Schools Across England Removing All Calendar References To Jesus Christ By Switching To CE And BCE • Now The End Begins

The traditional terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, are being ditched for BCE – Before Common Era, and CE – Common Era. The new terms still denote the periods before and after the birth of Christ. Local authority committees drawing up religious education syllabuses say the old terms may upset minorities or non-believers. But critics blasted the move as a ‘capitulation to political correctness’.

Schools across the country have stopped using the terms BC and AD in religious education lessons for fear of offending non-Christians.

“And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19:16 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: For hundreds of years, the world has used a calendar where each and every year is a direct reference to Jesus of Nazareth. Now in the country from whence the King James Bible first came into being, those references – AD and BC – are being removed from all calendars in the school systems. It is being replaced with CE for ‘common era’ and BCE ‘before the common era’ so favored by atheists, agnostics and Jehovah’s Witnesses. As we get closer to the Rapture of the Church, the world being left behind is preparing to meet Antichrist.

The traditional terms BC, Before Christ, and AD, Anno Domini, are being ditched for BCE – Before Common Era, and CE – Common Era. The new terms still denote the periods before and after the birth of Christ.

Local authority committees drawing up religious education syllabuses say the old terms may upset minorities or non-believers. But critics blasted the move as a ‘capitulation to political correctness’.

Former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey said the rulings by the religious education committees were a ‘great shame’.

Muslim and Jewish leaders were also mystified, saying they were not offended by the familiar terms.

Local authority committees – known as Standing Advisory Councils for Religious Education (SACREs) – from Brighton and Essex are among a growing number urging heads to ditch BC and AD.

The syllabus for schools in East Sussex, for example, reads: ‘BCE and CE are now used in order to show sensitivity to those who are not Christians.’

Lord Carey said: ‘I have never met a Muslim or Jewish leader who is offended by the Gregorian calendar’ while leading Imam Ibrahim Mogra said: ‘I don’t believe it causes Muslims offence.’ A spokesman for the Board of Deputies of British Jews said: ‘I don’t think anyone would mind if in mainstream schools they use BC and AD.’

Chris McGovern, the chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, said: removing BC and AD ‘is a capitulation to political correctness’.

National Association of Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education chair Paul Smalley said: ‘Individual SACREs and schools can make a judgment over which form of dating is appropriate.’ source

Christians Targeted As Faith-Based Movies Like ‘Generational Sins’ Now Include Foul Language, Explicit Sex And Drug Use • Now The End Begins

Movieguide, which recommends films based on their Christian messaging, wrote that movies “don’t need to be filled with foul language, explicit sex, drug use and the like to reach out to people that aren’t walking with God.” Movieguide also accuses Folmar of marketing his movie based on the unusually large number of cuss words it contains.
hard-faith-christian-movies-generational-sins-hollywood-warning-nteb

“We don’t want to play within the constraints” of Christian movie-making, says ‘Generational Sins’ writer-director Spencer Folmar.

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: My family and I have enjoyed excellent Christian movie-making over the years with great movies like Facing The Giants, Flywheel, War Room, God’s Not Dead and a whole host of others. They’re exciting, great acting, with a powerful and relative message from the Bible, and best of all, 100% family friendly. These films combined have made hundreds of millions at the box office and online, and now the Devil’s counterfeit wants in on the action. Here’s how it works. Air quotes “christian” movie-makers want to show you the “real struggle” in the Christian life, so their movies contain scenes of backslidden Christians getting drunk, cursing, fornicating, fighting and all the rest. The net result being you exposed on the screen to the same junk that comes from Hollywood. There is no God in a movie like that, don’t kid yourself that there is. Stay away from the theater of Laodicea, it’s a trap. Hope this timely warning is a blessing to you and your family. 

Are Christian movies going blue? ‘Generational Sins’, in theaters Oct.  6 via Freestyle Digital Media, is rated PG-13 and contains 32 profanities — not unusual except that Sins is a faith-based movie.

