The Mary In the King James Bible Bears No Resemblance To The ‘Blessed Mother’ Of Roman Catholicism

If Mary was, as the Vatican asserts, “fashioned by the Holy Spirit” and then “kept free from all sin”, then the birth of Jesus is not so special after all. Mary kinda beats Jesus to the punch, wouldn’t you say? But then, stealing the glory from Jesus Christ is really what the Roman Catholic “Mary” was invented to do.

by Geoffrey Grider May 13, 2017

Catholics are taught to “pray to the Blessed Mother” for leading and guidance in their daily lives, yet incredibly the real-life Mary never advised anyone on anything. When she attempted, one time, to give her opinion, Jesus instantly rebuked her

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” Matthew 1:18 (KJV)

Almost 1,900 years after the birth of the biblical Mary, the Roman Catholic Church declared some startling and amazing things about her. Not the least of which was the blasphemous and heretical notion that she was born sinless.

“The Fathers of the Eastern tradition call the Mother of God “the All-Holy” (Panagia), and celebrate her as “free from any stain of sin, as though fashioned by the Holy Spirit and formed as a new creature”. By the grace of God Mary remained free of every personal sin her whole life long.” Catechism of the Catholic Church

This idea was unknown to any writer in the New Testament which clearly states that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” in the book of Romans. Yet the idea of a “sinless Mary” forms the basis of Catholicism. Why else do you think that when Catholics “pray the rosary”, they say 10 “Hail Marys” to every one “Our Father”?

If Mary was, as the Vatican asserts, “fashioned by the Holy Spirit” and then “kept free from all sin”, then the birth of Jesus is not so special after all. Mary kinda beats Jesus to the punch, wouldn’t you say? But then, stealing the glory from Jesus Christ is really what the Roman Catholic “Mary” was invented to do.

Things you were taught about Mary that are not supported in the Bible:

  • Mary was not sinless: After the birth of Jesus, Mary went to the Temple to make an atonement for her personal sin according to the Law of Moses. Sinless people don’t need to make sacrifices, Jesus never made one, He was one. Vatican teaching answers this by saying that Mary just made that unnecessary sacrifice because she “was humble”. Well, if she was sinless and pretended to have sin and make a phony sacrifice, that’s not humility, that’s a lie. And lying is a sin, so you do the math. “And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord; (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;) And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” Luke 2:22-24 (KJV)
  • Mary never consulted on anything ever: Catholics are taught to “pray to the Blessed Mother” for leading and guidance in their daily lives, yet incredibly the real-life Mary never advised anyone on anything. When she attempted, one time, to give her opinion, Jesus instantly rebuked her. “And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.” John 2:1-4 (KJV)
  • Mary had no voice in the early Church: If Mary was indeed the miracle-working super saint that the Vatican claims she is, like all the apostles actually were, then the time for her to “show her stuff” would have been on the day of Pentecost, right? Think about it, the prophecies of Joel had started to come to pass, the apostles were having dreams, visions, signs, wonders and tongues…but where was Mary? She was with the other women, NOT “above the other women”, and simply one of the saints the Bible records as praying to the Lord. Please note that no one in the Church as it was being formed prayed to her, or even recorded that she even had anything to say. What a shocking contrast to the all-knowing, prayer-answering, floating apparition “Blessed Virgin” of the Catholic Church. “These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” Acts 1:14 (KJV)
  • Mary had other children: If you take away the perpetual virginity of Mary, then the bulk of all Catholic doctrine built around her collapses. And this is exactly what the King James Bible does so you won’t be confused about the matter. Not only that, Mark gives you the NAMES of the four half-brothers of Jesus! These are not “cousins” as the Vatican pathetically asserts, these are others brothers from the SAME mother. Mark also said there were sisters, so that makes a minimum of 6 kids born to Mary and Joseph during the time she was a “perpetual virgin” Hmm…“And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.” Mark 6:2-4 (KJV)
  • Mary’s role as Jesus’ mother ends at the cross: In His final moments on the cross, Jesus makes a very anti-Catholic statement. He tells Mary that she is no longer His mother, as the soon-to-be-risen Saviour is “from everlasting” and needs no mother. Jesus feels so strongly about the transfer that it’s recorded with two of the very rare exclamation points in Scripture. Instead of “promoting” Mary to lead the guide the new Church, He lets us know she has no active role in the Church other than simply being a good role model for other women of like faith. “Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.” John 19:25-27 (KJV)
  • Mary is never called the ‘mother of God’: The Roman Catholic “Hail Mary” prayer is loosely based on the biblical account of the angel Gabriel appearing to her, but with plenty of embellishment thrown in for good measure. She is NEVER called the “mother of God” one time ever, this is a complete invention of the Vatican. In fact, the Bible goes one step further with Gabriel not even referring to her as the “mother of Jesus”, but calls Him the Son of God. “And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:35 (KJV)
  • Mary is not the woman in Revelation 12: The Vatican teaches that Mary is the woman in Revelation 12 with the “12 stars” around her head, but nothing could be further from the truth. The woman in Revelation 12 is the nation of Israel to whom the Saviour was born, and that “woman” flees” into the red rock city of Selah Petra to escape Antichrist in the time of Jacob’s trouble. “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” Revelation 12:1,2 (KJV)

If you are a Roman Catholic reading this now (I did not say ‘Catholic christian’ because there is no such thing) as I was for 30 years, why don’t you use your brain and think for a moment? the Vatican makes these outrageous claims about Mary, but NONE of them are found in the Bible. Where are they found? In the writings of the Catholic Church 1,500 later.

