END TIMES ANTICHRIST,
There is a lot of confusion about how the Antichrist will dominate the world. The Mark of the Beast is taught about, but even in the Mark, most prophecy teachers fail to see how it self-drives itself and is enforced.
Also, most prophecy teachers fail to tell that life will be very good for the world during the first half of the Great Trib-ulation. The gentle deception of the Beast system will be very seductive, and many will be deceived into submission to the Antichrist while they are vigilantly watching for the Antichrist.
24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe
At Blessed Quietness Journal we believe that the Bible makes it very clear that born again Christians are removed from the earth before the wrath of Satan, and later, the wrath of God is poured out upon the earth. This means that for the whole seven years of Great Tribulation the Church has been gone already.
The issue for Bible believers is that we may be deceived by the run up to the Great Tribulation and participate.
Let us review the Laodicean text in Revelation 3, as well as Nicolaitan tyranny in chapter 2.
Laodicea-- Rule of the People
Laodíkeia, lah-od-ik'-i-ah-- Judgment by the people, or rule by the people.
Revelation 3:14 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;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 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.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Laodicea was a free Roman city in Asia Minor (Turkey today), and they were noted for the power of their democracy which Caesar in Rome had ceded to them. They were the capital of twenty four cities. Laodicea was at the crossroads of commerce and the caravan routes. They were exceedingly rich, and the citizens and merchants had great influence over the rulers.
While the churches Christ addressed in The Revelation were real local churches long ago, with real problems and strengths, they are also very obviously representatives for the various ages of the Christian Church's history over the last 2000 years.
Since the Laodicean church was the last of seven churches addressed in Revelation chapters 1 through 3, we can see that this is also the spirit of the last age before Christ removes his Church in what is called by some the Rapture. This also tells us that the world's social order will be driven by the masses who will successfully challenge the top, the Nicolaitans discussed below.
But, spiritually, the members of the original Laodicean local church in Asia Minor were poor and blind and naked spiritually, while their name makes it clear that they were defenders of freedom of the masses of prideful and ungodly pagans. They were very patriotic to Rome, and you need to take note of that as you wave the American flag in your church services. But, in their patriotism, the Laodiceans were rebels against God.
The Laodiceans lived a very good life, and their rulers had to be cautious how far they pushed the citizens in any issue. It sounds a lot like the Tea Party people today in the USA. If you think the Libertarian aggression against the government today is noble, you are a Laodicean, and I suspect Jesus is outside your door knocking to be let back in. Oh, you will deny this of course. You are very religious I suspect, at least in your own eyes. But, you are poor and blind and naked. No one who is a committed Bible believer is fooled by your sloppy piety. Your obsessions are on your lust for wealth and power, not for Jesus Christ.
But, you Laodiceans are having your day. You will soon force the power elite to bow to your power. This is already happening in some nations, as in Greece. The EU is being forced to try to restructure their economic and banking apparatuses to accommodate the Greek rebellion. This process is accomplished by smoldering rebellion that never quite breaks out into physical violence. The market place is where the rebels bring force against the Nicolaitans.
While we are all familiar with Laodicean entities like Wikileaks, and Edward Snowden, the real power of the Laodiceans is their economic power in the world. They are online by the hundreds of millions buying and selling, and, as much as Obama and the other Nicolaitans would love to bury the Internet forever, those powers on high are forced to keep their hands off of the Internet if they want to see the economy survive. That is power.
Bitcoin is also a classic example of "rule of the people" in a monetary form, and we discuss that in detail below.
Conquer the People
Nikolates, nik-ol-ah-ee'-tace-- Destruction or rule of the people.
Revelation 2:1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
Nicholas was a church leader in the early Apostolic Church. He took power over local church people, ruled them, and convinced them to commit fornication, as Balaam did in the Old Testament. Balaam also taught the Hebrew people to worship Baal. So, the Nicolaitans today are those who take over the Lord's Church from a ruling position on high. They may either be inside the church, or they may be Christ haters from outside the church which turn church members against Bible based Christianity. This is best example today by Pope "Rancid" Francis who is trying to convince true Bible believers to join with other pagan religions like Islam and Buddhism and affirm that the God of the Bible is Allah.
But, be not deceived, ANY Baptist pastor, or any other denominational leader, who heists himself into the seat of authority, and demands submission to his authority, is a Nicolaitan. There were only pastors, deacons, elders, and evangelists in the Apostolic Church. So, all of the denominational or Fundamental Baptist titles, councils, and venues above the New Testament leadership ARE NICOLAITANS. They define themselves as essential to keep order, but what they really do is CONTROL THE PEOPLE. The Southern Baptist Convention is a classic example of this. They claim the local churches are autonomous, but it is a lie. Powerful men in high places exercise great power and influence over the members.
Christ says, in Revelation 2:6 that he hates the deeds of the Nicolaitans. Thus, Christ hates the present attempts of the world elite to take total rule over the people of the world and make slaves of them. Christ hates imperial hegemony both in the world and in his Church, and this includes even small Fundamental Baptist churches where a snot nosed popelet of a pastor rules with an iron fist.
There was a very powerful oligarchy in the Ephesian city government which ruled all trade and commerce and forced filthy sexual perversion on the Ephesian citizens. Many citizens hated it. It was this hate for uncivilized manners which drove unconverted Ephesians to attend the local church in Ephesus about forty years after the above Revelation message to the Laodician church. They never confessed faith in Christ, but they felt less vulgar, and eventually, these unconverted church members destroyed the Ephesian church with compromise. Indeed, they left their first love, and it must be assumed that their hate for Nicolaitanism mentioned by Christ in Revelation 2:6 above was replaced by an elite church oligarchy.
As we noted above, the cult of Nicolaitanism was started by a bishop named Nicholas. He set about to rule the whole existing church in the early years after the New Testament era. The hierarchy he set in place transitioned into what we now know as the Roman Catholic Church. As a side note, the ecclesiastical manifestation of Nicolaitanism is personified in Pope Francis and his bishops. Christ thus hates their system, and we need to understand that he is going to destroy the whole structure of the Roman Whore Church soon. Any of you who are charmed by Pope Francis are stupid fools. You are exalting this pimp of Satan who is presently courting all of Christendom with his sweet talk and his tolerance of sodomy.
HERE IS A VIDEO SHOWING THE VATICAN NICOLAITAN TREACHERY
IS THE VATICAN BEHIND ALMOST ALL "MUSLIM TERRORISM"?
THOUGHT PROVOKING VIDEOS ON ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AND WORLD TERRORISM
We may see, or soon find out on alternative media, that both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton will be black listed by the Vatican.
Hillary for THIS INSULT.
Jeb Bush because HE was the one insulted by Pope Francis.
I believe that in the 2016 elections in the USA the Vatican will play a deeper role than at any time in American history. Pope Francis is pushing fiercely to advance the power of the Vatican over the USA.
Finally, any Fundamental alleged Bible believing church which is ruled over by "pastoral rule" is Nicolaitan. It is a warped caricature of the Body of Christ as established by the Apostle Paul. These little cheesy popelets of the Fundamental Baptist movement are bastard sons doomed to burn in hell forever because they made themselves the ruler of Christ's Church, thus sending him out the door to stand on the outside. If you are in a church dominated by "pastoral rule," get out.
So, the contest between the Nicolaitans and the Laodiceans is NOT a battle any Bible believer has any business joining or helping. It is profane and merely a war driven by greed on both the top and the bottom of society. Furthermore, the Laodiceans, as soon as they raise one of their own to the heights, promptly turn on him because he becomes a Nicolaitan. For this reason the Laodiceans never win. Witness Occupy-- what losers, but they got the attention of the Nicolaitans. Indeed, you older readers, recall the 1960s and the hippies. Did they ever elect one of their own to any office? I recall none. They rock the boat, they get huge media attention, the Nicolaitans tremble and infiltrate them, and the Laodiceans drift back and forth from bass to treble, but they never make a song that lasts.
Thus, the Nicolaitans remain in control, but they too never get total control. With the ever snooping Internet and Laodicean Edward Snowden and the rest of the whistle blowers, the Nicolaitans never quite gain total control.
You do not belong with either of these powers if you are a true Bible believer.
It is a war for monetary freedom, and ordinarily the masses would lose. History tells us that the elite and the royalty of the ages have prevailed over the people 90% of the time, especially in the area of monetary and banking endeavors. But, prophetically, the masses will win this time, indeed, ARE winning. We are in the Laodicean age, according to the Bible above, and we need to anticipate at least a sharing of economic and monetary power by the Laodiceans and the Nicolaitans.
Democratic processes still allow the Nicolaitans of today to rule in the seats of government in a charade of doing what is good for the masses. But, there will be revolution, and not with guns. The Laodiceans will take much commerce and trade and run away with the Nicolaitans. Hackers will be the only soldiers. There will eventually be no guns or street demonstrations. One by one, large corporations and banks will be hacked, and the Nicolaitans will be forced to bring the best of the hackers and Laodicean financial mavericks on board. What is happening right now in Greece and elsewhere is only the beginning.
Whenever the Nicolaitans get a leg up on the Laodiceans, the Laodiceans will dive into Bitcoin and other refuges we have not yet seen. Watch for large financial barter clubs to soon appear. The Nicolaitans will be forced to totally revamp their empires. Tax revenues worldwide will dry up slowly as the Laodiceans hide more and more of their wealth. Antichrist will step in, and he will convince the Laodiceans he is their savior. In this move, Antichrist will make himself the ruler of the Nicolaitans AND the Laodiceans, and all men will suffer terribly.
We can see the warlike nature of Bitcoin. It is 100% non political, and amoral. Any way a person can get Bitcoins will go unquestioned for the simple reason that the elite enforcers will not have a clue who to question first. Bitcoins, at least for now, do not leave a trail.
THIS VIDEO SHOWS THE LAODICEANS FIGHTING BACK
I believe that, if there is a World War III, it will be a struggle between the top, the Nicolaitans, against the bottom, the Laodiceans. And, the Laodiceans will win. Antichrist will pick up on this and convince the Laodiceans he is their loving godfather.
Bit Coins will be impossible to regulate (at least for now). A Bit Coin based economy will be very hard to tax, and they can be protected from regulation due to the lack of access of banks or depositories. Taxation may well be reduced to toll booths and head tax and property tax like old England and African and Indian colonial days. A system of tax collection may be developed by governments to intrude into our virtual time to collect taxes.
Payroll withholding may be the only way governments could be sure to collect taxes, and then all off the record sales and transactions would be unseen.
The very rich will have two streams of activity, banking, which will be a token trick to make Caesar happy, and Bitcoin where the balance is held. The Vatican bank could also become available to the peasants worldwide if the Vatican accepts Bitcoin deposits.
Into this chaos the Antichrist will step, and he will convince the rulers of the world that he can bring the Laodiceans under control with his Mark. Can you see why the most seemingly rational and skeptical national rulers and bankers will be charmed by the Antichrist?
Market place Demand and Discrimination-
Examples- Organic sourcing has been forced on food marketers in spite of the fact that the US Federal Government has made no effort to encourage organics. Monsanto may soon be at war with Con Agra for destroying farm product demand worldwide. People in the EU, Africa, Australia, and many other nations are demanding that their governments bar GMOs.
