False Spirits Invading The Church

I have wanted to warn of this movement for a while, but haven't gotten to it. Here is a book written by an insider, who came out of this dangerous movement. 




Written by a genuine "Insider," this is the true story of one of the most frightening "invasions" in the history of the church - and the fight to keep it out.

Andrew Strom has been part of the Charismatic movement for over 25 years - and was deeply involved in the modern "Prophetic" movement for 11 of those years. He is the founder of RevivalSchool.com and the International REVIVAL List. In this book, Strom traces this mass invasion of false spirits back to 1994, and shows how it culminated in the bizarre events surrounding Todd Bentley and the Lakeland revival in 2008. 

What are 'Kundalini' spirits? What are the signs of their presence? And how can such an invasion be turned around? All this and more is discussed in this provocative book. "A 'MUST READ'" - The Voice Magazine. "The church of Jesus Christ does not realize that it has been infiltrated by demonic forces. Discernment has been lost! A book that is beyond needful." - Greg Gordon, SermonIndex.

Growing Intolerance for Christianity

Growing Intolerance for Christianity in U.S.

 Article may be found here

By Delores Liesner|  Christian Post Contributor
 
The Christian Post interviews Brannon Howse, whose website is here.

"In a world of political correctness devoid of the rule of law, tolerance has come to mean total rejection of Christianity and moral standards. Modern tolerance redefines words like 'marriage,' 'discrimination,' 'equality,' 'morality,' and even 'absolutes.' The word 'tolerance' as it is used today never includes opposing arguments or competing worldviews. Tolerance has become Orwellian and decidedly intolerant." – Matthew Staver, Dean and Professor of Law at Liberty University School of Law.

A few examples of recent intolerance for Christianity:

• The Supreme court determining to exclude anyone who prays in Jesus name from a rotation of officials who open city business meetings
• The removal of US military Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, over the issue of praying in Jesus Name
• UCLA’s prohibiting a graduating student from thanking her “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” in her graduation speech
• Colleges making special accommodations for foot baths and Muslim only prayer rooms, while a Muslim group membership may be suspended or revoked for 57 reasons including but not limited to: unbecoming behavior, insubordination, or inactivity; but denying Christian groups campus recognition “because it requires its officers and voting members to agree with its Christian beliefs"
• A San Diego elementary school created an extra recess period to allow 100 Muslim students to pray, while a federal judge upheld a Knoxville, Ky., jury’s decision that a public school could prohibit its 5th grade Christian students from studying and discussing their Bibles during recess
• Christians in America have to tolerate the defamation of their holiest images in national museums, including particularly provocative, offensive acts defined as "artwork," some receiving taxpayer-funded grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. On the other hand, several college editors who cited freedom of speech when republishing anti-Muslim cartoons first published in a Danish newspaper, were fired or disciplined because they were offensive to Muslim students
• The Council on American-Islamic Relations (Los Angeles) requested an investigation of the desecration of a Quran, Islam's revealed text, as a hate crime. Conversely, when Palestinians tore up Bibles for toilet paper (May 15, 2002, The Washington Times) there was no outrage, and after a church in the U.S. saved and held fundraisers to afford the cost of buying and shipping requested Bibles in the Pashto and Dari language to an American sergeant in Afghanistan, the Bibles were confiscated, thrown away, and burned. The only official comment about burning the Bibles was this one, by a Defense Department spokesman, “Troops in war zones are required to "burn their trash."

These incidents have raised several questions that Brannon Howse, author and founder of Worldview Weekend, agreed to answer:

CP: Would you consider these examples of intolerance shocking or unexpected?
Howse: Not at all. Jesus said all nations will hate you. If you are a Bible-minded believer such persecution should not be uncommon or a surprise,” he stated, quoting 2 Timothy 3:12 “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

CP: With 38,000 denominations declared as Christian, why does the world’s intolerance seem focused on the smaller percentage who claims a Biblical lifestyle faith?
Howse: Many who have called themselves Christians were false converts. (II Cor. 7:10) There’s lots of happy talk but many Christians are only committed to a culture war, surveying unbelievers to see what they want in a church, and creating feel good pop-culture within the church. Many Americans are wimps who don’t want to suffer...don’t want to be uncomfortable...who don’t want to suffer...don’t want to be uncomfortable.

CP: Isn’t that rather divisive thinking?
Howse: I don’t mind being called divisive – I pray that I am divisive if that means based on the Word of God – living and active, rightly dividing truth and error. We should expect division – we need division to recognize that truth is not subjective or emotional; truth is the unchanging character and nature of God and His Word.

Americans seem to long for commonality and unity. This American idea of Christianity is not what goes on in countries like Cuba, China, or Korea. Those pastors have unity - the unity of all of them having been in prison for boldly living out their Christian faith.

