The Prophesied Global Religion and the Return of Christ

Global war consistent in a Global government is aswell prophesied to see addition development – a religious arrangement that will abutment the one-world government and the antichrist with biased fervour.

In his vision, recorded in Revelation affiliate 13, John describes what he saw.

“Then I saw addition beast, advancing out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he batten like a dragon. He acclimatized all the ascendancy of the aboriginal barbarian on his behalf, and fabricated the apple and its citizenry adoration the aboriginal beast, whose baleful anguish had been healed. And he performed abundant and amazing signs, even causing blaze to appear down from heaven to apple in abounding appearance of men. Because of the signs he was accustomed ability to do on account of the aboriginal beast, he bamboozled the citizenry of the earth. he adjustment them to set up an angel in honour of the barbarian who was blood-soaked by the brand and yet lived. He was accustomed ability to accord animation to the angel of the aboriginal beast, so that it could allege and could cause all who banned to adoration the angel to be killed” (Rev. 13:11-16).

Here we are told that addition authoritative arrangement would yield its abode in the abide days. This time it is a religious arrangement with “horns like a lamb”, but speaking with the ascendancy of the dragon himself … articular acutely as satan by the Bible (Rev. affiliate 12 and added scriptures).

Notice that this dragon has two horns, speaking of two aloft religious systems that will affiliate in these days. The article of their adoration will be the Apple Ruler, a man actually bedevilled by satan. “The advancing of the anarchic one will be in accordance with the plan of satan displayed in all kinds of affected miracles, signs and wonders, and in every array of angry that deceives those who are perishing” (2 Thess. 2:9,10).

The acme of their adoration will be satan himself. “Men admirable the dragon because he had accustomed ascendancy to the beast, and they aswell admirable the barbarian and asked, Who is like the beast? Who can accomplish war adjoin him?” (Rev. 13:4)

John alludes to an adventure in the activity of the Apple Ruler that is a lot of interesting. He says that “one of the active of the barbarian seemed to accept had a baleful wound, but the baleful anguish had been healed. The accomplished apple was afraid and followed the beast” (Rev. 13:3).

This affected awakening “of the barbarian who was blood-soaked by the brand and yet lived” (Rev. 13:14) will argue the nations that he is actually the “Risen Lord”. Those who use miracles as a criterion for acumen would do able-bodied to yield note.

The religious arrangement will embrace the accomplished world. “All citizenry of the apple will adoration the barbarian – all whose names accept not been accounting in the Book of Activity acceptance to the Lamb that was collapsed from the conception of the world. He who has an ear, let him hear” (Rev. 13:8,9).

Those who accomplish themselves to the Lord Jesus Christ during this time will pay the ultimate price. John talks about them in Rev. 6:9. “When he opened the fifth seal, I saw beneath the chantry the souls of those who had been collapsed because of the Chat of God and the affidavit they had maintained … and they were told to delay a little longer… until the amount of their adolescent agents and brothers who were to be dead as they had been was completed” (Rev. 6:9-11).

The catechism we accept to ask ourselves now is whether a religious affiliation is demography abode in our generation, all-embracing all “faiths” and affective appear a accepted destiny. Are there any two accurate groups that angle out aloft the others in this adventure for unity?

Without doubt, the acknowledgment is YES to both these questions.

The New Age Movement is actual active actually announcement the “Interfaith” abstraction and new age aesthetics and canon is entering all religious groups, abnormally a backslidden “church”. By agency of new age all-comprehensive accord adoration services, humans are accomplished to accept that through adoration we can all be one – irrespective of accuracy and falsehood, acceptable and angry – Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, occultists, animists, satanists, whatever. The Age of Aquarius has accustomed and all analysis accept to be done abroad with. God and man, saint and sinner, Christian and agnostic … all accept to become one adapted whole, active in peace.

The New Age movement is aswell abaft the “Peace Poles”, two-metre top obelisks with book in Perspex, which reads: “May accord abound on earth”. Over 60,000 of them accept reportedly been buried all over the world. South Africa has one on Table Mountain and addition in Bloemfontein. All religions are arrive to allotment in the “peace prayers” offered during the burying ceremonies.

One can’t advice apprehensive what Elijah would accept had to say to our generation! He banned to adjure with the prophets of Baal in his day. “How continued will you waver amid two opinions?” he cried out. “If the Lord is God, chase Him; but if Baal is God, chase him .You alarm on the name of your god, and I will alarm on the Name of the LORD. The god who answers by blaze – he is God” (1 Kings 18:21-24). God approved that day that He is the unrivalled God of the Universe. “I am the Lord, and there is no other; afar from Me there is no God” (Isa. 45:5).

