Is Pope Francis Preparing the Way for the False Prophet? - by Pastor Mike Taylor - https://pastormiketaylor.blogspot.com/2023/05/is-pope-false-prophet.html
12 “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” (Revelation 13:12-14)
I have at other times, written about the history of the Catholic church, mainly the Roman kind, as I have pointed out in the past a unification of the two main religions of the world, known as Chrislam, or Roman Catholicism and Islam joining forces for world domination. In a past message about the "Last Pope". I marveled at how this man just didn't seem to fit the preconceived notions floating in my head and spoke about it. But new developments and details have been brought to bear, and we need to look at this man a little closer.
Noting all the signs of the times around us, I've wondered when and how will a one world church prophesied in your bible come about?. For over a hundred years, one body has secretly and with stealth promoted a one world religion to draw all religions to the “mother church” and that is the Roman Catholic Church. In the past, they did it violently and with blood. Today, they do it with stealth and cunning and invading every part of society including education to promote the unity of the faith (sic). They will do it again, the “with blood part” in the Tribulation.
Prior to taking up the mantle to warn those who would listen, that I have resisted the idea of shining the light on this movement of “another Christ” "instead of Christ" "Anti-Christ" AKA, the “vicar of Christ” or god on earth known as the pope, in the distant past, for personal reasons, as my younger brother has embraced this Satanic form of religiosity, as he feels that only through the Catholic church can his salvation be assured. But I have a duty to God to call out heresy and evil within any religious organization who labels themselves "Christian". It’s our duty and our calling according to Paul in 1st Corinthians:
2 “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. (1st Corinthians 6:2-4)
Any organization on earth who puts themselves above God's Word should NOT be tolerated by any born again, Gospel believing , and Jesus Holy Spirit residing in his/her heart Christian. We must realize that no man, no church, no organization can assure you of your redemption except through the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. Not the Catholic Church, not sacraments, not Mary, not the dead saints, not any evangelical/Pentecostal denomination, or any power on earth will assure you of a place at the marriage supper of the Lamb. Our Lord will not be replaced with any mere man/woman or church on the face of the earth. Paul spoke of our personal responsibility for assuring our own salvation, and it is through the acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior when he wrote in the book of Philippians:
“Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
2:11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”(Philippians 2:9-11)
Did Paul write that your salvation is through any other means except through the blood of our Savior? No, Paul makes no mention of it, as it is not found in the Bible anywhere, accept Jesus saying "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man cometh to the Father, but by ME." So any other way is simply a LIE. But my brethren, what church organization has promoted these lies for over a 1700 years plus that the only way to God, is through their church? Correct, the Roman Catholic Church is that antithesis of all things that God ordained through His Son, Jesus Christ. Of itself, it is Anti-Christ.
I spoke of stealth in the first part of this commentary message, that one organization has gone fairly silent in recent years directly, but has used deception and the resurgence of it’s goal of a “one world religion” drawing all religions including the Far East religions of mysticism and pagan worship. Don’t believe me? I ask that you read the following article sent to me by a dear brother of my online congregation through the link below, (copy and paste if the link doesn’t work)
It’s titled The Jesuit Agenda and the Evangelical/Protestant Church.
In this article, you will see that the agenda of the Catholic church is well and alive through men such as Rick Warren, Kenneth Copeland and their cohorts, and the emerging church. Steeped with idolatry and mysticism, they do the bidding of the “mother church” and the secret Jesuit society. You see it on TV..."Come back to the Mother Church"...you mean like One World Church? No, thank you, I gave at the office.
We as Christians must understand that we are not to judge the world, as our Lord and Savior will judge according to His Word, but that does not apply to things that are heretical within our own ranks and the preaching of the Kingdom of God by His true church as I quoted what Paul the apostle said to the Corinthians.
All one has to do is review the history of the Roman Catholic Church and how it has subverted the Gospel to its own enrichment, the sins of the clergy and the pope, and the continued practice of false doctrine and debauchery that is the modern Roman Catholic Church. Can anyone say “pedophile priest?” Some say, "Oh, that was the past, It's not happening today". Oh, really? So you give them a pass with their historic examples of debauchery and murder? Did you realize that this last pope moved around pedophile priest to prevent the church paying out money in lawsuits? He basically hid them out and they continued to be priest and child molesters. Is this Christ-like and from the supreme “leader” of the religion???
HISTORY OF THE 'CHURCH' IN VIEW
The history of the Catholic Church, from its Rome headquarters, has been one of blood and domination. We read of popes who were the most hideous of sinful men that claimed the authority of God Almighty and whosoever disagreed with their edicts were either excommunicated, or worse, slain from a thousand different methods of torture of a thousand knives and execution. Read about their extermination of any protestant religions who just wanted to worship God in their own way, such as so-called heretical sects like Cathars, Waldensians and Lollards were brutally suppressed in Western Europe, while, at the same time, Catholic Christians lived side-by-side with 'schismatic' Orthodox Christians after the East-West Schism in the borderlands of Eastern Europe. I know you will say, that’s the past. But I’m aghast when I read the modern recent position that the Catholic church took against helpless Jewish people during WW2 and basically aligning itself with Nazi Germany and blessing their swastika symbol as a symbol to be revered, and/or, feared. The power and domination of the Church in Rome has dwindled in the last 200 years, but if any power arise that seeks domination of the earth, it’s a safe bet that the Church in Rome will do it’s bidding to be at the table of the power brokers. It’s their history, it’s their entire focus of a One World Religion headed by one religious authority, called the Vicar of Christ, their “god on earth”. In itself, the title is outright blasphemy. The Church in Rome will arise again, but only for a short few years, before she is destroyed in judgment. Mark my word.
TRUE CHRISTIANS MUST BE WARNED
One of the greatest dangers to Christianity today is the deliberate suppression of biblical truth for the sake of unity. The danger intensifies as we see many highly visible and influential Christians are jumping on the Vatican’s ecumenical bandwagon. Instead of warning believers that this false unity is the emergence of the "last days" Laodecian apostate church, evangelicals are embracing and applauding those who are engineering it.
Everyday we see ministers, so called shepherds of the flock, misleading people away from the truths of the Bible. They are seldom exposed, except when their sins find them out, to the glee of the secular media. Jesus warned of such charlatans that are wolves among the sheep.
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. (Matthew 7:15-17)
And Paul when the young and growing church was just beginning warned the people in his ministry in Acts chapter 20:
29 “ For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.”(Acts 20:29-31)
I know what I am writing will offend many who are in this so called “faith” and I don't mean to condemn anyone who follows this religion blindly either by being born into it, or somehow embracing it as the “church” Jesus founded. But did He really?
This has even come into modern Protestant churches who believe that the Catholic Church is holy. It is indeed disturbing to see so many folks that are blinded by the deception that goes on in these modern Protestant churches that do the bidding of the “mother church” to draw all religions into one common, all powerful religious state. They have been working steadily at bringing “departed brothers” back into the faith, or the “holy mother church”. When Pope John Paul II was alive, he promoted the following:
In his 1995 encyclical Et Unum Sint, Pope John Paul II said he intends "to promote every suitable initiative...to increase the unity of all Christians until they reach full communion" and "to encourage the efforts of all who work for the cause of unity." The pope’s stated desire is "to gather all people and all things into Christ, so as to be for all—an inseparable sacrament of unity... expressed in the common celebration of the Eucharist." During a week of prayer for Christian unity Pope John Paul II said, "I gladly take this opportunity to call the attention of all believers to the ecumenical commitment that marked VC II. The council rightly defined the division among Christians as a scandal. The council Fathers felt the need to beg pardon of God and of their brethren for the sins committed against unity." He asked Catholics "to cultivate an authentic spiritual ecumenism" through the Virgin Mary [not through the Lord Jesus??].
I quote now from an article I read concerning the papacy’s sole intent of uniting all religions under one authority, the Church in Rome:
“As we watch the Vatican we can see a seductive strategy for uniting all Christians. They masterfully and deliberately redefine biblical terms to make them more vague, ambiguous and acceptable to both Catholics and Protestants. An example of this is the 1999 Lutheran-Roman Catholic "Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification." In the declaration, Rome uses equivocal and indefinite words to affirm the doctrine of "justification by faith alone" but, at the same time, continues to affirm the anathema’s that condemn all who believe this doctrine. We must not be misled. Rome has not changed its position on things that really matter! Instead they take advantage of professing Christians who lack discernment or who are unwilling to contend for "the faith." (The Pope's Push for a One-World Religion by Mike Gendron)”
I would go a step further than making doctrine acceptable to Catholics and Protestants alike. They are wooing all major religions to their altar of servitude. Religions such as Islam, Hinduism, Shintoism, and every –ism even pagans out there that are a religion to the people and bring them under one big religious tent, with the power of the papacy in supreme control in religious affairs.
One Word Government, One World Religion
We now see a push for a One World government due to global economic upheaval. Many elites are planning the demise of the capitalistic model of free enterprise and promoting a “new world order.” How this new system shakes out and what will be the catalyst to making the kings of the earth to demand a one world system, is for prophecy in the near future. The stage is set, the actors are being put in place, and all we need is to light the fuse to send the world into utter chaos, even more so than it already is.
John spoke of this period of time that we are fast drawing down to, know as the “end of days”.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters
17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” (Revelation 17:1-2)
John speaks of a woman, when identified, it stands for a religious entity upon the earth. In this case, the woman is a harlot, meaning that she does not serve the true God, but prostitutes herself to false gods and false doctrine and misleads the people into idolatry.
