Media using FAKE Christians to Weaken Their Resistance


UPDATED Headlines 03-18-19

It seems the main stream media is trying to get weak Christians around the world to follow the lead of a lukewarm Christian so as to help Rome enforce their mark in the very near future. Check this out.

North Korea prison camp survivor: 'Am I a Christian? Yes. I love Jesus. But I deny it'

 "North Korea took her name, stripped her clothes and shaved her hair. But there was one thing they couldn't take from "Prisoner 42": her faith in Jesus. …'Am I a Christian? Yes. I love Jesus. But I deny it'" – In an interview with Open Doors, "42" recounted how each morning when they would call for her, she would crawl out of a door flap — typically used for dogs or cats — and keep her head bowed low because she was not allowed to make eye contact with the guards. Then for an hour, they would ask her the same questions: "Why were you in China? Who did you meet? Did you go to church? Did you have a Bible? Did you meet any South Koreans? Are you a Christian?" She said she had to lie to stay alive. "Am I a Christian? Yes. I love Jesus. But I deny it. If I admit that I was helped by Chinese Christians, I will be killed, either quickly or slowly," she said." –Source

This woman claims she is a strong Christian, but in the same breath she denies Jesus to prevent being killed for her faith in the exact same way lukewarm Christians will do when the Guillotines are rolled out. Do not fall for her misunderstanding of how faith works brothers and sisters! Pray for her that she repents before the mark is enforced in her nation. Basic biblical reality is, if you deny Jesus Christ when standing before the guillotine you will forever seal your fate and receive the mark of the beast which will then cause you to die in hellfire! For Jesus clearly said in Matthew 16:25 that, "whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it."

In other words, when the powers that be demand you keep Sunday holy so as to worship the Pope when you know the true Sabbath is how you show worship to the Creator, if you bow to the Pope to save your mortal life, you will not receive eternal life. But if you let them kill your mortal body, the Lord will bless you with an eternal body that can never die. For Jesus also said in Matthew 10:28 that we should "fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." And He also said through his servant Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:54, "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory." The corruptible here is your mortal body and the incorruptible is the eternal body Christ gives to His obedient children.

Not only is this poor soul that feared to die for Jesus making all the hundreds of millions of Christians that died for their faith during the Vatican Inquisitions look as if they didn't have to die, and so we don't either; she is also being used by Satan to make weak Christians of today believe it's ok to deny Jesus when they are soon threatened with death. And the only reason this is happening now is because they need to cultivate as much doubt as possible in the hearts of billions because the long prophesied mark of the beast is soon to be enforced and they don't want to have to deal with people refusing to bow to the Pope in Rome.

Satan want's everyone in the world to bow to him so as to declare Jesus weak, which will only cause them all to die with him in hellfire as prophesied. As much as he hates Christians and loves to kill them, he would rather prefer they deny Christ. Plus one can't help see that with every Christian that dies for their faith the dying god of this world has one less soul in his camp when he surrounds the city of Heaven 1000 years from now. He knows his time is short and so he is gathering his troops for that prophetic day right now!

And so how do you rid yourself of this fear that is obviously being cultivated all over the world? Obedient Christian know and understand what Paul meant when he stated in 2 Timothy 1:7 that our "God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." When you accept Jesus as Saviour you will finally understand what perfect peace really means. And so if you're having issues with fear in any aspect of life, I implore you to accept Jesus Christ as your true Saviour and then all fear will be completely removed from your heart in a way that will truly amaze you. You will then understand how people could literally sing hymns unto Christ will standing in fire as Huss did when the Pope burned him at the stake. And for more truth regarding how fear will guarantee your place in hellfire, see this video when you get time.

Real Reason for Climate Change – JESUS IS COMING!

UPDATED News Articles 03-11-19


As students of prophecy we can look around and see it is time to fearlessly go forth to declare unto all that Jesus Christ our Lord is returning. All we see happening in nature confirms His soon arrival and the Pope knows this via his satanic agencies helping him to try and cover it all up. Have you seen some of the videos out there regarding all this?

