THE GOD-MEN OF AMERICA'S
NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM
by: S.R. Shearer
March 31, 2005
"One of the more disturbing aspects [of the 'New Christianity' of America's New World Order System] ... is its tendency to create a ... class ... of supermen, the miracle class ... GOD MEN'."
- D.R. McConnell
A Different Gospel
"Little children, IT IS THE LAST TIME: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, EVEN NOW ARE THERE MANY ANTICHRISTS; whereby we know that IT IS THE LAST TIME."
- 1 John 2:18
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.
very real fact of the matter is, the "prophets" and "apostles" of America's
New World Order System - "seers" and "diviners" like Kenneth Hagin,
Kenneth Copeland, Bennie Hinn, Paul Crouch, Ted Haggert, C. Peter Wagner,
Paul Cain, etc. - are harnessing the very same preternatural and aberrant
spiritual forces to create their new world order system that the theoreticians
of Hitler's Third Reich used for Hitler's "Millennial Kingdom" - miserable,
wretched pseudo-intellectuals and spiritualists like Arthur
Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietsche, Guido von List, Jorge Lanz von
Liebbenfels, George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky,
Rudolf von Sebottendorff, Houston Stewart Chamberlain, etc. [Please
see our article, "George Bush, the Promise Keepers, and the Principles
of Messianic Leadership."]
THE CREATION OF A RACE OF "GOD-MEN"
Both Hitler's "religion" and the "religion" of America's New World Order
System aimed (aim) at the creation of a race of "GOD-MEN"
with which to conquer and subdue the world. The "SUPERMAN"
that Hitler endeavored to create was to be unlike all other men on earth;
indeed, he told Hermann Rauschning that -
"The NEW MAN ... would be ... different ... from homo
sapiens as we know him ... So fierce and terrible would he be
that ordinary humans would hardly be able to look him in the face;
this race would be the true aristocracy, and all others would be subjects."
[Please note that it is no coincidence that Hitler used a biblical
term here - "new man" (cf. 2 Cor. 5:17, Eph. 2:15, Eph. 4:24).]
"The selection of the new ... [leadership class] is what my struggle
for power means. Whoever proclaims his allegiance to ... [my new world
order] is, by that very proclamation and by the manner in which it
is made, one of the CHOSEN ONES. This is the great significance
of our long, dogged struggle for power, that in it will be born a
new master class, chosen [by God] to guide the fortunes not only of
the German people but of the world." [Note again the use by Hitler
of a biblical term: "chosen ones" (cf. Matt. 24:15, Luke 23:35,
John 6:70, 15:16, 19, Acts 10:41, 15:22, etc.).]
is precisely the kind of SUPERMAN that the "seers" of
America's New World Order System are seeking to create as well. Hitler
attempted to forge his class of SUPERMEN using "race,"
"genetics" and the occultism of Valhalla; Christians in the United States
are attempting to give birth to their race of SUPERMEN
using the "magic" and "spirituality" of a DEVIATE form
of Christianity. But the goal is the same: the creation of a race of
SUPERMEN with which to conquer and subdue the earth. Take,
for example, what Reuven Doron, one of the more popular religious zealots
of America's "New Christianity," has to say; he says that -
"... the ... premise of spiritual revival [which will culminate in
the conquest of the world by the forces of Christianity] ... hinges
upon the rising and completion of the ministry of the prophetic Son
of Man Company' ... Today the Lord is calling forth a 'Son of Man
Company' ..." [For a further description of the kind of "New Christianity"
that we are talking about here, please see our article, "The Superman
Theology of the International Christian Embassy's Feast of Tabernacles;"
please also see our last article, "A Luciferic Christianity."]
think about what Doron is saying here: ALL of human history
"HINGES" upon the "rising and completion" of the "Son
of Man Company," a race of SUPERMEN who - according to
Bob Jones, another religious devotee of the American New World Order
System - will be able to:
"... move into things of the SUPERNATURAL that
no one has ever moved in before ..."
An army of "GOD-MEN" that Jack Deere, yet another "apostle"
of America's New World Order System, says will be -
"... totally unique. Theres never been one like it and
there never will be one like it in ages to come ... Its so mighty
that theres never been anything like it before ..."
There's "never been anything like it before?" Come on now! -
What's the difference here between the NEW MAN that Hitler
attempted to create - a man "so fierce and terrible ... that ordinary
humans would hardly be able to look him in the face" and Jack Deere's
and Bob Jones' description of the Christian NEW MAN? Not
much, that's for sure! It should give one pause in answering the question
as to whose hand is really behind America's "New Christianity:" Christ's?
TRANSCENDING THE BOUNDARIES OF HUMANITY
Hitler called this thought - i.e., the thought that man could become
divine - the "real SEDUCTIVE power of Nazism" -
and that's exactly what is so seductive insofar as America's "New Christianity"
is concerned. Think about it: An army of "GOD-MEN" WHO
HAVE TRANSCENDED THE BOUNDS OF HUMANITY AND HAVE BECOME DIVINE.
These are the Supermen of the New World Order: "Masters of
the Faith!" "Manifest Sons of God!" The "Manchild
Company!" The "First Fruits!" "Joels Army!"
The "Overcomers!" - "GOD-MEN" who, as Paul Cain
says, will be able to walk through walls just as Jesus did (cf.
"So my point is this, that there will be a manifestation of
the sons and daughters of God. And it wont be this baloney that
weve heard of in the past; I mean, theres been a few people
tried to walk through a wall like this over here and knocked their
brains loose, but thats not what Im talking about. Im
talking about a manifested son of God; if anyone walks through this
wall over here, theyre not going to tell you about it - I mean,
theyre just going to do it. And sons of God dont tell
you theyre sons of God, theyll just show you! Amen."
[And one should be very careful here in dismissing Cain because he
appears to be somewhat simple-minded; that's what millions of Germans
did with regard to the "seers" and "prophets" of Hitlerism - and they
lived to regret it.]
"New Breed" of Christians (another term in vogue in describing the "New
Christians" of America's New World Order System - a term used specifically
by Hitler in the description of his "NEW MAN") become
"Kings in Life" and the "Bondage Breakers" for the
rest of the human race; they are able to move in and out of the supernatural
and natural realms. These are the "GOD-MEN" whom God has
appointed to conquer and subdue the world; THESE ARE THE ONES WHO
HAVE BEEN GIVEN AUTHORITY TO CLEANSE THE EARTH OF "EVIL-DOERS"
and usher in the "Kingdom of God." [Please see our article, "Today's
Church: Making Zombies out of Christians - the Prophets and Apostles
"Blow the trumpet in Zion!" the cry goes out from the leaders
of the church:
the noise of the chariots! The chariots are leaping across the mountains!
The army of the Lord is approaching! The earth will quake before them;
the heavens shall tremble. A great people and a strange. There hath
not been ever the like. Utterly awesome! DON'T YOU WANT
TO BE A PART OF IT? Just think, you will be able to climb the
wall like men of war. Even when you fall on the sword you will not
be wounded [A claim that is being specifically made by some members
of General Boykin's Task Force 121 in Iraq]. Crowds clap and cheer
as they visualize the wondrous feats they will be able to perform
in the Name of the Lord! No one wants to miss God and not be a part
of what He is doing! Tears well up in the eyes of hungry seekers as
they wait for the approach of this army. God is raising up an army
in these last days to execute judgment and dominion throughout the
earth." [Taken from a quote from Jewel van der Merwe, an opponent
of this kind of thinking who was essaying to describe the seductive
"pull" behind the "God-Dream" of today's "New Christianity," the same
"God-Dream" that so bewitched and enchanted the German people in the
1930s and very early 1940s; please see our article, "A Luciferic Christianity"
for a description of the way in which the U.S. army is being transformed
into an army of fanatical "Christian warriors" in the service of George
Bush's American New World Order System; please also see our article
that touches on the operations of Task Force 121, "The Power of Self
Sacrifice: Taking Up Your Cross and Following Him."]
CLEANSING THE EARTH OF EVIL-DOERS
Is that what God is doing? - raising up an army in these last days
to execute JUDGMENT and DOMINION throughout
the earth? That's what the "seers" and "prophets" of America's New World
Order System are saying. Don't YOU want to be a part of
it? Don't you want to be deemed worthy to wield the EXECUTIONER'S
SWORD with the "CHOSEN OF GOD?" That's certainly what the
SS was called upon to do. That's certainly what Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich
Himmler believed the SS was called to do:
"We shall unremittingly fulfill our task ... We shall take care that
never more in Germany will [goodness] ... be threatened by evil. Pitilessly
we shall be a merciless EXECUTIONER'S SWORD for ... [the sake
of good people everywhere]."
And that's pretty much what the "prophets" and "apostles" of America's
New World Order System feel that their "Son of Man Company" - their
"New Breed of Christians" - are called upon to accomplish as well. Jack
this army [of Christian supermen] comes, it will be large and mighty.
Its so mighty that theres never been anything like it
before ... BEGIN THE SLAUGHTER' [of evil-doers] ... And
they walk through the land and they start and they begin to slaughter
..." [Please see our article, "A Woman Riding a Beast Going forth
Conquering and to Conquer."]
