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.

The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45)

The apostle Paul warned us that in the last days, there would arise teachers, speaking eloquent words, enticing many that have itching ears who would run to them, desiring their particular gospel they would teach and ultimately lead them astray. (2 Timothy 4:3)

There is no question that in these last hours we are seeing more and more, false teachers begin to give rise with all manner of false teachings in our world today, but even more so in the church. Yet, with all of these warnings the apostle Paul would give to the body of Christ about what would eventually come (and is here presently) still, there are many who would rebuke any strong warning about those whom have clearly shown by their own words, that they do not truly believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ and even worse, they reject much of the word itself that would call men to repentance. Such is the case of Joel Osteen.

I could write an entire book on what is wrong with Joel Osteen, and yet many would accuse me of falsely accusing a brother in the Lord. But would they be correct? Is Joel Osteen, the man who the world respects and listens to, a genuine man of God? Is he truly a preacher of the gospel? Or worse yet, is he nothing more than a wolf? A cleverly disguised servant of Satan, whose sole intention is to break the standards of the gospel in favor of preaching another gospel altogether?

The word of God warns us that ministers of Satan would look at act and even preach like genuine preachers, they would have the form of righteousness, but they would be masters of deception. (2 Corinthians 11:15)   The apostle Paul stated it like this as it regards false messengers, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:13)

So for the purpose of this article, instead of highlighting my opinion or belief about Osteen, I thought I’d allow Mr. Osteen to state his own beliefs for all to hear and understand, so that others may line up what he believes in with the word of God so that they can make their own decision about Joel Osteen. Every quote or statement mentioned in the following quotations are by Joel Osteen himself.

“We’re all about building people up. We’re all about helping people reach their full potential. We don’t push some kind of religion… all we push is joy and peace and victory through Jesus Christ. …Our message every single week -is through faith in God you can live an overcoming life of victory … I believe that’s the message this generation needs to hear. We’ve heard a lot about the judgment of God and what we can’t do and what’s going to keep us out of heaven. But it’s time people start hearing about the goodness of God, about a God that loves them. A God that believes in them. A God that wants to help them. That’s our message here at Lakewood.”

 

KING: How about issues that the church has feelings about? Abortion? Same-sex marriages?
OSTEEN: Yeah. You know what, Larry? I don’t go there. I just …
KING: You have thoughts, though.
OSTEEN: I have thoughts. I just, you know, I don’t think that a same-sex marriage is the way God intended it to be. I don’t think abortion is the best. I think there are other, you know, a better way to live your life. But I’m not going to condemn those people. I tell them all the time our church is open for everybody.

Larry appears surprised at Osteen’s waffling. Larry allows Osteen to clarify his confusing position. And again Osteen blatantly contradicts the words of the Lord Jesus Christ.

KING: You don’t call them sinners?

OSTEEN: I don’t.

KING: Is that a word you don’t use?

OSTEEN: I don’t use it. I never thought about it. But I probably don’t. But most people already know what they’re doing wrong. When I get them to church I want to tell them that you can change. There can be a difference in your life. So I don’t go down the road of condemning. — (interview with Larry King on June 20th, 2005)

 

KING: What if you’re Jewish or Muslim, you don’t accept Christ at all?
OSTEEN: You know, I’m very careful about saying who would and wouldn’t go to heaven. I don’t know ..

KING: If you believe you have to believe in Christ? They’re wrong, aren’t they?
OSTEEN: Well, I don’t know if I believe they’re wrong. I believe here’s what the Bible teaches and from the Christian faith this is what I believe. But I just think that only God will judge a person’s heart. I spent a lot of time in India with my father. I don’t know all about their religion. But I know they love God. And I don’t know. I’ve seen their sincerity. So I don’t know. I know for me, and what the Bible teaches, I want to have a relationship with Jesus.

CALLER: Hello, Larry. You’re the best, and thank you, Joe — Joel — for your positive messages and your book. I’m wondering, though, why you side-stepped Larry’s earlier question about how we get to heaven? The Bible clearly tells us that Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and the only way to the father is through him. That’s not really a message of condemnation but of truth.

OSTEEN: Yes, I would agree with her. I believe that. . .

KING: So then a Jew is not going to heaven?

OSTEEN: No. Here’s my thing, Larry, is I can’t judge somebody’s heart. You know? Only God can look at somebody’s heart, and so — I don’t know. To me, it’s not my business to say, you know, this one is or this one isn’t. I just say, here’s what the Bible teaches and I’m going to put my faith in Christ. And I just I think it’s wrong when you go around saying, you’re saying you’re not going, you’re not going, you’re not going, because it’s not exactly my way. I’m just…

KING: But you believe your way.

OSTEEN: I believe my way. I believe my way with all my heart.

