I have recently been thinking about Paul’s reference to The Restrainer in his letter to the Thessalonians. It’s been a matter of much speculation over the years as to who or what is restraining the evil that will bring forth the Man of Sin.
I am not much closer to an answer, although most people believe it is either the Holy Spirit, the Church, or the Government that restrains evil, so preventing the appearance of the one we call Antichrist.
In researching the passage, however, I came across some books and website studies that helped me translate more accurately the verse that suggests the Restrainer must be “taken out of the way” in the endtimes. Continue reading →
I recently watched the video below, with some hesitation and skepticism. However, having seen it – and then researched the subject and read portions of Ernest Martin’s book (link below) I am convinced.
The original, biblical Temple was NOT situated on the Temple Mount but in the City of David alongside, by the spring Gihon.
The video – and even more so the articles and books – give verse after verse in the bible, as well as quotes from historians such as Josephus who knew the location of Herod’s Temple, to confirm the facts in the video. Continue reading →
No, this is not going to be a post about who, at this stage of history, is the coming false messiah. I’ve seen enough guessing games to last me a lifetime!
In fact, it’s the opposite.
I have witnessed a growing trend on social media, where people – even non christians and agnostics – tend to label every sinister or evil person as the “antichrist”. These people have little to no biblical understanding of who he will be, in reality. Continue reading →
In October 2017, an anonymous 4chan account began making cryptic posts about earth-changing political and judicial events to come. (He’s been wrong countless times! See list of failed predictions here) However, people have speculated about who was behind the account that has come to be known as QAnon.
Some even believe that Q is President Trump (which is very doubtful) or a high-clearance member of the White House (possibly). Continue reading →
People Are Burning 5G Masts because of Virus Fears
Answering a Question about 5G and COVID-19
This helpful post from Creation.com seeks to bring some clarity and scientific background to the current idea that 5G wireless technology is causing or exacerbating the novel coronavirus. See original here: https://creation.com/5g-covid
G. W. from Australia wrote in with a question about coronaviruses and 5G wireless technology. “I would like Robert Carter’s biological view on these two assertions”:
that Coronavirus looks like a viral response to respiratory difficulty, and
that 60 GHz radio frequencies can reduce oxygen uptake thus causing that response in the lungs.
I have a congregant who is alarmed. Snopes is quiet and I’m unsure where to look for credibility. (My Note: At this present date, Snopes is no longer silent on the topic, as there is a very helpful article found HERE – worth reading!)
The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is one of the fastest growing and insidious movements in the visible church. One of the ways to identify leaders and their followers (NARites) in this movement, is by paying attention to the terminology or buzzwords they use.
Some of the words in this list are biblical, but the meaning and application are far removed from what scripture actually teaches (biblical terminology to gives credence to their aberrant doctrines) Certain words used in the NAR appear to be sci-fi or computer buzzwords, and their applications originate in the minds of the false apostles and prophets that drive this movement. The words listed are not exclusive to the NAR, but occur in some Charismatic, Word of Faith and other movements. Continue reading →
In the early 80’s I bought two books by Mary Stewart Relfe that dealt with the coming 666 “mark of the beast” endtime money system and allied technologies, such as bar codes.
Bar codes, you see, had a start/middle/stop signal for the reader that was also, coincidentally, the signal for the number 6. So, three sixes.
That has never stopped me using products with a barcode. Now, if you ask me do I think barcodes will eventually be part of the antichrist deception of the endtimes, my answer would problably be yes. But still today I have no worries about the barcodes on everything in my fridge; I think nothing of it. Continue reading →
You might be wondering about the title of this post. I have linked together this present crisis with the time of Passover, which this year begins at sundown on Wednesday, April 8th and ends at sundown on Thursday, April 16th. Thus this year it encompasses the festival we know as Easter.
While those who celebrate Passover recall the blood of the lambs that saved the people of God from death, those who celebrate Easter remember the Lamb of God whose blood offers salvation to any who willingly accept its redemptive power.
In the one case it was the blood of a lamb dashed onto the lintels that caused the Lord to “pass over” the lives inside, averting death. In the other case, it was the shed blood of the sacrifice of Jesus, the Lamb of God, that provided a covering from eternal death.
Passover and Easter are therefore twin festivals, and have a common theme, but what about my mention of the present pandemic? Continue reading →
I have been praying much about what to say in my blog during this pandemic. I wanted to offer some hope, some true word of God, some comfort, some direction – but I have been drawing a blank each time.
It’s not that there isn’t hope, faith and comfort aplenty in the bible, but I wanted to share something relevant and specific, and not just general platitudes.
