End Times

How 'Harry Potter,' 'Twilight' & 'The Walking Dead' Are Paving The Way For The Antichrist

On Saturday’s edition of Understanding the Times, End Times radio broadcaster Jan Markell hosted Eric Barger of “Take a Stand! Ministries,” who warned that occult influences in the culture are paving the way for the Antichrist.

Barger specifically cited Harry Potter, Twilight and The Walking Dead as reasons that the Antichrist may soon materialize and attain global power:

Barger: The occult has now become normal. We have, not just the mummy, Frankenstein, the werewolf, today we have Christians defending Harry Potter. One of the biggest shocks to me when I wrote Entertaining Spirits Unaware and we first began to work on that manuscript and I started talking about it, this is about fifteen years ago when I began speaking about it, was how many Christians —I thought it was a no-brainer — that if Christians read the Bible they would understand that we are not to endorse witchcraft and virtually everything that Deuteronomy 18 says for us to stay away from.

But instead, so many letters came in my direction, I put an addendum in Entertaining Spirits Unaware — a 33,000 word addendum was put in that book to update it — I put in letter after letter that we got from people that started out, ‘I am a Christian but,’ and they’d begin to explain why I was wrong about Harry Potter and why there was nothing wrong with Twilight. Now of course we have The Walking Dead, we have the zombies craze.

This is the stuff that’s desensitizing people, preparing them for the supernatural works of the Antichrist when he stands on planet Earth and fakes being Jesus and the world around us is being conditioned to these things right now. You can hear in my voice the urgency that I have about this because we are watching the entire world be conditioned. God help us that the church that listens is not going to be conditioned about these things.

Markell: You have a huge amen coming from me.

Scott Lively Denies Calling Obama The Antichrist, Admits He Did When Confronted With Audio Of His Comments

During Scott Lively’s interview with Michelangelo Signorile last week, the anti-gay pastor denied ever having said that President Obama is the Antichrist…until Signorile played audio captured by Right Wing Watch of Lively saying exactly that.

Last year, Lively told Rick Wiles of TruNews that the Antichrist “is heading the largest superpower of the world today,” obviously referring to Obama, who he predicted would eliminate “the debts of the world,” bring about “a peace treaty between the Palestinians and the Israelis” and establish “secular humanism” as a global religion.

Later in the Wiles interview, Lively said that gay rights will bring about the End Times and hailed Russia’s Vladimir Putin for “championing the traditional marriage and Christian values regarding the central moral issue of our time,” homosexuality.

But Lively told Signorile that he never referred to Obama as the Antichrist or Putin as a champion of right-wing Christianity: “No I didn’t say that. Oh boy, that’s quite the leap you’re making. No, I’ve never said either of those things. In terms of the Antichrist thing, we need to have a conversation about prophecy and those things for it to make any sense at all, but I did not say that Obama is the Antichrist.”

“Where are you getting this? What’s that from?,” he demanded.

But he eventually conceded that he did in fact call Obama the Antichrist after Signorile played his words back to him. “No, that’s Obama,” Lively said, but then tried to spin it as merely a “hypothetical” discussion of the End Times.

However, Lively was clearly referring to the current leader of the “largest superpower” (Obama) and even suggested that the cancellation of debts will take place in 2015.

Here is audio of Lively’s denial, and admission, from The Michelangelo Signorile Show via The New Civil Rights Movement:

Joel Rosenberg Predicts Imminent Divine Punishment Over Abortion Rights

Joel Rosenberg today repeated his warning that God will soon punish America for legalizing abortion, telling Pat Robertson on the 700 Club that America will be treated more harshly than Nazi Germany and suggesting that Christians who don’t fight abortion are like those who collaborated with the Nazi government.

“If we get to sixty million [abortions], we will have killed ten times more Americans than the Nazis killed of the Jews,” Rosenberg said. “Now we know the judgment that came on Nazi Germany, and we feel like it was correct, it was just. What do we think is going to happen?”

BarbWire: Gay Rights 'Has Its Roots In Hell,' Championed By 'Godless Human Minions Of Satan'

BarbWire columnist Gina Miller is upset about beer companies dropping their support for St. Patrick’s Day parades that discriminate against gays, warning that “the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation.”

She adds that people and companies who have “caved to the homo-fascist pink fist” need to know that “homosexual behavior is depraved behavior” and will always be sinful “no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.” In fact, Miller warns that gay rights laws are part of Obama’s “brutal tyranny” and their “roots in Hell.”

“Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square,” Miller warns. “The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations.”

Erin go Gay, as they say today! In the latest high-profile example of large companies bowing in subservience to the altar of homosexual debauchery, three major brewing corporations have bent to homosexual intimidation and pulled their sponsorship of the New York and Boston St. Patrick’s Day parades. The makers of Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams beers have all caved to the homo-fascist pink fist, while countless conservatives have sworn never to buy those beer brands again.



The militant homosexual activists wrongly declare that this is about “equality.” That is nonsense. Homosexual behavior is depraved behavior, and it should never be put on the same level as the normal, healthy relationship between a man and wife. The only thing to which homosexual behavior is equal is sin, because that’s exactly what it is and what it will always be, no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States.

