April 29, 2014
In this week’s news headlines, we saw
quite a few incidents of Christian persecution … more than the usual … and
this seems to be the trend all across the globe right now … but it seems to
be extremely disproportionate here in America, the once proud Christian nation.
Let me start by reminding you of what
Franklin Graham said … “Christians are being attacked by Hollywood and
some news media … Anti-Christian actions are occurring in America and much of
it is coming out of the entertainment industry and some segments of the news
outlets. .. Christians are being attacked and this is on the rise
globally.” …. So let’s take a quick review of what we do know in just
the past seven days here in America …….
*More firings in the public workplace for supporting Christian beliefs
*A second-grader’s Bible being taken away by her teacher and then told
it was not allowed in public schools …
*A Bible verse removed from a high school team’s website along with it
being removed from the gym …
*Easter ‘insults’ through the legalization of marijuana (pictures of
Jesus smoking a joint) …
*Humanist group suing a school district for allowing ‘under God’ in the
Pledge of Allegiance …
Now let me share this piece of
information given to me last week by a dear sister (her initials are ‘Gail’)
… It’s title is “7 Common Careers Christians may no longer hold in America”
…. .It starts out by saying, 
“Many Christian choose self-employed careers because they want to
be able to run their business according to the dictates of their faith and
conscience. … The list is quickly shrinking as homosexuals pro-actively seek
opportunities to wreck the personal business and career of any Christian who
declines to support the gay lifestyle. .. Don’t be fooled. .. This is a focused
effort to ostracize and humiliate faith-based businesses and their owners. ..
Here are a few recent examples:
*Photography – A Christian photographer
in New Mexico was fined $6700 for politely declining to photograph a lesbian
commitment ceremony. .. The Supreme Court allowed this fine to stand.
*Baker – A Christian baker in Oregon is
facing both civil and criminal penalties, including jail time, for politely
declining to bake a cake for a gay wedding ceremony. .. Her business has
*Florist – Baronelle Stutzman, a
Christian florist in Washington, is being sued by the state attorney general for
politely declining to prepare an arrangement for a gay wedding ceremony.
*Broadcasting – Craig James was fired
by  Fox Sports Southwest after only one
day on the job for expressing his support for natural marriage while he was a
candidate for the United States Senate.
*Counseling – “Jennifer Keeton was
dismissed from the counseling program at Augusta State University for her
religious reservations about the homosexual lifestyle.
*Innkeeping – :The Wildflower Inn in
Vermont was fined $30,000 and forced to shut down its wedding reception
business after politely declining to host a lesbian ceremony.
*Teaching – “Ms. Gillian
John-Charles was kicked out of a doctoral program in education at Roosevelt
University for expressing in class her belief that homosexuals aren’t born
Now while this last article is focused on
the homosexual onslaught against us, there are many more ‘aggressors’ involved
as well. … Look at our own government for example …. The Department of
Homeland Security is lining itself up against Christians .. the Military is no
longer allowing Christians to openly practice their faith .. our own leaders,
including President Obama, all seem to be openly anti-Christian. .. In fact,
one recently released list of ‘terrorist’ groups included fundamental
Christians along with Al Qaeda, Hamas, and the KKK! …. One commentator said
that ‘it is becoming apparent that Christians will soon become the most hunted
people on the face of the earth. .. The coming persecution will make the Roman
persecution seem like child’s play.’
Ok, any of us with a brain can see what
is coming. .. It is becoming more apparent with each passing day. … So why is
this the case? … Let’s start with a statement from Jesus Himself …
“They hated me without reason.” (John 15:25) … Certainly there were
thousands of reasons for people to love Jesus, and really not one reason to
hate him. .. The Gospels portray him as kind, patient, long-suffering and full
of tenderness, forgiving and willing that NO person should perish. .. So what
did he do that he should be so despised, both in His own day and today? ..
Simply, the world hated Him because he
came as a light to deliver them from darkness. .. Jesus declared Himself to be
the light of the world:  “I am the
light of the world:  he that follow me
shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12)
… But then Jesus said,  “Every one
who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that
his deeds will be exposed.” (John 3:20) … The bottom line? .. Simply,
people love the things of this world! .. The ungodly relish the pleasures of
sin. .. Jesus said they would prefer the darkness to the light. … “This
is the verdict:  light has come into the
world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were
evil.”  (John 3:19) …
Many voices in the Church today say that
we Christians MUST accept and show a new kind of love. .. But what they are
really saying is that we need to ‘bend’ the Bible’s teachings so as to fit the
times. …  Certainly by doing this we
would avoid this persecution …but also in so doing … when promoting this
‘Bible-bending’ theology .. then no personal changes would be necessary when
one accepts Christ .. indeed, no repentance is needed! … This is an absolute
lie! … Why do we NOT see the world becoming a better place? … Because
without a spiritual change, one will remain in the realm of darkness …
without repentance and rejection of these things of darkness, there will be no
light …
Tell me, are you tired of the shame of
the Cross? … Are you fed up with being mocked, dismissed, seen as the rigid,
hateful, intolerant, non-bending zealot? 
.. Are you weary of being rejected and ridiculed? … Well, you can easily
find acceptance. .. You can have the world call you friend, associate with you,
admire you, even love the kind of Gospel you preach. … How? .. It happens
when you allow the ways of the world to seep into your souls. .. You cast off
the reproach of Christ, convincing yourself you can mix with darkness and still
be a light to the world. …….. but It doesn’t work that way! .. If you
succumb to such friendship with the world, your light will become darkness. ..
Jesus described it this way .. “But if your eyes are bad, your whole body
will be full of darkness.  If then the
light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness.”  (Matthew 6:23) … Such is the condition of
your soul when the world has taken hold. …..
Will persecution keep increasing? … You
can count on it! … But then I also believe this …  People everywhere are hurting! ..  There is a ‘sin-sickness’ in this world, with
multitudes facing empty days and fearful nights … They can find nothing to
put their trust in  .. nowhere they can
turn for help .. no one who can give them hope. ….  But ….
“You are the light of the
world.” .. Jesus said this simple statement in Matthew 5:14. … Now if
this light is shining bright enough, and people can see that you are loving and
kind, with a full confidence in the truth of your faith, they will come seeking
you. … There will be many folks out there who, once they realize that their
leaders are clueless as to the truth, will come seeking the truth they so
desperately need! ….. And how will they find you? … By being a living and
breathing example! ..  “By this
shall all men know that you are my disciples.”  (John 13:35) …
OK, I’ll close now … but remember this
scripture .. in fact memorize it, so that when you come under attack through
the increasing persecution, it will give you strength just to know that you are
following your Savior’s teachings …. “If the world hates you, keep in
mind that it hated me first.  If you
belonged to the world, it would love you as its own.  As it is, you do not belong to the world, but
I have chosen you out of the world.  That
is why the world hates you.”  (John
15:18-19) …
Stay strong and let’s remember to pray
for each other constantly. … Our redemption is near! … We will hear the
trumpet at any moment! … Hallelujah! ..
Until next time,

