FEATURED ARTICLE

When Deeds Become Doctrine - Pete Garcia http://www.omegaletter.com/articles/articles.asp?ArticleID=8096


In a recent Bible study at church, I was going through the Seven Letters to
the Seven Churches, when a fellow participant, challenged my
understanding of the term 'Nicolaitan'. Challenged may be putting it a bit
gently. He said that my particular interpretation of it, was "dangerous".
Knowing this man had Amillennial/Preterist leanings, I asked him, 'what
makes it dangerous?' When I think dangerous, I think of Jonestown and
cyanide laced, purple Kool-Aid. I don't think my interpretation of the term
'Nicolaitan' falls in the realm of dangerous.
But not one to back down from a challenge, or even shrug off the notion
that I could be wrong in my understanding, I did what every good Berean
does, and researched it. What I found, was not much more than what I
already knew. The most popular explanation, was that the Nicolaitan's
were a small heretical sect, who promoted licentious living and sexual
immorality. And while I do believe there was in fact, a sect doing just those
things at the end of the first century, I don't believe that is the end of the
story.

I explained in that Bible Study, that there was two different views on the
meaning and understanding of the word 'Nicolaitan'. Even using my
Scofield Reference Bible, the Nicolaitans were described as being a
heretical group who proclaimed to be Christian, yet lived and promoted
licentiousness (eating foods sacrificed to idols and sexual immorality).
Then I included my own take on this, by utilizing the Greek compound of
the word itself, Nikos-power, and Laos, the people, to conclude that this
had to do with the establishment of a clerical class of church leaders, over
the laity.
The exchange became slightly heated, but in the end, the point I was trying
to make from the very beginning, was that what had been in the letter to
the church at Ephesus, the 'deeds of the Nicolaitans', had by the letter of
the Pergamos church, become the 'doctrine of the Nicolaitans'.
Now, I don't discount the more traditional view of the term. Many a good
scholar who I deeply respect, hold to that view. In fact, I think there is an
excellent read on this at the SpiritandTruth.org website.
But at the end of that article, they do include a short synapsis of the view I
also hold too in that, it was the beginning and formation of what we would
call a clerical class who over time, began to wield increasing power and
control over the laity.
Those who discount the historic witness to an actual sect known as the
Nicolaitans12 see the meaning of the name as being a key to
understanding their errant teaching. The meaning of the Greek is "rulers of
the people." This meaning may imply that this was an attempt to divide and
make an unnatural distinction between the clergy and laity, creating a
division in which the clergy exercised rulership over the laity. Certainly,
elders have the biblical authority to determine the policy of the local
church. But the authority described here probably went much further than
the issues in the local church and may have extended to the personal lives
of the members.13
If this is the Nicolaitan error, then one only need look at the top-heavy
ecclesiastical structures which characterize much of Christendom
throughout history to see the sour fruit of such teaching. This is one of
many reasons why the doctrine of the priesthood of the believer (2Cor. 3:6;
6:4; 1Pe. 2:5, 9; Rev. 1:6+; 5:10+; 20:6+) is so important for the saints of
every age.14

If what I lack in Scripture and even in the mixed testimony of the early
church fathers (Irenaeus and Hippolytus said Nicholas was a heretic,
Clement of Alexandria and Jerome claimed he was not) I make up for in
other ways, namely history. Aside from the precious little that Scripture
does make mention of in their deeds,
But this you have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also
hate. (Rev. 2:6)
He does again, by making mention a second time by what had now
become, doctrine,
But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who
hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block
before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit
sexual immorality. 15 Thus you also have those who hold the doctrine of
the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. (Rev. 2:14-15)
Assessment
A few things jump out at me here in these two passages. The first, is that
even though these churches co-existed at the same time, in one place,
there was deeds, and in another, there was doctrine. If Revelation was
written in AD65, as many Preterists would have you believe, you'd think
that one of the other Apostles would have spoken out against this particular
sect, in part, because Jesus hates their deeds so much, that He calls them
out by name. If Revelation was written in AD95-96 as I believe it was, then
John was still alive and wrote his Gospel account and three Epistles within
a few short years of receiving the Revelation (presumably living and
familiar with all these churches personally), and would have addressed
these in his epistles...yet he doesn't.
Second, is that in the letter to the church at Pergamos, Christ did not say
that the doctrine of the Nicolaitans was the same thing as the doctrine of
Balaam, even though they are in close proximity to each other in verse
structure. If they were the same thing, why repeat Himself? If they were
synonymous, why not just say...the "doctrines of Balaam and the
Nicolaitans"? But because He does separate them, I think He is
addressing something else that is going on that are different from each
other, which even John himself may not have been aware of since his
imprisonment and ultimately his abandonment to the isle of Patmos.
One more thought on these two verses and the historical accounts. The
strongest arguments for simply writing the Nicolaitans off as some sort of

