What’s Up With All These Pictures of Jesus? Just Asking…

 

,,,,,Think about it…..

The Second Commandment
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am o jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of then that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.’ Exodus 20: 4-6.

“Let us now consider images and pictures of Jesus Christ. We do not have one instance of Christ being portrayed physically anywhere in the Gospels, or through the testaments. There are instances of Him as “despised,” in Isaiah, as one not to behold, and His age is hinted at in John 8 – He was not yet 50 years old. Otherwise, the Holy Spirit did not give us one instance of Christ’s appearance anywhere in the Bible. With so different pretended portraits of the Lord we cannot begin to wonder at the variations of the pictures of Christ, which the Iconoclasts used as an argument against images. In truth, every nation formed a likeness of its own, according to its existing ideals of art and virtue.[12] Not only this, but I find it interesting that when Christ is portrayed in pictures or in movies, that he is given long hair – like a woman (1 Corinthians 11:15). Not only is this inaccurate from a Semitic standpoint, but it also ascribes to Christ something that is the glory of a woman, not a man. It ascribes to Him actions of having long hair which is sinful according to 1 Corinthians 11:14, “Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?” Is this the Jesus Christian was to “see?”

New Age-The Enemy of Christ Exposed

Documentary: The NEW AGE, (the enemy of Christ exposed)

Ok, so I will admit that back in the day, I ignorantly and stupidly got sucked into New Age. A lot of us did, as it was considered “cool”, and we didn’t want to be associated with that stodgy old-time religion. Bad move. Long story short, after studying for 8 or 9 months trying to figure out how to get into this “godhood” thing, I realized I was going down a dead-end road 90 miles an hour. One thing led to another, I got saved, filled with the Holy Spirit and after that for years I was so happy, so “on fire for God”, so engrossed with Jesus, and studying the bible, I was not only NOT interested in New Age, but was not aware of the growing encroachment of New Age practices and teachings creeping into the church, the Body of Christ.


All of that has changed. No longer can I ignore New age and occult coming into the church, because it’s everywhere. Christians are now holding Yoga classes in the church gym, Reiki, Eastern mysticism and meditation, contemplative prayer, wicca, and you fill in the blanks. Every aspect of New Age as well as many other occult themes are being introduced into the church. And what’s worse, is that the mainstream organized church has ignorantly embraced these practices as if it were fine with God. Well, guess what? It isn’t and I believe the LORD is calling his people to call out these false doctrines and practices and kick the devil out of His church. I believe He expects us to do this, not wait around for God to do something about it, but to be accountable to keep the church clean of corruption, false doctrines and false workers. 

Please take an hour to watch this documentary on the history and origin of New Age. And then join us in sounding the alarm and exposing it wherever you encounter it.

 

The Lie of the Serpent is the second part of the controversial Megiddo series, which next focuses on the highly influential New Age movement. But is the New Age really new? Or does it represent the ancient doctrine taught by the serpent to Eve in the Garden of Eden? The answer will startle and amaze you as you learn the influence of the serpent’s teaching through the spiritual explosion of occult activity in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Some of the greatest and most recognized people of the modern era (including Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Adolf Hitler and Hillary Clinton) have been influenced by the movement that has re-awakened mankind’s communication with the spirit realm, and re-shaped the Western view of God and His relationship to mankind. What are the implications of this “paradigm shift” that seeks to introduce a new global consciousness? Will this new consciousness really bring mankind into the dawning of a golden era? Or the awakening of another dark age?

Full of highly detailed research and exhaustive documentation, Megiddo II challenges even the most skeptical viewer to consider the consequence of the global awakening taking place before our very eyes.

Join speakers Dave Hunt, Caryl Matrisciana, Dr. Kent Hovind, Pastor Joe Schimmel, and Dr. Stan Monteith who expose the movement that seeks to unite mankind in a one-world religion through the United Nations.

Global adherents claim to await a “universal Christ” to lead the world. What happens to those who will not follow this world leader? And are there sinister warnings against those who refuse to be “initiated” into the New Age?

“… one of the greatest movies ever produced.
I think it’s one of the most important videos I ever saw in my life …”

“This stunning video is a loud & ringing wake-up call for slumbering Christians.
It covers the gamut from the roots of evolution in Genesis, the rise of spiritualism,
