See A Voice Crying in the Wilderness:
The Mission Luke 4:17-21: Jesus opened the book and read from Isaiah(61): "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised." When Jesus finished reading he sat down and said, "This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears."
The Voice Crying in The Wilderness; The Days of Jeremiah; The End is here, Find Jesus Now!
The Lord has placed it on my heart to shout out: HEAR People, LISTEN UP! GET READY!
PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD!!!
Voice of one crying in the wilderness.
Evangelical Christians mostly of whom are Trump minions and MAGA need to wake up. The peace plan calls for the dividing of Jerusalem.
In the bigger picture this insanity is more proof we're indeed in the last days
Isaiah 40:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
800 YEARS LATER
John The Baptist Proclaimed and fulfilled this prophecy
Matthew 3:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight

11 Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree
The Lord is Using the Prophet, Jeremiah, in these last Moments...
Why are we not listening?
God Has Been Sending A Final Warning! As were the days of Jeremiah, the Prophet, so now stands the inhabitants of the Earth.
For Links to the Book of Jeremiah (King James Version) and Commentary see End Notes below.
As Matthew Henry notes in his Jeremiah commentary: “God is pleased to give warning of his judgments beforehand, that sinners may be awakened to meet him by repentance, and so turn away his wrath, and that, if they do not, they may be left.”
Jeremiah the Prophet warned the deaf ears for 40 years and Judgement came.
Here’s actual script of God’s judgment in Jeremiah: Chapter 11: 11: Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. 12Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the gods unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble. 13For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal. 14Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.
Dr. Lightfoot observes that as Moses was so long (40 years) with the people, a teacher in the wilderness, till they entered into their own land, Jeremiah was so long in their own land a teacher, before they went into the wilderness of the heathen: and he thinks that therefore a special mark is set upon the last forty years of the iniquity of Judah, which Ezekiel bore forty days, a day for a year, because during all that time they had Jeremiah prophesying among them, which was a great aggravation of their impenitency. God, in this prophet, suffered their manners, their ill manners, forty years, and at length swore in his wrath that they should not continue in his rest.
The number 40 has great significance in the Bible:
The number 40 is used 159 times in the Bible. The bible translation of the number 159 literally means “Idol Worship or Loving Oneself” in Hebrew and “The Culprit, The Cause of the Crime” in Greek. The meaning of the number 40 itself in the Bible is Trial, Testing, Or Judgment: Example:
When God destroyed every living thing on the Earth by flood, it rained 40 days and 40 nights (Gen 7:4,12,17).
Today we are in the year 2019. Looking back 40 years ago to 1979 we can see 3 significant events clearly seen as preparing the way of the Lord
1. Anwar al-Sadat, Menachem Begin and Jimmy Carter sign the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty in Washington, D.C...
2. The Carter Malaise Speech This kind of summarized a lot of other statements: “Mr. President, we are confronted with a moral and a spiritual crisis. Read full speech here for a hair raising reality of where we are now:
3. In on June 9th, 1979, on the day of Pentecost in 2019 The Philadelphia (The Church of Phi
Philadelphia) Phillies (short for Philadelphia) wear burgundy uniforms for the 1st and last time. Burgundy = Shade of Red - Crimson
The Rapture and the Church of Philadelphia
Jeremiah's day compared to 2019 from 1979:
1. Meaningless peace agreements had been made by Israel completing 40 years it became a mockery
2. Israel's terrible malaise had worsened, yet false prophets kept saying Israel would be restored to greatness. MAGA?
3. The Blood of The Lamb by means of Redemption - getting back with God and repenting had been rejected.
Last year in 2018 it had been 40 years since 1978: Look at what happened last year. 1 year later we cry out that Time Has Run Out!
Today we are in the year 2018. Looking back 40 years to 1978 and coming to 2018, we can see at least two significant events clearly seen in Jeremiah as follows: Idolatry the worship of other gods Baal who the children of Israel in their open sexual perversion and adultery murdered their unwanted children by placing them in the fire. Jeremiah 7:31.(Todays open fully funded abortion factories) . Who made cakes and drink offerings to the Queen of Heaven. Jeremiah 7:17, 44:15-17, and taking the truth of God’s law and perverting it into their own will into the depths of depravity and pleasures of the flesh..Jeremiah 23:36.