weird, heretical sex cult comes from the Early Church Father testimonies
about them. As I mentioned earlier, there was mixed reviews on that as
well. The going theory is that, the Nicolaitans were a particular offshoot of
one of the seven deacons that were brought into the ministry (Acts 6:5) by
the Apostles, by the name of Nicholas.
But what they wrote was not inspired like our Scriptures were inspired,
even though many of them were Godly men. At times, even these Godly
men disagreed with each other and what we know now, in regards to
doctrine. But they are called here as historical witnesses, considering their
proximity to the life and times of Jesus's earthly ministry and the Apostles.
The major advantage you and I have over them, is that twenty centuries
have since played out.
We've seen history unfold and we've seen the church change and evolve
into what it is today. We saw the rise of Replacement Theology through
the first three centuries of the church. We saw the rise and formation of
the Roman Catholic Church from the days of Constantine. We saw the
Dark Ages when the Holy Roman Empire was established and the power
and corruption set in that dominated most of Europe and the
Mediterranean. We saw the Protestant Reformation, and the birthing of
numerous Protestant Denominations out of it. We saw the great spiritual
revivals during the First and Second Great Awakenings. Unfortunately,
we've also seen the rise of clerical classes who have continually perverted
the word of God, and abused their power over the lay-people in each era.
Conclusion
So while I'll encourage you, the reader, to do your own homework and
come to your own conclusions on this topic, I think I'm on safe ground in
my understanding. Were the Nicolaitans a sect of people in whom their
deeds and doctrines, Christ hated? Clearly yes. Was that the only
application we can take from that? I believe, no.
I'm sure there were MANY heretical sects during that same time period,
who were busy about either perverting the grace of God, or busy denying
the deity of Christ (Gnostics), or busy introducing the Law back into the
Church (Judaizers'), to only keep the things Christ hates to a list of one.
Seriously, historical accounts are REPLETE with charges against various
groups and persons for introducing heretical and apostate teachings into
the body of Christ...so why only single out one sect?
For example, if the Bible were being written today, it would be equivalent to

saying that Christ only hated the deeds and doctrines of the Westboro
Baptist Church. Yes, they are repulsive, but they are only one, tiny group
who influence few. Yet, there are many larger groups leading many more
people into an eternal hell through false teachings, such as the Emergent
Church movement (blending eastern mysticism into Christianity), Hebrew
Roots (mixing the law back into grace), or more traditional cults like
Mormonism or Jehovah Witnesses, who've led tens of millions blindly into
the gates of hell by denying the deity of Christ and salvation by grace
through faith.
Who is doing more damage, Westboro Baptist, or these other groups?
Secondarily, groups like the Nicolaitans, were relatively easy to spot,
because of the nature of what they taught. If eating things sacrificed to
idols and sexual immorality was in fact, their gig, that is harder to hide than
say, twisting the truth a little so as to promote a certain belief that runs
counter to Scripture. Remember;
''Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between what
is right and wrong; rather, it is the difference between right and almost
right. And the difference between truth and error is not a chasm, but a
razor's edge.'' (Spurgeon/Murray)
I think the larger ramifications that Christ was addressing here in naming
the Nicolaitans, primarily lies in their name, since their deeds and doctrines
aren't clearly identified for us in Scripture. Sexual immorality and eating
things offered to idols were already addressed and linked to both Balaam
and to Jezebel (Rev. 2:20). Furthermore, what was initially commended by
Christ to the church at Ephesus, was that they 'tested' those who said they
were Apostles, but lied. Even then, men were already pretending to be
Apostles so that they could presumably yield some kind of spiritual
authority over other believers.
So we are clear on what Scripture actually teaches, as born again
believers;
*We are sealed by the Holy Spirit, and have a direct connection to the
throne room of God. (Eph. 1:13-14, Hebrews 4:16)
*That we should call no man 'father' (Matt. 23:9) -as in the form of religious
reverence
*That there is only ONE Mediator between God and Man, and that is the
Man Christ Jesus. (1 Tim 2:5)
*That we are a Priesthood of Believers, a Royal Generation. (1 Peter 2:9)

Ultimately, we don't need to go through other men to have a connection


with God, it is open and available to anyone and everyone who seeks Him
out.
So out of the two interpretations, which is more appropriate for what Christ
would address?
One view, which only addresses the deeds and doctrine of one sect, or the
latter view, which addresses the potential and eventuality, that power
corrupts, and men would come to use this new found faith in order to claim
power and authority for themselves over other people. Remember, that the
sternest, harshest rebukes by Christ to anyone were reserved to the
Pharisees and Sadducees, who pretending to be wise, wielded their
spiritual authority over everyone else. (See Matthew 23) Furthermore, of
false teachers...
Jesus warned of them. Matt. 24:4-5; Rev. 2:6, 14-15
Paul warned of them. Acts 20:28-31; 2 Tim. 2:15-19; 3:1-8
Peter warned of them. 2 Peter 2
Jude warned of them. Jude 1:1-19
John warned of them. 1 John 1:18-22; 2 John 1:7-11
It seems to be a fairly common theme throughout the Bible in that, false
teachers would come in, bringing in seducing doctrines to lure people away
from the grace of God. Could they have used sex and licentiousness to
lure people away? Sure. But you need only twist the truth a little, to
change it entirely.
Which has history seen play out innumerable times? If one were to turn to
Foxe's Book of Martyrs, or other historical documents, you'd see that the
Roman Catholic Church alone, killed FAR more Christians than pagan
Romans ever did...and they did it through the clerical power structure they
created, in order to give themselves authority over the laity, and even kings
and kingdoms. Even more relevant to even that is what is tolerated in one
generation, becomes the norm in the next. What is deeds in one place and
time, becomes the doctrine in the next.
The Roman Papacy didn't just appear overnight. It took time and it took
the incremental introduction of leaven and false teachings to cultivate and
shape that power over hundreds of years. This is not simply to pick on the

