As many of you are aware, this ministry has been preaching
for some time now that the ONE WORLD CHURCH of the Roman Beast was going to
figure out a way to get ALL churches to go along with her Satanic agenda. I
have shared numerous facts proving the prophecy of the Lord is 100% certain in
every respect. For those of you seeking a review of these particular facts, see
these Newsletters in the Truth Provided Newsletter archives. You can access it
in the "Current" section of the website menu.
For many years the elect have known of this satanic agenda.
That's one of the main reasons the Devil hates the "Remnant of her seed" in
Revelation 12:17 so much. We UNDERSTAND PROPHECY and we are not quite about
it. That is also why this small
gathering of faithful have become the target of Rome. The Vatican will use
everything from propaganda that states the only true Church of Jesus Christ on
Earth is a cult, to out and out death threats against those of us that do
preach this truth. You can review some of the facts I refer to in these
newsletters. (Some of the Newsletters have been escalated to actual web pages
due to increased activity)
The Vatican in Rome has been solely responsible for allowing
Satan to direct it's every move in the last day agenda we see unfolding right
before our very eyes. Everywhere you turn you see evidence of Rome
"suggesting" to the Christian world its definition of Christian
doctrine. Even if it means to deny Biblical jurisprudence! They do this
subliminally now! Whenever you see a disaster reported on the News media you
see the cameraman making special care to zoom in on those people making the
Roman sign of the cross of Baal upon their bodies. Priests appear on sitcom
after sitcom as the norm for "Christian" suggestions in times of
sadness as well as joy. TV ministers have Catholic priests on the platform as
they preach. Pagan Catholic rituals are honored by almost every person alive in
church as well as home, work and play. The media as well as every Catholic and
non-Catholic alike use the term "Holy father" when speaking of the
Pope regardless of the fact that it is a blasphemous title. Jesus Himself used
that term FOR HIS HEAVENLY FATHER in John chapter 17. Christmas, Lent, Easter. Halloween
as well as numerous other pagan high days are openly embraced WITHOUT SHAME
mind you by almost every Christian alive as the norm in celebration. Rome has
literally taken over! They have wooed the Christian churches with their
"convenient" and Pagan ways the world over, and as is always the case, when it
is gradually brought upon the church, it become acceptable simply because if
sheer repartition, and at the same time those that are fighting against it
simply give up because they feel the battle can never be won.
Fact is folks, this satanic agenda was manufactured for the
end result we have all been awaiting as true Christians. It is no longer
considered un-Christ like when a so called Protestant embraces the teachings of
the Vatican as true Christian doctrine. Everything from the so called immortal
soul doctrines to the lie about a secret rapture and a seven year trib is
accepted by all. Why is this? Slowly but surely the Whore of Babylon has been
chipping away at the hearts of all Christendom. We have all been so used to
doing things our parents taught us, and their parents taught them, that many of
us just trust that it's safe Christian activities, practices, or
doctrines. However, it is still possible to open a Bible and find the
truth, and in so doing many do leave the errors of Rome. Yet again, we see the
Roman Beast has been trying to cover that possibility as well. The Vatican has
been instrumental in re-writing the Word of God to such an extent that we
actually see history repeating itself in regards to the arrival of Messiah. We
see the believers of this world looking to the return of Christ in the very
same error filled manner the believers of 2000 years ago did. What am I talking
Many of you that receive my newsletters or listen to my
broadcasts are aware of my "Bogus Bible" page. In it you will see
two major Bible versions exposed as altered by Roman Theologin's. There are many
more than just "two" versions altered of course. I just chose
to expose the NIV and NASB on that page simply because of their popularity. All
the people that read and trust these altered Bibles are allowing Satan to do to
them that he did to the Pharisee's 2000 years ago. Back then, the Pharisee's
misunderstood the prophecies of our Lord's arrival as Messiah. They thought
Messiah was to arrive and take over the Roman Government and bring peace to the
Jewish nation and rule on Earth from Jerusalem. This is the main reason Herod
had all the babies killed that were born around the time Christ was born.
I like the way Ellen White describes what went down that day.