17:3 “ So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:”(Revelation 17:3-4)
I submit to you, that through the ages since Jesus was ascended to the right hand of the Father, has no other religious body that calls themselves “Christian” perverted scripture to their own enrichment and their own lust for power. Any encyclopedia will affirm that only one religious body of paramount whoredom has committed the sins John mentions here…yes, the Roman Catholic Church. In the past, I have equated them with what Paul fought in his epistles of those he called Gnostics who had “secret knowledge” not found in Scripture. What religion has drummed up “traditions” that are not found in God's Word anywhere? Of course, the Roman Catholic Church who could be modern Gnostics. They hold their traditions and the edicts of the pope above clear commands of Holy Scripture. It is designed to promote the power of the church, and debase the authority of God’s Holy Word as secondary to their authority. Blasphemy of the most severe.
5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.”( Revelation 17:5-6)
Reader, how many people have been slain in the name of the Roman Catholic Church down through the last 2000 years??….Millions, tens of millions? The number and the atrocity of the sins of the Church in Rome rises like a stench in the nostrils of God. Read your history.
In this chapter of Revelation, John goes onto describe the Beast power that arises during the last 7 years, called Daniel’s 70th week. You see how this harlot rides the beast and is joined to its power and uses her influence to support and defend the Beast power and it’s administration. Finally, when the Beast is done with her, she is destroyed by fire.
15 “ And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.(Revelation 17:15-17)
In Revelation 17, the Woman is controlling the Beast, bringing about its worship. But, she and the Beast are antagonists competing against each other. Furthermore, she is heavily involved in politics (influencing kings), manufacturing, shipping, craftsmanship, and merchandising
The Woman indeed has a relationship with the Beast, but she is not part of the politics, economics, religion, or military of the Beast, at least, not directly. She and the Beast are separate entities, even though both are part of the overall One World system. The Catholic Church has always been part of the Beast, influencing it from within. Conversely, the Woman is portrayed as an external influence, competing with, riding, and at some point exercising control of the Beast.
How this harlot will be destroyed by fire is conjecture on anybodies part, but a nuclear blast would destroy all of Rome and the Vatican estate that resides there.
What Time is it?
Many in the Catholic church hierarchy and the leaders within have reported that after this pope, Pope Benedict XVI finished his “reign” over the Catholic Church, that the next pope will be an apostate. From Wikipedia, we read about what is said about this last pope. In one of my messages I went over this prophecy of St. Malachy and was little puzzled about the selection of this pope...one called Francis....It was predicted it would be possibly several other men and that the new pope would take the name Pius....I wondered if "Is this the pope we were looking for, the False Prophet"? But in investigating this man further and settling down to who this man is, at first I thought, he looks so grandfatherly, so humble, and he's definitely OLD. How could he be the prophesied "false prophet". That is until I had several member of the congregation online email me from all over the planet filling me in about this man and supplying information about his past.
1. His given surname is Peitro "peter"
2. His family immigrated to Argentina from Italy..hence he's Roman
3. and most disturbing, he has long been a member of the Society of Jesus, Jesuits.
4. The author’s of Petrus Romanus that I have been reading, agree that his pedigree fits, Peter the Roman.
From Wikipedia online:
Bergoglio studied at the archdiocesan seminary Inmaculada Concepción in Villa Devoto,Buenos Aires City, and after three years entered the Society of Jesus on 11 March 1958.
Father Bergoglio completed his final stage of spiritual formation as a Jesuit, tertianship, atAlcalá de Henares, Spain, and took his perpetual vows in the Society of Jesus on 22 April 1973. He was named Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus in Argentina on 31 July 1973 and served until 1979. After the completion of his term of office, in 1980 he was named the rector of the seminary in San Miguel (it is unclear which one), and served in that capacity until 1986. He spent several months at the Sankt Georgen Graduate School of Philosophy and Theology in Frankfurt, Germany, while considering possible dissertation topics, before returning to Argentina to serve as a confessor and spiritual director to the Jesuit community in Córdoba.
Now noting the above article and their determination to make all religions bow to the pope, under any means at their disposal should give each of us pause. Again, I am reminded of the verse in Revelation 13, concerning his demeanor and first impression:
13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” (Revelation 13:11-12)
This present leader of the Catholic Church has pushed hard for a “new World Order”in the U.N. Anywhere he speaks to those who listen and those who follow blindly he promotes a one world religion.. Below is just some of the outrageous, blasphemous statements that this man has made in the name of his “church”.
>Pope Francis Unveils Globalist New World Religion at Summit with United Nations Leader.
>Pope Francis Declares That Christian Fundamentalists Are “A Scourge”
>Pope Francis: Christianity Welcomes Pagans but They Must ‘Reject Idolatry’(but what religion has more idols inside their churches than does this one?)
>Globalist Pope Francis calls for new ‘supranational’ authorities that would to rule countries and enforce UN goals (called Sustainable Development and Agenda 2030 or the control of every man and woman on the planet) Go here if you would like to know what Sustainable Development is and the U.N. Vision for this planet in Agenda 2030 and the Pope is pushing for:
>Pope Francis Endorses Essay Trashing U.S. Conservative Christians
>Pope Rejects ‘Excessive Demand for Sovereignty’, Pushes Idea of Global Authority
>The Pope And Islam’s Most Important Imam Just Signed A Covenant That Pushes Us Much Closer To A One World Religion
>Pope: Christians murdered by Muslims are testament to God’s plan for peaceful coexistence of Christians and Muslims
>Pope Francis: ‘There Is No Hell’ Those who don't believe will just disappear.
>Pope Francis ‘paving way for Antichrist’
>Pope Francis: World Government Must Rule U.S. ‘For Their Own Good’
>12 Times Pope Francis Has Openly Promoted A One World Religion Or A New World Order
I could go on and on what this man has said confirming his belief in a New World Order and One World Religion....if you wish to see more of these outrageous statements and commentary, go to this site:
As mentioning a warning before, don't be fooled by the man's demeanor and his seemly grandfatherly front speaking words that soothe and even salting it with the name Jesus. No, look at his actions and if they are in line with scripture, because if he be the man, then he will say words you want to hear, but "metaphorically" crossing his fingers behind his back. Meaning, he means nothing he says, but to deceive. Using his Jesuit upbringing in this church, he will demand conformity.
I warn every truly converted Christian man or woman, to make yourself familiar with the commands of scripture. Be an informed Berean. As mentioned in Acts
17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:1)
Although I believe that this “pope” is laying the groundwork for the coming “New World Order” he may not be the man to usher it in...it is noted that Pope Francis Secretary General is the real power behind the papacy and could be the next pope to take the helm of the Catholic Church. One can only watch and wait to see.
If a Christian takes it upon himself to read his bible, he will not be deceived with “traditions of the church” or any doctrine that is contrary to the Word of God. I beseech each and everyone of you to put on the whole armor of God, as the spirit world is growing more active with each passing day.
6:11 “ Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;(Ephesians 6:11-18)
I pray for my younger brother, who puts his trust in an organization, not his Lord and Savior to keep him on the straight and narrow path that leads to life. When this world approaches the tribulation, I would pray that each of you, including my brother, would take the Word of God in hand and search its pages to find if these things be true.
THE RAPTURE BRINGS A NEW WORLD ORDER AT WARP SPEED
I spoke earlier of a catalyst, a fuse that would ignite the call for a One World Government, and a One World Religion. Everything is in place, the actors are stage left, stage right and are ready to begin their short act of the last seven years of mankind’s attempt to govern himself. What might that catalyst be? If suddenly upwards of a few million to tens of millions of people suddenly vanish off the surface of this planet, such an economic collapse that we only envision will happen at lightning speed. The call for calm and a ruling body to restore order will be set in motion almost immediately to prevent anarchy and chaos. I believe that the removal of the church saints from this earth, to meet Jesus in the air, will be the most catastrophic event to come to this planet until Jesus comes and destroys all rebellion with the War of Armageddon. Men will search for answers, reasons, and to be comforted that all is well. It is said that the one thing that would unite this world into one solid unit is an “ALIEN INVASION” from another planet. Hence, they will explain it away.
Enter stage right, the One World Government, and enter stage left, the beginning of the One World Religion headed by the False Prophet and the Roman Catholic church, in that order. Hold onto your seat, my brother, as the ride could get real bumpy before the Father says, “It is enough. Go get my children”.
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18)
8 “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”(Romans 10:8-13)
As I watch the development stage of world events, I am amazed at how fast things are shaping up and coming into view of Biblical Prophecy. The Lord Jesus could come at any given time, so be ready and not found following any other than the Lord Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life.
MARANATHA, SO COME LORD JESUS!!

God help us: On the brink of WWIII and the Antichrist Kingdom - By Scott Lively - https://www.wnd.com/2023/05/god-help-us-brink-wwiii-antichrist-kingdom/
Ever since I began studying prophecy seriously at a scholarly level in early 2011, I have been persuaded that ours is the last generation of the Age of the Gentiles and that our experience as Christians in the temporal world would increasingly mirror that of the first generation in the Age of the Apostles, ending under the modern equivalent of a deeply evil and corrupt Roman military dictatorship (the Antichrist Kingdom) so total in its control that Jesus' command regarding daily life within it was/is to display humble submission regarding worldly matters as a means of evangelizing through the witness of Christian service.
