The Beastly Sick Men From Turkey Elevated To Level Of Outcast In Europe

Accusing & Discouraging — with empty Pride

Jesus was tempted in the desert. And Lent is a time of temptation, a time of desert. We expect provocations, attacks, insults more temptation in this time. The devil likes nothing more than to make you as miserable as he is. And he knows that if you are feeling discouraged you are likely to be less cooperative with God’s grace But God does not allow anything that he cannot use for good; he can even use temptation and attacks from the devil for our conversion, transformation and holiness.

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. Saint Augustine

Comparing oneself favorably to others. is exactly what the devil wants. The devil wants you to think you are better than other people so that you could grow in pride.

The army of demons’ is on loose

Isn’t it interesting to see things unfolding fast before our very own eyes? Look how frequently the Antichrist Turkish leaders are forced to open their mouths in pride and embarrassment so that we could be able learn about their satanic thoughts and intentions. Every day, it seems we see one more symptom, one more example, of how evil is moving in the world. But, children of Jesus Christ know that Satan has a short time to reign.

To an Antichrist loving world, it is okay for the Muslim Gog of Turkey to randomly spew insults, put-downs and anti christian slurs. No wonder we don’t see harsh retaliatory actions against Turkey from the lost liberal world

The beast was allowed to speak arrogant and insulting things. It was given authority to act for 42 months.[Revelation 13:5]

Let’s see what Satan Erdogan and  his mutant army said these past days — Thank You, Jesus for opening their filthy, blasphemous mouth:

Turkey, an anti-christian nation which is responsible for the massacre of 3 million Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Christians – and a country which in the past worked together with fascists and Nazis accused Germany and the Netherlands of Nazi practices. PROJECTION – how ironic! Just a year ago, Turkey’s President Erdogan cites ‘Hitler’s Germany’ as example of an effective form of government. They love Hitler, and they want war, don’t they?

Everyone was surprised back in November when this story was revealed: Eritrean Arabic Translator: Muslim Migrants Secretly Hate Christians, Seek to Outbreed Them

Now, no more secret, here you have it all:

You Are Europe’s Future’: Erdogan Tells Turks in Europe Have Five Kids, Not Three

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday urged Turks resident in Europe to have five children, telling the millions strong diaspora community “you are Europe’s future.”

Turkey and Europe are locked in a bitter spat after Germany and the Netherlands blocked Turkish ministers from holding rallies to campaign for a ‘yes’ vote in next month’s referendum on expanding Erdogan’s powers.

Erdogan has repeatedly accused EU states of behaving like Nazi Germany over what he sees as discrimination against Turks, in comments that have caused outrage across the continent.

From here I say to my citizens, I say to my brothers and sisters in Europe… Educate your children at better schools, make sure your family live in better areas, drive in the best cars, live in the best houses,” said Erdogan.

Have five children, not three. You are Europe’s future.”

This is the best answer to the rudeness shown to you, the enmity, the wrongs,” he added in a televised speech in the city of Eskisehir, south of Istanbul.

Some 2.5 million Turkish citizens resident in Europe are eligible to vote in elections in their homeland. But millions more people living in EU states have Turkish origins.

Erdogan, a father of four, has previously urged women in Turkey to have at least three children to help boost the population, in comments denounced by women’s rights activists.

Selected Comments:

This is a declaration of war on our society. Kick Turkey out of NATO, make it a pariah state, trade embargo etc. Round up all Turks and send them back, no exceptions. Proscribe islam and come down hard on Muslim rioters, return all migrants immediately. Europe’s future is in the balance and we must act fast. Erdogan is banking on us being the tolerant people we have always been and allowing Islam to conquer Europe by stealth, we must fight fire with fire.

I presume the leftards will be having an “emergency” protest outside the Turkish embassy at this sexist pronouncement?

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is just about closing time for this world. Muslims are playing for keeps and the liberals are on their side.

What more proof does anyone need to realize that it was NEVER about immigration and assimilation. It was ALWAYS about taking over via the Caliphate! Their plan is no different for the USA!

They want to take over the world. I believe that the end times is coming upon us and it will be the Christians vs the Muslims. What I will never understand is why the leaders of the western world are too stupid to understand what is happening and why they are helping them. I think they are so stuck on their stupid ideology of globalism that they can’t see the danger lurking right in their faces.

It is amazing that the Muslim world tells us exactly what their intentions are, and half our population refuses to believe them. Or do they just not care?

That is nothing new. Hitler laid out his plans years in advance. People just refused to believe him.

Globalism is this era’s re-invented Satanism. Evil is right out in the open and calls itself “Good.” The followers of Molloch and Baal all line up with Globalism. They are quite easy to spot actually. No one is bothering to hide it.

Our so called “leaders” are either planted members of this insanely hostile tribe, or compromised traitors that the tribe controls.

The only problem with that is that where ever they do rule, they start killing each other (that’s the good part), but they also destroy every society that they become a part of.

The denial by liberals across the globe will actually cause the coming civil war. They have basically said nothing is wrong with Islam and anybody that thinks so deserves condemnation.

This refugee crisis did not just happen. All the war in the Middle East facilitated it.