Many of us are watching the dark clouds of evil that are rolling across America, and we are saying it’s the Lord’s judgment on a nation that has spit in His holy face by using the force of law to expel all vestiges of Him and His Truth from the public square. I firmly believe this is true. I also believe that the rapid, head-spinning empowerment of the radical homosexual movement under Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is part of God’s judgment on this nation. Obama himself is part of God’s judgment. Many times in the Old Testament, we have seen the Lord inspire the enemies of Israel to come against it and defeat it when it turned from the Lord. He has installed wicked rulers to impose brutal tyranny on unrepentant people and nations.



No, it’s not at all the kind of law of America’s foundation. It is a strange law, but not a new one. It’s ancient and has its roots in Hell. The Godless human minions of Satan are aggressively working to use the force of law to mandate perversity all across our land, in all our institutions, government, military and corporations. These three beer makers are just the latest to publicly cave.

There is no doubt that America is on a very dark road, and how bad it’s going to get remains to be seen. We are now being ruled by truly evil people with reprobate minds who have nothing but disdain for the God of all creation. The American people themselves, demonstrating their own moral decay, have voted these leaders into office, although I know that ultimately, it is God in His judgment Who has installed these tyrants to rule over us.

BarbWire: 'A Perfect Type Of The Antichrist Is Barack Obama'

BarbWire columnist Michael Bresciani writes today that gay rights advocates and President Obama are paving the way for the emergence of the Antichrist.

In fact, according to Bresciani, the Antichrist leader during the End Times will be a lot like Obama: "Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama.​"

"Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature​," he writes, warning that Obama is pursuing America's "destruction."

Nowadays, anyone calling out the sin is called a hater of the sinner. The lawless then turn to the law to force acceptance of their lawlessness. It is a vicious cycle that leads to destruction.

If you want to lust for those of your own gender you must be protected by the law to do so, and even the suggestion of someone counseling you to avoid the temptation must be silenced. Several states have adopted laws to stop counseling to change the minds of youngsters who are inclined toward their own sex.

The law of God is being sidestepped by popular trends, PC notions of diversity, and the ‘new morality,’ which is only amorality (disregard of all morality) passing itself off under a new name.

Changing the laws is a means of changing definitions of social institutions to remove from life any borders or parameters that define good and evil.

When all of this reaches its peak we will be ready for the world’s last dictator: a ruler long prophesied to come in the last days. He will be called the “lawless one” (2 Thess 2:8 NAS) according to the Apostle Paul.

A ruler who lives without laws may seem like the perfect non-sequitur until it is revealed that the antichrist changes the laws to fit his own view of right and wrong. Being the incarnation of the Devil himself means that his view is always the exact opposite of God and is always wrong. A perfect type of the antichrist is Barack Obama. He rules, but according to — mis-rule.

Gay marriage and abortion, Obama’s preferred social causes, are antichrist in nature. Then there are his anti-American policies such as coddling our enemies, blocking the recovery of our own natural resources, jumping headfirst into the great global warming hoax, allowing government agencies (IRS) to push his political agenda, and the wasting of the lives of soldiers and public servants without anyone answering to the law (Benghazi).

...

The Bible says that when a nation chooses to ignore its sinfulness, God will not only allow them to go reprobate, but will empower them with rulers who will enable them to succeed in their drive to destruction.

Many of today’s best theologians, preachers and ordinary citizens alike see leaders like Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi as the fulfillment of this Biblical principle.

The first sign that reprobation is making its approach is that behaviors that once made us blush are now celebrated shamelessly. Then we see yet more headlines to confirm that we are well underway in our new, poorly chosen, direction.

BarbWire: Liberal Christians, Non-Christians, 'People Of The World' – Satanic, Satanic, Satanic!

Given Matt Barber’s own penchant for extremely harsh rhetoric, it’s not surprising that his newish website BarbWire has become a home for anti-gay hostility and Religious Right alarmism over the impending death of religious freedom in America.

Today’s offering comes from Gina Miller, who is described as “a conservative Christian political writer and radio/television voice professional.” Miller’s article, “Why Are Christians (Really) the World’s Most Persecuted Group?” was written in response to a column from Middle East Forum that BarbWire had linked to. Its author had argued that Christians are persecuted because Christianity is the world’s biggest religion, it seeks converts, and is a religion of martyrdom. No, Miller says, Satan is the reason Christians are persecuted. And Satan is operating through a lot of channels.

Islam, she says, is Satanic.

Islam is a demonic, militant-political-religious ideology born of the children of Ishmael, and like them, it has greatly proliferated.  It is one of Satan’s premiere deceptions, tyrannically ensnaring countless millions of people….

Those who adhere to Islam naturally have a demonically-inspired hatred for the people of the Lord, but as the Bible says, they hate everyone.  However, it is with the deepest of hatreds that they regard Christians and Jews, because their hatred is Satan’s hatred, and it goes well beyond simple dislike or disagreement on principles.  It goes to the heart of the spiritual essence of the foundational struggle, to the basic forces of darkness and light.

But it’s not just Islam. Every non-Christian religion is Satanic, she says, and so are liberal Christians:

From the beginning of time, Satan and the other fallen angels (demons) have made war against the Lord and His creation.  It is their sole mission to steal, kill and destroy what God has made and to keep as many people as possible from the knowledge of salvation through Jesus.  In this mission, they have heaped deception upon deception for mankind.  They have created countless false doctrines and distractions to mislead and deceive people into taking the path to Hell.  The world’s false religions—all those whose foundation is not solely the Gospel of Christ—lead to one place:  eternal damnation and separation from God.  This includes false, so-called “Christian” religions that deny Christ as the only Way to salvation, and instead, rely on traditions of men and on works to “earn” salvation, something we could never earn.