Millions have been and continue to be martyred for Christ. (45.5 million in the last century per “The New Persecuted” by Antonio Socci). We need Martin Niemöllers and John Wycliffes for this generation. However, too many are only committed to a cotton candy Christianity, not the Christianity of Niemöller and Wycliffe that required persecution.

Without a sound theological foundation, when persecutions increase, and they will, according to scripture, many who call themselves believers won’t want to be marked as Christians. Those only committed to culture war will give up with no hope.

CP: Are you saying everyday Christians, students, business people, and homemakers as well as clergy should be expecting bias, intolerance or hostility in all areas of life including civil government, education, economics, public policy, and family?
Howse: Actually, if an individual who claims to be a Christian is not experiencing intolerance or persecution – being called names, belittled, marginalized, or characterized because you stand for sound theology – you should examine yourself to make sure you are a Christian. (See 10 hallmarks of a Christian at: http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-tube/video.php?videoid=4383)

Our culture is doing what Scripture said – getting worse and worse. The books of James and 1 Peter tell us not to be surprised at fiery ordeals ...[when they come – not if] as though some strange (or foreign) thing were happening to you. Suffering, intolerance and persecution are building us up for the best part of life – which is yet to come.

CP: So what can Christians do when they find their faith under assault?
Howse: We are in the world to be salt and light. We have to have contact with the world to be salt and light, just as Jesus did. Keep standing for righteousness or right living, for life of the unborn and of seniors and keep going whether or not you win in the courtroom, the capitol, or anywhere else in this world, because you are standing for Christ.

Remember that it is impossible to find unity with the world without compromising, and remember that we are God’s messengers. Take all opportunity to proclaim the gospel (Galatians 4:16), and ask yourself, “What am I proclaiming?” If we are proclaiming that the Word of God is truth by our life and actions we are becoming the enemy of the world. The world is not tolerant of its enemies.

In Germany, many who called themselves Christians went along with Hitler but people like Corrie ten Boom said no I must stay true to purpose of the gospel. The world would say her family lost and that she was foolish to proclaim the gospel in a losing situation, but the reality is that she won for the gospel by pointing fellow prisoners to Christ.

CP: Are you saying there can be a positive outcome from intolerance and persecution?
Howse: Absolutely. Persecution is an expected evidence of being a follower of Jesus Christ, and we can utilize everything that is happening in our world and culture as a pulpit, an opportunity, to share the hope we have in Christ. But the Bible teaches us to respond and not to react.

Matthew 5:10 talks of the blessing of those who are persecuted for righteousness sake – not for responding as the world does.
Intolerance for righteousness is to be expected and embraced as an opportunity to live so that anytime Christians are persecuted, the world will watch and wonder why are they willing to persevere and not compromise.

Beck Is Not A Christian

I was one of the first to say it ... and I'll say it again ... and again.

Glenn Beck is not a Christian. Ample proof is in his new book. You cannot be a Mormon, a pagan, a New Ager, a Jehovah's Witness, a Scientologist, a Muslim, or any other religion, and be a Christian, too. These other religions all worship a different God than the Christian worships. (But, they all worship the same god - you know who.)

The world (and baby Christians) can be confused by his constant claim to Christianity (as Mormons always do claim), but the actual leaders of 'organized Christian churches' seem to have no problem with it. Christ's true church on earth, however, will readily see this sham. That's what makes them the true church.

Let's not pussyfoot around any longer. Any pastor or Christian leader who endorses Beck's Christianity is involved in heresy.

If so many pastors are going astray, think how careful the laity needs to be.

All of the answers are in The Book. Read it.

Religion Will Be The Basis of New World Order

Tony Blair, who was the Prime Minister of Britain, became a member of the Roman Catholic Church shortly after his term expired. He may be considered the chief organizer of the global religion through his Tony Blair Faith Foundation (Rick Warren is on the Board) and other avenues. He recently said, "...the place of faith in the era of globalization is the single biggest issue in the 21st century."

The new world government will be a blend of communism, socialism and capitalism - a form of fascism, acquired primarily through indoctrination, minimizing violence. We can easily see how well this has worked in the education system over the past few years, as well as society in general through entertainment and other media. The church, unfortunately, is a beautiful example of transformation from the doctrines of Jesus Christ into the doctrines of a new world government.

Religion is the primary vehicle through which this will be accomplished - a 'thousand points of light.'  It has been developing extremely quietly, but when it nears completion (as it is) it will spring into public view as an accomplished fact. Lucifer embraces religion. It is the ultimate motive behind his purposed government, since he counterfeits every aspect of God's relationship with mankind. His goal is to replace God, and to be worshipped as God. He is building his kingdom - and at its core is his spiritual, religious, occult system. The Pope has recently called for "a true world political authority to oversee the economy and work for the common good."

