- THAT THEY SHOULD SEEK
- And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them,
and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,
Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and
risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach
unto you, is Christ.
- And some of them believed, and consorted with
Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and
of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not,
moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser
sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar,
and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out
to the people.
- And when they found them not, they drew Jason
and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These
that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;
Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees
of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.
- And they troubled the people and the rulers of
the city, when they heard these things. And when they had taken
security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.
- And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and
Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue
of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica,
in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and
searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which
were Greeks, and of men, not a few. But when the Jews of Thessalonica
had knowledge that the word of God was preached of Paul at Berea,
they came thither also, and stirred up the people.
- And then immediately the brethren sent away Paul
to go as it were to the sea: but Silas and Timotheus abode there
- And they that conducted Paul brought him unto
Athens: and receiving a commandment unto Silas and Timotheus
for to come to him with all speed, they departed. Now while Paul
waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when
he saw the city wholly given to idolatry. Therefore disputed
he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons,
and in the market daily with them that met with him. Then certain
philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered
- And some said, What will this babbler say? other
some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because
he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.
- And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus,
saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest,
is? For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we
would know therefore what these things mean. (For all the Athenians
and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else,
but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.) Then Paul stood
in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive
that in all things ye are too superstitious. For as I passed
by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription,
TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him
declare I unto you.
- God that made the world and all things therein,
seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples
made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though
he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath,
and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men
for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined
the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after
him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain
also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. George went to be with the Lord in 2003. We were
Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years. We prayed to God in 1992
to allow us to do a ministry speaking out against Scientology.
Six months later God led us to the truth: out of the cult of
Mormonism. We did not know at the time we were in a cult. No-one
had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life by devious methods and systematic

We attend church if the message is from the authorized KJV Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. The Bible
calls for a falling away from churches and becoming
atheistic before Jesus comes back for His Bride. The true believers
are called 'Ekklesia.' Our newsletters prove this fact and prove
that the Bible is true from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development (Agenda
21). The Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten
horns), each king (horn) will receive a region of the world as
a reward for work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason
for the present development of NAU (The North American Union)
as well as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we
are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied
in the Bible. The end result will not be Democracy but a form
of Fascist Communism (Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the Tribulation to
confirm that we are moving into that space of time.

to be ready for the Lords coming. Are you sure that
you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out
of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof"