Soldiers were at once sent to Bethlehem, with orders to put
to death all the children of two years and under. The quiet homes of the city
of David witnessed those scenes of horror that, six hundred years before, had
been opened to the prophet. "In Ramah was there a voice heard,
lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children,
and would not be comforted, because they are not."
This calamity the Jews had brought upon themselves. If
they had been walking in faithfulness and humility before God, He would in a
signal manner have made the wrath of the king harmless to them. But they had
separated themselves from God by their sins, and had rejected the Holy Spirit,
which was their only shield. They had not studied the Scriptures with a desire
to conform to the will of God. They had searched for prophecies which could be
interpreted to exalt themselves, and to show how God despised all other
nations. It was their proud boast that the Messiah was to come as a king,
conquering His enemies, and treading down the heathen in His wrath. Thus they
had excited the hatred of their rulers. Through their misrepresentation of
Christ's mission, Satan had purposed to compass the destruction of the Saviour;
but instead of this, it returned upon their own heads. -Desire of Ages
Herod believed that this one he called "King of the
Jews" was a threat to his rule. So, he used his powers to try and prevent
His arrival. IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN TODAY!!!
In today's world you have a large amount of people claiming
to be Christians preaching that when Jesus arrives HE WILL REIGN ON EARTH 1000
YEARS AND TAKE OVER ALL THE GOVERNMENTS TO BRING PEACE. Why do they believe
this easy to expose lie? Because they are holding a bogus bible in their hands
THINKING it is the Word of God. And at the same time they are listening to
their Roman taught preachers twisting the Truth so as to tickle their ears. On
my "1000 years" page I share the Biblical
FACTS about where we will be before, during, and after the 1000 years prophecy
speaks of. But if you look at that page with an NIV, NASB, or RSV Bible, you
will find numerous verses appear to be either missing or re-written. I use the
KJV Bible for a reason folks. Not only is it the only Bible that matches up
with the Dead Sea Scrolls, it is also the Bible Rome hates with a passion. In
fact I have a copy of the original preface of the King James bible on my site
in the Warnings section of the website. It speaks of the Popes of Rome in a way
that no doubt angers them. Is it any wonder the new versions of the KJV Bible
never carry that preface?
The agenda of Satan is easily known my friends if you just
look at his past actions. Two thousand years ago he needed to get the
government in such a place that would allow him to attack Jesus Christ
personally. Even the Jews were used by Satan in a major way to get the
government involved. And now we see this happening today. It appears everyone
is believing now that when Jesus comes He will take over the governments of
this world and put an end to their evil rule, and then reign on Earth 1000
years. And regardless of the fact that this is a false prophetic utterance, the
government doesn't like that idea at all! You see, the government can't
decipher prophecy either!
The error filled preachers and teachers are doing the exact
same thing the Pharisee's did. They are getting the men in power to look upon
this second coming of Christ as a major threat to them. And in their rage
filled fervor of activity, they are making plans to STOP any and all preaching's,
teachings, and conversations of same.
Since the devil has been so successful in getting ALL the
religions into a massive group hug by using the Pope of today, he can now use
this ecumenical movement to his advantage. In the first newsletter I mentioned
earlier entitle "United State Church of America," you will find that
the Vatican has been VERY busy behind closed doors making sure "certain
laws" were being lobbied and passed that would directly effect every
single Christian the world over.
I received an article quite a while back that will no doubt
shock many of you to the core! Hopefully this will also awaken many of you out
of a spiritual slumber. This article proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we
are indeed on the very threshold of the enforcement of the MARK OF THE BEAST.
In "The Trumpet Vol 9, Issue 6 Nov/Dec 2001"
publication it is stated, "The most prominent and successful certified
public accountant firm in the nation today, that specializes in keeping
churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying
to the pastors of America that they not only have to be "ordained by
God, but also the IRS."
