Things To Come:  The Shemitah’s Harbingers & What Lies Ahead    ~    Jonathan Cahn

Jonathan Cahn has a gripping conviction about the sin of our nation and about the need for national repentance.  God is not looking at the White House, He is looking at the church house.  II Chronicles 7:14   “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Jonathan Cahn wrote the Harbinger, and now focuses on the Mystery of the Shemitah.  Cahn claims this 3,000 year old mystery holds the secret of America’s future, the world’s future and your future.  His third book is The Harbinger Decoded, and reveals all of these things fulfilled prophetically.
*********************
The Shemitah begins where the Harbinger leaves off.  George Washington placed his hand on the Bible and warned our nation that a disobedient nation could never expect favor from God.  America has rebelled against God, and we are witnessing the removal of His blessing.  A national prayer was given by Washington in what we know today to be ground zero from 9/11/01.  The calamity returned to the same place where the nation was dedicated to God.  Cahn points out the Sycamore tree that was struck down, as well as all of the other buildings during 9/11, EXCEPT the little stone chapel where America was dedicated to God.  This was a miracle.  The Sycamore tree actually saved the chapel.  God was attempting to wake up America, and seeking for America to repent and return to the Lord.
*********************
Cahn is speaking on things to come.  Things related to the Harbinger and to the Shemitah.  What has happened since 9/11?  Our nation’s apostasy has accelerated.  The harbingers have not stopped but have progressed.  We will face revival or total judgment.  The second harbinger in the book is the sign of the terrorists.  The Assyrians attacked Israel in 722 B.C.  Isis is now attacking the world and America.  They are the offspring of Al Qaeda.  The Assyrians and Isis both come from Syria and Iraq.  Both are cruel nations, having the same capitol site of Nineveh.  They both mutilate and decapitate their victims, and place them on display.  A Biblical sign of judgment is a tree withering away with broken branches.  America is spiritually withering away.  Cahn mentioned a tree dying and the moon turning blood red a couple of years ago, coupled with this second harbinger of judgment.  The third harbinger was our determination to rebuild, and make the Twin Towers bigger, stronger and greater.  This was done in pride and arrogance.  It is indicative of the spirit of the Tower of Babel.  The rising and falling of towers is related to the rising and falling of nations.  The new tower has Isaiah 9:10 at its’ base, the verse that alludes to a nation building a tower in defiance of God.

Isaiah 9:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

Our leaders thought this was an appropriate verse for the occasion, but actually it infers God’s judgment on nations who build towers rather than turn to Him!  We think we will come back with our own power, and not that of God.  President Bush spoke on this and said:  “…we will rebuild and we will come back stronger.”  -conspicuously absent was any mention of God.

The Seven Year Mystery.  The Mystery Of Sevens.

Cahn expounded on the Shemitah, and how the land was suppose to rest for one year out of every seven in Israel.  When God judged Israel, all seventy years for which they disobeyed the Lord were collected together when they were taken captive by the Babylonians.  He attempts to show that the same thing could be happening to us as well.  In the last forty years, there have been five times our finances have been shaken- 1973, 1980, 1987, 2000, and 2007.  There are seven years between them all.  Cahn compares previous economic collapses in American history to the Shemitah.  Cahn contends that the Bible ordains most economic crashes in world history to happen in September and October.  9/11 happened during Shemitah.

If America does not turn back to God, then the age of America as we know it will end.

Cahn claims the Shemitah marks the shaping of great world events like World Wars I and II.  It marks the rise and collapses of empires.  The Tribulation Period is likewise seven years.

Every seven Shemitahs in Israel is fulfilled by the Year of Jubilee.  Everything, your land and possessions are restored.  Cahn went into several examples of the Lord fulfilling His will after seven Shemitahs.  There is a significant Shemitah coming up on September 2015 through September 2016.  This is the year of the Jubilee.  Cahn believes this last year represents judgment, and the beginning of the end of the American age, as Russia just passed us as the greatest nuclear power, and China surpassed us as the greatest economic power.  We have also observed the end of the Biblical definition of marriage during this time.  Christians in America are being persecuted now to a large degree.  Cahn brought up the Pharaoh’s dream in the Bible of the seven years of plenty and the seven lean years.  God warned Egypt of what was coming.  This was the first recorded Shemitah in the Bible.  Could the Lord be warning America the same way?  Cahn showed the audience pictures of two cows that each had the number seven on their heads.  They were born at the opening of the Shemitah.

The Shemitah is related to death.  The darkening of the sun can be a sign of judgment.  There are two eclipses scheduled for 2015.  The harbingers are converging with the Shemitahs.  Cahn thinks the single tower replacing the Twin Towers will be a sign, and seals God’s judgment upon America.  We are no longer speculating about prophecy, we are now living in prophecy.  We are observing a great shaking of the global order, involving the collapse of the American economy, the removal of blessing and prosperity, and it may come with famine and the cutting off of our infrastructure.  Unbelievers and those outside of His will should fear.  Jesus is our only refuge and Savior.  If there is going to be a revival, then a great shaking must precede it.  After 9/11 there was no revival because there was no repentance.  Come what may, we will serve the Lord.  Christians have a wonderful opportunity to shine at this time.