The sin which they are most particularly charged with here is idolatry, forsaking the true God, their own God, for other false gods. (Matthew Henry Commentary on Jeremiah)
2 SIGNIFICANT EVENTS - 40 YEARS AGO TO TODAY existing as the essence of Jeremiah the Prophet of God:
FIRST: NIV BIBLE PUBLISHED in 1978: Perverting the Words of the Living God done by none other than The Vatican, the Great Whore of Babylon. Revelation 17. The same who is judged over and over again in Jeremiah of the IDOL WORSHIP of THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN FROM SAME AS BABYLON. This is Mary.
If the Lord wanted Mary to be lifted up and be worshiped, He would NOT have allowed Mary to get Married and have other Children!!!!
Out of the Lord Jesus own Mouth, he called her Woman. Then in the same BREATH gave her a scolding for bothering him.
Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. (KJV) biblegateway.com
Why would our Lord Jesus address His mother like this? Unless she was anything other than flesh that was used for a purpose. And that purpose was to give Birth to He who would never see corruption and never sin. Who would die and take on the sins of the world?
And anyone who knows the previous statement as the truth, then holds Mary anything higher is calling Jesus a liar.
For Mary, she herself a sinner, who would die and see corruption. Could NEVER be held up. Mary is just like the rest of us, who needs to be redeemed by the Blood of Jesus. Nothing more, nothing less.
Also, JEREMIAH 23:36 warns with a curse upon those who Pervert and change God’s word: Kjv to NIV in 1978. See Endnotes on The Vatican and Catholic Church represented as today’s primary system of Idolatry under the holy guise of religion. In 1978, 40 years ago this year, The New International Version Bible was first published stands to this day as a watershed moment as an outrageous and most vile attack on the Body of Christ. This perverted bible translation literally perverted the words of the living God. Note: The centerpiece of Jeremiah’s outcry was perverting God’s Law, His word. See: Jeremiah 23:36 http://ebible.com/kjv/Jeremiah/23/36/-/23/40 . The false prophets had people believing they represented God in holy ritual traditions and perverted the truth over and over again. The changing of the King James Bible and writing “new” “modern” “easy to understand” “more relevant” “user friendly” translations of God’s word is exactly what God hated and hates today. If you don’t believe a modern translation is perverting God’s word read and study for yourself.
There are numerous references proving this point. In the Endnotes below PERVERTED BIBLE TRANSLATION we will list a few, but and an example of some of the most egregious is taking the Divinity of Jesus Christ and calling Jesus Christ Satan. The NIV was written by the full support and approval and involvement of the Vatican, the Catholic Church using the perverted Greek Manuscripts after the Vatican lost the war against destroying the King James Bible. FACT! Please see Endnotes: “Catholic Church Queen Of Heaven and Baal Worship” and in all false religions going back to the beginning of mankind.
SECOND: ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN’s Speech at Harvard University. VERITAS - The Warning of refusing to see that moral decay without a spiritual compass. See Endnotes below on quote from his speech and how God used a secular scholar to warn those with ears to hear along the same major theme of Jeremiah’s plea.
A sample of the debauchery hedonism and utter moral decay of mankind spoken of in Jeremiah:
So impudent and violent was their lust, so impatient of check, and so eager to be gratified, that they became perfect beasts (v. 8); like high-fed horses, they neighed every one after his neighbour’s wife, v. 8. Unbridled lusts make men like natural brute beasts, such monstrous odious things are they. And that which aggravated their sin was that it was the abuse of God’s favours to them: When they were fed to the full, then their lusts grew thus furious. Fulness of bread was fuel to the fire of Sodom’s lusts. Sine Cerere et Bacchio friget Venu—Luxurious living feeds the flames of lust. (Matthew Henry Commentary on Jeremiah)
When one reads carefully the book of Jeremiah one finds the hopeless mania of cyclic Cause and Effect translated: Sin and Punishment - Judgement. This maddening cycle is repeated in Jeremiah over and over and throughout the Bible, to show the utter depravity of mankind and his inability to break this cycle to end up in punishment. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 .
