the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him.
But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the
watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the
people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person
from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood
will I require at the watchman's hand. So thou, O son of man,
I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore
thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
- "When I say unto the
wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not
speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall
die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from
it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity;
but thou hast delivered thy soul.

of man, speak unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, saying,
If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away
in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith
the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked;
but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn
ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?"

- 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
invite you to take this opportunity to say 'yes' to Jesus and

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. 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.
- Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have
an email group that gets information when we upload new information
and newsletters whenever it is possible time wise. We love the
Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God
has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior,

to keep on and endure to the end.
- It is Gods
will that we know the times (1 Ch. 12:32; Mat. 16:3) and that we be as wise as serpents
and harmless as doves.
- The Cephas
Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need
to be ready for the Lords coming. Are you sure that
you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out
of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof"

ETERNITY WITHOUT CHRIST IN OTHER WORDS HOW TO AVOID HELL.
- Published on Jan 1, 2013 - Jesus Christ is getting ready
to return, the rapture is at the door, revelation is happening,
the book is open, prophecy is being fullfilled in front of our
very eyes. Extreme weather changes, including earthquakes, tornadoes,
hurricanes. New diseases and viruses, wars around the world,

the latest news in relation to Bible prophecy. Millions of mutated

in Florida and biblical plages of locust invading Egypt and the
This special presentation should be shared with all the people
you love and care for, family and friends, Christians and non
believers alike. There is something here for everyone weather
you are a christian or not.
EARTHQUAKE MINDSHAKE makes a great salvation tool in helping
wake up the masses that still believe that everything is the
same as it once was and that all will continue on as at has in
the past. Things are not the same though, life as we once knew
it has changed. We were warned two thousand plus ago that these
things would happen, and folks it's going to get alot worse.
"EARTHQUAKE MINDSHAKE" will take you an a journey that
will leave you with your jaw dropped and your knees buckled at
the site of the power of nature and of the one who controls it
all. Are you a christian who has unsaved loved ones or people
you know who are in a backslidden state.
The future is just ahead and Bible prophecy is being fulfilled
before our very eyes.
Is world war 3 at our back door? Are we on the brink of seeing
a one world government and a new monetary system? Is the final
pope here now? And is the antichrist getting ready to take world
stage? Has the judgments of God begun to fall?
Is the rapture of the bride of Christ about to take place? Is
the church about to hear the trumpet of God and the voice of
many waters say come up hither.
Many people are saying all is okay, that the world will fix itself
but NOT THIS TIME. Time on this planet is almost up and I am
not talking about the Mayan prophecy's or Nostradamus. The prophecies
concerning the times in which we live were prophesied about thousands
of years ago and all that was written within those ancient texts
are now unfolding before us. Mass animal death's occurring around
the world, blood moons and solar eclipses, incurable disease
and natural disasters that are coming on all mankind. This is
a wake up call to us all, It's time to prepare for what is coming
next. ARE YOU READY to stand up, and look up for the soon return
of the king of kings and Lord of Lords Jesus Christ.
Fasten your seatbelt and get ready to take a hair splitting Revelation
ride!!! And experience the truth of where you are today and where
your future lies.
God is giving us his final warning today so that we can warn
the people we love and care about. While the world spins out
of control, we can live in peace having assurance that God is
in total control.
This video is not meant to scare anyone but to give hope in this
present time of trouble. God knows what he is doing and though
we live in dark times it will one day end with the glorious rapture
of his church.
THE DAYS HAVE ARRIVED, THE HOUR IS LATE we need to warn and wake
up the people we love. The the clock has jumped to one minute
before midnight and as I write these words the clock is counting
down and I pray that the church is not found in a deep slumber
but has it's lamps trimed, filled with the oil ready to meet
her King. It's up to you and I as believers to make our mark
while we still have breath in our lungs and yell from the rooftops
that time is almost up, to finish the race that has been set
We still have work to do and now is the time to make a differance.
WARNING the events that you are about to see are real and may
be disturbing to some viewers.
THE PROOF IS OUT THERE, IF YOU WANT TO SEE.
Put your spititual 4D glasses on now and let us begin our journey...
- Father, I would ask that you would open the eyes of the lost,
the backslider and of anyone who seeks your truth. Let them see
that Jesus your only Son is the only way out of this mess and
that you are simply just waiting for them to say yes to your
gift of salvation. Kings and queens the rich or the poor touch
their hearts and allow them to see the love that you have for
each one of them, in the mighty name of your Son Jesus Christ

