Virgin Mary Appears in Miracle Tree in New Jersey : Demonic or Not?






WEST NEW YORK, N.J. -- Hundreds of Catholic faithful and curious onlookers descended on a West New York street Thursday, eager to visit a tree that many are convinced bears an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Virgin Mary as worshipped in Mexico.
The crowds gathered around the tree on Bergenline Avenue, leaving piles of flowers and praying as they touched the tree. "As soon as I got here, I felt this rush when I saw it, this rush from my body," said Barbara Questel of West New York. "It's such an amazing feeling."
 
Johanna Ramos was among the first to spot the image earlier in the week.
"It took me awhile, but when I realized the colors and shape of it, it was really noticeable," she said.
The crowds grew so large, police set up barricades to protect people waiting in line from traffic.
"It's excellent," said Bacher Archnir of West New York. "A lot of people come and believe."
Visitors to the tree lingered into the night. Barricades around the tree will remain, as police expect the number of visitors to grow.

Does this line up with scripture? Are people being deceived believing a lie? What does the scriptures say about this?


Scriptures on Idol Worship and Queen of Heaven


Exodus 20:1-5

King James Version (KJV)
20 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;


Jeremiah 44:16-18

King James Version (KJV)
16 As for the word that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will not hearken unto thee.
17 But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil.
18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine.


Revelation 21:8

King James Version (KJV)
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.


2 Thessalonians 2:10-13

King James Version (KJV)
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Psalm 106:35-38
King James Version (KJV)
35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
38 And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.


Only One Mediator Jesus Christ

1 Timothy 2:5
King James Version (KJV)
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;


Hebrews 12:24

King James Version (KJV)
24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
 
Mary isn't our mediator! Only Jesus Christ is the One and Only Mediator between G-d and men!

Could 2012 Be Year Destruction of Damascus Syria? Bible Prophecy Fulfilled?

Syria Warns It May Use Chemical Weapons on ‘Foreign’ Forces


Syria has admitted it has chemical weapons and in what might have been a veiled threat against Israel, said it will use them if attacked.
The regime promised it would not engage in chemical warfare against rebels, who by all accounts except for that of the government are pushing President Bashar Assad out of power.
Syrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Jihad Makdissi “assured” the world that it has secured chemical weapons, which it previously has not admitted to be in its possession but never would be used "inside Syria."
"No chemical or biological weapons will ever be used, and I repeat, will never be used, during the crisis in Syria, no matter what the developments inside Syria," he said on state television. "All of these types of weapons are in storage and under security and the direct supervision of the Syrian armed forces and will never be used unless Syria is exposed to external aggression."
Israel is concerned that the chemical weapons will fall into the hands of Hizbullah, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu declared Sunday his government will “have to act” if Assad’s regime collapses, leaving Hizbullah with the possibility of taking over his military arsenal. Assad already is suspected of having smuggled some of the chemical weapons into Lebanon for Hizbullah to stockpile.
Prime Minister Netanyahu told Fox News Sunday said that “there are other possibilities” than crossing the Syrian border in order to deal with Assad’s chemical weapons.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak was ore blunt and stated on Israeli television last Friday, “I’ve ordered the Israeli military to prepare for a situation where we would have to weigh the possibility of carrying out an attack” against Syria’s arsenal, which is believed to include mustard gas and nerve agents that can reach Israel via Scud missiles.
Syria never signed the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention.
Despite the Syrian Foreign Ministry’s vow not to use chemical weapons against the opposition, U.S. Senator John McCain does not trust the regime.
"These are helicopter gunships, tanks, artillery that are slaughtering people, and now there is a risk -- and I'm not saying it is going to happen -- a risk that in his desperation, Bashar al-Assad might use those chemical weapons," McCain said on CNN.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters traveling with President Barack Obama on Air Force One, "We believe that Syria's chemical weapons remain under Syrian government control. But given the escalation in violence, and the regime's increasing attacks on its own people, we remain very concerned about these weapons."






Isaiah 17:1

King James Version (KJV)
17 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Could 2012 fulfill Bible Prophecy of the destruction of Damacus, Syria?

Could President Assad threat to use chemical weapons cause this destruction?

Could Israel launch an pre-emptive attack on Damacus, Syria to avoid a chemical weapon attack by Syria?

As Christians we need to study Bible Prophecy a little bit more!

Last Days Spiritual Famine and Spiritual Eating Disorders


Amos 8:11 says, ” Behold the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not famine of bread, nor thirst for water, but hearing the words of the Lord.”
In these current days the American Church does not suffer from famine for water, bread or even “preaching”, but a famine of hearing the Word of the Lord. American Heritage Dictionary defines famine as, “a drastic and wide-reaching shortage of food. A drastic shortage; dearth.” The Hebrew word for famine is ra’ab(raw-awb) which means “hunger”, “dearth”, “famine”.
All across America people are going to church. And on the surface with mega-churches showing membership of 5,000-20,000 plus members, major church conferences generating revenue for conference registration, ministry product sales, special seed offerings for prophetic word or healing, super-star preachers and gospel recording stars, it all seems to have all the worldly success (Revelation 3:14-20). People are following the most popular preaching and teaching that the church world has to offer. However, people aren’t hearing the Word of the Lord. They are hearing things that cater to their carnality, and not the spiritual man. Preachers that give the Word of the Lord are supposed to reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine (2 Timothy 4:2). They are to do whatever is needed to be expressed by the Spirit of God if the congregation needs a message of correction, rebuked, or encouragement to build the saints up spiritually. But most church goers have itching ears; they don’t want sound doctrine that will bring repentance and maturity and impact the world with the gospel, while transforming them into the image of the Son of God Christ Jesus. The American Church are more consumers, in that they want to go to a church that fits their specific selfish wants and desires, versus being consumed with the passion and fire of God to advance the kingdom of God. They have no want to be a vessel that will follow heavenly assignment to have an impact in the earth like Jesus did.

