"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.

The 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."]


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).]

Hitler continued:

"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.).]

This 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."]

Now 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. There’s never been one like it and there never will be one like it in ages to come ... It’s so mighty that there’s 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? or anti-Christ's?


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: "Master’s of the Faith!" "Manifest Sons of God!" The "Manchild Company!" The "First Fruits!" "Joel’s Army!" The "Overcomers!" - "GOD-MEN" who, as Paul Cain says, will be able to walk through walls just as Jesus did (cf. John 20:19-29):

"So my point is this, that there will be a manifestation of the sons and daughters of God. And it won’t be this baloney that we’ve heard of in the past; I mean, there’s been a few people tried to walk through a wall like this over here and knocked their brains loose, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about a manifested son of God; if anyone walks through this wall over here, they’re not going to tell you about it - I mean, they’re just going to do it. And sons of God don’t tell you they’re sons of God, they’ll 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.]

This "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 Movement."]

"Blow the trumpet in Zion!" the cry goes out from the leaders of the church:

"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 [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."]


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 Deere writes:

"When this army [of Christian supermen] comes, it will be large and mighty. It’s so mighty that there’s 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, that -

"... 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."


It 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 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 Reich]."

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.


Himmler 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 be subjected:

"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 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.

The 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.

Rushdoony 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 God’s 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."]


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 God’s 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."

It 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 Leadership."]



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 Christ’s 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, Rushdoony writes:

"In winning a nation to the gospel, the sword as well as the pen must be used."


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 being’s likeness to God. It was man’s 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 up -

"... 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: 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)."]

BUT 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 Christ’s 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 MAD.


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 god’s 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;" "Joel’s 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 Christianity."]

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)

Yes! - 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."]


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:

"That’s who we are; we’re Jesus ..." [Please see our article, "The Obermenschen (Supermen) of Kenneth Hagin, Bennie Hinn, and John Wimber."]

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."


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 God’s 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?" 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.]

Hitler said:

"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 Order System.]

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.


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’."

What 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."]


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 it.]

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."


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.


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." (Eph. 6:12)


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! -




Jesus said:

"... 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 be saved.

"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 God."

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." (Luke 11:23)


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)


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 following account:

"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."

She continues:

"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 IT."

Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Bennie Hinn and Oral Roberts couldn't have said it better.


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 writes,

"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)


Nonetheless, 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]." (Rev. 18:2)

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."]


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)


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 shame:

"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. 4:1-2)

"Seducing spirits" - the same ones that so bewitched Germany, who lurk about in our churches, and who in the "LAST DAYS" (2 Tim. 3:1) -

"... 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. (Rev. 18:2)


The Bible continues:


"... that ... cause the seat of violence to come near ..." (Amos 6:1, 3)

Woe 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]." (Amos 6:4-6)

Woe 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.


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 Bennie Hinn.


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 compassion."

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.


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)

The 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.]

The 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 Weimar Republic, 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!

Between 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 war.

A 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."]


To 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."]

There 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.]

Now, 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 Revelation 18:4:

"... 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)

Still, 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)


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)


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.

"And 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 Week."]

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!


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." (Heb. 10:31)

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.]


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 Possessed,

"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.]

Sklar continues:

"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'."


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.

Sklar continues:

"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 IT'."

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]


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)


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 and heralds."

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 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 stature.

"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, 29)

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!

Until then, God bless you,