Francis Frangipane thinks so as well; he somberly warns all those who
oppose the American New World Order System, who oppose the effort by
today's Christian "GOD-MEN" to cleanse the world of evil-doers,
there's going to be a CLEANSING ... there's going to
be a PURGING ... coming forth ... and everyone that's
living under the immorality cover ... will be brought down ..." [Please
see our article, "The Watchers are Watching You."
And, oh my, doesn't the earth need to be cleansed? That's certainly
what the leaders of today's church believe - cleansed of the homosexuals,
the abortionists, the Hollywood liberals, the radical feminists, the
atheists, the "New Agers," the drug users, the ner-do-wells, the single
moms, the welfare cheats, the unbelievers (e.g., unrepentant Muslims,
Hindus, etc.), etc.! - all those living under the "immorality cover."
MAKING ONE'S SELF WORTHY
TO EXECUTE GOD'S JUDGMENT
goes without saying, of course, that those executing God's judgment
on evil-doers must prove themselves worthy to do so. That's certainly
what the members of Hitler's SS - Hitler's SUPERMEN -
had to do.
According to Dusty Sklar (The Nazis and the Occult), the SS
was an elite society with strict conditions for acceptance. One's acceptance
into the SS was conditional upon a very rigorous background check regarding
not only one's racial purity, but also one's moral character. ONE
HAD TO BE BEYOND MORAL REPROACH INSOFAR AS THE CONDUCT OF HIS PERSONAL
LIFE WAS CONCERNED. Sklar writes:
"Before a candidate was allowed to consider himself an SS man, he
had to pass through a year-long course [to prove his physical prowess]
... a period in the Labor Service, and two years in the army. Then,
after an intensive course of indoctrination, he had to wait until
the following November 9 to become a full member. At 10:00 p.m. in
the Nazi shrine in Munich, the acolyte attended a special mystical
ceremony binding him to his Fuhrer, who was present. The scene before
the Feldherrnhalle was described by a Nazi, Emil Helfferich: 'Tears
came to my eyes when, by the light of torches, thousands of voices
repeated the oath in chorus. It was like a prayer':
QUESTION TO THE INITIATE: 'Why do you obey'?
ANSWER FROM THE INITIATE: 'From inner conviction, from
belief in Germany, in the Fuhrer, in the Movement and in the SS,
and from loyalty'."
THE SS: A BULWARK AGAINST CHAOS
The SS men were trained to be the "first stage" in a "superhuman mutation"
and, according to Sklar, acted as if they were in fact SUPERMEN
already. Fearless and cruel - perfectly willing to perform unpleasant
tasks in the service of the new world order - they were, in the words
of Heinz Hohne,
"... mysterious, threatening and incomprehensible to the ordinary
citizen ... [at least to all those considered to be enemies of the
The SS was the bulwark against chaos, AVENGING ANGELS
of Hitler's new world order charged with ridding the Reich and the world
of evil-doers. Sklar relates that there was a feeling among them - like
there is today with the devotees of America's "New Christianity" - that
they were living in the "Last Days" (Himmler's words). Himmler called
the SS -
"A crusade of the ELECT on a divine mission." [Note
again the use by Himmler of a biblical term, the "elect" (cf.
Matt. 24:31, Mark 13:27, Rom. 8:23, Col. 3:12, I Pet. 1:2, etc.).]
The SS was organized much in the same way that many imagine (erroneously,
of course) that Christ "organized" the twelve apostles. An inner circle
of twelve SS officers of top rank met regularly and in secret for conferences
and "meditations" in a monastery in Wevelsburg, Westphalia (Germany),
which Himmler had turned into a castle, refurbishing it at great expense.
In the 100-by-145-foot dining room, circling a round oak table, each
officer-knight sat on a high-backed chair, with a sliver plate engraved
with his name.
COMMUNING WITH SPIRITS NOT OF THIS WORLD
believed he had the power to call up "spirits" not of this world and
hold conferences with them. Indeed, for a week once a year Himmler and
his "twelve apostles" would give themselves over completely to "communications"
with spirits not of this world and spiritual exercises involving "visualization"
at the "brotherhood's" stronghold at Wevelsburg. C. Scott Littleton,
a professor at Occidental College in California, claims that he has
seen evidence from the Nuremberg Trials that named the "Secret Masters
of the Caucasus" as the "spirits" with whom the SS communed (which is
in itself a very interesting fact - please see our article, "The Caucasus
Mountains, Gog, Magog, and Chevron Oil").
SUCH WERE THE MEN IN WHOSE HANDS THE JUDGMENT OF THE REICH'S ENEMIES
WAS COMMITTED, MEN WHOSE OWN LIVES HAD TO BE BEYOND MORAL CENSURE OF
ANY KIND - and so much so that a sure and fearful fate awaited any
SS officer who failed in his duties to the Reich, and in the moral conduct
of his own life. Robert Ley, an associate of Hitler, described the fate
to which not only the failed SS officer, but his entire family would
"The SS man who fails in his office [or whose morality is brought
into question] will not thereby merely be deprived of an office, but
he personally, together with his family, his wife, and his children,
will be destroyed. These are the harsh and implacable laws of ...
[the SS]. On the one hand men may reach to the skies and grasp whatever
a man can desire. On the other hand lies the deep abyss of annihilation."
As a result, while there was a fierce pride in having been chosen worthy
to be a member of the SS "brotherhood," the men of the SS lived a life
filled with apprehension and dread - dread that they would somehow or
other be "discovered" unworthy of their "high calling" and, as a consequence,
be plunged into extinction. This kind of moral severity (and the resultant
unease and foreboding that it causes in its adherents) is also easily
discernible in the "New Christianity" of America's New World Order System
- a kind of moral severity that contradicts the teachings of the New
Testament, teachings which urge all of us as Christ's disciples to -
"Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels
of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
"FOREBEARING one another, and FORGIVING
one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ
forgave you, so also do ye.
"And above all these things put on charity (which means 'love in
action'), which is the bond of perfectness." (Col. 3:12-14)
THE MIRACULOUS POWER OF SANCTITY
question, then, that fairly begs to be asked with regard to this kind
of severity is "WHY?" What is it within both the "GOD-DREAM"
of the Nazis and the "GOD-DREAM" of the "New Christianity"
of America's New World Order System that leads to this kind of harshness?
The answer is that both the Nazis and the adherents of today's "New
Christianity" link "civilization success" to individual purity
within a given society - what Carolly Erickson of the University of
California at Santa Barbara calls the "MIRACULOUS POWER OF SANCTITY."
Inherent in this kind of thinking is the notion that disaster and failure
are the results of sin. It is the personal lesson of Perceval, Lancelot,
and Tristan in the Arthurian legends applied to an entire society -
and it is this kind of thinking which so intrigued Richard Wagner in
Lohengrin, Tristan and Isolde, Parsifal - and even
Gotterdammerung and Die Walkure - operas that enchanted
and bewitched Adolf Hitler.
late Rouses John (R.J.) Rushdoony, one of the leading "prophets" of
the "New Christianity" of America's New World Order System, made the
same linkage between "civilization failure" and individual
purity in a community of believers that Wagner did.
believed that it is the primary responsibility of government to maintain
godly purity within a society; he believed that because American Christians
had allowed their government to be usurped by atheists and humanists,
the role of government and the institutions of Western Christendom had
become perverted; he held - as a result - that America would experience
Gods judgment if the situation was not quickly rectified. [For
further information on Rushdoony, please see our articles, "The Rutherford
Institute," "Richard Mellon Scaife: the Evil that Money Can Do," and
"The Right Wing Panics."]
CIVILIZATION SUCCESS IS
PREDICATED ON INDIVIDUAL PURITY
Moreover - and this is very important - not only would the atheists
and humanists be judged, but believers who had allowed this to happen
would also likewise experience Gods wrath. The penalty would fall
on believers as well - mirroring in a very real way the severe code
of conduct for the SS: "The SS man who fails in his office [or whose
morality is brought into question] will not thereby merely be deprived
of an office, but he personally, together with his family, his wife,
and his children, will be destroyed."
was the responsibility of the church's leadership, therefore, to place
the church at the forefront of political and social action to take back
the reins of government from the hands of the ungodly - and it is precisely
this kind of thinking that has spurred Christians over the last twenty
years to action to "take back the country for Christ and the church,"
an effort that culminated finally in the election of George Bush to
the presidency. [Again, we URGE you to please see our
article, "George Bush, the Promise Keepers, and the Principles of Messianic
BUT, AGAIN, THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF THINKING - the kind
that links individual purity to national greatness - THAT UNDERGIRDED
THE NAZI PARTY AND THE DEVOTEES OF ADOLF HITLER, and Christians
who believe otherwise are only kidding themselves. The truth is, IT'S
PROBABLY NOT SO MUCH THE WHISPERING OF ANGELS THAT ONE CAN HEAR IN AMERICA'S
"NEW CHRISTIANITY" AS IT IS THE SHRIEKING OF WAGNER'S VALKYRIES BESTIRRING
THEMSELVES TO TAKE FLIGHT AGAIN, THIS TIME IN THE SERVICE OF THE AMERICAN
NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM.
