Dear ,

Our new video about stopping anti-Israel hatred

We have produced a short but punchy new video exposing and calling for an end to anti-Israel hatred:

Please watch it and share it as widely as possible with your friends and family and on Twitter and Facebook.

Registration for We Believe in Israel Conference opens next week

Watch out for next week’s email – we will be launching the delegate registration website for the We Believe in Israel Conference, which is happening in London on 22 March 2015.

We hope you will be one of the 1500 delegates to attend the UK’s largest pro-Israel conference – make sure you register as soon as you get the email next week in order to secure your place.

Briefing on the clashes with Hezbollah

Here is the latest BICOM briefing on the clashes on Israel’s Golan border:

  • The recent violence across the Israeli-Syrian ceasefire lines has been triggered by Hezbollah and Iran establishing infrastructure to attack Israel from the Syrian Golan.
  • Hezbollah and Iran would like to extend their front against Israel into Syria, and to deter Israel from military action in Syria.
  • Israel is keen to prevent any party using the Syrian Golan as a base to attack Israel, but also keen to avoid an escalation that could trigger a major conflict with Hezbollah.
  • Since both sides would rather avoid a full blown confrontation, this may be avoided for now, but future clashes are likely, and could escalate out of control.
Please sign our petition calling on the Co-op to end their boycott

If you haven’t already signed it, please join the 1700 people who have already signed our new national petition calling on the Co-op Group to drop their boycott of a number of Israeli companies:

We need to get thousands of signatures for this to have an impact on the Co-op’s Board members – please sign it and forward it to your friends and family to ask them to sign it too.

Letter writing campaign: Churches Together Lentern Readings

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland have produced a series of readings for the run-up to Easter ( ) which draw attention to the plight of Christians in the Middle East - on a country by country basis.

Whilst Christians in Syria and Iraq face crucifixion, beheadings and massacre, abductions and forced conversions, by the likes of Islamic State, some of the harshest words in the readings are directed against Israel (the villain of two of the six readings).

Many Christians have informed us they are embarrassed by these readings - both because of their unrestrained negativity towards Israel and their failure to focus on Islamist extremism as a cause of oppression of Christians in the region. So far as the Jewish community is concerned, the readings certainly do not reflect compassion and love, or even basic fairness.

We are therefore calling people who are concerned about this - both Jewish and Christian - to write a short and polite email to CTBI setting out their concerns. Emails can be addressed to Rev Bob Fyffe, General Secretary of CTBI at

Here are some points to consider highlighting:

  • The reading about Israel nowhere refers to it as a democratic state, omits the fact that Israel allows freedom of worship for all, or that it is one of few countries in the region where its Christian community is growing (annual growth rate of 1.2%, Israel Central Bureau of Statistics, 2012).
  • Instead Israel's treatment of Christians is presented in the following terms: inequalities, discrimination, vandalism, desecration and deprivation. Whilst there are issues of discrimination against minorities in Israeli society, it must be highlighted that the Arab Christian community in Israel out performs all faiths in key educational markers, such as high school students who earn their diploma (64%, compared to 59% for Jewish Israelis and 48% for Muslim Israelis), and are very well represented in universities and the medical profession.
  • In contrast, the readings on Syria, Egypt and the Palestinian Territories, do not focus on Islamist radicalism, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas or IS (the Islamic State). Brave Christians from the West Bank are speaking out about persecution at the hands of the PA and Islamic extremists - but their story is ignored by the CBTI readings, and they are therefore left tragically to stand alone.
  • In Egypt the burning of over 80 churches and the murder of scores of Christians by car bombs, sectarian rioting and assassination is passed over in one sentence.
  • Israel is criticised for its security barrier, checkpoints and other restrictions. Nowhere is the justification put that these are unfortunately required to preserve life, Jewish and Arab, from violent attacks - such as the recent synagogue murders in Jerusalem and mass stabbings on a Tel Aviv bus.
  • Israel's law of return, enabling Jews to emigrate to Israel, is viewed in a negative light – with no reference to Jews fleeing persecution. It is suggested that "olim" without family in Israel have no connection to the land.
  • The concern is not just about preparing Christians for Easter by a hostile and insensitive reading about Israel and the Jewish community. Christians should also be concerned about the crass politicisation of their own Bible. The final reading describes Mary, the mother of Jesus, as "a young Palestinian Jewish girl".  The New Testament never describes the land as Palestine or its people as Palestinian. The land was designated Palestine by the Roman rulers a century later.