The frenzied, irrational hatred people of the world have for Christians is inspired by, and based in, Satan’s hatred for God and His people.  It’s a demonic hatred found in people who have rejected the Lord.  Have you ever noticed that there is not the same deep hatred for non-Christians and non-Christian religions?  Satan doesn’t hate his own work; he aggressively promotes and supports it.  Supernatural hatred for Christians and Jews exists because they are God’s people, the real deal, chosen by Him from the foundation of the world to be miraculously reconciled to Him.  We simply remind Satan of his eternal defeat and the fact that his time as “the god of this world” is short and growing to a close.  He is furious in his great loss.

And, of course, supporters of church-state separation (described by Miller as people who want to “eradicate all vestiges of Christianity in America”) are Satanic:

At the same time, as we watch our world marching inexorably toward the horror of the very last days and the period of great tribulation, those of us who put our trust in the Lord must not lose courage or hope.  The Word of the Lord is true, and every bit of it will come to pass.  This is why we see such a feverish effort by satanically-inspired people to eradicate all vestiges of Christianity in America today.  The campaign has its source in the demonic realm.  

Barber himself is no stranger to such rhetoric.  He has said Satan is behind the marriage equality movement and the Obama administration’s support for LGBT equality

Avi Lipkin: Obama Is An Islamo-Communist Plant And The Antichrist's 'Salesman Of The Month'

Remember Avi Lipkin, the right-wing activist who claims President Obama will use Agenda 21 to bring 50-100 million Muslim immigrants to take over America’s national parks and establish Sharia law with the help of the Illuminati and the Free Masons? Well today Lipkin was the special guest on The Dove TV to provide his “high-level expertise on U.S. Middle-East policy.”

Lipkin told host Perry Atkinson that Obama is “either a Communist plant, a Russian plant, which is one of the reasons he would never confront Russia; or, he’s an Islamic plant, in which case he will never go to war against a Muslim country.”

“He said this in his book that he will never go to war against another Muslim country,” Lipkin added, citing a widely circulated but fabricated Obama quote. Lipkin explained that Saudi Arabia will pay the US to take in “50-100 million” Muslim immigrants, warning that “Islam is taking over America.”

He continued: “They’re going to come to the United States and the Muslim president is going to receive them, it’s a horrible situation for the United States in my opinion unless people think that selling the soul of America to the Devil is a good thing.”

Lipkin also laid out his End Times scenario in which countries such as Saudi Arabia collapse and the Antichrist will emerge… “to defeat Islam.” Through the “termination of Islam,” Lipkin says, the Antichrist will bring peace to the world and empower the One World Government.

He also assures us that Obama is not the Antichrist, just the Antichrist’s “salesman of the month.”

But since Lipkin believes that Islam is a satanic religion that worships the Devil, he also believes that this is all God’s doing.

Lipkin: They’re going to blow up the oil wells, Saudi Arabia is going to go down the tubes, the Islamic world is going to go down the tubes and in the end you know God is going to win over Satan, and I say Allah is Satan, so all of these things are very simple: You know, one and one makes two.

Atkinson: So you think that Saudi Arabia is heading towards some kind of civil unrest much like Syria?

Lipkin: Absolutely. Saudi Arabia has 40 percent unemployment and all this tremendous wealth of oil is concentrated in the hands of 6,000 princes of the royal family. But most of the people don’t enjoy the wealth, 40 percent unemployment, there is no industry, the king is not turning Saudi Arabia green, the Shiites in the eastern part of Saudi Arabia are really suffering. I think Saudi Arabia is gearing up for the perfect storm.

It could be that in the end what’s going to happen is it will be the end of Islam because I believe Saudi Arabia will be divided up by the One World Government and the oil wells will be secured by international forces. Otherwise, they will get blown up and the world economy will collapse, and that’s something that the One World Government cannot accept. So your question was about prophecy. I foresee the termination of Islam in the not too distant future.

The Antichrist is not Obama, though he is salesman of the month. I think the Antichrist will come out of the One World Government that is going to defeat Islam and impose their Antichrist on the world after they’ve brought peace and stability into the world. I think we’re in a situation now where we’ll see the eventual collapse of Islam, they are going to the US, in the end I believe they’re only solution will be to convert to Christianity.

Bachmann: American Jews 'Sold Out Israel' To Help Obama; Bible Predicts US Will Turn Against Israel In End Times

Speaking with Family Research Council head Tony Perkins yesterday, Rep. Michele Bachmann warned that President Obama is “threatening Israel,” and by doing so is fulfilling biblical prophecies and bringing about the End Times. The Minnesota congresswoman told Perkins that Obama is pressuring Israel to “give up its land to terrorists” allied with Al Qaeda, which will lead to a “final war, destroying and reducing to rubble Israel.”

“That’s in the natural, I just believe that as believers in Jesus Christ who see the authority of scripture, I believe that the Lord and his strong right arm will have Israel’s back and will be her protector,” Bachmann said. “The question is, will we as the United States cooperate in standing with Israel and blessing Israel, or will we join those nations that come against her? We are definitely on the wrong side. It is jaw dropping, it is stunning, it’s breathtaking.”

The congresswoman was echoing an End Times belief that holds that a massive battle will take place in Israel, triggering the Last Days.

Bachmann also skewered the Jewish community in the US for its wide support for Obama. She said that Obama “was helped enormously by the Jewish community,” who she says care more about supporting Obama than Israel:

The Jewish community gave him their votes, their support, their financial support and as recently as last week, forty-eight Jewish donors who are big contributors to the president wrote a letter to the Democrat [sic] senators in the US Senate to tell them to not advance sanctions against Iran. This is clearly against Israel’s best interest. What has been shocking has been seeing and observing Jewish organizations who it appears have made it their priority to support the political priority and the political ambitions of the president over the best interests of Israel. They sold out Israel.

Bachmann further alleged that “President Obama has allowed Israel to realize its worst nightmare” by “threatening Israel.”

She agreed with Perkins’ claim that Obama is forcing Israel to “surrender,” and said that Israel “couldn’t stand” under a two-state solution.

She said that the Bible predicted Obama’s actions: “The nations of the world will come against Israel and the scripture very specifically says all nations, now for the United States we don’t have that experience until recently under President Obama with the United States not standing with Israel.”

In a previous interview with Perkins, she said that Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry are “calling for actual war and economic war against Israel, or at least suggesting it as such.”

Paranoia-Rama: Obama's Homo Demons, President Satan & Arizona Penis Cakes

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right.

Apparently, Satan is going to install the next president, use gay people to destroy the black community and take over the world to bring about the Last Days. But at least we can enjoy “penis cakes” before the world comes to an end.

5) Obamacare Race War

Just as Ted Nugent isn’t actually sorry for calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel,” the National Rifle Association board member and Republican surrogate also isn’t backing down from his statements likening President Obama to the Nazis.

When conservative talk show host Dennis Miller told Nugent he didn’t buy his Nazi comparison, Nugent insisted that the president is using the IRS and the health care reform law to spark a race war “like the brownshirts.” Media Matters grabbed the clip:

4) Satan Will Put A Witch In The White House

The Trinity Broadcasting Network considers Kim Clement a prophet, and so should you! The TBN host recently prophesied that Satan will “put a witch in the White House” who will advance the demonic spirit of “Jezebel,” and can only be stopped by a socialism-slaying politician.

3) Penis Cakes On The Way

Tea Party Nation head Judson Phillips is aggrieved that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed her state’s ‘right-to-discriminate’ bill, a decision which he believes will lead to “tyranny,” “fascism” and “slavery.” In fact, he believes that bakers will now be forced to bake penis cakes:

Should a devote baker be required to create a cake for a homosexual wedding that has a giant phallic symbol on it or should a baker be required to create pastries for a homosexual wedding in the shape of genitallia [sic]? Or should a photographer be required to photograph a homosexual wedding where the participants decide they want to be nude or engage in sexual behavior?

We’re not sure what sort of weddings Phillips is used to attending, but we wish we had been invited.

2) The World Has Gone Gay

Scott Lively has been on a roll lately after launching a new anti-gay group, insisting that his fight against gay rights is literally a life-or-death battle against Satan. During an interview with Janet Mefferd where he explained why he believes LGBT equality is triggering the coming of the End Times, Lively said that there should be a “revolution” to defeat the socialist “conspiracy” aimed at “homosexualizing the whole world.”

1) Beware Obama’s ‘Homo Demons’

Far-far-right pastor James David Manning is at it again, this time hailing anti-gay leaders in Uganda, Gambia and Nigeria for resisting “this son of Satan Barack Hussein Obama” and his “anti-integrity, anti-life, anti-humanity, anti-universal understanding, anti-DNA” gay rights agenda.

Manning said that the decisions of Jason Collins and Michael Sam to come out of the closet are proof that “Obama has released these demons particularly upon the black males, this homosexual demon, hoping to influence as many black males to subscribe to ideas that are [as] homosexual, perverted, LGBT as possible.”

“Obama has released the homo demons on the black man; look out black woman, a white homo may take your man.” He said that under Obama’s direction, black men “are being scooped up by white homos,” thus destroying the black family.

The white homo is now moving into the black neighborhoods, looking for black men that have been converted into homosexuality. Black woman let me say something to you: You will have a very hard time competing against a white homosexual male, he’s usually got money, a white homo usually has an American Express card, he usually has an opportunity at the theatre, homos love the theatre, they love to go out to dinner parties, they love that kind of a thing. As a black woman you can’t compete not only with the financial strength of a white homo, black sister, this is devastating, black people need to rise up en masse and recognize the utter destruction that Obama is going in to destroy the black family with his homosexual statements and release of demons that he has done.

Lively: Anti-Gay 'Revolution' Needed To Stop Demonic 'Conspiracy' To 'Homosexualize The World'

Scott Lively said yesterday that a global Satanic “conspiracy” is “homosexualizing the world” and only a “revolution” of gay rights opponents can stop it.

In an interview with Religious Right talk show host Janet Mefferd, Lively insisted that gay rights victories are “proof of the conspiracy, we’re talking about the elites represented in the federal judiciary, across the top strata of our society — I don’t think there is really much difference between the Republicans and Democrats at that level — and they are imposing a global socialist agenda on all of us.”

“These federal judges are acting against all legal precedent in favor of this brand new, invented category of human rights; in four thousand years of human rights jurisprudence, sodomy has never been recognized as a human right,” Lively said. “Yet now, not only is it recognized as a human right but it’s trumping legitimate human rights like religious freedom and family values. Nothing short of a revolution is going to stop this.”

“It’s just astonishing how rapidly they are proceeding in homosexualizing the whole world,” he lamented.

