Today, a website that has known connections with Israeli intelligence is reporting that Qatari and British Special Forces units are already operating in (H)Qoms in spite of the failure of the United Nations anti-Syria resolution on Saturday, as first reported here. Other relevant reports suggest 15,000 Iranian Special Forces (Al-Quds Forces) are on their way to Damascus; that Syria has sent assassination squads to eliminate intelligence and military officials within the Lebanese military/political apparatus (with leanings to the March 14, Hariri led alliance) which considered to be helping ship armaments to the Syrian opposition; Russian is said to have prepared several thousand Spetsnax (Special Forces) for deployment to Syria; the Head of Israeli intelligence has surmised that Iran already has a working nuclear weapon and a delivery system with a range of 10,000 km and capable of reaching the USA, of course they have been making charges like this for 20 years; Turkey has been chomping at the bit for a fight with Syria in order to advance its dubious claim as leader of the Muslim World and rekindle dreams about a resurgent Ottoman Empire.

The soft and hard power of the Persians, who in 1979 started what we now call the Islamic Awakening, has grown beyond the control of Western control. Most importantly, the Americans are currently, it is reported, running Operation Bold Alligator in Florida. It is a war game where 20,000 US Special Forces personnel simulate the invasion of a Persian Gulf country (Iran). What do we have here? What interpretations can be made from this spattering of information? We will argue that the subject maybe Syria but the predicate is Israel – the Zionist regime.

There are many other observations that could be made. However, we will limit ourselves to a few central issues. These may include the truism that what the masses of people of the world see on popular media and therefore believe is mostly based on mere political theatre. If fact some of these reports cited herein may indeed be located in Lah’Lah’Land as well, but we are not currently so persuaded. However, it seems that while the world was engaged in a UN debate other decisions were already made and instituted (as judged by us) by the key players, on both sides. These included decisions to take actions inconsistent with international law. So what we have in Syria is a de facto state of war. Illegal war is the highest crime known to man – for it is only the UNSC that has the authority to declare war – except in circumstances of self-defense. Self-defense surely cannot be used by the Axis powers currently but may be constructed through a false flag operation, which may still be in its preparation. On the one hand are the collisions forces of Russia, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Hezbollah, Hamas and Chinese. The axis powers include the USA, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel, UK, Jordan, France, other EU countries and certain Lebanese factions. Most of the nuclear weapons held by states are in the hands of leading combatants. Adding the increasing confrontational military rhetoric in the Persian Gulf the battle lines are clearly drawn. Do we hear someone suggesting that a World War Three/Doomsday/Armageddon/2012 scenario at the behest of the Christian-Zionists is in the offing?

We have suggested elsewhere that Obama is more warlike than Bush, by a mile. His is the idea that the objectives of Bush can be achieved though fighting smart wars, undeclared wars, less costly wars.  To him very few troops are to be put on the ground but US involvement is intended to be limited to logistic, intelligence and Special Forces units. The colonialists and Praetorian Guard will do most of the dying. Obama will say ‘people will be dying every day but I did not declare war, as mandated by the US Constitution, The War Powers Act or Congress approval’. ‘I am merely aiding the dear, loving Syrian people who are being killed by a really bad dictator. Just like how I ‘helped’ the people of Libya. Never mind 50,000 died.’ Meanwhile, the real agenda is to topple as many anti-American regimes as possible. This is the Obama national security doctrine. A doctrine of a man who still finds himself on the defensive against charges of being a closet Muslim but has developed the most perversely pro-Zionist doctrine than any other titular leader in the history of the USA.

So we have several historical forces at work trying to avoid or hasten the impending collapse of the Zionist-Apartheid state. These include the Persians. Many in the West have long grossly underestimated the overall power of the Persians and they influence in the world. This may represent a monumental miscalculation for the West. Some were made wiser recently when their electronic war experts were able to down the most advance US spy drone, by the defeat of the Zionists by their staunch ally Hezbollah in the July 2006 war, by the statement of a western computer expert that the Persians have unique computer and electronic skills the reasons for which are not understood in the West. Most importantly, is what the Zionist call the culture of death. Unlike most other fighting forces the Persians soldiers embrace death, they look forward to it. There is a long cultural explanation for this. However, This ‘culture of death’ or as Shias see it as an embrace of the Karbala experience is far more threatening to Western warriors than the Japanese kamikaze bombers of World War Two – this combination of a lack of fear with high technological ability and military experience represent a formidable fighting force in any epoch.

And then there are the Babylonians. Represented by Iraq today, they are the kef and kin of the Persians. Like Iran they are majority Shia. Syria itself is minority Shia but a strategic part of the Shia Crescent. Babylon the Great of Saddam Hussein may have fallen but this Babylon as constructed by the USA is firmly in the axis of the coalition forces as led by China, Russia and Iran. We consider that the Ottomans lack the strategic depth, the technological ingenuity, the economic might, the soft power, the Martyrdom seeking spirit to be more than a marginal factor within the scheme of things.

