Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron… 1 Timothy 4:1-3

“With Bible prophecies of the end times appearing to come to pass before our very eyes, there’s a big one many wonder about. Is the Antichrist alive? Who is he? What is he doing? … Here’s what Graham had to say … The Bible refers to the Antichrist as an evil person of great spiritual power who will appear at the end of the present age … As the name ‘Antichrist’ implies, he will be completely and utterly opposed to Christ and His people … Is the Antichrist alive today? On one hand, the Bible urges us not to speculate about this or become overly anxious about it … The most important fact about the Antichrist, however, is that he will not win.”

This is pretty much what you get from Protestants now regarding the antichrist. Billy Graham not only is unable or unwilling to pinpoint the antichrist, he makes the same mistake that the majority of Protestants and Evangelicals make today. And that is to take the Jesuit line of thinking regarding antichrist. Proposing that the antichrist is one person who would arise in the very last days. And yet the Bible makes it real clear that the antichrist is not one person who will arise in the last days, but a RELIGIOUS SYSTEM which tries to TAKE THE PLACE OF CHRIST, that has been with us for a long time!

This antichrist system is known as the ‘little horn power’ of Daniel 7, the ‘man of sin’ of 2 Thessalonians 2, the ‘sea beast’ of Revelation 13, and ‘Babylon the Great’ of Revelation 17. And these ALL point unmistakenly to the Papal Church of Rome, with that ‘man of sin’, the pope as it’s leader! You see, the word ‘antichrist’ does NOT just mean ‘against’ Christ, as the English word suggests. If you look at the original Greek word, you will see it also means to ‘TAKE THE PLACE’ of Christ. And what religious system on earth has tried to do just that? Roman Catholicism. Just look at what the ‘fathers’ of Protestantism believed:

MARTIN LUTHER – ” For who is the man of sin and the son of perdition, but he who by his teaching and his ordinances increases the sin and perdition of souls in the church; while he yet sits in the church as if he were God? All these conditions have now for many ages been fulfilled by the papal tyranny.” (Martin Luther, First Principles, pp. 196-197)

JOHN CALVIN – “Some persons think us too severe and censorious when we call the Roman Pontiff Antichrist. .. I shall briefly show that (Paul’s words in II Thess. 2) are not capable of any other interpretation than that which applies them to the Papacy.” (Institutes of the Christian Religion, Vol.3, p.149)

JOHN KNOX – “as for your Roman kirk, as it is now corrupted, and the authority thereof, whereon stands the hope of your victory, I no more doubt but that it is the synagogue of Satan, and the head thereof, called the pope, to be that man of sin, of whom the apostle speaks.” (John Knox, The History of the Reformation of Religion in Scotland, p.65)

JOHN WESLEY – “In many respects, the Pope has an indisputable claim to those titles. He is, in an emphatical sense, the man of sin, as he increases all manner of sin above measure.” (John Wesley, Explanatory Notes Upon The New Testament, p.216)

CHARLES SPURGEON – “It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name … Popery is contrary to Christ’s Gospel, and is the Antichrist, and we ought to pray against it.” (Michael de Semlyen, All Roads Lead to Rome)

ELLEN WHITE – “This compromise between paganism and Christianity resulted in the development of the man of sin foretold in prophecy as opposing and exalting himself above God. That gigantic system of false religion is a masterpiece of Satan’s power – a monument of his efforts to seat himself upon the throne to rule the earth according to his will. To secure worldly gains and honors, the church was led to seek the favor and support of the great men of earth; and having thus rejected Christ, she was induced to yield allegiance to the representative of Satan – the bishop of Rome … Prophecy had declared that the papacy was to ‘think to change times and laws. (Daniel 7:25)” (E.G.White, The Great Controversy, pp.49-51)

Many other great men and women, including William Tyndale, John Wycliffe, Philipp Melanchthon, Huldreich Zwingli and the Translators of the King James Bible all proclaimed the antichrist to be the Papal Church of Rome, with the pope as that ‘man of sin’. Sadly, Protestants today have joined hands with that whore of Babylon and have accepted false Jesuit teachings concerning the antichtist to divert people from the truth!

