Who Runs The World? An Investigation Into The Global Scheme Of Things. Completed Report (Revised)

   OR   
  

  





?


This report (having been in transition previously) is now finished as follows.

I have been inspired to write this article after a comment made by Someone on Bob Mitchell's blogsite. Basically they were concerned about the activities of a group called Common Purpose which are growing very rapidly and seem to be behind the scenes pushing for the EU takeover of Britain. I guess I was intrigued because of the name. Another one with "purpose" in the title. Also because I wondered if they were another Vatican (or should we say Illuminati) puppet. All part of the scheme of things?


This report has taken a long time to put together. It comes through much research of all inter-relating information and evidence and the concern  to present  the facts, with the strong desire for truth. I have also compared these findings with prophecies in the Word Of God and the Bible’s general teaching, so that I know what things should or should not be said.


As this is such a serious post I HAVE to be thorough. I also want to write things which Christians can use in their witness and be encouraged, so I have to be careful to edify, ie not just give information (which could be detrimental for believers) but also accompanied by encouraging words.
So who is running the World? My full report.
I will start this report by getting everything into the right perspective from God’s standpoint of the events. We learn about God’s “bird’s eye” view (for want of better expression) of global events from the Bible and from sanctified logic/discernment. Therefore, let us look at the scriptures first. The first one says it all!

Psalms 2:1-3
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand  and the rulers gather together against the LORD  and against his Anointed One. "Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters."

What we see here is that the hidden (behind the scenes) conspiracies ARE IN VAIN!

They may plot etc, but if the Lord intervenes their plans become in vain. God can at a moment destroy the plans of those who are trying to manipulate everything. So, although much of my blogsite (and this post) tries to make sense of the terrible things going on behind the scenes and exposing the GIANT scheme of things,  we should not be worried because everything could fall apart in an instance and if it doesn't .... well Jesus is returning, Hallelujah!


Consider the great empires of the past: The Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Greek, Roman. British. Do any of these still exist? Kingdoms come and Kingdoms go. Then there are religious dominations like the Catholic church during the dark ages. Were the Catholic church in control when the reformation was born? The fact is that (as Jesus said to Pontius Pilate) they are only in authority or have controlling capacities because the Lord has given them it. It could be taken away in an instance. The fact is that the Lord and His true church reign forever! God is in ultimate control, even though He may allow satan to control the Earth (relatively speaking) for a period of time.

The fact is we should not be afraid. Jesus already told us too look up because our redemption is drawing near and that we will suffer tribulation in this world. So, whatever organisation is controlling things behind the scenes, it is the same result =  persecution and tribulation for a short while and then the Glory. Throughout church history the saints have suffered much for their faith and Jesus said this would be so. Why should we be any different? So do not focus so much time on these hidden but emerging things, that you become fearful, but focus on Jesus!

I will now briefly summarise what the apostle John wrote in one of his letters  1 John 2:15-16: 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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 


Being no Greek student, I am informed that the word for "world" is "the cosmos”, ie  world system that is anti Jesus. The lust of the flesh (as Paul wrote in his letters) are to do with the ungodly desires,cravings of the sinful nature. Paul lists these in Galatians 5. The lust of the eyes is to do with coveting things: power and wealth. Lust of the flesh is what is going on inside us, the other is how we are influenced externally. The external pressures we face creates a desire to become one with the world system so that we can succeed in the eyes of a godless world and it’s ungodly world system. This worldly system is governed and controlled (through a godless system) by satan and his invisible army and government (principalities in the heavenlies).

We are told that Christians should not love these things. We are told that our citizenship is in heaven not on the Earth. Jesus said I am not of the world, even as you are not of the world. Jesus said to seek those things which are above, not on the Earth.
John 15:18-20 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

As Christians we are told to “walk in the spirit and not gratify the desires of the flesh” 
The world system (in the hands of the evil one) will always feed the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, so that all the people are caught up in the system. As Christians we must be aware of what the world is about so that we too are not ensnared in it.

Okay, that was my brief exogesis and understanding of that text.

I will now go on elaborate on some of these points by using the revelations of  the scriptures, how current events are not unusual and always been that way throughout human history and why this is so.

Before God created humans, He created angels. They are described as “ministering spirits”. God created multitudes of angels. They are made most beautiful and glorious. One of the archangels (maybe the most glorious) was named Lucifer which means “light bearer”. God called him “son of the morning” Isaiah 14:12.

Ezekiel 28 and Isaiah 14 tell us about the fall of Lucifer and his change of name to satan “adversary”

Isaiah 14:12-16
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.  They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms

Ezekiel 28:14-15
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

Book of Revelation says that satan took a third of the angels with him in his rebellion against God.

So we come to the garden of Eden! God created Adam and Eve perfect. Everything God creates IS perfect (at the beginning).

Satan believed in the lie that he was god and equal with God and in fact it seems that he thought himself to be greater than God. If we look at Book of Revelation it is clear that satan still believes he can ultimately overthrow God, so he is very self absorbed and delusionable.

Jesus said that satan is a thief who comes to kill, steal and destroy.  Satan wants to be worshipped and to rule. Notice (in one of the 3 temptations Jesus faced) he tempts Jesus to worship him. In fact satan uses “the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life” in the 3 temptations. If satan can get Jesus to sin  he wins as it would have meant that (because now no human could ever be saved) he would ultimately have destroyed all human souls.

So it is not surprising (knowing the character of satan) that he wants to destroy what God makes beautiful.  He wants to destroy the highest of God’s creation: humans. So he tempts them to become like God. Satan since then has been seeking a people who believe in the lie that they can become like God. He also empowers them to achieve great things. By creating this delusion in the minds of mankind (that they can become god) he has been able to set up ungodly world systems (through them) in opposition to God’s rule. So you get the “sons of God” those who live their lives in submission to God’s way and those who are not “sons of God”  Those who follow the lie that they don’t need God and work towards a godless society who govern the world through an evil power coming from the evil one. 

