Revelation 16:13-16:  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

Revelation 17:12-14:  And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Revelation 13:3:  …and all the world wondered after the beast.

What is Preterism?

From L’Avenir:

II. THE ANTI-PROTESTANT PRATERITE (PRETERIST-ed.)THEORY.

This was originated by a Spanish Jesuit also, Alcasar of Seville, who, A.D. 1615, published a work having in view the same end as Ribera, viz., to set aside the Protestant application of the Apocalyptic prophecies and symbols. Ribera endeavored to throw everything forward into the future. Alcasar endeavoured to throw every thing backward into the past. He stops short in the course of history, and makes all the Apocalyptic symbols to have been fulfilled within the first five six centuries. The Germanic Neronic Form; so called because it dates the Apocalypse (an essential point for interpreters) about the end of Nero’s reign, A.D. 67 and because it is thus regarded by the critical, rationalistic school of German expositors, and by Professor Stuart in America. According to this view, the Apocalypse can only refer to the overthrow of Judaism and Heathenism, and the triumph of Christianity, but not to the Papacy. The early date, viz., A.D. 67, makes room for supposing a reference to the destruction of Jerusalem, A.D. 70; and the six centuries, for the overthrow of heathenism, and the prevalence of Christianity, but not for the demolition of the Roman Catholic Church! The Papal Domitianic Form; so called because it fixes the date of the Apocalypse about the end of Domitian’s reign, A.D. 96; and in this form prevails with the Papacy. Of course, this form of the theory excludes application of the symbols of the Apocalypse to the destruction of Jerusalem, which occurred twenty-five years previous to this date, inasmuch as the events recorded were to come into being after the time John wrote.-(Rev. 4:1). The fall of Judaism and the doom of the Roman Catholic Church are not referred to at all, but only the overthrow of Heathenism and the triumph of Christianity. Such is the loose and wholesale mode of generalising in these two forms of Praeterism (the latter of which has yet some truth), that any upstart has a precedent before him for applying the Apocalyptic symbols to the destruction of any enemy he please.

“Vatican calls for global authority on economy, raps “idolatry of the market””

800px-Pieter_Bruegel_the_Elder_-_The_Tower_of_Babel_(Vienna)_-_Google_Art_Project_-_edited

The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a “global public authority” and a “central world bank” to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises. The document from the Vatican’s Justice and Peace department should please the “Occupy Wall Street” demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

Update October 25, 2011:  Roman Catholics are claiming that the Vatican’s statements were misunderstood and that the liberals and Jesuits within the church contributed to this misunderstanding.  It seems the call for a global economy did not come from the Pope himself but from a vatican congregation.  Read more here: http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/pope-benedict-calls-for-central-world-bank-only-he-didnt-heres-why

A Seventh Day Adventist’s View of the Left Behind Series

Modern Christianity has largely forgotten the importance of the Protestant Reformation, which took place during the 1500s. “The sixteenth century presents the spectacle of a stormy sunrise after a dismal night. Europe awoke from long sleep of superstition. The dead arose. The witnesses to truth who had been silenced and slain stood up once more and renewed their testimony. The martyred confessors reappeared in the Reformers. There was a cleansing of the spiritual sanctuary. Civil and religious liberty were inaugurated. The discovery of printing and revival of learning accelerated the movement. There was progress everywhere. Columbus struck across the ocean and opened a new hemisphere to view. Rome was shaken on her seven hills, and lost one-half of her dominions. Protestant nations were created. The modern world was called into existence.”

Charles Spurgeon on the Papacy as Antichrist

Spurgeon

C.H. Spurgeon said: ‘It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is, no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not Popery in the Church of Rome, there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. If there were to be issued a hue and cry for Antichrist, we should certainly take up this Church on suspicion, and it would certainly not be let loose again, for it so exactly answers the description.’

Cardinals Manning and Newman on the Roman Catholic Church

Cardinal Manning said: ‘The Catholic Church is either the masterpiece of Satan or the Kingdom of the Son of God.’

Cardinal Newman said of Rome: ‘If not divinely appointed, it is doctrinally the essence of Antichrist.’

The Last Pilgrims

The Last Pilgrims is a novel by Michael Bunker, a Christian agrarian and Biblical separatist.  It is set 20 years after the collapse of America and explores the future from a Protestant Historicist perspective.  The author provides a sample novella of the first 1/3 novel for free at http://www.lastpilgrims.com/.

I read the sample novella and found it interesting.  I wouldn’t classify it as some of the best fiction I’ve ever read; however, I did find the author’s perspective instructive and challenging.  For instance, one of the main characters is a pacifist.  He supports pacifism in all situations, and he puts those beliefs into practice with full knowledge of the potential cost of his actions.  His perspective is making me re-examine my beliefs concerning self-defense.  While I don’t think I could ever not defend my children if someone tried to harm them, I do enjoy the process of making sure my beliefs are Biblically grounded.  I look forward to reading more of this series.

You can find a copy of the sample novella here if you are interested in reading it.  You can also purchase an updated, re-edited novella here.  The actual book launch is 11/11/2011.  It is the first book in an intended series.

Global Marxism is on the March

1155587_69316675Global Marxism is on the rise once again. If the Protestant historicist view of Revelation is correct, then we are about here in the sequence of events leading up to the Second Coming (which is not going to happen in the immediate near future) [Please note: historicists do not interpret Revelation”literally” but recognize that it is peppered with various symbolic references.  The earthquake mentioned in Revelation is therefore not understood to be a literal earthquake but a major political/social/economic upheaval…sort of like a revolution]:

Revelation 16:12-16: And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared. And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.

What comes next? Just when the globalists think they have ultimately succeeded:

Revelation 16:17-21: And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

How will Mystery Babylon eventually fall?

Revelation 17:12: And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful. And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Revelation 18:21: And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

I was taught to adore Marxism throughout my education. So far as I have been able to tell, Marxism is an ideology that starts with mass mayhem, continues with mass murder, and ends with mass misery.

Here is a link to an analysis by Glenn Beck of the Occupy [insert city name here] protests: http://www.therightscoop.com/glenn-beck-breaks-down-occupy-movement/. In this link Mr. Beck stresses that this movement should be taken seriously. The Occupy Movement is both well-organized and well-funded, and it is using tactics that have proven successful before. May God help us if this movement succeeds.

Here are some other videos of interest from this movement:
