What’s in a blasphemous name?


People Dragon fruitsay “What’s in a name?” to imply that name does not matter. Also, William Shakespeare (Wikipedia) has his own version “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet“, which “is a popular reference to his play Romeo and Juliet, in which Juliet seems to argue that it does not matter that Romeo is from her family’s rival house of Montague, that is, that he is named “Montague”. The reference is often used to imply that the names of things do not affect what they really are. This formulation is, however, a paraphrase of Shakespeare’s actual language. Juliet compares Romeo to a rose saying that if he were not named Romeo he would still be handsome and be Juliet’s love. This states that if he were not Romeo, then he would not be a Montague and she would be able to get married with no problem at all.”

How about if dragon fruit flower is named rose? Will name not matters? Good, if the dragon fruit flower smell  as sweet as rose, assuming that rose is still smelling sweet. Also, why is there ‘blasphemous name‘ in Revelation 13:1, if name does not really matter?

Therefore, believers has to be distinguished into at least two groups, to wit, 1) believers of Juliet or in a ‘rose’ or Shakespearean doctrine and 2) believers of the words in the Book of Revelation. (more…)

Reasons why Jesus is the ‘name of blasphemy’


 

The Pope and the ChildBelievers worship the name Jesus, without valid logical reason, at all, or simply, based on questionable faith. Are they aware of the ‘name of blasphemy’ in Revelation 13? Or are they just comfortable believing in a lie? Of course, not all will admit that Jesus name is the name of blasphemy, but, if history is reviewed, with common sense and without bias or free from delusion, it will point to a Jesus name, which is being worshiped by Roman Catholics, Orthodox believers and Christians. Bible scholars, teachers and christian leaders would even shout in reverence of this name, not aware that it is the name of blasphemy.

Historically, Jesus name came from Greek name Iesous, which was initially transliterated to Iesus in the 1611 King James Version. At that time, letter “J” was not yet in existence in the English language. The name is also transliterated to Filipino as Hesus or Hesu or Esus, Esu, Iesus, Issa in other languages. Also, some historians quote Hesus or Esus as the name of a Celtic and Gallo-Roman god. It is described in wikipedia. Others describe Iaso, as the female counterpart name of Iesous in Greek, hence, in all probability, Jesus name did (more…)

The Two Beasts in Revelation 13


There are different views on the two beasts in Revelation 13. But none of them points to Emperor Constantine I and his political-religious empire and Jesus Christ and Christianity, which are, in reality, being referred in the verses.

Objectively, the identity of the two beasts was ascertained through review of history and connecting it to the verses. For example, Revelation 13:1-2 (KJV) gives us the clue on the first beast. The verses state:

13 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Verse 1 describes the rising up of the first beast out of the sea, which is a figurative description of the origin of the first beast. This is better understood, if co-related to the description of the second beast in Revelation 13:11, where it is described to “come up out of the earth“. Obviously, sea is liquid or unsolidified or not stable. In contrast, earth or land is solid or firm. These two describe the condition of the predecessor empire, where the first and second beast emanated, respectively. Notice that the description of the predecessor of the first beast (more…)

Vaccine against homosexuality

What is a vaccine against homosexuality? Is there such a thing? This issue may be answered by the statements of Pope Francis when he warned against “administering a vaccine against faith”.  And the publisher fully agrees with him that there is such a thing.

When the Pope mentioned ‘vaccine against faith”, definitely, he is referring to “faith” as a disease because vaccines are only intended to prevent diseases. But when he further warned against ‘administering’ the vaccine, then he logically means that he is warning against the prevention of a disease. (more…)

Sex organ is the forbidden meat to be eaten


Nowadays, seldom you could find a preacher teaching “oral sex” as forbidden “meat eating”. Instead, you could find priests and preachers, who are fun of sex organs. At the same time, they are silent on the issue and some are allegedly forgiving and accommodating to homosexuals, lesbians and heterosexuals, who are also sexually “eating” the same organs.

Note that animals were given as food according to Genesis 9:2-3. ( 2All the animals, birds and fish will live in fear  of you. They are all placed under your power. 3Now you can eat them, as well as green plants; I give them all to you for food (Today’s English Version)). (more…)

Jesus Christ: The Way ‘to Zeus’, The Lie and The Death

Are Catholics and Christians worshipping the Creator or are they deceived to worship Greek pagan god Zeus using tradition and the bible? This issue will be tackled in this article with preliminary question by invoking John 14:6, which provides that “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Is the bible really telling the truth? No. It is because the Zeus-Dionysus-Jesus Christ connection is obvious in today’s worship and religious practices though the genitive Dios, more specifically, through the Filipino term ‘Diyos’, which originated from the influence of Spaniards, who brought the Roman Catholic beliefs to Filipinos. 

Wikipedia (Etymology section) describes the Zeus-Dionysus connection through the ‘dio’ element in Dionysus, as follows:

The dio- element has been associated since antiquity with Zeus (genitive Dios). The earliest attested form of the name is Mycenaean Greek 𐀇𐀺𐀝𐀰, di-wo-nu-so, written in Linear B syllabic script, (more…)

Where did the names ‘Jesus’ and ‘Christ’ originate?


Seemingly Straight Road

Seemingly straight but actually crooked way

If you are God and everyday, you are hearing people praising and worshipping a name, which is not your name, what will you feel? Will you be happy? This sub-article of Shocking truth about ‘Jesus Christ’ name mainly focuses on the origin of the names ‘Jesus’ and ‘Christ’. This is to know, whether or not, the names deserve to be praised. Incidentally, this will give us a clue on people, who are more than atheists and satanists.

Of course, the names ‘Jesus’ and ‘Christ’ are found in the English bible. Thus, without controverting facts, which will put the bible in question, the names are presumed to be the truth. But granting for the sake of argument that said names are, in fact, written in the bible, with spiritual guide, did it ever occur to believer’s mind that maybe the spirit that guided is evil and the names written therein are corrupted? It is because the English and Christian name Jesus Christ is playing an important role in a narration of past events, during which time, the present English language, Catholicism and Christianity were not yet in existence.

In short, how can a christian and english name Jesus Christ evolve into existence as the name of the son, when the messiah was neither a Christian or an Englishman?

Thus, consequently, for believing in a Jesus Christ name, which did not exist when the messiah was here on earth, Catholics and Christians are deemed (more…)

Yahushua: The Only Way to the Father

Cloud and the park

Based on historical facts, no Jesus name ever existed, when the messiah was here in earth. Hence, despite it is written in the bible and strong delusions of professing biblical scholars, the rejection of Jesus Christ name as the only way to the Father is justified, because, spiritually, the Jesus Christ entity is virtually impossible to have existed, when the messiah was here on earth. What is then the name of the right way to the eternal Father? The applicable verses in this case is John 14:6-7, stating that:

6 Yahushua (Jesus) said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also.[a] From now on you do know him and have seen him.”(John 14:6-7, ESV Revised)

in relation to Zechariah 6:11-12, stating that:

11Then take some silver and gold to make a crown and set it on the head of Yahushua (Joshua) son of Jehozadak, the high priest. 12 Then say to him, ‘The Lord who rules over all says, “Look – here is the man whose name is Branch, who will sprout up from his place and build the temple of the Lord.(Zechariah 6:11-12, NET bible Revised)

Before discussing the “The Only Way to the Father“, let’s review the “What’s in a Jewish or Greek-Roman Name” sub-article, which is the first sequel of the (more…)
