REV. MOON - A "JOHN THE BAPTIST" FOR ANTICHRIST?
NEWS BRIEF: "Rev. Moon holds coronation at Capitol: Religious leader says he's here to 'save the world's 6 billion people' ", WorldNetDaily, June 14, 2004
"Dressed in a floor-length cape, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon was dubbed the king of peace at a coronation ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building attended by several members of Congress. Moon is the founder of the Unification Church currently known as The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification. There were reportedly 81 members of Congress total at the event ... The religious leader, sounding like a self-proclaimed messiah, is quoted as saying: 'In the context of heaven's providence, I am God's ambassador, sent to earth with His full authority. I am sent to accomplish His command to save the world's 6 billion people, restoring them to heaven with the original goodness in which they were created'."
The Washington Post also carried this story, front page.
NEWS BRIEF: "The Rev. Moon Honored at Hill Reception", By Charles Babington and Alan Cooperman, Washington Post Staff Writers, Wednesday, June 23, 2004; Page A01
"More than a dozen lawmakers attended a congressional reception this year
honoring the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in which Moon declared himself the Messiah
and said his teachings have helped Hitler and Stalin be "reborn as new
persons." At the March 23 ceremony in the Dirksen Senate Office Building,
Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-Ill.) wore white gloves and carried a pillow holding
an ornate crown that was placed on Moon's head. The Korean-born businessman
and religious leader then delivered a long speech saying he was "sent to
Earth . . . to save the world's six billion people. . . . Emperors, kings and
presidents . . . have declared to all Heaven and Earth that Reverend Sun Myung
Moon is none other than humanity's Savior, Messiah, Returning Lord and True
Parent' ... The event's organizers flew in nearly 100 honorees from all 50 states
to receive state and national peace awards. The only "international crown
of peace awards" went to Moon and his wife."
We have reviewed a 21-minute video clip of this "Crown of Peace" event. The link to this video may be found at: http://s95177230.onlinehome.us/fmv/crown.mov
Let us now review the salient portions of this 21-minute clip, for it reveals the true nature and purpose of this crowning event.
* A "Crown of Peace" Ceremony was held March 23, 2004, at the Dirksen Senate building in Washington, D.C.
* A world without national boundaries is about to begin. The world will be getting rid of war, striving for peace under God
* The world is now surmounting national and religious barriers. Such a world of peace is now upon us.
* The opening speech was given by a Baptist minister, Walter Fauntroy Another speaker apologized to all Native Americans for the "Veil of Tears" through which our American ancestors forced them to pass. You see, "reconciliation" among all peoples is the recurring theme of this ceremony.
* A Jewish rabbi proclaimed that a miracle of religious unification had occurred at this meeting and blew his Shofar horn to proclaim the imminent coming of the "true Messiah".
* A speaker then read Moon's poem, "Crown of Glory", which he wrote as a 16-year-old boy. This poem proclaimed that anyone who spreads this gospel of global reconciliation and peace can be crowned with a "Crown of Glory". During the ceremony, numerous people were so crowned, including some American legislators.
* Another speaker proclaimed the Moon, a "man of God's own heart, who has come among us in the spirit of Jesus the Christ." It is time for America to open her heart to this one, because when the heart is opened, the mind follows. Moon and his wife are then mightily praised. These are some of the titles bestowed:
** True Father and True Mother
** Champions of Peace and Reconciliation
** King and Queen of Peace
** King of Kings
This last proclamation really caught my ear, for this is one of the titles reserved for Jesus Christ. However, throughout this clip, Jesus is really represented as only the local King of the Jews and the head of Christianity. He is never proclaimed as the World Messiah. Later in the clip, we saw demonstrations by Moon's group, "Heart to Heart" as they marched and demonstrated in Israel. In Jerusalem, a monotheistic ceremony was held (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) in which leaders from each of these religions presented a crown to Jesus, symbolized by placing such a crown in an empty chair. The moderator said that the first step in ending the Middle East conflict was to proclaim Jesus as the "King of the Jews".
Further, this moderator stated that the basis of the conflict in the Middle East was religious; therefore, religious reconciliation must occur before political solutions can be achieved. The clip then intoned, "the age-old question is 'Who is Jesus, really' "? By crowning Jesus as "King of the Jews", this question is supposedly answered so mankind can continue with its efforts to build a Global Governance, Peace, and Reconciliation. This "solution" was said to be very important for the success of the "Middle East Peace Initiative", a code word for the "Road Map" which President Bush and leaders of the European Union have been promoting for so very long.
