AMERICA HAS BECOME INNUNDATED BY EVIL SPIRITS – "AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH"

Like a flood, evil, angelic spirits are inundating our planet "as in the days of Noah"



PREFACE
[IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ]

This article deals with very unpleasant material, specifically matters pertaining to SEXUAL PERVERSION - and in doing so, it touches on the matters of DIVORCE and ADULTERY.

These twin scourges - DIVORCE and ADULTERY - strike at the fundamental social structure that defines "man" - ie., the "FAMILY." The importance of "FAMILY" in God's "Plan and Purpose in the Ages" is indicated by the way God Himself relates to us - as our FATHER. Destroy the family, and you destroy what helps to define man as "man;" and not only that, you destroy man's ability to "connect" with God - which is exactly what Satan is after.

It is, however, not our intention to judge those of you - our dear readers - who have fallen victims to these scourges. Our God is a merciful God; His mercy endures forever, and the blood of His Son is sufficient to cover the darkest of our sins. Nonetheless, even when there is forgiveness, there is WRECKAGE left behind.

America's descent into the madness of SEXUAL PERVERSION (to which both ADULTERY and DIVORCE are tightly connected) in the last half of the Twentieth Century and the first two decades of the Twenty-First Century gives evidence to a monstrous evil that has overtaken our country - one that is similar to the kind that overtook man prior to the Flood of Genesis Chapter 6 - ie., the infestation of malicious angelic spirits into the environs of the United States (Luke 17:26), the same kind of infestation and resulting sexual depravity that led to God's declaration that He -

"... repented that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. "And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth ..." (Genesis 6:6-7)

The extent to which SEXUAL PERVERSION has taken hold on the country evi-dences the magnitude of this incursion of malevolent spiritual agencies, and so much so that the Bible declares that the United States (ie., Babylon the Great) has become -

"... the habitation [prison house] of devils, and the hold [dungeon] of every foul spirit, and a cage [pen] of every unclean and hateful bird [spirit]." (Rev. 18:2)

Moreover, dear Christian, do not think - even for a moment - that you have been immune to the influence of these malignant beings; and that your children and your children's children have not (are not) fallen (falling) victim to their sway. Indeed, I tell you the truth when I say that even the children of the most sincere Christians are today falling victim to the vivacity of these spiteful agencies - and, as a result, their love for Christ has "WAXED COLD." (Matthew 14:12 - cf. Matthew 24:13-28)

May God have mercy on your soul if you continue to dwell CARELESSLY under the influence of these evil, other-worldly entities. (cf. Revelation 17:3 and Isaiah 47:1-10)

INTRODUCTION

There are passages in the Bible that many Christians would prefer weren't there – passages such as those we have been studying during our last two articles; we speak here of Revelation 17:3:

"So he carried me away in the spirit INTO THE WILDERNESS: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." (Rev. 17:3)

Revelation 18:2:

"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great ... [HAS] BECOME THE HABITATION [PRISON HOUSE] OF DEVILS, AND THE HOLD [DUNGEON] OF EVERY FOUL SPIRIT, AND A CAGE [PEN] OF EVERY UNCLEAN AND HATEFUL BIRD [SPIRIT]." (Rev. 18:2)

And finally, Revelation 18:4:

"I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF [PARTICIPANTS IN] HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues [ie., judgments, punishments]. (Rev. 18:4)

[Please see our articles, "Dwelling in a Land Where There Is No Water" and "Something to Ponder ..."]

These verses (ie., Revelation 17:3, 18:2 and 18:4) cannot help but give one pause as to the advisability of continuing to reside in the United States, OR, at the very least, dwelling in the U.S. without the benefit of a strong church-life - and by that we mean a church-life that clings to the WHOLE of God's Word, especially as the Word of God embraces the PROPHETIC SCRIPTURES.

NOTE: The Bible says that the church is -

"... the PILLAR and GROUND of the TRUTH." (1 Tim. 3:15)

THE CHURCH: The PILLAR & GROUND OF TRUTH

If, then, a church no longer "abides in that truth" (I John 2:27) can it really be called a church? The answer is obviously, No! Just because people who call themselves Christian meet together does not in itself mean that they meet as the church.

The Mormons, the Moonies, the Jehovah Witnesses and countless other similar sects call themselves Christian - but does that mean that when they meet together, they meet as (or constitute) the church? - No, of course not! Why? - because they do not meet on the "ground of truth," despite the fact that they call themselves Christian and meet together on a regular basis. Plainly, that means that if a church refuses to WHOLLY embrace the truth of the Prophetic Scriptures – when that TRUTH is plain enough for all to see who want to see - they are no longer a church.

