The Tantric Takeover of Turtle Island-Lessons from Tibet

by James C. Stephens


“In the summer of 1981, the “iron bird year” of the Tibetan calendar, the god-king granted a public Kalachakra initiation for the first time outside of Asia. The date and the location (Wisconsin, USA) of the initiation were drawn directly from a prophecy of the Tibetan “religious founder”, Padmasambhava, who introduced Vajrayana to the Land of Snows from India in the eighth century:
“When the iron bird flies and the horses roll on wheels … the Dharma will come to the land of the Red Man”
(Bernbaum, 1982, p. 33). The iron birds — in the interpretation of this vision — are airplanes, the wheeled horses are automobiles, and the land of the Red Man (the American Indians) is the United States. During the ritual a falcon with a snake in its claws is supposed to have appeared in the sky. In it the participants saw the mythic bird, garuda, representing the patriarchal power which destroys the feminine in the form of a snake. [4]
Do we have here the image of a tantric wish according to which the West is already supposed to fall into the clutches of Tibetan Buddhism in the near future?”

To All Concerned About the Future of Turtle Island,
This is a very important read to understand what the Tibetans are actually doing on Turtle Island. It is a well developed archetypal pattern.
Read the following article all the way through prayerfully. I am interacting with the article from Tibetan Digital Altar with bracketed comments, a few of my maps, some photos,  the map which I composed which actually takes their map and transposes it over Turtle Island and an earlier map I did of all the Buddhist temples, monasteries, tantric vases, sand mandalas, stupas, blood relic tour and Buddhist “art exhibits.”
 Here’s one map I put together of just the sand mandalas (red dots) and the tantric vases (green dots) which have been buried across the US.  (Does not include the overlay of the transposed nailed down body of the demoness (see below).