This Moon clip states that religious reconciliation is to occur between members of the Monotheistic Faiths, Judaism, Christianity, Islam. Once these three religions can reconcile, a peace breakthrough can occur in the Middle East. This emphasis upon achieving a spiritual reconciliation between these three faiths reminds me of the same theme sounded by the New England Director of the House of Theosophy on August 18, 1991, when I was sneaked into a "Members-only" seminar. We have posted a detailed write-up of these remarks on our Website, NEWS1052, "Complete Seminar Notes From House of Theosophy Seminar Which Reveals Plans For Last Stages of New World Order". The New England Director presented this seminar; his name was Bill Lambert.
These notes of 1991 accurately predicted the Antichrist Conferences of August 28 - September 10, 2000, at which the New World Order was officially "birthed" into existence (NEWS1395, NEWS1403, NEWS1402). Furthermore, these notes then accurately foretold of the plan to produce a level of threat of war which would provide the pressure needed to see the reconciliation of all monotheistic religions so Antichrist could then appear. Only 18 days after the conclusion of the Antichrist conferences, Arafat began his terrible Intifada (September 29, 2000). The pressure of this unrelenting war has kept this plan proceeding forward.
Listen to excerpts of Lambert's seminar remarks:
"Sometime between 1985-2010, the following scenario will unfold, depending only on the right set of circumstances: Moslem and Jewish areas in Jerusalem will be combined with Christian to create the New Jerusalem Covenant. All religions will convene to celebrate three (3) religious festivals simultaneously ... This celebration of these three combined Festivals will create the New World Order Religion and will be the spiritual equivalent to the political United Nations ... Then, and only then, will it be possible to build a combination Temple/Church/Mosque in Jerusalem."
"Bill further stated that 'any purely political settlement in the Middle East would not, by itself, bring peace. In other words, a purely political settlement would leave the religious nature of the problem unsolved'." Listen:
"Any permanent solution to the Middle East conflict would also have to see the religious portion of the problem solved. Once this religious problem is solved, then the power and influence of the Orthodox Jews in Israel would permanently decline."
Then, Bill Lambert revealed that, for this plan to work, a war pressure must be created and maintained. Listen:
"The impetus toward this type of settlement is made possible only because of a general fear of war. This fear of war must be maintained until the desired political and religious changes have been instituted." Once these plans have been fulfilled, and a merger of the three monotheistic faiths in the Middle East is achieved, the world will call upon the Pope for the final action."
"At the proper moment in history, the Pope will visit the combined Jewish/Christian/Moslem
sector of Jerusalem to announce that all religions should be combined into one.
This action will then finally break the Middle East logjam." [NOTE: This
revelation brands the Pope as the False Prophet of Revelation 13:11-18.]
The final several minutes of this Crown of Peace audio/video clip, above, uses almost identical symbolism.
To complete this "reconciliation" between Judaism and Christianity, the dividing nature of the Cross of Calvary obviously must be "dealt with". How does Rev. Moon intend to remove this dividing issue? His organization issued the Jerusalem Declaration on May 18, 2003, Seoul World Summit, to accomplish this objective. Listen to its principles:
* "Repent for the dark parts of our past, and seek a bright future together."
* "Christians repented for 'glorifying the execution which ended Jesus' physical life' and 'perpetrating (sic) a history of anti-Semitism"
* "Jewish leaders sought to 'liberate themselves once and for all from the burden of Jesus' crucifixion."
Can you imagine any greater blasphemy against the Cross of Jesus Christ than these last two declarations? These "Christians" who participated in this second statement are not like any Christians I have ever seen. They blaspheme God's Holy Word and the painful substitutionary death Jesus suffered for all mankind. The Apostle Paul stated that we are to glory in the Cross of Jesus! Listen:
"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" [Gal 6:14]
If these "Christians" are "repenting" for obeying Galatians 6:14, they are most probably not genuinely saved, but are the type of Liberal, Laodicean Christian of whom Jesus warns in Revelation 3:14-20]. What did Jesus say to these type of Christians?
"... because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." [Rev 3:16]
This is the spirit of Antichrist. These people are further in danger of receiving direct judgment from the Holy Spirit. Listen:
"... with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." [ 2 Thess 2:10-12]
The stakes are high for these deceived people calling themselves Christian. However, this type event is precisely what we have been expecting as we move into the time when Antichrist comes to the world scene. In other words, this type of blasphemous event can clearly be considered a sign Antichrist is close to appearing!
