Vatican Announces Today Pope Francis will Attend 500th Anniv of Protestant Reformation Ceremony
Jan 26th, 2016

NTEB - by Geoffrey Grider
Categories: One World Church

Pope Francis will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by attending an ecumenical service in Sweden as a guest of the Lutheran church, the Vatican said Monday. In a gesture that would even recently have been unthinkable for a Catholic pontiff, Francis will visit the Swedish city of Lund on October 31 for a commemoration jointly organised by his own inter-faith agency and the Lutheran World Federation.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4 (KJV)

 Let me just start of  by saying that I am not a Protestant. I am a Bible believing Christian who attends a Baptist church. The original Protestants were Catholics who objected to some but not all of the teachings of the Catholic Church. I do not agree with any of the teachings of the Catholic church because they do not line up with the Bible. For example, a Catholic will say to me “we both believe that Jesus is the only way to salvation”. I agree that Jesus is the only way to salvation and Heaven. But the Catholic church then tells me that in order to “have Jesus”, I must perform various Catholic sacramental rituals (not found in the Bible), pray the Rosary (not found in the Bible), confess my sins to a priest (not found in the Bible), and ask Mary to “make intercession with her son” for me (also not found in the Bible). The Bible and the Catholic church have never been in harmony, and they will never be in harmony.

So it is with great fascination that we see Pope Francis making his move to bring Protestant back into the Catholic church:

POPE FRANCIS WILL CELEBRATE THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE REFORMATION BY ATTENDING AN ECUMENICAL SERVICE IN SWEDEN AS A GUEST OF THE LUTHERAN CHURCH, THE VATICAN SAID MONDAY. IN A GESTURE THAT WOULD EVEN RECENTLY HAVE BEEN UNTHINKABLE FOR A CATHOLIC PONTIFF, FRANCIS WILL VISIT THE SWEDISH CITY OF LUND ON OCTOBER 31 FOR A COMMEMORATION JOINTLY ORGANISED BY HIS OWN INTER-FAITH AGENCY AND THE LUTHERAN WORLD FEDERATIONE (LWF). SOURCe.

For the past few years, Pope Francis has been working overtime to bring God’s “wandering children” back under the tent of Mother Rome. He has been surprisingly successful with the televangelists and the Charismatics who, having no Bible to stand on, fall quite easily under the seductive charm of the Vatican spokesperson.

Pope Francis is building his One World Church, and the gates of Hell are helping him to create it. We have long said that before it’s all over, an enormous cross-section of Laodicean Christianity will either join the Pope’s unholy end times church or will be supporters of it. We present the following links as evidence:

  • RICK WARREN SAYS POPE FRANCIS IS THE POPE OF ALL CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE
  • JOEL OSTEEN MEETS WITH POPE FRANCIS
  • POPE FRANCIS MEETS WITH CHARISMATIC CHURCH LEADERS TO PLAN RETURN TO MOTHER CHURCH

Francis is going after the low-hanging fruit in the Lutheran church, they have long since lost any sense of Biblical direction they once had. The same goes for the apostate Presbyterian Church USA as well with their lesbians priests and same-sex marriage ceremonies. The sad part is that millions of Protestants gave their lives to throw off the demonic shackles of Rome and the Vatican. The King James Bible would not have been possible without the Protestant Reformation.

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. Revelation 17:5-7 (KJV)

And the idea that Pope Francis could one day woo them back is tragic, but it is also part of end times prophecy. The Vatican is the Whore of Babylon mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18, and the office of Pope has long been associated with the office of the Antichrist.

The IMF Proposes Global Wealth Confiscation
Jan 26th, 2016
Commentary
Damon Geller
Categories: Contemporary Issues

As first reported by Forbes, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) dropped a bomb in its October Fiscal Monitor Report. The report paints a dire picture for high-debt nations that fail to aggressively “mobilize domestic revenue,” which is code for “aggressively tax its citizens.” It goes on to build a case for drastic measures and recommends a series of escalating income and consumption tax increases – culminating in the direct confiscation of assets. Why is the IMF proposing this? Because global governments and central banks pumped trillions of dollars of YOUR money into the banks and stock market over the last several years, catapulting public debts to tens of TRILLIONS of dollars. But now, governments and central banks can no longer sustain these debt levels, and global wealth confiscation is their only way to maintain the Ponzi scheme.

