Let His Truth Reign
Published on Mar 5, 2014
Contemplative prayer, kundalini, laughing/drunken glory, etc., are ALL methods used originally in the East in pagan religions and rituals. Contemplative prayer, while it began with alleged "Christians", the region they were from was Gnostic country area [East]. The similarities with contemplative prayer and Eastern meditation practices are astounding. ALL of these things are a vehicle to pantheism, meaning "god is in everything and everyone". The coming of the One World Religion will be caused by "unity", by "peace". The Book of Daniel says the antichrist will deceive many by means of "peace". It isn't coincidental that all these movements are calling for "peace", from the Catholics, to the charismatic/church with it's "unity" and ecumenism, to even the TM movement wanting "World Peace".

In a video message shown at the opening of the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC) in Busan, Republic of Korea, Bartholomew I, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, called on Christians to "pray for the peace of the whole world and for the unity of all".
Prayers for "peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula" and struggles of people for "justice and peace in the Middle East" remained significant references in his message. These concerns had been emphasized in the assembly's opening prayer service earlier in the day.
Bartholomew I's recorded message was shown on 30 October at the WCC assembly addressing the theme "God of life, lead us to justice and peace".
The assembly has brought more than 2,000 participants from around the world.
Bartholomew I said the assembly theme "informs our responsibility and accountability before critical problems of global importance, such as economy and ecology. We cannot remain idle spectators in a world pervaded by social injustice and plagued by suffering and oppression."
In praying, "God of life, lead us to justice and peace, we must renew our commitment to the essential vision of the World Council of Churches to confess the Lord Jesus Christ and glorify the one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit," he said.
"We can never separate issues of social consequences from those of theological significance; we cannot isolate challenges to human rights from dialogue about religious doctrine."
He said the assembly theme "appropriately encompasses purpose, perspective and prayer."
Bartholomew I spoke about the commitments of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, a founding member of the WCC. The commitment of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to the vision of the WCC has been unwavering, he said, from the very beginning to the more contentious periods.
He added that this commitment of the Ecumenical Patriarchate is evident through its extensive participation in particular roles and responsibilities in the WCC over many decades.
Offering his prayers for the assembly, Bartholomew I said, "May your encounter in Busan be the source of renewal for our churches and our 'life together in faith, hope and love'."
"May it pave the way for respect and compassion toward every human being so that all people may be welcomed, honoured and embraced as unique pieces of a sacred puzzle constituting the marvelous mystery of God's wonderful creation," he concluded.

June 2 - THE RE-UNIFICATION OF CHRISTIANITY?
Article: ONE WORLD RELIGION
Are we witnessing the beginning of Christian re-unification with the Roman Catholic Church?
In the era of the “New Evangelization,” as described by George Weigel and other Catholic commentators, the Church is undergoing a transformation. As a result of Vatican II, Catholics like myself have realized the need to evangelize in a world controlled by the dictatorship of relativism. Indeed, the Catholic Church is the greatest warrior for God’s objective truth in the world today.
But what about Orthodox Christians, Anglicans, Protestants, and Evangelicals? Where do they fit in this global struggle for the truth? Just last week, Pope Francis and Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople agreed to schedule an “ecumenical meeting” in Nicaea in the year 2025. Patriarch Bartholomew revealed that he and the Roman Pontiff had "agreed to leave as a legacy to ourselves and our successors a gathering in Nicaea in 2025, where the Creed was first promulgated."

