Quotes on Love and Jesus by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

The books I would recommend most by Dostoyevsky are The Idiot and The Brothers Karamazov.

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“I believe there is no one deeper, lovelier, more sympathetic and more perfect than Jesus.”

“Even those who have renounced Christianity and attack it, in their inmost being still follow the Christian ideal, for hitherto neither their subtlety nor the ardor of their hearts has been able to create a higher ideal of man and of virtue than the ideal given by Christ.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky 

“Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once thou perceive this, thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it: until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“If you love all things, you will also attain the divine mystery that is in all things. For then your ability to perceive the truth will grow every day, and your mind will open itself to an all-embracing love.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“God has such gladness every time he sees from heaven that a sinner is praying to Him with all his heart, as a mother has when she sees the first smile on her baby’s face.”

— Fyodor Dostoevsky 

“To love another person is to see them as God intended them to be.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“The awful thing is that beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and the devil are fighting there and the battlefield is the heart of man.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky 

“Every blade of grass, every insect, ant, and golden bee, all so amazingly know their path, though they have not intelligence, they bear witness to the mystery of God and continually accomplish it themselves.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky  

“Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“There is no sin, and there can be no sin on all the earth , which the Lord will not forgive to the truly repentant! Man cannot commit a sin so great as to exhaust the infinite love of God. Can there be a sin which could exceed the love of God?”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“It’s not miracles that generate faith, but faith that generates miracles.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“By the experience of active love. Strive to love your neighbour actively and indefatigably. In as far as you advance in love you will grow surer of the reality of God and of the immortality of your soul. If you attain to perfect self-forgetfulness in the love of your neighbour, then you will believe without doubt, and no doubt can possibly enter your soul. This has been tried. This is certain.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Love is such a priceless treasure that you can buy the whole world with it, and redeem not only your own but other people’s sins. Go, and do not be afraid.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Only the heart knows how to find what is precious.”

— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Do you know I don’t know how one can walk by a tree and not be happy at the sight of it? How can one talk to a man and not be happy in loving him! Oh, it’s only that I’m not able to express it… And what beautiful things there are at every step, that even the most hopeless man must feel to be beautiful! Look at a child! Look at God’s sunrise! Look at the grass, how it grows! Look at the eyes that gaze at you and love you!”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“When I look back on my past and think how much time I wasted on nothing, how much time has been lost in futilities, errors, laziness, incapacity to live; how little I appreciated it, how many times I sinned against my heart and soul-then my heart bleeds. Life is a gift, life is happiness, every minute can be an eternity of happiness.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Whoever has experienced the power and the unrestrained ability to humiliate another human being automatically loses his own sensations. Tyranny is a habit, it has its own organic life, it develops finally into a disease. The habit can kill and coarsen the very best man or woman to the level of a beast. Blood and power intoxicate… the return of the human dignity, repentance and regeneration becomes almost impossible.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Above all, avoid lies, all lies, especially the lie to yourself. Keep watch on your own lie and examine it every hour, every minute. And avoid contempt, both of others and of yourself: what seems bad to you in yourself is purified by the very fact that you have noticed it in yourself. And avoid fear, though fear is simply the consequence of every lie. Never be frightened at your own faintheartedness in attaining love, and meanwhile do not even be very frightened by your own bad acts.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and, in order to divert himself, having no love in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest forms of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal. And it all comes from lying – lying to others and to yourself.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

“Pray to God for gladness. Be glad as children, as the birds of heaven. And let not the sin of men confound you in your doings. Fear not that it will wear away your work and hinder its being accomplished. Do not say, ‘Sin is mighty, wickedness is mighty, evil environment is mighty, and we are lonely and helpless, and evil environment is wearing us away and hindering our good work from being done.’ Fly from that dejection, children!”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky

Paganism, Mythology, and their Connections to the Bible

Chariot of Poseidon, Greco-Roman mosaic, around 2nd Century A.D.

I’ve often feared being ridiculed over topics like this, but I believe it’s all based on history and more people need to be aware of what’s happening.  I’ve collected a lot of this information in pieces and put them on shelves in the back of my mind for years but wasn’t really sure how to piece it all together, but I really do believe at this point everything below is actually based in reality. 

Tartarus and the Titans

Ancient Sumerian texts describe the Anunnaki as “those who from heaven to Earth came”. These fallen ones are now chained up in Tartarus and awaiting judgment for mating with human women (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 1:6, 1 Enoch 6-9), which created offspring called the Nephilim.  According to the Book of Enoch, the angel Urial is watching over Taratus where 200 of the fallen angels are imprisoned until judgement. This all connects to mythology the writings of Plato, Hesiod, Virgil, and Homer where we read of the Titans being imprisoned in Tartarus, an area in Hades. So the Anunnaki = Titans = Fallen Angels.

“For God did not spare the angels having sinned, but having cast them down to Tartarus, in chains of gloomy darkness, delivered them, being kept for judgment.”
2 Peter 2:4

“And the angels who did not stay within their own position of authority, but left their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains under gloomy darkness until the judgment of the great day.”
Jude 1:6

“Aenaes and the Sybil in Hades,” by Jan Bruegel The Elder, 1598.

Nimrod, the Deluge, and the Tower of Babel

Paganism and mythology from around the world seem to all point back to Nimrod, a “mighty hunter” who we find in Genesis 10:8-9 with the Tower of Babel he built right after in Genesis 11:1-9.

