Beware of this bear

Proverbs 2:19 - None that go unto her return again, Neither do they attain unto the paths of life:

In the Bible there is a character who like a bear stalks the people of God from generation to generations.

When a grizzly bear smells a prey it will stalk it for miles and miles until it gets to it and consumes it. When it sees a herd it will not attack immediately, it will stay hidden until it finds the right time to attack. Due to its inability of speed over long distances it compensates with sudden surprise attack. Before it attacks it lifts itself high and shows itself as great in size, it also brings out its claws and displays it fierce teeth. But what does the killing job is the hit of its powerful paws.

My coming out of the Catholic Church happened when I took note of this character that stalked the people of God and also is in control of mankind in various religions in various forms. This one female character takes form of various goddesses throughout ages and becomes the cause of the anger of God to consume His people. However much people are blessed in the Lord, when they are attached to this woman it will not matter to them getting totally destroyed or annihilated by God's anger but they will not leave their dedication to this goddess.

We call the Bible the Word of God it is also called the Book of Instructions for life. In Proverbs we read the Commandments (Instructions) of God is like a lamp, its law is like light and its warnings and corrections as guidelines to the way of life. That means if we do not take note of the warnings the Word of God gives we will not have life.

Today's scripture warns us about this woman who stalks God's people and causes them to have devotion to her and thus makes them to lose the promises of God and eternal life. She deceives them in various ways taking forms according to people's environment and belief. She is so shrewd that it is just not possible to know her seductive and destructive ways that are sweetly wrapped in emotions, unless one is baptized in the Holy Spirit.

In today's era she is still present in one of her most powerful forms yet, mostly among the Catholics coming as the mother of Jesus. She fools people to think she is Mary the mother of Jesus and she is here to lead them to Jesus even though her words contradict that of Jesus and the Word of God. Even though she comes as light she does not leave her old habits and desires for darkness. But all her cunningness is no match to our Omnipotent God, who exposes her to those who abide in His Word, follow His Commandments and loving His Law.

She is not Satan but the most powerful tool of Satan and in the book of Revelation she is given the name Jezebel which means 'chaste', who comes as a messenger of God but seduces His people to go against God's instructions and to do idolatry.

One simple deceit I will expose here which has a great hold and bondage on almost all Catholics. She in the name of prayer has given her disciple a set of beads called a rosary. She time and again comes in various forms to people reminding them that they should not give up the rosary and that it is the way to salvation.

If one understands prayer which is a communication to God which requires a heart to heart communication this set of prayers tells them not to think and know what they are saying but concentrate only on her. When Jesus was asked how to pray He did give a set of words and say repeat it. He gave a prayer and told them this is an example of how one should pray that is why He said pray like this.

Even though the words of this woman go against the Word of God and mock God, yet people do not realize it. The Bible says Lord Jesus is the only way to Heaven yet they believe her words that she also is the way to salvation and still do not realize she contradicts Jesus.

Jesus tells us only through Baptism in Him and in the Holy Spirit can a person enter the Kingdom of God, that by just believing but also by abiding in His Word (with the help of the Holy Spirit) only will we enter Heaven. And she on the other hand tells her people that by dedication to her and by narrating the rosary continually one will get to enter Heaven.

She calls herself the Queen of Heaven even though she is hated by God. She calls herself Mother of God even though she is His creation. People due to lack of knowledge of scriptures glorify the Mary of the Bible and confuse this character as her. God has time and again sent His messengers to warn His people of her ways but people being stubborn do not leave worshipping her.

Today's message says be aware of her, for her children will be consumed by fire and will not have the gift of life.
