Human Sacrifice in New York | You Celebrate Halloween which is Devoted to Death and Satan, You’re Gonna Reap Death and Satan

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on November 1, 2017

It’s known in the past that human sacrifices were performed during pagan Druid/Celtic celebrations of Halloween.

Merle Severy, “The Celts,” National Geographic (May 1977), pages 625-626, describes “the eve of Samhain… the start of the Celtic new year:

According to the Dinshenchas, a medieval collection of “the lore of prominent places,” firstborn children were sacrificed before a great idol to ensure fertility of cattle and crops. Samhain eve was a night of dread and danger. At this juncture of the old year and the new, our world and the otherworld opened up to each other. The dead returned, ghosts and demons were abroad, and the future could be seen.. . . Behind such Halloween games as bobbing for apples lie Celtic divination arts to discern who would marry, thrive, or die in the coming year. Behind the masks and mischief, the jack-o’lanterns and food offerings, lurk the fear of malevolent spirits and the rites to propitiate them.”

Julius Caesar on Celtic Sacrifices

The whole nation of the Gauls is greatly devoted to ritual observances, and for that reason those who are smitten with the more grievous maladies and who are engaged in the perils of battle either sacrifice human victims or vow so to do, employing the druids as ministers for such sacrifices. They believe, in effect, that, unless for a man’s life a man’s life be paid, the majesty of the immortal gods may not be appeased; and in public, as in private life they observe an ordinance of sacrifices of the same kind. Others use figures of immense size whose limbs, woven out of twigs, they fill with living men and set on fire, and the men perish in a sheet of flame. They believe that the execution of those who have been caught in the act of theft or robbery or some crime is more pleasing to the immortal gods; but when the supply of such fails they resort to the execution even of the innocent.

The Bible tells us:

The LORD your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” You must not worship the LORD your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the LORD hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods. See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it. [Deuteronomy 12:29-32]

This is exactly what’s happening again in today’s “civilized” world. Westerners are now conditioned to celebrate death through festivities like “Halloween”, “Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead  in Mexico — they too are killing each other)”, through horror and scary movies, theaters and games. Folks are sacrificing their children again!

Halloween is America’s second favorite „religious holiday“, in the amount of money spent to Christmas. Think about that! You celebrate a holiday devoted to death and Satan, you’re gonna reap death and Satan!

Demonic rituals, costume parties, trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and haunted houses. The ghosts and ghouls are a reminder of the day’s dark origins in ancient Celtic history, when Oct. 31 was believed to be the night when ghosts of the dead returned to earth.

By the way, yesterday Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation turned 500 – and it’s celebrated parallel to Halloween. What does Halloween have to do with the Reformation? Plenty. Halloween played a pivotal role in religious history as Reformation Day. It wasn’t coincidence that Martin Luther chose that particular date to release “The 95 Theses” in Wittenberg, Germany, setting in motion the biggest religious upheaval in history.

The reason Martin Luther (above image: celebrating Halloween) chose that date was because the next day was All Saints’ Day,” Martinson said. The Catholic All Saints’ Day, celebrated on Nov. 1, is dedicated to honoring saints (those who have attained heaven)

Yesterday, just hours before 8 New Yorkers were brutally sacrificed, major terrorist attack’ was thwarted with Syrian’s arrest in Germany. By coincidence?

Lucifer – who is now a common god of Westerners and Muslims (sEdomites & Ishmaelites) – uses his children to murder innocent people as a sacrifice to him. Look how Muslims are celebrating death – yesterday in New York – and earlier all over the world — they always celebrate victory in death. In fact, there is a conviction upheld of Muslims, We love death more than you love life!

The Bible tells us:

Neo-Pagan Europe (Esau) Using Muslims (Ishmael ) in the War Against Christianity

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 30, 2017

French High Court Orders Removal of Cross Above Statue of Pope John Paul II


The French administrative court has ordered the removal of a cross from a monument to Saint John Paul II in a public square in the northwest of France, saying it violates the secular nature of the state.

Italian media noted the irony of the ruling, remarking that the cross-removal is not taking place “in Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State in Syria, but in Brittany, in the heart of Western Europe.”

The Conseil d’Etat, France’s highest administrative court, ruled last week that the statue of the Polish Pope in Ploërmel, Brittany, could remain but the large cross above the monument must be eliminated.

Since the cross is a religious sign or emblem within the meaning of Article 28 of the Law of 9 December 1905 and its installation by the municipality does not fall into any of the exceptions provided by this article, its presence in a public location is contrary to this law,” argued the French court.

The law of 1905, which separates Church and State, forbids “raising or affixing any symbol or religious emblem on public monuments or in any public place,” with the exception of museums, cemeteries and places of worship.

The 25-foot high monument was donated to mayor Paul Anselin by Russian artist Zurab Tsereteli in 2006 and erected in a town square. The sculpture depicts Pope John Paul standing in prayer with his hands clasped, with a simple arch above him, surmounted by a cross.

In 2015, the Rennes tribunal had already ordered the removal of the entire statue but upon appeal, the high court allowed the statue to remain, provided the offending cross disappears.

The city of Ploërmel now has six months to eliminate the cross, and must pay €3000 to the National Federation of Free Thought (Fédération nationale de la libre-pensée), which has been leading the legal battle to have the statue removed since 2015.

Over the weekend social networks in France lit up with the viral hashtag #MontreTaCroix (“Show your cross”), with which many Internet users have shared images of crosses taken everywhere around the country. Many have used the campaign to recall France’s Christian roots, calling the symbol inseparable from the history of France.

Gilles Pennelle, the president of the National Front party in Brittany’s Regional Council, pointed out the paradox that “the French court allows burkinis on the beaches but bans a cross over the statue of John Paul II in Ploërmel.”

Pakistani Christian ‘Beaten for Car Poppy Display’ Warns ‘More and More Muslim Violence Is Coming Into Britain’


A spokesman for Derbyshire Police said: “We were called to a report of an assault outside the Red Chilli restaurant, in Littleover, at around 8:45pm.

He was hospitalised at the Royal Derby Hospital with a broken nose and we have not yet arrested anyone in connection with the assault.”

Wilson Chowdhry, Chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, said: “This unprovoked attack on a Christian for simply displaying a cross and two large poppies is an example of the religious intolerance that some strands of radical Islam promote in Britain.”

Breitbart London previously reported on father-of-two Faisal Bashir, who called on police to do more to tackle hatred coming from Muslim communities after he was driven from his home by a campaign of harassment after he left Islam.

However, while authorities have driven “hate crime” to the top of the agenda in recent months, police have been accused of reluctance to act when the perpetrator is from a minority ethnic group.

In addition, recent campaigns and initiatives against “hate crime” taking place across the country have been run in partnership with discredited “anti-Islamophobia” organisation Tell MAMA, with Transport for London and police having visited mosques across the city, encouraging Muslims to report “perceived” so-called “hate crimes”.

This country is in deep trouble. What will become of it in another 50 years i dread to think..

Why is this allowed to happen in the UK?

Europe is dead

Where is the fury? This story is buried below diesel car emissions. If it was the other way around, there would be riots in the streets.

Don’t think we will see this on BBC news somehow

The same is happening all over America so don’t blame the inhabitants, just the politically correct courts and atheist/Marxist/treasonous activists.

Europe is falling to the invaders and the current government is trying to hold on through appeasement. (Pssst, it won’t work.)

No one complained about crosses for 110 years, I wonder if this is about appeasing a certain religious community in france……

The law of 1905 wasn’t a problem in 2006.
I wonder what has changed since then? Muslims came!
Christianity and any symbolism OFFENDS them.

Meanwhile hundreds of muzrats block the streets in Paris on a Friday to devil worship and the police do nothing. So much for separation of church and state

You see, when a government tries to impose Sharia Law in a Christian nation, they can expect a public backlash. So the solution is to dilute and diminish (over time) that Christianity .
This is what is happening.

They want remove Christianity from Europe – they must think it a good place to start.

It won’t be long now before the communists contrive a famine to starve the people. That’s been their go to plan for a hundred years across the globe.
The French won’t save themselves by any means but violence. It is not the immigrants doing. It’s the elites that are using the muslims to enforce totalitarianism like boiling a frog.

The EU against The Greek Orthodox Church


From the video:

Wow the EU wants to start a holy war throwing the Greek Orthodox Church in the mix!

The EU wants Greece to relinquish the Greek Islands, Christian Orthodox Religion, wow! Take public banks and turning them over to private sector? Really that’s treasonous.

Former Belgium prime minister and member of the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt responded angrily to Alexis Tsipras’ speech at the European Parliament. His video has gone viral online.

Cannibalism LIVE on CNN: Muslim Writer And CNN Reporter Eats Human Brains

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 10, 2017

Reza Aslan is a famous Muslim American writer and journalist for CNN. In a recent documentary where he was spending time with the “aghoris,” which are a Hindu death-worshipping cult that feasts on human remains and surrounds themselves with death, he was given a piece of human brain to eat. Aslan picked up the cooked brains, ate it, and then said on CNN camera ‘It tastes like charcoal’:

In an episode of Believer, a six-part CNN series on spirituality, US religious scholar Reza Aslan meets with the Aghori, a nomadic Hindu sect in India.

The interview went south and one of the mystics turned nasty

The group believes that nothing can taint the human body and rejects the Hindu caste system, which deems certain groups of people untouchable.

After Aslan has bathed in the sacred Ganges river, an Aghori scholar smears the ashes of a cremated body on his face and he is given alcohol served in a human skull.

Then he is given a piece of burned human brain and eats it, reports the Washington Post.

He said: “Want to know what a dead guy’s brain tastes like? Charcoal.”

He added: “It was burnt to a crisp!” (source)

There is speculation by some that the aghori, who became mad at Aslan and later threatened to cut his head off as they were throwing their own feces at him. That is ultimately besides the point, because it does not matter what “culture” anybody is in- there is something naturally and viscerally wrong with cannibalism. There is something seriously wrong with Anybody who would anybody that by freedom of choice would engage in cannibalism.

This man- who would say that drinking alcohol and eating pork is something dirty, sinful, and bad and be banned- just ate a piece of another human being and then bragged about it on a major television show.

But is this really a surprise at all?

Something that people do not want to talk about is the fact that Islam permits cannibalism, but in spite of this shoebat.com has been at the forefront of documenting through articles and photographic or video proof how Muslims have ritually slaughtered and then eaten their victims (just do a search for cannibal). Theologically speaking, this is the natural conclusion of Islam’s denial of the human person, for as humanity in Islam comes from one’s belief in and practice of Islam, to eat a non-Muslim would be considered no different than eating an animal, the difference being that unlike pork, there is no specific prohibition against it. But has anybody ever asked why?

God warned the Hebrews not to do this. Unfortunately, it still continues today in different forms, such as abortion.

The great Christians saints throughout history (such as St. John of Damascus and Bl. Peter the Venerable of Montbossier) all said that while Islam is evil, it is fundamentally the culmination of all Christian heresy. Since many Christian heresies are influenced by paganism, one can naturally find the worst of the ancient pagan teachings in Islam but with the veneer of theological license and presented as the ‘answer’ to Christianity. While not per se practiced by a majority throughout history, many ancient pagan religious teachings gave license to human sacrifice and even cannibalism in some form. Even the Bible talks about how the ancient Hebrews were continually warned against participating in the sacrifices of their young children to the pagan gods of their Semitic neighbors.

