THE TEARS THAT MAY FLOW ON READING CERTAIN PASSAGES OF SCRIPTURE
There is a gift of the Holy Spirit which manifests itself by tears when certain passages of scripture are read and understood.

THE CHRIST-LIKE COMPASSION OF JOSEPH FOR HIS BROTHERS
Our first knowledge of this occurs in Genesis, Chapters 42-45, relating the story of Joseph – who displays in 1707 BC many Christ-like attributes, especially compassion, righteousness, resolution and fairness – and his brothers.

Jealous of their younger brother Joseph, who had dreamed symbolically that the half-brothers would one day bow down to the earth before him, the half-brothers plotted to kill him, have his ‘prince’s coat of many colours’ made for him by Jacob (because Joseph was a beloved late son of Jacob’s old age), dipped in the blood of a wild beast, and then lie to their father that Joseph had been torn apart by wild animals. On the intervention of Reuben, the eldest, they opted instead to throw Joseph into a pit – from which he was later rescued and taken down to Egypt by a camel train of nomadic Midianites.

In Egypt, following adversity, he correctly interpreted dreams that had troubled Pharaoh, and the King of Egypt accordingly promoted him to the elevated position of Comptroller of the King’s Household – second only in rank to Pharaoh himself.

When famine later devastated the land of Canaan where Jacob and his large extended family now resided, the brothers decided at their father’s request to go down to Egypt to purchase food, and on arrival the sons discovered that they had to deal with the Comptroller of Pharaoh’s Household, whom they did not know was in fact their half-brother Joseph. Understanding all things, Joseph tested the half-brothers (as Christ tests us), asking them to bring his own full brother Benjamin, down to Egypt, ostensibly in order to prove to Joseph that they were not spies.

When the half-brothers realised that they had no choice in the matter… ‘they said one to another, We are verily guilty concerning our brother (Joseph), in that we saw the anguish of his soul, when he besought us, and we would not hear; therefore is this distress come upon us.

And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear?…. And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto them by an interpreter. And he (Joseph) turned himself about from them, and wept…’ (1)

When in desperation because of the famine they returned to Egypt with Benjamin: …‘They bowed down their heads, and made obeisance. And he [Joseph] lifted up his eyes and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother’s son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me?… And Joseph made haste… for he did yearn upon his brother; and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there. And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread’ (2) .

Then Joseph sent his brethren away with the corn and the money they had brought to pay for it, and with a silver cup which was placed inside Benjamin’s sack.

But Joseph then sent messengers to overtake them because the silver cup was ‘missing’; and the servants of Joseph discovered the silver cup in Benjamin’s sack. In despair the brothers rent their clothes, and returned to the city, to face their fate, as they imagined, at the hands of Joseph.

On arrival at Joseph’s residence, Judah calmly explained part of the story: ‘My lord asked his servants (the brethren), saying, have ye a father, or a brother?

And we said unto my lord (Joseph), We have a father, an old man, and a child of his old age, a little one (Benjamin); and his brother (Joseph, as they supposed) is dead, and he alone is left of his mother, and his father loveth him’ (3).

And after Judah had explained everything he could, fearing that they would all now be enslaved…

‘Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren. And he wept aloud; and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard. [And after Joseph had revealed himself to them, and had told them how God had turned their evil for good]… he fell upon his brother Benjamin’s neck, and wept; and Benjamin wept upon his neck. Moreover he kissed all his brethren, and wept upon them; and after that his brethren talked with him’ (4).

AND PETER WENT OUT, AND WEPT BITTERLY
The Passion of our Lord moves many to tears, perhaps beginning with the passage where, after the cock had crowed, as the Lord had told Peter would happen after he had denied the Lord thrice:

‘And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.

And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.

And the men that held Jesus mocked him, and smote him’ (5).

WHEN HE HAD OPENED THE BOOK, HE FOUND THE PLACE WHERE IT WAS WRITTEN…
And there is the passage when the Lord reads one of the 330+ prophecies from the Old Testament concerning Himself in the synagogue at Nazareth:

‘And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias [Isaiah]. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.

To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

And all bare him witness, and wondered at the gracious words
which proceeded out of his mouth’ (6).

JESUS EXPLAINS WHY HE WAS SENT, AS ISAIAH FORETOLD
The place in Isaiah that Jesus found and read in the synagogue in Nazareth,
which began at Chapter 61, verse 1, was written in 698 BC:

‘The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord; and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn’ (7).

• To preach the gospel (Good News) to the poor (meek): that is, all who are poor because they have no knowledge of the Truth.

• He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted: that is, all whose hearts are broken because of despair as they do not have the Hope which comes with the knowledge of the Truth (and all those whose hearts are broken due to their human experiences).

• He hath sent me to preach deliverance to the captives: that is, to those who are captive to the Evil One, bound to Satan – showing them the Way Out and how to make Satan flee from them.

