Behold The Storm of the Lord!

Jeremiah 30 English Standard Version (ESV)

Behold the storm of the Lord!
    Wrath has gone forth,
a whirling tempest;
    it will burst upon the head of the wicked.
24 The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back
    until he has executed and accomplished
    the intentions of his mind.
In the latter days you will understand this.

UPDATE October 6, 2015:

Hurricane Joaquin reached hurricane status on September 30, 2015.

Joaquin is rooted in Hebrew, meaning "lifted by Yahweh."

Russia, Iran Seen Coordinating on Defense of Assad Regime in Syria

U.S., regional officials say military buildup in coastal base aimed at safeguarding regime’s stronghold
Moving Towards Ezekiel 38-39
“Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords: Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:”
Ezekiel 38:2-5
” Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. ”
Ezekiel 38:7
ITD Editor's Note about the words: Gog, Magog, Syria, Persia, Hezbollah and Hamas

 Many Bible teachers believe that Gog is the leader of the Russia alliance in the latter days.
 These teachers also believe that Magog, the descendant of Japheth, is identified as the Russian coalition in the latter days.
 Persia in concert with Adolf Hitler, changed its name to Iran (Aryan Land) in May of 1935.
 Iran, is calling for the destruction of the Jewish people worldwide.
 Syria is aligned with Iran.
 Hezbollah, the militant Shiite Islamist group, is the military arm of Iran in Lebanon.
 Hamas, the militant Sunni Islamist group, is a military arm of ISIS in Gaza.
 ISIS, the militant Sunni Islamist group, is warring with Syria, a Shiite controlled country. It is also committed to the destruction of Israel and all western culture.
 Islam, is divided into two warring factions, the Sunni’s and the Shiite.
 However, both warring groups have the USA and Israel as their common enemies.
 Gog (believed to be the chief prince of Russia) is being a guard (protector) of all of these groups.
 Iran, is leading the Shiite’s and believes it will be used of Allah to bring their messiah, The Twelfth Imam. The One who is to succeed Muhammad as leader of Shiite Islam and rule over the world.

Russia and Iran have stepped up coordination inside Syria as they move to safeguard President Bashar al-Assad’s control over his coastal stronghold, according to officials in the U.S. and Middle East, creating a new complication for Washington’s diplomatic goals.
Senior Russian and Iranian diplomats, generals and strategists have held a string of high-level talks in Moscow in recent months to discuss Mr. Assad’s defense and the Kremlin’s military buildup in Syria, according to these officials.
The buildup is continuing: On Monday, U.S. defense officials said Russian surveillance drones have started flying missions over Syria, and Moscow has sent two dozen more fighter jets to Syria.
Much of the activity from both sides in recent months has been concentrated in the coastal region of Latakia, the base of Mr. Assad’s family and his Alawite sect, which has come under pressure from rebel forces to the north, threatening to cut it off from the capital Damascus.

False prophet? Why Pope Francis has disappointed many Roman Catholics

Editor's note: 

It is disturbing that some Evangelicals can't see the pope's agenda while some Catholics can...

False prophet? Why Pope Francis has disappointed many Roman Catholics

...The pope has seriously disappointed those who believe the Roman Catholic Church preserves and teaches the Truth. The Truth is Christ risen and unity with Him. It is not a debate about the minimum wage or air conditioning.

Pope Francis is popular on the world stage, and the crowds love him. But if he fails in his basic duties as the pope, if his concern is more for secular than sacred, if he aids the political agenda of the atheistic left, he is a false prophet leading his flock to a dangerous place, where there is more central planning and less personal liberty.

Andrew P. Napolitano, a former judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey, is the senior judicial analyst at Fox News Channel. 

Pope Honors Islam, Says Jesus and The Cross A Failure

Pope tearing down Christianity in bid for One World Religion


The US visit of the first Jesuit Pope in history concluded with a speech in Philadelphia’s Independance Mall for a crowd of an estimated 50,000 at the “World Meeting of Families.” He pushed for globalization and his usual immigration agenda, preaching for immigrants’ religious freedoms in the prescence of many celebrities which arrived from all over America. This after receiving an unusual blessing from Madonna during her concert in Philadelphia two days earlier, which featured lots of religious imagery including crosses used improperly, and fake nuns.

