CAN WE TRUST BIBLE
The answer is an
absolute, unequivocal "YES".
For one thing, God
cannot lie. If
He said it, it's so sure you can stake your life on it.
For another thing, over 80% of Bible prophecy has
already been fulfilled in
For instance, God predicted thru
the prophet Jeremiah that Jews would be taken captive
into Babylon, and return to Jerusalem in 70 years. It
Daniel predicted that Babylon would be
toppled by the Persians. They
he also predicted the Persians would be defeated by the
Greeks. Right again.
Jesus predicted that the
second temple would be destroyed, so that "one stone
would not be left upon another". He also said it would
happen within a generation, which is around 40 years.
His prophecy was
fulfilled in exact detail in 70 A.D., some forty years
after He uttered it.
We have EVERY REASON, therefore, to expect the
remaining 20% to be fulfilled just as precisely.
2 Peter 1:19 calls it "a MORE
MORE SURE than what?
context, Peter is saying that it's MORE SURE THAN
THE AUDIBLE VOICE OF GOD WHICH
HE, ALONG WITH JAMES AND JOHN HEARD AT THE MOUNT OF
TRANSFIGURATION [Matthew 17:1-6].
How is this
relevant to us?
If the remaining 20% of Bible
prophecy is about to be fulfilled, we should be made
aware of it.
According to Luke 21:24-32 we
are living in that generation which will see Jesus, the
Alpha, manifested as the Omega.
The end of the age
is upon us.
Those who place their trust in Jesus will be safely
ushered into His Kingdom.

definition, is a

Most cults DENY the existence of hell, and of

Most cults ADD either

BOOK OF DANIEL
In the Book of
Revelation, chapters 4 through to 19, the apostle John
is treated to a heavenly tour and a panoramic view of
In chapter 4 he describes God as
looking like "jasper and carnelian" (I'm quite familiar
with both these stones and, keeping in mind that God is
Spirit, still wonder about such description), he
describes the Throne, the cherubim around it, the
rainbow, the sea of emerald in front, and the 24
In chapter 5, however, he focuses on what
God holds in His Right Hand.
God's Right Hand that Jesus,
in His glorified human form, is
110:1; Hebrews 1:3).
WHAT could be SO IMPORTANT
that God would hold it in
His Right Hand?
Could it be the Book of Genesis, which started
the whole earth experience?
Or, perhaps, one of
Or the Psalms, where God is so
Surely, ONE of the Gospels, which
tell of Jesus' Most Perfect Work of Redemption?
NO -- and I was just as amazed about it as you probably
are -- IT'S THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
The Father holds
in His Right Hand A
SINGLE SCROLL sealed with SEVEN seals.
The ONLY Book in the
entire Bible that
was sealed BY JESUS HIMSELF is the Book of Daniel
(Daniel 12:4, 9).
Thus, as we see in Revelation
chapter 5, after scouring all of heaven and earth, and
even UNDER the earth, for a "worthy" candidate, ONLY
JESUS is found worthy to remove the seals thereof and
OPEN this Book.
He is the One who sealed it, and He's
the ONLY One who can open it. Praise Him forevermore.
Indeed, by Revelation chapter 10, this
theretofore sealed Book has been opened, all 7 seals
have been lifted, and Jesus
is still holding it in His Hand.
He then FEEDS
IT to John telling
him to "eat it up".
The ENTIRE Book of
Revelation, which is THE
Revelation OF Jesus
Christ (Revelation 1:1), is simply the
UNSEALING OF the Book of Daniel.
It's only AFTER Jesus unseals this Book that
the 7 trumpets, three woes and 7 vials are disclosed
It's the Book of Daniel that
INTRODUCED the concept of the Kingdom of God (Daniel
2:21; 4:17, 25, 32; 5:21) which John the Baptist, Jesus
and the disciples repeatedly preached about.
It's after Daniel's Book is UNSEALED, and its unsealing
disclosed to us in Revelation, that the Kingdom of God
manifests here on earth (Revelation 20:1-4).
We're living THE FINAL MOMENTS OF the 5th Seal.
The 6th Seal is the Rapture and the sealing of the

