DANCING AROUND THE GOLDEN CALF - PART 2

THE ROAD TO THE GOLDEN CALF

By JOHN S. TORELL

 

THE THEOLOGICAL TEACHING THAT IS DESTROYING AMERICA

Very few people have understood that events happening today were first thoughts and then words in people living yesterday. There is a saying that “the dead rule the living” and to a great extent this is true. False religious philosophies, political platforms and financial conspiracies to control commerce are holding the world in an iron grip and forcing people to live and work according to the founders of these bizarre ideas. Unless we understand what was said and done in the past, we will have lost our ability to free ourselves from these chains, imposed by these psychopaths and their demon handlers.

THE DEMON RULERS ARE THE SAME

Very few Christians have understood that fallen angels do not age, neither do they die. The satanic hierarchy that ruled the nations in the Middle East prior to the flood is still ruling the same areas. The only satanic entities locked up in prison, are the ones who trespassed and had sexual intercourse with women prior to the flood, and those cast out by Christians and sent to prison.   

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Genesis 6:1-2

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;…
 
2 Peter 2:4

And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Jude 1:6

And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.  And He said unto them, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:17-19

Accordingly, the same satanic rulers who possessed kings and rulers in the past are still in possession of the current leadership in Iran (Persia), Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and all other nations around the world. The demons that possessed Nero, Genghis Khan, Karl Marx, Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mau Zedong, Pol Pot (left), Idi Amin (below right), etc., today possess other political rulers like Kim Yong iI (below left), dictator of North Korea, Islamic Ayatollahs, the current president of Iran, the political leadership in Israel, the United States and all other nations. If a political leader is a born again believer in Christ, walking in obedience to the Word of God, and been delivered from demons, only then are they free from being ruled by evil spirits.

God’s own Word tells us that there are demon princes who are ruling over nations with the help of millions of demonic spirits who are perverting the thinking of the people living in the nations and making men and women into beasts who enjoy killing and tormenting other human beings. That’s the reason why we have the suicide bombers, young men and women committed to murdering as many people as possible and killing themselves at the same time. When a suicide bomber dies, the evil spirits exit their body and then move on to another person.

Today we can see this demonic manifestation in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Gaza strip, the West Bank, etc. We can see them here in the United States possessing serial killers and rapists, causing great harm to innocent victims. Even if a killer is caught, sentenced to death and executed, the demons are safe once the killer dies; they leave his body and find new victims to possess. They can enter a child, stay in that child as it is grows older and use that person to commit atrocities. Most prison guards, police officers, ambulance drivers, firemen, doctors and nurses and all other people who are either around demon possessed people, or are responders to accidents where people have died, will become demon possessed if they are not saved and even if they are born again, they can become oppressed by demons.

The same holds true for military personnel involved in combat who come in contact with dead people. Divorce, suicide and substance abuse is rampant in law enforcement, prison guards, medical responders and military personnel.

And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia. Daniel 10:11-13

Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. Daniel 10:20

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:11-12

MOHAMMAD WAS POSSESSED BY A PRINCIPALITY

Mohammad was a thief, liar and sexual pervert who wanted money and power to live out his selfish desires. In 622 A.D., he moved to Medina, Saudi Arabia, where he organized his new religion, Islam (meaning “surrender”). For the next ten years he formulated his religion which elevated men and demoted women to a low class, described by Mohammad as poor in intelligence and religion. By doing so he took away their legal rights and relegated them to a commodity, created for the pleasure of men and procreation. 1

Mohammad himself had 16 wives and six concubines (female slaves). His favorite wife was Aishah, she was only six years old when he took her as a wife. He did not have sexual intercourse with her until she was nine years old.

Mohammad also taught that Jihad (holy war) was to be waged against all other people who did not embrace his religion. Men who fought in Jihad and died in battle were told that they would go straight to heaven where they would be given a large number of beautiful virgins. For the rest of eternity, the “martyr” would be able to have as much sexual pleasure as he wanted and all the alcohol he wished to drink. However, it is ironic that while on earth, a Muslim is not allowed to drink alcohol.

