Don't Let A Christian Make You An Unbeliever

(Note: I discovered this article among my grandparents' old papers. I wrote and published this article in July, 1995. The counsel of this article is even more valuable today than then.)

Don't Let A Christian
Make You An Unbeliever
by Ken Raggio

Even if there was not one true Christian left in the world, GOD is still real! As long as there have been people, there have been failures. But the failures of men have never killed God. Nor will they ever!

The most basic component of success with God is FAITH. Even if you don't have faith in anybody else, you can have faith in God. People may be phony, but God is not.

When you and I stand before God at judgment, there will be no excuses allowed for the way other people were. At the very heart of the issue is my faith or lack of faith in God. "He that cometh to God must believe that HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."

As far as God is concerned, you and I are completely independent of each other in terms of our responsibility to Him. What you do cannot save me, and what I do cannot save you. One of the most valuable discoveries I ever made was that God wrote my name in the book of life and only He can remove it. I can't write your name in it, and I can't take it out. Only you can save or destroy yourself.

What do Christians do that causes one to lose faith?

Christians sometimes do not live the way God called them to live.

This fact is nothing new. The entire Bible is filled with stories of men and women whose lives were stained with failure. Go throughout the list - - - Moses was a murderer and a disobedient leader. Abraham doubted God would give him a son of his wife Sara, so he took her handmaiden and bore a child by her. David stole another man's wife then had that man killed in battle. Even the great prophet Elijah succumbed to fear of the evil woman Jezebel, instead of trusting God. The Apostle Peter denied his association with Jesus, swearing with an oath. And the list is endless of men and women who committed minor infractions against the perfect will of God. Yet the scripture is careful to teach that if we sin, we have an advocate in Jesus, and if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive all our unrighteousness. You must be forgiving of other people's failures, too.

If a Christian sins, and does NOT repent, however, we are inclined to be stumbled by their bad example. This too is wrong. Whether or not the Christian corrects his error is between him and God. Though all men fail, Jesus never fails. If you are following men, and men fail, you will fail. But if you follow Jesus, He will never give you an occasion to stumble. So stop looking at others and look at Jesus. He as always been the ONLY way, no matter what!

Christians sometimes do wrong to others. 

This is only a variation of the first reason. If a Christian will do wrong before God, why wouldn't he do wrong before you? (Are you more worthy of respect than God?) Remember - if men betrayed Jesus, they will also betray you. So what's new? Again, get your eyes off men, and get them on HIM. It would seem that if you first study the scriptures, and learn the way that is really right, then you will be well-founded in proper behavior, and will not be seriously hindered by people who err.

Why should you not allow a Christian
to make an unbeliever out of you?

Your eternal soul is worth more
than any disenchantment with others.

For the sake of your eternal salvation, be bigger than the offender. If a prominent Christian, even a leader, lets you down, look beyond their failure and see that no matter what happens to him or her, you must not fail. None of the horror stories change the ultimate fact: Heaven and Hell are real, and it will be a personal tragedy of tragedies if you do not make your entrance into the kingdom of Heaven. If a sinner or a backslider or a hypocrite gets in your way, just go around them and don't look back. God will deal justly with the phony. Just you make sure all is well with YOUR soul! After all, Jesus said that many of the first would be last, and the last will be first. It just may be that you will end up with a wonderful reward that could have belonged to the one who failed if they had only persevered as you did.

In the long run, you will recognize how important it is
to be faithful regardless of others' performance.

If you are honest with yourself, you know that you too have faults. Yet you would not want anyone else to stumble because you are only human. You would surely encourage others to look at Jesus and not at your mistakes. and finally, if you really mean business with God, you will undoubtedly correct every mistake as quickly as you can so that there will be nothing between you and your Savior on Judgment Day. Let's not spend our days stumbling over one another's mistakes. Let us focus again and again on the prize of eternal life, and strive for the mastery at any cost. For above all else... I MUST BE SAVED!

Be in Church this week!

"LET US MAKE MAN" does NOT prove the Trinity

What about God's statement, "Let US make man in OUR image..."

Who was God speaking about - "US" and "OUR"?

"And God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness..." Genesis 1:26.

"Majestic plural" is the grammatical term that applies to the statement "Let US make man." A Monarch uses a plural pronoun to speak not only for himself, but his entire kingdom. It is also called the royal "we". Queen Victoria spoke to the ladies of her court saying "We are not amused." Czar Nicholas of Russia abdicated his throne saying, "We have thought it well to renounce the Throne of the Russian Empire." ONE person speaks for an empire.

My Apostolic friend from India (now living in Texas), Priti Kujar, informed me, "Being a speaker of Hindi language, I can relate to the fact that monarchs in India mostly used to use the plural 'we' rather than 'I' when referring to themselves. It reflected their stature and authority. There are still some community which uses 'we' instead of 'I' for referring to oneself."

The use of the majestic plural - or "royal 'we'"in no wise proves that God is a trinity.

The White Throne Judgment

Artists Conception of
The White Throne
Jesus Christ will reward His saints at His coming. But there will be another eternal reward given at the White Throne Judgment.

by Ken Raggio

"...we shall ALL stand before the JUDGMENT SEAT of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, EVERY KNEE shall bow to me, and EVERY TONGUE shall confess to God. So then EVERY ONE OF US shall give account of himself to God," Romans 14:10-12.

"Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. For WE MUST ALL APPEAR before the JUDGMENT SEAT of CHRIST; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men," 2 Corinthians 5:9-11.

There are NOT TWO thrones in Heaven. There is no difference in Judgment seats. There is not one Judgment seat for the wicked and a DIFFERENT Judgment seat for the righteous. We must ALL appear before the Throne.

"And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne," Revelation 4:2.

John called it "the throne of God and of the Lamb," Revelation 22:3. God is the eternal Spirit. Christ is the only Body God ever had. Jesus is the incarnation of God. When we finally look upon the Throne, we will see the invisible God the Father incarnate in the body of Jesus Christ. We will all be judged at that time and place. Saints and sinners, Jews and Gentiles will all be judged before the great White Throne of Jesus Christ AFTER the Millennial Kingdom of Christ has passed.

Dead Men Shall Live, Dead Bodies Shall Arise
- - -
Christ will raise the righteous dead and the living saints when He returns to earth. But Isaiah and other prophets condemned the wicked. “They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them,” 26:14. After Christ rules for 1000 years on earth, all men will be summoned to the White Throne Judgment where the wicked will be sentenced to Hell (Revelation 20). “Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: ...the earth shall cast out the dead," Isaiah 26:19.

"The LORD is known by the JUGMENT which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. ...The WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL [sheol], and all the nations that forget God," Psalms 9:16-17.

For Evermore
- - -
Revelation 20 reveals that Messiah will rule the world from Jerusalem for 1000 years. Afterward, the old heavens and earth will be dissolved (2 Peter 3:10-12; Matthew 24:35; Daniel 7:14). The wicked will be judged at the White Throne and sent to Hell. The righteous will then receive their eternal rewards and be given entrance into Heaven for eternity. “The Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it,” Revelation 21:22. Ezekiel's “Millennium” prophecies extended to “for evermore.”
- - -
Ezekiel 37:25-28 - “David shall be their prince for ever, ..they shall dwell therein, ...forever; sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.”

