You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my

I have a few things against you: There are some among you who hold to the
teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israelites to sin so that

Pergamon or or Pergamum (Ancient Greek: τὸ
Pergamon, or ἡ
Pergamos) was an ancient
Greek city in Aeolis,
currently located 26 kilometres (16 mi) from the Aegean
Sea on a promontory on
the north side of the river Caicus (modern-day Bakırçay).
Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamon are to the north and west
of the modern city of Bergama in Turkey.
authors regarded it as a colony of the Arcadians,
but the various origin stories all belong to legend. The Greek
historians reconstructed a complete history for it due to confusion
with the distant Teuthrania. It
became the capital of the Kingdom
of Pergamon during
period, under the Attalid
dynasty, 281–133 BC. Pergamon is cited in the Book
of Revelation as one
of the seven
churches of Asia.
Xenophon provides the
earliest surviving documentary mention of Pergamon. Captured
by Xenophon in 399 and immediately recaptured by the Persians,
it was severely punished in 362 after a revolt. It did not become
important until Lysimachus,
King of Thrace,
took possession, 301 BC, but soon after his lieutenant Philetaerus enlarged
the town, the Kingdom of Thrace collapsed and it became the capital
of the new kingdom of Pergamon which Philetaerus founded in 281,
beginning the Attalid
dynasty. In 261 he bequeathed his possessions to his nephew Eumenes
I (263-241 BC), who
increased them greatly, leaving as heir his cousin Attalus
I (241-197 BC).
became some of the most loyal supporters of Rome in
the Hellenistic world. Under Attalus
I (241–197 BC), they
allied with Rome against Philip
V of Macedon, during the first and second Macedonian
Wars, and again under Eumenes
II (197–158 BC), against Perseus
of Macedon, during the Third
Macedonian War. For their support against the Seleucids,
rewarded with all the former Seleucid domains in Asia
As a consequence
of its rise to power, the city expanded greatly. Until 188 BC, it
had not grown significantly since its founding by Philetaerus, and
covered circa 21 hectares (52 acres). After this year, a massive new
city wall was constructed, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) long and enclosing
an area of approximately 90 hectares (220 acres).
ruled with intelligence and generosity. Many documents survive
showing how the Attalids supported the growth of towns by sending in
skilled artisans and by remitting taxes. They allowed the Greek
cities in their domains to maintain nominal independence. They sent
gifts to Greek cultural sites like Delphi, Delos,
They defeated the invading Celts.
They remodeled the Acropolis of Pergamon after the Acropolis in
Athens. When Attalus
III (138–133 BC) died
without an heir in 133 BC, he bequeathed the whole of Pergamon to
Rome in order to prevent a civil war.
Not everyone in
Pergamon accepted Rome's rule. Aristonicus,
who claimed to be Attalus' brother as well as the son of Eumenes
II, an earlier king, led a revolt among the lower classes with
the help of Blossius.
The revolt was put down in 129 BC, and Pergamon was divided among
briefly the capital of the Roman province of Asia,
before the capital was transferred to Ephesus.
After a slow
decline, the city was favoured by several imperial initiatives under
Hadrian (117 - 138).
It was granted the title of metropolis and as a result of this an
ambitious building programme was carried out: massive temples, a
stadium, a theatre, a huge forum and an amphitheatre were
constructed. In addition, at the city limits the shrine to Asclepius (the
god of healing) was expanded into a lavish spa.
The Sanctuary of
Asclepius grew in fame and was considered one of the most famous
therapeutic and healing centers of the Roman world. Galen,
after Hippocrates the
most famous physician of antiquity, was born at Pergamon and
received his early training at the Asclepeion.

