Days of Noah: Abortion and the End-Times

Jesus said in Luke 17:26-30, “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when Son of man is revealed.”

As a 1st century rabbi, Jesus, like most Jewish teachers, coupled Sodom and the flood generation as signal images of evil. His intent was to inform his audience that at His second coming the conditions of the world would mirror Noah’s days and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. The people of Noah's day and in Sodom and Gomorrah were practicing all types of abominations, which eventually cause the judgment of G-d to come upon them.

 A historical glimpse of abortion in the Days of Noah

The book of Enoch was written before the birth of Christ and although it is not an inspired book, its a good resource (some of it is quoted in the Book of Jude). First Enoch 69:13 has an interesting quote on abortion. It mentions a fallen angel named “Kasadya” who teaches mankind the knowledge of aborting babies within the womb of a woman. People were seduced into following the paradigm of the occult. Occult is defined as any system (particularly magic and astrology) which claims use of secret knowledge through supernatural powers or agencies. Occult knowledge is forbidden by God and violates His Word.

The Jewish writings of the Midrash Rabbah Genesis state that the “Nephilim” used the unrestrained sexual conduct of the to multiply abortions in the world because the people of Noah’s time were licentious or sexually unrestrained. It was sexual immorality that eventually led to the origination of abortion through the occult.

Genesis 6 says that the Earth was filled with violence, all flesh was corrupt, and that the wickedness of men was so great that their imagination and thoughts were continually evil. Every type of abominable act was performed including the division of abortion and the actual act of abortion. Hands that shed innocent blood and a heart that devised wicked imagination are abominations that the Lord hates ( Proverbs 6:16-18).

The faces of child hate evolve and emerge

As modernism gave way to postmodernist ideology, satan introduced a new kill strategy aimed at the most vulnerable: unborn children. His plan was to teach people to systematically murder and connect it to common sexual sin. Satan hates children because according to Psalms 127:3, children are a gift of God. Thus, satan has dispatched his ministers to destroy children as quickly and as efficiently as possible. As we fast forward to the early twentieth century, we see the foundations of abortion springing directly from satanic devotion.

Alice Bailey

Alice Bailey (June 16, 1880 – December 15, 1949) was an occultist and founder of Lucis Trust (Lucifer Trust) and Lucis Publishing (Lucifer Publishing). In her book Education in the New Age, Bailey laid out a ten point strategy to destroy Christianity. Of note: points 3,4 and5. Point three of the strategy was to remove restrictions on sex. Bailey believed sex was “big joy” and Christianity robbed people of it. The fourth point of Bailey’s strategy stated that since sex is the greatest expression of man’s enjoyment of life, man must be free to express sex in all its forms. Bailey had no problem with homosexuality, orgies or even bestiality just as long as no one was being abused or harmed. Lastly, she states in point five that people must be free to abort unwanted children. She taught that if men can have sex and live without the consequences, then the same should apply to women. This writing of Bailey helped fuel emerging deception that abortion was just a mere method of birth control and not murder.

Margaret Sanger
Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger (September 14, 1879 – September 6, 1966) was without question a significant catalyst in contemporary legal child murder. Not only was Sanger a treacherous racist, she too was heavily involved in the occult. She was a disciple of Theosophy (the worship of Lucifer/Satan). Its founder Madame Blavatsky , Alice Bailey and Adolf Hitler were disciples of Theosophy. Sanger was a racist, occultist, and in real terms a serial slut. She practiced sleeping with multiple partners which she called her “voluntary mates.” Sanger claimed that she was a god. And like most madmen, her delusions of divine grandeur has led to fifty million(and counting) innocent deaths in America. These deaths caused by abortion are otherwise known as ”America’s Secret Holocaust.”

Gloria Steinem

Towards the end of the 1960s the feminist movement gave birth to activist and co-founder of Ms. magazine Gloria Steinem. Like abortion advocates before her, Steinem embraced occultic mysticism known as theosophy. In the Sep-Oct 95 edition of Ms. Steinem was quoted as saying, “Witches were freedom fighters for women because they taught contraception and abortion. The modern contribution is to elevate reproductive freedom to a universal human right.” Her statement makes it clear that not only is abortion immoral and murderous, its roots are demonic.

