An Expose On The Unholy Sciences!



During one of many conversations I've been involved in on my
BBS, the following interesting question was raised:

"If a person is believed to be 'brain dead' is it ok to
donate that person's organs to save another person? I don't
have an opinion on this yet, but I would be very interested
in making one."

----- End Of Quote -----

What I like about these kinds of inquiries is that they
force all of us to confront issues which we normally may
ignore since we personally are not being affected by them.
It reminds me of the saying 'Out of sight, out of mind.'
While we all read or hear of many life tragedies via the
television set or the radio or the newspaper, after a while
we seem to become callous to them. We become hardened of
heart and spirit. We lose our sensitivity to the suffering
and needs of others. As long as our own life is in order and
we are experiencing minimal difficulty, everything else is
of less importance. This is due in large part to the spirit
of selfishness which has overtaken the world. In fact,
almost two thousand years ago, in His sermon on the Endtime,
Jesus prophesied this very thing when He said:

"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall
wax cold." (Matthew 24:12)

This is a rather revealing verse which most folks usually
forget all about. In contemplating the signs of the Endtime,
most of us think of things such as earthquakes, famine, war,
etc., but we neglect one of the worst ones because of our
own sinful condition. Notice that Jesus specifically says
that it is because of iniquity, or sin, that love is dying
in our current world. As we know from the writings of John,
sin is the transgression, or breaking, of God's laws:

"Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for
sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4)

And which laws are we breaking which is causing iniquity to
abound? Again, Jesus answers this for us quite clearly when
He says:

"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart,
and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all
thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second
is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as
thyself. There is none other commandment greater than
these." (Mark 12:30-31)

Sadly, we are all breaking God's greatest commandments in
this present day. We don't love God like we love ourselves;
and we certainly don't love our neighbors like we love
ourselves. If there is one thing which none of can deny, it
is that we love ourselves more than anything else. When it
comes to survival, comfort, happiness, etc., we are number
one on the list. Paul made this quite clear when he said:

"For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and
cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:" (Ephesians 5:29)

Paul also echoed the importance of Divine Love, of Spiritual
Love, in his epistle written to the Corinthians:

"And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the
greatest of these is charity." (1 Corinthians 13:13)

In discussing the signs of the Endtime, Paul also reflected
back on Jesus' own teachings when he said:

"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous,
boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
unthankful, unholy," (2 Timothy 3:2)

If you would like to read more on this topic, please refer
to my companion article, 'Selfishness: A Sign Of The
Endtime?' The above Scriptures particularly come in handy
with those persons who refuse to believe all of the standard
verses you may share with them regarding their sinful
nature. This may include such verses as Romans 3:23, Romans
6:23, etc. If they do resist your witness, try using some of
the above Scriptures and then say, 'Look, no matter what you
say, you are guilty as charged according to God's laws.' No
one can deny their own selfish nature, unless they are
extremely proud and under self-delusion. The point is,
because of our selfish sinful nature, in large part, we have
become past feeling as far as the sufferings and problems of
others are concerned. I discussed this same thought of being
past feeling in the article 'Homosexuality And Lesbianism:
To The Point!'. One pertinent verse I used there is the
following:

"Who being PAST FEELING have given themselves over unto
lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."
(Ephesians 4:19)

In this day and age, while most people are past feeling
concerning the sufferings of the world at large, when it
comes to their own wellbeing, many will pay any price and go
to any length to save or preserve their own lives, or the
lives of those dearest to them. It is precisely under these
circumstances that organ transplants, blood transfusions and
other medical procedures have become widely accepted amongst
our modernized culture. One thing we cannot deny is the fact
that, despite the gruesome aspects of these practices,
countless lives have been saved because of those who have
been willing to share their body parts both before and after
their demise, as well as their blood. Yet, as Christians,
there is still one important question which we all must
answer for ourselves: Are these things right in the sight of
the Lord? Are they ethically sound? After all, our primary
concern should be that we are fulfilling God's Will in our
lives. What makes this question difficult to answer for some
is that at first glance, there does not appear to be a clear
Biblical precedent. This kind of technology simply did not
exist in ancient times. In fact, it didn't even exist fifty
years ago.

Thus, when I first approached the Lord regarding this
matter, I was uncertain as to what I would be shown. In
applying this question to my own life, I must admit that I
immediately felt uncomfortable with it. I couldn't picture
myself consenting to having my body parts transplanted,
either now, or after my death, into someone else. I did
donate blood once many years ago when I was quite young, but
knowing what I do now, I don't know if I could ever do it
again. In my view, the idea of transplanting human body
parts from one person to another seems to defile the
sanctity of the vessel which the Lord has given us to carry
our Spiritual Being. On the other hand, it is also true that
when we die and our Spirit departs this vessel of water and
clay, it will become just an empty shell which will
eventually decay in the ground. In discussing the
Resurrection of the dead, the Apostle Paul said the
following:

"Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot
inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit
incorruption." (1 Corinthians 15:50)

Considering the above verse, some have suggested that it
really doesn't matter what happens to our physical bodies
after we are deceased. They say:

"If my body parts or blood are going to give another person
a chance at life, then why not donate them? I no longer have
need of them anymore. After all, as a Christian, I'll be
getting a new body anyway."