He knew that any thoughts of overthrowing the Romans by worldly means during His first advent were futile. Instead of telling Christians to push back against the gross infringements on their God-given personal liberties, He said they must, for example, carry a soldier's cloak 2 miles instead of the then legally mandated 1 mile when asked. But in regard to eternal matters they must accept death rather than recant their faith in Him (Revelation 12:11). That context will be fully repeated when the last generation of this age begins facing the demand by the Antichrist government to take "the Mark of the Beast."
Clearly, we're not quite at that level of tyranny yet; however, my biblical studies and attentive observations of world events have increasingly reinforced my belief that we have reached at least the season of the end, if not the final months or year. Indeed, the seeming imminence of the prophesied Antichrist Kingdom now looms so ominously that even many secular people now believe the end is near – even as they cling to the notion that its tyranny can and will be prevented by political activism if we just get unified and organized.
I'd very much like to believe that restoration is possible through activism because I've lived virtually my entire adult live as a Christian soldier in the culture war. BUT, having seen the evil elites stage their global plandemic and American election-fraud coup, all to prevent Donald Trump from serving a second term in the White House, I realize there is nothing they will not do to stay in power. Nothing.
These evil elite one-worlders naturally want to preserve as much key infrastructure of civilization as possible (including a deluded, compliant populace), so they are limiting their actions to just what is necessary to achieve their plans and hiding their actions behind curtains of propaganda the best they can (while at the same time taunting and mocking those of us who are awakened to the realities – trying to provoke us to violence to justify police-state crackdowns). But, if they believe it necessary, they will simply drop the pretenses, burn everything to the ground and start over from scratch rather than let us win. Their Ukraine proxy war is all queued up at the World War III starting line to provide any degree of worldwide destruction they deem necessary, including total annihilation of entire countries.
Putting this back in the historic Roman context, America today is still a far cry from the Roman Empire in the Age of the Apostles. Our merciless abortion culture hasn't reached the level of unwanted born babies being routinely abandoned by the roadside in the practice of "exposure." Today's persecution of constitutionalist Christians by tyrannical government falls far short of Emperor Nero dipping our spiritual forbears in oil and burning them alive as entertainment for his party guests.
But we're pretty close to Roman levels of sexual depravity, which is the cultural lubricant that always greases the societal slide to hell on earth: the secret ingredient in the devil's recipe for spiritual conquest of humanity by the use of physical world wars (which is why "wars and rumors of wars" is the first clue Jesus told us to look for in his chronology of end time events in the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24-25).
Importantly, both world wars in the modern world involved reiterations of the Roman Empire, more particularly the "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation," also known as the First Reich (A.D. 800-1806). (This is the source of Hitler's boast that his Nazi regime would be a "thousand-year Reich.")
And both world wars were preceded by rampant sexual depravity, including particularly homosexuality, which the Europeans called "Germany's National Vice," providing German Jew Samuel Igra the title for his 1945 book exposing what he called the "poisoned stream" of homosexuality in German history, triggering WWI and facilitating WWII.
Few Americans realize that the modern homosexual movement first became a significant political power in Germany during the Second Reich, under the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm I who was also simultaneously King Frederick III of Prussia, grandson of the notorious homosexual Frederick the Great. ("Kaiser" is the German spelling of "Ceasar.") According to Igra, Wilhelm I's son, Kaiser Wilhelm II became so fully ensnared in seven years of public litigation over homosexual scandals that he deliberately orchestrated World War I to finally divert public attention from his domestic woes. My book "The Poisoned Stream" includes an exhaustive review of Germany's National Vice, augmented by extensive documentation not available to Igra at the time he wrote it.
Better known, but still not common knowledge was the centrality of homosexuality to Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, which Orthodox Jewish historian Kevin E. Abrams and I documented in our book "The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party," now in its 5th Edition.
Essential to that story is the sexual depravity of the post-WWI Weimar period in Germany during which the Nazi Party rose to prominence. It was also in Socialist Weimar Germany in the early 1920s that the claim was first made that homosexual sodomy was a "human right." Indeed, a seed from that poisonous tree was first planted here in America by German-American soldier Henry Gerber who launched the first U.S. LGBT entity, in Chicago, Dec. 10, 1924, as a chapter of the German-based Society for Human Rights (before being arrested for sex with teen boys).
So here we are today in our own Weimar moral cesspool, perched on the brink of WWIII, which would seem to be the perfect Satanic vehicle for bringing in the "beginning of sorrows." Looming before us is the prospect of the tyranny of the Antichrist Kingdom, the Fourth Reich, the unholy final iteration of the Roman Empire. God help us.

Human Implanted Microchips Back In The Spotlight – PNW Staff - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=6063
Human implanted microchips are back in the news after biotech company Blackrock Neurotech, based in Salt Lake City announced this week it has already implanted brain chips in dozens of patients.
