70 MILLION AMERICANS TAKING MIND-ALTERING DRUGS

Exclusive: David Kupelian tells untold story of nation’s rapidly escalating drug dependence

The heroin-overdose death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has caused the media to focus, however fleetingly, on America’s drug problem.

News accounts of the Oscar-winner’s tragic demise typically reference the startling increase in heroin-related deaths in the last four to five years. The problem, reporters explain, is the vast number of Americans addicted to prescription pain meds like OxyContin, many of whom discover heroin to be both cheaper and easier to obtain than the prescription opioid drugs to which they initially became addicted.

That’s accurate as far as it goes. But by following the trail further, we arrive at a place far more shocking and consequential. We discover that not only has the traditional distinction between illegal “street drugs” and legal “therapeutic prescription drugs” become so blurred as to be almost nonexistent, but between America’s twin drug epidemics – one illegal, the other legal – well over 70 million Americans are using mind-altering drugs. And that number doesn’t include abusers of alcohol, which adds an additional 60 million Americans. So we’re really talking about 130 million strung-out Americans. How is this possible?

Of course, most of the drug news we’ve heard lately has been about pot. It started with medical marijuana, with state after state successfully defying the federal ban. Then on Jan. 1, flat-out legalization took center stage, when Colorado and Washington opened their doors to exhilarated pot-smokers, while numerous other states – from Alaska, Oregon and California in the west to Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Washington, D.C., in the east – announced plans to push for legalization in the coming months.

As a result, stock prices for cannabis companies soared (“The demand for marijuana is insatiable,” says one entrepreneur, “you have a feeding frenzy for the birth of a new industry”), the New York City-based publication “High Times” announced a new private-equity fund to “raise $100 million over the next two years to invest in cannabis-related businesses,” and ad agencies geared up to support “an industry estimated to already be generating revenues in the billions of dollars.”

The dramatic change in Americans’ attitude is reflected in a recent CNN poll headlined “Support for legal marijuana soaring.”

Somehow, in all the hoopla, it apparently doesn’t register that pot use lowers the IQ of young people. A massive, four-decade study published in 2012 by the National Academy of Sciences, titled“Persistent cannabis users show neuropsychological decline from childhood to midlife,” followed more than 1,000 subjects from birth until age 38! The researchers’ core finding? Repeated marijuana use by teenagers lowers their IQ – permanently.

Yet, according to a 2010 study by the federal Department of Health and Human Services, over 22 million Americans use illegal drugs,comprising marijuana/hashish, cocaine (including crack), heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants and prescription-type psychiatric and opioid drugs used without a prescription. And of those, fully half admit to driving on the public roadways under the influence of drugs!

Of course, when we think of driving “under the influence,” our minds turn to alcohol, so fasten your seatbelts: In 2010, nearly one-quarter of all Americans aged 12 and up participated in binge drinking, about 58.6 million people, and heavy drinking was reported for 16.9 million people. And an estimated 11.4 percent of persons 12 or older drove under the influence of alcohol at least once in the past year.

Bottom line, according to HHS: “In an average year 30 million Americans drive drunk [and] 10 million drive impaired by illicit drugs.”

‘Fastest growing drug problem’

So with more than 22 million Americans stupefied on illegal drugs and another 58 million with a serious drinking problem – that’s 80 million souls – and 40 million of them driving under the influence of intoxicants, the nation undeniably suffers from a massive “substance-abuse” problem.

But there is another parallel drug problem, the devastation of which is arguably just as severe and detrimental to American society as that involving illegal drugs and alcohol abuse – and some would say it’s actually worse.

And that is the astonishingly vast, and rapidly increasing, number of people taking medically prescribed but poorly understood, mind-altering psychiatric drugs. Indeed, today one in five adults – approximately 50 million Americans – take prescription psychiatric drugs.

Ironically, after marijuana (which is rapidly becoming legal), the most-abused drugs in America are prescription drugs, obtained and used “non-medically,” that is, without a prescription from a doctor.

As revealed in a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in one recent year “approximately 27,000 unintentional drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States, one death every 19 minutes.”

“Prescription drug abuse,” announced the CDC, “is the fastest growing drug problem in the United States.”

The skyrocketing rate of drug-overdose death rates “has been driven,” says the report, “by increased use of a class of prescription drugs called opioid analgesics” – drugs like hydrocodone (brand names Norco, Vicodin), hydromorphone (Dilaudid, Exalgo), oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet) and morphine (Astramorph, Avinza).

“Opioid analgesics suppress your perception of pain,” explains WebMD, “and calm your emotional response to pain by reducing the number of pain signals sent by the nervous system and the brain’s reaction to those pain signals.”

For the last decade, “more overdose deaths have involved opioid analgesics than heroin and cocaine combined,” reports the CDC. In addition, “for every unintentional overdose death related to an opioid analgesic, nine persons are admitted for substance abuse treatment, 35 visit emergency departments, 161 report drug abuse or dependence, and 461 report nonmedical uses of opioid analgesics.” In other words, it’s an epidemic.

America’s traditional drug paradigm has long been something like this: On the one hand is the respectable, legal, medical world where enlightened doctors prescribe their patients wonder drugs that relieve their symptoms and make them feel more comfortable – OxyContin, anti-anxiety drugs (Valium, Xanax), sleeping pills, stimulants, mood stabilizers and, more recently, marijuana, hallucinogens and so forth.

On the other hand is the sleazy, criminal world of drug pushers who supply low-life users and addicts with drugs to satiate their habits, make them feel better and relieve their stresses, troubles and anxieties – drugs like OxyContin and other illegally obtained psych meds, marijuana, stimulants, cocaine, hallucinogens and so forth.

If the distinction between legal and illegal seems disturbingly indistinct and fluid – in some ways even unreal – keep reading, because it gets much more bizarre.