We judge that the powers are on the one hand vying for or defending their influence and on the other hand trying to save the Zionist regime from total collapse or on the other hand assist them towards that fate. Obama has invested all that is American in the defense of the Zionist regime at its cat’s paw in the Middle East. However, nothing less than the total capitulation of the Iran/Russia/China coalition will save the Israelis.

    @ Zoe | February 13, 2012 at 9:55 AM |:
    Yes, even the ‘Scoffers’ of this evil world system, like the BU ‘Scoffing’ ‘Bildge Pumpers’ clan”.
    “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away till all be fulfilled.”

    Presumably, Zoe, you have the anunnaki included in this clan of scoffers.
    So Zoe explain to us the jump from the generation in the mythical Jesus’s alleged time (his generation) to the generation living in 2012.

    Maybe the story teller was referring to the age (era) of Pisces represented by the two fishes (the motif of your legendary friend Jesus and worn blatantly by the Pope as his mitre emblazoned with “Vicarius Filii Dei”).
    Stop taking the bible at face value and look deeper for its esoteric meaning and symbolism. Pisces represents the last link (house) in the Western Zodiacal cycle whether in the Sun’s annual progression or its 2160X12 precession (making an allowance for a shorter stay in Ophiuchus or Serpens the snake man – the 13th sign of the zodiac – the missing disciple).

  2. Hants is ranting

    @ Zoe

    How can you call God’s children “bilge pumpers”?

    What happened to “do unto others”,”christian charity”, “goodness and mercy”.

  3. The BU household regards the single best characteristic of a Christian is how he or she treats with others, particularly non believers.

  4. The main reason we need to watch world events such as those taking place in Syria, Libya, Egypt and Europe is for us to maintain a level of empathy for our brothers and sisters on this planet.

    Some of the horrible things that are reported in other parts of the World may not effect us economically to any great extent, but they should effect our gratitude for our health and well being, it should allow us to care about strangers and to appreciate the relative peace that we experience in these parts.

    We can learn from the mistakes of these developed nations and build our societies without wholesale adoption of the principles and desires that are destroying them.

    A major problem is when some nations try to push their agenda and belief system down the throats and into the minds of individual people and communities. Most countries use laws, science (education) and religion to do this and we are often so brainwashed through these three mediums that we will reject anything or anyone that goes against the “norm”

    This acceptance of brainwashing is brought about through fear; scared of breaking the law (a penalty); not asking some obvious questions through a fear of being excluded from the circle of acceptable scholars and a fear of death or what comes after this life.

    Love and empathy defeat fear every time. When we look into someones eyes we see our self.

    Peace

  5. Scoffers and Mockers

    Who are they and who are they mocking?

    By Dr. Ken Matto

    (Jude 1:18 KJV) How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

    (2 Pet 3:3 KJV) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

    Now the two verses in view are Jude 18 and 2 Peter 3:3. The Greek word for “mockers” in Jude 18 and “scoffers” in 2 Peter 3:3 are the same Greek word. It is “empaiktes.” In fact the actual word in the text is “empaiktai” (empaiktai) and it is a plural noun which means “mocker, scoffer, deceiver.” This word is used only in these two verses in the entire New Testament.

    The first thing we are going to look at is who are the mockers and scoffers but first we must look at the time frame in view. Now each of these verses have the same time frame in view. Both 2 Peter 3:3 and Jude 18 are focusing on the last days.

    In Jude 18 is the word “time” and it is “chronos.” The word carries with it the meaning of “an exact time of an event” or “an extended or shortened” period. What is in view here is the entire New Testament period. The last days began at the cross and Jude is pointing out that these last days are going to be filled with much deceit concerning the true teachings of Christ.

    In 2 Peter 3:3, the word “days” are used. They are literal days of time but the word “days” can also refer to a person’s lifetime or an indefinite period of time when used in the plural.

    Preceding the words “days” and “time” is the word “last.” The word “last” in the Greek is “eschatos” which carries with it the meaning of “last, least, final, or farthest.”

    (Heb 1:1-2 KJV) God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, {2} Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

    (1 John 2:18 KJV) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

    In 1 John 2:18, the Greek word for “time” is “hora” and it carries with it the meaning of “hour, time of day, or a period of time” and is used 110 times in the New Testament. So we can easily see that all of these verses are in total harmony. 1 John 2:18 speaks of the entire New Testament period as being the last hour. Acts 2:17 & Hebrews 1:1-2 harmonize that thought by plainly stating we are in the last days.

    We have firmly established that the last days, when the scoffers and mockers will attack the body of Christ, is the entire New Testament period. These scoffers and mockers are not limited to a certain period of time but have been present throughout the entire New Testament period. All one need do is to study church history and one will see that the mocking and scoffing, many times had its crescendo in martyrdom of the Christians. In modern times, true Christians are mocked and scoffed by many. All one has to do is see how Christianity is treated in the media versus false religions. Christianity is reviled not only in the media but also in the world of academia. So true Christianity has been derided since its inception. Now let us look at each of the verses in view.

    Who are The Mockers and Scoffers?

