It is absolutely amazing when you take a look at what is happening in the world today, and I have to remind myself often that the Bible prophesied these things. The Jewish apostle Paul was speaking in the Spirit (Holy Spirit) when he wrote this:
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 (demons); (1 Timothy 4:1)
It was the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit) who inspired Paul to warn us about these things, so you can rest assured that it IS going to happen even as it is written. Not only is it going to happen but it has been happening for quite some time now!
The Madness And Deception Of The Vatican and the Pope
I have been writing frequently about Pope Francis and his call for “Christian” unity, and many have fallen for that deception, and you can expect many more to follow them. What you are seeing in our present day is the formation of a church which masquerades as the true “Christian” church but it is anything but that. Did you know that the previous Pope Pope Benedict XVI entrusted the “church” and the whole world to “Mary’s maternal intercession.” I am not kidding you. Read it for yourself:
VATICAN CITY, 1 JUN 2011 (VIS) – The traditional procession and Rosary marking the end of the Marian month took place in the Vatican Gardens yesterday at 8:00 in the evening. The procession wound from the Church of St. Stephen of the Abyssinians to the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes .. .
The Holy Father concluded by “entrusting the Church and the world to Mary’s maternal intercession”, asking for “the gift of always knowing how to embrace in our lives the lordship of the One who by his Resurrection conquered death”.
The Apostasy sirens are sounding once again! Are you still interested in bending your knee toward Rome? Do you still want to have “Christian” unity with a “church” that has been entrusted to Mary? Before the current Pope Francis invited the Muslim leader Mahmoud Abbas, and the Jewish leader Shimon Peres to pray for peace in the Middle East, he had already commended the “Holy Land” to the care of Mary! Folks I am a former Roman Catholic, and I used to pray my “Hail Mary” prayers on my rosary beads for years, but THEN I got saved! Glory to God! I was born again of the Spirit the biblical way (John 3:1-8) and the the rest is history. When Jesus Christ came IN, Mary went OUT!
The Pope before Benedict was Pope John Paul II and he entrusted all of Poland to Mary before he passed away! Are you spiritually strong enough to resist the seduction of Rome? I look at the seduction from Rome as a huge spiritual magnet, and it has been swallowing up people by the millions in recent times. My wife Cathy and I met a very nice Christian woman at a large church in Manhattan, and she told us that she had recently joined a prayer group, with a group of charismatic Roman Catholic ladies. As a former Catholic, who was part of the Catholic charismatic movement for a short season, I told her to be careful, because they would have her praying the rosary before she knew it. At that very moment, the woman told us that she felt sick, because they had already convinced her to pray the rosary along with them. If you are not familiar with the Roman Catholic rosary, it is a set of beads, with each bead representing a prayer, with most of them “Hail Mary” prayers to Mary. I prayed thousands of Hail Mary prayers in my life, and the rosary was often prayed during the Catholic Charismatic Healing Masses that I attended. After I was saved and born again of the Spirit, I stopped praying my “Hail Mary” prayers, and I prayed through the ONLY true mediator, who is Jesus Christ!
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Timothy 2:5)
The Bible shows me that Jesus Christ NEVER entrusted his true church to Mary. Jesus Christ is the only head of the church, and the scriptures tell me that Jesus is making intercession for me and all my brothers and sisters in Christ!
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:33-39)
If you search the scriptures you will not find anything that even remotely looks like the Vatican and the Catholic Church. You will not find Jesus, or his disciples ever mentioning praying to Mary or seeking her intercession. You will not find the disciples of Jesus ever mentioning the need for a Catholic Mass to satisfy the justice of God, for sins committed against him. No, they knew that the perfect sacrifice happened when Jesus Christ died on the cross. They were all about the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and they did not even need a big building or Cathedral to do that. They knew that the true Body of Christ was a spiritual family, just like the Lord said. (Matthew 12:48-50) They were born again of the Spirit, and the Spirit of truth testified to them about Jesus (not Mary) (John 15:26, 16:13) The idea of a Vatican with it’s own coin system, and it’s Swiss guards and buildings filled with idols would have been foreign to them. The idea of world leaders and politicians flocking to Rome to have “an audience” with the Pope would not be something that would have ever been associated with Biblical Christianity.
