Pope Francis Issues The Order Creating Global Chrislam Committee To Implement His Decree On ‘Human Fraternity For World Peace’ Signed In UAE Back In February

The members of the seven member Catholic and Muslim commission include Pope Francis’s personal secretary, Fr. Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, and the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Archbishop Miguel Angel Ayuso Giuxot. In a statement on Monday, Aug. 26, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said that Pope Francis “encourages the efforts of the Committee to spread knowledge of the Document; he thanks the United Arab Emirates for the concrete commitment shown on behalf of human fraternity and he expresses the hope that similar initiatives can spring up throughout the world.”

This latest Chrislam move by the Roman pope is a bold shot across the bow in creating the end times One World Religion spoken of in the book of Revelation in chapters 17 and 18

If you remember we had told you back in February that Pope Francis went to the United Arab Emirates and signed a covenant called “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together”, which we told you at the time was the official declaration of the start of the One World Religion of Chrislam. Since that time not much has happened in the way of progress until last week. What happened last week? The implementation of the covenant.

“Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Isaiah 28:15,16 (KJV)

What other popes have talked about, Pope Francis is bringing to pass, with amazing progress in assembling the end times religion of Chrislam. The Roman Catholic Religion is a counterfeit of biblical Christianity, but that’s exactly what is needed to bring about the arrival of the counterfeit Messiah of Antichrist. You are watching Mystery, Babylon rising before your very eyes, as she prepares to take her prophesied place on the end times stage.

“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.” Revelation 17:5,6 (KJV)

Could Pope Francis be the one? I don’t know but I know this much. He has gone further than any other pope before him in the 1,700 year history of the Catholic Church towards reaching that goal.

Bishop Schneider says Vatican is betraying ‘Jesus Christ as the only Savior of mankind’

FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: Last week, the Vatican announced that a multi-faith “Higher Committee” had been established in the United Arab Emirates to implement the “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together,” which Pope Francis signed on Feb. 4, 2019, in Abu Dhabi, together with Ahmad el-Tayeb, Grand Imam al-Azhar, during a three-day apostolic visit to the Arabian Peninsula.

Members of the seven member Catholic and Muslim commission include Pope Francis’s personal secretary, Fr. Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, and the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, Archbishop Miguel Angel Ayuso Guixot.

In a statement on Monday, Aug. 26, Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said that Pope Francis “encourages the efforts of the Committee to spread knowledge of the Document; he thanks the United Arab Emirates for the concrete commitment shown on behalf of human fraternity and he expresses the hope that similar initiatives can spring up throughout the world.”

Controversial document

The Abu Dhabi document drew controversy for stating that a “pluralism and diversity” of religions is “willed by God.”

The passage inciting controversy reads:

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept.

On March 1, 2019, during an ad limina visit of the bishops of Central Asia to Rome, Bishop Schneider, whose diocese is located in a predominantly Muslim nation, expressed  concern about this formulation to Pope Francis. The Pope said that the phrase in question on the “diversity of religions” meant “the permissive will of God,” and he gave explicit permission to Bishop Schneider and the other bishops present to quote his words.

Bishop Schneider in turn asked the Pope to clarify the statement in an official manner. Pope Francis appeared to offer an informal clarification at his Wednesday general audience on April 3, 2019, but no official clarification or correction to the text has been given to date.

NATION STATE: At The Apostolic Palace, The King Of Vatican City Calls For A One World Government More Powerful Than The United Nations

Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences within the Apostolic Palace. Francis demanded that a new “supranational, legal constituted body” enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (IE population control) and their climate change policies.

by Geoffrey Grider May 3, 2019

Rather than calling for the outright abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted they all be subjected to external, global governing authorities.

I am beginning to think that Pope Francis, who is also the ruling king of the Roman Vatican City state nation, is perhaps getting ready to make a real power move soon. From his throne at the papal Apostolic Palace, King Francis spoke frankly of his desire to see global rule on a far-greater scale and scope than that of the United Nations, and the end of borders, walls and nationalism. To boil it down into only 3 words, King Francis called for a One World Government.

