This website is divided into four (4) distinct parts: The "article section" forms the FIRST feature of the website; most likely you were initially drawn to this site by these articles which various other sites reference; this section is further divided into two parts: a MAIN ARTICLE section and what we call a BANNER ARTICLE section. The MAIN ARTICLE section unites the PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES with the events of the day (there are over 350 MAIN ARTICLES on this website); the BANNER ARTICLE section reinforces the MAIN ARTICLE section with articles from other sources - mainly secular ones - and confirms what Jesus said about many unbelievers: "The children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light." (Luke 16:8) The SECOND part is our documentary, Greed Is Good; it will give you an "overview" regarding the iniquitous nature of the American New World Order System that you may have never considered previously. The THIRD feature of our website is our book, The New Antipas Papers; IT IS CENTRAL TO ALL THAT WE SAY AND TEACH ON THIS WEBSITE; it will take you on an astonishing and detailed journey into what the Bible says regarding the "End of Days" - a journey that I think will amaze you. The FOURTH feature of this website is a second book entitled, What To Do as the End Approaches; this book will give you solid, biblical answers as to what you should be doing as THAT day approaches.

THE FALSE FLAG OPERATION OF THE NEO-NAZIS AND THE U.S. IN UKRAINE

By S.R. Shearer
April 3, 2014

A "false flag operation" is defined as a government attacking its own people, and then blaming others in order to justify going to war against the people it blames.

AMERICA'S AMORAL OIL BARONS
VERSUS
VLADIMIR PUTIN & THE RUSSIAN BEAR

By S.R. Shearer
March 23, 2014

In November of last year (2013) Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovych rejected the heavy pressure that had been placed upon him by the United States and the E.U. to join a far-reaching partnership with the European Union; soon thereafter demonstrations were organized against him. The Western media painted these demonstrations as a spontaneous outburst of righteous anger by peaceful, freedom-loving Ukrainians...

However, these demonstrations were anything but spontaneous; American NGO's in fact had organized them...

"In the wake of the recent unrest in Ukraine, Jewish residents of Kiev have received threats by anti-Semites ... Local authorities have been made aware of these threats, the report said, but nothing is being done. In recent days, some of the protesters reached Jewish areas of Kiev and vandalized shops. It was also reported that many Jewish residents are leaving the city because of the unrest."

THE MANY DAUGHTERS OF THE WHORE OF REVELATION 17

By S.R. Shearer
March 1, 2014

What we today call "Christianity" in the United States is NOT Christianity at all; it is in fact the antithesis of everything for which Christianity stands; indeed, it bears a striking and very foreboding resemblance to the "religion" that animated Hitler's Third Reich - and so much so that IF CHRISTIANS IN AMERICA WERE TO LOOK AT THEMSELVES IN THE MIRROR, WHAT THEY MIGHT FIND GAZING BACK AT THEM ARE THE GHOSTS OF ADOLF HITLER AND HEINRICH HIMMLER.

CHRISTIANS IN THE
TRIBULATION PERIOD

Examining the matter of Christian immunity during the testimony of the Two Witnesses

By S.R. Shearer
February 16, 2014

In our last main article - "WHAT, ME WORRY?" – we established the fact that soon – very soon now – a military dictatorship will be instituted in the United States: Chapter 17 of the Book of Revelation 17 establishesthis as FACT. America's financial elites are being inexorably propelled in this direction as a result of the severe pressure they are under to move quickly in order to stave off what amounts to be a socialist revolution against them – a naked reality reinforced by the election of a SOCIALIST mayor in New York City, Bill de Blasio; after all, AS NEW YORK GOES, SO GOES THE NATION; all this to say nothing of the socialist policies of the Obama administration – which remain very popular despite the growing unpopularity of Obama himself.

As we indicated in our last "main article," "Pressure Is Building Toward a Prophetic Breaking Point," the United States is moving ever more swiftly toward the establishment of a right-wing military dictatorship in the United States. Exactly how that will occur is left to conjecture; but that it will happen is a FACT assured to us by the Scriptures; in addition, the Scriptures similarly vouchsafe to us the nature of the coming dictatorship...