January 23, 2015
We apologize that many of you were not able to access yesterday's newsletter edition for several hours due to a server going down.  It is now fixed and you may now access the stories from yesterday's email or view the online edition here:
In light of today's death of Saudi King Abdullah we felt two important stories were worth revisiting to better understand the impact this will have on the Islamic world and subsequently the world at large:
Death Of Saudi King - The End Time Event Islamists Have Been Waiting For

Death Of Saudi King Could Set Stage For Islamic End Times Frenzy In 2015
We are often asked why we include stories that relate to Islamic End Times thinking.  While we are a Christian based organization it is important to understand what Islamists believe and how such beliefs will impact their politics and actions.  Recent developments in the Islamic world including the death of the Saudi King are likely to play a direct role in what the Bible prophecies will happen in the last days as the Muslim world turn their eyes towards the final goal of marching on Jerusalem.

The Boy Who Did Not Go to Heaven
By Erik Jones, Wednesday, January 21, 2015 10:53 AM

Recently a boy who claimed to have gone to heaven after a car accident recanted his story. But was his reversal necessary to know his story was not true?

In 2010 a book titled The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven was published telling the story of Alex Malarkey. Alex was involved in a terrible car accident in 2004 when he was 6 years old. Alex survived the accident but was in a coma for two months and ultimately was left paralyzed. What was unique about his story was that when he awoke from the coma, he made the claim that he had temporarily died and ascended to heaven.
Alex described angels escorting him to heaven where he met and spoke with Jesus Christ and God the Father. He also claimed to have seen hell, describing it as a “hole in heaven.” Alex’s father, Kevin Malarkey, took Alex’s story and authored the aforementioned book, which became a New York Times best seller.
There was just one problem.
Alex Malarkey, now 16 years old, made news this past week by admitting that he made up the whole story—every word.
Here Alex’s statement:
“I did not die. I did not go to Heaven. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to” (“The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” Recants Story, Rebukes Christian Retailers”). The book about Alex is part of a popular book genre referred to as “heavenly tourism.” If you search Amazon or Christian Book Distributors, you will see dozens of books containing stories about individuals claiming to have gone to heaven after death, only to be resuscitated and returned to earth. There are hundreds of websites and YouTube videos that contain these stories—often called “near-death experiences.”
But, just like in Alex’s case, there’s one major problem.
None of them are real.
These stories are either totally made up (as Alex Malarkey’s was) or are possibly the result of surges of brain activity that often occur as the brain is dying. Read this interesting article that explains this phenomenon: “Near-Death Experiences Are ‘Electrical Surge in Dying Brain.’”