The Bible says:

"... God is a Spirit: and they that worship him MUST worship him in spirit and in TRUTH. (John 4:24)

And it goes on to say,

"Whosoever ... abideth not in the doctrine [truth] of Christ, HATH NOT GOD ..." (2 John 1:9)

THE PROPHETIC VIEW OF THE UNITED STATES

According to these Scriptures (once again, Revelation 17:3, 18:2 and 18:4), the Bible reveals to us the very troubling truth that as the "end of days" approaches -

"Babylon has become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." (Rev. 18:2)

  1. The United States has become a land where there is no water and, ipso facto a land that can no longer sustain life [and the Bible is referring here to a life dedicated to Christ].
  1. The United States has been transformed into a land that has become -
    • The habitation [prison house] of devils,
    • The hold [dungeon] of every foul spirit,
    • A cage [pen] of every unclean and hateful bird [spirit].
  1. And, finally, a place where God's people have been commanded to COME OUT OF HER -
    • That ye BE NOT PARTAKERS of her sins [that ye become not PARTICIPANTS] in her sins],
    • And that ye receive not of her plagues [ie., judgments, punishments] .

ANCHOR VERSES:
Revelation 17:3, 18:2 and 18:4


Come out of her!

NOTE: There are those, of course, who would angrily retort that God is capable of sustaining life in any kind of environment. But that's not always what God CHOOSES to do – and very evidently He has CHOSEN not to sustain life in the environs of the United States. This is not the first time that God has CHOSEN to withdraw His presence from a certain land. One has only to remind himself of the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. (cf., Genesis 18:20 – 19:29)

It would appear, then, that the "solution" that God is offering to His servants in the U.S. is the same "solution" that He offered His servants in Sodom: "TO COME OUT OF HER."

THE DANGEROUS IMPLICATIONS OF REVELATION 18:2

It's necessary at this point that we take time out to pay particular attention to the implications inherent in Revelation 18:2 – that is to say, America has become "the habitation [prison house] of devils and the hold [dungeon] of every foul spirit and hateful bird [spirit]" – and more than just that, that we consider the hideous and perilous implications this verse has for all those living in the United States – especially CHRISTIANS.

Anchor Verse:
Luke 17:26

Anchor Verse:
Matt. 24:12

In doing so, we want to consider two additional verses:

First, Luke 17:26:

"As it was in the days of Noe [Noah], so shall it be also in the days of the [coming of the] Son of man." (Luke 17:26) [Please see "The Days of Noah" in Part 5 of Chapter IX in the New Antipas Papers."]

Second, and much more ominously for Christians, as we shall soon see, Matthew 24:12:

"And because iniquity [ie., SEXUAL PERVERSION] shall abound, the love of many [for Christ] shall wax cold." (Matthew 14:12; cf. Matthew 24:13-28)

Luke 17:26 is the "sister verse" – as it were – of Matthew 24:12, which has particular reference to the "end of days" (cf. Matthew 24:13-28). What we mean is this: Matthew 24:12 speaks of a great increase in SEXUAL PERVERSION in the "end of days," and Luke 17:26 ties that increase to the same type of incident that overtook mankind prior to the Flood (Genesis chapter 6) - THE INTRUSION INTO THE EARTH OF EVIL AND MALEVOLENT SPIRITS. [Once again, we URGE you to see "The Days of Noah" in Part 5 of Chapter IX in the New Antipas Papers."]

ANCHOR VERSES:
Luke 17:26, and Matt 24:12


America: I sit a queen; I shall be a lady forever.

Finally, and as we just pointed out, it's imperative that we take into close account Genesis chapter 6, a passage of Scripture that details what is happening – even right now – to YOU who are living CARELESSLY in this country, not willing to acknowledge the PERVERSION that has taken hold of YOU just as those in ancient Babylon were doing when the Lord declared unto them:

"And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things [God's warning] to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

"Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest CARELESSLY, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

"But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, THE LOSS OF [YOUR] CHILDREN*, and widowhood ... (Isaiah 47:1-10) [Please see "In Search of Babylon: What Do the Scriptures Say?"]

NOTE: We URGE you to pay close attention to verse 49:9 (above) that speaks of the "LOSS OF ONE'S CHILDREN*" – ie., the children of those who fail to respond to God's warning regarding the influence of Babylon the Great on their offspring; specifically, that the love of their children would "WAX COLD" with regard to Christ (Matthew 24:12). Believe me when I tell you that this is happening today to countless numbers of Christian parents all over the country – even to those who have done everything possible to raise their children up in the love of Christ.

Are you, dear Christian, living CARELESSLY in America? – unwilling to come to grips with God's warning that by your association with America you are in the process of being PERVERTED, and that you are in grave danger of losing your children "to the love of pleasure" rather than to the love of Christ; and to His admonition that eventually -

"Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen ..." ?

In other words, that you will eventually have to pay a horrible price for neglecting God's warning.

Are your, dear Christian, dwelling CARELESSLY in Babylon, thinking that you have not been PERVERTED by your association with her? Think again!

You need to consider this possibility seriously – ie., that you may (unknowingly?) be in the process of being PERVERTED by your association with Babylon the Great (ie., America), and that your children will be lost to you as a result.