• He hath sent me to preach recovering of sight to the blind: that is, to give sight (enlightenment by the Word of Truth) to those who cannot see that they are being misled and are surely destined to fall headlong with their blind leaders into the ditch (8).

• He hath sent me to set at liberty them that are bruised: that is, to free those who have been bruised by the serpent (the Evil One and his deceivers).

THE MEETING ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS
And after His resurrection, when the Lord joined two disciples on the road to Emmaus:

‘And behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore (60) furlongs.

And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near and went with them (9).

But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

And one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people;

And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this,
today is the third day since these things were done.

Yes, and certain women also of our company made us astonished,
which were early at the sepulchre;

And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

Then said he unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

And beginning at Moses, and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went; and he made
as though he would have gone further.

But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake,
and gave it to them.

And their eyes were opened (10), and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?’ (11).

A BROKEN HEART AND A CONTRITE SPIRIT
Truly, as the Psalmist says:

‘The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all’ (12).

And when we realise that we have wept on reading and understanding the passages of scripture that move us, the following promise is fulfilled:

‘And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you… But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you’ (13).

And this promise is fulfilled as well:

‘And lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world’ (14), (15).

This enticing delusion rests upon a confusion of the Way, the Truth and the Life as proclaimed by Jesus Christ, with the wayward behaviour of elements within corrupted organised religion. The Evil One is having a ball sticking his filthy tongue out at those who have perpetrated blasphemy against the Holy Spirit in this heinous manner. Deplorable though their behaviour is or was, and irreparable though the damage inflicted upon countless lives has been, the faithful are sustained by the parable of the tares [Matthew, Chapter 13, verses 24-30]:

‘Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, the kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field;

But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then has it tares?

He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest, I will say to the reapers,

Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them;
but gather the wheat into my barn’.

Now the truly remarkable but little-known fact within this parable is that the Jacobean word ‘tares’ referred to a weed called darnel – which has the characteristic that when sown among the wheat, it resembles wheat initially, for a time. Only when both the wheat and the tares (the darnel) have matured, does the darnel change its appearance so that it can readily be distinguished from the wheat. Such is the depth of the Word of Christ.

BELATED CHRISTMAS MESSAGE FOR THE NEW YEAR

THE TEMPTATION OF CHRIST AND OUR OWN LIVES

Monday 4 January 2010 00:01

Note: This essay is being posted briefly, but after replacement with the report dated 28th December 2009 or its successor, it will remain immediately accessible via the Archive.

As previously mentioned, the Editor was unable, due to the familiar pressures, to find time to compose a Christmas message in time for the ‘holidays’.

However, by way of ‘compensation’ for that failing, the following thoughts on the Temptation of Christ [Matthew, Chapter 4, verses 1-11] may serve as recompense.

By Christopher Story FRSA

THE CONFIRMATION OF CHRIST AT HIS BAPTISM
‘Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to [the River] Jordan unto John, to be baptised of him’ (1). After John the Baptist had remonstrated with Jesus that it was he, John, who should be baptised by the Lord, rather than the other way round, Jesus asked John to baptise him now: ‘for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness’ (2). So John willingly baptised Jesus in the River Jordan.

Jesus, ‘when he was baptised, went up straightway out of the water: and lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him’.

‘And lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased’ (3).

At that moment, Jesus was ‘made Christ’ – Christos, Greek for ‘the Anointed One’. We hear the voice of God speaking directly – to the three special disciples, Peter, James and John – at the transfiguration immediately ahead of Jesus’ passion, these being the only occasions when the voice of God is heard directly in the New Testament (i.e. the New Will, after the Old Will had been torn up when the veil of the Temple was rent in twain (4) when Jesus expired on the Cross):

‘And after six days, Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain; and he was transfigured before them. And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them’.

‘And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him’ (5). Thus the voice of the Lord is heard at the very beginning (Alpha) and at the very end (Omega) of Jesus’ Ministry on earth – echoed at the end of the final book of the New Testament, Revelation:

‘And he said unto me [the disciple, John], It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst [for my Word, the Way, the Truth and the Life] of the fountain of the water of life freely’ – grace being a free gift of God, with no strings attached, that is often represented in Scripture by the metaphor of free-flowing, pure (spiritual) water (without which physical life cannot exist).

‘He that overcometh [temptation and the entrapment operations of Satan and his demons] shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son’ – echoing the promise repeatedly made to the Children of Israel themselves, which at various stages of their development they rejected, then repented and accepted, and vice versa.

‘But the fearful’ [for if we love Him, we have no fear], ‘and unbelieving’ [‘the fool hath said in his heart, there is no God’ (6) ], ‘and the abominable’ [the degraded human beings, who are possessed by familiars and devils, that invade other countries illegally, murder millions, rendering many more millions homeless, and the compartMENTALised operatives who plot with brainwashed agents to blow up buildings and aircraft], ‘and murderers’ [recall that ‘he (the devil ) was a murderer from the beginning’ (7)] ‘and whoremongers’ [teaching little children depravity, thereby blaspheming against the Holy Spirit *], ‘and idolaters’ [all who covet material things or who worship Mammon, or who lust after worldly rewards, as well as those who worship idols, false invented gods and illusory mental fabrications which are the sterile, mundane inventions of Satan himself], ‘and all liars’ [who have not repented], ‘shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone’ (8).

