If you return, Israel—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
you will return to Me,
if you remove your detestable idols
from My presence
and do not waver,
then you can swear, “As the Lord lives,”
in truth, in justice, and in righteousness,
then the nations will be blessed by Him
and will pride themselves in Him. (Jeremiah 4:1-2)

Georgia Guidestones ‘completely demolished’ after explosion left monument damaged / USA TODAY, July 7, 2022

georgia-guidestones ani 1

A rural monument that was damaged in an intentional bombing this week has now been demolished over safety concerns, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced.

State officials also released surveillance video in the search for those responsible for setting off the explosion Wednesday morning at the Georgia Guidestones monument.

Erected in 1980, the massive granite monument stood 7 miles north of Elberton, near the South Carolina state line.

“For safety reasons, the structure has been completely demolished,” the investigations bureau posted on Twitter while releasing videos showing the powerful blast and what appears to be a four-door silver car at he scene.

Elbert County Sheriff’s Office deputies who responded to the scene found the explosion destroyed a large part of the monument, the bureau reported.

According to investigators, officials determined someone detonated an explosive device at the monument. They have not elaborated on what type of device it was, but pictures and drone footage show one of the four stone panels in rubble.

No one was injured.

As of Thursday, a motive in the bombing had not been released, and state and local authorities were still searching for a suspect in the case.

Before its demise this week, the 19-foot-high monument, commissioned by an unknown person or group under the name R.C. Christian, featured messages about world peace and population control in multiple languages.

Strange Georgia Guidestones Receive Fresh Attention in the Age of the Pandemic / INFOWARS, November 24th 2020

Georgia Guidestones 1

Mysterious stone monuments in Georgia that call for a drastic reduction in the earth’s population are receiving fresh attention in light of the global coronavirus pandemic.

The Georgia Guidestones were built in 1980 at a cost of $500,000 dollars on behalf of “a small group of loyal Americans” who remain anonymous to this day, but is believed to include philanthropist and population control-enthusiast Ted Turner.

Turner has repeatedly advocated for a 95 percent population reduction and attends weird confabs with the likes of Bill Gates and George Soros to discuss how globalists could use their wealth to “slow the growth of the world’s population.”

As Lesley Kennedy points out, “In the middle of the time of Covid, in 2020, the Georgia Guidestones take on a whole new meaning.”

The most controversial aspect of the stones is the message carved into them, which has made the monument a target for vandals on a number of different occasions.

The stones call for “maintaining humanity under 500 million,” a figure which the world hasn’t seen since the 1500’s and would require outright mass genocide to achieve.

The population reduction message has made the monument a target for those who believe that it’s a beacon for technocratic elitists to flaunt their new world order agenda:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

2. Guide reproduction wisely—improving fitness and diversity.

3. Unite humanity with a living new language.

4. Rule Passion—Faith—Tradition—and all things with tempered reason.

5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.

6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.

7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.

8. Balance personal rights with social duties.

9. Prize truth—beauty—love—seeking harmony with the infinite.

10. Be not a cancer on the earth—Leave room for nature—Leave room for nature.

.

new world order ani

The meaning of the Georgia Guidestones commandments are simple to understand:

1. We must massively reduce the earth’s population in harmony with “Mother Earth.”

2. We must manage the remaining people’s ability to reproduce, creating a pseudo-evolutionary system of survival of the fittest.

3. Turn back God’s order of man to pre-Tower of Babel times.

4. Tolerance must rule, even over truth.

5. All humanity must come under a system of international law. International law means world management via a supranational authority.

6. Each nation is accountable to the dictates of a world law authority. Sovereignty, in its presently understood form, would no longer exist.

7. Self-explanatory.

8. Mankind will be subject to the group’s concept of social responsibility, whatever that may be.

9. Those alive in this new order are to see God alive in all things—plants, rocks, animals, space, water, fire, air, and people. The idea is simple: God is in all because God is all. You too are therefore a god.

10. Humanity must recognize its secondary place in “creation.” Nature, embodied as a “god,” comes first.

When we hear the word idol, we often think of statues and objects reminiscent of those worshiped by pagans in ancient cultures.

An Asherah pole was a sacred tree or pole that stood near Canaanite religious locations to honor the pagan goddess Asherah, also known as Astarte.

goddess Asherah

While the exact appearance of an Asherah pole is somewhat obscure, it is clear that the ancient Israelites, after entering the land of Canaan, were influenced by the pagan religion it represented.

Asherah pole - 1

In the Bible, Asherah poles were first mentioned in Exodus 34:13. God had just remade the Ten Commandment tablets, and Moses had requested God graciously forgive the Israelites for worshiping the golden calf. Verse 10 begins the covenant God made: if the Israelites obey Him, He will drive out the tribes living in Canaan. But they must cut down the Asherah poles. Deuteronomy 7:5 and 12:3 repeat the command nearly verbatim, while Deuteronomy 16:21 commands the Israelites not set up any wooden Asherah poles of their own. Two books later, In Judges 3:7, “The sons of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgot the LORD their God and served the Baals and the Asheroth.”