KING: But for someone who doesn’t share it is wrong, isn’t he?

OSTEEN: Well, yes. Well, I don’t know if I look at it like that. I would present my way, but I’m just going to let God be the judge of that. I don’t know. I don’t know.

KING: So you make no judgment on anyone?

OSTEEN: No. But I…

And here Larry really tosses Joel a soft-ball. How about a God-defying atheist? And again, Osteen will not confess that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way of salvation.

KING: What about atheists?

OSTEEN: You know what, I’m going to let someone — I’m going to let God be the judge of who goes to heaven and hell. I just — again, I present the truth, and I say it every week. You know, I believe it’s a relationship with Jesus. But you know what? I’m not going to go around telling everybody else if they don’t want to believe that that’s going to be their choice. God’s got to look at your own heart. God’s got to look at your heart, and only God knows that.

 

“I believe that God’s breathed this life into every single person,” Osteen said at the time. “We’re all on a journey. Nobody’s perfect. The Bible says that a sin is pride, a sin is selfish ambition. We tend to pick out these certain things, but I believe that every person is made in the image of God, and you got to accept them as they are, as they’re on their journey.

“Again, scripture teaches that the way people are going to know his disciples is by our love for one another,” he continued. “So I’m not here, preaching hate, pushing people down. I’m not here to tell everyone what they’re doing wrong.” — Interview with Huffington Post.

‘It doesn’t matter who likes you or doesn’t like you; all that matters is that God likes you. He accepts you; He approves of you,” Zepps stated, reading from Osteen’s book. “Is that true for gay men or true for homosexuals?”

“Absolutely,” Osteen replied. (Huffington Post)

 

“So I want you to know this morning: Just do good for your own self. Do good 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?” (Victoria Osteen)

Inteviewer: “[In your new book, you write that] to become a better you, you must be positive towards yourself, develop better relationships, embrace the place where you are. Not one mention of God in that. Not one mention of Jesus Christ in that.”

Osteen: “That’s just my message. There is scripture in there that backs it all up. But I feel like, Byron, I’m called to help people…how do we walk out the Christian life? How do we live it? And these are principles that can help you. I mean, there’s a lot better people qualified to say, ‘Here’s a book that going to explain the scriptures to you.’ I don’t think that’s my gifting.” — 60 Minutes interview

“We don’t talk about the Cross; that’s too negative”.

“I believe that [Mormons] are Christians. … I don’t know if it’s the purest form of Christianity, like I grew up with. But you know what, I know Mormons. I hear Mitt Romney—and I’ve never met him—but I hear him say, ‘I believe Jesus is the Son of God,’ ‘I believe he’s my Savior,’ and that’s one of the core issues.

“I’m sure there are other issues that we don’t agree on. But you know, I can say that the Baptists and the Methodists and the Catholics don’t all agree on everything. So that would be my take on it.”

WALLACE: So, for instance, when people start talking about Joseph Smith, the founder of the church, and the golden tablets in upstate New York, and God assumes the shape of a man, do you not get hung up in those theological issues?

OSTEEN: I probably don’t get hung up in them because I haven’t really studied them or thought about them. And you know, I just try to let God be the judge of that. I mean, I don’t know. — Chris Wallace interview FOX NEWS.

“I like the fact that this pope is trying to make the church larger, not smaller,” Osteen said. “He’s not pushing people out but making the church more inclusive. That resonated with me.”
The truth is, if one will examine everything Joel Osteen has stated concerning false religions, the cross, homosexuality – everything to the word of God, one will finally come to realize that Joel Osteen is preaching another gospel altogether.
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” Galatians 1:8

ISIS1

 

There is a spirit of antichrist rising up throughout the world, and its agenda is to establish a kingdom which would rule with a iron (Islamic) sword, and ISIS is apparently it’s pawn.

It is yet unclear how ISIS will play (or if they will play) a significant role in the last days prophetic chapter of our world. Yet we know this much, ISIS is by far the single most deadliest foe the United States, or even the world, has come up against. So who is ISIS?

ISIS (or ISIL) stands for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. ISIS is headquartered in the city of Mosul, Iraq. ISIS consists mostly of Al-Qaeda terrorists from the region around Mosul. The main theme of ISIS is to declare itself as the head of a new Islamic Caliphate. A Caliphate is a Muslim empire ruled by one person. A Caliph is the political and religious ruler of an Islamic empire. This Caliphate is to create an Islamic world ruled by one person and that man would bring the world under complete Islamic control.

What we are seeing with the rise of ISIS is setting the world stage for one final and grand event which would send the world into not just a war, but a religious war – and Islamic war. Many believe that because of President Obama’s lack of desire to counter this genuine threat, not only to the United States, but the rest of the world, that Obama is allowing ISIS to grow, capturing territories along the way, enabling them to grow by the thousands and beheading anyone who stands in their way.

