PRISON TRANSFORMED ASIA BIBI

WASHINGTON — A Pakistani Christian woman imprisoned on death row for over eight years based on trumped-up blasphemy charges recounted how that experience helped her “grow strong in faith.” 

In an address to religious freedom advocates at the annual International Religious Freedom Summit, Asia Bibi, aided by a translator, described how her experience in prison transformed her from an “ordinary Christian” into a passionate defender and believer of the faith.

And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

Asia Bibi
Pakistani Islamists hold a poster displaying the portrait of Asia Bibi, a Christian Pakistani woman accused of blasphemy, during a protest against the Supreme Court decision on Bibi’s case in Lahore on February 1, 2019. As Islamist extremists announced fresh protests demanding her execution, officials said she was free to go abroad, with speculation rampant that she will seek asylum in Europe or North America. 

Bibi’s ordeal began when Muslim field workers accused her of contaminating their water supply by drinking from the same water container, rendering it “impure” because Christians are viewed as unclean. An argument ensued between Bibi and the women that escalated into a criminal complaint after the women publicly accused her of committing blasphemy by insulting the Islamic prophet Muhammad, a charge that brings a sentence of life in prison or death by hanging. 

During a police investigation into her alleged crime, Bibi was beaten up in her home and arrested. In 2009, she was convicted and sentenced to death under section 295-C of Pakistan’s blasphemy law. 

This is the antichrist spirit at work and will culminate in the prophesied Antichrist figure spoken of in Revelation 13.

Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come.1 John 2:18

And every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.1 John 4:3

For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.” 2 John 1:7

Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.1 John 2:22

REALITY OF MUSLIM/JEWS CONFLICT

Pakistani politician Moulana Abdul Akbar Chitrali, a member of the National Assembly from the Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal Party demanded that the Pakistani military declare Jihad against Israel and use its long range missiles, F-17 fighter jets, and atom bomb against it. He made his remarks in a speech that was aired on PTV (Pakistan) on May 17, 2021.

Moulana Chitrali said that Pakistan is the seventh most powerful country, and it should not use its missiles and atom bomb as children’s toys or artifacts in a museum. He continued to say that Jihad is the only way to liberate Kashmir and Palestine.

Muslims wherever they live in Gaza, West Bank within Israel’s borders or elsewhere in the world have one agenda, one goal, Jihad, the annihilation of Israel. Biden’s two state solution is not an option for the Palestinians, nor for their Muslim neighbours. This is a spiritual battle, the outcome of which is known and given to us in God’s Word. Jesus will eventually rule and reign the nations for 1000 years from a restored Jerusalem/Israel.

THE THOUSAND YEARS

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands.
They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.” REVELATION 20:1-6

WOKE OR AWAKE?

It seems as though “wokeness” ideology is taking over our society with everyone from churches, to schools, to giant corporations seeing who can be the most “woke.”

“Woke” ideas emphasize feelings over facts, pretend that individuals determine reality for themselves (i.e. your “truth”), put a priority on affirming feelings, ideas, or behaviors rather than considering the good of others, and often deny even the ability to know objective truth, certainly not Biblical truth. Being “woke” means you have become enlightened to the alleged systemic oppression of various groups and you vow to fight for “social justice” which usually means working for equal economic and social outcomes in a given context. One example of bowing to woke culture is the increased popularity of Critical Race Theory, even in the Church. The theory utilizes race as the lens through which every area of life is examined, categorizing everyone into oppressor and oppressed groups. “This is a religious movement,” Christian pastor and apologist Voddie Baucham (dean of theology at African Christian University in Zambia) said. “It has all the trappings of a religion. It has its own cosmology, it has its own saints, it has its own liturgy, its own law. It has all of those elements. And a lot of those things are very subtle, which makes them rather attractive to religious people.” He explained that, because Christians are rightly concerned with fighting injustice, condemning racism, and promoting equality of opportunities, philosophies like CRT are appealing, even when their underpinnings are “absolutely” in contradiction to Scripture.

Historic Christianity, and even things like logic and science, are seen as oppressive, racist, bigoted, etc. Today’s “woke” culture is tearing our society apart and erecting barriers to people considering the true Gospel and the freedom it provides. In reality, the current popular understanding of “social justice” that undergirds the “woke” movement is the opposite of the good all humans should pursue and is anything but just (i.e. giving someone else their due).

We cannot love our neighbors well and lead them to the feet of Jesus if we sacrifice truth and goodness on the false altar of “wokeness” ideology. It’s time to wake up as we are fast approaching the last days when the Antichrist (The Lawless One) will be revealed. We need to be saying to the next generation, “Expect to be aliens and sojourners. This is not our home. Jesus places us here to be a light to this dark world, not to be part of the darkness”0 .