Now, just as soon as the Holy Spirit had descended upon him when he emerged from the River Jordan having been baptised by John – to emphasise the need for cleansing from sin, even though he himself was without sin – ‘then was Jesus led up by the spirit unto the wilderness to be tempted of the devil’ (9).

AFTER WE HAVE RECEIVED GRACE, WE ARE IMMEDIATELY TEMPTED
This sequence encapsulates a factor of exceptional importance that is probably seldom pointed out by many who consider themselves to be entrusted with the responsibility of teaching the Word.

It is this: just as soon as we have been touched by God’s grace – chosen by God, because we humbled ourselves before Him – Satan says:

‘We can’t have this. I must work overtime to get him or her back’.

This may well happen very rapidly after a person has been touched by grace. So those who have ears to hear and eyes to see should be aware that one or more ‘attacks’ by the Evil One may quickly follow the gift of grace, which is freely given to us by the Lord if we seek him.

Since the person touched by grace has also had his or her eyes opened, he or she will be aware of the attacks when they happen. They may take any form, especially sexual, but quite probably other temptations as well. And this little essay is about temptation, so before we look at the Temptation of Christ, read these comforting words on the subject:

‘There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation ALSO MAKE A WAY TO ESCAPE, that ye may be able to bear it’ (10).

And: ‘For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted [see in detail below], he is able to succor them that are tempted’ (11).

‘Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man [not SOME men (and women): but EVERY person] is tempted when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed’ (12).

THE THREE TEMPTATIONS OF CHRIST
Now in the wilderness – metaphor for what some call ‘the dark night of the soul’ but which can also be construed as representing the sterile vacuity of existence without God – after Jesus had fasted for forty days and nights (echoing, as happens throughout Scripture, in perfect symmetry, the 40 years that the Children of Israel wandered aimlessly in the wilderness after they had defied the Lord) – the tempter (Satan) visited him and tried to entice him by means of three deceptions:

• The First Temptation and Deception:

‘And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread’ (13).

Which, being interpreted, means that Satan tried to entice Jesus into dabbling with the occult – which is strictly forbidden, as summarised in the brief Annexe below. Here we have, at the very outset of the Temptation, a warning against playing around with the occult – astrology, palmistry, divination, sorcery, séances to call up demons, all false religion such as the New Age substitutes developed by Satan to entrap the unwary who have no knowledge of Scripture, all subversive enticements promising ‘higher knowledge’ by initiation (Freemasonry and its many offshoots and imitations, and all secret societies), and the myriad devices that the devil has refined, and has proliferated in our time, to entrap those who drift with the wind and who have built their houses on sand. Importance should also be attached to the fact that the temptation to dabble in the occult comes FIRST – indicating that it is the route to perdition most favoured by Satan and his demons.

Christ deflected this attack by slapping Satan down with:

‘[But he answered and said], It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’ (14).

Herein resides another jewel that had eluded this writer until this very moment (as so often happens when one studies the Word!): For notice that Jesus did not fall into Satan’s trap by, for instance, pooh-poohing the idea of converting stones into bread by magic. No, Jesus didn’t even give Satan the opportunity to follow up with some further occultic allusion.

On the contrary, he simply took the word ‘bread’ (the ‘bread of life’) as his cue and reminded Satan that men and women are both body and soul, in need at all times of spiritual nourishment: ‘every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’.

Thus the Lord squashed Satan’s occultic attack by ignoring it and telling him what needed to be said, with no reference to the occult at all: the best form of refutation can be to ignore the stupidity of the attacker. And Jesus was, as the prophet foretold, ‘of quick discernment’ (intellect).

• The second Temptation and Deception:

‘Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city [Jerusalem], and setteth him on a pinnacle of the Temple’ (Herod’s Temple, built for the glory of Herod, not God),

‘And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee: and in their hands, they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone’ (15).

Here, the devil is enticing the Lord to commit suicide, pure and simple.

Now those who suffer from, or know people or relatives who suffer from, bipolar disorder, may have experienced the terrible agony of a friend or relative who has committed suicide. Without stepping into medical territory for which this writer is not qualified, there is a possibility that such victims may have been under attack from a ‘familiar’ literally whispering in their head that, given a set of circumstances painted by the demon(s) in their mind as being hopeless and irretrievable, they would be ‘better off ending it all’.

Of course, when this happens, the devil ‘gains’, because he has prevented yet another soul from finding the grace of God, and thus becoming a candidate for salvation.

In this connection, it should be borne in mind that Satan does not want us to worship him (as some fools believe). All he wants is for the person NOT to worship the Lord. For those who do not yet see with their eyes and hear with their ears, this is all a mystery. But it’s as clear as the living waters of life to those touched by the grace of God.