Saints Will Resurrect First, Sinners 1000 Years Later
- - -
The FIRST resurrection will occur when Jesus returns to earth. The DEAD IN CHRIST will rise, and LIVING SAINTS will be caught up to meet them in the air (I Thessalonians 4:16-17).

“The rest of the dead [the wicked] lived not again until the thousand years were finished,” Revelation 20:4-5. Daniel foresaw both resurrections. Sinners will be resurrected and judged at the White Throne (Revelation 20:11) AFTER the Millennium.

The children of Israel (Jews) will also be raised from the dead when Jesus comes.

"Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And YE SHALL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall PUT MY SPIRIT IN YOU, and ye shall live, and I SHALL PLACE YOU IN YOUR OWN LAND: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD," Ezekiel 37:12-14.

At the coming of the Lord to the battle of Armageddon, the children of Israel (Jews) will rise from their graves and behold Jesus Christ face to face. They will then realize that Jesus is their true Messiah, and they will mourn and repent for having killed Him.

"And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, THE SPIRIT OF GRACE and of supplications: and THEY SHALL LOOK UPON ME WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn," Zechariah 12:9-10.

"Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, SHALL BE GRAFFED IN: for GOD IS ABLE TO GRAFF THEM IN AGAIN. For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: HOW MUCH MORE SHALL THESE, which be the natural branches, BE GRAFFED INTO THEIR OWN OLIVE TREE? For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. AND SO ALL ISRAEL SHALL BE SAVED: AS IT IS WRITTEN, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I SHALL TAKE AWAY THEIR SINS," Romans 11:22-27.

The Jews will live and reign with Christ IN THE HOLY LAND during the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. The twelve Apostles of the Lamb will rule over them during that time. I cannot detail all of that here. It is carefully explained in Ezekiel 40-47. Read the related lessons found in those chapters (40-47) in these teachings from the Book of Ezekiel'.

Two Resurrections - 1000 Years Apart
- - -
Jesus taught that there will be two resurrections - one of the righteous dead, and one of the wicked - at different times (Revelation 20:4-5). The righteous dead will be resurrected before Jesus rules on earth for 1000 years, and will rule with Him during that time. The children of Israel (Jews) will be resurrected to face Jesus Christ and repent of their sins (Ezekiel 37:12-14 and Zechariah 12:9-10).

The rest of the wicked Gentiles who remain in their graves will not be resurrected until after that Millennium and must then face Jesus at the White Throne Judgment to be sentenced to Hell for eternity.
- - -
John 5:29: The dead "...shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.”

Daniel 12:2 - “And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.”

We Must All Appear Before The Judgment Seat Of Christ
- - -
Every human being on earth desperately needs to hear this announcement: “You have an appointment with Jesus Christ.” People from every nation, tribe and tongue - Jews and Gentiles - will one day stand face-to-face with Jesus Christ on His White Throne (Revelation 20:11-15). Everyone whose name is not found in the Book of Life will be cast into the lake of fire.
- - -
2 Corinthians 5:10 - “For we must ALL appear before the JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST; that every one may receive the things done in his body, ACCORDING TO THAT HE HATH DONE, WHETHER IT BE GOOD OR BAD."

Jesus Will Judge The Living And Dead At His Appearing
- - -
The wicked dead will not be raised until the Second Resurrection, AFTER the 1000-year kingdom of Christ. Sinners will be judged at the White Throne and sent to Hell.

"And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire," Revelation 20:11-15.

However, all the Saints of God, dead and living, will be INSTANTLY judged when Jesus returns to earth. The righteous dead will be raised immortal, and living saints will be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye (1 Corinthians 15:52).
- - -
2 Timothy 4:1 - “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick [living] and the dead at his appearing...”

Tormented In The Presence Of Angels And The Lamb
- - -
Revelation 20:11-15 reveals that all the wicked will be resurrected AFTER the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, to stand before God AT HIS WHITE THRONE. They will be judged and cast into Hell. But 1000 years earlier, at Armageddon, Jesus will personally judge His LIVING enemies. He will cast the Beast, False Prophet and those who worship them into a lake of fire in Jerusalem to be observed by men and angels . (See Isaiah 66:16,24). He will also destroy the Assyrian Man of Sin (who will commit the Abomination of Desolation in the Third Temple) ON HIS HOLY MOUNTAIN in Jerusalem. "The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand: That I WILL BREAK THE ASSYRIAN IN MY LAND, and UPON MY MOUNTAINS TREAD HIM UNDER FOOT: THEN SHALL HIS YOKE DEPART FROM OFF THEM, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations [at Armageddon]," Isaiah 14:24-26.

Those who took the Mark of the Beast will be sentenced to Hell with all the other wicked. Revelation 14:10 - “[Those who worship the beast] shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.”

The Second Death
- - -
The FIRST DEATH is the death of the our mortal bodies. Bodies of the dead in Christ will rise immortal in the First Resurrection. Living saints will also rise at that time in the Rapture to be with Christ forever.

"For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words," 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18.

SOULS of sinners go to Hell when they die. Moses taught the first doctrine of Hell in Deuteronomy 32:22. "For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell [hades]."

Jesus taught that when the rich man died, he woke up in FLAMES OF HELL. Lazarus woke up in the company of Abraham and the saints.

"And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And IN HELL he lift up his eyes, BEING IN TORMENTS, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and COOL MY TONGUE; FOR I AM TORMENTED IN THIS FLAME. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence," Luke 16:22-26.

But the physical, earthly BODIES of the dead must wait in the grave for the Second Resurrection, when they will face Christ at His White Throne Judgment. Their resurrected bodies of the wicked will then be cast into Hell. That is the second death.
- - -
Revelation 20:6 - “Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power.”

Earth And Heaven Flee Away From God's Great White Throne
- - -
What scientists call the “expanding” universe is NO PROOF that the universe began with a big-bang. The universe is expanding because everything in the material realm is fleeing the Throne of God. Only those of us who are born again will ever return to the Throne of God. The universe is not expanding because of a big-bang, but because the Throne of God is at its center.
- - -
Revelation 20:11 - “I saw a GREAT WHITE THRONE, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”

The Great White Throne Judgment
- - -
At the end of the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, all the dead will stand before Jesus, who will be seated on the Great White Throne. The Book of Life will contain the names of the redeemed. Books will have recorded every man's works, which will be judged. Never believe anybody who tells you that God will not judge your works. Both saints and sinners will be judged by their works. “I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be,” Revelation 22:12.
- - -
Revelation 20:13 - “They were judged every man according to their works.”

Will Anybody Be Saved After The Rapture?
- - -
"Will anybody be saved after the Rapture?” If you are not taken in the First Resurrection and Rapture, you will not be resurrected until 1000 years later. Then, at the White Throne, you will be cast into Hell forever. We are not told if mortals will be born again during the Millennial Kingdom of Christ. If they are, their names will be found in the Book of Life at the White Throne Judgment, and they will be saved.
- - -
Revelation 20:13 - “Death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.”

