What about Myths?
Great question! Let’s see what the Bible has to say. (January, 2020)
“7 But reject profane and old wives' fables, and exercise yourself toward godliness.” (1 Timothy 4:7)
“3 As I urged you when I went into Macedonia--remain in Ephesus that you may charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which cause disputes rather than godly edification which is in faith.” (1 Timothy 1:3-4)
“3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” (2 Timothy 4:3-4)
God through Paul talks a lot about how He hates the myths of all pagan/demon-embracing cultures, and warns all God-fearing Bible-believers to flee those myths of the devil. Why? Because they constantly falsely accuse God of things He doesn’t do and never would do, while excusing the devil for his sins and crimes.
“12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. 13 Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. 15 Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death. 16 Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.” (James 1:12-16)
You can find more of those teachings in many places, here are just a few: 1st Timothy 3-4,specifically chapter 4, verses 6-8. You also find this teaching even more explained in 2nd Timothy 3 and 4 and 1st Timothy 6 (specifically chapter 6, verses20-21). Whenever you come across a “new” myth (usually a rewrite of an old myth/pagan-religion), know this – God has already answered that one in His Word, the Bible. All you have to do is find someone who knows where that passage(s) is/are, or search for the answer yourself. The more of these lies you answer from the Bible yourself, the more that makes you into the God-fearing and honest leader and righteous judge that God wants you to be – as His pure and holy-living ambassador to rebuke evil and defend the vulnerable and honorable. (See Matthew 7:1-10)
What are “myths”? They are simply repeats of old lifeless mythologies about lesser “gods” and “goddesses” that have never existed and never will, but they have 2 levels to them. The first level is that they are a demonic counterfeit to something God has made and aimed to get people to worship demons or something in the created world rather than worshipping the Creator (Romans 1:16-25). The second level is that they are a distraction for humans – an illusion of choice, as it were. Myths and legends are also used as a legend or fanciful tale about a living human that satan and his fellow demons wanted to make look great – even as a “god”. The whole topic of “gods” and worship of idols is because the demonically-driven leaders around us want to be worshipped and obeyed absolutely as though they are actual “gods” and “goddesses”. You see this going on way back to Nimrod (leader of the rebels against God in the building of the Tower of Babel), then the Egyptian pharaohs, then again with the Babylonian, Mede, Persian, Greek and Roman leaders, as well as the Arab leaders and the Vikings and European royalties, etc, etc. All royalty and high-level leaders who reject the Bible and refuse to submit to God, instead present themselves as “lesser gods”, and are then promoted and covered-for by their false prophets and prophetesses. Modern false prophets (and prophetesses) who cover for leaders who want to be worshipped and served as “gods” are: Joel Osteen, TD Jakes, Rick Warren, Joel Hunter, John MacArthur, John Piper, and Joyce Meyers, Beth Moore, Jennifer Rothschild, Paula White, etc. Part of what these false prophets play off of is like the Vatican Jesuit – Hitler. They pretend that this individual (an antichrist – opposes Christ) made it into a position of top-authority (on planet earth) and therefore they twist the Scripture that this individual has the “right” to rule “from God” – and then they misquote passages such as John 10:34 and mis-apply Romans 13 and 1st Peter chapters 2,3 and 5. But when they contradict God, God inspires people to stand against them (Matthew 11:4-19, 1 Corinthians 10:3-5, Ephesians 5:11-13, Eph. 6). Those who live upright can stand up to any evil with His authority, though these sin-led/demon-led people never acknowledge that. As satan rejects God’s authority – to their destruction and judgment, so do they. The rebellious and evil leaders who should fear God and do what’s right (and are not), show who they really are when they say the right words but then do evil. And when the righteous who know Jesus and the Bible claim those judgments against those evil leaders, the judgments and wrath of God catch up to those leaders and God will oppose them (Matthew 18:6) – according to His many promises on that subject. So, resist the evildoers and leaders, in speech/text and prayer.