They are masters of ritual defilement. I still don’t know why so many have been blinded to this defiant act against the MOST HIGH YHWH. For years we have warned to little avail. Btw, I have since discovered that early on Tantric Buddhism was schooled by the Jesuits in organizing their monastic forces. No wonder they love working together. Such a veil has been drawn over the masses. Only YHWH can remove it. So here’s their research:
[For future reference, notice that the demoness is nailed down and her head is geomatically oriented to the northeast].
{Before you read the following, watch my overview video that I had put together a number of years ago. This will give you a perspective on what you are about to read. I just ran across the text from Digital Tibetan Altars website the other day, many years after I pieced together the other video, so you’ll see that it fills in many of the blanks and actually confirms what I had surmissed to be true.
This is taken from the site Digital Tibetan Altar. It’s not an easy read, but you get a fuller idea of the basis of their worldview. Warning. All this is basically what one would call geomancy, which deals with manipulation of the order of God, in other words it is occultic, magic in so many words:
“In our first articles on this subject, Tibetan Geomancy, and Tibetan Geomancy: Part Two, we have been exploring rudimentary themes. In the instant post, we are going to explore these themes in a bit more depth, by taking comparative notice of Chinese and Indian geomancy. Once again, “geomancy” is an uncomfortable word as applied in either case, but we use it for the sake of handiness, albeit incorrectly. We are going to begin with a quick look at what the Chinese call wu hsing, the Indians call  panchabhuta, and everybody else calls the “five elements.”
I suppose the threshold question is, who got what from where?
I doubt we can answer that question by opening books. The hermeneutical hunt for India’s first Chinese visitor, or China’s first Indian visitor, depends upon deciphering archaic allusions in Indian texts, Chinese texts, and those of the Greeks and Romans. Until we get the lexicology well in hand we will be crossing this part of history the way a small boy crosses a creek, by hopping from stone to stone. I mention this simply because we cannot claim to know whether — as it is applied to geomancy, and strictly in that sense only — the Chinese dragged five element theory back from India, or the Indians dragged it home from China. We can suspect the Chinese received it from India, and chances are we can make a convincing argument, but we cannot be absolutely certain.
In part, this is because India’s five elements and China’s five elements are rather different from one another. The Indian panchabhuta are earth, water, air, fire, and space. The Chinese wu hsing are wood, fire, earth, metal, water. They are not only different in a component sense, but as we shall see, they are regarded differently.
Wu hsing theory seems to arise in China somewhere between 350 BCEand 270 BCE, during the lifetime of the scholar Tsou Yen. You can get some argument about that, pushing the date back to before 400 BCE, but the later dates are substantially established. Of Tsou Yen, the great Cambridge historian Joseph Needham writes:
“If he was not the sole originator of Five-Element theory, he systematized and stabilised ideas on the subject which had been floating about, especially in the eastern seaboard States of Chhi and Yen, for not more than a century at most before his time.”
So, what did Tsou Yen understand as wu hsing? The character wu is simple: it is the cardinal number five. The character hsing demands elaboration. In antiquity, hsing was a pictograph representing a cross-roads or confluence of courses. It is a radical character which at its root has come to mean motility: to do, to act, to walk, to travel. It can also be taken to mean process, conduct, behavior, or way, which definitions should be enough to sketch the sort of thoughts and images Chinese philosophers have grouped behind this radial.
Taking its pictographic sense together with the common denominator of its usage over many centuries, I have always translated hsing as “course” when used in the context here discussed. Thus, for me, the wu hsing are the “five courses.”
For the rest of the world, “five elements” is the preferred translation, to be taken in either one of two ways. “Elements,” as in elemental or fundamental, and having an active sense, or “elements” as on passive substances, the latter idea being a product of component symbolisms. Use of the term “five elements” is so pervasive one can hardly expect to root it out. One occasionally also sees “five agents,” “five forces,” “five processes,” “five qualities,” or “five properties,” which are just variations on the same theme. There is also an earlier concept, the wu cai, or five materials upon which all human existence depends, and some have suggested this is the origin of the wu hsing.
No matter how we translate the term, what we are really talking about are five basic categories or taxonomic indica under which mutually dependent phenomena having related characteristics can be classed, each evolving to the next in cyclic order.
Before delving into the issue of order, I want to stop and take notice of the panchabhuta, or the pancha mahabhutas. “Pancha” simply means five. The Sanskrit word “bhuta” can have several meanings, but the root meanings are truth, reality, natures, that which anything consists of, i.e. elemental, or that which is self-evident. So, in the sense of the mahabhutas, “great” or “gross” bhutas, we are seeing five self-evident natures that all things consist of.
The mahabhutas are recognized in the Vedic age. Just exactly where, I cannot say, because I simply have not studied the matter. They obviously predate the wu hsing, which fall in the Maurya Empire according to Indian reckoning, by a considerable margin. Almost certainly, the concept arises from the Vedic nature deities.
What the early Chinese know as feng shui, the Indians approach as vastushastra, or the science of vastu. This is said to have originated with the Sthapatya Veda, which is a part of Atharva Veda. This would date it to somewhere around the  classical Mantra period of Vedic Sanskrit, at the end of second millennium BCE. The term itself could be translated as the “science of abiding,” or the “science of dwellings,” and actually forms the basis of architecture. The idea is quite probably intertwined with the concept of “lord architect of the world” Viśvákarma, and the relations between his five children. Later, it comes to be associated with Brahma, and a number of other gods. It really does not have anything to do with “geomancy” at all — neither does feng shui for that matter — but, since the late twentieth century, that is a word we have connected with the practice.
In the initial stages, vastu is concerned with the effect of light on man-made structures: with the efficient use of sunlight. However, at a very early date in its development — and again, I do not know exactly when: although certainly prior to Buddhism — it comes to be founded on the fundamental concept of balance — or properly speaking, harmony — between structures and the mahabhutas. I should probably mention that this is with narrow reference to construction. Classical vastu does not entertain the notion of “improving” structures that already exist.
Earlier, we mentioned order. In Chinese practice, the five elements are believed to relate to one another in particular orders. These orders are origination order, which expresses how the elements arise; mutual production order, which expresses how they act to produce each other; mutual destruction order, which expresses how they act to overcome one another; controlling order, which expresses how they interact with each other; masking order, which is another expression of interaction, and common, or “modern” order, which is simply a means of listing them.
[JCS: Sounds like the New World Order doesn’t it?]

In Tibetan practice, these orders are expressed as “affinities,” so we see concepts like “mother” (in early Sino-Tibetan practice “father”) “filial,” “friend,” and “enemy.” All of these various orders are common enough in the literature that I am not eager to reproduce them here. Still, I know my readers well enough to realize you will complain if I do not.

[1] Mutual Production Order

  • Wood produces Fire
  • Fire Produces Earth
  • Earth produces Metal
  • Metal produces Water
  • Water produces Wood

[2] Mutual Destruction Order

  • Wood destroys Earth
  • Earth destroys Water
  • Water destroys Fire
  • Fire destroys Metal
  • Metal destroys Wood

[3] Controlling Order

  • Wood destroys Earth, Metal controls Wood
  • Metal destroys Wood, Fire controls Metal
  • Fire destroys Metal, Water controls Fire
  • Water destroys Fire, Earth controls Water
  • Earth destroys Water, Wood controls Earth

[4] Masking Order

  • Wood destroys Earth, Fire produces Earth and masks
  • Metal destroys Wood, Water produces Wood and mask
  • Fire destroys Metal, Earth produces Metal and masks
  • Water destroys Fire, Wood produces Fire and masks
  • Earth destroys Water, Metal produces Water and masks

So, from these, the Tibetans deduced their systems of water being the mother of wood, wood being the son of water, water being the friend of earth,  earth being the enemy of water, and so forth. How this might come about is interesting. Originally, filial concepts were attached to the trigrams. We had a father, a mother, eldest son, middle son, youngest son, eldest daughter, second daughter, youngest daughter. Those on the father’s side are yang, those on the mother’s side are yin. So, as applied to the elements, this becomes parent, child, enemy and friend.

[1] Mother

  • Mother of Wood is Water
  • Mother of Water is Metal
  • Mother of Metal is Earth
  • Mother of Earth is Fire
  • Mother of Fire is Wood

[2] Child

  • Child of Wood is Fire
  • Child of Fire is Earth
  • Child of Earth is Metal
  • Child of Metal is Water
  • Child of Water is Wood

[3] Enemy

  • Enemy of Wood is Metal
  • Enemy of Metal is Fire
  • Enemy of Fire is Water
  • Enemy of Water is Earth
  • Enemy of Earth is Wood

[4] Friend

  • Friend of Wood is Earth
  • Friend of Earth is Water
  • Friend of Water is Fire
  • Friend of Fire is Metal
  • Friend of Metal is Wood
The importance of the elements in Chinese practice is with exclusive reference to these orders. The importance of the elements in Indian practice is with reference to appreciation of individual potency. The Chinese believe in movement, whereas the Indians seem to be following set rules. One source gives the following example:

“Energy is primarily considered as emanating from the northeast corner and many site and building characteristics are derived from this. Sites sloping down towards north or east from higher levels of south and west are considered good. Open spaces in site and openings in the building are to be more in the north and east than in the south and the west. No obstacles are to be present in the north and the east. Levels and height of buildings are to be higher in the south and west when compared to the north and east. The southwest corner is to be the highest, followed by southeast, then by northwest and finally by northeast. The triangle formed by joining the southwest, southeast and the northwest corner of the site is attributed to the moon and the triangle formed by joining the northeast, northwest and southeast corner of the site is attributed to the sun. The former are prescribed to be heavier and higher and the latter light and lower. Sites having a longer east-west axis are considered better. The diagonal connecting southwest and northeast is to be longer than the diagonal connecting southeast and northwest. An extended northeast corner is considered beneficial.”

These are the exact conditions followed when building Tibetan temples, even to the present day.In expression of their approach, Indian practitioners developed the Purusha Mandala, which is superimposed on the landscape, and used to orient construction from the ground up.
The “houses” of the Purusha Mandala are fixed. They are represented by a square — symbolizing the earth — imposed on the body of a being. The head is always in the northeast.
[JCS: Here I have turned the Purusha Mandala to match magnetic north in order that one may compare the nailed down demoness I have superimposed over the Map of the United States. You must look carefully, but underneath the transparency are Buddhist temples, centers, monasteries and stupas. It has become more obvious over the years that these religious centers have not been placed in a happenstance manner. As a matter of fact, tantric vases have been buried in every state capital, the US Capitol, major rivers, lakes, mountain peaks, national parks and sacred places across the US. The US is the first country they have totally completed].

Do you recall how I had earlier pointed out that the Dalai Lama’s American Headquarters is in upper state New York?

