The Great Apostasy

The great falling away and the Ecumenical movement:

Paul's reference to the man of sin in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


So before Jesus comes back we see that we are waiting for a great falling away and the man of sin will be revealed to us. It also calls him the son of perdition. The son of perdition is used only 2 times in the Bible. We see it once in this verse then once again concerning Judas. Judas was the man who had betrayed Jesus with a kiss. Judas had presented himself as one of them in order to betray him. So this system will also present itself as such and betray in much the same way. It will outwardly pretend to be serving him but in secret working with his enemies.

Have we found such a power position where we have a man showing himself that he is God?

A man showing himself that he is God

"We hold upon this Earth the place of God Almighty."
Source: Pope Leo XIII "The great Encyclical Letters" of Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Letter, June 20, 1894

"The Church of Rome is one monarchy over all the kingdoms of the earth, and is, among temporal bodies, as the mind or the soul of the body of man, or as God in the world. Therefore the Church of Rome must not only have the spiritual power, but also the supreme temporal power."
Source: Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII 1879

"Given in Rome from our palace, the 10th of February, 1817, the XIV jurisdiction of the most holy Pontiff and Father in Christ, and our Lord our 'god' the Pope, Leo XII ..."

The Ecumenical movement:

Since the times of the reformation Rome has long sought to bring the protestant churches back to mama. The beginning of this ecumenical movement can be seen in 1948. The World Council of Churches or (WCC) is formed. It embraced most of the Protestant Churches but Excluded the Orthodox and Catholic churches.

1948 World Council of Churches It embraced most of the Protestant Churches but Excluded the Orthodox and Catholic churches.
1958 WCC and IMC join WCC and the International Missionary Council or IMC join together.
1961 Orthodox and Pentecostals The Orthodox and Pentecostals were also represented at the meeting of the council.
1962 Vatican II Council Pope John XXIII calls the Vatican II Council. Not a single doctrinal position of the Catholic Church was revoked, but Salvation is no longer restricted to Roman Catholics but to all who live according to their conscience.

We can see now that the Protestants are no longer protesting and there has been a great falling away. The ecumenical protestant churches now calling themselves "the separated brethren" and wish to go back to mama. If your institution is involved in the ecumenical movements then remember the verse from the introduction of this book.
Revelation 18:4 … Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins...
I say this because you would become subject to the Bishop of Rome who is subject to Lucifer. Many Churches are involved with ecumenism so this is a difficult subject for some people.

Example:

The Alpha course is an evangelistic initiative begun by Holy Trinity Brompton perhaps better known now for its promotion of the so called Toronto Blessing in which New Age experiential mysticism predominates. The kind of "Mystical Christianity" in which are "manifestations" of uncontrollable laughter, mayhem, shaking, animal noises, vomiting, or any of the other demonic disorder like this. The Alpha course is rooted in the heretical charismatic movement. Who promotes this? George Carey, the Archbishop of Canterbury and David Hope, the Archbishop of York and of course super evangelist and Roman Catholic ecumenical pied piper Billy Graham!


Alpha news bragged:
"Seven hundred of the world’s leading evangelists attending Billy Graham's major conference 'Amsterdam 2000' in August attended official events where major presentations of the Alpha Course were given top billing..."

Many other examples could be shown (too many) and I may write a separate book called "The Church of Laodicea". Anyway, basically this final Church just sucks to high heaven. There is nothing good about it and needs to be completely thrown out of heaven. What they need to be doing is starting at Genesis exposit it's meaning word for word until they end reading at Revelation. When they get finished at Revelation then start again at Genesis.

This Church goes on into the kingdom but those who are lukewarm are spit out. This Church will be shaken up.
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire... This Church is doing "Church things" but they are devoid of Christ. He is on the outside of his own Church knocking on the door!
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 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.

Laodicea (1844 to Present)
    Laodicea means Nation of Judgment (1844 to Present)
  • The church with the lukewarm faith (Rev. 3:16).
  • 11 Behold, I stand at the door, ... He is Here!
  • Church of the Apostasy
  • Given no accommodation and thrown out

Notice here that the opening of the door is done on an individual person basis. This is the only way to get to know him. It is personal and is not done through any particular Church. It may be better for the individual person to gather with a small group type meet-up of likeminded people in a home or restaurant and just study on their own.
