The Endtimes Church
Millions of Christians around the world have them in their homes, in their churches, around their necks and in their Bibles. But the Cross is a false symbol and should not be used. Here is why.
Long before the birth of Jesus, the cross was a known pagan symbol. It's roots go all the way back to............yip, you guessed it....BABYLON! The "Sign" of the Cross in the days of the kingdom of Babylon was a reference to the holy time of the most high god Maarrduk, the god who had usurped the power of Most High God El , circa 2200 BC at the time of the tower of Babylon/Babel. The Sign of the Cross was an astrological and astronomical sign of the presence in the sky of the "crossing" planet of Maarrduk. It was a sign of his presence to the people.
Hence, the main reason many crosses are seen around the world that date to periods long before the birth and crucifiction of Christ. (6 BC to 29 AD) It was not until circa 312 AD that the symbol of the cross really took-off as having Christian meaning. This was mostly due to the action of one man....the emperor of Rome.... Constantine, and one woman.... his mother. After the acceptance of Constantine of the validity of the Christian religion (because of dreams and false visions), churches began to rise up all over the Roman empire, esp. in the Holy Land, where the Emperor's mother was busy doing her own research and the building of churches.
In these churches... crosses were placed. This is because, so goes the story, that Constantine had a dream and visions that concerned a cross. He believed this symbol aided him in becoming the Emperor of Rome. He was told in a dream that the "cross" would help him win battles. He won. It stuck. The assumption had been made that Jesus had died on a cross, when in fact there is no such proof of any kind!
You might say, "Well what about all those crosses in the Bible?" Well, every single use of the word "cross" in the bible is in the new testament and is in the Greek language. This word in Greek is "starous" and not cross. And the correct translation to English is not cross but stake! This translation error stems mostly from the Latin translation, which was the first translation of the Greek. The translators, esp. Jerome in Bethlehem, circa 380 AD, used the Latin word "crucis", which derives from the word crucifixion. Hence, the jump from using the Latin crucis to English cross is easy to comprehend.
It would have taken much more work to hang people sentenced to death on a cross then just hang them up on a straight stake. The most common way to crucify someone was on a stake, not a cross. The only way the stake of Jesus would have looked like a cross would have been if the sign that Pilot had placed on the stake, which read "King of the Jews" in three languages, was big enough to make it look like one. There is no mention of any of the Apostles or later important persons in the early church wearing or using crosses, until 100 yrs later. Then, it took almost two hundred more years for this false symbolism to come into common usage.
So alas, when the king, or emperor, says to use something, the people do. But the truth is that if you accept this false symbol, you are using a symbol of the most dark powers of the spiritual world, the god of Babylon. You are deceived and in so doing you are practicing Babylon which places you in Babylon and in the sins of her. You become a "partaker of her sins." This means you will receive of the "plagues of her" (Rev. 18:4) if you do not come completely out of her. (See Babylon page)
These are the days to be called out of Babylon. Throw all your crosses and pictures of them away! Get them out of your house. Get them out of your churches! Be not partakers of her sins, least you remain for the final trumpet, the wrath of God. Because if you do not come out of her (Babylon), or die, before the sounding of the 7th trumpet, you will be cast into the winepress of the wrath of God on earth, the great tribulation. (Rev. 14:19) The First Trumpet is about to sound! Take heed, and God bless.
