Mega Preachers Exposed Part 3. Victoria Osteen a closer look

Victoria Osteen classes herself at a Co Pastor at the Lakewood Church that her husband Joel Osteen preaches at in Houston Texas. The Church has a membership of 43,000 and the church venue can seat 16,000+

This article is a closer look at what Victoria Osteen preaches and we dig a bit deeper into her short (compared to Joel Osteen´s) sermons and see what Gospel is being preached and whether it is similar to her husbands. The services are broadcast on TV and are available online after the event.

First of all what is Lakewood Church all about and what are it´s beliefs?
Lakewood Church believes that the entire Bible is inspired by God, and the church bases its teachings on this belief. The church also holds in account the belief in the Trinity, as well as the recognition of the death of Christ on the cross and resurrection.

From the commands found in the Bible, the church practices the following:

Salvation: Each service offers an Altar call at the end in order for people to accept Christ as Lord and Savior.
Water Baptism: The church believes the bible asks for this symbol as a testimony to faith in Jesus Christ -in his cleansing power through his shedding of blood on the cross for us. Baptism is practiced every Saturday night in the church's Chapel.
Communion: The church believes the Bible asks for this act of remembering what Jesus did on the cross. It is offered once a month.
Growing Relationship with Jesus Christ: Lakewood believes that every believer should be in a growing relationship with Jesus by obeying God's Word, yielding to the Holy Spirit and by being conformed to the image of Christ.
Lakewood Church is known for its Word of Faith teaching. via Wikipedia

All sounds above board and wholesome stuff. Let´s get beyond the Church narrative and see what actually is said in practice by Victoria Osteen as part of this dual Pastor set up at Lakewood Church during one of their so called "services".

Video 1 Victoria Osteen | Do Good for your own self, Not for God | Billy Madison



Video 1 Analysis

Didn´t get that. Here´s the transcript.

So I just want to encourage every one of us to realise when we obey God, we're not doing it for God - I mean, that's one way to look at it - we're doing it for ourselves, because God takes pleasure when we're happy,"

"That's the thing that gives Him the greatest joy. So, I want you to know this morning: Just do good for your own self. Do good because God wants you to be happy."

"When you come to church, when you worship Him, you're not doing it for God really. You're doing it for yourself, because that's what makes God happy. Amen? Let's open our hearts to Him today."

This video went Viral for good reason way back in 2014 with Christians up in arms and the media had a field day. Victoria Osteen responds via The Blaze and defended her comments and suggested critics were misinterpreting her meaning.

"While I admit that I could have been more articulate in my remarks, I stand by my point that when we worship God and are obedient to Him we will be better for it," she said.

"I did not mean to imply that we don't worship God; that's ridiculous, and only the critics and cynics are interpreting my remarks that way"

"Every Lakewood member knows what I was talking about because they have experienced first hand the joy and victory of a Lakewood Church worship service, and the honor, reverence and gratitude we show God."

What do I Think?
I think even the most inexperienced Christian will realise something is not right here. Basically what she said in her sermon is put yourself first, make sure you are happy and then God will be happy. God is your Genie in a bottle. The Exaltation of self is being promoted. This is not a Christian value and is the exact opposite of meekness and humbleness and humility which are Christian virtues. In her response she states "I stand by my point that when we worship God and are obedient to him we will be better for it." Yes that´s very true and I´m in agreement but why wasn´t that said on the night concerned. There is no way that was inferred or remotely mentioned in her original statement in the sermon. Does "when we obey God, we´re not doing it for God" sound like "when we worship God and are obedient to him we will be better for it." Doesn´t matter which way you slice it. It does not. All she is doing here is preaching a lie and then defending it with another one. We could go on here but the point has been made and the damage has been done.

Video 2 With Our Words and Actions - Victoria Osteen 2 years later July 8 2016



Video 2 Analysis

This video is 2 years later after the disastrous sermon of 2014 that went viral. Things have changed....but have they. The Sermon is titled "With OUR Words and Actions" Here´s some statements from that sermon.

I´m going to help someone else, that will make God happy

I don´t just want to talk that talk I want to walk that walk God...I want to make you happy. See there is a profound affect that takes place when you change your thinking and you change your act of Gratitude and you express it in this way

We need to take the limits of God today, .... let´s dream for some big dreams, what could you do for your family they can´t do for themselves
"
This sounds a change from Video 1 where "You're doing it for yourself, because that's what makes God happy" we have now moved to "I´m going to help someone else, that will make God happy"

Check the wording on these 3 sentences, just like Joel Osteen the words I´m, I, You, Your, We..they are rampant. Statement 2 has these words of the Self mentioned 8 times. What is being preached here is pretty much the same as Joel Osteen. We change our thoughts and actions and God will bless us to bless others. It´s as if God is some sort of Supernatural tool we can use or a Genie in a bottle. Keep him happy and blessings will come. She mentions helping others or the family. The Bible says help those in need "Widows, Orphans, The Poor, The Naked, The Sick, The Homeless" No mention of those words in this sermon, no mention of the needy whatsoever. Change your thoughts and God will bless you so you can bless other people is pure self motivational talk and not Christianity and is promoting "Works". Sure God wants you to keep his statutes and commandments and do good deeds AFTER you have been SAVED but to earn Salvation this is done by faith and repentance of sin. Again three words absent in this sermon. What is being preached here is some sort of Salvation by Works and as we know Works will not get you saved "they are as filthy rags" as is stated in the Bible

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

If you are truly in the faith God Knows you are thankful, he knows your thoughts and that´s the reason for prayer. Helping somebody else is something most people do even if they are not Christians. Helping the old lady across the road is an example of works. God blesses those who have faith in God, not those who have faith in themselves and do good deeds to seek favour with God to get that warm glowy feeling being preached here.

Video 3 Living in Shalom - Victoria Osteen



As long as we live on this physical earth there will always be something that is trying to steal our peace and try and take that Shalom

The Bible says we are to seek peace and pursue it Psalm 34:14

We have to seek it, maintain it and stay with it, pursue it and don´t let it get out of our sight

God says I have given you my peace and we have to pursue that peace in every area of our life

Jesus said before his crucifixion "My peace I give you" "Don´t let your heart be troubled I have overcome the world"

Peace has nothing to do with what´s on the outside but what is on the inside

You need to figure out why the peace has gone

I had the peace then talked myself out of it

Video 3 Analysis

I got to about 7 minutes of this video and had to turn this thing off!

Let´s talk about peace. If you are a TRUE Christian and have the Holy Spirit you will have the following qualities NO MATTER WHAT. These qualities will be meekness, kindness, patience, humbleness, humility, love, caring and PEACE amongst many others. You will have this peace no matter what, it´s an internal thing not an external one influenced by external factors.There is simply no confusion of this issue.

She quotes Psalm 34:14 "Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it" probably just plucked out of thin air as it fits in with the sermon. I was Born Again or Saved last October, before that I used to lose my temper on a daily basis, I mean really LOSE IT. After being "Saved" I haven´t lost my temper once ever since....that´s 9 months now. There is an inner tranquility I never had before. That´s PEACE. There is no figuring out if the peace has gone, nothing will steal your peace, there is no need to seek peace because you already have it,and because you have it internally, you don´t have to worry about it getting out of your sight.

She then states the only single truth of the whole sermon and if you´re not careful and you blink and you miss it that "Peace has nothing to do with what´s on the outside but what is on the inside" which is true. BUT there is no mention here of what it is on the inside and how it got there, a peace brought about by faith and repentance. All the other statements in this Shalom sermon bury that one line of half truth and leave you confused about what Peace really is. This is how False Teaching works by burying the truth, creating confusion and ultimately creating deception......keeping you away from ultimate goal of the Bible which is THE TRUTH.

