A 21st Century Reformation: It Will be Supernatural & Missional

"A 21st-century reformation will demand reinserting the supernatural into the heart of Christianity. This will result not only in a sounder biblical theology but also a more powerful missional church. The world will then understand what Jesus meant when he said, 'But if it is by the Spirit of God that I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you'"(Matt. 12:28, ESV). ~Hwa Yung, Bishop of the Methodist Church of Malaysia, Lausanne World Pulse
According to Bible, the end times will be marked by widespread deception, counterfeit miracles, and the appearance of false prophets. Each of these evils will contribute to an atmosphere that will deceive an untold number of people throughout the world. Almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus warned us about this time period:
"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Matthew 24:24 
Lausanne Conference at Wheaton College

In a world evangelism plan founded by Billy Graham, the Lausanne Movement, whose goals are similar to that of the U.N. Millennium Development Goals, has expanded worldwide. As an overview of how far-reaching this movement is, as well as the players, watch this video:

The intimate association between the evangelism of the Lausanne Movement and the Emergent Church is witnessed by Christianity Today. This magazine was founded by Billy Graham and friends in 1956 as a mouthpiece for the Evangelical movement. Today it is a mouthpiece for the New Age Emergent Church.

The opening quote by Hwa Yung was taken from the Christianity Today website. He is a minister of the United Methodist Church, and he has authored several articles. In this video, he shares his vision for the future and what it will take to "transform" the Church in Asia. It is important to note some of the New Age words he uses in his video, such as syncretism and dynanism; and in his articles from the transformation journal. The form of Christianity that is being spread by Hwa Yung and the Lausanne Movement is Emergent Church New Age spirituality.

It is great to see conversions being made around the world, but how many of them are genuine? If their converts are being fed with a counterfeit Christianity, won't their conversion be counterfeit as well?

We are warned that some of those who "cast our demons and do any wonderful works" will be told "I never knew you." Jesus listed the "weightier matters" and the "new commandment" as mercy, faith,  justice (dealing righteous judgment), and love - not supernaturalism. We do not find the Apostle Paul being preoccupied with the supernatural gifts, but with holy living, sound doctrine, avoidance of pagan influence, and false ideologies and doctrines.

The bottom line is that Billy Graham is preparing the world, through the Lausanne Movement for the New Age christ - who is the Antichrist. The question I have is, "Will he live long enough to see the fruits of his labor?"

Germans Quit Church During 2010 Sex Scandal

(AP) -- The number of people leaving the Roman Catholic Church in Germany jumped by nearly 50 percent in 2010 as an abuse scandal widened, new data showed Friday.

Some 181,000 people quit their memberships last year, up from 124,000 in 2009, official numbers released by Germany's Roman Catholic Church showed.

Deaths and people turning away from the church heavily outnumbered baptisms, which reached a record low, putting one of the world's wealthiest and most influential Catholic Churches further in decline.

Over the past twenty years, the number of members of Germany's Roman Catholic Church has fallen from 28.3 million to 24.6 million or 30.2 percent of the country's population in 2010, the data showed.

The numbers are easily tracked because members pay a church tax unless they formally leave the congregation - the same reason the declining membership has led to increasing budget shortfalls for the church. (Read more)

2012 Election Stars: Gov. Rick Perry and the TX Satanic Star

In this continuing series, I've been trying to spot which Republicans have been using the satanic star during their campaign. Although Gov. Perry has not officially entered the race, he is considering it.

In the following video, at the 1 minute point, you will see the Texas flag being used in the background with the downward pointing star. Was the placement of the star intentional? Only the cameraman and Gov. Perry's maker know for sure.

(CNN link)

Keep in mind that Gov. Perry has been aligning himself with the New Apostolic groups who believe in Dominion Theology. The event he will be leading in Houston on August 6, is with the "apostolic and prophetic" group, including leaders from Lou Engle's "The Call," Mike Bickle's International House of Prayer, and the American Family Association.

"There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, 
but the end thereof are the ways of death." Prov. 14:12

More on the Knights of Malta
I don't know how accurate this is, but it seems to be the only one available online. The Knights of Malta oath  was taken from the Order of the Jesuits, and similar to the Knights of Columbus, and Rhodes Scholars.

The oath condemns Freemasonry, yet they are both working toward a one world religion. They are both for  world government.Freemason Albert Mackey gives us more insight into the Order.

In a book excerpt, Mackey writes:
"This Order, which at various times in the progress of its history received the names of Knights Hospitalers, Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, Knights of Rhodes, and lastly, Knights of Malta, was one of the most important of the religious and military orders of knighthood which sprang into existence during the Crusades which were instituted for the recovery of the Holy Land. It owes its origin to the Hospitalers of Jerusalem, that wholly religious and charitable Order which was established at Jerusalem, in 1048, by pious merchants of Amalfi for the succor of poor and distressed Latin pilgrims.... [big section on its history over nine centuries]

"The Organization of the Order in its days of prosperity was very complicated, partaking of both a monarchial and a republican character. Over all presided a Grand Master, who, although invested with extensive powers, was still controlled by the legislative action of the General Chapter....