Roman Catholic Church either, because every faith structure (Christian or


otherwise), develops their own clerical classes to lead them. Look at Shiite
Islam, who has the Ayatollah today or the Buddhists with the Dalai Lama.
Wanting power and control is part and parcel with the human condition. In
these letters, Christ was warning us of that.
For me, I know those churches not only represented seven real churches
there in Asia Minor at the end of the first century, but also spoke to the
seven epochs that the churches making up greater Christendom would
transition through over two-thousand years. Why is that? Because in each
of the letters, Jesus concludes with a challenge meant to have application
to everyone .... "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the
churches."

Iran Deal: When Will Israel Go to War? - Joel B. Pollak http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/06/iran-deal-when-willisrael-go-to-war/


If the Iran deal guarantees war-as argued by a former adviser to Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu-then the question is when.
It is clear that Israel has preserved its options of self-defense; it is equally
clear that it has legal justification for war against Iran, given Iran's constant
threats to destroy the Jewish state, its terror attacks against Israeli targets
worldwide, and its arming of terror groups in Gaza and Lebanon.
Still, the question of when Israel will attack Iran-and at this stage, it is clear
the U.S. will not-depends on four key factors.
Iran's capabilities. Iran is still relatively weak. It has no significant air
defenses, its economy is struggling, and its forces are tied down in regional
wars. Over time, however, Iran will become much stronger. Sanctions relief
will provide cash and armaments, which Iran will also provide to Hezbollah
and Hamas (or other Palestinian groups). New Russian S-300 surface-toair missiles will complicate any attack, and Iran may soon have a ballistic
missile deterrent. This factor favors an attack very soon-perhaps even
before the Iran deal can go into effect.
Israel's capabilities. Though Israel has a very effective deterrent, in the

form of nuclear submarines, Israel has very limited capacity to launch an


attack against Iran. Iran's nuclear facilities are scattered, hidden, and
buried, and the possible flight times and paths present great logistical
difficulties. However, Israel's capabilities tend to increase rapidly over timeas they have in the area of missile defense, which has helped it minimize
rocket threats from Gaza and Lebanon. This factor favors an attack on Iran
later-though not too late.
Diplomatic context. Israel is always relatively isolated in the world, which
means that its wars are always short-i.e. they last until the UN imposes a
cease-fire. Against Iran, Israel may be even more isolated (as President
Barack Obama implied Wednesday). Therefore any war with Iran would
have to be overwhelmingly effective and one-sided in Israel's favor. That
favors a surprise attack and possibly even a non-conventional attack, or
one using hitherto unknown weapons. It also means Israel might wait until
after the U.S. election in 2016 to strike.
Targets. A war with Iran would have at least three fronts. One would be the
set of targets in Iran itself. Another would be the battle against Iran's terror
proxies on Israel's borders (including, now, the Syrian frontier). The third
would be global, as Iran attacked Israeli and Jewish targets. Israel might
choose to attack Hezbollah first (and Hamas, perhaps with Egyptian help)
before targeting Iran, removing Iran's major deterrent. Alternatively, it might
go beyond an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities and try to target the regime
itself in a "decapitation" strike.

Israel is working at speed to convert Boeing 767


into a long-flight refueling tanker http://www.debka.com/article/24799/Israel-is-working-at-speed-to-convertBoeing-767-into-a-long-flight-refueling-tanker
US defense and air industry sources report that the Israeli Air Force may
give up on the US Boeing's KC-46A Pegasus as its future refueling tanker
for long-range flights because of delays in its delivery. Israel had first
planned to take the Pegasus to replace its converted Boeing 707 when
delivery was first to the US Air Force was scheduled for August 2017. But
this week, the company put the date back by another eight months and the

price increased by half a billion dollars.


American sources point out that if Israel wants to retain the option of
attacking Iran's nuclear facilities when Barack Obama exits the White
House in January 2017, it can't wait for the brand-new US Pegasus tanker,
which doubles as a military transport plane, to come off the Boeing
production line and be delivered to its air force. The Boeing 707 in current
service, after a multibillion investment in its conversion to a long-flight
refueling tanker, no longer meets the fluctuating conditions in the Middle
East. Work is therefore going ahead on the conversion of the Boeing 767
as its replacement.
On July 22, debkafile's military sources revealed a mammoth transaction
for Iran to purchase Russian UL78 MK1 (Midas) tankers with a range of
7,300km. (The distance from Iran to Israel is 1,200km). Each tanker is
capable of spontaneously feeding 6-8 fighter craft.
This purchase represented Tehran's aspiration - not just to draw level with
Israel but to outdo its air force in range and fueling capability. This
transaction no doubt spurred the decision by Israel's defense chiefs to go
ahead on its own project, instead of waiting for the American KC-46A to
become available.
Israel Aerospace Industries [IAI] is therefore working at top speed on the
Boeing 767, a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner with a range
of 7,000 to 11,000 km. The converted aircraft will be designated 767200ER MRTT.
In an interview published by the German newspaper Der Spiegel on Aug.
8, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said: "Ultimately it is very clear, one
way or another, Iran's military nuclear program must be stopped. We will
act in any way, including taking military action, and are not willing to
tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. We prefer that this be done by means of
sanctions, but in the end, Israel should be able to defend itself."

