Images of Deception: Moses – Part 6

Images of Deception: Moses – Part 6

Hidden History
“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 What many people don't realize is that Moses and Paul had one very interesting thing in common... they were both mistaken for African descendants of Ham (Egyptians), even though their lives were separated by nearly 2,000 years. When many people think of Moses, they often think of him as a bearded white man with a long staff. Here's an example of one such depiction of Moses from film: "Now the priest of Midian had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father's flock. And the sh

Images of Deception: The Apostle Paul – Part 5

Hidden History
“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 If you think the cliche images of the apostle Paul are an accurate portrayal of what he really looked like... think again. While we don't have a description of many people in the Bible, Paul is one of the exceptions. According to Europeanized Christianity, the apostle Paul looked like an elderly bearded white man. Here's an image of "Paul" that was posted on Christianity Today without any regard to Biblical accuracy: According to the Bible, the following incident occurred, which gives us a very specific location to reference for

Images of Deception: Christ – Part 4

Hidden History
“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 One of the most widespread and accepted deception is the false European depictions of Christ. Most people will willingly admit that he was absolutely not white, but seem to be OK with continuing to push the lie. Why is it OK to change the race and ethnicity of Christ, but not his gender? If race doesn't matter, then why was his race changed in the first place? If race doesn't matter, then why don't churches protest anything that depicts him falsely? For those that are seekers of truth, we can't help but notice that
27 Bible Verses That Will Rock The Foundations of The Modern Christian Church

27 Bible Verses That Will Rock The Foundations of The Modern Christian Church

Race In The Bible
The Bible covers a wide variety of subjects ranging from agriculture to women being kidnapped and raped by angels. But believe it or not, there are some subjects that even the most outer fringes of the fringe Christian crowd avoid like leprosy. The reason for this is simple... those verses completely re-write a false history that has been shoved down our throats for centuries by Renaissance painters and others. The following scriptures are listed in order exactly as they appear in the King James Bible. The words in bold are for emphasis. Please read the full chapter for complete context. 1) Where Was Eden Really Located? "And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed." - Genesis 2:8 2) The African River of Eden "And the...
Did Farrakhan Just Convert To Christianity?

Did Farrakhan Just Convert To Christianity?

Politics
I've been following this story ever since Farrakhan first posted the following video of him at a Christian church on August 22, 2017. While it is still early, the portion of video he chose to share is devastating to the Islamic beliefs he claims he believed (past tense), as heard in the video. The posting of the video, along with the comment, "I know my redeemer liveth. Jesus is alive", is the exact opposite of what Muslims believe about Christ. Farrakhan also makes the following comment during the video, which has many people suspecting that me may now be a Christian. "I say to the devil, I know I gotta pay a price for what I've been teaching all these years. You can have the money, you can have the clothes, you can have the suit, you can have the house, but me... you can'...
Charlottesville Proves Trump and Republicans are Nothing But Racists

Charlottesville Proves Trump and Republicans are Nothing But Racists

Politics
I've been saying it since Trump first decided to run... nothing good will ever come from his administration. Not one good thing. He's not going to save America with his divisive hate speech that only appealed to good for nothing bigots in the first place. What I don't find odd at all is that white conservatives are 100% silent about white racists running people down with a car, but had a ton to say about BLM. To top it all off, the orange scumbag in chief refused to put the blame on the human refuse white nationalists that caused the violence in the first place. Why hasn't Fox News called these violent white protestors "thugs" like they do to non violent black protestors? Why haven't the "peaceful protest" hypocrites condemned these hateful, violent, racist scumbags yet? ...

Here’s What’s Coming In July

Announcements
If you've been watching the Awakening Network feed, then you know I've been adding content every few days, even if it's not specifically for this site. What you may not know is that I have about 40 different studies in the works, all of which are very in depth and will hopefully help everyone clarify some of the harder parts in the Bible. So here's what to expect across the network for July 2017: Questions and Answers I'm going to focus at least 50% of my time getting caught up on the questions I've been neglecting. If you posted a question, I've read it and responded to it, or I've been putting off responding to it because it coincides with one of the pending studies I'm working on. Next month I'm going to do my best to get through all or most of the questions. Some will b...
The Gap Theory: The Bible and The Age of The Universe

The Gap Theory: The Bible and The Age of The Universe

Bible Q&A
There is a common misconception by non Bible believers that everyone who believes the Bible are Young Earth Creationists (YEC), but that is not the case. There are many believers that accept that the earth may be much older than the 6,000 - 7,000 years commonly pushed by YEC. Old Earth Creationists (OEC) recognize that there are several inconsistencies in the Genesis account, but those inconsistencies only exist if you adhere to YEC. Here are the inconsistencies we'll cover in this study: Earth and water are already present before God says, "let there be light." The creation account in Genesis 1:2 contradicts God's words in Isaiah 45:18 in the YEC model. Jeremiah describes an event that took place on earth, but mentions that "there was no man". Those that adhere...

Images of Deception: The Virgin Mary – Part 3

Hidden History
“Then they fasted that day, and put on sackcloth, and cast ashes upon their heads, and rent their clothes, and laid open the book of the law, wherein the heathen had sought to paint the likeness of their images.”- 1 Maccabees 3:47-48 Images often shape our opinion of how we view heroes, gods, goddesses, and even groups of people in other cultures. I fully believe that much of what we see now is a purposeful and planned deception to hide the truth. In this part we're going to take a look at The Virgin Mary and how her image has changed over time. The Most Common Depiction of The Virgin Mary The above picture shows how Mary has been depicted since the Catholic Church began their crusade to repeal and replace all other images that show the truth. The entire