A MYSTICAL, SUPER-HUMAN
BROTHERHOOD OF CRUSADER-KNIGHTS
The concept that undergirded the SS was one of a mystical, super-human
brotherhood of crusader-knights dedicated to the expansion of Hitler's
"Millennial Reich." They were spurred on by a quest for moral purity
that propelled them as a "fellowship of believers" from the mundane
to the miraculous. This is exactly the kind of thinking that undergirds
today's "New Christianity" - thinking that, according to its adherents,
will produce a whole class of super-beings dedicated to the expansion
of Christs Kingdom on Earth: a military brotherhood which, if
the hearts of it's individual members are pure, cannot be vanquished.
But the fact is, the concept of a "military brotherhood" - i.e., the
belief that their is a MORAL IMPERATIVE behind the use of military
force to expand Christ's kingdom on earth, and concomitantly, an individual
imperative capable of producing moral perfection in the individual warrior
or crusader - is totally foreign to the concepts of the New Testament.
The origin of such thinking lies in the occult. But, of course, that's
not what the purveyors of today's "New Christianity" think. For example,
"In winning a nation to the gospel, the sword as well as the pen
must be used."
THE VISION OF GOD
At the heart of the quest for purity in both Hitler's religion and
the "New Christianity" of the American New World Order System is what
Carolly Erickson defines as a "VISION OF GOD." Erickson writes:
"Vision (i.e., the 'mystic understanding of God through an intensity
of feeling') ... determined each beings likeness to God.
It was mans visual capabilities, Macrobius wrote, that determined
the degree of his participation in the divine mind - his likeness
and closeness to God - in other words, his spirituality."
Moral purity leads to vision, and vision in turn leads one to a knowledge
of God. Spiritual vision is the index of spiritual progress. At the
apex of all human visions is the "Vision of God." IT IS
THIS HOPED FOR CLIMAX THAT IMPELS THE "SEEKER OF GOD" TO STRUGGLE TOWARDS
PERFECTION - TOWARDS MORAL PURITY. "Vision" (again, the "mystic
understanding of God through an intensity of feeling")
determines each person's likeness to God.
INDEED, IT IS PRECISELY THIS "VISION OF GOD" - once again, this
"mystic understanding of God through an intensity of feeling"
- THAT LEADS TO DEIFICATION. Ralph Waldo Trine, explains; he
writes that when man opens himself up to this "mystic understanding
of God through an intensity of feeling," he opens himself
"... to the direct revelation and knowledge of God, the secrets
of nature and life ... and made to realize his own deific nature and
supremacy of being a real the son of God ... The ultimate goal ...
IS THE TRANSFORMATION OF MAN INTO A GOD."
NO NEED FOR THE BIBLE HERE
need for the Bible here: what's important is "feelings" and the cultivation
of one's own "inner sense;" this goes a long way in explaining the inordinate
emphasis on "other-worldliness" and "hyper-spirituality"
in those who subscribe to the "God-Dream" of Kenneth Hagin, Bennie Hinn,
and the other purveyors of today's "New Christianity," and it also explains
the over emphasis of these men on extraordinary visions and dreams.
Why? - because these phenomena (especially a vision of Christ) become
the index of one's spiritual maturity. [Please see Chapter 17 of the
Antipas Papers, "An Ominous New Direction for Western
Christianity;" please also see our article "The Doctrine of the Antichrist,
the Search for Moral Purity, and Misogyny (i.e., the Fear of Women)."]
NONE OF THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY; IT IS, IN
FACT, THE ANTITHESIS OF TRUE CHRISTIANITY. In biblical Christianity,
perfection is imparted to the believer through Christs work on
the cross (a perfection that cannot be fully apprehended until the resurrection
and the rapture), not on anything the believer has done (or can do).
In the religion of the Nazi state and America's "New Christianity,"
the exact opposite is true.
The fact is, the "hyper-spirituality" generated by one's
quest for a "Vision of God" in the context of America's "New Christianity"
has very little to do with Christian spirituality as such, and everything
to do with the same kind of spirituality (so-called) that manifests
itself in the devotees of the "New Age" and eastern mysticism; the kind
of "spiritualism" that surrounded the life of Ghandi - who absolutely
was no Christian. This is the EXACT same kind of mysticism
that animated the theoreticians of Hitler's Third Reich - people like
Schopenhauer, List, Gurdjieff, Blavatsky and Sebottendorff. It's the
kind of "spirituality" and "other-worldliness" THAT DRIVES MEN
THE TRANSFORMATION OF MAN INTO A GOD
Nonetheless, this is a powerful dream: the dream to become God - to
reach for the heavens, as it were. D.R. McConnell explains "deification"
in his book. A Different Gospel:
"Deification may be defined as the process whereby men are transformed
into gods ... man was created with the divine nature (in Eden), sinned
(through the Fall), and was filled with the satanic nature; but through
the new birth, he is again infused with the divine nature. To be born
again ... is to receive the nature and life of God' ..."
[And, again, we are talking here about INTRINSIC oneness.]
This "GOD-DREAM" permeates our legends and myths, and
echoes back down through the corridors of time to Camelot and Valhalla.
Indeed, for millennia our poets, writers, priests and prophets have
been telling and re-telling the legends and myths which swirl like ghostly
apparitions around this dream: that there is within man a "divine
spark" which longs to be set free in order to ascend to its Originator,
God. Man is, therefore, divine and has a gods role in the universe,
and if not all men are worthy of that dream, at least some are: the
"Manifest Sons of God;" the "Manchild Company;"
the "First Fruits;" "Joels Army;" the "Overcomers!"
However, this concept - the notion that man can become God - is anti-Christian
to its very core; it is LUCIFERIC, and, as we suggested
in our last article, one would do well to consider the words of the
prophet Isaiah before imbibing the waters of this putrid well:
"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
"For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven,
I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD: I will sit
also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
"I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I WILL BE LIKE
THE MOST HIGH." (Is. 14:12-14) [Please see our article, "A Luciferic
Be like the Most High? Be a "MAN-GOD?" - is that what
you want? You want to exalt yourself to the level of God? Well, you
should know that if that's the case, you will someday -
"... be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." (Is. 14:15)
- as Christians we are the "sons and daughters of God," but we are the
"sons and daughters of God" by ADOPTION. We do NOT
intrinsically share the divine nature. Christ is the ONLY
INTRINSIC Son of God. He is united to the Holy Spirit and the
Father INTRINSICALLY. We are not! - AND WE NEVER
WILL BE. [Again, we URGE you to please see our last
article, "A Luciferic Christianity."]
"THAT'S WHO WE ARE: WE'RE JESUS"
Nonetheless, this is exactly what the "prophets" and "apostles" of
America's New World Order System are advocating - specifically, that
man can become as much God as Jesus is God. For example, Kenneth Hagin
teaches that -
"... every born again man is an incarnation [of God]."
And that -
"... the believer is as much an incarnation [of God] as Jesus
of Nazareth." [That's what the late John Wimber was suggesting
when he talked about receiving an "INCARNATIONAL enduement"
(see below); this should give you some idea of just how widespread
this "God-Dream" is in today's Christianity - and one should bear
in mind here that the Vineyard churches are the "kissing-cousins"
of Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapels.]
And lest the reader think that Hagin is only speaking metaphorically,
one has only to consider the following additional quotation:
who we are; were Jesus ..." [Please see our article, "The
Obermenschen (Supermen) of Kenneth Hagin, Bennie Hinn, and
Moreover, the fact that Hagin teaches deification in almost the exact
same fashion that the Nazis (e.g., Nietsche, Schopenhauer, etc.) did
- minus the racism, of course - is not some kind of "hidden truth."
Indeed, McConnell says that it is a well-established fact in the larger
Christian community that -
"Kenneth Hagin ... teaches ... the doctrine of human deification."
This is anti-Christ! Nonetheless, Hagin's popularity in American Christian
circles is not abated. Charisma Magazine calls Hagin the "GRANDDADDY"
of today's "New Christianity."
MAN HAS CREATIVE POWER?
The ultimate aim of deification is POWER - THE POSSESSION
OF CREATIVE POWER; AND, ULTIMATELY, POWER WITH WHICH TO CONQUER
THE EARTH AND CLEANSE IT FROM "EVIL-DOERS." The late John Wimber,
the former head of the Vineyard churches, explains:
"With the ... [coming of] this incredible INCARNATIONAL
ENDUEMENT' of Gods Spirit we will see the Elijahs ... This
END TIME ARMY will be made of the Elijahs of the Lord God ...
There will be a filling of the Temple. That is why we are ... saying
to you that it is coming soon ..." [i.e., this "end time army"
of "God-Men" to judge the earth.]
AN "INCARNATIONAL ENDUEMENT"
An "INCARNATIONAL enduement?" Man becomes God in order
to cleanse the earth? That's what James Robison, the evangelical pastor
who did so much to get Ronald Reagan elected to the presidency in 1980,
thinks as well:
"As I consider the implications of what God is telling us [i.e.,
that we can become God just as much as Jesus is God] ... my mind almost
explodes. I do not believe the Church until this time has ever noticed
more than a fleeting glimpse of THIS OVERWHELMING TRUTH."
This "OVERWHELMING TRUTH?" This is what the world is waiting
for? - what Reuven Doron calls "the rising and completion of the
ministry of the prophetic Son of Man Company'?" This coming
race of "GOD-MEN?" - who will cleanse the earth of EVIL
DOERS so that God's kingdom on earth might be made manifest?