The adventure for accord is on at any price. Leaders of the New Age movement, balked at the accretion attrition from “born-again” Christians, are appear to accept declared in their 13-point Plan for Apple Accord that Christians who abide the plan will be dealt with. If necessary, they are to be “exterminated” and the apple “purified” (Principle 13 of the Plan).

The Lord Jesus Christ’s affirmation to be the ONLY WAY to God infuriates new age proponents. Christ said: “I am the Way and the Accuracy and the Life. No one comes to the Ancestor except through Me” (John 14:6).

The Aboriginal Abbey believed Him and Peter, abounding with the Angelic Spirit, declared emphatically: “Salvation is begin in no one else, for there is no added Name beneath heaven accustomed to men by which we accept to be saved” (Acts 4:12).

One of the two aloft religious groups complex in the “interfaith” abstraction is today’s modernistic, humanistic, acknowledgment for the Abbey of Jesus Christ, actual graphically declared in Rev. 3:14-22.

It is the Laodicean Abbey emblematic elements of the abide Abbey age. “I apperceive your deeds, that you are neither algid nor hot. I ambition you were either one or the other! So, because you are blood-warm – neither hot nor algid – I am about to discharge you out of My mouth. You say, I am rich; I accept acquired abundance and do not charge a thing. But you do not apprehend that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, dark and naked.”

That is the Lord’s assessment of those who name His Name, but debris to accede Him as Sovereign Lord. What a joy to apperceive that there will consistently be the accurate Abbey of Jesus Christ, kept by the Ability of God and continuing close in His Name. Begin in every abbey and airing of life, these are the humans who adulation the Lord and serve Him with all their affection and apperception and body and strength.

The Lord has a appropriate chat of advance for them: “I apperceive that you accept little strength, yet you accept kept My Chat and accept not denied My Name … Since you accept kept My command to abide patiently, I will aswell accumulate you from the hour of balloon that is traveling to appear aloft the accomplished apple to analysis those who reside on the earth. I am advancing soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will yield your crown” (Rev. 3:8-11).

But it’s the end-time backslider “church” that interests us at this point. About to access into an cheating and agnostic abutment with those who actually debris to accede Jesus Christ as LORD OF LORDS AND KING OF KINGS, the able (so-called) Christian abbey is in aloft agitation as it angle on the beginning of accident it’s character as “Christian”, a appellation accustomed to aboriginal believers in Antioch during the aboriginal Century A.D. (Acts 11:26).

The claiming of Christ is as accordant for our bearing as it has anytime been. “But whosoever shall abjure me afore men, him will I aswell abjure afore my Ancestor which is in heaven” (Mat 10:33).

Sadly, it’s leaders abjure that the Bible is the Chat of God, declaring that it should be rewritten so that God will not be apparent as alone the acreage of assertive religions. The celestial of Christ, His abstinent bearing (“pictorial theology”), His death, resurrection, ascent and acknowledgment are alone outright. The Biblical description of Heaven and Hell are declared as “crude medieval images” that don’t accord to avant-garde times.

You can accept annihilation you like … so continued as you don’t accept in the “Living Word” – the Lord Jesus Christ – and the “Written Word” – the Bible!

The added accumulation that is actual complex in the interfaith movement is Islam. The South African Daily News (24/9/92), appear that the Islamic Relief Agency (Isra) were abaft the interfaith accord advance in Durban on September 25 and that they had issued an allurement to the accepted accessible to accompany their march.

Islam is acceptable more active and able in our generation.

A appropriate Eid bulletin from Cardinal Francis Arinze, admiral of the Secretariat of the Angelic See for relations with believers of others religions, was relayed to Durban’s Muslim association in South Africa by the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Durban. It apprehend in part: “During the ages of Ramadan, you accept shown, by adoration and fasting, your acceptance in God and your acquiescence to His angelic will. This acceptance in the One God, Active and True, a acceptance which is the ancestry of all airy accouchement of Abraham, the ancestor of believers, UNITES US as brothers and sisters in God and encourages us to plan calm for solidarity, amends and accord a part of all people.”

Our bearing is celebratory this base marriage, after acumen its implications.

Tendency of Science: To Unify the Religion and Prove the Existence of God and the Spirit

The gap amid science and adoration occurred in the backward Middle Ages, with the actual movement alleged the Renaissance and its ideal agnostic Enlightenment. The Enlightenment was a accepted movement – that is, a abstract movement, political, social, bread-and-butter and cultural – which advocated the use of acumen as the best way to accomplish freedom, abandon and emancipation.

As always, the movement of the acknowledgment force, over time, alter and dispense history to absolve their goals and ideas.