The role of church leaders - as spelled out a century ago by Alice Bailey - is to promote globalism and pagan spirituality, and they have been doing a fine job doing just that.This idea has been expounded by the Roman Catholic leadership for a number of years, and is now being echoed by Protestant pastors.  The very idea of globalism rose out of the occult. It is Satan's system, and it naturally sprang from his influence.

Remember Nancy Pelosi and her mangled news-conference praise of "The Word?" She sees 'the word' as something quite different than the Christian does. Satan recognizes the power of religion, and he intends to use that power which will serve (and worship) him in his government. The idea of a Kingdom of God on earth also lends itself quite effectively to the dominionists, who make up a good portion of the world of Christendom.

Satan is only too well aware of his major problem, America, because of its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. These three areas were pointed out specifically by Joseph Stalin as the targets to destroy America from within. This has almost been achieved.

To achieve this goal, top priority was given to infiltration into the Christian churches, which began over 100 years ago through communist front groups such as the early Methodist Federation for Social Action, the Federal Council of Churches, the National Council of Churches, and most important of all: the infiltration of the seminaries. It is worthy of note that people like globalist John D. Rockefeller took an early and active part in the religious organizations, saying, "I see the church literally establishing the Kingdom of God on earth." The "God" of which he spoke was not the God of the Christians, but rather Lucifer - and he knew of whom he spoke.  It is an unsavory fact that most, if not all, of the globalist leaders of this world worship Satan - literally. They do so deliberately and with devotion.

The opening shots in the church wars came in a famous sermon by Harry Fosdick in 1922, entitled, "Shall The Fundamentalists Win?" In that sermon he tore down every orthodox belief and shredded them all to bits, a fact which greatly distressed Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was a student at Union Seminary in New York at the time, He was later murdered for his Christian beliefs and speaking out against these things. Rockefeller, however, upon hearing the sermon became a great benefactor of Fosdick.

Bonhoeffer believed the seminary graduates were aiding in the downfall of America - and this was almost 100 years ago, saying:

"...the theological education of this group is virtually nil, and the self-assurance which lightly makes mock of any specifically theological question is unwarranted and naive." 

About the seminary, he said:

"The lack of seriousness with which the students here speak of God and the world is, to say the least, extremely surprising...here in America one can hardly imagine the innocence with which people on the brink of their ministry ask questions in the seminar for practical theology - for example, whether one should really preach of Christ. In the end, with some idealism and a bit of cunning, we will be finished even with this - that is their sort of mood."  He believed this would lead to the downfall of America ... as it has.

We were forewarned. Jude 3,4:  "I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ."

2 Peter 2:1-2: "...there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies..."  

And, sadly, most do not even recognize it.

A Shattered Nation - A Shattered People

While I don't totally agree with every single point in Sheriff Schwiesow's article, I do agree with 99% - and that 99% trumps. There is tremendous and powerful truth in his words.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
 By Sheriff Jim R. Schwiesow, Ret.April 23, 2011NewsWithViews.com

“But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.” Ezekiel 18:24
THE TRAVAILS OF A NATION YIELDED UNTO THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?” -Romans 6:16

In the midst of a drunken debauchery King Belshazzar, successor to King Nebuchadnezzar, of Babylon flaunted his arrogance in the face of almighty God by using the sacred silver and golden vessels taken from Solomon’s Temple to praise 'the gods of gold and silver, brass, iron, wood, and stone'. Immediately upon the sacrilege a disembodied hand appeared, to the astonishment of the drunken revelers, and inscribed upon the wall the words: mina, mina, shekel, half-mina. None in the Kingdom could decipher those words, but Daniel the exiled Jew previously taken from Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar could and did. 

Daniel admonished the King of the folly of his arrogant blasphemy, and then rendered an interpretation of the words that had been etched upon the wall by the hand of God thusly: mina, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; shekel, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; half-mina, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. To the king the words were a portent of doom, as that very night Belshazzar was slain and his kingdom fell to the Medes and Persians. 

The people of the United States are no less brazen; no less sacrilegious and no less profane than was Belshazzar and his drunken cohorts on the fateful night of his prophesied demise. And a righteous God can be no less condemning of the in your face hauteur and deliberate disdain of His sovereignty by the American people and their chosen leaders than He was of a pagan king.

Currently this nation is being pounded by climatological events of an increasingly frightening, if not downright terrifying, nature. No corner of the nation is being spared the divinely directed judgments that are being rained down upon an apostate and recalcitrant people. 

Daily violent tornadoes rip the middle sections of the mainland. These meandering black gigantisms rumble like freight trains across the plains leaving in their deadly wake ribbons of rubble, fields of debris, uprooted trees, and dead bodies. Elsewhere raging floods inundate hundreds of thousands of acres, submerging homes, businesses, and institutional buildings in stinking black muck. While in the West and Southwest hellish flames devour vast sections of land and gobble up homes, buildings, wild life, and domestic livestock. 