The closing event for Pope Francis followed his Mass in “Francisville,” which the archbishop of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia renamed the city during mass, at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter and Paul. It was quite boring compared to his appearance in New York at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan for the evening prayer, where he delivered pretty shocking words, stating with no shame to his flock that: “We need to remember that we are followers of Jesus Christ and his life, humanly speaking, ended in failure, the failure of the cross.”

These words have of course outraged most true Christians around the world who cannot imagine Christianity without the value of the cross, which symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus for mankind. It’s impossible for a Christian of any denomination to imagine the very essence of their faith being discussed in this way, let alone by the Pope. The fact that blood was shed on the cross by Jesus for the ultimate self-sacrifice that could help rid mankind of all sins is one of those essentials of the Faith that should never be questioned.

The mainstream media persists with their undying affection for Pope Francis, never commenting on this outrageous statement.

So why is the Jesuit Pope putting the sacrifice of the cross into question? The answer is to gradually prepare us for “One World Religion,” where no symbol will prevail over the other in the name of ecumenism. For this reason, the disgraceful use of the cross by people like Madonna is not only tolerated, but encouraged in their mission to destroy Christianity’s symbols.

The New World Order destroyed the sacrality of the Petrine Ministry when they forced Joseph Ratzinger to resign back in 2013 under the priority of constructing and promoting with Pope Francis a “One World Religion.” The interfaith ceremony on the 25th of September 2015, at the “Ground Zero Memorial,” was concocted by James Massa, a Brooklyn bishop who has been a national Catholic leader on interfaith work. A truly staged event, Pope Francis surrounded himself with supposed leaders of other faiths, that in reality seemed to the expert eye, more like well-placed actors in a well-crafted Jesuit play. There was Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and the young Khalid Latif, described by Wikipedia as someone who “has offered his experience to the U.S. State Department.” The only genuine figure amongst the many seemed the current Archbishop Demetrios, of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and Ex-arch of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, who by the way seemed distant and cold to Pope Francis during the entire ceremony.

Of course most of America’s media loves Pope Francis’ interreligious ways. The Huffington Post reported that Imam Sayyid M. Syeed stated before the Pope’s historic visit to the US that, “Much of Catholic America is excited about Pope Francis’ first visit to the United States — and so are many American Muslims,” adding that Francis’ visit, “is even more important for Muslims than it is for Catholics.” Are you shocked? Not yet? Well, “This pope,” the Imam said, “is our pope.”

During his speech at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Pope Francis stated to his now loyal Muslims, “I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca. In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.”

The stage is now set, and you may not realize this yet, but during the interfaith service at Ground Zero with Pope Francis, on the 25th of September of the year of Our Lord 2015, One World Religion has been activated. But nevermind that, let’s just listen to the Young People’s Chorus of New York City as they sing happily during the departure of the Holy Father from Ground Zero: “Let there be peace on Earth.”

Fukushima reactor — Total meltdown “highly likely”

TV: Experts conclude no nuclear fuel left inside Fukushima reactor — Total meltdown “highly likely”

Published: September 26th, 2015 at 7:38 pm ET 

NHK, Sep 25, 2015: Up to 100% of No. 2 reactor fuel may have melted— A group of researchers says it is highly likely that 70 to 100 percent of fuel has melted at one of the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The group includes researchers from Nagoya University. It has been probing the plant’s No. 2 reactor since April of last year… The researchers say the results of their study show few signs of nuclear fuel at the reactor core… This led them to believe that 70 to 100 percent of fuel at the reactor has likely melted. The researchers say further analyses are needed to determine whether molten fuel penetrated the reactor and fell down. The No.2 reactor is said to have released large amounts of radioactive substances following the March 2011 accident… The locations of nuclear fuel will have a significant impact on the process to remove it…