Death And Hell Will Be Cast Into The Lake Of Fire
- - -
God's saints will be raised to be with Jesus in the FIRST RESURRECTION and RAPTURE. But the souls of the wicked will remain in the grave ("death and hell [grave]") until the SECOND RESURRECTION, 1000 years later. Then, they will be bodily resurrected to face Jesus at the White Throne, to be “judged every man according to their works,” 20:13. All sinners will be cast bodily into Hell at that event.
- - -
Revelation 20:14-15 - “Death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”

The World Will Pass Away - Your Soul Is Eternal
- - -
"What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” One soul is worth more than the whole world and all its birds, beasts, flowers, trees, diamonds, gold, oil, mountains, rivers, cities and nations. If you are wise enough to forfeit these temporal things to do God's will, your reward will be infinite.
- - -
Matthew 16:26-27 - “What shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.”

Is MUSIC Killing Off Apostolic Churches?

I travel a lot, and find myself in all kinds of Apostolic Pentecostal Churches all around the country. One thing I have noticed that deeply, deeply troubles me is the MUSIC.

I know what I see. I have eyes and I have ears. I see platforms covered with musicians and singers and instruments. But WHAT I DO NOT SEE is congregations singing.

Again and again and again, I see keyboardists and "praise" singers putting on a show. I watch in horror as entire congregations stand there in a coma while the Church musicians sing songs that nobody else sings. Nobody learns these songs, because many of them are impossible to learn. They cannot be sung as a solo. They cannot be remembered, because they are not memorable. They are PAINFULLY repetitious. At this point, I have come to HATE songs that contain the word "AWESOME." How many times in one service do we have to tell God that He is "AWESOME"? God you are awesome. God you are awesome. God you are awesome. That is not profound. That is redundant. If that is all we can say about God, we don't know God.

Go ahead. Crucify me. Hate me. But I am telling you as pointedly as I know how, MUSIC is KILLING Apostolic Pentecostal Churches. The music is NOT conducive to true spiritual growth. FAR too many of the songs being used today are empty, empty, empty, empty, empty.

I am a writer. In the last ten years, I have written almost 3 million words on Bible subjects. I know the power of words. I understand the potential of a well-constructed sentence. I also know the pointlessness of a sentence that has no meaning. And I can tell you unequivocally that a huge lot of the songs being used today have no substantive message. Many songs use vain repetitions, incomplete sentences, and meaningless phraseology. They are loaded with buzzwords, but make no meaningful statements.

When are we going to REVOLT against DUMB music in the Church? I'm calling for a revolt right now. It's time for Christians to demand better SONGS. It is time to BOYCOTT Hillsong. It is time to BOYCOTT "Christian" radio and "Christian" entertainment.

I know I'm opening a can of worms. I know that this kind of talk offends church musicians and praise singers. I don't care. I'm an elder. I've been on church platforms singing and making music since I was eight years old. I am old. Yes. At 64, I am automatically discounted and discredited by most young Christians. But I know what I see. I see the dumbing down of Christianity. The dumbing down of Christian music. The dumbing down of Christians. The dumbing down of the Church. I see whole congregations standing glassy-eyed and speechless through half-hour-long marathons of pounding bass guitars, hyperactive drumming, and bouncing singers.

And I can't accept that. I have to cry aloud. I have to lift my voice and object to what I see.

There are hundreds, even thousands, of powerful, articulate, doctrinally-rich songs that have been written over the past 100 years. People who sang those songs REMEMBERED them, and continue singing them all their lives. They had messages in them. Singing those songs was like preaching a sermon to yourself, because they were full of Gospel messages, doctrines, and even conviction and consecration. Yet most popular "Churches" today would not recognize more than a very few of them. That is not just tragic, it is evil. It is a Satanic, Hellacious ploy against the historical roots of modern Christianity. It is the severing of all ties with the past. It is the rejection of the very sanctified process that brought the modern Church into existence. It is a refuting, a rebutting, a denial, of the profound works of the Holy Ghost that built a worldwide Pentecostal Church.

The suffocating arrogance that presumes to say that the old paths were wrong and that this generation knows better than any generation before it is toxic and

heretical. This generation of Christians is NOT more biblically astute. Its preachers are NOT more spiritual, more godly, more consecrated. In large part, the modern Church is infinitely more carnal, more worldly, more sensuous, more materialistic than any of its predecessors in the last 100 years.

It is time for a REVIVAL of the WORD OF GOD, and that may never actually happen until we purposefully and intentionally demand that our churches be purged of all shallow, empty, dumbed-down "ministries." How will that ever happen as long as we continue to celebrate such shallowness?

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein," Jeremiah 6:16.

- - - - -

I have been publishing online since 1996. Very few people in the world have published more gospel preaching and teaching on the Internet than I have. I have interacted personally with countless tens of thousands of people via emails and direct messages, and faced every conceivable belligerence from atheists, gays, Catholics, Trinitarians of every flag, JWs, Adventists, Branhamites, Cessationists, Calvinists, Preterists, Pre-Tribbers, Ecumenicals, Muslims, etc., etc. ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

But I've never seen a topic create such a firestorm as the subject of music in the Church. I have made it crystal clear that I believe the bulk of modern Christian music is poison in the pot. No less than 90% of the responses I get passionately agree with me. Of course, that stat is skewed by the fact that most of my followers followed me in the first place because of my conservative views.

Nevertheless, I am absolutely positive that I am not alone in detesting the new breed of music in the Church. I will not restate all my objections here.

I have been mocked and ridiculed by many of my own peers for taking that position. And in that mockery and condescension, an even greater problem is exposed. Many of our ministers despise the old paths just as certainly as the non-Apostolics who write and perform those songs. There is virtually NO vetting, NO qualifying, NO screening of the doctrinal content of modern Christian music, as long as it has a good sound, a good beat, and attracts young people. They NEVER recognize hyper-grace, easy-believism, word-of-faith, success-prosperity HERETICAL LIES in those lyrics. All they notice is the entertainment value of them.

I have personally witnessed several youth events where the pounding, pulsating music was played endlessly in the background, although the lyrics were at best indiscernible, and at worst, doctrinally-sterile (or heretical) and more representative of and identifiable with NON-APOSTOLIC movements. They are PROUD to be like Hillsong or "Christian" TV stars and starlets, or to be culturally hip and cool. They are PROUD to be "relevant" to the world, although they don't realize that they have at last become irrelevant to the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, and Truth, Righteousness, and Holiness.

Everything about that sounds all the alarms for me. The fact that it sounds NO ALARMS for them is the very reason why I distance myself from them, and sometimes block them from my circle of influence.

If you don't like my position on these matters, nobody is forcing you to follow me. You can say anything you want to say anywhere else, but not on my timeline. I am going to say and preach what I believe with all the force and conviction I have in my soul.

If you don't like me or what I say, goodbye, adios, adieu, arrivederci, auf weidersehen.

How to DESTROY an Apostolic Pentecostal Church in short order:

1. Abandon KJV and use multiple versions of the Bible. Breed doubts about how things used to be said, and nullify all scripture memorization.

2. Cancel Sunday night services. Everybody needs family time. They can then go to ball games and movies. That will give them an entirely new perspective on God, life, and spiritual matters.