“The Building of the Tower of Babel,” by Hendrick van Cleve, (1525-1589).

When God confused the languages and people were scattered around the world, they took the same pagan story with them, along with the same flood story. The Epic of Gilgamesh (Nimrod) glorified the fallen angels (Anunnaki) as heroes and the Biblical story then corrected it and showed they were the enemies who disobeyed God, mated with human women creating the Nephilim as offspring (Genesis 6:4), and taught man sorcery, how make weapons, etc… Plato’s dialogue “Critias” also talks about the Olympian god Poseidon mating with a mortal woman named Cleito on the island Atlantis, who then gave birth to Atlas. Here we can see the genealogy connections making Atlas, Noah’s great, great, great, grandson!

Athanasius Kircher’s map of Atlantis, 1665.

Paganism in the Old Testament

In Judges we see the Israelite serving the idols honoring Baal (Nimrod) and Ashtoreth (Semiramis). Here are people weeping for Tammuz in Ezekiel. In Jeremiah we find others burning incense and giving offerings to the queen of heaven (Semiramis). More on her here. All the idol worship in the Old Testament seems to be pointing to the false Babylonian pagan system that spread all around the world after Nimrod’s Tower of Babel (Genesis 11:1-9).

Some of the mythologies do differ from one another and take off into stories of fiction, but I suggest they are all based on real individuals, real events. After being passed down with oral tradition from generation to generation, the waters have been mucked up a bit, exaggerations made I’m sure, but something major happened for these similar stories to have traveled all around the world and be told in such a similar way.

(For more, check out the article’s “Babylon and Rome,” by F.F. Bruce and “Monotheism as the Predecessor of Polytheism in Sumerian Religion” by Steven Langdon.)

Benevolent Aliens, or Demonic Souls of the Nephilim?

The fallen angels made an inverse of the true Trinity of God with a false pagan beast system (sun god, moon goddess, pagan messiah). Remember, they knew who the true God was before they were cast down from Heaven, so they set this up to confuse people, setting it all up for the final deception. I am concerned what their claims of origin and purpose might be. Are they benevolent aliens that came from another planet in outer space coming to help bring peace to a troubled world? Or are they the demonic souls of the Nephilim who have been here, hidden in plain sight this entire time in a realm we just can’t see clearly yet?

“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.”
Matthew 24:24

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.”
2 Corinthians 11:14

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore take up the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you will be able to stand your ground, and having done everything, to stand.”
Ephesians 6:12-13

“The Fall of the Rebel Angels,” Luca Giorano, 1666.

Occult Symbology

The upper level Freemason’s (yes, I’m going there) appear to honor Nimrod (Belus) as their original Grand Master Mason, the architect of Babylon. Some have pointed out the similarities to Nimrod and Lucifer as Isaiah 14:4 does mention a “king of Babylon” before the “morning star” passage in Isaiah 14:12. It’s also strange to call Satan “son of the dawn,” since he’s not the son of anyone. That’s why some suggest it’s talking about Nimrod.  There is much debate on this as the “morning star” also alludes to the planet Venus in mythologies. 

Maybe Nimrod was possessed by Satan so in a sense they were the same person for a time, I’m honestly not sure, I have more questions than answers.  My main point is to draw the focus on what some of these pagan occultists might believe, even if it might not be true. They are certainly deceived on many points. 

We also see Jesus speak of seeing Satan “fall like lightning from heaven” in Luke 10:18 and Satan being thrown to the Earth with his angels in Revelation 12:9, so there are connections with the Isaiah 14 Lucifer passages and Satan also.

The prostitute of Babylon in Revelation 17:1-6 also appears to allude to Semiramis/Ishtar, the source of pagan goddess worship, the pagan “Queen of Heaven.”  She and Nimrod are part of the false trinity pagan system God promises to destroy in the end; Babylon will be fall (Revelation 18).

We really do find a lot of Masonic occult symbology all over Washington, D.C. architecture, also Hollywood film and music.  Some suggest this is how they do occult magick, “hidden in plain sight.” The Statue of Liberty does seem to be representing the queen of Babylon/Semiramis holding Nimrod’s torch of illumination, the back of the US dollar puts this right in our faces.

Many have become apathetic from hearing about the Freemasons and “Illuminati” over the past 30 years from tin foil hats and tacky websites but I believe they have mocked a lot of these ideas to keep people away from investigating for fear of ridicule and rejection (hence my opening statement).  Herd instinct is a deeply ingrained psychological survival mechanism in humans and animals because if the group rejects you and you have to fend for yourself in the wilderness, that is an almost certain death sentence.

It’s going to be important in the near future to understand this beast system to not be deceived when the false messiah is put on world display; Nimrod reborn who will promise world peace and unity through a New World Order. 

Onward, Christian Soldiers

Many have (and will) suffer and be killed in this battle, but we know the ending of this story; Babylon will be destroyed (Rev 17-18) and Satan will be thrown into the lake of fire (Rev 20:10).  Then Eden will be restored to God’s people where there will be no more death, no more sorrow, no more tears (Rev 21:4); forever and ever. 

“The Lion of St. Mark, Vittore Carpaccio, 1516.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
John 14:6

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Romans 10:9