Human sacrifice and cannibalism is found in Islam as well as many pagan cultures, such as with the Aztec. While it is evil, human sacrifice is a subconscious human attempt to enter into the divine mysteries of Christ and the Eucharist that would be revealed by God Himself through Christ.

The answer to why human sacrifice and cannibalism are found in paganism is twofold. For if the law of God is built into man’s creation, than he understands by instinct without even knowing that somehow, men give their lives for another and that this is connected to worship of the divine. Thus human sacrifice in the pagan world is a corrupt understanding of the sacrifice that while evil, is a part of the search for truth that comes with Christianity where God Himself comes and offers himself as the great sacrifice for the sins of men.

This is the real human sacrifice- made by God Himself for the salvation of fallen man.

This same approach applies to cannibalism. St. John reports in his gospel, chapter 6:

I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” So Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever.” (John 6:48-58)

This is something that many Protestant Christians do not want to talk about, but the fact is clear that for 1500 years prior to the Protestant movement and even Martin Luther, the Protestant Revolutionary himself, all taught that the Eucharist- the bread and the wine at mass- become the body and blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. If the beliefs was not enough, then there have been countless Eucharistic miracles throughout history where the host will publicly bleed or the wine clearly become blood and have been proven by science yet unable to be explained by any natural means from the same scientists.

Islam came after Christianity, and while many Muslims are Muslims by birth, the fact is that Islam is a religion which came to say that Christianity is wrong and in order to find “truth,” one must undo what Christianity did, and what Christianity did (and still does when practiced) is to stamp out the wicked paganism of old and set men on the straight and true path which leads to God.

So don’t be surprised when Muslims do things like what Reza did for this show. After all, it is only in accordance with the nature and teachings of the religion he so ardently believes in and promotes.

German Carnival Floats Depict Decapitated Trump, Hitler Comparisons

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 28, 2017

rsz_gettyimages-645897728-640x480

German cities held their annual Rose Monday float parades today, with many mocking U.S. President Donald Trump, Brexit, and European populist leaders.

The carnival celebrations in Germany are one of the biggest holidays of the year and a part of the celebrations are a float parade on Rosenmontag or Rose Monday.

From Cologne to Dusseldorf the major theme of the float parades this year was U.S. President Trump, whom they depicted performing sex acts with the Statue of Liberty, and being decapitated by a guillotine.

In Dusseldorf, President Trump was shown performing a sex act on the statue of liberty, a criticism by the satirist that he was “screwing liberty” because of his travel ban against countries know to either sponsor terrorism or harbour large radical Islamic extremist elements.

Another float in the parade showed the Statue of Liberty with the severed head of the President with “America Resist!” painted on her chest. The float was likely referencing the controversial cover of German magazine Der Spiegel in which Trump was portrayed cutting off the head of the statue in an Islamic state-style execution.

Trump was joined by Front National French leader Marine le Pen, and Dutch firebrand leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) Geert Wilders in a float that compared the trio to a blonde Adolf Hitler. The float read “blonde is the new brown”.

In Cologne, the violent imagery toward the U.S. President was also on display. President Trump’s severed head was shown on one float hung from a guillotine.

Selected comments:

Oh my God, I have never seen anything more repulsive. Germany is going down, fast.

gettyimages-645896428-1024x714

Within hours of one of their own citizens having his head sawed off by Muslims on camera in the Philippines the Germans depict Trump being decapitated. Germans are a sick, moronic, masochistic people. Good luck with your Muslims,Germany. You’re gonna need it. GFYS

Maybe the Germans deserve what they are getting… They are obviously very, very confused about who the enemy is. It’s the Germans that are getting bent over, with the beheading soon to come.

If they keep behaving this way i would say yes. And what sort of sicko puts out floats like that within a day of a German being beheaded in Philippines? Sick

Its called having your country being Ruled by Satan!! This is spiritual warfare! I don’t know which country is more far gone, Germany or Sweden? I think both are lost causes!!

Hey Germany, how is your rape culture there?
Say Hi to Merkel for us.

I bet the real German people are very ashamed that these lefty nutters are Germans like themselves.

You’re done, Germany. You took a suicide pill under that lunatic Merkel. We on the other hand, elected a president who thinks of his people first. If you had done the same, your women wouldn’t be getting raped every time they walk on the street. Cowardice + ignorance = submission. Better start learning the koran.

They need to make the floats more realistic, by replacing Trump with themselves, because that’s how They are going to end up in the near future. Obviously the work of leftist Germans, the same ones that provided gift bags with condoms to the rapefugees. What are these people thinking ? They are definitely confused about who their enemies are. They are delusional. It’s Merkel Madness.

It never ceases to amaze me how the old countries have been overrun by this bunch of completely suicidal fools. None are so blind as those who can see, but refuse to believe what’s right in front of them in plain sight.

What in their agenda is so precious to them that they would kill themselves trying to achieve it? PLEASE President Trump, WITHDRAW the USA from NATO!! Why in the HELL would ANY AMERICAN be willing to go and Die for these Globalist SCUM!!

These Germans use the same language, same symbols and follow the same agenda as the radical Islamists: to kill people with a different opinion and call for attacks and murder on other countries leaders and citizens. So they even justify terrorism. Again Germany has declared war on the sane world. Just treat them in the same way. All the smart citizens have left already, so you won’t hit the wrong ones.

Pre WW11,Germany’s Hitler and the Muslims were REAL Tight. History repeat perhaps?

“Deutschland beherrscht den nationalen Selbstmord!” (“Germany is committing national suicide!”) Please Germany, if you want to kill yourselves in your godless, liberal, pleasure-seeking, Muslim-infested rape fest, don’t assume we Americans, the British, the Polish, the Dutch, the French, or the Hungarians want to commit national suicide too!