Three reasons “near-death experiences” are false

We don’t need those who claim to have these experiences to openly recant, like Alex did, in order to know these stories are false. Common sense and the Bible give us the answers. Let’s look at three reasons these claims are, and always will be, false.
1. Not everyone who has a near-death experience makes these claims.
Because of the advances in medical technology in the last 50 years, doctors have been able to save many people who were technically dead. In fact, you probably know someone whose heart and breathing stopped, yet who was resuscitated and lived. I do.
The fact is that the majority of people who experience this do not claim to have these visions and experiences. It is actually a small minority who make these claims. And honestly, these claims are usually made to draw attention and (in many cases) to make money. People know that human beings are fascinated with the afterlife and will listen to these stories.
But think: If human beings have an immortal soul that continues to live after our body dies—why doesn’t every person who legally dies experience something? Does it make sense that some live on after death, but others don’t?  
2. Jesus Christ explicitly stated that these claims are false.
This is ultimately the reason we don’t have to wait for someone to retract his or her story to know whether these stories are true or false. It doesn’t matter what anyone says—the Word of God should be our source of truth (John 17:17).
Jesus Christ made one statement that should totally end questions or discussion on these experiences:
“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven” (John 3:13).
Can any statement be clearer? There is only one Man who has ever ascended to heaven (the place of God’s throne) after death—and that was Jesus Christ Himself. For more insight into what the Bible says about going to heaven, read “Do We Go to Heaven When We Die?
3. The Bible doesn’t support such near-death experiences.
The Bible contains many accounts of people dying and being brought back to life. Some of the people who died in the Bible were dead for much longer than a few seconds or minutes. But none of these experiences include one word about these people leaving a heavenly state of consciousness to be brought back to physical life.
Read through one of the most famous resurrection accounts in the Bible—the resurrection of Jesus Christ’s personal friend Lazarus in John 11. Lazarus became very ill and died while Jesus was miles away. When Jesus referred to Lazarus’ death, He said, “Lazarus sleeps” (verse 11). In fact, many other scriptures use the terminology ofsleep to describe death (1 Thessalonians 4:13-14; Job 3:13).
Lazarus was dead for four days before Jesus arrived (John 11:17, 39). The account describes Jesus Christ miraculously resurrecting Lazarus. What is missing from the whole account is anything about Lazarus’ soul being snatched from heaven and brought back to physical life.
Read some of the other accounts of physical resurrections in the Bible and you will see no claims of white lights, angels or heaven: 1 Kings 17; 2 Kings 4; Luke 7 and 8; Matthew 28; Acts 9; Acts 20.
Much more to the story
The above points were all we had room for in this short blog. But there is much more to the story! The Bible reveals many details about what happens after a person dies. We have prepared a detailed booklet that explains this topic thoroughly.
As well as providing many more scriptures that support the above points, you will learn:
  • The origin of the belief that the soul is immortal and lives on after death.
  • The many scriptures that describe death as being a state of total unconsciousness.
  • The facts about hell and why it is not “a hole in heaven.”
  • The inspiring and encouraging truth of the future resurrection of the dead.
  • The exciting future of all of mankind after the resurrection.

This World is a CON

1 Vote

man looking at cashAt this time of pressure, almost our biggest enemy is the world and its values. In the end it will be a battle between what this life offers, and the promise of a better life to come.
The Apostle Paul told believers the same thing many years ago. He prefaced his remarks by urging us all to become available to God. Instead of a blood sacrifice presented at the temples of the pagan gods (of Greece and Rome) he urged a willing sacrifice of our OWN bodies and minds offered at God’s Throne.
Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Every observant Jew understood that sacrifices had to be perfect, unblemished, flawless, and acceptable to God.

False Dedication

IF we presented ourselves to the Throne merely as unaltered human beings, it would not matter how willing, how ThroneofGracePotterdedicated or earnest we were in that noble sacrifice of our lives. We would still be found unacceptable.
It is a tragedy that so many clerics, monks, nuns, pastors and other religious people have given up their lives supposedly into God’s service only to be found unacceptable. No unchanged unredeemed human flesh CAN ever be acceptable to God.
[Romans 8:5-8] For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, **nor indeed can be**. So then, those who are in the flesh CANNOT PLEASE GOD.
Paul then continued:
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.

How to Know God’s Will

Here we find the secret of knowing what is God’s will, and proving – or testing by application – what is good or bad, acceptable or offensive, what is flawed or perfect, what is God’s will or a deception.
Sometimes it’s not easy to know, yet here Paul shows the way. It’s to have a renewed mind that is transformed by the Spirit of God. To have the mind of Christ in effect! Paul himself claimed to be in that condition in 1 Corinthians 2:16
But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

