What does the Bible Say?


The Corporate Media has been awash with talk of persecution and martyrdom of Christians.

In Syria.

In the Middle East.

All over the world.

Why is that?

Has the Corporate Media suddenly developed this great love for Christians–a group it absolutely despises?  Is it trying to warn believers?  Do they really believe that “Brotherhood of Man” stuff they’re constantly pushing on the great unwashed?



And no.

It’s all about fear.


The Coming Persecution – This article is a good overview of the stated objectives of the New Age and what its ascendency means to the true believers of Jesus Christ.

That said, this article has much good information about the trees (the New Age component of the coming New World Order spirit of antichrist beast system) but it doesn’t really see the forest (the New Age is but one component; representing the well-promoted face of coming persecution.  The fear of which is meant to herd Christians to something worse than physical persecution.)  Tough as it is for the modern American Christian to believe, there are worse things than physical persecution.

Like eternity in a lake of fire.

But the article gets a lot right, even if the author still holds to some of the mass-marketed eschatology of the Modern American Prophecy Industry. He makes some canny observations. [Emphasis added.]

“The Lord Jesus Christ reveals to us that mystery Babylon will be responsible not only for bringing the Antichrist to power, but for the atrocities of having both Christians and Jews put to death. New Age Babylon is referred to as being “drunk with the blood of the saints” and “the blood of the witnesses of Jesus” (Revelation 17:1-6). Since the great whore of Babylon rides the beast, she fuels his cause with religious terror and spiritual reasons as to why Christians and Jews must be put to death.”

American Christians are being primed with the fear of persecution in order to more easily herd them later into the boxcars of the beast.  To the great relief of the lukewarm Christian, these boxcars will not be headed to a FEMA camp or a place of execution.  For the lukewarm and deceived American pew-sitter, these will not even be literal boxcars–at least not for them.

For the lukewarm and deceived, these boxcars will be headed to a Church! (Maybe it’ll have a coffee shop?)

IF ONLY American church-goers would stumble across the many passages of their Bibles which speak of tribulation and affliction, they would discover that there are far worse things than persecution in the flesh.  Far from being the “wrath of God” as many have been carefully taught, persecution is associated with words like “rejoicing” and “glory.”

“So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure:”
2 Thessalonians 1:4

“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”
2 Corinthians 12:10

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
Matthew 5:11

“For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.”
Mark 13:19

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;”
2 Corinthians 4:17

“Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;”
1 Peter 4:1

End Times Trials, Tribulations, Trouble and Disaster: Put your trust in Jesus

Persecution, Tribulation, Troubles, Trials: What the Bible says to Christians

But those in the end times churches will experience neither persecution nor glory.  And since they will be under a “strong delusion,” the chances of anyone reversing course don’t look so good.

The Bible has repeatedly warned us.  In fact, Isaiah 24 lays out the whole New Age/Whore of Babylon game plan to any willing to read it–particularly verses 17 and 18.

“Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.”
Isaiah 24:17-18

The fear of persecution will drive millions of deluded, lukewarm pew-sitters who play at Christianity into the pit of the end times American Babylonian whore Church.  From the pit of that church, God’s eventual judgments on the earth will snare them.

“I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD.”
Jeremiah 50:24

Not a pretty scenario–and it could be avoided if only Americans had a love for the truth.

But Scripture tells believers that most American who call themselves “Christians” will willingly accept the Babylonian Church “because they received not the love of the truth.”

Back to the New Age.


NEW AGE END TIMES PERSECUTION: The Rider of the Pale Horse?
NEW AGE END TIMES PERSECUTION of the SAINTS: The Rider of the Pale Horse?

Make no mistake: there will be persecution and cleansing under the New Age, New World Order.

“New Age leader, Barbara Marx Hubbard has stated, “people will either change or die,” for “that is the choice.” According to those who would concur with Hubbard, Christians will need to be more open minded so they too can receive the mark of the Antichrist. If they will not join with the global community and its agenda, they will be killed by the “opened minded” New Agers. She states that, “This act is as horrible as killing a cancer cell. It must be done for the sake of the future of the whole. So be it; be prepared for the selection process which is now beginning. We, the elders, have been patiently waiting until the very last moment before the quantum transformation, to take action to cut out this corrupted and corrupting element in the body of humanity. It is like watching a cancer grow; something must be done before the whole body is destroyed…. The destructive one fourth must be eliminated from the social body.”
Barbara Marx Hubbard and the Selection Process

“We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, death… We do this for the sake of the world.”
–Barbara Marx Hubbard, The Book of Co-Creation, p. 59

Of course Hubbard is wrong.  The New Age is not the rider of the pale horse.  The New Age may run beside the pale horse.  Kinda like an annoying rainbow-colored little yapping dog.  For some time the New Age and the Luciferians have very publicly held up large, brightly-colored posters that proclaimed “Hey!  Look at us!  We’re the pale horse!  Fear us! Are you scared yet?  Come on, fear us!”

“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
Revelation 6:8

So the New Age claims that it will be cleansing the planet–and there will be some of that going on–and the “purging (killing)” will be purposely horrific.

