- I will utterly consume all things from off
the land, saith the LORD. I will consume man and beast; I will
consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and
the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and
- I will cut off man from off the land, saith
the LORD. I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon
all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and
- I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this
place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests; And them
that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them
that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by Malcham;
And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have
not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.
- Hold thy peace at the presence
of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for
the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests. And
it shall come to pass in the day of the LORD'S sacrifice, that
- I will punish the princes, and the king's
children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.
In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the
threshold, which fill their masters' houses with violence and
- And it shall come to pass
in that day, saith the LORD, that there shall be the noise of
a cry from the fish gate, and an howling from the second, and
a great crashing from the hills.
- Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh,
for all the merchant people are cut down; all they that bear
silver are cut off. And it shall come to pass at that time, that
- I will search Jerusalem with candles, and
punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their
heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil. Therefore
their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a desolation:
they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they
shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.
- The great day of the LORD
is near, it is near,
and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the
mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath,
a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation,
a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and
against the high towers.
- And I will bring distress
upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they
have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured
out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver
nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the
LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire
of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of
all them that dwell in the land.
- We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is
the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who
spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to
prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness
as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me." We

- 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 are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
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.
- Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have
an email group that gets information when we upload new information
and newsletters whenever it is possible time wise. We love the
Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God
has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior,

and harmless as doves.

Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need
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.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore
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"

