What’s Really Going On: Sinai, Bali and Crypto

You might want to check out Pastor JD Farag’s latest Bible prophecy update from Sunday November 20th (link below). Everything is coming together for the new world order from the COP 27 new 10 Commandments that the religions of the world just established at Sinai this past weekend with the blessing of the Pope after smashing the Lord’s 10 Commandments; to the new crypto digital currency that is more speedily coming together according to a news report this past Tuesday; to the requirement of the vaccine passport for international travel signed by 20 nations in Bali this past Wednesday.

Regarding the G20 at Bali, “The leaders from 20 countries at the recent G20 Summit signed a declaration which states they agree to adopt vaccine passports to “facilitate” all international travel.The current membership of the G20 accounts for more than 66 percent of the world’s population and includes Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States, and European Union. The two-day summit concluded in Bali, Indonesia yesterday and consisted of talks between the G20 member countries. Klaus Schwab, World Economic Forum (WEF) Chair, also attended. The G20 Bali Leaders’ Declaration, signed by leaders from all the countries…” (“World Leaders Agree to Implement Vaccine Passports,” https://lc.org/newsroom/details/111722-world-leaders-agree-to-implement-vaccine-passports-1)

Most importantly, here’s Pastors JD’s timely message!!! Painted into the Prophetic Corner,” message by Pastor JD, https://www.jdfarag.org/bible-prophecy?sapurl=LytkNmtjL2xiL21pLytkNHZrMjZqP2VtYmVkPXRydWUmcmVjZW50Um91dGU9YXBwLndlYi1hcHAubGlicmFyeS5tZWRpYS1zZXJpZXMmcmVjZW50Um91dGVTbHVnPSUyQjgyeXhwOGY=

The signs are everywhere. The time clock is winding down speedily. This is yet another warning that the time is almost up, and we as Christians must be busy about our Lord’s business. Let us not be weary in well doing, for in the end we will reap a harvest if we faint not! (Galatians 6:9) Let us strengthen each other, lifting up the hands that hang down and the feeble knees (Hebrews 12:12-13), and stir one another’s faith, building each other up (1 Thessalonians 5:11) as times get tougher and as the day of the Lord draws nearer.

We must remain vigilant and not downplay our role in the final seconds. Are you an unemployed dad trying to find work and fighting discouragement? – shake it off in Jesus’ name and be the best dad you can be! Are you feeling that you’re ONLY a mom – stop believing that lie, and be the best mom! Are you a janitor – be the best janitor! Are you an American called to be a missionary but there’s been no opening or not enough finances? – don’t forget that we in America live in a mission field. Do you have a college degree but can’t find any other employment other than in a retail store – then be the best employee! Are you an entrepreneur – then be the best entrepreneur!

And by “the best” I mean do it God’s way, honestly and humbly, and do it for the Lord, to please Him and no one else. “And whatsoever you do in word or deed do in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him…And whatsoever you do do it heartily as to the Lord and not unto men!” Colossians 3:17, 23

Do you feel overwhelmed by what God has you doing? Remember he uses the weak and foolish things in this world for His glory. The story of Moses is key regarding this truth. Exodus 4:10-12 states, “And Moses said unto the Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since Thou hast spoken unto thy servant. But I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue. And the Lord said unto him, Who hath made man’s mouth? Or why maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? Have not I the Lord? Now therefore, Go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.”

In all our roles may we not forget that we are first and foremost “ambassadors of Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20) and citizens of an eternal Kingdom that is now in our hearts and coming soon (Luke 17:21; Matthew 6:10; Ephesians 2:19; Hebrews 11:9-10). And He is the One who empowers us to will and to do His great pleasure (Philippians 2:13).

And finally remember Philippians 2 wherein we hear of Jesus who was equal with God yet humbled Himself and became the servant of all. He was royalty, yet became a slave. He was wisest, but simply served. He was exalted, yet humbled Himself. So, never think you are too good for something or not good enough. Get your eyes off of yourself, and turn your eyes upon Jesus. Let His heart be in all we are and do.

Jesus is coming SOON! Let’s be ready!

Ever thankful for our Blessed Hope,

What Is Really Going On: Mystery Babylon Rising at Sinai

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The New World, One World Order Religion is rising. Right now. This month. It is a one world religion with a whole new set of 10 commandments being given at Sinai, with a legal system based on Noahide laws, and a strange mixture of Gaia, Mithraism, and Kabbalah. This philosophy is uniting the world religions under one higher power. Mystery Babylon has been forming a long time, spanning centuries in fact, operating mostly behind the scenes, but now it is rising to its prominent place in the sea of nations, and the practitioners of Kabbalah seem to be its driving force. Below are many quotes about what is happening, links to those quotes, as well as my thoughts and perceptions.

Here is a quote taken from the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development website (link listed below), “Between November 6th and 18th, 2022, the UN climate conference COP 27 will take place on the Sinai Peninsula, in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. Religious communities and religious leaders have a key role to play in addressing climate change and climate justice, which requires deep transformation within society…Mount Sinai is a mountain whose memory and meaning loom large as a place of revelation in the collective consciousness of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and others. As an ancient sacred space, it was the site of prophetic experience, and receiving God’s message, for the prophets Moses and Elijah in all three Abrahamic traditions, and the prophet Muhammed in the Muslim tradition. COP 27 taking place in Sinai can remind humanity of our sacred responsibility to care for God’s creation…the project partners will bring together premier religious leaders from the world’s major religions to put forth a prophetic interreligious call to action: “Climate Justice: Ten Universal Commandments.” The call’s originality in compiling the finest teachings of all religions in support of climate justice draws inspiration from the great prophetic figures associated with Mount Sinai. Teachings and spiritual ideals will be highlighted…

This is an event delivered by world religious leaders. At its core is the work of the Elijah Board of World Religious Leaders, an active community of high-level religious leaders. The project partners also seek to involve celebrities who have a track record of climate advocacy.

Founding Partners: The event will be coordinated by a coalition of organizations.

  • The Elijah Interfaith Institute and its Board of World Religious Leaders brings together some of the world’s most prominent religious figures from Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism and the Religions of India
  • The Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development reveals the connection between religion and ecology and mobilizes people to act.
  • The Peace Department is a US non-profit designed to solve global coordination failures by making philanthropy and impact investing effective and scalable.
  • Climate activist Yosef Abramowitz serves as special advisor to the initiative.”

Regarding some of these partners, the Elijah Interfaith Institute states concerning itself (link below), “The spirit of Elijah is wisdom, inspiration, friendship and hope across religious traditions. Elijah deepens understanding among religions. Elijah’s mission is to foster unity in diversity, creating a harmonious world. Elijah’s message: The world’s great religions radiate wisdom that can heal the world. Deep level spiritual conversation across interreligious lines enriches our inner lives, enhances our prayer and opens our hearts. Discover unity and embrace diversity. We are many and we are one.”

Yosef Abramowitz who is listed as a “special adviser” to the initiative is a journalist and a well-respected environmental activist who even hosted a Shabbat dinner party for Kamala Harris and her husband back in 2017. He was raised attending a Solomon Schechter school which teaches (link below), “…that there are 70 faces of the Torah (Bamidbar Rabba 13:16), which is understood to mean that there are countless ways to interpret our sacred texts. It can feel like magic when a word or phrase, with a seemingly singular meaning, suddenly reveals itself to be multi-dimensional and rich in character.” He then went on to become what is called a “Young Judean.” The website of the Young Judeans explains that they are training up the Jewish youth to be activists and social justice defenders.

Abramowitz is married to Susan Silverman, who is an American Reform rabbi. “Reform Judaism, also known as Liberal Judaism or Progressive Judaism, is a major Jewish denomination that emphasizes the evolving nature of the faith, the superiority of its ethical aspects to its ceremonial ones, and belief in a continuous revelation, which is closely intertwined with human reason and not limited to the theophany at Mount Sinai…It is strongly identified with progressive political and social agendas, mainly under the traditional Jewish rubric tikkun olam, or “repairing of the world”. Tikkun olam is a central motto of Reform Judaism, and action for its sake is one of the main channels for adherents to express their affiliation.”

What is Tikkun olam? To be succinct and to the point, tikkun olam stems from and is the goal of Kabbalah. According to Chabad.org, “The Kabbalists taught that the Torah was given so that we could improve not only our own selves, but the entire cosmic order…In our times, the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, described tikkun olam as the mission of every human being. He spoke with a voice of urgency…Tikkun olam is often used exclusively to describe acts of social justice and environmental awareness…And it is certainly vital that we ensure the sustainability of life upon this magnificent stage of creation.”

So, now what is Kabbalah? According to a Reform Jewish Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis (link below), “Kabbalah (also spelled Kabalah, Cabala, Qabala)—sometimes translated as “mysticism” or “occult knowledge—is a part of Jewish tradition that deals with the essence of God…The Zohar, a collection of written, mystical commentaries on the Torah, is considered to be the underpinning of Kabbalah… Kabbalistic thought often is considered Jewish mysticism…

The practical dimension of Kabbalah involves rituals for gaining and exercising power to effect change in our world and in the celestial worlds beyond ours. This power is generated by performing commandments, summoning and controlling angelic and demonic forces, and otherwise tapping into the supernatural energies present in Creation. The practical aspect of Kabbalah furthers God’s intention in the world, advancing good, subduing evil, healing, and mending. The true master of this art fulfills the human potential to be a co-creator with God…”

Furthermore, Kabbalah believes in what is known as Shekinah (also spelled Shechinah). Though there are Christians who use this term thinking it is a biblical one, it is not actually used in the Bible at all, but rather is from Kabbalah. The links below to biblestudytools.com, bibleinfo.com, christianity.com, and biblehub.com prove the point that it is not a biblical term. According to Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary as found at biblehub.com, it is “a term used in the Targums and by the later Jews, and adopted by Christians.” And according to the New Bible Dictionary, 3rd Edition, on page 1090, “The Shekinah… is used by Targumist and Rabbi to signify God himself, for legal Judaism dislikes ascribing form or emotion to deity.” The Targumim were initially Rabbinic oral interpretation and translation and even commentary of the Hebrew Scriptures into Aramaic, which were eventually written down with additional commentary. In other words, this was not the Christian understanding of Scripture, but a non-Christian interpretation.

This Rabbinic Shekinah according to learnkabbalah.com, is one “who never leaves us, the Divine Feminine — in other systems understood as the Goddess — who is with us always and who is, like us sometimes, exiled from her Divine lover, the Holy One. Sefirotically, the Divine name “Holy One, Blessed be He” refers to Tiferet as expressed through Yesod — the active masculine principle, the “sky god” in primitive theology. Erotically, the great motion of the universe is the reunification of the masculine principle and the feminine one…“Sabbath Queen” and “Sabbath Bride”…Some texts of the Kabbalah take precisely this view, even if it may strike us as surprisingly pluralistic. The Zohar, for example, understands even the despised idolatries of Ancient Canaan as merely imprecise in terminology. Asherah-worship, for example, is basically worship of the Shechinah — only with the mistaken notion that Asherah is really a separate being. Indeed, in one of the most shocking passages in the Zohar… Asherah is even a future name of Shechinah herself… Across thousands of years and wide geographical expanses, peoples around the world have experienced the Divine as feminine…She is closest to us. The great Kabbalistic project to restore unity and harmony in the Divine begins with unifying the immanent and the transcendent, or shamayim [heavens] and aretz [earth]. We might also see that project as the essential work of traditional Judaism as a whole: bringing together the actual world in which we live with our ideal notions of truth, justice, and God.”

Thus, the concept of Shekinah is Kabbalistic and completely pagan. And tikkun olam and its notion of the restoration of the heavens and the earth via the unification of their goddess and god is Kabbalistic. Both of these have led to this present climate initiative, this repairing of the world, this altering of the 10 Commandments, this blasphemy.

So, what blasphemy is happening at Sinai? Well, back in August of 2022, Yosef Abramowitz published an article entitled, “For Our Sin of Emissions: 10+1 Climate Commandments” wherein he stated, “A narrow strip of biblical land, from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, is not only the pathway of the Israelites during the Exodus, but it is also the birthplace of our climate redemption. This November, world leaders will gather down the coast from here in Sharm el-Sheik to try to hammer-out yet another climate plan…Climate hope may not come… from the 27th gathering of world leaders on the issue but instead from a nearby place of paramount spiritual power. A group of us, under the auspices of the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development and the Elijah Interfaith Institute, recently came together at Mount Sinai to envision what message of hope and transformation religions can offer to humanity as we grapple with the challenges of climate justice. One of the ideas was returning to the 10 commandments, given at Sinai.”

This is not honoring the literal interpretation of God’s commandments, but rather, is adding to Scripture. Abramowitz states wittily, “While not set in stone, here’s my version…” These are new commandments, man-made commandments such as ‘acknowledge a higher power’, do not murder by allowing climate change to continue, do not steal the future of mother nature, do not lie about the very real dangers of climate change, keep the Sabbath by not using your car that day, and honor mother earth.

Really, this is all in honor of Shekinah – the mother goddess – via a Kabbalistic ritual performed by most leadership of the world religions today.

Going deeper, Jonathan Cahn in his new book, “The Return of the gods” writes about the return of pagan worship (specifically to America) and of the replacing of the Trinity for the unholy trinity of the ancient gods. This came about when first America emptied herself of the one true God by removing the Bible, prayer, and the 10 Commandments from public schools and from public display elsewhere as well. Money, profit, pleasure, comfort and success became idols, and brought about the molten Baal bull of Wall Street. And as with the Baal of the Bible, he led America into paganism and the worship of Gaia. “Man was of nature, nature was of God, man was God, and God was everything – pantheism.” (pg 57).

But the most ancient of the gods was the goddess of Sumer, but who bears many names and is revered in nation after nation, religion after religion, and whose title is the “Queen of Heaven.” This is is the Mother Goddess with many names including Gaia, Astarte, Ishtar, and Innana to name a few. She is a goddess of sexuality, homosexuality and prostitution, a sorceress of great enchanting power, who changes her form from woman to man, and is the consort of Baal. Death and rebirth and the coming of Spring are associated with her, and is the goddess of personal freedom and war. And strangely enough, she bears a striking resemblance to America’s Statue of Liberty created via the vision of French Freemason Edward Laboulaye (link regarding this below).

What is happening at Sinai is definitely a form of Kabbalistic “rituals for gaining and exercising power to effect change in our world and in the celestial worlds beyond ours…” as stated at learnkabbalah.com, and is truly about “performing commandments, summoning and controlling angelic and demonic forces, and otherwise tapping into the supernatural energies present in Creation…” and being “a co-creator with God…” This much is clear. And many if not all religions are being represented there at this time, and they are actively performing, summoning, and thinking they are controlling and tapping into the supernatural realm, playing co-creators.

Indeed, this “return” is not a moral returning nor a repentant one before the one true God, but is a blasphemous one aimed at reverence for the earth and a call for all religions to join together in unity for the salvation of the planet and all of the cosmos, that their messiah might emerge. But this messiah is not Jesus, but rather the realization that each person is messiah. As kabbalah.com states, “The startling revelation of Kabbalah is that each and every person is actually the Messiah. The removal of chaos requires the collective con­sciousness of all its pieces, and Messiah is the collective enterprise of all human beings. When each of us fulfills the requirements of con­sciousness and behavior – and thus become Messiah within ourselves – then and only then can we bring forth and become part of a collective Messiah. When all people achieve communion with their individual Messiah‑consciousness, we will then experience the pres­ence of Messiah. The awesome Light of the Creator is then revealed in its full splendor– and chaos, the epitome of darkness, simply fades away, for darkness cannot coexist with light.”

And this belief is more pervasive than one might think. This Kabbalistic belief about light and messiah-consciousness aligns perfectly with the New Age movement for it teaches “…pantheism — the pagan belief that God is in everything and therefore everything is God. This belief stands in direct opposition to the biblical teaching that God exists separate and apart from His creation. A corollary of pantheism is the belief that Man is god and therefore the key to spiritual enlightenment and salvation is to recognize one’s divinity and release it to achieve Christ-consciousness.”

According to an article on LetUsReason.com, “No one has spoken clearer on the new ecumenism that is united by a mystical experience than Matthew Fox. Fox states Christianity has been “out of touch with its “core,” its center, its sense of mystical practice and cosmic awareness” (p.7, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ by Matthew Fox.) “This shift requires making mysticism central to our faith once again. What the human race needs today is mystical solidarity. (p.232) the coming together of religions, has been thwarted because world religions have not been relating at the level of mysticism” (p.65.) Fox’s view is panentheism, which he defines as “all things in God and God in all things” (p. 57 The Coming of the Cosmic Christ). He is also correct in stating, this “is the way all genuine mystics interpret the universe. Divinity is not outside us. We are in God and God in us. That is the unitive experience of the mystics East or West” (p.50.) It is not surprising that so called evangelicals like Tony Campolo say the same thing. In his book “Partly Right” He favorably writes, “Robert Schuller affirms our divinity, yet does not deny our humanity … isn’t that what the gospel is? Isn’t God’s message to sinful humanity that He sees in each of us a divine nature of such worth that He sacrificed His own Son so that our divine potentialities might be realized?…Campolo has said that, “I’m not convinced that Jesus only lives in Christians.””

Even leadership in the New Apostolic Reformation adhere to such beliefs including both Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding, California. Bill Johnson contributed a chapter or two to a book called The Physics of Heaven. In it, one of its main authors Ellyn Davis states of all the contributors of the book, that “all agree that the next move of God will cause a shift at the deepest level of who we are—perhaps the very “vibrational level” that the New Age movement has been exploring. They also all agree that there are precious truths hidden in the New Age that belong to us as Christians and need to be extracted from the worthless.”

Yet another Christian contributor of the same book, Jonathan Welton, states, “I have found throughout Scripture at least 75 examples of things that the New Age has counterfeited, such as having a spirit guide, trances, meditation, auras, power objects, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and more. These actually belong to the church, but they have been stolen and cleverly repackaged…We need to begin to use [New Age] counterfeits as signposts. Every time a counterfeit shows up, take it as the Lord presenting you with an opportunity to reclaim . . . the Church’s stolen property.”

Another New Apostolic Reformation proponent Brian Simmons author of the new, popular Bible translation the Passion, has stated, “We are the Word made flesh again. We are the Reincarnation of Jesus Christ,” and “We’re the seed of Christ, the 42nd generation, we complete the geneology of Jesus. CHRIST IS NO LONGER A MAN, HE’S A PEOPLE. YOU AND I CARRY LIKE MARY. WE WILL BRING FORTH THE CHRIST. THE SECOND COMING IS THE BECOMING OF THE LORD,” and “AS THE CHRIST COMES FORTH AND EMERGES ON THE EARTH IN A CORPORATE EXPRESSION…And that Revelation 12 virgin is going to come and bring forth the salvation of the planet.

All in all, what is taking place at Sinai right now in November of 2022, is the blasphemous one world religion of “messiah consciousness” beginning to take shape in order to bring all the world under the rule of the Noahide laws based in Kabbalah and a new set of 10 Commandments, whose paganism goes back all the way back to ancient Sumer — Babylon. And the Queen of heaven, mother goddess, Mother Earth, the great prostitute, Shekinah – call her by whatever name you will – will quite possibly rise to prominence in a newly “reset” America.

These really are just my thoughts thus far on what I am perceiving, and I wanted to let you in on that research.

Blessings,

Quote: “A narrow strip of biblical land, from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, is not only the pathway of the Israelites during the Exodus, but it is also the birthplace of our climate redemption.

One of the ideas was returning to the 10 commandments, given at Sinai.

Emissions are down 30 percent over the sabbath every week in Israel and are almost zeroed out on Yom Kippur (the Jewish Day of Atonement, the holiest of the year). A global weekly non-carbon day of rest could reduce emissions of the world by a seventh, and can be observed by different faith communities on different days.”

Note: Says he attended Solomon Schechter School of Greater Boston that “created a base of Jewish knowledge.” Below is the info from that very school concerning what type of Jewish knowledge was presented.

“Jewish Identity,” from the Schechter Boston school website, https://ssdsboston.org/about/jewish-identity/

Quote: “Our tradition teaches us that there are 70 faces of the Torah (Bamidbar Rabba 13:16), which is understood to mean that there are countless ways to interpret our sacred texts. It can feel like magic when a word or phrase, with a seemingly singular meaning, suddenly reveals itself to be multi-dimensional and rich in character. Yet the process of revealing that deeper meaning of a text is not supernatural or unexplained—it comes from a unique process of exegesis that is at the core of Jewish tradition. The way that we study and parse texts is almost as ancient as the texts themselves.

Jewish tradition values asking questions and challenging assumptions. The ancient sages modeled an emphasis on intertextual connections to draw parallels between multiple sources. Our tradition trains our eyes to notice literary devices and patterns that reveal deep truths that may be embedded inside of the simple meaning. These are all central to the critical thinking process required for the analytical study of any discipline and these processes are profoundly Jewish. As a school, we believe that when our students study ancient Jewish texts that they not only elevate their level of proficiency around our beloved tradition but also enhance their analytical skills in all areas of study…”

Shabbat Dinner with Kamala and Doug,” August 13, 2020, by Yosef Abramowitz who is the

‘special advisor’ to the COP 27 climate change initiative and event that will be taking place at Sinai beginning November 6, 2022, and the writer of the article about the 10 Commandments and sins of emissions, https://blogs.timesofisrael.com/shabbat-dinner-with-kamala-and-doug/

Quote: “While we have hosted many members of Congress, Kamala Harris was going to be our first senator. This was a private trip, we were told, so that Doug, her Jewish husband, could finally see the Jewish state and also experience a special Shabbat. No one had to tell us the significance; there were already whispers of a presidential campaign. Unbeknownst to us, the senator had asked her staff to seek out a Shabbat dinner that would resonate for Doug, and they presented six families. I think we won the privilege because the Israel that Senator Harris loves, and the Judaism she most identifies with, is our Israel and our Judaism — filled with good people challenging its imperfections and fighting to lift human dignity wherever we can…

On the one hand, there is nothing remarkable about our Shabbatot. Candlelighting, angel cards, kiddush, blessing the kids, motzi. But Kamala wanted something special…

Kamala brought up solar energy and climate change. I was happy to tell her about our goal of going 100% solar daytime for Eilat and the Arava Desert – which we achieved this year! – and how we are bringing that model to African countries with US government advocacy and financing. This is the good stuff. We did not talk about settlements or other wedge issues on Israel. But rather how the US and Israel can work together to further international development and win the climate battle. “We have a lot to learn from you,” said the junior senator from California…

Kamala waited until dessert to share her Israel-related mission. She leaned forward toward Susan. “My goal is to hold together the center on Israel in the Democratic Party,” said the now-contender for the vice presidency of the United States. She said it with conviction, authenticity and, in that moment, as a related-Member of the Tribe around the Shabbat table in Jerusalem.

When you walk into the front reception of Kamala Harris’s Senate office, there is a framed photograph with the caption, “Shabbat in Israel 2017” with a group picture from our home.”

Since the 1970s, the movement has adopted a policy of inclusiveness and acceptance, inviting as many as possible to partake in its communities, rather than strict theoretical clarity. It is strongly identified with progressive political and social agendas, mainly under the traditional Jewish rubric tikkun olam, or “repairing of the world”.

The practical dimension of Kabbalah involves rituals for gaining and exercising power to effect change in our world and in the celestial worlds beyond ours. This power is generated by performing commandments, summoning and controlling angelic and demonic forces, and otherwise tapping into the supernatural energies present in Creation. The practical aspect of Kabbalah furthers God’s intention in the world, advancing good, subduing evil, healing, and mending. The true master of this art fulfills the human potential to be a co-creator with God…

Beyond academia, however, the term “Kabbalah” is a catchall for all forms of Jewish esotericism…In contemporary Reform congregations, the observances of Kabbalat Shabbat, havdalah, and the Tu BiShvat seder derive from Kabbalistic traditions.”

Tikkum Olam, Repairing the World,” https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/tikkun-olam-repairing-the-world/

Quote: “In reference to individual acts of repair, the phrase “tikkun olam” figures prominently in the Lurianic account of creation and its implications: God contracted the divine self to make room for creation. Divine light became contained in special vessels, or kelim, some of which shattered and scattered. While most of the light returned to its divine source, some light attached itself to the broken shards. These shards constitute evil and are the basis for the material world; their trapped sparks of light give them power.

According to the Lurianic account, the first man, Adam, was intended to restore the divine sparks through mystical exercises, but his sin interfered. As a result, good and evil remained thoroughly mixed in the created world, and human souls (previously contained within Adam’s) also became imprisoned within the shards.

The “repair,” that is needed, therefore, is two-fold: the gathering of light and of souls, to be achieved by human beings through the contemplative performance of religious acts. The goal of such repair, which can only be effected by humans, is to separate what is holy from the created world, thus depriving the physical world of its very existence—and causing all things return to a world before disaster within the Godhead and before human sin, thus ending history.”

