joel-victoria-osteen

 

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them.” (Romans 16:17)

If by chance you might have missed the little bit of news which was the talk around most church water coolers last week concerning Victoria Osteen and her comments about going to church, prayer and worship, then allow me to recap what you might have missed. 2 weeks ago, Victoria Osteen stated to a packed stadium that, ““Realize that when we obey God, we’re not doing it for God… we’re doing it for ourselves. Do good for your own self. Do it because God wants you to be happy. When you come to church, when you worship Him, you’re not doing it for God, really — you’re doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy. Amen? (source)

The video of her comments then went viral, and with most comments made by public figures, hers was ammunition for many who keep a careful eye on both Joel as well as Victoria. A spiritual tsunami then began to build, one which many did not see coming, especially the Osteen’s, who, by many people’s amazement, stood by the comment. Even with Victoria re-enforcing her view that she was right and everyone else needs to just “shut up” and move along (if that were even be possible).

Almost over night, the internet was lit up like Baghdad on bomb night. Bloggers were blogging, Twitter was tweeting and Facebook was..well, you get the idea. Social media was alive all over one woman’s comment about praise and worship and why Christians go to church. Then the media circus got in on the act as well, with many questioning whether or not the Osteen’s really believe what they preach? Others, like popular Christian singer Carman Licciardello and Phil Munsey (TBN) immediately came to the Osteen’s defense, even suggesting that those who were speaking out against the Osteen’s were doing the “Devil’s work” by cutting down another brother in the faith. Yet all of this begs the question, have the Osteen’s been judged unfairly?

Good theology edifies, bad theology is a nightmare. Having said that, what does the word say as it regards to examining the teachings of those who call themselves pastor? 1 John 4:1 states, “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.

We are called to judge righteously, examine every word which is spoken by those who claim they come in the name of Christ, why? Because many wolves, led by a spirit of deception, have and are, slipping within the church in these last days, promoting things or saying this which they ought not. Such is the case concerning the Osteen’s. The truth is, although what Victoria Osteen stated was wrong and was based on a gospel of self, the judgments many have begun to expose concerning both her and her husband is just and good, for it is symptomatic of a greater problem that I believe is occurring within the body of Christ – Biblical illiteracy.

If the church, the body of Christ were learned in the word like they should, then people like Joel and Victoria Osteen would be challenged by many against their false teachings. They would not be given a spiritual “pass” by so many within the church today, but rather, they would be held accountable for their actions behind the pulpit. Such though is not the case. But are we judging the Osteen’s unfairly? I don’t believe so, and here’s why – they operate in deceit.

Now I know that seems harsh, after all, Joel is not only popular, he’s considered America’s “pastor”. His likability is off the chart as he smooths the 30,000+ seat stadiums wherever he goes. The problem is, Joel is not a Biblical pastor by any means, he’s a motivational speaker and nothing more. The word of God gives us the mandate of a true and genuine pastor that has the calling of God on their life in 2 Timothy 4:1-4 “I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.

The apostle Paul makes it clear the demands of a pastor, he is to reprove, rebuke, exhort in all he does as a spiritual leader and man of God. The fact remains, not only does Joel fail in this area, he fails in every other area as well. Joel’s unwillingness to call homosexuality a sin, his repeated failure to oppose the teachings and beliefs of Oprah Winfrey, his assertion which says those in others religions, such as Mormonism, Hinduism (not to mention Joel’s praise of Pope Francis and the Roman Catholic Church) can still be saved, are indicators that Mr. Osteen fails in his duty as Pastor under the Biblical mandate given by the apostle Paul to Timothy. So, are the judgments against the Osteen’s too harsh? I don’t believe so, they actually fit.

The truth is, Joel and Victoria Osteen are a product of their own creation, another gospel. They have been placed into a position which clearly they are not qualified to be in, and in turn, they have brought upon themselves the righteous judgment by many within the body of Christ, who have weighed their beliefs and teachings against the word of God and found them to be antichrist, in error. They have weighed and been found wanting. Such is the case with all who come preaching another gospel – they are accursed. (Galatians 1:8)

end times

I’m going to give you (the reader) a prophetic word (a prophecy) concerning the last days, to be more precise, exactly when we should be looking for the second coming of Jesus Christ. The word God spoke to me came three times, three specific utterances which the Lord spoke into my spirit to give me understanding in the supernatural realm that we might better understand exactly where we are on God’s prophetic time table. Understand, we are in fact in the last days, no question about it, what the world is witnessing, not to mention the church, as it pertains to the level of violence, perversion, wars, greed, corruption, not to mention the level of spiritual deception at such a high degree, are all indicators we are near the end of the age. Yet are there specific signs we can look for to give us a clue as to what time we’re in that would reveal if we are near to the day of the Lord and his coming? Yes, there is.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4, the apostle Paul gave us, the church, a clue as it regards to the “end” of time, and more precise, the final events which will bring about the second coming. Read what Paul states, “Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” Notice a few things here as to what Paul was saying. The first was deception. There were many during Paul’s day who were stating that the resurrection and the coming of Christ had already occurred, Paul was refuting this message by actually speaking as a prophet by giving a literal prophecy of the future, not during his time on earth, for Paul already knew he was going to die by Nero. So Paul clearly understood through the gift of prophecy that first there would be deception not just in his day, but in ours as well.