This is why the Roman Catholic Church does not have the Bible as its sole authority, because the Bible is against what they teach as I have shown you above. The King James Bible actively contradicts official Vatican teaching in dozens and dozens of places regarding Mary.

Don’t believe the lies of the Catholic Church:

Did you know that the Catholic Church teaches that the very first apparition of Mary was while she was still alive? Incredible but true, that’s official Vatican teaching.

The real Mary in the Bible was a sweet and sanctified young lady who loved the LORD with all her heart, and accepted the awesome task given her. But she was born in the image of Adam and Eve, as we all were, and acknowledged Jesus as her Saviour. Sinless people have no need of a Saviour, just as well people have no need of a doctor.

“And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.” Luke 1:47 (KJV)

The real Mary in the Bible performed no miracles, there is no record of her advising anyone or anyone seeking her advice. Have you ever wondered about that? None of the astonishing things the Catholic Church attributes to Mary are never once found in the Bible. The real Mary in the Bible would be horrified if she knew what was being taught falsely about her.

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” 1 Timothy 2:5 (KJV)

The real Mary in the Bible was a saved sinner who needed a Saviour just like anyone else who ever lives. Don’t pray to her, don’t ask her advice, worship Jesus instead.

“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” Hebrews 9:28 (KJV)

Franklin Graham Reveals the ‘Real Reason’ Christians Are Being Persecuted

By Samuel Smith , CP Reporter

May 11, 2017 | 8:02 AM

WASHINGTON — Leading evangelist Franklin Graham addressed persecuted Christians from over 130 countries gathered this week for the first-ever World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians and explained the “real reason” why so many people throughout the world are being killed, tortured and imprisoned for their faith in Christ.

Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, gave the keynote address at the BGEA-hosted summit’s opening session Wednesday night at the Mayflower Hotel and welcomed Christians of all denominational and cultural stripes who traveled from all over the world to the summit on behalf of his father, the 98-year-old Billy Graham.

“This conference is not an ecumenical effort to unite Christians through theology or organizational means. This summit intentionally includes people from many denominations and traditions,” the 64-year-old Graham said. “As it has been said, the persecution of one Christian, affects us all.”

“I would like to remind all of us that no one has suffered more than our Lord Jesus Christ,” Graham added. “May the story of the Lord Jesus Christ and His suffering for us be the focus of the primary message of this conference.”

As the the conference aims to allow persecuted Christians from every corner of the globe share their stories of persecution and tribulations, Graham took time from his speech to highlight for an ovation the family members of some of the 20 Coptic Christians beheaded by the Islamic State on a beach in Libya in February 2015. The publicized footage of their beheadings helped millions realize the horror that many of their brothers and sisters are facing around the world at the hands of anti-Christian extremists.

“Tragically, this is not an isolated incident,” Graham asserted. “Today, our Christian brothers and sisters in many countries are facing persecution and martyrdom on an unprecedented scale. In fact, throughout the world the number of Christians facing hostility, persecution and even death is greater than any other time in history.”

Graham stressed that “no part of the Christian family is exempt” from persecution, no matter if they are Protestant, Catholic or Orthodox. He also stressed that “no part of the world is exempt.”

Alaska Hit By 45 Significant Earthquakes Within 24 Hours As The West Coast Wonders If ‘The Big One’ Is Imminent

May 8, 2017 by Michael Snyder

Within the last 24 hours, 45 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater have struck Alaska, and 25 of them were of magnitude 4.0 or greater. The worst one had a magnitude of 6.2, but none of the earthquakes did much damage because none of them hit heavily populated areas. But the reason why all of this shaking is causing so much concern is because the “Ring of Fire” runs right along the southern Alaska coastline, and all of the earthquakes except for one were along the southern coast.

After running along the southern Alaska coastline, the Ring of Fire goes south along the west coast of Canada, the United States and Mexico. What affects one part of a fault network will often trigger something along another portion of the same fault network, and so many living on the west coast are watching the shaking in Alaska with deep concern.

For a long time scientists have acknowledged that a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake is way overdue, and when one finally strikes the devastation that we could see in the Pacific northwest is likely to be off the charts. In fact, some scientists believe that the coming Cascadia subduction zone earthquake could potentially be as high as magnitude 9.0

That 9.0-magnitude quake could trigger a 500 mph wave and put 70,000 people in the “inundation zone” in serious risk. Depending on their location within that zone, Kathryn Schulz writes in her article, people will have between 10 and 30 minutes to evacuate.

If a giant earthquake along the Cascadia subduction zone ever did cause a tsunami of that size, the death and destruction would be unimaginable. Just consider what physicist Michio Kaku told CBS News about such an event…

“In Japan, they practice this. Children know exactly what to do, and there’s an early warning system that we don’t have in Seattle that we do have in Japan,” Kaku said. “There are building codes that are not being enforced. Realize that many buildings are just going to be toppled when this gigantic earthquake, a 9.0, and a tsunami hits the Seattle, Tacoma and Portland area.”

