Ephesians 5:11 ...'And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.'
Cashless Society and ID Cards Being Advanced Throughout Africa
"Nigeria's National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) will issue 13m MasterCard-branded and payment-enabled national ID smart cards as part of a pilot programme. This programme is the largest ever roll-out of a formal electronic payment solution in Nigeria." (source)
"Rwandans and Kenyans could soon start travelling to either country using their national identity cards, immigration officials have said." (source)
"Rwanda: Cashless Economy Drive Gains Momentum ... As part of the central bank's effort to promote a cashless economy, commercial banks are being advised to encourage mobile banking platforms." (source)
"Ghana: Achieving cashless society is possible ... Mr Simon Dornoo, Managing Director of Ghana Commercial Bank (GCB), said he envisions a society where goods and services are paid for by cards, electronic fund transfers or online rather than with cash or cheque." (source)
This world is fast heading towards a time when the mark of the beast can be enforced, in which anyone who refuses will simply have their "electronic only" access to their finances switched off! Meaning they will be unable to "buy or sell" (Revelation 13). On top of this we have people like the Roman Catholic pope calling for a one world financial authority. The final prophecies of the Bible are soon to be fulfilled friends!
Interesting Quote: "But since Saturday, not Sunday, is specified in the Bible, isn't it curious that non-Catholics [Protestants] who profess to take their religion directly from the Bible and not the Church, observe Sunday instead of Saturday? Yes, of course, it is inconsistent; but this change was made about fifteen centuries before Protestantism was born, and by that time the custom was universally observed. They have continued the custom, even though it rests upon the authority of the Catholic Church and not upon an explicit text in the Bible. That observance remains as a reminder of the Mother Church from which the non-Catholic sects broke away - like a boy running away from home but still carrying in his pocket a picture of his mother or a lock of her hair." ("father" John O'Brien, The Faith of Millions)
The above words are direct from Babylon, the MOTHER of harlots. And those harlot churches are now returning to their mother.

Just check out 2 of these "signs"
Sign 1. I KNOW THE TRUTH "If someone believes that they know God's truth and they cannot be wrong, watch out ... 'Healthy' religions acknowledge that sincere people can disagree about even basic truths."
Sign 2. THE END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR "Many people are fascinated by the idea that the heavens will open soon because the end is near. That end-times theology can turn lethal."
Amazing! These are two main characteristics of God's end time remnant church and they are being attacked. Friends, the time is coming soon when God's remnant people will be seen as trouble makers and evil because of the TRUTH that they proclaim! But then Jesus Christ proclaimed the truth and He was treated just the same! Stay focused and keep building on your most holy faith in our Lord, Saviour and soon coming KING, Christ Jesus!
And keep proclaiming the TRUTH!
"Today US military operations are involved in scores of countries across all the five continents. The US military is the world's largest landlord, with significant military facilities in nations around the world ... Some of these are vast, such as the Al Udeid Air Force Base in Qatar, the forward headquarters of the United States Central Command, which has recently been expanded to accommodate up to 10,000 troops and 120 aircraft."
Revelation 13 speaks of a nation (earth beast) that would arise which would be "lamb like" to begin with (Christ Like), but then would end up "speaking like a dragon". There is only one nation on earth that matches the earth beast of Revelation 13, and that nation is America!
"Massive US-led military drills began in the Persian Gulf in a second such show of maritime might in under a year ... The US Navy has issued a statement that the mass exercises are aimed at enhancing capability to preserve freedom of navigation in international waterways ... The 40 other countries participating in the drills have not yet been named."
We are seeing Bible prophecy being fulfilled today. Revelation 13 reveals that America (the earth beast) will be the nation to cause the world to take the mark of the beast (mark of the Roman Catholic Papacy - sea beast). And which nation on earth is the one leading the way in the so called "war against terror"? America! And any nations like Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, etc. who are not towing the line with the rest of the world are being systematically taken apart. And once the "United Nations" (lead by America) have enough control of the world, we will then see America cause the world to take the mark of the beast.