TOMB OF ALEXANDER
About 4 months
ago, we received a slew of emails telling us the tomb
of Alexander the Great had been discovered.
They provided various links to regional news services
who were reporting the claim.
Closer to home,
Huffington Post ran a story about the alleged
I wrote about it on 11/11/11.
At the time, I advised caution lest it turned out to be
a hoax like the alleged finding of Noah's Ark and SO
A LOT has happened since then.
I've gotten A LOT of fresh revelation.
Holy Spirit has relentlessly gotten on my case about
it. I've also done more digging and meditating on it,
and I'm prepared to go out on a limb:
whole thing is JUST TOO WEIRD for it NOT to
Alexander was Greek:
WHAT ON EARTH would he be doing with the
VERY JEWISH Ark
of the Covenant?
It's true that Alexander
visited the Second Temple -- which Jesus also visited
some 300 years later -- but when he did, the temple
CONTAINED NO ARK.
It's true that he showed
uncharacteristic kindness to Jews at that time, but NOWHERE
are we told by
Josephus -- who wrote about his interactions with the
Jews -- or any other reputable historian who documented
Alexander's life and campaigns like Arrian, Curtius,
Callisthenes or Plutarch, THAT HE KNEW in
332 B.C. WHERE THE ARK WAS, LET ALONE THAT HE HAD TAKEN THE
Finding the elusive tomb of Alexander ALONE
would be considered A TREMENDOUS archeological feat.
Those who reportedly located his tomb would have
been more than thrilled to lay claim to JUST FINDING
If they merely wanted to embellish,
they could have claimed they found gold, jewels, his
crown, shield, sword, armor, scepter, seal, or other
important Greek artifacts.
So WHY even
If the story were UNTRUE, why
would the people involved associate Alexander with --
OF ALL THINGS -- the Ark?
They HAVEN'T read my book Seed
They have NO CLUE that Alex is the Antichrist.
It makes NO SENSE WHATSOEVER for them to connect
Alex with the Jewish Ark UNLESS the story was true.
2. The MEANING of the alleged find is mind-boggling
from a biblical standpoint because the
Ark was considered God's Throne on earth, His Mercy
We know that Antichrist (Alexander) will
pass himself off as "God" during
the upcoming tribulation.
Since he will make
such claim, it would make PERFECT SENSE for him to SIT
where God sits, and where God's glory would appear.
3. The BIBLE'S OWN
2 Thessalonians 2:4 tells us so that "he, AS
God, SITS in
the temple of God, showing
himself that he is God".
I'd never thought about this before but, in order
he must have A
SEAT or Throne.
he's going to make a credible case for himself as
THRONE WOULD HE PRETEND TO SIT ON BUT God's?
Jesus warned that the Antichrist would show
"great signs" so
that if it were possible he would DECEIVE THE
VERY CHOSEN ONES (the Jews) (Matthew
Jews haven't seen the Ark, or known its
exact whereabouts, since around 605 B.C. That's over
When the third temple is built,
with no ark, IT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE for the Antichrist
to show up with a fake ark, which
LOOKS exactly like the real one, and
say something like: "now that you've built a temple for
me (God) I will demonstrate my Deity by restoring your
This may also explain, in part, how
he conquers Jerusalem and according to Daniel 12:7 not
merely defeats but CRUSHES (SHATTERS) Israel's military
If you were a soldier in Israel's army would you
FIGHT AGAINST someone who claims to be your Messiah and

back" to the temple in Jerusalem?
troops being demoralized!
It would also serve to
refute the testimony of the Two Witnesses, who will
doubtlessly prophesy against him before and during most
of his reign.
The Ark would
also serve to convince the Islamic world of
Alex's "Deity" since Quran 2:248 says "A
Sign of his (Allah's) authority is that there shall
come to you the Ark of the Covenant, with (an
assurance) therein of security (Sakina) from
In this is a symbol for you if ye indeed have faith"
This, coupled with the statement
Alexander, the Two Horned One), "Verily WE ESTABLISHED
HIS POWER ON EARTH, and We gave him THE WAYS AND THE
MEANS TO ALL ENDS" (Koran 18:84) would be pretty hard
for any Muslim
to argue with.
5. THE TIMING:
Can it be
"MERE COINCIDENCE" that such reports appear AT THIS

Aegean Sea, when he wrote the Revelation.

beast (Antichrist) RISE UP OUT OF THE SEA.
Thasos, where the alleged tomb was found, is

couple hundred miles from Patmos, and just off the
northeastern coast of ancient Macedon, where Alexander

