Pressed in Gethsemane

The Messiah (one anointed with oil) prayed in an olive grove at a place called Olive Press on a hill called Mount of Olives. He felt intense pressure like an olive in an olive press.


Yeshua concluded His seder and farewell discourse in the upper room of a house in Jerusalem’s upper city. He went out “as was His custom to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed Him.” They did not return to Bethany that night because the Torah required those keeping Passover to remain in Jerusalem on the night of their seder. In those days, many Passover pilgrims camped on the face of the Mount of Olives. It was our Master’s custom to stay at a particular spot on the Mount of Olives during the pilgrimage festivals. “Yeshua had often met there with His disciples” (John 18:2).The Mount of Olives is a two-and-a-half-mile spur of mountainous ridge running parallel to Jerusalem’s eastern wall line, separated from the city by the deep ravine of the Kidron Valley. The Mount of Olives plays an important part in messianic prophecy. According to the prophecies of Ezekiel, the Shechinah departs and enters from Jerusalem by means of “the mountain which is east of the city.” In the future, the Messiah will appear on the Mount of Olives to rescue Jerusalem: “In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east” (Zechariah 14:4).The Sages of the Mishnah called the Mount of Olives “The Mount of Anointing (Har HaMeshichah, הר המשחה).” The messianic expectation associated with the mountain explains why devout Jews of Jerusalem favor the slopes of the Mount of Olives for burial. The resurrection of the dead will start there.Today, tombs cover the much of the western face of the mountain, but in the days of the Master, trees covered the slopes.

The Master and His disciples pitched their camp in a grove of olive trees near the foot of the mount and the Kidron valley. The grove was called Gat Shamnei (גת שמני), which means “Olive Press.” An olive press probably stood within a cave in the midst of the grove, and the disciples camped in the cave.

The name of the location hints toward the meaning of the events that took place there that night. One cannot overlook the convergence of symbolism when the Mashiach (Anointed One) prays in the midst of an olive grove, in a place called the “Olive Press,” on the slopes of the hill of messianic expectation called the “Mount of Anointing.”

In the days of the Master, the owner of the grove procured olive oil from his olives by crushing them into a mash in a stone mill and then pressing them under the intense weight of a beam-press to force the oil out. The olive imagery suggests the rite of anointing whereby the title mashiach (“anointed one,” משיח) is derived. As the Master prayed that night, he came under an intense pressure that can be compared to what an olive in an olive press must feel. He said, “My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death” (Mark 14:34). Luke 22:44 relates, “And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.” (Click to Source)

Garden of Eden FOUND? How archaeologist discovered ‘true location’ after Jerusalem find

THE Garden of Eden’s location may have finally been found thanks to a discovery by an archaeologist in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, a documentary claimed.

By CALLUM HOARE
The Garden of Eden, also referred to as Paradise, is the biblical garden of God described in the Book of Genesis about the creation of man. The narrative surrounds the apparent first man and woman – Adam and Eve – placed in the garden to guard the Tree of Life, before being tempted by a serpent to eat from a forbidden tree – a move that saw them expelled. Many have long searched for its location, based on clues given in the biblical text, but the age-long question may have finally been uncovered.

Archaeologist Jodi Magness revealed during Morgan Freeman’s documentary: “The Story of God”, how a discovery in a church in Jerusalem led her to believe she has the answer.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is located in the Old City and is believed to be the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified and later resurrected – in a place known as “Calvary”, or “Golgotha”.

Dr Magness revealed how this was also the apparent burial place for Adam.

She said in 2017: “[The clue comes from] underneath the rock of Golgotha, the rocky outcrop which Christians believe Jesus was crucified on.

The Garden of Eden, or Paradise, becomes conceptualised as the spot where the presence of God dwells

Jodi Magness

“Below is the chapel of Adam and there is a tradition which goes way back in Christianity which connects this spot to Adam – the first man.

“When Jesus was crucified on top of the rock above us, his blood flowed down through a crack in the rock.

