The Pitfalls of Chrislam

Islam teaches that Jesus is NOT the Son of God. Since Jesus made himself equal with God and was crucified for taking that unapologetic stand, it is reasonable to conclude that Muslims DO NOT worship the same God as followers of Jesus Christ. Allah IS NOT YAHWEH, and well-meaning Christians who take a stand in favor of Islamic religion are playing into what will one day manifest as global religion, foretold in Revelation 13.

The Pitfalls Of Chrislam – Christian Women Take Up the Hijab

News Image

BY TOM OLAGO

MAY 10, 2016

Is it OK for a Christian to wear a hijab (Islamic headscarf for women), or show solidarity with Muslims in other ways considered spiritually related? Are Muslims and Christians serving and worshiping the same God?

These and other related questions continue to be in the forefront of religious debates that focus on doctrines and practices that seek to merge Islam and Christianity into ‘Chrislam’ a hybrid of both faiths with which, it is hoped, both Muslims and Christians will be comfortable. 

 

It is also noteworthy that it is professing Christians who, for the most part, are making the necessary compromises for this ‘Chrislam’ union to be possible.

 

One development that has drawn attention to this topic has been the wearing of the hijab by professing Christian women. One such case involved Martha DeVries, 47, who serves as a high school counselor and attends Chandler Baptist Church in Liberty, MO. Her husband, Mike, serves part-time as a youth pastor.

 

She said that not only does she have a common ancestry with Muslims, but that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book,” Hawkins asserted. “And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

 

Hawkins eventually left the college after controversy erupted, not about her hijab, but her assertion that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. This belief is widely rejected as unscriptural by many Christians such as Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor of Anacostia River Church in Washington, D.C. He noted that inasmuch as Muslims do not worship Jesus, Who is God, Christians and Muslims, therefore, do not worship the same God.

 

“No one knows God who does not know the Son, who is the only mediator between God and man,” Anyabwile said. “The goal of Christianity is the salvation of sinners through the righteousness, substitutionary atonement, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”

 

With further reference to Hawkins, James Hoffmeier wrote last December for the gospelcoalition.org: “… With such blatant persecution of Christians in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa by various Islamic jihadists, it’s perplexing that Hawkins would seek to draw attention to and identify with Muslims instead of the Christians whose suffering far surpasses any alienation Muslims might feel in America.

Further, an Egyptian anthropologist who is a professor in America said:

“If [Hawkins] is concerned about the cause of the oppressed, there are many Christian and non-Christian organizations she can join that are really bringing change to people’s lives. Many such organizations are working with Middle Eastern refugees at different campsites. Our focus should be on such groups–Yazidis, Christians, Alawites, and moderate Muslims–who are experiencing genocide…”

 

… Is this pro-hijab push a new trend with Christian women? Hardly. Late 2014, dailymail.co.uk reported the case of Kate Leaney, 27, a committed Christian from Adelaide Australia who had been wearing a hijab every day in an act of ‘love and solidarity’ with her many Muslim friends.

 

… The authors of the washingtonpost.com article, Asra Q. Nomani and Hala Arafa further stated: “We reject this interpretation that the “hijab” is merely a symbol of modesty and dignity adopted by faithful female followers of Islam…This conflation of hijab with the secular word ‘headscarf’ is misleading. “Hijab” literally means, “curtain” in Arabic. It also means “hiding”, “obstructing” and “isolating” someone or something. It is never used in the Koran to mean headscarf...No matter what formula you use, “hijab” never means headscarf.  The media must stop spreading this misleading interpretation”.

 

They then proceed to clarify in disturbing terms their assessment of the true meaning of the hijab: “To us, the hijab is a symbol of an interpretation of Islam we reject that believes that women are a sexual distraction to men, who are weak, and thus must not be tempted by the sight of our hair. We don’t buy it. This ideology promotes a social attitude that absolves men of sexually harassing women and puts the onus on the victim to protect herself by covering up“.

 

Their advice to Christian women? “Please do this instead: Do not wear a headscarf in “solidarity” with the ideology that most silences us, equating our bodies with “honor.” Stand with us instead with moral courage against the ideology of Islamism that demands we cover our hair“.

