- "And you hath he quickened, who
were dead in trespasses and sins; Wherein in time past ye walked
according to the course of this world, according to the prince
of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the
children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our conversation
in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires
of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children
of wrath, even as others.
- But God, who is rich
in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when
we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,
(by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and
made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That
in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his
grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by
grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
- For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before
ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that
ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision
by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by
hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens
from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants
of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But
now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh
by the blood of Christ." Ephesians
- We believe every word in the KJV Bible and believe it is
the Word of God and that Jesus is the Christ, God Himself, who
spilled His blood on the cross for our sins and rose again to
prepare a place for those who repent and accept 'His' righteousness
as their righteousness. They are those who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Savior, Jews first and then Gentiles. "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any
man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him,
and will sup with him, and he with me." We

- 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 KJV 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
and today's church doesn't resemble what Jesus taught. The Word
of God has undergone many changes to fit the progressive modes.
Many new Bible tranlations have brought confusion. 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, the so called democratizing what is left of the world.
This is a deception since the underlying new world global government
is developed by implementing sustainable development. The
Bible prophesies that there will be ten kings (ten horns), each
king (horn) will receive a region of the world as a reward for
work well done for the Antichrist. This is the reason for the
present development of NAU (The North American Union) as well
as the war in the Middle East. It again proves that we are moving
to closure of the times of the Gentiles prophesied in the Bible.
The end result will not be Democracy but a form of Fascist Communism
(Public/Private Corporations enslaving mankind).
- The third section compliments End Time
teachings because Israel is the time piece of the Biblical Prophecy.
1948 was the beginning of the figtree representing Israel, coming
back to life. Israel was allowed to return to its land. Israel
is the rock upon which the world stumbles and crumbles. We watch
and visit Israel for signs which point to the 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 newsletters 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,

and harmless as doves.

Newsletter reminds us that the hour is very late, and we need
to be ready for the Lords coming. Are you sure that
you are born again? Are you living for Christ?
that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out
of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore
cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the
armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not
in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness,
not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ,
and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof"

- THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD SCIENTISTS FIND 200
SEXTILLION MORE STARS IN THE SKY
- Published December 01, 2010 - Associated Press - Update:
An editors' note appears at the bottom of this story. The night
sky may be a lot starrier than we thought. A study suggests the
universe could have triple the number of stars scientists previously
calculated. For those of you counting at home, the new estimate
is 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. That's 300 sextillion. The
study questions a key assumption that astronomers often use:
that most galaxies have the same properties as our Milky Way.
And that's creating a bit of a stink among astronomers who want
a more orderly cosmos. It's one of two studies being published
online Wednesday in the journal Nature that focus on red dwarf
stars, the most common stars in the universe. The study that
offers the new estimate on stars is led by a Yale University
astronomer. He calculates that there are far more red dwarfs
than previously thought, and that inflates the total star count.
- ARK OF THE COVENANT & THE REBUILT JEWISH TEMPLE
- THE SEVEN HILLS OF JERUSALEM
- By Ernest L. Martin, Ph.D., 2000 Reformatted by David Sielaff
It was common custom in the centuries before Christ for people
in the Roman world to refer to the City of Rome itself as the
"City of Seven Hills." The references are numerous
and consistent. And indeed, when Romulus and Remus wanted to
build a city in the area of the Tibur River (just inland from
the coast to afford a greater protection for the city from sea
pirates or from the naval warfare of hostile powers), it was
divinely selected, in Roman parlance, that the city had to be
on "seven hills." The number "seven" was
a universal symbol that signified "completion" or "perfection,"
and the ancients who founded Rome wanted people to know that
this particular city was destined to have a world influence and
fame, and that it was no ordinary city that was being constructed
in the 8th century BC. Continued: http://www.askelm.com/prophecy/p000201.htm