- 7 THINGS PASTORS SHOULD TELL THEIR PEOPLE OFTEN
- Joe McKeever (edited) - Here are seven biblical truths we
pastors need to keep telling our people in the hope that eventually
most will get it.
- 1) Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the only Savior.
- How could we not keep the focus on the Lord JesusHis
identity, His life and ministry, His teachings, His headship
over the church, and His place in our livesif we are being
true to the Word? Pastor, keep telling themover and over
again; the theme never wears outWhy we make so much
- 2) The Church is an essential part of the Lords plan,
for now and forever. And we are most definitely not referring
just to your local congregation. As important as that isthis
will come as a surprise to a lot of lonely myopic pastorsthe
Kingdom of God is more than your church. When Jesus saved you,
He knew something you were about to find out: You cannot
live this new life in isolation. You need the family of God.
They hold onto you, you hold onto them. They instruct and nurture
you; you turn around and do the same. This symbiosis has been
Gods plan from early on. I will build my church,
the Lord said in Matthew 16:18.
- 3) Salvation is all about the cross. Salvation is not by
works of righteousness but humility, repentance, and faith in
Jesus Christ and what He did on Calvary. The threat to turn salvation
into a matter of works will never go away. Its grounded
in mans way of thinking, his human (and thus self-centered)
reasoning. To my knowledge, most of the religions of the world
teach variations of do this and youre saved
or do not do this and you are saved. Only one to
my knowledge proclaims that everything necessary has already
been done and our task is to repent and receive it (Him).
When people tell me they believe their good works will get them
to Heaven, I ask, Then, what was the point of the cross?
If all God had to do was tell us Yall be good now,
hear? then He sure went to a lot of trouble for nothing
by sending Jesus into this world to die on a cross for our sins.
- 4) We are not saved by good works, but saved unto
God works. (Eph. 2:10)
- Good works have a definite place in the plan of God for His
people. But they are the resultsthe fruits, the evidenceof
our salvation, not the means.
- 5) If you have faith, you will pray. In fact, nothing tells
the story about your faith like your prayer life.
- 6) A church exists by evangelism and missions as a fire exists
- Sharing our faith is not an option, not for the gifted only
(although admittedly some are more fluent and effective than
others in this), and not to be done sporadically. As you
go, make disciples was the command of our Lord in Matt.
- 7) The Bible is the inspired word of God and the spiritual
nutrition of believers.
- If you thought other church programs would crowd evangelism
off the agenda, know that life has a way of pushing Gods
Word out of the mind of believers. The process seems to be the
same for everyone, and works like this. You go a few days without
reading your Bible and soon, you find yourself resisting the
inner urge to get back to it. The more you cave in to that laziness
that resents picking up the Word and opening it, the more you
will find yourself saying (or thinking, or both): Ive
read the Bible. I know it already. Theres nothing new there.
Its boring. Those are all lies out of hell. You do
not know the Bible. You have not read it. (You may have read
at it, but there is a world of content there which
you have not yet mined.) It is not boring. You are boring, not
- Job said, I have esteemed the words of thy mouth more
than my necessary food.
- Repetition is a great teacher. In fact, it may be the best
teacher on the planet.

