The Afghan Opium Trade… Going Strong!

WARCommentary & Analysis


L. A. Marzulli

Narcotics boom, West’s legacy for Afghanistan:

(Caution – Islamic site – use discretion)

“All we’ve seen to be perfectly candid about it, over the past 13 years is a 40-fold increase in opium cultivation and the explosion of the heroin epidemic in and around Afghanistan,” said Rick Rozoff from Stop NATO International Network in a Monday interview.”

“The only thing they effectively have done is officiate over an explosion of opium cultivation, the deaths of tens and thousands of Afghans, including thousands of civilians, and the displacement of not only hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of Afghans,” Rozoff said.

As a follow-up to a post I did last week about endless war, here is a story which points the finger at what I believe is the “hidden government” within the United States.  Let’s step back for a moment and examine the statements above.  The article state that a 40-fold increase in the opium harvest has happened since the US prosecuted the Afghanistan war.  I have addressed this in other blogs before, but after 13 years of “fighting” in Afghanistan it would appear the 1 TRILLION dollar annual opium harvest is alive and well. Who profits from this?  You may remember when Oliver North was accused of running guns and bringing back drugs from Central America.  If true, and I believe it may be, we have precedent of the USA’s involvement with this sordid business.   Take a look at the quote below, is this former DEA agent lying to us?  Is he a whistle-blower?  Is he telling the truth?

“The connections piled up quickly. Contra planes flew north to the U.S., loaded with cocaine, then returned laden with cash. All under the protective umbrella of the United States Government. My informants were perfectly placed: one worked with the Contra pilots at their base, while another moved easily among the Salvadoran military officials who protected the resupply operation. They fed me the names of Contra pilots. Again and again, those names showed up in the DEA database as documented drug traffickers. “When I pursued the case, my superiors quietly and firmly advised me to move on to other investigations.” Former DEA Agent Celerino Castillo

Here is the big question for us to consider.  WWII took 5 years, but that was a world war.  With that in mind, how many Taliban are in Afghanistan and why can’t we claim a victory after 13 years there?   The Taliban has limited resources,  we have the best equipped military in the history of the world.  The Taliban have no central command.   We have the most sophisticated array of communications in the history of warfare and we have an almost endless supply of “blood and treasure” who enlist in our armed forces and then are shipped to Afghanistan to fight in the endless war there. Who profits from the opium trade?  Where does the money go?  How are the drugs transported out of the country?  Surely Afghan president Karzai must know what is going on and I would bet he benefits in some way from the trade.  More importantly are the moral implications here.  If we are engaged in the opinion trade then we have sunk to a new low.  Think it can’t happen here?  Think again, as the Brits fought the Opium wars with China, for the right to sell opium to the Chinese!

In closing todays post.   The sale of opium enslaves everyone who is involved with it, from those who cultivate it to the addict on the street who thinks of nothing else but getting the next “fix.”  Opium is the drug of the devil and it has ruined countless lives.  It would appear, from the evidence that I’ve cited above, that certain factions of our government are involved in the most heinous of actions.  If true where is the outrage from the citizens in our country?

  1. The fallen angels taught mankind the use of herbs, roots and plants ie. drugs and mankind learned well. Drugs open the pineal gland which is a gateway for demonic entrance into the mind. A recent estimate is 70,000,000 people on psychotropic drugs in the US along with increased marijuana use and heroin addiction on the rise. There is a push to legalize marijuana in the US which will open the door to many other now illegal drugs. Mind altering drugs are a tool of the devil for sure.

    • John Michael, your mention of the pineal gland, corresponds with my comment below. Psychotherapy and Carl Jung go hand-in-hand with hindu beliefs of the tilaki or bindi(the red dot) that Indian’s wear. One other belief of the theosophisits regards a vast cave complex underneath Tibet inhabited by demons. In the 30’s the Nazis sent an expedition to find it and in the 20’s the soviets tried to find it. Today’s rise of fascism seems to all be related to these points. This brings us to anointing of the holy spirit, at this same point, symbolically, on the forehead, as protection. At His holy Name every knee will bend.