This is what the world is waiting for? But isn't that what Hitler was
attempting to create? - a race of SUPERMEN who would cleanse
the world of EVIL-DOERS? [In Hitler's case, the Jews;
in the "New Christianity" of the American New World Order System, the
poor and "ner-do-wells" of the earth who by their very poverty have
proven themselves NOT to be followers of Christ.]
"In cleansing the earth of the Jews, I'm doing the Lord's work."
The "apostles" of the "New Christianity" declare that "poverty is a
CURSE," and - therefore - "the poor are the CURSED
of God and should be treated as such." This attitude, of course, explains
the ease with which America's "New Christianity" has been able to tolerate
the harsh treatment of the poor by the Bush administration - not only
in this country, but in the world at large. [In a very real way, THE
POOR OF THE EARTH HAVE BECOME THE "JEWS" of the American New World
NOTE: D.R. McConnell writes: "Poverty is, indeed,
a curse, as the Faith teachers say, but it is not a curse that
God inflicts upon people. It is a curse that people inflict upon
one another by means of oppression."
My-oh-my, is it that difficult to see the parallel between what Hitler
was doing and what Christians in the United States are doing today?
The truth is, Christians in the United States have become involved in
Hitlerism, plain and simple - a "CHRISTIANIZED"
form of it replete with oodles and oodles of "Christ-speak," but
Hitlerism, nonetheless. AND THIS IS WHAT THE COMING "GOD-MEN" ARE
ALL ABOUT: THE CREATION OF A CHRISTIAN THIRD REICH, a kind of "Fourth
Reich," as it were. Yes! - that's what deification is all about! - CLEANSING
THE EARTH! It's about SLAUGHTER, BUTCHERY,
BLOODSHED, MAYHEM, MURDER
and GENOCIDE, all in the interest of the American New
World Order System.
DOING THE THINGS THAT SUPERMEN OUGHT TO DO
Naturally enough, if Christians are as much God as Jesus is God, they
ought to be able to do the things that Jesus did - and not simply as
supplicants, but as actual wielders of "God-like" power. For example,
take what Charles Capps says; he writes:
"In August of 1973, the Word of the Lord came unto me saying,
If men would believe me, long prayers are not necessary. Just
speaking the Word will bring what you desire. My CREATIVE POWER
is given to man in Word form. I have ceased for a time from my creative
work and have given man ... my CREATIVE POWER."
is Capps saying here? - what he's saying is that God has given man the
capacity TO SPEAK REALITY INTO BEING, and God expects man to
use that power in order to establish His rule on earth. But, again,
this is not biblical. It's SATANIC. As I have said previously,
it's the exact same kind of thinking that bewitched Wagner in Parsifal,
the Gotterdammerung and Die Walkure; the same kind of
"creative power" that mesmerized the Nazi state. Nonetheless, this kind
of thinking is rampant in the church today - which should give you some
idea as to why the American church is called a WHORE in
the Book of Revelation. She has sold herself out to the devil. (cf.
Rev. 17:1, 15, 16 and 19:2). [Please see chapter 15 of the Antipas
Papers, "The Woman of Revelation 17."]
SIGNS AND WONDERS
Take another example, Franklin Hall: Hall, one of the most revered
early proponents of America's "New Christianity," claimed that Christians
can be "deified" (and, as a result, acquire "creative power) through
stages of spiritual growth, and through experiences with what he called
"UFOs ("Unidentified Flying Objects"), UHOs ("Unusual Heavenly Objects"),
and IHOs ("Immortal Heavenly Objects") - "spiritual entities" that bear
a striking resemblance to the kind with which Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich
Himmler and his "twelve apostles" communed at Wevelsburg Castle in Westphalia.
Hall's premise here is not based on God's promise of immortality after
the resurrection, but on the idea that those who apply his teachings,
and who are able to "establish communication" with the same "spiritual
entities" with whom he communicated, can become immortal while in their
present flesh-and-blood bodies:
"Permanent, lasting freedoms from all sickness, harmful accident
things and defeat will come about. Freedom from the imprisonment of
all gravitational forces will also be brought upon the whole man.
This study teaches one the power and secrets of space flight. Space
floatation and hovering ability.
"It gives the Bible formula for weightlessness, the 'raising up'
power of those who come to Immortality ..." [And, again, I repeat
the same warning to you that I gave concerning Paul Cain: one should
be very careful here in dismissing Hall because he appears to be somewhat
simple-minded; that's what millions of Germans did with regard to
the "seers" and "prophets" of Hitlerism - and they lived to regret
Hall claimed that the blessing of immortality (i.e., "deification")
came from an "Immortal Substance" that emanated from the "spiritual
entities" with whom he communicated. Many who attended Hall's meetings
claimed to have seen this "Immortal Substance" - which they described
as a "fine gold and silver, sparkling material."
This sounds eerily like the kind of phenomena and strange "goings-on"
that occurred at the meetings of William Branham, another early "prophet"
of today's "New Christianity." Thousands and thousands of onlookers
claim to have witnessed these phenomena. Branham even had a light -
a strange halo - which hovered over him during his meetings which he
called "his angel."
This "angel" gave Branham uncannily accurate "Words of Wisdom" and
"Words of Knowledge" for people who attended his meetings, as well as
the power to heal - healings which even today cannot be fully "explained
away." Asked once if the healings were done (and the "Words of Knowledge"
and "Words of Wisdom" were given) by the Holy Spirit, Branham replied,
"No, my angel does it."
These kinds of strange "goings-on" have NOTHING to do
with the Bible, and EVERYTHING to do with the same occultic
thinking that animated Hitler's Third Reich - WHICH SHOULD GIVE ONE
REASON TO BELIEVE THAT THE SAME SUPERNATURAL FORCES THAT ANIMATED HITLER'S
THIRD REICH HAVE NOW INVADED THE CHURCH AND ARE IMPELLING IT ON THE
SAME QUEST FOR WORLD POWER THAT IMPELLED GERMANY IN THE 1930s AND 1940s.
All of these things - communications with "Immortal Heavenly Objects
(IHOs), "Unusual Heavenly Objects (UHOs), and "Unidentified Flying Objects"
(UFOs), higher intelligences, and the manifestation of sparkling material
falling from heaven during gatherings - occurred routinely in
the meetings of the SS at the various castles associated with the "brotherhood"
at Werfenstein in Lower Austria, at Marienkamp near Ulm, and at Rugen,
an island in the Baltic Sea - as well as at the SS's main stronghold
at Wevelsburg in Westphalia.
COMMUNICATION WITH SPIRITUAL
ENTITIES NOT OF THIS WORLD
The fact is, the SS "communed" with supernatural beings "not of this
earth" routinely and in much the same fashion that William Branham,
Oral Roberts, Kenneth Hagin, etc. claim they have done - and what does
it really matter that the "entities" with whom Branham, Roberts, Hagin,
et. al. communed have "Christian" names, and those with whom
Himmler's "Black Priests" communed were the "Secret Masters of the Caucasus?"
The truth is, the "Christs" with whom most so-called Christians in the
"New Christianity" of today commune on a so-called "face-to-face" basis
are more likely than not nothing more than the "false Christs" against
whom Jesus Himself warned His disciples:
"... if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there;
BELIEVE IT NOT. (Matt. 24:23)
Plainly, what that means is when someone - no matter who he is - says
that he has "communed" "bodily" (face to face) with Christ or
another angelic being (for example, the "angel" with whom Branham "communed")
one should be very, very careful of such claims; indeed, Jesus says
that we should "BELIEVE IT NOT." That's what Matthew 24:23
says, AND THAT'S ESPECIALLY TRUE AS THE "END OF THE AGE" DRAWS NEAR
(cf. Matthew 24:14-22). The fact is, the "entities" with whom
they are "communicating" are very probably the same "entities" with
whom the "Black Priests" of Hitler's SS "communicated" at Wevelsburg.
This is heavy! - and it gives us some reason to understand why the Apostle
Paul warned us:
"... we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against [spiritual]
principalities, against [spiritual] powers, against the rulers of
the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
SATAN TRANSFORMS HIMSELF
INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT
The same "entities" with whom members of Himmler's SS were communicating
at Wevelsburg Castle? The same "spiritual beings" that Paul describes
in Ephesians 6:12? These are the "spiritual entities" with whom the
leaders of today's New Christianity are communing? YES!
"And no marvel; for SATAN HIMSELF IS TRANSFORMED INTO AN ANGEL
"THEREFORE IT IS NO GREAT THING IF HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED
AS THE MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; whose end shall be according
to their works." (2 Cor. 11:14-15)
THERE SHALL ARISE FALSE CHRISTS
SHOWING GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS
"... there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall
show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible,
they shall deceive the very elect." (Matt. 24:24)
And then He gave the warning:
"Behold, I have told you BEFORE." (Matt. 24:25)
In other words, "I am warning you in advance so that you can make yourself
ready against this deceit." Then there is Mark 13:22:
"For false Christs and false prophets shall rise [in the end of days],
and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible,
even the elect." (Mark 13:22)
And, once again, the warning:
"... take ye heed: behold, I have FORETOLD you all
things." (Mark 13:23)
Again, Jesus is telling us in advance so that we can prepare ourselves
mentally and spiritually against this deceit - which is sure to come.