Comment from article:  “While one could argue that Gaga playing

Lucifer, Venus and Ishtar.”

… and how tragic is this? … Vines is coming right out of the new ‘Emergent

and some of News Media’ “

Comment from article:  ” ‘Anti-Christian actions are occurring

segments of the news media,’ said Reverend Franklin Graham, who added that ‘Christians
are being attacked and this is on the rise globally, along with increasing
anti-Semitism.’ “

…. Their leadership is calling for
China to become a major Military-Industrial power. ….. Isn’t it fascinating
to watch the Kings of the North & East rise up while America, not mentioned
specifically in Bible prophecy, is declining? …


Another week goes by … and the
“birth pains” continue to mount. … One thing is the Middle East
peace talks breaking down. .. Of course, that shouldn’t surprise those of us
who follow Bible Prophecy. .. Israel will continue to see increasing isolation
and national hatred until the time of the peace treaty that will be
orchestrated by the soon-coming world leader . … Another thing that is
becoming more apparent by the moment is the rapid rise of the Kings of the East
& North. .. Both China & Russia are ‘flexing’ their collective muscles
through increased military spending & political posturing … and the U.S.?
… We are moving quickly in the other direction .. but then, that is what I
expected would happen to the world’s only remaining superpower. … We are not
specifically mentioned in Bible prophecy, so therefore we must soon ‘exit’ the
power position on the world stage. …

There’s much more, but the one issue that
really stands out this week is how we Christians are becoming the world’s
‘Public Enemy #1 …. the ‘Enemy of the State’ …. The comments by Reverend
Franklin Graham sum it up quite adequately. … “Christians are being
attacked and this is on the rise globally, along with increasing incidents of
anti-Semitism.” … Is he right or what?! .. In the last seven days we saw
more firings in the public workplace for those refusing to submit to sinful
practices … Easter ‘insults’ through the public onslaught of legalized drug
use …  A teacher taking away a
second-grader’s Bible, telling her it is not allowed in public schools .. A
Bible verse being taken away from a high school sports team because it is from
the Bible .. and of course the continuing battle of the militant homosexual
movement to literally change the meaning, or re-write Bible scriptures so as to
justify their perverse lifestyles, and making those who stand against them the
‘hateful, intolerant enemy’ ….. It’ll be interesting to see just how long our
God will put up with America, and the rest of the world before His wrath is
poured out …. Bible history shows that it WILL COME! …..