“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” Revelation 13:4,5 (KJV)

When I first started reading the ‘Left Behind‘ novels back in the mid-90’s, yes I understood it was based on bible prophecy but when I looked around at the world around me, it seemed more like fantasy. Flash-forward 23 years later to 2019, and I am struggling to tell the difference between ‘Left Behind’ and the evening news. That’s how close we are to the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, and the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble after that.

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:11 (KJV)

Yes sir, King Francis edges closer and closer every day to pulling that prophecy trigger that he was born to pull. All I can say is “pull it, baby, pull it!”, and let’s get this thing started. I am ready to go., hope y’all are as well. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines now boarding…are you ready for what comes next?

“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)

The bible says in Revelation 13 that the Antichrist will control both the world by the dual means of a global One World Religion, and a global One World Government. In Revelation 17 it tells us that that system which is called a ‘harlot’, ‘mystery’, and is likened to ancient Babylon, is the Roman Catholic Church.

Pope Francis Calls For One World Government, Attacks Border Walls and National Sovereignty

FROM PULPIT & PEN: Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences within the Apostolic Palace. Francis demanded that a new “supranational, legal constituted body” enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (IE population control) and their climate change policies.

In other words, the United Nations isn’t globally powerful enough, and another global body is needed to govern the nations.

The plenary session was entitled “Nation, State, Nation-State,” and included speakers from within Romanism who demanded that all Nation States be governed by a global, one-world government. Speakers included Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, a Marxist and German climatologist who claimed that without global government the world’s climate would be irrevocably harmed and Cardinal Walter Kasper who spoke on Social Justice.

Rather than calling for the outright abolition of Nation States, the Pope insisted they all be subjected to external, global governing authorities.

The Pope said, “Individual nations must be given the power to operate as far as they can reach…but groups of neighboring nations — as is already the case — can strengthen their cooperation by attributing the exercise of certain functions and services to intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.”

Francis claimed that this global government was necessary to ensure the welfare of migrants and the “universal common good.” Francis went on to deride nations that have border walls.

The Pope commented, “…The Church has warned persons, peoples and governments about deviations from this attachment when it is about excluding and hating others, when it becomes conflictual nationalism that builds walls, indeed even racism or anti-Semitism.”

He continued, “The Church observes with concern the re-emergence, almost everywhere in the world, of aggressive currents towards foreigners, especially immigrants, as well as that growing nationalism which neglects the common good

CHRISLAM RISING: French President Macron Says The Roman Catholic Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris Should Be Rebuilt With Muslim Minarets To ‘Reflect Diversity’ Of France

by Geoffrey Grider April 26, 2019

French President Emmanuel Macron says the Roman Catholic Notre Dame cathedral should be rebuilt in line with diversity; architect suggests an Islamic minaret be included

With each passing day, it begins to appear more and more that the spectacular fire that engulfed the Roman Catholic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris was set intentionally. President Emmanuel Macron is now recommending the structure be rebuilt with Islamic minarets to ‘reflect the diversity’ of France. Kinda crazy, yes? Well, actuall, no. It makes perfect sense.

“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.” Revelation 18:9,10 (KJV)

It makes perfect sense when you jog your memory just a tad back to February of this year, where we witnessed the Roman Catholic Pope Francis traveled to Abu Dhabi where he met with the leader of Sunni Islam, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb. What did he do there? Well, after Pope Francis kissed Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb on the mouth, the two signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths. I do love me a little Rev 17 in the morning to get my day going, how about you?

“The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.” from the Catechism of the Catholic Church 841

Forgot about that, didn’t ya? That’s why NTEB is here, to remind you and help you to connect the end times dots. Almost 7 weeks to the day that Pope Francis signs a covenant with a main leader of Islam, one of the world’s greatest symbols of Roman Catholicism suddenly burns. Now it will be rebuilt to celebrate the pope’s One World Religion of Chrislam by topping it with Muslim minarets to show that it was conquered.

The burning down of Notre Dame was symbolic of the steady burn of French culture, as the country’s globalist leaders continue to bow to everything multiculturalism has to offer.