Mohammad had only lived ten years in Medina when he died, but during these short ten years, he established a “hell” religion which has lasted for some 1,384 years and now has over one billion followers. Ten years ago, very few people in the West knew what the word Jihad meant, but now it has become a household word. Suicide bombers from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq have altered the lifestyle in the Western Nations of the world, and no one in the world today is safe from some fanatical follower of Mohammad looking for someone he can kill, all in the name of “Allah,” the demon god of Mohammad.

When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, girls were not allowed to be educated. When Afghani parents send their girls to school today, a fanatical Taliban fighter will attack the school, kill the teachers and girls, and then burn down the school building. Here is the plain truth: The “prophet Mohammad” was a pedophile that has been dead now for more than 1,600 years, but his legacy lives on through a billion plus Muslims who are busy making life miserable for all the other infidels living on this planet.

JOSEPH SMITH WAS POSSESSED BY A PRINCIPALITY

Time has been kind to Joseph Smith as the Mormon spin doctors have for years created an image that never existed. If we were to use modern terms for Smith, he would be described as a psychopath who at the age of 14 suffered from dementia praecox, a form of insanity also known as schizophrenia. As a young man, he suffered from hallucinations and conned a number of people into paying him to search for hidden treasures which he knew did not exist. He was known as a liar and thief to the people living in his community. He dabbled in the occult, became a Freemason for a while, and also attended a number of different churches. Being a dishonest man who did not like to work, he invented a religion which gave him a license to live out his sexual perversions.

Just like Mohammad, Smith created a religion that elevated men and treated women as sex objects who were to bear children and make sure that the husband was satisfied in his lustful sexual fantasies. He taught that the god of this creation was a man, who in previous times had lived as a man, joined a Mormon church and when he died he was elevated to godhood. Millions of men on this prehistoric planet had become gods and each one was given a solar system and millions of women as wives. This particular god, Elohim, kept having sexual intercourse with all his women and their offspring were souls which were flown down to the present earth and inserted in unborn babies.

Behind Elohim was another god, and behind him was another god, with this pattern going back for eternity. In the future, the same pattern will be followed with Mormon men becoming gods, who will in turn populate their solar systems and the whole cycle of Adam and Eve, the fall in the garden and the coming Messiah will be repeated for eternity with the making of a new set of gods.

Smith taught that there is a general resurrection for men but not for women. If a Mormon man has pleasure in his wife, he may wake her up from the dead, but if he is displeased with her, she will never wake up and simply cease to exist.

Joseph Smith had a sexual appetite that could not be satisfied, and as a result, he took a number of wives. His first wife, who had born him eight children, was forced aside as he brought in younger women to satisfy him.

He used his knowledge of freemasonry to design temple rites which degraded young women when they came to the temple to be married. First, they were stripped naked and examined to make sure they were virgins and then rubbed down with oil before they were allowed to dress and go through the wedding ceremony.

When Joseph was killed in prison, the movement split in two, with Brigham Young taking the biggest amount of people and leading them to Utah. The family of Joseph went south to Missouri and formed what is called, “The Reorganized Church of Latter Day Saints.” Brigham Young was even more brutal and ruthless than Joseph and once he had established himself in Salt Lake City, he surrounded himself with a harem of women, who were in reality slaves. A militia was formed called “The Avengers,” who would ride at night and kill people opposed to Brigham. If bishops or other leaders in the Mormon Church lusted after a wife of another man, the Avengers would simply kill the husband, and force the new widow to marry the man who had lusted after her.

When the United States finally took control over Utah, there was a showdown between the U.S. Army and the Mormon Church. With the threat of being attacked and destroyed, the Mormon leadership in 1890 changed its theology and forbade polygamy, but tens of thousands of hardcore Mormons continued to practice polygamy secretly, even to this very day.

WARREN JEFFS IS POSSESSED BY A PRINCIPALITY

A prime example of this continued polygamy is the Mormon branch called the Fundamental Latter Day Saints (FLDS) with its headquarters in the twin cities of Hilldale, Utah and Colorado City in Arizona. The current leader is Warren Jeffs, born in 1955, took over leadership in 2002 when his father Rulon Jeffs died. Rulon left behind 75 wives and 65 children. Warren is said to have about 80 wives and over 250 children that are spread out in a number of different states including a large ranch in Eldorado, Texas. He had been on the FBI Most Wanted list for several years and is accused of molesting young girls and sodomizing young boys. When his father died, he took a number of his father’s wives and married them.