Finally, there is 2 Thess. 2:3-4 and 9-11:
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,
the son of perdition;
"Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,
or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of
God, showing himself that he is God.
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all
power and signs and lying wonders,
"And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they
should believe a lie ..." (2 Thess. 2:3-4, 9-11)
And what is the crime spoken of here? - that there shall come a person
in the name of Christ showing "great signs and wonders?" - and that
he shall come "SHOWING HIMSELF THAT HE IS GOD," and not only
anti-Christ as such, but all those others who "show themselves off as
The Bible says:
"Little children, IT IS THE LAST TIME: and as ye have heard
that antichrist shall come, EVEN NOW ARE THERE MANY ANTICHRISTS;
whereby we know that IT IS THE LAST TIME." (1 John 2:18)
MANY ANTICHRISTS! - a whole class of "antichrists;" people like
Paul Crouch, Jack Hayford, Charles Stanley, D. James Kennedy, Tim LaHaye,
the late John Wimber, Juan Carlos Ortiz, C. Peter Wagner, Beverley LaHaye,
Ern Baxter, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson,
Jerry Falwell, Chuck Colson, Robert Stearns, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron,
Che Ahn, Frank Hammond, Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie
Byerly, Dutch Sheets, Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank
Damazio, Ed Silvoso, Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell,
Ted Haggart, Paul Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher,
Jim Laffoon, Barbara Wentroble, ad infinitum.
All of these people - even if they themselves don't preach the doctrine
of deification - permit it to be preached and / or share their pulpits
with those who do - are "antichrists." Jesus said, "He that is not
with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth."
LYING ABOUT ONE'S RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
Brothers and sisters, you should understand here that ANYONE
- no matter how much he uses the name of Christ and no matter how "holy"
his life appears - who involves himself in this kind of "Christianity"
is LYING about his relationship with Christ. HE HAS
NONE. The Bible says:
"Who is a LIAR but he that denieth that Jesus is the
[ONLY] Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father
and the Son." (1 John 2:22)
And the Bible goes on to say -
"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath NOT the Father
..." (1 John 2:23)
What's the apostle John saying here? - He's saying that anyone who
denies the UNIQUE oneness of the Father and the Son -
i.e., who says that man can become as much a "Son of the Father" as
Jesus is - that person comes in the "spirit of antichrist." Put another
way, he who denies the SINGULAR oneness that the Son ALONE
has with the Father, that person has NOTHING to do with
the Father, and whatever claim such a person makes to the contrary is
a LIE; indeed, the Bible says -
"YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL, and the lusts of your father
ye will do. He ... abode not in the truth, because there is no truth
in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is
a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44)
VISUALIZATION AND DIRECTED PRAYING
Some, of course, would protest, not so much on the basis of the plain
teaching of the Scriptures, but because they have witnessed the spiritual
power that these men very obviously wield. But the manipulation of spiritual
power is no guarantee of one's relationship with God! The magicians
who confronted Moses before Pharaoh had power as well - as much power
as Moses had, at least before the end came:
"And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,
"When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Show a miracle ...
then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before
Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
"And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the
LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh,
and before his servants, and it became a serpent.
"Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the
magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.
"For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents
..." (Ex. 7:8-12)
That's no small thing, to change a rod into a serpent; BUT THAT
DID NOT MAKE PHARAOH'S MAGICIANS SERVANTS OF GOD! They were in fact
servants of the devil! Nonetheless, the minions of today's "New Christianity"
never cease in trying to authenticate their ministries through the demonstration
or manipulation of supernatural forces (because they can't authenticate
their ministries by resort to the Word of God; hence their TOTAL
dependence on "signs" and "wonders").
The truth is, however, the SS practiced "magic" in much the same way
that the leaders of today's "New Christianity" do. Take, for example,
the matter of "spiritual warfare" and "directed praying:" There is very
little difference between the way the SS practiced these phenomena and
the way the adherents of the "New Christianity practice these phenomena
today. For instance, consider the testimony of Walter Schellenberg in
connection with the "Show Trial" of General Werner von Fritsch who was
"brought to account" by Hitler's government during the late 1930s on
the false accusation that he was an homosexual; Schellenberg gave the
"I witnessed for the first time some of the rather strange practices
resorted to by [Reichsfuhrer SS] Himmler ... He assembled ... [some
of his] most trusted SS leaders in a room next to the one in which
von Fritsch was being questioned and ordered them all to concentrate
their minds on exerting a suggestive influence over the General that
would induce him to confess. I happened to come into the room by accident,
and to see these ... SS leaders sitting in a circle, all sunk in deep
and silent contemplation [not unlike intense prayer] was truly amazing;
it was a remarkable sight."
Sklar writes concerning this particular incident:
"The student of occultism will recognize ... the 'magical' view [here]
that, through visualization, we can change reality."
"From the ancients to the most simplistic modern exponents of the
magic power of thought, the doctrine is that one's attention and intense
concentration can accomplish any desired end. IF THE END IS NOT
REACHED, IT IS SIMPLY BECAUSE THE MIND HAS NOT SUFFICIENTLY PROJECTED
Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Bennie Hinn and Oral Roberts couldn't
have said it better.
CHRISTIAN WITCHCRAFT AND THE WITCHCRAFT
OF THE SS: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
The Waffen SS practiced these kinds of "visualization" techniques before
every battle they participated in during World War II - and not only
that, but they were deeply involved in "directed praying" against their
enemies. Again, the question that begs to be asked is, What are American
Christians doing involving themselves in the same occultic practices
that animated the SS? Once again I say, shouldn't that cause alarm bells
to go off? Come on now! - what's the difference here between what the
SS engaged in, and what Harold Caballeros advocates in order to "take
dominion" over a "territory" for "Christ and the church?" Caballeros
"When a territory has been inhabited by persons who have chosen to
... [fight against us (for example, the Muslims in Iraq - editor)]
... it is then necessary to identify the enemy and to go into spiritual
battle until we obtain victory and redeem the territory."
But again I ask, Isn't this the kind of "spiritual warfare" that the
SS was engaged in insofar as General von Fritsch was concerned? This
is OCCULTISM, plain and simple. THIS IS WHAT THE FOLLOWERS
OF HITLER WERE INTO. As Christians, we are NOT told
to pray against our enemies. Instead, we are told to -
" ... Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
"Bless them that curse you, and PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY
USE YOU." (Luke 6:27-28)
This is the exact OPPOSITE of what the "New Christianity"
of America's New World Order System "is into." The fact is, visualization
and directed praying are central to the practice of WITCHCRAFT,
which, again, is the manipulation of spiritual or supernatural forces;
and it is condemned by the Bible:
"There shall not be found among you any one ... that useth divination,
or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
"Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard,
or a necromancer.
"For all that do these things are an ABOMINATION
unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God
doth drive them out from before thee." (Deut. 18:10-12)
AN HABITATION OF DEVILS
AND EVERY UNCLEAN SPIRIT
these beliefs are rampant in the American church today - and because
of them the Bible says that America -
"... IS BECOME THE HABITATION OF DEVILS, and the hold of every
foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird [evil spirit]."
AN HABITATION OF DEVILS? OF EVERY EVIL SPIRIT? The Bible
doesn't say that about Russia; about Germany; about China - and the
crimes of these nations were (are) surely great. But it does say that
about Babylon (i.e., the United States). [Please see our article, "In
Search of Babylon: What Does the Bible Say?" for a description of the
United States as Babylon."]
I HATE YOUR SOLEMN ASSEMBLIES
The United States - an habitation of devils? Of EVERY
evil spirit? Think about that! - EVERY evil spirit! -
that's what all this has come to. THESE EVIL SPIRITS, THESE GHOSTLY
PHANTOMS, THESE GHOULISH APPARITIONS AND DEPRAVED SPECTERS ARE POURING
INTO THE COUNTRY LIKE A FLOOD. THEY'VE TAKEN UP RESIDENCE IN OUR CHURCHES,
THEY'VE SEIZED CONTROL OF THE CHURCH'S PULPITS AND THEY BLASPHEME GOD'S
HOLY NAME OPENLY AND WITHOUT SHAME IN THE MIDST OF OUR CONGREGATIONS.
Come on now! - isn't that what Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland,
C. Peter Wagner, Bennie Hinn and all the rest of them are doing when
they say they are the equal of God? That they are as much a son of God
as Jesus is? Come on now! Be honest here!