That's right, the UNITED STATES CHURCH OF AMERICA seems to
have officially opened for business! In this article by Dr Greg J. Dixon it is
reported that in order to be able to keep your 501C3 tax free status as a
church. You not only have to AGREE that all other churches INCLUDING
NON-CHRISTIAN CHURCHES are equal to yours in every way. But you must also agree
to teach and embrace the SACRAMENTS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC VATICAN as Christian
requirements in order to receive tax free status.
Before getting to the article, let me say this. In it you
will see just how the Roman Catholic Church has not only infiltrated, but has
taken complete control of the IRS. This has been done for the sole purpose
of stopping the mouths of those churches that will not go along with the
Vatican in Rome. The government of the USA is showing the birth pangs of
Herodian theology here. They are running scared "thinking" those
twisted sermons and misunderstood prophecies of all those bogus Bible preachers
are true. They think Jesus is coming to "reign on Earth" and take
away their ability to bilk billions out of your pockets on a weekly basis. So,
they are making plans just like Herod in his day to ensure their reign goes
undisturbed. And we owe it all to those preachers, pastors, priests, ministers,
and lay people grasping the bogus Bibles of the Roman Catholic printing
presses. Our own religious leaders have given Satan a major opportunity
to seal the fates of billions by their UNinspired sermons. I honestly believe
this is one major method the beast in Rome will use to enforce its mark in the
very near future. Many churches will no doubt fall for this ploy of Rome and go
along with the Roman IRS and sign away their religious freedoms so as to
"stay in the business" of making money. That's what happens when
preachers look at their ministerial duties as a CAREER, instead of a CALLING!
However, there ARE those that will not go along. The article is a detailed
description of one small church that did just that.
As for those that do go along with the Vatican sanctioned IRS
requirements. Are you wondering how these so called Christian preachers see no
wrong in yoking with unbelievers? Well it has to do with some major religious
leaders that have been recorded declaring JESUS IS NO LONGER NECESSARY to gain
Heaven. I did a radio broadcast about that back on February 29, 2004.
For the documented facts, read the next three newsletters I wrote some time
Or you can just go to my "Rome says Jesus not needed" page in
the RCC Exposed section of the website. I cover all of it there.
By the way, please pray for those church leaders that
have started churches and have gone the unbiblical route of incorporating their
churches as a business to receive the "TAX FREE" status of the 501C3.
Those churches will soon be attacked by the IRS and forced into signing away
their religious freedoms so as to go along with ROME. And those that don't, will
have their tax free status removed immediately, which by the way will be
retroactive as well. That means if they were a church 20 years with tax free
status, then they owe those back taxes PLUS PENALTIES AND INTEREST! That
amounts to MILLIONS and that will effectively shut them down as well as put the
Pastors and board members in financial disaster status immediately. And you
don't have to be a huge church for it to mushroom. We all know how the IRS
compounds interest and how they multiply their penalties in massive amounts. 20
years worth of penalties. Interest, and back taxes, not to mention the
special excise taxes for getting "caught" as the IRS will put it, even small
churches will be hit with such a sum that will effectively wipe them out.
Please, I implore you to read the ENTIRE article! There are many
twists and turns within it! You WILL be shocked!
TRUMPET vol. IX - Issue 6 NOV/DEC 2001
Revenue Service: PASTORS MUST BE ORDAINED BY THE IRS
by Dr. Greg J. Dixon
prominent and successful certified public accountant firm in the nation today,
that specializes in keeping churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue
Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors of America that they not only have
to be "ordained by God, but also the IRS."
They also say that the IRS is dictating terms to the churches by declaring in
clear and no uncertain terms that, "The government doesn't want your
Bible, they want your checkbook!" In seminars all over the US,
Chitwood and Chitwood of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is repeating this startling
announcement to pastors and church leaders. Without so much as a blush, Michael
Chitwood, the main speaker, says, besides the above quotes, "Pastor, if
you don't get your house in order, get ready, you are going to have a jail
ministry" as he practically screams out to those present as to what
pastors and church leaders must do to avoid jail time and the confiscation of
church property by the federal government.