- Head's Up! Start of the Shemitah Year Begins Friday, March
- PG 14 ...Not September of 2014 as Jonathan Cahn stated! Friday,
March 20, will usher in the "Year of RELEASE" and be
kicked off with a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE! Some of you have no idea
what I am talking about but there are some here that will see
this and realize just how VERY significant this information is!
To you fellow Watchers, I SALUTE YOU!
- Here is the breakdown...God told Moses in Exodus 12 that
the start of the months would begin on Nisan 1 and that Passover
would begin 15 days later. The Hebrew tradition of calling the
Feast of Yom Teruah the "New Year" is NOT scriptural
but based on Babylonian pagan traditions during their time of
captivity there. If Friday, Nisan 1 on Hebrew calendar, March
20 on Gregorian, is the start of the New Year then it is also
the start of the Shemitah year and we need to be paying very
close attention to what takes place on that day!
- It is NO COINCIDENCE that CERN chose this week to fire up
their "Ouroboros" (look it up if you don't know what
this is). Those playing for the dark side know EXACTLY what they
are doing in choosing this week and now, I think I do, too! The
start of the Shemitah signifies the "Year of Release"
on God's calendar (of debt, of the land, etc.) but it is quite
possible that the players for His enemy's team have another "release"
in mind. All we can do is watch! If God lifts His Restrainer
(2 Thessalonians 2:6) at the start of the Shemitah then CERN
may well be allowed to succeed in opening the portal. (Say what
you want but those with discernment know this is EXACTLY what
they are attempting to do!)
- "If the year was established in Exodus 12, and there
is no other evidence to support 1 Tishri as a new year (of any
kind), then the Shemitah year must begin on 1 Nisan. That means
the Shemitah year begins in March 2015, not Sept. 2014 (as Cahn
- LOVE NOT THE WORLD
- 1 John 2:15-20 Love not the world, neither the things
that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of
the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust
of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life,
is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth
away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God
abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as
ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there
many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last
time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if
they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with
us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that
they were not all of us. But ye have an unction from the Holy
One, and ye know all things. (KJV)
- 1 John 2:21-25 I have not written unto you because ye
know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is
of the truth. Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus
is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father
and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the
Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the
beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall
remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the
Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even
eternal life. (KJV)
- 1 John 4:1-5 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try
the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets
are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God:
Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the
flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus
Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that
spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should
come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God,
little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he
that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the
world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth
- 2 John 1:7-10 For many deceivers are entered into the
world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves,
that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that
we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth
not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth
in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive
him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: (KJV)
- DOCTORS LOST HOPE AFTER PERFORMING CPR ON THIS TEEN FOR 27
- When his mother started praying loudly something happened
that they're calling a MIRACLE
Feb. 5, 2015 - Billy Hallowell - Its a startling medical
recovery that one doctor called a bonafide miracle,
with another emergency room physician crediting the holy
spirit with breathing life back into a teenager who flat-lined
and was reportedly dead for 45 minutes after falling through
ice and spending 15 minutes submerged in frigid water.[...] Sutterer,
who was on duty in the emergency room at SSM St. Joseph Hospital
West in St. Louis, recalled delivering the tragic news to Smiths
mother, Joyce Smith, KDSK-TV reported.
- But then something startling happened. Rather than give up
hope, she entered the hospital room and began praying loudly.
And while the mother doesnt remember her exact words, she
recalls imploring God to save her son. I remember [saying],
Holy God, please send your Holy Spirit to save my son.
I want my son, please save him, she said. At that
moment, the dire situation reportedly changed. Smith, whose heart
had stopped, apparently began beating again, with doctors announcing
that he now had a pulse something that they thought was
unlikely to happen.
- Sutterer was so shaken and moved by the experience that he
penned a letter about it, writing that Smiths heart
was jump started by the Holy Spirit listening to the request
of his praying mother.
- Another physician, Dr. Jeremy Garrett, helped Smith through
his recovery and later called the entire spectacle a bonafide
miracle. Smith opened his eyes just 48 hours after the
accident and began answering doctors questions. His recovery
has been so rapid ever since that even doctors are having a hard
time keeping up, according to KDSK-TV. Smiths father, John
Smith, said that the situation might seem confusing, but that
hes confident its miraculous. I know it doesnt
fit into our neat little box of today, but again, you cant
refute the clinical evidence, he told the outlet. The Smith
family is no stranger to faith, as they attend First Assembly
Church in St. Peters, Missouri, where parishioners have been
praying for the boys recovery since last months accident.
Many believe those prayers have worked, as Smith is poised to
go home in the next few days. Read more about his stunning story
- METEORITE STRIKES DOWN THIEF DURING ARMED ROBBERY
- February 23rd, 2015 - by Barbara Johnson - A burglary ended
in a very sudden and unexpected way yesterday, in Orange County,
when a gang member was killed by a falling meteorite debris while
he was holding three people at gunpoint in a Santa Ana residence.
- The criminal, Juan Pedro Sancho Jiménez, had just
broken into a house in the Eastside area of Santa Ana, when a
meteorite fragment weighting almost ½ pound pierced through
the roof of the residence and hit him on the top of the head.
The well-known gang member who had already spent eleven years
in jail for sexual assault and armed robbery, was killed almost
instantly as the meteorite passed through his skull, destroyed
his spine and continued its way through many of his vital organs.
Officers from the Orange County Sheriff Department arrived on
the site only a few minutes after the incident, but the assailant
was already dead. Continued: http://worldnewsdailyreport.com/meteorite-strikes-down-thief-during-armed-robbery/
- JESUS IS GOD!
- October 19, 2014 The Bible says in 2nd Timothy 2:15: Study
to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not
to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. This
verse instructs us to personally study the Bible diligently in
order to understand its contents. If we depend upon others
interpretations of the Bible rather than studying it for ourselves
we may be led astray or develop the wrong ideas. When we discover
a truth it can be found all throughout the Bible and we will
not have to search and force scriptures to say something that
fits our ideas or man's interpretation.This article is about
the deity or divinity of Jesus Christ. Although some refute Jesus
as being God the scriptural basis of his divinity or deity is
indisputable and can be found from Genesis to Revelation. The
simple fact that Jesus accepted worship alone and did not correct
or rebuke the worshipers speaks volumes: (Matthew 2:11; 14:33;
28:9, 17,Luke 24:52;John 9:38). He also said that I and
the Father are one (John 10:30) this statement enraged
the Jews because they instantly realized that he was claiming
to be God so they tried to stone him. The Jews went on to say
in verse 33 You, a mere man, claim to be God (John
10:33). Jesus was clearly declaring the fact that he and the
father are of the same nature and essence. Another clear example
is in John 8:58: here we read : Jesus declared, I
tell you the truth
before Abraham was born, I am!
God is called I AM. (When Moses had to face the people
God said to tell the people that I AM sent you).
The Jews that heard these words considered this blasphemy and
according to the Mosaic Law they attempted to stone him (Leviticus
- Now in order to better comprehend the divinity of Jesus Christ
a person has to carefully and prayerfully examine the entire
scriptures from Old to New Testament. After doing so they will
start to see the full picture rather than simply isolating certain
verses to support an opinion thereby becoming a human doctrine
based upon human reasoning rather than God's word alone. Always
let God's word be your guide and you will never be led astray.
It may require diligent study but it is after all the infallible
word of God (2nd Timothy 3:16).
- First of all we need to clearly understand that Jesus Christ
was both man and God. But unlike Adam who was formed from the
earth and became a living soul the second Adam Jesus Christ was
a life-giving spirit from heaven and conceived through the immaculate
conception of Mary. God was his father! Adam was never born instead
he was created a man that eventually sinned and through his disobedience
all are born into sin. But Jesus was conceived through the Holy
Spirit and in him there was no sin and because there was no sin
in him he could live a perfect sinless life and therefore offer
himself up upon the cross as our perfect substitute.
- As men we are created a little lower then the angels and
Jesus as a man was also created a little lower then the angels
- Hebrews 2:7-You made him a little lower than the angels, yet
you crowned him with glory" but as part of the Godhead he
is divine we can clearly see this as Paul warns the Colossians
not to follow the false doctrine of worshiping angels as some
people were instructing the Colossians to do. He was concerned
that they were turning away from the true gospel of our Lord
Jesus Christ. Paul emphatically said that Jesus is greater than
the angels thereby speaking of his divinity since we already
stated that as a man he was created a little lower then the angels.
Paul said - Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness
of the Godhead bodily.
- It is also crucial to realize that when we assert the deity
of Jesus Christ we are in no way denying the Father because the
Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three in one, not three separate
persons but three persons in one, God is one. Before the Son
of God took on human flesh and came to the earth. The Godhead
still existed in heaven. For the word came from heaven to fulfill
the role of messiah and save humanity. (John 1:1, 14). Jesus
said in John 8:23: You are from below; I am from above. You are
of this world; I am not of this world".
- Jesus also revealed his glory on the mount of transfiguration
in the book of Matthew. It overwhelmed the disciples so much
that they fell facedown to the ground but Jesus touched them
and told them not to be afraid Matthew 17-After six days Jesus
took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and
led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured
before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became
as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses
and Elijah, talking with Jesus (Matthew 17). And on the road
to Damascus it was the voice of Jesus who spoke from the sky
and said to Paul why are you so cruel to me? (Acts 9:4)
- After Jesus death Thomas doubted that Jesus was the
Messiah. Jesus had appeared to the other disciples and they told
Thomas all about it to no avail because Thomas continued to doubt.
However a week later Jesus appeared to Thomas and Thomas called
him God. Lets read John 20:19-28: On the evening of that
first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with
the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and
stood among them and said, Peace be with you! After
he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples
were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, Peace
be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.
And with that he breathed on them and said, Receive the
Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyones sins, their sins are
forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.
Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when
Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, We have seen
the Lord! But he said to them, Unless I see the nail
marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and
put my hand into his side, I will not believe. A week later
his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them.
Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them
and said, Peace be with you! Then he said to Thomas,
Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand
and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe. Thomas
said to him, My Lord and my God! We must realize
that Jesus did not correct this statement!
- And when Stephen was being stoned to death he asked Jesus
Christ to receive his spirit "As they stoned him, Stephen
prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. ... They went on
stoning Stephen as he called on the Lord and said, "Lord
Jesus, receive my spirit! (Acts 7:59).
- Now sadly when a person holds to a human doctrine they will
often cite particular verses and disregard the main theme or
central idea in scripture. An example of this kind of thinking
is displayed when individuals misquote 1 Corinthians 15:28 in
which it says "And when all things are subjected to Him,
then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected
all things to Him, that God may be all in all." This verse
merely emphasizes Jesus' messianic role as a perfect human saviour,
this role will ultimately be completed and then "God"
will be made "all in all" note it doesn't say the "father"
will be made "all in all". The Son of God as part of
the Godhead existed eternally and was made flesh to save humanity:
John 1:1, 14 - in verse one of John it says- "In the beginning
was the Word, & the Word was with God, and the Word was God"
and then further down in verse 14 it states "And the Word
was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory,
the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace
and truth". As a man Jesus was begotten or created but as
The Son of God he is eternal. He robed himself in human flesh
and submitted to the father as a perfect sinless man but this
in no way removes his divinity. In the same train of thought
we can see from the following verse how Jesus as a man was subject
to God but still possesses his Deity. 1 Corinthians 11:1-2: I
praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to
the teachings, just as I passed them on to you. Now I want you
to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head
of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God". This
verse does not say that God is the head of the Son of God rather
it continues the theme of Jesus being both man and God. And as
a man he was always subject to the father even to the point of
death on a cross.
- VISIONS OF HEAVEN
When someone mentions the word "joy" we think of blissful
moments of laughter and contentment. You know those times when
we feel lighter than a feather and filled with glee. These memories
are like treasures and they mean more to us than all of the money
in the world. Everyone has experiences like this and they are
- Well, Jesus came down from heaven, a glorious place of bliss.
John 3: 12-14 says : "If I told you earthly things and you
do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things"?
No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven:
the Son of Man".
- The Bible says "Jesus stripped himself of all kingly
authority and took on the form of a servant" to save us
from our sins (Phil 2:7). Now let's get back to the word "joy",
the Bible says that for the joy set before him he endured the
cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of
the throne of God.(Hebrews 12:2). It brought Jesus joy to know
that multitudes of people would be saved from eternal damnation
and now instead gain eternal life because Jesus sacrificed himself
upon the cross. And it was that very thought that he fixed his
eyes upon while dying on the cross.
- What a beautiful word joy is! Jesus said "If you keep
My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept
My Father's commandments and abide in His love."These things
I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your
joy may be made full."This is My commandment, that you love
one another, just as I have loved you. (John 15:10-12) What we
need to realize here is that Jesus is commanding us to love one
another and this sums up all of the commandments : A new commandment
I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you,
that ye also love one another (John 13-34). God is love! Jesus
went to the cross to demonstrate God love toward us.
- Can you imagine what is must have been like when Jesus was
in heaven? It is truly beyond the capability of our human minds
to comprehend such a thing. The apostle Paul caught a glimpse
of heaven and was truly unable to describe it ( 2nd Corinthians
12). The point to all of this is that God desires for us to have
joy on earth and a future joy that will be unlike anything on
this earth! Everyone's life has ups and downs but Jesus is there
with you every step of the way! As Christians we look upward
waiting for that wonderful reunion with Jesus.
- In God we move and have our being (Acts 17:28)! This means
that he lives in us every single day! As born-again Christians
the kingdom of heaven is actually within us? Why? Because God's
wonderful Holy Spirit now lives within us to empower us and strengthen
- If you feel down and that your Joy is lacking turn to God
today and he will give you a Joy that goes beyond all understanding.
God bless you!

- DYING WOMAN RESPONDS TO PRAYER AND LIVES
- March 16, 2015 - God is a healer! God can raise the dead
and Kadesha Jenkins is a woman that can testify to this fact!
Yesterday Kadesha made a facebook post that has over a million
views sharing about how she prayed for a woman that was near
death and was instantly brought back to life! Kadesha and her
sister were in a store called Sams when she heard a man cry out
for help. The man's wife was slumped over in her seat and lifeless.
Her lips were turning blue and she was getting cold. Kadesha
asked the man if she was a diabetic. The man said yes and had
administered peppermint to his wife so Kadesha held her mouth
up to ensure that she got the taste of it but the woman was not
- Kadesha then looked down and noticed that the woman seemed
to be having a bowel movement which seemed to indicate her body's
last function before death. But Kadesha said "God if I do
not know anything else, I know how to pray and I know what your
word says and your word says that you are a healer"! "You
said that you are a deliverer and you also said in this time
that we would be able to do greater works because greater is
he that is in me then he that is in the world". (Kadesha
was quoting 1 John 4:4)
- The young woman went on to say " I have God that abides
on the inside of me and I can do what you did Jesus". So
she wrapped her arms around the woman and began to fervently
pray. She began to call on God and kept saying "she will
live and not die, she will live and not die"! She said "you
will show signs and wonders, you are a miracle worker God"!
"And your going to show yourself mighty today God".
And immediately the woman began to open her eyes and the first
thing that came out of her mouth was "thank you Jesus"!
- This young Christian lady knows that she witnessed a miracle.
Many may claim otherwise but can they prove it? There have been
many recordings of God bringing people back from death. In the
Bible we read how Jesus brought Lazarus back from death. (John
- Jesus said "Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that
believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater
works than these shall he do; because I go unto my father".
- DNA EVIDENCE PROVES THERE IS A GOD
- Did you know that simple water molecules form ice crystals
that exhibit magnificent structure? We know them as snowflakes.
Each snowflake is unique and when viewed under a microscope they
reveal amazing design and creativity. And yet they fall to the
ground by the trillions!
- God said to Job hast thou entered into the treasures of the
snow? Or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail? (Job 38:22
) God was revealing something that would not be discovered by
science until much further down the road.Yes, God was making
it clear to Job that he is the almighty creator of everything!
- If you were to examine a snowflake that stayed intact under
a microscope you would be amazed at its design and common sense
would dictate that it had a magnificent creator. Well can you
imagine the ingenuity and creativity behind even larger and more
complex molecules such as DNA? DNA contains the living blue print
for life and is by far the most massive storage information system
known in the entire universe! The amount of information in just
the top of a pin would fill enough books to reach from earth
to the moon.
- DNA is so complex with its programming code and structures
that it is one of the most overwhelming evidences of God on the
planet because it testifies to an extremely intelligent creator.
- Scientist Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis says that
DNA clearly cries out Gods existence. DNA is like books of massive
information that make up our genes and is read from a language
system. And this complex language system or code is information
and scientists know that information is matter that no one has
ever seen before which testifies of an extremely intelligent
creator. Scientists say that we started out with one cell but
how does that one cell know how to create one hundred trillion
other cells in the human body? The answer is DNA.
- DNA is a three dimensional molecule that is self replicating.
Yes, the Lord has even created DNA to detect and correct replication
errors! There are special proteins called enzymes that monitor
our DNA second by second and minute by minute every day of our
lives. They maintain our DNA and perform any needed repairs at
any given moment in time. These sophisticated processes and capabilities
far exceed mans knowledge.
- Now scientists also know that there is a whole field of study
called informational science which studies how information originates
and how it is transmitted and so forth. One of the laws of this
science says that information never originates by itself in matter;
it never spontaneously comes about by itself. Every time scientists
track information it always comes from a mind. And since we have
creative information and DNA it tells us that it had to have
come from a superior mind. This information could not have come
from millions of years of mutations and natural selection that
would actually be unscientific and an impossibility; or for that
matter even go against common sense.
- Another amazing thing to consider is that DNA as complex
as it may be is simple compared to one cell. All life consists
of cells and each cell functions as a miniature city. When we
consider how a human being has hundreds of trillions of cells
we all should be in awe of our wonderful creator for we are fearfully
and wonderfully made! (Psalms 139) God bless!

- REVEREND FRANKLIN GRAHAM: ALL
OBAMA KNOWS IS ISLAM
- 2/17/2015 - This is something rarely seen broadcast on Fox
News. Reverend Franklin Graham unloaded on Obama's Islamic background
during a discussion with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. Rev. Graham
said Islam is all Obama knows. Partial transcript: The
president is ignoring the fact that these are Islamic extremists.
These are terrorists. And ISIS is a terrorist organization. And
they are bent on destroying the West. Theyve already said
they want the flag of Islam to fly over the White House. The
president, his entire life his whole influence has been Islam.
His mother has been married to a Muslim. His father is a Muslim.
Then she married a man from Indonesia. He was raised in Indonesia.
Went to Islamic schools. I assume she was a Muslim. So, his whole
life experiences have been surrounded by Islam. He only knows
Islam. And, hes given a pass to Islam. Hes refusing
to accept and understand the evil that is in front of him.
- Rev. Franklin Graham. An hour later Bill O'Reilly responded
to a viewer email asking how long it will take to call Obama
a closet Muslim. "I'm not really sure what a closet Muslim
is. If you're accusing the president of a belief in Islam. I
would be very interested in seeing the evidence for that."
- FRANKLIN GRAHAM DOES NOT HAVE NAMES BUT CLAIMS MUSLIMS HAVE
INFILTRATED U.S. GOVERNMENT AND "ARE ADVISING THE WHITE
- Graham made his charge during an interview Thursday with
Bill O-Reilly on Fox News.
- But he said the problem is not just the United States but
also "Western Europe. They have gotten into the halls of
power," he said.
- BOONE, N.C. (Christian Examiner)
- Graham told O'Reilly he could provide a list of names later,
but said "I do know they're there" and clarified that
these followers of Islam were not necessarily next to the president
whispering in his ear, but insisted they "are in the halls
and they are speaking to staffers and they are influencing."
- But Graham was careful also to reach out to Muslims who might
have been viewing the broadcast, prefacing his remarks with a
- "First, Bill, I think it's important for Muslims who
are watching this program know that we love them and pray for
them," he offered. "I want Muslims everywhere to know
that God loves them and that He sent His Son to this from Heaven
to earth, Jesus Christ, for them."
- Graham, who is a frequent guest on Fox News, is president
of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, founded by his
father, evangelist Billy Graham. He also is president of Samaritan's
Purse, an international Christian relief organization.

I get so sad, what does scripture say we are supposed to
be doing, visit those who are in prison (Matthew

WaterfordWhispersNews Thu, 30 Oct 2014 02:32 CET
Following yesterday's announcement that the theories behind both
the Big Bang Theory and evolution are real and that God is not
a 'magician with a magic wand', Pope Francis has issued a second
statement today admitting that there are things in the Bible
that even he thinks are pure guff.
- The popular Argentinian pontiff, who gained admirers with
his more lenient views on gay partnership earlier this year,
went on to state that there are some parts of the Bible that
even he, as God's representative on Earth, has to admit are pretty
- Speaking at his daily pre-mass sermon, Pope Francis shocked
listeners by reading passages from both Old and New Testaments
while making googly eyes and circling one finger around his temple.
- Citing key examples of Catholic dogma such as the immaculate
conception and the resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ as being "metaphors, at best", the 266th
pope began to giggle as he moved through chapter and verse of
the Bible, angering some of the more senior Cardinals who were
present. "Pope Francis may not be feeling that well at the
moment, is one possible suggestion as to why he is acting this
way," said Cardinal Serge Aguila, one of the Pope's closest
aides. "Otherwise there is no way he would be preaching
that the Bible isn't 100% accurate. The Pope is a grown man,
so why all of a sudden he has started to question the existence
of talking snakes and pillars of fire and seas parting and zombie
Jesus and the rest of it is beyond me". "It's important
for the Pope to get back on the same page as the 265 popes before
him, and continue to stress just how powerful God is, and the
punishment that awaits them if they stray from the word of God
in the slightest. Otherwise, we'll all be out of a job".