- SOUND OF SILENCE
- UNCOVERING THE "COVERING DOCTRINE"
- -by Cheryl MacGrath. - In a number of the denominations I've
been involved in, including at leadership level, a "doctrine
of covering" was taught and accepted. And for many, many
years, I never questioned this teaching. After all, everyone
believed it; the leadership upheld it, so it must be right, right?
It is only as the Holy Spirit has impressed me to study the scriptures
more deeply on this teaching that I've had to come to terms with
the fact that He NEVER originated it! In His infinite grace,
He chose to wait patiently for a time when the Spirit of Truth
would become dearer to me than the traditions of men.
- The teaching on "covering" goes like this. Everyone
needs to be accountable to someone who is spiritually his or
her superior. This someone may be your cell group leader, the
head of a church department or your senior pastor etc. In turn,
these leaders receive covering from someone further up the line,
for instance a denominational leader or a "recognised"
apostle. The necessity for this covering is based on the belief
that believers need to be safeguarded from falling into error
and/or sin. So covering is provided by those who are more spiritual
than we to protect us from such error. At the top of this pyramid
of covering there is quite often a well-known and recognised
"name" but the chances of meeting or having any kind
of relationship with that person if you are at the bottom of
the pyramid are fairly slim. Currently, there are several networks
offering this kind of covering to those in some form of church
leadership or ministry, more often than not for an annual fee.
The annual fee usually provides for the running of the network,
and conferences where you can fellowship with others under your
particular brand of covering. You may also be denied entrance
from one of these networks because you don't have the appropriate
- One of the strange things about this "covering"
teaching is that rarely is anyone asked about their spiritual
covering, until they step outside their particular church, denomination
or network. However, the minute a believer shows signs of having
something important to share with the wider Body of Christ, suddenly
all and sundry are interested primarily in that one important
question: "Who are you covered by?" It all sounds pretty
reasonable except for one problem - it's NOT FOUND in scripture.
In fact, the early church was taught to rely on the inner anointing
to discern the spiritual source of potential ministers. (1 John
2:20; 1 John 4:1)
- So, where did this idea originate that believers need to
be "covered" in order to serve God and minister within
Christ's Body? Are you, like many others, living your Christian
life under the shadow of this fear that without "covering"
you dare not minister, preach, pray or do a myriad of other things
you're called to do by the Spirit of God, because you will somehow
be ministering without protection?

- THE NEXT 'PRAYER OF JABEZ'?
- A little book with a powerful Bible study and application
Posted: November 29, 2010 - 10:20 pm Eastern - WorldNetDaily
Everyone loves a good Bible study. "The Prayer of Jabez,"
inspired by 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 and written by Bruce Wilkerson
in 2000, sold 9 million copies with a simple message of how to
live a blessed life. Now comes another little book about an equally
obscure character of faith known as Jonadab from the books of
2 Kings and Jeremiah one that makes a great Christmas
gift or stocking stuffer. It's called "The Promise of Jonadab:
Building a Christian Family Legacy in a Time of Cultural Decline,"
and some will find it far more substantive and timely in its
application. Written by E. Ray and Gail Pinckney Moore, it's
the story of one family living in a time of cultural and religious
collapse and how its members struggle to maintain faith in their
time and throughout future generations. The Moores have been
married for 40 years and are known as pioneers in the homeschooling
movement and Christian education. Interweaving what is known
about Jonadab and his progeny from the Bible with contemporary
stories of modern-life Jonadabs people who have applied
the same principles in their own lives, "The Promise of
Jonadab" offers a fast-paced read and a worthy Bible study
with obvious applications to life in a time when many Christians
feel besieged by moral and cultural collapse. Continued: http://www.wnd.com/?pageId=234253
- GROUNDBREAKING REPORT REVEALS AMERICANS PLAYING WITH END
OF CIVILIZATION "..
- From the time of this nation's founding up until the current
era, most Americans held the Bible to be their ultimate guidebook
and took very seriously the clear biblical teachings of people
like the Apostle Paul who warned in Romans 1:18-32 (that's the
passage Obama once publicly ridiculed as an "obscure passage
in Romans") that societies perish when they fall to widespread
sexual immorality. In one of the most supremely politically incorrect
statements of all time, Paul condemns men who, "leaving
the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward
another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving
in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
The further they turn away from God, their "debased minds,"
"vile passions" and other sins become so bad that God
eventually judges them and they are destroyed, writes Paul. "Whoa!"
many might say. "Isn't that just a bunch of superstitious,
judgmental, dead-white-man talk that no one takes seriously anymore?"
Depending on the reader's worldview, such biblical warnings are
an ancient and malevolent fairy tale, or else they resonate as
strongly worded truth. But as this astonishing issue of Whistleblower
carefully documents, the findings of the world's greatest researchers
of cultural decline are strikingly parallel to the Bible's. .."

