Images of Deception: Moses – Part 6

Images of Deception: Moses – Part 6

Hidden History, Images of Deception
“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

“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, Images of Deception
“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...

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, Images of Deception
“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
Necromancy: Psychics, Ghosts, and Spirits of The Dead

Necromancy: Psychics, Ghosts, and Spirits of The Dead

Bible Q&A
Is it possible to talk to the dead? Today I received an interesting comment from a reader named Darryle and he has a few opinions about talking to the dead. He doesn’t believe that it’s possible to talk to the dead and he provided scripture to back up his position. I figured I’d respond publicly so that everyone can benefit from the dialogue. Hi Dante, “We know that God never spoke to Saul again because he never repented. Just like our disobedience today without repentance will prevent the lord from talking to us. That’s the law.” “So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the Word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had familiar spirit, to inquire of it; And inquired not of the lord: ther

“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 The next Biblically inaccurate picture we're going to look at is the battle between David and Goliath. This is perhaps one of the most well known giant stories in history. However, the depictions are always wrong: There are so many things wrong with this picture that I actually had to think about where to start. So let's just start with location: According to the Bible and geography, this battle took place in Arabia, near the Egyptian border. Egypt is in Africa and before it was renamed "The Middle East" in the 1800s, Canaan (Is

“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 The deeper we dig into the plot to hide the true identity of Israel, the more dirt gets dug up, which proves that Psalms 83 happened and continues to be perpetuated in many Bibles. At the end of this study I'm going to give you links to a few other studies that I've done, which will help you start to put together the pieces of this puzzle. But first I want to point out a few key scriptures that allow for a technicality or loophole, which has been used to insert deception into scripture. "Add thou not unto his words, lest he re

Dying To Be Israel: The High Cost of Living In The Holy Land Without Melanin

Race In The Bible
Did you know that Israelis have the second highest rate of melanoma in the world? Well they do (source). Melanoma is a fatal skin cancer that develops as a result of exposure to the sun. Just to give you a perspective on where Israel is located, here's a map. Notice how close it is to Africa. Something Doesn't Add Up According to the CDC black people have the lowest rate of melanoma and white people have the highest rates of melanoma. Here's a chart that comes from the CDC website (source). In the Bible the Hebrews spent almost their entire existence between Africa and Israel without any form of cancer treatments currently available in the modern age. Modern day Israelis are literally dying to live in Israel... which doesn't make sense if they're really the chosen people...
