THE TRIAL (OR TRIBULATION) BEGINS
[Please see our article, "The World Is to Be Judged."]
AntiChrist and the World System of Mankind; Specifically, The American New World Order System
GOD SEATED ON HIS THRONE IN THE HALL OF JUDGMENT
[Move mouse over the man being judged]
THE CHAMBER IS PREPARED: God takes His seat in the HALL OF JUDGMENT. The world System of Mankind [ie., The American New World Order and its leader, the antiChrist] is brought into the HALL OF JUDGMENT to stand before God.
THE ANGELS GATHER AROUND
AND TAKE THEIR SEATS
In this trial three figures are to play very prominent rolls;
THE TWO OLIVE TREES
THE TWO LAMPSTANDS
God’s witnesses against the world system of mankind – that is to say, the American New World Order System
We urge you to take the time to study for yourself the Scriptures concerning the Two Witnesses; settle this matter in your own mind. Please see Chapter VI of the New Antipas Papers, "The Distinction Between Israel and the Church;" Please also see Part 6 of Chapter VIII of the New Antipas Papers, "The Two Witnesses" and Part 7, "Parables and Ciphers;" finally, please see Chapter X of the New Antipas Papers, "The 144,000 of the Last Half of the Seventieth Week"
[More about the 144,000 in a later article.]
From LEFT TO RIGHT: Joel Osteen, Alex Jones, Tim LaHaye, C. Peter Wagner, Mike Bickle, John Hagee, Francis Frangipane, Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Cindy Jacobs - etc., all of whom are connected to Dominionism and believe it is possible to save America for "Christ and the Church." [Please see our article, "Dominionism: The Theology of Today's Anti-government Movement."]
YOUR FATE IN ETERNITY, DEAR CHRISTIAN, WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE ALLIANCE YOU MAKE WITH THE ENTITIES LISTED ABOVE; SPECIFICALLY, IF YOU CHOOSE TO ALLY YOURSELF WITH THE APOSTATE CHURCH (2 above) OR THOSE WHO HATE THE JEWS AND THE STATE OF ISRAEL (3 above) YOU WILL BE JUDGED WITH THESE ENTITIES WHEN JUDGMENT FINALLY COMES.
Concerning this matter, Jesus warned:
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:21-23)
The meaning of these verses is that it's not the fact that you claim to be a Christian (even Trumps claims to be a Christian), but that if you truly are, it will MANIFEST itself in the way you act and in the way you live.
The concept that Christians can fall victim to this warning of Scripture seems impossible for most Christians to comprehend. BUT THIS WILL CERTAINLY BE THE FATE OF THOSE CHRISTIANS WHO – FOR ANY REASON – ALLY THEMSELVES WITH THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM.
These are Christians like DC (meaning "daughter of Christ) Peterson (see (1 below) and Tim (see 2 below) who have written me saying in part:
"Now I have read below and it shows me that you are doing in a greater way the same things I have been doing by informing my people the danger around us Politically, Mentally, Spiritually, Physically, Emotionally and Financially.
"I have been researching and sending all the information like what you have so affectively written about to my people who are Christians and Pastors but before I began receiving your information.
I do not know how I got on your list but perhaps it was in one of my searches that I found Antipas.
"I know what you know but I have been upset because there are no other options but Trump in that both the religions right and the Christians find themselves all heaped together, lacking other options. This is why I have been hard on you because if one does not choose Trump then passively one is choosing Hilary.
"Thanks for your information as one warrior to another.
While I deeply appreciate "DC's" comments regarding both me and Antipas Ministries, I must report that she is in grave danger of falling into the deception of the "end of days." If "DC" continues in this vein she cannot help but be drawn ever more into the web of deceit that is being woven around God's people who for any reason ally themselves with Trump.
If you get entangled in a black widow spider’s web, you will surely be bitten.
"Hi guys - I would urge you to relax a little and be calm about Trump. We
will see that he is the Anti-Christ if he becomes such later. We cannot
stop that nor determine to choose or destroy the Anti-Christ. In the
mean time he has a wonderful desire, ability, and practice of helping
"Remember, God will do as He says, and what He says and said, He will do.
There is nothing we can do about it. Somehow so very many Christians
think prophecy can be reversed. That is just silly. I'm not saying you
feel this way but am applying consideration of stopping Trump and end
time events to many Christians today. I've read your explanation in
regard to this. Bless you!
"Thank for listening,
"Your old friend, Tim
Again, like "DC," Tim totally underestimates the captivating power of Satan's web of deceit that is being woven around them.
Once you get caught in the spider’s web, the more you struggle to free yourself,
the more you will be entrapped – until finally you are hopelessly ensnared
in the spider’s cocoon to be eaten at his leisure
Brothers and sisters, pay close attention here: THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM IS THE CREATION OF THE WORLD SYSTEM OF MAN, over which Satan reigns. It is the very system that has been brought before Cod's tribunal to be judged. You cannot be a friend of this world in any sense without suffering the same judgment as this defendant.
