Little Horn Pt. 1

The “little horn” is a mystery in Bible prophecy that was foretold by the prophet Daniel. The term “little horn” means little king (Daniel 7:7-8 & Daniel 7:23-25).

The focus of this article series is the kingdom of the “little horn” and its religion.
The purpose of the article series is to show the unveiling of Bible prophecy throughout history.

The kingdom of the “little horn” is the last of the world empires, and is also the kingdom that Jesus Christ will judge, and destroy, when he returns to establish his own kingdom on earth. The foretelling of the rise and fall of world empires was given, by God, through the prophet Daniel, who lived during the reign of the Babylonian Empire, and in the beginning of the reign of the Medo-Persian Empire. Below is a timetable (from top to bottom) of the rise and fall of these empires. The statue is from Daniel chapter 2.  It starts with Babylon and ends, at the feet, with the kingdom of iron and clay. The kingdom of iron and clay is the kingdom of the “little horn” (Daniel 7:23-25).

In Daniel 2:31-45, King Nebuchadnezzar has a dream, which only the prophet Daniel can interpret. Daniel gives the interpretation to the king. The dream is of the rise and fall of world empires until Christ’s second coming.  The above chart shows both the dream and the fulfillment of the dream. World history shows the last kingdom to be the Holy Roman Empire.Rome of the Caesars is depicted as pure iron. The Holy Roman empire is depicted as both iron and clay.

Daniel also has a dream of the rise and fall of the same kingdoms in chapter 7. In this chapter, the “little horn” is described. The “little horn” is the capital of the last empire. The capital of the last empire is Rome. Rome and the “little horn” are described as one.

The “little horn” no longer reigns over the empire as it use to, but the kingdom itself remains. The “little horn’s” kingdom is Rome, and its religion remains as well. The following articles will describe the religion and history of the “little horn”. The articles will show that the “little horn” is a religion, which ruled over the kings of Europe, and that during its reign, has fulfilled much of Bible prophecy. The article series will show that the religion of the “little horn” is Roman Catholicism, and that the king of the religion is the office of the pope.

Crackdown on Liberty Pt. 4 – United States & Rothschilds of Europe Unite

World View Weekend Radio – “The news is reporting that the Rockefellers of the United States and the Rothschilds of Europe are uniting to form a “strategic partnership.” Brannon uses this story to begin the conversation about how rich and powerful bankers, businessmen, and politicians recently gathered just outside Washington D.C. for the Bilderberger meeting. Are the globalists about to pick the man they are going to support for President in the U.S.? The choice is between globalist Romney and Neo-Marxist Obama. Does this current scenario reveal the long standing partnership and battle between the Fabian Socialists and the Communists? Are the Fabians concerned that Neo-Marxist Obama has awaken a sleeping giant? Is it time for the Neo-Marxist occupying the White House to move on and be replaced by a Communitarian/Fabian Socialist by the name of Romney? Brannon details interesting historical facts that reveal this long standing battle and the long standing battle between those who want their plan to remain secret and those like Carroll Quigley and George Bernard Shaw that wanted the plan to be openly discussed. ” ~ Brannon Howse

Authors of Confusion Pt. 12 – The Age of Reason

Quote from The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Volume 1

“But all the provisions that He has made for the gratification of our senses, they are much inferior to the provision, that wonderful provision that He has made for the gratification of our nobler powers of intelligence and reason. He has given us reason to find out truth and the real design and true end of our existence.”

Is this true?
Is the power of reason enough for sinful man to find out truth and the real design and true end of our existence?
Does Adam’s theory takes sin into consideration, as a possible hindrance to finding out man’s real design, and true end of existence?

Comparing Adam’s statement with Scripture reveals the following:

Sin has corrupted our ability to use our reason to acknowledge the true God.

Romans 1
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Sin causes us not to want to use our reason to search for, and submit to, the truth about God.

Romans 1
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
28    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

For this reason, God has caused our reason to become even more wicked.

Romans 1
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29    Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30    Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents

This judgment from God has also made our ability to reason deficient.

Romans 1
31 Without understanding

This judgment from God also causes the mind of man to delight in the very things that it identifies as wicked.