There is no question in my mind that President Obama has no desire to go against ISIS unless he absolutely has to, actually, I believe President Obama will not move against ISIS while in office, it will be his successor to the Oval office who will take the world into one last, great battle. Either way, what we are seeing right now is the beginning of prophecy unfold before our eyes.

ISIS recently revealed that their intention is to bring about a 10 nation confederacy. Any random student of prophecy will clearly understand that the mere mention of a 10 nation confederacy is symbolic of the coming 10 kingdom rule as mentioned in Revelation 17:12: “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.” The 10 kingdoms of Revelation 17 are enumerated in Psalms 83:6-8:

Yet Obama will not lead the nation into this war, his successor will. The war will give rise to the false prophet, he will make himself known to the world. It is my belief that we are seeing the real possibility that ISIS might be the trigger to bring about this one last great war. For ISIS to openly bring about a 10 nation kingdom, which would include China. (source)

In a recent and shocking turn of events, several reports have come out to warn the world that 11 commercial airliners were recently stolen, (source) Libyan jetliners that U.S. authorities have no knowledge of where they could be. Since we are nearing September 11th (as of this writing) it is very unnerving that so close to such a date as 9-11, we now now that 11 jetliners could be used to attack U.S. interests somewhere in the world – even our own shores.

What we do know is this, the world has grown more dangerous today than ever before, yet not just the world, but society as well. It seems as though men are turning against one another almost daily, doing unspeakable things all in the name of self. Yet the Bible speaks that in the last days, men would become evil and wicked. What we are seeing in ISIS is yet one more indicator that says we are nearing the final last chapter of humanity.

President Barack Obama is not going to take us (as a nation) into another great war, but his successor will. I believe what is now occurring is the stage being set, the players are being established and now all we do or can do is wait, wait until everything which needs to be fulfilled for the final trigger is pushed to begin the last step toward mankind’s darkest chapter of his humanity.

I believe God is giving us (the church) a clear and precise warning, “Time is about up” and whatever we have to do, we must do it now, for things will not be the same in the next few years.

hobbylobby1

 

Christian, you’ve been had, hoodwinked, bamboozled.

In Matthew 24:4, Jesus gave his disciples something of a warning, and that warning was not to be deceived by anyone who claimed Christ in mere words, but not in action. Yet the sad truth is, many a Christian are being sadly deceived by those who claim one thing yet do another. Such is the case with Hobby Lobby.

Now that the wave of ranting, posturing and grand standing by all sides of the social and political, not to mention the religious world is over with concerning Hobby Lobby and their fight to be excluded from the Obamacare when it comes to granting its employees contraceptives which Hobby Lobby attorneys successfully argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. Yet what many Christians did not, nor were not told is, that Hobby Lobby is not only a company who has benefited from contraceptives, but they have financially benefited from abortion itself.

Hobby Lobby is owned by the Green family, who advocate that interfering with an already fertilized egg is tantamount to abortion—an act unacceptable to the family and one they refuse to participate in no matter what the Affordable Care Act may require . Yet the Greens have and are, currently profiting off of companies whose business is one of abortion services and their respective clients. Not only does the Green family invest in companies which provide or support abortion, they equally have holdings in companies who manufacture products which by mere definition cause abortions.

Documents filed with the Department of Labor and dated December 2012—three months after the company’s owners filed their lawsuit (source) show that the Hobby Lobby 401(k) employee retirement plan held more than $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and drugs commonly used in abortions. Hobby Lobby makes large matching contributions to this company-sponsored 401(k).

Not only did Hobby Lobby try to argue (successfully) against being forced to provide the types of contraceptives they believe would be counter-productive to their “core values”, the truth is, the Green family have invested heavily into the companies which produce the very thing they themselves argued against in their court case last year. The following is just a few of what the Greens have holdings in which benefit their 401K. These companies include:

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, which makes Plan B and ParaGard, a copper IUD, and Actavis, which makes a generic version of Plan B and distributes Ella. Other stock holdings in the mutual funds selected by Hobby Lobby include Pfizer, the maker of Cytotec and Prostin E2, which are used to induce abortions; Bayer, which manufactures the hormonal IUDs Skyla and Mirena; AstraZeneca, which has an Indian subsidiary that manufactures Prostodin, Cerviprime, and Partocin, three drugs commonly used in abortions; and Forest Laboratories, which makes Cervidil, a drug used to induce abortions. Several funds in the Hobby Lobby retirement plan also invested in Aetna and Humana, two health insurance companies that cover surgical abortions, abortion drugs, and emergency contraception in many of the health care policies they sell.

