The other day I scanned a few websites looking for a basic rundown on what most ministries are teaching regarding the end of the world. They all preach a 7 year tribulation period, but have a few variations as to what happens during this time. With all their differences in doctrine and prophetic definition, they all seem to agree that there will be a world wide holocaust wherein people are mostly living in utter anarchy going about killing whom they please for seemingly no reason whatsoever. When it gets within just a few days of the arrival of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, some of the world's religions like to describe a world where most people will be emulating what can only be described as mindless zombies running about bathed in the revelry of sin seeking to devour any and all in their path. Many like to tout the passage found in Luke 18:8 as the reason for this. That passage says, "...Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" Because they assume this passage speaks of such a bizzare world, none on the planet will be with faith. Some go so far as to preach all or most will be in total control of Satan, hence the reason for anarchy. I have a few pages on the site in the prophecy section of the menu on the main page that speaks of the end in greater detail using all the Bible verses I could find. But I think one passage can clear this all up rather quickly.
Here we can plainly see their is no truth in the 7 year tribulation chain of events as being preached by some. If in fact there was to be world wide panic and total anarchy for even a few days, why would Jesus say here in the book of Luke that normal everyday life will be happening right before that eastern sky splits? I have to ask, can people be going about normal everyday life wherein they are getting married, buying, selling, planting and building while still in the midst of a global holocaust? No, of course not. What we see happening in the churches that preach this easy to prove heresy is what I like to refer to as the acrid smokescreen of Hell pumped out there by Rome. It was two Jesuit theories used in the 1800's and particularly one named Francisco Ribera that fashioned this lie to scare people back into the Roman churches. All these false Catholic prophecies that are being embraced by literally all churches lately are nothing more than smoke and mirrors designed by Satan to get people lulled into a false sense of security. How do such frightening events give them this false peace? After they hear of the amazing blood curdling events, they look around and feel at ease thinking it's not as close to the end as they feared because life isn't that bad yet. So, they sit back down, close their bibles and go back to living life without a care in the world.
Like the magician on stage, Satan needs to redirect everyone's attention from what's really going on. He is waving his lies in one area while flaunting his tempting assistant in another area. He does this so the real facts going on right before everyone's eyes can be missed. Miss-direction, or smoke screening methods, are very effective, and have been used for thousands of years. The military is very infamous in using such methods to divert the enemies attention while rushing towards them in ambush. When that Eastern sky starts to split, literally billions will be shouting, "The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved." (Jeremiah 8:20) They have been all taught to wait for a secret rapture, or signs of a global holocaust before bothering to get into their Bibles. I guess some people feel they can place their eternal lives on the back burner as long as daisies are still growing in their gardens.
Truth is, only the remnant that understands prophecy will be ready because God's people are "...not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief." (1 Thessalonians 5:4) It will be as Jesus predicted. Just like in Noah's day, right before the flood came, or in Lot's day, right before the cities were leveled. Those that didn't see the need to get ready to meet their God will be drinking, eating, buying, selling, planting, and building. "...then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape." -1 Thessalonians 5:3
Yes, Paul does tell us that "In the last days perilous times shall come." 2 Timothy 3:1. And as we look around we do plainly see that "...evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." (-2 Timothy 3:13) Most of the people today don't read Bibles and even more don't read Newspapers. The majority are unaware of just how bad it is out there because, #1, they don't study prophecy and #2, they refuse to open their eyes to what's happening before them because it's not as bad as their preachers say it's prophecied to get. They figure, "...My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;" - Luke 12:45
I recently posted some video links on the site wherein they show Roman Catholic parents in Africa casting their children out of the family as witches. While others were actually burning some of them alive. Plus, in every nation on earth people kill babies in abortions to the tune of well over 100,000 a day now. There are parents and children killing each other quite often now, and this is just the tip of the iceberg wherein I mention only those people that are supposed to love each other. Family members! But, even with all this evil and decadence, we don't have the anarchy or the global holocaust the pastors are preaching as inevitable. So many think "peace and safety" and kick back ignoring the real signs all around them. Don't get me wrong, it's going to get worse, yes. Especially for Christians. But when we look around, do such insane crimes as we see daily in the News stop the people from building? Does it stop the people from being married? It most assuredly doesn't stop any from buying and selling.
