Paris. The City of Lights was turned dark when Islamic extremists imposed punishment on the French people through a coordinated attack that ended over one hundred lives. Their crime? Not being Muslim.
This planned and coordinated invasion and subjection of Europe to Islamic culture and practices will have long-term consequences. Unless and until world leaders admit that we are in a religious war, no nation will be safe from the effects of this cultural invasion. When combined with the "I need a safe space" mantra of the brain-dead college students on campuses all across the US who are now "offended" by the 1st Amendment guarantee of free speech, we are heading for a religious and intellectual conflict on a Biblical scale.
Lincoln once said, ""America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." Brothers and sisters, as incredible as it may seem, we may see that very warning manifesting itself inside our own borders.
Join John as he address this issue, and many others, in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "Situation Normal? Time of Jacob's Trouble."
It is becoming increasingly obvious that discernment and wisdom are not gifts endowed upon many whom the masses have put in charge of their governments. The administration's recent demand that boys who identify as girls, but still have all the attributes that make them boys, must have access to girls showers in schools is just one of many decisions and "impositions" that just goes to prove that, as our friend Jacob Prasch once said, we have "lost the ability to reason."
From statistics that show that even those who claim to be evangelical are becoming more approving of homosexuality, to the Turkish President Erdogen who won re-election in a massive landslide, to the revelation of George Soros as being a primary source behind the massive immigration (read, "invasion") into Germany other countries in Europe, the world is looking for leadership and finding very few who are competent and wise.
This week's update entitled "A Real Famine" takes us on a journey through another week of wacky to outrageous to terrifying; substantiating the fact that we may have now traveled so far away from God's Word that we may not make it back as a society. The current path can only lead to destruction.
One of the signs of the end times is a proliferation of deception and false teaching. That time may be here, as the deceivers have infiltrated formerly solid evangelical churches. In addition to John's broad update on the state of the world, be prepared to be shocked with what you see and hear as John exposes the heresy and false teachings that are infiltrating congregations and universities worldwide.
From Liberty University's hosting of Brian Houston, to Passion Church's Halloween intro in Minneapolis, MN, leaders are straying from strong Biblical messages to entertainment venues where style outweighs substance.
John also addresses:
The Fall of Germany - Will Merkel survive the Muslim invasion she invited?
The Oslo Accords. Will this be the fulfillment of the covenant spoken of in Daniel, Chapter 9?
China's 1 child policy. China's population growth is unsustainable so their government has been gracious enough to allow a 2nd child.
Oh...and by the way. All of you who stood in line at Chick-Fil-a for them taking a stand on traditional marriage? You've been duped. Wait until you see a recent event they sponsored.
The move toward a one-world, one-currency system spoken of by the prophets plus much more is covered in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "Wolf Alert."
The Convergence is occurring and moving more rapidly at each turn. Get Ready!
This week's update is jam-packed with so many topics and so little time, so here's a list of just some of the items will be addressed in this week's Prophecy Update entitled "False Religion". John's interview on Love for the Truth can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0EwI3zgJzNk
Brazil's Pension Program (it is unsustainable)
The potential collapse of the Saudi Economy in 5 years
Worldwide Christian Persecution
Oprah Winfry, the High Priestess of World Religions
The Parliament of World Religions
Prominent Leftists and those who adore them with "Itching Ears" Obama, the Pope and Brian McLaren
Isaiah 17 fulfilled? Drone footage of Damascus (not quite, but almost a heap of rubble)
The Muslim Invasion of Europe.
And a dire warning to any who love Jesus with all their hearts, mind and souls. If you church is toying with false teachers and their misleading, deceptive teachings, get out. Get out now, and as our friend, Jacob Prasch says, "Take as many people as you can with you. You are on a rescue mission."
(WARNING: There are videos that start at approximately the 51:00 mark that contain footage from security cameras that capture recent knife and vehicle attacks by Palestinians against Israeli citizens. The footage tells the real story of what is happening, juxtaposed with the media narrative to demonstrate the bias that exists against Israel and her people. Parental discretion is advised.)
What are the signs of the end"? Is it a confirmation of a peace treaty with Israel? Is it an indication that the world is turning against her longtime ally? Or could it be the beginning of the "Third Intifada" that could push Israel to the point where they declare "Enough is Enough?
Or is it simply that John wore a tie to do this update?
Grab your duct tape, wrap it securely around your head and get ready, because what John is about to share will surely make your head explode.