Note:  Jonathan Cahn has a great zeal about repentance, judgment, apostasy, blessings and the last days.  He rightly encourages our sin sick nation to repent.  I love his fervor for his God.  He is very unique, however, when he applies God’s plan for Israel to the United States of America and all other nations.  He considers events that happen during the “Shemitah” years, trees falling, and occurrences happening in the order of seven years as harbingers of judgment, yet I am not sure he is correct in doing so.  We all feel God’s hand of judgment on America, yet I do not believe that we can apply all the same theology and precepts  to our nation, as when the Lord worked with Israel.  Actually, when he displayed pictures of two cows with the number seven on their heads, I felt very uncomfortable.  We must ALWAYS ask ourselves “Does this Bible study go right along with the truths that are found in the word of God?”

Blessings, Pastor Steve

Donald Perkins    ~    Interview/Hagmann & Hagmann

Evangelist Donald Perkins has been speaking on prophecy for thirty four years.  He is the founder of According Two Prophecy.org.  Donald Perkins has a new DVD “Rejoicing Through The Book Of Revelation.”  The end of Revelation is eternal bliss for the redeemed.  The believer is promised a blessing for reading, hearing and studying the book.  Revelation is a book of blessing.  We are in the end times.  Jesus gave us indicators that would mark His return.  Wars, rumors of wars, famines, pestilence, earthquakes, fearful signs from the heavens.  As we near the end times, the world will look bleak, it will look worse, BUT the only answer for the world is Jesus Christ.  Israel is the time piece in God’s prophetic time clock.  Jesus:  “When these things begin to take place then look up because your redemption is drawing nigh.”  Christians should see the negative news in a positive light.  It is a motivator to reach a dying world.  The American church has lost its influence in our culture.  The church is too comfortable.  Africa is much more hungry for the Gospel.

Donald Perkins believes the rapture is at hand, and the next prophetic event to happen.  Heaven will have no sickness, sorrow or death.  We need to pray for peace in Jerusalem.  The only way for that to be answered is for Christ to come back.  America has turned its back on God, even though we were founded on Godly principles.  Our relationship with Israel is awful.  This should concern all Christians.  If we do not treat Israel right, we will be judged.  (Genesis 12:3).  We have killed 55 million babies and we have redefined marriage.  Now we have poor leaders without common sense who cannot make the right decisions.  Donald Perkins believes that America is under judgment.  Pastors need to expound on Bible prophecy.  It creates a hunger in the church for people to go out and evangelize.  It makes you a soul winner and helps the church to grow.  Jesus is the only way to salvation.  John 14:6.  Acts 4:12.  Buddha is not the way.  Mohammed is not the way.

Donald Perkins is working on a new book- “Prophecy and God’s Order Of Events.”  It is a simple overview for the common man to understand.

Russ Breault    ~    Shroud Of Turin: Past, Present, Future

Russ Breault believes there is a 90% chance that the Shroud Of Turin is authentic.

RESURRECTION!  Apologetics

Apologetics is the branch of theology that is concerned with defending or proving the truth of Christian doctrines.

A field of Christian theology which aims to present a rational basis for the Christian faith.

Why do you believe what you believe.

The Shroud falls within the field of apologetics.

The resurrection is the centerpiece of the Christian faith.  “If Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.”  I Corinthians 15:14

“If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile.”  I Corinthians 15:17

The resurrection is a settled historic fact:

  • The Shroud is not necessary for belief in the resurrection.
  • Not blind faith.
  • It is a matter of faith based on fact.
  • What are the proof points other than the Shroud?

The apostles referred to the resurrection as a factual event.  I Corinthians 15:3-6  There are about six post resurrection appearances.  The Jews never questioned the empty tomb!  They alleged the disciples stole the body.  How?  Pilate put soldiers to guard the tomb.  For what purpose?  All the apostles except John died as martyrs.  These apostles were all eye witnesses to these events.

Why Jerusalem?

  • Apostles were from Galilee.
  • Why didn’t they go home?
  • The Temple.
  • The Empty Tomb!
  • All the Romans or Jews needed to do was…
  • Produce the dead body of Jesus!
  • Resorted to persecution in AD 37.

Evidence of Transformation

  • Only 7 weeks after the resurrection, Peter with boldness stands in the Temple Court and challenges the very authorities who called for Christ’s crucifixion.
  • Not possible without complete assurance of the resurrection.  Acts 4:9-11

Martyrdom of the Apostles  –  All they had to do was deny the resurrection!

