What Does The Future Hold For The Real You, Who Will Live Forever

Satan Is Pulling The Worldly Strings Behind The Curtain

Your fleshly body is not you. You are the "breath of life" which your Creator breathed into your body when you became a living, human soul. From Adam's body, Eve was created, and from theirs, we were created... "formed of the dust of the ground". But your life, spirit, or aspiration was breathed into your body by the very life and love of God. 

"And the LORD formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul." Gen.2:7.

Our spirits were given a human, physical body in which we would live this life on Earth and by which we could express our unique, individual personalities, thoughts, actions, decisions, and aspirations, as free will human beings. Free to choose, but fully accountable to our Creator God. God's breath gave physical life capable of spiritual aspiration.

When the body dies, physical respiration ceases and our life ... spirit ... aspiration leaves the fleshly, physical body and the physical world. This, is just as the Spirit of Christ left the the physical body of Mary's child, Jesus, hanging on the cross.  And while the dead physical body of Jesus was taken down and buried in a  tomb, the Spirit of Christ descended into the heart of the earth to give the fulfilled Gospel of salvation to the O.T. saints in Paradise. They were kept there, awaiting Jesus's prophesied death, the fulfilled payment for their sins, before they could enter the presence of holy God in Heaven. When Jesus Christ arose, they arose from wherever their bodies had been buried and those buried in Jerusalem arose and walked in the city until Jesus finished his business with the New Testament saints there. Then continued on into Heaven to deliver those O.T. saints, who had been  "captivated",  or securely guarded, in "Abraham's Bosom", or Paradise, in the heart of the earth, across a great gulf from the regions of the O.T. damned, lost in hell.

"And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried, and in hell, he lift up his eyes ... and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me .... for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence." Lk. 16:22-26.

"... so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matt.12:40.

"Wherefore he (Christ) saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive ... Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? Eph. 4:8-9

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the (O.T.) spirits in prison." 1 Pet.3:18-19.

The word "prison" here means a securely guarded place of keeping. That place was also called "Paradise" and "Abraham's Bosom". O.T. saints could not go directly into the presence of a holy God, at death, until their sins had been paid for by their Messiah, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, and His blood offered upon the heavenly altar of God, which also applied to the N.T. Christians.

"For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit." 1 Pet.4:6.

"And the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many." Matt.27:52-53.

All of that was the preservation of the O.T. saints' spirits and then a rejoining with, and resurrection of their new glorified bodies. Their spirits had been kept in Paradise (Abraham's Bosom) until the sin debt was paid and Messiah came for them. Those buried in Jerusalem evidently arose and visited while awaiting Christ Jesus to finish his business with the New Testament saints living in Jerusalem: But then, He continued His holy ascension into heaven with the Old Testament saints. Prior to the crucifixion, their sins had not yet been fully atoned for, in fulfillment of their faith in their future, coming Messiah. They looked forward to him, in faith, while they were still serving Him during their earthly lives in the O.T.

Now, our faith looks back to Messiah's first coming when He took on human form, delivered God's truth, was crucified, paid the sin debt, and arose from the dead. Christ's second coming will be in two phases. First He will return "in the air", resurrect us and catch us away into the clouds, delivering us from the Tribulation, which is  "Jacob's trouble"  according to Jer.30:7, and raptures us into Heaven for the wedding ceremony with His bride, at the beginning of the Tribulation Period on earth.

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air ...." 1 Thess. 4:16-17.

"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." 1 John 3:2.

When the Christians are taken out, God's Holy Spirit, who lives in them, is taken out with them.

"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he (Holy Spirit) who now letteth will let until he is taken out of the way." 2 Thess.2:7.   The "mystery of iniquity" is now working but limited by the Holy Spirit until the rapture when he (H.S.) will leave with those in whom He dwells.

