Understanding End-Times Prophecy
Prophecy, is the clear evidence that God inspired the Bible. This confirms why it is known as: the Word of God. Prophecy is what distinguishes the Bible from all other religious writings. For no other book has or can, foretell events before they happen with 100% accuracy! Then as often times it is with the Bible, the prophecies can be hundreds or thousands of years in advance; sometimes with exacting detail.
The Lord declared that He alone can prophesy the future and bring it to pass...
So how can we correctly and confidently interpret the prophecies of the Bible?
Though these things I mentioned could be helpful, they definitely are not reliable!
What we must do, is to develop an intimate relationship with the Author of the Bible, the Holy One who wrote it. For there is only one person that God will reveal himself to, and that person is found at John 14:21...
Then also verse 23...
Remember, a close trusting relationship does not develop in a day, a week or a month - it takes time and builds.
For you see, God has two thrones; one in the highest of Heaven, and the second is in a humble and submissive heart.
Though a person may be Born-Again, saved by the Blood of Jesus Christ and on their way to Heaven, it does not mean that God sits on the throne of their heart. In fact, God is not on the thrones of most Christian’s hearts, the rhetorical question Jesus asks in Luke 18: 8 is - "when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?" is a valid point.
Most all Christians today have a man, a Bible college, self-interests or themselves on that throne. In fact, most all Christians of today do idolize men, in one way or another. Therefore, God Himself cannot show them the way nor teach them, as He promised in His Word. Verses such as...
You must, and again I say you must abide in the Holy Spirit, and have Him on your throne. Otherwise you silence Him and are then at the mercy of man and Satan’s influence. In the Book of John chapters 14 to 16 and Acts chapter 1, Jesus instructed His disciples to lean on the Holy Spirit for Truth, just as they had leaned on Him! [This is not any reference to the deceptive tongues-speaking Charismatic movement, which is not of God.]
Also, if you want your prayer’s answered, it is the same formula...
Now moving on to II Peter 1:19-21...
Let us focus now on verse 20 from above, "knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation".
As to this verse, every Bible college or institute will tell you that the words, "private interpretation" in this verse means that if ‘your interpretation’ is not within the realms of their majority interpretation, it is heresy and just your "private interpretation".
But Biblically speaking, verse 20 means this:
That no prophecy, doctrine or statement in scripture will stand alone (privately) outside of the Bible as a whole, nor contradict any other scripture within it. In other words, all correctly interpreted prophecies or doctrines will stand in harmony with all the rest of the Bible; in whole and in part. An improperly constructed prophecy or interpretation will be at odds with and will contradict some portion of scripture, thereby making it a… “private (stand alone) interpretation”. Also - the Bible as a whole can be and is considered prophecy.
Remember this also: the Old Testament prophets were not of the majority opinion in their day either.
This important passage affirms that prophecy is significant to the Bible-believing Christian in several ways.
The important principles of prophecy are:
Following are a couple examples of prophecy not commonly taught, or that is not taught correctly -
It is commonly taught that the Antichrists end-time kingdom, the ten-toes of Daniel Chapter 2 verses 39 to 44, are ten nations of the European Union, which were part of the Roman Empire from two thousand years ago. But this is a private interpretation, for it defies (contradicts) the context.
The context is found at the end of verse 39 - "… which shall bear rule over all the earth”. This is in conjunction with a corroborative prophecy in Daniel 7:23 - "… the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth". Therefore there has to be a dividing of the whole earth into 10 super-nations or kingdoms. Besides, if the 10 nations/kingdoms were just 10 countries in Europe, then the other nations on this globe - Russia, China, Australia, Americas, etc - would be left un-accounted for!
So then... how does the iron in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, which is the old Roman Empire, fit in? By study of history you find that the Roman Catholic Church got its start with the Roman Emperor, Constantine in the 4th Century. Though he held the title of Caesar, Constantine also held the title, Pontifex Maximus of the Empire’s pagan priesthood, known as the Pontifical College; as also did the succeeding Emperors. Therefore the Popes of the Vatican are not the successors to the Apostle Peter, as most have been conditioned to believe. But the Popes are however - the successors to Constantine and the old Roman Empire.
