What ALL Christians need to understand: There never is and never has been a visible global Christian “Church”. that is why you see what appear to be “good” sound teachers like Leonard Ravenhill mixing with people and groups who teach and preach concepts and ideas that are diametrically opposed to God’s Word!

Men are inherently weak, and it is why men who rise to a “high seat” or a position of prominence within what is recognized as the “Christian world” start to compromise their beliefs. They either subconsciously rationalize others non-Biblical teachings or views, or they openly ignore them. They do this as they do not want to lose their position, or they rationalize the “good” that is being done, overrides the non-biblical positions that those that they associate with, hold! In the end each Christian must have the mind: No matter what ANYONE else does or believes, I WILL FOLLOW God’s WORD! Even if that means I do it alone!

There are theological differences within his teaches I would not call him an outright heretic but I have been cautious 1) Leonard has taught and recommended Rhanhard Bonki, Bonki was later exposed in faking claims that the dead were raised in South Africa as one of many examples, I have found dubious claims Ravenhill had made about Bonki, means that i believe out of genuine ignorance Ravenhill was speaking in ignorance, but this is not a good move from a bible teacher.,

Though I do agree with Leonard Ravenhills teaching on Godly, Righteous hatred and sinners, I do not accept the whole proponent of the Holiness movement through his teaching that gave birth later to Lordship Salvation, Lordship salvation can be traced and rooted in a man who claimed himself to be a mystic Charles Finney

I do however regard the doctrine of Lordship salvation as heretical and is a doctrine pushed by neo Calvinists, it was not until Billy Graham had made it popular that since McArthur had made it in recent years accepted amongst many protestant churches that had further encapsulated our unity with the RCC, in which I believe Ravenhill was a key proponent of the ecumenical movement, due to people who had been led into error by Ravenhills promotion of Paul Cain, and Mystic George Fox who was a Quaker.

However, Raven hill is not a false prophet due to never making predictions or putting dates on further as men like Jonathan Khan has done,  on the other hand, Ravenhill has spoken at John Wimber’s Vineyard Church, which was founded by the Late Lonnie Frisby who struggled with homosexuality at the time, Lonnie was never mentioned by Vinyard for obvious reasons.

Leonard Ravenhill has often been promoted by Paul Washer who has been partnering with Roman Catholic backed Martin Bucer Seminary The seminary is presided over by the virulent Dr. Thomas Schirrmacher. Schirrmacher is a premier ecumenical leader and a personal friend of Pope Francis. 

We recently released a video (April 22, 2018) which Highlighted Paul Washer’s slated speaking at the Cross ’19 Conference wherein will be several who routinely partner with Hillsong, Jesus Culture, The Passion Conference and other heretical organizations. Among those listed are Trip Lee, whom Washer calls a personal friend. Trip Lee is a good friend and promoter of both Hillsong and Jesus Culture, and Paul has NEVER publicly addressed this nor does he seem to care. The social justice, Marxist embracing bag of folly that is Thabiti Anyabwile is also scheduled to speak at Cross ’19, as is John Piper, the Rick Warren-promoting, Lectio Divina-practicing friend of Carl Lentz and Louie Giglio the Pope-kisser. The M.O. these days is that of Eli with his sons; simply turn a blind-eye to sin because of “cowardice or self-preservation” (to quote Paul Washer). The various compromises and heresy embracing being propagated by the profiteers at this conference were highlighted, and it had quite an impact.

The latest installment showcases Heart Cry Missionary Society’s open partnership with Martin Bucer Seminary whose president is Dr. Thomas Schirrmacher. For those who have not seen the video, I must implore you to watch it immediately (click the red link above). Thomas Schirrmacher is a personal friend and advocate of Pope Francis and all things both Catholic and ecumenical. In addition to presiding over the Martin Bucer Seminary he is on the senior leadership team of the World Evangelical Alliance and a committee member of the Global Christian Forum, both of which are in partnership with the ever ecumenical and demonic World Council of Churches. The term “demonic” is not used lightly. It must be understood that the three aforementioned organizations are, without question, working in accord with the spirit of antichrist. They are global in nature as all of their names imply and their objective is to usher in a global religion under the guise of “unity.”

Thomas Schirrmacher Loves Pope Francis
its sad that the Ravenhill Rabbit hole has lead to compromise, but as the scriptures say you will know them by there fruits, we know that Ravenhill in the past has promoted Billy Graham.

the end result is many roads lead to rome.

from The Most Important News:

If we accept what they are doing to us now, they are just going to keep pushing the envelope.  Over the past 12 months, authorities throughout the western world have used the pandemic as an excuse to impose Orwellian measures that we never would have accepted during normal times.  They are promising us that these measures are just “temporary”, but the pandemic has already been with us for a year and there are no signs that it is going away any time soon.  If those governing us are willing to go to such ridiculous extremes during a relatively minor pandemic, what are they going to be willing to do once things start getting really crazy?

Watching the events that have unfolded at a church in Edmonton in recent days has been a breaking point for me emotionally.

Last Wednesday, the RCMP received global attention when it put up a three layer fence around GraceLife Church in an attempt to keep people out.

I don’t know why they decided that one fence would not be sufficient.  Apparently having Christians gather together is so dangerous that three fences were needed.

Needless to say, this draconian move made a lot of headlines, and on Sunday approximately 400 Christians gathered to protest at the church.  Most of them were just singing hymns or reading the Bible, but when a few of them started tearing down one of the fences, 200 heavily-armed riot police moved in.

I would expect to see this sort of a scene in communist China, North Korea or Iran.

This sort of thing was never supposed to happen in Canada.

Out of 4.4 million people living in Alberta, there have only been 2,013 deaths, and about half of those were among people 80 years of age or older.

If it isn’t safe to go to church, why are hordes of Canadians allowed to circulate through retail establishments every single day of the week?

If churches should be shut down, you would think that Wal-Mart, Costco and Canadian Tire should be shut down too.

But they aren’t shut down.

All over the western world, we are being promised that life will finally go back to “normal” once the pandemic is over, and they are telling us that the vaccines will end the pandemic.

