The kind of literature that fan fiction is did not spring fully formed into being in the 1960s and 70s, though some journalists still seem to think so. Throughout this book I have been stressing the link, in literary terms, between fan fiction and any other fiction based on a shared canon […]. It is clear from the comments of fan fiction writers like Ika and Belatrix Carter that one major attraction of this genre for writers is the sense of a complicit audience who already share much information with the writer and can be relied on to pick up ironies or allusions without having them spelled out. Writing based on the canons of myth and folklore can do this too, though as Belatrix Carter pointed out in chapter 7, these canons have been so extensively used for so long it is becoming harder to do anything with them that feels original.

But there is another point, implied in Ika’s remark in chapter 2 - ‘What I like about fan fiction is that you can still get that very highly trained audience that can understand very, very complex and allusive things.’ The use of 'still’ alludes to the undoubted fact that for the traditional canons of myth, Bible, history, and folklore, this “very highly trained” audience is not as reliable as it once was, because the canon information is not as widely shared as it used to be. […] a writer can no longer allude to Lazarus, Circe or Alexander and be reasonably sure that most of his readers have in their heads the thoughts, stories or images for which he was aiming. The human need for heroes and archetypes does not go away, but their faces change with time, and one avatar takes the place of another. Ika’s point is a shrewd one: in an age of fragmented rather than shared cultures the fan fiction audience is unusual in having as thorough a knowledge of its particularly shared canon as a Bible-reading or classically educated audience once did.

I’m going to share the one of the greatest deceptions in this earth, till this day. I hope I reach you and wake you up. This image here is “Cesare Borgia”, 2nd son of Pope Alexander the 6th, Painted by the Roman Catholic church as “Jesus” to decieve the masses. The true agenda of course was to teach the people who were enslaved (Blacks, Native Americans, Mexicans) ((12 tribes of Israel))) , that they were not the children of the promise, to further destroy their Identity.

Psalm 83:2-4 “For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”

Yes the truth was hidden, we are the hidden ones it is speaking of, because we lost our identity through slavery, and false teachings (religions, school systems, etc). The most high God never gave us religion, he gave us laws and commandments. These churches will not teach you this, they are set up to keep you asleep. Christ warned us about this, false christs, and false prophets.

Matthew 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

These churches will teach you all are equal, God loves all, through grace we are all saved, the list goes on. Lets see what the bible says. This bible is for the 12 tribes who were scattered throughout the earth, and also brought here on slave ships. We all know history on slavery, but they kept the truth of who we are, and stole our Identity by going into Israel and claiming they are the children of the promise. (Judaism) Its all lies.

Romans 9:6-8 “6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.”

So yes you can be of Abraham’s seed, but through Isaac, We are called. The promises of the bible, (ruling over all nations), the land, the kingdom, will go to us at the end. That is why we are to repent from these false teachings (Pagan holidays, religions, sin) etc so that we can be ready for the kingdom to come.

Why do you think Christ told his Disciples to not go into the way of the Gentiles? They mixed pagan traditions into their own religion and still decieve people till this day.

Matthew 10:5-6
“These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:”
“But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Colossians 2:8
“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

Christ, our forefathers, the angels, Adam, are all Black. So you tell me who’s over in Israel claiming to be the children of TMH with the “Star of David” on their synagouges? The star of David is the star of “Moloch” you can look this up for yourself, its linked to child sacrifice, and yes they do these same things today, believe it or not. I know you all saw the “Pizza Gate” and “spirit cooking” email’s leaked ON THE NEWS. They have been doing this since ancient Babylon. You see why a lot of these presidents are related to each other? Where is your trust? In this system created to destroy you, Or the most high God.

Revelation 2:9
“I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.“

Believe or not, they worship Satan. It’s time to wake up brothers and sisters. You see why the Roman Catholic church would remove the Apocrypha from the bible? They are keeping you from the truth of who you are.

Let’s see what color our people are.