3. Throw away the song books. Abandon all the old songs. Never sing them again, unless you do so with an apology, or a mocking joke. There are too many doctrines and calls to holiness and godly living in them that we don't want to deal with anymore. Disband the choir and the song leader. Give all the music responsibilities to the young people. Don't let any elders have any say in the music. Welcome and encourage the use of popular music from the most rabid adversaries of Apostolic doctrines and standards.

4. Stop preaching doctrines and holiness standards. They are so old-fashioned. All they do is run people off.

5. That should do it. You can add all the new-fangled methods you want now, because it will only take a little while before nobody in the building will remember what Pentecost was ever like. If they do, they will only mock it, and caustically deride anyone who still holds it sacred.

6. In less than one year, almost nothing at all will even vaguely resemble the Apostolic Pentecostal Church that was known around the world for almost 100 years. Nobody will believe that your church was ever associated with Apostolic Pentecostals.

- - -

Any man who has been in the ministry for a few decades has almost certainly been the subject of someone's vitriol and vicious animosities. Sometimes, an entire group of people will assault, slander, defame, and perhaps even attempt to destroy him.

In his youth, such attacks tend to knock the wind out of his sails. They can be utterly devastating. But in his old age, they tend to humor him when he remembers that he is still standing, while many of those who once tried to take him down have vanished from the scene.

Not only do great men of God have to learn this lesson, but all true saints must come to terms with the reality that when you stand for something that is unpopular, YOU ARE DESTINED to incur the wrath of the multitudes who embrace a popular, but erroneous position. Anytime you take God's side in a matter, you instantly inherit God's enemies. Those who hate Him and His Truth will hate you just as much.

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and YE SHALL BE HATED of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another," Matthew 24:9-10.

"Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me," Micah 7:8.

"Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above," John 19:11.

"What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?" Romans 8:31.

"When my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah," Psalms 61:2-4.

"For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall," Psalms 18:27-29.

The Pope Is A Jesuit. What Does That Mean?

Pope Francis (Jorge Bergoglio)
with Adolfo Nicolás Pachón,
Superior General (the Black Pope)
of the Society of Jesus - the Jesuits
The Pope is a JESUIT. Learn what a Jesuit is.
- - -
Ignatius de Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus (1541) - the JESUITS - held a vision that was beyond grandiose:

“Ought we not to conclude that we are called to win to God [the Pope], not only a single nation, a single country, but all nations, all the kingdoms of the world?” [Andrew Steinmetz, History of the Jesuits, (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Lea and Blanchard, 1848), Vol. I, p. 141.]

This would not prove to be evangelistic fervor for the saving of sinful souls, but instead, it would show itself to be a demon-possessed, Luciferic scheme for absolute, dictatorial, world dominion of the secular, political sort - to make the Pope sovereign King of the World. The true Christ was nowhere in the picture.

But Loyola’s vision for the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church was nothing less than preternatural - a theological term used to distinguish marvels or deceptive trickery, often attributed to witchcraft or demons.

Loyola’s ambitions were decidedly Luciferic, spawned in the pit of Hell.

Loyola envisioned the Roman Church as a global monarchy. He meant to make the Roman Church a universal kingdom. The Pope would not only be the triple-tiaraed King of the Holy Roman Empire, but also of the entire world. He intended to make the Pope the King of ALL Kings. Why would the Pope not love him?

Loyola taught his charges, “ …we must seriously inculcate in the minds of all, that the state of the church …now changed into a monarchy …cannot maintain its ground against mighty enemies, unless supported by great authority and power, and that it is that little stone which was foretold by the prophet [Daniel 2:44, 45] …and afterwards rises into a vast mountain.” [W. C. Brownlee, Secret Instructions of the Jesuits, (New York: American and Foreign Christian Union, 1857), pp. 81, 83.

In Loyola’s view, Daniel prophesied a global Papal Kingdom! But that is NOT what Daniel prophesied. That prophecy most assuredly spoke of the future Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ; not of a pope.

Loyola’s vision was to give the Pope the prophesied Kingdom of Christ! The Pontifex Maximus of the Roman Catholic Church would be the Caesar of the whole world when Loyola’s army was finished. He would have uncontested authority and power in the world. The Pope would answer to no man - except the Superior General - the Jesuit God on earth.

Until you wake up and realize that since the days of Loyola, the Roman Catholic Church has not been simply a religion, but it has been a global STATE - a stealth, secular, shadow government behind all governments, you will never understand what is going on in the world. Never! The Roman Catholic Church rules the world, this very day, via the Jesuits.

Loyola’s obsession with the task was diabolical. Nary a man has ever been more demon-possessed. Under the tutelage of their first Superior General Loyola in his Spiritual Exercises, Section 353.1, Jesuits were instructed, “We must put aside all judgment of our own, and keep the mind ever ready and prompt to obey in all things …the hierarchical Church.”

365.13 adds, “We must hold fast to the following principle: What seems to be white, I will believe black if the hierarchical Church so defines.”

Jesuit co-founder, Francis Xavier said, “I would not even believe in the Gospels were the Holy Church to forbid it.”

The Pope was so elated with the Jesuits’ propositions that he is said to have cried out, “This is the finger-stroke of God!” and quickly issued the Papal Bull, “Regimini militantis ecclesiae,”(“On the Supremacy of the Church Militant”), ordaining the Jesuits into the Roman Catholic Church.

The Pope now had a militia; a kamikaze hit-squad! A “Church Militant!”

Loyola’s creeds and the subsequent highly-secret Jesuit oaths were supremely diabolical pillars of blind obedience to Satan’s minions - the princes of the Roman Catholic Church. Theirs were not vows to God, His Word, His Truth, or His Will, but vows to the anti-Christ Pope, his Primates, the “Virgin Mary,” the Harlot Church, and the abominable, idolatrous demons of Mystery Babylon.

One element of the JESUIT OATH OF INDUCTION is the Latin acrostic, INRI. “When a Jesuit of the minor rank is to be elevated to command, he is conducted into the Chapel of the Convent of the Order, where there are only three others present; the principal or Superior standing in front of the altar. On either side stands a monk, one of whom holds a banner of yellow and white, which are the Papal colors, and the other a black banner with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS,” or…

“It is JUST to EXTERMINATE or annihilate IMPIOUS or heretical KINGS, Governments, or Rulers.” [Charles Didier, Subterranean Rome, translated from French, 1843, containing the text of the Congressional Record of the U.S.A. (House Bill 1523, Contested election case of Eugene C. Bonniwell, against Thos. S. Butler, Feb. 15, 1913, pp. 3215-3216)]

One section alone of The Extreme Oath of the Jesuits says:

“I furthermore promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly or openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Liberals, as I am directed to do, to extirpate and exterminate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex or condition; and that I will hang, waste, boil, flay, strangle and bury alive these infamous heretics, rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women and crush their infants’ heads against the walls, in order to annihilate forever their execrable race.

That when the same cannot be done openly, I will secretly use the poisoned cup, the strangulating cord, the steel of the poniard [dagger] or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honor, rank, dignity, or authority of the person or persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agent of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Faith, of the Society of Jesus.” (ibid, previous reference)

Why was this atrocious, murderous oath not viciously condemned by the Pope? Because since the days of Pope Gregory VII (1073-1085), Catholic Canon Law had stated,

“…it is no murder to kill a heretic.”