The dying god of Rome is moving with all the power he can muster to push all sorts of confusion into the world to prevent the people from realizing what's actually happening on earth right before our eyes. All that we see is in fact the final signs before the mark is enforced and the plagues begin. Just as the mountain shook when the Lord descended upon it eons ago to present the law carved in stone unto the people, the entire planet is now convulsing because the return of Christ is nearing to take home those that have that very same law written upon the fleshly tables of their hearts.

I am also convinced that because the presence of God charred the top of Mount Sinai when He descended upon it, the Pope and his cronies have been moved by their confused minds to assume the closer Jesus gets to returning, the planet will warm up. But as usual he is only right to a point because Satan cannot allow absolute truth to be uttered. The fact is, the planet will most assuredly heat up during plague #4. And it is then he can use the global warming lie to gather the wicked in their final stance against the people of God. (See this video I did on that back in November of 2017 regarding this.)

As Satan moves ahead on his agenda he knows that many are waking up to the truth as it is written and they know the prophecies are true. The fact the people of God often try to warn those they love that Jesus is coming soon, and then are ignored, confirms the plagues are soon to  come. It also makes it easier for them to understand all those tornadoes in their dreams. This is what we all see when wide awake when sharing our faith t spiritually blinded people. Next to no one cares no matter how violent the world becomes in nature or via the hearts of men because the wolves refuse to preach the end is nigh and so their long prophesied message of peace and safety has lulled billions to sleep as expected.

And so, how does this apply to climate change or the global warming lies of Rome that literally tens of thousands of real scientists have exposed as bad science proving the Vatican's 100 scientists are on the payroll? The Pope and his followers are being moved by Satan to push the idea that the natural disasters are all due to mankind harming nature and we can somehow fix it. And this is besides the fact that we all know the water we drink today is the same water Adam and Eve drank 6000 years ago proving the Lord created the planet to regenerate and even recycle waste just as he created all the animals, birds, insects fish and even human beings to do. Satan knows this and he also knows all these calamities were prophesied by Christ as the harbinger to His return. Even his prophet Hosea spoke of the animals, birds, fish and insects dying right before Jesus returns. (See Hosea 4:3) It was also prophesied the earthquakes would increase and historic record confirms we have more earthquakes per week now than we did the last 6000 years prior to the end times starting in 1844. I can go on and on with this but my point is clear and simple.

The natural disasters, the wars and rumors of wars, legalization of homosexuality, the love of many waxing cold, suicides and even violence becoming the norm in everything from sports to movies are all part of society. The Bible says all these things are happening because Jesus Christ is coming a lot sooner than most realize and the Pope and his pawns don't want anyone to know that and so to cover up the fact that the Bible predicted all of what's happening in nature, society and even in politics right before the plagues come; the enemy of souls moved his subjects in the Vatican to invent global warming to calm the masses regarding Christ's second coming and their un-readiness to that end.

In fact, not too long ago the Pope of Rome declared that "the end is not yet nigh" to calm the people down just as prophecy predicted. And the only ones that will fall for the lies of peace and safety as per the many false prophets on the pulpits are those that refuse to study their Bibles or even accept Jesus Christ as their true Lord, King and Saviour. As prophesied, all the world wonders after the beast in Rome and his watered down version of Jesus. Their lack of faith which cultivates their deep seated fear as Satan planned, moves them to gladly accept the fake Jesus that will soon stand before them. This fake Jesus will have the qualities all the false pastors said their version of Jesus will have when he appears on earth in the coming days. And literally billions will worship him and receive his mark just as the real Jesus of the Bible prophesied they would.

SDA Tithe sent to Pope



What I am about to share here mostly speaks for itself and so I will let it do just that. When speaking of whether or not the General Conference sends money to the National Council of Churches, notice how they responded in a letter from back in 1967. Make special note of the last sentence wherein they say "…we do not make contributions to their [NCC] program."

