- The Power of Grace
in Weaning the Heart from the World
- by Matthew Mead
"Lord, my heart is not
haughty, nor my eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great
matters, or in things too high for me. Surely I have behaved
and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother.
My soul is even as a weaned child." Psalm 131:1-2
Chrysostom, in commending the
grace of humility, says, "Humility is the foundation of
Christian virtue." Indeed, humility is the ornament of all
the graces of God's Spirit. Grace is the beauty of the soul,
and humility is the beauty of grace.
Now David, being about to commend
this grace to the saints, does propound himself as an example
of it in this Psalm: "My heart is not proud, O Lord, my
eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters
or things too wonderful for me." Psalm 131:1.
But what was it, which thus
humbled David's heart, and took him off from doting upon the
world's grandeur, and from delighting himself in present enjoyments?
Why God had, by the power of
his grace, taken his heart off from all things here below, by
showing him the vanity and emptiness of them; so that he was
wholly weaned from them. So he says, verse 2, "I have behaved
and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother:
my soul is even as a weaned child."
Doctrine: "Where the grace
of God takes hold of the soulit makes it as a weaned child,
to all worldly things."
I. In the discussing this doctrine, I shall show you what it
is to be "as a weaned child."
II. I shall show you that there
is a great resemblance between a weaned child and a gracious
III. I shall show you how grace
weans the heart from all worldly things.
I. What is it to be "as
a weaned child?" This I shall show, both negatively and
A. Negatively first, and that
in two things:
1. It is not to be without
the comforts and contentments of the world. It is possible to
have much of the world - and yet be weaned from the world - as
David did here. He had riches in abundance, honor in abundance,
for he was advanced to the throne, he was the greatest man in
the kingdom - and yet his soul was as a weaned child.
Many may have little of the
world - and yet their hearts are not weaned. And many may have
much of the world - and yet be weaned from the world.
2. It is not to slight and
undervalue our enjoyments; for they are a real mercy from God.
They are gifts from above, the noble effects of the bounty of
- We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is
the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who
spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to
prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness
as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me." We

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. George went to be with the Lord in 2003. We were
Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years. We prayed to God in 1992
to allow us to do a ministry speaking out against Scientology.
Six months later God led us to the truth: out of the cult of
Mormonism. We did not know at the time we were in a cult. No-one
had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic
- We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible
calls for a falling away from churches and becoming
atheistic before Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers
are called 'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove
that the Bible is true from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development (Agenda
21). The Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten
horns), each king (horn) will receive a region of the world as
a reward for work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason
for the present development of NAU (The North American Union)
as well as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we
are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied
in the Bible. The end result will not be Democracy but a form
of Fascist Communism (Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to
confirm that we are moving into that space of time.