Don’t be deceived into thinking that a large membership roster or the place where all secular celebrities claim membership make a great church. You know, the place that Christian celebrities go to sing and preach. However, if Jesus and His Word aren’t being celebrated, and you’re not seeing a visible change in the life of the people, and people do not turn from sin, then it is obvious that Church is quite possibly in major state of “spiritual famine.”
Let’s examine spiritual famine (starvation), and spiritual eating disorders of spiritual anorexia nervosa, spiritual bulimia nervosa, spiritual binge eating. This examination will see if somebody is getting a healthy spiritual diet, or is starving spiritually and has spiritual eating disorder that may cause spiritual death.


Spiritual Famine

Just because a person is going to a church does not mean he or she is properly eating spiritually. If the Word is not being preached and taught, and s/he is sitting under pseudo psychological preaching and teaching, or vain man made philosophical preaching or teaching, it is not Christ-centered. It is man-center. If it is man-center then spiritual famine reigns over that church, it is spiritually immature and unproductive, and influence by the flesh and satanic powers.



Characteristics of people who are in spiritually famine




1. They do not see the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit reigning in their life (Galatians 5:22:23). Instead, there would be the manifestation of the works of the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21).
2. A spiritual famine person hates eating the “bread of life” which is the Word of God and consumed by serpents/demonic powers (Numbers 21:5-6).
3. They have an uncircumcised ear to hear the Lord (Jeremiah 6:10). You can’t have faith in God if you can’t hear Him (Romans10:17)!
4. They love lies instead of the truth (Jeremiah 5:31).
5. They are prideful. They walk in agreement with other people in the same famine condition (Amos 3:3).
6. Idols reign in their heart (Ezekiel 14:3). They are naked and blind and live in self-deception that they are spiritually minded (Revelation 3:17).
Spiritual Anorexia Nervosa
Anorexia nervosa is when person is below normal body weight, starve themselves, and have excessive weight loss.
A person that suffers from spiritual anorexia nervosa refuses to eat good spiritual food coming from the Word of God. They go through the motions of religion, and never come to eat of the Master’s body and drink of His blood (John 6:50-53). These people starve themselves from studying the Word, and applying the Word to daily life. Therefore, they suffer spiritually, not maintaining a “healthy spiritual weight” of knowledge and wisdom of God, zeal, ministry, living upright, witnessing, having love, joy, peace, patience, discipline, self-control (temperance), and active participant in the kingdom of God.
Spiritual Bulimia



Bulimia is eating disorder that is a cycle of eating large portions of food, and then causing self-induced vomiting of that food.
A person who has spiritual Bulimia sits under great preaching or teaching where truth is revealed by hearing the Word and refuses to apply that Word and/or repent. Because they intake the Word, and do not apply it or make necessary changes in their lives, these individuals “vomit out” life changing Word. If they had continued to walk in that Word they would have produced spiritual life. A person that returns back to foolishness, is like dog that returns back to its vomit (Proverbs 26:11, 2 Peter 2:21-22). Unfortunately they don’t maintain the Word which is good food, but vomit out the good food, only go back to eat the vomit of sin and mediocrity which equals spiritual starvation. The end result is spiritual death. The only thing that needs to be purged is sin. The Word gives us spiritual health.


Binge Eating Disorder


Binge Eating Disorder is compulsive over eating. These individuals typically hide food, eat rapidly, and stuff themselves until they’re sick.
An individual who suffers from a “spiritual binge eating disorder”, goes from conference to conference, reads a lot of Christian books, watches a bunch of Christian television, attends seminars where they take a lot of notes, have stuffed themselves with a lot of information. However, they do not utilize it to be blessing to kingdom of God. Instead they hide their talent (Matthew 25:25). They are so stuffed with information, they fail to use it to edify the spiritual body (Ephesians 4:12).


Conclusion
Spiritual famine and spiritual eating disorders can be avoided if an ear is given to hear what the Spirit has to say (Revelation 3:13). There is no need to run to and fro from every prophesy line to get a prophetic word from some false prophet who wants to profit off of you (unscriptural/Amos 8:12). You have more sure word of prophecy that is within the Holy scriptures (2 Peter 1:19-21)!
Let the Chief Shepherd Jesus and His under shepherds (Pastors) feed you, and you never have to go a day without being in a spiritual famine. Ezekiel 34:23,25 says, “And I will setup one shepherd over them, and he will feed them, even my servant David; he will feed them, and he will be their shepherd. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beast to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.” By being taught, and receiving the Word, the Lord will make a covenant of peace, that the evil beast (demons) will cease control of your marriage, family, children, health, finance, and your ministry. You will live in peace and joy in the Holy Ghost.