It will be at this first phase of His second coming when Christ raptures His bride into heaven, for their wedding, that the Holy Spirit will be  "taken out"  with the true Christians, in whom He lives. While on earth, Christians and the Holy Spirit gone, there is no Christian witness on earth until in the midst of the 7 years when God sends His two witnesses in Rev.11:3. 

The Tribulation Period Begins

After 7 years of Tribulation under the Anti-Christ's ruthless reign, Christ will return in the second phase of His second coming to bind Satan and set up His holy Millennial Kingdom for 1000 years. In this kingdom, the Christians, Bride of Christ, who return with Him will also rule with him as "Kings and Priests". 

"...Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints." Jude 1:14.

"And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." Rev. 5:10.

"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem (Jews), the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son." Zech.12:10.

Finally, turning to their Messiah, Christ, the 144,000 Jews who survive the Tribulation, in a new world, without sickness, war or death, will repopulate the entire Earth, exponentially, for those 1000 years of peace and health (Isa.2:4). Refilling the earth with multiplied millions of people.

At The End Of The Millennial Kingdom

"Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ and shall reign with him a thousand years. And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them." Rev.20:6-9
This final rebellion of men is short lived.  And so we see that, in this final failure of man, in the very presence of Christ, on His throne. This will be the 7th dispensational failure of man. From his failure in the first, the dispensation of innocence, in Eden, to the last, in the dispensation of Christ's rule as King of kings. With all humanity in the visible presence of Deity, and knowing He is God, they rebel. And wasn't that also the failure of Lucifer, in heaven, recorded in  Isa.14:12-15.

Then comes the second resurrection (of the lost), for judgment at the Great White Throne. Those who have remained in the Hell, where Abraham spoke to the man across a "great gulf", who was "torment in this flame". At that judgment, every soul in the universe will acknowledge Jehovah and Christ as Lord.  "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Phil.2:10-11.

Fantastic? Yes, but "Thus saith the Lord". Unbelievable? Without Christ ... yes. But it is He who makes the difference in your eternity.

Human Inclination To Hear Sweet Lies ... Reject Bitter Truth

This Is A Normal, Human, Fleshly Tendency

Simple human interest, sweet words, and a good report outdraw readership, leadership, and followship, as opposed to eternal issues, world-wide problems, and impending catastrophe. 95% of the time people do not want to hear the negative, though it is true, prefer the positive, shallow good words, though they be false.

Here is a case in point. A King who only wanted to hear encouraging words, good and positive words, words which agreed with what he already wanted to do. Such a leader is doomed to failure, loss and pain if he surrounds himself with yes men and false prophets, as many a President, Congressman, General, Professional Athlete, Movie Star, and Employer has done.
The account is recorded in 1 Kings 22:6-22.

Then the king of Israel (Jehoshaphat) gathered the (false) prophets together, about four hundred men, and said unto them, Shall I go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall I forbear? And they said, Go up; for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the king.
And Jehoshaphat (King of Judah) said, Is there not here a prophet of the Lord besides, that we might enquire of him?
And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the Lord: but I hate him; for he doth not prophesy good concerning me, but evil. And Jehoshaphat said, Let not the king say so.
Then the king of Israel called an officer, and said, Hasten hither Micaiah the son of Imlah.
10 And the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat the king of Judah sat each on his throne, having put on their robes ... and all the prophets prophesied before them (falsely).
11 And Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah made him horns of iron: and he said, Thus saith the Lord, With these shalt thou push the Syrians, until thou have consumed them.
12 And all the prophets prophesied so, saying, Go up to Ramothgilead, and prosper: for the Lord shall deliver it into the king's hand.
13 And the messenger that was gone to call Micaiah spake unto him, saying, Behold now, the words of the prophets declare good unto the king with one mouth: let thy word, I pray thee, be like the word of one of them, and speak that which is good.
14 And Micaiah said, As the Lord liveth, what the Lord saith unto me, that will I speak.
15 So he came to the king. And the king said unto him, Micaiah, shall we go against Ramothgilead to battle, or shall we forbear? And he answered him, Go, and prosper: for the Lord shall deliver it into the hand of the king.
16 And the king said unto him, How many times shall I adjure thee that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the Lord?
17 And he said, (Here's the truth) I saw all Israel scattered upon the hills, as sheep that have not a shepherd: and the Lord said, These have no master: let them return every man to his house in peace.
18 And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, Did I not tell thee that he would prophesy no good concerning me, but evil?
19 And he (Micaiah) said, Hear thou therefore the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.
20 And the Lord said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.
21 And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him.
22 And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so." 1 Kings 22:6-22.