library on the Acropolis (the ancient Library
of Pergamum) was the second best in the ancient Greek
civilization. Pergamon was also a flourishing center for the
production of parchment,
which had been used in Asia minor long before the rise of the city.
The story about the Pergamene invention of parchment because of
Alexandria's papyrus monopoly is a mere legend. The library at
Pergamom was believed to contain 200,000 volumes, which Mark
Antony later gave to Cleopatra as
a wedding present.
The site is
today easily accessible by the Bergama
Acropolis Gondola from
the base station in northeastern Bergama.
The lower part
of the Acropolis has the following structures:
- the Upper Gymnasium
- the Middle Gymnasium
- the Lower Gymnasium
- the Temple of Demeter
- the Sanctuary of Hera
- the House of Attalus
- the Lower Agora and
- the Gate of Eumenes
south of the Acropolis at (39° 7' 9" N, 27° 9' 56" E), down in the
valley, there was the Sanctuary of Asclepius (also
known as the Asclepium),
the god of healing. The Asclepium was approached along an 820 meter
colonnaded sacred way. In this place people with health problems
could bathe in the water of the sacred spring, and in the patients'
dreams Asclepius would appear in a vision to tell them how to cure
their illness. Archeology has found lots of gifts and dedications
that people would make afterwards, such as small terracotta body
parts, no doubt representing what had been healed. Galen,
the most famous doctor in the ancient Roman Empire and personal
physician of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, worked in the Asclepium for
many years. Notable
extant structures in the Asclepium include:
- the Roman theater
- the North Stoa
- the South Stoa
- the Temple of Asclepius
- a circular treatment center
(sometimes known as the Temple of Telesphorus)
- a healing spring
- an underground passageway
- a library
- the Via Tecta (or the Sacred
Way, which is a colonnaded street leading to the sanctuary) and
- a propylon
notable structure is the great temple of the Egyptian gods Isis and/or Serapis,
known today as the "Red
Basilica" (or Kızıl
Avlu in Turkish),
about one kilometer south of the Acropolis at (39 7' 19" N, 27 11'
1" E). It consists of a main building and two round towers within an
enormous temenos or
sacred area. The temple towers flanking the main building had
courtyards with pools used for ablutions at each end, flanked by
stoas on three sides. At this temple in the year 92 Saint Antipas,
the first bishop
of Pergamum ordained
by John the Apostle, was a victim of an early clash between Serapis
worshipers and Christians. An angry mob is said to have burned Saint
Antipas alive inside a Brazen Bull incense burner, which represented
the bull god Apis. In the
1st century AD, the Christian Church
at Pergamon inside the main building of the Red Basilica was one of

of Revelation was

CROSSING THE RED SEA: EXODUS 14-1-31
Exodus 14 King
James Version (KJV)
14 And the Lord spake
unto Moses, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that
they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over
against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.
3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of
Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.
4 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, that
he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon
all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the Lord.
And they did so.
5 And it was told the king of Egypt that
the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned
against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let
Israel go from serving us?
6 And he made ready his chariot, and took
his people with him:
7 And he took six hundred chosen
chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of
8 And the Lord hardened
the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of
Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.
9 But the Egyptians pursued after them,
all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and
overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.
10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the
children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched
after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out
unto the Lord.
11 And they said unto Moses, Because
there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the
wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of
12 Is not this the word that we did tell
thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it
had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in
13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear
ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord,
which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to
day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.
14 The Lord shall
fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.
15 And the Lord said
unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of
Israel, that they go forward:
16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch
out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall
go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.
17 And I, behold, I will harden the
hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me

