“Let no man deceive you any means; for that day shall not come, except there comes a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition (Satan); 2 Thessalonians 2:3 KJV
Perdition: a state of eternal punishment and damnation into which a sinful and un-penitent person passes after death.
If you are a Christian you know and understand God has “allowed” Satan to rein the world for a period of time. The very name of Satan speaks of “rebellion” against all that is good and right. Satan knowing his time is short will only serve to fuel his wrath.
Satan’s power is so extensive that he is over all the nations of the earth. Jesus calls him the ruler of this world (John 14:30). He effects people’s attitudes by moving their reasoning processes toward self-satisfaction. He gives disinformation and stirs up our spirit.
The cross being chosen as a method of redemption for sinners of all time and Satan’s hate of the cross is shown in the actions of atheist’s and Muslim’s every day. Why should a “wooden” cross cause so much hate and fear otherwise?
We also know Satan’s time will end at God’s time. Rev. 12:7-12 KJV
But who are those that would stand in Satan’s army here on earth to help him carry out his wrath. Signals are being placed before us all.
On December 2, 2014 the Lake Worth City, FL Commission allowed atheist Preston Smith to lead them in the opening prayer to be given to Satan. After giving permission for the prayer to be said, the Mayor and three of the commissioners walked out of the room before the name of Satan was invoked. His prayer: “Our collective atheism, which is to say loving empathy, scientific evidence and critical thinking, leads us to believe that we can create a better, more equal community without religious divisions,” Smith began. “May we pray together,” he continued:
“Mother Earth, we gather today in your redeeming and glorious presence to invoke your eternal guidance in the universe, the original creator of all things. May the efforts of this council blend the righteousness of Allah with the all-knowing wisdom of Satan? May Zeus, the great god of justice, grant us strength tonight. Jesus might forgive our shortcomings, while Buddha enlightens us through his divine affection. We praise you, Krishna, for the sanguine sacrifice that freed us all. After all, if Almighty Thor is with us, who can ever be against us?”
The mayor and four of the five commissioners walked out before Smith began his prayer (speech). Christopher McVoy, the only commissioner who elected to stay for the invocation, stated he found his colleagues to be “un-American.” McVoy argues that according to the Constitution covering the 1st Amendment, Stevens or any other atheist has the right to address the commission – our soldiers have fought and died for that right.
I guess McVoy is right, but to what level are we allowing Satan worshipers, atheist’s and Muslims to take control of religion in this country since in evoking their first amendment they want to remove those of Christians.
Or is the issue that the commissioners and mayor were not protesting the First Amendment or the man’s free speech, they just chose not to listen to a ‘prayer’ from an atheist. Free speech is supposed to work both ways.
To me, atheists are a joke since you have to believe in something to not believe in it. Not all atheists are Satan worshippers however, some are Humanist’s.
It is estimated that 46% of atheists around the country attend Unitarian Universalist (UU) churches which is officially referred to as a ‘religion’ without a faith or creed. They have seven foundational principles which are about acting morally and none of them refer to God.
C.S. Lewis once said the opposite of a belief in God is not a belief in nothing; it is a belief in anything. Atheists tend to be progressive as they feel comfortable in the social justice crowd helping to advance their fight against Christians.
Why all the effort to take Christians rights away when as a rule, Christians just ignore atheists? John Buehrens a UU minister stated in regard to atheists and the UU church, ‘We (UU) stand for the real, ethical, spiritual core or religion across confessional and tribal. We have plenty of room even for authentic, non-violent “atheists” or skeptics. But I will not allow those filled with murderous hatred of religion to get away with pretending that zealous atheism has not at times been a demonic pseudo-religion of its own’.
I believe Hollywood for the most part has been totally taken over by Satan. It used to be that sexual and mature materials were not to be shown on TV prior to 9 P.M. Now on at any time during the day (and no the kids are not always in school) anything goes – even sexy ads addressing Viagra.
Television shows based totally on free, open marriages with no family base; The Bachelor showing it is ok to marry someone you really don’t know for money; Modern Family a showing of everything liberal and why families are out of control; Revenge a show which bases a person’s whole life on just that – revenge.
With television venturing into path-breaking and coming of age themes (raw sex, nudity, vampires) with every new TV Series directors and actors seem to have grown comfortable with onscreen nudity and vulgarity. Then there are those TV shows that are so unapologetically bold, they literally blow you over with their content reaching into every corner of immorality and vulgarity.
These TV shows place the actors and directors out there in the club of no morals, values or ‘I will do anything for money” – Californication, Shameless, Orange is the New Black, Masters of Sex, True Blood, Games of Thrones, Girls, The American Horror Story and Dexter.
I wonder if they approve of their children watching these shows!
