John 10:10 King James Version10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
For years on end, I’ve heard preachers and Christians quote this verse stating that the thief mentioned in this verse is referring to Satan, and that he comes to steal and to kill and destroy. Notwithstanding the murderous nature of Satan, please take a good look at the context. Read the previous chapters of John leading into chapter 10 up to verse 10. This is not talking about Satan in the first instance. The immediate reference He made, was to the religious leaders, the Pharisees, Sadducee’s, and Teachers of the Law. Remember how chapter nine was all about the blind man who was healed, and he and his parents were thrown out of the synagogue? In Chapter 10 Jesus compared His teaching and the leadership style of the Good Shepherd with that of the religious clergy. Remember Satan is just a spirit being who would not be an issue at all if people didn’t adopt his lying philosophies. It’s the people on earth who ultimately either yield to truth or lie, light or darkness.
Not all Pharisees, Sadducee’s and Teachers of the Law were echo-centric and dishonest. Of course, there were those who, even though they were stuck in the matrix of a religious system, truly loved God, and wanted to do right unto the people. Their ability to do the right thing would be restrained by that system, but there are always those who are kind-hearted and with a love for the truth will do what they can to serve and value people. However, as you go up the chain of command in the pyramidal structure of control, there will be varying grading’s and levels of evil individuals have committed themselves to. Jesus exposed those who were obsessed with power, who craved the position of honor and whose main objective was controlling the people.
The synagogue of Satan
The larger body of religious leaders were those strangers, thieves, and robbers Jesus spoke of in John 10. They did not protect the people from the wolves. Many of those religious leaders were controlled by the wolves who were the evil individuals at the very top of their hierarchy. They had an appearance of being pious, and portrayed a religious façade but in their hearts, they were strictly devoted to Satan. If you think that I am exaggerating look at what Jesus Himself says about those individuals who formed the religious structure of the day, but in the end was key to the betrayal of Jesus and the persecution of the believers throughout the Roman Empire.
Revelation 2: 9 King James Version
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Those at the top of the religious matrix were part of a conspiratorial group of plotters or intriguers who made a pact to suppress the truth about the resurrection of Christ (Matthew 28:11-15 and Romans 1:18). That’s exactly what the word “Cabal” means.
Merriam-Websters Dictionary defines the word Cabal as: a group of persons secretly united in a plot (as to overturn a government)
Those highest up in the religious ranks had worked their way into strategic influential positions and used their position to gain unlawful control and influence over the people.
They used religion as a powerful hypnotic induction to bind the people with heavy burdens. Of course, the doctrine of these people was Luciferin in its origin. Therefore, we can safely say that they were influenced by Satan and that therefore inference can be drawn that Jesus is indirectly also referring to Satan in John 10:10. But please avoid overlooking the immediate point. When Jesus taught, He set the people free from the evil spell of occult religion. Yes, the religious leaders of the Hebrew people who wanted to suppress the truth of Christ’s resurrection at all costs and maintain control of the people also quoted the verses of the Tanakh and outwardly expressed their devotion to Hashem Adonai. That does not mean that they were truly worshiping Yahweh and the Messiah who was foretold He would come to deliver God’s people. To this day the basic principles of religion are not set up to liberate people and protect their freedom. They are designed to enslave and control. That’s because religion rests on the principle that performance for conformity will earn acceptance. This mentality is psychologically so destructive and divisive, it will turn a person into a slave and reject those who do not perform and comply for acceptance. It is the darkness that becomes the devil’s playground, and that’s why on some level Jesus would also have been indicating that Satan is behind the thieves and wolves of John 10. But that’s why Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He came to set humanity free from the lie of religion.
Just because someone quotes God, or Hashem, which means “the name” does not mean they are referring to Yahweh the creator of Heaven and Earth our Maker. Why was the name Yahweh quoted more than 7000 times in the Tanakh but eventually became too holy to mention? Could there have been a more sinister reason to avoid saying YHWH or Yahweh?
Those who are out and out Luciferins, see lucifer as their god and Yahweh as an imposter. So, when a Luciferin clothed with religious garments quotes God who is he or she referring to? For thousands of years, since the inception of the true Church in the first century devoted Luciferins have infiltrated the organised Church groups with every intention to strategically water down and suppress the truth of the Gospel. Sounds like a conspiracy? Yes, and that’s because it is. Always has been. This conspiracy began in heaven with lucifer when he began his revolt. Following on from that he began poisoning the minds of Adam and Eve until they adopted the idea that by doing something they could become as gods.