Lively called the gay rights movement a demonic push to bring about the Last Days: “This is the moral issue of the End Times, it’s clearly a spiritual phenomenon, in the space of just fifty years this movement has gone from being illegal — homosexuality, homosexual sodomy was illegal in every country of the world except for Sweden which legalized it in in 1938 — and now this tiny group of people, 1 to 2 percent of the population, has more power in the legislatures and the courtrooms of the world than the Christian church does.”

“The most powerful countries of the world have almost completely been given over to the principalities behind this agenda,” Lively added. “Christians really need to recognize that this is spiritual warfare and it cuts right to the heart of what it means to be a human being created in the image of God.”

Lively added that the gay rights movement has moved the world into an “age of apostasy” and anti-gay activists must be ready to “give up our lives if necessary.”

He later called on activists to speak “into the face of the demons that are grabbing a hold of our society and tearing it down” and not to listen to “weenies“ who have fallen for “the lie of the pit of Hell.”

The pastor also praised Uganda’s president for “standing up for the truth” against “the powers of the earth” by signing his country’s new draconian anti-gay law.

Truth In Action Ministries: Grammys Sign Of God's Judgment On America

Truth in Action Ministries spokesmen John Robe and Jerry Newcombe are lashing out at this year’s Grammy Awards show for featuring a mass wedding celebration that included same-sex couples. While discussing the Grammys on Sunday’s edition of Truth That Transforms, Newcombe asked: “How low can we go?”

“It’s as if we’ve gone as far as we can go now,” Rabe said, adding that he was offended that the wedding service included a church background and choir.

Rabe said the ceremony was proof that we’re in “a culture under judgment,” while Newcombe worried that people from around the world will think “Americans are into” gay marriage.

Watch:

Shoebat: America Embracing 'The Spirit Of Antichrist' By Ensuring Rights For Gays, Muslims

Walid Shoebat, one of the conservative media’s favorite anti-Muslim commentators, yesterday posted a six-part series arguing that Turkey will emerge during the End Times as an “Antichrist nation” and may soon invade Egypt.

According to Shoebat, Russia’s support for Syria’s brutal dictatorship — which Shoebat praises — and its plan to “eliminate the Sodomite movement including all mosques,” is proof that Russia will stand up against and fight Turkey and its Islamist allies such as the Muslim Brotherhood during the Last Days.

He adds that the US has been compromised due to its “tolerance to the homosexual agenda and to building mosques” and is now “advancing” the cause of “the spirit of antichrist,” with even American evangelicals joining “the ranks of the devil.”

Today, the Brotherhood is parking in Turkey after being overthrown in Egypt and the Turks will aid the Islamist movement in Egypt to rise against the secularists. The next few years will show this struggle intensify until Turkey invades Egypt. This does not pass without repercussions. Few focus closely to Daniel 11:44, that “news from the north” will trouble the King of the North (Turkey/antichrist).



Relative to current events, the alliance between Russia and secularist Egypt is strengthening, which is increasingly troubling to the Turks. The outcome of this battle between the King of the North (Antichrist/Turkey) and the troublesome news from north of it (Russia) will be a surprise—in verse 45, he (the antichrist) “shall come to his end, with no one to help him”. Russia will again defeat Turkey. History will repeat itself and it will be the Russo-Turkish Wars all over again. Other allies (Ezekiel 28:7-8) which the Bible says are the “most terrible of the nations” will also join in against Turkey (see Ezekiel 30:5, Lydia).

From a biblical perspective, Russia is against the spirit of antichrist while the U.S. is advancing its cause.



It is not new that such false teachers always take the side of the enemies of Christianity; supporting the rebels against Assad is the end of the Christians in Syria.

How is attacking Russia, Syria’s ally calling it “Gog and Magog” serves anyone’s interests but the liberals and the Islamists? What we see in the Middle East is not the end, but the beginning of an end. It is pre-mature to start making proclamations and judgments.



Putin also wants to eliminate the Sodomite movement including all mosques while the U.S. including many in the American church defend such policies of tolerance to the homosexual agenda and to building mosques.



Should Russia import evangelical pastors like New York’s pastor Timothy Keller who says “being gay doesn’t send you to hell”? Does Russia’s Orthodox Christianity have a Rob Bell, kissing up to the sodomites, calls sodomites “passionate disciples of Jesus just like I’m trying to be. So lets [sic] all get together and try to do something about the truly big problems in our world, that I believe would have us ban together and tackle together”?



Why then should my American evangelical brothers join the ranks of the devil? We must then defend Evangelical Christianity from being influenced by the workers of iniquity and work tirelessly to save Christians from death.



Such conservatism is misleading and Protestant nations will likely repeat history and support the Antichrist nation of Turkey in the future—as they do now—and as they did in 1571 during the Battle of Lepanto.

The absence of Muslim-Catholic wars from their awkward interpretations was simple to explain; such struggle was described as the suffering of a “whore” who drinks the blood of saints, while the Muslim was simply “doing God a service”, not realizing that Arabia’s Islam was the vampire who hadn’t had its fill of sanguine Christian blood. I was always astonished; how can killing Catholics serve Allah, the false God of Islam, and also serve the true God of the Bible?

To these Islam was not even on their radar. It mattered little prophetically when I explained how the Bible in Revelation 13:2 was speaking of the greatest threat to Christianity. It was Islam that became this threat (beastly nation) as predicted in Scripture that occupied the region that was prophesied by John: Lion (Babylon), Bear (Persia) and Leopard (Asia Minor).