White House Invites Transvestite, Pro-Abortion Nun, Gay Bishop to Greet Pope

By Cody Derespina | Fox News
Published September 17, 2015

Openly gay Christians, a controversial nun who clashed with the Catholic Church and a transgender woman are reportedly among the invited guests greeting Pope Francis at the White House next week, a move that one Catholic activist calls “an ambush” and “political stunt.”
While it is unclear if gay former Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, gay Catholic blogger Aaron Ledesma, Sister Simone Campbell or biological man Vivian Taylor will have the opportunity to meet the pontiff face to face, the quartet's presence, along with many other guests, is seen by some as a visible nod to factions who would wish to nudge the Church left.
“This is definitely out of the ordinary,” said Michael Hichborn, president of the Catholic watchdog Lepanto Institute. “[President Obama is] trying to force the pope into a situation where it seems as if the Church is giving license to homosexuality and socialism.”

By the late  on Sep 27, 2014 in AM MissivesCurrent IssuesFeaturesRoman Catholicism

In the Apprising Ministries piece On Contemplative Spirituality and Charismania I told you that the ongoing evangelical fascination with corrupt Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM)–along with its parallel track of charismania–is a major reason why we see the mainstream of professing Prostestant Christendom opening itself up for full fellowship with the apostate Roman Catholic Church.
For example, evangelical megapastor Rick Warren is on record embracing apostate Roman Catholicism as a viable form of the historic orthodox Christian faith. As I documented a while back in Southern Baptists Assist the Roman Catholic Church to Infiltrate Evangelicalism, Warren is hardly the only one aligned with/promoted by the Southern Baptist Convention openly and actively involved with this particular apostasy.
However, concerning Rick Warren’s compromised embrace of the Church of Rome, you can see it for yourself e.g. in Rick Warren Endorsing Catholics Come and Rick Warren on the Roman Catholic EWTN Network. The latter piece features a transcription of an interview conducted by Roman Catholic apologist Raymond Arroyo where Warren refers to Rome’s current Pope Francis as “our new pope.” Sadly, scores of people listening to leaders within Ecumenical Church of Deceit (ECoD) are now being led along the broad ecumenical road back to the Roman Catholic Church, the mother of this evil ECoD.
As it pertains to the Church of Rome’s papacy, for our purposes here, in that aforementioned Arroyo interview we find Rick Warren praising the late Pope John Paul II. Now let me bring you back to the Christianity Todayarticle The Pope We Never Knew, which I first cited in The Deceivers of Roman Catholicism. CT author David Scott tells us that Pope “John Paul II’s biggest accomplishment was his ecumenism,” and further, that John Paul II:
is the same pope who called evangelicals in South America “rapacious wolves” for their evangelism of Catholics…
The pope who in his 1995 encyclical Ut Unum Sint invited input from non-Catholic Christians on the primacy of the office of Peter, is the same man whose Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 1999 declared the primacy of Peter “immutable.” (source)

A Blood Red Moon & Mars Meets a Lion

This Week's Night Sky: A Lunar Eclipse and Mars Meets a Lion

As summer reaches its official end, Venus puts on a show and a blood moon appears.

Picture of simulated close-up orbital view shows Mars and the constellation Leo

In this simulated view, Mars appears in front of the constellation Leo. The pair will appear together in Earth skies this week.

By Andrew Fazekas, National Geographic
Venus most brilliant. Look toward the low southeast sky at dawn in mid-September and your eye can't help but be drawn to a sparkling point of light known as the “morning star.”

