Fuller Seminary, Calvary Chapel and the Emergent Church

This has got to be a very unpleasant topic for Christians as it hits us right between the eyes. Pointing fingers at the cults down the street or the word faith whack jobs on television is child’s play compared to looking within at our own beloved institutions and Bible teachers.

new-evangelicalism-coverI have just finished reading a 2011 book from “The Word for Today” Publishing by Paul Smith, brother of the late Pastor Chuck Smith. Paul Smith’s book presents a case that the battle for the bible was fought and lost at Fuller Seminary, paving the way for the emergent church and the current battle being fought over biblical interpretation, and the denigration of the Bible from being the inerrant Word of God.

This battle has now spilled over into a full blown church split at Calvary Chapel and is spreading like leaven throughout all evangelical churches, seminaries, and Bible colleges across America and around the world.

Paul Smith documents that Fuller Theological Seminary was the main arena for the battle of the Word of God in the 1960′s and 1970′s which would become the “emergent church” of our generation and the Great Apostasy of Christendom. spoken about in 2 Thessalonians 2. In the 2010′s this battle is being fought at among many other Churches, the Calvary Chapels.

Timothy was also warned about the “latter times” and “perilous times” that would come, Jude warned us about false teachers coming before the “Judgement of the great day”, almost every apostle, Peter, John, James, and Jesus Himself all warned about false teachers and deception as being the #1 super sign of the last days.

If the Bible truly is the inerrant Word of God, and superior to to all other merely human writings, then we should be able to rest in its truth and wisdom in the light of any challenge.

Once we are faced with the reality of ravenous and grievous wolves arising in our own churches, instead of being gripped with confusion, fear or panic, we can be comforted by the Words of Jesus to Peter in Matthew 16:18

upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

It would have been so much easier if I could have found Paul Smith’s book in the Calvary Chapel book Store instead of having to dig around the back channels of the discernment ministries websites and videos. The lack of transparency among current Calvary Chapel leadership is troubling to say the least. I do not condemn them, I wish to only encourage the good ones that remain. My perception and opinion is that most of them do not understand what is going on. This is OK. There’s an old saying…

“you don’t know what you don’t know”.

I recommend Paul Smith’s book to them as it is also a first hand account of Chuck Smith’s wishes before he passed away and an excellent history of the battles fought in the past at Fuller Theological Seminary, and the current struggle for control of Calvary Chapel.

Something is different this time

All through the year of 2016, I have been diligently trying to figure out what in the world is going on in our churches. I know something is different and was having a very difficult time putting my finger on it. I have asked several trusted pastors to explain to me the many clues and issues I was discovering. I would often be met with a wall of resistance or complete confusion on the topic of apostasy in the church.

65673493

does this remind you of anybody?

In the past year the only people I found that were aware of and willing to talk about this apparent apostasy were never the ordained clergy.

The pastors at my own Church, instead of openly discussing these issues, would only whisper of these things quietly with me, then instruct me not to spread conspiracy theory or false reports because “yeah, that would be bad”.

One well known Calvary Chapel pastor in Hawaii even went so far as to accuse me of “slandering a man of God” when I shook his tree a little too hard. One has to wonder if that particular pastor truly trusts in the Bible being the inerrant Word of God. If he did, I would think he might welcome discussions such as these much more confidently instead of threatening his sheep.

The year of 2016 has not even ended yet and my so called “conspiracy theories” and “false reports” are now being shouted from the rooftops by various news outlets according to Luke 12:3

Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

This really is just the tip of the iceberg. I have been forced to do my own research as my own pastors mostly refuse to discuss these things with me. In all reality, I actually don’t think they themselves understand what is going on. I have to thank the ministries of Emergent Watch, Understand The Times, Berean Research, Let Us Reason and Paul Smith.

For those who can’t wait to order and read the whole book, watch this video by Paul Smith available on YouTube for a little preview of where Paul Smith was coming from.

Paul Smith’s book was published back in 2011 and he would accurately describe, 5 years ahead of time, what is now happening at Calvary Chapel. Pastor Chuck Smith also saw the emergent problems coming, and warned about them early also, almost prophetically, in writing, back on August 17, 1981 and again on June 5th, 2006. (page 136-137 New Evangelicalism) or click here PastorChuck_parsontoparson[1]

Best I can tell, both times, in both letters, Chuck Smith is telling anyone who wants to “go emergent” to just leave and take off the Calvary Chapel name from their church.

I still have many unanswered questions but the clarity is beginning to focus in. According to Paul Smith, two big things concerned him and his brother Chuck. The first was repeated by Chuck many multiple times as he would quote Acts 20

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

The other larger issue concerning Paul Smith is dealt with more in the above book than the video and this is the larger Emergent church movement. Calvary Chapel has huge problems now and it is my opinion the majority of the pastors are confused themselves.

Instead of singling out any of the Calvary Chapel pastors which include many life long friends of mine, I will instead attempt to peel away a few stinky layers of the greater onion here. My prayers are with the Calvary Chapel pastors. They need to listen to the inerrant Word of God and the Holy Spirit, and not necessarily each other. True leadership always arises in the midst of trials. Their current leadership appears to be infiltrated and possibly corrupted at some level. These pastors need to decide if they truly serve Jesus and His church or a denomination which is effectively what Calvary Chapel has become.

What is the Emergent Church anyway

Emergent messages dilute the truth. They are undermining, degenerative and confusing. These are nothing less than satanic spiritual attacks that spill over into the physical realm through church splits, heresies, and the love of many growing cold (Matthew 24:12 and Revelation 3:15)

many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

It is the opinion of many, including Paul Smith and myself that the accommodation and compromise of the emergent movement have done nothing less than set the stage for the “apostasy” and the “man of sin” spoken of in 2 Thess 2 and the coming one world religion.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says all scripture is given by inspiration (theopneustos) or “God breathed”. This means that God does not communicate error. If God is capable enough to supernaturally create everything then is He not also supernaturally able to communicate without error?

Fulfilled prophecy is God’s “authentication code” and according to Peter makes our faith “more sure”. (2 Peter 1:19)

The false emergent teachers don’t seem to think so. They have abandoned the Word of God as their authority and have instead embraced social liberalism basically. Before we can rightly untangle the web of “emergent” doctrine we need to go back and take a little history lesson first to see how we got here.

Philadelphia to Laodicea direct non stop

It is a working theory in evangelical and conservative circles that biblical institutions have about a 75 year lifespan to evidence significant change but that when it comes, it happens almost overnight.

D. A. Carson in his 2005 book Becoming Conversant with the Emerging Church: Understanding a Movement and Its Implications argues that historical evidence shows a 75 year pattern where the first generation fights for orthodoxy, the second generation will assume orthodoxy, finally the third generation abandons orthodoxy.

Historically, our modern church age of “Christian fundamentalism” had been under attack since at least 1905 from Humanism and modernism, especially in the Universities and in the government and the media.

The Fight for Orthodoxy begins

In the 1940′s, evangelicals would begin to fight for orthodoxy. Evangelical Christians from Westminster and various other universities officially banded together and created “The National Association of Evangelicals” (NAE) in April 1942.

The NAE grew rapidly. In the weeks following that April day in 1942, Other groups across the United States began to band together and fight for orthodoxy, they were the ACCC American Council of Christian Churches, the Federal Council of Churches, the National Council of Churches and the darker and more sinister WCC World Council of Churches also sprang up in 1942. With the exception of the WCC, these were the men and women who would “fight for orthodoxy” and defend the authority and inerrancy of scripture.

The keynote speech announcing it is worth reading (pg 58 New Evangelicalism)

The children of these devout men of God, the next generation known as “baby boomers” would eventually birth the “Jesus movement” hippies of the 1960′s and 1970′s (yuppies of the 1980s) who would, according to this theory, “assume orthodoxy”. This includes many solid bible teaching churches that would assume they had the correct doctrine so long as they “taught the bible”. AOG, Calvary Chapel, Foursquare, Word of Life etc.

While many previously solid christian churches and universities begin to crumble before and after 1942 and even before the Jesus revolution of the 1960′s, if we look to the end of this 75 year cycle, if we use the 1942 as our baseline and apply the 75 year rule, our generation’s apostasy begins now, somewhere around 2017. If their theory is correct, it will be our generation that completely “abandons orthodoxy”, and is this not what we see evidenced today?

The Battle for the Bible

A case in point is to study what happened at Fuller Theological Seminary. Dr Charles Fuller first studied at BIOLA and then would go on to say controversial things like “apostasy needed to be purged from BIOLA”.  He would go on to start Fuller Theological Seminary in June 1947. Fuller Seminary would become the beacon of the inerrancy of the word of God in the Western USA for the next 15 years. By the 1960′s infighting and bickering would begin to take over and Fuller Seminary would fully forsake teaching the Bible as the inerrant Word of God by the late 1970s. This would be a little over 30 short years.

This is where it gets weird. There are over 40 boxes containing 700 documents stored in Wheaton Illinois Billy Graham Center concerning the issues surrounding the battles over the bible that took place at Fuller Seminary in the 1960′s and 1970s. 50 of these folders were restricted from access until January 2008, Six folders are restricted from research until after the death of Billy Graham, another three folders are restricted from research until after January 2019.

What is in the remaining folders is unknown but they most likely deal with exactly what we are talking about here. The battle for orthodoxy at the highest levels of the American churches and Christian universities.

If Paul Smith is correct, these documents describe the foundation of the coming antichrist one world religion, at least the Western Christian portion of it.

We believe the bible is inerrant

We (individual believers) may actually be the remnant church spoken of in Romans 11.

Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

If we are living in the apostasy and we are the remnant church, then Jesus says in Luke 21

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

What will happen next?