 

An article published in December 2015 by patheos.com also examined what it means to wear the hijab.  Its author, ‘Jane the Actuary’ concluded: “Here’s the bottom line:  wearing hijab is a religious act….In other words, hijab-wearing is, in America, a  form of religious identification, a way to show the outside world that you are Muslim.  It’s a way to take on a religious practice, to commit yourself to greater devotion even at a cost — in which the actual practice doesn’t matter so much as the intention that, in doing so, one commits oneself to God more fully…But the bottom line is this:  given what hijab is fundamentally about, is it appropriate for a Christian to wear it?”

 

… “To me, there are two things troubling here,” said Shahram Hadian, who grew up Muslim in Iran and emigrated to Canada before moving to Washington state and becoming an evangelical Christian pastor.

 

Hadian said the Muslim Students Association (MSA) indoctrination campaign has been rampant on college campuses for years but now it is mobilizing in U.S. high schools as well. At Boise State University, for example, the MSA holds an Islamic Week every year and for an entire day during that week, they encourage every woman on campus to wear the hijab.

 

“But the troubling thing is this:  how is MSA now getting access to our high schools? And number two: how is that not the state promoting a religion?” Hadian said of the Chicago event. 

 

Would the high school, for instance, allow a Christian student group to encourage non-Christian students to wear crosses for a day? Or what about a Jewish group encouraging Muslims to wear the Star of David?

 

“It’s just hypocrisy at its pinnacle,” Hadian said. But the Muslim Brotherhood is very clever in the use of propaganda, he said, and apparently the atheist lawyers at the ACLU have given the MSA a pass.

 

Dr. Mark Christian, a former child-imam who grew up in Egypt and now lives as a Christian in Nebraska, said Western cultures are making a huge mistake by embracing a key element of Shariah.

 

“At a time when a rising number of Muslim women in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, are taking off their hijab for good, liberating themselves from its symbolism of enslavement and inequality and from being labeled as radical Muslims in the wake of the Arab Spring and the reality of radical Islam that it brought in the Middle East, and at a time when many Muslim women are trying to find their freedom and advocating for the freedom of their fellow Muslim women, I find it treasonous that in America liberals are resorting to such actions, encouraging hijab and enslavement of women and labeling them as a sex objects,” said Christian, who heads up the Global Faith Institute.

“When those in the West advocate for hijab, they are not siding with the peaceful Muslims but with the radicals,” he said. “They are not advocating freedom but enabling and encouraging torture, inequality and the inhumane treatment of women in Islam.”

John detailed this vision in the Revelation of Jesus Christ, which features global religion being forced upon the inhabitants of earth:

11 “Then I saw a second beast [the false prophet], coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast [the Antichrist], whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 15 The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

In other words, a global ruler (Revelation 13:1-8) will be “given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation” (Revelation 13:7). A “false prophet” (Revelation 19:20) will address the inhabitants of the earth and, somehow, FORCE people to worship an image of the Antichrist OR BE KILLED.

  *   *   *

All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—

all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life,

 the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

Whoever has ears, let them hear.

‘If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. 

If anyone is to be killed with the sword, 

with the sword they will be killed.’

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God’s people.”

(Revelation 13:8-10, NIV)

Arch of Temple of Baal CANCELLED for NYC and London!

Temple Of Baal Arch Planned For New York City Has Been CANCELED

 

News Image

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream Blog

April 12, 2016

The Temple of Baal is NOT coming to Times Square in New York City next month.  This is great news, and it represents an incredible victory for Christians in the United States.

As you will see below, the New York Times, Snopes and a whole host of other mainstream news sources reported last month that everything was on track for reproductions of the giant 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria to be put up simultaneously in Times Square in New York City and Trafalgar Square in London during the month of April.

 

But now that will not be happening.  The only arch that will be going up will be in Trafalgar Square, and it wont be the one from the Temple of Baal.  Instead, the Institute for Digital Archaeology has changed plans and will be putting up a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph which the Romans originally built in Palmyra and that has nothing to do with Baal.

 

So why has there been such a dramatic change in plans?

 

On Friday, I received an urgent message from a contact that has been investigating this, and she told me that she had talked directly to someone from the Institute for Digital Archaeology and that she had been informed that no arch was going up in New York during the month of April.

 

I pressed her for confirmation, because every mainstream source that I could find said that the arch from the Temple of Baal was indeed going up next month.  So her information would definitely change everything, but I needed to be able to confirm this.