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.2 Thessalonians 2:9-11
Stand Firm

TURKEY’S ROLE IN THE END TIMES

Under Erdogan, Turkey has put Islam back in place of secularism and is asserting itself once again as the dominant Muslim nation as it was in the days of the Ottoman Empire.

The Ottoman Empire was founded in 1299 by Osman Ghazi and consistently grew from 1299 to 1683. The first 10 rulers of the Ottoman Empire were considered the most successful kings. Of particular note was Suleiman the Magnificent. It was during his reign that the Ottoman Empire rose to its peak of power and domination.

The Ottomans proved their strength in the Battle of Djerba in 1560. During the naval battle the Ottomans inflicted 10-20 times as many casualties as they sustained from the Christian alliance’s navy. The path was open for another attack on Malta.

The Great Siege of Malta was the major turning point for the Ottoman Turks. The Knights of Malta led by Grand Master Jean Parisot de La Valette played the lead role.

Queen Elizabeth I stated, “If the Turks should prevail against the Isle of Malta, it is uncertain what further peril might follow to the rest of Christendom.”

The rulers of numerous Christian realms and military orders soon put aside their differences, partially inspired by the Siege of Malta, and formed the Holy League. The Holy League went on to win a decisive victory against the Ottomans at the Battle of Lepanto six years later. And the Knights Hospitaller, later the Knights of Malta, still have their headquarters on the island to this day.

The Ottoman period spanned more than 600 years and came to an end only in 1922 after WW1 when it was replaced by the Turkish Republic and various successor states in southeastern Europe and the Middle East.

The popular Turkish reaction to the reconversion of Hagia Sophia (known as Aya Sophia in Turkish) cannot be explained without reference to these historical facts. The attempt by the “Christian” allied powers to carve up the Turkish homeland in addition to detaching the non-Turkish portions of the Ottoman Empire and dividing them up among themselves have been strong reminders for the Turks over generations of their loss of greatness. The transformation of Hagia Sophia from a mosque to a museum was perceived as a part of this loss that needed to be remedied.

The mosque of Hagia Sophia was a major symbol of the Ottoman victory over the Byzantine Empire in 1453 and an emblem of Turkish pride. Ataturk’s decision to turn it into a museum to display its dual Byzantine and Islamic heritage was an attempt to demonstrate both a break from what he considered to be the decrepit Ottoman past and to establish Turkey’s credentials as a “civilized” nation in the eyes of the West. But, this decision had been resented by the religiously observant Turkish masses imbued with the combined spirit of Islam and Ottomanism.

Thus, the reconversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque, which it had been for close to five hundred years, as a move to revive his dwindling popularity appeared an attractive and relatively costless proposition to Erdogan. However, such a move cannot succeed in a vacuum for it would not work if it did not touch a vital chord in Turkish hearts. That the decision would appeal to a large majority of Turks is the gamble that Erdogan has taken and there is sufficient evidence to conclude that it has worked.

ISLAMIC TERRORISM

French President Emmanuel Macron denounced the violence in a tweet. “More than 50 people have been beheaded, women kidnapped, villages looted and then set on fire. Islamist terrorism is an international threat that calls for an international response.”

Reports of more than 50 beheadings by Mozambique’s Islamic extremist rebels have raised international alarm over the new level of violence in the country’s north. The killings mark a bloody turn in the three-year insurgency in Cabo Delgado province, prompting condemnations from the United Nations secretary-general and the presidents of France and Zimbabwe.  In the past two weeks, the extremists have seized nine towns in the Muidumbe district of Cabo Delgado, extending their range from the port of Mocimboa da Praia, which they have held since August, according to reports in local media. Capturing the town of Muatide, the insurgents established a centre on a soccer pitch where they beheaded more than 50 people, according to Pinnacle News, which has correspondents throughout the province.

Further proof, if any is needed, that Islam is the widespread malevolent Antichrist spirit that would be intent on killing Christians in the Biblical end times prior to Jesus return.

 

POPE FRANCIS ON THE GOSPEL

Pope Francis has certainly said a lot of controversial things over the years, but what he just told a group of Christian high school students is the most controversial of all. I know that may be hard to believe, because some of the statements that Pope Francis has made in recent years have definitely been extremely bizarre. For example, he has said that “Muslim terrorism does not exist,” he told a gay man that “God made you that way” and he has referred to Christian fundamentalists as “a scourge.” But what he has just said tops all of those previous statements. According to Breitbart, Pope Francis told a group of high school students he was visiting with that they should never try to convert others to Christianity:

Pope Francis

Pope Francis told Christian high school students this weekend they should respect people of other faiths and not attempt to convert them to Christianity, insisting “we are not living in the times of the crusades.”

Asked by one of the students Friday how a Christian should treat people of other faiths or no faith, the pope said that “we are all the same, all children of God” and that true disciples of Jesus do not proselytize.

In fact, the Pope went on to say that if someone comes to you and is trying to share the gospel, that individual “is not a disciple of Jesus”:

“But listen, the gospel is never, ever advanced through proselytism,” he continued. “If someone says he is a disciple of Jesus and comes to you with proselytism, he is not a disciple of Jesus. Proselytism is not the way; the Church does not grow by proselytism.”

And in case there were some students who were confused about what he had just said, Pope Francis made the exact same point one more time:

Football teams proselytize, this can be done. Political parties, can be done there. But with faith there is no proselytism.

So there you have it, according to Pope Francis, Christians are never supposed to try to convert anyone.

But this would seem to directly contradict the words of Jesus. The following are just a few examples.

Matthew 28:18-20

Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,teaching them to observe all things I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Mark 16:15-16

He said to them, “Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved. But he who does not believe will be condemned.”

Acts 1:8

“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Of all the things that Pope Francis has ever said, this has to be the most damning of all. He is at least demonstrating an antichrist spirit.

Does he really want billions of people to have no hope?

Without Jesus, there is no hope and no future for anyone.

SATANICALLY INSPIRED LIBERAL MADNESS

We Are in a War With the ‘Rule or Ruin’ Radical Left

Abbreviated article by Bert M. Farias, revivalist and founder of Holy Fire Ministries. in Charisma Media

The totalitarian liberal left’s radical madness of “We will rule our nation or ruin our nation” is evident all across the nation.” How can you even rationalise with someone of this unreasonable and wicked mindset? It is a war of resistance and rebellion against the Bible and the American Constitution.

Listen to this compelling quote from Abraham Lincoln in his 1860 speech on the abolition of slavery where he outlines the attitude of the slave owners, which is directly related to the totalitarian left’s attitude today.

“Your purpose then plainly stated is that you will destroy the government unless you be allowed to construe and enforce the constitution as you please when all points in dispute between you and us. You will rule or ruin in all events.” —Abraham Lincoln

There is a level of hatred and resistance now in our nation that is beyond natural. It is of the demonic realm.

This all began building momentum after the election of President Donald Trump on that fateful day for all Democrats in November 2016. The defeat of Hillary Clinton loosened the grip on socialism and atheistic communism and the complete remaking of Barack Obama’s America.

This is the reason the day after the inauguration you heard influential celebrities like Madonna saying she has dreams of the White House burning down and being destroyed. It’s the reason other popular figures use such derogatory language and profanities against our president. Remember the image, still so clear in my mind, of the woman holding a model of the bloody head of Donald Trump in her hand?

A recent tweet from a popular public figure read like this:

“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”

That is pure demonic hatred. It is inhumane. It speaks of the characteristics outlined in an evil, last-days people:

It is not normal. It is a murderous Satanic spirit. Never in my lifetime or perhaps the entire history of our nation have we seen this kind of disrespect and dishonour for the highest office in the land. It is demonic filth and hatred.

This irrational and senseless attitude, which borders on insanity, is the prevailing spirit in our nation. It’s like a virus. The ungodly media is shaping the minds of multitudes and spreading this virus. That’s why you had the desperation to find collusion with the Russians, which, one Washington reporter, after two years of investigation, says turned up no evidence at all. Zero. Zilch. Nada. But just as with the Kavanaugh hearings, it’s never been about evidence. It’s about smearing, undermining, distorting the facts and character defamation of the truly upright.

unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those who are good” (2 Tim. 3:2-3)

When you have such insensible, corrupt and lawless leaders and rulers in our nation, you are looking at an unending war that is not going to be stopped anytime soon, even if conservatives win the midterms. A battle has been won, but the war continues. This is already a large leaven in our nation. It’s too big a ship to turn in one election; and honestly, I’m not even sure it can be turned anytime soon.

This is an unending war against American patriotism, the rule of law and fair play. But most of all, it is a war of resistance and rebellion against the Bible and our Constitution. There is no method to this radical liberal madness of “we will rule our nation or ruin our nation.” How can you even rationalise with someone of this unreasonable and wicked mindset?

The totalitarian left threatens democracy and government in America. It also more importantly, threatens our Judeo-Christian heritage. It is further evidence we are in the “last days”. Satan understand his time is short and he intends to inflict us much damage as possible on God’s creation.

 

SATANIC INSPIRATION FOR POPE PAUL VI AUDIENCE HALL?

Pope Paul VI Audience Hall – explain the snake eye windows with “devil diamond” centres, the “Christ” figure swarmed with snake & tentacles-like imagery & the snake design architecture inside & out. The Pope & audiences sit INSIDE the snake. Hidden in plain sight, but there might as well be a snake on top of a column on either side of “The Resurrection” sculpture. To say the least, the design of this building is bizarre, but for Pope PAUL VI Audience Hall it has to be satanically devised. There is no otherwise reasonable explanation.

As you can already begin to see in the image above, there are two windows on either side of the building that resemble eyes. They are made of stained glass and sit about halfway through the building’s length on either side.

In the centre of the eye shape, you begin to see a slit that could resemble a reptile eye. If you’re not convinced yet, which is understandable, keep reading. Maybe looking at one window on its own isn’t the most clear, so let’s have a look at both of them together now. All of a sudden we begin to see things taking shape here — two reptilian eyes, staring at you as you observe the stage.

Have a look again at the image below — what do you notice down the centre? There stands what looks to be a statue in the middle and then on either side, two sharp, pointed fangs. The building’s roof and sides also resemble scales.

Now let’s pull it together a bit more so we can really see what we are looking at. In the image above, really pay attention to the whole building and stage layout next to the image of a snake. The eyes, the shape, the scales, the fangs, the look and feel of the reptile… it’s all there. One has to ask what is going on here.

IS POPE FRANCIS THE FALSE PROPHET?

Certainly Pope Francis is a universalist and an evolutionist. I covered this in my 03/11/2017 post on Pope Francis

He says, you  cannot have a personal relationship with God. In fact, Pope Francis says it is a dangerous doctrine.

You cannot believe God’s Word as inerrant and hold to these views. What does he do with all the prophesies of Jesus Second Coming? To my mind, he represents the Antichrist spirit in our time but is he also the False Prophet spoken of in Revelation 19:20.

Image result for picture of Pope Francis with other religious leaders

“Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared, who forbid marriage and require abstinence from foods that God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer.” 1 Timothy 4:1-2

The Vatican signed a treaty that includes recognition of the “state of Palestine,” lending significant symbolic weight to an intensifying Palestinian push for international support for sovereignty that bypasses the paralysed negotiations with Israel.

Palestine is committed to the demise of Israel and from Scripture we know it’s final end. It and all the other nations that come up against Israel. Jesus will destroy them and He will rule and reign from Jerusalem in His soon coming Millennial reign.

“Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war… And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses…. And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and His army. Revelation 19:11-19

This move by the Holy See, demonstrates  it is totally oblivious to the Scriptures prophesying Jesus Second Coming just as the Pharisees and Sadducee’s were at the time of Jesus First Coming.

Palestinian leaders celebrated the Holy See’s endorsement as particularly important, given the international stature of Pope Francis. For Israelis, it was an emotional blow, since Francis has deep relationships with Jews dating back decades, and Christians are critical backers of their enterprise.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the 112th Pope prophesied by St Malachy. Pope Francis may just be the final man to claim the papacy before the utter destruction of Rome—at least according to St. Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes.

St. Malachy was an Irish bishop in the 12th century. The first native-born Irishman to be canonized, he is known in the Roman Catholic Church for his work as a healer, a miracle worker, and as a reformer of the Church in Ireland.

But what he is most known for today is prophecy. St. Malachy was summoned to Rome in 1139 by Pope Innocent II, and while there, he experienced a vision of 112 future popes, which he then recorded as a series of short phrases. This transcript was then placed into the Vatican Secret Archives, where it lay until 1590.

First published in 1595 by Arnold de Wyon, a Benedictine monk, Malachy’s prophecy consists of 112 short Latin descriptions of future popes. Each of these descriptions identifies one outstanding trait for each of these future popes, beginning with Pope Celestine II, who was elected in 1130. This list stretches all the way from the time of St. Malachy to the present, describing, among many others, Pope John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and finally, Pope Francis.

In many ways, these descriptions were uncannily accurate, and so have led to hundreds of years of speculation that this prophecy might just be real, but the real draw of the Prophecy of the Popes is the cataclysm predicted at the end—and the idea that the current pope may be the last before that disaster occurs.

The final of the 112 Latin entries of the prophecy reads as follows.

“In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit Peter the Roman, who will pasture his sheep in many tribulations, and when these things are finished, the city of seven hills [Rome] will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The End.”

The destruction of Rome. With the safety of the Vatican, itself, being threatened, many are now paying close attention to this 12th century foretelling.

The mention of the “tribulations” and “persecution” occurring at the end of Malachy’s prophecy can be interpreted in a sinister way—that “Peter the Roman,” the final pope, may be the Antichrist or False Prophet of Revelation 19:20, which could mean that the Prophecy of the Popes predicts not only the end of Rome, but the Biblical apocalypse.

I posted this video on 03/11/2017 and was surprised I did not get any feedback. The message is important, and as mentioned, whilst I don’t like Dwayne’s impetuous style, it is hard to disagree with what he says.