Finally a person is know by their fruits?

Video 4 Civil jury finds victoria osteen did not assault flight attendant



This actual alleged attack took place way back in 2005 and the court case didn´t hit the headlines until 2008. The details are clear in the video but Victoria Osteen was found not guilty of attacking the flight attendant in FIRST CLASS and therefore no damages were payable. It´s not made clear whether it was "air Rage" or "Racism" or that nothing happened at all, but something must have happened otherwise why go through all this hassle with a court appearance. It is noted the flight attendant as stated in another video, had only one lawyer, Victoria Osteen had an army of them. Form your own opinion on this. Either way this is something that is stamped on her passport of life and unfortunately is one of her fruits.

BOOK: Love YOUR Life: Living Happy, Healthy, and Whole
Another fruit. Say no more!

$600K stolen from Lakewood Church (2014)??

Conclusions.
Victoria Osteen is yet another one of those preachers or Pastor´s that can tell a good story, throw in a few bible quotes and get you nodding your head in agreement thinking this is great stuff, why don´t other churches do this. On the surface everything looks wholesome, you are being told what you want to hear and you come away with a nice warm fuzzy glow, feeling all righteous and highly motivated ready to put those words into action into YOUR life with the blessing of God and ready for YOU and YOUR family to be a load of happy blessed bunnies. Not forgetting of course reaching deep into your pockets in appreciation for this amazing life transforming information gift that you have received. Got to be worth 100 bucks at least?

The problem is the Happiness, as in the smiling version with Brilliant White Teeth assured in the Age of Osteen, doesn’t last, cannot satisfy, and often is not even real. What´s wrong with the Victoria Osteen and her husbands theory on Christianity......... if you can call it that?

Vid: A video featuring the owner of this website sheds some light titled 15 Signs of a False Preacher

1. There is a watering down of the Gospel, a common tactic amongst Prosperity and Word of Faith preachers commonly known as False Preachers. It sounds good but there is no meat on the bones and therefore has little or no meaning.

2. There are no religious symbols in the Lakewood Church such as a Cross, Picture of Jesus or anything to do with Christianity, just some more business like looking logos and a massive rotating globe. You could be in a Business Conference Centre you wouldn´t know the difference.

Recent Interview on Patricia Sheridan she asked Victoria Osteen´s husband Joel Osteen why there are no religious symbols in his church and what is the Lakewood logo all about

Q: So why no religious symbols on the stage at Lakewood?

A: It's never been intentional. We believe in the cross and the resurrection. It stems back to when my father started the church. He was very mission-minded and wanted to spread the good news all over the world. He started with a map, then it turned into a globe and so we just continued it.

Q: And the symbol on the pulpit?

A: It is the Holy Spirit, and the flame and circle represents the globe and it's got the dove and it even has an "L" in it. You can kind of read different things into it. It's a little deeper than I am, but anyway that's what they tell me (laughing).

Basically the Lakewood Church and the Osteen Empire is a branded entity. A profit driven corporation disguised as a church and it is amazing how many are too ignorant to understand that. The logo is called the Lakewood lamp. It features the Eternal Flame. Fire or flames are the primary symbols used to represent Lucifer, the “bringer of light”. The eternal flame is representative of the Illuminati’s immortality. They see their organization as eternal and impossible to destroy. The Globe and Circle in the Logo are both representative of The New world Order. The Joel Osteen Ministries Logo is similar employing Illuminati symbolism used by many major Corporations, Hollywood and the Music Industry. If you look at the Lectern it´s an upside down pyramid another powerful and blatant Illuminati symbol.

3. Preaching "Make God Happy" and "Works Salvation" no mention of Faith, Repentance or Sin for Salvation. No mention of Suffering, Persecution , Hell or Satan either?

4. Look at the Congregation in the videos. Do these look like Christians to you or people at some sort of Motivation and Positive Thinking Business Lecture?

5. Apparently not much in the way of Holy Music, not even Gospel. They have a rock band that plays about 5 songs at deafening levels according to a visitor who left a review on a forum.

6. Check her hand signals. I´ve been to many churches and they just stand behind the lectern, some hold onto it throughout the sermon, you may see some hand motions occassionally to prove a point but they are a rarity and not this constant waving the hands around in different formations, some are quite difficult to do and look intentionally deliberate as in the still video grab photo of Victoria Osteen above proves. Something is not right here just like Paula White?

7. Here´s a review from somebody from a forum who´s faith is probably more traditional they had this to say
Good speaker but this is not really a church ... it's a motivational speaker platform, Dr. FeelGood (Osteen) only really speaks about worldly subjects. He very, very, very rarely even refers to Scripture or mentions Jesus, in a church that claims to be Christian in basis. (read the same for Victoria). If you like warm and fuzzy, then this is your place. An extraordinarily wealthy preacher and his wealthy wife who travel in first class while homeless.people live just blocks away. No charity. All about "me". That's not Christian and you won't find it at Lakewood.

8. She never seems to read from the Bible, she holds it up at the beginning, she reads from her notes instead, even Bible quotes?

9. Same Positive Mind preaching as Joel Osteen her husband, Motivational Speaking using watered down versions of Christian Teachings

10. Uses Objective Spiritual Confusion whilst promoting Prosperity Gospel mixed with a New Age Positive Mind focusing.... which does not promote Jesus with limited congregational participation.

11. They give you the truth in limited form, but with that truth comes a lie, it sounds sweet and people love it..... but it is Deception.

12. The preaching is about putting yourself first and developing your own kingdom, rather than putting GOD first and developing and promoting GOD´s kingdom. That´s what truly makes God happy not this "Good Deeds" nonsense to get that blessed feeling that anyone can do, believer or not.

13. The Osteen message does not differentiate between believers and unbelievers — certainly not in terms of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

14. Victoria Osteen’s comments fit naturally within the worldview and message she and her husband have carefully cultivated. The divine-human relationship is just turned upside down, and God’s greatest desire is said to be our happiness. Hence their massive success.

15 Didn´t even get as far as a testimonial. Didn´t need to!

Ending on a positive note.

PLUS POINTS

1. The Mega Preachers Joel and Victoria Osteen have been married for more than a Quarter of a Century, a fine and increasingly rare example to the institution of marriage, which it has to be said is an inspiration and commendable!

What is the future of Christianity? Where is it heading?

What is the future of Christianity?


With the rise of Christian Persecution not just in China and the Middle East but increasingly around the globe questions are starting to appear in Christian´s minds (they are in mine) as to what the future holds for Christianity. Will it survive in it´s current form and where is it destined to be heading. Hence this article.

This was going to be written later this week but has been jolted into action a couple of days early as a result of the recent 84 year old priest attack inside a Church in Normandy on Tuesday 26 July 2016. Unfortunately a sign of the times we are in and a definite confirmation that we are in the End Times as mentioned in the Bible. A terrible tragedy and a cowardly attack but rest assured as unpleasant as that death was he died a martyr for his faith and the perpetrators know this and he will be going onto a better place. You can try, but you´ll never, ever beat the truth. You can kill it but it will live on in another form and it will make itself stronger. You can put out the light but it will just shine brighter somewhere else. The more persecuted Christians become the more they realise just like the Jews during the Holocaust, their faith is the true faith and it just gets even stronger as a result, so strong in fact you are willing to put your life on the line for it, the ultimate insult to anybody trying to kill you. It´s also designed to create hatred and fear within the Christian faith and community. In short the people who conducted this act are terrified of Christianity, they know it´s the truth, otherwise if it wasn´t a threat and just another fake religion, why would they go through all this trouble to kill an innocent priest?