The Constitutions of the Jesuits pledged them as mindless servants of an evil Pope, and an even more evil Superior General. For 500 years since, the Society of Jesus has conducted Inquisitions, and persecuted and murdered multiplied millions of “heretics” and “infidels,” despite the fact that they are themselves the most nauseous bastion of anti-Christ heretics on earth.

The Jesuits eventually devised a draconian agenda to conquer the world. Loyola’s personal friend, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V came to his assistance by engaging his European armies in the Jesuit war of Counter-Reformation, a grandiose attempt to totally destroy all Protestants.

Loyola’s spiritualism was demonic. It came as much from mystical, pagan, Babylonian, Gnostic, and Illuminati thought as from Roman Catholicism. Little more than few portions of his imagery have any true Biblical accuracy.

Consequently, the birth of the Jesuits was one of Satan’s grandest accomplishments in the history of the world. The symbiotic relationship that quickly developed between Loyola’s Jesuits and the Pope clearly demonstrates that Roman Catholicism and the Babylonian Mysteries embedded deep inside Jesuitism are fully compatible, and powerfully intertwined. They were made for each other! Both are Luciferic. Both are supremely evil at the core.

The Church Militant?

Jesuits soon heralded themselves as soldiers of the “Church Militant.” But this was no esoteric, spiritual war they were engaging. Their mission statement specified real flesh and blood warfare. Alarmingly, there is no such “Church Militant” of any scriptural precedence or legitimacy. Jesus never recruited hit squads or suggested organizing military offensives. He never ordained bloodshed or armed conflicts to build His Church; He clearly forbade it. But the Pope’s new army would kill anyone on demand.

Today, Jesuits are innocuously called the Pope’s “missionaries.” But in reality, the Society of Jesus is an intelligence and banking operation. The Jesuits are a top-secret hit squad, holy mafia, and priesthood of goons, who will do anything and everything they are told to do without a single question or objection, including assassinations, wars, revolutions, overthrowing governments, and other evils that defy imagination.

Are Jesuits still in business today?

In a word? They rule the world.

Yes, they really do.

Pope Francis at the U.N. - What Did He Say?

Pope Francis speaking to the United Nations
I am writing this on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Pope Francis has been in America all week. He spoke at the White House, at the Capitol to a Joint Session of Congress and to the entire world, at the United Nations to the General Assembly, at St. Patrick's Cathedral, at Madison Square Gardens, in Philadelphia at Congress Hall, and in several other venues. At 78 years old, his stamina was utterly remarkable.

I had anticipated writing a summary article of the Popes speeches while he was here. But the Pope has evermore put me to the task. His speeches were no run-of-the-mill speeches. They are not easily commented on. Virtually every one of his speeches were loaded for bear hunting. I had anticipated that his speeches would shake the world, but I never dreamed he would be so aggressive, so in-your-face, so iron-fisted, so revolutionary.

I am aware that many who read this will disagree on that point, possibly to the point of fury. Nevertheless, I will make my case.

The crowds have swooned to this Pope like other crowds have swooned to Michael Jackson, and before him, Elvis Presley. Pope Francis could have said ANYTHING and the crowds would have cheered him. He could have sold their souls to the devil, and they would have kissed his feet.

Tragically, that is just about exactly what he did, and they didn't even know it.

Unfortunately, I cannot summarize his speeches right here and right now. Again, I say, "The Pope has put me to the task." His speeches remind me of U.S. military tactics of the Vietnam War: carpet bombing! The Pope carpet bombed America. He dropped a blanket of bombs with such a fast and furious pace that few people really knew what hit them. We have been rendered speechless.

Maybe you didn't hear them, but I did. I have been studying the Roman Catholic Church for decades, as well as the World Government, the New World Order, the Jesuits, and this whole push toward a One World Government. Because of that, I am keen to hear and discern a lot of things that the average man on the street is not likely to hear. And therein lies the problem. I cannot comment briefly on this week. It is going to take some time.

Therefore, I am going to take the next few days to download the full text of all his speeches, and comb carefully through each of them. Then I will organize his major talking points and analyze them in the light of Bible prophecies and all things scriptural and godly. When I am done, I will have produced, as it were, a mini-encyclical, much on the pattern of the Pope's own treatments of major subjects, only in less words.

MEANWHILE, to prepare you for what I will be saying, I have extracted a few critical pages from my book, THE DANIEL PROPHECIES - GOD'S PLAN FOR THE LAST DAYS, for you to consider.

Before I can effectively show you the powerful and dangerous things that Pope Francis has said to us this week, it is imperative that you get a better understanding of exactly who and what the Roman Catholic Church is, and its correlation with the United Nations, the United States, and the soon-to-come One World Government.

Therefore, I submit to you here several pages of rich-content observations. I pray that you will take the time both to read, to study, and to contemplate these few pages. I suppose that many of you will never be the same after you come to the knowledge of what I will show you here.

Within the next few days, I will publish another article, more direct and hard-hitting on the subject of all the Pope had to say to the United States and to the world this week. Until then, I ask you to prayerfully consider these excerpts from THE DANIEL PROPHECIES.

HERE ARE SOME THINGS FOR YOU TO CONSIDER BEFORE I POST an analysis of Pope Francis' speech at the UN and other U.S. venues.


In world politics, the Vatican has the most sophisticated diplomatic corps in the world, with a field staff of Papal envoys (Nuncios, or Vatican ambassadors) operating in almost every country on earth.

Catholics-Jesuits in the United Nations

Not the least of Rome’s powerful diplomatic venues is that of Permanent Observer to the United Nations, where the Pope and his delegates speak frequently to premium audiences of kings and presidents in the U.N. podium - the only global religious figure with such access to the plenary sessions of the U.N. General Assembly.

Joseph S. Rossi, a Jesuit, wrote two books, American Catholics and the Formation of the United Nations, and Uncharted Territory: The American Catholic Church at the United Nations, in which he documents the early, powerful roles of Catholics in the formation and day-to-day operations of the United Nations.

In the pre-U.N. Charter days of April, 1945, Archbishop John J. Mitty organized three services in the San Francisco Civic Center in which 40,000 people heard Fulton Sheen, the priest of TV and radio fame, speak on The Moral Basis of Peace. Sheen’s sermon was picked up by the national media. Days later, 15,000 U.N. celebrants attended a Solemn Pontifical Mass to hear a 1,000-voice children’s choir, and Archbishop Mitty “declare that by the providence of God the United Nations charter conference was being held ‘in the city of St. Francis… the saint of universal love.’” (Joseph Samuel Rossi, American Catholics and the Formation of the United Nations, University Press, 1993, p. 76.)

Catholics LOVE the U.N.

Mitty closely monitored and schmoozed with hundreds of Catholics who were delegates from nations all over the world.

Rossi documented the role of Catherine Schaeffer, Director of the National Catholic Welfare Office, in the early days of the U.N. She worked tirelessly to penetrate the U.N. organizational structure, especially the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), literally convincing U.N. officials to allow Non-Governmental Organizations-NGOs to gain observer status.

