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

- 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.

an email group that gets information when we upload new information

will that we know the times (1 Ch. 12:32; Mat. 16:3) and that we be as wise as serpents

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"

- WHY DO WE TAKE JESUS WORDS ABOUT THE FIVE FOOLISH VIRGINS
- It is foolish for us to be so careless about the great Catching
Away that may happen before this broadcast is over or before
you read these words. Lets not talk about those we consider
unprepared, but about those the Bible leaves no question whom
are ready. The Bible is a perfect book and the Lord is speaking
excitedly about His Bride.
- Here are things Jesus and the Bible says about His Bride
being ready to go when he comes:
- 1. Jesus said the Wise Virgins had oil in their vessel, and
fire in their lamps. Then all those virgins arose, and
trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give
us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered,
saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but
go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while
they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready
went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward
came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein
the Son of man cometh. (Matthew 25:7-13) Continued: http://www.pawcreek.org/open-bible-dialog/the-rapture-and-the-oil-of-the-holy-ghost

he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great
is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils,
and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean
and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the
wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed

the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right scepter. Thou lovest righteousness,
and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed
thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments
smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces,
whereby they have made thee glad. Kings daughters were
among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the
queen in gold of Ophir. The kings daughter
is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold. She
shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the

- IDENTIFICATION OF THE TWENTY-FOUR ELDERS
The identification of the twenty-four elders has generated much
debate.  Some say they represent the Tribulation martyrs.
However, this identification seems unlikely, since the twenty-four
elders as depicted in Revelation 4:4 already appear to be in
a resurrected state. The Tribulation martyrs, by contrast, will
not be resurrected until a later point just prior to the inauguration
of the millennial kingdom (Rev. 20:4). Moreover, the Tribulation
martyrs are distinguished from the twenty-four elders in Revelation
7:13-14. These verses say,
- "Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, 'These
who are clothed in the white robes, who are they, and where have
they come from?' I said to him, 'My lord, you know.' And he said
to me, 'These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation,
and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood
of the Lamb'" (italics added).
- HOLINESS REQUIRED BY GOD
- But my prayer is that God would so work by His Spirit as
to make blind eyes to see the exceeding sinfulness of sin, that
there would be mourning over it, for this is our only hope. Oh,
how our hearts should cry to the Lord for the truth of His Word
that appeals not to our fleshly desires or to our fleshly emotions,
but to that which cuts off our flesh and lays us bare before
God in confessing and repenting of our sins! We should cry to
Him to work in our hearts by His Spirit, that holiness of thought,
word and action would characterize our hearts and lives [...]
- REPENTANCE IS GIVEN
- A man who sows to his flesh continually has never been saved;
hes never been born again. Why? Because under Holy Spirit
conviction we are given the grace to repent, and in repentance
we learn to hate sin, to abhor it, to loathe ourselves, and to
flee by faith to Christ for deliverance from sin. We know that
sin has not been eradicated, for it is still the plague of our
hearts; but sin is no longer the practice and rule of our lives.
It cannot be, for the soul whom God saves has had a new nature
and a new heart put within; and he now desires holy things and
walks in the way of righteousness. He knows in himself that this
is true, because the Holy Spirit has worked in him the things
found in Gods Word. He reads in Ezekiel 36:26 about the
new heart that God has given him; and in II Peter 1:4 about the
new nature he has been given. He finds in 1 John 3:9 that he
has been born of God, and that he who is born of God does not
make sin the practice and rule of his life.
Why? Because His seed (the seed of God) remaineth in him, and
he cannot make sin the practice and rule of his life anymore.
He hears the Word say, Love not the world, neither the
things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the
love of the Father is not in him (I John 2:15). http://thepowerofgod777.blogspot.com/

