One day, about a billion years ago, Earth’s inner core had a growth spurt. The molten ball of liquid metal at the center of our planet rapidly crystallized due to lowering temperatures, growing steadily outward until it reached the roughly 760-mile (1,220 kilometers) diameter to which it’s thought to extend today. That’s the conventional story of the inner core’s creation, anyway. But according to a new paper published online this week in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, that story is impossible. In the paper, the researchers argued that the standard model of how the Earth’s core formed is missing a crucial detail about how metals crystallize: a mandatory, massive drop in temperature that would be extremely difficult to achieve at core pressures. Weirder still, the researchers said, once you account for this missing detail, the science seems to suggest that Earth’s inner core shouldn’t exist at all. (READ MORE)
A new movie titled Come Sunday (originally titled Heretic) is garnering highly positive reviews for actor Chiwetel Ejiofor’s portrayal of Bishop Carlton Pearson. At one point, Pearson was senior pastor of Higher Dimensions Family Church, a Pentecostal megachurch in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was personally mentored by Oral Roberts and served on the board at ORU. “Then Pearson declared that he no longer believed in hell and preached what he called the ‘gospel of inclusion.’ As a result, he was forced to resign from [the] board of regents and was deemed a heretic by his former peers. He traded his Pentecostal ministry for universalism.”[i]
Why am I personally interested in this story and the new movie?
Ironically, it started a while back when searching for a particular document that I had placed in an old photo album years ago for safe keeping. I had gone through at least a dozen books of images, old newspaper clippings, seeing members of churches we had pastored and records of events frozen in time from nearly 30 years inside institutionalized Christianity, when finally between dusty storage bins and spider webs I found what I was looking for. I placed the coveted item among the research notes for a book project, then returned everything else to the closets.
That should have been that, but for the next week the old memories in those boxes kept calling to me about things and friends I had nearly forgotten—people who represented the true mission of the Church and were wonderful examples to my wife and I about what it means to be a Christian. Their names would not be recognized by most today—dedicated believers like O.R. Cross, Henrietta Stewart, Lorraine Morgan, Wyoming Rosebud Dollar, C.K. Barnes, Eugene & Evelyn Fuller, Annie Walton, and others of the New Testament clan.
And then there was that other group, hiding in plain sight among the believers, sometimes even leading them, the ones the Bible calls “clouds without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots” (Jude 1:12).
Among this second class were—and still are—some fantastic heretics I have known.
Take our old friend Carlton Pearson for instance, the central figure of the new film Come Sunday. When I was pastor of Life Center and then Family Worship Center near Portland, Oregon during the 80s, my church was the host for TBN’s West Coast broadcasts and special events where some of America’s top evangelists appeared almost nightly for a while. In those days, the Church was in flux. The Great Generation with its Faith of the Fathers was getting older, and errant doctrines made delicious by nasty end-time agents known as demons were finding more and more willing hearts who were having the time of their lives abandoning solid theology in exchange for such teachings as “The Doctrine of Inclusion” (in which nobody goes to hell) eventually branding such false prophets as heretics (including Carlton Pearson) among thoughtful evangelicals.
Then there were those who embraced things far worse than “Inclusion.” For instance, “Kingdom Age” theology (also known as Reconstructionism, Kingdom Now Theology, Theonomy, Dominion Theology, and most recently, Dominionism), which singularly has wrought some of the most far-reaching destruction within the Body of Christ this century.
Dominionism is a form of hyper-Calvinism (though supported by both reconstructionists and non-reconstructionists) that ultimately seeks to establish the Kingdom of God on earth through the union of politics and religion. Though ravenously popular among most talking-heads for the Religious Right (reinvigorated since the election of Donald Trump, who I also voted for), combining religious faith with politics as a legislative system of governance such as Dominionism would do, hearkens the formula upon which Antichrist will come to power. Note how in the book of Revelation, chapter 13, the political figure of Antichrist derives ultra-national dominance from the world’s religious faithful through the influence of an ecclesiastical leader known as the False Prophet. Similar political enthusiasm exists among dominionists despite the fact that neither Jesus nor His disciples (who turned the world upside down through preaching the gospel of Christ, the true “power of God,” according to Paul) ever imagined the goal of changing the world through supplanting secular government with an authoritarian theocracy.