Sounds like a nice guy eh? Please understand the Government
must have a bold and intimidating character at the forefront of a department
such as this. So expect this kind of boisterous talk. Like the huge Roman
columns in Washington, this is done to intimidate. Nothing more, nothing less.
the pastor his job description, which is based on the Roman Catholic model of
worship and polity, the IRS is demanding many other things that are clearly
designed to make the IRS Commissioner the new head of the churches in America.
Some of these demands are as follows:
- The church must collect
a Federal ID (Social Security) number from visiting evangelists, missionaries,
preachers and singers before they invite them to the pulpit.
- They must give a Form
1099 to any minister who receives up to $600 in a years time, which includes
- If the ID is not
received, the church leaders must withhold a jeopardy assessment of 39% on the
spot and send it to the IRS.
- They must agree to the
IRS definition of benevolence.
- They cannot deal in cash
at any level, but must deposit all offerings into a checking account and write
checks for every purpose.
- This means, of course,
that the church, in order to conduct its ministry, has to have an Employer
Identification Number which must be provided by the IRS by filing Form SS-4
which a true New Testament church could never do and remain obedient to her
Lord. In fact, church leaders would have to misrepresent the church as a
religious organization rather than a N.T. Church to do so.
- Other things that
pastors and church leaders are required to do are to be an informer against
their members and also to preach only IRS prescribed sermons.
Also, all fund raising
material must be submitted to the IRS for their approval.
description for pastors is a list of nine specific sacerdotal duties
which again is a Roman Catholic definition meaning sacred.
Understand, the IRS is the one using these Roman Catholic
terms in their definitions of job description duties of pastors. This word,
"sacerdotal" alone should cause a red flag to spring up in true Christian
preachers the world over. But seeing how Rome has been busy infiltrating their
churches, as well as educational institutions that graduate thousands of student
ministers annually, they simply don't see the tell tale signs of the Roman
church teaches that these sacraments, when administered by a priest, are
essential to ones salvation. This is totally opposite to the Bible definition
which states that baptism and communion are memorials of the death, burial and
resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that they follow salvation. The nine
duties (that the IRS imposes) are:
the Eucharist (the Catholic sacrament of communion)
of church affairs
conducting of worship services.
Before moving on. Again the IRS is using Latin, or Roman
Catholic terminology here. The word "Eucharist" is native to Roman Catholic
Baal worship. It's the title that preaches a solar disk shaped piece of bread
is truly the body and blood of Jesus Christ. That theology started first in
Babylon when they would make small wafers shaped like the Sun to be eaten as
food and considered truly to be Baal incarnate. Even the etching of the Sun on
one side, and the initials IHS (for Isis, Horus, and Seb) on the Pagan wafer
are also seen on the Roman Catholic wafer!
The article continues.
If the pastor
does a substantial number of these things, he will receive very lucrative tax
breaks. This is in clear violation of the scriptures concerning the doctrine of
the Nicolaitanes which the Lord Jesus said that He hates (Rev. 2:6, 2:15). It
is the setting up of a privileged class of clergy with benefits from the state
that lay members do not receive. Others who minister to the church in the area
of music, youth, children, education and other areas of responsibility don't
consistent with what officials of the IRS told Attorney David Gibbs of the
Christian Law Association (CLA) in 1984 when they said that their definition of
church is "once per week adult worship." They said that they did not
consider such ministries as Sunday school, Christian school, busses, youth camp,
vacation Bible school, nursing home, etc., to fall within their definition of
the word "church". This Gibbs/IRS meeting took place in Washington,
DC at the time that the so called champion of Christian liberty was hammering
out a compromise with the Dole Committee (Sen. Bob Dole-R-Kansas) in the US
Senate to bring the churches into compliance with the FICA tax (social
security) laws. This was the deal that would eventually cause the raid and
seizure of the Baptist Temple 17 years later. It's too bad that Gibbs didn't
sound the alarm at that time and call the Bible believing pastors together for
a summit meeting to map out a strategy that could have possibly saved our
churches and ministries. The unregistered church pastors tried, but
unfortunately our words fell on deaf ears. The so called "big"
preachers were too busy receiving their tax deductible gifts and building their
empires to be concerned over the future of God's work. Now the enemies of
Christ have sprung the trap and it is too late.