Wow...read this one! Then check out the suggested web sites!!!
Many of the emails that I have sent or forwarded that had any
anti-Obama information in it were negated by Snopes. I thought
that was odd. Check this out. For some time weve seen reports
that Elaina Kagan was Obamas attorney fighting those pesky
"he isnt a citizen" law suits. Lawsuits that
Snopes says dont exist or at least that Kagan didnt
represent Mr. Obama in those suits. Guess what ... they lied!
She did represent Obama.
- [...] Snopes is heavily financed by George Soros, a big time
supporter of Obama! In our search for the truth department, we
find what I have suspected on many occasions. Read More
I went to Snopes to check something about the dockets of the
new Supreme Court Justice. Elena Kagan, who Obama appointed,
and Snopes said the email was false and there were no such dockets.
So I Googled the Supreme Court, typed in Obama-Kagan, and guess
what? Yep, you got it; Snopes lied! Every one of those dockets
So, here is what I wrote to Snopes:
Referencing the article about Elana Kagan and Barak Obama dockets:
The information you have posted stating that there were no such
cases as claimed and the examples you gave are blatantly false.
I went directly to the Supreme Courts website, typed in Obama
Kagan and immediately came up with all of the dockets that the
article made reference to. I have long suspected that you really
slant things but this was really shocking. Thank You. I hope
you will be much more truthful in the future, but I doubt it.
That being said, I'll bet you didn't know this:
Kagan was representing Obama in ALL the petitions to prove his
citizenship. Now she may help rule on them. Folks, this is really
ugly. Chicago Politics and the beat goes on and on and on. Once
again the US Senate sold us out!

An ex-military man tries his hand at writing, publishes

the twist in the tale: The true identity of the author is none

- CHURCH AXES RAINFOREST TREES TO MAKE WAY FOR POPE'S VISIT
- The deforestation stirs anger over a papal visit already
criticized for passing exorbitant costs onto the people of Brazil
- Published on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 by Common Dreams - Sarah
Lazare, staff writer
In preparation for Pope Francis's late-July visit to Brazil for
World Youth Day, local Catholic Church leaders have chopped down
more than 300 ancient trees from the endangered rainforest in
Serra da Tiririca State Park to make way for large numbers of
pilgrims expected to attend. The deforestation exposed by Brazilian
media over the weekend stirred outrage among Brazilian authorities
and environmentalists, who believe World Youth Day would be better
celebrated by showing a commitment to the earth's future.
- Axel Grael, deputy mayor of Niterói near the site
of the deforestation blasted the mass tree felling to the media.
"The incident is lamentable," Grael told O Globo Newspaper.
"An event for youth should be educational and demonstrate
a commitment to the environment and the future. This removal
is a criminal act."
- The tree cutting scandal comes on the heels of controversy
over the soaring costs of the pope's visit. The pope had planned
to fund his visit by charging pilgrims a hefty price to attend
World Youth Day events. However, when fewer pilgrims registered
than expected, the Catholic Church asked Brazil to make up the
difference by chipping in $39 million. Continued: http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/07/16-0
- RICK WARREN UNCERTAIN IF HOMOSEXUAL BEHAVIOR IS SINFUL
- Friday Church News Notes, May 17, 2013, David Cloud - Excerpted
from Rick Warren Says "Gays Go to Heaven," Christian
News, Nov. 29, 2012: "Controversy is stirring over recent
comments made by Rick Warren, author of the best-selling book
The Purpose-Driven Life and megachurch leader of Saddleback Church
in California, who stated that homosexual behavior "might
be" sinful, and that he believes homosexuals go to Heaven.
... During an interview this week with the Huffington Post, Warren
was asked by Marc Lamont Hill if having romantic feelings for
a member of the sameSex is a sin. ... "No, it's not a sin
to love somebody," Warren said. "It might be a sin
to have [sexual activity] with them," he added. "It
might be." ...
- Later during the interview, when Hill asked Warren if he
believes homosexuals will go to Hell, he replied that they will
not. "No, not because they're gay," he said. "We
go to Hell because we choose to reject the grace of God."
When Hill asked what happens to a homosexual that accepts Jesus,
Warren responded enthusiastically. "He's going to Heaven!"
he declared. "Without a doubt."...
- Peter LaBarbera, the president of Americans for Truth About
Homosexuality ... stated that he was shocked at Rick Warren's
comments. "You don't want to give the impression that it's
fine and dandy to live the homosexual lifestyle and as long as
I believe in Jesus, I can still go to Heaven," he said.
"It's one thing to have attractions and [fight] that, [and
another to embrace homosexual behavior]." ... "When
you accept Christ, your behavior changes," LaBarbera said.
"And the attitude is [people like Warren] don't want to
talk about changes.
We know that God changes homosexuuals,
so why isn't Rick Warren saying that?" ... "What part
of Romans 1 doesn't Rick Warren understand? It's so clear,"
- "When you make statements like these, you end up losing
the Biblical sense, and the Biblical sense is that this is an
abomination.".. LaBarbera said that Warren should not only
have called homosexual behavior sin, but should have gone deeper
to the root issue. "It's also sinful to lust after another