“And Adam, the first man, lay buried underneath, but when Jesus’ blood flowed onto him, he was resurrected.”

This idea contradicts the description given in the Bible.

The Book of Genesis clearly lists four rivers in association with the garden, Pishon, Gihon, Chidekel and Phirat, suggesting its location was in southern Mesopotamia, now known as Iraq.

However, Dr Magness detailed how this may actually support a theory she has.

She added: “Well, the version of the story that ended up in the Book of Genesis seems to place the Garden of Eden somewhere in Mesopotamia.

“But I think Adam had a very special connection with Jerusalem.

“The Garden of Eden, or Paradise, becomes conceptualised as the spot where the presence of God dwells.

“In early Judaism and the time of Jesus the presence of God dwelled in the temple, and hence why Jerusalem was conceived of as Eden [at that time].”

Dr Magness was asked if she believed the Garden of Eden is actually a metaphor for the beginning of life and is, in fact, wherever God’s presence is.

She responded: “Well, yes – of course.

“Adam was the first human and, in Hebrew, the word ‘Adam’ means ‘man’.

“Also, if you take off the ‘a’, you are left with ‘dam’, in Hebrew that means ‘blood’.

“And if you add ‘ah’ to the end, ‘adamah’ means land.” (Click to Source)

Religious Freedom Expert: Global War on Christians Intensifying

 

The Sri Lanka Easter Sunday massacre on three churches is a signal the Muslim extremist war on Christians is intensifying across the world and something needs to be done about it, a religious freedom expert told Fox News.

Nina Shea, director of the Center for Religious Freedom of the Hudson Institute, said the United States needs to do more to protect Christians in countries where they are being slaughtered.

“We sell ourselves short,” Shea said. “We don’t ever defend Christians, we always have higher priorities regarding terror. We don’t understand there’s a link between the two. The weakness of those Christians makes them a very soft target, and the governments don’t feel any pressure coming from us. They feel pressure coming from one side, and that’s the extremists.”

Statistics from the Hudson Institute are alarming. Every month about 345 Christians are killed for “faith-based” reasons and 105 churches or Christian buildings are burned or attacked. Globally, one in nine Christians experiences persecution.

“I don’t think people are aware of it,” Shea said. “They’re afraid of talking about it. Some of them are afraid that they will get retribution by the extremists if they talk about it back in those countries.”

She added: “In fact, the United States did give Sri Lanka a quiet warning that churches were going to be attacked over Easter and they did not heed it. We need to elevate this.”

Shea’s colleague, Sam Tadros, estimates there have been about 500 church attacks in the last couple of years. These occurred on Palm Sunday, a coordinated attack a couple of years ago on Christians in December in Cairo.

“It’s heartbreaking and it happens in the villages,”

In Egypt, the government is going after ISIS, Shea notes, but there are local Muslim extremist groups attacking churches with impunity. In Nigeria, an estimated 900 church attacks happened in a five-year period.

“These are happening on Christmas, Easter,” Shea concluded. “The short term solution is security and we need to promote that.” (Click to Source)

SEX-CULT CASE SNARES HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN

‘I was there, and I knew that the contributions were made’

The stunning allegations of sexual abuse and human trafficking inside the NXIVM cult now has snared the Hillary Clinton campaign.

The Daily Mail reported actress Allison Mack recently pleaded guilty to blackmailing two women into becoming sex slaves for the cult’s leader.

“Mack, 36, sobbed as she admitted her crimes and apologized to the women who prosecutors say were exploited by Keith Raniere and the purported self-help group,” the report said.

Mack said, “Through it all, I believed that Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people,” even as she pleaded guilty to racketeering.

Now, ZeroHedge reports U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue has asked a federal judge for permission to present new evidence in the case, including of an “illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign” in the “hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda.”

The filing in the U.S. District Court for New York in the case U.S. vs. Keith Ranier, Clare Bronfman, Allison Mack, Kathy Russell, Lauren Salzman and Nancy Salzman states.

