- MORE GREETINGS to all and the newcomers to this list. We'd
like to introduce ourselves. George and Rita Williams founded
this ministry. We were Mormons (Temple Mormons) for 20 years.
We prayed to God in 1992 to allow us to do a ministry speaking
out against Scientology. Six months later God led us to the truth:
out of the cult of Mormonism. We did not know at the time we
were in a cult. No-one had witnessed to us in 20 years.
- The Holy Spirit brought us to information about all the cults
and the present development of the New World Order. We began
bringing our research to you. Because all the research was already
done, we decided to build a library within Cephas Ministry. Our
newsletters are not designed to provoke
anger which is strictly prohibited in Scripture. It is to shed
light on activities by those who would deceive those who are
recorded in the Book of Life, by devious methods and systematic
- We are Bible students and have left all worldly organizations.
We attend church if the message is from the authorized Bible.
The focus of these newsletters is to prove why we had to leave
the world system. We are called 'Watchmen on the Wall' which
God always had during the Old / New Testament Times.
- To understand what is happening, one has to know the Bible
to compare notes.
- The first section is about the church.
The news about churches is unedited unless indicated by Ednotes.
The church as we knew it, is undergoing disintegration. This
began on a fast track in the early nineteen sixties when the
Catholic Church produced liberal Vatican II to replace Vatican
- The trend since then has been ecumenical which is truly what
the word 'Catholicism' means: a universal religion all
inclusive and multicultural. The Bible calls for a final church
which doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word of God has
undergone many changes to fit the present mode. The Bible calls
for a falling away from the truth before Jesus
comes back for His Bride, the true believers are called 'Ekklesia.'
Our newsletters prove this fact and prove that the Bible is true
from beginning to end.
- The second section is about globalism
where we bring your attention to the social, political and global
trend, so called democratizing what is left. One third of the
world still remains to be taken over. It again proves that we
are moving to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied
in the Bible.
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings with what is happening in Israel. We describe and watch
for signs of the coming Tribulation to confirm that we are moving
into that space of time.
- Watchmen on the wall do not solicit memberships. We have
an email group that gets information when we upload new information
and a newsletter whenever it is possible time wise. We love the
Lord with all our hearts and minds and we love all people God
has created but especially those who love our Lord and Savior,

- TODAY'S Scripture Study: THE HOLY
- THE BEMA JUDGMENT: "... In both Romans 14:10-12 and
II Corinthians 5:10, the Greek word that is translated as judgment
seat is BEMA, defined by Strongs Hebrew-Greek Dictionary
as a step, i.e., foot-breath; by implication, a rostrum,
i.e., a tribunal, and is translated as judgment-seat,
set [foot] on, throne, in the King James Version. It is
in direct contrast to another Greek word, CRITERION, which is
also translated as judgment seat in other New Testament
passages. According to Thayers Greek-English Lexicon Of
The New Testament, CRITERION means the instrument or means
of trying or judging anything; the rule by which one judges,
or the place where judgment is given; the tribunal of a
judge; a bench of judges.
Thus, the Greek word BEMA, used for judgment seat in the above
scriptures, carries the connotation of honor and reward rather
than justice and judgment. This dictionary definition confirms
the obvious meaning of I Corinthians 3:9-15, which clearly states
that Christians will have the quality and character of their
earthly deeds judged by Christ to determine the degree of righteousness
attained by each believer. This becomes even more evident with
II Corinthians 5:10 when that verse is placed in the context
of the verses surrounding it. Because only believers will have
a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens;
and only believers will experience mortality (that) might
be swallowed up of life; and only believers have the confidence
that whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from
It should be emphasized that this judgment of the saints
will have nothing to do with any judicial judgment to determine
if an individual is a true believer because the salvation which
the believer receives through Christ Jesus delivers him from
all judgment. (John 5:24) (Romans 8:1) (I John 4:17). To say
otherwise would deny the efficacy of the death of Christ Jesus,
and nullify Gods promise that their sins and iniquities
will I remember no more (Hebrews 10:17). Instead, this
bema judgment by Christ simply determines the extent of each
persons reward based on their motives for doing the things
they did during their lifetime.
Things done in his body, according to that he hath done,
whether it be good or bad. The Greek word translated as
bad in this phrase is based on the Greek word PHAULOS,
rather than KAKOS or PONERAS, which are the usual Greek words
employed for the word bad whenever moral or ethical
evil is the actual intended meaning. In this instance, however,
according to Richard C. Trench in New Testament Synonyms, the
Greek word PHAULOS is used to indicate ...evil under another
aspect, not so much... malignity, but... good-for-nothingness....