    (2 Pet 3:3-4 KJV) Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, {4} And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
    After – Preposition means “according to”

    Own – Possessive Pronoun meaning belonging to one’s self, private

    We will start with 2 Peter 3:3. In the last days, that is, from the cross to the last day of history there is going to come scoffers who are walking according to their own lusts. Since these are unbelievers in view, they walk according to the darkness which is inside them. They are unregenerate so they walk according to their lusts. The true Christian walks according to the Spirit, not according to the flesh which is akin to walking in the sinful nature. We read in Galatians 5:16 & 25 the fact that the Christian has the Holy Spirit living in them and therefore we walk according to the Spirit.

    (Gal 5:16 KJV) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

    (Gal 5:25 KJV) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

    Who we have in view here are the unbelievers who continue to mock and scoff at true Christianity. To verse 4. When the second coming of Christ is proclaimed, the scoffers continue to ask where is the fulfillment of the promise that was made about His second coming? They misunderstand one great thing in that since the time of creation there was a worldwide flood. This means they ignore the fact that God intervened in the world at the time of Noah and He will intervene again by ending this world. Just because they see things going on from day to day, they believe that life is perpetual and there will be no end. Just as the ancient world was surprised when God shut the Ark, there will be a horrible surprise when God ends this present world. Any true Christian who has done their Bible study will be cognizant of the fact of Noah’s flood. The scoffers are the unbelievers who do not believe in a worldwide flood and therefore they mock the idea that an end of the world is coming.

    Jude 17-19

    (Jude 1:17-19 KJV) But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; {18} How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. {19} These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

    2 Peter was written about 66-67 A.D. The book of Jude was written after 2 Peter but no date has been determined for its writing. Jude basically builds upon the same theme which Peter spoke of, that is, the last days but is more forthright in his declaration. He states specifically in verse 19 that the mockers are unbelievers because they do not have the Holy Spirit living in them. (Rom 8:9 KJV) But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. So we do not even have to guess who the mockers and scoffers are since the Bible tells us who they are in no uncertain terms. They are the unbelievers who have opposed Christianity since its inception and will continue to do so until the last day.

    What is not considered Mocking and Scoffing?

    The reality is the believers are commanded in the Scriptures to test the very spirits. That is very far from mocking and scoffing.
    (1 John 4:1 KJV) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    Try – Scrutinize, test, or prove

    We are told not to believe every spirit and God links this with false prophets who bring false teachings.

    (2 Pet 2:1 KJV) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

    Now we see the warning given to us in 2 Peter 2:1 that among the ancient nation of Israel there were false prophets among the people. Then God goes on to warn the church and the Christians in general that there is going to be false prophets among them too. If you notice, the prophets do not come from an outside group but are among the people. If one studies church history, they will find that cults and “isms” have come out of the church by unsaved individuals, such as Jonathan Taze Russell, Congregational Church, who started the Jehovah’s Witnesses, William Miller, a Baptist preacher, and Ellen White, a Methodist started the Seventh Day Adventists, Jim Jones, Disciples of Christ, founded the People’s Temple. It is also an important parallel that Harold Camping was in the Reformed church and came out and brought all his disciples with him. He is no different than any other cult leader.

    So 2 Peter 2:1 is an apt warning to every Christian, whether in a church or not, that we must realize that false prophets will be within Christianity. The word “prophet” means to declare God’s word and does not necessarily mean a person receiving special revelation from God as those who did before the completion of the Bible. So since we know that there will be false prophets among the Christians, it is our responsibility to try or test the spirit behind every teaching we hear. To test and scrutinize teachings does not constitute mocking or scoffing. It constitutes obedience to the Scriptures.

    When we come to a teaching which is against the straight teaching of Scripture, by rejecting that teaching and even exposing it, does not mean we are mocking and scoffing. It means we are exposing the false teachings of an individual so others will not be snared into their net. So do not fear the false accusations of being a mocker or scoffer if you reject the teachings of a false teacher or system.

    Summary

    Mockers and scoffers are always unbelievers according to the Scriptures. They are the ones who oppose the Christians and the teachings of the Bible. These people have been around since the inception of Christianity and will be here until the last day.

    Christians who scrutinize the teachings of any individual are being obedient to the Scriptures. We must make sure that we adopt true Bible teaching. This is why the true believer must always be on guard when hearing any teaching so they may compare it to the written word. If the teaching opposes Scripture, then it is to be rejected and to reject false teaching is obedience and not mocking and scoffing.

  6. Are we all God’s children, or only Christians?

    Question: “Are we all God’s children, or only Christians?”

    “Answer: The Bible is clear that all people are God’s creation (Colossians 1:16), and that God loves the entire world (John 3:16), but only those who are born again are children of God (John 1:12; 11:52; Romans 8:16; 1 John 3:1-10).”

    “In Scripture, the lost are never referred to as children of God. Ephesians 2:3 tells us that before we were saved we were “by nature objects of wrath.” Romans 9:8 says that “it is not the natural children who are God’s children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham’s offspring.” Instead of being born as God’s children, we are born in sin, which separates us from God and aligns us with Satan as God’s enemy (James 4:4; 1 John 3:8). Jesus said, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me” (John 8:42). Then a few verses later in John 8:44, Jesus told the Pharisees that they “belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire.” The fact that those who are not saved are not children of God is also seen in 1 John 3:10: “This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother.”