According to the FEMA director responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska, the operating assumption is that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

Further south, scientists are expecting “the Big One” to hit California at literally any time. The experts that have studied these things are warning that the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”, and one recent study claims that a big enough earthquake “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”

The Big One may be overdue to hit California, but scientists near LA have found a new risk for the area during a major earthquake.

They claim that if a major tremor hits the area, it could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly.

The discovery was made after studying the Newport-Inglewood fault, which has long been believed to be one of Southern California’s danger zones.

Let us certainly hope that nothing like that happens any time soon.

But without a doubt the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and we are living at a time when the number of earthquakes just continues to rise.

As I was writing this piece, I came across an article in a major British news source about a researcher that is warning that the gravitational pull caused by certain planets aligning will create ideal conditions for major seismic activity this week…

Frank Hoogerbeets has issued an online “major earthquake warning” amid fears a “big one” is on its way, claiming it could also cause a tsunami.

Mr Hoogerbeets, who is based in the Netherlands, uses a non-scientifically recognised way of predicting earthquakes based on planetary alignments with Earth.

He wrote on his website ditrianum.org: “On May 9 2017, three planetary alignments converge, one of which is Earth-Mercury-Uranus.

“It will be the third time this year that these three planets align; the previous two caused a 6.6 and a 6.9 magnitude earthquake respectively.

“The other alignments around the 9th are Mars-Venus-Saturn and Mars-Sun-Mercury.

“This convergence is also close to Full Moon (May 10).”

Of course we have already seen major seismic activity in Alaska, and we shall see if anything else happens over the next few days.

Another item that caught my attention was a CBS News report that talked about the fact that shark attacks are increasing along the west coast…

Shark attacks are on the rise along the California coast.

“Beach access to the water is closed today because we had a girl get bit by a shark,” said one park official.

Beachgoers were greeted by scary warning after 35-year-old Leeanne Ericson was attacked in knee-deep water north of San Diego last week.

Many believe that sharks become more aggressive when major seismic activity is imminent.

I don’t know if there is any truth to that, but considering everything else that is happening I found that to be quite interesting.

And I was also reminded of a prophecy that indicated that “shark attacks” would be a sign to watch for right before “the Big One” hits California…

I have seen in a vision about six years ago, the plates shifting under the coastline by California. God showed me it was going to massive. The entire coastline from Alaska down to Mexico was going to be destroyed, and a part of California that juts out to the West on the ocean will be completely swept away. God gave me a sign to look for before this happens: shark attacks. Sounds strange, I know, but sharks hunt by vibration, and they will actually be sending the plates shifting, and not their pray. This is what will cause shark attacks to occur in greater frequency.

Once again, let’s hope that nothing like this happens any time soon.

But we shouldn’t stick our heads in the sand either.

As I discuss in my book about the end times, Jesus told us that an increase in seismic activity would be a sign that His return was getting close.

Clearly that is happening, and I am entirely convinced that in the not too distant future we will start seeing natural disasters on a scale that we have never experienced before.

Anne Graham Lotz Encourages Christians to Prepare for the Rapture

Veronica Neffinger | Editor, ChristianHeadlines.com | Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Anne Graham Lotz Encourages Christians to Prepare for the Rapture

Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of Billy Graham, has admonished Christians to be prepared for the rapture which could happen at any time.

In an article on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website titled “Are You Rapture Ready? A Bible Study from Anne Graham Lotz,” Lotz compares being prepared for the rapture to being prepared to go on a trip.

“Preparing to leave takes time, thought and energy,” she writes, and the same should be true of being prepared for the rapture when believers will meet Jesus in person.

“We are told that believers in the last generation will not experience physical death, but will be caught up in what is called the ‘rapture’… the ‘snatching away’… to meet Jesus in the air and be reunited with loved ones who have died in Christ and have gone before us. It will be the trip of a lifetime—a trip that is out of this world. Are you ready?” she asks.

She then goes on to give several verses on what kind of spiritual fruits Christians are to have as we prepare to be ready to meet Christ.

These fruits include faith, love, hope, and holiness.

ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported on a separate message Lotz gave for the National Day of Prayer, which is coming up on May 4. In this message, Lotz urged Americans to repent and turn back to God: “God has promised to hear us, forgive us and heal us on the condition that we pray. Therefore prayer is essential. It is not an option, it is a necessity.”

The Prophecy of Ten Jubilees :: By Daymond Duck

Published on: April 23, 2017 by RRadmin7 Category:Daymond Duck, General Articles

It is not in the Bible, but have you heard about Rabbi Judah ben Samuel’s “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees?”

I saw a reference to it in a video that someone sent to me and decided that I should check out. I discovered that it is either an incredibly accurate prophecy or a false prophecy that was written after the fact.

In the March 2008 edition of Israel Today magazine there was an article about it.

On Nov. 14, 2012, World Net Daily published an Exclusive Report about it.

Jack Van Impe, John Hagee, Perry Stone and “Prophecy in the News” have mentioned it in videos.

Understand that one Jubilee is 50 years.