In 1974, about 900,000 abortions were performed in the U.S. The rate in Russia is about ten times higher or about ten million abortions per year. (1976)

Abortion is an Abomination/ Why God Will Judge America and Other Nations for it!

Here are five significant reasons God will judge nations that endorse abortion/infanticide:

1. Abortion is murder (6th commandment thou shalt not kill).

2. God requires protection of the unborn(Exodus 21:22-23).

3. The shedding of innocent blood pollutes the land of a nation(Psalm 106:38).

4. Hands that shed innocent blood is an abomination to God (Proverbs 6:17).

5. Murderers and the abominable shall inherit the Kingdom of God, but will have a place in the Lake of Fire for eternity(Revelation 21:8). This is the final judgement those who practice abortion, and don't repent fall under the category of the abominable and murderers.

To conclude Jesus Christ had prophesied over 2000 years ago as it is in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the world at  the end of the age extreme wicked condition just as the people in Noah's day before the Son of Man return. The increase in sexual immorality and abortions are prophetic sign that were living in the last mininutes of the last days. The end is near. The Church has to sound the trumpet to dying rebellious world to repent, because Jesus Christ is coming to judge this world.

The Truth & History of Tattoos: Christian Perspective

Pic of False Prophet/Profit Todd Bentley Tattoos

Tattoos in today's society are quite popular.  One in 10 Americans have tattoos, and one - third of 25 to 30 year old in America have tattoos (here).  Church folks are even getting tattoos because of the influence of today’s culture. We will explore the truth about tattoos, how they originated, what they symbolize, the biblical perspective on tattoos, and the possible health risks.
Leviticus 19:28 says, "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord." The act of tattooing includes tribal markings dedicated to a particular person’s tribal deity. The tattoo was originally a sign of alliance and worship to an idol god. Therefore, tattooing originates from pagan demonism, idol worship, and the magical arts of the occult world.

Tattooing-Magic and  Demons 
Tattooing was a method used by pagans such as sorcerers and pagan priests. Sorcerers used the method of tattooing to pass on their powers or demons to a disciple or descendant.  A Tattooists in paganism are much like a shamans or occult priests.  They are a point of contact to the spirit world.  In Michelle Delio's states on page eight of her book, "Tattoo: The Exotic Art of Skin Decoration," that tattooing is all about personalizing the body to making it a true home and fit temple for the spirit to dwell inside. The Apostle Paul said in First Corinthians that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit  for those are in the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Likewise in tattooing the body is a temple to a spirit/demonic spirit.

A perfect example of  tattooing and the act of passing down magical powers to a disciple or descendant is television series, "Smallville."  In the episode, "Spell", the character Lana Lang has a spell book from one of her ancestors.  She becomes possessed by the spirit of her ancestor (really a demon spirit), and assumes the magical powers of her ancestor. It seems Hollywood's entertainment industry is well versed in the knowledge of the occult and its promotion. They know the reality of the occult spirit world and tattooing.

A pastor once told me a story of a woman who was at one of his church services.  The woman ended up responding to the altar call after the sermon stating that she wanted the "baptism of the Holy Spirit."  She was having a hard time receiving the Baptism when he noticed that her tongue was pierced.  He told me that the Holy Spirit spoke to him and to tell the woman to remove her tongue ring.  She did and guess what?  She received the Holy Spirit! Several days later, the woman brought five thousand dollars worth of body piercing and tattooing equipment to the church.  When she spoke to the pastor she told hm that she was into Satanism.  She confessed that she and her friends would pray satanic prayers over their body piercing and tattooing equipment to invoke demon spirits on the people getting the tattoos.  She asked the pastor to dispose of the equipment which he did with extreme pleasure.

