Pope Francis, the “Save the Earth” Prophet

Pope Francis, the “Save the Earth” Prophet – Pastor Mike Taylor – http://www.churchofgod-usa.org/1/post/2015/08/pope-francis-the-save-the-earth-prophet.html
 
Revelation 13:11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
 
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
 
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
 
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
 
As the hour of the end of days becomes more obvious to those of us who watch the events being played upon the political stages of a one world government and its religion, we must take notice of what is progressing right now to form that alliance of political and apostate religious institutions that will be a part of the coming beast power and the 2nd beast, the false prophet.
 
I watch and wonder, reading God’s Word in prayer and ask myself “just how will the satanic powers of the Anti-Christ and his ‘temporary’ false prophet reveal themselves?” I believe we are seeing the formation of that one world government even as I type this commentary.
 
CLIMATE CHANGE, THE NEW WORLD ORDER TO “SAVE THE PLANET”
 
The new politics for controlling all aspects of human activity is being formed. It used to be “global warming”, but the scandals surrounding the manufactured results by dubious scientist with a personal agenda ended using that term. Now the new call for “saving the planet” is climate change. Let’s face it folks, both ideas are a hoax designed to do one thing, and one thing only: control the populations of the world. The idea of “climate change” has been promoted by none other but by our “fearless leader” the POTUS. I’ll not use his name, as the name repulses me. For me, the man has proven that he is a traitor to the interest of the American people, and is a lawless dictator that doesn’t regard our Constitution or our laws that govern this land. The man has done everything in his power to divide this country along racial, economic, and gender lines. Along with the United Nations as a co-conspirator, this usurper in chief seeks to bring down the United States, as the most free and the most powerful nation ever to exist on earth. She must be eliminated, as it is the only thing that stands in the way of the elites vision of a “new world order”.
 
Agenda 21
 
According to the definition of this new initiative introduced by the United Nations are as follows:
 
“Agenda 21 is a non-binding, voluntarily implemented action plan of the with regard to sustainable development.[1] It is a product of the Earth Summit and the United Nations (UN Conference on Environment and Development) held in Rio de Janeiro,Brazil, in 1992. It is an action agenda for the UN, other multilateral organizations, and individual governments around the world that can be executed at local, national, and global levels. The “21” in Agenda 21 refers to the 21st Century. It has been affirmed and modified at subsequent UN conferences. ” (Wikipedia)
 
The phrase in the definition of Agenda 21 of “sustainable development” needs clarification. What does this mean? According to the World Commission on Environment and Development it is:
 
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It contains within it two key concepts:
 
· The concept of ‘needs’, in particular, the essential needs of the world’s poor, to which overriding priority should be given; and….
· The idea of limitations imposed by the state of technology and social organization on the environment’s ability to meet present and future needs. ”
 
Sounds good on the surface in theory, but what it means is giving up national sovereignty of this nation for the betterment of the world and redistributing the wealth of nations to poorer countries of the world.
 
The ultimate objective of the globalists is to use “sustainable development” as an excuse to micromanage the lives of every man, woman and child on the entire globe.
 
We are told that individual liberty and freedom are “dangerous” because when everyone just runs around doing whatever they want it is “bad for the planet”. It’s also bad for individual freedoms and initiatives found in capitalism. It’s better suited for socialism or communism, which both have been proven not to work, except to create masters and slave labor.
 
This plan has been around for over 20 years, but has failed to implement the goal of world domination to this point. That is before this present administration has thrown the full weight of his political “bully pulpit” behind the effort to “fundamentally transform” what has been the United States of America and what it stands for. That was his major proposal to the masses who elected this man who we knew absolutely nothing about and still don’t, except for what he has done in the last almost 7 years to bring about the near collapse of our way of life. He has attempted to “redistribute” the wealth and the freedom that we have enjoyed for 200 years and give it away to rest of the world. I ask you, “why?” I believe the answer lies in the man’s DNA, his upbringing, and the influences of a growing young man by men who were nothing more than what he is now….Marxist and traitors to the foundation laid by our founding fathers.
 
With each executive order, this POTUS has attempted to weaken our nation and it’s security. Do I really need to cover each and every lawless deed the man has done, from making laws around the legislative branch of the government, to championing abortion, destroying the family, promoting homosexuality and gay marriage, to making treaties with our sworn enemies such as Iran, and tearing down the institutions that were given by Almighty God to a nation born out of a desire for religious freedom? They are well documented and pervasive in their lawlessness.
 
AGENDA 2030
 
If you don’t like the sound or the implications of Agenda 21, you are going to hate what will be introduced this September by turning Agenda 21 into Agenda 2030. The United Nation will have a conference from September 25-27 to be in the implementation of this plan to control every aspect of human life on this planet. I went looking for an explanation of this UN plan and here is what I found:
 
“The United Nations is now in the process of defining Sustainable Development Goals as part a new sustainable development agenda that must finish the job and leave no one behind. This agenda, to be launched at the Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015, is currently being discussed at the UN General Assembly, where Member States and civil society are making contributions to the agenda. ”
 
What this plan will do, is micromanage every aspect of human endeavor. It will be the first step of forming a “one world government”.
 