And one should not be cavalier in thinking "once saved, always saved" – unless, that is, you are prepared to explain away the fate of that "SERVANT OF GOD" who was cast "into outer darkness" (cf. Matthew 25, specifically, Matthew 25:30) or the 5 VIRGINS who had the gates to the Wedding Feast shut to them (again, see Matthew 25, specifically verses 11-13), and finally, the awful words of Hebrews 10:26-29:

"For if we sin wilfully [ie., revert to a life guided by our carnal appetites] after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, THERE REMAINETH NO MORE SACRIFICE FOR SINS,

"But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour ... [you].

"He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:

"OF HOW MUCH SORER PUNISHMENT, SUPPOSE YE, SHALL HE BE THOUGHT WORTHY, WHO HATH TRODDEN UNDER FOOT THE SON OF GOD, AND HATH COUNTED THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT, WHEREWITH HE WAS SANCTIFIED, AN UNHOLY THING, AND HATH DONE SPITE UNTO THE SPIRIT OF GRACE?" (Hebrews 10:26-29)

"God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
"If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth ..." (1 John 1:5-6) **

Perhaps those who say these Scriptures refer to a "punishment" less severe than the loss of one's salvation are right; but is it worth it to take the chance that these verses might not mean exactly what they seem to mean? – permanent separation from God.

Are you willing to take that chance? Are you willing to explain what "outer darkness" means other than separation from God - Who Himself is Light? (1 John 1:5-6)**

OR explain what having the gates shut against you for failing to "trim your lamp?"

OR, appearing, by your cavalier attitude toward sexual pleasure, to have "... trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant ... an unholy thing ..."

I'm not!

PART 2
A RE-PLAY OF GENESIS CHAPTER 6

INTRODUCTION

In linking Luke 17:26 and Matthew 24:12 to Genesis, chapter 6 we can begin to comprehend the fact that the huge increase of SEXUAL PERVERSION in the United States today is the result of something much more than what the inane babbling of today's sociologists and psychologists would have us believe, and that its extent surpasses anything that would have been understood as "abnormal" in the past.

If the Bible is to be taken seriously, then we have no other choice but to attribute this phenomenon to a NEW flood into the earth of "principalities," "powers," and the "rulers of darkness" (cf. Ephesians 6:12) similar to the one that occurred in Genesis 6, creating in its wake the same kind of perversions that brought on the Flood.

The thought that there might exist principalities and powers greater than man is not entertained by today's science.

COMING TO GRIPS WITH THE
REALITY OF THE SUPERNATURAL

The thought that there might exist principalities and powers greater than man is not entertained by today's science. The mere mention of the supernatural is often received with a smile of incredulous contempt. And there are not a few professing Christians of the liberal persuasion who manifest a great anxiety to explain away the supernatural and to limit as far as possible its recurrence in the present time, though they do not totally deny its reality. But that Satan can work wonders, they will never allow, and in many cases they seek even to deny his existence.

But today's science is merely a flickering candle when compared to another reality - a reality, though obscured and half-hidden, is as true, nonetheless, as is the seen reality of science and technology. And when compared to this other reality, reason (so-called) and science are but the tip of an iceberg that shows above the water, while submerged down below is the great mass of that which is true and real.

Deny as we will the existence of this other reality, we are, nonetheless, reminded of it constantly. At night it comes to us when we are alone. Perhaps we are visited by its presence during the day in a solitary walk on the beach or in the forest. Sometimes it comes to us in day-dreams when at work; but, somehow, it is always there - and we know it! Hollywood knows it, too. Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas know it as well. Our young people know it. Movies such as The Shinning, E.T., Star Wars, Amityville Horror and The Omen openly declare the reality of this other world.

Deny as we will the existence of this other reality, we are, nonetheless, reminded of it constantly in lonely walks, in daydreams, etc. Hollywood acknowledges it as well. Movies such as The Shinning, E.T., Star Wars, Amityville Horror and The Omen openly declare the reality of this other world.

And despite all the protestations to the contrary, the so-called secular world is also deeply involved today with the supernatural. Even our institutions of higher learning acknowledge the presence of this other reality. Indeed, the psychology departments of many of our finest colleges and universities have, in recent years, become nothing more than "fronts" for the investigation of para-psychology - that is to say, clairvoyance, astrology, etc. - and scholastic credit is offered in these subjects. Our best police departments openly consult and even employ [often quite successfully] psychics in the investigation of crimes. [Please see our article, "Witchcraft and the Paranormal."]

That the human race has not been totally subjected and submerged by these evil dignities on high is only because of the gulf, perhaps the better word is the secular term "dimension," which God has fixed between them and us; for who could know the viciousness of their sin, the depths of their immorality, the vile power of their hateful lusts? And though they can appear as angles of light, they inhabit the halls of darkness, and their home is the blackness of night forever.