From Putin's elaborate chess game (compared to Obama's checkers), from the Southern Poverty Law Center's designation of Christian Groups as Hate Groups (not based upon a tendency toward violence, but just because of what they believe) to the false narrative being spread by the news media and the Palestinian activists, this update is a journey to the edge of the precipice. Get ready to take it all in as John shares his thoughts on some of the "Signs of the End" in this week's edition of the Prophecy Update.
There are warnings all around. Some obvious, others not. If you are in tune with God's Word and staying focused on His plan, you will not be caught off guard by unexpected threats. Join John as he brings us updates from around the world along with a prophetic warning to be aware in this week's update entitled "Canaries in the Coal Mine."
This week, John looks at the Large Hadron Collider known as CERN, the Russian military movements into Syria, the death toll in the Hajj which could lead to war between Saudi Arabia and Iran due to the death of nearly 500 Iranian Muslims.
As if that weren't enough, John exposes the DOJ's endorsement of an international police force (including advancing the goals of Agenda 21 and the 2030 Agenda) including government warnings against "Far Right Extremism" (translated, "Christians").
Finally, Rev. Jeremiah Wright reveals his true nature and that of our President in a clip recorded on October 10, 2015 on the National Mall during the 20th Anniversary of the "Million Man March."
In days gone by, hard working Americans coal miners took canaries underground as an early detection system to the threat of carbon monoxide. For the Christian, our early detection system is found in the study of the Word of God, and a keen awareness of world events that are converging with an every increasing pace.
The Persians invented Chess...but the Russians mastered it. This week's update by FBC's John Haller looks at the shuffling of power in the Middle East and the potential impact on Israel, the recent attack in Oregon that singled out followers of Christ and yet another ACLU lawsuit that demands that a Catholic hospital provide abortive services.
What is Putin up to, and how will the power void and projection of weakness unmistakably signaled by the US President affect events worldwide? So many pieces on the board are in play and the end times scenario is playing out right on schedule, just as God predicted. All the pieces are falling into place. Who will make the next move?
Rainbow Police, mass migrations, the Pope in Congress, violent events everywhere, stampeding Muslims, George Will calls the Pope a False Prophet - Things you don't see everyday are becoming the norm. Are these like the times of Lot? Are these like the times of Noah?
Russia is outfitting Syrian airports with improved runways, modern attack helicopters, fighter jets, and barracks. Does that sound like preparation for Ezekiel 38 & 39?.
Why does the Pope talk more about Climate Change and Wealth Redistribution than abortion and homosexual marriage? Is it because the religion of the Pope is leftism?
Catholics keep crucifying Jesus, false teachers join in praise of the Pope, Evangelical leaders are being sucked in to this apostasy - Its an End Times, Box-Checking, False Religion Hype-a-Palooza tour! Join John as he pierces the corporate veil that is the Catholic Church and ends in a provocative analysis of Ezekiel 8 in this week's Prophecy Update.
(For additional teaching on the need to refute false teachers and prophets, please check out our first hour message today at the below link. Both Pastor Steve and John Haller delivered a powerful message this morning in our first service entitled "Elders: Refuting False Teachers")
All eyes are focused on September 23, 24 and 25, 2015 as the Pope visits America, Mahmoud Abbas promises to drop a "bombshell" at the end of his UN Speech and Congress continues to wrestle with a treaty that will certainly arm Iran with nuclear weapons.
Scripture speaks of a time such as this, and describes the three main players who will rock the cradle of the world. The coming Antichrist, the False Prophet and the Beast.
It also talks of a time where folks will be moving "to and fro".
It speaks of one who will confirm the "covenant with the many" and usher in a false peace.
And it speaks of a time when followers of Christ will be persecuted for their faith.
Many world leaders are currently stepping into the proverbial spotlight as the world looks for someone to manage the immigrant crisis that has all eyes focused on the Middle East. Power players such as the Pope, Barack Obama, Abbas, Erdogen, Putin and a host of others are auditioning for this end time trilogy of evil. Do any of these men fit the descriptions of the deceivers who come in the end times, or will a relatively unknown, charismatic leader burst onto the scene with all the answers the world wants to hear? What characteristics do each have in common? And how will these unholy alliances impact believers worldwide?
John addresses these and many other questions, including an analysis of whether or not Europe getting "paid back" for their treatment of the Jews during the German assault to eliminate them from the face of the earth. in this week's update entitled "New World Disorder".
Is the Pope Catholic, or is he the False Prophet? Seems like an odd question, but one that needs to be asked and answered.
