The ME ME ME Generation

THE MAN OF SIN WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME IN THE SELFIE GENERATION
THE MAN OF SIN WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME IN THE SELFIE GENERATION

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
–Proverbs 14:12

The worship of all things self is promoted every day in the Land of the Free. The selfie is the highest art form. Self-esteem is the ultimate goal. Self-awareness is valued above most everything else. It’s the ME ME ME generation, and unlike previous peer groups, this generation is not restricted by age alone.

Admiration, promotion and eventually worship of SELF is the focus of the media/entertainment/culture/education complex.

There’s a goal to this madness.

The new art form for the ME ME ME generation: the dronie or sky selfie

The culture has concentrated on getting people to focus on themselves; to look within themselves.

It’s the goal of the government, media, science, culture, entertainment, technology, and churches. At some point soon, people will be asked to find within themselves their divine spark: that they are a god.  Most will have absolutely no problem doing that.

Their parents and schools have more or less told them they were gods since they were children.

“…and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
Revelation 2:9

The end times are all about the celebration of man: the elevation of man’s “WILL;” the promotion of ME ME ME; the focus on SELF.

When self is the highest authority then anarchy, violence and the law of the jungle will reign–as many can see happening now.

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 I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

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

Eric Hoffer and Self-Worship: The End Times Dragon Cult

Eric Hoffer, Self-Esteem and the End Times“And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
–Genesis 3:4-5

Of all the lies told by the serpent in the garden of Eden, “ye shall be as gods” was surely one of the most seductive.

After all, who doesn’t want to be a god?

And that same lie is still whispered and repeated today. Being your own god is the beginning of self-worship and self-worship is the beginning of dragon (Satan) worship.

And THAT is where the serpent (Satan) was headed in the first place so very, very long ago.

ALL religions–even those who offer one’s SELF as the god–require forerunners.

ERIC HOFFER

​Eric Hoffer was sort of a satanic philosopher–which he would have to be in order to be exalted as he was by the world for his relatively meager accomplishments.

“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own:”
–John 15:19

Hoffer’s magnum opus was True Believer.

The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements (1951)

A core principle in the book is Hoffer’s assertion that mass movements are interchangeable: in the Germany of the 1920s and the 1930s, the Communists and Nazis were ostensibly enemies but routinely swapped members as they competed for the same kind of marginalized, angry people, and fanatical Communists became Nazis and vice versa.

April 8, 1966 - TIME magazine - Is God Dead?

Hoffer emphasized “SELF” (particularly self-esteem) and by doing so heralded not only the Age of Satan (which was announced April 1966 in which SELF is the proclaimed highest sort of god), but also the self-obsessed times in which we live.

It’s little wonder the “selfie” is the pinnacle of modern art in our self-compulsive civilization.

Hoffer was a forerunner for the SELF Society of our present time.

Hoffer argued that fanatical and extremist cultural movements, whether religious or political, arose under predictable circumstances: when large numbers of people come to believe that their individual lives are worthless and ruined, that the modern world is irreparably corrupt, and that hope lies only in joining a larger group that demands radical changes. Hoffer believed that self-esteem and a sense of satisfaction with one’s life was of central importance to psychological well-being.

As such, Hoffer was the forerunner for all of the self-obsessed church-goers who fill the seats in the satanic church system of the end times.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
–Revelation 13:4,7-8

With his celebration of SELF, Eric Hoffer filled a valuable role as satanic forerunner for end times worldwide dragon worship. Dragon worship is centered primarily in the network of pagan temples known as churches. From these demonic centers–where worship of other spirits, witchcraft and SELF already flourishes–end times dragon worship has already spread across the entire world.

In the modern world in which we live, self is exalted because the time of the dragon is nearly at hand. Self-worship is but a stepping stone to the worship of the dragon–which is but a stepping stone to eternal damnation.

“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
–Revelation 20:12,15

IF one is worshiping self, one is deceived.

IF one is worshiping the dragon, one is also deceived. The only difference is the level of self-deception.

There is yet a small window open through which to escape.

But time is grower shorter by the day.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

Tender Mercies of the Lord: Will Not Always Be Available

“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
John 20:31

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 I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
–Proverbs 26:12

US FREEDOM ACT: The bill that allows the NSA to continue to spy on Americans – More freedom through more spying. Now that’s a slogan!

46 percent view a major cyber attack as an act of war – Convenient.  For almost half of the country, there’s no longer any need to kill or stage an attack in order to go to war.  A “major cyber attack” will suffice and of course, the government will inform the country who the culprits were.  Convenient.

Dem Congressman: We’ve proved that Communism works – Well, it depends on one’s definition of “works” is.  But it’s hard to argue otherwise.

83 percent think that Americans are not informed voters – So, pretty much the entire country is convinced that the other guy doesn’t have a clue.  The Corporate Media has done their work well.

