Stay Away from Indoctrination and Dogma

"As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;" (Ephesians 4:14 NASB).

The Vatican and UN syncretism of world religions

(Wearing purple center) Archbishop of Canterbury (second in command of the Church of England
and Anglican Communion, after the Queen) marching with Pope Benedict XVI
and other religious leaders at the 2011 Spirit of Assisi.
I am not embarrassed to be a Christian today, even though organized religion and the acts of many "Christian leaders" throughout history---who have claimed to represent Jesus Christ---have given a bad reputation to Christianity. "For I am not ashamed of the ENTIRE GOSPEL (especially the fact that Jesus is coming back for His true church/body of believers, and then will destroy the Antichrist(s), False Prophet and Satan), for it is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes---the Jew first and also the Gentile" (Romans 1:16 NLT).

Thank God for the Constitution for the United States of America and First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and religion..."The Establishment Clause" is the first of several pronouncements in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, stating,


Congress shall make no law respecting 
an establishment of religion. . . 

"The Establishment Clause" is immediately followed by the "Free Exercise Clause," which states, 


"or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." 

These two clauses make up what are called the "Religion Clauses" of the First Amendment...Why then is the Vatican and the United Nations' Faith and Globalization Initiative involved in trying to Globally govern religion?

God does not want robots, He gives ALL people the freedom to believe in His Word, statutes, ultimate plan and promise or not.

The transfer of the Israeli capital to Jerusalem is a major problem for the Vatican, which has plans for an "international city" in Jerusalem, under the influence of the Roman Catholic Church (2 Thessalonians 2). The European Union (EU), Vatican and United Nations pressuring Israel to allow a dual State in Jerusalem is the ultimate plan of the Antichrist(s).


ALERT * ALERT * ALERT!

Under new guidelines taking effect on January 1, 2014, the European Union (EU) would require the inclusion of a clause indicating that the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights are not a part of the state of IsraelIsrael refuses to lend its signature to any future agreements which restrict EU funding to Israeli bodies that have connections to occupied territories and which would limit the country to its 1967 borders, a cabinet meeting decided.

The decision comes in response to the new European Union (EU) policy in which European assistance grants – including funds, stipends, scholarships and investments – would be restricted from Israeli entities with any direct or indirect connection to the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights.  

My job as an evangelist and a "watchman" is to warn people about God's Word and His Truth versus the lies, deception and religious myths that have been taught historically in every nation.

Obviously I am a Christian evangelist and apologetic writer. My calling has been to warn people that False "Christian" teachings and Neo-pagan worship of false gods, have impaired the Spiritual condition of over 4 billion people, if not the entire world. The Apostle Paul wrote, "But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ" (2 Corinthians 11:3 NIV).

CHRIST KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON, and His eternal Word foretold us what will happen in Matthew 24, and throughout the Old and New Testament of the Holy Bible...READ IT! 

ARE YOU IGNORANT, or AWARE about WHAT WILL HAPPEN and how God's Master Plan will be fulfilled?


Hebrews 5:12-14 (NKJV)

Spiritual Immaturity

12 "For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. 14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."

I strongly suggest that people re-learn history. I believe that once you do your own research, you will realize that religious text and catechisms did not come into existence until after the 2nd Century AD. These religious text and doctrines became adopted by various governments ONLY after Jesus and His disciples proclaimed the initial Good News to the world.

In our Christian churches today, you are only hearing part of the Gospel about Jesus Christ and God's Word. There is so much more written in the Holy Bible that explains God ultimate plan, but first the future prophecies must be fulfilled before there will be no more death, mourning or crying or pain.


Revelation 21:4-5 (NIV)
4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[a] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

Footnotes:
a. Revelation 21:4 Isaiah 25:8

Although the Hebrew texts foretell of the coming of the Messiah (Yeshua), I will not focus my writing on Judaism, because the New Testament confirms the prophecies of the Hebrew Bible, the Second Coming of Christ and His Millennial Kingdom and reign on earth (Revelation 20:1-6). 