We see the evidence of this through historical information on Nimrod, “a mighty man” (as the bible puts it), built a city and a tower designed to oppose God. The purpose was to create a powerful organisation and control the people from the headquarters. It would receive supernatural powers from satan to conquer the world. It was a high tower for astrological, magical practices. Nimrod became a god to the people  and was worshipped as god by the people. He was probably a forerunner or type of the antichrist as he was clearly possessed by satan himself with great powers. As satan has always wanted to be worshipped he received worship through Nimrod and the Babylonic religion which was set up. Please seehttp://www.biblebelievers.com/babylon/00index.htm  for a historical record showing the full outworking of the Babylonic religion and its global world system and its subsequent outworkings today with the New World Order.

Notice, God INTERVENED at the tower of Babel and interfered with this original globalisation intention. The people were scattered and they were unable to communicate with each other any more because of  the confusion of tongues. So satan’s second attempt to totally rule mankind failed again because God intervened.

However, the evil Babylonic religion ideas were already placed into the minds of the people and the latter Babylonic empire would spread these ideas throughout the empire. So (although satan does not have dominion over every human being, he is gradually building up an increasingly evil world system which God has allowed him to be in charge of until God says enough is enough and  then “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever”.

When satan said to Jesus “if you bow down and worship me I will give you the kingdoms for they were handed to me” was he lying? Probably not, because Jesus did not say it was a lie but simply stated that only the true God should be worshipped and Him alone.

The Apostle John said  “We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one”  The word “world” here is “cosmos” which again is the world (global) scheme of things which is governed by those influenced by satan. It has its authority over the peoples of the Earth, so indirectly satan is ruling the people too. So there are two groups of people. The people of God (who have been rescued from that kingdom of darkness into God’s glorious light) and those who are unsaved who are still in darkness influenced by the prince of darkness.

So John is clearly stating that satan is in control over much of the world. But he cannot reign completely (although God has given him a long lead, example seen in book of Job) because God has the ultimate say on what happens on the Earth and God’s people bring light and salt upon the Earth. They can be persecuted but they cannot be soulfully destroyed.

So what I am saying is that satan’s methods of rule have always been the same. Get people to rebel against God, promise them and give them great supernatural powers to rule on Earth, get them to worship him (which are often accompanied with supernatural manifestations), set up governing authorities, strategies etc to globalise and pull everything together. The strategies would use a multitude of secretive groups networked together. These have to be secretive until the purposes are fulfilled so that they are not exposed too soon. These groups are deliberately seen to be unlinked or even opposed, so as to smoke screen society about what is actually going on.

Ephesians 6:12 says it all:  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, butagainst the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places

We are not fighting against human beings when we try to change things in this world. We must understand that human beings are not the source of what is happening. So if we vote one man out of power satan simply replaces with someone else he can control. I know God DOES intervene in seasons by raising “such a man at a time like this” but these times are restricted and usually coincide with a time when a nation (not just a few people) repented  and called out to God (Israel, Ninevah).

Realise that although very interesting to figure everything out, we should be focussing on God’s kingdom not on satan’s. We are not in the darkness but in the light. We are to seek those things which are above and not those things on Earth. We should only concentrate on those things we are able to change. We are to seek first God’s kingdom. If we concern ourselves too much with the global scheme of things we may get entangled up within it and the seed becomes unfruitful.

Our focus then becomes worldly (meaning we are no longer any different from everybody else) as if living on this Earth is important when it is NOT. Jesus said my kingdom is not of this world. His kingdom is entirely different and is ruled with absolute truth in holiness, purity, loveliness, excellence, praiseworthiness and is full of true peace, joy and love. The full culmination of this will be when Jesus reigns on Earth during the one thousand years, but for now His kingdom is in our hearts. We cannot produce that Earthly kingdom by our own means and it cannot happen until Jesus reigns physically here after He removes the kingdom of darkness.
 
Having said that, we are called to be watchman. To watch what is going on and pray. So it is useful to understand what is going on so that we can intercede and comfort one another, using these events as a witnessing tool to save as many as possible. It is also good so that we can alert and warn fellow believers to “come out of Babylon” in these last days. So that we are all prepared for the return of Jesus.

So now to reveal my findings:

What I have noticed is how many organisations (not just Common Purpose) seem to fit together into one GIANT conspiracy.

For example where do you think Rick Warren got his ideas from of the PEACE agenda? Also note he seems to have borrowed the term Common Purpose (founded in 1989) in his movement Purpose Driven in the 1990's.  Did you know that Common Purpose founder Julia Middleton collaborated with New Age queen Anita Roddick in 1988 to work together on creating Common Purpose? Where did New Age originate? How did Emerging Church start? Who are the Bilderbergers? How do they fit in? What about the Illuminati?

I will introduce this section by first quoting from the aforenamed “Somebody” as it illustrates something. And then replying
:
Hi
I had just spent a night looking at Brian Gerrish's videos about Common Purpose.Also I had looked at what other people had to say as well as CP's own website. As a bible believing Christian I have really had my eyes opened over the last few years.

I feel totally let down with the realisation that we have been sold out as a nation to the EU and that really our politicians are just puppets that do the bidding of their masters. I would truly love to find out what motivates these masters. Are they really involved in secret societies and occult practices - it would appear so.

I think that they are engineering this financial crisis, we are seeing, problems with Greece and other EU states, but the UK cant be far behind with more problems coming our way.I feel we are on a countdown to the final events of history. We don’t know the exact sequence but I think we all have that feeling that things are 'hotting up'.