The second thing is something Paul was giving us to pay attention to as to the season in which we would know we were at the end of the age where not only would the antichrist would be revealed, but equally so, the second coming of the Lord would occur. This is two-fold, 1. A rebellion against truth (the gospel) and 2. The man of sin is revealed to all (the church). What Paul was saying here in this particular verse is giving us another sign (actually two), that there would come a day where people would literally rebel from traditional Christianity, that the gospel of Jesus Christ and him crucified would no longer be accepted in our world. It’s hard to imagine comprehending such rebellion, but the word clearly tells us that at some point people simply will not either hear the gospel and reject it, nor will they believe it. 2. The man of sin (antichrist) would be revealed. It is here we finally understand that Paul is telling us two major points, the gospel will be restricted on the earth and at some point the one who is called the man of “sin” will be revealed. Yet it is in verse 4 that we have a more complete context to what Paul is saying, how we will know that this is the sign – the temple.

Many times, either through tradition or by ignorance, many keep to their beliefs not willing to change their position when it comes to the series of events which will occur in the last days that give us clues to tell us where we are at to the soon return of Jesus Christ. The truth is, if we study the scriptures, and allow the spirit of God to lead us as well as direct us in our learning, he will in fact give us spiritual as well as prophetic insight to show us how close we are to that coming day. Paul gives us the hidden clue that many overlook – “God’s temple“.

In Isaiah 2:2 we have the prophet Isaiah giving us the foundation by which the apostle Paul echoes when Isaiah states that, “In the last days, the mountain of the LORD’s house will be the highest of all–the most important place on earth. It will be raised above the other hills, and people from all over the world will stream there to worship.    The prophet Isaiah is speaking about a future time in our day at some particular point in the near future, the third temple will be built. This coincides with the other prophets who have stated that in the period known as the last days, a third temple will be built, and out of that temple shall come the man of sin who, as stated by Paul, will go in and declare himself God. Yet in what Paul has spoken in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 is clear, the hidden sign that we, the church, is to look for that would tell us how close we are is in fact the third temple.

Which leads me to something the Lord spoke prophetically into my spirit one particular day when he revealed something which had always been in the word, here is that prophetic word God gave me, “When you see the construction of the temple being built, know that my coming is near.”

I contend that the second coming or the “rapture” cannot occur, nor will occur, until the third temple is finished, it is during this prophetic season that we will begin to see the beginning of the end as it relates to the coming of the Lord. Some would cite Matthew 24:36 where Jesus cites that no man might know the day or hour, however, it must be read in its proper context. Jesus was not saying that the church will not know the closeness nor the time frame he would return, he was saying that the actual “day” and the actual “hour” is known only to the Father, however, we will know the signs of his return. Actually, when we read the word as it should, we will understand that God’s people will not find itself surprised by the Lord’s coming – “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober” (1 Thess.5:1-6)

Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, the savior of the world will not come as a thief to the church, it’s impossible for that to happen. Why? Because Paul said it himself in the above verse, “But ye, brethren, are NOT in darkness, that THAT day [the rapture] should overtake you as a thief.” Paul gave us the truth, that when we see all of the final signs  culminate to one final event, especially the third temple restored, then the church needs to understand that the second coming, the removal of the church is near, yes, even at the door. Please do not be confused by teachers who cling to men’s logic or traditional teachings, but instead stick to the word of God, not twisted by commentaries, or opinions, but by the spirit of prophecy revealed through his prophets.

The second coming of the Lord, the rapture, the antichrist, the final “signs” pointing to the end will be known to all when we who are alive in this last generation see the re-building of the last and final temple in Israel. That is the word the Lord has given me to you as his prophet.

sin

 

 

There was a time in our world that people, at some level of personal beliefs knew right from wrong. It didn’t matter who they were, most people throughout our world knew some degree of moral principles. Even in early Americana, people had some level of light in matters regarding right and wrong. We see that truth in the 1920‘s, when Congress passed a bill that passed the House, that would and did, make alcohol illegal to consume in the nation. Sadly though, this good meaning attempt to legislate morality took a backseat to crime and social pressure for a more pleasurable life.