SATAN AND THE AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM
[Please see our article, “The Third World as a Model for the American New World Order System.”]
This is very serious stuff! - the Apostle James calls those who wish to be friends with the world --– in other words, those who support the Trump presidency --– "ADULTERERS" and "ADULTERESSES:"
"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 SHALL BE THE ENEMY OF GOD. (James 4:4)
THE CHURCH: THE SILVER CORD
OF GOD’S TESTIMONY ON EARTH
The history of what we today call the church is a sordid and shameful history, every bit as sordid and shameful as the history of Israel. It is full of murder, lust, envy, money-grubbing, animosity, sexual perversion and on, and on, and on.
THE SILVER CORD OF GOD’S GRACE AS MANIFESTED
IN THE SAINTS OF CHRIST’S REAL FOLLOWERS
But in the midst of all this evil, hatred and lust there has been a silver cord of God's grace as MANIFESTED in the lives of Christ's GENUINE followers who in all times and in all places have existed. These are the true WITNESSES of God, AND IT IS EXACTLY THESE TRUE FOLLOWERS OF CHRIST WHO IN THE TRIAL THAT IS NOW "BEING PLAYED OUT" BEFORE US WHO WILL CONSTITUTE THE ASSEMBLY OF THE CHURCH AS ONE OF THE TWO WITNESSES DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE TRIBULATION. These are people such as Paul of Tarsus, Savonarola, Dom Hélder Câmara, Hudson Taylor, CT Studd, Johannas Guttenberg, those Coptic Christians who died recently at the hands of Islamists in Libya, those Christians that brought the Cherokee Nation to Christ and then chose to accompany them when they were mercilessly exiled by the US government into lands that could barely support life, etc., etc.
As they testify against Trump's American New World Order System they will be seen to MANIFEST themselves as the TRUE CHURCH OF GOD; as one of the Two Witnesses listed in Revelation 11.
And what glory that will be: indeed, concerning this MANIFESTATION, the Bible says:
"For the earnest expectation of the creature [creation] waiteth for the MANIFESTATION of the sons of God." (Romans 8:19)
What does this exactly mean? – It means that all of creation is waiting for Christ's true followers to MANIFEST themselves as His genuine followers. And how exactly will this MANIFESTATION take place? – by being numbered in the assembly of the true church.
These are those Christians whose testimony stands in stark contrast to the testimony of the get-rich Christians of today – people such as Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyers, Kenneth Copeland, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, etc. [Please see our articles, "Bob Jones, John Wimber and the Vineyard Christian Fellowships;" see also "The American Empire: The Corporate / Pentagon / CIA / Missionary Alliance."]
THE CHURCH ASSOCIATED WITH THE TWO WITNESSES AS OPPOSED
TO THE APOSTATE CHURCH OF THE NEW AMERICAN WORLD SYSTEM
A WARNING AGAINST BEING DECEIVED
NOTE: It is extremely important at this point to describe what the word "APOSTASY" means; IT MEANS TO "FALL AWAY." Given this meaning, it is impossible to believe that the term "APOSTATE Christianity" refers to unbelievers, for how would it be possible for an unbeliever to "fall away" from something he had never before embraced? - that is to say, Christianity. Put another way, how would it be possible for a man to "fall away" from the second story of a building if he had never been up there before? - but only on the ground floor. Very obviously, then, we are talking here of a form of Christianity that at one time was Christian in the fullest meaning of that word. [Please see our article, "Preparing the Groundwork for the Emergence of the antiChrist: CUFI: Promoting Israel's Agreement with Hell."]
NOTE The words "... if it were possible ..." in connection with Matthew 24:24 do not appear in the original texts - which would imply that some (many?) Christians will indeed be deceived.The Bible says:
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [i.e., the day of the rapture and resurrection] shall not come, except there come a falling away [i.e., apostasy] first ..." (2 Thess. 2:3)
In various places and in diverse ways the Scriptures warn about the dangers that will encompass the saints of God at the end of the age - so much so that the "very elect" shall be "DECEIVED" (Mat. 24:24).
I Tim. 4:1-2 is very specific about this matter; it explicitly confirms the special cause of the peril to the church in the closing days of this era, and how Satan will break in upon her members, and by DECEPTION beguile many:
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
"Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron ..." (I Tim. 4:1-2)
The word hypocrisy here means to present a lie as the truth.
The peril to the church at the close of the age, then, is from people who present a lie as the truth; from hypocrites who claim to be one thing, but who in reality are something else altogether; people who pass themselves off as Christians, but who are, nonetheless, unalterably opposed to God - much as Judas was.
Trump says he has nothing to repent from. Now
how can a true Christian make such a statement?
The peril from such men concerns every true Christian in the "Latter Days."
The prophecy declares that -
But such appearances (in the sense that the leaders of today's apostate church teach – ie., that one's wealth is a testimony as to how much God loves you) are no guarantors of the truth: all teaching must be judged against the Written Word. It's in this sense that one can ask himself, how do such hypocrites and apostates deal with the words of the prophet Hababkkuk? -
"Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
"Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3:17-18)
Again I say one's wealth and success in life are not adequate warrants for being a real Christian. Such thinking has its foundation in the prevalent idea that everything that Satan does is manifestly evil, the truth not being realized that he works under cover of light.