The mark of the beast

  • Revelation 14:9-11, 14. In the closing era of earth’s history just before Christ appears on the cloud at the last day to reward every man, God will send a special message warning every person not to receive the mark of the beast. The terrible punishment of which God warns should make us purpose never to receive the mark of this beast, even if our faithfulness to God should cost us our lives.
  • Revelation 13:18. This beast power, whose mark we are warned to avoid, is the Catholic power. The pope’s leading title, VICARIUS FILII DEI, when counted according to the Roman numerical value of the letters, equals exactly 666. Since the beast is symbolic of the Catholic power, the mark of the beast must be some intuition of Catholicism, which will distinguish those who adopt it as obeying her authority in preference to obeying God on that point.
  • Romans 6:16. Whatever power we obey in religion, his servants we are. Two questions will show plainly what is involved in this matter of the mark of the beast:

1. When a person keeps the seventh day, Saturday, as the Sabbath, whom does he obey? There can be only one answer: that person is obeying God, for that is what God has commanded in the fourth Commandment of the ten. Exodus 20:8-11.

2. When a person keeps the first day of the week, Sunday, as a so called sabbath, whom is he obeying? He is not obeying God by keeping the first day, because God has never told anybody to keep the first day of each week. Whom then is he obeying? He is obeying the command of the Catholic power, which has attempted to substitute the first day as a holy day in place of the seventh day, which the Lord Christ sanctified or set apart for man in the beginning of time. Genesis 2:1-3. Thus it is made plain in the light of God’s message that, when we choose to keep the seventh day, we are marked as worshipers of the Creator, the only true God (Ezekiel 20:12); while if we choose the Catholic Sunday in the place of God’s seventh day Sabbath we are marked as followers of the beast power.

  • Matthew 15:9 When we substitute a human ordinance in place of what God has ordained, our worship of Him is vain.
  • Revelation 13:16, 17. An attempt will be made to enforce the mark of the beast on all people. So each one will have to decide whether he will obey God and keep the seventh day, or obey the beast power and keep the first day, which this power has sought to put in the place of God’s day.
  • Revelation 13:8. All the world will obey the beast power, except a few, who will be loyal to God, as the three Hebrews were in the vast throng of Babylon. The book of Revelation shows that in the testing time every person will have to choose whether he will receive the seal of God on his forehead, or whether he will receive the mark of the beast on the forehead on in the hand, for Christ or antichrist, will seal our eternal destiny. God holds out the Sabbath as the sign of His power. Exodus 31:16, 17. The beast power holds out Sunday as the sign of its power. Which one do you choose?
  • Acts 5:29. We should decide now to obey God rather than man.
  • Revelation 14:12. The only way we can avoid the mark of the beast is to keep the Commandments of God and faith of Jesus. If you have made that decision, then stick to it. If you have not so decided, then put yourself on God’s side this moment by deciding to obey Him and keep His day.

In the Convert’s Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, we read:

Q. Which is the Sabbath day?
A. Saturday is the Sabbath day.
Q. Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday?
A. We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea, (AD 336) transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday….
Q. Why did the Catholic Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday, because Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday, and the Holy Ghost descended upon the Apostles on a Sunday.
Q. By what authority did the Church substitute Sunday for Saturday?
A. The Church substituted Sunday for Saturday by the plenitude of that divine power which Jesus Christ bestowed upon her!
—Rev. Peter Geiermann, C.SS.R., (1946), p. 50.

Tuesday October 25th, 2016 in Briefings, Prophetic Intelligence Briefings

The Alfred E. Smith Memorial Fund Dinner is a white tie fundraiser for Roman Catholic Charities. It is held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel and hosted by the Alfred E. Smith family and the Roman Catholic Cardinal of New York. This year’s list of invitees to the 71st annual dinner included Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The only thing between the two presidential rivals was Cardinal Dolan with whom they shared the meal and the dais. Normally, the dinner speeches are something of a roast with the speakers light-heartedly ridiculing themselves and teasing each other.

But Donald Trump skewered Hillary Clinton with harsh criticism and was booed by the audience. Though the media skewered Trump in return, the Catholic Church took advantage of the opportunity to hobnob with the very wealthy attendees. The Al Smith Dinner dates back to 1945, honoring the legacy of the nation’s first Roman Catholic presidential candidate.

The toxic remarks created a lot of tension at the dinner, but Cardinal Dolan eased the tension and reminded those wealthy Wall Street executives and other influential people why they had gathered together – to support the Catholic Charities, particularly the children they help.