As the years continued toward our current time, people had become more intolerant to truth, especially by those who voiced a Christian belief. It seems like today, more and more people are more intolerant to the preaching of sin, or wrong doing than ever before. The sad truth to this fact is due to two things, a more progressive idea of individualism backed by self righteous behavior and the lack of pastors who no longer preach against sin.

We see this evident today by simply turning on the television, or simply walking into many of the vast established churches across this country. Recently, on the Piers Morgan show (a continuance of Larry King) a young and very popular pastor (Joel Osteen) commented on the fact that never would he condemn or even preach against a certain individual or lifestyle. And while this young man’s books and stadium filled gatherings out pace most well known writers and pop stars, the truth is, he’s simply another example of the failure of pastors who no longer desire not want to preach about sin or the consequences of sin.

Most pastors will tell you that they are simply preaching what the people desires, and in some respects I believe them. The word says in 2 Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

There is a serious lacking in the pulpits of America to preach or say anything negative concerning sin or sinful behaviors. Pastors today, in most churches, won’t even challenge those within their own body of believers out of fear they will lose them forever. What they really are saying, hidden behind their words, is the fear that they will lose money from these individuals.

The sad truth is, many pastors today are motivated NOT to preach against sin due to the economics of it. Bottom line, it doesn’t pay to preach against sin.

Our pulpits are filled with psycho babble, humanistic teaching series that are not founded on the word but on man made solutions to human problems. The truth is, the only solution to the alcoholic, the prostitute, the adulterer, the molester, the liar is the cross and the preaching of the cross. But sadly, many have taken a more tolerable form of so called “preaching” and it’s affect on the lives of countless thousands is being felt far and wide.

Our society today is riddled with violence. The family unit is under attack by those caught up into adultery, fornication, deception. Divorce now has reached nearly 65% in the secular world,and those who are evangelical believers are nearing 55%, if not higher. The fact is, the impact of pastors succumbing to society pressures to preach something tolerable is being pursued rather than the traditional form of Christianity and that is, sin separates one from God and only a desire to live right and holy, will one expect to make it in the end.

As more and more churches seek a more favorable, social acceptance in their community and a desire to be seen as “relevant” in the eyes of the world, we are giving up the most basic teaching of the gospel – that we are called to bring correction to the people and to preach that sin is a spiritual disease. Until the church and it’s leadership returns back to the old fashioned preaching of the gospel and calling sin what it is – a corruptible state which will lead to damnation, then the church will never be truly affective in our world and countless souls will pay the ultimate price for our desire to be relevant to a lost and dying world.

spectre_of_jihad

 

 

There is a war coming. The last war. The last Jihad.

When President Obama told the world that America was a friend to Muslims around the world in his first television address to the nation, he not only was telling the Muslim world why he was not like his predecessor (then President George W. Bush), Obama wanted to be different, and to make his point, he has done everything in his power to limit his hands becoming stained with blood of those in whom he desires to appease – Islam.

Now we’re coming to a series of events that seem to indicate something is stirring in the supernatural realm where events are moving at such rapid pace, that it’s almost near impossible to keep up with them as they happen. Russia signing a deal with Iran (source).  ISIS gaining in size and numbers (source). 10 Kings signing a pact to form a confederacy of Islamic nations to deal with ISIS (source).

Jesus referred it this way, Matthew 24:7-8 (NASB) “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.”

The events that are occurring right now in the middle east, with ISIS, Iran, Hamas and Israel, are a precursor to the bigger event that is about to unfold – the last Jihad. The word Jihad means “ A holy war waged on behalf of Islam as a religious duty.” Islam is bracing itself to move upon the world much like what Hitler tried to do in the late 1930’s, to bring about a Caliphate (an Islamic state) across the world. ISIS declares that it’s intention is to overrun the Islamic world, then march its army into India, Indonesia, China and then up into Europe. The problem is, God has appointed a time and season where his will shall be done – not ISIS. Ezekiel prophesied of a great coming world war (Ezekiel 38-39) in which the nations which are Islamic, will gather together, along with Russia, and move across the land toward one place – Jerusalem. Are we now seeing this beginning to occur? I believe so.

Prophecy is literally being fulfilled right before our eyes, and those prophesies are pointing us to one epic battle before the marks of the tribulation ever begin – the destruction of Islam. Many are under the impression which says Islam is the religion of war which will move across the world, yet that’s not God’s plan. Jesus said it himself in Matthew 24:14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached unto the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then shall the end come.” What end? The end of time, the end of the church age.

But until then, the world must go through a series of events which will shape and prepare it for what is coming – the final kingdom. The beast kingdom. Daniel as well as John saw a beast rise out of the sea representing the last great and terrible kingdom which will produce the last world emperor – the antichrist. We are already seeing his handiwork in the form of what is currently being played out almost daily. Perversion, immorality, violence, greed, false signs and wonders, not to mention false teachers and false prophets. The spirit of antichrist is already at work. Yet what is coming will be nothing short of pure evil.