While this may be true, and while these may indeed be noble
thoughts, there is still a lot more which needs to be taken
into consideration. There is more to this than what appears
on the surface, as I soon discovered.

This also brings up another question: What about cremation?
Is this also an ethical procedure? I recall how one preacher
once told me many years ago that cremation was the Devil's
way of trying to disperse our molecules so that the Lord
wouldn't be able to recombine them at the time of The
Resurrection. This is a rather interesting thought. If you
have read some of my other articles, you may know that I
have a deep interest in the mechanics of the Spirit World.
In articles such as 'The Manipulation Of Time And Space,' I
have suggested that molecular energy, or atoms, might be the
scientific terminology used to define what we Christians
refer to as Spirit. It is this Invisible Force or Energy
which gives Life to our physical body and keeps it alive,
just as electricity gives 'life' to inanimate objects by
flowing through them. If you stop this flow, or if you
separate it from the human body or the object, it becomes
lifeless and still. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us
that we are to fear Him which can destroy both soul and body
in hell. In other words, He wasn't referring just to the
destruction of the physical body, but of the actual Energy
or Spirit which gives it life as well:

"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to
kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy
both soul and body in hell. " (Matthew 10:28)

In this particular case, the word 'hell' is rendered from
the Greek 'gehenna' which is a reference to the lake burning
with fire and brimstone discussed by John in the book of
Revelation:

"And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is
the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the
book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
(Revelation 20:14-15)

If God is going to destroy both the soul and the body at the
Second Death, a total snuffing out of existence, how else
could He attain this except through a complete diffusion or
breakdown of the molecular structure and the energy which
sustains and gives life to that structure?

While wondering if there might be other Scriptures which
support the practices of organ transplants and blood
transfusions, I was reminded of several other verses from
the epistle of James. If you really stretch the meaning of
these verses and apply them to our modern day, you might
convince yourself that they support these practices:

"If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily
food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye
warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those
things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew
me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my
faith by my works." (James 2:15-18)

If you were dying, and there was another Christian brother
or sister who needed a body part, or who could give you a
body part to keep you alive, could these verses possibly
apply to such a situation? Could they also apply to blood
transfusions? After all, this is something which is needful
for the body, right? If God has decided it is your time to
go, would you be interferring with His Will by giving or
accepting an organ transplant? From what I understand, and
I may be wrong, most organ transplants only prolong life a
few years, at least heart transplants. As can be seen, I
have presented a number of questions, but very few answers
thus far. I have found a few verses which we could make fit
the situation and justify these procedures if we really want
to convince ourselves that they are ethical practices.

However, this is not the way we Christians are supposed to
operate. We are not suppose to push our program or our
understanding across on God; but rather, we are to hunger
and thirst after His Truth and His Answers. If we do this,
He is more than happy to reveal them to us through His Word.
I can testify that whenever I have hungered for The Truth,
He has never failed to open my eyes and reveal things to me
directly through His Word. Thus, it was while thinking on
what happens after an organ transplant operation, that I
suddenly began to get a more definitive answer from the
Lord. And believe me, it has been truly amazing and
mind-boggling for me to see how deep this topic really is!

To begin with, unless I have been misinformed, in most if
not all cases, after such a transplant has been completed,
the patient is required to remain on anti-rejection drugs
for the rest of their life. What do anti-rejection drugs
do? They suppress the body's natural defense system! And
that, my friends, is the key which began to unravel this
whole mystery for me.

Really think about this for a minute: If organ transplants
were God's Will, couldn't He neutralize the body's natural
defense system so that it would readily accept the new organ
without the need for anti-rejection drugs? The fact that
your body doesn't even want the organ but is forced to
accept it through the suppression of its own immune system
tells us a lot. God could have made our bodies to easily
accept organs from others naturally, but He didn't, did He?
He could have made it as easy as changing a flat tire on a
car, but He didn't. He could have given us interchangeable
parts. It seems to me then that we are forcing the situation
against His natural Plan and Will for our lives through
artificial means, that is, with drugs. It would be like
trying to put a truck tire on a small sedan. It just won't
work for very long, if at all. Even when these doctors find
what they call perfect matches, there is still risk involved
and suppression drugs involved.

That isn't the only complication regarding this whole issue.
Consider this: What happens at The Rapture to persons still
living when their donor's body is taken up? Do they lose
that donated body part? Does the Lord just instantly give
them a new one? Of course, this is based on the belief that
The Resurrection will involve our actual deceased physical
body, an idea which is not accepted by everyone. In other
words, the idea is that there will be a rejoining of our
physical body with our Spirit. I discuss this concept more
in-depth in the article 'What Really Happens To Us When We
Die?' if you are interested in reading it.

