When the Eagles Gather

Cedric Fisher – February 26, 2019

I have no doubt that the temporal realm is in its final years before the Second Coming of Christ. There are indications that the world system is prepared for the Antichrist’s revealing. Concurrently, much is occurring and changing in the religious sector that indicates the emergence of the False Prophet. In order to clearly portray what is getting ready to occur it is helpful to present the general state of Christianity.

The State of Christianity
Christianity, the religion, has substantially come under the spells of diabolical and clever users and abusers. Subsequently, the lack of biblical character disqualifies it as a universal body of people devoted to following Christ. Reduced to a mere title symbolizing what’s left of the 2000-year-old religion, it is in imminent danger of collapsing from the weight of its apostasy. As a grass-covered layer of topsoil over a massive sinkhole, shallow roots are all that hold its facade together. Why are professing Christians so unaware of the impending catastrophe? Why are the ones who are aware so disinterested? Their minds are closed by apathy, and their ears and eyes are dull with denial.

It appears most professing Christians love religion more than a relationship with God, and they love doctrines more than truth. Furthermore, the flames of their love became dying embers before the heretics and hirelings arrived. Their present complacency, apathy, and lethargy sustain heretics and hirelings in their positions. Consequently, numerous branches of heresy flow like dirty water from a broken pipe. The sum of it all has produced an unbridled spirit in professing Christians that has spread like a virus.

A Broken Moral Compass
Consequently, the spiritual atmosphere is turning loathsome. Discarding moral restraints unleashed scores of ministers to commit sexual sins, including sex crimes against children, and other great wickedness. For every vile incident revealed, it is likely many more episodes of that same unrestrained evil remain hidden. Mark my words—the revelations about the profusion of sexual abuse, pedophilia, adultery, pornography, and other wickedness in churches and by ministers, will increase.

According to a recent Barna report, “Most pastors (57%) and youth pastors (64%) admit they have struggled with porn, either currently or in the past.” Approximately 2/3 of professing Christian men view porn. Furthermore, Barna reported. “Overall, 21 percent of youth pastors and 14 percent of pastors admit they currently struggle with using porn.”

It is indicative that the moral compass guiding Christians for eons is broken. However, very few high profile leaders are risking their reputations and positions to stand against the apostasy. They are very busy trying to remain relevant. Relevancy in a time of apostasy is becoming a facilitator of it. Woe to the sinfully deaf and dumb condition of the body of Christianity! Who can unstop its ears, heal its scaly eyes, and restore its dead compassion?

Imminent Implosion
The failure to stem the invasion of wickedness in Christianity is symptomatic of a great, spiritual, anemia. How can Christianity not implode? I must add that putting great effort behind a political leader to ensure security from secular danger will not prevent Christianity from imploding. Political security is no better than the thick cloud of apathy covering a great valley of prayerless, non-committed, professing Christians. The piercing and alarming truth is that Christianity is being prepared to collapse in confusion and fear-driven acquiescence to the False Prophet. It will produce little or no opposition on the day that the Man of Sin arrives. Continue reading

China: a portent of imminent persecution

This article is the first of two articles that may be too severe for some professing Christians to read. It may actually not be severe enough. The fact is that many individuals have become so accustomed to the shadows and darkness that this sliver of light appears as a blinding spotlight. Many professing Christians live in low or no light. Other ones, and perhaps the majority, are for one reason or another hiding under a security blanket of apathy. Thus, I wish that it were a spotlight that exposed the truth so clearly that it could not be ignored.

It does absolutely no good to warn them if they will not hear. It does not profit them if the Holy Spirit reveals the signs if they refuse to see. Instead, they convinced themselves that they are okay and safe and adequately prepared to zoom to heaven before they suffer a scratch from the enemy. The problem with that theory is that well over half of the world’s Christians are under persecution. For thousands of them, there are no acts of persecution in the Tribulation Period that could be worse. One cannot more burned alive than burned alive. One cannot be beheaded more than beheaded. One cannot be deader than dead.

So either one believes and can find clear validation in the Bible that America Christians will escape persecution while the rest of the Body of Christ is raped, beaten, starved, tortured, imprisoned, burned alive, beheaded, hung, made homeless and without a country, et cetera, or he or she had better accept the truth. It is really a matter of choice between delusion and truth. Continue reading

What is the Great Falling Away?

“Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of [b]sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
2 Thessalonians 2:1-4

The great falling away (Greek: apostasia) is the great and final apostasy. One who falls away (apostatizes) has defected from faith in God. He or she is no longer is his or her spiritual position. Such a individual is no longer a child of God. His or her name has been blotted out of the Book of Life. They have returned to wallowing in the mire.

There is no indication in God’s word that they will recover from the great and final apostasy. For what can God do more than He has already done? Never has a generation of people had more given to them by God than these last days generations. They have regarded God’s gifts, including the Holy Spirit, as toys, and they played the harlot with demon spirits. They only sought self aggrandizement, not God’s will.

Furthermore, they despise the watchmen and truth speakers who warn them. No doubt they will, as their forefathers did, kill them and the prophets.

There is only one gift left that God can give them that they will accept without it being forced upon them. In fact they eagerly await that gift and have been preparing themselves for it with books, videos, conferences, in every church meeting, with prophecies, revelations, trips to “heaven”, face to face meetings with “Jesus”, music, Bible translations, and even weeping statues.

They need not do anything more because God has already given some of them that last gift. it is coming by special delivery to everyone that falls away. They need not to approve of more perverse people in ministry and leadership positions. They need not write or support any more books, such as “The Shack”, “Jesus Calling”, “The Circle Maker”, “Purpose Driven Church“, et cetera. There is no need to complete Chrislam or ecumenism with the Roman Catholic Church, but they will. They need not have more conferences such as “IF:Gathering”, “Bethel Conference”, “Catalyst Conference”, “Encounter: Jesus Culture”, “IHOP Conference”, et cetera.”

If the reader of this article has ceased following Christ to follow an individual, you are asking for that gift as well. You have decided that the leading of the Holy Spirit was too difficult of a relationship to develop. You agreed with the purveyors of heresy that they are God’s special envoys because they were more exciting and outlandish. You agree that a revelation from those arrogant ones that defend themselves with boasts and threats is more authoritative than God’s word. Finally, you agreed that those individuals should be made extremely wealthy for their delivery services.

To all of the ones mentioned in this article your gift has been delivered or is on its way. Are you excited? It’s directly from God just as you like it. It was designed especially for you. You’ve been presenting yourself as special, now it is time to prove that you are.

Your gift, the only gift left that God can give you, what you have been waiting, working, and wishing for. It is the end of the large rainbow created by the New Apostolic Reformation, Kenneth Copeland and the Prosperity Movement, The Charismatic Movement, and the huge number of other devouring locusts swarming on the souls of deceived professing Christians. Here it is!