However, something most powerful takes place in the book of Jeremiah. Yet, nestled in the book of Jeremiah God provides the absolute solution, Jeremiah chapters 30 and 31. This solution is what could be called the refiner’s fire and fuller’s soap scrubbing of Malachi 3:2: “But who may abide the day of his coming? And who shall stand when he appeareth? For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
through the ultimate threshing of the full fury of God’s wrath during the Tribulation, the time of Jacob’s trouble, to the final outcome of the Law being written in their hearts (Jeremiah 31:31-34); which in essence is the absolute remedy to sin and death which is Jesus Christ and Him Crucified 1 Corinthians 2:2: For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
I have been deeply moved- stirred in spirit - Acts 17:16, 17- as was Paul in Athens. To warn people that time has run out; to repent and get saved now. That salvation is found in only Jesus Christ alone. Acts 4:12: King James Bible. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
The truth is that without God mankind is doomed to eternal damnation. There are only two roads in life. The broad road that leads to destruction and the way less traveled that leads to life. The Absolute truth is Jesus Christ and without Jesus Christ, mankind is doomed.
Here's exactly what is happening now:
These things here are but a mere sample of what is increasing in both intensity and frequency.
Acts of God - Natural Disasters
Crime and unspeakable violence
Decreases in Quality of life and Living Standards
Revival of the occult
Decreased Economic stability
Severe income inequality
Here is what's going to happen any day now, from now at any moment:
The Rapture also known as the Gathering Up, Catching away of the Body of Christ, the True Christians who are not playing religion but are truly in a relationship with Jesus Christ: (Questions about your salvation? See EndNotes Below on Salvation) Description: There will be a loud sound come from the sky that will sound like a loud voice, a shout from the archangel Gabriel, then the a blast of a Trumpet which is God's voice. 1 Thessalonians 4:16, Corinthians 15:51 See Exodus ... describing the voice of God. Truly saved go home…
If you are not saved. then…..
2. Tribulation describe briefly as follows:
Just as mentioned above, God has a final solution to mankind’s inability to completely follow His law and live a moral life. Jesus Christ is that solution. For the stiffnecked people who refuse to accept Jesus Christ and or have fallen prey to the false religions thinking they are pleasing God, These people will go through the time of Jacob’s Trouble primarily for the unrepentant stiff necked Jews who refused Jesus Christ as their Messiah. The Gentiles (non Jews who are not raptured will go through this horrific period of time known as the Tribulation. Tribulation is a period of 7 years described step by step in the book Of Revelation. The Tribulation is a time of horrific supernatural events and disaster upon the earth of the likes which God describes as never has been or ever will be again. It is a time when God’s divine wrath is poured out upon all mankind who are unrighteous and not saved by the blood of Jesus Christ. Only those who are chosen by God to find mercy and repent to find salvation will be saved and will not take the mark of the Beast from the Antichrist.
Here is a detailed chronological chain of events, complete with Bible references and Commentary:
THE TRIBULATION FOLLOWING THE RAPTURE OF THE BODY OF CHRIST
Just as Goliath taunted Israel for 40 days and nights (1 Sam 17:16), until David defeated him God defeat - utterly destroy all of His enemies when Jesus Christ returns with the Saints mounted on White Horses during the 2nd Advent of Jesus Christ.
At this point, Jesus Christ will establish His earthly Kingdom for 1,000 years ruling in complete control and righteousness with His Saints. For further study of the Millennial Rule, the Great White Throne Judgement and Eternal State Please refer to this link:
Please take a moment to seriously pause and ask yourself if you’re saved and if you die today or if the Rapture happens right now, are you going to Heaven? If you honestly can not answer YES, PLEASE STOP AND REPENT AND ASK JESUS CHRIST TO SAVE YOU. SEE LINK BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION ON SALVATION…

The final number we will look at is the number "40." This number is used 159 times in the Bible. Those who assign meaning to this number are generally agreed that it is a number symbolizing trial, testing, or judgment. This certainly seems to be borne out in a number of places in the Bible, however, it also is used for more than that. Let's first look at the ways it could be taken as a number signifying trial, testing, or judgment, then we will look some other significant uses.