 

Well, confirmation came in the form of an article from the Telegraph, which is one of the most important news sources in the United Kingdom.  On Friday, they reported that the original plan to put up the arch from the Temple of Baal in New York and London simultaneously had been scrapped…

Temple of Baal arch coming to NYC …

The Temple Of Baal Coming To New York Will Be Followed By Hundreds More

News Image

BY MICHAEL SNYDER/END OF THE AMERICAN DREAM

MARCH 28, 2016

The reproductions of the 50 foot arch that stood at the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria that will be erected in New York City and London next month will only be the first of many.  

As you will see below, it turns out that there are plans to put arches in hundreds more cities all over the globe.  The organization behind this is the Institute of Digital Archaeology, which is a joint venture between Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubais Museum of the Future.

 

The initial arches from the Temple of Baal that will be erected in New York and London as part of UNESCOs World Heritage Week in April are intended as a gesture of defiance, but ultimately the plan is to share this cultural treasure with as many cities around the planet as possible.

If you go to Times Square in New York or Trafalgar Square in London late next month, you will not be able to miss these giant arches.  According to the New York Post, they will be 48 feet high and 23 feet wide…

 

The life-size model of the original 2,000-year-old structure, known as the Arch of the Temple of Bel, will stand approximately 48 feet high and 23 feet wide.
 

 

It will be one of two constructed in China for exhibition likely in Times Square and Londons Trafalgar Square as part of a World Heritage Week event in April 2016, said Roger Michel, executive director for the Institute for Digital Archaeology.

 

I suppose that it is appropriate that these giant arches are going to be made in China, because it seems like almost everyone is being made over there these days.

 

But these are not the only two giant arches that are going to be made.  That same article from the New York Post says that the Institute for Digital Archaeology ultimately hopes to put 1,000 of these arches in cities all over the globe…

 

The institute plans to construct approximately 1,000 such versions of the arch in cities throughout the world.

 

If you are anything like me, this is an extremely disturbing development.  Baal worship is definitely not something that we should be celebrating as a society.  There were very good reasons why the God of the Bible found it so incredibly repulsive.  The following description of what went on during Baal worship comes from Scott Brown…

 

We know that there were usually lots of people gathered, often on a high hill (like a theatre or stadium) to observe public sex,  just like we see in movies and television and on the internet (Numbers 22:41, I Kings 12:25-33). We think that our watching these things is different than the idolatry of old, but this is not so.
 

 

The whole community came out and all of the best pagan ideas for success in crops and fertility were promoted, just like a business seminar that promotes unbiblical ideas that justify the worldliness of its origin.
 

 

The wicked personalities (promoters and performers) were respected and given the platform (like rock stars and Hollywoods People.) Some of them were great dancers (like Brittany Spears and Madonna) while others were great musicians (like Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney) (I Kings 15:12-14). In our day, people who go to our churches celebrate celebrities when they should be doing the opposite. Psalm 101:1, 3 says, “I will walk in my house … I will set no wicked thing before my eyes.”
 
People danced around the Asherah pole, which was nothing more than a phallic symbol. It is quite possible that these poles functioned somewhat like the poles in what are called, gentlemens clubs. The people also acted out lustful, licentious, bawdy scenes for the enjoyment of all who came (Isaiah 57:5-8; Deuteronomy 23:17).  They had all the different kinds of sexual experiences on display including men with women, men with men and all of the combinations that are popular today in sit-coms, movies and news reports. On top of that, they invited the crowd to participate (I Kings 14:24).

 

In addition to everything that you just read, child sacrifice was a central feature of Baal worship.  This is what Jeremiah 19:4-6 says…
4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
 

 

5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:
 

 

6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.

 

We like to think that we are so much more advanced than people back then, but are we really?

 

Just like ancient Baal worshippers, we are a society that is addicted to watching other people have sex.  In fact, it has been estimated that 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.

 

And just like ancient Baal worshippers, we are a society that is engaged in child sacrifice.  We call it abortion, but the motives are still the same.  If an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy comes along, we have a mechanism for getting rid of it just like they did.

 

Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, we have slaughtered more than 58 million of our own children.  I would venture to say that the ancient Baal worshippers never got quite that much blood on their own hands.

 

On one level, I find it quite ironic that a reproduction of part of the Temple of Baal is going up in Times Square.  David Wilkerson once preached a message entitled “Tearing Down The Altars Of Baal” at Times Square Church, and now a monument to Baal is actually being erected in Times Square.

Many people regard America as modern day Babylon, and now we are going to have a monument that directly links us to ancient Babylon right in the heart of our most important city.