    “We become children of God when we are saved because we are adopted into God’s family through our relationship with Jesus Christ (Galatians 4:5-6; Ephesians 1:5). This can be clearly seen in verses like Romans 8:14-17: “…because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father.’ The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.” Those who are saved are children “of God through faith in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:26) because God has “predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will” (Ephesians 1:5).

  7. This Generation Shall Not Pass, Till
    All These Things be Fulfilled.
    -by Tony Warren

    Matthew chapter twenty-four has been a difficult chapter for many Christians to understand, even for seasoned theologians. A frequently asked question concerning this chapter is Christ’s declaration that a generation should not pass until all the things (which He had talked about) would be fulfilled. The question I hear a lot is, “how could all those things that Christ had spoken about, be fulfilled before that generation had passed?”

    Matthew 24:33-34

    “So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
    Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”

    The problem is, many people understand that this Chapter is speaking about later day occurrences, and so they are puzzled as to how the phrase, “this generation,” fits the context. The confusion exists because the average Christian is unaware that there are several ways that this Greek word [genea], translated generation, is used in scripture. This is in contrast to extra-biblical or secular dictionary definitions. First of all it is from the root word [genos] meaning kindred or family. In conjunction with that, it is used three distinct ways within scripture.

    1. It can be used to denote a physical family generation or bloodline.
    2. It can be used to denote the spiritual family or generation of evil.
    3. And it can be used to denote the spiritual family or generation of Christ.

    These are three very distinct and Biblically justifiable applications of this word. The word generation is unambiguously used in the Bible in all three of these contexts, so that even those of Praeterit Eschatology will not deny this fact.

    Another point that is worthy of note is that scripture has always dated itself by “Patriarchs” or founding father figures. Even to this day we date this way (probably without even giving it much thought). Whenever someone says that, “this is the year 1999,” they are dating (though not accurately) by our Patriarch reference, Christ. In other words, we are saying that we are living 1,999 years after the birth of Christ (AD, anno domini, or the year of our Lord). He is the Patriarch reference by which most of the civilized world dates today. This is a biblical and historical practice that dates back to the beginning, and is explained in depth in my paper on the “The Biblical Timeline of Creation.” The point being, the year we use is really a Patriarch Family reference.

    There are three words translated “generation” in the New Testament. They are [gennema], [genos] and [genea]. And the root of all three refer to family or kin. By extension or by implication it can also mean a period of a family line, or even a Patriarch’s offspring. For example, if someone declared that something occurred in the 4th generation, they would be telling us that it happened in the family period of the 4th child born. So it would be illustrating a “particular family relationship” removed by three from the Patriarch reference. Understanding this principle, we can see how God unambiguously uses the word generation in scripture to signify not only the Spiritual family of God, but also the spiritual family of His adversary Satan.

    These are of two contrasting and distinct seeds. Even as God Himself spoke of them in the garden as having enmity. The children of God and children of the Devil are two diverse and distinct generations or families from those two seeds. The family of God extends all the way back to Abel. And likewise, the family of Satan extends all the way back to Cain. Clearly, the way God uses the phrase, “the Generation of evil,” makes it synonymous with the children (or family) of the Devil. It does not refer only to an immediate present family group. The Generation of evil refers to all the seed of the Serpent, throughout time, who are in that generation by their patriarchal relationship. Just as the children of God refer to the whole family of God, which is “a chosen generation” or family, that has existed throughout time. It’s not just people who happen to be living at the time in which the phrase was written. God uses family relationships to illustrate those who are of the same spiritual kinship. e.g.

    John 8:44

    “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.”

    Jesus is clearly elucidating the truths that they were part of a particular spiritual family group, and He identifies their father as the Devil. So we see that Satan is the spiritual Patriarch reference for this generation or family. And he has many children, not just these whom Christ was immediately speaking to. All those under Satan’s spiritual control are the generation or kindred of evil, which existed from the beginning. In Biblical terms, they are the spiritual offspring or generation of their Patriarch reference, that old Serpent, Satan. When Christ speaks of the “generation of vipers,” He is identifying that seed or family group who serve their father Satan. He is not talking about everyone in that physical time period. Or all living in that physical generation timespan.
    Matthew 12:32-35

    “And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
    Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
    O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

    A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.”
    How can a family of vipers, the children of the serpent, speek good things, when they speak from the heart, which is full of evil. This generation [gennema] (meaning offspring or kindred) that Christ references is the seed of the serpent, the children of vipers. And that clearly cannot be the Apostles, John the Baptist, Mary, Elizabeth, or any of the true Church of that time. They cannot commit the unforgivable sin. Of necessity it has to be only the unregenerate ‘family’ of evil, who cannot escape the damnation of Hell. Not a generation, which would mean all those in that particular time frame. Therefore, when Christ calls them the generation of vipers, he is not referring to all those people of that time (as people often understand generation today), but he is speaking only of the seed of the serpent, Satan. It is a family (generation) of evil that cannot escape the damnation of Hell. And Satan their spiritual Patriarch father.
    Matthew 23:32-34

    Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
    Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
    Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:”
    It is self evident that if this word means that all this generation (as many understand the word to mean) was all a bunch of vipers, children of their fathers who couldn’t escape the damnation of hell, then it would mean the Apostles also. Because the Apostles were of that generation “if” the word Generation really meant what Praeterits believe it means. But obviously, Christ is not talking about all that physical generation, He is talking about those who are a generation (family) of vipers.
    Psalms 140:1-3

    “Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
    Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
    They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.”