Trial, Testing, Or Judgment:

The spies that Moses sent to spy out the Promised Land were there for 40 days (Num 13:25)(Num 14:34).
One of those spies was Joshua, and he was forty years old when he went (Josh 14:7).
Moses died when he was 120 years old (Deut 34:7). His life can be divided into 3 sections of 40 years: (first 40) being born and growing up in Pharaoh's house in Egypt (Acts 7:20-23), (middle 40) fleeing to Midian after killing the Egyptian, and living there for 40 years (Acts 7:29-30), (last 40) returning to Egypt, the exodus, and the events that followed (Acts 7:36)(Ex 7:7).

QUEEN OF HEAVEN - BAAL WORSHIP AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TODAY
WORSHIP OF THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN
By Loren Davis
The Babylonian Religion started at the time of the Tower of Babel. It was called the religion of Baal. Baal came from the name Baalzebub which is a name for Satan.
One of the prominent things in Baal worship is their worship of goddesses. The Baal religion believed in many gods and that GOD WAS ALSO A WOMAN. THE VIRGIN and in particular THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN was looked to as a goddess.
The constellation VIRGO was known as the female deity, THE BEAUTIFUL VIRGIN who was worshipped by the ancients. Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac. VIRGO is the SUN SIGN of ASTROLOGY.
Astrology's connection with Baal and goddess worship are some of the reasons why God is so strongly against astrology. Isa 47:13
The female deity Ishtar of Babylon was a Baal high priestess. She was also known as THE VIRGIN who was worshipped. She had the title the Queen of Heaven, and was known as the goddess of fertility. In Baal they had many temple priestesses who served as temple prostitutes. Having sex with a temple prostitute was a part of Baal worship.
Ishtar was known as the goddess of love, war, fertility and sexuality. In the Babylonian temple, she "was looked to as the divine personification of the planet Venus". Ishtar'scult involved sacred prostitution because sexual immorality was an part of their religion.
In her youth it is said that the goddess ISHTAR had loved TAMMUZ THE SUN GOD of the Baal religion.
ACTS12:4. REFERS TO THE 'WINTER SOLSTICE' CELEBRATION. IT WAS AT THIS TIME OF YEAR WE KNOW AS EASTER, WHEN ISHTAR, THE VIRGIN QUEEN OF HEAVEN WAS CELEBRATED. WINTER SOLSTICE WAS THE TIME OF YEAR WHEN THERE WAS THE GREATEST SEXUAL IMMORALITY BECAUSE THIS IMMORALITY WAS A PART OF THEIR WORSHIP TO ISHTAR. A WINTER SOLSTICE IS STILL A MAJOR RELIGIOUS HOLIDAY. THIS IS THE REASON THAT THE SPRINGTIME HOLIDAY CELEBRATIONS ARE TO THIS DAY WHEN THE MOST PARTYING AND SEXUAL IMMORALITY GOES ON.
The WORSHIP OF THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN is an ancient practice which started thousands of years before Christ was born.
WORSHIP OF this pagan QUEEN OF HEAVEN is talked about in the scriptures.
*Jeremiah 44:25… "burn incense to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN."
THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN ISHTAR has been identified with the Phoenician goddess ASTARTE; the Semitic goddess ASHTORETH; the goddess ISIS of Egypt; the goddess of GREECE was APHRODITE, and the goddess VENUS of Rome. These goddesses in these different nations are actually the same Babylonian goddess ISHTAR, but they were just given different names in the different nations. They were all called THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN. The goddess ASHTAROTH is TALKED ABOUT IN THE BIBLE. Ashtaroth was also called the Queen of Heaven. ASHTAROTH also was a mother figure. She was portrayed CRADLING BAAL. Ashtaroth was known as THE GODDESS OF LUST.
