5 Websites To Help Educate About The Horrors of The Holocaust

https://www.pri.org/stories/2021-01-27/5-websites-help-educate-about-horrors-holocaust

Information about the Holocaust may be easy to find online, but the best sites offer artifacts and authentic accounts from people who survived the experience, a Holocaust scholar argues.

Whenever there’s an analysis or discussion about how much people know about the Holocaust, the focus is often on what they don’t know.

For instance, a 2018 survey of 1,350 people age 18 and older found that 11% of US adults and 22% of millennials had not heard of — or were not sure if they had heard of — the Holocaust.

Almost half of US adults — 45%  — and millennials — 49% — could not name one concentration camp or ghetto that was established in Europe during the Holocaust, the survey found.

The survey also showed how there’s an overwhelming lack of personal connections to the Holocaust. Most Americans — 80% — had never visited a Holocaust museum and two-thirds — 66% — did not know, or know of, a Holocaust survivor. A significant majority of American adults believed that fewer people care about the Holocaust today than before.

As troublesome as these statistics may be in terms of what they show about how little people know about the Holocaust, there’s another aspect to Holocaust knowledge that often goes overlooked.

And that is, at a time when the Holocaust has “taken on a virtual dimension” and images from the horrific era are prevalent online, there is now a risk of what author Gavriel Rosenberg refers to as the “normalization” of the Nazi past in contemporary culture.

Desensitization

As the number of Holocaust survivors continues to dwindle, today’s students may be more apt to find a Hitler meme online before they discover testimonies of Holocaust survivors.

Rosenberg argues that this normalization of the Holocaust will downplay its horrific nature. In some cases, people have seemingly taken to celebrating the Holocaust. For instance, at the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol, one participant wore a “Camp Auschwitz” hoodie — a macabre acknowledgment of the most infamous of the Nazi concentration and death camps.

At a December 2020 protest in Washington, DC, against the election of then-President-elect Joe Biden, a member of the Proud Boys — a pro-Trump organization designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center — wore a shirt emblazoned with “6MWE.” The slogan stands for “6 million wasn’t enough,” in reference to the 6 million Jews who were killed in the Holocaust.

Making history accessible

Since the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the globe in early 2020, teachers have adapted instruction to make use of existing and emerging technologies. In line with the purpose of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Jan. 27, digital tools are offering educators new innovative ways to engage with Holocaust history

The internet has made survivor testimonies easily accessible. Social media platforms have made learning about the Holocaust easier for younger people.

A popular Instagram account appeared in 2019 that features excerpts from the journal of Eva Heyman, a 14-year-old girl from Poland who was murdered in a death camp.

In recent years, virtual reality been used as a tool for Holocaust education and memorialization. For instance, the University of Southern California’s USC Shoah Foundation has launched a project to develop interactive holograms of Holocaust survivors. The first time the exhibit was displayed publicly was at The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in 2015.

Criticisms from scholars

However, some scholars challenge the use of virtual reality when it comes to the Holocaust. One concern is the risk that people who go through a virtual reality simulation will incorrectly feel that they now know what the historical event itself was like, thereby trivializing it.

I myself am leading an interdisciplinary team at Rowan University in New Jersey to develop a virtual reality teaching tool about the Warsaw Ghetto, the largest ghetto established by the Nazis during the Holocaust — holding more than 400,000 Jews within an area of 1.3 square miles, with an average of 7.2 persons per room.

This project, still in its pilot stage, uses primary-source documents and photographs from the Oneg Shabbat Archive to recreate spaces within the ghetto. Users will be able to explore re-created spaces, examine primary sources, ask questions about photographs and explore a variety of themes.

To better develop The Warsaw Ghetto Teaching and Learning Project, and as author of a chapter in a forthcoming book, “Teaching and Learning Through the Holocaust,” I have examined many digital tools that can be used to teach about the Holocaust, especially in middle and high schools.

Here are five websites that I consider to be the most interesting.

1. The life of Bebe Epstein

This first foray into digital education from YIVO, The Institute for Jewish Research, tells the life story of one young girl, who was born in Vilna, Poland, from before the Holocaust through her immigration to the United States. A staggering amount of information can be found in this digital tool, which consists of 10 self-guided “chapters” containing the story of Bebe Epstein, artifacts and maps.

2. ‘History unfolded’: US newspapers and the Holocaust

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has a number of excellent online exhibits that can be used for teaching and learning, but “History Unfolded” fills a gap: This website aims to show what Americans knew about the Holocaust, and when they knew it, by using articles from US newspapers published during the 1930s and 1940s. Users can explore by event.