Call them “Hard Faith” films, says writer-director Spencer Folmar, who is trademarking the phrase and whose banner, Third Brother Films, has more such movies in the works, including one based on Johnny Cash’s The Beast in Me.

The faith-based Dove Foundation, which stamps its seal of approval on family-friendly movies, recently named Sins its first recommendation in its new category for viewers ages 18 and up. The movie, says Dove president Suzy Sammons, “has not only cautionary elements in it, but positive ones. There’s an overt godly message with Christian values.”

Dove has reviewed 12,000 movies since its founding in 1991, and about 750,000 people use the nonprofit organization’s recommendations, says Sammons, who notes that films like Passion of the Christ and Hacksaw Ridge are examples of films that might also warrant Dove’s new 18-plus recommendation.

“We’re not only targeting faith-based moviegoers,” says Folmar, “we’re also going after ‘Chreasters’ — people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter. If we tell stories of adults struggling with faith, adults will run toward them, so we’re working hard on creating this new genre.”

But some critics are crying foul. Movieguide, which recommends films based on their Christian messaging, wrote that movies “don’t need to be filled with foul language, explicit sex, drug use and the like to reach out to people that aren’t walking with God.” Movieguide also accuses Folmar of marketing his movie based on the unusually large number of cuss words it contains.

Recent hits in the genre, like the God’s Not Dead franchise, which has grossed more than $80  million in the U.S., have been PG rated, with no swearing in them. Folmar, though, embraces the controversy.

“There’s been a backlash to Generational Sins, but there are secular and faith-based films, and we believe there should be a third option,” he says. “We don’t want to play within the constraints of the traditional faith-based community.” source

Pope Francis Recalls Pedophile Priest After U.S. Justice Department Moved To Charge With Child Pornography • Now The End Begins

The Vatican declined to identify the priest, but said he was currently in Vatican City and that Vatican prosecutors had launched their own probe. If the accusations pan out, the case would be a major embarrassment for the Vatican and Pope Francis, who has pledged “zero tolerance” for sexual abuse. The diplomat would be the second from the Vatican’s diplomatic corps to face possible criminal charges for such crimes during Francis’ papacy. Any trial in the Vatican would come as Francis’ own financial czar, Cardinal George Pell, is on trial in his native Australia for alleged historic sex abuse cases.

A high-ranking priest working in the Vatican’s embassy in Washington has been recalled after U.S. prosecutors asked for him to be charged there and face trial in a child pornography investigation, Vatican and U.S. officials said Friday.

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

EDITOR’S NOTE: Pope Francis vowed a “zero tolerance” policy to deal with the myriad pedophile Catholic priests accused of child molestation around the globe, with a special focus in America. So when the United States prosecutors identified a pedophile priest in the Vatican’s embassy in Washington, what does Francis do? He immediately recalls the accused man back to Rome and claims diplomatic immunity. In other words, far from exercising his much-touted “zero tolerance” policy, Pope Francis appears to be shielding him from the law. 

The Vatican declined to identify the priest, but said he was currently in Vatican City and that Vatican prosecutors had launched their own probe.

If the accusations pan out, the case would be a major embarrassment for the Vatican and Pope Francis, who has pledged “zero tolerance” for sexual abuse. The diplomat would be the second from the Vatican’s diplomatic corps to face possible criminal charges for such crimes during Francis’ papacy. Any trial in the Vatican would come as Francis’ own financial czar, Cardinal George Pell, is on trial in his native Australia for alleged historic sex abuse cases.

The State Department said it had asked the Vatican to lift the official’s diplomatic immunity on Aug. 21. It said that request was denied three days later. For the State Department to make such a request, its lawyers would have needed to be convinced that there was reasonable cause for criminal prosecution.

The circumstances that prompted prosecutors to make the request, however, weren’t clear. The Justice Department, which would have brought any charges, did not immediately comment.

In a statement, the Vatican said the U.S. State Department had notified the Vatican on Aug. 21 of a “possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images” by one of its diplomats in Washington.