Con versus Trans

Looking at the verse in Romans, I see two words that we need to explore.
  • Do not be CON-formed (to this world and its activities and values)
  • But do be TRANS-formed (by a renewed mind)
These two phrases seem similar, but there is an important difference. The method is not the same for both. and I can demonstrate this by looking at the two words CON and TRANS.
CON with, together with. This little word tacked onto another means the method of getting the thing done is WITH something, in unity.
For instance:
  • CON – ference — talking together WITH others
  • CON – sensus — a mutual accord or agreement WITH others
  • CON – vene — link together WITH others
So CONform is to be made like something that you are with, united to. A gel sets into the shape, CONFORMS to the man-woman-mouldshape, of its mould. Conformity is mutual agreement.
Imagine someone making an ice structure. Firstly the ice block has to be formed with (CON) a mould. Then the artist sets to work with (CON) various tools to hack and melt and shape the block into a beautiful statue.
This is the way the world tries to shape us, to form us! United together with this world, we are seduced and wooed and feather-bedded until it becomes something we value too much to lose. But now look at the alternative – transformation.
TRANS through, across, beyond
  • TRANS – mission — sending something through cables or air
  • TRANS – fusion — infusing something through barriers
  • TRANS – luscent — seeing light through something
So Paul is showing the two methods by which we are influenced, as Christians. Firstly there is the world pressing us into a mould and making us conform to it; secondly there is God’s method.
Glory of GodThese are not the same. God doesn’t force us into a pre-shaped God-mould. Instead He sends the Holy Spirit to change our hearts and minds and attitudes about what we see and hear and do.
We have to mindfully accept that shaping. We need to humbly submit to His renewal of our inner being, and walk in His light. That in turn (by His indwelling presence) filters through into every attitude we have towards this world.

The Transformation

No longer do we see value in the world’s methods and aims! No longer are our eyes dazzled by the (supposed) luxury jesus-changed-my-heartand enjoyment of possessions, achievements, praise, comfort and all that this life offers. As well as that, our allegiances shift away from humanity to God.
No more does human love come first, nor do friendships and churches, family and the social network that is so all-consuming. We can appreciate all these things while knowing that first and foremost Jesus is the only starting-block and finishing-line of our race. (Heb 12:1-2)
Ultimately, if everything is lost we will say – like Job – though God go to the full extent of taking all I have and even ending my life, still will I praise him and be faithful to him. And THAT, dear friends, is the only attitude that will enable us to make it through the ‘perilous times’ ahead.
We are not CON-formed (formed with the tools of the world, united with their values) but by TRANS-formation (through God’s Holy Spirit working in our hearts and minds, given free access to our will so as to change it into HIS will.)

New post on Now The End Begins

Presbyterian Church And Arab Palestinian Group Rewriting The Bible To Remove References To Israel

by Geri Ungurean

Have you heard that there is a new version of our Bible? But this version is unlike any prior version of God’s Word

“And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Isaiah 2:3 (KJV)
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Palestinian and Sabeel Liberation Theology groups have partnered with the Presbyterian Church in America as their main support for this satanic doctrine. And no wonder, the Presbyterian Church in recent years has become rabidly anti-Israel and ferociously pro-LGBT.
This new version blatantly changes God’s Word.Any mention of Israel - gone. Any mention of Jesus being a Jew - gone. The movement which has brought the world a NEW bible, is called Palestinian Liberation Theology. At its heart is hatred for the Jewish people and for Israel. Of course, keeping in line with this hatred, the leaders of this satanic movement have changed Jesus (Yeshua) from being Jewish to being a Palestinian Arab.
If there is one thing that the bible is, it's a Jewish book from cover to cover. Jesus Christ is called the King of the Jews.