What I'm getting at is, the trusted bible prophecies say it will be one way. Satan, on the other hand, through his ministers of light in all these strange denominations say it will be another way. All these prophetically incompetent sermons out there that are predicting anarchy are designed to make people think what the world is going through now is normal and nothing to be concerned with. Sure we have drive by shootings, mothers killing babies, children shooting up schools, politicians stealing billions, judges letting killers go free, and drug dealers selling their drugs on the street. But at least we don't have people suddenly disappearing all over the place, demons manifesting in broad daylight, and mass murder on a scale never imagined by mankind. The people are conditioned to watch for things that are simply never to arrive! As far as I'm concerned, this is without a doubt the last trick played on mankind by Satan.
One thing I like about prophecy is how blunt it can get at times. The Word clearly says, "There shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation." (2 Peter 3:3, 4.) It also says, "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them... But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief." -1 Thessalonians 5:2-4.
I recall Pope John Paul II stating a few years ago before he died that the end of the world was not yet near. Then, just a few months ago in December of 2008, Benedict 16 echoed his words when he said the following...
Again, what Jesus described as the end and what this pope flippantly says about floods, terrorism, and global financial collapse was quite different. All that's happening in the world is being declared as "normal" to the people at large, so they ignore it. Yes, the plagues will be falling, and the signs we see today will get worse, but as we know by studying what Jesus stated in all four Gospels, such disasters don't appear to slow the people on earth from doing as they feel is necessary. They are more concerned with building, planting, buying and selling. Even today you can see this when you look into the lives of those slowly killing themselves with drugs, alcohol and tobacco. They know they are killing themselves because it's written right on their products packaging. But does this stop their desire to party on? No, not in the least. Their priorities are focused on pleasing the demands of the flesh and not on the signs of the times. Even a smokers cough is ignored! When they are blind to such blunt realities, prophetic signs of the times are even easier to ignore because they stopped reading bibles long ago just as the prophet Amos predicted.
It has been so long since some families have opened bibles that today it's considered not only old fashioned to do so, it's considered weird and un-cool by most. Even here their eyes have been adjusted by the enemies of souls to look and seek after those things they deem more important than readying for Jesus Christ's return. Everyone is watching for the signs the pastors are preaching about. Only problem is, most of those signs will never come to fruition because the majority are not found in Scripture, and those that are found in the Word have been taken out of context to preach a whole different scenario! In other words.. ignore the fear mongering, and trust the Word of God that has been placed in your hand. Timothy's advice is for all of us, we must "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." -2 Timothy 2:15
As for those that preach prophecies not found in God's Word, we have been counseled many thousands of years ago in, Deuteronomy 18:22 the following truths regarding such things. "When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him." We know the majority of their sermons are extra-biblical. (outside the Word of truth) So the truth here is, their strange predictions will never come to pass, so they are not of our concern.
Ok.. I guess I set the foundation deep enough for you to get to my point in all this. So, what am I getting at? You probably already guessed it. Another smokescreen has been discovered that is about to be used against every single obedient Christian on earth, and there is a strong possibility most are oblivious to it's arrival. Just the other day, one of my Newsletter subscribers sent me a link to a video that was created by the United Religions Initiative (URI). I've shared this URI agenda many times before on the site as well as on the air, but at least now they are openly doing this for all to see. I like it when they do exactly as prophecy said they would. It makes our message that much more credible in the eyes of those that scoffed in the past. Those seeds we all planted over the years are about to be watered. (Click here to view the video.)
The video is titled, "be a peacebuilder- United religions initiative" If you watch the video, look closely and you will easily see the devil's hand in this strange and ancient agenda. In the video, and on the URI website they have stated that ALL the religions of the world have created what they refer to as "religiously motivated violence." Truth is, this is the main reason many claim Atheism as their choice. This agenda is the smokescreen that has been billowing for literally eons, and has been warned about many times from remnant pulpits. On the URI site they have this little blurb on their peace-builders opening page that makes it easier to understand what's happening here.
Their interfaith peace-building guide, which has many authors, the first of which is a Muslim cleric, is more or less designed to gather all religions under one roof so as to generate what they believe will be peace around the world. It's no mistake a Muslim cleric is given top billing on that page. A modern day tower of Babel is being constructed right before our very eyes. What many miss is that this was something that was started way back in Paul's day, where he wrote, "The mystery of iniquity doth already work." (2 Thessalonians 2:7) This was Satan's design even back then because what Jesus did put a massive kink in his armor in his war against the God of Heaven. So his best option was to infiltrate these churches. By the way, the early church knew of this infiltration even back then. As we know, Scriptures do confirm you cannot hide such things from the Elect.
