False Prophet: Ecumenicism

Loud is the cry for unity.  Unity among Christians, unity among all religions, unity among nations, unity within nations.  The cry is loud because unity brings peace.

However, missing in all the cries for unity and peace is the cry for truth.  Unity and peace without truth are false.  Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”  (Matthew 10:34).  When praying to the Father for His followers,  Jesus prayed, “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”  (John 17:16-17).

Given to the Apostle John in approximately 95 AD, the Book of Revelation must be understood to understand the days in which we live.  Jesus gives us the outline for the book in Revelation 1:19.

  1. has seen Ch 1                             the Revelation of Jesus Christ
  2. which are Ch 2 & 3                   present
  3. which shall be Ch 4-22           future

The seven letters to the seven churches dictated to the Apostle John by the Lord Jesus Christ, the period of time in Revelation 1:19 known as “the things which are” before the period of time known as “the things which shall be hereafter,” foretells Church history.  The sequence of the letters is of utmost importance in that in only that sequence do they map to Church history.

Ephesus:          Apostolic Church            30 – 100  (1st century)

Smyrna:           Persecuted Church        100 – 312  (2nd, 3rd)

Pergamum       Imperial Chuch             312 – 606  (4th – 6th)

Thyatira           Papal Church                 606 – Tribulation  (7th – )

Sardis              Reformed Church       1520 – Tribulation  (16th – )

Philadelphia    Missionary Church      1750 – Rapture  (18th – )

Laodicea         Apostate Church         1900 – Tribulation  (20th – )

The over-riding characteristics of the churches are:

Ephesus:          Pre-occupied:  neglected priorities, left 1st love

Smyrna:           Persecuted:  satanic oppression, persecuted

Pergamum:      Politically Correct:  religious and compromising,                                                                                             a perverted marriage

Thyatira:          Prosperous…but adulterous:  worldly, love affair                                                                                             with Jezebel

Sardis:             Powerless:  spiritual apathy, dead

Philadelphia:   Persevering:  small, faithful, raptured

Laodicea:        Putrid:  lukewarm

Still on earth in these end times are Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.   Clearly, according to Jesus Christ Who is dictating these letters, these churches are NOT on the same page.  They may seek unity under one leader but it will be a false unity because Truth (a Person, John 14:6) is excluded.

Beware the man-centered ecumenical movement sweeping the earth these days.  Be very discerning, not dull (“lazy”) of hearing (Hebrews 5:11-14), when you hear the words of the Pope or Rick Warren.  They are saying things contrary to the words of Jesus Christ in Revelation 2-3 and in so doing are luring “Christianity” into the One World Religion led by the False Prophet (foretold in Revelation 13) and destroyed by The Truth (Revelation 17).

Will we listen to the ear-tickling words of man  (2 Timothy 4:1-4) to our own harm or the ear-tingling Word of God  (1 Samuel 3:11, 2 Kings 21:12, Jeremiah 19:3) to our eternal good?

There can be no unity apart from truth.  Therefore, genuine unity and genuine peace will be possible only when Truth establishes His kingdom on earth and reigns on His Throne in Jerusalem (Revelation 19-20).

False Prophet: the image of God

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

The Word of God declares in Genesis 1:26-27 (above) that man…male and female…is created in the image of God.  And the two became one flesh  (Genesis 2:24).  The Word of God clearly presents God’s exclusive definition of marriage:  one man and one woman.

In our days, the “image of God” is being attacked by the tsunami of “legalized” (in whose eyes and by whose law?) homosexual marriage.  We, Adam’s race, are shaking our fist at our Creator and spitting in His eye.

By saying “God is not afraid of new things” when speaking of the deep divide in Roman Catholic Church leadership over homosexual marriage (of which he is in favor), Pope Francis mistakenly thinks:

1) God changes His mind, morality, and Word. Yet the Bible says, “For I am the LORD, I change not.” (Malachi 3:6)

2) There are such things as “new things.” Yet the Bible says, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9)

3) New is good. Yet the Bible says, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)

The man is a false teacher, misrepresenting the Almighty God.

To those in the Roman Catholic Church, Jesus is saying to you, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.” (Revelation 18:4) Do not hestitate…flee!!! Flee to a church that teaches the entire counsel of God, from Genesis to Revelation so you will know what the unchanging God says. The Word of God is the Truth (John 17:17, John 14:6).