In response to this attack, the Lord dismisses it by rebuking Satan for trying to tempt him into committing suicide:

‘Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God’ (16) – REMINDING SATAN THAT HE IS THE LORD. And we know from James, the brother of Jesus, that Satan and his demons are NOT atheists. They believe in and know ABOUT God, and they tremble at the thought and knowledge of him:

‘Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble’ (17).

THE DEVILS ARE TERRIFIED OF THE LORD
And herein lies one of the most stupendous truths of all.

The devils also believe, and they tremble at the knowledge and truth of God. Why do they tremble?

Because they know that, contrary to the commandments of God which focus on love that banishes all fear, they are all liars, deceivers, murderers, bearers of false witness, thieves, perpetrators of Fraudulent Finance, designers of abominations [see above], self-important and deluded social sorcerers who think that they can reorganise the whole world to suit themselves and their craven interests, peddlers of depravity, brainwashers, avid haters of the innocence of little children and abusers of them, blasphemers against the Holy Spirit, abusers of themselves and others, and schemers intent upon following other Workers of Darkness, taking pleasure in wickedness:

‘For without [outside, in the Darkness] are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whomsoever loveth and maketh a lie’ (18).

THE ONLY NAME TO WHICH EVIL SPIRIT WILL RESPOND IS THAT OF JESUS CHRIST
Furthermore, we are confronted now with yet another quite astonishing truth – the single truth that embedded itself so indelibly on the mind of this writer that he knew, through this truth alone, that Jesus Christ is indeed, of a truth, the Way, the Truth and the Life, and that there is (as the Children of Israel were painfully taught during their long ‘upbringing’ for their own, and our, benefit), ‘none other God but me’. It is this:

The ONLY Name to which Evil One pays attention, and will OBEY, is that of Jesus Christ.

Therefore, in Christian exorcism (which must only be undertaken by Christians fully equipped by prayer and often by fasting, as Jesus also taught was necessary in the case of certain kinds of demon) (19), demons are cast out in the Name of Jesus Christ.

• The third Temptation and Deception:

‘Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceedingly high mountain, and sheweth him ALL the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;’

‘And saith unto him, ALL these things will I give thee if thou wilt fall down and worship me’ [capitalisation by the Editor, for emphasis] (20).

ALL GOVERNMENTS ARE IN THE HANDS OF SATAN
Satan did not say: ‘I will give you SOME of these kingdoms, in exchange for you falling down and worshipping me’. He said: ‘ALL these things will I give thee…’. In other words, ALL KINGDOMS AND GOVERNMENTS are in the hands of Satan and are controlled by him. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.

Is this insight as depressing as it sounds? This column has long been chronicling the Works of Darkness perpetrated on a permissive scale by the American and other Governments, including the British Government – in conformity with the crystal clear insight given to us in this Scripture that ALL Governments are in the hands of the Evil One. Why should we not be despondent to the point of suicidal depression in the face of this reality?

Because of what the Lord retorted in the face of this third Temptation:

‘Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan; for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve’ (21).

‘GET OUT OF MY LIFE, SERPENT’: AND HE FLEES…
First, if we order Satan out of our lives, he vanishes. ‘Get thee behind me Satan’ WORKS. Telling the devil to clear off WORKS. And if it works in our lives, it can work within Government, too.

The fact that ALL Governments are in the hands of the Evil One does not mean that good cannot be done through governance. On the contrary, since governments are simply structures organised by humanity consisting solely of men and women, each of whom has the opportunity and promise of salvation if they have eyes to see and ears to hear, governments CAN be prevailed upon to depart from consorting with the Workers of Darkness and from following the broad way to perdition:

‘Enter ye at the straight [i.e., the narrow] gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat’ (22) .

Sooner or later in life, we have to make a choice. Fortunate indeed are those people who have the opportunity to make the choice early in their lives. But whenever we make the choice – even right at the end of life – we have to make it, as there is no second chance.

The Roman Catholic Church’s invention of ‘purgatory’, a sort of half-way house between salvation and perdition, is a devilish, self-serving, money-making fabrication which enables that reprobate church to charge rent (fees) for ‘dispensing’ the privilege of ‘days off purgatory’ – which does not exist, there being of course no mention of it in Scripture whatsoever.

On the contrary, we have ONE chance of salvation, and it occurs in this life only. Either we take it, or we suffer the consequences.

If this applies to individual human beings, it also applies to governments, which consist exclusively of individual human beings. The fact that ALL kingdoms are in the hands of Satan does not mean that they cannot be wrenched from his claws, just like individuals.

ALL OF A SUDDEN, THERE IS NO TEMPTATION ANY MORE
After the third Temptation:

‘Then the devil leaveth him, and behold, angels came and ministered unto him’ (23).