That “star” is the second planet from the sun, Venus, shining about 17 times brighter than Jupiter, the other major planet visible in morning skies this month. And on Monday, September 21, Venus puts on its best morning show for the entire year, reaching magnitude 4.8, the brightest it can get in our skies.
Through a small telescope, the planet's disk will look like a miniature version of the crescent moon, thanks to the geometry of our two worlds in relation to the sun. You don't want to miss this show because Venus won't appear this bright and high in the sky again until 2016.
Autumn equinox. At 4:21 a.m. on Wednesday, September 23, the fall season kicks off in the Northern Hemisphere and spring starts in the Southern Hemisphere.
The September equinox marks one of the four major turning points in the seasonal cycle. Seasons occur on Earth because the planet’s axis is tilted at 23.5 degrees with respect to its orbital plane. During the fall and spring equinox, that axis is tilted neither away nor towards the sun but has both Northern and Southern hemispheres experiencing equal amounts of sunshine.
The word equinox comes from Latin meaning “equal night” and refers to the approximately 12-hour-long day and night that occurs only on these two days of the year, with the sun rising due east and setting due west.
ars walks with Leo. Early risers on Thursday, September 24, should look toward the low western horizon to catch sight of Mars meeting up with Regulus, the brightest star in the constellation Leo, the lion. The cosmic duo will be separated by less than 1 degree, which is less than the width of your index finger held at arm’s length. Bracketing the dim pair will be the super-bright planets Venus, above, and Jupiter, below.
Super moon shadow. The moon will appear to blush orange-red late Sunday night/early Monday morning as it undergoes a total eclipse, visible across both American continents and Europe. This lunar eclipse is the last in a series called a tetrad, in which four of these rare events occur, each separated by about six months.
Earth's shadow will begin to take a bite out of the moon's silvery disk at 9:07 p.m. EDT. The lunar eclipse then enters totality at 10:11 p.m. EDT and will remain there for 72 minutes. The moon’s reddish appearance gives this type of eclipse the nickname of “blood moon.”

IThe Vatican released a statement Tuesday officially welcoming the nuclear agreement between the P5+1 world powers (U.S., UK, China, France, Russia, Germany) and Iran, stating that the Holy See believes Tehran will reduce its nuclear capabilities in exchange for sanctions relief. In calling for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons, the Vatican also appeared to target Israel, given that it is the lone nuclear power in the region.

The Vatican “values positively this agreement because it considers that the way to resolve disputes and difficulties should always be that of dialogue and negotiation,” Archbishop Paul Gallagher said in a statement.

1 million people evacuate as quake rattles North Chile 

1 million people evacuate as quake rattles North Chile

By The Associated PressPublished: September 17, 2015, 5:49 am 

ILLAPEL, Chile (AP) — Thousands of residents of this small city in northern Chile were sleeping outside Thursday after a powerful earthquake destroyed their homes, forced more than 1 million to evacuate and killed at least eight people in the quake-prone South American nation.

Several coastal towns were flooded from small tsunami waves set off by late Wednesday’s quake, which shook the Earth so strongly that rumbles were felt across South America.

The magnitude-8.3 quake lasted for three minutes, causing buildings to sway in the capital, Santiago, and prompting authorities to issue a tsunami warning for the Andean nation’s entire Pacific coast. People sought safety in the streets of inland cities, while others along the shore took to their cars to race to higher ground.

Captive: The Purpose Driven Hostage

October 1, 2005

Earlier this year, when Pastor Rick Warren and the human interest-hungry press began heaving hyperbole over hostage Ashley Smith's alleged miracle in Atlanta, I carefully covered the reported facts in an article entitled: The Purpose Driven Hostage and came to a completely different and less than enchanting conclusion than that of the media at large. It was, I admit, a disconcerting summary and one that certainly wouldn't warm the hearts of fawning Warrenites, help sell any books for Zondervan or ads for any of the competing news networks and chat shows that were all cashing in on Ashley's ordeal.

As a result, many wrote in to me expressing, not only their appreciation; but also their amazement that they had somehow, in all of the excitement, overlooked the contradictions that now seemed so obvious; something, frankly, all of us are capable of when we let ourselves become seduced by voices around us that contradict the Word of God.

As you might expect, there were others who denigrated me for shamefully questioning Ashley Smith's confusing testimony and glorious experience with "God," missing the point of the piece entirely, which I realize can happen when one becomes emotionally invested in a lie. When confronted with the facts, they're forced into either doing an embarrassing about-face in front of everyone and looking like a turncoat and fool or joining in on the attack against that one dissenting voice that had the audacity to ruin the group fuzzy. After all, it's certainly no secret that our sinful nature would much rather laugh with liars than defend the truth alone.