Co-ops are cropping up all over the place. There are Credit Unions, Co-op Utility Companies, food co-ops, Real Estate co-ops, and many more. As this trend moves forward, the Laodiceans of this age will gain serious traction in the market place by rewarding those corporations which pamper the Laodiceans. The Nicolaitans will try to regulate them out of existence, but that will fail. The Nicolaitans will be faced with the problem of shooting the cow that gives the cream that rises to the top, and into their banks. They will complain and wiggle around, but they will bow to the masses over and over.
Many cities have regulated yard sales, farm markets, and flea markets by requiring a license, so people post their for-sale items on Craigslist and eBay. Sales are often arranged to be made by appointment, and the Nicolaitans have found no way to regulate this. Very localized community groups are forming on the Internet, and they buy and sell to one another, as well as defend one another against crime. Barter is becoming a serious part of commerce, and with Bitcoin as payment, the Nicolaitans are left 100% out in the cold.
We will soon see Nicolaitan business ventures in which the top courts the bottom openly. The top will offer ways for the bottom to function anonymously and function without oversight. This is already happening online in the world of information and data storage. When money becomes nothing but data (BITCOIN), the Nicolaitan who facilitates this ghostly empire will become very rich.
Fiat currency will be destroyed by Bitcoin, at least as the monetary power of the world. The Dollar will collapse soon as the world money markets and national banks of the world dump their bonds and investments in Dollars.
Why should we Bible Believers take this Seriously?
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Luke 17:26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
Jesus prophesied of buying and selling until the very last minute before the destruction of order by God during the last 3 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation. Or, the deadline may be the day Mystery Babylon Whore burns (see more on this below). In the midst of war, terror, and horrendous poverty in Developing Nations, much buying, and much partying will be the norm.
It is very easy to see the potential of Bitcoin, or some other such model, to destroy fiat currency. Also, we now see the bankers' extortion of the masses by using this false currency and inflation to suck the life out of "we the people" worldwide. This war between the masses (using Bitcoin), and the bankers and national governments using a New World Order currency, will be won by the Laodiceans. The bankers will be forced to accept and trade in Bitcoins, or something similar. Some banks already take Bitcoins. I assume they have a book keeper who at once converts Bitcoin investments into some fiat currency out of fear of Bicoin going bad.
Aaron Hawkins of stormcloudsgathering.com published a video recently which illustrates the problem with Bitcoin and those cryptocurrencies that follow its design:
Once Bitcoin is forced to put in place ANY form of centralized control or structuring, the back door is open to the world bankers, central governments, and financial criminals to grab a piece of the the action, that is, CONTROL AND REGULATION. So, I expect to see some innovation, using some algorithms to protect Bitcoin holders while protecting their anonymity. This could even come out of China or some other BRICS nation as a ploy to broker world commerce. China and Russia are still painted as tyrannical regimes by the USA and other Western propaganda machines. What more convincing way for China and Russia to give the world a big wet kiss than to protect their Bitcoins.
ARTICLE BY OMAGA SHOCK ONLINE WHICH DISCUSSES ANTICHRIST AND BITCOIN
This article will make it very clear that Antichrist is very close to offering the world the ultimate solution:
Bitcoin and the Antichrist
January 2, 2014
by John Little -
By now, it should be clear to all of us that the US dollar is doomed. We can’t save it, and I’m not sure that we would, if we could. The US monetary system is so damaged that it would take a superhuman effort to fix it. And, we’re fresh out of ‘superhuman’.
Worse, there doesn’t seem to be a currency out there that’s ready to take the place of the US dollar as the global reserve. The closest alternative is the Chinese Yuan, but the Chinese don’t seem to be interested in having the Yuan take on this role. Furthermore, the Yuan isn’t even backed by gold – at least, not yet. So, what do we have as an option?
There are those that have proposed Gold or Silver as the basis for a global monetary system. And, that idea has certainly gained a lot of traction lately. But, there’s a problem with this idea – governments don’t like gold. And, the globalists don’t like gold either – at least not in the hands of anyone but themselves.
Bitcoin and the Antichrist
Remember that everything that we are seeing now has been planned. As FDR once said:
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way. – Franklin Delano Roosevelt
The globalists do not want a monetary system where one country can dominate and corrupt it. They want something new, something global, and something… THEY can control. And, they’ve ‘stumbled’ across an idea that gives them everything they want. It will be new. It will be global. They’ll be able to control it. It won’t need to be connected to gold. It will replace the dollar. And, they’ve already given us a taste of this idea with the introduction of Bitcoin.
Will Bitcoin replace the dollar?
Would you believe the answer to that is no?
Well, it is no. Bitcoin CANNOT replace the dollar, but there is something that it CAN do. It can focus our minds on the possibility of a currency that is not backed by tangible assets like gold or silver – but is also not a fiat currency that can be corrupted by governments. I want to talk about those possibilities, but lets first talk about why Bitcoin is doomed to failure in its present form.
Each bitcoin contains a blockchain that is the record of every transaction using that bitcoin – every transaction since 2009. As Bitcoin gains in popularity and usage, each blockchain will increase in size. Right now the blockchain for most bitcoins is over a gigabyte in size. In the future, the bitcoin blockchain will increase to more than a terabyte. And THAT is just not going to work – especially if you are trying to create a global currency. But, Bitcoin is fulfilling an important role by illustrating the possibility of a currency that is not fiat, and not gold.
Is it a coincidence that Bitcoin made its appearance in 2009, just after the financial crisis of 2008?
Yeah. I don’t believe in coincidence, either.
Oh, I almost forgot. There’s another problem with Bitcoin – passwords. If you lose the password to your bitcoins, you’ve lost your bitcoins. And, there is no way to EVER get them back.
Mark of the Beast
But wait. What if there was a way to never need a password?
What if there was a way to verify your identity in such a way that you never, EVER needed a password?
What if… and I know that this sounds crazy, but… what if your identity was embedded on your skin or under your skin?
I mean, we could give it a number, with a special prefix like… I don’t know… let’s pick a number out of the air… something easy that no one would ever use… like… 666. And, every time a computer saw that prefix, it would know that your identification would follow. And, all your bitcoins could then be safely held in a central computer somewhere, and you would never need to worry about losing them.
Isn’t that cool?
Well yes, it IS true that no one could buy or sell without this special identifier. But then, EVERYONE would have this number on them. It would be perf…
…Wait. You don’t seem to be very enthusiastic.
Are you beginning to see how this could lead to the Antichrist system?
Now, let’s be clear. Bitcoin may fail. In fact, it may be designed to fail. And, it may even fail just at the point when we are looking for something to replace the dollar. But, it will not fail until it has fulfilled its mission of establishing the idea that there is an alternative to the dollar.
Remember that the globalists appear to be planning a collapse of the global monetary system in 2015. And, there appears to be NOTHING that is ready to step in and pick up the pieces… except… maybe… a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin.
Are you starting to see how the stage is being set for the coming of the Antichrist?
Are you ready for this?
Being ready means being born again and ready to be removed from this horror by Jesus Christ. But, the Rapture of the Church does not imply that we will not participate in the run up to the Great Tribulation. As I write, China and Asia are teetering over the abyss economically. Anything could happen over period of a couple of days which would crash the whole world economy and force massive change.
Once the transition has been accomplished from the Dollar, as world trade currency, to Bitcoin or the Globalist's monetary unit, this new system will then fail to fulfill its promises for reasons discussed above. At this point in the future, the Antichrist will probably have already been making himself popular as the answer man of the nations. He will then step forward and offer this foolproof monetary system-- A mark of personal identity which collects every possible bit of data of each user into one file, INCLUDING THE VICTIM'S WEALTH, HEALTH, AND BUYING POWER.
This Mark system is not evil in and of itself. Read that again please. The evil in it is that Satan is the power behind it. The Mark of the Beast, if Satan were removed from it, would solve many of the monetary ills of the world and free people from the bondage of criminal government, crooked bankers, and from muggers. Well, at least until is was hacked. The key factor to the Mark of the Beast, which may include an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device), is that it leaves the world of technology and is empowered by Satan himself, and this can only happen during the Great Tribulation. This will be the last tango of Satan before the Kingdom rule of Jesus Christ.
Ultimately, Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
That includes the heart of Satan and his Antichrist.
Big business will win the contest with big government, and has been doing so already.
CAUTION: We are not now factoring in the masses in rebellion, that is, the Laodiceans, in this sub-topic. We are only talking about the contest between the world's national leaders and the world's bankers. The men with the most money, bankers and merchants, will win. Or, more bluntly, the side with the biggest cash hoard will bribe and control the other side. Collectively, the world merchants and bankers have vastly more liquid cash than world government. If you think the USA has buying power, then please explain to me why the US Treasury has to keep printing more money. Answer: They have none.
This war in high places, in the shadows, is a war for world domination. Generally, world governing leaders will become less and less virile, and they will become more and more plain stupid. Like, "I'm afraid if you put 8000 more troops on Guam, it might just tip over.," and, "We need to pass this bill so that we can read it."
Only in as much as world governments team up with big business, will those governments thrive and gain traction in the contest for domination.
Example- Saudi Arabia is an exceptional example of a nation where government is based on business. Oil is the big driving force in all Saudi political and international action.
A huge contributing factor in this is what the Bible calls "strong delusion," or utter mental feeble mindedness, of the world's national rulers. God sends this mental delusion on purpose so that world leaders, those with the most powerful and articulate intellect, will be reduced to being imbeciles.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 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.
Their own greed has virtually neutered and spayed them. Big business has no trouble managing big governments ruled by mental midgets. The US House of Representatives and Senate have, in recent years, become a goon show. They no longer have men of stature who command the attention of the American people. The whole USA is mocking and laughing to its own government.
Russian business, in contrast, is driving Vladimir Putin, and Putin brings in the deals by shuttling around the world recruiting nations to trade with Russia and BRICS. Both big business and the masses benefit equally. This trend will not fail until the Antichrist takes control. The Laodiceans in Russia live with the Putin plan and brag about him. Propaganda is rampant in support of Putin by Russian big business as a reward to Putin for promoting Russian big business. The illusion of the US State Department is that the US can convince Russian citizens that they are miserable. It is not working. Putin keeps delivering the deals.
As I have been writing this article, Obamatrade has been fighting its way through Congress. This law will allow international corporations to claim that the sovereign laws, of any nation in which they do business, are restraining them from prospering. For example, Monsanto could sue France for making anti-GMO laws, and France, if they signed the Trans Atlantic Trade Treaty, would have to allow Monsanto to do anything they wished in marketing their GMOs.
This is why the Republicans have backed Obama on this bill. As crazy as it is to watch the Republicans assist Obama, and the Democrats attack the trade bill, the Republicans have many reasons to want this bill. It gives the oil companies of the Koch Brothers, and a hundred thousand other US companies, a way to void all the laws of the agreement nations governing commerce and trade and consumer protection made by local governments.
I suspect that Obama, or more accurately his handlers, see down the road that China and Russia will be forced to join the trade agreement if they want the marketing advantage offered by this lawless maneuver. But, I am convinced, based on Bible prophecy, that if there is any such trade agreement in China, it will be with BRICS.
It is rather obvious that this trade agreement will result in a rush to violate all pollution laws in the trade group as oil companies and other manufacturers claim that local pollution laws inhibit their ability to make a profit. This, ironically is how Obama is trashing his Climate Change legislation with his Obamatrade legislation. And again, this illustrates my point in claiming that God has indeed already sent "strong delusion" to world leaders. The real driving force in the world of politics and commerce worldwide is "stuck on stupid."