- MAJOR CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION IS JUST SEVEN VOTES AWAY FROM
MAKING A MONUMENTAL DECISION THAT SOME SAY WILL CAUSE ITS DEMISE
Mar. 10, 2015 - Billy Hallowell - Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.),
the nations largest Presbyterian denomination, is only
seven votes away from officially changing its definition of marriage
to include same-sex unions a move that could have major
ramifications for the mainline sect.
- This development comes less than a year after Presbyterian
Church (U.S.A.) voted at its General Assembly meeting in Detroit,
to officially embrace gay marriage, amending its Book of Order
to define matrimony from being between a man and a woman
to two people, traditionally a man and a woman.
- TheBlaze reported at the time that in order for the rule
to be officially adopted, a majority of the denominations
172 presbyteries would need to vote in favor within the subsequent
12 months. As it currently stands, Amendment 14-F the
provision to change the definition of marriage has been
embraced by 79 regional bodies, with just 37 standing in opposition,
the Christian Post reported.
HEARTBROKEN' PASTOR SAYS HE HEARD GOD CALLING' HIM
TO DEFEND GAYS - AND HE CLAIMS HIS CHURCH JUST PAID A MAJOR PRICE
- Feb. 18, 2015 - Billy Hallowell - a Christian denomination
has reportedly kicked an Oregon church out of its network over
its pastors support for same-sex relationships. Pastor
Adam Phillips, 35, claims that Christ Church Portland was booted
from the Evangelical Covenant Church less than two years after
the denomination pledged to support the new church with a gift
of $150,000 over a three year period, the Oregonian reported.
In a statement published on the churchs website, Phillips
claims that he was informed February 4 that the denomination
is terminating its relationship with Christ Church Portland,
though he said he remains ordained with the Evangelical Covenant
Church. Phillips, who said he is heartbroken over
the split, claims that the reason was rooted in his personal
convictions and advocacy for the full inclusion and participation
of LGBT Christians in the church at all levels of membership
and leadership, receiving the same call as any other Christian
would to discipleship and faith, community, fidelity in relationships.
While he believes in celibacy for those who are unmarried, Phillips
also contends that gays and lesbians can follow this same ethical
blueprint a dynamic that the denomination is theologically
- HOW HARRY POTTER CORRUPTS OUR CHILDREN
- HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATH THAT FOLLOWS
- Jim Costigan [...] And therein lurks the trouble. Its
proverbial : the best lies have the most truth; the most seductive
evil appears as beautiful good. And if intelligent Christian
parents who are careful about what they allow their children
to read and who know, however dimly, that magic means sorcery
a grave evil, a violation of the First Commandment, a
direct offense against God Himself if these parents are
not on their guard with the Harry Potter stories, then there
are reasons theyre in the dark. What reasons? Well, perhaps
we enjoy the novels ourselves, we get caught up in the adventure,
we come to love Harry and his friends, and our critical faculty
gets lulled to sleep. Or, confronted with the unprecedented success
of the series, their garnering of nearly every literary laurel
for childrens books, their endorsement by educators, publishers,
critics, media stars, clergymen that smiling mass of experts
we may doubt that our fears can be right, our objections
valid; we wonder if we are not overreacting.
- Lighten up, were told. Its
just fantasy, make-believe, like Grimms Fairy Tales. You
let your kids read Tolkien and Lewis, right? Wheres the
harm? Heres the harm:
Our heroes are sorcerers. The characters we admire spend seven
years studying, and a lifetime becoming proficient in, something
that is intrinsically and gravely evil sorcery. No room
for doubt here. Magic is good, Dark Magic bad. This is a false
dichotomy. In the real world, in Gods Eyes, all sorcery,
the manipulation of preternatural powers which means,
yes, demons is dark, is evil. White magic/black magic
opposition is propaganda sold us by the occultists themselves.
The end justifies the means. This should be a bright red flag
for American Christians. As we contracept for the good of our
marriages and kill babies and old people for wonderful long-range
goals, so Harry, Ron, and Hermione lie, cheat, steal, and harm
others so that someday Voldemort will be defeated. Muggles are
pathetic and/or despicable fools. Perfectly normal,
boring, law-abiding, square owners
of square houses Muggles (non-magical people),
as exemplified by the narrow-minded, hideous Dursleys and the
timid, inept Prime Minister, are nuisances or burdens to Harry
and company, pawns or targets to Voldemort. As a Christian is
by definition a Muggle, the message to our children is :
- Magic is fun, hip, exciting, and powerful; your old
religion is dull, dumb, dorky, and dead. Break the rules
and win; disobey and be rewarded. Instead of being expelled from
Hogwarts for disobeying Madam Hoochs order not to fly on
his broom, Harry is made Seeker for the Gryffindor Quidditch
team. This sets a pattern for the whole series repeated
reinforcement of the principle The end justifies the means. Our
heroes constantly gain victories, and even the approbation of
authority, by bending rules and breaking laws.
Babies may be chopped up and stewed or just
left to suffer. Check the treatment a Mandrake (a magical plant
described as a small, muddy, extremely ugly baby . . .)
receives from young witches and wizards in Professor Sprouts
herbology class (Yr 2, 91-94, 234); then take a look at how Harry,
safe and secure in the limbo of Kings Cross, responds first
with a desire to comfort, then with revulsion, then, finally,
with cold indifference to the sufferings of (what is apparently
all that is left of Voldemort after the final duel) .
. . a small, naked child, curled on the ground, its skin raw
and rough, flayed-looking, . . . shuddering under a seat where
it had been left, unwanted, stuffed out of sight, struggling
for breath (Yr 7, ch 35). This is horrific stuff, even
in the Culture of Death. Especially in the Culture of Death.
How about : Harry sites link to Satanism sites on the Net? Is
that scary enough?.
Theres more. I havent gotten into the vulgar language,
the gross conversations, and the sexual innuendo; there are the
erotically suggestive scenes (Myrtle visiting Harry in the bath);
there is the total absence of God (except as a name in casual
oaths); theres the approval of euthanasia (Snape dispatching
the ailing Dumbledore); theres the brutality of magical
pranks and this by the good guys; there, in superabundance,
are sick jokes about death and torture; theres the scatological
humor toilets and bathrooms feature as the locales of
a tediously disproportionate share of the action; theres
the blending of solid ethical principles with amoral sophistries;
there is, throughout the entire saga, the constant utilitarian
rationalization for immoral acts and that out of the mouths
not just of Deatheaters and quislings but of McGonagall and Dumbledore;
there is for these children the relatively easy access to restricted
books volumes in the Hogwarts Library with detailed
instructions on how to conjure murder, mayhem, and worse through
forbidden curses; Harrys world is an environment
of pervasive child abuse, from careless negligence to sadistic
torture, and beyond. Theres more.
And then theres more yet. But isnt this already more
than enough for us to say, I do not want my child reading
Harry Potter. Yeah, Harrys fun. Yeah, Harrys
unwholesome. I do love Joanne Kathleen. But her books are pernicious.
I have no reason to suspect her of malice. (Well, her outing
of Dumbledore was particularly creepy.) But, malicious or not,
her stories are corrupting children. The Harry Potter novels
are presented to us as an epic tale of the triumph of good over
evil. Against impossible odds, by prodigious labors and self-sacrifice,
the courageous young wizard conquers the evil dark lord. What
actually happens is the defeat of blatant, ugly, darker-than-black
evil by subtle, attractive, snow-white-looking evil. This is
the snare : grave and intolerable evil, sorcery, is at the core
of the entire saga. Evil and error are in the hearts, not just
of Voldemort, Bellatrix, and Grayback, but also, however unwittingly,
of Dumbledore, Molly, and Harry. Joanne Kathleen herself may
be an innocent (because of invincible ignorance), but the worldview
in her works is hardcore neopagan and exuberantly, aggressively
Wiccan and is therefore, whether she intends it or not,
anti-Christian. Its not just the fun its the
good, the virtue in Rowling and in her heroes, shining out and
obscuring all that evil and error underneath, that moves our
children to gobble down this fare with such gusto and delight.
Unhappily, they swallow the poison too. [email]

Published March 14, 2015 / EFE - Vatican City While celebrating
his second anniversary in the papacy this Friday, Pope Francis
announced a Jubilee Year focused on one the concepts he most
often preaches: mercy.
- The former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio made the revelation
during his sermon at a Lenten penitential service, where the
unexpected announcement won the applause of those attending the
ceremony at St. Peter's Basilica.
- Francis will dedicate the Jubilee to the virtue of mercy,
to which he has referred on multiple occasions and which is the
basis of the episcopal motto that he chose when he became a bishop:
"Miserando atque eligendo" (He looked at him with mercy
and He chose him).
- During his sermon he said that "no one can be excluded
from the mercy of God." The Argentine pontiff acknowledged
that "I have thought about how the Church can make clear
its mission of being a witness of mercy," and concluded
that "it's a journey that starts with a spiritual conversion.
For this reason I have decided to declare an Extraordinary Jubilee
that has the mercy of God at its center. It will be a Holy Year

POPE'S POPULARITY CONTINUES TO GROW IN U.S.
- Church News Notes, March 13, 2015 - Pope Francis' popularity
continues to grow in the United States, both among Catholics
and non-Catholics. According to a Pew Forum survey conducted
in February, the pope is viewed favorably by 90% of Catholics,
by 74% of mainline Protestants, and by 60% of evangelicals (March
5, 2015, PewForum.org). Even among the non-religious, 68% hold
a favorable opinion. Rome is at the heart of the "one world

