Roman Catholic IRS
Greetings in these last few hours of Earth's history. As many of you are aware, this ministry has been preaching for some time now that the ONE WORLD CHURCH of the Roman Beast was going to figure out a way to get ALL churches to go along with her Satanic agenda. I have shared numerous facts proving the prophecy of the Almighty is 100% certain in every respect. For those of you seeking a review of these particular facts, see these Newsletters:
For many years the elect have known of this satanic agenda. That is why this small gathering of faithful have become the target of Rome. Everything from proclaiming the only true Church of Jesus Christ on Earth a cult, to out and out death threats. You can review some of the facts here...
The Vat-of-sin in Rome has been solely responsible for allowing Satan to direct it's every move in the last day agenda we see unfolding before our very eyes. Everywhere you turn you see evidence of Rome "suggesting" to the Christian worlds its definition of Christian doctrine. Whenever you see a disaster reported on the News media you see the cameraman making special care to zoom in on those making the Roman sign of the cross of Baal upon their bodies. Priests appear on sitcom after sitcom as the norm for "Christian" suggestions in times of sadness as well as joy. Pagan Catholic rituals are honored by almost every person alive. The media as well as every Catholic alive uses the term "Holy father" when speaking of the Pope regardless of the fact that it is a blasphemous title. Jesus Himself used that term FOR HIS FATHER in John chapter 17. Christmas, Lent, Easter. Halloween as well as numerous other pagan high days are embraced by almost every Christian alive as the norm in celebration.
Fact is folks, this satanic agenda was manufactured for this end result we have all been awaiting. It is no longer considered un-Christ like when a so called Protestants embrace the teachings of the Vatican as true Christian doctrine. Why is this? Slowly but surely the Whore of Babylon has been chipping away at the hearts of all Christendom. We have all been so used to doing things our parents taught us, and their parents taught them that many of us just trust that it's safe Christian activities, practices, or doctrine. However, it is still possible to open a Bible and find the truth, and in so doing many do leave the errors of Rome. Yet again, we see the Roman Beast has covered that possibility as well. The Vatican has been instrumental in re-writing the Word of God to such an extent that we actually see history repeating itself in regards to the arrival of Messiah. We see the believers of this world looking to the return of Christ in the very same error filled manner the believers 2000 years ago did. What am I talking about?
Many of you that receive these newsletters are aware of my "Bogus Bible" page. In it you will see two major Bible versions exposed as altered. There are many more than just "two" versions altered. I just chose to expose the NIV and NASB on that page simply because of their popularity. All the people that read and trust these altered Bibles are allowing Satan to do to them that he did to the Pharisee's 2000 years ago. Back then, the Pharisee's misunderstood the prophecies of our Lord's arrival as Messiah. They thought Messiah was to arrive and take over the Roman Government and bring peace to the Jewish nation and rule on Earth from Jerusalem. This is the main reason Herod had all the babies killed that were born around the time Christ was born.
Matthew 2:16, "Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men."
I like the way Ellen White describes what went down that day. She says,
Soldiers were at once sent to Bethlehem, with orders to put to death all the children of two years and under. The quiet homes of the city of David witnessed those scenes of horror that, six hundred years before, had been opened to the prophet. "In Ramah was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not."
This calamity the Jews had brought upon themselves. If they had been walking in faithfulness and humility before God, He would in a signal manner have made the wrath of the king harmless to them. But they had separated themselves from God by their sins, and had rejected the Holy Spirit, which was their only shield. They had not studied the Scriptures with a desire to conform to the will of God. They had searched for prophecies which could be interpreted to exalt themselves, and to show how God despised all other nations. It was their proud boast that the Messiah was to come as a king, conquering His enemies, and treading down the heathen in His wrath. Thus they had excited the hatred of their rulers. Through their misrepresentation of Christ's mission, Satan had purposed to compass the destruction of the Saviour; but instead of this, it returned upon their own heads. -Desire of Ages 65,66
Herod believed that this one he called "King of the Jews" was a threat to his rule. So, he used his powers to try and prevent His arrival. IT IS HAPPENING AGAIN TODAY!!!
In today's world you have a large amount of people claiming to be Christians preaching that when Jesus arrives HE WILL REIGN ON EARTH 1000 YEARS AND TAKE OVER ALL THE GOVERNMENTS TO BRING PEACE. Why do they believe this easy to expose lie? Because they are holding a bogus bible in their hands THINKING it is the Word of God. On my "1000 years" page I share the Biblical FACTS about where we will be before, during, and after the 1000 years prophecy speaks of. But if you look at that page with an NIV, NASB, or RSV Bible, you will find numerous verses appear to be either missing or re-written. I use the KJV Bible for a reason folks. Not only is it the only Bible that matches up with the Dead Sea Scrolls, it is also the Bible Rome hates with a passion.