Unlike Agenda 21, which primarily focused on the environment, the 2030 Agenda is truly a template for governing the entire planet. In addition to addressing climate change, it also sets ambitious goals for areas such as economics, health, energy, education, agriculture, gender equality and a whole host of other issues. As you will see , this global initiative is being billed as a “new universal Agenda” for humanity. If you are anything like me, alarm bells are going off in your head right about now.
 
 
The preamble to this document is summarized from their official document of the United Nations:
 
 
“This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.
 
All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.
 
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.”
 
As you can surely see, this is not about battling climate change, but to fundamentally change the concept of global society. This is what our POTUS along with the world body composed of those who hate America and what it stands for. The United Nations of those countries who are antagonistic to our way of life, and only wish to see our complete destruction, are mostly Muslim. But note that not even the POTUS along with his cronies in the UN and his administration can do this by themselves. No, they must have a voice that will sway the world’s opinion to allow this plan to be implemented. Now who is the man they will look to to convince the nations of the world to fall in line?
 
THE POPE OF ROME SPEAKS FOR AGENDA 2030
 
Our POTUS has joined forces with a political heavyweight that will be the beginning spokesman for the acceptance of such an agenda. No, it’s not Vladimir Putin, the prime minister of England, or any other head of state of any nation, but the head of a major religion found in Rome. Yes, the Pope of Rome will kick off the conference for Agenda 2030 and has gone on record in promoting “climate change” and saving the planet. The pope will become the religious spokesman for such a plan to control every aspect of human activity.
 
If you have followed any of my messages in the past, I have proposed that this man, this pope, the grand poohbah of the Catholic Church fits the details surrounding the rise of the false prophet. To review that study check out the link below:
 
 
In the message, I am amazed at the departure from scripture by a man who leads others to accept the teachings of any pope without question. Is not the leader of one of the major religions of the world to deal with spiritual conditions of the heart and lead men and women to Christ? Not this pope, or for that matter, any pope in recent history has been anything but a politician to form world opinion on political matters, not so much on Biblical truth….sorry if that offends those who are of this religious denomination, but it’s a verifiable fact.
 
I have proposed in this message that Pope Francis “could be” the coming False Prophet, because of the history of the Catholic Church that is filled with violence, murder, sexual sins, and political visions of world dominance. As I mentioned, the modus operandi (MO) of the Catholic Church has been such for 1400 years into our modern world. I make that assumption based on this Pope’s stance of salvation through other means but Jesus Christ alone, his position on the family, and homosexuality to name just a few. When he speaks, he speaks as a liberal politician, not a proponent of following the teachings of God’s Word. Is Pope Francis the false prophet?
 
Understand, I have been exploring possibilities in previous messages, based on scripture and recent news reports and events being unsure, but as time passes, and with each statement or action by the two major players that will promote “climate change” notably the POTUS and the current Roman Catholic pope, I’m becoming more convinced that the beginning players of the coming One World government and it’s alliance with a One World religion is right in front of us. Now the POTUS has been up front and promoting this global agenda of saving the planet through controlling carbon emissions for most his term as president. Many people have proposed and it has a wide acceptance that this POTUS is the coming Ant-Christ. I am not totally convinced, but if he is not the man, then he is definitely setting the stage for the REAL DEAL. What is being formed is worldwide chaos. It leads credence to their battle cry. “OUT OF CHAOS, COMES ORDER” Let us briefly look what will happen in the month of September of this year that leads to that chaos:
 
  1. The end of the Shemitah year and possible economic collapse that I explored in another message on my website.
 
2. The end of Jade Helm or rehearsing military takeover of American sovereignty.
 
3. The fourth Blood Moon of the tetrad that have been on Biblical Feast days.
 
4. Israel faced with a possible passage of the Iran nuclear deal.
 
5. The UN initiative for global government and world domination.
 
6. The coming Feast of Trumpets, or the sign of the coming King.
 
7. The pope being the spokesman for acceptance of this Agenda 2030
 
8. Possibly the new religion of worshiping the earth, as the religion of the new world order.
 
 Am I the only one who sees a convergence of events that spells a collision between Israel and the world, the rise of a global one world government, and promoting a one world religion found in the Catholic Church with “climate change” bringing them all together? They need a cause, a unifying message to bring all nations under one authority with the religion of “saving the planet”. The only way they can do any of this, is to destroy the United States of America and it’s capitalistic society to level the playing field, as America stands in their way.
 