What is Tikkun Olam?” Chabad, https://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/3700275/jewish/What-Is-Tikkun-Olam.htm#3_How

Quote: ““The Kabbalists taught that the Torah was given so that we could improve not only our own selves, but the entire cosmic order…In our times, the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory, described tikkun olam as the mission of every human being. He spoke with a voice of urgency…

Tikkun olam is often used exclusively to describe acts of social justice and environmental awareness…And it is certainly vital that we ensure the sustainability of life upon this magnificent stage of creation.”

“Kabbalah and Ecology: God’s Image in the More-Than-Human-World,” book summary published in 2015, https://www.cambridge.org/core/books/kabbalah-and-ecology/6277318C3923022225F6A89551E7432C#fndtn-information

Summary: “Kabbalah and Ecology is a groundbreaking book that resets the conversation about ecology and the Abrahamic traditions. David Mevorach Seidenberg challenges the anthropocentric reading of the Torah, showing that a radically different orientation to the more-than-human world of nature is not only possible, but that such an orientation also leads to a more accurate interpretation of scripture, rabbinic texts, Maimonides and Kabbalah. Deeply grounded in traditional texts and fluent with the physical sciences, this book proposes not only a new understanding of God’s image but also a new direction for restoring religion to its senses and to a more alive relationship with the more-than-human, both with nature and with divinity.”

“Shechinah, the Divine Feminine,” Theosophical Kabbalah, https://learnkabbalah.com/shechinah-the-divine-feminine/

Quote: “Our experience of separateness is part of our reality. And that which is present is not mere illusion: it is the Presence of the Divine, the shechinah, the tenth sefirah, also known as malchut, sovereignty. Malchut completes the chain of the sefirot…In Divine terms, malchut is the world that we experience, which is filled with the Shechinah, the Divine presence. Malchut is that aspect of the Divine which is totally immanent, absolutely here and now, closer to you even than your concept of “you.”…

Malchut is not merely an abstract quality in the Kabbalah, however. It is also Shechinah, Presence, the revealed Divine face — and the Divine feminine. It is Shechinah who never leaves us, the Divine Feminine — in other systems understood as the Goddess — who is with us always and who is, like us sometimes, exiled from her Divine lover, the Holy One. Sefirotically, the Divine name “Holy One, Blessed be He” refers to Tiferet as expressed through Yesod — the active masculine principle, the “sky god” in primitive theology. Erotically, the great motion of the universe is the reunification of the masculine principle and the feminine one…

How different is this dynamic of Holy One and Shechinah from the ancient wedding of god and goddess, precisely the practices about which our ancestors were so concerned? And the more you know, the more “troubling” the situation becomes. Mystics are exhorted to experience this union sexually — with their wives, on Friday night in particular. Poems and prayers are composed to the Shechinah itself — for example, the many references to “Sabbath Queen” and “Sabbath Bride.” (Who do we think we are addressing in those prayers, anyway?) And the imagery of the Shechinah is, unabashedly, goddess-imagery: She is the Earth mating with the sky through the conduits of rain, She is the spirit in the trees, She is the ever-renewing cyclical flow of natural times and seasons…

Well, what about the hundreds of different religions around today? Are women who venerate the Virgin Mary wrong? Confused? Are over a billion Hindus, devoted to any number of different Divine beings (or manifestations) really worshipping something completely devoid of any reality?…Clearly, the “primitive” person, the Kabbalist, and the devotees of different religions are experiencing something…

Some texts of the Kabbalah take precisely this view, even if it may strike us as surprisingly pluralistic. The Zohar, for example, understands even the despised idolatries of Ancient Canaan as merely imprecise in terminology. Asherah-worship, for example, is basically worship of the Shechinah — only with the mistaken notion that Asherah is really a separate being. Indeed, in one of the most shocking passages in the Zohar (brought to my attention by Rabbi Jill Hammer), Asherah is even a future name of Shechinah herself.

If the radical nature of these ideas is not resonating with you, imagine something closer to home. Imagine a text which says that Jesus Christ is but another name for Tiferet, or that Ganesh is just a name for Hod. Everyone’s on the right track, so to speak; it’s just in some of the theological details that they get confused…

The Kabbalah may be aware of these energies, and honor them far more than does any other part of Judaism, but it is also conservative in nature. Traditional Kabbalah does not set aside the mitzvot, or Torah study, or the life of the pious…

But if we are speaking of the Presence of God, then we are speaking of God as experienced — and that includes the gendered and eroticized images of Earth Goddess, princess, and bride. Across thousands of years and wide geographical expanses, peoples around the world have experienced the Divine as feminine. And the more some traditions have sought to erase Her, the more slyly She has persisted — sometimes in “Christmas Trees” or “Easter Eggs” (historically, both pagan symbols of the Goddess)…

The Goddess is a nearly universal human experience, it would seem, and She remains in monotheism as a part of the unified One — albeit a part which is sometime in exile from the whole, and in need of unification…

Malchut is probably the most important of the ten sefirot — remember, what’s higher on a Kabbalistic hierarchy is not more important than what is below — because She is closest to us. The great Kabbalistic project to restore unity and harmony in the Divine begins with unifying the immanent and the transcendent, or shamayim and aretz. We might also see that project as the essential work of traditional Judaism as a whole: bringing together the actual world in which we live with our ideal notions of truth, justice, and God.”

What is Messiah?” https://www.kabbalah.com/en/articles/what-is-messiah/

Quote: “Regarding this period that is about to dawn, in which miracles will become the norm, the Zohar cautions us concerning those people who will be determined to prevent the end of chaos, pain, and suffering. The existence of such people seems to defy human understand­ing – Why would anyone resist ideas that can benefit all mankind? Why not accept changes that will remove, once and for all, the pain and suffering that mankind has so long endured?…

Kabbalah teaches that the power behind the resistance to growth and transformation is the Satan. People are often confused upon first hearing of the Satan in a kabbalistic context. The term does not refer to a being with horns and a tail…

The Zohar tells us that the forces of evil and chaos, as represented by the Satan, willcoerce vulnerable individuals to reject outright any and all solutions that might enhance the quali­ty of their lives. At the same time, these people will vehemently deny the existence of the forces that are leading them toward negative and self‑destructive behavior. The revelation, therefore, of these unseen forces is an over­whelmingly significant step toward preparing humanity for entrance into a new era filled with the Light of the Creator.

Amid these questions raised by religious interpretations of Messiah – such as who he is, when he is coming, and why certain people will refuse to accept him – it is extremely refreshing to connect with the universal truths concerning the Messiah concept as presented by Kabbalah, bearing in mind that Kabbalah existed long before there were any formal religions.

The startling revelation of Kabbalah is that each and every person is actually the Messiah. The removal of chaos requires the collective con­sciousness of all its pieces, and Messiah is the collective enterprise of all human beings. When each of us fulfills the requirements of con­sciousness and behavior – and thus become Messiah within ourselves – then and only then can we bring forth and become part of a collective Messiah. When all people achieve communion with their individual Messiah‑consciousness, we will then experience the pres­ence of Messiah. The awesome Light of the Creator is then revealed in its full splendor– and chaos, the epitome of darkness, simply fades away, for darkness cannot coexist with light…

We, of this generation are so fortunate to par­ticipate in this Age of Aquarius. Unlike previ­ous generations, awareness of Messiah’s true meaning is available to us. Now that we can see ourselves as integral parts of this cosmic event, the task of achieving a Messiah‑con­sciousness is a great deal easier to achieve. Indeed, the cosmos itself now supports and assists us in this effort to reach out to our own Messiah‑consciousness…

What has taken place in this incredible 20th cen­tury– an event more significant than any other in history – is the unveiling of the wisdom of Kabbalah beyond a select few to all the people of the world. This 4000‑year‑old discipline and teaching, locked for centuries in ancient vaults, has finally been restored to its rightfulowners.

It is therefore comprehensible that because the awesome Light of the Creator has been released into the cosmos by virtue of the Zohar, the incredible technological advances of this century have come about as a direct result of a cosmic transformation of consciousness.”

The New Age Church: The World’s Largest Church,” by David Reagan, https://christinprophecy.org/articles/the-new-age-church/

Quote: “The essence of the New Age Movement is pantheism — the pagan belief that God is in everything and therefore everything is God.10 This belief stands in direct opposition to the biblical teaching that God exists separate and apart from His creation. A corollary of pantheism is the belief that Man is god and therefore the key to spiritual enlightenment and salvation is to recognize one’s divinity and release it to achieve Christ-consciousness…”

New Age Pathways in the Church,” http://www.letusreason.org/current86.htm

Quote: “No one has spoken clearer on the new ecumenism that is united by a mystical experience than Matthew Fox. Fox states Christianity has been “out of touch with its “core,” its center, its sense of mystical practice and cosmic awareness” (p.7, The Coming of the Cosmic Christ by Matthew Fox.) “This shift requires making mysticism central to our faith once again. What the human race needs today is mystical solidarity. (p.232) the coming together of religions, has been thwarted because world religions have not been relating at the level of mysticism” (p.65.) Fox’s view is panentheism, which he defines as “all things in God and God in all things” (p. 57 The Coming of the Cosmic Christ). He is also correct in stating, this “is the way all genuine mystics interpret the universe. Divinity is not outside us. We are in God and God in us. That is the unitive experience of the mystics East or West” (p.50.) It is not surprising that so called evangelicals like Tony Campolo say the same thing. In his book “Partly Right” He favorably writes, “Robert Schuller affirms our divinity, yet does not deny our humanity…isn’t that what the gospel is? Isn’t God’s message to sinful humanity that He sees in each of us a divine nature of such worth that He sacrificed His own Son so that our divine potentialities might be realized?…Campolo has said that, “I’m not convinced that Jesus only lives in Christians.””

Quote: “On this day, people from all over the world gathered on behalf of the Laws of
Noah,” said Rabbi Yakov D. Cohen, head of the Institute of Noahide Code, which
sponsored the conference. “Their observance is required, so that the vision of the
United Nations—to have a settled and civilized world, filled with economic justice
and righteousness—will prevail.”Titled “One People, One World,” the conference brought together journalists, diplomats, and delegates from countries across the globe – including Egypt and Israel.
Guests of honor from the UN Diplomatic Corps also signed a “Declaration of the
Seven Laws of Noah,” which emphasized the importance of the Seven Noahide Laws
in maintaining peace, justice, and harmony among peoples and nations. In his remarks at the event, Rabbi Cohen discussed how monotheism – uniting the world under the one true G-d – is essential for breaking down barriers between
cultures…

The Institute of Noahide Code is a UN-accredited NGO dedicated to spreading
awareness of the Seven Noahide Laws, which all peoples of the world are obligated
to follow. It takes its guidance from the inspiring vision of the Lubavitcher Rebbe,
who understood the inherent power of these laws to unite the nations of the world.”

The Rebbe,” https://www.lubavitch.com/the-rebbe/

Quote: “The Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of blessed memory, is the seventh leader in the Chabad-Lubavitch dynasty. He has been described as the most phenomenal Jewish personality of our time. To his hundreds of thousands of followers and millions of sympathizers and admirers around the world, he is “the Rebbe,” today’s most dominant figure in Judaism and, undoubtedly, the one individual more than any other singularly responsible for stirring the conscience and spiritual awakening of world Jewry…the Rebbe is the son of the renowned kabbalist and talmudic scholar, the late Rabbi Levi Yitzchak and Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson. He is the great-grandson—and namesake—of the third Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Lubavitch.”

Is There an Ancient Secret Connection Between the Statute of Liberty and the Annunaki goddess Innana?” September 28, 2018, https://www.ancientpages.com/2018/09/28/is-there-an-ancient-secret-connection-between-the-statue-of-liberty-and-the-anunnaki-goddess-inanna/

Quote: “The Statue of Liberty was a Masonic concept conceived from within Freemasonry. The chief promoter and fundraiser for the project was Edward Laboulaye and he collaborated with the sculptor Frederic Bartholdi to develop a statue of Masonic enlightenment…

In the original planning, the Statue of Liberty was designed in the initial stages to be in color. She was to be wearing the royal robes of scarlet and purple.

It became obvious that for reasons of monetary purposes the statue must be made from copper. The use of copper precluded the use of any color schemes. Thus the original plans for scarlet and purple robes were abandoned.

The Torch:

This item was originally designed to be a golden cup filled with the wine of freedom. This golden cup remained in the planning and was actually made.

However, before completion and shipping of the entire statue, the New York Port authorities asked if there could be some sort of modification to allow for an eternal flame or light to be designed into the statue so that ships could use her as a night time navigational aid. Bartholdi consented to make modifications to the basic cup design to allow for a natural gas flame to be utilized.

The torch we see today is actually the same type of cup design used in ancient times for drinking wine. It featured a handle for the cup at the bottom and the handle looked much like a stick. The golden aspect itself was altered again to conform to the needs of the natural gas flame.

The actual, original golden cup was later sold by the project to the Czar of Russia, Czar Nicholas. In 1917 during the Russian revolution the Communist government took possession of it. The cup has remained in Russian hands but in 1997 was reportedly offered for sale by the Russian government to help pay off Russia’s foreign debts. This author has not been able to determine whether or not the cup was actually sold or not. It is only known that the cup is still in existence…

The are just too many coincidences when we compare the characteristics in the scriptures relating to the woman called “Mystery Babylon — “Mother of Harlots” with that of Ishtar of Babylon and the Statue of Liberty.”

“Mithraism,” https://www.catholic.com/encyclopedia/mithraism

Quote: “The origin of the cult of Mithra dates from the time that Hindus and Persians still formed one people, for the god Mithra occurs in the religion and the sacred books of both races, i.e. in the Vedas and in the Aesta…After the conquest of Babylon this Persian cult came into contact with Chaldean astrology and with the national worship of Marduk. For a time the two priesthoods of Mithra and Marduk (magi and chaldiei respectively) coexisted in the capital and Mithraism borrowed much from this intercourse…

As Mithraism passed as a Phrygian cult it began to share in the official recognition which Phrygian worship had long enjoyed in Rome. The Emperor Commodus was publicly initiated. Its greatest devotee however was the imperial son of a priestess of the sun-god at Sirmium in Pannonia, Valerian, who according to the testimony of Flavius Vopiscus, never forgot the cave where his mother initiated him. In Rome, he established a college of sun priests and his coins bear the legend “Sol, Dominus Imperii Romani”…

The first principle or highest God was according to Mithraism “Infinite Time“; this was called Greek: Aion or Saeculum, Kronos or Saturnus. This Kronos is none other than Zervan, an ancient Iranian conception, which survived the sharp dualism of Zoroaster; for Zervan was father of both Ormuzd and Ahriman and connected the two opposites in a higher unity and was still worshipped a thousand years later by the Manichees. This personified Time, ineffable, sexless, passionless, was represented by a human monster, with the head of a lion and a serpent coiled about his body. He carried a scepter and lightning as sovereign god and held in each hand a key as master of the heavens. He had two pair of wings to symbolize the swiftness of time. His body was covered with zodiacal signs and the emblems of the seasons (i.e. Chaldean astrology combined with Zervanism)…

As evil spirits ever lie in wait for hapless man, he needs a friend and savior who is Mithra. Mithra was born of a mother-rock by a river under a tree…The hero-god first gives battle to the sun, conquers him, crowns him with rays and makes him his eternal friend and fellow; nay, the sun becomes in sense Mithra’s double, or again his father, but `Elios Mithras is one god. Then follows the struggle between Mithra and the bull, the central dogma of Mithraism…

Man is now created and subjected to the malign in influence of Ahriman in the form of droughts, deluges, and conflagrations, but is saved by Mithra. Finally man is well established on earth and Mithra returns to heaven. He celebrates a last supper with Helios and his other companions, is taken in his fiery chariot across the ocean, and now in heaven protects his followers. For the struggle between good and evil con tinues in heaven between the planets and stars, and on earth in the heart of man. Mithra is the Mediator (Mesites) between God and man…”

Mithraists “battled on Mithra’s side against all impurity, against all evil within and without. They believed in the immortality of the soul; sinners after death were dragged to hell; the just passed through the seven spheres of the planets, through seven gates opening at a mystic word to Ahura Mazda, leaving at each planet a part of their lower humanity until, as pure spirits, they stood before God. At the end of the world Mithra will descend to earth on another bull, which he will sacrifice, and mixing its fat with sacred wine he will make all drink the beverage of immortality. He will thus have proved himself Nabarses, i.e.”never conquered”…

The members below the degree of pater called one another “brother,” and social distinctions were forgotten in Mithraic unity. The ceremonies of initiation for each degree must have been elaborate, but they are only vaguely known lustrations and bathings, branding with red hot metal, anointing with honey, and others. A sacred meal was celebrated of bread and haoma juice for which in the West wine was substituted. This meal was supposed to give the participants supernatural virtue. The Mithraists worshipped in caves…

Three times a day prayer was offered the sun towards east, south, or west according to the hour. Sunday was kept holy in honor of Mithra, and the sixteenth of each month was sacred to him as mediator. The December 25 was observed as his birthday, the natalis invicti, the rebirth of the winter sun, unconquered by the rigors of the season.”

“Ishtar,” http://www.mythencyclopedia.com/Ho-Iv/Ishtar.html

Quote: “In the ancient Near East, Ishtar was an important and widely worshiped mother goddess for many Semitic* peoples. The Sumerians* called her Inanna, and other groups of the Near East referred to her as Astarte. A complex deity, Ishtar combined the characteristics—both good and evil—of many different goddesses. As a benevolent mother figure, she was considered the mother of gods and humans, as well as the creator of all earthly blessings. In this role, she grieved over human sorrows and served as a protector of marriage and motherhood. People also worshiped Ishtar as the goddess of sexual love and fertility. The evil side of Ishtar’s nature emerged primarily in connection with war and storms. As a warrior goddess, she could make even the gods tremble in fear. As a storm goddess, she could bring rain and thunder.”

Innana/Ishtar in Mesopotamian Mythology – goddess of love and war,” https://mythologyexplained.com/inanna-ishtar-in-mesopotamian-mythology/

Quote: “Another interesting feature about the temples of Inanna was that a set of her priests, those known as the Gala priests, were thought to be those who had deferred from the traditional gender binary and were known to adopt female names.

There are also accounts of the servants of Ishtar in Akkadia who were thought to dress in female clothing and performed dances in her temples. Ancient Akkadian stories also suggest that the parties involved may have also been homosexual—a glimpse perhaps into how little issue sexuality and gender identification was in early Sumerian and Akkadian society.”

Ishtar: Mesopotamian goddess,” https://www.britannica.com/topic/Ishtar-Mesopotamian-goddess

Quote: “Ishtar’s primary legacy from the Sumerian tradition is the role of fertility figure; she evolved, however, into a more complex character, surrounded in myth by death and disaster, a goddess of contradictory connotations and forces—fire and fire-quenching, rejoicing and tears, fair play and enmity. The Akkadian Ishtar is also, to a greater extent, an astral deity, associated with the planet Venus. With Shamash, the sun god, and Sin, the moon god, she forms a secondary astral triad. In this manifestation her symbol is a star with 6, 8, or 16 rays within a circle. As goddess of Venus, delighting in bodily love, Ishtar was the protectress of prostitutes and the patroness of the alehouse. Part of her cult worship probably included temple prostitution. Her popularity was universal in the ancient Middle East, and in many centres of worship she probably subsumed numerous local goddesses. In later myth she was known as Queen of the Universe, taking on the powers of An, Enlil, and Enki.”

“Mithraism: Persian Religion,” https://www.britannica.com/topic/Mithraism

Quote: “Before ancient religious reformer Zarathustra (Greek name Zoroaster) gained influence in the region during the 6th century bce, the Iranians had a polytheistic religion, and Mithra was the most important of their gods…the god Mitra (the Indian form of Mithra) appears both as “friend” and as “contract.” The word mitra may be translated in either way, because contracts and mutual obligation make friends. In short, Mithra may signify any kind of interpersonal communication and whatever establishes good relations between people. Mithra was called the Mediator. Mithra was also the god of the sun, of the shining light that beholds everything, and, hence, was invoked in oaths. The Greeks and Romans considered Mithra as a sun god. He was probably also the god of kings. He was the god of mutual obligation between the king and his warriors and, hence, the god of war…The most important Mithraic ceremony was the sacrifice of the bull

from the tail of the bull and from his blood sprang the first ears of grain and the grape; and from the genitals of the animal ran the holy seed which was received by a mixing bowl. Every creature on earth was shaped with an admixture of the holy seed. One Mithraic hymn begins: “Thou hast redeemed us too by shedding the eternal blood.”…

But, awakened by the sudden light, the creatures of the dark emerged from earth. A serpent licked the bull’s blood. A scorpion tried to suck the holy seed from the genitals. On the reliefs a lion often is also seen. With the bull’s death and the creation of the world, the struggle between good and evil began…

the human soul came down from heaven. It crossed the seven spheres of the planets, taking on their vices (e.g., those of Mars and of Venus), and was finally caught within the body. The task of human life is to liberate one’s divine part (the soul) from the shackles of the body and to reascend through the seven spheres to the eternal, unchanging realm of the fixed stars. This ascent to the sky was prefigured by Mithra himself, when he left the earth in the chariot of the sun god…

The initiates were organized in seven grades: corax, Raven; nymphus, Bridegroom; miles, Soldier; leo, Lion; Perses, Persian; heliodromus, Courier of (and to) the Sun; pater, Father. To each rank belonged a particular mask (Raven, Persian, Lion) or dress (Bridegroom). The rising of the Mithraist in grade prefigured the ascent of the soul after death. The series of the seven initiations seems to have been enacted by passing through seven gates and climbing a ladder of seven steps. Each grade was attributed to one of the seven planetary gods. The zealous Mithraist gradually passed the spheres of these minor deities and finally reached the region of the fixed stars…”

What Is Really Going On: The Elections, World War, and “Loosing” the World

In the wake of many disappointing elections in the United States and upheaval in Brazil because of their elections; in light of what is happening worldwide as the rumblings of war grow louder and longer such as in Tigray of Ethiopia, Ukraine of Europe, Taiwan, and the Middle East; and in the reality of tyrannical governments, such as China’s and Myanmar’s and North Korea’s, continuing to constrict and clamp down more tightly on their people, it is powerfully clear that we must live in the truth of 2 Peter 3:10-18.

10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.14Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless…17You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked; 18but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.”

Think about that. The heavens are going to disappear with a great roaring, crashing sound, and all will melt with extreme fire. And all the earth, everything held too dearly right now, will be loosed from the word of God’s great power, and will burn with an unimagined intensity until liquified, and will never be found again even if one sought to find it.

What then are we holding onto so tightly?

The affect of the knowledge that God’s kingdom is coming and that we are very much apart of it, and the hope of a new heavens and new earth and the conclusion of the present world is to be the cause of an inward change in us that in turn causes an “up-turn” of inner beliefs that leads to an alteration in outward behavior (https://biblehub.com/greek/391.htm). And this modification of behavior is to be one of holiness and reverent devotion to God. Verse 12 then goes on to explain that as we live out this holiness and reverence we will be “looking for and hastening” the day of God. To be “looking for and hastening” means we are eagerly and expectantly looking for this culmination of all things, and are earnestly desiring it above all else. It is not that we bring it into being by anything that we do or say or think. No. But it does mean that we are looking for it with every fiber of our being, our hearts singing and singly looking for it, awaiting with intense eagerness the coming of our King and His kingdom.

Dear reader, this is what God would have us doing now. He does not want us full of gloom and doom because of the disintegrating of this dying world and the death even of America. He does not want us disillusioned because of corrupt politics. He does not want us distracted by elections and talk of election fraud nor because our candidate did not get elected.

There are those who have tried their best recently to resuscitate America. They have poured their hearts, their time, their energy, their prayers, their money into saving her. The same is true also of other nations of this world such as Tigray, Myanmar, Brazil, Ukraine, Russia, China, Taiwan, Israel, Canada, and the list could go on indefinitely. But these nations are passing away, and we must not forget that God is still in charge. He sets up leaders and nations, and it is He who brings them down, even by bringing to power those we know are unworthy (Job 12:23; Psalm 75:7; Daniel 2 and 4). And we must not forget that this world is passing away! It is all being “loosed” as God intended long ago when He first created it. It is apart of His magnificent plan. This is that moment. This is that time.

Dearly beloved of Christ, our great God, Savior, and coming King is reminding us that He is “loosing” the world – He is letting the world go. And as He lets this earth go, we are to let it go too. It is time. And we are therefore, according to 2 Peter 3:14, to “be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless…” This means we are to be morally blameless, untainted by this world, faultless, and at peace – whole in our minds, hearts, and our unity with each other as the body of Christ.