Another problem arising with organ transplants has to do
with the medical term 'brain dead.' Some Christians have
suggested that this term was intentionally thought up by the
medical profession in order to make organ transplants legal
and more acceptable. According to the professionals, brain
death occurs when there are no longer brainwaves being
registered on the encephalograph. However, while seeking the
Lord on this matter, He revealed to me an interwoven chain
of extremely interesting verses which I am now going to
share with you. Based on this Biblical evidence, it is now
clear to me that man's definitions of life and death, as
well as their source in the human body, are in direct
conflict with God's definitions of the same. Consider the
following facts and Scriptures and see if you don't agree.

As discussed in other articles, following The Flood, the
Lord gave permission to Noah and his family to eat meat.
When He did this, He made one very clear restriction; and He
gave a very clear reason as to why that restriction was put
in place:

"But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood
thereof, shall ye not eat. And surely your blood of your
lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I
require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every
man's brother will I require the life of man."
(Genesis 9:4-5)

You see, the Lord is clearly saying that what constitutes
life, what is the source of life, is the blood flowing
through the body. The Lord says absolutely nothing about the
brain. This fact is repeated several more times when Moses
is receiving The Law from the Lord concerning the eating of
blood:

"And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of
the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner
of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that
eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given
it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your
souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the
soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul
of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that
sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be
of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn
among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that
may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and
cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the
blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto
the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner
of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof:
whosoever eateth it shall be cut off." (Leviticus 17:10-14)

"Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is
the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh."
(Deuteronomy 12:23)

This is a really deep concept folks. I hope that you are
fully understanding exactly what is being said in these
verses. Those in the medical profession are either extremely
ignorant, or else they are lying through their teeth! They
are purposely deceiving people, because they don't want you
to know The Truth. Do you want to know what The Truth is?
Are you sure you can handle it? In Revelation chapter
eighteen we read of the destruction of Babylon the Great
along with all of her merchandise. Merchandise refers to
products you buy and sell or trade, right? Well, in listing
part of the merchandise destroyed along with Babylon the
Great, we read the following in verse thirteen:

"And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense,
and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts,
and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls
of men." (Revelation 18:13)

Notice the very last item mentioned: 'souls of men'! Now,
you can try to say that it is referring to human slavery,
but it isn't. To confirm this, just look right before the
words 'souls of men' in the very same verse. There is the
word 'slaves'; so John must mean something else by 'souls of
men'. To believe otherwise is to say that he is saying
'slaves and slaves' which doesn't make a bit of sense. Why
would he repeat himself? As I have shown in other articles
concerning body and soul, sometimes the word 'soul' is used
to refer to our actual Spirit, our LifeForce from God, while
in other verses it refers to our fleshly body which is
merely the container or receptacle for our Spirit. Well, in
the context of this current discussion on organ transplants
and blood transfusions, the Lord showed me that 'souls of
men' means HUMAN BODIES here in Revelation chapter eighteen!
In other words, DEAD human bodies!

This is exactly what those worldly doctors and scientists
are doing! They are treating human bodies just like
merchandise, all under the guise of humanitarian research.
Think about how many cadavers are used in laboratories, in
universities, in medical schools, etc., not to mention in
secret government projects which we know absolutely nothing
about. I am willing to bet that a lot more bodies and body
parts are used for those kinds of things than those used to
actually save people's lives through organ transplants. And
tell me, do you really believe that those bodies have all
been donated to such causes? Do you honestly believe that
all of those people gave their permission for their bodies
to be used in such a manner prior to their deaths? The
scientific and medical communities buy and sell bodies, body
parts and blood just like any other commodity. And just
think of how expensive those organ transplant operations are
too! Even with medical insurance, it stills usually means
going into debt for life!

So exactly how is it that The System gets away with doing
this? Well, one of the ways they do it is by hardening their
hearts, just as I explained above when I shared the verse
regarding being past feeling. They are dead to their
conscience. They are dead to the voice of God. Not only are
they dead to the voice of God, but they try to act as gods
themselves by taking human life into their own hands. They
try to tell us when it actually begins, and when it ends. If
we allow them to control our minds through the hardness of
our own hearts, and to convince us of these things, then
they have total control over our lives. If we accept their
word instead of God's Word, then everything becomes
permissible because they are the ones making the rules. It
then becomes acceptable to prevent the conception of life,
or to abort a life, or to sell bodies, body parts and blood,
or to even exterminate life en masse if it doesn't conform
to the political and social ideologies of our particular
country. It's called war.