- ATHEISM - THE CULT OF DEATH
- By Todd Strandberg - As long as people have believed in God,
there have been those who take the opposing view. The ranks of
atheists have always been small, never amounting to more than
four percent of the population. The key problem with atheism
is that it lacks a strong selling point. The followers
of this view find purpose in life by attacking the validity of
the Holy Bible.
- Atheists are so opposed to anything linked to God that their
hatred gets in the way of common sense. One of their most grievous
errors is a cultic fixation with death. I have read the views
of several leading atheists and have found an almost universal
embracing of death. For them, life is just meant to come to an
- They reject any option that provides a potential solution
to the dying process. Atheists are all for someone wanting to
live longer, but if they desire to live forever-it suddenly becomes
a vice. They pride themselves on being free of religious dogma
yet they cling to one creed-In death there is no hope.
- MEDITATIONS ON THE PROMISES OF GODS WATCH CARE IN THE
- For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are
dust (Psa. 103:14). The truth stated in this Psalm refers
to much more than to general knowledge, such as the fact that
the Lord knows that we are fallen sinners. It means that He knows
the exact frame or condition of every saint and takes
that into consideration in His dealings with us. He knows that
we are made of the dust of the ground and that we are fallen
and that we will soon return to the dust (Gen. 2:7; 3:19). It
is true of even the most passionate saint that in me (that
is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing and that we live
in the body of this death (Rom. 7:18, 24).
- As a potter knows the character of each type of clay, the
Lord knows just how to deal with each saint to conform him to
the image of Christ. He being the potter, they the clay,
he knows what they are able to bear, and what not; that if he
lays his hand too heavy, or strikes too hard, or repeats his
strokes too often, they will fall in pieces: he knows the inward
frame of their minds, the corruption of their nature, how prone
they are to sin; and therefore does not expect perfect services
from them (John Gill). He considereth that great
and constant propension to evil which is naturally in all mankind,
and that therefore if he should deal severely with us, he should
immediately destroy us all. And He considers the weakness and
mortality of our natures, and the frailty and misery of our condition
(Matthew Poole). http://www.wayoflife.org
- THE RAPTURE AND THEN,ALL HELL ON EARTH
THIS IS A BIBLE STUDY TO COMFORT THOSE TROUBLED BY THE PRESENT
WORLD EVENTS AND THE DARKNESS OF THE POLITICAL EVILS. SOMETIMES
IT LOOKS LIKE THE GREAT TRIBULATION IS ALREADY HERE. THE HOLY
BIBLE IS PERFECT, THE RAPTURE WILL, WITHOUT QUESTION, OCCUR
BEFORE THOSE SEVEN HORRIBLE YEARS. If you do not believe
in the PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE there is no comfort I have from
the Bible to give you. If in this life only we have hope
in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. (1Cor. 15:19)
Our COMFORT is in His eternal presence.
- Things you will learn in this study:
1. The Book of Genesis is absolute and literal.
2. The Ark and the flood was a model picture of the Pre-tribulation
3. The judgment of Sodom and Gomarrah was also a type of the
4. The daily tribulation we presently endure and the Great Tribulation
are totally different.
5. Gods saints are loved and never made to suffer wrath
with the wicked.
6. Jesus came to save and deliver His Church from the final wrath
7. How could Jesus take His saints for His Bride after His wrath
has bashed the life out of them.
8. The Rapture of the saints before the HELL ON EARTH
is bedrock truth.
- There is no truth more fixed and dependable than Gods
faithfulness. His saints, redeemed by the Blood of His Son, Jesus
Christ, are His delight. We are not just His servants; we are
His friends and the future Bride of his Son. We are plainly instructed
by the Apostle Paul that we are joint heirs with Jesus Christ.
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. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our
spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then
heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that
we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
(Romans 8:15-17) Fear not, little flock; for it is your
Fathers good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Luke
- Understanding His faithfulness and knowing that we are heirs
of God and joint heirs with Christ are foundational truths for
the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. The wrath of God has never been
directed against His chosen that find grace in His presence.
Not one Scripture in the Word of God places the righteous and
the unholy together under a display of the Fathers wrath.
From the worship of Cain and Abel in Genesis chapter 4, God always
makes a distinction between obedience and disobedience. God accepted
Abels worship and rejected Cains bloodless sacrifice
and the manifestation of Gods Spirit in accepting Abels
worship left no doubt. Holy Justice can never condemn the righteous
for the deeds of the wicked. This is a principle that underlies
every revelation of the Holy Bible.

- The author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison
ministry. The man who walks with God always gets to his destination.
If you have a pulse you have a purpose.
- The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita
in the United States , especially in the minority races.
- Last month I attended my annual training session that's required
for maintaining my state prison security clearance. During the
training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing
the Roman Catholic, Protestant and Muslim faiths, who each explained
- I was particularly interested in what the Islamic Imam had
to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of
Islam, complete with a video.
- After the presentations, time was provided for questions
and answers. When it was my turn, I directed my question to the
Muslim and asked: 'Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand
that most Imams and clerics of Islam have declared a holy jihad
[Holy war] against the infidels of the world and, that by killing
an infidel, (which is a command to all Muslims) they are assured
of a place in heaven. If that's the case, can you give me the
definition of an infidel?'
- There was no disagreement with my statements and, without
hesitation, he replied,
- I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight.
All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill everyone who
is not of your faith so they can have a place in heaven. Is that
- The expression on his face changed from one of authority
and command to that of a little boy who had just been caught
with his hand in the cookie jar.'
- He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
- I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to
imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill those of your
faith or Dr. Stanley ordering all Protestants to do the same
in order to guarantee them a place in heaven!'
- The Muslim was speechless.
- I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend
when you and your brother clerics are telling your followers
to kill me! Let me ask you a question:
- Would you rather have your Allah, who tells you to kill me
in order for you to go to heaven, or my Jesus who tells me to
love you because I am going to heaven and He wants you to be
there with me?'
- You could have heard a pin drop.
- Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification'
training seminar were not happy with my way of dealing with the
Islamic Imam, and exposing the truth about the Muslims' beliefs.
- In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the
U.S. to elect the President. [Ednote: We already have a Muslim
president, who agrees that Christians have no place in the US,
considered to be terrorists.]
- I think everyone in the U.S. should be required to read this,
but with the ACLU, there is no way this will be widely publicized,
unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a