FROM JIHAD WATCH: France flagged “more than 78,000 people” as jihadist security threats in 2017; three churches a day are attacked there; anti-Semitism is so prevalent (and violent) in France that it prompted the President of the Confederation of Jews in France to conclude that “in a few decades, there will be no Jews in France.”

But none of these facts have troubled globalist Emmanuel Macron (and company), whose focus is on making everyone feel welcome in France, no matter what. Never mind those who choose not to integrate. This can be partially explained due to the fact that Macron does not believe that there is anything substantial to integrate into. He once declared that there is “no such thing” as a true Frenchman or true Dane. So it follows that Macron has a few ideas of his own about the rebuilding of the Notre Dame cathedral that would reflect his undying commitment to “diversity,” even if they are callous toward Christians and those who respect France’s heritage. Macron does not believe that the rebuilding of the Notre Dame should be intended to restore the glory of the ancient Gothic cathedral (with the painstaking labor that went into it); instead, Macron wants it to be recreated to be “consistent with our modern, diverse nation.

Now what might that mean? Here’s an indicator: an architect has proposed that the new structure include a minaret. A minaret is a type of tower built into mosques as a visual focal point and used for the Islamic call to prayer. The architect sees fit to “memorialize Algerians who protested the French government in the 1960s” since “these victims of the state could be memorialized by replacing the spire with – why not? – a graceful minaret.” Given the obscene insensitivity displayed by Macron and others, it would come as no surprise if indeed a minaret were installed at Notre Dame, as a declaration of victory over France’s history and democracy.

Macron undoubtedly knows that Islamic countries — among others — value their own history and culture, but he has no such respect for French culture, and so it would follow that he would believe that there is no culture in France to protect. The burning down of Notre Dame was symbolic of the steady burn of French culture, as the country’s globalist leaders continue to bow to everything multiculturalism has to offer.

“Macron says Notre Dame should be rebuilt consistent with the modern, diverse France – and architects suggest a glass roof, steel spire and minaret,” Voice of Europe, April 23, 2019:

Macron’s initial promise to restore the magnificent cathedral to its former glory has been shoved aside. Now he says it will be rebuilt “consistent with our modern, diverse nation”, and at the same time the French Government has announced an international competition to redesign the Notre Dame spire.

After the announcement designers haven’t missed the opportunity to respond with their ideas, proposing that it should not be faithfully restored, but rebuilt with “contemporary” features such as a glass roof, steel spire, or even a minaret.

The Telegraph published an article claiming it would be a “travesty” to restore Notre Dame, while Rolling Stone quoted a Harvard architecture historian as saying that the burning of a building “so overburdened with meaning… feels like an act of liberation.”

Lord Norman Foster, arguably Britain’s most famous modern architect, has unveiled a design topping the ancient cathedral with a glass and steel canopy with a featureless glass and steel spire, which he describes as “a work of art about light” which would be “contemporary and very spiritual and capture the confident spirit of the time”.

Ian Ritchie, a modern architect most famous for the so-called Spire of Dublin – a metal spike erected in the Irish capital – is mulling a proposal along similar lines, which he describes as “a refracting, super-slender reflecting crystal to heaven” or a “beautiful contemporary tracery of glass crystals and stainless steel” – i.e. a featureless glass and steel spire.
Perhaps most controversial is a proposal in Domus, the architecture magazine, by Tom Wilkinson, for the fallen spire to be replaced with an Islamic minaret

Barna Group Shock Poll Reveals That 47% Of All Christian Millennials Believe That Witnessing The Gospel And Evangelizing Is Wrong

In a study entitled “Reviving Evangelism” the Barna Group, a research center that tracks faith and spirituality in American life, reported that 94% of practicing American Christian agreed that “the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus.” On the other hand, the same study found that 47% of Christian millennials believe that evangelism is wrong.

by Geoffrey Grider February 17, 2019

The vast majority of practicing Christian millennials believe that knowing Jesus is “the best thing that could happen to someone,” while nearly half believe evangelizing is wrong, a study conducted by the Barna Group reported.

The command of our apostle Paul, rightly divided and dispensationally correct, is that all born again Christian are to preach, teach and otherwise share the gospel of the grace of God with as many people as is humanly possible. It is a theme and a subject he touches on over, and over and over again. However, your average Laodicean end times church spends precious little time on the doctrines that Jesus and the Holy Spirit gave to Paul during those three and a half years of his “christian college” education in the Damascus wilderness.

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:1-5 (KJV)

But here at NTEB, we are not confused about the Bible’s crystal-clear command to preach the gospel while breath remains within us. We preach the gospel of the grace of God 24 hours a day everyday through this site, as well as preaching on the streets and in the jails. If you are waiting for the oft-promised ‘end times revival’, you might be waiting quite a long time. But guess what? You can have your very own personal revival that can begin right here and right now! Order yourself a box of our gospel tracts at the bottom of the article, and start evangelising the lost you come in contact with on a daily basis.

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 (KJV)

Only one life, ’twill soon be past. And only what’s done for Christ will last. Get busy, Christian, and be about the Father’s business. For the night is coming when no man can work.

EVANGELIZING IS WRONG, SAY NEARLY HALF OF CHRISTIAN MILLENNIALS

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: In a study entitled “Reviving Evangelism” the Barna Group, a research center that tracks faith and spirituality in American life, reported that 94% of practicing American Christian agreed that “the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus.”

On the other hand, the same study found that 47% of Christian millennials believe that evangelism is wrong.

Almost half of Millennials (47%) agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith. This is compared to a little over one-quarter of Gen X (27%), and one in five Boomers (19%) and Elders (20%). (Though Gen Z teens were not included in this study, their thoroughly post-Christian posture will likely amplify this stance toward evangelism.) source

Specifically, they believe that it’s “wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes they will one day share the same faith.”  Part of their unwillingness to share their faith, a different Barna study called “Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age” reported, seems to be that the generation entitled millennials believe that people are more likely now to be offended by someone who shares their faith

Vatican Officially Releases Chrislam Logo For Pope Francis Upcoming ‘Servant Of Hope’ Tour To The Muslim Nation OF Morocco

The official logo of the Pope’s visit was chosen from about 50 entries in a competition. An explanatory note accompanying the logo’s release says that a cross and a crescent in the logo are symbols of Christianity and Islam which highlight the interreligious relations between Christians and Muslims. In fact, during the 2-day trip, Pope Francis will meet the leader of Moroccan Muslims, 800 years after the meeting between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Al-Malik al-Kāmil of Egypt.

by Geoffrey Grider February 10, 2019

The Vatican released the logo for Pope Francis’ Apostolic Journey to Morocco, whose theme is hope. “Servant of Hope” is the theme of the Pope’s visit to Morocco on March 30-31.

Catholics have gotten mad at me over the years whenever I talk about how the Vatican is pushing the hybrid bastard religion of Chrislam, which is to say the merging of apostate Christianity with the religion of castaway Ishmael, who is the father is Islam. Yet just this week, the Vatican rolled out a new logo for Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the Muslim nation of Morocco, and what is the design? Chrislam.

“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.” Revelation 17:1,2 (KJV)

The pope’s new logo shows a New Age style cross that is encircled about with the crescent moon of Islam, with the colors of yellow and white for the Vatican, and red and green for Islam. That, my friends, is not only the pope’s new logo, it will also serve as the official logo for Chrislam. I am sure Rick Warren had a hand in all this, just gotta find a link to prove it. If you come across one please send it to me.

Vatican releases logo for Pope Francis’ visit to Morocco

FROM VATICAN NEWS: The Holy Father is making the Apostolic Visit in response to the invitation of King Mohammed VI and the Bishops of the country.  The trip to the Muslim-majority nation includes the cities of Rabat and Casablanca, and will be the Pope’s 26th outside Italy.

Logo design

The official logo of the Pope’s visit was chosen from about 50 entries in a competition. An explanatory note accompanying the logo’s release says that a cross and a crescent in the logo are symbols of Christianity and Islam which highlight the interreligious relations between Christians and Muslims.