All these congregations that raise up "holy hands" unto the Lord -
the congregations that sit at the feet of these men or who allow them
to speak from their pulpits: The Lord shrieks out against them:
"I HATE, I DESPISE your feast days ...
your solemn assemblies." (Amos 5:21)
Your "solemn assemblies?" - Ha! I ABHOR them! I DETEST
them! What's that say about those who go to church so piously on Sunday
mornings in the United States? Who make a pretense of worshipping God
with lavish orchestras and beautiful choirs: "I will have NO REGARD
for anything you do for me" (Amos 5:22); "I will NOT ACCEPT
anything from you" (Amos 5:22):
"Take thou away from me the ... [sound] of thy songs; for I will
not hear the melody of thy viols." (Amos 5:23)
YOUR WORSHIP DISGUSTS GOD; YOU
ARE WORSHIPPING YOURSELVES
The music of America's churches disgusts God! - because it is NOT
God that they are worshipping, but themselves:
"... ye have borne the tabernacle of YOUR Moloch and
... YOUR images, the star of YOUR god,
WHICH YE MADE TO YOURSELVES. (Amos 5:26)
"The STAR of YOUR God, which ye MADE
TO YOUR SELVES?" Americans worship themselves! - after all, isn't
that what they are doing when they say they are God; isn't that what
Paul Crouch, John Wimber, C. Peter Wagner, Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth
Hagin, Oral Roberts, Mike Bickle, Reuven Doron, Che Ahn, Frank Hammond,
Cindy Jacobs, Bill Hamon, John Eckhardt, Bobbie Byerly, Dutch Sheets,
Jim Goll, John Paul Jackson, James Ryle, Frank Damazio, Ed Silvoso,
Carlos Annacondia, Claudio Freidzon, Roger Mitchell, Ted Haggart, Paul
Cain, Chuck Pierce, Rick Joyner, Kingsley Fletcher, Jim Laffoon, Barbara
Wentroble, ad infinitum are doing who say openly and without
"That's who we are! We're Jesus." (Kenneth Hagin)
You say that you've never done that; you've never heard your pastor
say that. But have you ever heard your pastor speak out against that?
He knows what's happening! How can he not know? - these are the "stars"
of today's church; these are the ones featured regularly on the pages
of Charisma Magazine. How can your pastor not know? How can you
not know? - unless you have chosen PURPOSEFULLY not to
know. People know, but it doesn't seem to matter to them anymore. They
have become calloused to the truth. These are the people about whom
the Bible says:
"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;
"... having their conscience seared with a hot iron ..." (1 Tim.
"Seducing spirits" - the same ones that so bewitched Germany, who lurk
about in our churches, and who in the "LAST DAYS" (2 Tim.
"... creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins,
led away with divers lusts ..." (2 Tim. 3:6)
[Note: 2 Tim. 3:1 (above) and 3:6 (here) are linked
together - all of which are linked to the "LAST DAYS."]
These are the kind of people who give heed to the disgusting and schmaltzy
pabulum of a Rick Warren and his insipid, vapid little book, The
Purpose Driven Life; people who are -
"... Traitors [to true Christianity], heady, highminded, LOVERS
OF PLEASURE MORE THAN LOVERS OF GOD;
"HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, but denying the power thereof
..." (2 Tim. 3:4-5)
Again, all these things are linked together: (1) the "last days;" (2)
evil spirits creeping about; (3) "silly women;" (4) traitors to true
Christianity; (5) heady, highminded people who are lovers of pleasure,
etc. And where is all this evil principally located: BABYLON.
WOE TO THEM WHO ARE AT EASE IN ZION
The Bible continues:
"WOE TO THEM THAT ARE AT EASE IN ZION,
"... that ... cause the seat of violence to come near ..." (Amos
to all you who are at ease in the United States, who call yourselves
"Christians," but support the VIOLENT and BRUTAL
extension of the American New World Order System throughout the world.
[Please see our articles, "Inside the American New World Order System"
and "The Third World as a Model for the New World Order."]
Woe to them -
"... that lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their
couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out
of the midst of the stall;
"That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves
instruments of music, like David;
"... and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are
not grieved for the affliction of Joseph [i.e., of the innocent]."
to all those who live in luxury and comfort and who piously claim to
worship God, but who are not grieved by the HORROR and
SAVAGERY that their country is visiting on the peoples
and nations of the world - ALL IN THE NAME OF THEIR GOD. Woe
to those who call themselves "Christians" in the United States and who
are not repulsed by these things.
THEY ARE NOT REPULSED
And make no mistake about it, they are not repulsed! - even many who
were at one time a part of this ministry, but who left it because of
its supposed "harshness." They have grown used to the dreadful condition
of today's American church and the nation it supports; they have become
"hardened" to it; they have become insensitive to its horror. Indeed,
one of my closest erstwhile colleagues even now attends one of the largest
churches in Sacramento - a super-church that regularly opens up its
pulpit to Bennie Hinn and others of his ilk - and by doing so, he reveals
himself as nothing more than a shameless, insipid little HYPOCRITE
who is totally unable to stand against the "course of this age."
His actions give the lie to his "spiritual" verbiage; he's a coward
- a brother who claims to see what Antipas sees (and who even shamelessly
"rewrites" its material and calls it his own), but who preaches "moderation"
and refuses to take any MEANINGFUL action with regard
to the horror that surrounds him - and COUNSELS OTHERS TO DO THE
SAME. But as Barry Goldwater once said: "Radicalism in the service
of truth is no vice, and moderation in the service of truth is no virtue."
Some day soon he and the others like him will have to give an account
to the Lord of their craven cowardice; but meanwhile they label me a
Jim Jones - while all the while, by commission and omission,
they help keep the doors of the American church open to the likes of
I AM WEARIED BY ALL THIS
Brothers and sisters, I tell you the truth here: I am very, very wearied
by all this: in contending for the truth, it seems sometimes that all
I'm doing is "tilting at windmills" like Don Quixote, and leaving in
my wake people who are enraged at me and what they see as my "lack of
It breaks my heart; but I would rather be loyal to God and His Word
than win a "popularity contest" with my friends - most of whom long
ago departed from me, as this one particular brother is so fond of pointing
out. But, then, he has left me, come back to me, and left me again many
times before, both he and his friend. I suppose they'll be back again
someday once they see what's really happening - but they will have wrecked
many lives in the interim by their counsel and their timidity. Meanwhile,
they continue their very personal attacks against me. They can't attack
me theologically, so they attack me on an ad homenim basis.
But it's not as if I am surprised by these things. The fact is, I am
an old, overweight, very rumpled, and somewhat disordered individual
who presents a rather easy target to anyone who wants to attack me on
a personal level, and this brother and his friend have been making a
habit of doing that for years and years.
Oh well, Paul had his Alexander and his Hymaneus (1 Tim, 1:20; 2 Tim.
4:14), and I have this brother and his friend - as well as countless
others. So all I can say to my many detractors is, if my "harshness"
offends you, take a number and get in line; the line wraps around the
block several times over.
GET AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN
Nonetheless, the fact remains that Babylon is sick BEYOND
REMEDY. The Bible says:
"We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: FORSAKE
HER ..." (Jer. 51:9)
NASB renders this verse as follows: "We applied healing to Babylon,
but she was not healed: [so] Forsake her ..." In other words,
like a physician, God prescribed a treatment to heal Babylon. But Babylon
failed to adhere to that treatment. [Please see our article, "The Jesus
Revolution and the Search for Community and the Church-Life" for the
story of that effort.]
fact is, just as Germany fell ill beyond any hope of a cure after Hitler
assumed power in Berlin on a cold, rainy evening in late January, 1933,
so America is now sick beyond help. January 30, 1933, was both an end
and a beginning for Germany: an end to the moribund liberalism of the
and a beginning of the final process which led Germany into the abyss
of war and genocide. After that night, there was no turning back. For
one fifteen-year-old girl, Melita Maschmann, the marching columns of
torch-bearing Nazis that evening before the Kaiserhof in Berlin gave
"magical splendor" to the idea of the New Germany, just as the election
of George Bush to the presidency has given thousands and thousands of
"New Christians" in the United States reason to believe that their hope
of transforming America into a "Christian Republic" destined by God
to redeem the earth is now close at hand - and hang all those who get
in the way!
1933 and 1938 Germany went through a course of rapid transformation
from a democracy to a dictatorship; the procedure was punctuated by
a series of "invented crises" which served to propel the process on
whenever it showed signs of slowing, or when it reached what appeared
to be an impediment: for example, the Reichstag
Fire, the Roehm Affair (the infamous "Night of the Long Knives"), Kristalnacht
("Crystal Night"), etc. By the time the process came to an end in 1938
the so-called "tainted" remnants of pluralism and democracy had been
removed, and nazified structures and mentalities had been adopted throughout
Germany. In addition, the state had gradually expanded the use of "protective
custody" (Schutzhaft) to lock up all its enemies. This process
of "coordination" (Gleichschaltung) was for the most part undertaken
voluntarily and with alacrity. By 1939, Germany was prepared for TOTAL
similar process of Gleichschaltung and Schutzhaft aimed
at transforming the United States into a totalitarian state - while
going unnoticed by most Christians who applaud the effort - is now well
underway in the United States, punctuated, like Germany's, by "invented
emergencies" designed to break down the resistance of those who oppose
what's happening. But one has only to consider what happened to Gary
Webb, Sherman Austin and Judi Bari to understand how far along the process
is in the United States, all this to say nothing of what has happened
to Lynne Stewart and Ward Churchill. [Please see our article, "The Use
of Police Brutality in the Elite's War Against the Poor;" please also
see our article, "Playing End Time Games: Looking Back to Babylon and
Morphing into a Pillar of Salt." In addition, please see our article
on Gary Webb, "The Death of Gary Webb;" also our article on Sherman
Austin, "Don't Be Naive about Going to Prison for Christ;" and, finally,
our article on Judi Bari, "Judi Bari, Darryl Cherney and Earth First."]