“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6
EXCERPTS FROM ARTICLE: Pope Francis is a man on a mission to fulfill bible prophecy, and he is getting more done than any other Pope in the last 100 years. Pope Francis is here to make some serious and drastic changes not only in the Catholic Vatican system, in the professing Christianity as well. He is creating the One World Religion.
EXCERPT: The bible, in Revelation 17 and 18, talks about a harlot church that rules the spiritual world. She is wealthy beyond description, and all the kings and mighty men of the earth want to be in a spiritual bed with her. The bible says that she is a city that “sitteth on seven hills”, and is “drunk with the blood of the saints”. This can only be one system, one place, one church – the Roman Catholic Church whose Vatican headquarters sits on the famed Seven Hills in Rome.
Pope Francis’s call for unity goes beyond the Christian community. During his recent visit to the Middle East, Francis invited Israeli Jewish and Muslim leaders to join him in prayer for peace for their region at the Vatican this Sunday. Israel’s Chief of State Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Abu Mazen will be joined by a delegation of rabbis, Islamic imams, and Israeli Druze community leaders, according to news reports.
This week, not only did Pope Francis hold ecumenical services in the Vatican where he prayed to the moon god of Islam, Allah, he also held high level meetings with megachurch pastor Joel Osteen and US Senator Mike Lee who was there to represent the Mormon church. The actors have taken the stage, with more still arriving, in the unfolding of what will one day soon be the wildest bible prophecy ever told – the Great Tribulation.
Joel Osteen was enthralled with the fact that Pope Francis is so inclusive:
““I like the fact that this pope is trying to make the church larger, not smaller. He’s not pushing people out but making the church more inclusive. That resonated with me,” Osteen told the Houston Chronicle.
The Christian Post reports that according to Westmont College, Francis had invited more than a dozen “North American Protestant leaders” to discuss the question: “Can we find common ground in order to advance the life and ministry of Jesus so more people can experience the joy of Christian faith?”
The ecumenical meeting was a part of Pope Francis’ on-going efforts to bring unity among Christians, previously stating in public remarks, “Divisions among us, but also divisions among the communities: evangelical Christians, orthodox Christians, Catholic Christians, but why divided? We must try to bring about unity.”
However, Pope Francis’s call for unity goes beyond the Christian community. During his recent visit to the Middle East, Francis invited Israeli Jewish and Muslim leaders to join him in prayer for peace for their region at the Vatican this Sunday. Israel’s Chief of State Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Abu Mazen will be joined by a delegation of rabbis, Islamic imams, and Israeli Druze community leaders, according to news reports.

EXCERPT: It was a highly newsworthy item. Secular news agencies around the world reported on this very religious matter. A rift between Roman Catholics and Anglicans was soon to come to an end.
A document titled Mary: Hope and Grace in Christ was finally published after six years of discussion. Centuries of Anglican dissent over the Roman Catholic view of Mary would soon be history. According to an article titled “Anglicans invited to take Catholic view of Mary,” a major step towards reunion with the Mother of All Churches was about to be accomplished. Quoting from the document:
"There is no continuing theological reason for ecclesial division" over the role of the Virgin Mary. "We do not consider the practice of asking Mary and the saints to pray for us as communion dividing," it says. The document also describes private devotions inspired by apparitions of Mary as "acceptable” 
EXCERPT: But there was more. The document stated that the infallible dogmas of the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption – the teachings that Mary was herself conceived “without sin” and that on death she was “assumed” body and soul into Heaven – are consistent with the teachings of Scripture. 
The article said that the Mary: Hope and Grace in Christ document was not intended to be authoritative but to be the basis for discussion. The authors of the document admitted openly to the hope that the Roman Catholic Church and Anglicans will recognize a “common faith” concerning Mary. 
The article also reported that Catholic Bishop Malcolm McMahon, a member of the committee that drafted the document, said that “Mary need no longer be considered an obstacle to unity between Anglicans and Catholics. He said, “What we have done is put down a paving stone on the road to Christian unity.” 
Speaking of Christian unity, we hear a lot about this subject these days. Especially since Pope Benedict XVI came on the scene as the head of the Roman Catholic Church. He announced that unification of Christianity is a priority. But as one can easily see, unity when the Roman Catholic Church is involved means embracing Roman Catholic dogma and tradition. If the Anglicans are willing to embrace “Mary” as the mother of the one true church, what about other denominations. Are there any signs this could happen?
The answer to that question should be evident. In case you have not read it, check out - Time magazine, March 21, 2005. This is what you will read on the cover: “Hail Mary – Catholics have long revered her, but now Protestants are finding their own reasons to celebrate the mother of Jesus.” Then flip over to page 61 and read the subtitle: “She was there at the Cross. Yet Protestants seldom talk about Jesus’ mother at Easter – or at most other times. But they are starting to now.”
EXCERPT: So, I would like to make a prediction based on current events and the facts. Anglicans have already joined arms with Roman Catholics to embrace an extra-biblical “Mary.” I don’t think it will be too much longer when more of the “separated brethren” sign a pact with Rome and come home as well.