In fact, during the 2-day trip, Pope Francis will meet the leader of Moroccan Muslims, 800 years after the meeting between St. Francis of Assisi and Sultan Al-Malik al-Kāmil of Egypt.

The logo has the colours of the two countries: green and red for Morocco, yellow and white (background) for the Vatican.

Under Pope Francis’ name is the motto of the visit: “Servant of Hope” because the Pope is known as the Servant of the Servants of God.  The motto is also the title of the pastoral letter that the Regional Episcopal Conference of North Africa (known by its French acronym CERNA) gave to Pope Francis during its last ‘ad limina ’ visit to Rome in 2015.

“Morocco” is written in Arabic to honour the country that is hosting the Pope.

Interreligious dialogue

Prior to the Morocco visit, the Pope is scheduled to make a trip to the United Arab Emirates on February 3-5.

Addressing the Diplomatic Corps on Monday in the Vatican, Pope Francis said that his visit to the 2 predominantly Muslim countries, “represent two important opportunities to advance interreligious dialogue and mutual understanding between the followers of both religions, in this year that marks the eight-hundredth anniversary of the historic meeting between Saint Francis of Assisi and Sultan al-Malik al-Kāmil.”

The Pope And Islam’s Most Important Imam Just Signed A Covenant That Pushes Us Much Closer To A One World Religion

A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it.  Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood”.  But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims.  According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”… 

The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.

Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.

In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.

According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went in to the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray” with one another…

The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.” “If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated”, he said. The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”

There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.

Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity.  Here is just one example…

We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.

On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”…

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.

We know that the elite want a one world religion, but to see the most important clerics from both Catholicism and Islam make such a dramatic public push for it is absolutely stunning.

BORN ALIVE ABORTIONS: Days After Gov. Cuomo Signs Extreme Baby Killing Bill, Democrats In Virginia And Rhode Island Want To Enact Similar Laws

by Geoffrey Grider January 30, 2019

A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo set in motion a macabre wheel of death when he signed in to law the New York  Reproductive Health Act last week. At the moment he did, it officially made New York state the only state in the country to authorize the killing of a born alive baby. But what a difference 7 days make.

“And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.” Genesis 21:16 (KJV)

Now the Democratic governors of both Virginia and Rhode Island are saying that they will sign bills that do everything that New York’s Act does, and then go a few, pardon the pun, baby steps further. In 2019, The Democratic Party has rebranded itself as the ‘Merchant of Death‘ Party by making the mind-numbing leap from abortion pre-born babies in the womb to slicing their throats after they are born alive and healthy.

In the 1991 movie, ‘What About Bob?’, Bill Murray plays Bob Wiley, a hilarious multi-phobic patient of psychiatrist Dr. Leo Marvin, played by Richard Dreyfuss. A highlight of the movie is the ‘death therapy’ protocol designed by Dr. Marvin in a desperate attempt to rid himself of his patient Bob Wiley. But there is nothing funny about using the ‘death therapy‘ now being pushed so hard by the Democrats to rid themselves of babies that they created but no longer want.

Northam on Abortion Bill: Infant Could Be Delivered and Then ‘Physicians and the Mother’ Could Decide If It Lives

FROM WASHINGTON FREE BEACON: Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D.) commented Wednesday about a controversial 40-week abortion bill and in so doing said the law allows an abortion to take place after the infant’s birth.

“If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” Northam said, alluding to the physician and mother discussing whether the born infant should live or die.

A Democratic lawmaker in the Virginia House of Delegates proposed a bill Tuesday that would allow abortions through the end of the third trimester of pregnancy. The video of Delegate Kathy Tran presenting her bill led to an exchange where she admitted that her bill would allow for a mother to abort her child minutes before giving birth. READ MORE

Catholic Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo Vows to Sign Bill Legalizing Abortions Up to Birth

FROM LIFE NEWS: Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo is pushing a radical pro-abortion bill in her state while claiming to be Catholic. The legislation, which contradicts the teachings of the Catholic Church, would legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth. A state House committee is expected to vote on the bill today.

Earlier this month, Raimondo promised to support the pro-abortion bill in her State of the State address,NBC 10 reports.