- TV EVANGELIST: I'M BEING EXTORTED OVER AFFAIR RACHEL ZOLL
- From Associated Press - November 30, 2010 3:14 PM EST - NEW
YORK (AP) A prominent televangelist appeared before a
worldwide television audience Tuesday to admit that he had an
affair with a woman years ago and to allege that three
people had tried to extort millions of dollars from him to stay
quiet about his infidelity. The Rev. Marcus Lamb, who created
DayStar Television Network with his wife Joni, said he and his
wife had healed their marriage and had hoped to keep his adultery
private, but went public because they would not pay extortionists.
The three people demanded $7.5 million, he said. "They're
trying to take our pain and turn it to their gain," said
Lamb, during a one-hour live broadcast with his wife by his side
and supporters surrounding him. "We're not going to take
God's money to keep from being humiliated." A spokesman
for the Lambs, Larry Ross, said they went to authorities with
their allegations, but he said he could not discuss specifics
for fear of interfering with any investigation. He said the extortion
attempt was made within the past few weeks. DayStar, based in
Dallas, airs some of the highest-profile evangelists in the world,
including Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland,
Creflo Dollar and Joyce Meyers. The network says it operates
more than 70 stations in major U.S. television markets and also
broadcasts to more than 200 countries. Joni Lamb described her
husband's affair as "an emotional relationship" with
a woman that became "an improper relationship." When
she learned of his infidelity several years ago, she was devastated
and prayed to the Holy Spirit, who told her, "He's worth
fighting for." Continued: http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=268374

- ALAN HIRSCH: CHURCH MODEL REACHING ONLY 40 PERCENT OF AMERICANS
- This is a problem because 95 percent of American churches
are using a model that even if successful will reach less than
half the population, said Alan Hirsch, an internationally recognized
missiologist and founding director of Forge Mission Training
Network. He spoke at The Genius of And conference,
hosted by Granger Community Church in Granger, Ind. Most churches
target the 40 percent of the population thats within the
cultural distance of the church, he explained. Meanwhile, attractional
churches that have more of an external focus and cultural relevance
will, again, only work for 40 percent of the American population.
And after a few years of coming to Christ, most people are socialized
out of their context and into the context of the church, which
removes them from their sphere of influence. That leaves 60 percent
of the population that the church is not reaching.

commentators had been hasty in their condemnation of the phenomenally
successful series. Despite being beloved by millions of children
and adults alike, the Harry Potter novels have previously attracted
censure from fundamentalist Christians who claim the stories
encourage witchcraft. The congregation of the Christ Community
Church in Alamogordo, New Mexico, even staged a book burning,
claiming "behind that innocent face is the power of satanic
darkness". Continued: http://www.canada.com/health/Theologian+says+Harry+Potter+should+seen+Christ+like+figure/3722258/story.html
- THE CHRISLAM MOVEMENT IN THE APOSTATE CHURCH
- 1 December 2010 - by Bill Wilson - During the weekend of
November 13, many Christian churches across the United States
began a series of sermons aimed at bringing about reconciliation
between Muslims and Christians. These misguided Presbyterian
ministers are trying to focus on a relationship between the Holy
Bible and the Koran they call 'Chrislam.' They are saying that
because the Koran mentions Jesus that there is common ground
with Christianity. To prove their point, they are placing Korans
along side the Holy Bible in their pews. And they are teaching
that you can be a follower of Christ without necessarily believing
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who died for our sins
offering the gift of eternal salvation. Writes commentator Paul
Williams: "The Chrislam movement has gained impetus by statements
from President George W. Bush and that Christians, Jews, and
Muslims all worship the same God and by Rick Warrens reference
to Isa (the Muslim name for Jesus) in his prayer at the inauguration
of President Barack Obama." Williams points out that Jesus
in the Koran is not the only-begotten Son of God nor the Messiah.
Williams says, "He is rather viewed as a prophet who was
appointed by Allah to prepare mankind for the coming of Mohammad.
In the Koran, Williams reminds readers, The victim at Calvary,
Islam teaches, was either Simon of Cyrene or Judas Iscariot."