Roman Catholicism has "mingled themselves with the seed of men" (Daniel 2:43), all over the entire globe, with agreements or treaties that are termed: Concordats. Notice also that the leg changes angle at the foot, transforming from leg to foot with no ‘break’ in the transition, this continues the Roman Empire all the way through to the ‘End-Times’. Therefore this reflects the transformation of the Roman Empire from a primarily political entity to one that is primarily religious. The Roman Empire as it deteriorated and was finally subdued, basically converted from Caesars to Popes. God does not miss details. Also, the current Vatican is a government and nation all its own. It sends and receives ambassadors as well.
A study of the New World Order (NWO) defines the 10-nations as:
From the book - ‘Mankind at the Turning Point’, by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, published by; E. P. Dutton and Co., INC./Reader’s Digest Press, New York 1974.
‘Ten Kingdoms With the Beast’, Newswatch Magazine, March-April 1984, page 12-15.
'Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System', by Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel, by, The Club of Rome, September 17, 1973.
‘A Planned Deception: the Staging of a New Age Messiah', by Constance Cumbey, Pointe Publishers, 1985, pages 208 - 209.
Please recognize the Biblical truth that the kingdom of Antichrist will be established gradually, through conspiracy and cabals to re-organize the World into 10 super-nations for the express purpose of staging Antichrist, when they have their stratagem set. Then the handing over to him of all authority.
A couple of countries have switched kingdoms, since this scheme was originally conceived by a faction of the United Nations known as, The Club of Rome (interesting name don’t you think?). Here is their logic behind the scheme: there are way too many individual countries to control effectively, therefore they created 10 – regions who are to construct a unity of politics, economics and religion within themselves. Then once this is done, the ‘Antichrist’ will have a more effective capability of uniting the 10 into 1.
Most people in this world will automatically reject something that they see or hear that does not go along with what they want to believe, or what they have been taught to believe, or what they are comfortable with. So please, stay with us for the rest of this expedition.
Most of us live in our little comfort zones or paradigms and will reject anything, which takes us out of them.
Why do people automatically reject? It is out of psychological self-defense. Many have a hard time dealing with reality and therefore have a hard time handling truth. The light of truth is too bright for these people, who will want to return to the 'safe comfort' of their darkness.
Now why do I bring this up? It is because things are happening outside of the Media generated reality and scholarly perceptions, to bring about a Global Ruler. These happenings to which I and a few others speak to, can be and are shocking and astonishing, sometimes down-right frightening.
So do yourself and your loved ones a favor, be objective by reading and researching things out for yourself, away from the standard, main stream media (msm) aka corporate media.
Another vastly important and contemporary mis-interpretation of the scripture, is this other verse in the Book of Daniel…
In the above verse, contemporary scholars wrongly proclaim that the word “covenant” means ‘peace treaty’. But a true Bible scholar sees the phrase, “he shall confirm the covenant” and immediately recognizes that the word “covenant” is a direct reference to the Old Testament covenant, and, that this is corroborated by the use of the phrase, “he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease”.
So to paraphrase this verse from Daniel: And Antichrist shall confirm the Old Testament covenant with many for 7 years (decreeing the Temple to be built and the sacrifices and oblations to begin): and in 3-1/2 years Antichrist shall cause the sacrifice and oblation to cease.
At that mid-week point, Antichrist would then go after the Jews.
Another scripture that needs to be understood to properly interpret End-Times prophecy, is Psalm 2:1-3…
Mankind has been in rebellion against the one true God, His Word and His true followers; ever since Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit. Mankind has its own systems of morality and ethics (better stated as veneers), which allows them to do as they please; without being confronted with the warnings and judgments of God - or so they wrongly believe.
Much of this rebellion is imposed on the masses of humanity by the masters of this world. They "imagine" to find ways to rid mankind of God. They "set themselves", which literally means that they take their stand against the God of the Bible, against Biblical morals and ethics, which they call the ‘Old World Order’. They want to rid themselves of God’s "cords" and "bands", the restraints that the true Godhead through the Bible imposes on them and society. This is so that they can establish the ‘New World Order’ - the kingdom of Antichrist!