Already the world is bracing for the last, great world war. Russia is returning back to her old ways, along with China, who is expanding her reach into new territories (source).  The facts are, the world is never been in such a state of chaos as it is currently. And ISIS is the key. With Scotland tipping the scales of the UK, radical Islamist’s being arrested in Australia who were planning on beheading individuals in public, the world is once again finding itself on the verge of such global terror it has not seen since the pre-years just prior to WW2, when the Nazi’s goosestepped across eastern Europe. ISIS is taking its cues from the past and threatening to go into Syria, Iran, Jordan, India, all of Iraq and eventually China. Not to mention Isis threatening Israel. (source)

What will come out of this will be Islam’s greatest defeat as she marches toward Israel. Out of this will come a season of peace, a time where the gospel will be preached into those nations which need to hear the gospel, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, where the gospel is strictly forbidden. The gospel of Jesus Christ will finally be preached to those who will hear, and out of this shall come a great harvest of souls. This will be the final wave of evangelism just prior the Lord’s return, but even more, this will be a precursor to the rise of the beast kingdom.

Islam is a pebble in the shoe of a global world Government, not to mention world religion. Islam rejects anything which would not submit to her demands, this includes the Vatican. However, while Satan has used Islam to hinder the gospel being preached in many middle-eastern nations currently, his grip is about to be broken. For out of this great war, will bring about it a peace, but for a season, then the darkness will sweep the world for one massive deception to come. Until then, let us preach, plan and prepare for the greatest harvest the church has ever seen or known.

muhammad1

 

And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.” (Luke 21:8)

 

There is no question, things in our world are far, far worse now than they were just 35 years ago – especially with Islam. The middle east, the state of the world, is now all focused on what is happening not only in Iraq with ISIS, but also with Iran as well as Syria. Yet Israel still remains the #1 trouble hot spot in the world today. It’s like the world is waiting with anticipation what will be the final trigger to another global war. Yes, war. Yet it all comes back to two factions, America and Islam. Will it be the United States who will eventually lead the world into one final and global effort to rid the world of religious extremism? Or will the world have to endure another decade of terrorist attacks across the globe that does not kneel to Allah or his prophet – Muhammad? Personally, I don’t believe another decade will occur before the nations have had enough and begin the process of removing the Islamic pebble from the world’s shoe so that the final world peace and prosperity can begin, which will lead mankind to not only a global Government, but a world established religion.

It was recently that Israeli President Shimon Peres met with Pope Francis to discuss creating an U.N.-style “Organisation of United Religions” to combat violence in God’s name. (source)  So not only are things being established to deal with Islam, but also to build a global foundation of the world’s powerful religions to unify for one purpose, Ecumenism – a world religion.

So why are the world’s leaders, such as President Obama, Israeli President Peres, and many within the world’s religions all being drawn to the Roman Catholic Church and Islam? Because I believe, as I will point out within this article, that it was the Catholic Church which gave birth to Islam.

Long before the Crusades, the Vatican secretly negotiated and financed Mohammed (through a Roman Catholic relative), to help them annihilate the Jews, but when the Islamic forces captured Jerusalem in the name of the prophet Mohammed. The Pope was blocked from moving the Vatican there because Mohammed turned around and called the Pope and the Jews, infidels.

The ultimate goal of the Roman Catholic church is to get control of the Holy city of Jerusalem. The Vatican helped to finance the three Islam armies of old, in exchange for three favors: One was to eliminate the Jews and Bible Believers. One was to protect the Augustinian monks and the Roman Catholics, and the last reason was the most important; to conquer Jerusalem for the Pope. The Muslim army conquered Jerusalem, but refused to co-operate with the Vatican. This started the hatred between the two heathen religions, but because of their shady past, this was never made public knowledge. Muslims went on to conquer the world in the name of their god “Allah”, while the Catholics went on to conquer the world in the name of Mary. Both factions (religions) played an essential part in the creation of the “prophet” Muhammad. (source)

The following account is by former Jesuit Priest – Alberto Rivera (Rivera was assassinated in 1997):

Roman Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third century. Because of its religious history and its strategic location, the Holy City was considered a priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed to make Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city. The great untapped source of manpower that could do this job was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell victim to one of the most clever plans ever devised by the Powers of Darkness. Early Christians went everywhere with the gospel, setting up small churches, but they met heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman government persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their spread. But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 A.D. Roman armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and destroyed the great Jewish temple which was the heart of Jewish worship – in fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy in Matthew 24:2.