Therefore, the purpose of the bema judgment is not to determine
the moral goodness or evil of our earthly deeds, but whether
each deed is acceptable or worthless to the Kingdom and Glory
of God. That is why I Corinthians 3:13 says that: Every
mans work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare
it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall
try every mans work of what sort it is. However,
the works which do survive the test of fire are the deeds for
which believers are rewarded:" Full treatment of this subject:
[NOTE from the editor of Cephas Ministry. Evangelist Frank
Caw who authored the article "The Bema Judgment" passed
away in 2005. The website was taken over by Tim McHyde in Costa
Rica. In checking the link to the contributor, the author of
this website is in juxta position with Frank Caw and disputes
what Frank Caw discovered in years and years of Scripture studies
and developing his ministry. I touched base with him some years
ago when we all started out on AOL. So why is Timothy McHyde
hosting it? He is of the young generation who grew up on Star
Wars. There is no deep understanding of God's Book and to get
his point across he comes up with a formula to convince us that
only he is correct. There was no mention of the Holy Spirit in
his sales pitch. He uses Luke 21:36. Ironically Jesus states
there, that there is a way of escape
from all these things. It is too late
after He appears on the Mount of Olives which begins Armageddon.
Those who refused to take the mark are already beheaded. Who
is going to be raptured at that point? They are all dead. His
appearance on the Mount of Olives is to the Remnant of Jews who
have not received Him as their Lord and Savior prior to
- God has to do a miracle to save them even when they see Him
in person, because their hearts are so hardened that He can't
penetrate them. God has to give this Remnant a new flesh heart
and artificially save them without repentance and write His laws
into their hearts so they will behave and save them as He promised
- Jesus made a way for Jews to accept Christ Jesus as their
Lord and Savior today and become ONE with the Church,
His Body, which will be snatched up and raptured prior
to this event as promised. We will not see Him on this event
according to the Apostle Paul.
- Paul was assigned to the Gentiles but was a Jew and taught
Jews as well. The early Church was made up of Jews and Gentiles.
Why is that so hard to accept for Jews? Do they really wish to
go through another Hollocaust by Islam as Netanyhau predicts?
Jesus Christ is offering protection from the Tribulation to Jews
as well as Gentiles. They will be unified into One Body.
- Jews cannot seem to forgive and pray for their enemies who
are long dead and buried. Because of the unforgiveness in their
hearts which is contrary to God's message, they will miss
out on God's loving plan of "escape from
all these things." It says so, read it. Jesus
was speaking to the Jews here in the synagogue. Jesus said to
be accounted worthy. How do we become accounted worthy? By works?
No. Simply by repenting of our stupidity and accepting
the righteousness of Christ Jesus as ours, because His is the
only righteousness that God will accept. Ours is
filthy rags. We have nothing to offer, Jew or Gentile.
We are part of this contaminated world and just filthy simply
by having to participate in it. We are cursed from day one and
need righteousness to approach God and the only
way we can attain it is by receiving Jesus' righteousness imputed
(a free deposit to our account) from Jesus Christ our precious
Forgiver, Lover of mankind who died for all, who made the ultimate
sacrifice for us, not Himself, so we would
not have to burn in a Satanic Holocaust forever. That was not
God's invention but Satan's due to Satan's free will.
- God allowed the holocaust to show us the depth of depravity
of mankind run by Satanic forces. Believers all had to come to
the point of becoming complete fools for having believed
that there was anything worthwhile to live for in this horrible
place. Satan's attack on mankind are endless and to think they
will go on for eternity for those who do not take Jesus Christ
serious and forfeit their eternal future, is unbearable to those
who have come into God's rest.
- We cannot make that decision when it is too late. God describes
the event: "The Tribulation" which will follow when
the globalization is complete, in the very near future, as a
TRAP, which means that we have to be ready for it not to get
caught in the trap. Satan has the power to deceive all
with these attacks on the TRUTH.
- Born again believers who stay on the Word will stand strong.
Their house is built ON THE ROCK which is Christ Jesus whose
name is the WORD.
- Luke 21:27-37 And then shall they see the Son of man coming
in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things
begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads;
for your redemption draweth nigh. And he spake to them a parable;
Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth,
ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at
hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass,
know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. Verily I say
unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.
Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass
away. And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of
this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare
shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole
earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be
accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come
to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. And in the
day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he went
out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives."

ADMITS PURCHASE OF DRUGS BUT DIDN'T PARTAKE AND ADMITS TO GAY
- Haggard was born in Indiana. His father, J. M. Haggard, a
practicing veterinarian in Yorktown, Indiana, founded an international
charismatic ministry featured in the PBS Middletown documentary
series. In 1972, at age sixteen, Haggard became a born-again
Christian after hearing a sermon from the late evangelist Bill
Bright in Dallas, Texas. He was educated at Oral Roberts University,
a charismatic Christian university in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1978,
Haggard married Gayle Alcorn. The couple have five children:
Christy; Marcus (1984), who is also a pastor in Colorado Springs
at the Boulder Street Church; Jonathan (1989); Alex (1992); and
Elliot (1995). In November 1984, he was associate pastor of Bethany
World Prayer Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana when, according
to Haggard, missionary to Mexico City and Haggard confidant/mentor
Danny Ost had a vision of Haggard founding his church in Colorado
Springs. Haggard moved to Colorado shortly afterwards and founded
New Life Church. Initially, the church space was Haggard's own
basement, growing to rented spaces in strip malls. At the time
he was removed from his job, New Life Church operated from a
campus in northern Colorado Springs, reporting a membership of
fourteen thousand people.