Although the media couldn't wait to turn a mass murderer's conversation with his hostage into a conversion experience for our collective consumption, as if Smith, reading from The Purpose Driven Life, had somehow brought about a spiritual awakening in kidnapper, Brian Nichols' pathetic life; for some reason they didn't think it was all that important or relevant to point out to anyone later that his new "purpose in life" would be to follow Allah and deny his horrific homicides in court before the eyes of those who witnessed them. You see, Nichols not only converted to Islam in jail after the hostage incident, but also pleaded "not guilty" to the four murders he committed in front of numerous witnesses. (Unbeknownst to most Purpose Driven proponents and their prospects; without confession and repentance, there is no conversion to Christ.)

So, if you were looking for a miracle here, it didn't happen - unless you're a Muslim.
After stumbling upon these new developments regarding Nichols a few months ago, I was momentarily inclined to write about some of the rotten fruit that was beginning to appear; but elected to just let it slide since nobody seemed to care much about him anymore; and Ashley, with her newfound fame and fortune was becoming all the rage, much to the delight of Rick Warren and his publishers.

Well, in light of some additional late breaking news concerning our favorite hostage, I would say that it is now time for that PDL fruit update.

As many of you already know, the Associated Press reported on Tuesday the 27th of September, that, in Ashley Smith's newly released book about her hostage experience, entitled, "Unlikely Angel: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero," she reveals for the first time that, during her captivity, Brian Nichols asked her if she had any marijuana he could smoke. Though Warren's Purpose Driven poster-child-to-be had no pot to give him, she did happen to have some crystal meth tucked away in her purse that she was willing to share.
"Smith says in her book that as the night wore on after Nichols had snorted some of Smith's meth she tried to win Nichols' trust by talking about her faith in God and relating to him her personal stories…She writes that she asked Nichols if he wanted to see the danger of drugs and lifted up her tank top several inches to reveal a five-inch scar down the center of her torso the aftermath of a car wreck caused by drug-induced psychosis. She says she let go of the steering wheel when she heard a voice saying, 'Let go and let God.'" -- Associated Press
That's right; Nichols' new drug supplier and fellow user was compassionately counseling him on the dangers of using drugs - her drugs, to be more specific.
According to Rick Warren, this is how God works.

Now, it doesn't pose all that much of a public relations problem for Ashley Smith and her publisher since she's just a poor, confused recovering drug addict and mental patient who has been through so much in life that nobody with a heart and a hanky is about to hold her responsible for anything prior to her kidnapping, and probably after - especially if she continues to repeat the line that has helped so many busted celebrities over the years: "Yes, I've made some mistakes in the past; but I'm putting it all behind me now and moving on with my life" - which happens to be in keeping with Rick Warren's "accept yourself, love yourself, forgive yourself, believe in yourself and be true to yourself" gospel of self-esteem that he so courageously proclaimed in the March 2005 issue of The Ladies Home Journal.
This does, however, present a potentially explosive public relations nightmare for "America's Pastor" and his Purpose Driven Premise among more biblically minded evangelicals since he specifically used Ashley Smith's "miracle" to help market himself, his books, his programs and his Peace Plan to fellow Christians, many of whom believe that crystal meth is not a fruit of the Spirit. In fact, I believe the hostage crisis was even called the "high water mark" for his book; andthis, my friends was the point of my Purpose Driven Hostage commentary that some seemed to miss.
It's not about criticizing or condemning struggling victims like Ashley Smith, even though she obviously has many serious obstacles yet to overcome. It is about warning her and others like her that tragedy awaits those who hear and obey voices that contradict the Word of God, however compelling they may be; something Ashley has a history of doing.
She went on to say in the AP article: "It's hard for people to understand the miracle of the story…"
Well, yes Ashley, it is; but I'm sure Tricky Ricky and his public relations team will think of something. They always do…
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." - 1st John 4:1

Star Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Party


The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s stated goal in America is to “destroy the Western civilization from within.” Star-Spangled Shariah: The Rise of America’s First Muslim Brotherhood Partyshows the newest weapon in their arsenal for doing so – a self-described “political Party” called the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO). This new monograph “connects the dots” between the Brotherhood’s secret plan to impose Shariah here and the insidious use it intends to make of our democratic political system to that end.

The USCMO understands that in order for it to succeed, the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood must be galvanized to the execution of the “Civilization-Jihadist Process” – a term taken from a key 1991 Brotherhood document, An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America, submitted as evidence by the Justice Department in the landmark 2008U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, et al. HAMAS terror funding trial:
Star Spangled ShariaThe process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers, so that is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.” 
By its nature, the object of such a stealthy form of jihad is to ensure that the target community remains unaware of the extent of the threat until it is too late. It is our purpose with this volume and the other monographs of the Center’s Civilization Jihad Reader Series to raise the alarm and to engage the American people and their elected representatives in countering this threat while there is still time.
Center for Security Policy President Frank Gaffney said of the new Civilization Jihad Reader:
The Muslim Brotherhood agenda for the United States demonstrably seeks through subversive infiltration of American institutions the triumph of shariah. We are now on notice that U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is simply the leading edge of the jihadist movement in this country. While the USCMO seeks to cloak itself in red, white, and blue, it is only for the purpose of accomplishing what can aptly be described as “Star Spangled Shariah.”

California Wild Fires: Post-apocalyptic Wasteland


Post-Apocalyptic Level of Destruction Caused by California Fires

Dueling fires in California have caused mass evacuations and left destruction in its wake.
The Valley Fire, which is centralized about 100 miles north of San Francisco, has grown to cover 50,000 acres, according to authorities.
So far, 20,000 people have been evacuated and up to 1,000 homes or businesses have been destroyed, a California battalion chief told ABC News on Sunday.
Now that some of the areas of destruction can be viewed for the first time since those flames cooled, areas of Middletown, California, look almost like a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Signs In The Heavens: Partial Solar Eclipse Marks The Ten Days of Awe


Partial solar eclipse blocks out the sun, as stargazers get ready for blood moon and supermoon

A partial solar eclipse has blocked out the sun, the first part of a month of stunning astronomical events

The second solar eclipse of the year happened this morning, leaving stunning views over southern Africa and Antarctica.

But it is likely to be eclipsed itself by a rare astronomical event at the end of the month – a so-called supermoon where it will appear far bigger than usual, and a lunar eclipse that will mean that it is blocked out. The events are set to be so spectacular that some online have even taken to claiming they signal the end of the world.

The solar eclipse was only visible in the sky to those in the southern part of Africa – including people in South Africa, Mozambique, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Madagascar – and in Antarctica. But livestreams and photos allowed anyone to tune into the eclipse as it happened, and stunning pictures have been shared after the event.

Pope Invites Rick Warren To Speak at Philadelphia Conference

Pontiff Invites Rick Warren To Speak at Philadelphia Conference on Family

Rick Warren, senior pastor of Saddleback Church, has announced he will be speaking in Philadelphia later this month at the World Meeting of Families event to commence Pope Francis' highly anticipated visit to the United States.

Warren announced his plans to attend the event during the Sunday morning worship service at the Lake Forest, CA church. "Next month, Pope Francis is coming to America for a world gathering on families," he told the congregation.

"I'm not a Catholic, and we have many differences with Catholics. But they love the Lord and we have much in common with that - we believe in the Bible, and the Trinity, and in Jesus and the resurrection." "There are probably going to be a million people in Philadelphia at this final event with Pope Francis, and he's asked me to be the final speaker," the Purpose Driven Life author continued amid cheering and applause.

According to its website, the World Meeting of Families is a "week-long international event of prayer, catechesis, and celebration that draws participants from around the globe." The 8th annual event, which organizers say will be attended by up to two million people, seeks to "strengthen the bonds between families and to witness the crucial importance of marriage and the family to all society."

"...Warren is scheduled to be a keynote speaker at one of the events. For discerning Christians who do care about what is happening to the church, including the current ecumenical move to bring the “lost brethren” back to the Mother Church (and ultimately form a unified global religious body as the Bible states will happen), we’d like to bring to your attention these five articles by Roger Oakland and ask that you pray that many eyes will be opened to what is happening. And much of this taking place within evangelicalism, if not most of it, can be attributed to the actions of leaders such as Rick Warren, Beth Moore, the late Chuck Colson, and many others, who have escalated this dangerous ecumenism that is changing the face of mainstream Christianity today..."