19 And the angel of God, which went
before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of
the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:
20 And it came between the camp of the
Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them,
but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other
all the night.
21 And Moses stretched out his hand over
the sea; and the Lord caused
the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea
dry land, and the waters were divided.
22 And the children of Israel went into
the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto
them on their right hand, and on their left.
23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in
after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's horses, his chariots,
and his horsemen.
24 And it came to pass, that in the
morning watch the Lord looked
unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud,
and troubled the host of the Egyptians,
25 And took off their chariot wheels,
that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from
the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth
for them against the Egyptians.
26 And the Lord said
unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come
again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.
27 And Moses stretched forth his hand
over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning
appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew
the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.
28 And the waters returned, and covered
the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into
the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
29 But the children of Israel walked upon
dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on
their right hand, and on their left.
30 Thus the Lord saved
Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the
Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.
31 And Israel saw that great work which
the Lord did
upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord,
and believed the Lord,
and his servant Moses.
JC: They chased after the Israelites to wipe them out
of the Red Sea.
That was Nissan 19.
Nissan 19 is the date of Adolf Hitler's birth, the same day
that Pharoah attempts to destroy the Jews.
Then we had WWI, and after all the reconstruction of WWI, the
Altar of Satan is still there, the next evil comes to Germany.
The Nazis began to rise. It's a drama to watch the
Nazis to move to Berlin where The Altar of Satan is.
In 1930, tht Pergamon Museum opened to the public in Berlin,
In 1930, the Nazis went from beomg the smallest political
party to the second largest. It went to number two and they won the
election and moved to Reichstag.
They started gaining power and within three years Adolf
Hitler became chancellor of Germany. Within four years he became dictator.
Now the baby Adolf is with the altar of Satan in Berlin.
So the Nazis have possession of the throne of Satan.
It's almost like an Indiana Jones movie but this is real.
This is real!
So now its like --- all of Germany is possessed. The
entire nation is going to become possesses.
So, one of the first things Adolf says is that "I want a
platform from which I can speak to Germany and the world.
He appoints his architect Albert Speer to build him a
platform so he can spew his venom.

he says "so much sacrifice, and many privations.

Hail Victory! Hail Victory!
So, when he is speaking and railing, he is on the recreation
of the throne of Satan.
How exact is that?

And what is the enemies goal? The goal is to wipe out
the Jewish people. Just like he tried to put the altar of Zeus on the

The throne of Satan is also an altar. What is an
altar? An altar requires blood.
A table or flat-topped block and the focus for a religeous

