Nothing New Under the Sun (From Zoroastrianism to End Times Deception)

Nothing New Under the Sun (From Zoroastrianism to End Times Deception)

World events have ramped up to where many now recognize the existence of not only chemtrails, but some sort of an evil plan to bring about global governance. The question now is no longer so much WHETHER something is happening but WHAT is happening, WHAT VERSION of what is happening we are to believe – how do we know that the “truth” we’ve uncovered is THE TRUTH?  The answers have been right there in our Bibles all along:

1 John 2:27
1 John 4:1
1 Sam 16:7
1 Thess 5:21
1 Tim 4:1
Col 2:8
Heb 4:12
Hosea 14:9
James 1:5

The battle is spiritual, the spiritual is behind everything we’re seeing in the natural and we respond in the Spirit:

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
Ephesians 6:10–12

And never forget our hope:

Luke 21:28

We need spiritual discernment and we need UNDERSTANDING that we’ve been deprived of in the organized church and God is providing answers for those who are diligently seeking them.

I often refer to an “End Times Script” that’s depicted by dispensationalism/millennialism (the belief in a 7 year tribulation involving a rapture of believers and a following 1000 year literal reign on earth of Christ). Most of us know that in the 1500’s Catholic Monk Francisco Ribera introduced a dispensational timeline, but does it go even further back than that? In fact a dispensational timeline and coming millennial reign have been presented in occult literature since the earliest history, beginning with Zoroastrianism in ancient Babylon.

As promoted in the film Zeitgeist (follow link for Chris White’s debumking of the film), Zoroastrianism has influenced all the world’s RELIGIONS. But of course, biblical Christianity is not a religion, it is a personal relationship with God made possible by the finished work of Jesus Christ. Still, much of this false/occult/mystery school religion has infiltrated what is being taught by the organized church today.

Allison Page Walters recently wrote:

“Alexander the Great, Greece, Babylon, Egypt & the flow of the Mystery Schools teachings & knowledge from the fall of Atlantis at the Flood to present day has been a catalyst for Dominion & Spiritual Warfare.

I imagine y’all probably get tired of me yelling look at the Spiritual, always the Spiritual, lol, but guys we WALK in a SPIRITUAL Kingdom & our FIGHT is against the SPIRITUAL forces of Darkness, the Powers & Principalities, & our PRIMARY understanding of the Scriptures from Matthew forward NEEDS to be Spiritual FIRST, then look for the echoes in the Physical.

The Old Testament was the TEMPLATE, it laid out the Plan in a Physical way, the way we can follow with our minds & eyes to begin to learn HOW to see & understand the Spiritual dimension & repercussions. Adam & Eve FELL into the Flesh, into the PHYSICAL dimension under the Dominion of our Enemy.

The 1st half of Scripture deals with our FLESH condition, how we GOT there & the repercussions of not just the Fall but the Genesis 6 Incursion of the Fallen & THEN the scattering of the languages & Nations at the Tower of Babel & the Nations being given OVER to the Powers & Principalities to be ruled. Being handed over to the lesser Elohim, what we think of as the old gods.

From Genesis 3 forward we are PROMISED that He has a Plan already in PLACE & we 1st hear about the Seed of the Woman.

Then in Exodus, we see His foreshadowing in the sacrifice of the Passover Lambs in Egypt, & again when Moses is given the Law in Mt Sinai, you can follow the Physical foreshadowings all the way through Micah.

The New Testament flips it BACK to a focus on the SPIRITUAL with the coming of Christ in the FLESH in order to sacrifice Himself for our Atoning Sacrifice, washing us clean & allowing us to be REBORN from Dead Flesh into LIFE in the Spirit, in a Kingdom not yet of this World, yet already begun & growing. From here forward we SHOULD HAVE BEEN TAUGHT to look at the heart of things, to THINK, SEE & Walk PRIMARILY in the Spirit from the moment of our rebirth in HIM, our lives in the Physical becoming a clear & present reflection of that growing relationship with Him & understanding of the TRUTH of this World & who & what is really at work in it, but instead we end up with blinders made of false doctrines, misinterpretations, intentional & unintentional misdirection by those we thought were here to lead us & help us grow in Christ.

The LIE of the Physical Church as a BUILDING was just a way to gain control & infiltrate the Body, generation by generation steering it further away from the Truth & BACK into the bondage & BLINDNESS of the World.