“The better to scare you with, my dear.”


WHORE OF BABYLON: Worldwide American Apostate Church
WHORE OF BABYLON: Worldwide American Apostate Church?

But there’s another group who’s also itching to cleanse the earth.

“The way to achieve dominion is not to become “America’s Taliban,” but rather to have kingdom-minded people in every one of the Seven Mountains: Religion, Family, Education, Government, Media, Arts & Entertainment, and Business so that they can use their influence to create an environment in which the blessings and prosperity of the Kingdom of God can permeate all areas of society.”
C. Peter Wagner, The New Apostolic Reformation is not a Cult!, Charisma magazine, Aug 24, 2011

And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
Revelation 17:9

Sounds great!  Little wonder most American pew-sitters won’t have to be herded into such a refuge: they’ll run to it.    Like the New Age, Wagner also talks a lot about “paradigm shifts” and “comfort zones.”  But the dragon’s whore church that the apostate will embrace also talks of a great end times cleansing. [Emphasis added.]

Yet, not all NAR leaders admit to promoting dominionism. Some NAR leaders, such as Mike Bickle of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri, directly deny that they are promoting dominionism or, what he calls, “Dominion Theology.”30 But despite his denial, Bickle’s teachings are in line with “Kingdom Now” dominionism, including his teaching that the end-time church will cleanse the earth of evil. According to Bickle, this feat will be accomplished by end-time Christians — under the leadership of apostles and prophets — who will say “prophetic” prayers that will release the Great Tribulation judgments on the kingdom of the Antichrist.”

New Apostolic Reformation: Influence and Teachings

Totally 100 percent NOT biblical–unless one is talking about the satanic Whore of Babylon Church.

Then it’s completely, absolutely 100 percent biblical.

But since when has not being biblical slowed down antichrist ambitions?  As long as it LOOKS biblical enough to fool most American pew-sitters, it will be close enough for one-world government work.

“The major tenets of the adherents of this sect include the belief that we are living in the final years before the return of Christ. However, they differ from dispensationalists in their belief that they must defeat evil on the earth and purify the existing churches before Jesus can return. Furthermore, the building of this “Kingdom of God” is not to be delayed until after the Rapture, or to be built in a heavenly sphere. They believe that they have a mandate to build the Kingdom in the present and in the physical realm.”
Palin’s Churches and the New Apostolic Reformation

One has to admit it makes little difference who does the actual killing/cleansing: Hubbard’s little New Age Luciferian yapping dog  or the much more dangerous “Satan’s Whore of Babylon worldwide Church of the Signs and Lying Wonders” crew.

The saints will be just as dead.

“And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”
Revelation 13:5,7

“And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”
Daniel 7:25

But the Whore will beckon and offer a safe haven, so that’s where most Americans who congregate in the churches will be. At least they won’t be lonely: they’ll have their strong delusion to keep them company.

That’s pretty much the choice for true believers: death by beheading OR death by being forced to listen to the yak-yak-yak of the Dominionist antichrist Whore of Babylon fake apostles and prophets–and then beheading.

Hate to be the one to break it: Not a lot of wiggle room.

Of course, the REAL choice is between persecution or perdition. But unfortunately, many will be looking to save their lives.

IF ONLY they believed their Bibles.

“Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it”
Luke 17:33

The end times were never about charts and timelines. Or guessing the day and and hour. Or counting the days until the next Jewish feast.  Or temples to be built with human hands. Or fake blood moons. Or guessing the nationality of that scary guy in the AntiChrist suit. Or waiting for a worldwide revival without repentance. Or renouncing the better covenant in favor of the Old under the guise of “Daniel’s 70th week for the Jews.” Or, being comfortably sucked out of Babylon before proving our love for the One who already proved His. Or any of the other cunningly-devised fables.

“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Revelation 12:11

The end times were always about forcing those who honor God and Jesus with their lips to make a real choice.

That choice isn’t to run to the end times satanic whore church of the dragon which will be praying down Satan’s fire and other signs and lying wonders.  If you are in that Church, you’ve already made your choice.

The real choice: Either stand up for Jesus Christ when the whhiizzzzz of the guillotine is in the air.

Or sit down and shut up.

For eternity.

Because if one stands up for Jesus Christ in the end times–the REAL Jesus, not the other Jesus that’s being taught in so many churches in America; not Baby Jesus; not Jesus the Passionate Groom; not Jesus the Presence unleashed in you for POWER or Buddy Jesus the Love-God: the real Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God of the Bible Jesus–there’s not going to be anywhere to hide.

(Unless God, in his sovereign power, has decided you need to be hidden–and if one is worshiping another Jesus, that Jesus has no power to save, either eternally or physically.)

There are those who do make it through.  In spite of what the Dominionists/NAR/IHOPpers teach, there is a rapture–though it takes on a much different form than what 95 percent of America’s worldly church-goers have been spoon-fed.

It’s not the the corrupt Christian Corporate Media version.

For now thankfully, all of that’s in the future…

…for yet a little while longer.