“At the suggestion of a political operative, who has since pleaded guilty to an unrelated New York state bribery charge also involving campaign contributions, the contributions were ‘bundled’ and presented to the candidate at a fundraising event attended by conspirators.”

Tyler Durden reported at Zerohedge: “And whose ‘presidential primary campaign’ did the group allegedly attempt to buy influence with?

“None other than Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to former NXIVM publicist-turned-whistleblower Frank Parlato, who told Big League Politics, ‘I was there, and I knew that the contributions were made by more than a dozen NXIVM members of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.”

The court filing continues: “At trial, the government intends to introduce witness testimony and documents demonstrating that in 2007, the defendants and their co-conspirators were involved in an illegal scheme to exceed contribution limits to a presidential primary campaign. Witness testimony, corroborated by documentary evidence, will demonstrate that at least 14 members of the NXIVM community, including at least five defendants and co-conspirators, made the maximum campaign donation to a primary campaign with the understand that they would be reimbursed by Bronfman or Nancy Salzman.

“A cooperating witness who attended the event will trestify that the defendants and their co-conspirators made the contributions in hopes of obtaining political influence to advance their own agenda, including targeting perceived enemies of Ranier. The government will also seek to introduce evidence of similar conduit contributions to other elected officials, as well as use of other political lobbyists in attempts to gain influence.”

Zerohedge explained, “Founded by accused pedophile Keith Raniere, NXIVM started out as a multi-level-marketing self-help business for people who wanted to ‘reach their potential’ through various courses.”

The group was run out of Arkansas in the early ’90s by then-Gov. Bill Clinton’s attorney general on charges of fraud and business deception, but “Ranier and NXIVM executives emerged a decade later only to donate $29,900 to Hillary Clinton’s 2006 president campaign.”

The New York Post said at least three cult officials are or were “invitation-only” members of the Clinton Global Initiative.

Currently, the cult is thought to have engaged in sex-slave activity involving a number of women. Pending federal charges include sex trafficking, forced labor, wire fraud conspiracy and human trafficking.

Raniere also has pleaded not guilty to counts of child porn.

The report said: “Female members … such as former Smallville actress Allison Mack, would procure women for Raniere – who required that prospective ‘slaves’ upload compromising collateral into a Dropbox account. One such recruit-turned-coach was India Oxenberg – daughter of Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, who met with prosecutors in New York in late 2017 to present evidence against Raniere.”

Mack, at the time she pleaded guilty, said she obtained compromising information and images of two unidentified women and that she “threatened to make [those] public if they didn’t perform ‘so-called acts of love.’” (Click to Source)

The Essence of Evil: Sex with Children Has Become Big Business in America

John Whitehead

“Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.

This is America’s dirty little secret.

Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns.

As investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins notes, “It’s become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns. A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day—and a ‘righteous’ pimp confiscates 100 percent of her earnings.”

Consider this: every two minutes, a child is exploited in the sex industry.

According to USA Today, adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States.

Who buys a child for sex? Otherwise ordinary men from all walks of life.

“They could be your co-worker, doctor, pastor or spouse,” writes journalist Tim Swarens, who spent more than a year investigating the sex trade in America.

In Georgia alone, it is estimated that 7,200 men (half of them in their 30s) seek to purchase sex with adolescent girls each month, averaging roughly 300 a day.

On average, a child might be raped by 6,000 men during a five-year period of servitude.

It is estimated that at least 100,000 children—girls and boys—are bought and sold for sex in the U.S. every year, with as many as 300,000 children in danger of being trafficked each year. Some of these children are forcefully abducted, others are runaways, and still others are sold into the system by relatives and acquaintances.

“Human trafficking—the commercial sexual exploitation of American children and women, via the Internet, strip clubs, escort services, or street prostitution—is on its way to becoming one of the worst crimes in the U.S.,” said prosecutor Krishna Patel.