These requirements should be intolerable enough by just the fact that the IRS
would even dare to suggest duties for pastors, but to impose under the penalty
of imprisonment and confiscation of property the same responsibilities of Roman
Catholic priests is nothing short of naked tyranny. Obviously, the inquisition
has returned and the pastors and churches of America are not even aware that it
has arrived. The raid and seizure of the property of the Baptist Temple is the
direct result of the pastors and church refusing to bow down to this new wave
of Catholic terror that has come upon our land. The issue in the Baptist Temple
case isn't taxes as the IRS, with the help of the media, has led the people of
Indianapolis and nation to believe. The issue is very simple. Will the churches
of America bow down to the IRS in violation of the first commandment,
"Thou shalt have no other gods before me," or will they bow down to
the Lord Jesus Christ? Our Lord said, "No man can serve two masters: for
either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the
one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matthew
6:24). The purge is now on as we hear of churches and ministries being closed
on a regular basis. But there is still no evidence that the pastors have
awakened from their stupor.
And I don't expect they will soon either. Just like they
clammed up when Roe -vs- Wade was pushing their agenda. They clammed up when
the Homosexuals in Canada decided to seek laws to have preachers jailed for
using Bibles to help warn them. They clammed up when Rome was caught molesting
thousands of their own children! They clammed up when laws were passed allowing
thousands of pedophiles to be released into the community as regular citizens!
And they're even clamming up now when Rome's homosexual agenda is being enacted
in California! So don't expect the so called Religious leaders to do thing one
people! Look at them on the TV and see how they love their Armani suits, their
Gucci shoes, their Rolex watches, their Mercedes Benz, and their million
dollar mansions. Do you actually think they will say STOP PERSECUTING THOSE
CHRISTIANS to the IRS? If they do ALL their tax rewards will not only
disappear, they will also have to deal with the back taxes and penalties to boot!
Truth is folks! THEY ARE HIRELINGS! They don't love the flock! They run off at
the first sign of danger!
requirements for churches are beyond atrocious. They are five in number:
- Medical emergencies
- and Utilities
The church cannot
help with transportation or auto repairs and a myriad of other things that
churches have historically done on a regular basis. The church cannot make
loans to the pastor, members, or others which churches have always done.
Obviously, they want to make sure that the money lenders get their profits even
from the poor. Can you imagine the government of the US limiting a church as to
its duties in regarding charitable activity? There is no subject in the Bible
that is nearer to the heart of God than charity. According to the apostle
James, it is the test of pure religion (James 1:27). Paul the Apostle declares
that charity is of higher value even than preaching and sacrifice (I Cor.
13:1-3). For the churches to debase such a high and noble service to Christ by
submitting its administration to the wicked IRS is beyond belief. How will the
preachers of America give an account of caving into this coercion by an abusive
Bush administration who is continuing with the policies of those before him? How
will church leaders face the Lord Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ when He
asks them why they violated His clear commands concerning alms giving? He said,
"Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them:
otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when
thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do
in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men, Verily I
say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy
left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and
thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly." But
now the churches are required to get the permission of the IRS before helping
someone other than in the manner and purpose that they approve. Then records
will have to be kept for the IRS so that the publicans can make sure that the
church is in fact following their guidelines. And, of course, they expect
church leaders to report this alms giving to the IRS so that they can even
gouge the poor for more tribute. And all of this so the churches can keep their
tax exemption and the people can get their precious tax deductions for their
tithes and gifts. As James Dobson's organization said when challenged,
"It's just good stewardship." Thievery, good stewardship? How
It may be that
the churches have now gone too far. When they begin building their dynasties on
the backs of the poor our Lord, no doubt, will be swift in His removal of their
candlestick. He said to the church at Ephesus, "Remember therefore from
whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works: or else I will come
unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except
thou repent" (Rev. 2:5).
Now for the real strange stuff! What your about to learn now
is very graphic, so be ready for it. If this doesn't prove to you the Vatican
has 100% over this situation, nothing will! Only a willfully blind person will
miss these facts.