(Ezekiel 28:8), reappear on earth and would probably
lead people to his very own, just offshore, "empty
tomb" as additional proof of his resurrection.
The question remains: HOW did he get hold of the Ark?
The real Ark was hidden beneath Mount Moriah by
the prophet Jeremiah.
If, indeed, there is an
"ark of the covenant" in his tomb, it would be A FAKE
HOW would Alexander know what the Ark looked
like, when HE NEVER SAW IT?
He didn't see it, but
his father Satan SURE DID.
Satan used to be the cherubim that COVERED God's
Throne or Mercy Seat (Ark) in heaven BEFORE he rebelled
and fell into sin (Ezekiel 28:14).
KNOW EXACTLY what
the real Ark -- even the ONE IN HEAVEN -- looks
He has always COVETED the Throne (Ark) of God
In that regard, the apostle John
says "and the dragon (Satan) gave him (Alexander) his
power, and HIS THRONE (SEAT), and great authority"
While it would be exciting if
a team of professional archeologists went in there and
verified the finding, we
rely on an INFINITELY HIGHER AUTHORITY to determine
what is true or not.
Such excavation is unlikely to happen before
Christians leave the earth, but it seems the rumors are
merely setting the stage for Alex's reappearing.
Jesus will appear first IN THE CLOUDS, and a bit
later Alex will reappear ON

PETER THE ROMAN
Many of you are
familiar with Saint Malachi's prophecy about the Popes,
which is discussed below this message.
NOT base our teachings on
Malachi's prophecy but STRICTLY
Word of God.
However, Malachi has an impressive
record of ACCURATELY depicting each Pope.
of which, his prophecy seems to be IN PERFECT SYNC WITH
the Book of Revelation.
Personally, I believe
him to be a true prophet who DID receive divine
revelation. If you disagree, that's fine.
obvious reasons, the most intriguing and exciting are
THE LAST TWO descriptions.
The present Pope,
Benedict XVI, is called the "glory of the olive", a
title that is rife with prophetic significance.
After Pope Benedict, the prophecy ends with the
"In the EXTREME PERSECUTION
of the Holy Roman Church, there will sit (i.e., as
who will feed his sheep IN MANY TRIBULATIONS: and when
these things are finished, THE CITY OF SEVEN HILLS
(Rome) WILL BE DESTROYED, and the tremendous judge will
judge his people, The End."
Sounds A LOT like
Revelation chapters 17 and 18.
Benedict, according to Malachi, will either die, be
killed or be raptured (let's hope it's the latter) and
will be succeeded by this Peter.
"Peter the Roman" has stirred A LOT of controversy.
The apostle Peter is considered by Roman Catholics
to be THE FIRST Pope.
There's never been
Peter II. No
Pope in the Church's long and convoluted history has
EVER taken the name Peter.
There have been
Leos, Juliuses, Innocents, Urbans, Clements, Piouses,
Gregorys, Alexanders (just to name a few), Johns, Pauls
and even John Pauls, BUT NO
However, that's A TOTAL MISCONCEPTION.
NOWHERE does Malachi
say that this man WILL CHOOSE Peter as his pontifical
In fact, Malachi doesn't give THE ACTUAL ADOPTED
NAMES of ANY of the 267 Popes; he
merely provides some
So WHY WOULD IT BE ANY DIFFERENT with the Catholic
Church's last leader?
The designation "Peter
the Roman" should
be understood to be DESCRIPTIVE just
like "of the half moon" was descriptive of John Paul I,
or "shepherd and sailor" of Pope John XXIII.
Malachi does NOT even say that this Peter will be
ELECTED Pope. He could, therefore, be someone who
of the Roman Catholic Church after the present Pope's
demise or disappearance.
Indeed, if the
tribulation's underway and remaining Catholics are
being persecuted, it's hard to envision cardinals
having their customary conclave to elect a new Pope.
Be that as it may, and since we're living at the
time of the end, who
might this Peter be?
If Malachi is correct, Petrus
Romanus must be around somewhere.
Two possible candidates have been offered for
the role of "Peter the Roman".
official with the Vatican's Roman Curia and Holy See's
nuncio (representative) to Venezuela, and Tarcisio
a cardinal and diplomat who currently serves as
cardinal Secretary of State for the Vatican and one of
the few individuals privy to the Third Secret of Fatima
(see respective pictures below).
So, we have two
Pietros or "Peters" who could, potentially, fulfill
Malachi's final pronouncement.
That still leaves
the description "the Roman" which must have some
pertinent application to THE RIGHT candidate.
It's hard to imagine anyone thinking of Parolin as "the
Roman" other than the fact he's a member of the Roman
Curia, but so are hundreds of others.
from Rome, but was born in the town of Schiavon, in the
region of Vicenza in northeastern Italy.
Tarcisio Pietro Bertone, on the other hand, comes from
the town of Romano Canavese,
in the province of Turin (where the Shroud of Turin is
kept), in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy.
So, the designation "Peter the Roman", seems
particularly apropos to him.
Additionally, Cardinals outrank Monsignors.
In the death or absence of the present Pope,
Bertone would doubtlessly be on the short list for
possible "new Pope".
And if the College of
Cardinals, because of tribulation, persecution, or some
other reason, is not able to carry out its duties and
elect a successor, it would make perfect sense for the
CURRENT Secretary of State to take over the leadership
in an unofficial capacity.
Of the two

Israel AHEAD OF Bibi's trip to Washington.
shortly thereafter there was the announcement that Israel
would NOT, repeat, NOT notify the U.S. in advance if

two leaders put up a friendly and cooperative front,
it's no secret that Mr. Obama and Mr. Netanyahu don't

defend itself BY ITSELF.

mistake that people make in reaching Catholics for

handful of Catholic priests participate in once or
twice a year, and that Catholic congregations KNOW
NOTHING ABOUT, than in SAVING CATHOLIC SOULS.

Catholicism "A CULT", or branding them "IDOLATERS" than
in bringing them to Jesus.
Evangelical approach PUTS
THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE:
want Catholics to
RID OF THEIR
STATUES BEFORE they
come to Jesus.
They usually BEGIN BY ACCUSING Catholics
of being in a false religion, worshipping saints,
practicing idolatry, etc. Or by telling them "TO GET
RID OF" whatever religious paraphernalia "if they want
to be saved".
It's ONLY NATURAL that Catholics
become DEFENSIVE and won't budge.
in bringing MANY Catholics to the Lord has been that if
we approach them AS FELLOW BELIEVERS...
When we say something like "I know you believe
in Jesus and love Jesus. Would
you like to INVITE HIM into your heart and EXPERIENCE
HIS PRESENCE? It's
the greatest, most wonderful experience this side of
heaven"... (Then lead them in a simple prayer to
receive Jesus into their hearts).

Some Evangelicals would rather engage in the STUPID
and UNCHRISTIAN practice of blaming
MODERN Catholics for
what some of their ancestors did 10
or 12 CENTURIES AGO.
To be sure, there ARE some VERY

in Catholic history.
Who can forget the
HORRENDOUS HERESY and DECEPTION -- with eternal
consequences -- of selling "indulgences", AS
IF Salvation (Jesus) COULD BE BOUGHT?
Or the scourge of the Crusades where thousands
were butchered SUPPOSEDLY "in the Name of Jesus"?
Who can forget THE EVILS of the Inquisition, with
its horrible DEATHS, TORTURE and "forced" conversions, as
if Jesus could be FORCED ON anyone?
Who can forget the
Holy Word of God locked away in monasteries FOR
INACCESSIBLE to anyone but priests, while millions
languished in SPIRITUAL IGNORANCE and DARKNESS and went

period as the "DARK Ages"! It
was DARK, indeed, since it's the ENTRANCE OF His Word

the horrors of the Holocaust?

500 to 1,600 years ago, AND LET THEM GO TO HELL?
Or, do we witness
to them as
we would ANY OTHER sinner in need of God's Grace?
Fact is we
CANNOT undo "the past".
Roman Catholicism is THE OLDEST Christian
denomination dating back some 1,600 years, to around

Evangelicals make is telling Catholics they MUST

is patently FALSE.
A denomination -- unless it
denies the fundamentals of the Christian faith and
teaches HERESY-- has NO POWER to damn anyone.
Once a person receives Christ into their hearts and is
born-again, IT'S NOT YOUR JOB to tell them HOW or WHERE
they should worship or WITH WHOM they should
Evangelicals: THEY DON'T NEED TO attend YOUR
CONGREGATION in order to be saved.
So often I see well-meaning Evangelicals with a
religiously induced and SCREWED UP set of priorities
turn into CONGREGATION RECRUITERS instead of SOUL
What are you MORE INTERESTED in, adding
members to your congregation, or
getting people saved?
I know many born-again former Roman Catholics who
have felt the need to leave that denomination. I've
also known some who feel they can do A BETTER JOB of
reaching their fellow Catholics FROM WITHIN
Catholicism, and have REMAINED Roman Catholics.
The ones in the second group ARE
JUST AS SAVED AS the
ones in the first group.
It is the
Holy Spirit's job -- NOT yours --
TO LEAD THEM TO whatever position in Christ's Body He
wants them in.
Even Martin Luther, the leader of
the Reformation, from
which stem all Evangelical denominations, DID
NOT leave Roman Catholicism; he tried to REFORM IT from
within. That's HISTORIC FACT.
That the religious hierarchy of the day BOOTED
HIM OUT and "excommunicated" him is an entirely

