FALSE PROPHETS ARE ARISING AND WILL LEAD MILLIONS INTO THE ARMS OF THE ANTICHRIST

In Matthew 24:11, Jesus tells us that in the last days many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. As in the Old Testament, especially in Jeremiah, there are many warnings about false prophets who say peace is coming when it isn’t. In 1st Thessalonians we are told that the day of the Lord will come when people are saying, “Peace and safety.” Then destruction will come on them suddenly (1 Thess 5:1-3). When the Antichrist first comes, there will be a short period of peace.

We certainly don’t have to look far for false prophets. They want people to drop denominational barriers, unite and come together to bring the Holy Spirit and revival. There is no mention of sharing the gospel message and making disciples of people. Many conferences, meetings, interfaith prayer gatherings and prayer walks have been held around the world where people believe they are helping to bring about a great end-times revival. Their aim is to extend “the Kingdom of Jesus.”

Along with many countries, NZ has been influenced by prophets of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and Dominionism. These two kinds of prophets have only minor differences. Dominion theologists believe that our mandate is to do whatever is necessary, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to retake dominion of God’s creation which Adam forfeited to Satan in the Garden of Eden. They want to see God’s physical kingdom and His will done here on earth before the return of Jesus. Christians are expected to go out and take dominion again. They do not believe in a coming Rapture or a time of great tribulation.

One of the teachings of NAR is the 7 Mountains Mandate. These spheres or mountains that must be transformed are religion, family, education, government, media, arts and entertainment, and business. According to them, Christians are expected to capture these mountains for Christ. They believe that God is raising up apostles to govern these mountains. When they take over, the wealth of the world will come to them so they can advance God’s kingdom.

You will probably be familiar with some of their names: e.g. C. Peter Wagner, Cindy Jacobs (Generals International who says we need a great spiritual reset), Bill Bright, Rick Joyner, Bill Johnson (Bethel), Mike Bickle (International House of Prayer), John and Paula Sandford (Elijah House).

In a Moriel Quarterly, Elon Moreh has written about how much the Israel Body has appropriated these teachings with only minor differences from mainstream NAR teachings. He mentions how the Israeli NAR has been moving forward not only towards union with Rome, but also in its schemes to form a second Jerusalem Council. The ultimate aim is to unite all denominations (including Catholics and Eastern Orthodox) with Messianic Judaism to bring about the visible unity of all Christendom under the authority of a Second Jerusalem Council as in Acts 15. This is something their false apostles perceive as being a precondition to usher in their global revival and final end-time harvest before the Lord returns. Many so-called Christian organisations are now in Jerusalem: TBN, God TV, DayStar TV, Chuck Pierce’s Glory of Zion.

One quote Elon gives comes from Johnny Enlow and is rather disturbing. Those in leading positions don’t have to be Christians. “If Mormons will do that better than Christians, let them rule… because it isn’t a Christian kingdom, only the kingdom of God. It isn’t about Christian causes; it’s about getting things to function on earth as they do in heaven.” However, the only global “church” the Bible teaches is the one world religion of the Antichrist. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast – all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb.” (Rev 13:8)

The NAR and Dominionists are expecting a great end-times revival which will establish a global church under their leadership and a New World Order. Their aims fall in line with the World Economic Forum’s Great Reset which is the brainchild of Klaus Schwab. Its aim is to improve the state of the world and religion is expected to have a role to play in this.

Nowhere in Scripture is the church called to take over the systems of the world. Jesus Christ is coming back to do that. We are told, however, that this is what the Antichrist will do. The agenda of the NAR and the Dominionists will lead millions straight into the arms of the Antichrist and hell.

Jesus tells us four times in Matthew not to be deceived, and also says that there will be many false prophets. The false prophets are with us now and gaining influence. Don’t be deceived, understand what is coming, and be prepared.

JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH AND LOT – Luke 17:26-29

All Christians need to be very aware of how rapidly the world is coming against them and be prepared. Sermons may soon be monitored, the teaching of certain parts of the Bible banned and sharing the gospel message a criminal offence.

NZ PM Jacinda Ardern is under even more pressure to introduce the ‘conversion therapy’ ban with urgency. ‘Survivors’ have been sharing their stories. One person said the experience had been very damaging: “Homophobic and transphobic Christian doctrine positioned me in a place of total disempowerment and self-hatred, from the outset of needing to be fixed.” Another woman was subjected to drugs and given 200 ECT shocks over the course of 12 years because of her sexual orientation. The group said that if the bill included religious exemptions, it would not provide protection for the rainbow community.