And this happens to us, individually, too. When we have ordered Satan to ‘get behind me’, resisting his temptations, ‘angels come and minister to us’. Then, one day, we wake up and realise, to our astonishment, that the thing that has tempted us, perhaps for a long time, isn’t there any more.

Try it.

Now the veil of the temple was extremely thick – not like a simple curtain or piece of cloth which could be pulled apart by the tensions triggered by an earthquake. The great thickness of the veil is unknown, but it had been added to over a prolonged period such that it could not possibly have been torn from top to bottom in an instant other than by a supernatural force – a fact attested by these passages and by the witnesses reported in the gospel accounts. The significance of the tearing of the veil of the temple FROM TOP TO BOTTOM is that it unmistakably represents the tearing-up by God of the Old Testament or Will, and its replacement by a New Will.

For a Will to take effect, the testator must have died: and that is what happened. The Editor knows a person who was brought to Christ when this was pointed out.

(6): ‘The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God’, Psalm 14, verse 1; Psalm 53, verse 1.

(7): ‘Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of it’. [John, Chapter 8, verse 44]. Note the close correlation between murdering and lying: when we lie, we murder the truth. And murders are often committed in order to disguise the truth. The Editor is extremely disturbed about the sudden death of a US journalist who was known to him, who died aged 41 on 19th September 2009. We think he was murdered because he was researching some devilish activity of the US official structures that they wanted to prevent being exposed. The Scribes and Pharisees enticed the crowd to call for Jesus’ crucifixion (giving themselves supposed ‘deniability’ because, as they stupidly assumed, they could claim afterwards that ‘the masses’ had called for his death), so as to murder the truth for which Christ stood and with which he was associated – in order, in turn, to preserve their worldly power structure which Jesus challenged head on: as, for instance, in the foregoing excoriation.

A NOTE ON BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST:
The Lord teaches us explicitly that no forgiveness is possible for blasphemy against the Holy Spirit:

‘Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men… whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come’ [Matthew, Chapter 12, verses 31-32].

Mark, Chapter 3, verses 28-29: ‘Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation’.

At Luke, Chapter 12, verse 10 also, we read:
‘And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven’.

Now the temple of the Holy Spirit is the human person, not temples made with hands: ‘For behold, the kingdom of God is within you’ [Matthew, Chapter 17, verse 21]. Therefore, the innocent little child is, by definition, the perfect temple of the Holy Spirit.

So what are the Workers of Darkness therefore often DRIVEN to do? Why, to pervert, corrupt, abuse, brainwash and disturb little children. Why do we read so much about paedophilia nowadays, which was never previously the case? And why are certain notorious, complicit and well-known Western ‘leaders’, past and present, paedophiles?

Because those chosen by the Workers of Darkness to ‘lead’ us are pre-blackmailed or permanently blackmailable and are therefore controlled inter alia because they have indulged in the abuse of children, i.e. blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, for which there is no forgiveness.

In Mark, we have read that such a person is ‘in danger of eternal damnation’, leaving a small chink of possible light in the darkness, implying that comprehensive, genuine repentance might afford them ‘a way out’. But since the other two gospel references slam the door very tightly shut, the overwhelming probability is that abusers of children – and this means ALL THOSE WHO PERVERT THE MINDS OF MINORS as well as those who brutally abuse them physically – are blasphemers against the Holy Spirit, FOR WHOM NO FORGIVENESS IS POSSIBLE.

That, in turn, means that such ‘leaders’ and others like them are trapped. They cannot get out of the darkness. Have you ever wondered why Gordon Brown is so permanently gloomy? Such people are not only entrapped and blackmailed or blackmailable, but are therefore ‘ideal’ instruments for the Workers of Darkness (Satan) to play with. THIS is why so many of these characters are paedophiles. They are lost, ‘so they have nothing to lose’ by going along with the abominations of others.

Jesus used almost violent language to condemn these abusers of children:

‘And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me’.

‘But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea’. [Matthew, Chapter 18, verses 5-6].

‘And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea’ [Mark, Chapter 9, verse 42].

‘It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones’. [Luke, Chapter 17, verse 2].

And wherever the Word appears three times in the gospels, it is of special importance.

A NOTE ON DEMONS
We learn from Scripture what most of us instinctively know, whether we choose to bury this deep knowledge or not, that there are evil spirits, unclean spirits, seducing spirits, ‘fallen angels’, ‘the devil’s angels’, and that they are organised into hierarchies as ‘principalities’, ‘powers’, ‘rulers of darkness’, ‘spiritual hosts of wickedness’, and ‘familiar spirits’ against which human beings must struggle – although they can be dismissed, as indicated in the main text, by ordering Satan to ‘get out’: ‘Get thee behind me Satan’ is an excellent and permitted imprecation.

A close relative of the Editor, visited by an extremely cacophonous Evil Spirit (host of evil spirits), in desperation, prayed: ‘Our Father’ and needed to to go no further before the troubling infestation fled – and never returned.