We are living in perilous times friends and we need to be grounded firmly on the Rock which is our Lord Jesus Christ. His Word reveals the truth, so that we can be guarded against the deceptions that Satan has in store for the world in these last days. Are you seeking the truth and living by it? (John 8:32)
"The government also made May 1 'Law Day, U.S.A.' - a special moment for the reaffirmation of Americans' loyalty to the United States, and the cultivation of respect for the law ... The president is requested to issue a proclamation on May 1 calling on all public officials to display the flag and inviting the people of the United States to observe Law Day, U.S.A., with appropriate ceremonies."
Bible prophecy tells us in Revelation 13 that one day in the very near future we are going to have a very important choice to make. The government of America with support from other nations will enforce the mark of the Roman Papal beast and we will then have a choice to either be loyal to the government, or loyal to Jehovah, our Creator God. Yes, we are to submit to the laws of the land, BUT ONLY if those laws do not go against the laws of our Heavenly Father, because we are to be obedient to the laws of God first.
So will you be loyal to Christ Jesus and your Heavenly Father? Or will you submit to the government and accept the mark of the beast when it is enforced? Well, let me show you the outcome of putting the laws of the land above the laws of God:
Revelation 14:9-11 ...'And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.'
"We must join together and reassert in an age of relativism that there are objective truths which can be known, principles by which we can form truly free societies, and rights endowed upon us by God. The American founders carried such a vision into the experiment in ordered liberty called the United States of America. However, they did not come up with this ennobling and enabling vision on their own. They received it from the treasury of Western civilization."
Actually, the truth is, the original vision of liberty in America came from the fact that the Roman Catholic Church was persecuting anyone in Europe who would not bow down to her supposed "authority". Therefore the people fled to the shores of America to escape the wickedness of the Roman church.
Bible prophecy says that the Papal Church (Beast of Revelation 13) will regain power again soon and then she will return to her persecuting ways of the dark ages.
God calls His people to COME OUT of Babylon and "be ye separate", not to unite with her.
"Terrorism. Chaos. Fear of the future. In the age of Obama, America is undergoing a fundamental transformation - that much everyone knows. But what few seem to realize about this transformation is that the sheer stress of living in today's America is driving tens of millions to the point of illness, depression and self-destruction."
Luke 21:25-26 ...'And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.'
We are living in the last days friends, and our only hope is in Christ Jesus. Have you repented of your sins and submitted your life to Him yet? Do you know how to be saved?
"UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday hailed Pope Francis as a spiritual leader of the world ... It is very important to meet a spiritual leader of the world, Ban said at the start of his meeting with the Argentine pope ... The Holy See and the UN share common goals and ideas."
These are perilous times we live in. Please stay alert, be sober and prayerfully seek the truth (Jesus Christ), as the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
"Vassula Ryden has seen the supernatural world and experienced the hidden forces that affect every moment of our lives, regularly hearing direct messages from God that put these images in context. Now, through her new book, 'Heaven is Real, But so is Hell,' Ryden is sharing details about these encounters, addressing questions about life and death including the nature of Heaven and hell, the character of God and the End of Times ... Doomsday prophecies are not the focus of what Ryden believes God wants her to share. Instead, through her book, Ryden seeks to deliver a message emphasizing God's love and His desire that all people have an intimate relationship with Him. In addition, she stresses the desire of Christ for unity among Christian denominations."
This is one of the main end time goals of Satan now ... to get all denominations and religions to unite in this ecumenical movement, "for the sake of peace", which is spearheaded by Babylon, the Mother of Harlots. Catholic mystics predict that "Mary" will return and unite all religions for the return of Jesus. And both Fatima and Medjugorje claim that Mary will make a return. But those of us who know the Bible truth, know that Mary is in her grave awaiting the resurrection at the second coming of Christ Jesus.
Friends, please seek the Bible TRUTH, as we are living in spiritually 'Perilous Times', making sure you are not deceived by this call for unity."