- THE SPEAR OF LONGINUS - THE CUTTING EDGE - LAYING THE FOUNDATION
- We live in prophetically terrible times. The world is, indeed,
swirling toward the global government, economy, and religion
prophesied to be the Kingdom of Antichrist. Every single prophecy
of the End of the Age is now either coming true, or the stage
is clearly being set for it to come true. On the one hand, we
have prophetic Scriptures written between 1,900 - 2.500 years
ago, coming true right here and right now! On the other hand,
we see the outworkings of an occult plan created approximately
230 years ago by the "Illumined Ones" -- Illuminati
-- that seeks to make the very changes in the world that the
Bible foretells! And, the Illuminati plan foresees the same major
goal as does prophecy: changing the world so Antichrist can appear
(Revelation 6:1-2). [...]
- Therefore, since each card in the Illuminati Card Game represents
something the Illuminati plans to do to bring down the Old World
Order so they can institute the New World Order, how could Steve
Jackson know, in 1995, that the Illuminati was going to create
some event that revolved around Jesus' crucifixion on Calvary?
When you examine this "Spear of Longinus" card, you
will note that the impact of the card is centered on Golgotha,
with all three crosses showing on the hills; Jesus' cross is
the most prominent. Notice the depiction that the fires of Hell
seem to be burning around the crosses on Calvary. Take a close
look at this card.
- The "Spear of Longinus" is shown in the foreground.
For those not familiar with the occult, the Spear of Longinus
is a magic relic worshipped by all occultists. They believe it

- PENTAGON MOVES TO PUNISH CHRISTIAN EVANGELISM IN MILITARY
Declares policy after meeting with strident atheist activist
Published: 1 day ago 5.1.2013
Mikey Weinstein has been on a crusade for more than a decade
against Christians in the military who speak about their faith
with others, but now top brass apparently are listening to him.
- After a private meeting between Weinstein and Pentagon officials
April 23, a Pentagon spokesman declared, Religious proselytization
is not permitted within the Department of Defense.
- The spokesman, Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen, added that court
martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case
basis, and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the outcome
in specific cases.
- Weinstein, according to Fox News Todd Starnes, told
officials at the meeting that U.S. troops who evangelize are
guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished, by the
hundreds if necessary.
- Weinstein recently declared: We face incredibly well-funded
gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their
fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version
of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nations
- In an interview with Fox News, Weinstein said the military
needs to begin prosecuting Christians who share their faith.