This is an industry that revolves around cheap sex on the fly, with young girls and women who are sold to 50 men each day for $25 apiece, while their handlers make $150,000 to $200,000 per child each year.

This is not a problem found only in big cities.

It’s happening everywhere, right under our noses, in suburbs, cities and towns across the nation.

As Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children points out, “The only way not to find this in any American city is simply not to look for it.”

Don’t fool yourselves into believing that this is merely a concern for lower income communities or immigrants.

It’s not.

It is estimated that there are 100,000 to 150,000 under-aged child sex workers in the U.S. These girls aren’t volunteering to be sex slaves. They’re being lured—forced—trafficked into it. In most cases, they have no choice.

In order to avoid detection (in some cases aided and abetted by the police) and cater to male buyers’ demand for sex with different women, pimps and the gangs and crime syndicates they work for have turned sex trafficking into a highly mobile enterprise, with trafficked girls, boys and women constantly being moved from city to city, state to state, and country to country.

For instance, the Baltimore-Washington area, referred to as The Circuit, with its I-95 corridor dotted with rest stops, bus stations and truck stops, is a hub for the sex trade.

No doubt about it: this is a highly profitable, highly organized and highly sophisticated sex trafficking business that operates in towns large and small, raking in upwards of $9.5 billion a year in the U.S. alone by abducting and selling young girls for sex.

Every year, the girls being bought and sold gets younger and younger.

The average age of those being trafficked is 13. Yet as the head of a group that combats trafficking pointed out, “Let’s think about what average means. That means there are children younger than 13. That means 8-, 9-, 10-year-olds.“

“For every 10 women rescued, there are 50 to 100 more women who are brought in by the traffickers. Unfortunately, they’re not 18- or 20-year-olds anymore,” noted a 25-year-old victim of trafficking. “They’re minors as young as 13 who are being trafficked. They’re little girls.”

Where did this appetite for young girls come from?

Look around you.

Young girls have been sexualized for years now in music videos, on billboards, in television ads, and in clothing stores. Marketers have created a demand for young flesh and a ready supply of over-sexualized children.

“All it takes is one look at MySpace photos of teens to see examples—if they aren’t imitating porn they’ve actually seen, they’re imitating the porn-inspired images and poses they’ve absorbed elsewhere,” writes Jessica Bennett for Newsweek. “Latex, corsets and stripper heels, once the fashion of porn stars, have made their way into middle and high school.”

This is what Bennett refers to as the “pornification of a generation.”

“In a market that sells high heels for babies and thongs for tweens, it doesn’t take a genius to see that sex, if not porn, has invaded our lives,” concludes Bennett. “Whether we welcome it or not, television brings it into our living rooms and the Web brings it into our bedrooms. According to a 2007 study from the University of Alberta, as many as 90 percent of boys and 70 percent of girls aged 13 to 14 have accessed sexually explicit content at least once.”

In other words, the culture is grooming these young people to be preyed upon by sexual predators. And then we wonder why our young women are being preyed on, trafficked and abused?

Social media makes it all too easy. As one news center reported, “Finding girls is easy for pimps. They look on MySpace, Facebook, and other social networks. They and their assistants cruise malls, high schools and middle schools. They pick them up at bus stops. On the trolley. Girl-to-girl recruitment sometimes happens.” Foster homes and youth shelters have also become prime targets for traffickers.

Rarely do these girls enter into prostitution voluntarily. Many start out as runaways or throwaways, only to be snatched up by pimps or larger sex rings. Others, persuaded to meet up with a stranger after interacting online through one of the many social networking sites, find themselves quickly initiated into their new lives as sex slaves.