The phrase we need to focus on in Psalm 2, is "and the rulers take council together, against the Lord". Rulers taking council together, means: to conspire, to plot a conspiracy, to create a cabal.
And conspire they have, the kings and rulers of this world have plotted over the last couple hundred years to overthrow the Old World Order, so that they can bring in their New World Order (globalism) to establish a One-World ruler and a One-World religion. This is why all the media outlets ridicule anyone who uses the C-word, conspiracy. This is designed to lead people away from this truth, so as to not search for it, and for you to mock, ridicule and dismiss anyone who even hints at a conspiracy. The populace is programmed to automatically think in their mind, that if a person believes absolutely anything to be a conspiracy: that they are - L O O N E Y !!
But if you look back through all of history, men have counseled with men, to overthrow rulers. Men and nations have plotted against other men and nations to overthrow rulers and governments. Governments conspire against their own people. Even companies conspire against other companies, and families conspire against other families, and Bankers conspire against everybody. If you extracted every vestige of conspiracy out of history, there would be very little history left to write about.
This word: conspire or conspiracy is used 30 times in the Authorized King James Bible. But even pastors and Bible college professors have bought into using that great obstructive weapon - ridicule; to blind us from that C-word - conspiracy. But the ultimate conspiracy as we have already stated, is found in Psalm 2:2-3, "The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, (3) Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us".
The entire history of mankind’s hatred against God, culminates in the prophecy…
Woodrow Wilson, President of the U.S. from 1913-1921, admitted that there was a vast conspiracy in his day, yet he became involved in it. He wrote in his memoirs, 'The New Freedom':
"Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it".
Mr. Wilson however, did not identify this power that he was very aware of.
Also, as far back as 1812, the President of Harvard University, Joseph Willard -- who retired to preach in Vermont -- took the occasion of his retirement speech on July 4, 1812 to express his concern over the events of the day. He declared, "There is sufficient evidence that a number of Societies of the Illuminati, have been established in this land of Gospel Light and civil liberty, which were first organized from the Grand society in France. They are doubtless, secretly striving to undermine all our ancient institutions, civil and sacred. These societies are closely leagued with those of the same order in Europe; they have all the same object in view".
Most occult groups and mystical societies went through periods of transformation, regardless of their edict due to a variety of reasons, usually surrounding unwanted exposure or pressure, or amalgamations with other groups.
As for the 'Illuminati of Bavaria', long since touted by anti-conspiracists as “disbanded” or “inactivated” centuries ago in the 1780’s; well... unfortunately there is a huge and well documented body of work explaining where this order 'disbanded'. Without wanting to type an essay on the subject, I can tell you that it was absorbed into Grand Orient Freemasonry in France after the Congress of Wilhelmsbad, which began July 16, 1782, and held at Meyer Amschel Rothschild's castle. It also moved into the other lodges of France by 1786. From there the Illuminati was absorbed into all the Grand Orient lodges world-wide. This was due to Adam Weishaupt, the credited founder of the Illuminati of Bavaria, with the help of Freemason, Baron Adolph Von Knigge.
Notably, Bavarian Illuminism influence is directly credited with creating a group called 'The Jacobins' which came from the lodges of Grand Orient Freemasonry in France. They are in turn credited with using their resources to create the ‘French Revolution of 1789’, and the ‘Whisky Rebellion’ in the U.S. in 1791, which George Washington had to suppress with military force.
Former president George Washington stated in a letter written to Rev. G. W. Snyder at Mount Vernon on October 24, 1798, "It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am". From 'Writings of Washington' page 452-453.
Unfortunately peoples grasp of Occult Societies and Mystical Orders has become so degenerated, that the 'illuminati' has now become synonymous with pop music videos, and news reader's with digital artifacts in their eyes. Unless the word "ILLUMINATI" or a big eye in a pyramid comes up, people think there's nothing there, despite the fact that the Illuminati of Bavaria has had a huge influence on the sociopolitical landscape for centuries and continues to do so to this day.
Today, this conspiracy or cabal uses terms such as ‘One-World’, ‘Globalism’, ‘A New Order’ and the most recent term ‘Global Governance’. We have all heard George W. Bush, his dad, Bill Clinton, other politicians and members of the United Nations using these terms on TV, in newspapers and in magazines.