We Germans are fed up with it too, you have to understand these cities are socialist (SPD) controlled cities (like California Dems) ,and they have forbidden the floats of AFD(conservatives). Its a straight propaganda tool because a lot of kids attend carnival (like Halloween in USA ) and they want to get in their brains early. that’s what it is. Plus our Germans have this weird sick Nazi complex that their get trained from Kindergarten on to feel guilty for the rest of their lives! Crazy.

Seriously. They’ve allowed all semblance of decency in the public arena to go away. Carnival, as I remember it, was the last party before Lent, and ultimately a festival derived from faith. Instead it’s been replaced with propaganda where the idea of butchery of people who’s opinions you dislike and gross vulgarity is now normalized and presented as a cartoon for children.

Lenin was absolutely right about these people. They’re useful idiots, and frankly, I don’t think I’d be too upset to hear the Islamists take a few more of them for this kind of stupidity.

I am German and never liked the German carnival, because its vulgar and embarrassing. On the other hand I accepted the political statements as being harsh and and exaggerated, because formerly every political direction was attacked in the same way. This time everything is different. The march has obviously been completely occupied by leftist globalists. Nearly no politician from the left was attacked and no Muslim or refugee was attacked.

Just to let you Americans know, those Floats (almost all of those insulting ones) are mainly designed by one person – Jacques_Tilly : https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/… . Different Opinions were not allowed by the city . AFD floats were forbidden. That’s how our “democracy” in Germany works. Other opinions are not allowed, similar to the US. What the media reports in Germany is the same thing what your media reports(all fake), so please don’t judge us Germans, we are even more screwed than you. Only Left views are allowed everybody else is a “racist Nazi”.

WWI – to create the League of Nations.
WWII – to create the United Nations.
WWIII – to create NWO, totalitarian control, full spectrum domination.

My Note: This picture was taken, again, on the same spot, in front of the famous Cologne cathedral, where in 2015 thousands of German women were sexually assaulted by Muslim rapefugees. The alliance between jihadists and leftists continues: The pagan sodomite left invited their oriental Satan-worshiping pedophile brothers in arms to wage war on Christianity. Three famous Christian landmarks…it couldn’t get more symbolic than this:

Major Pagan god Of Bible Honored By World Government

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 23, 2017

ishmael-a-wild-man

It was unveiled in London. It was displayed in New York, just steps away from Ground Zero. And now, the harbinger of the pagan god Baal has been used to welcome participants to a summit dedicated to “world government.”

The World Government Summit recently held a meeting in Dubai, bringing together some of the most important leaders in government and business to discuss international problems.

Past attendees of the summits have included former President Barack Obama and former U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

But this year, it featured a reconstruction of the Arch of Palmyra, the Roman triumphal arch that once welcomed travelers to the ancient Temple of Baal in the Syrian outpost of the empire.

Baal worship featured rites of child sacrifice and sexual immorality. Some Christians have connected the pagan cult to the practices praised by “liberals” today.

Yet Rabbi Pinchas Winston identified another troubling connection in Breaking Israel News. He argues the erection of monuments to Baal, specifically one of Roman origin now being built in an Arab nation at a summit dedicated to world government, signifies an alliance against Israel.

Rabbi Winston claims it is a sign of Arabs “continuing the mission of Edom to conquer the world.”

Pastor Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries, author of “Esau Rising,” accepts this analysis.

As far as a collaboration between certain Western powers and the Islamic world with the intent of isolating and destroying Israel, I wholeheartedly agree with the rabbi’s take on this,” he told WND. “This is another manifestation of an ages old alliance between these two antichrist spirits. In ‘Esau Rising,’ I made the argument that the spirit of Esau is alive and well, still plotting Israel’s demise. Those deemed as Esau or Edom – the name given to his descendants – don’t necessarily have to be physical descendants. Edom is defined as those who take up his cause and who behave as he would.”

Cloud said there is a great deal of precedent when it comes to an alliance between “Rome” and the enemies of Israel.

In this context, I think it’s important to point out that Herod the Great, who ruled under the auspices of Rome, was not Jewish but, according to Josephus, an Edomite,” Cloud explained. “In other words, it was a collaboration between Western powers and the sworn enemy of Israel. Remember, it was Herod who sought to kill the infant Messiah.

As far as Esau’s affiliation with the Islamic world, the Bible tells us that, when Jacob left for Padan Aram to find a wife, Esau realized his parents did not approve of his marriages to the women of Canaan. Instead of putting them away, he traveled to Arabia and took as his third wife one of Ishmael’s daughters. In effect, he formed an alliance with the Ishmaelites knowing they hated Isaac and Jacob. This alliance between Edom and Ishmael has adversely affected God’s people throughout history. For instance, the Roman X legion – the one that sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the Temple in 70 A.D. – was comprised primarily of Arabs and Syrians.

So when you see Western nations aligning themselves with Muslim nations and talking about one-world government, then you know that this alliance is plotting something.”

Scriptural teacher Joel Richardson, the New York Times bestselling author of several books, including “The Islamic Antichrist,” and his latest, “Mystery Babylon,” argues this idea of a Western-led alliance against Israel is a pattern well established in Judaism.

Rabbinic Judaism has a tradition that casts Edom as a code-word for Rome or Western Christendom,” he told WND. “Throughout the prophets, Edom represents the greatest eschatological enemy of Israel. In Ezekiel, it is Edom that is the embodiment of ‘the everlasting hatred,’ or ‘perpetual enmity’ toward Israel (Ezekiel 35:5). This tradition is based on a legend that one of Edom’s descendants had traveled to Europe and is the father of much of what has come to become Western Christianity.”