- FOSSIL DRIVES EVOLUTIONISTS BATTY
- Friday Church News Notes, May 17, 2013, David Cloud - The
following is from Creation Moments, April 4, 2013: "I.m
sure everyone has noticed that whenever one of those interesting
nature programs on television show an especially clever design
in nature, the program is always quick to explain how this came
about by evolution. One good example is the unusual hearing ability
of the moth. Night flying moths have hearing organs that are
able to hear the ultrasonic signals used by bats.
- The bats use these signals to navigate and to find food,
which includes the moths. However, evolutionists never want anyone
to think about a Creator Who might have given the moths the ability
to hear one of their main predators.
- So they quickly explained that as moths evolved, they developed
the ability to hear the bats in response to bat attacks. Several
years ago, a fossilized egg from a night flying moth was discovered.
Evolutionists said that the egg was half again as old as any
evidence of the first bat. Yet the egg clearly belongs to a moth
species that can hear bats. Evolutionary scientists said that
this discovery was most puzzling. They said that evolution would
have no reason to evolve this species of moth before bats existed.
Those of us who believe the Word of our Creator in the Bible
realize that all living things were made within a few days of
each other. We see around us how each was designed in a way that
keeps in mind the design found in other creatures. Moths have
always been moths, and bats have always been bats. There's nothing
puzzling about it at all." http://www.wayoflife.org
- EPISCOPAL LEADER SAYS DEMON POSSESSED GIRL MORE GODLY THAN
- Friday Church News Notes, May 31, 2013, David Clouod - Katharine
Jefferts Schori, head of the ultra-liberal Episcopal Church in
America, says that Paul was wrong in casting the demon out of
the girl in Ephesus and that she was probably more godly than
he was. Speaking on the island nation of Curacao, Jefferts Schori
said: "Paul is annoyed, perhaps for being put in his place,
and he responds by depriving her of her gift of spiritual awareness.
Paul can't abide something he won't see as beautiful or holy,
so he tries to destroy it. It gets him thrown in prison. That's
pretty much where he's put himself by his own refusal to recognise
that she, too, shares in God's nature, just as much as he does
mayybe more so!" ('Episcopal Leader Claims St. Paul
Was Wrong,' Christian Post, May 23, 2013). If apostasy is a sign
of the times (and it is!), the hour is very late indeed! http://www.wayoflife.org
- VERMONT GOVERNOR SIGNS EUTHANASIA LAW
- Friday Church News Notes, May 31, 2013, David Cloud - On
May 20, Vermont became the fourth state in the U.S. to allow
doctors to prescribe lethal medication to terminally ill patients
('Vermont Governor Signs,' Los Angeles Times, May 20, 2013).
The other states are Oregon, Washington, and Montana. Barbara
Coombs Lee, president of the euthanasia activist organization
Compassion & Choices, says Vermont's action "will boost
support for death-with-dignity bills nationwide."
- Under Vermont's bill a patient must be at least 18 years
old and suffering from an 'incurable and irreversible disease'
(an ephemeral thing in light of the deep imperfection of modern
medicine), with less than six months to live. The patient must
make a request from his doctor and two physicians must approve.
Euthanasia is man taking God's prerogative into his own frail
and incapable hands. (For more on this subject see 'Do We Have
the Right to Die?' at www.wayoflife.org;