In fact, Jesus made it clear that His followers would not fight earthly authorities purely because His kingdom was “not of this world” (John 18:36). While every modern citizen—religious and non-religious—has the responsibility to lobby for moral good, combining the mission of the church with political aspirations is not only unprecedented in New Testament theology—including the life of Christ and the pattern of the New Testament church—but a tragic scheme concocted by sinister forces that seek to defer the Church from its true power while enriching insincere bureaucrats. So… let me take this moment to state that, while I personally appreciate the values represented by some people in the President’s Evangelical Advisory Board, my prayer for believers is that they will not be fooled (again) into believing they can fulfill the will of God by pulling voting levers.
That said, while great heresies like “Dominionism” and “Inclusion” are, or should be, self-evident, other contenders for the most spectacular heresies in the world today would have to include lingering devotees of the Prosperity Movement, Ecumenical Modernism, and Dual Covenant (wherein Jews do not need to accept Jesus as Messiah) espoused by some well-known preachers. Yet those aged voices that called out to me recently from my fading boxes of memories also reminded that, while it’s easier today to get an “amen” while condemning teachings like Dominionism, the most insidious doctrines are those “smaller lucifers,” which are often harder to perceive. For instance, how easy it is (and was) to see through the glaring examples of self-serving and lavish lifestyles that some of my old televangelist friends sought support for, while overlooking or even excusing Luciferianisn (selfishness) that is measured in the tiniest of portions, minute amounts so cleverly concealed within subtle and popular doctrines today that they are nearly impossible to detect.
Ask any evangelist who has tried to take the Gospel outside the four-doors of the local assembly what I mean and hear them repeat stories of how quickly certain members arose to resist the plan and to grumble over the resources that could otherwise be used to benefit them. This is the cancer that two decades of prosperity preaching, inward focusing and me-ism has produced. Of course, most of these anti-evangelists wrap their Luciferianism in nifty religious phrases—like Judas Iscariot did when he pretended to care for the poor but secretly wanted to steal the value of the oil that was used to anoint the feet of Jesus (John 12:1-6). These types resemble Judas in another way as well; they don’t even know how they are thus being used as fleshy gloves, the earthen hands of that invisible spirit, the master of waterless clouds operating within or behind them that hates true fishers of men. But for those with eyes to see, the father of lies always gives himself away through his envy of others, seeking what he can gain from believers and religion, not what he can give, then pretending that there is something wrong with those he cannot control, those that get things done like Jesus did, disparaging them, while he himself accomplishes nothing but division, diversion, troll-ism, and destruction.
Perhaps you have seen this spirit in the actions or heard it in the mouths of people you thought were your partners. When once you (or somebody you knew) had nothing more to give them, they turned away from you, or worse, against you and revealed the awful truth: their religious spirit had only come for what it could get, gain, take, absorb, and then turned “to kill and to destroy” (John 10:10a).
Thankfully the verse above goes on to describe the true spirit of Christ, which comes so that people might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. This is why it is wise to observe what religious people do, not only what they say, so that ultimately it becomes clear what spirit is operating within them. “Ye shall know them by their fruits,” Jesus said in Matthew 7:16.
We extend our prayers to Bishop Carlton Pearson and others like him in the sincere hope they may yet be corrected and walk in true fellowship with God through Jesus Christ, His son.