an email group that gets information when we upload new information

armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,

- THE GREAT TRIBULATION MULTITUDE SAVED AFTER THE RAPTURE
It is scary to think of the multitude in the church world that
will either be saved after the Rapture or worship the Antichrist.
- Not for a moment can you think it will be easy to resist
the dark deception once the Bride of Christ is gone. The Antichrist
will take on the persona of Jesus Christ. There is a great company
that rejects the Pre-Tribulation Rapture that will be subject
to great deception because of this false teaching. This crowd
sees themselves as overcomers and like an army defeating Satans
antichrist. The effort of the Antichrist to enlist them for his
plan is awesome.
- We already see a multitude dying in chapter six. When the
people who know they have missed the Rapture realize its
now or never, a multitude will fall on their face to repent.
Think of the whole world being aware of the departure of millions
and open graves everywhere. Arabs will now know that Allah was
not God. The false religions all over the world will not have
a chance to repent and be converted. The Bible says that when
His judgments are in the earth men will learn righteousness.
- Lets look at the picture that the angels created for
John to see. A marvelous number of Jews are saved and sealed.
But the great number is citizens of the world. Many dark religions
have blended great cultures of people. Religions like Islam have
blended entire nations of people and taught them anger against
the Jews and Christians. All of this must come to a conclusion
and the God of the Bible will be vindicated. The hated Christians
will now be prepared to rule the world under the sovereign hands
of Jesus Christ. http://www.pawcreek.org/open-bible-dialog/the-great-multitude
- THE GRANDEST MOMENT IN CHURCH HISTORY WILL BE WHEN THE DIVINE
SON IS CROWNED "KING OF KINGS"
- If there is one mystery in the entire Bible that is greater
or more breathtaking than all the rest of truth, it is the eternal
person of Jesus Christ. In Genesis chapter one, He is the going
forth of all creation. We see this in these supernatural words,
And God said
(Genesis 1:3). Seeing the mystery
of those three words spoken nine times in Genesis chapter one
clearly proves Johns statement, All things were made
by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
(John 1:3) Every time God speaks, it is in the person of the
Eternal Word. The Father opened the door to Christ His Son when
He said, Let Us make man
(Genesis 1:26). What
a fabulous word God used when He said US in Holy
Scripture to the overall revelation of the Bible.To seek to remove
the Son from the Revelation of God is to have nothing left but
another religion. God Himself could not come down and redeem
us because of His unapproachable Holiness, but He could send
His Son in a hidden form of flesh. Preparation for this sacrifice
began in the presence of the first human sin. An animal was slain
by the Father to provide a blood offering and to cast a shadow
toward the cross where the Son would be offered instead. A crimson
cord of hope never faded until Divine blood dropped on Calvarys
- In Genesis, He is the Word. In Exodus, He is Water from the
Rock. In Leviticus, He is the future priest; while in Numbers,
He is the sacrifice for all sin. Throughout the Bible, He never
fades from the center of all Scripture. He is the mystery Word
hidden in the written Word that shines time and time again throughout
the First Testament. Solomon saw Him as the Rose of Sharon
and Lilly of the Valley. (Song of Solomon 2:1) Isaiah actually
saw Him as the Son (Isaiah 9:6) in one rare instance
of the First Covenant. He was like the Son light
of eternity waiting to shine in the brilliance of His incarnation.
And the Word was made flesh
(John 1:14) http://www.pawcreek.org/open-bible-dialog/its-almost-time
- IT IS BELIEF, NOT BEHAVIOR
A Bible Study by Jack Kelley - April 18, 2016 - Do you not know
that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do
not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor
drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom
of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you
were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord
Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Cor. 6:9-11).
- Of all the questions about OSAS, those that refer to the
above passage are among the most numerous. On its face, the first
part of 1 Cor. 6:9-10 seems pretty clear, the unrighteous will
not inherit the Kingdom of God. No argument there. Its
Christianity 101. And the examples Paul used to show what he
meant by unrighteous are all clear violations of
- Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,
nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor
revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
- Some of his examples, like fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals,
and sodomites appear on most lists of big sins. These
are sins that lots of people hate, and while they are certainly
sins, their notoriety causes some people to gloss over the other
ones Paul mentioned. Stealing, coveting, drunkenness and reviling
(criticizing in an abusive or insulting manner) often get ignored
in peoples minds, having been overshadowed by the
- And, at least among the people who send me questions, it
seems that many people dont even take a glance at 1 Cor.
6:11, And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you
were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord
Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
- For that reason, Id like to take a detailed look at
the whole passage to see if we can figure out what Paul really
- A Closer Look
- First, lets go back to 1 Cor. 6:9. Do you not know
that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
- If we really read that verse carefully we would see it cant
apply to believers because we are righteous by definition. We
have a righteousness from God apart from the law that comes through
faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe (Romans 3:21-22). The
examples of unrighteousness Paul gave all have to do with behavior,
whereas our righteousness comes from our belief.
- Where behavior is concerned, Jesus said it doesnt take
unrighteous acts to disqualify us from the Kingdom, it only takes
an unrighteous thought. He gave anger (Matt. 5:21-22) and lust
(Matt. 5:27-28) as examples but He could have listed many more,
like greed, envy, jealousy, and the list goes on. How many of
us have unrighteous thoughts from time to time? Does that mean
weve disqualified ourselves from inheriting the kingdom?
Of course not.
- But the real kicker in in verse 11. And such were some of
you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were
justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of
- Paul said some of us were fornicators, idolaters, adulterers,
homosexuals, sodomites, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers,
or extortioners. And from the Lords comments above we can
assume that includes thoughts and words, as well as deeds. But
note the past tense. We were like that. What has changed to make
us not like that any more?
- First, we have been washed. We havent washed ourselves,
weve been washed. In Ephesians 5:26 Paul said its
Yeshua washed us, cleansing us by washing us with water through
- Then, we were sanctified. It means to be made holy. Again,
we didnt sanctify ourselves, it was done to us. When Jesus
washed us it was so He could present us to Himself as a radiant
Church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy
and blameless (Ephes 5:27), sanctified.
- And finally, we were justified. It means to render righteous.
The Greek word for justified is the opposite form of the word
translated unrighteous in verse 9. This refers to the righteousness
that has been imputed to us by faith. And like we didnt
do the washing and the sanctifying, we didnt render ourselves
righteous, either. It was done to us, in the name of Yeshua,
by the Spirit of God.
- When that happened we became a new creation in Christ. From
Gods perspective, the old us was gone and the new us had
come (2 Cor. 5:17). And though we still sin, He no longer attributes
our sins to us, but to the sin that still lives within us. He
knows our sin infested bodies will never leave this world. They
will either die or be changed at the rapture, so when we come
into His presence well be the new creation He has chosen
to see from the moment we were saved.
- Paul used himself as an example of how God now sees us.
- For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is,
in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good,
but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to
do, but the evil I do not want to dothis I keep on doing.
Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do
it, but it is sin living in me that does it (Romans 7:18-20).
- David gave us a glimpse of this 1,000 years before Paul when
- Blessed is he whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins
are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count
against him and in whose spirit is no deceit (Psalm 32:1-2),
- As far as the East is from the West, so far has He removed
our transgressions from us (Psalm 103:12).
- This explains how God can render us righteous
while were still sinners. He separated the believer from
the behavior, making the believer a new creation, holy and blameless,
and attributing behavior that is not consistent with His new
creation to the sin that still dwells within us. He knows the
cause of our sinful behavior resides in the mortal part of us
that will die or be changed. Our faith in what Jesus did for
us allows Him to consider only the immortal part of us, which
He will soon clothe in perfection. This is the only way He could
guarantee our salvation from the time we became believers, because
if it depended upon our behavior we would all have been lost
again shortly after we were saved.
- A License To Sin?
- This interpretation of Scripture has been called giving
people a license to sin by some. They love to cite hypothetical
examples of worst case scenarios that frankly never happen. For
example, I had one person warn me that if my interpretation ever
became accepted by the majority of believers then, in his words,
Let the rape and pillage begin, as if to say that
unless Christians are held in check by the constant fear of losing
their salvation there would be no end to the evil acts we would
- But those who make predictions of this sort overlook three
important facts. The first is, by and large even unbelievers
are reasonably well behaved, and they dont have the fear
of losing their salvation to restrain them. Romans 2:14 says
those who dont know Gods law, do by nature the things
required by it, because its written on our hearts, and
our own conscience acts as a guiding influence on our behavior.
- The second is the indwelling Holy Spirit, sealed inside us
when we were saved, to convict us of our sins, guide us into
all truth, and counsel us on appropriate behavior. Remember,
Paul said its God who makes us stand firm in Christ. He
anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us, and put His Spirit
in our hearts as a deposit guaranteeing what is to come (2 Cor.
- And the third is our gratitude. The great majority of those
who believe were saved by grace through faith alone are
so grateful for such an amazing gift that we try not to behave
in ways that would embarrass the Lord in an attempt to express
our gratitude. Paul called it living up to what weve
already attained (Phil. 3:16).
- Where Are You From?
- Its easy for us to lose sight of where we came from,
so Paul reminded us in Ephesians 2. He began by saying that at
one time we were dead in our transgressions and sins, by nature
objects of wrath (Ephes. 2:1-3).
- But because of His great love for us God, who is rich in
mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions
it is by grace you have been saved (Ephes. 2:4-5).
- Our relationship with the Lord is not due to the fact that
one day we decided to clean ourselves up and make ourselves fit
to be in His presence. In Ephes. 2: 8-9 he said we are saved
by grace through faith, and not by works. God accepted us just
as we are because of His mercy, and saved us because of His grace.
Our only contribution was to ask in faith. And then, before we
had done anything, good or bad, He sent His Holy Spirit to dwell
within us as a deposit, guaranteeing our inheritance (Ephes.
- We cant claim our faith in Gods mercy and grace
as the sole basis for our salvation and then demand that others
meet certain behavioral standards in order to receive or maintain
theirs. The fact that one person commits sins that are more obvious
than others is irrelevant. Sin is sin, and we all do it.
- He didnt save us because we behave a certain way. He
saved us because we believe a certain thing.

- THE BIBLE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA OF KNOWLEDGE
- Friday Church News Notes, February 19, 2016, David Cloud
- Elias Boudinot (1740-1821), President of the Continental Congress
and framer of the U.S. Bill of Rights, wrote to his daughter
as follows: "For nearly half a century have I anxiously
and critically studied that invaluable treasure [the Bible];
and I still scarcely ever take it up that I do not find something
new - that I do not receive some valuable addition to my stock
of knowledge or perceive some instructive fact never observed
before. In short, were you to ask me to recommend the most
valuable book in the world, I should fix on the Bible as
the most instructive both to the wise and ignorant. Were you
to ask me for one affording the most rational and pleasing entertainment
to the inquiring mind, I should repeat, it is the Bible; and
should you renew the inquiry for the best philosophy or the most
interesting history, I should still urge you to look into your
Bible. I would make it, in short, the Alpha and Omega of knowledge"

- WATER FOUND IN THE SUN? .. THE DROPS OF WATER
.. BIBLE STUDY?
- JESUS DISCOVERED IN DEAD SEA SCROLLS
- By Simcha Jacobovici - March 25, 2016 - My investigation
into The Dead Sea Scrolls has just premiered on CuriosityStream,
launched by John Hendricks, founder of the Discovery Channel.
CuriosityStream is the world's first streaming service devoted
exclusively to documentaries. The Dead Sea Scrolls report is
part of five initial reports dealing with 'Biblical Mysteries'.
I believe my investigation sheds new light on The Dead Sea Scrolls,
which are arguably the most famous archaeological artifacts ever
found. The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered between 1946 and
1956, first by Bedouin goat-herds and then by archaeologists,
in caves on the shores of the Dead Sea, next to the ancient settlement
- Dead Sea Scroll fragment '4Q451'. Does it refer to Jesus?
- The find caused an immediate sensation because the scrolls
are a sort of ancient library, stored in clay vessels, that include
the oldest manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible ever uncovered. Scholars
have dated the scrolls from approximately 200 BCE to 70 CE (the
date of the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans at the end
of the Great Jewish Revolt (66-73 CE)). Meaning, some of the
scrolls were written and/or copied during the lifetime of Jesus
- From the moment of their discovery, some scholars suggested
that at least some of the scrolls may be the work of early Christians.
After all, a certain 'Teacher of Righteousness' is mentioned
as a persecuted figure and there is also a 'Wicked Priest' and
other characters that seem to mirror early Christianity. Most
scholars, however, have dismissed any connection between the
community that hid their scroll library some 2,000 years ago
in caves at Qumran and the earliest followers of Jesus. Now,
I've made a discovery that may change all this. Put simply, I
believe that one of the fragments called by scholars by the very
unappealing name of '4Q541' explicitly refers to Jesus.
- I was first drawn to this fragment by the authoritative translation
of The Dead Sea Scrolls by Florentino Garcia Martinez (1996,
Brill). In fragment 24, column 2, the scroll refers to someone
called 'The Dove'. The writer of the scroll asks that the dove's
followers 'not mourn for him'. And he further says; 'do not bring
the nail near him'. Given that Jesus is often identified with
a 'dove' (e.g., Matthew 3:16, Luke 3:22), and the Gospels explicitly
refer to the 'nails' of the crucifixion (e.g., John 20:24) and
also to the 'mourning' of his followers after the crucifixion
(e.g., Luke 24:17), it seemed reasonable to me that '4Q541' may
be referring to Jesus. So I looked up Martinez's more complete
'Study Edition' of The Dead Sea Scrolls (1997, Brill), which
also supplies the Aramaic original, to see what I could learn.
I learned a lot.
- I learned that Martinez must have been nervous about the
original reference to 'the nail' and changed his translation.
In the new edition, Martinez translated the Aramaic 'Tsatsa i.e.,
'nail', as nighthawk'. More than this, in the same section, I
discovered 'untranslated!' the word '[T]alia' cross' or 'crucifixion'
in Aramaic! Granted, the letter 'Taf' i.e., 'T' was missing in
Martinez's version of the original, but it sure seemed coincidental
that a possible reference to the crucifixion was in the same
fragment that I now believed was referring to Jesus. What was
this all about I asked myself? Why were words being retranslated
or not translated at all? Were scholars worried about finding
Jesus in any ancient texts other than the New Testament? Continued:

One of the highest-ranking Vatican officials is being compelled
to testify in public starting Sunday, Feb. 28, 2016, about clerical
sex abuse, an unusual demonstration of holding even the most
senior Catholic bishops accountable. The cardinal, Pope Francis'

February 29, 2016 - CANBERRA, Australia (AP) One of Pope
Francis' top advisers has told reporters he has the pope's backing
as he prepared to testify for a second day at an Australian inquiry
into child abuse. Australian Cardinal George Pell met with the
pope on Monday hours after he gave evidence via videolink from
Rome to the Royal Commission in Sydney. Pell told reporters late
Monday as he arrived at a Rome hotel to resume his testimony:
"I've got the full backing of the pope." The Vatican
said the private audience was a long-scheduled appointment related
to Pell's duties as Holy See finance minister, and had nothing
to do with the abuse hearings
- GRAND JURY: 2 BISHOPS HID SEX ABUSE OF HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN
- By JOE MANDAK - From Associated Press - March 01, 2016 -
ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) Two Roman Catholic bishops who led a
central Pennsylvania diocese helped cover up the sexual abuse
of hundreds of children by over 50 priests or religious leaders
over a 40-year period, according to a grand jury report issued
Tuesday. The 147-page report on sexual abuse in the Altoona-Johnstown
Diocese was based partly on evidence from a secret diocesan archive
uncovered through a search warrant executed in August, said Pennsylvania
Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who announced the findings. "These
predators desecrated a sacred trust and preyed upon their victims
in the very places where they should have felt most safe,"
Kane said in a statement. "Just as troubling is the cover-up
perpetrated by clergy leaders that allowed this abuse to continue
- No criminal charges are being filed in the case because some
abusers have died, the statute of limitations has expired and,
in some cases, victims are too traumatized to testify, she said.
- The report is especially critical of Bishops James Hogan
and Joseph Adamec. Hogan, who headed the diocese from 1966 to
1986, died in 2005. Adamec, who succeeded him, retired in 2011.
Adamec cited possible self-incrimination in refusing to testify
before the grand jury in November. But in a court filing, his
attorney said the accusations against the retired 80-year-old
bishop are unfounded. Adamec required 14 priests accused under
his watch to undergo psychiatric evaluation, the filing said.
Nine of them were suspended or removed from ministry, and the
five who were reinstated never re-offended, his attorney wrote.
- "Bishop Adamec's handling of abuse allegations has no
similarity to other clergy abuse scandals," his attorney
wrote. The current bishop, Mark Bartchak, is not accused of any
wrongdoing. He recently suspended a handful of priests named
as alleged abusers in the report, though the grand jury said
it remains "concerned the purge of predators is taking too
long." The clergy sex abuse crisis erupted in 2002, when
The Boston Globe persuaded a judge to unseal files from the Boston
Archdiocese in the case of a pedophile priest who had been transferred
by bishops from parish to parish without warning parents or civil
authorities. The scandal then spread nationwide and beyond, as
Catholics and others demanded to know the full scope of wrongdoing
by abusers and the bishops who kept them working with children.
- POPE FRANCIS DECLARES LUCIFER AS GOD
- By MichelleWalling - October 3, 2015 - By Wes Penre - Wes
Comment: This video clearly reveals whom Pope Francis (the peoples
Pope) wants to welcome back to Earth as a very public figurethe
Lord of the AIF, who can be directly linked to Lucifer (see the
Wes Penre Papers). I am talking about Lord En.ki, whom I exposed
in the Wes Penre Papers as being the Overlord of the ETs who
have controlled and manipulated mankind behind the scenes since
the beginning of time, in a sense (potentially En.kis son,
Lord Marduk, will play a role in this as well).
There is a reason why this Jesuit Priest became the current Pope
at this particular time, and the creepy Ratzinger had to go.
There is a reason why Pope Francis wants to connect with people
on an average level, and theres a reason why he wants to
be so liked and admired by Catholics as well as non-Catholics.
There is a reason why he is saying that all religions are accepted
It seems to me that this Last Pope (if we believe prophecies)
may be the one to welcome and baptize the Lord of Lords as the
God of a World Religionthe Religion of the New Golden
Age, which accepts all religions as One. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcpVrtv2t-M
- NUNS SLAUGHTERED BY ISIS AT CHARITY STARTED BY MOTHER TERESA
- ISLAMIC TERRORISTS KILL 16 IN YEMEN ATTACK
- March 4, 2016 - WND - Douglas Ernst - A charity started by
Mother Teresa of Calcutta came under attack by the Islamic State
group on Friday. Witnesses said 4 nuns and 12 employees were
shot in the head in Yemen after being placed in handcuffs. Two
gunmen surrounded the building in Aden while four others entered
the building, officials speaking on condition of anonymity told
the Associated Press. On entering inside, [the terrorists]
immediately shot dead the gatekeeper and started shooting randomly,
said Vikas Swarup, spokesman for Indias external affairs
ministry, the Guardian reported. One nun managed to survive by
hiding inside a refrigerator within a store room. Roughly 80
people live at the retirement home, which is run by Missionaries
of Charity. The effort was launched in 1998. Yemen, once touted
as a counterterrorism success by President Obama, spiraled into
chaos in January 2015 after Houthi forces seized the presidential
palace in the capital city of Sana. The countrys
president, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, fled soon afterward. Read