- RICK WARRENS CONFERENCE PROMOTES IN ESSENTIALS
- Friday Church News Notes, June 28, 2013, David Cloud - The
Exponential Conference, which will be held at Rick Warrens
church in October 2013, will promote the in essentials
unity philosophy that shoves a large number of biblical
issues into the non-essential category for the sake
of a broader unity and ministry. The announcement for the conference
says that their spiritual DNA includes the following:
In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all
things charity with a precious few essentials. Diversity of models
and approaches. We seek to platform the aggregation of what God
is up to rather than one model or approach. We seek to work synergistically
with others to accomplish more together than the sum of the individual
parts (m.exponential.org). The same principle is being
promoting by a rapidly growing number of influential fundamental
Baptist preachers, as we have documented in our free eBook In
Essentials Unity. They currently draw the line of non-essentials
at a different place than Rick Warren and his crowd, but that
is only because they are at the beginning of the non-essential
slippery slope. Once you buy into any part of this unscriptural
philosophy, there is no end to its progression. It broadens your
sphere of relationship, and as your sphere of relationship grows
your list of non-essentials grows, and the second
generation routinely pushes the list much farther than the first.
This is one of the many reasons why I am warning that most independent
Baptists will be emerging within 20 years. http://www.wayoflife.org
- MORMONS TO USE MORE TECHNOLOGY, LESS DOOR-TO-DOOR
- Friday Church News Notes, June 28, 2013, David Cloud - The
Mormons are sending out record numbers of missionaries, and they
are changing the rules to allow the missionaries to use more
technology and less door knocking. Mormon leaders announced on
June 23 that their missionaries will be allowed to use the Internet
to recruit new members, whereas before Internet usage was limited
to once a week and only for communicating with friends and family
back home (Mormons to Do Less Door-to-Door, AP, June
25, 2013). During some parts of the day, they will use social
media such as FaceBook, blogs, e-mail, and text messages. Matt
Martinich, a Mormon who
- analyzes membership and missionary numbers, says that door-to-door
work has not
- been effective for many years. There will be 85,000 Mormon
missionaries by the end of 2013, which is 15,000 more than the
previous high. Young men serve two years, while young women serve
for 18 months. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
(LDS or Mormon) was founded in the 1800s by Joseph Smith, who
claimed that John the Baptist ordained him to the priesthood
of Aaron and charged him with founding a new church, and
- an angel showed him a book written on gold plates that, once
transcribed by means of the Urim and Thummim, became the Book
of Mormon. In spite of its bogus history, the Mormons grew rapidly,
built a massive temple in Salt Lake City, Utah, and today claim
over 14 million members worldwide, though that apparently includes
anyone who has ever been baptized by them. http://www.wayoflife.org
- CHELSEA CLINTON LAMENTS THAT HER GRANDMOTHER HAD NO ACCESS
TO ABORTION SERVICES
- Friday Church News Notes, June 28, 2013, David Cloud - Speaking
at the recent Women Deliver conference in Malaysia, Chelsea Clinton
lamented that her maternal grandmother was the child of unwed
teenage parents who did not have access to services that
are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide (Chelsea
Clinton Laments, LifeNews.com, June 20, 2013). Apparently
Chelsea, daughter of Bill and Hillary Clinton, believes that
it would have been fine if her grandmother had aborted her mother,
since the major service provided by Planned Parenthood
is abortion. They perform an average of one abortion every 94
seconds. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, repeatedly
referred to the lower classes and the unfit as human waste
not worthy of assistance, and proudly quoted the extreme eugenic
view that human weeds should be exterminated
(Edwin Black, War Against the Weak, p. 127). Sanger advocated
abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia. Calling large families
immoral, she said, The most merciful thing
that the large family does to one of its infant members is to
kill it (Sanger, Woman and the New Race, chapter 5). (For
more on this see Eugenics and Darwin at www.wayoflife.org.)
Women Deliver is a feminist advocacy organization, one of the
goals of which is universal access to reproductive health,
a euphemism for birth control and abortion rights, yet it is
little girls that bear the brunt of this philosophy, as a disproportion
of abortions target females. China alone aborted 336 million
babies since its one child policy was inaugurated
in 1971 (Chinas One-Child Policy, Breitbart,
Mar. 22, 2013). And far more baby girls have been killed than
boys, so that there is now a shortage of wives for Chinese men
who want to marry. Some parts of India also have a shortage of
females due to sex_selection. Women Deliver claims to love women,
while advocating the murder of unborn female babies. Apart from
Bible prophecy, it would be impossible to understand what is
happening today, but we thank the Lord for the great light He
has so graciously given to those who have ears to hear. This
know also, that in the
- last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers
of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers,
disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection,
trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers
of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of
pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness,
but denying the power thereof: from such turn away (2 Tim.
- WHAT BROUGHT EVANGELICALISM TO THIS PLACE
Jun/19/13 06:03 by David Cloud - The following is excerpted from
The Emerging Church is Coming, a free eBook available from www.wayoflife.org.
- Modern evangelicalism is a large house with many
rooms. There are rooms that promote a female concept of God.
Rooms that cast doubt upon the necessity of the blood atonement
of Christ and eternal hellfire. Rooms where same sex marriage
is acceptable. Rooms that promote the heresy of universalism.
Rooms where Mary is an intercessor with God. Rooms that practice
mind-emptying meditation. Rooms that are lined with
books by ancient heretics.
- At times those in the more conservative rooms will issue
mild warnings about those in the more liberal rooms,
but in practice evangelicalism is one big family, because the
conservative rooms arent walled off from the
most liberal of rooms.
- There are many pathways that lead to all of the rooms, such
as the pathway of contemporary praise music, the pathway of ecumenical
evangelism, and the pathway of contemplative prayer.
- What has brought evangelicalism to this terrible place and
what must Bible-believing Baptists and fundamentalists watch
- The evangelical movement took a dramatic new turn in the
mid-20th century, and we see the shocking fruit of it today.
It is large, influential, wealthy, intellectually interesting,
but it is also filled with worldly compromise and heresies.
- How did evangelicalism come to the place where some of its
most prominent leaders accept a novel (The Shack)
depicting God as a non-judgmental, rock & roll-loving woman?
- Following are some of the things that have brought evangelicalism
to this place, and these are the very things that are sweeping
into many fundamentalist Bible-believing churches.
- As for independent Baptists in particular, they are at the
same place today that the New Evangelicals were just a few decades
ago. Shallow Evangelism and Confusion about the Gospel