Are there non-biblical historical records that validate what the Scriptures claim?   There are over twenty non-Christian sources between 30 and 130 AD.  They all refer to Jesus as a historical figure.  Twelve mentioned his death by crucifixion.  Ten refer to His resurrection!

With or without the shroud, the resurrection is a historic fact.  The shroud can give us further insight.

Is the Shroud Proof?

  • No…not scientifically
  • The possibility is staggering
  • It could be the most important artifact on the planet!
  • The ultimate apologetic

The Shroud:  Past-Present-Future

Message through History

The image was rediscovered in Edessa, Turkey in the sixth century, described as the true likeness of Christ, not made with human hands.  The icon images all changed from this point on, imitating the shroud.  There are coins from this time with over 180 points of congruence with the shroud.

II Corinthians 4:4

Jesus is the image of the invisible God.  Hebrews 1:3

To see Jesus is to see God.

*************

Early Context

  • Roman Emperor Caligula who reigned from 37-41 A.D.  was the first to demand worship.  All other emperors who followed, demanded the same.
  • Thousands of Christians would die as martyrs refusing to worship the emperor or his image.

The Image as Theology

  • Early images based on the “True Likeness” were used to confront paganism.
  • Later use was to combat heresy and Gnosticism.  I John 4:1-3

Message to the Church today

  • Remember your first love.   Revelation 2:4
  • You are not your own; you were bought at a price.  I Corinthians 6:19-20
  • The church of God, which he purchased with his own blood.  Acts 20:28

The shroud is a relic, a symbol, a mystery and an artifact.

A Prophetic Message To The Church

The resurrection had no eye witnesses.

What happened in the tomb?  The key to the future is the past.  Matthew 28:3  The Transfiguration  Matthew 17:2

Conversion of Saul  Acts 9:3-8

Has God reserved the shroud for us in the twentieth  century as proof of the resurrection?

We are looking for the glorious appearing.  The blessed hope.  Titus 2:11-14   I John 3:2-3

The power of the resurrection is the power of the Holy Spirit within you!  The shroud represents a future event- the coming of the Lord.  Hebrews 9:28

The next event on the church calendar is the rapture of the saints.

The message of the shroud is BELIEVE!

Russ Breault    ~    The Day The Shroud Foiled Hitler

Russ is from Atlanta, Georgia.

There is a tremendous mystery about this cloth in Turin, Italy.  People have made pilgrimages there, to the Church of St. John the Baptist’s, in order to get a glimpse of the burial cloth that wrapped Jesus when He was in the tomb 2,000 years ago.  It is a fabulous mystery.  It is one single 14 foot linen cloth.  It carries both the front and back images of a man.  It has burns from a 1532 fire, patches sewn on in 1534, scorch marks and water stains.  The dorsal image reveals marks from a possible crown of thorns, scourge marks on the body going in two directions, blood from a side wound, and blood near the feet at the bottom.  Could this be the image of Jesus?  The investigation started over 100 years ago when it was photographed for the very first time.  A Three D picture of Jesus was made, based on the shroud, and it is quite amazing.

STURP Conclusions after three years analyzing the data:

“We can conclude for now that the Shroud image is that of a real human form of a scourged, crucified man.  It is not the product of an artist.  The blood stains are composed of hemoglobin and give a positive test for serum albumin.”  It is blood, not paint, with human DNA.  The image is very superficial on the cloth.

Characteristics of the Image:

  • Superficial- penetrates only top 2 micro-fibers
  • No directionality such as brush strokes
  • No outline to image
  • No cementing of fibers as with paint
  • Uniform intensity
  • No variations in density as with known art works
  • No particles between the threads (dust rubbing)
  • No capillary action (except for blood)
  • No paint binder present
  • Negative image with distance info encoded
  • Blood from actual wounds
  • AB blood type, human DNA
  • No image under the blood

How do you know it is Jesus?  Thousands of people have been crucified.  The head is punctured by thorns.  The body was scourged severely.

Identification of the Body

  • Crown of thorns
  • Severe scourging
  • Nails in the wrists
  • Nails in the feet
  • Legs not broken
  • Wounds in the side
  • Rich man’s shroud

If it is not authentic then what is it?

If it is not Jesus then who is it?

The Day The Shroud Foiled Hitler

Hitler becomes Chancellor in 1933.  The war machine will soon be in top shape.  Germany, Italy and Japan formed the Axis Powers in 1936.  September 1, 1939- World War II begins.  Hitler visited Turin, Italy in 1938.

In 1450 the Shroud became a possession of the House of Savoy.