    The adder is a viper, and this generation of vipers is the family of evil and wicked men. Men who, out of the evil in their hearts, bring forth wicked things. And so we see that there is not only precedence for the word generation not to be understood to mean the present time, but many times the context itself “demands” that it not be understood that way. Generation of vipers did not mean everyone there, so it could not mean that literal or physical time period generation. It is speaking about a spiritually wicked family [gennema], not what many believe to be that whole present generation that lived at this time.

    And we should also not lose sight of the fact that, in order for the “All” to be fulfilled in that generation (which Christ spoke about in Matthew chapter 24), the time He refers to must be at the end of the world/age. And when we study the context of Matthew chapter 24, it becomes abundantly clear that “this end time period” is what God is referring to in the chapter.

    Matthew 24:3

    “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

    Of course we are well aware of some of the claims that the end of the age was in 70 AD, but that is a Biblically untenable position. The proponents of this theory come to this conclusion by selectively interpreting age/world [aion], and then arbitrarily making the supposition that there was an end of the age in 70 AD. This, despite the fact that there is absolutely no Biblical warrant for declaring 70 AD as the end of an age. Not one single scripture makes that claim. And while they insist Matthew 24 (the end of the world) is a mistranslation of the word [aion] meaning age, they are still unable to coherently explain verses such as Luke chapter 18:
    Luke 18:30

    “Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.”

    This is the exact same Greek word [aion], meaning world/age. If that present time Jesus spoke in, was before 70 AD when they received manifold more, and the age to come was eternal life for them, then obviously 70 AD being the next age (according to their theory), must have been the age of eternal life Jesus spoke of. Did eternal life come after 70 AD? Did life everlasting start after 70 AD? No, not at all, it started at the cross, and is consummated at the end of the world/age. So this theory is truly bankrupt and void of any solid scriptural foundation. Jesus is obviously speaking not about an alleged coming age in 70 AD, but about the end of the world/age when He would return, and “all” would be fulfilled. That is the world/age to come, when we would receive the everlasting life. That is what the Disciples asked in Matthew 24. When would this timing be?
    The fact is, this 70 AD doctrine is convoluted on many fronts, because there was never any Biblical foundation for making a prophecy of a new age established in 70 AD in the first place. Biblical Theology must be established on biblical foundations, not on inconsistent and contradictory supposition and theory. Of necessity these theologians would have to place another age between the cross and the end of the world for this theory to be true. In effect, splitting the New Testament period into diverse ages. The New Testament age before 70 AD that was established by Christ’s cross, and another age after 70 AD, because their position on 70 AD is untenable without it. However, it is also quite unbiblical with it!

    But the question remains, what is Matthew chapter 24 really saying? Look at the context circumspectly. The overview of this chapter is that God is not only warning the disciples about false teachers, persecutions and, false Christs, but the Churches throughout time as well. The Bible isn’t just written for those to whom any epistle or letter is addressed. It is for all the Church to consider. That is a basic and fundamental truth in understanding scripture. i.e., the book of Thessalonians is addressed to the Thessalonians, but is written to the Universal Church throughout time. The Book of Romans is written to the Romans, but is for all the Church throughout time. When Jesus told the disciples to do this in remembrance of Him (Communion), He was not merely giving “them” a commandment, but instituting this practice for the whole Church throughout time. This is just basic hermeneutical precepts essential for sound exegesis. Likewise, when Jesus said, “this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled,” He was talking to all of the Church throughout time. He was talking about “the generation or family of evil,” as the context shows. And true to His word, it has not passed. We will always have false prophets, we will always have wars, we will always have the wicked, because we will always have the generation of evil,until all is fulfilled!

    So let’s review the context of Matthew 24 for our answer to the question of how to understand how the Generation should not pass. Jesus is warning the disciples (and all of us) about the coming wickedness (and particularly, those who call themselves of Christ), and how they will thrive as wolves in sheep’s clothing, as false prophets, as false Christ’s, with all the signs and deception. He speaks of a deception so clever that it would deceive even the elect (chosen) if that were possible. He tells the Apostles (and us) to watch, for these are the signs that will alert us of His soon second coming. Supporting this, He says, “this generation shall not pass until all these things be fulfilled.” Note carefully that He doesn’t say some things might be fulfilled, but all these things must first be fulfilled. E.g., false Prophets, nation against nation, famines, pestilence and earthquakes in divers places. Things like these people delivering you up to be afflicted, and killed, and when you are hated of “all nations” for Christ’s name’s sake. Things like the abomination of desolation, the gospel preached to the entire world for a witness. Things like the great tribulation, the sun being darkened and the moon not giving light. Things like the stars falling from heaven, the powers of heaven being shaken, and the Son of man coming on the clouds of Glory, etc., etc. The only generation that shall not pass until all these things are fulfilled is “The Generation of Vipers,” the family of evil. A physical generation will pass and indeed has passed, and we still have all these things. But the generation of evil is the generation that produces the false Christs. Clearly, the generation of evil is a family relationship that runs from Adam and Eve’s son Cain, until the time of Judgment (when all shall be fulfilled). This generation comprises the span of the history of the world. As long as there is the seed of the Serpent, there is this Generation. This Family.