Rick Warren Says Pope Francis is the Pope of All Christians Worldwide
Jan 26th, 2016
Commentary
by Geoffrey Grider
Categories: Apostasy

Rick Warren is seen slyly referring to Pope Francis as "our pope", and then going on to brag about what a great job he is doing. He wants you to blithely assume that of course Pope Francis is the "spiritual head" over all of Christianity and not simply over the Roman Catholic corporation. He slips it in like that's what everyone already thinks and believes. This is nothing more than mental conditioning. A bible believing Christian under no circumstances ever would acknowledge that any pope in the Roman system had any sort of rule over them of any kind.

BUILDING THE ONE WORLD RELIGION

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

There is a hardcore, full-court press happening right now to unify all Christian denominations under the banner of the Roman Catholic Church, and the charge is being led by none other than apostate pastor  and Chrislam founder Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California. Warren has a purpose driven plan to break down and destroy the Christian church, and unite the pieces with Rome.

In a recent video, Rick Warren is seen slyly referring to Pope Francis as “our pope”, and then going on to brag about what a great job he is doing. He wants you to blithely assume that of course Pope Francis is the “spiritual head” over all of Christianity and not simply over the Roman Catholic corporation. He slips it in like that’s what everyone already thinks and believes. This is nothing more than mental conditioning. A bible believing Christian under no circumstances ever would acknowledge that any pope in the Roman system had any sort of rule over them of any kind.

In another video, Warren lays out his reasons for why all Christian denominations should be united under Rome while failing miserably in his lame attempt to explain away Mary worship and worshipping of dead saints. He very incorrectly asserts that we “all worship the same Jesus” which, if the bible is true, we clearly do not. Warren holds great sway over the millions of his Laodicean Christian followers who simply accept what he speaks as the truth, and will never once check it against scripture. The Roman Catholic “jesus” is received by eating a magic wafer and drinking wine. The actual Jesus of the bible is received by grace through faith and nothing else. One has nothing at all in common with the other.

LET NO MAN DECEIVE YOU BY ANY MEANS: FOR THAT DAY SHALL NOT COME, EXCEPT THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, AND THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION; WHO OPPOSETH AND EXALTETH HIMSELF ABOVE ALL THAT IS CALLED GOD, OR THAT IS WORSHIPPED; SO THAT HE AS GOD SITTETH IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD, SHEWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD.” 2 THESSALONIANS 2:3,4

This is the great falling away prophesied in the bible, and it is happening in our sight. Pope Francis seems like the man likely to fulfill the role of the false prophet of Revelation. Rome will once again swallow up the professing Christian church as it did in 325 AD under Constantine. Rome will once again conduct an Inquisition, but this time it will use the muscle of Islam instead of the army of Spain. Blood will flow in the streets from the veins of people holding a King James bible and refusing to worship the pope. These events have already happened, and they will happen again.

The only difference will be that this time, it will be Christians like Rick Warren betraying the sheep to the executioner.

Porn Addiction is Ravaging Christians, Including Church Leadership
Jan 26th, 2016
Commentary
Jack Minor
Categories: Contemporary Issues

A Christian may think he or she is the only believer in town struggling with porn. Unfortunately, thats far from true. Addiction to pornography is rapidly becoming an epidemic throughout our society and even in the Church.

The main reason: widespread accessibility. What used to be available only in a citys red-light district is now in plain view on the covers of sexy magazines at convenience stores, in Hollywood films, TV shows and commercials, on life-size posters at the mall and larger-than-life billboards along the highway, in suggestive lingerie ads in the Sunday newspaper and on millions of web sites.

Years ago, people had to take a risk to visit an "adult bookstore", after all, they might be seen by someone they knew! But with the Internet, people can now inflame and indulge their sexual appetites with erotic material at any time, in any neighborhood, in the total privacy of their living rooms.

Although pornography is more common among men, many women are also becoming hooked, not so much by visual imagery, but by the emotional intimacy available through Internet chat rooms.
People often hope that their desire for porn will diminish when they get married or grow older, but the emotional and physiological factors can be continuing problems.

A recent study by the Barna Group titled "The Porn Phenomenon," commissioned by Josh McDowell Ministries and Covenant Eyes, a Christian internet and filtering company, is said to be the most comprehensive study recently on the subject of porn and contains some eyebrow raising information.

