However, historians overlook the fact that a much greater number of people were butchered in the name of the Christian Church during their Heresy Wars and the Inquisitions. They would like you not to know about the men, women and children, whom the Inquisition had condemned and that were ROASTED ALIVE, in specially built ovens in Spain and Portugal, and other countries of Europe up to the 19th century. These “festivities” were held on Sundays and Holy Days and were known as ‘Acts of Faith’. The victims of the Aztecs were killed in a much more humane manner than the Inquisitional roastings. Is it not strange that these evil, so-called Christians should use the excuse of strong objections to human sacrifice for completely obliterating the Aztec civilization?”
Some Class 4 (Human consciousnesses) had taken the opportunity to come into animal bodies – usually as pets to be near us – so as to be of assistance. They are less entangled in the tragic human Rat Race that way and are able to finish their work with less interruption. I know of some who were placed in human bodies as “walk-ins” only to find the Dark Side simultaneously placed a demon in the body which neutralized their effectiveness somewhat. When they are ineffective in that way, the warrior is usually recalled and that body manifests overt demonic traits.
When so-called normal social interactions are viewed at the subtle levels, where the energy flows can be seen or realised, a true picture of the situation emerges. Outer physical activities and social interactions are meaningless. They are all part of Maya. The real situation that exists is the exchange of energy between the subtle bodies. This occurs in all interaction between all types of beings inspite of their metaphysical nature. This exchange is obvious on every plane except the physical and the astral planes, and that is why these realms have been so damaging to the True Beings.
What a joke isthis harping on the "illegal" nature of much immigration. Everyoneknows that businesses, and hence the government, apply the"wink-and-nod" approach here: the businesses want the cheap labor,and the political parties want votes from these ethnic blocs. The"illegality" is about as serious as jaywalking. And please don'twrite to harangue me about how we have to protect ourselves against terroristswho enter the country illegally. I agree: crimes of terrorism ofthe first magnitude, and the illegal entry of terrorists beprevented. But let's keep separate things separate. Don't falsely invoketerrorism to demonize and make dangerous criminals of the lettuce pickers whocross the Rio Grande so you can eat your dinner salad tonight.
Unfortunately, to date, this message of termination has been mixed up with the Biblical mumbo-jumbo, and has received minimal publicity and acknowledgement on Earth. I’m not in a position to say if things will change. One would think that after 30 years of trying to delivery it, some breakthrough would have occurred. But, that is not the case up until now. So I guess at this point my mission can be marked down as a failure. Or is it? It may be that the morons and unawakened robots can’t be bothered with such matters. And we know that demons have no concept of life outside of this Universe. So, for them, no Universal destruction is possible. They won’t believe it even when it happens.
Angels can take on the appearance of men when the occasion demands. How else could some “entertain angels unaware” ()? On the other hand, their appearance is sometimes in dazzling white and blazing glory ().
The hard truth, though, is has enough love on their own for the fight. In Matthew 7:7, Jesus says to ask and it will be given. So ask God to enable you to love with God's love. The Spirit's more than happy to give you this. But like everything else God gives, it's made to be real. It will take stubborn, regular prayer, taking risks, and maybe some hard lessons and changes in outlook, for the love to start flowing out of you. If the love isn't there, it's like going into battle unarmed and unprepared, straight into the line of fire.
Key changes toward the end of the story undermine the machinations of an unbalanced ecclesiastical figure, in general putting the Church in a more positive light than in the book and certainly than either version of . Where Brown’s has the entire college of cardinals fall prey to the villain’s subterfuge, the film deals with this in a way that allows the cardinals to save a little face. The filmmakers also extend mercy to an ecclesiastical character who has a very different and grimmer fate in the book.
If so, then thing 1-b: You also have to believe of the traditional and un-traditional descriptions of Satan, whether drawn from Jewish apocalyptic stories or early Christian practice or Zoroastrian imagery or Dante Aligheri or Enlightenment art or Calvin or psychology or CS Lewis or Jack Chick or anyone else. Nor do you have to believe in demons or a realm such as Hell or such things as demonic possession. Not even if you believe in active malevolence. You can leave Satan undescribed, or create your own description, and if it's done with some care, you can still be a follower of Christ.
Good angels can take on the appearance of men when the occasion demands. How else could some “entertain angels unaware” ()? On the other hand, their appearance is sometimes in dazzling white and blazing glory ().
Angels are spirits ()—like the soul of man, but without a physical body. They are apparently not part of our physical universe, but of a spiritual Heavenly realm. After the Earth’s , the universe (“the heavens and the Earth”) will be destroyed in fire. This will not destroy eternal spiritual beings, like humans or angels. God will then create a new universe—a new Earth with new heavens, at least equal to, if not greater than, His original Creation—full of beauty and wonder, and without sin or death.
The Devil never really 'possesses' (owns) anyone or any thing. The world is in revolt, but it is still the Creator's world, and the Devil can't change that. The Greek New Testament term for 'possession' is daimonizomai, which can be seen several ways. One way is to see it as demonic influence, where one is so twisted up by heeding the devil that one becomes 'demonized' - made like the Devil. The other way is as a demonic energy or impulse that not only stirs up evil in a person, but enables that person to do the Devil's work with an ability or power beyond what they would otherwise have -- a demonic dynamism. Bondage is created either way. It takes the bigger dynamism of Christ to free someone from that bondage, and it takes 'Christ-ization' to keep them free.