In the case of those in the medical profession, that isn't
all that they do. They also reply upon the desperation of
people who will do anything to remain live, or to keep
someone else alive. In addition, as I mentioned earlier,
they outright lie to people! They deceive people so that
they won't feel so guilty. And how do they deceive them? By
totally twisting the Word of God! They invent the idea of
'brain death' saying that when the brain stops functioning,
a person is dead. They are saying that life is in the brain
and not in the heart, not in the blood! They have totally
reversed The Truth of God! As far as God is concerned, as
long as your blood is pumping through your body, you are
still alive. Not only are you still alive, but there is
still hope of bringing you back to consciousness. Consider
many of the miraculous stories of people who have been in
comas for days, or months or years. As long as the brain has
not suffered any physical damage, it is not dead; even if no
brainwaves are being registered. As long as the blood is
pumping, you are alive, and God can bring you back if He so
chooses. But, because those doctors want that heart or that
lung or that kidney, or whatever they are after, they will
lie to you and convince you that it is hopeless! That sick
person will never wake up, or they will be a vegetable, or
they will be paralyzed, or they will have to be hooked up to
a machine for the rest of their lives, or you will be in
debt for the rest of your life.

And that is another angle to it. Hospitals are a business
plain and simple. As cruel and as crude as that may sound,
they are in business primarily for the money. While there
are indeed many sincere doctors who honestly want to help
humanity, there are just as many, if not more, who entered
the profession because of the lucrative business that it is.
They are as guilty as lawyers who likewise feed themselves
and get filty rich off of the misfortunes of others. So,
when a hospital board realizes that it is losing money
because they've got someone hooked up to an expensive life
support system which no one can possibly afford to pay for
indefinitely, humanitarianism goes right out the door, and
politics comes rushing in. To these ruthless individuals,
sickness and human bodies just means making money.
Therefore, they have invented all kinds of ways to convince
you to let go of that loved one so they can save money, or
get that body part to sell to some other desperate patient
down the hall. What gives these people the right? How do
they know what plans God might have? If Elijah raised up the
widow's son, if Jesus raised up Lazarus and Jairus's
daughter, and He Himself was raised from the dead, who are
they to tell you that God can't do a miracle? But you see,
they have absolutely no faith in God. Their faith is in
their own abilities as human gods. Their faith is in science
and medicine and modern technology. Not only that, but they
don't want you to have any faith in God either! I am
reminded of an incident in the Scriptures:

"And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which
had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be
healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of
his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and
they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng
thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And
Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that
virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she
was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before
him, she declared unto him before all the people for what
cause she had touched him, and how she was healed
immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good
comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace."
(Luke 8:43-48)

When it comes to our bodies, the Lord is the best Doctor
there is. After all, He made us. Not only that, but we are
told in the Scriptures that He knows exactly what we are
going to look like before we are even born:

"For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in
my mother's womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul
knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when
I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest
parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet
being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were
written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet
there was none of them." (Psalms 139:13-16)

So then, if the Lord wants us healed, He can and will do it
without any help from modern human technology. If He doesn't
heal you, then He must have a good reason for it. Perhaps
there is sin in your life. The reason people go to the
doctor is because they no longer have faith in God or in His
abilities to heal them. It is difficult to have faith to be
healed when you know there is something in your life which
is displeasing to the Lord. Another reason why the Lord may
choose to not heal you is because He may be reserving you
for some future miracle as we see throughout the Gospels.
For example, consider the story of Lazarus:

"Therefore his sisters sent unto him, saying, Lord, behold,
he whom thou lovest is sick. When Jesus heard that, he said,
This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God,
that the Son of God might be glorified thereby."
(John 11:3-4)

It is even possible that the Lord might allow you to be
afflicted with something just to keep you humble in your
service to Him, especially if you are being greatly used of
the Lord. Paul experienced such a thing. Remember, he used
to be a very proud self-righteous Pharisee. Paul's
affliction may have been poor eyesight due to His encounter
with the Lord on the road to Damascus. Taking into account
his past persecution against the children of the Lord, he
probably considered himself fortunate to even still be alive
after that encounter:

"And lest I should be exalted above measure through the
abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn
in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I
should be exalted above measure." (2 Corinthians 12:7)

But as I have said, in the case of modern medicine, it is
all a matter of economics. The flesh hackers need to totally
discourage you and take away all faith and hope so that they
can get what they are after, be it a body, or a body part,
or to simply save the hospital money. They convince you that
it is in your best interest as well as in the best interest
of your loved one to just pull the plug!...And that is when
it really gets gross as I will explain shortly.

