The Lion King pt 4 - (a living dog is better than a dead lion)

Ecclesiastes 9:4  "For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion."

The real story in the Garden of Eden isn't about some talking snake deceiving newly weds into eating sinful apples.  That wouldn't be a reality but a fable.  Faith has absolutely nothing to do with believing in fables.  Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life.  He never promoted the systems of men or their doctrines.  The precepts of men keep people in bondage but the Truth makes you free.  It's utter nonsense to cling onto fables, and clearly shows the extreme level of indoctrination, occurring in mainstream Christianity.  It's the belief of the systems of men and their traditions and fables over GOD's WORD.  Most Christians who buy into to the doctrines of men, and devils, are caught up in the ways and wisdom of this world.  They never see past the illusions and hypocrisies within their own minds, rendering themselves neutral and lukewarm as soldiers in the battlefield.  They respect persons in judgment and judge by the appearance, judging not righteous judgment, but hypocritical judgment.  All of the leaders that they accept, choose or vote into religious, political, financial and educational offices will be the wrong leaders and shepherds.  Moffatt translates 2 Timothy 4:3-4 as:

2 Timothy 4:3  "For the time will come when people will decline to be taught sound doctrine and will accumulate teachers to suit themselves and tickle their own fancies;"

2 Timothy 4:4  "They will give up listening to the Truth and turn to myths."

myths = G3454. muthos (moo'-thos) - Perhaps from the same as G3453 (through the idea of tuition); a tale, that is, fiction (“myth”): - fable.

G3453. mueō (moo-eh'-o) - From the base of G3466; to initiate, that is, (by implication) to teach: - instruct.

G3466. mustērion (moos-tay'-ree-on) - From a derivative of μύω muō (to shut the mouth); a secret or “mystery” (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites): - mystery.

Those under the spirit of slumber will turn to fiction and become initiated, or indoctrinated, into satan's counterfeit religion, which is another gospel, another jesus.  The indoctrinated will praise the new world order and it's leaders, and call them saviors.  It's the backwards world that we live in, where money, recognition and status equate worthiness.  The masses will give up all of their freedoms for the illusion of unity, equality, financial stability and protection from terrorism.  The double-mindedness and hypocrisy of religious men will lead to the great apostasy in the end times.  Restoring a state of Israel, one that is geographic and physical, and spiritually demonic, is not a Christian but an antichrist cause.  If you're a Christian, yet you align yourself with Christ-hating people, does that make you single-minded or double-minded?

People perish spiritually due to lack of knowledge in our FATHER's Word.  The belief of one myth allows more through the doors of the mind, even seven more wicked than the original, and the last state of that man is worse than the first.  Without knowing that Cain was a result of the sexual union between satan and Eve, a Christian will easily turn to myths.  If you've been taught error for most of your life in church, you're malnourished, but it doesn't mean you're not a Christian.  Feeling discomfort or cognitive dissonance is due to the unstableness in your mind from the doctrines of devils.  Swallow your pride, experience humility, and come into the Kingdom of GOD as a little child, for a child's mind is open, an indoctrinated mind is closed.  Get into the meat of the Word.

A living dog is better than a dead lion.  It might also be better to be a living heathen than a carnal, spiritually asleep, so-called religious Christian, who doesn't know up from down.  Truth be told, many Christians lack spiritual discernment, good ol' common sense and critical thinking skills.  They don't know when to view something literally or when to understand it figuratively.  From years of indoctrination and conditioning, they've mixed man's word, science fiction and fables into their understanding of the Holy Scriptures.  And a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.

"It may be asked, “How are we to know, then, when words are to be taken in their simple, original form (i.e., literally), and when they are to be taken in some other and peculiar form (i.e., as a Figure)?” The answer is that, whenever and wherever it is possible, the words of Scripture are to be understood literally, but when a statement appears to be contrary to our experience, or to known fact, or revealed truth; or seems to be at variance with the general teaching of the Scriptures, then we may reasonably expect that some figure is employed. And as it is employed only to call our attention to some specially designed emphasis, we are at once bound to diligently examine the figure for the purpose of discovering and learning the truth that is thus emphasized."

