A thank you to Dave for this excellent talk.
A tour de force. Powerful Christian apologetic.
I loved this analysis and discussion of Richard Grannon’s video on the collapse of modern civilization. This really was a tour de force looking at truth claims in the post modern world the metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and ontology of different world views as contrasted with Christian anthropology. Employing logic, reason and rationality which form the basis of Christian truth claims. Their philosophical premise is based on first cause which is always difficult to refute because it is logically consistent. This video is 3:46 hours long and worth watching (listening too) underneath the original video by Richard Grannon is posted. He has a BSc in Psychology and a Master Practitioner certification in NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), Richard is “The Spartan Life Coach” — an expert in applying the Spartan values of strength, self-discipline, and bravery to psychological training.
"For, although we are in the flesh, we do not battle according to the flesh, for the weapons of our battle are not of flesh but are enormously powerful, capable of destroying fortresses. We destroy arguments and every pretension raising itself against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive in obedience to Christ." (2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NAB)

The only part of the Dayz of Noah video that I would critique is the use of formulaic or credal language to describe Christ as fully God and fully man as I prefer a more nuanced position such as presented by John A. T. Robinson who interprets the incarnation to mean that Jesus was “totus deus, the one who is utterly expressive of Godhead,” not “totum dei, the exhaustive revelation” of God (Robinson, 1979: 104, 120).
"Further, if Jesus Christ is totus deus - if, that is to say, God has wholly and not merely partially vested himself in Christ - he is, again, not totum dei. Jesus Christ does not represent everything of God in the sense that there is no revelation of God outside him. If he is final, it is because ultimately everything is summed up and included in him, not because he is exclusively the expression of God. The Christian who asserts that for him Jesus Christ is the all-embracing principle of interpretation is asserting that there is nothing in his experience that requires any other explanation; for everything 'coheres' in him. He makes this judgment - and calls himself a Christian - because he does not find this is true of Buddha and Mohammed, not because he does not find any truth in them. For him Christ represents the definitive revelation of God - and this is a less misleading word than final - because it is inconceivable to him that there could be any higher revelation of God in human terms of 'pure, unbounded love' " (p.221-222). Robinson, John A.T., 1973, The Human Face of God. Philadelphia: Philadelphia, Westminster Press
I prefer the Greek description manifestation (phanerosis) rather than the Latin verb incarnation (The verb incarno does not occur in the Latin Bible but the term is drawn from the Gospel of John 1:14) derived from the prefix in- and caro, “flesh”, meaning “to make into flesh” or, in the passive, “to be made flesh”. Incarnational doctrine is thought to imply the personal pre-existence of Christ rather than ideological preexistence, however, all believers are said to be chosen in him from the foundation of the world (Eph 1:4).
God’s work of manifestation is not complete as he is calling out a people for his name (sons and daughters) therefore although the Christ event is definitive (Eph 1:23) it is not exhaustive because God manifestation is an ongoing process that can only be achieved in and through the Christ event. Divine manifestation is the telos allowing Timothy to exclaim “My Lord and my God!” in the presence of the resurrected Christ.
It is Good Friday the start of the Christian holiday known to most people as Easter. Of course, Easter itself is based on the Jewish Passover and is the feast associated by Christians with the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is interesting that Victoria police should use Easter to put out a PR message to placate a public that they have brutalized during the lockdowns. Even though their message is deliberately anti-Christian and pagan they inadvertently do us a favor by highlighting important issues.

We have two “bunnies” and the mention of Lucifer and Azazel in this tweet. Many Jews would equate Azazel (Lev 16:8) with Lucifer and the choice of two bunnies is a deliberate play on choosing two goats for the Day of Atonement feast. One goat (known as the scapegoat) was released and sent to Azazel (sent to the devil) and the other goat was sacrificed. I have written extensively on the scapegoat phenomenon but essentially the goat that is sent away into exile is the nation of Israel and the goat that was sacrificed is Christ. The Gospels relate the passion scene as a combination of both feasts (Passover and Atonement) with Jesus (the son of the Father) sacrificed (Goat for Yahweh) and the other son of the father (Barabbas the goat for Azazel) released.
The Passion of the Christ (2004) – Free Barabbas (3 min)
Indeed, it is speculated by some that Barabbas might have been one of those who abandoned discipleship (John 6:66) because Jesus refused to be crowned King (John 6:15) and to lead a violent revolt against the Romans. If that is the case, then Barabbas as an ex-disciple would have been tried for insurrection and murder (Mark 15:7) not just for robbery.