Getting back to Common Purpose, I just feel when you look at the people who have done the courses and the cost to the public purse, the fact that graduates supposedly meet together and operate under Chatham House rules, all this bothers me. I am sick to my stomach of all the political correctness

I believe this person maybe giving too much attention to the World System, as if things could be better than they are. Like many people maybe they are still hoping for a utopia on Earth right now and that this life is something to desire and be enjoyed now. We must remember that this “world” is passing away. The life we experience now is just transient. When Jesus said that we would have life and have it more abundantly He is not referring to enjoying the things of the world or life in THIS realm. He is talking about a transformed life by the power of the Holy Spirit to live a victorious Christian life over sin and comdemnation. We enjoy peace, love and joy in our hearts despite the circumstances of living in this decaying world. We must remind ourselves that things will get worse – not better and so gear ourselves to be ready for it. We are told to rejoice and not complain when things get worse. 

However, this person makes some valid points, which we will now examine:

I started the investigation by researching Common Purpose. I ended up by researching many different organisations which all seemed to be connected in one way or another. I felt I needed to look at the histories behind these organisations and how/why they were founded. I couldn’t help but notice many common traits/ideas.

Basically they all came from 2 camps of history and both of these from Babylon. What we now call “new Age” and through Babylonic Mysteries religion. Both these can be traced way back into the time (and before) of the Babylonic Empire. As already discussed earlier, Babylon was a religious and political empire which influenced the whole world. Although empires and kingdoms have come and gone, the anti god philosophies and religious mysteries have been handed down and followed by subsequent empires.

New Age
The New Age movement is a re-re-re invention of Babylonic philosophies and religion which has been followed throughout the centuries under one name or another. It shapes the thought processes of all areas of life. You find it in Education establishments, the work place, governments, religions, social practices etc.

This old religious system is now called New Age. It was taken from the astrological ideas that the world goes through various ages. They say that the age of pisces (the Christian era) is now over and we are in the “new age” of  aquarius. The Emerging church (a new age Christianity)  call it a paradigm shift. The age of Aquarius is an age of spiritual enlightenment or illumination. It is the "Dawning of the Age of Aquarius". This is to be an Era of Unity, Love and Religious Brotherhood among Humanity. The underlying idea of the New Age is one of ecumenism, a One World Global Society.

From infancy to old age a generation has arisen brainwashed into new age ideas and goals of “self actualisation”. We cannot escape it. It is in our face, everywhere through the media. We are told that we can be whatever we want to be. It aims to move you from a place of  uselessness to becoming a god (they call it self-actualisation)  moving step by step from the point of the realisation of your inner divinity and therefore understanding/knowing the potential of your life  to making the potential an actuality. The whole philosophy focuses on self self self. It is recycled garden of Eden and Tower of Babel stuff.   It is popular because self loves to be tickled. It attracts those who have “itching ears” who want to become powerful.

New Age is very intertwined with many aspects of life. So much so that new age thinking is networked within vast numbers of organisations. Many of these are secret organisations.

There is a link between New Age and Common Purpose. Julia Middleton called upon New Age Entrepeneur Anita Roddick to help her found Common Purpose. Many of her ideas for Common Purpose came from New Age ideas of networking. Her book about Managing beyond your authority is about managing your network of contacts whom are currently outside your immediate area of authority, for the common good of your goals. Ie find people and organisations with the same common purpose who you can influence to achieve the Common Purpose goals. The realisation that you need the co-operation of those externally to get them to work with you to achieve the results.

Common Purpose follow New Age values and therefore support the idea of “oneness” (being one with the universe. Therefore they support the Common Purpose of globalisation and the New World Order. In fact this is the case with all new age groups who are working together to globalise and save the world from say climate change. Therefore they support a one world governance.

I don’t know for sure if Rick Warren was ever trained by Common Purpose. It is clear however that he must have read her book or at least been trained by someone who had, because the way he is operating is using Common Purpose ideas. Did you know that he consulted a new-age guru for ideas on church growth. Maybe this new age guru had been trained in Common Purpose. Certainly Rick is using the networking idea and gathering influential people together under a “common purpose”  for world peace.

As Common Purpose is building up an “army” of tomorrow’s leaders who can all manage beyond their authority, many organisations (including the EU) seem to be hiring graduates from Common Purpose to aid them in the globalisation process.

Babylonic Mysteries Religion and The Catholic Church
Please also read "Why The Catholic Church Is Not A Christian Organisation" found on my blog page: http://watchmanforjesus.blogspot.com/2010/03/why-catholic-church-is-not-christian.html


Babylonic Mysteries religion was taken over by the Vatican system. Ever since the Roman Empire hijacked the Babylonic religion it has tried to maintain its stranglehold over the whole world through the religious system (once the political system fell apart). Although Rome ceased to rule politically it ruled most of the world by a reign of terror by the Catholic Church until the reformation in the 16th Century. Ever since the Reformation the Vatican has sought ways to regain its power and even extend it to total global control.

Ignatius of Loyola is a key player in this aspect.  He and his six friends founded the Jesuit Order in 1534, and it received official Papal sanction in the year 1540. Ignatius became the Jesuit Order's first General. The Illuminati secret society then emerged.Ignatius Loyola was the Founder of the Jesuit Order, the "Spiritual Army" of the Roman Catholic Church, and he was also the Founder of the Witchcraft group, The Illuminati!

It is very clear that the Jesuit Army was merely a Witchcraft group that was used to spread Roman Catholic doctrine throughout the whole world! That is what the Jesuits are for... they are used to undo all that Protestantism has done, and to gain back lands and people that the Church has lost to Protestantism. One of the ways that they do this in todays world is by ecumenism.

Now here is how The Babylonic religion (as “Christianised”  and continued by the Roman Catholic church) is linked to the New Age of today and shows how the Vatican is using new age in its globalisation agenda.