[JCS: Therefore the Dalai Lama’s American Headquarters is in Upper State New York at the Namgyal Monastery which is near Ithaca and has been named the new site for the Dalai Lama Center not unlike the Presidential libraries, but for the Dalai Lama. 
mayor-of-ithaca-welcomes-the-construction-of-a-presidential-like-library-center-for-the-study-of-all-the-dalai-lamas-in-ny
“Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick announced that the Dalai Lama selected the town of Ithaca from dozens of cities to be the site of an international center for Buddhism. The cultural center — called “His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama’s Library and Museum” — will be built on South Hill. Myrick says that the library and museum will contain “the writings, teachings, and artifacts of all 14 Dalai Lamas,” referring to the monks who have served as the spiritual leaders of Tibetan Buddhism for centuries.”
The “being” is said to be  formless spirit who blocked heaven from earth, and had to be subdued by Brahma and the other gods. So, each geomantic house is ruled by a particular god, with Brahma in the center. Thus:

  • North is ruled by Kubera, the lord of wealth.
  • South is ruled by Yama, the lord of death.
  • East is ruled by Indra, the solar deity.
  • West is ruled by Varuna, the lord of water.
  • Northeast is ruled by Shiva.
  • Southeast is ruled by Agni, the deity of fire.
  • Northwest is ruled by Vayu, lord of the winds.
  • Southwest is ruled by Niruthi, lord of ancestors.
  • The center is ruled by Brahma.

Apart from its mythological structure, this mandala is actually the framework for an exquisitely detailed set of mathematical rules, having nothing to with elements, but everything to do with hard measurement.

[JCS: Btw, Kathmandu Valley in Nepal is laid out according to a giant mandala].

In parts one and two of our little survey of Tibetan geomancy, we have been discussing Queen Kon-jo. When Wengchen Kon-jo comes to Tibet from China, in 641 CE, her geomantic masterpiece — or metaphor — is the siting of Lhasa’s central temple, Jokhang.

The story is that Kon-jo determined Tibet’s landforms resembled a demoness lying on her back, so various smaller temples and stupas had to be constructed before Jokhang could be successfully completed.

When we examine this approach in contrast with the Purusha Mandala, it certainly becomes suggestive, doesn’t it?

Chinese and Indian approaches were tossed into Tibet’s cultural grinder, with the eventual result that spirits of the earth were now being dredged up and subdued according to a moving position.

The concept of the grid is coming from India, but the concept of motion is coming from China. Basically, the grid is being laid on a site, and four corners are assigned.

The southeast corner is fire, the southwest corner is the demoness, the northwest corner is wind, and the northeast corner is power. The spirit — by this time a naga — is believed to rotate within this square according to the season, and even, as some would have it, according to the year, month, day and hour. The grid is divided into some 8,000 parts, the head of the spirit is aligned, and a “vital point” is established — usually in the spirit’s armpit — where the first disturbance of the soil is to occur.

[JCS: Notice that the demoness is literally nailed to the earth].

It is right about here that we begin to think about the difference between gross and subtle elements, and their lasting — if not thoroughly troublesome — metaphor, the relationship between seen and unseen: the relationship between men and spirits.

[JCS: Notice that in the demoness’ right side a hole is dug into the earth and a tantric vase is buried in the earth. This looks precisely like one of the 6,000 ritual vases made in Bhutan that are being buried all over the world.

The Dalai Lama even placed one in Westminster Cathedral. One is also buried in Washington, DC near the National Christmas Tree and Washington Monument or Baal’s shaft].

Of spirits, in Chinese, Tibetan, and Indian practice, one could write an almost endless number of volumes.

At the very least, maybe we will get around to a few paragraphs in a future post.[JCS: So why the Kalachakra in Washington, DC?

US Map Work on Tantric Buddhist sand mandalas, stupas, vases, and blood relic tours
 
by James C. Stephens

Over the years I have compiled maps on the locations where Tibetan sand mandalas have been constructed by traveling teams of Tibetan lamas from various monasteries and tour groups. Some have been financed by Richard Gere, others are by invitation from the US Federal, State and local governments, universities. Churches have also invited them in to be built as well as museums, festivals, wherever they find receptive sponsors.