- QUESTION: "DOES GOD REQUIRE SABBATH-KEEPING OF CHRISTIANS?"
- Answer: In Colossians 2:16-17, the apostle Paul declares,
Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or
drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration
or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were
to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Similarly,
Romans 14:5 states, One man considers one day more sacred
than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one
should be fully convinced in his own mind. These Scriptures
make it clear that, for the Christian, Sabbath-keeping is a matter
of spiritual freedom, not a command from God. Sabbath-keeping
is an issue on which Gods Word instructs us not to judge
each other. Sabbath-keeping is a matter about which each Christian
needs to be fully convinced in his/her own mind.
- In the early chapters of the book of Acts, the first Christians
were predominantly Jews. When Gentiles began to receive the gift
of salvation through Jesus Christ, the Jewish Christians had
a dilemma. What aspects of the Mosaic Law and Jewish tradition
should Gentile Christians be instructed to obey? The apostles
met and discussed the issue in the Jerusalem council (Acts 15).
The decision was, It is my judgment, therefore, that we
should not make it difficult for the Gentiles who are turning
to God. Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain
from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the
meat of strangled animals and from blood (Acts 15:19-20).
Sabbath-keeping was not one of the commands the apostles felt
was necessary to force on Gentile believers. It is inconceivable
that the apostles would neglect to include Sabbath-keeping if
it was Gods command for Christians to observe the Sabbath
- A common error in the Sabbath-keeping debate is the concept
that the Sabbath was the day of worship. Groups such as the Seventh
Day Adventists hold that God requires the church service to be
held on Saturday, the Sabbath day. That is not what the Sabbath
command was. The Sabbath command was to do no work on the Sabbath
day (Exodus 20:8-11). Nowhere in Scripture is the Sabbath day
commanded to be the day of worship. Yes, Jews in Old Testament,
New Testament, and modern times use Saturday as the day of worship,
but that is not the essence of the Sabbath command. In the book
of Acts, whenever a meeting is said to be on the Sabbath, it
is a meeting of Jews and/or Gentile converts to Judaism, not
- When did the early Christians meet? Acts 2:46-47 gives us
the answer, Every day they continued to meet together in
the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together
with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor
of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those
who were being saved. If there was a day that Christians
met regularly, it was the first day of the week (our Sunday),
not the Sabbath day (our Saturday) (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians
16:2). In honor of Christs resurrection on Sunday, the
early Christians observed Sunday not as the Christian Sabbath
but as a day to especially worship Jesus Christ.
- Is there anything wrong with worshipping on Saturday, the
Jewish Sabbath? Absolutely not! We should worship God every day,
not just on Saturday or Sunday! Many churches today have both
Saturday and Sunday services. There is freedom in Christ (Romans
8:21; 2 Corinthians 3:17; Galatians 5:1). Should a Christian
practice Sabbath-keeping, that is, not working on Saturdays?
If a Christian feels led to do so, absolutely, yes (Romans 14:5).
However, those who choose to practice Sabbath-keeping should
not judge those who do not keep the Sabbath (Colossians 2:16).
Further, those who do not keep the Sabbath should avoid being
a stumbling block (1 Corinthians 8:9) to those who do keep the
Sabbath. Galatians 5:13-15 sums up the whole issue: You,
my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom
to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.
The entire law is summed up in a single command: Love your
neighbor as yourself. If you keep on biting and devouring
each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
- QUESTION: "IS WORKING ON SUNDAY A SIN?"
- Answer: Working on Sunday is definitely not a sin. Working
on Sunday is not prohibited in the Bible. The idea that Christians
should not be working on Sunday comes from a misunderstanding
of Old Testament Sabbath-keeping for the Israelites and its relation
to Sunday worship for Christians. According to Exodus 20:811,
the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week on which the Israelites
were to rest in remembrance that God created the universe in
six days and then rested on the seventh day. Keeping
the Sabbath holy was defined as not working on the Sabbath.
- When God provided manna in the desert during the Exodus wanderings,
He commanded that the manna was to be gathered for six days only
with enough gathered on the sixth day to feed the people during
the Sabbath rest. Gathering the manna was considered to be work,
just as planting and harvesting was considered work. Exodus 31:1416
and 35:2 prescribed death for anyone who worked on the Sabbath.
Buying and selling on the Sabbath day was also considered a desecration
of the Sabbath (Nehemiah 13:1517). Clearly, keeping the
Sabbath day holy required the cessation of all work
for the Israelites.
- The Sabbath day was established so the Israelites would rest
from their labors, only to begin again after a one-day rest.
Why, then, do Christians not have to observe the same law? The
key to understanding this is to see that the various elements
of the Sabbath symbolized the coming of the Messiah, who would
fulfill the Law by providing a permanentas opposed to a
one-dayrest for His people. With the establishment of the
Old Testament Law, the Jews were constantly laboring
to make themselves acceptable to God. Their labors included trying
to obey all the commandments of the ceremonial law, the temple
law, and the sacrificial law. Of course, they couldnt possibly
keep all those laws, so God provided an array of sin offerings
and sacrifices so they could come to Him for forgiveness and
restore fellowship with Him, but only temporarily.
- Just as they began their physical labors after a one-day
rest, so, too, did they have to continue to offer sacrifices.
Hebrews 10:1 tells us that the law can never, by the same
sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those
who draw near to worship. But these sacrifices were offered
in anticipation of the ultimate sacrifice of Christ on the cross,
who after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever,
sat down at the right hand of God (Hebrews 10:12). Jesus
rested after performing the ultimate sacrificeHe ceased
from His labor of atonement because there was nothing more to
be done, ever. Because of what He did, we no longer have to labor
in Law-keeping in order to be justified in the sight of God,
and this includes the observance of the Sabbath. Jesus was sent
so that we might rest in God and in what He has provided.
- By saying, The Sabbath was made for man, not man for
the Sabbath (Mark 2:27), Jesus was restating the principle
that the Sabbath rest was instituted to relieve man of his labors,
just as Jesus came to relieve us of our attempting to achieve
salvation by our works. We no longer rest for only one day, but
forever cease our laboring to attain Gods favor. Jesus
is our rest from works now, just as He is the door to heaven,
where we will rest in Him forever. There is no other Sabbath
rest besides Jesus. He alone satisfies the requirements of the
Law, and He alone provides the sacrifice that atones for sin.
He is Gods plan for us to cease from the labor of our own
- In Colossians 2:1617 the apostle Paul declares, Therefore
do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with
regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath
day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the
reality, however, is found in Christ. We are no longer
commanded to cease working on the Sabbath, nor is Sunday now
the Christian Sabbath. Although many Christians prefer
to take Sunday off and spend at least part of it in corporate
worship, working on Sunday is not sin. Many Christians, such
as doctors and nurses, have no choice but to work on Sunday and,
as a society, we should be very grateful to them. But Christians
who work on Sunday should do so with the understanding that worship
is not limited to any one day of the week but is to be an ongoing
part of their lives.
- MATTHEW 3:2 HOW COULD THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BE AT HAND WHEN
IT IS IN HEAVEN?
- Matthew 3:2 "And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom
of heaven is at hand."
- Mt 3:2 Verse 2. Repent ye. Repentance implies sorrow for
past offences, (2Co 7:10) a deep sense of the evil of sin as
committed against God, (Ps 51:4) and a full purpose to turn from
transgression and to lead a holy life. A true penitent has sorrow
for sin, not only because it is ruinous to his soul, but chiefly
because it is an offence against God, and is that abominable
thing which he hates, Jer 44:4. It is produced by seeing the
great danger and misery to which it exposes us; by seeing the
justness and holiness of God, (Job 42:6) and by seeing that our
sins have been committed against Christ, and were the cause of
his death, Zec 12:10; Lu 22:61; 24:53. There are two words in
the New Testament translated repentance-- one of which denotes
a change of mind, or a reformation of life; and the other, sorrow
or regret that sin has been committed. The word used here is
the former; calling the Jews to a change of life, or a reformation
of conduct. In the time of John, the nation had become extremely
wicked and corrupt, perhaps more so than at any preceding period,
Hence both he and Christ began their ministry by calling to repentance.
- The kingdom of heaven is at hand. The phrases, kingdom of
heaven, kingdom of Christ, and kingdom of God, are o frequent
occurrence in the Bible. They all refer to the same thing. The
expectation of such a kingdom was taken from the Old Testament,
and especially from Daniel, Da 7:13-14. The prophets had told
of a successor to David that should sit on his throne, 1Ki 2:4;
8:25; Jer 33:17. The Jews expected a great national deliverer.
They supposed that when the Messiah should appear, all the dead
would be raised; that the judgment would take place; and that
the enemies of the Jews would be destroyed, and themselves advanced
to great national dignity and honour.
- The language in which they were accustomed to describe this
event was retained by our Saviour and his apostles. Yet they
early attempted to correct the common notions respecting his
reign. This was one design, doubtless, of John in preaching repentance.
Instead of summoning them to military exercises, and collecting
an army, which would have been in accordance with their expectations,
he called them to a change of life; to the doctrine of repentance--a
state of things far more accordant with the approach of a kingdom
- The phrases, kingdom of God and kingdom of heaven, have been
supposed to have a considerable variety of meaning. Some have
thought that they refer to the state of things in heaven; others,
to the personal reign of Christ on earth; others, that they mean
the church, or the reign of Christ in the hearts of his people.
There can be no doubt that there is reference in the words to
the condition of things in heaven, after this life. But the church
of God is a preparatory state to that beyond the grave; a state
in which Christ pre-eminently rules and reigns; and there is
no doubt that it sometimes refers to the state of things in the
church; and it means, therefore, the state of things which the
Messiah was to set up-- his spiritual reign began in the church
on earth, and completed in heaven.
- The phrase would be best translated, "the reign of God
draws near." We do not say commonly of a kingdom that it
is moveable, or that it approaches. A reign may be said to be
at hand; or the time when Christ should reign was at hand. In
this sense it is meant that the time when Christ should reign,
or set up his kingdom, or begin his dominion on earth, under
the Christian economy, was about to commence. The phrase, then,
should not be confined to any period of that reign, but includes
his whole dominion over his people on earth and in heaven.
- In the passage here it clearly means that the coming of the
Messiah was near; or that the time of the reign of God, which
the Jews had expected, was coming.
- The word heaven, or heavens, as it is in the original, means
sometimes the place, so called; and sometimes is, by a figure
of speech, put for the Great Being whose residence is there;
as in Da 4:26, "the heavens do rule." See also Mr 11:30;
Lu 15:18. As that kingdom was one of purity, it was proper that
the people should prepare themselves for it by turning from their
sins, and directing their minds to a suitable fitness for his