An altar requires a sacrifice or something lifted up that

A holocaust is not just a death oe sacrifice, this altar was

THEY STARTED WITH BOOK BURNING
Books and writings deemed "un-German" are burned at the Opernplatz. Berlin,
Germany, May 10, 1933.
— National Archives and
Records Administration, College Park, Md.
"Book burning" refers to the ritual destruction by fire of books or other
written materials. Usually carried out in a public context, the burning of
books represents an element of censorship and usually proceeds from a
cultural, religious, or political opposition to the materials in question.
burning has a long and dark history; and perhaps the most famous of these
events, the burning of books under the Nazi regime on May 10, 1933, had a
precedent in nineteenth century Germany. In 1817, German student
chose the 300th anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses to hold a festival at the
Wartburg, a castle in Thuringia where Luther had sought sanctuary after his
excommunication. The students, demonstrating for a unified country—Germany
was then a patchwork of states—burned anti-national and reactionary texts
and literature which the students viewed
In 1933, Nazi German authorities strove to synchronize professional and
cultural organizations with Nazi
ideology and policy (Gleichschaltung).
In keeping with this endeavor, Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister for Popular
Enlightenment and Propaganda, began an effort to bring German arts and culture in
line with Nazi goals. The government purged cultural organizations of Jewish
and other officials alleged to be politically suspect or who performed or
created art works which Nazi ideologues labeled “degenerate.”
In an effort to synchronize the literary community, Goebbels had a strong
ally in the National Socialist German Students’ Association (Nationalsozialistischer
Deutscher Studentenbund, or
NSDStB). German university students were among the vanguard of the early
Nazi movement, and in the late 1920s, many filled the ranks of various Nazi
formations. The ultra-nationalism and antisemitism of middle-class, secular
student organizations had been intense and vocal for decades. After World
War I, many students opposed the Weimar Republic (1919–1933) and found
in National Socialism a suitable vehicle for their political discontent and
On April 6, 1933, the Nazi German Student Association's Main Office for
Press and Propaganda proclaimed a nationwide “Action against the Un-German
Spirit,” to climax in a literary purge or “cleansing” (Säuberung) by
fire. Local chapters were to supply the press with releases and commissioned
articles, offer blacklists of “un-German” authors, sponsor well-known Nazi
figures to speak at public gatherings, and negotiate for radio broadcast
time. On April 8 the students’ association also drafted its twelve
"theses"—a deliberate evocation of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses: declarations
which described the fundamentals of a "pure" national language and culture.
Placards publicized the theses, which attacked “Jewish intellectualism,”
asserted the need to “purify” the German language and literature, and
demanded that universities be centers of German nationalism. The students
described the “action” as a response to a worldwide Jewish “smear campaign”
against Germany and an affirmation of traditional German values.
In a symbolic act of ominous significance, on May 10, 1933, university
students burned upwards of 25,000 volumes of “un-German” books, presaging an
era of state censorship and control of culture. On the evening of May 10, in
most university towns, right-wing students marched in torchlight parades
“against the un-German spirit.” The scripted rituals called for high Nazi
officials, professors, university rectors, and university student leaders to
address the participants and spectators. At the meeting places, students
threw the pillaged and “unwanted” books onto bonfires with great ceremony,
band-playing, and so-called “fire oaths.” In Berlin, some 40,000 persons
gathered in the Opernplatz to hear Joseph Goebbels deliver a fiery address:
“No to decadence and moral corruption!” Goebbels enjoined the crowd. “Yes to
decency and morality in family and state! I consign to the flames the
writings of Heinrich Mann, Ernst Gläser, Erich Kästner.”
Among the authors whose books student leaders burned that night numbered
well-known socialists such as Bertolt
Brecht and August Bebel; the
founder of the concept of communism, Karl Marx; critical “bourgeois” writers
like the Austrian playwright Arthur Schnitzler, and “corrupting foreign
influences,” among them American author Ernest Hemingway.
The fires also consumed several writings of the 1929 Nobel Prize-winning
German author Thomas Mann, whose support of the Weimar Republic and critique
of fascism raised Nazi ire, and the works of international best-selling
author Erich Maria
Remarque, whose unflinching description of war, All
Quiet on the Western Front, Nazi ideologues vilified as "a literary
betrayal of the soldiers of the World War." Erich Kästner, Heinrich Mann,
and Ernst Gläser, denigrated in Goebbels’ blistering rhetoric, represented
early German literary critics of the Nazi regime, although Heinrich Mann had
gained fame as the author of Professor
Unrat, which appeared in German cinemas in 1930 as “The Blue Angel”;

adults. Other writers included on the blacklists were American authors Jack

Not all book burnings took place on May 10, as the German Student
Association had planned. Some were postponed a few days because of rain.
Others, based on local chapter preference, took place on June 21, the summer
solstice, a traditional date for bonfire celebrations in Germany.
Nonetheless, in 34 university towns across Germany the May 10th “Action
against the Un-German Spirit” was a success, eliciting widespread newspaper
coverage. In some cities, notably Berlin, radio broadcasts brought the
speeches, songs, and ceremonial chants “live” to countless German listeners.
The promotion of "Aryan" culture and the suppression of other forms of
artistic production was yet another Nazi effort to "purify" Germany.
Naturally Jewish authors numbered among the writers whose works were burned,
among them some of the most famous contemporary writers of the day, such as
Max Brod, and Stefan Zweig.
Also among those works burned were the writings of beloved
nineteenth-century German Jewish poet Heinrich Heine, who wrote in his
1820-1821 play Almansor the
famous admonition, “Dort,
wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen": "Where
they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people."
PILE OF BODIES BURNING IN DRESDEN

