“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.” ~ Revelation 22:14-15
They that do his commandments have the right to The Tree of Life (symbolic of eternal life…ie. The Garden Of Eden, so long as we had access to it’s fruit we lived forever…hence the reason we were banned from the garden, that which is imperfect or fallen is not granted eternal life) and to live in The City Of God, also called The New Jerusalem.
But those without . . .without (outside) the city, not allowed in …but also those without his commandments, which is Wisdom and Truth, The ONE Way, The ONLY Way… are:
- Dogs…meaning such persons who, in a spiritual sense, are comparable to dogs. A dog is a scavenger and will eat any ol’ filthy thing…I’ve had dogs who will eat cat poop and chicken poop! This is a spiritual picture of one who has no discernment, who will eat any food offered to them (except green beans! every dog I have ever owned has always refused to eat green beans..). Like dogs they run from one place to another looking to stir up mischief, nosing around in your trash trying to see what kind of dirt they can dig up on you…people who falsely attack, accuse and persecute. The most disgusting thing about dogs is that they eat the most disgusting of things (ingesting the spiritual filth of the world and calling it good) and then they vomit it back up … and then they eat it again. eeewwww..
…But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
…While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. ((Whomever “overcomes” you and brings you into submission, it is he whom you will serve…either you submit to God through Jesus His Son or you submit to “The World’s Way” which is by default the way of Satan as it is he who controls this present world system ‘And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.
And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.’ ~Luke 4:5-7))
For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
(2 Peter Chapter 2)
- Sorcerers…whoremongers…murderers…idolators…ALL are characteristics of The Spirit of Anti-Christ. Sorcerers, witches, they that try to work things through their own natural power (the flesh) which is in rebellion to God…For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft , and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry ~1 Samuel 15:23 …this “natural power” involves things like orgiastic sex magic (hence the whoremonger part) and ritualistic human sacrifice (hence the murderer part)…the power of the flesh is that of the seed (semen) and that of the blood…to worship the created things over and above The Creator is the sin of idolatry whose root is found in stubbornness. Like a petulant teenager unwilling to do it His Father’s way, thinking he is somehow smarter doing it his way…but that way only leads to death of the soul, burning in outer darkness. And just because you are not participating in an orgy or drinking blood does not mean you are off the hook…these have deeper hidden roots as well, as a sorcerer or witch hides undercover working behind the scenes to manipulate and control a situation in such a way as to make it benefit them, regardless of “right” or “wrong”…through a perfectly executed lie even a small one, especially a small one with a big impact (ie. mind control, hypnosis, implantation of thoughts etc.) or a slight twisting of the truth or by maintaining an image, a facade, that makes them look all squeaky clean, gaining peoples trust and getting in on their “good graces” while all the while on the inside festering with evil, scheming and conniving to get money or have greater power over their followers or both (televangelists are PERFECT examples of this!) it all has to do with “the image created” VS. Reality…these are all witchcraft and sorcery.
- And last but certainly not least we have this: whosoever loveth and maketh a lie… those who love both to invent and tell lies and love to hear them told by others. And, in our day and age, this is basically EVERYONE and is the root cause of all that comes before it in the Bible verse. The “vomit” that the dog returns to is his own lies…the lies he tells himself (whether conscious or subconscious) to placate his own conscience and justify to himself his evil deeds and the lies which he tells to others, working his sorcery, maintaining the “image”, keeping up appearances. And not just these but those who prefer the lies over The Truth, they that loveth the lie are just as complicit as they that make it…because THE TRUTH is often quite obvious and often quite simple, but too hard to bear for most and so they tell themselves lies…or accept the lies told to them by Hollywood, The Mainstream Media,The Advertising Companies etc… willingly submitting, volunteering even, to be mind controlled; preferring instead to live in a delusional fantasy world instead of facing REALITY as it is! This is ubiquitous here in america, where pretty much everything is a LIE and people believe these lies and accept them as truth and then live life based upon a LIE which creates more lies because everything you now do and say has it’s basis in a lie. It’s a vicious, insidious cycle and deeply ingrained within our culture…lies upon lies upon lies and if you aren’t actively working to dig yourself out from under the avalanche of lies then you are a lover of lies and complicit with those that made them…YOU have no IDEA what REALITY IS!!