Finally, I tell you later in this article, based on the prophesy in the Revelation about the Whore burning, that the merchants of the world weep over Babylon's destruction just as much as the rulers of the world weep. Both weep as they see their assets in the Whore's bank burn and ascend into smoke. More on this later, but I think you can see how the merchants, that is, corporations, of the world are now ruling the political systems of the world.
But, keep in mind that this is the last age of the Times of the Gentiles, or the Church Age, and the Laodiceans are in power. The Laodiceans will also win in this war for economic power. The Putin and Russia model makes it very clear how business will transform itself. It will gain power by pampering and responding to the Laodiceans and by giving them value without offending them. You may not believe this now, but the market force against GMOs, and other corruption of the market place, proves that this is in progress already. What the US Government refuses to do about GMOs, due to its cozy bribery affair with Monsanto, the Laodiceans are doing in the market place. Super markets and restaurants are advertising "Non GMO" products, and the trend is growing. The US Government has tried to discourage organics by making regulations, but the organics proliferate as the market place demands them.
So, while the merchants, or corporations, of the world dominate the Nicolaitan top, the Laodiceans will keep forcing the top to deliver what they crave. Basically, what I believe is presented in Bible prophecy for the immediate future is massive anarchy, but not with guns. The Laodiceans will fight the top with purchasing power, civil disobedience, state level rebellious legislation, and with a new monetary system which gives the masses anonymous monetary power.
THE ANTICHRIST SYSTEM IS MONETARY AND MARKET BASED, NOT WAR BASED
The Antichrist comes in weak and conquers by flattery.
Daniel 11:21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
Business and religion!!
This gathering is an alternative, made up of world class do-gooders, to the evil stealth of the Bilderbergers. It is a coming together of religion and world power people. Their objective is to facilitate the good of the nations while making a good return on their own investment.
In the video above, you see Rick Warren explaining how the "faith based" force will help business and government fix the world. This is the mind set of the Antichrist. He will come in with the sweet and helpful voice of Rick Warren and offer to facilitate the good works and pleasant intentions of the world elite. Never mind that greed always drives the world elite. Antichrist, like Rick Warren, will seem to be the key to give the process of world conquest a sweet voice and lovely pious superficial appeal. The masses will believe they are finally being loved and taken care of, and the governors and bankers of the world will stand behind the Antichrist and smile like cherubs as Antichrist explains how good life is going to be. Since Satan is the father of lies, everything Antichrist promises will be a lie, and the opposite will happen.
Jesus said, in John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
This gathering of bankers, governors, and Christian leaders happened long ago in Europe, circa 1850, when King Leopold owned the Congo personally. This was possibly the only time in the colonial era when one ruler owned part of Africa outright. Thus, King Leopold could do exactly what he wished with the Congo. He called together a group of leading thinkers from several European nations, and they came up with a plan to civilize the Congo while garnering trade and profit from Congo. They hired Henry Mortimer Stanley, who had previously found David Livingston, and they commissioned Stanley to establish trade centers up the Congo River while facilitating the missionaries who were also to go up the river. They sent Stanley with a set of ethical and business rules to follow, and he did extremely well at doing as he was hired to do. This plan is eerily the identical motivation of Davos.
Ironically, and for a period of time, King Leopold's strategy worked. This was because a system of ethics was set in place to control the development of the Congo while reaping a profit. Christian missionaries were encouraged to participate, and Satan was not in total control, as he will be during the Great Tribulation. Good intentions are often noble on the face of it, but fallen sinners set out to implement the good intentions, and it all runs into the ditch. And thus, the Congo soon turned to a struggle between several European nations. When the elephants fight, only the grass gets hurt.
The Mark of the Beast is not government or military driven, it is market driven. People will be looking for a political tyranny, and while they are distracted, the Antichrist will offer them a hack proof buying and selling option-- a mark. People will be delighted, take the mark, and go on looking for a political tyrant. People who refuse the Mark will not have a government agents knocking on the door-- they will just starve because they cannot buy.
The photo shows how someone is totally driven with the terror of the Antichrist as a Hitler tyrant. In fact, he will be flattering of everyone, and he will enter in without force. THAT is what the Bible says in the book of Daniel. If you prophecy guru teaches that the Antichrist enters violently, that prophecy teacher is off his trolley.
What the Mark is, and what it is not
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.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
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:
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.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
Verses 11 through 15- This is the entrance of the resurrected Beast, as it were. This is done to mimic the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Along with other Bible texts, it becomes clear that the Antichrist with the good manners and flattering everyone will now turn nasty in temperament, possibly due to the wound in his head. And, get this straight, he will not enforce his Mark and tyrannical system of world commerce until AFTER his wound and recover. This then means that the Mark enforcement universally will not happen until AFTER the first three and one half years of the Great Tribulation.
This also means that those Bible believers who are desperate to get in on the drama of the Great Tribulation, and who claim that the Rapture of the Church is "Mid Tribulation," will still not have to take the Mark by force. This also means that whatever you think the Mark is, an RFID or some other technology, it will not be forced on you if you are truly born again.
Verse 16- The Mark is universal. Every person, regardless of rank, wealth, or position, will take the Mark. There will be no choice. To refuse the Mark will be to reject the Antichrist whom the world perceives to be the Messiah.
Verse 17- Anyone who refuses the Mark will starve. They will not be able to work or conduct business. Any who try to work around the Mark will be hunted down and tormented or killed. Also, in this verse we see that people have a choice as to the Mark. This is a bit confusing if we listen too much to recent Bible prophecy teachers. They are all convinced that the Mark is like a Social Security card which numbers the people. This verse clearly indicates that some people choose to take only the number of Beast's name. This is not a personal number of the recipient-- it is some number belonging to the Antichrist, the Beast. Based on the obsession of New World Order gurus today, we must still assume that all people will be numbered anyway in order to control all business. But, the numbering of people for commercial reasons will not be the same thing as the number or the Beast, or the name of the Beast, in their foreheads.
Verse 17 also implies that some people will only have the name of the Beast in their forehead. This does not serve the accounting, tracking, and controlling of people which a number does. So, I assume that some other numbering arrangement is in place along with the Mark for those who chose his name. This then could be an FRID or something similar.
Verse 18- 666- what does this stand for? Six is the number of man in the Bible. So, it seems to be a effort to make man into the tripartite godhead in the place of God. Satan, in the Garden of Eden, told Eve, "Ye shall be as gods." Eastern mystics preach this, and most Charismatic alleged Bible teachers now tell their people that they are gods. The masses, during the Great Tribulation, will all believe they are gods.
Revelation 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Verse 8- This fall of Babylon coincides with the detailed description of the fall of Babylon in Revelation chapter 18. We cover that in detail below when studying the destruction of the Vatican and united world religion.
Verse 9-10- Extreme punishment and damnation will be the experience of anyone who takes the Mark of the Beast during the Great Tribulation. They receive no mercy and no second chance. John MacArthur claims that some who take the Mark of the Beast will still be saved later. He claims that if this were not possible, there would be no one left for Christ to start his Kingdom. This is another MacArthurism in which he contradicts the literal use of the text by using human reason and misplaced compassion. Those who make it through the Great Tribulation to enter the Messianic Kingdom will do so by some other means than taking the Mark and recanting later.
Verse 12- We see the contrast of the wicked who take the Mark and the saints of the Great Tribulation who refuse the Mark. There is NO gray area here. There are only two groups of people worldwide..... those who take the Mark, and those who reject it and are martyred for Christ.
Again, the alleged scholar will ask, "So, where does Christ get all the people for his Kingdom, and why do the Great Tribulation death totals in prophecy add up to about two thirds of the world population. Is it not possible that some who have the Mark will be saved and enter the Kingdom?
All I can do to help you who seem to want to fix things for God is this:
Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Those who survive the Great Tribulation to enter the Messianic Kingdom must not have the name of Satan in their foreheads because that place if reserved for the righteous who later enter the New Jerusalem. Christ will not compromise on that. The only thing I can say is that the Revelation 13 text above implies that there are those who refuse the Mark and are martyred for it. There are those who make it through the Great Tribulation to enter the Messianic Kingdom. So, if God in his mercy allows some to hide and avoid the Mark, that is his business. Only a Calvinist would balk at letting God figure it out to his glory.
Here is the reward for those who refuse the Mark and die for Christ:
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
So, the Mark of the Beast is a huge issue, both now in the run up technology, and after Bible believers are gone and the whole world is engulfed in Satanic tyranny. At that point, taking the Mark will have extreme results, including damnation and hell for eternity.
I will refuse any RFID chip offered to me because I do not believe the lies of public officials. I believe the RFID chip will have terrible consequences by and by. But, let us make one thing clear-- The RFID chip is NOT the Mark of the Beast at this time. The Beast, that is, Antichrist, is not here, and the world is far from being ready to abandon cash, credit cards, and other forms of monetary transactions. So, if you receive an RFID chip, you will not go to hell for it. Furthermore; RFID chips are often implanted in the body far from the right hand or the forehead.
What is so Seductive about the Mark of the Beast?
The Mark is very desirable, that is, if it were not for the Antichrist and spiritual factor. Taking the Mark will be an act of worship of Satan's Antichrist, but the vast majority of the world's people will care very little about the religious factor. According to Jesus in Matthew 24:28-29, they are already pagans now like the people in the day of Noah.
Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
The good life prevails today around the world. The horrors you hear of in various nations, and the enormous slums in Africa and Asia, are out of sight and out of mind as the flow of life brings more and more toys and sensations for sexual lust, for the appetites, and the lust for leisure. And, this will rage on right into the Great Tribulation for the first three and one half years. The illusion will be that the Antichrist and his Mark greatly enhance and facilitate the world's lust for their sensual appetites.
The emotional reasons that the Mark is taken so eagerly are:
It will stop all crime in buying and selling, at least it will seem to.
It will replace purchasing methods which require cash or other devices which need to be carried about and can be lost. Credit card fraud will be a thing of the past.
It will be very convenient. Already, RFIDs are in use in various areas of the world and the USA, and we see videos of people walking through check out lines, or into buildings, and they simply wave at a device on the wall and keep walking.
It will be promised that criminal fraud will be virtually ended. Drug lords, who traffic in only cash to protect their identity, will not be able to hide their trade.
If we combine the Bitcoin principles, though a new unit of money will likely replace Bitcoin, the principle of wealth floating in space anonymously could well be part of the Mark economy. All taxes would be collected at payday, and governments would be forced to live with only what they collect legally. The suggestion that big government would be restrained by the RFID would be highly seductive.
So, those who reject the Mark will be painted with a broad brush of "terrorist," "criminal," or "suspect." Even today, the US Government is requiring banks to question people moving large sums of money. Cash is being demonized. In truth, we are psychologically ready for the Mark of the Beast NOW.
PART ONE- THE SATANIC HERITAGE OF RFID AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST
This one will startle you as you see how old this technology and mind set is.
The question is, what are the consequences if the Antichrist Mark, possibly an RFID, is wiped clean by criminals or by an energy field? There are online tutorials telling how to use magnets to wipe an RFID clean. It seems quite possible to me that an EMP nuclear device, used during Great Tribulation war events, could fry millions of RFIDs, thus leaving millions of people virtually as non-persons AND financially zeroed out in seconds.
The present VeraChip RFID is being prepared for satellite interface so that every person on the planet can be connected, and thus, watched and tracked anywhere on earth. But, a large Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun, as the world experienced in 1859, melting down telegraph wires, would blow up all satellites, and RFIDs would become disconnected at once and worthless.