There are many articles on this blogsite about the falsehood of Rome including articles about the deception of the Catholic Mass, the more than 100 curses (anathemas) that the Church of Rome against Christians who disagree with their false teachings, the false teaching of Purgatory and more. The Roman Catholic church should wake up to the truth that there is a curse upon their false gospel, because the scriptures declare a curse upon all false gospels! (Galatians 1:8-9) It is downright scary that we are living in the day where ministers are being seduced by that false system. It was not too long ago (1986) when the the Roman Catholic Pope John Paul II gathered religious leaders from all over the world for his peace meeting at Assisi, Italy. There were people from Islam, Buddhism, “Christianity”, Judaism, Hinduism and even witchdoctors gathered to pray together to the “same God.” Pope John Paul II even smoked a peace pipe with the leaders at that meeting. I can only describe that as SPIRITUAL INSANITY! I have written in the past about the compromisers such as Billy Graham, Chuck Colson, Luis Palau, the TBN Network, and others and there is no question that they have influenced many millions in their own compromise with the very same issues. The Spirit of the living God delivered my wife Cathy and I out from that very deception of Mary worship, and both of us were regular prayers of the rosary UNTIL the Lord saved our souls.
The Madness And Deception Of The “Christian” Zionism Movement
Have you ever watched, or participated in the annual CUFI (Christians United For Israel) meetings that are held in Washington D.C. At these meetings you are going to see people waving the State Flag of Israel along that with the American Flag. You will hear from speakers who are Jewish, but who still reject the Messiah named Jesus who was sent to save them. Is that an unequal yoking according to the scriptures? Of course it is. The Bible warns us about these things, but few ever listen to those biblical warnings, but instead they follow the crowds, somehow thinking that the majority cannot be wrong.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18)
As far as I know, David Brog is a Jewish man who does not believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah, and he is the Executive Director of the CUFI organization. So here we have an UNSAVED Jewish man leading an organization that UNITES millions of “Christians” with the political State of Israel (mostly unbelievers). Isn’t that interesting? You cannot make this stuff up folks. There is a reason that the Bible puts forth scriptural warnings, BUT if you choose to ignore them, it is to your own peril. As far as I know, Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, also rejects Jesus as being the Christ (Messiah), and he has spoken via Satellite to those gathered at different CUFI events. My Bible tells me that those who do NOT believe that Jesus Christ came in the flesh (and he did) is of an ANTICHRIST spirit, and both Mr Brog and Mr Netanyahu clearly fit that description.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. (1 John 2:22)
Both David Brog and Mr Netanyahu deny that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah). Keep in mind that the word Christ means Messiah. They do not believe that Jesus is the Messiah, so therefore they DENY both the Father and the Son. The scriptures declare that those who DENY Jesus is the Messiah are liars! That also fits with the following scripture:
He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. (1 John 5:10)
Do you still believe the scriptures? Do you consider yourself to be a Bible believing Christian? The well meaning Christians have no idea what they are getting themselves into here, in working with that spirit of antichrist. There is a betrayal of Jesus Christ going on in slow motion. We must never forget that the Lord Jesus Christ emptied his veins for the human race, and the Gospel was presented to the Jew first, according to the Jewish apostle Paul!
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Gentile). (Romans 1:16)
And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is NOT OF GOD: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. (1 John 4:3)
Keep in mind that this does not only apply to David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu but to EVERY Jewish and Gentile person (billions) who do not believe that Jesus Christ came down from Heaven, and was manifest in the flesh. The scriptures tell us that they are NOT of God. So the point that I make here, is that all of the hoopla that you are going to see at the CUFI meetings is NOT of God. It is a joining together with many people (both Jewish and Gentile) who do NOT believe Jesus is who he said he was! This is the very type of seduction that the Jewish apostle Paul warned us about!