Creating ‘zombies’

A recent news story originating at The Fix, which features coverage on addiction and recovery, had this interesting headline:

“America’s Number One Prescription Sleep Aid Could Trigger ‘Zombies,’ Murder and Other Disturbing Behavior.”

The report includes true stories of murderers and other offenders who had taken the popular sleeping pill Ambien – classified as a “hypnotic” drug – and relates how their defense lawyers successfully argued that adverse drug effects from Ambien should be considered a mitigating factor. The drug reached national notoriety in 2006 when then-Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., had a bizarre nighttime car crash, telling police he was running late for a vote (which actually had occurred six hours earlier) and that, because he took Ambien, he had no recollection of the night’s events.

The current Ambien label reads as follows (see Page 20):

What is the most important information I should know about AMBIEN?

After taking AMBIEN, you may get up out of bed while not being fully awake and do an activity that you do not know you are doing. The next morning, you may not remember that you did anything during the night. You have a higher chance for doing these activities if you drink alcohol or take other medicines that make you sleepy with AMBIEN. Reported activities include:

  • driving a car (“sleep-driving”)
  • making and eating food
  • talking on the phone
  • having sex
  • sleep-walking

Let’s be clear: This is not fine print about “rare adverse events” (negative side effects that occur in less than one in 1,000 people taking a medication). These are instructions given to users of Ambien describing what they should expect.

So, drugging people into becoming sleepwalking, sleep-driving, sleep-eating, sleep-talking and sleep-sexing zombies with no memory of what they have done while in a hypnotic trance, this is a good thing? Really?

In case that went by too fast (or in the event you were on Ambien and slept through it), we are talking about “sleep-driving”! The frequency of motor vehicle accidents caused by people on Ambien is reportedly why the FDA is now recommending women take lower doses of such sleep aids, which were prescribed for Americans 60 million times in 2011.

School shooters

Although psychiatric drugs take various forms – antipsychotics, antidepressants, hallucinogens, mood stabilizers, stimulants, anxiolytics (anti-anxiety drugs), hypnotics (for inducing sleep) – by far the most prescribed psych meds in America are antidepressants.

In fact – and this will perhaps be hard to swallow – according to the CDC, in 2010 more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants were written for Americans.

Of all the disturbing side effects of antidepressants – and the irony here is profound – the most notorious is that this ubiquitous medication for depressed people can cause the user to want to kill himself. Indeed, every single antidepressant sold in America today, regardless of manufacturer or brand, bears a mandatory “black box” warning label – the FDA’s most serious drug warning – of “increased risks of suicidal thinking and behavior, known as suicidality, in young adults ages 18 to 24.”

Sadly, among U.S. soldiers and veterans, there are on average 22 suicides per day, and astute physicians have been asking how big a role psychiatric drugs might be playing. After all, as Time reported in 2008, “about 20,000 troops in Afghanistan and Iraq were on such medications,” roughly half on antidepressants and the other half on Ambien and similar sleeping pills. Add to that the fact that antidepressants’ suicidality warning label is aimed at “young adults ages 18 to 24″ – the core age group for the military – and the only reasonable conclusion is that the stresses and traumas of war, along with the hazards of the drugs, can be a lethal combination.

Even more ominous is the fact that, where there are suicidal thoughts, homicidal thoughts may not be far behind, especially in a particularly deranged and angry person – which brings us to one of the most disturbing correlations between psychiatric drugs and violent behavior.

It is well documented that most perpetrators of school shootings and mass murders in our modern era were either on – or just recently coming off of – psychiatric medications, most commonly antidepressants. Hundreds of other criminal cases are documented here.

Drugging the kids at school

While we stress over our kids’ pot-smoking and binge drinking, at the same time we force millions of them – between four and nine million by most estimates, mostly boys – to take Ritalin or similar dangerous psycho-stimulant drugs for a medical condition that didn’t officially exist a generation ago, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

According to the federal Drug Enforcement Administration, Ritalin, a trade name for Methylphenidate, is “a Schedule II substance, [with] a high potential for abuse and produces many of the same effects as cocaine or the amphetamines.” Indeed, other Schedule II substances include cocaine, amphetamines, opium, methadone, oxycodone, morphine, codeine and barbiturates.

“The controlled substances in this schedule,” the DEA adds, “have a high abuse potential with severe psychological or physical dependence liability, but have accepted medical use in the U.S.”

Yet because of disturbing evidence – including dozens of suspicious deaths – that Ritalin and similar stimulants are harmful to the heart, members of a federal advisory panel announced in 2006 that they “wanted to slow the explosive growth in the drug’s use.”

Alarmingly, Dr. Steven Nissen, a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic and FDA panel member, said, ”I must say that I have grave concerns about the use of these drugs and grave concerns about the harm they may cause,” reported the New York Times. Added another panel member, Curt Furberg, a professor of public health at Wake Forest University, “Nowhere else in the world are 10 percent of 10-year-old boys diagnosed and treated for ADD,” according to Time magazine.

Despite twin controversies over the drugs’ proven dangers and their wild over-prescription, the CDC reports a radical escalation in recent years.

Incredibly, 19 percent of high school-age boys in the U.S. are being diagnosed with ADHD and about 10 percent are currently being prescribed drugs for it, while 10 percent of high school-age girls are being likewise diagnosed.

“Those are astronomical numbers. I’m floored,” says Dr. William Graf, a pediatric neurologist in New Haven and Yale medical professor, according to the New York Times. “Mild symptoms are being diagnosed so readily, which goes well beyond the disorder and beyond the zone of ambiguity to pure enhancement of children who are otherwise healthy.” Adds CDC director Dr. Thomas R. Frieden, “Unfortunately, misuse appears to be growing at an alarming rate.”

Many more such examples of completely out-of-control psychiatric drug prescribing and use could be cited here, but focusing on just these few – and forthrightly acknowledging their disastrous and often heartbreaking results – should at least demonstrate that America has a serious legal drug problem.