ISRAEL became corrupted by worshipping the SUN GOD Tammuz and The Queen of Heaven ASHTAROTH. Ezek 8:14
*Judges 10:6 "And the children of ISRAEL DID EVIL again in the sight of the LORD, and SERVED BAALIM AND ASHTAROTH…and forsook the LORD, "
*1 Samuel 7:3 "And Samuel spake unto all the house of Israel, saying, If ye do return unto the LORD with all your hearts, then PUT AWAY the strange gods and ASHTAROTH (the Queen of Heaven) from among you, and prepare your hearts unto the LORD, and serve him only:
*1 Samuel 12:10 "And they cried unto the LORD, and said, We have sinned, because we have forsaken the LORD, and have served BAALIM and ASHTAROTH: but now deliver us out of the hand of our enemies, and we will serve thee."
ADULTERY, FORNICATION, & PROSTITUTION are an integral part of Baal worship.
*Jeremiah 5:7 "How shall I pardon thee for this? thy children have forsaken me, and sworn by them that are no gods: when I had fed them to the full, they then COMMITTED ADULTERY, and assembled themselves by troops in the HARLOT'S HOUSES".
The Baal religion was exported from Babylon to Egypt. In Egypt ISIS was also called The Virgin; The Queen of Heaven. Isis was a prostitute high priestess in the Temple of Baal in Egypt.
Egyptians thought that it was ISIS who put the Pharoahs into power.
ISIS was also worshipped as the patroness of nature and magic. She was worshipped throughout the GREEK AND ROMAN WORLD.
ASHTAROTH was THE CANAANITES Virgin, Queen of Heaven who was their goddess of fertility, love, and war exactly like Ishtar and Isis. 1 Kings 11:5-6, 33; 2 Kings 23:13
The Egyptians gave Ashtaorth the title "Queen of Heaven" and "Lady of Heaven". The Babylonians and Assyrians called her Ashtar and worshiped her as the goddess of fertility and love. Jeremiah 7:18-19
The IsraelitesThe Egyptians gave Ashtaorth the title "Queen of Heaven" and "Lady of Heaven". The Babylonians and Assyrians called her Ashtar and worshiped her as the goddess of fertility and love. Jeremiah 7:18-19
The Israelites worshiped Ashtaroth. When Solomon was old he promoted the worship of the Queen of Heaven Ashtaroth (1 Kings 11:5 ). Later Josiah destroyed the shrines built to her (2 Kings 23:13 ).
In ISLAM Mohammad's daughter FATIMA is called QUEEN OF HEAVEN. It's interesting to note that some Catholic churches are named "OUR LADY OF FATIMA".
WORSHIP OF THE VIRGIN AND THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN ENTERED CHRISTIANITY under CONSTANTINE A SUN WORSHIPPER. Constantine gave the great Roman temples and shrines of their Queens of Heaven, the goddesses Fortuna and Diana, to Rome's Christian Church. He had these pagan temples 'christianized' them by renaming them after MARY. Some Christian churches are called "NOTRE DAME", a French word which means "OUR LADY". "Notre Dame" or "Our Lady" are applied to Fortuna, Diana, Madonna, Isis, Ishtar, Fatima, Mary and any other goddess.
It was not until the Fourth Century under Constantine that Mary began to be looked upon with goddess status and people started WORSHIPPING HER and OFFERING HER CAKES at shrines to her just like was done to Ishtar, Isis, Ashtaroth and the others that held the title Queen of Heaven.
*Jeremiah 44:19 "And when we burned incense to THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we MAKE HER CAKES TO WORSHIP HER, and pour out drink offerings unto her,"
MARYOLOGY did not become an official doctrine in the Roman Church until 431 A.D. It's interesting that Maryology started at EPHESUS. EPHESUS, TURKEY is the city which had been the headquarters of the pagan GODDESS DIANA. (Acts 19:27-28, 34-35)
NIMROD, Noah's great grandson, was the founder of the Baal religion. Nimrod's wife was SEMARAMIS. Semaramis was supposed to have conceived Tammuz after Nimrod died, so Semamaris told everyone that Tammuz' birth was a miracle, because she said she did not conceive him natural from a man, but that Tammuz was conceived by the SUN GOD. (The Sun God was a part of Baal worship. Ex. 8:16). Semaramis said that because of this, she conceived Tammuz as a virgin, so she told everyone that TAMMUZ WAS THE SON OF GOD. This shows when and where the phrases THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, THE MOTHER OF GOD, and MADONNA originated. (It would be impossible for Semaramis to be a virgin because she had previously been married to Nimrod and had also served as a temple prostitute).
