A Voice in the
"Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many...will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the Master of the house has risen up and shut the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock at the door, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open for us,' and He will answer and say to you, 'I do not know you, where you are from," (Luke 13:24-25)
Today's (June 23,96) headline, "Arab Leaders Seek Unity." A week- end summit to discuss the Israel "problem." [emphasis mine] A newly elected Israeli prime minister is not handing over Israeli territory to the Arabs on a silver platter. Arabs saying, "the peace process could be ruined if Israel abandons the land-for-peace formula. Other articles indicate that this summit is creating a unity the Arabs have never before known.
Sound familiar? "That very day Pilate and Herod became friends with each other, for previously they had been at enmity." (Lk 23:12) The occasion? Crucifixion of Jesus!
God will judge. (Zep 2:4-15)
Next week (June 24-28,96) "The World Religions & Emerging Global Civilization: An Interfaith Summit Conference" is occurring in San Francisco. The purpose? To move United Religions from "concept to reality," providing the core for the "State of the World Forum" in SF in Oct, 96. Uniting ALL religions of the world by the year 2000.
"All religions" means "ALL" religions. Hindu, Islam, Shinto, Buddhism, Baptist, Catholic, Native American, Voodoo...to name but a few.
"I saw another beast coming up out of the earth...he spoke like a dragon...and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast...he performs great signs...in the sight of men...he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs...causes as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed." (Rev 13:11-15~)
An emerging "leader" claims, "On January 1st of the year 2000 all inhabitants of planet Earth accessible through all communication means will be linked to receive and share for one minute a message, in musical language, that can be universally understood as a way to empower the individual and express its belonging to the global community." Maitreya will "overshadow" all humanity simultaneously. Each person will under- stand inwardly, telepathically, in their own language.
The precursors of this are already happening NOW. On Public (classical) Radio, I have noted that days where there is heavy demonic oppression in the region, PBS plays music of occult, New Age tendencies. It is orchestrated equally at the local AND national level. Too coinci- dental to be of man's doings.
The Good Shepherd.."the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own by name and leads them out. Yet they will by no means follow a stranger, will flee from him, they do not know the voice of strangers."(Jn10:3,5)
Many cults are drawing away thousands. Promise Keepers seeks to break down racial barriers. They seek to create unity by "tearing down walls" of Doctrinal differences.
"..give attention to..doctrine: you have carefully followed my doctrine: holding fast the faithful word..by sound doctrine" (1Tm4:13,2Tm3:10,Tit1:9
Prayer Summits, March for Jesus. Again, ignoring doctrine, any "faith" is welcome to join in. Much time is spent "praying to" Satan. Locally, March for Jesus includes "Native American" singing & dancing. Worship of "Mother Earth." Worship of nature "protects" animals at the cost of man's livelihood. Man was told to "have dominion" over the earth. (Gen1:28) And that the earth was created FOR man's habitation. (Isa45:18) New Age political agenda places "Mother Earth" ahead of man.
God made an example of Egypt some 3500 years ago, when He de- stroyed the LAND of Egypt. The 10 plagues were God's judgment of Egypt's gods.(Ex12:12) In Revelation we see how God will destroy Earth. The oceans, trees and grass, mountains will be shaken flat, rivers and oceans will be polluted; sun, moon and stars will be affected. Over half of earth's population will be killed.
"I will consume man and beast; I will consume the birds of the heavens, The fish of the sea, And the stumbling blocks along with the wicked. I will cut off man from the face of the land," Says the LORD. ...I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, The names of the idolatrous priests with the pagan priests; Those who worship the host of heaven on the housetops; Those who worship and swear oaths by the LORD, But who also swear by Milcom; ...The LORD will be awesome to them, For He will reduce to nothing all the gods of the earth; People shall worship Him, Each one from his place, Indeed all the shores of the nations. (Zeph 1:3-5,2:11)
The "pagan" world's head-long rush to the Anti-Christ has so per- meated society that even our new cars reflect the anticipation. The car one drives supposedly tells a lot about that person. There is hardly an automotive company that does not have some model of car or truck with headlights and/or taillights copying the Occult Psychic-hypnosis-induced images of "alien" beings, which are actually demons. Or science fiction's vision of man's ultimate evolution.
So, what about the "Church?" "My people are bent on backsliding from Me. Though they call to the Most High, None at all exalt Him.(Hos11:7)
In how many churches does the pastor teach "sound doctrine?" How many churches are standing firm AGAINST the world and false doctrine, refusing to be tainted by the world? In the FEW cases that can answer these questions correctly, how many come before God in humility, without boasting in their self-righteousness?
Scholars claim, according to current calendars, God created the Earth in 4004BC. Jesus was born in 4BC. Hosea, in speaking of God's judgment on Israel, says "after two days He will revive us; on the third day He will raise us up."(Hos6:2) Peter explains, "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."(2Pet3:8)
We are NOW approaching the end of 2000 years of Israel's rejection. God's mighty hand on Israel's behalf is poised. Many of man's "One World Religion" activities begin in 1999, including the "Journey of the Magi" beginning in January 6,1999, probably including participation by the Pope. This trek will culminate in Bethlehem. "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand)(Mat 24:15)
The beast.."was given authority..for 42 months; they will tread the holy city underfoot for 42 months; The 'woman'..has a place prepared by God..1260 days." (Rev13:5,11:2,12:6)
"The great day of the LORD is near; It is near and hastens quickly."(Zep1:14)