OK … I’m done for another week ….
Remember that I love you all and am praying for you constantly. … hang in
there, and NEVER give in to these evildoers that are promoting these lies of
the devil … and if you feel like you are under attack, go to Ephesians
6:10-18 where we are told to “put on the armor of God”  in difficult times. … Rest assured, we will
be victorious in the end! ….. Hallelujah!

Until next time,


April 22, 2014

Revelation 17:1-2 says this … “One
of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, ‘I will show
you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters.  2) With her the kings of the earth committed
adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her
adulteries.’ “
Two quick points before we move to the
crux of this writing …. first, the Great Prostitute represents the world
church which will exist in the last days and will be the ‘partner’ of the
anti-christ. … and second, the ‘many waters’ referred to stands for the
masses of humanity which currently inhabit the earth.
Now, let’s get to it! … Anybody
watching this new Pope closely? .. Well, I am! … This guy is taking the world
‘by storm’ it would seem. … People by the millions are flocking to him with
great adoration and submission! …. So here’s my question? .. Is Pope Francis
taking steps that are laying the groundwork for the emergence of the world
church .. a one-world religion? .. Is he to be the leader of the ‘Great
Prostitute’ prophesied in Revelation 17? …. Many signs seem to be pointing in
that direction. …
Certainly worldly ‘conditions’ would seem
to enhance this possibility. .. We are living at a time when globalization is
advancing rapidly. .. The global economy is more integrated than it has ever
been before, and with each passing day new economic treaties tie us even more
closely together.  … And ‘global
governance’ (as the elite like to call it) is also steadily gaining ground. ..
Through a whole host of global institutions such as the UN, the World Bank, the
IMF, and the Bank of International Settlements, global governments are working
together at a level that is unprecedented. …
So, what about religion? .. Is there any
evidence that we are currently witnessing that it is ‘globalizing’ as well? …
The answer to that is a resounding YES! … And this new Pope is clearly
leading the way! ….
Since he has become Pope, Francis has
expressed a desire for unity with Eastern Orthodox, the Anglicans, and many
other major protestant denominations. … Get this! .. He recently sent a video
message to Kenneth Copeland and his congregation. … At the time it was
presented, one speaker declared aloud, 
‘Luther’s protest is over’ …. Here’s a comment from this event
” ‘The Catholic and Charismatic
renewal is the hope of the Church,’ exclaims Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer,
before a group of cheering followers at the Kenneth Copeland Ministries. ..
Palmer said those words are from the Vatican. .. Before playing the video
message from Pope Francis to Kenneth Copeland, Palmer told the crowd, ‘When my
wife saw that she could be Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and
Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic Church, she said
she would like to reconnect her roots with the Catholic culture. .. So she
did.’ ..
The crowd cheered, as he continued ,  ‘Brothers and sisters, Luther’s protest is
over.  Is yours?’ ..
Even Kenneth Copeland finds this
development incredible:  said Copeland,
‘Heaven is thrilled over this. .. You know what is so thrilling to me? .. When
we went into the ministry 47 years ago, this was impossible.’ ” 
So, is Luther’s protest really over? ..
Let’s look for a moment …. During the Council of Trent (1545-1563), the
Catholics condemned to hell anyone that believes in salvation through faith in
Jesus Christ alone. … The following is a direct quote from the Council of
Trent …
“If any one saith, that by faith
alone the impious is justified;  in such
wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the
obtaining the grace of justification, and that it is not in any way necessary,
that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will;  let him be anathema.”  … (anathema meaning accursed, damned, and
devoted to evil) ….
In short, no one can get to heaven
without Jesus –  AND THE CHURCH! .. And,
the Catholics have never renounced that stand. .. Instead, it has been
reaffirmed many times over the years. … If Pope Francis really wanted to
reach out to Protestants, he should start by reversing the Council of Trent on
this. .. As it stands, it is official Catholic doctrine that all Protestants
are anathema. … But what’s nuts? .. It apparently hasn’t stopped many
Protestants from reuniting with Rome and declaring Francis to be ‘their Pope.’
Adding to this, Pope Francis has also
been aggressively courting Muslims. .. The following quote from Francis comes
from remarks he made during his very first ecumenical meeting …. “I then
greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious
traditions;  first of all the Muslims,
who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and
all of you.  I really appreciate your
presence:  In it I see a tangible sign of