Some call the pope, a prophet, as he has been drawing on a little know Catholic patriarch, known as the “green patriarch” Bartholomew I, who is a spiritual leader to millions of Catholics. His message is an ecological message, where worship of the earth and God’s creation flows from the writings of Saint Francis of Assisi, when he proclaimed “brother sun, sister water, brother wind, and sister mother earth”. The apostle Paul warned of those who worship the creation more than the creator: Romans 1,
 
21 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
 
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
 
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
 
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”
 
Is that not what is being done here? Is this not the MO of the Catholic Church to worship anything and everything, but the Creator who made them all? Oh, they mention dead Jesus on a cross, but in a crowd of everything else of their imaginations like dead saints, Mary, the earth, statues of Apostles, or past popes and in everything when they try and “Christianize” pagan beliefs. I’m sure God is not amused. They fail to realize the Jesus is alive and will not share His glory with man-made imaginations.
 
ECOLOGY, THE NEW RELIGION
 
In recent months, the pope has argued for a radical new financial and economic system to avoid human inequality and ecological devastation. In October he told a meeting of Latin American and Asian landless peasants and other social movements to end: “An economic system centered on the god of money needs to plunder nature to sustain the frenetic rhythm of consumption that is inherent to it.”
 
Oh, how I see this grand poobah of the Catholic Church that has left the foundation of our faith, Jesus Christ and preaches another gospel..whether it’s a social gospel, ecological gospel, or an aberrancy to salvation. Will Francis be the ecological prophet of the New World Order? His critics abound for his move to the “save the planet” liberal left. Pope Francis has been called a marxist, a danger to the world, and an eco-wolf in pope’s clothing. Those proclaim that he only wishes to make us all equal in our misery.
 
“Pope Francis’ encyclical on climate change reveals his belief that there is a moral obligation to act swiftly on climate change, which disproportionately harms the world’s poor. But conservative media are relentlessly attacking the pope over the encyclical, calling it “insipid” and “blasphemous,” and fearmongering that the Catholic leader is a “Marxist” pushing for “a new world order,” among other things.” (Mediamatters for America)
 
 AGAIN, WHAT TIME IS IT?
 
 My dear friend, those of you who reading this post, the time of the end of this age is drawing very close. This year and next year could be filled with prophetic signs and wonders. Is Pope Francis the false prophet? Is the POTUS the Anti-Christ? I believe we will see the signs that give us pause to wonder if they are, or are not, but this side of the coming of Jesus for His church, we will not know, but wonder. Why? Paul told us why in 2nd Thessalonians 2:
 
“7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
 
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
 
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
 
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
 
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
 
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
 
Both beasts of Revelation will not reveal themselves fully until the Holy Spirit is removed quoted in verse 7. We may wonder, we may think we know, but if they are this close to a one world government and a proposal for one world religion that is congealing by the day into existence, how close are we to hearing a trumpet blast and the Lord Jesus coming with a shout, saying “Come up hither”? 1 Thessalonians 4:
 
“16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
 
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”
 
How close? I believe very close, right at the door….so come Lord Jesus.
 
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life”. John 3:16

Home Time

Home Time – By Daymond Duck –
http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd181.html

In 1139 A.D. (about 876 years ago), a Roman Catholic priest named St. Malachy said he had a vision from God (St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes; Google it). According to him, in his vision, God revealed that the Pope at that time (Innocent II) would be followed by 112 more Popes and the 112th Pope would be the False Prophet.

St. Malachy also said the 112th Pope would pave the way for the Antichrist; he would rule during the Tribulation period; rule during the destruction of the Roman Catholic Church, and be in office when the battle of Armageddon takes place.

Most Christians have never heard of St. Malachy’s prophecy, but many who have give no credence to it because it is not Scripture. It does not have the authority of Scripture and it should not be treated as such. But a few who have heard about it believe it is true because St. Malachy prophesied (some vague and other not so vague) characteristics about each Pope that they think have come true.

It makes for interesting speculation. For instance, if the False Prophet is alive, the Antichrist is alive. If the 78 year old Pope is the False Prophet, the Rapture, world government, world religion, wars and rumors of wars, division of Israel, mark of the beast, etc. are near.

Anyway, one of the interesting things about St. Malachy’s prophecy is that Pope Francis (the current Pope) is the 112th Pope since Innocent II and his theology seems to lack a lot. Dr. David R. Reagan (the Founder and Director of Lamb & Lion Ministries) recently did a great job of pointing out some of the Pope’s theological errors.

For example, Pope Francis said, “If Martians were to land on earth tomorrow, I would be happy to baptize them.” Martians should not be baptized unless they accept Jesus.

Pope Francis said, “Atheists who do good are redeemed, not just Catholics.” No one can be saved by doing good, not atheists, not Catholics, not Martians or anyone else.

Pope Francis said, “The Big Bang Theory does not contradict the role of God as divine Creator.” The Bible says God spoke this world into existence in six days. That contradicts a massive explosion in one day.

Pope Francis said, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?” God said the gay lifestyle is an abomination and the Pope has the responsibility to know it and tell it like it is.