The Shroud was taken out of Turin after Hitler inquired about it,  and placed in the Monastery at Montevergine.  They kept this secret.  The shroud was moved in September, 1939, for fear that Hitler would steal it as a religious artifact.  Pope Pius XII wanted to take the shroud to the Abby at Monte Cassino in Restored Condition.  They decided against taking it there.  The Germans surrendered in May, 1945.  Mussolini and his mistress attempted to escape to Switzerland.  They were caught, shot by firing squad and hung upside down in the public square.

Hitler was fascinated by religious artifacts such as the Spear of Longinus.  Hitler saw this spear in 1912, and was told that the spear had secret occult powers.  Hitler became mesmerized by the spear.  In March 12, 1938, Hitler rolled into Austria with no resistance, where the spear was kept.  Heinrich Himmler was the most prominent occultist in World War II.  Himmler the Monster was placed in charge of Hitler’s final solution against all Jews.  Hitler and Himmler pursued artifacts of Christ for personal power.  Hitler convinced himself that Jesus was of an Arian bloodline.

Hitler searched for the Holy Grail in order to achieve racial supremacy.  Hitler was the new King Arthur, leading his knights at the round table.  Himmler had a Grail castle.  Hitler also desired the Ark of the Covenant, as well as the shroud, and the Spear of Longinus.  Hitler had the spear and could track down the shroud.  The Nazis never found the shroud at Montevergine.  The praying monks diverted the Nazis from the shroud which was only twenty feet away from them!  The shroud was later returned to Turin on October 29, 1946.  Did Divine intervention protect the shroud?

Doc Marquis    ~    Dictators Of The Illuminati

Doc Marquis attained the exalted position of “Master Witch” in the Illuminati.  Now he is our brother in Christ.

Karl Marx  5/5/1818- 3/14/1883  The father of communism.  He was a German philosopher, economist, revolution socialist, historian, and sociologist.  His economist principles are followed today.  He wrote the Communist Manifesto.  It includes the history of class struggle.  Marx got his material from Clinton Roosevelt, a distant cousin of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  The Roosevelt Communist Manifesto gets rid of private property, asserts a heavy progressive income tax, abolishes rights to inheritance, government controls are asserted, religion and families are eliminated.  Clinton Roosevelt got his communist ideas from Dr. Adam Weishaupt’s plan for the creation of a new world order.  This makes not a communist nation, but an Illuminati nation where an elite sits at the top, and they do not even care what happens to everyone else.

Vladimir Lenin (socialist) and Josef Stalin (communist) followed the teachings of Marx.

Illuminati playing cards were made from 1982-1995.  They expain their strategies for a New World Order.  The Illuminati started World War I and eliminated Czar Nicholas II.  The war was all over oil.

Benito Mussolini was a classic dictator.  El Duce, is Italian for the boss.  He wanted fascism (like Hitler) to replace all ordered government.  He allowed no patriotism, and wanted people to worship him.  Mussolini wanted a revived Roman Empire.

Adolf Hitler

Mao Tse Tung

Fidel Castro

Hugo Chavez

Pol Pot

These men were all Illuminati dictators from the past.

***********************

“A New Dictator For A New Millennium”

Two Dictators    Hitler/Obama

Obama is a new dictator.

1)Hitler- In order to control a nation, disarm its’ citizens.  Lenin- Demand licensing in order to confiscate guns.  All dictators take guns away.  Obama  “I don’t believe people should be able to own guns.”  Hitler, Josef Stalin, Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Mao Tse Tung used children as props for gun control.  Obama does the same thing.

2)How to set up dictatorship- “Oaths of   Allegiance”  People swore obedience and their life to Hitler.  They do likewise with other dictators, including pledging allegiance to Obama.

3)How to set up your own dictatorship- Project yourself to be “as a god!”  Hitler was referred to as “God with us.”  The Pope said Mussolini was sent to redeem society.  Josef Stalin was as much a God as a dictator.  Mao Tse Tung was portrayed with a divine nimbus around him.  On the cover of Newsweek, Obama was portrayed as the Hindu goddess Kali, the Dark Mother.  Newsweek placed a halo on Obama’s head as well.  Obama is blasphemously referred to as the Second Coming.

4)Obama…..the Avatar of which religion?  He always promotes the Muslim faith.  He disparages Christianity.  He bows down to the Saudi Arabian king.  He appointed Muslim Brotherhood members to high governmental positions.  From his book Audacity Of Hope- “I will stand with the Muslims if the Political Wind shifts in an ugly direction.” -Obama

5)As a god, create your own symbol.  Lenin- the hammer and sickle.  Mao Tse Tung- the stars and nimbus.  Obama is the only president in U.S. history with his own logo (symbol).  The flag was replaced with his circle.

6)Follow the orders of the Illuminati in order to set up a new world order.  Obama called for a New World Order at the U.N. in 2009.

7)Promise them everything and when all else fails…LIE!  Lenin:  “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”  Hitler:  “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”  Obama:  “The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth, are people with something to hide.”  Obama promised 100% transparency during his presidency.  Lie of the year:  “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it.”

