One of the places on our itinerary was Mt. Carmel. It wasn’t part of the tour my first time. I took the time to pray about the places we would be visiting wanting to hear if there was something specific the Father wanted me to know or understand. All I got about Mt. Carmel was that it was really important. I was to pay attention and focus on what had happened there during Elijah’s lifetime.
It wasn’t an especially noteworthy day the day we visited Mt. Carmel. There was a serious haze over the land for the first few days of the tour due to major dust storms in Lebanon and it prevented me from getting nice clear pictures. More on that later. I am not impressed with all the ‘religious’ trappings and hype surrounding many of the places tourists go to in Israel. Mostly, I am overwhelmed that serious God stuff happened where I am standing and I was waiting to hear or see what Abba wanted to show me about Mt. Carmel.
Nothing came while we were there, but in the bus traveling to our next destination, this is what I got: The original battle at Mt. Carmel - Elijah vs. the prophets of Baal - was not between believers and non-believers. It was between those who believed in the One True Living God, YHVH Elohim, and those who believed in another god.
The battle that is going to be fought again will not be a battle between believers and unbelievers, but this is the scenario that is played out for the religious in teachings and sermons and media. We are led to believe it is the ultimate battle between good and evil, the churchers and the atheists, the religious and the non-religious. No.
It will be like before, a battle between believers. There are believers who walk (halak) in the way (derech) of YHVH and there are those who SAY they do but worship only a god of their own making, a god that the Jews of history do not recognize as the God of the Tenakh. The Jesus of christianity has been so far removed from His Jewish roots in mainstream churches that he is literally ‘another Jesus’. This Jesus offers easy grace without repentance or he is the mean guy that will send you to hell for questioning the leaders. Many Jesuses. Many Baals. Just like before, there is going to be a showdown between the prophets of the false gods and those who walk (halak) in the Way (derech) of the One True Living Elohim. This is jihad - holy war - a war of gods fought by believers in those gods.
We see it all around us. I look at what is going on in the world and I feel as if a lead weight has been laid on my chest. Who doesn’t believe in something? Christians are tortured and murdered because they do not accept another belief. Hundreds of young girls are kidnapped in Nigeria because “western education is a sin” (translation of boko haram) and one can only imagine what they are being subjected to for the purpose of programming them into another belief system. Three young Israeli men are kidnapped because they are Jewish and can be used as bargaining chips for the other religion. We are no talking about prisoners of war, we are talking about innocent people being used and abused for the sake of advancing belief systems.
The earthly New World Order is not a secular movement. It is the religion of intellectual enlightenment of the few working to control the rest of the world. The programs and techniques that have been put into place to coerce and force compliance to their agenda are terrible and unimaginable to those of us who have been fortunate enough to have escaped the worst. There are survivors who have tried to tell their stories but they are so horrific our minds can’t get around the facts and so they are labeled lunatics not only by the very people who perpetrated the horrors, but also by us - who simply cannot believe human beings capable of such things. Is that because we have also been programmed at some level? Interesting question. Remember - the deception will be so good that even the very elect could be deceived if that were possible.
Let’s go back to the haze in Israel that prevented me from taking clear pictures. In my previous post, I mentioned that there is often an obvious correlation between the physical and the spiritual. The picture that I have included with this post is one I took of the sun over the Sea of Galilee, however, because of the haze, it actually looks more like the moon. Was this an indication of how the deception works? I certainly have more questions than answers today.