It would seem that gone are the days when our benevolent God delivered gentle spring rains, balmy breezes, sun-soaked days and peaceful starry nights upon this land; such have been replaced by unrelenting torrents of wind driven rain and bombardments of hailstones immense in size and punitive in nature. The continual displacement of climatological records denotes the increasing intensity in destructiveness and size of these anomalies of nature. Peaceful days across the breadth of this nation are currently non-existent; henceforth this nation will not know a day of serenity. 

If we could peer into the black rampaging clouds, the muddy depths of the murky waters, or the stinging smoke of the run-a-way conflagrations we would find inscribed within these dreaded manifests of God’s anger these words, “you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting.” 

SOME WRITE LETTERS

I often receive letters from those who come across my writings on the internet. Some read my writings because they value and understand God’s truth; others hate the truth and would rather believe the lies of illogical men. It is these that God has delivered unto false beliefs: "And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie." -2 Thessalonians 2:11 

I am not sure as to the exact number of those who fail to understand what is coming upon this nation, but believe it to be the great majority of the people. If they understand nothing else they certainly should be aware of the continuum of catastrophic events that is being rained down upon this filthy and apostate nation, these are not happenstance, nor are they naturally occurring events. They are wrought by the hand of God and meant to correct a sin-laden people - a people, it seems, that refuse to be corrected. 

Often I receive comments to the effect that my use of “big” words limits my readership. Personally I think that it is the bringing forth of God’s word in this fallen society that limits my readership, an apostate people hates the word of God. 


I have little patience for those who claim that the words of my articles are difficult. This points up the fact that our socialist educational system that costs billions in taxpayer dollars is totally worthless and fails miserably in its mission to educate the people. It also says that those who fail to understand are too lazy to educate themselves. I have little tolerance for slothful people; there is no excuse for such ignorance. A diligent man will study and read that he might improve his understanding and comprehension. I would suggest that these people start with the Holy Bible, but they refuse to study the Words of God in order to understand their meaning in relation to their lives.
So it is that I refuse to revert to Dick and Jane prose when I write these messages. I left the “See Dick run” See Jane jump” and “See Spot catch the ball” vernacular back in first grade. 

HERE'S HOW IT SHAKES OUT

There comes a time when nations reach the saturation point in regard to sin and apostasy. When that time arrives the nation will effectually be a deprived and divested nation of little account; or it will disappear altogether. This nation has reached that point in time and since the people are stiff-necked and married to worldly lusts there is no hope for it. Since God doesn't visit miracles on an unrepentant people this nation is not just on the ropes, it is out on its feet.

I have no regard or respect for this nation, in fact I have come to actually loathe its filthiness and I do not grieve its soon coming demise. First loyalty belongs to the Lord and I tire of hearing this God and Country thing. It’s all for God; this world and the nations of it have nothing to offer. It has come to a point that true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ are ashamed to be a part of such a putrid environment.

The articles that I write are labeled opinion articles, but I believe every word that I set down in them.

DEPRAVITY REINS AND ENTERTAINS

“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.” -Matthew 7:16-17

Have you noticed the infatuation, nay the absolute fascination with the killing of human beings in this nation. People can’t seem to get enough of the mayhem and the gore. Serial killers and mass killings have come to be endemic, and the news media follows every outbreak with intense and rabid attention. They headline the butcheries of these demonic lunatics in order to titillate the perverse interest of a people seemingly gone over to the same perverted entertainment lust that was a part of the psyche of the people of the Roman Empire in its final days.

Perhaps it is a similar mind and soul of the people situation that explains the lack of guilt and remorse in this nation over the actual murder, in the most heinous of ways, of thirty-eight million babies since 1973. Some say that the number of baby slayings is much closer to fifty-one million and that may very well be the case. Whatever the instance this savage carnage upon living babies certainly does not bother the conscience of the majority of the people, this wickedness alone warrants the ferocious destruction being poured out upon this society. 

HEY MA! HEY PA! COME WATCH THE FUN
SICK MINDS - SICK NATION
 
Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same. -Job 4:8
Daily the people settle in front of their TV’s and movie screens to view the latest visual wrinkle in regard to murder, rape, adultery, fornication, sodomy, corruption and mayhem. Indeed the television and movie producers rake in millions from the production of prurience and violence. 

It is mindful of the sick days of the Roman Empire when the people flocked to the stadiums by the hundreds of thousands to enjoy a day in the sun viewing the spilling of blood and the dismemberment and strewing of the entrails of humans and animals. If they were lucky they might enjoy the excitement of a beheading or two. One wonders if they dragged their children to the festivities - you know just a day of good old family fun. 

We know of course that our children are not banned from the theatres and the living and family rooms of this nation. Why shelter them from what has become the norm seems to be the prevailing thought. After all they must know the harshness of reality. Oh, by the way please pass the popcorn…

WHERE HAVE WE COME AND WHAT LIES AT THE END OF THE JOURNEY?