But that isn’t happening.  Cases are on the rise again, and thousands are still getting sick even though they have been “fully vaccinated”.

And now Pfizer and Moderna are publicly admitting that their vaccines only provide about six months of immunity

According to new research from Pfizer and Moderna, it looks like COVID-19 immunity will last at least six months in fully vaccinated people, though studies are ongoing. In a statement released by Pfizer-BioNTech on Thursday, immunity against the coronavirus is confirmed to last at least half a year for people who have been fully vaccinated with the Pfizer shot.

Most people that are getting shots think that they now have some sort of permanent immunity, but that isn’t even close to accurate.

Meanwhile, variants continue to emerge around the globe that the current vaccines won’t be effective against at all.

I know that a lot of you don’t want to hear this, but the pandemic is with us to stay.

And that means that the Orwellian measures that are being put in place are with us to stay too.

Over in the UK, one recent survey found that a majority of the British population is actually in favor of a permanent vaccine passport system

Another disturbing survey has revealed that a majority of British people are willing to accept vaccine passports in order to engage in basic day to day activities, and that they are willing to go along with the digital ID card system PERMANENTLY.

The London Independent poll, conducted by pollster Savanta ComRes, highlighted the findings, with 56 per cent saying that it would be acceptable to have to prove vaccination or negative COVID status in order to enter a shop.

Fewer than a third, 32 per cent, said that this would be unacceptable, according to the survey.

What in the world has happened to the British?

Here in the U.S., researchers are developing an implantable sensor that can tell if you are sick or not.  If you do not know about this yet, I would highly recommend watching this 60 Minutes report.

In Australia, the Orwellian measures that they have instituted during this pandemic have regularly made headlines all over the globe, and now they are considering doing something that is completely insane.

I had a hard time believing this when I first read it.  According to an Australian news source, the government is actually considering requiring people to provide “100 points of identification” before they are allowed to access social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter or Instagram…

The Morrison Government will consider a radical measure to prevent online bullying and trolling, but experts say the proposal would involve serious risks for social media users.

The government is considering forcing users of social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram — as well as online dating platforms like Tinder — to upload 100 points of identification in order to use them.

The recommendation, which has been raised before, is one of 88 recommendations from a parliamentary committee report looking at family, domestic and sexual violence.

This is the direction that our world is headed.

For a long time we enjoyed an Internet that was relatively free and open, but now that era has ended.

Now tyrants all over the globe are seeing that the Internet can be used as a tool of control, and that should deeply alarm all of us.

Over the past 12 months, the pandemic has been used as justification to advance tyranny by leaps and bounds.

If this is what has happened during a relatively minor pandemic, what is going to take place once a true global emergency comes along?

We should all consider that very carefully, because we are moving into very dark times, and government tyranny is only going to get worse.

from Summit News:

“You put it underneath your skin and what that tells you is that there are chemical reactions going on inside the body”

The Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is working on a COVID vaccine that will work on all variants and has developed an implantable microchip that it says will continuously monitor the human body for signs of the virus.

Retired Colonel Matt Hepburn, an army infectious disease physician heading up DARPA’s response to the pandemic, appeared on 60 Minutes to demonstrate the technology.

Holding up a vial of green tissue-like gel, which contains the chip, Hepburn proclaimed “You put it underneath your skin and what that tells you is that there are chemical reactions going on inside the body, and that signal means you are going to have symptoms tomorrow.”

“It’s like a ‘check engine’ light,” Hepburn added, noting that those with the chip “would get the signal, then self-administer a blood draw and test themselves on site.”

“We can have that information in three to five minutes,” Hepburn continued, adding “As you truncate that time, as you diagnose and treat, what you do is you stop the infection in its tracks.”

Watch:

Hepburn also declared that DARPA has developed a filter to remove the virus from the blood via a dialysis machine, and that the FDA has approved it, and it has already been used on 300 patients.

The 60 Minitues report also highlights how the pentagon has hundreds of tissue samples from soldiers and sailors infected with pathogens all over the world, including the 1918 Spanish Flu which killed millions globally.

Pentagon scientist Dr Kayvon Modjarrad also highlighted that the military is developing a one size fits all vaccine for COVID, commenting “This is not science fiction, this is science fact.”

“We have the tools, we have the technology, to do this all right now,” he said explaining that the goal is to inoculate people against potentially deadly viruses that have not even appeared yet.

“Killer viruses that we haven’t seen or even imagined, we’ll be protected against,” Modjarrad declared.

It was recently revealed that a third of active duty service members opted out of taking the COVID vaccine, with sources claiming the actual figure is probably closer to half.

The finding prompted the likes of TIME to declare that ‘vaccine hesitancy’ is threatening national security, and that while “These troops may not be co-opted by domestic terrorists, but they are clearly influenced by conspiracy theorists online and they just don’t trust basic science.”

The DARPA announcement of implantable microchip technology tied to the virus and a vaccine will likely only serve to enforce concerns the media continually describes as ‘conspiracy theories.’

from The Epoch Times:

The Supreme Court late Friday ruled against California, blocking the restrictions ban on in-home Bible studies and other religious gatherings.

The court’s narrow 5–4 ruling was in favor of a group of Santa Clara residents who asserted the restrictions violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

“Applicants are likely to succeed on the merits of their free exercise claim; they are irreparably harmed by the loss of free exercise rights ‘for even minimal periods of time’; the State has not shown that ‘public health would be imperiled’ by employing less restrictive measures,” an unsigned opinion of the court’s majority said in its opinion.

The ruling is the fifth time the nation’s highest court has overruled the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on California COVID-19 fueled restrictions, including a February ruling that saw the court grant a worshipper’s application asking for restrictions on in-person religious services be rolled back.

“It is unsurprising that such litigants are entitled to relief. California’s Blueprint System contains myriad exceptions and accommodations for comparable activities, thus requiring the application of strict scrutiny,” the majority wrote on Friday.

The blueprint system is the statewide criteria for loosening or tightening restrictions based on the level of CCP virus spread.

Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and Amy Coney Barrett made up the majority.

Chief Justice John Roberts, another Republican-nominated justice, joined the court’s liberal wing in dissenting, though he did not sign on to the dissenting opinion authored by Justice Elena Kagan.

Kagan said she would have rejected the application for relief because she felt the state complied with the First Amendment in its limiting religious gatherings in homes to three households since the state had the same restrictions on secular gatherings in homes.

“It has adopted a blanket restriction on at-home gatherings of all kinds, religious and secular alike. California need not, as the per curiam insists, treat at-home religious gatherings the same as hardware stores and hair salons—and thus unlike at-home secular gatherings, the obvious comparator here,” she wrote.

The original order in the case denying the application for relief came from U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, who said that in light of “the unique risks of gatherings in spreading COVID-19; the deaths and serious illnesses that result from COVID-19; and the overwhelming strain on the healthcare system,” enjoining the state and county restrictions on in-home religious gatherings “would not be in the public interest.”

The Ninth Circuit’s panel upheld Koh’s ruling, writing last month that “appellants had not satisfied the requirements for the extraordinary remedy of an injunction pending appeal.”

“Specifically, the panel held that appellants had not demonstrated a likelihood of success on the merits for their free exercise, due process, or equal protection claims, nor had they demonstrated that injunctive relief was necessary for their free speech claims,” the panel wrote.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs and defense did not immediately respond to requests for comment. California had argued in a brief on Thursday that its policy regarding in-home gatherings applied to all gatherings, no matter their purpose, while also offering the Supreme Court did not need to intervene because the state will relax restrictions later this month.

I am seeing far too many Christians becoming for all practical purposes addicted to Facebook for their Christian lives. and what’s worse a new type of “Christian” is emerging on Facebook, ones that rank their own opinions devoid of Biblical justification, above what the Bible clearly says!

The latest rage seems to be personal “words from God” and those having priority over God’s written word, even when they clearly conflict with God’s written word, and in addition those “words from God” not being validated by other Christian’s!

There are scores of pseudo-teachers and “prophets” popping up on Facebook, and these people appeal to other’s “itching ears” for personal biases that they may have which are not validated by God’s written word!

One of these areas is in regards to Jews and Judaism, there is a growing element on Facebook from people claiming to be Christian labeling ALL Jews as “The Synagogue of Satan” and blaming them for all of the world’s ill’s. Some have went so far as dredging up the now discredited “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” believe it or not, to justify their views!

Anyone who has a correct understanding of God’s Word knows that the “The Synagogue of Satan” was never used in the Bible to describe all Jews! It was only ever used in God’s word within a context to describe a specific group of Jews at a specific time. It is not a description of all Jews at all times!

I have seen some many well meaning Christians who lack knowledge of God’s Word, on Facebook falling for the horrible ramblings of these pseudo-teachers.

Facebook and social media in general appeals to “self” it in no way helps a person in their Christian walk, it unfortunately makes them selfish, arrogant, and stubborn, refusing even gentle correction.

Facebook draws Christians away from relying on God’s word and in addition draws them away from learning how to “rightly divide” God’s word!

And now I refer back to the title of this post and the picture below. On the surface many un-knowledgeable and “blind” Christians may think it is “cute” but it betrays some very troubling inferences:

  1. That Jesus would wear a mask to prevent spreading the COVID virus
  2. That Jesus would wear a COVID mask to show compliance with the State
  3. That Jesus by wearing the mask was not divine, was not “God come in the Flesh” and therefore had to worry about possibly getting the virus!
  4. If Jesus had to wear a mask to protect himself or others from getting the COVID virus he was not divine and was really just a good human teacher!

For Christians” BEWARE of Facebook and Social Media, they are tools to condition people for “group think”, global Socialism, the Anti-Christ empire, and a False Messiah!

World Government Looming!

Far too many Christians are asleep, causing them to rationalize the COVID planscamdemic as real! I have been horrified at the number of churches that seem to be following right along with the Globalist agenda to force people into having a bio-metric “passport” to show that they have had the COVID “Vaccine” (which is actually not a Vaccine, but experimental Genetic Therapy, RESEARCH IT!) in order to participate in society!

Christians are being given very clear warnings to WAKE UP! Not to mention that most Christians could not make the decision to no take a “vaccine” that does absolutely NOTHING to protect them against a supposed COVID virus, because they are too far in debt and too dependent upon our atheist & globalist corporate run society to be locked out of it if they did not take the vaccine! Or even if they were able to shun society as we know it! They do not want to, they operate too much via “felt needs” and they have become enslaved to them!

Anyone awake out there?

from Rapture Ready:

People called globalists, the Global Elite, the Shadow Government, and various other names want to create and run a New World Order.

A New World Order implies the demise of the current world order.

The slogan of many globalists (including the Biden Administration, the UN, and Pope Francis) is “Build Back Better,” but to build back, the current world order must be destroyed first.

To Build Back Better implies a better world, but globalists are really trying to gain total control of everyone on earth (our religious system, our political system, our economic system; what we buy, what we sell, what we say, what we own, where we live, where we work, who we worship, and more).

In 2021, they will be seeking global approval to bring about their New World Order through the Davos Dialogues, the Great Reset, World Bank, IMF, G-7, and G-20 meetings.

Notice that all of these meetings are gatherings of elite globalists and not gatherings of people that have been elected by ordinary citizens.

At two meetings in 2019 (the UN and the World Economic Forum), Pres. Trump said, “The future does not belong to globalists. It belongs to patriots.”

Trump’s patriotism and nationalism are in direct opposition to the New World Order globalism.