“Let’s make this the year we codify women’s access to reproductive health care here in Rhode Island,” Raimondo said.

The Rhode Island Reproductive Health Care Act, co-sponsored by state Sen. Gayle L. Goldin and Rep. Edith H. Ajello, would strip away even minor, common-sense abortion regulations – ones that a strong majority of Americans support. It would eliminate all protections for unborn babies and codify Roe v. Wade into state law in case the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the ruling.

The bill appears to allow restrictions for late-term abortions, but it adds a broad “health” exception for abortions after viability. The exception would allow women to abort unborn babies up to nine months of pregnancy for basically any “health” reason, including “age, economic, social and emotional factors,” a definition given by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case Doe v. Bolton

Tel Aviv Skyscraper: Remake of Tower of Babel or Preparation for Third Temple?

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz January 28, 2019 , 12:45 pm

“See, a time is coming—declares Hashem—when the city shall be rebuilt for Hashem from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate;” Jeremiah 31:37 (The Israel Bible™)

One of the largest real-estate developers in Israel revealed plans for the soon-to-be tallest building in Israel that looks surprisingly similar to images of what the Tower of Babel may have looked like. But a closer look reveals the new building may be much more, what one rabbi thinks could be a dry-run for building the Third Temple.

The Azrieli Group, an Israeli real estate and holding company, announced their plan to build Israel’s tallest building as an addition to their already impressive Azrieli Center Complex in Tel Aviv. Topping out at 91 stories and reaching 1,150 feet toward the heavens, it is estimated that the Spiral Tower will take six years to complete at an estimated cost of $666 million. The new tower will take its place next to the iconic circle, square and triangle towers that make up the Azrieli Complex. By building the Spiral Tower, the Azrieli Group will outdo itself as they built the current tallest building in Israel, The Azrieli Sarona Tower which stands 782 feet high with 53 floors, just two years ago.

The plans are ambitious, with around 150,000 square meters containing commercial space, offices, residences, and a hotel. Six underground parking levels, covering an area of 45,000 square meters, will be built at the base of the structure, in addition to a commercial floor connected directly to the light rail. The tower’s peak will include space for conferences and meetings, recreational space, and a 360-degree view of Tel Aviv and the surrounding area. it is predicted that approximately 100,000 people will pass through the center every day.

The unique design was produced by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), a New York-based architecture firm which is responsible for five of the 10 tallest skyscrapers in the world. According to the press release, the architects took their inspiration from nature as well as Jewish heritage.

“The tower was planned and developed in a unique geometric shape, never before seen in Israel, which captures the eye and the imagination. The main challenge for the initiators and architects was to create harmony between the three iconic towers that form Azrieli Center and the new tower, an impressive, one-of-a-kind structure which stands on its own. The tower’s design takes inspiration from the twists of a snail’s shell, attempting to imitate their natural form. The design also draws inspiration from ancient biblical scrolls and the way they unfurl upwards.”

More cynical critics of the design might draw a comparison between the elegant design presented by the developers and certain depictions of the Biblical Tower of Babel. Though the Biblical account contains no details other than it builders aspirations for it to reach great heights.

And they said, “Come, let us build us a city, and a tower with its top in the sky, to make a name for ourselves; else we shall be scattered all over the world.” Genesis 11:4

Traditional Jewish sources provide additional details. Midrash (homiletic teachings) described “an idol on the top holding a sword, so that it may appear as if it intended to war with God.” The Midrash also described a structure built on tall columns designed to protect the tower from another divine flood.

Some modern scholars have associated the Tower of Babel with known structures, notably the Etemenanki, a ziggurat dedicated to the Mesopotamian god Marduk built by Babylonian King Nabopolassar in 610 BCE. Indeed, the Spiral Tower Design closely resembles a ziggurat, an ancient structure from the Middle East built as a terraced compound of successively receding stories or levels. at the top of each ziggurat was a shrine. Also, similar to the Azrieli Towers,  each ziggurat was part of a larger complex that included a courtyard, storage rooms, bathrooms, and living quarters, around which a city was built.