The Vatican said recalling the priest was consistent with diplomatic practice of sovereign states. In declining to identify him, the Vatican said the case was subject to confidentiality while still under investigation. It said the Vatican had asked for information about the case from the U.S; it wasn’t clear if any had been provided.

The Vatican has recalled envoys before — including its former ambassador to the Dominican Republic, who was recalled in 2013 after being accused of sexually abusing young boys on the Caribbean island. source

Mega-Rich Pastor Joel Osteen Orders Doors Of Lakewood Church Shut To Public At Height Of Hurricane Harvey • Now The End Begins

 

Televangelist Joel Osteen canceled services at his Houston megachurch Sunday and just reopened his doors today — despite the fact that thousands of flooded-out residents were desperately seeking shelter. The perpetually smiling pastor told followers on Twitter on Monday to lean on their faith.  “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding,” he wrote. “That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”

Televangelist Joel Osteen canceled services at his Houston megachurch Sunday and just reopened his doors today — despite the fact that thousands of flooded-out residents were desperately seeking shelter.

“And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” 2 Peter 2:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: With all the tens of millions of dollars his followers give Lakewood Church every year, and because of it’s massive sports stadium size, it would be only natural to think that Joel Osteen would order his huge building to be a receiving zone for the many thousands of displaced people in Hurricane Harvey. Lakewood Church has 16,000 seats in it’s main arena. So why did Osteen order the doors to his millionaires monastery shut to the public? That’s what I would like to know. After a public outcry, he begrudgedly opened the church to the public late today. But please, don’t stop sending in your money to fund his lavish lifestyle, he counts on suckers like you to pay his bills.

The perpetually smiling pastor told followers on Twitter on Monday to lean on their faith.  “Jesus promises us peace that passes understanding,” he wrote. “That’s peace when it doesn’t make sense.”

But Osteen’s comforting words didn’t sit well with critics, who want to know why the doors to his 16,800-seat arena at his Lakewood Church near downtown Houston are closed.

Joel Osteen opens Mega-church to flood victims amid criticism

“You have taken so much money away from your people to live like a king,” entertainment publicist Danny Deraney blasted. “It’s the least you could do.”

Washington, DC-based writer Charles Clymer tweeted pictures of Lakewood Church, which did not appear to be damaged by floods.

“It doesn’t make sense why you’re not opening up your mega church to house Houston citizens, help me understand that. Jesus,” according to Florida-based writer Emily Timbol.

While the church and its arena have not suffered any flood damage yet, ministry spokesman Donald Iloff said their property is inaccessible because of surrounding waters.

And it makes no sense to open church doors when the city and county are already treating thousands of flood victims at the nearby George R. Brown Convention Center, according to Iloff.

“It has everything inside there — medicine, doctors, places to sleep,” Iloff said of the convention center. “It’s amazing what they’re doing there to make people comfortable.” source

World’s Largest Pagan Festival, ‘Burning Man’, Set To Start This Sunday In The Black Rock Desert In Nevada • Now The End Begins

The event’s website says: ‘Burning Man is permeated with rituals. These rites speak of soulful need; the desire to belong to a place, to belong to a time, to belong to one another, and to belong to something that is greater than ourselves, even in the midst of impermanence.  ‘Throughout all ages temples have been built in order to induce these feelings.’  The festival is erecting a temple commemorating the Golden Spike and participants are invited to visit the shrine and make offerings that embody what Burning Man’s culture means to them.
burning-man-2017-nteb-pagan-festival

Organizers of the iconic Burning Man festival have begun setting up shop with massive art installations as they prepare for tens of thousands to descend upon the Nevada desert.