8)How to set up your dictators.  Get rid of the dissidents.  Stalin had prison camps known as Gulags.  Hitler had the Final Solution and Concentration Camps.  Mao Tse Tung and Fidel Castro had labor camps.  There are FEMA Concentration Camps all over America.  There are 1000 POW camps on American soil, even though there is no war going on.  Doc Marquis thinks they are planning to cause one to happen.  In a martial law event, that is where they will send all of the dissidents.  Christians are targeted!  You will be sent to a camp in order to die there.

The Antichrist will be the ultimate dictator.  He will destroy anyone who gets in his way.  He will be proclaimed to be a god.

Doc Marquis    ~    Interview/Hagmann & Hagmann

Doc Marquis was a seventh generation member of the Illuminati who converted to Christianity.  There is a carefully orchestrated plan going on in the world today that has been followed since 1776.  (Illuminati)  It is the New World Order.  The New World Order is structured after the previous world order in Europe- the monarchy, the social structure, and the religious cast.  This structure presented a small elite group at the top, and peasantry below.  The goal of the Illuminati is to resurrect this structure.  America was the Illuminati’s idea.  The Illuminati planned for America to be the new Atlantis.  America was the nation planned to bring in the New World Order.  America was planned to be the headquarters of this movement.  Doc Marquis was saved on April 15, 1979 when he went to church that day.  Christians witnessed to him for three years and it finally all came together.  Doc Marquis became a born again child of the King and has been fighting the Illuminati ever since.  The Illuminati studies the nefarious actions of dictators in order to achieve a plan for a new world order- Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro and Adolf Hitler.  The Illuminati studies these dictators, and applies their strategies to the present.  Consider our dictator Barack Hussein Obama.  He follows the plans and actions of previous dictators.  Our nation’s Healthcare system (Obamacare) is a power play  for control over money, resources and people.  It is socialism at its finest.  Hitler’s “health plan” was to eliminate the unworthy and create a master race.  When bureaucrats decide our fate, we have lost our freedoms and live under a totalitarian regime.  Obama is changing the course of American history.  He is trying to rewrite society.  Whenever the Muslim theme comes up, he is all smiles.  When Christianity is mentioned, he is full of complaints, and bashes it.  He claims to be a Christian, and his empty profession of faith was a lie and simply expedient for political achievement.  Obama loves the Muslim prayer call and calls it the “prettiest sound I ever heard.”  He wears a ring written in the Muslim language.  He disparages Christianity every chance that he gets.  Going along with Muslim customs, Obama took off his ring for Ramadan.  The New World Order/Illuminati is looking for total takeover by 2026-2028.  This is the Illuminati time line.  Doc Marquis spoke of martial law and a totalitarian grab for power.  The Illuminati will have total control by then.  They do not believe in heaven and hell, they believe in reincarnation.

The Boston Marathon Bombing was a False Flag test by the Illuminati, of implementing martial law on a group of people.  No one protested invasions of privacy.  Doc Marquis believes that 9/11/01 was another False Flag.  The Boston Bombings determined the reaction and outcome of the civilian population to a martial law event.  How did they react?  They went right along, just like a bunch of sheep.  No one stood up and said:  “No!”  People were ordered out of their homes.  It looked like a takeover and no one protested!  It was a small scale event, intended to work up to a bigger scale.  It was a test.

Doc’s Final Comments:

Look to the pre signs.  Prophecy is about to explode in a way that no one expected.  If we have a decade or two left, I will be quite surprised.  Look at the prophecies, and what happens just before them.  (Doc Marquis)

Cris Putnam    ~    The Supernatural Worldview:  A Biblical Perspective

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”  (Ephesians 6:12)

“Beware lest anyone take you captive through philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world and not according to Christ.”  (Colossians 2:8)

Supernatural  Latin: supra (above)  naturalis (nature)

Of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe; especially: of or relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devil.

Worldview   The comprehensive set of basic beliefs in which one views the world and interprets experiences.  The lens through which you view reality.

Culturally structured assumptions, values, and commitments underlying a people’s perception of reality.

*******************

Worldview Questions

1)What is really real?  (Does God exist?)

2)What is the nature of the world around us?

3)What is a human being?

4)What happens to a person after death?

5)Why is it possible to know anything at all?

6)How do we know what is right and wrong?

7)What is the meaning of human history?

 

Religious Worldview Questions

1)Who are we?

2)Where are we?

3)What is wrong?

4)What is the answer?

Naturalism is taught in our universities.  Nature is ultimate.  They deny the existence of God, angels and demons.  They deny the soul and the afterlife.

Naturalism is reductive materialism.  Everything reduces to matter.

Oneism or monism “all is one”  This is popular in the west and has eclipsed Christianity as a worldview.

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

Secular Worldview

1)Who are we?  Human beings are the primate species homo sapiens that evolved from lesser hominids (or great apes).