Saying Semaramis bore Tammuz as a virgin, and that Tammuz was the son of God, was nothing but Satan, counterfeiting what God was going to do using Mary to bring God's ONLY BEGOTTEN SON Jesus Christ (Jn 3:16) into the world. Jesus was conceived by the Holy Ghost and NOT by the Sun God. Semaramis' claim, which was fraudulent, WOULD HAVE MADE TAMMUZ THE SON OF SATAN HIMSELF.
SEMARAMIS was also known as BAALTI, a name which was derived from Baal. In English BAALTI means, " MY LADY". My Lady in Latin is "MEA DOMINA," which became known as MADONNA.
Constantine transferred these pagan titles to MARY. So the titles THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, MY LADY, MADONNA AND MOTHER OF GOD that were given to Mary were not Christian titles, but titles derived from the Baal goddesses. Integrating goddess worship with the worship of Jesus greatly confused and corrupted Christianity. This goddess inclusion opened the door for Christianity to be accepted throughout the world.
It is incredible that Mary, the mother of Jesus, a godly and virtuous woman, was given Semaramis' titles, seeing that Semaramis was a prostitute and was Baal's 'Queen of Heaven'. Baal was the enemy of God. Mary's Son Jesus came to this world for the purpose of destroying the works of the devil. 1 Jn 3:8. Mary would have never joined in the Baal religion which was adversarial to her Son and behind His crucifixion.
Perhaps the greatest example of the continuation of Baal today is the practice of worshipping STATUES OF MARY HOLDING BABY JESUS IN HER ARMS. This is nothing but copying THE STATUES OF SEMARAMIS HOLDING TAMMUZ IN HER ARMS.
In the pagan religions, THE MOTHER WAS WORSHIPPED AS MUCH OR MORE THAN HER SON. Many archaeologist cannot tell the difference between the statues of the Babylonian Mother and Child and that of Mary and her child. How could this happen?
It is unbelievable that MARY, Jesus Christ's mother, now has been given the titlesTHE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, THE MOTHER OF GOD, MY LADY and she is now PRAYED TO and WORSHIPPED EXACTLY like the QUEEN OF HEAVEN ASHTAROTH OF BAAL was worshipped.
'THE VIRGIN' AND 'THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN' SPREAD AT THE TIME WHEN GOD CONFUSED THE LANGUAGE AT BABYLON. The people there scattered throughout the earth taking with them their Baal religion. This is why sexual immorality has been worldwide because it was a part of the doctrines of Baal, and done in the name of religion. 1 Tim 4:1
Actually there is just ONE Queen of Heaven who was just given different names:Virgo, Ishtar, Isis, Semaramis, Ashtaroth, Aphrodite, Venus, etc. All of these ancient Queens of Heaven were temple PROSTITUTES . (IT IS INDISPUTABLE THAT MARY WAS NOT A PROSTITUTE).
The book of Revelation speaks about the GREAT WHORE. Revelation 17:1-6 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of THE GREAT WHORE that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication . So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her FORNICATION: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
Revelation 18:1-10 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, BABYLON THE GREAT IS FALLEN, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit A QUEEN, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come."
The reason the Virgin, the Queen of Heaven has been accepted through out the world is that Mary has just taken the place of the goddesses the people were already worshipping. The people really didn't have to change except the semantics. Their goddesses just were renamed, Mary.
This is why Mary is worshipped throughout the world. She is called THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, THE VIRGIN, MADONNA and is literally looked to as a goddess.
When Christianity first spread throughout the world it was strongly resisted because it was a threat to the worship of THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN and idolatry.
*Acts 19:27 "So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom ALL ASIA AND THE WORLD WORSHIPPETH."