- TRANSCRIPT: FORMER CATHOLIC PRIEST MATTHEW FOX ON RATZINGER,
OPUS DEI AND THE BROKEN CATHOLIC CHURCH
By Rob Kall (about the author) Permalink (Page 1 of 4 pages)
General News 2/20/2013 - I interviewed Matthew Fox on February
13th. This is part one of a two part interview. Here's a link
to the audio podcast. Thanks to Don Caldarazzo for doing the
- I met Matthew Fox about nine years ago when we were both
speakers at the first Mythic Journeys conference an amazing event
bringing together writers, mythologists, psychologists, poets.
At the time, I was running the Storycon Conference on the art
science and application of story, which I'd founded two years
earlier, and which ran for six years.
- Matthew Fox was first stopped from teaching Liberation Theology
by Cardinal Ratzinger, then defrocked. He has since lived an
extraordinary life. But he also brings a unique point of view
on Pope Benedict, the next pope the college of cardinals will
choose and today's Catholic Church.
- Rob Kall: And welcome to the Rob Kall Bottom Up Radio Show,
WNJC 1360 AM out of Washington Township, New Jersey, reaching
metro Philly and South Jersey. My guest tonight is Matthew Fox.
Now, Matthew Fox has an interesting story, and I'm going to ask
him to tell us a little bit about it. I invited you on, Matthew,
and welcome to the show...
- Matthew Fox: Thank you. Good to be here.
- Rob Kall: I invited you on because you know a lot about the
Pope, Ratzinger, from a different perspective than many. Can
you explain that?
- Matthew Fox: Yes. First of all, I wrote a major book on him
a year ago, and I've been translating the German and Italian,
called The Popes War: Why Ratzinger's Secret Crusade Has Imperiled
the Church, and How It Can Be Saved. I was involved for twelve
years in a battle with Ratzinger, and you have to understand:
he has pursued and hounded Theologians for the last thirty-some
years. I was just one of a hundred and five  that he silenced
and expelled or hounded in some way. In fact, I list the 105
(they're from all over the world) in my book, at the end. Ratzinger
was a young Theologian at the Second Vatican Council, and he
was quite Progressive there; he complained about the Curia and
all the rest. But then in 1968, when he was a professor at Tubingen
University in Germany, the student riots were happening there
(as they were in Paris in Berkeley and every place else), and
the students invaded a faculty meeting and were honored to be
heard, ranted and raved; and all the faculty at the [incoherent
word] stayed except one guy, and that was Ratzinger, who stood
up and walked out. People said the next time they saw him, he
was an arch-Conservative.

There's a gruesome double murder mystery in New Jersey.
Police say who did it's not a mystery because someone is under

heads and hands.
The victims are reportedly from Jersey City, but their remains
were found buried in a town southwest of Philadelphia.
On the streets of Jersey City along Bergen Avenue, to the naked

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - Before It's News - Oh My people, why?
Why do you still go on with business as usual? I have warned
and I have warned for My people who are called by My name to
repent of your lukewarmness, complacency and conformity to this
world. Oh, My people, you do not know nor understand the gravity
of what is about to strike. Millions, I say, MILLIONS shall lose
their lives when this thing happens. Woe unto those who are at
ease in Zion. For now the sinners in Zion shall be afraid.
- Did I not warn you of these things in My word? Do you not
perceive that you are in the last days that My word speaks about?
- Oh, My people, why? Why do many of you not take My judgments
to heart? I will tell you why. It is because you are a backslidden
people and do not desire My holiness. You have set up for yourselves
teachers and prophets that speak lies of comfort to you. But
I tell you now, unless you all repent before me now, many of
you too shall be swept up with the wicked when this thing happens.
- AN OPEN LETTER TO CARDINAL O'MALLEY
Dear Cardinal Sean O'Malley,
- I appreciate your time, considering how preoccupied you are
politically these days. Your own Massachusetts state legislature
has just passed a new broader statute of limitation law allowing
your many child-raping priests to be tried more readily. Following
as this law does on the heels of the first-ever conviction and
jailing of an American Catholic Bishop, William Lynn, for concealing
child trafficking among his priests in Philadelphia, I'm sure
you feel the water lapping at your own feet.
- You and other members of the Catholic hierarchy are now in
more than a quandry, and not only because you are actively subverting
the sovereignty and the laws of the United States of America.
- Your church officials are now caught firmly between the law
of the land and of God, and church law. The latter orders you
to conceal child rape in your parishes, and to protect the rapist
by not telling the police of this crime. If you don't participate
in such a criminal conspiracy, you face immediate excommunication.
- And that fact alone means that you wouldn't be in your position
today if you hadn't aided child rapists.
- Of course, that papal law Crimen Solicitationas
has been around since 1929, and none of you seem to have been
that bothered by it up to now that is, until William Lynn's
imprisonment. But now that you, Sean O'Malley, can conceivably
go to jail for obeying church law and aiding in the torture and
soul-murder of children, it's a pimp of a different color, as
they say in Boston's south side.
- So I understand why you're part of Frank Bergoglio's "Reform
Commission" in Rome, and are trying to tip toe through the
present mine field with the right words and gestures. But worse
the luck for you, I have to piss on your parade a wee bit, Sean,
with some more bad news.
- By sending money to the Vatican, and obeying its laws, you,
Sean O'Malley, are already an undeniable accessory to a crime
against humanity, and to what American lawyers call "an
international obstruction of justice": the criminal interference
of one government with the laws and internal sovereignty of another.
- Of course, the Catholic church is an old hand at subverting
and overthrowing other governments; but their Bishops have not
until now been jailed for doing so. But now, your oath of office
and actions are quite simply helping the Vatican subvert the
laws and sovereignty of the United States of America. That makes
you an indictable traitor and a terrorist, under domestic laws.

