Who and what are "Scapegoats"? Scapegoats are often the "truth-tellers" in the family. They say what cannot be said by anyone else. They are the ones who bring the skeletons out of the closet and throw them in the middle of the living-room to be confronted. They are usually godly and Christ followers. A dysfunctional, scapegoating family, confronted with their own transgressions, will often redirect all of their energy towards targeting the "Scapegoat" for their sins rather than owning their own behavior. The "Scapegoat" is often chosen by a narcissistic parent. That parent chooses that son or daughter because they remind them of someone who confronted them that they cannot stand from their own life or that child reminds them of who they are not, nor ever will be. The Scapegoating is a hostile pattern by which family members move blame and responsibility away from themselves towards the scapegoated person. It is practiced by feelings of hostility, inappropriate accusations and slander towards that chosen family member and it is EVIL to the core. The "Scapegoat" is wrongly persecuted, receives misplaced criticism, blame, condemnation and they are likely to suffer feeling of rejection from those whom the perpetrators are likely to influence.
It is very common for a narcissistic parent to have a "Golden Child". In the eyes of the narcissistic parent, the golden child is is the best and most wonderful and can do nothing wrong, even though they have done much wrong. Their most rival achievements are held up for admiration. Children in dysfunctional families are given these roles to play long before they are old enough to even talk. The "Black Sheep" is usually the one who causes all the troubles while the "Scapegoat" lives righteous. The narcissistic mother will NEVER defend or protect the scapegoated child from the attacks of others. In fact, she GROOMS the other siblings and family members to engage with her against the scapegoated child and they willingly comply. Most of the family members are narcissists just like the mother. Anything that goes wrong in their lives, just like the narcissist mother, is made to be the FAULT of the scapegoated child. She has taught the rest of the children to become "Golden Children" or "budding Narcissists". She SUPPORTS the abuse of the scapegoated child by the siblings and does NOTHING to prevent the abuse but actually encourages it. Especially since she blames everything that goes wrong in the family on the scapegoated child. Once the non-scapegoated siblings realize that they are NEVER going to be blamed for anything they do, they learn that they can mention the scapegoated child's name or actually make up some slander or lie and they are "off the hook." The more the scapegoat tries to defend themselves, the worst the abuse becomes. They become used to accepting the blame for all the family relationships. They can't do anything right no matter what they do and how much they sacrifice. They are the only ones who actually care, love, have empathy and are the givers but their narcissistic family are the TAKERS.
The narcissistic mother and siblings begin a "smear campaign" to the rest of the family and anyone who they come in contact that may know the scapegoat, to destroy the scapegoats reputation and they are believed since there is power in numbers. They will tell their friends, nieces, nephews, cousins and even ministry clergy just how "evil" or "mentally ill" the scapegoat is, The scapegoated child who is now an adult, is not allowed to be angry for the abuse and they are not allowed to saying anything lest they invite more abuse through narcissistic behaviors such as gas-lighting, silent treatment, trauma, discarding, and the list goes on. They are told they must "forgive" since they call themselves a "Christian", so the cycle of abuse continues until the scapegoat removes themselves permanently from the family. These narcissistic families never get along with each other anyways. Once the scapegoat is gone, they will find another one to abuse. The scapegoat is usually the "righteous" godly one and the rest of the family members are the evil ones. The family members will never take any responsibility for the abuse they have heap on the scapegoated child. Those who hate the truth and love lies will naturally hate you. They will hate you just like they hated Jesus. So, the "root cause" of the friction between you and your family members is a "spiritual problem." Loving the truth is a guarantee that you will have enemies. Don't believe those who tell you that if you have a "right" relationship" with God you will have a right relationship with your family. The division in your family is not your fault. They are the EVIL ones. They actually ENJOY seeing the pain in your life they cause. They label you as the "mentally ill" one or the "crazy" one. In fact, if you try to explain this to others that know your family, they have a hard time believing you because your family has portrayed a different face to them treating them with kindness and respect and you with slander, abuse, disdain and lies. Satan is behind this.
When every friend has betrayed our trust or deserted us, we normally turn to our family members for unconditional love and a safe place to fall. For the family scapegoat, just the opposite happens. The very people that we should be able to count on are actually those who betray us, mock us, make fun of us and ridicule us to our friends, and anyone who will listen. Healthy families do not have this scenario going on. In a healthy family system, family members are able to acknowledge their problems, discuss them openly and work towards change. They take responsibility for their own behavior. They believe change is possible and help each other make that change with workable solutions. They do not back stab each other, or slander each other or gang up on one family member and scapegoat them and attempt to get other family members to to disown the scapegoated person. The healthy family is completely opposite than the scapegoated family. They are honest with each other and do not engage in lies or act like they are in the "middle" when there are family disputes. They recognize right from wrong and good from evil. They do not keep "family secrets" from a member of the family. They have mutual love and respect for each other and they trust each other. They pray for each other and have others pray for them. They encourage each other. Siblings are able to express justified anger without fear of punishment. For a narcissistic mother to engage in abuse along with the siblings of the scapegoated child is pure EVIL. It is not to be tolerated. She, along with your siblings, make you look "crazy."
