Continuing from #1 – for ease of reference, the prime prophetical point is unequivocally stated at 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 – ‘that Day (of the Lord) will not come unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped…’
Re-reading that scripture upon learning of July’s Sex-Synod shenanigans something struck me from each its verses, namely:
- the CofE is in full-blown apostasy and thus will get at best a full-blown shaking down or, at worst, a deepening schism between orthodox and permissive clergy!
- someone will soon be on the world scene and manifest the antichrist spirit as ‘the son of perdition’, but is satan using the current situation as a ‘trial-run’ of what’s foretold by using ‘unwitting’ secular leaders as its mouthpiece??
Important to note that I’m NOT saying those people are demonic or demon-possessed. Disciples of Christ are only too aware of the nature of the spiritual battle being waged worldwide for everyone’s spirit, souls and minds – it’s influencing almost every aspect of our lives. The not-yet saved are thereby highly vulnerable and susceptible to satanic deceptions and all too easily fall prey to the enemy of our souls. It wants nothing less than our destruction, spiritual enslavement and eventual incarceration in hell.
In tandem with the General Synod’s formal declaration on banning Conversion Therapy, we see humanistic notions of equality, diversity, rights and sexuality permeating ‘progressive liberal’ goals. John Bercow, long-standing LGBT activist and the Speaker of the House Commons, addressed Pink News at a reception in Parliament. Although speaking in an unofficial capacity, in view of that Parliamentary position his opinion may be deemed as being an ‘ex-officio’ statement. Premier quotes him as saying,
“We are marking 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality.
“There’s always a balance to be struck – we don’t want to behave as though it’s all over, that everything has been done. Nothing remains – because that isn’t true.
“I still feel that we can only really have equal marriage when you can b***** well get married in a church if you want to do so.”
‘When the law changed in 2013, churches were offered a protection that they wouldn’t be forced to host gay marriages in their building.”
[Pink News reports: “‘I suppose in marriage terms there will only really be complete legal equality when it is permissible for a gay couple to marry as a matter of right in a church.” Referring to the Church of England’s clause, he added: “I always felt it was a pity when the same-sex marriage legislation went through that as a way of accommodating some of the church interests there was that compromise which detracted a little bit from the concept of complete equality”.’]
Blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ takes on the case of Justine vs Justin: the ‘not yet’ and ‘never’ of same-sex marriage in the Church of England – his report merits reading in full but here’s its first paragraphs (emphases mine) – note the ‘sacred cow’ of ‘equality’:
‘In an interview for Sky News last week on same-sex marriage and the Church, Justine Greening (the Education Secretary who also happens to hold the Equalities portfolio) told Sophy Ridge: “I think it’s quite important that we recognise that for many churches, including the Church of England actually, that was something that they were not yet willing to have in their own churches…”
‘In that ‘not yet willing’ lies a ton of teleological expectation: a sense of designed inevitability that it is simply a case of waiting for the jaundiced church to catch up with enlightened progress. “I think it is important that the church in a way keeps up and is part of a modern country,” she added, as though it were the Church’s vocation to conform to the prevailing culture rather than to transform it. She then made her appeal more religiously universal: “I think people do want to see our major faiths keep up with modern attitudes in our country.”
‘Some people, certainly. But she ignores the fact that for many more people of “our major faiths”, the very notion of same-sex marriage is a non-sequitur; a contradiction in terms; a category error. If the naturally fertile union of male and female is no longer to be distinguished from the naturally infertile union of man and man or woman and woman, then marriage becomes nothing more than a contract between consenting couples for companionship. Why limit that to couples?…
‘When Justine Greening talks of the church being “not yet willing” to solemnise same-sex unions, she appears to have no understanding that the male-female union is God’s pattern for creation: the two who come together to create a third reflect something of God’s own triune existence. This is the meaning of marriage.
‘And in a speech to the House of Lords during the passage of the Same-Sex Marriage Bill, Justin Welby made this perfectly clear, so much so that it isn’t clear at all why Justine Greening talks of ‘not yet’ rather than respectfully understanding that ‘never’ is the natural expression of the marriage covenant, and the Christian understanding of the spiritual institution…’ (continue reading).
WHOSE / WHAT’S AGENDA?
SO, who’s or what’s real agenda are those two Parliamentary personages promoting? One, a Minister of Her Majesty’s government sits in its collective decision-making body, the Cabinet; the other, Speaker of the House of Commons, is the presiding officer of the lower chamber of our elected Members of Parliament.
Therefore, we see how their exceptional status and related remarks closely fit 2 Thess 2:4 in their ‘opposing and exalting themselves above all that is called God’!
They’re not exactly sitting in the Temple of God (which will be for the Antichrist person in due course) – but by intimating they know much better than God does and that what He says must be changed, those statements echo the diabolical ‘Man of Lawlessness’!
Thus, it seems satan engineered a ‘test-run’ of that scripture, and it could also have a cunning plan to avoid its destruction in the lake of fire. Such was considered a couple of years ago here, which led into insights into a global satanic strategy. In the main those musings considered its goal of eradicating Israel and the Jews from Jerusalem because that would frustrate Jesus’ destined return to the Mount of Olives because none would be living there.
AS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
The other focus of satan’s plan to frustrate the Return is to prevent the Church teaching on that subject and stop her preparing to be Jesus’ Bride. What better way would there be than to discontinue preaching about sin and being ‘holy as I Am holy’?; which then permits demonic infiltration taking the Bride into the depths of sexual promiscuity and peculiarity of gender identity! That is, becoming totally unlike Him and not fit to meet Him and become His holy Bride.
After all, ‘it is written’ all male believers in Jesus Christ are to become a ‘pure spotless bride’ (2 Peter 3:13-14; Rev 21:1-2), so why not corrupt their sexual identity completely, and not just figuratively? Hence, the satanic stampede for sexual confusion across as many churches as possible – their leaders have turned from following and watching for the Bridegroom, and to listening to the father of lies instead.
After foretelling the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in His detailed discourse on the Mount of Olives, Jesus tells His disciples what to look out for as the signs of His return:
“…as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the coming of the Son of Man: They ate they drank, they were given in marriage until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
“Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be when the Son of Man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)
Interesting reference to Sodom in Dr Luke’s well-researched account, whereas it’s not given in Matthew 24. This suggests we should note carefully its juxta-positioning with the rather innocuous reference to pre-Deluge days’ extreme wickedness and violence and God’s judgement upon humanity as recorded in Genesis 6-9. Jesus says they were simply going about their everyday life BUT the commonality of destruction strongly implies the same reasons in both for judgement. AND, being a rabbi, Jesus perhaps was alluding to rabbinic wisdom received from patriarchal times, as explained below :
I first heard about that in Paul Keith Davis’ teaching on the Days of Noah. He recounted the awful demonic visions he and Neville Johnson had of their manifestation today (see final section of Three Anointings for End-time Believers) and shared what a rabbi had told him: the Deluge came because same-sex marriages were officially sanctioned. Rabbinic references to that – and worse – may be read in this sombre pdf. document. Its first quotation uses similar descriptions of ‘build buildings, plant plantings’ as given by Luke of Jesus’ remarks!
Therefore, it’s significant the LGBT pride movement have misappropriated the rainbow – a covenantal sign sent from God and which has been perverted by those folk! Hence, their mocking Australian Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, for returning it to its true significance – as in above photo and Daily Mail’s LGBT community not amused after founder of Noah’s Ark Biblical theme park says ‘Christians need to take back the rainbow’.
