LIVING IN DARKNESS

Recently, while in a time of fellowship with the Lord, He said this: “Demons perform on demand, especially when My Name is spoken. This is one of their favorite deceptions. But know this, I am a Sovereign God. I don’t come every time someone calls, and I don’t perform on command. I only act according to My will and purpose and in My timing. And I don’t act to bless you, I act to fulfill My will and purpose, which is a blessing to you”

In other words, God isn’t sitting around waiting for people to call His name so He can come running to see what they want. He isn’t like some trained circus animal, ready to jump through a hoop as soon as someone sticks one in His face. How ludicrous! Yet that’s exactly what many in the traditional church believe today. They travel around from place to place, drive for hours, and spend thousands of dollars on airfare and motels to see the latest circus, otherwise known as a “signs and wonders revival meeting”. All because they think certain anointed men have this gift of making God do what they want, when they want. This won’t be popular, but I have to say it, if that’s what you believe, then you don’t know God! You only have a conception of God, and it’s a wrong one.

When you look at it in context (something that’s not very popular today, isolated phrases and verses are a lot more flexible), Ezekiel 20:9,14,22 all tell us that God acts to

WHY THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST?

WHY THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST?

The inherited, sinful blood from Adam and Eve was replaced by the Precious Blood of Jesus! Our Lord Jesus Christ bleed to death. On the cross, he was covered with blood…. his bloodshed is our “blood of redemption.”

MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST SAVE US AND THE WHOLE WORLD! Read … (Video and Prayer Included)

The Blood of Jesus is In Heaven On the Mercy Seat!
by David J. Stewart

… But BY HIS OWN BLOOD he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” —Hebrews 9:12

The Old Testament tabernacle, holy of holies, mercy seat and priestly work of atonement were all “SHADOWS” of things to come. Hebrews 10:1 and 4, “For the law having a SHADOW of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. … For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.” The blood of Jesus had to be applied to the heavenly mercy seat to redeem mankind. If Jesus’ blood had soaked into the ground at Calvary, then the sins of humanity could not have been taken away. Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” It WASN’T finished at the cross!

The Price Of The Church (by Pastor Jack Hyles)

This is not a new or strange doctrine, it is the Word of God. The sad truth is that most people have attended lousy churches their entire life and have never been blessed enough to have a man of God who truly walks with God and understands the Word of God. The lamb’s death wasn’t enough when the 10th plague (the death of the firstborn) came upon Egypt! The lamb’s shed blood had to be APPLIED to the doorposts of the home. The Lord said WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I will pass over you! Exodus 12:13, And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and WHEN I SEE THE BLOOD, I WILL PASS OVER YOU, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt….

O loving and merciful Father. You are all knowledgeable and all-powerful. Oh Alpha! Oh Omega! Creator of all things. You are eternal, Father. Father, why are you forsaking me?

AN EVIL MAN INSIDE OUT, ROTTEN TO THE CORE! Herod Eaten by Worms (Acts 12:23)

wpid-hqdefault-1.jpg

Herod was a tyrant ruler during the birth and life of Christ. Will this rot happen to evil men governing our nation, before the return of Christ?

The Death of Herod

23. Immediately, because Herod did not give glory to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died. 24 But the word of God continued to spread and multiply.…

King of Judaea
Reign 41–44 AD
Predecessor Marullus (Prefect of Judea)
Successor Cuspius Fadus (Procurator of Judea)
Born 11 BC
Died 44 AD (aged 54)
Caesarea Maritima
Full name
Marcus Julius Agrippa
Dynasty Herodian Dynasty
Father Aristobulus IV
Mother Berenice

Herod Agrippa, also known as Herod or Agrippa I (Hebrew: אגריפס) (11 BC – 44 AD), was a King of Judaea from 41 to 44 AD. He was the last ruler with the royal title reigning over Judea. The grandson of Herod the Great and son of Aristobulus IV and Berenice,[1] he was born Marcus Julius Agrippa, so named in honour of Roman statesman Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa. In the Bible, he is the king named Herod in the Acts of the Apostles 12:1:[2] “Herod (Agrippa)” (Ἡρώδης Ἀγρίππας). Josephus states that he was known in his time as “Agrippa the Great”.[3]

Christian and Jewish historiography take different views of this king, with the Christians largely opposing Agrippa and the Jews largely favoring Agrippa.