“And ye shall overthrow their altars, and break their pillars, and burn their groves with fire; and ye shall hew down the graven images of their gods, and destroy the names of them out of that place. Ye shall not do so unto the LORD your God.” Deuteronomy 12:3,4 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Every year, in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, the world’s largest pagan religious festival known as ‘Burning Man’ is held for a week. What can you expect to find at Burning Man? You will find everything from hippies rolling in the dirt all the way up to elite tech billionaires like Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk living like kings on safari in ancient India. It is a religious festival for people who see themselves as their own god, or see no God at all. It is biblically ironic that the main theme of the fest is a, enormous wooden statue of a man burning in flames, and the people cheer wildly as the smoke of his torment ascends up forever and ever. Hmm, now where have I read that before? I think the Bible refers to them as ‘burners’, too.

Before hordes flock to the makeshift city from Sunday until September 4, Black Rock Desert has to be transformed into a ‘metropolis dedicated to community, art, self-expression and self-reliance’. Every August the barren landscape shifts to a world of art, and preparation is already underway as photos reveal large structures being constructed.

A towering temple and ‘The Man’ were seen half completed, as the works are expected to be focal points of this year’s festival theme of Radical Ritual.

According to the event’s website, dozens of art installations are expected to be constructed before the end of the weekend, some made from wire, others as patterns on the ground and some as immersive experiences.

Burning Man: The Documentary

The arts festival begins every year in late August and ends the first week of September, luring around 65,000 to 70,000 so-called ‘Burners’ from around the world to gather in the desert for a week.

Since money is practically outlawed on the site, guests are urged to barter for commodities and in the past fans have taken to social media to swap items such as crystals for festival tickets.

Every year, several ‘temples’ are built according to a theme and on the last day, they are burned down in a ritualistic ceremony. The Radical Ritual theme this year is to honor rituals that humankind has made, including the festival.

The event’s website says: ‘Burning Man is permeated with rituals. These rites speak of soulful need; the desire to belong to a place, to belong to a time, to belong to one another, and to belong to something that is greater than ourselves, even in the midst of impermanence.

‘Throughout all ages temples have been built in order to induce these feelings.’

The festival is erecting a temple commemorating the Golden Spike and participants are invited to visit the shrine and make offerings that embody what Burning Man’s culture means to them. The festival, which began in 1986 as a bonfire, takes place in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert.

The remote week-long rave – often described as ‘where Mad Max meets Woodstock’ – culminates each year with many of the statement artworks going up in flames, in a symbol of catharsis, reflection and new beginnings.

The premise of the Burning Man festival is that almost everything is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.

Thirty years after its first incarnation, the event is populous with tens of thousands of people attending the dried up lake where the event is held which becomes Black Rock City.

However, the festival risked relocation this year due to a pool of standing water, prompting officials in June to warn there was a possibility that the event could be moved from its location two hours north of Reno in Gerlach.

The desert basin is transformed into mud every year by the run-off of melting snow, but this past season’s high precipitation formed the lake, causing fears that the playa would be muddy and impossible to drive across.

Crowds as large as 70,000 people have descended upon the desert for the festival in previous years. It even attracts celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Katy Perry, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Katy Perry, Shanina Shaik and Heidi Klum, among dozens of other high-profile names.

Ironically for a festival that markets itself as anti-capitalist, Burning Man it is now patronised by some of the world’s wealthiest individuals. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos and Google mastermind Sergey Brin have all attended the desert shenanigans in the past.

Some, like Zuckerberg, can even retreat to their own company’s dedicated camp within the site.

THE TEN PRINCIPLES OF BURNING MAN

The Bible shows us God’s Ten Commandments, so naturally in a pagan festival, you must have man-centered commandments. The ‘burners’ might be surprised to learn that the God of the Bible cares very little about climate change or planetary harmony, but cares very much about your relationship to His Son, Jesus Christ. 

