The Coming World Church

Source: Art Sadlier, Sunday April 18th 2010

Satan’s man, Antichrist will suddenly appear on the world stage with a peace plan. His peace will be a false peace that will help him consolidate his rule over the world.

Rick Warren has a Peace Plan; a plan which endeavours to work with governments, business and all religions to bring peace, prosperity and justice to the world. Warren says governments, business and religions are like a three- legged stool, all three need each other to bring peace to the world. He is really saying, the world’s hope for peace is bound up in a World Church, a World Government and a one World Economic System.  That is an echo of Satan’s program for the last days.  A World Church, called the great whore or harlot in Revelation 17, is a part of that program. We see the Harlot riding on the beast, which is the kingdom of Antichrist; a World Church in a union with a World Government, no doubt in the name of peace and prosperity, but Satan’s program is to bring the world to ultimately worship him! Satan’s program is a worship program.

We see then, Rick Warren, now in the foreground of the campaign to lead the rapidly apostasizing Evangelical / Laodicean Church into a union with the coming Harlot Church.

Rick Warren is giving leadership to another similar program called the ‘Matthew 5 Project’, defined as ‘Evangelicals for Nuclear Reduction.’ This program is also involved in bringing churches and governments together, this time to bring about nuclear disarmament. It sounds good, but it has the ring of similarity with Antichrist’s last days program of bringing peace and safety to the world as he signs a great peace treaty with Israel and a deceived world!  No doubt Antichrist’s program will also involve disarmament, there can be no peace and safety without disarmament.

This Matthew 5 Project, reaches deep into the world of Evangelicalism, a very significant part of the leadership of Evangelicalism has signed on to this project. Hence, we see the Evangelical Church involved in helping to lay the groundwork for the program of Satan for the last days, the union of a World Church and a World Government, which by the way seems to be near at hand.

We are of course in favour of peace and we are commanded to pray for our leaders that we might have peace in our time. We are however, not to be involved in a union with other groups that deny the sound doctrine of the Word of God, nor in a union with governments.

In yet another compromise by evangelicals, we read, “Tony Blair is preparing to launch a ‘faith offensive’ across the United States over the next year, after building up relationships with a network of influential religious leaders and faith organizations.”  This is an attempt by Tony Blair to bring all religious groups together, this is another force driving toward the formation of a World Church, for the purpose of World Peace. The evangelical involvement is revealed when we discover that Rick Warren is one of the leaders of the Advisory Council. We also see other Evangelical leaders involved. Again the very popular Warren is like a pied piper, leading Evangelicals into the arms of the Harlot Church.

The beat goes on, another conference was held March 12-17 in Bethlehem, the aim of this conference is to: “Equip the global church to understand Scripture as it relates to the Palestinian context, and to discuss the theological importance of Peace and Justice in an Evangelical context.” It is quite clear that the goal of this conference is to line up Evangelicals on the side of the Palestinians. The keynote speakers were Lynne Hybels ( wife of Bill Hybels) and Tony Campolo. To make a bad situation even worse many of the leaders of Evangelicalism have signed a document entitled: “Christians Support Bold Action for Holy Land Peace Campaign”.  Some 50 leaders signed this document, including Tony Campolo, Joel Hunter, (president of the NAS) Bill Hybels, Richard Mouw, (president of Fuller) and David Neff, (editor in chief of Christianity Today). This represents a major section of the leadership of Evangelicalism. It is obvious, that the peace that the PA demand is the surrender of Israel. This an attempt to put pressure on Israel to yield to Palestinian demands, which is again a yielding to the program of Satan regarding Israel.

In another development, a new Evangelical film entitled, “With God on Our Side,” is being released this month to rebut pro-Israel Christians and persuade them to champion the Palestinian cause.

Film endorsers include liberal evangelist Tony Campolo and Emergent Church guru Brian McLaren.

The film’s purpose, as its producer explains, is to take American Christians off the metaphorical tourist trail of their pro-Israel stance and instead wade them into embittered Palestinian communities where their views will change. "The film perpetuates a simplistic stereotype alleging that American Evangelicals self-servingly only support Israel because a Jewish presence there is central to their blood thirsty, apocalyptic dreams about the Second Coming.

Evangelicals are switching from God’s program for Israel to end time program of Satan.

When New Evangelicalism was born in the late 1940's, the thrust of the movement was clearly announced as a retreat from separation, and a cessation of contending for the Faith. It was a clear change of attitude, compromise was to be the new approach. The basic idea was an attempt to get the world to like us and maybe then they will listen to our message. We have watched as the years have unfolded, and as compromise has filled the Evangelical / Laodicean Church. Today the apostasy of Evangelicalism has come full bloom.  This deviation from New Testament Christianity is now being revealed for what it really is, it is apostasy and it is obviously headed into a union with the Harlot Church. It will be spewed out into the tribulation period. (Revelation 3:16)

Today, all around the US and Canada there are churches that are clones of this deviant form of Christianity. They follow the philosophy of the user friendly, purpose driven crowd. They are marked by a love for the world and the things of the world. They bring the world into the church, and the music of the world into the church, and whatever else the world wants in the church, they get, just come. Their churches are filled Sunday after Sunday; Jeremiah explains why apostates draw crowds, “The prophets prophesy falsely....and my people love to have it so...”  Jeremiah 5:31.  Paul said the same thing in 2 Timothy 4:3, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.” If you leave us to our own agenda we will come to your church, just make us feel comfortable.

What is the real difference between Philadelphia and Laodicea, between Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism?  God’s Word tells us in no uncertain terms. “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” 1 John 2:15.  “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, (lovers of the world) know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4. “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.” Hebrews 13:13. “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.” Galatians 1:4  “But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” Galatians 6:14  "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord....." 2 Corinthians 6:17.  The church is called out of the world, to be separate from the world. It is a deviant church that seeks to attract the world by being like the world, and drawing the world into its' fellowship. The world has no place in the fellowship of the church, no place in the worship of the church. Men and women of the world need to saved and transformed, coming out of the world and being, "translated into the kingdom of God's dear Son."

My brothers and sisters in Christ, I plead with you, do not be deceived by this departure from genuine New Testament Christianity. This is the great last days deception that Jesus warned about in Matthew 24.  Our Lord said to His people in the Harlot Church,  "Come out of her my people, that be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Revelation 18:4   That was addressed to the Harlot Church in the tribulation period, we are not in the tribulation period, but that Harlot Church is now forming among evangelicals, the command is now valid. I believe that there are many believers, who are deceived, and now in this deviant form of Evangelicalism.