"From non-attention to these Figures, translators have made blunders as serious as they are foolish. Sometimes they have translated the figure literally, totally ignoring its existence; sometimes they have taken it fully into account, and have translated, not according to the letter, but according to the spirit; sometimes they have taken literal words and translated them figuratively. Commentators and interpreters, from inattention to the figures, have been led astray from the real meaning of many important passages of God’s Word; while ignorance of them has been the fruitful parent of error and false doctrine. It may be truly said that most of the gigantic errors of Rome, as well as the erroneous and conflicting views of the Lord’s People, have their root and source, either in figuratively explaining away passages which should be taken literally, or in taking literally what has been thrown into a peculiar form or Figure of language: thus, not only falling into error, but losing the express teaching, and missing the special emphasis which the particular Figure was designed to impart to them."

"This is an additional reason for using greater exactitude and care when we are dealing with the words of God. Man’s words are scarcely worthy of such study. Man uses figures, but often at random and often in ignorance or in error. But “the words of the Lord are pure words.” All His works are perfect, and when the Holy Spirit takes up and uses human words, He does so, we may be sure, with unerring accuracy, infinite wisdom, and perfect beauty. We may well, therefore, give all our attention to “the words which the Holy Ghost teacheth” (Bullinger).

Mainstream Christianity refers to many of the real truths in GOD's Word as false doctrines.  They often takes what's figurative in the Word as literal and what's literal as figurative.  They look at Adam and Eve as mythical creatures who committed mythical sins.  It's truly a reflection of their own self-righteousness and pride that they cannot come to terms with the fact that Adam and Eve fell committing the same sins as common men.  They'd rather turn their itchy ears to disney style fairy tales.

Many Christians put the media, education and the precepts of men before GOD's Word.  So arrogant in their own conceit and self-righteousness, they fail to realize that they're preaching to a world of heathens about all of mankind descending from one man, the Earth being only thousands of years old, and that Adam and Eve brought sin into the world by eating "forbidden" fruit.  Seriously, how much does such a so-called Christian really know or understand?  It's a sad truth that the majority of Christians are superficial believers that go through the motions of a "Christian" life.  It's hypocrisy for folks to believe that we have a loving GOD that punished Adam and Eve for being deceived by a literal, slithering snake to eat off a fruit tree.  

Indoctrinate means to teach (a person or group) to accept a set of beliefs uncritically.  In the term "critical thinking", the word critical, (Grk. κριτικός = kritikos = "critic") derives from the word critic, and identifies the intellectual capacity and the means "for judging" and of being "able to discern".  Accepting a set of beliefs uncritically is accepting them without discernment.  The problem intensifies when the beliefs held are contrary to one another, producing double-mindedness, holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously. 

If you know something is wrong and you do it anyway, that's not a compromise.  Thoughts, words and actions are intimately connected, so you really don't compromise within yourself knowing good and doing the opposite of it.  Because you understood something wasn't right to do, and yet, you did the opposite.  It requires the second belief or decision for the action to take place.  Living a double life or by double standards are also forms of double-mindedness.  Cognitive dissonance is the mental discomfort experienced when a person is double-minded, or performs an action contrary to his beliefs, ideas or values, or when confronted with truth that conflicts with his existing beliefs, ideas or values.

Indoctrinated minds lack critical thinking skills.  Critical reading and critical thinking work together.  When Christians cannot understand what's meant to be taken literally and figuratively in the Word of GOD, they're not being critical thinkers or readers.  Indoctrination is also passed down from one generation to the next by the traditions of men.

Mark 16:17  "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name [Jesus Christ] shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;"

Mark 16:18  "They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

Some Christians go so far as to intepret speaking "new tongues" as meaning speaking gibberish, which no man can understand.  They think it's an angelic tongue from the Holy Spirit, when all they're doing is entertaining evil spirits and spreading confusion.  The word "tongues" in this verse simply means languages or a naturally unacquired one, like learning a second language, or with the use of interpreters.  The Word would eventually be spread throughout the world, and the Gospel would be shared in multiple languages by different kindreds and races.  When the Holy Spirit speaks through a person (as on the day of Pentecost), it's in a cloven tongue, meaning everyone listening will understand it in their own mother tongue, or native language, down to the dialect and even accent.  No interpreter is necessary; it is not gibberish like some churches teach.

