Part Three Notes: Chaldean Number meanings of Ashtaroth’s Zodiac position

By B W Melvin

Electronic Copyright 2019

 

 

The Zodiac Position is: 25-29 degrees of Taurus and 10 - 20 degrees of Capricorn – Let’s first explore the constellation Capricorn, which in ancient Sumerian was associated with the planet Saturn (Enlil), and also related to the Mesopotamian god Enki = called the goatfish…

 

Ashtaroth’s Zodiac position

 

What I am about to share is based on the use of Chaldean Numerology and how the numeric meaning from Ashtaroth’s Zodiac positions shows what this entity is up too, its task, and its goal. The ancient Chaldean system is like reading enemy propaganda boasting of their glory and renown.  

 

What I am going to share is based solely on my research compiled from various sources that share common meanings of Chaldean numbers. In that system, simple mathematical reduction formulas add to the numeric meanings which corresponds to a subject, a context, which concerns Ashtoreth for us.

 

These deduction formulas come by adding numbers used together such as 10+20 to find the sum, 30. The sum total of 30 is reduced further to its lowest number form like this: 3+0=3. So, you end up with these number, 10,20,30 and 3. You also can reduce 10 to 1+0=1 and come up with 1,2,3.

 

Next you look at the number meaning based on the subject and the storyline seen in the celestial bodies (planets, stars) that the numbers also represent. Numeric meanings are set up like our own dictionaries and contain several meanings for one word. The Subject and context pinpoint the meaning and a story is revealed.

 

The Chaldean numeric system is used in occult world along with the Kabbalah and Pythagorean systems. Therefore, to research to find the closest meaning involves noting similar meanings and stick with these. I do not advise doing this because people go number happy and can get stupid.

 

To shorten things a bit for you, here is a synopsis of the storyline. It amazingly follows the bible. 


At some point, there was a rebellion in the Heaven to overthrow God’s throne as Revelation 12:1-12 reveals. It failed and a third of the rebellious angels were cast to earth in what appears in a progression till that 1/3rd number was reached by the time of Genesis Chapter Six when the fallen angels attempted to corrupt the human gene pool in order to prevent the words God spoke in Genesis 2:15 from happening.  


The rebellious Watchers were defeated by the flood in the time of Noah and suffered great set back. At least 200 of the leading fallen watchers were sent to the abyss for 70 generations for this till they will be released to fight the final battle in their quest to defeat and overthrow God's throne. (5)


In the book of Jubilees it tells how 10 percent of the 200 leaders were allowed to remain around earth. There were seven top leaders of the rebellion and of these, the devil and two of these top leaders were allowed to remain. The other four were sent to the abyss and can influence people from there. (6)

 

Ashtaroth was one of those allowed to remain, the second, third, or fourth in command took over the roles of the 4 imprisoned watchers. With this background, comes the story line involving the planned rise of the final antichrist by creating chaos so new golden age, a new world order arises to dethrone God by using humanity as pawns.


The remaining fallen angels are relentless in their plans to bring forth their very messiah to humanity in order to restore their antediluvian golden age. This failed when Jesus Christ came and defeated death and the enemy on the cross and by the resurrection when he crushed the head of the serpent as Gen 3:15 states.


From here this is where Ashtoreth’s/Ishtar’s celestial Zodiac position numbers adds more details to this storyline by examining their numeric meaning.

 

Celestial Identifiers

 

The numeric meaning and formula of 10 - 20 degrees also identifies fallen angels who go by the names of old pagan (false) gods. By this, we discover their plan and story line. For simplicity here it is:

 

Ashtoreth’s Zodiac position of 10 – 20 degrees of Capricorn uses the formula 10+20=30 finding the sum of 30. These numbers are associated with planets and stars which identify fallen angels because the ancient religions identified their gods that way. 

 

For example, the Number 10 is associated with the planet Jupiter (who is Anu, aka Zeus, aka Satan) and Babylonian dragon deity, Marduk. The number 20 is associated with the sun deity - Utu also known as Shammash and also known in Greek as Apollo and known in the bible as Apollyon in Revelation 9:11. The Number 30 is the moon deity known as Nanna/Sin…

 

Thus, from Jupiter (10) comes a work to bring forth a son – Nergal/Apollo aka Tammuz (20) out of the abyss to rule the world by the help provided by the Moon false god, Nanna (30), who is related to Ishtar/big Jezebel (Venus) along with the remaining two of  the triple goddesses.

 

The task of Ishtar/big Jezebel is to create the means and climate whereby this leader can come forth out of the abyss. This is seen in the reduced sum 3 found by 3+0=3. The word meaning of 3 identifies the role and works of Ashtoreth/Ishtar.  

 

So, you have the sun, moon, and star symbols used in many secret societies such as in the pillars of Free Masonry. They are united to bring forth a one world governmental leader – the son of the Dragon. By use of the Sun by wisdom and by Moon’s severity to bring forth chaos into the world by Venus. So, this leader can arise from the pit – the son of the Dragon who comes from below by means of Ashtoreth’s influence governed from above. (7)

 

This is where the adding and reduction of the numbers used, and their number meanings come into focus next derived this way: 10+20=30 reduced 3+0= back to the number 3.