The Jews will naturally welcome their role in this "reconciliation" process. For 2,000 years, Jews have chafed at the Christian insistence that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah and they missed Him. During the incredibly brutal religious/political reign of Roman Catholicism, Jews have been persecuted and murdered under the Catholic Cross. Adolf Hitler consistently used ambulances adorned with a red cross on a white background to transport Jews to the death chambers.
The Christian Cross has been a great stumbling block to the Jew for two millennia. Therefore, this declaration should bring great joy to Jewish leadership, as it not only corresponds to their long-held belief about Jesus, but it also verifies the theological position they have always taken. Their religious stand against Jesus is now verified by this declaration!
Before we review the blasphemy contained on these two pictures, focus on the background. These people are literally burying the Cross of Jesus Christ in a deep hole in the ground! Look at the shape of the hole. The hole has been dug in the shape of the cross and now that cross is being buried in the ground. What a symbolism of destroying true Christianity! Satan has been waiting 2,000 years for the day when mankind would bury genuine Christianity deep into a grave.
Satan has been trying to bury Christianity for the past 2,000 years. The fact that he is able to symbolically bury the cross now means that the Holy Spirit is withdrawing His restraining power so that Antichrist can arise. Listen to this prophecy:
"Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition) ... For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, but it is restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way." [2 Thessalonians 2:3, 7]
Before we go on, notice that this verse does NOT say that the Holy Spirit is taken out of the world, but just "taken out of the way". The picture is that of a man standing in the doorway of his home, barring entry to a group of men wanting to come in. Suddenly, after successfully barring them for a while, the man steps aside, allowing the men to enter his home. The opposition of the homeowner has been "taken out of the way". This is the prophetic picture here. The Holy Spirit gradually withdraws His restraining power until He takes that restraining power away.
The Holy Spirit never leaves the world during the Tribulation! He never leaves the world with the Rapture of God's saints. This is one of the lies of traditional Christian prophecy teaching as espoused and distributed by Tim LaHaye, Timothy Ice, and others. [NEWS1332 and NEWS1818 for full details]
For the first time since Jesus died on the cross, Satan has been able to stage a major ceremony involving all the world's religions to bury Christianity. Can you sense the closeness of the prophetic hour? Antichrist surely is close.
However, Rev. Moon and his organizations are using another tactic to bury genuine Christianity. They are carrying out a program entitled, "A Cross For A Crown". Under this program, a pastor of a so-called Christian church agrees to take down the cross which has adorned the sanctuary for a very long time and replace it with a crown! Listen:
NEWS BRIEF: "Report on Good Friday Service", FFWPU News, Friday, April 18th, 2003, 7:00pm service at Opportunity Baptist Church
"Each service followed the same schedule with the objective of taking down the cross and putting up the crown. We bought a beautiful golden crown with jewels which was placed on a small red velvet pillow sitting on a golden tray. An 11 x 14 color photo of the crown was beautifully photographed ahead of time and framed to be left with the pastor. We made 300 palm crosses which were given to everyone, then exchanged for a 2 1/4 inch lapel button with a large color picture of a cross."
How incredible is this development? Christian churches are being encouraged to take down their venerable cross and replace it with a crown. Notice the picture, above, as representatives of Rev. Moon's organization stand next to the pastor who is holding a picture of the crown. While you may think that a crown is just as much a symbol of Jesus Christ as is the cross, you must also be aware that a crown is also closely associated with Antichrist during the Tribulation Period.
"And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer." [Rev 6:1-2]
This is the most important picture of Antichrist riding out of heaven and on to earth to make his initial appearance. Since we have already noted that the coronation of Rev. Moon and his wife on March 23, 2004, at the U.S. Senate Dirksen Building seems directly related to the coming of the False Messiah, why should we be surprised to learn that Moon just might be working to prepare the people for the coming Son of Perdition, who is prophesied to come riding out of heaven wearing a crown!
This effort also smacks of a revival of Rosicrucianism , which reveled in their symbol of a cross within a crown.
No Christian church should ever give up their symbol of the blood-stained Cross
of Calvary so they can exchange it for a crown, especially since the impetus
to do so is coming from an Ecumenical, neo-pagan, anti-christian organization
like the Unification Church of the Rev. Sun Moon?