Other so-called Christians play with venomous snakes and drink different poisons, as if they're tempting GOD.  They take what's meant to be understood figuratively as literally.  Unless you're a professional snake handler, toying with a venomous snake will likely lead to premature death.  Drinking poison leads to the same outcome.  The real poison is the malicious lies, slander and gossip which people will say against you.  The poison and wickedness used against you will not harm you when you're doing the will of GOD and teaching His real Truth.  You'll be rejected and persecuted by other Christian brothers and sisters, because they're indoctrinated and only know the "feel good" messages and fables of organized religion.

The Lion King - pt 3 (ligers, trunks and the blink of an eye)

We now have a better understanding, from The Lion King I and II, about lions and lionesses, as well as their different roles and responsibilities in the pride.  GOD made his plants and animals just the way He likes them.  We don't mess around with His creation.

A liger is a hybrid cat, a cross between a male lion and a female tiger.  The liger's parents both belong to the genus panthera, but they are separate species.  The liger is a huge feline and can grow over 10 feet long and weigh nearly 1,000 pounds.  Ligers are intentionally bred by men, and in the wild, they occur only in legends.

Genesis 6:2  "That the sons of God [fallen watchers/angels] saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose." 

Genesis 6:4  "There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."  [first and second influx; after their destruction by the flood, as well as before it]

The subject of ligers should bring to mind the Nephilim.  The giant offspring from the sexual union between the fallen watchers and women are known as the Nephilim.  Like the Nephilim, ligers are giants, too.  Unnatural mixing causes problems and produces unnatural results, so does pollution caused by man.  Hybrid offspring end up with genetic problems, defects, deformities and just all around strangeness, such as oversized offspring with extra fingers and toes. 

Tigresses suffer while giving birth to oversized liger cubs.  So you can imagine what women went through giving birth to giant Nephilim babies.  The fallen watchers taught men "the smitings of the embryo in the womb", meaning abortion, and likely c-sections, when it came to the birthing of giant offspring.

The world has been obsessed with fallen stars (e.g. Greek false idol gods, hollywood stars, fictional heroes), since the "men of renown", or "sons of God", in the days of Noah.  The original fallen stars were the fallen angels that seduced the daughters of Adam, including two failed attempts to utterly pollute the seedline from which CHRIST would be born.  The Greeks, Egyptians, Babylonians as well as other civilizations worshipped the fallen watchers, or their offspring, as their (false) gods. 

The perversions started by the fallen watchers and Nephilim continued amongst men and a second influx of watchers, though smaller in size, occurred later after the flood.  The events from the first influx of the fallen ones brought about Noah's flood.  GOD would destroy the Nephilim, or demonic hybrids, with one devastating flood.  Satan's plan to pollute the Adamic seedline from which CHRIST, the SAVIOR, would come through would not succeed.

Enoch 6:1-2  "And it came to pass when the children of men had multiplied that in those days were born unto them beautiful and comely daughters. And the angels, the children of the heaven [fallen watchers/angels], saw and lusted after them, and said to one another: 'Come, let us choose us wives from among the children of men and beget us children."

The sons of GOD, or fallen ones, lusted after the daughters of Adam.  So too, did their leader, because satan (the serpent) lusted after and wholly seduced Eve, the first Adamic woman, in the Garden of Eden.  An evil leader is never less evil than his followers, or he won't last as their leader for long.  If the fallen watchers, the followers of satan, seduced their victims into sexual perversions, the same also applies to the works of their leader.

Sirach 10:2  "As the judge of the people is himself, so are his officers; and what manner of man the ruler of the city is, such are all they that dwell therein." 

If Sodom and Gomorrah were filled with homosexual, child molesting perverts, you can bet that the rulers were the same.  It's completely erroneous to believe that satan's mission in the Garden of Eden was to deceive Eve and Adam into eating some kind of forbidden fruit, such as an apple.  The first time that the word "apple" appears in the Bible is in the Book of Deuteronomy (32:10), where it states that the LORD will guard His people as the apple, or pupil, of His eye.  The second time apple is mentioned is in Psalms (17:8), where David asks the LORD to keep him as the apple of the eye.  The third appearance is in Proverbs (7:2) which states, "Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye."   

Song of Solomon 2:3  "As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste."

The fourth time the word "apple" shows up is in the Song of Solomon.  Here the girl, representing the bride of Christ, is comparing her love, the Shepherd, symbolic of Jesus Christ, to a great apple tree.  Think about it.  Jesus, the Living Word, is sweet to your spiritual stomach, or mind.  When you take of the truth of His Word, it fills you and you want all of it, and you also want to share it because it's so nourishing and good.

Genesis 2:17  "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."

tree = H6086. ‛êts (ates) - From H6095; a tree (from its firmness); hence wood (plural sticks): carpenter, gallows, helve, pine, plank, staff, stalk, stick, stock, timber, tree, wood.

H6095. âtsâh (Haw-tsaw') - A primitive root; properly to fasten (or make firm), that is, to close (the eyes): - shut.

H6096. ‛âtseh (aw-tseh') - From H6095; the spine (as giving firmness to the body): - back bone.

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil, in Eden, was satan.  The knowledge of good and evil means carnal knowledge, false duality, "two" minded or two-spirited, and hypocrisy.  There was no literal eating of "forbidden" apples.  Jesus Christ, the Tree of Life, or as the Shepherd, an apple tree, is not a literal tree.  Satan was not a literal tree, either.

The trees are symbolic of people, hence "I see men as trees, walking" in Mark 8:24.  In the Strong's Concordance, the word "tree" is "ets" in Hebrew, and it comes from "atsah", a primative root meaning to "fasten" or "to close" or "shut" the eyes.  The word "atsah" comes from the word "atseh", meaning the "spine" or "back bone".  So what we have is a torso, which we still refer today as the "trunk" of the body.  The trunk houses the spinal cord that connect to the brain.  The nervous system of the body consists of the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs and all of the nerves connecting the organs with the rest of the body.  Together, these organs have responsibility over controlling the body and communication amongst its many parts.  The brain and spinal cord form the central nervous system, or CNS, where decisions are made.  

And how does your body guard the pupil of your eye?  With lots of care!  Your brain guards your pupils so well, that you can't even not blink for mere seconds.  It's why we even have a blinking contest.  The brain has a "blinking center" that controls the automatic nerve action of blinking.  In Hebrew, the literal translation for "apple of the eye" is "little man of the eye" in Deuteronomy 32:10, Psalms 17:8 and Proverbs 7:2, as referenced above.  So what do you see in the reflection of another person's pupils?  A tiny version of yourself.  And if you abide in Christ, He abides in you!  You can see the love of Jesus Christ in the eyes of another Christian.

So how do you eat an "apple" or "forbidden fruit" off a tree that's not a tree, but satan himself?  You can't.  It's a different kind of fruit and a different kind of seed.  It's also impossible for all the races of mankind to come from one man.  And if you didn't notice, all of the races, then being hunters and gatherers, were created on the Sixth Day.  If you believe that all men came from Adam, you're not making sense.  In Genesis 2:5-8, after the Seventh Day, the Word states that there was not a man to till the ground, so the LORD GOD, as the Potter, formed "the man Adam" of the dust of the earth and breathed life into his nostrils, and Adam became a living soul.  GOD placed Adam in the Garden of Eden to be the first farmer, husbandman, and man priest.

The first Adam was tempted by satan in the Garden of Eden.  Adam and Eve were both seduced by the serpent, satan, who even spoke of himself, in the third person, as one of the "trees" in the Garden.  Satan seduced Eve and basically told her that if she sleeps with him, she can attain enlightenment and become a goddess, to be worshipped and adored.  She saw that the "tree", satan, was "pleasant to the eyes", meaning "lust of the flesh".  We'll get into the verse by verse explanations of the Book of Genesis in later studies.

The following words can be found in Genesis, starting from the end of Ch 2 and onto Ch 3: man; woman; wife; "they were both naked"; "were not ashamed"; "ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die"; "your eyes shall be opened"; "ye shall be as gods"; "pleasant to the eyes"; "a tree to be desired to make one wise"; "gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat"; "eyes of both of them were opened"; "knew that they were naked"; "she gave me of the tree, and I did eat"; "the serpent beguiled me and I did eat"; "thy seed and her seed"; conception; children.  Only innocent souls, such as children, can run around naked in a garden, completely unashamed.  In the Garden of Eden, this didn't last very long.  The "liger" from the sexual union of the serpent and Eve was Cain.  Obviously, Cain was not a literal "liger", or "tigon" (a hybrid cross between a male tiger and female lion), or tree, but you get the point now. 

To be continued...