With progress and more miniaturization the RFID could be loaded with a person's whole life history and validation for everything he needs. This would include home and office entry, toll booth on the Interstate, and the checkout at the super market. Literally, he could become a non-person to the rest of the world. With the ongoing mind meddling, in which the brain is loaded with prepackaged data, the RFID could become a piggyback device for the downloading of brain data. These two concepts could eliminate the need for education. The needed data at each age of development could be added, and vocational changes could be done in minutes later in life. If the Mark, as with the RFID, were to be hacked or wiped, the person would become helpless. All his reminders and bells that guide him through life would stop going off, and he would become a basket case in minutes.
The RFID we are now watching gain popularity, and as seen in the video above, may cause a cancerous tumor, either in the vicinity of the RFID, or elsewhere in the body. If you skipped the video, you missed the evidence this is the case NOW. There is biblical evidence that suggests that the RFID chip will be used as the Mark of the Beast:
Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
There is no indication from the Bible text above that the sore results in death. Rather, the Mark of the Beast, possibly an RFID, will have to be left embedded in order for the victim to function in society. The result will be that the vast majority of people on earth will have a gross running sore in their forehead or right hand. The social effect will be horrendous, causing people to avoid one another, and causing them to hate the Antichrist. By the end of the Great Tribulation there will be NOTHING but hate and revulsion between all people, and between the masses and the Antichrist. Hate will be the only emotion rampant.
The final seduction of the Mark of the Beast will very likely be the Robin Hood effect. In the Revelation 13:16 verse above we see that "both small and great" will be brought by force to level ground. We also see that Antichrist, the prince of Daniel 11, will take the treasures of the nations for himself. I personally suspect Antichrist will then dole out some of that wealth to give the impression he is solving world poverty.
Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land (Israel), and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
All of this Satanic soap opera will be in the name of Jehovah God of the Bible, and THAT is the most powerful seduction. Long ago Satan said, "I will be like the Most High," and the Great Tribulation is the era in which he convinces the world he is God. An old friend, now with the Lord, said he believed the Antichrist would carry a King James Bible. The world will be so deluded that they will not have a clue what the Bible says about anything, but the King James Bible is the ancient standard, and the deception will be strong.
There are two books exposing the horror of the Vatican behind the official curtain. I have read both of these, and I have a Tridentine priest friend who passes me information on the Vatican. He confirms that Malachi Martin's books are highly accurate. Understand, they are historic fiction. He was a Ph.D. in the Vatican Seminary, and if he had simply exposed the truth in direct form, he would have been snuffed. But, the events and activities in both books ARE history. The names are the only thing changed. If you have never read these two books, they are a must:
The Cold War has ended. With a scope and daring not possible until now, an unlikely international alliance of top-level political, financial, and religious interests sees the way clear at last to its ultimate goal: the establishment of a single global society. Utopia. These are men with nothing in common but immense power and a towering ambition for still more. With world unity and prosperity as their slogan--and with betrayal, scandal, and murder as their ready weapons--they have the means and the will to capture as their own the perfect global machinery for their plans: the oldest, wiliest, and most stable political chancery in the world--the Vatican.
At the vortex of this lethal struggle stands the embattled Pope, a geopolitical genius whose elimination is the short-term solution to a long-term goal, and two American brothers, Paul and Christian Gladstone, one a lawyer and the other a priest, who appear to be the perfect pawns. One falls prey to the sharp teeth of greed for power. The other will become one of the Slavic Pontiff's closest allies...and will discover the darkest secrets at the very heart of papal Rome. From America to Europe to Russia, in broad landscapes and clandestine corridors, a rich and varied cast--presidents and politicos, simple saints and savvy sinners, popes and pope-makers--clash with one another amid dramatic and sometimes bloody events that will affect the destiny of every person alive today.
Martin, consummate Vatican insider and intelligence expert, could reveal the untold
story behind the Vatican's role in today's winner-take-all race against time to
establish, maintain, and control the first one-world government.
While this is a bit dated, you will see the most political and the most deadly era in modern Vatican history under the stealth of Pope John Paul II. You will also see how men who nearly hate one another have joined forces for the sole reason that the Vatican might give them the leverage to rise to the top. This whole process is very much still in motion, especially in Europe.
There is a religious unity being driven by the Vatican, Pope Francis in particular, which is a fulfillment of the long standing Jesuit program to break down all resistance to the Pope in all other branches of Christendom. This was formally delineated in Vatican II in the 1960s, and the present Pope is making a vicious assault on every Christian on earth to threaten anyone who declines to run back to Papa.
As a side note, we consider whether or not the Pope could be the Antichrist or the false prophet. Many Catholics consider the Vatican today to be a virtual moral and spiritual sewer. Malachi Martin made this abundantly clear in his historic novels about the Vatican, Keys of This Blood, and Windswept House.
Here is what several Popes have said about themselves:
Pope Nicholas I said, “I am in all and above all, so that God himself, and I, the vicar of God, hath both one consistory…and I am able to do almost all that God can do…I then, being above all…seem by this reason, to be above all gods.”
Pope Pius V blasphemed, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.”
Pope Innocent III said “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.”
Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.”
How could the Vatican be a center of economic power dedicated to Satan and the Antichrist? Malachi Martin, a former professor in the Vatican Seminary, is quoted from Windswept House:
"Suddenly it became unarguable that now during this papacy, the Roman Catholic organization carried a permanent presence of clerics who worshipped Satan and liked it; of bishops and priests who sodomized boys and each other; of nuns who performed the “Black Rites” of Wicca, and who lived in lesbian relationships... every day, including Sundays and Holy Days, acts of heresy and blasphemy and outrage and indifference were committed and permitted at holy Altars by men who had been called to be priests.
Sacrilegious actions and rites were not only performed on Christ’s Altars, but had the connivance or at least the tacit permission of certain Cardinals, archbishops, and bishops... In total number they were a minority—anything from one to ten percent of Church personnel. But of that minority, many occupied astoundingly high positions or rank....
The facts that brought the Pope to a new level of suffering were mainly two: The systematic organizational links—the network, in other words that had been established between certain clerical homosexual groups and Satanist covens. And the inordinate power and influence of that network." (pp. 492-3)
At the time of his passing on July 27, 1999, Martin was at work on what he said would be his most controversial and important book. Primacy: How the Institutional Roman Catholic Church became a Creature of The New World Order was to deal with power and the papacy.
This work was to analyze the revolutionary shift that lies at the heart of what many see as the breakdown of papal power. It was to be a book of predictions about the Vatican and the world in the first decades of the new millennium.
Malachi Martin never recanted any of his claims that the scene in Windswept House was based on an actual satanic ritual in the Vatican in the first days of the reign of Pope Paul VI, nor that there exists a general satanic conspiracy within the Roman Catholic Church."
If the Vatican can drift into Satan worship, human sacrifice, and the worst sins of Sodom, it can be highly prized by Satan as the economic center of his final world rule. Investigative reporters have traced the founding of the Vatican Bank back to the US Mafia, the Colombian Medellin, and a very secret order of Freemasons, Satan's little buddies. Also, there is evidence that all manner of criminals and evil world leaders hide their cash in the Vatican Bank. Please remember this when you hear Pope Francis rage against capitalism. Without criminal capitalism, there would be no Vatican Bank.
The ongoing campaign by Pope Francis against all non-Catholic Christian groups, as he tries to force them into unity with the Pope, happens to coincide eerily with the rise of the Vatican Bank as the world's secret and most powerful bank.
Tony Palmer was the shill of Pope Francis until he died. In a few short years, Palmer conned thousands into the fold of the Pope, His Hellish Father. Here is Tony Palmer at work and exposed by Doug Batchelor:
CAVEAT: Doug Batchelor is a Seventh Day Adventist, and in any way in which he may exalt Sabbath keeping as essential to Christian living, and if he claims Ellen G. White to be a source of Truth in any way, we consider that teaching heresy. But, his treatment of Tony Palmer and the Pope is done in well based Bible truth.
Once there are only two religious entities on earth, the united church under the Pope, and the religious rebels, the way will be much clearer for the Mark of the Beast. Those who then reject the Mark will already have distinguished themselves as rebels against the Pope's church unity. The world will hate them, and the way will be open for a new Inquisition lead by the Antichrist and fully approved by the Pope of Rome, that is, if the Pope is not the Antichrist himself, as many prophecy teachers suspect.
The days of the Whore Roman Catholic Church are numbered. The whole Roman Whore system will burn in one hour, but until then, the Pope and his lap dogs like Billy Graham, Rick Warren, and Joel Osteen will be slowly engulfing all of Christendom with lovey dovey hugs and slobbery Papal kisses, literally.
Israeli President Shimon Peres and Pope Francis at the Vatican.
Back to Bitcoin.
What if the Vatican Bank offered to referee Bitcoin and make sure buyers of Bitcoins were protected and that their transactions were 100% confidential? The Vatican Bank already is the ONLY banking system worldwide which is not required to report it depositors to the World Banking Commission, and thus expose tax dodgers and the drug cartel. The World Bank has wimped out on enforcing this with the Vatican Bank, saying, "We had to decide if the Vatican Bank is a bank or a national treasury. So, we chose to consider them a nation, not a bank."
If Bitcoin were to become the currency of the Vatican Bank, and if the Antichrist used Bitcoin as his currency of world trade and exchange, the next discussion would become crystal clear.
Who will Enforce and Punish those who Refuse the Mark?
John describes his vision of the woman, a Great Whore in other Bible texts, riding a Beast.
Revelation 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
4 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:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 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.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
The Beast, that is, the Antichrist and his political system, carry the Whore, the Harlot Church. This means that the Antichrist facilitates the religious dominance of the Roman Whore Church worldwide by force of his Mark. Participation in the economic system via the Mark will involve full participation in the religious system of the Roman Vatican Whore Church.
It is not clear from the Scripture's prophetic texts exactly who enforces the Mark system and Antichrist rule, but if the Vatican, and the Pope are the Whore who rides the Beast, then the Vatican already has an enforcement office:
CONGREGATION FOR THE DOCTRINE
OF THE FAITH
Founded in 1542 by Pope Paul III with the Constitution "Licet ab initio," the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was originally called the Sacred Congregation of the Universal Inquisition as its duty was to defend the Church from heresy. It is the oldest of the Curia's nine congregations.
Pope St. Pius X in 1908 changed the name to the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office. It received its current name in 1965 with Pope Paul VI. Today, according to Article 48 of the Apostolic Constitution on the Roman Curia, "Pastor Bonus", promulgated by the Holy Father John Paul II on June 28, 1988, «the duty proper to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is to promote and safeguard the doctrine on the faith and morals throughout the Catholic world: for this reason everything which in any way touches such matter falls within its competence.»
The congregation is now headed by a Prefect: H.Em. Card. Gerhard Ludwig Müller. It has a Secretary, His Excellency Msgr. Luis F. Ladaria, S.I., an Assistant (Adjunct) Secretary His Excellency Msgr. Joseph Augustine Di Noia (Usa), an under-secretary, Msgr. Damiano Marzotto, a Promotor of Justice Rev. Fr. Robert Joseph Geisinger, S.I, and a staff of 47, according to the "Annuario Pontificio" or "Pontifical Yearbook." It also has 23 members - cardinals, archbishops and bishops - and 28 consulters. Given the nature of its task, congregation work is divided into four distinct sections: the doctrinal office, the disciplinary office, the matrimonial office and that for priests.