‘Brain disorders’ on every street corner

Although there are countless enlightened and gifted psychiatrists, overall psychiatry has been institutionally transformed over time from a quest to facilitate the patient’s self-understanding and healing (via traditional talk therapy) into a massive drug-dispensing bureaucracy. A new paradigm has evolved, characterized by an ever-expanding repertory of “personality disorders” and “mental illnesses” all in need of drug “therapy.”

Many psychiatrists are openly rebelling against the latest version of their own diagnostic “bible,” the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” or DSM, published by the American Psychiatric Association, whose most recent fifth edition (DSM-V) pathologizes – that is, labels as “disorders” – behaviors and conditions once considered just part of life, while de-pathhologizing conditions that are obviously disordered.

Likewise, Americans’ almost religious belief in medical and scientific experts – according to which psychiatric “priests” tell troubled souls, “You have a brain disorder, it’s not your fault, take this wonder drug and it’ll heal you” – is disintegrating under its own weight.

Consider, for example, the orthodox mental-health “dogma” that depression involves a physical problem with the sufferer’s brain chemistry – a notion that, admittedly, is comforting to patients who are thereby absolved of any responsibility for their condition. But today, with literally tens of millionsof Americans taking antidepressants, that assurance – echoed by the National Institute of Mental Health when it proclaims “depressive illnesses are disorders of the brain” – is recognized by more and more people to be a logical impossibility. After all, it would mean that one in four middle-aged American women (23 percent of all those 40 to 59) have organic brain disease – physically defective brains. That’s obviously absurd.

Thus it is that ever more doctors, articles and books – like acclaimed psychiatrist and psychopharmacologist David Healy’s “Pharmageddon” and psychotherapist Gary Greenberg’s “The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry” ( summarized recently in the New Yorker) – are now exposing the delusion that underlies much of modern drug-based psychiatry.

All of this is not to deny that psychiatric medications can have a genuine value; there are some people – a relative few – who, very simply, really require them. In fact, one of the reasons we tolerate the absurd overuse of psychiatric medications in America is our deep-down realization that we need these drugs to control, sedate and manage the relatively few people who truly need them. We also desire a better solution for the severely afflicted than the stark asylums of yesteryear that warehoused hundreds and sometimes thousands of seriously disturbed people. And also, very frankly, we would rather not have anything to do with truly crazy characters, and so we kind of appreciate the fact that there are medications to chemically control them.

But none of that justifies the creation of a nation state wherein a massive part of the population – including much of the functional, productive middle class – is dependent on mind-altering drugs to get through life.

The desire for drug profits – combined with the profound blindness that results from a de factoatheistic orientation for healing human minds and souls – have taken our nation to a bad place. When our “healers” do not understand human nature, when morality and sin don’t even enter into our thinking about how our mental-emotional problems originate and are fed, when we completely ignore the reality of God’s laws (which reliably results in falling into the grip of dark forces), we compensate by creating our own quasi-”religious” beliefs and “priests” (experts), with their own peculiar “sacraments” and “salvation.” All of which leads us, individually and as a nation, ever more into darkness, rather than into the light.

‘Spotless minds’

Looking to the future, it is shaping up to be – if we keep going in this direction – indistinguishable from the most terrifying science fiction thrillers.

“How Scientists Are Learning to Shape Our Memory.” That’s the headline of a recent Popular Science article, ominously subtitled, “The next treatment for trauma could be spotless minds.”

Noting that painful memories – “roadside bombs, childhood abuse, car accidents” – have the potential to “shape (and damage) us for a lifetime,” the article cites new studies claiming “we’re on the verge of erasing and even rewriting memories.”

For example, since “both PTSD and addiction disorders hinge on memories that can trigger problematic behaviors,” current research predicts future drugs that will cure such conditions by simply eliminating the problem memories: “Several studies have found chemical compounds that can be used to subdue or even delete memories in mice (and maybe someday in people). In June, a report led by an Emory University researcher showed that SR-8993, a drug that acts on the brain’s opioid receptors, can prevent a fear memory from forming.”

The article ends by acknowledging, “The idea of scientists manipulating memory does, naturally, sound a bit creepy. But it also points to some possible good: treatment for millions of people tormented by real memories.”

Meanwhile, groups like the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, or MAPS, are lobbying hard to legalize all of the psychedelic drugs of the 1960s – not just marijuana, but LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, mescaline and so on, as well as the more modern “rave” drug Ecstasy, or MDMA.

“Psychedelic-legalization supporters say that the American public has been misinformed about the dangers of psychedelic drug use,” claims MAPS, “and … like marijuana, psychedelics have a medicinal benefit that may be a treatment option for groups suffering from mental health and psychological conditions such as autism, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia and alcoholism.

“A 2011 study from the Center for Autism at the University of California-Los Angeles examined the psychedelic drug MDMA – ecstasy – and found that persons with autism using the drug often report an increase in socialization and strong feelings of empathy that last even after the drug has worn off.”

So as America approaches the final stage of metamorphosis into a totally godless and drug-dependent state, legal and illegal merge, the border line disappears, just as the line between drugged and normal, and between sanity and insanity, becomes increasingly blurred. Finally, all becomes drug-induced madness wherein man, cut off from true life and direction and meaning from within, becomes his own stupefied god.

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”– 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 KJV

CHRISTIAN GRAMMY WINNER REVEALS WHY SHE PURPOSEFULLY DECIDED NOT TO ATTEND THE AWARD SHOW

At least one Grammy winner made a decisive choice not to attend Sunday night’s award show. In a post on her official Facebook page, gospel singer Mandisa offered some “brutal honesty” in explaining why she decided to stay home rather than accept the awards in person — and much of her choice centered upon her faith.