 

Basic meanings of 10, 20, 30, and 3 in the Chaldean number system:

 

10 denotes a "Wheel of Fortune" that promotes honor, faith, in a self-confident hubris of one's rise and fall so that one will be either be known for their renown of good or evil governed by their actions of their desires. This number has a root meaning that adds to the meaning of 10 of being fortunate that one's plans are carried out by playing the game, playing the or ‘a’ system against itself. (Jupiter, the dragon, Satan is a master of this).

 

20 Means "the Awakening" and "the Judgement". Its symbol is of a winged angel sounding a trumpet call to action, while from below a man, a woman, and a child are seen rising from a tomb/ abyss with their hands clasped in prayer responding to the call to action by contacted fallen angels, etc.

 

In the occult world back then and now, this number is a call to action and duty, for a far greater cause leading to momentous future event so all people awaken and ally themselves to it. Or face harsh judgment against them that oppose by delaying, thwarting, hindering anyone against this planned awakening. Note: One of Utu aka Apollo roles is the one who brings forth judgment.

 

30 Means the use of thoughtful deduction, retrospection, and mental superiority over others. It willingly surrenders everything to the cause, duty. In this it represents an all-powerful mental state that is indifferent to the will or desires of the person under its influences or those its attacks. This is related to one of the charter traits of the false moon deity Nanna.

 

3 Means manifestations and expansion to create, manifests Ideas, to increase entrepreneurship /commerce, and forms of entertainment to brainwash/propagandize by one’s innate appreciation of pleasure, romance, art, and beauty. Justifies allowing all things as possible (do as thou will sum up the idea). It is extensive, sociable, dramatic, communicative, diversified, and creative. In Tarot cards this one known as the Empress of Divine Activity.

 

Think of the Whore of Babylon, Ashtoreth, as the Empress of divine activity. The activity that Ashtoreth does on earth to humanity is mention in the numeric meaning of 3.

 

Let's look as the meaning of these numbers and discover Ashtoreth tasks

 

Add to storyline note in the beginning to Ashtaroth’s Zodiac positions number meanings and, well, see for yourself. Ashtaroth task is to keep the

 

10 "Wheel of Fortune"  favorable so one's plans are carried out by playing the system against itself  by being a part of the system - in order to bring forth an…

 

20 "Awakening” from below for "Judgement” above by a call to action that comes from angels sounding trumpets to awaken a man, a woman, for the need of a child to arise from the abyss below to fulfill the devil’s cause and war against those that oppose the cause. (this is to be carried out…)

 

30 By the use of thoughtful deduction, retrospection, to gain mental superiority over others to force submission and surrender all for 'the cause' by being totally indifferent to  those who follow it and those its attacks. (This is brought forth…)

 

3 by manifesting, expanding, creating ideas, to increase entrepreneurship /commerce, and forms of entertainment to brainwash/propagandize by one’s innate appreciation of pleasure, romance, art, beauty, self-glory to war to win and control all brought forth by the Empress of Divine Activity

 

Please note - In the Book of Revelation we see the beast and false prophet arise from the abyss and thus are the man and child (devil’s messiah) mentioned in the meaning the number 20’s. The woman represents as best as can derive, Ninshursag aka Azazel - the old crone of triple goddess worship. 


Also note that The Whore of Babylon, aka Ishtar/Ashtoreth took over the old crone’s task to bring this all about on earth due to Ninshursag - Azazel's imprisonment. 

 

I know this will sound strange but starting around 2008 to 2018 strange trumpet sounds were heard worldwide and since then the explosion in gene splicing, AI development, and technology is simply astounding. Governmental leaders are openly pushing for one world government. Add to this, the rise of paganism world-wide.

 

I think you get the idea of the occult awakening of the last days as the numbers reveals Ashtoreth’s role to supply the means, plan, wealth, power, idea, knowledge to bring forth the beast and false prophet from the abyss. This is why occultist hold this one so dear.

 

25-29 degrees of Taurus - 25+29=54

 

Here 'is' the bottom line meanings of 25, 29 and 54:

 

25. denotes gaining strength through experience of trials, testing’s, strife, early on in life which lesson learned prove favorable late in life or a later time.


Note: In book of Rev chapter 12 the devil and his followers rebelled against God and were banished to earth. This, in their eyes, this was used to gain experience, wisdom, knowledge to use to their advantage in the later times in their attempt to overthrow God’s throne.

 

29. denotes the use of uncertainties, treachery, unreliableness, disunity, and deception of others and warns against this happening in the future within a group and/or using these traits against a foe to destroy their future gains of winning. 

 

What is learned is used to create uncertainty, chaos, treachery, make folks unreliable, sow disunity, and use deception in their foe’s camp. This reminds of 2 Tim 3:1-9 and the prophetic teaching concerning the last days.

 

54. Denotes acquiring and using material security to go all out to achieve goals, to win. Also denotes - the acquiring and heaping up of wealth, power, inheritance correctly all in unity within a group with united focus to attain a group’s united goal, endgame.

 

The other part of the meaning of 54 is this: If any setbacks occur then all ‘the team players’ must unite their specialist abilities in promoting change/adapt in order regain any lost ground. If unity is broken all the wealth, power, influence,  is lost and squandered away and the goal delayed.  