John 6, the chapter in which many disciples abandon the Christ is the famous “hard saying” (John 6:60) which is about “eating him” (John 6:57). This deliberately proactive saying was an abomination to the Jews with their kosher food laws and is also misunderstood as the doctrine of transubstantiation by some Christians.
It is something more “modern” that has been taken up by “identity politics”. In the present clown world of cultural Marxism, you can choose to identify as male/female or whatever you may wish. In Contrast by the act of the eucharist and eating bread and drinking wine Christians are making a statement that they identify with Christ (John 6:54-56). In other words, the Christian is demonstrating that his flesh and blood has become joined to the flesh and blood of Christ. Our humanity becomes like his humanity which is dead to ego expressed as sin. This does not mean that we are sinless but that we (like Abraham) are counted as righteous because of faith. The two ritual instructions given to us by Christ (baptism and the eucharist) are both concerned with identifying with him. Jesus becomes the fulfilment of the two critical Jewish feasts. He is both the goat slain for Yahweh on the Day of Atonement and the Lamb of God (John 1:29) killed on Passover and celebrating the deliverance out of the land of death (Egypt with its Pyramid tombs).
Many Christians point out that the Christian celebration of the Lord’s Passover has been paganised with “chocolate eggs” etc which are ancient symbols of fertility rites. They are of course correct because there is an element of syncretism just as there is with the celebration of Christmas.
Easter is the pagan festival of spring, the years rebirth of resurrection. The name comes from the Saxon Goddess of spring, Oestre, who also gives her name to the estrus-cycle. Her name is cognate with Ostarte, Astarte, Ishtar, Ashtoreth. #TheTruthAboutEaster pic.twitter.com/lTQMjuvV2h

On these matters I take the advice of the apostle Paul (Rom 14:5-6) and although I do enjoy my chocolate eggs and easter buns I believe it is incumbent that Christians understand the importance of feast and if they are not running around naked worshiping a fertility goddess no harm no foul. It is however very interesting to understand the origins of Easter or Astarte in ancient Canaanite religion and how this relates to ancient Israel. Serious biblical scholars have known for some time that the Canaanite Baal had a consort (wife) called Astarte. We should not be surprised that this carried over to ancient Israelite religion where Yahweh was worshipped with a consort and that this was condemned by the prophets. Abraham was a former inhabitant of Ur where polytheistic religion was practiced when he received his revelation and was told to leave. The point is that the Old Testament depicts God as having a consort, but that consort (wife) becomes the people of faith (in the first place Israel) which was made to drink the waters of jealousy (Ex 32:20, Num 5:22) and given a bill of divorce for her whoredoms (cf. Hos 1:2). I recommend watching this video by William Dever who mentions Margret (I believe that is a reference to Margert Barker who I have corresponded with) and at about 54 minutes Leen Ritmijer (Who some of you may know). In any case the setting up of cult centres at Dan and Beersheba should be familiar to any Bible student as that was instigated by Jeraboam (1 Kings 12:27-33). Moreover, the centralization of the cult was undertaken by the reformers Hezekiah (2 Kings 18:4-5) and Josiah (2 Kings 23:5-25).
In the NT God is depicted as male and addressed by Jesus as a Father. Of course, we are dealing with anthropomorphic symbology because God is depicted as both male and female, but at the same time he is neither male nor female. God does not need to reproduce because he is eternal, and we are his offspring (Acts 17:28) made in his image (Gen 1:26). The El Shaddai epithet used in the OT denotes the female aspect of divine nature, namely “breasts”, denoting fertility and blessing epitomised in the promise to Eve (whose name means mother of the living Gen 3:20) that through pain and suffering the messianic ideal would be birthed. The point is that Yahweh is calling out a consort (wife) as a bride for his son with the Baptist depicted as the bridegroom (John 3:29) and the church as a bride (John 21:2) being invited to a wedding feast (the messianic banquet Matt 22:8-14, it is wedding garments/done Luke 14:22, garments (Rev 16:15-17) the banquet is Armageddon the Super of the Great God (Rev 19:17)) where the water for purifying the Jews (John 2:6) is transformed into the wine (blood) of the covenant. So, the ancient, corrupted symbols are being repurposed and demythologised to reflect their original intent.
Transhumanist (Jews) are trying to deify themselves and undo the blessing of fertility by becoming androgynous. Shekhinah, the ‘cloud of Yahweh’ in the Bible, a synonym for God’s presence in the rabbinic tradition, and a feminine hypostasis in the Kabbalah, is a popular theological image in contemporary Jewish feminist circles. The Kabbalists want to unite Yahweh with his consort the Shekinah:
Shekhinah, the tenth sefirah, represents God’s presence in the world of “material reality” in which humans live. Shekhinah, the daughter of Binah, is a feminine sefirah whose role is to channel all the energies of the upper nine sefirot into the everyday human world. Without Shekhinah, humans would have no concrete understanding of divinity. Kabbalistic literature typically portrays that Shekhinah as an outcast, a lone sefirah. Her separation from Ein Sof and the other sefirot parallels the exile of the Jewish people from their homeland of Israel. Because Shekhinah is a part of Ein Sof, Ein Sof can never be whole or healed until Shekhinah returns from exile, just as Jews can never know peace until all Jews can return to Israel. Kabbalistic literature symbolically represents this return in the sexual union of Shekhinah and Tiferet, the sefirah that represents God’s beauty. Kabbalists all share the same aim: to unite Shekhinah with Tiferet through faithful devotion to Kabbalah, and in turn bring about the restoration of Ein Sof. https://www.sparknotes.com/philosophy/kabbalah/mini-essays/

The Christian church has failed miserably in opposing transhumanism, tyranny, and war. There is only one Church and one body composing of Jews and Gentiles over the ages. No churches are without fault (doctrinal or otherwise) and yet Jesus is able to redeem faithful individuals even from the most corrupt churches (Rev 2:24).
“The Church failed on this issue massively. But not all of the Church. There were voices that spoke up.”

This is very interesting and recommended. This explains the meta-verse that Zuck is building. The word meta in Hebrew means death. These people are insane.
There is so much going on ….even D-wave with its quantum computer in the shape of a cube (Saturn) and the inventor telling us it can call up “demons”. This is not conspiracy theory….this is how they talk….this is what they believe…this is their symbology. They are the ones committing a conspiracy and they are insane.
Two new videos also placed on YouTube and BitChute. More videos c0ming – the next want is about the Tree of Death which is the opposite of the Tree of Life in Jewish Kabbalah mysticism.
Here is an amusing and rather sad article that demonstrates that some people are crazy or suffering from some form of psychosis. The reason why I am posting this will become apparent anon. First let me say that this story broke in the New York Times a well know Jewish media outlet (look at the names under the article heading). I add this information because any criticism immediately gets classified as anti-Semitic, so if you have a problem with it take it up with the NYT.
Well, to fill in the background. Epstein is already a convicted pedophile and sex trafficker who got let off lightly on his previous trial. He has been re-arrested because fresh evidence has appeared. A lot of influential people were drawn into his web and it seems he has compromised (blackmailed) them. There is a strong suspicion that he works either for Mossad or for Jewish financiers (Rothschilds). He is now in jail awaiting a re-trial as he is considered a flight risk. It appears that an attempt was made on his life while in jail or perhaps (unlikely) a suicide attempt. He holds a lot of damaging information and certain people want to shut him up.
Now the NYT headline;
Jeffrey Epstein Hoped to Seed Human Race With His DNA
Apparently he also wanted his head and his penis cryogenically frozen
Epstein is obviously a damaged individual but can we draw any wider conclusions from this? Many would say that would not be fair as you have good and bad everywhere but is there more going on than meets the eye? Of course I know nothing about his “religiosity” (Judaism) or whether or not he is a “Zionist” but the former is likely and the latter is virtually a given. Can we extrapolate from this something about the current Jewish mindset?
The Torah teaches resurrection from the dead, it does not teach an “immortal soul”. Very early on there was a split among the Jews with the Pharisees believing in the resurrection and the Sadducee (priest) denying the resurrection.
This is what Freud had to say about his people;“No other people of antiquity
[than the Egyptians] has done so much to deny death, has made such careful
provision for an after-life […]. The early Jewish religion, on the other hand,
had entirely relinquished immortality; the possibility of an existence after
death was never mentioned in any place.
Sigmund Freud, Moses and Monotheism,
Hogarth Press, 1939 (archive.org), pp. 33-34.
So, according to Freud the Jews denied immortality (immortal soul); the doctrine of the immortal soul was introduced into reform Judaism by Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786),he did not rely on the Jewish tradition, but instead produced a Platonic dialogue titled Phaedo or the Immortality of the Soul.
Many Jewish intellectuals protested against the introduction of that foreign body into Jewish thought, and their reaction would become a central tenet of Zionism. According to Moses Hess (Rome and Jerusalem: The Last National Question, 1862),
“Nothing is more foreign to the spirit of Judaism
than the idea of the salvation of the individual which,
according to the modern conception, is the cornerstone of religion.”
