From my internet radio broadcast on 11.02.15 – Colby Braden, devout follower of Murray up until a few years ago gives an amazing testimony of deliverance and shares incredible insight into the nature of the Chapel’s deception.
We put this in-depth expose together to help liberate Chapel students from the snare of false religion… please listen and share!
An .mp3 version of the broadcast is available at the following link…
“All the great doctrines of the Christian faith were known, believed, cherished, and recorded in the stars from the earliest generations of our race, proving that God has spoken to man, and verily given him a revelation of truths and hopes precisely as written in our Scriptures, and so fondly cherished by all Christian believers” – Joseph Seiss
By that Mr. Seiss is referring to what we commonly know as the Zodiac signs, the constellations that make up the wheel of zoo animals, the circus side show for demonic freaks. You know, where we get our daily horoscope.
I’m Aries by the way. My sign according to the Gospel in the Stars somehow denotes the Crowned Lamb. I’m feeling really special right about now.
Before we get started, lets see how the new agers understand the wonderful sign of Aries…
“Every beginner in astrology knows that the conventional astrological symbol for this sign is exactly the same as the letter Upsilon in the Greek alphabet. This correspondence, moreover, leads to much else, because the Ram, or Aries, is the Lamb in Gnostic Christianity; and we shall find… that the Hebrew interpretation of this ogdoad (group of 8) of initials gives us a plain intimation that the Founder of the Rosicrucian Order is none other than this same Lamb, and it even names ‘Lamb’ by the Hebrew equivalent to one arrangement of his initials…” (The True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order, p. 40)
Consequently the Count Saint de Germain founded this order and he never dies, he’s coming to liberate humanity they say…
Ah, so the Gospel in the Stars that Murray promotes exalts and to the beast and his system? Oops I didn’t mean to bring that up, let’s put that on the shelf for later!
Didn’t mean to spoil this for you stargazers out there, let’s start again. So some would have us to believe that all sorts of wonderful biblical knowledge is locked away in pagan zodiac signs…
Really? I guess we can throw our bible away and take up astrology. But were all the great doctrines of the bible originally encoded in the stars only later to become lost? Is the pagan zodiac really just a corruption of this pure protoevangelium?
Who could ever help us crack this code and reverse engineer the pagan zodiac? Murray has some suggestions on his booklist…
The Gospel of the Stars, far from being the protoevangelium is no evangelium but rather another evangelium and therefore accursed.
“But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!” – Galatians 1:8 NASB
I would like to submit to you that the Gospel in the Stars is very contrary to the gospel. I acknowledge that though many well meaning people have promoted this teaching it is still nonetheless heretical and essentially antichrist.
This notion was introduced into Christendom in 1862 in a book called, Mazzaroth: or, the Constellations by a woman named Frances Rolleston. E.W. Bullinger a was a very close associate.
The basic premise is that the story of redemption was given to Adam by God. Adam and progeny encoded this story with the constellation signs. Eventually this wisdom devolved into the pagan zodiac and said wisdom became all but lost, until 1862 that is…
According to Murray and those teaching this error, the following verse is talking about the secret hidden biblical knowledge that can be extracted from the pagan zodiac…
(Psa 19:1) To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
(Psa 19:2) Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
(Psa 19:3) There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Now we will need the aid of deft religious experts to help us decrypt the pagan zodiac… where will we turn?
Really this passage is about the glory of the heavenlies that God created in and of themselves. It is not making any reference to secret knowledge hidden in the pagan zodiac.
So that is the basic assertion – the story of redemption was originally given to Adam, who then because paper was lacking encoded this information within the stars which later became paganized. The reality is the pagan zodiac was always pagan and godless and never had a hint of truth in it…
E.W. Bullinger, God rest his Anglican soul, embellished Rolleston’s teaching with a book of his own to help popularize this whopper. Coincidentally, theologians of the 19th century must have really been bored – they didn’t have T.V. so they had to invent their own religious fantasies.