The information on Hobby Lobby’s 401(k) investments is included in the company’s 2013 annual disclosure (source) to the Department of Labor. The records contain a list, dated December 31, 2012, of 24 funds that were included in its employer-sponsored retirement plan. All nine funds—which have assets of $73 million, or three-quarters of the Hobby Lobby retirement plan’s total assets—contained holdings that clashed with the Greens’ stated religious principles.

The sad reality is this, one cannot claim Christian principles and yet at the same time invest into companies which by their very admission, are creating products or services which provide as well as benefit abortion. It is hypocritical for the Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby to state they reject any Government intrusion in their ability to run a business by claiming that being forced to provide employees contraceptive coverage is immoral based on their religious views, yet by their own financial records, the Greens have invested heavily into companies who provide the very same services they themselves are against – for profit. Yet it’s even more hypocritical for Christians to defend a company such as Hobby Lobby and claim that by doing so they are defending Christian values when they aren’t.

The church has found itself muddied lately simply because they do not desire to examine all things, and they fail to check the spirits of those who come in the name of Christ, simply because they have a particular agenda they want to defend and protect. This not only leads to confusion, but eventually it fails to rightly defend the truth when the defenders are too blind to see the hypocrisy they have sadly supported. That makes the cause of Christ tainted by spiritual immaturity and the only one who looks like the fool is the church. The body of Christ needs to wake up and get out of the political movements and social causes they randomly find themselves in, and instead, start to preach the cross to a lost and dying world.

ISIS

 

With the recent developments with ISIS beginning to sweep over the middle east, with Britain and even the FBI worrying about the role ISIS is now playing in Iraq and Syria, not to mention today’s (Saturday August 30th, 2014) warning by the King of Saudi Arabia (source), it is obvious that ISIS is now more of a threat to the U.S. than Al Qaeda ever could be.

What I am about to publicly state, I have held onto for 5 years now, a prophetic vision that I had of something that I believe God gave me of what is coming. I do not advocate violence and this post is not to support violence or the overthrow the Government. I am a born again Christian, a preacher of the gospel and a last days prophet who has been given dreams of what is coming on this nation, some of which is now coming to pass. What I was shown is an attack against the President of the United States.

For five years, I sat on this dream (night vision) and thought it was simply going to pass quietly. However disturbing events in recent months have shaken my spirit where I must re-evaluate what I was shown and why the Holy Spirit is once again urging me to sound this alarm. The men in the vision I had were dressed in black, from head to toe. They had unique Islamic designs on their body, symbols. Had it not been for ISIS, I would have ignored it. Yet something in my spirit kept bringing this dream back to my remembrance as for a warning of what could be about to occur.

Here is the night vision:

I was standing on a piece of fresh grass, it seemed like a small hill, there were trees around and children playing in the location where I was at. From where I could see, I realized that I was in a park, but I also noticed WHERE I was standing – it was a large City and by many of the structures and locations I could see that it was somewhere in the east coast, I know this only because I have been to New York and Jersey several years ago and it looked identical to what I saw. From my best guess it was in NYC area or it was DC, either way, I was physically in the east.

I took notice of a large entrance tunnel, it was a tunnel much like what I have seen in NY and something kept bugging me to pay attention to this as the tunnel seemed like the particular center of attention to this dream.

My attention was then focused on something that I soon noticed and that was a large caravan of vehicles appeared seemingly out of nowhere. There were many photographers suddenly around me, all anticipating someone and by the look of the dark SUV’s, it appeared that it was someone of great importance – then I saw her. It was the youngest of President Obama’s children. She was in the playground area along with several other children, when out of the SUV stepped President Obama. He literally walked past me as I stood there watching what was taking place as the youngest came running up to him and falling into his arms as a young daughter would to her Father. But in my spirit I questioned why am I seeing this? Then it happened.

I stood and watched the two head back to the vehicle, when a rocket soared past me, the rocket was like one of a small personal military as it quickly went past me in a flash and struck the first vehicle, it was a followed by a large explosion. The blast threw me back onto the ground, this was strange to me as I wondered why a dream would do such a thing, but then I remember that it was the power of the dream itself of what I was seeing that brought fear into me.

The next thing I saw was several men dressed in black, storm from behind me, I could hear the sound of “rat-a- tat-tat” which revealed sub-machine guns. The President was quickly showered in gunfire, but was fine. The men were killed, but his daughter was wounded. But she did not die. Then the dream ended.

I believe that there will be an attack on the President in the coming years (keep in mind this is a re-post from 2010), if not sooner. My feeling is that the men were Islamic in nature for they spoke not English and had unique coverings that appeared to be Islamic. Again, this is what my interpretation was and is to this day. When this attack will come is not known as I do not or was not given that information, but I do know that my dream was very specific in detail and that it was so vivid that it was like I was in a movie.

I pray that God will protect this man as any person.