Pope Francis said, “God is not a divine being or a magician.” God is a divine being who works miracles.

Since Dr. Reagan’s great article, Pope Francis has recognized the State of Palestine. This is a major theological error. Pope Francis can recognize the division of Israel, but according to the Bible God won’t recognize it.

Having said this, Revelation chapter 13 teaches that two beasts (the Antichrist and the False Prophet) will rise to power during the Tribulation period. The Antichrist (a global political leader) will receive his power from Satan (Rev. 13:2, 4). The False Prophet (a global religious leader) will speak like Satan (Rev. 13:11).

These two beasts (world leaders) will have a common goal that will come from Satan (Rev.17:7). They will work together to establish a world government and a false religion (Rev.13:7-8).

Some believe the false religion will be located in the city of Rome (where the Roman Catholic Church is) and others believe it will be located in the rebuilt city of Babylon (Rev. 17:5, 9). For awhile, the Antichrist and False Prophet will share a political alliance with global leaders (Ten Kings), but that won’t last (Rev. 17:12-13; 16). Put another way, the False Prophet will abandon true worship and establish a political alliance with world leaders.

This brings us to the Papal Encyclical that Pope Francis released on June 18, 2015. Some call it a political document because Pope Francis wants political leaders to reduce the world’s population, regulate global climate change, establish a global constitution, establish a global court, establish a global council (could this be 10 kings) and establish a one-world government.

Pope Francis condemned global greenhouse gas emissions, but some hoped he would condemn Islamic terrorism and the persecution of Christians. He wrote about our “sister” Mother Earth, but some hoped he would write about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

He wrote about stamping out the coal industry, but some hoped he would write about stamping out abortion and gay marriage. He wrote about the rise of sea levels, but some hoped he would write about the rise of lawlessness in the world and in the White House. It was said that Pope Francis was speaking to the world, but his encyclical sounded more like he was speaking for the world instead of for God.

Understand that this writer is not saying that Pope Francis is the False Prophet because that cannot be known by mortals at this time. But this writer is saying that Pope Francis is the 112th Pope since Innocent II, he is demonstrating theological error, he is aligning himself with political leaders and he is taking positions that the Antichrist and False Prophet will take.

It is either coincidence or another sign that signifies the nearness of home time (the Rapture).

Nearing Midnight: A Good Man for All Religions

Nearing Midnight: A Good Man for All Religions – Todd Strandberg http://www.raptureready.com/rap16.html

One of the greatest misconceptions in Bible prophecy is the belief that the Antichrist and his sidekick, the False Prophet, will be people of an unmistakable evil nature. This view is so strong that some of history’s greatest mass murders have been labeled as Antichrist contenders.

The Bible actually paints a picture of men who are initially, extremely well-liked. The Antichrist will come and magically solve most of the world’s economic and political problems. Revelation 13:4 says that the people’s approval of him will so great, they openly, “Worshipped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?'”

The False Prophet also will be a very likeable individual. He is described as a lamb that speaks like a dragon, which means he will be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. His primary end-time roll is to act as the Antichrist’s main cheerleader, but will also have special powers that allow him to perform miracles deceiving vast numbers of people:

“And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast” (Revelation 13:12-14).

I’ve always found it unproductive to speculate about the identity of the Antichrist. The Bible says he will not be clearly known until the second half of the Tribulation. Since he is a political figure, he could appear out of nowhere.

I think the False Prophet is more likely to be spotted-ahead of the Tribulation hour. Because religious organizations are generally static keeping their leadership in office for several years, there is great chance of a current religious leader fulfilling this role.

I have been truly amazed at how strongly Pope Francis comes on as a possible candidate for the role of the False Prophet. He hasn’t even been in office for one year and he has achieved a rock star following. In fact, he was just on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. On a wall near the Vatican is a graffiti image of the pope as superman, flying through the air with his white cape billowing out behind him.

Actor, Kirk Douglas, regularly writes editorials for newspapers and in one of his articles he called Pope Francis, “A good man for all religions.” When considering that the False Prophet will head a harlot church-an amalgamation of all world religions-the Douglas title takes on an ominous nature.

My problem with Pope Francis is not just with how he may fit into Bible prophecy. His doctrinal beliefs are what have me most concerned. When asked about his views on same-sex marriage he responded, “Who am I to judge?” He has openly asked atheists to join the prayerful in promoting peace. He has also been one the ecumenical popes holding ceremonies with leaders of other religions.

The most troubling sign is the warm relationship he has developed with the liberal media. The Bible warns that the true gospel message will normally cause people to be offended. The “love” gospel message that Pope Francis promotes is music to the ears of a press that hate any moral guidelines. The Pope has become the king of religious fluff with headlines like: “Pope Francis Warns Unemployment Can Lead to Suicide” and “Pope Francis Gladly Blesses Parrot Belonging to Male Stripper.”

A few days ago, an interesting thing happened while Pope Francis was addressing tens of thousands of people in St. Peter’s Square. He had two white doves released by children standing next to him-while he prayed for a peaceful resolution to the crisis in the Ukraine. Once the doves where let go, both were immediately attacked by a crow and seagull; I can only wonder if God was trying to show that empty symbolism is no match for evil forces that wish to devour us.

We must be close to the Tribulation hour because there are several people that have me wondering if they have some end-time role. Putin has the perfect characteristics of the Gog leader. Last week, the anti-Israeli President Obama said, lasting peace requires, “Access to holy sites [Temple Mount] for all faiths.”

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28).

Dragon Talk

Dragon Talk

By Daymond Duck

Revelation chapter 13 introduces us to two beasts. The first beast is the Antichrist and he will rise up out of the sea (Revelation 13:1); a symbol in the book of Revelation for peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues (Revelation 17:15). The Bible calls him “a king of fierce countenance,” “the man of sin,” “the son of perdition,” “that Wicked” and more (Daniel 8:23; I2 Thessalonians 2:3, 8). He will be evil incarnate in the flesh.

The second beast is the False Prophet (Revelation 16:13; 19:20; 20:10) and he will rise up out of the earth (Revelation 13:11); a vague and uncertain word that a few believe refers to the land of Israel. He will have two horns like a lamb (suggesting he will be like a wolf in sheep’s clothing trying to imitate the Lamb of God; Matthew 7:15), but his words will betray him because he will speak like a dragon (dragon-talk), a symbol in the book of Revelation for Satan (Revelation 12:9). This False Prophet will try to make people believe he is a kind, loving, religious, moral man, but his words will be the words of a slithering monster from the pits of hell.

He will exercise all the power of the first beast (“man of sin,” “son of perdition,” etc.) and demand that everyone on earth worship him (Revelation 13:12). He will have great power and work to advance the agenda of the “man of sin” (world government and world religion).

One thing the False Prophet will do to promote the agenda of the Antichrist is to build an image of the Antichrist and demand that everyone worship it or be killed (Revelation 13:14-15). To use kinder, gentler and more deceptive dragon-talk: His support for the Antichrist will rise to an unprecedented level and, for the good of all humankind; he will require everyone to support the globalist agenda or be eliminated.

This brings me to a stunning article by Paul Joseph Watson that was posted on infowars.com on January 17, 2014. Mr. Watson disclosed that a man named Harlan K. Ullman has written an article for the Atlantic Council titled, “War on Terror Is Not the Only Threat.” It is important to know that Mr. Ullman is the founder and chairman of the Killowen Group, a very influential organization that advises world leaders. Also, that one of the members of the Atlantic Council is Mr. Brent Scowcroft an advisor to Presidents Gerald Ford, George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama. Mr. Ullman is also a former professor at the National War College and an advisor to the U.S. Dept. of Defense.

There are two points in Mr. Ullman’s article that I find particularly disturbing. First, Mr. Watson said he (Ullman) warns that an “extraordinary crisis” is needed to preserve the New World Order. David Rockefeller said something similar to that in 1994 and former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown talked about it in 2008. Why does the world need an extremely bad thing to ramp up support for something worse (world government)? The answer is because in a time of crisis people will accept fundamental change that they wouldn’t accept under other circumstances. If they can be convinced that they have no other choice, they will accept world government.

Second, Mr. Watson said he (Ullman) “concludes that the elimination of non-state actors and empowered individuals “must be done” in order to preserve the new world order.” How are these individuals a threat and who are the ones that “must be” eliminated? The article says it is primarily people who use the Internet; and it adds: “people like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and their growing legion of supporters.”

Let me see if I understand this. One purpose of the mark of the beast is to track and eliminate those who oppose world government. American citizens who use the Internet and who are opposed to world government are seen as a great threat and they need to be spied on and identified so they can be eliminated. Some even consider them to be a greater threat than radicalized Muslims. Who knows? An “extraordinary crisis” may be closer than any of us realize.

I’m thankful the Rapture will take place before the mark of the beast comes on the scene. But when the Antichrist appears there won’t be many places for those who oppose world government to hide. Right now, it’s almost enough to make a person flee to Russia, but in the future that won’t even do any good.

War of the Worlds?

War of the Worlds?

By Pastor Mike Taylor

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:9-12

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. . . .  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. (Ephesians 5:6-11, 15-17)

In times past, I wrote of the coming of a One World Religion that may be headed up by none other than the Roman Catholic Church and it’s pope. Based on their history and their continued efforts through organization such as the Jesuits (Society of Jesus), and co-conspirators such as Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and the emerging church, they are introducing mysticism into church practices and official doctrine. I want you to read an article entitled “The Jesuit Agenda and the Evangelical/Protestant Church” (copy and paste in Google). In the article it mentions about the goal of the Emerging Church with the likes of Rick Warren and his cohorts promoting a returning of the brethren to the “mother church”. Quote:

“Rick Warren has been one of the many pied pipers of this move to unite through “good works.” Called “America’s pastor,” Warren has become the evangelical/Protestant spokesperson for a one-world religion. His Purpose Driven model has become the battle cry for let just all get along and do good. We can work together as one for one common purpose – peace in the world.” From the article above. It all is designed to set up what I wish to talk about in this sermon.