“But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear to turn from their wickedness, to burn no incense unto other gods.” Jeremiah 44:5 (KJV)

  1. Radical Inclusion: Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
  2. Gifting: Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
  3. Decommodification: In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
  4. Radical Self-reliance: Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
  5. Radical Self-expression: Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.
  6. Communal Effort: Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
  7. Civic Responsibility: We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
  8. Leaving No Trace: Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
  9. Participation: Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
  10. Immediacy: Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience. source

The 21st Century Christian Church Corporation Has Forgotten What Real Church Is Supposed To Be All About • Now The End Begins

The Apostle Paul would not recognize today’s 501 (c) (3) Laodicean church corporation  Pick a denomination, any denomination. Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Lutheran, Methodist, pick one it doesn’t matter. Doctrine aside, what is the one thing they all have in common? They are all registered with the government as 501 (c) (3) corporations who get out of paying taxing because they are a “ministry”. Is dodging taxes, even unfair taxes, something the Bible would agree or disagree with? Let’s take a look and see.
21st-century-501-c3-church-corporation-laodicea-nteb-now-end-begins

Are you thinking of “getting into the ministry”? Keep your day job if you want to follow Paul.

“Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus: Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles. Likewise greet the church that is in their house. Salute my wellbeloved Epaenetus, who is the firstfruits of Achaia unto Christ.” Romans 16:3-5 (KJV)

This article is going to make a lot of people, church people, hopping mad so let’s get right into it, shall we? The word “church” appears in the King James Bible exactly 77 times in 76 verses. And when I read over those passages giving us God’s perspective on what church is, and look around me at 21st century churches, I see a whopping disconnect taking place.

For starters, church is not primarily a place, the church is made up of people who have become born again. The people are the church, the church is not the church. Get it? You may need to pause a moment to allow that thought to fully sink in before continuing reading further. Suffice to say, the church is the people, as seen here:

“That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:27 (KJV)

Second, the church is also a gathering, be it large or small, of born again, saved church people. Many passages in the Bible refer to “the church” meaning a gathering of church people. Paul often refers to the gathered church as a corporate body. Just don’t make the mistake of confusing something that is “corporate” with something that is a legal corporation, they are not the same thing.

“If therefore the whole church be come together into one place, and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?” 1 Corinthians 14:23 (KJV)

Paula White Goes ‘Easter Pimpin’ For Your Generous Gift Of A Thousand Dollars Or More:

This is what it looks like when modern-day “pastors” prostitute themselves for money.

Lastly, no where is the New Testament do we see an official church building as a separate entity. When the apostles started churches, they went from “house to house” and from “town to town”, starting churches in the home of other like-minded, born again, saved believers in Jesus Christ. Having official buildings for churches would not happen until the hostile takeover of the Church of Jesus Christ by Rome. When this happened, all manner of corruption, greed, avarice and power struggles took place. Rome, by force, merged paganism with Christianity which resulted in the hybrid demon child known as the Roman Catholic Church. Schools used to teach the period of time when the Roman Catholic church ruled as the Dark Ages, and the period of time when the Christian church broke free from Rome’s grip as The Enlightenment. How appropo.

And this brings us to the “meat of the message”, church corporations.

The Apostle Paul would not recognize today’s 501 (c) (3) Laodicean church corporation

Pick a denomination, any denomination. Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Lutheran, Methodist, pick one it doesn’t matter. Doctrine aside, what is the one thing they all have in common? They are all registered with the government as 501 (c) (3) corporations who get out of paying taxing because they are a “ministry”. Is dodging taxes, even unfair taxes, something the Bible would agree or disagree with? Let’s take a look and see:

“And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.” Matthew 17:24-27 (KJV)

Jesus instructed Peter to pay the tax to the Roman government to avoid “all appearance of evil” so as to not offend people they would be witnessing to. What an extraordinary concept, and something not found in any professing New Testament church in the 21st century. Why not? Keep reading.

Kenneth Copeland And Jesse Duplantis Defending Their Private Luxury Jets:

What does Laodicea in full bloom look like? It looks exactly like this.

What comes right along with the modern 501 (c) (3) church corporation? Church corporation salaries that need to be payed every week. How can you be sure you have enough money to pay those salaries? Easy! You go back to the book of Malachi and slap the Old Testament Jewish tithe on your decidedly non-Jewish congregation, and you preach on that thing as often as more money is needed. I have personally witnessed this unscriptural phenomena in everything from bible believing Baptist churches all the way up the line to the mega-church, and everywhere in between. Some do it overtly while others do it more subtly, but nearly all of them do it.