If you read the entire letter you will see they seem to have no problem meeting with such people that the Word of God says we must never associate with. (See Amos 3:3, Proverbs 12:26, 1 Corinthians 15:33, 2 Corinthians 6:14,17, 2 Thessalonians 3:6,14 and James 4:4.)

In one statement in this letter they say "Seventh-day Adventists are not members of the National Council of Churches" but in the very next statement they say "We are cooperating members in certain areas." And then they move on as if they said or did nothing wrong. But from what I understand, the reason the letter was sent had to do with them funding the NCC with SDA funds. And as we just saw in the last sentence, they said they did not do that. And so, did the lie? Notice this.

In this letter it clearly says the SDA church does in fact have voting abilities which means they are members of the NCC proving they lied on one count. But did they lie on the second count? It also stated that in 1959, and by the way that's 8 years before they were asked about it in the previous letter from 1967, which means it was common knowledge by now in the GC, we see they did in fact send $6,700 to the NCC. And if you notice the NCC shows how they hid certain truths in the 1967 letter wherein they said they had non-voting associations with the NCC. But the NCC says yes, they had membership voting abilities in some areas and nonvoting abilities in other areas. Which means the letter sent in 1967 hid the fact that they did have voting membership in some areas.

Also notice this letter from 1970 from the NCC wherein they admit the SDA church "is a related agency cooperating in various communities. In fiscal year 1969 this body (the SDA church) contributed $5,950 to the DOM project." And so again we see they lied about using SDA money to fund projects of the Vatican inspired NCC. But it gets worse.

Now yes, some may say it's no big deal that the SDA church sends money to the NCC in America, which of course the Bible says otherwise. But in the same breath they will declare they would never do that with the World Council of Churches (WCC) wherein we all know the Pope was elected the leader of it on June 26, 2000 and just a few weeks ago the Pope moved every so called Christian denomination on earth, along with the Jews, Muslims and Buddhists to acknowledge on camera before all the world that the One World Church was in fact in power under the leadership of the Pope. And so that being said, was the SDA church ever asked if they were funding the WCC? And how did they respond?

Notice this letter from the GC SDA church from January 5, 1983 where they said "We have no financial relationship with this [WCC] organization. All of the funds that we as a Church receive…are disbursed entirely through our own denominational channels. We understand them to be contributed on the basis that we shall use them to maintain the various programs operated by our Church, including of course our various welfare programs… "So the brief answer to your inquiry is that we do not contribute any funds to this [WCC] organization." –Letter from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, January 5, 1983, from L.L. Butler, Treasurer.

Besides the fact they just lied about the money being sent to other denominations via the Pope's NCC which has all denominations in the USA under their roof, notice that in the Adventist review in 1985 that when speaking of the WCC they said "The Seventh-day Adventist Church…does not pay one cent in support of it." -Adventist Review, January 3, 1985, p 4.

And so again, was this true? Or did the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist church openly lie once again to hide their connection with the man of sin in Rome wherein they not only have membership with, they send the money donated by SDA church members? Notice this letter from June 13, 1985 from the SDA church wherein "They (the General Conference) have just informed me that our contributions to the World and National Council of churches last year totaled about $8,000.00. This is apparently what it has been running for the last few years."

In paragraph 3 they even go so far as to admit they believe it to be a benefit to be working with "well-placed churchpersons involved in church-state issues."

If you go to this page on my other website you will see many more claims by everyone from D.W. Hunter who was the Associate Secretary of the General Conference, to Bert Beach claiming they have no connection with the NCC or WCC years after it was revealed they actually did have connections with the Pope for many years. Yet we now know from the SDA Church's own letterhead as well as that of the letters from the NCC and WCC that the SDA church has had many connections in both the NCC and WCC for decades. Worse yet, they have been sending the money the SDA people give them to the Pope and his cohorts in both the NCC and WCC so that the long prophesied one world church has the financial means and so called spiritual support to come into existence globally just as prophecy predicted it would. And just a few weeks ago the Pope televised that prophesied event before the eyes of every religious leader on planet earth. The one world church is now here! And I am sad to report that the SDA church was instrumental in its coming into power.