The ancient name for Babylonian Mysticism (or finding ways to get in touch with "The One", "The All", or Satan) was called "Illuminism". The Babylonians who were initiated into the Mystery Religion were said to be in possession of Illumination or THE INNER LIGHT. Supposedly, this meant they had been ENLIGHTENED or aware of the fact that they were gods. (See Encyclopedia Brittanica, Vol. 14, 1910, pg. 320)

The Western equivalent to this Eastern Mysticism is the Hermeticism or Gnosticism. The Gnostics were said to possess the secret knowledge that they were in reality, "Little gods", and that Lucifer was the rightful Ruler of this World! The name Lucifer actually means Morning Star or The Illuminated One (light bearer). Thus, the various Mystery Religions taught that it is Lucifer (or Satan) who gives us light and shows us that we are God and have no need of repentance, but that we need only realize the "God within" and bring it to it's full potential.

Various Secret Societies throughout the Ages have taught this Babylonian Mysticism, because they knew that these Mysteries were based upon the doctrine of Luciferianism. They were known for centuries as "The Illuminati". Their name was derived from Lucifer's name: "The Illuminated One”.

The illuminati has spread its tentacles throughout the world through infiltrating organisations and founding secret societies to work together for globalisation. The most powerful bankers, the Rothchild’s and the Bilderberger organisation have such Vatican links.

In summary of the question “who runs the world and the global scheme of things? “

The answer is as follows:
God is the overseer who will intervene when necessary but because of man’s rebellion toward God He allows satan to control them through political and religious powers. These powers are networked together to form a united purpose to unite and rule the world by satan using his representative the “ac” as the world leader. God will allow this for a short time but will then bring satan’s empire crashing down. Then the church will reign with Christ for all eternity.

A Late Addition to this report, made on 18 May 2010. Subsequent to this report 2 other post have been written that further show how the political, economic and religious conspiracies are fitting together. Please read these reports:

The Manhattan Declaration and Westminster 2010 Declaration. A New Globalised Ecumenical Movement Emerging


Comparing How To Be Truly Saved (The Biblical Way) To The Nicky Gumbel (Of Alpha Courses) False Way  

and the comments written on those reports.



So the cry goes up now,  “come out of Babylon”  and “do not participate in her sins”.

John,

Thanks for all your hard work - and thank you for responding to my email - you encouraged me when I needed it the most.

I will say again - you have been a very positive influence in my life.

Good work John, I have been looking forward to this.
I have only glanced through as yet, I want to print it off to save my eyes (if that's ok?)
Every blessing

I have used my usual 'handle' now that I feel confident with you and you know me for myself.

Thanks John, I will do as Sue here, print this off in order to keep it, and also to save my eyes. Keep up your work here and hello as well to Tony again.

Tit 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Tit 2:12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Tit 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
Tit 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Tit 2:15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

I have had further family upset, and have also been away for my hubby's birthday. So each time I try to digest this article, something happens to prevent it - the little I have read is facinating and I am determined to get into it sooner rather than later.

I wondered if you have heard of 'Prophecy Update'. I find world news related to prophecy so encouraging, and to date find this site fast moving,intelligent and on the ball, by far the best of its kind imo.

Site owner is Dr.Scott Sykes.

Hi Sue

Sorry to hear about further upset. May the Lord intervene and bring peace, showing the light of His truth to the minds and hearts of your whole family. May the veil be removed and they see clearly the truth so that the truth will set them free.

I have just completed having a look at Prophecy Update. Yes it seems good for information. However, I cannot find anything on his blog which gives any clues to his personal faith, so do not know what his faith is.

His profile mentions he is into Hillsong music, which gives me some cause for concern.

He only ever seems to discuss prophecy issues. That is fine to a point, but it could mean that he is overbalanced on just one area. My observation is that Christians who get too caught up in prophecy become "almost" heretical as they miss and forget the most important parts of our faith and have an unhealthy hunger for the apocalypse.

As you can see from my blog, I do see the importance of being a watchman, but also try to be balanced by declaring the WHOLE counsel of God.

For the benefit of newsworthy articles I see no harm in reading his items. I may even decide to include him in my list of news reporters. However, I will read his articles with reservation based on what I have already said.

John Chingford said...

Hi Tony

Thanks for your news item from the Tony Blair Faith Foundation.

I have published it on my post entitled "Tony Blair Faith Foundation, Rick Warren PEACE Agenda & One World Political Religious Government" as it seems more appropriate there.

Sorry I haven't replied until now. Been very busy. Also seeking the Lord as to what I should post next. I stated before that I would post articles on why we should support Israel (according to the scriptures). I will be focussing on that soon.

Also, I feel led to write on the subject "the marks/evidences of being filled with the Holy Spirit" according to the scriptures.

God bless your heart! I am SO pleased to see you here.

John
Sean is amazingly insightful to all thing military, especially connected with the end times. Sean all too often leaves me speechless, and that’s hard to do!

John Chingford said...

Hi EI,

I received and read your longer comment but would prefer to publish it onto a more appropriate post. However, I do not have an appropriate one at the moment.

I have emailed you, to your personal email address, discussing it with you and seeking your advice.

Expected Imminently said...

Hello John
I have waited to write about your report in order to think about what you were NOT saying and why?

As one familiar with the issue, it was disappointing, as I was expecting further in-depth information on the subject; as it was, the only thing I did not know was the phrase ‘Common Purpose’. For this reason, it is pointless notifying men like Dave Hunt, David Reagan even Bob Mitchell and the like, of your report, as they are already well versed on the topic. Indeed it is evident that ‘it’ is gathering momentum as I write.

However, you did make it plain in your introduction the reason for your caution, which seems to be why you wrote so little on such a huge subject. I gather that your aim was to present a careful introduction to those who know absolutely nothing at all, about the sinister background to world affairs i.e. Nimrod, Apollyon, Illuminati, order out of chaos etc; etc!

So this is not a criticism of your report, rather a setting it into the proper context of the new, uninformed believer, for which it is perfectly acceptable.

God bless your work John.