And though they can appear as angles of light, they inhabit the halls of darkness, and their home is the blackness of night forever.

THE DAYS OF NOAH

However, this dimension has, from time to time, been pierced and broken through. And when this has occurred, the result to man has been one of unparalleled disaster and moral collapse; indeed, as we have already discussed, it was precisely this that brought on the monstrous magnification of wickedness and sexual depravity in the days of Noah which eventually led to God's judgment in the Flood; Genesis, chapter 6 says:

"Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God [lit., "Elohim," meaning angels - in this case, wicked angels] saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves [i.e., had sexual intercourse with] whomever they chose ..."

"Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God [lit., "Elohim," meaning angels - in this case, wicked angels] saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves [i.e., had sexual intercourse with] whomever they chose ... The Nephilim [lit., the "fallen ones," meaning the offspring of the sexual union between the daughters of men and the fallen angels] were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God [angels, ie., the "fallen ones"] came into the daughters of men [i.e., had sexual intercourse with them], and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old in Greek mythology], men of renown ... Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth [as a result of man's intercourse with the "fallen ones"], and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually ... And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. And the Lord said, 'I will blot out man whom ... for I am sorry that I have made them'." (Genesis 6:1, 2, 4-7).

"Now, in speaking of the sin of some of these, Jude (Jude 6) tells us that, despising the position of dignity and responsibility in which God had placed them, they voluntarily left their own home [or, disrobed themselves of the spiritual body proper to them as beings of heaven, and materialized for themselves an earth-body; for the word used here means the heavenly body with which the believer longs to be clothed] in the ... [heavens], prompted as it would seem by earthward desires [for the daughters of men], and began to exercise an unlawful influence over the human race [which led eventually to the great increase of wickedness - far beyond what is even known today]. And, perhaps, as a punishment, their [ie. that special class of Satan's angels which involved themselves in this specific crime] return [to heaven] was prohibited."

Pember goes on to say:

"The children of these unlawful connections before the flood were the renowned heroes of old: the subsequent repetition of the crime doubtless gave rise to the countless legends of the Classics [of Greek mythology], as well as in the ancient literature of other languages, in which human families are traced to a half-divine origin."

The Greek Nephilim - lit., the "fallen ones" - meaning the offspring of the sexual union between the daughters of men and the fallen angels; LEFT: Achilles, BOTTOM: Hector, TOP LEFT TO RIGHT: Agamemnon, Electra, Clytemnestra, etc.

So heinous was their crime in the sight of God [that is, the unlawful sexual union between men and angels], that He destroyed man in the Flood and dashed the angels responsible to the lowest pit - for Peter tells us that after they [the angels] had sinned, God spared them not -

"... but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment ..." (II Peter 2:4)

Pember writes concerning this passage:

"... a more literal rendering [of this passage] would be ... 'For if God spared not angels when they sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus, and committed them to pits of darkness, to be reserved to judgment' ...

"Tartarus appears to be a place of imprisonment more terrible than Hades ... In the Greek mythology, Tartarus was a dark abode of woe, as far beneath Hades as Earth is below Heaven (Homer II. viii. 16) - a description which fairly corresponds to Peter's 'pits of darkness'. Very significant, too, is the fact that it was thought to be the prison of Cronos (ie., Kronos) and the rebel Titans [the beings who in Greek mythology were responsible for exactly the same crime as described by Genesis 6]."

Cronos and the fallen angels chained in Tartarus

THE APPEARANCE OF THE FALLEN ANGELS

The foundations of human society before the Flood were destroyed by the appearance of the fallen angels. The eruption of these beings upon the earth led to the total corruption of the human race - so much so that it was beyond remedy. The fallen angels had burst the bands that had separated them from humanity. The gulf or dimension that God had placed between men and angels had been bridged, and now these malignant beings poured into the earth like a torrent into an empty lakebed. Violence and bloodshed filled the earth. Slaughter and rampage were everywhere. And if man had been sullied before by the taint of sin, he descended now into a state of abject disgust and abhorrence a thousand times worse than his condition before the poisonous infestation of his world by these malicious beings.

There appears to be but one other occurrence of this sin after the Flood: the assertion is made in Numbers 13:33 in reference to the sons of Anak, who are said to have been Nephilim (the word translated "giants" in the KJV in these verses is Nephilim). These were the Canaanites who so frightened ten of the twelve spies that Moses sent into Canaan after the Exodus to spy out the land; it seems to account for God's command that the whole race of the Canaanites should be extirpated or annihilated.

The thought here is that the Canaanites should be removed much like a doctor would excise or amputate a cancerous leg from a man to preserve the rest of the body from the spread of the malignancy.

