Two thousand years ago Jesus Christ promised to His small band of followers that He will return the second time to finally put an end to Satan's dominion and reclaim our world that was held hostage since the fall of Adam and Eve.
But before His return we are told that there shall be a person, imitating the 2nd coming and will perform signs and wonders...declare himself as the Christ or the Anointed Ruler: he will introduce himself as the savior of mankind. The whole world, at least not the real Christians, will in fact worship this imitation Christ (savior) because of the miracles that he shall perform...
Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together to Him, that you may not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction . . . (NASB) 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3
The future scenario are therefore quite alarming because we are also told, that even the very elect will also be deceived. So how can the world recognized its Messiah when a counterfeit savior will appear in our midst?
But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods, which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth. (NASB) 1 Timothy 4:1-3
Look very closely to the above given clues. What group or religion that came to your mind when you speak of celibacy? Are your religious leader married or they allowed to get a wife? Did they told you not to eat meat on specific days like perhaps "Holy Friday"?
What doctrines of demons? They tell you not to read the Bible, if you do, then you shall be branded as heretics.
Are they hypocrites for wearing long gown to show that they are holy men? Deceitful spirits that told you personal opinion and read the Bible in Latin, murmuring non-sense. They sprinkle you with what they called "holy water" which was not an original command to Apostle but invention to earn more money. Have they change the Sabbath day into Sunday? They change the lunar calendar into solar calendar to distort the festivities of God.
New International Version (NIV)
18 They said to you, “In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires.” 19 These are the people who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.

The Long Hair of Jesus
We don't have any idea how Jesus look like but what we do know is that the typical Christ that the false religion illustrate was very far from the real Jesus described in the Bible.
The obvious was the common depiction of Jesus having long hair...This false rendition was a blatant character assassination to mislead people of Jesus' real identity. The same Jesus who inspired St. Paul to write:
1 Corinthians 11:14: t "Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?"
To first century Israelite, having long hair is unacceptable which they attributed to being Greek or pagan. To Paul (a former devout Pharisee) growing hair very long is an issue of utmost importance because he is discussing on the said chapter how men and women should conduct themselves in public.
Do you think Jesus would be an example of disgrace? Let us remember, that Paul is speaking here to people who had probably seen Jesus personally. If Jesus had sported long hair even once in his entire life, just like our present day Christians portrayal of Him, then Paul must be stoned to death at that moment for blasphemy.
A Feb. 24, 2004, Associated Press article reports: "'Jesus didn't have long hair,' said physical anthropologist Joe Zias, who has studied hundreds of skeletons found in archaeological digs in Jerusalem. 'Jewish men back in antiquity did not have long hair.' 'The Jewish texts ridiculed long hair as something Roman or Greek,' said New York University's Lawrence Schiffman" ("Jesus Scholars Find Fault in Gibson's 'Passion'"). However, it wasn't at all typical among even the Greeks and Romans, as plenty of statues and coins from the time attest.
In addition to Paul's instruction regarding long hair on men, the Bible also contains circumstantial evidence that Jesus didn't have long hair.
Perhaps the most telling is that when Judas betrayed Jesus, he had to identify Jesus by a kiss. That was the prearranged signal Judas had given so that the guards could identify Jesus. Why did Judas have to do that? Because Jesus looked just like any average man of His day, and they wouldn't have been able to identify Him if Judas hadn't betrayed Him with a kiss.
This incident shows us that Jesus looked like any ordinary, average Jew of His day; there was nothing distinguishing about Him. The messianic prophecy of Isaiah 53:2 (NIV) says of Him: "He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him."
Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.-- 1 Corinthians 11:1
"Along with extensive writings from the period, experts also point to a frieze on Rome's Arch of Titus, erected after Jerusalem was captured in AD 70 to celebrate the victory, which shows Jewish men with short hair taken into captivity" (ibid.).
The Gospels tell us that on at least two occasions Jesus slipped away into the crowds when people were trying to kill Him (Luke 4:30; John 8:59). He was able to escape harm because He was simply an average-looking man of His day and blended in with the other people around Him.
"The Mother, the Child, and the Father of the gods,"--in other words, "The Egyptian Trinity."
Did the Roman Occult Religion changed? No, they were the same Ancient Religion observed by Pagan Rome, retaining the same gods. Each time therefore you eat the bread, you allow these gods inside your body to possess you. That's the reason you are demonized and can't recognized the Word of God. You are being possess by these pagan gods.
Who do you prefer to worship? To whom do you kneel here?
Now they said, it doesn't matter to what image of Jesus Christ you pray as long as you have him in your mind and heart. Would it be strange if my wife said that she had me always in her heart,that's why she constantly stares on another man's picture? Ouch...
By the way...above pictures are just a dozen of the hundred images of different Jesus Christ available for you to kneel.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, -- Exodus 20:5
Next issue, maybe we can focus into other Occult "Christian" churches...and so on and so forth...as for now, I want you to contemplate on the question: Will you recognized Him?