In Biblical times, the human body was considered sacred,
even after death. People were much more spiritually-attuned
back then. Even some of the pagan cultures like the
Egyptians put modern society to shame. At least they
believed in the afterlife. They believed that the soul took
a cosmic journey to the stars, to Sirius in fact. Strict
burial procedures were followed by not only the Egyptians,
but by the Jews and other cultures as well. Consider Jesus'
own burial. Even though the Apostle Paul complained about
what a problem the human flesh is to live in as in his
famous 'O wretched man that I am!' statement, he also stated
quite clearly that our body is The Temple of God's Spirit;
and that it is to be respected as such:

"What? know ye not that 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: therefore glorify
God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's."
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

But today, in this age of cold calculated science and modern
technology, in which the love of many has waxed (or grown)
cold, there is no longer respect for the human body. It is
just another slab of meat in the freezer or on the table to
be divided into pieces, (organs), to be sold to the highest
bidders! OOPS! That was a slip of the tongue! <grin> I meant
the persons who can afford the transplants! Sadly, it is a
well-known fact that most transplanted organs go to the rich
and affluent! To highlight even further the callousness of
the medical profession, consider the controversies currently
raging regarding the use of fetal tissue, as well as cloning
and genetic engineering. The industrialized Westernized
world has lost its moral conscience! Absolutely nothing is
sacred anymore! Man has become his own god! He makes his own
rules!

In the process of working on this article, the Lord gave me
a really amazing example which helps to clarify the unique
relationship between the body, the blood and the Spirit.
Remember how I compared organ transplants to changing the
tire on a car? Well, in this example the Lord used a car
battery. To begin explaining this example, let me ask you a
question: Why is it that the Lord told both Noah and Moses
that the life is in the blood? Is it just because the blood
flows through the body carrying nutrients, picking up waste,
distributing oxygen, etc.? I don't think so. From what I
have learned in the course of writing this article, I have
become convinced that it is much deeper than that. Why is
the Lord so adamant about us not eating blood? Why is the
spilling of human blood punishable by death according to the
Mosaic Law? To give you an idea where I am leading with
this, let's consider the creation of Adam:

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

As I have explained in other articles, I understand this
verse to mean that it wasn't until God sent part of His
Eternal Spirit, or one of His Spirits of Life, a bit of
Spiritual Energy so-to-speak, to unite with the lifeless
body of Adam, that he actually became a living soul, a
living container. However, the question which arose in my
mind while I was writing this article is, exactly where does
the Spirit of Life reside in us? Some say it is in the area
called the solar plexus, a network of nerves located in the
abdomen. This may be true, but I am not convinced of it.

Let me now share with you the example of the car battery. We
all know that without a battery in it, a car will simply not
function. That car, like our body, can be brand new, but
without a battery it is lifeless. Until an external source
of energy is provided, it is just useless. You can even add
gasoline, but it still will not function. The gasoline is
like food which sustains the motor running, but it isn't the
original source of energy. In the same manner, eating food
helps to keep us alive, but it isn't what makes us alive to
begin with. The minute you add the battery to the car, the
energy starts flowing through the wires, just like
electrical impulses travel from the human brain through the
nerves to the various parts of our bodies. However, there is
more to it than that. Before that new battery is placed in
the car, there are several things which must be done to it.
Do you know what they are? One of these is to charge it up.
However, before you can charge it up, you must add a liquid
called electrolyte, what is commonly referred to as battery
acid. The electrolyte performs two functions: It both stores
and conducts electrical energy. Due to its size, it can only
store so much energy. This is why a car needs the rest of
the electrical system such as the alternator, the generator,
the regulator, etc. They help to keep the battery in a
charged up state as well as to pass electrical energy to the
coil where it is multiplied and then sent on its way to the
various components which require electricity to operate.

So then, do you see what I am driving at with this example?
(and that was not an intended pun on the car example!) When
the Lord made our bodies, much like that car, He needed a
special place, a special receptacle where He could store the
Original Source of Energy, the Spirit of Life. Not only
that, it had to be a place where the Energy, or Spirit,
could be easily conducted throughout the body to give it
Life. Is that place the brain like modern-day scientists and
doctors would have us believe? Absolutely not! Where did the
Lord say the Source of Life is located in the body? IN THE
BLOOD! Do you see now? Our blood is just like that
electrolyte. It is liquid, the perfect conductor, and it
also happens to be acidic! Haven't you ever noticed that
when you have cut yourself and sucked the blood? It is sharp
on your tongue, isn't it? God's Spirit flows and dwells
within our blood! That is why the Lord said the life of the
body is in the blood! His Spirit isn't just in one spot such
as in our solar plexus, or in the third eye! It is
throughout your body flowing through that electrical
conductor called blood! Remember what Jesus said:

"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth
nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit,
and they are life." (John 6:63)

Do you see? Spirit is Life! Without the Spirit of God in our
bodies, there is no Life! We learned from the Old Testament
that the Life is in the blood! And now we have seen that the
Spirit is in the blood too! Do you still need more proof? If
so, consider what John also had to say in one of his
epistles:

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father,
the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And
there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and
the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one."
(1 John 5:7-8)

Do you see? God, the Word, (Jesus), and the Holy Ghost are
one in Heaven; they are each an aspect of the whole Godhead.
And the Spirit, the water and the blood are one on Earth!
Not just in a spiritual sense, but physically as well! They
are each a part of the whole! They agree in one. They work
together because they ARE together in your body! What is the
primary ingredient of your blood? WATER! And where is God's
Spirit located in your body? In the blood! They are an
integral part of each other! When your blood is gone, your
Spirit is gone! Your life is gone! Having said that, let me
share a few more things with you from the Old Testament. Do
you remember what the Lord said to Cain after he had slain
his brother Abel? Here it is:

"And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy
brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now art
thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to
receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;"
(Genesis 4:10-11)

How can a person's blood cry from the ground? It can't, can
it? Was the Lord speaking figuratively? Perhaps. Or how
about this? The voice of Abel's Spirit cried up from the
ground because the Spirit is in the blood! The Spirit is
Life, and the life of the body is in the blood, thus Abel's
Spirit was in his blood which Cain poured out on the ground
when he slew him. Here is another example:

"The spirit of a man will sustain his infirmity; but a
wounded spirit who can bear?" (Proverbs 18:14)

This verse is making a direct connection between ones spirit
and sickness. As shown in the previous example of the woman
who had an issue of blood, Jesus was well aware of this
connection. Physical sickness is quite often a manifestation
of a spiritual problem. When there is something physically
wrong with the blood, there is something wrong with the
Spirit, because the Spirit is in the blood. This is why when
Jesus healed that woman, as well as other persons, we read
that virtue, or Spirit, left His body and flowed into
theirs. He healed or recharged their bodies by adding more
of His Spirit to their blood. In fact, in this case, this
woman had a spiritual leak so-to-speak. Because the Spirit
in our blood sustains our physical bodies, this woman was
weak and sickly until Jesus healed and recharged her. This
is why it says 'a wounded spirit who can bear?' In a more
physical sense, when you are sick, what mechanism does your
body often use to heal itself? Doesn't it send antibodies to
fight infections? This is the physical manifestation of your
Spirit going on the attack to ward off negative spiritual
influences. If you dout this, isn't it true that when we
suffer severe bouts of depression (a spiritual attack), that
our bodies are more inclined to get sick physically. So you
see, if you heal the spiritual problem, the physical problem
will likewise be fixed.

Now, if you want to take this one step further, consider
some of the things I spoke about in the 'Homosexuality And
Lesbianism' article. Despite the various theories which have
been proposed, the origin of the AIDS virus remains a total
mystery. As I mentioned in that article, there are some who
are firmly convinced that it is a curse from God to punish a
rebellious world which refuses to amend its wicked ways.
Really think about this. AIDS is a disease of the blood. It
is a spiritual disease because the Spirit is in the blood.
The people who practice homosexuality and lesbianism are
spiritually sick, and it is manifesting itself through a
physical disease in the blood known as Acquired Immune
Deficiency Syndrome. In fact, the whole world is becoming
more spiritually sick each passing day. It is for this
reason that AIDS has now spread to the heterosexual
community as well. AIDS is a form of spiritual oppression
because people's bodies are not able to defend themselves
from attack, either spiritual attack or physical attack. In
thinking about this, the verse which just came to me is one
Paul wrote to the Corinthians who were indulging in all
kinds of illicit sexual practices:

"To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of
the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the
Lord Jesus." (1 Corinthians 5:5)

As I have stated before, Satan is God's executioner. It
seems that the Lord is allowing him to destroy these
people's bodies through AIDS in the hope that He can save
their souls. Remember, Satan was also given complete control
over Job's body by the Lord. Why should it surprise us then
that He would do the same thing today with the wicked?:

"And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea,
all that a man hath will he give for his life. But put forth
thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he
will curse thee to thy face. And the LORD said unto Satan,
Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life." (Job 2:4-6)

Despite all of the information I have now provided, we are
still not quite at the end of this Scriptural Trail. Do you
remember what else Jesus said regarding blood? It was such a
hard saying that many left off from following Him. It is
found in the sixth chapter of John:

"Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his
blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and
drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him
up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my
blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh
my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him." (John 6:53-56)

You see how clear the meaning of Jesus' words now becomes
with everything I have explained so far? Unless we drink His
Blood, that is, take in, receive or accept His Spirit, there
is no Life in us. He then goes on to say, if we drink His
Blood, He dwells in us, and we in Him! It is a joining of
Spirits. It is a spiritual union or wedding! The Marriage
Feast of the Lamb! And when we drink His Blood and His
Spirit dwells in us, we bear Him spiritual children, as the
Bride of Christ. We win others to His Kingdom!