- TURKISH PRESIDENT ERDOGEN SEIZES SIX CHRISTIN CHURCHES, MAKING
THEM STATE PROPERTY
- By Michael van der Galien April 16, 2016 - The 1,700-year-old
Virgin Mary Syriac Orthodox Church in Diyarbakir was one of the
churches seized. Image Courtesy of Shutterstock. Recep Tayyip
Erdogan's administration recently seized six churches as state
property in the volatile southeastern part of Turkey. As World
Watch Monitor reports: After 10 months of urban conflict in Turkeys
war-torn southeast, the government has expropriated huge sections
of property, apparently to rebuild and restore the historical
centre of the regions largest city, Diyarbakir.
- But to the dismay of the citys handful of Christian
congregations, this includes all its Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant
churches. Unlike the state-funded mosques, Turkeys ancient
church buildings some of which pre-date Islam have
been managed, historically, by church foundations.
- Because of this move, the churches in Diyarbakir now factually
belong to the state. This includes a church that was built 1,700
years ago, and a new one, built in 2003. Continued: https://pjmedia.com/faith/2016/04/16/turkish-president-erdogan-seizes-six-christian-churches-making-them-state-property/
- CLINTON: UNBORN CHILDREN HAVE NO RIGHTS
April 4, 2016 - In comments that are bound to be seized upon
by her Republican rivals, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton
declared unborn children have no constitutional rights,
during a Sunday interview with Meet The Press. Clinton was asked
by host Chuck Todd, When or if does an unborn child have
constitutional rights?, to which she responded: Under
our laws, currently, that is not something that exists. The unborn
person doesnt have constitutional rights. Now,
that doesnt mean that we dont do everything we possibly
can in the vast majority of instances to help a mother who is
carrying a child and wants to make sure that child will be healthy,
to have appropriate medical support, she qualified. It
doesnt mean that you dont do everything possible
to try to fulfill your obligations, but it does not include sacrificing
the womans right to make decisions, and I think thats
an important distinction that, under Roe vs. Wade, weve
had enshrined under our Constitution.
- TRANSGENDER PREACHER TELLS BAPTIST GATHERING
'ANGEL OF REASON' HELPED AFFIRM DESIRE TO BE A WOMEN
- By Heather Clark - April 17, 2016 - ST. LOUIS, Mo.
The nations first transgender Baptist preacher
spoke to a national Baptist gathering on April 8, explaining
that the doctor who delivered him as a baby was wrong in declaring
him a boy, and that it was an angel of reason that
caused him to accept his inclinations to identify as a woman.
Daniel Robinson, who goes by the name Allyson Robinson, had been
studying to be a pastor at Baylor Universitys George W.
Truett Theological Seminary in 2005 when he began to wrestle
with his gender identity as never before. He had struggled with
his desire to be a man since childhood. I have known my
entire life that the world was wrong about me, that on the day
I was born, when the doctor took a cursory glance between my
legs and authoritatively declared Its a boy,
he was wrongdead wrong, Robinson told the Alliance
of Baptists in St. Louis this month. He said that one day in
his early seminary days he contemplated suicide, but an angel
of the Lord that he called reason stopped him.
- What if God hasnt fixed you because youre
not broken? Robinson said he heard inside of himself. That
cant be true, he thought. The Bible says Im
broken. What if the Bible is wrong? the voice
said. What if youve been reading it wrong?

- POPE FRANCIS SAYS CONTRACEPTION 'LESSER OF TWO EVILS' COMPARED
WITH SPREAD OF ZIKA VIRUS
By Meteor Blades - February 18, 2016 - On a flight from Mexico
to Rome Thursday after a six-day trip that included a visit to
Cuba, Pope Francis told reporters that using contraception to
avoid infecting fetuses with the Zika virus is better than abortions
to terminate pregnancies in which the fetus is infected. The
virus has been linked to some cases of microcephaly in newborns.
The pope called abortion an "absolute evil" and a "crime
and reiterated the churchs stance that it is always wrong:
"It is to kill someone in order to save another. This is
what the Mafia does," Francis said. "On the other hand,
avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil." The Pope then
pointed to a narrow exception to the church's ban on most forms
of birth control: His predecessor, Pope Paul VI, allowed African
nuns who were raped to use contraception, Francis said. He did
not explain why and what forms of birth control were used. "In
certain cases ... such as the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul
VI, it was clear," the Pope said. It was Paul VI who wrote
"Humanae Vitae," the papal document that solidified
the church's stance against almost every form of birth control
in 1968. The church does allow natural family planning, which
involves a woman monitoring her basal body temperature and vaginal
secretions to avoid having sex at fertile times of the month.
SCIENTISTS USE BRAIN STIMULATION TO 'MAKE YOU STOP BELIEVING
- October 16, 2015
- Truthstream Media - The Daily Express is reporting today that
scientists are using electromagnets to literally alter (and thus
control) peoples thoughts and beliefs. Before we start
talking about how this technology isnt new, heres
the gist: A bizarre experiment claims to be able to make Christians
no longer believe in God and make Britons open their arms to
migrants in experiments some may find a threat to their values
Using a technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS),
researchers safely shut down certain groups of neurones in the
brains of volunteers.
- TMS, which is used to treat depression, involves placing
a large electromagnetic coil against the scalp which creates
electric currents that stimulate nerve cells in the region of
the brain involved in mood control. Researchers found the technique
radically altered religious perceptions and prejudice
in God was reduced almost by a third, while participants became
28.5 per cent less bothered by immigration numbers. And that
little glimpse is just the tip of the modern mind control technology
iceberg. One of the social engineers heading up this study is
University of Yorks Dr. Keise Izuma, a lecturer in the
Psychology Department. His bio on the colleges website
says, My research interests lie in the area of social cognitive
neuroscience and include social decision-making, pro-social behaviour,
social influence, attitude change, and cognitive consistency
(e.g., cognitive dissonance theory, balance theory).
- U.S. AIR FORCE PAID TO HAVE CADETS LEARN WITCHCRAFT - ENCOURAGED
AIRMEN TO 'DANCE WITH ECSTASY AROUND MAYPOLE'
- By Bob Unruh - WND - February 24, 2016 - Financial donations
made to the U.S. Air Force Academy chapel later were used for
cadets to participate in witchcraft, Faery Magick,
and voodoo, according to a new report from one of the leading
Washington watchdog organizations. Judical Watch, which has fought
for the publics right to know how government money is spent,
including when then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi went profligate
with $100,000 plus for in-flight treats, said it has obtained
documents from the academy revealing in 2014 and 2015, the military
school used its Chapel Tithes and Offering Fund for
some pretty exotic expenditures. The funds were used for worship
services featuring witchcraft, the Faery Magick,
voodoo and more, including a trip from cadets to a Wiccan festival
in Denver and a Denver Witches Ball, the report said. The category
of government accounting the money came from is described as
being funded by free-will donations, and it also
is called an instrumentality of the United States government,
Judicial Watch reported. Read more at http://www.wnd.com/2016/02/u-s-air-force-paid-to-have-cadets-learn-witchcraft
POPE PRAISES ITALY'S LEADING
- By Sandy Fitzgerald - February 27, 2016 AP - Pro-life leaders
expressed shock after Pope Francis praised the "Margaret
Sanger" of Italian politics.
- In an interview early in February the Pope called former
Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino one of the nation's "forgotten
greats." Bonino for decades has been known as Italy's most
outspoken abortion-rights activist.
- In his interview with the Italian daily Corriere Della Serra,
the Pope acknowledged that his praise, in which he compared her
to historical figures such as Konrad Adenauer, who was the first
post-world War II chancellor of Germany, and the famed French
statesman Robert Schuman, could be considered controversial.