PART 3
GAUGING HOW DEEPLY AMERICA HAS
BEEN PENETRATED BY EVIL SPIRITS

INTRODUCTION

And now it's happening again! – evil, angelic spirits [ie., the "fallen ones"] are flooding into the atmosphere of the earth, and we can begin to judge the extent of this hideous infestation by measuring the vast extent of SEXUAL PERVERSION that is occurring in the country today – all of which gives credence to Luke 17:26:

"AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH." (Luke 17:26)

Finally, and very ominously for Christians, Matthew 24:12 says that the kind of SEXUAL PERVERSION that has taken hold of the United States is causing -

"THE LOVE OF MANY [FOR CHRIST] TO WAX COLD" (Matthew 24:12) -

- and I cannot begin to tell you as a pastor of many, many years how many Christians I have once known whose love for Christ has "waxed cold" as a result of SEXUAL PERVERSION, and the results of SEXUAL PERVERSIONie., adultery, divorce, fornication, etc. Now these are not my words, these are the words of the Bible. If you have an argument with this matter, your argument is not with me, it is with the Bible.

Most Christians today, when they think of sexual perversion, think of homosexuality – and that, therefore, their lives do not "weigh in the balance."

They believe that the increase of homosexuality is the measure against which we should gauge the increase of sexual perversion in America.

But homosexuality is not the "end all" of sexual perversion. Indeed, it ranks a distant third in the catalogue of "sexual sins" mentioned in the Bible. For example, Christ Himself never even touched upon the question of homosexuality in His earthly ministry.

He was far more concerned with the sin of adultery.

NOTE: The fact is, there is no real indication that there has been any increase in the overall percentage of homosexuals in the country; they account for no more than 3 – 5 percent of the population – and that was as true in the 1950s as it is true today. The difference between then and now is that gays have (as it were) "come out of the closet." [Please see our article, "Proposition 8: How Should the Church Respond to Its Defeat?"]

And if all this is not enough to make Christians realize that the "sin of homosexuality" is not an accurate guide to measure the increase of sexual perversion in America (again, there has been no increase in the percent of homosexuals in the country), one might take note of the fact that homosexuality is not even a sin mentioned in the "TEN COMMANDMENTS" – though the sins of ADULTERY (the 7th Commandment) and the sin of PORNOGRAPHY (implied by the 10th Commandment) - certainly are.

USING A MORE ACCURATE GAUGE IN MEASURING
THE INCREASE OF SEXUAL PERVERSION

Using adultery (including fornication) – the seventh commandment, and pornography (which could easily be implied in the wording of the tenth commandment) as more accurate guides to the increase of sexual perversion, we can begin to see that not only Americans in general but the Christian community as well have been deeply affected by the sexual perversion that has taken hold of the nation in the last 7 or 8 decades.

The increase in the divorce rate gives proof to this supposition; divorce and adultey are tightly connected; indeed, one cannot have the one sin without the other sin. The fact is -

  • today the great majority of Christians in the United States are divorced (the figure now approaches 60%), and
  • most Christians visit pornographic websites on a regular basis).

All this lends substance to the warning of Luke 17:26: that because of sexual perversion, the love for Christ insofar as Christians in the United States are concerned has WAXED COLD. (Luke 17:26)

NOTE: Regarding this matter, it is absolutely incredible the way most Christians - both young and old - cavaliery enter into fornication with their boyfriends and / or girlfriends without even giving it a a second thought.

Sixty years ago, divorce simply did not occur except rarely and on the periphery of society. The truth is, the difference between the society of the 1950s and the present is the difference between night and day. The disparity between "then and now" is clearly visible in the TV programming of "then and now." One has only to compare "Father Knows Best, "The Life of Riley," "Leave It to Beaver," "Our Miss Brooks," "The Nelsons," "Mayberry," etc. with "Modern Family," "Parks & Rec.," "How I Met Your Mother," "Cougartown," "Community," etc. all of which treat adultery, fornication, etc. as normal – something that would have been unheard of in the 1950s.


The mark of a divorced woman! "A" stands for "adultress"

Moreover, one should not think, as many naifs do, that the family programs of the 1950s did not accurately reflect the norm of that era – THEY DID! The sexual mores portrayed in these long-ago sit-coms were extremely accurate mirrors of the social practices of the time. For example, a divorced man could not even think of running for public office or hold a responsible position in a corporation before the so-called sexual revolution of the 1960s. It was believed that if a man could not keep in check his sexual appetite and maintain a happy and wholesome home how would it be posssible for him to responsibly hold a public office or manage a business corporation.

And as for as divorced women were concerned, they were marked -- "A" meaning "adultress" -- (often unfairly) and all but ostracized from "polite" society.

Today, however, divorced men hold the highest offices in the land (eg., former President Ronald Reagan, ironically, the darling of the Religious Right) and lead the most important corporations in the country, and divorced women are the norm in second marriages.

Moreover, the wreckage that divorce leaves in its wake is horrific: broken homes; children without fathers (or mothers); the destruction of the value system of one's offspring - eg., the acceptance of fornication as "normal," (after all, if the boy friends and girl friends of one's single parent can stay overnight in one's house (often in the presence of one's children), why isn't it okay for children to fornicate with their own boyfrineds and/or girlfriends.