If you read any of the so-called “lost books of the Bible”, 95+% of them are just myths about God and contradicting the Bible. My team and I have investigated a lot of those myths – they are a mostly useless to study, unless you are trying to catch a false teacher in his lies because he is quoting from them. And, in addition to that, everything coming out of the Jesuits-run Follywood (“Hollywood”) are myths and lies and cover-ups of crimes. And it’s the same as the myths and old false religions – they mock the Bible, try to pretend that God “sins too”, and that all “gods” are the same, and that sin doesn’t matter, so do whatever you want.
In reality and all honesty, there are only 2 belief systems: 1) God and holiness, and 2) all of the other so-called religions. Let’s look at that little more. In the beginning was God – He is always telling 100% of the truth. In complete contrast, the father of lies(and murderer from the beginning, and thief and destroyer, John 8 &10) – the devil, is always only telling some of the truth, and in way would try to make you question God and join satan’s team for your sin-wants and sin-fun. Remember, satan is constantly – and yes I mean constantly, repeating the lies he said to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that led to their fall:
“’Has God indeed said…’ ‘You will not surely die…’ ‘and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’” (Genesis 3:1-5)
Jesus replied to satan’s
lies in John 10:
“10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. 11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.” (John 10:10-11)
So, there’s your two belief systems – God, and all of satan’s counterfeits, lies and myths. All false religions pretend that your sins aren’t crimes against God and holiness, and yet he contradicts himself by adding some form of “good works” system (including money) that helps you “atone” for the guilt of your sins by trying to bribe God the Creator and Judge. All of these false religions are useless, because they cannot help you solve the problem of the judgment against your sins. Remember, the first time you and I did something that we knew was wrong, and did it willfully, we became a rebel and enemy against God, and we’ve done way more than just one willful sin/crime against God and holiness. The only way to get those crimes forgiven or covered is by Jesus’ blood, through a covenant (which I call the “covenant of the cross”).
About 2000 years ago, Jesus came as a humble baby, died on the cross to pay for sin, rose the 3rd day as the Jewish Messiah (and Savior of all who believe/trust in Him), and after being seen by over 500 witnesses, He ascended to the right Hand of the Father (Hebrews 1:3). Jesus has always existed and you see many times He appeared in pre-incarnate form to Abraham (Genesis 14, 18), Moses (Exodus 3), Joshua (Joshua 5:13-15), and Jesus in pre-incarnate form picked the location of what was to be the Jewish Temple - planned by David and built by Solomon (2 Samuel 24:19), etc. Whenever you see the English phrase “The Angel of the Lord” – that’s Jesus. God also tells us in Genesis 14 and Hebrews 7, that Jesus actually ruled over a city called “Salem” as Melchizedek, teaching holiness to people and helping whoever would listen, to get right with God. Point being – Jesus wasn’t “born” when He came – He is God and always has been, as John 1 makes so clear, and many places in the Book of John. So, Jesus came down, put on human flesh (John 1:14) “a tent” as God through Peter calls it, and then rose again – as God. Only Jesus’ human body died – God did not die as some modern myths pretend. Point being – Jesus is God, always has been, and is our only The only way to get saved is through Jesus, as He said so clearly Himself: “I AM The Way, The Truth, and The Life. No one comes to the Father except by and through Me.” (John 14:6)
People try to pretend that the things that God did in the Old Testament were “easily explained” away as over-exaggerations, or tricks of the eye and sleight of hand, or “legends” that made the situation bigger than life – because satan can’t let people actually believe the Bible, if he can help it. In modern times, satan has the “superheroes” as antichrists and to pretend that Jesus has super-sized legends – effectively trying to call Jesus a liar. But, Jesus is telling the truth as always, because He *Is* the Truth. Everything major event Jesus did fulfilled one of the 7 Jewish feasts He gave to the Jewish people. Jesus’ coming to earth in the form of man, was in fulfillment of the Jewish “Feast of Tabernacles”, also called “Sukkot” in Hebrew, and the fulfillment is shown in John 1:14, “14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
The constant tricks of the devil can be most easily seen as many forms of an attack style against the Bible called “Textual Criticism”, which is the “art” and “science” of criticizing the Bible, to turn people from the truth, and encouraging them in sin. God condemns the devil, and all of his human helpers for that.