- 2ND PASTOR RESIGNS OVER GAY SEX SCANDAL
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- December 11, 2006 - The founding pastor
of a second Colorado church has resigned over gay sex allegations,
just weeks after the evangelical community was shaken by the
scandal surrounding megachurch leader Ted Haggard. Haggard, a
gay-marriage opponent, admitted to unspecified "sexual immorality"
when he resigned last month as president of the National Association
of Evangelicals and pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church
in Colorado Springs. A male prostitute had said he had had sex
with Haggard for three years.
- On Sunday, Paul Barnes, founding pastor of the 2,100-member
Grace Chapel in this Denver suburb, told his evangelical congregation
in a videotaped message he had had sexual relations with other
men and was stepping down.
- Dave Palmer, associate pastor of Grace Chapel, told The Denver
Post that Barnes confessed to him after the church received a
call last week. The church board of elders accepted Barnes' resignation
on Thursday. On the videotape, which The Post was allowed to
view, Barnes told church members: "I have struggled with
homosexuality since I was a 5-year-old boy. ... I can't tell
you the number of nights I have cried myself to sleep, begging
God to take this away."
- Barnes, 54, led Grace Chapel for 28 years. He and his wife
have two adult children. Palmer said in a written statement that
"While we cannot condone what he has done, we continue to
support and love Paul."
- CONFIRMS THE ABOVE: PASTOR RESIGNS OVER HOMOSEXUALITY
Denver Post, USA - December 11, 2006 - Eric Gorski - In a tearful
videotaped message Sunday to his congregation, the senior pastor
of a thriving evangelical megachurch in south metro Denver confessed
to sexual relations with other men and announced he had voluntarily
resigned his pulpit. A month ago, the Rev. Paul Barnes of Grace
Chapel in Doug las County preached to his 2,100-member congregation
about integrity and grace in the aftermath of the Ted Haggard
- Now, the 54-year-old Barnes joins Haggard as a fallen evangelical
minister who preached that homosexuality was a sin but grappled
with a hidden life. I have struggled with homosexuality
since I was a 5-year-old boy, Barnes said in the 32- minute
video, which church leaders permitted The Denver Post to view.
I cant tell you the number of nights I have
cried myself to sleep, begging God to take this away.
- His wife, Char, cradled his hand. Barnes declined an interview
request through the church.
- Unlike Haggard, who had the ear of the White House, Barnes
is not a household name. He is a self-described introvert who
avoids politics, preferring to talk about a Gen-X service at
the nondenominational church he started 28 years ago in his basement,
church officials said. Barnes and Grace Chapel stayed out of
the debate over Amendment 43, a measure approved by Colorado
voters last month defining marriage as between one man and one
- I cant think of a single sermon where he ever
had a political agenda, said Dave Palmer, an associate
- Palmer said the church got an anonymous call last week from
a person concerned for the welfare of Barnes and the church.
The caller had overheard a conversation in which someone mentioned
blowing the whistle on evangelical preachers engaged
in homosexuality, including Barnes, Palmer said.
- Palmer met with Barnes, who confessed. At an emergency meeting
Thursday, a board of elders accepted Barnes resignation
after he admitted sexual infidelity, violating the
churchs code of conduct. Church leaders also must affirm
annually that they are living the moral and ethical teachings
of Scripture in my public and private life.
- Asked for details of Barnes transgressions, Palmer
called them infrequent events in his life that to
his knowledge did not take place in recent months. Sitting cross-legged
in jeans and an open-collar shirt, Barnes spoke in his video
about evolving feelings growing up in a firm moral family: from
confused little boy to adolescent racked with self-loathing and
guilt. In their only talk about sex, Barnes said his father took
him on a drive and talked about what he would do if a fag
approached him. Barnes thought, Is that how youd
feel about me? It was like a knife in my heart, and it
made me feel even more closed. When Barnes experienced
a Christian conversion at 17, it gave him a glimmer of hope.
But his homosexual feelings never went away, he said. He said
he cannot accept that a person is born that way,
so he looks to childhood influences. Barnes said he asked God
many times why he was called to ministry, to start Grace Chapel,
carrying a horrible burden.
- The soft-spoken Barnes is an unlikely big-church pastor.
After graduating from Dallas Theological Seminary, Barnes and
his wife moved to Denver and began a Bible study. His church
met in a school and a mortuary, bought property at Colorado Boulevard
and Arapahoe Road, and now occupies a campus off County Line
Road that used to be a car dealership. Barnes described struggling
with what he believes is the biblical teaching that homosexuality
is an abomination. Over the years, he grew to accept that this
is my thorn in the flesh.