At the Seventh International Conference on Buddhist Christian Dialogue held at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, one session held off campus at Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple in Hacienda Heights focused on the “Mandalization of US Politics.”  Sand mandalas involve a ritual of territorial possession and are highly organized metaphysically and have even involved their enemies blood mingled with the sand according to Dalton in his well documented and researched book, Taming of Demons which focuses on the altars of blood Tibetan Buddhists were actively building whose documents were discovered in the Dunhuang Caves in China on the Silk Road.
Here are some links to the maps that I have worked on over the years, which do not include some of my earlier renditions that I tracked by hand on a map of the United States of the first flurry of 300 sand mandalas financed by the Richard Gere Foundation’s Mystical Arts and Sacred Dance tour of the Drepung Monks way back when. Some of the maps also include the Heart Shrine Relic Tour of Buddhist blood and relics, the burying of tantric vases under the program called Siddhartha’s intent out of Bhutan.
All of these are leading to a culmination of their dark spiritual work to the Maitreya Project being built in Bodh Gaya, India where the Dalai Lama will preside over the Kalachakra initiation beginning in January 2017.
1)This map was put together at the last election in 2012 where many mandalas were built in State Capital Buildings and in Universities where the Presidential debates took place. Unfortunately, both political parties are involved at the highest levels in opening doors to the Tibetan practices that they accept as cultural, without any proper understanding of the deeper spiritual implications of the defilement of the land by idolatry disguised as art. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1uhd_FaOxAtBqvRXPch_3cxks1J0&usp=sharing

High Holy Days and Sand Mandala at Pico Union Project

March 19 2014 The Ten Commandments Photo iNote: I wrote this letter to Craig Taubman at Pico Union Project hoping to get a response on my concerns about his invitation to Tibetan lamas to build a sand mandala during the High Holy Days. I also expressed my objections to the questionable interfaith model he is building and desires to see reproduced across the nation.

Sincerely,

Dear Craig,

My name is James Stephens. I came across your website recently and was quite interested in your efforts to restore Sinai Synagogue, the historic site of Los Angeles’ first Synagogue. At the same time, I was quite dismayed to hear that you had invited Tibetan Buddhist lamas to build a sand mandala in the midst of the High Holy Days.

Why might you ask? As a former devout Buddhist of fourteen years and now a follower of Yeshua Ha’Moshiach and a Torah observant believer, I found myself grieved knowing much about the intent of the lama’s ritual having thoroughly studied it for over 25 years.

First of all, I do believe in the command to love one’s neighbor as thyself. To genuinely love one’s neighbor, one must be truthful. You have children. You know that they venture into areas which can cause them great harm. We tell them, “Don’t touch the oven. You’ll get burned. It’s hot.” As they grow older, they make their own decisions and often reap the blessings or pay the consequences for their poor choices.

I love the lyrics composed by Paul Simon, “Fools,” said I, “you do not know, Silence like a cancer grows/ Hear my words that I might teach you/Take my arms that I might reach you” /But my words like silent raindrops fell/ And echoed in the wells of silence./ And the people bowed and prayed/to the Neon god they made/and the sign flashed out its warning/in the words that it was forming/and the sign said, “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls/And tenement halls/And whispered in the sound of silence.”

Etched over the arch of one of the entries to LA City Hall the words of King Solomon remind us like those prophets, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). Matthew Henry commenting on this wisdom said, “An upright man will venture the displeasure of the greatest to bring truth to light.”

Personally, I know little about your life story except that which I gleaned after visiting your site. I did read that you like to hear others stories. As a former Buddhist and graduate of a Buddhist institution, married to a Messianic Jewish wife whose father was a holocaust survivor, I clearly recognize the barriers that exist between human beings because of their ethnic and religious make-up. I also recognize that it takes courage and time to get to know one’s neighbor, neighbors that often come from very different backgrounds.

In 1993, I attended the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago in order to get a face to face perspective on other’s beliefs and a sense of who they were, what their story was. For ten days, I intently listened and asked questions about their beliefs. While talking with a Burmese Buddhist monk, we quickly cleared the air about the use of politically correct religious speech and agreed that it was often harmful to genuine understanding. We agreed that Buddhism and Christianity both held to exclusive religious points of view and were diametrically opposed to one another. With clear boundaries established, we could respect one another and talk about our fundamental issues as human beings.

One Buddhist monk at Wat Thai Temple in North Hollywood invited me inside the temple and asked me to “tell him the story of creation.” He even asked me to read the Scriptures to him in between his interaction with worshippers in his context.