Genesis 3: 5 King James Version
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
The word “gods” is translated from the Hebrew plural Eloheem. This has a list of meanings like: angels, divine ones, gods, goddess, godlike ones, rulers, judges and of course the One True God Yahweh. What the serpent was saying in effect was that Adam and Eve were not gods but by eating of the tree (performance) they could become like divine ones. This was a complete lie. The fact is Adam and Eve already were divine ones, rulers and judges. They were sovereign in the Earth with no higher authority above them than Yahweh Himself. They already were “gods”.
John 10: 34 King James Version
34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
Jesus knew very well what His place was when He was here on Earth as a man. He knew He was the second person of Yahweh the Godhead incarnate. But He knew that as a man on Earth He was a divine one, a ruler a judge a man with dominion in the Earth, and therefore sovereign with no higher authority above Himself than God the Father.
The Jews should have known this truth as it is so well laid out in scripture. In John 10:34 Jesus was quoting from Psalm 82: 6.
Psalm 82: 6 King James Version
6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
The lie of self-righteousness, the lie of performance for conformity to earn acceptance, the lie of becoming a super-human or divine one begins with convincing people that they lack all these qualities. Thus, the very notion that you can do something to become accepted before God, by becoming a righteous divine sovereign being begins with the conviction that you are not. This was the original lie of the serpent in the garden of Eden and is the basis for all religion.
In conversations about faith I often must explain to people how I define religion. So here I present my definition for the word religion once again:
Religion is man’s belief about what they must do to become acceptable before a perceived deity, which is really the belief of what man can do to achieve a state of divinity without God.
Adam and Eve already were divine ones, they already were sovereign. Yet, they ignored the truth about themselves and traded the truth in for a lie. They could have told the serpent to go back into hole he crawled out of. The serpent, i.e. satan would not have been able to do anything about it. Remember Satan can do absolutely nothing in this physical world unless people yield to his influence by their own consent.
Thousands of years later Jesus comes on the scene and takes charge and stands in His sovereignty as a man. Adam forgot the truth about himself and yielded to Satan’s lie and sold humanity into slavery to sin, which gave Satan easy access to operate through man. Jesus the last Adam stood in the truth about Himself and redeemed humanity out of slavery to sin, and thereby shut the door to Satan’s influence. If we stand in the truth of our sovereignty in Christ, we remain free from Satan’s influence.
Through one man ignoring the truth about himself the door was opened to Satan. Through one man standing in the truth about himself the door was closed to Satan. We must realise that it is down to what people do that determines the state of our world even to this day. We all have responsibility to stand for the truth within the capacity God has given each one.
I had this conversation with a young lady at work the other day about climate change and electric cars. I explained that we put great emphasis on transitioning to all electric cars, but the fact is that the production of electric cars, specifically the batteries cause more pollution than the cars that run on fossil fuels. Even if you question that statement, it is a double standard when emphasis is laid on a cleaner environment but know that millions of very poor people, including young children have to work in the dangerous conditions of the cobalt and lithium quarries. More than one million children are engaged in child labor in mines and quarries. This a serious violation of children’s rights that puts children’s health and safety at risk and deprives them of an education. Much of the minerals mined by children end up in global supply chains, including those of automobiles, banking, construction, cosmetics, electronics, and jewelry. In some areas the problem is particularly acute. Research indicates that, in Burkina Faso and Niger, some 30-50 percent of the gold mine workforce is comprised of children; most are under the age of 15, and some work under conditions of forced labor.
Child labour is also found in cobalt and coltrane mines, which produce the minerals used in portable electronic devices and rechargeable batteries, including the batteries of electric cars. More than half of the world’s supply of cobalt comes from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where children, some as young as seven years of age, work in life-threatening conditions, subject to violence, extortion, and intimidation. This cobalt is used to build the lithium batteries sold by major multinational companies.
I said to this young lady, “I heard you speak about your young daughter, who is less than 10 years old. You called her your baby. Would you be ok with you baby to work in one of those mines 16 hours a day for the sake of a greener planet?” Her answer: “Oh I don’t want to know”.