Adam - Genesis 2:7 “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

“From the dust of the ground”. You tell me what color is the soil, different shades of brown, the deeper you go, the darker it gets.

Job - Job 30:30 “My skin is black upon me, and my bones are burned with heat.”

Solomon - Song of Solomon 1:5 (Apocrypha) - “I am black, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.”

Christ - Revelations 1:1 “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:” Revelation ( The revealing of Christ )

Christ - Revelations 1:14-15 “His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.”

Hair like WOOL. Feet like FINE BRASS as if they BURNED in a FURNACE. What color is brasse when you burn it in a furnace? It’s Black. If his feet are black, what color do you think the rest of his body is.

Ancient of Days (The Father) - Daniel 7:9 “Daniel 7:9
“I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.”

You see what it means for us to really be made in his image? Male and Female? The Father is Black. Christ is Black. The Angels: Black.

Angels - Ezekiel 1:5-7 "5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.”

Judah, Also the Tribe of Judah (Blacks in America) - Jeremiah 14:2 “Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.”

People might say well it doesn’t matter, God loves all, yada yada. It does matter if you have been fed lies your whole life. It matters that we have our own Pastor’s out here feeding our people lies, voting into this Government. We have Pastors out here driving these nice whips taking all types of money, and teaching our people lies. It does matter.

Jeremiah 23:1-2 “1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
2 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD.”

Our people love hearing lies, things to keep us comfortable, soothing words. People think we can just do whatever right? We can smoke weed, wear what we want, then we can go to church on sunday and it’s all good the next day. Wrong.

Isaiah 30:9-10 “That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:”

^ We would rather hear people to speak to us smooth things, feed us deceits and not the truth of whats going on.

Jeremiah 5:31

“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?”

I’ll tell you the truth. Babylon (America) is going to be judged, and purged with fire for all the sin and wrong doings, the lies that have been taught. This world pushes that Homosexuality is okay, Transgender is okay, eating pork is okay, having sex before marriage is okay, legalizing weed, it’s so bad now we have our own people selling drugs on the street. You see why they push everything that goes against the laws of the Bible? Wake up. We have time to repent, study the bible, find out who we really are, and get right before Christ comes.

Revelations 18:2-5 “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”

“her sins have reached unto heaven” We have NASA out here in space, you ever notice that they name their ships after lesser gods? “Apollo” “Calipso (Calypso)” “Juno” “OSIRIS”… Osiris which is an egyptian god, another word for Satan.

You don’t even have to know the bible to know that America is falling, The nations are being stirred up, everyone is talking about shooting nukes, and missiles etc. If you studied the bible, you would know that these things will all come to pass, The most high is in control.

Jeremiah 50:9
“For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.”

Jeremiah 50:14-15 “Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD.
15 Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen, her walls are thrown down: for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done, do unto her.”

The bible is where the true knowledge is. It has our history, and the things to come. It’s already written. I pray and hope this gives you understanding. The most high tells us that we will live like pilgrims, moving from place to place when the chaos kicks off. If you aren’t walking in truth through Christ, keeping the commandments and worshipping the father in truth and spirit, how will you be ready?

Mark 13:7-8 “7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.”

These times are coming, its a time to rejoice if you’re in the truth, not look to the system or any other man for hope. People put so much trust into Obama and here we are 8 years later, Trump is picking up right where Obama left off. Where is your trust.

Proverbs 1:7
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Psalms 111:10
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.”

John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”

Faith alone is not enough if you’re in this truth, but by works as well. It is a transformation, unlearning the lies of this world, and learning the truth of the bible, precept upon precept.

James 2:24
“Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”

Isaiah 28:9-10 “Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:”

Matthew 18:3 “And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”

Children are pure, and connected more to the Father than any man on this earth. You ever wonder why children have those dreams, talking about playing with Angels in Heaven etc? why they see things and parents just think they are joking. They are pure coming into this world. Unlearn the lies taught, and read the bible. It is the living word.

Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

The law is not done away with, we are to keep the Sabbath (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown), and keep the laws and commandments Matthew 5:18 “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

Bless you.

Everything. Is. Gay.

Judas and Jesus canonically kissed in the Bible. They were lovers and Judas broke Jesus’s heart and that’s why gays get such a bad rep. Don’t tell me I’m crazy I know what I’m talking about. The Bible is gay and history is gay. Gay gay gay gay gay

thewickedandthehufflepuff  asked:

Hi! Sorry if you've already been asked that but I thought your post about Judas was SO INTERESTING and it's got me yearnin' to learnin' about nonfiction Bible/gnostic books? do u have any recs? Historical and crticial contexts of Biblical stuff is really interesting to me

WELCOME TO THE NICHE CORNER, MY FRIEND

As I’m sure you’ve guessed, this is a topic of much interest to me, and I love to read about it! This is a list of books I’ve read and heartily recommend for anyone interested in the Bible or biblical history, context, and interpretation. It is by no means exhaustive - I tend towards common sense writing with a sociological or history lens when it comes to non fiction, and away from anything scathingly atheist or overtly preachy - but it’s more than enough to get you started.

  • This may sound stupid, but you’d be surprised how many people who are interested in the bible haven’t read… the Bible. There are lots of reasons - people think it’s boring, people think it’s just for the religious, people have been scarred by Sunday school and/or scripture and/or those terrifying concerts your teachers made you endure with muppet like characters telling you the word of the lord was Totally Cool - but I’m here to tell you to think again, friends. The bible is a fascinatingly hot mess of a text that has influenced nearly every writer, politician, thinker, artist and layperson in the Western world and beyond for two thousand years. It is literally the basis of western civilization. The truth is, you probably have heard of or been influenced by stories and parables in the bible for your whole life - many people who read it as adults for the first time find themselves going, oh shit. That’s where that’s from, huh. The trick is in the telling - choose a bible that’s written in a style that’s not going to put you to sleep. I’m a fan of the King James version, because it’s the first one i read completely, but it’s flowery. The English Standard version is the most accessible, in my opinion (it’s what my new barbie bible is, lmao) - go down to your local bookstore and have a flick through whatever copies they’ve got. Another resource I love is biblehub - you can compare the way different versions have written verses + heaps of other tools.
  • The Complete Dead Sea Scrolls are another primary source vital to the way we view the bible and the time of Christ in the modern era. This penguin version is the one I own and it’s both well translated and comprehensive.
  • Judas: the troubling history of the renegade apostle - 12/10 HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE AND EVERYONE INTERESTED IN THIS TOPIC.
  • Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth - there are a lot of biographical works about Jesus out there but this is the best one I’ve read. It’s all about examining context, baby - Judea in 4BC had no mass communication et al.
  • If you can get your hands on it, Biblica: The Bible Atlas is an amazing text. It is enormous - like, enormous, here is my copy:


I’ve linked all the titles here to their goodreads pages for anyone interested, and I’ve collated them into a shelf on my own goodreads if you want to bookmark it for a later date.

I was having a chat with @bzedan about how I somehow missed getting into things like Anne of Green Gables and Little House on the Prairie, despite, as B pointed out, being a voracious reader with an obsessive personality. And then I realised, I totally did have that—except with the Bible. Nerdy, pious little Zaf could usually be found with her nose in a Precious Moments Children’s Bible or one of the maaaaaany supplementary Bible-related history books my foster mom bought me.

Queen Esther was absolutely my Anne. I read her story when I was sad and wanted to feel happier. I had a surprisingly well-animated (same animators who did Swan Princess) version of it that came with an Esther fashion doll. I dressed up in a nightgown and a paper crown and pretended to be Esther walking into the king’s throne room without a summons, my hands trembling with imagined fear for my life as I waited to see if he would invite my approach or sentence me to death.

So yeah. Welcome to this view into who I am and why.