Henry Kissinger stated back in 1975, "Our nation is uniquely endowed to play a creative and decisive role in the new order which is taking form around us" - Seattle Post, April 18, 1975.
A world government is being formed. The United Nations was established in 1945 to eventually consolidate all power to one man. But the vast majority of Americans refuse to believe that a world government has been forming, right before our very eyes! Even Christians are being deceived, wanting to believe that the Tribulation is several decades or more away; so that they can chase personal fortune and personal goals, just as the world does!
This, is the "mystery of iniquity" that the Apostle Paul refers to in - 2 Thessalonians 2:3-9.
The basic tenets of Christianity -- which were foundational for the Old Order -- have to be and are being eliminated, one by one. They are being replaced with the tenets of the New Order: abortion, gun control, public nudity, drug culture, situation ethics, sexual promiscuity, homosexuality, bisexuality, same-sex marriage, white and black magick witchcraft, New Age Movement, Wicca, etc. This has been done by a series of planned nibbles at the established Hebrew-Christian foundation. Then, it is all being sanctioned and promoted by the main stream media (msm) which they also control; which is why others call it the 'corporate media'.
Through unprecedented delusion: Bible colleges and institutes, pastors and churches have been promoting the New Order’s political illusions and scoffing at an alleged conspiracy. People simply cannot and do not want to believe that an absolute totalitarian dictatorship, based on satanic mystic pantheism will rule every human being on earth - in their lifetime. Most of the people of Germany did not see what was coming at them, in the days of Adolph Hitler either; until it was too late !!
While most Americans and Christians deny it, a world government IS forming and being implemented by the U.S., Europe, Russia, China and throughout other countries in the United Nations.
Former president George H.W. Bush addressing the US Congress on September 11, 1990, stated in his speech...
"We stand at a unique and extraordinary moment. This crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers us a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our objective -- a New World Order -- can emerge... A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today, that New World Order is struggling to be born -- a world quite different from the one we've known".
But if you look more closely and observe more carefully the happenings of history -- especially since Israel became a nation in 1948 -- you will see that there is a gradual and continuing pattern.
Thomas Jefferson warned that when you see a pattern of behavior on the part of government leaders over a period of time, it is proof of a conspiracy:
"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery" - The Works of Thomas Jefferson, (Vol. 1, page 130).
If you are a contemplative person and have been alert, you have noticed that it doesn’t much matter for whom you vote. Things keep continuing in the same general direction "through every change of ministers" whether democrat or republican, no matter what they promise in their pre-election speeches and/or during their elected term.
Thomas Jefferson also made another keen statement: “Experience hath shown; that even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power, have in time and by slow operations – perverted it into tyranny”.
A very high percentage of people who get their information from the corporate media (msm) will refuse to believe that government leaders want to enslave them. It is easier for them to assume that government leaders have the best interests of the people as a whole at heart, ignoring the extensive amount of evidence to the contrary. The obviously intolerable decisions made by these leaders, they will ascribe to greed, stupidity or incompetence. No one wants to believe that their leaders are set out on a machiavellian course to enslave them.
People have to have the courage to face the truth, and to warn others, especially in spiritual matters.
Since 1913, the Illuminati plan to globalize the world politically, economically and religiously, so that their New Age Masonic Christ can be staged... has persistently moved forward. Initially, their strategies were put into action from May 01, 1776 to the present, beginning with Mayer Amschel Bauer changing his last name from Bauer to Rothschild, prior to 1770; then founding the development of his cabal.
How are they pulling it off?
Ultimately the process of discovery will lead you into the esoteric world of secret societies and their concealed symbols. We live in a society that relies on the various media outlets and news room personalities for truth (msm), rather than encountering the realities and searching out the truth by our own research as individuals.
Abraham Lincoln back in his day stated that if you can control the media, you can control people’s opinions. Do not jump on the media’s bandwagons to only be indoctrinated with fabrications. Jump instead on your own, one built of your own research and study into the Bible and world events.
