Prophetic Intelligence Briefings

Would you like to know how President Obama views religion in society? Back in 2006 he gave a keynote address at the Call to Renewal’s Building a Covenant for a New America conference in Washington, D.C. Here are some excerpts.

“Today, I’d like to talk about the connection between religion and politics and perhaps offer some thoughts about how we can sort through some of the often bitter arguments that we’ve been seeing over the last several years…

“For some time now, there has been plenty of talk among pundits and pollsters that the political divide in this country has fallen sharply along religious lines. Indeed, the single biggest “gap” in party affiliation among white Americans today is not between men and women, or those who reside in so-called Red States and those who reside in Blue, but between those who attend church regularly and those who don’t…

“But over the long haul, I think we make a mistake when we fail to acknowledge the power of faith in people’s lives — in the lives of the American people — and I think it’s time that we join a serious debate about how to reconcile faith with our modern, pluralistic democracy.
And if we’re going to do that then we first need to understand that Americans are a religious people…

“But what I am suggesting is this – secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering into the public square…

“This brings me to my second point. Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values. It requires that their proposals be subject to argument, and amenable to reason. I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God’s will. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.”

Though Senator Obama’s speech acknowledged that religion plays a part in the public square, it is clear that he was suggesting that religions should seek to emphasize values that are not “religion-specific” but are universal; in other words, they should champion beliefs that are held by them in common with other religions and those of no faith at all. Of course, that is a practical impossibility. Political harmony can never rest on the common beliefs of all because then there would be no beliefs at all. This is really “political ecumenism;” a focus on the common good instead of on the distinctive doctrines that each religion my hold.

This is the same teaching of the Catholic Church concerning the ecumenical movement. Each faith should focus on beliefs that are held in common with all others. Where does this lead?

When the leading churches of the United States, uniting upon such points of doctrine as are held by them in common, shall influence the state to enforce their decrees and to sustain their institutions, then Protestant America will have formed an image of the Roman hierarchy, and the infliction of civil penalties upon dissenters will inevitably result. Great Controversy, page 445.

Satan is Readying the World for his Final Spiritual Deceptions!

Friends, we are living in perilous times! And I’m not talking about the Spiritual Formationwars and conflicts. I’m not talking about our morally degraded society. I’m not talking about the fact that this world is physically dying right before our eyes. I’m talking about the massive spiritual deceptions that are taking hold of professed people of faith all over the world.

The ‘spiritual formation’ deception is taking hold of churches throughout the world (link). And former Archbishop of Canterbury recently announced his prayer life is helped by Buddhism and Mysticism (link).

Evangelical and Charismatic churches are uniting with the Catholic Church in a push for world unity (link).

Catholics, Jews and Muslims are coming together and uniting ‘for the sake of peace’ (link), and the pope is gaining support from political leaders in America (link).

Both Muslims and Catholics venerate Mary and MILLIONS from both religions see apparitions of her (link and here).

But what does all this mean?

The Roman Catholic Church (Babylon) is at the forefront of these deceptions and we know we are to see ‘signs and wonders’ performed by Satan in the last days to draw the people in. So this recent push for unity between Pentecostals/Charismatics and the Catholic Church is a big step in the right direction for Satan to perform his ‘signs and wonders’ which will captivate the world, thinking that it is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. With the Vatican pointing to Mary at the center of it all. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. Revelation 17:13

Ecumenism: 30,000 Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Youth Unite in Strasbourg (December 2013)

“Some 30,000 young Christians from across Europe – Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox – descended on Strasbourg on Saturday for a four-day gathering to share prayers and reflect on social issues … Most of the visitors come from Poland, Ukraine, France, Germany and Italy … From the Vatican, Pope Francis sent his blessing, urging the youngsters to overcome divisions among Christians and build a European family.”

The ecumenical movement is one of the main deceptions that Satan is pushing among professed Christians today, and those who unite with this movement will be going against the direct Word of God.

We are NOT to unite with false churches or religions, not for ANY REASON. We are to remain separate (2 Corinthians 6:17). Because two cannot walk together if they are not agreed on the truth (Amos 3:3). But God does have people trapped within these false churches and religions (Babylon) not knowing the truth and He is calling them to COME OUT (Revelation 18:4).