Romans 1
32    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Reason cannot rescue mankind from this plight.
God, himself, then proves to be the greatest provision to man.

John 3
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4    Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5    Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6    That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
8    The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Hebrews 8
8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

The hope for the depraved mind is the gospel of Jesus Christ, alone.

2Corinthians 5
17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

Crackdown on Liberty Pt. 3 – Domestic Terrorists

Persecution of Christians is inevitable, because Christ told his church that the world would hate them just as it hated him. The conspiracy throughout the age of Christendom has been to cause the peoples of the world to hate, and even fear Christians as though they are insurrectionists, antisocial, hateful, murderous, villains. When Christians are marginalized, and demonized, before the public, just as Roman emperor Nero demonized Christians by accusing them of burning Rome, the citizens are then more than willing to allow their government to persecute Christians. This old method of turning the world against Christians is still in action today. An example of this method can be seen in the media’s publicizing of the court case of the Norway mass killer, Anders Behring Breivik, who said that he picked victims who had the ‘leftist’ look. His killing spree has been publicized by the media throughout western society. Now his insane, murderous, heart, is being publicized as well, and everyone will see the evils of extremism; right-wing extremism in particular. Since Christians are known for being right-wing in their political views, they will be further marginalized, and demonized as  insurrectionists, antisocial, hateful, murderous, villains. For more information on the Norway mass killer, click on the link entitled, “Anders Behring Breivik“.

To add fuel to the fire of the ongoing method of demonizing Christians, the social gospel’s liberation theology of America teaches Christians that they have the right to take up arms against their government. As Benjamin Franklin stated, “Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God”. Although the legal right to bear arms is under attack, and the Fema camps are setting many Americans on edge because of the “NDAA“, Christians still want to believe in their right to take up arms against their government. This view is widely held by white American Christian republicans, who are proud, stubborn, and not willing to take up their cross of suffering for Christ’ sake. Their outspoken affirmation of their right to own firearms, and to use them to fight against their government, is what is adding fuel to the fire of marginalizing, and demonizing Christians throughout western society. Their determination to ignore Christ’ teachings on this matter will only serve to dig a deeper whole of persecution for Christians to fall into.

American Christians has always been told that they are the exception to the rule of Scripture, which affirms the persecution of everyone who desire to live godly lives (2Timothy 3:12). This is because America was birthed, not by the gospel of Jesus Christ, but by the social gospel, which teaches Americans that they can gain the world (The American Dream/life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness), and not loose their souls in the process. To read more on the corrupting effects of the American social gospel, click on the link entitled “War on Consciousness Pt. 3 – The Monumental Promotion of the ‘Social Gospel“.

The American government has already begun its demonization of people who hold to right-wing views. These views of the political right do not affirm the values of the changing moral climate of America, and will no longer be tolerated. Therefore, there is now a campaign to demonize the old morality of the political right, so that the next generation will see them as alien, hateful, extreme, insane, arrogant, and even ungodly. This campaign is being implemented through the educational system, the media, politics, and through religion. For examples of the government’ s conspiracy against right-wing adherents, click on the links entitled “GOVERNMENT SAYS CHRISTIANS ARE TERRORISTS” and “Christians Classified as Terrorists by Obama Administration“.

Crackdown on Liberty Pt. 2 – The Fight for Freedom

Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God. ~ Benjamin Franklin

This is not the God of Scripture that he’s referring to.

Genesis 3
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Revelation 12
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 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.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

The social gospel preaches “fight for your earthly freedom”.
The gospel of Jesus Christ says “overcome by the blood of the lamb, Jesus Christ, and by the word of your testimony”.

God did not promise his church freedom in Satan’s kingdom, but persecution.
Our freedom is in Christ’s return.
To support the social gospel is to partner with the serpent.
To take up arms against the government is to partner with the serpent.
Those who do not take up their cross and deny themselves will lose the savor of a good testimony, for Jesus Christ, to this sinful world.
Those who partner with the serpent will be trodden under foot.