2)Where are we?  We are on earth, a mediocre planet amongst many that support intelligent life.

3)What is wrong?  There is a lack of education and resources.  Therefore, people are frustrated and suffer from low self-esteem.

4)What is the answer?  The solution is more education and equitable distribution of resources by a benevolent world government.

Oneism (monism)  One-ism believes that “all is one” and shares the same essential nature.  Everything shares the same essence.  In a word, everything is a piece of the divine.

New Pagan Worldview

1)Who are we?  Human beings are ultimately one and the same, there is no true distinction between male and female.

2)Where are we?  We live in a world of illusion that tells us things are separate.

3)What is wrong?  We believe the lie of separateness and have forgotten our inner divinity.

4)What is the answer?  The solution is know that you are God and that all is one, everything and everyone is ultimately divine.

Gender differences are minimized– it is all about how you feel at any given moment.

*************

The contrary to oneism is twoism.  Twoism= Super (above) natural.

Nature is created.

Spirit is ultimate.

“…because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…”  (Romans 1:25)

*********************

Biblical Worldview

1)Who are we?  Human beings are embodied spirits bearing the image of God in a body created by God.

2)Where are we?  We are on earth, an utterly unique planet in a finely tuned universe created to fantastically precise specifications to sustain intelligent life and maintained moment to moment by an omnipotent, sovereign God.

3)What is wrong?  The first humans were lured into sin.  Sin is defined as humankind’s disobedience to God and rebellion against His moral standards.

4)What is the answer?  The answer is the Gospel, the good news.  Jesus Christ, God’s unique, eternal Son, came into the world in human form and gave His life as a sacrifice for our sins.

****************

57% of Evangelicals believe many religions can lead to eternal life!  That is what our culture thinks.

Pluralism- COEXIST.  These religions are all equally valid.  Pluralism dominates in India.

Jesus  “Enter by the narrow gate.  For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”  (Matthew 7:13-14)

How can you be a Christian and deny what Jesus said?

***************

Paradigm Shift

From its founding until the 1960’s, American culture was defined by patriarchal, heterosexual and Judeo-Christian presuppositions.  In one generation, this worldview has been largely replaced by a radically egalitarian, omnigendered, pansexual, multi-religious (and One-ist) belief system that has turned our contemporary world upside down.  ~ Peter Jones  One or Two: Seeing a World of Difference

“The western world is in transition with paganism on the rise.  Spiritualism is progressively becoming a dominant religious preference within a postmodern age.”  ~  Robert H. Bennett, I Am Not Afraid: Demon Possession and Spiritual Warfare, 290-291.

2005 Gallup Poll

75% Americans believe in the paranormal.

37% believe houses can be haunted.

21% believe they can personally communicate with the dead.

*******************

2009 Pew Forum Poll

29% in touch with the deceased.  Up from 18% in 1996.

20% have been in presence of a ghost.

The number of people who have interacted with a ghost doubled between 1996 and today from 9% to 18%.

Paranormal is the New Normal

In some sectors of our society, the paranormal has become the new normal.  Indeed, tens of millions of people have rejected Christianity and replaced it with belief in ghosts, spirit guides, psychic phenomena, out-of-body experiences, and the like.  -Ron Rhodes

James Hunter-  Institutional cultural power structures only change from the top down.

Anthony Flew (an atheist who changed his mind)  “The laws of nature, life with its teleological organization, and the existence of the universe–can only be explained in the light of an Intelligence that explains both its own existence and that of the world.  Such a discovery of the Divine does not come through experiments and equations. There is a God.”

Thomas Nagel  “Mind and Cosmos: Why the Materialist Neo-Darwinian Conception of Nature Is Almost Certainly False.”

These intellectuals are moving away from Christianity, towards oneism and this new spiritualism.

Thomas Nagel  “Even though the theistic outlook, in some versions, is consistent with the available scientific evidence, I don’t believe it, and am drawn instead to a naturalistic, though non-materialist, alternative.”

Even though they see the evidence, they do not want to accept the authority of a Christian God and adhere to the lifestyle.

Flaw of the Excluded Middle

Religion- Belief in God

  • miracles
  • faith
  • sacred

Excluded Middle- Angels, Demons, Spirits

  • paranormal
  • mysticism
  • charismatic

Science- Matter, Energy, Physical Laws

  • natural order
  • observations
  • secular

Christianity has never really accounted for the excluded middle, and has given poor answers for it.  Christians should be aware of it, be aware that it is there, and know what it may imply.

Paradigm Shift

Paradigm- shifters are issues where mainstream discourse says one thing, and reality says another; and where accepting reality would radically change the way we see the world…

When it was determined that the earth was NOT the center of the universe (Copernicus), that was a huge paradigm shift.