I said “that’s right, I get it, it’s a hard truth to accept, you choose to ignore this horrible reality and rather accept the illusion that we are improving our world with changing to electric cars. Ignorance is not when you don’t know the truth. Ignorance is the act of ignoring the truth that you know”.
Our human history is filled with the pain and the horrors of abuse and manipulation, murder, and genocide of whole peoples. Although Satan has been the orchestrator behind the scenes of these atrocities, it was the people at the top of the empires, kingdoms, religious organisations, governments, corporations, and organisations who issued their directives upon their subjects to be carried out. Those directives had to be executed by the agents in service of those who gave the orders.
In a 1962 letter, as a final effort for clemency, Holocaust organizer Adolf Eichmann wrote that he and other low-level officers were “forced to serve as mere instruments,” shifting the responsibility for the deaths of millions of Jews to his superiors. The “just following orders” defense, made famous in the post-WWII Nuremberg trials, featured heavily in Eichmann’s court hearings but in the end is absolutely no justification for the atrocious acts that were committed.
The “Nuremberg defense” offers one extreme example, though it is often dismissed as merely an attempt to avoid responsibility. But that same year Stanley Milgram, a Yale University psychologist, conducted a series of famous experiments that tested whether “ordinary” folks would inflict harm on another person after following orders from an authoritative figure. Shockingly, the results suggested any human was capable of a heart of darkness.
Milgram’s classic laboratory studies reported widespread obedience to an instruction to harm, suggesting that social coercion may alter mechanisms of voluntary agency, and hence abolish the normal experience of being in control of one’s own actions.
The study, published in the journal Current Biology, described this distance as people experiencing their actions more as “passive movements rather than fully voluntary actions” when they follow orders. What the study shows is that if we allow ourselves to enter a state of cognitive dissonance, we could fall into the trap of just following orders, and become the person who forces others who don’t comply to be isolated, to wear a badge, be put on a train, and to be taken to a camp somewhere out of sight.
These actions may not truly reflect the persons beliefs, but they also believe they have no choice in the matter, and they are after all only following orders of their superiors. That person may go home in the evening and be the most loving husband, wife, father or mother, yet they were instrumental in the progression of a holocaust. This is called cognitive dissonance. Cognitive dissonance is the mental conflict that occurs when a person’s behaviors and beliefs do not align. That state of mind causes feelings of unease and tension, and people attempt to relieve this discomfort in different ways. Examples include “explaining things away” or rejecting new information that conflicts with their existing beliefs.
Each of us have the responsibility to judge information presented to us for its accuracy and then base our choices and actions upon that truth we can verify. It takes a genuine level of integrity and commitment to truth. This means that we must be willing to be wrong with regards to our views, opinions and perceptions.
I don’t know who said it but credit to the one who did.
Some are moved by reason, others by passion, and the rest are moved by necessity.
Most people who are told that they cannot keep their employment if they don’t comply with a directive which they believe holds no justified basis, will still obey the directive because they want to keep their job. Their necessity to keep paying the household bills, will move them to yield to the coercion exercised upon them.
Others are moved by their desire to go on holidays or go out to a club or concert to have a good time. They will compromise their own integrity and yield to the pressure of coercion to obey directives to comply with conditions so they can go on holiday and do these things.
Those who can take a step back and allow reason to guide logic will test the validity and legality of the directives and mandates imposed. They may be the ones who will either obey and support those rules because they believe they are the right thing to do. Or they may also be those who examined all available evidence and their conclusions and commitment to the truth might cause them to challenge the establishment and encourage change.
Crimes against humanity have always been committed by evil persons at the top of corrupt hierarchies, but they could only be executed by those who obeyed the orders. When people begin to realize their powerful position in this world as divine one’s who are sovereign with no higher authority over them other than God Himself, we can begin to reclaim our freedom. The result will be that those who are committed to evil at the top of their illusory matrix will lose control.
Governments of any nation in this world are not superior to the people they serve, but the people are sovereign and superior to their government and have the responsibility to hold their governments accountable to fulfil their duty to serve the people. A government which maintains a sovereign position over the people gives free reign to those committed to evil at the top.
With regards to wars, pandemics, crisis of all kinds, when someone tells me that these things are God’s judgment and that we are punished as nations for our sins, here’s what needs to be recognized: Since the days of Jesus, and even way back to the days of Babylon all the way to Cain the first murderer a Cabal of evil individuals worked tirelessly behind the scenes with the one goal to implement lucifer’s plan for control of the world. This Cabal still exists today. Today, they are not the Pharisees, or Sadducee’s, or Teachers of the Law. They can be from any race, background, or walk of life although the core orchestrator’s claim to have kept a pure lineage from those ancient days of Cain.