In the important newspaper “la Repubblica” of which he is the founder, Eugenio Scalfari, an undisputed authority of Italian secular thought, last October 9 returned to speaking in the following terms about what he sees as a “revolution” of this pontificate, in comments by Francis that are derived from his frequents conversations with him: “Pope Francis has abolished the places where souls were supposed to go after death: hell, purgatory, heaven. The idea he holds is that souls dominated by evil and unrepentant cease to exist, while those that have been redeemed from evil will be taken up into beatitude, contemplating God.” Observing immediately afterward: “The universal judgment that is in the tradition of the Church therefore becomes devoid of meaning. It remains a simple pretext that has given rise to splendid paintings in the history of art. Nothing other than this.” On Wednesday, October 11, at the general audience in Saint Peter’s Square, Francis said that such a judgment is not to be feared, because “at the end of our history there is the merciful Jesus,” and therefore “everything will be saved. Everything.” In the text distributed to the journalists accredited to the Holy See, this last word, “everything,” was emphasized in boldface. At another general audience a few months ago, on Wednesday, August 23, Francis gave for the end of history an image that is entirely and only comforting: that of “an immense tent, where God will welcome all mankind so as to dwell with them definitively.” (READ MORE)
It was in this moment Mr Devalle said he realised he was in hell. He continued: “It was hot, extremely hot, very humid and dense. There was smoke coming out of the ground and I am split into seven. Two of me are living in my past and I’m experiencing all the people that I had met throughout my life and they would come to me and get in my face and start pushing and screaming and I would relive a moment where I caused them pain.” He then saw the suffering that his death would cause: “My mother, I was there when she collapsed when she found out I was dead from the suicide. “My daughter, she was 18, she would sit on the floor contemplating suicide because I wasn’t there for her. I was weeping for Jesus to save me. I was then lifted up from the back of my neck and very slowly lifted out of this pit. (READ MORE)
Dr. Mary Neal’s entire life was rocked when she found herself trapped beneath eight feet of raging waters while kayaking in Chile back in 1999 — an experience that she says led her to die, visit heaven — and return. Neal, an orthopedic surgeon from Wyoming who authored the new book, “Seven Lessons From Heaven: How Dying Taught Me to Live a Joy-Filled Life,” recently appeared on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast” where she described her harrowing experience and revealed the stunning ways in which it transformed her life and perspective. Before her accident, Neal was a doctor and scientist who was nominally Christian. But what followed — her purported visit to heaven and interaction with Christ — changed everything. (READ MORE)
In the last entry we introduced the twin tunnels of the Gotthard Base Tunnel and the deeply occult ceremony held in Switzerland not far from CERN. In this entry let’s examine each phase of this live-streamed rite. It commenced with the interfaith blessing as mentioned earlier. Following this invocation of the triple-goddess, the shepherd aroused the horned man, who strutted into the scene (complete with eerie red lighting and smoke—like he’d risen from the Abyss), accompanied by his hellish friends—many engaged in ritualistic sex and poses. This parade of promiscuity also included a creepy “angel” that flew over top of some of the miners (presumably, representing the nine who died). Once the first phase (we’ll call it the opening of the portal) concluded, the various religious and political dignitaries boarded the train and headed toward the northern terminus at Erstfeld. Note, that the choice to begin in the south and end in the north represents the ascension of something to the surface, that is the opening of the Abyss.
The primary performances took place on a massive outdoor stage in Erstfeld. This small city lies within the canton of Uri in Switzerland. (Uri, by the way, is a type of extinct bison, echoing the “horned” theme once again). As the dignitaries settled into their comfortable bandstand seats, a display lit up, showing what looked like a huge rock mountainside. Dancers dressed as miners “climbed” this rock face and dug into the earth, so to speak, to unveil what was beneath: a great machine, formed from human arms, that rotated and churned into various shapes and designs, many of which resembled the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
Once this “opening” is achieved, the miners strip off their orange jumpsuit attire (males only at this point, who are now bare-chested) and take up “arms”; that is, they use staves to perform a dance routine that looks like warfare. Once this battle concludes, a group of women join the man (the women wear only white underwear), and the entire dance troupe engages in a frenzied display amidst a cloud of dust (simulating smoke, perhaps?) This frenetic dance arouses a giant.
Clearly, this endeavor is far more than Switzerland’s braggadocio about an engineering feat! The connection between CERN and ritualistic summoning of a sleeping giant (the “horned god” of Cernunnos or even Melkart—both are types of the rising/dying god, and Melkart “slept” for half the year, which may be why Elijah told the priests of Baal to “call louder,” because he might be sleeping).
As the giant wakens, the dancers perform ritualistic sex rites, many homosexual in nature. Following this simulated copulation, the dancers fall to the floor as if dead.
On the screen behind the dancers, you can see three men dressed as miners. Just as the dancers have died, these men also “die” after being chased by something that looks like smoke. The three men (representing perhaps the nine who died in the construction of the tunnels) fall down a deep hole, as if traveling to hell as a sacrifice, while the dancers (now revived), continue their debauched choreography. As the dead miners descend, they are met with giant hands:
We then see three ghostly female dancers arise from the pit:
As these ghostly women fly above the dancers, a giant eye forms behind them on the screen, and below a troupe of similarly ghostly dancers enter the stage area, wearing veils and skirts. At this point, men begin to assume female attire, demonstrating a reversal of traditional morals and roles as the spirit of the Abyss takes over. Whirling dervishes accompany these strange dancers, along with men wearing costumes that make them look as if they are covered in animal hair or straw. These strange “Cousin It” types creep alongside a long line of musicians who bear Alpine horns. It’s clear that the strange mashup of Alpine with Middle Eastern traditions is intended to show an international revelry welcoming the risen “god” from the Abyss.