- WILL YOU G.R.I.N. FOR THE MARK OF THE BEAST? Can a microscopic
tag be implanted in a persons body to track his every movement?
Theres actual discussion about that. You will rule on that
mark my words before your tenure is over. U.S. Sen.
Joseph Biden, asked during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings
on the nomination of John Roberts to be chief justice of the
Supreme Court. Although microchip implantation might be introduced
as a voluntary procedure, in time, there will be pressure to
make it mandatory. A national identification system via microchip
implants could be achieved in two stages. Upon introduction as
a voluntary system, the microchip implantation will appear to
be palatable. After there is a familiarity with the procedure
and a knowledge of its benefits, implantation would be mandatory.

- CURIOSITY GROWS AS NASA SETS EXTRATERRESTRIAL
- Posted by CBS News.com staff November 30, 2010 3:00 PM -
A seemingly routine press release issued by NASA is causing a
serious stir in the blogosphere today with no small amount of
hyperventilation about the possibility that scientists may have
something to say about the discovery of extraterrestrial life.
A press conference, which will be streamed on NASA TV, is set
for Thursday at 2 p.m. EST (1900 GMT) at the agency's headquarters
in Washington, D.C. According to NASA, the event will discuss
"an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for
evidence of extraterrestrial life. Astrobiology is the study
of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in
the universe." NASA has also brought together a geologist,
an oceanographer, a biologist, and an ecologist for a panel discussion
at the press conference. That's got peoples' imaginations running
wild but props to Kottke.org for doing a bit of online sleuthing
into the backgrounds of the invited speakers. They include: Continued:

- BILLBOARDS ANNOUNCE DAY OF CHRIST'S RETURN
- Friday Church News Notes, January 8, 2010, www.wayoflife.org
- The very confused Harold Camping, head of Family Radio Network,
is claiming that Christ will return on May 21, 2011, and billboards
have been set up in nine cities across America announcing the
event. This is the second time that Camping has made a nutty
prediction. In the last decade he predicted that Christ would
return on September 6, 1994, and I don't have to tell you that
it didn't happen. You would think that this world-class blunder
would have ended his Bible teaching career, but in these days
there are enough gullible people out there to keep such heretics
afloat. Camping's heresies are heard on 55 radio stations in
America and via shortwave overseas, and his program is translated
into 48 languages. He believes the church age ended in 1988 and
that God has turned from churches to Family Radio as His means
of preaching the gospel. His followers meet in homes to listen
to Camping's messages. There is no baptism, no Lord's Supper,
no pastor--especially no pastor. In late 2001, Baptist Pastor
Jim Barker of Elmont, New York, was banned from preaching messages
on the topic of the church on WFME radio that broadcasts from
West Orange, New Jersey. Though he had preached on that station
for many years, he was told that he could no longer identify
himself as a pastor or mention the church. Barker warns, "Camping
says sinners can no longer be saved in churches and if Christians
defy him and continue to attend church services their children
cannot be saved." Camping also believes in extreme "sovereign
election," that you can only hope that you have been chosen
and that "a baby can be saved as readily as a mature adult"
(Time Has an End: A Biblical History of the World, 2005, p. 17).
As for life's most important question, "What must I do to
be saved?" Camping says, "You cannot do anything."
Happily, the Bible has already given the answer to that question
and it is "believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt
be saved" (Acts 16:31). As for Jesus' coming, there is no
doubt that He is coming again, but we don't know when. We only
know that it is imminent. We are instructed to expect Him at
any time. There is one thing we do know, though, and that is
that Jesus will NOT return on May 21, 2011, for He said, "Watch
therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the
Son of man cometh" (Matthew 25:13). http://wwww.wayoflife.org
- MASONRY CONSPIRACY AGAINST CHRISTIANITY
- Bob Dole, Jack Kemp, Barry Goldwater, Franklin Roosevelt,
Harry Truman, amongst others, all have one thing in common: as
members of the Masonic Lodge: THEY TOOK AN OATH TO DESTROY CHRISTIANITY!
Their worldwide organization claims to "ordain kings and
shape the destinies of worlds", and that is why powerful
men such as these have joined it. Now, for the first time ever
in their 6,000 year history, someone not a member has discovered
that the evidence that this is their goal is from their own literature!
Ralph Epperson has read 29 of their books from 12 of their top
writers, and he also has found the evidence that their day of
destruction had a definite date: January 1, 2000. Mr. Epperson
will also explain why THIS EVENT DID NOT TAKE PLACE!
- POPE BENEDICT XVI REVEALS TRUE CATHOLIC BELIEFS
- Dan Corner - Many in our day, since Vatican Council II, have
a dangerously wrong view of the beliefs in Roman Catholicism.
These misconceptions, in part, have been recently expelled by
the pope himself. In an article dated July 10, 2007 and found
on MSNBC.com entitled, Pope: Jesus formed only one church,
the head of the Roman Catholic Church system: reasserted the
universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, which says that
Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations
were not true churches. He was, according to the article, correcting
erroneous interpretations of the Second Vatican Council. He also
revived the old Latin Mass. This newly approved document restates
key sections of a 2000 document entitled, Dominus Iesus,
which states that Protestant denominations were not true churches
but merely ecclesial communities and therefore did not have the
means of salvation. The news article said this new
document states: Christ established here on earth
only one church, the document said. The other communities
cannot be called churches in the proper sense
because they do not have apostolic successionthe ability
to trace their bishops back to Christs original apostles.
This declaration by the Pope helps to prove the plan of salvation
in Catholicism is different than in Protestant circles. Here
is our article showing that Peter Was Not A Pope. http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/peter.htm
This whole idea of apostolic succession is, therefore, destroyed
by Biblical truth. http://www.evangelicaloutreach.org/PopeBenedictXVI.htm