The cabal manufactured many of the world’s problems. They engineered endless wars, they flooded drugs into the streets of our cities, they filled our church buildings, Parliament buildings, abortion clinics, Government buildings, cities, and towns with their occult symbolism and influence. They filled our TV screens with Movies and TV series promoting occultism and satanism and laced Mainstream Media with hypnotic embedded technology in their propaganda.
Matthew 12: 34 King James Version
34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
Jesus was addressing the Pharisees and religious leaders, I mean he called them a generation of vipers. This implies that Jesus recognised their lineage and traced it back to the serpent in the garden of Eden.
John 8: 44 King James Version
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
These are serious allegations. We cannot ignore the thread of scriptures stating that there is a group of people, at least in Jesus’ day, whom he traces to the lineage of the serpent, of whom He said that the Devil is their father, and that together they formed the synagogue of Satan.
Throughout the Old Testament there is an overwhelming amount of evidence showing the apostate condition the Hebrew people fell into each time when they committed even worser acts than all the pagan practices of their neighbouring nations.
Isaiah 1: 10 King James Version
10 Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
Again and again, they fell into the worship of Baal and Molech. This practice consisted of human sacrifice mostly of children. You can’t really flower this up. It was complete Satan worship. Who put the Hebrew people up to it? Who was in charge? Who gave the mandates and directives? Who executed the orders? Who was at the top of the governance, and who were those that were in a state of cognitive dissonance and felt like they had no other choice but to obey?
Roots of the Cabal
Genesis 6: 1-8 King James Version
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
I have read several Theological views on this topic of the Nephilim or giants. Now some will theorise that these were just powerful men. But I don’t see that this is necessarily a point where scripture is interpreted as symbolical or pictorial literary style. I believe this is a literal depiction of what happened in a far back ancient history. These sons of God were angelic being who chose to commit these rebellious acts.
There is in my view more than enough reason to take the book of Enoch more serious. Especially since it may provide explanations to a great many mysteries of our world. Why was it not included in our current Canon of Scriptures? There will have to be further research and studies to answer some of these questions. For the purpose of this article I have listed some of the key paragraphs that give us an insight into what may have happened in a very ancient world.
The Book of Enoch [not part of the Biblical Canon]
6.1 And it came to pass, when the sons of men had increased, that in those days there were born to them fair and beautiful daughters. 6.2 And the Angels, the sons of Heaven, saw them and desired them. And they said to one another: “Come, let us choose for ourselves wives, from the children of men, and let us beget, for ourselves, children.” 6.3 And Semyaza, who was their leader, said to them: “I fear that you may not wish this deed to be done and that I alone will pay for this great sin.” 6.4 And they all answered him, and said: “Let us all swear an oath, and bind one-another with curses, so not to alter this plan, but to carry out this plan effectively.” 6.5 Then they all swore together and all bound one another with curses to it.
7.1 And they took wives for themselves and everyone chose for himself one each. And they began to go into them and were promiscuous with them. And they taught them charms and spells, and they showed them the cutting of roots and trees. 7.2 And they became pregnant and bore large giants. And their height was three thousand cubits. 7.3 These devoured all the toil of men; until men were unable to sustain them. 7.4 And the giants turned against them in order to devour men. 7.5 And they began to sin against birds, and against animals, and against reptiles, and against fish, and they devoured one another’s flesh, and drank the blood from it. 7.6 Then the Earth complained about the lawless ones.