- WHO ARE THE TWO BEASTS IN REVELATION 13?
- Revelation 13:1 "And I stood upon the sand of the
sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads
and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads
the name of blasphemy." Revelation 13:11 "And
I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had
two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon."
- I. The characteristics of the beasts.
- A. The characteristics of the first beast, Re 13:1-10.
- (a) It comes up out of the sea, (Re 13:1)--out of the commotion,
the agitation of nations--a new power that springs up from those
- (b) It has seven heads, and ten horns, and upon its horns
ten crowns or diadems, Re 13:1.
- (c) In its general form, it resembles a leopard; its feet
are like those of a bear; its mouth like that of a lion. Its
connexion with the great "dragon"--with Satan--is indicated
by, the statement that it derives its "power, and its seat,
and its authority from him, (Re 13:2;) a striking representation
of the fact that the civil or secular Roman power which supported
the church of Rome through all its corrupt and bloody progress
was the putting forth of the power of Satan on the earth.
- (d) One of the heads of this beast is "wounded to death;"
that is, with a wound that is in itself mortal. This wound is,
however, in some way as yet unexplained, so healed that the vitality
yet remains, and all the world pays homage to the beast, Re 13:3.
A blow is aimed at this authority which seems to be fatal; and
there is some healing or restorative process by which its power
is recovered, and by which the universality of its dominion and
influence is again restored.
- (e) The effect of this is, that the world renders homage
really to the "dragon," the source of this power, though
in the form of adoration of the "beast," Re 13:4. That
is, while the outward homage is rendered to the "beast,"
the real worship is that of the "dragon," or Satan.
This beast is regarded as
- (1) incomparable--"Who is like unto the "beast?"
- (2) invincible--"Who is able to war with him?"
- (f) In this form the beast is endowed with a mouth that "speaks
great things and blasphemies," Re 13:5; that is, the power
here referred to is arrogant, and reviles the God of heaven.
- (g) The time during which he is to continue is "forty
and two months;" that is, twelve hundred and sixty days,
or twelve hundred and sixty years. Cmt. on Re 11:2.
- (h) The characteristics of this beast, and of his dominion,
- (1.) He opens his mouth in blasphemy against God, and his
church, and all holy beings, Re 13:6.
- (2.) He makes war with the saints and overcomes them, Re
- (3.) He asserts his power over all nations, Re 13:7.
- (4.) He is worshipped by all that dwell on the earth, whose
names are not in the book of life, Re 13:8.
- (i) All are called on to hear--as if the announcement were
important for the church, Re 13:9.
- (j) The result or issue of the power represented by this
monster, Re 13:10. It had led others into captivity, it would
itself be made captive; it had been distinguished for slaying
others, it would itself feel the power of the sword. Until this
is accomplished, the patience and faith of the saints must be
sorely tried, Re 13:10.
- B. The characteristics of the second beast, Re 13:11-18.
- (a) It comes out of the earth, (Re 13:11)--having a different
origin from the former; not springing from troubled elements,
as of nations at strife, but from that which is firm and established--like
the solid earth.
- (b) It has two horns like a lamb, but it speaks as a dragon,
Re 13:11. It is apparently mild, gentle, lamb-like, and inoffensive;
but it is, in fact, arrogant, haughty, and imperative.
- (c) Its dominion is co-extensive with that of the first beast,
and the effect of its influence is to induce the world to do
homage to the first beast, Re 13:12.
- (d) It has the power of performing great wonders, and particularly
of deceiving the world by the "miracles" which it performs.
This power is particularly manifested in restoring what might
be regarded as an "image" of the beast which was wounded,
though not put to death, and by giving life to that image, and
causing those to be put to death who will not worship it, Re
- (e) This beast causes a certain mark to be affixed to all,
small and great, and attempts a jurisdiction over all persons,
so that none may buy or sell, or engage in any business, who

- POPE FRANCIS DECLARES CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISM IS A SICKNESS
THAT THEY MUST COMBAT
- Dececember 3, 2015 - Is a belief in the strict, literal interpretation
of the Bible a sickness? Pope Francis appears to
think so. Just a few days ago, multiple reporters heard Francis
describe fundamentalism as a sickness that is in all religions
including Christianity. But precisely what is fundamentalism?
If you go to Google, it is defined as a form of a religion,
especially Islam or Protestant Christianity, that upholds belief
in the strict, literal interpretation of scripture. So
does Pope Francis really intend to combat those that
believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible? I know that
this may sound really bizarre to many of you. But apparently
the Pope really said these things. The following is an excerpt

- December 14, 2015 - WND - A judge has ordered a landlord
who was involved in a dispute with a Muslim tenant to learn Islam
as part of her punishment for a fight in which the renter was
pushed down a flight of stairs prompting a
legal analyst to describe the action as a constitutional
outrage. And a higher court has been asked to look into
the actions by Judge Paul Yee Jr., of the Massachusetts court
system. It happened at the sentencing for Daisy Obi, who is a
landlord, for a physical altercation in which tenant Gihan Suliman
was knocked down a flight of stairs, suffering a bruise, cuts
on her lip and a ligament injury.
- Obi was convicted of the altercation, even though she denied
it. She also denied allegations she berated Suliman over Islam.
Yee stated to Obi, I want you to learn about the Muslim
faith. I want you to enroll and attend an introductory course
on Islam. I do want you to understand people of the Muslim faith,
and they need to be respected. They may worship Allah, but they
need to be respected. ISIS Exposed: Beheadings, Slavery,

- December 13, 2015 - WND - By Paul Bremmer - Only a day after
two ISIS-inspired Muslims slaughtered 14 people at a Christmas
party in San Bernardino, California, Attorney General Loretta
Lynch went before a Muslim advocacy group and urged Muslim parents
to contact the Justice Department and the Department of Education
if their children are bullied at school. Jesse Lee Peterson,
a radio host and founder of the civil rights nonprofit BOND,
believes Lynch and the Obama administration have their priorities
backward if they worry more about an anti-Muslim backlash than
about Islamic terror at a moment like this. No looking
out for the Americans, no looking out for the concerned citizens,
but take care of the Muslims, Peterson, author of The
Antidote, said recently on his radio show. Had this
attack been carried out by Christians, it would be a different
story. Obama refused to call the slaying Islamic terror.

- FOR ROBERT DEAR, RELIGION AND RAGE BEFORE PLANNED PARENTHOOD
- December 1, 2015 - By RICHARD FAUSSET - The stage is now
set for genuine, Evangelical Christians to be blamed for the
Colorado Springs attack on Planned Parenthood clinic. Get Ready,
for persecution is coming!!
- NEWS BRIEF: "For Robert Dear, Religion and Rage Before
Planned Parenthood Attack: He believed he was Evangelical Christian",
The New York Times, December 1, 2015 - "The man she had
married professed to be deeply religious. But after more than
seven years with Robert L. Dear Jr., Barbara Micheau had come
to see life with him as a kind of hell on earth. By January 1993,
she had had enough. In a sworn affidavit as part of her divorce
case, Ms. Micheau described Mr. Dear as a serial philanderer
and a problem gambler, a man who kicked her, beat her head against
the floor and fathered two children with other women while they
were together. "
- Now, here comes the propaganda which threatens to promptly
brand all Fundamental Christians as hateful, hurtful ideologues
which need to be neutralized if society is to be kept safe. "He
found excuses for his transgressions, she said, in his idiosyncratic
views on Christian eschatology and the nature of salvation. 'He
claims to be a Christian and is extremely evangelistic, but does
not follow the Bible in his actions', Ms. Micheau said in the
court document. 'He says that as long as he believes he will
be saved, he can do whatever he pleases. He is obsessed with
the world coming to an end'.
- Therefore, once the Media Spin Masters are finished all Christians
who are evangelistic, who believe we are saved, and who are concerned
with the End of the World, are dangerous to society, especially
to the organizations held up in high esteem, like Planned Parenthood!
[...] Speaking of the horrific reign of Antichrist, God foretells,
"as soon as they finish shattering and crushing the power
of the holy people, all these things will be finished."
- " When He (the Lamb) broke open the fifth seal, I saw
underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slaughtered
because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which
they had maintained [out of loyalty to Christ]. 10 They cried
in a loud voice, saying, O Lord, holy and true, how long now
before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood on those
[unregenerate ones] who dwell on the earth? 11 Then they were
each given a white robe; and they were told to rest and wait
quietly for a little while longer, until the number of their
fellow servants and their brothers and sisters who were to be
killed even as they had been, would be completed." (Revelation
6:9-11; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary) Americans
are being prepared to turn on fellow Christian Americans.
SLC GIVES PLANNED PARENTHOOD A HUMAN RIGHTS AWARD; CITY SAYS
IT'S NOT A RESPONSE TO CUTS OR UTAH POLITICS