- Barnes expressed hope for a future where one can be
who you are and be accepted and loved in the Christian
community and also spoke about separating some of the teachings
from Scripture from Jesus Christ. Palmer said he wasnt
sure what Barnes meant, but Barnes told him that he believes
God views homosexuality as a sin. Barnes said he has been in
counseling three times and never found anyone he could talk to.
His wife said on the video that she didnt know about her
husbands struggles until he confided in her last week.
The couple has two daughters in their 20s. Char Barnes said she
feels like Im living someone elses life
but was grateful her husband revealed himself. The couple said
they hope to stay in Denver. Near the tapes end, Paul Barnes
says, This is what it is, its right, and its
time. Church elder Russ Pilcher said the reaction at services
Sunday was largely concern for the couple. I thought, Where
did I fall short in making myself so unapproachable that he couldnt
come to me? Pilcher said. Paul and Char Barnes will
get counseling, but unlike Haggard, they will not go into seclusion
or report to a board of reconcilers, Palmer said. He said it
will be more personal and that church members will play a role.
Associate pastor John Zivojinovic is the interim senior pastor,
and choosing a successor is still months away, Pilcher said.
Given the Haggard story, Palmer was asked whether Barnes
fall from grace would expose the evangelical community to further
charges of hypocrisy.
- The criticism is valid if you look at perfection being
the mark, because the next person who stands at our pulpit is
going to be guilty of not being perfect as well, he said.
Does that mean we have to change what we say about the
word of God? We cant do that.
Sermon: Most of us
- To hear what the Rev. Paul Barnes said during the fall of
fellow pastor Ted Haggard, about the masks most of
us wear, click here. On Nov. 5, the Rev. Paul Barnes scrapped
his prepared sermon. The Rev. Ted Haggard scandal was still unfolding,
and he couldnt let it go unnoticed. So Barnes wrote a new
sermon: Integrity, Sin and Grace.
- Barnes defined integrity as being the same on the outside
as you are on the inside. All people come to God broken,
he said. Maybe its alcoholism, he said. Or a bad temper.
Or pornography. Some people overcome their problems; others continue
to live with them, he said. Most of us, if the truth were
known, we wear masks, Barnes said.
we wear masks because we want to be appear more perfect than
we are. But the reality of it is, all of us are so very imperfect.
- MORMONS GRANT AWARD TO CATHOLIC CARDINAL
- December 1, 2006 - www.wayoflife.org - The Mormon Church
in Australia presented Catholic Cardinal Edward Cassidy with
an award for his devotion to "ecumenical and inter-faith
dialogue" ("Interfaith Honour for Cardinal Cassidy,"
Catholic Weekly, Oct. 1, 2006). The Mormons are gradually working
their way into the mainstream of the ecumenical movement. In
November 2004 some evangelicals, (including Ravi Zacharias, CCM
musician Michael Card, Richard Mouw of Fuller Seminary, and Craig
Hazen of Biola University) joined hands with Mormons in Salt
Lake City for an "Evening of Friendship." The event
was co-sponsored by Standing Together Ministries, which was formed
in 2001 by "evangelical" preacher Greg Johnson to "build
greater dialogue between evangelical Christians and Latter-day
Saints." In the Deseret Morning News, Card is quoted as
saying that "he doesn't see Mormonism and evangelical Christianity
as opposed to each other; they are more like the two ends of
a long thread--part of the same thing." He also said, "The
older I get, I guess the more I want to integrate everything.
I think it's more important to be faithful than right" (Nov.
16, 2004). I am not surprised at this move toward the acceptance
of Mormons by some evangelicals. If John Paul II and Mother Teresa,
with their false gospel, can be accepted as fellow believers,
why not Mormons?
- BAPTISTS AND CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS TOGETHER
- December 1, 2006 - An interfaith Thanksgiving service on
November 23 in Birmingham, Alabama, brought together Baptists,
Methodists, Presbyterians, Muslims, Christian Scientists, and
others. Baptist Church of the Covenant hosted the event and Southside
Baptist Church participated. Wendy Clayton, a member of the First
Church of Christ, Scientist, gave a Bible reading. David Carboni,
pastor of Highlands United Methodist Church said in his sermon,
"We don't always thank and we don't always acknowledge that
God is with us." The problem with this statement is that
the Muslim's god and the Christian Scientist's god and the liberal
Protestant's god is not the God of the Bible. Further, Jesus
Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no
man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). Well
did the apostle Paul say, "Be ye not unequally yoked together
with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with
unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
(2 Corinthians 6:14). http://www.wayoflife.org
- STUDY SHOWS POP MUSIC'S IMMORAL INFLUENCE ON YOUNG PEOPLE
- December 1, 2006 - The Rand Corporation published a study
in the August issue of Pediatrics magazine that shows the powerful
influence of pop music on the behavior of youth. The study, based
on interviews with nearly 1,500 teens, found that those who listen
to sexually explicit music are almost twice as likely to start
having sex within the following two years than those who listen
to little or none of that music ("Pop Music's Sex Ed,"
Washington Times, Aug. 21, 2006). Of course this is not rocket
science. The Bible says, "Be not deceived: evil communications
corrupt good manners" (1 Cor. 15:33). Study director Steven
Martino observed that the sexual references in pop songs have
become increasingly direct and are marketed to young teenagers
through the likes of MTV. In fact, a great many of the lyrics
are unprintable in a Christian magazine. The Rand study found
that the sexual content in popular music is even more rampant
than it is in TV, movies, magazines, and newspapers. If ever
there were a day when preachers need to be lifting a loud and
clear voice against the evil of pop music and parents need to
be guarding their children against it, it is today! http://www.wayoflife.org

- Secret FEMA Plan To Use Pastors as Pacifiers in Preparation
For Martial Law Nationwide initiative trains volunteers to teach
congregations to "obey the government" during seizure
of guns, property, forced inoculations and forced relocation.
- Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | May 24 2006 - A Pastor
has come forward to blow the whistle on a nationwide FEMA program
which is training Pastors and other religious representatives
to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations
to "obey the government" in preparation for a declaration
of martial law, property and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.
- In March of this year the Pastor, who we shall refer to as
Pastor Revere, was invited to attend a meeting of his local FEMA
chapter which circulated around preparedness for a potential
bio-terrorist attack, any natural disaster or a nationally declared
- The FEMA directors told the Pastors that attended that it
was their job to help implement FEMA and Homeland Security directives
in anticipation of any of these eventualities. The first directive
was for Pastors to preach to their congregations Romans 13, the
often taken out of context bible passage that was used by Hitler
to hoodwink Christians into supporting him, in order to teach
them to "obey the government" when martial law is declared.

- POLYGAMIST LEADER ORDERED TO STAND TRIAL
By JENNIFER DOBNER and PAUL FOY - Associated Press Writers -
ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- December 14, 2006 - A judge ordered
the leader of a polygamist sect Thursday to stand trial on charges
of rape as an accomplice on allegations that he forced a 14-year-old
girl to marry and have sex with an older cousin in 2001.
- Warren Jeffs, 51, pleaded not guilty Thursday in state court.
The leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints could face up to life in prison if convicted.
- The woman, now 20, was not in the courtroom to hear Washington
County Judge James Shumate's decision. She testified last month
that she felt "completely trapped and defeated" during
a ceremony at a Nevada motel - the "darkest time of my entire
life." The woman, identified as Jane Doe No. 4, left the
sect after 3 1/2 years, remarried and had a baby last week. Jeffs'
defense team contends he is being pursued for his religious beliefs.
- In his closing argument, defense attorney Wally Bugden told
Shumate he would be making a "factual leap" to find
probable cause for a trial. "Saying I don't want to get
married is not the same as saying I don't want to have intercourse,"
Bugden said. The FLDS sect traces its roots to early Mormon theology,
which promoted plural marriage. The modern Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints disavows polygamy and renounced the practice
in 1890 as a condition of Utah's statehood.
- Members of the FLDS consider themselves "fundamentalist
Mormons" who continue to believe polygamy will bring glory
in heaven. They also consider Jeffs a prophet of God with dominion
over their salvation.
- Many sect members live in the twin towns of Hildale, Utah,
and Colorado City, Ariz.
- Jeffs also faces felony charges in Arizona, accused there
of arranging a marriage between a 16-old-girl and a 28-year-old
man, who was already married. Jeffs, at the time one of the FBI's
Ten Most Wanted fugitives, was arrested Aug. 28 in a traffic
stop on Interstate 15 just north of Las Vegas. He is being held
without bail in county jail.
- EVEN BEHIND BARS, WARREN JEFF'S GRIP ON POLYGAMIST SECT REMAINS
- KTVX, USA - December 13, 2006 - Brent Hunsaker - www.abc4.com
- Even though Polygamist Prophet Warren Jeffs remains behind
bars awaiting the continuation of his preliminary hearing later
this week, his grip on the people in the polygamist communities
of Colorado City, Arizona and Hildale, Utah remains undiminished.
- Last week the organization that certifies police officers
in Arizona released a letter from Marshall Fred Barlow - the
top cop in both towns. Marshal Barlow asked for advice on a pending
hire, and their pledged his support for Jeffs. He wrote, I
follow the directives that you have sent to me
I have felt
a unity between the peace officers. They have all stated to me
their desire to follow the directives. I do know that I and all
of the other officers have expressed our desire to stand with
you. The letter was written in October 2005 when Warren
Jeffs was a federal fugitive.
- Now, the town councils of both Hildale and Colorado City
are apparently stonewalling efforts to get approval for a survey
of UEP property. UEP, or United Effort Plan, is a trust that
controls just about all of the land in the twin towns. The surveys
are necessary to again allow the buying and selling of UEP property.