P.S.
I have just seen your post to me and will TRY to log onto my email next.(It is SUCH a pain).
Sue

John Chingford said...

Thanks EI

Your observation is completely spot on. As I spent time on producing the report I believe the Holy Spirit was reminding me of what issues we should and should not focus on. At the end of the day, we are encouraged to keep focussed on Jesus and not on the events that surround us.

I wanted to say much more about Common Purpose but there are others (with much more insight than me, on the subject) who can be more informative.

My purpose was simply to show a birds eye view of the events on planet earth, showing how things all fit together into ONE global (satanic) conspiracy but that we need not be concerned as one day (soon) Jesus will reign (with his saints) forever.

Having said this, I think it WOULD be good to notify the people you mentioned to read my report.

The reason I say this is because their visitors (as you say) may get too informed and fearful into the seriousness of individual organisations without seeing the full picture. I am trying to present the full picture and not get so caught up that we cannot "see the wood for the trees".

As I prepared the report, it seems like God was leading me to show the full picture rather than being too informative.

Thanks again my sister and bless you.

John Chingford said...

Hi EI again,

I forgot to mention. Yes, the aim of my entire blog is to keep things simple and to the point, with main purpose to win the uninformed to Christ. The purpose of equipping Christians is to enable them to win their contacts to Jesus also.

So my blog aims to disciple/encourage believers to win others and also reach unbelievers directly. Therefore, I want to ensure my articles keep to the point of the blog and tackle/report on the main issues in a concise way rather than getting caught up into massively long reports. I am hoping to write "readable" reports in order to grab and maintain everyone's attention and keep them interested. So yes you were right!

John, I'm curious as to your thoughts about the global leaders being Nephilim.

John Chingford said...

Hi again SOT

There seem to be a lot of organisations jumping onto the bandwagon of the Nephilim. Whilst I was putting my report together I noticed David Icke (new age alien conspiracist)was leading a lot of people towards the idea that the World leaders were all from the Nephilim/Alien/dinosaur seed. As New Ageists like David Icke and other weird groups are preaching this, we should be very wary.

There are also many watchman who endorse Chuck Missler, but I have reservations because he also puts forward the Nephilim "mixed seed" teaching.

I may or may not tackle this in the future. I have reservations in this whole topic because I ask the questions: "is it important and is it helpful to know?", "how will it change our witness, faith and service to the Lord to know whether it is true or not?", "if it is satanic teaching, could it harm christians to get caught up in this whole thinking?

I take the premise that if the scripture spells it out, then we need to know - if it is shrouded in mystery because very little is spoken on it, then it is NOT important.

Also I take the stand that we should NEVER make a doctrine or presumption based on a few verses of scripture if the main teachings of scripture speaks otherwise, ie a few verses of scripture cannot counter what large chunks of scripture teach as a whole. If the few verses of scripture seem to speak in contradiction to the majority of the bible then maybe the interpretation (not the verses)are incorrect. Maybe we should consider those verses in the light of other scripture.

I wonder if the teaching about Nephilim is one of the subjects the person of God should not get caught up in re Titus 3:9 "But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain".

Okay, having said all that, I did contact Bodie Hodge of Answers In Genesis, who is a specialist on the Nephilim subject. I will paste the email chat we had on the next comment

John Chingford said...

This was the reply I received to my first email to Bodie. I have to put it into several comments as it is very large:

Part 1:
Bodie: Thank you for contacting Answers in Genesis. It is always a pleasure hearing thoughts about the Nephilim.

John: If it is true that any Godly offspring or chosen by God (whether from Seth or not) who followed God's ways, could be considered as sons of God, why would they want to intermarry/mingle with ungodly women?

Bodie: I see your point, but even today, Christians who are called “sons of God” (Galatians 3:26) marry ungodly people.

John: If the Godly were Sons of God, wouldn't that act of disobedience to God in intermarrying render them as no longer a son of God? I mean, if they were Godly, how is it they were no different from the unGodly in that they did the same things?

Bodie: That is exactly the point, they fell away in the same way Solomon did. Further, they permitted to let their children be trained in the ungodly ways. If people were living nearly 900 years, as per the lineage from Adam to Noah, and God’s countdown to the Flood when discussing these sons of God and their children, was 120 years before (Genesis 6:3). Then this means that by the time of the Flood, these people who were called by a godly title traded that in for “wickedness”. For many of these godly people, “sons of God”, as they were previously known, died in the Flood.

Wouldn't that mean that the Sons of God could not be sinful humans, even though they may have been chosen by grace as flag bearers for God.

This would make them no less human than Solomon. Keep in mind that being called “sons of God” didn’t make them perfect or sinless in their actions. Adam was called a son of God (Luke 3:38), Israelites (Hosea 1:10, sons of the living God) and Christians are called sons of God (Galatians 3:26). However, Adam made his mistakes and we make ours. There is no reason to assume these sons of God in Genesis 6 were without their mistakes but that doesn’t make them any less human.

But this argument actually hurts other views worse, like the fallen angel view. Why would fallen angels be dubbed sons of God – especially with their blatant hate and continual sin against God?

Besides God did not say "be fruitful but only with the Godly".

Keep in mind that when God originally made this command it was in a perfect world where there were no ungodly (Genesis 1:28). J

Therefore, was it a sin say for Seth to marry one of Cain's daughters? Were they not instructed to fill the earth with children? How could they do it without intermarrying in the early days?

Even Cain, being a murderer, still had semblance of God and even spoke to the Lord. So we need to be careful of assuming that these initial generations were rather ungodly. God didn’t wipe them out. In fact, it took 10 generations for that to happen. So marring among each others lineages wouldn’t have been crossing much of a godly versus ungodly line – especially off the start (remember Adam was alive to teach them too).

The biggest distinction between Cain’s line and others lines, if any, would have been distance. Recall that Cain was banished to the land of wandering (Nod – Genesis 4:16) where he built a city (v. 17). Most likely his descendants were isolated so intermarrying may have been limited at first.