- WEALTH OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IMPOSSIBLE TO CALCULATE
Kristopher Morrison - National Post - Fri, 08 Mar 2013 22:06
CST - It is impossible to calculate the wealth of the Roman Catholic
Church. In truth, the church itself likely could not answer that
question, even if it wished to. Its investments and spending
are kept secret. Its real estate and art have not been properly
evaluated, since the church would never sell them. There is no
doubt, however, that between the church's priceless art, land,
gold and investments across the globe, it is one of the wealthiest
institutions on Earth. Since 313 A.D., when Catholicism became
the official religion of the Roman Empire, its power has been
in near-constant growth. The church was able to acquire land,
most notably the Papal States surrounding Rome, convert pagan
temples and claim relics for itself. Over 300 years, it became
one of Europe's largest landowners.
- For the next thousand years, tithes and tributes flowed in
from all over Europe. Non-Christians and even fellow Christians
were killed and their property confiscated. For example, the
Fourth Crusade and the sack of Constantinople in the early 13th
century brought it gold, money and jewels.
- But by the beginning of the 20th century, the church had
faced several hundred years of turbulence. Protestantism had
claimed many of its members. The French Revolution at the end
of the 18th century outlawed the church and though Napoleon allowed
it to return, his relationship with various popes was stormy.
- VATICAN BANK EXPOSED NWO INFIGHTING?
January 5, 2011 "It emerged that US establishment-related
slush fund accounts had been located in, and seized from, the
Vatican Bank in Rome. The source of funds for these accounts
in almost every instance was found to be the US Treasury. Beneficiaries
of the covert Vatican accounts include Barack Obama, Michelle
Obama and each of the Obama children, Michelle Obama's mother,
all the Bushes and the Clintons, including Chelsea Clinton, Joe
Biden, Timothy Geithner, Janet Napolitano, several US Senators,
including Mitch McConnell, several US Congressmen including John
Boehner, several US Military Chiefs of Staff, the US Provost
Marshal, the US Judge Advocate General, the US Supreme Court
Chief Justice, John Roberts, several US Judges, the Pope, and
several cardinals. Big money was found in each of the accounts.
The longer the beneficiaries have been in office, the greater
the account balances were found to be. They range from a few
million USD to more than a billion USD in the case of John Roberts.
The total number of slush fund accounts so far identified at
the Vatican Bank is said to be between 600 and 700. This number
is likely to grow as international élite corruption investigations
spread worldwide. . ." Continued: http://nowewont.ning.com/profiles/

- THE HORROR!
- THE ARCHBISHOP OF BUENOS AIRES KNEELS DOWN TO RECEIVE THE
'BLESSING' OF PROTESTANT MINISTERS AND FR. RANIERO CANTALAMESSA
- BUENOS AIRES, 2006
- Of all the unthinkable candidates, Jorge Mario Bergoglio
is perhaps the worst. Not because he openly professes doctrines
against the faith and morals, but because, judging from his work
as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, faith and moral seem to have been
irrelevant to him. A sworn enemy of the Traditional Mass, he
has only allowed imitations of it in the hands of declared enemies
of the ancient liturgy. He has persecuted every single priest
who made an effort to wear a cassock, preach with firmness, or
that was simply interested in Summorum Pontificum.
- Famous for his inconsistency (at times, for the unintelligibility
of his addresses and homilies), accustomed to the use of coarse,
demagogical, and ambiguous expressions, it cannot be said that
his magisterium is heterodox, but rather non-existent for how
confusing it is. His entourage in the Buenos Aires Curia, with
the exception of a few clerics, has not been characterized by
the virtue of their actions. Several are under grave suspicion
of moral misbehavior. Continued:
- PENTAGON TAPS ANTI-CHRISTIAN EXTREMIST FOR RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE

version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our

- RETIRED FBI AGENT TELLS MILITIAS FEDS HAVE SET UP 30,000
Edited on Fri Aug-14-09 07:11 PM by RamboLiberal - In
Pensacola, Fla., retired FBI agent Ted Gunderson tells a gathering
of antigovernment "Patriots" that the federal government
has set up 1,000 internment camps across the country and is storing
30,000 guillotines and a half-million caskets in Atlanta. They're
there for the day the government finally declares martial law
and moves in to round up or kill American dissenters, he says.
"They're going to keep track of all of us, folks,"

issues an "indictment" of Barack Obama for fraud and
treason because, the panel concludes, he wasn't born in the United
States and is illegally occupying the office of president. Other
sham "grand juries" around the country follow suit.
- And on the site in Lexington, Mass., where the opening shots
of the Revolutionary War were fired in 1775, members of Oath
Keepers, a newly formed group of law enforcement officers, military
men and veterans, "muster" on April 19 to reaffirm
their pledge to defend the U.S. Constitution. "We're in
perhaps far more perilous than in 1775,"
says the man administering the oath. April 19 is the anniversary
not only of the battle of Lexington Green, but also of the 1993
conflagration at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas,
and the lethal bombing two years later of the Oklahoma City federal
building seminal events in the lore of the extreme right,
in particular the antigovernment Patriot movement. Almost 10
years after it seemed to disappear from American life, there
are unmistakable signs of a revival of what in the 1990s was
commonly called the militia movement. From Idaho to New Jersey
and Michigan to Florida, men in khaki and camouflage are back
in the woods, gathering to practice the paramilitary skills they
believe will be needed to fend off the socialistic troops of
the "New World Order."

- CULT: EASTERN LIGHTENING [CHINA]
- [Pleae pray for them] Here is an article from Asia Harvest
on the cult Eastern Lightning: Don't miss the updates at the
bottom of this article. By Paul Hattaway
- A few years ago I had the privilege of speaking to house
church leaders in a meeting on the outskirts of the huge city
of Xian in China. As the morning passed into afternoon I noticed
one young lady in her early 20s who was attending the meeting.
During the meal times and breaks she hobbled around the room,
painfully dragging her crippled right leg behind her. Her face
was gaunt, void of the expressions of deep joy that permeated
the faces of the other Christians in the meeting.
- At the end of the day's training the brother who organized
the meeting asked my coworker and I if we would pray for some
of the leaders. Of course we agreed, and the very first believer
to come up to us was the partially-crippled young woman. Thinking
she would ask for prayer for her injuries, I asked, "What
happened to your leg?" She immediately looked down at the
floor as tears welled up in her eyes.
- "Pastor," she quietly explained, "Several
months ago I was deceived into joining the Eastern Lightning
cult. When I realized they didn't believe the Bible and weren't
believers in Jesus, I tried to leave, but they wouldn't let me
go. To prevent my escape they severely beat my legs with an iron
bar. With the help of another Christian sister I was finally
able to flee, but the Eastern Lightning have sent agents to find
and murder me. My left leg is almost back to normal now, but
my right leg is badly damaged and it gives me great pain."