“20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
“13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)
“6 I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:6-10)
Having been teaching the Bible and sharing the gospel on the streets for many years, we get all kinds of questions. And many of them have to do with myths we have never even heard of. And over these past 20 years, we’ve been able to investigate some of them. And do you know what we’ve found? They are all lies. We plead with people to stay away from myths, unless they have spent years in studying the Bible themselves and are only approaching them to show the lies of the devil and his human helpers – deception is so dangerous, you don’t approach it lightly. And, it’s amazing how many different ways satan attacks and falsely accuses God.
In past days, people would take their time and/or money to carve their idol out of stone and wood and maybe decorate it with gold and silver. Today’s people are too lazy to carve an idol, so they just create the image in our heads and imaginations. The spiritual energy behind the want to create idols and false “gods” of course, is satan – always trying to counter who God is and what God is doing. The devil, satan, would wish that he could turn every away from God and the Bible back to pagan traditions and idol-worship. And, of course, satan has always looked for human helpers to help promote these false “gods”, which are not gods at all, but lies. Centuries ago, satan’s human helpers would tell stories and/or write down the myths for idols and against God, but in today’s society, the trash vender (TV) is one of the main sources of these lies, secondary are books that do the same.
If you do a little searching, you will quickly notice that the pagan (secretly God-hating) leaders who rule us and create many systems and businesses around us, love satan’s myths and fables. Many names of modern companies are named after some Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Norse or other mythological “god” or “goddess”, for example Nike, Venus, Juno, Apollo, Athena/Diana, etc. Thanks to leaders who revere pagan Rome, many of the planets are named after mythological “gods” and “goddesses”, for example, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Pluto, etc. Thanks to those who revere Norse mythology all of the days of the week are borrowed from that paganism. Thanks to those who revere Egyptian mythological “gods” and “goddesses”, we have the all-seeing eye on the US dollar bill, atop a pyramid – thanks to the demon-worshipping Jesuits and masons. And thanks to those who revere the Chinese, Greek, and Roman mythological “gods” and “goddesses”, we have those false “deities” in their so-called “zodiacs” and in the names of many of the constellations in the sky – something that once did brought glory to God (and still does in many ways), now reveres the devil and his demons and myths. And thanks to those who revere the myths of the Sumerians, Babylonians, Atlantis, etc, we have the Jesuit lying religion/mythology of “evolution” and even the Jesuit myths of “flat earth” again. You will also find much mythology referenced in seemingly all fantasy productions today – from comic books, to games, to reading books, to films, movies, TV-shows and music.