'We are the only company with direct-brain BCI implants in humans,' Marcus Gerhardt, Blackrock's co-founder, told DailyMail.com.
'Our implantable arrays have enabled people to connect directly to computers, control robotic arms and wheelchairs, play video games, even regain sensation - with just their brain signals.
Blackrock's technology uses an implantable microchip that has 96 arrays -- small needle-shaped brain chips that can read and stimulate electrical signals.
It can be placed anywhere on the brain's surface. Multiple devices can be placed on the same person's brain.
After implantation, the chip detects electrical signals generated by the wearer's thoughts.
Machine learning software decodes these signals into digital commands such as cursor movements, which can be used to control prosthetics and computer equipment.
The company is now seeking FDA approval for devices built for use outside the lab and to be used at home.
Tech mogul Elon Musk has also launched similar plans with Neurolink, an implantable device he hopes can be brought to market in the near future.
The use of microchip implants to biohack our body is nothing new and the applications are already numerous and growing.
Today, more than 50,000 people have elected to have a subdermal chip surgically inserted between the thumb and index finger, to serve as their new swipe key, or credit card.
Tech company Walletmor has developed a new app called Purewrist, which is a digital wallet combined with a microchip that can be installed in your hand. Once the chip is installed, a person can then use the app and chip to make payments to businesses that also use the app.
Walletmore's chip is quite light and is only a bit bigger than a grain of rice and is composed of a microchip and an antenna, which is surrounded by biopolymer. The Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Wojtek Paprota claims that it is entirely safe and also has regulatory approval.
Walletmore has priced the implant procedure at $299 and says the system can be used to make everyday, normal transactions.
"The implant can be used to pay for a drink on the beach in Rio, a coffee in New York, a haircut in Paris - or at your local grocery store," founder and chief executive Wojtek Paprota said in a statement to the BBC. "It can be used wherever contactless payments are accepted."
The microchip does not need a battery to function nor does it need any other power source which makes it quite attractive to the users.
A 2021 survey conducted in the European Union and the United Kingdom came up with the result that at least 51 per cent of people will consider having a chip implanted in their body.
On the other side of Europe Sweden has been rapidly expanding it's use of microchip technology for quite some time with tens of thousands already microchipped:
Notes and coins now make up less than 1 percent of Sweden's economy which is ironic considering it was the first European country to issue modern banknotes, in 1661.
"No cash accepted" signs are now the norm in shops across Sweden as payments go digital and mobile but many Swedes want to take it to the next level as they blend tech with the human body.
Microchip implants that give people the ability to conduct financial transactions, monitor their health (including vaccination status) and even replace keycards to allow them to enter offices and buildings are the new rage as thousands have already been implanted.
Many technological enthusiasts believe this is the next logical step in a digital society that is quite happy to give up privacy for convenience. That convenience factor is a big reason commuters on the SJ Rail transit system have traded cash for chips:
Many Bible Prophecy experts believe each of these steps is taking us closer to global acceptance of a digital "mark" commonly called "The Mark of the Beast" that will merge technology and commerce with political and religious allegiance as described in the Book of Revelation.
Most Christians recognize that current chip implants are not the actual "mark of the beast", yet there is concern that acceptance of such technology is conditioning people for when the real one does come along.
What often starts off as voluntary can just as easily become mandatory and whereas tech itself may be neutral, in the hands of the wrong person it could be extremely dangerous. Imagine the technology of today in the hands of Hitler.
There are also growing fears that an economic collapse and "currency reset" could bring about an era of forced digital cash that would be necessary to conduct commerce. Digital cash with biometric practicality would seem to make a perfect union for convenience and security.
Christians have long debated the meaning of the "mark of the beast". Our generation, however, appears to be the first to have the technology to fulfill this prophecy.
Soon, you may have to answer the question: 'would you get chipped'?
Wokeism Begins with Devaluing the Words of Scripture – Jonathan Brentner - https://www.jonathanbrentner.com/https/jonathan-brentner-g8fgsquarespacecom/config/2023/5/2/wokeism-begins-with-demeaning-the-words-scripture
Several years ago, I spent a lengthy lunchtime with a pastor explaining the biblical necessity for the Lord to restore a glorious kingdom to the nation of Israel. The words on the pages of Scripture didn’t matter to him because of his predetermined way of retrofitting them into His covenant theology. He criticized my beliefs as being out of step with the “popular” trends in the church. He pointed to Andy Stanley, a well-known pastor from Atlanta, as an example of someone’s beliefs I should copy.
I think about that conversation with my former pastor whenever I hear reports regarding Stanley’s lack of respect for the Bible.