Warren Jeffs used to control the UEP and its estimated $110 million
dollars in assets. Those who have left or been kicked out by
Jeffs say the UEP was just one of the vehicles he used to exercise
absolute control over the lives of his people. For whole story:

- LATTER-DAY SAINTS: A LOOK AT THE MORMON CHURCH
- AP, via the Boston Herald, USA - December 13, 2006 - news.bostonherald.com
The expected presidential candidacy of Massachusetts Gov. Mitt
Romney has brought new attention to The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-day Saints since Romney would be the first Mormon president.
The LDS church is one of the fastest-growing religions in the
world, due in part to its unparalleled lay volunteerism - for
missionary work, humanitarian projects and church leadership.
But Latter-day Saints say they are badly misunderstood. Here,
in question-and-answer form, is a look at the Mormon church:
- Q: How did the church get its start?
- A: Joseph Smith, considered a prophet by Mormons, said that
in 1827 an angel gave him golden plates inscribed in an unknown
language that were buried near Palmyra, N.Y. He said the plates
told the history of ancient ancestors of American Indians, who
migrated to the New World from Israel and were visited by Jesus.
Smith said God miraculously empowered him to understand the language
and dictate the sacred Book of Mormon. The angel then retrieved
- Q: How did church headquarters end up in Salt Lake City?
- A: Smith and early Mormons were attacked as heretics and
were hounded out of New York, Ohio and Missouri. Smith was tarred
and feathered and jailed, then murdered in 1844 by a mob in Illinois.
The persecuted Mormons eventually settled in what became the
state of Utah.
- Q: How big is the church?
- A: The church lists membership at 12.6 million worldwide,
with more than half living outside the U.S. The church does not
release reports on its finances, but is believed to have billions
of dollars in assets. Full questionnaire:
- CHARLIE ROSE INTERVIEWS RICK WARREN
- THE UPCOMING GREAT DECEPTION
- Stephen Yulish - The Apostle Paul wrote to the Church at
Ephesus that Our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world
forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness
in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12). He also wrote
to the Church at Corinth, For though we walk in the flesh,
we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our
warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction
of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty
thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking
every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians
10:3). What rulers, what powers, what world forces, what fortresses,
what speculations, what lofty things, what spiritual forces of
wickedness in heavenly places, are we warring against? It is
my firm belief that Satan and all his demonic hordes are preparing
to unleash one the greatest deceptions on mankind that ever has
been undertaken. This upcoming deception and wickedness in the
heavenly places will be as a result of Satans signs and
false wonders for those who will perish because they did not
receive the love of the truth so as to saved ( 2Thess. 2:9-10).
God will send on them a deluding spirit so that they will believe
what is false and will be judged (2Thess. 2:11). For the whole

- Southeas Missourian, USA - December 14, 2006 - TJ Greaney
- www.semissourian.com All right, no cheating. This is a pop
quiz. Who or what is Hezbollah? What branch of the Islamic faith
is followed by most of those in al-Qaida? What is the difference
between Sunnis and Shiites? OK, pencils down. If you failed this
test, youre in good company. Last week, Rep. Silvestre
Reyes, D-Texas, was asked similar questions by a reporter for
Congressional Quarterly magazine. He failed. Al-Qaida,
they have both, Reyes said in response to whether al-Qaida
is made up mostly of Sunni or Shiite Muslims. Predominantly
probably Shiite. In fact, al-Qaida is a Sunni organization
that considers the Shiite sect to be heretical. This is part
of the reason some believe they are fueling the insurgency in
Iraq, which is 65 percent Shiite and has a majority Shiite government.
When asked the same question about the Lebanese terrorist organization
Hezbollah, Reyes laughed and complained about answering such
tough questions early in the morning.
- Reyes has been chosen by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.,
as the next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. The
position is one of the most important in Congress, charged with
scrutinizing the information the president uses to make anti-terror
or war decisions. Reyes fumble highlights what many people
do and dont know about Islam. In A.D. 632, the prophet
Mohammed, the founder of Islam, died, leaving open the question
of who would lead the religion. In the decades that followed,
Shia began to believe only direct descendants of Mohammed should
lead the religion. Sunnis did not care as much about the lineage
and believed the leader or caliph should be elected
democratically. For whole story: http://www.cephas-library.com/islam_differences_create_confusion_for_many.html
- HOW TO BE A POPULAR PREACHER TODAY
- Church News Notes, December 8, 2006 - Joel Osteen, pastor
of America's largest church, is a living example of how to be
a popular preacher in this apostate age. The key is to preach
a positive message that doesn't deal plainly with sin, repentance,
and judgment. About 38,000 people attend his Sunday services
in Houston, and his sermons are broadcast in more than 200 markets
in the United States as well as on major networks in Canada,
Europe, Australia, Asia, and the Middle East. He fills massive
arenas throughout America, and his 2004 book Your Best Life Now
has sold 4 million copies. Recently he was in Tampa, Florida,
and the St. Petersburg Times ran a front-page report on the meetings
entitled "God's Cheerleader." There is no way that
a major secular newspaper in America today would run such an
affirmative report on a preacher who is faithful to the Word
of God. Notice how Osteen's message is described: "Osteen's
easy-going, all-inclusive gospel has made him a spiritual rock
star. He's unrelentingly positive, more Norman Vincent Peale
than Pat Robertson. His deliberately nonjudgmental sermons ...
have made him into a bestselling author who is even popular among
agnostics and atheists. Osteen's positive messages--recent sermon
topics include 'Having Confidence in Yourself' and 'Stop Listening
to the Accusing Voices'--have helped make him a religious man.