Paranoia-Rama: Parent-Child Marriages Coming Soon, The Devil's United Nations & Michael Sam Is Aiding The Antichrist

RWW’s Paranoia-Rama takes a look at five of the week’s most absurd conspiracy theories from the Right. 

This week, we learn that NFL prospect Michael Sam helped usher in the reign of the Antichrist by coming out of the closet, although apparently the Devil already controls the United Nations.

5. Satan Behind United Nations

The United Nations released a report this month that is heavily critical of the Roman Catholic Church’s handling of sex abuse cases. Church spokesmen were outraged by the scope of the study. “The range of the report appeared to infuriate the Vatican,” the Washington Post reported. “In blunt language, the committee took particular aim at church stances on sexual orientation, reproductive health and gender equality.”

Austin Ruse of the Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) blamed Satan for the investigation. “Only the Devil could tell children they have a right to sex and abortion,” Ruse said in a message to C-FAM members.

“This committee has basically said that children have a right under this treaty to have sex, to use condoms and to get abortions. And that Church opposition to this is a violation of human rights,” Ruse said. “This Committee actually told the Church that its teaching on homosexuality has caused violence against the same-sex attracted.”

“What these radicals need a good shaking.”

4. Immigrants Will Turn Us Into Slaves

Phyllis Schlafly has been making the rounds on right-wing media to push her claim that Latino immigrants don’t share American values because they are less likely to vote Republican and back a right-wing political agenda. InfoWars host Alex Jones strongly agreed with Schlafly, and warned that immigrants will team up with George Soros to “support literally making those of us that produce their slaves.”

“This takes us back to a democracy where two wolves can vote to eat the sheep for dinner,” Jones said.

3. Michael Sam Helping The Gay Antichrist

Southern Baptist preacher Dwight McKissic is joining other anti-gay activists in criticizing Michael Sam, the University of Missouri defensive end who recently came out of the closet.

McKissic is especially concerned that the likely NFL draft pick will “become the face of the ‘gay rights’ movement that takes us down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah at a record setting pace.” America’s transformation into Sodom, McKissic warns, will bring about the coming of the Antichrist, who he thinks will probably be gay.

2. Google, Gawker Are Persecuting WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily insists that Google is unjustly threatening it for violating the company’s ad policy regarding the use of “derogatory racial or ethnic slurs to refer to an individual or group.” Adam Weinstein at Gawker noted that the right-wing website has published 670 stories on “black mob” violence, while WND editor Joseph Farah offered a less-than-convincing defense of WND’s handling of race issues.

Now Farah is striking back, arguing that Gawker has pretty much ruined the Internet with its “venomous, personal, ad hominem, groundless attack” against him.

“It’s mean-spirited. It’s irresponsible. It’s childish and immature,” Farah writes in an editorial today. “You can see it for yourself, but I would caution you the coarse, vulgar language and name-calling is pretty rough. Don’t blame me. I’m just the target. Visitor beware.” Thanks to Gawker, this “early Internet entrepreneur and pioneer” is “starting to hate the Internet.”

Farah added: “I wonder if people like this Gawker guy would allow his children to read his posts – if he has children or knows any. I guess it would be even more disturbing if he would or does. What are their standards? Do they have any? Is it supposed to be funny?”

1. Gay Marriage Leads To Parent-Child Marriage

Mitch McConnell’s GOP primary challenger Matt Bevin is doing the best he can to link the incumbent senator to a recent federal court ruling that struck down part of Kentucky’s ban on same-sex marriage. The Tea Party-backed candidate told a Religious Right talk show host this week that if same-sex marriage becomes legal, soon parents will be able to marry their children.

Bevin’s campaign spokesman defended his remarks and accused Right Wing Watch of “gross misrepresentation” of the candidate’s comments…which we merely quoted verbatim.

McKissic: Michael Sam Paving The Way For Gay Antichrist

Southern Baptist megachurch pastor Dwight McKissic seems convinced that the Antichrist will be a gay man. And today he tells us that, thanks to Michael Sam, this gay Antichrist is on his way.

Writing in the Black Christian News Network, McKissic warns that Sam will “become the face of the ‘gay rights’ movement that takes us down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah at a record setting pace,” triggering the coming of the Antichrist who “would be a homosexual, or certainly unmarried.”

Fifty years ago, James Brown released a song that became a great source of inspiration, pride, and self-esteem for Black Americans—“Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” I remember it so well. All the kids in my neighborhood sang it with great joy. It became a rallying cry. Bursting out of obscurity into the National Spotlight recently hails Michael Sam saying it loud, “I am gay and I’m proud.”

Will Michael Sam become the face of the “gay rights” movement that takes us down the road to Sodom and Gomorrah at a record setting pace? Mr. Sam has received words of affirmation from President and Mrs. Obama, Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, and a host of others, simply for announcing to the world that he prefers to engage in sexual activity with another male, rather than a female.



John and Paul indicate that the spirit of the Anti-Christ would be unleashed upon the world in the last days (I John 2:18; I Timothy 4:1). Daniel 11:37 tells two interesting, and relevant to this subject matter, characteristics regarding the Anti-Christ:

1. “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers.” In order to embrace same-sex relationships and homosexuality, one has to disregard the God of our fathers. Know that anybody who preaches that homosexuality is acceptable to God is not preaching the God of the Bible. They are disrespecting the God of the Bible and representing the anti-Christ. The notion that gay rights and civil rights are compatible is from the pit of hell. Rev. Bernice King, daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said, deep down in her sanctified soul, she knows that her dad did not die for same-sex marriage rights. Martin Luther King did not sacrifice his life for two football players to get married. The thought of such is a desecration to his legacy.