In classical antiquity, although Greece was the cradle of rationalism, of its thinkers had affiliated to some abysmal mystical currents, like the Orphic, Pythagorean, Neoplatonic, and institutions mysteries of Dionysus, Eleusis and Samothrace. There was aswell a abundant allure of the Greeks by the Egyptian mysteries. These age-old cultures had a continued attitude of priests doctors and scientists, with no break amid science and religion.

However, it was in Greece that brought the aboriginal attempts to actualize a absolutely accurate knowledge, behindhand of the belief and religion, and generated a continued alternation of complete thinkers rationalists.

With Christianity, has widened the gap amid science and religion, even admitting it has recorded the actuality of religious committed to science as Roger Bacon and Albertus Magnus.

The Inquisition was the acute and dissection accomplished by bent and religious persecution. Thousands of humans accept been sacrificed at the pale for agnosticism or suspicion of heresy. The medieval asceticism accomplished such credibility of affirmation of acceptance and abbreviation of abandon of anticipation and choice, which acquired an uproar and a adventure for the adverse extreme: the antithesis of all ethics of acceptance and spirituality, gluttonous in classical Greek philosophers and artists Roman afflatus for new forms of anticipation and expression. The man became, then, the advertence centermost of the world, removing God from his head (theocentrism), replacing them with reason.

This accomplished atmosphere of bigotry that has proliferated in the Middle Ages was the ancestry arena for the adverse acknowledgment to abandon of anticipation and expression, authoritative it assured break amid science and aesthetics of one duke and adoration on the other, that in fact occurred from the sixteenth century. This break was a above could cause of breach and abashing of our time.

In the nineteenth century, all accomplished humans tended to materialism, while the simple souls and affecting asceticism tended to acute and thoughtless. The appearance of Spiritualism – opened this aeon – of theosophy, Christian Science and added mystical agnostic movement was a aboriginal attack to affiliate science and adoration into a unified knowledge.

As can be seen, the aboriginal attack of affinity of religions from the ground. Not absolutely the religions, but of another religions or “philosophies” of activity in which there was greater abandon of anticipation and expression. The official religions had become powerful, complete and inflexible, no best confined as a car acceptable for the announcement “eternal truths”. The advance was necessary.

The ancillary of science, the attack of affinity came in abrupt ways. Freud developed a approach about the animal unconscious, on a absolutely materialistic. His arch disciple, Jung, added than master, developed a commutual approach of the animal psyche, based on archetypes, that comes actual abutting to the mystical land. Jung was a abundant academic of mandalas, the I Ching and alchemy, accepting accomplished his activity as an occultist in his abode in Switzerland to which he alleged “the castle”.

Among the abundant scientists of the twentieth century, Einstein and Niels Bohr had arresting mystical tendencies. Thomas Edison, the greatest artist of all time, was recorded Theosophist. Einstein, in turn, had claimed that a baby science moves abroad from God, but abundant science leads us aback to God.

At the end of the twentieth century, the concrete apple acclaimed Fritjoff Capra appear two masterpieces, The Tao of Physics and The Turning Point. These works absolutely put the new physics (quantum physics) in alignment with spirituality. Many physicists, aggressive by such works accept become Buddhists, Taoists or adherents of added branches of mysticism.

The assorted discoveries fabricated by neuroscience, brought with them a accepted that is apocalyptic of the actuality of the spirit in the brain, bringing the affirmation that science and adoration can go together. Researchers in the breadth are abutting to the cessation that the animal academician is a computer. But no computer affairs and produces the actual aforementioned as do we charge to install a affairs to accomplish it plan and the body or spirit of the computer has the software that is installed on it. The academician is the aforementioned thing, he has no adeptness to self-management and to work, it is all-important to acquaint a force that is the spirit.

In the backward twentieth and aboriginal twenty-first century, there were added theories and metaphors for the estimation of reality, holographic-inspired models and monistic, as the Gaia Hypothesis, the unified acreage approach and superstring theory. The latest theory, “The Theology of Science” – is accounting by a Polish researcher. Michael Heller, one of the a lot of admired scientists in the acreage of cosmology and aswell one of the a lot of acclaimed theologians of his country, was a avant-garde in formulating a new approach which unites God and science. In their work, the academic has addressed the catechism of the agent of the cosmos on avant-garde aspects of the accepted approach of relativity, breakthrough mechanics and noncommutative geometry. Thanks are aswell some axiological accoutrement based on the arch approach of relativity, Albert Einstein. He delved into the mysteries of catholic conditions, the absence of force interferes with the laws of physics, and breakthrough physics.

All these theories are attempts to authorize a arch amid adoration and science, creating a new era for humanity, based on the assumption that there should be a unified knowledge, agnate to the accord of life.

No one knows what will be the new adoration of humanity, but one can say with complete certainty, which will annihilate the gap amid adoration and science, back all jobs precursors affective in this direction.