“At 4 p.m. yesterday, I was not glammed up in a fancy gown, sitting in my seat at the Grammy Award Pre-Telecast, listening to the man reading the nominee list for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) Performance, Best CCM Song, and Best CCM Album,” she wrote Monday. “I was rockin’ some purple sweats, sitting in front of my computer, watching the live stream online.”

Mandisa went on to express her surprise at finding out she won two awards — a reaction that was characterized by “utter shock and [an] immediate flood of tears.”

While she was grateful and honored to be nominated in the first place, Mandisa explained that she didn’t feel that the Grammys provided a positive environment for her at this time in her life.

Among her reasons for not attending, the singer admitted that she has struggled lately as a Christian living in a world filled with temptation.

“Yes, both times I have gone to the Grammys I have witnessed performances I wish I could erase from my memory, and yes, I fast forwarded through several performances this year; but my reason is not because of them, it’s because of me,” Mandisa wrote. “I have been struggling with being in the world, not of it lately. I have fallen prey to the alluring pull of flesh, pride, and selfish desires quite a bit recently.”

She said that putting herself in an environment that celebrates some of the elements she’s trying to avoid was “risky,” so she decided to stay home, as she is trying to renew her mind “to become the Heavenly Father-centered, completely satisfied with Jesus, and Holy Spirit-led woman” she once was.

While she didn’t get specific about the issues she’s struggling with, Mandisa fully admitted that she’s been hitting some spiritual road bumps.

“Perhaps being alone with Him as my name was announced was protecting myself from where my flesh would have tried to drag me had I been up on that stage,” she added. “It gave me time to focus. With what I do for a living, and the doors that have opened for me to sing about Jesus on mainstream platforms, I take the phrase from John 15:19, ‘be in the world, not of it’ seriously.”

Though she believes God doesn’t want believers to separate themselves from the rest of the world and to avoid sharing their faith, Mandisa highlighted that it is important for Christians to speak differently so that they “shine” and stand apart from others.

The singer also cited that she will be on the road for much of the next 100 days, that she doesn’t enjoy the scrutiny surrounding what she’s wearing and how she looks and that she assumed she might not be victorious in the categories she was nominated in as her reasons for staying home.

But Mandisa isn’t entirely closed off to attending the award show sometime in the future.

“So yeah, should I ever be nominated again, and I’m feeling up to it, I’ll go,” she added. “I recognize that I may feel a bit like an alien in a strange land, but Jesus, friend of sinners, felt that way and still managed to shine…by His Holy Spirit, so can I!”

Christian Singer Walks Out on Grammys After ‘Satanic’ Performances

Katy Perry conducts bizarre witchcraft ceremony during event

Popular Christian gospel singer Natalie Grant walked out of the Grammys after witnessing a series of performances that even the mainstream entertainment media admitted were occult in nature.

Grant, who was nominated for two Grammys last night, tweeted her excitement upon arriving at the event but soon made it clear that she left early because what she witnessed conflicted with her Christian beliefs, stating, “We left the Grammy’s early. I’ve many thoughts, most of which are probably better left inside my head. But I’ll say this: I’ve never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I’ve never been more sure of the path I’ve chosen.”

Although she remained coy on the exact circumstances, Grant was probably referring to Katy Perry, who was surrounded by demons as she danced around an upside down broomstick before being encircled by fire during a performance of her song “Dark Horse”. Perry wore clothing bearing an illuminated Knights Templar cross.

Even E! Online tweeted that Perry’s performance resembled “actual witchcraft”.

However, Grant could also have been offended by the mass gay wedding ceremony which took place during a performance by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Not to be outdone, Beyonce and Jay-Z attempted to up the ante by performing a risqué duet which provoked fury from parents who complained that the spectacle was too explicit for children. Jay-Z’s acceptance speech, during which he said, “I would like to thank God… a little,” also prompted claims that the rapper was invoking the Illuminati.

The International Business Times reacted by claiming that Perry, Beyonce and Jay-Z’s antics were merely an example of the Grammys, “trolling Illuminati conspiracy theorists.”

Watch analysis of how the Grammys were yet another ceremony to the entertainment industry’s occult leanings below via Mark Dice. Katy Perry’s best efforts at summoning Beelzebub appear at the end.

Will Yahweh/God Bless the United States by the Blogging Hounds

gods_judgement

I woke up early this morning asking myself and Yahweh/God a question. The present state of this country troubles me and I know that Yahweh is not happy with us. If you were Elohim/God would you bless the United States, when we the people are turning our backs on Yahweh/Yeshua and trashing him with these sins?

Some of the ways that the United States has turned her back on God are described below.

Ceration-vs-Evolution

1 – We have taken the God of the Bible completely out of our schools.

2 – We have 0utlawed prayer in schools and replaced Yahweh with secular  humanism and evolution.

3 – We have been fed a lie that we were accidentally created in the image of an ape, and not in the image of God.   Genesis 1:26-27

4 –  It is considered perfectly alright to acknowledge Allah, Buddha, Satan, witchcraft, paganism, atheism in schools, but not the God of the Bible.  Exodus 20:3-6

5 – It’s normal and totally legal to take the lives of unborn children under the law of this land;  however it’s murder, in the eyes of the God of the Bible.  Exodus 20:13

gosnell

6 – Drug & alcohol addiction, pharmakeia, sorcery and witchcraft have replaced the God of all Creation in idolatry at it’s highest form.     Revelation 9:21 and 18:23

pharmakeia

7 – Homosexuality and same sex marriage are unnatural and abhorrent in the Eyes of Yahweh.  He has never changed His mind on this unholy union as He is a God who “changes not”.   Leviticus 18,  Romans 1:18-32, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8

lotfleescity

8 – The apostate church denies the basis truths of the Bible as listed below…

harlotbeast

a) Salvation alone through Yeshua the Messiah who is the only way to Yahweh, the Father, is no longer a doctrinal belief.  John 14:6, Acts 4:12

b) They are denying that the reality of eternal punishment for sin is a very literal hell.  Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20: 11-15

c) They tolerate the breaking of the Commandments of God.

9 – The United States has turned it’s back on the nation of Israel by forcing her to give up land for peace to a hostile enemy who has always tried to destroy her.  This is land that was given as a promise from God in a covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Genesis 13: 14-17, Genesis 26:3-5, Genesis 35:9-12 

abraham

From all these sins that have been listed above, and many more not mentioned in this article, we beg to ask this question:  Is there any way that we can stop this downward spiral toward Yahweh’s judgement on the US because of all these sins that we have committed against Him?

 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.   2 Chronicles 7: 13-15

 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”   

John 3:16-21

repentance-is-u-turning

Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For there is no partiality with God.  

Romans 2:1-11

Final thought for Today: Your decision concerning your spiritual condition  with Yahweh/God/Jesus/Yeshua,  will determine where you will live in Eternity

yeshuathelion

 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LordAnd if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; for the Lord our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the people through whom we passed. And the Lord drove out from before us all the people, including the Amorites who dwelt in the land.

We also will serve the Lord, for He is our God.”But Joshua said to the people, “You cannot serve the Lord, for He is a holy God. He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins. If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, then He will turn and do you harm and consume you, after He has done you good.”And the people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve the Lord!”So Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord for yourselves, to serve Him.” And they said, “We are witnesses!” 

“Now therefore,” he said, “put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel.” And the people said to Joshua, “The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!”   Joshua 24:14-24

Survival Food for Uncertain Times

GOLDEN DAWN, ALEISTER CROWLEY AND AMERICA AS THE NEW ATLANTIS

Aleister-Crowley-32KB

As the economic condition of Greece declines, the neo- Nazi Golden Dawn party is rising in power and has plans to create cells around the world. The Golden Dawn has a Swastika-like symbol and it has established links with British neo-Nazis and has offices n Germany, Australia, Canada and the U.S. Golden Dawn is now Greece’s fastest growing political force. The Golden Dawn in Greece is descended from the same Golden Dawn that was in operation when Adolph Hitler rose to power under similar economic conditions. The Satanist and British intelligence agent Aleister Crowley was a member of Golden Dawn. Golden Dawn members believed they were in contact with a race of “Secret Chiefs”: superhuman beings and entities who were guiding the destiny of the world towards a New World Order, through groups like the Theosophical Society and the Great White Brotherhood.

It is impossible to understand what is happening in America and the world today without fully comprehending the beliefs, organizational structure, and power of these occult secret societies like the Golden Dawn. The dynamics of these secret societies can only be understood within the context of a multi-dimensional world, along with the power, forces, and entities that come from what has been termed the Fourth Dimension, invisible realm, or what some call the spiritual world.

Crowley called himself the “Great Beast 666,” who is the Antichrist in the Book of Revelation. The women he selected to be used sexually he called “Scarlett Women,” which is a direct reference to Babylon the Great Harlot in Revelation. Crowley was deliberately mocking the God of the Bible, not because he did not believe in God, but because he believed Lucifer was God and that is who Crowley chose to serve. When America was established Sir Francis Bacon was the head of the occult society known as the Rosicrucians. Bacon planned for America to be the “New Atlantis” and the head of the New World Order and wrote about this in the 1600s. It is alleged that Benjamin Franklin was a Rosicrucian and a Satanist, and that he participated in satanic orgies and rituals, such as the Hell Fire Club’s in England and France. There exists a secret destiny for America and Franklin played a key role in it. Franklin was also a member of the Order of the Quest and apparently supported Sir Francis Bacon’s secret plan for America to be the New Atlantis. The United States was intended to be an Illuminati Utopia and the Illuminati, as well as the Golden Dawn stemmed from the Rosicrucians.

The leaders of these groups were being guided by entities from another dimension, some of whom would later be called “The Secret Chiefs of the Third Order.” In the 1800s the British Ghost/Fabian Society was founded, along with the earlier Royal Society for Psychical Research which flowed from the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. John Dee, one of the first Freemasons, had a founding role in the Royal Society and was a Rosicrucian who promoted America as the New Atlantis. William Wescott, who was once the head of the Golden Dawn, helped to form the Society for Psychical Research whose leaders practiced “astral visualization,” an early form of “remote viewing.”

The Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in California was a branch of the Society of Psychical Research, also known as the Ghost Society. The Stanford Research Institute (SRI) was part of the MKULTRA program and gave the novelist Ken Kesey, then a student at Stanford, LSD. The SRI was involved in mind control experiments, the space program, and remote viewing. Astronaut Edgar Mitchell ran a department at Stanford to experiment with psychic power.

The deeper teachings behind the Society of Psychical Research came from “entities” and from the Great White Brotherhood. The Russian occult teacher, Madame Blavatsky, a Rosicrucian, supernaturally received a plan from Atlantis about the creation of a New World Order. Both the Nazis and Blavatsky traveled to Tibet, where the Great White Brotherhood supposedly lived. Tibet is the general location of Shamballah, a mythical paradise on Earth, and Atlantis was supposed to have been connected to Shamballah. In one of the Dark Night movies Batman goes into the mountains of Tibet to be trained by the masters.

It is no accident that the Golden Dawn originally came from the Rosicrucians and has risen again in Greece. Nor is it coincidental that the Rosicrucian leader Sir Francis Bacon planned for America to be the New Atlantis and the center of the New World Order. This New World Order, which the Bible predicted in the account of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, was the fountainhead for the ancient mystery religions. In the Book of Revelation we read the account of the establishment of the New World Order through the efforts of the Antichrist and the False Prophet, intended to be the head of a coming one world religion. What allows the Antichrist to come to power is the release of a very powerful supernatural force called the Great Apostasy.