Why I Miss Being A Born-Again Christian – Many young people have publicly blamed Ken Ham–but not this one.

This case is a good example of the legions of Americans who felt they were born again because they recited the “sinner’s prayer” at a “revival.”  From the young man’s testimony, he never experienced a new birth.  Now he joins millions of “backsliders” (not a New Testament term) in slandering the Christianity they never knew–but were told they did.

Freedom from the false spirits of Revival

The following information was a great help to me in getting rid of those wild manifestations presented by false revivals and revivalists, teachers, evangelists, apostles and prophets, the big-named elitists as well as those considered  nameless, faceless but false non- the- less, through the word of faith, false prophetic, healing, and all other ungodly teachings and impartations, anointings, giftings and visitations, dreams and visions through improper teaching and improper use of “laying on of hands”, and the anointing with oil,  and by way of agreement and acceptance of these things by the deceived believer.   The demonic, sensual, and much sought after tangible presence of and voice of “god”,  to entice the believer to expect a physical touch, feeling, experience, or emotional response from God, or to speak in other, often several different languages that he himself does not know, otherwise known as “diverse tongues”. Additionally to expect to receive new revelation, gifts, power, authority, and healings, prophetic or creative ability by way of visitation and impartation by angels or by way of impartation by another person individually or through “fire tunnels” who claims the God-given ability to pass these on.

All these have set themselves against the Holiness of all that is God, His deity, person, and presence of the one and only true Holy Spirit and the infallible word of God through salvation by the blood of Jesus Christ and the true message of the Gospel, the way Father God intended from the beginning.

(I think that covers it.)

MAN OF SIN: Self-Worship in America<

I have learned… – A collection of what one writer has learned.  A few samples follow.

I’ve learned- that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back.

I’ve learned- that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I’ve learned- that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you’re down will be the ones to help you get back up.

The Internet seems to be loaded with such sites of self-absorbed youth, anxious to share the experiences of their young jaded lives, all in the name of “helping others” by imparting their “wisdom.”  These sites abound because they pander to the self-absorbed.  They appeal to a person’s ego–both the reader and the writer.

Before the Internet, back in the 1980s, a man by the name of Jack Handey parodied these types of pretensions with his Deep Thoughts.  Here are a few Deep Thoughts.

“I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they’d never expect it.”

“I think people tend to forget that trees are living creatures. They’re sort of like dogs. Huge, quiet, motionless dogs, with bark instead of fur.”

“If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is “God is crying.” And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is “Probably because of something you did.”

“The first thing was, I learned to forgive myself. Then, I told myself, “Go ahead and do whatever you want, it’s okay by me.”

“It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.”

The 1970s and 80s were known as “The Me Generation.”  The self-absorbed of that era was the group at which Handey poked fun.  But the Me Generation were amateurs compared to the Millennial naval-gazing that takes place in 2014 America.The self-absorbed naturally concentrate on themselves. Their journeys are mostly inward and involve self-discovery. Their deep thoughts revolve around themselves, who they are, what they presume, and what they believe.  These self-centered thoughts may passed along to others disguised as “advice.”

The Millennials are the ultimate Me Generation.  Raised on self-esteem, lectured on the benefits of self-actualization, self-awareness and self-aggrandizing: the one trait they seem to lack is self-control.

However, it’s hard to fault the Millennials: they have been programmed by TV, society, their schools, their religions, their culture–even their parents in many cases–to look first to themselves for answers.

It’s no accident that the most celebrated art form of the Millennials is that perfect symbol of self-celebration: the “selfie.”

THE CELEBRATION OF SELF

THE SELFIE: Symbol of a Generation
THE SELFIE: Symbol of a Generation

All the preceding has been noted to make the following observations.

“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.“
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

When the man of sin comes onto the scene, he will appeal to the “good in people.”  Though he will speak great swelling words of a false brotherhood and unity (for all of those who follow him; death for those who disagree), he will invite each person to search for the good that is within. The appeal will be that “You’re a good person.  Unleash the goodness that dwells within for the benefit of all mankind.”

This directly contradicts Christianity, which teaches that man is wicked, sinful and lost without a savior.

PART 4- SELF-WORSHIP PAVES THE WAY FOR THE MAN OF SIN

SELF-WORSHIP AS A WAY STATION TO DRAGON WORSHIP


WISDOM OF THE SELF-CENTERED, BY THE SELF-CENTERED, FOR THE SELF-CENTERED

I have learned… – A collection of what one writer has learned.  A few samples follow.

I’ve learned- that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back.

I’ve learned- that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

This directly contradicts Christianity, which teaches that man is wicked, sinful and lost without a savior.

