Prophecy Update: Apostasy: A sign of the End Times 4/20/2022
The update this week is going to focus on apostasy. The last days are characterized by a falling away from the faith. To fall away means that a church must believe something of the truth before they fall away. Faithlessness would be a key word to describing apostasy. False prophets and false teachers have always attacked Israel and the Church. What is the difference today?
The difference today regarding apostasy revolves around the fulfillment of other prophecies. Israel is back in the land, the world is heading towards a one-world government, technology allows for a world currency and mark of the beast; these are just a few of the end times prophecies that the Word of God teaches! Prophesies regarding the last days apostasies support finding substitutes to Jesus and God! Jesus warned us that this would happen in the last days. Many will come in the name of Jesus but will lead the people astray. Here are three verses that describe the problem:
“Why then has this people, Jerusalem, Turned away in continual apostasy? They hold fast to deceit, They refuse to return.”
So My people are bent on turning from Me. Though they call them to the One on high,
None at all exalts Him.
“But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons.”
1 Timothy 4:1
One of the apostasies prevalent in our culture pushes unity regardless of what the truth demands. Interfaith dialogue pushes acceptance over truth. This is a demonic movement. Maybe you have seen the bumper sticker COEXIST? “One common version of the bumper sticker spells “COEXIST” using an Islamic crescent moon for the “C”, a peace sign for the “O”, the Hindu Om symbol for the “E”, a Star of David for the “X”, a pentacle for the dot of the “I”, a yin-yang symbol for the “S”, and a Christian cross for the “T”. en.wikipedia.org
Anyone with this on his or her bumper pushes the last days apostasy. Apostasy denies that Jesus is God, Jesus is the only way, and Jesus is coming back. Muslims are complaining about their participation with interfaith dialogue!
“An April 5, 2022 article posted on Ansarollah.com, the official website for the Yemen-based Iran-backed Shi’ite militias, i.e. the Houthis, called interfaith dialogue a “misleading headline” and argued that both Christians and Jews should convert to Islam as it is an extension of their own religions. The article, titled ‘The Jews.. Arrogance and Racism,” also argued that the Jews had refused to convert to Islam because of their arrogance and because they disapproved of the Prophet Muhammad’s being Arab.” memri.org
Muslims have always used interfaith dialogue to confuse and redefine Christianity and push hatred of Jews. The goal is to make everyone bow to Allah. How can Christians fall to this? I don’t mind talking to anyone about my faith so they can hear that Jesus is the only way. Once the interfaith dialogue accepts everyone’s truth as his or her truth, the game is over. Christians enter these dialogues for two different reasons. To either share the gospel or pervert the gospel.
“Shock: Americans ditch biblical worldview for ‘fake Christianity’: American Christianity has fallen. Thanks to cultural corrosion and a lack of biblical literacy, a new “fake Christianity” has raked the dry ground of the American church. This counterfeit religion is moralistic therapeutic deism, a worldview that has quickly gained prominence and given many Americans a theology that looks nothing like historical Christianity, despite what they may claim.” wnd.com
Fake Christianity builds on the premise that we need to get along with everyone. That is not what Jesus taught us. Jesus said that he came to bring a sword and not peace. (Matt.10:34) The false churches bring in anyone so they can show that they are tolerant. One church brought in a drag queen, others ask immoral people come and teach same sex marriage etc.
“Most Americans, Many Christians Don’t Believe Jesus Existed before Being Born: A new study from Lifeway Research found that most Americans believe that Jesus was born in Bethlehem more than 2,000 years ago, but less than half believe that Jesus existed prior to being born on that first Christmas.” christianheadlines.com
How sad it is that many professing Christians do not believe or are not confident to say Jesus is God and has always existed.
“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”
“Enemies Within the Church’ a new video teaches that some Christian Institutions are Marxist, it names Southern Baptist Church leaders such as J.D. Grear and Andy Stanley. I watched the documentary film “Enemies Within the Church” two times last week. It’s been making waves in the evangelical community for its bold claims about the pervasive presence of Marxist ideas within the American church.