It is often asked why Jews did not make greater attempts at resistance.
Principally they had no access to arms and were surrounded by native
anti-Semitic populations who collaborated with the Nazis or condoned the
elimination of the Jews. In essence the Jews stood alone against a German war
machine zealously determined to carry out the “final solution.” Moreover, the
Nazis went to great lengths to disguise their ultimate plans. Because of the
German policy of collective reprisal, Jews in the ghettos often hesitated to
resist. This changed when the Germans ordered the final liquidation of the
ghettos, and residents recognized the imminence of their death.
JC: WHAT DOES THE ENEMY DO? IT DESECRATES AND DEFILES!
Back in ancient times, it wasn't just abomination of desolation, it was
converting God's Holy Temple, the altar of sacrifice to an Un-Holy altar.
So what the enemy does when he tries to destroy the Jewish people, because he
knows if he can't destroy them, he loses, so he takes the Holy things that God
gave them - they were saved by the sacrifices on that altar in Jerusalem.
On the altar of sacrifice, they were saved on Yom Kippur - It was a Holy thing.
So, what does, he takes a Holy thing and turns it into an Unholy thing to
destroy the Jewish people.
But the thing is, on the altar of burnt offerings:
The first altar was the Altar
of Burnt Offering (mizbach
30:28), also called the Brasen
39:39), the Outer
Altar (mizbach hachitzona),
theEarthen Altar (mizbach adamah),
the Great Altar (mizbach
hagedola) and the Table of the Lord (Malachi
1:7) This was the outdoor altar and stood in the
Court of the Priests, between the Temple and the Court of Israel, and upon which
the korbanot (animal
and bird sacrifices) were offered. The blood of the sacrifices would be thrown
against the base of the altar (Exodus
4:18), and portions of the sacrifices would be burned
on top of it (precisely which portions would depend upon the type of sacrifice).
Also consumed at the altar would be some of the meat
offerings, and the drink
offerings (libations of
wine) were poured out here. All sacrifices had to be "seasoned with salt" (Leviticus
Three separate piles of wood burned atop the altar. The
largest of these was where all the portions of the sacrifices were burned; the
second fire provided the coals for the Altar of Incense within the sanctuary,
and the third was the "perpetual
fire" which constantly burned on the altar. Nothing
was placed on it, and no coals were taken from it. It existed solely to fulfill
the commandment that there be a perpetual fire, as the Torah states: "And a fire
shall burn there on the altar constantly; it shall not be extinguished" (Leviticus
6:12-13). There was no commandment regarding the type
of wood to be used; however, the Rabbis forbade the use of olive wood and grape
vine, as these would not burn well and needed to be conserved because of their
commercial value to the people. Three particular types of wood were preferred:
fig, walnut, and pine. These woods all burn well, and were therefore preferable.
The choicest branches of fig were used for the second fire, the one from which
coals were taken for the Altar of Incense. If all of the lamps of the menorah went
out, they would have to be rekindled from the fire on the Altar of Burnt
A large pile of ashes was formed in the center of the
altar from the remnants of the three fires. A portion
of the ashes from
this pile were required to be removed every morning before the first sacrifice
of the day. In the Second Temple, the priest who fulfilled this mitzvah (commandment)
was chosen by lottery every
morning. He would vest in his priestly vestments and wash
his hands before approaching the altar. The ashes were
taken up in a silver shovel and set on the ground to the east of the altar at
what was called, "the place of the ashes." Then he would change from his
priestly vetments into ordinary clothing and remove the ashes to a clean place
outside the camp (Leviticus
6:10-11, Cf., 1:16).
27:3 the various utensils used with the altar are
enumerated. They were made of brass. (Comp. 1 Samuel
16:6-7). The altar could not be carved using utensils
made of iron or of bronze (Exodus
20:25), nor were any allowed on or near it, because
iron and bronze were used for implements of war. The Altar and its utensils were
considered to be sacred, and the priests had to vest and wash their hands before
touching them—even so much as removing the ashes from the altar.
According to the Bible, the fire on the altar was lit
directly by the hand of God and was not permitted to go out (Leviticus
6:12-13). No strange fire could be placed upon the
altar. The burnt offerings would remain on the altar throughout the night before
they could be removed (Leviticus
A second lottery would be made to determine which priests would fulfill the
various duties involved in offering the sacrifice and preparing the menorah and
the Golden Altar.