Corinthians 15:20-28 & 42-58

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

The FALSE doctrines have a beginning guys, & have gods/lesser Elohim who are the Principalities over the Nations where the original versions of these doctrines of Demons BEGAN. We’ve been fighting something we didn’t fully understand & have been TAUGHT to think of as Physical armies & Physical Nations but THAT’S only HALF the battle!!!!

The Armies of the North & South, the Rephaim are moving forward in the Spiritual and the Blue & Red, hot & cold, Fire & Water elements are being invoked to put something into play…..the broken Pentagram laid out across the World, the Occultists KNOW this!

The gathering, the drawing out of Gog occurs in the SPIRITUAL realm 1st, these guys fight EACH OTHER as much as they fight against US, the ONLY thing that induces them to work together is the Coming of our KING. They are still squabbling, still attacking US & each other from different directions, STILL fighting jealously over their OWN portions, the areas of Dominion previously given over to them, but Scripture tells is in these days those lines are shifting once more, stirring them up & readying them for a final battle.

How do you FIGHT a Spiritual war & what is it fought OVER?? WORSHIP! It’s a war, a struggle for Dominion through WORSHIP. Where WE Walk WE carry the Dominion & Kingdom of God, but where other worshipers walk, gather, live, they carry the Dominion of the False gods they WORSHIP.

Would it surprise you if i told you the Principality over Media Persia/Iran, Iraq(Babylon) at the time of Xerxes, just before the Media Persian Empire fell & the Greek Empire under Alexander the Great rose to Power was worshiped through what we know now as Zoroastrianism? This would be the King of the Armies of the South. How about if i told you the teachings of a 1000 year Reign on Earth & 2 separate resurrections, otherwise known/TAUGHT as a Pretrib rapture are straight out of Zoroastrianism? Would you begin to understand why & HOW this particular False doctrine has become the mainstay of the Western church teaching, does it suddenly make sense WHY people are so utterly deceived by it & hold so DESPERATELY to it? This is just one example.”


This comes from Wikipedia. It’s lengthy but I thought it was an interesting read. There’s truly nothing new under the sun:

Millennialism (from millennium, Latin for “a thousand years”), or chiliasm (from the Greek equivalent), is a belief advanced by some religious denominations that a Golden Age or Paradise will occur on Earth prior to the final judgment and future eternal state of the “World to Come”.

Christianity and Judaism have both produced messianic movements from time to time which featured millennialist teachings – such as the notion that an earthly kingdom of God was at hand.[1] These millenarian movements often led to considerable social unrest.

Zoroastrianism, which identified successive thousand-year periods, each of which will end in a cataclysm of heresy and destruction, until the final destruction of evil and of the spirit of evil by a triumphant king of peace at the end of the final millennial age.

“In Zoroastrianism, the Saoshyant makes the creatures again pure, and the resurrection and future existence occur” (Zand-i Vohuman Yasht 3:62).

Scholars have also linked various other social and political movements, both religious and secular, to millennialist metaphors. These include

Judaism

Millennialist thinking first emerged in Jewish literature of the tumultuous intertestamental period (200 BCE to 100 CE), including writings such as the

Enoch,

Jubilees,

Esdras,

and the additions to Daniel.

Passages within these texts, including

1 Enoch 6-36, 91-104,

and

Jubilees 23:27,

refer to the establishment of a “millennial kingdom” by a messianic figure, occasionally suggesting that the duration of this kingdom would be a thousand years. However, the actual number of years given for the duration of the kingdom varied. In 4 Ezra 7:28-9, for example, it is said that the kingdom will last only 400 years.

Millennialism, which had already existed in Jewish thought, received a new interpretation and fresh impetus with the arrival of Christianity.

Christianity

Christian millennialism developed out of a Christian interpretation of Jewish apocalypticism (see above).

Christian millennialist thinking is primarily based upon the book of Revelation, specifically 20:1-6,[citation needed] which describes the vision of an angel who descended from heaven with a large chain and a key to a bottomless pit, and captured Satan, imprisoning him for a thousand years:

He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years and threw him into the pit and locked and sealed it over him, so that he would deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be let out for a little while.

— Rev. 20:2-3

The Book of Revelation then describes a series of judges who are seated on thrones, as well as his vision of the souls of those who were beheaded for their testimony in favor of Jesus and their rejection of the mark of the beast. These souls:came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. Over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him a thousand years

— Rev. 20:4-6

Thus, [in this Dispensational interpretation of the book of Revelation], John of Patmos is said to characterize a millennium where Christ and the Father will rule over a theocracy of the righteous.