“You need to watch this documentary. Its central message sounds a clear and necessary alarm that today’s evangelicals (leaders and lay persons alike) urgently need to hear and heed. It is a two-hour video presenting undeniable evidence that influential forces within the church have been (and still are) working hard to advance an agenda that is rooted in neo-Marxism, overlaid with identity politics, and peppered with postmodern jargon. In other words, countless Christians are being force-fed an ideology that comes from the world, not from Scripture. It is being pushed in our seminaries and churches with tactics (and a lot of financing) taken from secular left-wing sources.” teampyro.blogspot.com
Alongside the false teaching of Marxism is one of the great apostasies of our day Chrislam. Chrislam unites Muslims and Christians together. Syncretism is the act of uniting two religions that do not mix. The Chrislam movement pushes that the Church replaced Israel. Here is an example from my life.
“The Crescent Through the Eyes of the Cross: Insights from an Arab Christian..” A book that I read and previewed is an example of false teachers coming among the churches. The author of this book wanted Christians to become anti-Semitic, believe falsely about the church, Israel, Jesus, and Mary. It was painful to read and yet it was heralded by many Christians you think you should be able to trust. One author I warned people against is Rick Warren. He is an advocate of the Chrislam movement. Yet, many people loved Rick Warren and pushed his books. Here are a few headlines I found about Chrislam:
“Pope Francis dismisses ‘heresy’ charges for his commitment to Christian-Muslim dialogue.”
“Chrislam: How Missionaries are Promoting an Islamized Gospel.”
“Shocking! “Chrislam”Heresy Sweeping Churches in 26 States!!”
“New accusations connect Rick Warren with Chrislam.”
“In 2009, Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Orange County California, addressed the convention of the Islamic Society of North America. Warren stated that Muslims and Christians must work together to combat stereotypes, promote peace and freedom, and solve global problems. Christians and Muslims – faith mates, soul mates and now work mates!! Chrislam!! Quote of the Day: “Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.” – Rick Warren, one of the main signers of the Yale Covenant For Islam and Christian Unity….” kristiann1.com
This is an example of interfaith dialogue that has resulted in false teaching and apostasy. It has also led to the Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel campaign. “The movement to Boycott, Divest from, and Sanction (BDS) the Jewish state is anti-Semitic, plain and simple. Having failed to destroy Israel by traditional methods of war and terrorism, Israel’s enemies devised a new plan. They would target Israel’s economy with boycotts, divestment, and sanctions.” cufi.org
I have written on and studied the movement in churches to convince Christians that Israel is no longer in the plan of God. This movement is called ‘Replacement Theology.’ Alongside the Marxist movement in churches comes the desire to destroy Israel. Why? Satan knows that he has to destroy Israel to keep Jesus from coming back. Satan knows scriptural promises regarding Israel more than most Christians who have dismissed Israel.
“A total of ten major U.S. denominations now materially participating, to some degree, in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which aims to hold Israel accountable to international law. These are the Alliance of Baptists, Church of the United Brethren in Christ, Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Mennonite Church USA, Presbyterian Church (USA), Roman Catholic Church, Unitarian Universalist Association, United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, as well as the World Communion of Reformed Churches.” wrmea.org
Jews around the world have recognized that Evangelicals are the greatest support for Israel in the United States and around the world. This is a great opportunity to witness to Jews about their messiah Jesus. Few churches have taken the opportunity. Yet, here is the testimony of one rabbi:
“I deeply appreciate Christian support for Israel. Yet I know that the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) campaign against Israel is being presented to young evangelicals as theologically and morally correct. I believe it is neither: It is a corruption of the very Bible that Jews and Christians hold sacred and a political sham helping no one and harming many. In the end, it is just an exercise in narcissistic self-love and delusion.” jta.org
Our nation has fallen to Satan’s plan to curse Israel. Our congress, supreme court, federal courts, executive branch, and governorships are infected with Satan’s plan to destroy Israel. It is a two for one deal for Satan, if he can convince churches to be anti-Semitic he can destroy the church and Israel at the same time. Thank God for good churches who love Jesus as the greatest Jew who ever lived, who is God Himself, and the Savior of Israel and the world. Pray that we fulfill the great commission in our lifetime so we can see Jesus come back and set up His kingdom!
Thank you for your support and prayers for this ministry, we really appreciate you!