Matthew 5
3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

1John 5
3    For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4    For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5    Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
18    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
19    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
20    And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

The New Christianity Pt. 5 – Hodge-Podge

The “New Christianity” does not adhere to one doctrine of heresy, but many. These many doctrines are brought in by way of a disregard for Scripture, and an overall disregard for truth. This disregard for truth has brought a hodge-podge of pseudo Christian insanity into the church. Therefore, anything goes, and no one questions the falsehood, because few have a desires to know the God of Scripture. Out of the few who do want to know the truth, only a small percentage has the backbone to speak out against it, and separate themselves from the insanity. In this way, the masses who think that they are Christians are actually following a false gospel, and a false Christ, by way of false teachers and false churches that will lead them to destruction and eternal punishment.

Christian American’s reading of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Ancient Corinth, is the same as holding a mirror before the American church, and to see its own shameful condition.

2Corinthians 11
1    Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.
2    For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.


3    But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty“, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.


4    For if he that cometh “preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached,

or “if ye receive another” spirit, which ye have not received,

or “another gospel“, which ye have not accepted,

ye might well bear with him“.

What does Scripture require God’s people to do in light of this matter?

Scripture always commands God’s people to separate:

Romans 16
17    Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18    For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

2 Timothy 3
1    This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2    For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3    Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4    Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5    Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Titus 3
9    But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
10    A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
11    Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

2John 1
8    Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9    Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10    If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11    For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Matthew 7
13    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22    Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

War on Consciousness Pt. 4 – CHARMED

There is a pervasive element within western society that isn’t given the attention that it deserves. This element needs to be addressed, because of the damage that it does to individuals, families, neighborhoods, and society at large. This pervasive element makes strong men weak, and enslaves them. It sets traps for the simple, and then devours them. It manipulates the innocent in order to perverts them. Coming as a friend, while it is actually an enemy, it is a deceiver at heart. Although many times it appears to be benevolent, it is a ravenous wolf in disguise. It gains the trust of the unsuspecting in order to infiltrate their circles.  It sows the seed of corruption for the sake of destruction. The pervasive element that needs to be brought to our attention is the “seducing spirit”.

The seducing spirit operates from two positions. One is the position of weakness, and the second is the position of strength. The seducing spirit must start off from the position of weakness in order to gain the position of power. The goal of the seducing spirit is control. Whenever the seducing spirit operates from the position of weakness it usually uses deception, subtly, and appeals to the one’s desires and convictions.  Manipulation, and is the best way to operate when one is weaker than one’s opponent, because instead of fighting a battle which one cannot hope to win, it instead, tricks the opponent into believing that both parties are actually on the same side. The result of this deception would be for the opponent to believe the solicitation, which is to either take from the deceiver, what is being offered, or to join forces with the deceiver, being convinced that both parties are on the same side, and therefore, should work toward a common goal. However, the goal of the seducing spirit is never to help, but only to gain control over the opponent.

The control that the seducing spirit desires is that of making the opponent dependent upon the spirit so that the opponent cannot break free from its hold. Whenever this happens, the opponent becomes a slave to the spirit, who is now operating from a position of strength. The spirit has gone from that of a solicitor, to a tyrant. For example: this transition from solicitor, to tyrant can be seen in the Genesis chapter 3 account, which is the fall of man. The serpent comes to Eve, and convinces her that disobeying God, and listening to the serpent instead, is in her best interest. Satan is the serpent, and his goal is to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). Yet, he isn’t able to do anything to Adam and Eve, because they belong to God. However, Satan knew that if Adam and Eve did not keep God’s law, which was to not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they would have to die. Therefore, Satan had to work from the position of weakness, as a solicitor, in order to convince Eve to make a decision that would destroy her. The result was for Adam and Eve to become subject to the control of sin, as well as their descents (Romans 5:12). This fall into sin, which was rebellion against God, allowed Satan to become the god of mankind, because whomever one submits to then becomes that one’s slave (Romans 6:16).

Another aspect of the seducing spirit’s solicitation is for the purpose of gaining the love and adoration of the opponent. In this way, the stronger opponent voluntarily submits to the weaker spirit as though it is worthy of honor and adoration. This approach can be extremely difficult to resist when one is deceived by the solicitor, because of the influence the spirit has over the opponent’s conscience, and because it is hard for the opponent to refuse the demands of the one it is in love with. An example of this can be seen in the account of Samson, who had two lovers that committed emotional blackmail against him by crying until he give them vital information that could cause him trouble. Samson’s enemies were too weak to over power or out smart him, so they gained the advantage over him by causing his lovers to play the role of the seducing spirit. This brought Samson to complete ruin and oppression by his enemies, who trapped him, blinded him, enslaved him, and made a mockery of him before their nation, and before their pagan gods.