Subsequently, she skillfully established many Catholic NGOs inside the ECOSOC and other U.N. agencies. Schaeffer’s Catholic efforts at the U.N. in those early years set many precedents for future Catholic roles in the U.N. Schaeffer worked “to increase international Catholic leverage at the United Nations,” and “to oppose NGO status for organizations whose tenets were contrary to the teachings and principals of the Roman Catholic Church and the directives of the pope.” (Joseph Samuel Rossi, Unchartered Territory: The American Catholic Church at the United Nations, 1946-1972, CUA Press, 2006, p. 12.)

That was more than 60 years ago. Have no doubt that at the international level, i.e., inside the United Nations, Catholic-Jesuits are still very hard at work, exerting the maximum influence in every venue of any significance. In 1982, U.N. Assistant Secretary-General Robert Muller reported that no less than twenty-four powerful Catholic NGOs operated inside the U.N. (Robert Muller, New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, 1982, Chapter 6.)

Today, there are 87 Catholic NGOs in the U.N., and many more coming. (Kevin Ahern, The Role of International Catholic Organizations in Promoting the Gospel in the “Community of Nations,” International Movement of Catholic Students, p. 5.)

Neither should you have any doubt that at the national, state and local levels, Catholic-Jesuits are also hard at work in every single venue of any significance, both in and outside of governments, in the U.S. and in every nation on earth. You would be AGHAST if you knew how much.

Why are these secular, historical facts Biblically significant?

Because the events I have described to you [in previous chapters of THE DANIEL PROPHECIES] chronicle the activities of the four prevailing spirits of this age - The Four Horsemen of Zechariah 6 and Revelation 6: Catholicism, Communism, Capitalism and Islam. ALL FOUR of those spirits are under the command of the Superior General of the Society of Jesus.

The Black Pope, sitting at the highest echelon of power on earth, is ruled by the ancient, evil Spirit of Rome, who is ruled by Lucifer.

These are the spirits that will precipitate forty-two months of Hell-on-earth that Jesus and the Hebrew prophets warned us about thousands of years ago. These spirits will be the perpetrators of the Final Solution, the Grand Inquisition, or otherwise known as the Great Tribulation that will come upon the whole earth, spoken of by Jesus Christ in Matthew 24.

In September of 2005, I attended the United Nations World Summit, which was the largest conclave of kings, presidents, prime ministers, sheikhs, princes, and other heads of state IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD! 153 heads of state gathered for most of a week at the UN headquarters. Naturally, many things could be said about such an event, but ONE notable feature of that Summit was the extremely high security.

I stayed at the giant Ramada Inn at JFK airport in New York (which has since been razed), and took the subway to the UN each day. That hotel was also the headquarters for over 200 Secret Service agents who were in town for the event. (I felt very safe that week!) Outside, a giant parking lot, the size of a typical Walmart parking lot, was FULL of black suburbans and limos with dark glass, and outfitted with the highest-tech security and communications devices. And that was only the Secret Service. For at least ten blocks around the UN, thousands of police were stationed every few feet. Giant dump trucks filled with sand ware parked at intersections, blocking access to forbidden streets, surrounded by police cruisers and dozens of cops on foot. Security blimps and balloons hovered in the skies above the UN Headquarters, and armored Coast Guard cutters cruised up and down the East River, carefully watching over the vast complex.

Long lines of journalists were required to have UN "passports" which had been approved months in advance, and upon arrival, marched slowly through a big-top tent that was set up outside, and filled with every kind of scanner and security device imaginable to screen every person who entered. Police dogs sniffed every package and bags going through the line, and purses and pockets were emptied for police inspection.

Upon entering the building, additional checkpoints were set up for additional screening at every security level. If I remember correctly, there were reportedly 4,000 police stationed in the immediate vicinity of the UN headquarters as the motorcades of heads of state from around the world entered the compound and deposited their powerful passengers..

BUT - that was nothing!!

POPE FRANCIS is coming to Washington DC and New York City in a few days, and the press (NBC) is reporting that HIS SECURITY detail will be larger than anything ever seen in the United States. "Dan Bongino, who worked with the Secret Service for over two decades, acknowledged the task ahead of them. [He said] 'It is the largest security operation that I think we are ever going to see.'"

The POPE demands more security than all the kings and presidents in the world COMBINED!…/pope-francis-visit-to-bring-abo…/

Think about that. Big Brother is coming out of the closet. Those mystics who are adept at the Luciferic mysteries (such as Madam Blavatsky and Aleister Crowley) would have seen this as "The Externalization of the Hierarchy." It is the unveiling and revealing of Satan's long-held-secret master of Hell's treacherous, diabolical world government.

Don't forget that as far back as 800 AD, the Popes, wearing their Triple Tiara crowns, crowned the Emperors of Europe (the "Holy Roman Empire") for a thousand years. The Popes have established themselves for many centuries now as the King of Kings!

An article published just days ago by a high-ranking Catholic cleric posited that Pope Francis would be appearing before the UN General Assembly as "the Father and Pastor of the World."

But I am going to best the cleric by saying that Pope Francis is coming to town as representative of the office of the very prophesied FALSE PROPHET of Revelation 13.

Is Francis the FALSE PROPHET of Revelation 13? I cannot say for sure. He will be 79 in December. He has one lung and a bad back. He has said that if his health begins to fail, he will resign and allow another to take his office. And in light of Daniel's prophecies concerning "Daniel's Seventieth Week," the real False Prophet will be in power when Jesus returns to destroy him at Armageddon. That means that Francis would have to stay in power until he is AT LEAST 86 years old to fulfill that prophecy. Therefore, I must allow for the possibility that there may yet be another pope.

Nevertheless, the PAPAL ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is the Second Beast of Revelation 13, and it is HE who gives power to the FIRST BEAST - the European-based world government. When all the facts are out, and all the cards are on the table, we will be forced to realize that the Roman Catholic Church rules the world today.

And that is a pill that most people refuse to swallow.

But ready or not, every single one of us are going to have to swallow that pill.

As the Master of Mystery Babylon of Revelation 16-18, the Pope is the highest ranking evil man on earth. They call him "The Holy FATHER," an appellation that Almighty God explicitly reserved for Himself - in writing.

"And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven," Matthew 23:9. In fact, Jesus Himself is the rightful owner of that title, as it was ascribed to Him by the prophet Isaiah. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, THE EVERLASTING FATHER..." Isaiah 9:6. Jesus is the bodily incarnation of the Everlasting Father.

Pope Francis will revel in the world's attention for the next few days, and in the next few years, he will enjoy an explosion of power and influence among men and nations. And tragically, hundreds of millions of gullible, vulnerable, Biblically-ignorant "believers" will venerate him as the Vicar "stand-in" for Christ. But he is not Christ's stand-in. He is Satan's stand-in. And not long after the Pope has administered the long-prophesied Mark of the Beast - but too late to do anything about it - the world will realize that it has been sold into the inescapable damnation and torments of eternal fire and brimstone.

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six," Revelation 13:15-18.

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name," Revelation 14:9-11.

What the POPE said to Barack Obama

Pope Francis with President Obama
at the White House
On Wednesday morning, September 23, Pope Francis delivered a historic address on the White House lawn in Washington, D.C. President Barack Obama and the Pope exchanged messages with each other while the world looked on.

Several of the Pope's remarks are noteworthy in the light of Bible prophecy and the New World Order agenda.

