Spirit of the Most High or Spirit of Bacchus?
Featured above is the Roman God of wine named Bacchus.
In the 3rd century BC, in Rome the dominant worship was of Bacchus whom the Greeks called Dionysus. Bacchus was known as the god of wine and intoxication, he was the son of Jupiter (Zeus) and Semele. Like the Greeks Dionysus, Bacchus was associated predominantly with female followers in which were known as maenads in the Greek. Their name maenads, who were also called Bassarids in Rome, their name means the "raving ones", in which these women were inspired by Bacchus into what they called, a state of ecstatic frenzy, through a combination of dancing and drunken intoxtication. Now when a person is drunk, they are to the point of impairment of physical and mental faculties, and are overcome by strong feeling or emotion. So when the maenads would get to this state of drunkeness, they would lose all self control, and begin shouting excitedly and speaking in tongues and would become engaged in uncontrolled sexual behaviour. These women were under the curse of Bacchus who through his spirit, would enter into their body and filled them with insanity, thus from this they felt called by him to become worshippers and priestess. So these maenads, were possessed by the spirit of Bacchus, and would travel with him from Thrace to mainland Greece in his quest for the recognition of his divinity. Whenever he came into contact with young women, they would almost instantly feel his spirit and would engage in practicing not only the closed rites, but would also take up the dances.
After the death of Bacchus, in the third century BCE, when an Asia Minor city wanted to create a maenadic cult of Bacchus, the Delphic Oracle bid them to send to Thebes for both instruction and three professional maenads, stating, “Go to the holy plain of Thebe so that you may get maenads who are from the family of Ino, daughter of Cadmus. They will give to you both the rites and good practices, and they will establish dance groups (thiasoi) of Bacchus (Dionysus) in your city.” So the maenads would train other women in a city, on how to participate in the rites of Bacchus and to take on leadership roles. So on each Sun-day in Rome, the Maenads would begin worship service in honor of Bacchus by dancing to the sound of loud music and crashing cymbals. They whirled and screamed and shouted and spoke in tongues, and became drunk and incited with one another to greater and greater ecstasy. The goal was to achieve a state of enthusiasm in which the celebrants’ souls were temporarily freed from their earthly bodies and were able to filled with the spirit of Bacchus within them. They would eat raw flesh and rip animals to shreds and murder men and children while participating in such rites unto Bacchus. Later in time, they begin to invite the men to participate into having origies unto Bacchus. After they would begin to worship Bacchus, in which in order order to get the spirit of Bacchus to inhabit the men's bodies as well, the maenads would play musical instruments, and at the sound of the music the men state of mind became intoxicated as they were filled with the spirit of Bacchus. When the music stopped, the dancing and singing and praising would stop, because the music is what channel the Spirit of Bacchus to arouse them into a frenzy.
Now after knowing this information, people should ask themselves "when the women and men in my church claim to get the holy ghost, how come its exactly like how ancient maenads and men would get the spirit of Bacchus?" Then they should go to their religious leader, and ask him to show them where is it written in the bible that the followers of Christ ever received the spirit of the Most High, and behaved as the women and men are doing now when they claim to have the holy ghost?

Question: What do we know?
1 John 4:6 - We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
FYI: By doing research, we should be able to determine if whether or not the behaviors that the people manifest are of the Most High. We should be able to open up the bible and find the behaviors that people are manifesting written therein, and if they are not found written in the bible, then we should question who ordained or authorized such behaviors to be acceptable. By having this mindset and using the bible as the measuring tool in which we govern our lives by, then when we are in religious institutions, we should know who actually has the Spirit of the Most High, and who has the Spirit of Bacchus.
Spirit of Bacchus - Came as music would play, would cause them to scream and shout and whirl around and speak in tongues with no interpretor, all unto Bacchus. When someone is whirling around, that means they turning around rapidly and jumping around the place in certain motions. Its a state of mental confusion which causes some to hurl themselves and fall out whether they stand. Now tell me this is not what the people are doing today in these churches when they claim to have the Holy Ghost? The Roman Catholic Church just gave the Spirit of Bacchus another name and passed it down through seminary schools. How do you know this to be true, ask yourself what does music have to do with the Spirit of the Most High? Then ask yourself, how come the bible never promoted any form of music when a person became filled with the Spirit of the Most High? Then you going to know, that the spirit these people have in these churches is the spirit of Bacchus.
FYI: People are claiming to be followers and believers in Christ, so lets examine some things. 1 Peter 2:21 - For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: So here in this precept we learn that Christ left us an example in how we ought to live in the flesh and worship the Father, so lets see what happened when Christ was baptized and received the spirit, cause people claiming to be Christians which they say means Christ like. So lets see what was Christ like after getting the spirit of the Most High?
Question: When Christ was baptized, what happened?
Matthew 3:16 - And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
FYI: Now 2 Corinthians 4:13 teaches that we have the same spirit of faith, according as it is written in the bible, and according to how it is written in the bible, is how we are to believe. So if these people in these religious institutions are claiming to have the spirit of the Most High, how come when Christ was baptized no music was played? Why didn't Christ say I feel the Holy Ghost everybody get up and praise him? How come Christ didn't use music to heap the men into getting the spirit of the Father and make the people excited? Where did the scripture say Christ started bouncing and dancing and shouting and whirling around and passing out on the floor? How come when Christ was filled with the spirit, John didn't begin playing musical instruments to give off the sound of the Holy Ghost music?