To me, this is one of the most important news stories of 2016 so far.

“After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel.

Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them.

They aroused the Lord’s anger because they forsook him and served Baal and the Ashtoreths.  In his anger against Israel the Lord gave them into the hands of raiders who plundered them. He sold them into the hands of their enemies all around, whom they were no longer able to resist. Whenever Israel went out to fight, the hand of the Lord was against them to defeat them, just as he had sworn to them. They were in great distress.”

Pope Francis and “Chrislam”

Pope Francis Embraces Chrislam And Lays A Foundation For A One World Religion

September 29, 2015   

End Of The American Dream Blog / Michael Snyder

(Emphasis is mine. — PY)

Remarks made by Pope Francis at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan have sparked a firestorm of criticism from those that do not believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.

Many have taken the Pope’s remarks as a major step in the direction of a one world religion, and the truth is that the Pope has made other such statements in the past.

In recent years, the theory that Christianity and Islam are just two distinct paths to God among many others has rapidly gained traction all over the planet. Some religious leaders have even gone so far as to try to merge Islamic and Christian practices, and the term “Chrislam” is now often used to describe this ecumenical movement. 

If all this sounds incredibly strange to you, just keep reading, because this is just the tip of the iceberg.

What Pope Francis had to say at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan has received very little coverage by the mainstream media, but it was exceedingly significant. The following is how he began his address…

“I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca.

“In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.”

He did not choose those words by accident. In Islam, Allah is known as “the all-merciful one”. 

And this is not the first time Pope Francis has used such language. For instance, the following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope…

“I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.

Pope Francis clearly believes that Christians and Muslims worship the exact same God. And so that helps to explain why he authorized “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever back in 2014.

Catholicism and Islam are the two largest religions on the entire planet, and so any one world religion would need to incorporate both of those belief systems. Sadly, this Pope seems to be quite eager to lay the groundwork for such a one world religion.

Pope Francis made another statement at St. Patrick’s Cathedral that has shocked believers all over the planet. Apparently this Pope seems to think that the cross was a “failure”

“The cross shows us a different way of measuring success. Ours is to plant the seeds. God sees to the fruits of our labors. And if at times our efforts and works seem to fail and not produce fruit, we need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.”

After he made that statement, he didn’t continue to go on and explain that the cross was ultimately a great victory. He just ended his thought and moved on to other topics.

Needless to say, many are extremely upset by this. The following comes from Leo Zagami of Infowars.com…

These words have of course outraged most true Christians around the world who cannot imagine Christianity without the value of the cross, which symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus for mankind. It’s impossible for a Christian of any denomination to imagine the very essence of their faith being discussed in this way, let alone by the Pope. The fact that blood was shed on the cross by Jesus for the ultimate self-sacrifice that could help rid mankind of all sins is one of those essentials of the Faith that should never be questioned.

The mainstream media persists with their undying affection for Pope Francis, never commenting on this outrageous statement.

But even though the Pope is saying things like this, his legend just seems to grow by the day. Even in the United States, throngs of faithful devotees are treating him like he is some sort of supernatural being…

Everywhere he goes, Pope Francis attracts worshipful crowds of people, straining and reaching to touch any part of him as if something spiritual and holy could be imparted to them by doing so. People weep, they cry, they hold up their sick children and beg him to touch them in the hopes they will be healed.

And this is even true of members of Congress. Just check out the behavior that some of them have displayed…

Representative Bob Brady, a devout Catholic and Democrat from Pennsylvania immediately made his way to the podium after Pope Francis finished speaking and grabbed the glass that was still filled with water. He then drank the water, gave some of the water to his wife Debra, and saved the rest for his grandchildren. Representative Brady took photos as well, and had his staff send them out to the press. He also shared some of the water with members of his staff and assistant, also a devout Catholic. As for the saved water, he plans to sprinkle it on his grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

I don’t know about you, but major alarm bells start going off for me when I read stuff like this.

We are witnessing the initial stages of the rise of a one world religion, and much of the planet is ultimately going to embrace it.

“The dragon [Satan] stood on the shore of the sea.

And I saw a beast coming out of the sea…. 

People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast,

and they also worshiped the beast and asked,

‘Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?’…

Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. 

It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.

It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, 

and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast

Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast,

it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. 

It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast …

The second beast was given power

to give breath to the image of the first beast …

and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.