The congregation, says the "Activity of the Holy See," in conformity with its raison d'être, promotes in a collegial fashion encounters and initiatives to «spread sound doctrine and defend those points of Christian tradition which seem in danger because of new and unacceptable doctrines.»
For several years the congregation, together with the Vatican Publishing House, has been issuing volumes containing the texts of its single documents, as well as articles relative to its work which appear in the daily edition of "L'Osservatore Romano". Annually, it holds plenary assemblies.
When bishops are in Rome for their quinquennial "ad limina" visit, they call on the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, as they do with other dicasteries of the Roman Curia, «for an exchange of information and reciprocal concerns.»
There is also ample collaboration between the Pontifical Biblical Commission and the International Theological Commission, each of which has as president the Archbishop Prefect of Doctrine of the Faith. Weekly congregation meetings are held, usually on Wednesday, and are attended by officials and consultors. * * *
This was taken from the Vatican web site HERE.
Verse 6 above makes it very clear that the Whore Church, based in the Vatican and including all world religions, will become drunk on the blood of Great Tribulation saints. This seems to imply that the Whore Church will at least enforce the compliance of all people worldwide to participate in the Whore religion. This implies also that the Whore Vatican Church will enforce membership, and death will be the penalty for declining and standing with Jesus Christ alone.
Thus, the quote above, describing the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith will be the enforcer if history tells us who does the persecuting of Tribulation believers. This is the ancient Office of the Inquisition. It was this office during the Middle Ages which tortured and murdered millions of Protestants and Catholics who had any difference of opinion with the Roman Catholic Church. The fact that the Vatican has kept this office open, in spite of the embarrassing nature of their history, proves to all attentive watchers that the Whore of Rome fully intends to kill and torture again if they believe it serves their purpose.
In this respect we can see the easy marriage of the Roman Catholic Church to Islam. Both call for the slaughter of any who decline their doctrine, and some of you reading here may see the day when the Catholic Pope and the Islamic Mullahs join forces to massacre all who decline the coming World Religion of Rome.
Thus, anyone who refuses the Mark of the Beast may well receive a visit from the Office of the Inquisitor, now known as The Holy Office. It may also be that local law enforcement will be put under dire threat from the Office of the Inquisitor if they do not arrest and deliver up descenters to the Roman Whore for torture. This was the technique used in the Middle (or Dark) Ages, and it was the technique used by the Reformers John Calvin and Ulrich Zwingli to round up Anabaptists for torture and death.
A side thought presents itself-- based on the Reformed Movement's history of persecuting, torturing, and killing Anabaptists in 1500-1600, we may assume that the vast majority of Reformed "believers" are not born again, have murder in their hearts, and will eagerly join the Whore Church of the Vatican. They are already doing so in some cases.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE OFFICE OF THE INQUISITION BEING USED IN JUNE 2015 AS THIS ARTICLE WAS BEING WRITTEN.
How does the Vatican Bank Inherit World Dominance?
The central banks of most Western nations are in trouble to some degree or other. Lending rates have been hovering around 0% with the US Federal Reserve for years. The Federal Reserve, and the US Treasury Department have had an ongoing scam in place for many years, in which they devalue the dollar by giving each other permission to print fiat money based on nothing to back it. This produces the cream that rises to the top and is skimmed off into keep pockets.
So, why 0% lending rate? Why shut down the process by which the filthy rich get richer? The obvious reason is that a crisis bigger than their greed is looming. Only this could explain the deferring of the scam. So, this tells us that the economy, especially the dollar, is about to crash, and the hidden hand up above are trying to save the life of the cow that produces the cream. But, the crash is historically imminent.
The prediction by the talking heads on US TV, and on YouTube, is that, if the dollar crashes, the whole world will crash. There is no reason to believe this stupid claim. China is now the world's most powerful economy, and they have huge reserves of gold. US sanctions against Russia have forced the Russians to go it alone, and that is how to escape from the dollar. Many OPEC nations are now trading in currencies other than the dollar. The crash of the dollar will be a serious hiccough, but the world will stagger on and survive.
But, there will be a serious empty space in world trade and commercial enterprise. The lack of a world currency will cause mild chaos as nations have to find a new common exchange for global transactions. Thus, world governments and banks will soon cave in and play the Bitcoin game, as some have already done. But, this will result in the defanging of big government's taxing options, and this move to Bitcoin will empower the Laodiceans via the market place. The Vatican will pander to the Laodiceans by being very charming to the masses, and I predict the Vatican will accept deposits in Bitcoin.
The Vatican will enter the Bitcoin transition, and they may actually lead the way. They will claim that the poor finally have a bank and monetary unit which will protect them from being raped by Big Banks and Big Government. This theme is already a large item in Pope Francis' speeches. The only innovation would be that they Vatican may convince the world that Bitcoin has become vastly cumbersome due to the monster download with every new account to protect the truly anonymity of Bitcoin. The message will be, "The nicest men in the world, me, Pope Francis, is inviting the world to just come to Papa, trust us to keep your currency safe, and download our new currency, Vatcoin. No one will know how much you have in the Vatican Bank except Pope Francis."
I did not totally invent that. It is true that the final book keeping bottom line of the Vatican Bank is known to no one but the Pope. Virtually no banking system in the world is as secret and well guarded as the Vatican Bank.
The present Pope Francis is becoming a folk hero because he washes the feet of beggars and kisses women's feet. He has gone soft on sodomy, claiming, "Who am I to judge.....?" He refused to judge sodomy in the Vatican because he is a sodomite faggot Pope like many who went before him. As is prophesied of the Antichrist, he must have no desire for women.
Daniel 11:36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.
Pope Francis' lack of desire for women, and his obvious zeal to protect sodomites from inspection, will soon charm the masses. Sodomy will even become an exalted life style in all Catholic churches. Gay marriages will be performed in all Catholic churches.
The Antichrist honors both the God of the Bible, AND he honors a god whom his fathers knew not. This god whom the Christian Church did not honor may well be Allah, the god of Islam. Pope Francis is rapidly moving to become the darling of the Middle East, and the US and EU may soon find that they have lost control of the Middle East to a Pope who conquers by flattery without shooting one shot.
And, how will the Vatican gain this control in the Middle East? They will open the bank to all parties in the Middle East regardless of what side of the ongoing conflict they are on.
I know this open bank to world criminals will happen because when Msgr. Calvi rejuvenated the Vatican Bank in 1970 he brought in the American Mafia, the Colombian Medellin, and a very secret new lodge of Freemasons to help fund the bank and set new policy. So, the Vatican Bank could easily be taking deposits right now from The Islamic State, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Israel. Since all deposits are 100% secret, no one need be embarrassed for deposits they have in the bank used by their enemy.
This is how the Vatican will dominate the world. And, Antichrist will love it as long as some way is arranged for him to get a cut of the cake. If the Pope happens to be the Antichrist, so much the better for the game plan.
HERE IS A DISCUSSION OF VATICAN ISSUED CURRENCY
Will this currency evolve into the currency of Antichrist? It is tied to the Euro now, but it could easily be morphed into Vatcoin.
By the time Antichrist presents himself, the world's bankers will have been forced to marry themselves to the Vatican Bank and possibly Bitcoin/Vatcoin, or eventually, whatever the Antichrist arranges to replace Bitcoin.
So, if the Pope is the Antichrist, and Pope Francis certainly fits the description, then he already has his bank in place, and the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and all world governments and banks have no access or control over the Vatican Bank. Antichrist will have total control, once the Western nations' banking system goes belly up.
Can you see how very close we may be to the end of the Church Age.
ART BELL INTERVIEW WITH MALACHI MARTIN JUST BEFORE MARTIN DIED.
This interview explains how the Catholic Church has become a Democracy with a kind of Parliament. This system, while we Bible believers don't worry about it, morphs the Catholic Church into a world government competing with other world political forces. The only question is, is the Catholic Church winning? The Vatican will win, in my view, because religion has more cultural power that politics.
I am personally coming to see that we are headed for two forces in contest for world power:
The Antichrist who is now represented by the Vatican on one side.....
The Prince of Meshech, Vladimir Putin, on the other side.
The USA will completely fade soon, and Europe will become a toothless hound.
This text is the clue that this is the final power struggle:
Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.
42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.
Get this straight folks- The USA is nowhere in Bible prophecy. At any instant God will destroy the USA's place in the international community so that the US cannot duck about in the Middle East and get in the way of prophetic progress. Personally, I suspect the USA will be taken apart by rebellion along the various states, and, after Washington DC trues to bash heads for a while, the whole thing will break up into small states or regional unions. This will make very sure the Middle East, Russia, Israel, and Europe are not overshadowed by some big bully, as they are now.
The only other entity during the tenure of the Antichrist are the Kings of the East.
The Roman Catholic Church has been infiltrated itself, and all Reformed Church groups, and even Fundamental Baptist groups, are also infiltrated. I would not be so adamant about this if it had not happened to me. A church I pastored was infiltrated by Catholic plants on assignment to destroy our assembly. And, they nearly pulled it off. Only after moving on to another church did our family start comparing notes, and we finally saw a treacherous picture of intrigue and stealth against us. The main culprits in this are the Jesuits and Opus Dei.
But, the Vatican, as a world power, will remain a central player until she burns, and that is next in this study.
The Burning of the Whore
There is a happy, though terrifying, ending to this spiritual plague in Rome.
The problem with the great solution of the Vatican for the world economies, and for trade and commerce, is that this is the last tango for the love of money for the Times of the Gentiles. At some point just before or after this vast shift in world economic and banking activity, the true Bible believers in Jesus Christ will be removed to the presence of Christ himself in heaven. This is often referred to as the Rapture by Christians. Immediately after this event the prophetic clock is set for seven years of unbridled wickedness by man, by concurrent conquest of the world by the Antichrist, and during the last three and one half years of the seven, the wrath of God. Every well laid scheme of mice and men in the whole world will be trashed by God personally. This seven years is also referred to by Christ as the Great Tribulation.
But, God follows up on his Word stating, 1 Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Thus, God attacks the root of all human wickedness-- the world's economies, their investments, and the very money in their pockets or bank accounts by which they survive. It is hard to even imagine the extreme misery the world will experience when their Mark, which they took from the Antichrist, is zeroed out and they cannot buy a crust of bread. The following verses describe the results:
Revelation 6:5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
Based on other Bible texts, we know that a day's wage, when the above verses were given by God to John, was one penny. Thus, enough flour to make about three loaves of bread will cost a day's wage. Some have associated this with the weather disruption and famine God brings to the world during the Great Tribulation. This may well be part of this terrible time of famine, but it seems that the total lack of buying power will contribute immensely to this time of universal starvation.
This "Babylonian" spiritual and political monster, AKA the Vatican Whore Church, which rules the world's commerce and political economies by holding its investments, will crash and burn, literally. Some conflagration of some sort, whether from God, or from men whom God drives to rage and aggression, will burn up all the wealth and economic power of the world in an hour. This event may be accompanied by a solar EMP which will destroy all stored data. All backups will be wiped clean. Virtually the whole world will be zeroed out in one hour.
The detail used in the description of this future event should cause any unbeliever in Jesus Christ to want to make his peace with Jesus Christ NOW by seeking out the Gospel of Jesus Christ and confessing his faith in him.
Revelation 18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
9 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,
10 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.