I may be wrong, and if I am, I ask God to forgive me, but here is my opinion on some of the things that are happening:

  • The purpose of the election fraud (should I call it treason) is to remove Trump, bring down the current nationalist world order, and empower people to replace the current world order with the New World Order. It will take most of 2021 for “The Davos Dialogues” (Jan. 25-29), “The Great Reset” (May 18-21), the IMF, World Bank, and other meetings to be held, proposals to be adopted, dates set for new laws to go into effect, etc., but the inauguration of a president that intends to push this signifies that a world government is on the way.
  • The purpose of small business lockdowns is to impoverish owners and their employees to make them dependent upon government for a check so these people can be forced to obey the New World Order. If you do not think the U.S. government would do this to U.S. citizens, please explain why the first version of the recent stimulus bill proposed more money for pork projects (museums, Pakistan, Lebanon, Egypt, Burma, Sudan, etc.) than it proposed for unemployed citizens in the U.S. Please explain why it proposed nothing for restaurant owners, Gym owners and others in the U.S.

Why aren’t American taxpayers put first? (Trump signed the bill but sent it back to Congress with instructions to cut the amount of pork and increase the benefits to U.S. citizens. Also, know that the trillions that are being spent on bailouts are setting the stage for hyper-inflation and an economic collapse during the Tribulation Period.)

  • The purpose of Church lockdowns is to weaken the Church and silence most of the opposition to world government.
  • The purpose of the Coronavirus is to initiate a program that will eventually be used to number and track everyone on earth. It is currently being used to desensitize people to the Mark of the Beast. When that is enacted, people will not be allowed to live the way they want to live. People will be forced to live the way the elite tell them to live or they will be removed from the earth. (The Mark of the Beast is a minimum of 3 ½ years from now).
  • The purpose of Climate Change is wealth redistribution (Your wealth, not the elite’s wealth. You won’t own anything, but they will be very rich) and support for a world government that says natural disasters are a global problem that needs a global solution.
  • The purpose of enticing multi-millionaire athletes to kneel during the national anthem, enticing rioters to destroy statues, etc., is to convince citizens that the U.S. is a bad nation and capitalism must be replaced.
  • The censorship, lying and deception of most of the media is because many of the rich, elite owners are part of the shadow government or, at the very least, are catering to it.
  • The purpose of abortion, the gay agenda, euthanasia, etc., is to slow population growth in the world.
  • The opposition to a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border is because the globalists want a borderless world.
  • The globalist desire to divide Israel is because they ignore or don’t believe the Bible (a big mistake).
  • God put Trump in office as a roadblock because the time had not arrived, but at some point in time, God will permit the globalists to establish and control a wicked world government for 7 years.
  • Trump was spied on, falsely accused of colluding with the Russians, impeached by the House, ridiculed by the media for four years, and some of his friends were prosecuted, but nothing has been done to Hillary, Obama, Biden, Comey, Brennan, or any of the Democrats. The U.S. government has three divisions: Executive, Judicial, and Legislative – and under a Biden administration, all of them will be corrupt. Even if the Republicans control the Senate, there are enough corrupt Republicans for the corruption to continue unabated.

My opinions can be summed up this way: It looks like a world government is looming (The reason is sin and the abandonment of God in America).

Here are some recent reports on current events:

One, on Dec. 23, 2020, it was reported that a subcommittee of the Georgia Standing Senate Judiciary Committee issued a report that says the election was “chaotic and any reported results must be viewed as untrustworthy.”

They called for the Legislature to carefully consider its obligations under the U.S. Constitution, for the governor and the entire General Assembly to convene, and if the majority of the General Assembly agrees with the subcommittee’s findings, they should rescind the certification of the election.

According to the article, the General Assembly can do this when there is evidence of election fraud.

I have not seen a report on what they will do.

Two, it has been reported that Ron Raffensperger, the brother of Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, is employed by a Chinese government-owned company called Huawei Enterprise Storage Solutions.

Brad is an avid anti-Trumper, and some believe he has been heavily involved in Georgia’s apparent election fraud.

Three, The Trump Campaign has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to rule on several election fraud issues before Jan. 6, 2020, the day that Congress counts and certifies the electoral votes.

The court responded by setting the hearing for Jan. 22, 2021, two days after Biden is sworn in on Jan. 20, 2021.

On Jan. 22, 2021, the court is expected to say the hearing is not necessary because the election is over and Biden has already been sworn in.

This is one more indication that the U.S. Supreme Court is controlled by the Shadow Government and is no longer serving in the best interests of the U.S. citizens.

What is the purpose of having a U.S. Supreme Court when the results are determined before a case is heard by judges doing things like this?

What is the purpose of having elections if they are not honest?

Why vote if corrupt individuals are going to be allowed to determine who wins.

Four, on Oct. 2019, Joe Biden said if he is elected, “No one in my family will have an office in the White House, will sit in on meetings as if they are a cabinet member, will, in fact, have any business relationship with anyone that relates to a foreign corporation or a foreign country.”

On Dec. 24, 2020, Fox News reported that a company solely owned by Hunter Biden (called Skaneateles) owns a 10% stake in a Chinese equity firm called Bohai Harvest RST (BHR).

Two days before this, the Wall Street Journal reported that one of BHR’s financiers is the Bank of China.

According to the report, Hunter says he is trying to sell his interest in the Chinese company, and Joe’s transition team will not discuss it.

Many believe a special counsel needs to be appointed to investigate this matter.

Five, on Dec. 23, 2020, a judge in Arizona refused a request by the Arizona State Senate to examine the voter machines in Maricopa County.

He will let them refile their case, but it will probably be too late to do anything by then.

Six, readers have sent me reports that say the building that was destroyed in the Nashville Christmas day bombing housed a shadow government super-computer system and election voting machines that were scheduled to be audited this week.

A second report said a Christmas Day fire destroyed a printing company in Rochester, New York, that is believed to have printed hundreds of thousands of fraudulent election ballots.

I cannot confirm some of the information in the articles, but if they are true, two disasters with ties to the election on the same day in different states looks suspicious.

Seven, concerning the prophesied growth of Israel at the end of the age, on Dec. 27, 2020, it was reported that Israel believes a Biden administration will oppose settlement construction on the West Bank, so Israel plans to approve more settlements before Biden is inaugurated.

Eight, on Dec. 22, 2020, Israel’s unity government led by Netanyahu and Gantz collapsed.

By law, another election must occur 90 days later (Mar. 23, 2021).