But moving on to the focus of this message, what is the one ingredient that would immediately unite the world into the goal of a One World Government and a One World Religion? It’s a possible scenario even beyond our economic woes and the devaluation of the dollar, or calls for unity of all nations, as there are so many differences in each sovereign nation. What if a world population believed that their very survival was at stake, or that the world, as we know it, was about to abruptly end with violence and untold suffering? What would convince a undiscerning population to follow one man, one government, one religion to give them a sense of calm and reinforce their continued sinful lifestyle?

As far back as 1987, after a meeting with Russian president Gorbachev, President Ronald Reagan spoke of the one thing that would unite the world as one and put all our petty differences aside. President Reagan said, speaking of himself and Gorbachev::

“how easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We’d forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries …

”And later in another speech, Reagan remarks were along the same line:

“in our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond.

I believe he spoke in ignorance of that simple truth, for it he had known, then that would make him a prophet, if the following scenario became fact.

Suppose that the population of the world truly believed and were falsely led to believe that an “invasion from another world” had taken place and that this world, this planet was in danger of annihilation?  I believe that is the one thing that would instantly unite this world of sinful men to stand against outside forces from invading our world. With the coming environmental attacks against this planet that have already started picks up speed, many will believe anything.

If you are middle aged, you can recall back in the 70s, a little movie called “E.T.”. Cute little movie with a cute little being from outer space that only wanted to “phone home.” Since that movie the interest in things beyond our world has escalated into greater and greater interest in all things extraterrestrial. The movie industry has exploded with plots that speak of either friendly, or not so friendly visitors from another planet. Movies such as “Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1976), Critters,(1986),  Signs (2002), Predator series, (starting in 1987), War of the Worlds, (2005), Independence Day, (1996), and Fallen Angels (2007) but to name just a few that Hollywood has made to cash in on the tremendous preoccupation with all things “outer space.” I believe the world has been following the lead of the prince of lies to set up just such a scenario that may be coming in the near future as a lie to the people of earth.

Let’s face it – extra terrestrials scare the pants off most of us. These films don’t typically portray our little outer space invaders as cute E.T. like creatures. In fact, most films portray them as how they are truly are thought of – evil, murdering, blood-sucking, and anxious to steal and destroy our beautiful earth and it’s environment.

I propose a question, what would happen if the world suddenly realized “in the twinkling of an eye” that billions of people suddenly vanished from off the face of the earth? What would the immediate result be with such a scenario? Would there be utter chaos? Most assuredly people would be confused and scared to death. People have hypothesized the calamity that would befall this world in untold carnage. I write this as you might be reading this on a Christian web-site, as this coming scenario actually happened, and you are looking for answers. It is to you, that I write this. In all your wide eyed astonishment of something totally unexplainable in any logical sense, you have been shaken to very core of your being.

Given the modern age of machines that we live in, and operators of these machines were suddenly gone, the untold accidents around the world would cram the TV sets, the internet, and radio for months and months. People would try and make sense of what had just happened. What would be the accepted explanation? Shall I propose something so outlandish, that if it happened, a light bulb would go off in your head?

AGE OF AQUARIUS?

Remember the song by the “Fifth Dimensions” called the “Age of Aquarius”? Was a catchy little tune, but was at the beginning of the New Age idea of a new world coming. Many of these New Agers believe that man must evolve into a higher consciousness, or be transformed into a new creature to live for eternity, by methods such as tran-humanism, or being downloaded into a master super computer. (Weird!) Man searches for the “fountain of youth” and to live forever. They forget God and reject the Creator, and instead make themselves a god unto their own likeness. They have no need for a god, or think they do not, but rely only on themselves, calling themselves “humanist” or the worshiping of mankind.

Man has been trying to deny the need for God Almighty, through the deceit and lies of the “prince of all lies” Satan the devil for thousands of years. In modern times with all our technology, with all our modern conveniences, and with science and discovery expanded at a breathtaking pace of doubling of knowledge every couple of years, the modern world has grown more and more wicked and further and further from God. Celebrity entertainers (for lack of a better description) such as Lady GaGa promote a hedonistic lifestyle where anything goes. The old saying, “if it feels good, do it” could not be any truer that it is today.