The Great Apostasy is a kind of cosmic downloading from the fourth dimension of high-level spiritual deception and occult technology carried out by Lucifer and his armies. We are seeing the initial phases of the Great Apostasy now, but it will soon accelerate. The occult rituals and practices of secret societies are not just irrational pagan ceremonies. Occult rituals involve the merger of the occult and science. The rituals open very real portals in the fourth dimension which allow “entities” or demonic powers to move through a gateway into our physical world. Babylon was called the “gate of the gods,” and was built for the purpose of creating an interdimensional portal.

Throughout Mankind’s history the power of God has come down upon the Earth in great force. Although the forces are different, there is a parallel truth at work. Occult rituals invoke demonic power. Releasing the power of God requires rituals, if you will, of a different nature. The power is not in the ritual. The power of God is released when men and women come into synchronization with the law of God, through faith. This is why a Christian church that has departed from the truth of God’s Word is powerless, because it is out of synchronization with the laws of God. Since this kind of church knows that it is powerless, or naked, it must cover its nakedness by clothing itself in counterfeit power. The fabric of this counterfeit power is human psychological and motivational theory.

Those who know how to access real supernatural power through occult rituals laugh at a church whose power consists of positive motivation. The reason they laugh is because they are operating with supernatural power and they know it is real. The primary reason that powerful and dark spiritual forces have been released in America and the world is because of a spiritual vacuum, or a “windswept house.” All spiritual power, like the laws of physics, works according to laws.

A simple way to understand this is to look at the account of David when he encountered the Nephilim giant Goliath. King Saul and the armies of Israel were highly trained warriors. Yet they were powerless in the face of Goliath, the champion of the Philistine army. The reason for their powerlessness is that they were relying only on human psychological and motivational strength. Goliath was literally superhuman; his DNA came from the B’nai Elohim mating with human women. The balance of power only changed when David stepped onto the battlefield to engage Goliath. David was accessing supernatural power from God, not mere human power; by doing so he defeated Goliath.

That supernatural power has been unleashed continually throughout the history of Mankind. In the Book of Acts the disciples are clothed with supernatural power from on high. It is through this supernatural power that the disciples turned the world upside down. In America, where we are facing crises from every direction, all human efforts are failing! Unless the present direction of America is changed, America as we know it will soon be gone. What is needed at this critical juncture in human history? Is there the possibility of a turning point? Or are we trapped in a completely fatalistic universe in which we, like actors in a movie, are forced to act out the script?

There are many people who deny the possibility of change because of what they perceive as Bible prophecy being unfolded. There is no question prophecy is being unfolded; it is everywhere around us. In one sense they are correct; a prophetic program is in place and it will unfold as planned.

However, if you look at this from the perspective of God, assuming you believe He exists, the question has to be changed. You are now looking at reality and the prophetic program from God’s perspective. He is outside time and space, so He is looking at our reality from a completely different viewpoint. From the perspective of a finite mind it would appear to be a contradiction to suggest that you can change things and at the same time believe that the prophetic program cannot be changed.

The prophetic program cannot be changed within the context of space and time. But, living inside of time and space and having a finite mind, you do not have the ability to see the prophetic program unfold from the dimension outside of time and space, where God exists. What appears to be a conflict is not a conflict. You have two people watching the law of God unfold, in what is known as the prophetic program. One person is human and he or she views it from the perspective of a three-dimensional world. The other Person is God, who views it from an infinite mind, capable of processing numerous dimensions simultaneously, outside of time and space.

We are in a time of extra-dimensional supernatural energies and soon there will be a quantum acceleration of Man’s ability to think and to act. You were chosen from the beginning of time to be here for such a time as this.

The End of April: A Time of Human Sacrifice

baal

Why do we often witness tragedy and senseless deaths during the second half of April? The list of violent events that occurred during this time period is simply staggering. Here are some of them:

  • April 19, 1993 – Waco Massacre: An FBI assault lead to the burning down of the compound of a sect named Branch Davidians, killing 76 men, women and children.
  • April 19, 1995 –  Oklahoma City bombing – 168 people killed.
  • April 20,  1999 – Columbine High School Massacre – 13 people murdered, 21 injured.
  • April 16, 2007 – Virginia Tech Massacre – 32 killed; 17 injured.
  • April 16, 2013 – Boston Marathon Explosions – 3 killed; 107 injured.
  • April 18, 2013 – Fertilizer plant explosion, Texas – 5-15 killed (Notice that this event occurred almost exactly 20 years after the Waco Massacre, which is in the same area. Also, on April 16, 1947, a ship loaded with ammonium nitrate docked at the Port of Texas City and erupted in flames, causing a massive explosion that killed approximately 576 people).

There were many other violent occurrences that happened during that time period. In fact, CNN published an article in 2011 titled What is it about mid-April and violence in America?, discussing the events that occur in Mid-April. Sadly, the article only bashed “conspiracy theorists” and basically said “If you look for answers further than mass media, you are crazy and potentially dangerous”. However, two years later, the violent trend continues.

Is it all a coincidence? For those in the know, there are no such thing as coincidences. In 2011, I wrote an article about the death of Bin Laden, announced between April 30th and May 1st (see Why the Death of the Man Who Was Not Behind 9/11 Was Announced on May 1st). In that article, I briefly described the ritualistic significance of May 1st (May Day) and its relation to a god that is still important for to the occult elite: Baal.

The Cult of Baal Never Disappeared

molech

Throughout many centuries and across many civilizations, the second half of April has always been a time of blood sacrifice. The worship of Baal took many names (Enlil, Molech, etc.) and spread across several civilizations. Being a sun god and a god of fertility, rituals celebrating Baal took place after the vernal equinox (a time of rebirth) and often involved human sacrifice.