Normandy Attack News Video via RT



Before this attack, this article was going to be formed around a previous article about the life of Anchorites, Hermits, Monks and Nuns. One in particular provided the inspiration to write this article about the future of Christianity and that is the video about Agafiya an Old Believer in the remotest areas of Siberia who escaped persecution from the Reformed Russian Orthodox Church. She refused to be a part of as it removed all the important religious parts of the faith saying they were no longer part of it. She says the reformation was done by a Satanist. Many other of these Old Believer Christians did the same thing and went into hiding in the wilderness. That requires a firmness of faith beyond belief and these people are what I call the "True Christians". They "walk as Jesus walked", "live as Jesus lived" and "Love and Jesus loved". I asked myself the question "Would you be prepared to go to those lengths and live in the wilderness off the land like a Hermit". The answer was a surprising "Yes" if things start to get very bad indeed in this world that we are living in.

Agafiya the Christian Hermit Video via RT



The Original Christian Church
Back in the day in biblical times the Holy Spirit was working strongly amongst the Christian faith and the movement was completely different to what it is today. With so many denominations, ways to be baptised and the focus on Church Buildings and their upkeep and maintenance rather than the faith and God and Jesus Christ things seem to have got lost along the way. The original biblical model for Church or "The Body of Christ" was a group of believers.... That´s it. The Christian Church back then wasn't a building. These early believers did not have church buildings to meet in. They met mostly in homes and it was a community where everybody helped everybody else. No one person was more important then the other. The first church buildings did not start to appear until the early 200s. The early church did not have denominations as we think of them today. The early Christians were the targets of repeated persecutions - some of unspeakable cruelty especially during Roman times where the "Church" was attempted by the Roman Empire to be crushed on two major occasions. Sound familiar.

Hundreds of Christians being murdered every day,for not denying Christ.



In pondering what will happen with Christianity in the future, the Old Christian Church and this Agafiya woman (picture at head of article) immediately sprang to mind and provided the initial inspiration for this article. The Normandy Priest murder attack just added an extra urgency.

What´s going to happen to the Christian Faith
I honestly think with the increased Christian Persecution, burning down of Churches (especially Christian Orthodox), removal of Christian Religious symbolism around the globe and the general generation of a dislike for Christians via the media in a subliminal way, this will lead to the faith going underground but becoming stronger as a result and popping up in new places in ever increasing numbers.

Christianity in China
China, a massive place with a huge population, at present there is a huge movement of new Christian believers underway and it´s growing at a wildfire rate and the authorities are aware of this. Christianity is not accepted in China but they still practice their faith and it has gone underground literally. It looks like the Holy Spirit is working strongly in that country for some reason just like it did back in the day in Biblical times when the "Original Church" was around. ÇGatherings in houses, farms and caves are common place.

Christianity in the Middle East
In the Middle East in the Christian heartland, Christians are getting persecuted relentlessly and many have either evacuated the Christian heartlands and live outside the religious area called the Holy Land or some have kept their faith and pay taxes to stay where they are, a sort of disincentive to the Christian faith "you want to stay a Christian and still live here...that´s fine but you will be taxed as a result". Some have just given in and become Muslim which is the main religion in the Middle East just to have an easier life and get the perks that the religion gives. You could say a process is underway in various forms around the world that is separating the "True Christian" from the "I´m just a Christian on Sunday" types. A sort of separating the wheat from the chaff scenario.

A NATO de facto war on Middle East Christians?



A recent headline from Russia further proves that Christianity is going to eventually head underground with Vladimir Putin recently announcing that he will be making Christian Evangelism outlawed in the form of Preaching either on the streets or any form of the same on websites or social media. A bit of a shock really as he is publicly known to be seen to attend Russian Orthodox Church services.

RUSSIA BANS CHRISTIAN EVANGELISM !!! AntiChrist Spirited Vladimir Putin



What form will the future Christian faith take and where is it heading?
I think with the recent Christian persecution events taking place, I really see the Christian Faith going full circle and reverting back to what it was during Roman Times with people meeting up at houses and doing the exact same thing that Christians did back in the Biblical Day. I see this very strongly. What would be the outcome for the current model of Church and it´s buildings especially say in Europe that we see today?

Europe without Christianity - The end of faith in Europe



What will happen to the Traditional Church based Christian model especially in Europe?

With the decline of the traditional church any of these scenario could pan out or things could just continue as they are. There could be other scenarios
1. Churches will either close down, become homeless shelters full time or something similar such as a community centre or just turned into pubs and supermarkets, museums, turned into flats or offices (happening already) or whatever use that the local council sees fit.
2. The other route is the Churches may be turned into "Multi Faith" venues with "All Welcome" on the doors or entrance where Buddhists, Hindus, those of Judaism faith, New Agers and Muslims and any other religions can meet along with Christians. They will be New Age Christian venues along the lines of the Mega Churches in the US such as Lakewood run by Joel Osteen and Victoria Osteen with their New Age (false) teachings but just in a smaller venue/location.
3. With the rising Muslim influx in Europe (think mass migration) in particular and increasingly empty Churches it wouldn´t surprise me if Churches with low attendance numbers that only open a couple of days a week would be shut modified, gutted, all pews removed and turned into Mosques.

SUMMARY

As a "Born Again" or "Saved" Christian (See Testimony) I personally go to Church 6 days a week (Saturday off), pray 3 times a day these days (Psalms morning and evening at home), (Psalms and Personal Prayer at Church) but I only go to an official church service on Sunday. The other 5 times I´m just praying with NO official church service (nobody is there except 2 or 3 other Christians like me praying as well) and sometimes the cleaner is there mopping the floor or using the vacuum cleaner giving us strange looks! After the Normandy attack and recent police warnings to UK Christians I stlll went to church as usual. If all the churches in the UK closed or were getting repeatedly attacked, as far as my faith is concerned it wouldn´t have the slightest impact. Church is important BUT I can pray in the Local Park, McDonalds, Library, at work, in a field I really couldn´t care less, a Church is just a building. What I call "The Sunday Church Brigade" would be affected tremendously and probably the vast majority their faith as well. But if things went full circle and people started meeting up in houses again (which I see coming) just like back in the day, then we would be at a situation which I think God would find desirable and what the original Biblical model of Church was.

The Normandy incident is just one of many recent Christian Persecution Events taking place around the globe and as this predicted emerging New World Order get´s ever closer by the day Christian Persecution I think will reach the extreme levels just as in Roman Times or as with the Jews in the Holocaust as witnessed in the Second World War. Just as in Roman Times I think there will be two divided camps again those outside the True Christian faith and those in "The Faith". People outside of the Christian faith will get sucked into this New World Order One World Religion which I think will be New Age in format a sort of one size fits all and on the surface the answer to all the worlds problems but will be a False Christianity. It will be the easier option and "The Mark" will be one of the components of adopting that faith. Those who do not adopt it will be the True or Real Christians and they will be driven underground or into the wilderness just as Agafia was when they reformed the Russian Orthodox Church. If this happens then the Prophecy in the Book of Revelation would be fulfilled.

I would say that anybody that publicly preaches, is running a website such as this or similar with a Christian or End Times bias who also has quite a following on social media is a prime target for being silenced, shut down or even attacked or worse. According to some sources that is happening already. If the updates suddenly cease on this website you will know why.