"...There are now two bodies-one Catholic and the other Protestant, but each repudiates the other....
"The degree of Knight of Malta is conferred in the United States as "an appendant Order" in a Commandery of Knights Templar. There is a ritual attached to the degree, but very few are in possession of it, and it is generally communicated after the candidate has been created a Knights Templar...."  ~An Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and Its Kindred Sciences," by Albert G. Mackey, M.D
In research done by by Sherry Shriner, she states:
Those who are presently members of the Knights of Malta must on penalty of death support those policies advocated by the Vatican. It is not hard for them to do this. They BELIEVE in these policies and principles. The policies which are espoused and proclaimed by the office of the Pope are as follows:

1. End of sovereignty for the United States and other countries.
2. End of absolute property rights.
3. End of all gun rights.
4. The new international economic Order (world government).
5. The redistribution of wealth and jobs.
6. Calls for nations to trust the United Nations.
7. Total disarmament.
8. Promote the United Nations as the hope for peace.
9. Promote UNESCO, the deadly educational and cultural arm of the United Nations.
10. Promote interdependence.
11. Support sanctions honoring Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin-the New Age Humanist Priest.
12. Support the belief that the economic principle of traditional Christian or Catholic social doctrine is the economic principle of communism.
13. Promote the Pope as the acting go-between for the United States and the Soviet Union.

Jerusalem: Religious leaders launch interfaith environmental campaign

(AFP) Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders in the Holy Land joined forces Monday to launch a multi-faith environmental campaign, citing religious injunctions to protect the Earth across their three faiths.
Among their plans are the convening of an international conference of religious leaders in New York ahead of the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, a North America public relations campaign and training future clerics on the importance of environmental issues, one of the organizers said.
At the Jerusalem launch of the Interfaith Center for Sustainable Development, Rabbi David Rosen noted that the obligation upon humans to care for their surroundings comes near the very beginning of the Bible.
"That is the original charge in the first chapters of Genesis, given to the first man and woman, not purely to develop, to till the land, but also to protect it ... to conserve it," he said, to nods of agreement from a Roman Catholic bishop and the Palestinian deputy minister of religious affairs.
"The main religions should really study the ecological crisis together, because our destiny is common," Bishop William Shomali said. "If Earth is polluted it is polluted for Muslims, Christians and Jews." (Read more)

Note that the Holy Land was selected for the conference.

Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin & Rick Joyner in Knights of Malta Attire

If you are interested in how all the puzzle pieces of the One World Religion will fit together, you're going to love this post. The Catholic Church regards itself as the only true church, founded by Jesus Christ himself. They believe that since Christ founded just one Church, not many churches, the Roman Catholic Church has as its ultimate objective – through prayer and dialogue - the historically separated bodies may come again to be reunited with it under one faith and doctrine. Ecumenical voices call for Protestants to ‘return home’ to Rome because ‘to belong to Christ is to belong to his church.’

Through the Jesuits and Freemasonry, these Catholic secret society orders have been commissioned to bring the wayward Protestant church back into the Roman Catholic fold.

Based upon Roger Oakland's research:
"Understand The Times has discovered that Calvary Chapel has been, and still does, promote a high officer in the Vatican’s Jesuitical, “Knights of Malta.” Jerry Boykin, former commander of the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center Special Forces Psychological Operations, is that man.

The Order of Malta is a religious order of the Vatican. Jerry Boykin holds the title of Grand Chancellor with the Vatican’s Jesuitical, “Knights of Malta.”

Not only is Jerry Boykin a high officer in the Vatican’s Jesuitical, Knights of Malta, so is Rick Joyner (2nd from right below). The following photographs are taken from Oakland's article.

(YouTube link)

What was the message behind the video? (You must consider that most are connected to Freemasonry.)
  • Time is short before Iran makes their destructive move... against the most powerful nation in the Middle East.
  • The Muslim world is going to do something crazy to bring about a world crisis - in order to hasten end time prophecy.
  • Once the first combatant move is made, it will create a catastrophe.
  • We aren't going to be prepared.
  • Are the Muslims going to annihilate the US and Israel?
  • So, what are we going to do about it?
It is an attempt to get Christians to support a war in the Middle East, and they are using lies and fear tactics to gain that support. They are also looking for support to protect Zionist Israel and bring in the world government. In my opinion, the ecumenical chips will fall into place after this military action. The ecumenical team players are all on the same they are aware of the changes ahead. They have known for years.