So, what’s the point? It’s simple. We live on a planet where satan dominates, in some ways, as the “prince of the power of the air”. So, satan influences many people with his same deceptions and imaginations of grandeur and conquering God and living in peace enjoying the sins, as he did in old does, so he does today. The fact that they worship false “gods” and “goddesses” that never have existed, doesn’t hurt you. Don’t follow them, just follow the One True Holy and Pure God, who gave us the tool to use to double-check everything around us – His Word, the Bible. God’s Word does indeed answer all of satan’s lies, old and new. King Solomon saw many things and said it well:
“1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. 2 "Vanity of vanities," says the Preacher; "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity." 3 What profit has a man from all his labor In which he toils under the sun? 4 One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever. 5 The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, And hastens to the place where it arose. 6 The wind goes toward the south, And turns around to the north; The wind whirls about continually, And comes again on its circuit. 7 All the rivers run into the sea, Yet the sea is not full; To the place from which the rivers come, There they return again. 8 All things are full of labor; Man cannot express it. The eye is not satisfied with seeing, Nor the ear filled with hearing. 9 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. 10 Is there anything of which it may be said, "See, this is new"? It has already been in ancient times before us. 11 There is no remembrance of former things, Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come By those who will come after. 12 I, the Preacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem. 13 And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; this burdensome task God has given to the sons of man, by which they may be exercised. 14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and indeed, all is vanity and grasping for the wind...”(Ecclesiastes 1:1-14)
King Solomon wrote his observations and confusions down in the Book of Ecclesiastes, and God allowed it to be in our Bibles. King Solomon sadly rejected the fear of the Lord to depart from evil and, second to his dad (David) and his committing sexual immorality with Bathsheba and murderering her husband, King Solomon was the one who brought much demon-worship and many sins into Israel, leading eventually to almost all of the people of Israel being dragged away as slaves to Babylon. So, King Solomon brought much spiritual harm to Israel… but he did, at very least, after exploring everything he could, with the gift of wisdom that he requested from God (2Chronicles 1), he did eventually figure out the meaning of life – after he had done many sins and married many pagan women… he found the conclusion:
“1 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, "I have no pleasure in them… 7 Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. 8 "Vanity of vanities," says the Preacher, "All is vanity." 9 And moreover, because the Preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Preacher sought to find acceptable words; and what was written was upright--words of truth. 11 The words of the wise are like goads, and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. 12 And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh. 13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man's all. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil.”
(Ecclesiastes 12:1, 7-14)
King Solomon lost many things… but he eventually found true wisdom – the “fear of the Lord” which is the “beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 1:9, 9:10). Don’t be like him. Read the Bible for yourself. Build a relationship with the One True and Good Creator and Judge, and don’t partner with demons or explore their myths to learn “something new” as many pagan Greeks did in Paul’s day (and even still today). Start with truth. If you started wrong before now, start again. Start with Jesus. Start a covenant relationship with Him today – start with giving Him your life to live holy and pure and to let Him teach you. And then learn to look at everything through His eyes. God is the Only One who will always tell you the whole truth and nothing but the Truth. But, you can only find it by reading His Word (the Bible), not by exploring satan’s counterfeits.
One quick not e before we conclude. The Vatican/Jesuits are the myth-keepers and promoters. They are satan’s best agents, and they take many forms. Please don’t be like them, but do watch out for them. The freemasons are the footsoldiers of the Vatican/Jesuits. The freemasons are an occult/cult based on all of the world’s demonic mythologies. They control the big business in every major city in the world. Don’t join them or be like them, or you will find it painful, or become demon-possessed like them. Expose lies wherever you find them, again using God’s Word to catch the myriad (thousands) of the devil’s lies. This team has researched many things for about 20 years. If you need some trustworthy and Biblically-reliable resources on any topic, we can probably help you. Please ask anytime. Helping people find the One True God and reject sin and the devil’s lies is why we are here. ~ info@RestoreMBI.com
Romans 1:18-32 explain that God talks to every single living person. For more than 2000 years, Rome has been collecting and promoting these mythologies. Around the time of Christ and afterwards, it was the Greek and Roman mythologies. But, then about the mid300s AD, Rome switched to pretending to be the mother “church” and has tried to rule her “Holy Roman Empire” with the same myths in old and new packages. In the 1500s, satan found a new team to promote the myths and tyrannical rule of Rome – the Jesuits, a secret and brutal militia founded by Iñigi “Ignatius” Loyola in the 1540s. Shortly after that, Loyola (with Rome’s help) founded several Jesuit schools in the southern part of Europe, and Rome built the “Collegia Romana’ to fund and equip them with the mythologies and “enlightened” satanic math and science “teachings”. Since then, the Vatican Jesuits since the mid-1500s have been satan’s keepers and promoters of these stories of idols. The devil (satan) is the master-counterfeiter, and right now satan’s prize-team are the Jesuits (since 1540). The Vatican and her Jesuits are the keepers of the false religion and the myths.