Though there is no reason to assume they didn’t intermarry later on – after all something from Cain’s line must have made it through – there are people who play the harp, like David did, and flute; Genesis 4:21 His brother’s name was Jubal. He was the father of all those who play the harp and flute. Jubal is of Cain’s lineage and perhaps some of the wives of Noah’s sons have him as an ancestor.

John Chingford said...

Part 2:

John: Although I like the case you present I have problems seeing why simple marriage between fallen human beings (for all have sinned) would be SO bad that God would need to exercise such a terrible judgement on ALL mankind, beasts etc.

Bodie: The Bible doesn’t say that marriages between them were the reason for the judgment. Genesis 6:5 says: Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

So the reason was such great sin and wickedness. But the sheer fact that marriages and the types were mentioned in context reveals that this played a part. Recall what God later reveals to Malachi (2:15): But did He not make them one, Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.

The Lord was seeking godly offspring and Malachi takes this reference back to the beginning (making them one – Genesis 2:24). Paul affirms this too when he said to the Corinthians:

2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?

A consistent God would seek godly offspring in each generation. So a marriage to the ungodly resulted in ungodly offspring. The fact that the godly fell from their godliness (remember they were not seen as righteous either and died in the Flood) and their children and grandchildren weren’t either.

Exodus 20:3 says: "You shall have no other gods before Me.

The 10 Commandments are transcendent laws (e.g. it was wrong for Cain to murder, even prior to Moses being presented with the 10 Commandment, etc.) So it would have been wrong for anyone to have other gods besides God. And finding a wife among the ungodly and letting one’s children grow in ways that opposed God easily accounts for such wickedness and sin that God ultimately judged with a Flood.

John: The only thing which could be so terrible would be that the whole world had become so rebellious against God with great hatred for God led by the one who hates God the most.

Bodie: We agree completely here. Satan surely played his part didn’t he? But consider this point, against the angelic view where fallen angels bred with women. According to that view those angels who did this are sent under judgment in chains, etc. (These verses are commonly used:

2 Peter 2:4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;
Jude 1:6 And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;)

If Satan were leading this cause of impregnating women, why is Satan not bound like this in Hell? For we see Satan’s actions later with Job and even tempting Christ.

John Chingford said...

Part3

John: Therefore there must have been terrible occultic/magic practices going on which resulted in corrupted and demonic humanity with humans becoming deformed/unnatural.

Bodie: I wouldn’t discount that some of this was indeed happening (it was even happening in Christ’s day with demonic possession), however, they would still be human since they would be influencing man to be with women. The human kind has boundaries, and demons are not part of the human kind.

But with this, it pushes the responsibility of sin to fallen angels/demons as opposed to people. Let’s face it people can be downright sinful without the need to say “demons made me do it”. J So with this, the view leads to people being the “innocent” vessels, whereas demons should have been judged. But God still punished physical people with a physical Flood that would not have affected spiritual demons in the least.

John: Could that be the reason why Nephilim still appeared in later times because of black magic practices?

Bodie: I wouldn’t discount that this may have been a contributing factor. What I’ve found is interesting is that the Nephilim appear post-Flood, without the need of sons of God to be their fathers. This goes to show that Nephilim can appear without even the possibility of appealing to sons of God being fallen angels or influenced by fallen angels. The Nephilim in Numbers, for example, would have had parents strictly by humans. So if they come about by humans here, then it makes sense that the sons of God in Genesis 6 would require nothing more.

John: I know that the word Nephilim is not used later in the bible but you do read of giants like Goliath. In Greek Mythology you read of giants.

Bodie: True and they were in other mythologies too, such as Norse.

John: Even today there are some incredibly tall people still existing. Could this be the affect of the mix in past generations still affecting us today?

Bodie: It seems more likely that they are merely humans with genes for being very tall. Remember, we have people who are equally short. So with the filtering of genes throughout the human population would should get some variation. Another factor to helps reveal the genetic connection to giantism:

2 Samuel 21:20 Yet again there was war at Gath, where there was a man of great stature, who had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, twenty-four in number; and he also was born to the giant.

The son of giant here, also inherited that great stature (the fingers and toes are for another discussion J). Keep in mind that giants were not as common as we might think in ancient times. Otherwise, why was there a need to single them out, like Goliath. I hope this helps, and thanks for great discussion. God bless to you as well.

Part 4

2nd email to Bodie:

John: Thanks so much for your quick response! I think you have misunderstood what I was asking or the direction I was going.

1) I was not saying I believed that angels interbred with humans. I do not believe this, at the moment.

Bodie: I didn’t think you did, sorry if I gave you that impression.

John: What I was suggesting is that satan being jealous of the human beauty wanted to deform what God had made beautiful. I believe he was jealous because he lost his beauty and standing before God.

Bodie: I wouldn’t discount that this was one of Satan’s motives either. But I suggest that this would have been more for supplemental motivation to get Adam and Eve to sin in the Garden. Since Satan’s fall, he is limited, so it wouldn’t surprise me if he no longer has the ability to see true beauty because his mind is “poisoned”.

John: I believe the way that he tried to achieve this was by sending his angel servants in to mess them up with demonic possession - not demonic seed! So the HUMANS born from the daughters of men were also possessed with powers and deformity. They were totally human as they were born naturally but demonic activity messed them up "the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy".

Bodie: I would definitely leave this option open. There is no doubt that demons have inhabited people and messed with both their mind and bodies. We see examples of that in Jesus’ own day.

John: Anyway, even if angels did put their seed inside women (which I find hard to accept) it doesn't mean that the children would not be totally human. Mary had "normal" children after having Jesus.