Whenever a seducing spirit gains the position of tyrant over a person, it plays out in various ways. For Samson, he was physically, and emotionally, enslaved. First he was enslaved by the women he love, and later he was enslaved by the Philistines, which he hated. Because of the effects of the seducing spirit, people should not be naive, but careful in regards to who and what they fall in love with.

The seducing spirit is the enemy, and it comes to steal, kill, and destroy. It comes in many forms, but it is always the enemy. This is always true, whether it is a teacher, pastor, family member, politician, musician, actor, friend, media personality…etc.

The hardest person to turn away from is the one that we’re in love with.

The hardest idol to identify and turn away from is the one that we love and worship.

The hardest false teacher to turn away from is the won that we love and learn from.

The hardest artist to turn away from is the one whose art we love.

The hardest false doctrine to identify and call a lie, is the one that we love.

The hardest worldly philosophy to turn away from is the one that we love.

We are not exempt from seduction, because no one of us is all-knowing and sinless. That is why we put our trust, not in our own moral fiber, but Christ’ righteousness, which is perfect, and never fails. This perfect righteousness of Jesus is what made him a suitable sacrifice for our sins. Not only that, but if we sin, he is also our mediator between us and the Father. Therefore, if we confess our sins, instead of defending ourselves before God and others, he is faithful and just to forgive us of all our sins, and will cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Furthermore, we can be sure that we belong to God if we abide in the teachings of Christ through studying, meditating upon, and obeying them. In this way, we will both know the truth, who is Jesus Christ – the Son of God, and will be set free by him. That includes being set free from the sins of the seducing spirit, and its control over our soul.

The seducing spirit is indeed a trap, but thanks be to God, that through Jesus Christ, we can be brought back from the deceiver. In fact, this is the reason that Jesus came into the world; to destroy the works of the ultimate seducer & tyrant, who is that old serpent, the devil, and Satan, who deceives the who world. Satan has brought the whole world into the darkness of deception and sin, but the light has come into the world, and whoever abides in him will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. Therefore, we all must repent of our sins, turn away from the seducer, who is Satan, and believe Christ’ good news of salvation. If we do not turn from our sins, and put our trust in Christ, we will die in our sins. Yet, everyone who believes in the Son of God has the right to become the children of God, and are set free from sin and the seducing spirits of this world.

John 8
12    Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
23    And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24    I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

John 1
11    He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12    But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13    Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

1John
5    This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6    If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
8    If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10    If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

1John 2
1    My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2    And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3    And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4    He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5    But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6    He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

1John 3
3    And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
4    Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
5    And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
6    Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
7    Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
8    He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
9    Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
10    In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

1John 5
1    Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
2    By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
3    For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
4    For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
5    Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
18    We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
19    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
20    And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
21    Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Authors of Confusion Pt. 10 – T.D. Jakes Confuses the Doctrine of “Orignial Sin”

Pastor, televangelist, and motivational speaker, T.D Jakes, has released his new book entitled, Let it Go, which is causing some controversy, because of its confusing of the doctrine of original sin. The confusion is caused by Jakes’ explanation for the sin of unforgiveness, which is not based upon the teachings of Scripture, but instead, the philosophy of psychology. Psychology has always been noted by Christians for its denial of the reality of right and wrong by explaining concepts of morality as inventions of man’s subjective convictions of right and wrong, and ignoring the reality of a supreme being, who is the author of man’s universal sense of morality and ethics. In short, psychology denies the veracity of God’s universal law, which is taught in Scripture. Therefore, Jakes’ new book will serve to take the minds of his readers further away from the teachings of Scripture, and into the philosophies of the world, which is corrupt, due to its lack of understanding on the topics which they extensively teach on, such as the doctrine of sin.

Jakes’ teaching on the sin of unforgiveness is described below:

“We don’t come here unforgiving. Children are not unforgiving. You can punish them and they will hug you in a few minutes,”
“They can have an altercation with another child and want to go outside and play by lunch time.”
“[people] “come here with a certain propensity to be open, loving, accepting, and trusting. We learn to be unforgiving, doubtful, suspicious, guilt-ridden, and anxious.”
“”When people feel the urge to go against someone, then they should try to go the opposite direction of the emotion,”
“See, we are commanded to forgive [but] we are not commanded to trust. We wouldn’t be commanded to do something we can’t do.”

The biblical teachings on original sin are described within the passages below:

Romans 5
12    Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Psalm 51
5    Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Jeremiah 17
9    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10    I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
Genesis 8
21 …the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth
Romans 8
5    For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6    For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7    Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8    So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
John 8
34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Romans 7
14    For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15    For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
16    If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17    Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Jakes’ departure from sound doctrine is not a new issue at all. For the last 20 years, he has been getting rich off of women who thought they were being taught Christianity, when in fact, Jakes was merely appealing to their emotions by teaching them pop-psychology. For the last 10 to 12 years, he has been justifying his millionaire status as a preacher by teaching the heresy of the prosperity gospel. These two doctrines reveal that Jakes is not at all a true teacher of the gospel, but a false teacher (Galatians 1:6-9). This fact is further made evident by Jakes’ life-long adherence to a false teaching on the trinity,  because a true teacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ should know exactly who Jesus is by reading the Bible. 

Christians should not be led by these media personalities, because of their false teachings on the gospel. Instead, Scripture teaches that people like T.D. Jakes should be identified for the self-severing deceivers that they are, and should be avoided.

Romans 16
17    Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
18    For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Authors of Confusion Pt. 9 – Kirk Cameron & His Monumental Work of Confusion

The acting career and preaching ministry of Kirk Cameron has been well received by Christians over the years. With movies such as “Left Behind”, and his television ministry, “Way of the Master”, Kirk has won the hearts of Christians throughout the country. His work has been a success in inspiring, and building up believers in their faith. However, Kirk’s latest film, “Monumental”, is taking a different, and confusing turn that is upsetting quite a few Christians. Yet, this change in Kirk agenda may reveal his own beliefs that have not been discussed over the last 13 years.

To better understand this change in theology and agenda that Kirk is currently displaying in the media, let’s first take a look at his theology, and how it has played out over the years. The photos below are links that further explains the comments written under them.

Here Kirk has affirmed the true gospel of faith in Christ, repentance, self-denial, and godliness.

Kirk has exposed the false gospel of Mormonism.

Through his leading role in the “Left Behind” films, Kirk has even affirmed the biblical belief that the world will be brought under God’s judgment, and that only Christ’s return to earth will bring about a world ruled by righteous judgment.

However, it seems that there has recently been a change in Kirk’s doctrine, that has also changed his agenda.
The change is in his refusal to live according to the belief that the world is under God’s judgment for its sins, by promoting the idea that America can be saved from its moral decay. Therefore, he is trying to convince Christians that they can reclaim America for God, which is part of the belief system of the American social gospel.
Kirk’s reason for this decision is so that his daughters will have a better future in America when they are adults. However, this idea contradicts what Jesus said about the fate of the world until he returns (Matthew 24).
Kirk is now willing to partner with false believers such as Glenn Beck, who is a Mormon, and David Barton, who is a historical revisionist that tries to deceive people into thinking that America’s founding fathers were devout Christians.

Kirk is even willing to promote the false claims of David Barton, who has already been exposed as a liar, and a historical revisionist.

The result of Kirk’s recent changes in theology and agenda will be confusion for those who believe everything that he teaches. For example: Kirk has taught the true gospel of faith in Christ, repentance, self-denial, and godliness. Now he’s teaching the social gospel of national salvation through political and cultural reform that falls in line with the American dream; in particular, liberty, which leads to liberation theology that teaches that Christians are allowed to take up arms against their government.

Another example of the confusion that Kirk is causing is the belief that Christians must only affirm the Christ of the Bible, and the gospel message as is taught in the Bible. Kirk’s partnership with Glenn Beck, who is a Mormon goes against these two fundamental doctrines, since Beck does not believe in the same Jesus that is described in the Bible, instead he believes that Jesus is Satan’s brother. That is a false god, and the equivalent of an idol. Therefore, Beck is not a believer, but an idolater. Furthermore, Beck does not believe in the gospel of salvation as is described in the Bible. Instead, he believes in his ability to work for his salvation, and that faith alone cannot save him (Ephesians 2:8-9). The Bible forbids this kind of partnership.