Jim Wallis, Soros-Funded Pastors Seek to Yoke the Nation’s Pulpits to Obama’s Agenda

by Ben Johnson

Meeting took place on July 14, 2011

Barack Obama’s White House meeting with members of the Christian organization Circle of Protection on Wednesday has been portrayed as a moment of spiritual solace in the midst of polemical upheaval, or the president’s attempt to seek divine guidance on the stalled debt ceiling negotiations. The media describe the 12 attendees as selfless advocates for the poor and downtrodden. In reality, its organizers admit their goal is “to link our pulpits with the bully pulpit” and “produce the grassroots response” to preserve big government spending. The undertaking is consciously designed to see thousands of pastors repeat the president’s talking points in their churches and have their faithful “contact their congressmen.” Its attendees include George Soros grant recipients, a former left-wing congresswoman who has worked with the Nation of Islam, and a pastor accused of lying to a poor parishioner to get his hands on her last $7,000 before his church declared bankruptcy.

Protection for Programs, Not the Poor
Although the Circle of Protection’s leaders call themselves defenders of poverty-stricken Americans, their pledge clearly states their goal is “to form a Circle of Protection around programs that meet the essential needs of hungry and poor people at home and abroad.” (Emphasis added.) They extend their hedge of protection, not over the poor, but around government redistribution of wealth.

The Circle’s website offers a “summary” of national and international programs that the Christian Left wants to place off-limits to any budget cut. In addition to domestic programs like food stamps, Medicaid, Head Start, the school lunch program, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Low-Income Education and Training, and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) are “Peacekeeping” (UN interventions abroad), “Sustainable International Development Programs” (to assure the global poor comply with environmentalist diktats), and “Global Health” (which often subsidizes abortion under the guise of “reproductive health”).

The group received tremendous attention when they printed a letter entitled, “Listen to Your Pastors,” signed by more than 4,000 clergy nationwide in Wednesday’s edition of Politico. Coincidentally, the letter came the same day 37 Catholic theologians released a similar letter endorsing the Circle of Protection and decrying “reckless calls from Republicans to dismantle our nation’s safety net.”

According to the participants, the White House hastily invited them to the meeting on less than 36-hours notice. The short notice may also explain why the meeting was not listed on the president’s official schedule. (Read more)

 Jim Wallis with Pres. Obama

A later excerpt:
Wallis said the group told President Obama:
that almost every pulpit in America is linked to the Circle of Protection…so it would be a powerful thing if our pulpits could be linked to the bully pulpit here, and together we could say – however else we do this, however we put our fiscal house in order – we can’t do it with more sacrifice from those who are already sacrificing and hurting so much. So, we’d like to link our pulpits with the bully pulpit here and help the American people understand what’s at stake and who’s really going to be impacted by all of this.
Wallis happily noted “we think our pulpits are ready” for this task.

Some in Attendance
  • the Roman Catholic Church 
  • the National Council of Churches
  • the National Association of Evangelicals 
  • the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
  • the Salvation Army 
  • Bread for the World

One Closing Note
Whenever you have people like retired Lt.Gen. Jerry Boykin, Walid Shoebot, and Brannon Howse's conference speaker Usama Dakdok, you have to wonder if they are being used by the government to demonize who the Muslim's are. They do in fact worship a false god and their scriptures are demonic, but so are all cult religions. We, as Christians, should be more focused on reaching out to them, than how we'll protect ourselves against them. They have every right to be upset with our country.

Why Brannon Howse Doesn't Smell Like a Rose - 2/2

Christianity and politics have become intertwined in our culture, more now than ever before. We have been fed heavy doses of viewing our patriotic duty by voting for the candidate that supports initiatives reflecting our Christian worldview.  We have been told that voting for a particular political party, or supporting professing Christian politicians in their quest for office, will hold back the evil agenda of the Democratic party. Where did today's Christian get such a notion?

 Brannon with President Ronald Reagan's Attorney General, Ed Meese

Christian Reconstructionism
Christian Reconstructionism is a religious and theological movement within Evangelical Christianity that calls for Christians to put their faith into action in all areas of life; within the private sphere of life and the public sphere as well. Christian Reconstructionists call for a total infusion of Christianity into government, law and private life. It’s a complete return to “God” in an effort to retake and save the Nation from secularism and free thought. Mainline Christian churches have become a launching pad in the "battle for dominion." 

You can be assured that every time you hear an elected official or candidate speak of “the US as a Christian Nation,” “bringing God back into our country," “the devout Christianity of our Founding Fathers,” “the term ‘Wall of Separation’ is not in the Constitution,” and other key phrases, their objectives are suspect. They base their ill-informed decisions upon misinformation circulated by change agents.

Many see theonomy of Reconstructionism as a significant form of Dominion theology, which is a type of theocracy. Theonomy posits that the Biblical Law is applicable to civil law, and theonomists propose Biblical law as the standard by which the laws of nations may be measured, and to which they ought to be conformed. Many seek a future earthly "Kingdom of God" in which much of the world is converted to Christianity.

Brannon with Oliver North, Freemason/CNP

Although Reconstructionists say their theology and objectives are different than that of Dominion Theology, they are two sides of the same coin. Both of their objectives are to control. They are two groups singing the same tune. This is because many who support the views of Reconstuctionism also use the Seven Mountains of Dominion Theology to plan their takeover.