2. Daniel also reveals that the Anti-Christ would not desire women. A male who does not desire a woman is considered suspect where I came from. I believe that Daniel was telling us that the Anti-Christ would have no desire for women, which may be a subtle way of suggesting that the Anti-Christ would be a homosexual, or certainly unmarried.

According to DL Foster, “The Daniel reference to the sexual nature of the anti-Christ as envisioned by Daniel is telling considering the world’s end time affirmation of homosexual perversion. The word ‘desire’ is drawn from the Hebrew chamad, which points to lust and desire associated with male/female sexuality. Thus, we can make a broad assumption that the anti-Christ will have no sexual desire for women.”

As the saints learn how to live in Sodom, we must take solace in the fact that the Bible accurately predicts that the spirit of Sodom would be prevalent and prominent in the end time. Jesus, John, Paul, and Daniel predicted what we are now seeing.

Swanson: The Beatles Encourage Demonism, Paved The Way For 'Satanic Pagan Orgy' At The Grammy Awards

Religious Right talk show host Kevin Swanson is joining other conservative pundits in trashing the Grammy Awards for becoming, in his words, a “satanic pagan orgy.”

Swanson said that the award show “was a celebration of fornication, twerking, stripping and satanic rituals,” and claimed the mass wedding that included same-sex couples was inspired by Roman Emperor Nero.

Swanson has an explanation for all of this: The Beatles are to blame.

According to Swanson, The Beatles encouraged a “secular, demonic approach to things” in pop culture, and lashed out at the band members as apostates: “It takes apostates to destroy a culture and to undermine a civilization, that’s how you get from ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ to ‘Let’s Do It In The Road.’”

“And by the way, the 2014 Grammys celebrated The Beatles, yet again, and I think that’s important because The Beatles opened things up for us, that’s how we got to the drug culture of 1969 and 1970,” he added.

God Will Punish America For The Grammy Awards & 'Good Luck Charlie'

It seems that Religious Right activists are still fuming about both the Grammy Awards and the inclusion of a same-sex couple on an episode of the Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie.”

One commentator is promising divine retribution for the television events’ inclusion of gay couples, Beyoncé’s dancing and Katy Perry supposedly sacrificing herself to Satan.

The Christian Post’s Larry Tomczak, who last month claimed that Beyoncé is leading girls into sex trafficking, writes:

My longtime friend Dr. Michael Brown reminds us to be merciful and reject self-righteousness as we winsomely reach out to immoral people and those practicing homosexuality. But in loving all gays, we must resist the radical gay agenda. "It is the greatest threat to religious freedom in our generation!" he declares. Undergirding this should be a godly passion and holy hatred for what this agenda is doing to destroy biblical morality, marriage and family in our generation.

Yesterday someone contacted me, mentioning how timely it was that my last commentary on Michelle Obama and Beyoncé came before Queen Bey's opening performance at the 2014 Grammy awards. This woman, whom our first lady commends as a role model, sang "Drunk in Love" while writhing as a stripper and censors bleeped unprintables during her "sexcapade seranade."

Mind you, this presentation wasn't on late-night cable MTV with Miley Cyrus sensual shenanigans but on a mainstream CBS broadcast during family hours to tens of millions across America and abroad.

The show also featured former Christian Katy Perry flaunting her sex in a satanic witchcraft spectacle with fire, horned men and a sacrificial offering to ... ?

Then Macklemore belted out his gay anthem, "Same Love," as closet lesbian Queen Latifah officiated over a ceremony where same-sex marriages were celebrated.

This annual broadcast is said to represent the very best music has to offer to the world. It also reveals the gravity of the situation we face in our culture today.

That same day, the Disney Channel's kid show Good Luck Charlie introduced two lesbian moms for our children, and later, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt, an open homosexual, announced his working with lesbian Ellen DeGeneres for a new lesbian-themed comedy called One Big Happy for network TV.

Let's face it: America is in deep trouble and in desperate need of spiritual awakening. Our nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, has flourished for three centuries but now is teetering on the precipice. Time is of the essence. We must feel what God feels regarding unfaithfulness to His dictates on sexuality and marriage while praying, proclaiming the gospel and presenting a biblical model for the world to see.

Buster Wilson: Target Data Breach Is God's Wrath For Kmart Joe Boxer Ad

Former American Family Association talk show host Buster Wilson implied on Twitter today that the massive Target data breach was divine punishment for an ad…made by one of its competitors.

The “unseemly” commercial Wilson seems to be referencing is Kmart’s Joe Boxer ad, which upset the AFA so much that its OneMillionMoms affiliate organized a campaign against it.

We’re not exactly sure why Wilson thinks God would punish millions of Target customers over a Kmart ad, but such rants are what we’ve come to expect from the ex-AFA pundit.

Renew America: Gay Marriage Is A Satanic Plot To Murder Christians

Renew America columnist Gina Miller today warns that gay marriage is a push by Satan himself to outlaw Christianity and ensure that “Christians here in America will be in danger of state-sanctioned murder for their beliefs.”

Sadly, this probably isn’t the craziest thing ever published by Renew America.