Richardson, who chronicled the history of the church’s tragic hostility to Jews in “When a Jew Rules the World,” nonetheless, says this is tradition is misguided.

Of course, it is understandable that many of the Jews see Christendom through such a lens, having been such persistent and hostile force to European Jewry,” he said. “The problem, however, is that Edom has never represented Christianity in the Bible. It has always been a reference to the end time enemies of Israel which is most concentrated in the peoples who most surround Israel. Today, the world is awakening to the fact that Islam indeed has a plan to influence the world and demonize Israel. The culmination of the hatred of the nations toward God’s covenant people is increasingly becoming manifest.

On one hand, we must see this as the prophetic fulfillment of what God said He would do if His people continued to reject Him. On the other hand, it is important that Christians do not make the same mistakes of the past and fail to stand with Israel during the coming time of Jacob’s trouble, as illustrated in Jeremiah 30, Daniel 12, and Matthew 24.”

One of the greatest mysteries in Scripture – solved at last! Discover the terrifying truth behind the shadowy identity of one of the greatest horrors of the End Times. New York Times bestselling author Joel Richardson reveals the secret of “Mystery Babylon.”

Some pastors said the implications of the Baal imagery even goes beyond opposition to Israel. The ancient Canaanite deity is a symbol for man’s rebellion against God.

This is quite an incredible story as Baal represents the god man creates in his own image when he rebels against the true God who created man in His image,” said Mark Biltz. “Man refuses to be under God’s authority so he builds a god in his own image, a god he can have authority over.”

Pastor Carl Gallups, author of “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time,” agreed the arch is a symbol of rebellion against God, and its presence at a meeting dedicated to “world government” is ominous.

The spirit of Baal, described as sexual perversion, licentiousness, power and wealth, is undoubtedly sweeping the planet,” he warned. “There is a definite spiritual pattern developing before our eyes. There is a connection here that much of the world may be missing. This now world-renowned and traveling symbol of Baal made its debut in London on April 19, 2016, which happened to coincide with the opening of the World Government Summit. Nothing spiritual or prophetic there – right?”

Gallups argued the revival of this ancient cult, if only in a subtle form, is yet another sign the world is moving toward the last days.

Baal, one of the most ancient idol-gods in the world, dubbed by the pagan world as ‘ruler of the earth,’ appears to be making a world tour, right in the middle of the most profound biblically prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ,” he warned. “It’s as if, in the spiritual realm, Satan is claiming Europe, the United States, Africa and the Middle East as ‘his territory.’ And in so doing, he would actually be claiming domination of practically the entire globe.

Now, the arch’s display in major economic and world power centers – coinciding with spiritually important events, is a little too much coincidence to be mere coincidence. It is also as if Satan’s spiritual claim is being laid upon the financial and government capitols of the world, a move that symbolizes the eventual interconnection of the planet – the biblically stated goal of Satan’s last days’ plan. The secular mind will miss these spiritual implications entirely, but those who know anything about the historical and spiritual significance of Baal and its deep connection to biblical prophecy of the End Times can easily make the connection.”

Extraordinary events predicted centuries in advance are unfolding now. Here is your guide to the incredible prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Don’t miss the bestselling sensation from one of America’s most prolific and beloved pastors. “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time” by Carl Gallups.

Biltz, discoverer of the “Blood Moons” phenomenon and the author of “God’s Day Timer,” also believes the recurrence of Baal is part of a scriptural pattern dooming the people of Israel to endless conflict.

We see the connection between Esau and Ishmael represented by the Arabs when Esau marries into Ishmael’s family in Genesis 28:8-9,” the pastor explained. “The result of this union is horrific for Israel as it produces Amalek, Esau’s grandson as we see in Genesis 36:12. Amalek was the first nation to attack Israel as they left Egypt and God declared that Israel would have war with Amalek in every generation. As a matter of fact, here we are three weeks from Purim when this summit is taking place. Purim is the story of Esther when Haman the Amalekite wants to completely destroy the Jewish people!

The union of Ishmael and Esau at this time represents a biblical pattern of an attempt to destroy Israel one more time. Amazingly, when Israel gave birth to Esau and Jacob the Lord told Rebekah two nations were in her womb and there would be battles between them. And today we see people wanting to divide Israel into two nations not realizing two nations will never work but the elder will serve the younger. The battle has always been over the birthright of the Land of Israel.”

The Bible story is more miraculous and astounding than you could have imagined. See the incredible proof of the unchanging nature of God – and the exciting clues to what awaits at the end of days in “God’s Day Timer” by Mark Biltz.

Yet all of this is ultimately a reflection of the largest story in world history – the battle of the one true God of Israel versus the false gods created by man.

There are many false gods mentioned by name in the Bible – Ashtoreth, Chemosh, Dagon, Molech, Tammuz,” says Joseph Farah, founder of WND.com and author of the new book, “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.” “But one name comes up more than other, by various spellings, in both the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, and that is Baal or Beelzebub. It’s no accident that in 2017 the World Government Summit and UNESCO and other globalist organizations and gatherings are still celebrating, honoring and paying tribute to this demon, this counterfeit god, this idol. What’s it about? It’s always about rebellion against the One True God.”

It’s the book that gives you tomorrow’s news today! Get your autographed copy of “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.”

Richardson also says all controversies of this kind derive from this central drama of human history, as God makes Himself known to mankind.

Throughout history, it has been YHVH versus false gods,” he said. “In ancient times, it was YHVH versus Baal. Later, during the Roman era, it was YHVH versus Zeus. Today, the primary spiritual battle for the souls of mankind is between YHVH and the Allah of Islam. Behind all of these false gods, of course, is Satan. This is exactly why Jesus Himself referred to the Temple at Pergamum, a temple dedicated to the worship of Zeus as, ‘the throne of Satan’ in Revelation 2.