- PARTING THE VEIL
Published on Mar 9, 2015 - BPEarthWatch.Com - On Saturday 7 March,
two of the LHC experiments saw proton beams for the first time
after a two-year stop. Beam 2 (anticlockwise) made it through
LHCb at 10.30 and Beam 1 (clockwise) passed through ALICE at
17.00. The two experiments were switched on to record so-called
splash events, particles emerging from the collision between
the proton beam and a block positioned to stop the beam. The
proton beams passed through three of the eight sectors of the
LHC machine slightly more than 10 km of the 27 km ring.
- The tests were a big a success on the one hand
because we made it successfully to Point 3 with Beam 1 and onto
the beam-dump block in Point 6 with Beam 2, and on the other
hand because we discovered many issues, which we can still fix
before we start commissioning with beam, said Verena Kain,
one of the two engineers in charge of LHC operations at the weekend.
An essential first step before a full restart, these injection
tests are now being followed by the final stages of the hardware
commissioning of the machine at the CERN Control Centre. Commissioning
with beam is scheduled to start in the week beginning 23 March.
- The new model put forward by a team headed by Christoffer
Petersson, a theoretical particle physicist from Chalmers University
of Technology in Sweden, suggests that the Higgs boson, discovered
by the LHC in 2012, might be responsible for the birth of dark
matter particles. According to this model, if supersymmetry is
real, the Higgs particle can disintegrate into a photon -- a
light carrying particle -- and a dark matter particle. Supersymmetry
predicts that there are more massive super partners
for every known particle, and is an extension of the Standard
Model of particle physics, which governs our understanding of
the quantum world. The Higgs boson, which is responsible for
imparting mass to all other particles, was the last missing piece
that completed the Standard Model. However, even the completed
version of this theory fails to incorporate gravity and explain
the origin and preponderance of dark matter in the universe.

When was Jesus Christ born? Sept 29 on 1st day of Feast of Tabernacles.
Our Heavenly Father's time according to the Hebrew and the Solar
calendar. It is not hard to go research Luke 1,2,3 to discover
the course of Abia, and then go back in the Old Testament to
discover there were 12 priest courses that rotated and took place
2 times a year (24 courses all together). From this research,
you'll discover that Jesus Christ was born on Sept 29 Roman calendar
or according to the Hebrew and Solar calendar, this would be
7th month Tishri on the 15th day, which is the beginning of Feast
of Tabernacles. Tabernacles means DWELLING PLACE.....God became

- TELEVANGELIST LAUNCHES FUNDRAISING PLEA FOR $65 MILLION PRIVATE
- Mar. 13, 2015 - Billy Hallowell A well-known televangelist
is attempting to raise $60 million for the purchase of one of
the most coveted private jets on the market one that he
and his ministry will use to continue to spread the gospel
of grace around the world.
- Pastor Creflo Dollar, founder of World Changers Church International,
has launched Project G650, an effort to encourage 200,000 people
to donate $300 or more so that he can purchase a jet that Business
Insider recently called, the biggest, fastest, and overall
best private jet money can buy. The Gulfstream G650 jet,
which runs for around $65 million, would replace the current
airplane that the ministry has been using, as it was built in
1984, and, according to a video accompanying the fundraising
appeal, the plane, which Dollar has used since 1999, recently
experienced serious technical difficulties that put Dollar and
his family in danger. Continued:
- OVER 300 PROMINENT REPUBLICANS COME OUT OF CLOSET IN SUPPORT
OF HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE
March 7, 2015 - By: Heather Clark - Supreme Court - WASHINGTON
Over 300 prominent Republicans have signed a brief submitted
to the U.S. Supreme Court calling for the legalization of same-sex
marriage nationwide. The amicus brief, or friend
of the court brief, was led by former Republican National Committee
(RNC) chairman Ken Mehlman, who also served as manager of George
W. Bushs 2004 re-election campaign.
- One of the points that I hope people appreciate when
they read the brief is that supporting marriage equality is,
in fact, the conservative position, Mehlman told the Boston
Globe. The brief argues that the 14th Amendment requires equal
protection, which means that homosexuals should be permitted
then to marry each other. Although amici hold a broad spectrum
of socially and politically conservative, moderate, and libertarian
views, amici share the view that laws that bar same-sex couples
from the institution of civil marriage, with all its attendant
profoundly important rights and responsibilities, are inconsistent
with the United States Constitutions dual promises of equal
protection and due process, it reads.
- Besides Mehlman, others who signed the brief include former
New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom
Ridge, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie
Baker, retired U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, former Deputy
Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, two aides to 2008 presidential
candidate John McCain and his daughter Meghan, and several aides
who served Mormon presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who ran
for office in 2012. Dan Blum, the 2011-2012 campaign manager
for Scott Walker, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, U.S. Rep.