This will just drive Christianity underground and it will become stronger than it ever was. The Chinese Underground Christian Video I really think gives you a taste of what form Christianity will take in the future. Do you really think death threats or terrorist activity will deter these peoples faith. I think not. I see the way forward as being "old school", non church as in large fancy building based and non denominational. I think in the current day church something got lost along the way, something quite important.

This predicted new "Underground Christianity" or "Real Christianity", everybody will come together and will become one "Body of Christ" and "Church" will become just like it was back in the day and the Holy Spirit will be moving strongly in these very last days. People, will look on in wonder just like in those Biblical Times and think "WOW I want to be a part of that". I think that is no bad thing and maybe that it was what "The Lord" wanted all along.

The Venezuela Crisis. Are we looking at the template for future globalchaos?

The Venezuela Crisis has been hitting the headlines over the last few months but seems to be overshadowed by the recent increase in mass shootings and bombings, coups and terrorist attacks around the globe. The media seems to be diverting our attention to these events (real, fake, false flag or otherwise) but make no mistake this Venezuela crisis is a crucial development on the world stage and could prove to be a template of what could be happening globally in the not too distant future.

This article features videos either from amateurs or news sources that are not your regular mainstream media so form your own opinion, but make no mistake what is being presented here is fact. The final video is a prediction of what could happen to the US in the very near future. It may happen, it may not, it could happen later but this video has been included as we all know it´s coming.................it´s not a case of IF but when? If you think everything is peachy in the world..............you have your head in the sand....you really do!



So why Venezuela, it´s just another Latin American country that is experiencing problems like many have in the past, why the sudden interest? This is not a prophecy (I´m not a Prophet) it´s just based on an incredibly bad feeling based on NWO undertones. This Venezuela situation just seemed to leap out for some reason amidst all the world chaos and headlines that we are experiencing at the moment.

Going back quite a few years a lot of the Latin American countries were in the third world category, had massive debts and were being bailed out by the IMF, hyper inflation and experiencing economic and social instability. These days most (particularly Brazil) which is one of the rising BRICS nations are booming and are the new emerging China´s, economic powerhouses in their own right. Venezuela is hardly Brazil but did you know it has the richest oil reserves in the world more than Saudi Arabia. With all this potential wealth.......... what went wrong?

The Oil Price is what went wrong combined with gross central mismanagement. When the oil price hit $20 abarrel this country which is dependent on Oil Production got hit hard, revenues declined considerably and the result was a cataclysmic effect on the economy. The country also got hit by terrible drought which didn´t help but because the countries production was not diversified beyond oil, it got hit and hit hard.



How does the current Government/Politics work in Venezuela?
It works on and extreme form of Socialism called by some ‘Chavism’. It consists of industry nationalization coupled with social welfare policies in an attempt to solicit political support from the people in return for subsidized goods and services. Venezuela, like many other petro-states has provided basic services and reduced utility costs in return for support at the polls. In booming times, this 95% oil dependent nation has suffered at the hands of the country’s leadership, has not managed to develop other industries such as agriculture and manufacturing at times when government coffers were full hence the current crisis where the country is virtually bankrupt and is suffering the symptoms that this situation produces.

So what is the situation like in Venezuela and why is it of concern to the more Prosperous West such as the US and Europe?



Here´s what it is like in Venezuela at the moment. Remember this was a prosperous country just a couple of years ago.

There is a shortage of basic food supplies and also even basic medical supplies with no improvement in sight for the foreseeable future. Water is also showing signs of shortages and some public supplies have been turned off altogether. To get food at a supermarket the term "queue around the block" is the norm these days now in Venezuela with queues of 1km long or more being common with no guarantee that there will be food or medical supplies when you get into the store concerned.

Hyper Inflation.
A rucksack of money is required to buy just basic food items or a meal in a cafe/restaurant. It´s not quite as bad as it was in Germany before after the 1st World War where a "wheel barrow" of money was needed to buy a loaf of bread but it is heading that way and you can safely say the currency is worthless.

Gun Law and Martial Law
Caracas the capital of Venezuela has become the murder capital of the world with Guns becoming rampant and becoming a necessity for self defence as the Venezuelan society starts to go into meltdown. As a result Martial Law has been implemented and the military are involved in trying to keep some control over looting and potential riots flaring up and also the use of guns. Gun Free Zone signs are now becoming commonplace and are as prominent now as no smoking signs.

Hospitals have no medical supplies for treatment.
With the increasing unrest, lack of food and non availability of basic medical supplies, diseases are on the rise and people are heading to hospitals for treatment but are unable to get any as the hospitals are running out of basic medical supplies as well. See the videos for further shocking footage.

Rationing of Electricity.
Power outages for fixed periods of time and blackouts to conserve energy.

This is just a few of the situations arising from this economic collapse. A couple of years ago in more prosperous times it would not have been imaginable for this situation to happen but here´s what is happening in Venezuela at the time of writing as people get more and more desperate to survive.

1. Attacking and hijacking Supermarket Lorry Deliveries before they even reach the Supermarkets. Often the authorities just stand and watch doing nothing
2. Rummaging and Eating out of Garbage Bins
3. Unable to feed pets, pets running wild on the street hunting for food, some people hunting pets for food to survive...eating dogs and cats!
4. Authorities chasing and shooting at unauthorised vehicles trying to get food from less affected areas of Venezuela to those in desperate need.(ridiculously it´s against Venezuelan law to do so)
5. Looters getting beaten and shot at
6. Columbia opened it´s borders and thousands flooded in. Some sources say 35K+ others say 100K. Regardless of the numbers, stores selling food, water and medical supplies were cleared out in a very short period of time. How long the Columbian borders will stay open remains to be seen but the contagion is starting to spread.
7. Biometrics and forced finger printing is being implemented in order for people to obtain food? Coincidence or something more.
8. State of Emergency declared making the introduction of Martial Law compulsory.
9. Looting of Supermarkets and Stores to survive

Summary
In summary this is Socialism in it´s very final stages proving that total centralised Government control is not desirable and more importantly doesn´t work . As we have seen in the past centralised control via Government in the form of Communism doesn´t work, even China has given up on it. Fascism and Dictatorship throughout history proves it´s lso doomed to failure. So what´s the answer? Anarchy? Again as we know Anarchy doesn´t work either.

What´s worrying
What´s worrying, Venezuela is an oil rich nation that has been centrally mismanaged and everything happened rather quickly. Some are saying that this situation was created deliberately and that Venezuela is a blueprint or template of what is to come around the globe and are citing parallels with the current US Economy . Just like lab rats crowded in a cage and given limited or no food and watching the outcome, Venezuela looks increasingly like a social experiment to see how the public reacts to no food, water and medical supplies, a rampant gun culture and then having Martial Law imposed and mass Biometric and finger print ID forcibly introduced and see what resistance there is and what the take up rate is amongst people that are desperate and struggling to survive. You could say it is an experiment in the introduction of New world Order on a micro level.

People in the US and Europe and other prosperous nations think "This couldn´t possibly happen here could it?" The US and Europe are leading economies in the Western World but are in the very early stages of showing the same symptoms as Venezuela. The recent headlines surrounding France, Greece and recently Germany, and the Turkey Coup (real or not) being a case in point. Economically Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain as we know are not in great positions, and we saw what happened in Greece.