On this holy place, where the temple once stood, the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands today as Islam’s second most holy place. Sweeping changes were in the wind. Corruption, apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion, and rebellion were eating at the Roman Empire, and it was ready to collapse. The persecution against Christians was useless, as they continued to lay down their lives for the gospel of Christ. The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create a counterfeit “Christian” religion to destroy the work of God. The solution was in Rome. Their religion had come from ancient Babylon, and all it needed was a face-lift. This didn’t happen overnight, but began in the writings of the “early church fathers”. It was through their writings that a new religion would take shape. The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually called St. Peter, and the statue of Venus was changed to the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for its headquarters was on one of the seven hills called “Vaticanus” – the place of diving serpent where the satanic Temple of Janus stood.


The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism, called “Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth” (Revelation 17:5). She was raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the believers in Christ, establish religions, create wars, and make the nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as we will see. Three major religions have one thing in common – each has a holy place where they look for guidance. Roman Catholicism looks to the Vatican as the Holy City. The Jews look to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and the Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each group believes that they receive certain types of blessings for the rest of their lives for visiting their holy place. In the beginning, Arab visitors would bring gifts to the “House of God” and the keepers of the Kaaba were gracious to all who came. Some brought their idols and, not wanting to offend these people, their idols were placed inside the sanctuary. It is said that the Jews looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle of the Lord, with veneration until it became polluted with idols.

In a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam) the treasure of the Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given were dumped down the well and it was filled with sand; it disappeared. Many years later Adb al-Muttalib was given visions telling him where to find the well and its treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad. Before this time, Augustine became the bishop of North Africa and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism, including whole tribes. It was among these Arab converts to Catholicism that the concept of looking for an Arab prophet developed. Muhammad’s father died from illness, and sons born to great Arab families in places like Mecca were sent into the desert to be suckled and weaned and spend some of their childhood with Bedouin tribes for training and to avoid the plagues in the cities. After his mother and grandfather also died, Muhammad was with his uncle when a Roman Catholic monk learned of his identity and said:

“Take your brother’s son back to his country and guard him against the Jews, for by God, if they see him and know of him that which I know, they will construe evil against him. Great things are in store for this brother’s son of yours.”

The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future Jewish persecutions at the hands of the followers of Muhammad.The Vatican desperately wanted Jerusalem because of its religious significance, but was blocked by the Jews.


Another problem was the true Christians in North Africa who preached the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in power, but would not tolerate opposition. Somehow the Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate both the Jews and the true Christian believers who refused to accept Roman Catholicism. Looking to North Africa, they saw the multitudes of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their dirty work. Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic, and could be used in reporting information to leaders in Rome. Others were used in an underground spy network to carry out Rome’s master plan to control the great multitudes of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When “St. Augustine” appeared on the scene, he knew what was going on. His monasteries served as bases to seek out and destroy Bible manuscripts owned by the true Christians. The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs, someone they could raise up as a great leader, a man with charisma whom they could train, and eventually unite all the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating a mighty army that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope.

In the Vatican briefing, Cardinal Bea told us this story:

A wealthy Arabian lady who was a faithful follower of the pope played a tremendous part in this drama. She was a widow named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the church and retired to a convent, but was given an assignment. She was to find a brilliant young man who could be used by the Vatican to create a new religion and become the messiah for the children of Ishmael. Khadijah had a cousin named Waraquah, who was also a very faithful Roman Catholic, and the Vatican placed him in a critical role as Muhammad’s advisor. He had tremendous influence on Muhammad. Teachers were sent to young Muhammad and he had intensive training. Muhammad studied the works of St. Augustine, which prepared him for his “great calling”. The Vatican had Catholic Arabs across North Africa spread the story of a great one who was about to rise up among the people and be the chosen one of their God. While Muhammad was being prepared, he was told that his enemies were the Jews and that the only true Christians were Roman Catholic. He was taught that others calling themselves Christians were actually wicked impostors and should be destroyed. Many Muslims believe this. Muhammad began receiving “divine revelations” and his wife’s Catholic cousin Waraquah helped interpret them. From this came the Koran. In the fifth year of Muhammad’s mission, persecution came against his followers because they refused to worship the idols in the Kaaba. Muhammad instructed some of them to flee to Abysinnia, where Negus, the Roman Catholic king, accepted them because Muhammad’s views on the virgin Mary were so close to Roman Catholic doctrine. These Muslims received protection from Catholic kings because of Muhammad’s revelations. Muhammad later conquered Mecca and the Kaaba was cleared of idols. History proves that before Islam came into existence, the Sabeans in Arabia worshiped the moon-god who was married to the sun-god. They gave birth to three goddesses, who were worshipped throughout the Arab world as “Daughters of Allah”. An idol excavated at Hazor in Palestine in the 1950s shows Allah sitting on a throne with the crescent moon on his chest. Muhammad claimed he had a vision from Allah and was told: “You are the messenger of Allah.” This began his career as a prophet and he received many messages. By the time Muhammad died, the religion of Islam was exploding. The nomadic Arab tribes were joining forces in the name of Allah and his prophet, Muhammad. Some of Muhammad’s writings were placed in the Koran, others were never published. They are now in the hands of high ranking holy men (Ayatollahs) in the Islamic faith.