The study revealed that over 90 percent of teens, 87 percent of young adults and 79 percent of adults have viewed an image of sexual intercourse. When it comes to viewing nude images that are sexually arousing, the numbers are also shockingly high. For teens, the number is 78 percent, with 69 and 53 percent for young adults and adults, respectively. 

However, when it comes to the ministry what is most shocking is that, rather than being lower, the numbers are significantly higher. Ninety-six percent of youth pastors have viewed an image of sexual intercourse and 86 percent have viewed a sexually arousing image. For pastors the numbers are only slightly better at 95 percent and 80 percent. Among all age groups "personal arousal" is cited as the most common reason for viewing porn.

Additionally, over half of the pastors and youth pastors who participated in the study said they had either struggled with porn in the past or were currently struggling with it.

It is one thing to cite statistics, but the question remains: what do we do about it? Specifically, what should be done to the almost unanimous number of pastors who have viewed some type of sexual image?

Editors Note....This is surely a sign of the last days. "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that the imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." That preceeded the judgment of God. The lord said, "Be ye holy for I am Holy." A man who is driven by unholy thoughts cannot speak for a Holy God, how much less a pastor. A sin that is so pervasive is lightly esteemed by men but not in the sight of God.

Pope Francis Meets With Charismatic Church Leaders to Plan Return to Mother Church
Jan 26th, 2016
Commentary
by Geoffrey Grider
Categories: One World Church

At their meeting in Rome, they discussed among other things, the coming alliance of the Roman Catholic church with the Charismatic apostates. ...

THE APOSTATE CHARISMATICS WILL BE THE FIRST TO FALL

“That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.” Ecclesiastes 3:15

Back in March, we reported to you how Anglican priest Tony Palmer, a member of the Roman Catholic Ecumenical Delegation for Christian Unity and Reconciliation, gave a rousing call to Kenneth Copeland’s church to “return to Mother Rome”. He was met with a hero’s welcome by a very enthusiastic congregation. And just in case you thought that it was a “one off” meeting, you would be sadly mistaken.

Pope Francis isn’t selling anything, he’s buying.

Flash forward to today in Vatican City, Rome, and who do we see meeting around the table?  Why, it looks like charismatic leader Kenneth Copeland, Roman Catholic priest Tony Palmer, and assorted others from the Charismatic movement in Toronto breaking bread with the False Prophet from the book of Revelation, Pope Francis. And just in case you forgot Tony Palmer’s original message, here is a refresher for you:

At their  meeting today in Rome, they discussed among other things, the coming alliance of the Roman Catholic church with the Charismatic apostates. This has already been in the works for quite some time, and they feel very confident of making the merger. Of course, at first, it will simply be  a “let’s focus on what we have in common” ruse whose mask will be dropped soon after the Charismatics have grown comfortable with the idea.

Absorbing the Charismatics and the Pentecostal movements will create the foundation the Vatican needs for their One World Religion. The Vatican’s alliance with Islam has already been established to great success. Just like Rome used the army of Spain as muscle for the Spanish Inquisition during the dark ages, Rome will use the blood-thirsty Muslim terrorists of Islam to regain control in our day. Joel Osteen has already met with Pope Francis, and is a huge supporter of his efforts.

“And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” Revelation 18:4

The Roman Catholic Church brags constantly that they have “never changed”, and that is true. The Vatican that exists today is exactly the same demonic system that began the Spanish Inquisition to kill Christians back then. As Ecclesiastes says, that which has already been, is the thing that shall be.

Even so, come Lord Jesus…quickly.

Life In The Internet Outhouse

Picking up the ball, campaign groupies continue to muddle meanings for their own ends.

Islamic Germany - Only a Generation Away?
Jan 26th, 2016
Commentary
Tom Alago
Categories: Warning

What do Iraq, Egypt, Pakistan, Morocco, Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Jordan have in common? Any casual observer with a basic knowledge of geography, politics, religion or current affairs should know. These nations are predominantly Arab and are all Islamic by religion and culture, which also strongly reflects their political structures and societal norms.

How about adding Germany to the list? Today, it would clearly be the odd country out.  Yet, it has recently been projected that the next generation of Germans will be predominantly Muslim, and there is good reason to believe so.
Devin Foley explains why in an article for intellectualtakeout.org while quoting German Adorjan Kovacs, as published in The European. Kovaks makes the argument that, based on demographics, the primarily-Muslim migrants from the Middle East and North African will actually become the dominant German population group within a generation.