During the Ten Days of Awe, I pulled out an old sermon entitled, “The Necessity of Self-Examination” by Jonathan Edwards, one of America’s greatest theologians. It was based upon his meditations on Psalm 139 verses 23-24. “Search me O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts; and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” I love King David, a man of God’s own heart, a shepherd boy who listened intently to God, and as any human is capable of, ended up making some very tragic choices. His adultery and pre-meditated murder of his loyal commander Uriah was the first time I wept reading the Bible. I was grieved. Our spiritual leaders are supposed to hold to the highest standards, and here he falls. He confesses, “Against Thee and Thee only have I sinned and done this evil in Your sight.”

Edwards shines the looking glass on our hearts and observes, “Many are very careful that they do not proceed in mistakes, where their temporal interest is concerned. They will be strictly careful that they be not led on blindfold in the bargains which they make: in their traffic one with another, they are careful to have their eyes about them and to see that they go safely in these cases; and why not, where the interest of their soul is concerned?”

“Good fences make good neighbors.” Old proverbs are the currency of years of experience. When the young King Rehoboam went his own way, neglecting the counsel of his elders and just listening to those in his new inner circle, he went astray. He did not finish well. One quote of Rabbi David Wolpe resonated with me when I read Ellul’s Jewels, “Our darkness and sins are part of us, stitched into our soul.” Jeremiah the prophet wrote, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.” (Jeremiah 17:9-10).

When I was at the Parliament, there were many experimental exercises in Interfaith worship. Exercises that I as a former Buddhist knew intimately and now as a follower of Yeshua Ha’Moshiach (Jesus Christ) could not embrace. I witnessed persons from other faiths who chose not to be involved as well because of their religious convictions. They were respectful, but they also were in a temporary venue which had established certain ground rules. Unfortunately, even then participants were encouraged to sign “The Declaration of a Global Ethic” which read that “we embrace the practices of all the world’s religions.” From my extensive past experience of all sorts of religious practices, I could not sign it as a follower of Yeshua Ha’Moshiach.

All ground is not holy ground. When a Tibetan Buddhist builds a sand mandala, they conduct rituals to bind demons from entering them and subjugate all other gods under their dominion. It is a religious portal, a palace, home to 722 deities depending on the type of mandala. Deities we would call fallen angels. In the dissolution ceremony the sand that is given to others carries with it the incantations of the Lamas. In the past, the sand mandalas were constructed with the blood of human sacrifices. According to John Huntington from Ohio State University and curator of the Himalayan Art Collection, “the most efficacious skull used in the mandalas were the skull of a sixteen year old virgin.” These are not my opinions, but are based upon interviews with Lamas at Pacific Asia Museum who construct the mandalas and from extensive reading of Buddhist documents as well. To the public the mandalas are intriguing works of art. Is what I say true?

As a watchman, someone who has knowledge of various practices, it is my duty to warn others, especially leaders, lest the blood be on my own hands (Ezekiel 33). I do not want to displease Hashem in anyway. Tibetans are often cheerful and amiable people. I have hosted Tibetan Christians in our home and have also been asked by Tibetan Buddhists for the Scriptures and even went as far as I delivering a copy to Kopan Gompa, a Tibetan Buddhist temple outside of Kathmandu, Nepal.

You were quoted as saying that you wanted to create, “neutral ground in which to work on interfaith connections and collaboration between Jews, Christians, Muslims and others without any limitation or ground rules.” That sounds like a prescription for a dangerous fall. One must ask oneself, “What am I seeking to accomplish when I assimilate other religion’s practices into my daily life?” While God has given man free will, Is it just to take others on your own personal quest? It is certain that teachers bear greater judgment.

Boundaries are critical. When an epidemic is being treated, the one treating the disease must be careful lest he become a victim. You were quoted in an article for JTA as saying, “You can’t expect the world to love each other if you can’t model it in your houses of worship. At such point in time that our houses of worship become more open, on that day, God will be one and God’s name will be one. It’s only at that point that it can happen.”

My opinion is not what is important here in response. God said through His prophet Isaiah, “I am the LORD, that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols” (Isaiah 42:8). “God does not tolerate rivals (Nahum 1:2) Jamieson-Faucet and Brown comment, “We are jealous only of those we love: a husband, of a wife; a king of his subject’s loyalty. God is jealous of men because He loves them. God will not bear a rival in His claims on them.”