Debbie, a straight-A student who belonged to a close-knit Air Force family living in Phoenix, Ariz., is an example of this trading of flesh. Debbie was 15 when she was snatched from her driveway by an acquaintance-friend. Forced into a car, Debbie was bound and taken to an unknown location, held at gunpoint and raped by multiple men. She was then crammed into a small dog kennel and forced to eat dog biscuits. Debbie’s captors advertised her services on Craigslist. Those who responded were often married with children, and the money that Debbie “earned” for sex was given to her kidnappers. The gang raping continued. After searching the apartment where Debbie was held captive, police finally found Debbie stuffed in a drawer under a bed. Her harrowing ordeal lasted for 40 days.

While Debbie was fortunate enough to be rescued, others are not so lucky. According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, nearly 800,000 children go missing every year (roughly 2,185 children a day).

With a growing demand for sexual slavery and an endless supply of girls and women who can be targeted for abduction, this is not a problem that’s going away anytime soon.

For those trafficked, it’s a nightmare from beginning to end.

Those being sold for sex have an average life expectancy of seven years, and those years are a living nightmare of endless rape, forced drugging, humiliation, degradation, threats, disease, pregnancies, abortions, miscarriages, torture, pain, and always the constant fear of being killed or, worse, having those you love hurt or killed.

Peter Landesman paints the full horrors of life for those victims of the sex trade in his New York Times article “The Girls Next Door”:

Andrea told me that she and the other children she was held with were frequently beaten to keep them off-balance and obedient. Sometimes they were videotaped while being forced to have sex with adults or one another. Often, she said, she was asked to play roles: the therapist patient or the obedient daughter. Her cell of sex traffickers offered three age ranges of sex partners–toddler to age 4, 5 to 12 and teens–as well as what she called a “damage group.” “In the damage group, they can hit you or do anything they want to,” she explained. “Though sex always hurts when you are little, so it’s always violent, everything was much more painful once you were placed in the damage group.”

What Andrea described next shows just how depraved some portions of American society have become. “They’d get you hungry then to train you” to have oral sex. “They put honey on a man. For the littlest kids, you had to learn not to gag. And they would push things in you so you would open up better. We learned responses. Like if they wanted us to be sultry or sexy or scared. Most of them wanted you scared. When I got older, I’d teach the younger kids how to float away so things didn’t hurt.”

Immigration and customs enforcement agents at the Cyber Crimes Center in Fairfax, Va., report that when it comes to sex, the appetites of many Americans have now changed. What was once considered abnormal is now the norm. These agents are tracking a clear spike in the demand for harder-core pornography on the Internet. As one agent noted, “We’ve become desensitized by the soft stuff; now we need a harder and harder hit.”

This trend is reflected by the treatment many of the girls receive at the hands of the drug traffickers and the men who purchase them. Peter Landesman interviewed Rosario, a Mexican woman who had been trafficked to New York and held captive for a number of years. She said: “In America, we had ‘special jobs.’ Oral sex, anal sex, often with many men. Sex is now more adventurous, harder.”

A common thread woven through most survivors’ experiences is being forced to go without sleep or food until they have met their sex quota of at least 40 men. One woman recounts how her trafficker made her lie face down on the floor when she was pregnant and then literally jumped on her back, forcing her to miscarry.

Holly Austin Smith was abducted when she was 14 years old, raped, and then forced to prostitute herself. Her pimp, when brought to trial, was only made to serve a year in prison.

Barbara Amaya was repeatedly sold between traffickers, abused, shot, stabbed, raped, kidnapped, trafficked, beaten, and jailed all before she was 18 years old. “I had a quota that I was supposed to fill every night. And if I didn’t have that amount of money, I would get beat, thrown down the stairs. He beat me once with wire coat hangers, the kind you hang up clothes, he straightened it out and my whole back was bleeding.”

As David McSwane recounts in a chilling piece for the Herald-Tribune: “In Oakland Park, an industrial Fort Lauderdale suburb, federal agents in 2011 encountered a brothel operated by a married couple. Inside ‘The Boom Boom Room,’ as it was known, customers paid a fee and were given a condom and a timer and left alone with one of the brothel’s eight teenagers, children as young as 13. A 16-year-old foster child testified that he acted as security, while a 17-year-old girl told a federal judge she was forced to have sex with as many as 20 men a night.”