The Bottom Line Of Human Righteousness

The primary difference in people.

The best you can say about any human being is that they have repented of their sins and rested their soul, by faith, in the atoning death of Jesus Christ for their unrighteousness. RB

"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one ...." Rom.3:10

"If we confess our sins, he (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Rom.10:3

"I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness ...." Isa.61:10

God Is Revealing Sealed Prophecy In These Days Of "Increased Knowledge"

This "Sign Post" of Jewish feast days and prophecy is the work of our son, Robert Paul (Bob). As you will see, he is a student of God's word and, I believe, has special insight into prophecy through the prism of Jewish feast days. RB

Daniel could not begin to imagine the extent of the prophecy that God (Yehovah) gave him in Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, (neither Daniel nor anyone else understood this prophecy) even to the time of the end (when we would then begin to understand): many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” This prophecy was about 2500 years ago and just 1,500 hundred years ago there were some who thought the sun, planets and stars revolved around the earth. Remember when the earth was “flat”! Now, there are millions running to and fro, flying through the air, speeding down highways and cruising across the ocean while communicating with anyone anywhere on earth and Googling whatever information or knowledge is needed. Look what we have learned about DNA. That knowledge has changed medicine, forensics, denied evolution and lengthened life spans. Too bad all this knowledge cannot grant us wisdom from above… only God can do that. (James 1:5).
Yes, sometimes we think we are pretty smart. But plant a tomato seed and try to pinpoint exactly when your first tomato will be ripe and ready to eat… or the barley ready to harvest. Only God knows because He knows when the sun is going to shine, when it’s going to rain and what the temperature will be 24/7. Knowledge has increased and although we can give a close estimate for a harvest, we will never be able to pre-determine God’s timetable revealing the first day of each new Hebrew year or new months or feast days, prior to the sighting of the new moons. The moon cycle is not even an exact number of days. It is 29.5305882 days. Isn’t God awesome? Google it. In the following verses, read some of the history of God’s commandment concerning the Hebrew calendar year (By the way, I am referencing God’s Biblical calendar, not the “civil” Jewish calendar which was created by the Jews years after the Bible was written. They did it for their own convenience to better align their calendar with the pagan January through December calendar.):

Ex12:1-2 ¶ And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month (*new moon) shall be unto you the beginning of months (*new moons): it shall be the first month (*new moon) of the year to you.

Ex13:3-4 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten. This day came ye out in the month (*new moon) Abib. (or Aviv which was changed to the name “Nisan” [their flight] after the Babylonian captivity. Esther 3:7 [the 12th month, Adar, is also mentioned here])

*The Hebrew for “new moon” is chodesh or hodesh and translated “month” in these two references and in 252 other places in the Bible. Hodesh is translated “new moon” in 20 Bible references such as Ps 81:3 “Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day”. The first sighting in Israel of the first sliver of each new moon is what designates the beginning of each of the 12 Hebrew calendar months, not to mention the sun, stars and moon are for signs and seasons. Gen 1:14

