U.S. Churches become Government Agencies!
Christian greetings in these last days of life on earth. On March 7th 2006 the Bush administration put into law a brand new executive order (# 13397) that REMOVES the separation of church and state and forces all churches (with 501C3 status) to become government agencies. Strangely enough, this came almost exactly one year after Pope John Paul II said the following…
Church and State Can Cooperate, Says Pope
getting into the current facts, let’s look at the past movements of the beast
313AD - The so-called edict
321AD – His
famous Sunday law, which served to unite his Christian and pagan subjects in
“the venerable day of the Sun.”
323AD or 324AD – His attainment of sole rule of the whole empire by
the defeat of his last rival, the pagan Licinius, who had resumed persecution
of Christians in the East; his open espousal and proclamation of Christianity
about this time, and the subsequent disappearance of the sun-god and other
pagan symbols from his coinage.
325 AD – His convening of the council of Nicea, which he dominated, on order to secure unity in the church; subsequently, his enforcement of that unity against heretical Christians in favor of the Catholic church.
For all these facts and much more, look into the book written by Philip Schaff called “History of the Christian church” Vol. 3, pp 30-31. Or you can find this data in “Brief bible readings for the home” pp, 367 - 368

off, it would have to obviously become a church & state entity. Still, the
main image of this beast is not only about melding church & state. The true
agenda behind all this is CONTROL to put it bluntly.

...After a tough debate last night in the House chamber, Congressman Walter Jones' Houses of Worship Political Speech Protection Act was voted down this morning. If it had passed, the bill would have freely allowed political speech inside churches without the fear of the loss of tax-exempt status with the Internal Revenue Service. When the vote finally came in, the legislation was defeated 237-178. There were 16 abstentions. Following this action by the House, churches will remain the only place where "free speech" is not allowed in the

If you have a 501C3 tax free status, you will be expected to comply with all these “rules and regulations” and any other additions they deem necessary. The government now holds the strings and there isn’t thing one you can do about it.
If you do not agree in any way shape or form with the government you will loose your tax free status and be investigated to the point where all previous years as a tax free entity will be audited and eventually rescinded. Then you, your church board, and anyone else associated with the church in the “decision” making process will be liable for back taxes, excise taxes, as well as penalties that will literally shut you down.
In short, if you are a church 20 years and are found at fault you will be financially ruined and forced into bankruptcy. Truth is they already “tested” this out recently in November of 2001 so as to educate themselves on the problems entailed in annihilating churches. This is the main topic of my “Roman Catholic IRS” page. I was also informed just the other day that some Sabbath keeping churches and ministries that fell for the 501C3 trap have in fact tried to have it removed by contacting the IRS. However, in the attempt, the IRS stated quite boldly they would fine them as well as confiscate all properties and furnishings gathered over the life of the 501C3. So, yes, this is a foothold that has become overwhelming to some! Need I state what the right thing to do is?

pastors fall for this? It’s because of greed, plain and simple. If you want to
be able to go to the local market to buy “non ministry specific” goods without
paying taxes you will need a tax free ID number. Not only are they lying when
they do this, they are also going against Christ’s written will regarding the separation
of church and state! The only way a church can get that tax free number is to
INCORPORATE WITH THE STATE! Then the 501C3 is assured, and the tax ID number is

A word of warning… Please don’t think that just because you’re not a pastor or a preacher that you’re safe in these “government” funded “faith based” 501C3 churches. Since they are “faith based funded” you are now being watched and reported on by the church staff. If they refuse to do so, they will in fact loose their faith based funding and are then placed in certain financial jeopardy. The money they can loose far outweighs their loyalty to you, your spouse or your children! You alone will suddenly become the problem, and seeing how real Christians love to preach TRUTH, you will be dis-fellowshipped. But not before being “tagged” a subversive worthy of observation by big brother.
Biblical fact is, Jesus Himself declared the following…

Rep. Harris: Church-state separation 'a lie'
POSTED: 5:37 p.m.
MIAMI, Florida (AP) -- U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris told a religious journal that separation of church and state is "a lie" and God and the nation's founding fathers did not intend the country be "a nation of secular laws."

The Christian bible easily
exposes this woman to be a liar. However, seeing how there is already a
prophecied famine in the land of people refusing to open bibles. (Amos 8:11)
This “assumed” educated politician will be considered intelligent and therefore
trustworthy. She may be intelligent in matters of the state, but matters of the
eternal truth she is far lacking indeed. Still, many will place their trust in
her over Scripture simply because the prophecy states their bibles are dust
collectors and they have a massive lack of knowledge. In other words, if you
don’t read the warning signs you will blindly fall in the pit. And for those
that do see her as a liar, if they speak up they are either financially ruined
or dis-fellowshipped and placed under governmental observation. And it is

The 501C3 was obviously a trap. Preachers with understanding of the end time prophecies have been stating that very fact for just over 5 decades now. Problem is, the monetary greed of the other preachers far outweighed the concrete evidence they peered into. Now this small insignificant “tax free” foothold has become a snare they could never imagine. It is so overwhelming and so massive now that even if they wanted to they simply cannot break free of it without an absolute financial disaster. Especially if they have become a large church and have been around for a few years. If they refuse to comply with the Federal Government on this one, the families of the church board will be financially ruined guaranteed.
Yes, once again, Satan has been able to dangle the “almighty dollar” before the eyes of the weak so as to claim his prey! And all prophecy had to say in warning was…
<![if !supportLists]>· <![endif]>Revelation 13:14, "And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live."
The Lord doesn’t need to explain the details, because doing so would give the wicked the upper hand. Only those seeking truth would dig deep enough to discover it. Our Lord just needed to inform us they would do it. How it comes to fruition has become plain enough now. John becomes a glaring beacon for those that trusted Christian prophecy all along now doesn’t it? Some won’t believe until AFTER the fulfillment. I say, so be it. Better late then never eh?