Three Lines Of Evidence

1)Extrasensory perception

2)Near Death Experience

3)Ghosts, Spirits, Apparitions

Book by Cris Putnam

 

Pantheism   The doctrine that identifies God with the universe, or regards the universe as a manifestation of God.  God is nature or God is within nature.

Monism  A theory or doctrine that denies the existence of a distinction or duality in some sphere, such as that between matter and mind, or God and the world.

Global Consciousness Project

When human consciousness becomes coherent and synchronized, the behavior of random systems may change.  Quantum event based random number generators (RNGs) produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones.  But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions of people, our network of RNGs becomes subtly structured.  The probability is less than one in a hundred million that the effect is due to chance.

Example:  Terrorist Attacks on 9/11/01.

***************

Near Death Experience

1)Shows that your mind is not just a function of the brain.

2)Shows that you exist apart from your body.

3)The veridical NDE evidence is very convincing.

Veridical vs. Transcendental

Veridical = verifiable (this world)

Transcendental = not verifiable (other worldly)

Pam Reynolds NDE

  • Operation Standstill
  • Stop Heart
  • Drain Blood From Brain
  • Lower Body Temperature To 60 Degrees
  • Sound Emitting Earplugs Verify Unconsciousness
  • Flat EEG

Pam accurately described everything that happened during the operation from outside her body.  She also heard a conversation between doctors!  The Christian explains this in that we are a soul.  The soul exists outside of the body.  This is not a hoax and can be explained through Biblical truth.

Apparitions

Cris Putnam believes that some ghosts and apparitions are not demons.  A woman in California drove her car over an embankment and died instantly.  Her three year old son lived for a week in 103 degree heat.  Several people reported seeing a naked woman standing by the curb where the car went off of the road.  This lead the police to find the boy.  The boy said there were angels by the car every night.

Cris Putnam    ~    Interviewed By Hagmann And Hagmann

Cris Putnam has written books in conjunction with Tom Horn.  His latest book is the Supernatural World View.  Homosexuality would have been unacceptable twenty years ago.  There is a new world view.  Homosexuality used to be classified as a mental/psychological disorder, now it is something that is approved of.  How did Christians allow this?  Believers stepped out of the culture and let it happen.  Also, the homosexuals have a powerful and radical lobby.  People twenty five and younger do not see it as wrong.  They view it with tolerance and equality.  The core issue, however, is what do you mean by marriage?  It has always meant one thing-  the coupling of one man and one woman for raising families.  The homosexual agenda is really not about equality, they want to redefine what marriage is.  They adopted the civil rights language of the 60’s (bigots, prejudiced, etc.) and applied it to their perversion.  It is NOT about equal rights, it is redefining marriage and taking it away from God’s plan that has lasted for thousands of years.  The reason that such a small amount of homosexuals (3%) can overpower such a large opposition is because they are Satanically empowered.  The agenda is to radically alter the culture.  The new paganism is that all are one or are becoming one.  The Vatican and Pope Francis are likewise tolerant towards homosexuality, as well as allowing Islamic prayer services at the Vatican.  “All is one” is the new age philosophy sweeping the world.  The Evangelical Lutherans, Episcopal Church and Presbyterian Church U.S.A. are parading homosexual pastors before their congregations.  They are claiming the name Christian and denying what the Bible explicitly teaches.  All of this is setting the table for a one world religion and one world government.  Oneness teaches that everyone is going to heaven.  Cris Putnam believes paranormal activity will increase as we approach the end of the age.  Aliens and UFO’s will deceive many.

Jim Fletcher    ~    Interviewed By Doug Hagmann & Joe Hagmann

Jim Fletcher blogs about prophecy on a regular basis and has his own radio show.  Jim was a Christian editor who took a trip to Israel in 1998 and the trip had a profound effect on him.  Jim was fascinated how everything in Israel was Biblical.  When one visits Israel, they will observe a chain of places and sites from ancient times until now.

Now we observe antisemitism in Europe, Germany, the Middle East and even in America.  Why is this?  We seem to be advancing faster and farther than we thought we might.  Zechariah tells us that all nations will come up against Israel and Jerusalem, hence we should expect this.  It hurts us to see America treating Israel this way, yet Bible prophecy tells us plainly that this is what we should expect.  There is more persecution recently against Jews, and even vandalism and destruction against their synagogues.  Jews are erroneously blamed by many as the great problem in the world, just as they were in Germany in the 1930’s.  It is amazing that the Jewish people are blamed for all the problems in the world when they themselves are the ones in the cross hairs.