This will be Israel’s fourth election in less than two years.

Ultimately, the Messiah must occupy the Throne of David in Jerusalem and rule over Israel as the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Nine, on Dec. 27, 2020, our Baptist Sunday School lesson was about a devout man named Simeon who was waiting for the day the Messiah would bring consolation (comfort) to Israel, and it was revealed to him that he would not die before he had seen the Messiah (Luke 2:25-26).

It occurred to me that Christians are waiting for the day the Messiah will bring consolation (comfort; the Rapture; I Thess. 4:13-18) to the Church, and it has been revealed that the generation that sees the return of Israel will not die before everything is fulfilled (Matt. 24:32-34).

Finally, God loves you, and if you have not done so, sincerely admit that you are a sinner; believe that Jesus is the virgin-born, sinless Son of God who died for the sins of the world, was buried, and raised from the dead; ask Him to forgive your sins, cleanse you, come into your heart and be your Saviour; then tell someone that you have done this.

How we know that the COVID “pandemic” is false and a conditioning exercise for a global anti-Christ led government is the focus on preventing Churches from being able to operate while at the same time allowing casino’s, liqueur stores and other “vice” establishments to operate. This is all part of the Globalist Agenda to do away with what it considers the “old traditions” in order to bring in “New traditions” that are aligned with globalism! And any group that governments feel would inhibit the spread of globalist ideology is hindered or shut down, while those establishments which either weaken or compromise peoples resistance are allowed to remain open!

from Harbingers Daily:

Police have placed roadblocks and fencing around GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta in an effort to prevent worshippers from accessing the building.

According to The Post Millennial, law enforcement officers descended upon the property early Wednesday morning.

The exact reason for the blockade is unknown at this time.

GraceLife made headlines earlier this year after the church’s pastor, James Coates was jailed for holding in-person worship services amid ongoing pandemic restrictions.

As CBN News has reported, after spending a month behind bars for violating the government’s capacity mandates, Coates was released from jail on March 29.

HD Editor’s Note:

The wife of Pastor Coates took to social media in response, saying, although they may have blocked off the area and chained the doors, the “Church isn’t a building” but instead “a blood-bought people”:

This is what happens when you have freedom of religion in a free and democratic society: they jail your pastor for freely opening the doors of the church and serving Christ’s sheep and hurting people. Now they’ve chained the doors of GraceLife Church enclosing in chain link fence. This is all under the guise of a health order. Too bad the Church isn’t a building, it’s a blood-bought people – Christ has and will prevail. We have an enemy and that enemy has been defeated by the death and resurrection of Christ. For all those who find satisfaction in this – you cannot stop the gospel. The name of Jesus Christ will go forth with even more power and conviction. The Word of God will sound out across this nation accomplishing all the work God has ordained to glorify Himself. I pray for all the pastors and Christians that still think this is about a virus and health order. Clearly, our Charter and criminal code mean nothing as long as the government can come up with a good enough story to disregard it. God have mercy on our nation. I pray for their souls. They are clearly under Your judgment.

He Is Risen!

Revelation 13:15-17:

“He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.  He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

from The Medium:

As we bear witness to the Digital Transformation of our world and cross the threshold into the Web 3.0 era, we face some extraordinary choices with serious and wide-ranging implications. Our technologies, from the first use of fire to the future of facial recognition, appear to be neutral by their very nature. Their appearance obscures their innate potential to magnify both the best and worst of human desires. Like the tale of Prometheus who stole fire from the gods to give to humankind to warm our homes and illuminate our civilizations, we must always remember that the gift of fire used to cook our food can just as easily become a curse that burns down our home.

The 21st-century technologies introduced in this book also contain the power to burn both ways, albeit at a previously unimaginable level of power and scale. And it is precisely for this reason that we as a species must carefully consider their use because the choices we make will fundamentally impact the lives of billions and set the stage for decades, perhaps centuries, to come. Our choices will not only determine the territorial lines of the web and the world, but also our very definition of the words humanity, civilization, and even reality itself. We must choose wisely.

The emergence of smart cities and factories, autonomous cars and homes, smart appliances and virtual reality worlds, automated shopping, and digitized personal medicine are transforming the way we live, play, work, travel, and shop. All across the planet, our technologies are breaking out from behind the screen and into the physical world around us. Simultaneously, the people, places, and things in our world are being digitized and brought into the virtual world, becoming part of the digital domain. We are digitizing the physical and “physicalizing” the digital. Clear boundaries between the real and the virtual are dissolving. Our near-term future has all of the indicators that the technologies that we’ve seen in our science fiction stories over the last century will be realized. Looking back a century from today, will we consider our sci-fi stories prophetic tragedies that we ignored or cautionary tales that we heeded?

Across the many “Top Technologies for 2020” lists compiled by the leading research firms around the world, a recurring pattern emerges. The investments and acquisitions that the largest tech companies have made over the last decade in Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Internet of Things including smart cars, drones, robotics, and biometric wearables as well as Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, 5G Networks, 3D printing, Synthetic Biology, Edge, Mesh, Fog Computing, are being woven into the fabric of our global civilization, under our feet, above our heads, and all around us.

These technologies, all coming of age in the 21st century are often referred to as “exponential” — true to Moore’s Law, about every 18 months their capabilities and performance powers double for the same cost. This is a common effect of computing technologies, known as “Moore’s Law” for the co-founder of Intel, Gordon Moore.

Moore’s Law is about compute power. And it is an often-quoted law of computing.

Robert Metcalfe was the founder of 3Com and one of the inventors of Ethernet. Metcalfe’s Law states that the total value of a network is determined by the number of other users connected to the network. The more users that an individual user can reach through a network, the more valuable the network becomes, even when the features and price of a service remain the same. Metcalfe’s Law is about network scale.

Although not every user or node is actually of equal value in any network, according to a recent study by the NfX Group titled “70 Percent of Value in Tech is Driven by Network Effects,” over the last 25 years, approximately 70% of the value created in the Technology sector has been the result of companies that use these “network effects” to grow.

Arguably, the key reason we have seen Web 2.0 tech companies and start-ups become the largest companies in the world in terms of market cap, profit margins, and number of users is because they are the best examples of Moore’s Law supply-side cost reductions in computing power complemented by the demand-side economies of network scale and value, as defined by Metcalfe’s Law.

As an example, an upgraded smartphone on a faster network enables more engagement, content consumption, and sharing, which drives other users to participate. This has been the winning formula in the Web 2.0 era, which has driven adoption from 1 billion Internet users in 2005 to nearly 4 billion in 2019. 3.9 billion people use mobile phones to access the Web, and 2.5 billion of those use smartphones. 3.4 billion are on social networks, 3.2 billion of whom use their mobile phones to access social networks. See the trend? Better hardware, faster networks, more users. Exponential compute power + Exponential network connections = Exponential Value

Just as computing power has increased even as the cost and size have shrunk from room-scale to desktop to laptop to handheld, our computer networks have grown from room-size, to company-wide, to country-wide, to worldwide networks.

Simply put, Moore’s Law makes computing faster and cheaper while Metcalfe’s Law grows the size and value of a network.

It will soon become technologically and economically worthwhile to computerize complex things like cars, cities, and humans, but ultimately, we will computerize increasingly smaller things like jewelry, clothing, buttons, and even our very cells.

And because value is best accumulated by combining many networks into a single network as the existing Internet has done, this new network of people, places, and things, rules, and value creates the Internet of Everything in the Web 3.0 era because it grants the ability to computerize and connect everything.

This is the great “Convergence” of all computing technologies and all networks. The implications of this Convergence are unprecedented in power, scope, and scale. Fundamentally one must ask: What happens when we integrate the physical, digital, and biological domains together?

Will this Convergence lead us into the futuristic dystopia of our nightmares — the one where we are jacked into a simulated reality, a siloed and centralized network where we are constantly under surveillance by dark forces operating in the shadows, all the while being mined for our data like a natural resource? In Web 3.0, will we move from the Social Web to the Shadow Web?

If the past is an indicator of the future, then this is a real possibility. However, it is one that we should avoid at all costs. And we can, because the Convergence does, thankfully, grant us the opportunity to use these same technologies for amazing good: to address and even resolve some of civilization’s biggest challenges; to turn us from a dark and increasingly bleak forecast towards a brighter and better future. Such a future could positively transform every aspect of our lives — how we work, learn, play, celebrate, and enjoy life. It could grant us the means for generating a prosperous global economy, thriving planetary ecology, and a healthy, advanced civilization. Facilitated by new network protocols, the Convergence could lead to the creation of a new web that connects physical places together with virtual places. It could enable an open and interoperable new generation of the web — a Web 3.0 era that secures the privacy and property rights of individuals while ensuring secure and trustworthy interactions and transactions between the human, machine, and virtual economies. This future literally adds a new dimension to the web. It enables — The Spatial Web.

The Spatial Web weaves together all of the digital and physical strands of our future world into the fabric of a new universe where next-gen computing technologies generate a unified reality; where our digital and physical lives become one. This is a new kind of network, not merely one of interconnected computers like the original Internet or a network of interlinked pages, text, and media like the World Wide Web but rather a “living network” made up of the interconnections between people, places, and things, their virtual counterparts, and the interactions, transactions and transportation between them. Like the World Wide Web before it, this new Spatial Web requires new code to bring it to life. Not merely software code, but critically, ethical, and social codes as well.

Today, we can’t share knowledge all that effectively because we cannot share our mental models and maps of the world directly between brains. We can’t copy/paste ideas and concepts between ourselves, much less create, edit, or share them with AI, or IoT devices.

But what if we had the technology to collaborate with machines and artificial intelligence to share collective 3D models and maps of our experience and knowledge directly? Instead of being locked in our Private VR we could share in a kind of multi-dimensional Public AR — a digitally-mediated consensus reality — an idea as exciting as it is concerning. However, using Distributed Ledger technologies like Blockchain could enable us to reliably verify factual data about the world while enabling the freedom to collaboratively explore, edit, mashup, and remix reality. These technologies could help us confirm the difference between the real and the “projected,” between the empirically valid and the creatively expressed, providing us an Augmented Intelligent Reality.

The power of the Spatial Web initially comes from its ability to describe the world in the language that the world speaks to us in — geometry. The Spatial Web lets us use a digitally-mediated universal language in which all information can become spatial. It enables the current information on the web to be placed spatially and contextually on objects and at locations, where we can interact with information in the most natural and intuitive ways, by merely looking, speaking, gesturing, or even thinking. But it also enables the digital to be more physical as sensors and robotics become embedded into our environments and onto the objects around us. It makes our world smarter as it adds intelligence and context to any place, any object, and every person that we encounter, and it allows our relationships with each other and this new network to be more trustworthy, more secure, and faster by decentralizing and distributing the computing and storage of the data. It will enable us to accelerate and improve, augment and enhance every facet of our existence — our education, our creativity, our health, our businesses, our legal system, our politics, and our ecologies. The Spatial Web has the potential to move us from predominantly egocentric and ethnocentric concerns to more worldcentric ones that are more holistic, equitable, and inclusive.

Despite the promise of a new Spatial Web, today we are still using web technologies invented decades ago that have significant limitations with regard to their use in the physical world. Today’s web protocols were designed for interconnecting pages on computers, not people, places, and things in the real world. These protocols were designed for sharing information, not for managing and coordinating the activities of humans, machines and AI or engaging in real-time global trade and commerce.

Web 1.0 consisted of static documents and read-only data on PCs. Web 2.0 introduced user-generated multimedia content, interactive web applications, and social media on multi-touch smartphones. Web 3.0 marks the rise of AR and VR headsets, smart glasses, wearables, and sensors. These will enable the Spatial Web to project our information, ideas, and imaginations into the world around us, weave them into every conversation, displaying them in our cities, in the places we work, learn and live. With intuitively placed information, AI-assisted interaction, cryptographically secure information, and digital payments, a new kind of network is emerging. One where the Web becomes the World.