All Churches Now
Required to Join IRS Super Church
Two other developments concerning IRS control of churches has risen recently
that should literally send shock waves through the religious community. First,
while the churches are arguing doctrinal positions among themselves, and won't
even spit on each other for the most part, the IRS has now developed its own
super church. Independent Baptists in particular pride themselves in their
anti-ecumenism. No fundamentalist preacher worth his salt would be caught dead at
the local church federation meeting where he has to rub shoulders with a
charismatic or liberal preacher. However, they don't think twice about paying a
large fee to go to a Chitwood or CLA seminar and sit next to one of these
religious outcasts to learn how to be a good IRS approved church and pastor.
It is now a fact that in order to get and keep the tax-exempt status a church
must agree that all religions are equal. The new Application for Recognition of
Exemption Form 1023 Schedule A for Churches (Rev. September 1998) demands a
declaration to this effect with the following words at point #3: "Does the
organization require prospective members to renounce other religious beliefs or
their membership in other churches or religious orders to become members? Yes__
No__. If "Yes," describe."
It doesn't take much intelligence to figure out where they are going with this.
In order to be considered a legal church (tax exempt) in America, the church or
religious organization will have to declare that all religions are equal. They
will also have to declare that they do not believe that their doctrinal
position only results in converts to their faith having eternal life. They must
renounce this narrow inclusivist position. Maybe we now know why Billy Graham,
Robert Schuller, Pat Robertson, and other TV preachers have been making such
fuzzy remarks about adherents of other religions, though sincere, going to
heaven without receiving Christ.
Again, I implore you to check out my February 29, 2004 Radio broadcast
entitled, "Pope and others declare Jesus not needed!" I share documented
statements that Billy Graham, Robert Shuller, Pope John Paul, and Cardinal
Francis Arinze make concerning Jesus and salvation. And by the way, Cardinal
Arinze is slated as the possible next Pope. He is the one spear heading the
ecumenical charge for Rome.
In that tax exemption is government subsidy,
according to the Supreme Court in the Bob Jones University case, it is now
clear that the US government will not support any religion that clings to the
narrow minded belief that salvation is in Jesus Christ alone. Remember?
"Come Shekels, Come Shackles." The world church isn't coming; it is
already here, and the preachers don't have a clue as they go merrily along hand
in hand with the Great Harlot to the wedding with the anti-Christ. (Rev. 17).
For more evidence regarding the One World church that
officially started on June 26, 2000 and is headed up by none other then John
Paul II, see my July 04, 2000 Newsletter entitled, The One World Church Officially
will be shocked as to what's next!
Government Through the IRS Outlaws Preaching on Second Coming of Christ
One of the reasons the IRS gave to Texe Marr's Living Truth Ministries for
removing their tax exempt status is as follows: "Much of the material you
disseminate promises to address possible conspiracies or threats, either from
individuals, groups or various agencies, against Christianity, freedom or other
rights. This is evident from a review of your newsletters and order forms. The
titles and promotional materials are designed to sensationalize and grab the
readers attention. They usually imply that the works will expose certain
prominent groups, individuals, politicians or government agencies as being part
of or linked to some threat or conspiracy." One of the titles that the IRS
gave as an example included "Bible Prophecy and The Conspiracy."
Any grade school child in Sunday School knows that you can't teach or write on
Bible prophecy without dealing with the second coming of Jesus Christ. But just
as the Russian pastors under communism were forbidden to speak on this subject,
we are now coming to the same place in our beloved land. It is obvious that if
one believes in the literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ that they will be
considered a domestic terrorist. In that the Lord Jesus will destroy wicked
government upon His return in great glory and break the back of Gentile world
rule, this message isn't popular with the in-for-hells and the
high-heeled-belles that run our country today. Of course, they don't believe
that He is coming, but they believe that we who do will be involved in what
they call self-fulfilled prophecies and try to hasten His coming by blowing up
everything in sight. Further evidence of this type of anti-Christ thinking
surfaced recently when a brochure put out by the FBI in Phoenix, Arizona, named
"potential domestic terrorists" that law enforcement should be aware
of. One of those groups is "Doomsday/Cult-Type." Obviously, this
would include all Bible believing preachers and churches in America. We not
only believe that there will be a literal doomsday, we believe that the Lord Jesus
Christ will bring the doom when He comes (Rev. 6:12-17). It won't do any good
to claim that your church is not a "cult". The IRS definition fits
the average Bible believing church to a tee.