PRESSURE IS BUILDING TOWARD

By S.R. Shearer
January 19, 2014

As described by the title of this article, a "BREAKING POINT" is (a) the point at which physical strength gives way under pressure, and (b) the point at which a situation becomes critical; both descriptions are apropos insofar as the "end of the age" is concerned. Ever since 1948 (the year Israel was once again established as a nation) the world has been moving at an ever accelerating rate toward "the end of days" – ie., the beginning of the Tribulation Period...

The haze that surrounds the "goings-on" of the American super-state in Syria has by now become so dense that it is all but impossible to see through it; at best, one can only discern dim shadows and faint silhouettes – shadows and silhouettes that seem to be at war with one another. And that's exactly what's happening – although both sides are loath to admit as much; hence the existence of this thick miasma – a miasma shaped by both Obama and his enemies in the nation's military-industrial complex in order to hide what they are up to...

NACHT UND NEBEL

[Night & Fog]

By S.R. Shearer
September 15, 2013

The German expression, Nacht und Nebel, means "night and fog." It is a reference to a magical enchantment in Richard Wagner's opera, Das Rheingold. The term references the so-called "Tarnhelm enchantment" by which truth and reality are hidden behind a dark haze that makes it all but impossible for most persons to make out the facts that Nacht und Nebel are obscuring.

The similarities between the death of Gary Webb and the death of Michael Hastings are remarkable.

A WORD FROM S.R. SHEARER

I want to take this opportunity to apologize for "disappearing" over the past several weeks and months: I have been extremely ill, and so much so that I have hardly been able to get out of bed.

LISTENING TO THE LORD

Many of you have written to us wondering why we have not as yet "gotten on the road." Well, I can tell you, it has not been for lack of trying. When we traded our car for our motor home, we knew that it would take a lot of work (and money) to get a twenty-year old motor home "road-ready" - but we simply had no idea of the difficulty we were facing.

KNOWLEDGE THAT DOES NOT
PRODUCE ACTION IS WORTHLESS

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

Very obviously, Christians are facing a time of crisis, one which all Christians - if they really are Christians - have long expected, and one which shouldn't come as a surprise - CHURCH APOSTASY: the refusal of the church to see itself any longer as a "citizen" of a heavenly kingdom having nothing to do with this world ["My kingdom is not of this world ... my kingdom ... (comes) not from hence." (John 18:36)] to seeing itself, rather, as a "citizen" or "friend" of this present evil world and all that such a thing portends - from the church's involvement in the world's political affairs to its involvement in death squad activity in the name of God in South and Central America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, etc. ["...Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God" ( James 4:4)]. But, again, why should we as Christians be surprised by all this? - isn't this what the Bible said would happen? - "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (i.e., the day of the rapture and the resurrection) shall not come, except there come a falling away (i.e., apostasy) first ..." (2 Thess. 2:3)

WHAT THEN SHOULD WE DO?

What then should we do with regard to this crisis? Menachem Begin, the former Prime Minister of Israel, faced a similar crisis in his life and in the life of the Jewish People in the early 1940s. The crisis he faced had to do with whether or not he should wait for the end of World War II and the plodding negotiations of Jewish "mainline moderates" such as Dr. Chaim Weizmann and the World Zionist Organization to press the British Mandate Authority to facilitate Jewish immigration to Palestine (all this in addition to having to rely on the maddening timidity of the mainline Jewish defense organization - the Haganah - to secure their safety in Palestine), OR whether he should join up with the radicals, Vladimir Jabotinsky, and the Irgun Zvai Leumi - and hang the "niceties of diplomacy."

He finally chose Jabotinsky and the Irgun! - and he never looked back. Years later, in remarking on the single-mindedness of the organization he finally joined - i.e., the Irgun - he said: "In times like those, there is no greater force than people who (1) have the ability to see beyond the concerns of daily life, despite the sometimes very pressing nature of those concerns, (2) who possess the capacity for self-sacrifice, and (3) who are willing to get involved!" Begin believed that the rest didn't matter! And so it is with us today, the rest doesn't matter! - one's natural talent, one's standing within the church, one's ability to speak, one's wealth, one's education, one's personality, the number of mistakes one has made in his or her life, one's age, one's sex, etc. - all of that is inconsequential in comparison.

A CALL TO ACTION

This website and the New Antipas Papers are first and foremost a call to action; a call to the kind of people who joined themselves to Vladimir Jabotinsky and the Irgun; to the kind of people who possess vision and the capacity for self-sacrifice. It's a call for them to get involved! And to do it NOW! - before it's too late. To wait is to make prophecy of no effect - after all, prophecy is meaningless to those who refuse to do anything about it.