- ANOTHER ISRAELI MINISTER CALLS FOR BUILDING THE THIRD TEMPLE
- Friday Church News Notes, July 19, 2013, David Cloud - Uri
Ariel has become the second Israeli government minister in a
year to call for building the Third Temple. Speaking at an archaeological
conference near ancient Shilo, where the Tabernacle was located
in the day of Samuel, Ariel said, Weve built many
little, little temples [referring to synagogues], but we need
to build a real Temple on the Temple Mount (Minister
Calls for Third Temple, The Times of Israel, July 5, 2013).
Ariel, Israels Housing and Construction Minister, is a
member of the Jewish Home party.
- In 2012 Zevulun Orlev, another Jewish Home MK, called for
rebuilding the Jewish Temple, though he acknowledged that removing
the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque would mean that the billion-strong
Muslim world would surely launch a world war. It will probably
be up to the antichrist, who will come on the scene as a man
of peace and a great world problem solver, to make the building
of the Third Temple possible. When he shows his true colors,
he will sit in that temple and require the world to worship him.
- Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall
not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man
of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth
himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped;
so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself
that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). http://www.wayoflife.org
- KNOWLEDGE SHALL INCREASE
- Friday Church News Notes, July 19, 2013, David Cloud - About
2,500 years ago, during the Persian Empire, an angel told the
prophet Daniel, But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,
and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run
to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased (Daniel 12:4).
We are seeing a dramatic fulfillment of this in our day. Recent
inventions include the following:
- Intravenous oxygen injection. Scientists at Boston Childrens
Hospital have invented an injection filled with gas-filled microparticles
that delivers oxygen directly into the bloodstream for patients
who cannot breathe, reducing the incidence of organ injury and
cardiac arrest. Animals have been kept alive without breathing
for 15 minutes (Medical News Today, July 1, 2012).
- Advanced biological computer. Israeli scientists have developed
an advanced molecular computer built entirely of biomolecules,
such as DNA and enzymes, that can manipulate genetic codes (Technion
Scientists Develop, Israel National News, May 23, 2013).
The biological computer can perform long division of binary numbers
and can do iterative computation, which means it uses output
as a new input for subsequent computations.
- FDA-approved bionic eye. The FDA has approved a first generation
bionic eye system that will regain some degree of sight to some
blind people (Can a Bionic Eye See, Popular Science,
May 20, 2013). The system isnt like normal vision, but
it has made it possible for test patients to see black and white
and discern shades of gray.
- 3D object generated using brain waves. A Chilean tech company
claims to have created the first physical object using a brain
computer-interfaced with a 3D printer (Mind Control,
Fox News, May 23, 2013). The object resembles the arm of a toy