Today, Satan is using the false religion of Islam, more than any other system in his final push to establish global dominance and receive the worship of the nations. The Bible is clear, however, that the seed of the woman, Jesus the Messiah, will crush Satan under His feet and He alone will be the object of worship throughout the nations. As the Scriptures say, ‘the knowledge of God will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.’ His name will be the name that is above every other name.”

Neo-Pagan Europe: Muslim Migration & Pedophilia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 26, 2016

Psalm127One of the reasons why a large-scale Muslim migration is taking place in Europe has something to do with the pedophilia phenomenon. As the West seems to be converting back to paganism, accepting homosexuality, incest, necrophilia, and pedophilia is the consequence. No wonder the pedophile elites are now importing and accommodating exclusively Muslims from all corners. Birds of a feather flock together.

A World Where Muslim Pedophiles Roam Freely

The West is both complicit and complacent in the evolution of a world where Muslim Jareds are left to roam freely, victimizing defenseless children in satisfaction of perverted lustful desires sanctioned by their religion

The police watchdog is examining almost 200 Rotherham officers after corrupt police, one related to the convicted groomers, allegedly conspired to protect the Muslim child sex gang.

One officer and local politician, who is a family relative of the brothers convicted yesterday, is alleged to have brokered a deal whereby one brother was given assurance that he “wouldn’t get done” if he returned one his young victims to a police station.

‘Atmosphere of fear’ at BBC Allowed Jimmy Savile to Commit Sex Crimes

More than 100 BBC staff – including some of the corporation’s biggest names – were aware of rumours about Jimmy Savile’s sexual misdemeanours, yet none of them reported the claims, an independent report has found.

Dame Janet Smith, a retired judge who has spent nearly three years examining Savile’s activities at the BBC, concluded that the presenter sexually assaulted 72 victims while working for the corporation, including boys and girls as young as eight.

But her £6.5 million report was dismissed as an “expensive whitewash” by a lawyer acting for many of Savile’s victims, after it ruled that the corporation should not be held responsible for his crimes, on the grounds that senior managers were never made aware of the allegations against him.

Famous faces at the corporation, including Dame Esther Rantzen, Sir Terry Wogan, Louis Theroux, Mike Read and Nicky Campbell, were among 117 BBC staff who were said to have been aware of rumours about Savile’s sexual conduct.

German Green Party is a Hotbed of Pedophilia 

shutterstock_97008062A lengthy investigation has revealed that the Berlin branch of the German Green party was a hotbed of paedophilia in the 80s and 90s, with as many as 1000 minors falling victim to shocking organised child abuse. The investigation was sparked by concern over a historic Green campaign to decriminalise sex with children. It has led to the party admitting that there was a “misunderstood tolerance” of paedophiles within the Greens. Two prominent Green party members at the time were members of the Association for Gays, Transsexuals and Pederasts. One of them stood for the German parliament while imprisoned for child sex offences…

Muslim M in Germany Rape Russian Child for 30 Hours, Then Get “Massacred” by Angry Russians in Reprisal

400 angry locals, who happen to be Russian immigrants in Germany, took the law into their own hands recently after a 13-year-old Russian schoolgirl was gang-raped by Muslim refugees in a vicious 30-hour ordeal. Knowing the German police would do absolutely nothing to bring the Muslim rapists to justice, the angry locals apparently put the rapists to death. (LD)

Abuses of migrants in Germany has forced local men to take up arms and teach the foreigners a lesson. The editorial office of Sovsekretno (meaning “Top Secret”) received a message about a massacre that was conducted on the town of Bruchsal by Russian immigrants to Germany — about 400 “Russian Germans”.

According to police, the scene (a migrant Hostel) was attended by around 120 cars with 3-4 Russian Germans in each. The “Southerners”, the Arabs and the Moroccans, tried to resist and fired guns. But they were beaten with baseball bats and bar stools. The “Rusaki”, as the Russian migrants in Germany call themselves, strolled across all floors, said the source to Sovsekretno about the number of Russian migrants residing in Germany.

10-Year Old Austrian Boy Raped By Iraqi Refugee Due To “Sexual Emergency”

A 20-year-old Iraqi migrant apparently raped a 10-year-old boy at the Resienbad pool in Vienna.

The attack wasn’t reported to the press at the time in order to protect the victim who ran crying to a lifeguard after the assault which took place in a “cubicle.”

The refugee – who at that point had gone back to swimming and diving – was arrested on the spot and taken into custody where he told police that he was experiencing a “sexual emergency.”

“I followed my desires,” the man said, adding that he “hadn’t had sex in four months.” He went on to say that although he was fully aware that his actions were “forbidden in any country in the world,” he had “a marked surplus of sexual energy.”

The man said he had a wife and a daughter in Iraq.

Asked if information about the attack was deliberately withheld from the public in order to avoid sparking a backlash against asylum seekers, Thomas Keiblinger, spokesman for the state police in Vienna said that the fact the man was Iraqi had nothing to do with the decision not to publicize the crime. “It played no role whatsoever,” he told Kronen Zeitung.

Migrants Who Threatened To Cut Throat Of 6-Year-Old Lied About Age To Get Into Classroom

0214df7700Two child migrants arrested in January after a 12-year-old girl was forced to perform sex acts with them are now thought to be adults at least 21 years of age.

The two men who have not been named but are reported to be Iranian citizens were officially 15 and 16-years-old at the time of their arrest four weeks ago. One of the men has now been proved to be “at least 21 years old” through dental examinations, while the second is also thought to be an adult but with no conclusive evidence having yet been brought forward, reports Bild.

The men were admitted to a children’s migrant aid centre when they arrived in Dusseldorf last year after they had managed to fool the German government over their true age. Once in the centre they were allowed into the classroom alongside other children from Dusseldorf, and they were able there to gain access to the much younger girl.