Future Predictions
Which brings us nicely onto Jeff Berwick of the Dollar Vigilante, a total anarchist. He amongst many others saw the 2008 crash coming and the next one in 2015 but which was averted but still produced the biggest point drop in the Dow Jones in recent times. With the Dow Jones at bizarrely high levels, levels that are making many nervous, there is a feeling just like in 1929 that the party is going to come to an abrupt halt, many bubbles are going to pop and 2008 will look like a day out in Disneyland in comparison. This Jeff Berwick has predicted the US Market Crash on a very exact date of October 2 2016 which happens to be the end of The Jubilee Year of the Shemitah , a 7 year Biblical and Jewish Cycle found in Judaism and practiced till this very day that throughout history has produced some real shocker headlines. Video below explains in full detail. Believe or not but itś an eye opener.




Is the New World Order closer than we think?
We all know that the US and Europe have used near zero or negative interest rates to avert another financial crisis just like the one in 2008. They also have used Quantitative Easing or QE which basically means printing more money and releasing it into the economy throwing caution to the wind regarding the devaluation effect it has on a nations currency. Cheap money is good for the financial markets and Central Banks and for Corporate debt but doesn´t really have any impact on the lives of people at street level as people are slowly beginning to realise. The Dow Jones can be at all times highs but really ask yourself this question "Are you enjoying the party as much as the elite are. Do you really feel any better off?"

Are we reaching the stage where Central Banks and Governments are running out of options, country debts are at such astronomical levels that just raising the interest rates 50 basis points (O.5%) means we are looking at an imminent financial collapse. Is the sick patient (economy) so addicted to QE that if we stop it would be like pulling the plug on a life support machine. Governments, financial markets and Central Banks know a scary experiment is taking place here and we don´t know where it will lead to, as it has never been tried before. All the major currencies are not backed by Gold anymore, they are what is called FIAT meaning they are a reflection of confidence in that currency. Remove the confidence and the currency crashes. Some are saying that the US Dollar is nearing a point of imminent collapse (has been said for many years) but if there was a loss of confidence it would send shock waves around the globe.It would be like BREXIT but many times worse. Already many major economies are looking at ways of trading outside the dollar which is an early indicator that the US dollar could be on it´s last legs and confidence is waning.

Would that collapse lead eventually to a similar crisis as we are witnessing in the should be wealthy oil rich nation of Venezuela but on a global scale? Could this be the way the Western World is heading deliberately to bring about a crisis just like in Venezuela which would justify the introduction of Martial Law and Gun Law. Could food rationing or deliberate food shortages be happening in the near future, with food only obtained via forced Biometrics style ID such as Finger Prints or even RFID. Those without such ID would either starve or be reduced to searching through bins or eating cats and dogs just like some are doing in Venezuela right now. It sounds ridiculous in this modern day and age, but Venezuela probably thought the same thing a couple of years ago ............ look at them now.



The potential for an Economic crisis aside, the recent rise in terrorist activity, mass shootings and bombings (real or false flag), the French Riots and Anti Government protests in other countries, the recent Turkey Coup (real or not) and what appears to be a slow but accelerating breakdown in modern society, these are clear sign posts that state that something is on it´s way. As I have said before, if society becomes destabilised either by itself, an outside force or by Government influence or some other major event, if things get to a situation like Venezuela then these "States of Emergency" we are seeing in France and Turkey and elsewhere will become the new normality in many Western Nations. Others will be forced to follow suit, you are then witnessing the introduction of Martial Law on a permanent basis on a global scale......this is the first step towards the Orwellian Society called the New World Order and the fulfillment of the 2030 Agenda.

We now live in an inter connected world. Things that happen thousands of miles away are now on our doorstep very quickly. Financial Markets, Pandemics and the recent Mass Migration happen and happen fast. It is no longer a safe view to think that what is happening thousands of miles away will not come to a major Western Economy. The Zika Virus is a recent example.

The motto is "be prepared" because what is coming, is coming and sooner than many people realise!

Bible Quotes

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Revelation 13:16-18

For God is not [the author] of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
1 Corinthians 14:33

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Romans 8:35

Mega Preachers Exposed Part 2. Joel Osteen a closer look.

A closer look at Joel Osteen, is he the real deal or is he another one of those Mega Preachers promoting a different Gospel to the true one that is in the Bible? Joel Osteen is the No1 Preacher by numbers, congregation and popularity in these modern times. Followers in the millions on Twitter, watched by a similar amount on TV and has a congregation at his church of about 38,000 some say it could be 40K. You could say he is up there as a celebrity with the Hollywood and big Music stars of our time. We will take a closer look and see if this charismatic charmer Pastor type is the real deal and a man of God or is he serving something else?

Joel Osteen is at the top of the Preaching game up there with names such as Oprah and Co and preaches a similar theme, if you can call it... Gospel. First impressions are he is a very charming, hugely popular Pastor, Author and TV Evangelist although he does not call himself an Evangelist. Also on the surface you listen to his sermons and they appear incredibly inspirational and the word YOU or YOURSELF is used frequently and there is a positive and happy vibe present. It´s very difficult to dislike this guy and just like Paula White there is the what I call the "Dyson" effect at work here. I have watched a couple of his Sermons broadcast from his Lakewood Church covering what I consider to be massively important key areas in the Christian Faith such as Jesus, Prayer, Fasting and some form of a Testimonial. I did the same in a previous article covering the Mega Preacher Paula White, that is my benchmark for judging these Preachers now. I admit I got about a third of the way through these Joel Osteen videos as I saw enough, as the theme keeps repeating itself, but formed enough of a valid opinion to construct this article.

Joel Osteen: Origins & Errors of His Teaching (a Film by Keith Thompson)



As a true Christian it is your duty amongst many to expose false preachers and false prophets and warn people of these "wolves in sheep´s clothing" that lead their often massive congregations astray and into a different or alternative form of Christianity.......one that does not appear in the Bible. Itś all very clever and subtle stuff with a lot of smoke and mirrors and it obviously works. These "Wolves in sheep´s clothing" will appear Christian on the outside, they will be charismatic, seductive, innocent looking, they will appear to be nice people and they are talking the talk? but are they walking the walk? The tell tale signs for me will always be, are you being told "What YOU want to hear" and NOT "what GOD wants you to hear" and a massive second "What are their fruits?" and an even bigger third "Are they walking as Jesus walked?"

Here is the give away No1. He preaches the New Age Prosperity Gospel where God wants you to be healthy, wealthy and successful which includes material success. There is no mention of material success in the Bible....ever as a spiritual basis to Christianity if anything the reverse. He is repackaging Christianity as a New Age religion to make it acceptable to a broader spectrum of people including Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, NewAgers, Athiests and Agnostics which form part of his congregation. That´s part of his appeal and the secret to his success.....it´s an easy Gospel...no hard work or suffering  involved and watch the good times (and the money) come rolling in. Who is not going to turn down health, wealth, success and happiness and be blessed and be part of God´s kingdom. It´s a no brainer.

Matthew 16:24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Give away No2 is he uses words like "Empowerment" and one of his books is simply called "I am", with the emphasis on the word "I". He would be classed as a "Self Help" Guru with "Positive Thoughts" being his particular focus. The power of the mind to change your life. If you type any of these words that Joel Osteen stands for into Google which include "Empowerment", "Self Help" or "I am" or "Positive Thinking" or anything similar, what comes up? What you get is .......well nothing Christian that´s for sure! What Joel Osteen preaches is "Heresy" plain and simple, it´s a New Age religion. It´s not of the Bible, it´s an alternative version of it but he weaves it very cleverly into what he preaches to give it some sort of Holy credibility otherwise on it´s own it wouldn´t stand so strongly.