- How many babies are murdered every day and every year by Planned
- NEWS BRIEF: " SLC gives Planned Parenthood a human rights
award", The Salt Lake City Tribune, Dec 2, 2015 - "The
Planned Parenthood Association of Utah is one of the state's
biggest human rights champions, according to the Salt Lake City
Mayor's Office. The local affiliate is among a trio of this year's
Human Rights Awards winners, announced Tuesday. It also is one
of several nationwide to have its federal funding cut by a Republican
governor, but the nod is not a response to those GOP moves from
Utah's left-leaning capital ..." Ok, now we understand.
While the state officials are Conservative, Salt Lake City is
run by Liberals. Now we can see how such a contradiction is possible,
how an organization dedicated to killing innocent unborn babies
within the mother's womb can be given a "Human Rights Award".
This award represents exactly the kind of hypocrisy the world
condemned when Saudi Arabia was given the chairmanship of the
United Nations' Human Rights Commission!
- "This is the third year, he recalls, that the Utah Planned
Parenthood affiliate has been nominated for the prize, given
by the diversity and human rights arm of Mayor Ralph Becker's
administration. It is a recognition, he said, that the group
makes life better for women who live in Salt Lake City, said
Zamora, head of the Human Rights Commission." Exactly how
many unborn babies still die every year at the hands of Planned
- NEWS BRIEFS: "How many babies die in abortions?",
LifeNews.com, email sent 12/1/2015
- "Last week, during Thanksgiving, the Centers for Disease
Control released its national abortion report on the number of
babies who die in abortions every year across the United States
... approximately 699,000 babies lost their lives in abortions
in 2012, the latest year CDC has produced figures ... 58,250
babies die in an abortion every month ... 13,442 babies die in
an abortion every week ... , 915 babies die in an abortion EVERY
SINGLE DAY." Yet, there is more horror, because the states
of California, Maryland, and New Hampshire are NOT included in
these figures. Estimates are that over 1,000,000 babies die per
year in American Planned Parenthood clinics. And, most of these
babies were so brutally murdered that nurses have to count the
parts that come out to make sure that they are not leaving a
body part or two inside the womb!
- Can you see these murdered babies' bodies stacking up like
corkwood toward Heaven, in God's eyes? Listen to how God speaks
of the collective sins of America, just before He destroys this
country in judgment.
- "... Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is
become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit,
and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird ... For her sins
have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities..."
(Revelation 18:2, 5)
Planned Parenthood is the epitome of this kind of hateful and
sinful and prideful nation. How is God going to destroy this
once great nation? "Therefore shall her plagues come in
one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly
burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her."
(Revelation 18:8) THIS is the eternal legacy which the "Humanitarian
Planned Parenthood" will deliver upon America! The stage
is now set for genuine, Evangelical Christians to be blamed for

- THE FEAR IS VISIBLE: THE UGLY TRUTH DONALD TRUMP HAS EXPOSED
- December 22, 2015 - By Karl Denninger - The Market Ticker
- This article was originally published by Karl Denninger at
The Market Ticker.
- The fear in both the GOP and Democratic party is visible
at the surface when it comes to Trump, and its not that
hes any of what theyve accused him of. No, its
really much simpler than that, and both Republican and Democrat
parties, along with the mainstream media, are utterly terrified
that you, the average American, is going to figure out what underlies
all of these institutions in America.
- No, its not that theyre evil.
- Its worse, for evil frequently is recognized and fought
back yet for decades America has not awakened to what has been
going on in the political and media establishment. It was evident
during the Vietnam war and has only gotten worse since.
- For those who dont recall the Tet Offensive was an
attack launched by the NVA and VietCong by some 70,000 troops
in a coordinated series of attacks across more than 100 targets.
It was an attempt to foment rebellion among the Souths
- Tet failed in its military objective, in that there were
too few troops spread too thinly, and once the US and South Vietnamese
figured out what was going on they literally slaughtered a huge
number of the attackers. To put perspective on this at the Battle
of Hue roughly 500 US Marines and South Vietnamese were killed
but over 5,000 NVA and VietCong died in that one battle alone.
- The story was repeated through the country; while the North
managed to attack they lost virtually the entire attacking force,
while not managing to take one mile of territory. They also failed
to incite rebellion, which was the primary goal of the offensive
in the first place.
- Our media, however, reported that we lost. They were present
and they lied, including Walter Cronkite. Cronkite reported in
February of 1968 that the war was a stalemate and probably
unwinnable despite knowing that the NVA had virtually been
rendered soldierless in the Tet offensive as their casualty rate
ran ten times the Souths.
- FRANKLIN GRAHAM QUITS REPUBLICAN PARTY
- Evangelical leader also calls on Christians to enter public
- December 22, 2015 - By Bob Unruh - WND - Franklin Graham
says in order for America to avoid trouble that is on the horizon,
Christians need to pray about running for office where
they can have an impact. And, by the way, he writes, that
doesnt necessarily mean aligning with the Republican Party,
which throughout the years has had a long history of supporting
biblical values. Because hes gone. Unless more godly
men and women get in this process and change this wicked system,
the chief of Samaritans Purse wrote on his Facebook page,
our country is in for trouble. I want to challenge
Christians, even pastors, across the country to pray about running
for office where they can have an impact. We need mayors, [county]
commissioners, city council members, school board members who
will uphold biblical values.

- FRAUDULENT LANGUAGE IN THE BOOK OF MORMON
- In the original edition of the Book of Mormon, there is much
evidence of fraudthat is, the use of words, phrases, and
sentences that reveal an obvious attempt to deceive. Instances
of this are so numerous and so blatant they cannot be ignored.
The following provide just a few examples.
- Alma 37:38, dated at 73 B.C., speaks of the people
using a compass. However, such an instrument was
not invented until about A.D. 1100. How could there be a divinely
inspired translation of a word describing something that did
not exist? This is a mark of fraud.
- 1 Nephi 18:25, dated at 589 B.C., speaks of horses
and asses. But, these animals were unknown in the
Western Hemisphere until the Spaniards introduced them about
450 years ago. Can anyone honestly believe that such a bungled
mistake occurred as a result of divine revelation?
- Ether 9:19 speaks of elephants being in
America when the Jaredites arrived, which was supposed to have
been around 2250 B.C. However, it is a well-known fact that elephants
were not native to America. To suggest that they were is absurd,
and proves the Book of Mormon to be erroneous. If someone were
to argue that elephants might possibly have been brought to America
in the Jaredites boats, such an argument could be disproved
easily since elephants were not native to Bible lands either.
- Surprising as it may seem, no less than six times
the Book of Mormon employs the abbreviation &c
(and so forth), a usage peculiar to the nineteenth century (subtitle
of 2 Nephi; Jacob 1:11; Mosiah 8:8; 23:5; Alma 3:5). It can hardly
be suggested that such a symbol is a translation
from ancient writings. This kind of mistake is clear and compelling
evidence of the recent origin of the book.
- In Jacob 7:27, the French word adieu occurs. But how
could a modern French word have found its way into those ancient
plates? This is additional evidence of fraud, and presents grounds
for rejecting the Book of Mormon.
- In Jacob 3:11 and Mosiah 29:14, the word faculties
appears. However, this is a term dating back no earlier than
middle English. Strange, indeed, that it would be translated
from a word on an ancient plate dating over 1,000 years earlier.

