In the Book of Acts Chapter 4, we read that some of the disciples of Jesus, commanded by Him to preach the Gospel, were ordered by the rulers and religious leaders to stop preaching and teaching in His name.
But they replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God; for we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
Of what harm, what threat was the truth they spoke?
Truth threatens the glory and riches of falsehood! Acts Chapter 19 specifically reports that workmen who received “a good income” from the business of idolatry were disturbed that the Apostle Paul was preaching that “man-made gods are no gods at all.” One silver-smith, Demetrius, maker of silver shrines of the goddess Artemis, complained thus:
“There is a danger not only that our trade will lose its good name, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be discredited, and the goddess herself, who is worshipped throughout the province of Asia and the world, will be robbed of her divine majesty.”
Therein lies the great danger of Yahweh’s truth; it threatens the power of Satan! Truth disrobes the false majesty of the demon-world and impedes the flow of filthy lucre (money) into its coffers. To maintain a deception, truth must be vigilantly, violently, kept out! Even in commerce Satan works to make good look evil and evil look good.
In what ways does this apply to the case of the US FTC and FDA vs. Daniel Chapter One?
The DCO ministry was ordered by government agencies to stop preaching and teaching the truth of Jesus (what we have seen for 30 years.) Overseer Jim Feijo, and I, his wife Tricia, were ordered to sign and send out a government-written letter saying, in essence, that God-created herbs and nutrients do not help heal cancer and that only conventional cancer treatment is safe and effective for cancer. That is a lie. The original FTC letter sent consumers to the National Cancer Institute. Why?
Because the truth discredits the god of the Cancer Industry. The truth of Yahweh’s Creation threatens to rob that god, with its oncology treatments of chemo and radiation, of its false majesty. And, after all, as the Ephesian silver-smith Demetrius said, they “receive a good income from this business.”
A brief overview of facts about the goddess Artemis, from Greek mythology: She was the virgin huntress, called “Queen of the beasts.” Her arrows could bring sudden death and disease to girls and women. She was the goddess of Nature and Animals. (The FDA raided DCO in September 2010, to search for and seize “any representation . . . that any Daniel Chapter One product . . . could be used to treat man or other animal.” The government considers us animals! But our Creator Yahweh says clearly in His Word that we are created in His image and are higher than the animals.)
Artemis was the daughter of Zeus from an erotic escapade. Zeus was depicted by Greek artists seated in majesty (to the only God our Savior be majesty! Jude 25), or standing, striding forward with a thunderbolt in his raised right hand. He was called Father Zeus (only Yahweh is to be called Father, Matthew 23:9), the king of the gods (Yahweh is King of kings and Lord of lords! Revelation 17:14), god of the sky, thunder, and lightning (Yahweh is the true God of the sky and the elements; Job 28:25, 26 and 37:15, 18) and the god of law, order, and justice (Yahweh is the supreme Judge; Daniel 6:26.)
Jupiter is the Roman equivalent of Zeus. The symbol for a prescription drug, big R with a little x, is the symbol of Jupiter – calling for the protection of a false god in medical contexts.
Back to the Book of Acts. When a riot broke out in Ephesus after Demetrius worked the people up about Paul’s preaching, the city clerk quieted the rowdy crowd who had been shouting, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” by saying:
“If Demetrius and his fellow craftsmen have a grievance against anybody, the courts are open and there are proconsuls. They can press charges. If there is anything further you want to bring up, it must be settled in a legal assembly.” (Acts 19: 38-39)
Who is it, really, that had a grievance against what Daniel Chapter One was preaching and teaching? Let the ones who wrote the letter saying only chemo and radiation have been proven safe and effective in humans, come forward!
Instead they hide behind an anonymous letter we were forced to send. If they did not fear the truth, we would have been given a fair trial, unbiased and uncorrupted, but that is not what took place. The truth we speak threatens the lies of the cancer industry god, and the majesty and profits of Big-Pharma.