He preaches this thing called Blessings again his version like most of the Prosperity Preachers including, health, wealth and prosperity including material success here on earth. These are worldly concerns. A true Christian that has the Holy Spirit is not concerned with these things and about storing wealth here on earth but is more concerned about storing it in heaven. There is no mention in the Bible that material success is a blessing from God, again it´s a blessing from something for sure, but not from the God in the Bible. In Christianity the "Lord Provides" enough to be full, comfortable but not the excesses that Osteen promotes. He promotes treaures on Earth and the worldly way of living. This is not the Christian way, they have no need of this. A bible quote below sums this one up in 11 words. It is clear where Joel Osteen´s heart is. Again this is another glaringly obvious indication that something is amiss.

Matthew 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

In the famous Larry King interview he asks Joel Osteen this question regarding some words of wisdom from an old Pastor friend who told him many years ago "If a Pastor has more than one suit ...... he´s a cop out"... how do you respond?" Joel Osteen replies that being humble, suffering and having nothing is like kind of being defeated. Here´s the thing, humbleness and humility are  major Christian virtues. If you don´t have the Holy Spirit you will deny such things.

A very relevant Bible quote sums this situation superbly where Jesus asks a wealthy man to follow him and the wealthy man asks him what do I have to do, he says just sell everything you own, give it to the poor and follow me. Verses below KJV

Matthew 19:21-25
21. Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.
22. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.
23. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
25. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

I would say Joel Osteen is similar to someone like Oprah. Charming, hugely charismatic, cuddly and lovable and likeable in the extreme and talks about God and Jesus, but which God and Jesus are they talking about. It´s a false one, not the real one that is mentioned in the Bible. His mantra seems to be "What can Jesus or God do for me" when Christianity is all about "What Can I do for God or Jesus". The Bible that Joel Osteen preaches is "God helps those who help themselves" which incidentally you will NOT find that mentioned anywhere in the Bible. Christianity is all about "Giving to those in need" and "Helping and putting others first". Christianity is not about helping those who are not in need such as multi millionaire preachers. Christianity is not about "The Self" it is about "helping others" and helping those in need such as the sick, the poor, widows, orphans, the homeless. Christianity = God first. Anybody that preaches otherwise.... is preaching a gospel of a different variety and it´s powers are coming from somewhere else.

If you are a true Christian and truly have the "Holy Spirit" you will have the gift of discernment one of the many gifts. You can tell these preachers within 5 minutes and from a mile off at best, or quicker. At worst it may take a complete sermon but you will still be able to tell. If you are not in the faith then you will get sucked in by these Joel Osteen types, thinking you are being lead to heaven when in fact you are being led directly to hell.... but you will not be aware of it. The God they are referring to is not the one in the Bible but something with more Satanic tendencies.

He has written many books which run along a similar theme as his Preaching and Sermons at his Lakewood Church but again these books are Self Help New Age books that have a sort of Christianity as a sort of secondary support mechanism and used as a vehicle to promote his "Empowerment" Agenda but if you read the Bible anything involving THE SELF is plain and simply Satanic. Joel Osteen is a "SELF help and Self Empowerment"  GURU which leads you away from God and makes you become your own God in charge of your own destiny, but obviously relying on his teachings to reach that goal.

IF he promoted his thoughts and ideas and omitted the Christian angle and the use of the Bible to further his agenda that would be acceptable, but what he is doing is corrupting the word and Christianity in the process in the name of promoting his NEW AGE alternative or false Christianity agenda.

This analysis is pretty conclusive and there is no need to even look at the fruits of his preaching. WHY? Bible quote below

Luke 6:44
For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.

Joel Osteen Interviews

As you can gather by this stage I´m fully convinced personally and on a spiritual level that this Pastor/Preacher or whatever you want to call him is not of God. But to prove the point further watch him in a Piers Morgan interview where his wife Victoria Osteen was also present (she will be analysed in a forthcoming article). The interview was held in 2011 and see what he has to say here´s one of his trademarks you´ll see when cornered.

at 10.29 Asked about Adolf Hitler he  says "I don know if I understand it all" Piers says you always cop out on difficult questions. It´s your job to know these things being in the responsible position that you are in. His usual reply is "I admit I don´t know it all" or something to similar effect

Piers Morgan Interview

Joel Osteen interview on Piers Morgan Tonight - 01/26/2011 - Part 1



When confronted on Gay Marriage, The Mormons and other controversial topics he will come out with a similar line and then add "I just want to love everybody and accept them for what they are" or "I don´t follow the scriptures as closely as the traditional Pastors" or "I try to keep things positive in my sermons and make things uplifting" or "You know I can´t really answer that question as it´s not an area I´m familiar with I tend to stick and preach on areas that I know" and other similar shrugging of shoulder lines. Politicians answers I call them and he comes out smelling of roses every time and his reputation stays intact. Very difficult to pin this one down, if you do he´ll charm his way out of it with that disarming angelic smile of his. Hence his amazing success!

Other comments

The website SO4J has this to say about Joel Osteen which is a bit harsher than what I´m saying here.

JOEL OSTEEN is a False Teacher who refuses to Take a Stand for Jesus on National & International TV as seen below. Joel has shown repeatedly that he is Ashamed of the True Gospel of Jesus Christ! Joel Osteen is a PEOPLE PLEASER vs a GOD PLEASER. He was asked by Fox News Anchor— CHRIS WALLACE: "Are Mormons Christians? Joel's shocking answer to Chris Wallace was this: JOEL answers: "Yes, In my mind they are...."// What?! Joel then continues to share his Unbiblical Beliefs about this. He apparently doesn't know that MORMONS ARE A CULT!

Another Confirmation

Still not convinced. Have a listen to what this Preacher (sounds like the real deal) had to say at a Joel Osteen session over at his MEGA Lakewood Church right in the middle of the congregation of probably about 38K and watch the security guards descend on him pretty sharpish and starts to be escorted out but he still carries on his own sermon regardless. A classic. Why security guards at a peaceful  Christian gathering??

Preacher rebukes Joel Osteen in the middle of Lakewood Church! False Prophet EXPOSED!

The Final Confirmation

Some Joel Osteen famous quotes that he has used in his sermons or in his books over the years promoting his hippy happy new age alternative Christianity that has a focus on the improvement and empowerment of the self and uses God and Jesus to help achieve those goals.

1. “Life’s too short to spend it trying to keep others happy. YOU can’t please everyone. To fulfill YOUR destiny, stay true to YOUR heart.” – Joel Osteen

2. “Nothing in life has happened to YOU. It’s happened for YOU. Every disappointment. Every wrong. Even every closed door has helped make YOU into who YOU are.”

3. “See, when YOU drive home today, YOU´VE got a big windshield on the front of YOUR car. And YOU’VE got a little bitty rearview mirror. And the reason the windshield is so large and the rearview mirror is so small is because what’s happened in YOUR past is not near as important as what’s in YOUR future.”

4. “You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life.”

5. “If YOU want success, if YOU want wisdom, if YOU want to be prosperous and healthy, you’re going to have to do more than meditate and believe; you must boldly declare words of faith and victory over YOURSELF and your family.”

6. “YOU can change your world by changing your words… Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue.”

7. “There is a winner in YOU. YOU were created to be successful, to accomplish your goals, to leave YOUR mark on this generation. YOU have greatness in YOU. The key is to get it out.”

8. “Don’t settle in the land of barely enough. That is where YOU are, it is not who YOU are. That’s YOUR location, it’s not YOUR identity. No matter what it looks like, have an abundant mentality.”

9. “Do all YOU can to make YOUR dreams come true.”