Prophecy is nothing more than a roadsign telling us of the danger that's ahead and warning us to take corrective action BEFORE we get to the danger. If we do nothing until we finally get there, it will be too late. Thus, if the only reaction this website and the NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS can elicit in you is "Wow! - what a wonderful website and what a wonderful book" - then we have utterly failed in what we set out to do, and you have missed the point of this website and the book altogether. Knowledge which does not produce action is worthless!

It is to those persons who possess the willingness to get involved that we now turn and to whom we now direct the following remarks: first, there are many things that will hinder you from getting involved - and sadly, your greatest hindrance will probably be those dear Christian brothers and sisters who claim to see what you see, but who caution "moderation." Those who do, however, are usually people who have a stake in the status quo; in other words, there's a reason behind their so-called "moderation" - they probably have a lot more to lose than you do. The fact of the matter is, not many rich, not many successful, not many "high church officials" will abandon "moderation" - they have too much to lose. This is why Jesus said, "... It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a [sewing] needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God" (Matt. 19:24), and why Paul said, "For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called ..." (1 Cor. 1:26)

SPIRITUAL COWARDS

Mostly, those who call for "moderation" are people who - while they might see objectively what you're talking about and who might even find it stimulating to sit in the safety of their living rooms for hours on end discussing this or that "end-times scenario" - will go ballistic if you actually suggest doing something about it; for instance, demonstrating against those churches that support the American New World Order System. [Please see that portion of our website, "Taking the Gospel of the Kingdom to the Poor."]

That's when the "moderates" panic! That's when people get labeled a "Jim Jones," a "Branch Davidian," a reckless and irresponsible radical, an "Unloving Person."

But look beyond the labels and you might see something else at work here! - a selfish effort by the "moderates" to shame you into silence and inaction. Why? - because if such thinking were to really catch on, they will be shown to be what they really are - spiritual cowards who have too much at stake in this world and in the status quo of today's church to get involved - whether it be pastors who have their reputations and pay checks to guard, ministry leaders who depend on "compromised" sources of income, wives who have their "nests" to protect from the "irresponsibility" of a husband who has hit the "nut circuit," Christian business people and professionals who have their "reputations" to protect, etc. - and in order to hide that fact, they are willing to stop at nothing to put the "radicals" to an open shame.

"Moderates" are the people who are given to writing time-consuming memoranda, holding "bigwig" conferences, "reasoning" with the opposition, discussing things endlessly, and not for the purpose of finding out the truth, but of "buying time" and "confusing the issue" - "Did so and so really say such and such? - I don't care whether a thousand witnesses heard him - let's find out what really happened." The object here, of course, is not to get to the bottom of what happened - after all, if a thousand witnesses won't suffice, nothing will. The real object is to get everything so tied up in red tape that by the time it's "sorted out," everyone is gone.

TO THE "MODERATES," WE
WOULD SIMPLY SAY THIS ...

To the "moderates," we would simply say this: What does one do with people who purposefully are leading the church into apostasy and into an alliance with Christians who believe that they can become equal with Christ in the Godhead (such as Bennie Hinn, James Robison, etc.)? - Reason with them? What's there to reason about? These people know what they're doing! - and you are not the first to question them on these matters. They've heard all the arguments before. [Please see our articles, "Luciferic Christianity" and "The God-Men of the American New World Order System."]

What value is there in meeting with such people? What does one say to a Paul Crouch, for example, when he says that those who are standing against the church's alliance with the kind of leaders who involve themselves in the great wickedness of "Luciferic Christianity?" should be shot? Discuss with him the kind of gun that is best for such a purpose? Negotiate with him over the ammunition that should be used?

What utter nonsense!" - after all, what's at stake here is the church's soul! There is nothing to negotiate about! And if those you love in the church refuse to go along, and you think to stay for their sake, be assured, you'll accomplish nothing - you're "going" will accomplish more than your "staying" ever could by showing them by deeds rather than words how serious matters really are. Remember, what's at stake here is eternity! - your eternity!

AN UNFORTUNATE REALITY

At the heart of the confusion that exists today within Christendom is the presence on this earth at this time in history of an entity - the American New World Order System - that falsely claims to represent Christ on earth. [Please see our article, "The Rich Have Seized Control of the Church."]