"As the son of an immigrant family, I am happy to be a guest in this country, which was largely built by such families." The Pope wasted no time getting to the subject of immigration. The SECOND sentence. Certainly, his was an oblique - even faint - reference. But when you are the Pope of 1.2 billion Catholics, even an oblique reference can nail like a sledge hammer.

Nobody has more power or INFLUENCE over global migration patterns than the Roman Catholic Church. Via a network of more than 400,000 consecrated, celibate priests operating in about 2,800 Dioceses owning 177 MILLION ACRES of land around the world, the Roman Pontiff and his "church" have the ability to INFLUENCE virtually anybody anywhere to do anything or go anywhere.

The Roman Catholic Church is the largest non-governmental provider of education and health-care services in the world. It operates the largest non-governmental Parochial (private primary and secondary) school system in the world, and controls more than 600 Jesuit-run colleges, and 180 Jesuit-run universities around the world. That translates into staggering, unimaginable INFLUENCE.

The R.C.C. profoundly INFLUENCES kings, presidents, prime ministers and every other kind of head-of-state via its Papal Nuncios (Ambassadors) and Papal Nunciatures (Embassies) in almost every nation on earth, with the exception of about two dozen hardcore Islamic or Communist countries. And we must not forget that the Vatican holds Permanent Observer Status at the United Nations with one Nuncio in New York and another Nuncio in Geneva, and those Nuncios are Titular Bishops of the R.C.C. As of this week, the Vatican flag now flies at the U.N. Headquarters. And I have not yet mentioned that Rome has forty-jillion well-staffed N.G.O.s (Non-Governmental Organizations) working feverishly, if not stealthily inside the U.N. (as well as the U.S. Government, and most other governments around the world). Those countless N.G.O.s are obsessed with having maximum and profound Catholic influence on every conceivable international, national, state, and local policy and matter.

I am talking about INFLUENCE; INFLUENCE on IMMIGRATION in particular.

It is utterly foolish, even inconceivable, and dangerously naive, to pretend that Rome has had no MAJOR role in the FLOODING of American soil with millions and millions of Mexican immigrants. Roman Catholic Mexicans comprise an increasingly ENORMOUS power base to vote for Roman Catholic agendas, and give voice and legs to Roman Catholic causes in America. Immigration, as we are now witnessing, is as much as anything else, the Catholicization of the United States. Mexico is home to the second largest Catholic population in the world. (Brazil holds first place.) 

So, it should come as no surprise that the first thing out of the Pope's mouth in the presence of the President of the United States was the veneration of immigration, since the hotly-debated immigration crisis in America has the potential of teetering Roman Catholic influence in America FAR to the better, or FAR to the worse. It pays big dividends for the Pope to plead in favor of immigration.

Roman Catholic Mexicans will eventually become a very large component of Roman Catholic influence in the United States. Don't kid yourself. The Pope had a very clear and deliberate motive for painting a pro-immigration point-of-view in his opening statement at the White House.

The Pope said, "I will also travel to Philadelphia for the Eighth World Meeting of Families, to celebrate and support the institutions of marriage and the family at this, a critical moment in the history of our civilization." Keywords: families, institution of marriage.

What was he saying? In a phrase? "I support marriage and family." Keep in mind that this speech was less than ten minutes long. 1,072 words. There was no time for long lecturing or any elaboration. But to "celebrate and support" marriage and family is nevertheless purely non-committal, in light of the fact that he had only days earlier radically softened long-standing Catholic policies governing marriage annulments and divorces, encouraged absolving the sins of those who had abortions, and making conciliation toward gays. And in this very speech, he tackles the hot potato of...

"American Catholics are committed to building a society which is truly tolerant and inclusive, to safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of unjust discrimination." While claiming to support marriage and family, the Pope is presently tearing down walls between traditional, historical definitions of marriage, and gay-lesbian-bisexual-transvestite lifestyles. TOLERANCE. INCLUSION.

Again, the Pope is obliquely redefining near-eternal standards for sexuality and morality. But why should we be surprised? The Roman Catholic clergy is world-renowned for sexual perversions, pedophilia, homosexuality among priests, and lesbianism among nuns. Why should we be surprised when sexual morality is sacrificed on the altar of tolerance and inclusion?

"...they are likewise concerned that efforts to build a just and wisely ordered society respect their deepest concerns and their right to religious liberty. That freedom remains one of America’s most precious possessions. And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it."

The Catholic Church is a champion for religious freedom, but not exactly how you might expect. Ever since Archbishop John Carrol played an epic role in the founding of the United States of America, and also in the founding of Georgetown University (a Jesuit institution) in Washington D.C. in 1789, Roman Catholics have been obsessed with Catholicizing America. But in 1700 years of Catholic history around the world, they were not so tolerant of other religions that disagreed with or opposed Rome. Ask the nearly 100 million innocent victims of Catholic atrocities during the Inquisitions, Crusades, and various other actions against non-Catholic and anti-Catholic populaces who were hated, ostracized, tortured, imprisoned, mutilated, and mercilessly murdered by blood-thirsty popes, cardinals, archbishops, bishops and their operatives. So much for religious freedom.

Pope Francis told President Obama, "I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing air pollution. Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation. When it comes to the care of our “common home," we are living at a critical moment of history. We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about “a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change. ...we wish to commit ourselves to the conscious and responsible care of our common home."

It came as no surprise. All the pundits and commentators predicted that the Pope would plea for "climate change." But it is NOT the climate the Pope is worried about.

In 1954, JESUIT priest Joseph Retinger, and a former Nazi SS officer and Knight of Malta, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands founded a secretive group of powerful and elite global leaders who came to be called, "The Bilderbergers” (named after the hotel in Oosterbeek, Netherlands, where they first met). They have continued highly-secretive annual meetings to this day. The same Retinger is also called the founder of the European Movement which led to the founding of the European Union. He was commonly known to be a liaison between the Pope and the Superior General of the Jesuits. Anyone who studies the New World Order can tell you that Bilderbergers are supremely powerful king-makers and globalist change agents. Author Daniel Estulin spent fourteen years investigating Bilderberg, and concluded that it is “a shadow world government.” “They threaten to take away our right to direct our own destinies."

High on the list of world-changing priorities adopted by the "Bilderbergers," and forwarded by such powerful elites as Mikhail Gorbacheve and (U.N. operative) Maurice Strong at the United Nations "Earth Summit" at Rio de Janeiro in 1992, is what is called the Earth Charter, and Agenda 21. At that has to do with equalizing the nations and redistributing the wealth. And that is known as...

JESUITS of the Roman Catholic Church have played principal, if not leading roles in the creation of virtually all these goals that ultimately force a global socialist redistribution of wealth. Catholics slyly call it "Liberation Theology," and its popularity among Catholic priests is pervasive.  

I don't have time or space to treat this subject here, but suffice it to say that Agenda 21 has now been upgraded at the U.N. to the 2030 Agenda, and it is all about SOCIALISM. And V.I. Lenin infamously said, "All socialism leads to communism."

In 1969, Peruvian Dominican Priest Gustavo Gutierrez coined the term, “Liberation Theology.” In 1971, he wrote A Theology of Liberation, a watershed treatise which ignited the love affair between Catholic Jesuits and Marxist Communism.