11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
This is total destruction, including all data backups and records of investments. But, to the world at large, those put their wealth into the Whore Vatican Bank, everything they deposited there will be virtually gone. This will then result in a total collapse of commerce and monetary exchange worldwide.
Who weeps? Only governments? The Merchants of the World also Weep.
The Vatican Bank is thus destined to become the financial power house of both the merchants of the world AND the rulers of the New World Order. This can be assumed if we believe that the Great Whore of world religion is headquartered in the Vatican with the Pope as leader, even as Antichrist himself. Both the merchants and the bankers of the world will have their financial power invested in the Vatican Bank. This is why both the merchants AND the rulers of the world are weeping afar off in verses 9, 11, and 15. When God repeats things three times we may assume the event will be horrendous. Economies will crash overnight, and rich and poor alike will be made beggars.
We have seen that the Vatican, center of the world's most powerful false religion, is already connected with the market place, world banking, and possibly Bitcoin. As secret wealth pours into the Vatican Bank, we may very well be watching as the pile of wealth in the above prophecy is being gathered in one central place.
You need to see how the Vatican has become the most powerful dictatorship on earth, and you need to realize that the Vatican Bank is potentially the most powerful bank on earth. This is because only one man knows exactly what happens in the Vatican Bank-- the Pope. There is vast potential for intrigue and manipulation of virtually any world government based on the secret accounts in the Vatican Bank.
THE BANK OF GOD
The reason I can believe Pope Francis can make the Vatican Bank into the central bank of the world?????
If you watched the whole video, you must agree that no bank in world history is dirtier, and thus, just the sort of financial institution Satan would want for his Antichrist kingdom. The world is so charmed by Pope Francis that it will never occur to the demented and deluded rulers of the world that the Vatican Bank's history makes it the last place where a sane person should deposit his wealth.
Oil has to figure into the mix of End Times political and monetary policy of the Antichrist. The world must have oil products to sustain the good life, and Jesus told us in Matthew 24 that the masses will be buying and selling and giving and taking in marriage.
We see in the news that Saudi Arabia is promising no more $100 per barrel oil. Why? Answer: They intend to make oil into money for themselves by letting it flow. Saudi Arabia and Iran, two very large oil exporters, are now trading in gold and in Chinese Yuan. If and when the Saudis and Iranians join BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), the USA will be shut out of the world markets. Europe will make trade agreements with BRICS, and the USA will crash. As I write, Vladimir Putin is chatting quietly with German Chancellor Merkel about natural gas arrangements.
And, oil will be the principle factor driving the transition to a global economy and world government. Good-bye global warming carbon tax. No one but flaming Liberal nations will buy into this.
"We the people" Laodiceans around the world, will be charmed, and their demand will keep driving the oil system. Add Bitcoin, and the world will no longer need anyone's currency. Bitcoin could eventually be backed by oil reserves. There is some serious evidence that oil replenishes itself. This has happened in the San Juaquin Valley of California. So, as close as we are to the Rapture of the Lord's Church, it is very obvious that oil will be at the center of world commerce. This is why I dealt with oil last in this discussion. It even enters into Bible prophecy:
Revelation 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.
There is a monumental famine worldwide. Cereal grains become exceedingly scarce. We can now see the possibility of this just ahead. Monsanto is trying to take possession of all world agriculture with its hybrid and GMO seed options. This forces the farmers who opt into their seeds to stay with them, and they have to buy new seed every year. Heirloom seed, which can be saved from last year's crop for planting this year, is a thing of the past.
Add to this the issue of the Ogalala Aquifer below the grain belt of the US Middle West. This aquifer has no supply into it and is very deep. Farmers are pumping the Ogalala aquifer furiously, using thousands of 12 inch pumps. There is virtually no regulation or restraint. When the Ogalala aquifer goes dry, the whole US Grain Belt will revert to prairie, and Americans will enter a famine era unlike anything they have ever seen. And, it will not reverse. The huge surplus of grain harvested in the US goes to feed hundreds of millions around the world. This will end abruptly, and millions around the world will die of starvation.
And, as if that were not enough sorrow, we are now entering a Maunder Minimum. This is a period of no sun spots which lasts for about 70 years, and it comes around about every 400 years. We are presently 400 years from the last Maunder Minimum. The sun is distinctly in a marked slow down of sun spots, and the ones that do appear are low in intensity. This means the earth mean temperature will drop seriously, and grain crops will not be able to finish to harvest in Europe, Russia, and the USA.
This situation will be no surprise to God, but the gurus of climate change will have to rearrange their calculations very fast. In fact, "Climate Change" will soon be seen as pure Mother Goose as winters get colder and colder, and longer. The winter of 2014/15 has been a world record setter for colder weather and snow fall. This is not an anomaly-- it was predictable by anyone watching sun spot activity.
So, how will this affect food prices? The verse above tells all. A day's wages in Bible times was a penny. Thus, we see that cereal grains will become extremely expensive during the Great Tribulation in the time of God's wrath on humanity. If a day's wages in the US for a middle level job are about $170, you now know what you will pay for about a liter of flour. A loaf of bread in a store could be $60 or more.
But, the angels who deliver this judgment to the earth are told not to harm the oil and wine. This seems to imply that oil will continue to be readily available. I will not try to totally untangle this prophecy except to say, oil will say central to all world commerce and economic activity to the end of the Great Tribulation. Oil may also become the world's trade currency for food. In fact, I will predict that food, water, and oil wars will soon be with us. Big powerful nations, like the USA, will rape and pillage the world for oil to use to trade for food. The US wars in the Middle East since Desert Storm has had NOTHING to do with terrorism and stopping nasty dictators. These wars have everything to do with control of the world's oil.
WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN TO A BIBLE BELIEVER?
In the run up to the Great Tribulation, dear Bible believer, you are a freak, at least you better be. The world, especially the White Race nations, are now eliminating History and the study of Government from all school curricula. They are also using the mad policy that it is cruel to tell a student that he failed a class and must repeat it. All pupils must be passed on and told they are special and ready to conquer the world. When they reach the market place, they are taught a very limited skill set, and you can mention Bangladesh or Tanzania to a technology executive, and he may very well ask, "Is that in Russia?"
We once told a husband and wife, who were very successful in business, that we were moving from our home in the California Desert to Michigan. One of them asked, "Is that a suburb of Los Angeles?" I rest my case.
The truth is, we now have two generations of White Race people, ALL WHITE RACE PEOPLE, who are ignorant of the world beyond their own lusts, and they are quite content to be governed by criminals and pin head officials who are fully as stupid as themselves. And, to be fair, all Black and Brown Race people, who live in White Race dominated nations, are just a crippled mentally as their White Race peers. Stuck-on-stupid has no favorites.
Thus, I am adding a discussion of the world as we now know it socially, morally, intellectually, and spiritually. This is the world you Bible believers live in, and it will only get worse. I am adding this because the mental deformities of modern world populations are preparing them to, without a second thought, give the Satanic Antichrist hugs and kisses.
I was once told my my son Dan that the word "gullible" had been taken out of the dictionary. I roared with laughter and told Dan that that would be impossible. I proceeded to prove him wrong, and he then roared with laughter at me. He had succeeded to cause me to become momentarily gullible and believe he thought he was right. Dan still reminds me that gullible has been taken out of the dictionary. Go try that on your best friend. If you know my son Dan, ask him about those great oranges in Tucson, Arizona. Revenge is sweet, well sort of.
Point? The whole world IS becoming mindlessly gullible, AND, the whole world loves liars. All world governments, and most commercial entities, sell all of their products by using lies in advertising. In fact, most churches in Christendom also thrive by following lying ministers, even in the most conservative Baptist and Fundamentalist Churches. Liars are admired. Jack Hyles of First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana, claimed he lead 300 people a week to faith in Christ. His followers all claimed that was so. I did the math, deleting all the hours for personal things and eating, removing time for study (???), and removing all the time he claimed he spent traveling, and it left him twenty minutes per convert to "win them to Christ." What a blasted liar Jack was, but hundreds of thousands of Christians and their pastors used to wear lapel buttons stating, "100% for Hyles." So much for Jesus Christ, adn so much for truth at the church house.
We are down to two groups of people my friend:
Revelation 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
We are now down to these two groups-- those who love the Truth and believe on the name of Jesus Christ, and those who love and make lies. If it were not for the total commitment of the ungodly to love lies, the Antichrist, the Pope, world national leaders, and criminal merchants would make no progress in their quest to rally the whole world to global and religious unity.
Surrender of Body, Soul, and Spirit
Stupid Button Pushers
Vast numbers of young people have learned little or nothing from their parents. They were dropped in front of a TV to be amused while Mom busied herself, or worse, they were raised in a day care center.
They go off to school, and most likely come home to an empty house. Both Dad and Mom are off working to pay for the toys they have bought on payments. So, the kid sits down in front of the computer and dives into cyberspace.
This kid is now a young adult, and he is unemployed because he has never learned to give an employer respect and his money's worth in real work.
This kid finally "gets religion," and he trundles off to some low end tech job, usually a call center. These are the diddle heads in ten million work cubes in thousands of call centers around the allegedly developed nations. They go to work to play, and they regularly quit and move on before they are fired. They are stupid button pushers. They know little of nothing about any world except cyberspace and cyber games. The computer is their slave, just as the Romans, before the Empire fell, did nothing but play and let the slaves do all the work. The Roman Government imported thousands of slaves to do the work the Roman citizens refused to do.
And, to keep these ditto heads believing they are the glory of their race, politicians like President Obama tell these losers they are wonderful, productive, and the great hope of the future. Then on Sunday, at the mega church, Joel Osteen or Rick Warren tell the same ditto heads that they are the Great I Am. What a trick. They are ready for the final answer man, the Antichrist, to tell them they are gods.
EDUCATION IT IS NOT
So, Junior goes off the school, and what does he study? He learns to brush his teeth, tie his shoes, and not be a bully on the playground. As he progresses upward, grade by grade, he is taught to be politically correct and how to log on to the Internet. Finally, after some perfunctory dabs of history and grammar, he is graduated into the real world. Because of his lousy education, junior spends the years between 18 and 25 being fired over and over, or he sits at home waiting for work to come and slap him up the side of the head while he plays computer games. So, the job he could have had, that is, if he had been taught something in school, is sent overseas to Mumbai, India. And, Junior is the great White hope of the nation who is expected to know how to choose the next President or Prime Minister at the voting booth.
When you brag on the accomplishments of the USA and Europe in space exploration and in high powered commerce, you are not bragging about the loser I just described. You are bragging about kids whose parents had money and made sure Junior got into a school for children predestined to succeed.
I went to tune the piano of an older couple one day in Arizona. These people were quite wealthy, and their home decor was early Ikea. While talking about various things, I noted a small photo mounted and sitting on the mantel. I asked where it was, and the lady told me they took it on their last cruise to Greece. It turned out they went on cruises often, but the thing that startled me was that their home had no gongs and trinkets on the walls or flat surfaces. The lady eventually explained that they didn't even get off the ship when it was in port. The lady actually told me that she got her thrill out of dancing with the captain of the ship on the poop deck.
Draw me a picture, Johnny.
The White Race, and all other ethnic people living in White Race nations, have totally lost their sense of wonder. Technology is what thrills them, along with an occasional party, and a nose full of classy wine, and that is as far as their sense of wonder goes. And, the wine? Gallo from northern California. To hell with the stars at night are big and bright, and smelling the roses. Give us an evening surfing YouTube and watching those cool Russian dash cam movies of car and truck crashes. And, as you can see, I bring this back around to pushing the buttons of technology. The only way any geek today would find himself going for a cruise on the Yellow River in China would be with a Virtual Reality headset.