Now, briefly look at the writing on the first picture on the right. Notice how thoroughly Ecumenical this picture is. It contains a pertinent saying from the Qur'an (Islam), from Jesus on the Cross (Christianity), from Buddha, and from Old Testament Judaism. The way in which these sayings are printed gives the impression that each religion is equally valid, a most Antichrist idea.
We have already covered the pledges on the second picture, located at the right.
Truly, the spirit of Antichrist is sweeping this world, even as the Holy Spirit
is gradually withdrawing His restraining power. One day, probably soon, the
last bit of the Spirit's restraining power will be withdrawn and Antichrist
can arise. Can you hear the hoofbeats of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
Suddenly, at the end of this March 23 Moon film clip, the focus shifts totally to world governance through the United Nations. On several occasions, reference was made to revitalizing the United Nations. The beginning segment of this revitalization is to be a spiritual revival throughout the world in which the high religious barriers that have been constructed will be torn down, proselytizing will be a thing of the past, and everyone will just love one other. Only then can eternal peace and happiness be achieved.
The clip concludes by saying, "Now is the time for global governance centered on God".
So, what do we make of this truly Messianic initiative quietly carried out through the tacit approval of our government, as evidenced by the participants using the U.S. Senate Dirksen Building and by the attendance of 81 senators and congressmen? Was Rev. Moon crowned as THE Messiah, or was he crowned as a forerunner of Messiah, much like John the Baptist was a forerunner of Jesus Christ?
We believe he was crowned a forerunner of Messiah, to prepare the hearts of the people, in similar fashion to John the Baptist preparing the hearts of the Jews to accept the Person and Ministry of Jesus Christ. He cannot be THE Messiah because he did not arise from the "Revived Roman Empire" (Western Europe) as Daniel 9:27 requires. Further, I saw no evidence in this clip that he can prove his lineage back to King David through the Merovingian Bloodline (Da Vinci Code). Both of these elements are major requirements of the true Antichrist.
Please realize that a major conditioning and ritualistic ceremony has just taken place whose major goal was to prepare the hearts of the people to accept the claims of The Christ -- Antichrist.
With so many other signs abounding that the final birth pangs of Antichrist are close to starting, this Messianic-type coronation ceremony simply provides further proof that the world is truly close to his appearance. Let us quickly review the several reasons this coronation ceremony seems like such an important sign that Antichrist is close.
1. Rev. Moon was designated by Messianic titles, i.e., King of Kings.
2. The focus of the video clip was on "Global Peace without borders" -- a clear Messianic initiative
3. Rev. Moon is acting as a "John the Baptist" figure for Antichrist, i.e., turning the hearts of the people.
4. The focus at the end of the video clip on the reunification of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in Jerusalem clearly seems to be the fulfillment of the plan Bill Lambert of the Boston House of Theosophy shared on August 18, 1991. Once this reunification of these three monotheistic religions is complete, the Roman Catholic Pope gets to travel to Jerusalem to declare that all world's religions are one, an act which will crown him as the False Prophet (Revelation 13:11-18).
Can we now understand why Pope John Paul II has battled through Parkinson's Disease, seemingly defying death? He wants this final global religious authority. If Satan has really determined that this Pope is to be the real False Prophet, he can temporarily reverse the effects of Parkinson's, in a manner consistent with the temporary healing power of the occult which Johanna Michelsen experienced in her book, "The Beautiful Side of Evil". If the world is this close to the appearance of Antichrist, and if John Paul II is to be the False Prophet, we should expect to hear news of a "miraculous cure" of his malady. If this Pope is not to be the Second Beast, he will be quickly replaced once he is gone from the world scene.
At the time when so many signs that Antichrist is about to come to the world scene, we suddenly learn that the Rev. Moon and his wife were crowned "King of Kings" in a major ceremony in the Dirksen Building in the United States Senate. This entire program carried significant themes of Antichrist and his prophesied "Kingdom of Peace and Safety".
As we stated, above, we believe the Rev. Moon is playing the role of a "John the Baptist", preparing the hearts and minds of the people to accept the coming Antichrist. We are troubled by the distinct effort to get rid of the symbol of Christianity -- the Cross -- so it can it buried in the ground and so it can be removed from Christian churches to be replaced by a crown.
Truly, this event has the distinct flavor of the False Messiah.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