Reconstructionism + Dominion Theology = War

Brannon with Congressman J.D. Hayworth

Brannon with "Third Way" Newt Gingrich

Religious Right-wing
Republican candidates hope to gain the support of a group of voters called the "Religious Right-wing." The Christian Right-wing is an informal coalition of numerous groups, mainly Evangelicals and Fundamentalists. Often, this is something with which Christians don’t mind being associated. Yet, this association—however honorable it may seem—puts Christians in alliance with some of the nation’s most influential false teachers.

Do you consider yourself as a Right-wing Fundamentalist Christian, or are you a Christian Fundamentalist? If you believe you are a Right-winger, you unknowingly claim to be politically-motivated first and a Christian second.

If you are a Christian Fundamentalist, you uphold traditional Christian beliefs first, in the face of many modernist challenges. Fundamentalists (some, but not all) are marked by their desire to be separate from the affairs of the government, and view themselves as serving the Kingdom of God, not the kingdom of this world. Jesus made it clear when he said, “My kingdom is not of this world.” (John 18:36).

When you look at the big picture, being politically involved prostitutes the role of the Church in the world. The Church simply cannot afford to be a voice for political change; that is not its commission. The Lord Jesus Christ was not crucified to make society more fair.

 Brannon with former CIA Director James Woolsey

Brannon's Involvement with the Government 
"And we beseech you brethren, to know them which labour among you..." (I Thess. 5:12)

As you will see in this series of photographs, Brannon is one of many Christians who are heavily involved with the government and political world. He has a sure presence in Washington, DC. I had already pointed out in part 1 that I believe Brannon may be a Freemason, based upon his Masonic pose in his website portrait, his many Masonic guest conference speakers, and that he could possibly be a change agent for the Council of National Policy.

Although I have no proof, I believe he is being used to help deepen the dividing line between Evangelical and Christian Fundamentalists, only to later silence the fundamentalists. While he has helped to expose error in the Church, he is actually helping to fulfill a more sinister plan. 

He was my hero when he taught against Dominion Theology, but he makes no connection to the similarities of Reconstructionism - and the fact that it's a Christian version of Sharia law. His politics concerning Zionist Israel is no different than that of our Washington representatives.

In Closing
In the following PBS Frontline episode of God in America, the research points directly to the time when politics and religion became intertwined. At this convergence, you will find Billy Graham, then later Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson - all Freemasons.

Watch the full episode. See more FRONTLINE.

Every nation rises and falls according to God’s will, and America will be no different. In the meantime, let us live uprightly, preaching the truth of God’s Word. Whatever form our Government takes, we are called to submit as model citizens, not only to obey, but to obey with a spirit of meekness. Let us honor those in charge (1 Pet. 2:17), that evil might not be spoken concerning Christ. If they that perish criticize us (1 Pet. 2:12), let it be for our faith and not for our politics.

The Occult in "Christian" Music

At its roots, Contemporary Christian music can be traced back to Rock and Roll music. Rock music can be traced to Voodoo magic and worship. Pastor Mike Hoggard goes onto explain that you cannot separate Voodoo from Rock and Roll, just as you cannot separate Rock and Roll from Contemporary Christian music - it is one in the same.

Pastor Mike provides examples of Christian rock, and compares the two - pointing out how the beat of the music is exactly the same. He reveals how Satan is using it as part of his plan of destruction from within our churches, along with some basic occult symbols that can be easily seen and understood.

Why Brannon Howse Doesn't Smell Like a Rose - 1/2

 The index finger pointing to the sky is a Masonic sign that symbolizes 
the Sign of Preservation, a prayer for protection.

Brannon Howse has come to be a favorite of mine over the past year. I went to see him in Chesterfield county, VA, where he spoke in a Southern Baptist church. As I was listening to him speak, I found a kindred spirit in him, in that he is someone who fully understands the state of the Church. In his fast-paced presentation, He was point-on many of the misguided steps of some of the groups where I found fault. He also spoke about a few of the 21 radicals whose worldviews are ruling our world from the grave. He understands the implications and seriousness of the Emergent church, the Purpose Driven seeker-friendly church, those involved in theocracy-driven Dominion theology...he knows about all of it, and he's brave enough to speak about it.

But with closer examination, I believe Brannon isn't the squeaky-clean Christian boy from Tennessee - the one we are being led to believe he is. I have known all along that there are many speakers for his Worldview Weekend seminars who are known Freemasons and Council of National Policy, but I had tried to give him the benefit of the doubt. It's in my nature to do so. I had convinced myself that perhaps he didn't have the ability to discern people. But the mounding evidence of bad alliances has finally worked against him. Let's take a look at some of his accomplishments and his conference speakers.