And though the latest release of hacked emails from the Clinton campaign has led to allegations of a deep-seated anti-Catholic bias in the Democratic Party, Cardinal Dolan was able to raise a record-breaking six million dollars for needy children. Trump’s questionable stance on abortion has Catholic voters in a knot as well.

“If there’s one thing that both this election cycle has revealed, it’s that something is seriously wrong with the way we do politics…” wrote Crux. “Yet despite the grim circumstances, the refreshing reminder from last night was that even in the midst of such contentiousness, the Catholic Church still has the ability to bring people together and offer hope and a better way of engaging the world around us.”

Dolan used the acrimony between the candidates to suggest that it won’t necessarily be a political campaign that will be there to meet the needs of the poor—it will be the Church.

“And all the world wondered…” Revelation 13:3

1. Won’t the second coming of Christ be a secret rapture?

Answer: The secret rapture theory is relatively new to Christianity. However many sincere Christians today believe this popular (but non-Biblical) concept of the second-coming. The eight points of the secret rapture theory are as follows (Keep in mind that this is a theory, not based on Bible facts):

1. The rapture is silent.

2. The rapture is invisible.

3. The rapture leaves the wicked alive.

4. God removes the righteous to protect them from the tribulation.

5. Christ’s second coming will be in two stages: (1) the secret rapture, and (2) the actual coming, which will be glorious.

6. These two stages of the second coming will be seven years apart.

7. The rapture will take place before the revelation of the Antichrist, who then will bring about the tribulation.

8.The wicked will at this point have a second chance to be converted and to serve Christ.

These eight premises have been so widely embraced that most people accept them as fact without pausing to investigate. But our only safety is to search the Scriptures daily to determine whether those things are so (Acts 17:11). Prepare for some surprises.

1.The rapture is not silent, but rather, is extremely noisy (1 Thessalonians 4:16; Psalms 50:3; Jeremiah 25:30, 31).

2.The rapture is not invisible, but will be seen by all (Revelation 1:7; Matthew 24:27).

3.The rapture does not leave the wicked alive. They are slain by the brightness of the Lord’s coming (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

4.God does not remove the righteous from the tribulation, but rather protects them from it (Psalm 91:5-12; Rev. 3:10).

5.Christ’ second coming will not be in two stages–one secret and the other seen by all. There is only one second coming, and it will be seen by every living person on earth. There is no Scripture to support a two-phase second coming.

6.The secret rapture teachers claim there is a seven-year period between the two second comings of Christ. This claim is unscriptural.

7. Antichrist does not appear three and one-half years after the second-coming of Jesus. He has been active for centuries (1 John 4:3) and is even now at work!

8. The wicked will not have a second opportunity to be saved after the second coming. All sinners are destroyed at the second coming. There is no second opportunity for anyone to be saved after Christ’s return. (Revelation 22:11,12; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9).

The secret rapture theory has been based on a system of theology known as dispensationalism, taught in many of the Bible schools that prepare ministers for the pulpits of the world. The order of events taught by this system is:

(1)The rapture (resurrection of the righteous, saints being caught up to heaven).

(2) The great tribulation

(3)The second coming of Christ (really the third) in power in glory.

(4)The 1,000 reign of Christ

This order of events is contrary to the order given in the Scriptures. Here are the records of the Biblical order of events:

Matthew 24

(1) The tribulation (verse 29)

(2) The darkening of the sun and moon, falling of stars. (verse 29).

(3) Glorious coming of Christ in power and majesty (verse 30)

(4) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 31)

Mark 13

(1) Tribulation. (verse 24)

(2) Darkening of sun and moon, falling of stars. (verses 24, 25)

(3) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 26)

(4) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 27)

Luke 21

(1) Tribulation events. (verses 25, 26)

(2) Signs in sun, moon, and stars. (verse 25)

(3) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 27)

1 Thessalonians 4

(1) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 16)

(2) Resurrection of righteous. (verse 16)

(3) Saints caught up to heaven. (verse 17)

Revelation 6

(1) Earthquake, darkening of sun, moon turned to blood, falling of stars. (verse 12, 13)

(2) Second coming of Jesus in power and glory. (verses 14-17)

Joel 2

(1) Darkening of sun and moon. (verse 31)

(2) Second coming in power and glory. (verse 32)

Isn’t it amazing that there is not one Bible reference that gives the dispensationalist order of events?