John addresses this question and many more in this week's update entitled "Roller Coaster"
"Please remain seated, and keep your hands on feet inside the vehicle because you are about to experience one wild ride."
A mass migration of Muslim refugees are invading Western Europe, and unlike previous invasions, Europe is supplying the transports. With the European birthrates falling below sustainable levels, some are predicting that Spain, France, Germany and England will become Islamic Republics before the year 2050. The math is easy. The Muslim birthrate is over 8 children per family, while the average European rate is less than 2. 90 % of recent European population growth is due to immigration. A culture cannot survive those numbers.
As if that was not bad enough, Russians are moving supplies, men and material into Syria. Iran says Israel will be no more in less than 25 years and the Oslo Accords could be back on the front and center of the world stage. In Daniel, Chapter 9, the Antichrist will confirm a "...covenant with the many." What if this is the ONE to which Daniel refers ?
We have now reached the top of the lift...and we pause to look over the precipice before losing our lunch on the first drop. Hold on...here we go!!!
Each week, John Haller brings us important developments on the prophetic front and this week is no exception. From a bad Iranian Nuke Deal, to the massive immigration that is occurring with people moving "to and fro" (Daniel 12:4, perhaps?) to an out of control judicial system that has crossed the line and is now jailing folks for following their moral and spiritual conscience, the convergence of events continues to race toward the end of all things.
When we understand that the dominant religion in the US is now "Leftism", we can better prepare ourselves for what is coming. A public official now sits in jail, without bail, simply due to her faith? Think about that for a moment...this is still America, right?
Pastor Steve Mitchell and Pastor Mike Clapham continue their second hour Bible study with an in-depth message on what it is to be "born again". Repentance of sin is an ongoing process. While we are justified by faith alone, the process of sanctification is one filled with episodes where we fall short in our Christian walk. We then turn back to God, admit our failures, repent of our shortcomings and then we strive to be more like Him each day.
It is this process through which we become more like Christ each day, instead of being the believer who is not actively working their faith. Through repentance, we become stronger in our belief and in our witness to a lost and dying world.
Pastor Steve Mitchell and Pastor Mike Clapham continue their "Power to Stand"Teaching Series with a discussion focusing on 1 Cor 15, and the concept of Power and Love as two inseparable parts of God's willingness and His ability to save us. Love was represented in the crucifixion...and power in the resurrection.
Realizing a vision that has been 6 months in the making, we are introducing a brand new teaching series from Fellowship Bible Chapel. "Power to Stand" is designed to inform and encourage folks how to live a Christian life in the Last Days.
The class is team taught by Pastor Steve Mitchell and Pastor Mike Clapham of Fellowship Bible Chapel and is conducted in a classroom setting during the second hour of our morning worship services. We hope that you'll grab a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, take out your notepad and join us on this journey.
In this introductory lesson, Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve explore what it takes to live life with full anticipation of Christ's soon return but one that draws nearer and nearer to the heart of God with each passing day. Several pertinent passages of Scripture will be discussed, with some concentration on the meaning of specific original Greek words being used.
As always, your emails and comments are welcome and appreciated.
As a compliment to last's week's message entitled "Stop Freakin' Out", John returns this week to warn us of the things to get ready to do. Starting off by taking a trip back to November of 1929, John shows us quotes by financial experts of the day who were painting a picture of an improving economic outlook in the spring of 1930. Clearly, they were wrong.
Those same headlines are repeating themselves today, because we have failed to learn from history to recognize the signs that judgments are coming. We must be prepared and we must stand firm. That is the battle cry for the remnant church as we move toward that final place in history where mankind comes face to face with a Holy God who will judge.
This message is to those who make up the true remnant church. It is time to be bold and take a stand.
The Western US is on fire. The Middle East is on alert. The Chinese and US stock markets are tumbling. Syrian refuges are starving. The Iranians are promising to monitor their own nukes while simultaneously producing YouTube videos of the Revolutionary Guard making preparation to destroy Israel.
And the pundits? They have no clue what is about to befall them and an unsuspecting world.
As Christians, we can sometimes be sucked in and overwhelmed by the convergence of events that is propelling us to the point where Christ returns. But as John reminds us in this week's Prophecy Update, we should "Stop Freakin' Out" and instead stay focused on the reminders from God's Word that assure us that He is still in control.
As is was in the Days of Noah - Meteorologists are predicting a devastating weather pattern that will impact the west coast in Godzilla proportions.
As it was in the Days of Lot - Uncouth men are using "Tinder" to hook up with as many as 150 women per year, dubbed "Tinderellas" to spread not only disease and unwanted pregnancies, but also broken hearts and lives.