In the US, lawmakers are deciding on the Equality Act which refers to the Bible as ‘bigoted reading material’ and would destroy Christian liberty. It will erase God-given gender distinctions and pave the way for paedophilia. It will also put hiring practices of faith-based organisations in jeopardy. The House has now passed the Equality Act but it has yet to pass the Senate.

As mentioned in the February Alert!, in Victoria, Australia, laws have already been introduced with penalties of prison time and large fines if there is a perception that a ‘conversion’ practice has caused injuries to an  LGBT person.

As these measures are introduced in the West, it will usher in a time of Christian persecution that has never been seen before in our nations.

In the UK an LGBT activist has called for Christians to be banned from praying for someone with unwanted same-sex attraction.

In the US, one in six adults born between 1997 and 2012 (Gen Z) identify as LGBT.

In Australia, the Canberra University’s Gender Institute has produced a handbook that encourages the use of “parent-inclusive language” such as “chestfeeding” instead of “breastfeeding” and “human milk” rather than “mother’s milk.” The terms “mother” and “father” should be replaced with “gestational” and “nongestational” parent.

BE PREPARED FOR MULTIPLE DISASTERS!

The history of climate forecast headlines is interesting. In the 1960s and 70s there were dire predictions of an Ice Age coming fast even by the 21st century. Then came predictions that rising seas would ‘obliterate nations’ by 2000. In 2000 it was declared that snowfalls are a thing of the past and our children will not know what snow is like. In 2008 Al Gore warned of an ice-free arctic by 2013. In 2009 Prince Charles joined in and said we had just 96 months to save the world. In 2014, John Kerry who is now the US special presidential envoy for climate under the Biden administration said that we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos. He now says we have ‘nine years left’ to avert the climate crisis. This is what happens when humans think they are the highest authority and do not understand that God is in charge of the climate and natural disasters.

There are now heatwaves or freezing weather in various countries on top of Covid. Earthquakes and volcanoes have increased markedly. NZ has experienced a huge 8.1 magnitude quake off its coast. In the US, the massive freeze-up in Texas is seen by some as a foreshadowing of the total collapse of the US. Millions of Americans were left without power for seven days and without safe drinking water. ‘Clean’ wind power appears to be the chief culprit of the Texas Grid collapse.

Christians need to be prepared for multiple disasters as well as persecution.

THOUGHTS ON THE ROLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

It keeps happening. Much has been made of the fall from grace of the late Ravi Zacharias and Hillsong’s Carl Lentz. There have been many other Christians of note caught in sexual immorality too. “Live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.” (Gal 5) Sexual immorality is a desire of the sinful nature. Self-control and love are fruits of the Spirit. Weren’t these leaders supposed to be filled with the Spirit and walking in step with the Spirit?

There are a number of things that could have happened. Some people are filled with the power of the Holy Spirit at the time they accept Jesus as their Lord and saviour. For others there is an interval. Jesus breathed on the disciples (John 20:22) then in Acts 1 they are told not to leave Jerusalem until they were baptised with the Holy Spirit and power came on them (Pentecost).

Jesus also told His disciples to “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find…“ The Father in heaven will give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him (Luke 11:9-13). Warren Wiersbe, in his book “50 People Every Christian Should Know,” describes how a number of good Christian leaders realised they were missing something and sought the Holy Spirit’s empowering and became even more successful. One of these was F.B. Meyer.

Many people, for various reasons, end up in churches without ever making a full commitment. Some are caught up in the emotion of altar calls. They are often asked to repeat a prayer and are then told that they are now a Christian. There are many false converts in churches and unfortunately some of these people end up in positions of power without living by the Spirit.

In Hebrews 6:4-6 there is a severe warning. It is possible to be Spirit-filled and then fall away. There is no second chance for redemption. See also 2 Peter 2:20-22.

One of the most disturbing parables in the Bible is the parable of the 10 virgins in Matthew 25. The 5 foolish ones had lamps but no oil, but they still expected to go out and meet the bridegroom. But they first had to try and get some oil. They arrived for the wedding banquet too late and were locked out. The bridegroom said to them, “I don’t know you.” How shocking to be expecting to go to heaven and find oneself shut out when you were expecting to go there!

Oil represents the Holy Spirit, and Christians need the Holy Spirit to walk in the Spirit. They simply can’t do that on their own strength. They must be filled with the Holy Spirit at all times and keeping watch, so they will be ready to meet the bridegroom. We can know the signs, but not the day or the hour.

“Small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