- THIS NATION'S VOTERS JUST REJECTED SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BY A
- December 20, 2015 - By Dave Urbanski - LJUBLJANA, Slovenia
(TheBlaze/AP) - Slovenians rejected same-sex marriage by a large
margin in a referendum on Sunday, according to near-complete
results, in a victory for the conservatives backed by the Catholic
Church in the ex-communist EU nation. The results released by
authorities show 63.5 percent voted against a bill that defines
marriage as a union of two adults, while 36.5 percent were in
favor. Slovenias left-leaning Parliament introduced marriage
equality in March, but opponents pushed through a popular vote
on the issue. The Children Are At Stake group has
collected 40,000 signatures to challenge the changes before any
gay couples were able to marry.
- This result presents a victory for our children,
said Ales Primc, the groups leader. Ljudmila Novak, from
New Slovenia, described the outcome as a clear defeat
of the leftist government, which backed the changes. Supporters
of same-sex marriage have called for Slovenia to join Western
European nations that have allowed more gay rights. Conservatives
and the right-wing opposition have campaigned on traditional
family values, arguing that marriage equality paves the way for
gay and lesbian couples to adopt children. Although Slovenia
is considered to be among the most liberal of the ex-communist
nations, gay rights remain a contentious topic in the predominantly
Roman Catholic nation of 2 million. Voters in the former Yugoslav
republic rejected granting more rights to gay couples in a referendum
in 2012. Violeta Tomic, a lawmaker from the United Left party
which initially put forward the bill, said referendum results
presented a temporary setback only.

for students on campus even more unsafe [because] Islamophobia
and racism fueled through that [day] are alive and well.
Algadi also reportedly asked: When will we start having

something terrible? The resolution for the annual ceremony
ultimately failed with a vote of 36 to 23, and three abstentions.
Graham found the justification for the no-go vote curious.

The leaks in the new books are seen as part of a bitter internal
struggle between the reformers and the old guard. This week,

Gianluigi Nuzzi makes some startling allegations, including a
report that Vatican postulators officials
who promote sainthood causes bring in hundreds of thousands
of euros in donations for their causes but are subject to no
oversight as to how the money is spent.
In his book Merchants in the Temple, obtained Tuesday
by The Associated Press two days ahead of publication, Nuzzi
estimates the average price tag for a beatification cause at
around 500,000 euros ($550,000) and some have gone as
high as 750,000 euros ($822,000). Causes of saintly candidates

SOROS-BACKED GROUP LAUNCHES BID TO KEEP SYRIAN REFUGEES FLOWING
November 20, 2015 - By Christopher C. Hull - A group masquerading
as conservative but backed by left-wing foundations including
billionaire George Soross Foundation to Promote Open Society
(FPOS) has launched an online advertising campaign in defense
of bringing Syrian refugees to the United States. The banner
ads bear tag lines like, Support freedom, not fear,
and, America is better when we welcome refugees.
They lead to a microsite located at Americaisbetter.org with
Old Glory-clothed, American flag-waving young people, with a
light-skinned blonde leading the way for others who appear to
be ethnic minorities partially or fully obscured behind her.
- The site in turn quotes conservative icon former president
Ronald Reagan, saying, America is better when we embrace
President Reagans shining city
people of all kinds, living in harmony and peace.
- I noticed this at our local Catholic church.. It was very
early (7:45 AM) on a Saturday when I drove by the church and
wondered why the parking lot was loaded with cars, the streets
were full and even the front and back school parking lot was
cram packed and the playground, too. Mexicans and their children
were filing into the school building.. wath?? Baptism this early??
As I drove around the back end (on my way to a garage sale) I
noticed several Doctors getting out of cars. Then it dawned on
me. This is a Free Clinic. The sale was across the street and
the lady was miffed because few could park to get to her sale.
She went on to tell me how this goes on about once a month and
it is packed all day long with cars full of immigrants and hundreds
upon hundreds of babies. She said the catholic church sponsors
them, feeds them and caters to them with finding jobs, resources,
FREE healthcare, FREE food and more. Not one white was there,
not one black. Just Mexicans.

