and so, who can never see what he's doing wrong... why can't he see it and how is it that you can?  With exceptions, of course, you both have eyes, don't you?  You cannot put your trust in the carnal mind and your physical eyes and ears.  The carnal mind cannot hear GOD'S Voice.
John 10:1-4  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice."

As you are reading this message, please take a moment and think... I'm talking to you right now, but you don't know my name and you've never seen me or heard my voice.  Yet, I'm able to convey to you my thoughts and share with you TRUTH.  The sheep know their Shepherd's Voice and it is only His Voice that they follow.  Through all of the noise in this mixed up world, who's voice speaks in your heart?  Do you even hear your own voice any more?  Yes, the little one inside your head (the spiritual you) that reminds you when you do something wrong... or do you listen to the other voice that always nags, complains and wants more?

My point is... there are many things that you know exist, but you've never seen them.  You know that there's oxygen in the room right now, because you're still alive and breathing.  You probably believe in the saying, "what goes around comes around", or you might even believe in something called luck.  Now, friend, which of these things have you seen? 

Matthew 7:7-8  "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened."
John 1:1  "In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD."

John 1:14  "And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as of the Only Begotten of the FATHER,) full of Grace and Truth."

John 14:6  "Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the FATHER, but by me."

Romans 12:2  "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of GOD."

The WORD of GOD is the key to unlocking TRUTH... it is so simple.  The WORD, FATHER'S Letter to you, is the one tangible thing in this world that reveals TRUTH - JESUS CHRIST - it is physically tangible - you can hear; see; touch; read - absorb it.  It is GOD'S Voice... it reaches from the spiritual realm into this physical dimension.  JESUS CHRIST manifested in written form is the HOLY BIBLE, for JESUS is the LIVING WORD.  The HOLY BIBLE is the most printed book on this planet, yet few study it (very ironic).  Faith is not blind.  It is taking the first step towards TRUTH - you must seek it in order to find it.  How are you going to find it, if you don't even look or care?

CHRIST Sacred Music: Miserere mei, Deus

Miserere mei, Deus - allegri

 King James Version (KJV)

51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