    Psalms 12:6-8

    “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
    Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
    The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted.”

    Preserve them from what generation [dowr], posterity or family? The people of David’s day? No, not at all. From the generation Christ spoke of that shall not pass until all be fulfilled. Preserved for ever from the generation which is stigmatized as a generation of snakes and of evil. This generation will be on this earth until Christ returns on the clouds of Glory, and all is finally fulfilled. And it is “this generation” of evil that will be the family that shall be Judged of God. God spoke of this generation in Luke chapter 11.
    Luke 11:50-51

    “That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;”

    From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.

    Were all those people who were standing there (Generation, or all the physical people of that time) guilty of the blood of all the Prophets from Abel to Zacarias that they would be judged of God for those murders? God Forbid! The Apostles and the rest of those who believe who stood there won’t have the blood of the Prophets required of them. That is quite obvious to anyone who knows anything about scripture, or of Christianity. So it cannot mean that age or time. God declares that every man is responsible only for his own sins, not the sins of others (Deuteronomy 24:16). So how is the blood of Abel and all of these Prophets required of “this generation” that Christ spoke of? It can only be because those who killed the Prophets, though they lived hundreds of years before Christ, were still all a part of that generation of which Christ spoke. Selah! All who are of the family of Satan “are part of the generation” that killed Abel. i.e., they are the seed of the Serpent.
    Genesis 3:14-15

    “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
    And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”
    The two seeds speak of two distinct families. The seed or family that springs forth of Christ, and the seed of family that springs forth of the Serpent. Two distinct genealogies or families. That is why Christ spoke of the wicked as the generation [gennema] of vipers. That Greek word conveys or indicates offspring or progeny. Christ was very literally calling them the spiritual children of the serpent. That is the generation He spoke of. So when Christ said that the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world will be required of “this generation,” this could not logically, rationally, or Biblically mean everyone physically standing there at the time. So what it does mean should be self-evident. It refers only to the generation or kinship of evil. Those of the lineage or family of Satan, whom Christ called the seed or children of the Devil. Moreover, let’s be clear that this phrase I use (Generation of evil) is not something that I privately dreamed up to support anyone’s generation views, it is a phrase that was divinely inspired and inerrant in its usage.
    Luke 11:29

    “And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet”.

    This Greek word [genea] is likewise from the root word meaning kindred. It is the same word found in Matthew chapter 24 translated generation. Was Christ saying there would no sign be given to the wise men, the Apostles, or the 70 disciples that He sent out to witness two by two? Of course not. And yet they were physically part of the literal “time” generation of that day.

    But they were not part of generation that Christ was speaking of here. For Christ is not talking about the physical generation of that time anymore than He was talking about them in Matthew chapter 24. It is the evil and adulterous generation (or family) of the Serpent that shall receives no sign. None except that of Jonas the prophet (the scripture record). But the
    generation or family of Christ, He indeed has given signs (Mark 16:20, Hebrews 2:4). That should be proof enough for any logical thinking person that this generation was not referring to mmen of a time period. These are two distinct generations. If we’re only to understand the word “generation” to mean those living there at the time (as some insist we must), then none of the Apostles, nor anyone else in that day or that generation could escape the damnation of hell. Because Christ had said that “that generation” couldn’t. But the truth is a lot less complicated, and in total agreement will the whole of scripture. The generation of evil is the one that shall receive no signs, and that cannot escape the damnation of hell, because it is the children or family of Satan. It is the seed of the Serpent.
    Luke 21:32-34

    “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
    Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
    And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.”

    Again, this word translated generation is [genea], same as it is in Matthew 24. It is often used to express family relationship or posterity. It is this family of evil that shall not pass away until all is fulfilled. This definition is also clearly demonstrated in the Septuagint, where in passages like Genesis 43:7 declaring, “The man asked us straitly of our kindred,” the word Kindred is [genea]. Or in Numbers 10:30, “I will depart to my own kindred.” Again, Kindred is the word [genea]. Likewise in Leviticus 20:18, “Both shall be cut off from their people.” Here, the word people is [genea]. I quote the Septuagint only to demonstrate that clearly, the meaning of this word was clearly known of old, and used to denote “family.” Thus it cannot be scholastically alleged that it must mean the term of man’s life in passages like matthew 24.
    Luke 7:30-35

    But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves, being not baptized of him.

    And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like

    They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept.
    For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.
    The Son of man is come eating and drinking; and ye say, Behold a gluttonous man, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners!
    But wisdom is justified of all her children.