“there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Romans 3:12

Like many modern church-goers who fancy themselves pastors, prophets and apostles, the man of sin will be loath to talk of sin–unless it’s to slander the saints; i.e., those who disagree.  Sin will not be a condition between God and man, but a condition between man and man–particularly the followers of the man of sin.

Therefore, the man of sin will urge the world to continue its self-absorbed journey inward, to “follow their heart.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Jeremiah 17:9

Contrary to Jeremiah 17:9, a great many Christians justify their ungodly actions or beliefs with the phrase “God knows my heart

“He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.”
Proverbs 28:26

They may think they know their hearts; they certainly do not know their Bibles.  In fact on this subject, at least one atheist knows the Bible better than those whose ultimate authority lies within.

Little-known Bible verses X: Don’t trust your heart

(Of course, the same atheist purports to show that we can save ourselves without God’s help.  Little-known Bible verses: Saving yourself.  The allure of self is attractive even to those who claim no other god.)

But self-celebration and self-worship are not goals: they are only way stations on the road to dragon worship.

SELF-WORSHIP: THE AMERICAN CHURCH

SELF-WORSHIP IN AMERICA: Self-Centered Experience, Revelations and Worship trump the Word of God.
SELF-WORSHIP IN AMERICA: Self-Centered Experiences, Revelations and Worship trump the Word of God.

Much of what passes for American Christianity has been tailor-made for the man of sin–because much of what passes for worship in American churches has degenerated into self-worship and the celebration of self.

Satan’s first step–and his biggest battle–is to get Christians to take their eyes off of Jesus and to focus on self.  After that, the steps to dragon worship come more easily and leisurely.

Many congregations have already journeyed inward.  Subjective experiences, emotions and revelations have replaced the objective Word of God.  Counterfeit spirits are worshiped as the Holy Spirit.

For many, “I feel,” “I think” and “I believe” have become the  forerunners of “I will.”

Jesus becomes an afterthought.  Testimonies are of the “wonderful church” or the “great staff” or the “marvelous praise and worship”–not of the One who is the once and for all perfect sacrifice.

Yoga, prayer circles and prayer labyrinths have all entered American Christianity. All these practices are self-centered.

In other churches, soaking prayer, contemplative prayer, centering prayer are not only used, but are taught.  All are nonbiblical methods of turning prayer inward; of emptying oneself in the name of finding god within.  Jesus told of the dangers of this type of emptying.

“When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house whence I came out. And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished. Then goeth he, and taketh to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.”
Luke 11:24-26

When the man of sin arrives, he will find a great many Americans swept and garnished and waiting.

Frankly, those who indulge in Contemplative prayer and walk Labyrinths to get a buzz for Jesus are no better off than winos mumbling and stumbling through a maze of darkened downtown streets only to wind up languishing alone on cardboard beds beneath bridges and between buildings, because the end is the same – confusion, delusion, depression and death. They’re not following Christ or obeying His Word, they’re only junkies chasing a high and running from the reality of their own rebellion by attempting to anesthetize their pain and escape accountability – all the while justifying themselves by sorting through the conjectural compost of beard-stroking street urchins and calling it “Emergent conversation.”
Contemplative Spirituality – The Latest ‘Christian’ Craze

The modern American Church is largely a self-absorbed one: eager for experiences, revelations and spiritual thrills, chills and spills.  It’s little wonder that mysticism–with its subjective truth and its dependence on self–has made a big comeback in the 21st century American Church.

As has extreme asceticism. Yes, the Christian is to deny himself.  But when the emphasis shifts to self-justification through the purification rituals and practices of man, then the focus is off of Jesus and onto man.

Light shows, thumping bass, drums, repetitive chants: manipulating the atmosphere to alter perceptions fools many modern American church-goers into believing that they have experienced a “move of God’ when all they have experienced is an altered reality–as any dance club veteran can attest.

CONCLUSION:

THE MAN OF SIN: RIGHT AT HOME

THE MAN OF SIN WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME IN THE SELFIE GENERATION
THE MAN OF SIN WILL FEEL RIGHT AT HOME IN THE SELFIE GENERATION

The man of sin will feel right at home in the Selfie Generation.

He will also feel right at home in America: a land not only of the self-made man but a master of turning vice into virtue.

Exhibit A: Nowhere else is the sin of Pride exalted more than in America, where “Proud to be an American” is both a motto and and a way of life.

Exhibit B: Almost every American commercial ad is a celebration of sin and appeals to either the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye or the pride of life.

The man of sin will fit right in.

The “selfie” generation is a fertile field for the man of sin. And self-reliant America, as the ultimate home of countless “pull-yourself-up-by-your-own bootstraps” self-motivators, presents itself an inviting base of operations for the one who shall come in his own name.

And lest there be those who are self-satisfied because they are older: the self-absorbed observe no age limit.

The “selfie” generation is not age-specific.

It includes quite a lot of older Americans.

Some of whom are Christians, some not.

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