He touts a loving God. There is no condemnation. No talk of judgment
or damnation" ("God's Cheerleader," St. Petersburg
Times, Nov. 26, 2006, p. 10A). Osteen is no doubt sincere in
what he is doing, but he is sincerely and terribly wrong. The
Lord Jesus Christ was a fire and brimstone preacher, and every
God-ordained preacher is commanded to preach the Word with reproof,
rebuke, and exhortation" (2 Timothy 4:2). The Scriptures
warn that many will turn away their ears from the truth in the
last days and after their own lusts will heap to themselves teachers,
having itching ears (2 Timothy 4:3-4). Sadly, that is exactly
what America's favorite pastor is doing. He is scratching the
itching ears of those who have rejected the plain teaching of
the Bible and desire, instead, a new type of Christianity, one
with a smiley face, one that allows them to live pretty much
as they please, to follow their own lusts, and still feel that
they are right with God. Significantly, Osteen's nickname is
the "smiling preacher."
- CATHOLICS AND MUSLIMS TOGETHER
- Church News Notes, December 8, 2006 - For the second time
in five years a pope has attended worship in an Islamic mosque.
On November 30, 2006, Benedict XVI prayed with Muslims in the
Blue Mosque in Turkey. The pope stood with Muslims facing toward
Mecca and prayed silently. In 2001 John Paul II visited a mosque
in Syria. Following Benedict's visit to the Blue Mosque, the
head Islamic mufti in Istanbul, Mustafa Carici, said there is
"a spring ahead for this world." The peace sought by
the pope is a false one. There will be no peace in this wicked
world until Jesus Christ, the Price of Peace, sits on the throne
of the world, and that will not happen until after the fierce
judgments of the Day of the Lord. Pope Benedict also used the
visit to Turkey to further unity between Roman Catholicism and
Greek Orthodoxy. After visiting the Hagia Sophia, which has been
an Orthodox church as well as a Muslim mosque, the Pope wrote:
"In our diversity, we find ourselves before faith in the
one God." Unity in religious diversity is not the mark of
the New Testament Christian faith; it is the mark of the great
whore of Revelation. http://www.wayoflife.org

- YOGA FOR KIDS ON THE RISE
- Yoga for kids is on the rise, and if your child attends public
school, you may want to check to see if they are teaching him
or her yoga. A program called YogaEd provides yoga classes under
the heading of "health/wellness" programs for schools.
Those programs take place in several states including California,
Colorado, New York, Washington and Washington, DC.
- Parents whose kids are in Christian schools may need to be
concerned too. More and more churches and Christian organizations
are opening their doors to the practice of Yoga. And the biggest
Christian publisher, Thomas Nelson, published a book titled Yoga
for Christians earlier this year. It's just a matter of time
before kids in Christian schools will be learning Yoga and eventually
the art of meditation.
- It is tragic to know that countless public school children
are being taught eastern mysticism and will learn how to say
"Namaste (the god in me greets the god in you) before they
learn that they can have a relationship with God through Jesus
Christ without going into altered states through meditation.
And it is equally tragic that much of Christendom will not be
able to help them because they are doing the same practices through
their spiritual formation programs in their churches. More Yoga

- ATM TITHING
- Church News Notes, December 15, 2006 - A new company has
begin placing ATM-style tithing machines in churches in America
and expects to have 15 in place by the end of the year. They
are Automatic Tithe Machines. SecureGive was formed by Church
of God pastor Marty Baker who found that tithing increased when
he placed a tithing machine outside of his church in Augusta,
Georgia, in 2005. His church has seen an 18% jump in offerings.
The first time that I saw this was at City Harvest Church in
Singapore. They had three ATM-style tithing machines in place
in the lobby area when I visited there in February 2003. There
is nothing wrong with this, of course. It is simply a reflection
of this electronic age. We study the Bible on computers and send
out prayer letters by e-mail and record sermons on mp3s, so we
might as well pay tithes via ATM. http://www.wayoflife.org
- PELVIC THRUST DANCE AT SADDLEBACK CHURCH
- Church News Notes, December 15, 2006 - The following is from
the Extreme Theology website for December 9, 2006: "This
is a video of a Saddleback Worship Concert. There are teenage
girls doing dance moves that include Pelvic Thrusts. Is this
really worship to the one true God of the Bible or is this worship
to one of those pagan sex gods? You be the judge? You can go
to the original YouTube post at http://youtube.com/watch?v=Gq_heSAajS0.