Anyway, in 1215, Rabbi Judah ben Samuel was allegedly visited by the prophet Elijah who told him, “When the Ottomans (Turks) conquer Jerusalem they (the Turks) will rule over Jerusalem for eight jubilees (8 X 50 = 400 years).”

“Afterward (after the 400 years) Jerusalem will become no-man’s land for one jubilee (50 yrs.), and then in the ninth jubilee (at the end of the ninth jubilee) it (Jerusalem) will once again come back into the possession of the Jewish nation – which would signify the beginning of the Messianic end time.”

This is what history says:

  • In 1217, the Rabbi Judah ben Samuel died.
  • In 1517 (6 Jubilees or 6 X 50 = 300 years later), the Turks captured Jerusalem and the “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees” started.
  • In 1917 (8 Jubilees or 8 X 50 = 400 years later), the British captured Jerusalem and the rule of the Turks ended. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
  • During the next 50 years, Jerusalem was no-man’s land under the control of the League of Nations, the United Nations and Jordan. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
  • In 1967 (1 Jubilee or 1 X 50 = 50 years later), Israel captured East Jerusalem. This was exactly what the alleged prophecy said.
  • In 2017 (1 Jubilee or 1 X 50 = 50 years later), the Ten Jubilees will end (on Sept. 23, 2017), Israel will possess Jerusalem and the Messianic end times will begin.

I Googled “Messianic end times” and learned that it refers to the time when Elijah will appear and the age of peace will begin.

Next, I remembered that God said: “I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:5).

Then, it occurred to me that Rabbi Judah ben Samuel allegedly said this prophecy came from Elijah.

And I don’t know what he will do, but there is the possibility that President Trump will move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem this year (in 2017).

One more thing: On Mar. 14, 2017, it was reported that Israel has budgeted $550,000 a year to research and strengthen the connection between Israel and the Temple Mount.

This means that the Israeli government has now officially recognized that the Temple Mount is a Jewish site (not a Palestinian site).

And it is interesting that this has happened in the 10th Jubilee of Rabbi Juda ben Samuel’s “Prophecy of Ten Jubilees.”

Each person should decide whether to believe this prophecy is true or a fake. But if the world is close to the great and dreadful day of the Lord, a powerful miracle-working prophet could soon appear.

Solar eclipse across U.S. called ‘a sign from God’

‘Blood Moons’ discoverer Mark Biltz says route determines ‘warning to a specific nation’

Published: 14 hours ago

A total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States this summer, an event that hasn’t happened in roughly a century.

Everyone will experience on Aug. 21 at least 60 percent of the sun being covered, and the resulting semidarkness. Those within about a 60-mile wide diagonal line from the Pacific Northwest through South Carolina will see the sky go dark and the accompanying temperature drop.

In some areas of the country, the darkness will last more than two minutes and 30 seconds.

Such wonders of nature largely were feared in older civilizations, and even while the mechanics of orbits crossing can be observed and predicted, they still make many people think of God today.

Pastor Mark Biltz, the man who discovered the “Blood Moons” phenomenon and a Christian who urges careful attention to heavenly signs, suggests it may be something that needs more attention.

Such as a direct warning to the United States.

“From a biblical point of view, a solar eclipse is meant as a sign from God,” Biltz told WND. “In Genesis 1:14, God declared this to be so. It is a sign that is beyond man’s control, something he can’t manipulate. Solar eclipses become biblically and prophetically significant and relevant when man understands their timing according to the biblical calendar and where they happen. Then we look for the patterns.

“As the sun is larger than the moon, the sun represents the nations of the world and the moon represents the nation of Israel, as their calendar months are based on the cycle of the moon while the nations of the world follow the sun for their calendar. When there is a total solar eclipse, it is a warning to a specific nation or nations depending on its path.”

Biltz, author of the new book “God’s Day Timer,” suggests God often uses celestial signs to send direct messages to the nations.

He’ll be discussing his studies and discoveries this fall on the WND Cruise to Alaska Sept. 8-15. He’ll also discuss his other areas of expertise, too, including the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith.

Biltz said: “Just look at the biblical pattern. Many know the story of Jonah and Nineveh from the Bible, but not the historical background events as to what had already transpired, and why they repented. In 765 B.C., a plague broke out in Nineveh where even the king was not able to go out to war, as was custom. This was followed by a civil war and then another plague!

“An archaeological find of cuneiform tablets was found in the 19th century describing events in Nineveh. A famous eclipse mentioned in the tablets was known as the Bur-Sagale eclipse, which is verified by NASA as occurring on June 15, 763 BC. The path of totality was right over Nineveh. God had declared the sun and the moon were for signs, and now the Ninevites saw the wrath of God coming even before Jonah arrived a couple months later. When Jonah arrived, they were ripe for repentance.”

Biltz argued signs of this kind also occurred during the modern era just before cataclysmic events.

“Now fast-forward to another solar eclipse on August 21, but this time in 1914,” he said. “This is the first day of the month of Elul, which begins the month of repentance in ‘God’s Day Timer.’ The first of Elul is when Jonah began prophesying for 40 days. Just before the eclipse, we see on June 28th, 1914, through the month of August, the events of World War 1 begin! The path of totality of the eclipse was over Eastern Europe and the Ottoman Empire or Middle East, including Nineveh again. This was foretelling the destruction of the Ottoman Empire in World War I.”