Russian Warships Dock In Iran for War Training Adam Kredo http://freebeacon.com/national-security/russian-warships-dock-in-iran-for-

war-training/
Iranian military leader: 'Only the dead body of the American troops realizes
the power of' Iran
Two Russian warships have docked in northern Iran for a series of naval
training exercises with the Islamic Republic, according to Persian-language
reports translated by the CIA's Open Source Center.
The two Russian ships docked in Iran's Anzali port on Sunday and will hold
"joint naval exercises during the three-day stay of the warships in Iran,"
according to a Persian-language report in Iran's state-controlled Fars News
Agency.
"The [Russian] warships, Volgodonsk and Makhachkala docked in Anzali
Port [near the Caspian Sea], in the fourth naval zone, on the afternoon of 9
August," the report says.
The war exercises come just weeks after Iran and global powers inked a
nuclear accord that will provide Iran with billions of dollars in sanctions
relief in return for slight restrictions on the country's nuclear program.
Russian and Iran have grown close in recent years, with delegations from
each country regularly visiting one another to ink arms deals and other
agreements aimed at strengthening Iran's nuclear program.
Russia and Iran agreed earlier this year to begin construction on several
new nuclear power plants. Russia has also agreed to sell Iran a
controversial advanced missile defense system that can prevent attacks by
Western powers.
The Russian fleet docked in Iran's port "carrying a message of 'peace and
friendship,'" according to Iranian officials quoted by Fars. The fleet was
"welcomed by Iranian naval commanders and staff."
The Russian commander of the fleet is scheduled to hold meetings with
"local political and military officials" in Iran's northern provinces, according
to Fars.
Levan Jagarian, Russia's ambassador to Tehran, reportedly attended the
docking ceremony and called for "for boosting mutual ties between the two
countries in various fields," according to the report.
The two nations went on to say that "expanding bilateral economic,

political, and military cooperation is among the priorities of the visit."


A Russian fleet also docked in northern Iran in October.
Last week, a senior Iranian naval commander warned the United States
against ever taking military action on Iranian interests, claiming that the
response would be "unpredictably strong."
"The western media are mocking at the U.S. for speaking of 'on the table
options (against Iran)' because the U.S. always utters some words without
the ability to materialize them," Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Naval
Commander Ali Fadavi was quoted as saying by the country's state-run
press.
Iran is "ready to give such a powerful response to the slightest move of the
U.S. that it won't be able to make any other moves," Fadavi was quoted as
saying.
The military leader went on to claim that "Iranian Armed Forces are now at
the highest level of preparedness" and that "only the dead body of the
American troops realizes the power of the Islamic Revolution.
Michael Rubin, a former Pentagon adviser and expert on rogue regimes,
said the Obama administration is fundamentally misreading Iran's
intentions in light of the recently inked nuclear accord.
"We're witnessing a new great game, and Obama is so self-centered he
keeps playing solitaire," Rubin said. "Obama simply doesn't understand
that the world is full of dictators who seek to checkmate America. What he
sees as compromise; they see as weakness to exploit."
Referring to a visit last week to Russia by IRGC leader Qassem Soleimani,
who is responsible for the deaths of Americans, Rubin said it is clear that
Moscow and Tehran aim to build a tight military alliance.
"Visiting Russia to talk arms purchases and now this naval visit, it's clear
that Putin and Khamenei will waste no time to really develop their military
cooperation," he said.
An axis between Russia, Iran, and North Korea is beginning to emerge
Rubin said, citing official releases that a North Korean delegation is
currently visiting Russia to tour war games sites.
"The Russian warship visit combined with North Korea scoping out war

game sites in Russia suggest a new Axis of Evil is taking shape with
Russia the lynchpin between Iran and North Korea," Rubin said. "As for the
United States, rather than the leader of the free world, Obama and Kerry
have transformed us in much of the world's eyes as the pinnacle of
surrender."
Meanwhile, Obama admitted Monday that Iran's nuclear breakout time will
shrink to "a matter of months" once the nuclear accord expires in around
15 years.

Outstanding video! Come quickly Lord Jesus! monstermovieman


Just shared on my facebook, hoping to get some people to wake up and
ask the Lord into their hearts! - L. Town

Hi. This is Cheryl, from New Hampshire. Thank you so


much for Convergence. I just received it today. I just
finished watching it.

It was FANTASTIC!! I Praise God for your Ministry. I've


been praying that God would prepare the hearts of my
family members when I show them the video. I'm praying
that God would give them the understanding and
keep them interested to watch it to the end and also keep

them awake.