Hitler tortured and killed 6 million Jews whether we understand why he did it or not. It's a "choice" he made. The children of the devil are just like him. The goal is to steal, kill and destroy. Are you the family scapegoat that feels like you are killed by your family in a slow deliberate way, stealing your identity and destroying your very soul? ANYONE, including your family, who does this to another human being is NOT of God. They are constantly attacking and slandering you. They will give an account to Him to is ready to judge the living and the dead. Until this type of family repents, you are to SHUN evil. You cannot have any relationship with any of them until they come to you with true and genuine repentance in detail for everything they have done to you. Not..."let's just forget about it." Please don't fall for that. They will pull you right back into their diabolical abuse. They are true narcissists. Genuine believers "love" one another. They are not genuine believers even if they profess Christ or go to church. By their fruit we shall know them. We are to forgive everyone from our hearts but it doesn't mean to forgive unrepentant sinners and have a right relationship with them (Luke 17:3). The Bible doesn't tell us to "look the other way" when someone is being abused OR to tolerate any type of evil! God HATES all types of evil and does not allow any excuse for someone to engage in it. These are generational sins. Remember, they do not love you. That is not love. They actually ENJOY harming you and that's why they do it. They feel NO REMORSE. Their conscience is seared. It doesn't matter if they call themselves "Christians." Christians do not do this. You, on the other hand would do anything for them because you are the only loving one in the family. This is what you have shown your entire life. Ask yourself why they do not do the same for you? God promises to replace the love you do not get from your parent, siblings and family with those in God's Kingdom who will truly love you. He is a promise keeper!
"Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly I will destroy" -Psalm 101:5
Not Peace, but a Sword
34“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36And a person’s enemies will be those of his own household. 37Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

I'm so sorry I must do this but...let me burst your imaginary life. The very life that is not real. I mean....it is real in your world, but it's still not reality. I will use an example. Let's say that you and I are having tea with cake. We are laying outside on the ground and a beautiful planet appears in the sky. This planet explodes and the debris is heading towards the earth right at us. I begin screaming meanwhile, you are looking at the sky smiling away. I am still screaming for you to take cover, but you keep smiling as though nothing bad was going on. The reality is...we are about to get hit with rocks going the speed of sound and....YOU...are in lala land. This is our current state of affairs in our world.
We have God's judgement hanging over each person living in sin or compromise and the rotten floor is ready to collapse under their feet with the flaming fires of hell. Yet man is consumed with the never ending thought that..."things will get better". Well guess what? You are in for a rude awakening. NOTHING is going to get better. In fact, let me burst your imaginary bubble. The Bible says....things will get worse and worse every day until the Battle of Armageddon. You see, Satan has blinded you. You can't see anything. You live in your own world that YOU have made up in YOUR mind in order to cope. You can't stand negativity. Not even when God is saying it, so you shut your ears to the TRUTH. The things that are written is the Bible seem pretty dreadful for our future. But most people only want "positive" New Age "vibes'. Well, those "vibes" won't work.
Let me tell you what's coming and how to prepare. There will be wars and rumors of wars. 1/3 of the earth's population will be destroyed. There will be more plagues and famines. Men will wish they could die, but God won't let them. Some will die of heart failure from the fear of what they will see. More false prophets and false religion will be widely accepted, even by the Christian Church. The earthquakes are increasing with greater magnitude. There will be a false messiah on the scene. He will perform signs and wonders to even call fire down from heaven. I wouldn't be surprised if he lifted the covid virus and pretended to heal everyone on this earth. You will starve to death unless you take the Mark of the Beast. Homosexuality will be accepted as good and those who oppose it as evil people. Lawlessness will increase. Deception will be the greatest mark of the end times. The "Fig tree" generation will see the coming of our Messiah. I believe we are that generation. Your own family members will put to you to death. You will be hated by ALL Nations. There will be a counterfeit Christianity that most will fall into. You will be beheaded for following Jesus. A day's wages will buy a loaf of bread. One day, the true Christians will vanish and you will be left behind to face God's wrath on the humans during the Great Tribulation.