United States History on Tattoos

Concerning the history of the United States, tattoos have always signified rebellion in a society with criminals, adulterers, traitors, and the deviant. Many prisoners and criminal gangs have used and continue to use tattoos to indicate criminal behavior, prison sentences, and organizational affiliation. In the beginning of the late 1990’s the lower back tattoos became popular with young woman. It’s intent was to emphasis sexual attractiveness. However, some consider this type of tattoo as sign of promiscuity and indication of the "raunch" culture. Hence, the nicknames "tramp stamp" (a.k.a "slut) and "dirty girl" tattoo.
In parts of Britain adultery was punished by tattooing. In the army deserters were tattooed with the letter "D".

Yes indeed the popularity of tattooing in American society has grown by leaps and bounds. However, corporate American doesn't look to favorably on tattoos. In in poll done by Careerbuilders found the following:

Over 42 percent of managers said their opinion of someone would be lowered by that person's visible body art. (Personally, I think that the actual figure is much higher.)

Three out of four respondents believe that visible tattoos are unprofessional.

Employers aren't legally bound if they tell someone not to reveal tattoos at the workplace, or to keep tattoos covered up isn't illegal. In survey done by employers and employees were asked the question about body piercing and tattoos in the workplace. Sixty percent of the employers were less than likely than to hire someone with body piercings and tats, because on how the company image maybe tarnished. An individual may see it as self-expression, but an employer sees it as rebellious, bringing attention to yourself, and not a team player(here).

Health Consequences on Getting Tattoos

There are many health concerns when it comes to tattooing. There is a possibility of contracting deadly blood -borne diseases including but not limited to; AIDS, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, tetanus, syphilis, and tuberculosis(here).
Tattoo parlors are not held to the same health regulations as a health care practitioner office. Many of the parlors cater to customers that are somewhat deviant and already carrying some type of disease.
Tattooing opens your body up to infections, diseases, and scarring, which can have a devastating effect to a person’s overall health. Tattoos can also cause person to have chronic skin disorders such as sarcoid, keloid scarring, allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, benign and malignant tumors. In some cases people suffer an allergic reaction from the tattoo ink(here).

1990s sex symbol and Baywatch television star Pamela Anderson,  is the prime example of the health dangers of tattooing, after contracting hepatitis C(serious liver disease), she got disease by sharing a tattoo needle with her ex-husband rock star Tommie Lee.

What Would Jesus Do(WWJD) on Tatttoos

If you are someone who received a tattoo in ignorance before you became saved or after getting saved, I am not saying that you are not saved, you did out of ignorance. However, we are trying to teach the youth and babes in Christ in today’s church not get caught up in the culture of the world. Our purpose is to enlighten and educated the church in the way of holiness (Leviticus 10:10-11).

Some may say will Endtimeshofar, that is Old Testament scripture, were not under the "law or the Old Testament," were under the New Testament and grace. Your outdated and out of touch of what is going on in today times, even in  the Book of Revelation(Revelation 19:16) Jesus has a tattoo on his thigh that says He is the "Lord of lords and Kings of kings." This is false teaching to any one  who teaches this is heresy, Jesus would never have a tattoo, because He is Jewish number one, and number two He came to fulfill the Torah(Law) and not destroy the Torah(Law), three He would be in direct violation of Torah(here). Even with that being said, someone that got tattoos before getting saved shouldn't continue to get tattoos(this is called repentance), or even some young person thinking about getting a tattoo because it is culturally relevant needs to take not just look at Leviticus 19:28 scripture into account, but Exodus 20:4 put a graven image on your body whether or not it is a Christian tattoo it violates the Word of God. Again our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. So why would you want to violate "the Word" and your body?

Let us not learn the way of the heathen (Jeremiah 10:2), but fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13). We’re in Babylon, but Babylon is not in our hearts (1 John 2: 15-16).

Drunken Anointing: False Church Revival

This is an outstanding documentary by Andrew Strom called False Spirits Invade the Church- Kundalini Warning. Just because something is popular, and big in crowd numbers in church service doesn't mean that the Spirit of God is behind it. What were seeing is the rise of false prophets, and people following these false revivals are being given over to doctrines of devils that is deceiving the masses. We need to be able to spiritually discern what is the Spirit of God and what is demonic in nature.