She was “compelled and forced into sexual acts” over the course of some days, said the prosecutor. Germany’s Express reports a six year old boy who discovered that the girl was being abused was threatened with having his throat cut for telling on the pair.

Muslim Migrants Raping Women & Children at German Refugee Camp Women Allegedly Forced into Prostitution

An explosive document released by top social welfare organizations in Germany reveals evidence that migrants at a refugee camp in Hessen are raping women and children, while also allegedly forcing women into prostitution.

The document was made public by LFR (Landesfrauenrat) Hessen, Der Paritätische Hessen, Pro Familia Hessen and the Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Hessischer Frauenbüros.

It asserts that women and children at a migrant camp in Hessen are being sexually molested by Muslim “refugees” on such a regular basis that they are afraid to go to the bathroom at night and have to remain fully clothed when they sleep.

Women who are not accompanied by men are considered easy prey, with some allegedly being forced into prostitution. The groups behind the letter are calling for women and children to be segregated from male migrants.

The German Government is Promoting Sexual Contact Between Parents and Children

If you cannot imagine this is true, you have to read the leaflet shown in Germany and EU to Legalise Paedophilia. The leaflet is a publication of a German Government Children’s Department, which is distributed by the million, free of charge.

EXTRACT from the link –

Canadian author and public speaker Michael O’Brien … spoke to LifeSiteNews.com as follows -…

It is, he said, “State-encouraged incest, which in most civilized societies is a crime.”

The pamphlet advises parents to permit young children “unlimited masturbation” except where physical injury becomes apparent. It advises: “Children should learn that there is no such thing as shameful parts of the body. The body is a home, which you should be proud of.” For ages 4-6, the booklet recommends teaching children the movements of copulation.

Another product of the BZgA is a song book aimed at children of four and slightly older which includes several songs espousing masturbation. The song-book entitled “Nose, belly and bum” includes one song with the following lyrics: “When I touch my body, I discover what I have. I have a vagina, because I am a girl. Vagina is not only for peeing. When I touch it, I feel a pleasant tingle.”

Millions of these leaflets are handed out free in Germany every year, so Germans cannot plead ignorance of what their government is doing.

It gets worse..

Halloween — Feast of the Beast

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on October 28, 2010


I reckon, the so-called “Halloween” pagan festival is around the corner. Then, it shouldn’t surprise us that the “Beast” comes out roaring to instruct its disciples to carry the unsuspecting victims away into the wilderness in the upfollowing festive season

As vampires, ghosts, witches, and other fearsome creatures stalk the night, communities are gearing up for the annual celebration…

Because most of us are unaware of our Tewahedo heritage, we must carefully examine every aspect of our involvement in the world – its activities, festivals, associations, and societies – to be certain whether or not these involvements are compatible with our Holy Tewahedo Faith. This difficult task can lead to some pain when we realize that we cannot take part in some popular organizations and activities.

Most of our schools, local community organizations, and entertainments in television, radio and the press will share in and capitalize upon the festival of Halloween. But Tewahedo Christians cannot participate in this event at any level. The simple issue – Fidelity to God and the Holy Tewahedo Christian Faith. Halloween has its roots in paganism, and it continues as a form of idolatry to worship Satan, the angel of death. As we know, the very foundation of our Holy Church is build upon the blood of martyrs who refused despite painful penalties to worship, venerate, or pay obeisance in any way to the idols who are Satan’s angels. Because of the faithfulness, obedience, and self-sacrifice of the Holy Martyrs, God poured out abundant Grace upon His Holy Church, whose numbers increased daily. The persecution did not stem the spread of faith. Differing from the world’s values, humble faithfulness and obedience to God were the very strength of their life in Christ, Who gave them true spiritual peace, love and joy, and participation in the miraculous workings of His Holy Spirit. Therefore, the Holy Church calls us to faithfulness by our turning away from falsehood toward Truth and eternal life.

We can stay away from the pagan festival of Halloween if we understand the spiritual danger and history of this anti-Christian feast.

The feast of Halloween began in pre-Christian times among the Celtic peoples who lived more than 2,000 years ago in what is no United Kingdom, Ireland, and northern France. These pagan peoples believed that physical life was born from death. Therefore, they celebrated the beginning of the “new year” in the fall (on the eve of October 31 and into the day of November 1), when, as they believed, the season of cold, darkness, decay and death began. The Celts believed that a certain deity, whom they called Samhain, was the lord of death. To him they gave honor at their New Year’s festival.

From an Tewahedo Christian point of view, many diabolical beliefs and practices were associated with this feast, which have endured to this current time. On the eve of the New Year’s festival, the Druids, who were the priests of the Celtic cult, instructed their people to extinguish all hearth fires and lights. On the evening of the festival they ignited a huge bonfire built from oak branches, which they believed to be sacred. Upon this fire, they offered burnt sacrifices of crops, animals, and even human beings to appease and cajole Samhain, the lord of death. They also believed that Samhain, being pleased by their faithful offerings, allowed the souls of the dead to return to homes for a festal visit on this day. This belief led to the ritual practice of wandering about in the dark dressed in costumes indicating ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, fairies and demons. The living entered into fellowship and communion with their dead by this ritual act of imitation, through costume and the wandering about in the darkness, even as the souls of the dead were believed to wander.

The dialogue of “trick-or-treat” is integral to Halloween beliefs and practices. The souls of the dead had – by Celtic tradition – entered into the world of darkness, decay, and death, and made total communion with and submission to Samhain, the lord of death. They bore the affliction of great hunger on their festal visit. This belief brought about the practice of begging as another Celtic ritual imitation of the activities of the souls of the dead on their festal visit. The implication was that any souls of the dead and their imitators who are not appeased with “treats”, i.e. offerings, will provoke the wrath of Samhain, whose angels and servants (the souls and human imitators) could retaliate through a system of “tricks” or curses.

