The APOSTASY

APOSTASY = Another Jesus, another Spirit, another Gospel, another "christ" -- Galatians 1:6

The anti-Christ Beast and the False Prophet are the main pied-pipers of the apostate global common cause, in the end time scenario. Many factors come together to bring forth their roles, the main factor being: religion based on error ( the false all-inclusive religions )
APOSTASY --

Here are some enlightening quotes from the Bible to help us discern truth from error :
"Having a form of godliness ( religion ) but denying the Power thereof " [ Holy Spirit ] 2 Timothy 3: 5
The Power is Jesus come in the flesh and His Holy Spirit. "The only Potentate" ( highest Being of Power ) 1 Timothy 6:15
"I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the Power of God unto Salvation " Romans 1:16


"There be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you, let him be accursed." Galatians 1: 7, 8
"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." Galatians 1: 9

"For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received,
or another gospel, which ye have not accepted ....
( v3 ) I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety ( appealing persuasion ) ,
so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ ( Jesus ) ." 2 Corinthians 11: 4

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works"
2 Corinthians 11:13-15


"
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed." 2 John 10

We are not to have guests or door-knockers enter our home ( or by TV, radio, literature etc. ) who bring another gospel ( error ). We are not to read their literature or have any conversation with them.
We are not to show them the error of their ways, nor are we to battle it out with them quoting Bible verses.
We are to let go 100 % and let God handle them. "from such turn away"
2 Timothy 3

We are not to listen to erroneous teaching on the radio, internet or television or any other source. We are to Feed our Faith, and starve our doubts at all costs.
"I know in Whom I have believed."
2 Timothy 1 :12

"
Matthew 24:23-26
Then if any man shall say unto you,
'Lo, here is Christ', or,' there'; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders;
( see
2 Thessalonians 2: 3 )
insomuch that if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before"

"If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
And the sign or the wonder COME TO PASS, whereof he spake unto thee, saying,
"Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them."
Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
" Deuteronomy 13

We must notice that in the above statement that the limited power of Satan can cause miraculous phenomenon.
So the litmus test of a false teacher is not the phenomenon which actually does take place, but the teaching itself. Does the person preach Jesus Christ according to the Scriptures, or does he entice you not to believe the Bible, nor to
put your trust solely in Jesus Christ ?

Again, concerning false prophets: "he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God." Deuteronomy 13: 5

So the bottom line isn't the performance of the prophet, but the
* teaching* of the prophet. He may be a wonder worker, but does he honor the Living God, the Trinity, and Jesus as Lord found within the true Gospel ( KJV ) ?
Does one love and serve the Biblical KJV Jesus Christ of sound doctrine more, because of the prophet ?
That's the measuring stick whereby we ascertain truth. The Holy Spirit will guide us into all Truth. John 16: 13


In these last days, false teaching (error) will increase exponentially. Those who have built their spiritual houses upon the ROCK of Jesus Christ--- as taught in solid sound  Biblical doctrine---will stand.

Rob Bell teaches there is no hell, that all people are saved. Those are false teachings, and contrary to Biblical sound doctrine.
http://www.albertmohler.com/2011/04/15/a-massive-shift-coming-in-what-it-means-to-be-a-christian-time-magazine-considers-rob-bell/

Those who have built their spiritual houses on sand---- man's opinion, philosophies, wrongful interpretations,
corrupted texts and "popularity beliefs", such as OSAS  [once saved always saved] , and political correctness -- will fall prey to the System.
Matthew 7:24-27

PAVING THE WAY
2 Thessalonians 2 http://hopetotheend.com/2Thess2.html

The Apostle Paul---in Thessalonians Chapter 2---warns about this apostate precondition that paves the way for the 2 beasts to arise. This occurs before we can go in the rapture:

"For that day ( the Day of the Rapture, our gathering together ) shall NOT come, except
There come A FALLING AWAY FIRST
" ( Apostasy ) ----a falling away from the inerrancy of the Bible ( KJV ) and also from the basic fundamental doctrines. This falling away from foundations will take place within major organized religions , who unite and embrace a new world order of social justice, based upon a Social-Gospel of salvation by "works". While social justice can be admirable, it is also highly political and manipulative. Our works in the Last Days can be found in Matthew 25:31-46.

Please see
United Religions (UR)...
When churches and people sign the UR [United Religions] Initiative , they are saying that they believe that all faiths are equal.
That is not so, for not all faiths believe that JESUS ALONE saves.
John 14: 6

If we read the
Book of Hebrews from Chapter 1 verse 1 all the way through to Chapter 13 verse 25 we will see for ourselves that all faiths are definitely not equal. The Just One (only God) died for the unjust.
We are not 'gods' with a spark of the divine within. We are wretched sinners on our way to hell unless we repent .

Only Biblical (KJV-Authorized) Doctrine is solid and true. All other "faiths" are erroneous, corrupted and twisted, and are a perversion of truth. Only the
Bible has withstood the tests of time.
False religion (URI, global religion) parallels religion as much as possible, but their bottom line is totally different. That is why they are called "Tares"
( weeds that look like wheat ,
Matthew 13) because URI imitates as much as possible in order to seduce others; but once one becomes ensnared, the end brings them out all wrong.