Goddess worship became "christianized" when Mary was given goddess status. The new corrupted Christian leaders of that age realized they could make many converts of the pagans if they made Mary a goddess. Making statues of Mary would make it now difficult for Christians to preach against idolatry like the Apostle Paul had done. The adulation the pagans gave to their mother goddesses slowly was transferred to Mary. This made Christianity acceptable.
The "adulation of MARY" and idolatry WAS NOT A PART OF THE EARLY CHRISTIAN FAITH. EARLY CHRISTIANITY WAS CENTERED ON JESUS.
EARLY CHRISTIANITY FOUGHT IDOLATRY . Acts 19:19
Acts 17:16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
1 Corinthians 10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
JESUS HIMSELF SPOKE OUT AGAINST THE WORSHIP OF HIS MOTHER MARY WHILE HE WAS ON EARTH.
A. Luke 11:27-28 And it came to pass, as Jesus spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him,Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But Jesus said, Yea rather, blessed are they that HEAR THE WORD OF GOD, AND KEEP IT.
So while the women started giving adulation to Mary like they had to their goddesses, Jesus immediately stopped it.
B. John 2:3 "And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: …And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine."
the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine."
John 2:4 'Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
SO MARY SAID unto the servants, WHATSOEVER MY SON JESUS TELLS YOU TO DO, DO IT! MARY MADE IT CLEAR THAT IT WAS HER SON, JESUS THEY WERE TO LOOK TO FOR MIRACLES AND NOT HER.
Mary didn't turn the water into wine, it was Jesus. Mary never told the people to look to her for an answer to their prayer. She always pointed everyone to Jesus.
Matthew 12:47-48 "Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, WHO IS MY MOTHER? and who are my brethren?" He told them it was those who hear His words and do them.
So it is very clear that Jesus was not promoting the worship of His mother.
We honor Mary. She was a virtuous woman that God used mightily to bring His Son into the world, but it is incredible that many stillmake statues of her; pray her; worship her; and give her the titles of pagan goddesses such as: ' the Virgin', 'the Queen of Heaven', 'Madonna' and 'The Mother of God', and 'Our Lady' that defies God's Word.
Many in some realms of Christianity pray to the statues of Mary and of Mary HOLDING BABY JESUS IN HER ARMS and also of other deceased religious figures.
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS IN EX 20 SAYS,
"THOU SHALT NOT MAKE BEFORE ME ANY GRAVEN IMAGE." That includes images of Jesus, Mary and his disciples.
MANY PRAY TO MARY, THE DISCIPLES AND OTHER DEPARTED RELIGIOUS LEADERS.
Listen! WHOEVER YOU PRAY TO OR WORSHIP YOU ARE MAKING A GOD.
10 COMMANDMENTS EX. 20 "THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME."
THROUGHTOUT THE BIBLE in the O.T. as well as the New, it shows that GOD HATES IDOLATRY. WE ARE NOT TO EVEN MAKE A GRAVEN IMAGE OF JESUS, MARY, PETER OR ANY OF THE APOSTLES.
Also, Jesus should not be portrayed on hanging dead on the cross . My friend, Jesus is no longer dead! This projects the image that Satan wants you to have of Jesus: that He is powerless, defeated, and dead. The truth is that Jesus rose from the dead and is alive to hear and answer our prayers today!
A STATUE OR IDOL IS MADE BY A MAN . THINK! STATUES HAVE EYES BUT CAN'T SEE; EARS, BUT CANNOT HEAR; MOUTHS, BUT CANNOT SPEAK.
SINCE THAT IS THE CASE, HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR AN INANIMATE STATUE WHICH IS A GRAVEN IMAGE OR IDOL, HEAR AND ANSWER YOUR PRAYER?
ROMANS 1:25 "WHO CHANGED THE TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, AND WORSHIPPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE MORE THAN THE CREATOR,"
John 4:24 "GOD IS A SPIRIT: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
THE EMPHASIS IS TO BE ON JESUS, NOT on HIS MOTHER.
MARY WAS NOT THE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD, BUT SHE WAS USED OF GOD TO BRING THE SAVIOR INTO THE WORLD.
