Almanacs, Divination and Babylon

ALMANACS: As American as Babylon
ALMANACS: As American as Babylon

Ever wonder why ALMANACS are so popular in America? Why they have been promoted so?

Almanacs are just one more way to mainstream the occult (astrology) into everyday life as something normal and good–just as horoscopes are part of most daily newspapers.

The origins of the almanac can be connected to ancient Babylonian astronomy, when tables of planetary periods were produced in order to predict lunar and planetary phenomena. Similar treatises called Zij were later composed in medieval Islamic astronomy. The modern almanac differs from Babylonian, Ptolemaic and Zij tables in the sense that “the entries found in the almanacs give directly the positions of the celestial bodies and need no further computation”,

Almanacs are a form of occult divination. Those who partake of such things get their knowledge from demonic sources. But those who devise almanacs pretend they get their calculations from many different sources and that somehow science is involved.

This super-special formula was devised in 1792, by the Almanac’s founder Robert B. Thomas. A “top secret mathematical and astronomical formula, which relies on sunspot activity, tidal action, planetary position and many other factors,” to do what science believes impossible: predict long term patterns in weather. This in turn helps farmers, you know, farm.

Almanacs are charts compiled from divination (fortune-telling), which the Bible strictly forbids. Divination is put into the same category as witchcraft and sacrificing one’s children to demons. In fact, divination is an integral part of witchcraft and sorcery.

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
–Deuteronomy 18:10-12

Do Americans even care?

One suspects many Americans would offer a blood sacrifice to a demon in exchange for the best time to plant potatoes.

Some churches promote almanac use as a form of “old-fashioned values.”  Which makes sense: churches are largely pagan temples.

Almanacs are just one more thing from American life which can be traced back to Babylon.

“Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
–Revelation 18:10,23

Is the reader a casual slave to occult practices?

Does the reader look to God Almighty or Babylon for information and deliverance?

“Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.”
–Psalm 50:22

Today is still yet a day of mercy for all who are enemies of God.

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
–2Corinthians 4:3

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19

The Gospel is Hidden to Those who are Lost