By proper research you will be able to recognize the influence of the occult puppet-masters in modern politics, finance, business, industry, education and religion.
Jesus himself warned us that deception was to be the hallmark characteristic of the End of the Age - Matthew 24: 4, 11 and 24.
The occult secret societies as with any religious system has its share of eccentrics, but they also boast members who are people of elite social standing. Many of the societies personalities of the last 400+ years include: military leaders, government and religious leaders, royalty, scientists, inventors, financiers, educators, actors and writers, who were or are actively involved in occult and mystic practices.
There are many of these societies under the umbrella of the Illuminati aka Moriah and Great White Brotherhood. Names of these secret societies include, but are not limited to: Rosicrucian’s, Freemasonry (Adepts) and Shriners. Also, Trilateral Commission, Skull and Bones, Bilderbergs, Council on Foreign Relations (USA), Royal Institute of International Affairs (Europe), Bohemian Grove, World Council of Churches, Rhode’s Scholars, Club of Rome, 56 Round Table, etc. Many are they, who are members of more than one group. All of the groups are as sections of an orchestra being conducted by none other than, Lucifer-Satan himself !
In George W. Bush's autobiography, 'A Charge to Keep', published in 1999, page 47, it states about his final year at Yale:
"My senior year I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society, so secret I can't say anything more".
The roots of the secret societies go back to the Ancient Mystery Religions of Ancient Babylon, or more specifically to: Sumer or Sumeria. This takes us back to Genesis chapter 11, where we find Nimrod building the Tower of Babel in his attempt to consolidate all political, religious, and economic power to himself. Of this pagan idea of Nimrod’s, God Almighty was not well pleased: and so God destroyed it all by moving groups of people all around the globe; generating racial characteristics and changing their one language into a multitude of languages.
But now mankind has finally come full circle, and is again attempting to consolidate all political, religious and economic power, into a One-World full scale global model. Then ultimately they will have their Antichrist – the King of Despots as the political/financial dictator, and the False Prophet as the religious dictator - in control of it all.
Mankind now finds himself picking up history at Genesis chapter 11, and this time again, God is going to destroy it. But this time at what is known as: the Battle of Armageddon.
Revelation 16:16 -- "And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon".
Also, the religious root of the Roman Catholic Church can be traced back to the Ancient Babylonian religion. A great book to follow-up on this would be, ‘The Two Babylons’ by Alexander Hislop.
So to put it succinctly: You need to have a thorough understanding of the Bible on the one hand, and a general knowledge of the occult on the other, to truly understand End-Time Bible prophecy and the nearly here, One World Order and its Antichrist and False Prophet.
The religion of the Antichrist is black magick witchcraft. In the Book of Daniel 8:23 it states, "… a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up". Then verse 25 - "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand…". In the occult they have always called their religion, the Craft (short for witchcraft). Then turn over to Revelation 13:4 - "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…". Then Revelation 9:21 - "Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries…".
I want to state that Lucifer and Satan are one in the same, though most occult 'denominations' only recognize one name, most times to the exclusion of the other; but this is the creature that directs all the madness in opposition to the God of the Bible, whose direct followers are of the Luciferian religion.
In Luciferian doctrine they maintain that Lucifer led a revolt in Heaven. They also assert that Lucifer is the oldest son of Adonai (God) and that he has a brother Michael, which is an Archangel. They then hold that it was Michael, who was the one responsible for defeating the Luciferian conspiracy in Heaven. After this, they claim that Michael came to this Earth as the person of Jesus Christ; to vanquish Lucifer, his followers, and his teachings… but failed.
Therefore, those of the Luciferian religion do not recognize any entity by the name of Satan. But when pressed, they will insist that if there is a devil or Satan, that it would be Adonai. Their Adonai, is who we Bible believers know as: God the Father.
Luciferians also have the view that whoever has the most powerful armies at the Battle of Armageddon, will win; whom they are convinced will be them.
We need to fully understand that our warfare is not against mankind, but that it is spiritual warfare - always. The Apostle Paul states this very clearly - "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" - Ephesians 6:12.
Many people will loudly object to a large-scale conspiracy, by protesting that a world-wide collusion of world leaders would get exposed to the public; that a plot of this magnitude could not possibly be kept secret !