The Tewahedo Christian must understand that taking part in these practices at any level is an idolatrous betrayal of our God and our Holy Faith. For if we imitate the dead by dressing up in or wandering about in the dark, or by begging with them, then we have willfully sought fellowship with the dead, whose Lord is not a Celtic Samhain, but is Satan the Evil One, who stands against God. Further, if we submit to the dialogue of “trick-or-treat,” our offering goes not to innocent children, but rather to Samhain, the Lord of Death whom they have come to serve as imitators of the dead, wandering in the darkness.

We must stay away from other practices associated with Halloween, the eve of the Celtic New Year festival. The Druid priests used to instruct their faithful to extinguish their hearth fires and lights and to gather around the fire of sacrifice to make their offerings and to pay homage to the Lord of Death. This sacred fire was the fire of the new year, to be taken home to rekindle lights and hearth fires. The sacred New Year’s fire developed into the practice of the Jack-o’-lantern (in the U.S.A. a pumpkin, in older days other vegetables were used), which was carved in imitation of the dead and used to convey the new light and fire to the home, where the lantern was left burning throughout the night. Even the use and display of the Jack-o’-lantern honors the Samhain, the Celtic god of death. Tewahedo Christians cannot share in this Celtic activity, but must counter the secular customs by instead burning candles to the Savior, the Most Holy Mother of God, and to all the Holy Saints.

Divination was also part of this ancient Celtic festival. After the fire had died out the Druids examined the remains of the main sacrifices, hoping to foretell the coming years events. The Halloween festival was the proper night for sorcery, fortune telling, divination, games of chance, and Satan worship and witchcraft in the later Middle Ages.

In the strictly Tewahedo early Celtic Church, the holy Fathers tried to counteract this pagan new year festival that honored the Lord of Death, by establishing the Feast of All Saints on the same day. (It differs in the East, where the Feast of All Saints is celebrated on the Sunday following Pentecost). The custom of the Celtic Church was for the faithful Christians to attend a vigil service and a morning celebration of the Holy Eucharist. This custom created the term Halloween. The Old English of All Hallow e’en, i.e., the eve commemorating all those who were hallowed (sanctified) became Halloween.

The remaining pagan and therefore anti-Christian people, whose paganism had become deeply intertwined with the Occult, Satanism and Magic, reacted to the Church’s attempt to supplant their festival by increased fervor on this evening. The early medieval Halloween became the supreme feast of the Occult, a night and day witchcraft, demonism, sorcery and Satanism of all kinds. Many practices involved desecration and mockery of Christian practices and beliefs. Costumes of skeletons developed as a mockery of the Church’s reverence for Holy Relics; Holy things were stolen, such as crosses and the Reserved Sacrament, and used perversely in sacrilegious ways. The practice of begging became a system of persecution to harass Christians who were, by their beliefs, unable to participate with offerings to those who served the Lord of Death. The Western Church’s attempt failed, to supplant this pagan festival with the Feast of All Saints.

The ancient Slavic counterpart to Halloween in ancient Russia was Navy Dien’ (Old Slavonic for the dead “nav”), which was also called Radunitsa and celebrated in the spring. To supplant it, the Eastern Church attached this feast to Easter, for celebration on Tuesday of Saint Thomas’ Week (second week after Easter). The Church also changed the name of the feast into Radonitsa, from Russian “radost” – joy, of Easter and of the resurrection from the dead of the whole manhood of Jesus Christ. Gradually Radonitsa yielded to Easter’s greater importance and became less popular. And many dark practices from old Russian pagan feasts (Semik, Kupalo, Rusalia and some aspects of the Maslennitsa) still survived till the beginning of our century. Now they are gone, but the atheist authorities used to try to reanimate them. Another “harmless” feast – May 1, proclaimed “the international worker’s day” is a simple renaming the old satanic feast of Walpurgis Night (night of April 30 into the day of May 1), the yearly demonic Sabbath during which all participants united in “a fellowship of Satan”.

Paganism, idolatry and Satan worship–How then did things so contradictory to the Holy Tewahedo Faith gain acceptance among Christian people? The answers are spiritual apathy and listlessness, which are the spiritual roots of atheism and turning away from God. In society today, one is urged to disregard the spiritual roots and origins of secular practices when the outward practices or forms seem ordinary, entertaining, and harmless. The dogma of atheism underlies many of these practices and forms, denying the existence of both God and Satan. Practices and forms of obvious pagan and idolatrous origin are neither harmless nor of little consequence. The Holy Church stand against them because we are taught by Christ that God stands in judgment over everything we do and believe, and that our actions are either for God or against God. Therefore, the customs of Halloween are not innocent, but are demonic, precisely as their origins prove.

There are evil spirits. Devils do exist. Christ came into the world so that, through death, He might destroy him that had the dominion of death, that is, the Devil (Hebrews 2:14). Christians must see that our greatest foe is the Evil One who inspires nations and individuals to sin, and who keeps them from coming to the truth. Until we know that Satan is our real enemy, we can make little spiritual progress. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the world rulers of the darkness of this age, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12).

Today we witness a revival of satanist cults and special satanic ceremonies on Halloween night. Everywhere Satan reaches out to ensnare more innocent people with spiritualism, supernatural phenomena, seances, prophesies and all sorts of demonically inspired works.

Divine Providence ensured that St. John of Kronstadt, that physician of our souls and bodies, should have his feast day on the very day of Halloween, a day the world dedicated to the destroyer, corrupter, and deceiver of humanity. God has provided us with this powerful counterpoise and weapon against the snares of Satan, and we should take full advantage of this gift, for truly God is wonderful in His Saints