-------------------------------------------------

Our Best DVD Ever

I believe CONVERGENCE, is the best DVD that we have ever


produced! It's jammed packed full of stunningly vivid images and
Hi-Def clips, that thoroughly show that we are in the end of the
End Times, right before the Rapture and the Tribulation.

100 % Worded

This DVD is 100% worded for the hearing impaired. Every word
the narrator speaks, is clearly on the screen.

A Must See DVD

Every believer needs to watch this DVD and then share it with
their friends, family members, and co-workers. Every church,
and small bible study group, should watch this DVD and use it to
evangelize. There is an invitation at the end of the DVD, that
gives everyone the opportunity to ask Jesus into their lives!

Evangelistic tool

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, well, then a


DVD, with thousands of images, must be priceless. Today's
generation does not read books as much as us old school
people. But, hand them a DVD, and they are more than likely to
watch it.

Timely

The CONVERGENCE DVD could not be more timely! It


coincides exactly with today's headlines and current events,
leaving no doubt, that all the end times signs are happening, just
as Jesus predicted.

CONVERGENCE of the End


Time Signs
"CONVERGENCE of the End Time Signs" - Bible Prophecy fulfillment is
in a period of acceleration, a time of Quickening, the world is racing
towards Armageddon, now more than ever we must be ready! We are
about to enter a time like no other time, a time that no man has ever seen,
a time like no other time in the history of this world, as a matter of fact we
are about to enter the end times. Since the dawn of mankind, there have
always been wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famines, pestilences,
disease, strange-weather and false Christ's just as Jesus predicted. Fast
forward nearly 2,000 years since Jesus made this prediction, and you have
today's headlines lining up exactly with the Word of God. The big
thing isn't that these events are happening today, is that they are all
happening at the very same time! Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right
before our very eyes. Fulfilled prophecy is increasing in frequency and
intensity just like birth pains, and Jesus said when you see these know that
I am near, even at the door.
All the signs of the last days are converging at the same time. Bible
Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, the
predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Never,
in the history throughout the world have so many forces, including
economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral,
spiritual and religion, converged together to bring this world that's already
teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return.
"CONVERGENCE" brings it all together and will clearly show where all this
heading and what people need to do!

READ SOME OF OUR REVIEWS:

"Awesome - Great Work - Congratulations!" - D. Koerner

"I found it really moving" - D. Bower

"The scene inside the church was awesome. I need to go home and lay on my face.
Great work man!"- R. Miller

"Awesome video! I watched it last night with my family, and we loved it, and plan to
share the word about it" - C. Young

"My wife and I watched the video and it is outstanding. Biblically solid...... we
especially like the clear bible referencing and quoting. The video is a moving
tapestry tightly weaved with spectacular photography, bible references, and the
signs of the times put together like a jigsaw puzzle. The gospel is presented clearly
with tender love. We pray that this DVD gets distributed far and wide. I hope youth
ministers have the courage to show this DVD rather than the garbage materials of
the emergent church movement." - John Wicklund Board President for Olive Tree
Ministries

"I received The End of Times DVD today. It is Superb! For those that don't know
much, or anything about Bible Prophecy, this DVD should really open their eyes, a
great teaching tool. For those that have grown cold or indifferent in the Lord, this
should awaken them." T. Nelson

"The DVD provides an effective mix of biblical teaching and history, interspersed
with the happenings in Israel today. Particularly effective is the emotional ending
showing the return of Jewish people worldwide back to Israel and traveling with a
sense of destiny. Many commentators have said Israel is God's hour hand,
Jerusalem is the minute hand, and the Temple Mount is the second hand on God's
timepiece. The video is a great introduction and myth-buster for those who do not
know of the importance of Israel in God's eyes or who believe Israel has as much
significance in today's world as Madagascar or the Canary Islands." - John
Wicklund, Chairman Olive Tree Ministries Board of Directors

Got the DVD today and just finished watching it...outstanding!!! Loved it!!! - G.
Madison - Oklahoma

I watched "Israel God's Timepiece" last night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have
loved Israel ever since I read the book "Exodus", when I was in the Army in 1958. I
do everything I can to support Israel and get people involved in what they are going
through, and more than that, to pray for Peace in Jerusalem, according to Psalm
122. Your DVD was a fitting tribute to this wonderful, spectacular country and God's
very own "baby". Thanks for taking the time to put it together. Very well done. - J.
Masters - Mississippi

It is really a professional production and I see why it is so well received. In fact we


felt it is actually the best film we have seen on end time events. - Bill & Brenda
Hicks

At first I thought it was going to be another routine message but as it progressed it


became more and more impressive. It was a great message. Congratulations on a
very well presented and produced DVD. - R. Webb - Williamsburg

Another effective witness from Randy and Prophecy Update. The "There will be
Tribulation" video describes the purpose and the sequence of events during the
final seven years prior to the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. The linkage to many
Old Testament prophecies clearly show the importance of the nation of Israel to this
seven-year period. The pictures in the video document a world already full of
tribulation- how terrible will be those seven years. Great teaching tool for small
groups and youth ministers to present the gospel message through the topic of
bible prophecy. - John Wicklund Chair- Olive Tree Ministries Board of
Directors

"Moving and Inspirational" - D. Koerner, Bakersfield, CA

"Your Presentation will literally scare the h-ll out some people. There is enough
scripture and warnings of what is coming to cause, anyone, who has put off
accepting the Lord's salvation through Jesus to repent now!" - Don Mills - Director
of Programming - CSN Radio - Twin Falls, ID

Brother Randy, to say it was a great movie documentary is an understatement.