The basic error taught in all false religions is that : we are, or can become, "gods". deciding eternal truths for ourselves.
True Christianity serves the Living God, Almighty Jesus Christ of Nazareth, who is one with the Father
John 10:30.
True Christianity believes in the Trinity....
3 distinct Persons in One Godhead...the Father, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.
Jesus Alone is Lord. We are not 'lords' or 'gods'.

"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we MUST be saved"
Acts 4:12 .
His name is "JESUS"..."Yeshua"

So we see then that there will NOT be a Rapture, until a great split comes within Christendom...the wheat and the tares will divide over politically-correct religion. URI
The Tares unite FIRST (See Matthew 13:30 and 39, 40 ). URI

When the Bride of Christ arises upward in the Midnight Rapture, then the 3 1/2 years of the Great Tribulation takes place.
Then later—into the GREAT Tribulation,  in Rev.16:15-- the Cockcrowing Rapture takes place ( wheat gathered into the barn, Matthew 13... called "The Good Harvest"   Rev. 14:14--16.)
Then at the end of the GREAT tribulation, the war of Armageddon takes place wherein all Tares (Matthew 13) and the grapes of wrath (Rev. 14:17-20) will be judged.

EVEN DENYING OUR LORD – 2 Peter 2:1 and JUDE 4
" The central doctrines of Christianity are first sidelined and hardly mentioned, then revised, and finally rejected.
Behind that process is the argument that the world has changed, and that Christianity must change with it. Harry Emerson Fosdick, one of the most influential leaders in American Protestant liberalism, argued that the modern world has simply rendered traditional Christian doctrines unintelligible to the modern man and woman. John Shelby Spong, the retired Episcopal bishop of Newark, New Jersey, put the issue bluntly: Christianity must change or die."


"Well, as even some conservatives left in the Dutch church recognize, if the church changes in the way the Dutch liberals are changing it, it is spiritually and theologically dead already. There is a new religion of somethingism in the Netherlands, and it is not a new form of Christianity. It is a new religion meeting in historic Christian church structures" emphasis by this website

URI---United Religions Initiative--concerns All major religious leaders and their affiliates endorsing this global governmental-religious policy.
Will all main-line denomination "shepherds"  hand over their sleeping sheep to the False Prophet, a politician, who implements all the rules of the NWO, New World Order ?

We must not be so naive as to be surprised when our most trusted 'Christian' leaders fall away. We are to have our trust in Jesus Christ ALONE. URI will reveal who is truly married to Jesus Christ, and who are wedded to politically correct religion (the world).
"The whole world lieth in wickedness" 1 John 5:19


These apostates are compromised and bought; and they have forsaken Jesus Christ... all the while professing Christianity. Their consciences are seared.
1 TIMOTHY 4:1,2...."Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron"


Will your local church affiliate?...your trusted spokesman ?
Will you personally affiliate?....will you sign the Initative ?

Only those grounded in the meat of God's Word (daily studying and researching) , and who are interfacing with Jesus daily through His Holy Spirit will have the Discernment necessary to separate Truth from Error, and the strength necessary not to go with the flow.

("Though none go with me, I still will follow Jesus ; no turning back, no turning back.") From the song: "I have decided to follow Jesus"
Rev. 18:4
"Come out of her my people"....out of
Ecumenical Religious Babylon.
w.jeremiahproject.com/prophecy/ecumen01.html
"Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision"....Joel 3:14


This Initiative currently being drafted by United Religions will pertain to every facet of our lives. "Church" is not just a segment of time on a scheduled day of the week. "Church" ......(relationship with one's God) is intrinsic to every second of our life; it affects all of our actions. It is our very lifestyle. That is why there never can be separation of God and State as it is implemented today....trying to separate God from one's lifestyle. [Lifestyle... "sitzenbleiben" or "Lebensart "] The Constitution forbids it.

Our US Constitution stated that there should be a true separation of Church and State, meaning that the government could not enforce legislations that would interfere with our Judeo-Christian lifestyle. The government could not tell us what to do in matters pertaining to religion. This was emphatically put down in writing by our Forefathers.
We now have words meaning 180 degrees opposite of their intended usage. (Lies...."newspeak")

See how cleverly they have circumvented our Godly Constitution? They have superseded it with global government, thereby nullifying all that our Forefathers laid down for a Foundation. Our Constitutional Foundation prohibited tyrannical government from interfering in one's religion. Our Forefathers came to America--- this last bastion of refuge--- fleeing religious persecution. [Just like in "Sound of Music"] They knew well the bottom line of human government.....the evil desire for total control.
Jesus came to set men free. John 8:36..."If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
Controlling-Religion-and-Governments come to put men in bondage.
Matthew 23:4..."For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers".

Galatians 1: 6-10 "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."


What is the true Gospel ? That Jesus Christ of Nazareth died for all men;
and that through one's trust in His shed blood at Calvary,
and by our repenting of our sins and changed lifestyle,
we can have forgiveness of our sins and eternal life.
That is the Good News. Otherwise we are all destined for hell.
There is no "other " Gospel.