I’d like to tell you that, as Christians, we will be protected and spared from all suffering but (unlike some false teachers in the churches) I’m not going to lie to you and tell you you’re immune. Continue reading →
Sometime around the tragedy that was 9/11, I started work on a series about the Four Seals of Revelation Chapter Six. Little did I know that events would subsequently occur that seemed to add confirmation upon confirmation that the four seals were actually being loosed in our day.
Today I have updated the series, in particular the article on the Fourth Seal, to cover the news of a disease that is now affecting most of the world – the coronavirus known as COVID-19.
For those of you not familiar with the articles, here are my website links:
Please bear in mind that most of this series of articles was written many years ago. I have made some guesses, based on prophecy and known events, especially with regard to Israel. We need to keep watching and praying because there may be much more to come – God willing!
We may all be aware, at least to some extent, of misleading and unbiblical movements swarming over the Church today, including Prosperity Teaching (Word of Faith) and NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) but fewer have considered the movement loosely called “Progressive Christianity”.
The video I want to share with you is an hour long but is very much worth your while setting aside time to view it. The speakers clearly and with much evidence and personal experience show what is being taught, and show why it’s affecting new converts as well as older Christians.
The bottom line is this: it is a teaching that so downplays the need for salvation, and so removes faith in Jesus, the bible and the work of the Cross, that it amounts to a 21st century heresy. Continue reading →
I once attended a seemingly good evangelical church in the 80’s. However, I had cause to sit down and go silent when they began introducing songs about the Church’s victory over the world and specifically the rise of “Joel’s Army“.
They rush on the city, they run on the wall Great is the army that carries out His word Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion Sound the alarm in My Holy mountain!Continue reading →
The story of Judas Iscariot and his betrayal of Jesus may seem like a “one-off” in history, never to be repeated. Yet there is a way of seeing this man and what he did in a broader sense as the ultimate betrayal of the Body of Christ now on earth.
The path that Jesus took towards the cross, in perfect submission to the will of the Father, can be seen as the path his Body must take at the End. And, the motivation and actions of Judas can been seen as the blueprint for another more widespread betrayal in the last days. Continue reading →
I’m not a follower of prophecies and visions, especially in these days when so many bizarre “words from God” are nonsense, and easily disproved. Today these so-called prophesies emphasise the victory and glory of the Church, and its preparation for a global revival. However, there ARE a few genuine instances of prophecy that have stood the test of time. After all, the bible says that the hallmark of a genuine prophet is that what is said comes to pass. (Deut. 18:22; Jer. 28:9; Ezek. 33:33). Continue reading →
When Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, Church Watch Central predicted that the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) Apostles and Prophets would try to gain access to this ‘Christian’ President. Lance Wallnau and other ‘prophets and apostles’ have since labelled Trump as ‘Gods Chaos candidate’, proving the obvious nature and motivation of the NAR.What no one could have predicted was President Trump’s recent appointment of the self-proclaimed NAR apostle (and notorious scam artist) Paula White to be his aide and ‘spiritual advisor’!
The outcome of this now sees the New Apostolic Reformation apparently fulfilling one of its ‘Seven Mountain’ mandates, having ‘dominion’ over the United States, primarily through the White House and the Oval Office (called ‘The Government/Law Mountain’). Continue reading →
1 John 4:8: Whoever does not love, does not know God, because God is love.
God doesn’t just love as an attribute or a choice (as if his love might be fickle and some days he is judgmental or angry instead) but God IS love. Love is God’s nature. Knowing that, everything makes sense – creation, heaven and hell, salvation, and day-to-day life too.
There are some things the bible describes as essential aspects of God’s nature, and they are the exact opposite of Lucifer’s nature.
God is Love(1 John 4:8) – Satan is accusation, hatred and murder (1 Peter 5:8)
God is Truth(John 14:6–7) – Satan is a liar and the father of lies (John 8:44)
God is Light(1 John 1:5) – Satan is darkness (Colossians 1:13 and Ephesians 6:12)
God is Life(John 11:25-26) – Satan is death (Hebrews 2:14)
Isaiah 2:5: “Come and let us walk in the light of the Lord.”
I just went to turn on my laptop, and today (unusually) the sun was shining right on it very brightly through the window. As the very bright rays of the sun hit the laptop I saw something I don’t normally see – that it was covered in fingermarks and dust. Continue reading →
Jesus referred to two events to illustrate the condition of the world just before his return: Noah’s flood and the destruction of Sodom in Lot’s day. What are the similarities, and what can we learn for ourselves about these events?
As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. [Matthew 24:37-39] Continue reading →