  • Brannon is President and founder of American Family Policy Institute (AFPI). The AFPI is an affiliate of American Family Association. The AFA president is Don Wildmon/ Council National Policy (CNP). They advocate dominionist teachings, and he is a Christian Zionist. [1][2]
  • David Noebel, President of Summit Ministries, is on the CNP.[3
  • Chuck Missler, was once in senior management of Ford Motor Company (former Nazi alliances), a member of Chuck Smith's ministry team at Calvary Chapel, a member of the CNP, and part of an Illuminati project called SwanSat.[4]
  • Brannon has been a featured speaker at Dr. D. James Kennedy's (CNP and Reconstuctionist) "Reclaiming America Conference" and Beverly Lahaye's "Concerned Women of America." Both Tim and Beverly Lahaye have Masonic connections and CNP.[5]
The Cross and Crown have long been an identifier to fellow Masons. 
  • Gary DeMar, Reconstructionist [6]
  • Kay Arthur, Freemason, feminist [7]
  • Brannon provides his 'Israel can do no wrong' undying support of  the Zionist regime of Israel.
  • He is going to Israel with Jimmy DeYoung, a believer in the Masonic/Jesuit-inspired pre-trib rapture.[8]
  • Brannon uses Dietrich Bonhoeffer as an example of Christian courage in the German church during WWII. Bonhoeffer was the same man who wanted to murder Hitler. If he had read any of Bonhoeffer's books, he would know that he was not a Christian, and he in fact furthered the ecumenical movement. He had Eric Metaxes, writer of the Bonhoeffer book, on his radio program. Metaxes is a man with an agenda. [9][10][11]
  • Josh McDowell, who is a member of CNP, affiliated with Campus Crusade for Christ and Bill Bright. Bill Bright won the ecumenical Templeton Award.
Unfortunately, I could go on and on. Is Brannon innocent and merely guilty by association? Once I read a little more of the New Age book The Aquarian Conspiracy and how to bring about a revolutionary paradigm shift, I was convinced he knew exactly what he's been doing - and I know his angle.

In a post a couple weeks back, I talked about how change agents, such as the Illuminati, have created the "us vs. them" dilemma. In that particular post, I said that they place an intentional wedge between social groups. For instance, it's the wealthy vs. the poor, and the Republicans vs. the Democrats. They also point to social groups that will get the blame for problems for social discontent. I then concluded that their logic of making everyone equal would solve the inequality problem, thus making Socialism the answer to the problem.

It is my opinion, Brannon is using the same methodology to create this "us vs. them" division within the Church, at the same time promoting the Zionist agenda. Using the strategies taught in The Aquarian Conspiracy, transformation within the Church could occur.

Follow my thinking for a moment. Brannon has found a following of Christian Fundamentalists, since they believe the Word of God and are opposed to heretical modernism in theology. As he exposes the false teaching in the Church, it draws more fundamentalists out to listen to his educational ministry. As he brings the troops/followers together, they call out more heretics in the Church. Most preachers of modern teaching don't appreciate being called a heretic and it casts them in a bad light, so there will then be a need to muzzle the Christian Fundamentalist. The elite powers believe that there is no place for intolerance in our country! So, what happens?

Intolerant Christian Fundamentalist + Muzzle = Social Paradigm Shift within the Church

The world hasn't changed the Christian Fundamentalist in the way he thinks, but it has provided the change agents with exactly what they want - the silenced Christian.

I want to say in closing that although I do believe Brannon Howse is a change agent, I don't know for sure if he's a Freemason - but evidence does point to it. I don't know for certain if he's a member of any subversive quasi-Christian group. But until he changes his conference speakers, I'll no longer support his ministry.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin: Father of the New Age Movement

Understanding the New Age Movement is instrumental to understanding the next step in "The Plan." Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a Jesuit priest, helped to reconstruct the Christian faith. In the theology of Teilhard, we are all becoming Christ. He believed that there is no original sin and no need of redemption. He undermined the Christ of the Bible and taught that the god to be worshiped will evolve from the human race. (The New Age christ.)

Transcendentalist cults and Marilyn Ferguson are also mentioned in the video.

New Bible for Public Release: Common English Bible

A new translation of the Bible called the Common English Bible, aimed at making it easier to understand, and crossing denominational lines has hit the shelves. Here are some interesting points about this new version of the Bible:
  • The apocrypha, which is included in Catholic Church and Orthodox Church canons, has been included in this version.
  • The translation is also gender-inclusive. It is a little more politically correct. A little less dominated by male references. What some seeker sensitive Christians call "friendlier."
  • More than 500 persons from 22 faith traditions participated in the development of the CEB translation.
  • Fuller Theological Seminary, an institution known for compromising the Word, was selected as one of two seminaries to approve the translation. Fuller has approved it for use in biblical studies courses for its more than 4,000 students, and particularly for all master's-level instruction in the seminary's School of Theology, School of Psychology, and School of Intercultural Studies on all eight of its campuses.
  • Instead of Jesus being called the “Son of Man,” it now reads “the Human One.” In this version, the phrase, "In the beginning," is replaced with, "When God began to create the heavens and the earth." 
  • The Common English Bible stresses the humanity of Jesus.
  • The publishers involved in CRDC are Abingdon Press, Chalice Press, Church Publishing Inc., and Westminster John Knox Press.