“The cult of Baal celebrated annually his death and resurrection as a part of the Canaanite fertility rituals. These ceremonies often included human sacrifice and temple prostitution.”
– Baal, Encyclopedia Mythica

Although the observance of these rituals was sometimes condemned by religious movements, it never truly disappeared.

“The religion of the god Baal was widely accepted among the ancient Jews, and although it was put down at times, it was never permanently stamped out. Kings and other royalty of the ten Biblical tribes worshiped the god. The ordinary people ardently worshiped this sun god too because their prosperity depended on the productivity of their crops and livestock. The god’s images were erected on many buildings. Within the religion there appeared to be numerous priests and various classes of devotees. During the ceremonies they wore appropriate robes. The ceremonies included burning incense, and offering burnt sacrifices, occasionally consisting of human victims. The officiating priests danced around the altars, chanting frantically and cutting themselves with knives to inspire the attention and compassion of the god.”
– Ibid.

As a sun god, Baal’s worship involved human sacrifice and fire. Today, in the occult-elite ruled America, this time period often equals fire (or gun fire) and death. These rites were even mentioned in the Bible:

“They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal–something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind.”
– Jeremiah 19:5

From the Babylonian, Assyrian and Phoenician civilizations of the Middle-East (their Mystery religions come from the same point origin), the cult of Baal spread to distant civilizations, such as the Celts, who observed Beltane rituals on May 1st (Beltane originates from the word “Baal”). While the observance of Baal rituals differed from one civilization to another, they were nevertheless grounded in the same occult concepts of numerology and sacrifice. In other words, they were all tapping into the same magickal knowledge.

Today’s occult elite still observes these rites, but with one major difference: They are now carried out on unsuspecting civilians and spread across the world through mass media. Fed and amplified by the fear and trauma of the masses, these mega-rituals are seen by all, but only celebrated by the occult elite. More than ever, we are dealing with Black Magick.

Other sites dedicated to occult numerology have published information emphasizing the importance of this time period.

“April 19 – May 1 – Blood Sacrifice To The Beast, a most critical 13-day period. Fire sacrifice is required on April 19.

April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual day relating to fire – the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil). This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some very important historic events occur on this day.”
– Occult Holidays and Sabbaths, Cutting Edge

Another article briefly describes the elements required to carry out the elite’s mega-rituals.

“The human sacrifice required during many of these occult dates needs to contain the following elements, each one of which is exaggerated to the highest possible degree:

1. Trauma, stress, and mental anguish, sheer terror
2. The final act in the drama should be destruction by a fire; preferably a conflagration.
3. People must die as human sacrifices, especially children, since The Darkness views younger human sacrifice as most desirable”
– Advent of Deception

Of course, not every event that occurs during that time period is related to Illuminati human sacrifice. However, most of the events mentioned above fit right in the mega-ritual “criteria” checklists. If you look carefully at the facts surrounding each one of these events, you might conclude that they were either carried out by government officials or blamed on mind-controlled patsies. Most of these events are absurdly gratuitous, generating even more trauma and causing people to wonder “what kind of evil people would do such a thing?” Unfortunately, these evil people rule us, and the same events are then used to further extremist political agendas.
The powers that be have become masters at combining pragmatic politics with occult rituals.

In Conclusion

Those who know about occult calendars enter the second half of April wondering if something horrific is about to happen. Sadly, every few years, it does, and the public is traumatized with a senseless and violent event. Almost every time, a closer look at the event leads to strange and suspicious facts, and, more often than not, hints towards an inside job. While many will ascribe the occurrence of these events during the end of April to coincidence, the fact remains:  Mass violent events involving death and fire happen regularly during the same time period that is occultly dedicated to Baal, who is worshipped through fire and human sacrifice. Whether this is all done on purpose or just the result of some crazy universal synchronicity, the fact is still there and cannot be disputed.
Incidentally, the compound that was burned down in the 1993 Waco Massacre was named Mount Carmel Center. In the Bible, Mount Carmel was where Elijah defied the prophets of Baal, challenging them to pray to Baal until he lit a fire in front of them. No fire was lit. Was the fire at Mount Carmel Center a symbolic revenge of Baal?
 
 

“Legal high” Benzo Fury may harbor addiction risk

benzo fury

A party drug available over the Internet and often taken by young people in Britain and the United States may harbor unknown risks because it has both stimulant and hallucinogenic effects, scientists said on Tuesday.

Researchers who analyzed the effect of the drug called “Benzo Fury” on the brains of rats found it had similar effects to some illegal drugs such as amphetamines or cocaine, which can cause hallucinations and are also addictive.

“It’s in the combination of these stimulant and hallucinogenic properties that the greatest danger lies,” Jolanta Opacka-Juffry of Britain’s University of Roehampton, who led the study, said.

Benzo Fury is one of the most popular “legal highs” in Britain and is also sold in the United States, the experts who conducted the study said. Such drugs are mostly synthetic laboratory-designed substances that imitate the effects of illegal drugs such as cannabis, amphetamine or ecstasy.

Experts who presented a study of Benzo Fury at a British Neuroscience Association conference in London said it appears to be fairly easy to buy via the Internet, at music festivals and in clubs – priced at around 10 pounds ($15.35) a pill.

Speaking at the conference, Opacka-Juffry said it showed how the active ingredient in Benzo Fury, known as 5-APB, behaves a bit like amphetamine – in other words like a stimulant with addictive potential, and like a hallucinogen, which effects brain receptors of the hormone serotonin.

“Pure hallucinogens are not addictive as such because they do not cause an increase in dopamine release, unlike amphetamine or cocaine,” she said. “But Benzo Fury with its mixed properties is a trap as its repetitive use for the hallucinogenic effects could lead to dependence.”

She said its effect on serotonin receptors also suggested it may lead to high blood pressure by causing constriction of the blood vessels, making the substance potentially more risky.