Let us not get caught up in the error of the wicked that Christ cannot possibly be coming soon (2 Peter 3:1-7). Let us not become cynical or sarcastic regarding the eternal hope that we have. Let us not become weary and lose our mooring, our anchor and become like a helpless ship stuck on the sands of the shore. It is imperative that we keep our eyes on Jesus, our hopes in the coming of our Lord alone, and our minds set on things above and not on earthly things. Jesus warned us of all that is happening so that we would not be taken unawares, we would not be taken aback, we would not lose hope. He lovingly told us all we need to know in order that we might remain steadfast, firmly rooted in Him, planted upon the solid rock foundation of the eternal faith of the unchanging Christ.

Fear not little sheep, our Shepherd knew this day was coming, this valley of the shadow of death. There is nothing new in this to Him. He is in charge. He is in control. The devil can do nothing but what God gives him leave to do it. Thus, as Isaiah 50 states, 7“…the Lord God will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.” Rest in this unchanging fact, and “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity!

Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Do Not Be Deceived: More on ‘the Chosen’ (season 3)

Tags

, , , , , ,

Something even more grievous has come to light regarding the series “The Chosen,” and I thought it important to address this newest development. I will be brief. It is regarding season 3 that will be in theaters starting November 18th.

It has come to light via various sources below, including Protestia and Spencer Smith and even the official third season trailer, that the Jesus of “The Chosen” has now officially quoted the Book of Mormon in season 3 by saying, “I am the Law of Moses.” This was viewed in the official new season’s trailer. Though some may argue that this is minor, and that the Book of Mormon, Nephi 15:9, actually says, “I am the law, and the light. Look unto me, and endure to the end, and ye shall live,” the fact that what “the Chosen” Jesus says is more akin to the Mormon Jesus than the Biblical Jesus is incriminating at best and blasphemous at worst.

If you have not heard any of this about ‘the Chosen’ before, please view the article below entitled “Do Not Be Deceived: the Chosen” for more information. In short, the series ‘the Chosen’ is according to Dallas Jenkins is 95% fiction. It is said to be written by three authors of which the lead author and spokesperson is Dallas Jenkins. Dallas Jenkins himself a Christian but refers to Mormons as his brothers and sisters, works easily alongside Catholics and Mormons and even musicians who defend homosexuality, looks to both a Catholic priest for Biblical guidance as well as a Jewish/Buddhist/Messianic mystic, and now has had an audience with the Pope.

Interestingly enough, the Pope, astutely with wit and sarcasm, asked Jenkins if he plays Judas in the series. This barbed humor of the Pope says it all. After all, Jenkins who claims to be an Evangelical Christian has and is indeed betraying the true Christ for a false one.

We must remember that the real Jesus of the Bible’s Holy-Spirit inspired Gospels said that in the last of the last days just before His return there will be many false christs that shall arise to deceive many (Mark 13:21-23; Matthew 24:23-25). The Chosen’s christ appears to be one of those deceptions. It is a christ that has more in common with Catholicism and Mormonism and even other faith traditions than Christianity. It is a christ that makes people in other religions comfortable as they are and does not in any way call them to repentance. It is an ecumenical Jesus of the new world order beast system.

Furthermore and in agreement with Spencer Smith I conclude with this statement, “…If 95% of what’s in this deal is not in the Bible, I would be worried that it would taint my mind against Bible truth.” As Christians our minds are the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2), and those minds are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:2) through the washing of the water of God’s word (Ephesians 5:26), and “4…the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.” (2 Corinthians 10, emphasis mine)

Remaining vigilant,

Note: There are more sources regarding ‘the Chosen’ at the end of this article

Quote: “Dallas Jenkins considers himself an evangelical Christian, when in fact he is ecumenical to his core. He is ecumenical for he sees Mormons as brothers and sisters, and as lovers of the same Jesus as Christians, and I heard him say that he will sink or swim on that statement. He not only views them in this light, but works right alongside them as producers, marketers, financiers, and in other capacities. And he has not merely worked with them on the Chosen in this manner, but also on a short film called “The Shift” which was written and directed by a Mormon and presents Mormon beliefs about various Bible topics including Satan. Dallas Jenkins also easily works alongside ecumenical Biblical advisers. One of them David Guffey is a strong proponent of the praying the Rosery, praying to Mary, and loved the blasphemous book the Shack. Another of the Biblical advisers is a Jewish rabbi, Jason Sobel, who while attending rabbinic school also practices yoga and Buddhism. It was while actively practicing Buddhist meditation he left his body and came before “a king” on “a throne” in heaven, and that king said he was to follow him. Sobel was never called to repent, nor ever says that he repented, but merely that he came to believe in “Jesus”, and assumed Jesus was the one on the throne. However, this experience is more akin to what Johanna Michaelson tells about in her book, The Beautiful Side of Evil…And then there are the lead composers of the music, one of which is the former frontman for Jars of Clay, Dan Haseltine who openly spoke up for homosexual marriage on a social media platform and stated that the Bible is not clear regarding the issue. This is one of the two men behind the music of the Chosen…

It is fiction mixed with a small amount of Biblical fact, 95% fiction to be exact according to an interview of the frontman and writer Dallas Jenkins. And what is he doing working closely, intimately with those who do not know the true Jesus of the Bible? And for that matter, why would we as Christians want to be taught by such a presentation? Why would we want to be entertained with lies about Jesus?”

10 Biblical Objections to “the Chosen”,” October 25, 2022, Spencer Smith, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oALc3evK8Tk

Quote: Spenser Smith reading from a Light House Trails publication entitled Ten Critical Concerns about the Chosen, says, “Let me read this quote by Dallas Jenkins here. ‘…this is a big deal because for me it represents two things that are important. One is the branching out of the show to the world. Another is the branching out of the show to people and traditions that I wasn’t apart of. So it shows that the walls are coming down…I’ve never seen a project that united more faith traditions.’ This is talking about ‘the Chosen’, guys.”

“…If 95% of what’s in this deal is not in the Bible, I would be worried that it would taint my mind against Bible truth.”

Jesus Quotes ‘Book of Mormon’ in the Chosen Season 3,” October 28, 2022, https://protestia.com/2022/10/21/jesus-quotes-book-of-mormon-in-the-chosen-season-3/

Quote: “Though disappointing to Christian fans of The Chosen, this development in the series should not surprise viewers, as director Dallas Jenkins previously defended his Mormon friends, saying, “LDS are Christians” in a series of videos that defended Mormonism. The first video in the series began with the claim that God answered the prayers of director Dallas Jenkins, through the LDS church, allowing Jenkins to film season two of The Chosen in its Jerusalem set in Goshen, Utah. Apparently, Jenkins’ use of LDS resources and his friendship with Mormons have opened the door to heresy and compromise in the production of the series. As the series has gained popularity, its producers and actors have embraced ecumenism, with Jonathan Roumie and Dallas Jenkins visiting the Vatican to promote the series by meeting Pope Francis. The Pontiff asked Jenkins if he played Judas, which isn’t a stretch, considering his recent betrayal of the words of Christ.”

Note: How astute of the Pope to ask such a question!

Is God Really the One Behind ‘the Chosen,’ as the Creator of the Series Declares?” June 30, 2021, https://christianresearchnetwork.org/2021/06/30/is-god-really-the-one-behind-the-chosen-as-the-creator-of-the-series-declares/

Note: Though I disagree with this author regarding God ONLY speaking to us through His word (for God does speak to us with His still small voice, and does speak to us through other believers through words of wisdom, words of knowledge, prophecy, etc. That being said, what He says always aligns with Scripture. Always), I find the rest of the article excellent.

Quote: “My chief concern is that most people don’t realize that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints a.k.a Mormonism, is involved in producing the series. And that should give Christians pause.There are a whole host of pseudo-Christian cults around the globe. One of the most well-known cults is Mormonism.  No doubt some will find my assertion that they are caught up in a cult humorous, while others may find it disturbing that I would even suggest such a thing. However, as a Christian I’m not called to be nice; I’m called to speak the truth in love; likewise, I’m called to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3).”

“On a recent podcast, Pastor Gabriel Hughes of When We Understand The Text (WWUTT), mentioned that a few years ago he wrote a review of a film directed by Dallas Jenkins, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone. (See the podcast link below) Jenkins was upset by Hughes’ negative review and contacted him to let him know he was deeply offended. Hughes discussed what happened during their email exchange and went on to say that in his view, Jenkins “didn’t understand the Church let alone the gospel…he clearly didn’t understand the gospel at all.””

“Hughes plays another clip where we hear Jenkins say, “It’s a beautiful thing to see that we can agree on the stories of Christ.  You’ve got Catholics and Jews and Mormons and Evangelicals – we’re all loving the same show and this show is about Jesus. Maybe, just maybe we love the same Jesus.”

Hughes stops the interview and laments “I don’t know if he’s ever known the gospel.””

Note: I have not completely read this article. I have added it as yet another source regarding issues with the Chosen. Feel free to read it if you want to do so.

Quote: “This critique of The Chosen TV series is a guest post by Ingrid McCullough. The Chosen is a popular series, with many claiming that the series has enabled them to relate to Jesus, and that it’s made the scriptures “come alive.” Where scripture is silent regarding certain events, or the characters of Jesus and his disciples, Jenkins has used his imagination to fill the gaps. Some find the mixture of facts and fiction in the series heartwarming and entertaining, but we don’t need warm and fuzzy feelings or speculation to know the Christ of the scriptures. We need the scriptures. If you’re a fan of the series, put your emotions aside and consider the facts presented in this article.”

(many sources are listed below, sources regarding Coverstone’s dream, Christians and Halloween, the fall of the Western Church, and the schism taking place in many denominations over transgenderism. Please, scroll down and view the sources along with quotes from many of those sources)

While a chaplain at a Christian health care facility who had a Christian board and mostly Christian residents, I was slapped in the face by an overwhelming acceptance of Halloween. For the years I was there, they went all out in decorating competitions, costume competitions, and little trick-or-treaters invited yearly to go room to room for candy. Competition judges were called in to pick winners, and pictures were posted proudly in our newsletter and even in the local paper. Each year I was reminded of how one by one those who would not wear a costume were eventually pressured into wearing one and participating. So for several years I made sure that I went home early before all the craziness would start so as to remain unnoticed. For several years I flew under the radar on the covert mission of ministering to the residents, and continued undetected like the military’s stealth bomber flying over an unsuspecting nation.

But, then one day I could not fly undetected anymore. They came after me by sending the most outspoken Christian – and she was very evangelistic and everyone knew her beliefs about Jesus – to talk to me about participating in the Halloween madness. She spoke of innocent themes, even Bible themes, in hopes to influence me to dress up the next year. If I was not the only one left not who had not compromised it sure felt like I was the only one the way they targeted me. And though I cannot remember at all what all I said to her, after all, I am not good in confrontational moments. But, I do know that my heart was this, “I cannot ever participate in the devil’s holiday no matter how innocently dressed it might be.” And that heart is what I communicated however imperfectly.

Martin Luther did no differently on that fateful day that he stood before his judges at the Diet of Worms in 1521. They called on him to recant what he had written in the form of 95 Theses nailed to the Wittenburg chapel door as well as other literature he had published. “The official transcript quotes him as saying, “Unless I am convicted by Scripture and plain reason (I do not accept the authority of popes and councils because they have contradicted each other), my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. So help me God. Amen.”” (https://christianhistoryinstitute.org/blog/post/here-i-stand-i-can-do-no-other/) Or as he is popularly remember as saying as quoted from Luther’s books, ““Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”

In Luther’s day, the Church was polluted with compromise, filth, unscriptural practices, and demonically inspired doctrine. Corruption, fornication, indulgences, purgatory, fear, and ignorance had so riddled the Church that it was ripe for judgment. The pronouncement of that judgment was heard in the footsteps of a monk-professor crossing the frosty street and ascending the Wittenberg chapel steps, hammer and nail in hand. The pronouncement of God’s verdict was heard loudly and clearly with the firm rap of the hammer to the nail, the echo of which has resounded for 505 years into this present year of October 31, 2022. And that hammer and nail, that pronouncement, that verdict, that uncompromised stance brought about a dividing of the sheep from the goats, a separation of wheat from the tares, gold from the dross, light from darkness.

Today, the modern day western Church is polluted with compromise, filth, unscriptural practices and the doctrine of devils. Everyone is doing what is right in their own eyes while at the same time saying God had given them leave to do it. Dizzy with the cloud of incantations said against them and ignorant of what the Scripture says while proudly saying otherwise, they are deceived into believing that mixing and mingling with the world is not a sin. This has produced a “root of bitterness” in our midst that has polluted from the top down. This is not a bitterness of unforgiveness, as some mistakenly think, but rather, is a root of rebellion that like a little leaven it leavens the who lump, tainting the whole. As Deuteronomy 29 so adeptly states, there will be those “18…whose heart turns away today from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations, and that there may not be among you a root bearing bitterness or wormwood; 19and so it may not happen, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his heart, saying, ‘I shall have peace, even though I follow the dictates of my heart’—as though the drunkard could be included with the sober.” The writer of the book of Hebrews addresses this in chapter 12 when he says, “14Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; 16lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright…28Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29For our God is a consuming fire.”

The Corinthians felt they were so wise, so enlightened that they could not possibly be contaminated by evil. They truly felt that they could justifiably attend the idol feasts wherein pagans gathered in fellowship around the sacrifice of an animal before an idol, and then were able eat together of that sacrifice and chant in worship to another god. Since they really did believe in only One God, they felt they were safe in doing so. The Corinthians really thought they were immune to this because they knew that the idol was just an idol, and the food was just food. After all, they were gathering for business purposes (that is where business people would gather in those days – which was not much different than secret societies of modern times), or because their family wanted to do so (like going to a restaurant), not because they believed all that stuff. However, the Apostle Paul in three chapters (1 Corinthians 8-10) lays out two very important points against such behavior. Number one, to do so will likely cause your weaker brother or sister to stumble, and that the Corinthian’s freedom was therefore unloving. Number two, the idol was not just an idol but was backed by a very real demonic entity, and that to have koinonia with pagans and to partake of the altar was to partake with demons. “14Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 16The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.18Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 19What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 20Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?” (1 Corinthians 10:14-22)

This is exactly what is happening when a church or Christian participates in Halloween by wearing the costume of the festival or partaking of the candy of the holiday or by hanging out those, particularly unbelievers, who are doing so. This is the modern day equivalent of idolatry.

But it goes beyond Halloween. The sanctuary of the living God has been polluted by little things here and little things there, until its very spiritual walls have been decorated with images much like in Ezekiel’s day. “6“Son of man,” He said to me, “do you see what they are doing—the great abominations that the house of Israel is committing—to drive Me far from My sanctuary? Yet you will see even greater abominations.”…10 engraved all around the wall was every kind of crawling creature and detestable beast, along with all the idols of the house of Israel. 11Before them stood seventy elders of the house of Israel…Each had a censer in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incense was rising. 12“Son of man,” He said to me, “do you see what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the darkness, each at the shrine of his own idol? For they are saying, ‘The LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken the land.’ ” And “14Then He brought me to the entrance of the north gate of the house of the LORD, and I saw women sitting there, weeping for Tammuz…16So He brought me to the inner court of the house of the LORD, and there at the entrance to the temple of the LORD, between the portico and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs to the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east; and they were bowing to the east in worship of the sun.” (Ezekiel 8)

So, what is happening in the Church? What has decorated its walls and filled its inner sanctuary? Oh where shall I begin?

There has been the witchcraft teaching of the “word faith” philosophy wherein each can call into being what is not, which fuels the fire of the greed of Balaam and covetousness and creates an atmosphere of entitlement and discontentment, which is contrary to Scripture (Jude 1; Colossians 3:5; 1 Timothy 6:6; James 4). We are riddled with New Age practices such as yoga while thinking it can be redeemed by calling it Christian and doing it at church; altered by mystical Catholicism and its labyrinth walks and contemplative prayer that empties your mind instead of filling it with Scripture (Psalm 1) and opens you up to the demonic; inundated with the Hindu Kundalini spirit parading as the Holy Spirit with its lying signs and wonders of the New Apostolic Reformation; flooded with the foul demonic doctrines of the manifest sons of God wherein Christians are all becoming christ, and Dominionism wherein Jesus cannot come back until we get the world cleaned up and all seven mountains are taken and made ready for Him; overwhelmed with the unbiblical thought that we are not to judge in matters of the body of Christ and sin and thus we are filled with adultery, fornication, homosexuality, transgenders, people co-habiting, pornography, etc.; infiltrated by witches and warlocks who get in close with the leadership in order to turn them from the narrow way and truth and render them ineffective; permeated with ecumenism and its many Jesuses (Isa of Islam, christ-consciousness of New Age, Krishna of Hinduism, the Jesus of Catholicism whose mother is a co-redemptrix and who requires works in order to be fully saved, the Jesus of Mormonism who is brothers with Lucifer and who became god and taught us how to become gods too), and the belief that the Christian Jesus is not the only way to heaven.

And now there is a great schism taking place in the body of Christ today because the Church has refused to “bind and loose” as they ought. Though Scripture clearly teaches that we must loose away from us that which is unholy, and bind to us what is holy via Biblical judgment and loving correction (Matthew 18; 1 Corinthians 5; 2 Timothy 2:23-26), believers of the western world are not well-versed in Scripture anymore, and they are indeed, perishing for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). For according to a Probe Ministries survey 70% of Christians today do not think that Jesus is the only way for everyone, and only half of Protestant pastors have a Biblical worldview. And according to “American Worldview Inventory published…by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University…of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview.” (sources listed below)

It is no wonder then that so many can be and are deceived!

Last week Pastor Dana Coverstone shared a recent dream he has had that he entitled, “The Halloween Dream.” In this dream, Pastor Dana is late to the Sunday morning service at church, and as he runs into the church and toward the sanctuary he is told that he is late several times. After initially being barred from the sanctuary, he finally enters and encounters a crowd of Christians most of whom are dressed in costumes of witches and goblins, Bob the Builder, and kids dressed up like as if they were adult doctors and lawyers. The man speaking at the front was wearing a clerical robe and collar, and he was saying that the Ten Commandments were outdated “in practice and in principle” and that “a new set of ideas was needed” and that everyone should be able to do whatever they want to do because “grace is our friend more than our foe”.

There were a few in the audience who were not wearing costumes, and who were visibly though quietly disagreeing with the speaker.

Pastor Dana is then accosted by one of the ushers and told to quit noticing things and told to put on a costume. But, Pastor Dana did not comply and shouted, “What kind of church is this?” To which the man at the podium replied, “this is our church and we make the rules around here.” At that response, Pastor Dana ran to the front of the church and stated point blank, “By questioning the Ten Commandments you are violating the foundation of Scripture.” To which the minister replied, “We no longer need Scripture to live right. We must allow culture to guide us.”

At that moment Jesus entered the back of the church and marched to the front where He stated to the man at the front, “You can try to keep me out, you can discount my word, but I will not be silent or locked out.” At that, He walked up to the minister and took a hold of his face and took off the mask he was wearing, and behind the mask was a demonic pasty face. And everyone gasped. The speaker tried to speak, but Jesus said, “You will speak no more!” and breathed on the pale face until it disappeared like a wisp of smoke.

Jesus then said to the crowd, “As I expose the truth you’ll be given the chance to take your mask off. If not, your circumstances will tear them from your face and take your eyes with them. You that know the word know better. And those that never studied my word will stay dressed in a costume and miss heaven because you chose to remain in ignorance. Even if you hide from the truth it will confront you, and it will confront you to the front of your face.”

Jesus then said to Coverstone, “It’s not too late to warn the body as there are still many who will hear it. But woe to those who refuse to listen at this point.”

Ushers were attempting to keep people inside the church, but many were trying to leave. Costumes had been taken off, and many seats were empty. The majority remained behind however. After finally exiting with great effort, about 50 people in the parking lot questioned what was next. Coverstone then stated that Jesus had told them to warn the others. Thus, they all dispersed in every direction to do just that. The dream had started in the morning, but was now ending with the sun setting quickly. The time was short, the night was coming fast.

All that I have written about today is exactly this. God is shaking the church, and the masks are coming off. There is filth in the body of Christ, and it is being exposed. Church denominations are splitting over the transgender abomination, and other heresies and doctrines of devils are being revealed. And though, “evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived,” (2 Timothy 3:13) it is clear that we are not to “14… be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God.” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16). For we “…are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light…” (1 Peter 2:9), and are called to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:15-16). Indeed we are not our own but are bought at a price (1 Corinthiains 6:19-20), and are now the righteousness of God in Christ (2 Corinthians 5) who are being conformed into the image of Jesus (Roman 8).

And it is time to shine. It is time to get our lights out from under the bed. It is time to quit sitting idly by while ministers or any so-called Christian spew blasphemy from the pulpit or elsewhere. We are children of light, children of the day, and that light cannot help but expose darkness wherever we go!

8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9(for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. 12For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. 14Therefore

He says:

“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
15See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16redeeming the time, because the days are evil.

17Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5)

This battle has gone on for ages, and Jesus has already made us more than conquerors (Romans 8). The battle that Martin Luther faced is before us still today. But, he made the choice to nail up those 95 Theses on October 31, 1517, and to stand unwaveringly in the face of a death sentence in 1521. And many before and after him made the same stand against the Goliath of their time, steadfastly persevering and even dying for the sake of the truth of the Gospel. They chose to live unadulterated and unpopular lives of holiness, to shine their lights into the darkness, to not become weary in well doing. Youth died because they owned a Bible or would not say the Rosary; uncompromising men and women of all ages outspokenly stood against the heresy of their times at any cost. For they knew that their lives were not their own. They belonged to Christ and him alone, and marched to the beat of a different drummer, heads lifted up looking for their redemption that was drawing near with every step. They died to themselves daily and counted themselves as already dead for the cause of Christ.

Why then do we, who have such a great cloud of witnesses, march so out of step and to the tune of the Pied Piper of this world instead of the cause of Christ? Why are we so lukewarm when the power of the Holy Spirit is still for us today and readily at hand if we would but press in and zealously seek that we might find? Why are we so dim when we are the lights of this ever darkening world?

Now is not the time for compromise in the name of some hybrid unbiblical love! Jesus is coming back for a Bride unpolluted by this world, unstained and untainted, holy and set apart, standing on His promises, people of unadulterated faith, shining out like stars in this wicked and depraved generation, holding forth the word of life!!!!!!!!!! Now is the time to stand, for we can do no other – so help us God!

Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready.

Vigilantly,

Former Satanist Warns Christians about Celebrating Halloween,” 2019, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgULwKiAQfs

Quote: At the beginning of this video following the heading of ‘Should Christians Celebrate an Alternative Festival in Place of Halloween?’ Former Satanist John Ramirez responds, “Why would you take something that is demonic and slap the name of Jesus on it? Jesus isn’t going to show up and bless your stuff.”

At the 40 second mark after the heading ‘5 Reasons Why Christians Should Not Celebrate Halloween’ he begins to list them beginning with #1 Legal Rights, #2 Eternal Mistake, #3 Satanists Celebrate, #4 We Bring It Into Our Churches, and #5 Demonic Candies

At 1 minute and 5 second mark he says, “Even as a Christian you could say ‘I’m a Christian and I love God’ but you are cheating on Him on Halloween. When you dress up for Halloween…you are giving the devil the legal rights to change your identity.”

At the 1 minute and 25 second mark he says, “Anton Lavae…priest of the church of Satan…a devil worshiper for many, many years. He had 8,000 people in his church…he said, ‘I want to thank every Christian parent for allowing their children at least one time a year to celebrate my holiday.’”

At 2 minute and 25 second mark, “I don’t see Satantist…saying…’Good Friday’s coming, can I come to your church? Could I come celebrate Good Friday with you because’…I don’t hear Satanists packing out churches on Good Friday…”

At the 4 minute mark, “I’m gonna tell you as an ex-devil worshiper for 25 years…a lot of these candies that you give your kids that you buy in the store for Halloween, they are prayed for…demonic people have prayed over these candies…they pray over these costumes…”

Why are we trying to redeem that? If it’s the matter of…the nostalgia you want…why as a Kingdom follower are you wanting to participate in something that could open a demonic door? We know that the devil is manipulative…and he’s sneaky. So something that might be as seemingly innocent as bobbing for apples or having a little party or putting a costume…you don’t want to entertain something that belongs to…the evil one…that would open a door to demonic entities…don’t get involved in it. Don’t do it.”

Nearly 70% of born-again Christians say other religions can lead to heaven – study,” October 21, 2021, https://www.christianpost.com/news/nearly-70-percent-of-born-again-christians-dont-see-jesus-as-only-way.html

Quote: “Nearly 70% of born-again Christians disagree with the biblical position that Jesus is the only way to God, according to a new survey from Probe Ministries, a nonprofit that seeks to help the Church in renewing the minds of believers with a Christian worldview…The survey also found that among the top reasons given by born-again Christians for not telling others about their faith is the acceptance of pluralism. When asked why they don’t share their beliefs with others, born-again respondents chose “They can get to Heaven through their different religious belief,” “We shouldn’t impose our ideas on others,” and “The Bible tells us not to judge others” as their top three responses, respectively…confusion among Christians and what they believe was also recently reflected in the American Worldview Inventory published last month by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University. Of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview. The study showed, in general, that while a majority of America’s self-identified Christians, including many who identify as evangelical, believe that God is all-powerful, all-knowing and is the Creator of the universe, more than half reject a number of biblical teachings and principles, including the existence of the Holy Spirit.

Strong majorities were also found to errantly believe that all religious faiths are of equal value, people are basically good and that people can use acts of goodness to earn their way into Heaven. The study further showed that majorities don’t believe in moral absolutes, consider feelings, experience or the input of friends and family as their most trusted sources of moral guidance, and say that having faith matters more than which faith you pursue.”

House Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill with GOP Help,” July 22, 2022, https://www.christian-heritage-news.com/2022/07/house-passes-same-sex-marriage-bill.html

QUOTE: “The U.S. House of Representatives voted July 19 to codify same-sex marriage into law with the help of one-fifth of its Republican members and to the chagrin of Southern Baptist leaders.

With all the Democrats and 47 Republicans voting in favor, the House approved the Respect for Marriage Act in a 267-157 roll call. The proposal would repeal the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and require federal and state recognition of same-sex marriages considered legal in the jurisdiction where they took place…

The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission “stands firmly opposed to this legislation, and it should not make any more advances in the legislative process,” said Brent Leatherwood, the ERLC’s acting president. “Its passage by the House is yet another reminder of how far our culture has moved away from the biblical understanding of marriage as being between one man and one woman for life and why God’s design for that union is meant for our flourishing.

“Marriage is bound up in the Gospel itself and so, regardless of any act of Congress, it is imperative that we, as Christians, continue to show how it is a picture of Christ joining with His bride, the church,” Leatherwood told Baptist Press in written comments.

Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said the vote shows the country’s “political class has decided to vote for same-sex marriage, and 47 House Republicans decided to get aboard the train.”

“Yesterday, those of us who know that marriage is and can only be the union of a man and a woman found ourselves facing the undeniable reality that our political class will not rise to defend society’s most fundamental institution,” Mohler wrote in a column Wednesday (July 20) for WORLD Opinions.”

QUOTE: “After months of preparation, a theologically conservative denomination has broken away from the Reformed Church in America, with 43 congregations joining the new body on New Year’s Day…

“Now the realignment that began in the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is reaching the Dutch Reformed – but without the lawsuits and acrimony that characterized some of those prior splits,” wrote Walton

Reformed Church in America to Split over LGBT Issues,” January 13, 2022, https://www.standingforfreedom.com/2022/01/reformed-church-in-america-to-split-over-lgbt-issues/

QUOTE: “A conservative group in the Reformed Church in America (RCA) has left the denomination and formed the Alliance of Reformed Churches (ARC) due to disagreements over same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy. Same-sex marriage and LGBT-identifying clergy have caused splits in many denominations and now the RCA will split as well. At the RCA’s 214th General Synod last October, the denomination set in motion the split after longstanding disagreements over LGBT issues.Churches that hold to the biblical view of marriage will be allowed to seek another denominational home, including the ARC, without giving up their assets and buildings…Some are concerned that the RCA, a denomination with less than 200,000 members and 1,000 churches, will not survive the split.”

America’s Oldest Denomination Faces Split Over LGBT Issues,” October 14, 2021, https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2021/october/reformed-church-in-america-rca-synod-lgbt-split-denom.html

QUOTE: “This week, North America’s oldest denomination will confront its gridlock over LGBTQ ordination and same-sex marriage. Votes cast in Tucson at the Reformed Church in America’s General Synod—delayed 16 months due to the pandemic—will chart the course for the already-splintering denomination…

The RCA is a historically Dutch Reformed denomination dating back to the 1620s, when New York was known as New Amsterdam. Today, the RCA has fewer than 200,000 members and 1,000 churches. While in theory RCA churches are united by their polity, history, and Reformed convictions, they hold a range of political and theological beliefs.

The RCA isn’t the only Protestant denomination facing division over views on sexuality. Next year, the United Methodist Church is expected to vote on a proposal to split the denomination over the inclusion of LGBTQ members, and the RCA’s sister denomination, the Christian Reformed Church, will grapple with its contentious human sexuality report at its own synod.”

Christian Reformed Church Codifies Homosexual Sin as Sin in its Declaration of Faith,” June 15, 2022, https://religionnews.com/2022/06/15/christian-reformed-church-votes-to-codify-homosexual-sex-as-sin-in-its-declaration-of-faith/

QUOTE: ““The Christian Reformed Church, a small evangelical denomination of U.S. and Canadian churches, voted Wednesday (June 15) at its annual synod to codify its opposition to homosexual sex by elevating it to the status of confession, or declaration of faith.

The 123-53 vote at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, caps a process begun in 2016 when a previous synod voted to form a study committee to bring a report on the “biblical theology” of sexuality.

The vote, following a long day of debate, approves a list of what the denomination calls sexual immorality it won’t tolerate, including “adultery, premarital sex, extra-marital sex, polyamory, pornography and homosexual sex.””

Christian & Missionary Alliance (The Alliance)

Statement on Sexuality,” updated February 2019, https://cdn.cmalliance.org/wordpress/cmalliance/42-H3-Statement-on-Sexuality-3-15-22.pdf

QUOTE: “Any rebellion against God’s perfect design is sin. It separates us from God and distorts intimacy… Some seek to redefine the created nature of our sexuality in rebellion
(Romans 1:24–27). They desire the intimacy or pleasure of sex apart from the divinely
established context of marriage between a man and woman (1 Corinthians 6:16; cf. Genesis
2:24), such as homosexual or extra-marital sexual activity. Others seek an illusion of intimacy
through actively indulging in lust, fantasizing, and/or pornography. All of these are
indicators of our rebellion against God.”

Assemblies of God

Homosexuality, Marriage, and Sexual Identity,” 2014, https://ag.org/Beliefs/Position-Papers/Homosexuality-Marriage-and-Sexual-Identity

QUOTE: “Increasing political and religious advocacy for homosexual1 practices, same-sex marriage, and alternate sexual identities has prompted us to clarify our position on these critical issues. We believe that all matters of faith and conduct must be evaluated on the basis of Holy Scripture, which is our infallible guide (2 Timothy 3:16–17). Since the Bible does speak to the nature of human beings and their sexuality, it is imperative that the Church correctly understands and articulates what it actually teaches on these matters which have now become so controversial and divisive.

A reaffirmation of biblical teachings has become all the more urgent because writers sympathetic to the LGBT (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender)2 communities have advanced revisionist interpretations of relevant biblical texts that are based upon biased exegesis and mistranslation. In effect, they seek to set aside almost two thousand years of Christian biblical interpretation and ethical teachings. We believe these efforts are reflective of the conditions described in 2 Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.”3 (See also v. 4.)

It should be noted at the outset that there is absolutely no affirmation of homosexual activity, same-sex

marriage, or changes in sexual identity found anywhere in Scripture. Male and female genders are

carefully defined and unconfused. The consistent ideal for sexual experience in the Bible is chastity4

for those outside a monogamous heterosexual marriage and fidelity5 for those inside such a marriage. There is also abundant evidence that homosexual behavior, along with illicit heterosexual behavior, is immoral and comes under the judgment of God.”

It ends by stating, “Christians should also do all they can to assist the person who has struggled with homosexual behaviors and desires to change and find deliverance. Change is not always easy but it is possible. It may require the help of others in the body of Christ, such as counselors and pastors, as well as a supportive church fellowship. Christian organizations are also available to help those who seek to change their lifestyles.

We desire all to be reconciled to God—to experience the peace and joy that stems from the forgiveness of sin through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. God does not want any to perish in their sins; He invites all to accept His offer of eternal life (John 3:16). As part of His church, we issue that invitation to life in Christ to everyone.”

QUOTE: Under the heading, ‘General Assembly Declaration and Apologetic of Marriage,’ it says, “We, the Presiding Bishop, the General Board and the Board of Bishops of the Church of God in Christ, solemnly proclaim that the institution of marriage was established and ordained by God
(Genesis 2:24) …We believe that the homosexual practices of same-sex couples are in violation of religious and social norms and are aberrant and deviant behavior. We believe that these unions are sinful and in direct violation of the law of God in that they are a deviation from the natural use and purpose of the body….in spite of the progressive normalization of alternative lifestyles and the growing legal acceptance of same-sex unions; we declare our opposition to any deviation from traditional
marriages of male and female. Notwithstanding the rulings of the court systems of the land in
support of same-sex unions; we resolve that the Church of God in Christ stand resolutely firm
and never allow the sanctioning of same-sex marriages by its clergy nor recognize the
legitimacy of such unions.”

Under the heading ‘Statement of Faith in Human Rights Declaration’: “The Church of God in Christ utterly rejects and uncompromisingly denounces the practice of
homosexuality. Homosexual relationships are a violation of the biblical teaching on marriage and are
strongly condemned in the scriptures… At the same time, as Christians we
are called to treat all sinners with compassion and to lovingly proclaim the message of salvation and
restoration to all, recognizing that we are all sinners in need of the atoning gift of Christ’s death and
resurrection. Therefore for the Christian homosexual marriage is not a human right, nor a morally and
legally sanctioned entitlement. Sexual preferences do not constitute rights.”

QUOTE: “Episcopal clergy are highlighting The Episcopal Church’s support for LGBTQ couples this week while condemning an announcement by the Vatican that it would not allow blessing of same-sex unions because the relationships are seen by the Roman Catholic Church as sinful…

The Episcopal Church’s General Convention first approved liturgies for blessing same-sex unions in 2012. After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in 2015, that year’s General Convention approved trial-use marriage rites for use by all couples. A follow-up measure in 2018 sought to ensure same-sex couples had access to those rites in all of the church’s domestic dioceses.”

QUOTE: “We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of gender, sexual identity or orientation.

We believe that God loves us all – no exceptions.”

QUOTE: “On Wednesday, June 20, the Presbyterian Church took a historic step by voting unanimously to accept three Overtures submitted at their biennial conference in Missouri. The Overtures both celebrate LGBTQ people of faith and speak out against religious freedom being used to discriminate against the LGBTQ community…

The Church’s move is in line with growing support in the LGBTQ nondiscrimination movement from religious leaders and congregations around the country. Last year, nearly 1,300 faith leaders signed on to an amicus brief to the Supreme Court in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, which concerned a bakery that refused service to a same sex couple by citing their religious beliefs. The brief stated that religion cannot be used to justify discrimination, and that businesses must be open to all. Furthermore, the weekend before oral argument in the case, more than 100 congregations celebrated the National Weekend of Prayer for LGBTQ Justice.”

What Same-Sex Marriage Means to Presbyterians,” 2015, https://www.pcusa.org/news/2015/3/20/what-same-sex-marriage-means-presbyterians/

QUOTE: “…the Presbytery of the Palisades had cast its vote in favor of an amendment to the PC(USA) Constitution that would change the description of marriage from being between “a man and a woman” to being between “two people.” In doing so, it had become the 86th presbytery to cast an affirmative vote, providing the majority needed among 171 presbyteries to approve the change.”

“I think for evangelicals the mystifying question is how then does the church speak prophetically about anything, how do we call anyone to repentance, if we’re simply conforming to the culture? You can observe the dynamic and astounding evangelical fruit God is producing through [some] new denominations, and I have great hope that an evangelical Presbyterian movement is going to happen. I regret that’s going to happen outside the PC(USA). I do think, though, there is a potential for hope and benefit. Let’s start talking about definitions of goodness, holiness, beauty, and truth, and stop talking about sex. Start talking about what it means to be in Jesus Christ, in His goodness, holiness, beauty, and truth. And then ask whether we individually and corporately as a denomination are going to conform to these realities.” —Carmen Fowler LaBerge

QUOTE: “Conservatives have officially parted ways with the United Methodist Church (UMC) after years of debate on same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly gay pastors. The new denomination, called the Global Methodist Church, took effect on Sunday following a five-day meeting with UMC bishops. As CBN News has previously reported, church members have been at odds for years with some members in the United States leading the call for full inclusion of LGBTQ people within the denomination.

While other mainline Protestant denominations have embraced gay-friendly practices, the UMC still bans them, though acts of defiance by pro-LGBT clergy have multiplied. Many have performed same-sex weddings. Others have come out as gay or lesbian from the pulpit. 

Differences came to a head in February 2019 at a conference in St. Louis where delegates voted 438-384 for a proposal called the Traditional Plan, which strengthens bans on LGBT-inclusive practices. 

A majority of U.S.-based delegates opposed that plan and favored LGBT-friendly options, but they were outvoted by U.S. conservatives teamed with most of the delegates from Methodist strongholds in Africa and the Philippines…

Global Methodist organizers have launched a new website that states the new denomination would allow women to serve at all levels and seek membership.

Regarding LGBTQ issues, organizers said the denomination would adhere to “the traditional understanding of Christian marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman and as God’s intended setting for human sexual expression.”

QUOTE: “Boyette said the Transitional Leadership Council doesn’t know how many more will follow this summer. He did not have numbers Monday for how many clergy, churches or conferences had joined the denomination with the launch, but he believes hundreds of churches across the U.S. already have begun the process to disaffiliate from the United Methodist Church, and most will land in the Global Methodist Church.

“I don’t think anyone is dancing with joy that we are at this place in Methodism. I think there is a sadness that we have come to this and that we find ourselves in this season,” Boyette said.

Of the three leading Lutheran organizations operating in the United States, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is considered the most welcoming and inclusive of LGBTQ members. Formed in 1988 with the merger of three smaller Lutheran organizations, the ELCA is based in Chicago and encompasses nearly 10,000 congregations and more than 3.8 million members across the country…

LGBTQ ministers have been ordained by the ELCA since 2010. However, church policy, like that for same-sex marriage, gives individual congregations autonomy in calling ministers to serve.”

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with over 15 million members, traces its history to 1845 when it broke off from Northern Baptists over slavery. The roots of Southern Baptist history go back to the Baptist churches established in the American colonies in the 17th century.

“In 2017, top leaders of the SBC joined other evangelical leaders in a statement Aug. 29 denouncing LGBTQ people and their identities as “inconsistent with God’s holy purposes in creation and redemption.”

The Southern Baptist Convention does not ordain openly LGBTQ people, nor does it ordain women. However, alternative Baptist denominations such as the Alliance of Baptists do ordain both women and LGBTQ people.”

Although ABCUSA shares many traditions, beliefs and values with other Baptists, ABCUSA is a distinct entity from its relatives, the American Baptist Association (ABA), the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), the Alliance of Baptists, and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship…

A 1992 denominational vote determined “the practice of homosexuality” to be “incompatible with Christian teaching.” Noting that individual members of the denomination may not agree with all resolutions which are approved, the church does acknowledge that issues such as sexual orientation require full and continuous engagement in dialogue.

In 2006, more than 300 churches from the Pacific Southwest region of ABCUSA voted to withdraw from their 1.5-million member parent denomination after its leaders refused to address complaints about the membership of “welcoming and affirming” churches, or churches that accept as members unrepentant homosexuals, in the denomination…

LGBTQ ordination is not explicitly accepted nor banned in the American Baptist Churches USA. However, in several regions there are statements that a candidate must sign stating they are not a “practicing homosexual” prior to ordination.”

American Baptists Clarify Stance on Homosexuality,” https://www.christianpost.com/news/american-baptists-clarify-stance-on-homosexuality.html

QUOTE: “”The controversy over homosexuality has consumed our agenda, our discussion time, and our energy; yet the controversy still threatens to break us apart as American Baptists. The prevailing view among American Baptists is that “the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.” Because American Baptist polity allows for respectful dissent, individuals and congregations who hold different viewpoints exist among us.”

QUOTE: “Formed in the early 1800s in response to the practice of Christian denominations acting in exclusion of each other rather than collaboration, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have a history of reaching out to other traditions. They established the Council on Christian Unity in 1910 to foster inter-denominational community and were active in forming the National and World Councils of Churches. In 1989, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ formed a close partnership that emphasized shared global in global and domestic ministries.”

“With a total membership of approximately 600,000 people, individual congregations are organized in 32 self-governing regions across North America.”

“At the General Assembly in 2013, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) voted to affirm and welcome LGBTQ people in all aspects of church life, including leadership. While the resolution does not dictate policy for individual congregations, the denomination actively encourages congregations interested in becoming more inclusive.”

QUOTE: “The United Church of Christ, a mainline Protestant denomination with about 1.3 million members, has been one of the most accepting religious groups of LGBTQ people, although not every church in the denomination is supportive…the United Church of Christ (UCC) is recognized as one of the most welcoming and affirming Christian denominations, celebrating same-sex marriages since 2005 and ordaining LGBTQ pastors since 1972. Numbering more than 5,000 churches and close to a million members, the UCC core values include an “Extravagant Welcome,” and the affirmation, “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here.””

Churches for Sustainable Development,” 2022, https://www.lutheranworld.org/content/waking-giant

Quote: ‘Waking the Giant’ is a global ecumenical initiative of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF). It aims to empower churches to contribute effectively to the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. The initiative provides churches and church-related actors with tools and training to relate their on-going work to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the context of the global ‘Waking the Giant’ network, churches and church-related actors come together for experience exchange, mutual learning and joint action. LWF also supports churches and ecumenical partners in selected countries to set up implementation mechanisms for taking stock of their existing work in relation to the SDGs and engage in joint planning for direct action and advocacy…

In a worldly analogy to Christ’s promise to “make all things new” (Rev. 21.5), the SDGs represent an opportunity to enhance human dignity and our stewardship towards God’s creation…

Many churches have established themselves as important actors in the provision of social and development services and as advocates for global human values, such as gender equality, peace and justice. They distinguish themselves through the permanence of their presence, an often high level of credibility and a wide reach at community level, including to the remotest areas where state institutions may be absent.”

Operating in almost 100 nations, the alliance claims to be “the world’s largest and most representative coalition of religious and indigenous communities.” It is funded by Soros, the Rockefellers, the Ford Foundation, the UN Foundation, various UN agencies, U.S. taxpayers the State Department, and more.”

Pope Francis is a ‘Zealous Cooperator’ in the Great Reset and Seeks to Demolish Catholic Church, Archbishop says,” October 14, 2021, https://www.christianitydaily.com/articles/13606/20211014/pope-francis-zealous-cooperator-great-reset-seeks-demolish-catholic-church.htm

Quote: “Noted Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano has issued a scathing criticism on Pope Francis and his association with The Great Reset…

The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Klaus Schwab’s idea of the Fourth Economic Revolution, which is the basis for previous discussions of “The Great Reset,” is mentioned by Vigano right at the opening of the clip. He then mentions Pope Francis’ connected to this movement.

The archbishop accuses Pope Francis of being a “zealous cooperator” in the Great Reset. He said that the Pope wants to demolish the Church and replace it with an organization inspired by Masons.

“The fourth revolution theorized by Klaus Schwab and the family of international finance find in Bergoglio [Pope Francis], not a neutral spectator, which would itself already be an unheard- of thing, but actually a zealous cooperator who abuses his own moral authority in order to support ab extra, outside the church, the project of the dissolution of traditional society,” said the archbishop.”

The outlet went on to explain that the Pope seems unconcerned about spirituality or sin. More to the point, he is concerned about climate change and the downfall of capitalism. All of the Pope’s main contributions, in a nutshell, are in sync with the objectives of the WEF and its Great Reset.

In fact, in December, Forbes reported that Pope Francis has formed a shadow council of the world’s top businessmen to address capitalism’s flaws. They’re called the “Guardians.”

Also according to another allegation, a Benedictine Nun named “Mother Miriam” has a video going around social media warning people of a globalist depopulation plan. Pope Francis, according to the nun, is the spiritual head of the globalist elites – which includes Bill Gates and George Soros.

According to Mother Miriam, the COVID vaccine shots are part of the global elites’ depopulation plan.”

The Church is Already Committed to the Various Issues Considered at the World Economic Forum,” May 27, 2022, http://adventmessenger.org/vatican-news-the-catholic-church-is-already-committed-to-the-various-issues-considered-at-the-world-economic-forum/

Quote: On May 25, 2022, the Vatican News reported that the World Economic Forum and the Vatican’s global policies are in alignment and that the Vatican is already putting them into action. This was revealed during an interview with Catholic Priest Leonir Chiarello, who is “at the forefront of many WEF Forum agenda items at a global and local level.” [1]

The Vatican News reported the following:

“The Catholic Church is already committed to the various issues considered at the World Economic Forum, in Davos, both globally and locally … Just a few examples: the perspective proposed by Pope Francis on the care of nature and the promotion of a more inclusive economy in Laudato Si’ and Fratelli Tutti … The various programs for job creation, development, education, and health care, among other programs promoted by the Catholic organizations and religious congregations at global and local levels.”

Richard Land Under Fire for Connection to World Economic Forum,” June 19, 2022, https://capstonereport.com/2022/06/19/richard-land-under-fire-for-connection-to-world-economic-forum/38352/

Quote: The former head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) is under fire for his connections with globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF). The controversy erupted when Michael O’Fallon of Sovereign Nations shared an image of Dr. Richard Land with a briefcase carrying the logo of the World Economic Forum. O’Fallon posted the picture and then said, “Why is the SBC heading down a progressive, social justice, globalist paved path? This picture of the former President of the ERLC, Richard Land, is worth a thousand words. Focus on the briefcase…”

The World Economic Forum is a globalist organization pushing leftist goals such as Stakeholder Capitalism and concepts Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The WEF was all about the Leftist Build Back Better agenda in Westernnations. (For more on the WEF, read on.) The WEF is connected with other prominent evangelicals including Rick Warren.”

Rick Warren Promoted Churches to Fight a Pandemic at World Economic Forum,” February 2, 2022, https://capstonereport.com/2022/02/02/rick-warren-promoted-churches-to-fight-a-pandemic-at-world-economic-forum/37487/

Quote: “Southern Baptist pastor Rick Warren told the globalists of the World Economic Forum (WEF) how to use the church as a partner during a pandemic or similar emergency. Warren promoted the use of free church volunteers and as a “universal distribution” system while at the 2008 WEF event in Davos, Switzerland. Warren promoted the church as one leg of a three- legged partnership between government, business, and religion. This highlights a recent Daily Wire report showing a link between churches spreading government propaganda during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The video begins, “This is Rick Warren author of The Purpose Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church. I’m here at Davos with a lot of my friends and we’re talking about what are the biggest problems on the planet and how are we going to solve them. Right now, I think there are five that I call global giants: extreme poverty, pandemic diseases, illiteracy, corruption and the spiritual emptiness…

The entire report is important; however, it is this deserves special attention: “During Saddleback Pastor Rick Warren’s special broadcast with Collins on behalf of Health and Human Services, he mentioned that he and Collins first met when both were speakers for the billionaires and heads of state who gather annually in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. They reconnected recently, Warren revealed, at an ‘off-the- record’ meeting between Collins and ‘key faith leaders.’ Warren did not say, but one can make an educated guess as to who convened that meeting and for what purpose, given the striking similarity of Collins’ appearances alongside all these leading Christian lights.

Apparently, Warren attended the World Economic Forum at least during 2007 and 2008. Also, attending the WEF in 2008 was Brian McLaren.”

Why is Justice Department Investigating Southern Baptist Convention,” August 17, 2022, https://www.dailysignal.com/2022/08/17/why-is-justice-department-investigating-southern-baptist-convention/

Quote: “The nation’s largest conservative, Protestant denomination revealed on Friday it is under investigation by the Biden administration over claims of sexual abuse and harassment…

The Southern Baptist Convention outsourced a report examining how the executive committee handled sexual abuse reports between 2000 and 2021. An outside firm, Guidepost Solutions, reported in a 288-page report in May that one member of the Southern Baptist Convention’s executive committee compiled a list of 703 people “suspected of abuse” but never released it publicly. The report records “703 abusers” but notes curiously that only 409 are “believed to be SBC-affiliated at some point in time.”

Days after the report’s release, Guidepost Solutions tweeted its support for Pride Month and the LGBT movement. The Southern Baptist Convention subsequently printed a list of 205 pages of pastors, church workers, and volunteers “credibly accused” of abuse—a list, it notes, that includes cases that “resulted in an acquittal.” The report redacted the names and some details of those found innocent, or not accused of sexual impropriety—resulting in some entries with every detail blacked out.”