In Web 3.0, we will not only create a “Digital Twin” or soft copy of our world and everything in it, but a Smart Twin of everything, with its own unique ID, interaction rules, and verifiable history capable of being linked and synced to its physical counterpart, spatially. Like a Wikipedia for anything, making all the world searchable, allowing for any object, person, process, and system to be updated, quantified, optimized and shared — if you have the right permissions to do so. The applications are endless and the implications, both positive and negative — practically indescribable. However, it is important that we begin to describe them; and accurately, at that, if we are to benefit from its promise and avoid its pitfalls, we must first name the thing correctly.

Plenty of Augmented Reality or AR-centric names for a Digital Twin of the physical world have been put forth by various industry leaders. Augmented World Expo’s founder Ori Inbar has suggested the term AR Cloud, a digital point cloud or mesh-like scaffolding of environments that allow us to project holograms into the world in ways that can be persistent and therefore experienced by multiple parties. Magic Leap has put forth the term Magicverse, a more playful version of a global digital twin that inspires visions of the fantastical. And in early 2019, acclaimed futurist Kevin Kelly of Wired magazine fame wrote an entire feature entitled Mirrorworld which attempted to consider a broader description that mentions IoT and other technologies in the Convergence but lacked a description of how these technologies would work together. Regardless of your preferred term, they are each meaningful attempts at the near impossible — describing an inevitable future world where the digital and the physical blend together, where the “world will be painted with data” as notable Forbes writer and industry XR veteran Charlie Fink is fond of saying.

What each of these terms lack is a clear vision for AR in the glaring light of the Convergence. How will this Digital Twin of the world combine with IoT, AI, and Blockchain to become a Smart Twin? How will AR work across various devices, operating systems, and locations? How will it work with other realities like Virtual Reality, the slower (projected adoption curve) but arguably larger cousin of AR? VR will play out its own exponential role — a 3D Virtual Reality internet of all connected VR spaces, games, and worlds classically referred to as the “Metaverse” in Neil Stephenson’s seminal sci-fi novel Snow Crash and more recently described in Ernest Cline’s book Ready Player One as “The Oasis.” Whether we use these terms, the “Internet of Non-Things” or simply call it the “VR Cloud,” we cannot casually omit it from the Convergence, banish it to its own corner of the Spatial Computing universe apart from AR. This is why a more comprehensive term is required, one that encapsulates all of the technologies of the Web 3.0 era and even provides the ability for users and digital objects to move seamlessly between AR and VR spaces.

Given the historical importance and exponential power ascribed to Convergence technologies, a comprehensive vision is required that describes how these technologies will be best aligned with our core human values and what the implications will be if they are not. Piecemeal descriptions and industry-centric narratives do not provide the holistic vantage point from which we must consider how best to make the critically important decisions regarding matters of privacy, security, interoperability, and trust in an age where powerful computing will literally surround us.

If we fail to make the right societal decisions now, as we are laying the digital infrastructure for the 21st century, a dystopic “Black Mirror” version of our future could become our everyday reality. A technological “lock-in” could occur, where dysfunctional and/or proprietary technologies become permanently embedded into the infrastructure of our global systems leaving us powerless to alter the course of their direction or ferocity of their speed. A Web 3.0 that continues its march toward centralized power and siloed platforms would not only have crippling effects on innovation, it would have chilling effects on our freedom of speech, freedom of thought, and basic human rights. This should be enough to compel us to take thoughtful but aggressive action to prevent such a lock-in from occurring at all costs.

Thankfully, there is also a “white mirror” version of Web 3.0, a positive future not well described in our sci-fi stories. It’s the one where we intentionally and consciously harness the power of the Convergence and align it with our collective goals, values, and greatest ambitions as a species. In the “white mirror” version, we have the opportunity to use these technologies to assist us in working together more effectively to improve our ecologies, economies, and governance models, and leave the world better than the one we entered.

In the first quarter of 2019, an historically unprecedented but little-noticed event took place. The screens of over 1 billion new smartphones became windows into the physical world because both Apple and Android added AR software to their operating systems. This gave smartphones the capability to display 3D contextual information and 3D interactive objects in space. Apple, Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Facebook, Magic Leap, Baidu, Tencent, and others have also invested billions of dollars into a new generation of smart glasses and headsets for Augmented and Virtual Reality designed to initially supplement and ultimately replace our smartphones. In addition, billions of cameras and 3D depth sensors soon to be added to our existing smartphones and to the billions of drones, robots, cars, and street corners, will make them all spatially aware, capable of mapping their environments in 3D and acting as windows to the Spatial Web. These digital devices will enable us to make a complete copy or Digital Twin of the world we live in. Over the next decade, as we complete this transition, spatial technologies will become the leading interface, not only for our various digital activities but for our physical ones as well.

The Spatial Web book lays out the need for a Spatial Web and describe how the technologies of the Convergence will be connected by new software protocols will bring it into existence. They further outline the applications and implications for us as individuals and as a society. Our intention, as authors, is for this book to serve as a primer to acquaint you with each of these powerful technologies, and to lay out a vision for a path forward that inspires and invites you, the reader, to participate in the development of a more open and free new web… a new web that stands on the shoulders of those who built the earliest Internet and web infrastructure, but looks to our future, to lay down a new universal digital infrastructure that is designed to better align the power of our technologies with our human values.

The Spatial Web Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to free and open standards across emerging technologies. Our organization, with input from an extraordinary group of pioneering thinkers, has architected a theoretical and technological framework for a universal digital infrastructure for the 21st century. To bring this vision of Web 3.0 to life will take us all to advocate, develop, iterate, and realize it.

Welcome to The Spatial Web.

I want to caution that this article is not from a Christian website, in fact it is from a website that has some pretty far out ideas on some things, however on some topics such as this, the author of the website is spot on.

What I find troubling these days is that fewer and fewer churches or so called Christian Leaders see “the writing on the wall” so to speak. God is giving so many obvious signs that we are nearing the end of the age but unfortunately most of what is considered the “church” has fallen asleep or gone headlong into apostasy and are therefore blind to what is happening!

From The Giza Death Star:

Today’s blog is a departure from normal in that it’s about two articles shared by two different people.  That’s a departure in and of itself from my normal routine here, but there’s more of a reason that I’m doing so. The two people who shared the respective articles – N.S. and K.M. – I know do not know each other nor even live in the same area. While the articles seem, on the surface, to be about different things entirely, they are about the same thing, as we shall see. Moreover, oddly, they arrived in my inbox within minutes of each other.  “Something was in the aether,” and that’s why I decided to blog about these two articles, because they’re symbolic of an effort to make betrayal seem O.K., and the articles, arriving how and when they did, seem to be screaming out “we belong together.”   Here’s the first story, shared by N.S.:

Pope’s Visit to Iraqi Ziggurat to Bring Together Several Faiths – and Hopefully Lure More Visitors

When I first saw the headline of this article, with a picture of the ziggurat at Ur in Iraq, I was not amused. I must confess, the idea of any bishop, much less the bishop of Rome, standing at, or atop, an ancient ziggurat leading one of those awful “something for everyone” ecumenical “prayerfests” is disconcerting to say the least. It’s one of those cases of “scrambling the symbols” that is so much a hallmark of the age, as every institution seems to be in some sort of mad rush to abandon its traditions. One wonders if the “prayerfest” will include prayers to or invocations of Merodach (Marduk)? One wonders what self-respecting rabbi or imam will make the climb up the ziggurat? I suspect that if any do, they “won’t be from the area,” but from the West where “Supreme Being-ism” and “God-in-General-ism” has become such a cacophony of metaphysical mishmash devoid of any connection to any tradition. And… it’s not the first time that a post-Vatican II pope has participated in these “interfaith prayerfests”; John-Paul II did, Benedict XVI did. The only one who didn’t (as far as I’m aware) was John-Paul I, who was too busy during his short pontificate trying to “clean out the swamp” that he didn’t have the time… and we know what happened to him.

Ahhh… but one needn’t be so exercised. According to the article – which let it be noted is from The US News and World Report – the real explanation is a typically shallow American one; the Pope is simply there to promote tourism:

Pope Francis is due to hold an inter-religious prayer service at the ancient Mesopotamian site of Ur when he visits Iraq next week – an event local archeologists hope will draw renewed attention to the place revered as the birthplace of Abraham.

Popular with Western visitors in the 1970s and 1980s, Ur is scarcely visited today after decades of war and political instability shattered Iraq’s international tourism industry. The coronavirus crisis now also keeps local tourists away.

The father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, Abraham is described in the biblical book of Genesis as living in the city before God called upon him to create a new nation in a land he later learned was Canaan.

All of which brings me to the second article, shared by K.M.:

Vatican Papal Academy Sells Out the Virgin Mary for Muhammad

Here the explanation for the “scrambling of symbols” represented by the Pope’s pending visit is about much more than promoting tourism; it’s about scrambling the fundamental tenets of the “Abrahamic religions”:

The same folks to bring you “Abrahamism”—the idea that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are intricately connected—have narrowed their sights on promoting Mary, the mother of Christ, as “a Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman,” in the words of Catholic priest Fr. Gian Matteo of the Pontifical International Marian Academy.  In a ten-week webinar series titled “Mary, a model for faith and life for Christianity and Islam,” the academy will seek to present Mary as a bridge between the two religions.

This is easier said than done — at least for those still interested in facts.  For starters, the claim that Mary was a “Jewish, Christian and Muslim woman” is only two-thirds true: yes, she was a Jew by race and background, and yes, she was a Christian in that she literally birthed Christ(ianity), but she was most certainly not a Muslim — a term and religion that came into being 600 years after Mary died.

Worse, far from being the Eternal Virgin, as she is for 1.5 billion Christians of the Catholic and Orthodox variety, Islam presents Mary, the Mother of Christ, as “married” to and “copulating” with Muhammad in paradise — a depiction that would seem to sever rather than build “bridges.”

For Christians “of the Catholic and Orthodox variety,” Mary is “the Eternal Virgin” precisely as a consequence of their faith that she bore God the Son in his human nature, and thus, was the literal “Ark of God” whom not even her betrothed, St. Joseph, would touch in any carnal way, having before him all those Old Testament examples of what happened to people who touched the Old Testament ark. Islam, as the article goes on to point out, does not. That said, one wonders what any of them have in common with the religion of Ur, other than Abraham.

It’s that, I suspect, that is the root of the problem that’s coming home to roost. There is a movement afoot – a quiet one almost entirely off the radar – to create an amalgamation of those religions, a movement documented by Jeff Sharlet in two books titled C Street and The Family, where an effort to create “Chrislam” – a strange amalgam of American fundamentalist Christianity and Islam – is surveyed. What the second article suggests is that this movement is not just a strange one-off conjured in the Lying Circus in Swampington D.C., but that similar thinking and agendas are underway in Rome. And for those in the know, that effort is but an extension of the technique outlined in the 1960s and 197os ecumenical movement document called The Consultation on Church Union, where the technique was simply to expropriate the ecclesiastical traditions of each other: make the Anglicans look more Roman Catholic, the Roman Catholics look more Zwinglian and Lutheran, make the Lutherans use Eastern Orthodox litanies, and so on, the goal  being to make everyone look the same so that the subliminal suggestion is that they are the same, reducing doctrinal – which is to say, conceptual – disputes to mere words.  It’s the ecclesiastical version of what we see in the current politically correct “woke” culture when it talks about “cultural appropriation”, which is “bad” in culture, but “ok” when it comes to religions. It’s a way of putting everyone “on the square,” and pretending that all that matters is “Supreme Being-ism” and that those differences and symbols and traditions are neither important nor real. It’s the false brotherhood of process itself, not shared cosmologies and philosophies.

Or to put that last point country simple, expect more of it, because the process has no end because it’s the process itself that empowers them.  They are trying to unmake all histories and traditions, and with it, all history.

See you on the flip side…