The Jewishness of Jesus is clearly documented in the Word of God - His Jewish lineage is recorded in the books of Matthew and Luke. But remember, the leaders and teachers of the PLT are reading from a new source - their own bible, hence they have made for themselves a new Jesus.
“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (KJV)
An Arab Palestinian Anglican priest is at the forefront of this very evil and satanic movement.I wonder, does he really believe this nonsense, or is it in his desperation to bring the Palestinian people into the spotlight, while cursing Israel as the little Satan? Maybe a little of both, but he is definitely a casualty to the Strong Delusion spoken of in God’s Word.
“However, something new does crop up when someone like the Reverend Dr. Naim Stifan Ateek attempts to revise history. Dr. Ateek is an Arab Palestinian Anglican priest and the founder of Sabeel International Ecumenical Liberation Theology Centerin Jerusalem. He has rewritten the whole story book in the same manner that Catholic, Anglican and Reformed theologies have claimed that the Christian Church is “The New Israel” also called “The Israel of God.” Rewriting history and inventing theology is a popular vocation. Revisionist historians take liberties with facts until they cease to have meaning. Prime examples are the Holocaust denial polemics or current trends to rewrite American history texts.
The group picture shown here was taken outside the Notre Dame Conference Center in Jerusalem. Twelve delegates from the Presbytery of Philadelphia joined over 200 other delegates from 15 countries to attend Sabeel’s 9th International Conference entitled “The Bible and the Palestine-Israel Conflict”. (Sabeel is an ecumenical center in Jerusalem for Palestinian Liberation Theology that seeks to make the Gospel contextually relevant.) - quoted from their website
Ateek has an axe to grind; he needs to advance his Palestinian agenda by displacing Israel. In an effort to push his version of Christian dogma, he rewrites the Bible and fabricates a formidable sounding contemporary social justice ideology. His personal fish story is born fully formed from the caverns of his own vivid imagination. If it weren’t so dangerous, it would be ludicrous.” [1] source
Another name for this movement is Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology.
“Sabeel (Arabic 'the way' and also 'a channel' or 'spring') Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center is a Christian liberation theology organization based in Jerusalem. It was founded by Palestinian Anglican priest, Rev. Naim Ateek, the former Canon of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem. An official partner of the Presbyterian Church USA, Sabeel has Friends of Sabeel chapters in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia.” source
Should it really surprise us that the Presbyterian church is a partner in this?I’m not surprised at all. The other mainline churches who have jumped on this heretical bandwagon are: Episcopalian, Methodist, Lutheran and even some Evangelical churches in the U.S. have followed suit. I wonder when the Vatican will thrown in their hat?
Brethren, these things sound and indeed are so incredibly evil. But as followers of Yeshua, we should be rejoicing! YES, REJOICE!
God’s Prophetic Word is being fulfilled at breakneck speed! That means that we are close to His Glorious appearing, to take us away from this horrid place! Hallelujah!!
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28 (KJV)

Jan 19, 2015The Point of No Return for Islamic Violence
Up to three million people marched in the largest protest France has ever seen, including more than 40 world leaders. The rally honored the 17 victims of Islamic terror. “Today, Paris is the capital of the world,” said French President Francois Hollande. “Our entire country will rise up toward something better.”
The attack against the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo has gotten the world’s attention, but I’m very skeptical that something meaningful will result from the tragedy. Common sense should tell us that there is something deeply wrong with the Muslim faith, and yet every effort is being made to shift blame away from the followers of the Koran.
Islamists have such monopoly on terror. Every time there is breaking news about gunfire or an explosion in a public setting, you naturally know the perpetrator is at least one Muslim. Over the years, the number of attacks reach into the thousands.
Some of the major incidents are 9/11, the Madrid bombings in 2004, London in 2005, the Kenyan mall, the Fort Hood shooting, Benghazi, the ISIS massacre in Northern Iraq and Syria, Canada’s parliament, the Australia cafe attack, and Boko Haram who recently killed an entire village.
We seem to be at a point where the denial of these terror events has caused us to depart from the fundamentals of reality. When former Gov. Howard Dean was asked for comment about the Charlie Hebdo attack, he immediately dismissed the idea that Islam should be to blame for the attack.
“I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists,” Dean said on MSNBC’sMorning Joe. “They’re about as Muslim as I am.” He also said he does not believe ISIS is an “Islamic cult” and thinks it would be unwise to “accord [the gunmen] any religious respect.”
The liberal media has made a game out of finding new words to describe the attackers. If you watch a newscast, you’ll hear: Radical, militant, extremist, adherent, sympathizer, terrorist, and lone wolf. They are all inadequate synonyms for the more appropriate word: Muslim. I’ll say it again: Muslim.
I was scanning the news, and I ran across a CNN article titled, “After Paris attacks, 7 questions being asked about Islam.” I knew right away that the CNN would give Islam a free pass. Sure enough, CNN provided the question and then asked Islamic representatives to fill in the answers.
The pro-Muslim bias at CNN is evident when one reporter let a “longtime, Muslim-American source” make this kind of statement without being challenged: “Muslims cannot get a break. Every day there must be an event to suggest Islam is inherently violent. Such acts destroy years of goodwill and work about Islam.”
The claim is made that Islam is a peaceful religion, but propaganda cannot change a lie into the truth. Islam easily rivals Soviet-style Communism in oppression. According to a study on persecution by Open Doors USA’s World Watch List, nine of the ten countries with the worst records for persecution of Christians have populations that are dominated by Muslims.
The peaceful part only comes after they’ve killed all the infidels or forced them to leave the country.
In the light of these latest terror attacks, Saudi Arabia didn’t even have the good sense to delay the flogging of blogger, Raif Badawi. He was convicted of insulting Islam by simply creating a website that promoted freedom of speech. Since Saudi Arabia does not tolerate any type of political dissent, calls from the international community to postpone Badawi’s punishment fell on deaf ears.
There would be far less bloodshed if our leaders read and understood the Bible. In Genesis, we are told that there is a spiritual conflict between Abraham’s two sons. Isaac would be the son of the promise and Ishmael would be cursed as a “wild ass” of a man with his hand against every man and every man’s hand against him (Genesis 16:12).
I think it’s clear to the vast majority of people that the children of Ishmael are the world’s worst trouble makers, but political correctness stands in the way of corrective action. Because Islam is so clearly satanically driven, I think that beyond this point—we are inevitably headed toward the Tribulation judgment.
“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short” (Matthew 24:21-22).

This Present Madness
Perhaps you will remember a novel by Frank E. Peretti published in 1986 with the title This Present Darkness. The story involved spiritual warfare engaged in by human protagonists, and pitting God’s angels against the demonic minions. It featured prayer and biblical prescription for battle as given in Ephesians, chapter 6, verse 12, in particular.
the 1980s were certainly years that brought forth growing spiritual darkness on planet earth, just as has every decade since the Fall in Eden. The issues and events of that decade provided more than plentiful fodder for the fiction conjured from Peretti’s brain. Although the book dealt with and dwelled on spiritual darkness in a fictional way, the actual downward spiral of morality in America and the world during that timeframe more than matched that portrayed by the novelist.
On the geopolitical level, the Soviet Union became increasingly brutal in exerting dictatorship over its East European client-states. Thus, all the while its power was degrading because of the cost of maintaining and trying to further build upon its fanatic militarism. The USSR, being totally sold out to and invested in anti-God evil, suffered the weight created by communism’s ideological gravity, which pulled freedom’s light into itself in much the same way a star in the process of going nova collapses in upon itself. The last years of the decade, geopolitically, indeed imposed a dark presence.
Hatred for Israel grew in the mid-1980s as Islam’s chief terrorist organizations were found to have massive arsenals stockpiled along Lebanon’s southern border. Israel’s avowed enemies within the Arab world obviously planned an all-out assault. The Jewish state’s preemptive military action pushed back for decades the insanity that we are experiencing at present. Not only Islamist hatred, led by a nuclear-ambitious Iran, but anti-Semitism now seems an unstoppable, malignancy spreading globally by the hour.
And this is where the “present darkness,” as Peretti would have it, has become “this present madness,” as is manifestly the case in so many ways.
Satan is the most cunningly evil of all creatures, and brilliant in stratagem, as tracing his footprints while he, like a roaring lion, stalks back and forth, seeking whom he might devour, clearly shows. But, he is also now mad that is, insane— provable by truth found in God’s Word: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind" (Romans 1:28a).
The old serpent, the devil, who is the father of lies and hates any thought of God, has a mind that is totally incapable of seeing things as they really are. His thinking is upside down, and incorrigibly wicked.
Proof that he is mad–insane— is found in the fact that he knows the Creator of all things is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. God cannot lie, and absolutely knows the end from the beginning–in each and every, excruciatingly minute detail. Yet, knowing that God has foretold Satan’s ultimate destiny–that he will burn eternally in the lake of fire—Satan still thinks he will be victorious and escape his fate. That is the supremely arrogant, essence of madness.
This luciferian madness is more infectious than Ebola or any of the most such diseases one could name. Its effects, I contend, are seen most observably by considering, again, the number-one signal of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline. I’m referring to the nation Israel, and to God’s chosen people, the Jews.
Specifically, I’m talking about the Christian church–a broad, evangelical, portion of which has adopted or is in process of adopting the anti-Semitism that is metastasizing throughout the world at present.
Despite God’s plain declaration that those who curse the progeny of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will suffer curses of eternal consequences, a vast number of pastors and their church bodies are taking up the rant of Palestinianism, which holds, basically, that modern Israel has no claim to God’s promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
These church leaders and their regimes that support Israel’s enemies’ right to the land God granted the Jews claim that Israel, in its modern incarnation, is illegitimate and an intruder. In this way they are falling into the same satanic trap into which the people of Hitler’s Germany fell. This is, in my view, madness that is much darker than the darkness Mr. Peretti portrayed in his best-selling novel.
It is madness that is swiftly bringing upon the world what will be the greatest judgment ever experienced by those who defy the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. True believers in the Lord Jesus Christ–who was virgin-born a Jew, ministered and did miracles as a Jew, who died on the cross and resurrected as a Jew for the salvation of all who will believe—should immediately leave any church that harbors this anti-Semitism.
This same Jewish Lord of all lords and King of all kings is coming again to rule and reign on the throne of David. It will be a Jewish throne!

