One World Government/One World Religion

In my last post I shared a smidgen of info. about Tony Blair's (the former Prime Minister of England) Faith Foundation, an organization that is actively pushing the One World Religion concept (which will be/IS integrally intermixed with "One World" politics, ie., "Globalism"), and the involvement of Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Community Church, Author of "The Purpose Driven Church" and "The Purpose Driven Life." Just a five minute perusal of the website will suffice to demonstrate that there is a very real and growing phenomenon that is colloquially called "Globalism" or "One Worldism" or "Global Community" etc.

As I have been watching the things that are going on in the world, both within politics, and the "Church", I have noticed that things are shaping up to form the beginning outline of the coming One World Government, Religion, and Economy spoken of (primarily) by Daniel the Prophet, and the Apostle John in the book of Revelation.

I am beginning to think that the Religious system of the Beast will be not simply one religion becoming the dominant one, with everyone converting to it, but rather, all the major religions synthesizing together. In other words, Christians won't have to leave Christianity, they will simply be persuaded to align themselves together with Muslims, Buddhists, etc. for the common "good" of mankind.

Consider the following quote, one that I shared in my last post from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation website:

Globalisation (sic) pushes people closer together. Religious faith motivates and influences billions of people in different ways. The ways in which these two great forces interract (sic) with each other and shape the world - for good and for ill - are complex. Our aim is to provide ways to understand more about religion’s relevance to the modern world, and to organise (sic) practical projects so that people of different faiths can work together to be a force for good across the globe. All our activities are designed to realise (sic) these core goals.” (Emphasis mine)

I am currently reading a book by Constance Cumbey titled "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow" (which can be downloaded in PDF format for free here), first published in 1983. The book documents the increase in New Age infiltration into Government, and ecumenical efforts of the top leaders within various religious groups, including Evangelical Christianity! In her book, Constance begins by sharing the complete text of a full-page ad placed in various newspapers, sharing the message that the "Christ" (whom those that placed the ad called the "Maitreya") was about to appear on the world scene (this was in '82, and it is interesting to note that just a few months ago, it was reported that CNN was supposed to begin playing t.v. commercials proclaiming that "The Maitreya" was going to be revealed to the world very soon). The ad can also be downloaded at the above link. Here is a quote from the ad:

"What Is He [The Maitreya] Saying? 'My task will be to show you how to live together peacefully as brothers. This is simpler than you imagine, My friends, for it requires only the acceptance of sharing' " (emphasis mine).

Notice how the quote from the ad proclaiming the soon unveiling of the "Maitreya" (who is supposed to be a "Christ" or "Messiah" figure. Just listen to the following quote, also from the 1982 newspaper ad: "At the center of this "Spiritual Hierarchy" stands the World Teacher, LORD MAITREYA, known by Christians as the CHRIST. And as Christians await the Second Coming, so the Jews await the MESSIAH, the Buddhists the FIFTH BUDDHA, the Moslems the IMAM MAHDI, and the Hindus await KRISHNA. These are all names for the one individual. His presence in the world guarantees there will be no third World War.") is similar to the quote from Tony Blair's Faith Foundation website, the very foundation wherein Pastor Rick Warren sits on "The Religious Advisory Council." Is this how we are going to be incorporated into the coming "one world religion?" I contend that the one world religion already exists - we are only now beginning to see it being implemented. Buddhist leaders, Hindu leaders, Islamic leaders, Jewish Rabbi's, and Christian Evangelical leaders as well as Roman Catholic leaders are all playing their part in drawing multitudes from within the various "faith traditions" into this one world faith.

More on this to come later, as I begin to learn more about this insidious, demonic and deceptive movement. For now I want to implore you to get into your bible daily. Ask the LORD for wisdom and discernment (He promises it to those that seek Him for it). And do not simply follow supposed "Evangelical Christian leaders" blindly - test the spirits (1 John 4:1), yea, test ALL things (1 Thess. 5:21)!

Yeshua be with us, and Yeshua, come quickly - Maranatha!

Tony Blair's "Faith Foundation" (and Rick Warren's involvement)

The following is a statement from Tony Blair's Faith Foundation website (which can be accessed here).

Globalisation (sic) pushes people closer together. Religious faith motivates and influences billions of people in different ways. The ways in which these two great forces interract (sic) with each other and shape the world - for good and for ill - are complex. Our aim is to provide ways to understand more about religion’s relevance to the modern world, and to organise (sic) practical projects so that people of different faiths can work together to be a force for good across the globe. All our activities are designed to realise these core goals.” (Emphasis mine)

Pastor Rick Warren, of Saddleback Church is on the "Religious Advisory Council" for this organization, as shown in this list from the website (where I've highlighted his name):
The Religious Advisory Council
Anantanand Rambachan, Professor and Chair of the Religion Department at St. Olaf College, Minnesota
The Reverend David Coffey, President of the Baptist World Alliance
Rabbi David Rosen, Chairman of the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations
Dr Ismail Khudr AL-Shatti, Advisor in Diwan of HH the Prime Minister of Kuwait and former President of the Gulf Institute for Futures and Strategic Studies
Professor Jagtar Singh Grewal, former Chairman of the India Institute of Advanced Study and former Vice-Chancellor of Guru Nanak Dev University
Roshi Joan Halifax, Abbot of the Upaya Zen Center
The Reverend Joel Edwards, Director of Micah Challenge International and former General Director of the Evangelical Alliance.
Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth
Right Reverend Josiah Idowu-Fearon, Bishop of Kaduna
HE Dr Mustafa Ceric, Grand Mufti of Bosnia-Herzegovina
The Reverend Dr Rick Warren, Founding and Senior Pastor of Saddleback Church and Founder of the P.E.A.C.E Coalition.
The Right Reverend and Right Honourable Richard Chartres, Lord Bishop of London

Here is a quote from Mr. Warren from the website:
"The vision and values of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation are desperately needed today when every major issue in our world is influenced for good or harm by faith factors. It would be foolish to ignore how religious conviction impacts personal and National identity, poverty and education, extremism and reconciliation, disease and development, peace and progress.”
Dr Rick Warren, founder of Saddleback Church and the P.E.A.C.E. Coalition

Just thought you might want to know where some of America's "top" "Christian" "leaders" are taking us (if you are inclined to follow them).