The agenda of Satan is easily known my friends if you just look at his past actions. Two thousand years ago he needed to get the government in such a place that would allow him to attack Jesus Christ personally. Even the Jews were used by Satan in a major way to get the government involved. And now we see this happening today. It appears everyone is believing now that when Jesus comes He will take over the governments of this world and put an end to their evil rule, and then reign on Earth 1000 years. And the government doesn't like that idea at all!
The error filled preachers and teachers are doing the exact same thing the Pharisee's did. They are getting the men in power to look upon this second coming of Christ as a major threat to them. And in their rage filled fervor of activity, they are making plans to STOP any and all preachings, teachings, and conversations of same.
Since the devil has been so successful in getting ALL the religions into a massive group hug by using the Pope of today, he can now use this ecumenical movement to his advantage. In the first newsletter I listed above entitle "United State Church of America" you will find that the Vatican has been VERY busy behind closed doors making sure "certain laws" were being lobbied and passed that would directly effect every single Christian the world over.
I just received an article a couple of weeks ago that will shock many of you to the core! Hopefully this will also awaken many of you reading out of a spiritual slumber. This article proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are indeed on the very threshold of the enforcement of the MARK OF THE BEAST.
In "The Trumpet Vol 9, Issue 6 Nov/Dec 2001" publication it is stated, "The most prominent and successful certified public accountant firm in the nation today, that specializes in keeping churches out of trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors of America that they not only have to be "ordained by God, but also the IRS."
That's right, the UNITED STATES CHURCH OF AMERICA seems to have officially opened for business! In this article by Dr Greg J. Dixon it is reported that in order to be able to keep your 501C3 tax free status as a church. You not only have to AGREE that all other churches INCLUDING NON-CHRISTIAN CHURCHES are equal to yours in every way. But you must also agree to teach and embrace the SACRAMENTS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC VATICAN as Christian requirements for tax free status.
I was thinking of commenting on certain excerpts from the article. However, after reading it I decided it is best that it is read completely top to bottom to get the full understanding as to what has transpired. So... please take a few moments to read the ENTIRE article below. In it you will see just how the Roman Catholic Church has not only infiltrated, but has taken complete control of the IRS. This has been done for the sole purpose of stopping the mouths of those churches that will not go along with the Vat-of-sin in Rome. The government of the USA is showing the birth pangs of Herodian theology. They are running scared "thinking" those twisted sermons and misunderstood prophecies of all those bogus Bible preachers are true. They think Jesus is coming to "reign on Earth" and take away their ability to bilk billions out of your pockets on a weekly basis. So, they are making plans just like Herod in his day to ensure their reign goes undisturbed. And we owe it all to those preachers, pastors, priests, ministers, and lay people grasping the bogus Bibles of the Roman Catholic printing presses. Our own religious leaders have given Satan a major opportunity to seal the fates of billions by their UNinspired sermons. I honestly believe this is one major method the beast in Rome will use to enforce its mark in the very near future. Many churches will no doubt fall for this ploy of Rome and go along and sign away their religious freedoms anyway so as to "stay in the business" of making money. However, there ARE those that will not go along. The article below is a detailed description of one small church that did just that.
As for those that do go along with the Vatican sanctioned IRS requirements. Are you wondering how these so called christian preachers see no wrong in yolking with unbelievers? Well it has to do with some major religious leaders that have been recorded declaring JESUS IS NO LONGER NECESSARY to gain Heaven. For the documented facts, see the next three newsletters I wrote some time back...
By the way, please pray for those church leaders that have started churches and have gone the unBiblical route of the "TAX FREE" status of the 501C3. (Jesus paid taxes... See Matthew 17:24-27) Those churches will soon be attacked by the IRS and forced into signing away their religious freedoms so as to go along with ROME. And those that don't will have their tax free status removed immediately, which by the way will be retroactive as well. That means if they were a church 20 years with tax free status, then they owe those back taxes PLUS PENALTIES AND INTEREST! That amounts to MILLIONS and that will effectively shut them down as well as put the Pastors in financial disaster status immediately.
Please, I implore you to read the ENTIRE article! There are many twists and turns within it! You WILL be shocked!