    • John T,
      I’m writing an article on the effects of mind altering drugs on the pineal gland. Lots of info on the web about this phenomenon.

    • John Michael, check out this video at about 31:43, Brian Wilson talks about voices that he has heard since a 1965 lsd trip. It goes along with what you posted.

  2. @ afghan
    – worse coming … gene splicing narcotic production into common plants / microbes … GMO drugs
    – pharmakia ~ sorcery ~ hermes / mercury-god (enemy angel ruler) ~ mystery babylon (collective)
    – country is a major lithium metal source … re: batteries-r-us

    @ wars & rumors of war
    – military industrial complex, global arms merchants
    – mars-god ~ death (enemy angel ruler) & hell (collective)

    When the resurrections come …
    – and the saved find Christ’s DNA (His Blood) in their resurrected bodies
    – “we shall be like Him when He returns” (Hallelu-Yah!)
    – and the damned find enemy angel DNA in their resurrected bodies
    – “as children of the devil(s)”

    There won’t much to say…
    – sheep that way … frisky followers rejoicing
    – goats & geeps that way … weeping and gnashing of teeth

  3. LA. my brother and I were talking about this yesterday, a frontpage news story ran about how heroin’s use is on the rise. My brother is a police chief and very concerned about the rise in it’s use. Coincidentally, I brought up the Afghan connection, and my theory about the street name of heroin is “horse”, and this is the Chinese year-of-the-horse, and of course of course(ha) possible connections to the white horse of the four horses of revelation. At that point, I lost him as he laughs at my “x-files” mentality. lol

    Another story, yesterday, concerned rapper Jay-z, illuminati shill, who is supposedly a part of the “5% cult”. Some group where they think that each person is a god. Many years ago, a wise preacher stated that there are two ways that satan tries to destroy faith. The first is by denial of God, the second, is by promoting the idea that each person can be god. What kind of over-blown ego can believe this? Probably only someone with psychopathic tendencies.

    While searching for info. on Pegasus prophecies, related to the white horse judgment, I came across the fact that Carl Jung, a psychotherapist and friend of Freud, believed that Pegasus was a symbol of the spiritual energy that allow access to the realm of the gods on Mount Olympus. He also came up with the “collective unconscious” theory. Similar to Cayce’s akashic records?

    This makes me think of that preacher, who said a tool of satan, is to make people think that they can be gods. Even Ray Kurzweil’s “singularity” wants to replicate life in this earthly realm, but isn’t it really an attempt to mock God’s creation? Human-computer interface, and A.I. greater than human intelligence is a theme of movies and an abomination to the Lord. So much reminds me of Nimrods’s NWO. I went from LA’s blog to that last point, who would of thunk it?

  4. The Stargate Of Aramu Muru Peru – locals call it the doorway of the Devil ( Diablo) – a place of mysterious disappearances of people

  5. When you “pump” a nation’s people full of drugs, they are easy to control….and to KILL. Whether it’s hard core ‘stuff’ or the gateway
    drugs like weed or alcohol….and even smoking….the purpose behind their abuse is TO KILL AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.

    When I went to Bible School at Rhema Bible Training Center in Tulsa OK…i did not realize that crack cocaine was IMMENSELY HUGE
    in that state. Soooo many arrests were made….just for that drug alone! MASSIVE portions of the population were simply addicted
    ….pretty much for life….from that one substance! It is a hell hole to get out of that mess!!! MOST DIE FROM IT !!!!

    Crack cocaine literally EATS AWAY THE BRAIN TISSUE….you can check that out on youtube! Makes the brain look like swiss cheese!

    YES…it will BLOW YOUR MIND too ….IF you simply watch the progression of this addiction and it’s toll on the lives of people and families.

    I tell you the truth, the drug scene …. is a MONEY MAKING RACKET …. just like LA is telling us in the above article. Period. End of story!

    HUGE SUMS of MONEY ….are made with FINES….IMPRISONMENT….REHAB….SCALE DOWN DRUGS….and it destroys MOST people.

    Police are out to find DRUGGIES and DRUNKS……as their PRIMARY duty. It is NOT for “safety concerns” that police are employed !!!

    Police patrol the streets…..TO MAKE MONEY !!! Your safety and mine…is the least of their concern. If you think otherwise, you’re deceived.

    Our government is allowing and escalating the demise and destruction of our people….and therefore our very nation. Don’t be fooled !!

  7. I don’t think opium is the devil’s drug or plant. I don’t think heroin or cocaine are outright bad. Does anybody really know why these drugs are illegal?? Hint: It has nothing to do with the drugs being dangerous. However, it is about racism. That’s right people -racism. For years the penalty for powdered cocaine was less than the penalty for crack cocaine. Who usually used powdered cocaine versus the use of crack cocaine… Yes, I know that there will be people who will say that Crack is a more addictive form of the substance and that is true, but how many of you have felt the repercussions of someone’s coke abuse versus crack abuse …? We all know Mr. Obama admitted to having a few lines. Allegedly, Mr. Bush was known to enjoy the Bolivian marching powder, along with his predecessor. Look up Roger Clinton and you’ll find out some interesting things. Did anyone one of them do crack? I don’t know. The desire of humanity to free the mind, search for chemical pleasure, and to expand conciousness whether by drugs or by fasting is a powerful drive. For some of us, Jesus is our rock, while for others, they turn to the streets. Do I believe drugs open pathways, certainly. Drugs, fasting, and even pain can teach us some remarkable universal truths, provide insight into our souls and into those of others, and can relieve us from other pain. (If you’re fasting you may want to use some heroin to help with the stomach cramps -just joking. But do you ever wonder why they give terminal people morphine..? Because it’s the painless way to starve and dehydrate a person. Even legal drugs open up pathways, if we’re not careful. Opium, marijuana, the coca leaf are not evil, what people choose to do with the byproducts may be evil. Just like guns, guns don’t kill any more than a toothpick when not being touched by a person.

    Instead of trying to see the devil behind every substance we should see the demon in every person that needs to be exorcised, who can be freed because Christ gave us power to do so. Just one foolish brother’s opinion on this matter. I would like to say -this post should have been run in 2002-2003 when GW was in office, but thank you LA for voicing it now because it remains to be the truth. I guess the war on meth has abated and heroin has come to take its place. Interesting when you think about it…

    20’s cocaine/pot/alcohol (stimulant prevails)
    30’s pot/heroin (whatever is cheaper prevails)
    40’s heroin (black jazz musicians) , speed for those in the theater of war
    50’s pot, speed, LSD invented (Beatnick culture)
    60’s massive proliferation of drug culture, mostly hallucinogenics (sp) (culminates w/Woodstock, Hippy culture-ends due to Charles Manson /Monterrey Music Festival)
    70’s heroin/marijuana (depressant prevails)
    late 70’s to 1985 cocaine powder (stimulant prevails- lauded as the champagne of drugs and its said to be harmless)
    1985-90 is -crack cocaine in urban areas (powerful stimulant prevails)
    90-94 resurgence of heroin in Western US/Seattle scene (depressant/narcotic)
    94-99 -heroin chic/MDMA/meth (cheaper self made stimulant being produced)
    2000’s -MDMA/meth (meth epidemic)
    2008-present heroin resurging especially on Jersey shore, meth (not in the news so much.)

  8. Q: What’s behind addiction — spiritually?
    A: Rev. 17:4-6

    [T]he woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

    A drunken harlot intoxicated with bloodlust and decked out with jewelry, just about says it all.

    Q: What basic type of sin is addiction? (…and trap)
    A: Pick one… a. other gods, b. idols, c. blasphemy, d. murder, e. coveting, f. unfaithful, g. stealing, h. false witness

    I’ll assert that addiction is coveting, and point to:
    Rev. 17:14

    And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.

    Interesting that the doom of such is doubled … and like a millstone cast into the depths of the sea.

    Q: What kind of addictions?
    A: substances, stuff, sex, gambling, and such

    Q: What’s the solution?
    A: Not what – Who.

    Christ Jesus has been anointed to Deliver the Captives. He is The Truth that sets us free. He coaches us to overcome through practice, reproof, and discipline — led of the Spirit — so that we do not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. Remember the Belt of Truth as one part of the Armor of God. And gird yourself up.

    While the distracted are off looking for physical, emotional, neural, and social controls for addiction — don’t miss that there’s a spiritual void (a bottomless pit) that can never be fathomed, sated, or known (cp. mystery) — for those caught in the clutches of the great harlot.

    Turn from the strange woman and to Jesus of Nazareth. He’s the only way out.

    See: “” for many personal witnesses. (including one of mine)

    • “Now these are not drunk as ye suppose, seeing as how it’s only the 3rd hour of the day…”


      “I tell you a mystery, we shall all change, in the twinkling of an eye…”

      Isaiah 58 … The True Fast — so busy serving others you don’t notice yourself — is a very great blessing

    • Ephesians 5:17-21

      Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

      if they’d had kilts…

  9. Scripture clearly warns against the practice of being drunk in the Spirit: One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is “temperance”. One of the fruits of the flesh is “drunkenness”.

    Some false apostles, prophets etc. in the church encourage drunkenness in the Spirit but this is contrary to specific revelation. Paul warns of the danger of “another spirit”…another gospel…another Jesus. Out of control behaviour such as being slain in the spirit, or speaking in tongues with no control over one’s tongue, being so drunk in the Spirit that one cannot drive his or her car
    after the service is a sign of the flesh or some kind of demonic control over the persons will.


    [4] For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    [13] Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
    [14] But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
    [15] For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
    [16] But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
    [17] And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God,I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
    [18] And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
    [19] And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
    [20] The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
    [21] And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    [22] Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also


    [16] This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
    [17] For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
    [18] But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
    [19] Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
    [20] Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    [21] Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
    [22] But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    [23] Meekness, temperance (self control ) : against such there is no law.

    • Gordy….

      1) Being drunk with WINE, BEER, or other alcoholic drink is NOT permitted. see Ephesians 5:18…Romans 13:13….Luke 21:34

      2) Being FILLED with the Holy Spirit is an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT thing….which IS godly. See Acts 2…Ephesians 5:18

      You need to understand that the first one IS OF THE FLESH…..and the 2nd one IS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

    • The fruit of the Holy Spirit is no crazy out of control behaviour or trance like states as is breaking out in some churches and the example in the following video:

    • Totally in agreement with you Gordy, …sorry Kirk.

      God’s Holy Spirit is HOLY
      …one thing that is very easy to overlook if we’re not careful, ….HOLINESS from the HOLY Spirit.

      God wants spiritual fruit, not charismaniac nuts.

      HIS gifts as HE determines by His Spirit, not fleshly and licentious misinterpretations from us.

    • Folks….
      There is a HUGE difference with people being FLESHLY / CARNALLY MINDED…and EVEN CONTROLLED or INFLUENCED BY DEMONS.



      FURTHERMORE….I dare say I am accurate in my summation of my NEXT point stated here: ( but i am willing to be corrected of this fact )

      That there is “probably” NOT one person on this blog….with the exception of LA Marzulli….that has EVER cast out a demon/demons.

      THEREFORE….I HIGHLY DOUBT ….that there is someone “here” that can “speak from experience” in this area.


      Ya know what…..I have heard people BAD MOUTH the following people……


      ………….and the list could go on and on and on and on and on and on.

      Each of these individuals listed …..are the same as the rest of us…..”Sinners saved by GRACE through FAITH in The Lord Jesus Christ.”

      YET….It continues ….TO BAFFLE MY BRAIN TO THE “N” th DEGREE….how people can sit back…point fingers at people ….

      [ REMEMBER…..”those people”… ACTS 2….were supposed “DRUNK ON WINE” !!! Some of you need to actually READ that chapter! ]


      Now then, OBVIOUSLY there is a difference ….between “The Genuine” …. and “The Counterfeit”.

      The VERY EVIDENCE of the counterfeit………PROVES that there IS ….a GENUINE !!!!

      Nobody will find a ….$ 3.00 Bill being counterfeited….cause there are NO REAL ONES IN CIRCULATION, but there are $20, $50, $100 !!

      So, THE CHURCH has to learn to discern rightly…or…Be like the Pharisees who accused JESUS of healing a man by the ruler of demons!

      THAT is VERY DANGEROUS GROUND !!!! THIS is what “religious people” often do….which is quite the opposite of The Spiritually Mature.

      And by the way, …if you can’t figure out that “the kundalini spirit” …is evil at it’s core…THEN maybe you need to mature…like maybe a lot.

      I certainly don’t need “a video” to figure that out.

    • Who can forget this fiasco and most embarrassing to the Body of Christ moment? Two of the most prominent “Leaders” of what is known as the “Charismatic movement”.

      “God wants spiritual fruit, not charismaniac nuts.” Great quote Bruce.

      Goodnight Chet.
      Goodnight David.

    • Kirk, my passionate BROTHER (whether we agree or not)
      Please remember Acts 17:11 and also that it is by their FRUITS that we will know who is genuine.

      There are most certainly people on your list who clearly exhibit this TRUE fruit, however there are some you might need to have another look further into through the TRUTH GRID of scripture.

      Please don’t be offended bro, just remember that we ARE living in the end times, and our Lord said that there would be ‘false teachers and false prophets’ in these times. If scripture confirms and affirms them, they’re legit. If not, guess who they are…?

    • To be drunk, intoxicated, inebriated is the opposite of a sober mind and what ever method that helps you to reach this point be in drugs, alcohol, witchcraft, spiritism etc. all produce the same effect, you are drunk.

      For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
      1 Corinthians 14:33

      Unfortunately those who are drunk in the spirit are those who are in the church who justify their drunkenness with most of the same teachings of the Word of God that teaches us to be sober.
      The sober people are now bad because they don`t get drunk and the drunk people are now good because they are drunk. All of this causing confusion and division (bad fruit).

      To take counsel from a drunk is deception.


  11. Here we go again….Megachurch pastor admits affair, quits

    Megachurch pastor resigns, citing ‘moral failing’

    Fort Lauderdale, Florida (WPLG Miami) The senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale has resigned after confessing to cheating on his wife, according to WPLG Miami.

    Pastor Bob Coy, 58, reportedly confessed a “moral failing which disqualifies him from continuing his leadership role at the church” to Calvary leaders on Wednesday. A board meeting was called the next day, when he resigned.

    Coy, who has led the church since its founding in 1985, said he will now focus his full attention on his personal relationship with God and his family. The radio, television and digital media that distributes Coy’s teachings have also been suspended.

    “The governing board of the church is providing counselors and ministers who will help guide him through the process of full repentance, cleansing and restoration,” Calvary Chapel said in a statement.

    Calvary is one of the largest churches in Florida, with some 20,000 members who worship in 10 locations across the state.

    We see this over and over and over. Hypocrisy after hypocrisy after hypocrisy. Cheating on wives. Sinning with children. Building huge personal residences. Hating on others and proposing to tell everyone how to live….I am sick of it. When will the church admit there is an epidemic running rampant through the church?? This man of Gawd is not the first to fall into sexual sin and he will certainly not be the last…The church desperately needs to address the problem of sexual sin and lust inside its flock. It is getting out of control. Some of these so called “singles” ministries are nothing more than a place to get a hook up. Sexual sin in the church must be exposed and purged…God will not be mocked and these so called men and woman of God that have allowed perversion and sickness to creep into their lives need to shake themselves loose and ask forgiveness. There is a huge elephant in the room inside many congregations that no one wants to address or talk about. .Pastors are afraid to approach the subject in fear of losing membership and or being scolded by the members of church their board….Sexual sin is not a sin that just involves or effects the sinner, it destroys and rips families apart . Those who fall victim to the enemy and give in to the temptations not only disgraces themselves but their family as well….
    It’s not easy to keep a pure mind when every Movie, TV show shown exploits sexual situation every chance they get. I stay in prayer and I realize when I am being attacked …Satan cannot get a foothold unless I let him, unless I open the door. If I am watching a football game and the cameras spend a bit too much time on the cheerleaders I will simply turn off the TV and go work in the yard. The other day I went to a restaurant, a pizza place near my house, as I walked in I realized all the waitresses were scantily clad, obliviously a theme for the resturaunt,,I walked in the door and right back out, like it was a revolving door . I didn’t need to stop and think about it, I had no business in there. I nipped the sin right in the bud before it even had a chance to take root. I crucified my flesh right at the front door of that restaurant because I will be honest, my carnal mind wanted to go in, and I of course I would and could try and justify it by saying, I’m just there for pizza. But once I saw what the theme of restaurant was, if I had stayed I would have open myself up to sin.
    Same with pastors or anyone that gets caught up in sexual sin, they need to run from any circumstances that would invite such evil such as a male pastor should never counsel a female in his office without another female present all times, you would think this is a no brainier right? Well, believe it or not it still goes on, Satan loves opportunities like this as he knows mans minds are weak, and his ego is huge, a very bad combination.
    If I could remind these pastors of one thing, I would tell them; one of the major “perks” of being God – you don’t need any hidden webcams!” he sees everything. Sin is only fun for a season, and once the enemy has his hooks in, you will be exposed, and lose everything. God will not be mocked ,,ask Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Baker, Marcus Lamb and my friend and yours, Benny Hinn just to name a few.
    I apologize for the diatribe, however, sexual sin make me very angry as it destroys and breaks up families, and childern are left to suffer do to the sefishness and shortcomings of one.

    • Oh and RIP Mickey Rooney…It’s the end of an era. Those of us “of a certain age” are universally mourning the loss of this very fine actor. He gave the world tremendous joy through his Andy Hardy films and other works. When I look at what’s in Hollywood today I close my eyes and sigh. Thanks for the memories Mickey

    • And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

      It might appear to be, but appearances can be deceptive. One needs to be smarter than what they are working on/with.

    • Someone in the spirit may act different than the average person and the explanation was that they were drunk. They were trying to disparage the apostles.

      There is a huge difference in having some qualities that may be construed by others as being drunk (because they don’t understand the spirit) and being a raging lunatic.

      Bottomline is if the apostles were acting like these charasmatics today they would have been accused of being mad, a lunatic or even more accurately… ‘possessed’.

      What this is, is a form of mass hypnosis. People are there to willingly and willfully experience something outrageous. So when they are in the midts of it, they succumb to it. It’s the same way the hypnosis entertainer can get audience members to cluck like a chicken while on stage. They are there to participate so they willingly succumb to suggestion. Hypnosis does not work on those who are not willing.

      But let’s for a moment just put aside their physical actions and listen to their words. They go on and on about how big “their” movement is, how many viewers they have world wide. How THEY impart the annonting and not the spirit itself. Where is the humility? Where is the glorification of God? All I see is self edification and attention getting. Most importantly where is the gospel in all of this, as you roll around howling like a dog?

  12. O.K. …it appears it’s time for us to have a bit of a quick LOGIC analysis regarding Acts 2.

    Who ‘created’ drunkeness, …God or Satan through the Fallen Ones? Along with all other substance abuse to ‘independently’ open up our spiritual perceptions outside of God’s personal influence.
    I think we would/should agree Satan, yes. Considering God is against it and defines it as debauchery.

    Why would the HOLY Spirit condone or ‘copy’ a counterfeit satanic activity for His children to easily misunderstand and abuse?

    A predominant fruit of the Spirit is TEMPERANCE (self control)
    Why would a HOLY God allow a dropping of HIS standard temperance wise into a less than level headed activity as allegedly being ‘drunk’ in the Holy Spirit?

    Additionally, scripture only describes them speaking with new tongues in Acts 2. (if you actually read the chapter) It was only THIS that they were mistaken for being drunk for. It doesn’t say anything about them acting like drunken fools. Peter then went further after that accusation, to preach and teach to the crowd. Do you really think that such a crowd would actually listen to what appeared to be a giggling, staggering, drunken, crowd pleasing ‘alcoholic’ if he and the rest apostles etc were actually behaving like it.

    The whole ‘drunk in the holy spirit’ heresy is unscriptural poetic license from the likes of Kenneth Hagin, Rodney Howard Browne and all their other protege’s.
    Also, have another look at 1 Cortinthians 14:23. It was once again only the speaking in tongues part that could be interpreted by others as “being out of their minds.”

    This is also why Paul further elaborated ORDERLY worship and behaviour in the congregations.
    Nothing about this being ‘drunk in the holy spirit’ nonsense…

    • Bruce – TA/UCD,
      That was good Bruce, nothing like the truth of the word to drive home a point.

  13. Galatians 5:16-26 (Why “joy?” … What is joy??)

    This I say then,
    Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

    For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh
    – and these are contrary the one to the other
    – so that ye cannot do the things that ye would
    – But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

    Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these
    – Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry,
    – witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions,
    – heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings,
    and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past
    that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

    But the fruit of the Spirit is love
    joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance
    – against such there is no law.
    – And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

    If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    – Let us not be desirous of vain glory,
    – provoking one another, envying one another.

    And what is “joy unspeakable and full of glory”
    – 2 Peter 1

    “Let the Glory of the LORD — Rise among us!”

  14. Bit of trivia…Humphrey Bogart’s parents, Deforest Bogart, a surgeon, and Maud Humphrey Bogart, an illustrator were secretly addicted to opium.
    As well as Bela Lugosi of Dracula fame. Bela Lugosi was a regular at Opium-Dens. Even our very own Ben Franklin used opium.

  15. no need for frothing

    but according to romans some groans would be good hehe 🙂

    whatever happens, just make sure you only “roll on the floor” laughing at a Hollywood comedy – at church you should stay absolutely still. some repentant whimpering perhaps. you gotta look good. if you laugh, it should only be because your intellect found someone’s comment or action to be funny. be especially careful of dancing like david, coz i like to frown upon anything out of the ordinary.. give a whoop only when you’re at the grand canyon, the football game or in your private time with your wife. coz you are much more connected to these mediums than to your spirit.

    whatever you do, understand that our spiritual aspect is something we westerners will just never understand and is best left to the voodoo practitioners in the lesser countries, or the witches who are hexing your church. the supernatural is just not logical old chap. its a once in a lifetime kind of strange, out-there thing.

    and continue holding up that great anglo/western trait of emotional connectedness.

    whatever happens, be sure to understand that the gifts got instantly sucked away with that last apostle. even though paul instructed believers about them.

    ofcourse laying hands is just a nice symbolic act – ignore Rom1:11

    most of all, affirm God only by your intellect. the term spirit (and holy spirit for that matter) is just like a nice, abstract, allegorical picture. never felt it.

    just like the streams from your belly. its not your actual belly. its an abstract, intellectual thing. like poetry class. no real healing or moment of healing. just nice and calm kinda.

    john the baptist’s kick was more like a theological kick rather than a physical reaction. elizabeth received a telegram. no actual feelings. or physical movements.

    the words nonsense and poo-poo should be used alot.

    but enough of the (pauline) sarcasm. if you have ever been moved by an inspiration to share a word or direction to someone (perhaps while leading worship; and feeling great compassion), and yet are content to deny the operation of the gifts to others, i would encourage you to take a long, hard look. then say you are happy for believers, to go thru these upcoming times and for the provocation to jealousy of sign-believing Jacob to be left without this aid – The Helper, The Paraclete, The Deposit, The Third Person of The Trinity and the only one who is here with us NOW 🙂

    – just so we all clear: i believe we are all looking up and that He and His times are our priority – Hallelujah! (oops sorry. too emotional 😉