must change or it will die.
- Is the Church Dying?
- 1. First, If the Church wishes to have any kind of viable
future, it must stop pretending the Bible is an infallible book
written by God and dictated through Divinely-inspired and inerrant
writers. There is no such thing as an infallible Bible, just
as there is no such thing as an infallible Koran. Which many
fundamentalist Muslims believe. This matter was settled by scripture
scholarship decades ago. Frankly, I, for one, am so over this
religious nonsense perpetrated still on the masses of uninformed
but sincere religious people by nothing less than ignorant Biblicists
and even dishonest religious leaders. It's time religious people
grow up and stop reading the Bible, if they read it at all, like
it were a rule book dropped out of the sky by God herself. Furthermore,
the Bible is not a book of magic which, when quoted in "the
name of Jesus" suddenly becomes a magicians wand enabling
to pull whatever proverbial rabbit you need from a hat.
- Is the Church Dying?
- 2. Second, the Church will have to end its losing war with
science, biology, and anthropology, if it expects to have any
kind of reputable future.
- These are not the Church's enemies. You might not like what
Darwin taught. But the only reason any Christian would not is
because Darwin all but ruined our little creation myth in Genesis
we had been telling ourselves for centuries about the origins
of the universe. Religious people wage a losing war with what
Darwin and the entire scientific community world wide knows and
accepts today - and, that is, that human beings are like everything
else in this universe, an evolving species.
- Does that mean Darwin got it all right? Of course not. No
more so than you and I always get everything right.
- But the Church does itself no favors by pretending he was
wrong about everything.
- In fact, it makes the Church the laughingstock of the world
when religious leaders in the Church seek to perpetuate the myth
that there was a time in history when humans were perfect or
created in perfection from which they fell. This is the myth
we told ourselves for a long, long time.
- Then, Darwin appeared. Very often, I get emails from strangers
who have read one of the many things I've written over the years
for the Huffington Post on the fate of the Church in America.
I got another email again yesterday. This time, the inquirer,
himself a writer himself for a major religious publication, wanted
to know whether I thought the Church in all its communal expressions
would have a brighter and more hopeful future than it appears
POPE SAYS CHURCH DOORS MUST STAY OPEN DESPITE TERROR FEARS
November 17, 2015 - AFP - Vatican City (AFP) - Pope Francis said
Wednesday that the doors of Catholic churches around the world
must remain open, despite increased security fears in the aftermath
of the Paris attacks. "Please, no armoured doors in the
Church, everything open," the 78-year-old pontiff told pilgrims
in St Peter's square, Italy's AGI news agency reported. "There
are places in the world where doors should not be locked with
a key. There are still some but there are also many where armoured
doors have become the norm. "We must not surrender to the
idea that we must apply this way of thinking to every aspect
of our lives, ..." Francis said.
"To do so to the Church would be terrible." The pope
did not explicitly refer to last week's attacks on Paris, which
he has condemned as "inhuman".
POPE FRANCIS CLAIMS PARIS ATTACKS "BLASPHEMY" &
PART OF WORLD WAR III
- Jesuit Pope talking war? Of Course He Is...
By Kev Baker - Pope Francis has spoken about the Paris attacks
and claimed they are a piece of what he calls a piecemeal
World War III. Then today he spoke again about the attacks,
referring to them as blasphemy Even today,
after the second failure of another world war, perhaps one can
speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres,
destruction, His words came at a time of heightened tensions
around the world and his words will not be seen as comforting
for many of the 1.2 billion Catholics around the world. A piecemeal
World War III may have already begun with the current spate of
crimes, massacres and destruction, Pope Francis has warned. He
was speaking during a visit to Italys largest military
cemetery, where he was commemorating the centenary of World War
I. War is madness, the Pope said at a memorial to
100,000 Italian soldiers at Redipuglia cemetery near Slovenia.
The Argentine Pope has often condemned the idea of war in Gods
name. Only last month, Pope Francis said the international community
would be justified in using force to stop what he called unjust
aggression by Islamic State militants, who have killed
or displaced thousands of people in Iraq and Syria, including
many Christians, the BBCs David Willey reports. In Saturdays
homily, standing at the altar beneath Italys fascist-era
Redipuglia memorial where 100,000 Italian soldiers killed
during WWI are buried, 60,000 of them unnamed, the Pope paid
tribute to the victims of all wars. Humanity needs to weep,
and this is the time to weep, he said. - Continued: http://kevbakershow.com/pope-francis-ww3/#sthash.R2bfjVfn.dpbs
- NEW POPE TAKES ON 8 OFFICIAL TITLES, BUT 'POPE' IS NOT ONE
Pope's official title a résumé writer's nightmare
By Scott Ross - Pope Francis I will be taking on the awesome
responsibility of leading a church with more than 1 billion followers,
a job that comes with eight official titles none of them
"Pope." To hear Dr. Terrence W. Tilley, Chair of the
Theology Department at Fordham University, tell it, calling the
pope "pope" is a little like calling your CEO "chief."
"'Pope' comes from the Italian 'papa,'" explains Tilley.
"It's actually a colloquial term rather than a formal term.
In America, we often use the phrase, especially the bishops
'Holy Father,' 'Sancta Papa,' which is where you get 'Pope.'"
The pope's proper title, according to the Vatican's website,
is Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince
of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Primate
of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province,
Sovereign of the State of Vatican City, Servant of the Servants
of God. Bishop of Rome
"Bishop" comes from the Greek "episcopas,"
meaning "overseer," and Rome of course being HQ for
the Catholic Church. The term "pope," or "papa,"
didnt emerge until later. St. Peter is considered by many
to be the first Bishop of Rome, but Father Raymond Schroth of
America Magazine says there is a fair amount of doubt surrounding
that claim. "Raymond Brown was the best scripture scholar
we had, and he's written several things on this. (He) said it
would be a mistake to say that Peter was the first pope, as if
he were the founder of the church. That's an exaggeration. The
evidence for Peter's presence in Rome is not airtight
that's a nice way of putting it. They have a tomb under St. Peter's
Basilica in Rome, where it's believed that St. Peter is buried.
But, you know, it took 'em a long time to find the grave,"
says Schroth with a laugh.