Netanyahu: US, Israel is One and the Same

(CBN link)

The Other Side of the Story
(Press TV) Benjamin Netanyahu spoke via video link to Christians United For Israel (CUFI), which gathered in their thousands to reassert allegiance to Tel Aviv, Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz reported on Wednesday.

"When you support Israel, you don't have to choose between your interests and your values; you get both," he told the mostly-evangelical Christians in the gathering.

"Our enemies think that we are you, and that you are us. And you know something? They are absolutely right," he said.

The US and Israel have each considered the other as its most strategic ally.

Washington has invariably stonewalled the United Nations' actions against Tel Aviv. It also provides Tel Aviv with USD 3 billion in military aid each year.

Israel's Ambassador to the US Michael Oren also addressed the attendees and admired the CUFI's backing of Israel.

He compared the US support of Israel with British military officer Orde Wingate's training of Jewish paramilitary units before Israel's 1948 occupation of the Palestinian land.

The military action, after which Israel proclaimed existence, forced 711,000 Palestinians to leave their homeland. The number of Palestinian refugees is put at over 4.6 million, according to 2008 estimates.

In 1967 and during what became to be known as the Six-Day War, Tel Aviv went on to occupy and later annex the Palestinian territories of the West Bank, East al-Quds and Gaza Strip in a move not recognized by international laws.

Israel carried out a so-called withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, but has been keeping the coastal sliver under recurrent attacks. An all-scale Israeli offensive on Gaza at the turn of 2009 killed more than 1,400 Palestinians. 

Anti-Zionism is beginning to build, but it is not against the Jewish people. The sheeple are beginning to wake up to the fact that our government, and some Christians, have been supporting a country that is brutalizing Palestinian Muslims. They are beginning to wake up to the fact that Israel is working with the US to create the coming world government, and that a world war is part of the satanic global plan spoken about by Freemason Albert Pike. 

Christians should be separate from the affairs of government, and the video should illustrate why. Christian Zionists are unknowingly permitting people to parish everyday because of their lack of knowledge.

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." Hosea 4:6

Christians have no right to align themselves with a political party, because then you end up supporting a blood-thirsty agenda of that government. The good intentioned Christians who attended this rally will grieve one day for their lack of knowledge.

When you look at the big picture, the Republican party is nothing more than a gathering place for satanists. If this statement weren't true, then why do they persist to use this symbol for the Republican National Committee.

Think about it!

Amnesty International Slams Israel ‎

(Press TV) An Amnesty International report charges the Zionist regime with a long list of crimes against the Palestinians in the occupied territories.

The report, "Enduring Occupation, Palestinians under siege in the West Bank" released on Monday accuses Israel of unlawful land grabs and collective punishment of civilians, using excessive and unwarranted force, constructing the apartheid wall, and causing the death of Palestinians with medical emergencies at checkpoints.

"Khaled Daud Faqih was just six months old when he died on 8 March 2007 at an Israeli army checkpoint. His parents, from the village of Kafr 'Ain, had been trying to rush their baby to the nearby hospital in Ramallah in the West Bank, but were forced to wait at the checkpoint by Israeli soldiers," the report begins, adding, "Such cases are neither new nor rare."

"The Palestinian economy has virtually collapsed under the weight of harsh restrictions by Israel. This has only fuelled despair and poverty among Palestinian population," it adds.

The 50-page report describes the so-called security fence as "the wall of death."

"This long barrier is causing massive long-term damage to Palestinian life and is undermining the ability of those living in dozens of villages and communities to realize a wide range of their human rights," the report says.

The Zionist government is approving the construction of new settlements and Palestinian homes are being constantly bulldozed, it continues.

The report calls on Israel to "lift the regime of blockades and restrictions, halt the construction of the wall inside the West Bank and remove the sections already built there and cease the construction and expansion of settlements."

Rupert Murdoch: Bible Mogul

Most people know now that Rupert Murdoch presides over the News Corp media empire, and that he is fighting for his reputation after being forced to sink his scandal-laiden British newspaper News of the World, the most widely read English tabloid in the world. But few people know that Murdoch also owns Zondervan, the world’s largest publisher of Bibles. For 23 years, the News Corp family has included the leading seller of the best-selling book in history.

I know many Christians see the Bible’s publishing stature as validation of their chosen faith, but a savvy entrepreneur could simply see it as a business opportunity. Or perhaps the 80-year-old Murdoch, like any shrewd businessman, wanted diverse investments – a diversity that in his case ranged from a cleavage-saturated tabloid that ran headlines like, “[sleazy title]” to a publisher that offers Little Lamb’s Storybook Bible.