This means, they stick together and in lock step with each other. Support each other lies, pool resources for their new golden age to dawn.  

So, what I can best fit together using this method and applying context to Ashtoreth from the Zodiac degree numbers and meanings is this:

 

25 – in time past the fallen watchers fell from heaven and are attempting to gain strength by the experience of trials, testing’s, of the strife/war of their past rebellion and use this experience to reach a favorable outcome of dethroning God and taking over. (This is now headed up by Ashtoreth who)

 

29 –learned from past (Genesis 6) to create uncertainty, chaos, treachery, make humanity unreliable to each other, sow disunity, and use of deception in their foe’s camp better than they did before with oneness of purpose to reach the goal of dethroning God and taking over. (This is accomplished)

 

54 – by acquiring wealth and power as the material security needed to go all out to achieve the goal to win. One wins human agents over by this to unite them with the cause/goal by having groups combine wealth and resources to reach the goal by heaping it up on them by teaching them dark arts to connect with them – give them power and wealth to take over the world and so they can war against God. If any ground is lost, or set-backs occur reach the goal, then all ‘the team players’ must unite lockstep their specialist abilities in promoting change, adapt, in order regain any lost ground.

 

Next reduce the sum 54 as 5+4=9

 

This is done thru - 5 - communications, travel writing, promoting Eros, freedom, change that promotes new adventures, adding a vital life force to life by an irresistible magnetism guided by a – Divine Voice – (i.e. communication with fallen watchers)

 

By - 4 - divine overcoming by building unity, being detailed, dependable, and by constructing consciousness by the use of laws, systems, and order, discipline on earth so the emperor/world leader can overcome God’s order.

 

This is done by selling/fooling humanity by appeals – 9 - Humanitarian love, compassion, patience, universality, all are one, tolerance, selfless service (social justice), by divine light (illumination) from the fallen ones.


Now I ask you, do you see these things taking shape today?

 

Using further reduction methods, we arrive at these numbers and their meanings: 7,11, 18, and 9

 

How - 2+5=7 and 2+9=11 and 7+11=18 and 1+8=9

 

Meanings

 

7.Metaphysical mysteries, spiritual mysteries, mediator (as in sorcery, divination), investigator, seeker, philosophies, all to elevate consciousness (as in intellectual elitism). to achieve divine victory

 

Context of victory refers dethroning God and taking over and along with this comes a warning…

 

11.Is an ominous number to occultists. It gives warning of hidden dangers, trial, and treachery from others. It has a symbol of a "Clenched Hand", and "a Lion Muzzled", and of a person who will have great difficulties to contend against.

 

Please note: The contextual warning 'of others' refers to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Commander of the Lord’s Armies see Rev 19 - and those in the Church who are faithful to God. The message is clear, Ashtaroth’s task is hinder the Lord’s return by creating the following in God's people and all of humanity... 

 

18. denotes: bitter quarrels, even family ones, war, social upheavals, revolutions; and in making money and gain prominence thorough all types of warfare and outright war. This number also warns of treachery, deception by others, and of natural disasters such as storms, floods, fires and explosions.

 

Please Note – Read Mathew 24, Luke 17 and Luke 21 and do you see the same issues? And this is accomplished on earth by pushing forth described by the number 9…

 

By pushing on humanity – 9 denotes: Humanitarianism, ideas of love and compassion, patience, universality (all are one), tolerance, selfless service (social justice ideas), and ending oppression toward achieving divine light for all (humanity).

 

Do you see these ideas today?

 

Now put it together with…

 

10 "Wheel of Fortune" favor and hubris faith that one's plans are carried out by playing the game, playing the system. (to bring forth an…)

 

20 "Awakening” from above for "Judgement” below. By a call to action that comes from angels sounding trumpets to awaken a man, a woman, and a child to arise from the abyss to fulfill a great cause and war against those that oppose the cause. (this is to be carried out…)

 

30 By the use of thoughtful deduction, retrospection, and mental superiority over others to force submission and surrender all for the cause by being totally indifferent to those its attacks and those who follow it. (This is brought forth…)

 

3 by manifesting, expanding, creating ideas, to increase entrepreneurship /commerce, and forms of entertainment to brainwash/propagandize by one’s innate appreciation of pleasure, romance, art, beauty, self-glory to war to win and control all brought forth by the Empress of Divine Activity.

 

That describes the task of Ashtoreth and we are seeing these today playing out – are we not?

 

Further notes – what does Chaldean numbers mean for 666?

 

666 comes from adding these numbers together 600+60+6. Thus 600, 60, 6 have meanings and the fallen angels, pagan false deities associated with them.

 

600 – is Timat  - the chaos being – known also as Ninshursag (Old crone of triple goddess lore)

 

60 is Anu – known aka as Satan/Zeus in Greek pantheon 

 

6 is Nergal/Apollo’s number

 

Bible says 6 is number for a man – the son of the devil – to release chaos- Timat/Ninshurag/Azazel from the abyss.