As I covered in my first video, this literal belief in a thousand-year reign of Christ is a later development in Christianity. It was not present in first century texts.[citation needed]

Early church

With the creation of the catholic church, various forms of chiliasm (millennialism) were brought into the Church, both East and West.[3]

— Eusebius, The History of the Church, Book 3:39:11-13[4]

Strong opposition developed, most notably from Augustine of Hippo. But the Church never took a formal position on the issue and both pro and con positions remained. The 2nd century proponents of various Gnostic beliefs also rejected millennialism.[7]

Millennialism was taught by various earlier writers such as Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Commodian, Lactantius, Methodius, and Apollinaris of Laodicea .

The strong existence of millennialism in the organized Roman Church, in revealed in the early third century, Hippolytus of Rome who wrote:

And 6,000 years must needs be accomplished, in order that the Sabbath may come, the rest, the holy day “on which God rested from all His works.” For the Sabbath is the type and emblem of the future kingdom of the saints, when they “shall reign with Christ,” when He comes from heaven, as John says in his Apocalypse: for “a day with the Lord is as a thousand years.” Since, then, in six days God made all things, it follows that 6, 000 years must be fulfilled. (Hippolytus. On the HexaËmeron, Or Six Days’ Work. From Fragments from Commentaries on Various Books of Scripture).

Reformation and beyond

Comparison of Christian millennial interpretations

The Protestant reformation (c.1517). In particular, new emphasis was placed on the passages in the Book of Revelation which seemed to say that as Christ would return to judge the living and the dead, Satan would be locked away for 1000 years, but then released on the world to instigate a final battle against God and his Saints (Rev. 20:1–6). Previous Catholic and Orthodox theologians had no clear or consensus view on what this actually meant (only the concept of the end of the world coming unexpectedly, “like a thief in a night”, and the concept of “the antichrist” were almost universally held). Millennialist theories try to explain what this “1000 years of Satan bound in chains” would be like.

Various types of millennialism exist with regard to Christian eschatology, especially within Protestantism, such as Premillennialism, Postmillennialism, and Amillennialism. The first two refer to different views of the relationship between the “millennial Kingdom” and Christ’s second coming.

Premillennialism sees Christ’s second advent as preceding the millennium, thereby separating the second coming from the final judgment. In this view, “Christ’s reign” will be physically on the earth.

Postmillennialism sees Christ’s second coming as subsequent to the millennium and concurrent with the final judgment. In this view “Christ’s reign” (during the millennium) will be spiritual in and through the church.

Amillennialism denies a future literal 1000 year kingdom and sees the church age spiritually described in Rev. 20:1–6 ie. “Christ’s reign” is current in and through the church.

[INTERESTINGLY, the Catholic Church strongly condemns millennialism as the following shows:]

The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.

— Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1995)

Utopianism[edit]

See also: Three Eras

The early Christian concept had ramifications far beyond strictly religious concern during the centuries to come, as it was blended and enhanced with ideas of utopia.

In the wake of early millennial thinking, the Three Ages philosophy developed. The Italian monk and theologian Joachim of Fiore (died 1202) claimed that all of human history was a succession of three ages:

  1. the Age of the Father(the Old Testament)
  2. the Age of the Son(the New Testament)
  3. the Age of the Holy Spirit(the age begun when Christ ascended into heaven, leaving the Paraclete, the third person of the Holy Trinity, to guide)

It was believed that the Age of the Holy Spirit would begin at around 1260, and that from then on all believers would be living as monks, mystically transfigured and full of praise for God, for a thousand years until Judgment Day would put an end to the history of our planet.

The New Age movement was also highly influenced by Joachim of Fiore’s divisions of time, and transformed the Three Ages philosophy into astrological terminology.

The Age of the Father was recast as the Age of Aries,

the Age of the Son became the Age of Pisces,

and the Age of the Holy Spirit was called the Aquarian New Age.

The current so-called “Age of Aquarius” will supposedly witness the development of a number of great changes for humankind, reflecting the typical features of millennialism.[citation needed]

Jehovah’s Witnesses[edit]

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that Christ will rule from heaven for 1,000 years as king over the earth, assisted by 144,000 holy ones.