commentator C.E. Cupp were also among the over 300 signees.
- SCHOOL BOARD UNANIMOUSLY VOTES NOT TO RESTORE TEN COMMANDMENTS
- FOLLOWING REMOVAL
March 21, 2015 - by: Heather Clark - TCMARION, Ohio A
school board in Ohio has voted unanimously not to restore a nearly
60-year-old plaque of the Ten Commandments that was removed from
a local high school last year following a complaint.
- The Marion City Schools Board agreed on Monday to indefinitely
loan the plaque to the Marion County Historical Society
for display instead of its customary location at Harding High
School. The Ten Commandments display had been donated to the
school by the class of 1956, and has been subsequently hanging
in the hallway for decades next to the Preamble to the United
States Constitution. But last year, an anonymous parent complained
that the plaque violated the separation of church and state
and threatened to call the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
about the matter.
- Harding Principal Kirk Koennecke decided to take down the
plaque, which was then relocated to the office of Superintendent
Gary Barber. However, the removal generated controversy and a
number of students began to petition the board to put the display
Taking down the Ten Commandments has caused more problems
than leaving them up, said Harding Herald Editor Cheyenne
Abrams in December.
- Barber reached an agreement with students and parents to
discuss a compromise as to where the plaque would be displayed
next. But some continued to fight to keep it at Harding High
School, stating that it was a slap in the face to
the class of 1956.
- This week, a number of area residents spoke up in support
of the plaque prior to the boards vote.
- "It was a gift and it was a very nice gift, and I would
like to see it stay, 1956 graduate Bob McQuiston told those
gathered, according to the Marion Star.
- Im ashamed of Marion City Schools right now,
stated parent Sheri Cook.
- SENATORS INTRODUCE EFFORT TO VOID D.C. BILLS THAT FORCE RELIGIOUS
GROUPS TO VIOLATE BELIEFS
March 21, 2015 - By: Heather Clark - WASHINGTON Two U.S.
Senators have introduced joint resolutions that would essentially
void two D.C. bills that passed last year, which some state force
faith-based organizations to violate their religious beliefs.
As previously reported, the D.C. City Council passed the Human
Rights Amendment Act of 2014 in December, which does away with
an exemption afforded to faith-based schools to live out their
beliefs on homosexuality. The exemption is better known as the
Armstrong Amendment, which was passed by Congress in the 1980s.
- D.C. Councilman Tommy Wells had proposed to repeal the religious
exemption as he believed that it made provision for persons of
faith to discriminate against homosexuals.
- The same month, the Council unanimously passed the Reproductive
Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act of 2014, which amended
a 1977 law and prohibits pro-life organizations from discriminating
against employees who obtain abortions. Text of the bill stated
that its purpose was to ensure that individuals are protected
from discrimination by an employer, employment agency, or labor
organization based on an individuals or dependents
reproductive health decisions. But Christian groups opposed
the changes, with the organization Liberty Council writing to
city council to outline its concerns, and Alliance Defending
Freedom (ADF) - and a number of other organizations as co-signers
- sending a letter to Congress to urge intervention.
- The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment
Act of 2014 prevents religious institutions, other faith-based
employers, and pro-life advocacy organizations from making employment
decisions consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs
or their moral and ethical views about the sanctity of human
life, the ADF letter stated.
- CALIFORNIA'S ZAYTUNA BECOMES FIRST ACCREDITED MUSLIM COLLEGE
March 20, 2015 - By: Heather Clark - BERKELEY, Calif.
Zaytuna College in California has become the first accredited
Muslim college in the United State, according to reports. The
college, which was founded five years ago in Berkeley, offers
just one degree - a B.A. in Islamic Law and Theology. Students
are required to have five years of study in Arabic, and likewise
mandates memorization and recitation of portions of the the Quran.
- It website states that it aims to provide its students
a foundation in the intellectual heritage of not one but two
major world civilizations: the Western and the Islamic.
There are currently only 50 students and 15 faculty members.
- [Students are to] understand there is not a dichotomy
between Islam and the West, Vice President of Academic
Affairs Colleen Keyes told the Religion News Service. The
role of Muslims in America is to think about Islam in a non-Islamic
environment and think about how we are American and Muslim at
the same time. Classes include Islamic Law: Purification
and Prayer and Quranic Sciences, as well
as math, English and philosophy.
- Earlier this month, the Western Association of Schools and
Colleges issued Zaytuna officials a letter confirming that it
had been approved for accreditation.
- The Commission affirms the teams findings that
Zaytuna has come into existence to fulfill a critical defining
role within the Islamic faith community, both locally and globally,
the letter reads. Guided by this mission, the institutions
curriculum, pedagogy, and student affairs activities cohere to
produce promising outcomes for its students.
- HAL LINDSEY REPORT
- LIVEPRAYER DAILY DEVOTIONAL
- by Bill Keller - March 21, 2015 How many pastors never give
an invitation to accept Christ as Savior
[...] This is a message that percolated for several years now
and was born out of the daily contact I have with thousands and
thousands of people all over this nation and around the world,
the first hand knowledge I have of tens of thousands of churches,
and the spiritual malpractice well over 50% of pastors commit
each and most every Sunday!!!
- Having started my public ministry in the great city of Chicago
in 1992, I studied in great detail the life and ministry of D.L.
Moody. One of my great honors early in my ministry was to preach
on several occasions to the students at the Moody Bible Institute
and preach a mid-week service at the great Moody Memorial Church.
One of the events that greatly impacted the life and ministry
of Moody was the night of the Chicago fire. It was Sunday night,
October 8, 1871, and as Moody finished his sermon, he told the
crowd who had gathered to hear him preach to evaluate their relationship
with Christ and return next week to make their decisions for
Him. That crowd never gathered since during the night the building
they were meeting in was consumed by the fire and it would be
months before they would find a new place to hold their services.
- Moody would never again make the grievous mistake of sending
home those who came to hear him preach without giving them an
invitation to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Bible
proclaims that TODAY is the day of salvation. The Bible teaches
that tomorrow is promised to NONE of us. Moody was haunted by
the question, how many people who would have been moved by the
Holy Sprit to walk the aisle and give their life to Christ on
that infamous October night, never did so and died in their sins,
lost for all eternity?
- Dwight L. Moody would not even recognize the vast majority
of pastors today. Men, and now women, who preach
a watered down message, using secular books for their references
rather than the Bible. Pastors who stand in the pulpits
of America and refuse to even deal with sin since it might offend
people. The ones who make a mockery of Christ by condoning, accepting,
and even glorifying gross sins like homosexuality and the slaughter
of innocent babies. And what I am certain would break Moodys
heart, pastors who preach Sunday after Sunday and
NEVER give an invitation for those they are preaching to, to
accept Jesus as their Savior by faith.
- During the first 3 yrs of my public ministry, I preached
in over 500 churches all over the nation. All types of denominations,
racial and ethnic make-ups, churches with thousands and churches
with less than 20. It was during those years I had my first insight
into how many churches rarely, if ever gave those who gathered
on Sunday an opportunity to accept Jesus as their Savior by faith.
Over these past 16 years of Liveprayer, in dealing with literally
tens of thousands of people first hand, thousands upon thousands
of churches all over this country and around the world, I would
not hesitate to estimate that in well over 50% of churches, those
who gather are NEVER given the invitation to ask Jesus into their
heart and life by faith and become born again
- DIVERSION AND DESTINY
March 19, 2015 - A Devotional - By Pastor Anton Bosch
- Paul writes about the devil that we are not ignorant
of his devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). Yet it seems that
many of us are ignorant of the tricks and devices the evil one
uses to thwart the plan of God. Satan knows that most of us cannot
be persuaded or intimidated to give up the good fight, so he
does what serves his purpose just as well diversion. He
uses many tricks to accomplish this, including pressure, temptation,
weariness and obscuring the issues. As long as he can get us
to focus on minor issues and not continue with what the Lord
has called us to do, he is happy.
- Such diversion can take many forms. Some of them are good
on the surface, noble and godly things, while others are worldly
things. Some of the good things include: overemphasizing
a doctrinal viewpoint, focusing on legalism, or even getting
bogged down with the things related to Christian ministry. Some
of the worldly things include careers, hobbies, sports, recreation,
family and possessions. The Devil will keep us busy and make
us feel we are doing the right things as long as we miss the
call of God on our lives.
- One example of a man who seemed to fall in this trap often
was Saul, King of Israel. First he took upon himself the role
of the priest to present sacrifices, when he had been called
to be the King (1Samuel 13:9). Then he was tricked into sparing
Agag when his instructions were to destroy all of Amalek (1Samuel
15:8). Finally he wasted the rest of his reign hunting David
instead of fighting the real enemies. No wonder Saul came to
the end of his life and cried these pitiful words: I have
played the fool and erred exceedingly (1Samuel 26:21).
It has to be the most disappointing thing to come to the end
of your life and realize that you just wasted the one life God
gave you on trivialities! May I plead with you, my brother
and sister: you have one life and one shot at fulfilling your
destiny. Dont allow the devil to rob you of Gods
high calling. http://www.herescope.net/
- DEMONS, DAUGHTERS AND DNA: A SEQUEL AND RESPONSE
March 09, 2015 - A Grammatical Analysis of Genesis 6:4 over the
Question, Were the Daughters of Adam Impregnated with Nephilim
by the Sons of God?
- The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward,
when [or because] the sons of God came in to the daughters of
and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who
were of old, men of renown.
Emphasis added, Genesis 6:4, NASB
- The Scenario
Before presenting a grammatical study of Genesis 6 verse 4, allow
the explanation of some background as to why this study is being
presented now. As readers of the Herescope blog may be aware,
those espousing a new prophetic paradigm assert that at present,
the human gene pool is being corrupted for reason of the invasion
of extraterrestrial beings that are cohabitating with human women,
resulting in the birthing of a mutant species of creature, part
human and part supernatural. Espousers of this scenario argue
that what happened in Noahs day before the Flood is again
happening now as, according to Jesus prophecy, the end
of the world approaches (Genesis 6:4; 6:5-7:24; Matthew 24:3,
37). The birth of a genetically altered species of Nephilim before
the Deluge helps explain why God destroyed the world then. So
fast forward millennia. It is assumed that the same kind of invasion-mating
scenario is happening now as earth ripens for Gods judgment
again (2 Peter 3:3-10). After all, Jesus said that the times
prefatory to His Second Coming would be just like the days
of Noah (Matthew 24:37). As there were genetically altered
creatures (Nephilim) before Gods judgment of the world
then, so there will be, given the nearness of the end, such mutants
now. These new Nephilim are rapidly spreading, and they owe their
origin to the mating of extraterrestrial sons with terrestrial
daughters. This is the scenario proponents of the new prophetic
paradigm are promoting in their books, lectures and conferences.
THE MERGING OF MUDDY RIVERS
The Singing Prophet Kim Clement. . .
. . . Washes in Chuck Misslers Stream
And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold,
I judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he
goats. Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the
good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue
of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye
must foul the residue with your feet? And as for my flock, they
eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink
that which ye have fouled with your feet. (Ezekiel 34:17-19)
- Kim Clement hosts Chuck Missler End Times Conference
By Gaylene Goodroad - And he [Naaman] has a river problem.
He does. And many of us don't want to wash in a river because
we feel that our rivers are better
. And because of that,
he [Naaman] lost outhe could have lost out on being healed
and being restored. I was in that position. I don't want to dip
myself and wash myself in that river because we have something
better. Which apparently was the Kingdom message, and you know,
Word of Faith and all this great stuff that was out therebut
so unbalanced. And one of them was, of course, end times. And
I mocked it many times
eventually Naaman goes and washes
himself in the river and he is restored. Don't reject this river
[Misslers] because you think that what you have is better.
We need rivers to restore us. And I am proud to say that the
Lord God, through my wife, brought this representative of that
river to us [Missler], so we could be restored and have a healthy
outlook and preach the gospel, and win the lost, touch the untouchable,
and reach the unreachable. And that's what were gonna do!
NAR Prophet Kim Clement[i]
- This is what it is. I was very desperate to hear the
truth about the Second Coming and about the Rapture.... In the
meantime, my wife, who by the way, for thirty-something years
basically trusted what I taught... she knew there was a gap somewhere
she was searching and gettinglistening to different teachers.
And she was getting passionate. And then I heard this voice
I'd said to Greg [Wark], Greg just tell me of a teacher that
can tell us the whole thing, uh, in a nutshell. So I don't have
to spend days and hours and weeks learning. And Greg said there's
only one man that I can guarantee will teach you and impart something
on you. His name is Dr. Chuck Missler. And I said to Greg. Okay,
I'll let Jane listen to him
She's been telling me about
Isaiah 53 being the Holy of Holies and all this stuff. And I've
been listening to what he's been saying. And so I asked the Lord
to do what He did with Cornelius. Cornelius prayed. I pray a
lot. Cornelius gave alms and God sent the very best to him. And
He sentand I know Dr. Chuck won't even acknowledge thisbut
I said to the Lord, 'Send me the best for my people, cause I
love my people'. For thirty six years I fought being a pastor,
you know that. And then He gave me all these people. We have
an online church of almost 15 thousand people. I said, 'why are
you doing this? I'm not a good pastor.' Well, apparently, I am,
because I got the best. And so I believe that we're going to
be taught. And this is the beginning of a moment in destiny that
I believe is God-orchestrated long before we were born."