One particular sex trafficking ring catered specifically to migrant workers employed seasonally on farms throughout the southeastern states, especially the Carolinas and Georgia, although it’s a flourishing business in every state in the country. Traffickers transport the women from farm to farm, where migrant workers would line up outside shacks, as many as 30 at a time, to have sex with them before they were transported to yet another farm where the process would begin all over again.

This growing evil is, for all intents and purposes, out in the open.

Trafficked women and children are advertised on the internet, transported on the interstate, and bought and sold in swanky hotels.

Indeed, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the government’s war on sex trafficking—much like the government’s war on terrorism, drugs and crime—has become a perfect excuse for inflicting more police state tactics (police check points, searches, surveillance, and heightened security) on a vulnerable public, while doing little to make our communities safer.

So what can you do?

Educate yourselves and your children about this growing menace in our communities.

Stop feeding the monster: Sex trafficking is part of a larger continuum in America that runs the gamut from homelessness, poverty, and self-esteem issues to sexualized television, the glorification of a pimp/ho culture—what is often referred to as the pornification of America—and a billion dollar sex industry built on the back of pornography, music, entertainment, etc.

This epidemic is largely one of our own making, especially in a corporate age where the value placed on human life takes a backseat to profit. It is estimated that the porn industry brings in more money than Amazon, Microsoft, Google, Apple, and Yahoo.

Call on your city councils, elected officials and police departments to make the battle against sex trafficking a top priority, more so even than the so-called war on terror and drugs and the militarization of law enforcement.

Stop prosecuting adults for victimless “crimes” such as growing lettuce in their front yard and focus on putting away the pimps and buyers who victimize these young women.

Finally, the police need to do a better job of training, identifying and responding to these issues; communities and social services need to do a better job of protecting runaways, who are the primary targets of traffickers; legislators need to pass legislation aimed at prosecuting traffickers and “johns,” the buyers who drive the demand for sex slaves; and hotels need to stop enabling these traffickers, by providing them with rooms and cover for their dirty deeds.

That so many women and children continue to be victimized, brutalized and treated like human cargo is due to three things: one, a consumer demand that is increasingly lucrative for everyone involved—except the victims; two, a level of corruption so invasive on both a local and international scale that there is little hope of working through established channels for change; and three, an eerie silence from individuals who fail to speak out against such atrocities.

But the truth is that we are all guilty of contributing to this human suffering. The traffickers are guilty. The consumers are guilty. The corrupt law enforcement officials are guilty. The women’s groups who do nothing are guilty. The foreign peacekeepers and aid workers who contribute to the demand for sex slaves are guilty. Most of all, every individual who does not raise a hue and cry over the atrocities being committed against women and children in almost every nation around the globe—including the United States—is guilty.

LGBT Is Out To Destroy Christianity, Forever

b572b095f5ca0b6f3a3989e5759a5337

HNewsWire– The militant LGBT activists, who fought for years for homosexuality to be recognized by society and now that it is prominent in our culture and they have not only equal but special legal protection in the United States, they simply aren’t satisfied at that.

The LGBT left seem to believe their mission will not be complete ,In their eyes, it is not enough that they have gained the legal rights they demanded for years. No, every person in this country must share their views on homosexuality, and those who don’t must be punished.

What can be the end except an utter war against the Holy Bible and the godly citizens that will not compromise with such sickness? America is on the precipice of complete sorrow and deceit.

Seek and destroy, this appears to be the case with a group of activists who have targeted a Christian ministry, managed by a man who overcame homosexuality, and are intent on completely destroying the work they are doing as well as all ministries that offer guidance to those seeking freedom from homosexuality.

Christian News Wire has the story:

“The level of hatred and bullying is not like anything we’ve seen,” says Stephen Black, who lived as a gay man for 8 years, over 35 years ago, and now Executive Director of First Stone Ministries is in the crosshairs of gay activists.