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind: -Hosea 8:7
Often in Biblical times when nations had gone over to a complete rejection of God’s laws and strictures and were immersed in iniquity to a point of irrevocability God would deliver them into the captivity of heathen kings as punishment. Under the domination of such their lives were hard as they were subject to the depredations of pagan rulers who detested their very existence. I submit that such captivity and domination has already come upon the people of this nation. Hey! Wait a minute you say…we’re not in captivity and subject to a foreign king. Yes you are. You are in the grasp of a non-indigenous alien of heathen demeanor and totalitarian propensities and his name is Obama. 

Not only that dear reader, you will remain under such tyranny as your delusional indigenous leaders of the past forty-eight years and more have enabled the importation of a great multitude of culturally unassimilated aliens whose enfranchisement by the stupid politicos of yesterday and today will keep this interloping foreign tyrant in power. 

I have previously written of the social filthiness that has helped to bring about our current predicament, now let’s do a quick review of where we are under our present totalitarian socialist governance. 

Your government has enabled the inclusion of women in all of the combat branches of the military services. Your government has enabled the inclusion of sodomites in all of the branches of the military services. Your government has usurped authority over the National Guards of all the states, and uses the members thereof as cannon fodder in their unconstitutional guerilla wars and illegal interventions.
Unable to fill the ranks of the regular military services via the volunteer route these conscienceless reprobates entice economically stressed young men and women into the National Guard with monetary and educational inducements, and then ship them off to foreign hell holes where under the command of the federal military services they are either killed or disabled for life. 

A nation such as we have become cannot long stand. God has numbered the days of our kingdom and will bring it to an end. 
  
The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.” -Zephaniah 1:14-18

I Know That My Redeemer Lives!


"For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God; whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me."—Job 19:25-27.

Listen to the song here
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know eternal life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

Refrain
I know, I know, that Jesus liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know, I know, that life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

I know His promise never faileth,
The Word He speaks, it cannot die;
Though cruel death my flesh assaileth,
Yet I shall see Him by and by.

Refrain
I know my mansion He prepareth,
That where He is there I may be;
O wondrous thought, for me He careth,
And He at last will come for me.
 
Blessed Resurrection Day!
He is Risen Indeed

How The Vatican Created Islam

How the Vatican created Islam. The astonishing story from an ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, which was told to him by Cardinal Bea while he was at the Vatican.

This information came from Alberto Rivera, former Jesuit priest after his conversion to Protestant Christianity. It is excerpted from "The Prophet," published by Chick Publications, PO Box 662, Chino CA 91708.

Since its publication, after several unsuccessful attempts on his life, he died suddenly from food poisoning.

His testimony should not be silenced. Dr. Rivera speaks to us still...

"What I’m going to tell you is what I learned in secret briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest, under oath and induction.

"A Jesuit cardinal named Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the 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 AD, 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 placed today where the temple once stood, the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands 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. Lookng 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 1950’s 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 with us 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 (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 AD. This made Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place in the Islam 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 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 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 Christianm missionaries. Through these concordats, Satan blocked the children of Ishmael from a knowledge of Scripture and the truth.

"A light control was kept on Muslims from the Ayatollah down through the Islamic priests, nuns and monks. The Vatican also engineers a campaign of hatred between the Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before this, they had co-existed peacefully.

"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 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 world-wide 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 phoney 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 world-wide, 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."

False Religion: Jehovah's Witness

The following erroneous beliefs are doctrines of the Jehovah's Witness:
  • Only the Jehovah's Witness (JW) organization can correctly interpret the Bible.
  • Jesus Christ was the archangel Michael before becoming a man.
  • The JW version of the Bible is the only one that is correct.
  • After Jesus died, he was resurrected back to the archangel Michael
  • The doctrine of the Trinity is an evil doctrine that teaches the existence of 3 gods.
  • Jesus is a separate 'god' than Jehovah.
  • There is no hell; when a sinner dies he ceases to exist at all.
  • Salvation is obtained through works.
  • Jehovah's Witnesses will be 'gods' when they go to heaven.
  • There are two types of Christians: 1) The little flock, who are born again 2) the great number of other sheep. The little flock will go to heaven, and the great crowd of other sheep will live on earth after the judgment of unbelievers.
  • Christ returned to earth invisibly in 1914 and began setting up his kingdom on earth.
 These are the primary JW beliefs which are in error, and are completely opposed to the doctrine of the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are numerous other practices which they forbid, such as birthday parties, Mother's Day and Father's Day. They also forbid celebration of Easter and Christmas, which both have their roots in paganism (and the Christian Church needs to be aware of this truth).

Jehovah's Witness is not Bible Christianity. Rather, it is heresy. It is a cult.

