One of the most amazing and awe-inspiring sections in the Bible is in Paul’s second letter to the Church in Thesslonica where he warns his brethren about the impending apostasy.
Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition). (2 Thessalonians 2:3; Amplified Bible)
Of even greater astonishment is Jesus’ first denouncement of the Pharisees, beginning with “woe unto you” in Matthew 23:13:
But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, pretenders (hypocrites)! For you shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces; for you neither enter yourselves, nor do you allow those who are about to go in to do so” (Matthew 23:13; Amplified Bible)
John F Walfoord writes in his book “The Kingdom of God,”p. 171:
Those [seven] woes in contrast to the Beatitudes denounce false religion as utterly abhorrent to God and worthy of severe condemnation.”
GOD TV Is Undoubtedly The Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy
2 Peter 2:3 KJV 1611
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
And in their covetousness (lust, greed) they will exploit you with false (cunning) arguments. From of old the sentence [of condemnation] for them has not been idle; their destruction (eternal misery) has not been asleep.
If these indictments of false prophets and their abominable exploitation of people are true, why are people so frightfully gullible to listen to them, believe them and support them? Once again, we should be astonished at the awesome accuracy of Bible prophecy because here again it provides us with the answer. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
On Sunday the 8th July 2012 on SABC 2, a program called “Life 24/7 IV” spoke about the Alpha Course and the benefits of attending. It presented the Alpha Course as a wonderful 10 week Christian course that anyone from all backgrounds, religions, and viewpoints can attend. It’s supposed to be designed in such a way that people can come to investigate and ask question about the existence of God, the purpose of life, the afterlife, the claims of Jesus and more in a totally hostile free environment. Some people want to get beyond religion and find a relationship with God that really changes their life. Others just come for the close, long-lasting friendships that are built during the Alpha course. The Alpha course has been around for many years, but it’s gaining in popularity again.
The problem is the Alpha course is NOT what it presents itself to be and is part of Vatican II’s Evangelization program.

Looking at – THE ALPHA COURSE
by Tricia Tillin – The following article appeared in The Times, 11 May 1996
If you’re unable to deal with issues of Bible doctrine this article will be disturbing in two ways; to those who follow such teachings and to those who hold to the Word of God correctly and are repulsed by distortions.

Because we are living in the last days (and boy are we in the last days), we are seeing more and more ‘Evangelists’ like James Robison turning to Rome, and speaking a message that Pentecostals, Protestants, et al need to come together with Rome and work together on common ground.
This is how the sheep get slaughtered when a charismatic Pastor Xola Skosana gives this as a title to his sermon…

Andrew Strom – The NEW but Quite OLD Apostamation and Refopostasy
So Todd Bentley managed to single handedly show the world what a revival should not look like. According to the Andrew Strom’s of the world, how to tell what a genuine Christian looks like all comes down to the look and feel of the performance. Suit or clown suit? Exciting or somber? Crusades or well digging? Titles or no titles? Megachurch or little community church? Is this thinking sanity or insanity?
This leads me to this newsletter sent out by Andrew Strom from www.revivalschool.com: Read it and weep if you can. Andrew Strom, you are truly trying very hard to persuade the world you are one of the ‘good guys’. But many do see through you.
Warning to the “Apostles”
by Andrew Strom – 25 February 2010
An Open Letter to Peter Wagner, Dutch Sheets & Other “Apostles”.
Please read the below… I know a lot of good people caught up in this, thinking that what these ‘pastors’ are preaching is ok and they can’t see any harm in it. They can’t see any harm in it because the scriptures quoted by these ‘pastors’ sounds ok, logical and scriptural as well. They think because scripture was used to back it up, it must be true and why would a pastor of all people twist scripture or lie – he is a man of God, surely? And they believe all this to be true because they don’t study the bible and weigh and test the spirits to make sure they are not being spoon fed another religion, one that is paving the way for the antiChrist’s grand entrance.
We who believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, i.e., ‘the old way’ will be persecuted by these ‘pastors’ and their followers because we refuse to accept the ‘move into the supernatural’ and their ‘new wineskin’. Are you going to be the persecutor or the persecuted? Are you going to follow these evil men and their new ‘Christ’ or are you going to follow Jesus Christ? » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