Bodie: This may not be a good comparison though. First, there is a difference between good angels and God and second, there is a bigger difference between fallen angels and God. If you recall, God created Adam (and subsequently Eve) and breathed life into him, so God own all human life and if the Creator of the universe wants to become a man that is not a problem for Him. Angels, especially fallen angels cannot create life as God does, and so we need to be cautious about giving qualities to angels, especially the fallen ones, that God has.

John Chingford said...

Part 5:

John: Couldn't women have also been incarnate with angelic seed also?

Bodie: The Bible never says of angels to be fruitful and multiply, so there is no reason to assume they would have seed of any form. And since Jesus makes it clear angels do not marry in heaven, this is further confirmation (Matthew 22:30). There is no reason to assume that when the fallen angels sinned, they mutated to have seed either. So I would lean against this argument.

John: This would not mean necessarily that everyone born of those children would also have the mixed seed. We do not read that post-flood activity by angels stopped. The only difference after the flood is that God said He would not judge the world again in this same manner.

Bodie: We do see their activities up to the time of Christ. I’ve tried to step back and look at the spiritual aspects of this. Let’s assume for a moment that the nephilim (offspring) were the way they were due to fallen angels (be it by interbreeding or merely demonic possession). Would the people be entirely to blame for their actions then – especially enough for God to exercise judgment with a Flood? Consider Christ, the Son of God – did He judge those who had demons, or help them?

John: 2) Like you, I do not believe that God judged the world just because of intermarriage and agree that it was because of such wickedness of men.

Bodie: Good. I guess it was just the way it was typed.

John: However, I am suggesting that the great wickedness evolved through the worship of demons etc and probable mass demonic possession.

Bodie: The Bible does say this though. And it wouldn’t surprise me if some of this was going on.

John: Why would it mention in Genesis 6 about the sons of God intermarrying as a forerunner to then discuss how wicked man had become, if it were not related together in some way?

Bodie: Like you, I believe it was related. Consider how God instructed the Israelites (sons of the living God – Hosea 1:10) not to intermarry with pagans surrounding them (Deuteronomy 7:3-4). The reason was to keep them and their children from being led astray to these false pagan deities. Even the wisest of all men, Solomon was led astray by his pagan wives (1 Kings 11:1-4).

Paul even reaffirms this with Christians (sons of God – Galatians 3:26) in 2 Corinthians 6:14-16, not to be yoked with unbelievers.

John Chingford said...

Part 6:

John: In the context it seems that the sons of God going in to the daughters of men brought the wickedness on earth to a climax.

Bodie: I think the stark contrast that God uses e.g. “sons” versus “daughters” and “of God” versus “of men”, stand diametrically opposed. This is significant. Consider Christianity (God is the authority) versus humanism (man is the authority – remember humanism goes back to Eve when she elevated herself, a human, above God and His Word).

“Of man” in this instance reveals who the ultimate authority was for these daughters – pagan, i.e. humanistic. So the spiritual heads, sons, were giving up their spiritual privilege as the head to the pagan women (daughters) (1 Corinthians 11:7-9) and being led astray to false gods, particularly humanistic thought – just like Solomon. And this makes sense in light of the context, where these people were men of renown – i.e. making a name for themselves among men. Contrary to their hopes, not one of their names is remembered by God. I believe this was designed by God to show what this philosophy leads to.

John: It was obviously important enough to mention as a key to the judgement. This is why I believe there must have been terrible occultic practices going on, resulting in men being so corrupted by evil that even their human bodies became deformed - not necessarily because of angelic seed.

Bodie: Like I said, I wouldn’t discount this entirely, but it is not necessary.

John: 3) You mentioned God was seeking godly offspring. Remember in 1 Cor 7 Paul stated that even the children of an unbelieving partner could be sanctified by the faith of one parent. Obviously that doesn't mean the child is saved until they make a decision for Christ themselves, but it does give the impression of being a godly offspring. So I am not sure it is correct to say that intermarriage necessarily brings about an ungodly offspring.

Bodie: This command by Paul was specifically regarding a couple that was already married, and one the two gets saved:

…If any brother has a wife who does not believe, and she is willing to live with him, let him not divorce her. And a woman who has a husband who does not believe, if he is willing to live with her, let her not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy. But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But God has called us to peace. For how do you know, O wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, O husband, whether you will save your wife?

Also note that Paul permits the unbeliever to depart. But this is not a command given to those who are single. They are not to marry an unbeliever as Per 2 Corinthians 6:14-16. The children are clean and sanctified, but not saved, as with the husband.

John Chingford said...

Part 7:

John: Look at Bathsheba, David and Solomon. David's act with (probably?) a gentile woman and the subsequent later birth of Solomon through this "daughter of men" did not stop Solomon being a "son of God"?

Bodie: Bathsheba was an Israelite, not a gentile, who would be under the term “sons of the living God – Hosea 1:10). Bathsheba was the daughter of Eliam (2 Samuel 11:3). Elaim was the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite (2 Samuel 23:34). Those from Giloh (Gilonites) were Israelites who inhabited that area after the conquest of Joshua and was specifically given to the Israelites that were from the tribe of Judah – the same tribe David came out of.

Bathsheba’s husband however, was a Hittite, some of the few descendants of Canaan that were not wiped out by Joshua. And since, assimilated into the Israelite clans and fought beside them. In fact, Bathsheba’s husband was one of David’s 30 fighting men (1 Chronicles 11:41).

John: In fact, the line of Jesus came through a gentile Ruth.

Bodie: Prior to Ruth marrying an Israelite, she became an Israelite though (religious change, not by birth of course – Ruth 1:16). This is not forbidden – the same happened with Rahab and she too can be found in the lineage of Christ. This is also acceptable for Christians – for example, if an unbelieving man becomes a Christian, then a Christian woman can marry him and vice versa.

John: As long as one partner is right with God at some stage in their life, the child can be sanctified.