When Cardinal Bea shared this information in the Vatican, he said:

“These writings are guarded because they contain information that links the Vatican to the creation of Islam.”

Both sides have so much information on each other that, if exposed, it could create such a scandal that it would be a disaster for both religions. In their “holy” book, the Koran, Christ is regarded as only a prophet. If the pope was his representative on Earth, then he also must be a prophet of God. This caused the followers of Muhammad to fear and respect the pope as another “holy man”. The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the Arab generals permission to invade and conquer the nations of North Africa.

 The Vatican helped to finance the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange for three favors:

  1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (the latter were regarded as true believers, which they called infidels)
  2. Protect the Augustinian monks and Roman Catholics
  3. Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness” in the Vatican

As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous. Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem fell into their hands. Roman Catholics were never attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time. But when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised at their denial! The Arab generals had such military success that they could not be intimidated by the pope – nothing could stand in the way of their own plan. Under Waraquah’s direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham offered Ishmael as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac was the sacrifice, but Muhammad removed Isaac’s name and inserted Ishmael’s name. As a result of this and Muhammad’s vision, the faithful Muslims built a mosque, the Dome of the Rock, in Ishmael’s honor, on the site of the Jewish temple that was destroyed in 70 A.D. This made Jerusalem the second most holy place in the Islamic faith. How could they give such a sacred shrine to the pope without causing a revolt? The pope realized what they had created was out of control when he heard they were calling “His Holiness” an infidel. The Muslim generals were determined to conquer the world for Allah, and now they turned toward Europe. Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked for papal bulls to give them permission to invade European countries. The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable. Temporal power and control of the world was considered the basic right of the pope. He wouldn’t think of sharing it with those whom he considered heathens.

The pope raised up his armies and called them “crusades” to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing Catholic Europe. The crusades lasted for centuries and Jerusalem slipped out of the pope’s hands. Turkey fell, and Spain and Portugal were invaded by Islamic forces. In Portugal, they called a mountain village “Fatima” in honor of Muhammad’s daughter, never dreaming it would become world famous. Years later, when the Muslim armies were poised on the islands of Sardinia and Corsica, to invade Italy, there was a serious problem. The Islamic generals realized they were too far extended. It was time for peace talks. One of the negotiators was Francis of Assisi. As a result, the Muslims were allowed to occupy Turkey in a “Christian” world, and the Catholics were allowed to occupy Lebanon in the Arab world. It was also agreed that the Muslims could build mosques in Catholic countries without interference, as long as Roman Catholicism could flourish in Arab countries.


Cardinal Bea told us in Vatican briefings that both the Muslims and Roman Catholics agreed to block and destroy the efforts of their common enemy: Bible-believing Christian missionaries. Through these concordats, Satan blocked the children of Ishmael from a knowledge of scripture and the truth. The Islamic community looks on the Bible-believing missionary as a devil who brings poison to the children of Allah. This explains years of ministry in those countries with little results. The Vatican also engineers a campaign of hatred between the Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before this, they had co-existed peacefully. A light control was kept on Muslims –  from the Ayatollah, down through the Islamic priests, nuns, and monks. The next plan was to control Islam. In 1910, Portugal was going Socialistic. Red flags were appearing and the Catholic Church was facing a major problem. Increasing numbers were against the Church. The Jesuits wanted Russia involved, and the location of this vision at Fatima could play a key part in pulling Islam to the Mother Church. In 1917, the Virgin appeared in Fatima. “The Mother of God” was a smashing success, playing to overflow crowds. As a result, the Socialists of Portugal suffered a major defeat. Roman Catholics worldwide began praying for the conversion of Russia, and the Jesuits invented the novenas to Fatima, which they could perform throughout North Africa, spreading good public relations to the Muslim world.

 

The Arabs thought they were honoring the daughter of Muhammad, which is what the Jesuits wanted them to believe. As a result of the vision of Fatima, Pope Pius XII ordered his Nazi army to crush Russia and the Orthodox religion, and make Russia Roman Catholic. A few years after he lost World War II, Pope Pius XII startled the world with his phony “dancing Sun” vision to keep Fatima in the news. It was great religious show biz and the world swallowed it. Not surprisingly, Pope Pius was the only one to see this vision. As a result, a group of followers has grown into a Blue Army worldwide, totaling millions of faithful Roman Catholics ready to die for the Blessed Virgin. But we haven’t seen anything yet. The Jesuits have their Virgin Mary scheduled to appear four or five times in China, Russia, and major appearance in the U.S. What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop Sheen’s statement:

“Our Lady’s appearances at Fatima marked the turning point in the history of the world’s 350 million Muslims. After the death of his daughter, Muhammad wrote that she ‘is the most holy of all women in Paradise, next to Mary.’