Zondervan, which is based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, also sells Precious Princess Bible, Camo Bible (imagine “Holy Bible” on a camouflage cover), Soul Surfer Bible, Holy Bible: Stock Car Racing and 500 other styles of the holy book. The company owns exclusive North American print rights to the popular New International Version of the Bible which it says has sold over 300 million copies worldwide. Zondervan also publishes books by leading Christian authors like Rick Warren (over 30 million copies of his Purpose Driven Life have been sold), Tim LaHaye, Eugene Peterson, Brian McLaren and Shane Claiborne.(Read more)

Campus Crusade for Christ drops 'Christ'

(USAToday) The global evangelical para-church Campus Crusade for Christ is changing it's name to 'Cru."

The main idea -- according to a look at the change at Christianity Today -- is to evade the problematic word "crusade" and the passe term "campus" (which the massive group known for the Jesus Film, books, tracts and more has long outgrown) and face up to the fact that many of its branches already use different names.
But is Christ now "He who cannot be named," so to speak?

Here's what the soon-to-be-Cru site says:
We were not trying to eliminate the word Christ from our name. We were looking for a name that would most effectively serve our mission and help us take the gospel to the world. Our mission has not changed. Cru enables us to have discussions about Christ with people who might initially be turned off by a more overtly Christian name. We believe that our interaction and our communication with the world will be what ultimately honors and glorifies Christ.
Christianity Today spoke to the leader of the re-branding, Steve Sellers, the CCCI vice president and U.S. national director, who explained that "Crusade"
...has become a flash word for a lot of people. It harkens back to other periods of time and has a negative connotation for lots of people across the world, especially in the Middle East.
And it turns out that "Campus" had become passe. The web site touts that the movement launched by Bill and Vonette Bright as a campus ministry in 1951 is now on 1,029 campuses. The group claims 37,900 new souls for Christ over the last five years.(Read more)

Comment: A social/seeker friendly gospel leads to universalism. Its form of liberalism has a goal to act on the part of Fabian Socialism. "Father of the Social Gospel," Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918), was a Socialist. The views of the Social Gospel movement were given formal expression in 1908 by the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America, now known as the National Council of Churches. Their social gospel is responsible, in part, for the undoing of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Listen to Brannon Howse broadcast and his comments about the recent development.

The Importance of Transcendental Meditation in the Emergent Church

"The goal of the New Age Movement has consistently been to bring in the Age of Aquarius when all will recognize 'the God within themselves.' A major step towards this, in the words of the New Age prophetess Alice Bailey, is 'the regeneration of the churches.' Her vision was that, 'The Christian church, in its many branches, can serve as a St. John the Baptist, as a voice crying in the wilderness, and as a nucleus through which world illumination may be accomplished.' In a word, she desired the time when the 'Christian churches' would embrace the New Age concepts of illumination and self-realization." — Richard Bennett, Can Mysticism Lead to God

Alice Bailey (1880-1949) was an apostle of New Age occultism, and her writings were considered to some to be mystical revelations. She deliberately told the world the path it will be taking, and how it is going to be done--in essence, she provided a combined manifesto and blueprint. The fact that much of what she predicted has actually happened, gives even greater credence that her work really could be the design for the one Paul called "the son of perdition."[1] 

Bailey's writings were influenced by the works of Madame Blavatsky. Bailey taught, as did Blavatsky, a form of universal spirituality; the type that transcended denominational identification, believing that, "Every class of human beings is a group of brothers. Catholics, Jews, Gentiles, occidentals and orientals are all the sons of God." She stated that all religions originate from the same spiritual source, and that humanity will eventually come to realize this; and as they do so, the result will be the emergence of a universal world religion and a "new world order." 

The late Marilyn Ferguson helped to further the efforts of New Age occultism. Ferguson also deliberately told the world the path it will be taking, and how the New Age Movement would conquer the world. As you read her book, you will see how she unashamedly opens the plan on how to create a world revolution in a matter of fact manner. She believed her plan would be a bloodless one, because of disenchantment with the current culture. Using the 60s as an example, she said that it was ripe for social turbulence, because of impotence of government, schools, medicine, church, business. She believed this same discontent will become ripe again, and the world will be willing to accept the philosophies of the New Age Movement. 

The way her book was written, it appears that this discontent was intentionally engineered. Especially when you consider the new truth movement, and hidden political, financial, education, health and business corruption that has been coming to the surface over the past few years. As for a bloodless revolution, other New Age writing indicates otherwise.

As we continue... in Marilyn's book Aquarian Conspiracy, from the chapter titled The American Matrix for Transformation, Ferguson explains how transcendentalism was a logical extension of the American Revolution - because it led to spiritual liberation, a freedom guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. It was because of this freedom that cults rose up during the 1800s, and were able to strengthen and find disciples. 

Transcendentalism is a group of ideas in literature and philosophy that developed in the 1830s and 1840s as a protest against the general state of culture and society, and the state of intellectualism. Among the transcendentalists' core beliefs are in an ideal spirituality that "transcends" the physical and empirical and is realized only through the individual's intuition, rather than through the doctrines of established religions.

