Welcome to the New Year, 2019! May you and yours be blessed in faith of God’s eternal truths! I pray the eyes of your heart, mind and soul are open to realize that we live in the last days, but more specifically, that ours is the final generation of this present age according to the testimony of Christ in His parable of the fig tree at Matt. 24:32–35.
To begin the New Year, I want to address two issues: 1) why I write thefridayletter.com, and 2) the snare of indoctrination, a dangerous place of Christian and social beliefs that restricts one’s ability to believe anything beyond the indoctrination in which he or she was taught to believe.
First, I write thefridayletter.com because, in Christ, I love you and care deeply about the eternal destiny of both believers and unbelievers. I’ve invested time, study and prayer to learn that we must endure the final seven years of this age, and that there will not be a pre-tribulation rapture as promised by most denominational churches; a message for which there is not a single verse of Scripture. Yet, unsuspecting millions have been indoctrinated to believe the totally false pre-trib rapture; their hope is built, not on Jesus’ Words, but on the sinking sands of the tradition of men.
I also take with deep sobriety the promise of Jesus that in the final seven years “many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another” (Matt. 24:10). I don’t want that to occur with even one person in my sphere of influence. Yet, I know that “concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him…that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition” (2 Thess. 2:3).
I want to help people believe Christ who is the truth, to personalize His testimony and not relegate it to others, as do those of dispensationalism. I know too that the wickedness of Nimrod who built the Tower of Babel and changed his DNA when he “began to be a mighty one” (Gen. 10:8) is today actively at work to transform mankind’s DNA to being a god gaining immortality. Technologically, humanity has returned to the transhuman days of Noah, and the transgender days of Lot, both of which Jesus said would mark the end of this present age.
The times of the end require sincere preparation, but the Church is not addressing truths of the tribulation that will soon envelop the world. And multitudes will be deeply offended when the reality of the end-times breaks upon them. Globalists, by the spirit of Antichrist are creating the New World Order as God lessens His restraint on Satan for his unfettered seven-year reign.
Secondly, false indoctrination must be exposed, (Eph. 5:11). Webster says indoctrination is: “to instruct in fundamentals or rudiments…to imbue with a partisan or sectarian opinion”. Truth be known, we were all once falsely indoctrinated toward one thing or another. For example, much of what we’ve been taught to believe about the founding of America is false. Most of America’s founding fathers did not honor Christ, but served the Freemason’s god, the Great Architect of the Universe, none other than Lucifer, the Light Bearer.
Freemasons, like Mormons, believe in man’s deification to becoming gods. This is seen in the artist Brumidi’s Apotheosis of Washington in the Rotunda dome of the U.S. Capitol, see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Apotheosis_of_Washington. The scenes surrounding George Washington ascending (among other gods) to his own state of godhood are not Godly, but evil. George Washington was a Master Freemason. His apotheosis (deification) is surrounded by 72 satanic pentagrams, which is a highly ritualistic number in the occult and Freemasonry. This is why many dignitaries “lie in state” in the Capitol Rotunda, that they, like Washington, can also allegedly ascend to their deification of god among other gods of the esoteric enlightened ones.
Secret societies and their Luciferian agendas formed the foundation and direction of America, the democratic experiment of visionaries like Freemasons Francis Bacon and Albert Pike. 33rd Degree Freemason, Manly P. Hall’s book, The Secret Destiny of America shares those chilling details. Freemasons, Skull and Bones, the Illuminati, the Bilderberg’s, Bohemian Groove, the Rosicrucians and others, have, by satanic powers, revived the New World Order, the ancient fourth beast kingdom of the Prophet Daniel. Our sterilized history of indoctrination, together with those who perpetuate the false narrative, continue this great deception.
Our culture has been indoctrinated to believe government, its presidents, legislators, judges, the FBI, the CIA, the FDA, educators, preachers, doctors and others in positions of authority, only to now realize that “We the people…” have been misled, lied to and subjected to much fake news. We’ve been lied to about our founding fathers, our wars, education, vaccines, foods, politics and much more. And many of us have awakened to the fact that there’s a wicked Deep State secretly at work at every level of global society to destroy nationalism and usher in end-time globalism.
As Christians, we shouldn’t be surprised, knowing that Satan, the god of this age is a liar and the father of lies, (John 8:44), for “the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one” (1 John 5:19). Therein, God said “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth [and this includes U.S. presidents, legislators and politicians] set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, ‘Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us” (Psa. 2:1–3). And for our benefit, Jesus instructs us to “know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).
Just for one example, not to even mention the false narratives we have been fed regarding wars in which hundreds of millions of people have been destroyed, consider that, for the last 46 years Roe v. Wade has been American law! America has outright murdered tens of millions of unborn innocent babies in the womb and continues unabated! Yet, the majority of American politicians continue looking the other way as if all were normal and as it should be!
Consider too that America was birthed at the theft of, and often death and destruction of the Native American people, not to mention the outright rebellion against the authority of England. Yet, many pastors and teachers will remind their flocks to be subject to “governing authorities” according to Rom. 13:1–7. But post-Calvary, murders and wars are the work of satanic powers.
As for religious indoctrination? For over sixteen centuries Roman Catholic popes lorded their falsehoods and evil dictates over the common man and woman absent the ability to know the truth for lack of personal Bibles. But Johannes Gutenberg’s printed Bible changed all that in the 1450’s, but he immediately became a marked man for destruction by the papal throne. In fact, anyone who opposed Catholicism’s popes was marked for death, often executed by Jesuit priests of the Society of Jesus, a Roman Catholic death squad established in 1540 by Ignatius of Loyola.
Enter the Reformation and Roman Catholic popes lost their tyrannical grip on the common man and woman. Their indoctrination of indulgences, transubstantiation and many other false forms of worship and idolatry was finally broken to the glory of God! In the process of leaving Roman Catholicism, however, tens of millions were murdered for their newfound freedom in Christ as the papal throne was relentless in its merciless pursuit of true Christians. That day is returning.
Enter the pride, violence and disunity among Reformed leaders as each created his own denomination. From the Anabaptists who were conscientious objectors to military violence, to John Calvin who shamelessly incited the government of Geneva, Switzerland to burn at the stake and execute those he judged as heretics, to others less violent, each reformer established his own indoctrination, to gain his own following, to form his own church, and his own doctrine. As a result, today there are thousands of denominations. This link provides just a few of the many: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Christian_denominations_by_number_of_members
Why is this important today? Because, for those of us who grew up in the Church, we were by default indoctrinated by one of those denominations. Some of us have left the one in which we grew up to join another. Some have left denominational membership altogether, realizing that much of what’s taught today does not agree with God’s Word. Others find psychological security in denominational indoctrination, even to the point where they reject the possibility of anything other than their indoctrination…even to the rejection of the contextual Words of Jesus Christ!
Things I’ve shared today about America’s founding fathers and the Church are not conspiracy theories, but real truths–truths that require study, research and sincere Spirit-led work to expose false teachings and false indoctrination with power to hold people captive to unbelief. Speaking of Satan’s deceptions, God said “we are not ignorant of his devices” (2 Cor. 2:11), yet, many professing Christians are indeed unaware of Satan’s devices, otherwise they’d believe Jesus.
Pray that God helps people believe that, Christ “must remain in heaven until the time comes for God to restore everything” (Acts 3:21 NIV), which occurs “Immediately after the tribulation” (Matt. 24:29–31); for only then “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first” (1 Thess. 4:16); at “the first resurrection” (Rev. 20:4–6); “at the last day” (John 6:40, 44, 54); “at the last trumpet” (1 Cor. 15:51–52); when “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever!” (Rev. 11:15).