Biltz suggests such cataclysms may be in store for the United States, especially given the timing of this event.

“Now, this Aug 21, 2017, we have a total solar eclipse going over the United States,” he noted. “This is again at the beginning the month of repentance on the first of Elul! Could God be giving us a warning that we need to repent or judgment will be coming to the United States? The timing couldn’t be clearer!

“We also find seven years later there will be another total solar eclipse running from south to the northeast across the United States on April 8, 2024, with St. Louis in the crosshairs between the two eclipses. April 8 is significant because it is the anniversary of the dedication of Moses tabernacle, when God reasserted Himself into the affairs of men with His glory coming to earth. It just so happens it was also the day Aaron’s two sons, Nadab and Abihu died.”

Biltz says such celestial signs should always be viewed as part of a larger pattern. He has identified another astronomical pattern that will emerge just after the solar eclipse this year.

“Another very significant sign in the heavens is happening right after this year’s total solar eclipse on the first of Elul, beginning the month of repentance,” he noted. “A month later, we find during the Days of Awe from Rosh Hashanah on Tishri 1 and Yom Kippur on Tishri 10, there will be a confirmation of celestial events as described in the Book of Revelation. Revelation 12: 1-2 reads: ‘A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.’

“The woman clothed with the sun is the constellation Virgo and represents the nation of Israel. The 12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Israel. Interestingly, the constellation Leo, the Lion, which is above Virgo, is made up of nine stars. The Lion represents specifically the tribe of Judah. It just so happens this year during the Days of Awe, three planets will join the constellation Leo making up 12 stars. Virgo will be clothed with the sun, and the moon will be under her feet, fulfilling this sign to precise detail!”

Biltz believes these are signs God is reinserting Himself into human history as prophecy becomes fulfilled as never before. Therefore, Biltz says, it is especially important for Christians to “learn from history” and lead a movement for repentance.

“I recommend believers unite in fasting and praying for our nation,” he said. “This eclipse is just before the month of Elul, which is known as the month of repentance before the Fall Feasts. We find this begins at the same time Jesus, Yeshua, went into the wilderness for 40 days after being immersed by John, coming out just before Yom Kippur.

“This begins the same time Moses went back up the mount to make atonement for the sin of the golden calf, coming down on Yom Kippur.

“This is the same time frame Jonah went to Nineveh telling them to repent before judgment would fall on Yom Kippur! So according to ‘God’s Day Timer,’ the United States has 40 days to repent by Yom Kippur, as judgment will be meted out over the following year either for bad or good.”

More Evidence Emerges ‘Planet Nine’ Is Really ‘Planet X’ aka ‘Nibiru’ And If That ‘Conspiracy Theory’ Is True, None Of The Others May Really Matter

Will The Truth About One Of The Most Censored Stories In History Soon Be Revealed?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

December 30th, 1983 Washington Post story claimed ‘mysterious heavenly body’ found in the direction of the Constellation Orion. December 30th, 2016 story from NASA claims: “at aphelion, Planet Nine would be in the general location of the Orion and Taurus constellations.”

ANP recently received an interesting email from a reader which began: ALL news is just a distraction from your real problem, Planet X. Still officially ‘undiscovered’, as we see outlined in the stories and videos below, new evidence has emerged that ‘Planet X’ is indeed out there lurking, rebranded ‘Planet Nine’, and confirming some very old news stories.

With ‘Planet X’ or ‘Nibiru’ still called ‘conspiracy theory’ or ‘fake news’ by the mainstream media, we asked on ANP back on December 2nd of 2016 “Is The Biggest Cover-Up Of All-Time About To Come Crashing Down?” while reminding you of two 1983 stories, one each from the Washington Post and the New York Times. Well the search for ‘Planet X’ goes on, rebranded in this new BBC News story as the search for ‘Planet Nine’.

As ANP reported then, back on January 30th of 1983, the NY Times published a story called “Clues Get Warm In The Search For Planet X” in which they reported: SOMETHING out there beyond the farthest reaches of the known solar system seems to be tugging at Uranus and Neptune. Some gravitational force keeps perturbing the two giant planets, causing irregularities in their orbits. The force suggests a presence far away and unseen, a large object that may be the long-sought Planet X.

Reporting then upon the launching of the ‘Infrared Astronomical Satellite’ that would conduct a wide-ranging survey of nearly all of the sky over the following 6 to 8 months, detecting sources of not only ordinary light but of infrared radiation invisible to the human eye and absorbed by the atmosphere, scientists hoped they’d be able to chart thousands of previously undetected objects in the sky – with a dim hope of finding ‘Planet X’.

Less than a year later on December 30th of 1983, the Washington Post published a story called “Possibly As Large As Jupiter” within which they reported in their first paragraph: A heavenly body possibly as large as the giant planet Jupiter and possibly so close to Earth that it would be part of this solar system has been found in the direction of the constellation Orion by an orbiting telescope aboard the U.S. infrared astronomical satellite.