ANALYZING CHUCK MISSLERS STREAM
For the past few years, we have documented the ever-mystical
leanings of notable Bible teacher and author, Chuck Missler,
ultimately listing him among a group of evangelical teachers
weve dubbed Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP)
leaders, because of their gravitation away from sound truth revealed
in Scripture alone, coupled with their feverish efforts to re-fashion
end-times prophecy to fit their extra-biblical speculations.
We have written extensively and in detail of these seductive,
morphing departures from the Word of God.[v] The end result has
been a toxic mixture of truth and errorleading away from
Christ and headlong into the occult.
In recent years, Missler has been embroiled in several controversies
related to his teachings dealing with Quantum Mysticism,[vi]
Cryptic Bible Codes,[vii] and Nephilim False Eschatology.[viii]
He has also been caught on more than one occasion in plagiarism.[ix]
- TRANSHUMANISM: A POSTHUMAN PARADIGM SHIFT?
- November 01, 2014 - End-Time Scenarios of the New Alchemists
- But is now made manifest by the appearing of our
Saviour Jesus Christ, Who hath abolished death, and hath brought
life and immortality to light through the Gospel. (2
THE RESURRECTION OF ANCIENT ALCHEMY
Since Satans great fall, man too has attempted to become
like God Most High. Down through the centuries rebellious men
have stiffened their necks in defiance to the Creator and have
devised various methods and religious pathways in vain attempts
to morph themselves into immortal or divine beingsapart
from the Gospel of Salvation. All of themfrom the ancient
alchemists to the modern-day Mormons, Masons, and Transhumanistshave
failed (and will fail) miserably because the God of the Bible
has chosen only one way for sinful mankind to achieve true immortality:
through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of His Son
the Lord Jesus Christ.
- In contradiction to the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, the
Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm (PPP)-leaders (our term)
have given hearty heed to these rebellious ideologues. By giving
credence to these machinations to undo the curse of sin, these
PPP-teachers peddle new eschatology scenarios to unsuspecting
Christians under the guise of a postmodern scientific alchemical
concoction: Transhumanism (or Posthumanism).
- The PPP-proponents have capitalized on the foreboding and
sensational elements of the Posthuman movement by stirring up
fear and dread with unbiblical teachings that say the Transhumanists
will not only succeed in their God-defying schemes, but in doing
so will threaten the extinction of the human race. This faulty
idea is found nowhere in Scripture.
- While on the one hand the PPP-collaborators have loudly and
publicly denounced Transhumanism as wicked and unbiblical, on
the other theyve piggybacked their own preposterous speculations,
imaginations, suppositions, and conjectures onto the Transhumanist
movement to arrive at bizarre doctrines that are foreign to the
Scriptures. In so doing they give unintentional validity and
credibility to the Posthumanists ill-fated plots. They
have mingled the immortal visions of the Transhumanists with
their own contorted false Nephilim doctrines and apocalyptic
end-time scenarioswhich perilously do an end-run around
the Book of Revelation (not that they could ever succeed in undoing
the truths of the divine revelations in this book). These endtime
teachers seem to be attempting to re-write the future (eschatology),
and in the process they are abandoning, ignoring and contorting
God's Word. http://www.herescope.net/
- STAGE MANAGED" ECUMENISM
- Thursday, September 11, 2014 - A Commentary by Dr. Orrel
Unbelievable and largely unseen ecumenical coalitions and ad
hoc alliances are forming. These alliances are being forged by
a small cadre of seeker-driven megachurch celebrity pastors/authors.
These vision-casting celebrities are in effect acting as power
brokers in forming ecumenical coalitions. As with all coalitions
these players are attempting to gain something for themselves
and their ministries and the expanding of their personal
reputations. They are willing to exchange their platforms and
pulpits with other celebrities of like class and clout. These
platform exchanges often cross boundaries into false and even
heretical territory. Consequently, these celebrities become an
endorsement of false teaching to the masses of low information
evangelicals who are fans of these various Christian celebrities.
- The opportunity for these maneuvers is that classical evangelicalism
as a theologically descriptive word is becoming near meaningless.
Gregory Thornbury, now president of Kings College states: the
evangelicalism I signed up for is gone forever.... In fact many
leading theologians today see evangelicalism as a relic of a
bygone era. (Thornbury, Recovering Classic Evangelicalism,
Crossway, 2013, pp. 223)
- The vacuum created by the disappearance of classical evangelicalism,
unfortunately has been filled by TV ministries, bookstores, stadiums
rallies, mega churches and extended mega church campuses and
their media promotions.
- These new media leaders have launched their own media outlets
replete with fully equipped transportable entourages. If you
can't attend the events you can get it all on GodTV, TBN or a
DVD for a price. These efforts are the beginnings of a back door
ecumenism, an unpublicized ecumenical convergence. A sort of
reverse ecumenical big bang is upon us. There is an unseen and
undocumented ecumenical contraction in Christendom. This phenomena
is unreported and even mostly an unspoken practical ecumenism.
It's as if there is a gravitational pull that draws even the
most unlikely supporters together. There is a handy deniable
component built into this in that it is promoted by sharing a
stage or platform. These coalition partners promote each other
by inviting other celebrities to their platform of their mega
church or stadium conferences. Some rush in to say that such
so-called platform ecumenism is guilt by association.
It is that, but more, so their presence together on a platform
shouts for all to hear a guilt by endorsement. It is like forming
a shadow government. This ground level ecumenism is not the product
of denominational leaders. In fact denomination leaders in this
postmodern era have been essentially relegated to the sidelines.
The sheeple (the sheep as people) blindly follow their celebrities.
They pay little or no attention to their unknown denominational
leaders. Beyond that many denominational leaders join right in.
The sheeple are out there. They can be organized to follow their
leaders. Indeed sheep follow other sheep. http://www.herescope.net/
- THE NEW CHRISTIAN LEFT IS TWISTING THE GOSPEL: HERE IS HOW
- March 16, 2015 | CHELSEN VICARI - Peek behind the curtain
of some "progressive" or "hip" evangelical
churches, past the savvy technology and secular music, and you
will find more than just a contemporary worship service. You'll
find faith leaders encouraging young evangelicals to trade in
their Christian convictions for a gospel filled with compromise.
They're slowly attempting to give evangelicalism an "update"and
the change is not for the good.
- It's painful for me to admit, but we can no longer rest carefree
in our evangelical identitybecause it is changing. No doubt
you have seen the headlines declaring that evangelicalism is
doomed because evangelical kids are leaving the faith. It is
no secret that there is an expanding gulf between traditional
Christian teachings and contemporary moral values. But the sad
truth is that the ideological gulf between America's evangelical
grown-ups and their kids, aka the "Millennials," seems
to be widening too.
- Somehow the blame for this chasm is being heaped on traditional
churches. They are accused of having too many rules as well as
being homophobic and bigoted. Yes, we've heard those false claims
from popular culture in its desperate attempt to keep Christianity
imprisoned within the sanctuary walls. But now popular culture
is being aided by Christ-professing bedfellows whose message
to "coexist," "tolerate" and "keep out
of it" is more marketable to the rising generation of evangelicals.
- The seasoned Christian soldiers are noticing these distortions
of the gospel. But for young evangelicals, the spiritual haze
is harder to wade through. Desperate for acceptance in a fallen
world, many young evangelicals (and some older ones) choose not
to take Christ out of the chapel, and so they are unwittingly
killing the church's public witness. In this uphill cultural
battle, mired by scare tactics and fear, three types of evangelical
Christians are emerging:
- Couch-potato Christians: These Christians adapt to the culture
by staying silent on the tough culture-and-faith discussions.
Typically this group will downplay God's absolute truths by promoting
the illusion that neutrality was Jesus' preferred method of evangelism.
- Cafeteria-style Christians: This group picks and chooses
which Scripture passages to live by, opting for the ones that
best seem to jive with culture. Typically they focus solely on
the "nice" parts of the gospel while simultaneously
and intentionally minimizing sin, hell, repentance and transformation.
Convictional Christians: In the face of the culture's harsh admonitions,
these evangelicals refuse to be silent. Mimicking Jesus, they
compassionately talk about love and grace while also sharing
with their neighbors the need to recognize and turn from sin.
- I know about these three types of Christians because at one
time or another I have fallen into each of these three categories.
My parents will tell you that even though I was raised in church,
I morphed into a full-fledged feminist, told my parents they
were ignorant for not endorsing homosexuality and bought into
the distorted social justice rhetoric that confuses caring for
the poor with advancing socialist or big government systems and
demonizing the United States for its free market system. I'm
not ashamed to share my story because my experiences and those
of my fellow bold evangelicals are a testimony of God's awesome,
transforming power. Being countercultural for Christ isn't easy.
What does the Great Commission say? Jesus commanded us to go,
"teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you"