Let us side-step for a moment, the fact that there are books and articles out there exposing the evidence of this global conspiracy; and let me bring to rememberance a huge conspiracy that was kept completely secret: until after the fact -
The Manhattan Project: Beginning in 1939, the U.S. government invested billions of dollars and employed 120,000 people with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada; to develop and build the first nuclear bomb.
At first research was based at: Columbia University, University of Chicago and the University of California at Berkeley. Then nuclear facilities were built at Hanford, Washington; Oak Ridge, Tennessee; and the main one at Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Secrecy was supremely paramount !
The Nuclear Age began on July 16, 1945 when an 100-ton nuclear bomb was detonated in the New Mexico desert.
But... the public, Germany and especially Japan never knew anything about it... until Nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan on August 6th and 9th of 1945.
Therefore the Manhattan Project, which changed the course of warfare forever, was kept completely secret from the World for over 6 years!
Now think about it a moment, if these secret societies were so laughable -- as some would have you to believe -- then why, over the centuries have they attracted some of the most brilliant minds and prominent industrialists, financiers, scientists, educators and (dare we forget) politicians?
The answers must lie in the inner teachings of these societies, which are seldom discussed in public and almost never in the corporate media (msm), which they have in their hip pocket:
David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in his opening address at their meeting in June, 1991 -
"We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings, and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subjected to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated, and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries".
In order to establish how deep these societies have permeated international politics, it is necessary to understand how these hidden power groups have molded the history of the 20th century. These groups are not aligned to either the left wing or right wing of politics, in fact they fund both power structures. Why do they bank-roll both camps? One reason is: to gain control you have to have two sides struggling or fighting against each other, and then, with you controlling both sides you can determine which way it all goes.
Almost all major events in recent history employ the Hegelian Dialectic of:
Problem – manufacture a crisis or take advantage of one already in place in order to get the desired Reaction of public outcry whereby the public demands a Solution which has been predetermined from the beginning. Utilizing the media at every step.
This is why the power elite gained control of the Democrat and Republican parties and repudiate any challenge to this status-quo. In this way they can sophisticate the process of: Problem – Reaction – Solution, by following a jagged path from point A to point B, so as to hide the actual objective and confuse the public.
This is how they move society in the direction that they want it to go. This is also why, that when a 3rd political party starts to show any power in the U.S. that the Republicans and Democrats unite to eliminate it.
They also operate within both capitalistic and communistic systems and have as their ultimate goal, a political-spiritual vision, which transcends all materialistic systems.
Interpretation of their activities must usually be confined to an analysis of the outward signs of their influence, within the overall pattern of international politics.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, a 32nd degree Mason, Shriner, and Rosicrucian, who saw many monumental events occur during his 3-terms as President, has been quoted as saying, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way".
There have been a very few who have come out of these organizations -- usually by way of Salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ -- and have written a book here or there and there are also books that members of these organizations have written, to communicate with each other. That is, if you know which ones they are and where to find them. Also, there have been dedicated people who have done extensive research on various aspects of these groups.
But the sad reality is: that there are an infinite number of books filled with mis-information and dis-information. The ones with dis-information are the ones that were written to intentionally mis-lead you and to disseminate confusion. A few of these books are written by one or more of their members masquerading as a Christian author.
At times they will create a forged or fraudulent work condemning what they want to protect, so that the discovery of the forger or fraud will cause people to disregard both the source and the now discredited content – though it may still be true.
These occult organizations also control all the Mega-churches and most all of the Bible colleges and institutes. How else do you think Satan brought about this Age of Apostasy?!
Example 1: Senator Strom Thurmond a 33rd degree Freemason and Adept, along with other Masons have controlled Bob Jones University for decades, sitting on its Board of Directors and among its staff. Now you know why politicians frequent the place… they feel comfortable there. Also, Dr. Bob Jones 3rd, who is involved with the University of Notre Dame (Catholic), is also a member of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon sponsored organization: Council of National Policy, which was founded by Tim LaHaye in 1981.