Chief bridge maker
- Some additional info on some of the names:
- Pontifix Maximus is a papal title meaning in Latin chief
bridge maker between earth and heaven. However, Jesus (Yashiya)Christ
is the only One who can claim this title because no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6. This was
a title of the Roman Caesars and of the Roman Emperors of paganism.
- Holy Father is a title the Pope claims for himself. However,
this title occurs only once in the Bible, and used when Jesus
(Yashiya) addresses His Heavenly Father in John 17:11 in His
great prayer before His betrayal, arrest and crucifixion.
- Father is a title that every Roman Catholic priest claims
for himself and expects to be called. Jesus (Yashiya) warns in
Matthew 23:9 Call no man your father upon the earth: for
one is your father which is in heaven. The catholic priest
is not regarded in Scripture to be anyones spiritual father.
Monsignor This means my Lord, and this clearly is
a title belonging only to God, the Lord Jesus (Yashiya) Christ.
- Reverend is a title of many Roman Catholic priests and Protestant
ministers. This is also a title for God in Psalms 111:9 Holy
and Reverend is his name. It is blasphemy for any man to
take to himself a title of God.
- Mother of God Title given to Mary which
denotes blasphemy, as it diverts worship to Mary. Mary was the
mother of Jesus (Yashiya) Christs humanity, but not the
mother of Jesus (Yashiya) Christs divinity. https://ahayahyashiyaisraelitesunite.wordpress.com/posts/titles-of-pope-that-confirm-he-stands-as-antichrist/
- "ISLAM IN A NUTSHELL" [MUST READ This article is
the reason for the Muslim invasion (refugees) world wide]
This, not the Chinese nor the Russians, represents the greatest
threat to the world and might be the fulfillment of the book
of Revelation in the Holy Bible.
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: 'Slavery, Terrorism and
Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat.'
Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form,
it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious,
legal, political, economic, social, and military components.
The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
- Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in
a country to agitate for their religious privileges.
- When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse
societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges,
some of the other components tend to creep in as well.
- Here's how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in
any given country, they will be for the most part, be regarded
as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens.
This is the case in:
- United States -- Muslim 0.6%
Australia -- Muslim 1.5%
Canada -- Muslim 1.9%
China -- Muslim 1.8%
Italy -- Muslim 1.5%
Norway -- Muslim 1.8%
- At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic
minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting
from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in:
- Denmark -- Muslim 2%
Germany -- Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7%
Spain -- Muslim 4%
Thailand -- Muslim 4.6%
- From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion
to their percentage of the population. For example, they will
push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards)
food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims They
will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal
on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply.
This is occurring in:
- France -- Muslim 8%
Philippines -- Muslim 5%
Sweden -- Muslim 5%
Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8%
- At this point, they will work to get the ruling government
to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under
Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to
establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims approach
10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a
means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are
already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam
and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam ,
with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such
tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in:
- Guyana -- Muslim 10%
India -- Muslim 13.4%
Israel -- Muslim 16%
Kenya -- Muslim 10%
Russia -- Muslim 15%
- After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting,
jihad, militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings
of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
- Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
- At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic
terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia -- Muslim 40%
Chad -- Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7%
- From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers
of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic
ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and
Jizya, the tax placed on infidels ... http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=bdd_1349303243
- AFTER PARIS, POPE FRANCIS TELLS CHRISTIANS TO BE READY FOR
THE END OF THE WORLD
- November 15, 2015 - By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. - Two days
after the horrendous jihadist attacks in Paris, Pope Francis
preached about the end times, encouraging his hearers
to be vigilant and ready at any moment to meet God face to face.
In his Angelus message Sunday, the Pope invited the ten thousand
pilgrims gathered in Saint Peters Square to think about
their death, the day they will meet God and give an accounting
for their life. The Pope also explicitly addressed the Paris
carnage, expressing his deep sorrow for the terrorist attacks
that bloodied France late on Friday, causing many casualties.
Along with offering his condolences to the victims and their
families, Francis condemned the massacre as an unspeakable
affront to human dignity. Such barbarity leaves us
shocked and we wonder how the human heart can conceive and carry
out such horrible events, which have shaken not only France but
the whole world, he said.
- Francis unequivocally recognized the Islamist ideology behind
the attacks, denouncing the use of Gods name to justify
the brutal attacks as blasphemy.
- Commenting on Sundays Scripture readings, the Pope
said that Jesus preaching about the end of the world contains
apocalyptic elements, like war, famine, and cosmic catastrophes.
In those days, Francis repeated, the sun will
be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars
will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will
be shaken. These signs are not the most important things,
however, the Pope insisted. Our final goal is the meeting
with the resurrected Lord. The most important thing is
not knowing when the end will come, but being ready for it when
it does, he said.
- We are called to live the present, Francis said,
but always ready to meet God whenever he may call.
POPE FRANCIS STUMBLED IN CHURCH AGAIN
November 10, 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vN8neJzmGlw
POPE PONDERS PAGANISM - FRANCIS PROMOTES GAIA
Not since the rule of Emperor Constantine, during the Roman Warm
Era, have pagan gods been [knowingly] tolerated in Rome.
- Before Constantine, Romans [like the Hindus] worshipped 12
main gods including Apollo (the Sun), Diana (the Moon), Flora
(the plants), Uranus (the sky), Ceres (the crops), Gaia (the
Earth) and of course Bacchus (wine), Venus (love) and Mars (war).
Some of these gods demanded tribute and sacrifice.
- Christianity, the worship of one forgiving God, slowly absorbed
or eliminated its pagan rivals. The Popes in Rome came to lead
a Catholic empire of [nominal] Christians. In modern times, the
old Greek/Roman goddess, Gaia, has been resurrected by the world
- Pope Francis seems to seek an alliance with the nature worshippers.
Unfortunately the Green wolf will never lie down with Christian
- Christians promote care for humanity especially the weak
and the poor. The Gaia worshippers have subordinated humans to
"nature" and their attitude to other humans ranges
from contempt to deep hatred. Under their extremist Agenda 21,
the priests of Gaia would sacrifice humans by restricting their
access to land, oceans, food, minerals and energy, and then concentrate
the survivors in soul-destroying dormitory cities and food factories.
Greens want all descendants of Adam and Eve expelled from our
Gardens of Eden.
- Christians generally value individual freedom and private
property. The Green priesthood will not rest until there is a
world government in which there is no private property and all
humans are numbered, controlled and planned. They are using climate
alarmism to achieve these goals. Full story: NOTHING must be
signed in Paris We Must Defend Our Access to Energy - it is threatened
in Paris. Every living thing needs access to energy?food, light
and warmth. The UN is plotting to limit our access to energy.
- Comment: Bloomberg New Energy Finance produces an annual
guide to investment in renewables in its Global Trends in Clean
Energy Investment (October 2015). Subtitled, "Annual Clean
Energy Investment Overview," it contains several charts
that show quarterly trends in clean energy investment and funds
in circulation, as well as clean energy indices.
- One revealing chart is headed, "New Investment in Clean
Energy in Europe." It covers the period from the beginning
of 2004 to the third quarter of 2015 and shows that new investment
in clean energy peaked at $US34.1 billion in the second quarter
of 2011 and since then has fallen steadily and dramatically.
- Clean energy investment in Europe in the latest quarter had
fallen to $US5.8 billion, the lowest level since 2004. If current
trends continue, it will continue to fall to levels not seen
since the early years of the last decade. Trends in the US are
also interesting. US investment in clean energy peaked in the
third quarter of 2011 and have since fallen 27 per cent.
- The only reason investment in clean energy has remained roughly
steady over the past four years is because of a dramatic increase
in China, the world's largest manufacturer of solar panels and
wind turbines. Most of China's production is exported. While
Western nations have committed to substantial emissions cuts
by 2020, China has said it will continue to increase emissions
until 2030. China is now the world's largest CO2 emitter.
- The area of manufacturing that has seen the most dramatic
rise in recent years is power storage, effectively battery technology,
for use in a range of devices from submarines, to cars to smartphones.
The problem with this is that batteries simply store electricity
for later use, energy that often comes from coal-fired power
- YES TO THE REDISCOVERY OF THE JEWISH ROOTS OF CHRISTIANITY.
NO TO ANTI-SEMITISM
October 28, 2015 - Baron David de Rothschild, the chairman of
World Jewish Congress, along with 150 leaders of world Jewry
flew to Rome on October 27, 2015 to discuss the on-going Al-Aqsa
crisis, Russian airstrikes in Syria, Iran's threat to Israel,
and counter delegitimization of Israel, and of course the pro-Israel
Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) with the help of the
Vatican. Francis I Next day, the group joined Pope Francis at
St. Peter's Square to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Nostra
Aetate declaration, [exonerating Jewish culpability in Jesus'
execution, allegedly] drafted by [Jewish Jesuit the late Malachi
Martin [for] the Second Vatican Council and promulgated by the
Marrano Jew Pope Paul VI on October 28, 1965. The document forbids
the good Christians from believing several dozens of anti-Jewish
parables mentioned in the New Testament.
- The WJC's conference in Rome and meeting with pope have become
an annual ritual. In addition, there is the International Catholic-Jewish
Liaison Committee, which has been meeting in Rome on annual basis
since 1984. Since the establishment of the Zionist entity in
Palestine, every pope has visited the entity as an 'obligatory'
- No pope has ever visited Iran after the 1979 Islamic Revolution
though the country has more Christians than Israel. In 1999,
Iran's president Ayatullah Muhammad Khatami met Pope John Paul
II in the Vatican. The Pope broke protocol by receiving the Iranian
cleric at the Holy Door of his Papal Chamber. Next month, Iranian
president Sheikh Hassan Rouhani is scheduled to visit Italy on
the Italian president's invitation. During his 2-day visit, Rouhani
will meet Pope Francis. It would be interesting to see, how far
Francis discusses Jewish "concerns" with Rouhani. [...]
Organized Jewry declared Francis being among the top 50 American
Jewish leaders in 2013. Francis, like his predecessor Benedict
XVI, a Zionist double agent, believes Holocaust denial is 'intolerable'.
However, Francis went further to please his Zionist masters by
declaring, Inside every Christian is a Jew. Baron David de Rothschild
(worth $10 billion) is a French citizen but lives in Israel.