By 1979, a cadre of Marxist Jesuits took up arms in Latin America, and began depicting Jesus Christ Himself as a Marxist Revolutionary. An epic conflict unfolded as Marxist Catholic Jesuit “Sandinistas” declared war on the government of Nicaragua, and established a socialist revolutionary government in its place. Under President Ronald Reagan, Marine Colonel Oliver North infamously waged a counter-revolution, but his “Contras” failed to stop the Sandinistas. As I write this, more than thirty years later, Daniel Ortega, the Sandinista champion, is still in power as the President of Nicaragua.

The Catholic versions of Socialism and Communism are now spreading globally like wildfire in a windstorm. Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu spawned left-wing revolutions in Africa, as Jesuit Liberation Theologians of the Roman Catholic Church spread their “Christian” version of Socialism throughout Central and South Americas, and ultimately into every nation and continent where the Catholic Church has beachheads.

The shocking, hard-to-swallow fact is that Jesuits of the Roman Catholic Church, in espousing their Liberation Theology, are the WORLD’S CHAMPIONS of Communist expansionism. KGB agents from Moscow are not the major proponents of Communism! JESUITS are!

I remind you that Pope Francis (a.k.a. Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina) is a life-long Jesuit. As such, he is a master of all Jesuit agendas. And Bergoglio was personally endeared to Liberation Theology priest and creator, Gustavo Gutierrez. One of Francis' first notable invitations to the Vatican following his election was to have Gustavo Gutierrez visit him there. Immediately thereafter, Gutierrez was widely acclaimed and his teachings widely espoused and published throughout the Catholic world.

And don't forget that ON HIS WAY TO AMERICA, the Pope spent DAYS in Cuba where he met privately with legendary Communist revolutionary, Fidel Castro, and his brother, President Raul Castro. In Cuba, Francis adeptly engaged his socialist "brothers" in his Catholic agenda.

Therefore, when at the White House Wednesday, Pope Francis' short message was long on implications. Profound implications.

The Pope said, "I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children."

The Pope was subtly, and cryptically calling the world to embrace and implement Socialism.

"Christian" gooses laying golden eggs

In pursuit of more golden eggs.
Oneness Apostolic Pentecostals are turning en masse to non-Apostolics for advice and leadership on how to build bigger and better churches. They think they have found the goose that lays golden eggs. They are growing faster than ever, and without all the old constraints of doctrines and holiness. But in their greed, money-lust, and vain pursuit of "MORE!", they have actually killed the goose, and as time goes by, TRUE RICHES - the eternal wealth of right-standing with God, Truth, Righteousness, and Holiness have been forever lost, sacrificed to a highly animated, yet godless imposter of the New Testament Church.

Church in the Kettle
There is another allegory that is also appropriate: The frog in the kettle. Hell has enticed the modern church like a frog into a kettle, and has turned on the heat. But because they have become cold-blooded, as Hell's fires lap around them, they are not even aware of it, adapting perfectly and comfortably to every deadly change, never even sensing that spiritual death is already underway.

"This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart, Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness," Ephesians 4:17-19.

"Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, ...and I am profaned among them," Ezekiel 22:26.

"Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth," Deuteronomy 6:14-15.

"And ye shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; ye shall throw down their altars: but ye have not obeyed my voice: why have ye done this?" Judges 2:2.

The POPE and the MAN OF SIN

Most prophecy pundits fail to understand exactly what the Bible says about the coming ANTICHRIST. Many people call the POPE the Antichrist. Some people refer to the FIRST BEAST of Revelation 13 as the Antichrist. And many apply "The Antichrist" to the Man of Sin (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4), the Son of Perdition, the Little Horn, the King of the North, "that wicked one," and other titles. 

There is a MAJOR, MAJOR problem in identifying "the Antichrist" while confusing these THREE DIFFERENT characters. 

1. The Beast (a European-based, 10-horned, world government of the last days)
2. The False Prophet (the Papal Roman Catholic Church, based in Rome)
3. The Assyrian Man of Sin (based in Jerusalem, committing the Abomination of Desolation).

The Bible NEVER ONCE calls any particular character "THE ANTICHRIST." That phrase never once appears in the Bible. In fact, ALL THREE of these characters are very much ANTICHRISTS.

The BEAST and the FALSE PROPHET will rule the world at the time of Jesus' return. The MAN OF SIN will play a pivotal role IN ISRAEL - but he will NOT be a world ruler. The role of the Man of Sin is to commit the Abomination of Desolation in the Third Temple on the Holy Mount in Jerusalem. See: Daniel Chapter 11 - Where the Man of Sin will come from


It is ENORMOUSLY significant that the POPE of the Roman Catholic Church is making OVERTURES to the most powerful Islamic figures in the world today. Pay close attention:
Pope with Mufti in the Blue Mosque
in Istanbul. He prayed toward Mecca.
In December, 2014, Pope Francis attended the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, one of the world's largest Islamic mosques. Accompanied by the powerful Muslim Mufti, who quoted verses from the Koran to him, the pope removed his shoes and spent two minutes in prayer facing Mecca, home of Islam and the so-called "Prophet" Muhammad.

Francis followed the example of Pope Benedict XVI who did the same thing in November, 2006. What's the deal? WHY are the POPES of the Roman Catholic Church praying toward MECCA?????

Let's start with the fact that the Roman Catholic Church is the GREAT WHORE of Revelation 16-18. She fornicates with all the kings and great men of the earth (Revelation 17:2-4; 18:3-9). She is the Mother of Abominations in the earth (17:5). Obviously, the Popes feel their need to fornicate with Islam in order to appease them - to ameliorate the relationship between Islam and Catholicism.

Pope Francis with Turkish President
Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Dec. 2014

Francis' first order of business on his visit to Ankara and Istanbul was to meet with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and express his solidarity with Islam. He said, “Fanaticism and fundamentalism, as well as irrational fears which foster misunderstanding and discrimination, need to be countered by the solidarity of all believers.”

At the Blue Mosque, Francis said, "It is essential that all citizens – Muslim, Jewish and Christian – both in the provision and practice of the law, enjoy the same rights and respect the same duties... They will then find it easier to see each other AS BROTHERS AND SISTERS who are travelling THE SAME PATH," (emphasis mine). Lest we forget - ISLAM is NOT traveling the same path as either Jews or Christians. Jews and Christians are descendants of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob. Islam claims its roots in ISHMAEL. God said, "In ISAAC shall thy seed be called," Genesis 21:21.

The PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE of Francis' endeavors is potentially breath-taking. The scriptures clearly teaches than an ASSYRIAN MAN OF SIN will stand in the Temple Mount some day soon, and he will eventually be crushed by Jesus Christ when He comes (Isaiah 14:24-27, 2 Thessalonians 2:3-5.

I believe that the Roman Catholic Church will finally install the Assyrian Man of Sin in Jerusalem as a Catholic-compliant Muslim, there to rule Jerusalem in behalf of the international community. Is it possible that someone like Erdogan might be the Pope's choice?? Don't forget what I have said. Whether of not it is Erdogan, there WILL be an Assyrian (from the region of Turkey, Syrian, Iran) on the Temple Mount soon.