For example, they can search for Kristallnacht, a series of violent massacres carried out against Jews in Germany, often referred to as the “Night of Broken Glass.” Or they can search for information about the USS St. Louis, a ship that brought 900 Jews to Cuba and then the United States, where they were turned away. Upon being returned to Europe, almost all aboard were murdered in death camps. Visitors can also search their local newspapers from the period.

3. In Mrs. Goldberg’s Kitchen

This augmented reality experience is a part of a larger project about Lodz, Poland, during the period between World War I and World War II, created by Halina Goldberg, a musicology professor at Indiana University Bloomington. This interactive exhibit allows users to explore space in the Jewish Quarter of prewar Lodz, understanding what daily life was like for so many Jews before they were displaced and murdered during the Holocaust.

4. Anne Frank House: The Secret Annex

Anne Frank’s diary is one of the best-known primary sources to have survived the Holocaust. The annex where Anne and her family hid during the war still exists in the Netherlands and is a popular site for tourists. For those who are unable to visit the site — and for everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic — the augmented-reality site created by the Anne Frank Museum is an impressive alternative. Users are able to explore the space, examine documents and look at photos.

5. Virtual Tour of the Auschwitz Memorial

Auschwitz is the best-known concentration camp built with the express purpose of murdering Jews and other victims of the Holocaust. While the memorial and museum remain closed because of COVID-19, the virtual tour presents what the memorial website describes as “authentic sites and buildings of the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp, complete with historical descriptions, dozens of witness accounts, archival documents and photographs, artworks created by the prisoners, and objects related to the history of the camp.” Each location allows users to access additional information, view primary sources, and listen to survivor testimony.

Protection That Comes From God His Hegde Around You

Job 1:10 “Have you not put a hedge of protection around him and his household and everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that his flocks and herds are spread throughout the land.”

What is this hedge?

KJV Dictionary Definition: hedge

hedge

HEDGE, n. hej. Eng. haw Properly, a thicket of thorn-bushes or other shrubs or small trees; but appropriately, such a thicket planted round a field to fence it, or in rows, to separate the parts of a garden.

The Holy Bible can figuratively and literally build a wall around us. God created the Earth with his words. He said let there be light and there was light. When we read the Bible study it learn God’s ways over the ways of the world we begin to encounter him. We are abiding in his kingdom and not leaning on our own understanding. It begins to build our faith. As we increase in knowledge we gain confidence and trust God to protect us from our enemies. God becomes a fortress and puts up protection from schemes of our enemies. God never acts on our circumstances he acts on our faith. Faith comes from hearing and heating from the word of God.

In actuality the word of God becomes a sheilld or hedge about us that the enemy can not get past. We are protected from accidents and all sorts of daily calamities.

The more we speak the word it becomes a reality more than the darkness around us it sheds light. It brings us into the Kingdom realm not of flesh but of the spirit of God.

The Lord in our obedience to his word acts accordingly. Putting Angels around us with flaming swords to do battle against our enemies.

Is Hell A Real Place?

1 Peter 2:24 = “fact,” not past tense!

(Garth D. Wiebe, Jan 2015, added additional “‘Aorist’…” paragraph May 2015)

Entire sermons have been delivered, usually by preachers in the “word of faith” movement, on a fallacy about 1 Peter 2:24 that comes from an ambiguity in the English language.

Peter did not misquote Isa 53:5, strategically changing the tense from present to past tense, as some claim. And I will prove it here without a doubt.

The verb in 1 Pet 2:24 is not spelled

ιασθε = “iasthe” = “you(plural) have been healed (Perfect passive)

The verb in 1 Pet 2:24 is spelled

ιαθητε = “iathete” = “you(plural) are healed” (Aorist passive, emphasis mine)

This matches Isaiah 53:5 in the Septuagint translation:

ιαθημεν = “iathemen” =”we are healed” (Aorist passive, emphasis mine)

The only difference between those last two words is the 2nd vs. 3rd person (“you” vs. “we”) conjugation of the verb.

This corresponds to Isaiah 53:5 in the Hebrew text:

נִרְפָּא־ לָֽנוּ׃ = “lnu -nrpha” = “he-has-been-healed (niphal, perfect) to/toward-us”

The Greek indefinite, aorist verb tense specifies state, not action, fact rather than act, what timelessly just “is” rather than something happening in time. We don’t have an explicit way of writing that verb tense in English, either with verb endings (-s, -ed, -ing, etc.) or with helper verbs (has-, will-, etc.) So we can’t translate it very easily, or at least not unambiguously. But it conveys that healing applies to us. It is a “done deal.” Just like you see that Isaiah 53:5 says in the Hebrew (which also makes for awkward English).

“Aorist” was the ancient Greeks’ definition for the verb tense, and not a modern scholar’s definition (see LSJ “ἀόριστος” definition II.3.). The word “aorist” is from Greek “α-οριστος” = “a-oristos,” where “a” = “without,” and “oristos” = “defined boundary.” Strong’s G3724 (“οριζω”) is the verb form used in “α-οριζω” = “a-[h]orizo.” We get the English transliteration “horizon” from this Greek word (without the “a-“). A “horizon” is a fixed boundary that can be viewed a reference point. “A-orist” has no reference point. It is indefinite.

If I were to say “I play the piano,” then according to the rules of English grammar, that would be a simple present tense. But if I tell you “I play the piano” while sitting at the computer typing at a computer keyboard, you would implicitly understand it as aorist, that “I am a piano player,” as a matter of fact, not action on a time line. See this post for more detailed discussion of this.

Many translators use the English present perfect (“have been ___-ed”) or past tense (“were ___-ed”), because that conveys the sense of something having been accomplished. And although it is true that the price for healing was paid, completed in time, in an event that occurred, past tense, 2000 years ago, that’s not what either Isa 53:5 or 1 Pet 2:24 actually recite. Both recite the fact of it as it applies to us, which is timeless.

Note that the Greek Septuagint (LXX), which was the Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures in use in Biblical times, uses the same aorist tense. This proves that it cannot be translated as “past tense” or “perfect tense,” because Isaiah 53 was a prophecy that was yet to be fulfilled at the time the prophecy was written! The tense of the Greek Septuagint (LXX) Old Testament matches the tense of the Greek New Testament! However you render it in the New Testament Greek you would need to render the same way in an Old Testament Greek translation. The verb tense in Isaiah certainly can’t be “past tense”!

Hebrew has no “aorist” tense, either. But notice how it is expressed. The Hebrew “נִרְפָּא־” = “nrpha” is perfect tense, 3rd person singular (“he-has-been-healed”), combined with “לָֽנוּ” = “lnu” = “to/toward-us,” which is 1st person plural. Since the Hebrew combines 3rd person singular (“he,” as in Jesus) with 1st person plural (“we,” as in us), it is a timeless proposition, when the prophecy was made by Isaiah. At the time of Isaiah, Jesus “has been healed” (i.e. it has been accomplished) as applying to “us,” where “us” would be the audience reading the book of Isaiah, hundreds of years before the time of the cross! So, you see that the Hebrew shows the same sense of accomplishment as 1 Pet 2:24.

In Matt 8:17, translations often read, referring to the fulfillment of Isaiah 53:4 (one verse before verse 5),

“he took our infirmities and bore our sicknesses.”

But this was before the cross, when Jesus was walking around healing the sick during his earthly ministry, not yet having atoned for sicknesses. How can this be?

It is the same issue. It is not past tense.

“ελαβεν” = “elaben” = aorist “take”

“εβαστασεν” = “ebastasen” = aorist “bear”

Therefore, it is more appropriate to translate Matt 8:17

“he takes our infirmities and bears our sicknesses”

In other words, this can be paraphrased,

“by him our infirmities are taken and our sicknesses are carried

This resolves how Matt 8:17 can say that Jesus, by healing people, was fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah even before he went to the cross! Jesus believed that Isaiah’s statement about him was true and simply applied as fact, and that the future fulfillment in the atonement was certain, without any doubt in his mind!

The fact of healing just “is,” if you believe the word of God. If you don’t believe it, then it does not apply; you nullify the word of God by whatever tradition you throw in to hinder it, exempt yourself from it, and “healing” does not apply to you. You either believe and “are healed,” or don’t believe and are not.

If we can all get a hold of this, I think it will help immensely. We proclaim healing over someone, according to the truth of the word of God, and declare it to apply, 100%, fact. Period. It is not “will be healed” (English future verb tense) or “will be being healed” (English future progressive verb tense). It is not “were healed” (English past tense) or “have been healed” (English present perfect tense); the person was not previously in a “healed” state, because of ignorance or unbelief. On the timeline, they were afflicted, not “healed.” When we put healing on the timeline, we are adding a hindrance or condition to what the word of God declares as simple truth.

“Healed” is truth, which we accept by faith, and then it just applies.

Now, for the case of the commonplace teaching that says that Peter changed Isaiah 53:5 from present to past tense, on the face of it, this cannot be, either, because if 1 Peter 2:24 was supposed to be in the past tense, looking back at the cross, then Isaiah 53:5 ought to be translated in the future tense, looking forward to the cross! Yet it is not.

This is a matter of “truth,” not temporal circumstances. We declare “truth” and expect the temporal circumstances to change to line up with the Word of God.

This may seem a little complicated at first, but when you understand it, it actually simplifies things immensely. You can proclaim “healed” with integrity, without having to fuss with all of the timeline objections to your proclamation by worldly-thinking people who look with their physical (instead of spiritual) eyes at circumstances in the here-and-now, judging based on what their eyes see, instead of what the Word of God declares.

OriginOld English bēon, an irregular and defective verb, whose full conjugation derives from several originally distinct verbs. The forms am and is are from an Indo-European root shared by Latin sum and est . The forms was and were are from an Indo-European root meaning ‘remain’. The forms be and been are from an Indo-European root shared by Latin fui ‘I was’, fio ‘I become’, and Greek phuein ‘bring forth, cause to grow’. The origin of are is uncertain.

It’s not past tense like we were taught. Always dig deeper in the word. We may be misinterpreting many scriptures not understanding what they mean.

Would Have Been Nice To Celebrate His 50th Birthday…………

Today would have been Nick’s 50th birthday. He died in the VA hospital from servere neglect.
My Mom wanted him to go to his friend that was an allergy specialist. Because a mysterious rash from his medicines appeared. He said Mom “I have to follow protocol as a Veteran or I’ll have to pay all of my bills out of pocket”. He put his trust in the hospital staff there at the Veterans hospital. They failed him grossly.
My Mom requested a private autopsy, they went ahead and did their own against her request.

We weren’t able to get the autopsy on our own. Peter King’s office had to step in advocate for us. It took one year for us to get it. When we finally had the autopsy to see what took his life it was devistating. My Mom’s friend that is a hospital nurse read it for us. She said there were no times listed, which was odd because they always have them. Then she saw what was very alarming. Towards the very end narcaden was administered. This is a medicine given when someone is over dosed.

The turn of events from that day in the hospital started to make sense now. My Mom was at his bedside and held his hand as he past. Just close to 30 minutes prior she saw him laboring to breath. She ran to get his nurse and was rudely dismissed as if she she was overreacting. The nurse actually said she was crazy she wasn’t going to see him. My Mom attempted to have the doctor take a look at him he said he was under staffed and would get to him as soon as he could. As my Mom watched Nick struggle to breath she knew she had to get someone to help and frantically grabbed a nurse from another desk to come see him. It was at that point the nurse called code blue.

Normally there’s a crash cart on every floor it’s required to be there. This time it wasn’t. They had to get one from another floor it took them 19 minutes to get one. At that point he went into anflatic shock and they lost him. It was from the combination of the allergic reaction he originally had from medication and the over dose of his pain medication they gave him on an empty stomach.

I’m not sharing this to give you negative information. My Brother’s death wasn’t in vain. He was a seed planted in the ground. After losing my Dad to chemo 7 months prior to my brothers death. It made me do more on depth studies on the dangers of pharmacy the medical feild and the like. Medications took my two loved ones along with a system that is very flawed. They practice medicine and truly are do the best with what they know to do. But my Bible says healing through casting out devil’s and laying on hands is what makes people recover.

As much as many of you are putting your trust in this medical feild like my Dad and Brother did you aren’t saving your lives you’re losing them.

Please let my families testimonies be a warning to you.

God So Loved The World

Most know this scripture:

John 3:16

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

When Tim Tebow had black stripes under his eyes with 3:16. The verse gained popularity amoungst the unbelievers. Many looked up this verse. It’s a scripture of hope for us all. But, the sad reality many will perish for lack of knowledge not understanding the true meaning of it.

The word believe means to have confidence in or put trust in. In today’s day and age are we seeing much trust with this covid disease? Or circumstances with all of the natural calamities happening?

Could this lack of believing be because there isn’t a conversion described in the scripture:

John 3:3

Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Being born again means you are filled with the Holy Spirit. Once this happens you become a true believer and have the confidence you need in God to not live in fear of facing challenges of the day.

A Thousand Years Is As A Thousand Days

Update doesn’t seem he was arrested 🤔 He was visible today for the swearing in. Will he be arrested??

You must watch this video first!

Revelation 20:7-8
7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

The beast will be in prison. On November 28th Obama was arrested! But he will be out in a thousand days just like the scripture says.

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Do the math one thousand days is close to 3 1/2 years. We will have more time for the end time harvest!! Go ye preach the gospel!!

This was such exciting news for me when my friend shared the video of obama’s arrest.

Thy Faith Saved Thee Go In Peace

https://youtu.be/ii5wfxCgeK4

37 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment,

38 And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

39 Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.

40 And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he saith, Master, say on.

41 There was a certain creditor which had two debtors: the one owed five hundred pence, and the other fifty.

42 And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most?

43 Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hast rightly judged.

44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head.

45 Thou gavest me no kiss: but this woman since the time I came in hath not ceased to kiss my feet.

46 My head with oil thou didst not anoint: but this woman hath anointed my feet with ointment.

47 Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.

48 And he said unto her, Thy sins are forgiven.

49 And they that sat at meat with him began to say within themselves, Who is this that forgiveth sins also?

50 And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.

She wept at Yeshua’s/ Jesus feet the shame of her sin she couldn’t even look up at him. Her tears in his presence were her confession. She sought him found him. Those that seek him shall find him. Washing ones feet is away of honoring them. Being grateful for his journey she cleansed and anointed his feet with oil. She was able to come to him as any sinner could. It was her faith in finding him.

“Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”
Psalms 119:2

The Centurion Intercessor





Luke 7

7 Now when he had ended all his sayings in the audience of the people, he entered into Capernaum.

And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear unto him, was sick, and ready to die.

And when he heard of Jesus, he sent unto him the elders of the Jews, beseeching him that he would come and heal his servant.

And when they came to Jesus, they besought him instantly, saying, That he was worthy for whom he should do this:

For he loveth our nation, and he hath built us a synagogue.

Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying unto him, Lord, trouble not thyself: for I am not worthy that thou shouldest enter under my roof:

Wherefore neither thought I myself worthy to come unto thee: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.

For I also am a man set under authority, having under me soldiers, and I say unto one, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.

When Jesus heard these things, he marvelled at him, and turned him about, and said unto the people that followed him, I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

10 And they that were sent, returning to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

The Centurion had great faith he stood in the gap for his servant. He was a man in position of authority and knew how to use it. He even had the boldness to go directly to Yeshua/Jesus to ask him to heal his servant even tho he never met him face to face. It’s what we call standing in gap. There was no way the ill servant could go to Yeshua so his master the one who had lordship over him sent word in his place. The Centurions confidence was in the the power of God and in who he knew he was to direct that power in the right direction. He had faith in healing and knew accoding to the word it only had to be sent.

Psalm 107:20

20 He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

All the Lord had to do was send the word. Basically he saw there was faith hope and a will. The faith came from relationship. The Centurion had to know who Yeshua was to know he had the power to heal. He also had favor as he had sown into the kingdom of God by building synagogues. The elder Jews went to te Lord for him. As the Lord had come towards the Centurion’s home he had friends meet him outside saying he’s not worthy for him to even enter his home just send the word we will receive it in our home. The Lord did and marveked at his faith. https://youtu.be/HGWzo5EdQ0w

Are Doctors Hypocrites? They Take An Hyporcratic Oath 🤔

This is in no way to pass judgement on anyone in the medical feild. It’s sharing facts most of us were unaware of. Including me. Based on these facts I hope you’ll draw your own conclusions on what to do after reading this. Some of you might turn to prayer and nutrition like the Bible tells us to do.

Medical Definition of

Hippocratic Oath

Hippocratic Oath: One of the oldest binding documents in history, the Oath written by Hippocrates is still held sacred by physicians: to treat the ill to the best of one’s ability, to preserve a patient’s privacy, to teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and so on.

There are many versions of the Hippocratic Oath. We here present two versions. First, the “classic” version (or more precisely, one translation of the original oath). And then, following it, is presented one of the fine “modern” versions of the Hippocratic Oath.


Classic Version of the Hippocratic Oath

I swear by Apollo Physician and Asclepius and Hygieia and Panaceia and all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will fulfil according to my ability and judgment this oath and this covenant:null

To hold him who has taught me this art as equal to my parents and to live my life in partnership with him, and if he is in need of money to give him a share of mine, and to regard his offspring as equal to my brothers in male lineage and to teach them this art – if they desire to learn it – without fee and covenant; to give a share of precepts and oral instruction and all the other learning to my sons and to the sons of him who has instructed me and to pupils who have signed the covenant and have taken an oath according to the medical law, but no one else.

The main thing I’d like you to pay very close attention to. They teach secrets of medicine. My Bible says anything hidden in darkness shall be revealed by the light.

They according to their oath call on no one but their gods. That means they don’t pray to the highest God although you would.

Some doctors may be true Christians and would not make an oath like this. But this system still is what it is using pharmeikia doing surgeries. It takes away from the word that those that believer cast out devil’s lay hands on sick and they shall recover.

Mark 16:15-20

15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;

18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

In this medical feild they perform human sacrifices aborting babies. They drug the Saints.

Revelation 18

23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

pharmacy (n.)

late 14c., farmacie, “a medicine that rids the body of an excess of humors (except blood);” also “treatment with medicine; theory of treatment with medicine,” from Old French farmacie “a purgative” (13c.) and directly from Medieval Latin pharmacia, from Greek pharmakeia “a healing or harmful medicine, a healing or poisonous herb; a drug, poisonous potion; magic (potion), dye, raw material for physical or chemical processing,” from pharmakeus (fem. pharmakis) “a preparer of drugs, a poisoner, a sorcerer” from pharmakon “a drug, a poison, philter, charm, spell, enchantment.” Beekes writes that the original meaning cannot be clearly established, and “The word is clearly Pre-Greek.” The ph- was restored 16c. in French, 17c. in English (see ph).https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?guci=2.2.0.0.2.2.0.0&client=ca-pub-7093273770345366&output=html&h=343&slotname=4000736339&adk=759508917&adf=446267034&pi=t.ma~as.4000736339&w=412&lmt=1606401850&rafmt=1&armr=1&psa=1&format=412×343&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.etymonline.com%2Fword%2Fpharmacy&flash=0&fwr=1&rs=1&rh=250&rw=300&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&sfro=1&wgl=1&tt_state=W3siaXNzdWVyT3JpZ2luIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9hZHNlcnZpY2UuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbSIsInN0YXRlIjowfSx7Imlzc3Vlck9yaWdpbiI6Imh0dHBzOi8vYXR0ZXN0YXRpb24uYW5kcm9pZC5jb20iLCJzdGF0ZSI6MH1d&dt=1606401850483&bpp=29&bdt=502&idt=127&shv=r20201112&cbv=r20190131&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D66944a76b318aade-22e00d1918c50036%3AT%3D1606401694%3ART%3D1606401694%3AS%3DALNI_MbOLfz4rMwcWgpoKGsOzfs-xIpO_A&correlator=7326793388460&frm=20&pv=2&ga_vid=873525839.1606401672&ga_sid=1606401851&ga_hid=1700410505&ga_fc=0&iag=0&icsg=34818&dssz=18&mdo=0&mso=0&u_tz=-300&u_his=2&u_java=0&u_h=892&u_w=412&u_ah=892&u_aw=412&u_cd=24&u_nplug=0&u_nmime=0&adx=0&ady=922&biw=412&bih=756&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=21066973&oid=3&pvsid=4175430429395531&pem=551&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F&rx=0&eae=0&fc=900&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C412%2C0%2C412%2C756%2C412%2C756&vis=1&rsz=o%7C%7CEebr%7C&abl=CS&pfx=0&fu=8320&bc=31&ifi=1&uci=a!1&btvi=1&fsb=1&xpc=ngTBzruzIS&p=https%3A//www.etymonline.com&dtd=200

Meaning “the use or administration of drugs” is from c. 1400; the sense of “art or practice of preparing, preserving, and compounding medicines and dispensing them according to prescriptions” is from 1650s; that of “place where drugs are prepared and dispensed” is recorded by 1833.

Here’s an article explaining more in depth how satanic this truly is. https://www.pathwaytopeace.net/index.php/blogs-and-articles/pharmakeia-deception

You’ve made doctors your heros. Saying they are saving people’s lives. No one but God should have credit for lives saved. Your prayers for God to use the doctor’s hands was where you out your faith. Should we have prayed Lord use the elders hands to lay hands on the sick instead?

Many challenge me about Luke being a physician. Luke was he never took this hyporcratic oath and he used nutrition instead of pharmacy.

I hope I’m causing you to think deeply about this? The doctors reading this may thinking about changing over to be prayer and nutritional counselors.
