The prophetic end of the age is likely to occur around 2030 AD.

I personally think we have about 20 years left before we complete the prophetic end of the age and enter the millennial reign of Jesus. If that is true, I think many things must happen in the next twenty years, so be very careful about what you buy into. If my timing is correct, and Jesus comes for the faithful Church prior to the tribulation, then at most there is ten to fifteen years left to work before the Rapture. If we are that close to the second coming, then the stage for some of the end time prophetic events should already be observable in the world.

For example, we should be able to observe that Israel is back in the land surrounded by enemies; we should see a powerful nation far north of Israel with the military capabilities to fulfill the Gog prophecy in Ezekiel 38 and 39; we should see nations rising in the Far East that will be able to field the 200 million horsemen army from the East foretold in Revelation 9:16; we should see a group of nations on its way to becoming a world power in the area of the old Roman Empire; we should see technology and communications that will make it possible so that no one can buy or sell without the biometric 666 identification of Rev 13:17; we should also see the rise of apostasy and see a world harlot religious system forming like is symbolized in Revelation 17.

Today Israel is surrounded by Arab enemies and Islam is consolidating against Israel. Putin in far north Russia just announced a ten-year plan to build a modern military and he also intends to form a new soviet-like union. China and India will peak in population with those of military age in the next 20 years and nobody doubts that they will become military and economic superpowers. (Beyond 2030-2040 the Far East will go into depression and decline due to the realities of aborted children and resultant demographics.) Revelation makes it very clear that this huge army was prepared for a specific point in time and we can see the makings of that army forming now. By 2030 there will be a hundred million surplus men in the Far East that will have little chance of a normal family life and they will become expendable. The EU is a rising fascist beast that is increasingly gaining control over once sovereign nations of Europe. It certainly looks like the EU or some spin-off from it will fulfill the revival of the Roman Empire that was foretold in Daniel and Revelation. Computer devices and projected Internet satellite systems will make the Revelation 666 buy and sell system over all people on earth technically possibly within 10 to 15 years. We can also see the Harlot of Revelation 17 coming together through “all paths” theology and we can see Vatican efforts to try to put world religion under their authority.

Everything seems to be on schedule. Therefore, if I have it correct, the start of the final week of years foretold by Daniel would be due to begin around the mid 2020’s. If that is true, all the players I mentioned above must continue to steadily progress so they can fulfill their respective roles in Bible prophecy near that time.

I think Christians that believe in premillennial theology and that are watching should be able to see all the signs shaping up for a fulfillment in our generation. There are of course the overly exuberant among us that tend to want to rush things and force fit things to happen before the time. Nevertheless, all will happen on schedule.

Nobody should be dogmatic about the timings but they should be aware that the complete fulfillment of these prophecies as written within the light of present world realities will still take some years to play out. Events can happen that will speed up these prophetic events or slow them down but there is an observable trend and from that trend we can make reasonable projections of where we are within God’s prophetic plan. Those aware of world events and Bible prophecy should know the general season of the Lord’s return and Paul said that we would (1Th 5:4).

If we are that close to the end, one of the great mysteries is why America is not in Bible prophecy. However, at the speed that America is blindly heading toward the cliff, I think we can surmise that the demise of America as a world superpower is not very far off.

The major  military events described in the prophetic scriptures are rather obvious, so they are fairly easy to track, but religious events are somewhat more difficult. Some want to make Islam the Harlot or the Beast of Revelation, but that is not likely. Islam came out of Christianity and she certainly is a daughter of the Harlot but the Papal System became the Harlot when the Babylonian Priesthood was incorporated into the Roman religious system. Protestantism has traditionally taught that the Roman Catholic Church is the Harlot of Revelation chapter 17 and I have no reason to now think otherwise. Little in the Roman religious system has changed for the better and the doctrine of papal infallibility now makes real change impossible. (I am not saying that the pagan daughters and sisters of this Roman Harlot will not be joining with her in the last days.) Here is a sample of Babylonian priesthood, pagan, and man-made practices that evolved in the Roman Catholic Religion.·                 

·                 Prayers for the dead

·                 Adoration of saints and angels

·                 Worship of Mary with child

·                 The Mass

·                 Priests dressing in clothing similar to pagan priests

·                 Extreme unction

·                 Doctrine of a Purgatory

·                 Worship in Latin

·                 Prayers directed to Mary instead of to God

·                 The Pope as the vicar of Christ

·                 Holy images and relics

·                 Use of holy water to bless someone or something

·                 The canonization of dead saints

·                 The celibacy of the priesthood

·                 Using prayer beads (rosary)