ENDORSEMENT
"Laodicea" means "of the people"

The key word in all of this is ENDORSEMENT:
The people ENDORSE United Religions:
United Religions ENDORSE the False Prophet:
The False Prophet ENDORSES the 666 System and the antiChrist,
who ENDORSES Satan......."and they worshipped the Dragon". Rev. 13:4
ENDORSEMENT = BETRAYAL OF JESUS CHRIST
"Judas with a kiss.....'Christians' with an ENDORSEMENT"

We now have a great "Love and Peace" Fest.
The False Prophet will be talking "love, compassion, unity, and peace with security ".
He and his followers will have a hypocritical Inclusive-tolerance of all ecumenical-religions;
They will worship the planet through extreme environmentalism [ earth-ethic]
and the goddess GAIA...wind, earth, fire, water and spirit....the natural elements.)
They will worship the creation, but not the Creator. Romans 1.

And the anti-Christ will be talking "peace ...... with security forces"
( Daniel 8:25......."and by peace shall destroy many")

Through the Crucible

This self-love-Fest ultimately ends in Hate and the Death of the Born-Agains, those deeply committed Christians, and all Bible-Believers. Global Religion postures "inclusiveness" and "tolerance", but it reviles those who love Jesus Christ exclusively. This persecution is even now gaining momentum against the people of the Book.

Everyday the FBI comes out with more warnings of "apocalyptic" mayhem from biblical reference groups. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the Christians who are being targeted at Peducah, Littleton and Fort Worth?
How did Freeh and the Justice Department twist it around so that the victims became perpetrators?...... Through indoctrination and word-smiths.
Project Megiddo.

Waco was a haven of defense for their followers. Yet the Media and law officials twisted that into an "offense" against the government. The Waco believers feared the government, and their fears proved true.
Government was supposed to protect freedom of religion....not send SWAT teams and grenades against it.
Governments fear true religion (relationship) because it captures the heart.
Government can only capture the baited-vote. Voters can be indoctrinated, when truth is denied.

WICKED COMMERCIALISM .......MYSTERY BABYLON

This is MYSTERY BABYLON...
hopetotheend.com/caesar.html w.alaska.net/~fcp/docs/MysteryBabylon/m1_intro.htm
a religious-political-commercial mix. (Rev.17 and 18). World Trade

The False Prophet will be enforcing the agenda of the united-global "religion"
(using "social-justice" for his Machiavellian CAUSE... resulting in classless societies.
Thus ends Capitalism and mom and pop shops (enterpreneural businesses )


While Capitalism does have its excesses of greed and exploitation
( mainly by monopoly ...breaking anti-trust laws), it does allow for individualism and free choice. Because American Businesses ( the Fortune 500 etc. ) have abused the privileges of free enterprise and have become monarchs of monopolies, we are being judged, and our expressions of individuality are being taken away. See "Tyrus"
hopetotheend.com/3bibi.html

NAFTA, GATT and the WTO are bent on making us all cogs in a wheel with survival-only wages (parity). That's their concept of "social justice". When the new rules and standardizations are enforced, this will make and break nations. Food will be the weapon used for diabolical control. We are already seeing this played out in today's embargoes and sanctions (starvation, malnutrition). Not only will food be used to control nations, but it will be the weapon of choice to coerce individuals to take the 666 mark of the Beast ---  Revelation 13:16--18.
This is wicked, bloody commercialism and banking. Evil economics...Mystery Babylon

[mystery-whore-Babylon.... hopetotheend.com/ode.html
Rev/Apoc 17:6 "drunk with the blood of the saints" ]
Yet we are to "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer." Rev. 2:10
"and they loved not their lives unto the death" Rev. 12:11
For more on "Babylon" please see Chapter 8

IT's A STRANGE , STRANGE WORLD WE LIVE IN

It seems strange that children were once innocent and docile and have turned jaded and bold....
or else they live with overwhelming fears and emotional abandonment.

All of this is our new society...our brave new world...our harlot on the Beast....drunken with blood. "And when I saw her I wondered" Rev.17:6

It's no secret that judgement is coming here to America. Everyday we hear the drumbeats louder and louder than the day before, relentlessly drumming away their forebodings : war, economic disaster, terrorism etc. We all hear it. We can all feel it. We know that it is long overdue because of our falling away from the Living God.

Why is America's apostasy so incurable? Perhaps the answer lies in Jeremiah 18: 11,12:
"Thus says the LORD: 'Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you. Return [repent] ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good"


And they said, "There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will everyone do the imagination of his evil heart."
In essence they were saying.......'God's judgement is impossible! We would rather walk according to our own plans, and according to our own counsels of heart'. [paraphrased]

From that time on they came against the messenger and his message.

May we pray to be delivered from rationalization. May we love the TRUTH found only in God's Holy Word, the Bible. May we read it everyday, watching for the signs of His coming.....watching unto prayer. May we rise to the courage needed in this hour. Amen.