When Warren took over the sect, he removed all the children from public school, and had all their books burned. Just like days of old, if Warren or one of his leaders finds a woman attractive, the husband is either killed or driven out of the community and the “new widow” is forced to marry the man who lusted after her. Young men are driven out from the community on a regular basis since there are not enough women to go around. People in these two cities are scared and do not speak to strangers. The State Police and Sheriff departments of Utah and Arizona are not able to control these twin cities and Warren reigns as king over some 10,000 people. Even the FBI doesn’t dare to go into these cities to arrest him but would preferably try and arrest him while he travels and is more isolated. When Warren does travel, it is always with armed bodyguards known as “God’s Patrol.”

The people living in these two cities are forbidden to have television sets and are not allowed to read newspapers or books. The only books allowed are cookbooks. According to the teaching of this Mormon branch, a man must have at least three wives in order to become a god in the next life. The more wives a man accumulates, the greater status he has in the sect. Warren Jeffs operates just like the Taliban do in Afghanistan. He presides over trials as a judge with no jurors, he is the sheriff, and he controls the people’s money through his own private bank. Consequently, he is able to extract large sums of money from his followers, which gives him the freedom to live a lavish lifestyle, travel, and pay his bodyguards.

Young girls are never given a chance to select whom they want to marry. Once a girl reaches the age of 12, she will automatically be taken into marriage. A young girl is only notified a few hours before the wedding is to take place, then taken by force to the wedding ceremony and later “molested” by her husband.

Warren Jeff is a psychopath living a lavish life style and a rapist of young boys and girls. The media in the United States is partly to blame for this because they have stayed away and not given this situation any coverage. Most Americans don’t know there is a home grown “Taliban” in the heartland of the United States that no government agency wants to tackle. This brings to mind a burning question for which there is no answer at this time, “Who is protecting this child molester, murderer and wife stealer?”

Again, I want to remind the reader that Joseph Smith’s perverted demon ruler designed a religion around 150 years ago and today its spin doctors have cleaned up the history of violence, murder, incest and corruption and made it into a modern American religion with some ten million members, half of them outside the United States. The Mormon Church is the largest corporation in the Western United States and owns stock in the airline, manufacturing and insurance industries. The Mormon Church is always pushing its family values, but to those inside the church, it is a corrupt system demanding absolute loyalty, even with finances. Members are forced to show their IRS filings each year so that they can be properly taxed by the Mormon leadership.

Remember this, the Mormon Church began as a thought in the mind of Joseph Smith, and today even though he is dead, Joseph Smith still rules the living that have joined the Mormon Church. The same satanic spirits who possessed and ruled through these psychopaths are still in charge of the current leadership and it is not the dead men who are ruling today, but powerful demonic principalities that are perpetuating Islam, Mormonism and all other false religions. 

I have chosen these two examples to show the reader that the dead are indeed ruling the living and only through Jesus Christ can we be liberated. Jesus is not dead; He is risen from the dead and very much alive.

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. Revelation 1:10-18

Please consider the following organizations, which have billions of people in a death grip, Communism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Roman Catholicism, New Age groups, Freemasonry, and all kind of secret societies. The dead rule the living!

But the worst is yet to come. The majority of the Christians in the world are now being led astray and programmed to be the guardians of the coming Antichrist and his system. Read these verses in the Bible and begin to weep!

Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 2 Thessalonians 2:1-5

Let’s trace the falling away that happened among Christians so that you can avoid being sucked into this spiritual “black hole!” It began with William Miller.

William Miller (1782-1849)

William Miller is the most well-known American who started a movement claiming that the return of Jesus Christ was imminent. He worked as a farmer in his youth, and when war with England broke out in 1812, he served in the U.S. Army as a captain. In 1816, he abandoned his stand as a Deist, and became a Christian and joined a Baptist church. Two years later, he announced that Jesus Christ was going to return to the earth in 25 years (sometime in March 1844) and set up his 1,000 year kingdom. In 1833, Miller was licensed to preach by a Baptist church, but he was never ordained. He published a pamphlet in 1833 with the title, “Evidence from Scripture and History of the Second Coming of Christ about the Year 1843.” People became excited about his teaching, and he was able to attract some 50,000 followers who were also known as “Adventists,” which later became known as “Seventh Day Adventists.” William was able to speak in many churches but was barred from Episcopalian and Roman Catholic Churches. He mainly moved in two states, Vermont and New York. When Christ did not return in March 1844, Miller made a new calculation based upon Daniel 8:14, and set the new date as October 12, 1844.