Jesus tells us we will see things beginning to come to pass. The two big ones are Israel the fig tree is their symbol in Gods eyes (not a hexagram) and false teachers (Matthew 24) and the apostasy of the church. Israel was reborn in 1948. The beginning of the apostasy is currently debatable.

In Thessalonians Paul is basically asked when is the day of the Lord and the return of Christ? His answer is found here (2 Thess 2)

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2thess2greek2thess2strong

If the doctrine of imminence is found in 2 Thessalonians 2 it is that the apostasy and the man of sin being revealed is what would be imminent. With a clear conjunction AND in between “apostasy” and “man of sin being revealed” I for one am starting to look up according to Luke 21!

The apostasy occurring is just as big of a super-sign prophetically as the nation of Israel being re-born in 1948… Rejoice!

The Battle of Calvary Chapel

Paul Smith’s vantage point allows him to accurately describe how the leaders of the new evangelicalism, emergent church and the coming apostasy dialed in their sights on his brother Chuck over the years.

When Chuck Smith would distance himself from those who sought to snare him, such as John Wimber and eventually Rick Warren, these wolves would eventually refocus on Chucks Son Chuck Smith Jr and Chuck Fromm and others. Other discernment ministries are openly exposing famous Calvary Chapel pastors such as Brian Broderson, Greg Laurie, Skip Heitzig, Jon Courson and others as embracing emergent and ecumenical doctrines.

Hawaii has not been immune as ecumenical wolves such as General William Boykin and David Barton and others have been welcomed onto the pulpits of Oahu Calvary Chapels in the past few years. I personally (and others such as Chris Lawson) have discussed these issues with these pastors and can’t say any of us have ever been satisfied with the way those discussions went.

Time and time again we have seen those who defend the Bible as the minority. Calvary Chapel has become at least one of the front lines for the coming “Great apostasy” spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2. Why most if not all of the Calvary Chapel pastors seem to fear or completely  avoid discussing these things is just a mystery still to me. This is obviously a battle but everyone is afraid to stick out their noses.

We are called to separation as Christians, and to create a barrier between us and the coming ecumenical, New Age emergent Laodicean church. We are not to accommodate or compromise with them. There are several Scriptures that support this.

I could go on. This is just a sampling of sound biblical warnings against false teachers.

So what are we? Fundamentalist or Evangelical?

The emergent “new evangelicals” are now creating confusion by continuing to refer to themselves as evangelicals while yet denying the inerrancy of scripture.

Proper evangelicals who still hold on to inerrancy have considered going back to the term “fundamentalist” but the term carries much negative connotations. It has become something of a joke or an insult to be called a “fundamentalist” these days, especially when the news easily loads the meaning with its associations to terror and disdain.

Rick Warren himself calls fundamentalism, “a very legalistic, narrow view of Christianity”. Is it no surprise when our misguided brethren in our churches also accuse us of being “legalistic” when we defend the authority of the Word of God?

The church today is full of confusion and conflict as it attempts to on one hand accommodate and compromise with the new evangelicals while we still hold some kind of a last stand against the global religion that is now upon us.

Do we compromise? Do we conform? Who do we conform to? Romans 8 gives us the answer, it says God has predestined us to:

be conformed to the image of his Son

And Romans 12 says

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

This can only happen by trusting in the changing power of the very Word of God.

The old rules are good rules. Let scripture interpret scripture, use clear passages of the bible to help clarify obscure passages, listen to the Holy Spirit, let God teach you. Be like Jesus, reference the Old Testament when possible. Consider the intention of the author when reading your bible. Are you reading poetry like Psalms? History like Kings or Chronicles? Prophecy like Ezekiel and Daniel, or the good news of the gospel like Luke and John?

Be a “Berean” like the Jews in Acts 17:11. They asked questions are were commended to be “more noble” by Paul.

Another good rule of thumb is never argue with a liberal about liberal issues. Choose your battles wisely. Try to engage them on what is the truth or real evidence. They will always win their liberal arguments. You just can’t win arguing against “helping people”. We stand on the truth, not traditional liberalism or conservatism.

We don’t deny the need for liberal reforms or programs, but these programs still leave us with unredeemed sinners. The emergent churches thrive in this realm. “unity”, “culture” and “community” shape their gospel, the truth gets sidelined.

Hegelian Dialectic

The new evangelical churches busy with “deconstructing” and “redefining” biblical terms like gospel and armageddon, have effectively become the thesis for the antithesis or the problem for the solution of the coming global one world religion.

Hegelian concepts come from German philosopher Georg Hegel. Hegel teaches that in order to synthesize something new, (in this case a global religion) a thesis must be used to confront an antithesis. They speak of deconstructing the New Testament and redefining it in order to “experience Jesus more profoundly”. This is a false teaching and against clear scripture such as Mark 10:45

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

The gospels are in perfect harmony with each other and the entire Old and New Testaments. They do not teach a thesis and antithesis creating a global religion. Be careful church. Be very careful!

Peter Drucker

Peter Ferdinand Drucker was an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author, whose writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern business corporation.he was one of the top authorities on the nature of man and society. He believed there were no natural laws and the universe was subject to continuous change.

Later in his life, Peter Drucker would announce that absolutism and rationalism were failures and that the corporations had failed in the endeavor to provide healthy community to society as a whole. Prior to this, Peter Drucker had no interest in the church but it would soon occur to Drucker that his quest to solve all mankind’s issues could be realized through the church. Peter Drucker would become particularly attracted to the seeker friendly megachurches.

Rick Warren and Peter Drucker

warren_and_drucker

Rick Warren and his mentor Peter Drucker

Rick Warren and Peter Drucker would cross paths in a seemingly marriage made in postmodern emergent heaven. More apostates were coming out of Fuller Theological Seminary than ever before and Rick Warren finally had a mentor that he could move the “purpose driven church” model forward, or as Paul Smith writes, put it on a slippery slope downward!

Peter Drucker’s quest for the perfect community caused him and Rick Warren to bond together from the beginning of their friendship. Rick Warren has publicly boasted that Peter Drucker was his mentor and Drucker would shape the “purpose driven church” model more than anything else.

This slippery slope became a machine to package and merchandise church growth and the coming global religion. Video here of Peter Drucker saying he is NOT BORN AGAIN!

Bob Buford, another famous Christian entrepreneur and philanthropist also claims Drucker to be his role model as well created the Drucker Foundation and wrote a book “Drucker and Me”.

These men are the false apostles of the emergent doctrines. At least one of them clearly denies knowing Christ!

Simon the sorcerer and Balaam the prophet

The only answer our churches should have had for men like Peter Drucker, Rick Warren and the rest of the apostles of the new world order can be found in Romans 8

and when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money, Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost. But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

the Sons of Calvary Chapel

Drucker and Buford would mentor not only Rick Warren but also Chuck Smith Jr, and Chuck Fromm, both sons of Chuck Smith and Calvary Chapel.

The emergent movement has been particularly drawn to Calvary Chapel over the decades for many reasons. Again, this is according to Paul Smith, he claims agents of the emergent church have been penetrating into and seeking to identify their movement with Calvary Chapel for a long time now.

While Calvary Chapel may have resisted the Drucker inspired Purpose driven model well enough under the leadership of Pastor Chuck Smith, in Chucks older age, the other sons of Calvary Chapel, like Greg Laurie, often crashed Chuck Smith’s events with surprise appearances by Rick Warren. According to Paul Smith, Rick Warren was never invited by Chuck and very much a “party crasher” in all of these photos below.

greg-laurie-chuck-smith-and-rick-warren-harvest-cr

Why does Chuck look mad? And why is Greg smiling like that?

ick2

“Pastors Perspective” and another ambush by Rick Warren, at least Chuck is smiling this time.

rick-warren

Everyone says Rick Warren invited himself to Chucks funeral…

cs-memorial-photo-op

…but then they all pose for a picture with the heretic Rick Warren after.

This doesn’t look good guys. Why doesn’t someone honor Chuck at his funeral and ask Rick Warren to leave? Don’t want to make a scene?

While Chuck Smith held true to the Word of God the many Calvary Chapel pastors who are embracing emergent practices such as Chuck Smith Jr, Chuck Fromm, Brian Broderson and others. Time will tell which ones remain true to the Word of God. One of you please take a strong public stand. Be like Dr. Charles Fuller! Call out the apostasy!

I sometimes feel like a sheep without a shepherd anymore. Out of that whole bunch I always loved Mike Macintosh the most. I wish he would call out the heretic instead but I know Mike has class and doesn’t want to make a scene at Chucks funeral probably.

Jesus and our culture

Jesus anticipated all cultures. He was not shortsighted. None of this is a surprise to Him. Jesus knew his plan of redemption would be challenged by these men. 1 John 2:26-27 says

These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

This is not complicated. Humanism seduces, the Holy Spirit teaches His disciples. We abide in Christ and Him alone!

Global peace plan

As we can see now, the emergent churches are a tangled web of deception. Fuller Theological Seminary, Peter Drucker, Bob Buford, Rick Warren, all the evangelical churches in America. They all want to go global.

Billy Graham has endorsed Rick Warrens Global PEACE plan and “40 days of purpose” Many discernment ministries are pointing out that the five points in Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. Plan line up perfectly with The UN Millennium Development Goals

This could very well be the foundation for an inter faith positive thinking Global religion. It is coming through Rick Warren and his purpose driven drivel.

What would Jesus do?

In the great commission, when did we ever see Jesus teach us to embrace humanistic unbelievers and teach them to have a purpose driven life? Was Jesus simply unable to know that by 2017 the world would be “post modern” and in need of some rock and roll and tatted young pastors dancing to a laser light show and spinning pyramids and smoke machines? Is this what we need to reach people these days?