In addition, from its inception in 1927 till the 1960's, Dr. Bob Jones’s policies would not allow ‘blacks’ on his campus. Some of God’s people – Black Christians – were not ‘good enough’ to set foot on Dr. Bob’s property! BUT, when the federal government decided to take some of Dr. Bob’s money, by pulling his tax-exempt status for his racist practices, Dr. Bob hired a Catholic law firm to defend his unbiblical racist abominations. When all was lost and he realized how much money he would lose, Dr. Bob reluctantly relented. Christ’s admonition to "love the brethren" can always be explained away by men full of pride and arrogance, along with other Biblical admonitions, by way of their 'educated' discriminations.
Bob Jones University's 'Hallmark' has always been in my experience, setting Christians at variance, one against another, from what I have seen -- by straining at gnats and swallowing camels. They get Christians fighting against Christians, instead of using their energies to win the lost of this world.
Example 2: CROWNE CENTRE at Pensacola Christian College, built in 2002. It has 4 - three-dimensional 'lighted' obelisks (standing image: forbidden in Micah 5:12-13 and Leviticus 26:1) out in front of this building. The facade of the building itself is distinguished by 3 - two-dimensional glass obelisks, making it in appearance as: the CROWNE of BAAL. Obelisks are symbols that were used by the worshippers of Baal originally, nowadays all occult denominations use the symbol. This one building cost over 75 million dollars as the last of 300 million dollars in projects at this compound - a HUGE waste of money(!). Just think of how many missionaries could have been sent, churches built, ministries developed, Bibles, books, and videos given away?! But ungodly carnal men 'will spare no expense' at glorifying themselves.
SO... just where do they get all their millions of dollars to waste?! It obviously is not by way of the true Lord God of the Bible.
Then a search of their library in 2004 (it was very similar to Bob Jones), turned up one book against Mormonism, but none against Catholicism, the New Age, the Occult or Secret Societies. WHY I ask! But they did have their library loaded with questionable books by questionable authors. Then they have sections of books by and about JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, which books until recently you could not get in any Christian bookstore, but for decades have been staples in Occult bookstores; because they are required reading by the serious covens.
(Bible colleges do defraud Christians who come to their compounds to learn the Bible, out of tens of thousands of dollars each; they so over-charge that they then have such vast amounts, that they lavish it on themselves to glorify themselves... and then raise tuition, while claiming they are striving to keep costs down).
Example 3: Probably the most blatant example of pagans de-constructing the course of Christianity in these End-Times, is a man by the name of Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, B.A., B.D., M.A., Th.M., Ph.D. He is President of Pensacola Bible Institute and the Reverence of Bible Baptist Church, Pensacola, Florida.
So what magnanimous insights can this self-proclaimed - ultra giant of the faith, give to us in these last days?
Let us begin at the Resurrection of Believers. This man claims that God, at the moment of the resurrection puts women through a trans-sexual process, whereby females become, now get this… sexual males!
Dr. Ruckman states in his 'Genesis' commentary; reprint 1995 from 1969 original…
"Although the woman… she will be male in the first resurrection (see commentary on Matthew, Matt. 22:30)" - page 70.
So, going now to Ruckman's 'Matthew' commentary; reprint 2000 from 1970 original, we find…
"Every saved woman has a MAN inside her... At the resurrection, this MAN conforms the person, in whom He dwells, into His own image, and bodily shape and form... This bodily shape and form is a 33-year-old MALE" - page 582. (All emphasis are Dr. Ruckman's)
Yes, angels are described as men in the Bible because they look masculine. But never are angels described as males. The words man and male are not the same, male is a sexually explicit term and the Bible uses both, the King James Bible is a very specific book! Just for point of reference - a woman can look like a man (cut of hair, style of clothes, body builder) but never can a woman look like a male!
Now going back to Ruckman's 'Genesis' commentary, we find on pages 298-299, these statements:
"God becomes the author of racial discrimination… God's 'plan' for 'peace on earth, goodwill to men' is segregation".
Also, on pages 168 and 197, Dr. Ruckman tells two N-jokes.
Then on page 108, we find this statement:
"…but the only question about the colored race is who gets to run them? When they run themselves they wind up starving and eventually eating each other. They will serve no matter who says what".