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; (1 Timothy 4:1)
Somehow things got mixed up along the way because Christians should be preaching the gospel to David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu, because they will die in their sins unless they turn to Jesus Christ for salvation. (John 8:24, 14:6, Acts 4:10-12) David Brog and Benjamin Netanyahu both need to repent and believe in Jesus Christ, because the wrath of God is upon them! (John 3:36) Somehow I cannot picture true Christians such as the apostle Paul who was beaten to a pulp for preaching the Gospel to the Jewish people, sitting there at these CUFI meetings. I cannot picture the faithful Christian martyr Stephen being too comfortable at those CUFI meetings either: Listen to these words from the book of Acts from this Christian man Stephen, before the religious Jewish people killed him:
Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One (Jesus); of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers: (Acts 7:51-52)
The true house and temple of God is a spiritual house with Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone, and with every TRUE BELIEVER being a LIVING STONE within that very same Temple. It is ALL about Jesus Christ NOT Israel. When Israel REPENTS and turns to Jesus Christ just like the Lord commands them to do, then and ONLY then, will it be alright for them. Every person in the world has an EQUAL opportunity to become part of that same spiritual house and Temple. It does not matter what color your skin is, or whether you are a man or a woman, you are INVITED by the Lord, to COME on IN! How? Repent and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Mark 1:15)
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? (Romans 10:11-14)
Did you read that ladies and gentlemen? The invitation is to both Jew and Gentile, and the Lord is RICH unto ALL that call upon HIM! There is endless supply of grace, mercy and salvation in the Lord’s supply house. The question is this: Do YOU truly want what the Lord has to offer to YOU? The MAJORITY of the people of the State of Israel (and the rest of the world) are NOT inside that spiritual temple yet! If you can picture a child building a house with those wooden “Lincoln Logs” you can get a picture of what the scriptures are telling us. The Lord is the very FOUNDATION and CORNERSTONE of the spiritual house and Temple of God, and the ONLY true Temple which is recognized by Almighty God. The Lord Jesus Christ is that corner “log” and every time a person gets saved through faith in Jesus Christ, they become another “log” added to the Lord’s spiritual house (temple). If a person has NEVER been born again of the Spirit of God, then they are NOT part of that spiritual house and temple. It is that simple. The Lord is concerned with SAVING souls, such as Mr Brog and Mr Netanyahu, because UNTIL they turn to Jesus Christ, the WRATH of God abides upon them! (John 3:36) According to the passage below Mr Brog and Mr Netanyah stumble at the Word of God, and are in DISOBEDIENCE to the Lord.
Ye also, as lively (living) stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion (Zion) a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: (1 Peter 2:5-9)
John Hagee: “Trying To Convert Jews Is A Waste of Time”
John Hagee who recently wrote a book telling us that the Jewish people did not reject the Messiah speaks often at the CUFI meetings. This is the same John Hagee who declared that it was a waste of time to try to convert a Jew! Here is an excerpt from the Christian Research Institute (DH005)
Trying to convert Jews is a “waste of time,” he [Hagee] said. . . .
Everyone else, whether Buddhist or Baha’i, needs to believe in Jesus, he says. But not Jews. Jews already have a covenant with God that has never been replaced with Christianity, he says.
“The Jewish people have a relationship to God through the law of God as given through Moses,” Hagee said. “I believe that every Gentile person can only come to God through the cross of Christ. I believe that every Jewish person who lives in the light of the Torah, which is the word of God, has a relationship with God and will come to redemption.
“The law of Moses is sufficient enough to bring a person into the knowledge of God until God gives him a greater revelation. And God has not,” said Hagee . . .
All a person has to do is study the scriptures, especially the Book of Acts and you will find the true disciples of Jesus Christ preaching the Gospel the same way to both Jew and Gentile. We are truly living in amazing times, and the anti-christ propaganda is moving at a rapid pace. I surely hope that the true Christians will begin to see what is happening before it is too late.