Dr Charles Fuller courtesy of https://www.biblebelievers.com

Whatever happened to the discernment and leadership of real shepherds with a heart like Jesus? Oh what I would give to follow a teacher like Dr Charles Fuller today.

I found an archive of Dr Charles Fuller’s sermons at https://www.biblebelievers.com and will begin to listen to him from this day on. I hope to find some inspiration for future messages.

Jesus said man’s greatest problem was not poverty but alienation and rebellion towards God.

When Paul the apostle stood before Herod Agrippa in Acts 24-26 Paul did not try to “promote reconciliation” or anything resembling Rick Warren’s P.E.A.C.E. plan! The apostle Paul preached the good news of Jesus Christ crucified and resurrected.

The only reconciliation Paul ever preached was to be reconciled through Christ 2 Cor 5:19

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

And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

Rick Warren does not appear to be teaching this sort of reconciliation in any of his books. His message is a humanistic cultural reconciliation to each other which may make us feel good but it doesn’t save our souls from sin.

While I can’t ultimately judge Rick Warren’s heart, (only God can) I can be sure that Rick Warren has the same choice to make as all of the rest of us.

A. Trust in the global elite who think they know what is best for mankind

B. Put your hope and trust in God through His Son Jesus Christ.

Last thing I can say is don’t believe a single word I have written here until you do the reaserch yourself. Be a Berean like the Jews in Acts 17:11. Get in the Word of God and see who is really telling the truth.

Billy Graham was known to often preach “The Bible says”… Well whenever I have done bible studies for friends or family I always ask “WHAT does the Bible say”. I want YOU to know. I am telling you don’t trust me or any other preacher, go look, seek, find. The Holy Spirit will teach you. This is promised in John 14:26, 1 John 2:27, Matthew 10:19, elsewhere. It is a marvelous adventure and one I am always blessed to be on.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 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. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Much Aloha

President Select Trump

In very few moments of our lives are we so aware that history is being made before our very eyes. Last night was one of those moments. Everyone around you is watching the same thing, talking about the same thing as you are. 25 years from now we will all probably remember exactly where we were when it was announced Donald Trump would be 45th president of the USA.

1024x1024

I always tell my kids “fair” really means “my way”. (meme created by mysanantonio.com)

As the world began to realize that Donald Trump was going to take the US election we all reacted with emotions across the board. The energy level was so high. The contrast and duality is rarely so clear as we saw yesterday evening. No matter how you feel about Donald Trump being the next President of the USA and the problems he will inherit, just pause for a minute and reflect on the uniqueness of this moment in time.

This unique moment of reality

How people can be so divided on their perceptions of reality is open to each of our favorite theories. Today we have predictions being made on Trump from the messianic to satanic. Death threats against Donald Trump have begun and violent mobs and riots are happening now all across the USA.

cw1umsgxeaaprdnHow is this possible? It is the opinion of many including this author, that the elite owners of the major mainstream media networks and social media platforms conspired to program the American public and that programming basically FAILED for most of the USA. Most of the USA was watching events with their eyes wide open. They were not listening to their friends on facebook or watching “The View” or paying any mind to any of CNNs polls or FOX news’ polls or NBCs polls or anyone else’s polls. The elite lost and they lost hard. The sum total of all the manipulation of the public’s perception of reality by facebook, google, and every main stream media outlet was an epic failure and America called it for what it was.

The elites lost control long before last night, as exhibited below in this recent video.

Obama lost control a long time ago

The brainwashed of 2016 were mostly found in the dystopian mega-city democratic liberal strongholds such as Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Hollywood and unfortunately my hometown, Honolulu. These people for the most part still do not realize they have been lied to. They really need to put down their iPhones and begin to take extreme measures, like possibly dropping out cold turkey from facebook for a year. People need to do their own research and see how the duality, manipulation and programming has been changing the way they think.

An alternative universe

I don’t really think this girl is demon possessed, but the video went viral a few nights ago. It is a good example of the kind of debates I try to avoid with people and why I QUIT facebook.

Infowars reporter Owen Shroyer ran into a group of Hillary supporters at a party in Austin Texas. The Hillary supporters had no arguments for their candidate and resorted to swearing, character assassination attacks, growling and snarling. Not to mention lying through their teeth (like Hillary herself) in order to try and win the debate.

Is this how Americans discuss and debate issues nowadays? It’s no wonder they lost if their only tactic was to try and intimidate the rest of America and curse, snarl and yell louder than the other guy.

Small town America

cw1yd3qveaevu8x

The Amish saved Pennsylvania and America, thank you for the 20 electoral votes!

Small town Americans were saying loudly that their way of life was dying and they didn’t like it. People were beaten down and hurting across America and they were going to vote to get their jobs back.

The mainstream and social media giants ignored this and made the claim that what rural America was really saying is that blacks and gay people are finally getting equal rights and that “white racist America” doesn’t like it. This is incredulous. I listened to several Trump speeches and never once heard him say anything homophobic or racist. This is what my evidence showed me.

The enemy of my enemy is who I voted for on Nov 8th

Did racists and homophobes really just take over the United States or did something else just happen? Here’s a warning we had several weeks ago and it came from a very unlikely source.

Michael Moore nails it two weeks before the election

Michael Moore seemed to be one of the few liberals who saw through the media manipulation and programming and understood and warned the world weeks ago that Trump would win and win BIG. (F-BOMB warning use headphones around kids or watch later)

Great video, Michael Moore just nails it.

President Trump, Answer to prayer?

13880231_10155011862820830_8330680937224404357_n

Pence and Trump praying?

This is an older photo taken of Trump and Pence and posted on Mike Bauer’s facebook page back in July. Were they really praying or just laughing off a joke? I don’t know but during the last few weeks I have seen many tough, hard nosed men on their knees praying for America. Alex Jones, Bill Still, myself, others, we were all on our faces and on our knees prostrate and prone before God asking him to save us from the Clintons and the globalists. Did God answer our prayer? Well I think the answer is an obvious NO DUH but this is where it also gets weird!

Donald Trump “for the house of David”?

trump-messiah

Donald Trump’s acceptance speech after winning the election on November 8, 2016. (Breaking Israel News)

I wish we could just have, “Donald Trump, New York businessman who won’t get fooled again” but I am just not getting that vibe.

Christians especially need to be alert not to be seduced by the mystical and the corrupt. You already have the pure Word of God. YES, God answered our prayers but folks, we need to stay in our bibles and remember the warnings of Jesus, Paul, Peter, John and Jude. There will be false prophets among us.

So many people seemingly want an Apocalypse Now and it seems like people across the world are hell bent to make it so. Besides the liberal hit pieces on TV and print today and the riots springing up like weeds tonight, we have all sorts of other crazies coming out of the woodwork today.

Breaking Israel News wrote today that Kabbalistic Rabbis such as Rabbi Yosef Berger are claiming Donald Trump is connected to the coming Messiah.

“When taking the gematria into account, it was clear that Trump had a spiritual edge. As Rabbi Berger pointed out, the gematria for Donald Trump in Hebrew (דונלד טראמפ) is 424, which is equal to the gematria of “Messiah for the House of David” (משיח בן דוד). The Ben Ish Chai, an authority on Jewish law and master kabbalist who lived in Baghdad 150 years ago, interpreted the number 212 as a difficult time for Israel before the Final Redemption. Trump’s gematria is twice that, signifying an ongoing Messiah process.

Just so we are clear. Gematria and Kabbalism is Jewish mysticism similar to witchcraft or magick. These men are false prophets. If I were Donald Trump I would steer very far and wide from those who would like to make him something more than he is.

I can’t imagine that Pope Francis won’t be too far behind the Kabbalists of Israel however it was the Muslims that were the first to openly congratulate Trump.

Royal Ass Kissers

saudiprince-trumpSaudi Prince Alaweed Bin Talal tweeted Donald Trump yesterday.

This is the same Royal Saudi hypocrite whose family and government has been funding the Clinton Foundation and is responsible for untold bloodshed across the planet. This Saudi royal has no class and a severe lack of protocol. A royal does not congratulate a US President with a tweet.

@realDonaldTrump please stay the HELL away from these accursed butchers. Do not meddle in their harlotry. I spent a year in Saudi Arabia and I vowed the only way I would ever willingly go back to Arabia would be to evacuate my fellow Americans when the place finally goes to hell. Donald Trump seems to know the Saudis are behind all the murdering and killing of Jews and Christians all around the world. Leave the Saudis to themselves PLEASE.

The rest of the Middle East

The first world leader to properly congratulate Donald Trump was actually Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. Egyptians are smart and honest people and they know all too well that Hillary Clinton is their enemy and an enemy of all people in the Middle East.

Just read either of these articles here and here. America wake up. The rest of the world is mostly happy Trump is going to hopefully stop the killing and stop the funding of terror across the world.

I have said it before and i’ll say it again. We are being lied to by our media. The rest of the world does not think the way we think they think. Watch any Arab or Asian or African or Russian news station. You get a much different perspective. These people are for the most part, VERY VERY happy today.

The Pathological attraction to power

2012-06-10-16-15-44One of the first big challenges for Donald Trump besides just staying alive (Secret Service should help with that) is going to be to recognize and avoid the insane and the psychopathic. They are everywhere throughout Washington DC and I imagine he already knows this.

I have at least one friend who is certain Trump is one of them (psycopathic).

Donald trump has promised to “drain the swamp” so it does appear he knows how to at least recognize the pathological. Takes one to know one? Probably a good bet.

I would like to make one request of our new President Elect, please drain the swamp in Hawaii too!!! This is the most corrupt of all 50 States in our dear union.

Whats really going on then?

cw0adxkwqaasdmvA meme is being circulated that shows Donald Trump and Ronald Reagan together with a quote appearing to be an endorsement from the grave from former President Ronald Reagan.

While the meme’s authenticity cannot be verified, it is a sample of the cult following that is sure to form around Donald Trump now that he is “President Elect” Trump.

Other apparent predictions are surfacing that appear to have predicted a Trump presidency from at least 1987.

President Trump predicted?

The Simpsons cartoon seems to have predicted a Trump presidency back in 2000. Several internet videos exist of this episode, “Bart to the Future” where Lisa Simpson becomes the first “straight” woman president. Or try this one “Ten times the Simpsons predicted the future”

simpsonstrumpepisode2000

very creepy if you ask me

Richard and Pat Nixon endorsed Trump?

cw1e7gzxuaavhdThis one actually seems TRUE! Richard and Pat Nixon predicted a Donald trump presidential win almost 30 years ago in 1987.

There are those saying that US Presidents are not elected but selected and the Freemasonic history of our great country is truly undisputable.

I will leave this rabbit hole alone for now but it appears like it will also grow legs as the days turn into weeks and months and (hopefully) years.

I was very hard on Barack Obama and equally as hard on both former Bush’s and Bill Clinton as well.

Donald Trump probably knows better than anyone the power of the internet and the alternative media which helped get him elected.

All we really want as American citizens is to pursue life liberty and happiness. Donald Trump may truly be the first actually ELECTED and NOT SELECTED president we have had in our entire Generation. I would like to think “we the people” actually won this time. He is the first president I have ever gotten behind in my entire adult life. I hope he keeps all of his promises and stays out of the back seat of convertible limousines and also stay the heck away from any grassy knolls and dark movie theaters if you get my drift.

American Uprising

Daniel Greenfield has written an article that kind of picks up where I am leaving off here. American Uprising

People need to chill out. What is the worst that could happen? When the Soviet Union collapsed LIFE WENT ON and Russia is still here. Maybe we have our own “brexit states” or a “calexit” or whatever I don’t know but LIFE WILL GO ON. People need to chill.

Keep on praying for America, we also still have many enemies both foreign and domestic. Pray for the peace of our cities and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

I will keep an eye on Donald Trump. To my friends who dislike him still, just chill out and give the guy a chance. New Yorkers are actually great people. I think he will do a great job.

Hawaiian Airlines presents Maui the Trickster

Hawaiian Airlines has wrapped one of their new A330′s in a very colorful decal with Disney Moana and Maui livery. It should be no surprise that Hawaiian is partnering with Disney again. For those of us who have been around the airlines for a little while, we might remember when the Lilo and Stitch cartoon first came out in 2002, all the Hawaiian employees were given Lilo and Stitch swag to wear on the job.

hawaiian-a330-200-n392ha-moana-banner-hawaiianlrw

While I enjoy being entertained and flying on shiny and colorful new airplanes as much as anyone else, I would like to springboard a little from this announcement by Hawaiian Airlines and offer a little background on the demi-god Maui and Disney for my readers. Consider these bullet points to discuss with your children before seeing the movie.

I don’t have much of anything to say specifically about Hawaiian Airlines except this. It’s some great looking artwork on the airplane and the overhead bins look fantastic. I am sure the passengers will have a blast riding on them!

With that being said, consider this my “spoiler alert” — we’re about to go way out into left field here. Consider just clicking away from this post right here, right now — otherwise — if you so choose to continue reading — Grab a cup of your favorite beverage and sit with me for a while, enjoy my intellectual version of a theme park thrill ride!

Maui the Trickster

Before we begin, I would like to source reference my title of Maui as “The Trickster”. I am not making this up. This “Sacred Texts” description of MAUI describes “THE deeds of Maui, the well-known trickster hero of Polynesia. The God Checker website call Maui “a real pest of a god”…

So it should be safe to establish without offending anyone, that Maui is a deceiver who, through causing all sorts of commotion and carrying on is eventually killed by another goddess. Disney for the most part, “modifies” and “repackages” everything nowadays. The original stories are not pleasant bedtime fables to lullaby our babies peacefully asleep. These are scary, frightening, Polynesian versions of similar ancient mythologies, more like The Clash of the Titans or The Brothers Grimm than anything else.

Disney’s “real mythology”

imdbscreenshotFirst of all, Disney pulls many Polynesian myths together into this storyline, according to IMDB website the Moana cartoon storyline is about “demi-gods and spirits taken from “real mythology“.

Disney claims many other times these stories are all taken from “real mythology”.

grrrrrIt sounds like quite the paradox! Is it real or is it mythology? We have heard before of jumbo shrimps and rubber bones for my pretty ugly dog. So what exactly does Disney mean when they say its “real mythology” anyway?

Tahiti Info’s website does a good job enlightening this mystery with an article they wrote The true origins of Disney princess Moana. They make a compelling argument that Moana is actually from Tutuila Island, in the American Samoa archipelago. What they also determine is that Disney is not simply using Hawaiian legend and lore as a pretext for their cartoon, but arguably, Disney may have gone to extreme lengths to maintain accuracy, possibly even in the depiction of Moana’s village which looks remarkably like Afono village on Tutuila in American Samoa.

moanasvilliage

afono-villiage

I will show you a few more examples of how far Disney had gone to depict this “real mythology”. Many other examples are just jumping out at me.

Maybe other people can find a few other references I have missed in the trailers, or possibly in the actual film this November.

The Moana Cartoon Trailers

The movie has not been released yet but Disney reveals quite a bit in their many trailers. What we know so far is a young girl named Moana teams up with the Trickster & shape shifting demigod Maui to save humanity from a “beast rising up out of the sea”. Everyone learns the power of love and lives happily ever after i’m guessing, but I have yet to see the entire film.

I don’t know where to start, but maybe a montage of the current available trailers is a good place. If you haven’t seen the Moana trailers yet. These are all the currently released trailers, including a Japanese one. It is about 6 minutes long and I will refer to it several times throughout this article. Watch this video first if you have the time.

Moana’s Quest

According to Disney’s Moana movie website, …Moana sails out on a daring mission to “save her people”. During her journey, Moana meets Maui, who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors

One of the first “monsters” Moana meets along her journey is heralded by a lightning bolt striking the ocean.

lightning

lightning falling from heaven @ :10 seconds

Here is a screenshot of the Moana trailer taken at :10 seconds. Nothing really to see here? For those of us familiar with the esoteric we know the #1 reference of Satan is “lighting falling from heaven” and is first referenced in this manner in Luke 10:18. Is this some of the “real mythology” being referred to by Disney?

In the upside down world of the occult, the lightning bolt has become one of the most popular symbols of satanists and occultists. Is Disney ignorant to these symbols? They seem to be so accurate in their attention to detail on all the other “real mythology” they portray. Whatever you believe about Disney, the next scene at :13 thirteen seconds seems to confirm my suspicions about the lightning bolt.

beast

“the beast out of the sea” @ 13 seconds

As soon as the lightning bolt hits the water, we see a flaming demon or devil rise up out of the sea.

This imagery is not new and found throughout film and literature. What you are seeing here is the “beast out of the sea”. Some may see this is a nod or a tribute to Godzilla which one of the first films to popularize the “beast out of the sea” meme in film. Now this sounds a lot like Revelation chapter 13 which describes precisely a rising “beast out of the sea”. The book of Revelation, found at the end of the New Testament, is what I refer to as “one of the scarier parts of the bible”. So I just realized something as I am typing this out. Revelation 13 is being depicted at the 13 second mark. Coincidence or more “real mythology” hidden in plain sight according to Disney’s Magic Kingdom?

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, (KJV)

mona2-2I keep coming across this image on the web. I don’t find it on any of the trailers so cant tell if it is the same lava monster we see in the trailer, or a different female lava monster. A lot of Disney fan websites seem to think its Madam Pele. If the Revelation 13 connection proves to hold water, this scene may somehow be referencing Revelation 17 which describes a woman “that sitteth upon many waters” (v1) and who also “sits upon the beast” (v3).

These guys at Disney are truly amazing. Disney again knocks this one out of the ballpark. They take an otherwise frightening concept previously only found in horror or sci-fi genres,  (like A.I. in Big Hero 6) and get 8 and 9 year old kids everywhere cheering for it. I have a very hard time sharing these scary stories with my kids but here Disney just hits another HOME RUN. This is just incredible how they repackage horror into kids films.

The Kakamora?

kakamora-fallback_05a9dffaAnother example or Disney’s “real mythology” are the Kakamora. At 1:25 Moana and Maui run into “The Kakamora”. The Kakamora are not cute little new Disney critters but more ancient “real mythology” just like Disney promised. According to South Pacific Melanesian lore, the Kakamora are cannibalistic little people, similar to gnomes, elves, dwarfs etc. The Mythology Dictionary, describes the Kakamora as: Spirits in Melanesia, living in trees and caves. These beings are envisaged as humanlike, with long nails, varying in size from a few inches to about five feet in height. They sometimes kill humans and eat their flesh.

1428605815mep_1Hawaiian mythology had similar beings called menehune.

There is a Christian Author named Steve Quayle who recently finished a book called “Little Creatures” and it catalogues many of the rest of these, the opposites of the Giants, the little people… Steve Quayle is a very thought provoking author. I can’t say if I agree/disagee with him, but I have enjoyed some of his other books. Find it also on Amazon here.

Curiously, an old book written by a Melanesian missionary, Charles Fox, portrayed the Kakamora as having angels wings.

Night on a Bald Mountain and Disney’s ideas about Hell

The “Night on a Bald Mountain” scene from the original Fantasia proves Disney has been introducing children to the devil, Hell and the occult since the 1940s. Only by now, in 2016 they have just gotten very good at making it a lot more fun.

What a contrast from the 1940s Disney “Fantasia” version of Hell and the kinder, gentler 2016 version of Hell in the new “Moana”.

bottomlesspitThe original Fantasia had ghoulish scenes of lost souls burning in Hell, while at 2:05 into the new Moana trailer we see Maui opening a seemingly bottomless pit which will take them “to the realm of monsters”

Maui gleefully jumps into the bottomless pit and beckons Moana to join him.

When Maui opens the pit he yells back to Moana “don’t worry its farther down than it looks” and after a few more seconds, “i’m still falling”. Moana still looks scared but she jumps.

The book of Revelation chapter 9 describes “a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit”.

Is this what Disney is portraying here? Is Maui depicting the angel of Revelation 9 opening the bottomless pit? (insert CERN and portal conspiracy theories here) I’m just trying to ask an honest question here, but again, I would have to think, their accuracy to the rest of the mythology in the film suggests they are not leaving any detail to chance in their cartoons.

This whole scene reminds me of Metallica’s Jump in the Fire song in the 1980s. The lyrics urged us (all kids at the time) to: Follow me now my child / not the meek or the mild / but do just as I say / So come on / Jump in the Fire

Deities and Demigods

Stories of the demi-gods are found all throughout the Pentateuch and the New Testament, although rarely taught on in the more common 501c3 type churches found around Hawaii and the USA.

According to the dictionaries, Demigods are beings who have some of the powers of a god : a being in mythology who is part god and part human.

How does somebody become part god/part human you may ask? That is kind of an R rated topic in most churches today but according to Genesis 6 and other parts of the Bible like Jude 6, and 2 Peter 2:4 it appears there were some angelic shenanigans going on around the time of Noah. Psalm 82:1, Revelation 12:7-9, Ephesians 6:9 and Job 1:6 all seem to confirm the existence and corruption of at least some of the Angelic realm.

We first see these part god/part men beings, sometimes referred to as “Giants”, “Titans” or “Nephilim” appear in Genesis 6. They are the unnatural offspring of the Sons of God and the Daughters of men.

They are often described as the “heroes of old” in many translations of Genesis. “when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown”. (NIV) 

Disney seems to go out of their way to make sure we all get that in the trailer when Maui corrects Moana in her worship of him in this next scene.

How to Worship Maui, according to Disney…

Disney wants to make sure Moana (and all our kids) are sure to worship Maui properly and never forget to call him by his proper name, the “hero of men”.

The worship scene takes place from 0:48 seconds through 1:05 when Maui corrects Moana in her praise and worship of him.

Please watch that clip again and also watch around 2:40-2:45 when Moana is again, clearly worshipping Maui again, her eyes closed, in complete devotion and prayer.

This is religion. Who needs church when we have Disney! “Moana and Maui will save us all” (watch again @ :15 to :26 seconds into the trailer). Just imagine if they taught us all to worship Jesus Christ so accurately!

The return of the Giants

I know many of my readers do not study the bible, so just to be clear, these offspring of the sons of God in Genesis 6 are NOT the good guys in that story. Specifically, the good guy is a man named Noah, but that is another story. The appearance of the Giants/Heroes/Nephilim in Genesis 6 is actually one of the reasons that God destroys the Earth in a global flood. The heroes of old/giants/nephilim are the bad guys. Maui is one of them. Even the Polynesian stories agree he is a trickster/deceiver. We do NOT worship Maui or any of the demi-gods. They are best not trifled with! This warning found on an old bumper sticker just might apply!

affairsofdragons

Now this is where it gets interesting. Giants are having something of a renaissance in films these days. There are no shortage of new blockbuster films featuring and glorifying ancient tales of the Giants. Disneys “The BFG”, Percy Jackson’s Sea of Monsters, the Japanese anime “Attack on Titan” are just a few recent examples.

Several shows have recently appeared on the false History Channel like “Search for Lost Giants” and “Ancient Aliens” which popularize the same stories of the old Giants/Titans and demi-gods. Are Disney and the false History Channel cooperating in popularizing these false narratives of Earth’s ancient world? The History Channel is owned by Disney so hey, why not! They are all one big happy family.

Since I mentioned “Ancient Aliens”, Chris White does an EXCELLENT JOB debunking every single Ancient Aliens episode in this 3 hour long full length film. Save that link and watch it later as this is slightly off the main topic of Maui and the new Disney cartoon but real good stuff and it removes much of the mystery behind the movie magic and story telling here.

So why such a fascination with the Giants all of a sudden? I don’t know for certain what they are thinking in Hollywood but I do know what the Bible says about the topic.

Isaiah 13 describes and end of days judgement against Babylon where according to several translations, God says,

“I give command, and I bring them: giants are coming to fulfil my wrath, rejoicing at the same time and insulting”. (LXX)

Rejoicing at the same time and insulting? That sounds a little like the “trickster-pest god” maybe? Disney “real mythology” again? If you ask me, it sure does seem like Disney constantly hits bullseyes. They are precise!

revelationJesus himself says in Luke 17:26 and Matthew 24:37 that the end of time will be just like the “days of Noah”. Now, while many churches and theologians debate whether or not this means giants and demigods, the point here is Disney seems to think so, or at least think they can bank some serious coin on repackaging these old stories.

Maui’s Tattoos, Shapeshifting, and Moses references

I could go on and on. I’m not even going to start with Maui’s tattoos and the shapeshifting or the magical fishhook in the rest of the trailers but suffice it to say, I have barely scratched the surface here. At 3:55 we see a baby Moana parting the sea like Moses in Exodus. The symbolism just doesn’t stop.

In the Bible, Moses teaches the children of Israel to worship the true God. In Disney’s upside down Magic Kingdom, Moana is a false Moses, teaching our children to worship false gods.

Hawaiian Airlines Employees

If any Hawaiian Airlines employees have read this far please don’t take any offense. I’m not hating on Hawaiian. Many corporations and airlines honor the magical and the occult. I myself work for a corporation that has entire divisions named after the Giants of Greek mythology so what are we going to do? These symbols and references are more and more all around us. We are not supposed run away and hide in the forest or some remote island. Jesus Himself instructed His followers to “Occupy till I come”. (Luke 19:13) There’s not much else we can do except be educated and also to educate our children.

I will keep flying on Hawaiian when the opportunities arise, and I will also take my kids to see Moana sometime after Thanksgiving, and we will have great fun while doing it however, they will know beforehand exactly what it is they are watching.

I sometimes have to apologize to my kids. I think I ruin the fun for them sometimes but I am just being a good parent. Being entertained is a wonderful activity to enjoy together as a family however according to Deuteronomy chapter 6 our main purpose as parents is not to entertain our children, but rather instruct them! The buck stops here, with us.

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

Much Aloha

 

Disney’s Moana Trailer, Maui and… Io?

Just thought i’d throw this brand new trailer up for Disney’s new “Moana” cartoon movie. I promise I have never seen it before writing my post yesterday. I just so happened to mention yesterday that my favorite god of the ancient Hawaiian pantheon was Maui. Oddly enough, the latest creation from Disney is a tale about the same exact demigod Maui, played by Dwayne, “The Rock” Johnson! Weird enough, but then at precisely 33 seconds into the Trailer Dwayne/Maui flips upside down and seems to yell out in his chant “Io”.

If you missed my article yesterday “Io” is the same entity referred to by Matt Higa and Daniel Kikawa in the linked foursquare convention 2016 video and the problematic and controversial book by Daniel Kikawa “Perpetuated in Righteousness”.

Well at least Matt Higa now has another reference besides “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”. Maybe Matt Higa and Daniel Kikawa can take out the whole church for movie night?

I think we’re going to get a YouTube channel going when I return to Hawaii next week. We will be looking for content (not really a problem at the moment) and guests to interview. If anyone wants to help me, debate me, agree or disagree with me, change the subject, whatever, sound off here first and leave me a message.

Higa and Kikawa can carry on and continue quoting Spielberg and now Disney, I will end today’s post with a few verses from Timothy.

As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

 

Foursquare Convention Connection 2016 in Honolulu

During the weekend of June 1st, the Hawaii Convention Center was ground zero for Foursquare Convention Connection 2016. I did not attend but have watched several videos and heard lots of first hand accounts from my many friends who were there.

Doing the Haka (ha’a) for Jesus?

It took me a while to find the actual archive of all the videos from that weekend on the foursquare.org/convention website but they are here. https://vimeo.com/album/3885992

When you search through the videos, the entire weekend is there, but before we discuss certain events at the convention in more detail, lets me first give a little more background to the topic at hand.

I remember in 1994 when reading this book “Perpetuated in Righteousness” by Daniel Kikawa, I would meet a person that would become a life long friend of mine to this day. This person is Mike Oppenheimer. He broke down the problems in Kikawa’s book for me person to person. I can roughly summarize, but for all the information, see Mike Oppenheimers original work on this teaching found here Perpetuated in Righteousness or Perpetuating a Modern Myth

9780964359505Basically Daniel Kikawa in his book “Perpetuated in Righteousness” teaches the concept that the Hawaiians were descended from the ancient Jews and held a belief in God identical to Christianity without it ever being revealed to them by any missionaries or ever having the Old or New Testament!

I could have told Mike Oppenheimer it was bunk right away. I just don’t see Jews as a tribe or nation getting on canoes and sailing all around the Pacific doing the ha’a and the hula but lets see what else Kikawa says.