    Were the Apostles the generation of evil, the children or seed of Satan, the family of the Devil? Most certainly not. God’s word boldly declares that Christians are a chosen generation. So ask yourself a simple question.

    How can the people living at the time of Christ, be both called of God a chosen generation, and yet also be a generation that cannot escape the damnation of hell? The obvious answer is that they can’t. For they are two separate generations or families that Christ spoke about. Would we say that “everyone” living there at the time must be part of the chosen generation just because someone arrogantly insists the word generation demands it? Not if we use common sense. The ‘chosen generation’ is the family of God, selected by God. It’s not everyone living in that physical time period, nor is it only that time period.
    1st Peter 2:9

    “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”

    Here we see the “truth” of the matter. Only the true believers are the [eklektos genos] or chosen generation. Not everyone at the time this was written, but everyone throughout time who were Predestinated to be of the family of God (Galatians 3:26-29; 1st John 3:9-10). Because we have two distinct generations coexisting in this world. A generation of evil that cannot escape the damnation of hell, and a chosen generation of God that will inherit heaven. Both these generations, or families, spans eons of time.
    Philippians 2:15

    “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;”

    That Greek word that is translated “nation” is the exact same word [genea] that is translated generation in Matthew 24. It is illustrating the crooked and perverse people who are a “family” or generation of evil. This is that very same [genea] that shall not pass until all be fulfilled. Note that here in Philippians it is contrasted with “the sons of God,” or the children of God, who shine as lights among them.

    These generations aren’t periods of time spanning ones life, they last until all is fulfilled at Christ’s return. One generation shall not escape the damnation of Hell, and the other is a special people who shall (by Christ’s blood) escape the damnation of Hell. The classic illustration of just this contrast, is found in the book of Luke, chapter 16:

    Luke 16:8

    “And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.”

    Again, this is the exact same word [genea] that is found in Matthew chapter 24. It speaks of the wicked in their generation being a family wiser than the “children of Light.” i.e., it’s illustrating that in this way, the seed or children of God are not as smart as the seed or children of the Devil. And again, it’s impossible that this word as used here refers simply to a literal life span.

    The generation or children of this world, is the generation that the Lord was warning the Church against in Matthew chapter 24. The family of this world are a generation of evil, and it shall not pass until “all” be fulfilled.

    Comparing scripture with scripture, it would be ludicrous for anyone to insist that the word generation meant a present day generation in these passages, considering all the pertinent scriptures that use the word. Yet there are many that choose to make such untenable arguments. Nevertheless, we know some things for certain:

    Number one, While some make the claim that the end of the age was in 70 AD, there is not one single scripture that supports such a conclusion, and many scriptures that preclude it. There was instituted a new dispensation (age) when Christ died, was resurrected, and sent His holy Spirit that the Church go forth to witness with power. But there was no new dispensation or age instituted years later in 70 AD.

    Number two, there is nothing in scripture that declares the word translated “generation” must always be understood to mean people physically present at the time, and much of scripture that precludes it (as I’ve clearly shown).

    Number three, there is abundant proof texts in scripture that the entire New Testament period was (and still is) the end times, the last days, and the last age, “indicating” that there would not be any other age following this one. Except of course, “the age to come,” which is Christ’s return and consummation in everlasting life. That is when “all” will be fulfilled as required by Matthew 24, and indeed by all of scripture. That is when this evil generation shall finally pass. Selah! That is when the kingdom will be delivered up to the father. This will occur at ‘The last Day.’

    Revelation 6:11

    “And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”

    When will all be fulfilled? When this evil generation is no longer ruling with the prince of this world. In other words, when Christ returns. There is this age, and the age to come, and no age in between. That’s the whole purpose of God using the term “last days” to signify that there are no more days after these New Testament days. There are no more dispensations. It is self evident that contrary to interpretive license, the age of the last days was instituted by the death and resurrection of Christ, not in 70 AD. And the age to come is at the end of “this age” when Christ returns. The generation that will not pass till all be fulfilled is the generation that the entire chapter of Matthew 24 so vividly warned against. In context, the false prophets, false teachers, deceivers, false Christs, abomination, tribulation, and all that this evil generation brings forth, will not pass until Christ’s return. Then, and only then, will ‘all’ be fulfilled. Then and only then will this generation pass. Selah!

    Obviously, there are some who are genuine ‘seekers’ of the Truth, though confused at this point in time, AND they also know who they are!

  10. Any attempt to use the ‘Esoteric’ methodology of interpretation to God’s Word, the Bible, is erroneous, false, and contrary to the sound principles of Biblical Hermeneutics, Contextual Analysis, and Linguistic Exegesis, period!

    Esotericism: From Wikipedia,

    “Arcane” and “Esoteric” redirect here. For other uses, see Arcane (disambiguation) and Esoteric (disambiguation).

    Esotericism or Esoterism signifies the holding of esoteric opinions or beliefs,

    [1] that is, ideas preserved or understood by a small group or those specially initiated, or of rare or unusual interest.[2] The term derives from the Greek ἐσωτερικός (esôterikos), a compound of ἔσω (esô): “within”, thus “pertaining to the more inward”, mystic. Its antonym is “exoteric”.