As we know, this apostasy was to grow stronger as the centuries went by. It was to get so out of hand that eventually their blunt embrace of sin was going to make them stand out before the remnant that have eyes that see. Paul plainly predicted that in our day the churches would be preaching mass heresy and with such unbiblical lies being taught as truth there would naturally, "... come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition." (2 Thessalonians 2:3) The remnant people know exactly who this man of sin is by simply peering into Roman teachings that they have not only adopted Pagan customs into their church, they have taught all the other churches to accept them as truth. This is why it is no great work for them to gather all the churches into their ecumenical group hug. They have more in common than they do out of common with each other.
This ecumenical movement that is the catalyst for the union of church and state on a soon to come global scale is exactly as the Word of God said was inevitable. Churches do not go to war without the help of civil authority. All these religious wars are nothing more than churches being conditioned by Satan to embrace the church and state image of the beast so as to get their agenda met by force. Case in point is the so called Prophet Mohammed who is supposedly a religious leader, but at the same time using civil authority to not only make secular laws, but out and out war. This is how Roman Catholicism has always worked! Prophecy did declare that, "...all the world wondered after the beast." (Revelation 13:3) and when you look around and see how all religions, Christian and non-Christian alike are adopting Roman Catholic methods of operation. You can see this prophecy fulfilled.
If you will notice, something rather eerie creeps up as you contemplate all this. The Christian religion is the only religion, bar none, that has been proven hands down to be the one and only peace filled religion known to man. Never has history recorded a Sabbath keeping, prophecy understanding Christian man or woman killing another person while still standing within the faith of Jesus Christ. But you have heard of Catholics, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, and even some so called Protestant faiths doing such awful things. All these religions are purpose filled spin offs of the true faith so as to keep billions in darkness, while at the same time setting the groundwork for today's final smokescreen. This violence that stems forth from these corrupted faiths was planned by Satan to make the peace of the real Christians appear evil when the time is right. I know that sounds impossible, but think about this for a moment. Calamities are on the horizon, yes. Even the plagues are soon in coming as we who understand prophecy know. As is also apparent, life will go on as seemingly normal for the wicked all the way up till the day Jesus splits the Eastern sky. When all those different religions join together, and they will, they will be considered by all people around the world as the true "peace-builders" just as Satan planned. Even though all along they were the very ones used by Satan himself to generate wars. Like always, the truth is hidden behind the lies. Those religions are not the true peace-builders. Only true obedient Christians can claim that title with honesty. Yet those that kill each other on a regular basis are on a global campaign to claim it, so as to create yet another smokescreen that will affect each and every remnant Christian on earth. As prophecy predicts, they will adopt Roman Catholic fruits in that they will kill many thinking they do God service. Then the "image of the beast" will be emulated perfectly by them.
This final smokescreen
will be used by Satan, via the Vatican to make everyone involved in the
"peace-builders" ecumenical movement to be considered as the
ones doing the right thing by trying to create world peace. Those of us that
are following Christ perfectly, who by the way are the only true peace-builders
on earth, will be looked upon by the world as evil because we refuse to be
"unequally yoked together with unbelievers." (2 Corinthians 6:14)
Since the whole world is following after the beast as prophecied, and gathering
together to "make peace," the small remnant will be seen as worthy of
death, when all along they, the war generating religions are the only ones truly
worthy of death in hellfire. They say they seek peace, but they will seek war
with us for not complying. Hypocrisy will reign supreme with these
people. This final smokescreen is being fanned heavily right now
by the United Nations so as to create the mind-set needed on that day they need
the people of the world to surround the people of God in what prophecy refers
to as, Armageddon.
Rome knows by personal experience when they killed over 500 million Christians during the time Revelation 13:7 predicted they would, "...make war with the saints, ..to overcome them..." Rome knows better than anyone on earth that the remnant people will not bow to their demands in the ecumenical movement, even unto death! They have been trying for eons to get all to join with them. In the last few hundred years alone they have made many snide remarks in the press about those that haven't joined with them. I have dozens of such quotes regarding this on my "words of a beast" page in the warnings section of the website. All along these remarks have been effective in getting more and more to join them. Time has been good to them in that we can now walk into any Protestant church on earth, including the SDA church, as well as non Christian churches and see Roman Catholic statues, rituals, doctrines, and traditions being embraced. The "...comely and delicate woman" as Jeremiah 6:2 puts it, or "bride of Christ" as John the Baptist described the Christian church, has become defiled by the world as many prophecies confirm was inevitable. Still, at every turn throughout history, the remnant people have stood without, and as prophecy clearly predicts in Revelation 14:4, "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb."