For years now, many of us have been warning America that freedoms of religion, speech, conscience and association and homosexual "rights" cannot coexist; they are by nature mutually exclusive. This is becoming clearer by the minute, as the radical homosexual movement has taken super flight under the ever-darkening reign of the pro-homosexual Barack Obama (or whatever his name is).

The homosexual movement is part of a larger push toward tyranny that has its roots in the spirit realm. Ephesians 6:12 clearly spells out the real battle:

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

While we certainly have human enemies aligned against us, our true enemies are Satan, his demons and the spiritual wickedness of those in places of great power. As Christians, we have read the end-times prophecies, and we know the warnings Jesus gave us about how awful things will become in the last days. Satan is working feverishly to fully cement his terrible, earthly rule and bring those hellish days to fruition.

The Godless communists (or fascists, if you prefer) are using the homosexual agenda to work toward eradicating Christian opposition to their plans, which are Satan's plans. If you know your Bible, then you know that Christianity is destined to be outlawed. We are moving steadily toward a time when Christians here in America will be in danger of state-sanctioned murder for their beliefs. If you think I exaggerate, then you don't know what God has already told us, or perhaps you mistakenly believe that the United States is the exception, that it can't happen here. Christians throughout the world have always been persecuted, but here in the United States, we have enjoyed unparalleled protection and freedom during the existence of our nation. That protection is quickly being eroded, and the homosexuals are used as pawns in this process.



Yes, this is a steeply uphill battle, but we should never quit fighting it. The prince of the power of the air, Satan, is successfully crafting a deceptively pro-homosexual atmosphere in our nation, from the media, to entertainment, to corporations and all major institutions. This causes many people to fear standing in opposition to the militant homosexual agenda and its activists, because of their track record of hostility, even violence, toward those who oppose them. Many conservative groups and churches fear the vicious vitriol of homosexuals and their supporters in our twisted culture, and that's really a shame. Fear is a debilitating force if we give it sway over us.

Many conservative groups and churches fear the vicious vitriol of homosexuals and their supporters in our twisted culture, and that's really a shame. Fear is a debilitating force if we give it sway over us.

We must stand, as much as ever, against this degenerate and tyrannical homosexual movement, and in so doing, we must not lose sight of the real nature of the battle. It's a spiritual battle, and we must approach it as such, putting on the full armor of God, as best we can, if we are to have any hope of turning back this truly evil tide.

Hagee: Jews Will Make End Times Deal With The Antichrist, 9/11 Was God's Judgment

Trinity Broadcasting Network hosted a Praise The Lord prophecy special this month, featuring a number of speakers including televangelist John Hagee. The right-wing pastor explained that during the End Times, the Jewish people will not accept Jesus as the Messiah until he returns “because they have just— three-and-a-half years or seven-years before — made a deal with the Antichrist, who is the false messiah, and they are extremely skeptical of that.”

David Reagan, another Christian Zionist preacher, said the Jewish people will experience a “horrible holocaust” and the vast majority will die during the End Times: “Two-thirds of them are going to die and that one-third that is left at the end is going to finally come to the end of themselves.”

Hagee also said that the September 11, 2001 attacks were “the judgment of God on our country” since America did “not obey the law of God.”

Later in the program, Hagee claimed the 2008 financial crisis was divine retribution.

Christian Post Columnist: God Is Punishing America Through The Obama Presidency

Writing today in the Christian Post’s “Prophecy and the News” blog, Michael Bresciani warns that America will soon face divine punishment for abortion rights, homosexuality, pornography and “Godless education.”

In fact, according to Bresciani, we are already reaping God’s judgment through the “amateurish and irresponsible handling of America’s economy by Barack Obama.”

What we know is that America has not been listening to the messages of warnings from her best voices. What we should know is that God is not so hard of hearing.

God hears the cries of the nearly sixty million slaughtered unborn human beings who were discarded like so much useless refuse. He hears the cries of those distraught with the breaking down of foundational principles like marriage between one man and one woman. He hears the outcry against the full acceptance and coddling of perversions and porn.

He has done today, what he did in the ancient times, he has measured out a three pronged appeal over a sufficient amount of time (a generation) and he is now entering into stage three. When the three appeals are finished, all that is left is judgment or a chance for us to repent and set the record straight once again. It is the last gas on this road before our little journey comes to an inglorious ending.



Have we used our heads in promoting homosexuality as normal and same sex marriage as good for the nation? Is teaching our children that everything came from nothing using our heads? Is pushing every mention of God out of our schools, homes, public places and our conscience a reasonable thing?



The biblical pattern of Israel and many of the surrounding nations is that after being warned by prophets and faithful voices that appeal to the head and heart; the situation around them will begin changing. The bible says God will use everything we trust, besides him, to draw our attention.

Child bearing, the nuisance of calamities and natural disasters, the interventions and intrusions of an enemy, warfare, disease and pestilence, and finally it comes down to the very everyday necessities of life, or as the bible says – the ‘staff of bread.’

The amateurish and irresponsible handling of America’s economy by Barack Obama is the entrance of Gods [sic] answer to what we have already collectively allowed to enter our hearts and minds.

If we make a prey of our childrens [sic] lives with the slaughter of sixty million un-born little ones - is there no price to pay?

If we make prey of our childrens [sic] minds, with gross Godless education, if we subject them to porn, prurience and perversion, God will ask us to pick up the tab. We will not escape like a band of mischievous kids pulling a trick on Halloween night and running away.