EXCERPT: It is called the ‘House of One’
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:5,6
For many years now, NTEB has sounded the shofar to warn believers and non-believers alike of the coming One World Religion of Chrislam, the bastard hybrid of Islam and Christianity/Judaism. We have given you countless verified accounts of the efforts of early Chrislam founder and champion Rick Warren to prepare the Christians to accept this new religious paradigm.
EXCERPT: We have given you audio proof, video proof, and interview accounts from major news outlets around the world. We even pulled back the curtain on all the efforts of Pope Francis and the influence of the Vatican to drive through the creation of the One World Religion mentioned in the book of Revelation.
Have you paid attention? Are you listening?
Today’s bombshell is the natural next-step in the evolution of the One World Religion – a temple to call their very own. And where better to build that abomination than in the city that is most famous for introducing the world to Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust but in Berlin, Germany. If the irony of that doesn’t punch your buttons, then you need to go look up the definition of the word “irony”. Seriously, could it be any plainer, any more in-your-face than that?
EXCERPT: Laying the groundwork for the One World Religion
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17
The New York Times today reports that demon-obsessed Pope Francis has gone into the exorcism business:
The Vatican has formally recognized the International Association of Exorcists, a group of 250 priests in 30 countries who liberate the faithful from demons. The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano reported Tuesday that the Vatican’s Congregation for Clergy had approved the organization’s statutes and recognized the group under canon law.
If you have been paying attention to what’s been happening since Francis became the Pope, then you know some very radical things are happening.
EXCERPT: In this image made from video provided by APTN, Pope Francis lays his hands on the head of a young man on Sunday, May 19, 2013, after celebrating Mass in St. Peter’s Square. The young man heaved deeply a half-dozen times, convulsed and shook, and then slumped in his wheelchair as Francis prayed over him. The television station of the Italian bishops’ conference said it had surveyed exorcists, who agreed Francis either performed an exorcism or a prayer to free the man from the devil.” (AP Photo/APTN)
The Roman Pope has said that unbelievers go to heaven, aliens will be baptized, all religions must come back to Rome, and promoting Chrislam. As if all that wasn’t enough, Francis has just given the official Vatican stamp to a world-wide group of exorcists.
Pope Francis is obviously building something new as he pushes out the tent posts of the Roman Catholic system to include just about everyone and anyone. His new structure is what the bible calls the One World Religion of the False Prophet.
“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” Revelation 13:14
When you know that bible says that the False Prophet will deceive with “signs, miracles and wonders”, you immediately understand the Pope’s desire to be in the exorcism business.

August 17 - Thai pilgrims: Pope not just for Catholics, but for the world
A group of pilgrims who traveled from Thailand to participate in events surrounding Pope Francis’ visit have expressed their joy at seeing him, particularly for the beatification of 124 Korean martyrs.
“It is the first time have attended such a huge event with so many people. And I just heard on the news that about 1 million people attended the mass, and only about 17 to 19 percent of them were Catholics,” one of the group members, Theresa, told CNA Aug. 17.
“I think that the Pope is not just for Catholics, but for the world. He is for peace, and his kindness to the whole of humanity” displays that, she said.

August 21 - US Bishops Reaffirm Commitment to Dialogue With Muslims
Article: Ecumenical Movement - Other Religions Uniting With Roman Catholics
The Committee on Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) reasserted their commitment to dialogue with other religions and Muslims in particular in a statement developed between October 2013 and its release Tuesday.
The committee, which is chaired by Auxiliary Bishop Denis Madden of Baltimore, Maryland, listed tensions between Christians in Muslims in different parts of the world as a primary reason for reaffirming the need for dialogue.

In Berlin, plans are under way to build a new house of worship that will host three religions: 'We want to show that faith doesn't divide Jews, Christians, and Muslims, but instead reconciles them,' says a Christian bishop.