This complicated system of the reckoning of times and seasons could be why no one knows the day nor the hour of Jesus’ return. We can know when it’s getting close based on what Jesus said in Luke 21:7-28. Verse 28 “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Yes, God has his own calendar, His own timetable and designated feast days given to the nation of Israel many years ago… and He said the feast days were to be observed “forever” and the only way to observe them, on the day designated, is to know when the first day of the month for that feast is. Ex 12:17 “And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever” (the feast of unleavened bread was one of three yearly feasts that God ordained after the children of Israel were delivered out of Egypt. Ex 23:14-17) All of the feast days are “shadow pictures” of things to come in the future. (Colossians 2:16 “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday [Heorte] is the Greek word here, translated “feast” in 26 other Bible references], or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come…”) The shadow pictures of the Spring feasts, starting in the month of Abib (March/April of the pagan calendar), have already been fulfilled by Jesus, our Passover lamb, in His death, burial and resurrection and in the gift of the Holy Spirit, during the feast of Pentecost, to indwell believers after Jesus’ ascension to Heaven. That was a time when Jesus (Yeshua) came as a servant and redeemer. The Fall feast and Holy Days, observed in the 7th Biblical Hebrew month, Tishri (Sept/Oct of the pagan calendar), are yet to be fulfilled when Yeshua will return as reigning King and Judge. One of those Holy Days is called “The Day of Trumpets” when no one knows of the day or hour that the trumpet will sound. This yearly holy day is coming up on Tishri 1 of the Biblical Hebrew calendar, somewhere around September 22, 23, 24 etc., because… no man knows the day or the hour… until the new moon is sighted in Israel. 'I’m just sayin'… it’s a yearly Holy Day and a “High Sabbath”.

The feast days and holy days designated by God were to be observed by the Israelites forever. As a Christian, I have been “grafted in” (Romans 11:13-21), therefore I might be considered a “spiritual Jew”. Learning about the feasts of the Lord and observing them has brought even more life to the scriptures for me in these times of increased knowledge. There is a whole lot more to all this than I’ve shared so, let us ask God to give us “the spirit of wisdom and a revelation in the knowledge of Him” (Eph 1:17) for these last days. The more we know, the more we will understand about what happens when it happens and we will trust God no matter what happens. Let us be found faithful.  Robert Paul Blair (Bob)

If Jesus Foreknew Judas Would Betray Him, Why Did He Chose Him As An Apostle?

If he had never  been an Apostle he could not have fulfilled the prophecy which was based on the future reality. Jesus made no mistakes. He knew what He would do and what Judas would do.

God does not need "faith" or "hope". He is the originator and object of all true faith and hope. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not (yet) seen." Heb.11:1
God already owns everything in the universe, both "substance and spiritual", and hopes for nothing. He doesn't "hope", He "knows" in advance. He is our hope.    "....God our Savior, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope.1 Tim.1:1.   Instead, He has certainty of knowledge, all knowledge, omniscience. He knows that He knows that He knows everything. He does not need faith or hope, he has omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, the universe and every grain of sand, breath of air and drop of water in it. Irreversible, eternal perfection requires no hope or faith. It is absolute, infinite.

The Christian believer's faith is a mustard seed off of our Creator's infinite mustard tree of omniscient knowledge and omnipotent power. True faith and hope are unknown to the unbeliever, but the faith and hope of eternal life abides in every believer. 
"... Jesus Christ: whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory." 1 Peter 1:8. 
This is a mystery known only by believers, in that, "faith" converts "hope", into spiritual certainty, the "substance" of reality, before the fact, as if it were already seen and possessed... and, it is, in fact. 

Prophecy, which is simply the foreknowledge of God, of future events, given to His people through His prophets, is also certain evidence of things to come, in God's own time. True prophecy, recorded in the Bible, is certain "evidence" of future events revealed before they happen. God's prophecies, are based on God's foreknowledge of the certain fact of their eventual fulfillment, not the other way around. The fact is not based on the prophecy of it; Prophecy is based on the future fact of it. Prophecy simply reveals what is going to happen before it happens, but would happen anyway even if it had not been prophesied. God pre-knew everything He would do and what each of us would will to do.