The whole health caare system of most White Race nations has devolved into pill pushing and the latest greatest vaccination. These are peddled by the pharmaceutical companies by bribing the US Government Health agencies, and by advertising to sucker potential patients until they beg their doctor for the latest drug. Ironically, all vaccinations are laced with mercury, allegedly as a preservative. Right, and embalming fluid is also a great preservative. The mercury seems to be directly related to autism in children, and Alzheimer's in older adults. But, the masses believe the lies, vaccinate their babies, and the kids have no immunity later in life because they never got sick.
Medical schools teach nothing about nutrition and prevention of disease-- they teach doctors to do tests, run the numbers, and prescribe pills. The vast majority of doctors make no effort to help their patients get OFF of drugs or make life style and diet changes. This is because the doctors were taught NOTHING about that option, and if they do know alternatives, they are terrified to mention them because their peers will laugh at them.
Thus, White Race people, and other nationalities living in White Race nations, are ALL sick in mind and/or body in one way or another, and they are hopelessly drugged because they believe the lies of the medical profession. Autism and Alzheimer's, which were unheard of when I was a kid, are rampant and getting worse. Millions of people around the world die annually from the side effects of drugs which are doing nothing to cure or prevent the alleged "disorder" which the medical system clams they have.
And, the peasants believe the lies, take their Statens, and live in severe pain as a side effect. Their cholesterol level is forced down, their liver scavenges more cholesterol from their brain, and they die sitting in a nursing home drooling on themselves and praising their doctor.
Are you on this road to rot in a nursing home, or are you making your way with health by reading a lot and Googling EVERYTHING your doctor tells you?
People complain about the Big Nanny government. The President's wife nags and nags America about what it eats and drinks. Developing nations' leaders nag their people in pious speeches about work ethics, corruption, and productivity while they send their nation's revenues to their private bank account in the Vatican Bank. Thus, people come to hate being tracked and snooped on while on their phone, using email, and even as they drive down the highway.
But, in reality, people love to be found by some online store, or by the local super market, that is, if in being tracked they get a discount on some new toy. People who were raised in the manner of the above topic, Stupid Button Pushers, love to be nannied along to make life easier and convenient.
Some people do not even know their spouse's phone number. They punch it into their contacts, set up a hot button, and punch "2" and Send. These people NEED a nanny, and they welcome every short cut and hot key to ease the pain of thinking for themselves.
Are you living at the mercy of the technological nanny world? If so, you are a lazy slob, and research has proven that your brain power will decrease as you manage your own life less and less and let Apple do it for you.
Forgive me honorable Sahib, for I have just been nannying you.
Did it feel good?
YOU ARE SICK. I am a terrible substitute for listening to the Holy Ghost.
Aside from the vanity in the warped souls of mega church leaders for their monstrous technology systems, there is a whole world of alleged technology used for alleged Christian fellowship. I am talking about Facebook, Email, Skype, Twitter, and dozens of other alleged meeting places online.
For the record, I have a Facebook account. I like the idea of keeping contact with old friends and family who are far away. But, it makes me mad when someone who could drop by for coffee settles for "fellowship" in cyberspace. The whole world culture is becoming impersonal and crude as people opt to keep touch with friends via technology, rather than over coffee at a nearby restaurant. I have even heard of family members, in the same house, texting each other so they didn't have to walk across the house. Bah Humbug-- lazy slobs. They cannot even work up the zeal to yell at each other.
Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
That is how the early Church in the book of Acts had fellowship-- house to house. They did not even write a note and have their kid carry it across town to their brother or sister in Christ. The more you sit alone before this monitor and relate to friends and other web sources, like this journal, the less and less you will know about the people you pretend are your personal friends.
Who do you recall right now who has not heard from you in much too long? Go call him NOW. Make a time to have coffee together. You will not fall off of the earth if you do not finish this article right now. And, if you never finish it, I would be delighted to know you got off of your damned leash to the world system because you read this and fled to the real world of real people.
Hebrews 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
By the way, find a restaurant without a WiFi connection please. Yield not to temptation.
And, if you drive by our place on your way through Texas, and if you do not call to meet us for coffee nearby, whatever you do, do not call and apologize. I will just be mad. OUR PHONE
Keep this in mind-- your computer will be how the Antichrist takes control of the minds of the masses. How much do YOU want to be enslabed to the Internet?
Technology and Buying and Selling
We have already discussed many issues with technology in the market place. Here are a few thoughts on personal ethics and standards we may need to think about due to technology.
I find Amazon seductive. I can find something that is only found in obscure brick and mortar stores, and then only in big cities. Marmite from the UK-- a book on the building of the Uganda Railway in 1894-- Darjeeling tea-- a Mennonite hoe that is the best weed chopper I have ever owned. The problem is, my bank account and Amazon are only two clicks away from each other.
It is so very easy to let technology drive us along, right? Yesterday I realized my automobile annual registration was about to expire. And, my insurance card, which the state wants to see, was not up to date. I called my insurance agent and asked the lady to email me a new proof of insurance card, which she did, and in less than ten minutes I had printed the email and had four copies in my hand. I will not try to tell you this is wicked, for it saved me some serious pain. But, have I become lazy mentally, knowing technology will bail me out in ten minutes? Is it possible that, in 1975, I would have put a note on the calendar and planned ahead for this moment?
And, that cursed cell phone-- I refuse to get an I-pad-- I still have a flip phone. But, when the battery goes dead I have no way to call home. There are no pay phone booths anywhere in the world today. Even some beggar in Kibera slum outside of Nairobi, Kenya may have a cell phone. But, are we too connected. Are we on a leash to the New World Order and preparing ourselves for the Mark of the Beast? Will the day come when we do not need the cell phone because we can get an implant that will interface with our mind and let us talk to anyone on earth by an act of the will. Indeed, do we still have a will, or are we owned by the goddess "Progress?"
Acts 17:21 For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.
So, the modern Greeks thought they had found a lovely "new thing" in the World Bank and the EU loans they solicited over the years. And, those Athenians are now begging for mercy.
What new thing are YOU craving..... a new thing which has serious consequences for your priorities in life, and for you family?
What about all those creative posters on Facebook. Do-gooders love to make these and pop them on you as if you just heard from God himself. Signs should be for the highway to advertise the next hamburger joint.
Have you ever considered that there is not one graphic in the Bible, at least not one that is inspired of God. God paints pretty pictures all right. Just take a walk in the woods, or go watch the sun set over the ocean.
And, God gives us signs. They were given by Jesus during his ministry on earth, and you can see his signs in your mind if you read them in the Bible and visualize them in your imagination.
So, beware of the signs of Satan on the Internet and in modern life. They are devilish slop, parading under the guise of wisdom, for pin heads with too much time on their hands. By the way, what is the point of the above poster? It is banal rubbish.
Beyond that, beware of all online teaching. I hear people quoting Internet preachers and prophecy teachers as if they are inspired of God. Only the Word of God, in a book called The Bible, is inspired. Check everything you see online against the Word of God, and that includes everything you read on this journal. Don't write and tell me you agree with me. That could easily mean both of us are loonie as a March Hare.
Be a noble Berean:
Acts 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
The Will of Man
Contrary to what John Calvin told his benighted followers, YOU HAVE A WILL. I do not know how Calvinists make up their mind when they are handed a menu in a restaurant, what with God deciding all of their choices in eternity past. God certainly is in charge, and that goes back into eternity, but he created you TO MAKE CHOICES. God actually may receive pleasure from watching his children decide which flavor of ice cream they want. Likewise, it is up to you how much you inhale the propaganda telling you to dive in deeper into technology and the "glorious New Age."
I believe that a very good policy is to ask a question. "Why do I think I need this new toy?" "Will this be a real help and make a difference is my life, or am I just lusting for more stuff?" "Is there something evil here?" Make up your own question, but if you do not have the discipline to ask YOURSELF some serious skeptical questions in these Last Days, you will soon be running along with the masses and asses swooning with delight at the words of the Pope. Like Esau long ago, you will sell your birthright for a mess of pottage. By that I mean, you will give away your individuality and right of choice to the world system in order to get in on all the technological blessings.
Philippians 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
What would you do without if you knew it would please Jesus? Do you need to talk about this with your family?
The Will of God
John Calvin exacerbates the modern dullness of Reformed Theology by giving his followers the option of coasting regarding any subject they do not want to think about. Their excuse for being dull and uncertain about some doctrine is that God, in his foreknowledge, did not want them to understand it.
Witness please the FACT that 90% of all Reformed heritage Christians have no eschatology, no zeal for the prophetic areas of Scripture. Some are Preterists and claim all the prophecies in the Old Testament have already been fulfilled. This helps Lutherans who tell us that Israel is gone forever, that is, God has no plans for a future Israel. This was the theme of Luther, then 400 years later for Kittel, and Adolph Hitler used Kittel as his proof that the Jews were hated by God and needed to be eliminated. Stupid has consequences.
Thus, those Christians who lean on the broken reed John Calvin are also dumb as snot when some area of Christian doctrine is brought up which Calvin and Luther hated. How very useful to Satan and his coming Antichrist. Since these Reformed fluff heads have no future hope, no Messianic Kingdom, and no peace on earth good will toward man, they will see the Antichrist as merely a novel world leader doing good and botching it. They will take the Mark of the Beast, and they will simply NOT believe it is associated with anything evil.
If you are in a Reformed Movement church, get out, and find yourself a Bible teacher who uses the whole Bible. You may have never been truly born again. If you cannot recall a time in your life where you confessed your faith in Jesus Christ AS AN ACT OF YOUR WILL, you are damned to hell in a hand basket. And, I am not talking about the great Reformed Bar Mitzvah called Confirmation where you answer yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, to a batch of questions asked by your resident guru.
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
If you cannot eagerly talk about Jesus and his salvation to people you meet who are lost and going to hell, you are not born again. Jesus is now denying you before God, and your baptism, catechism, and confirmation by men..... be damned.
CHOOSE YOU THIS DAY, WHOM YOU WILL SERVE
"I am beautiful, I am successful, I am Joel Osteen." And, the crowd of ten thousand groupies roars approval. The rock band roars, the alleged worship leader, either a sex pot fluffy dolly, or a hunk who should be in Saturday night wrestling, breaks forth in song.
The song is too complicated to be sung, but the words flash on the monster screen, and the masses and asses try to sing along. No one cares, but that chick is sure cool. And, the drummer is hot this morning. What a show. What a blessing.
Blessing? Bah. You are a fool if you think that is worship.
Mob rule and the Mega Church
"Mob rule" is just another name for Laodicea.
More and more local churches, especially mega churches, are being driven by the mob. Joel Osteen claims to believe the whole Bible, but after he tells us the God says sodomy is a grievous sin, he then says, "But, we are all about loving people. Gays are welcome on our church." What a wimp. Osteen is terrified of being perceived as going against the mob's standards. So, he lets God keep the Bible and be the fall guy for the wicked to attack, while Osteen slaps God's face and loads the pews with filthy agents for Satan. And, the sodomites wave their arms in the air and scream for Jesus, though I don't know who this Jesus really is.