The Good News of Christ (Acts 2), the COMING TRIBULATION and Second Coming of Jesus (Revelation 19-20) was first preached in Jerusalem at Pentecost...


Acts 2:16-20
New Living Translation (NLT)

16 No, what you see was predicted long ago by the prophet Joel:

17 ‘In the last days,’ God says,
    ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy.
    Your young men will see visions,
    and your old men will dream dreams.
18 In those days I will pour out my Spirit
    even on my servants—men and women alike—
    and they will prophesy.
19 And I will cause wonders in the heavens above
    and signs on the earth below—
    blood and fire and clouds of smoke.
20 The sun will become dark,
    and the moon will turn blood red
    before that great and glorious day of the Lord arrives.

Those who accepted the message of Peter and the Apostles were baptized, and about three thousand (3,000) were added to their number that day (Acts 2:41).

Clearly the Apostles were not the only ones who carried the message about Jesus Christ to all parts of the world. The prophecy of Joel was fulfilled (Acts 2:16-18) and all believers thereafter began to prophesy, young men are still seeing visions, and old men are still dreaming dreams from God. "Even on my servants, both men and womenI will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy (proclaim the Truth of Scripture)," says the Lord in Acts 2:18.


The followers of Jesus Christ were first called 'Christians' in Antioch, Syria, circa 43 AD.



RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY

Who is the Religious bigot---the person who takes care to clarify the ENTIRE BIBLE and can discuss religion and politics without becoming disagreeable, or the person who is intolerant toward those who hold different opinions than their own?


2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth."

Social responsibility is an ethical theory that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act to benefit the welfare of society at large. Anyone who refuses to teach the ENTIRE GOSPEL through the book of Revelation, could be guilty of involuntary manslaughter (Ezekiel 33 and 34), or at least seen by God as part of The Luke Warm Church (Revelation 3:14-22).


WHO IS SPEAKING FROM THE WORLD'S VIEWPOINT ABOUT RELIGION...

Those who teach that there will be world peace through Utopian love and U.N. peace treaties are Antichrists


1 Thessalonians 5:3-4 (ESV)

3 "While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. 4 But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief."

Prophesying today is simply teaching the ENTIRE GOSPEL, but somehow we have been tricked to believe that the GOSPEL is only the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, not the rest of the New Testament of the Holy Bible that supports the Old Testament, especially the book of Revelation.


1 John 4:1-5
New Living Translation (NLT)

Discerning False Prophets

4 Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world. 2 This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet[a] acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God. 3 But if someone claims to be a prophet and does not acknowledge the truth about Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist, which you heard is coming into the world and indeed is already here.

4 But you belong to God, my dear children. You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world. 5 Those people belong to this world, so they speak from the world’s viewpoint, and the world listens to them.

Footnotes:
4:2 Greek If a spirit; similarly in 4:3.

The world is listening to the Vatican that speaks from the the world's viewpoint about love and peace, and the Anglican Communion (monarchy of England) and Islam---that all hold the reigns on the United Nations and European Union. 

The early church doctors clarified that they were Antichrists, when they debated at the Council of Nicaea the divinity of Jesus Christ and when the Word of God became flesh. They had the Scriptures of John the Evangelist, but decided to make up their own intellectual doctrine. When the early church fathers decided that the Pope was infallible at the Council in 325 AD, and made Anathema against all Evangelical Christians as heretics, they identified themselves as Antichrists. Here we are almost 1700 years later, and the Protestant Reformation is dead, because many of our churches allowed the Jesuits to infiltrate our congregations with Counter Reformation propaganda and psychological warfare.

Then Islam came around in the 7th Century AD to copycat the Antichrist nature of the Vatican and later joined the Holy See in controlling Europe and the Middle East, and now America.

ISRAEL TODAY is both located in the Middle East and among the diaspora of God's chosen Jewish people in other countries---as well as grafted Gentiles (Romans 11). Therefore we must protect the faith, instead of turning our head to world events that suppress freedom of speech and the proclamation of God's statues (Romans 1:17-32; cf. Revelation 9:20-21) and promise as outlined in Daniel chapters 10 through 12; Galatians 4:21-31; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 and chapter 5--- as well as 2 Peter 3 (today's world condition), the book of 3rd John, Jude; Revelation 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22.