The same US ‘Infrared Astronomical Satellite’ the NY Times story had mentioned would be ‘searching for Planet X’ had found ‘a heavenly body’ scientists described then as:

So mysterious is the object that astronomers do not know if it is a planet, a giant comet, a nearby “protostar” that never got hot enough to become a star, a distant galaxy so young that it is still in the process of forming its first stars or a galaxy so shrouded in dust that none of the light cast by its stars ever gets through.

“All I can tell you is that we don’t know what it is,” Dr. Gerry Neugebauer, IRAS chief scientist for California’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and director of the Palomar Observatory for the California Institute of Technology, said in an interview.

Found in the direction of the constellation Orion according to the 1983 Washington Post story, talk of ‘Planet X’ soon vanished from the mainstream media and for many, many years until this very day, those who speak of ‘Nibiru’ or ‘Planet X’ online are ridiculed, called ‘tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorists’ and worse by those unable to grasp that there may be another planet out there in our solar system and it just may be ‘Biblical’.

While many years passed without much mention of ‘Planet X’ in the mainstream media, 2016 brought us the hypothetical ‘Planet Nine’, a massive yet still officially undiscovered ‘heavenly body’ that the mainstream media had no choice but to cover after Cal Tech University scientists Konstantin Batygin and Michael E. Brown explained how a massive outer planet would be the likeliest explanation for the similarities in orbits of six distant objects. 


Dubbed ‘Planet Nine’ after the ‘death of Pluto’, scientists explained how ‘Planet Nine’ could be responsible for many of the mysteries our solar system still poses. Space.com published a story on October 19th of 2016 called “Did The Mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ Tilt The Solar System” while Astronomy.com published a story the same day called “Planet Nine May Be Responsible For Tilting The Sun”. On October 23rd of 2016 Forbes ran a story called “Mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ May Be Pulling Our Solar System Out Of Whack”. Were all of those just ‘fake news’ stories?

Interestingly enough, ‘Planet 9’ is also believed to be located in the constellation Orion. Is it just a coincidence that ‘Planet 9’ is in the same general location that the Washington Post reported ‘a mysterious heavenly body’ was in all the way back in 1983, what the NY Times had referred to as ‘Planet X’ before they ALL went silent? Is ‘Planet Nine’ the ‘same beast’ as ‘Planet X’? With a 10,000 to 20,000 year orbit, it would still be in the same general vicinity of the sky now that it was way back in 1983.

In the first video below, videographer Path to Ascension shares with us this new story from ABC in Australia which reports that scientists have invited amateur or professional astronomers within the public to help search the skies for ‘the elusive Planet Nine’. Our videographer points out to us why they call it ‘Planet Nine’ for if they called it ‘Nibiru’ or ‘Planet X’, the unaware masses would get a much different picture of this Biblical planet than if they’re merely searching for information on ‘Planet Nine’.

With an orbit astronomers believe takes 10,000 to 20,000 years to make one trip around the sun, the curious might ask what happened here on our little speck of dust in the universe the last time this beast came around 10,000+ years ago? Putting us back to prior to the floods of Noah, what might a planet that scientists claim may be responsible for tilting our sun or solar system be able to do to the axial tilt of our own planet Earth should it come for a return pass?

As Susan Duclos reported on ANP back on April 7th of 2016, according to Daniel Whitmire, a retired professor astrophysics at the University of Arkansas, ‘Planet Nine’ aka ‘X’ could be responsible for a series of mass extinctions that have already happened upon planet Earth by casting Kuiper Belt objects into the inner solar system. Called ‘perturbing’ by the previously mentioned 1983 Washington Post story, one of the nicknames for ‘Planet Nine’ given by the Cal Tech astronomers who ‘discovered’ it is, quite appropriately, ‘the perturber’.

As we hear in the 2nd video below from Higher Truth Channel, a ‘mysterious phenomenon’ is now creating solar winds so dense, even NASA is unable to censor them. Claiming we’re witnessing a signature of ‘planet X’ that he shows us include abnormalities of the magnetosphere and extra radiation from the sun, the very interesting race to discover ‘Planet Nine’ as outlined in the first video below proves to us NASA scientists know something we don’t know…yet. Investment Watch Blog also recently reported upon this powerful wave of energy that recently struck our planet Earth.

The final video below is a classic for those who haven’t heard it yet as Steve Quayle interviews ‘Planet X’ investigator Bob Fletcher. Fletcher shares with us many different aspects of ‘elite preparation’ for a huge event that he had witnessed in his lifetime including the movement of massive amounts of long term survival food to highly secretive underground locations. Fletcher also discusses millions and millions of dollars of missing money and the many reasons why he believes the 1% have long been preparing for a ‘Biblical’ event.

Scientists Discover Portal Into Parallel Universe. Will it Reveal God’s Hiding Place?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz March 27, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Isaiah 9:1 (The Israel Bible™)

Physicists have discovered a quantum portal into a separate, dark universe, bringing them closer to understanding the first moments of creation. One physicist and man of faith thinks this discovery could offer partial proof of God.

Quantum physicists have speculated that in the early days of the universe, visible particles were formed along with hidden, or dark particles, which, though completely unobservable, would have had to exist in order to make the universe expand at the known rate.

The dark particles are beyond the limits of scientific observation, but their effects on our universe are enormous, so great that physicists believe that roughly 68 percent of the universe is dark energy, with dark matter making up about 27 percent. The rest, everything observable with man-made instruments, adds up to less than five percent of the universe.