"My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away [on] the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace. All that found them have devoured them: and their adversaries said, We offend not, because they have sinned against the LORD, the habitation of justice, even the LORD, the hope of their fathers." -Jer. 50:6,7

This week began the first Torah portion of the year (it began after the Feast of Tabernacles, which ended last Sat. evening), which covered Genesis 1:1 - 6:8.

Chapter 4 of Genesis is the story (teaching) of Cain and Abel. If you are at all familiar with the story (who isn't?), then you are aware that Abel's offering was accepted by the LORD, but Cain's was not. There have been two primary reasons (interpretations) given for why this was so:

1) Abel offered "...of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof" (vs. 4) but Cain offered of "... the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD." (vs. 3) It is proposed that Abel's offering was accepted because it was of his flock, ie., it was an animal sacrifice, while Cain's was not.

2) Abel's offering was accepted because it was "of faith" while Cain's was not.

Of the two, I have to say that I disagree with the first interpretation for several reasons. First, the text never says that they were offering sacrifices for sin (which would require the blood of an animal). Second, They were simply making (what appears to be freewill) offerings, of which, both offerings from your flock or field were acceptable (cf. Lev. 2:1 for an example of a grain offering). Third, God basically told Cain that if he did "well" he would be accepted (cf. vs.7). He didn't tell Cain that his offering was not accepted because he offered the wrong thing! It appears that something was amiss in Cain's attitude, life...something. God offers Cain the opportunity to change something in his life that would make his offering "accepted" (again, cf. vs. 7). In addition, Hebrews 11:4 tells us that "By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain...."

Most people consider "faith" to be synonymous with "belief." If someone says that they believe in God, they are thought of as someone who has "faith." It is apparent from the story of Cain and Abel that they both believed in God. They both made an offering unto Him... they both must have believed in Him. If mere belief were synonymous with faith (at least, true, biblical faith), then surely Cain's offering would have been accepted, right?

It is true that in the NT, we read passage after passage that speaks of "believing" in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is also true however, by Jesus' (Yeshua) own words, and the book of James (Jacob), and even Paul's writings that (actually, the whole NT for that matter!) that "belief", or "believing" in the biblical sense IS faith, but mere belief is not.

You may be wondering what the difference is. Really, the Bible tells us over and over again - unfortunately, I think the gospel message (and correspondingly, the biblical message) has been made into a simple "belief" system. What I mean is, Christianity today has largely taught (whether intentionally or unintentionally) that if you simply "believe" in Jesus, and say a prayer, and get baptized, you are "saved." They make it a one time event, and as long as the person doesn't transgress a short list of sins, they are a "Christian."

I wonder if Cain's family thought everything was o.k. with Cain? I wonder if they thought "how nice. He must really love the LORD. Look, he's bringing an offering to present before Him." Some commentators even teach that Eve (Chavah) believed that Cain was/would be the promised "seed" of Genesis 3:15.

James tells us in ch.2, vs. 19 that the "devils (demons) believe, and tremble." Would anyone argue that the Demons are "saved?" If we were to read James ch. 2, we would see that true "belief" (true, biblical faith) is to believe God, and obey His word. We don't obey His commandments in order to become saved (the point Paul was often trying to make). We believe God, and then live by faith. And biblical faith is faithfulness - faithfulness to walk with God and obey Him.

Yeshua said that if we "...continue in [His] word, then are [we His] disciples indeed..." (John 8:31). He also said that if we love Him, we will keep His commandments (cf. Jn. 14:15,21;15:10 et al).

Both Cain and Abel brought an offering (both offerings were acceptable by biblical standards) to the LORD. Yet one was accepted, the other rejected. We get further insight into this in 1 John 3:11,12 - "For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous."

What "works" of Cain's were evil? Was it the offering he presented? Certainly not. His lifestyle was one marked by "evil works" yet he feigned faith in the LORD by bringing an offering to present before Him along with his brother Abel.

True faith, in the biblical sense, is faithfulness, a continuance not only in ones belief in God (and more explicitly, faith in His Son Yeshua), but also a continuance in His word through obedience to it. To profess faith in God, and to even make "offerings" to Him (our money, time, etc.) while living a life seperate, and out of sync with His written word, is to fool oneself, and others.

Yeshua said that there would come the day when many would say to Him "Lord, Lord..." and yet He would reply to them "depart from me, you worker of lawlessness, I never knew you" (cf. Matt. 7:23; Luke 13:27).

Are you a Cain, or Abel?

Read this article and give it a whirl in your brain. And while you're at it, give this one a read as well.

...seems to be nothing more than Paganism, Humanism, and plain - simple ol' rebellion21!

View here to see what I mean.

Just a quick view of the speaker's bios will give you an idea of where this conference is coming from.

For those that are gutless, rebellious, confused, and hate the God of the Bible, this seems to be the conference for you.

For those that love God, and love TRUTH, no matter what, then I say stick with the Word of God, and STAND FIRMLY ON IT!
