Mary, Queen of Heaven, Mother of God?

It is a sad truth that false doctrines have turned a faithful and loving mother into a symbol of praise and veneration.  Mary, Yeshua’s mother is now placed on the same level as her son by certain denominations of Christians; this is blasphemy and false worship and is seen as a grave sin in the eyes of God and His son, Jesus the Christ:

14 Blessed are those who do His commandments,[g] that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But[h] outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. (Revelation 22: 14-15)

In 1954 Pope Pius XII determined that Mary was the Queen of Heaven and the Mother of God“Encyclical Ad Caeli Reginam. Vatican. http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/pius_xii/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-xii_enc_11101954_ad-caeli-reginam_en.html.  First image depicts the coronation of Mary.

The Pagan “mother god” as queen of heaven.

The term Queen of Heaven was used in ancient times by Pagan worshippers; many of their goddesses were entitled “Queen of Heaven”.  Jeremiah the prophet criticises the worship of Ashtoreth the Queen of Heaven.  For example, in Jeremiah 7:18 it reads:

“The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger.”

Also in Jeremiah 44:15-18 it says:

“Then all the men who knew that their wives were burning incense to other gods, along with all the women who were present—a large assembly—and all the people living in Lower and Upper Egypt, said to Jeremiah, “We will not listen to the message you have spoken to us in the name of the LORD! We will certainly do everything we said we would: We will burn incense to the Queen of Heaven and will pour out drink offerings to her just as we and our fathers, our kings and our officials did in the towns of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem. At that time we had plenty of food and were well off and suffered no harm. But ever since we stopped burning incense to the Queen of Heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have had nothing and have been perishing by sword and famine.” “

There is no place in the scriptures that tells us Mary is Queen of Heaven, this is an example of man-made dogma.  The Roman Catholic Church also sees Mary crowned as queen in heaven in the Book of Revelation 12, verses 1-5:

“1 A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.”

This is an example of trying to fit false teachings into the scriptures.  This quote actually refers to Israel and not Mary.

Idol worship

It is now a Catholic rite to crown and even dress statues of Mary, the origin of this can be found in Babylonian god worship:

Baruch 6:9 “Their gods have golden crowns upon their heads; whereof the priests secretly convey away from them gold, and silver, and bestow it on themselves”.  (This can be found in the Roman Catholic Bible)

Statues and images are forms of idol worship:

Exodus 20:4 -5  “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God,…”

The Pope bows down in front of a crowned statue of Mary!

The following is commentary from a P{aganistic website on the Virgin Mary in Catholic worship.

As we explain in detail in our main page on the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Image of Mary is iconographically a depiction of Our Mother God. In the early days of Christianity, many statues of the Magna Mater (Great Mother) were simply rededicated as Mary statues. We are simply reclaiming our own.

And the Name Mary-Ma-Mari is a universal name of Dea. The Collyridians, who worship Mary as Supreme Deity, write:

When we adore and devote ourselves to Mary, we are not merely speaking of a certain Jewish woman who lived at the turn of the first century, but of the Lady of All Things that is revealed through the icons and mythos of the Virgin Mary.

Below is a hymn to the “Lady of Guadalupe” or the Virgin Mary which outlines her origin, look at the number of idolatarous and blasphemous references.  (Taken from http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2147273/posts)

Constant preaching and missions could not sway the people from sacrificing their
children to demons and paying tribute to the cunning Serpent of old. In Thy image of
Guadalupe, Thou didst reveal Thyself as “She who crushes the serpent,” removing from

Prayer to the Most Holy Theotokos of Guadalupe

O Theotokos of Guadalupe, accept this humble hymn of praise from us Thy servants in
honour of Thy miraculous image not made by human hands. Cover us with the Mantle of Thy Protection and guide with the prayers of Thy all-powerful intercession. Deliver us from the wiles of the Serpent of old, and break his hold on nations and individuals in our time. Lead us to Thy Son as the Divine Ladder, the flaming Bush unconsumed by fire
and the Ark of the New Covenant. Most Holy Mother of God intercede for us and save
us by Thy prayers. Amen.

In this hymn Mary is referred to as Theotokos which means “one who gives birth to God” this suggests that she superceded God and therefore the cause of all divinity.

Here follows the commentary of the Virgin Mary from the same Pagan site as mentioned above.

“The ancient titles of the Supreme Creatrix were bestowed on Her – Queen of Heaven; Star of the Sea; Rose of the World. She was pictured “clothed in the Sun” like the Solar Mother, with the moon at her feet. She was depicted crushing the head of the serpent just like Eurynome, the Mother-Creatrix of ancient European religion.

Even theologically, the Divinity of the Blessed Virgin Mary was hard to suppress. The doctrine of the Immaculate Conception means that She was conceived without sin. Now, according to Christian doctrine, all humans are conceived in original sin, and only Christ can redeem that sin. But the Blessed Virgin Mary, before the incarnation of Christ, was sinless, unlike any human being, and made the redemption possible”.

The above website can be found by googling mother of god or mother god – I do not want to link to it!

I think this is enough to illustrate that idol worship takes place within certain “Christian” denominations.  For further information on Mary worship please visit http://www.hol.com/~mikesch/sunburst.htm

The spirit of deceipt and pride

I recently published a post  called The birth of the Messiah foretold in Egypt and Israel, I mentioned a particular website which I had been led to called ‘Dream Link’.  This website contained some information on spiritual matters, but this is only part of a lesson that I would like to share with you.  The person who created the site wrote on one page that he had been taken to see God in heaven and often comes into contact with angels and dark spirits. He later went on to say that many things had been revealed to him and that anybody who came across this website came across it for a reason and it was for those people that he would reveal his knowledge.

Now, I’m sure for some of you alarm bells would start ringing.  For me it did also but I didn’t pay attention, why?  Because I thought that God had called me to find that website, I was under the impression that I was somehow special.  I spent a lot of time on that website and the more time I spent browsing the site the more I knew that the spirit of God was not the one providing this person with wisdom.  They had been deceived by the spirit of deceit (Satan).

There are many reasons why I believe this and I won’t go into all of them now but I’m sure if you visited the website you will begin to understand what I mean.  This is not to say that many of this man’s ideas and experiences are not true or based in truth but they have also been overshadowed with lies which is how the deceiver works, he mixes the lie and the truth in together, the danger is if you are too prideful you can become ensnared in the web of lies.

  1. For example, this man overly focuses on dreams, night visions and talking or communicating with spirits, he also looks at dream interpretation.  If you look in the bible, never does it suggest that God tells His people to rely on dreams, night visions or to spend time talking to spirits.  Dream interpretation is a gift from God, we are not given this gift even Daniel prayed to God for interpretation.  The only realm that understands dream interpretation is the spiritual realm.  The book of Enoch says that the Sons of God cam down and slept with the daughters of men and taught them ancient spiritual knowledge including dream interpretation.  Such things are spiritual and all gifts come from God for good or else they are from the devil for destruction.  You need only look at the home page for signs of the spirit behind this person’s knowledge.
  2. This man is very arrogant and aggressive in his attitude towards Christians, he argues that anybody who wants to know the truth will believe in what he says and is really not concerned with anyone else.  Some of his writing is condescending and this does not strike me as being godly.  I feel that many people will be drawn into accepting his beliefs because of the underlying challenge he puts towards them as being the “true believers”, unfortunately the pride of these people will lead them to follow a route of lies.
  3. This man says that he can see the future, can hear God’s voice as clear as someone else’s actually talking to him (uses scripture incorrectly to support this) and claims to know that the Messiah will return before he dies!
  4. This man claims that the Knights Templar and the Free Masons are good “Christians” and that the USA are ordained by God to be the leaders of the free world.  Well, in relation to this point I would like to refer you to the following clip ( see the entire series).

Basically, all I am trying to say is that it is possible for anyone to be deceived that is why the Bible tells us to test the spirit of knowledge that we come across.

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  1 John 4:1

Please also refer to this website for other bible scriptures on  false spirits and prophets.  But it is easier for some people to be deceived when they are prideful, thankfully I do believe that Yah did lead me to that site and it has led me to make this post.

God Keep you and Bless you all.  Amen.

The birth of the Messiah foretold in Egypt and Israel?

After returning from church this evening, I started to search for something on Google that had been bothering me and I came across this website (please read my comments on this website).  I spent quite a while reading it and it led me to post some of my older bits of writing into my blog.  The particular page on Zion caused me to google some key terms that I was not sure about as I have to test the spirit of knowledge I am receiving is it from God or the deceiver.  I came across another website where I listened to some of the YouTube postings.

As I listened I hummed and hahhed over it.  For anyone who has particularly read the Old testament you may have come across a portion in Isaiah 19:25 that says:

The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”

This verse really threw me as it made me really think about my conceptions of who the LORD’s people actually are, and that Yah had chosen for Himself 3 people’s in Egypt, Assyria and Israel. Egypt being called “His people”, Assyria (or Iraq) is called “His creation” which is believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden and Israel “His special Possession”.  According to verse 24 each of these 3 are a special blessing, but it only the land of Assyria which is blessed not it’s inhabitants!

Anyway, back to the point as I was listening to the YouTube clip I stopped on the 2nd one at 5 minutes 12s

and had to replay it again, it said that the Messiah was born on the 27th of September 2BC.  How did they work this out, well from mathematical calculations based on the Pyramid at Giza (please click links throughout this posting for explanation).  Well, this shocked me because I knew that Yeshua’s birth date was not December 25th 0000.  From previous research and from understanding of the Hebrew scriptures which I had come across (please visit this website for a synopsis), it seems that all Hebrew festivals point to the Messiah in some shape or form.  I strongly believe that the birth date of the Messiah is the Feast of Booths (Sukkot) which is in September, so you can see how alarm bells might ring!!!