It's like I said earlier. The government doesn't believe Jesus
is coming back, but they do believe we believe it. And they also believe
Christians are crazy enough to hasten His coming by attacking them. How insane
is that? True Christians already know the prophecies WILL fulfill whether we
try to get involved or not. The Lord is not a liar! With that said, were you
aware that the Vatican itself doesn't believe in the second coming? Not to long
ago they too put out articles in the Italian press telling the people not to
worry that the end was not near!
POPE ASSURES ITALIANS THE END IS NOT YET NIGH.
To the dismay of Seven Day Adventist's... but to the relief of everyone else,
the Pope has declared that the world is not about to end. -From The Times,
24 April 1998, by Richard Owen in Rome] http://www.zetatalk.com/theword/tword12i.htm
- 1 Thessalonians 5:3, "For
when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction
cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they
shall not escape."
So is it any wonder the Roman Catholic controlled IRS would
have the same belief structure?
Many have asked
if we can actually show them this in the law. Our answer is no, we can't
because you won't find a specific law that says that you can't preach on the
Second Coming of Jesus Christ in America today. That's because they don't have
to write a law to gain the same effect. All Congress has to do is to give an
outlaw agency like the IRS a carte blanche privilege of making up their own so-called
laws as they go along. The churches agreed to this when they signed their
tax-exempt contract. They said that they would obey all laws, federal, state
and local, presently and in the future. But they apparently didn't read the
fine print. The new churches filing for tax exemption must agree to the
following: "The Corporation or organization shall have no power to take
any action that would be required for a tax exemption under Internal
Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and related regulations, rulings, and
procedures." It is now the "procedure" of the IRS to refuse tax
exempt status to those churches that will not agree that all religions are
equal and who refuse to join through tax exemption, the world church. Also,
preaching on Christ's coming is taboo.
For those churches which are foolish enough to believe that Sec. 508 of the IRS
code allows an automatic exemption for churches, need to read it again. It
doesn't say "exemption," it says, "...churches have a mandatory
exception." The exception is from filing a Form 1023 to make application
for not for profit status. Here is the kicker. Churches have to abide by the
same rules that those that do file for this privilege. And if they do not, the
IRS can, and most assuredly will, remove their tax exemption. The only thing
missing is the annual Form 990 that other religious organizations have to file.
When this is required, the churches will be under total control of the IRS with
no wiggle room.
In the Baptist Temple court case, the church learned that a New Testament
Church does not legally exist in the US today because there are no longer any
First Amendment protections left. The genius of the First Amendment and various
religious freedom clauses of the fifty states is that, for the first time in
history, a N. T. Church could exist legally without having in the words of the
IRS a "distinct legal existence." Now even a N.T. Church will be
assigned by force the legal status of an association and will be expected to
meet the same standards that the not for profits have to meet. But, they still
won't have their God given right of a non-taxable status. This status is in
contrast to an exempt status which is a privilege not a right.
IRS Agent Says That Churches are Trapped
The evidence as to what we are saying, though denied by most preachers, was
made clear on January 24 this year in Tampa, Florida. IRS agent Melvin Blough
testified in federal court that "once a church obtains the status of
501(c)(3) under the IRC they are trapped. The only way to be removed from a
501(c)(3) status is if the IRS chooses to remove the exemption. So if you
dissolve the corporation and continue on as ABC church, an unincorporated
church, you're still trapped in their web and under their control." He
further testified that a church is automatically exempt under federal law
without a 501(c)(3) designation. He also stated under oath that churches
request the status just to get the governments stamp of approval. Even though
Blough used the word "exemption" rather than "exception,"
he is essentially correct in his assessment of the plight of the churches of
America. It is obvious that, regardless, the result is the same.