THE TRUMPET vol. IX -
Issue 6 NOV/DEC 2001
Internal Revenue Service: PASTORS MUST BE
ORDAINED BY THE IRS
by Dr. Greg J. Dixon
The most prominent and successful certified public
accountant firm in the nation today, that specializes in keeping churches out of
trouble with the Internal Revenue Service, is now boldly saying to the pastors
of America that they not only have to be "ordained by God, but also the
They also say that the IRS is dictating terms to the churches by declaring in clear and no uncertain terms that, "The government doesn't want your Bible, they want your checkbook!" In seminars all over the US, Chitwood and Chitwood of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is repeating this startling announcement to pastors and church leaders. Without so much as a blush, Michael Chitwood, the main speaker, says, besides the above quotes, "Pastor, if you don't get your house in order, get ready, you are going to have a jail ministry" as he practically screams out to those present as to what pastors and church leaders must do to avoid jail time and the confiscation of church property by the federal government.
Besides giving the pastor his job description, which is based on
the Roman Catholic model of worship and polity, the IRS is demanding many other
things that are clearly designed to make the IRS Commissioner the new head of
the churches in America Some of these demands are as follows: The church must
collect a Federal ID (Social Security) number from visiting evangelists,
missionaries, preachers and singers before they invite them to the pulpit. They
must give a Form 1099 to any minister who receives up to $600 in a years time,
which includes missionary support. If the ID is not received, the church leaders
must withhold a jeopardy assessment of 39% on the spot and send it to the IRS.
They must agree to the IRS definition of benevolence. They cannot deal in cash
at any level, but must deposit all offerings into a checking account and write
checks for every purpose. This means, of course, that the church, in order to
conduct its ministry, has to have an Employer Identification Number which must
be provided by the IRS by filing Form SS-4 which a true New Testament church
could never do and remain obedient to her Lord. In fact, church leaders would
have to misrepresent the church as a religious organization rather than a N.T.
Church to do so. Other things that pastors and church leaders are required to do
are to be an informer against their members and also to preach only IRS
prescribed sermons. Also, all fund raising material must be submitted to the IRS
for their approval.
The job description for pastors is a list of nine specific sacerdotal duties which again is a Roman Catholic definition meaning sacred. The Catholic church teaches that these sacraments, when administered by a priest, are essential to ones salvation. This is totally opposite to the Bible definition which states that baptism and communion are memorials of the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and that they follow salvation. The nine duties are: baptisms, weddings, serving the Eucharist (the Catholic sacrament of communion), teaching , spiritual counseling, christenings or baby dedications, administration of church affairs and the regular conducting of worship services. If the pastor does a substantial number of these things, he will receive very lucrative tax breaks. This is in clear violation of the scriptures concerning the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes which the Lord Jesus said that He hates (Rev. 2:6, 2:15). It is the setting up of a privileged class of clergy with benefits from the state that lay members do not receive. Others who minister to the church in the area of music, youth, children, education and other areas of responsibility don't qualify.
This is consistent with what officials of the IRS told Attorney David Gibbs of the Christian Law Association (CLA) in 1984 when they said that their definition of church is "once per week adult worship." They said that they did not consider such ministries as Sunday school, Christian school, busses, youth camp, vacation Bible school, nursing home, etc., to fall within their definition of the word "church". This Gibbs/IRS meeting took place in Washington, DC at the time that the so called champion of Christian liberty was hammering out a compromise with the Dole Committee (Sen. Bob Dole-R-Kansas) in the US Senate to bring the churches into compliance with the FICA tax (social security) laws. This was the deal that would eventually cause the raid and seizure of the Baptist Temple 17 years later. It's too bad that Gibbs didn't sound the alarm at that time and call the Bible believing pastors together for a summit meeting to map out a strategy that could have possibly saved our churches and ministries. The unregistered church pastors tried, but unfortunately our words fell on deaf ears. The so called "big" preachers were too busy receiving their tax deductible gifts and building their empires to be concerned over the future of God's work. Now the enemies of Christ have sprung the trap and it is too late.
These requirements should be intolerable enough by just the fact that the IRS would even dare to suggest duties for pastors, but to impose under the penalty of imprisonment and confiscation of property the same responsibilities of Roman Catholic priests is nothing short of naked tyranny. Obviously, the inquisition has returned and the pastors and churches of America are not even aware that it has arrived. The raid and seizure of the property of the Baptist Temple is the direct result of the pastors and church refusing to bow down to this new wave of Catholic terror that has come upon our land. The issue in the Baptist Temple case isn't taxes as the IRS, with the help of the media, has led the people of Indianapolis and nation to believe. The issue is very simple. Will the churches of America bow down to the IRS in violation of the first commandment, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me," or will they bow down to the Lord Jesus Christ? Our Lord said, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon" (Matthew 6:24). The purge is now on as we hear of churches and ministries being closed on a regular basis. But there is still no evidence that the pastors have awakened from their stupor.
