Stay Away from Indoctrination and Dogma

"As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;" (Ephesians 4:14 NASB).

Jesus Christ's Rule is Revealed in the Old Testament

Often people think of Jesus Christ in New Testament terms, and forget, or do Not realize that the prophecy of Jesus was foretold starting in the book of Genesis at the fall of mankind and the original sin of disobedience to God.

Some organized religions, like Roman Catholicism, have tried to confuse the Truth, by adulterating Genesis 3:14-15 --- to blatantly twist the Truth and have people believe that God's Word is speaking about the Virgin Mary crushing the head of the serpent.

The serpent under the foot of the Virgin Mary is an adulteration of Scripture
Regardless of whether or Not you presently believe that God is Not talking about the Virgin Mary in Genesis 3:15, it should at least be clear to you that God is talking about "it," the offspring of the woman bruising the head of the serpent.

Genesis 3:14-15
King James Version (KJV)

14 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:

15 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 Roman Catholic religion and many other Antichrist religions display Jesus as a baby, and the image of Jesus' mother, Mary, as an adult and divine with a crown and often a halo---representing the sun and Mother-child-cult, Isis/Horus; Venus/Cupid, etc., etc., etc. worship.

Christ's ministry began when he was around 30, not as a baby! So the graven images of the Virgin Mary and baby Jesus Not only are against Exodus 20:1-4, they are a misrepresentation of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who became human like us for our benefit (John 1:1; John 1:14; cf. 1 Corinthians 15).

Many ancient and Neo-pagan religions perpetuate the legend of Semiramis (wife of Nimrod, the builder of the Tower of Babel) and Tammuz---continuing the Mother-child cult religion of Pagan Babylon (Ezekiel 8:13-15; cf. Revelation 17).

Vatican Hill (Latin, Mons Vaticanus) is a hill located across the Tiber river from the traditional seven hills of Rome. It is the location of St. Peter's Basilica.

The Roman Catholic Church changed the statue of Venus in ancient Rome to the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for its headquarters was on one of the traditional seven hills of Rome called 'Vaticanus', the place of the diving serpent where the Satanic temple of Janus stood. In ancient Roman religion, Vagitanus or Vaticanus was one of a number of childbirth deities who influenced or guided some aspect of parturition, in this instance the newborn's crying.

Ezekiel 8:13-15
New Living Translation (NLT)

13 Then the Lord added, “Come, and I will show you even more detestable sins than these!”

14 He brought me to the north gate of the Lord’s Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz. 15 “Have you seen this?” he asked. “But I will show you even more detestable sins than these!”

These mourning ceremonies for the god Tammuz were observed even at the very door of the Temple in Jerusalem in the vision the Israelite prophet Ezekiel was given
, which serves as a Biblical prophecy which expresses God's message at His people's apostate worship of idols.

In Babylonia, the month Tammuz, was established in honor of the eponymous god Tammuz, who originated as a Sumerian shepherd-god, Dumuzid or Dumuzi, the consort of Inanna and, in his Akkadian form, the parallel consort of Ishtar.

Beginning with the summer solstice came a time of mourning in the Ancient Near East, as in the Aegean: the Babylonians marked the decline in daylight hours and the onset of killing summer heat and drought with a six-day "funeral" for the god. In cult practice, the dead Tammuz was widely mourned in the Ancient Near East. Locations associated in antiquity with the site of his death include both Harran and Byblos, among others.

The book of Psalm, chapter 2, foretold how Jesus' Second Coming in the future, will put an end to all human government, and He will rule the nations with an iron rod.

Psalm 2
New Living Translation (NLT)

1 Why are the nations so angry?
    Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle;
    the rulers plot together
against the Lord
    and against his anointed one.
3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry,
    “and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
4 But the one who rules in heaven laughs.
    The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger he rebukes them,
    terrifying them with his fierce fury.
6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed my chosen king on the throne
    in Jerusalem,[a] on my holy mountain.”
7 The king proclaims the Lord’s decree:
“The Lord said to me, ‘You are my son.[b]
    Today I have become your Father.[c]
8 Only ask, and I will give you the nations as your inheritance,
    the whole earth as your possession.
9 You will break[d] them with an iron rod
    and smash them like clay pots.’”
10 Now then, you kings, act wisely!
    Be warned, you rulers of the earth!
11 Serve the Lord with reverent fear,
    and rejoice with trembling.
12 Submit to God’s royal son,[e] or he will become angry,
    and you will be destroyed in the midst of all your activities—
for his anger flares up in an instant.
    But what joy for all who take refuge in him!

2:6 Hebrew on Zion.
2:7a Or Son; also in 2:12.
2:7b Or Today I reveal you as my son.
2:9 Greek version reads rule. Compare Rev 2:27.
2:12 The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.

Important to note is that when the American Philosophical Society wanted to place a statue of Benjamin Franklin in the empty niche of their library building, Franklin stipulated one thing: he be dressed in a toga with an iron scepter in his hand just like Robespierre (1758–94) on the Day of the Supreme Being festival.

It is deeply depressing that so many AntiChrist religions and secular organizations wish to adulterate and try to destroy the Word of God.

If you develop a personal relationship with God's Word, the Holy Bible, apart from organized religion, you will Not be confused and led away with deception by Antichrist religions.

The book of Isaiah, chapter 9, foretold of Jesus Christ's birth, and a few of His most prominent titles in addition to the Word of God (John 1:1; John 1:14; Revelation 19:13)---as well as Jesus' eternal rule as the Prince of Peace...

Isaiah 9:6-7
King James Version (KJV)

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The book of Proverbs, describes Jesus as Wisdom, who existed before the world was formed, and who was the architect at God's side during Creation. I love to read Proverbs 8:22-36 over and over to remind myself how the Holy Scriptures of the Old Testament speak of Jesus Christ.

Therefore my brothers and sisters, I urge you to read and study both the Old and New Testament to gain a better understanding of who God is and how He planned to send His Son, Jesus Christ to restore His people to Himself, after mankind chose to disobey God.


God has made it very easy for us to thank Him, honor His statutes, and praise and worship Him, by accepting His Only Son, Jesus Christ, as the Savior and Redeemer of the world.

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer:  "Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability. Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin. Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection. I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!"

If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a religion or denomination). Please get into a Bible-based church, where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the Tradition(s) of men.

I wish to inspire you to get to know Jesus Christ personally through reading the Old Testament Scriptures about Him, and then the New Testament to correlate the fulfillment of God's prophecy about His Son. Then pray, reflect and meditate upon these Holy Scriptures instead of the manmade Traditions, rituals, doctrines and dogma that has adulterated God's Truth.

Isaiah 53:3-5 (NKJV)
3 He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.

Pray, study (2 Timothy 2:15) and meditate upon God's Word, and trust that the Holy Spirit will guide you (John 14:16-24), and that Jesus' promise never to abandon us is the Truth.

Godspeed, love and Truth,

Brother David Johnson, XU