- WHY WE CANNOT FOLLOW THE POPE
- Most have no idea as to what is coming SOON! The churches
ALL lie, and NONE teach the truth! This is what their whole false
apparition doctrines teach; they started in 1917 at Fatima and
occured on the 13th CONsecutively for the next 6 months. The
Olso Accords occured on 9/13/93...... which the Vatican REsecured
Jerusalem.... Now, they have secured the Holy Mount! Time draws
close! and the world will swallow this created miracle as an
act of God! (Project Blubeam /Haarp) Their Fatima Crusader clearly
details these CONtinued-ever-more frequent false illusions and
now they are even able to be felt (touched)! They shall use this
dogma/Illusion in setting up the next and last Pope (Jesuit General)
in Jerusalem.... as Earth's final dictator! Ah... but Looky here:
- 1 "Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God,
believe also in me." 2 "In my Father's house are many
mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare
a place for you." 3 "And if I go and prepare a place
for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also." (Not in Jerusalem...
but in the third heaven. also, looky here:
- Hebrews 13:14 "For here have we no continuing city,
but we seek one to come.
- Revelation 21 1 "And I saw a new heaven AND a new earth:
for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and
there was no more sea." 2 "And I John saw the holy
city, "new Jerusalem", coming down from God out of
heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." 3
"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold,
the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them,
and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them,
and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their
eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,
neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are
passed away." 5 "And he that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for
these words are true and faithful." 6 "And he said
unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and
the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain
of the water of life freely." 7 "He that overcometh
shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall
be my son." 8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and
the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers,
and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

- POPE'S CHILD PORN 'NORMAL' CLAIM SPARKS OUTRAGE AMONG VICTIMS
- 21 December 2010 - In his traditional Christmas address yesterday
to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI
also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered
normal by society. "In the 1970s, paedophilia
was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even
with children," the Pope said. "It was maintained "
even within the realm of Catholic theology " that there
is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is
only a better than' and a worse than'. Nothing is
good or bad in itself." The Pope said abuse revelations
in 2010 reached "an unimaginable dimension" which brought
'humiliation' on the Church.