If this be true, why did Jesus Christ choose Judas as one of His 12 Apostles, if He knew what Judas would do? Jesus knew exactly what Judas would do. Christ was with God throughout eternity and was one with God. God and Christ have known from forever that humans would be created, would sin and become fallen sinners. He knew that He would send Christ, in to the body of Jesus, to die for the sins of  all who would believe, and that Judas would betray Him. He knew all of this from eternity past and in the "Word of God", He gave prophecies of that betrayal fact even in the Old Testament, in Psm.4:9, Psm.109:8, and Zec.11:12-13. It was destined because God knew it, and let it happen as a negative force, of men's will, to contrast good from evil, God from the Devil, light from darkness, love from hate, life from death and to emphasize the divine positive of the eternal Gospel. Jesus also knew that, till the end of time, there would be traitors in and out of His churches whom Christians would have to deal with. The negative makes the positive even sweeter. Therefore, Rev.13:8 declares that Jesus was, "The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."

If all of creation, including the human race, was only good, pure, harmless and painless, then holiness would simply be universally normal and not exceptional, but common, the only reality. But the negative gives emphatic contrast and increased emphasis to God's salvation positive.

Yes, Jesus knew Judas, that he would betray Him to be crucified.
"Jesus said unto them, the Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men." Matt.17:22.
"And as they did eat, he said ... one of you shall betray me."
Matt. 26:21.
"He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me." Matt. 26:23.
"Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doeth betray me." Matt. 26:46.

Judas was simply who and what he was... and chose to be.  Jesus knew it and was not surprised by it, and didn't expect him to be saved, but chose him because of who he was, not by mistake. It is also true that if Judas had sincerely repented of his betrayal action, and confessed Christ, he could have been saved, but Jesus would also have pre-known that too. But He knew Judas would not repent, only "regret" after the fact, and commit suicide. By Judas' presence, the force of the evil negative increased the emphasis on the holy positive of God's planned redemption.
"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Rom.8:28

The story would not be complete without it happening exactly as it did. He also knows exactly what you and I will, and will not do, but we are still responsible for making those decision and choices. RB

The Mark Of The Beast Implanted In the Skin Of His Worshipers

In their Right Hand Or Forehead ... Maybe a Government
issue, high tech tattoo or injection of a tiny micro-chip.

First, let me point out the fact that God gave His people, who were delivered by Moses,  Leviticus, which means "The Book Of The Levites" and contains the Levitical Law. In that holy book, He included this in Lev.19:28,  "Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh... nor print any marks upon you: I am the LORD (YHWH)." 
Intentional, permanent marking or scarring of the skin is forbidden.
Common Tattoos, though foolish, are not an unforgivable sin. 
1 John 1:9. But the "mark" of the Beast will be ... What is it?

The Hebrew word translated "marks" means cutting, into the skin.
The authority forbidding this is the LORD (YHWH), the name of GOD which the Jews dared not speak, and when written, wrote G_D, or YHWH, the unpronounceable, without vowels, name of GOD. 

The New Testament makes reference to the sanctity of our bodies which belong to our LORD, YaHWeH, and not to our own selves.

"...your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own....For ye are bought with a price...." 1Cor.6:19-20

The rise, power, and demands of the Beast:
The "Beast" (Anti-Christ), during his 7-year reign, will have miracles performed by the false prophet, and thereby, deceive the masses and cause them to worship him, receive his number, name or mark on their right hands or foreheads. Any person who rejects the mark will be disqualified from buying or selling anything (including seed, water or land). Thus, would soon starve to death. Evidently, this "mark" would be required in all financial transactions and would include each person's identification.

"And he doeth great wonders so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men .... And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles ... And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." Rev. 13:13-17.

Warning to the non-Christians alive during the time of the Anti-Christ ...
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone ...." Rev.14:9-10.

The victory of Tribulation, Christian converts over the "Beast" and the song they sing ... written by Moses in Deut.31:22 and referenced here ...

"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest." Rev.15:2-4.

The first "vial" (phiale) a basin, of God's wrath, is poured out as plagues upon the Beast's followers.

"And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth. And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image." Rev.16:1-2.