 

More…

 

Also note - In the bible in Isaiah 65:11 ESV/NASB mentions two false deities identified as fortune (Gad) and destiny (Meni) in the ESV and NASB. Jewish interpretations have Gad identified with the planet Jupiter and called by the Arabs “the greater Luck-fortune both correspond to the number 10 in Chaldean number system.

 

Meni (M?nî) is identical with the goddess Arabian god Manât, who is known also as Ninshurag/Azazel the old crone of triple goddess worship…

 

Look at the number 20 again: "Awakening” from below for "Judgement” above. By a call to action that comes from angels sounding trumpets to awaken a man, a woman, and a child to arise from the abyss to fulfill a great cause and war against those that oppose the cause. (this is to be carried out…)

 

It is a shame that the much of the modern church has taken the supernatural out of the bible and does not teach what once was known as “givens” by 2 temple era Jews and the early church during its first 300 years. So much is missed in bible prophecy.

 

The world is moving toward that occultic 10 attitude very openly in media, government, science, arts, etc showing their plans, broadcasting them. 2 Timothy 2:1-9 reveals the effects in church people in the last days who acts like the world does promoting self-love gospels, being haughty with the things of God as okay.

 

We see the occult number 30 - meaning in operation today. The big Jezebel spirit and his minions giving his human followers a mental superiority attitude of introspective elitism who desire one world Government so that all aspects of science, math, the arts, government, media, etc are united by the occult number 3 and 20’s meanings.

 

Have you notice how brainwashed the left, the cultural Marxist are – they listen to no one and allow no opposition to their wise plans. If one opposes it is all severity pushed on them to either submit or be silenced.

 

Meanwhile the much of the modern church focuses only attaining blessing by rituals and use of the ways of the world as the means for success and not on what is coming down the pike. So sad.

 

Jesus said this…  "Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth. "But keep on the alert at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man." Luke 21:34-36. NASB

Have You own Way Lord!

by Bryan W Melvin on 12/15/18

Lord, have Your Own Way

Bryan W Melvin

 

Have you noticed lately - The Church, the bride of Christ is batter bruised, anemic?  Division in the church! Inflated egos rule from pew and pulpit! People leaving feeling frustrated without lasting answers. However, at one time the church used live as a way of life to the words of this old hymn.

 

Have thine own way, Lord!

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Thou art the potter, I am the clay. 
Mold me and make me after thy will, 
while I am waiting, yielded and still. 

 

Today the church has changed the lyrics and sings

 

Have My own way, Lord! Have MY own way! 
I am the potter; You lord are the clay. 
I Mold you and make you after my will, 
By declaring my wants, unyielded, all in thy name 

 

The results:  Suicides rates increase, despair infects our children. People confused, feel lost, no hope. No vision, hopelessly adrift.  That you?

 

We watch how people backstab each and out for blood in the news. We see the real affects of alcohol, drugs, and addictions has on those around us. Sexual deviance and immorality reigns but the psychological toll this has on one soul is ignored.

 

Society Markets band aids, self-help books rule… Power, control. Craziness increases, and this is passed it on to next generation. The church says WE want to reach youth … millennials!

 

Yet many are killing themselves, others lost in a sea of ungratefulness. So many of our kids don’t know how to relate to other human beings unless by texting, Face Book, social media where they can paint themselves off as super heroes, super cool, have 2000 friends – yet do not really know anyone – and if one defriends them – end of the world…  

 

Others are lost in gangs – craziness of the street – bored – get high – pain again and again. Adults likewise are caught in the same traps.

 

Question: Do people see more of Jesus in us or more of the world? Are you a moral compass for God or a rudderless ship?

 

Or we an island from the storm or do we help keep the storms going?

 

We are losing our youth.  Our communities, Our cities, towns, homes, families, country…

 

While we sing in our pew:

 

Have My own way, Lord! Have My own way! 
Your grace gives me absolute sway.
Fills me with all my desires I see 
World only, always, living unhindered in me! 

 

Folks – let’s be real: The church world is a mess…

 

No wonder people leave the church…

 

No wonder there is such division and strife in the church….

 

Big egos – that is the problem – egos that cry out – how dare you judge me, condemn me, convict me, I am all right…I can do what I please…

 

Big egos that come from broken homes, that lack of feeling loved, where love is confused with control because of the betrayal, neglect, abuse, mocking, scoffing, left forsaken left - all alone - that wounds the soul – now moves egos to seek power, fame, or even self-sabotage! 

 

We have in abundance big egos coming into the church - creating division – strife

 

No longer does the church sing, “Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! Thou art the potter, I am the clay.  Mold me and make me after thy will, while I am waiting, yielded and still.” 

 

Instead, let’s build the church the worlds way – we can help God out – market church – must be a non-offending church – never reflect the real Jesus but make a Jesus in the image that the world likes… never offending. You know a Jesus Genie from the bible, who never convicts…

 

You know - All revivals in Church history began the same way. God changes not but oh how do we like to change God!

 

“Bend me” was the motto of great Welsh Revival uttered from Evens Roberts and the Spirit of God fell. What were the results: People felt great heaviness, hand of God upon them revealing life is not alright, people drawn into church, saloons shut down, abuse stopped, lives change…

 

An  prayer warrior before the Azusa Street Revival prayed – “let us become small so that You Jesus can become big!”

