Check this new book out and you will be encouraged and shown how Paul does NOT teach that the Law was done away with as so many try to say.

Jan McFarland:

I feel this book accurately explains those sections of Scripture that can be confusing or appear that Paul is teaching that the ‘law’ is done away with. It puts those hard to be understood passages of Paul into context. “Not Under the Law” helped with my own understanding and also gives me concise answers for friends who are coming into Torah. All those, “What about this verse…” questions are easy to answer now because of this book. Paul did not preach or teach lawlessness. He did not and would not contradict the Word and this book shows why. It is a good reference to share with others!

December 25th, A Happy Birthday? – by Richard Rives

December 25th is well known as the birthday of various pagan gods.

A Roman calendar drawn up by a “Christian” in 354 A.D. (The Codex Calendar of 354) shows December 25 to be the birthday of Sol Invictus. Not only is it listed as a pagan birthday; but, it is listed as the most important pagan birthday of the whole year. It was celebrated in the Roman Circus with extra chariot races. This is the sun god that Constantine the Great worshipped while claiming to be a “Christian.” His coins state that he was “committed to Sol Invictus.” Constantines’ form of “Christianity” continues to influence Christianity today. December 25th is just Continue Reading

The Greco-Romans – by Richard Rives

TO HEAR A 2 MIN. JUST THE FACTS AUDIO SEGMENT RELATING TO THIS SUBJECT:

By now, it should be no surprise that the Greco-Roman gods were also sun gods.

Greece or Grecia had very little immediate significance to the writers of the Old Testament. From a prophetic stand point, however, Greece was extremely important.

The prophet Daniel relating a vision he had been given, foretold of the fall of the Medo-Persian empire and the rise of the powerful Grecian empire of Alexander the Great.

“The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.”

At the height of his power, in 323 B.C., Alexander the Great died in Babylon having Continue Reading

The mystery god Mithra – by Richard Rives

TO HEAR A 2 MIN. JUST THE FACTS AUDIO SEGMENT RELATING TO THIS SUBJECT:

How does one begin to explain the very important connection between Mithraism and the paganizing of the true worship of God and His only begotten Son?

To begin with, Mithras was the sun god of the Persians and subsequent empires including the Roman Empire through the 4th century. During the 4th century, Mithras “mysteriously” vanished and Roman “Christianity” began. A Christianity not like that of the 1st century; but, a polluted, corrupt “Christianity” lacking few Mithraic rituals.

Mithras was invoked in the inscriptions of the Biblical Artaxerxes, king of Babylon: making Mithras one of the Continue Reading

The Medo-Persians – by Richard Rives

The Medo-Persian empire continued the tradition of sun worship. As Medo-Persia indicates, it is a kingdom derived from the combination of the Medes and the Persians. This combination took place under the ruler-ship of Cyrus the Great. The Biblical Darius was also one of the famous Medo-Persian kings. Both Cyrus and Darius are important characters as they were instrumental in the return of Judeans to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity.

The earliest form of the religion of the Medo-Persians is described in ancient manuscripts known as the Zendavesta. Ahura-Mazda was known as the creator of all things: heaven and earth, light and darkness, the originator of all laws and judge of the world. Continue Reading

The Babylonians – by Richard Rives

The next civilization was that of Babylonia. They too were sun worshipers. During the Biblical time of the Judges, wars were being fought between the Assyrians and the Babylonians. Merodach-Baladan extended his empire to include upper Babylon and at that time he became known as the “King of Babylon”.

Quoting Isaiah Chapter 39

“At that time Merodach-Baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered. And Hezekiah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armour, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not. Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah, and said unto him, What said these men? and from whence came they unto thee? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country unto me, even from Babylon. Then said he, What have they seen in thine house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them. Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the LORD of hosts: Behold, the days come, that all that is in thine house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the LORD.”

As was prophesied: “In the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and they besieged it. And in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, the city was broken up.”

The Assyrians – by Richard Rives

The Assyrian Monarchy followed that of the Chaldeans. The worship of the Assyrians seems to be identical with that of the Chaldeans with the exception that Asshur was considered the universal god.

Shalmaneser III, King at the time the Black-Obelisk was inscribed, honors Bel, the father of the gods, Beltis, the mother of the gods, and the sun god Shamas and Ishtar at the beginning of the inscription. He calls Asshur the king of all the four regions, the sun god of the multitude of mankind.

King Sennacherib of 2 Kings 19, and Isaiah 37: was a sun worshiper. Continue Reading

The Chaldeans – by Richard Rives

TO HEAR A 2 MIN. JUST THE FACTS AUDIO SEGMENT RELATING TO THIS SUBJECT:

The first six chapters of the book deal directly with sun worship as it can be traced historically throughout the centuries. From Ancient times sun worship has been the apostate form of religion which Satan has chosen to oppose the true worship of the Creator. Through every known civilization sun worship influenced the thoughts and actions of mankind.

The Chaldeans worshiped the sun god. So did the Assyrians. The Babylonians – The Medo-Persians -The Grecians – and the Romans were sun worshipers. And even today, by way of the mystery of iniquity, the sun worship of previous centuries is disguised to the extent that it is now accepted by the majority as that of Biblical Christianity.


 

Soon after the global flood of Noah’s day, Nimrod, Noah’s great grandson, the son of Cush began the kingdom of Babel. The civilization he started is known by historians as that of the Chaldeans.

There is evidence that the Chaldeans knew ELOHIM of Genesis who created heaven and earth. What a shame that Continue Reading