DON'T BE STUPID: THE DIE HAS BEEN CAST
be sure, America's process of Gleichschaltung is replete with
"starts" and "stops;" but, again, so was Germany's - and one should
not be comforted when it occasionally slows down. For example,
Germany's policy of unremitting hostility toward the Jews actually moderated
in 1934 - and so much so that the exodus of Jews fleeing Germany slowed
down markedly; SOME EVEN CAME BACK, thinking that the worst was
over. But, in fact, the die had already been cast for the Jews on that
rainy evening in January, 1933 - just as the die was cast for all right-thinking
Christians in the United States by the re-election of George Bush to
the presidency in 2004. [Please see our article, "The End Is Upon Us."]
is only one thing left for people - meaning YOU - to do:
GET AWAY FROM THE UNITED STATES AS FAST AS YOU CAN! (Jer. 51:9)
[Please see our articles, "Come out of Her" and "A Luciferic Christianity."
Please also see the "Note" in our article, "The American New World Order
System Must Give Way to the Kingdom of God" regarding the applicability
of this verse (i.e., Jer. 51:9) to our present situation.]
you must understand something here: This is not a "suggestion;" it is
not simply "good advice." It is a COMMANDMENT. How can
anyone honestly say otherwise? - and this COMMAND [i.e.,
the one in Jeremiah 51:9 - see above)] parallels exactly the one in
"... COME OUT OF HER, my people, that ye be not partakers
of her sins [in other words, get away from her so that you don't fall
ill with the same disease that she has contracted], and that ye receive
not of her plagues [and you perish as a result]." (Rev. 18:4)
Christians - like the Jews before them - dither! And in doing so, what
they are actually doing - knowingly or unknowingly, no matter
- is "making light" of the Word of God; and when nothing immediately
occurs as a consequence of their inaction and disobedience, they take
that to mean that God doesn't really plan to do what He says He is going
to do. They mistake His "longsuffering" insofar as their STUPIDITY
is concerned as a license to treat God's holy DICTATE
with indifference and apathy -
"... despising [i.e., treating lightly] ... the riches of his goodness
and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness
of God leadeth thee to repentance [i.e., that it should lead one
to turn away from his indifference to God's commands]?
"But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto
thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous
judgment of God ..." (Rom. 2:4-5)
THERE IS A TSUNAMI
COMING STRAIGHT AT YOU
Christians in the United States - again, like the Jews before them
- utterly fail to grasp the fact that there is a TSUNAMI
(a giant tidal wave) that is INEXORABLY bearing down on
them, and WHATEVER REASON THEY HAVE FOR DITHERING ON THE BEACH (AS
IT WERE) AND NOT SEEKING "HIGHER GROUND" WON'T COUNT FOR ANYTHING WHEN
THE WAVE FINALLY SMASHES ASHORE, not even when the dithering is
done under the guise of staying behind to help get others out.
The very fact of their presence on the beach when the wave crashes
ashore is what will kill them; their reason for being there is irrelevant.
The Bible says:
"... Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice ..." (1 Sam. 15:22)
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW DIFFICULT
IT IS FOR YOU TO GET OUT
Listen to me, dear brothers and sisters in the Lord: in the light of
this reality, it doesn't matter how difficult it is for you to get away
from the beach (to get out of the United States); it doesn't matter
how many obstacles stand in your way: God's Word to you is GET
OUT (Rev 18:4, Jer. 51:6 and 51:9) regardless of the obstacles
that confront you. THERE ARE DEMONS AFTER YOU. It's not
without reason that God warns His people that America has "... become
the habitation of devils" (Rev. 18:2) - the very same ones that
seventy years ago took control of Germany; demons and evil spirits very
much like the ones depicted in Revelation 9:7-11:
"And the shapes of the ... [spirits] were like unto horses prepared
unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold,
and their faces were as the faces of men.
"And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as
the teeth of lions.
they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the
sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses
running to battle.
"And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings
in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless
pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek
tongue hath his name Apollyon." (Rev. 9:7-11) [Please see Chapter
9 of the Antipas Papers, "The Second Half of the Seventieth
NOTE: Ask yourself how much different this biblical
description is from the description the disciples of the "New
Christianity" give themselves:
"Hear the noise of the chariots! The chariots are leaping across
the mountains! The army of the Lord is approaching! The earth
will quake before them; the heavens shall tremble. A great people
and a strange. There hath not been ever the like. Utterly awesome!
DON'T YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF IT? Just think,
you will be able to climb the wall like men of war. Even when
you fall on the sword you will not be wounded. Crowds clap and
cheer as they visualize the wondrous feats they will be able
to perform in the Name of the Lord! No one wants to miss God
and not be a part of what He is doing! Tears well up in the
eyes of hungry seekers as they wait for the approach of this
army. God is raising up an army in these last days to execute
judgment and dominion throughout the earth."
There's not much difference, that's for sure!
FALSE CHRISTS AND FALSE PROPHETS
And whereas these particular spirits (the ones in Revelation 9) will
not make their appearance until the last half of the Seventieth Week,
spirits very much like these have even now made the church in the United
States their home (Rev. 18:2), and so much so that the church today
is serving the American New World Order System much in the same capacity
that the Nazi Party served Hitler's Third Reich; and they no longer
go under designations like the "Masters of the Caucasus" (the designation
that Himmler used), but under names like "Kenneth Hagin," "Kenneth Copeland,"
"Bennie Hinn" -
false Christs, and false prophets ... [who] ... show great signs and
wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the
very elect." (Matt. 24:23-24) [Please see our article, "The American
New World Order System Must Give Way to the Kingdom of God;" again,
please also see the "Note" in this article regarding Jeremiah 51:6
and 51:9. For a "time-line" of the events of the "Seventieth Week,"
please see Chapter 5 of the Antipas Papers, "Understanding
the Book of Revelation."]
NOTE: the words, "if it were possible," in Matt.
24:24 do not appear in some of the original manuscripts.
Yes! there are demons after you! - and the danger you are in is much
greater than the danger the Jews of Germany found themselves in - and
that's saying a lot! What do I mean by that? - I mean that at least
the Jews had no possibility of actually being subsumed or absorbed by
the evil they confronted; they were "marked" from the very beginning.
There was no way out for them except the ovens of Auschwitz. But with
Christians in the United States, there is a great possibility that they
will actually be absorbed by the evil they confront. THEY WILL BECOME
A PART OF IT - and that will make them the objects of God's wrath.
That's what the Bible clearly implies when it says:
"... come out of her, my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS IN HER
SINS [in other words, get away from her so that you don't fall
ill with the same disease that she has contracted], and that ye receive
not of her plagues [and you perish as a result]." (Rev. 18:4)
And if that occurs, they will be judged with the same judgment that
will befall Babylon; they will -
"... be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit." (Is. 14:15)
I tell you the truth when I warn you, it is a much more fearful thing
to be the object of God's wrath than it is to be the object of Hitler's
wrath. The Bible says:
"It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
And it goes on to say:
"... fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill
the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and
body in hell." (Matt. 10:28) [In other words, fear God.]
THE MIND POSSESSED
It's easy to say today that somehow or other the German soul was predisposed
to "group think" and totalitarianism; but not so Americans. The fact
is, however, as Dr. William Sargant writes in his book, The Mind
"It is not the mentally ill but ordinary normal people who are most
susceptible to 'brainwashing' ... and who ... fall readily under the
spell of the demagogue ..." [i.e., demagogues like Bennie Hinn, Kenneth
Hagin, James Robison, C. Peter Wagner, etc.]
"BELIEFS HAVE THE POWER TO INFECT. The onlookers at a mass
rally [or at a church meeting where Bennie Hinn, Paul Cain, Reuven
Doron, John Paul Jackson, and their ilk are speaking - editor], where
emotions are being stirred up [by the sound of rapturous, ecstatic
singing, and spell-binding music - editor], often feel the same intensity
of excitement that the participants (speakers, musicians and singers)
feel. WE CAN 'CATCH' IDEAS THAT ARE COMPLETELY FOREIGN TO US ...
Hitler's early speeches [amidst all the flag-waving, singing, and
marching SS and SA troops] were so mesmerizing that even people who
were repelled by his ideas felt themselves being swept along. The
playwright Eugene Ionesco mentions in his autobiography that he received
the inspiration for Rhinoceros when he felt himself pulled
into the Nazi orbit at a mass rally and had to struggle to keep from
developing 'rhinoceritis' (i.e., from being turned into a Nazi).
"We 'catch' ideas ... because we want to be like others, particularly
... [when we are alone, or somewhat dissatisfied with ourselves and
our lives]. Through conformity, the person who feels ... [less than
others] is in no danger of being exposed [himself]. He's indistinguishable
from the others. No one can single him out and examine his unique
being. Conformity, in turn, sets him up to be further canceled out
as an individual, to have no life apart from his collective purpose.
This gives a movement tremendous power over the individual. Even intelligent
people are not immune from the desire to conform. Heinrich Hildebrandt,
a schoolteacher who was anxious to hide his liberal past, joined the
Nazi party, and to his own disgust, found himself proud to be wearing
the insignia. 'It showed I belonged, and the pleasure of belonging
so soon after feeling excluded, isolated, was very great ... I belonged
to the new nobility'."