·                 The inquisitions

·                 The sale of Indulgences

·                 Transubstantiation

·                 Adoration of the wafer·                 

·                 Doctrine of purgatory decreed

·                 Doctrine of seven sacraments affirmed

·                 Jesuit order was founded to enforce papal authority

·                 Tradition was granted equal authority with the Bible

·                 Apocryphal books were added to the Holy Canon

·                 Immaculate Conception of Mary declared

·                 Infallibility of Pope declared

·                 Assumption of the Virgin Mary was declared

·                 Mary proclaimed the Mother of the Church

* Most of the bullets have been modified from Tim Lahaye s – Revelation Illustrated And Made Plain – 1977, p44. Lahaye adds dates and some additional practices that I have chosen not to list here.

The big questions that remains is how does this religious harlot come to its fulfillment as said in Revelation 17 in just a decade or so and just how does the religious Harlot ride in the Beast of Revelation?

There are some possibilities that you might not have even considered. Do you realize that Rick Santorum believes and practices all the stuff that I listed above. He is not a nominal Catholic. He is a fervent Roman Catholic and a Knight of Malta from the old school. He even attends Latin Masses. His allegiance therefore, is first going to be to the Pope.

Newt Gingrich also converted to Catholicism but I think Gingrich just caught on to the black light that the Roman Church is the bandwagon that he needs to ride. Anyway, Gingrich says that he finally converted to Catholicism when he saw the majesty around the Pope and became enlightened. Just before this happened, the former prime minister of the UK, Tony Blair, converted to Catholicism and he started his Interfaith foundation. Rick Warren sits on his board and both Warren and Gingrich are members of the good-old-boy globalist think tank called the CFR. So we can assume that besides working for religious pluralism they are also both working toward globalism.

It seems that the goal of Blair’s Interfaith Foundation is to find common ground so people of faith can realize that all believers in a Creator are “catholic” (catholic means universal) because there is only one Creator. This universal all paths to the same God religion is supposed to bring good will, unity and the end of wars. Of course all would have to agree that the Pope of the Universal Church (catholic) speaks for God on earth. The Vatican will never compromise on that position.

Roman Catholicism tolerates almost anything as long as people venerate the Pope. Rome says nothing when Catholics do not even follow the teachings of the Roman Church with their promiscuity, contraception, abortion etc., in the West and where Catholicism mixes with native pagan religions in Latin America and Africa. However, they do attack evangelicals that will not submit to the Pope. That is because their agenda is not about spreading the gospel of salvation or about morality, it is about the Roman Church with its Pope having all the authority of Christ on earth.

When you consider that the Vatican is the most powerful religious entity in the world with their secret societies and influences in the UN and in global think tanks and universities, when you consider the Jesuits and Knights of Malta are all sworn to defeat the enemies of the Pope and bring Protestantism back under Rome, when you consider that the Pope kisses the Qur’an as a Holy Book and has hobnobbed with the Eastern Pope called the Dalai Lama, when you consider that Protestant seminaries have been infiltrated by Jesuits and they are now pumping out disciples, when you consider that there is a fast growing movement in Protestantism where young leaders are leading people toward post modern redefining of the scriptures, mysticism, feeling God, dominionism illusions, pagan contemplative prayer and occult psychological techniques we should see that the world is heading toward a universal Harlot religion.

I believe two major religious revolutions will take place before the end of the age. I think we are very near the first revolution. This is when the religious Harlot rebels against the secular humanism of the West that is now pushing the Marxist worldview on the West and the Islamic Fascist worldview on Muslims.

The next revolution after that will be a counter-revolution. The whole world will rapidly grow to hate the religious Harlot. Revelation 17:16  says the Harlot will be hated by the ten kings that give their power to the Beast and they will burn the Harlot with fire.

Therefore, if all these things are to happen within the next two decades, events need to start playing out very soon. I think the coming world war will bring about the first revolution. I see that happening within a couple of years. It will set up the dire conditions for people to be looking for some intervention from God in order to achieve world peace. I think this will come from Marian deceptions and that will help unite world religions under Roman religious universalism.

Keep in mind that many in and outside of Catholicism believe the 900 year old St. Malachy prophecy that gives a short statement about 112  future Popes. Supposedly we are now on the 111th Pope, so if the prophecy is valid there is only one more Pope before the end and Rome will be destroyed at the end of his reign. This is the way the prophecy reads in English.

112 Peter the Roman, who will nourish the sheep in many tribulations; when they are finished, the city of seven hills will be destroyed, and the dreadful judge will judge his people. The end.

The counter-revolution against universal religion will not take long. The Harlot will not solve the world’s problems and people of the world will find the world religious Harlot oppressive. People will then turn toward unstructured spiritualism which will make the rise of the Beast from the pit fitting. Perhaps the straw that will break the religious camel’s back will be the two Jewish prophets that have the power to torment the earth as often as they wish. The two prophets will enforce the Law, so to speak. When they are killed by the Beast that comes out of the pit the whole world will rejoice and throw a party. They will rejoice because they will think that they have arrived to the lawless kingdom led by the god that came out of the pit where everyone can sin without any consequences.

Keep in mind that if the Antichrist is ruling around 2030, that this burning of the religious Harlot takes place in the mid to late 2020’s. It is not that far off. All this has to happen in just two decades so hold on to your seat. The Woman Harlot that rides on the Beast sits fat and happy in the first half of the seven-year period but the burning of the Harlot occurs in the last half of the seven years.

Let me say a little more about our two Roman Catholic presidential contenders because if Rome is to rise it is likely to get help from world leaders. I am not saying that people like Santorum and Gingrich are not sincere and that they do not love America or that you should not vote for them because they are Catholic. I just want you to be aware of the times that we live in and see the possibilities.

Newt Gingrich said he converted to Catholicism after seeing the majesty of the Pope. On the other hand, Rick Santorum has always been a fervent Roman Catholic and is in the Catholic order of the Knights of Malta. He is a true believer that Roman Catholicism is the only true Church and he believes that the Pope has all authority from Christ on earth. I was a Catholic, so I know about these fervent believers. Unlike about 98 percent of Catholics these people actually do follow the teachings of their church to the letter and sometimes beyond. They are into scapulars, the rosary, Latin masses, Maryology and dead saint intercession and all Catholic religiosity.

Rick Santorum is quite aware of the roots of the Western cultural demise and his answer to that is a return to traditional Roman Catholic values. He has just said that mainstream Protestant Christianity is lost (it is). He did not mention the Protestant Evangelicals because he probably thinks that they will be returning back to Rome.

Did you know that there are thousands of fervent Roman Catholics now praying the Rosary for Rick Santorum all over the world? In case you do not know, saying the the Rosary is pretty much saying the same rote prayer over and over where Catholics are asking Mary to pray for us sinners. Rote prayer like this is nothing but witchcraft and Jesus said not to pray like the heathen that think they will be heard from their many words. Jesus also made it clear that we are to pray only to God.

It is interesting that many Evangelical Protestant leaders are lining up behind Sanatorium and Gingrich. They are not just doing it because Evangelicals and fervent Roman Catholics have common moral values (as do Mormons). Unfortunately, many are doing it as if they believe that Roman Catholicism is Christian. I guess they forgot or ignore the anathemas that the Roman Church has made against all Protestants.  They forget about the thousands of  saints that the Roman Church killed because they would not renounce that salvation comes by grace through faith alone instead of allegiance and obedience to the Roman Church and its Pope. Read again the above Babylonian practices in the Roman Catholic Church and tell me how this Roman religion is the gospel once given by which men must be saved? Roman Catholic doctrine is a different gospel. Paul warned us about this, but who among the New Evangelicals are even reading scripture anymore?

Unfortunately, some Evangelical leaders have come to accept the heresy of pluralism and universalism whether they will admit it or not. Actions speak louder than words. Many now think that anyone that claims to be a Christian is a Christian even if these people have a different path to salvation than the one given in the Bible. Thus, many Evangelicals are now embracing Mormons and Catholics as Christians. Some even think Muslims are saved. I am not saying that Catholics cannot be true Christians but they do not become true Christians through following the heretical doctrines of the Roman Church they attend.

Many Evangelical leaders have lost their minds. Perhaps they never even put on the mind of Christ. They have become blind teachers of the blind and that is exactly why all the latest paths of the New Evangelicals lead Christianity to religious pluralism, universalism, mysticism and back toward Rome.

If we are as near to the prophetic end of the age as I believe, somehow Roman Catholicism has to come back to being the head of world religion. It probably has to happen within 15 years. We see a big push coming from the New Evangelicals with their emergent and contemplative mysticism influences. They are moving young people toward Rome. However, I do not see anything today coming through religion that will make this conversion happen that fast. There will have to be other influences. I can see the possibility of powerful secular Catholic leaders pushing the world toward Catholic dominionism but that could only happen during or after a dire crisis like a world war.

Something radical must soon happen to make the world accept the Harlot as the authority of God on earth. I suggest that there will be a major world war. We have had foreshadows in the past. Some claimed visions from Mary in the other world wars. Millions were praying the Rosary thinking that saying the Rosary was the answer to world peace. I think the next world war will bring much the same things on steroids. Keep in mind that the third most respected person among Muslim woman is Mary and in Eastern religions the Queen of Heaven is a god. Arguably Mary is even more respected than Jesus in the Roman Catholic Church. Many Catholic mystics think world peace will come through the intercession of Mary.

World peace may come through the Harlot, but it will not last long because the Harlot is then burned by the Beast that she rides (Rev 17).

Also, watch for the Eucharistic Christ heresy to continue to spread into Protestantism. I already see plenty of mysticism taking place in the protestant communion service. It is not as big a jump as you might think from believing that Christ is “uniquely present” at your communion service to believing that Christ is actually in the wafer.

The main point is to watch, because the prophetic end of the age is not so far off in the future that we cannot observe that the stage is being set up for end time events right now.

  1. Well Don,

    Since I’ve been coming to your blog here, I have to say that this article is your absolute best work.

    Very well done Sir.

    Also, I didn’t know that in Islam, “the third most respected person in Islam is Mary”. I’ll have to learn more about that.

    Thank you Don, much to ponder here.

  2. Thanks ~David

    I think I should have said that Mary is the third most respected person in Islam among Muslim women. Anyway, that’s what I heard somewhere but I can’t recall the source. I just correct the article to read that way.

  3. Don

    This article is concise, extremely Biblical and therefore practical. I will download it with your permission, to use (with acknowledgements) when the opportunity arises, because as these things start to impact the world that opportunity will arise.

    The enemy will not like you when this happens and even now I pray for you and yours, and your continuing ministry.

    With love and respect
    Brian

  4. Keep your wicks trimmed and lamps topped up with oil brothers and sisters!

    BTW: Don as I mentioned in another post. I spoke with my Catholic sister the other day. And as always I try to mention scriptural truths to her. Once again I told her that Jesus Himself said, that in order to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven one (she) must be born again (of the spirit) I again told her… Look to Jesus alone!
    I spoke with her for over half an hour in this. She just has no idea. AND…No desire to go SEARCH the scriptures for herself! Goes to mass hands over some cash and back home. Rinse and repeat. It’s in my heart to keep trying… its all I can do.

  5. Al,

    I have an idea, why don’t you have your Catholic sister read this article ?…and after her head spins around a couple times and she spits up the pea soup, maybe after thinking about it, she might just get it :)

  6. Hello Don,

    Enjoyed the article. I thought I read somewhere that between India and China, there is available 100 million or more males to field an army. Also, do the “armies of the East” include Korea? If so, theres another 50 million or so.

  7. Don, once again you spur me on to continue to fight the good fight.

    Al you are doing the right thing. You can’t make the choice for her but your prayers and using God’s word are the correct weapons of our warefare so do not grew faint or weary in using them.

    As I have told many that Birth Pains means increasing in frequency and intensity. So if anyone is looking for some return to normal they are deluded. There is only one option and that is we need to double our efforts to get fellow Christians and the Body of Christ to prepared for battle. I’m thankful that in the church I go to our Pastor is very keen on this and the leadership are starting to grasp it. We can no longer afford to place the burden of spirituallity on “the Pastor” as we are all responsible to fight the good fight. We have too long milk fed the anemic masses and thus are in many ways as much ignorant of scripture and passionless for Christ as many Catholics. As Al said,, rinse and repeat. We are just as guilty, but I again I’m thankful for God’s mercy and the work he is doing in our little church and I look forward to finally being apart of something that not only preaches a Holy life, but also walks, talks and trains others to reach the same goal.
    It doesn’t matter how this Harlot comes into being even if as some mormon god mystic Pope follower, but it matters how much we prepare the Body of Christ to be able to discern all these false prophets and angels so that we will not fall victim to their deception. We can no longer just sit in a pew and we can’t just hide in some closet.
    The Truth of God’s word sets us Free, it teaches us, proves things, rebukes, corrects, trains etc etc etc.
    Don’t know if this is off topic, but to me when someone brings up the limited time frame we have and the tsunami wave of spiritual Lies that are mounting I just get rev’d up about getting back to building that spiritual Ark. The Flood is coming and we have got to get back to work.
    For me once again Isiah 58 has become a focus and prayer of mine and I pray that everyone here will be just as motivated to break the yoke and restore the paths.
    Stay strong.
    God Bless.

  8. Don ,
    Agree with David , this article is superb work. It is hard for me to understand why people are too lazy to read The Bible for themselves. I believe nothing anyone says UNTIL I check it with
    The Bible . BLESSINGS!!!!!!!!!!!
    Hello David , hope all is well with you!!!!

  9. Don,

    I think your forecast timetable is right on but it sure is depressing that the rapture is still 10 to 15 years from now. I wanna go home.

  10. Hi Don Fritts,

    Always good to read your comments :)

    Mr Fritts, I do not believe that it is always a case of people being too lazy to read the Bible.

    I, myself, lack the understanding and knowledge to just sit down and read the Bible and understand all what I’m reading.

    It is only because of teachers like Pastor Chuck Smith, Don Koenig, Chuck Missler, etc. whom I use their study materials and articles to make it possible for me to understand many facets of the Bible that I otherwise wouldn’t have a clue about.

    I do agree, “check it with The Bible”, that if it isn’t in The Bible…or is contrary to The Bible, than it’s not worthy.

  11. James,

    The Rapture does not have to be as long as 10 to 15 years away. The Rapture is always imminent it could occurs some time before the final seven years. I was just saying that if my second coming projection is correct and the Rapture is pre-trib then the Rapture is not likely to be more than 10 or 15 years from now.

    Rod,

    I believe you are talking about the amount of surplus men due to one child policies and Asians preferring a male child and therefore aborting the females. I can see where just the surplus men of military age in all nations East of the Euphrates could add up to 200 million by 2030.

    Brian and all others,
    Thanks.
    My articles can be downloaded for others without prior permission. All I ask is that if people repost my articles on other Internet sites that they include a link to where they got it.

  12. Don:

    What can we all say…you’re observations are succinct and right in line with scripture and the times. I have to admit, I am one of those that get a bit exuberant about the rapture and hoping for it today, as we all should to a degree, but we do have to look at things through the lense of what is happening about us in the world scene and objectively line that up with the word to get an accurate prophetic timeline. I want to thank you Don for always keeping your head screwed on tightly as you declare the supernatural truths of God’s word. I am copying this article and saving it to my document folder so I can have it for future reference for study and for sharing to help others see the truth and the closeness with which we find ourselves to the end in hopes that some others may be awakened and some saved. Thanks again for all you do as a watchman, it means more than you can ever imagine. God bless always, you and yours. Amen!

  13. Don,

    To have an army that large toward the end of the 7 year tribulation, after the many judgements that take out a sizeable chunk of the population… The would require a considerable surplus in the East.

    Things are certainly heating up, but I agree with you very much, there are still alot of things that must be in place before the end happens.

    Rod

  14. Don, I agree with your post; but I maintain that Santorum is the best of a bad bunch.

    Since this Satan hub bub (I agreed with Rick’ statement on that) and now that the general all around Santorum media scrutiny (including the exaggerations) has begun to take place… and this after he was leading in almost All national Polls… I will be watching to see JUST how malleable (in the media’s hands) many so called Christian Conservatives are?

  15. Al,

    No doubt, Santorum is the only real conservative in the bunch and his conservative views are based on his unwavering moral positions. Of course that will drive the GOP establishment and the liberals nuts so it is going to be very difficult to get such a man elected.

    I don’t even make him part of a bad bunch even if I can see where Catholic leaders like him could be instrumental in leading the world back under Roman Church influence during a bloody world war against Islam.

    If we are near the time it has to happen somehow, and like I said the cry for world peace and demonic deceptions will be more influential on the world population than Catholic secular leaders.

  16. Sometimes i just cant beleive we can really be so close to the 2nd coming. it almost seems too good to be true. I tend to think this will take a few decades longer to all play out but whether its 20 years or 50 years its still really close. All the peices are set up ( besides certain technological accomplishments) all thats needed is an event to trigger all this.

  17. Reflection on Jim’s comment: Yes – all the pieces seem to be set up. It makes me wonder if Psalm 83 could be a trigger event.

    If I remember, Rick Joyner is also a member of Knights of Malta. I wonder how many other NAR and Elijah List followers are?

  18. I have to agree with James that your timetable seems reasonable. I tend to believe the biggest sign of several years still before the trib is the building of Babylon. Babylon is already about 500,000 ( Al Hillah) in population that I can tell but it looks like it is a run down city. I have seen how the Chinese built a 30 story building in 30 days, so it could grow faster than one would think, but I think we are still looking at several years. I am looking for progress to start being made on it. The it could be about 15 years before it is ready for the AntiChrist at the mid point of the trib.

    I also agree that the Rapture is imminent but I also tend to think it is probably less than 5 years ahead of the trib, so I tend to think we probably have 10 to 15 years before the Rapture. And like James, I find it depressing that we may have to wait that long. I am ready to meet the Lord and for Him to reign.

  19. don what do you think about dr.owuor, i watched his videos and people are saying that he a true prophet of god please check him out and tell me if he is true to god or not. his site is repentandpreparetheway.com

  20. to all,

    I think we need to keep persepective here as I emailed this article out to friends and family reminding them of the urgency before us as time is growing short. We need to have the same spirit as our Lord.
    2Pe 3:9 ¶ The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.(NASB)

    These events need to spur us onto greater efforts to do the Lord’s work. It should be like cold water in our faces that clears our heads of our sad materialistic, “serve me” lives.

    I find it scary, unpredictable, risky, awesome, exciting but not depressing. I find in this the anticipation of a greater hope and joy of looking to excperiencing the power of God as did the disciples. That He would move amongst us that as the world grows dark people out there will see us as a light. That God will do a work in us so that we may have the chance to be like the disciples and display God’s power in bringing healing to lives physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentaly. I desire the chance to fight the good fight like never before. People out there area searching for answers, for understanding because they have not been taught to read and study their bible. They have walked away from God and from ‘church’ and they have wandered into emptiness and they need to be found.
    Who are these signs for? They are for us. They are a warning to those of us who understand and we need to repent and get serious about following the Lord Jesus.
    Look at the last letter to the Churches.
    Revelation 3:14-22 NASB 14 “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: 15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot. 16 ‘So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. 17 ‘Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. 19 ‘Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent. 20 ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with Me. 21 ‘He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'”

    This is our warning to Seize the day!!!

    Ephesians 5:15-16 NASB 15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

  21. Jason,

    UGGGH!
    I should not have to tell true Christians about false prophets they should be obvious to any Christian with any knowledge of scriptures or any spiritual discernment from God at all. Find new people to talk to because the ones that are telling you that Owuor is a true prophet of God are lap dogs that just like to get their ears itched.

  22. Hi Bob From Texas,

    Thank you for pointing that out about Calvary Chapel, I didn’t know the status of Boykin in the Knights of Malta.

    I have heard Boykin speak at CC and thought he was great, but obviously, there was more than I knew.

    Another reason why Don’s blog is a great wake up call.

  23. Don-

    As a former Roman Catholic (I received Christ as Savior in 1978), all I can say is RIGHT ON! Many in my family are still Roman Catholics so I’m not a “Catholic Hater.” In my pre-conversion days, I was encouraged by a believer to start reading the Bible. When I did, I started to see that much of what I had believed as a Catholic did not jive with the clear teachings of scripture. In particular, I saw that veneration of Mary to God-like status clearly contradicted the humble saint portrayed in LUKE. When I was saved,I turned to the Living Christ and away from all that falsehood. I was blessed and to this day, I have a hard time believing I was ever a Catholic. Even though I was devout, it all seems like a dream now.

    More commentaries like yours are needed to point out the dangers of embracing the pernicious corruption of scripture-based Christianity. You’re right, many evangelical leaders (and church members) have lost their minds and millions will spend eternity separated from God because we didn’t warn them about trusting this evil system rather than the Lord Jesus Christ.

    As you can tell, I’m quite passionate about this. :)

    God bless you and keep up the good work!

    Sincerely,

  24. Thanks Chris,

    There are a number of former Catholics on this blog (including me) that will say much the same thing. It is tragic that many evangelicals today think that this Roman Harlot leads people to salvation.

  25. Why yes Al, of course, how are you?
    LOL
    No jut kidding we don’t each other. I just had to do that for all our Southern friends. Which I’m sure thanks to Google maps or mapquest etc is not so prevelent anymore. Still funny though. I am pleased, however, to see a fellow Canadian on this forum and I appreciate your comments.

    I reside in central Saskatchewan, about 2 hrs North East of Saskatoon.

  26. Good to know you David. I enjoy your comments as well.
    Have you seen any Polar bears trekking around your neighbour hood – especially considering the time of year. 😀 We’ve spotted a few down our neck of the woods. :smile:

    God Bless!

  27. LOL, no polar bears. I was going to joke about how the sled dogs keep them away, lol. We do get deer strolling down the street early in the morning.

    I just have to say I really enjoy and appreciate a site like this. It really keeps one on their toes as even I have been unfamilair with terms like Dominonism, or the Eucharistic Christ heresy, etc. and it is good to have a place that can give a “heads up”. Even more so it encourages me as still many times I feel that besides our pastors there are just too few out there who care to discuss such things and it makes one feel very much alone. Kinda like Elijah and it is just so uplifting to know that we are not along in our desire to whole heartedly serve God and discuss more meatier topics.

    Even without the false religions and herisies I find that even we in Evangelical churches have over time accepted traditional practices or cultural stances giving them a status equal to biblical commands. It is a discussion that my Dad and I have many time as we both are involved in our churches and we respectfully challenge such practicies. Why is this? It is just what Don and many of you have said we have for generations slowly given up the practice of searching the scriptures. Pastors have become the central church figure. Elders boards are no longer spiritual leaders who must qualify to hold the position. Church has become a milk buffet with musical accompaniment. Yes in some ways those are harsh statements, but I do not believe them to be inaccurate.

    I am thankful to God for the changes in our church to become more focused on training. We have recently hired a man who is leading us in the Faith@Home http://www.faithathome.ca/ strategies to equip families to be biblical teaching homes as Deut 6 teaches. We have implemented a Elders qualification policy that aligns with Biblical principles on Eldership. Things are taking shape but it is not without some stuggle and opposing opinions.

    Again I hope I’m not too off topic as for me when we bring up topics that discuss the shortness of time and false religions it spurrs me to focus on making the most of the time and desiring to encourage us all that we can still work to improve the focus of the Body of Christ where ever we are.

    God Bless and thank you all for encouraging people like me to keep fighting the good fight.

  28. Thank you Don, as an ex Catholic I can certainly agree with everything you say. My family disowned me when I married a protestant, it has only been in the last few years that we have been able to talk again, however when the topic of Mary comes up they are firm in their commitment to the rosary and praying to Mary. One of the first things the Lord showed me was the error in the teaching of the Catholic Church, with the things you mention. I pray that in these last days I have to courage to stand up for Christ, it may not look like it now but times are coming that will be make the depression and the former persecutions look like Sunday School picnics. With all the new age stuff, and now this new Messianic teaching it is going to take a lot of prayer to stay on the stright and narrow path. Keep this web sit open, many will read and see.

  29. “Infallibility of Pope declared”

    Don, I just want to point out that Papal infallibility doesn’t mean that the Pope himself is sinless and can do no wrong in his personal life…in his daily walk. As you know he himself submits to confession on a regular basis, either to a Cardinal, Bishop or a Jesuit Priest …I believe . If I am not mistaken from what I know of it (infallibility) it means that any new decree or announcement , anything (message) that is supposedly God’s word to us through the Pope – this “message” given to the Pope, supposedly divinely inspired through the Holy Spirit… THAT is what is supposed to be infallible. Same principal as Moses’ 5 books (Torah – word of God) are infallible… Which Moses wrote down as He was inspired to do by God. Moses Himself was obviously fallible.

    This is not to say that I accept the Pope’ “word” now. . No. As you know I am not Catholic.
    BUT we need to be accurate in how we present things in case we are challenged by someone and made to look badly informed. In the end the Pope (if he wants to be a prophet of God) MUST show the sign of the Prophet – I don’t know of any Pope that has ever shown this signs of a true prophet. Of God – but apart from that the RCC doctrine is corrupt. So nay “signs” would not hold water anyway.

  30. Al,

    Why do you keep looking for things to get discussions on something that really has noting to do with the point of the articles? I gave the reference for the man-made and Babylonian adopted doctrines. You can argue issues that he or I never brought up with him.

    All the points listed in the article are doctrines in the Catholic Church but a paper can be written on the fine points of each doctrine. I am not going to be explaining each doctrine in this article. The real point that I wanted to make was made.

  31. Once again, I apologize Don. I thought I was bringing something useful to this thread. Some insight on a specific bullet. I did not meant to take the post off topic.

  32. Erin,

    I deleted your comment. I do not allow the cutting and pasting of entire articles within this comments section. If you want people to read an article provide a link. Just copying articles and posting them elsewhere is copyright infringement.

    For your information, I like the Rapture Ready website and Terry James. What I think is a big waste of time is the BB forum threads there where people keep telling each other that the Rapture has to happen within a year or two. It does does not.

  33. Don,

    I do like your approach.. Be watchful, but not obsessed with the end times events. Jesus is very clear about living each day for today. I read the articles and news feed on RR, but not the BB. I’m still hoping for a better GOP option by election day. But will probably be dissapointed.

  34. Good post, Don. So refreshing to read. You sincerely inspire me to open my Bible and actually read it rather than just watching Joel Osteen or something.

    Rod in Oregon: agreed, sir.

    Anyone ever meet or know someone who is currently not a Christian, but says he or she was raised Catholic? I’ve met quite a few. I forgive them as long as they say ten hail mary’s and five obama’s.

  35. Al – I just wanted to say that I appreciated your insight into Papal infallibility. I am not Catholic and don’t know much about it, so your comment was interesting to me. I need to understand other religions better in order to better defend my faith.

  36. When you say that Roman Catholicism will come back to being the head of world religion does that mean that the majority of people on earth will be considered Catholic? Do you believe, because of the pagan influence in Roman Catholicism, that it will be a Satanic influence? I know very little about the Catholic faith, as I was raised in the Baptist faith.

  37. Deborah, I doubt if most of world harlot will call itself Catholic in the end times. It will more likely call itself something like The “Universal people of Faith”. Catholic just means universal anyway. I do think the government of the Harlot will be in the Vatican.

    All false religion has Satanic influence.

  38. Don – I don’t know your stance on recommending other people, but for Deborah I would recommend checking out the Worldview Weekend website. I don’t know much about Catholicism either, but Brannon Howse and Chris Pinto do and I learned a lot on this subject yesterday at a rally. There is a lot more to understand, but it seems to me that their position is similar to Don’s.

    I have always been very impressed with Worldview Weekend. Also, just because I was really impressed with him, Justin Peters spoke yesterday also about the Word do Faith movement. He did a great job and I learned a lot about that movement also.

    I hope these resources help you Deborah.

    Thank you.

  39. Do not commit the same mistake of others.
    The day and the hour only the Father knows, nor the Son, nor the angels.
    Read carefully the new testament and the same Jesus, our Lord, said that it will happen many wars…. and so. so…..
    and that when people think there is peace, the end will arrive…
    So, I really like your posts but in this topic you are outside the Gospel.
    Att. Carolina.

  40. Carolina,

    I said LIKELY and I give my reasons why it is likely around that period. You can say we will not know the general time of the end, but scripture says that believers are not in darkness that this day would come upon them like a thief.

    Just because Jesus said nobody knows the day and the hour does not mean that we cannot discern the season. So I do not think I am outside the Gospel at all by saying the end of the age is due to end around 2030 AD. I wonder why their are all the commands given to watch if nobody can watch?

  41. Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.

    Mathew 16

  42. I went looking for this article with the announced resignation of the Pope this morning. Being a “Nancy Drew” for most of my life I have read of Fatima and St. Malachy and being raised a Presbyterian I have always been more curious than believing in anything Catholic. It is great to have the points you have listed to remind that religion is of man and faith in Christ alone is our salvation. Ultimately we need to land in a church that follows the convictions made in the Bible and that we know to be true so this prompting of timely discernment has been good for me and I hope others will go over this article again.

  43. Hi Ohio Julie,

    I heard the news on Pope Benedict while I was out today…and the first thing that came to my mind is, will the next Pope be “Peter The Roman”.

    I don’t know a lot about Malachy’s prophecies but it is my understanding that he has been fairly accurate at predicting Pope’s…whether they are self-fulfilling or not, it is fascinating.

    Also, from what I understand, Pope Benedict is the first Pope to “step down” in about 600 years.

    Perhaps Don or some readers could elaborate more.

  44. Hi David, fascinating is a good word. It will be interesting to see what really does unfold and the timeline for it. One thing for sure though, unless the guy is really young and they usually aren’t, their reign goes along with Don’s timeline. I think Benedict set the pace of the NWO for the church so it will be interesting to see how that unfolds as well. Hopefully I will be watching the whole Harlot thing from heaven. Do you think we will take our memories with us?

    Don, I look forward to anything thoughts you might add to the current event.

  45. Hi Ohio Julie,

    I think we will take our memories with us, but not in the finite sense we think of it today…I think we’ll be taking on more of the Mind Of God in our presence in Heaven with The Lord which is more of an infinite mindset.

    I think what that really means is something we can’t even fathom while in our current finite perspective.

    I, too, hope to be sitting at Jesus Feet and worshiping Him when things get messy with the Harlot.

  46. First & foremost “”The rapture”” will occur after the tribulation.(Mathew 24:29-31.Second occurrence will be “The end of age” after the 1000 years.Revelation 20:4-10.Blessed reading. Brothers in Jesus.

  47. Josaia,

    Mathew 24:29-31 is not talking about the Rapture of the Church. That passage is talking about the Lord’s second coming in glory with His angels and His saints. Those gathered by the angels are the elect that survive the great tribulation. They will attend the wedding feast. The Church is taken some years sooner. The marriage takes place in Heaven before the Lord comes with His bride as King of Kings. Your interpretation of the Rapture does not explain and also contradicts many other Bible passages that clearly makes the Rapture and the coming in glory separate events.

    This article explains some of the arguments. Fair warning. They will not be argued here.