 

John the Baptist even said… “I must decrease that He Must Increase”

 

We do hear this today - do we? Jesus taught about denying self – and guess what - today he’d be a stranger in most churches with a message like that.

 

Instead, it is all about how wonderful you are…  or If you do this formula or follow this ritual God is obligated by his own spiritual laws to do for you whatever you need because you are so wonderful.

 

Or you hear this line: God operated by laws that the occult stole from so it is okay to use these to get their gets with God. But the bible says what – 2 Co 6:15, “what accord has Christ with Belial? What fellowship has light with darkness?” NKJV answer is: NONE

 

Stop mocking God, tempting him by jumping off into things you shouldn’t do that are forbidden in the bible to do…

 

Let’s be honest folks – many are pining away – many have no hope – no future seen.  We are driven by all the trauma in our lives to escape the pain of betrayal, abuse, being forsaken…

 

This creates a landing place for the devil to have in common with us, so we continually feed fat egos.  Feed what continues to rob, steal, ruin, and life around us. With politics, with racism, with hate, bitterness, unforgiveness, revenge that drives us to escape pain.

 

Let’s be real – how wonderful are we?

 

Even Roberts of the Welsh revival – cried out – “Bend Me – Break me oh Lord!”

 

Others cried out, “Make us small Lord Jesus, so you can become big here….”

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Search me and try me, Savior today! 
Wash me just now, Lord, wash me just now, 
as in thy presence humbly I bow. 

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Wounded and weary, help me I pray! 
Power, all power, surely is thine! 
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine! 

 

There is a truth in Mal 4:6-7s: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. 6, And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” NKJV

 

Are we in the church under a curse?

 

Pastor from Wellington Colorado told of this true-life event. While He was at work one doing contractor work the lord allowed him to see into the heart of the man who hired him, and asked,  “Is something wrong?”

 

With that the man melted and said, “Today I just struck my son, I swore I would never do that…”

“Did your father hit you?”  

 

“Yes” - the man said.

 

There is a curse upon this earth and in the last days.  It does not matter how old one is. If stuffed happened long ago, it tears you up inside. You carry that burden. The pastor was used by the Lord to help the man, praise God. You see, when the hearts of the children return to the Father, this breaks this curse – do you hear?

 

Folks what would your church – family – wherever you live look like if you modeled Jesus Christ and not the ways of the world that many of our own kids see in us?

 

We do not model Jesus Christ very well in our homes, church, towns, cities, country. Instead we model the morals and ways of the world very-very well.

 

We model big fat egos in the church supremely well – division strife – no unity – no harmony - looks of cat fight nit picking – pointing the finger of condemnation.  Lots’ of slanderous gossip while we lose more to suicide…drugs… booze lust bitterness

 

Break us of Lord! Break us!

 

Who among us models the fruit of Holy Spirit everyday?

 

You know as Galatians 5:22-23 says: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control., righteousness, and truth” NKJV

 

What would your home be like if you did – your church if you… its possible and nothing is impossible that God can’t do…

 

Gal 5:24-26, “…Who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.” NKJC

 

Eph 5:8-11, For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 discovering what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” NKJV

 

How do we return – who do we correct our ways?

 

Let me share on this briefly and afterwards let’s pray together about this.

 

We cry out to repent and we take that to mean that we are to just only feel sorry for doing wrong, but nothing changes. True isn’t it?

 

Let me share word picture of what true repentance looks like:

 

Run to our Heavenly Father’s lap, climb on up and tell him every evening: “Lord, I failed to model you today to my wife – husband – kids – friend today.  I struck my friends! I let bitterness rule me…revenge move me!”

 

“Wash me with your blood and cleanse me so I can learn daily to better reflect who you are. Raise me into new life in you. Heal my heart from not being able to reflect you.”

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Thou art the potter, I am the clay. 
Mold me and make me after thy will, 
while I am waiting, yielded and still. 

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Search me and try me, Savior today! 
Wash me just now, Lord, wash me just now, 
as in thy presence humbly I bow. 

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Wounded and weary, help me I pray! 
Power, all power, surely is thine! 
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine! 

 

Have thine own way, Lord! Have thine own way! 
Hold o'er my being absolute sway. 
Fill with thy Spirit till all shall see 
Christ only, always, living in me! 

 

Bible says in 1Jn 1:8-10, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us” NKJV.

 

That’s the cure folks for the division in the church… deflate egos by healing the broken heart that caused them. We decrease – can we pray to deflate our egos – so he can increase in us?

 

Did you not know it says in Rom 8:29 – “For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.” NKJV

 

Let’s pray, repeat after me – place hand on heart stomach or raise your hands

 

Dear Heavenly Father, I run to you and climb upon your lap: Hold me…

 

Lord, I failed to model you today to my wife – my husband – my kids – my friends today.  I stuck my family, son, daughter, I failed to provide and spent it all on get highs and gambling and stupid things.

 

I failed to model you today. I live in bitterness and revenge and spread it around more that I show you … It is killing me and stopping me form going further with you.

 

I have a wounded heart, broken and traumatized because I was hit, abused, forsaken, betrayed, neglected, ignored, lied about and this inflated my ego to escape this pain… I drown it in violence, watching terrible movies – porno, I yell scream a lot and end up doing the things I swore I would not do to my family friends’ kids

 

Wash ne with the Blood of Jesus, wash my heart, my eyes, my ears, my mind clean and teach me every day to reflect you better than the day before. I vow to come here every-day before you to be so washed cleansed I choose to forgive those who hurt me…

 

Forgive me Lord…. (Now take a few seconds and really ask to be forgive and to live born again) Count to 100

 

Let’s pray again repeat after me:

 

Now I ask you Lord Jesus by the same spirit that raised you from the dead quicken my mortal body, heart, mind soul fill me with thy Resurrection power to heal my broken heart, so I have nothing in common with the devil, the world, and their ways. Baptized me in the Holy Spirit!

 

Raise me into new life in you and heal my heart from not being able to reflect – model you – so I can do better each and every day…

 

And Lord I by faith raise the Cross of Christ my Lord over my life, heart, mind, I raise it above; my family, church, friends, enemies, and demand by the power of Jesus Name that every devil around these parts look at it.

 

You all have been defeated by the cross of light above this land – so bug off me, my family church friends my people, this area…

 

Bug off you have been made a public spectacle of - by that Cross of Jesus - you will bow your knees to the Lord Jesus Christ who defeated you and who destroyed all your works in Jesus name and get out of my life, my family, friend’s lives … in Jesus name – amen

 

I am his own

 

I will run to My Heavenly Father’s house every day and learn how stop reflecting the flesh the word and the devil to all those around me by running boldly to the throne of God’s Grace and find you help in time of need.

 

Have thine own way, Lord Jesus! Have thine own way! 
Thou art the potter, I am the clay. 
Mold me and make me after thy will, 
while I am waiting, yielded and still. 

 

Have thine own way, Lord Jesus! Have thine own way! 
Search me and try me, Savior today! 
Wash me just now, Lord, wash me just now, 
as in thy presence humbly I bow. 

 

Have thine own way, Lord Jesus! Have thine own way! 
Wounded and weary, help me I pray! 
Power, all power, surely is thine! 
Touch me and heal me, Savior divine! 

 

Have thine own way, Lord Jesus! Have thine own way! 
Hold o'er my being absolute sway. 
Fill with thy Spirit till all shall see 
Christ only, always, living in me! 


Something Strange Came

by Bryan W Melvin on 11/02/18

There is a steady infiltration going on. We see it every day across the western world. Signs on Church marques and websites advertising Christian Yoga classes and relaxation techniques. Use of Angel cards to witness to the lost and Angel Boards to spell out what to do from angels. Barking and weirdness passed off as high marks of one’s uber spirituality.

 

Bible tells us to test all things and try the spirits in 1 John 4:1; yet, there is so little of this today that it causes one to feel great compassionate grief. Why – you see how lucid dreaming techniques are Christianized in order to ascended to contact your guiding angel or God himself or used to just waltz into heaven anytime one pleases despite one’s sinful state.

 

As I stated before, I know that all the spiritual gifts are still valid for today and sorely needed. That the Lord still speaks in dreams and visions. God still heals according to his sovereign will as the bible reveals.  That the Holy Spirit guides us and can speak to us in many different ways. The Lord certainly can allow people to see heaven and hell in after death encounters or by vision or dreams.  

 

I have been Walking with the Lord for 38+ years now and have encountered the fake and seen the real. My desire is show you how one can tell if such things are from God or not. Wouldn’t you like to know the truth?

 

Counterfeits

 

Bible is our guide book. In 2 Co 6:14-18 it indeed shouts loud and clear that the ways of God have absolutely nothing in common with the works of the Devil and his minions or the ways of the unsaved world. Nothing.

 

A counterfeit is not real. Satan’s minions use counterfeits to mock God’s character and good nature and causes folks to join in that mocking, so God is aroused to turn against the user cashing in on the counterfeits. After all, using a counterfeit transgresses the law of God against practicing the occult.

 

In John 14:30, Jesus declared that the ruler of this world’s system, the devil, had nothing – no claim on Jesus.  Can you say that? If one uses angel cards and angel boards, how is that any different from tarot cards and ouija boards? None at all no matter how one tries to package it with an approved by Jesus label.

 

Something Strange Came

 

Back in the 2005-10 period something strange swept into the church. By 2015, Bill Johnson publicly rebuked and warned people about one 'Jason Westerfield.' Before that, Jason was extolled and the greatest thing to happen in one of the fastest growing segments in the modern church world. He was seen in documentaries, videos, and on Christian TV touted as a great man of God. 

 

You can still find Mr. Westerfield after his rebuke on videos, and in his own words, make statements that he was never a Christian and brought the New Age Movement into the church. That was his main goal. This was an embarrassment to many who promoted him, and it was swiftly swept under the rug.

 

Before his exposure, others also practiced what he preached. One man claimed that he, like Jason, could enter into heaven anytime he wanted to attain deeper revelations while in the midst of having an adulterous affair betraying the wife of his youth. Does that even make logical sense in light of Habakkuk 1:13?