- POPE UNLEASHES 'SUPER CONFESSORS' TO TACKLE SINS
By: Ella Ide - February 10, 2016 - AFP - Pope Francis greets
the crowd as he arrives for his weekly general audience on February
10, 2016 at St Peter's square (AFP Photo/Filippo Monteforte)
Vatican City (AFP) - Dubbed 'super confessors', for one year
only they can absolve sins usually only pardoned by the pope
himself.. And on Wednesday over 1,000 of these "missionaries
of mercy", handpicked by Pope Francis, were sent forth to
win back the hearts of those who have left the Catholic Church
and open the door to repentant sinners across the world. There
are certain evils the Vatican ranks above other sins, from attempting
to assassinate the pope to defiling the Eucharist -- the rite
of consuming consecrated bread and wine in Church -- by spitting
it out or using it in a Satanic ritual.
- Since the 12th century, those guilty of these so-called "reserved
sins" had their cases evaluated by a secret tribunal in
the tiny Vatican city state before they were sent before the
pope, who would determine an appropriate penance. Now, 1,142
priests and monks from around the world have be given the power,
for the Vatican's Jubilee Year, to forgive sinners in their flocks
-- and possibly fellow priests as one of the special sins is
breaking the seal
- of confession. https://www.yahoo.com/news/pope-unleashes-super-confessors-tackle-special-sins-164359990.html?ref=gs
- I NDEPENDENT BAPTIST CHURCH FEATURES HOMOSEXUAL ENTERTAINER
Friday Church News Notes - February 12, 2016 - Marcus Pointe
Baptist Temple in Pensacola, Florida, illustrates the slippery
slope of messing with contemporary music and embracing the accompanying
heresy that grace equates with non-judgmentalism in matters such
as music. The pastor, Gordon Godfrey, spoke at Southwide Baptist
Fellowship in 2006 and 2009. In fact, Marcus Pointe hosted the
Southwide Fellowship meeting in 2009. Evangelist Tim Lee reported
in his blog that year that the meeting "was awesome"
and that Marcus Pointe is one of his supporting churches. This
"awesome" church has been on the slippery slope of
spiritual compromise for years, and the effect is obvious. This
January it hosted entertainer Barry Manilow on his One Last Time
Tour. The church's choir accompanied Manilow in a worldly rock
& roll show that included Manilow's hit song "Copacabana."
The lyrics begin like this: "Her name was Lola, she was
a showgirl/ With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut
down to there/ She would merengue and do the
- cha-cha/ And while she tried to be a star/ Tony always tended
bar/ Across the crowded floor, they worked from 8 til 4/ They
were young and they had each other/ Who could ask for more?"
When a concerned brother in Christ communicated to one of the
Marcus Pointe choir members that Manilow is a homosexual who
"married" his long-time partner in 2015, the choir
member didn't know and "didn't seem to care." One day,
it will be evident
- to such people that ignorance is not bliss and the true grace
of God is not non-judgmental tolerance of sin and error. "For
the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all
men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present
world" (Titus 2:11-12). "And have no fellowship with
the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them"
(Ephesians 5:11). www.wayoflife.org
- POPE FRANCIS SAYS ALL MAJOR
RELIGIONS PATHS TO SAME GOD
- [Ednote: The Pope does not believe in the Bible but declares
himself to be god]
- A new video has just been released in which Pope Francis
very clearly expresses his belief that all of the major religions
are different paths to the same God.
- He says that while people from various global faiths may
be "seeking God or meeting God in different ways" that
it is important to keep in mind that "we are all children
of God". This is the most recent example that shows that
the Pope has completely abandoned any notion that a relationship
with God is available only through Jesus Christ. As he has done
throughout his papacy, he continues to lay the groundwork for
the coming one world religion, and yet hardly anyone seems upset
by this. When I first heard of this new video, I was so stunned
that I thought that it might be a joke. But the truth is that
this video is very real. The following comes from an article
that was put out by Catholic News Agency...
- The Popes first-ever video message on his monthly prayer
intentions was released Tuesday, highlighting the importance
of interreligious dialogue and the beliefs different faith traditions
hold in common, such as the figure of God and love.

- POPE FRANCIS PUBLICLY EQUATES HIMSELF WITH GOD
unbelievable. On December 27th, 2015 Pope Francis
equated himself with Jesus Christ. In fact he didnt just
equate himself, he equated everyone with Jesus Christ. Christians
near and far need to understand every aspect of what the pope
stated in his Feast of the Holy Family statement.
- The Pope reflected on the Sunday reading from the Gospel
of Luke in which a young Jesus stayed in Jerusalem in the Temple,
causing great distress to Mary and Joseph when they could not
find him. For this little escapade, Jesus probably
had to beg forgiveness of his parents, the Pope suggested.
The Gospel doesnt say this, but I believe that we
can presume it.
- Scripture is very clear. Jesus Christ did not sin. 1 Peter
2:22 - 22 Who did no sin, neither was there guile found in his
2 Corinthians 5:21 - 21 For he hath made him to be [a]sin for
us, which [b]knew no sin, that we should be made the [c]righteousness
of God in him.
Hebrews 7:26 - 26 [a]For such an high Priest it became us to
have, which is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners,
and made higher than the heavens: 1 John 3:4-5 - 4 [a]Whosoever
[b]commiteth sin, transgresseth also the Law: for [c]sin is the
transgression of the Law. 5 [d]And ye know that he was made manifest,
that he might take away our sins, and in him is no sin. Hebrews
4:15 - 15 [a]For we have not an high Priest, which cannot be
touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all things
tempted in like sort, yet without sin.

- CHISTRIAN STUDENT FACES EXPULSION FOR OPPOSING HOMOSEXUALITY
- Educational campuses have long been a battleground for discussing
and debating different ideologies. Usually, the exchange of different
beliefs and perspectives are encouraged, however when it comes
to Christians who might be opposed to homosexuality, there is
no debate. You will be persecuted and even expelled if your views
don't align with the status quo that homosexuality is not only
acceptable but to be encouraged and supported.
- The latest victim of this battle on campus is Felix Ngole,
aged 38, who was asked to leave the University of Sheffield,
where he was in the second year of a Masters in social work.
What is amazing about Ngole's case is that his comments in support
of the Biblical teaching on marriage and sexual ethics were not
even made on campus, but on his personal Facebook page, which
is only able to be viewed by his friends. However, the post was
still brought to the attention of the faculty at Sheffield who
determined after a hearing that Ngole would no longer be recognized
as a University student due to the committees belief that he
"may have caused offence to some individuals" and had
"transgressed boundaries which are not deemed appropriate
for someone entering the social work profession." Continued http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?popular_news_slot=1R
MORE CHRISTIANS DISCOVERING BIBLICAL BELIEFS COULD COST THEM
- It should come as no surprise that Christians will encounter
opposition to their Biblical beliefs in the workplace. What might
surprise them is that expressing those beliefs both at work and
at home (such as social media) could cost them their job. The
latest victim of workplace firing to lose his case is Urologist
Dr. Paul Church who was relieved from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical
Center in Boston earlier this year and was just recently denied
a chance to appeal
- his case. Church's offense was warning of the health risks
of homosexual behavior and questioning the judgment of a hospital
promoting such unhealthy behavior. Continued: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?popular_news_slot=3L
- U.S. COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES
ARE AT THE CENTER OF THIS DEBATE
- All over the country student groups are pushing for gender-neutral
restrooms, and many institutions of higher learning are now starting
- them. The following comes from an editorial in the Harvard
Crimson that addresses the transition that is now taking place
at that university...
- The need for gender-neutral restrooms is profound, and their
expansion is long overdue. Gender-neutral restrooms are critical
for the safety and well-being of BGLTQ students, and it is vital
that they are installed more widely throughout campus. While
it is commendable that some of the Houses have started to
- implement gender-neutral restrooms, single-gender bathrooms
are the majority, especially in residential buildings. The process
by which students can petition for gender-neutral restrooms in
their dorms remains inconsistent and opaque. Additionally, very
few gender-neutral restrooms exist in academic buildings. Read