Responding to criticism regarding a sermons series, “The Bible Told Me So,” Stanley made this comment:
I wanted educated, dechurched millennials to know that I knew that those who supposedly know everything are convinced there was no worldwide flood or Hebrew migration from Egypt. While addressing them directly, I gave them the benefit of the doubt to make the following point: Even if those events never occurred, it does nothing to undermine the evidence supporting the resurrection of Jesus and thus the claims he made about himself.
It's admirable that he wants to reach millennials with the Gospel, but at what price? Is he forgetting that Jesus verified such events? How does one reconcile Jesus’ claim to be God with His supposed mistaken views regarding the flood and Moses? To give the unsaved the “benefit of the doubt” regarding events that Jesus confirmed during His ministry undermines His credibility as a Savior. How can it not?
In a recent video, Tom Hughes quoted Andy Stanley as saying, “I’m really on a crusade to help the church specifically step back away from a text-based faith.”
Pastor Hughes then asked, “What text? Is he saying we must step away from a Bible-based faith? He’s already said that ‘we must unhitch ourselves from the Old Testament.’”
Stanley’s statements regarding the Bible puts the purity of the Gospel on dangerous ground and initiates a downward slide that can only lead to Wokeism.
THE PROBLEM OF SEPARATING JESUS FROM HIS WORDS
Stanley’s statements separate Jesus from His Word, which is exactly the stance of churches steeped in Wokeism. Many professing Christians proclaim their allegiance to Jesus, but maintain social beliefs radically opposed to what Jesus taught about marriage, gender, and God’s creation of men and women, just to name a few issues.
In John 12:47-49, Jesus said this about the close connection between Himself and His words:
If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day. For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak.
In Matthew 24:35 He asserted, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”
The woke culture that’s invaded many churches thrives on promoting a Jesus that’s far different from the One we read about in the New Testament, which always happens when a church moves “away from a text-based faith.” It’s always a problem when churches distance Jesus from what He said.
The words of Scripture matter. Once one accepts a different meaning for what Jesus said or what the authors of the Bible wrote, it opens the door to error and eventually Wokeism.
WOKEISM FEEDS OFF A FALSE VIEW OF JESUS
By separating Jesus from His words, Stanley allows people to respond to a false message concerning Him. How can that be good?
Wokeism feeds off a false view of Jesus. How can we accept the possibility of error on His part without undermining our faith and values?
In Romans 10:17, Paul wrote, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Saving faith comes as a result of hearing the Gospel. Can that happen when one allows a false view of Jesus to prevail in the ears of the hearers?
Stanley says that for the sake of argument, he’s willing to concede that events, ones Jesus clearly affirmed throughout His ministry, might not have happened because such a concession doesn’t diminish the reality of the resurrection. Really? How does he intend preach that although Jesus claimed to be God and believed things that were not true, He still saves because He rose from the dead? That doesn’t sound too convincing to me.
Furthermore, pastors of woke churches often affirm a belief in the resurrection of Jesus and use the same words we do to describe it. However, if one listens carefully, it becomes clear that they don’t believe in a bodily resurrection.
I also heard Stanley say that we don’t believe in the resurrection because of Scripture, but because we have the witnesses of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. This is double-speak; apart from the Bible, we don’t have these testimonies to Jesus’ resurrection.
THE DOWNWARD PATH
Once pastors allow compromises regarding the words of Scripture, they lead the church along a dangerous road that over time, leads to the gradual acceptance of the cancel culture of today.
Below are some steps along this downward path:
1. It most often begins with the use of allegory (spiritual/symbolical interpretations) to retrofit God’s promises to restore a glorious kingdom to Israel so that they apply to the church.
2. Rather than take the words of the biblical authors at face value, they apply God’s covenants with Israel to the church making it God’s physical kingdom on earth.
3. Although the proponents of this viewpoint maintain the inerrancy and inspiration of Scripture, over time their allegorical approach to prophecy spreads and begins chipping away at the integrity of other biblical texts.
4. In the case of Pastor Stanley, he proclaimed that the church must “specifically step back away from a text-based faith.” Is this not a giant step at eroding confidence in the Bible?
5. Stanley progressed further down this path when praised the faith of homosexuals who claim to be Christ-followers while at the same time discounting the importance of passages that refer to its practice as sin.
My point is this: the use of allegory to reinterpret the words of biblical prophecy devalues the words of biblical prophecy and given enough time, leads to compromises with the world and the acceptance of its values. In the near-term, it leads to a denial of what the Bible says about the Rapture and an avoidance of talking about our “blessed hope.”
In Ephesians 2:19-20, the Apostle Paul tells us that we “are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone.” The entire New Testament is the foundation of the church and as such, we dare not mess with it.
“PREACH THE WORD”
In 2 Timothy 4:1-4, Paul instructs Timothy to “preach the word” in contrast to those who “will not endure sound teaching.” The proclamation of God’s Word is the antidote to errant teaching and to a sound view of future things.