- We have received your inquiry regarding the guest speaker

(along with Beth Moore, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Moody
Bible Institute, Focus on the Family, and many othersseveral
of the most effective ministries and Christ-like teachers of
the Word and of the Christian life today). These websites (which
as far as we can tell are by non-Pentecostals) generally do not
report their qualifications to do research and condemn
her ministry specialty, contemplative prayer, (along with spiritual
formation and directiontwo other well-recognized forms
of in-depth discipleship) as a false version of Christianity,
more akin to something practiced in Eastern religions. Therefore,
we want to respond to the issues at the root of this misunderstanding.
- WHEN GOOD MEN DO SOMETHING
- May 13, 2013 - Most of us are familiar with Edmund Burkes
famous quote: "All that is necessary for the triumph of
evil is that good men do nothing.
- The norm today seems to be today that this circumstance is
all-too-common. Principled men and women at least seem to be
in short supply, for both big and small issues. That was not
the case last week within the Calvary Chapel family.
- In this space last week, I discussed the World Vision-sponsored
Hope for the Holy Land event held at North Coast
Calvary Chapel, in California. The headline for last weeks
Israel Watch was:
- Calvary Chapel Breached
- Happily, though the event took place as schedule, many people
were aware of it and the attempt to infiltrate the Calvary Chapel
movement has, so far as I know, been squashed. I will have a
full report this week on the events that transpired on Friday
evening, and the days leading up to it. As background, World
Vision brought together activists Sami Awad, Lynne Hybels, and
Mae Cannon to discuss their perspectives on the Arab-Israel conflict.
- I knew Israel would be blamed for the conflict, because thats
what the left does. Id heard these presentations before.
What made the story potentially explosive was the fact that apparently
for the first time, a Calvary Chapel was hosting
such a symposium. And you know that no Likudnik or Christian
Zionist would be invited to speak and take part in the discussion.
The point of groups like Hope for the Holy Land is
that they present the Palestinian narrative. This gigantic story
has been going on for some time, but it seems that just now,
many pro Israel supporters are becoming aware of it.
- Thats good.
- Whats better is that the Calvary Chapel leadership
stepped up to confront this agenda, and Im not aware of
this kind of bold leadership from any other denomination, association,
or whatever you want to call it. Chuck Smith publicly denounced
it, and others made it clear that Homey Dont Play That,
at least in Calvary Chapel circles.
- Some took me to task for the wording of the headline. I understand
the point, although from my perspective, the wording was precise.
It is exactly because the Christian Palestinianists have sought
to burrow-into conservative circles that the North Coast decision
was so newsworthy. Thats the agenda: infiltrate the traditionally
strong groups of pro Israel support, among them to varying degrees
CC, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the Assemblies of God.
At the risk of confusing or angering some, I believe the latter
two are going to eventually swallow the Palestinian line. There
are reasons to believe thats already taking place. Calvary
Chapel wont be, however. Continued:

wheelchair after celebrating Sunday Mass in St. Peter's Square.
The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, shook, then slumped
in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him.
- The television station of the Italian bishops' conference
reported Monday that it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed there
was "no doubt" that Francis either performed an exorcism
or a prayer to free the man from the devil.
- The Vatican was more cautious. In a statement Tuesday, it
said Francis didnt intend to perform any exorcism.
But as he often does for the sick or suffering, he simply intended
to pray for someone who was suffering who was presented to him.
- Fueling the speculation is Francis obsession with Satan,
a frequent subject of his homilies, and an apparent surge in
demand for exorcisms among the faithful despite the irreverent
treatment the rite often receives from Hollywood. Continued:

"ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an

you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee
on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also (New Testament).
And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat,
let him have thy cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee
to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee,
and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye

Homosexual former teacher pushes bill through state assembly
- Published: 05/10/2013 at 8:36 PM Drew Zahn
- The California State Assembly passed a bill Thursday mandating
schools permit boys to play on girls athletic teams and
utilize the ladies locker room if they gender identify
as girls or vice-versa for girls identifying as boys.
- The bills author, openly homosexual San Francisco Democrat
Tom Ammiano, has been an activist for lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, issues for decades and reportedly
became in 1975 the first San Francisco public school teacher
to make his homosexuality public. Ammiano later co-founded an
LGBT organization with Harvey Milk, the homosexual activist about
whom Hollywood made a recent feature film and California schools
celebrate an annual day of remembrance. Continued: http://www.wnd.com/2013/05/state-ordering-girls-locker-rooms-open-to-boys/#ggDy1Ofki8gEr6XF.99
- OBAMA SURRENDERS IN OBAMACARE BATTLE
Voluntarily seeks dismissal of appeal over health-care mandate
- Published: 05/06/2013 at 11:58 AM - Tyndale House Publishers
v. Sebelius, moves forward. The Obama administration has surrendered
in a key fight with a Christian publisher over the abortion pill
mandate in Obamacare, asking a federal court to dismiss an appeal
of a ruling that prevented application of the mandate.[...]
- ADF noted that the administrations retreat marks
the first total appellate victory on a preliminary injunction
in any abortion pill mandate case.
- Apparently, ADF said, Obama is nervous about trying
to defend its position that a Bible publisher is not religious
enough for a religious exemption to the mandate.
- Bible publishers should be free to do business according
to the book that they publish, said Senior Legal Counsel
Matt Bowman. The government dismissed its appeal because
it knows how ridiculous it sounds arguing that a Bible publisher
isnt religious enough to qualify as a religious employer.
For the government to say that a Bible publisher isnt religious
is outrageous, and now the Obama administration has had to retreat
- We will continue to argue that the administration cannot
disregard the Constitutions protection of religious freedom
for all family business owners and must offer a comprehensive
exemption to the mandate, Bowman added.