Quantum scientists theorized dark matter and dark energy exist in a parallel, though not symmetrical, universe. This separate dark universe is connected to ours via quantum portals.

Scientists at the Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe believe they have discovered one of these portals via a newly discovered subatomic particle called a heavy quark. It is believed that heavy quarks have a “dark charge” which allows them to act as a bridge between the two universes, but as scientists are unable to observe dark particles or dark energy, no more is known about the parallel universe other than the fact of its existence.

Science has long been seen as the enemy of religion, and quantum physics, delving into the secrets of creation, is on the forefront of this battle. Dr. Gerald Schroeder,  a Torah scholar with a PHD in physics from MIT, disagrees, telling Breaking Israel News that he believes the discovery reveals the natural aspect of God.

“Quantum physics has discovered that we can create the universe from nothing, provided we have the forces of nature,” Professor Schroeder said, explaining that this understanding actually supports Biblical creation. “The laws of nature aren’t physical: they act on the physical. They predate the universe.”

Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God. Psalms 90:2

“That is the Biblical definition of God,” Professor Schroeder explained. “Science has discovered Elohim, the natural aspect of God described in Genesis. The one crucial thing we need to add is that which created the universe is still active in the universe.”

In fact, the discovery is evidence that human senses are simply unable to access everything in the world – that some aspects of existence are simply unknowable, and thus divine, he concluded.

“Dark matter is proof that there are dimensions we interact with but we cannot sense. These forces, which are dark to science, are a part of the creative universe. This has brought science to a partial definition of God.

Scientists Warn That The Coming California Megaquake Could Plunge Large Portions Of The State Into The Ocean

By Michael Snyder, on March 22nd, 2017

Over the years, many people have been shown that someday a giant earthquake will cause significant portions of California to fall into the ocean. But up until now, most scientists have disputed the idea that this could ever actually happen. Well, now all of that has changed. According to a brand new study, a megaquake along the west coast “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”. In fact, the researchers that conducted this study say that it is almost certain to happen eventually. Of course they probably don’t believe that such an event is imminent or else they would be moving out of the state like so many other people are.

When I came across news stories about this brand new study I was absolutely astounded. Here is a short excerpt from one of them

The Big One may be overdue to hit California, but scientists near LA have found a new risk for the area during a major earthquake.

They claim that if a major tremor hits the area, it could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly.

The discovery was made after studying the Newport-Inglewood fault, which has long been believed to be one of Southern California’s danger zones.

Could you imagine what such a catastrophe would do to our nation and how many lives would be lost if that were to happen today?

According to the study, a California megaquake would potentially cause some sections of southern California to suddenly drop by as much as 3 feet, and that could result in vast stretches of land “ending up at or below sea level”

In total three quakes over the last 2,000 years on nearby faults made ground just outside Los Angeles city limits sink as much as 3ft.

Today that could result in the area ending up at or below sea level, said Cal State Fullerton professor Matt Kirby, who worked with the paper´s lead author, graduate student Robert Leeper.

Wow.

And we are not talking about something that would happen over a period of weeks or months. According to these scientists, it would be a “very rapid sinking”

“It’s not just a gradual sinking. This is boom — it would drop. It’s very rapid sinking,” Robert Leeper, lead author of a new study published in Nature, carried out with the help of the US Geological Survey, told the LA Times.

So could a substantial portion of southern California someday actually slide into the ocean like we see in the movies?

The scientists that were involved in this study say that the answer is yes

Cal State Fullerton professor Matt Kirby, who worked with the Leeper on the study, said the sinking would occur quickly and likely result in part of California being covered by the sea.

“It’s something that would happen relatively instantaneously,” Prof Kirby said. “Probably today if it happened, you would see seawater rushing in.”

If you follow my work regularly, you know that I have warned that great natural disasters are coming to the United States, and that a California megaquake will be one of those disasters.

Others have been issuing similar warnings for many years. For example, just consider what Dr. Maurice Sklar was shown

I saw a massive earthquake that just seemed to crack off the coast of California. It reminded me of a Saltine cracker that just cracked in two! The great cities along the West coast just fell into the ocean, all the way from Mexico up to Alaska and giant waves flooded inland until much of the West Coast just wasn’t there! It had disappeared into the Pacific Ocean.

Let us hope that we have as much time as possible before anything like this actually happens. But scientists are also telling us that a tremendous amount of seismic tension has built up in southern California, and that this tension could cause a major earthquake at any time. In fact, in my recent article about why people are moving out of California, I included a quote from an ABC Los Angeles story about how researchers are warning that a major earthquake in southern California is “way overdue”…

A recently published study reveals new evidence that a major earthquake is way overdue on a 100 mile stretch of the San Andreas Fault from the Antelope Valley to the Tejon Pass and beyond.

Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey released the results of the years-long study warning a major earthquake could strike soon.

Today, more than 38 million people live in the state of California, and as a population density map of the state shows, much of the population is concentrated along the coastline…

So if large sections of the California coast did end up plunging into the ocean, what would the death toll be?

Would it be in the millions?

And what would such a disaster mean for the rest of the country?