BATHROOM CRISIS IN AMERICA:
- THE NATIONAL DEBATE OVER GENDER-NEUTRAL BATHROOMS
- [WHERE WAS THE DEBATE??] Should public facilities continue
to offer separate bathrooms for men and women? In 2016, this
has become a political "hot potato" that is causing
emotions to run high on both sides of the debate. Many liberals
consider the push for gender-neutral bathrooms to be on the cutting
edge of the civil rights movement in the United States. Meanwhile,
many conservatives consider separate bathrooms for men and women
to be a matter of basic moral decency. What both sides of the
debate can agree on is that this is an issue that is not going
away any time soon. Gender-neutral bathrooms are popping up in
public places all over America, and the Obama administration
has even installed one in the White House. Unfortunately, these
gender-neutral bathrooms can have some very serious unintended
consequences as you will see below. Did you know that 95 percent
of all retail sales in Sweden are cashless? And did you know
that the government of Denmark has a stated goal of "eradicating
cash" by the year 2030? All over the world, we are seeing
a relentless march toward a cashless society, and nowhere is
this more true than in northern Europe. In Sweden, hundreds of
bank branches no longer accept or dispense cash, and thousands
of ATM machines have been permanently removed. At this point,
bills and coins only account for just 2 percent of the Swedish
economy, and many stores no longer take cash at all. http://www.prophecynewswatch.com

Get What Women Really Want, a call to women across
this great land to wake up and take a stand against the cultural
forces that are fighting tooth-and-nail to destroy their spirit
and their families. Bill Mea, acting president of Cooper Union,
sent an email March 18 informing the campus community of the
new restrooms, which will only be identified as Restroom
with Urinals and Stalls, Restroom with Only Stalls,
and Restroom Single Occupancy. We have always
been ahead of our time and we must continue being leaders on
issues of social justice, Mea said. We, who are in
positions of power, have the obligation to not only stand with
those without power, but to stand in front of them, clearing
a path for them to walk. I cannot change the outside world and
how it treats transgender and gender non-conforming people, but
I can change the Cooper Union environment to help everyone feel
safe when they are inside our buildings. The school president
then appeared to make a veiled threat of disciplinary action
for individuals who publicly protest his decision. Read more
OF BAAL ARCH PLANNED FOR N.Y. CANCELLED
- The Temple of Baal is NOT coming to Times Square in New York
City next month. This is great news, and it represents an incredible
victory for Christians in the United States. As you will see
below, the New York Times, Snopes and a whole host of other mainstream
news sources reported last month that everything was on track
for reproductions of the giant 48-foot-tall arch that stood in
- of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria to be put up simultaneously
in Times Square in New York City and Trafalgar Square in London
during the month of April. But now that will not be happening.
The only arch that will be going up will be in Trafalgar Square,
and it wont be the one from the Temple of Baal. Instead, the
Institute for Digital Archaeology has changed plans and will
be putting up a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph which the
Romans originally built in Palmyra and that has nothing to do
with Baal. So why has there been such a dramatic change in plans?
On Friday, I received an urgent message from a contact that has
been investigating this, and she told me that she had talked
directly to someone from the Institute for Digital Archaeology
and that she had been informed
- that no arch was going up in New York during the month of
April. I pressed her for confirmation, because every mainstream
source that I could find said that the arch from the Temple of
Baal was indeed going up next month. So her information would
definitely change everything, but I
- needed to be able to confirm this. Cont'd http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=251
IMPORTANT FREEDOM OF RELIGION CASES LOSE ON APPEAL
- Christianity is being challenged at all levels to conform
and compromise to the will of the majority. North Carolina is
experiencing political and corporate pressure for upholding a
Godly standard, but so are everyday Christians at school and
work. Two important cases were recently rejected on appeal as
Christians fought for the right to share their faith and hold
to Biblical convictions in the United Kingdom. Felix Ngole, a
Christian studying to be a social worker at the University of
Sheffield, has lost his appeal against expulsion after he was
dismissed from the school earlier this year for posting on his
Facebook page messages in favor of Biblical marriage. Felix was
advised that his Facebook post "may have caused offence
to some individuals" and had "transgressed boundaries
which are not deemed appropriate for someone entering the social
work profession." Following additional meetings, the Sheffield
committee concluded that Ngole's beliefs would negatively affect
his "ability to carry out a role as a social worker,"

- Jorge Bergoglio, Pope Francis, must be deposed. And here
- As I have said of Bergoglio from the earliest days of this
pontificate, the damage to souls caused by this Diabolical Narcissist
Peronist-Fascist is terrifying in its scale and speed, completely
unprecedented, and its enormity is known only to God. Satans
plan with Bergoglio with regards to The Church is simple: discredit
EVERYTHING with the simple yet nebulous words of Bergoglio. This
includes the entirety of the Decalogue, the Most Holy Rosary
of the Blessed Virgin, the existence of Hell, the Holy Sacrifice
of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist,
and the entire notion of Immutable Objective Truth. In other
words, complete chaos. Hagan lio, as the man himself said.
- In todays culture we all tend to focus inordinately
on ourselves, right now this very moment, regarding ourselves
as the culmination and pinnacle of human history, and forget
about the people who will come after we are dead and gone, most
especially how our actions today will affect future generations.
The massive crime against humanity that Bergoglio is executing
and consider for a moment that Bergoglio certainly has
the potential to be the one human being that ends up personally
responsible for the most loss of human souls to eternal damnation,
above Luther, above mohammed, above Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha),
above Paul VI Montini will carry on utterly unchecked
and uncontested through time until Our Blessed Lord and Savior
Jesus Christ returns in glory
UNLESS positive, proactive,
countermeasures are taken. Deposition and anathematization are
those countermeasures, and they must be executed by bishops.
Laymen cannot do this. Only bishops can do it.
- Satan has made his move. He has the See of Peter, and his
tool Bergoglio has a new diabolical meme or soundbite nearly
every day something to disorient, confuse, mislead or
repulse human souls AWAY from the Truth of Jesus Christ and His
Holy Catholic Church. As I have said from the beginning of this
epic disaster, Bergoglios words will be used as a flagrum
to mercilessly and ceaselessly scourge Our Blessed Lord
but there is a shield that can and must be erected, a response
that can and should be the instantaneous and first response to
every cry of,
- Well, Pope Francis said
- That response is:
- Pope Francis was deposed and anathematized for being
- Look, folks. It is late in the game. We dont have many
pieces left on the board. I am sorely tempted to make a joke
about our bishops falling long ago to the Enemys ranks
of queens, but I shall refrain. We pretty much have two choices,
either depose and anathematize Bergoglio, or resign.

- FREE SPEECH: AG LYNCH: DOJ DISCUSSED MAKING 'CLIMATE DENIAL'
- By Todd Beamon - March 10, 2016 - The Justice Department
has considered suing the fossil-fuel industry and others who
deny the existence of climate change, Attorney General Loretta
Lynch said. "This matter has been discussed," Lynch
told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. "We have
received information about it and have referred it to the FBI
to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we
could take action on."
Lynch's comments came under questioning by Democratic Sen. Sheldon
Whitehouse of Rhode Island, who likened the possibility of such
civil action to those brought against the tobacco industry during
the Clinton administration. "The similarities between the
mischief of the tobacco industry pretending that the science
of tobacco's dangers was unsettled and the fossil-fuel industry
pretending that the science of carbon emissions' dangers is unsettled
has been remarked on widely, particularly by those who study
the climate denial apparatus that the fossil fuel industry has
erected," Whitehouse said.