Since Christians are commanded to follow the example of the apostle Paul, (1 Cor 4:16, 1 Cor 11:1 and Phl 3:17) let’s take a look as see how Pastor Paul provided his wages:

“And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. I have coveted no man’s silver, or gold, or apparel. Yea, ye yourselves know, that these hands have ministered unto my necessities, and to them that were with me.” Acts 20:32-34 (KJV)

“After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.” Acts 18:1-4 (KJV)

See? I told you this article was going to make you mad.

According to the Bible, the greatest Christian that ever lived, Pastor Paul, provided the bulk of his needs and necessities by working with his own hands, and then preaching on the weekends. Again, pause here, and allow this to really sink into your brain. This is how God intended for the church to be run and operated, not as a business with salaried employees.

This is why there is no command to Church Age Christians to give a set amount like 10% or any other percent. The Bible says that the Lord loves a “cheerful giver”, who gives as they feel led to, not because they have to. Paul received gifts and love offerings, but he didn’t depend on them, he didn’t live his life waiting to receive them. There was never supposed to be a “church corporation” being run out of a “church building”, that is pure Laodicean hogwash.

Speaking of Laodicea, Jesus prophesies that the last church age, the time we are in right now, would be a wealth-infused mega-corporation whose focus was on keeping the money flowing in while locking Jesus on the outside.

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. 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: 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. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.” Revelation 3:13-19 (KJV)

Are you thinking of “getting into the ministry”? Keep your day job if you want to follow Paul.

“Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.” Philippians 3:17 (KJV)

The Muslim Plan To Make America A Sharia Nation With All Americans Forced To Convert To Islam • Now The End Begins

The Islamic plan to turn Americans into Muslims and install Sharia Law in the United States did not begin with Barack Obama, even though it felt like it at the time. In reality, as you can see in this C-SPAN video from 1989, the plan has been in the works for quite a while.
islamic-plan-to-make-americans-muslims-sharia-law-america

Hamtramck, Michigan is officially the only city in America where Muslims form a majority after immigration from Bangladesh, Yemen and Bosnia. It is now welcoming Syrian refugees despite the Michigan governor wanting none in his state.

In all of human history, there have only ever been two religious political systems that have ever forcibly converted people at the edge of the sword. The Roman Catholic Church and Islam. When these groups are in the minority they are quiet and peaceable, when they are in the majority they are brutal dictators. To see how the Vatican did it, read a few pages of Foxe’s Book Of Martyrs, and to see how Islam is doing it right now, continue reading this article.

The plan to make Americans Muslim and install Sharia Law:

The Islamic plan to turn Americans into Muslims and install Sharia Law in the United States did not begin with Barack Obama, even though it felt like it at the time. In reality, as you can see in this C-SPAN video from 1989, the plan has been in the works for quite a while. This Muslim woman is speaking very honestly and openly, you should listen to her and believe what she’s telling you.

Barack Obama’s speech to the Muslim world in Cairo:

Pres. Obama delivered a speech on U.S.-Muslim relations from Cairo University. The President called for renewed Middle East peace talks as well as an agenda for economic and social development in the region. At least that’s what the official press blurb said. In reality, it was a one-hour bow to the Muslim world.

Make no mistake about it, when Muslims are small in number they are usually peaceful and quiet. But when their numbers in their host nations rise, they get very aggressive. As the Muslim population of Detroit has swelled, no-go zones in our own country have been created, and even the police are afraid to go in there.

Inside Hamtramck, America’s only Muslim-majority city:

Hamtramck, Michigan is officially the only city in America where Muslims form a majority after immigration from Bangladesh, Yemen and Bosnia. It is now welcoming Syrian refugees despite the Michigan governor wanting none in his state.