The economy is going to collapse and this virus is not going away any time soon. Almost 100,000 people a week have filed for unemployment since the lockdowns began and the news will not report it. Most people are working from home and majority of business are out of business. 1/3 of all mortgages and renters have not been paying since this crisis began. Almost 500,000 dead in the United States from this plague. More plagues are coming according to the Bible. This current virus can mutate 17 times. The whole world is setting the stage for the Anti-Christ to come on the scene. He will be worshipped. The whole earth will take the mark on thier right hand or forehead and be cursed forever, except those who got beheaded for the name of Jesus. The vaccine is NOT the Mark of the Beast. You will not be able to buy or sell without it. God Himself will send the STRONG delusion to ALL those who did not love the truth and repent.
The only way to be rescued is for you to REPENT. Do it now before it's too late. It's time to get your head out of the imaginary life you have been deceived to believe by Satan himself. He is a Liar and he will murder you. He was a murderer from the beginning. He is a Liar and the Father of all lies and liars. Jesus is the only one who can set you free from your imagination. The TRUTH (Jesus) will set you free. Please post a comment if you would like to hear more and you are ready to give your life to Jesus for real this time. Our hope in not in this world but in a King and a Kingdom that is not of this world. How glorious that day will be!!!!
"For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 23Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 24For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. 25See, I have told you beforehand. 26So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man."
There is nowhere in the Bible, where there is any book or any reference to a book written called: THE BOOK OF ENOCH. Even so, Christians around the world read this book. It was found in the dead sea scrolls, but so were multiple teachings that were heretical as well. It is a dangerous book because it contradicts the Bible. I can't tell you how alarmed I am. The last time I sat in Church in an "end times" bible study, the Pastor taught from this book. The people were sitting there as lambs lead to the slaughter house. They were soaking in all the false teachings as the Pastor was validating this book as true biblical "scriptures". At this moment in time, the red alarms were going off in my spirit. That alarm was the Holy Spirit warning me to RUN. I didn't realize just how fast until now. Jesus spoke of the leaven of the Pharisees. You see, a little poison in the water is undetectable, but it makes the entire water POISON. You cannot separate the poison from the water once it is in there.
Yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees
5Later, after they crossed to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6“Watch out!” Jesus warned them. “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
7At this they began to argue with each other because they hadn’t brought any bread. 8 Jesus knew what they were saying, so he said, “You have so little faith! Why are you arguing with each other about having no bread? 9 Don’t you understand even yet? Don’t you remember the 5,000 I fed with five loaves, and the baskets of leftovers you picked up? 10Or the 4,000 I fed with seven loaves, and the large baskets of leftovers you picked up? 11 Why can’t you understand that I’m not talking about bread? So again I say, ‘Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.’”
12Then at last they understood that he wasn’t speaking about the yeast in bread, but about the deceptive teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
"This false teaching is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough!"
1. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS THERE WERE 4,500 FOOT GIANTS BORN FROM HUMAN WOMEN
Enoch Chapter 7:2: "And they (human woman) became pregnant, and they bare great giants, who height was three thousand ells."
According to Deuteronomy 3:11, the bed of King Og was 13.5 feet long. So, we can estimate he was between 9 and 11 feet tall. Giants in the Bible are recorded to be between 9 and 11 feet in height. Nowhere in the Bible has there been any truth of any human being 4,500 feet tall. Noah's Ark was 450 feet long, so according to the Book of Enoch, giants had to be 10 times the size of Noah's Ark.
2. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS WOMEN BECAME MYTHICAL CREATURES
Enoch Chapter 19:2: "And the women also of the angels who went astray shall become sirens."
The Book of Enoch states the human women who married angels gave birth to giants who were transformed into half-bird and half-human creatures. This proves the Book of Enoch promotes pagan mythology. You will never read about a human transforming into a mythical creature in the Bible. Sirens are creatures from Greek mythology.
3. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS ALL SIN IN THE WORLD COMES FROM AZAZEL AND NOT FROM ADAM
Enoch Chapter 10:8- "And the whole earth has been corrupted through the works taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin."
The Book of Enoch attributes all sin in the world to Azazel. a fallen angel. This is completely contrary to the Bible. Advocates for the Book of Enoch claim that Azazel is Satan and that Satan introduced sin into the world. However, the Book of Enoch says that Azazel is bound in chains and locked up until the day of judgment (Enoch 10:4-6). The Bible says Satan is free to roam the earth (1 Peter 2:5:8, Job 2:2). Also the Bible clearly says, "Therefore, as sin entered into the world through one man(Adam), and death through sin, and so death passed to all men, because all sinned." -Romans 5;12
4. THE BOOK OF ENOCH CLAIMS THAT ANGELS BUILT NOAH'S ARK
"And now the angels are making a wooden (building), and when they have completed that task I will place My hand upon it and preserve it, and there shall come forth from it the seed of life, and a change shall set in so that the earth will not remain without inhabitant." -Enoch 67:2
Noah alone was given instructions to build the Ark, not angels.