The most important question to be answered is “What does the LORD require of me? “To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8; Jeremiah 7:5-7; Leviticus 19:33-34). You were quoted as saying, “Let people model it in their own houses of worship.” My question is, “Why bring into one place every religious practice and belief?” The LORD said, “When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there” (Deuteronomy 18:9). King Solomon said, “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is death.” Even then, being the wisest man on earth, did he not fall because he took on so many wives and accommodated their religious practices, building high places and idols for each of them to practice their faith? It may be that it is time to remember what Moses was given by Adonai on Mount Sinai, the original gathering place lest we replace Him with our own modern day version of the Golden Calf.

“For they went and served other gods and worshipped them, gods that they did not know and that He had not given to them. And the LORD uprooted them from their land in anger, in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 29:26).

“Cursed is the one who makes a carved or molded image, an abomination to the LORD, the work of the hands of a craftsman, and set it up in secret. And all the people shall say, Amen.” (Deuteronomy 27:15).

And yet if we repent, He waits for us to return to Him and promises,

“And if you faithfully obey the voice of the Lord your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God” (Deuteronomy 28:1-2).

2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 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:

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

RED ALERT WDC ~ The Fear of the LORD

The Fear of the LORD

by James Stephens

Friday, July 15, 2011

A nation drinks a cup it has filled with  its own sin and iniquity. We are all guilty. None of us is innocent. Why do the nations conspire against YHWH and against YESHUA His Anointed One? Nationalism aside. Patriotism aside. Partisanship aside. Kiss the Son, less you perish.

Today, ask yourselves, whom do we serve? This day you must choose. Friday, July 15, a full moon is the half way mark of 2011. The Nation is divided as the President and Congress claim time is running out and face a potential  “economic Armageddon.”  While nearby at the Verizon Center the XIV Dalai Lama, the Kalachakra Master,  sits as the “time god” on the Shambhala Kingdom’s Throne empowering over 10,000 initiates from around the globe, including oracles, shamans,  lamas, an American judge, a former Catholic Bishop. The pluralist pope of peace  invokes over 722 deities, we would call demons, and conducts the Kalachakra (time god) Tantra for the thirty first time (1,500,000  initiates),  ritual rites of possession over the land,  to empower the Adi Buddha, the universal religious emperor, aka the XIV Dalai Lama of Tibet.

Where are the consecrated prayer warriors of old engaging the purveyors of idolatry on our soil in Washington, DC? They cry out from their brittle bones,

“There are giants in the land! BUT FAR GREATER IS HE WHO SITS ON HIS THRONE IN HEAVEN. We are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus our LORD and ask for a release the FEAR OF YHWH UPON WASHINGTON, DC.

Please pray for us in these hours. I need my arms lifted up. I am weary in this battle. 10,000 initiates, including oracles, shamans, and  lamas wage a dark ritual of devilish design in Washington,  DC. Release wisdom and the FEAR of YHWH.

“Standing with you. YHWH raises up a standard against the enemy.”

“Where are the young warriors?

Where two or three are gathered before Your Throne Yeshua, You are there. We agree whatever is bound on earth it shall be done in heaven. Bind these imposters, these principalities and powers who are keeping Your Tibetan, Mongolian, Bhutanese, Nepalese, Sinhalese, Indian, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean in bondage. Set the captives free!

“Jesus is LORD. Fear not and fret not. Though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”

“I see Mt. Carmel. I see the thundering rivers of living water that come from His mouth, sweeping and cleansing that which the enemy would seek to flood the nation with. Father we release the Living Waters from Your Throne. We and the atmospheres of the earth reject what the enemy would seek to release. LORD we release Your mighty warrior/binding angels to seal and hold and lock shut every demonic portal open and that they’d seek to open. We loose Your light and salvation over every human soul trapped by the lies of Buddhism.”

“Remember Eagle Rock. Proclaim that He is mightier. “Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Behold all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing, and will perish.”  Isaiah 41:10-11

“Thus you shall say to them, “The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth shall perish from the earth and from under the heavens.” Jeremiah 10:11.”

“Every man is stupid, devoid of knowledge; Every goldsmith is put to shame by his idols; For his molten images are deceitful, and there is no breath in them. They are worthless, a work of mockery; In the time of their punishment they will perish.”