the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of
humanity. …. The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting
friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions
– it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious
dialogue performs.” ……… Now did you catch that? … Apparently Pope
Francis believes the Catholics and Muslims worship the same God!
More recently, Francis made the following
statement about Muslims …..  “We
must never forget that they ‘profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together
with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last
Now by making these kinds of statements,
Pope Francis is rejecting another of the most fundamental doctrines of the
Christian faith … and that is, we Christians believe that Jesus is God.
….. Muslims hate this doctrine and say
that there is no god but Allah. … So how in the world can Christians and
Muslims worship the same God? .. The only way one could say this is to deny the
deity of Jesus Christ!
When it comes to other religions, Francis
is not just reaching out to the Muslims. .. During the same ecumenical meeting
I previously referred to, he made it a point to say that he feels ‘close’ to
those that belong ‘to any religious tradition.’ … and I quote,  “In this, we feel close even to all
those men and women who, whilst not recognizing themselves belonging to any
religious tradition, feel themselves nevertheless to be in search of truth,
goodness and beauty, this truth, goodness and beauty of God, and who are our
precious allies in efforts to defend the dignity of man, in building a peaceful
coexistence among peoples and in guarding Creation carefully.”   …..
Then he really raised some eyebrows when
he made the following statement about atheists … “The Lord created us in
His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and
all of us have this commandment at heart: 
do good and do not do evil. .. All of us. .. ‘But Father, this is not Catholic!  He cannot do good.’ .. Yes he can .. The Lord
has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ:  all of us, not just Catholics.  Everyone! 
‘Father, the atheists?’ .. Even the atheists.  Everyone! .. We must meet one another doing
good.  ‘But I don’t believe, Father, I am
an atheist!’ .. But do good:  we will
meet one another there.”
Needless to say, there was a ton of
debate about what Francis meant by that, and the Vatican issued a statement
declaring that Catholic doctrine on these matters has not changed, but without
a doubt a lot of people were troubled by this. … And there were a lot more
troubled when the Vatican offered ‘indulgences’ to those that would follow Pope
Francis on twitter. … Here’s an excerpt from an article that appeared in the
Telegraph  … “Salvation – or at
least a shorter stay in Purgatory – might now be only a tweet away with news
that Pope Francis is to offer ‘indulgences’ – remissions for temporary
punishment – to the faithful who follow him on the social media site.”
So what does this guy – Pope Francis –
really believe? … That is a very good question. … Certainly his beliefs do
not appear to be very consistent at all. .. He just seems to want to say what
everyone wants to hear – an overwhelming desire to ‘unite’ with everyone out
there, regardless of the religious connections. …. But when we look a bit
deeper, we do find one group of people he doesn’t like … and that is
‘ideological Christians – those of us who take our faith very seriously … and
trust that the Bible is literal in ALL its teachings!  …. Allow me to share just one more quote
from the Pope … “In ideologies there is not Jesus:  In His tenderness, His love, His meekness. ..
And ideologies are rigid, always. .. Of every sign: rigid. .. And when a
Christian becomes a disciple of the ideology, he has lost his faith:  he is no longer a disciple of Jesus, he is a
disciple of this attitude of thought .. For this reason Jesus said to them,
‘You have taken away the key of knowledge.’ .. The knowledge of Jesus is
transformed into an ideological and also a moralistic knowledge, because these
close the door with many requirements. .. The faith becomes ideology and
ideology frightens, ideology chases away the people. .. But it is a serious illness,
this of ideological Christians. .. It is an illness, but it is not new,
Wow! … In all my days of following any
religious leader’s thinking, I don’t believe I’ve encountered one like this …
one of complete compromise and deception so as to woo any and all comers ….
So what is going to come of all this? …
It will be very interesting to watch! … It is also interesting to note that
there is a 900-year-old prophecy (St. Malachy – 12th century) that seems to
indicate that Pope Francis could be the last Pope. .. If that prophecy is
accurate, then we could very well be living at a time when we will see the
emergence of the coming one-world religion. …
Short of setting a date, the emergence of
the one-world religion fits perfectly into most all of the other prophetic
signs of our day … and with this current Pope’s compromising of the faith
coupled with his apparent charisma, he well could be the perfect candidate to
lead the ‘Great Prostitute’ that is about to appear in this world …..