Thank you for doing the Lord's work. This movie gave me the chills. - Terrance Alan
- Kaukauna, WI

Thanks so much for the DVD There will be Tribulation...I watched it the other day,
finally. It is well done and really holds your attention. In fact, it's
unrelenting...which of course is what it needs to be. - Rich and JoAnne - Temecula,

September 2015 - By Daymond Duck http://www.raptureready.com/featured/duck/dd187.html

There have been several good articles, pro and con, about upcoming
events to watch for in Sept. 2015 (blood moons, Sabbatical year,
Shemitah, etc.). To be honest, when these good articles came out I just
skimmed over many of them. But I now realize that the list of things to
watch for in Sept. 2015 has surpassed my ability to keep up with all of it.
So here is a list I made for myself. It is not my purpose to comment on the
relevance of any of these things. But it is my purpose to have a calendar of
events that I can refer to. Also, understand that because a Jewish day
ends at sundown (not 12 p.m.) and because there are questions about the
accuracy of the Jewish calendar some of what is being reported could be
wrong.
Sept. 9: The date the Jewish Sanhedrin plans to put Pres. Obama on trial
on Mt. Zion for promoting genocide of the Jewish people with the P5 +1
agreement with Iran over that nation's nuclear weapons program. Will this
trial be worthless or will it accomplish anything?
Sept. 13: The end of the Sabbatical year (at sundown on Sept. 13) and the
date that a highly respected ultra-Orthodox Jewish Rabbi named Chaim
Kanievsky says Israel's Messiah will arrive. Is he right or a false prophet?
Sept. 13: Congress has 60 days to vote on the P5 + 1 agreement with Iran
(signed on July 14, 2015). If Congress takes a full 60 days, this vote could
be on Sept. 13. Controversy surrounds this date because there are secret
deals between the IAEA and Iran that Congress has not seen.
Sept. 13: The Shemitah year (also called a Sabbath year, or a Sabbatical
year, or the seventh year of the agricultural cycle) ends at sundown on
Sept. 13. It is associated with financial issues; debt forgiveness; economic
problems; recession; declines in the Stock Market, etc. Jonathan Cahn
says the U.S. or the world could have economic problems about this time.
Sept.13-15: Rosh Hashanah (also called the Jewish New Year or the Feast
of Trumpets) begins at sundown on Sept. 13 and ends at sundown on
Sept. 15. Some (not all) prophecy teachers believe the Rapture could
occur at the end of Rosh Hashanah this year or next year or some year.
Sept.15: The purported military drill called Joint Assistance for
Development and Execution (JADE) Homeland Eradication of Local
Militants (HELM) is supposed to end. Will it? Will there be a JADE HELM
2016, 2017, etc.?

Sept.15: The 70th UN General Assembly will begin meeting. During this
session (not necessarily on the 15th), France is expected to present a
resolution to the UN Security Council to divide the Promised Land (TwoState Solution) and to force a peace treaty on Israel and the PA. If the UN
does this, their decision will lead to the beginning of the Tribulation period
and the battle of Armageddon.
Sept. 20: The Jewish Sanhedrin plans to put Pope Francis on trial on Mt.
Zion for officially recognizing the existence of a Palestinian State on land
that God gave to Israel. Will the outcome be recognized by God?
Sept. 22-23: Yom Kippur (also called the Day of Atonement or the Feast of
Atonement) begins at sundown on Sept. 22. This will mark the beginning of
the next year of Jubilee (the 50th year) which involves focus on God, the
cancellation of debts, restoration of land to the original owners, etc. Will
God focus on economic issues, Israel's restoration to the land, etc.?
Sept. 23: Pope Francis is scheduled to visit the White House for
discussions with Pres. Obama about their shared values on caring for the
poor (wealth redistribution), religious freedom, immigration (elimination of
borders), environmental issues (global warming), etc.
Sept. 24: Pope Francis is scheduled to address a joint session of
Congress about world peace, religious values (probably a need for a world
religion), caring for the poor, etc.
Sept. 25: Pope Francis is scheduled to address the UN. He wants to
reduce the world's population, regulate global climate change, establish a
global constitution, establish a global court and establish a one-world
government.
Sept. 25-27: The UN plans to hold a Sustainable Development Summit to
expand the role of global governance (world government). They plan to
discuss global economic issues, climate change, global education and
gender equality. It is really a plan to control the life of everyone on earth.
Sept. 28: The Feast of Tabernacles and the fourth blood moon in the
current Tetrad will take place on this date. Several major prophetic events
have happened just before or just after other blood moon Tetrads. The
Jewish Talmud (not the Bible) says blood moons are a sign of war in Israel.
Several major end-of-the-age wars are mentioned in the Bible and some
are prophecy teachers believe some or all of these could soon occur.
This convergence of events in Sept. 2015 is why many people think

something big is about to happen. We shall soon know.

Will The Large Hadron Collider Open Up A Portal To


Another Dimension? - By Michael Snyder http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/will-the-large-hadron-collideropen-up-a-portal-to-another-dimension
What in the world is going on over at CERN? Are scientists playing around
with forces that they simply do not understand? Some of the things that I
am going to share with you in this article are deeply disturbing. The
European Organization for Nuclear Research (also known as CERN) is
purposely smashing particles into one another at astonishingly high
speeds. If you think that sounds incredibly dangerous, you are not alone.
Scientists all over the world have suggested that the bizarre experiments
taking place at CERN could either open a black hole, destroy the entire
world or open up a portal to another dimension. But none of those
concerns have been taken seriously. Instead, scientists at CERN just
continue to smash more and more particles into each other at higher and
higher speeds.
Just recently, I was at a meeting during which Brad Scott suggested that
the horrific earthquake in Nepal on April 25th coincided with some very
unusual activity at the Large Hadron Collider. I had never heard this
before, and since I am skeptical by nature, I decided to not just take his
word for it and look into it myself. And the truth is that it is hard to come to
any solid conclusions about this. You can watch this video and decide for
yourself.

But without a doubt, I believe that there are reasons to be deeply, deeply
concerned about what CERN is doing. If you are not familiar with the
Large Hadron Collider, the following is some pretty good basic information
from Wikipedia...
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful
particle collider, the largest, most complex experimental facility ever built,
and the largest single machine in the world.[1] It was built by the European
Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 in
collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100
countries, as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories.[2] It lies in a
tunnel 27 kilometres (17 mi) in circumference, as deep as 175 metres (574
ft) beneath the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland. Its first
research run took place from 30 March 2010 to 13 February 2013 at an
initial energy of 3.5 teraelectronvolts (TeV) per beam (7 TeV total), almost 4
times more than the previous world record for a collider,[3] rising to 4 TeV
per beam (8 TeV total) from 2012.[4][5] On 13 February 2013 the LHC's
first run officially ended, and it was shut down for planned upgrades. 'Test'
collisions restarted in the upgraded collider on 5 April 2015,[6][7] reaching
6.5 TeV per beam on 20 May 2015 (13 TeV total, the current world record
for particle collisions). Its second research run commenced on schedule,
on 3 June 2015.
As this second run progresses, the number of particles that are being
smashed together will continue to increase.
So is it really a good idea to be increasing the frequency of collisions so
much? The following is an excerpt from a recent press release that
contained some of the specific technical details...
As for any machine exploring a new energy frontier, operators at the LHC
face many challenges on a daily basis. Since the start of Run 2, they have
been gradually increasing the intensity of the LHC's two beams, which
travel in opposite directions around the 27-kilometre ring at almost the
speed of light. The LHC has run at the record high energy with each beam
containing up to 476 bunches of 100 billion protons, delivering collisions
every 50 nanoseconds. In the coming days, the intensity should increase
further with a new rhythm of 25 nanoseconds. After a planned technical
stop in early September, the teams will also be able to increase the
number of bunches with the goal of reaching more than 2000 bunches per
beam by the end of 2015.
"During the hardware-commissioning phase, we have learnt to manage
carefully the huge energy stored in the magnets. Now with beam

commissioning we have to learn progressively how to store and handle the


beam energy," said CERN Director of Accelerators and Technology
Frdrick Bordry. "Our goal for 2015 is to reach the nominal performance
of the LHC at 13 TeV so as to exploit its potential from 2016 to 2018."
At full capacity, the Large Hadron Collider can smash protons together at a
rate of a billion per second.
That is a number that is almost unimaginable.
So precisely what are they hoping to accomplish by this?
Most of the articles about the LHC in the mainstream media discuss
mundane scientific research goals that don't really seem to justify all of the
time, effort and money that are being expended.
Could it be possible that the top officials at CERN actually have something
else in mind?
The director of research at CERN, physicist Sergio Bertolucci, has stated
that the LHC may create a "door" to "an extra dimension". According to
him, something might come out of that door, or "we might send something
through it"...
A top boffin at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic
machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific
phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension".
"Out of this door might come something, or we might send something
through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and
Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at
CERN HQ earlier this week.
But why create a portal to another dimension if he doesn't have any idea
what we might encounter?
Or does he?
Other prominent scientific voices have expressed deep concern about
what might happen at CERN.
For instance, Stephen Hawking has suggested that the LHC may be
capable of creating a black hole that could swallow our world and destroy
the entire universe...

Stephen Hawking says the 'God Particle' that scientists believe created the
world could actually end it, too.
The particle - know as Higgs boson - "has the worrisome feature" that it
could become unstable at extremely high energies and create a "black
hole" that would collapse the universe, the legendary British physicist has
warned in a new book titled Starmus, according to the Daily Express.
"This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming," Hawking
claimed in the book.
Others have raised questions that are more philosophical in nature.
Why, for example, does the logo for CERN contain "666"...

And why is there a statue of the Hindu god Shiva ("the destroyer") standing
right outside CERN headquarters?...