I don’t have many visions, am conservative, but the LORD does give me assignments and at times reveals great things. I had a vision sometime back. I was out on a ledge laying out prostrate on a high place.  On my left from below there were all sorts of foul demons, dragons coming at me. All of the sudden, I looked before me and saw a supernatural, transparent cross and from on high heard amazing thunder from the heavens. And then I was filled with the awesome FEAR OF THE LORD. It flooded my being and I was in absolute AWE of HIS MAJESTY and in Esctasy. The demons fled His PRESENCE immediately. They could not behold HIM. There is NOTHING to Fear, EXCEPT YHWH. He then opened my eyes to the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica, West Los Angeles, the Miracle Mile, Downtown Los Angeles, Glendale, Universal City. Immediately a remarkable shimmering cloud of glory was over the entire area. I then awoke, trembling and full of His awesome Presence. I will never forget the vision.

“There is much prayer being lifted along with the binding here on earth of the demons that have already been bound in heaven. I’m standing beside you.”

“EL ELYON, EL CHAY, we stand with You. You and Your desire to release the Living Waters of Your Creative Voice on the earth and as those to whom You have given authority over creation, we reject which Satan would desire to release unto the earth. We say, NO! But as we are seated with You now in heavenly places in Christ, we come into agreement here on the planet with Your desire in Him and we say, COME! COME! COME! Have Your Way. Have Your Rule.

“And we step by the Spirit into Him and lay hold of DC and the Nation and those moving in the power of darkness. We lay hold of Your Light, Righteousness, Peace, Joy, Holiness, and Love. And we wrap it around them. We invite it in and about them.  We release the vibration of the sound of Your Voice and we welcome You, Ruach Ha’Kodesh at a HOLY higher level to come and brood over that gathering and all its global participants. We release the testimony of the blood of Jesus.”

On Wednesday night there were 1304 lightning strikes on Washington, DC after the National Gatekeepers asked for a release from HIS storehouses, an open display of His displeasure that many Buddhists would be convicted of their sin and be brought to repentance.

Be not be partakers of her plagues. They drink a cup, not His cup. A cup filled with their own designs, greed, avarice, and lust for power. They do not have an ear to hear. They play to crowds saying whatever pleases them. A Golden cup.  A golden calf.

Moses descends with two stone  tablets engraved by the Finger of YHWH to offer  Torah to the people.  In his absence, they instead choose to worship a god of their own making.

15And  Mosheh  turned  and  went  down from  the  mountain,  and  in  his  hand  were the   two   tablets   of   the   Witness,   tablets written on both their sides, written on the one and on the other. 16And   the   tablets   were   the   work   of Elohim, and the writing was the writing of Elohim engraved on the tablets.

19And it came to be, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. And Mosheh’s displeasure burned, and he threw the tablets out of his hands  and  broke  them  at  the  foot  of  the mountain.

And  he  took  the  calf  which  they  had made, and burned it in the fire, and ground it into powder, and scattered it on the face of  the  water  and  made  the  children  of Yisra’el drink it.”

If you will not have communion with the LORD, you have chosen to take the cup of wrath filled with the abominations of your own choosing.

In 2003, I attended the International Buddhist Film Festival at the LA County Museum of Art.  Most of the festival had seemed to be fairly typical as far as film festivals went, except the films and cartoons were built around Buddhist themes. That was until the showing of the documentary film on the Kalachakra directed and produced by Werner Herzog. The crowd that turned out that night was seriously dark. I had arrived later than I anticipated and as I was walking towards the back of the line had occasion to pass by those who were attending that evening. Well dressed, many in black, it seemed that I had stepped into another dimension of darkness. What was it? It was as if I was experiencing, not in myself, but sensing the total absence of the Holy Spirit.  Many in the crowd had already attended the Kalachakra Ceremony in various places around the globe and were gathering to watch one of their own. I was alone.

BUT, what will it be like for them who worship Tibet’s Golden Calf and are partakers of the vile tantric cup of demons, when they stand before the THRONE of the LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH?

Satan, Principalities, Powers, and Demons flee before the PRESENCE OF THE HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, SET APART ONE, BY THE PERFECT SACRIFICE OF  YESHUA HA’MOSHIACH, JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH. BY HIS BLOOD WE ARE SAVED.

…YHWH…