Smaller local churches are often ruled from the pew also. Men with deep pockets load the offering plate until the church and pastor are heavily beholding to these men for the church budget. Then, after the pastor preaches on divorce as Jesus and Paul taught on it, the rich man stops giving. He is divorced and needs to hear that his sin is OK with God. Once the preacher changes his position on divorce and invites the rich man onto the church board as treasurer, alas, the budget heals itself at once. Mob rule!
This is the way with the whole world at large today. The Laodiceans are hammering the Nicolaitans at the top, and the Nicolaitans adjust the rules and guidelines of the New World Order to placate the Laodiceans' lusts.
The first line of defense against this disease creeping into Christian homes and churches are the fathers of God fearing families. Next, are the pastors who rightly divide the Word of Truth. As the End Times wind down, and as the world rages deeper and deeper into this class warfare, churches will be tempted to follow the lead of the Laodiceans and mix patriotism and "our rights" with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."
Pastor, are you regularly wailing against violations of the US Constitution from your pulpit? Are you raging against Liberal political leaders as they exalt sodomy? Or, are you teaching, book by book, the plain Word of God? Of course, you Fundamental Baptists and Pentecostals never were taught to do book studies, and I have even heard some of you say that Bible Book studies are a bad idea. That is because you are too blasted lazy to study the Bible yourself, sir. So, your people are no deeper than your flag waving, war mongering, and beast bashing.
Who rules you home and local church, Jesus Christ the Head of the Church, or the persuasions of your leading men? Worse, I know of churches that are driven by some aging witch who has the power to destroy pastors and whole churches if they do not do her will. We have one nearby here in the Hill Country of Texas.
So, Laodicea, which was long ago an historical local church, is now a world system. It is becoming obvious that Laodicea is the format for world social and political order in our last days of the Church Age. But, do not think that Laodicea cannot enter your church or home. You will have to fight this off 24/7 if you wish to have Christ at the center of your home and church life.
2 Timothy 4:1 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;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 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;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
The "THEY" in verse 3 are people in the local church. Paul's letter is to Christians, and he is predicting that, one day down the road, people IN CHURCH will not endure sound doctrine. This is that day. They will turn to Laodicean and New World Order fables IN CHURCH.
Technology Frenzy at the Church House
Did you ever have to endure some soloist in a local church who sings to canned music on a boom box? It is no better if the sound room of a big church plays a CD as accompaniment. Serving Christ in song is not a Karaoke session my friend. We had this done once in a church I pastored, and everyone was unimpressed. The sound of the back up was way more impressive than the soloist. It would have been a lot better received if the lady had sung acapella
The platform of your local church is not a performance area. The ONLY reason for a platform is so that the people can see the Bible teacher better. Long ago, choirs were in a loft up behind the congregation where they were heard and not seen. We now have a virtual circus of activity, glittering brass, drums, and sound equipment all over the place. The teaching of the Bible is clearly in lower priority than the flash and crash of the "Praise and Worship Service."
I would suggest, pastor, that you take one Sunday, maybe four times a year, and sing acapella Let the people choose ALL the hymns. For Praise, ask people to speak in praise of God, not mentioning even what he did for them last week. Keep it to only exalting God for WHO HE IS. This will be confusing to your people at first. We have all fallen into the notion that a testimony is all about what God did for me. Why have we stopped exalting God for who he is?
So, get off of the platform for one Sunday, walk the aisles, and ask the people of God to praise his Holy Name, AND NOTHING ELSE. If this terrifies you, preacher, you may not even be born again yourself. Are you the center of all activity in the local church, or is Jesus Christ exalted? If Christ is the Head of your local church, and if you are born again, why are you not spending whole Sundays exalting him? The end of such a Sunday might well be to have the Lord's Supper.
In other words, if you cannot BE the Church without a microphone, you are NOT the Lord's church. You are the First Baptist Church of Sony or Fender. And, if you cannot turn off the audio system, you are too big. The mega church is NOT normal my friend. There was no mega church in early Church history until the Whore of Rome, and state religion, were invented. I have no solution for you who have started with a mustard seed and built yourself into the greatest tree in the field. That is a freak, Jesus predicted it in the Gospels, and you are stuck with your freak.
Luke 13:18 Then said he, Unto what is the kingdom of God like? and whereunto shall I resemble it?
19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.
Alone with God-- the Laodiceans of today are terrified of being alone. That is why portable music is an addiction in modern society, and background music is imperative, even in some elevators. So. It is no wonder that Christians who have been seriously affected by the modern mind set believe worship has to be done in a mob.
This life of ours will never be all that it should be unless we are much alone with God. Only those who are oft alone with him know the benefit that is derived therefrom. You can not be like God unless you are much with him, and you can not live like him unless you are like him. The Scriptures tell us that Jesus departed into the mountain to be alone with the Father and that he was often "alone praying."
When Jesus had anything of great importance to say to his disciples, he always took them aside from the multitude. When he was transfigured, he took three of his disciples into a mountain apart from all the world. When he was one time alone praying with his disciples, he asked them who he was. Peter answered, "The Christ of God". It was only when he was alone with them and after prayer that he could bring them into such nearness to him that they might know in their hearts that he was the Son of God. When amid the active duties of life and when in contact with the world, we can scarcely come into that sacred nearness to God that will enable us to feel in our hearts all that God is.
We may get slight glimpses of his glory, we may occasionally get a dim view of some of his beauty, we may feel a little warming of his love in our bosoms; but only when alone with him are we awed into wonder at the sight of his glory and great beauty. It is only then that we see him in his purity and feel the warm sunshine of his love. It is only then that our hearts can be deeply impressed with the knowledge that he is God, and in childlikeness we can look up to him and call him Father.
Charles Ebert Orr
Where is this place-- Alone with God? It is in his Word, and in his creation. The heavens declare the Glory of God," said David. If you will not get alone with God, he will merely be a stranger to you when you meet him in heaven.
Coming to Jesus is not one event at some preacher's altar call, long ago, and then off down the road of life and play play play. Coming to Jesus means walking into his arms of love daily, hourly, forever. What is it in this mongrel age of rebels and slaves of technology that is keeping you from walking up to Jesus and giving him a big hug?
You, the World System (Satan), or God?
You are a Bible believer, right? Well, you must make a choice NOW. Will you follow the button pushers and the YouTube junkies into la la land, or will you be one of those peculiar people?
1 Peter 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
More than any time in the Church Age, any true Bible believer must be willing to be considered very odd and different. The world wants you to travel the same path they do:
1 Peter 4:3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
So, would you chase along after the Antichrist, take the Mark of the Beast, and load up a Vatican Bank account if God did not remove you in the Rapture of the Lord's Church. You may actually be insulted that I should ask that question, right? So, when IS the last time you stopped to smell the roses or look up at the stars? Are you an online slave of thrills and chills? Do you dive, over and over, into the sewer of online filth and lust simply because it is there and free?
Tell me, would you rather be reading this article than sitting in a café drinking coffee with another Bible believer? Hmmmm You do not know me, may never see me this side of heaven, and you passed up fellowship with a real live Bible believer to sit here and read?
Well, Bunky, The article did not end by giving you the warn fuzzies I suspect.
Ask yourself this question: How much has the Beast system and the love of money taken hold of my soul and mind? Do you have a little Beast in your soul? Go for a walk now, and take inventory please.
Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
This has certainly been a fascinating study. I have never done anything quite like this one. It is now very clear that WW III is really the top against the bottom. And, according to the book of the Revelation, the bottom dominates and overpowers the top..... until Antichrist appears and charms both the top and the bottom and makes them think they are happy giving up their lives and choices to Satan.
As I write, Pope Francis is blasting away at Capitalism and the rich of the world. He is shaming them. Meanwhile, his Vatican Bank is being loaded up to bursting with deposits from those very world leaders, billionaires, drug lords, and all manner of evil doers whom the scurvy Pope attacks in his speeches. He is appealing to the Laodiceans by calling for the humbling of the Nicolaitans, as the Nicolaitans cover the Pope in gold. This is a classic Satanic method. Play both sides against the middle and conquer. So, to say that the Pope is the coming Antichrist is not a stretch by any means. But, he also could be the false prophet who introduces the Antichrist to the world.
The lesson for a Bible believer is rather urgent. If you are born again, you will not be experiencing most of what you read about above. You will be taken out when Jesus Christ comes back to remove his Church and initiate the Great Tribulation. But, the system of monetary and political control of the masses is the top priority of your government leaders, no matter where you live in the world. And, this process is under way NOW, what with the Internet to connect every soul on earth with either the top or the bottom, the Nicolaitans or the Laodiceans. And, the frantic urge by the rulers to number and follow every soul in real time is clearly a harbinger of things to come during the Satanic kingdom, when the Mark of Antichrist is universally forced upon humanity.
Also, we have seen the marriage made in Hell between technology and the Satanic world system. And, it will only increase its seduction on our minds and souls with promises of more exciting technological toys to come.
Thus, the Bible believer needs to step back and take a long look at how money and finance is influencing his life. I suggest you ask yourself a question:
"How have I developed a standard for me, my family, and my local church which is infected with the propaganda of big bankers, Atheist economic gurus, and the lies of political rulers?"
"Am I being mentally massaged into the mass mind of rebellion by the Laodiceans?" If you are feasting on Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck, among many other agents provocateur of Satan, you are rapidly becoming a Laodicean rebel.
To whatever degree your thinking is infected by these people, that is the degree to which you are inhaling the incense of Antichrist, even before he arrives. I would encourage you to sit down with your family and talk about this. What ways can you use the Bible to rearrange your priorities with regard to the world around you? Are you behaving like Jesus would if he walked every day in your steps? Even a third grader can think these thoughts, so why not you, Daddy?
Whatever you have left to do for Jesus Christ, don't put it off my friend. Time is short.
Finally, can you even win against the forces of evil in these Last Days?
Romans 8:36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
You are not alone, Bible believer. If anything, our Lord Jesus Christ, seeing that the Father must be close to sending him to remove his Church to heaven, will be very interested in seeing you more than survive. He wants you to thrive in his love and power.
You are not alone.
Jude 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
THIS IS HOW THE LAODICEANS ATTACK THE NICOLAITANS
THIS IS HOW THE NICOLAITANS ATTACK THE LAODICEANS
HERE IS THE HERESY OF THE SEVENTH DAY ADVENTISTS
The SDA doctrine claims that Sunday worship is the Mark of the Beast. They claim it was instituted by the Roman Catholic Church. Thus, they confound the whole biblical teaching of the mark being for buying and selling, which was made clear above in this study. The reason the SDAs cling to this heresy is because they hold Ellen G White in higher regard than they do the Bible. For this reason, they will all go to hell if they do not dump Ellen G White as a revelator. Revelation 22:18-19 makes is VERY clear that adding revelation is damning.
The fact is, Jesus rose from the grave on Saturday evening, but he did not reveal himself to his disciples and friends until the next day-- Sunday-- the first day of the week. That was the day of creation when God said, "let there be light," and Jesus is the Light of the world.
For this reason, the early church called Sunday "The Lord's Day" in many places in the Bible, and they met on that day to worship and fellowship. And, the last revelation given, the book of The Revelation, the end and close of the Bible, was given on the Lord's day to the Apostle John. Read the book of The Revelation, Chapter One, verses 1-10 for yourself.
It is very hard to find videos online which are sound in doctrine regarding the discussions in this study we have been looking at. As the end of this age comes near, there will be fewer and fewer Bible teachers who stay only with the literal use of the King James Bible. We must beware of sensationalism and teachers who want a patent on some Bible teaching.