Reiki and Spirit Guides

"Reiki, and its Connection to the Contemplative Practices of Thomas Merton and Richard Foster"
by Ray Yungen

A mystical pragmatism is growing particularly fast through various New Age healing techniques. One such procedure is called Reiki (pronounced ray-key), a Japanese word that translates to Universal Life Energy or God energy. It has also been referred to as the radiance technique. Reiki is an ancient Tibetan Buddhist healing system, rediscovered by a Japanese man in the 1800s, that only recently has come to the West.

The Reiki technique consists of placing the hands on [or near] the recipient and then activating the energy to flow through the practitioner and into the recipient. One practitioner describes the experience in the following way:
When doing it, I become a channel through which this force, this juice of the universe, comes pouring from my palms into the body of the person I am touching, sometimes lightly, almost imperceptibly, sometimes in famished sucking drafts. I get it even as I’m giving it. It surrounds the two of us, patient and practitioner.
What is this “juice of the universe?” The answer is an important one, given by a renowned Reiki master who explains:
A Reiki attunement is an initiation into a sacred metaphysical order that has been present on earth for thousands of years … By becoming part of this group, you will also be receiving help from the Reiki guides and other spiritual beings who are also working toward these goals.

While this is not widely advertised, Reiki practitioners depend on this “spirit guide” connection as an integral aspect of Reiki. In fact, it is the very foundation and energy behind Reiki. One Reiki master who has enrolled hundreds of other masters spoke of her interaction with the spirit guides:
For me, the Reiki guides make themselves the most felt while attunements are being passed. They stand behind me and direct the whole process, and I assume they also do this for every Reiki Master. When I pass attunements, I feel their presence strongly and constantly. Sometimes I can see them.

Sounds From Hell, Screams of the Damned

         Here is an interesting article (which I cannot, of course, vouch for). You can find it HERE.

Scientist from Siberia who heard the screams from hellDo you believe in hell? where it is? Is it a real place or symbolical? Bible talks about hell several times. But I would like to share you this true to life experience of scientist named Dr. Azzacove from Russia who doesnt believe in God, in bible and hell. This news appeared in the well respected Finland newspaper, Ammenusastia.

Heres what happened, a group of geological scientist was drilling a 14.4 kilometers hole deep in Siberia, … then after using their super sensitive microphones to test the underground for sound intervals, they shocked on what they heard. First they heard a high pitched sound, they thought the sound was from their digging devices. After some adjustments: They heard a terrifying screams…, not just screams of a single human, but screams of millions human voice, a screams of pain.
Dr. Azzavoc picture
Dr. Azzavoc the project manager of the scientist says. Aside from the screams they heard they were also surprised on a very high temperature around 1,100 degrees celsius. They are afraid to continue the project, and about half of the scientist quit because of fear.
Dr. Azzavoc is a communist, doesnt believe on God, and bible.. But after this event. He believes now that Hell really exist!.


Jacques Cousteau the great sea diverAnother case of Inferno screaming sounds story: the famous sea diver and underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau stopped from scuba diving after hearing a sounds of human screaming on one of underwater caves he was exploring. Also one of Jacques-Cousteau’s men heard a frightening sounds of screams of human deep in trench of Bermuda Triangle.
Before I end this post, I would like to ask you what is your opinion behind this story… Is the hell located deep down the earth’s crust ,at the middle of the earth’s core? Post your opinions and comments please. Thanks!

Yoga is Hindu. Period.

by Chris Lawson of Spiritual Research Network

Dear reader, the following article has been written in order to convey information about the unbiblical practice of Christian Yoga. Sadly, many professing Christians in the church are too undiscerning to know any better. Even Hindu’s recognize that “Christian Yoga is still Hindu.”

This article is also written with heartfelt grief and concern for those whom I have lovingly warned about the dangers of yoga, but who have rejected biblical counsel, pastoral exhortation, brotherly advice, testimony of destroyed lives, written warnings from yogi’s of the dangers involved with yoga, etc. This past year I have received several emails from people whose lives have become dismantled due to yoga practice.

Others, thinking they know better, have laughed at me and said that I don’t know what I am talking about. Some have even gone so far as to ignorantly state that hatha yoga is just “exercise” and cannot harm anybody.

Although this article is in two parts, it is not meant to be a full length biblical critique on Christian yoga. Rather, it is meant to serve as a wake up call and warning to all who profess to be Christian–and yet find themselves “Stretching out in Worship” through yogic poses (asanas) and breath control techniques (pranayama). If any professing Christian can still justify doing yoga after reading this and the forthcoming articles, they might want to think twice about which Jesus they worship. The Jesus of the Bible does not and will never endorse any kind of yoga. Yoga, in any way, shape or form, has the ability to corrupt the mind and undo a Christian’s faith. It has as its goal the conversion

of individuals to an occult, pantheistic world view. As we shall see, Christian Yoga, like all yoga, is part of the occult based Hindu religion. Re-labeling yoga for undiscerning westerners doesn’t change the facts. Yoga is yoga! Click here to read more.