THUS SAITH THE LORD ... "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3)
THUS SAITH THE LORD ... "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate." (2 Corinthians 6:17)
THUS SAITH THE LORD ... "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins." (Revelation 18:4)
"There is an unbreakable unity between Sacred Scripture and Tradition, recalled Pope Francis in his speech to the members of the Pontifical Biblical Commission ... The interpretation of the Holy Scriptures cannot be only an individual scientific effort, but must always confront itself with, be inserted within and authenticated by the living tradition of the Church."
The falsehoods and lies continue to stream from the leaders of this church. So what the Pope is saying is that by prayerful study of the scriptures yourself, God will not show you the truth, as you need the Roman Catholic Church and it's tradition to be able to understand. THAT is a rejection of the power and grace of God! And what did Jesus Christ say Himself to leaders just like this in His day?
Matthew 15:3 ...'Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?'
2 Timothy 2:15 ...'Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.'
You see! No church traditions needed! But there is a very good reason why the Roman Catholic Leaders have always told their followers that they cannot understand scripture for themselves. Because if they did study for themselves, they would see that the Roman Catholic Church is Babylon, the Mother of Harlots, and the pope is that "man of sin".
END TIME DECEPTION!
"You're about to go to heaven and live to tell about it. And your story will become the subject of scientific research ... Your life flashes before you like an epic movie. The End. You leave your body and look down at it. People are bending over it. Someone is sobbing uncontrollably ... You follow it through a tunnel to a place much more vividly real and spectacular than the banner Sunday afternoon you just left behind. You are sure you have arrived in the hereafter. Weeks later, you wake up to the steady beeps of an EKG monitor next to your hospital bed."
The doctrine of the immortality of the soul is one of Satan's most deceptive doctrines, of which the vast majority of the Christian world has been taken in by it. This false doctrine has also given rise to spiritualism, which continues to grow around the world. And we are going to see more and more of this kind of news report as Satan is going to use this false doctrine to deceive the world in the last days.
When we die, we know NOTHING .. (Ecclesiastes 9:5,10)
Please study this doctrine for yourself in the Bible and pray that God will show you the truth. The truth being that we were NOT GIVEN a soul when we were created, instead we BECAME living souls with the breath of God in us (See Genesis 2:7). And when we die, we return to the dust of the ground from where we were made (see Genesis 3:19). And there we dwell until the resurrection at the second coming (See Isaiah 26:19).
"A new dance craze that has become a fad around the world has now exploded among evangelical churches and Christian colleges nationwide ... The dance is called 'The Harlem Shake' ... According to The Independent, the move actually originated years ago with a man named Albert Leopold Boyce, who would entertain the crowds during halftime at basketball games in the Harlem, New York area ... He would be drunk, and when you went to get him to get off the court, he would start laughing and performing the shake, explained friend Tony Arias."
This is so sad to see. The majority of these churches have become part of Babylon and utter confusion reigns within them. The line of distinction between these professing Christians and the ungodly is hardly distinguishable now. The churches love what the world loves.
And the amazing thing is, those of us who stand firm on the NEVER CHANGING Word of God are looked upon as fanatics. And as time goes on, we will become the hated ones, because we won't go along with the rest of the world.
God calls us to be a "holy and peculiar" people. And He tells us to "not learn the way of the heathen". Time and time again, the Jews of old would fall into heathen ways. And time and time again, God would warn them to turn back to Him. The professed Christian church around the world is in the same position now. She has been seduced by the world and is largely unfit for the Kingdom of Heaven. So will you heed the warning from God and turn back to Him, so that you may cross over into the promised land?
"Christians who believe the Bible is the literal word of God and others who do not agree with the changes taking place in America could find themselves under scrutiny by law enforcement authorities and Homeland Security."
Revelation 13 confirms that those of us who stand firm upon our most holy faith, rather than bowing down to the beast powers will be targeted people. Friends, knowing the time we live in, it's high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Romans 13:11).
The time of trouble is coming and we need an experience with Jesus Christ like we've never had before. Please give your all to Him each and every day, and He will keep you in the time of trouble to come.
