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.