Now, we know that in the above verses, Jesus was speaking
symbolically of His coming crucifixion in which His Blood
would be shed for the sins of the world, right? Keeping in
mind then that the Spirit, the water and the blood are one,
take a look at exactly what happened during our Lord's
crucifixion:

"But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and
forthwith came there out blood and water." (John 19:34)

"This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ;
not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the
Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth."
(1 John 5:6)

You see, when Jesus shed His Blood on the Cross, when water
and blood were poured out from His physical body, it was
symbolic of God's Spirit of forgiveness being poured out on
humanity. Remember what I have said all along: the Spirit is
Life, and Life is in the Blood, and the Spirit is in the
Blood. In the Levitical Law, we are told many times that the
Blood is for atonement. If the Spirit is in the Blood, then
the Spirit is likewise for atonement. Jesus poured out His
Blood, His Spirit, His Life in a symbolic gesture of God
pouring out His Spirit of forgiveness so that we might have
Eternal Life if we will only believe. In like manner, Jesus'
Body was broken or crucified on the Cross for the healing of
our physical bodies: His Body for our physical healing, and
His Blood for our spiritual healing. In a more literal
sense, God's Spirit was indeed poured out a short time later
on the day of Pentecost. From that day until now, that
Spirit of forgiveness has been spreading and being received
by millions of people all around the world who have indeed
received new spiritual Life by the Blood poured out at
Calvary. We have all been washed in the Blood, (or Spirit of
forgiveness), of the Lamb. In fact, we are told that there
will be one great final pouring out of the Spirit in these
last days:

And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my
spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters
shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young
men shall see visions:" (Joel 2:28)

Now, if you deny these truths of the Spirit, if you refuse
to drink of the Cup of the Lord's Blood, if you don't
partake of the Lord's Spirit, if you walk away in unbelief,
then you are partaking of the spirit of antichrist!:

"From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked
no more with him." (John 6:66)

Did you notice the scripture reference for those who turn
away from the Lord? 666! <grin> If you refuse the Lord's
Blood, His Cup, His Spirit, that only leaves you with one
choice, and there is definite proof for it:

"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils:
ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table
of devils." (1 Corinthians 10:21)

Either you are communing or having communion with God's
Spirit, or else you are doing it with the Devil!

Taking into consideration all of these things, is it any
wonder then that the Lord makes such a big deal about
spilling or drinking blood! It is a very spiritual thing to
drink or take in the blood of another person or another
animal, because to do this is to actually imbibe or take in
their very spirit! It is akin to spiritual possession! With
good reason the Lord frowns upon it!

As you can now see, this whole issue of organ transplants,
blood transfusions, brain death, etc., is much deeper than
you probably realized. Believe me, it is much deeper than I
realize too! Don't think that I have all of this information
sitting here in some little book or study guide, because I
don't. You've heard me say it before, and I will say it
again: these revelations are as new to me as they are to
some of you. Much like what happened with Paul and the
others, I receive a lot of things by direct revelation from
the Lord. Undoubtedly, some reading this will be taken
back by me even saying such a thing. I am sorry if that
offends some of you, but that is just the way it is. I don't
have study books or reference materials or some theological
degree to impress people with. All I have is a high school
education of many years ago. All I know is I sit here and
type and open myself up to the Lord's Spirit, and He never
fails to answer me. I sit here stunned and amazed at some of
the things He shows me! All I've got is the Word that has
been buried inside of me all of these years, and my Online
Bible to help me find things when I don't remember where
they are found. I don't even have the Hebrew and Greek
lexicons! So I have no choice but to believe that this is a
work of God's Spirit. The way these different Scriptures
just flow together from one end of the Bible to the other
never ceases to amaze me! This is the way my faith runs. If
you don't have the faith to believe the things I say, well,
that is your business and your right. However, if I get
something directly from the Lord, I believe it.

So then, returning to the theme of organ transplants and
being brain dead, as long as the blood is still flowing
through a person's body, they are still alive in God's eyes,
because their Spirit is still in them and flowing through
them. Don't believe these doctors who try to make you
believe in reverse. The brain is the coordinator of bodily
functions and a storage area for information, but it is NOT
the source of power! The power flows through the body in the
blood because that is where your Spirit is. If anything,
your heart is like that battery which contains the
electolyte and passes the energy to the rest of the car.
Looking at this from another angle, you can consider your
brain to be similar to your hard drive, or to RAM. However,
it is not the CPU. The CPU is the real processor. It is
where everything originates. It is the traffic controller.
If you have data corruption, or a system freeze-up, or even
a complete system crash, as long as that CPU is in working
condition, the computer can still be repaired. You may have
lost some data in the process, but it can usually be
replaced. In like manner, as I've pointed out in other
articles, the Lord indicated through the prophet Jeremiah
that it is actually the heart which is our thinking organ:

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

Jesus Himself confirmed this very thing when He said:

"For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders,
adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness,
blasphemies:" (Matthew 15:19)

Was God lying through the mouth of Jeremiah? Was Jesus
lying? Then who is lying when they say life is in the brain?
Who is lying when they say that brain death is bodily death?
Who is lying when they say it is the brain that does the
thinking? I'll tell you who, those money-minded hospitals
who want to either save money or else get those promised
body parts to sell to someone else! It is the heart which is
the center of our beings. It is the heart which thinks,
feels and pumps the blood which carries God's life-giving
Spirit to every part of our bodies! The heart is the CPU,
the one that really makes the decisions. The brain just
helps to carry them out and stores information. Just like a
computer, the brain may go on the blink for a while, but as
long as the CPU, the central processing unit, the heart, is
still properly functioning and keeping your Spirit flowing
in your veins, there is always hope, because there is still
Life.