"The survey, which was conducted by Public Policy Polling, asked a sample of American voters about a number of conspiracy theories ... The study revealed that 13 percent of respondents thought Obama was the antichrist, while another 13% were not sure - and so were at least appeared to be open to the possibility that he might be."
So what does this survey show? It shows that AT LEAST one in four Americans do not know their Bibles and that at least one in four have turned away from their "Protestant" roots. How does it show this? Because the Bible clearly reveals that the main antichrist system is not just one man, but a religious system. And that religious system is the Roman Catholic Papacy. This is what the great Protestant reformers knew and this is why they fled to the shores of America - to flee the persecution dished out by the antichrist popes ("THE MAN OF SIN").
"The mission of Tom Peterson and Catholics Come Home to bring souls home to Jesus and the church is critically important during this challenging time in our history. I fully support this New Evangelization project. - Rick Warren"
During the great Protestant reformation, God revealed precious Bible truths to the reformers and led many of His people out of the Roman Catholic Church. But many of those Protestant denominations held onto some Roman Catholic doctrines and ended up becoming "daughters" of the Roman Church, which Revelation 17 prophesied: "And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots."
The aim of this evangelization project led by the Roman Catholic Church (Babylon) is to bring those "daughters" home. And leaders like Rick Warren are deceiving many people and leading them into Satan's end time trap.
"The Protestant churches are in great darkness, or they would discern the signs of the times. The Roman Church is employing every device to extend her influence and increase her power in preparation for a fierce and determined conflict to regain control of the world, to re-establish persecution, and to undo all that Protestantism has done." (E.G.White, The Great Controversy)
"Crystal McVea, 36, met her maker after her heart stopped over three years ago and now she is sharing her testimony about her experiences in the book 'Waking Up in Heaven' ... However, McVea's story is not about a perfect Christian woman who went to heaven after making all of the right decisions in life. Instead, McVea's memoir tells a tale of poverty, child molestation, bad relationships, abortion and the constant questioning of God that is sure to resonate with Christians, non-believers and everyone in between."
WHAT A DECEPTION THIS IS. Not only is the mainstream teaching of an immortal soul that lives on after we die a false (and dangerous) teaching. This also portrays that just about anyone can get into heaven, when 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 and Revelation 22:14-15 confirms otherwise.
There was another recent article here about another woman who supposedly went to heaven after drowning. Friends, this deception of the "immortal soul" is going to be used by Satan in the last days. Please see the truth about what happens at death here.
Those who have died are in their grave awaiting the resurrection.
"Two U.S. senators met with President Obama on Thursday to push for a national ID card with biometric information such as a fingerprint, hand scan, or iris scan that all employers would be required to verify."
As we have said many times before, this isn't the mark of the beast, as the mark is all to do with worship, not a literal mark. But these things need to be put in place in order to help the beast power to enforce the mark.
"The record number of sea mammals washing ashore on the Southern California coast has marine biologists baffled, and rescue centers beyond capacity ... As of late March, 948 sea mammals, mostly sea lion pups, have left the water for the beach ... even ventured onto streets and shopping centers several miles from the ocean."
As you will see on our mass animal deaths page, sea creatures are washing ashore dead all over the world. The seas are so polluted now and this phenomenon of "red tide" is appearing all over the place. And what does Bible prophecy say about this?
Hosea 4:3 ...'Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.'
Ezekiel 38:20 ...'the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.'
Zephaniah 1:3 ...'I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked: and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.'
We are living during the last days, and it's time to turn to Christ Jesus, as He is our ONLY hope for the future. Please don't leave it till it's too late. This world is soon to come to an end, but there is still hope through Christ our Lord and Saviour.
"According to new data released by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were 19.7 million new venereal infections in the United States in 2008, bringing the total number of existing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the U.S. at that time to 110,197,000 ... The 19.7 million new STIs in 2008 vastly outpaced the new jobs and college graduates created in the United States that year or any other year on record, according to government data. The competition was not close."