Daniel Kikawa goes on to propose in his book that the Hawaiian’s knew God from the “gospel in the stars”. In his book Perpetuated in Righteousness he states that the Hawaiian’s gods, Kane, Ku and Lono were the one God called Io, who is actually Yahweh; that all three are co- equal.

This is garbage equal only to the Jehovah Witnesses who taught the pyramids in Egypt also held the gospel message!

While a few of the more devout bible students may be thinking “hey, this might be what is referenced in Rom.1:18-25″, Well what Romans 1 actually tells us is that when mankind sees the evidence of God’s power in nature, they naturally suppress it, and change it into a lie, worshipping the creation and creatures instead of the Creator. The Hawaiians were no different until the Word of God came to them via the New Testament. The Hawaiians needed the bible just like we need it still today.

Where does it ever say in the Bible the gospel was written in the stars? The point that Kikawa is trying to make is that the Hawaiians, (“descendants of the ancient Jews” according to only Kikawa), knew about God, Jesus His Son, His plan of sacrifice, and the resurrection. He says that they learned all of this by looking at the stars and they called his name Io, Lono, Ku, and Kane?

I love the Hawaiian people and have many lifelong Hawaiian friends but yeah guys, this is a lie.

So you may be wondering why am I bringing this up now? Hasn’t it been over 20 years since this book was written? Well, yes however. this teaching has popped up again at the “Connection 2016″ Foursquare church convention in Honolulu.

Watch this above video from about the 3:50 mark pastor Matt Higa from New Hope Kauai teaches that “Io” is Jehovah God and was a trinity with three persons in him. Matt Higa goes on to cite “Raiders of the Lost Ark” as a reference!

Was that the book of 1st or 2nd Spielbergs? I’m going to need a reference I don’t have my “New Hollywood Translation” handy. Fast forward to 7:25 in the video and find out exactly who Matt Higa’s spiritual mentor is, he tells us he is sitting right there in the audience with them, none other than “Daniel Kikawa” the author of the 1994 book “Perpetuated in Righteousness”. Wow!

At 14:00 through the video, I believe that’s possibly Daniel Kikawa himself sitting in his chair as the rest of the crowd is singing around him in Hawaiian. Daniels picture can be found here on the Aloha Ke Akua website.

OK, so this stuff may have been slipped into the Foursquare convention unbeknownst to Foursquare or maybe it is being openly taught at some Four square and New Hope churches in Hawaii. I do not know but only what a few friends of mine are saying. Rumors are just those, rumors. I prefer to use facts so instead of guessing or only sidetracking and complaining, let’s say we just stick to the facts?

Facts are good, OK. Go to the bottom of the same webpage with Daniel Kikawa’s picture (Aloha Ke Akua website.) and lets start there. Who really endorses Daniel Kikawa and supports him and allows him to teach and spread around this myth in our beloved churches? We get our first clue here. It appear the entire website is being endorsed by; Libby Carolan IMPACT Center – University of the Nations. Ok, who is this?

Hmm, now I don’t know who Libby Carolan is but the University of the Nations (UofN) is the YWAM (Youth With a Mission) missionary training center in Kona, Hawaii. I have been going to a Calvary Chapel for the past 25 years and while we don’t let Daniel Kikawa preach or sell his books there, we do know who YWAM is. Danny Lehman who is the YWAM Director in Honolulu YWAM has been a personal friend of mine and a pillar of the Calvary Chapel Hawaii movement.  Many of us are all very familiar with YWAM and UofN. Maybe it’s all just a mistake that it seems YWAM/UofN is promoting Daniel Kikawa? Well the webpage tells us to click over to the “about” page so let’s go there and see what this “Aloha Ke Akua” is really all about.

When we get to the ABOUT page of the Aloha Ke Akua website (Daniel Kikawa) we scroll down to find several endorsements. (Hey there’s Leon Siu! He and his wife Malia were my neighbors in Aiea a really long time ago).

Aha, ok so if we keep looking and we start to find several more YWAM endorsements. On the Advisory Board of Aloha Ke Akua ministries we find none other than JOHN DAWSON / PRESIDENT OF YWAM, and TOM HALLAS / YWAMS FIELD DIRECTOR both advising and endorsing Mr Kikawa.

Why is this and exactly how deep does this rabbit hole go? Is there just nothing to see here and is this just another guilt by association argument like Bud and Bill keep trying to tell me? By even mentioning this will I be asked to leave Calvary Chapel like what happened to Mike Oppenheimer?

Now, before everyone gets all excited here or too overly emotional that our sacred cows have been offended, lets try to stay on point, “order in the court” as they say. What we are talking about is simply this.

During the first weekend of June of 2016, in front of 3000 Bible believing Christians at a foursquare convention in Honolulu, Our God was profanely referred to by the names Io, Lono, Ku and Kane. Go back and watch the video again. That’s why I have the original video linked. That’s exactly what Matt Higa pastor of New Hope Kauai says. It’s at 3 minutes 50 seconds where Matt Higa tells 3 thousand people “Io is Jehovah God and the trinity is Lono, Kane and Ku”. Matt Higa then references a scene from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” as his proof. Go watch it again. That’s what he says.

This is why people don’t want to go to our churches nowadays and I can’t blame them. People know when their logic and sensibilities are being assaulted.

Matt, if you get forwarded my blog and read this you are welcome to contact me. If you got something you would like to say, go right ahead please explain yourself. I try to not make things personal and can really be a fun guy to hang out with but whatever man, you have several choices.

  1. Ignore me, hope i go away (i do typically get bored with things quickly and often move along so this might be your best bet, however you will still have to answer to the One whose name you continue to profane)
  2. Defend yourself. This would certainly be the most entertaining option but I prefer #3.
  3. Apologize, get yourself right with the Lord. He loves to forgive, He even brags about how He loves to forgive, but be sincere. https://www.openbible.info/topics/god_forgiving
  4. Try to get the video removed then lie about it but i really don’t recommend that. Too many witnesses already.

I don’t have a dog in this fight. Matt you go ahead and do whatever seems right in your own eyes. I predict #1 will work just fine for both of us… (i still prefer 3) Anyway, moving right along.

For the record the Hawaiians did not worship “One God” or a triune God either, but a plethora of deities, demigods and goddesses. This “Lono and Kane is really Jesus and the Holy Spirit” nonsense must sound just as silly to the Hawaiians of the old religion just as much as we believers of the one true and living God. Here is an image which includes a few more of the Hawaiian deities and demigods of old. I don’t see my favorite Hawaiian Superman “Maui” on there, so safe to say there are even more gods than this mentioned in the old Hawaiian religion.

god-diagram

No trinity here!

Now I have friends that are routine blasphemers and all sorts of other hell raisers & I still love them and respect their constitutional right to blaspheme and raise hell but i won’t let you bring it in my home or my church. Yes, in America you can still worship any deity or demigod or angel or your own self or a stuffed animal or whatever it is that floats your proverbial canoe. Just to be clear I am not hating/condemning/judging anyone. Just for the record, I support having weird friends and enjoy all my friendships, especially my friendships with those who don’t believe exactly the way I do. They are the ones who make me think the hardest!

What I am doing is holding the churches accountable. The churches that claim to be the holders of God’s Word and God teachings and take our children from us on Sunday and Friday nights and fill them full of these heretical myths need to be more careful and more discerning. Who is vetting these teachers we allow onto our pulpits? Anyone?

Since this problem doesn’t seem to be going away, this is what I think we need. First of all from Foursquare and New Hope. and last from Calvary Chapel. I would just like some clarity on the Aloha Ke Akua movement.

For me YWAM is being perfectly clear. They DO ENDORSE Aloha Ke Akua and Daniel Kikawa. YWAM corporately doesn’t need to explain anything.

So I couldn’t help myself. I have known Danny Lehman for years and have his cellular number so before I would write something I might later regret I thought I would just give him a call. I just finished speaking with him and basically the long and short of it is this. Danny Lehman said;

Danny Kikawa is his friend but he doesn’t agree with everything Kikawa has said or written and can not personally vouch for him.

I have weird friends too and Danny Lehman is always fun to talk to. I told Danny I disagree with him on several positions he made during the phone call but overall he and I see eye to eye on several other things. Iron sharpens iron and hopefully Danny Lehman remains open to talking with me again in the future.

Now can Foursquare, New Hope and Calvary Chapel please do the same? Just say Aloha Ke Akua YES/NO. You can even just tweet it if you want. This should not be so hard.

Last thing I want to say is that Hawaii is a small place and the churches are even smaller. I know Leon Siu, Danny Lehman and several pastors in several churches and I count them all as nice people who were very friendly to me so I can not and don’t want to be rude to them in return. All I am looking for is clarity and some accountability.

Finally, I am not a bible teacher but would like to offer up one bible verse for Daniel Kikawa and Matt Higa who so affectionately like to identify themselves with the Jews. Take a lesson from us. One thing we learned a long time ago was this.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; 6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Christian Dominionists, the Road to Holocaust and Brussels Belgium Terror Attacks

Rick Green, partner with David Barton’s Wallbuilders recently came through Honolulu and spoke at a few churches.

They are a very entertaining and dynamic duo. Both of their names are on the Wallbuilders websites and podcasts so what one does, the other is a partner or an accomplice to. Typically Barton does the heavy teaching and book writing while Rick Green defends David Barton from critics. This is why I like to refer to Green as the consigliere. It is tongue in cheek and I mean no offense by it. I am not saying Barton and Green are in in the mafia. It is the way I prefer to describe their relationship.

I have been a subscriber to their podcast for a while. I have friends who really like them although I can’t say I am a real fan. They just lose me with their associations and arguments that just make me very uncomfortable. I will explain why.

Christian Dominionism

In a nutshell David Barton is a Christian Dominionist. There is no need for me to do a complete study on them or what they teach. Hal Lindsey has been a highly respected teacher since the 1970 book “The Late Great Planet Earth”. Hal Lindsey is one of the last of a generation of heavy duty bible teachers which includes Walter Martin and other SOLID and MORE NOBLE teachers in accordance with the book of Acts 17:11.

Hal broke it all down in the 1989 book called The Road to Holocaust. Hal has not changed his tune much since then. A recent video is up on hallindsey.com where he breaks down Christian Dominionism again for us.

Dominionism, also known as “Kingdom Now” or “New Apostolic Reformation” (NAR) is theologically all over the map but what they all seem to agree on is this. They all want to implement a conservative “Christian” government that will rule over the rest of society at any cost and are willing to get in bed with anyone else who agrees with their new and improved, baseball, hotdog, easy to swallow frappuccino version of history, religion and politics.

Hal Lindsey and I agree, Dominionism is NOT what the Bible teaches. According to Hal Lindseys book, Dominionism eventually leads to anti-semitism which will eventually bring you face to face with heresy. It is in fact just as Hal Lindsey warned, “The Road to Holocaust”.

Before I switch gears, the NAR or Kingdom Now pied piper of our day is Lance Wallinau with his “7 mountains mandate”. Barton and Green seem to do a real good job keeping their noses clean from any direct relationships with the heretics HOWEVER.

Right Wing Watch has an audio clip of David Barton and his consigliere Rick Green AGREEING and ADVOCATING with the 7 mountains heresy taught by Lance Wallnau. The link to the audio can be found in this article here, David Barton Advocates Seven Mountains Dominionism. It appears Right Wing Watch has the evidence. If the evidence is wrong, Barton or Green are free to send me their answer directly. I would be more than happy to post their rebuttal to this otherwise clear audio.

GUILT BY ASSOCIATION?

I cant make it any easier to understand. Most of our churches teach the “End Times” will involve an anti-Christ, tribulations, a rapture, and a second coming of Jesus Christ.

Wallnau, and the Kingdom Now camp, not only reject traditional pre-milennialism, (not a heresy itself I know that) they go much further and teach that Christians need to take dominion over their areas of influence while “shaking what is happening on earth and take dominion”. They eventually go out and attack others who teach otherwise. Lance Wallinau attacks Hal Lindsey in this example. This is not what my church has taught me so it’s a bit of a surprise when I see fellow christians, pastors and many others eating this stuff up. The bible I have read and the pastors I have known have taught me to 1) study the Word of God, 2) preach the Gospel, 3) fellowship and 4) pray daily. Not any of the rest of this nonsense.

To add insult to injury now I have been personally attacked for daring to bring this up with a trusted friend. I have been accused of “slander” and not doing MY RESEARCH and have even been threatened that I am speaking out against anointed “men of God”? Are you kidding me? What is this? The Church of Scientology?

I don’t mind if we have friendships with people that believe differently than us. Please go right ahead and continue to have weird friends. I do it! Some of my best friends are into many beliefs other than traditional Christianity. I love these friends of mine, but I will not let them teach me or my children their false doctrines.

MORE QUESTIONABLE DAVID BARTON ASSOCIATIONS

These guys lose me almost right away with their silly beliefs about our founding fathers but it gets much worse. David Barton oversees Keep the Promise PAC which is supporting Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential bid into the many multiple tens of millions of dollars. Through his PAC, David Barton sponsors HUGE rallys for Ted Cruz where he appears with the devout Mormon and former Fox News blow hard Glen Beck. As a matter of fact, just a few days ago, Glen Beck announced that Ted Cruz is Fulfillment of White Horse Mormon Prophecy’. Before I continue, allow that to sink in for just a minute.

I really want to keep this short so ill just quickly point out one last video, that according to the title, “David Barton wants to disciple you”… along with his friend, the high prince of false and apostate teachers, the blasphemous health and wealth pope of prosperity Kenneth Copeland.

How many Kenneth Copeland videos do I have to watch to know this is wrong? I’ll give you the answer the number is ZERO. Go ahead and accuse me of a guilt by association fallacy or throwing the baby out with the bathwater but I don’t care. This stuff will not fly in the persecuted church or the underground church. It is for gullible Americans, nothing more.

This proves at a minimum a severe lack of discernment from David Barton. Maybe someone else can find the stomach to dig through the trash and find a gem or two or a smoking gun in these Kenneth Copeland videos but I am going to move along.

These guys are at a minimum just a “little bit off” and I don’t want them or others like them (General Jerry Boykin etc cough cough) teaching me, my pastor, my wife, my friends or my kids.

THE BRUSSELS BELGIUM TERROR ATTACKS

September 11th 2001 became forever remembered as “911″. The London Subway attacks will always be remembered as “7/7″. Well it is still too early to know for sure but I have to wonder if the Brussels attacks will be remembered as “322″.

322

Maelbeck Station bombed at 9:11 AM on 3/22

(3/23 AM Update) No other mainstream news sources seems to have caught the 322 oddity. I guess I am fringe. Charisma Magazine has asked some interesting questions.

I am not one of the pre-loaded “false flag” crowd. I don’t jump to conclusions like that but the date and timing of this event does not appear to be random. As I have said many times, I am an evidence guy. Show me your evidence first. Terrorists are perfectly capable of blowing up all sorts of places including airports and subway stations, and they like using dates and times as their signatures. I am not sure when ISIS Jihadists adopted 322 as their signature but apparently it is the date they chose to attack the EU Headquarters.

Here are a few other observations I made today.

421374_4744005117428_2013970082_n

Me at the EU Building just a few blocks from Maelbeek subway station in 2011, click for full size!

I have walked down the Rue in Brussels, Belgium where the Maelbeek Subway station is that was bombed today. I knew exactly where it was. Just outside of the Maelbeek train station is the EU building. The geography is significant. This would be tantamount to bombing a subway station in Washington DC one block away from the White House or Congress.

Next, Hal Lindsey and Dave Hunt have always taught that bible prophecy would be centered around a “Revived Roman Empire” European anti christ person that would arise from inside these very buildings. I went “street view” on Google Earth and showed my wife the statue in front of the Berlaymont building, (EU Headquarters) just to the East of the Maelbeek Train station that was bombed.

Lipsius

Nod to Dave Hunt, “A Woman Rides the Beast”, one block away from Maelbeek Subway station bombing

1 Woman riding the beast statue, Check!

Now this is where it gets weird. ISIS theologians teach that their Mahdi will come when “the armies of Rome” attack them in Dabiq, Syria. Are ISIS jihadists attempting to rope or snare the armies of Rome into a war? Many before me have already proposed they must do exactly this or their theology crumbles.

Is what we are witnessing a bit of a competition here? The Muslims that want to be the antichrist have attacked the Romans that want to be the antichrist? Sounds like a warm up to Daniel Chapter 12 if you ask me.

Who will be the real rider on the white horse? I’ll tell you one thing it is not going to be Ted Cruz I don’t care what Glen Beck scribbles on his chalkboard!

How does it all tie together? I don’t think any of it really does except possibly in the grander picture of good versus evil. The fact of the matter and what the evidence is showing today is simply the furthest thing from what the dominionists believe! I’ll throw my hat in with Hal Lindsey on this one.

To wrap it up, and I know I have been all over the place tonight. Do you want to avoid dominionists and emergent church doctrines from creeping into our churches? Would you like to be safe from falling for bogus teachers and bringing dirty politics into our sacred sanctuaries?

I would like to suggest this. How about we do what the church did in the book of Acts. 1) continue steadfastly in the apostles doctrine 2) fellowship with other believers 3) breaking of bread 4) Prayer and if I may I add #5) sharing our faith.

We don’t need anything else.

Pastors if you say “I just teach the Word of God” then mean it. We don’t want to be entertained by our churches. We want to be fed and taught and have a place of sanctuary.

Pastor Chuck Smith nailed it in one of his final warnings to the CCOF (private pastors only email list) and this document has been circulated somewhat publicly since.

2 Peter 2 says But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.

And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

When I read  2 Peter it says they SHALL BE and SHALL BRING not might be or might bring or possibly bring, or bring somewhere else to the church down the road, but not bring to us. It says SHALL BRING. Does everyone see the seriousness of this warning?

Be careful teachers. Be careful Christians. This is not a game. The time is short.

Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.

We just need Jesus. We don’t need distractions and entertainment. Our world is lost. Politics is NOT the answer to our problems. Jesus is. We should be showing our friends and family the way, not trying to get them to think our church “is cool” or relevant. Jesus is all we need.

Try sharing Ken Copeland or David Bartons books and videos with anyone in the persecuted or underground church. They will just give you blank stares. An excellent video has come out from behind the islamic curtain and the underground persecuted church. I recommend watching this one to everyone. Grab a beverage of your choice and prepare yourself for a little perspective.

That’s about it for tonight.

Beast vs. Christ (short film)

I have always wanted a large professional studio to put the Book of Revelation to film.

Maybe my cousin over at Branded Entertainment will see this post but he’s probably too busy with the Huayi’s in China working on THUNDER AGENTS.

Here is a great short video from Christian media and film maker Michael Chang aka mighty.la describing what a literal Beast vs. Christ battle might look like.

He is doing a great job. Last year Mighty.LA made another video that went viral called “Who Would Dare to Love ISIS”.

Lord bless filmmaker Michal Chang and guide him as he puts these ideas to film. Keep him safe and in your protection as a sheep among wolves. Amen!

Religion and Politics

So either I must have missed something or all the worlds Catholics are being taken for complete imbeciles today.

Earlier today, Pope Francis, apparently picking a fight with US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, pontificated, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian, this is not in the gospel.”

oh-really

Someone just woke up the Oh Really? baby

The entire Vatican is a Citadel (or Castle) surrounded on every side by immense walls!

vatican

The Vatican’s walls were built more than 1,000 years ago at the behest of Pope Leo IV to protect the sovereign state against Muslim pirates.

The Vatican is a Castle with walls everywhere

The Vatican is a Castle with lots of walls

MORE PICTURES OF THE VATICAN WITH ITS HUGE WALLS

I would have to agree it seems the Roman Vatican is meddling in American politics in favor of Catholic Marco Rubio on the eve of the South Carolina primary. Whatever! This should be highly offensive to Catholics everywhere!

Just for the record, I agree Trump is probably not a Christian. He appears to be completely unfamiliar with the bible (two Corinthians? ugh) and I find him extremely annoying and I just don’t like him. That being said, I myself obey the Bible and do not cast judgement on Trump or even Obama or any politician. We are ordered in our Bibles to pray for our nations leaders.

1 Timothy Chapter 2 (that’s first Timothy Mr Trump) breaks it down. Pray for our Kings and all that are in authority,… Then… when it comes to all people being saved, we are taught that is not a political problem. Click and read it for yourselves. It seems pretty clear to me.

Mixing politics and religion is NEVER a good idea because our religion will always become diluted and take a back seat to our politics. Believe, and have faith in God. That is a good thing. Then go vote for the strong man. This planet is a dangerous place. Our faith in God is ultimately MORE important than our politics but political answers will never solve today’s problems. Vote for the strong man. The world is a dangerous place. Saving people from their sins is not in the job description or the office of the politician. Keep them separate!

The Emerging Laodicean Church, False Teachers, Hillsong United, and Celebrity Evangelism

Recently there has been a bit of what I could call an epiphany in how I see Christianity today. I have always had an sensitive personality when it comes to scams and deception, in and out of the church. Sometimes I know when I’m being lied to right away, sometimes i’m also a little more gullible and it takes 25 years for me to figure it out.

As students of the Bible, we have always been aware of the prophecy to the 7 churches in the Book of Revelation mirroring the history of the church. Hal Lindsey, Tim Lahaye and many others often want to claim that “we” are the church of Philadephia and the Laodecian church are all those future sinners in the Tribulation period. We are taught that “we” aren’t those lukewarm Laodecians, right? Were all going up in the rapture right? We are the good guys? right? right?

Well lets take a fresh look at the evidence again. Start with the actual text of the Book of Revelation. The Lord tells us he willanoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see“. (say a quick prayer here, ask the Lord to give us holy wisdom, annoint our eyes, and show us the truth, according to His promised Word, Amen)

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. [Rev 3:14-22 KJV]

For most of my Christian walk I was probably 75-80% certain that prophetically speaking, I was in a “Church of Philadelphia” and the Laodecian church was something yet future. Maybe it is, maybe I was right, but at this time I am becoming more and more convinced that the Laodecian church is here right now. This post will explore that possibility and present evidence to support this assertion. It is not meant to be an exhaustive study, but I will provide outside links at certain points and enough hard evidence along the way to make my case. It is my intent to open this topic up for discussion. Light is always clarifying. Secrecy and hiding things from the membership or congregation suggests darkness is at work. if you are reading this and your salary is paid for by a church you should be doubly concerned. What does the Bible teach?

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them]. [Eph 5:11 KJV]

FALSE TEACHERS

The last few years, I was attracted to the teaching of Jonathan Cahn, author of the “Harbinger” book and video series. I first heard about him through advertisements that would pop on my news feeds coming from “World Net Daily”, (WND) a somewhat sensationalist book selling website. I knew WND primarily sold books and my antennas should have been up, but I fell for it. The entire Isaiah 9:10 prophecy, and how it was repeating itself in the USA after September 11, 2001 was very creepy. Jonathan would describe it as a “mystery”, it was kind of like a “Christian X-file”. I would not buy any of his books but I watched and shared his videos.

I-am-not-sayingJonathan Cahn was always very careful in his books and videos to say he is not setting any specific dates or times and that none of us could “put God in a box” but then just like Giorgio Tsoukalos the False History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” guy, Jonathan Cahn would say, “i’m not setting any dates, but the crash will begin on September 15th 2015″.

That sounded to me like he was setting a date but maybe not. So on September 16th, 2015 when nothing tangible happened, Jonathan Cahn fans were able to say “meh, he never set any dates” and go along following his videos.

I remained subscribed to Jonathan Cahn’s YouTube feeds but my alert level went up a notch. I kept kept watching but now purely from a watchman perspective, I stopped sharing his videos but confess I was one of the people who thought “meh he didn’t set any dates”. I didn’t rush to judge him or label him a “cahn man” right away like others but I had a genuine curiosity now as to how he would handle himself now that the 2015 “Shemiteh” dates had passed. I still gave him the benefit of the doubt at that time, regardless of the September date passing.

bakkersdozenntitledIt was around a month later, sometime in November 2015 when Jonathan Cahn was back on the Jim Bakker show (yes, the same disgraced 1980′s televangelist Jim Bakker formerly married to and now divorced from Tammy Faye Bakker). Jim Bakker and Cahn were having a “Bakers dozen” sale of Cahn’s book.

Now, November was barely a month after the no show “Mystery Shemiteh” in September, I thought to myself, can the people in the audience be any more gullible than this? So, when any remaining stocks of the book should be tossed into the recycle bin, now, instead of selling just one book at a time, Jim Bakker is telling everyone to order 13 of them at a time? Are you kidding me? My alert meter pegs out now and needless to say, I am very disappointed with Cahn. He is nothing more than a book peddler to me now more than a true preacher at this point.

So here I am, I STILL did not want to toss the Cahn man baby out with the Bakkers dozen bath water. I held back any judgement, but I have now lost interest as a viewer completely. I didn’t unsubscribe to his YouTube feed but I wasn’t watching him at all anymore. That was until a few days ago when a new video came across his feed which would be the final straw for me.

I can’t say I was surprised this past week when I saw the new video come up. Jonathan Cahn was right there sharing the table with the known apostate and arch heretic word faith con artist Kenneth Copeland. Kenneth Copeland has long been blaspheming God. Since the 1980′s this FALSE TEACHER has been saying that we are God ourselves and Jesus was born again in hell (…for the record, Jesus DID NOT go to Hell for 3 days when he died, He went to Paradise) and other heresies that only gullible Americans would buy into such as speaking into existence whatever we want from cash and groceries to lear jets and stretch limos. I wouldn’t be seen in the parking lot of a Kenneth Copeland show let alone be in the audience or share his pulpit!

A lot of Christians are asking themselves today what in the world is Jonathan Cahn thinking?

I think the answer is obvious. Did Jonathan Cahn not self proclaim himself as “The Harbinger man”? Has he not himself BECOME the Harbinger?

This is where the light went off for me the last week. This is where I had my epiphany, “The Laodecian church is here”. I thought.

HILLSONG UNITED

We now must take a long hard look at “Christian Music” these days and be honest with ourselves. Let’s start with the internationally renown Hillsong United, whose songs are played in churches world wide. Is this really worship glorifying to God? Is the congregation being directed to praise and worship God in heaven or are we looking at the stage and only being entertained, are we possibly even being seduced into something other than Biblical Christianity? Why does Hillsong United’s stage sets appear no differently than those of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, etc? One does not need to go far for multiple examples of this but here are a few to begin with.

Why are some Hillsong concerts nothing short or erotic idolatry and why do many otherwise solid churches (including Calvary Chapels) tolerate this infiltration? Here is another video exposing Hillsong United’s occultic imagery imbedded within their music.

Why is Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz hanging out with rapper and Allister Crowley follower Jay-Z and saying he is having an illuminati meeting? “Kinda Wierd” is putting it lightly.

Karl Lentz is not alone in the Hillsong United / Emerging Church movement. Hillsong’s very leader Brian Houston has also crossed the line by openly promoting “Chrislam” and claiming Muslims actually serve the same god as us.

Hillsong Church Leader Brian Houston Teaches Chrislam from Now The End Begins on Vimeo.

A day later Brian Houston quickly denied saying it but watch the video yourself. Decide for yourself if he said it or not, what he means, and if you think he is sincere or not. Everyone has their own free choice and ultimately I really don’t care what people around me believe but we all have the same evidence. Do not be so naive to believe these false teachers telling us we all serve the same God.

This is what is referred to as the “emerging church”. It is non confrontational, purpose driven, easy believe-ism and a lie from the pit of Hell.

One by one, churches all around us are falling for it.

I am genuinely and sincerely alarmed that the church as a whole is already in the latter process of being infiltrated and is now diving headlong into the “emerging church” ecumenical one world movement and am ready to rethink everything I know.

CELEBRITY EVANGELISM

These are just a few brief examples of what I am talking about when I say “celebrity evangelism”. Jonathan Cahn, Jim Bakker, Kenneth Copeland, Rick Warren, all of Hillsong United, Carl Lentz, Brian Houston etc all fall into the jet setting, limousine riding, private security, lovers of self celebrity crowd. They are just the tip of the iceberg. but this never happens at any of the good churches, right? right?

A quick way to determine if your favorite preacher (or one of their kids) is a celebrity evangelist, just take a look at their Facebook feed. And if by some chance your pastor is NOT on Facebook, you just might be in a good church! Give that man a hug this Sunday! I assure you he needs it.

So… For now, this is just a test post to see if anyone is reading. If you have come this far please leave a comment and share your thoughts.

Much Aloha   …to be continued