- THE SOLUTION TO DEPRESSION
- Friday Church News Notes, July 19, 2013, Daid Cloud - The
following is excerpted from John Phillips commentary on
Psalm 119: My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou
me according to thy word (Psa. 119:25). There can
be little doubt that the psalmist was in the grip of deep depression.
He was flat on his face in the dust. He had come to the end of
himself and his own resources. At this point our society would
advise us to see a psychiatrist, seek professional help. ...
- The psalmist makes a different suggestion. He says to the
Lord, Quicken Thou me. He was going to air his problems
all right, but he was going to take them to the Lord. He was
going to seek a counselor--the counsel of the Word of God. There
are very few problems in this life that cannot be solved by a
thorough-going, honest exposure of ones life to the Scriptures.
To do that is the greatest therapy in the world.
- The psalmist asked God to quicken him, that is,
to put new life into him. What he needed was a stiff dose of
Scripture, taken with a mixture of faith, every day. Try it.
Read your Bible consistently. Say with Samuel, Speak, Lord,
Thy servant heareth. The Bible is a book of people and
principles. Sooner or later, God will confront us in the pages
of His Book with the basic cause of our problem and with His
inspired, infallible solution to that problem. The psalmist had
discovered the best way of all to handle depression. But we must
be prepared. The Bible will not hedge or redefine sin. It will
put its finger unerringly on the sin question, frequently at
the root of other problems of life. http://www.wayoflife.org

A rather awkward exchange occurred on Fox News' "Spirited

Green somewhat incredulous that Muslim scholar Reza Aslan could
write a book about Jesus Christ.
- Aslan's book, "Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of
Nazareth," pieces together gospel and many historical sources
to paint a picture of Jesus and the time in which he lived.

the founder of Christianity?" Green asks at the beginning
of the interview.
- "Well, to be clear, I am a scholar of religions with
four degrees, including one in the New Testament, and fluency
in biblical Greek, who has been studying the origins of Christianity
for two decades," Aslan says, "who also just happens
to be a Muslim."
- This wouldn't be the only time Aslan had to remind the host
he was a religious scholar and an academic. As a professor of
religion, Aslan says, "that's what I do for a living, actually."

by Terry Watkins - December 15, 2009 - The taboo tattoo was until
recently, the menacing fashion of heavy-metal rockers, bikers,
criminals and the social outcast. But today the tattoo glamorously
appears everywhere and anywhere. Its the latest fashion
craze. The tattoo has found a canvas on celebrities such as Britney
Spears, Julia Roberts, Jessica Simpson, Bruce Willis, Geraldo

- The sports world has also received the "baptism of tattoos".
A 1997 AP Poll discovered over 35% of all NBA players sported
at least one tattoo, including such mega stars as Michael Jordon,
and Shaquille O' Neal. Sports reporters claim similar tattoo
percentages are decorating the professional football, baseball
and hockey world. Holding their own, the tattoo adorns the "conservative"
golf world on such notables as Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods.
- The National Geographic News stated that 15% of all Americans
are tattooed. The Alliance of Professional Tattooists (APT) estimates
over 39 million Americans have a tattoo. Details Magazine published