What do you notice here. The words YOU, YOUR, YOU´VE and YOURSELF are prominent here many times in each quote. This is the promotion of THE SELF before anything else, the putting of yourself before anybody else. This is not a Christian trait. Secondly there is not one  mention in these quotes of Christianity, Jesus or God. Thirdly words like success, goals, prosperous, greatness, abundant are rampant. Again these are not Christian words associated with Christianity they are words associated with something far darker. The faith he preaches here is not Faith in God it´s faith in yourself and your family.

Summary

Joel Osteen is an incredibly, initially, likeable New Age style preacher who preaches a modern version of the Christian Gospel and not the "Traditional" form as he calls it. You could say it is an updated version of the one that is in the Bible to meet the demands of people from all walks of life, all colours, creeds, religions, sexual orientation and ages and to fit in and be applied to our modern times. You are in charge of your own life and God will help you achieve YOUR goals. That´s where he is coming from.

This is My Bible, I Am What it Says I Am? Examining the Joel Osteen Creed said at the beginning of his Sermons at his Lakewood Church (Hilarious)



By using this methodology he tells people what they want to hear and it´s what I call "Positive Thinking" and "Self Help" promotion. On it´s own it´s not an issue. The problem is, it is not Christianity and he is peddling it as such. Yes the Bible is mentioned and used in his sermons but this is where the problem lies. The power of the Bible is being used to promote his New Age Alternative Modern Christianity way of thinking and in doing so is corrupting the word of God. He is leading people ( and a large number at that) away from Christianity to something completely different in what can only be called "Self Empowerment" New Age Self Worship where God takes a back seat in giving you a helping hand. God is second to you and not the other way round. He is using the Christian label to achieve this goal but the underlying religion is actually New Age. It´s a false Christianity warned about many times in the Bible, something that will happen in the End Times of which Joel Osteen is evidence of. By this definition this makes Joel Osteen a False Preacher. The evidence is overwhelming.

Vid: A video featuring the owner of this website sheds some light titled 15 Signs of a False Preacher

In interviews, sermons and other preachings, on the surface he is incredibly hard to pin down as a False Preacher. He is not excessive of his use of hand signals and other tricks to get a more sinister subliminal message across like he is conducting an orchestra. He´s one of those "I just want to love everybody and see everybody get along" types and plays on that Christian trait of "non discriminatory love". BUT the fact remains the Gospel that he is preaching is totally different to the true Gospel of the Bible. It´s a "Gospel of Man" and one that man wants to hear as proven by his popularity rather than The Gospel of God and the TRUTH! No amount of charm, charisma, humour, dressing up or slickly delivered words will change that fact. This is the sad situation, the people who follow these False Preachers as demonstrated by the Bible Quotes below, are just as damned as the False Preachers themselves, whether they are aware of what is going on or not!

39 Bible Verses that contain the words the Son of Man


39 Bible Verses that contain the words "Son of Man"

The expression or phrase "Son of Man" is mentioned 39 times in the New Testament of the Bible (KJV) and mentioned many more times in the Old Testament often in relation to prophecy and this term or phrase is used in relation to Jesus and even by Jesus. Obviously there is some importance to this reference.  But surely Jesus is the "Son of God" is the question that everybody asks, so why is he described and often describes himself in the Bible as the "Son of Man"?

This is another of those conundrums just like "The Parables of Jesus" and why  the word Verily appears so  frequently in shorter teachings when Jesus spoke.

To get to the root and the very beginning of this, you have to go to Daniel 7:13-14 which was a prophecy by Daniel of the coming of Jesus Christ.

13. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Jesus was born of a virgin called Mary that became pregnant by the Holy Spirit and who gave birth to The Son of God who was in human form and he was aligned with humanity as a result but also in alignment with God. He was the second state in the Tri State or the Trinity of "The Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost (Spirit)" often heard in the infamous blessings in Churches even  to this very day "I bless you in the name of The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost"

So "The Son of Man" has a double meaning in that he is "The Son of God" but in human form delivered to save mankind from his sins and therefore he describes himself as "The Son of Man"

This dilemma was revealed just before the crucifixion when he was approached by the elders and high priests as demonstrated very clearly in Matthew 26:63-64

Matthew 26:63
But Jesus held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God.

Matthew 26:64
Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

More detail is given in Luke 22:66-71

66.And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying,
67. Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:
68. And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
69. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God.
70. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.
71. And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

In summary the Chief Priests think he has answered in a cryptic way that he is the "Son of God" whereas Jesus says "You are saying I am the "Son of God" but I call myself "The Son of Man". Jesus knows it does not matter what answer he gives........ his destiny which is in prophecy is to be crucified.

Why does he keep using this "Son of Man" line? Because he is fulfilling the prophecy mentioned in Daniel 7:13-14, the Prophecy of Daniel all those years ago where Daniel called him "The Son of Man". In that prophecy though Jesus is described as "behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven" which is about as far removed from the situation he was in at the time being grilled by the chief priests, scribes and elders, but he sticks to his guns regardless.

The Prophet Ezekiel is referenced in the Bible 93 times as the "Son of Man" but he was the product of male and female human flesh whereas Jesus was the product of the combining of Holy Spirit and Female Human Flesh. Son of Man can be interpreted as meaning a product of human flesh in human form.

Finally the Son of Man is referenced twice in the Book of Revelation by St John the Divine that foretells of the "Son of Man" and his return which would be the infamous "Second Coming"

Death by Selfie. The dark and disturbing new trend?

The Death by Selfie is a recent phenomenon made popular by Social Media such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. On the surface a Selfie is just a bit of innocent fun, but does it have a darker side that initially does not make itself known, but creeps up on you in the more advanced stages of the "Selfie Habit". What on earth does this have to do with "End Times"? It has a lot to do with End Times as will be revealed.

The reason for this article are the two featured photos in what can only be described as disturbing pictures, the one above which was taken moments before her death, these people were very young. I have to say they shook me up a bit, they have a haunting quality about them and sum up quite succinctly where this world is heading.....as in off a cliff. This by any stretch of the imagination cannot be classed as "normal" behaviour? This article is also a continuation on from "The Seven Deadly Sins" article and will illustrate quite strongly that taking a Selfie is a Sin which has consequences. As the Bible says "the wages of sin are death".


We will take a look at why Selfies are a Sin and the warning signs that you may be on the same road as some of these victims of Narcissism. Sin is a small word, one of the smallest but is one the biggest in consequences.

What is the dictionary definition of the Selfie
Selfie is defined by Oxford Dictionaries as "a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website".as at 19 Nov 2013

Selfie you could say is derived from the word "Selfish" which plays into one of the 7 Deadly Sins which is Pride or often known as Vanity, the sub part of it and the very root of Selfies would be Narcissism. But hey "Sin" is nothing to worry about these days, we´re not living in those old biblical times anymore. We live in modern liberal times where anything goes right? You think.....read on

What is Narcissism?
According to Wikipedia "Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one's own attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water".

Narcissism is a sub set part of "Pride and Vanity" and is the deadliest of the lot and most destructive. Why, because it can lead to one or all of the other 6 deadly sins.

So what is the problem with taking a Selfie?
The actual taking of a normal selfie is not the problem but it is the beginning. As with all Sin it starts with an innocent play around or try of something which then becomes a habit, then an addiction which takes over your life and eventually that persons life is affected adversely to such an extent that they become a slave to it,........ ultimately it can lead in extreme cases to death as the Bible says.

In relation to Selfies, taking a picture of yourself and putting it on a Social Media website in itself is a fairly harmless past time but it is where it can lead to, as in darker places. The real issue is this, the person concerned is not even aware that they are heading down this dark road or that this process is happening. That`s the danger.