The wreckage of divorce

All this to say nothing of the wounded minds and hearts that never heal, rage that lingers on, and on and on and on – and it matters little whether the divorce was justified or not: THE WRECKAGE IS STILL THERE.

PART 4
PORNOGRAPHY: THE GATEWAY
TO TODAY'S SEXUAL PERVERSION

INTRODUCTION

Furthermore, with the advent of easily accessible pornography (beginning with Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, etc., etc. and culminating in the intrusion of this phenomenon into the home via the internet), pornography has become ubiquitous – even in the sanctity of one's own bedroom and the bedrooms of one's children.

Pornography has fueled SEXUAL PERVERSION with rocket fuel and has allowed the sexual revolution to reach the unspeakable heights of bondage and discipline (B&D), sado-masochism (S&M) and pedophilia. [We URGE you to see our article, "The Supernatural, America's Intelligence Agencies, the Republican Elites, Drugs and Pedophilia."]

Melinda Clarke playing "Mistress Heather" - playing a "practioner" of pain and bondage in CSI Las Vegas, the most popular TV drama in the United States.

NOTE: It should be noted in this connection that the kind of sex that results in PAIN (e.g., bondage, whips and leather, sado-masochism, humiliation, etc.) is a sure sign of demonic possession; demons are the disembodied spirits of those who trod the earth in the flesh before the ruin described in the second verse of Genesis, and who, at the time of that great destruction, were DISEMBODIED by God, and left still under the power of their great leader in whose sin they shared. (Please see Pember's classic work, Earth's Earliest Ages for further study in these matters.)

As a result, these demons suffer a wearisome lack of ease, a wandering unrest arising from a sense of incompleteness because of their disembodied state. They long to be clothed with flesh again, and so great is their craving that if they can satisfy it in no other way, they will even enter into the filthy bodies of pigs (cf. Matt. 8:31). They desire to "FEEL" again, if only pain, and this is the reason that many possessed persons inflict pain on themselves (cf, Luke 8:27), for it is not they, but the demons that have entered them, who are responsible. [Please see Chapter IX of the New Antipas Papers, "The Course and Character of the Last Days."]

Concerning the intrusion of pornography into the lives of an ever-expanding portion of the American population (Christians and non-Christians alike), Dr. Judith Reisman of Haifa University in Israel writes:

"For decades I have lectured on visual pornography as an "endogenous drug" that PERMANENTLY restructures the brain, mind, memory and conduct of unthinking users ... Pornography overrides cognition and causes dramatic changes in viewers' behavior. This can be simple coarsening, impairing the capacity to love, or it can lead to brutal sexual crimes."

Dr. Judith Reisman

NOTE: Dr. Reisman has guest lectured at numerous educational establishments, including Princeton, Georgetown, etc., as well as to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado. Her publications include, Images of Children, Crime and Violence in Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler (US Dep. Justice Grant No. 84-JN-AX-K007, 1986, 1989, 1990); Kinsey, Sex and Fraud (Judith Reisman et al., Lafayette LA: Huntington House, 1990; Soft Porn Plays Hardball (Lafayette: LA. Huntington House, 1991); Kinsey: Crimes & Consequences (The Institute for Media Education, Crestwood, KY., 1998, 2000, 2003).

Dr. Mary Ann Layden, co-director of the Sexual Trauma and Psychopathology Program at the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Cognitive Therapy, concurs with Riesman. Speaking on the seriousness of sexual addictions before the 2004 Senate Commerce Committee, Layden said:

"Sexual addicts have a more difficult time recovering from their addiction than cocaine addicts, since coke users can get the drug out of their system, BUT PORNOGRAPHIC IMAGES STAY IN THE BRAIN FOREVER."

Sex addiction: more powerful than cocaine and heroin addiction.

Now, that's serious! – an addiction far more powerful than an addiction to cocaine and – presumably - even heroin !!!!

NOTE: Again, this kind of addiction can only emanate from the perverted influence of evil, angelic spirits – the same kind of spirits that prior to the Flood of Genesis 6 "... saw that the daughters of men were beautiful ... [and] took wives for themselves [i.e., had sexual intercourse with] whomever they chose ..."

She goes on to say:

"Furthermore, research shows that as an addiction, pornography builds upon itself, driving the addict to seek more extreme experiences of visually satisfying material. Sexual addicts develop tolerance and will need more and harder kinds of pornographic material."

What Layden is saying here is that there seems to be a pathology extant in "sexual addiction" that presses one down into a seemingly never-ending spiral of destruction.

Plainly, then, sexual addiction is a far more serious thing than the "mainline press" says it is, and what average Americans are willing to admit.

PART 5
STARTLING STATISTICS

INTRODUCTION

The tempo of sexual addiction is growing exponentially in the United States.

Moreover, the tempo of this "addiction" (ie., the fact that man is becoming ever more a prisoner of his sexual cravings) – is growing exponentially.