And no I am not a prude, but I believe the sex and vulgarity does not need to be out there for small children nor do I care to witness what others might do in their bedrooms. These people appear to have no class or morals.
How many of you fell to the bait of the apocalyptic fiction series “Left Behind” by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins is pretty clear. LaHaye was one of the founders of the Council for National Politics (CNP) along with Pat Robertson, Nelson Hunt and T. Cullen Davis.
LaHaye is not all that he appears to be. He is a Baptist minister with a Doctor of Ministry degree and he served as the pastor of the Memorial Church in San Diego for 25 years, leaving to promote his interests and beliefs through what he called conservative politics. I however, don’t see LaHaye as a conservative in any way, shape or form.
He attended Bob Jones University known to be an anti-Catholic and Fundamentalist school and between 1950 and 2000, they maintained a policy against interracial dating among students explaining that intermarriage among the races would further the cause of “One World Government” and thus the Antichrist. It came to light that during the 1970’s LaHaye’s church had funded ‘Mission to Catholics’ an anti-Catholic group run by a former Carmelite priest by the name of Bart Brewer.
LaHaye founded the Pre-Tribulation Research Center along with Dr. Thomas Ice in 1998. The center is dedicated to producing material that supports a dispensationalist, pre-tribulation interpretation of the Bible, and has many preachers associated with their website. I am not however, going to argue Pre or Post Tribulation in this article as the focus of this article is not on that.
I personally lost my respect for LaHaye when I found out he held the position of PAID chairman with Sun Myung Moon’s now defunct Coalition for Religious Freedom (CRF). If you remember Moon was the founder of the Unification Church and his followers were referred to as ‘Moonies”. Moon saw himself as a self-proclaimed “Messiah” and “the Lord of the Second Advent” teaching heresy stating that not only did Jesus have sex with all the women who followed him but that Jesus had failed in His earthly ministry.
Keep in mind any Christian leader who accepts money from a Moon organization is beholden to them remembering the general principle: “the Devil always gets his due”.
LaHaye’s association with Moon is especially perplexing since as a man who has written so many books warning people about the Antichrist, LaHaye is one of the last people you would expect to line himself up with a man who literally defame’s Christ. LaHaye’s reasoning is that he didn’t necessarily agree with Moon’s doctrine, but then we can’t be sure what he preaches if we haven’t heard him.
But LaHaye was supporting and promoting Moon events.
In 1985, Carolyn Weaver exposed that LaHaye had received a substantial amount of funds from Moon’s top aid Bo Hi Pak. It was discovered on a tape of a ‘thank you’ letter from LaHaye acknowledging the $500K+ donation.
LaHaye also supports the occult theory of the four temperaments – an ancient system devised to understand human nature and improve people by dividing them according to their temperament. “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” [2 John 1:10-11]
Robert Parry, an investigative journalist best known for his coverage of the Iran-Contra affair and Moon’s involvement with military dictators and drug cartels in Latin America and the Japanese Yakuza for AP and Newsweek also uncovered some interesting things in relation to Moon, Jerry Falwell and others who are considered part of the Christian right!
On Jan. 28, 1995, a beaming Rev. Jerry Falwell told his Old Time Gospel Hour congregation news that seemed heaven-sent letting them know the financial problems of Liberty University had been taken care of.
In the late 1980s, a flood of red ink had forced Falwell to abandon his Moral Majority political organization and by 1995 he had nearly drowned Liberty University into bankruptcy. The fundamentalist Christian school that Falwell had made the crown jewel of his Religious Right empire was in real trouble.
Who was this savior of Falwell’s enormous debt? Left unmentioned to the media and the congregation was the identity of the guardian angel that had been protecting Falwell’s financial interests from a distance and without publicity. That secret benefactor was the Rev. Moon, who because of his bizarre Biblical interpretations and his brainwashing tactics had torn thousands of young people from their families.
Covertly, Moon helped bail out Liberty University by funneling $3.5 million to the ‘Women’s Federation for World Peace’ which had been chaired by Beverly LaHaye, who in turn paid the money to the Dan Reber/Jimmy Thomas Christian Heritage Foundation, which then in turn bought Falwell’s $73M debt.
Falwell like LaHaye spoke at Moon functions, embracing the cult leader with friendship and unabashed reverence. According to official court records of a lawsuit that was filed in Bedford County Circuit Court (West Virginia), it was alleged that Falwell and an associate flew to South Korea, January 9, 1994 to meet with Unification Church officials. This trip came shortly before Falwell was awarded the Moon money. (More on Moon later).
It is sad for this researcher to finally understand people you thought were servants of Christ are nothing more than cheap charlatans, false prophet’s, cultist’s and liars.
Some people will choose to not believe this research as they do about many things presented to them. All we can do is blow Ezekiel’s Horn and hope that some true Christians will pass the message on.