Quote: “Welcome. is a women’s group promoting evangelical involvement in immigration. Its website is welcomeimmigrants.org. That website’s Internet Registry information shows World Relief as its administrative contact, and an email contact address with the National Immigration Forum. The National Immigration Forum is a group funded by George Soros. Baptist Press promoted this women’s mission group in a story released September 12, 2019. Baptist Press detailed how Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty staffers explored the border at the invitation of an “online community of women” engaged in the immigration issue…

A review of the Internet registration for the Welcome. website, verifies the site was registered by World Relief and the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum. The National Immigration Forum (NIF) received millions of its funding from George Soros. (For links on the Evangelical Immigration Table and the National Immigration Forum to George Soros, see reports from National Review, The Institute on Religion and Democracy’s blog Juicy Ecumenism, the Center for Immigration Studies and The Christian Post.)…

This is not the first time Southern Baptist entities promoted a Soros-funded political propaganda arm promoting immigration. As previously reported, in 2017, the ERLC tweeted out Soros-funded immigration videos made by the group Christiandreamers.us. Later, Baptist Press published a story on one of the ChristianDreamers.us leaders.

Southern Baptist leadership including ERLC [ethics and religious liberty commission] employees have tweeted their support for open borders policies and promoted anti- Christian groups like the George Soros funded Media Matters…

So, why do so-called conservative Southern Baptists tweet out propaganda from Soros- funded groups like Media Matters and Christiandreamers.US? Why do ERLC employees attend a trip for a group created by a Soros-funded pro-immigration group? Why did Baptist Press promote a pro-immigrant group that is in partnership with the Soros-funded National Immigration Forum?

The goal is to transform the church.”

Quote: “Well, likely because Soros and his money have infiltrated many so-called Christian organizations. Soros has funded the National Immigration Forum. That group funded the Evangelical Immigration Table. Our Southern Baptist ERLC has even tweeted out immigration propaganda produced directly by the National Immigration Forum through the Christiandreamers.us website—a website created and controlled directly from Washington, DC by the National Immigration Forum.

“Christianity in a Postmodern Crisis,” July 30, 2018, Michael O’Fallon,https://sovereignnations.com/2018/07/30/christianity-in-a-postmodern-crisis/

Quote: “The Protestant evangelical church has been a massive conservative force over the past 50 years. With nearly 40 million members, evangelicals are normally politically active, voting for their morals as well as for the preservation of our republic.

But something has happened over the past 7 years or so that has radically changed the priorities and mission of the largest evangelical seminaries and churches in the United States.  Seminaries previously focused on Scriptural exegesis and proclamation are now focusing on teaching their future pastors postmodern concepts such as critical race theory and intersectionality.  Churches throughout the nation are pushing progressive agendas along with the teaching of unconscious bias training and the deceptive idea of ‘white privilege’.

Faithful church members are being encouraged to reject constitutional conservatives and to embrace open borders, reject normative patriotism, and embrace progressive concepts and social justice policies normally reserved for radical socialists or open society adherents.”

“Religion May Be Bigger Business Than We Thought,” January 5, 2017, https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2017/01/religion-bigger-business-than-we-thought

Quote: “In 1992 James Holly, a Southern Baptist medical doctor, requested that the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) conduct a study of Freemasonry. It was agreed, and Dr. Holly wrote a 70+page article that summarized his investigation: “Freemasonry Watch: The Southern Baptist
Convention and Freemasonry.” Setting aside the study that was done, the SBC published its
report on Freemasonry in 1993, noting SBC leaders who were also Masons, points of
agreement between Freemasonry and Christianity, and areas of disagreement between the
two. At that Convention the following recommendation was approved:

“In light of the fact that many tenets and teachings of Freemasonry are not compatible
with Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, while others are compatible with
Christianity and Southern Baptist doctrine, we therefore recommend that consistent
with our denomination’s deep convictions regarding the priesthood of the believer and
the autonomy of the local church, membership in a Masonic Order be a matter of
personal conscience. Therefore, we exhort Southern Baptists to prayerfully and carefully
evaluate Freemasonry in the light of the Lordship of Christ, the teachings of the
Scripture, and the findings of this report, as led by the Holy Spirit of God.” H11-6 Last Revision Board of Directors February 2010

The Masons responded by publishing the following:
“Because of your support, the vote of the Southern Baptist Convention is a historic and
positive turning point for Freemasonry. Basically, it is a vitalization of our Fraternity by
America’s largest Protestant denomination after nearly a year of thorough, scholarly
study. At the same time, it is a call to renewed effort on the part of all Freemasons today
to re-energize our Fraternity and move forward to fulfilling its mission as the world’s
foremost proponent of Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God” (The Scottish
Rite Journal, Aug. 1993).

Free Masonry Watch: The Southern Baptist Convention and Freemasonry,” originally written in 1992, https://www.freemasonrywatch.org/holly.html

Note: Though Dr. Holly suggests at the beginning of his article that everything within the SBC was resolved in the 1993 statement, upon reading the above, it was not resolved at all. In fact, the Freemasons praised the convention’s decision and thanked them for the support. That is not resolved, at least not in the correct way.

Quote: This booklet has been prepared with a prayer for revival among Southern Baptists. It does not pretend that the only problem hindering revival is Freemasonry. It does recognize however that the leaven of the occult will corrupt the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ and will sap her vitality.

The men who are involved in Freemmasonry, on the whole, are not evil men. Yet, they are men who are being used for an evil purpose. It is the spirit which empowers the Lodge which we wish to expose. The ludicrousness of the secret words and the secret handshakes would be laughable if it were not for the spirit behind Freemasonry. The spirit makes this more than a bad joke, it makes the issue of Freemasonry among Southern Baptists a serious issue of life…

“WHAT ARE SOUTHERN BAPTISTS TO DO ABOUT FREEMASONRY? *

“The intent of this booklet is to encourage the Southern Baptist Convention to take a stand on the issue of Freemasonry, and then for each individual church to apply that stand as they are led by the Lord. Recently, an African pastor, led to Christ by a Southern Baptist missionary, was asked, “What are the hind- rances to revival among Southern Baptists?” He said: “rebellion…ignorance of the supernatural (spiritual warfare, not charismatic gifts)…and the toleration of Freemasonry in the church.”

How each of our hearts yearn for the Holy Spirit empowered, Christ-honoring, life-changing revival to sweep America. It may happen. It can happen. We can be a part of it happening. Prayerfully read this booklet and support the S.B.C.’s declaring of Freemasonry to be incompatible with the message of the Bible and with the ministry of the church.

James L. Holly M.D.”

What Is Really Going On: Atrocity at the U.S. Border and Beyond

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

We are on the verge of living out the book of Revelation, thus one thing after another is happening, and one thing after another is being revealed. One such thing is an element regarding that of great Babylon as spoken of in Revelation 18. Beginning in verse eleven we read, “11“And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple…every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13…wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep…and bodies and souls of men. 14The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all…20“Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!””

To begin with, this article is not about who the city of Babylon is, but rather the fact that “bodies and souls” of human beings are a part of their merchandise. Have you ever thought about what this means? Did you know that this has been happening and is unfolding even now via both slave labor and the sex slave trade, both of which are worldwide?

Likely you will have already heard about this by now. But how many of us have allowed it to touch our hearts? And how many of us have connected it to this passage of Scripture?

Likely also, everyone is aware of America’s southern border issue. Many Americans are outraged by the invasion and full of vitriol toward the present administration for inviting them and allowing them to come in freely. Streaming across the border are hordes from nations around the world, including drug dealers, terrorists, murders, and the like. Along with these there are also those who have come because they grabbed hold of the hope-filled words of the present administration for a better future and provision.

On top of this, there is a story, a question that is essentially going uninvestigated and under reported. The question is:What is happening to the children?

Did you know that at this point over 275,000 unaccompanied minors have crossed our southern border since 2021?

Think about that for even just a few seconds. Think about your own children or grandchildren or great grandchildren being unaccompanied in a foreign land. Think about them being without security or protection, hoping that they will be taken care of in America, trusting that nameless strangers will care for your child. Think about your darling little seven year old girl venturing out on her own, or your little ten year old boy. Can you even comprehend it?

America is no longer the land of the 1950s with June Cleaver (of the program Leave it to Beaver) baking and frosting triple layer cakes in the kitchen while Beaver (her son) plays innocently outside with his friends. This is not the land of cute Disney characters like the little deer named Bambi with his two innocent friends Thumper (a cute little gray rabbit) and Flower (a cute little skunk). The horrible truth is that this is a nation filled with grave evil including transgender confusion, and doctors more than willing to slice and dice their sexuality to smithereens for the sake of profit. America is a nation of drug addicts and drug dealers who would love to have a naive little one do the dirty work for them. America is a land wherein Witchcraft of all varieties are actively and aggressively rising to the third most popular religion. It is a land of pimps who are looking for fresh flesh to use at the highest bidder, and of those who would greedily sell a young, strong child to hard labor for manufacturing companies and corporations. It is a land of the “dark web” and vial filth of Hollywood and depravity in both high and low places, including some fronted even by our military.

Not only this, but it is an America rife with civil war, talk of nuclear bombs and economic collapse, people dropping dead from the vaccine, tyranny rising unhindered with the ushering in of the new world order, rivers and reservoirs drying up, crops dying from weather related issues, perfectly good cattle being killed for no reason, famine just around the corner… and God’s blessing lifted.

It is into this mess that 275,000+ children have fearfully ventured unaccompanied and unprotected. 275,000 plus and counting. 275,000. Where are they? What is being done with them?

Have you ever wondered about them? Do you seriously think the illegal immigrant children are safe?

The foster kids in America aren’t safe. Why on earth would the little unprotected children at the southern boarder be safe. Here are some stats on the foster care system to make this point. “There are 500,000 kids in foster care today [2017]…70% of the inmates in prison across this country [the U.S.] have touched the foster care system, and 80% of the people on death row were at some point in time exposed to the foster care system. 50% of these kids will not graduate high school, and 95% of them will not get a college degree. But the most staggering statistic that I found was that foster care children are 4x more likely to be exposed to sexual abuse. That is a breeding ground for trafficking…the reason I looked at foster care…it is a microcosm, it’s a sample set that we have pretty extraordinary data around…for what happens when displacement happens abroad…when people are left out, when they’re neglected, when they’re not supported, and when they’re not given the love that they need to grow, it becomes an incubator for trafficking. And this refugee crisis – if you, if we want to be serious about ending slavery we cannot ignore it…” (Ashton Kutcher link below) And according to Russ Dizdar, “Human trafficking is the third largest organized crime…it’s a billion dollar industry.”

Now, as for immigrant children, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime,“All smuggling of children, and a significant proportion of child trafficking, occurs in the context of child migration. Children, including those who are alone and those accompanied by family members, comprise an increasing percentage of irregular migrants globally. While cross-border movements of children are difficult to measure, data from numerous organizations and governments illustrates the scale of the issue…As observed by the 2018 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons (p. 13), “[t]he trafficking of children – particularly girls – remains a key concern”. Like smuggling of children, the true scale of trafficking in children is not known. Nonetheless, the proportion of victims of trafficking who are children is substantial: 30 per cent of detected victims are children…Children on the move are especially vulnerable to being placed in situations of trafficking. This is particularly the case when children are travelling without a parent or legal guardian, even if they are in the company of other migrants. They may be extorted for smuggling fees, forced to work to pay off debts in transit countries, and may be sexually and physically harassed, abused or exploited. Trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation is particularly common…” (source below, emphasis mine).

If our own American foster kids are not safe, then why would these unprotected, unaccompanied, unknown children be safe?

I’ve not even begun to scratch the surface of this issue, but I pray that I have disclosed enough for you as Christians to be aware and pray and do whatever God instructs you to do regarding it.

I had not allowed myself to wonder about the children at the border, nor had I been praying for them until I came upon this information just recently. There have been so many other things stacking one atop the other that so fills my mind, heart and prayers, so many burdens, so much so that it is quite overwhelming. But, this is not something to turn a blind eye to.

After all, James 1:27 states, “Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.” And then there is Psalm 41:1 that says, “… Blessed is he who considers the poor; The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.” Furthermore, according to Proverbs 31 godly leaders are to “8Open your mouth for the speechless, In the cause of all who are appointed to die. 9Open your mouth, judge righteously, And plead the cause of the poor and needy.” And according to Ephesians 5, we all as children of light are to expose the darkness not allow it to remain hidden. The darkness should not be allowed to hide in our presence for we are light, and that light is not to be shut off at any point in time for any reason. We are light. It is our identity, and as such we are to expose the evil. This is imperative.

The Lord who is “5A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,” Psalm 68:5a, is calling us as Christians to care, to ask questions, to look for answers, to pray for them, to do our part whatever that may be. The Lord will show each of us what that is.

In agreement with Psalm 7 I will conclude,

9Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,
But establish the just;
For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.
10My defense is of God,
Who saves the upright in heart.

11God is a just judge,
And God is angry with the wicked every day.
12If he does not turn back,
He will sharpen His sword;
He bends His bow and makes it ready.
13He also prepares for Himself instruments of death;
He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

14Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;
Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.
15He made a pit and dug it out,
And has fallen into the ditch which he made.
16His trouble shall return upon his own head,
And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.

17I will praise the Lord according to His righteousness,
And will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.” (Psalm 7:9-17)

Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready.

Children on the Move, Smuggling and Trafficking,” May 2019, https://www.unodc.org/e4j/en/tip-and-som/module-12/key-issues/children-on-the-move–smuggling-and-trafficking.html

Quote: According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime,“All smuggling of children, and a significant proportion of child trafficking, occurs in the context of child migration. Children, including those who are alone and those accompanied by family members, comprise an increasing percentage of irregular migrants globally. While cross-border movements of children are difficult to measure, data from numerous organizations and governments illustrates the scale of the issue…As observed by the 2018 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons (p. 13), “[t]he trafficking of children – particularly girls – remains a key concern”. Like smuggling of children, the true scale of trafficking in children is not known. Nonetheless, the proportion of victims of trafficking who are children is substantial: 30 per cent of detected victims are children…Children on the move are especially vulnerable to being placed in situations of trafficking. This is particularly the case when children are travelling without a parent or legal guardian, even if they are in the company of other migrants. They may be extorted for smuggling fees, forced to work to pay off debts in transit countries, and may be sexually and physically harassed, abused or exploited. Trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation is particularly common…”

Russ Dizdar on Satanic Ritual Abuse “I know of kids that are in cages and tortured”,” 2017,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkSAv6XBbek&t=302s

Ashton Kutcher Speech on Trafficking Before Congress,” February 15, 2017, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUmfsvegMRo

Quote: At about the 6 and a half minute mark, he explains that the “Dark Web” was created in the mid 90s by the Naval research lab called Tor.

“There are 500,000 kids in foster care today…70% of the inmates in prison across this country [the U.S.] have touched the foster care system, and 80% of the people on death row were at some point in time exposed to the foster care system. 50% of these kids will not graduate high school, and 95% of them will not get a college degree. But the most staggering statistic that I found was that foster care children are 4x more likely to be exposed to sexual abuse. That is a breeding ground for trafficking…the reason I looked at foster care…it is a microcosm, it’s a sample set that we have pretty extraordinary data around…for what happens when displacement happens abroad…when people are left out, when they’re neglected, when they’re not supported, and when they’re not given the love that they need to grow, it becomes an incubator for trafficking. And this refugee crisis – if you, if we want to be serious about ending slavery we cannot ignore it…”

“The solution sets [of ending sex slavery versus labor slavery] are highly differential. When you look at sex trafficking, a victim is most often present at the incident of commerce. And this provides opportunity for drastic intervention. Whereas in labor trafficking the victims are being hidden behind the manufacturers and the merchandisers, and it requires an entirely different set of legislation and pro-activity and enforcement in order to shut it down…if we ask those corporations under extreme pressure that if you don’t change it you are going to be penalized, and if you don’t clean up that pipeline it’s going to mean trouble…either clean up the pipeline abroad or they can move the jobs to the United States of America where they can be regulated…

Now, it’s not lost on me all of this disruption in the marketplace is going to have economic backlash…but I ask you, did you believe that Abraham Lincoln had to consider the economic backlash of shutting down the cotton fields in the south when he shut down slavery? ‘Cause I’m sure that weighed on his mind.”

Taking On the Dark Web: Law Enforcement Experts ID Investigative Needs,” June 15, 2020, https://nij.ojp.gov/topics/articles/taking-dark-web-law-enforcement-experts-id-investigative-needs

Quote:The “dark web” is an internet shadow world where the good and the bad co-exist. On the good side, the dark web provides anonymous, highly secure communication channels to shield classified government activity and protect reform agents such as human rights activists and journalists opposed by oppressive foreign regimes. On the bad side, the dark web has emerged as an important hub of criminal commerce, a fully functional marketplace where hidden customers can buy from hidden sellers with relative confidence, often with customer ratings available, just as on the public-facing web…The criminal side of the dark web relies on anonymizing technology and cryptocurrency to hide its trade in an assortment of contraband such as opioids and other drugs, bomb parts, weapons large and small, child pornography, social security numbers, body parts — even criminal acts for hire. The dark web’s anonymity not only encourages illegal activities, it keeps many law enforcement agencies largely unaware of its existence, even while their jurisdictions are impacted by online transactional crimes.”

The dark web is a portion of the “dark net,” a segment of the internet employing encryption and anonymizing technology designed to prevent tracking. For purposes of the workshop, the dark web was defined as those hyperlinked services on the dark net accessible only through The Onion Router (or Tor) protocol or similar protocols. Tor is a specially configured browser enabling users to access services on the web in ways that are difficult or impossible to trace. Typical web browsers reveal their unique IP (Internet Protocol) address, making them traceable by law enforcement. But a dark web browser issues a false IP address, using a series of relays, to mask the user’s identity.A significant portion of dark web activity is lawful.

The Tor browser itself was initially developed by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in the 1990s and released to the public in 2002. Tor’s original purpose, the RAND report noted, was “to conceal the identities of American operatives or dissidents attempting to communicate within oppressive regimes.” The anonymizing browser is also used by some journalists working internationally, the report said. The fact that the dark web is highly anonymized and encrypted, however, also attracts illicit conduct. One study[1] estimated that 57 percent of dark websites facilitate illicit activity, according to the RAND report.”

“Fentanyl sales on the dark web have been a major focus of U.S. law enforcement. Other potential illegal activities include identity theft, blueprint distribution, human trafficking, and weapon sales.”

CIA Launches Official Tor Site to Communicate on Dark Web,” May 7, 2019, https://www.fedscoop.com/tor-cia-dark-web-onion-router-site/

Quote: “Spy agencies have long been at home on the dark web, as Tor was developed with U.S. intelligence in mind by the Naval Research Lab “for the primary purpose of protecting government communications.” But now it’s used by a much wider community, from journalists and activists to those buying and selling illicit goods and services…This comes on the heels of the CIA launching an official Instagram account, adding to a social media presence that already consisted of Twitter and Facebook profiles.”

The Shadowy CIA Data Firms Behind the Creation of Digital Vaccine Passport IDs,” December 17, 2021, https://www.dailyveracity.com/2021/12/17/the-shadowy-cia-data-firms-behind-the-creation-of-digital-vaccine-passport-ids/

Quote: “The group’s partner list they give credit for making this possible includes Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, and CIA contractor MITRE. Their member list also includes hundreds of other private and public organizations including the CIA’s Palantir and Diagnostic Robotics, an Israeli-based firm contracted to create contact tracing software and an “artificial intelligence platform that predicts patients’ hospitalization risk.” According to the Times of Israel, in mid-2020 Diagnostic Robotics teamed up with Start-Up Nation Central, an organization that seeks to compel the United States into becoming more dependent on technology developed by Israel. Israel’s government has been closely connected to the global pandemic response and the development of tools for contact tracing and vaccine passport systems. In addition to the response to the coronavirus pandemic, the country has also been intimately involved with the planning for a global response to a potential ‘cyber pandemic.’ In partnership with ten other countries as well as the IMF and World Bank, Israel’s Ministry of Finance recently hosted a cyber pandemic exercise simulating a cyberattack on the global financial system.”

“All of these groups are involved with each other and MITRE Corporation is intimately involved with all of these groups. Throughout its history, MITRE Corp has managed federally funded research and development centers for U.S. government agencies in the healthcare, homeland security, and cybersecurity fields…According to Forbes, MITRE Corp also ‘runs some of the U.S. government’s most hush-hush science and tech labs.’ “Among the government’s wilder MITRE orders: a prototype tool that can hack into smartwatches, fitness trackers and home thermometers for the purposes of homeland security; software to collect human fingerprints from social media websites like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for the FBI; and support in building what the FBI calls the biggest database of human anatomy and criminal history in the world.”

“…the second-biggest software development company in the US based on revenue. Just like many of the other companies listed on the websites of these ‘private-public alliances,’ Oracle is a major player involved in the data gathering and software development necessary for future digital IDs.Oracle also started as a CIA Project and takes its name from a 1977 CIA operation with the same codename. Similar to In-Q-Tel and Palantir — two groups closely involved with every aforementioned private-public alliance — Oracle’s very first customer was the CIA. “Recognizing the potential demand for a commercial database product, [Ellison] founded the company that became Oracle in 1977,” Vox writes, conspicuously omitting the whole “because CIA wanted a relational database” part of the history.

“Palantir Technologies — an American software company that specializes in big data mining and analytics — is also a member of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition…birthed by funding from In-Q-Tel, Palantir’s only client up until 2008 was the CIA…. Palantir founder Alex Karp… speaks on a wide range of subjects like greed, integrity, and Marxism…a lot of the decisions he makes at Palantir are driven by his experiences as a Jew.

“In-Q-Tel was the first government-sponsored venture capital firm, chartered by the CIA, in February 1999. According to research into In-Q-Tel’s beginnings, the organization serves as a platform to expand the research and development (R&D) efforts of the CIA into the private sector. The CIA uses the firm to make strategic investments in startup companies that are of interest to the CIA and greater intelligence community. In-Q-Tel funded the creation of Palantir and runs the COVID-19 Healthcare coalition with Palantir, MITRE Corp, Microsoft, and others.

“Few people are aware that Google was one of many projects backed by DARPA and the NSA in the early 1990s. According to reports, the early work of Google’s founders was overseen by Department of Defense officials as well as officials of other US Government agencies.”

“5 Star Trust,” Monkey Werx, https://www.monkeywerxus.com/blog/five-star-trust

Quote: “…the Five Start Trust was set up by the CIA. It consisted of 5 top men: George Bush Sr, Richard Armitage, General Edward Lansdale, William Colby and General Robert L Ferrara. The objective of the Five Star Trust was to setup the largest drug and money laundering system the world had ever seen. It was called Operation Studebaker and Operation Clean Room (these were the money laundering systems).This was run out of Kentucky by a gentleman named Marion Horne. The main objective of this operation was to create money for the CIA so they wouldn’t have to ask Congress for money, which would divulge the CIA plans.The objective was to setup a drug running operation and put all the money into a conglomeration of banks setup by the Rothschilds and the 13 banking families, known as the Five Star Trust.”

Pay to Play,” Monkey Werx, https://www.monkeywerxus.com/blog/pay-to-play

Quote: Regarding the Uranium One Plan, “Our GOVERNMENT was ALSO in on the deal. The CIA, DOJ, FBI, and the State Department were all doing the blocking and tackling to ensure this never saw the light of day…” even producing “…a bank scheme by the CIA in which they trafficked drugs (Evergreen, Air America, Flying Tigers, etc. ) into the United States and around the World to fund their black programs. Under the Uranium One plan, this too, would set up a similar scenario in which they would have ports controlled by non-US third parties (China and UAE) allowing for human-trafficking, drugs, weapons, and of course nuclear material – all unchecked. As a matter of fact, because the uranium was not allowed to be exported directly to Russia, they would use countries like Canada and Australia who were legally mining the uranium out of the United States, to move it to the Ukraine and Russia.”

Quote: “What if you acknowledged that many of the foster homes these children are being placed into are worse than the one from which they are removed? What if you learned about some of the stories of children who were abused in foster care, children who suffered emotional trauma from being “kidnapped” from their home, forced to take psychotropic drugs for the resulting emotional traumas they endured, physically, emotionally and sexually abused, or even used in sex-trafficking rings?”