Ezekiel 33:11 (NIV)

11 "Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?’"


Please, please, please, do not scoff (2 Peter 3) at laity or anyone who prophesies the Truth of the ENTIRE GOSPEL, especially the book of Revelation and the book of Ezekiel. 

Having studied world religions, it would be socially irresponsible of me to not point out basic facts about the world's religions---and the deception of false doctrines.


THE AMALGAMATION OF WORLD RELIGIONS

Hinduism, the dominant religion of the Indian subcontinent, particularly of India, Mauritius and Nepal, hardly ever discloses to the mainstream public that one of its chief polytheistic deities is Agni---one of the most important of the Vedic gods. 

Agni is the god of fire and the acceptor of sacrifices. With Varuna and Indra, he is believed to be one of the supreme gods in the Rigveda. The link between heaven and earth, the deities and the humans, Agni is associated with Vedic sacrifice, taking offerings to the other world in his fire. His vehicle is the solar ram. Ironically, most of the world's religions that contradict or adulterate Christianity, involve the worship of the sun (Venus), moon, planets, nature and/or the carnal self (the doctrine of the Church of Satan). 


Romans 1:24-25 (NLT)

24 "So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. 25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen."

The Han Dynasty in the Second Century AD adopted the Analects of Confucius (Lun Yu). Before the Han Dynasty, Confucianist thought experienced a precipitous decline. 

After the Han Dynasty, however, China fell into chaos. During this period, Buddhism and Taoism emerged as counterparts to Confucian intellectual thought.


MYTHRAISM AND CONSTANTINE THE GREAT

The Mithraic Mysteries were a mystery religion practiced in the Roman Empire from about the 1st to 4th centuries AD. The name of the Persian god Mithra (proto-Indo-Iranian Mitra), adapted into Greek as Mithras, was linked to a new and distinctive imagery. 

Writers of the Roman Empire period referred to this mystery religion by phrases which can be Anglicized as Mysteries of Mithras or Mysteries of the Persians; modern historians refer to it as Mithraism, or sometimes Roman Mithraism.


Pope John Paul II wearing the papal "MITRE" with a sunburst
Constantine the Great (AD 272 –337) implemented the word "catholic" in AD 325 to supplant the underground Christian movement. Constantine built the palaces of the early popes and this led to the Roman Church counterfeiting Christianity and adulterating the faith with Neo-pagan practices.

Christendom refers to the medieval and early modern period, during which the Roman Empire (and later the Holy Roman Empire) represented a geopolitical power juxtaposed with both paganism and especially the military threat of the Muslim world.

Historically, the Church of the East was the widest reaching branch of "Eastern Christianity, at its height spreading from its heartland in Persian ruled Mesopotamia to the Mediterranean, India, and China.

The first organized form of Taoism, the Tianshi (Celestial Masters') school (later known as Zhengyi school), developed from the Five Pecks of Rice movement at the end of the 2nd Century AD; the latter had been founded by Zhang Daoling, who claimed that Laozi appeared to him in the year 142 AD.

The word "Shinto," a form of nature worship, is a Chinese transliteration of a phrase created in the late 6th Century AD to distinguish the native Japanese religion from its earlier Chinese influences. 


The Sun goddess emerging out of a cave, bringing sunlight back to the universe
Amaterasu is a part of the Japanese myth cycle and also a major deity of the Shinto religion. She is the goddess of the sun, but also of the universe. The name Amaterasu derived from Amateru meaning "shining in heaven." The meaning of her whole name, Amaterasu-ōmikami, is "the great august kami (Gama or god) who shines in the heaven," similar to the Roman Catholic false teaching on "Mariology" and adulteration of Jesus mother, Mary, as the "Queen of Heaven." 