“It’s possible that the reason these drugs are so popular is because they are seen as safer than their illegal counterparts,” she said, so it is “important to challenge such assumptions”.

A report by the United Nations International Narcotics Control Board earlier this year said that in Europe alone, a new “legal high” comes onto the market every week.

David Nutt, a professor of psychopharmacology at Imperial College London and a former drugs advisor to the UK, said the big risk for people taking such substances was ignorance about what might be in them and what a safe dose might be.

“At present it’s a lottery,” he told reporters. “People just don’t know what they are taking.

Party Drug Called “Benzo Fury” Presents Dangers, Rat Study Suggests

benzo-fury

A party drug known as “Benzo Fury” can have dangerous consequences, a new study of rodents suggests. It has both stimulant and hallucinogenic effects, Reuters reports. The drug is a synthetic, laboratory-designed substance.

Benzo Fury can be purchased online, and is popular in Britain and the United States, the article notes. Researchers at Britain’s University of Roehampton found the drug produced an effect on the brains of rats that was similar to hallucinogenic, addictive drugs such as cocaine or amphetamines. It may lead to high blood pressure by constricting blood vessels, the researchers said.

“It’s in the combination of these stimulant and hallucinogenic properties that the greatest danger lies,” said lead researcher Jolanta Opacka-Juffry. She presented her findings at the British Neuroscience Association conference in London. She added, “It’s possible that the reason these drugs are so popular is because they are seen as safer than their illegal counterparts,” so it is “important to challenge such assumptions.”

Four more dogs found dead in Idaho as dog disappearances, killings mount

end-times

Four dogs have been found beaten in the head and shot to death in rural southern Idaho, authorities said on Thursday, adding to the mysterious disappearance and killing of dozens of dogs that has left residents in that area on edge.

Examinations showed that the German Shepherd mixes, whose carcasses had been dumped in a pile off a highway south of Twin Falls, had been bludgeoned and shot in the head, said Gary Trostel, deputy with the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Office.

“We didn’t know until today how they had died: poisoned or shot or what. We knew it was some type of head trauma the way the eyes bulged out and with all the bleeding,” Trostel said.

Animal control officers reported last month that roughly 30 dogs had gone missing since November in Twin Falls and nearby communities in a farming region known as the Magic Valley.

A German shepherd discovered by hikers last month in an area known as the Devil’s Corral in neighboring Jerome County appeared to have suffered what animal control officers called a “ritualistic execution” in which its head was crushed with rock and its carcass covered with a purple cloth.

Trostel said an examination of that dog showed it had been beaten and shot in the head.

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the dog’s death. It was unclear if that dog’s death was related to the other disappearances and killings.

Trostel said pet owners in the area are in a state of “constant concern”. He said residents were being urged to report any stalking or disappearance of pets and to prevent their dogs from roaming.

“We’re staying on it and working with what leads we have. We know something is going on but we don’t know what it all means. We’re trying to find out,” said Trostel.

No one has claimed the dead dogs. The carcasses show no signs that the animals had been used for dog fighting, which is illegal in Idaho, Trostel said.

First magic mushroom depression trial hits stumbling block

psilocybin

The world’s first clinical trial designed to explore using a hallucinogen from magic mushrooms to treat people with depression has stalled because of British and European rules on the use of illegal drugs in research.

David Nutt, president of the British Neuroscience Association and professor of neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London, said he had been granted an ethical green light and funding for the trial, but regulations were blocking it.

“We live in a world of insanity in terms of regulating drugs,” he told a neuroscience conference in London on Sunday.

He has previously conducted small experiments on healthy volunteers and found that psilocybin, the psychedelic ingredient in magic mushrooms, has the potential to alleviate severe forms of depression in people who don’t respond to other treatments.

Following these promising early results he was awarded a 550,000 pounds ($844,000) grant from the UK’s Medical Research Council to conduct a full clinical trial in patients.

But psilocybin is illegal in Britain, and under the United Nations 1971 Convention on Psychotropic Substances it is classified as a Schedule 1 drug – one that has a high potential for abuse and no recognized medical use.

This, Nutt explained, means scientists need a special license to use magic mushrooms for trials in Britain, and the manufacture of a synthetic form of psilocybin for use in patients is tightly controlled by European Union regulations.

Together, this has meant he has so far been unable to find a company able to make and supply the drug for his trial, he said.

“Finding companies who could manufacture the drug and who are prepared to go through the regulatory hoops to get the license, which can take up to a year and triple the price, is proving very difficult,” he said.

Nutt said regulatory authorities have a “primitive, old-fashioned attitude that Schedule 1 drugs could never have therapeutic potential”, despite the fact that his research and the work done by other teams suggests such drugs may help treat some patients with psychiatric disorders.

Psilocybin – or “magic” – mushrooms grow naturally around the world and have been widely used since ancient times for religious rites and also for recreation.

Researchers in the United States have seen positive results in trials using MDMA, a pure form of the party drug ecstasy, in treating post-traumatic stress disorder.

“What we are trying to do is to tap into the reservoir of under-researched illegal drugs to see if we can find new and beneficial uses for them in people whose lives are often severely affected by illnesses such as depression,” Nutt said.

The proposed trial would involve 60 patients with depression who have failed two previous treatments.

During two or three controlled sessions with a therapist, half would be given a synthetic form of psilocybin, and the other 30 a placebo. They would have guided talking therapy to explore negative thinking and issues troubling them, and doctors would follow them up for at least a year.

Nutt secured ethical approval for the trial in March.

In previous research, Nutt found that when healthy volunteers were injected with psilocybin, the drug switched off a part of the brain called the anterior cingulate cortex, which is known to be overactive in people with depression.

“Even in normal people, the more that part of the brain was switched off under the influence of the drug, the better they felt two weeks later. So there was a relationship between that transient switching off of the brain circuit and their subsequent mood,”, he said. “This is the basis on which we want to run the trial.”