It also forced all people,

great and small, rich and poor, free and slave,

to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,

so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, 

which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

(Revelation 13:1-17, NIV)

  *   *   *

“But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.”

(Revelation 19:20, NIV)

Keep watching and paying attention to details …

Watching for the seven-year covenant …

I want to share a commentary by L.A. Marzulli that addresses the recent visit to Israel of Pope Francis and his meeting with the presidents of Israel and the Palestinians. But first let’s look at the related prophecies in Daniel 9:20-27 …

 

“While I [Daniel] was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the Lord my God for his holy hill— while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. He instructed me and said to me, ‘Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision:”  …

 

The first part of Gabriel’s prophecy has been interpreted in many ways by various scholars and teachers, so I will let you look into verses 24 and 25 as you feel led. Let’s skip to verse 26 …

 

“… the Anointed One [Jesus] will be put to death and will have nothing. [This was accomplished at the crucifixion.] The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary [70  AD – Jerusalem and the Jewish temple were destroyed by Titus and his Roman legions]. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed.” [Wars have continued since that time. Waiting for the “desolation” that is to come when the temple is rebuilt.]

 

Verse 27:  He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven’ [seven ‘weeks’ or years]. In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”

Notice this about verse 27: Jesus referred to this prophecy and the “abomination that causes desolation” in Matthew 24:15-16  — [Jesus speaking] So when you see standing in the holy place [the temple] ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.”

 

In other words, a time is yet to come when “he” will “confirm a covenant with many.” This covenant will be initiated with a seven-year deadline, and according to this prophecy, THE TEMPLE (which the Jews believe is necessary for their sacrifices and offerings to be made acceptable to the Lord God) will be rebuilt by the half-way point in the covenant. Many believe this will be a covenant of peace.

Now read L.A. Marzulli’s thoughts …

The Coming One World Religion?

Commentary & Analysis

L.A. Marzulli

http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/08/world/europe/pope-abbas-peres/q

“In this, the birthplace of the Prince of Peace” the Pope said in Bethlehem’s Manger Square following a May 25 Mass, ” I wish to invite you, President Mahmoud Abbas, together with President Shimon Peres, to join me in heartfelt prayer to God for the gift of peace.”

We know from scripture that at the time of the end there will be a one world religion.  Think about it, until modernity it was impossible to accomplish this.  Now, with the tele-communications and satellite network in place, it’s no longer a pipe dream.

Prophecy tells us that at the time of end Jerusalem will be a cup of trembling.  Take a good look at the picture above.  The Pope, Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, and Simon Peres President of Israel are gathered together.  What is  being discussed is land for peace, with Jerusalem as the prize.  The Israeli’s claim Jerusalem as their capital and so do the Palestinians.  Take a good look at this interview from Egypt’s now-defunct Muslim Brotherhood, where the Imam Highazi is proclaiming Jerusalem will be the capital of the United Arab States:

http://www.jewishpress.com/news/israel/muslim-brotherhood-launches-presidential-campaign-the-capital-of-the-united-states-of-the-arabs-will-be-jerusalem/2012/05/10/

It seems clear to me this is the objective of clerics like Highazi and others in the Muslim world. So how can there be peace when HAMAS and Hezbollah and radical clerics like Highazi want the destruction of the Jewish state?

Enter Pope Francis who invited Abbas and Peres to the Vatican for a garden chat.  It makes great press and the story went viral.  However, Francis has stated that Muslims worship the one true god.  http://www.infowars.com/pope-francis-and-the-emerging-one-world-religion/

I have a major red flag here, and thus am very suspect of anything else the man has to say.  Since Luther nailed his thesis to the door of the Wittenberg Church hundreds of years ago, there has been a split between the Catholic Church and the Protestant Reformers.   The history of the Catholic church is a sad tale of avarice and corruption and with all due respect to Catholics, The Catholic Church instigated the Crusades, and the Inquisition, both of which are black marks upon the church and have nothing to do with the Jesus of the Bible.

Then there’s the rape of South America, by the Spanish conquistadors, all for the lust of gold.  What happened to the native populations in the name of Christianity is another sad, black mark on Christendom.  It has nothing to do with the Jesus I know…

Dave Hunt’s ground breaking book, A Woman Rides the Beast, makes a case that the Catholic Church is the Harlot, described in the Book of Revelation.  These are strong words, but when we examine the text in Revelation and compare it to what the Catholic Church has done, over the centuries, it seems to make sense.  Is there any other organization that fits the description given to us in Revelation?