FBI Declassifies Files on the CIA’s Involvement in Satanic Ritual Abuse and Child Sex Trafficking,” December 26, 2021, https://vaccineimpact.com/2021/fbi-declassifies-files-on-the-cias-involvement-in-satanic-ritual-abuse-and-child-sex-trafficking/ and https://healthimpactnews.com/2021/fbi-declassifies-files-on-the-cias-involvement-in-satanic-ritual-abuse-and-child-sex-trafficking/

Quote: “Russ Winter of Winter Watch published an article…about the FBI declassifying files on a CIA group called “The Finders” and the McMartin preschool Satanic child trafficking case in Los Angeles in the 1980s. We have referenced this case and the secret CIA group The Finders in the past here at Health Impact News, as former FBI Chief Ted Gunderson was actively involved in this case…Gunderson warned about the proliferation of secret Satanic groups, and the danger posed by the New World Order, a shadow government that controls the U.S. government. Gunderson discovered that in the U.S. there is a secret widespread network of groups who kidnap children and infants, and subject them to Satanic ritual abuse and subsequent human sacrifice. One of those groups is The Finders, which Gunderson said is operated by the CIA…Gunderson traveled around the country giving lectures about his work, which included cases that led him to discover the hidden groups involved with the Satanic Occult, which included child sex abuse and child sacrifice.

…The vehicle that is used by the U.S. Government and the CIA to traffick these children and run these Satanic ritual abuse networks, is the government funded Child Social Services and Foster Care network, most commonly known as “CPS” (Child Protection Services)…

In 2009, Bill Bowen released a trailer for a documentary film he was producing exposing the corruption within Child Protection Services across the United States. The film is called Innocence Destroyed. Bill Bowen died unexpectedly the next year, in 2010, reportedly from a heart attack, before he was able to finish the film…

Another person who exposed the corrupt Child Protection Services network was Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer. Before she was murdered, she had produced evidence of this corruption…

Another State Senator who tried to expose the corruption in CPS and child sex trafficking and was murdered in the summer of 2019 was Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith. We covered her story in 2019, and it also has ties to child sex trafficking in Arizona…

Much of this very evil Satanic ritual abuse and child sex trafficking happening in the United States was exposed in 2016 by Julian Assange and Wikileaks, which was named “Pizza Gate.”…

Donald Trump was recruited instead, not because he wasn’t involved in all this (there is evidence, including being in Epstein’s black book, that Trump has been part of all this also…but because he was not part of the political establishment but part of the Wall Street Billionaire club and could be counted on to usher in the Great Reset and the COVID plandemic and further enrich the Globalists and distract the public from concentrating on the evil child trafficking network.”

“The Fastest Growing Religion in the America is Witchcraft,” October 30, 2013, http://thetruthwins.com/archives/the-fastest-growing-religion-in-america-is-witchcraft

What is the fastest growing religion in the United States?  If you said Christianity, you would be way off.  In fact, the most recent numbers show that Christianity is in a serious state of decline in America.  If you said Islam, you are much closer to a correct answer.  Islam is the fastest growing major religion in the United States.  But there is a faith that is growing even faster than Islam.  It is called Wicca, and it is currently growing at an astounding pace…Wicca “is a modern pagan, witchcraft religion”.  It has been estimated that the number of Americans that are Wiccans is doubling every 30 months, and at this point there are more than 200,000 registered witches and approximately 8 million unregistered practitioners of Wicca.  And it is important to remember that Wicca is just one form of witchcraft.  There are many other “darker” forms of witchcraft that are also experiencing tremendous growth…Wicca will soon become the third largest religion in the United States after only Christianity and Islam…”

The U.S. Witch Population Has Seen an Astronomical Rise,” October 4, 2018, https://qz.com/quartzy/1411909/the-explosive-growth-of-witches-wiccans-and-pagans-in-the-us/

Quote: “While the US government does not regularly collect detailed religious data, because of concerns that it may violate the separation of church and state, several organizations have tried to fill the data gap. From 1990 to 2008, Trinity College in Connecticut ran three large, detailed religion surveys. Those have shown that Wicca grew tremendously over this period. From an estimated 8,000 Wiccans in 1990, they found there were about 340,000 practitioners in 2008. They also estimated there were around 340,000 Pagans (pdf) in 2008. Although Trinity College hasn’t run a survey since 2008, the Pew Research Center picked up the baton in 2014. It found that 0.4% of Americans, or around 1 to 1.5 million people, identify as Wicca or Pagan—which suggests continued robust growth for the communities.”

American Society ‘Submerged’ in the Occult Says Ex-Satanist,” 2013, https://www.christianpost.com/news/american-society-submerged-in-the-occult-says-ex-satanist.html

Quote: “”Our society is submerged in the occult; Harry Potter has filled the minds of our children for a decade and vampirism meets our teens with the illusions of grandeur. Witchcraft went mainstream decades ago, and Wicca is its offspring,”said Harshbarger.

“‘Christian’ witchcraft is on the up-rise and new age spirituality fills the church pews. Time has come for the church to be equipped and be effective. This is why I wrote Dancing With the Devil.””

All across America there are amazing Conservatives rising up in elections, from Arizona to liberal strongholds like Washington. They are debating the issues well and are like rising stars in the murky midnight of our world. But all their patriotism and bold words and moral stands are like Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie at the Alamo. California has become a state at war with all American parents whose children want sex operations, saying that they will be a sanctuary state for all who come, and schools are bound and determined to usher in family friendly drag queen shows while teaching children that they can choose what sex they want to be. There are parents standing up for truth in meetings, and pastors who are speaking out against the sin of this new Sodom and Gomorrah. Violence is rampant in our streets and spreading like a contagious disease. Ethnicity is rising against ethnicity, and long buried grudges have reemerged with more vitriol than before. There are threats of nuclear war, economic collapse, and whispers of a new digital currency to replace all currencies of the world. Meanwhile illegals longing for the promised freedom and benefits of America are running into hell on earth here and along the way, for too many of the children are likely being sold into sex slavery while others may be utilized for human sacrifices. And though there are would-be terrorists mixed among them, the greatest terror is that which they have found here among those they thought would save them. And now according to the CDC the vaccine is to be required for all children if they want to continue attending school. There is a foul wind blowing through America, and in all nations of this earth. For while the American immune system is on high alert fighting off the overwhelming infection plaguing it from all around, the world is also reeling with war, famine, sex trafficking, slavery, and intensified persecution of Christians and even other minorities.

Along with cruel lock downs in China, upheaval and displacement in Ukraine, threat of conscription and nuclear war in Russia, increasing tyranny and euthanasia in Canada, the immanent economic collapse of the UK, and the increasing persecution of Conservatives and the immoral aim to destroy the God-given sex and minds and lives of children in the United States, there is a little known story unfolding on the continent of Africa. Yes, there is one thing after another these days, and the world is indeed in great upheaval in nation after nation after nation. The why of it all is that we are living in the last of the Last Days wherein the world is being handed over to the “new world order”, a modern day Nebuchadnezzar. Yes, handed over. As for now, that which is unfolding in a nation of Africa is little known by Christians, but ought to be known and ought to be added to our ever-expanding prayer list.

Have you heard of Tigray?

As for myself, I had never heard of Tigray. First of all it is a state in the northern most region of Ethiopia. A small group of militiamen founded the Tigray People’s Liberation Front which fought off a Marxist government years ago and established a new government. Along with this, they have been harboring Eritreans in refugee camps who were fleeing slavery and merciless imprisonment. But, now, since handing over power to their present leader, they are fighting for their lives. “Since early November 2020, the Ethiopian government and Tigray fighters have been exchanging fire in a conflict that has claimed thousands of lives and has left more than 400,000 people facing famine, according to a recent UN estimate.” (https://www.dw.com/en/who-are-the-tigray-fighters-and-why-is-ethiopia-at-war-with-them/a-59736874). “A region of six million inhabitants, Tigray, a secessionist state in northern Ethiopia, has been ravaged since November 2020 by a bloody civil war. While the humanitarian disaster is being denounced by various NGOs, they speak less of the annihilation of a whole section of Christian civilization…Lord David Alton, a Catholic involved in several charities, does not have words strong enough to describe the situation: “one part of the people is massacred, the rest are starved, and their heritage is plundered in order to erase an entire culture,” writes the British parliamentarian, in a tweet of February 11.” (https://florida.sspx.org/en/news-events/news/tigray-christianity-may-be-erased-71675) Almost all of them are Christians.

It seems that there are so many leaks in the dyke that all the sandbagging that can be done would not be enough to stem the tide. It seems that there are so many holes in the ship that having sealed one a thousand others open up wider. It seems that the moment one point along the wall is secured, yet another hundred breaches are made.

Like the 276 battling the sea in Acts 27, so is this world right now. Paul along with several other prisoners and sailors and soldiers set sail for Rome, but ran into stormy winds that resisted them nearly the entire way, until the storm blew them far beyond where they had wanted to go. The ship was out of their control. At one point, for 2 weeks they bounced about up and down, north and south, and at one point even with no sun and no stars. They did not even know where they were. Desperate to survive they threw most everything on the ship overboard, including things they’d hoped to make money on like wheat, but all to no avail. At last the Apostle Paul, who had unsuccessfully warned them early on not to sail, stood up and encouraged them with a word of the Lord that the ship would go down but all their lives would be spared.

The ship would go down? Talk about a bad word and a good word bundled into one.

This also happened to Judah back in the days of Daniel and Jeremiah. God told His people in captivity in Babylon to settle down, to plant crops, have children, live their lives, for He desired to bless them. He also told those left behind in Judah to submit to Nebuchadnezzar, that Nebuchadnezzar was His man, and they were to pay tribute to him that they might be blessed. God said point blank in Jeremiah 27, “5‘I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are on the ground, by My great power and by My outstretched arm, and have given it to whom it seemed proper to Me. 6And now I have given all these lands into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, My servant; and the beasts of the field I have also given him to serve him… 8And it shall be, that the nation and kingdom which will not serve Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and which will not put its neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation I will punish,’ says the Lord, ‘with the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.” These nations under God’s judgment included Judah, Edom, Moab, Tyre, Sidon, and Ammon (Egypt also, though not mentioned in this passage).

The judgment hangs heavy upon this world, and the ship of each nation is sinking fast because they have forsake God. Thus, the four judgments of God as listed in Deuteronomy 28, Leviticus 26, Jeremiah 15 and Ezekiel 14 are unfolding right now around the world: famine, war, beasts, and pestilence. This is all in preparation for the coming of the modern Nebuchadnezzer of the new world order Babylon: the anti-christ.

But before all that, “…we’re going to see in our time a significant turning to God in a season of crisis. And I’m thankful for that. Without the crisis they would not have turned to the word of God. Without the famine the people of Elijah’s day would not have gone to the top of Mount Carmel. Without the people of Egypt oppressing the Israelites they would not have cried out to God, and when Moses showed up they would not have listened; they would not have believed that God had sent him. God’s mercy will pull out ever carpet of security that’s underneath the people about to perish so that we will consider our ways. And I personally am really thankful for that. I’m an optimist. It’s not about saving the ship and losing the people. Let the ship go down if it needs to go down if the people’s hearts are going to turn.” (Pastor Conlon’s sermon “As the Ship Sinks…”)

Indeed, yes, let the ship go down. Let all the ships go down that the people might cry out, that the people might wake up, that the people might be saved! And the ship is going down. But, instead of bailing water and attempting to patch one of a thousand holes, may we be like Paul and Abraham and do what counts. For, if we like Paul and Abraham do our part as children of God, many more will be spared before the ship sinks into the frigid waters. Sincerely and seriously, more will be spared if we get the old time Holy Ghost fire rekindled in us from the top of our heads to the core of our hearts. For no matter the hardship, no matter the darkness, no matter the storm, God has bestowed upon us as the Church of Jesus Christ an incredible gift – the gift of time. Time to reach those in the highways and byways. Time to preach boldly the unadulterated word of God. Time to reach the children who’ve never heard the Gospel a second in their life. Time to speak to our neighbors. Time to warn our family. Time to lay hands on the sick and they’ll recover. Time to rebuke addictions and send demons fleeing at the name of Jesus. Time to lift up the name of Jesus in our workplace without timidity or reservation. Time to stand for the cause of Christ. Time to die to “myself” today. Time to take up “my” cross now. Time to get my mind off of this world. Time to quit saving money and stocking up on food and going on vacations and instead lay up treasures in heaven. Time to invest our time, talent and treasure into eternity, into souls, into the things of God and the hopes of heaven.

In the words of Pastor Carter Conlon former pastor of Times Square Church and former co-pastor with Dave Wilkerson, “This is the moment for the Church of Jesus Christ to rise up again!!! This is the moment for the people of God. No more living on the edge of society! No more being intermixed and having no testimony. This is the moment to be separated to the things of God! This is the time of a great awakening in our generation! And it is time for you and I; it’s time for us to go in; it’s time for us to rise up! We are the Church of the living God! We are God’s plan for redemption in the earth! We are the ambassadors of the cross of Jesus Christ! We bear in these earthen vessels the Spirit of the living God!!!! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!!! Glory, glory, glory! Glory to the name of Jesus!…I am done with the tepid testimony of Christ. I am done with the mixture in my heart, and I am done with it in yours. We are going into the city, and we are going to make a difference…we are going to open our mouths and not be silent anymore!”

This is it. This is what it is all about. Its’ no longer about running for public office, and I wonder if it ever was. This is not about overturning Roe v Wade. This is not about taking back America or Britain or Australia or China or Russia or Ethiopia or any other nation on this earth. This is not about social media wars or Youtube bans or Facebook jail or Twitter prohibitions. This is not about going to court over free speech or moral issues. Those are just more holes in the boat and the dyke which cannot be shored up. These battles keep us scattered and running and fragmented and breathless and ineffective. Though they are noble battles of the past they are not where our focus as ambassadors of Christ ought to be in the final seconds of human history. Our time for that is gone with the wind. For the ship is not going to be saved, and Judah and the nations are judged and found wanting and are going to go into captivity – and Nebuchadnezzar is advancing. Though we may naturally resist this, this is God’s design. God is sovereign in the writing of the ending of this story.

And we, oh Bride of Christ, have a part to play in this closing act. And it is time to stand. It is time to get up. It is time to arise! For God is calling out to you, “Where are the Pentecostals, full of fire and Spirit and faith? And why are you sitting coldly and idly by while the world freezes without your fire?…Give them fire and give them food, and stop having the appearance of Pentecostals while you deny the power that you should walk in…[for] what will people see in you and in the Church in the days ahead if you have no fire? Where are the Pentecostals, full of fire and Spirit and faith? Because I need you full.” “I need you to work…you must work now… I have anointed you and I will lead you and I will guard you… The setting sun is soon, and the work this side for the Bride will end. Go into the highways and the byways quickly; knock on every door. For I am coming soon.” (from two dreams of Coverstone listed below).

The time is short, Bride of Christ. The time is now. Don’t miss it!

Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready.

With great urgency,

If Sodom Had Miracles,” October 9, 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9xspxqoius

Summary: Carter Conlon relates the passage of Matthew 11:23-24 which reads, “23And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.””

If miracles had been in Sodom they could have repented and been spared. Sodom, a city wherein all the men young and old of every age went out with the intention to rape the angels who had come to Lot’s house. That very Sodom, so depraved and so filthy, could have been remained until Jesus’ day if miracles had been demonstrated in their midst. Think of that!

In that story of Abraham and Lot and Sodom, Jesus came down in a “theophany” pre-incarnate appearance to speak with Abraham in Genesis 18. And Jesus was again present in Capernaum relating the story of that previous time. This is disclosed in verse 22 wherein it states that the LORD is the one speaking with Abraham. How incredible is that?!

As for Capernaum, it had been home base for Jesus. Peter was called from there as was Matthew. The centurion’s servant was healed by just a word of Jesus, and Peter’s mother-in-law was healed. It was a place where the friends of a particular man was lowered down through the roof and was forgiven and healed. The woman with the issue of blood was healed there, and a 12 year old girl was raised from the dead there.

Conlon feels that Jesus was waiting for Abraham to say, ‘will you spare the city if I go in?’ He believes that Abraham should have gone down, for if he had, the city would have been spared. Though the story does not relate this, Conlon believes this could be the case.

Thus, if we as Christians let God’s passion be the passion of our hearts, and if we boldly go forth and shine God’s light into the heart of the darkness God will honor it. If we will boldly lay our hands on others to be healed and believe God for miracles, it will revolutionize a city.

We are sent to the oppressed, the tormented, to tell them that there is God who loves them, that this is the moment of you freedom, there is a sovereign plan for your life.

Mark 16:15-18, “15And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

This is our mission. In the name of Christ we have power over the darkness and this world. We can speak with new tongues, given abilities to speak what we would not naturally speak, to speak mysteries that people’s hearts will be strangely warmed to the things of God. We have been given power over all the power of the enemy, over scorpions and serpents. If any deadly thing is spoken, raises its voice against us, it will not take us down. We will be where the sick are, and believe that God will deliver them and heal them.

“This is the moment for the Church of Jesus Christ to rise up again!!! This is the moment for the people of God. No more living on the edge of society! No more being intermixed and having no testimony. This is the moment to be separated to the things of God! This is the time of a great awakening in our generation! And it is time for you and I, it’s time for us to go in, it’s time for us to rise up! We are the Church of the living God! We are God’s plan for redemption in the earth! We are the ambassadors of the cross of Jesus Christ! We bear in these earthen vessels the Spirit of the living God!!!! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!!! Glory, glory, glory! Glory to the name of Jesus!…

I am done with the tepid testimony of Christ. I am done with the mixture in my heart, and I am done with it in yours. We are going into the city, and we are going to make a difference…we are going to open our mouths and not be silent anymore!…

I do not know what the future of New York is going to be, but I know that the trajectory is dark. But look who’s here. Look who we’ve got in this house…the potential here is astronomical – if – if we will go…

I’m in. I’ll go.”

As the Ship Sinks, Tell Me What To Do,” August 2022, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPQZIgW3vFY

Summary: Carter Conlon speaks on the passage of Acts 27 about Paul’s shipwreck. Paul had warned them not to sail, but they continued anyway, trusting the captain over Paul. But, the storm persisted for over two weeks. Finally, Paul told them that an angel had appeared to him and had told him that the ship would go down but every person on board would be spared.

Conlon applies this story to America and the American church, saying that America is not far from hopeless for she is on the edge of immanent economic collapse, the word of God is considered hate speech, the ways of God are seen as bigoted, we are near a social meltdown with increased violence in the streets, and we are so near hope turning into despair.

That being said, he goes on (at about the 12 minutes mark) that after a long abstinence the church will awaken and preachers that people had not wanted to listen to will suddenly be sought, and there will be “a significant turning to God.” However, Conlon goes on to say, “This doesn’t mean the ship is going to be saved. But we’re going to see in our time a significant turning to God in a season of crisis. And I’m thankful for that. Without the crisis they would not have turned to the word of God. Without the famine the people of Elijah’s day would not have gone to the top of Mount Carmel. Without the people of Egypt oppressing the Israelites they would not have cried out to God, and when Moses showed up they would not have listened; they would not have believed that God had sent him. God’s mercy will pull out ever carpet of security that’s underneath the people about to perish that so we will consider our ways. And I personally am really thankful for that. I’m an optimist. It’s not about saving the ship and losing the people. Let the ship go down if it needs to go down if the people’s hearts are going to turn.”

Get Out While You Can and Take Others with You,” October 2021, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBEJHBaV5WI&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=34

Note: Pastor Dana expresses that he feels that this is a “now” dream. Though he had it a year ago and felt it was a “now” dream or then and not for a year from then or two years from then, it is more for right now 2022 into 2023 than it was for 2021. Indeed, speaking for Holy Light Ministries, this dream is for right now.

Summary: The dream opens in front of a hospital with severe storms happening all around. People were rushing into the hospital with bags of food and luggage. Ambulance pulled up, and people jumped out with groceries. A man walked in with a paper bag that said “day old bread”. Lighting was striking the ground. No rain yet. Dana Coverstone entered the doors with everyone, and everyone was frantic. Panic was tangible. No one communicated. Dana went up the staircase instead of the elevator.

Hospital room out the window of which were looming storm clouds. Thunder shook the building. On the bed was the “church”. She was praying and sobbing over the church not being ready. She was afraid of what she saw. She slid down the wall and began to shake. The thunder shook the building.

The man appeared and told her to work. But she was still overwhelmed. He said, “I need you to work”. Then He got down near her and said as He took her face into his hands, “you must work now” with emphasis on the word “now”. He then repeated that as he poured oil over her head. And she said, “Lord, how can I do this?” And He said, “I have anointed you and I will lead you and I will guard you.”

At that point, Coverstone who was an observer in the dream saw smoke rising up at his feet. It was then that the Lord said, “Get out while you can, and take who you can with you.” He repeated this to her. Then, He helped her get up, and then disappeared.

She was on the 5th floor. She began to pound on the doors. People yelled for her to leave them alone. She kept going on down to the next floor. Her hair caught on fire at one point. But she kept banging on doors. Some hesitantly came out. When they came, she said you beat on these doors too.

Few people responded. There were only 6. Finally 45-50 people exited with her. They were moving quickly, frantically, running as fast as they could, begging people to get out. Sweating.

The building got hit by lightning, and the building shook. Ceiling tiles fell along with steel beams down upon the people, but they helped each other. Even with the beams on them they cried out for others to come out and get out of the building.

Finally, they all had exited. The clouds were evil. Demonic sneers were upon the clouds looking down upon the small group. Everything was shaking, but it was not an earthquake.

You could see into the building and people were oblivious, reading, watching tv. There were a few others beating on the windows for them to come back and get them out. But, the group did not go back in, but wept and sobbed and cried over those who would not come out.

7 more came out as the building shook, and embraced those outside.

A severely loud thunder clap struck, and the hospital collapsed like the twin towers. And when the dust settled the 60 people were gone. They had vanished. And standing where they had been was the man who said,

The setting sun is soon, and the work this side for the Bride will end. Go into the highways and the byways quickly; knock on every door. For I am coming soon.”

The Desert Road Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eVcvPVOAoY&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=36

Summary: Coverstone sees a desert landscape at night. The road he was on was wet and slippery and difficult to walk upon causing him to have to be “slow and purposeful” because he did not want to fall, but all around him was arid desert with mesas and plateaus. He saw 4 billboards each with a different digital scene with videos playing. There were two on each side of the road. Each had a slanted roof. There was drizzling rain that never hit the ground, but just bounced off of the roof. Wolves howled in the background.

The first billboard on the video to his left, he saw grocery store with armed guards out front with people waiting in line to get in. They were then checked out when they exited. 5 went in, then after 5 went out 5 more would go in. The guards documented what they were coming out with in their bags and recorded it in a bright orange notebook. People were in coats and hats – so it was cold.

The second billboard’s video (on his right) he saw portrayed people in a green van with blue letters outlined in white that read Coroner. They pulled up to a house marked with a red X and the number 2 on the door. 2 to 3 inches of snow was on the ground and ice on the windows. The van had a sticker on the front window that read “Minnesota Wisconsin Response Team”.

4 people got out of the van in heavy coats and gloves taped to their coats and wooly hats. They brought out 2 people who were blue and in fetal positions. They appeared to be frozen solid.

The third billboard on his left showed a reporter saying that the east and west coast were under the management of FEMA because of inclement weather patterns that had shut down interstate roads. People were advised to stay home. Gas stations were shut down by executive order. And marshal law was declared in cities with over 45,000 people. There was no rioting or looting. There was a rain/sleet mix coming down. Extreme weather patterns were everywhere.

The fourth billboard showed a small church with a small group of people huddled together, praying. The man walked in and asked loudly, “Where is the fire?” The ten people turned around and covered their faces in shame, and turned away from Him. He then said, “Look at me and stand.” And they did so. And with His right hand in the air He said, “Where are the Pentecostals, full of fire and Spirit and faith? And why are you sitting coldly and idly by while the world freezes without your fire?” And then he said, “Give them fire and give them food, and stop having the appearance of Pentecostals while you deny the power that you should walk in.”

He then opened His right hand and fire appeared and then went to their heads. Some of the fire spread from their heads to their hearts because of an oil sheen, and it roared out of their hearts loudly, a great noise, a rushing wind. 5 with hearts ablaze headed to the door and out onto the streets. The other 5 did not have the oil, and so the fire did not spread to their hearts, and they did not go out into the streets.

Then Coverstone was back on the road where the wolves were closer and howling still. Directly in front of him was a billboard engulfed in flame. The entire scene was on fire and it lit up the sides of the road. And he saw the red eyes of the wolves just beyond the road. The wolves were held back by the flames, but they growled. He was not afraid.

The man walked through the fiery billboard toward Coverstone and said. “What will people see in you and in the Church in the days ahead if you have no fire? Where are the Pentecostals, full of fire and Spirit and faith? Because I need you full.”