Behind the musicians and ghostly dancers, the horned god makes his grand entrance to the stage, and following him (as if to bless him) is the first of the triune goddesses: the Maiden. She is dressed in virginal white, and she trails behind the horned Cernunnos, “Goat Man.”
Like Krampus, the Goat Man wears a cutaway tuxedo with a red carnation, representing his assimilation into our modern culture:
As the Goat Man dances with the strange collection of humanity on the stage below, his image is also displayed on the monitor screen behind the troupe, showing the “true demonic spirit” behind the world’s return to pagan worship:
Notice that three scarabs fly before this screaming face (the spirit of Antichrist). Scarabs represent rebirth in Egyptian culture. The screen again changes, and the massive Antichrist face becomes a vortex of eyes. This Antichrist New World Order will shut down all free will, and the citizens of the world will be watched (the Watchers) every moment of every day.
As these Watchers rise up from the Abyss, the Goat Man embraces the Maiden, impregnating her. He is then declared to be king as all bow down to worship him.
As with many pagan pantheons, the king then dies (remember that the “horned man” is a type of rising/dying god, and many of these deities (once dead) are replaced by a child (Osiris/Horus, Nimrod/Tammuz are examples). After the Goat Man’s “death,” we see a strange Goat Child appear off to one side of the stage (as if he exists in a separate place):
Now that the Goat Child has been conceived, a chorus of men and women (some cross-dressing) bring offerings of greenery and branches, and roots begin to appear on the large screen behind the main stage.
The massive roots in the program show the occult inversion of the Tree of Life, and within a few moments these roots transform the world into a massive machine. Men dressed as miners stand upon large pistons, and cogs within the great machine interconnect and drive these pistons. The New World Order that has been set into motion by the summoning of the satanic Goat Man culminates with the reappearance of the Maiden, now adorned in blood red and heavily pregnant (the second face of the triune Goddess). She is the Whore of Babylon, ruling a world of imprisoned humanity:
Note the horned figure just behind the Whore dancer. The Goat Man is now a Goat Woman, again indicating a strange reversal of the old order. The ancient Watchers whom pagans worshiped as gods had the power to take both male and female forms, giving rise to the belief in “twins” (Hermes/Aphrodite is one example of a twin god). As the Whore gives birth, the Goat Man appears to revive, only now his “goat head” has been removed, making him appear more human. Remember, the Antichrist will appear to revive from a fatal “head wound,” and once resurrected, will be worshiped by all the world.
Note the inversion of form here. Men are dressed as women and women as men. The New World Pagan Order will stand the Judeo/Christian world on its head, and the old gods will return to enthrall mankind using drugs, rampant sexual “freedoms,” and secret knowledge.
This bizarre opening ceremony cost Switzerland eight million euros to stage—a ridiculous amount considering the economic crisis facing nearly every nation of this bloc. Sacrifice, sex magic, and science (CERN) form the hellish trinity of practices revealed in this detestable display. Who in their right mind would spend even one euro on such a strange ceremony? Clearly, this live-streamed event was intended as a worldwide ritual and not a celebration of engineering.
The Goat Man is waiting to rise, and Switzerland’s ritual tells us that unregenerate mankind will welcome him when he emerges from the pit. The triune goddess will ride the “beast system,” and though this crazed play shows an ecstatic world population that works together like a well-oiled, debauched machine, the truth is far more insidious. The Goat Man, the Antichrist, will enslave mankind using his own lusts as a key.
The beast you saw was, and is not, but is about to come up from the Abyss and then go to destruction. The inhabitants of the earth—all those whose names have not been written in the book of life since the foundation of the world—will be astounded when they see that the beast was, and is not, but is to come (Revelation 17:8, NET, emphasis added).
We delve into dark passages with hands created by God Almighty. How He must weep at mankind’s debasement of His marvelous design.