After seeing this, Is there any wonder why Saddleback's worship
is so appealing and attractive to unbelievers? Saddleback is
offering jiggly-dancing and sexual stimulation at church and
calling it worship. 'Even so every good tree bringeth forth good
fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree
cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring
forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit
is hewn down, and cast into the fire' (Matthew 7:17-19)."
CONCLUDING NOTE FROM BRO. CLOUD: Recently a Southern Baptist
state association made a ruling that churches supporting homosexuality
are not welcome. That is commendable, as far as it goes, but
why is immoral dancing in the name of worshipping a holy God
any less wicked than same-sex relations? Where is the Southern
Baptist Convention when it comes to such things? The silence
is deafening. http://www.wayoflife.org

- ORGANIZED CHRISTIANITY
- "The World's Greatest Prostitution (Cover-up) - his
is the most subtle, engulfing, suffocating, living and breathing
organism ever conceived that has interwoven and intertwined throughout
man?s history and conscience; purposely 'designed' to deceive
every man, woman and child on planet Earth." by Mike Luckham
- John Daniel, author of the book: The Grand Design Exposed
has written a 22-page booklet entitled "Organized Christianity's
Prostitution Cover-up". This booklet lays bare the facts:
- · How the organized 'Christian' Church 'cut a deal'
with the Roman Emperor Constantine, and thus became the official
State religion of the Roman Empire;
- · How this organized Church (i.e., the Roman Catholic
Church) assumed the 'mantle' of the Roman Pontifex Maximus when
the Roman Empire fell, and began to persecute true Christians,
wiping out hundreds and hundreds of thousands of them through
the 'Holy Inquisition', crusades, and every genocide ever made
- · How this organized Church will soon reach the pinnacles
or power she once held in Europe when her popes ruled over kings,
and will once again launch yet another episode of murdering any
and all who dare question her 'right' to rule this planet!
- This booklet shows the reader how the early Christians were
persecuted by the pagan Roman emperors until Emperor Constantine
and Bishop Eusebius obviously 'cut a deal' in order to make 'Organized
Christianity' (i.e., Roman Catholicism) the State religion. The
few true Christians who survived the various anti-Christian persecutions
had gone 'underground' or had fled to mountains and wilderness
areas. This left a paganized 'Christian' organization, now called
Roman Catholicism, as a 'pretender' claiming to be the one, true
Church of Jesus Christ,. And when the Roman Empire fell, the
Roman Catholic Church moved into the power vacuum, and basically
assumed all the titles and power of the Roman Emperor, the Pontifex
Maximus! As John Daniel (www.vaticandesignedexposed.com) tells
us in this informative booklet:
- "But the 'Christian' Roman popes did more than just
'Hi-Jack' the Roman Emperor's Imperial titles. They also imbued
the Roman Emperor's 'spirit' of power absolute into the very
depths of their being and soul. The idea of stamping out all
controversy and division, stamping out all thought, by imposing
'unquestioned ' 'ONE?' dogmatic creed upon all, was carried into
practice on an unprecedented scale.
- 'So it is not surprising, when the 'Christian' Roman popes
ruled full sway during the medieval years, to read accounts of
inhuman cruelties, atrocities, and abominations during the crusades,
and the methodical butchering, breaking, and mutilating of human
bodies done in the torture chambers of the [so-called 'Holy']
- The Roman Catholic Church ruled the European world for 1260
years with an iron fist. During those years the Holy Word of
God, the Bible, was a forbidden book.

her 'Great Power' and her Inquisitional ways. Just look around
you! How is she going to accomplish this? To find out, you can

- 7 VIRGINIA PARISHES VOTE TO QUIT US EPISCOPAL CHURCH
The Washington Post, via The Boston Globe, USA - December 18,
2006 - Bill Turque - www.boston.com
WASHINGTON At least seven Virginia Episcopal parishes,
opposed to the consecration of a gay bishop and the blessing
of same-sex unions, have voted overwhelmingly to break from the
US church in a dramatic demonstration of widening rifts within
the denomination. Two of the congregations are among the states
largest and most historic: Truro Church in Fairfax City and the
Falls Church in Falls Church, which have roots in the 1700s.
- Their leaders have been in the vanguard of a national effort
to establish a conservative alternative to the Episcopal Church,
the US wing of the 77 million-member worldwide Anglican Communion.
The result of the weeklong vote, announced yesterday, sets up
the possibility of a lengthy ecclesiastical and legal battle
for property worth tens of millions of dollars. Buildings and
land at Truro and the Falls Church are valued at about $25 million,
according to Fairfax County records. The votes are fresh evidence
of an increasingly bitter split within the US Episcopal Church.
Seven of its 111 dioceses have rejected the authority of Presiding
US Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, installed in November as
the first woman to head an Anglican church. Schori supports V.
Gene Robinson, a gay man elected bishop of New Hampshire in 2003.
I grew up in the Episcopal Church. I hope I dont
cry when I talk about this, said a shaken Katrina Wagner,
37, an accountant and member of Truros vestry, after the
congregations vote was announced. But the issue is:
Are we going to follow Scripture? The full story:
