The name Moloch results from a dysphemic vocalisation in the Second Temple period of a theonym based on the root mlk, “king”. There are a number of Canaanite gods with names based on this root, which became summarily associated with Moloch, including biblical Malkam (מַלְכָּם) “Great King” (KJV Milcom), which appears to refer to a god of the Ammonites, as well as Tyrian Melqart and others.
Rabbinical tradition depicted Moloch as a bronze statue heated with fire into which the victims were thrown. This has been associated with reports by Greco-Roman authors on the child sacrifices in Carthage to Baal Hammon. Archaeological excavations since the 1920s have produced evidence for child sacrifice in Carthage as well as inscriptions including the term MLK, either a theonym or a technical term associated with sacrificial rites. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus, due to the parallel mytheme of Cronus devouring his children.
Otto Eissfeldt in 1935 argued that mlk was not to be taken as a theonym at all but as a term for a type of fire sacrifice, and that *lĕmōlek “as a molk-sacrifice” had been reinterpreted as the name of a Canaanite idol following the Deuteronomic reform under Josiah (r. 640–609 BC). According to Eissfeldt, this 7th-century reform abolished the child sacrifice that had been happening.
Moloch has been used figuratively in English literature from John Milton‘s Paradise Lost (1667) to Allen Ginsberg‘s “Howl” (1955), to refer to a person or thing demanding or requiring a very costly sacrifice.

I believe that today, 29 July 2020, the argument over whether or not we should keep our current president, Donald Trump or put in a Democrat is sent directly from the enemy of our souls. Leading America is not about parties but hearts. Parties can sometimes run an experience. Read the Book of Esther and see what parties can do. There are so many blinded people today who cannot see that the enemy is planting booby-traps politically to destroy this country. A house divided will not stand. I have seen where people are enthralled with the character, personality and outside ‘features’ of those who want to run this country. I am only writing what we already know from sight, sound or experience. Well, for those who are the proverbial “awake” anyway. One party is pulling out the other party’s faults (which we all have) while going around smelling women’s hair, lying about email, getting professional sexual favors under the desk of the Office of the United States, and opening the annals (should I use that term) of homosexuality which the Word specifically speaks against. We’ve become a perverted Nation. Did you hear that even some famous people are putting babies blood or even their own in their perfumes and products? Your kids could be using them right now. I bind Moloch in Jesus name. How can someone diss our bible publicly and say that America is no longer a Christian Nation!? The devil is bold. Ahhhwhaaaaat? And still, we let it go. *Crickets. Christians don’t publicly confess that Jesus is not the only way but there are millions (or thousands) of ways to get into Heaven. Be careful who you follow. (Emotions, emotions my friend.) God doesn’t act on emotions, your flesh does. “Be ye holy” says the Lord and repenting is the ‘right’ thing to do. Holiness is righteousness, doing the right, holy and consecrated-to-God type of things. And don’t think that the Godly people in our government will allow publicly staged antics to run smoothly. Christians STILL DO exist! And let’s not forget the kicker of racism. One should not bow to the demon of racism. (Blinded by the enemy.) “They’re white!” some shout Ku Klux Klan-ism) while others shout “They’re black! Hooray! Imhotep!!!!”
Imhotep (/ɪmˈhoʊtɛp/; Ancient Egyptian: ỉỉ-m-ḥtp “the one who comes in peace”; fl. late 27th century BC) was an Egyptian chancellor to the pharaoh Djoser, probable architect of the Djoser’s step pyramid, and high priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis.
Can you imagine having leaders who believe that Jesus and satan are brothers and you will have a zillion wives when you die and ‘go to Heaven.’ Imagine that in office? As above so below. Then they wonder why they are so tired and confused half of the time. Jesus makes us free of legalism and exhaustion-ism. Christian women are not committing suicide over un-equal treatment and confusing doctrine.
The problem that we are facing now is the fact that people cannot see that God is using our current President yes, and with his odd personality. We should actually be praying for our nation AND our President. God used an ass in the Book of Numbers. He can use anything or anyone that He wants.
Num 22:28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
Num 22:29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.
Num 22:30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.
Num 22:32 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:
Num 22:33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.
You mean to tell me that Balaam didn’t realize that he was actually talking to an ass? If your ass/donkey started talking wouldn’t you shut up and jump back or something? Which one was the ass? *Selah
How can you be Christian and hate your leaders? He even mentioned his personality on tv yesterday. I don’t know if anyone else caught it but I did. I believe that he is being advised by some on fire, Holy Ghost Christians who are teaching him to have humility, to stop being the bull in the China shop so to speak. (No pun there as far as China is concerned.) READ THE BIBLE FOLKS. Most of the persons in the Bible had odd personalities. I have an odd personality! Most ministers of God do. I am a bull-type so to speak, as well. People come to me lastly because they say that they know they are going to get the truth if they come to me for help and truthfully…I am honored. Being orphaned from the age of 3 months, I had a hard life, made a lot of mistakes and I am tired of playing games with the devil and his world. I pull no punches, I just hit ’em with the Word. Yes, it makes people mad but so what? It’s the devil in them that hates the Word in me. The Father and I are One. I Am the righteousness of God. It’s who God chooses to do His work. Much to the devil’s chagrin, after his blunder in Heaven where he turned on God and attempted to do what he wanted to do, God is not necessarily always using ‘beautiful’ people. Beautiful on the inside yes, but not necessarily on the outside. Scholars say that even Paul the Great Apostle could have ‘possibly’ had some type of eye problem such as gook in his eyes that may have turned some people off. We don’t exactly know what his “thorn in his side” was. It was appointed to him to keep him humble. 2Co 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
But I have noticed that true prophets and ministers of the Most High turn beautiful and become sharp and young as they continue in Him, in Jesus Christ. One preacher had someone ask him how he stays so young. He simply told them that he serves a risen and living Christ who keeps him young and to this day, he still look like a teenager.
The Hydroxychloroquine argument:
People are getting upset because Certified doctors are praising the results of Hydroxychloroquine against #COVID19 #Coronovirus. They are saying that everyone who comes to them with Diabetes or some type of ailment, ends up becoming healed of the virus, and healthy again just by taking the pill twice a day. Here’s my question, instead of people complaining and pressing their hatred of our current President upon us all, why don’t they allow the use of the medicine and then collect data on the results themselves? Think about it, why would someone fight so hard against something unless there is something good about it? They were hell-bent on killing Jesus as well. That’s that demonic activity that wants to, as Bob Marley used to say, “kill it before it grows.” It’s just like preachers, beware of those who get too much attention, the devil already has them, that is their glory. You can just about trust those who are not so well-known or not so gorgeous or handsome. They are the humble ones. They are the publicly denied. Jesus was denied wherever He went and so shall we be. I am denied. I am used to it and I DON’T care. I’ve learned not to lean upon the World and men but God instead. He’s awesome. If you can’t keep up with the footmen, how can you keep up with the horses right? In Jesus, I surpass them all. Thank you Jesus.
Jer 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
Our ministry and our lives should present Hope right? Jesus is our Hope. He came and gave us Hope and wants us to give others the same. Instead of making this long and drawn out, because I am feeling some kind of way today, I will end this by delivering to you the fact that we, true Christians, not just the Logos ones but the Rhema ones, should live their lives delivering Hope. If you are against bringing Hope to the people and you can’t tell when the Spirit is speaking, then you may as well crawl up to the arms of Moloch with the abortionists, (baby-killers), and the defiant “believers” and Hope that you are going to Heaven. I know that I am going, I don’t have to Hope that I do. Pick a side folks.