The benevolent requirements for churches are beyond atrocious. They are five in number: food, clothing, housing, medical emergencies and utilities. The church cannot help with transportation or auto repairs and a myriad of other things that churches have historically done on a regular basis. The church cannot make loans to the pastor, members, or others which churches have always done. Obviously, they want to make sure that the money lenders get their profits even from the poor. Can you imagine the government of the US limiting a church as to its duties in regarding charitable activity? There is no subject in the Bible that is nearer to the heart of God than charity. According to the apostle James, it is the test of pure religion (James 1:27). Paul the Apostle declares that charity is of higher value even than preaching and sacrifice (I Cor. 13:1-3). For the churches to debase such a high and noble service to Christ by submitting its administration to the wicked IRS is beyond belief. How will the preachers of America give an account of caving into this coercion by an abusive Bush administration who is continuing with the policies of those before him? How will church leaders face the Lord Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ when He asks them why they violated His clear commands concerning alms giving? He said, "Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men, Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly." But now the churches are required to get the permission of the IRS before helping someone other than in the manner and purpose that they approve. Then records will have to be kept for the IRS so that the publicans can make sure that the church is in fact following their guidelines. And, of course, they expect church leaders to report this alms giving to the IRS so that they can even gouge the poor for more tribute. And all of this so the churches can keep their tax exemption and the people can get their precious tax deductions for their tithes and gifts. As James Dobson's organization said when challenged, "It's just good stewardship." Thievery, good stewardship? How sad.
It may be that the churches have now gone too far. When they begin building their dynasties on the backs of the poor our Lord, no doubt, will be swift in His removal of their candlestick. He said to the church at Ephesus, "Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works: or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent" (Rev. 2:5).
All Churches Now Required to Join IRS Super Church
Two other developments concerning IRS control of churches has risen recently that should literally send shock waves through the religious community. First, while the churches are arguing doctrinal positions among themselves, and won't even spit on each other for the most part, the IRS has now developed its own super church. Independent Baptists in particular pride themselves in their anti-ecumenism. No fundamentalist preacher worth his salt would be caught dead at the local church federation meeting where he has to rub shoulders with a charismatic or liberal preacher. However, they don't think twice about paying a large fee to go to a Chitwood or CLA seminar and sit next to one of these religious outcasts to learn how to be a good IRS approved church and pastor.
It is now a fact that in order to get and keep the tax-exempt status a church must agree that all religions are equal. The new Application for Recognition of Exemption Form 1023 Schedule A for Churches (Rev. September 1998) demands a declaration to this effect with the following words at point #3: "Does the organization require prospective members to renounce other religious beliefs or their membership in other churches or religious orders to become members? Yes__ No__. If "Yes," describe."
It doesn't take much intelligence to figure out where they are going with this. In order to be considered a legal church (tax exempt) in America, the church or religious organization will have to declare that all religions are equal. They will also have to declare that they do not believe that their doctrinal position only results in converts to their faith having eternal life. They must renounce this narrow inclusivist position. Maybe we now know why Billy Graham, Robert Schuller, Pat Robertson, and other TV preachers have been making such fuzzy remarks about adherents of other religions, though sincere, going to heaven without receiving Christ. In that tax exemption is government subsidy, according to the Supreme Court in the Bob Jones University case, it is now clear that the US government will not support any religion that clings to the narrow minded belief that salvation is in Jesus Christ alone. Remember? "Come Shekels, Come Shackles." The world church isn't coming; it is already here, and the preachers don't have a clue as they go merrily along hand in hand with the Great Harlot to the wedding with the anti-Christ. (Rev. 17).
US Government Through the IRS Outlaws Preaching on Second Coming of Christ
One of the reasons the IRS gave to Texe Marr's Living Truth Ministries for removing their tax exempt status is as follows: "Much of the material you disseminate promises to address possible conspiracies or threats, either from individuals, groups or various agencies, against Christianity, freedom or other rights. This is evident from a review of your newsletters and order forms. The titles and promotional materials are designed to sensationalize and grab the readers attention. They usually imply that the works will expose certain prominent groups, individuals, politicians or government agencies as being part of or linked to some threat or conspiracy." One of the titles that the IRS gave as an example included "Bible Prophecy and The Conspiracy."
Any grade school child in Sunday School knows that you can't teach or write on Bible prophecy without dealing with the second coming of Jesus Christ. But just as the Russian pastors under communism were forbidden to speak on this subject, we are now coming to the same place in our beloved land. It is obvious that if one believes in the literal return of the Lord Jesus Christ that they will be considered a domestic terrorist. In that the Lord Jesus will destroy wicked government upon His return in great glory and break the back of Gentile world rule, this message isn't popular with the in-for-hells and the high-heeled-belles that run our country today. Of course, they don't believe that He is coming, but they believe that we who do will be involved in what they call self-fulfilled prophecies and try to hasten His coming by blowing up everything in sight. Further evidence of this type of anti-Christ thinking surfaced recently when a brochure put out by the FBI in Phoenix, Arizona, named "potential domestic terrorists" that law enforcement should be aware of. One of those groups is "Doomsday/Cult-Type." Obviously, this would include all Bible believing preachers and churches in America. We not only believe that there will be a literal doomsday, we believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will bring the doom when He comes (Rev. 6:12-17). It won't do any good to claim that your church is not a "cult". The IRS definition fits the average Bible believing church to a tee.
Many have asked if we can actually show them this in the law. Our answer is no, we can't because you won't find a specific law that says that you can't preach on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ in America today. That's because they don't have to write a law to gain the same effect. All Congress has to do is to give an outlaw agency like the IRS a carte blanche privilege of making up their own so-called laws as they go along. The churches agreed to this when they signed their tax-exempt contract. They said that they would obey all laws, federal, state and local, presently and in the future. But they apparently didn't read the fine print. The new churches filing for tax exemption must agree to the following: "The Corporation or organization shall have no power to take any action that would be required for a tax exemption under Internal Revenue
Code Section 501(c)(3) and related regulations, rulings, and procedures." It is now the "procedure" of the IRS to refuse tax exempt status to those churches that will not agree that all religions are equal and who refuse to join through tax exemption, the world church. Also, preaching on Christ's coming is taboo.
For those churches which are foolish enough to believe that Sec. 508 of the IRS code allows an automatic exemption for churches, need to read it again. It doesn't say "exemption," it says, "...churches have a mandatory exception." The exception is from filing a Form 1023 to make application for not for profit status. Here is the kicker. Churches have to abide by the same rules that those that do file for this privilege. And if they do not, the IRS can, and most assuredly will, remove their tax exemption. The only thing missing is the annual Form 990 that other religious organizations have to file. When this is required, the churches will be under total control of the IRS with no wiggle room.
In the Baptist Temple court case, the church learned that a New Testament Church does not legally exist in the US today because there are no longer any First Amendment protections left. The genius of the First Amendment and various religious freedom clauses of the fifty states is that, for the first time in history, a N. T. Church could exist legally without having in the words of the IRS a "distinct legal existence." Now even a N.T. Church will be assigned by force the legal status of an association and will be expected to meet the same standards that the not for profits have to meet. But, they still won't have their God given right of a non-taxable status. This status is in contrast to an exempt status which is a privilege not a right.
IRS Agent Says That Churches are Trapped
The evidence as to what we are saying, though denied by most preachers, was made clear on January 24 this year in Tampa, Florida. IRS agent Melvin Blough testified in federal court that "once a church obtains the status of 501(c)(3) under the IRC they are trapped. The only way to be removed from a 501(c)(3) status is if the IRS chooses to remove the exemption. So if you dissolve the corporation and continue on as ABC church, an unincorporated church, you're still trapped in their web and under their control." He further testified that a church is automatically exempt under federal law without a 501(c)(3) designation. He also stated under oath that churches request the status just to get the governments stamp of approval. Even though Blough used the word "exemption" rather than "exception," he is essentially correct in his assessment of the plight of the churches of America. It is obvious that, regardless, the result is the same.

A splendid slideshow! Is it possible to make translations from it in the same design and technique for example for the Netherlands? In other words, can you give permission and technical support to do so?
P.S. We're looking forward for your slide show about the sabbath!
Excellent Slide show, well organized.
Father bless you
Rev 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying. Come out of her my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
...I have been looking around your
site and it is very interesting. This year happens to be the first year we
did not celebrate Christmas. We did not buy one present, have a tree or
anything. It all started when we read a book or Joe Cruz book, Baptized
Paganism (Amazing Facts). Unintentionally we started quite a ruckus at
church because we did not want to be a part of nor let our kids be a part of
the songs they had picked to sing. Another woman who was convicted about
Christmas at our church also
wanted nothing to do with it and we found about each other through casual conversation. It was very interesting and many others are now questioning it and some of them did not celebrate either. I believe we are all being "called out of babylon" and we need to get it completely out of our lives. I would still like to get the slide show in a format so I can use it for our church...
God bless, KC