Shinto Priests were officially nominated and organized by the State, and they instructed the youth in a form of Shinto theology based on the official dogma of the divinity of Japan's national origins and its Emperor. However, this propaganda did not take, and the unpopular Ministry of Rites was dissolved in the mid-1870s. Shinto was intertwined with Buddhism until 1868.  

The Byzantine Exarchate (a distance province under the Byzantine Empire) was not able to withstand the Arab conquerors of the 7th century. The first Arab assault on the Exarchate of Carthage was initiated from Egypt without much success in 647. A more protracted campaign lasted from 670 to 683. In 698, the Exarchate of Africa was finally overrun by Hassan Ibn al Numan and a force of 40,000 men, who shortly after established the new town of Tunis west of the city. Tunis grew to vastly eclipse Carthage as the major regional center, and the latter eventually fell to ruin. The destruction of the Exarchate of Africa marked a permanent end to Roman or Byzantine influence there, as the rising tide of Islam shattered the empire. The Roman Church made many treaties with the Islamic rulers during this period and this led to a relationship and bi-lateral agreements between the Roman Catholic Church and Islamic controlled nations that still exists today.

The Crusades were religious conflicts in the High Middle Ages through to the end of the Late Middle Ages conducted by Catholic Europe against Muslims, pagans, heretics, and people under the ban of excommunication. The geographic spread included the Near East, Al-Andalus, North Africa, Eastern Europe And Northern Europe. They are most popularly associated with campaigns in the Holy Land to establish control of religious sites, such as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Old City of Jerusalem, Israel, but also cover other campaigns for different religious, economic, and political reasons.

In a decree following the 1512 Diet of Cologne, the name, Holy Roman Empire, was officially changed to Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation (German: Heiliges Römisches Reich Deutscher Nation, Latin: Imperium Romanum Sacrum Nationis Germanicæ), a form first used in a document in 1474. The new title was partly adopted because the Empire had lost most of its Italian and Burgundian (Kingdom of Arles) territories by the late 15th century, but also to emphasize the new importance of the German Imperial Estates in ruling the Empire due to the Imperial Reform. However, by the end of the 18th century, the term 'Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation' had fallen out of official use.

Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה‎, literally "receiving/tradition"; also Romanised Cabala, Qabbālâ, etc. historically, emerged, after earlier forms of Jewish mysticism, in 12th- to 13th-Century AD Southern France and Spain, becoming reinterpreted in the Jewish mystical renaissance of 16th-century Ottoman Palestine. It was popularized in the form of Hasidic Judaism from the 18th century onwards.

Sikhism, or known in Punjabi as Sikhi, is a monotheistic religion founded during the 15th century in the Punjab region (a geographical region in South Asia comprising vast territories of eastern Pakistan and northern India) by Guru Nanak.

Sikhism is a form of Hinduism and Islamic Sufism (the esoteric and mystical practice and Eastern parent of Freemasonry). Sikhism has no caste system, or recognition of Hindu texts or the Qur'an. Sikhism does not require a pilgrimage to Mecca.

Regardless of the proliferation of international government State adopted religions---contrary to, or adulterating religious beliefs in Jesus Christ, most of the world's religious doctrines became popularized after the 2nd Century AD---after the Good News of Jesus Christ was preached to all nations.


1 Timothy 4:1-2 (KJV)
4 "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;"

All of the above anti-Christ religions are Pagan and/or Neo-Pagan, and have been promoted by the Roman Catholic Church and its post-Vatican II interfaith agenda to syncretize religion.

Santería, also known as La Religión, Regla de Ocha, La Regla Lucumí or Lukumi, is a syncretic religion. Santería is a system of beliefs that merges the Yorùbá religion (which was brought to the New World by West Africans) with Roman Catholicism, and may include Amerindian traditions. These Africans carried with them various religious customs, including a trance for communicating with their dead ancestors and polytheistic deities, animal sacrifice and sacred drumming and dance.

The traditional Yorùbá religion and its Santería counterpart are mainly found in Africa (notably West Africa, East Africa, and North Africa) and the Americas (notably the Caribbean), including Cuba, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Venezuela, and the United States, mainly as a result of Cuban and Puerto Rican migration.

A similar religion of Yorùbá origin called Candomblé is practiced in Brazil, along with a variety of other Afro-American religions. This is now being referred to as "parallel religiosity," because some believers worship the African variant that has no belief of a devil, yet they belong to Roman Catholic Church.



The amalgamation of religion and world politics by the Roman Catholic Church, the United Nations' Faith and Globalization Initiative and its international ambassadors, the Order of Malta (Knights of Malta), and public relations branch, the Society of Jesus aka Jesuits, has defined religious Babylon the Great.

Revelation 18:4 (KJV)
4 "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues."

The Dalai Lama said as early as 1969 that it was for the Tibetans to decide whether the institution of the Dalai Lama "should continue or not." He has given reference to a possible vote occurring in the future for all Tibetan Buddhists to decide whether they wish to recognize his rebirth.  


Tenzin Gyatso, (shortened from Jetsun Jamphel Ngawang Lobsang Yeshe Tenzin Gyatso, born Lhamo Dondrub, 6 July 1935) is the 14th and current Dalai Lama

In response to the possibility that the PRC may attempt to choose his successor, the Dalai Lama has said he will not be reborn in a country controlled by the People's Republic of China or any other country which is not free. 

According to Robert D. Kaplan, an American journalist and writer for Stratfor (geopolitical intelligence company), this could mean that "the next Dalai Lama might come from the Tibetan cultural belt that stretches across northern India, Nepal, and Bhutan, presumably making him even more pro-Indian and anti-Chinese." The Dalai Lama has enthusiastically supported the possibility that his next incarnation could be a woman.

I have given you this extensive information above to show in detail the syncretism (the amalgamation or attempted amalgamation) of different religions, cultures, and schools of thought---such as Freemasonry, Anglicanism, Catholicism, Rosicrucianism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism and Buddhism.


(Wearing purple center) Archbishop of Canterbury (second in command of the Church of England and Anglican Communion, after the Queen) marching with Pope Benedict XVI
and other religious leaders at the 2011 Spirit of Assisi.
The October 27, 2011 Spirit of Assisi brought together some 300 representatives of other religions around Pope Benedict XVI to reflect to their gods for world peace---even though world peace will not be achieved (1 Thessalonians 5:3-4) until this earth passes away and The New Jerusalem comes down from heaven (Revelation 21). I would have found new respect for the Pope, if he had taken advantage of the opportunity to recite the Apostle Paul's address to the "Men of Athens."

Thank God for the Constitution for the United States of America and First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and religion...God does not want robots, He gives ALL people the freedom to believe in Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, or not.

Catholic and Protestant is NOT the same thing as Christian. The former two are organized religions steeped in mysticism, politics, corruption and anti-Christ doctrines---the latter is a personal relationship with the One, True Son of God and Savior!


2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV)

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

If you have not formally accepted Jesus Christ, please accept the Gift of Salvation by saying this short prayer:


"Dear Jesus, I repent of my sins and the original sin of mankind, please come into my heart and change me to trust in you and build my personal relationship with you by studying your word and applying it to my life to the best of my ability.
Thank you for dying on the cross for the remission of sin.
Thank you for conquering death with your resurrection.
I accept you Jesus as my Lord and Savior, please lead me and guide me. Amen!
"

If you have said that short prayer, I welcome you to the True Body of Christ (not a sect or religious denomination). 

Please get into a Bible-based church where the Word of God is taught unadulterated and reject the Tradition(s) of men. Pray, meditate upon God's Word and trust Jesus that He will guide you with His Spirit.


Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) 
"And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."
John 8:31-32 (ESV) 

The Truth Will Set You Free

"31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, 
and the truth will set you free.”

Once you know you have found the simplicity of a sole relationship with Jesus Christ, you may be inspired to teach others (Matthew 28:19-20 KJV).


2 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
16 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”


Godspeed, Truth and Love,

Brother David Johnson, XU