Rabbi Yisrael Rosenberg is an author who has a powerful connection to the spiritual implications of construction. His daytime job is as a tour guide for the Western Wall tunnels.

“The main of the sin connected to the Tower of Babel was not in their action but in their intention. The bottom line is that the intent of the builders and the architects of the Azrieli tower is l’shem shamayim (in the name of heaven). The fact that they envisioned a Torah scroll while designing the building is remarkable. Even if it was just for beauty, beauty can be to praise God’s creation.”

Rosenberg noted that the builders of the Tower of Babel came together to challenge heaven, hence their punishment was to be divided and scattered.

“Tel Aviv needs high towers since it is becoming densely populated,” he said. “This is a Tikkun (fixing) for what happened after the Tower of Babel. It allows people to be together in Israel.”

He also noted that for the 2,000 years of exile, Jews excelled in many fields but were less represented in architecture and land development.

“Everything we learn about construction in Israel is just one step away from the Beit Hamikdash,” the rabbi said. “Just like Solomon’s Temple, the Third Temple will be with the agreement and blessings of every nation in the world and it will be the greatest construction project ever seen. We need to learn how to lead the world in this project.”

United Methodist Church Next In Line To Fall As General Assembly Set To Unveil The ‘One Church Plan’ To Include Unrepentant LGBTQ Members

It’s no secret that the United Methodist Church has been apostate for years. They do not stand on the Scriptures as their authority nor do they hold to an orthodox view of Christ–to them God is a sin-affirming God who accepts people just how they are without repentance. However, officially, the United Methodist Church currently does not allow the ordination of openly LGBTQ clergy–but that appears to be about to change.

by Geoffrey Grider January 25, 2019

February 23 marks the date for a special session of the General Assembly of the United Methodist Church, a gathering of denominational leaders, bishops, and clergy to deliberate the issue of homosexuality and other sexual perversions present in the church.

One by one, we are watching all the Christian denominations bow to the pressure of the LGBTQ Movement. The Presbyterians have already fallen, most of the non-denominationals are lukewarm already, and even some of the Baptist branches are beginning to experience trouble with their Pilot Light. The gospel is just too hard, it offends too many people, and church just cannot grow by preaching Biblical truth. This is exactly what Jesus meant when He gave this Revelation prophecy regarding the professing church to John back in 96 AD about the coming Church of Laodicea. It’s here.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” Revelation 3:14-18 (KJV)

The end times are indeed upon us, and no, praying for it to “go away” will not work. The current rising darkness is what the Bible says would happen in the last days before the Pretribulation of the Church. Why do you think the Church is taken out? One reason is it has ceased to be salt and light, and therefore has no use any longer. But you can still be on fire for God,  you can still witness and see souls get saved. Get busy, the Master approaches!

United Methodist Church Gearing Up For Full and Official Affirmation And Inclusion of LGBTQ Members And Same-Sex Weddings

FROM REFORMATION CHARLOTTE: A Council of Bishops was asked by the General Assembly in 2016 to begin putting together an LGBTQ inclusion plan for the denomination and in 2018, the One Church Plan was unveiled and has the majority support of the denomination’s bishops. Next month, the plan will officially be voted on and is expected to pass nearly unanimously.

It’s no secret that the United Methodist Church has been apostate for years. They do not stand on the Scriptures as their authority nor do they hold to an orthodox view of Christ–to them God is a sin-affirming God who accepts people just how they are without repentance.

However, officially, the United Methodist Church currently does not allow the ordination of openly LGBTQ clergy–but that appears to be about to change.

The one church plan, touted as “supported by the majority of bishops,” includes several key affirmations of homosexuality and other sexually deviant behaviors as acceptable and normal within the church. According to the website,

This plan, preferred by a majority of the Council of Bishops, would remove restrictive language from the Book of Discipline that prohibits same-gender weddings in UMC properties and ordination of “self-avowed practicing homosexuals.” It would add language to protect churches and pastors who choose not to allow same-gender marriages.