So what are the darker places?
Vanity can be a destructive force, but it is a crafty one, but just like say "drug addiction" it can creep up on you unawares and gradually seep into your life in ever increasing strength. To get the same buzz you have to take or do stronger versions and things can escalate and get out of control without you being aware.

The actual picture taking in a normal situation that does not involve putting your life on the line is not the problem it is where the photo goes....that is the problem. The root of all this narcissistic behaviour is social media.

As everybody is aware Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and other social media websites have "Like" and "Share" buttons. The more popular and shared a picture is the higher the Like and Share numbers are. And this is where the problem lies and is the root of this modern day Selfie Culture narcissistic behaviour.

Scenario 1
Girl takes normal selfie puts on Instagram, it gets 20 likes in 1 day. Looks at other girls of similar appearance and sees 1,000, 2,000 and 1,500 likes in one day. How does that girl feel about herself after comparing herself with other Instagram Accounts. She is a bit "chubby" and the other girls are slim so she decides to go on a crash diet within weeks she is on 800 likes on her photos per day. She diets further starving herself for days at a time she is now up there in the 1,500-2000 likes a day. You know here this is heading!

Scenario 2
A rooftop selfie expert has thousands of followers viewing his photos of him taking selfies whilst drunk on the roof of houses in London with the London skyline as a backdrop. He has noticed recently though that the likes have dropped from an average of 3,000 per photo down to 2,200 per photo per day. He decides to really up the stakes and start taking photos from office block rooftops that have better views, after "having a few beers". His likes per photo skyrocket into the tens of thousands and his follower count jumps up in tandem, he is in heaven? He decides to take the ultimate Selfie from the roof of the Shard with a beer in one hand and without any safety harness. You know where this is leading

Scenario 3
An attractive model posts photos of herself regularly and gets on average 1,000 likes per day but has noticed some of her competitors get double this amount but she is fully clothed and they are in bikinis. She decides to try a bikini selfie and her likes skyrocket and she is now level with her other model counterparts. She decides to take things to the next level to show these other models "who´s the boss". We all know the path she is walking down here.

Scenario 4
An activist selfie expert who enjoys taking selfies in the middle of demonstrations and riots gets a lot of views and likes on his selfies but the likes have reached a peak in recent months as other copycats have started to appear and he is wondering how to increase his following and likes, so decides to go to the more extreme riots where guns, grenades and other weapons are being used and more danger is present and the risk of death is very near. Likes increase dramatically. The outcome of this course eventually is clear.

A Personal Story and Experience
I can give loads of other scenarios or examples but here is one I had a personal experience with when I was in the Celebrity Photography game. I had lots of contact with fans and autograph hunters and dealers and knew the lengths they went to to get those autographs and selfies. You just would not believe.

One such autograph hunter and selfie addict tipped yours truly off on a new Fashion store opening in Mayfair. So I went along with him as it was quiet that day, just managed to get a couple of shots of a new emerging star in Leicester Square and that was it. There was the possibility of some big name fashion type such as Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne and Stella McCartney amongst others turning up at this thing. Arrived about 7pm, had been out since 7am. After about 2 hours at this event it was pretty much apparent that nobody of any consequence was going to turn up, even the Security staff hinted that nobody of any importance was going to be there. So 9pm I packed my camera away and called it a day. At that exact moment a chauffeured Bentley or similar turned up and my selfie friend said "get your camera out quick that could be Kate Moss" I turned round and said "No, I`m going home it takes 3 hours to get back and I have to be up in the morning at 5am" He looked at me as if I was mad and I turned round and said these words "My Friend, I´m going home, I really could not care less who is in that car. Don´t let these people take over your life....they will not show any appreciation or thank you for it" He looked at me in shock, it hit home pretty hard. Saw him the next day he said he stayed till 1 or 2 in the morning, saw nothing let alone got a selfie and slept on a park bench in Central London. He looked liked he had not washed or anything. He could not see he had a problem. Luckily I saw the light and packed in Celebrity Photography about a month or two later.

Here is an interesting fact. In August 2014, selfie was officially accepted for use in the word game Scrabble!

Selfie related deaths seems to be on the rise. A recent article from Pricenomics says there has been 49 Selfie related deaths since March 2014. The Telegraph wrote that, in 2015, more people were killed taking selfies than by shark attacks although this is under debate.

The article has a good quote that highlights the general way that Selfie Culture is heading

"It's all about me. It's putting me in the frame. I'm getting attention and when I post that to social media, I'm getting the confirmation that I need from other people that I'm awesome," says lead researcher Jesse Fox. "You're not thinking about the consequences of your actions, so who cares if you're dangling off the side of the Eiffel Tower?" Extract From Pricenomics

Real Life Examples of Selfie Death
Here´s some real examples not fictitious scenarios of Selfie´s taken to the extreme that have resulted in deaths all in the name of Vanity one of the "seven Deadly Sins".

Summary
On the surface we are living in a world where it could be said we literally have "never had it so good". BUT after reading all this, it becomes pretty clear there are some worrying underlying trends that are emerging that have one or more of the "7 Deadly Sins" woven into their very roots. These sins are as relevant today as they were back in Biblical Times. We are living in an increasingly crazy and narcissistic society full of Pride, Arrogance and Vanity being the main drivers, a symptom of the End Times we are living in and Death by Selfie is one of those symptoms. These things on their own are not desirable traits, but it´s where they lead is the disturbing problem and it´s all being driven by the social media explosion we are witnessing around the globe.

If people start to take a selfie while walking in front of a moving train, hanging thousands of feet off the ground from a skyscraper, or handling an actual live grenade, and somehow...... you end up dead, you have got to ask yourself 1. Is this normal behaviour? and 2. What is happening to our world?

The problem is it is "the nature of the beast" in that once people see Selfies that are extreme in nature to get those into orbit views and likes you have to do the same otherwise your normal selfies are a bit "old school" and don´t "cut it" as they used to. That´s the inner workings of the mind of a Selfie Addict.

Personally as followers of this website will know, I have a number of Twitter accounts of which The Twelve Gates @ThatFJ is the biggest one. This account currently has over 16K followers, which is nice but the numbers even now go up and down like a yo yo. Put the wrong tweet out and see the follower count drop, put a good tweet out and watch it go into orbit. Do I lose any sleep about the numbers? Not really which is probably the secret to that accounts success,

I could instead of Tweeting every 2 or 3 hours via laptop and occasionally mobile, tweet every half hour or even every ten minutes and be right on top of the news as it happens and watch the follower count and retweets sky rocket. In reality I tweet what needs to be said and the truth rather than tweeting what people want to hear as it happens within a nano second. I could put pictures of me with the Archbishop of Canterbury or get a Selfie with Theresa May or some major celebrity and the follower count would go into orbit as well, but I know where that would lead and the original purpose of The Twelve Gates Twitter and this website would have been lost in the sake of coolness and vanity and a few extra likes and followers.

Should people stop taking selfies. Of course not, selfies down the pub or a nightclub or on holiday or anything else that is not putting your life at risk is normal behaviour. The problem is when it starts taking over your life to the exclusion of everything else and is leading you to a dark place and becoming an addiction.........that where the real problem lies.

This article is therefore a warning of the evils of this world that are out there. Evil is crafty, seductive and enticing and entices you with "Sin", and as you can see Sin is a dangerous word and not a thing to be messed with. The journey all starts innocently but at the other end in extreme cases can lead to the loss of life!