Not only does Rome know this, they will do all they can to make the remnant appear unworthy of God's love with each and every article they post around the world on this topic. If you scan a few of the thousands of articles already floating out there, you will see there is always a gentle dig, or suspiciously hateful comment made that is designed to move people to their end. Peer pressure works even here as we have witnessed by how all, including the SDA church joined with Rome not so many years ago. I stress the SDA church because they were originally used by the Lord to expose the beast in Rome. But as prophecy predicted, they too would become prey to Roman infiltration and have fallen from grace to become a sister to Babylon.
Now.. looking forward to however long our Lord allows this to transpire, do you see what I see? All along, at every step we have been devoted to Christ. At every attack we have ignored Rome's demand to unite with them. Some claim to have done this as well, yet they keep Sunday holy, celebrate Christmas, Easter and other Pagan feasts. Do not be fooled, this refusal to join the ungodly by true Christians is something that will be logged and kept on file for the day they choose to make the issue that it is expedient that we, the remnant, should die for the people so that the entire world does not perish in the coming plagues. Jesus did say we would be treated as he was, and this is exactly what they did to Him in John 11:50
Jesus plainly said in John 16:2, "They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service."
If you watched the video I mentioned earlier you will see that already it has become acceptable to kill in the name of the Roman Catholic god. Those people being burned alive were being killed by Roman Catholics. And yes, to be fair, we have also seen Muslims and other religious zealots kill for centuries in this way.
The calamities will increase as prophecy predicts. Just as all the other things have been fulfilled. Christian prophecy isn't only 80% or 90% correct. It's 100% on the mark each and every time. That's why I like to use it when sharing my faith with non-believers. They cannot refute prophetic facts matched with historic record. The religious leaders will act as if they have just come up with a way out of the problem by using this smokescreen they have been fanning for eons. While the people claiming to be Christians stay out of the bibles and keep their eyes glued to the TV sets filled with fearful News reports just as prophecy predicted, as well as listening to false prophets, they will be easily convinced by their lying preachers that the only way to stop, "Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth..." (Luke 21:26) will be to please the bloodthirsty Roman ecumenical god that all the world's religions have agreed to bow to. How will that beast in Rome come up with a way to please that Pagan god, which at the same time make the real Christians stick out like sore thumbs making us easy targets to locate and kill? You probably already guessed it. Sunday laws!
Still, some claim this to be impossible. They think the church will never seek to blame people that refuse Sunday worship as the reason for natural disasters. Are they thinking clearly? Or has this already started?
John Macleod is the pastor of the Sunday keeping Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Who by the way is part of the Roman Catholic one world religion.
So.. I ask, should such things make us fearful? This is their fearful message, not our eternal truth being preached. If they stay out of their bibles, this is their own fear that will come to their mind because we all know how the imagination runs wild when fearful. The Lord said through His prophet Isaiah that, "Neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid." (Isaiah 8:12.) Yes, some of us may die and even suffer persecution. "But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:" -1 Peter 3:14-15
We have a God that hears us when we cry out to Him. He also protects us and guides us when we need Him to. The wicked have a god that will die with them. Let them do as they wish. It cannot change our faith. Don't let them convince any of us to join their number out of fear! "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father." (Romans 8:15) Fear is nothing more than an emotion cultivated by Hell. Since this is not of God, it is not our problem.
Our God warns us in advance all over His Bible that this day is coming. He loves us enough to ready us so we won't be caught off guard. Their god has been blowing smoke in their faces for 6000 years so as to hide just how much he hates them because they were created to glorify the same God that permanently kicked him out of Heaven. If they knew what we know, they would never be in his camp. This is why it's so sad for them. If they only knew what we know, they would be among us on that great and dreadful day. Pray the Lord blesses each and everyone of us with the chance to tell as many as we can what we know about the Lord's love for them. In so doing it will speed the arrival of our Lord, and our trip home to heaven. "...who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" - Esther 4:14