 He believed that the Virgin Mary chose to be known as Our Lady of Fatima as a sign and a pledge that the Muslims who believe in Christ’s virgin birth, will come to believe in his divinity.”

Bishop Sheen pointed out that the pilgrim virgin statues of Our Lady of Fatima were enthusiastically received by Muslims in Africa, India, and elsewhere, and that many Muslims are now coming into the Roman Catholic Church.  —–

 

There is no question that we are seeing the push for a global peace plan that will not just come with Israel, but with every other religions in the world, including Islam. What can we look forward to is anyone’s guess, but I do know this, at some point in the distant future, either this current Pope, or the one which will follow after him, will bring the world into some sort of spiritual darkness where all men will become deceived.

But you, Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, until the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. (Daniel 12:4)

No, APPLE incorporated out of Cupertino, California  is not the antichrist, nor was Steve Jobs designing the prototype for the coming mark of the beast. Nor is the latest IPhone 6 or the Apple watch the much prophesied 666 we’ve been warned about. However, what was announced from Apple Inc. is in fact a genuine step toward technology which is bringing mankind to a level that has truly not been seen since the days of Noah.

Now, some might question how I arrived at that revelation of Noah and technology, yet the truth is, if we study the word carefully, we will see and understand that at one point in the far distant past, humanity was not only ripe with evil and violence, but something else was occurring to which was bringing the world closer to judgment – a plague. Not a plague brought by disease, but of spiritual corruption. It was a time where angels, entrusted to guide men into the knowledge of God and his law, became enamoured with the daughters of men (Gen. 6:1-4) and from that one act of universal rebellion, contaminated the bloodline of men, save for only Noah and his family.

This corruption brought forth upon the earth a race of beings known as the giants – Nephilim. It was these beings which gave men forbidden knowledge which allowed men, whose hearts were wicked, to begin a process by which they developed technology and abilities far beyond their reasoning and understanding, and started a process whereby they corrupted the earth by trying to manipulate the DNA of early man (by Satan’s design) as Satan did on earth what he attempted to do in heaven, pollute God’s perfect design. Yet he failed, as God sent a universal flood upon the earth, stopping man’s unholy evolution to become a god.

Today, as we enter into the last days, we yet once again are seeing this same drive by men, attempting to do one thing and one thing only, perfection. Where Apple and Steve Jobs plays a part in all of this is simple, they are by mere design, tapping into an ideology whereby man might come to the place where he can live forever. It’s not about a phone that will help you make your shopping faster, or get the latest game online, nor is it about being able to post on Facebook more easily. The truth is, this has nothing to do with cyber-semantics, as it has more to do with bringing man closer to the edge of bio-genetic perfection whereby men, plagued by limited reasoning and functionality, will be able to literally become one with technology itself thus giving man what he has truly desired to attain since he lost the garden – immortality.

Apple boasts with its IPhone 6, that the consumer will not only never have to worry about carrying cash (as cash is almost reached the point where it’s become useless, although not worthless), but that the consumer, with this latest unveiling of technology, will use biometric ability that is now in this new phone’s technology, that by a mere thumbprint, the consumer literally has access to an entirely new world simply based on their genetic imprint. (source)

Again, if you truly, and honestly believe this is all about making our lives better with social media and online games, then you have truly become lost (deceived) by the rhetoric that is coming out of the scientific world of technological advancement. Yet this is prophecy being revealed right before our eyes as referenced in Daniel 12:4. The truth is, all of this technology is not by coincidence, far from it, it is by design and its origins are Satanic.

Satan has a plan and that plan is to bring men under his rule, and the one way he is attempting to do this is by luring mankind with the one thing he has desired most – eternal life. Man has always feared death. Out of all the great quests man has found himself seeking to conquer, it is the victory over death that has eluded him. So what does Satan offer? He offers a lie, which leads to a greater lie and a greater deception, which is that if men submit to him and him alone and not to the Son of God, he will grant them the key to what he desires most – eternal life. This is why man will find himself one day submitting himself to the god of this world through his offspring – the antichrist.

The word of God is clear, it is appointed for man once to die and then the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27) Men will never have eternal life without coming to the cross. Yet he continues to bring himself closer and closer into bondage that will one day bring all of humanity under the cruel rule of the man of sin himself, where he will rule with an iron fist, demanding all to worship him as God. It is this technology that we are seeing right now being unleashed upon the world that is deceiving millions and they don’t see it nor understand it.