So I checked, the date for this feast which is in the Hebrew month of Tishri (late September to late October) and lo! and behold the feast of Sukkot takes place in late September too!

What does this mean?

The pyramid and the Hebrew reveal the same thing about the birth date of the messiah, what other things do they share?  Is this an indication as Isaiah says that there is a spiritual link between the people of Egypt and Israel?  Who knows, only Yah.

Christmas

Pagan routes of modern Christianity

The truth about Christmas

For 28 years I have celebrated Christmas under the false impression that I was celebrating the birth of the saviour, until the LORD really began to move with speed in my life.  He pointed out the truth about Easter, church feasts and now Christmas.  The saddest thing is everything we need to know is in the Bible but people choose to follow church doctrines and follow blind shepherds instead of the only truth which is found in the bible. Remember what our saviour says: “Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch? Luke 6:39

It is a lot harder to stand up for the truth than to follow the crowd that is why the minority of people including “Christians” are really followers of the Messiah.  Didn’t He say “follow Me”, unfortunately so many people prefer to follow the world and follow fake man-made doctrines and indulge in false worship, our saviour had this to say about the doctrine of men: Mark 7:8

8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men[a]—the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

This is later re-emphasised in the epistle by Paul in Colossians 2:8:

8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.

Do not be fooled by comfortable rituals which appease your mind but do nothing for the spirit.  If you don’t believe me believe the Bible, test the Bible and ask the LORD, He has promised to show Himself to all who seek him in truth and in spirit.

The origin of Christmas

December the 25th is marked as the birth of the saviour, it is celebrated as a time for gift giving but many people are unaware of the origin of this date.  The Bible does not tell us when the Messiah was born to the unobservant reader, as all things in the scripture the truth can only be found through love, patience and respect for the LORD.

Now, I am no historian, much of what I write comes from the prompting of the spirit which reveals the truth to me through seeking the truth through revelations to other believers and through the spirit of God in my life.  I am no different to anyone else apart from I have a desire to know the truth no matter how uncomfortable it may be.  In relation to Christmas, I would like to point out a few truths and invite you to seek the validity of these statements on your own under the premise that “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force her to drink from it.”

Truth 1

The earliest reference to the date of the nativity as December 25 is found in the Chronography of 354, an illuminated manuscript compiled in Rome in 354.[26] The feast was introduced to Constantinople in 379, and to Antioch in about 380.  So in the 4th Century AD, over 300 years after the birth of the Messiah!  Taken from Wikipedia

Truth 2

Other names of Christmas are: Yuletide and Sol Invictus amongst other names.  These are all names of pagan festivals which originated to worship the sun during the winter solstice! Many pagans find it highly amusing that so-called “Christians” take part in worshipping one of their gods”.

Truth 3

The Roman Empire (The last Kingdom of Babylon – Europe and US) has “Christianised” pagan festivals into Christian feasts to enable the continuation of false worship and as such blind people to the truth.  Over the years worship of the sun became worship of the Son!  We are being lied to from the changing of the Sabbath to Sunday to watering down the scriptures for the sake of political correctness, these all testify to the power of the anti-Christ in our midst.

Truth 4

Observance of Christmas is worship of the sun god which the LORD forbade throughout the bible.  Christmas encourages worship of Baal gods such as the sun god by making it seem fun and full of “goodwill to all men”. (Deut 4:19)

Truth 5

Our saviour was born during the Hebrew Feast of Tabernacles in the month of Tishri, like Chinese whispers, a story re-told over and over across different tongues soon gets glamorised into something alien.  If you have no understanding of the Hebrew culture you will be more likely to incorporate it into your own norms which is what Greek NT writers did, with the help of those who persecuted the early Messianic church (no names mentioned).

Do your self a favour and investigate these 5 Truths, is your soul really worth being ignorant over?

Why should this be a problem? Well firstly, I feel that at this moment in time there is a heightening culture of fear which has been characterised by reduced morality in young people today, an increased reliance on science and an increase in atheist attitudes particularly within the western world.

What does it really mean to be a Jew?

As I have come to embrace and understand the Hebrew Messiah I have noticed that many Christians hold a negative perception of the Jewish people and their culture and as such are not open to learning about the Hebrew roots of Christianity. This has caused much frustration for me and I have been asked whether I have converted to Judaism. Although I have not “converted” to Judaism, I do see mself as a Jew and I can fully understand why Messianics hold onto their Jewishness. However, within Christian circles anybody (including Jews) who accept the Messiah have become Christians. But what is the difference between being a Christian and a Messianic Jew?