1Corinthians 5
11    But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an **idolater**, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12    For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13    But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

2Corinthians 6
14    Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15    And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16    And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17    Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18    And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

To be led by Kirk is to be led into confusion,  because there is now a gross inconsistency in his teaching and example. Also, his partnership with deceivers, such as David Barton, teaches God’s people that nothing is seriously wrong with working with teachers who bear bad fruit. However, this belief will come at the cost of leading people into not knowing who should be rejected because of their bad fruit,  because if Kirk accepts certain false teachers, then why should any false teacher be rejected?

Glenn Beck – The Mormon
2John 1
8    Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
9    Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10    If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11    For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

David Barton – The Church’s Deceiver
Matthew 7
13    Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22    Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23    And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The conclusion of the matter is this: Kirk has done plenty of good in the pass, and should be recognized for it, but now that he is partnering with the same people who Scripture has told the church to stay away from, Christians must now stay away from Kirk, who is now engaged in a monumental work of confusion.

Ecclesiastes 12
13    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14    For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
1John 2
3    And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4    He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5    But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

War on Consciousness Pt. 3 – The Monumental Promotion of the “Social Gospel”

Part of the “war on consciousness” is the promotion of the social gospel by the media. This false gospel gives people a false hope, which claims that they can make a better neighborhood, city, country, or world. It teaches Christians that Jesus came to commission his church to reclaim the culture. It even teaches that America is a Christian nation, that was founded by Christians, when it was actually founded by Freemasons, who claimed to be Christians.

The goal of the media’s promotion of the social gospel is to cause Christians to believe that God wants them to claim their nation for God through political, social, economic, and cultural reform. In fact, this was the reason for the sculpture of the memorial to the founding fathers; to remind Americans of their “God given duty” to uphold the Christian principals which the nation was founded upon. However, did these “Christian principals” produce liberty and justice in the founding and expansion of America?

America was both founded and expanded through theft and murder. The theft was the land that belonged to the many native American tribes, and the murder was that of these same native Americans. This was not Christian love, nor was it the godly justice of a Christian nation. On the contrary, it was invasion and tyranny, followed by the mass enslavement of Africans, who were taken from their home land against their will, and stripped of their nationality, culture, and language; all for the sake of serving in their tyrannical masters to the day of their death. Therefore, to label America’s origins as Christian, is to put a false label on the country.

The social gospel has both founded and inspired our nation’s actions throughout its short history. It was through the ideals of the social gospel that the colonists agreed to revolt against Britain, and found their own nation. It was through the ideals of the social gospel that the South held onto the lost cause of the confederate army and terrorized freed blacks. It was through the social gospel that the American army, and the pioneers of the West, slaughtered the Native American tribes; calling it “progress” for the nation, and “manifest destiny”. It was through the social gospel that the industrialists justified their stranglehold on the nation’s economy, while their employees were paid a barely livable wage. It was through the ideals of the social gospel that the progressive era brought about social reform in the country. It was through the ideals of the social gospel that the civil rights movement united the country against racial injustice. It was through the ideals of the social gospel that Christian liberals have promoted a user-friendly, humanitarian, hippie-Jesus for the purpose of reclaiming and reforming culture, and for selling Christianity as if it were more of a product to purchase, and an ideal to buy into, than it is the good news from Heaven to reconcile sinners to God, and to save them from the wrath of God.

The social gospel is a false Gospel that teaches the false hope of making a better world. This better world is one of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The social gospel teaches that mankind can have a reign of peace and freedom from tyranny before Christ returns to set up his kingdom of Heaven. It will even teach that this present reign of wickedness is, in fact, the reign of Christ on earth, and it is for Christians to fully manifest this truth through social, political, economic, and cultural reform. In short, the social gospel promotes an earth-based & works-based salvation.