The west coast of the United States sits along “the Ring of Fire”. Roughly encircling the Pacific Ocean, this vast seismic zone contains approximately 75 percent of the active volcanoes in the world and it produces more than 80 percent of all major earthquakes.

In other words, anyone that lives near the Ring of Fire would be foolish to assume that they are immune from massive natural disasters.

In 2011, a major earthquake along the Ring of Fire on the other side of the Pacific Ocean caused a massive tsunami to wash inland in Japan for many, many miles.

If such a thing were to happen in Los Angeles or San Francisco, the death and destruction would be on a scale that would be absolutely unimaginable.

When the big Hollywood film entitled “San Andreas” came out in 2015, a lot of people mocked the idea that the things portrayed in that film could ever happen in real life.

But now scientists are telling us that a megaquake could cause large portions of California to plunge into the ocean and that it is quite likely that this will actually happen someday.

Prominent Rabbi Predicts Earthquakes, Plane Crashes and War, But Israel Safe From Chaos

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz March 6, 2017 , 12:30 pm

“For the Lord GOD will do nothing but He revealeth His counsel unto His servants the prophets.” Amos 3:7 (The Israel Bible™)

As more of Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi’s past predictions come true, a recent sermon, predicting disasters including earthquakes, storms, and plane crashes as a result of divine judgement in response to political events, takes on powerful relevance to today’s times.

In his weekly sermon on Friday, Rabbi Ben Artzi,a prominent Israeli mystical rabbi, warned that these are exceptional times, with dire consequences waiting to happen. The mystical rabbi goes went great detail explaining current events in a new light, describing the cause-and-effect from an end-of-days perspective.

“The times will continue to be difficult and the judgements will continue to grow stronger: floods, volcanic eruptions, fires and heat, evil spirits, storms and earthquakes. Buildings will disappear into the ground – the ground will open up and swallow places in the world. Planes will collide and get lost, ships will get lost and sink.”

His predictions follow a number of similar incidents. Last summer saw a wave of major earthquakes, including a 7.8 magnitude quake in Ecuador that killed over 500 people, and a 7.3 magnitude quake in Japan that killed over 50. Seismologists predict many more, in a phenomenon prophecy connects to the end-of days. And while lost planes are uncommon in these technologically-advanced days, it is nearly three years to the day since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished into thin air.

Rabbi Ben Artzi’s other predictions focused on the Middle East, ranging from impact of Donald Trump’s presidency on Israel to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and radical Islam.

The rabbi had words of reassurance for Trump supporters who believe the president will be good for the Jewish State, asserting, “Trump is doing his real work in secret, in order to fix all the things that were made crooked.

“He doesn’t like to make this things public, and if he hasn’t yet done what he promised, he will.”

One prominent campaign promise that has yet to materialize is the much-discussed moving of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This weekend, however, with little fanfare or coverage in the media, a delegation of two congressmen arrived in Israel to begin scouting locations for the embassy in Jerusalem and putting the move into motion.

Moving on to the possibility of a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, Rabbi Ben Artzi predicted there would be no advances in negotiations, explaining that coexistence runs counter to the spiritual inclination of the Arabs.

“The Palestinians and Hamas don’t want peace,” he pronounced. “It is inscribed in their hearts to hate the Jews and to expel them from Israel. The Palestinians can live anywhere else in the Middle East, but they choose to cope with the difficulties in Israel in order to have a chance to harm the Jews.”

Despite their nefarious goals, however, he continued, the Arab world, even avowed enemies ISIS and Iran, will fail to harm Israel.

In fact, ISIS has an unexpected place in the divine plan – its role is actually to protect Israel from its enemies.

“ISIS will not be wiped out. God does not want it wiped out,” the rabbi said. “ISIS creates complications all over the world in certain countries so that they will leave Israel alone. ISIS and the Muslims hate Christians more than they hate Jews.”

Indeed, despite the combined effort of all the world’s superpowers, including US forces and the Russian military, ISIS has yet to be defeated. Since its founding in 2014, ISIS has committed dozens of terror attacks in Europe and Turkey and killed hundreds of civilians, apart from its genocidal plan to wipe out all non-Muslims within its territories.

As for Iran, Israel has little to fear — but America does, the respected leader said.

“Iran is still working to produce nuclear weapons,” the rabbi said. “America can use the [nuclear] agreement to reveal all the nuclear sites in Iran. But Israel is not in danger from these nuclear weapons. The threat of Iranian nuclear weapons is to America and the rest of the world.”

Rabbi Ben Artzi has made similar predictions in the past that have come true in shocking detail. Last month, Breaking Israel News reported a prediction made by the rabbi that black magic will make a comeback in the world, focused on world leaders like US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Less than two weeks later, opponents of President Trump gathered outside Trump Tower in New York City in an attempt to curse the president and his supporters, sending out a call on social media for others to join in, with detailed instructions on how to perform the black magic.

Another of the rabbi’s predictions that materialized concerned Russia providing Iran with the advanced S-300 anti-aircraft weapons system last summer.

“These missiles, which can shoot down practically any plane, will get a virus in their computers, and go crazy,” Rabbi Ben Artzi reassured his followers in September. “They will blow up inside their bunkers. The launcher will blow up underneath them.”