Helpful New Testament references to evil spirits will be found at Matthew, Chapter 12, verses 43 and 45; Matthew, Chapter 25, verse 41; Second Epistle of Peter, Chapter 2, verse 4; and the Epistle of Paul to the Ephesians, Chapter 6, verse 12. Halley writes in his ‘Bible Handbook’ [Halley’s Bible Handbook, ISBN 0-310-25720-4, Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 32-8057, Halley’s Bible Handbook, Inc., pages 468-469]:

‘The rather plain implication of Scripture is that “demoniacs” were not merely lunatics, but cases of “invaded personality”; and that demons, whatever their origin or nature, were evil spirits that did actually enter and afflict, in one way or another, certain persons’.

‘It is thought to have been a special exhibition of the devil against Jesus, permitted by God, during Jesus’ stay on earth, to demonstrate that Jesus’ power extended even into the unseen realm. Faith in Him is protection from whatever evil they might be able to do’….

‘Paul says [that] the Christian’s struggle is against evil personalities of the unseen world [Ephesians, Chapter 6, verse 12]. But Jesus is our strength in the struggle. Satan and his evil spirits are helpless against the Name and Power of Jesus’ Christ’.

This is so not least because they have to work within the parameters of their existence delineated by God. That explains why they never innovate. You may wonder how it is possible that a devilish CIA buffoon like Cheney, whom the Editor thinks is ‘perfectly possessed’, continues to perpetrate and preside over attempted abominations. First, because he is possessed. And secondly, because he knows no new tricks. Satan can never innovate. This makes it relatively easy for us, after some experience, to recognise what these criminals have in mind.

We can read their minds: because they keep doing the same stuff over and over again. It is no coincidence that the satanic disruption that is disturbing the peace of humanity is called the World Revolution. ‘Revolution’ means going round and round in sterile circles.

And going nowhere.

ANNEXE
PROHIBITION AGAINST SORCERY, DIVINATION AND THE OCCULT
Dabbling in the occult is absolutely forbidden, as it opens the person up to infestation by demons or ‘familiars’. All ‘pathways’ to the occult are to be avoided, including such devices as yoga, which procure the creation of a ‘tabula rasa’ mind – into which evil spirits can the more easily and swiftly be enticed. Of course this will be denied by some, but their denials will fly in the face of the truth.

Warnings against dabbling in the occult are numerous in Scripture, which deals with the works and words of real men and women, not disembodied ‘presences’.

Three worth noting here are as follows:

• Deuteronomy, Chapter 18, verses 9-13:
‘When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee’ – viz., out of the Darkness of ‘Egypt’, where the ancients worshipped death (their religion was a death cult) into the ‘Land flowing with milk and honey’ (metaphor for the Light of God, given that the whole of humanity had hitherto languished in darkness, as is repeatedly stated early in Genesis) – ‘thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations’.

‘There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or daughter to pass through the fire [i.e., post-natal ‘contraception’ disguised as offerings to false gods], or that useth divination [fortune telling, astrology, trying to gauge the future by esoteric means], or an observer of times [ditto], or an enchanter, or a witch,’

‘Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits [someone infested by familiar spirits who speaks with them, and follows instructions], or a wizard [magician], or a necromancer [death worshipper]’.

‘For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee’ [i.e., they always go into perdition].

‘Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God’.

• Jeremiah, Chapter 27, verse 9:
‘Therefore harken not ye to… your diviners, nor to your dreamers,
nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers…’.

• Malachi, Chapter 3, verse 5:
‘I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers’.

NEW REPORT STARTS HERE:

THE SERPENT’S HEAD HASN’T BEEN SEVERED YET
Unfortunately, it appears from the latest special information made available to us since we last reported, and assembled by the Editor of this service during his New York visit and after returning to London on 20th December, that a recalcitrant spirit of unmitigated evil stalks the world because the head of the CIA-DVD serpent has not yet been severed from its repulsive and slithering body.

Moreover our sources imply that the President of the United States is being openly defied by his appointed colleagues, especially by Mr Leon Panetta, the Director of Central Intelligence, who is malevolently, with great arrogance, continuing to take his instructions from the decaying serpent, a.k.a. Adolf Schickelbusch Sr. and his conniving wife Barbara Bush, reported to be the illegitimate daughter of the notorious late ‘Black’ British operative, Aleisteir Crowley. There was a report that this evil couple had been ordered to ‘pack light’ as they would be ‘going away’, but our follow-up enquiries have led nowhere, so we are assuming that this was yet another diversionary lie.

LEON PANETTA AT THE CENTRE OF THE OBSTRUCTION
Panetta is therefore, on behalf of the unhappy, corrupt US Intelligence Power which thinks it holds the whole world in its grip, destructively and purposefully insulting humanity, in order to preserve the CIA’s status as the unruly ‘State within the State’, its usurped hegemony, and its irresponsible capacity to hypothecate fiat money to infinity.