- RECRUITMENT TECHNIQUES OF CULTS ON THE WEB
- A Comparative Study of Persuasion and Recruitment Techniques
Exhibited by Organized Groups on the Internet
- "... Cult audiences do not often gather physically,
but consume cult doctrines entirely through magazines, television,
Internet, and through other forms of media. Thus, the membership
remains a consumer activity.
Client cults are organised among those offering the cult service,
but clients remain less organised and are often part of another
religious movement or institution. These less organised types
of cults are more common than the Cult movements that are religious
organisations who attempt to satisfy all the religious needs
of converts. The fact that a cult group is a client cult today
does not necessarily mean that it will remain so tomorrow. Scientology
began as a limited psychotherapy service, but as it was novel,
and because it was not based on verified scientific research,
Scientology was later described as a magic client cult rather
than a technical medical service. Later, Scientologys ideology
developed into a complex system movement. Thus, a highly developed
cult movement arose, and legal troubles grew as the cult started
to seek major commitment from their members (Wallis, 1976). Today,
one of Scientologys recruiting methods relies on gaining
members through the Internet.
A major distinction between NRMs involves a split classification
based on whether the NRM is a Bible-based organisation or a non-Christian
religion. This differentiation is reflected in the formation
of opinion of whether a NRM is a cult or not, but it also reflects
trends apparent in the modern society. The interest in religiousness
and spirituality has increased over the last 25 years. Over 400
new spiritual associations developed in the late period of the
1980s (Roof, 1993). Further, in a 1995 national survey
of 1713 Canadians, 52% acknowledged that they had a spiritual
need. Thus, it is apparent that there is a potentially
massive market to keep such groups financially buoyant and therefore
a need for such groups to advertise their services through a
variety of means. One obvious device to exploit in terms of advertising
obviously lies within the Internet. .." Whole article:

the French government to travel to the United States to study
the reason behind Americas greatness. After having spent
nine months in our land, he returned and delivered the following
report to the French Parliament:
- I went at your bidding and passed through their thorough-fares
of trade; I ascended their mountains and went down their valleys;
I visited their manufactories, their commercial markets and emporiums
of trade; I entered their judicial courts and legislative halls;
but I sought everywhere in vain until I entered the Church. It
was there as I listened to the soul-elevating principles of the
Gospel of Christ, as they fell from Sabbath to Sabbath upon the
masses of the people, that I learned why America was great and
free and why France was a slave.America is great because America
is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will
cease to be great.
- Tocqueville visited America during our nations Second
Great Awakening, when pulpits were aflame with the gospel of
repentance and salvation. Very significant were the thousands
of Masons who flocked to church altars to renounce their Masonic
oaths and receive Christ as Savior. Evangelist Charles Finney
specifically included repentance from Freemasonry in his preaching
and saw this action as a precursor to revival. America was experiencing
revival amidst the Anti-Masonic Movement. Continued pdf book

- THE PASSING OF JIM ROBERTSON
Editor:Sandy Keating - Author:Andy Poland - For those of you
who have not heard, after a long fight with Alzheimers
and dementia Jim Robertson passed away June 24th. Jim Robertson
was a light in the darkness for those coming out of Mormonism.
After leaving Mormonism to return to Biblical Christianity, Jim
devoted many hours and years of teaching, counseling, and educating
to help both Christians and Mormons to understand the differences
between the teachings of Mormonism and the teachings of the Bible.
Jim understood that faith in a false Christ would lead a person
into deception and ultimately destruction. Jesus taught Not
everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter the
kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father
who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, Lord,
Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive
out demons and in your name perform many miracles? Then
I will tell them plainly, I never knew you. Away from me,
you evildoers! Matthew 7:21-23.
- Jim helped me and my family to understand that the Jesus
of Mormonism had a very different agenda than the Jesus of the
Bible. Although I had spent all my life trying to be perfect
like Jesus to become a god of my own world, the truth in Bible
taught me that there was only one God and that there will only
be one God forever. I will never forget the first conversation
I had with Jim when I began my investigation into Biblical Christianity.
I was so leery of meeting an evil anti-Mormon like
Jim Robertson. I expected Jim to be filled with hate for Mormons
and to begin a very long lecture admonishing me of my sins of
believing in Mormonism. But the first questions Jim and Judy
asked were about my wife and my kids. They wanted to know if
I was being rejected by my family for leaving Mormonism. Then
they asked me if I had reasons to believe in Jesus and the Bible.
It was reassuring to know that Jim and Judy showed real interest
in my eternal well-being as well as compassion for my personal
struggles with my immediate family members.
- Right away Jim invited me to the former Mormon meeting on
Thursday nights. He told me that I would find other former Mormons
who had become Christians. That Thursday night changed everything
in my life. I learned about the true gospel of Jesus from the
Bible and accepted it. It is hard to describe the hope I gained
that night learning that my sins were forgiven. http://www.concernedchristians.com/
- MARK DICE IS ASKING LONG ISLANDERS TO SIGN A MANDATORY EUTHENASIA
FOR OLD PEOPLE PETITION
- [VIDEO] By Raillan Brooks Tue., Jul. 30 2013 at 10:45 AM
Remember back in 2010, when the new healthcare legislation was
equated by Republicans with The Giver-style life planning, complete
with executing newborns and murdering old people? After the apoplexy
faded and Sarah Palin crawled back into her stasis pod, the debate
entered a more reasonable register, but the bad taste of "death
panels" lingers to this day. And yet, Mark Dice can still
make us laugh when he petitions Long Islanders to support "mandatory
euthanasia" for old people to keep healthcare costs down.
- Dice, a man who makes his money peddling rightwing conspiracy
theories, roams the boardwalk collecting signatures for an obviously
fake legislative effort to execute people after a certain age.
- The politics here are a snore. It's the same old cartoonish
ideas about what the healthcare law actually means. But while
the Voice is generally opposed to the "state killings of
old people" position, we also think Dice's gag is pretty
- The best part? People sign the petition even after Dice explains
what it's for. The trick, Dice claims, is just saying that you're
"helping Obama," and boom! Make room on the bandwagon.
- Sigh. We make it too easy. http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2013/07/mandatory_euthanasia.php
- THE RAPTURE IS IMMINENT, MAYBE TODAY! THE ANTICHRIST
SPIRIT IS AT ITS HIGHEST EXPRESSION, A SPIRIT OF RELIGION.
- By Joseph Chambers - Paw Creek Ministry [...] It did not
begin that plain, but rather very deceptively. When the worlds
intelligentsia began to define, politically correct language,
it sounded good. We should be careful to say kind things because
the Bible teaches us that, Death and life are in the power
of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.(Proverbs
18:21) But very quickly it became a moral issue of protection
for immoral action. Now it has become the protection of all minority
religions and an excuse to eliminate Biblical values and expressions.
Politically correct language has now become the tool to destroy
Fundamental Christianity. Bible believing people
all over our world are becoming the ultimate enemy of society.
- This dark idea has taken possession of the church world.
Churches are no longer willing to post their name without using
non-theological terms. Namessuch as The Gathering
Place, Renovatus, or Elevation are the order of the day.
What are they saying with these terms? No absolutes, sin friendly,
come as you are, lets have religion together without the
Bible? It has almost become impossible to find someone that will
admit that they are unsaved or in need of the Lord Jesus in their
- The Antichrist could not have taken over the world fifty
years ago because the church world believed the Bible was the
King of all ideas or thoughts. Yes, there were many different
doctrines but there was so much truth in those doctrines that
some of the greatest revivals brought the entire church world
together. I used to love community church events because they
were wonderful. One of my best friends when I pastored in Black
Mountain, N.C. was an Episcopalian Pastor. Years ago in Charlotte,
my friend was the Pastor of St. John Baptist church beside the
Presbyterian Hospital. One book divided us because it was a beginning
source of moving the church away from truth, to a relative thought
life. He went after that path and I trusted the Scripture as
King. Full article:
