Reality & Society: If Yah Is Not real,Why are they Banning The Bible? China, California, & others
Some people claim Yah (God) is not real, because of evolution, or because He wouldn't allow babies to get sick and die. Some people claim Yah is not real because He would "stop all the evil" with just one thought." Others suggest Yah is not real because of their own horrible choices in life or blame the poor choices their parents made on Yah so therefor He isn't real. This lesson will use the KJV Scriptures.
But let us look at this question: If Yah is not real, Why are they Banning The Bible?
Maybe this lesson will help you explain to others why they should turn to Yah and surrender into Real Freedom before It is to late. And by It, I mean the opportunity.
Scripture states: Matthew 24 11-14
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
To understand this better, let us look at the word Iniquity.
According to Webster Dictionary online:
: the quality of being unfair or evil
: something that is unfair or evil
1: gross injustice : wickedness
2: a wicked act or thing : sin
Now let us look into some of the cities and countries banning the Bible and see what else they are doing.
AB 2943 declares “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” is fraudulent business practice.
California State Assemblymember, Al Muratsuchi, said, “The First Amendment does not prohibit banning fraudulent conduct. The faith community, like anyone else, needs to evolve with the times.” (emphasis added).
During his speech on the California bill at Google headquarters, LGBT activist Samuel Brinton said he wanted to “figure out a way to stop” pastors and churches from offering counsel to help people change unwanted same-sex attractions. He went on to say, “I may not be able to FIND every little camp…every pastor, but I can make it something that is culturally unacceptable.” He added, “Yes, it’s directly affecting mental health professionals, but by proxy, it’s affecting everyone else.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Let us now look at the word Effeminate:
1 : having feminine qualities untypical of a man : not manly in appearance or manner
2: marked by an unbecoming delicacy or overrefinement
BEIJING — The Chinese government has banned online retailers from selling the Bible, moving in the wake of new rules to control the country’s burgeoning religious scene.
The move aligns with a longstanding effort to limit the influence of Christianity in China. Among China’s major religions — which include Buddhism, Taoism, Islam and folk beliefs — Christianity is the only one whose major holy text cannot be sold through normal commercial channels. The Bible is printed in China but legally available only at church bookstores.
The advent of online retailers created a loophole that made the Bible easily available. This was especially important in China given the growing dominance of online shopping.
The closing of that loophole follows new government religious regulationsthat have effectively tightened rules on Christianity and Islam, while promoting Buddhism, Taoism and folk religion as part of President Xi Jinping’s efforts to promote traditional values.
From 2014 to 2016, more than 1,500 crosses were removed from churches in one Chinese province with close ties to Mr. Xi. At the same time, the government has stepped up measures against what it sees as excessive public displays of the Islamic faith, such as men wearing long beards or women wearing headscarves, as well as shops and restaurants that do not sell pork products, tobacco or alcohol.
The report shows that most religions in China have been quickly increasing their reach. The number of Buddhist or Taoist believers was not counted because those faiths lack membership rolls, but their growth can be seen in the increasing number of temples — to 33,500 and 9,000 today from 13,000 and 1,500 in 1997.
What does buddhist and taoist believe?
Buddhism believes in reincarnation (rebirth). The ultimate goal of a Buddhist is to get enlightenment (Nirvana) and liberate oneself from endless reincarnation and suffering. Some see Buddhism as a religion, others see it is a philosophy, and others think it is a way of finding reality. https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhism
Taoists regard both the things which are similar and opposites as being important (like the idea of Yin and Yang). They do not worships a single god; instead, theyworship many different gods (or deities). Worship takes place in Taoist temples which are believed to be intertwined with everything else in The Way. http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/taoism/beliefs/gods.shtml
2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
2 Timothy 4:1-4
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
3. Libya and Morroco
It's against the law to carry a Bible translated into Arabic in Morocco. Reports of overt Christian persecution are few but Christian children are not given a religious education.
Several of Morocco’s penal codes act to deter Moroccans from leaving Islam and converting to Christianity or any other belief system. For example, it is illegal to have a copy of the Bible written in Arabic. Moroccans are not allowed to enter churches in the nation; they can only be used by expats and foreign visitors. There was a recent case of a Marrakeshi couple who were arrested for going into a church; police stated that they were arrested on suspicion of having changed their religion to Christianity, though they were released without charge shortly after the arrest
Some Islamic nations enforce the death penalty on people who leave the faith. While Morocco does not have the death penalty for apostasy (the renunciation of a religion), when it comes to Islam, a religious decree was issued in 2013 by the Supreme Council of Religious Scholars (based in Saudi Arabia) stating that Moroccan apostates should be sentenced to death. https://theculturetrip.com/africa/morocco/articles/why-are-there-hidden-christian-communities-in-morocco/
Like Morocco, Libya has laws against bringing Bibles in the Arabic language into the country. The distribution of Bibles and evangelism is illegal.
Libyan Christians from Muslim backgrounds face extremely violent and intense persecution, constantly pressured by their families and the wider community to renounce their faith. Christian migrants from other parts of the continent are also targets of Islamic militant groups and organized criminal groups that kidnap and sometimes kill with shocking brutality. Believers who avoid violent persecution are still harassed and subjected to threats from radical Islamists. Christ-followers who publically express their faith or try to share the gospel face the risk of arrest and violence as well. Because no single central government exists to impose law and order in the country, most crimes against Christians go unpunished.https://www.opendoorsusa.org/christian-persecution/world-watch-list/libya/
The Maldives have a reputation for being a luxurious idyll but a Bible can get you into trouble in this paradise. Under the country's strict Islamic laws, importing a Bible is forbidden. There is currently no complete translation of the Bible into Dhivehi, the official language of the tropical nation.
In the Maldives churches are banned, evangelism is forbidden and strict state censorship exists. Any non-approved religious materials are banned, including holy books, CDs, DVDs and pictures. The internet, media and printed material are also censored, and migrants' luggage searched for prohibited items.
Maldivians suspected of converting from Islam have been imprisoned, labelled as 'traitors' and 'immature' and accused of being influenced by 'foreign forces'. They are released only when they sign a declaration that they believe in Islam, but are still regarded with suspicion, with some losing their jobs. Many non-Muslims are forced to perform Muslim prayer rituals to avoid being suspected, and police arrested over 70 people during Ramadan in 2008 for not fasting. http://www.eauk.org/current-affairs/politics/the-maldives-no-paradise-for-religious-freedom.cfm

The Question I ask again: If Yah doesn't exist, why are they going to extreme measures, yes even death to keep the Scriptures out of their countries? Simple answer is: He is Real and they are terrified. History repeates itself over and over and over. It seems that countries and even cities think they can run from Yah...but they cannot. Romans 1:18- 22
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
We should Not fear what is to come or what is happening now:
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
(It is not about knowing Yah's name at this point when trying to understand that countires cannot even access scripture for the purpose of gaining Knowledge about Yah and Yahusha. So please, remember we are all on different levels in our revelations. I am truly blessed to know what I so so I can share with others, and most of the time I learn as I write as well. Yes, we are called out of the churches and beast system ideoloy called religion, but knowing seeds as small as mustard grains are being prohibited in 50 countries and now individual cities, we must begin with basics. )