"But I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground, according to its kind, two of every sort shall come in to you to keep them alive. 21 Also take with you every sort of food that is eaten, and store it up. It shall serve as food for you and for them.” 22 Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him." -Genesis 6
The Book of Hebrews praises the faith and obedience of Noah for preparing the Ark, but the Book of Enoch robs Noah and destroys the example of faith spoken about Noah in the Bible.
5. THE BOOK OF ENOCH TEACHES GREEK MYTHOLOGY AS GODLY KNOWLEDGE
"And first there goes forth the great luminary, named the Sun, and his circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and he is quite filled with illuminating and heating fire. The chariot on which he ascends, the wind drives, and the sun goes down from the heaven and returns through the north in order to reach the east, and is so guided that he comes to the appropriate (lit. ‘ that ‘) portal and shines in the face of the heaven."
"And after this law I saw another law dealing with the smaller luminary, which is named the Moon. And her circumference is like the circumference of the heaven, and her chariot in which she rides is driven by the wind, and light is given to her in (definite) measure."
None of this is biblical. The Book of Enoch claims this is how the Sun and Moon operate in the sky. The Book of Enoch also claims this information about the Sun and Moon going across the sky in a chariot is knowledge given to Enoch from heaven. Yet, King Josiah, a righteous King, destroyed the chariot of the sun god. So, why would the angels from heaven teach Enoch these same pagan mythologies of the sun god and moon goddess?
"He removed from the entrance of the LORD’s Temple the horse statues that the former kings of Judah had dedicated to the sun. They were near the quarters of Nathan-melech the eunuch, an officer of the court. The king also burned the chariots dedicated to the sun." -2 Kings 23:11
6. THE BOOK OF ENOCH TEACHES THAT NOAH HAD LASER BEAM EYES
Enoch 103:1-2 "And after some days my son, Methuselah, took a wife for his son Lamech, and she became pregnant by him and bore him a son. 2 And his body was white as snow and red as a rose, the hair of his head as white as wool and his demdema 29 beautiful; and as for his eyes, when he opened them the whole house glowed like the sun—(rather) the
whole house glowed even more exceedingly."
The next passage describes how Lamech urged his father Methuselah to go and speak with Enoch (who had been translated to heaven) about Noah. We are forbidden to speak to the dead or anyone in heaven except Jesus.
Enoch 106:7 "So I am beseeching you now, begging you in order that
you may go to his (grand)father Enoch, our father, and learn from him the truth, for his dwelling place is among the angels.”
Genesis 5: 24 says: "Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him". Hebrews 11;5 says...Enoch was TAKEN AWAY. It would be impossible for Methuselah to go to the "ends of the earth" and yell for Enoch and for Enoch to come back to come back to earth to give Methuselah the answer he wanted about Noah. This is a heretical fable. Noah could not have consulted with Enoch since Enoch was translated decades before Noah was born. He was not around for people to talk to him.
Once again, the Book of Enoch is contrary to scripture and introduces false heresies. If Jude was quoting from the Book of Enoch, then he would have had to reference 2 different scriptures in the Book of Enoch because there is not one single statement that matches Jude 1:14-15.
"Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Lord is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones to judge everyone, and to convict all of them of all the ungodly acts they have committed in their ungodliness, and of all the defiant words ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”
(1 Enoch 71:13-14, emphasis added): "And the Head of Days came with Michael and Raphael and Gabriel and Phanuel, and thousands and tens of thousands of angels without number. And he came to me and greeted me with his voice and said to me, 'You (are) that Son of Man who was born for righteousness, and righteousness dwells on you, and the righteousness of the Head of Days will not forsake you.'"
This quote comes from The Hermeneia Translation. If this translation of 1 Enoch 71:14 is correct when it identifies Enoch as the Messianic figure, then this should impact how much significance we place on these writings. If the author of The Parables of Enoch intended to identify Enoch as this figure who fulfills these Messianic prophecies, then that puts The Parables of Enoch—that is, 1 Enoch 37-71—in direct conflict with the teachings of the New Testament concerning the identity of the Messianic Son of Man...Jesus.
We are in the end times and DECEPTION is spreading just as Jesus said it would. Remember the parable about the leaven of the Pharisees. Remember the poison in the water. Once it's there, it's throughout the entire teaching. Please separate yourselves from false teachers and pastors and repent before you get into deeper deception. God will send the STRONG delusion soon.