What happened to the Jewish people?
They were led like lambs to the slaughter of sacrifice.
What were they led in? Cattle cars!
WWII CATTLE CARS
The Jews were led to the sacrifice in the cattle cars like
cattle, lambs and goats, the way sacrifice that was offered up on Yom Kippur!
What did the Greeks call that Altar of Zeus? In Greek
the word is Caudos which means burnt! A complete burnt offering was called
Holos which means 'whole, complete!
So, instead of calling it Holos cautaus, they called it
It was the altar of Holocaust!
The throne of Satan, the throne of Zeus was called the altar
They were standing on top of a recreation of Satan's throne
already was called the altar of holocaust there.
Satan is into destruction - desecration
On the Altar of Zeus, where is lifted up holocaust in ancient
times, these offerings were done at night and hissen away, as the holocaust was
hidden as it was being done.
In the Bible itself, it says,
Leviticus 5:10 "And he shall offer the second for a
burnt offering, according to the manner ...
but in the Septuagint, the verse says in the Greek, offer the
second for a holocaust.
Leviticus 4:29 He shall slay the sin offering in the
place of the Holocaust.
JC: It looks like the enemy is taking Holy things meant
for salvation and turning them for evil against it.
2 Chronicles 29:7 They did not offer burnt offerings in the Holy place.
JC: There is a place in Europe called The Holy
Place. Os wiecem in Germany which means The Holy Place. In German
that same word means Auschwitz.
Auchwitz means The Holy Place.
Translating that same verse from Leviticus `4:13 to German -
it says: They shall offer the holocaust in Aucgwitz. (The Holy Place)
The enemy was behind it all. The enemy is real.
And not only the holocaust because that wasn't the only destruction, but linked
to the holocaust is the greatest destruction that ever covered theearth so far.
And that was the Second World War. The two happened
He attacked the Jews first - also the Greek, then calamity
comes to the Jews first. The enemy knows if he can attack the Jews, he can
attack the world.
If he can get the Jews out of the way, he's gor the world.
So that's why we always have to bless Israel.
Who was offered up first? The Jewish people! Then
the people of all nations.
How many were killed in WWII? Over 60 million people.
Adolf Hitler ordered the slaughter of around 6 million Jewish
people. They were the tithe. The tenth! The fruit! The first
And what does it sayin the Bible? It actually says that
the Jewish people are the first fruits of God for salvation, for blessings, but
now the enemy turns it on it's head.
In the end, Hitler brings his own destruction. When you
serve the enemy, you bring your own destruction.
Hitler killed himself by gunshot on April 30, 1945. He
had given orders that his body be burned and became thr last burnt offering.