THE BELIEVER CAN'T GO BACK
This is the great danger that all those "good Christians" who stay
behind in the United States face: that they will be infected by the
"new Christianity." Of course, they deny that their faith can ever be
so shaken - but that's not what history suggests, and it's not what
the Bible says. The fact is, as Dr. Sargant says,
"... the well-balanced person ... [caught in the kind of situation
a 'good German' was caught in the 1930s] may suddenly give up his
previous intellectual training and habits of thought to accept ideas
which he would normally find repellent or even patently nonsensical."
Sklar says that -
"... once the believer has been ... [subsumed], it is difficult for
him to revert to his former self. In a sense, collective totalitarian
thinking can be compared with schizophrenia. In both, there is , says
Joost Meerlo in The Rape of the Mind, a 'loss of an independent,
verifiable reality' ... He is immune to reasonable propositions. He
is convinced that he is reasonable, and that his enemies are not ...
HE CANNOT GO BACK ... He is committed to his involvement in
the group. To renounce it would be to repudiate himself. IT WOULD
ALSO MEAN GIVING UP ALL THE PSYCHIC BENEFITS OF OMNIPOTENCE
[that belonging to the group gives him]. His personality
and prejudices have become crystallized around a set of actions and
dogmas. They are irreversible ... He has become the movement. All
thoughts and feelings that are at odds with it are snuffed out. This
is what gives ... [such a person] the air of a one-dimensional man.
He lacks depth. There is a limited range of possibilities open to
him. If one wants, therefore, to convert him back to an autonomous
human being, one finds there is nobody home ... Within his sacred
circle, all other knowledge is taboo."
This is the mental and spiritual condition towards which all those
Christians who don't leave the country are headed. Sklar says, "THEY
CANNOT GO BACK ... THEY HAVE BECOME ONE WITH THE MOVEMENT ... IF PEOPLE
WANT ... TO CONVERT THEM BACK ... THEY FIND THERE IS NOBODY HOME
..." This is precisely the "pathology" that will lead all those who
remain behind to subsume themselves eventually and by degrees to the
will of America's New World Order System. They will become one with
the MOVEMENT - i.e., the "New Christianity" of the American
New World Order System.
"At Nuremberg, after the war, Allied examiners were shocked to see
how unrepentant ... the Nazis were. Julius Streicher cried 'Heil
Hitler! Heil Hitler! Heil Hitler!' at his execution, until the
opening of the trap door muffled his voice. Arthur Seyss-Inquart [the
gauleiter of Holland] declared, to the last, that Hitler remained
'the man who made Greater Germany a reality in history'. Rudolf
Hoess [the commandant of Auschwitz], by his own admission was 'completely
filled, indeed obsessed' with his monstrous goal; he was not guilty
of arrogance when he proudly declared that 'Auschwitz became the
greatest human extermination center of all time'. HE WAS ONE
OF THE COUNTLESS ORDINARY MEN WHO HAD BEEN TURNED INTO A BELIEVER.
He gave validity to Hitler's contention '... THAT PEOPLE CAN
... BE MADE TO MISTAKE HELL FOR HEAVEN ...' As Hitler knew
better than perhaps anyone else: 'The essence of propaganda consists
in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, THAT
IN THE END THEY SUCCUMB TO IT UTTERLY AND CAN NEVER AGAIN ESCAPE FROM
Think about that: they eventually SUCCUMB TO IT SO UTTERLY THAT
THEY CAN NEVER AGAIN ESCAPE FROM IT. That's what the Bible says
as well. This is the power of leaven, and NO ONE can stand
up to its power for ever, especially the leaven that is now at work
in the churches of America and America itself.
The Bible says:
"A little leaven leaveneth the WHOLE lump." (Gal. 5:9)
And it will "leaven" YOU! It will take you over, and
once it has, you will not be able to revert back to your former self.
YOU WILL BE ABSORBED. To put it in today's vernacular, YOU
WILL BE "BORGED." [Star Trek: The New Generation]
LOOK WHAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED
TO THE LEADERS OF TODAY'S CHURCH
This is certainly what's happened to most of the leaders of today's
church. Take the frightening words of George Grant, Executive Director
of Coral Ridge Ministries, an affiliate of D. James Kennedy's giant
Coral Ridge Church in Florida:
"Christians have an obligation, a mandate, a commission, a HOLY
responsibility to reclaim the land [meaning America] for Jesus Christ
- to have DOMINION in civil structures, just as in every
other aspect of life and godliness.
"But it is DOMINION we are after. Not just a voice.
"It is DOMINION we are after. Not just an influence.
"It is DOMINION we are after. Not just equal time.
"It is DOMINION we are after.
"WORLD CONQUEST. That's what Christ has commissioned us to
accomplish ... And we must never settle for anything less ... Thus,
Christian politics has as its primary intent the conquest of the land
- of men, families, institutions, bureaucracies, courts, and governments
- for the Kingdom of Christ."
And exactly how is this dominion going to be achieved? In the words
of Christian Coalition field director, Bill Thomson, THE CHURCH'S
FOES SHOULD BE DESTROYED; they should be wiped from the face
of the earth:
"You [meaning you Christians] are going to run over the top of them
[meaning the church's enemies], DESTROY them - WHATEVER
YOU NEED TO DO so that God's word is the word that is being practiced
in Congress, town halls and state legislatures. That's your job."
Listen to what Thomson is saying here: "DESTROY your
enemies!" "Run over the top of them." That's Hitlerism! - and believe
me when I say that it emanates from the same evil spirits that drove
Germany mad; the same evil spirits that Himmler communed with at Wevelsburg
Castle; the same evil spirits that Professor C. Scott Littleton called
the "Masters of the Caucasus" - after all, "if it looks like a duck,
it walks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, it's a duck."
"World conquest!" "Dominion!" That's what the church's leaders want
today, and in order to achieve it, they have commanded their followers
to "get rid of" those who stand in their way: "Destroy them!"
"Do what you have to do!" Hitler couldn't have said it better.
All these people have been - in the words of Dusty Sklar - "INFECTED;"
there is no going back for them; they are "caught." And if it can happen
to them, it can happen to you. The infection is spreading; soon it will
spread to you. This is why the Bible warns you to -
"... come out of her, my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS IN HER
SINS ... " (Rev. 18:4)
YOU MUST ACT QUICKLY
Sklar writes concerning the SS:
"[The members of the SS] considered themselves sacred. Faith in a
holy cause had taken possession of them. They were completely incapable
of objectivity. WHAT THEY DID WAS NOT SEEN BY THEM AS EVIL.
This pathological blindness convinced them that they were participating
in the superhuman task of ridding the world of a menace ... They were
swept along by 'prophets' like Lanz, List, and Sebottendorff. The
well-to-do ... gave them financial backing, which must have reassured
Lanz, List, and Sebottendorff in their belief in themselves as messiahs
Sklar continues ominously,
"There are leaders preaching to multitudes today ... [just like Lanz,
List, and Sebottendorff did in the past] ... I have been at meetings
[where they preached] and I have seen presumably sane and rational
people accept without question irrational doctrines presented portentously,
believing that they were receiving revealed truth."
This is the kind of irrationality that has taken hold of the church
today; but NONE of this has anything to do with the Bible:
the belief that man can become a GOD-MAN; that he can
become DIVINE; that the church has been given a sacred
mission to "rid the earth of evil;" that America is God's REDEEMER
NATION chosen by God to accomplish this task. This is ALL
irrational in the light of Scripture; this is what the SS thought; still
it's believed by American Christians. They want to believe it, and that
"wanting" is infectious; and it WILL infect you in time.
This is why you must obey God NOW; not later, but NOW.
WHAT MATTERS IS OBEDIENCE
What counts now - in the light of all this - is obedience to God's
COMMAND. Nothing else matters. In not obeying God here,
you are repeating the same mistake that the children of Israel made
when they refused to go into the "Promised Land" to "possess" it because
"there were giants" there:
"But the men that went up ... said, We be not able to go up against
the people; FOR THEY ARE STRONGER THAN WE ARE.
"And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had
searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through
which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants
thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great
"And there WE SAW GIANTS, the sons of Anak, which come of
the giants: and WE WERE IN OUR OWN SIGHT GRASSHOPPERS, and
so we were in their sight." (Num. 13:31-33)
Is that what's delaying your going? Giants? Do you feel that you're
confronting "giants" in your life as you seek to obey God's COMMAND
to "COME OUT?" - and that these "giants" are too great
for you to defy?
If so, you are headed for an awful demise, and YOU ARE GOING TO
MISS OUT ON WHAT GOD HAS FOR YOU! That's what happened to the "children
of Israel," and that's EXACTLY what is going to happen
to you if you disobey God. Brothers and sisters, you must understand
something here: God is INSULTED by your disobedience and
your lack of faith in Him. It is no small thing to Him when men who
"... have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt
and in the wilderness ... [to] hearken not to my voice;
"Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers,
neither shall any of them ... see it:
"Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness ..." (Num. 14:22-23,
Have you seen God's glory? Have you seen His miracles? - if so, why
do you doubt Him? You are INSULTING God by doing so, and
you will die in the "wilderness" just as surely as the children of Israel
did. Pretty intense! - but God isn't fooling around here! You either
trust Him or you don't: That's the end of it.
More next time!