This all makes so much sense if you stop to think about all
of the different things I have said about Spirit, Energy,
Blood and Life. Our bodies are simply made alive by being
receptacles for and conductors of God's Spirit, or Divine
Energy. In all honesty, no one really knows what electricity
is, do they? Oh, they have their fancy little theories about
flowing electrons, but have they really ever seen it? Of
course not! Yet, when the Ole Ticker (heart) has problems,
what do they do? They give it a few electrical shocks to
make it start pumping again. In some cases, they install
battery-operated pacemakers which gives the heart a slight
jolt to keep it pumping normally. You see, the heart is an
electrical engine. It is a Spiritual Engine. It is the
receptacle for and distributor of our Spirit which we
receive from God. So again, Life is in the Blood because the
Spirit is in the Blood.

Now, for those of you who are not aware of it, I am going to
share some shocking news which will further help you to
understand why some money-minded doctors push the 'brain
dead' idea so hard, and then do their best to paint as bleak
a picture as possible regarding those who are on extended
life support systems. Are you aware of the fact that in
order to remain viable, donated organs must be taken from a
human body while the blood is still pumping through it? In
other words, according to the Biblical definition, you are
still alive! Your Spirit is still within you! Maybe your
brain has gone on the blink, but you are still alive! I have
proof that what I am saying is true. I have a question and
answer file which contains a lot of shocking information
regarding organ transplants which most folks are not aware
of. This means that if you personally have chosen to be an
organ donor following your death, your loved ones are going
to have to leave you on life support while the flesh hackers
are cutting out your eyes, or your heart, or whatever organs
you have decided to donate!

While I can truly understand the sincere motivations in
those who are willing and who wish to donate their body
parts or give blood, just visualizing such a scenario fills
me with disgust! It is almost akin to vampirism! In fact,
bases on the evidence I have presented, it is not only
physical vampirism, but it is spiritual vampirism because
the Spirit is in the blood! When you donate blood, you are
giving of your Spirit to someone else, whether it be a
relative or some unknown person. It is commercial vampirism!

In conclusion, if others wish to submit their bodies to such
medical treacheries, that is their choice; but personally,
when I go, I wish to remain completely intact. While I have
stated some very strong views in this article, I want you
the reader to know that I do realize that this is a very
personal matter. The primary purpose of this article is to
make you aware of the deep spiritual implications of organ
transplants and blood transfusions so that you can make an
informed choice should you someday be confronted with such a
situation. In my view, I just can't understand why anyone
who is a Christian would want to hold on to this life when
the Lord says it is time to go. This life is full of
heartaches and headaches, and the older you get, the more
your tired old body breaks down. If you are a Christian, you
know what awaits you, so why delay your graduation through
an organ transplant to prolong your life? The only possible
reason I can think of would be if you have others who
heavily depend upon you in some way. Perhaps you have a
spouse or children. These would be reasons for any of us to
weigh our decisions heavily. However, at the same time, we
must have faith in the Lord that He knows what He is doing.
We must believe that if anything happens in our lives, it is
because He has allowed it to happen. We must firmly believe
that God is in control and that He does not make mistakes.
We must believe that everything He does in our lives is an
act of love, even if we may not understand it or see it as
such at the time. Remember what Jesus said in the Gospel of
Matthew:

"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them
shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the
very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not
therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."
(Matthew 10:29-31)

The Apostle Paul reiterated this thought in his epistle to
the Romans when he said:

"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." (Romans 8:28)

So then, if death does come knocking at our doors, we should
greet it and not be afraid of it, or try to run from it. We
should look forward to it with eager anticipation, as long
as the time and the place are of His choosing and not our
own. I discuss this topic more in full in another article
entitled 'Heavens Gate: Suicide, The Right Way To Go?'

On the other hand, I can understand why ungodly and
unbelieving people of the world would want to undergo organ
transplants. Because they don't have faith in God, because
they don't know what their future holds, they are utterly
terrified by death. If they have led lives which have been
displeasing to the Lord, then they have good reason to fear.
After all, we are told:

"It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living
God." (Hebrews 10:31)

But not so with us. I pray that this article has been
informative, and a blessing to many.