It has been doing this ever since it collaborated with the US military to denude Japanese Emperor Hirohito’s Imperial Palace vaults and the Philippine gold hiding places constructed by slave labour (which was buried alive in the secret holes) for the Japanese Imperial Princes.

This was a process begun at once by the corrupt US General Douglas Macarthur, who even operated a joint bank account with Hirohito. The CIA’s arrogant, serpentine power is derived originally from its custody of the gold and wealth that the Japanese had stolen from 12 Asian countries on an industrial scale during the years of their empire (1895-1945).

COLLAPSE OF THE CLIMATE CHANGE DECEPTION COVER
Now if we are correctly informed and read the latest implications aright, the consequences of this state of affairs, which will be explained in the next report (1), will be beyond catastrophic, as these malevolent forces, having failed to consolidate the intended globally sanctified, deceptive Climate Change cover for their next round of Fraudulent Finance, are nevertheless still criminally intent on developing a substitute fiat money derivatives trading system – having (as we detect) enticed the younger Chinese elements, who are impatient to make giga-fake money now, and to hell with the consequences, in defiance of the will of the Chinese Elders, who operate in accordance with a 100-year view and know that what is intended will lead to a catastrophe – not just for the United States but for the whole world.

And very rapidly, too.

The wiseheads among them know that this is a cynical, planned Nazi-Fascist operation, designed to precipitate a global collapse – after which the serpent and its disciples hope to be able to release the illegitimate fiat money conjured out of thin air that they have been manufacturing through their immense past hypothecation operations.

• The stashed fiat money can’t be mobilised until the whole system has crashed, see.

INCENTIVE TO ENGINEER A TOTAL SYSTEM COLLAPSE
Therefore the serpent and its associates think they have an incentive to engineer the collapse of the system – with the US Treasury already in or about to be in manifest DEFAULT, US Government Departments closed down from 21st December, and indications of undercover Fraudulent Finance trading going on as though there had been no discontinuity.

• Specifically, $50 million CDs are being traded under the radar based on derivatives based in turn on Collateralised Debt Obligations (CDOs) that are based on nothing because it is impossible to tell to whom such a fake ‘asset’ belongs.

So what is being traded under the radar, and was intended to be escalated behind the Copenhagen deception, mandated by the whole world, is a menu of wholly spurious, false assets – a fact known to the participants and criminal financial enterprises concerned.

Unsurprisingly, we are being told from all responsible sides in the United States that the CEOs of these criminal enterprises and their co-conspirators holding high office and who have held high office should be taken out and given the modern equivalent of the lamp post treatment, at dawn.

IN ADDITION TO DEATH, THEIR MAIN PRODUCT IS DELAY
The main product of these people, apart from spiritual and physical death, is DELAY.

• If they can achieve DELAY, they figure they have won, until the next hurdle appears.

These people are operating in a living hell of their own creation, and they know NOTHING but Fraudulent Finance; and no doubt they assume that their obtuse, ongoing recalcitrance will wear the opposition (such as ourselves) down by exhaustion.

If that is an element of their calculations, we and others have news for them: not only do Psy-Ops not work on us, but we understand that the horizontalisation programme, which we don’t want to talk about on Christmas Day, has been and will be elevated to a new level of viciousness.

SPLIT AT HIGHEST LEVEL OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT
There is also a bitter renewed split within the highest level of the British Government which appears, like everything else, to be directly connected to this crisis. Copenhagen collapsed because of it, a satisfactory development. The Editor will expand on these dimensions.

HANDEL’S MESSIAH AT THE CENTRAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
On a more positive note, the Editor attended, on 19th December 2009, a magnificent Messiah at the Central Presbyterian Church at 64th Street and Park New York City, in the snow. The avenues were packed with glistening whiteness and the only cab, which stopped for the Editor, crawled at about ten miles an hour to the church. The Editor thought he would be alone, but the church was packed.

This was a performance of exceptional quality, such as one is liable to encounter only in this great city. The Editor has no hesitation in saying that this was by far the most inspiring and exquisitely executed performance of Handel’s masterpiece that he has experienced in his entire life, even at Eton and Christ Church, which are renowned for the quality of their music.

Seated in the cab which miraculously appeared outside the church when he exited, the Editor understood anew the words of the Lord Jesus, who told his friends:

‘All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth (2) … and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world’ (3) . ‘In my name… they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them’ (4), (5).

And it is true that if we truly believe on the Name of the Lord, and place our faith totally in him, trying to walk in His ways, we ARE protected.

• A certainty that the Workers of Darkness cannot understand:

‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made (6).

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

And the light shineth in darkness: AND THE DARKNESS COMPREHENDED IT NOT’ (7).

See above.

Notes and References:

(1) The Editor returned from New York amid the snowstorm on Sunday 20th December and has had no time to prepare the next report. However we have assembled intelligence for the report, which will be prepared as soon as possible, bearing in mind the necessity to cuddle our grandchildren who are staying with us, which is more important!

The forthcoming report will contain information hardly suitable for Christmas. Even this ‘trailer’ has displaced the time that the Editor had intended to use in order to prepare another Scripture-based Christmas message. See our report dated 26th December 2008 in the interim: if time permits a new one will appear, but this is not a promise. It’s an aspiration at this point.

(5): Several years ago, the Editor was summoned, for a second time, to the Washington, DC, office of Mr Bill Hamilton (NSA), of PROMIS ‘fame’. The meeting was supposed to take place in his office boardroom, but after a minute a man in jeans entered the room and asked Hamilton if he could work at a computer that was positioned alone in a corner. This was clearly pre-arranged. Hamilton then closed the meeting and ushered the Editor into an adjacent office suite, saying: leave your jacket and briefcase here. First mistake. The Editor was then left alone in the empty adjacent office suite for ten minutes. It was full of archive boxes, nothing else.

Ten minutes later, the receptionist who had been very pleasant on the Editor’s first visit, but was surly and quite rude on the second occasion, brought a tray, an opened bottle of Coke and a glass. Second mistake: The Editor drank the Coke.

After a completely pointless discussion lasting a few minutes, Hamilton ended the session. Hours later, a chip was found on the inside right lapel of the Editor’s jacket, and it was burned in a candle at a table in a diner. The Editor survived the Coke with no symptoms at all.

NON-U.S. INTERNET SECURITY SOLUTION CD AVAILABLE: FAR BETTER THAN NORTON ETC
It has now been established that the National Security Agency (NSA) works with/controls Microsoft, Norton, McAfee, and others, in pursuit of the Pentagon’s vast BIG BROTHER objective, directed from the ‘highest’ levels (not the levels usually referred to) which seek to have every computer in the world talk direct to the Pentagon or to NSA’s master computers.

This should come as no real surprise since the cynical spooks even assert this ‘in-your-face’ by advertising ‘INTEL INSIDE’, which says exactly what it means. More specifically, NSA have made great strides in this direction by having a back door built into Microsoft VISTA. Certain computers, especially those labelled with the logo of the ‘fully collaborating’ firm Hewlett Packard, have hard-core setups which facilitate the remote monitoring and controlling of personal computers by NSA, Fort Meade. We now understand that if you are using VISTA* you MUST NOT enable ‘file and printer sharing’ under any circumstances. If you say ‘YES’, so to speak, to ‘file and printer sharing’, your computer becomes a slave at once to NSA’s master computers. DO NOT ENABLE SHARING.

Unfortunately, this abomination is so far advanced that this may not be the only precaution that needs to be taken. As long as Microsoft continues its extensive cooperation with NSA and the NSC (National Security Council), the spying system which assists the criminalised structures, and thus hitherto the Bush-Clinton ‘Box Gang’ and its connections, with their fraudulent finance operations, NSA may be able to steal data from your computer. The colossal scourge of data theft is associated with this state of affairs: data stolen usually include Credit Card data, which the kleptocracy regards as almost as good as real estate for hypothecation purposes. Even so, you can make life very much more problematical for these utterly odious people by NOT USING U.S.-sourced so-called Internet Security and anti-virus software. Having been attacked and abused so often, we offer a solution.

We use a proprietary FOREIGN Internet Security program which devours every PC Trojan, worm, scam, porn attack and virus that the National Security Agency (NSA) throws at us. We are offering this program (CD) to our clients and friends, at a premium. The program comes with our very strong recommendation, but at the same time, if you buy from us, you will be helping us finance ongoing exposures of the DVD’s World Revolution and the financial corruption that has been financing it.

The familiar US proprietary Internet Security programs are by-products of US counterintelligence, and are intended NOT to solve your Internet security problems, but to spy on you and to report what you write about, to centralised US electronic facilities set up for the purpose. You can now BREAK FREE from this syndrome while at the same time helping us to MAINTAIN THE VERY HEAVY PRESSURE UPON THE CRIMINALISTS WE HAVE BEEN EXPOSING, by ordering this highest quality FOREIGN (i.e., non-US) INTERNET SECURITY SOLUTION that we have started advertising on this website. This offer has been developed in response to attacks we have suffered from the NSA nerds who appear to have a collective mental age of about five years, judging by their output.

• To access details about the INTERNET SECURITY SOLUTION, just press THE LIVE LINK YOU HAVE JUST READ, or else press SERIALS in the red panel below. This opens up our mini-catalogue of printed intelligence publications. Scroll right down to the foot of that section, where you will see details of this service. When you buy this special product, you will also, as we clearly state above, be paying a special premium by way of a donation to help us finance these exposures.

The premium contains a donation for our exposure work and also covers our recommendation based on the Editor’s own experience that this INTERNET SECURITY SOLUTION will make your Internet life much easier. The program has an invaluable ‘Preview before downloading’ feature.

• It is suitable for PC’s but not Mac computers. As with all such programs, the License is renewable at a modest fee annually. This is done on-line in the usual way [with the supplier direct].