On April 6, First Stone Ministries (firststone.org) is hosting a public screening of the documentary film, Tranzformed: Finding Peace with Your God-Given Gender (tranzformed.org/). “This documentary is about 15 people who were unhappy as homosexuals and transgendered and wanted more in their relationship with Jesus Christ,” says Black. Gay activists have already sent death threats to a Michigan pastor and his family and are now setting their sights on Black.

Gay advocate and protestor, Sara Cunningham, vowed to close First Stone Ministries (she appealed for a $25,000 grant from Starbucks for her mission). Her goal is to mobilize and eliminate any mention of the possibility of change, even if people want it and even if it means a transformed life. “To agree to disagree on this issue and this type of ministry is no longer acceptable,” says Cunningham. But Black sees it differently, “In the last ten years, there has been an increasing attack on the gospel-centered message of freedom from homosexuality.” Activists are intent on shutting down any counseling that leads to new life in Christ and freedom from homosexuality.
Please consider supporting First Stone Ministries either financially or by keeping them in prayer as they stand strong against these vicious and violent attacks! If you’d like to encourage Stephen Black during these trying times, you can reach out to him here. Let’s let him know we stand with him and his ministry!

The Church that Jesus Christ died for and was entrusted to the Apostle Paul did not reemerge until the time of John Wycliffe and the Reformation. We call this time period The Enlightenment. In 2014, the LGBT Mafia is, for different reason and for a different outcome, attempting the same type of hostile takeover.

REWRITING THE SCRIPTURES
If the militant LGBT is to be successful, they first must neutralize all those righteous scriptures about their lifestyle – Old and New Testaments – which condemn sodomy between men and lesbianism between women. Its kind of hard to sit in the pews and feel comfortable with the bible telling you your lifestyle is an abomination before a righteous God. So they are publishing bible translations a true perversions which remove the offending bible passages. Bibles like the Queen James Bible aim to meet their need. Its authors say this:

“THE QUEEN JAMES BIBLE RESOLVES ANY HOMOPHOBIC INTERPRETATIONS OF THE BIBLE, BUT THE BIBLE IS STILL FILLED WITH INEQUALITY AND EVEN CONTRADICTION THAT WE HAVE NOT ADDRESSED,” THE WEB SITE NOTES. “NO BIBLE IS PERFECT, INCLUDING THIS ONE. WE WANTED TO MAKE A BOOK FILLED WITH THE WORD OF GOD THAT NOBODY COULD USE TO INCORRECTLY CONDEMN GOD’S LGBT CHILDREN, AND WE SUCCEEDED.”

Authors like Matthew Vines, already a queer celebrity, has written “God and the Gay Christian” which seeks to completely rewrite the historic biblical position against homosexuality. Book publishers who fear the wrath of being labeled as “homophobic” by the militant LGBT Mafia, are publishing books like these which are lapped up by soft Christian church’s and rendered impotent by a decade of cotton candy preaching like of Joel Osteen and a host of other so-called ministers. Because of the spiritual deadness that exists, these tactics have been surprisingly effective. Just as Obama labels all those who oppose him and his Marxist politics as “racists”, the LGBT label all those who oppose their queer lifestyle as speaking “hate speech”, which coincidentally, is now a crime. The LGBT Mafia is ruthless when they attack, just ask Phil Robertson or the Benham Brothers. Freedom of speech only applies if you talk about the LGBT-approved narrative.