In the YouTube video posted below, Jim Staley points these things out,
along with the fact that the LHC is built on the site of an ancient town that
was dedicated to "Apollyon" in Roman times. I very much encourage you
to watch this 13 minute video...
WATCH: https://youtu.be/N9PNdijDJCw

So what are we to make of all this?


Are European scientists knowingly or unknowingly messing around with
some very dark forces?
Let us hope that we don't get a definitive answer to that question any time
soon.
We might not like the answer.

And of course the scientific world doesn't plan to stop here. At this point
there are plans to have an even larger particle collider operational by
2026...
Physicists hope to eventually build larger accelerators that would produce
collisions with even more energy than the LHC, which might allow them to
discover new particles and better understand dark matter. The proposed
International Linear Collider, for instance, would be more than 20 miles
long, with a pair of accelerators facing each other straight on, rather than
the familiar ring design of the LHC and other accelerators. It's still pending,
but could be built in Japan, with scientists hoping to have it operational by
2026.
I don't have all the answers, but hopefully I have raised some very
important questions in this article.

Daily Jot: The Muslim Death Threat - Bill Wilson www.dailyjot.com


A good number of Christians cannot suspend their disbelief to see Islam as
it is--a political system using religion to advance its evil causes. The history
of Islam from its beginning is one of violence, slave mongering and the
threat of death or dismemberment as a control over those unfortunate
enough to fall beneath its rule. There is no other major religion on earth
today that deals systematically in human trafficking, drugs, death and
destruction other than Islam. It is not a religion of peace, nor is it of the
same God, YHVH, of the Jews and Christians. This violent and unrelenting
political force is incompatible with any form of representative democracy or
peaceful religion, and it is attempting to takeover America.
Last week, several questioned the veracity of the account of the young
Muslim boy giving the "cut your throat" sign to a man at a store near the
Pentagon. Around the world, Muslims are training their children to hate
Christians and Jews. I have seen the training materials first hand, and
have witnessed video of the classrooms. It is happening. Just this week
several Muslims have been arrested in the US for aiding and abetting the
Islamic State (IS). They were college-aged converts and/or sons and
daughters of Muslims who moved here from war-torn areas of the Middle

East. Islam is using social media to educate and recruit people to their
cause. Others are being raised up militant in mosques in the US.
For example, federal prosecutors charged 20 year old Nader Saadeh of
New Jersey on terror-related counts and of trying to help organize a "small
army" of fighters in New York and New Jersey to join the IS during the past
two years. The FBI says he and his brother were part of an IS cell. Sources
say that his mother pleaded with him not to join the IS. In another case,
two former Mississippi State University students, Muhammed Oda
Dakhalla, of Starkville, and Jaelyn De'Shaun Young, of Vicksburg, were
charged with attempting to join IS. They allegedly had a plan to get married
in Turkey, and cross over into Syria. Saadeh also planned to connect with
an IS contact in Turkey and move on to Syria.
There is a pattern and a network working here in America. Evangelist
Franklin Graham in April suggested halting "all immigration of Muslims from
countries that have active terrorist cells." That would mean essentially
halting all Muslim immigration. Yet this administration is stepping up
immigration from the most active IS areas. While not all Muslims are
terrorists, it's a sure bet that the overwhelming majority of terrorists are
Muslim. And if a Muslim is a good Muslim--that is, believes the Koran--that
person could become radicalized with the turn of a page and the reading of
a Koranic scripture. This is a threat to all that is good. As Jesus said in
Matthew 24:4, "Take heed that no man deceive you." The Muslim death
threat is real.

Daily Devotion: You Have His Attention - Greg Laurie www.harvest.org


"The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace."
-Numbers 6:26
Have you ever been talking with someone who wasn't paying attention? Or
to put it another way, have you ever been talking with someone who was
texting? You're saying, "And so I said this-are you listening to me?"
"Yes."

"What did I just say?"


"Uh, I'm not sure."
Sometimes we wonder if it's the same way with God. We wonder whether
we have His attention and if He is aware of what is happening to us when
things aren't going that well.
Maybe Joseph felt that way at times. After all, he was only human. He had
done all of the right things. He had resisted the advances of Potiphar's
wife. But what happened? He was falsely accused of rape and thrown into
a stinking Egyptian prison. How easily Joseph could have thought, This is
just great. You serve the Lord, you do what God wants, and this is where it
gets you. If I would have given in to Mrs. Potiphar, I wouldn't be here right
now. I would be living in the lap of luxury. But here I am, suffering!
The Bible doesn't tell us that Joseph thought that, but I wonder if he did.
Yet even while Joseph was in prison, God was still blessing him and
preparing him for some awesome things. Joseph's best days were to
come. God was preparing him to be someone who could handle those
lessons. In the same way, everything we go through in life is preparation
for something else.
When Numbers 6:26 says, "The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,"
that phrase "lift up His countenance" means "to lift up His face." Another
way to translate it is "to look, to see, to know, to be interested, and to have
one's full attention."
We have His full attention.

"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in
more danger of falling than at any time in its history.

But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very


decline. From this point on, we believers have to get
serious. We are going to face discouragement,
disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the
time between now and the Rapture. But don't be
discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will
provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good
news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and
your hope with those who need Christ. We still have