The termination of the Beast's reign and his being cast, with the false prophet, into the Lake of Fire 

"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." Rev.19:20.

Are The Illusions Of Grandeur And Visions Induced By Psychedelic Drugs A Religious Experience?

Maybe "religious" but not Christian ...

Throughout human history, Lucifer (Satan) has lied to humans about God, his word and his people. The lie and counterfeit religion were born in the heart of Lucifer, as an Archangel, while he was still in heaven as the chief light reflector of God's glory. There, he lied to a third of the angels, those under his authority, and presented his own counterfeit of "spiritual experience" and himself as the true God of the universe. His rebellion against God, an impossible illusion, resulted in his being cast out of God's presence, loss of his source of glorious light to reflect, and therefore his beauty. He became darkness and was ejected with his darkness into a small planet named Earth which became dark and void.

The next thing we read about Lucifer (light reflector), is his encounter with Eve in Eden, when he lied to her about God, His word, and good effects upon her if she would do what God had said not to do. By her disobeying God, Satan promised Eve the spiritual experience of becoming a god herself.

Satan is still lying to humans, who were created in the image and likeness, but not the deity, of God. Satan has, himself, created temporal parallelisms in similitude of all of God's holy and eternal things, These Satanic counterfeits extend from false gods, false Christs, false prophets, false churches, false bibles, false worshipers, false doctrines, a false heaven, false hope, and false religious experience.
False religious experience is found in many varieties, including in professing Christian churches and in many false professing "men and women of the cloth". 

One such false religious experience is claimed by certain religiously inclined, but unconverted, wolves in sheep's clothing who profess that psychedelic drugs enhance religious experience. As the social legitimacy and acceptance of the use of such drugs spreads around the world the false claims of the adherents is also spreading. Enough so that studies are now being made by previously reputable institutions. 

Psychedelic drugs are simply another counterfeit, spiritual experience. The use of these drugs is mentioned twice in the Revelation, 9:21 and 18:23. The word sorceries in these two verses, in its Greek form, is pharmakeia as in pharmacy, and means psychedelic drugs. The first reference, in 9:21, lists it with murder, fornication and theft, and indicates it needs to be repented of. The second reference in 18:23, says that by the use of these drugs (pharmakeia), all nations will be deceived and the holy light and word of Christ (Bridegroom) and His bride (church), would no longer be heard or seen by those who use them or approve of it. 

"Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts." Rev. 9:21  (sorceries from Greek pharmakeia).

"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." Rev. 18:23   (Sorceries from Greek pharmakeia).

Can Psychedelics Enhance the Mystical, Religious Experience?

“And Nadav and Avihu, the sons of Aharon, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before Hashem, which he commanded them not.” Leviticus 10:1 (The Israel Bible™)

In their search for possible benefits of psilocybin ‘Magic Mushrooms’, researchers at Johns Hopkins University put out a call for clergy from different faiths to determine if this natural psychedelic can help man connect with God. Rabbis, even those who have benefited in the past from this experience, are reluctant, highlighting that the true ‘God experience’ cannot be confined to a laboratory.
After nearly 50 years of a ban on studying psychedelic drugs and marijuana, scientists are beginning to discover that psychoactive substances bear many physiological and psychological benefits for mankind. Two researchers at Johns Hopkins Bayview, Roland Griffiths and Matthew Johnson, have been studying the powerful effects of psilocybin for over a decade. They discovered the natural substance is effective in reducing depression and end-of-life anxiety associated with terminal cancers. Psilocybin was also found to be effective in helping end addiction.
Many of the study’s participants reported feelings of “unity … an interconnectedness of all things … sacredness of life,” and over 60 percent reported it as the most meaningful experience of their lives. Significantly, those with the most success quitting smoking or resolving symptoms of depression all reported high levels of this mystical aspect. The researchers expanded their study and are now investigating whether psilocybin has another potential use: to deepen the spiritual experience. The experiment involves clergymen ingesting psilocybin in a relaxed and controlled setting and reporting on their experience.