- VATICAN ARRESTS 2 IN CONNECTION WITH LEAKED DOCUMENTS
November 2, 2015 - BY ELISABETTA POVOLEDO - ROME The Vatican
announced Monday that two members of a commission set up by Pope
Francis to study financial operations at the Holy See had been
arrested on suspicion of leaking confidential documents to journalists.
The arrests added to the intrigue and infighting that appear
to be intensifying around Francis, whose push to liberalize certain
aspects of the Roman Catholic Church and to shake up the Vaticans
administrative body, or Curia, has met with stiff resistance
from traditionalists and vested interests inside the Vatican
and beyond. The arrests came days before the publication of two
books Avarizia, or Avarice, by
Emiliano Fittipaldi, and Merchants in the Temple,
by Gianluigi Nuzzi purporting to raise the lid on old
and new scandals at the Vatican.
Both books claim to offer glimpses of the turmoil surrounding
Francis as he pursues his reforms of Vatican finances, the operations
of the Curia and the Vatican bank. Those institutions had long
been plagued by scandal and corruption that contributed to the
resignation in 2013 of Francis predecessor, Pope Benedict
XVI, the first pope to step down in nearly 600 years. The problems
were bequeathed to Francis, who shortly after his election set
up a commission to examine the Vaticans financial holdings
and economic structures. The two people arrested Msgr.
Lucio Ángel Vallejo Balda and Francesca Chaouqui, a laywoman
were members of that commission, which was dissolved last
year after completing its mandate. Monsignor Vallejo Balda holds
one of the top posts at the Vaticans prefecture for economic
affairs. Ms. Chaouqui is a public relations specialist. They
were taken into custody by the Vatican police over the weekend,
the Vatican said in a statement. Ms. Chaouqui was released Monday
after she agreed to cooperate with the investigation, the Vatican

spoke for the first time in an exclusive interview with ABC News
20/20 about what her life was like inside the Church
of Scientology, as well as how Tom Cruise and the backlash she
faced from the Church after his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes
were factors in her breaking with the Church. The former King
of Queens star, who publicly severed ties with the Church
in 2013, is the most high-profile celebrity to leave Scientology
and go public with her criticisms. She spoke with 20/20
about her new memoir, Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood

Church she served for 30 years. I know what my former Church--
how they deal with people who tell their story, Remini
told 20/20. And so I wanted to be the one to
say it. This week, members of the Church of Scientology
delivered multiple documents and emails and made numerous phone
calls to ABC News containing highly critical statements about
Leah Remini, calling her a liar, self-absorbed, rude and

- UN OFFICIAL WARNS OF 'AMPUTATION' OF CHRISTIANITY'S DNA IN
THE MIDDLE EAST
October 28, 2015 - By Lauretta Brown - A former Portuguese prime
minister, António Guterres was elected by the UN General
Assembly to become the 10th United Nations High Commissioner
for Refugees in June 2005. (CNSNews.com) The United Nations
High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres expressed
concern Tuesday over the exodus of Christians in the Middle East
because of the conflict in Syria and Iraq. Guterres said that
speaking as a Christian, he was worried about
whats happening in the Middle East. Guterres referenced
the Middle Eastern origins of Christianity and said a religious
cleansing of Christians from that part of the world would be
an amputation in the DNA of Christianity and in the DNA
of the Middle East. Allow me to speak here also as
a Christian, which I probably shouldnt, Guterres
said at a discussion of the Syrian refugee crisis at the National
Press Club in Washington, D.C. I must say that Im
worried about whats happening in the Middle East.
- People in my country, and of course I cannot mention
the United States because its a young nation except for
the populations that were here already long ago, but in my country
(Portugal), people were still worshipping the trees and the rivers;
and the Christians in the Middle East, in Alexandria, in Antioch,
they were discussing whether the Holy Ghost
was coming from the Father or from the Father and the Son,
I mean that is where Christianity was born, and to see
these communities at the risk of being eradicated from that area
is something I consider with horror. So independently of the
importance of the resettlement program, I think that the international
community must do everything possible to create the conditions
for these communities to be able not to be religiously cleansed,
I mean from that part of the world that would be to really do
an amputation in the DNA of Christianity and in the DNA of the
- This has nothing to do with the support to individuals
that need resettlement, but we need also to mobilize the efforts
of the international community in order to preserve those communities
that are in the very origin of Christianity as Christianity exists
today, Guterres concluded.
- Pope Francis also expressed concern over the exodus of Christians
from the Middle East in a meeting Monday with Chaldean Catholic
bishops from the region.

- UNESCO DECLARES TOMB OF PATRIARCHS AND RACHEL'S TOMB MUSLIM
October 21, 2015 - (ARUTZ SHEVA)UNESCO (the United Nations
Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) passed a
resolution Wednesday listing the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron
and Rachel's Tomb in Bethlehem as Muslim sites.
- The resolution - which passed with 26 in favor, six voted
against, and 25 abstentionscondemned Israel for archaeological
excavations in the Old City of Jerusalem and particularly near
the Temple Mount.
- An initial draft of the resolution had also called for the
Kotel (Western Wall) to be listed as an Islamic site - or more
specifically as an "extension of the Al Aqsa Mosque"
- but that detail was hastily withdrawn after widespread condemnation,
including from UNESCO's own Director-General.
- The revised draft also toned-down some of the more blatant
anti-Israel language in the original, including referring to
Jerusalem as the "occupied capital of Palestine."
- POPE FRANCIS I GREATLY BLASPHEMES JESUS CHRIST!
- October 21, 2015 - The Pope's blasphemy against our Lord
and Savior is exactly the type of speaking astonishing blasphemy
foretold of Antichrist.
- NEWS BRIEF: "The Pope's Jesus Was A Failure", by
Ed Decker, Saints Alive in Jesus, email sent 10/20/2015 -
- "When he spoke at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York,
he shocked the Christian world. In his address on 'Gratitude
and hard work: these are two pillars of the spiritual life which
I have wanted to share with you this evening'."
- "However, as he talked about a life of hard work, suffering
and failure, [the life of the average Catholic in much of the
world, he said this about Jesus and the cross."
- " 'And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail
and produce no fruit, we need to remember that we are followers
of Jesus ... and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure,
the failure of the cross'." Can you believe this unbelievable
blasphemy against Jesus, the Lord of Lords?
- Pope Francis I believes -- because the Catholic Church teaches
-- that Jesus' blood sacrifice on the cross was a "failure"!
Because Catholicism does not teach much genuine Biblical doctrine
and they do not understand "Free Salvation by Faith in Jesus'
Sacrifice on the Cross", they view Jesus' death on the cross
as a failure.
- They sadly have no concept that Jesus came to this world
expressly to die on the cross!! That was Jesus' goal! Consider
some pertinent passages:
- 1) John 3:13-15 -- "...there is One who came down from
heaven, the Son of Man [Himself whose home is in heaven]. Just
as Moses lifted up the bronze serpent in the desert on a pole,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up on the cross, so that whoever
believes will in Him have eternal life [after physical death,
and will actually live forever]." (Amplified Bible Commentary)
Did you catch that statement from Jesus' lips? "so must
the Son of Man be lifted up on the cross" for the express
purpose of saving men's souls from eternal Hell.
- 2) John 17:1 -- " These words spake Jesus, and lifted
up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify
thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee...."
- Jesus knew the very hour He was supposed to die and here
he recognizes that His death on the cross will occur precisely
as He and the Father had planned it to occur in Eternity Past.
Jesus noted that His death on the cross will bring much glory
to both the Son and the Father.
- 3) John 19:10-11 -- "Then saith Pilate unto him, 'Speakest
thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify
thee, and have power to release thee?' Jesus answered, 'Thou
couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given
thee from above'."
- 4) Hebrews 9:22 -- "... almost all things are by the
law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission."
- Time and time again, the New Testament writings shout the
reality that the plan in Eternity Past was that the Son of Man
would leave His throne in glory, come to earth to live a sinless
life and to die on the cross. His bloody sacrifice is the basis
for our salvation from sin and from Hell.
- In other words, Jesus' death on the cross was a supreme triumph
over sin, sorrow and Satan!