While there may be some individual local churches who choose not to fully apostatize on the LGBTQ issue, the issue here is a removal of the biblical restriction of sin-infested clergy in the church. In other words, you may be in open rebellion to God and still be fully included and accepted as a leader–both at the local level and the denominational level–so long as your congregation is cool with it. And let’s just be real, if you’re in the UMC, you’re most likely cool with it.

The justification for calling the special assembly lies in their faulty theological understanding of God’s holiness and man’s sinfulness.

We are aware that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) persons exist in every nation and every culture in the world, with varying degrees of openness, acceptance, and freedom […] There are, and have been, LGBTQ persons serving at all levels of leadership in the UMC, as laity and clergy. Currently they suffer as they are unable to live into God’s calling on their lives to ordination or to lay leadership.”

The idea is that homosexuals “suffer” when they’re not allowed ordination as clergy. But the Scriptures clearly teach that sexual immorality is the judgment of God and not necessarily the cause (Romans 1). The reason they suffer isn’t because they can’t be ordained, it’s because they are in open rebellion to God and God has given them over to a debased mind.

Survey Reveals Many Christians Deeply Confused About Biblical Theology

By PNW Staff December 05, 2018

Ligonier Ministries and LifeWay Research has published their most recent State of Theology study, and the results show a confused collection of beliefs held by American Christians and especially evangelicals.

The study consisted of interviews with 3,000 adult Christians and follows similar surveys given in 2014 and 2016. Startlingly high percentages of respondents again revealed clearly heretical beliefs when they were asked about the nature of God and belief, their opinions on certain sins and the role of the Bible.

How much of this heretical belief is the result of poor education in Christian theology and how much indicates the influence of external cultural factors that are slowly warping what millions of Christians across the country believe? That remains to be answered, but the results of these questions show several interesting trends in belief following the previous surveys as well as demographic trends among generations.

To give an example of how the survey exposed heretical beliefs held by the majority of the Christians interviewed, 52% responded that most people are basically good, 51% believe that God accepts the worship of all religions and 78% subscribe to the Arian Heresy, which teaches that Jesus was the first and great being created by God the Father. In fact, Jesus is not a created being; He is God the Son.

Ligonier concluded that “Overall, US adults appear to have a superficial attachment to well-known Christian beliefs. For example, a majority agreed that Jesus died on the cross for sin and that He rose from the dead.” When examining issues of theology that go deeper than these basic Christian beliefs or ask the interviewed Christians to wrestle with difficult ethical issues, their reliance on popular opinion and cultural relativism became clear.

A majority of 59% stated that the Holy Spirit is a force, not a personal being, and most shocking of all, the survey showed that 62% of American Christians surveyed believe that “religious belief is a matter of personal opinion and not of objective truth.”

A majority still believes that salvation comes through faith rather than good works and although they believe in the doctrine of the Trinity, they also hold contradictory beliefs that put Jesus outside of the Trinity. The belief that Jesus was a created being is a heresy refuted and condemned at the Council of Nicaea in 325 and also at the Council of Constantinople in 381. This belief was held by 71% of Christians in 2016 and rose to78% in 2018, even though it has not been taught in any American church.

Only 52% of Christians identified abortion as a sin and as many as 38% declared it not to be a sin (others were unsure). Likewise, 41% of Christians interviewed believe that the Bible’s condemnation of homosexuality does not apply today. The effects of cultural relativism are clearly visible here across the spectrum of beliefs.

Christians who classify themselves as evangelical claim they see the Bible as the highest authority, but on other survey questions clear contradictions emerge as 30% of Evangelicals admit that the Bible is open for each individual to interpret as he chooses and as society changes.

In the end, whereas some questions seem to indicate increasingly heretical beliefs and others reflect more orthodox Christian theology, the majority of the survey exposes a deep confusion about Biblical theology in general. As Christians interviewed were easily swayed by changes in question phrasing or the inclusion of certain popular “catchphrases” a general lack of theological knowledge was apparent.

Clearly, there is more work to be done not only to identify as Christian but truly to engage with what that means; to educate ourselves not just on a few theological touchstones or fixate on a few words, but to really understand the Bible as the Word of God.