A righteous man respects the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. [Proverbs 12:10]

Fasika (Easter) In Ethiopia

GOOD FRIDAY

Church of St Mary of Zion , Axum – photo by M.Torres, via Travel-Images.com

The solemn liturgical service of Good Friday is attended by thousands of believers. There is a sense of sorrow and desolation. All the symbols, images and instruments used in the passion of the Saviour are publicly exhibited in the church.

Men and women go to church to prostrate themselves, remaining there from early morning till 3 p.m. the hour of the death of Jesus Christ. Believers confess their greater and lesser offenses to the confessor or sit reading their Psalter. It is believed that on

Good Friday blood fell from Christ on the cross and dripped into the grave of Adam beneath and there rose up from the dead about 500 people; the thief on the left was sent into darkness but the one on the right went before Adam into Paradise.

On this Friday the Devil was bound with cords and Christ descending to purgatory (seol) sent forth to paradise all the souls that were in darkness (Seol). Good Friday is a special day for confession.

Why The Good Thief Was Pardoned

Is Technology Evil?

Posted by addisethiopia on March 14, 2009

celllent

“And he gives to all, small and great, the poor and those who have wealth,   the free and those who are not free, a mark on their right hand or on their brows; So that no man might be able to do trade but he who has the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17

A couple of days ago I read a story about, Catholic bishops and priests in Italy asking churchgoers to make the ultimate sacrifice – and give up text messages, TV, iPods and Facebook for Lent. What could be their motivation for issuing such a warning?


We should be certain that, anyone who watches a TV is capable of knowing that Satan can come in many forms. He can be disguised as a very tempting sexy woman, a snake, a superhuman who can do whatever he/she wants, a magician who can wield a pitchfork etc.


But who would have guessed that the devious lord of hell would be a Web site? So, could it be “Facebook.”? This “networking” site allegedly offers to help the typical lonely, needy college students find each other. A place online where we can connect and form key bonds and lasting friendships. Or may be not.


Technology is a wonderful thing if we know how to use it properly. But, over the last couple of weeks I’ve reached a profound conclusion, that Satan, as well, is using technology to destroy humanity. One of the fun things about watching technology march by like a parade — one where all the bands get smaller and rounder as time goes on — is seeing new interpretations of the Bible based on the latest advances.


Early last century, the Mark of the Beast was your Social Security card, which presumably was encoded into the Computer Punch Card of the Beast and fed into Satan’s Mainframe.


After that, the Mark of the Beast was your credit card, and in the ’70s the UPC symbol was the new Mark, presumably because of the passage in Revelations stating, “And the mark was placed upon the Wonder Bread, both white and the kind they call wheat, even though it’s basically a slightly more tan version of the white stuff.”


Now, of course, the Mark of the Beast is RFID chips. It’s not enough that they might get your purchases tracked or your identity stolen, they might also get you booked into the Hotel Inferno for all eternity. Soon we will have TV or Movies on our eyes through contact lenses.


I think Bible believers, followers and/or thumpers are really overlooking the other technological warnings inherent in Revelation. Here are some actual Bible verses, and the cutting-edge technology to which they clearly refer:


“And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.”


This is obviously a reference to file sharing. The “stars” in question are the hard-working entertainers of the world, “falling to earth” because of the “casting” of their works to and fro like figs (figs were the main form of entertainment in the ancient world) by a “mighty wind.” A mighty wind? Like a “torrent,” perhaps?


In Revelation 6:15 we read further, “And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains.


Clearly the “hiding” is the anonymity provided by “dens” of personal web spaces like Facebook and MySpace. The rocks are friends lists or something… Once the mighty men start joining Facebook, we’re screwed. So, please don’t do it, mighty men!


One that will no doubt rock the foundations of both social life and established religious thought could come through technology. Could the devil be lurking behind Facebook to suck the soul of unconscious and unaware folks?.


Of course, the weak are easy prey to Facebook’s temptations. We all show weakenss one way or the other. I used to check Facebook first. And there goes my afternoon. For many, it is difficult to wrap their mind around the mysterious allure of Facebook. Someone may add a new band to his “favorite music” category. Friends may reveal their likes of scary movies or some other weired things. Actually, if one tells you in person, you seriously won’t care. But when someone updates their profile, of course, we are there checking it out.


True, every once in a while people hook up or break up, and without Facebook we might have to wait a couple of hours to get the news. But who wants to hear this stuff in person when the message can be delivered by Facebook’s tactful “broken-heart” icon? Probably no one! Another thing everyone likes on Facebook is when people add photos, another enjoyable diversion. But, to me, I can’t help but feel a strictly Facebook-related kind of shame when I realize I’ve spent the last 15 or so minutes clicking through pictures full of people I don’t even know, discovering the test of exhaustion and depression.


If a photograph can steal your soul, what can an online profile do? Facebook keeps constant tabs on us all. It wants our current status and our vacation plans. It makes sure we are searchable at all times. You think Facebook is taking you places, connecting you with the world. But it’s really just putting you in your place, and your place is Facebook. This site is not your friend. It’s an insidious assault on your time and your brain cells. It doesn’t just want your soul, it already has it. Admit it: you are Facebook’s slave. You check in and report your doings, you read its messages, you receive its gifts. There is no escape. This is your world now. Sure, you can just take your butt offline. But the dark lord knows you can’t survive long without a news feed.


In the end, we ask ourselves, “what are we doing with our lives? I always used to think to much of TV was the devil, but I was wrong. Facebook and co. must be infinitely worse than reruns of “Friends”.