Asherah pole - 2

Gideon became the first to fight against the infestation of Asherah poles, although, in his fear, he chopped his father’s Asherah pole down at night (Judges 6:25-27). The books of 1 & 2 Kings and 1 & 2 Chronicles tell a long story of one king chopping down Asherah poles and another building them back up. King Manasseh of Judah went so far as to install a pole in the temple of the Lord (2 Kings 21:3, 7). In the midst of a great cleansing, King Josiah took out the Asherah pole and ground it to powder, further defiling it by spreading the dust over graves (2 Kings 23:6).

bull cults in ancient Egypt 1

The bull cults in ancient Egypt are another example. Bull cults were popular from at least the First Dynasty. The powerful and virile bull was associated with the pharaoh, who sometimes took the epithet “strong bull of his mother”. As early as 3100 BC the king is depicted in the form of a bull. A sacred bull was identified by specific sacred markings. Once the bull had been confirmed as the incarnation of a god, it was housed in plush quarters, given only the best food, and provided with a harem of the best cows. The lucky animal would live in the lap of luxury until its death when it would be mummified and buried with full honors.

bull cults in ancient Egypt 2

The most famous of the bull cults is undoubtedly that of the Apis bull. The bull was the incarnation of a god, but unlike the other animal totems (who only provided a link to the god) the Apis was thought to host the god himself. The Apis bull was originally viewed as the manifestation of Ptah. However, the Apis was soon linked to Osiris when Ptah and Osiris merged and so Plutarch described the Apis as the “fair and beautiful image of the soul of Osiris”. According to one myth, the Apis was the living embodiment of Ptah while he lived and Osiris when he died.

But, the Lord commands His people not to worship idols.

The story of the golden calf is found in Exodus 32:1–6. The children of Israel had been in bondage in Egypt for over two hundred years. God called Moses, the deliverer, and told him that He had heard their cries and was about to deliver them (Exodus 3:6–8).

Moses-and-Pharaoh

During their time in Egypt, the Israelites had apparently begun to doubt the existence of the God their fathers worshiped because Moses anticipated some hard questions from them (Exodus 3:13). To help Moses prove the existence and power of God, he was given a number of miraculous signs to help the Israelites believe. After all of these miracles were done, including the ten plagues on the Egyptians, the Israelites came out of Egypt with a renewed belief in the God of their fathers. They passed through the Red Sea on dry land, while the Egyptian army was drowned, and they were brought to the mountain of God to receive His laws.

Exodus_Moses

While Moses was up on the mountain receiving God’s laws, the people were getting anxious down on the plain. Moses spent forty days (Exodus 24:18) up on the mountain with God, and by the end of that time, the people were beginning to think Moses had died or left them.

mt-moreb-2

The people urged Aaron, their temporary leader, to make gods for them to follow. Since they were accustomed to having visual representations of gods, this was the natural (but sinful) result of their thinking. Aaron took their gold earrings, which they had brought from Egypt, and melted them down to make a golden idol.

Golden-Calf

The idol he crafted for them was a calf, but Aaron maintained the name of the Lord in connection with it (Exodus 32:5). He was merging the pagan practices they were familiar with and the worship of the God they were just beginning to be re-acquainted with. Aaron called the people together and told them that the golden calf was the god who delivered them from Egypt. The people offered sacrifices and then engaged in pagan rituals, including orgies (Exodus 32:25) to worship this new god.

Destruction of the Golden Calf, Exodus XXXII 20

Why did he choose a bull? His lame excuse to Moses—“It just came out of the fire like this!” Exodus 32:24)—was just a feeble attempt to dodge blame. He fashioned it with a graving tool (Exodus 32:4) and took great care to form it that way. The bull was a symbol of strength and fertility, and the people were already familiar with bull gods from Egypt. Bulls were also typical animals of sacrifice, so to use their image as a symbol of the god being worshiped was a natural connection. Aaron’s bull was a mixture of the powerful God who delivered the people through mighty works and the pagan methods of worship that were borrowed from the people around them.

They forgot that the exodus is not merely an escape from slavery. It is the beginning of a covenant, a pact with God that will lead to freedom: freedom from slavery, freedom from tyranny, freedom to attach their lives to their Father and constant Protector.

If you return, Israel—
this is the Lord’s declaration—
you will return to Me,
if you remove your detestable idols
from My presence
and do not waver,
then you can swear, “As the Lord lives,”
in truth, in justice, and in righteousness,
then the nations will be blessed by Him
and will pride themselves in Him. (Jeremiah 4:1-2)

The idols of the 21st century often bear no resemblance to the artifacts used thousands of years ago. Today, many have replaced the “golden calf” with an insatiable drive for money or prestige or success in the eyes of the world.

The Bull - Chrislam and the Abraham Accords 2

Some pursue the high regard of others as their ultimate goal. Some seek after comfort or a myriad of other passionate, yet empty, pursuits.

Sadly, our societies often admire those serving such idols. In the end, however, it doesn’t matter what empty pleasure we chase after or what idol or which false god we bow down to; the result is the same—separation from the one true God.

crazy rich asians ani

Understanding contemporary idols can help us to understand why they prove to be such a powerful temptation. Our “bull” can be anything we place ahead of God in our lives, anything that takes God’s place in our hearts, such as possessions, careers, relationships, hobbies, sports, entertainment, goals, greed, addictions to alcohol/drugs/gambling/pornography, etc.

.

Some of the things we idolize are clearly sinful. But many of the things we idolize can be very good, such as relationships or careers. Yet Scripture tells us that, whatever we do, we are to “do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31) and that we are to serve God only (Deuteronomy 6:13; Luke 16:13).

cross man ani

Unfortunately, God is often shoved out of the way as we zealously pursue our idols. Worse yet, the significant amount of time we often spend in these idolatrous pursuits leaves us with little or no time to spend with the Lord.

The ultimate manifestation of idolatry is when the world worships the image of the Beast, and receives his mark:

Why ‘every person on the planet’ will need a digital ID / Venture Beat, June 21, 2017

…digital identity — the set of electronically captured and stored attributes and credentials that can uniquely identify a person — places control in the hands of the individual. If properly designed, digital identity can be portable (retrievable without reliance on a piece of paper), persistent (interoperable across institutions), private (only relevant information needs to be disclosed), and personal (uniquely linked to the individual).

Meanwhile, the UN High Commission on Refugees committed this week to piloting this type of user-owned identification for their beneficiaries — some of the people who could benefit from it most. And The Rockefeller Foundation, which is providing financial support to ID2020, led a discussion on the role of philanthropy in helping to finance this work.

ID2020 aims to have run multiple demonstration projects by 2020, with each providing valuable data on the costs for implementation, the legal and regulatory hurdles posed in different countries and populations, and the key incentives that drive adoption.

It’s a bold vision, but it’s not a crazy one. And it could change the lives of billions — mine, yours, and those of many more living around the world.

.

According to the Holy Bible, there are two humans (the beast and the “false prophet”) that are possessed by Satan in the last days, and they control a one world government and religion.

erdogan-pope-flags

The first scriptural references to the beast and his mark are in Revelation 13:

Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

en-pope-francis-mitre

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Pope-Erdogan-2

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

In a previous message, we investigated the country of Turkey and it’s President, Recep Erdogan. Recep has positioned Turkey as a partner in peace with the United States and Israel. The country is applying to become a part of the European Union. Note from our previous messages that with fiscal and political union, we see the current European Union as the beginnings of the imperial power of a revived Roman Empire. The geographical area of Turkey was an integral part of the original Roman Empire.

The global powers have determined that national sovereignty is destined to fail. We already see this happening with the economic collapse, well under way. When the Rapture happens, there will be global chaos:

breaking news alert ani

With governments crippled and devastated, and failed markets and banks, a “New World Order” will be the only solution offered, and then the Mark of the Beast will rise from the ruins of internationally failed economies. Note the economic focus of the Mark:

and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:17)

Today we are the first generation with the technology available to fulfill such a prophecy of a “cashless” society.

Already we are constantly hearing about the “New World Order”, or “global community”, and these buzz slogans are slowly sinking in as the world heads towards an international financial and political system, a cashless society controlled by a computer data base that covers the entire globe, keeping track of every man, woman and child, where they cross borders and when they buy and sell–exactly like the one predicted in Revelation chapter 13 nearly 2,000 years ago!

In the middle of the Tribulation, the Antichrist will enter the Jewish Temple and demand to be worshiped. He’ll also set up an image of himself. The image will be able to speak, and it will demand worship.

There are already many early prototypes of the image the Beast, using robotics and artificial intelligence:

If, sometime in the future, you are facing the choice of receiving this “mark” in your hand or forehead (whatever it is), REMEMBER the eternal consequences:

And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name(Revelation 14:11)

If you choose to not receive the mark, you will face death, but there is a great reward:

And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years(Revelation 20:4)

666

The time is running short. The beast will soon help broker the Israeli-Palestinian land for peace treaty, which will begin the dark 7 year period called the Tribulation.

The Good News is that we believe that the Rapture will occur before then. If you are a faithful and committed “Philadelphia” Christian, you may never have to face the choice of taking the mark or being put to death:

Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. (Revelation 3:10)  

.

If you are not sure that you are saved, you can accept Christ into your life right now, by praying:

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins.  Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life.  I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior.”

  1. As far as idols in public, the Washington Monument comes to mind. Obelisks are phallic symbols related to the Egyptian Sun god, Ra. The 4 sides of the Washington Monument are aligned with the cardinal directions (i.e., east, west, north, and south). At the ground level each side of the monument measures 55.5 feet long, which is equal to 666 inches. The height of the obelisk is 555.5 feet, which is equal to 6,666 inches.

  2. God blew up the Georgia guide stones with a bolt of lightning, and they demolished it. Less than 24 hours later, to hide the fact that God destroyed it.