Some might ask, “Who cares if someone regards the church as heir to the kingdom promises of the Old Testament? Is that not an incidental belief that interferes with reaching the lost?”
The problem is this: One can’t arrive at such a conclusion based on the words of Scripture. One must retrofit the meaning of its words through allegory to in order to believe that the church represents God’s kingdom on earth rather than Jesus’ reign during the Millennium as recorded in Revelation 20:1-10. Words matter!
How can we not sound the alarm when perhaps the most skilled and influential “evangelical” preacher in America, Andy Stanley, seeks to move the church away from its foundation upon the Word of God?
As Pastor Tom Hughes stated in his video referring to Stanley’s desire to move the church away from its moorings, “This is bad; this is really bad!” I agree!
As a small boy many years ago, I jumped to my feet while singing, “I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E.” That’s remains my passion and the reason for all that I write.
It’s all about Jesus! The One who rose from the dead predicted that a time of great Tribulation would come upon the world and His words are coming to life everywhere we look. The one who promised that His disciples would rule over Israel in His future kingdom will most certainly keep His promise (Matthew 19:28).
Daily Jot: An object lesson in handling persecution - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The website and app called Nextdoor (ND) claims its mission is “By bringing neighbors and organizations together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on.” Further the site claims “Neighbors around the world turn to Nextdoor daily to receive trusted information, give and get help, get things done, and build real-world connections with those nearby–neighbors, businesses, and public services. We believe connecting with others is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighborhoods are among the most important communities in our lives, have been guiding principles for Nextdoor since the beginning.” Yet, Nextdoor censors truth and religious speech.
Nextdoor boasts “305,000 members, 1 in three US households” to “Share critical, real-time information directly at the neighborhood level.” Nextdoor, stresses kindness on its site. So what about those who Nextdoor disagrees with? A good friend of mine, Randy F from Texas, posted a recent Daily Jot about the arming of IRS agents and other government agencies and how that is a threat to your freedom of speech and religious freedom. It was promptly removed. The ensuing conversation revealed much. Randy was told: “There’s absolutely no reason for you to start your first post with an explanation of how to say God or why do you [use a] certain term for God. Plus your whole rant in that post is a debunked conspiracy theory about the IRS which I personally take offense to but that being said you might review your sources.
“Leave your religion out of this and please remove the quote at the bottom, “It’s getting to a point where the choice will be clear as it was to Peter and the Apostles in Acts 5:29, “We ought to obey God rather than men.” That is our true liberty.” Randy asked “Who are you? Are you with ND? This is freedom of speech. Are you trying to censor it?” The reply: “I was just pointing out that your constant references to religion in the main feed were offensive take that however you wish as a user of the site. I thought it would be better to speak to you in private about the issue rather than discussing it in the main feed. Have a great day.” Randy boldly pushed back saying that this person did censor him and that the post was just the truth, ending with “I will pray for you.”
This was the second post of Randy’s that was removed in the past 10 days. The Daily Jot doesn’t tell anyone how to say “God.” It states what the Jot means when referring to God. Next, arming the IRS was confirmed by the Director of the IRS, it is not a conspiracy theory, and the arming of other agencies is also documented by reliable sources. The ND moderator was admittedly personally offended by the facts as well as the references to religion and the quoting of scripture. Christ said in Matthew 24:9 that believers “shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.” Examples like this demonstrate how that hate will take place, even under the veil of “kindness.” Randy’s example of not getting angry, but boldly educating and showing love through prayer is a strong response. Eventually, the post was reposted.
Daily Devotion: Fruit Production - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father —John 15:8
One of the first things we do as Christians is produce spiritual fruit. Jesus said, “When you produce much fruit, you are my true disciples. This brings great glory to my Father” (John 15:8 NLT). If we are really disciples of Jesus, then we will have spiritual fruit, or evidence, in our lives.
For example, you stop doing sinful things and instead do godly things. That will intrigue some people in your life, and it might even perplex them. But it’s one way to produce spiritual fruit.
Another way is to give praise and thanks to God. Hebrews 13:15 tells us, “Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to his name” (NLT). When you’re in church singing praises to God, that is producing spiritual fruit.
A change in your conduct and character is also spiritual fruit. The Bible tells us, “But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!” (Galatians 5:22–23 NLT).
However, spiritual fruit doesn’t grow overnight. For instance, you wouldn’t pull up a chair in front of a fruit tree and just sit there waiting for fruit to appear. Of course, you could do that, but you wouldn’t see anything.
But if you were to set up a camera with time-lapse photography in front of that tree, you would see dramatic growth. The same is true with spiritual growth. We may not see any changes happening because it takes time. We need to start by saying, “I want to take up the cross daily and follow Jesus because I want to find the life God has for me.”
And we will find our purpose and meaning in life by putting God first.