 

While watching these men practice, I felt grieved while many folks were saying they were great leaders of the church for ushering in a new mighty move of God.

 

First time I saw Jason, I said to myself, he has critters. When that other man became popular. I saw a demonic serpentine spirit working in his meetings as he imitated Jason’s approach. I couldn’t say anything cause if I did – shot down.

 

Then both men were rebuked. Jason left the Church while the other, I pray, wakes up and self corrects according to the grace of God mentioned in Titus 2:11-15. It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God especially those who use counterfeits which were designed by the devil to incur God’s wrath against his own people.

 

That’s Old News Now

 

My question is this, why did not the practices brought in by Mr. Westerfield receive the same rebuke, warnings, and calls to stop such antics?

 

Why do these continue in some quarters of the church and in many cases – spreading across denominational lines: Christian Yoga – empty the brain type of prayers – it’s all about ‘you’ sermonettes that ignore the bible and make the church so weird that folks visiting run to the hills – why did not the teachers test and toss out all this stuff brought in as well?


Such an answer is not easy because the occult world does deliver enough goodies to hook a person because it works and gets results. So, by stealth, the practices of the New Age Movement and Occult has crept into the church due to results it gives.

 

So, a “it works and feels good, so it must be of God,” mentality is justified to continue to bring more elements of the New Age and occultism into the church. All justified by reasoning, that since there are counterfeits, then the counterfeits have some Godly truth behind them, so it is okay to correct the counterfeits and take back what once belonged to God.

 

I ask you, to sincerely to ponder that line of reasoning for a moment and mull over it for a bit. While doing so, I ask the Holy Spirit to awaken you to how naive such reasoning really is. It is no different than the devil saying to Eve in the Garden of Eden, “Has God really said…?”

 

In this case  he whispers to the church– "Has God really said not to explore the counterfeit to find the real? These are  good for food, it is pleasant to behold, feel, do, and these can make one wise!"

 

Sadly, the devil deceives in such manner that causes people unknowingly mock God’s character and good nature. In turn God is aroused to turn against the user cashing in on the counterfeits with a kind warning first and then dismissal later on if not careful. Whom do you desire to stand loyal too?

 

Here is one for you

 

Please read this quote with the blood of Jesus covering you from Anton LaVey of the church of Satan, who died in the late 1990’s:

 

“In the scores of books lining the shelves of New Age bookstores, there are instructions for guided meditation, creative visualizations, out of body experiences, getting in touch with your spirit guides, fortune telling by cards, crystal balls or the stars. What if Satanists reclaimed these for their own dark purposes and integrated them into rituals dedicated to the Devil, where they rightfully belong? New Agers have freely drawn upon all manner of Satanic material, adapting it to their own hypocritical purposes… But in truth, all ‘New Age’ labeling is, again, trying to play the Devil’s game without using His Infernal name.” — Anton LaVey, quoted in Church of Satan, B. Barton, p.107

 

So, the strongest proponent of satanism says that the New Age Practices are in reality, satanism in disguise. These are practices that Westerfield and others have brought into some segments of the church. These create division, tension, split families, and make some members of the Church develop a ‘better than thou’ mentality because they think themselves as 'on the cutting edge.'

 

With this cavort, we are witnessing Luciferin practices being mixed into segments of the church practiced under the guise of promoting tolerant non-judgmental love, harmony, to achieve a better you, and using laws of positivity for self-centered gain.  This should send shudders down your spine.

 

So, what do about this?

 

Short answer: test the spirits, test all things. Well how do we do that?

 

Let me make it as simple as possible. Turn too 1 John 4:1-6 and let’s go verse by verse so you can learn how.

 

1Jn 4:1, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. "

 

We are called to test the spirits. Remember this, a true man or woman of God will commend people testing what he or she teaches as the Bereans did as Acts 17:10-11 reveals for searching the scriptures daily to find out whether what was being taught or revealed was true or not.

 

If you encounter a teacher or folks touting, ‘do not touch not the Lord’s anointed’ for questioning practices and teachings, take heed, something is wrong. 


While it is true that King David said the same words about King Saul when he was being chased by Saul, I ask you to please take note that the true context of ‘touch not the Lord’s anointed’ refers to touching the persecutor and not the persecuted. Hmmm???

 

The bible is clear, test all things. It is okay to test those things taught to you with and by the word of God. There is no surer way to quench the Spirit of God than by not testing to see if a move of the Spirit, or doctrines taught, or even a vision is from God (1 Thess 5:15-23) or not.   

 

Let’s continue

 

1Jn 4:2-3, "By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” NKJV

 

I use a form of this verse when I encounter something spiritual happening and you can too to test any angelic visitor, vision, Jesus, or even the demonic posing as a good thing by asking it this:

 

“Are you (of) the Lord Jesus Christ who came in the flesh and destroyed all the works of the Devil – are you (of) the Lord God of Israel who came in the flesh and makes a public spectacle of all the works of the enemy?”

 

This is based on 1 John 4:3-4 and 1 John 3:8, “…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He mightily destroys the works of the devil.” NKJV

 

So, if you have a dream, a vision, or encounter some supernatural entity – demand it to answer that question. You will be amazed how someone’s personal angel will disappear or screech when this happens. Or the vision ends.  Or the Jesus in the room leaves. Or you are hit by dead silence accompanied by feelings of guilt, shame, or grieving for dare asking. If these things happen – it is not of God.