As it is now - 60 years ago, buildings in New York were illuminated at Easter with the cross of Christ. Now, the Hindu goddess of destruction, Kali, is being portrayed in brilliant and colorful light. It's bad enough to ignore God, but to shake our fists at Him in defiance? Are we inviting disaster?
Finally, the pure evil known as ISIS (aka, the Junior Varsity Squad according to our President) has plans to create a global conflict by expanding their influence and terror into Northern Africa, and Europe, to as far away as Australia. They perceive the USA as weak and unable to strategically deter their advance. They may be right.
John brings us up to date on this and more, in a very sobering update entitled "More of the Same".
Has the administration set the stage for fulfillment of the end times scenario where Israel stands alone against the world? Did John Kerry really say that "Death to America" does not really mean that Iran wants to destroy us? Is Obama going to find his mythical climate change unicorn by mandating reduced carbon emissions from coal plants by executive fiat, inevitably driving up energy costs for everyday Americans? Has this master manipulator set us on a collision course with fate, by undermining every foundational tenant upon which our Christian faith rests?
Brian Houston, TD Jakes, Hillsong Church NYC, Carl Lentz and a host of others make the headlines in this week's Prophecy Update as John doubles down and puts the proverbial pedal to the metal in this week's update entitled "Stepping on the Gas".
Are American political leaders playing right into the hands of a regime bent on destroying Israel and America?
Have the Kurds been betrayed by President Obama and Prime Minister Erdogan?
Is the administration turning a blind eye to the horror and deception that is Planned Parenthood?
Is the Third Temple on the verge of being built, setting the stage for the Antichrist to desecrate it and declare himself God?
Are you "Paying Attention" to the developments that are occurring on the world stage that will signal the soon return of the true Messiah?
John is on full throttle this week as he shares his update on the state of our world in this week's message entitled "Pay Attention."
Another week of things converging. Today, a look at economic issues, some issues related to same-sex marriage and polygamy, further analysis of the Iran Nuke Deal, update on the Middle East and a look at the Temple Institute's release, today, on Tish Be'av, of plans for a third temple.
This, without doubt, is one of the more intense Prophecy Updates John has shared. Parental Discretion is advised.
"Caroline Glick is missing Neville Chamberlain. The Yellowstone Caldera, when it blows, will wipe out 2/3 of the US. But a West Coast earthquake, predicted at a 9.2 (100 times stronger than Fukushima) may occur first, wreaking havoc on the US Economy.
Planned Parenthood medical directors are joking about “baby body parts menus.” The US President, obsessed with race, but blind to Islamic Terrorism, is now doing an end run around Congress to ram through an Iranian Nuke Deal that will compromise the entire region. Congress will not get the chance to vote on it before the United Nations considers it on Monday, July 20, 2015.
Could this agreement force Benjamin Netanyahu's hand? Will we wake up tomorrow morning to an onslaught of stories about the Israeli Strike on Iran?
This is a 5-alarm update that should terrify the unbeliever and excite those anticipating the soon return of Christ."
If your vertical alignment is slightly off-center, its time to get it right. We are approaching the point of the fulfillment of all things prophetic.
Strap in...this is going to be one intense ride.
From the drought in California, to an apostate Pope, to the stunning imbalance of support for Israel between the major political parties, John takes us on a whirlwind tour of the issues sweeping across the globe as many turn a blind eye to the real and present dangers facing them. The drought in California is nothing compared to the spiritual famine occurring in the world right now.
Apathy reigns supreme in men's hearts, while the Supreme Being readies His robe to return in judgment.
God has the ability to tame the wildest shrew. He did it for me, He’ll do it for Israel and he can do it for you.
Long before you knew it, the Lord had His hand in your destiny. Join Dr. Randall Smith as he explores God's relationship with you and plan for you in part 5 of 6 messages in his series on the Book of Zechariah at Fellowship Bible Chapel, July 11-12, 2015.
Welcome to Session 4 of Fellowship Bible Chapel's "Zechariah Seminar" with Dr. Randall Smith. The Lord will perform His promises and pardon real repentance, but makes no deal on rejection. He made plain the terms of the days ahead for His people and the world. First, God called his people apart and explained that events to come are not a surprise. Second, God warned His people how to avoid a Dead End. Third, God made plain the terms of Prophetic Truth. Listen, as we join Dr Randall Smith as he teaches from Zechariah in Session Four: "Trust and the Truth".