The “God in Government Movement”, for example, is a campaign for cultural and political reform for the sake of “saving the country”. Although the rhetoric of this movement sounds convincing to many, there is no Scriptural basis for this cause, and their hope for political and cultural reformation for the glory of God, contains doctrine that goes directly against the Bible’s teachings on humanity and sin (Romans 8:4-8 & John 8:34). God does not call a nation to be his holy people, instead, he calls the peoples of this world to come out from the world, and into his church, and it is his church that is the holy nation and royal priesthood (1Peter 2:9-11). Yet, the media is telling Christians that it is the government and the culture that Christians are called, by God, to sanctify. 

For example: the “Monumental” documentary strengthens this false hope for political and cultural  reform by claiming that the monument to the founding fathers is a Christian sculpture that was made to remind the nation of it’s Christian roots. The film does this by merging the ideals of the Puritans with the rebellion of the founding fathers, which is misleading, since the Puritans didn’t endorse rebellion against Britain. The imagery of the sculpture is also a merging of Puritan Christian beliefs with the ideals of Freemasonry. This came be seen by the goddess figure, who is supposed to represent faith, since her hand is pointing to the sky, while the other is holding a Bible. This figure is not a representation of true biblical faith, but a goddess of Freemasonry, since it has the five pointed star of Venus-Luciferus, which is an occult symbol for Satan. The statue also has a god-like figure that symbolizes victory over tyrants, and implies that this victory over tyrants brings peace, but according to Scripture, Christians do not have the right to take up arms against their government (Romans 13:1-3). In fact, Scripture teaches that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and that Satan was the original rebel (1Samuel 15:23 & Isaiah 14:12-19).

Another example of this deception in the media would be the “The Abortion Matrix” documentary, which tells people that there is hope for restoring the cultural decay of the nation; starting with the effort of abolishing abortion. The documentary makes a convincing case through its historical account of paganism, and God’s judgment on the nations of the world that practiced it. However, its social gospel of cultural and political reform simply isn’t realistic since the Christians are vastly out numbered by the world, which is under the control of the spirit of antichrist. 

The social gospel is also promoted by the media through the “Truth Movement”, which is a movement that both studies and exposes the conspiracies within the governments of western civilization. The Christian side of the movement tends to affirm the social gospel agenda by telling Christians that it is their responsibility to resist the changes in their governments, as if they were able to. This message is actually contradictory to their claims that these government conspiracies are the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, since Bible prophecy cannot be altered by the will of man; the end will come regardless of human interference. This false hope can be clearly heard in the “Fuel Project; Know Your Enemy“.

Christian liberals, such as Tim Keller and Andy Crouch, also promote the social gospel within their lectures, blogs, and books. They clearly teach that the work of the gospel is making a better world, and go as far as to take Scripture out of context for the sake of promoting their false hope of cultural reform. Their teaching has cause those who did not understand the Christian faith to have a wrong understanding of Jesus and the gospel. These liberal teachers are not teaching the importance of turning from sin, escaping the corruption of this sinful world, believing the gospel and striving to enter the narrow gate that leads to eternal life. Instead, they teach of a hippie-Jesus, which is a false Christ, and the good news of making a better world.

The name of this liberal movement is “Incarnational Ministry”. It confuses the doctrine of Christ’ atonement, and his teachings on why he came into the world. Instead of teaching that Christ came to earth to save sinners from their sins and from the wrath of God (John 3:16 & John 6:26-29), they neglect this doctrine by teaching that Christ wants Christians to follow his example of doing good for others, such as feeding the poor, and healing the sick. However, the example that Jesus taught very clearly to his disciples was that of proclaiming the gospel, making disciples, and taking up their cross of holy living and persecution to the death (Matthew 16:24-27 & Matthew 28:19-20).

The “war on consciousness’s” monumental promotion of the social gospel has made the media to be as poison to Christians by its presentation of false hopes. The result of this war will be that of a church that does not understand the gospel, and is led by the nose by the media personality of their choosing, who appeal to Christians’ earthly desires. God’s people are to flee from this confusion and not follow the “herd” to disaster. To listen to the media personalities will only lead to heresy, but abiding in Christ will equip God’s people to stand against falsehood, discern truth from error, and to live holy lives.

Psalm 119
9    Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
Hebrews 5
12    For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13    For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14    But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