Most of the cults during this era were part of the Transcendental Movement, such as: Christian Science, Swedenborgian Church, New Thought, and Swedenborg, just to mention a few.

These cults borrowed from the Eastern religions, and adapted the material to suit the Western mind, which were materialistic, and worldly-centered. So, transcendental meditation was presented, not as a religious exercise involving initiation into Hinduism, but as an exercise for relaxation. Yoga traveled a similar path. It was presented as a merely physical exercises to relax the body, and enhance health. Because of the western presentation of these eastern spiritual exercises, vast numbers of Christians have involved themselves in them, some claiming to have 'christianized' them.[2]

Thus, many involved in the Transcendental Movement are also involved in Transcendental Meditation (TM). TM helps the practitioner to enter altered states of consciousness, which leads to a "higher" self, often called the "divine-within." In this altered state of consciousness, "all is One" -- only one essence in the universe, everyone and everything being a part of that essence.[3] The TM practitioner can meet angels or demonic (lying) spirits in this state when they have revelations in the spirit. It is my belief that since this is the overwhelming message communicated to all those who participate in TM, the experience will lead to the acceptance of the one world religion and world government. This can be communicated subconsciously by spirits, or by spiritual blindness caused by TM.

This desire by Rick Warren and the Emergent churches to teach TM opens the door to these spirits and the teachings of the New Age Movement. They are intentionally preparing their churches to accept the one world religion and the world government. This confirms Alice Bailey's statement concerning the use of the Church to be a vehicle to bring in its evil agenda.

Muslim Threat Forces Glenn Beck Rally off Temple Mount

Beck said on his program, “When we heard about the Muslims, we knew there was trouble… The first time I was in Israel, they were throwing stones down on the heads of Israelis praying at the Western Wall. When I heard ’40,000,’ my security said, 'Your back is in their direction, and these people play for keeps.”

Long story short, they are looking for another venue.

Os Hillman: Change Agent in the Church

Historically, change agents in the Church have meant bad news to the Christian church. The change brought into the Church has typically been unbiblical and makes certain doctrine more palatable to the fence-sitters.

Os Hillman, the author of Change Agents, describes what is contained in his book. He teaches Dominion Theology of the Seven Mountains Mandate, which is a plan to create a theocracy worldwide.

(Vimeo link)

He has also made a guest appearance on American Family Association radio program. This is a radio station that sounds Baptist, but has Dominionist overtones.

(YouTube link)

Os Hillman works with Lance Wallnau to bring about revolution in the Church. He is a major leader in the marketplace transformation movement, a key area of focus for Dominionism to be imposed upon other nations of the Earth via corporate business mechanisms. This has to do with changing governments of other nations. This isn't Dominionism Lite!

Where did all of this Kingdom Now/Dominion Theology come from?

Based on research by Herescope:
"Three decades ago, two 'generals' in the Christian faith... Loren Cunningham, of Youth With A Mission, and Bill Bright, of Campus Crusade For Christ... were given a simultaneous supernatural message for each other. They both saw 7 strategic mountains, or 'mind molders', that shape the culture of every nation. God told each of them to inform the other that if they could capture these strategic places, they would reap the harvest of nations. These 7 mountains of societal influence are...

To understand the rationale that undergirds this marketplace dominionism "mandate," read the statement by Os Hillman in a letter to his supporters in April:

"When Jesus died on the cross the Bible says that 'the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost' (Luke 19:10). That means we are to restore the spiritual foundations that Jesus laid all the way back to the Garden of Eden. It is through faith in Jesus and bringing His Kingdom into the seven key areas of society that we will do this.

"When God called the people of Israel out of Egypt to form a new nation in the Promised Land, He told them that they would be the head --- not the tail --- if they obeyed the commands of the Lord. He told them to divide the land into seven parts (Joshua 18:5). They would also have to displace seven enemies that currently resided in the Promised Land."
Herescope goes onto explain that, "This heretical teaching misapplies Jesus' salvation of lost souls with "restoring" what was "lost" at the Fall of Man. It negates the work of the Cross. It falsely empowers man to complete the work that Jesus didn't finish, which is utter blasphemy. At the foundation of this Dominionist heresy is the belief that man can return to Paradise conditions in Genesis 1 by building the Kingdom of God on Earth. Nowhere is this taught by Jesus. This is not what the Kingdom of God is all about."

According to Hillman's bio, he was a member of Chuck Smith's church. Chuck was formerly ordained as a pastor by the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. Aimee Semple McPherson founded the Foursquare Church in 1927, and impacted many notable pastors like Benny Hinn and Word-Faith teachers. Aimee admits to being influenced by the Latter Rain Movement, also known as the Third Wave Movement.

The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit is a Christian theological theory first introduced by C. Peter Wagner to describe what he believed to be three historical periods of the activity of the Holy Spirit in the 20th century and beyond. Although Aimee McPherson was influenced by Catholic clergy in her church meetings and ministry, I'm not absolutely convinced this Third Wave is the same as our discussion from the other day, just similar in name.