2. Since the Lord is coming “as a thief in the night,” how can anyone know anything about it?

Answer: The answer is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” Notice, the day of the Lord comes as a thief TO THE UNPREPARED, but not to those who are called “brethren.”

The ‘Rapture’—Rooted in Rome!

The foundation of the ‘rapture’ theory was laid over 400 years ago, upon the specific orders of the Catholic Church. Every Christian needs to understand how this fabrication of error was designed to neutralize the great Protestant Reformation. If the facts of history were known by Protestants today who defend with such great emotion the rapture theory and the futurist antichrist doctrine, they would be horrified.

Luther and his fellow reformers boldly identified the pope as the “man of sin,” and labeled the Catholic Church as the antichrist of prophecy. In response to those charges the Roman hierarchy assigned two Jesuit priests to develop counter-interpretations which would turn the focus away from the Catholic Church. These two Spanish priests flooded the 16th century with their counter-Reformation propaganda. Alcazar of Seville applied all the ‘beast’ prophecies to Antiochus Epiphanes, who lived long before the popes began to rule in Rome. His system of interpretation came to be known as the Preterist School of prophecy.

On the other hand, Jesuit Francisco Ribera invented a system know as the Futurist School of interpretation. He taught that the antichrist was to be some future superman who would appear near the end of time and continue in power for 3 ½ years. It is his clever, unscriptural theory, which has been resurrected by modern evangelical Protestants Christians. And today, millions of Baptists, Methodists, Pentecostals, etc., hold this anti-Protestant concoction of the Jesuits as some kind of infallible doctrine. Yet these same denominations claim to be faithful supporters of Protestant theology. Luther and other stalwart protesters against Catholic errors would be astonished if they were suddenly resurrected, to hear what is being taught in the name of Protestantism.

In the early 1800s, the futurist view of Jesuit Ribera passed through certain refinements and additions, including the seven-year tribulation and the snatching away of the saints. For the first time it was espoused by Protestant teachers who were seeking ways of reconciliation with Rome. Through the influence and writings of John Nelson Darby of the Plymouth Brethren Church in England, the new doctrine spread to the United States. During the middle and latter part of the nineteenth century, it received its biggest boost from Cyrus Schofield, who incorporated it into the notes of his Schofield Reference Bible, published in 1909.

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.

This is becoming more and more common. Many that are proclaiming Christ nowadays are denying him in public for the sake of fame and notoriety from the world. How can a person claim to be a follower of Christ but promote gender confusion and defend those that promote agendas against the bible? Steph Curry has a lot to learn and I pray that one day a pastor would be bold enough to truly share truth with him and show him how you cannot claim Christ and love the world at the same time. We cannot have it our way. Either we will follow Christ or we will follow the enemy. There is no in between. This bathroom equality agenda will corrupt his very daughter in the future and cause confusion in the lives of many that follow him. The fact that he is promoting this and standing up for the LGBT is sad. But the day of the carnal believer is here and many are falling away from the truth.

This one is simple. All Steph had to say was ” I believe in the equal treatment of all people, however, I define people as male and female. Therefore, I cannot side with the LGBT on this bathroom issue. Our bodies define our identity. I believe the bible and it clearly states that God made us male and female.” But instead, Steph Curry sided with the LGBT by saying the law should be changed to protect the financial interests of the organizations he is apart of?

2Tim. 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 

2Tim. 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

bf9fcc89-5104-4eb2-82cf-8645fc548a57-large16x9_1280x960_60615p00fmlsh1The Huffington Post Reports: Stephen Curry is now a different kind of MVP ― most valuable protester.

The NBA superstar urged lawmakers from his home state of North Carolina to rethink the so-called “bathroom bill” that discriminates against the LGBT community.

The state has paid dearly for the HB2 legislation, losing the NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, first- and second-round games of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and other NCAA championship events.

The Atlantic Coast Conference also announced it was relocating its football championship from Charlotte, where Curry grew up.

I think it’s unfortunate for our city and our state to be under the microscope with HB2 and how it’s unfolded,” Curry said in an interview with The Associated Press, published Thursday. “I’m all for equal and fair rights and treatment for everybody. Until it gets addressed, until some changes are made, this could be a recurring theme in North Carolina. I don’t want that to happen.” Read More