Agrippa’s territory comprised most of Israel, including Judea, Galilee, Batanaea and Perea. From Galilee his territory extended east to Trachonitis.

Life

Rome

Coin minted by Herod Agrippa.
Josephus informs us that, after the murder of his father, young Agrippa was sent by Herod the Great to the imperial court in Rome. There, Tiberius conceived a great affection for him, and had him educated alongside his son Drusus, who also befriended him, and future emperor Claudius.[1] On the death of Drusus, Agrippa, who had been recklessly extravagant and was deeply in debt, was obliged to leave Rome, fleeing to the fortress of Malatha in Idumaea. There, it was said, he contemplated suicide.[4]

After a brief seclusion, through the mediation of his wife Cypros and his sister Herodias, Agrippa was given a sum of money by his brother-in-law and uncle, Herodias’ husband, Herod Antipas, Tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, and was allowed to take up residence in Tiberias, and received the rank of aedile in that city, with a small yearly income. But having quarrelled with Antipas, he fled to Flaccus, proconsul of Syria. Soon afterwards he was convicted, through the information of his brother Aristobulus, of having received a bribe from the Damascenes, who wished to purchase his influence with the proconsul, and was again compelled to flee. He was arrested as he was about to sail for Italy, for a sum of money which he owed to the treasury of Caesar, but made his escape, and reached Alexandria, where his wife succeeded in procuring a supply of money from Alexander the Alabarch. He then set sail, and landed at Puteoli. He was favorably received by Tiberius, who entrusted him with the education of his grandson Tiberius Gemellus. He also formed an intimacy with Caligula, then a popular favorite. Agrippa was one day overheard by his freedman Eutyches expressing a wish for Tiberius’ death and the advancement of Caligula, and for this he was cast into prison.[1]

Caligula and Claudius
Following Tiberius’ death and the ascension of Agrippa’s friend Caligula in 37, Agrippa was set free and made king of the territories of Gaulanitis, Auranitis, Batanaea, and Trachonitis, which his uncle Philip the Tetrarch had held, with the addition of Abila. Agrippa was also awarded the ornamenta praetoria and could use the title amicus caesaris (“friend of Caesar”). Caligula also presented him with a gold chain equal in weight to the iron one he had worn in prison, which Agrippa dedicated to the Temple of Jerusalem on his return to his ancestral homeland. In 39, Agrippa returned to Rome, and brought about the banishment of his uncle, Herod Antipas; he was then granted his uncle’s tetrarchy, consisting of Galilee and Peraea. This created a Jewish kingdom which did not include Judea at its center.[5][6]

After the assassination of Caligula in 41, Agrippa was involved in the struggle over the accession between Claudius, the Praetorian Guard, and the Senate. How big a part Agrippa played can’t be said for sure; the various sources differ. Cassius Dio simply writes that Agrippa cooperated with Claudius in seeking rule. Flavius Josephus gives us two versions. In The Jewish War, Agrippa is presented as only a messenger to a confident and energetic Claudius. But in The Antiquities of the Jews, Agrippa’s role is central and crucial: he convinces Claudius to stand up to the Senate and the Senate to avoid attacking Claudius.[5] After becoming Emperor, Claudius gave Agrippa dominion over Judea and Samaria and granted him the ornamenta consularia, and at his request gave the kingdom of Chalcis in Lebanon to Agrippa’s brother Herod of Chalcis. Thus Agrippa became one of the most powerful kings of the east. His domain more or less equaled that which was held by his grandfather Herod the Great.

In the city of Berytus, he built a theatre and amphitheatre, baths, and porticoes. He was equally generous in Sebaste, Heliopolis and Caesarea. Agrippa began the building of the third and outer wall of Jerusalem, but the suspicions he had of Claudius’ intervention prevented him from finishing the fortifications which he had begun.[7] His friendship was courted by many of the neighboring kings and rulers,[1] some of whom he housed in Tiberias, which also caused Claudius some displeasure.[6]

Reign and death
Accounts in Josephus

Agrippa I prutah
Agrippa returned to Judea and governed it to the satisfaction of the Jews. His zeal, private and public, for Judaism is recorded by Josephus, Philo of Alexandria and the rabbis. Perhaps because of this, his passage through Alexandria in the year 38[8] instigated anti-Jewish riots.[6] At the risk of his own life, or at least of his liberty, he interceded with Caligula on behalf of the Jews, when that emperor was attempting to set up his statue in the Temple at Jerusalem shortly before his death in 41. Agrippa’s efforts bore fruit and persuaded Caligula to rescind his order thus preventing the Temple’s desecration.[9]

After Passover in 44, Agrippa went to Caesarea, where he had games performed in honor of Claudius. In the midst of his speech to the public a cry went out saying “this is not the voice of a man but of a god” (Acts 12:22), and Agrippa did not publicly react. At this time he saw an owl perched over his head. During his imprisonment by Tiberius a similar omen had been interpreted as portending his speedy release and future kingship, with the warning that should he behold the same sight again, he would die. He was immediately smitten with violent pains, scolded his friends for flattering him and accepted his imminent death. He experienced heart pains and a pain in his abdomen, and died after five days.[10] Josephus then relates how Agrippa’s brother, Herod of Chalcis, and Helcias sent Aristo to kill Silas.[11]

From Josephus, Antiquities 19.8.2 343-361: “Now when Agrippa had reigned three years over all Judea he came to the city Caesarea, which was formerly called Strato’s Tower; and there he exhibited spectacles in honor of Caesar, for whose well-being he’d been informed that a certain festival was being celebrated. At this festival a great number were gathered together of the principal persons of dignity of his province. On the second day of the spectacles he put on a garment made wholly of silver, of a truly wonderful texture, and came into the theater early in the morning. There the silver of his garment, being illuminated by the fresh reflection of the sun’s rays, shone out in a wonderful manner, and was so resplendent as to spread awe over those that looked intently upon him. Presently his flatterers cried out, one from one place, and another from another, (though not for his good) that he was a god; and they added, “Be thou merciful to us; for although we have hitherto reverenced thee only as a man, yet shall we henceforth own thee as superior to mortal nature.” Upon this the king neither rebuked them nor rejected their impious flattery. But he shortly afterward looked up and saw an owl sitting on a certain rope over his head, and immediately understood that this bird was the messenger of ill tidings, just as it had once been the messenger of good tidings to him; and fell into the deepest sorrow. A severe pain arose in his belly, striking with a most violent intensity. He therefore looked upon his friends, and said, “I, whom you call a god, am commanded presently to depart this life; while Providence thus reproves the lying words you just now said to me; and I, who was by you called immortal, am immediately to be hurried away by death. But I am bound to accept what Providence allots, as it pleases God; for we have by no means lived ill, but in a splendid and happy manner.” When he had said this, his pain became violent. Accordingly he was carried into the palace, and the rumor went abroad everywhere that he would certainly die soon. The multitude sat in sackcloth, men, women and children, after the law of their country, and besought God for the king’s recovery. All places were also full of mourning and lamentation. Now the king rested in a high chamber, and as he saw them below lying prostrate on the ground he could not keep himself from weeping. And when he had been quite worn out by the pain in his belly for five days, he departed this life, being in the fifty-fourth year of his age and in the seventh year of his reign. He ruled four years under Caius Caesar, three of them were over Philip’s tetrarchy only, and on the fourth that of Herod was added to it; and he reigned, besides those, three years under Claudius Caesar, during which time he had Judea added to his lands, as well as Samaria and Cesarea. The revenues that he received out of them were very great, no less than twelve millions of drachmae. But he borrowed great sums from others, for he was so very liberal that his expenses exceeded his incomes, and his generosity was boundless.”

Acts 12 relates that he was eaten by worms, after God struck him for accepting the praise of sycophants, comparing him to a god.

The Jewish Encyclopedia has a different account of Agrippa’s reign:

Claudius, showed himself grateful to Agrippa for important services rendered him, and upon his accession, placed under his rule the remainder of Palestine, the territories of Samaria, Judea, and Idumæa, formerly governed by Archelaus. Loaded with honors and titles, Agrippa returned home, and the few remaining years of his benevolent sway afforded the people a brief period of peace and prosperity. The evil consequences of a ruler’s unbridled passions and tyranny had been sufficiently evident to him in Rome, and they had taught him moderation and strict self-control. His people regarded him with love and devotion, because he healed with tender hand the deep wounds inflicted upon the national susceptibilities by brutal Roman governors. He ruled his subjects with compassion and friendliness. Like the ancestral Asmoneans from whom he sprang through his noble grandmother Mariamne, he honored the Law. Like the merest commoner, he carried his basket of first-fruits to the Temple; with the people he celebrated appropriately the Feast of Tabernacles, and he devoted to the sanctuary a golden chain with which Caligula had honored him. On one occasion, while in the street, he met a bridal procession which drew up to let him pass, but he halted and bade it take precedence. He sought to lighten taxation, remitting the impost on houses in Jerusalem. On the coins minted by him he carefully avoided placing any symbols which could offend the people’s religious sentiment. Thus, prosperity and comfort seemed to be dawning anew for the Jews. The Romans, however, became jealous of this rising prosperity, and—sometimes covertly, sometimes openly—laid all manner of obstacles in his way. When he began to repair the fortifications of the capital, he was abruptly bidden to cease. His attempts to fraternize with neighboring peoples—vassals of Rome—were construed as portending rebellion. His sudden death at the games in Cæsarea, 44, must be considered as a stroke of Roman politics. His death, while in the full vigor of his years, was deeply lamented by his people, notwithstanding the fact that he had made many considerable concessions to heathen manners and customs. The Christians looked upon his death as a judgment for his undisguised hostility to their young community (Acts, xii.).”[12][13][14]

The Talmud also has a positive view of his reign: The Mishnah explained how the Jews of the Second Temple era interpreted the requirement of Deuteronomy 31:10–13 that the king read the Torah to the people. At the conclusion of the first day of Sukkot immediately after the conclusion of the seventh year in the cycle, they erected a wooden dais in the Temple court, upon which the king sat. The synagogue attendant took a Torah scroll and handed it to the synagogue president, who handed it to the High Priest’s deputy, who handed it to the High Priest, who handed it to the king. The king stood and received it, and then read sitting. King Agrippa stood and received it and read standing, and the sages praised him for doing so. When Agrippa reached the commandment of Deuteronomy 17:15 that “you may not put a foreigner over you” as king, his eyes ran with tears, but they said to him, “Don’t fear, Agrippa, you are our brother, you are our brother!”[15] The king would read from Deuteronomy 1:1 up through the shema (Deuteronomy 6:4–9), and then Deuteronomy 11:13–21, the portion regarding tithes (Deuteronomy 14:22–29), the portion of the king (Deuteronomy 17:14–20), and the blessings and curses (Deuteronomy 27–28). The king would recite the same blessings as the High Priest, except that the king would substitute a blessing for the festivals instead of one for the forgiveness of sin. (Mishnah Sotah 7:8; Babylonian Talmud Sotah 41a.)

Account in the New Testament

The “King” Herod mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles, chapter 12,[17] is identified as the same person as Herod Agrippa (though the Herod mentioned in Acts 13:1 refers to Herod Antipas). The identification is based in part on the description of his death, which is very similar to Agrippa’s death in Josephus’s Antiquities of the Jews 19.8.2, although Josephus does not include the claim that “an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms.” Further evidence is the identification of the ruler in Acts 12:1 as “Herod the king,” since Agrippa is the only Herod who would have had authority in Jerusalem at that time.[18]

The description of Herod Agrippa as a cruel, heartless king who persecuted the Jerusalem church, having James son of Zebedee killed and imprisoning Peter, stands in contrast with Josephus’ account of a kindly man. According to Josephus, he was a milder ruler than his grandfather Herod the Great, and Josephus records him as talking with and then forgiving a law student accused of political rabble rousing, rather than punishing him as his grandfather and some other Herods would have done.[citation needed] Christian scholars argue that the biblical account makes sense given that Agrippa had been raised with a strong Jewish identity.[citation needed] Agrippa would resent a movement begun during his absence from Judæa that tried to declare a man as divine.[citation needed]

Blastus is mentioned in the New Testament as Herod’s chamberlain.[19] Herod Antipas, uncle and predecessor of Agrippa as ruler of Galilee and Peræa, is the Herod mentioned in the Gospels who authorized the execution of John the Baptist and played a role in the trial of Jesus.[20] Herod Agrippa II, son of Herod Agrippa, was asked, with his sister Berenice, by the Roman Procurator of Judea, Porcius Festus, to assist in the mini-trial of the Apostle Paul.[21]

Progeny

By his wife Cypros he had a son and three daughters. They were:

Herod Agrippa II [b.27/28 AD?-d.93 AD?] became the eighth and final ruler from the Herodian family.
Berenice [b.28-after 81 AD], who first married Marcus Julius Alexander, son of Alexander the Alabarch around 41 AD. After Marcus Julius died, she married her uncle Herod, king of Chalcis. She later lived with her brother Agrippa II, reputedly in an incestuous relationship. Finally, she married Polamo, king of Cilicia as alluded to by Juvenal.[22] Berenice also had a common-law relationship with the Roman emperor Titus.[23]
Mariamne [b.34-?], who married Gaius Julius Archelaus Antiochus Epiphanes; they had a daughter Berenice (daughter of Mariamne) [b.50 AD] who lived with her mother in Alexandria, Egypt after her parents’ divorce
Drusilla [38–79 AD], who married first to Gaius Julius Azizus, King of Emesa and then to Antonius Felix, the procurator of Judaea.[24][25][26][27] Drusilla and her son Marcus Antonius Agrippa died in Pompeii during the eruption of Vesuvius. A daughter, Antonia Clementiana, became a grandmother to a Lucius Anneius Domitius Proculus. Two possible descendants from this marriage are Marcus Antonius Fronto Salvianus (a quaestor) and his son Marcus Antonius Felix Magnus, a high priest in 225.Family tree

HOLD ON TO THAT WHICH IS GOOD AND TRUE…

image

ONCE there was a WORLD that was more kind than now.  People were giving and loving and life was simple.  Then, over a period of time, things became wrong.  Hostility rooted in and many hearts having love became dark.  Turmoil broke into the engagement of the Age.

After many years passed and people were so beaten down, they began asking ᤾”where is love and respect?”  They searched and searched but neither could be found.  All that was left were their own evil reflections and worldly abounds.

And be not conformed
to this world; but be
reformed in newness
of your mind that you
may prove what is the
good and the acceptable,
and the perfect will of God.

Romans 12:2

Plans For America,
with Patience accomplish the
Great Work, the Aeon of Horus

The Latin words “Melior Diabolus Quem Scies” roughly translates to mean “The Devil You Know,” as in the phrase “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know”. Cryptic. According to NASA, this saying refers to the return of the use of an old system after attempting to use a new one, which had resulted in failure. It is a rather odd choice of words for a governmental agency (NASA), but definitely on-par with this whole sinister, hellish theme for the United States of America.

 Citizens of America, I have some hard questions to bring before you. Questions of which I know most are not prepared to honestly answer but, they are necessary questions for those who have a desire to adhere to what is good and to abhor that which is evil.

 Have you ever wondered why the United States of America sets on such vast amounts of oil and natural gas? Capped off and never used while middle east oil is shipped half way around the world to supply US consumer demands?

Have you ever wondered why the United States government is entangled in the affairs of so many other nations, working as a arm of the United Nations?

If you have wondered why, that’s a good sign that you are waking up to the sad fact that the United States government is up to it’s eyeballs in world government.

Is it possible for God fearing individuals to live under ungodly authority? Of course the answer is yes and they have done so since Nimrod. The Godly have been under the authority of the ungodly for literally thousands of years.

 Today, Godly governments do not exist and if you believe your government is Godly you have been greatly, greatly deceived. Americans have much in the way of pride and patriotism for their rule of law.

The Liberty and Freedom of the Declaration of Independence and for having ‘In God We Trust’ on their money. The question is which God?