  • For example, the increase of "unique" visitors to pornographic websites on a year over year basis approaches 75 to 100 percent, which can't go on forever since the number of Americans is finite, not infinite. In real numbers what this means is that almost 2/3 of Americans now visit pornographic websites on a regular basis every month.
  • Now consider the income range of those using internet porn; specifically, the fact that 61% of those who visit pornographic websites have incomes above $50,000 a year. Obviously, then, those who are using pornography are not the poor, but the relatively "well-off" – ie., people who would normally describe themselves as "Republicans" and "Christians."

NOTE: Concerning the participation of so-called "Christians" in the "sexual revolution," Riesman writes:

"The pornographic explosion ... now poisons us all; our government officials, doctors, professors, schoolteachers, men, women, children, and yes, clergy ... Religious believers, like all others, are tainted by the sexual revolution."

For example, in November 2004 Dr. Ted Baehr, publisher of the Christian Movieguide commended Christian author Archibald Hart, who appears regularly on Dr. Dobson's radio program, for demonstrating the fact that almost 96% of all MARRIED men surveyed masturbate (presumably while looking at pornographic material).

Then there is Dr. Paul Cameron of Fuller Theological Seminary who promotes what he calls "sexual gradualism" by which he means that it is permissible for children under the age of 13 to kiss and hug one another in a "private room;" by age 13 breast fondling, manipulating and sucking are permissible; by age 14 mutual hand exploration of genitals and mutual masturbation should be encouraged; after which total nudity and oral sex should be promoted. Interestingly, this is the same Dr. Cameron, who once made the cold-blooded assertion concerning gays and lesbians,

"Unless we get medically lucky [i.e., unless AIDS does the job for us], in three or four years, one of the options discussed [in dealing with the scourge of homosexuality and AIDS] WILL BE THE EXTERMINATION OF HOMOSEXUALS." [Please see our articles, "Gays and Lesbians in the Bloody Hands of Christian Evangelicals" – please see Part 6 of this article, "The Religious Right: the Blind Leading the Blind."] 

And there is more! – Zondervan, one of the most prominent Christian book publishers in the country, publishes a book by David Lynn entitled More High School Talksheets that encourages Christian teachers to "write what they think when viewing the words "Sex," "Horny," "Lust," the "F-word," etc. Then there is the shocking revelation that one extremely prominent "Christian minister" associated with the "Promise Keepers" encourages men to stand naked in a "prayer circle" holding one another's penises while praying. [Once again, we URGE you to see our article, "The Supernatural, America's Intelligence Agencies, the Republican Elites, Drugs and Pedophilia" to understand how deeply sexual perversion and pedophilia have penetrated into America's so called "conservative" community.]

  • Finally, one should take note of the country that is most "addicted" to internet porn; IT IS AMERICA: 89 percent of all consumers of pornographic websites are Americans.

AND SO NOW WE BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND ...

And so now we begin to understand the words of Scripture:

"And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon ... [has] become the habitation [prison house] of devils, and the hold [dungeon] of every foul spirit, and a cage [pen] of every unclean and hateful bird [spirit]." (Revelation 18:2)

"Babylon [ie., America] [has] become the habitation [prison house] of devils, and the hold [dungeon] of every foul spirit, and a cage [pen] of every unclean and hateful bird [spirit]." (Revelation 18:2)

Revelation 18:2 plus the statistics noted above make it abundantly clear that the place where the eruption of "evil spirits" alluded to in Revelation 9:1-11 is centered, IS Babylon the Great (ie., the United States) – which make the words of Revelation 18:4 that much more prescient:

"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF [PARTICIPANTS IN] HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues [judgments]." (Revelation 18:4) [Please see our article, "The Cost of Discipleship."]

PART 6
THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT:
THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND

INTRODUCTION

"Let them alone [meaning, stay away from them]: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (Matthew 15:14)

And do not think - even for a moment - that the solution the Religious Right is offering to "clean up the country" by legislative fiat is any solution at all. As we have clearly shown, the Christian community is every bit as infected by SEXUAL PERVERSION as is the rest of society; it's a case of the "blind leading the blind." The Bible says:

"Let them alone [meaning, stay away from them]: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (Matthew 15:14)

Take, for example, John Hagee, pastor of the huge Cornerstone Church in San Antonio and perhaps the leading advocate of a "Christian takeover" of the country: Hagee was the leader of the charismatic Trinity Church in 1975 and the father of two children when he had an adulterous affair with a younger woman. He then divorced the mother of his two children and married the woman (Diana Castro, now Diana Hagee) - a "sister" from that same congregation.

John Hagee

AND NOW HAGEE FEELS HE CAN LEAD THE NATION BACK TO THE "SEXUAL NORMS" OF THE 1950s. The thought is ridiculous. [For more information on Hagee, please see our articles, "God Bless Our Death Squads," "Preparing the Ground in America for the Emergence of Antichrist, Parts 1 and 2" "Things Aren't Always What They Appear to Be" and "McCain & Palin: The Business Right Marries the Religious Right."]