What Americans Believe About Universalism and Pluralism: Barna Report

 BARNA REPORT MAY BE FOUND HERE
 
April 18, 2011

Most Americans believe they, themselves, will go to heaven. Yet, when asked to describe their views about the religious destiny of others, people become much less forgiving. Some people might be described as inclusive—that is, embracing the notion that everyone—or nearly everyone—makes it into heaven. Others possess a generally exclusive take on faith, viewing the afterlife in a more selective manner.

A new analysis of Barna Group trend data explores whether Americans embrace inclusive or exclusive views of faith as well as how they operate within a context of religious pluralism, or the multi-faith nature of U.S. society. The research examines what Americans believe, whether there have been changes over time, and the degree to which younger generations are different from older adults.

Universalism
Broadly defined, universalism is the belief that all human beings will be saved after death. On balance, Americans leaned toward exclusive rather than inclusive views. For example, 43% agreed and 54% disagreed with the statement, “It doesn’t matter what religious faith you follow because they all teach the same lessons.”

Similar splits in public opinion emerged for the statements, “All people will experience the same outcome after death, regardless of their religious beliefs” (40% agreed, 55% disagreed) and the sentiment, “All people are eventually saved or accepted by God, no matter what they do, because he loves all people he has created” (40% versus 50%).

However, even as millions of Americans believe God saves everyone, most still place strong responsibility on human effort and choice regarding their ultimate destiny. Nearly seven out of 10 adults agreed with the idea “in life you either side with God or you side with the devil; there is no in-between position” (69% versus 27%). And about half of adults concurred that “if a person is generally good or does enough good things for others, they will earn a place in heaven” (48% agreed, while 44% disagreed).

Pluralism
One aspect of exclusion and inclusion is how Americans’ relate to faiths other than their own, which is particularly important in a pluralistic, multi-faith society. On the evangelistic side, a slim majority of Americans (51%) believe they have “a responsibility to tell other people their religious beliefs.”

At the same time, more than three out of every five adults (62%) said it is important “to have active, healthy relationships with people who belong to religious faiths that do not accept the central beliefs of your faith.”

In a mash-up of pluralism and universalism, 59% of adults believe that “Christians and Muslims worship the same God even though they have different names and beliefs regarding God.” Americans are less likely to endorse the idea that “the Bible, the Koran and the Book of Mormon are all different expressions of the same spiritual truths,” although 43% agreed, conforming closely to the percent of Americans who endorse inclusive ideas about faith.

One of the interesting findings regarding Islam was the fact that residents of Texas (62%) were equally likely as residents of New York (62%) to believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same deity. Florida residents (58%) were statistically similar. Yet, the inhabitants of the nation’s most populous state, California, were less likely than average to embrace this view (48%).

Christians’ Perspectives
When looking at the Christian community, born again Christians were more likely to be interested in sharing their faith with others as well as more likely than average to say they desire active, healthy relationships with people of other faiths. [Born again Christians are defined by Barna Group as those who have made a commitment to Jesus Christ and who believe they are going to heaven because of their confession of sins and accepted Christ as their savior. It is not based upon self-identifying with the label “born again.”]

Nevertheless, despite their own personal faith convictions, many born again Christians embrace certain aspects of universalist thought. One-quarter of born again Christians said that all people are eventually saved or accepted by God (25%) and that it doesn’t matter what religious faith you follow because they all teach the same lessons (26%). An even larger percentage of born again Christians (40%) indicated that they believe Christians and Muslims worship the same God.

Generational Changes
In an analysis of the changing perspectives since the mid-nineties, the Barna database revealed little significant change in public opinion on matters of universalism and pluralism. However, there were some intriguing generational patterns that shed light on what may be impending shifts.

Across all adults, including Christians and other faith groups, young Americans ages 18 to 39 were considerably less likely than older Americans to believe that in life you either side with God or the devil; there is no in-between. Similarly, young people were less enamored with the idea of telling others about their religious beliefs. Upticks were also found among younger generations in terms of believing that Christians and Muslims worship the same God; endorsing the idea that all people are eventually saved or accepted by God, no matter what they do; and embracing the notion that it doesn’t matter what religious faith you follow because they all teach the same lessons.

Despite the many ways younger adults report more open-minded faith attitudes, the research showed that adults over forty were actually more likely than 18- to 39-year-olds to desire healthy relationships with people of other faiths.

Interestingly, younger born again Christians stand in stark contrast to their peers, being much less open to inclusive or universalist views of eternity. Still, while they are holding firm on many matters of orthodoxy, young Christians also expressed less certainty than previous generations did about what will happen to them, personally, when they die.