For Hess, the essence of Judaism is “the vivid belief in the continuity
of the spirit in human history,” because “the Jews are something more
than mere ‘followers of a religion,’ namely, they are a race brotherhood,
Moses Hess, Rome and Jerusalem: A Study in Jewish Nationalism,
1918 (archive.org), pp. 48, 64-65, 71, 98.
“Only by intermarriage can a person uproot himself from a nation,
and then only in so far as his descendants are concerned.
His individuality, which is an extract and an example of the
qualities of his nation, may then be lost in future generations,
dominated by qualities of other nations. Quitting a nation is,
therefore, even from a biological point of view, an act of suicide.”
Benzion Netanyahu, The Founding Fathers of Zionism (1938),
Balfour Books, 2012 , kindle ed., 157-66 and 2203–7.
This brings us to our conclusion. Materialism is at the root of Zionism and that is essentially the Sadducee doctrine. The only “afterlife” is the one we make now and our destiny (afterlife) is expressed through our children. The whole (nation) is greater than the individual parts. In the end people live on through their descendants. Jews are destined to rule the world (so the Torah says) and the Jews are determined to do this. However, freezing your penis (even if it is circumcised) will not achieve this.
Abraham and Sarah were barren. The promise and continuation of the race came through faith in the promise of God embodied in the Messiah it did not come through a frozen penis, or through circumcision.
"I just wish that those troublemakers who want to mutilate
you by circumcision would mutilate themselves".
(NLT Gal 5:12)
The promise does not come through the flesh it can never come through the flesh whether that is “spreading your seed” or through nationalism (Zionism) materialism will fail.
In his time Jesus declared the following:
21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him,
he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth
not with me scattereth.
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places,
seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house
whence I came out.
25 And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
26 Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked
than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that
man is worse than the first.
Here the nation is depicted as a mad man who has been healed (think here of Legion). The unclean Spirit in this story is sent into dry places (the wilderness) not into the abyss (sea of Galilee as in the Legion story). The point is that the nation is sent into the wilderness like the Scapegoat (bearing its sins) sent to Azazel (the strong one) and the place of demons (Babylonian captivity). But God does not banish them forever. He took pity and called them back from Babylon. In the first century Jesus “swept the house” when he cleansed the temple. The Jews always cleaned the unleavened bread out of their homes (they still practice a spring clean) at Passover. Jesus cleansed the temple at Passover. So we have an allusion here to two Jewish feasts 1. Day of Atonement (sending the scapegoat into dry places) and 2. cleaning the house (feast of unleavened bread in preparation for Passover).
The point is that Jesus came to replace the “unclean spirit” with the Gospel and the nation (apart from a small Jewish remnant) rejected that message and rejected the Messiah. Therefore God sent them into dry places again….and they have returned again.
[Actually, technically, that is wrong….he sent them into the ABYSS (not dry places) and they were unclean animals (swine not goats)….and now they are in the process of emerging from the abyss…..to build a Third Temple (sic)….they emerge “riding a beast” and they murder the witnesses]
However, Jesus warned that if they did not accept him as their Messiah or accept the gospel message, in the end they WOULD GO COMPLETELY MAD.
Surely, Epstein’s approach is the sign of a deep rooted psychosis in some (not all ) Jews. Materialism will get you nowhere. If there is no repentance there will only be punishment. God will not be mocked. Jacob will be wrestled to a halt and crippled.
The Jews have been manipulating the nations from before the first world war but judgement day is nearly here. As a Christian you should preach to the Jews without fear or favor, with compassion and hope. You should however not pander to their psychosis. You should not become a sycophant and an enabler. Stick with the facts and call them out but always remember that you are an in-grafted branch. If you do this you will be called an anti-Semite, your career and reputation will be destroyed you will be blacklisted for telling the truth and preaching the gospel. Ezekiel 33:

Are all the lies starting to unravel? I believe that people are starting to wake up. Many know that a financial collapse is at hand. Many are starting to understand the manipulation and lies behind the wars. Many feel that the “climate change” agenda is hiding something much more complex and resistant to human input. In other words the ones who are watching and alert are starting to sense and feel the “wrongness” and the “lies”. This can only mean that the “hidden hand” will soon pull the plug. I expect financial collapse and/or war will start shortly, before too many people wake up. Be ready to bail-in your savings to save the banks, to send your children to shed their blood in Middle East wars and will you please stop using your gas and electric….we need to save the world, ya know!