The entire Millerite movement collapsed as most of his followers’ faith in Christ was destroyed. But Miller was a slick operator, and he came out with a new explanation: Christ had indeed returned, but Miller had not understood that Christ first had to come to the “Heavenly Sanctuary,” which he was now busy cleansing. Once Jesus had cleaned things up in heaven, he would come back to the earth. A remnant of his followers bought into this lie and formed the Advent Church and in 1845 Miller became the first president of this denomination. The name was later changed to Seventh Day Adventist and when Miller died in 1849, a new false prophet took over by the name of Ellen G. White. The demonic activity was very high during these years, because Joseph Smith (1805-1844), another religious huckster was operating in New York at the same time. As Miller was stirring up the Christian community with his predictions, Smith operated in the backwaters and on April 6, 1830 he founded the Mormon Church, also known as the Latter Day Saints (LDS). By 1839 Smith had a following of some 20,000 persons. 2

A MODERN MILLERITE RULED BY A RELIGIOUS SATANIC SPIRIT

Harold Camping, the president or dictator of the radio network known as FAMILY RADIO has done and is continuing to do great damage to the Christian community in the world. Just like so many other false teachers, this man does not have any formal theological education, but is a businessman who has proclaimed to be a “prophet and Bible teacher” from God. Family Radio was founded by some Christians in the late 1950’s with one station in San Francisco and over the years built a network covering the entire United States. As a businessman, Camping invested a substantial amount of money, and as a result secured for himself a dominant role in the network. For many years, there was wholesome solid Bible teaching outreach mixed with great gospel music and featured great programs like Unshackled, Back to the Bible, Haven of Rest and many others. The downfall of Camping came when he began to teach that the gifts of the Holy Spirit were not for today, that the powerful work of the Holy Spirit ended with the last apostle in the first century after Christ.

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:5

I have been a daily listener to Family Radio since 1969 and Camping’s heresy has now gotten so bad that he has lost control of himself. Some of the wonderful staff either quit the network or were fired, as he streamlined the organization to be a group of rubberstamping yes men, who would admire and accept everything Harold would come up with. In 1992, the religious spirits from Satan completely took him over as he wrote a book titled, “1994,” in which he predicted that Jesus’ second coming was to take place between September 15th and 27th in the year 1994. Camping pushed his book frequently on the radio, teaching from it on his program, “Open Forum” and other Bible teaching sessions. When September 1994 rolled around and Jesus did not return, Harold worked like a showman who is caught and said that he had not understood the message from God, but predicted a new date which was good. The date was afterward changed eight times until he settled for the year 2008. Look at the following dates:

(a)   September 6, 1994?  (Subsequently extended a few days, given the slight variations in the ancient calendars).  Or,

(b)   September 15, 1994, the Jewish Day of Atonement?  Or,

(c)   September 25, 1994, the Jewish feast of tabernacles?  Or,

(d)   October 4, 1994, the actual birthday of Jesus, calculated by Mr. Camping?  Or,

(e)   December 25, 1994, our traditional celebration of Christmas and Christ’s incarnation and birth, based on the statement in Revelation 11:10 that the enemies of God’s people would “send gifts one to another”?  Or,

(f)     February 25, 1995, the Jewish feast of Purim?  Or,

(g)   May 3, 1996, when he was so sure of this date that he devoted several Open Forum programs to explain how the “four watches” (alluded to in Mark 13:35) extended the September 6, 1994 date until then?  Or,

(h)   His current teaching, that September 6, 1994 was the right date, after all, but for the beginning of the Great Tribulation, not Judgment Day?  And, since we are at least halfway through the Great Tribulation, simple arithmetic says that the return of the Lord will be no later than 2008.