 

Trust me in this, the Lord himself and all his true loyal angels do not mind, nor will they ever take offense if you ask them this. If folks did this, much of the so called overabundant trips to heaven would cease and many angel guides would leave, and utter bizarreness in the church curtailed. Thus, the Holy Spirit is no longer being quenched and a true move of God happens.

 

You can ask this if you encounter any move in the church and add to the words – “Lord is this really of you or not – show me…” and He will indeed show you in many various ways and timing if it is or not.  

 

Further way to discern

 

1Jn 4:4-6, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore, they speak as of the world, and the world hears them.” NKJV

 

You who are born again, have the Holy Spirit of God inside you and can overcome by the means discussed so far. Next, note if a spirit, angel, or new revelation justifies the ways of the world, compromise with the world and its culture in music, sermon, message, be sure it is not from God.

 

The Lord Jesus who came in the flesh and destroyed all the works of the devil does not condone using counterfeits to discover forgotten truths needed to take back the things of God. A little leaven does what?


Folks, such logical fallacy as that defies the sovereignty of God who owns all the heavens, the earth, the entire universe and all things in it. Let him give you the real deal by you forsaking chasing after how to take back the fake.

 

Next

 

1 John 4:6, “We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” NKJV

 

If you hear that God is tired of old ways, that the cross is overstated, or both the cross and resurrection of Christ is just too offending, beats people down, or overused, so that all one needs are 'new revelations' to attain favor and get your gets from god who is your loving servant – oh you wonderful you, ya big lovable lug! Something is amiss,

 

Or even hear in some manner that the church needs to do things a new way as the old is outdated, etc., take heed to the word of God on this subject and align with God’s word quoted below and not some new sugar-coated revelation.

 

Jeremiah 6:16 says, “Thus says the LORD: "Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls...” ESV

 

Don’t reason and say as the last sentence of that verse says: “...We will not walk in it…”

 

Don’t go that direction. There is a whole lot of quenching the Spirit of God going on and each person needs to self-correct on his or her own concerning where we each err and thus get back on the ancient path where the good way is. This leads us to the last point:

 

What are the ancient paths where the good way is - Let me make it simple

 

2 Th 2:13, “But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth…” NKJV

 

Eze 18:30-32, "Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, everyone according to his ways," says the Lord GOD. "Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? 32 For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies," says the Lord GOD. "Therefore, turn and live!"  NLKV

 

Luke 24:47, …that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” NKJV

 

Acts 17:30, “Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent…”

 

Acts 26:18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.'

 

That is the ancient way – run to Jesus – be forgiven and cleansed – turn to him. Get your broken heart healed.

 

Psalms 107 speaks of how the lovingkindness of God lets people blow it, then brings them low, so they return to God transformed out of fears and darkness and restored into his marvelous light

 

Are you tired of living in darkness?

 

John 1:9 – run to Jesus the Ancient of days – the ancient path and way back to God – the lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world. Admit your failures and sins to him. Seek him by means of prayers where you pour out your heart to him as a close friend. He loves you that much.

 

Also Know this about the ancient paths

 

From the ash heap God reveals our ancient inheritance lost by the fall

 

1 Pet 2:9 says – we are a royal priesthood and holy nation set apart for God. This means we are part of the heavenly Council - We can run boldly to the throne of grace to find help in time of need - Heb 4:16

 

Talk to God as a friend and discuss things with him and seek him and his ways

 

Matt 5:13-16 - Be salt and help retrain the moral rot of sin and stop the demonic kingdom form winning. Learn to shine Jesus’ light to a lost and dark world

 

Don’t let your lamp run dry nor keep it hidden sand thus don’t be like this…

 

Eze_33:31, So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain.” NKJV

 

The Gospel is not about what you can gain but about trusting Jesus in all things, all circumstances, and if gain comes – how to use it wisely ….

 

John_15:19, If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” NKJV

 

The ancient path has nothing in common with the world – and learns how to love the world less and less and God and each other more and more and also to expect persecution…

 

That God’s grace is not cheap because it free – by it costs us our iniquities, lust, ungodliness – looks for Jesus’s return – so we do his good on earth as it is written

 

Titus 2:11-15, “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. 15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.” NKJV

 

The ancient path involves

 

God’s will for us which is our sanctification – the removing the darkness in us - out of us - by healing our broken hearts, setting the captive free from repeating issues of destruction, and setting the prisoners free from bondages as it is written in Isaiah 61:1-4.

 

Isa 61:1-4, "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, 3  To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." 4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations.” NKJV

 

That is our duty and his good works he works through us to do. He changes not no matter how boring you think the message of the cross is or failing.

 

And yes - God uses dreams, visions, healings, prayer, the blood, resurrection power, his word/bible - he changes not - to lead, guide, teach us, as well as heal our hearts and souls. He is the same yesterday and forever

 

Let’s pray…not to forsake the ancient path – Jesus – the door and only way to heaven! Lord of all who desires to give good things to his people.