Observations
David Kinnaman, president of the Barna Group, pointed out that “the difference between the Christian community and the cultural norms is even more pronounced among the youngest generations than the older generations. In other words, younger born again Christians’ attitudes about religious inclusivity and exclusivity are more divergent from their peers than is currently true of their parents’ generation.

“This gap represents increasing pressure on young believers to understand those differences and to find meaning and confidence in their faith convictions. This may be part of the reason young people are hesitant to share their faith with others and why they have so many questions about the nature of heaven: they are less certain what they believe and crossing the divide to communicate with their peers on this issue is a big jump. Helping to prepare young people for this belief gap and enabling them to understand biblical teaching—while also encouraging healthy friendships with people who hold other spiritual views—are crucial challenges for today’s Christian leaders.”

About the Research

This report is based upon telephone interviews conducted in the OmniPollSM and drawn from Barna Group’s theolographicTM database. This analysis pulls from studies conducted from 2005 through 2011. Each survey involved a minimum of 1,000 respondents, randomly selected from across the continental United States, age 18 and older. The research includes a representative proportion of people who no longer have a landline and now solely rely on cell phones.

The maximum margin of sampling error associated with the aggregate sample is ±3.2 percentage points at the 95% confidence level. Minimal statistical weighting was used to calibrate the aggregate sample to known population percentages in relation to several key demographic variables. “Born again Christians" were defined in these surveys as people who said they have made "a personal commitment to Jesus Christ that is still important in their life today" and who also indicated they believe that when they die they will go to Heaven because they had confessed their sins and had accepted Jesus Christ as their savior. Respondents were not asked to describe themselves as "born again." Being classified as "born again" is not dependent upon church or denominational affiliation or involvement.

How Washington D.C. Beckons The Evil One

Why Are There Domes, Obelisks, And Magic Squares In Washington DC?

The secrets of the true Lost Symbol (what Dan Brown was looking for and did not find), the forbidden knowledge of the Vatican and Washington DC, and the two-hundred year old cipher hidden in plain site at the Capitol Dome and on the Great Seal of the United States lead to the discovery of a lifetime, with a countdown toward the year 2012, and is unlike anything you have heard or read anywhere before. It is all spelled out in Tom Horn's book, Apollyon Rising 2012, which I read about a year ago. Even as a long-time research of these matters, I was absolutely shocked.

His book has shaken the halls of Congress, the 33rd degree Freemasons, the Vatican, and all those 'in the know' who don't want YOU to know, so I will lead those who seek the truth to the facts. Horn's blog was banned on government computers.Horn has an article which summarizes the book, discussing the following points and much more.
  • Unrecognized by the vast majority of peoples around the world is the greatest conspiracy of all time, sitting right out in the open in Washington DC and at the Vatican. It is an ancient, magical, talismanic diagram—the Lost Symbol—which waits its final use by the hidden, occult hand guiding the Secret Destiny of America toward the year 2012.
  • To make sure they are prepared, the ritual for what is coming has been rehearsed in the Heredom by the Supreme Council over Washington DC with every passing US president starting with George Washington in anticipation of the deity's return in 2012.
  • Many US Founding fathers were aware of these prophecies and designed the Capitol City to serve as the home of these pagan gods on their return.
  • This secret is also openly hidden in the most spectacular way in the US Capitol Dome, directly tying the US and Vatican to the Mesoamerican 2012 date.
  • Catholic priests who tried to warn about what was coming died under mysterious circumstances.
  • A 200 Year Old cipher encoded on the Great Seal of the United States points to the same prophecy concerning the return of the gods in the year 2012.
  • Nearly 500 years ago the Maya prophesied about the Colonial date 1776 as the beginning of the last 13 katuns leading to apocalypse in 2012. When academic Richard N. Luxton interpreted The Book of Chumayel: The Counsel Book of the Yucatec Maya 1539–1638, he was astonished to find it was connected to the "Christian Last Judgment" and the date 2012.
  • A couple modern "Mayan elders" - who have been getting themselves in the news lately by claiming the year 2012 will not lead to the end of the world - are covering up how their prophecies diametrically contradict the prophecies of their forefathers including the Maya, Aztec, and numerous other ancient peoples who foresaw this time as portending destruction and "judgment from the gods."
  • 200 Years ago Cherokee Indians prophesied likewise and set their calendar, like the Maya and Aztec, to end in the year 2012.
  • In more than one place in the New Testament, scripture reveals by the same name that the deity encoded in the Masonic prophecy on the Great Seal and elsewhere throughout Washington DC will be the dreaded Antichrist.
  • Over 700 years ago Orthodox Jewish priests prophesied in the Zohar that their Messiah would arrive in the year 2012.
  • The first degree Masonic Tracing Board contains the same prophecy toward the year 2012.
  • Jesus Himself in Matthew 24 may have set the date for the apocalypse around the year 2012.
  • This is a short sample of the HUNDREDS of new revelations in Apollyon Rising 2012.