It is exactly the presence of this entity that is the cause of such confusion among the unsaved poor today - precisely those to whom Jesus came to save. It is no accident that Jesus said:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised ..."

Naturally enough - and notwithstanding this verse and countless others like it - the claim of most American evangelical leaders that the American New World Order System represents Christ's kingdom on earth can only be a source of great confusion to the poor of the earth; a "turn-off" to the destitute of this world who see the American New World Order System and the church that justifies it as frauds.

The poor cannot be blamed for seeing the Christianity of today being preached by America's evangelical leaders as a rich, white man's religion having NOTHING to do with them. What do the poor of the world want to do with a religion that justifies the very system - i.e., the American New World Order System - that oppresses and brutalizes them? [We urge you to read our article, "A Woman Riding A Beast Going Forth Conquering and to Conquer" for insight as to how this partnership between the rich of the world and Christianity works.]

GOD'S ANSWER TO THIS DECEPTION

The "Gospel of the Kingdom" is God's answer to this deception. It has been calculated to rip away the mask of piety that the religious FRAUDS who wickedly justify this system hide behind - for example, Christian leaders such as the late D. James Kennedy, Charles Stanley, C. Peter Wagner and John Hagee - while at the same time revealing the evil, avaricious "money-grubbing" that's really at the heart of the American Empire, and that animates ALL those associated with it. [Please see "The Superman Theology of the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles" for a discussion of the theology and eschatology that animates people such as John Hagee.]

Once these frauds - and the system they excuse - are exposed for what they actually are, then the poor can see Christianity for what it really is: God's way of salvation for them, and see Christ for whom He really was (is) - a POOR carpenter who said of Himself:

"... Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." (Luke 9:58) -

A Man who rather than placating the rich (as the leaders of today's church so shamefully do), said of them,

"... Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

"And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a [sewing] needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (Matt. 19:23-24) [Please see our article, "The Rich Have Seized Control of the Church."]

It is precisely about the "Gospel of the Kingdom" that Jesus said:

"This GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." (Matt. 24:14) [We urge you to see our articles, "The Kingdom of God Is at Hand," "The Good News of the Coming Kingdom," "The Principles of the Kingdom" and "The American new World Order System Must Give Way to the Kingdom of Heaven."]

The "end," thus, is tied to the preaching of the "Gospel of the Kingdom" to all nations.

And He went on in the very same discourse to say:

"Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

"Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods." (Matt. 24:46-47)

Of course, the work will be dangerous! - there is no doubt about that. Jesus said:

"Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

"But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues [in today's parlance, 'church meeting halls'];

"And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles [i.e., unbelievers]." (Matthew 10:16-18)

Pretty frightening - especially for the poor and inarticulate; but Jesus said:

"... when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

"For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you." (Matthew 10:19-20)

YOUR PREACHING WILL
ACCOMPLISH TWO THINGS

Jesus said:

"What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops." (Matthew 10:27)

You are not called to be subtle about the "Gospel of the Kingdom." Your preaching will accomplish two things:

  • It will draw some to you - those whose hearts God has prepared for such a day, and you will be surprised to find out who these people are.

  • It will drive others away from you, and so much so that the Bible says, "And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake ..." (Matthew 10:21-22)

Your job is to take the first group and become a shepherd to them. Begin meeting with them, and let your meetings be seen of all men. Jesus said:

"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

"Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 5:14-16)

Insofar as the second group is concerned, Jesus said:

"When they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come." (Matthew 10:23)

And He went on to say:

"The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

"It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?" (Matthew 10:16-25)

Finally, Jesus said to His disciples to whom He had committed the "Gospel of the Kingdom:"

"TAKE NO THOUGHT FOR YOUR LIFE, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

"Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

"And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:

"And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

"Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

"Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

"(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER KNOWETH THAT YE HAVE NEED OF ALL THESE THINGS." (Matthew 6:25-32)

And so I now earnestly pray for you, just as Paul prayed so many years ago, that -

"... the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto YOU the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:

"The eyes of YOUR understanding being enlightened; that YE may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his INHERITANCE IN THE SAINTS,

"And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to US-WARD who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,

"Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,

"Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

"AND HATH PUT ALL THINGS UNDER HIS FEET, AND GAVE HIM TO BE THE HEAD OVER ALL THINGS TO THE CHURCH,

"Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." (Ephesians 3:10, 17-23)