8.1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and daggers, and shields, and breastplates. And he showed them the things after these, and the art of making them; bracelets, and ornaments, and the art of making up the eyes, and of beautifying the eyelids, and the most precious stones, and all kinds of coloured dyes. And the world was changed. 8.2 And there was great impiety, and much fornication, and they went astray, and all their ways became corrupt. 8.3 Amezarak taught all those who cast spells and cut roots, Armaros the release of spells, and Baraqiel astrologers, and Kokabiel portents, and Tamiel taught astrology, and Asradel taught the path of the Moon. 8.4 And at the destruction of men they cried out; and their voices reached Heaven.[Chapter 15]
15.8 And now, the giants who were born from body and flesh will be called Evil Spirits on the Earth, and on the Earth will be their dwelling. 15.9 And evil spirits came out from their flesh, because from above they were created, from the Holy Watchers was their origin and first foundation. Evil spirits they will be on Earth and ‘Spirits of the Evil Ones’ they will be called. 15.10 And the dwelling of the Spirits of Heaven is Heaven, but the dwelling of the spirits of the Earth, who were born on the Earth, is Earth. 15.11 And the spirits of the giants do wrong, are corrupt, attack, fight, break on the Earth, and cause sorrow. And they eat no food, do not thirst, and are not observed. 15.12 And these spirits will rise against the sons of men, and against the women, because they came out of them during the days of slaughter and destruction.
16.1 And the death of the giants, wherever the spirits have gone out from their bodies, their flesh will be destroyed, before the Judgment. Thus they will be destroyed until the Day of the Great Consummation is accomplished, upon the Great Age, upon the Watchers and the impious ones.”
Some speculations of what demons are verses fallen angels do seem to be addressed here. I stated in previous articles that it makes no difference what they are, they must all bow to the name of Jesus. This is true. But it does clarify some things for me. Rather than speculate that demons are the human spirits of a fallen race that lived pre-Genesis 1:2 when the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. As though Genesis 1 is not the story of creation but the story of re-creation I believe the book of Enoch gives us a better and more plausible explanation. I do not believe the ancient monolithic structures on Earth were build by just tens of thousands of slaves, neither do I believe that they were put there by aliens from other planets. What seems much more likely is that these giants built those structures to be used to mobilize cosmic energy for their evil purposes. Especially when you consider the superior secret knowledge, they possessed was handed down to them from the watchers. In 1 Enoch, they were “great giants, whose height was three hundred cubits. “A Cubit being 18 inches (45 centimetres), this would make them 442 ft 10 61/64 inch tall (137.16 metres).
The Quran refers to the people of Ād in Quran 26:130 whom the prophet Hud declares to be like jabbarin (Hebrew: gibborim), probably a reference to the Biblical Nephilim. The people of Ād are said to be giants, the tallest among them a hundred feet high. However, according to Islamic legend, the ʿĀd were not wiped out by the flood since some of them had been too tall to be drowned. Instead, God destroyed them after they rejected further warnings.
Haha, I know, this sounds like Game of Thrones. But consider the possibility that there may be something to all of this.
And now back to solid ground and familiar text.
Genesis 11: 1-9 King James Version
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
The people of Babel were taught in the science of blood sacrifice, the knowledge of manipulating the earths electromagnetic fields and making use of the stellar and cosmic energies and how to influence the corporate human consciousness by means of hypnosis and witchcraft. They used this secret occult knowledge to build their society and frame their mystery Babylon Religion. Who was it that taught them this knowledge? It was the accumulative knowledge and sciences the watchers taught their offspring the giants. The giants if some survived the flood taught the Syrians and Babylonians. If non of the giants survived the flood, then their spirits would roam the earth according to Enoch. These Babylonians would have known how to retrieve this secret knowledge from those spirits.
I am really summarising what is a huge topic here. My point is John the Baptist and as stated, Jesus both identified some of the evil religious leaders as direct descendants and offspring of something evil. This evil offspring has always been around. They used ancient secret sciences of witchcraft to affect their evil influence upon the world. Their goal has always been to gain control of this planet and make humanity their subservient slaves under a complete totalitarian system. They moved on from the days of Jesus and made sure they infiltrated every influential platform of human societies across the world. They are the Cabal of several groups of people who claim to have their direct lineages to these ancient people or even those fallen angels and their evil hybrid race of giants. Those who believe themselves to be of such lineage are here today and they are among us. They are some of our well-known political leaders and celebrities, but generally they prefer to stay out of the public eye and limelight and operate their sinister plans in the background. Still, whatever it is they think they are. It makes no difference. Satan, demons of giants, direct lineages from giants and ancient Babylon and serpents, they are incapacitated and have no power when all over the world people of integrity stand for the truth by their sovereignty and liberty in Christ.
Through the right kind of Prayer and strategic action by getting involved in our local communities sharing the truth and love of God the cabal’s grip is completely lost. Get rid of the Cabal everywhere and as a result, this world will improve in spectacular ways.