ATTACKING their religion.
If you start off by
calling them "idolaters", criticizing their traditions,
or telling them THEY SHOULD "GET RID OF" this or that, you

few who do worship them OUT
Either way, your mission is to GET

even asked her,

TUESDAY, MARCH 6,
The Roman Catholic
denomination is the largest Christian denomination in
the world, with around ONE BILLION professing members.
As someone raised in Roman Catholicism, I'm well
qualified to speak about their Salvation and about the
gross mistakes many well-intentioned Evangelicals make
in trying to reach them.
Mistake NUMBER ONE is
calling them "NON-Christians".
I can't tell you
how many times I've heard IGNORANT believers say "I'm
not Catholic, I'm Christian", as though Catholics
Whom do you think
Catholics worship, Buddha?
Catholics worship and adore THE
SAME JESUS all true Christians worship.
Catholics TODAY (underline "today") adhere to
the basic tenets of the Christian faith: the
infallibility of Scripture, One God who is Father, Son
and Holy Spirit, the Deity of Jesus, the Virgin Birth
of Christ, the death, bodily Resurrection and Ascension
of Christ, Salvation by faith in Him only, and the
Second Coming of our Lord.
are ALREADY THREE QUARTERS OF THE WAY "THERE".
The ONLY THING many of them are missing is a personal
relationship with Jesus Christ.
I can tell you
that, as a Catholic, I loved and adored Jesus,
worshipped Jesus, prayed and sang to Jesus. ALL
I lacked was INVITING HIM INTO MY HEART.
ALL I needed was
someone to tell me that I needed to RECEIVE HIM INTO MY
HEART as MY PERSONAL Lord, Savior and God.
God for three Baptist preachers who emphasized, time
and again, the need to do JUST THAT.
Thank God they
didn't alienate me by attacking what was back then my

Well, WHAT about
Do you think that lighting a candle,
wearing a medal or crucifix, attending Mass, doing the
sign of the cross, praying the Rosary, and having
pictures or statues of Mary or Jude Thaddeus have the
power to damn anyone?
A statue is merely A PIECE
OF PLASTIC OR CERAMIC.
Plastic and ceramics
don't have power to send ANYONE to hell.
Likewise, pictures are nothing but a piece of
paper or cardboard, and medals are nothing but pieces
ABOUT THE Second Commandment where
God told the children of Israel not to make any graven
My answer to that is: MAKE UP YOUR MINDS
we still observe COMMANDMENTS, or are we saved ONLY BY
GRACE thru FAITH?
Romans 11:6 makes it crystal clear that we
CANNOT be saved by BOTH. It's one OR the other.
Those who receive Jesus into their hearts as
Lord, Savior and God ARE
I don't care how many pictures of Mary they have, I
don't care how many St. Jude statues they have, I don't
care how often the pray the Rosary, I don't care how
often they attend Mass, I don't care how many times
they cross themselves, I don't care how many medals or
crucifixes they wear, I don't care how often they've
had confession, and I don't care how many candles they
light to whatever saints.

Catholicism in order to be saved?
NO, THEY DO

Really? Tell me
Man-invented religion has sold us the
FALSE and DAMNABLE idea that, once
we come to Christ, we're
supposed to live "perfect" lives and NEVER sin AGAIN.

disillusioned, and altogether GIVEN UP on the Christian
faith, because they felt they simply "COULDN'T LIVE UP

While no true child of God sins on purpose, or
takes advantage of the Grace of God, the fact is that UNTIL
OUR MINDS are RENEWED (made
NEW AGAIN) or "born again", WE
WILL CONTINUE SINNING.
I'm probably the only preacher that will tell you
so, but NO ONE will manifest perfect righteousness this
side of the Rapture. It's

Some 2,800 years

On-going events in Syria seem to be paving the way
for this ancient prophecy to be fulfilled.
You can count
Isaiah chapters 13 through 27 correlate extremely
well with the Book of Revelation:

in chapter 23.
We have the devastation of the
earth during the tribulation in chapter 24, the
deliverance and Salvation of Israel in chapters 25 and
26, and the punishment of Satan in chapter 27.
That the destruction of Damascus takes place during the
tribulation is clearly shown in Isaiah 17:4 and 7, for

Holy One of Israel".
Considering that there were no chapter divisions in
the original text, and assuming Isaiah generally
mentions these events in chronological order, the
destruction of Damascus would take place around the
same time the 6th trumpet in Revelation is blown and
the missiles from the Euphrates go off (Revelation
If by any chance it doesn't happen
then, it would happen under the 6th trumpet and 7th
bowl described in Revelation 16:17-18 where the largest
quake in human history takes place and major cities all
over the world, which would include Damascus, are
turned to rubble.
The fact Damascus is singled
out in Isaiah 17, as well as its location in the Isaiah
narrative, leads me to believe the correct scenario is
the first, and not the second, but time will tell.