Our world is racing toward judgment. Man is racing toward the throne of God where all of man will stand before God and be judged for what they did in this life. While we see these things unfolding, it is to the Christian that he recognizes the hour he is in and starts to preach the gospel to all who will hear, for as sure as Apple unveils to the world another step in our technological advancement, the spirit of antichrist is becoming more visible to the spiritual eye of those who can discern the hour in which we live. What Apple unveiled to the world is nothing compared to the evil plans Satan has waiting for the world in the very near future, yet the church has the greatest message that Satan cannot destroy, one that can not only give sinner man eternal life, but the one who gave his life so that we might live – Jesus Christ.

In this hour of technology and advancing science, let the church be about the Father’s business, preaching the gospel while there is still daylight, for the hour is soon approaching where darkness will fill the land and it will become harder to work under the power of darkness.

Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.” (Luke 10:19)

 

About 4 years ago, while in a tent revival, I was approached by a woman who was very distraught, actually she was overcome with great fear. As I listened to her explain her situation, I could tell she was in desperate need of help. She explained that her daughter and her family were plagued with a series of demonic attacks that were so bad that even their 8 month old baby was being physically assaulted. As she explained it, there were times where marks appeared on the baby, other times the crib where the child would lay, would move across the room while the parents were asleep (the child slept in the parents bedroom). It was clear to me the family needed deliverance.

The dear woman asked if I would come and rid their house of this evil. So I told them that yes, I would come and do what I could. How ironic that only a few nights before, God was dealing with me about casting down demonic strongholds, but I had no idea this would be my first real encounter with demonic activity within a house. I’ve experienced demonic activity before, from people being possessed, to spirits manifesting themselves before me, yet this was the first time I would have an encounter with such a force as a physical place where this stronghold was occurring.

That afternoon, I arrived at the house. It was a medium sized home, beautiful setting and from the outside, it looked as normal as any other in the area, on the outside you’d have a hard time even thinking that anything evil was going on. But looks are always deceiving. I and my associates arrived and met the family. It was a wonderful meeting. They were kind and humble people simply desiring a change and hoping God would move. We walked inside the house and at first I didn’t feel anything, but in my spirit I could hear God tell me one thing over and over, “Take authority in my name”. Even before we arrived at the house, the holy spirit was telling me to take authority. So as I was following the family into the main section of the house, I noticed that it seemed to feel somewhat darker, but nothing out of the ordinary – until we went into the bedroom.

The young father/husband led me and the others into the main area where the majority of events were taking place, it was a living room/bedroom area combination – with fireplace. But the moment I stepped into the main section is when it hit me. As soon as I walked into the room something literally gripped me, I could feel a pressure holding onto my chest, a heavy weight. My face, nose, sinus’ all of a sudden grew closed, something was literally trying to tell me I was NOT welcome and to leave, that is exactly how I felt in my spirit, it wanted me to leave. The smell, there was a distinct smell that had not been there as I could smell the foul stench as so did the others. It was clear, Satan had been given permission at some point in the past to use whomever had lived here previously to do unspeakable horrors.

The daughter began to relate to me how there were times her husband would suffer from extreme thoughts that seem to come from nowhere, as if he was being “possessed”. Voices could be heard speaking one to another as the demonic experiences would bring the couple into utter despair. From doors slamming shut, to windows opening and closing, the young couple would pray and trust the Lord for deliverance, even though it felt as though deliverance would not come. Yet what they battled most was how the demonic entities would target their 8 month old daughter.

In my spirit the Lord was revealing to me exactly what was happening. I was told that 3 demonic spirits were claiming right to the house and all who dwelt there and that they were to be cast out. The home, which was at that time recently purchased by this new couple, had been used for Satanic mass along with occult activities. Even sexual rites and perversion was occurring within this home as occult items as well as drug paraphernalia had been found, along with hundreds of porn items secretly stored in either the walls or under the carpet. It was a true house of perversion. So I began to tell them exactly what the Lord had revealed to me and quickly the mother told me that God had told her just a few days prior that it was 3 spirits, so God provided confirmation to what I was hearing was indeed correct.

We joined hands and we began to rebuke the spirits and demanded them to flee. At one point I could literally see the lamp move – by itself and quickly I demanded that they had no authority any longer and all I can say is, that within a moment, there was a release like I had never felt before. My sinus pressure, the heaviness in my chest was all gone. The enemy had to leave. After informing the young couple to anoint the house and to begin dedicating it to God, we departed and from all accounts, nothing more has been occurring. But it reminded me just how real the supernatural world is and how dangerous people can get into when they mess with the darkness.

We who are in Christ must never fear the enemy, for he has been defeated by Christ at the cross. The cross ends the power of Satan over our lives and because of the cross, Satan’s ability to harm us or cause us fear ends. Once we realize that we are more than overcomers through Jesus Christ, then more of the power of hell will fall at our feet. That is the authority Christ has given us, all because of the victory at the cross.