It must have tickled Murray’s heretical sensibilities to no end when he discovered the Gospel in the Stars. I used to own the book by E. Raymond Capt. that Murray endorses…
Where Did the Zodiac Constellation Signs Originate?
The truth is the Zodiac is explicitly condemned by the bible. It is at the heart of Babylonian mystery religion and sun worship.
It was invented at the tower of Babel and was part of the initial mystery religion. The tower of Babel itself was an observatory and was created to help facilitate this system of false worship.
When God scattered the people at Babel the people took this religion with them and started new civilizations based on the same general outline – like Egypt for instance.
The Israelites, too, were enamored with Babylonian mystery religion due to the influence of surrounding cultures…
“This is that Moses…to whom our fathers would not obey, but thrust him from them, and IN THEIR HEARTS TURNED BACK AGAIN INTO EGYPT… And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifices unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the HOST OF HEAVEN: as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to Me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.” – Acts 7:37-43
The system of false worship initiated at the tower of Babel is the reason why all the curses of destruction pronounced in Deuteronomy came upon the Jews during the Babylonian captivity.
It reeks of ‘666’. In fact the number ‘666’ derives directly from sun worship and the zodiac. The sun passed through each house of the zodiac per day; each house has 3 rooms for a total of 36 rooms – this is where the magical square of the sun comes from and where we get the number ‘666’.
(Zep 1:4) I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
(Zep 1:5) And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;
So the Israelites were punished for worshipping God and Baal. This is the direction Murray and others are leading people by advocating the “Gospel in the Stars” which is no more biblical than the moon being made of Swiss cheese.
The wheel of zoo animals IS the host of heaven… there’s a gospel in there somewhere? Sure there is. Fact is these characters in the zodiac represent demon gods. And you want to reconcile this idolatry with the story of redemption?
(Deu 5:7) Thou shalt have none other gods before me.
(Deu 5:8) Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
(Deu 5:9) Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
But you say, “it preaches real good, brother Tim, real good…” – indeed it does, my friend, indeed it does. Like hot pig slop in a bucket. And we’re about to have a real hog-slopping good time.
(Deu 4:19) And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
This is what the pagans and the Israelites did…
And that is what the zodiac is – a wheel of zoo animals, a system of sun based false worship… a circus side show for demonic freaks…but hey, I got an idea, let’s Christianize it – because Lord knows, if you take any demonic swill you can find and dress it up in Christian terminology Lord knows what kind of boon you’ll strike.
That’s what Rolleston, Seiss, Murray, Capt, Bullinger and those like them promoted…
A Christianized version of pagan idolatry. Kind of looks like something a Romanist would do. It origins were in hell – not some mythical protoevangelion. You know what they say about putting lipstick on a pig?
The pagan zodiac is the pig… the Gospel in the Stars is the lipstick – have fun with that and let me know how it works out for you.
The Chapel teaches that there were two distinct creations of man. The 6th day creation, or the “ethnos” and the 8th day “Adam” of who Christ and the Hebrews were to come…
One thing we really need to grasp is that this interpretation of the bible IS inherently wrong, even racist as it implies the majority of humanity didn’t come Adam and Eve.
Further, the teaching itself comes from racist origins and leads to racist conclusions. Not coincidentally, this notion of a 6th and 8th day creation can be found in the Kabbalah and in the writings of Helena Blavatsky, famed theosophist…
There are other curious similarities between Babylonian Kabalistic mystery religion (a.k.a. Theosophy) and what the Chapel teaches such as the ineffable magical name of God ‘YHVH’.
But back to the “two Adams” teaching, it is a significant contributor to the Christian Identity movement. Christian Identity falls under the umbrella of Christian Dominionism. It is beast religion and satanic to the bone and is under the spiritual control of the Roman whore.
Christian Identity adherent gravitate towards Murray like moths to a flame on account of teachings like this…
We’ll find this particular doctrine expounded in his Genesis series. There’s so many lies in that one set of tapes – it baffles the mind. According to this position God created mankind in general on the 6th day, the indigenous races. Then on the 8th day God created Adam, where fairer skinned folk come in. This is British Israelism 101.
Pandora’s Box opens up from here… how did the races survive the flood? Was the flood global or local? These are themes that Murray addresses over and over. Secretly Murray taught a local flood but to risk alienating people he also taught that Noah took the different races on the ark.
God says take two of each flesh, he reasons that the Kenites and other races were included in this commandment.
But what does the bible teach? Does it teach that the races were created on the 6th day and that on the 8th day God created the fairer skinned people?
How did Paul the Apostle understand this issue? Did he believe in two separate creations of man like Murray teaches?
“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;” – Acts 17:26
The answer is no. He believed that all men descended from Adam and Eve.
“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.” – Genesis 3:20
So who are you going to believe? Murray twisted and distorted the whole of scripture to fit his man-made system of religion. If you are one his student’s and you claim to have a love of the truth then it’s time for you to begin to radically question and reject almost everything this man has taught… your soul depends on it.
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” – Revelation 13:3
This is a hard one for me personally. The Chapel teaches that the deadly wound happens to NWO in the future to one of the heads of the beast system. Satan is then cast out of heaven and comes as Antichrist to heal the wound. There are many reasons why that interpretation is wrong.
Satan being cast out of heaven does however seems to correspond with the deadly wound.
For me personally this wound could have taken place when Jesus Christ defeated death on the cross. The previous Satanic world system would have appeared vanquished because of this. Still another strong possibility could be the fall of pagan Rome…
Seventh Day Adventists will commonly teach that the deadly wound happened in 1797 when Napoleon disbanded the papacy. There are also reasons why that fails.
I am an unsettled on this issue – what do you think the beast’s deadly wound refers to?
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” – 2nd Thessalonians 2:3
One of the things you will hear the Chapel commonly teach is that the “son of perdition” spoken of in John and 2nd Thessalonians both refer to the same futuristic Antichrist.
There is a lot of deception to unpack in this teaching by the Chapel.
The truth is the “son of perdition” in John and in Thessalonians refer to two different things.
In the first instance in John, the term “son of perdition” points to Judas Iscariot. In the second, “son of perdition” refers to an antichrist power that has already been revealed… the papal dynasty. This was spoken of in Daniel and Paul is borrowing from prophecy regarding the “little-horn” in a New Testament light:
“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” – Daniel 7:8
False teachers are quick to ignore scriptural context – it gets in the way doesn’t it? Let’s look at a passage from John 17…
“While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.” – John 17:12
The whole chapter Jesus is referring to the disciples whom Judas was counted among. The scripture being fulfilled is Psalm 109…
Why would Jesus stop on the dime and start talking about Murray’s mythical futuristic antichrist?
This is a common maneuver by the Chapel, to give words and phrases equivalent meaning across different books even when context requires otherwise. It’s kind of like algebra for heretics, but let me give you a clue if you are a genuine truth-seeker…
One word or phrase used in one part of the bible can have a completely different referent in another.
Commonly Murray will say that Judas genuinely “repented” of his sin of betraying Christ because he returned the money and that the Kenite power hierarchy in Jerusalem had him killed.
But Judas repentance in the Greek is not “metanoia” but “metamelomai” – in other words he was mentally regretful, filled with grief and anguish at himself and not truly repentant – this is evidenced by the consequent suicide.
Judas Iscariot is in hell.
The Papal Dynasty has been here waging war against the saints and casting the truth to the ground for very long time… and destroying God’s holy people.
Quit making excuses for an evil man whose heart was full of wickedness, greed and betrayal who is now in hell – you miss the gravity of Judas sin and the reality of the evil that took place.
Quit looking for a mythical futuristic superman Antichrist who will never come when the true prophetic fulfillment of scripture is in your midst right now destroying God’s people to an extraordinary degree and will continue until the end of the age.
It has been over 8 months since I have even looked at this blog. In many respects it is a closed case. I have truly said all that needs to be said in order for someone that truly wants deliverance from error to be saved.
I have shared my testimony of how the Lord Jesus Christ delivered from one deception and sin after another and given every detail… but I feel there is more that needs to be said because we are getting into some of the most impenetrable areas of falsehood that the devils ever invented and it affects us all.
My earnest desire is that my readers who are tangled up in this mire of false religion will break free.
I want to say this, it has been almost twelve years since I first started to see the light of freedom in Jesus Christ from this cult and to this day I still battle the demon of FUTURISM. This is the ultimate poison that the Chapel instills and it is the spiritual essence of the beast, it is a many-headed Hydra that pulls its victims into the depths.
Futurism was created by Jesuits in the 16th century in order to obscure the reality that the dynasty of the papacy was the prophetic Antichrist. The Reformers knew this. Through futurism the world is either pulled into ecumenism or prophetic fantasy religion that strengthens the hand of Rome through blindness.
The center-piece of Chapel teaching is this fantastical notion that Satan will descend from the Heavens in the future as the Antichrist at the 6th trumpet with god-like powers of persuasion and deception. The structure of this lie was given theological strength by the intellectual shock troops of the beast… the Jesuits, a bloody and hellish corps of devils.
This doctrine of futurism was later “Protestantized” by the dispensationalists of whom the Chapel is a pure and unadulterated expression.
It is the height of fantasy religion and if you are caught up in it you are being ROBBED. The Antichrist as you understand him will never come – the man of sin has already been revealed.
What the Lord brought to my attention in my time away is that I too in much of my writing was still swayed by Rome’s poison that was delivered to me by the Chapel even after all this time and conscientious effort to break free.
I will be updating the blog to reflect these changes and my pitched war and repudiation of Jesuit futurism which the Chapel is a 100% devotee. They are an unwitting tool of the beast. I want you to see these things.
The war you are waiting for is already here.
You see the false doctrine of futurism puts adherents at peace with the biblical Antichrist by pointing their attention to a fictional comic book character that will never come… and while the Christians have their heads turned the Roman beast continues to devour the world.
There are two passages in the bible that dumbfounds false teachers near and far…
“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation…“- 2nd Peter 1:20
“As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction” – 2nd Peter 3:16
Has anyone put forth with success more private interpretations and religious speculation as truth than Shepherd’s Chapel? You see, one of things our teacher likes to do is reinterpret the whole of scripture through the lens of his IDOL DOCTRINE the SERPENT SEED and it’s attendant KENITE deception. He knows no bounds to bending and twisting the text to make it fit his precious lies.
Take for instance where he tells us that the Greek word expatao or beguiled in Corinthians means to wholly seduce, as in both sexually and spiritually.
“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2nd Corinthians 11:2-3
“You will remember also that, uh… Paul, in second Corinthians chapter eleven verses two and three stated, “I wanna present you all as chaste virgins to Christ,” that is to say our husband, when he returns, “not as Eve who was beguiled by that serpent.” The word beguiled in the Greek being, “Expattio” which has only one meaning, and that is to be wholly seduced, uh. Documentation? Prove me out. A Strong’s concordance, the Greek word 1818, beguiled as it is used in second Corinthians chapter 11.” – Arnold Murray, tape #438 Mark of the Beast
For Murray this text is about how Satan sexually seduced Eve in the Garden. At the same time he is suggesting that the antichrist will do to the church during the tribulation what Satan did to Eve in the garden. How that works I do not know. Somehow when Christ comes back he will find the church with a corporate devil baby.
I’m being facetious but you can see what happens when you logically follow these things out. In other words, Antichirst (or Satan according to Murray) is going to have sex with the church spiritually. OK, sure.
Expatao has absolutely nothing to do with being seduced sexually. The word simply means to be deceived and that is what happened to Eve – she allowed the serpent to deceive her through his subtlety into disobeying God. Sex never entered the picture – but like I said before, carnal man responds to this type of sensual perverse nonsense.
DON’T BUY INTO HIS CARNAL NONSENSE!
The main reasons I bring this up is to show you how false teachers distort and pervert the text making it mean something that is an utter abomination. Eve never had sexual relations with Satan and the word expatao has nothing to do with sexual seduction and means simply to deceive.