WIDE IS THE GATE: The Emerging New Christianity

These 7 episodes (over 5 1/2 hrs of eye-opening discussions) focus on the hyper-Charismatic/ Pentecostal movements also known as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), restoration of modern Apostles and Prophets, Five Fold Ministry, Modern Prophetic Movement (signs and wonders) Latter Rain, Manifest Sons of God and many other names, that teach, in one way or another,Dominion Theology, 7 Mountains, Kingdom Now, etc.

We hope Volume 3’s crucial message goes out across the world in 2015 and that you can be part of promoting its message to your contacts and friends! Many of our viewers have already been circulating Vols I & 2, & The Exclusive Bonus, EXPOSINGChristian Palestinianism and reporting back amazing stories of the opening of spiritual eyes and ears as people have been released from false teachings to freedom through turning to the Word of God. This series combined Running-Time adds up to almost 15 hours of powerfully revealing information about many of the false doctrines and teachers overpowering the Church today.

The release of Volume 3, for all its delays, is perfectly within the timeliness of the Lord Who was the Only One to know of the increasing developments and aggressive growth of today’s Pentecostal/Charismatic Movements and its insidious unbiblical doctrinal errors.  Jesus warned that signs and lying wonders would be part of last days spiritual deception, and sadly the Prophetic Movement’s experiential mysticism and occult teachings are being unwittingly practiced in many mainline denominations worldwide.

While Volumes 1 and 2 unfold the history of various heresies within the Church and expose the Gnostic mystical growth within the Emergent Church Movement, Volume 3reveals the sowing of much confusion as supernatural experiences merge with tangible manifestations being promoted as “a brand new work of the Holy Spirit” (manifesting slain in the spirit, extra-Biblical prophetic revelations, angelic visitations, ecstasies of God, visits to the Third Heaven, visions, miracles, binding and loosing warfare in the heavenlies, etc.) 

Over recent years we’ve received hundreds of encouraging letters from those who’ve been comforted by the content of the Wide is The Gate series, illustrating how important its information is to a starving remnant who have difficulty in finding Churches that feed a steady diet of wholesome Scripture. Instead, misinterpreting and twisting God’s Holy Word is leading to a falling away from Biblical faith to a counterfeit - an apostasy not Revival!

Volume 3 Guests include a former Pastor of the Assemblies of God, former members of Bill Johnson’s Bethel Movement, and Mike Bickle’s (Founder of the Kansas City Prophets) IHOP (International House of Prayer), and from the Vineyard (Founder John Wimber) Ministry of Music.

Volume 3 carefully unfolds expert Biblical analysis of the signs and wonders prophetic counterfeits, contrasting the counterfeits and testing them against what Scripture teaches.