Baha’i Faith[edit]

See also: Progressive revelation (Baha’i)

Bahá’u’lláh mentioned in the Kitáb-i-Íqán that God will renew the “City of God” about every thousand years,[16] and specifically mentioned that a new Manifestation of God would not appear within 1000 years (1893-2893) of Bahá’u’lláh’s message, but that the authority of Bahá’u’lláh’s message could last up to 500,000 years.[17][18]

Theosophy[edit]

The Theosophist Alice Bailey taught that Christ (in her books she refers to the powerful spiritual being best known by Theosophists as Maitreya as The Christ or The World Teacher, not as Maitreya) would return “sometime after AD 2025”, and that this would be the New Age equivalent of the Christian concept of the Second Coming of Christ.[19][20]

Nazism[edit]

See also: Reich

The most controversial interpretation of the Three Ages philosophy and of millennialism in general is Adolf Hitler’s “Third Reich” (“Drittes Reich“), which in his vision would last for a thousand years to come (“Tausendjähriges Reich“), but which ultimately only lasted for 12 years (1933–1945).

The phrase “Third Reich” was originally coined by the German thinker Arthur Moeller van den Bruck, who in 1923 published a book titled Das Dritte Reich. Looking back at German history, he distinguished two separate periods, and identified them with the ages of Joachim of Fiore:

  • the Holy Roman Empire(beginning with Charlemagne in AD 800) – (the “First Reich”) – The Age of the Father and
  • the German Empire– under the Hohenzollern dynasty (1871–1918) (the “Second Reich”) – The Age of the Son.

After the interval of the Weimar Republic (1918–1933), during which constitutionalism, parliamentarism and even pacifism ruled, these were then to be followed by:

  • the “Third Reich” – The Age of the Holy Ghost.

Although van den Bruck was unimpressed by Hitler when he met him in 1922 and did not join the Nazi Party, the phrase was nevertheless adopted by the Nazis to describe the totalitarian state they wanted to set up when they gained power, which they succeeded in doing in 1933. Later, however, the Nazi authorities banned the informal use of “Third Reich” throughout the German press in the summer of 1939, instructing it to use more official terms such as “German Reich”, “Greater German Reich”, and “National Socialist Germany” exclusively.[21]

During the early part of the Third Reich many Germans also referred to Hitler as being the German Messiah, especially when he conducted the Nuremberg Rallies, which came to be held at a date somewhat before the Autumn Equinox in Nuremberg, Germany.

In a speech held on 27 November 1937, Hitler commented on his plans to have major parts of Berlin torn down and rebuilt:

[…] einem tausendjährigen Volk mit tausendjähriger geschichtlicher und kultureller Vergangenheit für die vor ihm liegende unabsehbare Zukunft eine ebenbürtige tausendjährige Stadt zu bauen […].

[…] to build a millennial city adequate [in splendour] to a thousand year old people with a thousand year old historical and cultural past, for its never-ending [glorious] future […]

After Adolf Hitler’s unsuccessful attempt to implement a thousand-year-reign, the Vatican issued an official statement that millennial claims could not be safely taught and that the related scriptures in Revelation (also called the Apocalypse) should be understood spiritually. Catholic author Bernard LeFrois wrote:

Millenium [sic]: Since the Holy Office decreed (July 21, 1944) that it cannot safely be taught that Christ at His Second Coming will reign visibly with only some of His saints (risen from the dead) for a period of time before the final and universal judgment, a spiritual millennium is seen in Apoc. 20:4–6. St. John gives a spiritual recapitulation of the activity of Satan, and the spiritual reign of the saints with Christ in heaven and in His Church on earth.[22]

Social movements[edit]

Millennial social movements are a specific form of millenarianism that are based on some concept of a one thousand-year cycle. Sometimes the two terms are used as synonyms, but this is not entirely accurate for a purist. Millennial social movements need not be religious, but they must have a vision of an apocalypse that can be utopian or dystopian. Those who are part of millennial social movements are “prone to be violent,” with certain types of millennialism connected to violence. The first is progressive, where the “transformation of the social order is gradual and humans play a role in fostering that transformation.” The second is catastrophic millennialism which “deems the current social order as irrevocable corrupt, and total destruction of this order is necessary as the precursor to the building of a new, godly order.” However the link between millennialism and violence may be problematic, as new religious movements may stray from the catastrophic view as time progresses.”


Food for thought.