Muslim Majority – Hamtramck Has First Of Its Kind City Council:

Sharia Law in Dearborn Michigan:

Even with taking the terrorism aspect out of it, when Muslims exist in large numbers in America they take over whole city blocks for “daily prayer”, and they blast their Call To Prayer from loudspeakers 5 times per day. Why? Because the world Islam means “submission”, it does not mean “peace”.

Ten Obvious Reasons Why Islam is Not a Religion of Peace

  • #1: 18,000 deadly terror attacks committed explicitly in the name of Islam in just the last ten years.  (Other religions combined for perhaps a dozen or so).
  • #2: Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, had people killed for insulting him or for criticizing his religion.  This included women. Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad.
  • #3: Muhammad said in many places that he has been “ordered by Allah to fight men until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger.”  In the last nine years of his life, he ordered no less than 65 military campaigns to do exactly that. Muhammad inspired his men to war with the basest of motives, using captured loot, sex and a gluttonous paradise as incentives.  He beheaded captives,enslaved children and raped women captured in battle.  Again, Muslims are told to emulate the example of Muhammad.
  • #4: After Muhammad died, the people who lived with him and knew his religion best immediately fell into war with each other. Fatima, Muhammad’s favorite daughter, survived the early years among the unbelievers at Mecca safe and sound, yet died of stress from the persecution of fellow Muslims only six months after her father died.  She even miscarried Muhammad’s grandchild after having her ribs broken by the man who became the second caliph.It was the same caliph, Umar, who ordered the death of the first convert to Islam at Medina, an elderly leader who became a close companion to Muhammad and proved his worth in battle.  Sa’d ibn Ubadah was killed after a failed bid to be caliph. Fatima’s husband Ali, who was the second convert to Islam and was raised like a son to Muhammad, fought a civil war against an army raised by Aisha, Muhammad’s favorite wife – and one whom he had said was a “perfect woman.”  10,000 Muslims were killed in a single battle waged less than 25 years after Muhammad’s death.Three of the first four Muslim rulers (caliphs) were murdered.  All of them were among Muhammad’s closest companions.  The third caliph was killed by allies of the son of the first (who was murdered by the fifth caliph a few years later, then wrapped in the skin of a dead donkey and burned).  The fourth caliph (Ali) was stabbed to death after a bitter dispute with the fifth.  The fifth caliph went on to poison one of Muhammad’s two favorite grandsons.  The other grandson was later beheaded by the sixth caliph.

    The infighting and power struggles between Muhammad’s family members, closest companions and their children only intensified with time.  Within 50 short years of Muhammad’s death, even the Kaaba, which had stood for centuries under pagan religion, lay in ruins from internal Muslim war…And that’s just the fate of those within the house of Islam!

  • #5: Muhammad directed Muslims to wage war on other religions and bring them under submission to Islam.  Within the first few decades following his death, his Arabian companions invaded and conquered Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist and Zoroastrian lands. A mere 25 years after Muhammad’s death, Muslim armies had captured land and people within the borders of over 28 modern countries outside of Saudi Arabia.
  • #6: Muslims continued their Jihad against other religions for 1400 years, checked only by the ability of non-Muslims to defend themselves.  To this day, not a week goes by that Islamic fundamentalists do not attempt to kill Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists explicitly in the name of Allah. None of these other religions are at war with each other.
  • #7: Islam is the only religion that has to retain its membership by formally threatening to kill anyone who leaves.  This is according to the example set by Muhammad.
  • #8: Islam teaches that non-Muslims are less than fully human.  Muhammad said that Muslims can be put to death for murder, but that a Muslim could never be put to death for killing a non-Muslim.
  • #9: The Quran never once speaks of Allah’s love for non-Muslims, but it speaks of Allah’s cruelty toward and hatred of non-Muslims more than 500 times.
  • #10: “Allahu Akbar!  Allahu Akbar!  Allahu Akbar!”  (The last words from the cockpit of Flight 93)