According to his analysis, most of todays 80 million Germans are in older age groups. In contrast, the migrants are generally in their 20's and 30's. So when you compare the population of Germans who are in their 20's and 30's to the current and expected population of migrants who are in their 20's and 30's, you expect a future lopsided demographic in which the numbers of immigrants will exceed those of indigenous Germans living in the next generation.

Kovaks caveat to his line of reasoning is that "...there is some uncertainty in this extrapolation, namely the level of immigration, the right to stay and the award of family reunification in the next few years. Nevertheless, it is very likely."

All this is courtesy of Chancellor Angela Merkel's open-door immigration policy. Her strategy was globally hailed as an act of leadership and courage in the face of a humanitarian crisis, but also attracted harsh criticism locally. The scale and potential adverse impact on Germanys social, legal and political structures was generally decried by Germans and left many of them jittery and pessimistic, especially following the recent attacks in Paris and San Bernardino. 

The comparison is also made of Germany with the United States, which has a large portion of its population aging, but also large populations of youth who will be able to fill the void. Germany, on the other hand, does not.

So what are the implications of this? The Gatestone Institutes Soeren Kern reviewed the possibilities and likelihoods late last year. Based on his findings, it can be deduced that Germany may not need to wait for a full generation to find out for sure.
 
Kern quoted a demographic forecast by Bavarian lawmakers in which Germany's Muslim population is set to nearly quadruple to an astonishing 20 million by 2020  just four years from now. 

He further reported that of the 800,000 migrants and refugees arriving in Germany in 2015, at least 80% (or 640,000) are Muslim, according to a recent estimate by the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, a Muslim umbrella group based in Cologne. This estimate is not in dispute.
Some of the predictable outcomes of the tilt in German demographics have been described as follows by various observers:

- Loss of Majority Rule by local Germans: Since Muslims will be in the majority, social norms, values and laws would become overtly Islamic by the democratically exercised will of the majority.  This would include the spread of Sharia-based norms and values throughout Germany. 

- Economic Instability: At a press conference on August 19, German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière said that although many of the migrants are from the Middle East and North Africa, a large number (40%) are from countries in the Balkans, including Albania and Kosovo. This implies that nearly half of those arriving in Germany are economic migrants, not refugees fleeing war zones. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán warned: "Europe is not able to accept everyone who wants a better life. We have to help them to get back their own lives with dignity and we have to send them back to their own countries..." 

- Legal Challenges: The demographic tilt would cause clashes with existing laws and regulations. An example is that polygamy, although illegal under German law, is reportedly commonplace among Muslims in all major German cities.

- Security Fears: This is especially worrying due to an acknowledged inadequacy in the vetting and screening of immigrants. Former Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich (CSU) concluded: "We have lost control&It is totally irresponsible that tens of thousands of people are flowing into the country uncontrolled and unregistered, and we can only unreliably estimate exactly how many of them are Islamic State fighters or Islamist sleepers. I am convinced that no other country in the world would be so naive and starry-eyed to expose itself to such a risk."

- Social & Political Unrest: According to Uwe Brandl, president of the Bavarian Association of Municipalities, resentment from indigenous German families could boil over a when migrants seem to get preferential treatment at their expense, or cut into limited government supplies and amenities. 

In Brandls narrated example: "A four-member refugee family receives up to 1,200 Euros per month in transfer payments, plus accommodation and meals. Now go to an unemployed German family man who has worked maybe 30 years, and now with his family receives only marginally more. These people are asking us whether we politicians really see this as fair and just."

Kern adds that Brandl's concerns are echoed in a leaked intelligence document, which warns that the influx of more than one million migrants from the Muslim world this year will lead to increasing political instability in Germany.

Viktor Orbán, President of Hungary, probably captured dominant German sentiment when he said: "For us today, what is at stake is Europe, the lifestyle of European citizens, European values, the survival or disappearance of European nations, and more precisely formulated, their transformation beyond recognition. Today, the question is not merely in what kind of a Europe we would like to live, but whether everything we understand as Europe will exist at all."

No wonder that Germans have been left biting their nails and crossing their fingers over whether Germany as theyve known it will exist at all, in just a few short years.