"And no marvel (ie., wonder); for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light." (2 Cor. 11:14)
Satan is transformed into an angel of light.
We repeat, there is only one principle for testing the source of all doctrine - and that is not "good intentions," but the Written Word, the Bible.
I say again: apostasy is not necessarily false doctrine and/or sin - though it can be this, and there can be no question that these things inevitably follow in the wake of apostasy - but rather it is, in the first instance, the FALLING AWAY of Christians from a view of themselves as citizens of Christ's heavenly kingdom to a view of themselves as citizens of the kingdom of this world, which world is under the control of Satan Again. the Bible warns us:
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [i.e., the day of the rapture and resurrection] shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY [i.e., apostasy] first ..." (2 Thess. 2:3)
AS ALIENS TO THIS WORLD
If we truly are aliens to this world, as the Scriptures so plainly declare we are, what should we have to do with its politics? - nothing of course. Nonetheless, that's what millions and millions of Christians in the United States have involved themselves in as they are seen flocking to Trump's banner as Tim and "DC" are doing. But, again, if we are truly aliens to this world, why should we seek to involve ourselves in the politics of what amounts to be a "foreign country?" To do so diverts us from the single mission that we have been Scripturally commissioned to accomplish - to convince as many people as possible as we journey through this "foreign and hostile land" to join us in seeking that better land - that "heavenly country" whose builder and maker is God.
To get involved politically in the land we say we are leaving is to reveal ourselves as nothing more than frauds - people who don't really intend to leave - and unbelievers have a stubborn and pernicious way of noticing such inconsistencies; and then we have the chutzpah and temerity to wonder why we are so ineffectual in leading people to Christ?
It is precisely this kind of faith that Abraham posited when the Bible says that he –
"…he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
"And truly, if [he] had been mindful of that country from whence [he] came out, [he] might have had opportunity to have returned. But now [he] desired a better country, that is, a HEAVENLY [country]: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called [his] God: for he hath prepared for [him] a city." (Hebrews 11:10, 15-16)
TRUMP AS THE ANTICHRIST
TRUMP: SETTING THE WORLD ON FIRE
So Tim and "DC," when you say that we should support Trump, are you being mindful of that country from which you supposedly came out? We ask you again to consider the SCRIPTURAL evidence regarding the fact that Trump is the antiChrist:
Brothers and sisters, don't be cavalier like Tim when he makes the astonishing statement:
"Hi guys - I would urge you to relax a little and be calm about Trump."
The very real fact is that JUDGMENT is ready to fall on all of us. It's in this reality that we must ask ourselves and we all will be judged not by what we say, but what we do
"What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
"Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
"Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
"But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?" (James 2:14, 17, 20)
Will you be found in the company of the church as one of the TWO WITNESSES, or will you be found in the company of the apostate church?
REMEMBER – THIS TRIAL IS NOT NECESSARILY ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE – IT'S ABOUT YOU!!
HOW YOU ACQUIT YOURSELF "BEFORE THE BAR" OF GOD'S TRIBUNAL DURING THIS TRIAL WILL DETERMINE YOUR FUTURE IN ETERNITY!!
WILL YOU APPEAR AS A WITNESS OR AS A PRISONER?
God bless you all!!
Next time: ISRAEL AS THE SECOND WITNESS OF GOD
For those of you who think I hate America – I do not! Unlike so many of those who criticize me now, I risked my life fighting for this country. Have You? A smaller share of Americans currently serve in the U.S. Armed Forces than at any time since the peace-time era between World Wars I and II. During the past decade, as the military has been engaged in the longest period of sustained conflict in the nation’s history, just one-half of one percent of American adults has served on active duty at any given time.
CONTRIBUTE FINANCIALLY TO
THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY
In the light of all that’s been ha happening recently – and we speak here of the candidacy of Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States, Islamic terrorism, the new anti-Semitism directed against both Jews and the Jewish state (Israel) the growing storm clouds over the Middle east which are harbingers of the coming Gog / Magog War, etc. - the work of the ministry has become exceedingly heavy and time-consuming.
We DESPERATELY need your financial help if we are to continue on with the work God has given us The help you will be entirely used to get you the REAL truth concerning the “end of the age” – truth that you cannot receive anywhere else. We ask you to remember what the Apostle Paul told those who followed him; that if we have blessed you with SPIRITUAL gifts, is it too much to ask that you would reciprocate with FINANCIAL gifts?
PLEASE ALSO BEAR IN MIND THAT SR SHEARER IS NOW 76 YEARS OLD, AND – NEEDLESS TO SAY – THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY WEARS VERY HEAVILY ON HIM. PLEASE PRAY FOR HIS HEALTH WHICH IS NOT REALLY THAT GOOD.

Don’t pity the poor soldier who has tried and failed. Save your pity for the sucker who never had the guts to even try.