In the American church, we do not see the leaders stepping up and supporting Israel.  Some even cozy up to Muslim groups so these are strange times that we find ourselves in.  There is a move away from the support of Israel even among top evangelical leaders.  These are peculiar circumstances that have taken us by surprise.  Benjamin Netanyahu was recently snubbed by President Barack Obama.  President Obama is a totalitarian and acting like a totalitarian.  This is unsettling for us to see the president treat Israel this way, and we probably have not seen the last of it.  We pray that a friendly administration towards Israel would follow this administration.  Nonetheless, Jim Fletcher does see the government of the United States of America one day abandoning Israel.  At the end of the day, however, Israel is NOT the nation in trouble- it is everyone else!  The Lord has promised to preserve them and fight for them, and He has done that consistently.  Israel has won many major battles since their inception as a nation in 1948 that do not make sense in the natural.  That trend will continue.  Jim Fletcher agrees with Bill Salus, that the Psalm 83 war will pit a confederation of nations against Israel.  There will be a miraculous intervention by the Lord.  Jim Fletcher expects a coalition to attack Israel just as we are told in Ezekiel.  A third temple will be built in Israel.  The temple coalition have the materials to do so.  It could happen within our lifetime.  Once this happens, events will move quickly.  Why do the Arabs believe they own the land on the temple mount?  The Koran even says the land belongs to the Jews.  Still, the Muslims believe they must conquer this land.

Jerry Falwell and Adrian Rogers  were staunch pro Israel leaders.  Since their passing, a vacuum has been left and filled with leadership that is not pro Israel.  Jim Fletcher does not believe we have seen the end of this trend.  We are seeing this happen at an alarming rate, and we will be even more separated from Israel.  Palestinians bring in propaganda and lies to American churches about Israel.

Jim Fletcher    ~    The Plague Of Replacement Theology

…this is the view that God has replaced Israel and the Jewish people with the church.  This view used to be held in mainline churches, seminaries and in Catholicism.  Today, however, this problem has entered the evangelical community.  It spans all denominations.  Their desire is to minimize the uniqueness of the Jewish people and the state of Israel.  The issue of Israel is paramount proof that we are living in the last days.  This is a time in history where the Jews have reentered history.  This is astonishing.  A repeated theme in scripture is after the Jewish people spent a long period in exile, they will return to their ancient homeland.  In 1945 the Nazis killed six million Jews in Europe.  Three years later (1948) Israel was established, and today six million Jews are living there!  Many in the church culture in our nation are missing this point or want to miss it.  There is a sharp downturn towards the nation of Israel and Bible prophecy among evangelical leadership.

What is the answer towards antisemitism?  Why are people like this?  Why does it exist?  The hatred of the Jews is a spiritual sickness.  It has entered some of the American church.  An understanding of God’s redemptive plan is  the answer to antisemitism around the world.  Biblical illiteracy in our country today is at an all time high, it is frightening.  The view that the Bible is myth entered the blood stream of the American church in the 19th century.  This is one reason why the American church is ineffective today.  The so called nation of Palestine was created in order to get rid of the Jews.  Liberals claim the Biblical miracles are metaphors.

Replacement theology is the teaching that the Christian church has replaced national Israel regarding the plan, purpose, and promises of God.  Therefore, many of the promises that God made to Israel must be spiritualized.  Justin Martyr (AD 160) in speaking to the Jews said:  “The scriptures are not yours, but ours.”  [The Bible was written by Jews, it was lived by Jews, Jesus Christ and the apostles were Jews].  Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyon (AD 177) declared:  “Jews are disinherited from the grace of God.”  Tertullian (AD 160-230), in his treatise, “Against the Jews,” announced that God had rejected the Jews in favor of the Christians.  The Assemblies Of God and the Southern Baptist Convention are being targeted by replacement theology.  Calvary Chapel rebuffed this false theology.  Jesus was NOT a Palestinian.  He was a Jew who lived in the land of Israel.  The American church has turned their back on Israel.  They do not like Jews.  They are told they are greedy and start all of the wars in the world.  These are all of the old medieval antisemitic lies repackaged for new audiences.

Three men control the direction of the evangelical church in America.  1)Rick Warren on the west coast, 2)Bill Hybels in middle America, and 3)Andy Stanley on the east coast.  Lynne Hybels, Bill’s wife, is an enthusiastic supporter of the Palestinian narrative.  As a co founder of the Willow Creek association, she is in favor of the PLO and blames Israel for everything.  “Hank Hanegraaff’s blend of preterism and idealism produces an eschatology that is viciously anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian.  His brand of replacement theology teaches that national Israel has no future since she is replaced by the church.”  -Thomas Ice.

How do we handle this?  We need to confront error boldly.  Ask replacement theologians to explain the existence of the Jewish people in Israel today, after centuries of exile.  Use your sphere of influence in order to emphasize truth.

**********

Note:  At the June, 2016 Southern Baptist Convention in St. Louis, a small yet vocal minority promoted Replacement Theology during our business session.  By the grace of God, the overwhelming majority of the messengers at the convention did not agree with their theology in the least.  Thank you Jesus, and God bless Israel.  Pastor Steve