HOW CAN MARY BE CONSIDERED 'THE VIRGIN' TODAY ? SHE WAS A VIRGIN WHEN SHE CONCEIVED JESUS BY THE HOLY GHOST; BUT THE BIBLICAL FACT IS THAT LATER MARY MARRIED JOSEPH AND THEY HAD OTHER CHILDREN TOGETHER. BY MARRYING JOSEPH AND HAVING OTHER NATURAL CHILDREN SHE COULD NO LONGER STILL BE CONSIDERED A VIRGIN.
IT IS UNBIBLICAL FOR US TO WORSHIP OR PRAY TO MARY. MARY IS NOT THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN!
Mt. 6:9 JESUS SAID, When you pray, pray 'OUR FATHER who art in heaven…HE DIDN'T SAY PRAY 'OUR MOTHER'.
Jn 16:23 JESUS SAID, WHATSOEVER YE ASK THE FATHER IN MY NAME HE WILL GIVE IT YOU
MARY DIED AND WAS BURIED. THERE IS NO BIBLICAL RECORD THAT MARY WAS RESURRECTED, BUT THERE IS A BIBLICAL RECORD THAT HER SON JESUS CHRIST WAS.
There is no record in the Bible that MARY ASCENDED TO HEAVEN, BUT HER SON JESUS DID.
IT WASN'T MARY WHO OPENED BLINDED EYE, DEAF EARS, MADE THE LAME TO WALK, AND THE DEAD COME TO LIFE AGAIN, BUT HER SON JESUS DID.
IT WASN'T MARY WHO FORGAVE SINS, BUT HER SON JESUS DID.
1 Tim 2:5 THERE IS ONLY ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD AND MAN. JESUS
THERE IS ONLY ONE REDEEMER WHO SHED HIS BLOOD ON THE CROSS TO CLEANSE US OF OUR SINS, IT WAS MARY'S SON. JESUS.
Millions in different religions today still worship THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN, AND MADONNA. That worship comes from the ancient Baal religion. You can't mix worshipping THE VIRGIN, THE QUEEN OF HEAVEN with Christianity. THAT IS BAAL!
1 Kings 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, HOW LONG HALT YE BETWEEN TWO OPINIONS? IF THE LORD BE GOD, FOLLOW HIM: BUT IF BAAL, THEN FOLLOW HIM. And the people answered him not a word.
You cannot serve Jesus and mix Baal with it at the same time. CHOOSE YE THIS DAY WHO YE SHALL SERVE. YOU CANNOT HAVE 2 MASTERS.
2 Corinthians 6:17 17 Wherefore come out from among them,97Y and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you to myself.
ASK GOD FOR FORGIVENESS FOR GOING GO BOTH WAYS. YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND BAAL AT THE SAME TIME!
JESUS SAID, YOU HOLD THE TRADITIONS OF MAN ABOVE THE ABOVE THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD.

SOLZHENITSYN WARNING: The Warning from Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s iconic speech: “our path away from God, our worship of technologies, our addictions to pleasure and leisure that atrophy our capacity for growth, our spiritual void—all leading inevitably toward death. The disaster was inside each one of us, he says, because we refused to see it when we made man the measure of all things, “imperfect man who is never free of pride, self-interest, envy, vanity, and dozens of other defects. We are now paying for the mistakes which were not properly appraised at the beginning of the journey. If humanism were right in declaring that man is born only to be happy, he would not be born to die. Since his body is doomed to die, his task on earth evidently must be of a more spiritual nature.”
Salvation How do I know I am saved and going to Heaven
In reality it is God who draws us to him, we don't come to him. He called us as clearly written in John 15:16 and Ephesians 1:4. and by the power of the Holy Spirit convicts us of our need for redemption to salvation. Simply by understanding the simple gospel message found in 1 Corinthians 15: Jesus coming to earth and dying on the cross for us and by his shed blood we stand righteous before God and Jesus was resurrected on the 3rd day and ascended to heaven and believing on this we are saved.
Please research for yourself and understand that Romans Chapters 9 - 11 are not addressing the Church age directly and that confession of faith is not related to our eternal salvation. Also, please don't fall prey to hyper-dispensationalism and think Romans chapters 9-11 can't be used by Christians for insight and application in our daily lives as Christians.