In closing todays post:  All of us want peace.  The Middle East and specifically the Israeli/Palestinian conflict must me tiresome after decades of strife.  However, this is precisely what the prophecy in the Bible warns us will happen in the last days.

The Pope may have the most noblest of intentions, or perhaps there is another agenda.  We know that the Vatican is positioning itself to embrace an alien saviour.  Cris Putnam and Tom Horns book, Exo-Vaticana, reveals this fact.

http://www.amazon.com/Exo-Vaticana-Romanus-L-U-C-I-F-E-R-Vaticans-Astonishing/dp/0984825630

The one organization that is poised to create a one-world religion, that would embrace ET, at the moment, is the Catholic Church.  I don’t believe there is any other religion that can fill those shoes.

When ET arrives—and I believe it may be soon—everything changes.  It is the point of no return and could it be that the Catholic Church will be there to pick up the pieces and bring everyone into the new one-world religion.

Out of all the religions on the planet, Rome is poised to fulfill this role.  She is wealthy, full of pomp and ceremony, has a form of religion, and is almost 2000 years old.  She is full of the traditions of men and the Pope meets with the heads of state from all the nations of the earth.

If you’re wondering about the reference to “ET” and the “alien savior,” I encourage you to search for more information about this fascinating researcher and his archeological findings regarding the “nephilim” mentioned in Genesis 6:1-4 and Numbers 13:31-33 — the men who were physical giants, seen by those who were sent out by Moses to search the Promised Land before the Israelites entered.

Controversy over David’s tomb

‘Handing Over David’s Tomb Rewrites History in Israel’

Deputy Minister writes stern letter to PM, warning him that handing David’s Tomb to the Vatican is a Palestinian Arab victory.

Deputy Transport Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) sent an urgent letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday, demanding that he prevent the rumored transfer of David’s Tomb to Catholic hands.

Hotovely’s letter surfaces following reports of an agreement between Israel and the Vatican which would transfer ownership of David’s Tomb on Mount Zion in Jerusalem to the Church.

Hotovely noted that the Tomb is a sacred place for the Jewish people – and warned the Prime Minister not to make the same mistakes made regarding the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, which is in the hands of the Jordanian Waqf.

“It is inconceivable that this place will be transferred to foreign hands, such the Torahs and the Star of David will be swallowed in a sea of crosses,” the Deputy Minister wrote.

”Transferring the rights to the gravesite of David to Christian hands would be similar to Moshe Dayan’s decision to entrust the keys to the Temple Mount to the Jordanian Waqf.”

Hotovely warned that David’s Tomb, like the Temple Mount, could become restricted to Jewish access and prayer – and has serious political and religious implications.

“David’s Tomb is also evidence of Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel,” she declared. “Handing over the grave of the great leaders of the ancient Jewish state, is in fact an agreement with the Palestinians – who rewrite history and challenge the legitimacy of the State of Israel.”

Concerns over a possible transfer of the property have been raised multiple times over the past several months. Earlier this month, an Israeli diplomatic source told Arutz Sheva that the Israeli government has no intention of transferring control over the site to the Church.

However, Rabbi Yaakov Sevilia, an activist for King David’s Tomb, told Arutz Sheva that there is a deal in the works – which would see David’s Tomb given to Christians, and the Temple Mount to Muslims. He cited journalist Gulio Meotti, who contributes regularly to Arutz Sheva, as the source for this knowledge.

“… the word of Adonai came to Natan: Go and tell my servant David that this is what Adonai says:

“… Moreover, Adonai tells you that Adonai will make you a house. 

When your days come to an end and you sleep with your ancestors,

I will establish one of your descendants to succeed you,

one of your own flesh and blood; and I will set up his rulership. 

 He will build a house for my name, and I will establish his royal throne forever….

 Thus your house and your kingdom will be made secure forever before you;

your throne will be set up forever.”‘”

(2 Samuel 7:11-16, The Complete Jewish Bible)

Then David slept with his ancestors and was buried in the City of David. 

David had ruled Isra’el for forty years — seven years in Hevron and thirty-three years in Yerushalayim [Jerusalem].

Shlomo [Solomon] sat on the throne of David his father; and his rule had become firmly established.” 

(1 Kings 2:10-12, The Complete Jewish Bible)