Turning to Ruckman's book, 'Segregation or Integration?' reprinted in 1994 from 1962 original, we find:
"God has spoken, plainly, flatly, authoritatively, and finally on the matter of Segregation and Integration. A man who refuses to recognize this, may be a professing Christian… but a born-again Bible-believer he most certainly is not" - page 33.
Then on page 41, we find:
"… and you may as well face up to it: there isn't any such thing as a Bible-believing Christian who believes in racial integration".
So, is Dr. Ruckman claiming Salvation requires racial segregation(?) or that you can lose Salvation by racial integration?! Inquiring minds need to know!
Racial hatred is one of the oldest sins of mankind(!) - It directly involves pride and arrogance! Also, Dr. Ruckman graduated from Bob Jones University with M.A. and Ph.D. degree in 1953, and you can see the similarity in personal philosophies.
Proverbs 8:13, "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate". And Proverbs 16:5, "Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished".
Moving on to his book, 'Ruckman's Bible References' published in 1997, we find on page 33:
In reference to Leviticus 20:13 which reads - "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them”.
Dr. Ruckman states, "Leviticus 20:13 - Note that David could not have anyone executed because if he got what he had earned, he would have been executed”.
So here we have Dr. Ruckman goose-stepping with the Liberals, Modernists and Pagans, insinuating David to be homosexual!
I have heard many of Ruckman's disciples/dupes declare - "Ruckman is the greatest mind the world has ever known!". Also, "He's the only man who has ever understood prophecy".
We have used Dr. Ruckman as an example of the false teachers that are out there, but he is only one of thousands who are out to corrupt believers in the Word of God by adulterating the doctrines of the Bible. He is a wolf in a bargain bin sheep costume, but there are those who have finely tailored sheep attire, who can be difficult to spot.
We live in a world semi-controlled by unseen forces that have plagued and manipulated humanity for 6,000 years, and they are now taking near total control.
It cannot be denied, for in the Bible, Satan is called...
The World's attitudes and values are almost sufficiently anti-Christian and occultic to allow Antichrist to arise! The Church's attitudes and values are sufficiently anti-Bible and New Age to allow Antichrist to arise!
The next item that we will discuss to help understand End-Time prophecy is the paragraph marks, formally named: pilcrows. Unfortunately many Bible publishers did not print them.
But at any rate, when you see a paragraph marker, it means that the previous thought(s) or group of thoughts has completed, and that a new thought or statement is beginning. Do not continue a thought through a paragraph marker. To put it into other words: the train of thought changes rails at the pilcrow.
It is amazing all the Theological Doctors who have not figured this basic fact out, and then rebel against it when brought to their attention (these prideful chaps would then have to admit they erred -- can’t have that!) This is especially important to understanding Matthew chapter 24, Mark chapter 13, Luke chapter 21, Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 and also Genesis chapter 1.
Just so you know, all pilcrows cease at Acts chapter 21. Why? No one knows.
Likewise, carefully watch for colons, semi-colons, and periods. When studying your Bible, remember to not assume that at the end of a verse there is a period. Bible study involves being cautious with each word, careful to research the context, be detail oriented, and especially have your heart and mind opened and focused on the Holy Spirit within you.
The next item up to bat: A prophecy in the Old Testament always has a double fulfillment. It’s either, near-present and future -or- its future and farther future to the time it is stated -or- part of it is fulfilled at one time and the rest at another time to complete it.
The next item is the words - ‘like’ and ‘as’ or ‘like as’ -- these words are comparing something to something else to give a clearer picture; many people new to Bible study miss this. Also, you can never get a proper handle on Bible study with anything but an Authorized King James Bible! For only in the King James Bible can you do word studies, and also the ‘types’ are missing in the other versions in various degrees.
The next items are the phrases: "that day", "in that day", "in the latter days", "the day of the Lord", "in those days", "in the last end", "the time of the end". These previous phrases are referring the prophecy to the End-Times, or sometime near.
There are many more subjects we could discuss and loads of examples, but we’ll leave it here on this article - Thanks for reading, hope we helped in your understanding of End-Times prophecy!
Our prayer to you is...