EVEN Jonathan Cahn didn't know about this video:
NOTE: WATCH THE BEGINNING OF THIS VIDEO OF PRESIDENT
JC: Why has the enemy warred against the Altar of God since the beginning?
From the first abomination of desolation to the Antichrist, he will.
Why? Because the Altar of God, the alttar of the last
offering was the sign, the shadow of the cross of the Messiah.
He is so against it, because that was the foreshadow of the
cross of Messiah!
The offering of Messiah is the defeat of the enemy. He
hates the cross. But it takes everything and tries to twist it.
The first foreshadow of that Altar is in Genesis 22.
22 Some time later God tested Abraham.
He said to him, “Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he
2 Then God said, “Take your son,
your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice
him there as a burnt offering on
a mountain I will show you.”
3 Early the next morning Abraham
got up and loaded his donkey. He took with him two of his servants and his son
Isaac. When he had cut enough wood for the burnt offering, he set out for the
place God had told him about. 4 On
the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. 5 He
said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over
there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.”
6 Abraham took the wood for the burnt
offering and placed it on his son Isaac,and
he himself carried the fire and the knife. As
the two of them went on together, 7 Isaac
spoke up and said to his father Abraham, “Father?”
“Yes, my son?” Abraham replied.
“The fire and wood are here,” Isaac said, “but where is the lamb for
the burnt offering?”
8 Abraham answered, “God himself will provide the
the burnt offering, my son.” And the two of them went on together.
9 When they reached the place God had told
him about, Abraham
built an altarthere
and arranged the wood on
it. He bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on
top of the wood. 10 Then
he reached out his hand and took the knife to
slay his son. 11 But
the angel of the Lord called
out to him from heaven,“Abraham!
“Here I am,” he
12 “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said.
“Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because
you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”
13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket
he saw a ram caught
by its horns. He
went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his
son. 14 So
Abraham called that
place The Lord Will
Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it
will be provided.”
15 The angel of the Lord called
to Abraham from heaven a
second time 16 and
said, “I swear by myself, declares
that because you have done this and have not withheld your son, your only son, 17 I
will surely bless you and
make your descendants as
numerous as the stars in the sky and
as the sand on the seashore. Your
descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and
through your offspring all
nations on earth will be blessed,because
you have obeyed me.”
19 Then Abraham returned to his servants, and
they set off together for Beersheba. And
Abraham stayed in Beersheba.
20 Some time later Abraham was told, “Milkah
is also a mother; she has borne sons to your brother Nahor: 21 Uz the
firstborn, Buz his
brother, Kemuel (the father of Aram), 22 Kesed,
Hazo, Pildash, Jidlaph and Bethuel.” 23 Bethuel
became the father of Rebekah. Milkah
bore these eight sons to Abraham’s brother Nahor. 24 His
name was Reumah, also had sons: Tebah, Gaham, Tahash and Maakah.
John 1:29 Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sins of the world.
JC: They've been vulnerable. They've been vulnerable to everything
the enemy has done. They've been like sheep without a shepherd.

JC: Either the Messiah takes your hell or you bear it.
For 2,000 years, the enemy has been fuurious to destroy them.
NOTE: While I'm typing this, Aljazeera news is showing scenes from
religeous wars in Kosovo and Nigeria, where thousands of men and boys were
systematically butchered and the United States was forced to go over in
airplanes and bomb the enemy because they wouldn't stop slaughtering people for
being a different religion.
JC: The Bible likens the enemy to a wolf among the lambs.
The Jewish people had no lamb. The people are spoken of
as sheep without a shepherd.
John 10:12 The hired hand is not the shepherd
and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the
sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it.
JC: ADOLF - the day he was born - means "the wolf"
Adolf, from the German name Aodolwolf which means 'noble wolf'.
This just reveals such a little bit - there is so much.
It shows how real the enemy is. He's real!
JB. (BAKKER) This is so scary. We need to wake up because ...
America - I'm scared to say this ... It is happening. I'm scared we are
going to start taking the crosses out of the National cemeteries.
But the cross is so hated in our country. Even in the
army, they are taking the crosses off the tents for the Chaplains. In some
places, you can't even use the Bible, because it offends the Arab world.
On 9/11, the only sign of protection remaining was the dross.
And the cross still stands.
Every sin, every temptation is a war from the enemy against
your soul. Treat it as prison. Every sin, every temptation - don't
play with it because it is there to destroy you.
The other thing is, in that it tells you how important the
cross is. Don't get into a doctrine war, this doctrine, or that doctrine,
your own prosperity.
It's the cross! It's the cross!
The enemy hates it because it is so powerful. The blood
of Jesus is stronger than the enemy, than the world of flesh - the Devil.
We must stay with it and that's the power of it. You
can't play with the cross. That is our bridge to Salvation.
JC: We have to stay with the cross. The enemy launched his war
against the Jewish people and has tried for 4,000 years. He's used Egypt,
Assyria, Babylon, Rome, Hitler, and all these things, but the ultimate story is
that Egypt is gone, Assyria is gone, Hitler is gone, the terrorists will be
gone, but the Nation of Israel lives because the God of Israel lives, because
the Messiah still lives.
Our God is stronger and we win in the end. If we stay with God, we
will win as well.