Bodie: Sanctification doesn’t necessary mean they will be godly or be saved. We find in today’s church parents who are both Christians and the children are quite sinful, rebellious, and unsaved. Sanctification is but the start for them and it is a good start otherwise, there would be no reason for Paul to have them remain in the marriage, if the unbeliever is willing to stay.

Well…I hope this helps explain it a bit more. I think I’ve read so much on the nephilim in the past few years, I’m now ready for something easier - maybe evolution ha ha ha.

John Chingford said...

In summary, I would say that world leaders are not Nephilim but they are normal sinful human beings (like any of us would be without Jesus)influenced by satan and his hoards. "our battle is not against flesh and blood but against principalities ......" Eph 6.

In Daniel we see that the Archangel Michael was hindered by the princes of Persia and Greece. He wasn't talking about men (or flesh and blood) but the demonic forces (principalities in the heavenly places) working over and through these men.

Incidentally how could Obama be of the same genealogic Nepholim seed?

John Chingford said...

Hi

I have now opened a new post entitled "Are the global leaders Nephilim?". I have copied/pasted all the comments below which relate to that subject to that post. Please continue the chats (which relate specifically to that subject) there rather than here, as I feel it would be better there.

Thanks

John,

Your latest post about the Alpha Course,is right on time - I have a very close friend who took the alpha course about a year ago -my friend asked me if I wanted to go, and for some reason I was not interested at all - I did not know much about it then, but saw some information posted on Moriel about 3 weeks ago.

I started to discuss the dangers of the course with her and she listened, but is not convinced as she stated "well I am sure there are people out there who would endorse it" - and my response was "yes, and Rick Warren is one of them" - to my surprise she had been given a copy of his book Purpose Driven Life, I then explained to her that in doing research - there are now many dual course offerings with "Alpha Course" along with "Purpose Driven Life" courses.

Did you realize these were being offered in some arenas? So, now I will share this article with her hoping it will get through.

I ran across this while searching for info on Alpha Course - I did not get the chance to find out how credible it is, but if true, it is interesting to see the financial and Illuminati connections behind the course - here is a small excerpt:

The congregation and friends of Holy Trinity Brompton financed the Alpha development, and resource courses were sold at a profit.

Since the goal was to involve the whole world in their project, Alpha International was founded in 2001.

Capitol investment became worldwide, and was headed by a Jewish banker, Ken Costa, Chairman of Alpha Partners.

This banker just happened to be Vice Chairman of UBS -Warburg, London. UBS stands for Union Bank of Switzerland-Warburg. The banking firm of Walburg has long been linked to the giant international Marxist Rothschild banking conglomerate based in the City of London.

Isn't it strange that Warburg would be running a Christian organization?

John Chingford said...

Thanks Tony,

Very applicable to the global scheme of things.

Tony Cox said...

Hi John,

Wanted to send this your way - transcript of Rick Warren in 2007 endorsing Alpha and mentioning Nicky Gumbel and Ken Coasta:

Rick was speaking about Alpha on a special video filmed in India, where his organization is working with Alpha and the Billy Graham Association in the My Hope India project through which millions came to Christ in the spring of 2007.

Full Transcript of the Testimony by Rick Warren:

"Over 30 years ago in London, England, God began a movement that has now spread all around the world. It’s called the Alpha course, begun by my dear friends Nicky Gumbel, Ken Costa and other friends. We’ve seen this course expand to be used to reach literally millions of people to Christ.

If you have never heard of Alpha, I want to challenge you to check it out. It is one of the most effective evangelism tools for the 21st century.

The Alpha course can be used in three different ways. First, it can be used with people who have absolutely no religious background at all. It can be used with seekers or enquirers. It is a good way to bring people to a small group study who would never be caught dead in a church – they’ll take that first step, they’ll sit on a couch with some friends and examine the claims of Christ and what is really does mean to be a follower of Jesus. Millions of people have come to Christ through this way.

A second way you can use it is to revitalize your Church, to bring new renewal in a Church which has lost its vision, that has lost its commitment, that has been on auto pilot for some time. Many, many traditional Churches, mainstream, mainline Churches have used Alpha to find new growth and new renewal as people come alive and rediscover the vision of the great message of the good news.
A third way you can use it is to help with new believers. It is a great first step course, because it goes over the basics of why we believe what we believe and what we do believe.

Many of you have heard of the 40 Days of Purpose campaign that is also being used by God mightily around the world. 40 Days of Purpose and Alpha fit together like hand in glove. It really doesn’t matter which one you do first. If you have done 40 Days of Purpose, you need to do Alpha: if you have done Alpha, you need to do 40 Days of Purpose, because these two are similar programs inspired by the Holy Spirit to

•deepen and develop the Church
•help us fellowship deeper
•help us grow more like Christ
•help us learn to serve in ministry
•help us to share our faith in mission

So, as the author of The Purpose Driven Church and The Purpose Driven Life, I, Rick Warren, want to tell you that Alpha has my 100% endorsement and I would encourage you to use it in small groups in your Church and everywhere that you can.
God bless you.

John Chingford said...

Thanks Tony

I wonder if you could comment on your observations of that report by Rick Warren? By the way, I found the same article on an "alpha USA" website as follows:

http://alphausa.org/Mobile/default.aspx?group_id=1000041932&article_id=1000047767

A copy of these last 2 comments can also be found on the post about Nocky Gumbel. These latest comments help to show even more how everything seems to fit together in the global political, economic and religious conspiracy

Tony Cox said...

John,

I should have been clear in my post, if Rick Warren is tied in with or endorsing Alpha - that should raise a BIG GIANT RED FLAG!

I was always suspect of Alpha, and actually had no idea that Rick Warren had any association or endorsements of the program until approximately 3 weeks ago when researching for a friend of mine who attended the course as well as owning a copy of his book.

The information you have provided in the past on Rick Warren should surely be enough to raise a red flag for anyone who may have an interest in his philosophy or who he associates with.