- BLOOD OF REVIVAL FOR AMERICA?
By David Eells March 9, 2016 (Davids notes in red)
- Pastor T.D. Hale had true dreams about the presidential election
of 0bama and he was right about his future plans for America,
since UBM brethren had many dreams that agreed. However, The
best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry. God uses
prayer and repentance to change things. Hale had a dream about
three years ago that after the death of an important person,
that many believe was Justice Scalia, there would be chaos coming
to America. Scalia left in what is his most important time. Many
decisions concerning the future of America will be able to be
turned to the left because he is missing. Contrary to procedure,
he was cremated in three days and without an autopsy and now
a left-wing liberal will likely replace him. Anyone should be
able to figure that out. Is it because of this murder that the
elites plans have to be overturned? Even if a conservative
is installed to make things look clean, he will be threatened
and blackmailed into submission, which has happened before.
- Pastor T.D. Hale: I had a dream about being in a large auditorium.
There had been a death of someone very important. It was not
revealed to me who it was. I just knew it was someone very important.
I thought maybe possibly it was a general, or even maybe a general
in the faith or something of that nature. Up in the front of
this huge auditorium was a casket, but it was covered in a flag,
an American flag. Then over the intercom, a voice came and said,
Remain seated as the President of the United States comes
in. On the left side, a couple of doors came open and in
came the limousine of the President of the United States. As
soon as it reached the front of the auditorium, oddly enough,
the only thing I can tell you is that limousine flipped over
and chaos happened within the auditorium. (This black limousine
has been named by them the Beast. Could it be that
President 0bama and the elite Beasts plans for America
during his time in power are overturned overthrown by
God because of fervent prayer?) Continued:
- RICH WILKERSON, JR., JR KANYE AND BIEBER'S CELEBRITY PASTOR,
AND COUNTERFEIT CHRISTIANITY
By: Joe Schimmel - What happens when celebrity pastors not only
fail to warn their congregations about immersing themselves in
the moral cesspool of pop culture, but also encourage them to
dive headlong into such filth with their mouths wide open? What
happens when these same pastors are leading (or being led by)
some of the most unrepentant and scandalous rap and pop stars
like Kanye West and Justin Bieber? What happens when they not
only endorse their music, but also actually participate in that
which is blasphemous and abominable to the Lord Jesus Christ?
It is with a heavy heart that I feel I must reveal what you are
about to read. What is taking place in the church is bringing
severe harm to the body of Christ and leaving a tragically compromised
and flawed witness of the gospel to the world that desperately
- Pastor Rich Wilkersons new reality program Rich
in Faith, produced by Oxygen Media, began airing on December
2, 2015. The show features Wilkerson building his Church in Miami,
Florida through gimmickry and endorsements by none other than
rap and pop stars, Kanye West and Justin Bieber! One member of
his church, after watching the first two episodes of Wilkersons
reality series, posted a comment under the trailer for the show,
I just watched the two episodes that have aired. I enjoyed
the show yet still didn't hear the word Jesus. Another
posted, I saw Pastor Rich got a new book out and in his
release party he had rappers of the world performing and stuff
like that.. but why?? I wouldn't have snoop dog performing in
the release party of my Christian book. I'm just saying.
- WHEN CHURCH BECOMES A CIRCUS
By: Joe Schimmel - Rich Wilkerson, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian
- When Wilkersons church was new, one gimmick he employed
was to offer to eat a live gold fish if 300 people attended.
Some time later, he offered to be zapped with a stun gun when
they hit 2,000 attendees. Today, Wilkerson no longer has to swallow
gold fish and be publicly zapped to get a crowd, because now
he has the endorsement of the notoriously scandalous Kanye West
and his former porn star wife, Kim Kardashian. West heard about
this new hip church in Miami that would blast rap music and is
more like a nightclub than a church. Kanye and Kim even had Wilkerson
officiate their marriage in Paris. Later, Justin Bieber, who
has also been known for his share of scandals, including visiting
a whorehouse in South America, visited Wilkersons church
as well. All this brought Wilkerson instant fame and led to his
current reality show as a hip pastor. Wilkerson and the celebrities
to whom he caters appear to be feeding off a symbiotic relationship
with one another; the celebrities benefit by looking less scandalous
and safe for a Christian audience and Wilkerson gets the huge
numbers he has craved and becomes a pop star in his own right.
- Wilkersons church is a place where one can feel comfortable
while involved in any number of sins and scandals. "Everyone
is welcome," Wilkerson preaches routinely from his pulpit,
"I don't care about your religious background, sexual orientation,
your skin color. You are welcome." (Source) One can be in
total rebellion to God and never have to feel uncomfortable hearing
about who will not inherit the kingdom of God, even though Paul
often preached this very message (1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Galatians
5:19-21; Ephesians 5:5-8). At Wilkersons church one can
be involved in adultery or homosexuality and not be concerned
about hearing about who will go to hell as Jesus often preached
(Luke 16:19-31; Matthew 7:21-23; 25:31-46; Revelation 14:9-12;
21:8). Wilkerson says, "I don't know who's going to hell.
I just know that followers of Jesus are going to Heaven
that's what the Bible says," he explains. "My message
isn't ever who's going where." (Ibid.)
- When faced with the notorious, immoral lifestyles of Kanye,
who is known for his profanely, diabolical and misogynistic lyrics,
and Kim Kardashian, who thrust herself into the limelight with
a sex-tape in 2007, and then by posing nude for Playboy, Wilkerson
states, I think I know who Ye is, and I think he's on a
journey. West is certainly on a journey, but the question
is where will it end and what is being done to steer him in the
right direction, along with his millions of fans who commit his
wicked lyrics to memory? "We have a church where it's really,
really comfortable to be on that journey says Wilkerson,
There's a come-as-you-are mentality." (Ibid.)
- Wilkerson doesnt seem very concerned about what Gods
Word says about right or wrong and sometimes speaks of God as
though He is some force out of Star Wars rather than the thrice
Holy God of Scripture, I come from a different perspective.
I dont think people are interested in a bunch of religion,
like tell me what I can and cant do. But I think people
are interested in having a relationship with a higher power.
RUBBER STAMPING THE WICKED
By: Joe Schimmel - Rich Wilkerson and Justin Bieber - When Wilkerson
was asked by Cosmopolitan about how Justin Bieber is doing, he
praised Bieber for his new single "What Do You Mean,
in which Bieber sings about a girlfriend wanting to make
love all night:
- I think he is doing great. It's a big day for him today
obviously. It is a great new song! I just saw him three days
ago in L.A., he's doing awesome. We are proud of him. (Source)
- Beibers accompanying video to the song "What Do
You Mean, which Wilkerson calls great, is salacious and
reportedly filled with steamy sex scenes. It is one thing for
a pastor to tacitly condone premarital sex, adultery and homosexual
behavior by saying little or nothing abut such issues by those
who need to hear it most, it is another thing to praise Bieber
publicly for one of his many songs that glorifies sexual sin
among his millions of fans.
- Something is terribly wrong when you have Hollywood and music
industry insiders repudiating the sexual perversion of those
in the industry, but you have pastors praising celebrities for
songs celebrating promiscuity. Girls star, Lena Dunham,
tweeted of Biebers song, "What Do You Mean,
Lets do away with pop songs where a girl nods yes
when she means no and vice versa, k? (Source)
- After the revelation that Charlie Sheen had been diagnosed
as HIV positive and allegedly continued to have relations with
countless prostitutes and other Hollywood stars,
Burt Reynolds stated in an interview:
- His father is a very, very decent man and a dear friend
of mine, I feel bad for him. But Charlie, I dont feel bad
for him. Hes getting what he deserves. If youre going
to misbehave like that, theyre going to get you
deserved it. He misbehaved badly. Very badly. (Source)
- PRAY FOR THE RAP AND POP STARS WHO ARE LEADING SO MANY AWAY
FROM THE LORD AND TO ETERNAL PERDITION
- By: Joe Schimmel - Peters prophetic warning that false
teachers in the last days would repeat the lies of the false
prophets of the past is quite instructive. When we examine the
lies of the false prophets in the past we see that they promised
salvation without repentance from sin:
- Because you disheartened the righteous with your lies,
when I had brought them no grief, and because you encouraged
the wicked not to turn from their evil ways and so save their
lives. (Ezekiel 13:22)
- Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a
horrible thing: the committing of adultery and walking in falsehood;
and they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one has
turned back from his wickedness. All of them have become to Me
like Sodom, and her inhabitants like Gomorrah
saying to those who despise Me, The Lord has said, You
will have peace; and as for everyone who walks in
the stubbornness of his own heart, they say, Calamity will
not come upon you.
I did not send these prophets,
but they ran. I did not speak to them, but they prophesied. But
if they had stood in My council, then they would have announced
My words to My people, and would have turned them back from their
evil way and from the evil of their deeds
heard what the prophets have said who prophesy falsely in My
name, saying, I had a dream, I had a dream!
(Jeremiah 23:14, 17, 21-22, 25)
- The apostle Paul clearly warned that we are not to be deceived
into believing a false grace message that would claim the wicked
will inherit the kingdom of God: Or do you not know that
the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be
deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous,
nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the
kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
- Indeed, Isaiah warned repeatedly, "There is no peace,"
says the LORD, "for the wicked," (Isaiah 48:22; 57:21),
and gave this promise to those who would repent: Let the
wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on
him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah
- Undeniably, grace has been turned into a license in thousands
of churches across the Untied States and such license shows up
daily in the lives of millions of professing Christians who behave
no differently than the wicked world around them. Such professing
believers are labeled hypocrites by the world and bring open
shame and disgrace to the name of Christ. Jesus poured out His
precious blood to save us from the penalty and the power of sin.
Gods Word states that all those who are in Christ are new
creatures and old things have passed away and all things have
become new (2 Corinthians 5:17). May the Lord help us to love
the lost and shine the light of Christ, so they can witness the
transformative power of the gospel of Jesus Christ in each of
us and come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and have new
life in Him.
- Pray, Pray, Pray!
- I want to encourage you to pray for the rap and pop stars
who are leading so many away from the Lord and to eternal perdition.
May the Lord give them true repentance that is demonstrated by
the fruit of righteousness and the proclamation of the biblical
gospel and the authentic, historical Jesus who died for our sins
and rose on the third day! Pray for the millions of fans who
follow them and have no idea that they are being led by Satans
army. Please pray for Rich Wilkerson and other teachers who are
preaching the false gospel of prosperity and greasy grace. As
a pastor, my heart breaks for those who are teaching such serious
false doctrines and condoning the wickedness of the world system
that so plagues the church. My heart breaks because I fear and
tremble, knowing that the scriptures declare that we will have
a stricter judgment (James 3:1-2), give an account for souls
(Hebrews 13:17), and that the blood of those who perish, will
be on our heads if we fail to preach repentance and the whole
counsel of God (Acts 20:21, 26-27). However, my heart breaks
even more for the countless souls that are led into darkness
by preachers who rubber stamp that which is so blatantly wicked
and even participate in it. Rich Wilkerson wasnt sure about
becoming a pastor and following in the footsteps of his father,
Rich Sr., a cousin of David Wilkerson. He says, "In my teenage
years, I strayed a little bit," referring to his drinking
and partying. "I was trying to fit in." (Source). This
desire to fit in and be conformed to the world still plagues
many leaders today and affects the churches they lead. God states
that by trying to be a friend of the world, we become enemies
of Christ: You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship
with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who
chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.