As we have pointed out over and over again, all that the hypocrites in the Religious Right are capable of doing is creating a POLICE-STATE – one having nothing to do with the Kingdom of God. [Please see our article, "American Dystopia;" Please also see our five part series, "The Development of a New National Security Apparatus in the United States and What It Will Mean to You:" Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5."]

The Religious Right: leading the country into the nightmare of a Christian police-state just as Hitler led Germany into the same kind of nightmare.

AS I SAID BEFORE ...

Listen to me, brothers and sisters: in confronting the SEXUAL PERVERSION that is today rampant in the United States you are confronting something much more than a sociological phenomenon. You are battling against an infestation of enormous proportions – an infestation of supernatural beings against which you cannot possibly prevail as an individual Christian.

You will find that you are making the same mistake that certain Christians made when they adjured an evil spirit "by the name of Jesus whom Paul preacheth" to come out of a man and were answered by that spirit:

"... Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

"And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded." (Acts 19:15-16)

"And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded." (Acts 19:15-16)

PART 7
BE CAREFUL – IT'S NOT JUST YOUR FATE THAT IS AT STAKE, BUT YOUR CHILDREN'S FATE AS WELL

INTRODUCTION

Be careful here, brothers and sisters: it's not just your fate that is at stake here IF you take this article in a cavalier fashion; IF you fail to comprehend the awful meaning of Revelation 18:4:

"And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her my people, THAT YE BE NOT PARTAKERS OF [PARTICIPANTS IN] HER SINS, and that ye receive not of her plagues [judgments]." (Revelation 18:4) [Please see our article, "The Cost of Discipleship."] -

- IF you fail to see how deeply you yourself have already been affected by the SEXUAL PERVERSION that has taken hold of the country; IF you fail to recognize the great danger your children and your loved-ones are in from these malevolent spirits.

As I indicated previously, I cannot begin to tell you of the many, many children of the most sincere Christian I know who have fallen into the SEXUAL PERVERSION of the "end of days," and whose faith, as a result, have "WAXED COLD" (Matthew 14:12); and, moreover, Christian parents who are unaware of how deeply their own faith has "WAXED COLD" as well, making them susceptible to the imagined faith of today's apostate (ie., fallen) church.

KICKING AGAINST THE PRICKS

Now, I am not yet ready to dismiss the possibility of establishing a meaningful church-life in the United States with a group of believers prepared to embrace the WHOLE of the Prophetic Scriptures.

Still, one wonders if one is not -

"KICKING AGAINST THE PRICKS." (Acts 9:5)

The fact remains, I am unaware of any church in this country willing to embrace the WHOLE of God's Prophetic Word AS A CHURCH and willing to stand up against the apostate (ie., fallen) church and the American New World Order System – again, AS A CHURCH..

Yes, the Bible promises that -

"... the gates of hell shall not prevail against us" –

- but the Bible was speaking of the CHURCH – not us as individual Christians. Read in its entirety, the verse says:

"... upon this rock [meaning Christ] I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it [meaning the CHURCH]."

It's the CHURCH against which the gates of hell shall not prevail! – not you as an individual!

PART 8
NONETHELESS ...

INTRODUCTION

Despite all this – ie., (1) the pertinent Scriptures and (2) the "facts on the ground," we feel compelled to continue our attempt to establish meaningful church-lives in the United States, if only because of the sincerity of many of those who continue to believe it is possible to do so.

There are two different ways we at Antipas are attempting to establish such church-life expressions in America. You can involve yourself in our attempt in the following manner:

  • ADULLUM'S CAVE

    Our dear brother-in-the-Lord, Fred Palmquist - a FOUNDING MEMBER of Antipas Ministries - has felt led of the Lord to attempt to establish a meaningful church-life in Sacramento – proving that there still might exist some water in the desert – ie., that there are a few watering holes left in the wilderness.

FRED PALMQUIST'S
DESERT OASIS

Sophia Scholl

  • ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO HAVE THE COURAGE OF SOPHIE SCHOLL

    Have the courage of Sophia Scholl: PASS OUT OUR FLYERS. It could very well turn out to be a way that the names gleaned can be re-directed back to you; in this way – and over time – you can build up a group in your area to stand with you in your efforts to establish a meaningful church-life.

Both of these "spiritual paths" (as it were) present difficulties and dangers; indeed, the first "path" listed above may very well force you to move to another location in order to establish a viable church-life. But if you are intent on staying in the U.S., you had better move fast with regard to these alternatives. Time is running out, not only for you, but for your children and loved-ones as well.

Finally -

More next time.

God bless all of you.

We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN" WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank" insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned - a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners in the abject poverty that American corporations have imposed on the peoples and nations the American military machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE."