INFILTRATE THE CHURCHES
A website called GayChurch.org has been compiling facts and figures of the number of churches and denominations that now offer a LGBT-friendly service, and we found this numbers to be quite revealing.The following taken from their militant homosexual groups website

Another trend that has continued is the number of independent Catholic churches now surpasses the number of Roman Catholic parishes that are brave enough to publically pronounce their affirming stance. The latter is hardly surprising though, given the Vatican’s ongoing negative policy toward the gay and lesbian community. Hopefully we will begin to see this stance soften under Pope Frances.The five denominations of United Church of Christ, Episcopal, Lutheran ELCA, Presbyterian, and United Methodist account for 4,623 of the gay-friendly churches listed, which is close to 70% of the directory. The only change from 2012 being that the United Church of Christ has moved slightly ahead of the Episcopal churches to be the most prolific gay affirming denomination. I believe the gay marriage initiatives throughout this country and the world is a key indicator that major progress has taken place. Religious beliefs, unfortunately, are one of the major reasons why prejudice has been allowed to continue against the gay and lesbian community for so long. Indeed, it was religious dogma that gave ‘validity’ to allowing prejudice to exist in the first place. In the same manner, I believe that opening church doors, hearts, and minds will in turn, be the vehicle that helps break down these same walls. I am constantly reminded in my heart that this movement is as much to heal the Body of Christ herself (i.e. the church as a whole) – as it is for us in the gay and lesbian community.

Is it possible to be a gay Christian? If the phrase “gay Christian” refers to a person who struggles against homosexual desires and temptations – yes, a “gay Christian” is possible. However, the description “gay Christian” is not accurate for such a person, since he/she does not desire to be gay, and is struggling against the temptations. Such a person is not a “gay Christian,” but rather is simply a struggling Christian, just as there are Christians who struggle with fornication, lying, and stealing. If the phrase “gay Christian” refers to a person who actively, perpetually, and unrepentantly lives a homosexual lifestyle – no, it is not possible for such a person to truly be a Christian.

USING HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE
Obama’s legacy, whether it will be finished in this term or his third one, will be centered around 3 main things that he managed to pull off. Socialized Medicine, granting Illegal Aliens illegal citizenship, and homosexual Marriage. Obama works so hard on promoting gay marriage, you would think he was getting a commission on the marriage licenses. The LGBT Mafia is very smart, they know that they need to ram this down our throats and sell it in order pass the rest of their agenda. And on this point, they have been astonishingly successful.

The LGBT’s campaign to radically alter your perception of the sin nature of homosexuality has for years been working through music videos, pornography, and in movies and television to make you feel bad if you will not condone their sinful lifestyle. Here is bible twister and ultra-Far Left Liberal Martin Sheen going through his paces in a pathetic attempt to make the bible says things that it does not say.

Nearly every major Fortune 500 company – including Walt Disney – is on-board with promoting a sodomite lifestyle. At the Magic Kingdom, it is paraded in front of children, and if you object you’re a homophobe. A massive, active indoctrination program aimed at children is underway in the Public Schools .

In The End
The bible says that in Revelation 3, the last church before the Rapture – Laodicea – will be cold, dead, lifeless and powerless. The only thing they have an interest in is money and material wealth. In 2 Thessalonians, it talks about a great “falling away” which also will happen. In fact, both these things are happening right now, and because of that, this “hostile takeover” attempt by the LGBT Mafia will be successful. Bible believers will be marginalized, neutralized and either hauled off to a prison cell or driven out of town on a rail. We live in a great and dark age, and are watching the slow but steady fall of the Christian Church. But there is a ray of Hope is all this, and that’s the Rapture promised in Titus 2:13 and 1 Corinthians 15. And after we go, the rabid, ungodly hordes of the LGBT and others who preyed upon the Church will be left alone to have the empty shell that will remain. It will be a “form of Godliness”, but without any of the power of it. It will culminate in the apostate “whore of Babylon” church system, led by the Vatican, which the bible talks about in Revelation 17 & 18.

To the LGBT Mafia, we simply say this: “…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness”. Luke 22:53

“It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. Let me tell you something, friend, it is not love and it is not friendship if we fail to declare the whole counsel of God. It is better to be hated for telling the truth, than to be loved for telling a lie. It is impossible to find anyone in the Bible who was a power for God who did not have enemies and was not hated. It’s better to stand alone with the truth, then to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie. There is only one Gospel and Paul said, ‘If any man preaches any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Click to Source)