U.S. Diplomacy Failing at Critical Moment in Ethiopian War,” September 27, 2022, https://responsiblestatecraft.org/2022/09/27/us-diplomacy-failing-at-critical-moment-in-ethiopia-war%EF%BF%BC/

Quote: “The war waged by the Ethiopian Federal Government and Eritrea against Tigray is set for a decision by force of arms. Despite the media’s preoccupation with the conflict in Ukraine, it’s the bloodiest war in the world today, with thousands of soldiers and civilians dying each day in combat and from starvation and disease. How it ends will have reverberations throughout Africa and the Red Sea arena for decades…

In a September 20 press briefing, Mike Hammer, the U.S. Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa, spoke of “strategic partnership” with Ethiopia, without making it clear whether that was past, present, or future. How he depicted the conflict and the issues in dispute would have been comforting to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and discouraging to the Tigrayan authorities…

As the recent Report of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia makes clear, the Ethiopian Government is committing crimes against humanity targeting the people of Tigray, including systematic use of starvation as a weapon of war. The experts’ report applies the same standards to both sides, finding that all parties violated the laws of war, but only the federal government forces did so “as part of a widespread attack directed against the civilian population” — in other words, a crime against humanity (Paragraph 98). They added “persecution on ethnic grounds” and starvation crimes to the list of abuses attributable to the government…

Quote: “A region of six million inhabitants, Tigray, a secessionist state in northern Ethiopia, has been ravaged since November 2020 by a bloody civil war. While the humanitarian disaster is being denounced by various NGOs, they speak less of the annihilation of a whole section of Christian civilization…Lord David Alton, a Catholic involved in several charities, does not have words strong enough to describe the situation: “one part of the people is massacred, the rest are starved, and their heritage is plundered in order to erase an entire culture,” writes the British parliamentarian, in a tweet of February 11.”

Tigray is still in Crisis,” December 3, 2021, https://www.christianitytoday.com/better-samaritan/2021/december/tigray-is-still-in-crisis-here-are-6-ways-to-respond.html

Quote: “After months of phone and internet blackout, bank closures, and tight restriction of the flow of humanitarian aid, the horrific suffering in Tigray has increased even further due to air strikes on Tigray’s capital city Mekelle as well as drone and ground military offensives on other parts of Tigray. Under siege, Tigray’s humanitarian need continues to grow astronomically. A fuel shortage in Tigray has resulted in inadequate transportation and aid trucks are stuck in Tigray without fuel. Millions now face starvation, including hundreds of thousands of children. Tens of thousands of Tigrayan and Eritrean refugees live in camps in Ethiopia and Sudan. Almost all Tigrayans carry the burden of lost, abused, and/or unjustly imprisoned loved ones…

…almost all Tigrayans are orthodox Christians…

Maezer Semay, an Eritrean 24/7 satellite TV ministry based in Dallas, Texas, for example, last week launched a half hour shortwave ministry, broadcasting messages of hope in Christ to the millions living in rural areas of Tigray and Eritrea with no other connection to the outside world. Devout orthodox believers have been invited to participate in the programming. Pray that the Spirit will empower all believers in Tigray and Eritrea to overcome evil with God’s love in the midst of the most severe daily trials.

“Ethiopia is at War with Itself. ” November 5, 2021, https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/03/africa/ethiopia-tigray-explainer-2-intl/index.html

Quote: “When Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2019, he was lauded as a regional peacemaker. Now, he is presiding over a protracted civil war that by many accounts bears the hallmarks of genocide…In November 2020, Abiy ordered a military offensive in the northern Tigray region and promised that the conflict would be resolved quickly. One year on, the fighting has left thousands dead, displaced more than 2 million people from their homes, fueled famine and given rise to a wave of atrocities. Ethiopia was struggling with significant economic, ethnic and political challenges long before a feud between Abiy and the region’s former ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), bubbled over into unrest…

In 2018, Abiy was appointed by the ruling class to quell tensions and bring change, without upending the old political order. But almost as soon as he became prime minister, Abiy announced the rearrangement of the ruling coalition that the TPLF had founded…

Tensions boiled over in September 2020, when the Tigrayans defied Abiy by going ahead with regional parliamentary elections that he had delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Abiy called the vote illegal and lawmakers cut funding to the TPLF leadership, setting off a tit-for-tat series of escalations between the regional and the federal government…

For months at the start of the conflict, Abiy denied that civilians were being harmed or that soldiers from Eritrea had joined the fight. But reports from international observers, human rights groups and CNN proved both of those claims wrong. Thousands of people have died in the fighting, by many estimates, with reports of razed refugee camps, looting, sexual violence, massacres and extrajudicial killings. Many more have fled to Sudan, in what the United Nations has called the worst exodus of refugees from Ethiopia seen in two decades. They describe a disastrous conflict that’s given rise to ethnic violence. Ethiopia’s government has severely restricted access to journalists, and a state-enforced communications blackout concealed events in the region, making it challenging to gauge the extent of the crisis or verify survivors’ accounts. But evidence of atrocities began to leak out earlier this year…

Separate investigations by CNN and Amnesty International in February uncovered evidence of massacres carried out by Eritrean forces in the Tigrayan towns of Dengelat and Axum late last year. Another CNN investigation published in June revealed new details of a massacre committed by Ethiopian soldiers in the Tigrayan town of Mahibere Dego in January. The report identified one the perpetrators of the massacre, geolocated human remains to the site of the attack. In an exclusive report from Tigray in April, CNN captured Eritrean troops – some disguising themselves in old Ethiopian military uniforms – operating with total impunity in central Tigray, manning checkpoints and blocking vital humanitarian aid to starving populations more than a month after Abiy pledged to the international community that they would leave. All actors in the conflict have been accused of carrying out atrocities, but Eritrean forces have been linked to some of the most gruesome. In addition to perpetrating mass killings and rape, Eritrean soldiers have also been found blocking and looting food relief in multiple parts of Tigray…

The conflict, which erupted during the autumn harvest season following the worst invasion of desert locusts in Ethiopia in decades, plunged Tigray even further into severe food insecurity. In September, the UN said that a “de facto humanitarian aid blockade” was limiting its ability to access more than 5 million people in Tigray – or 90% of the population – in need of humanitarian aid, including 400,000 people facing famine conditions.”

Quote: “In the mid-1970s, a small group of militiamen founded the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF). With a left-wing nationalist ideology, they vowed to fight for the rights of Tigrayans, a relatively small ethnic group that account for just 5% of the population and had long been marginalized by the central government.Throughout the 1980s the TPLF emerged as a formidable challenger to Ethiopia’s then Marxist military dictatorship. The group eventually led an alliance of militia organizations, the Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF), that overthrew the Soviet Union-backed regime in 1991.The alliance then began to run Ethiopia under a federal system, with TPLF holding sway over the other groups and dominating politics for nearly three decades…

The EPRDF government led the country through periodic drought and famine, and the 1998-2000 border war with northern neighbor Eritrea. Human rights deteriorated during this time, with opposition groups complaining of persecution and corruption, which fed into growing public discontent…In early 2018…The EPRDF selected Abiy Ahmed…and he was soon elected prime minister. Abiy, a non-Tigrayan politician with little ties to the TPLF, enjoyed widespread popularity. He unseated many Tigrayan officials, charged some with corruption and introduced a set of political reforms which sidelined the TPLF. In late 2019, Abiy disbanded the EPRDF coalition government and moved to create the new Prosperity Party (PP). Refusing to join the group, the TPLF moved back to its stronghold…

After the 2020 general election was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the TPLF and some other opposition leaders accused Abiy of delaying the vote to stay in power. Despite the delay, officials in the Tigray region went ahead with regional elections in September 2020. A month later, the federal government began withholding funds from the regional administration.In early November 2020, TPLF forces were accused of having attacked and looted federal military bases in the region. Abiy kicked off a military campaign in the Tigray region, known as Operation Law enforcement, and promised to swiftly defeat the TPLF fighters.”

The Kingdom of Aksum,” https://education.nationalgeographic.org/resource/kingdom-aksum

Quote: “A major empire of the ancient world, the kingdom of Aksum arose in Ethiopia during the first century C.E. This wealthy African civilization thrived for centuries, controlling a large territorial state and access to vast trade routes linking the Roman Empire to the Middle East and India. Aksum, the capital city, was a metropolis with a peak population as high as 20,000. Aksum was also noteworthy for its elaborate monuments and written script, as well as for introducing the Christian religion to the rest of sub-Saharan Africa. Aksum was situated in the highlands of northern Ethiopia, in a region called Tigray, near present-day Eritrea…

Aksum had become Christianized in the fourth century C.E. and became the first sub-Saharan African state to embrace the new Semitic religion. A figure named Frumentius is given credit for spreading the gospel to Ethiopia.”

Quote: “Eritreans leaving their country for safety is increasing at an alarming rate. The condition of those who already left home to lead a normal life than what they had In Eritrea is equally appalling. It is estimated that there are about 2,000 of them hold as hostages by the Bedouin in Sinai.  Moreover, the refugee camps in Ethiopia are crowding and some over capacity to accommodate more refugees than what is allowable by the UNHCR standard. Inside the supposedly shelter camps, human smugglers continued with their sinister schemes to entice refugees leave the camps for relatively better living condition existing in the Sudan, Israel and by extension Europe and America. It is no more secret, that the Sudan has become a hunting ground to snatch unsuspecting young people for sale to the highest bidder.  The authorities are helpless and/or unwilling to put an end to the illegal activities of the human smugglers, the majority of whom are Eritreans. The conditions in mainland Egypt if not comparable to the Sinai is still dangerous where refugees are shot point blank and thrown to dungeons for months without due process of law.  Israel, considered the land and honey by some and a bridge to Europe and the USA by many is as cruel as the Siberian winter. The refugees have no homes to sleep, no job to remind them of their man-womanhood, and no respect whatsoever for their humanity. They live under a constant threat of imprisonment and worst deportation to hell-hole Eritrea where they left never to return. There are many blames to go around but for now ICER [International Commission on Eritrean Refugees] wants to limit its accusation to the Eritreans actively engaged in human trafficking…”

Quote: “In Eritrea, one of the most isolated and repressive countries in the world, young people have no future…National service [slavery] usually lasts between five and 10 years, but can last for up to 20. Conscripts often work 72-hour weeks in extremely harsh conditions with inadequate food and low pay. No one is legally entitled to take leave, which depends on the whim of commanding officers. Some conscripts have reported going for years without being allowed to visit home. If a conscript fails to return after taking leave, their parent may be jailed until they do.

Eritrean teenagers spend the last year of high school in a military camp before going straight into military service. If they get good enough grades, they might attend college and be given a civilian role. But the only way out is to leave the country…Every month, thousands of young people…sneak out of the country, ending up in Libya, Sudan, Europe, or dying along the way. Visitors to refugee camps on the Ethiopian side say more Eritreans have been crossing…”

Quote: “Without express government permission, no organization or individual “shall preach on the Internet, carry out religious education and training, publish sermon content, forward or link to related content, organize and conduct religious activities on the Internet, or live broadcast or post recorded videos of religious rituals,” the CCP declared at the time.The new measures went into force on March 1 and the effects are already being felt by Christians throughout China, reported Open Doors, which monitors Christian persecution around the globe…Everything that is posted “has to fit within the social harmony, the progress of society. These things are pretty typical within the communist regime. It especially restricts the house churches,” stated Kurt Rovenstine of the Bibles for China group…During the long lockdowns imposed during the coronavirus pandemic, Chinese Christians got used to conducting meetings and worship services online, but these practices will now be severely curtailed.

Over the last two years, “online church meetings have become the new normal,” Open Doors noted, citing an anonymous Chinese Christian. “This new law now brings the church’s extensive use of the internet for evangelism and spiritual nourishment to a halt. Consequently, Christians will be cut off from access to online spiritual resources.”…Open Doors noted that Christian persecution has been intensifying by the year in China under the rule of CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping. In just four years, China has leapt from number 43 on the group World Watch List to number 17, a ranking that reflects tightening restrictions on Christian practice in the country.”

“At No. 10 on Open Doors’ 2022 World Watch List, the world’s largest democracy has become one of the most dangerous places in the world for Christians in a few short years. An extremist strain of Hindu nationalism is emerging, fueling a change in attitudes across India… 64% of Hindus surveyed say it’s important to be Hindu to be “truly Indian.” The result is that Indians have become more accepting of systematic oppression of Christians and other religious minorities…While Article 25 of India’s Constitution promises freedom of religion and conscience, the situation for Christians and religious minorities in the country is deteriorating considerably.”

California Becomes the First Sanctuary State for Transgender Youth Seeking Medical Care,” October 18, 2022, https://www.kqed.org/news/11929233/california-becomes-first-sanctuary-state-for-transgender-youth-seeking-medical-care

Quote: “California is the first state in the nation to create a sanctuary for transgender youth seeking gender-affirming medical care. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a new law in September that ensures transgender kids from elsewhere can safely access hormones or puberty blockers here. The legislation also shields families from child abuse investigations or from being criminally prosecuted for seeking gender-affirming care…“We are going to provide them with refuge and we’re not going to send them back and we’re not going to honor subpoenas,” said Sen. Wiener. “And our law enforcement is not going to enforce the laws of Texas and Alabama criminalizing these families.””

Quote: “New York is showering taxpayer funds on a group that sends drag queens into city schools — often without parental knowledge or consent — even as parents in other states protest increasingly aggressive efforts to expose kids to gender-bending performers.Last month alone, Drag Story Hour NYC — a nonprofit whose outrageously cross-dressed performers interact with kids as young as 3 — earned $46,000 from city contracts for appearances at public schools, street festivals, and libraries, city records show. Since January, the group has organized 49 drag programs in 34 public elementary, middle, and high schools, it boasted on its website, with appearances in all five boroughs.”

Quote: According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime,“All smuggling of children, and a significant proportion of child trafficking, occurs in the context of child migration. Children, including those who are alone and those accompanied by family members, comprise an increasing percentage of irregular migrants globally. While cross-border movements of children are difficult to measure, data from numerous organizations and governments illustrates the scale of the issue…As observed by the 2018 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons (p. 13), “[t]he trafficking of children – particularly girls – remains a key concern”. Like smuggling of children, the true scale of trafficking in children is not known. Nonetheless, the proportion of victims of trafficking who are children is substantial: 30 per cent of detected victims are children…Children on the move are especially vulnerable to being placed in situations of trafficking. This is particularly the case when children are travelling without a parent or legal guardian, even if they are in the company of other migrants. They may be extorted for smuggling fees, forced to work to pay off debts in transit countries, and may be sexually and physically harassed, abused or exploited. Trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation is particularly common…”

Quote: “Canada’s extremely liberal euthanasia laws, which, next year, are set to be extended to include people suffering from mental health conditions and potentially minors, have been slammed for being reminiscent of the way the Nazis dealt with people with disabilities by a leading academic in the field.In an article published by the Associated Press last week, Tim Stainton director of the Canadian Institute for Inclusion and Citizenship at the University of British Columbia said the country’s uniquely permissive euthanasia laws were, “probably the biggest existential threat to disabled people since the Nazis’ program in Germany in the 1930s.”’”

Quote: “Mark Houck, the founder and co-president of The King’s Men, a men’s ministry, faces federal assault charges stemming from an altercation with a Planned Parenthood escort outside a Philadelphia abortion clinic nearly a year ago.Houck, who regularly prays the rosary outside the clinic, maintains he was defending his 12-year-old son from the escort’s verbal harassment, a family spokesman, Brian Middleton, told CNA on Sunday. The man fell when Houck pushed him away, Middleton said…When both the city police and the district attorney declined to file charges against Houck, the escort filed a private criminal complaint in Philadelphia municipal court, Middleton said. The case was dismissed in July when the man repeatedly didn’t show up in court, Middleton said…Sept. 23, federal law enforcement officials arrived outside the Houcks’ home in Kintnersville in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, around 7 a.m.“A SWAT team of about 25 came to my house with about 15 vehicles and started pounding on our door,” Houck’s wife, Ryan-Marie Houck, told CNA on Friday, just hours after her husband’s arrest.“They said they were going to break in if he didn’t open it. And then they had about five guns pointed at my husband, myself, and basically at my kids,” she added. “They were pointing their weapons,” Middleton said. “They came in as if they were expecting some kind of confrontation.””

Hang On To Your Lights — They Are The Only Lights Left In The World

“Don’t tune me out. Hang on awhile. This is a big story, and you’re part of it. It’s too late to do anything here now except stand in the dark and let them come. It’s as if the lights were all out everywhere, except in America. Keep those lights burning…Hello America! Hang onto your lights; they’re the only lights left in the world.” (Foreign Correspondent, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocAzfplTdTw). “For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world” (John Winthrop, https://www.americanyawp.com/reader/colliding-cultures/john-winthrop-dreams-of-a-city-on-a-hill-1630/). And indeed, “the city on a hill has grown dark. Its light has dimmed and is in danger of going out. It has now been overtaken by a plague that has left it shaken, a lock down that has battered its economy and paralyzed its daily life, and the sword of disorder and violence that has set it on edge and divided in two. It’s an America that has declared war against its own foundation, a nation its founders would not recognize.” (Jonathan Cahn, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPz-Z3nbdLo). “And I saw America as lights flickering. And it was like I saw the whole country outline of the United States of America, including Alaska and Hawaii, and it was like…right before a light goes out it flickers and starts flashing – that was what it looked like. It was like America was a light bulb about to go out.” (Dana Coverstone, “Dana Coverstone #8 WARNING America Blackout 28 Aug 4 Sept,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrAtdE1oNoo&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=9)

City on a Hill

Once awash in glorious light, this nation as a white city upon a high hill shimmered and radiated the glory of God to the nations of the world. From our inception, America was a land dedicated to God, in covenant with God, servants of the Most High. Christianity flourished here. Missionaries were sent from here into the deepest, darkest regions of the world. High on that hill, this nation lifted higher still the banner of freedom and hope in the midnight of this world, and people from all corners of this earth flocked en mass to the dazzling display of the lighthouse of America, land of the free and home of the brave.

But somewhere in the midst of it all, the light grew dimmer and the pristine white aged to ivory as the identity of Christians mingled with red, white and blue and material success rose in prominence. The American dream was set upon a pedestal, schools banned the Bible and prayer, while colleges taught children to question the authority of the Bible and the existence of God. Sexual revolutions came, drugs stole lives and souls, families disintegrated, Bible translations were contaminated with man’s opinions, ministers more lost than their sheep lead churches slowly down slippery paths of ecumenism, New Age philosophies, liberal theology until approximately 70% of “Born Again” Christians believe that Jesus is NOT the only way to heaven, and only an estimated 6% of 176 million Americans who profess to be Christian hold a “biblical worldview.” This is the modern America. This is America’s church – the church of the west. Not only has its yellowed paint chipped and fallen in large chunks from our once white city upon a hill, the light has all but gone out.

Grave darkness has descended upon America, deep, deep, tangible darkness. But it is not a darkness that can be rebuked or resisted, nor is it a darkness that can be overcome in our own strength, for it is a darkness sent by God Himself because America has rejected God and raised herself up in pompous pride against Him.

When A Land Sins Against Me…

Ezekiel 14 poignantly says, 12The word of the Lord came again to me, saying: 13“Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famine on it, and cut off man and beast from it. 14Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God.

15“If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts, 16even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate.

17“Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land,’ and I cut off man and beast from it, 18even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered.

19“Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast, 20even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”

21For thus says the Lord God: “How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem—the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence—to cut off man and beast from it?”

To be clear, these are the curses God warned Israel about in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28. These are the curses that would come upon Judah, a nation in covenant with God, as well as any nation and any land that rejects God according to Ezekiel. But what is important to be emphasized here is this: these curses fell upon Jerusalem wherein the Temple of the Lord was.

God’s Holy Temple, the Lesson of Shiloh, and America

The inhabitant of Judah had been very confident that God would not execute judgment upon them because His Temple was there, and God would not destroy His Temple. God would keep His covenant. God would not wipe them out. They were His people. The land was His land. The Temple was His Temple.

But God said in Jeremiah 7, “4Do not trust in these lying words, saying, ‘The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord are these.’5“For if you thoroughly amend your ways and your doings, if you thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbor, 6if you do not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place, or walk after other gods to your hurt, 7then I will cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers forever and ever. 8“Behold, you trust in lying words that cannot profit. 9Will you steal, murder, commit adultery, swear falsely, burn incense to Baal, and walk after other gods whom you do not know, 10and then come and stand before Me in this house which is called by My name, and say, ‘We are delivered to do all these abominations’? 11Has this house, which is called by My name, become a den of thieves in your eyes? Behold, I, even I, have seen it,” says the Lord.12“But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel. 13And now, because you have done all these works,” says the Lord, “and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer, 14therefore I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.”

Shiloh. Shiloh was where Eli was priest, and Hannah brought little Samuel to reside in the presence of the Lord. It was there that Eli’s sons and priests Hophni and Phineas sinned habitually along with the people without any fear of the Lord. Yet, when the Philistines came up against them they all marched out proudly with the Ark of the Covenant from the Holy of Holies assuming and believing it made them invincible. After all, God would have to defend His Ark! But, instead the Philistines crushed them and confiscated the Ark of the Covenant, both sons of Eli died in battle, and then Eli himself died at the news that the Ark had been captured.

This is what God did to Shiloh and His Ark.

And God did the same to Jerusalem and His Temple.

If He did that to the very Temple where He dwelt and the Ark of the Covenant upon which He sat, why would He not do it to America that is called by His name?

Judgment of Unadulterated Evil

Do not think God is unjust in His dealing with America. Is not our land dripping, saturated, inundated, flooded and overflowing with the blood of the innocent? Overturning Roe v. Wade was merely a hollow gesture compared to all the slaughter, murders, and human sacrifices and injustice and human trafficking and the infestation of Hollywood filth embedded deep into the soul of this nation and spread to the rest of the world like a disease of putrid sores. Yes, sacrifices even now are being offered, and Washington D.C. is oozing with blood and filth and Occult depravity. The oppression does not cease: of the poor, the foreign, those without parents, those without husbands, etc. They are easy prey, always controlled by political agendas so that they vote for people who promise help but who never help them. And on top of this, the Church is rotten from the inside out — having a form of godliness but denying its power, believers in doctrines of devils, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, pursuers of another Jesus…

What has been happening in America IS evil. What God is doing to America IS NOT evil. Think about that…

The love of money in the name of good for one’s family or career is evil. The the love of and pursuit of pleasure and the service to the idol of constant busyness is evil. The cry for peace and security outside of God and at any price is evil. The belief that Jesus is not the only way to heaven is evil. Lack of the fear of the Lord is evil. The murder of the innocent is evil. Teaching others to do the same is evil. The use of aborted, sacrificed babies in vaccines and in the name of the false god of science is evil. And it’s stench has risen up into the nostrils of a holy God.

And thus, God is dealing out judgment to America in the form of economic collapse, natural disasters, looming war, leaders ruling over them who hate them, a “pandemic”, an “invasion” at the Mexican border, rising food costs with famine breathing down their necks, people in the prime of life dropping dead of the vaccine, and the suffocation of tyranny just around the corner. In the words of the Lord in one of Coverstone’s dreams, “This is for the slaughter of and for the hands that shed innocent blood.” For indeed, “I keep my word. And I will be faithful to keep my word as it regards the blessing and the curse.” (from the Millstone Dream).

In truth, what God said in Scripture regarding “blessing and cursing” is coming to pass, and He has confirmed this through Jonathan Cahn, “Jeremy” on Aminutetomidnite with Tony Koretz, and the dreams of Dana Coverstone. If you cannot see this, please take a look at the video links and article links below and take them to the Lord in prayer. This is not to be taken lightly nor is to be merely shrugged off as nothing nor to flippantly be responded to with a “this too shall pass”.

God is judging America and the nations. The signs are everywhere.

Message to the Bride of Christ

Though the lights of America are indeed going out, your lights oh true Church are not to go out! Though God’s judgment has come to America and will be poured out slowly over time, giving her always a chance to repent, you oh Church and spotless Bride, must arise and shine! It is not the time to be silent nor the time to be too busy nor the time to be troubled by war or famine or fear or cold – but to be alive in the fear of the Lord and to be empowered by the joy of the Lord that is our strength. This is not the moment to cower, but to rise!

The shaking that is coming now upon America will be intense, but do not be confused by it – for judgment must come. Indeed, let God arise and His enemies be scattered!

America will not rise again nor be made great again nor will freedom bells continue ringing, for her judgment has come. And she has not repented. Therefore, God is visiting her with judgment and soon will plunge the entire world into great tribulation riddled with wars and disasters and famine and pestilence and death, for the world has rejected God.

But, we are only now nearing this ultimate culmination, and are called on to shine like stars in the universe. We may be few in number, but it only takes one lamp to pierce the darkness. So, trim your lamps, fill your oil, and prepare to shine for all your worth into the ever growing darkness that will only see an end in the blessed hope of Christ! And pray with fervor and anointing. Pray with the sword of the spirit that is the word of God. Pray with great faith that is your shield. Pray with the authority that you’ve been given and in unity and agreement, with Christ in our midst.

Today is still the day of salvation, in spite of the impending doom of the gathering storm. Today we are still to redeem the time for the days are evil. Today we are to shine for we still serve a risen Savior, a Savior who came first as the Lamb, but who is coming back as the Lion, as King of kings and Lord of lords, with fire in His eyes and great glory!

Forget not who you serve! Forget not why we are here, oh Ambassadors of Christ! Forget not your calling! Forget not that we are to work while it is still day, for the night is coming when no one can work! Press on dearly beloved in Christ! Press on toward the goal, the heavenly, eternal goal in Christ! Shake off the dirt and earth of this world! Look away from national flags and earthly allegiances, for we’ve a heavenly Kingdom, a heavenly King, and His is the glory and power and honor forever!! Amen!!!

Indeed, heaven and earth will pass away, but His word will never pass away.

Jesus is coming soon. Let’s be ready!

Shining for Jesus,

Holy Light Ministries

Nearly 70% of born-again Christians say other religions can lead to heaven – study,” October 21, 2021, https://www.christianpost.com/news/nearly-70-percent-of-born-again-christians-dont-see-jesus-as-only-way.html

Quote: “Nearly 70% of born-again Christians disagree with the biblical position that Jesus is the only way to God, according to a new survey from Probe Ministries, a nonprofit that seeks to help the Church in renewing the minds of believers with a Christian worldview…The survey also found that among the top reasons given by born-again Christians for not telling others about their faith is the acceptance of pluralism. When asked why they don’t share their beliefs with others, born-again respondents chose “They can get to Heaven through their different religious belief,” “We shouldn’t impose our ideas on others,” and “The Bible tells us not to judge others” as their top three responses, respectively…confusion among Christians and what they believe was also recently reflected in the American Worldview Inventory published last month by the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University. Of an estimated 176 million American adults who identify as Christian, just 6% or 15 million of them were actually found to hold a biblical worldview. The study showed, in general, that while a majority of America’s self-identified Christians, including many who identify as evangelical, believe that God is all-powerful, all-knowing and is the Creator of the universe, more than half reject a number of biblical teachings and principles, including the existence of the Holy Spirit.

Strong majorities were also found to errantly believe that all religious faiths are of equal value, people are basically good and that people can use acts of goodness to earn their way into Heaven. The study further showed that majorities don’t believe in moral absolutes, consider feelings, experience or the input of friends and family as their most trusted sources of moral guidance, and say that having faith matters more than which faith you pursue.”

John Winthrop Dreams of a City on a Hill, 1630,” https://www.americanyawp.com/reader/colliding-cultures/john-winthrop-dreams-of-a-city-on-a-hill-1630/

Please take a look at Coverstone’s dreams below. They reveal much of what has been happening in America and what will be taking place soon. I have summarized some of them for your convenience (the summary will be found beneath the video).

WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON:

the Rockwell Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPmCnn6SuZE&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=40

Summary: Things are going on just outside the window during the very homey Thanksgiving scene like the scene of the Rockwell painting with the family at Thanksgiving time. As those at the table try to talk about what is happening just outside the window behind the grandparents who are serving the Turkey, most at the table rebuke and silence them. And then things turn really bad, people die, and only the few who were alert survive.

This truly has been happening, even in families. Truth and those who stand for it are under attack, but in the end it is those who have not faced the truth who will suffer most.

The Bunker Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JM6fWoahls&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=25

Summary: This reveals the facade of the presidency, the military’s “pre-planned” events, and the large, bloody stain under the president’s desk.

The Rats in the Sewer dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLkvYYeoVa0

Summary: Really this picks up where “The Bunker” dream leaves off. The blood under the president’s desk that goes deep into the tunnels beneath the Oval Office and also suddenly poured from the ceiling of the office as well, the spreading of the blood by the rats all over Washington D.C., the sifting and shaking of D.C., and the Lord holding the scales with the currencies of the world held high above His head until He threw the currencies to the ground, turning them to powder that blew away. And the Lord said while still holding the scale, “I determine the value of what is valued, but the soul of the nation worships paper and paper is all it will be. The time of bracing is past and the season of endurance is upon the Body of Christ. Endure now. Endure tomorrow. And endure until the end.”

And indeed, He is determining that right now. All the money of the world that has been held dear is about to blow away in the wind, and God is behind it.

“They Don’t Hate Me, They Hate You dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFIypGa5k7g&t=4s

Summary: This is unfolding and has been unfolding regarding the January 6th trials and arrests and imprisonments (including of Dr. Simone Gold), the raid on one of Donald Trump’s homes, etc.

The Lincoln Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GB2dEHrHlo&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=17

Summary: This too is unfolding with the sacrifice and demolition of the U.S. legal system in the name of U.S. patriotism, and in so doing, patriotism is being destroyed too. Courts are practicing lawlessness, and in the name of freedom they are killing freedom itself.

Summary: The “Republic” of America is over, and the nations of this world are become the nations of our God and of His Christ. All are being tested to see what they are made of, and all are in God’s hands. Though evil may think they are holding sway over this world, God is indeed sovereign, He is in control, and His will is being done.

Summary: This is a Statue of Liberty dream which shows her lengthy yet ultimate demise, her defiance, lack of repentance, and complete and utter destruction.

WHAT IS COMING SOON, Possibly EVEN THIS YEAR:

“The Plumb Line Dream – January 9-10 2021,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJW5YwjWLFk&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=22

The congressional scene aligns with The Hail to the Chief dream.

“Dana Coverstone #6 Flag, Fireworks, Faithful 10 August,” Month of October https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20NxUKwGHAk&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=6

Summary: Concerning the 2nd and 3rd weeks in October as well as October 31st which was emphasized. He sees federal officials, governors, and other leadership with wicks coming out of their heads which eventually are lit and explode – everyone’s heads blew up at the same time, and protests turned violent. There were also older people being attacked – patriotic Americans with principles. There were even those attempting to break into nursing homes to attack the elderly. And there was a hundred dollar bill raised as a flag on a pole where it burned as it was slowly lowered to the tune of Taps until there was only a third of the flag left, and people with hands over their hearts wept. But others celebrated that the value dollar died.

Meanwhile, small groups of Christians met together and prayed (small churches and small groups of people) – the faithful who had not compromised and who are discerning the times. “They were wrestling in prayer with the spirit of the age.” And they were protected by “bubbles” as angels guarded them on every side. And these were encouraged to stand strong and to press on and to believe in spite of relentless attacks. Behind each of them was a small gate (Coverstone was reminded of Matthew 7:13-14, the narrow gate that leads to the narrow way).

This was followed by “puffed up” prosperity prophets and pastors who preached against any type of persecution and only predicted good things. Their words were slurred, and they sounded drunk. Little by little they lost their clothing until they were completely naked. Then a rug under them was pulled out and they were flipped into the air, and money flew everywhere that they’d gotten from their prophesies. As they landed the bit through their tongues, and they reached out to grab their tongues but could not reach them. They were exposed. [part of this came to pass when Trump did not get back in to serve a second term as president, for all those who had predicted his victory were dumbfounded and silenced. However, they have since continued their bombastic, proud prophesying and more are listening or are continuing to listen in spite of it. Furthermore, this part about $ and them being shamed has not yet come to pass].

The scene returned to those who were praying. It was more intense, but they persevered still.

The final scene was of election clowns who poured out slippery grease to keep voters away. They did so professionally with skits, but were there to deter voters and to distract.

– Passover 2021 billboard – [this is already passed]

And the figure in white appeared and said, “Do not stop bracing for the storm will not pass until I stop the storm. So brace, brace, brace yourselves, and don’t look back.”

Dana Coverstone #7 Elections, Trump Victory, and Warning 25 August,” month of November, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOAAEds_lgE&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=8

Summary: I believe that this dream will find its full fulfillment this November. It started to unfold in November of 2020, so some of its content has been fulfilled already. However, there are a number of parts that have yet to be fulfilled, and will likely come to pass this November including the complete demolition of democracy and all that the White House and this nation has ever stood for in all of its years. The part regarding the fire on the heads of the Body of Christ and the fires burning on the altars of churches for sure will be happening this November. And by fire, I mean the fire of the Holy Spirit. This fulfillment will surely take place this November.

**fire on the heads of Christians agrees with the Desert Road Dream. After seeing this again, the timing points to this November

Dana Coverstone #8 WARNING America Blackout 28 Aug 4 Sept,” month of December/January, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrAtdE1oNoo&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=9

Summary: December – the finger pointed under the word December and forcefully underlined it. Then the calendar flipped to January and the finger underlined the word January just as slowly and deliberately as it had December.

This was followed by clips of long food lines in person not in cars, and people waiting for hours throughout the nation. Idle ships sat in ports on both the east and west coasts. And a headline read: ‘The Baltic Dry Index is Dead’, for trade had come to a screeching halt around the world. This was in December.

There were not holiday displays, no Christmas lights, no sales, no Santa Claus. Instead there was “great sadness” and confusion. Shopping malls had been shuttered and converted into shelters. People were on cots. Food outreach. Something bad had happened.

Christians however really stood out – they shined like burning torches, and told people point blank that “you need Jesus now”. There were those who rejected and those who received.

There were people in homes wearing coats and looking out their windows to dark dingy snow. [cold that’s coming and power outages]

Headlines: ‘Nationwide Outages Plague the Southwest’ and ‘Americans Don’t Know Who to Blame for Darkness’

The darkness stretched into Canada though it did not go everywhere.

Saw an outline of the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii, and there were lights flickering, just like a light bulb flickers before it goes out. Thus, America was like a light bulb about to go out. [MOVIE quote: “Foreign Correspondent”]

Fat Vultures had rotting food hanging from their mouths.

Depression was embodied – face mask on with a smile on it, and it pushed people down

Saint Louis arch and men with nuclear suitcases cuffed to them, and they got into black SUVs and they dispersed all directions. Each had a Wall Street Journal and wore heavily tinted sunglasses.

Headlines: Market crashes, yields being lost, and one even had sympathy for the swastika

Tired crowds, tired people, everyone was heavy

Christians reminded people of what Jesus had said about “winter”.

Lights of churches across America were seen, and Coverstone felt that they were “keeping warmth and hope in their communities”

The white figure arose out of one of those lights and said, “Brace yourself, brace, brace, brace yourself on the Word and my promises, and do not rely on your own strength.”

**This goes along with the Desert Road Dream with people in line for food and only a few are allowed in a store at a time and there are armed guards who check on what people are buying.

** The part also about the cold that’s coming and power outages are also in the Desert Road dream wherein people had frozen to death

The Hail to the Chief dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhSvS-huYJw&t=1885s

Summary: By the State of the Union 2023 the state of our union will be that of tyranny such as is found in China. Though most within the House and Senate have worked to bring about this goal, they are terror stricken by the force of its realization, and those who dare to question are not heard from again. This aligns with Jonathan Cahn’s “Return of the gods” and the Enchantress/Transformer – perhaps even the whore that rides the beast.

More of an explanation found at this link: “What is Really Going On: Coverstone’s Hail to the Chief Dream,” https://holylight4u.wordpress.com/2022/09/02/what-is-really-going-on-coverstones-hail-to-the-chief-dream-has-commenced/

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING AND “WHY” IT’S ALL HAPPENING:

The Distraction Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPwbvycN1Fw&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=43

Summary: Plane representing America being intentionally directed downward by the pilot, but no one noticed because they were busy on their electronic devices. Meanwhile, China and Russia in sync with one another move forward with war plans as planes swarm Taiwan and missiles rain down on Ukraine. Large smoking silos in western Europe are then uncovered, but nothing was launched. But one of the ships off of Taiwan did launch a missile that headed east across the Pacific ocean, and its trajectory stopped over the middle of the U.S. There was an explosion above the clouds. It was then that the plane representing the U.S. lost all power, and everyone who had been oblivious before realized what was happening as the powerless plane descended sharply and swiftly. Panic overcame everyone. It was then that the Lord spoke “I told them to pray, but they did not. They need to take it seriously now.”

Update as of 10-26-22 and how this dream is being fulfilled:

the Millstone Dream,” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5chA0ly2Dw&list=PLW8JhAzepVMqWXzvYTiWm9sf2xzf1tSao&index=44

Summary: Why America is being judged… this is about the steady judgment and suffocation of America via a millstone with an enormous rope attached to it that was miles wide, fallen from the sky into the Pacific ocean. As the stone landed, the rope formed a circle completely around the U.S. And as the stone sank, the rope tightened, until the Midwest began to choke. And the heartbeat of America could be heard, even as the millstone thudded against the bottom of the ocean. The noose loosened briefly, but not for long.

And the Lord said, “This is for the slaughter of and for the hands that shed innocent blood.” And the Lord’s hand pushed the millstone through the Earth’s mantle violently and the rope tightened around the nation’s throat. There were earthquakes, and the nation died swiftly at that point after a brief moment of relief. And the Lord appeared on a white horse saying, “I keep my word. And I will be faithful to keep my word as it regards the blessing and the curse. There is not much time to work, and those that know, know this deeply. Get busy. Stay busy. And know that I am coming back very soon.” And the horse and rider were gone in a flash. It ends with the fields being full of crops absolutely white unto harvest with only a few people working in them. And then large groups of people appeared from north, south, east and west ran at full speed with bags over their shoulder and sickles in their hands, working swiftly as the sun began to set.

And the Lord said quickly, “It’s too late to START bracing, and the braced are about to be tested harshly. So, LOCK in place.”

Blessings and Cursings” Still Apply

Leviticus 26 “14‘But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments,15and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant,16I also will do this to you…”

Deuteronomy 28 “15“But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you…47“Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.”

Jeremiah 151Then the Lord said to me, “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before Me, My mind would not be favorable toward this people. Cast them out of My sight, and let them go forth. 2And it shall be, if they say to you, ‘Where should we go?’ then you shall tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord:

“Such as are for death, to death;
And such as are for the sword, to the sword;
And such as are for the famine, to the famine;
And such as are for the captivity, to the captivity.” ’

3“And I will appoint over them four forms of destruction,” says the Lord: “the sword to slay, the dogs to drag, the birds of the heavens and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy.”

Ezekiel 14 “12The word of the Lord came again to me, saying: 13“Son of man, when a land sins against Me by persistent unfaithfulness, I will stretch out My hand against it; I will cut off its supply of bread, send famineon it, and cut off man and beast from it. 14Even if these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness,” says the Lord God.

15“If I cause wild beasts to pass through the land, and they empty it, and make it so desolate that no man may pass through because of the beasts, 16even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters; only they would be delivered, and the land would be desolate.

17“Or if I bring a swordon that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land,’ and I cut off man and beast from it, 18even though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but only they themselves would be delivered.

19“Or if I senda pestilence into that land and pour out My fury on it in blood, and cut off from it man and beast, 20even though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live,” says the Lord God, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only themselves by their righteousness.”

21For thus says the Lord God: “How much more it shall be when I send My four severe judgments on Jerusalem—the sword and famine and wild beasts and pestilence—to cut off man and beast from it?”

But If…

Leviticus 26 40But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me, 41and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies;if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt—42then I will remember My covenant…”

Spiritual Josephs, Redeeming the Time

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

There is much talk of food scarcity these days. They call it “food scarcity” to be more palatable for western people who are not used to famine. But, essentially, it is famine that is coming, and along with it is an economic collapse and an overwhelming realization of their loss of liberties.

As Christians we all likely have read by now the story of Joseph near the end of the book of Genesis. After enduring the rejection of and betrayal of his brothers, slavery, a false accusation that lands him in prison for years, and a prison-mate who upon being released initially forgot how much Joseph had helped him. Then, Pharaoh had a dream, and the prison-mate remembers Joseph’s interpretation and fulfillment of his own dream. Thus, Pharaoh called for Joseph to interpret his own disturbing dream of the fat cows and emaciated cows, the full, beautiful ears of corn and the dry, inedible ears of corn. And Joseph explained to Pharaoh that both of his dreams were one and the same, and was doubled because God was certainly and very shortly going to bring it to pass. It was then that Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of the whole land of Egypt and Pharaoh’s household as well, and Joseph had all the excess, abundance of grain stored up in every city for seven years. At the end of those seven years of abundance, everyone becomes overwhelmed by great loss and hunger, not just in Egypt but also the surrounding areas. And God used the dream of Pharaoh and the interpretation of Joseph in order to supply in time of great need.

It has been said by many Christians that we as Christians are to be storing up food for our families and to share with others. But no where in the gospels did Jesus ever say that “when you see everything coming to pass store up food to share.” No where in the gospels did Jesus say, “you all are to be like Joseph storing up food in that final generation.” Not even the Apostle Paul said this, nor John, nor Peter, nor James or Jude. Instead Jesus said to lay up treasure in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21), and to trust Him for our daily bread (Matthew 6:11 and Luke 11:3). After all, man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matthew 4).

What is clear from Scripture is that a time was coming and is here of a famine of the word of the Lord. “Behold the days are come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” (Amos 8:11). It is clear from Scripture that we are to be ready in season and out of season to share the hope that we have in Christ (2 Timothy 4:2). This means, that on good days and bad days, perfect moments and imperfect moments when we feel sick or down or overwhelmed or are grieving a loss that we are to be ready to give an answer of hope to those who have none. And we are to be redeeming the time for the days are evil. This redeeming of the time carries with it the concept of “seizing the day” or seizing the moment and not letting it pass us by. It is a merchant’s metaphor used here for merchants would “diligently observe the time for buying and selling, and easily part with their pleasure for gain” (Matthew Poole’s Commentary, https://biblehub.com/commentaries/ephesians/5-16.htm). Even so, we as Christians are to “5Act wisely toward outsiders, redeeming the time. 6Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone” (Colossians 4). Again, redeeming the time means to grasp the moment you are given for a productive purpose of presenting the Gospel of hope.

And indeed, incredibly dark, cold, and hard times are coming upon America, the likes of which Americans have not known, times of scarcity and lack, times of discomfort and want, overwhelming times of great palpable evil. But, God has called His Church, His Body, His Bride to be lights, to extend hope and to be aware that the greatest needs will not be physical nor even emotional, but spiritual. For the greatest lack is of spiritual bread, spiritual water, spiritual clothing, spiritual bank accounts in the heavens.

You see, if we are to be like Joseph at all then we are to be the spiritual Josephs of this generation. And in the famine that is coming, and when disasters hit, we are to open up those spiritual storehouses of Biblical grain to nourish and point them to Jesus. They may thirst, but their greatest thirst is for the Living Water (John 4 and John 7). They may think they only hunger physically, but they are hungry for the Bread of Life (John 6). They may think they are only upset because they want new clothes, but really they need the Robes of Righteousness to clothe their spiritual nakedness (Isaiah 61:10, Revelation 3:17-19). They may be intent upon their loss of finances or their home or their cars or other worldly goods, but they are clueless as to their great need to buy of God gold refined in the fire. Indeed, even earthy Christians who are so tied to this world will need to be reminded of this like the church of Laodicea in Revelation 3.

Be ready Christian. Be ready. Having gone through your own trials like Joseph, be ready to give an answer. Be ready with the Word of Life. Be ready with the rivers of living water bubbling up from deep inside you. Having faced the lion and the bear like David, be ready now for Goliath. Take up those 5 smooth stones and run out to take on the giant. Sink that stone into his forehead and then take up his own sword and chop off his head. Get up oh Christian for the days are upon us wherein people are desperate for the word of hope that we have, for the treasures of salvation that we have, for the hope of eternity that we have! Forget about your comforts or discomforts. Forget about your comfort zone. Let go of your past whether good or bad, let go of all inadequacies and rise up, for the time is now! Is not His grace sufficient for you? Is not His strength made perfect in our weakness?

The field is white unto harvest, the storm clouds are brewing, the sun is setting, and Jesus is coming soon to take up His Bride and then pour out His wrath upon the earth. Wake up! Get up! Rise up! All that you’ve memorized in Scripture, all that you’ve learned from the Bible, all that you’ve believed even through your own tribulations, good times and bad, all that you’ve stored up in your knowledge bank, it is time to share it, to extend it, to offer it to this generation of darkness that is desperately in need. Be bold! Be courageous for the Lord our God is with you!

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. 2For behold, darkness covers the earth, and thick darkness is over the peoples; but the LORD will rise upon you, and His glory will appear over you.3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (Isaiah 60)

Jesus is coming soon! Let’s be ready!

Redeeming the time,

Do Not Be Deceived: Flash Point Live Omaha September 15th

Tags

, , , , ,

I don’t have time to build a case here today. I simply want to get this information out as soon as possible.

At hour 1:34:23 mark of the “FlashPoint LIVE Omaha | Mike Lindell, America & The Church (9/15/22),” https://rumble.com/v1kbltz-flashpoint-live-omaha-mike-lindell-america-and-the-church-91522.html, Hank Kunnamen speaks down about Christians who dare to say that America needs to repent by questioning how many would need to repent “to satisfy what YOU think is enough repentance for God to move.” And he goes on to say that just like Moses, “YOU as a person makes a difference in this country. And I don’t care how many people get up and demand that we repent for the ten thousandth time. THIS MAN IS STANDING BEFORE THE FACE OF GOD AND SAYING YOU WILL REMEMBER YOUR COVENANT AND YOU WILL SAVE AMERICA!!!!”

To this I will respond with Jeremiah 7, “1The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2“Stand in the gate of the Lord’s house, and proclaim there this word, and say, ‘Hear the word of the Lord, all you of Judah who enter in at these gates to worship the Lord!’ ” 3Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: “Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place. 4Do not trust in these lying words, saying, ‘The temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord, the temple of the Lord are these.’” What was going on here? The false prophets had been using the Temple as a sort of good luck charm, and had persuaded the people that God would never destroy His own Temple and thus would never have Jerusalem or the people overthrown. After all, God had to bless the place called by His name. He had made a covenant with them, and He could not and would not dare to break it. And the people believed these lying words.

Jeremiah 14 states, “13Then I said, “Ah, Lord God! Behold, the prophets say to them, ‘You shall not see the sword, nor shall you have famine, but I will give you [b]assured peace in this place.’ ”14And the Lord said to me, “The prophets prophesy lies in My name. I have not sent them, commanded them, nor spoken to them; they prophesy to you a false vision, [c]divination, a worthless thing, and the deceit of their heart. 15Therefore thus says the Lord concerning the prophets who prophesy in My name, whom I did not send, and who say, ‘Sword and famine shall not be in this land’—‘By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed! 16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; they will have no one to bury them—them nor their wives, their sons nor their daughters—for I will pour their wickedness on them.’”

Fore indeed according to Jeremiah 23,

11“For both prophet and priest are profane;
Yes, in My house I have found their wickedness,” says the Lord.
12“Therefore their way shall be to them
Like slippery ways;
In the darkness they shall be driven on
And fall in them;
For I will bring disaster on them,
The year of their punishment,” says the Lord.
13“And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria:
They prophesied by Baal
And caused My people Israel to err.
14Also I have seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem:
They commit adultery and walk in lies;
They also strengthen the hands of evildoers,
So that no one turns back from his wickedness.
All of them are like Sodom to Me,
And her inhabitants like Gomorrah.

15“Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets:

‘Behold, I will feed them with wormwood,
And make them drink the water of gall;
For from the prophets of Jerusalem
[f]Profaneness has gone out into all the land.’ ”

Even so, God Almighty reminds them in Jeremiah 7, “12“But go now to My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of My people Israel. 13And now, because you have done all these works,” says the Lord, “and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer, 14therefore I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh. 15And I will cast you out of My sight, as I have cast out all your brethren—the whole posterity of Ephraim. 16“Therefore do not pray for this people, nor lift up a cry or prayer for them, nor make intercession to Me; for I will not hear you…28“So you shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth. 29Cut off your hair and cast it away, and take up a lamentation on the desolate heights; for the Lord has rejected and forsaken the generation of His wrath.’”

How dare Kunneman (with those on stage and present in the audience agreeing), how dare he persuade the people that they and the nation need not repent??!! False prophet! He is a FALSE and LYING PROPHET!!!!!! I call you out! I say it like it is! False. You are FALSE!!!

And I warn all Christians everywhere to not listen to this man nor any message that he speaks nor any word of prophecy he may have. Do not take him seriously. He is a false prophet, prophesying lies in God’s name, and God will indeed deal with him.

Wake up Church!!! Wake up, oh Christian!!! Deception is rampant, and seducers are waxing worse and worse, deceiving an being deceived (2 Timothy 3:13). Do not follow them! Hold fast to the word of God–the very word of God that washes us clean, that makes us without spot and without wrinkle!!!!! (Ephesians 5:26).

Jesus is coming SOON!!!! Let’s be READY!!!!!!

Ever Discerning,

Holy Light Ministries