- JURY: POLYGAMOUS TOWNS [MORMONS] DISCRIMINATE AGAINST NONBELIEVERS
By JACQUES BILLEAUD - March 7, 2016, Associated Press - PHOENIX
Two polygamous towns in Arizona and Utah violated the
constitutional rights of nonbelievers by denying them basic services
such as police protection, building permits and water hookups,
a jury said Monday.
- The civil rights trial marks one of boldest efforts by the
government to confront what critics have long said was a corrupt
regime in Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah. The towns
were accused of doing the bidding of the Fundamentalist Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a radical offshoot of mainstream
Mormonism, which disavowed polygamy more than 100 years ago.

- OHIO PANEL APPROVES BILL TO
KEEP ABORTED BABIES OUT OF LANDFILLS WHILE ABORTIONS TO CONTINUE
- By Heather Clark - April 15, 2016 - COLUMBUS, Ohio
A House panel in Ohio has approved a bill that regulates the
disposal of aborted babies following discovery by the state attorney
generals office last year that the bodies of unborn children
had been dumped in landfills by medical waste companies.
- As previously reported, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine,
who identifies as pro-life and believes that abortion is morally
reprehensible, announced last December that his Charitable
Law Section found that the children were being either steam treated
or incinerated and then dumped into a landfill with household
and commercial trash.
- He said that the practice is illegal as it violates Chapter
3701-47-05 of the Ohio abortion law, which states that a fetus
shall be disposed of in a humane manner. DeWines
office, which was initially investigating Planned Parenthood
to determine whether the organization was selling body parts
in the state, found that Accu Medical Waste Service, Inc. in
Marietta had been serving the Cincinnati and Columbus Planned
Parenthood locations, and had transported the containers of aborted
babies to its steam plant where they were autoclaved and then
trucked to a landfill in Kentucky. The company severed its ties
with the abortion industry last week due to adverse attention
over the matter.

2016 - Democratic primary front-runner Hillary Clinton ran afoul
of both the pro-life and pro-choice sides of the abortion debate
Sunday when she said constitutional rights do not apply to an
unborn person or child.
- The unborn person doesnt have constitutional
rights, Mrs. Clinton said on NBCs Meet the

to make sure that child will be healthy, to have appropriate
Mrs. Clinton also said there is room for reasonable kinds
of restrictions on abortion during the third trimester
of pregnancy. Diana Arellano, manager of community engagement
for Planned Parenthood Illinois Action, said Sunday that Mrs.
Clintons comments undermined the cause for abortion rights.
- The comment further stigmatizes #abortion, Ms.
Arellano said in a tweet. She calls a fetus an unborn
child & calls for later term restrictions.
- Describing the fetus as a person or child
has long been anathema to the pro-choice movement, which argues
the terms misleadingly imply a sense of humanity. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/apr/3/hillary-clinton-unborn-person-has-no-constitutiona/
- I VISITED A CHURCH THAT
WANTS TO CONQUER DEATH GOES WITH THE STORY PROSPERITY
- By Zoltan Istvan - February 29, 2016 - Many people think
of transhumanism - the belief that humans can evolve through
science and tech as a secular movement. For the most part
it is, but there are a number of organizations that aim to combine
science and spirituality together.
- One of the largest is the Church of Perpetual Life, a brick
and mortar worship center near Miami, Florida that looks like
any other church. It has a minister, a congregation, and church
activities. The only difference is this church wants to use science
to conquer death. I was asked to speak at a Church of Perpetual
Life service while traveling across America on my Immortality
Bus a coffin-like campaign bus I'm using during my run
for president of the US (under the guise of the Transhumanist
Part). Services at the Church of Perpetual Life dont revolve
around worshiping a deity. They're passionate exploration of
life extension research. Its a group of people that want
to live forever, but also want belong to a spiritual community.
- Conversations are centered around how humanity can improve
itself through science, how we can overcome death with technology,
and how suffering can be broadly eliminated. The church itself
welcomes people of all religions, and sometimes explores concepts
of a benign creator in very nonspecific terms. But mostly church
services are dedicated to hosting invited speakers who make presentations
on the current status of the anti-aging field. For example, gerontologist
Dr. Aubrey de Grey, a Transhumanist Party anti-aging advisor,
spoke there recently. So did entrepreneur Martine Rothblatt of

over $2 million from the government between May 2013 and May
2015. The newspaper added that Abdullah P. faced legal troubles
in the past after schools and integration centers
were suspected of fomenting radical Islamic beliefs.
- One of the defendants facilities were shut down last
year because it posed an immediate danger to the
public, the newspaper reported.
- Revelations of sex parties inside one of Vinennas Islamic
schools come less than one month after a man was hospitalized
by a Shariah patrol and gangs of migrants battled
across the city. Roughly 50 men attacked each other with iron
bars, knives and wooden planks on March 6, WND reported. Police
were only able to arrest six suspects from Afghanistan, although
similar incidents have been reported in the cities of Graz, Linz,
Polten, Salzburg and Sankt.