So in 2008, 1 in 3 Americans had a sexually transmitted infection. Add to that the number of people who has diabetes, cancer and other diseases and you are left with a nation (and a world) that is sick and dying! And it isn't going to get any better for this world due to sin against our Heavenly Father and Christ Jesus His Son.
But those who repent and submit to the Lord Jesus and follow Him will have great hope for the future. An eternal future where there is no more tears, sorrow, pain or suffering. Just eternal joy and peace! Please give your life over to Christ Jesus today, as time is running out.
"The most interesting thing about Argentine Pope Francis may be not just that he's the first Latin American to head the Vatican, but also that he may become the Church's biggest champion of interfaith dialogue ever ... I just read his book About Heaven and Earth, which he co-authored in 2010 with Argentine Rabbi Abraham Skorka, and I was struck by the new pope's commitment to not only talk about interfaith dialogue, but to do something about it."
The "wound" of the beast of Revelation 13 began to heal in 1929, when the Vatican regained it's sovereignty. And now the beast is growing stronger and stronger, influencing world leaders and religions, to a point where we will soon see the whole world "wonder after the beast".
"Pope Francis is the first leader of the Roman Catholic church to come from Latin America, and Obama's statement perhaps contained a subtle nod to the growing electoral power in the United States of voters from a Hispanic background ... Religious leaders, too, joined in. Welcome Pope Francis, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio. You have our prayers, said Pastor Rick Warren ... Meanwhile, the World Jewish Congress also issued a statement and praised Bergoglio's past of attending and encouraging inter-faith dialogue and events."
Revelation 18 says that "Mother" Babylon is FALLEN and will receive the plagues and cannot be "reformed"
These evangelical leaders have turned away from the truth that God gave the Protestant reformers. The truth being the Papacy is the antichrist system spoken of in the Bible and the pope being that "man of sin". These leaders are now opening their arms to that man of sin and are leading many, many souls right into Satan's deceptions. Please friends, seek the truth and LIVE BY IT!
Revelation 13:3 ...'And ALL the world wondered after the beast.'
"They need to realize that they, too, have a stake in who is elected pope, because without a strong pope, evangelicals will lose their best allies in the most important cultural and political battles of our age ... Doctrinal differences remain, of course, but the Catholic-evangelical alliance has reshaped American politics ... We do not agree on every issue. But on the essential ones."
We can really see Revelation 13 taking shape now, where the sea beast (Papacy) and the earth beast (America) come together to form an image of the beast and cause the whole world to take the mark of the beast.
Agreeing on the "essential doctrines" alone does not cut it, why? Because it isn't even true! What is an essential doctrine? That we are saved by grace alone through faith in Christ Jesus right? Do you realize that the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church DO NOT teach this? Do you realize that they teach we can ONLY be saved through the Catholic Church? Friends, a great deception is taking place in this world, and we NEED THE TRUTH. WE NEED CHRIST JESUS ALONE (John 14:6).
Amos 3:3 ...'Can two walk together, except they be agreed?'
"the pope exercises what the Catechism of the Catholic Church calls his baptismal priesthood by participating in Christ's mission as priest, prophet and king."
On the paper ballots that the cardinals use to vote for the next pope it reads "Eligo in Summen Pontificem" (I elect as supreme pontiff). So the Catholic Church views the pope as "supreme" priest, prophet and king! And the term "vicar of Christ" used by the pope means "in place of" Christ on earth.
Now let me share with you a common mistake that many Christians make today. They believe that the end time antichrist is going to be this person who rises to power and will OUTWARDLY be AGAINST Christ Jesus. But the true meaning of ANTI-Christ is someone who is "IN PLACE OF" Christ. Someone who sets himself up as "God on earth".
The apostle Paul told us of that "man of sin" who would set himself up in the temple of God (THE CHURCH), declaring that he is God on earth. The Protestant reformers knew who that man of sin and end time antichrist was, and the Word of God PLAINLY reveals who that antichrist power is.
That "anti"-Christ power which would set itself up "IN PLACE OF" Christ is none other than the Papal Church of Rome! With the Pope(s) as that "man of sin"!