Singers like this Lady GaGa revel in their sins. I saw where she came in to a concert encased in a large egg, that led some people to postulate that she was promoting a new beginning for all of the world’s people to revel in their lust and sexual desires. And she never fails to amaze me to the level of her depravity and now we have “Hannah Montana” wanting to share the passing torch of this woman’s abomination of indecency. Her dad must be proud. These celebrities live for the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. Some people love the world and could care less about what it is will happen to them for all eternity. They lust for the here and now.   The apostle John warned us through the leading of God when he penned:

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (I John 2:15-17)

Those who perish do so because they do not receive or welcome—the love of the truth. Because they do not, God will send them a strong delusion, so that they will believe the lie and be condemned. In reality, God is just giving them what they desire anyway. They prefer carnal delusion to spiritual reality, so God obliges them. The unrighteous in Romans  chapter 1 desire a world view without a Creator so they can be sexually liberated and do abomination in His sight. God gives them over to it and lets them reap the awful consequences.

IN THE  POSSIBLE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE, (Hypothetical) What if?

Suddenly, a News-flash comes over the Internet. Your radio is blaring out as emergency sirens go off all over your neighborhood. Emergency vehicles are rushing to accidents right in your area. You might wonder “What has happened?”. You turn on the TV and the horror of mass confusion fills the screen. Still another is sitting, uninterested listening to a preacher in church tell the same old story that they have heard many, many times, but “hey, it’s not for me.”. Suddenly, they hear something. Maybe it’s a loud clap of thunder, or was it a trumpet blast? They are not sure. It brings them back to reality, as they look around the seats of all the people that were in the pews are basically empty, except them, and a few others who look at them with sheer terror in their eyes. Suddenly, it dawns on them as they had heard it time and time again and never took it seriously. Their mother, or their father, maybe their son, daughter, or any friend that they knew is suddenly. ………GONE!! Vanished!! They were given no warning and they are left in utter terror. They MAY or may not realize with tears and sobs that they just missed the most important event in all of mankind, the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to carry His chosen ones, His Father’s children to be with Him, forever and ever.  I Corinthians chapter 15:

15:51  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

15:52  In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

Wait a minute, you don’t believe that stuff or let’s say, did not, so there has to be a scientific explanation for this, right?  You rush home the best way you can and turn on  your TV for news of what has happened. A leader of the “free world” has come on to calm the nation. This future person takes a deep breath, as they realize, that at least the president is still here. (oh, that’s comforting). She speaks of reports of many missing people and that Homeland Security is on the scene of many areas of missing people. She calls for calm and calls in the National Guard, or what’s left of it, to put down looting and other criminal activity. She says stay tuned for further developments.

You switch channels and the report is interviewing a “Emergent Church” pastor that makes the statement that these people were removed from earth, as they stood in the way of man’s quest for a peaceful world and ushering in a New World order and unity of the faith. Without these “rabble rousers” maybe we can live in peace and security and focus on making this world the paradise we had envisioned and have “heaven on earth”. Other than that, he has no real explanation.

Switching channels, they find a serious looking gentleman that has just been elected to a New World body and is quite familiar to them. Seems he came out of nowhere. He might have been a unknown senator from Illinois, or may have been president for a while, but now he heads a World “Council on Human Development” headed by the United Nations. He hypothesizes and backs it up with so-called scientific information of monitoring sightings of unusual signs in the skies that have been being tracked for some years now.  He may speak of this “it is the opinion of this world body, that these missing people were the victims of an alien abduction. We have reports of saucer type spacecraft flying in various places. Please stay in your homes and do not answer to anyone without official documentation that they are from your local authorities.”

Obviously, this is conjecture, but I believe it is possible, in this scenario, that the event will be somehow explained away. Many people will grasp onto any explanation of what has just happened. How it  will be explained away, is for you that read this in your wide-eyed, sheer terror of the events that just went down all around you.

Know one thing, reader of these words, before the man of sin appears, Satan must lay some groundwork to prepare for his acceptance. What better way than to throw the world into quarreling and divisive and wearying confusion? Could the lie to calm the people be attributed to a “war from an invading race ” that is imminent.”? People then yearn for some strong and seemingly wise hands to set things straight, so the nations can “catch their breath” and have a span of peaceful calm. In its wake, confusion creates directionless people, with little desire to change the status quo, whose minds are turned in upon themselves in an attempt to keep what they have. They want to continue in their sinful lives and find answers to this event that has turned their world upside down.

Remember this verse:
And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. II Thessalonians 2:11-12.

Get ready for what the Bible calls, the man of sin, the son of perdition, called the Anti-Christ who will eventually lead the world to worship him, as a god, and take the mark of his word in the forehead or their right hand.  I propose that the Anti-Christ could possibly come from an Islamic country, as the people left will be ripe for falling in line with a major religion that is left on earth. All other rest of the sheeples will be convinced by a man who supports this new leader by claiming him to be what this world needs “a savior”. This man will be the false prophet. What better way to conquer the world, than two competing forces join together to bring all men into a One World Government and a One World Religion than the Anti-Christ being Islamic, and the false prophet being from an apostate “Christian” religion known as the Roman Catholic Church and headed by the false prophet, the Pope in Rome? They will join forces, although for a short while. The harlot church will lead the beast power to take over the remaining population, as both will compete against each other for political position, until one is destroyed according to the Word of God. That harlot church will be burned with fire.