FYI: Why didn't none of this happen, because the Spirit of the Most High is what Christ had, and the spirit of what the people have today is the Roman spirit of Bacchus which was given down unto them under the disguise of being the holy ghost, by the Roman Catholic Church. The people have been deceived into accepting the spirit of Bacchus, as being the spirit of the Most High which is truth. And because the spirit of Bacchus is an intoxicating demonic force, the people have no idea they are in error and worshipping Satan through Bacchus. Therefore, they continue to shout and scream and play music and get all excited and whirl around and jump around and pass out on the floor, thinking they have the Spirit of the Most High.
FYI: Ask yourself, how come no where in service did the prophets or apostles or Christ, ever in the midst of service say they feel the holy ghost presence, and then start playing music and acting like heathenistic fools. These people today don't have the spirit of the Most High, they have the spirit of Bacchus, aka Satan. And because the spirit of Bacchus is intoxicating, it feels one with pride and overtakes them, just like when a person is drunk, they are to the point of impairment of physical and mental faculties, and are overcome by strong feeling or emotion. In which this is how the maenads and the people of Greek and Rome became filled with the spirit of Bacchus. And what did it do unto them, it caused them to lose all self control, and begin shouting excitedly and speaking in tongues with no interpretators, and whirl and shout and scream, all to the excitement of music which kept up their arousal. So in order to continue this worship of Bacchus, the Roman Catholic Church needed a new name for it and its behaviours, so they called it the Holy Ghost, when the actual name of the Spirit of the Most High in the Hebrew is called the Ruwach. Satan was very clever when he came up with this deception to deceive the people into worshipping him.
Question: Is the spirit of the Most High something that hits you and then goes after it is done making you shout and scream and speak in tongues with no interpreator and fall out on the floor?
John 14:16 - And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
FYI: Now this is amazing, because the so called Christ followers known as christians, get the quote on quote the Holy Ghost by way of when the music is played and then leaves when the music stops. So how can they have the spirit of the Most High, if the spirit of the Most High abides within those who have it forever and doesn't cause one to do any of the behaviours in which they are doing when claiming to have the holy ghost? These folks have the spirit of Bacchus!
Question: What did the Most High do unto Bezaleel?
Exodus 31:3 - And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,
FYI: Now this is amazing also, because these people in these religious institutions are claiming to have been filled with the Spirit of the Most High. But yet, here the Most High fills Bezaleel with his spirit, and no music played, he didn't dance and shout and scream and whirl around and fall out on the floor or speak in tongues with no interpretor or jump around like he going into convulsions. Now how come this happens when the people are filled with the holy ghost? Simply because they have the spirit of Bacchus in which the Catholic Church disguised under the title of holy ghost to continue their worship of other gods. So the people don't have this information, in which if the Most High had filled them with his spirit, then they would have wisdom, understanding, and knowledge to discern whats of the Most High, and whats of Satan.
Question: What happen to the people on the day of Pentecost?
Acts 2:4 - And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
FYI: They all were filled with the Spirit of the Most High, so why didn't nobody break out with music and begin dancing and shouting and running back and forth? Why did the Spirit cause them to speak with other tongues, and not dance and run around and play music like today? Because they had the Spirit of the Most High, these folks in these religious institutions have the spirit of Bacchus.
Question: What is the Most High capable of doing to those who possess his spirit?
Jude 1:24 - Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
FYI: How is it that these people claiming to have the spirit of the Most High, but yet falling? Because they have the Spirit of Bacchus, if they were of the Most High and had his spirit, what would they know? Ecclesiastes 5:1 - Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil. They would know that they are commanded to keep their foot when they go into the house of the Most High, and would be more ready to be taught his word, then to jump around and scream and shout upon hearing music like some fools. They do this not even considering that they are doing evil, because why is it evil? Because its the spirit of Bacchus in which they have which is a demonic spirit Satan uses to deceive the people into worshipping him by.
Question: So we know what the spirit of Bacchus is about, can it cause one to become drunk not with strong drink?
Isaiah 29:9 - Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
FYI: The people who claiming to have the spirit of the Most High but actually have the spirit of Bacchus, are drunk without them even having to drink. This is what the spirit of Bacchus does, it causes one to become intoxicated mentally therefore they do the behaviour of one who is drunken. If a person isn't drunk, why would they be whirling and jumping and staggering around and falling and running all in place? If a person wasn't drunk, what would be the purpose of them screaming and shouting and saying things that no one understands? Now you can understand why the Most High says they are drunk but not with strong drink, cause these people are filled with the Spirit of Bacchus which is an intoxicating demonic spirit.
Question: How do we know if one has the spirit of the Most High?
Galatians 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Galatians 5:23 - Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
FYI: This is how we know as person has the spirit of the Most High, when they exemplify the characteristics of the fruit of the spirit, in their day to day living. Nowhere does the bible say in order to know if a person has been filled with the Spirit of the Most High, they will play music of the spirit and begin dancing and shouting and screaming and speaking in tongues with no interpretors and whirling around and jumping and passing out. That's not the spirit of the Most High, that's the Roman spirit of Bacchus in which the Satan through the Roman Catholic Church, have tricked the people into beliving is the Spirit of the Most High.