- ISIS, ISRAEL & IRAN MAY BE CLOSING IN ON END-TIMES PROPHESY
- By Kim Pennington - 11 March, 2015 - MOUNT JULIET, TENN.
(Christian Examiner) -- Days before Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu delivered a controversial speech to the United States
Congress warning of the danger of Iran building nuclear weapons,
Bible prophecy teachers told an audience at Victory Baptist Church
that current events involving Israel, ISIS, Iran, and the United

Revelation are literal, future events and that Christians will
be "raptured" or removed from the earth before the
events of chapters 5-19 occur.
- While not commiting to any specific date for Christ's return,
Duck said the current world response to ISIS' terroristic threats
may put into place the multi-national force needed to fulfill
an Isaiah 13 prophecy about the destruction of rebuilt Babylon
in modern-day Iraq.
- MULTI-NATIONAL FORCES
- "[Isaiah 13] is about a multi-nation attack in Iraq
that will take place when the Tribulation period is close, but
the prophecy continues on down to a second battle in Iraq at
the end of the Tribulation period," he said.
- MORE THAN 40,000 RALLY FOR NAVY CHAPLAIN ACCUSED OF BEING
- By Todd Starnes - Fox News - 12 March, 2015 - GOOSE CREEK,
S. C. (Christian Examiner) -- Thousands of Americans, including
former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and famed evangelist Franklin
Graham, have come to the defense of a chaplain who could be thrown
out of the Navy because of his Christian faith. Lt. Cmdr. Wes
Modder has been accused of failing to show "tolerance and
respect" in private counseling sessions regarding issues
pertaining to faith, marriage and sexuality -- specifically homosexuality.
Michael Berry, an attorney at Liberty Institute, a law firm that
specializes in religious liberty cases, told me his client categorically
denies making any such statements. He said the chaplain is the
victim of a setup.
- Modder, who is endorsed by the Assemblies of God, has also
been accused of being unable to "function in the diverse
and pluralistic environment" of the Naval Nuclear Power
Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C. The highly decorated, 19-year
military veteran previously served in the Marine Corps and has
had several high-profile assignments including being named
force chaplain of the Navy SEALs.
- Just a few months ago, Modder's commander called him "the
best of the best" and a "consummate professional leader"
worthy of an early promotion http://www.christianexaminer.com/article/more.than.40000.
- CALIFORNIA SCHOOL DISTRICT FIGHTS FOR RIGHT TO PRAY
- By Will Hall - 11 March, 2015 - CHINO, Calif. (Christian
Examiner) -- Chino Valley Unified School District has voted to
fight a lawsuit filed by the anit-Christian Freedom From Religion
Foundation based in Wisconsin, that attacks the invocation policy
of the schools.
- The school board voted unanimously to retain Pacific Justice
Institute for the nominal amount of $1.00, which is expected
to save taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars in defense costs,
according to a press release.
- The FFRF, which claims 21,500 members nationwide and 3,360
among California's nearly 39 million population, brought suit
in November on behalf of four plaintiffs (a student, two parents
and a district employee) to challenge the school district's practice
of opening board meetings with a prayer.
- The lawsuit claims prayer represents a religious practice
that is "unconstitutional under both the federal and
state constitutions" and asks the court to "permanently
enjoin the board from any further school-sponsored religious
exercises." However, the school board disputes the FFRF's
claim citing a 5-4 ruling in 2014 by the U.S. Supreme Court.
- That decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway found the New
York municipality's practice of opening meetings with prayer
does not violate the Establishment Clause, but is consistent
with the tradition long followed by Congress, state legislatures
and even the Supreme Court. http://www.christianexaminer.com/article/
- PASTOR'S WIFE FINED FOR PRAYER WALKING
- By Vanessa Garcia Rodriguez - 10 March, 2015 - LISBON, N.D.
Christian Examiner - A local pastor's wife received fines and
a citation for "unnecessary noise" after practicing
her faith by prayer walking her hometown's streets last month.
The native African couple left their country for better opportunities
and religious freedoms. Instead Martha Nagbe claims she experienced
a violation of her rights and says police now prohibit her from
praying in downtown Lisbon, North Dakota, and neighborhoods near
the Methodist church her husband leads.
- Though Nagbe attended two court dates and paid a $150 fee
for praying too loudly on city sidewalks, she said she will not
stop interceding for her community. "In the United States
it's one nation under God," Nagbe told Valley News KVLY.
Pastor Juwle Nagbe called the circumstance a disrespect to his
wife. "For them to antagonize her, to make her look like
a bad person, sometimes makes me angry." But Lisbon law
enforcement told the news station community members have complained
about Nagbe's loud praying and praising as she walks by carrying
her Bible during daylight. Police Chief Jeanette Persons called
Nagbe's actions "disturbing the peace."

- By Vanessa Garcia Rodriguez -10 March, 2015 - WARNER ROBINS,
Ga. - Christian Examiner - Military personnel at Georgia's Robins
Air Force Base received instruction to stop imparting the greeting
"have a blessed day" Monday. According to the anti-Christian
Military Religious Freedom Foundation website, an active duty
Air Force member contacted the organization for assistance claiming
the greeting was an issue of separation of church and state.

would result in endangering himself and his family, said he received
the greeting at one of the base gates since Feb. 23 "by
at least 10 different Airmen ranging in rank."
- "On no less than 15 occasions over the last two weeks,
I have been greeted by the military personnel at the gate with
the phrase 'Have a blessed day,'" the complaint read. The
statement added the greeting was unwelcome due to the serviceman's