Revelation 17:16  And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

 Revelation 13:16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

13:17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

This false Christ, this man of sin, will do amazing things in the sight of men, along with his false prophet, possibly “the pope in Rome.” Both will convince people of what their explanation of these missing people, as truth. They will convince sinful men that they have been invaded by another race of aliens that this earth must unite to do battle with and prevent the destruction of the human race. (Never let a crisis go to waste. Isn’t that what they said?) As this time in history grows darker and darker, and the blood of many souls are spilled for their profession of faith in the Lord of the universe and will not submit to a false “god” It will be their aim to stamp all rebellion to their authority “for the good of the planet.” I believe at the very end, this man of sin will convince a major army to come together to do battle with what many people will believe falsely through his deceit and lying wonders, a “war from another world” has taken place. He will bring them all into a valley of strategic military positions to fight against this alien species and while they are at it, rid themselves of the cancer on mankind, the nation of Israel. Why Israel? Because Satan has hated her from the very beginning, when he saw that the Messiah would come through her.

Maybe it will eventually dawn on some of them that this is not some alien attack, and some may realize that they are gathered to fight against God Himself, but too late to do anything about it, as it will be over in a flash.

Revelation 16:16  And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Here our God and Savior, will make short work of this vast army who has come to fight. Will each and every person there believe that he is fighting an invading world for the good of this planet and the survival of the human species? Makes for interesting discussions and it very well could be so, as the lie that has been broadcasted for the last 7 years has penetrated sinful men’s minds to believe and give allegiance to one man who they look to as their “god”. But Jesus will deliver the final blow to this rebellion against God Almighty.

You remember the statement when America invaded Iraq with “shock and awe”?  Jesus coming back to set up his kingdom and destroy all rebellion is the real SHOCK AND AWE. Not only is our Savior coming to reign and rule with “shock and awe”, it will be the greatest destruction as you can ever have imagined it. The angel calls the birds to devour the flesh of all people, small and great. Our Creator comes back to wage a righteous war, one that has been brewing for 6,000 years due to man’s hostility and rebellion to God and the lies of the “god of this world” Satan, the devil. By the time this prophecy is fulfilled, God has had enough of sin.  Jesus Christ comes back and treads the winepress of His wrath, where the blood spilled comes up to the horse’s bridles. It is hard to imagine blood three or four feet deep and flowing like a river in a 20 mile long valley. Revelation chapter 14, speaks of this valley outside Jerusalem,

14:20  And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Where will you be in this terrible hour?

I write this to all who may be reading this commentary after the event of billions of people disappearing from this planet. We, who are prepared, need not fear, but be lifting up our heads, “because our redemption draweth night”. Luke 21:28.  But to you who are frightened, confused, and searching for an explanation, you have read the possible reason, and you have read the possible lies that will be forthcoming after this event caught you off-guard. It doesn’t matter what the lie is being proposed, you have just been duped to believing in yourself and no need for God, by Lucifer, the prince of darkness, to  you own destruction. The next 7 years will be the most gruesome time in all of mankind’s history. Jesus said in

Matthew chapter 24:,

24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

24:22  And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

If you are reading this, and this disappearance of a billion + people has not yet happened, rest assured, God will do what He said He will do. All that I have tried to do is make as an imagery in your minds of the horror that is coming, the lies that will be spoken, the lying wonders designed to deceive you will be done according to what the Word of God says. If you are this side of the lies and this reported possible “war of the worlds” then there is still time to make Jesus the Lord of your life. If you wish to find out the true path to everlasting life, then I invite you to send me an email inquiring the path to take and instruction in true biblical faith in the only Savior of mankind. Remember one thing from here to the events I attempt to jypothesize…when this happens, a lie WILL be put out in the media to confuse you, to calm you, and yes, to lie to you.

Matthew 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

I beseech you, do not be the one who follows the broad way, as that is the way of the Anti-Christ and the coming tribulation, but enter by the way of the narrow path and the narrow gate to everlasting life. Do not believe whatever lie is thrown out for an explanation of a billion + people gone missing.  Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ while the time is still available before the Tribulation begins all its unspeakable horrors. That gate is Jesus Christ and His resurrection. Wish to find out more? Email me! Because if you are reading this and any scenario explaining the disappearance of so many people instantly, then my friend “Woe unto you.” The prophecies outlined in Revelation chapter 6-19 are at your very doorstep.

This is Pastor Mike Taylor, wishing you God’s love in your life. If you wish to email me for biblical instruction, a need for prayer, or just to listen, send me an email request to realteam1999@sbcglobal.net,