    The term can also refer to the academic study of esoteric religious movements and philosophies, or more generally of alternative or marginalized religious movements or philosophies whose proponents distinguish their beliefs, practices, and experiences from mainstream institutionalized traditions.[3]

    Examples of esoteric religious movements and philosophies include Alchemy, Astrology, Anthroposophy, early Christian mysticism[4], Magic, Mesmerism, Rosicrucianism, Swedenborgianism, Spiritualism, the Alawites,[5] the Christian Theosophy of Jacob Böhme and his followers, and the Theosophical currents associated with Helena Blavatsky and her followers.

    There are competing views regarding the common traits uniting these currents, not all of which involve “inwardness”, mystery, occultism or secrecy as a crucial trait.

    “These are of two contrasting and distinct seeds. Even as God Himself spoke of them in the garden as having enmity. The children of God and children of the Devil are two diverse and distinct generations or families from those two seeds. The family of God extends all the way back to Abel. And likewise, the family of Satan extends all the way back to Cain. Clearly, the way God uses the phrase, “the Generation of evil,” makes it synonymous with the children (or family) of the Devil.”

    Zoe, you really feel that BU readers are a bunch of simpletons easily brainwashed by religious bigotry and crap. Some of us can reason and question things as expected from those who were privileged to benefit from a sound university education.
    Now tell us Zoe, where in the book of Genesis is it mentioned that Abel had children? As far as we know the book said that Cain killed Abel and went to the Land of Nod and took a wife. In the absence of any biblical evidence that Abel had children one can only conclude (according to your story) that we are all the descendants /products of incestuous relationships among Cain, his younger brother Seth and their sisters and presumably the mother and father who sanctioned all of the goings-on. What a story on morality! Listen mate, based on your reasoning, we are all children of Satan (except you, of course!).

    If I were you I would join the Freemasons and hopefully you might get a more informed appreciation of the Creation story and the role of the “serpent’ or reptilian influence on human DNA (double helix strand) maybe you friend PhD can assist you here.

  13. Mr . Miller, I have no idea how the serpent could biologically influence our foreparents dna functioning, but temtaption can lead to a whole pile of reactions in our bodies, if not controlled can land us all in a whole heap of trouble. Was’nt it that that started it all?

    Genes significantly influence on our behaviours , but in combination with the environment we live in.
    As the most highly intelligent of all species, we have species specific behaviours, but also the lesser species as well. We have inherited tendencies as well as learned behaviours. Genes do not rigidly enforce any behaviour or predetermine which unacceptable behaviour we will indulge in.

    There was a study done on families with two or more siblings, at least one of which was homosexual. Fifty two percent of cases where the brothers were monozygotic (identical twins) , the other brother was also homosexual. Twenty two percent of dizygotic (nonidentical) the other was homosexual, and nine percent in nontwin brothers.
    The 52% therefore shows that genes do not inevitably determine sexual orientation, if not it would have been 100% in that example.

    So there is no such thing as a gene for any specific behaviour, aggression, gay genes, alcholic genes or any other such.

    Very basically , genes encode proteins, but THROUGH proteins they can influence behaviour. The hormone testosterone, which plays a large part in both aggression and sex, is synthesized by enzymes, (proteins encoded by DNA). So one sees a connection here.

    I think Zoe is far more capable at explaining the scriptures than I ever will be. It requires a special type of knowledge which I am yet to acquire.

    Blessings my friend.

    “The 52% therefore shows that genes do not inevitably determine sexual orientation, if not it would have been 100% in that example.”

    I will never argue that genes determine human sexuality; but they do play a part. If genes were solely responsible then one could expect that the offspring of homosexual parents would most likely be homosexual just like their parent(s). Hormones especially those active while the child is in the mother’s womb have a significant part in the child future sexual development.
    By the way there is a species of primate called the bonobo that display all the sexual characteristics humans tend to imitate; including homosexuality.

    But what I was referring to about the serpent in the Garden of Eden was not a “literal” snake but a symbolic representation of a reptilian-like race of beings that genetically engineered monkey man to homo sapiens.

  15. @NukkiRalian,

    Man, Satan has so reptilzed your brain with this utter nonsense, no wonder you can’t think straight and rational, NO amount of secular, humantistic University education, can enlighten ones mind, with the Spiritual TRUTH* of God’s Word, the Bible, as it remains FOOLISHNESS to him, as the wisdom of this world IS* FOOLISHNESS to Almighty God, you are (de de pseukikos anthropos) a naturally, and spiritually unregenerate* man!

    BTW my computer is working terribly slow, almost not functioning at all, consequently I can’t at this time respond to your redherring distractive question!

    “But what I was referring to about the serpent in the Garden of Eden was not a “literal” snake but a symbolic representation of a reptilian-like race of beings that genetically engineered monkey man to homo sapiens.”

  16. BTW NakiRalian, I WAS a Past Master in Freemasonary, one of the youngest PM’s in the history of the Masonic Order, so I KNOW all about the LIES and DECEPTION, as taught in the Order, from whence I WAS delivered by HIM who IS* THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, who sets you FREE from the bondage of Satanic DARKNESS!
